491. Velikovsky and Racial Memory [Journals] [Aeon]
... , which Velikovsky corrected, lay in the fact that Freud did not know the true traumatic nature of the historical past, namely the outburst of wantonness in nature itself, and so he insisted that each individual relives the catastrophes of the past, which he believed to be the murder of the father, the Oedipus complex. He opposed the biological view of his day, and of today, too, and insisted that this imprint was transported through the genes of one generation to the next. (10) In Velikovsky's view, Freud had adopted a phylogenetic view of human memory at least as early as 1914, when he wrote in Totem and Taboo, that he took " ...

... Glossopteris included bug trees with annual growth rings, an indicator of seasonality; these flora were fossilized into coal beds on several parts of Antarctica. Coal deposits, with Glossopteris leaves and conifer needles, have been found within 250 miles of the South Pole. I have demonstrated that polar latitude has not in the geological past been a barrier to biological luxuriance (" Pliocene Antarctic," in AEON, Vol. 2, No. 1; "Anomalous Occurrence of Crocodilia in Eocene Polar Forests," in SISR, Vol. 14. Hapgood has very strong circumstantial evidence of a major Holocene warming in Antarctica which partly overlapped the maximal advance of the Wisconsinan Glaciation 18,000 bp ...

(11) The elicitation of such effects is not restricted to direct electrical stimulation. For instance: "ELF [extremely low frequency] electromagnetic fields and waves may be important biological stimuli because of their penetrability and long distance propagation . . . their frequencies and intensities are within the ranges of processes generated by living organisms."(12) ". . . diffuse behaviours, such as ambulation or emotional responses, which are controlled by a variety of environmental stimuli, have been reported to vary as a function ...

494. Velikovsky's Dreamwork [Journals] [Aeon]
... the reaction of a psychic anaphylaxis is specific and must be understood as a response not to the activating but to the sensitizing agent." This response revealed "a law of psychic reactions," from which Velikovsky extrapolated a broader, much more controversial contention: that there is no sharp demarcation between the anaphylaxis which is known to us from biological research and the psychic anaphylaxis here described. The connecting link is the state known as idiosyncrasy which is a biopsychic reaction...[I ]t is often not difficult to show that the boundary between hysterical and toxic symptoms is undefined. The same symptoms may appear when a person suffering from an idiosyncrasy takes some harmless substance thinking ...

... theory, combining both these proposals, was not obviously excluded. This led two British astronomers, Clube and Napier, to the suggestion that disintegrating large comets were mostly responsible for sustaining both the near-Earth asteroid and short-period comet populations and for controlling most aspects of terrestrial catastrophism (climate, orogeny, geomagnetic reversals, plate movements, mass extinction, biological speciation, etc). As a natural corollary of this thesis, a recent very large comet which was probably responsible for the Taurid meteoroid complex, was instanced as the most evident exemplar of the process by which the present near-Earth asteroid population was replenished and through which the Earth (and civilization) was currently experiencing catastrophism on a ten ...

... of very limited value, since the ancients seem to have had a great deal of difficulty understanding what Empedocles was saying; we are well-advised to stick closely to the fragments, and not to put too much stock in the third-person reports of such as Aristotle. The poems of Empedocles deal not only with cosmogony and nature, but also with biology and physiology. Empedocles himself was said to have been a physician, but the fragments and even the anecdotes suggest that he was more a student of what ails the mind than of what ails the body. He is said to have treated an insane man through music, and to have raised a woman from a death-like trance. These ...

497. On Method [Books] [de Grazia books]
... is not too far-fetched to compare the situation with that in worldwide politics that has produced so much terrorism. Cosmogony: A Ghost Field? In the present work, we have directed ourselves to the discipline, or court, of cosmogony. This, we might think, is logical, since the work concerns ultimate causes of the physical and biological world. Unfortunately, however, the field of cosmogony hardly exists. Such is indicated, for example, in the latest (1974) Encyclopaedia Britannica, where neither "cosmogony" nor "cosmology" is allowed a place between the substantial essays on "cosmic rays" and "Costa Rica". Further, in a mere several ...

... sacred, but because he believes a great many phenomena and actions are sacred. He sacralizes. A thorough moral defense of religion from the standpoint of its expression through sacral man has not appealed to modern writers. Such old and religiously circumscribed works as Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress will hardly do for these days, when the field instruments of sociology, biology, psychology, economics and political science need to be orchestrated for the purpose. Available are negative critiques of ritual and assaults upon the supernatural. But where are the moral scientific (as opposed to merely sociological) studies of the Baptist and the Secularist living on the same street, multiplied a thousandfold to cover the world scene? The ...

... possibility that Indo-European words can have cognates in non-lndo-European languages that were inherited from some still older and more inclusive linguistic grouping. A few linguists, however, are monogeneticists, or believers in the unitary origin of speech. They maintain the likelihood that there were pre-lndo-European bases that have derivatives in more than one language family. Being, like many biologically oriented linguists, a monogeneticist myself, I accept the cognation of the Indo-European root *m (e )u - with the polyphyletic and probably onomatopoetic - base *mu-, "to make inarticulate sounds", as manifest historically in Estonian musu, "a kiss", and prehistorically in Proto-Finnic *muja-, "to ...

... end of the world. It was a time when the planets were not mere specks in the night sky but instead loomed as majestic, sometimes terrifying, spheres in the heavens. Like me, Talbott received an early intellectual mentoring from that great but unrecognized interdisciplinary scholar of the 20th century, Immanuel Velikovsky. It was he who identified the biologically impossible fire-breathing, flying dragon or serpent as an awe-inspiring comet which later settled down to become the planet Venus. Velikovsky alone predicted the intense internal heat of Venus and was further vindicated before his death by the announcement of Venus' "cometary tail" which stretches as far as the Earth's orbit. As space exploration has continued, his ...
