141. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Where is the text? In the same article on the p. 167 there are references to Divine clouds, and Great dew, and I think about the ? clouds of glory ? which are also the ? shadow of death ? and about ambrosia (manna); where is this text? 2. I refered to 360 (day) year of the Ebers papyrus, divided in 12 months; this I found in some text; but how is the reading of the Papyrus-which translation I should read? 3. Reform of calendar of Sesonk III, to which I refered in my Mars chapter. As you see I suppose that it was a real calendar reform. What was the reform? 4. Cambridge Ancient History I, p. 159, states that Septuagint I Kings xvi. 29; xx. 51; 2 Kings I, 17 show traces of another system. I expect to find something that would support my chronology of the Ahab period. Would you please translate these texts? I have not seen a Septuagint translated into German of English ...

... [7, studying the nearby Kalasasaya observatory, whose alignments accord with an obliquity of the ecliptic of 23 8" 48'. The present reading is 23 27". In Chichen Itza (Mexico) is the temple of Kukulka, equated with Quetzalcoatl, Orion reborn as a star, Plumed Serpent and Venus. Here human sacrifice was practised in turn by the Olmecs, Mayans, Toltecs and Aztecs in order to forestall the coming of the end of the world. To predict this, they developed sophisticated maths and an accurate calendar. Cholula, another temple of Quetzalcoatl, is 3 times more massive than the Great Pyramid of Egypt. At Tres Zapotes is an Olmec/Mayan calendrical stela dated to 3rd Sept. 32 BC and close by is a giant stone negroid head of c. 100 BC [8,9. According to some scholars, the Egyptians and Olmecs had no transition from primitive to advanced civilisation [9,10. The Book of the Dead seems to have no precedent. In Teotihuacan the pyramids are laid out much as at ...

... an amplitude (angular distance north of east) of about 32 degrees, an increase factor of some 36%. Such an amplitude exaggeration would make the angular distances between the maximum rising or setting points of the planets much more easily discernible to anyone making a regular study and observation of them. Horizon reference That ancient astronomers made use of the horizon as a natural and convenient reference scale for measuring and correlating movements of the heavenly bodies is a well-attested fact. In numerous articles in HORUS and KRONOS dealing with Stonehenge as a luni-solar calendar, 1 have amply demonstrated that the horizon-marking method was the principal system used in setting up the sunmoon calendar device that the site represented. By noting the maximum setting (or rising) points of the planets along that scale, and thereby the relative degree to which each, in its separate celestial journey, "wandered away" from the sun, the astronomers erroneously deduced that the order thus derived represented the correct relative distances of the planets. Figure 4: Relative maximum amplitudes of the Sun and the planets at setting What ...

... is whether this memory is IQ independent or IQ related. The first problem needing consideration is therefore concerned with the nature of the memory system which is involved. In the idiot-savant this has, until recently, been deemed to be a relatively unorganized rote memory. It is supposed to be mechanical, inflexible and extremely concrete. However, in a number of studies we have demonstrated that the outstanding memories of idiotsavant calculators and musicians are founded on strategies which are rule based, and which draw on a knowledge of the structure of the calendar or of music. "In addition to evidence concerning the organized nature of the specific memories of idiot-savants for dates and music, we have also accumulated evidence that the eliciting of rules and the development of rule-based strategies tended to be specific in the particular areas of ability of these subjects. For example, although able to calculate past and future dates rapidly, calendrical calculators were often quite poor in the addition and subtraction of numbers unrelated to the calendar. Similarly, in one experiment, musical memory in an idiot-savant was found to ...

If actually a temple for Venus worship, its western orientation confines the relation to some aspect of Venus as Evening Star. Chichen Itza- The Temple of Kukulcan (called the Castle by the Spanish) is a famous symbol of the ancient Yucatan and the passion of its people far astronomical calendrics. Its design and decoration seem to incorporate the elements of the civil calendar yew. There are 91 steps in each of the four stairways plus the temple platform which totals 365 to represent the days in the yew. There we nine levels in two halves which make 18, the number of 20-day months (plus a special 5-day "month') in the Mayan yew. The decorative pawls on each face of the nine levels total 52. the number of yews in the Mayan 'century'.

For such a purpose, we need only call upon the appropriate rules for evaluating historical evidence. Let a comet appear in the sky. Let the “zeroes” line up on a calendar. Let the weather turn stormy, or world events grow unsettled. When such things occur they will invariably trigger a cultural response the “doomsday anxiety”, a fear of the end of the world.

... familiar to everybody, but this function of the sun appears to be essentially independent of any connection with the stars of the zodiac. There is also a further overlap in that the new moon (or any other recognisable phase of the moon) occurs in each of the 12 zodiacal signs in turn (though only with certainty when the year is precisely divisible into 12 months of equal length), thus offering an alternative way of naming the month. In general, the lunar system is an easier and a more practical one for calendar purposes than the solar one, for it is obviously a sophisticated operation to identify a star directly behind the sun with any degree of precision; moreover; in a purely lunar system, one can also identify the days within the month by the shape and the size of the moon, for it changes sufficiently in shape and size from night to night to make it a very practical substitute for the modern printed calendar. One thus only has to consult the zodiacal stars if one also needs to name the month; this can ...

... occurred during the reign of Nabonassar. Nevertheless, starting with the reign of Nabonassar there began to be kept a yearly record of outstanding political events, known as the Babylonian Chronicle. Since Ptolemy calculated the years by the era of Nabonassar, it continued to be used by astronomers until the Julian era was adopted as the scientific era during the Renaissance. The common explanation for the adoption of the era of Nabonassar, which is still repeated today in standard textbooks, is that at that time in Mesopotamia there was introduced a new luni-solar calendar, which gradually was adopted in the neighbouring countries, including Greece. But Kugler realized that the introduction of this calendar was not the cause, but the result of whatever caused the adoption of the new era. In the very first pages of the introduction to his Sternkunde, Kugler states that only with the beginning of the era of Nabonassar did Babylonian and Assyrian astronomers feel the urge 'to ascertain and record the heavenly motions according to space and time by measurement and number.' Before this era the astronomers of Mesopotamia would have ...
