361. Variations on a Theme of Philolaos [Journals] [Kronos]
... can hardly be explained sufficiently by our ten fingers and ten toes. A powerful tradition must have been partial to ten. The Pythagorean arguments about ten, based on music and the tetractys and so on, seem to have been reinforcements of an established position, rather than reasons for an initial stance. Could it be that the number of celestial bodies was once equal to ten? Could it be that the Central Fire and the Counter-Earth were ever empirical facts, not just inventions of somebody playing number games? That would make a lot more sense than that the Pythagoreans should have converted the number of their fingers and the number of their toes into a cosmic principle! It is ...
362. Thoth Vol II, No. 12: July 31, 1998 [Journals] [Thoth]
... to the left), and note the image on the top of the page. Though a snapshot of this sort cannot convey the more dynamic components of the story - including both stable and unstable phases of an evolving configuration - it is a useful starting point for an illustration of methodology. Imagine those planetary forms towering above us; three celestial spheres of much different sizes, juxtaposed in the sky, very close to the Earth. The largest of the spheres is the planet Saturn prior to acquisition of any rings. Within that sphere (i .e ., in front of Saturn) appears a much smaller, highly luminous orb, the planet Venus, from which brilliant ...
363. Antiquated Textbooks: Redesigning the Solar System [Journals] [Aeon]
... is understandable, but also to correct the many misconceptions concerning the Solar System that astronomers insist in stubbornly adhering to. Earth The next planet in our journey away from the Sun is our own beloved Earth. Even when we thought we knew it so well, it, too, failed to escape being redesigned in the new scheme of the celestial atlas. The discovery of the Van Allen Belt and the greater extent of Earth's magnetosphere are now history. Even so, I would like to repeat a story told by Ley concerning this. When a physicist friend of his- or so he says- informed him of the discovery of the Van Allen Belt via long distance phone call ...
364. Jerusalem -- City of Venus [Journals] [Kronos]
... ... From this source, and this source alone, there can be no doubt came the extreme unction' of the Papacy. . ." (38) If Ba'al-shamem were indeed "Lord of Oil" and Venus, one would hope for some evidence that could simultaneously support both the divine epithet as well as the highly specific celestial identification. In point of fact, there appears to be considerable evidence. In Worlds in Collision, Velikovsky devotes whole sections to a discussion of "star oil" and a heavenly source for petroleum, ambrosia, nectar, and ointment;(39) and that extra-terrestrial source was implicitly Venus. The significance of oil or ointment in ...
365. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Christianity certainly borrowed from other contemporary religions to make itself more acceptable, but are the Three kings' Bhuddists by any chance? Three high-ranking Lamas are still sent to find the new' Bhudda at his birth!! They also bring gifts' - but not gold, frankincense or myrhh! (His birth is also foretold to them by celestial conformations. The three kings of present Christianity followed the star' that came to rest right over the place where Jesus lay'. In all probability they were astronomers/priests who had calculated where the conjunction of Jupiter, Mars and Venus would culminate and, in arriving in Jerusalem, were (apparently) only 5 miles out! ...
366. VELIKOVSKY AND OEDIPUS [Journals] [Aeon]
... the historical personages behind the Oedipus myth. Indeed, it was while pursuing research inspired by Velikovsky's novel ideas with regard to the recent history of the solar system that I was led to the conclusion that the myth of Oedipus had virtually nothing to do with palatial intrigue at the human level; rather, it appeared to have been inspired by celestial events. This is more than a little ironic, of course, since it was Velikovsky who first claimed that mythology could be viewed as a reflection of planetary upheaval. THE CONSTRAINTS OF TIME A major stumbling block in the way of Velikovsky's thesis concerning Oedipus and Akhnaton, in my opinion, is one of time. Here I refer ...
367. Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... . Readers are treated to further implications of the Saturnian Polar Configuration and relevant mythological identifications. The articles by Cardona are interestingly autobiographical and illustrate the development of this thought over the years. If there is an overriding theme or message from these perennially exciting, informative and insightful writers it is that the mythological record contains the undeniable facts of our celestial history and that maintaining faithfulness to these facts is more important than any retrospective analysis of what is and what is not possible according to current scientific fashions. Biology James Strickling presents a useful assessment of the Darwinian hypothesis in issue No.3 and demonstrates the unacceptability of natural selection and speciation according to the conventional principles of uniformitarian theory. ...
368. The Shadow Of Death, Part 1 Venus Ch.6 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... ruined world which was lighted up at intervals only by frightful conflagrations, revealing the full horror of their situation to the small number of human beings that had escaped from these calamities."(6 ) "Following the cataclysm caused by the waters, the author of the Codex Chimalpopoca, in his history of the suns, shows us terrifying celestial phenomena, twice followed by darkness that covered the face of the earth, in one instance for a period of twenty-five years." "This fact is mentioned in the Codex Chimalpopoca and in most of the traditions of Mexico."(7 ) Gómara, the Spaniard who came to the Western Hemisphere in the middle of the sixteenth ...
369. Magnetism and Axial Tilts [Books] [de Grazia books]
... this enthusiastic age of magnetic pole discovery is the belief that the discovery of a new magnetic pole means that a new geographic pole has been discovered. If so, and if what is being discovered are true magnetic reversals, the Earth would have suffered thousands of devastations. A shift in a true geographic pole (as opposed to a purely celestial or sidereal tilt) must involve a shift in the axis of rotation, the worst kind of disaster. Apparently some geologists are runaway catastrophists as long as they can run on free time long past. Munk's title, "Polar Wandering: A Marathon of Errors," deserves sober thought. The significance of this chaos ...
370. Ninsianna And Ramesside Star Observations [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1986 No 1 (Jul 1986) Home | Issue Contents Ninsianna And Ramesside Star Observations Michael G.Reade Comparison of the Egyptian Ramesside Star tables with the Babylonian (Ammizaduga) Venus tablets suggests that both relate to the same celestial disturbance. Integration of the information recorded on both leads to recognition of a discontinuity in the precession of the equinoxes of about 2 months (= 60 displacement in longitude of the vernal equinox) and a suggestion as to how 4 and 8 year festival' cycles could have originated. In PEOPLES OF THE SEA, footnote No.3 on p.236, Dr Velikovsky cites the most modern figure for the ...
