... a source of fruit and crops, and was connected with the mystery religion of Eleusis. In the Homeric Hymn to Demeter, 275 ff., Demeter appears to Metaneira to instruct her about her cult at Eleusis. Radiance like lightning fills the house. Earlier I mentioned two kinds of electrical activity, that of the atmosphere, lightning, auroras, etc., and that of the earth, earthquake phenomena such as earthquake light and piezoelectric effects. It is possible to see in the succession of deities at Delphi the development of Greek thought about electricity. The opening of the Eumenides of Aeschylus is a good starting point. Gaia, earth, is the first occupant of the ...

... the Norse mythology we have four rivers on fire, side by side. Again, two of these are-of red fire, and tw_o of boiling, steaming waters. ' Here there may be discerned a similarity to the River-myths, which we shall encounter later on, and a suggestion of the Northern geysers, and even of the Aurora Borealis. The likeness of these Norse conceptions to the four miraculous clouds of the ShBda Shonin legend must not be overlooked ; and there is in the same legend a comparison of tl-.e r Ralurclres hisl. srrr Its Cons Jrospilalihzs du jrtret foulijcr, par Df.

... recurring conflagration, the fearful thunder of which the Earth-watching man' hears from afar. This hero decides to ride through the fire, one side of which glows in the heights of the sky, the other burning at both corners of the sky'. With the help of his magic horse he succeeds in his attempt. Munkacsi believes the Aurora Borealis to have been the original source of these ideas. This he assumes is meant by the sea of fire' through which the hero rides for seven days. Obviously, this great phenomenon of North Siberia has played a great part in awakening the imagination of the people, the white streaks appearing among the Northern Lights being sometimes called ...

... (the shifts concerned must be fairly abrupt and they must be in a positive direction, as defined in Appendix B). Whilst I have no explanation to offer for the association of Ammisaduqa's name with the tablets, I imagine that the year of the heavenly throne' could refer to something spectacular in the skies, such as an extended Aurora which could even have blotted out normal observations of the heavenly bodies. These last proposals are essentially speculative, but they need to be kept in mind whilst acceptable explanations of all the detail are still being sought. Precessional dating A fall-out from the present study which is of general interest is recognition of the position of the vernal equinox at ...

... against the backdrop of the giant sun-god would also have contributed to his being viewed as a child, of course. The paradox, aptly illustrated in the scholars' confusion over Thor, is that the same heroic figure appears at one time as a small child and elsewhere as a giant. 135. The fiery apparitions commonly associated with the aurora borealis would, presumably, be as nothing compared to the electrical effects associated with the polar configuration, especially during the period marked by the near approach of the planet Mars to the Northern skies. 136.
