55. The Countdown to a New Celestial Hazard [Aeon Journal $]
... the American catastrophist school eschews the celestial hazard most likely to plunge us into the next dark age. Velikovsky was apparently of the view that human society could be collectively traumatized by catastrophe, leading to a kind of revulsion towards celestial hazards which is passed down through the subconscious from generation to generation. (4) This was his area of expertise and perhaps ... These would be a useful focus for further field, climatological, historical and social studies. There is a paradox here, of course, which has yet to be faced. Catastrophes which are dissected cease to be catastrophes and become merely a continuum of physical events. Before this stage is reached however, it is to be expected that some particularly intense catastrophes ... the true celestial hazard begins to take shape! It can nevertheless be assumed that this unexpected turn of events has now brought us to the final stage of the great twentieth century catastrophism debate. Already forty years have passed since Velikovsky inadvertently raised the dust by seeking to reinstate a biblical view of celestial hazards. Already twenty years have passed since near-Earth objects became ...

... Bible was very different. So it is possible that Velikovsky, in rejecting Beaumont's anti-Jewish history, could not bring himself to acknowledge the debt he had to his ideas of cosmic catastrophe. Velikovsky saw himself as the first and great leader in neo-catastrophism, whereas perhaps the truth is that, as Clube& Napier have said, he was the last of the ... thought which amused our Scottish editor. More to the point though, between 1925 and 1946, many years before Velikovsky published Worlds in Collision, Beaumont published 3 books on planetary catastrophes in which 25 individual points were exactly the same as those in Velikovsky's work.

... beyond the Pillars of Herakles, not offshore mainland Greece; Atlantis was a barbarian empire, not part of the Minoan-Mykenaean world; no volcanic eruption figures in Plato's account of the catastrophe; and most of Thera was not in fact submerged. An alternative approach would treat Plato's story as political allegory. This has prima facie justification, inasmuch as the tale is ... storehouse of symbols and motifs that once constituted the coherent astronomical-astrological science of our pre-literate ancestors in all parts of the world. The events of myth, and especially the great mythic catastrophes of devastation by fire and flood, are seen as a mapping of major changes in the celestial order onto the familiar dimensions of terrestrial society and geography. These changes are those ... the option of both/ and. Political analysis, albeit necessary, leaves out entirely the level of meaning emphasized by Plato and crucial to our contemporary concern: that of astronomical catastrophism.
