J. NORMAN LOCKYER INTRODUCTION The Annular-Canopy Theory of Isaac N. Vail (1840-1912) represents an important milestone. In the unification of artificially compartmentalized sciences. Here we find a valiant attempt to weave the sciences of Geology, Astronomy, and Anthropology into a single tapestry. That ...
12. Trisms and Planetary Iconography [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 2 No 2 (1994) Home | Issue Contents Trisms and Planetary Iconography (1 ) Charles Raspil According to Velikovsky, a long period of planetary chaos ended with stabilizing finality in 687 BC. (2 ) Concentrating on celestial events occurring after that date, I have been finding iconographic and literary evidence that periods of sporadic planetary instability may have characterized the solar system (3 )-at least up until the last few centuries. By analyzing common elements of design and form that appear in my tracings or sketches of original works of mythical and religious art, I hope to demonstrate that these elements not only offer more evidence of this instability, ...

14. On testing The Polar configuration [Journals] [Aeon]
... "Reconstructing the Saturn Myth," AEON Vol. I, No. 1. It is assumed that readers will have read that article and are familiar with the general context of the theory discussed in the following pages. Defining the model In presenting the case for Saturn's polar configuration it is necessary to draw upon many wide-ranging pieces of a celestial puzzle. But the theory can only give meaning to the separate pieces by reference to a model outside all generally accepted theoretical frameworks. In effect, our interpretation of each significant datum requires one to tentatively grant a sweeping theory reinterpreting all of the data. It would be an understatement to say that this can create a major difficulty in ...
15. Sothis and the Morning Star in the Pyramid Texts [Journals] [Aeon]
... Aeon III:5 (May 1994) Home | Issue Contents Sothis and the Morning Star in the Pyramid Texts Ev Cochrane It has frequently been observed that star-worship pervades the earliest religion of Egypt. Certainly this is true of that religion as it is represented in the Pyramid Texts. (1 ) Countless passages therein identify the king with one celestial body or another and describe in some detail his peregrinations (or his soul's) throughout the stellar regions until he ultimately comes to reside in a celestial Elysian fields. Despite numerous attempts to identify various stars and planets in the Pyramid Texts there is little agreement as to the specific asterisms involved and, in any case, there are grave ...

"Lukae" is light and "Lukos" is wolf, and in this day far removed from the day when these terms began their career, we have to determine according to their manifest relation whether light or wolf is meant. The epithet "wolf-born" is some times used by the Greek poets in ...
17. Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning [Books]
... translation of the original Arabic text of Kazwini's 2 Description of the Constellations, written in the 13th century, which forms the basis of the Sternndmen, with Ideler's additions and annotations from classical and other sources. From this much information in my book is derived. The Bedford Catalogue in Captain (afterwards Vice-Admiral) William Henry Smyth's 3 Cycle of Celestial Objects, a book of exceptional value as to information on star-names and unique in its racy style, also has been drawn from. Sir Joseph Norman Lockyer's recent Dawn of Astronomy - a most interesting work even if all his deductions are not accepted- has furnished many of the references to Egypt and its temple worship of various stars; ...
18. The Ship of Heaven [Journals] [Aeon]
... much like our sky today, I have argued that early man witnessed a remarkable assembly of planets moving close to the Earth and presenting a spectacular apparition in the heavens. I have called this apparition the polar configuration, and suggested that its tangible forms are mirrored in all of ancient myth and symbol. In fact, the history of this celestial apparition was the history of the gods. I have claimed also that the theory of the polar configuration can be tested and verified through a comprehensive survey of ancient records; and that the validity of the theory will become increasingly apparent as one descends to particulars: the very level at which other explanations collapse is that at which the explanatory ...
19. The Cause of Gravitation [Books]
... causes the earth's rotation. This identification, only recently discovered, also provides an understanding of the nature of gravity and gives scientific validity to the theory that polar ice caps, when they grow oversize, cause successive roll -arounds of the globe. We find that the cause of the earth's rotation is the all pervading force of nature known as celestial radiant energy. The electrical energy rays from celestial space, shot out by countless billions of stars ( suns ) , collide with the earth, are absorbed by it and create its materials. These celestial energy rays create the phenomena of weight and, striking unevenly, cause the earth to rotate. This section will undertake to demonstrate that ...

... the legends of Atum. The texts of all periods agree that in the beginning Atum, or Khepera, floated alone in the Abyss without a resting place. The god recalls the original epoch: .. . When I was alone in the waters .. . before I had found anywhere to stand or sit, before Heliopolis [the celestial earth] had been founded that I might be there, before a perch had been formed for me to sit on .. . (9 ) "I found no place where I could stand," states the god in a similar account. (10) In the hieroglyph for "to stand," (aha) the ...
