241. The Aubrey Holes Of Stonehenge [Journals] [Kronos]
... have formed an effective azimuth circle by relating the position of the rising sun, as it came up over the bank, to the nearest hole the azimuth value of which would be known. In navigation, the bearing of a distant object is determined in just this manner. Since the Aubrey holes form a complete circle, azimuths of rising celestial bodies could have been observed and calculated at any point on the horizon. When viewed from above, the Aubrey holes look strikingly like the marker points of a dial. It has been established that the Heel Stone, as viewed from the center of the Aubrey Circle, quite closely marks the point of sunrise on the first day of ...
242. The Catastrophic Substructure of Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra (Part I) [Journals] [Kronos]
... prominent in the skies and so threatening, are now safely distant, in fixed orbits, presenting no living danger to the Earth, and so they too can be safely venerated. If one has read Velikovsky, the general action in Antony and Cleopatra is clearly catastrophic, and it is on this basis that I wish to analyze the corresponding celestial catastrophic imagery which Shakespeare has used to characterize the lovers at every important stage of their story's development. Once they are in love, Antony's proximity or distance directly affects Cleopatra's brilliance, 1.1 .9-10. Their attraction takes them beyond all established bounds, to find out new heaven, new earth, 1.1 .17 ...
243. Catastrophe and Divine Fires [Books] [de Grazia books]
... depended upon the construction of the Tabernacle, sanctuary of Yahweh, "for when the sanctuary had been erected, the world stood firmly founded, whereas until then it had always been swaying hither and thither." If, as now seems probable, the Earth suffered a moderate tilt at the climax of the Exodus, a celestial unsteadiness would be perceived, both in the general turbulence and in the erratic movements of the stars and heavenly bodies. And one can be sure that in the retelling, if not in actuality, the earthly and heavenly climaxes would be brought together for maximum effect and symbolism. Perhaps the new awareness came in intervals of light in darkness ...
244. The Eye Goddess [Journals] [Aeon]
... [4 ] Erman offered a similar opinion: "Although this name, House of Horus, abode of the sun god, directly and unequivocally designates her as the sky..." [5 ] Yet it can be shown that Hathor has nothing whatsoever to do with the Sun. That the Egyptian goddess was originally identified with another celestial body altogether is conformed by a survey of the numerous Coffin Text passages invoking the goddess. There Hathor is clearly distinguished from Re, although she is described as shining forth in the immediate vicinity of Re: "I indeed have prepared a path to the place where Re is, to the place where Hathor is." [6 ...
245. The Poem of Erra [Journals] [Aeon]
... come down to us from ancient times, the Poem of Erra was discovered in the nineteenth century, and its broad diffusion throughout Mesopotamia is suggestive of the high esteem in which the poem was held. (2 ) The subject of the poem is Erra's attack upon Marduk, king of the gods, and his oppression of Suanna, the celestial city of Marduk. (3 ) Erra's dire intentions are made known early in the poem: "I will make prince Marduk wrathful: I will cause him to rise from his seat and I will fell the men." (4 ) Later in the poem Erra makes good on his threat. Erra's revolt not only causes Marduk ...
246. Venus in Ancient Myth and Language: Part Two [Journals] [Aeon]
... cord", or "noose" was cited as an example of this phenomenon, vinculum being derived from the word vincio, "to bind", "to tie round", "to surround". The mythology of the planet Venus, according to the reconstruction offered by Talbott and myself, appears to reflect a series of cataclysmic celestial events, one of which involved a comet-like Venus. (1 ) In this particular our reconstruction offers support for the well-known theory of Immanuel Velikovsky, who, in Worlds in Collision, first proposed the idea that Venus once assumed a comet-like form. Our theory differs from Velikovsky's, however, in that it places Venus' cometary phase ...
247. Can Worlds Collide? [Journals] [Kronos]
... " he was unconsciously trying to acknowledge him as a "Champion Philosopher".] [* ** Quoted e.g . by Graham Chedd in New Scientist, vol. 61 (1974), No. 888, p. 625.] Actually I believe that those astronomers who are not trained specialists in the mathematical aspects of celestial mechanics are correctly quoting received majority opinion about planetary dynamics and are quite sincere in doubting that either Venus or Mars can have had Earth crossing orbits within astronomically recent time; the problem, as I see it, is that there has been an unfortunate divergence in communication since about 1899 between mathematicians who study the problem rigorously and between " ...
248. De Grazian Discography (Reviewed) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . Most of them have been reviewed or otherwise acknowledged in SIS publications [1 ]. If I had to single out some personal favourites, I would select 3: The Divine Succession, God's Fire and Cosmic Heretics. In the first, de Grazia examines the origin of religion - still humanity's dominant motivating force. At times when catastrophic celestial events, the wars of the gods', take place .. .'... when great events are common and men are shaken by them, the gods are implied, even visualized... the age becomes confirmed as religious. The more intense, pervasive, and frequent the experiences, the more religious the age ...
249. The Female Star [Journals] [Aeon]
... appears without the divine determinative, although exceptions do occur. In the subsequent period, the sign is more often than not preceded by a divine determinative, the latter closely resembling a modern asterisk.  Inasmuch as the cuneiform determinative for "god" features an eight-pointed star, it stands to reason that Inanna was identified with a celestial body already in archaic Uruk. Indeed, Szarzynska notes that this particular determinative seems to have been reserved for astral deities in the earliest period: "In the most archaic period the determinative dingir was associated with astral deities only."  It is Szarzynska's opinion that the beginning of the cult of astral deities reaches back to ...
250. New Frontiers on the Stability of the Solar System [Articles]
... . He also appeared in the HORIZON programme about Velikovsky. That is when he first came to the notice of the SIS, and he attended the Glasgow conference at which he gave two papers, one I think supporting Velikovsky's identification of Sothis as Venus and one on the stability of the Solar System. He is an internationally renowned expert on celestial mechanics, and that is the theme of his talk today, so now I hand you over to Dr. Roy. Professor Archie Roy: Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen. It must be now about thirty years ago when Velikovsky first published a book which really caused a terrible upheaval in the academic world, as we all ...
