... the raging flood of brine, and burn the deep sea [that is, the waters of the girdle-tide will disappear, flow off] and Babylon and the Italian land' (that is, east and west, as far as it is known to man, the whole Earth). Even among so primitive a people as the Australian aborigines we find reports telling with great clarity of the observation of the disintegration of the Tertiary satellite. The tribe of the Arunta, for instance, hold the belief that the first dwellers on the Earth were titans whom they call Alcheringa, Dream Time People', or Nooralie, Very Old Ones'. These supernatural beings modified the face ...
202. The Myth of the Tower [Books]
... over mankind [which they refer to as a famine', that is, the worst thing they can now imagine. This made people lose their senses and they wandered away in all directions, jabbering strange words. So the different languages came into being. ' Similar myths are found in all parts of the Earth, among the Australian aborigines who tell that men began to speak different tongues when an old woman' died who had scattered fire among the Maidu Indians who report that the confusion of speech happened in the night among the (Quiche of Guatemala, who say that the diversity of languages came about after their migration to, and settlement in, the mythical land of ...
203. Night of the Gods: The Pillar-Axis as Tower [Books]
... seems to exhibit to us the same original idea descending through two different channels, and so evolving side by side (whether due to migration or not) very different forms of the same central pillar-symbol, which are both still produced to this day. It was in this country too that the Mahomedan rebels were put down and massacred. The aboriginal (? ) licit Miao tribe of this part of S. W. China "stick-in a bamboo-pole at the graves, with silk threads of the five colours."3 The staged towers (zikkurat) of Chaldea and Assyria seem to have given the model for the atesh-gahs or fire-towers of the Persians.

... winged, but the wings' look distinctly like flames. The horse also appears to have ears', which look more like horns. There seems to be a narrow line between mythical horses and dragons. Take Heed of Your Ancestral Tales (Scientific American, March 2005, p. 10) During last year's tsunami, a group of aboriginals on the Andaman Islands all survived by running to high ground as soon as they felt the initial earthquake. Their legends say that when the earth shakes the sea will rise up onto the land. Summit Power(BBC History Magazine) The Incas kept control of their people through sacred authority, by reading edicts from the top of their ...
205. The Demands of the Saturnian Configuration Theory [Journals] [Aeon]
... would not have realized that it contained water. When the polar column was severed, however, the water contained within it would have been released. And from this, ancient man should have deduced that the column did contain a reservoir of water. Does the mytho-historical record meet this demand? We have already seen that, among the Australian Aborigines, the great python is the most impressive representative of the polar column. It is therefore significant that this python is not only believed to tower up to the level of the clouds, but that he also "brings about rain and flood."  The Efe pygmies of the Ituri forest tell of a deluge of water ...
206. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Five [Books]
... the same data by means of an essentially local disaster, followed by the global spread of stories about it. b) Further to (ii), and writing on the theme of "the similarity of motifs in the folklore of various peoples on the five continents", V writes, on WIC p.291 of how "the aborigines of America imagined a witch as a woman riding on a broom across the sky, exactly as the European peoples imagined her." In fact, he actually quotes Spence on this. Now V explains this coincidence by a globally witnessed cometary simulacram (WIC p.293). But this will not do, since there is more ...

... said that it can bind camphor and musk for several tens of years without evaporating. Further, it is said that, when it is burned, a blue smoke floats through the air. .. .. .. .. Last spring the saliva spit out by a herd of dragons appeared floating (on the sea). The aborigines gathered, obtained and sold it, each time for two thousand copper coins." The Yiu hwan ki wen 197 instructs its that the most precious of all perfumes is dragon's spittle, and that the inhabitants of Tashili land used to watch the vapours arising for half a year or even two or three years from the same spot of ...

... , "I have made the dress which Ptah has woven out of clay." "Ptah was the re-clother of the deceased in flesh, i. e., the red clay which represented flesh, and the clay dress of Ptah was initiated by this primitive way of embalming bones, a rite performed among the Maonis, the Australian aborigines, Mound Builders of Britain and the North American Indians. The Constellation of Orion was known as the Mummy Constellation, which arose six thousand years ago. It represented the re-arisen Horus, and was called the Star of the East. It was the Mammit, type of Karast, image of the "Eternal when he transformed in the ...
... the Children of the Sun', not the subjects of the Satellite. They believed in what would remain, the Sun, and not in what they probably knew would eventually pass, the Satellite. Hence also the ancient apellation of the Calendar Gate as Puerta del Sol, Gate of the Sun, probably translated by the Spaniards from some aboriginal name, appears to be justified and apposite. One of the most striking features of the Calendar is the precision of the data presented, so much so, in fact, that our calculations have had to be made to four and five places of decimals to keep the residual errors as low as possible. Of how the Tiahuanacans calculated ...
