21. The Celestial Dynamics of "Worlds in Collision" [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Review Vol VI No 1-3 (1982) "The 1978 Glasgow Conference Proceedings" Home | Issue Contents The Celestial Dynamics of "Worlds in Collision"Dr Robert W. Bass I was recently invited by Dr Elizabeth Chesley Baity, author of a well-known synthesising summary of archaeoastronomy [1 ], to give a lecture on the stability of the solar system at a conference in Austria some year and a half from now; and in her letter of invitation she asked me whether I could give the talk without repeating myself (that is, without quoting my previous papers on the subject). Fortunately, Dr MacKie did not impose that stipulation upon me, so ...
22. From Myth to a Physical Model [Journals] [Aeon]
... Oct 1993) Home | Issue Contents From Myth to a Physical Model Dave Talbott Introduction In this article, the first of three parts, I take up these issues- General issues for catastrophists working in the Velikovskian tradition. What is the basis of our confidence in myth? Can it ever be proven that myth is a reflection of unusual celestial events? Evolution of a mythically-based model. A summary of recent changes in the model of the polar configuration, and a look at other aspects of the configuration on which little or no detail has been previously published. Introduction of Robert Grubaugh and a physical model of the polar configuration. Grubaugh has considerable professional experience with orbital dynamics through ...
23. The Saturn Thesis: Questions and Answers [Journals] [Aeon]
... ? I think there's a very good reason to care about myth, even though myth as a whole may seem to speak a language too obscure for rational, feet-on-the-ground folk. Myth is, I believe, a window to early human history, a more intensely dramatic period than we've realized. The myths have their roots in a time of celestial catastrophe, and more often than not the appearance of confusion results from viewing myth as something other than what it is. In the course of cultural evolution and scientific advance, we left behind the fabled "long ago," whose images seemed wholly out of touch with our own world. Yet my personal conviction is that ancient myth ...
24. Megalithic Astronomy and Catastrophism [Journals] [Pensee]
... Solar System,"June 16-19, 1974. "The dating of the megalithic observatories to the period from about 2000-1800 B.C . seems fairly secure and puts them firmly into the epoch preceding Velikovsky's major cataclysms of the 15th century B.C . In spite of this, the alignments so far identified do fit well with the present celestial system retrojected to the period concerned....... On the other hand..... the whole remarkable phenomenon of the relatively sudden appearance of standing stone sites- many of them clearly astronomical in function- as a well-defined episode in British pre-history could be neatly explained as the reaction to a natural disturbance in the celestial ...
... CD-Rom Home Canopy Skies of Ancient Man Celestial Records of the Orient Eden's Flaming Sword A Glance at Compartive Mythology Golden Age Canopy The Heavens and Earth of Prehistoric Man The Misread Record or The Deluge and its Cause Mythic Mountains The Ring of Truth The Heavens and Earth of Prehistoric Man Isaac N. Vail Part 1 – INTRODUCTION The Annular Theory claims that all planets develop along the same general lines. Consequent upon an igneous condition, a system of Saturn-like rings, composed largely of aqueous and mineral vapor, are formed about the planet's equator. Such a system of rings once surrounded the earth, and by their successive collapse produced great changes during the geologic period. Their remnants, ...
26. The Polar Sun [Books]
... -- III The Polar Sun Saturn's mythical history includes two themes which not only contradict the planet's visible appearance today, but seem to mock the canons of modern astronomy: Saturn, not the solar orb, was the authentic "sun" -god of ancient ritual. Throughout Saturn's reign this sun-planet remained fixed at the north celestial pole. These two themes, affirmed by the straightforward testimony of ancient sources, compose a global memory: in the beginning Saturn did not move on its present remote orbit, but ruled as the central sun around which the other heavenly bodies visually revolved. Of this tradition early man has left us evidence far too numerous to cover fully in this ...
27. The Milky Way [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon IV:4 (Apr 1996) Home | Issue Contents The Milky Way Ev Cochrane Ancient beliefs surrounding the celestial bodies continue to impact our daily lives. Astrological horoscopes adorn the leading papers and magazines, and at least one world leader- Ronald Reagan- is known to have planned the details of his itinerary in accordance with the portents of his wife's astrological chart, thereby imitating a long line of kings going back to the ancient Babylonians. As incredible as is the prospect of a modern president held pawn by the "science" of astrology, equally incredible is a central tenet of conventional archaeo-astronomy- that the myths and legends sur-rounding the various stars and constellations ...
... the firmament, the upper waters could not remain above without a second wall to hold them in at the sides and at the top. So a second vault above the vault of the firmament closes in, together with the firmament, a space" the space marked LL in his diagram. Instead, therefore, of Dr. Whitehouse s celestial ocean upheld by the firma ment above the sun, moon, and stars, our present interpreter gives us a celestial tank, situated somewhat below the sun, moon, and stars, but bottomed by the firmamental "vault of great solidity," and topped by a "second vault" of like character. For one I strongly ...
29. The Astronomical Basis of Egyptian Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Egyptian calendar of 360+ 5 days, adding up, of course, to 365 days. The second calendar is what one might call the seasonal calendar the "real" calendar if you like, which goes from Winter through Spring, through Summer and through Autumn. And so we start with a little basic astronomy, starting with the celestial sphere. Figure: 1. Celestial sphere for an observer in north latitude f . ATB is the path of a star from rising (a ), to transit (T ) and setting (B ) Figure 2. Celestial sphere showing the ecliptic, the yearly path of the Sun against the stellar background with dates when the Sun ...
30. Celestial fireworks [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2002:2 (Dec 2002) Home | Issue Contents Celestial fireworks mythopedia.info/slides.htm By Rens van de Sluij. A graphic model for an alien sky that inspired the myths and symbols of our forebears based on patterns in myth, ritual, and symbolism. Celestial fireworks' is a series of pictures that can serve as a model with which ancient mythology, ritual and symbolism can be understood. These pictures are based on a detailed reconstruction of patterns that pervade a universal lost' tradition. They illustrate a sequence of highly dramatic events that loomed over the heads of our ancestors and inspired them to create stories, sacred dramas ...
