72. Naptha, Part 1 Venus Ch.2 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... away, in the other hemisphere, in Siberia, the Voguls carried down through the centuries and millennia this memory: "God sent a sea of fire upon the earth. . . . The cause of the fire they call the fire-water. ' "( 6 ) Half a meridian to the south, in the East Indies, the aboriginal tribes relate that in the remote past Sengle-Das or "water of fire" rained from the sky; with very few exceptions, all men died.(7 ) The eighth plague as described in the Book of Exodus was "barad [meteorites] and fire mingled with the barad, very grievous, such as there was none like ...
73. Tiahuanacu In The Andes. Ch.6 Mountains And Rifts (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... the Cordilleras that separates the Altiplano from the valley to the east was torn apart and gigantic blocks were thrown into the chasm. Lyell, combating the idea of a universal flood, offered the theory that the bursting of the Sierra barrier opened the way for a large lake on the Altiplano, which cascaded down into the valley and caused the aborigines to create the myth of a universal flood.10 Not so long ago an explanation of the mystery of Lake Titicaca and of the fortress Tiahuanacu on its shore was put forward in the light of Höerbiger's theory: A moon circled very close to the earth, pulling the waters of the oceans toward the equator; by its gravitational pull ...
74. Aeon Volume VI, Number 4: Contents [Journals] [Aeon]
... . Hissink was born in Bandung, Indonesia, and practices as a diamond field geologist working mainly in Western Australia and, occasionally, Southern Africa. He lives in a beach suburb north of Sydney and spends lengthy periods in the "bush" during the exploration field season, usually in the winter in the southern hemisphere. Frequent contacts with Aborigines during these trips led to an acquaintance with their mythology which frequently conflicts with conventional explanations concerning geological phenomena. It is those inconsistencies that led to his renewed interest in catastrophic geology, the electric nature of the Universe, and the relevance of ancient myths to modern science. Marinus Anthony van der Sluijs studied comparative and historical linguistics, as ...
75. Our Universe: Unlocking its Mysteries [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... when there is no star or planet closer to earth than our moon to form such a configuration? And most importantly, why do so many disparate and far flung ancient cultures, peoples who could never have been in contact with one another, such as the Sumerians, Egyptians, Chinese, Native American Indians, Mayans, Babylonians, Australian Aboriginals, and many others, all tell the same story and draw similar pictures. Planets in the Northern sky: If these ancient writings were based on valid observations rather than fantasy, what do they tell us? Cochrane, Cardona, and Talbott theorize that Earth formerly moved in an assembly of planets having no resemblance to our current solar ...
76. Prelunar Culture (The Atlantis Myth) [Books]
... bloom, without a long period of slow development preceding it. Everything that has been found at Cnossus shows a ripeness, a magnificent sweep of creative fancy, a sovereign mastery of form and technique, which, together with the lacking `roots', gives one the distinct impression that all this is not the result of construction by `aborigines', ancient settlers on that spot, but of reconstruction by refugees'. (A colonial origin of Minoan Crete has never been seriously considered) The undiscovered original settlements of the Minoans, where they rose from primitivism, were evidently situated at the submerged `foot' of the island of Crete, perhaps only a relatively small distance ...
77. Aster and Disaster: The Golden Age - I [Journals] [Kronos]
... , paradise seems to lie outside spatio-temporal coordinates altogether. It can then be equated with a community (such as Hesiod's "golden race"),(12) a process (such as the Taoist "way", whereby, without action, all is mysteriously enacted),(13) a state of consciousness (such as the aboriginal Australian "dreaming"),(14) a spiritual condition (beatitude), or a general attitude (blessed foolishness, as in the Roman Feast of Fools(15) or the Medieval realm of Cockaigne(16) ), AUREALISM Aurealism, derived from the obsolescent English adjective aureal, "golden",(17) ...
78. Mysterious Ancient America, by Paul Devereux (Book review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... were characteristic of Europeans, Polynesians, or the Ainu of Japan – and the latter is most favoured. The Jomon culture flourished in Japan, Korea, and Taiwan, at the time of the skeletal remains – and the study of ancient skulls from both North and South America have prompted ideas of origins in southern Asia and even from Australian Aborigines. The picture that has emerged, Devereux says, is one of multiple entries into the Americas from a variety of Old World regions – but modern Native Americans do not necessarily preserve this lineage in their DNA. This might suggest, he continues, that the earlier inhabitants were eliminated by the later Siberian migrations or that they were largely ...
79. The Collapsed Sky, Part 1 Venus Ch.3 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... alive. The tribes of Kanga and Loanga also have a tradition of the collapse of the sky which annihilated the human race. The Wanyoro in Unyoro likewise relate that the sky fell on the earth and killed everybody: the god Kagra threw the firmament upon the earth to destroy mankind.(10) The tradition of the Cashinaua, the aborigines of western Brazil, is narrated as follows: "The lightnings flashed and the thunders roared terribly and all were afraid. Then the heaven burst and the fragments fell down and killed everything and everybody. Heaven and earth changed places. Nothing that had life was left upon the earth."(11) In this tradition are included ...
80. Editorial [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... the subjects discussed by the CCNet. Catastrophism is not only mainstream, but has hit the silver screen (no pun intended) with the release of "Deep Impact". Electricity in Astronomy Plasma and electricity continue to feature heavily in some of the astronomy discussions in Thoth and the Kronia List, and might even appear in some of the aboriginal artwork showcased on the back cover of this issue. But it's not all astrophysics, inside you'll also find reports on the Joshua Impact Event (page 9), whether the First Dynasty was pre-Flood or post-Flood (page 16), Julian Jaynes author of Origins of Consciousness (page 20), and forthcoming conferences on the Inspiration of ...
