111. The Stream Surrounding the Earth [Journals] [SIS Review]
... have looked like unevenly flowing water. The second factor is that the reflection of sunlight off the ice particles in the ring may have appeared like the sunlight reflecting off water on the Earth. It is probable that both factors were working. The records clearly denote a sea, ocean, river or stream that is cosmic, heavenly, or celestial. The water is described as encircling, surrounding, girdling, and extending beneath the Earth. A common adjective is endless'. The appearance of the celestial waters, in most cultures, goes back to very ancient times, and is associated with the process of creation. Gaster and Brinton recognise and discuss the primality' of water ...
112. Intimations of an Alien Sky [Journals] [Aeon]
... , primitive man endowed them with life and could best compare them to the living things he saw around him- and this included himself. As I have indicated in earlier works, (3 ) the anthropomorphism of the heavenly bodies was nurtured despite the realization that these spheres could have been anything but human. To our ancient progenitors, these celestial lights were mysterious beings who followed a law unto themselves. Totally impervious to man's needs or desires, they were, in more than one respect, absolutely supreme. Requiring a generic name, these mysterious celestial beings eventually became known as gods- which, in whatever language or dialect thereof, was at first an indistinctive term employed to ...
113. Heracles and the Planet Mars [Journals] [Aeon]
... ) The problem with Harrison's explanation is that it leaves too many questions unanswered. What, for example, is the objective reference of the sun-god's cup? Another problem is that both Helios and Heracles are identified with the solar orb; thus a confrontation between the two is difficult to imagine. That Heracles should here be identified with some other celestial body seems more probable, the question is which one? Turning to the Greek testimony on this matter, Eratosthenes and several other early writers can be cited in favor of an identification of Heracles with the planet Mars. (14) Such an identification was apparently fairly common in the Hellenistic Age, the astronomical writings of Petosiris attesting to ...
... in Scotland, mainly within the Caledonian region, especially about the Moray Firth, although others were standing about a century ago both north and south of it. Lamentable indeed is it that most of these are left to moulder and rot out of doors owing to the ignorance of the purpose of these sacred stones. The engravings on them bear celestial signs of the Zodiac and other heavenly bodies, and others, like the Elgin Stone, devote only small space to the symbols-yet sufficient to anyone able to interpret them-and depict a scene instead. Chiselled in low relief, they agree with the Chaldean adage amid should be recognized for what they really are, Thoth or Hermetic Pillars, or ...

116. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Review]
... On a spiral arm of a galaxy called the Milky Way, nine planets move in peaceful, clock-like procession around a yellow dwarf star called the Sun. The planets move on highly predictable paths, and by all appearances nothing has changed in a billion years. The inhabitants of the third planet, the Earth, can see five of their celestial neighbors without the aid of telescopes. Surrounded by the background stars, these objects do little to distinguish themselves in the night sky. And few denizens of Earth today have learned to identify the five visible planets against the starry dome. Earlier cultures were not so complacent about the planets. They invoked these bodies with fear and reverence. ...
117. More on Ancient Astronomy [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... about the value of ancient observations, as well as other non-planet associations with the number SEVEN, from Judith Kingston Bjorkman's Meteors and the Ancient Near East (Meteoritics 1973, 8, pp 91-132). [Page 92-93]: Almost all of the astromantic texts which speak of meteors, etc., are of a type also known as celestial omens. An example of such a text is the following (Thompson, 1900, 202 obv. lines 5 to 9): If a shooting star flashes (as bright) as a light or as a torch from east to west and disappears (on the horizon): the army of the enemy will be slain in its ...
118. The Catastrophic Substructure of Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra (Part II) [Journals] [Kronos]
... true source. Cleopatra, says Davidson, is given traditional sets of qualities which relate her, among others, to The Whore of Babylon, a brilliant Queen, the temptress Circe, a provocative gypsy, and the goddess Venus. To this list we must add Velikovsky's Venus, for she is also given the qualities of a fiercely disruptive celestial body. For instance, Davidson describes her as active and hot- so hot that the seeming Cupids on her barge with their fans only make her "delicate cheeks" glow with their sensual warmth.31 She is portrayed as a disturber of natural order. She stands for excess, since she will not pause at the limits set ...

120. THE ROAD TO SATURN (EXCERPTS FROM AN AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL ESSAY) [Journals] [Aeon]
... Predominant among these disasters was the universal deluge, which the Biblical account associates with Noah. Moreover, the cosmic thread that ran through the ages was intertwined with these disasters so that it did not take long to realize that Velikovsky had been right when he insisted that catastrophism was literally heaven-caused. What became more and more obvious was that the celestial order with which ancient man was so obsessed was entirely different from the one we are presently acquainted with. Ancient man described the Sun as rising in the west, setting in the east, stopping in mid-course, and turning right around. According to ancient texts, the planets seem to have occupied different positions in the sky; they ...
