251. ABC's of Astrophysics [Books] [de Grazia books]
... modernity in Orphism, which Chassapis was exhibiting at the same time. If the hymns had originated so early, though, they went to prove a uniformitarian history of the heavens. Incompetent to challenge Chassapis' readings, Deg could but question the definitiveness of the poetic lines, which seemed indeed vague, and the technique of retrojecting the present celestial motions unjustifiably. The Orphic Hymns, Chassapis also maintained, evidenced an early knowledge to lenses. This, too, rankled with Deg. He had worried over a mention of a lens-like object found in Ninevah's earliest levels, and had discussed the general question with Stecchini. If the Bronze Age peoples had been able to magnify the stars ...
252. Thoth Vol III, No. 14: Nov 1, 1999 [Journals] [Thoth]
... the nature of human origins, the Saturn model offers a radically different possibility- that the ancient languages arose with remarkable suddenness, as an effect of intensely experienced events, and with unified references in the sky. Unified references can only mean a unified substratum of language, no less significant than the unified substratum of the rites, myths, and celestial symbols to which language is so indebted. Moreover, the myths, rites, and symbols preserve countless nuances of the original experience, and together they offer a useful guide for exposing the underpinnings of language itself. A range of seemingly DIFFERENT meanings, connected to similar or identical roots, will reflect the things which human imagination saw in ...
253. Star Words [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... - European languages. Virtually ALL are related, but in many cases the relationships will not be evident to the experts because these experts remain unaware of the archetype around which entire complexes of meanings arose. The source of the archetype was in the sky, but it is not there now, and the experts have not even suspected that a celestial reference might have existed- once- which could unify the picture completely. So they search about "down here," wrestling with concepts that cannot (on their own, in the absence of the celestial reference) be reconciled. They do not believe that "cataSTRophe" has anything to do with "STaR" because it is known ...
254. The Cosmic Winter by Victor Clube and Bill Napier [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Beta Taurid event despite the fact that, on their own admission, the alleged portents occurred earlier in the year than the June raid of the Norsemen, and the perhaps fatal objection that the June Taurids, being a daytime shower, provide no visible display . Nor do Frankish writers, apparently, corroborate the Chronicle concerning the celestial realm: Alcuin of York, who travelled between Northern England and France, wrote at the court of Charlemagne, and speaks only of mundane matters . There was certainly a tendency in those days to project mundane catastrophe onto the celestial screen: a comet was invented and alleged to have foreshadowed the death of Charlemagne in 814 ...
255. "Proofs" of the Stability of the Solar System [Journals] [Pensee]
... distances. ' Indeed, so far as the initial arguments go, there seems to be no reason why some of the bodies should not have actually interchanged their mean distances." At this point, it appears possible to proceed in either of two manners: (1 ) One could dogmatically assert that the greatest contemporary masters of mathematically rigorous celestial mechanics (following Poincaré, Moulton, G. D. Birkhoff, Liapunov, Wintner, Siegel, Kolmogorov, Arnol'd and Moser) have usually totally ignored the line of investigation discussed above, indicating by studied silence that they place no credence in the theorems based on so-called secular perturbation theory and general perturbation theory. In fact, the ...
256. Planetary Observations of the T'ang [Articles]
... attend this conference-for allowing me to make this presentation. My topic will focus on planetary observations made during the T'ang dynasty of China from the years 618 through 906 AD. But before delving into these observations, I'd like to explain why I've researched this subject. As is well known here, Velikovsky put a chronological cap on his research into celestial anomalies. The cap was the year 687 B.C .E . Nevertheless, I had found data that led me to believe that what Velikovsky had found within a certain historical period, was neither temporally, nor, as structurally limited as his scenario had become. Indeed, more recent anomalous material beyond Velikovsky' s time limit ...

258. Conclusion: Entropy [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... books that have debunked most of the evidence of the Big Bang theory, 322 as well as the present book which superficially resembles that theory, that theory dominates. This new hypothesis makes a fundamental claim that no other theory makes or follows in any detail the route taken by this author, namely that electromagnetism is the fundamental counter force in celestial space to gravity and governs a host of celestial phenomena. Recently, new evidence was presented that this researcher claims is in full harmony with my motion theory. According to Charles Seife, "Gravity may not be working as advertized. Spacecraft hurtling through the solar system have been behaving so bizarrely that some scientists wonder whether our theories of ...
259. Quartered At Yale. File II (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... would be served by summarizing here Velikovsky's "evidence" for the series of cosmic catastrophes that he supposes to have occurred between 1500 and 700 B.C . The crucial point is that Velikovsky, in effect, repudiates his earlier rejection of Newton: "The theory of cosmic catastrophe can, if required to do so, conform with the celestial mechanics of Newton" (Worlds in Collision, p. 384). But the readers of the book are spared the realization that its author ever professed belief in what he called "the empiric evidences of the fallacy of the law of gravitation" (Cosmos Without Gravitation, p. 11).(3 ) We look in ...
260. Minds in Chaos [Books] [de Grazia books]
... records of man - records ranging from unequivocal statements in written documents, through remembrances expressed in myth and legend, to mute archaeological evidence in the form of obsolete calendars and sundials - and his examination of geological and paleontological reports from all parts of the globe led him to conclude that modern man's snug little world, set in a framework of celestial harmony and imperceptible evolution, is but an illusion. Velikovsky's reappraisal of world history ravages established doctrine in disciplines from astronomy to psychology: universal gravitation of masses is not the only force governing celestial motions-electromagnetic force must also play important roles; enigmatic breaks in the geological record denote, not interminable ages of languorous erosion and deposition gently ...
