91. CHAOS AND CREATION: CHAPTER 10: VENUS AND MARS [Quantavolution Website]
... until the seventh century B. C. Earth was menaced. The most strenuous inventions and applications of magic and religion did not avail against the horrendous god. Other behaviors of cometary Venus can be recited briefly: The comet was a god of many characters-- female, male, and androgynous [7. Thus, in the Mexican ballgame, to be described below, the Venus is male but nevertheless gives birth. Venus appeared on occasion larger than the Moon and fiercely bright. She caused the Earth to alter it ponderous ... . She brought the Sun on at least two occasions to an apparent standstill. She wore horns and trailed long tresses which, in her male form, were more evidently a phallus. She destroyed countries and people, rendering the land barren, clogged the air and soil with red dust, darkened the day, excited pandemonium and brought general starvation. She sent berserk tribes upon the warpath. She aroused a great religious fervor and claimed sacrificial victims, in great numbers. Her tresses (phallus) were cut off in a passage ...

... of magic on his side. Still other archeologists theorise that the animals were totems-- figures of ancestor animals from which different human groups or clans supposedly descended. The animals have also been interpreted as sexual symbols with certain species representing the male principle and others the female.(65) Marshack's alternative to these interpretations is that time-factoring was a basic element in the paintings and engravings, and involved the observation and notation of natural cycles including, possibly, the phases of the moon.(66) By the use of microscopy ... and hunted with the power of magic on his side.

93. HOMO SCHIZO I: Chapter 4: THE GESTALT OF CREATION [Quantavolution Website]
... and there throughout the world, acquire under quantavolutionary theory a simple logic within a single framework of explanation. A PRIMORDIAL SCENARIO Ideally, the general scenario of the hologenesis of homo schizo would provide a highly specific scenario such as the following: A pregnant twenty-one year old female of the species homo erectus frater (that is, Hominid 'X') is a member of a band of thirteen that gains its livelihood by gathering nuts, berries and herbs, and hunting small animals and choice insects in a swamp habitat. It eats roasted ... of wild fires, even spreading them to harvest a territory. It has no tools, not even reusable clubs. An aggressive older male leads the group, which has hegemony over some fifty square miles of territory. The group straggles about. The large mammals hardly disturb them, for they put on a brave front, screeching, gesticulating, baring their small teeth, and dodging adeptly. They are tree and rock climbers, and swamp floppers. They are, in effect, too much of a nuisance to bother with and ...
94. The Cosmic Mountain [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... in the highest." (213) Saturn, the Heaven Man, thus acquires the form of a cosmic giant, whose vast trunk is the mountain of the world. The sign offers us a picture of the Kosmocrator, the all-containing being embracing the male and female powers and supporting the Cosmos. Moreover, this connection of the supreme god to the cosmic pillar provides a further refutation of the common view which has the god, as our sun, leave the mountain each morning and soar across the sky to sink below the ... of his mountain, divine Zaphon... His head is wonderful. (157) It must be this cosmic hill depicted in a Phoenician ivory, reproduced by Clifford. The ivory (dated to the first millenium B.C.) shows a mountain personified as a male deity. The mountain-god holds in his hand a vase from which four streams flow in opposite directions (158). Issuing from the summit of the mount, the four rivers provide a distinct parallel to the four rivers of other traditions. The Americas "The ...
95. Quantalism: The Big Picture [Aeon Journal $]
... filial, and sororal devotion among such hymenopterans as wasps, bees, and ants. Among termites, furthermore, this devotion extends equally to males. Male reproductives remain with their mates, and male workers and soldiers exhibit fraternal solicitude equal to the sororal solicitude of their female siblings. [22 By using the term "colonies" to refer to the habitations of most hymenopteran and all isopteran species, we misleadingly suggest that these are communities-- that is, groups of cooperating families (such as primate troops or ungulate herds) ... war, however, is commonly used by entomologists to describe mass assaults by the members of one ant-nest on the members of another. [15 Sexual coercion is not as common among animals as laymen tend to assume. But the manner in which our near kinsmen, male orang-utans, obtain sexual access to females is actually described as rape by some primatologists. [16 The only non-human animals that enslave members of related species are ants. [17 Ants also domesticate other insects, such as aphids, which are often referred to as ...
96. A Catastrophic Reading of Western Cosmology [SIS C&C Review $]
... , which is above her and deserves power. The ultimate principle of the universe is stability, which Jove represents, and Mutabilitie's challenge has been nothing more than a manifestation of the principle of change, which she represents. Notice what has happened. A restless variable female rebel with male attributes has undergone a series of changes, first dilating or expanding, then becoming frustratedly aggressive, then encountering order and being forced to subside. She is quenched in favour of the masculine principle of constancy by her judge, Nature, who is ... male nor female, neither aggressive nor passive, but is rather, in the words of one critic, 'the still point of the turning world', the core or centre of the universe. She is, that is to say, the true ultimate principle, and her message is, to use this critic's word, 'rejoice'. Rejoice that chaos is not the ruler of the world, even though she may at times appear to be. Notice too what Nature then does. Having decided for male over female and for ...
97. IGNIS E COELO [Mythopedia Website]
... designation ‘ duplex Amathusia ’ for Aphrodite of Amathus (Catullus 68. 51) stems from the double sex of the Cyprian deity. She was represented in art with a beard [289. Cyprian Aphrodite had a beard and a generally male character, but she wore female vestments; she was called variously Aphroditos, deus Venus, barbata Venus (Macrobius, Saturnalia Convivia, 3.8.10-11). The bisexuality of the Near-Eastern Aphrodite-Astarte lies in the background. Thus Hermes and Aphrodite could even be fused into the bisexual figure of Hermaphroditos [290 ... in several completely different aspects of religion, such as shamanism, temple ceremonials, New Year festivals and Heroic myth. Significantly, even the prime examples of Heroes- such as Heracles and Susanowo- are associated with traditions of cross-dressing. In the service of Aphrodite-Astarte are male travestites [275. On the island of Kos sacrifice was made to Heracles by a priest wearing woman ’ s clothing, and the story was told that Heracles himself had once concealed himself in such garments [276. This is paralleled in the story of Achilles ...
98. The Israelite Origins of Monotheism and the Prohibition of Killing [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... Israelites ever since have attempted to follow this admonition. 15 Drastic reduction in numbers was not, however, the only impetus for a strong will to increase. As they were to conquer a new country, every male child was valued as a future warrior and every female as a future mother of soldiers; thus they received the absolute protection of society. These two factors clearly provide the immediate historical reason for the institutionalization of a prohibition on killing. In my estimation, however, neither the traditional nor the immediate historical reason is ... This, in turn, can only endure if its fundamental structure of father and inheriting son is preserved to the exclusion of matrilineal conventions. Similarly, the individual patriarch can only provide security for his society and for himself in sickness and old age by means of a male heir. Surrender, consequently, of the first-born is a high price to pay, as there is always the risk of being granted no further heir: the only thing more valuable to the giver is his own life (which is not offered, as the ...
99. THE DISASTROUS LOVE AFFAIR OF MOON AND MARS: PART TWO: GODS, PLANETS, MADNESS, CHAPTER 10 [Quantavolution Website]
... , attempted to rape Athena at his smithy and was repulsed. So that Athena's killing of this monster corresponds to the professed Hellenic triumph over the powerful proto-mediterranean religious culture. The mythic mind can support this idea along with the contradictory apotheosis of Athena as the ideal castrating female of psychoanalytic theory. Hephaestus has a resemblance to the Etruscan smith-god and death-demon, Tuchulcha, who dispatches people with a giant hammer. Tuchulcha is assisted by a winged demon with snakes [5, So that the composite suggests a god-monster like Typhon, a devastating ... DAY Not satisfied with setting up the production of the Love Affair, Athena, the virtuoso of Olympia, must play a leading role in it. Will it be masculine? Athena has been known to play such roles. Actually, she ends the Odyssey playing the male role of Mentor, Counselor of State. By now we know that gods can readily become transvestites. Hercules, for all his impressive masculinity, dresses and behaves like a woman when he lives in the court of Omphale, Queen of Libya. More strikingly there ...
... would prefer the passive, open-ended opiate of the "feminine" soap opera. One may be a placebo for the left brain, the other for the right. To carry this a bit further, it seems to me that the designations "male" and "female" as we have employed them here may serve a quite useful descriptive and thus analytic function if we apply them not simply to the soap opera but to television programs in general as a distinct genre of narrative. It turns out that most television shows today can ... they never occurred, would prefer the passive, open-ended opiate of the "feminine" soap opera.
