451. Book Shelf [Journals] [Aeon]
... either literally "son of Ares," or simply a person filled with the lust and having the skill of Ares as god of war. There is no change in the term when applied to the Amazon; indeed, it later develops into a mere adjective to describe their nation, yet Blok insists it now means that Penthesileia was the biological child of Ares, since the Amazons needed a family designation like other heroes. I would, however, suggest that Penthesileia is not a hero in the Greek sense, and that her designation as Thracian suffices for any need of an origin. My view is bolstered by the fact that Blok herself insists that other terms should be applied ...

... have been seen. The catastrophist thinks, "This explosion has been long on my mind. If it had maintained its path for minutes longer before striking St. Petersburg (now Leningrad), the capital of the Russian Czars would have disappeared in heat and dust. The heat was fierce, in thousands of degrees; no wonder odd biological phenomena have occurred. But why the absence of a crater? Was the meteoroid actually an explosive gas cloud, and was it a gas cloud that blasted Sennacherib's great army besieging Jerusalem in 687 B.C .? " In 1975 Soviet astronomers detect X-rays emanating from planet Saturn. X-rays signify a very recent explosion, a nova event ...

453. Pleiongaea: A Myth for all Seasons [Journals] [Aeon]
... events in a wide variety of localities complicate the history of the Earth.) It is thought that during the mid-Mesozoic era, a mere 150 million years ago, the world's land mass was agglomerated into one supercontinent, Pangaea, which then split into two smaller masses that have been named Gondwanaland and Laurasia. Despite this breakup, geologic and biologic processes continued to promote discontinuities and diversities. It was about 1912 that meteorologist Alfred Wegener first advanced the idea of drifting continents to explain the similarities in flora and fauna in the Euro-African continents and the Americas. His contemporary, geologist Frank B. Taylor, independently arrived at the same idea. But it wasn't until the last quarter-century that ...

... of it, as their streaming "manes". (Figure 7) The reader will recall the celestial beard or bearded star in our short list of comet symbols, as a logical extension of the "long-haired star". (Thus the Greek pogonias, the beard-star, means "comet".) While a bearded serpent is a biological absurdity, the anomalous beard is immediately explained if the Venusian serpent is a long-haired star or comet. If the celestial beard did not mirror a comet-like form in the sky, then the bearded serpent is one more anomaly left unanswered, despite a consistent pattern that seems to cry out for recognition. Figure 7: Bearded Dragon To keep ...

456. Thoth Vol V, No 12: November 30, 2001 [Journals] [Thoth]
... concepts and mathematical symbols representing them. However, the exactness of mathematics hides this ambiguity, and provides a false sense of definiteness. The rigidity of math, its seductive notation, and its connotations of intellectual privilege has drawn many disciplines inappropriately to the alter of mathematics. "The widespread misappropriation of the language of mathematics in the social and biological sciences has to be one of the greatest tragedies of our time. Used injudiciously, mathematical modeling can serve to obfuscate rather than clarify, or at best add nothing at all to the situation other than the illusion of control. Many of the fundamental processes involved may not be amenable to mathematical formulation; and assumptions can creep in unawares ...

... . When the future life of Horus was being gestated, he was shut up in the Meshkin, or Holy Shrine, place of annihilation or transformation, and was symbolized by the Red Mouse. "The Mouse typified the mystery of shutting up the red source of life, the flesh-maker, which was looked upon as the first factor in biology."[5 ] A superstition existed among Mexican women to the effect that when the Moon was in eclipse there was danger that a woman's coming child might be turned into a Mouse. Astrologically the Moon in eclipse is fatal to gestation. In Egypt the Hawk was reverenced as the personification of Light, and the Mouse, because ...

... also have caused proto-Saturn's stellar discharge to change violently at some stages. There are too many unknowns at present to pin down the duration of the polar configuration to 50 years, 100 years, or 200 years. The capture and survivability of the break up of that system is an opinion based, it seems, on a standard gravitational and biological model and, as such, is unhelpful. For example, there would have been an exchange of electrical energy for orbital energy, in cometary fashion, which would have resulted in the heating of Earth. And it seems clear that biological systems are capable of beginning to adapt in a single generation in response to severe environmental challenges. ...

... Wiseman says, "It is confusion confounded" [39]! Wellhausen in fact acknowledged that the result of all this dissecting was "an agglomeration of fragments" [40]. Despite this, his History of Israel (1878) "gave him a place in Biblical studies comparable, it was said, to that of Darwin in biology" [41]. Wellhausen resigned from Greifswald University in 1882. Orthodox Lutherans there were alarmed at the doubts he cast on the inspiration of Scripture. Numerous contradictory explanations of the variations in the use of the Divine name have been given both by critics and by defenders, to account for the fact that in Exodus 6:3 ...

... the formation of a people's character, I had mostly in mind an inherited tradition of this kind and not one transmitted by communication. Or at least I made no distinction between the two and was not clearly aware of my audacity in neglecting to do so. My position, no doubt, is made more difficult by the present attitude of biological science, which refuses to hear of the inheritance of acquired characters by succeeding generations. I must, however, in all modesty confess that, nevertheless I cannot do without this factor in biological evolution." See also on page 100, a little farther down: "If we assume the survival of these memory-traces in the archaic heritage ...
