91. QUANTAVOLUTION: COSMIC HERETICS: Part 5: Chapter 15: THE KNOWLEDGE INDUSTRY [Quantavolution Website]
... radicals have robbed banks and others their families, and still others lived under miserable and dangerous conditions. Deg made a dozen attempts in search of a teaching and study platform for catastrophe and quantavolution. Recall this was a period when all kinds of new courses were being pressed upon universities and colleges; standards were in general decline. Professors were wringing their hands ... meetings which would break the lecture audience into small sections of 25 persons. Related lectures and discussions would meet on the same day. The titles of the lectures follow: Primeval Catastrophes and the Development of Human Nature I. Time, Nature, and Human Beings 1. The Theory of Catastrophes De Grazia 2. Origins of Human Nature De Grazia 3. ... , losing Peter James in London, found Bernard Newgrosh as correspondent. Marvin Luckerman, a doctoral student at the University of California at Los Angeles, founded a biennial magazine, Catastrophism and Ancient History; relations with Greenberg were cool, and the British were not much impressed with his first issues, but praised the good try. Still he rounded up a ...

... together, it indicates that the Moon has experienced recent violent tidal events of a global nature. Taken individually, each of the phenomena can be interpreted as evidence of a recent catastrophe. Taken all together, the conclusion of recent catastrophism becomes undeniable and strongly supports Velikovsky's theory. I will also show that the accepted view, indicating that the lunar craters are ... this paper is not to argue from theory or consensus, but strictly from the evidence. VELIKOVSKY'S LUNAR HYPOTHESIS In 1950, Velikovsky claimed that the Moon was repeatedly involved in cosmic catastrophes: Together with the terrestrial globe it passed through the fabric of the great [protoplanet Venus comet of the time of Exodus, and in the conflicts of the eighth century before ... violent tidal events of a global nature. Taken individually, each of the phenomena can be interpreted as evidence of a recent catastrophe. Taken all together, the conclusion of recent catastrophism becomes undeniable and strongly supports Velikovsky's theory. I will also show that the accepted view, indicating that the lunar craters are caused by impact events, is contradicted by nearly all ...
93. Velikovsky and Catastrophism: A Hidden Agenda? [SIS C&C Review $]
... and a new image of Germany was propounded. Its best known spokesman was Fichte, who, in his Addresses to the German Nation of 1808, saw the cause of Germany's catastrophe as its degeneration by French social values. He preached instead that Germany had a spiritual mission to save the world though its own moral perfection of race, society and language. ... the first book received, he fears "that historians will have even greater psychological difficulties in revising their views... than the astronomers had in accepting the story of cosmic catastrophes in the solar system in historical times." [ibid, vii This helps us to see against what the second front (as well as the first) is really directed ...

94. THE LATELY TORTURED EARTH: PART I: ATMOSPHERICS: 2.The Gaseous Complex [Quantavolution Website]
... may do better. It is not written in some law that enough time must be allowed to let humans get away, bag and baggage, from the changing air. Every catastrophe which they underwent would demand a climatic response as one of its effects. Hence there may have been a score of global shifts in climate within a 14,000 year holocene ... so delicate that most sudden and violent transactions in space or on Earth transform its constituents and their behavior. Considering what is to come in this book by way of demonstrating terrestrial catastrophes, one may wonder how it happens that life has survived five thousand, much less five billion years. The very fragility of the aura around us bespeaks the recency of the ... an attempt to keep the planetary bodies in place, eliminate cometary encounters and still explain catastrophes upon Earth. Thus Harlow Shapley, who led some scientists in an attack upon Velikovsky's catastrophism in 1950, himself had in 1935 proposed a solar nova as the explosive generator of space X-rays. Hurricanes, volcanism, interrupted rotation, ozone destruction, ice ages, geomagnetic ...
95. Bookshelf [SIS C&C Review $]
... would mark "intrinsic trends to higher states", if increased brain size does not? Two sections will be of especial interest to readers of this Review. "Uniformity and Catastrophe" (No. 18) attempts to clear up some misunderstandings about 19th-century geology, particularly the idea that before LYELL shone the light of uniformitarianism into that science, it was ... Worlds in Collision and Earth in Upheaval once, which is more than can be said for some of Velikovsky's "critics". Gould turns quite naturally to the geological evidence for catastrophes in the latter volume, but he feels that Velikovsky has handled it "rather badly and carelessly". But I doubt if Gould's criticisms will cut much ice with Velikovsky's supporters ... " At this point I had better allay the reader's disbelief by assuring him that these words are directly quoted from Gould's book. Let us follow the train of thought again- catastrophism is completely disproved by the fact that the evidence supporting it can also be interpreted by theories of continental drift; Gould appreciates that these theories- the currently popular paradigm- could ...
96. Thoth Vol. III, No. 16 Dec 1, 1999 [Thoth Website]
... (As I said above, the original state of formlessness, prior to the emergence of the created "order", is negative, but with no sense of violence or catastrophe. The un- doing of creation, the "return to chaos", is invariably catastrophic. But we'll get to that.) The roots _anti_ and _ante_ ... ..... by Wal Thornhill---- CLOSING THE GAP By Amy Acheson When Immanuel Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision was published, in 1950, the mention of catastrophism in any form was anathema to science. Ideas have changed rapidly since then. Plate tectonics and the Spokane floods have crept into geology. Punctuated equilibrium and mass extinctions by asteroid ... Stephen J Gould's "punctuated equilibrium" and Forese Carlo Wezel's "anastrophic speciation" are eroding the "gradualist" paradigm. These concepts may be a stone's away throw from the catastrophist viewpoint, but they don't actually throw the stone. They say "sudden evolutionary changes", they say "following catastrophic extinctions", they say "species appear fully-formed and ...

... or falling snow, if that snow was lifted up by evaporative processes from the world's oceans. Mr. Field is to be commended on his insight relative to celestial initiation of catastrophe but his effort to marry the silliness of gradualism to catastrophism is doomed by the evidence On the subject of Earth's geomagnetic field, Mr. Field accepts the absurdity of the magnetic ... the past were intrinsic nonsense. Velikovsky never claimed that all, or most, or even any, historical records should be "mythologized" or "spiritualized" to describe cosmic catastrophes. Rather, he brought to the historical records the same willingness to accept the ancient records as fact, until proven otherwise. Where Velikovsky erred, as in rejuggling the neo-Babylonian ... evaporative processes from the world's oceans. Mr. Field is to be commended on his insight relative to celestial initiation of catastrophe but his effort to marry the silliness of gradualism to catastrophism is doomed by the evidence On the subject of Earth's geomagnetic field, Mr. Field accepts the absurdity of the magnetic retention by the Earth's core. The core of the Earth ...
98. HOMO SCHIZO I: Chapter 7: PSYCHOPATHOLOGY OF HISTORY [Quantavolution Website]
... no history and knew hardly any. It was ego-destroying. If, by some concatenation of events, it is revived, then its more tolerable parts are recalled. The unbelievable catastrophe that Elohim brought upon the world in the great flood is so honeyed for the surviving clientele, for the Noahs, that it can be read by tender-hearted little children without qualms ... These famous lines of Shakespeare seem to be in context here. Starting with its creation, mankind moved through time on a spiral path around its schizoid core. On numerous occasions catastrophes changed the arc of the spiral, sending humanity closer to the core in mentation and behavior. Whenever the natural environment seemed to settle down, it appeared that he might invent ... solid earth turns to water, a storm carries him up into the air, all his relatives are dead... In the absence of a scientific tradition of quantavolution and catastrophism, Jung, like most other observers, assumes that the individual is displacing his fears upon the religious stories, fairy-tales, and cinema accounts of disaster throughout his life. Of ...
99. Father Kugler's Falling Star [Kronos $]
... describes complicated, extraordinary and violent natural events. And yet neither, on the other hand, could the appearance of Venus as the morning star awaken the idea of a universal catastrophe-- even in the wildest imagination. One might well conceive of the morning star as the driver of Helios' chariot, or imagine the evening star to be a deity ... Battle of the Stars"in the books of the Sibylline Oracles. Kugler is rare among trained specialists in history and astronomy in giving some credence to the possibility of large-scale natural catastrophes, but nevertheless finds himself constrained by the orthodox beliefs he has inherited. In the paper under consideration, this results in an interesting dichotomy: Kugler sees the Phaethon story as ... he examines the two legends named in the title for the natural events around which they were written, and comes to conclusions which are at once encouraging and disappointing to proponents of catastrophism. What distinguishes Kugler from his contemporaries studying the same ancient documents is his conviction that there is more to them than their superficial appearance might indicate. In his introduction to Sibyllinischer ...
100. CHAOS AND CREATION: CHAPTER 6: THE URANIANS [Quantavolution Website]
... during Uranian times when the heat of Super-Uranus and the binary electrical axis began to dwindle- but that before the Earth could be covered with ice, Super-Uranus novaed and the Lunarian catastrophe to be discussed soon, dumped most of the ice into the new oceanic basins. As a second theory, the ice was dumped, not formed on the Earth, as ... 24. I would say that the contest is a pseudo-competition: humans quickly civilized and agriculturalized both highland and lowland. We have simply been unable yet to unscramble the succession of catastrophes that affected now one, now the other locale. As everywhere else in the world, the Mexican excavations are plagued by the hiatuses that occur at intervals, denoting catastrophes, ... . A widespread and long-lasting myth holds that originally heaven and earth were close lovers and ultimately were separated for various reasons that can be related to the end of an age and catastrophism. Earth is often feminine as in Hesiod's Greek Theogony, but here in the Egyptian version of about 3000 years age (Tamenill Papyrus) is masculine figures (b) and ...
