381. Carl Sagan: A Life by Keay Davidson [Journals] [Aeon]
... ." [16] Nevertheless, such thoughts surfaced throughout the rest of his career, perhaps beginning with his first serious effort, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Dragons of Eden, a compendium of ideas about dreams, evolution, and myths, a book in which he comes perilously close to espousing Velikovsky's collective amnesia by speculating that ancestral memory may be biologically reposited in the genetic code of our DNA; [17] and, of course, culminating with his 1985 novel Contact, that was posthumously released as a film in 1997. But, perhaps his best literary effort, co-authored with Ann Druyan, is Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors (1992), in which they explored the apocalyptic tendencies ...

... With Alfred de Grazia, he also co-authored Solaria Binaria: A History of the Solar System, and, in 1992, he set up, also with de Grazia, the still incomplete Encyclopedia of Quantavolution and Catastrophes, pages from which appear serially on the Grazian-Archive Web Site. Dr. Milton is survived by his wife Anna Marutkyn, a biologist, by his son Davin Milton from a previous marriage, and by a brother and sister. A. d.G . ...

... breakdown of bicamerality. Bainbridge's solution to Stove's objection was confirmed by the proceedings of the McMaster-Bauer Symposium of 1983 which concentrated on the subject of consciousness and debated Jaynes' work. It was demonstrated that that the change from bicamerality to consciousness was not a change of hardware' which would, indeed, have required some extraordinary event to alter the biological nature of man's brain, but a change of software' - a change in the way the brain is programmed, as it were, mainly be the advent of writing. The significance of the catastrophic scenarios envisaged by Velikovsky et alia is likely to be much greater than Jaynes had envisaged (a private communication to Duane Vorhees, SIS ...

... upon his theory of Cultural Amnesia. According to his theory, mankind forgot about unpleasant catastrophic events on the conscious level, but remembers on the unconscious level. Furthermore it would appear that the unconscious memory is transmitted genetically from one generation to the next, a concept already postulated by Freud and Jung but in disagreement with much of the current biological thinking. Nevertheless, there are, as will be shown in the papers following Velikovsky's, substantial reasons for thinking that memory is indeed transmitted, if not racially, then in some other way. If the cultural amnesia theory is correct, then it is possible to suggest that every generation lives in a state of trauma induced by the ...

... case with humankind. It was very unpleasant, therefore, to find out that the Earth, the whole Earth under our feet, moves. (How spontaneously and instinctively correct when the entire population of a city runs outside in panic at the first rumblings of an earthquake.) Later it was also very unpleasant to be told by the biologists that animal species are not immutable, that there is change and evolution in the animal kingdom, and that these natural mechanisms had produced humankind itself. Still more recently, it was markedly unpleasant to learn from psychoanalysis that man's motives are not always those that he thinks; that in his instincts he is much more primitive and animal than ...

... role seems to be that of a literary cheer-leader. They expect - and sometimes demand - that encomia be balanced by criticisms. So I shall do my ceremonial tongue-clucking over a few minor but undeniable flaws that I noticed in this book: On page 65, the author remarks on the frequency of skin cancer among the Celtic races'. Biologically, of course, there isn't even one Celtic race, much less a plurality of them. And, inasmuch as Celts are a linguistic rather than a genetic group, it is hard to see what would make speakers of Gaelic or Breton more susceptible than speakers of English or French to malignant melanoma. On p. 137, the ...

... the obvious: the symbols cited above are the acknowledged, most frequently-employed hieroglyphs for the comet in the ancient world, and the only astronomical phenomenon answering to these glyphs is the comet. Additionally, as a matter of simple logic, the attachment of these distinct comet glyphs to Venus must be considered alongside the convergence of these glyphs on a biologically impossible monster - the bearded serpent, long-haired serpent, flaming serpent, fire-breathing serpent, and feathered serpent. In none of these instances could phenomena observed today account for the incongruous motifs, which occur again and again throughout the ancient world. But let the comet glyphs mean what they meant in the ancient languages themselves, and the incongruity ...

... local events where changes are measured in microseconds. Consequence, which is the last hope of causality, is often strained in the straddling of time. When the Solar System comes to be viewed in the light of newly discovered universal transactions, the idea necessarily arises that it has developed under time-collapsing conditions. Time measures - radiometric, geological and biological - that have been painstakingly manufactured to give billions of years of longevity to the system - must submit to a review of their credibility. The need to generate a new chronometry is enhanced by current reassessments of legends and knowledge that ancient and prehistoric human beings possessed. The authors would not have ventured upon this reconstruction of the recent history ...

... exploration may include: The theory that planetary catastrophes have had a far greater impact on the evolution of the solar system, the history of our earth and the evolution of human consciousness than science has acknowledged. The idea that modern science has failed to understand the role of electricity in organizing the physical world - from the molecular, to the biological, to the intergalactic. The concept that science took a wrong turn several centuries ago, when it said that planets have moved on their present courses for billions of years. This idea was possible because the theorists assumed that only gravity and inertia controlled the behavior of planets and moons. The view that a few thousand years ago the ...
