281. The Cosmic Mountain [Books]
... ? The last thing suggested (to us) by slithering serpents is the idea of a creator! Yet the prototypical identity of the erect serpent/dragon and the cosmic mountain gives striking coherence to the symbolism and places the world-wide union of creator and serpent above grotesque and inexplicable coincidence. 47. Ammon, with serpentine trunk. An equally bizarre feature of the mythic serpent is its phallic powers, as documented by Crawley, Hartland, Briffault, Eliade, and others. Here is Eliade's summary of the theme: "Even today it is said in the Abruzzi that the serpent copulates with all women. The Greeks and Romans also believed it. Alexander the Great's mother, Olympia ...

... that not only did the Cambrian explosion produce most of the animal phyla existing today, but perhaps as many as 100 altogether, according to some, the majority being short-lived [160,164,168,169]. However, the classification remains controversial, some now arguing that new finds make `the Cambrian bestiary look a lot less bizarre than it used to' [165], with the individual species capable of being grouped into far fewer phyla, including ones still extant [166,167,170,171]. `Nevertheless', wrote the assistant editor of Nature, Henry Gee, in August 1992: "much recent circumstantial evidence seems to indicate that ...

... is, however, also extremely clever, as is the indication of the high eclipse area' by means of the noses of the Human Winged Figures, the spirals of the shells, and the condor beaks. The symbolism of the Trumpeters, too, as indicating the aphelion and perihelion halves of the year is particularly neat, with a bizarre touch in the use of the decapitated human head. It is worthy of note, also, that the deviser of the Calendar took care to indicate both the obliquity and the latitude, and it is much to be regretted that, although he gives a date' by means of the solstitial and equinoctial balance', it was beyond ...

285. On testing The Polar configuration [Journals] [Aeon]
... Moon." (158) But there is another peculiarity also: Though always identified by scholars as the lunar sphere, Sin is apparently never presented as a "half-moon," three quarters moon" of "full moon." He is simply Udsar, "the crescent." (159) And though no relationship would seem more bizarre under our familiar sky, Babylonian art continually presents the crescent of Sin wrapped half way around the enclosed sun cross. (160) I offer a few of many examples below: Figure 6 Did this relationship of the Sin-crescent to the sun god's enclosure originate in a haphazard combination of once-independent symbols, or in a fundamental equation? The ...

... of others." (298) What this means, quite simply, is that Bauer himself, and he alone, is the standard of truth. That is the limit of his alleged "objectivity." To perceive this very incongruous and embarrassingly unscientific attitude in Bauer, this colossal self-centeredness, allows us to make some sense of the bizarre statement in his Preface where he describes how, having at last (in his expert opinion) finally understood the Velikovsky Affair, he is "no longer in a state of surprise." "I think that sort of change, from a state of surprise to one of calm acceptance, is in fact a demonstration that understanding has ...
