11. Kinky Sex Among The Invertebrates [Science Frontiers Website]
... and Lu, C.C.; "Sex in Giant Squid," Nature, 389:683, 1997.) The free-style penis. In the octopus and many cephalopods, the males have a special tentacle with which they insert their spermatophores under the mantle of the female. The tentacle is then retracted for future use. The male paper nautilus is more profligate with its tentacles. The paper nautilus is cephalopod which, like its cousin, the chambered nautilus, "sails the unshadowed main."* When the male detects a ... female, he avoids intimacy. It's sex at a distance. His spermatophore-bearing tentacle detaches itself from the body and swims-- under its own power-- to the female, being in effect a swimming penis. Just how this peculiar arrangement evolved is anyone's guess. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that the female paper nautilus still retains a molluscan shell, while the male has lost this armor and looks more like an aspiring octopus. Without a shelly defense, the male may not want to get too close ...
12. The Female Star [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon V:3 (Dec 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents The Female Star Ev Cochrane I am frequently asked why anyone should care about ancient myth? The answer, quite simply, is that for many millennia myth served as the primary means of recording and communicating ancient man's most fundamental beliefs regarding the nature of the cosmos, history, and the origin of the sacred. In this sense, ancient myth constitutes an important chapter in the intellectual history of our species and is thus a ripe field of study for ... the following suggestion: "A female association is in fact general, except in India; this is natural enough, since to the unaided eye Venus is the loveliest of the planets." [29 But why should a beautiful planet be viewed as female rather than male? Others have sought an answer in the peculiarities inherent in the planet's periods of visibility: "Another reason to worship Venus and find significance in her movements is that there are numerous connections between the timing of aspects of her motions and timescales of natural interest to ...
13. Society News [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... Africa about 40-50,000 years ago, at the transition between the Middle and Upper Palaeolithic periods, when the introduction of a whole new range of tools coincided with an extraordinary use of red ochre and a creative explosion in art with representational imagery of animals and the female figure. Contra Freud, there was no phallic imagery at this time. The Upper Palaeolithic Revolution was directly connected with the hunting of the large ice-age mammals, such as reindeer and mammoth and came about by a social behavioural change in which males went out on ... of ovulation is hidden and not accompanied by gross physical or behavioural changes. The only signal the human female gives out is at the opposite end of the cycle with an exaggerated show of blood. Knight's scenario is that women and their young, protected by their young male offspring, remained at a home base, literally keeping the home fire burning. With a synchronised menstrual cycle they would effectively say 'no' to the men by a show of blood around the time of the dark Moon, driving them away from the home base ...
14. Giant Animals in Hebrew Lore [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... The modem paleontologists wondered at the largest land animal ? s lack of weapons for attack or defense, which would have made it easy prey for every attacker, and supposed that the animal used its tail as its weapon. Equally interesting is the description of the gigantic female Reem when heavy with young. ? Leviathan, Ziz, and Behemot are not the only monsters; there are many others, and marvellous ones, like reem, a giant animal, of which only one couple, male and female, is in existence. ... ..

... ," Washington Times, December 11, 1994. Cr. S. Parker. COUDI item. COUDI= Collectors of Unusual DataInternational.) Comment. Obviously, dolphins are not always as friendly as Flipper. In fact, a recent TV documentary related how a female snorkeler was seized (gently) by a male false killer whale (a type of dolphin) and dragged down 100 feet before being released unhurt though nearly drowned.

In fact, a recent incident at a Sao Paulo, Brazil, beach reveals an antagonism toward human males. A wild, resident male dolphin, noted for his friendliness toward women swimmers, attacked two human males, who were evidently considered to be romantic competitors. One of the men died from internal hemorrhaging after being butted by ...

... , the other is less definite. Another, unfinished relief shows what appear to be two naked kings, one caressing the other. However, the visual layout of the scene and especially the cartouches (3 rather than 4) would suggest one of the two is female but with regal status and pharaonic insignia. In short, the images could be used to support either viewpoint. What about the role of Kiya? Entirely unknown until the 1950s, her monuments and other items had been defaced and rededicated to Meretaten. It had ...

Unlike other speakers, Aidan took the view that he was a genuine male heir ruling in his own right for a short time.

... come into evidence at a later time, and therefore the Proselenians witnessed the coming of the Moon as an emergence from behind a cloudy barrier, after it had been present in the nearby sky for some time. Around the world, the moon was more often attributed female gender for several reasons that can be touched upon only briefly here. A matriarchal system may have come into being at times and the Moon was deemed female. Or the rough coincidence of the normal menstrual period of women and the cycle of lunar phases- 28 ... calendar ages- could have produced numerous speculations, "confirmations," institutional and ritual tags for the measure of time and religious behaviors. The Moon would thus become female because of its behavior according to the menstrual cycle? Yet, we think, could not a male Moon have commanded and ordered the menstrual cycle, according to the mythmaking mind? Only Venus, of the planets, is often female. The others and the Sun are regularly male. A number of qualities are associated with the Moon and these are also associated ...

Part of "his" body's cells are male (one X and one Y chromosome), part female (two X chromosomes). This hermaphrodite-like condition apparently developed because "he" was conceived via in vitro (IVF) fertilization. Probably both a male embryo and a female embryo were transferred to "his" mother's uterus, where they fused and formed a ...

... identified by Velikovsky with the planet Venus, was also a war deity. Clearly the Armenians of Orontid times had come to see the planet Venus/Vahagn as a male figure and so gratuitously identified his war-like qualities with those of Mars, a male rather than a female god of war. Further support for the idea that Vahagn represented the planet Venus may be drawn from the fact that Vahram, the Avestan Verethraghna (and, thus, Vahagn), is capable of assuming the shape of a bull, which in ancient times ... , however, need not imply that he should be identified with Mars, for Athene, a goddess identified by Velikovsky with the planet Venus, was also a war deity.
