181. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Three [Books]
... above), and Wainwright argues that it may originally have been representative of the path of a falling meteorite or the streak of a lightning bolt. Two things may have contributed to this apparently quizzical idea. Firstly, the streak of a meteor across the sky is not unlike a length of luminous rope, and indeed Wainwright cites an Australian Aboriginal legend in which the dead climb up to heaven by a rope, and having reached it, cast the rope down in the form of a shooting star. Secondly, when lightning strikes a man dead it is not difficult to imagine that heaven has reached down and snatched away his soul, the path of the lightning marking the path ...
182. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Other elaborate carvings found on a granite rock being used in a modern sea wall in Norfolk may have been from Scandinavia, whence rock for the sea wall was imported. The body of a Neolithic man who lived around 10,000 years ago in China was found buried with a small jade object. A new and pristine cache of ancient Aboriginal rock dating from 4,000 years ago until the arrival of Europeans, has been found near Sydney, Australia. In India prehistoric rock shelters and cave paintings date back 6,000 years to the Mesolithic period. The artists used inorganic pigments to produce reds, greens and whites. Ancient Technology (BBC2, Meet The Ancestors' ...
183. Holy Dreamtime [Books] [de Grazia books]
... in illo tempore. It is in Holy Dream-time, a state of being in the past and in the present, where a great event is happening and still away from it in the here and now, in the presence of those who were involved in the action. One cannot watch the Phaeacians as R. M. Berndt did the aboriginal Australian Wonguri in a similar format and mood , or as other anthropologists have observed primitive tribal performances; one must imagine them with the aid of all the evidence that can be brought to bear upon the scene. If one is successful, it will be owing to another scholar, in this case Giovanni Patroni, whose ...

... peak. Strange light phenomena, even in the form of rainbows gleaming over the peak at night, have been recorded in fairly recently years. The author claims to have discovered similar magnetic anomalies in America, at holy sites of native Americans. Radioactivity is another feature common to holy places. Uranium deposits have been found at American and Australian Aborigine sites. It is claimed that even in France the distribution of megaliths corresponds very well with known uranium deposits. This would be especially pertinent where those same megalithic sites were found to be also located near or on fault lines. Even small tremors may have generated a radioactive response, or some kind of phenomenon associated with the gods. ...
185. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... where a male and female, dated at 40,000 years, were previously found at Lake Mungo. Mungo Lady' is the earliest known cremation and Mungo Man' is the earliest known ritual burial using ochre. One of the two new burials had the body in a sitting position on top of an extinguished fire. In Tasmania, aboriginal rock art has been discovered in a cave. The red ochre handprints date to 11,000 years ago and were probably for ceremonial purposes. Asia (Daily Yomiuri Online, 24.11.03; People's Daily, 22.12.03 and 26.2 .04; The News International Pakistan, 31.12. ...
186. The Gaseous Complex [Books] [de Grazia books]
... change of climate. But what they seek out is a uniformitarian or gradual change of prevailing winds, rainfall, and temperature. Centuries, if not millennia, are invoked to pursue the death agonies of a culture. The quantavolutionist tackles the same problem with a markedly different concept, catastrophic climatic change. With the images in mind of an aboriginal greenhouse world afforded by many sources, he sees in every desert a likely disaster, every tall plateau another one, under frozen arctic shores still another. For the quantavolutionist, too, the mechanisms of explanation are available, they are high-energy forces as provoked possibly by changes in the Earth's motion, a change of its orbital path around ...
187. Interviewing Immanuel Velikovsky: An Introduction [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... be a necessary, thorough answer. WOLFE: If you look at this thing in terms of the background, in terms of the last 500 years, it's not that easy to do. We casually toss around figures like that but you have to remember that every culture has its own source of truth. If you go up to an aborigine in Australia and ask, "Where do you get your truth from?," he will say, "We get it from our witch doctor and everything he says is right and we don't believe in anything else." And every culture, at every time in human history, had its own areas from which it accepted the ...

... of the atmosphere. Does it combine with O to drop into the ocean as H2O? He had made some rough calculations. It is enough to account for all the oceans at 2 x 10 25 grams, we discovered, if E = 4.6 b.y . old Cf this with canopy theory. This held rings derived aboriginally, therefore there is no need for the continuous flow. But if hydrogen and oxygen met in a different gravitational situation- when Earth was in Uranus-Gigans [later designated by Deg as Super-Uranus] complex and orbit- they could compose the rings. Then, relieved from Uranus-Gigans, the rings fell and the stored H2O deposits with them. ...
189. Solaria Binaria [Books] [de Grazia books]
... bloodiest and most terrible stories deal with planetary gods when the planets are misbehaving, acting even more erratically than usual. Myth and legend are almost always anchored in earlier world ages, if not in the dawn of mankind . The contents are elaborated, obscured, even deliberately edited, but their forms and force come from the aboriginal events that they sought to report. The Odyssey of Homer, for example, is sung as a story of heroic travels after the Trojan Wars on an East-West Mediterranean axis. I would place its immediate events at around 695 to 675 B.C ., its framework in the two centuries preceding. A second underlying framework, however ...

... and Silenus, in which the latter speaks of the existence of a great continent in the outer sea. Its inhabitants, the Meropes, were builders of big cities. Writing of the Gauls, Timagenes of Alexandria, a ksser Roman historian, says that they had traditions that their country was originally inhabited by three quite different races: the aborigines (possibly Mongoloid), the immigrants from a distant island called Atlantis, and the (Aryan) Gauls. Diodorus Siculus tells us that the Phoenicians in their voyages came to a big island beyond the Pillars of Hercules which was full of choice things of every kind. In the Oera Linda Book, an Old Frisian document of rare ...
