171. Primate Perception of Celestial Events [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon Volume VI, Number 5 Home | Issue Contents Primate Perception Of Celestial Events Tania ta Maria Tools have long been known to be used by various animals, from apes, to birds, to insects. Monkeys, however, can use tools in what Jennifer Steinberg calls "a surprisingly sophisticated way." Capuchin monkeys in northeastern Brazil are known to use rocks in order to smash the tough shells of palm nuts which they are smart enough to place on stone slabs. That these primates are self-aware has also been shown by Gordon Gallup. Anesthetizing various primates in order to mark them with an odorless dye above one eyebrow and on an ear without their knowing, ...
172. Celestial Rings [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:3 (Dec 1998) Home | Issue Contents Forum Celestial Rings Roger W. Wescott, from Southbury, Connecticut, writes: AEON deserves an accolade for having published Henry Zemel's paper on celestial rings [1 ] as the lead article in the last issue. Ever since the journal Stonehenge Viewpoint introduced me to the work of the late Isaac Vail, I have thought it likely that most solar planets, including our own, either have, or have had, ring systems. Vail's pioneering work has been undeservedly neglected by most catastrophists, with the notable exception of Milton Zysman whose "mirror dome" concept presupposes a vanished terrestrial ring. [2 ...
173. The Lord Of Light [Journals] [Aeon]
... support for this hypothesis. It should not surprise us, therefore, to find that Christianity- as the successor to the great religions of the ancient Afro-Eurasian littoral and beyond- embodies a vital astral component in its liturgical and iconological makeup while the figure of Jesus, as the focus of Christianity, became "the glorious theological summation of antiquity's celestial gods." (1 ) Yet, while earlier writers (2 ) have dutifully detailed the pagan prototypes of Jesus, they have either neglected to note the cosmic context of sacred Christianity or not fully appreciated the non-solar aspects of Jesus' astral kingship. (3 ) History And Mystery- A Star is Born .. .[ ...
174. Velikovsky's Sources Volume One [Books]
... the whole time, or stood; as they were at the beginning, sothey remained until the end." C Certainly the darkness was not of the ordinary, earthly kind :" it came from hell, and it could be felt". Furthermore: " It was as thick as () and all the time it prevailed a celestial light brightened the dwellings of the children of Israel, whereby they could see what the Egyptians were doing under cover of darkness". A. Thus, the Israelites were able to see where the Egyptians had hidden their gold and jewellery! Still on the plague of darkness, V writes on WIC p.70 : " The rabbinical ...
175. The Opening Of The Mouth Ritual - Part III [Journals] [Aeon]
... I'll leave that to the lovers of mysticism and fuzzy logic. However, there is no denying that these two very different people on opposite sides of a great ocean not only often perceived the same reality but, in some cases, performed virtually the same rituals based on that reality. In these instances it appears that the occurrences in the celestial realm, as delineated by the Saturn theory, were interpreted in much the same manner by these two cultures. In other cases, however, the resulting rituals could hardly be more different in nature and tone, even though it is clear that the original spark was indeed the same for both. It is one thing to compare Egypt ...
176. The Solar System and Electro-Gravitic Theory [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon I:3 (1988) Home | Issue Contents The Solar System and Electro-Gravitic Theory Charles Ginenthal If electro-gravitic theory is correct it should, in addition to the celestial phenomena described and delineated in "The Electro-Gravitic Theory of Celestial Motion," also clearly explain the behavior of comets, meteors, asteroids and natural satellites. Can the theory account for the unusual rotational and orbital characteristics of these bodies left unexplained by traditional celestial mechanics? And most importantly, are the explanations of the theory self-consistent and in accord with observational data? We have previously concluded that small bodies such as comets, when characterized by relatively large electromagnetic fields, will pursue highly elliptical orbits. ...
177. The Saturn Theory [Journals] [SIS Review]
... primary architects of the Saturn theory. His research interests include ancient mythology, archaeoastronomy, and evolutionary theory. He has an MS from Iowa State University, where he studied genetics and psychology. Summary The paper offers a brief summary of the Saturn theory - specifically, the idea that during the prehistoric period a colossal configuration of planets dominated the celestial landscape and left an indelible mark on primary belief systems of ancient man. Evidence is presented that the planet Venus only recently moved on a radically different orbit. The author also offers a serious of basic ground rules for establishing a science of mythology. The Saturn theory, in addition to presenting a comprehensive model of ancient myth, offers ...
178. The Double Axe and the Celestial Twins [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon VI:6 (Dec 2001) Home | Issue Contents The Double Axe and the Celestial Twins Marinus Anthony van der Sluijs Introduction It has become a habit among mythologists and students of religion to systematically ignore oddities and irregularities in ancient testimony, stressing only what is deemed sound and intelligible from a modern point of view. A prime example of this unspoken principle, which has in fact been attested since the appearance of Plato's Dialogues, is the explanation given to anomalous superstitions in lightninglore. No one will deny the central place lightning and thunder storms occupy in the everyday experience of the godly realm. As a matter of fact, the concept of the storm god ...
179. Prelude to Creation [Journals] [Aeon]
... cold weather which is not really in keeping with the evidence at hand. While the reasoning behind this bold hypothesis may be valid, adaptation to the cold within one generation is not called for. Be that as it may, as far as early man- both Neanderthals and Cro-Mag-nons- is concerned, proto-Saturn would have been the only visible celestial body in Earth's primordial sky. Due to its axial coupling with Earth, it would have appeared to be permanently immobile in Earth's north celestial pole. Proto-Saturn's circumstellar disk would have given the impression of a slowly rotating nebular cloud which various tribes believed to have been formed of fog, mist, or foam. Plasmatic auroral effects on its ...
180. The Day the Sun Stood still [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... sky. Then "the Sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day" (Joshua 10.13). The Moon also appeared to stop its motion. It is no coincidence that stones fell from the sky at the same time that Earth's rotation was halted: clearly, a celestial bodyof some sort was responsible for the simultaneity of these phenomena.1 There are other accounts of this lengthened day in the Old Testament. The prophet Isaiah was actively prophesying just before the catastrophe of 701 BC, which might well be termed "the day the Sun went backward." The rulers of Jerusalem thought that if they made ...
