221. The Ramesside Star Tables [Journals] [SIS Review]
... whatever the time of its rising or setting (the sun, moon and planets are more variable in this respect); it even appears that some of the seeming mis-identifications in the present tables could have been due to usurpation of the regular point of rising of one star by another. The Constellations Observed The constellations of the ecliptic, with celestial longitude marked for 700 BC and 1980 AD, to take into account the precession. (0 is conventionally the vernal equinox or "first point of Aries".) The letters along the base of the figure were added by the Editor, and mark Brugsch's constellations, as designated in the article, according to the identifications suggested by ...
222. Measurements of the Electromagnetic Properties of "Space" [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... , far removed from any planetary or other source. It is further assumed that the constant of gravitation, the so-called "proportionality constant," relating gravitational attractive force to the Newtonian product of masses divided by the square of the distance separating the mass centroids, is totally unrelated to electrical quantities such as electrical charge. Since inertial navigation, celestial mechanics and the dramatically successful control of the trajectories of space vehicles do not require the explicit use of any electrical terms, this final assumption appears to be above educated criticism. Our proposal consists of a practical design of measurements and computations, using both electrical engineering and celestial mechanics, to determine whether the above-specified assumptions are valid. The ...

224. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... scientists are unwilling to give up the "dirty snowball" hypothesis. Dr Axford said that it was possible that the dirty snowball had a dark coating of carbon-based compounds that had been plasticised by several billion years of exposure to cosmic rays beyond the edge of the solar system before the comet entered solar orbit; "Halley's comet may be a celestial chocolate-coated ice cream" he said. From a Velikovskian point of view, such a carbon rich exterior and the discovery of spectroscopic signals indicating organic compounds in the tail of the comet (noted by Dr Dayal Wickramasinghe, the brother of Chandra) was a strong possibility. According to the theory of the eruption of cometary bodies from the ...
225. Thoth Vol I, No. 13: May 16, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... to access the back issues.- To the traditions of a polar power, previously cited, should be added the following: In the Persian Zend Avesta the creator-king Ahura Mazda rules from atop the world axis, the fixed station "around which the many stars revolve." Iranian cosmology, as reported by Leopold de Saussure, esteemed the celestial pole as the center and summit of heaven, where resided Kevan, the sovereign power of heaven, called "the Great One in the middle of the sky." Throughout the ancient Near East, according to the comprehensive research of H. P. L'Orange, the "King of the Universe" appears as a central sun, ...
226. The Velikovsky Affair [Books] [de Grazia books]
... conversations I had with him ten years ago, he summed up this thinking by stating that one of the implications of his work is to reinstate Descartes as a rightful contestant of Newton in the understanding of the texture of the universe. Velikovsky quoted the following summation by Herbert Butterfield of the results of the famous contest between the two views of celestial mechanics: The clean and comparatively empty Newtonian skies ultimately carried the day against a Cartesian universe packed with matter and agitated with whirlpools, for the existence of which scientific observations provided no evidence. '[ 2 ]. Velikovsky was confident that this evidence would be found, and it has been found. There is reasonable ground to hope ...
227. On Mars and Pestilence [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon III:4 (Dec 1993) Home | Issue Contents On Mars and Pestilence Ev Cochrane The recent emergence of archaeoastronomy as a science has produced a wealth of information about the various celestial bodies. To date, however, the collection of information has proceeded at a faster pace than has analysis. This is nowhere more apparent than in comparative analyses of ancient traditions surrounding the planets. One wants to know, for example, what to make of the fact that the ancient Mesoamerican skywatchers- like their Babylonian counterparts- represented the planet Venus as a great warrior or as a fire-breathing dragon. (61) Or why the Babylonians together with several other advanced cultures ...
228. The Archangels [Journals] [Kronos]
... Consistency of planetary identification dictates that he should have. Meanwhile, despite the fact that he was well aware of the evidence presented above, just as he was of Velikovsky's identifications, O'Gheoghan still favored Venus as the sole agent of the Sodomitic destruction. Gabriel's role as Mars was discounted. What reasoning led O'Gheoghan to this conclusion? 4. Celestial Twins Before answering that last question, it is necessary to backtrack a little. Velikovsky's identification of the archangel Michael as the planet Venus was based on the traditional role that Michael is made to play in the events of the Exodus.(22) But, without wishing to go into too much detail, Michael is not there made ...

230. Reviewing Velikovsky'S Venus And Mars Theories [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... was. Velikovsky dated the last flyby at 687 BCE.2 Velikovsky's support data were from ancient literature and occasionally from archaeology and natural history. Chief among his sources of ancient literature was the Bible. Unfortunately for his two new paradigms, he presented no astronomical tables, no graphs, no orbital sketches or diagrams, and no theory for celestial mechanics to support his hypotheses. Velikovsky didn't think in these terms, nor, apparently, did his close colleagues in 1950. This essay will subject both of Velikovsky's two hypotheses, or paradigms, to analysis by celestial mechanics. One of the more interesting aspects proposes there was a cometary tail belonging to the Jovian Venus. This cometary ...
