GLOSSARY Q-CD vol. 13, A Fire Not Blown, Ch. 14: The Goddess Gaia 85 CHAPTER FOURTEEN THE GODDESS GAIA The priest-electricians were aware that the deity was to be found not only in the sky as lightning, but also in the earth. In Greek, chthon is the earth, Gaia is the goddess in the earth. The snake was seen in the sky as a dragon, and was associated with radiation and its effects, but it was also a creature living in holes in the ground, and snake tubes were incorporated in Cretan houses where the snake was like the Roman genius ...

... one with electrical implications; others possess the same. The Island of Naxos in the Cyclades was originally called Dia (possibly a reference to the dioi or divine Pelasgians who preceded the early Karians and Hellenes), then refounded (I might suggest a catastrophe as the occasion) by a King Naxos or as well Nakaso, close to the Greek for a big shot, hero or warrior king, anax, so to the tribe of giants of the Old Testament, Anakim. Rulership- kings and high elite- is loaded with electrical trappings and obsessive practices. The ruler is expected to appease the gods by tending to fire and keep the home and altar fires burning. Labyrinths ...
3. Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning [Books]
... The various Arabic titles that we see applied to a single star or group, and the duplicate titles for some that are widely separated in the sky, apparently came from the various tribes, each of which had to a certain extent a nomenclature of its own. The rest of our star-names, with but few exceptions, are directly from Greek or Latin originals, - - many of these, as is the case with the Arabian, although now regarded as personal, being at first only adjectival or merely descriptive of the star's position in the constellation figure; while some are the result of misunderstanding, or of errors in translation and oft repeated transcription. But these are now ...
4. The Blind Pharaoh [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... the name of the pharaoh's god Aton, he would naturally remember it better than the syllables prefixed and pronounced with detestation. So Anysis appears to be simply a rendering in Greek of the accurst name Aton (reversed as "Anyt"). This would seem to favor the spelling preferred by many scholars, Aten. Velikovsky calls attention to ... Sabakon" becomes manifest when we see how he identified the latter with the city Bubastis, chosen to be the capital of the Libyan king Shoshenk. The error of the Greekis no worse than the monstrous distortions of Egyptian history made by the priest of Sebenytus, Manetho, to tickle his Greekspeaking countrymen. The consequences of dogged devotion to Manetho ...

7. The Sibylline Oracles [Books]
... where the counsel of God was thought to be revealed. Oracles such as that of Claros enjoyed an enormous vogue as late as the second century a.d .- never, indeed, had their popularity been greater : and it waned only with the decay of the cults which nurtured it. In the main, it is clear the Greeks believed firmly that the inspiration of their oracles and seers was genuine. It is true that Aristophanes laughed at them and parodied their utterances, and that Lucian in his day found abundant material for satire in the charlatans who made large profit out of the superstitions of a nerve-ridden age, while Aristotle1treated inspiration as a form of melancholy ; yet ...

10. Ramesses II And Greek Archaic Sculpture [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS C & C Review 2003 (Nov 2003) Conference Proceedings Ages Still in Chaos' Home | Issue Contents Ramesses II And Greek Archaic Sculpture Lewis M. Greenberg Introduction The current, generally accepted dates for the reign of Ramesses II are 1279-1213 BC [1 ]. Velikovsky, in Ramses II and His Time, presented an extensive case for repositioning Ramesses II primarily in the late 7th and early 6th centuries BC with a solitary regnal period of some 30 years (c . 610-580 BC) [2 ]. Any attestation of additional regnal years was postulated to reflect a co-regency with Seti the Great and Merneptah [3 ]. Thus, Ramesses II might have ...
