51. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Two [Books]
... times already in this book, the reader will find two excellent photographs of waterspouts (Plates 13 & 14). It is not difficult to imagine these as pictures of pillars holding up the sky. On WIC p.78, V writes: "The earth was submerged in the ocean but was drawn by Tefaafanau, ' relate the aborigines of Paumotu in Polynesia. The new isles were bated by a star. ' In the month of March the Polynesians celebrate a god, Taafanua." V here refers to W.1 .36, 154 & 237. W.1 .36 is in W's section on creation myths, and refers to the creation of land ...

... the Dreamtime by Ainslie Roberts, pp. 56 and 114 Owl rock, 300km NW of Alice Springs, is an unexplained wedge of stone more than 10 metres high and balanced on a very narrow base. Although the surrounding strata are horizontal, those of the rock are vertical. In South Australia huge coal deposits were mythologised about by the aboriginal people long before they were discovered' by Europeans. A giant ancestor had set fire to so many trees that he left behind charcoal and a treeless desert. When mining began it was found that one of the coal basins was indeed burnt out. Fancy that!New Scientist 26.10.91, p. 22 Cosmic string ...
53. Venus Before Exodus [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... not seem especially significant. Nevertheless, the fact remains that relevant inscriptions never make mention of doctors performing the rite." This would seem to indicate that, in Egypt, circumcision had a religious significance and never, seemingly, medical. 59. ANET, p.326 60. Jill Abery has indicated there is a parallel in Australian Aborigine practice to the Jewish circumcision. The Aborigines perform circumcision to appease "the great father snake" - and the snake or serpent is a Venus symbol. Jewish mythology has a story of like kind, about Moses being swallowed by a snake on account of his not being circumcised (Exodus 4:24-26 and Rashi's comments in op. ...
54. Aphrodite Urania [Journals] [Aeon]
... acceptance, primarily because none can account for more than a select handful of the goddess' various functions and attributes, much less explain the myriad of peculiar details attending her myth and cult. In our opinion, it is the goddess' identification with the planet Venus- attested in numerous cultures from the ancient Near East, but also among aboriginal peoples of the New World- which offers the elusive common denominator necessary to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the goddess' mythical attributes. In this series of essays, we intend to show that the majority of the symbolic images and mythological themes associated with the mother goddess- including the various forms of the goddess personified by the Greek figures ...
55. Stairway to Heaven [Journals] [Aeon]
... identified as the Evening Star; i.e ., the planet Venus. As we have documented elsewhere, the planet Venus is frequently described as the daughter (or wife) of the ancient sun-god. From North America we turn to Australia, where an interesting variation upon the chain of arrows theme can be found. That the various aboriginal peoples showed a "remarkable interest in the movement of the planets" has been noted by more than one anthropologist.  Consider, for example, the following myth collected from the Jaralde tribe, an aboriginal people of South Australia who did not know the use of bow and arrows. Once upon a time, they report ...
... out of the various parts of the body of P'an-ku, the Pre-existing Being, millions of years ago. In the cosmogony of the Manichaeans the Spirit of Life; the helper of the Primal Man, captured the evil, rebellious Archontes, or Rulers of the World, flayed them, and formed the firmament out of their skins. The aborigines (Gilbert Islanders) of the island of Nui, or Egg, belonging to the Ellice, or Lagoon, Archipelago in the Pacific Ocean, tell in one of their myths how the great Primeval Sea-Serpent was killed and hewn into bits, out of which the neighbouring islands were made. A Samoan myth points in the same direction. ...
57. Earth without a Moon [Journals] [Pensee]
... Winter 1973) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered III" Home | Issue Contents Earth without a Moon Immanuel Velikovsky Copyright 1973 by Immanuel Velikovsky Democritus and Anaxagoras taught that there was a time when the Earth was without the Moon. Aristotle wrote that Arcadia in Greece, before being inhabited by the Hellenes, had a population of Pelasgians, and that these aborigines occupied the land already before there was a moon in the sky above the earth; for this reason they were called Proselenes (1 ). Appolonius Rhodius mentioned the time "when not all the orbs were yet in the heavens, before the Danai and Deukalion races came into existence, and only the Arcadians lived, of whom it ...
58. Myth, Mandala, and the Collective Unconscious [Journals] [Kronos]
... several archetypal forms which frequently appear in dreams and fantasies of modern individuals, some of whom, such as young children, seem unlikely to have acquired the ideas or images through personal experience. Jung concluded that the unconscious was in part collective; that instinctive trends toward certain mental patterns had developed through adaptive evolution and continue to function as "aboriginal, innate, and inherited shapes of the human mind."(4 ) Freud, founder of psychoanalysis, maintained that unconscious phenomena traced primarily to a complex of sex instincts whose basic quality and pattern of development is inherent in the biological nature of the individual. Freud chose the Oedipus drama to characterize the complex he considered to be ...
59. Electric Universe [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2001:2 (Sep 2001) Home | Issue Contents Electric Universe WAL THORNHILL continued his presentation, this one a little more speculative than the previous ones. Wal began by mentioning Aboriginal x-ray art [eg. see www.geocities.com/Paris/Jardin/2744/painting.html] although I don't recall the context, and then went on to say that the current solar system dust model appears to be iffy. There is no such thing as a "failed star"- brown dwarfs are the most abundant in the galaxy; they have no photosphere, planets can orbit within their "atmosphere", and such a planet ...
