381. The Coming Cosmic Debate in the Sciences and Humanities: Revolutionary Vs. Evolutionary Primevology [Articles]
... addition, archaeology has disclosed periods of total and simultaneous devastation of existing civilizations in areas stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to China, and from Canada to Peru. Wherever symbolic and linguistic evidence is available, and usually also where only oral traditions are preserved, the catastrophes suffered on Earth and by humanity were attributed by humans to changes in the celestial system and particularly to the planets Ouranos (now transmutated beyond ready identification) , Saturn, Jupiter , Apollo (also trans-mutated) , Mercury, Venus, and Mars. The latest catastrophes are associated with the erratic and destructive behaviour of Mars in the years 776 to 687 B.C ., ending that is, 2661 years ago ...
382. Discussion [Journals] [Aeon]
... Ellenberger cannot use the argument of the Great Bear constellation in refuting the possibility of past terrestrial inversions- and it behooves him to understand the arguments offered by others before he criticizes what he is not willing to accept. IV It is highly unfair for Ellenberger to accuse KRONOS of not having wanted to publish Roger Ashton's paper, "The Fabulous Celestial Polar Saturn," without knowing the full details of what really transpired. (26) During Ashton's short association with KRONOS, I invariably acted as a mediator between him and Lewis Greenberg, the Editor-in-Chief, and not only do I know exactly what took place, I can back it all up with the relevant documents still in my ...
383. Forum [Journals] [Aeon]
... and ultraviolet wavelengths. Under such illumination, even grass and tree leaves might have appeared black. And, to be sure, if we were to pay attention to the mytho-historical record, Earth was "greened" at a later time. But even here I must advise caution since the mythological "greening" of Earth might have been a celestial, rather than a terrestrial, phenomenon- unless it was both. As for what caused the "darkness" in which Earth was engulfed prior to the "shedding of the light," Twose offers a novel theory in that the Solar System would have been traveling through a Bok globule. These globules, named after Bart J. ...
384. The Polar Column: A Physical Model of Myth [Journals] [Aeon]
... ladder; an extension of the shimmering World Mountain- the Axis Mundi; as a land of fire and ice, and as a cosmic tree whose "ornaments" sparkled brightly in the mists which surrounded it- the prototype and eponym of our latter-day Christmas Tree. To the observers in the Orient it was the magnificent phallic lingam penetrating the celestial yoni, cosmically wrapped in a yin and yang embrace. It was many things to many peoples, but the symbolisms were unquestionably identical. The Vortex Figure 1 The two principal planets in the plerosphere can be likened to an enormous dumbbell (Fig. 1). In this hypothetical case, where both bodies were essentially sharing the same ...

386. Earth-Venus Contacts in the Late 3rd Millennium BC? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... came (back) drunken , without having perceived mankind."  Discussion The first notable feature of this myth is that the deity operates in the terrestrial sphere. Hathor destroys mankind in the desert, i.e . on Earth, and yet she was known to the Egyptians during the Old Kingdom as the celestial cow . I have commented on this combination of the astral and yet terrestrial elsewhere, in relation to Inanna in the text of "Nin-me-sar-ra" . In my opinion the astral and yet terrestrial is a feature unique to the Venus goddesses, and it serves to reinforce my contention that the goddesses Inanna and ...
387. The Catastrophic Substructure of the Samson & Delilah Myth [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... settled state as regards the position of the sea and land and the resulting renewal of flora and fauna. A major feature of the Hebrew form of these mythological themes is the way in which everything is brought down to earth so to speak. The fantastic heroes of pagan mythologies become comparatively sober men in the Bible. Events which are clearly celestial or zodiacal in the mythologies of Egypt, Greece and Sumeria become earthbound and attached to seemingly historical characters in the biblical counterparts to these stories. Robert Graves (1 ) shows how the Jewish midrash described Abraham as seventy times the height of a normal man with each of his steps measuring three or four miles. Saul's general Abner was ...
388. Time, Electricity and Quantavolution [Books] [de Grazia books]
... were neither primitive nor naive, an who were also reporting the ideas of other experts of hundreds and thousands of years before them, affirm that the bodies of the Solar System and the stars changed their behavior and their motions. These men were cognizant of, and disciplined by, religious systems that were sky-obsessed, and which moved continually between celestial behavior and mundane behavior, in supreme efforts to let happen on Earth what happened in Heaven, and vice versa. As we have reviewed their ideas and reports, coupled with evidence emerging from legends and archaeological excavations, we found reason to think that they might be living in a world that was strikingly different from our own and that ...

... geology and paleontology against astronomy. I found that my thesis can be sustained." Antiquated Textbooks That thesis came under severe attack in 1950; but today, he observed, it is not his book, but the textbooks that "are mostly outmoded. Those of 1950 are antiquated." An astronomer could write during the 1950's that the celestial bodies "could not possibly possess electrostatic charges enough to produce any of the [observed] effects on motion within the solar system." "But how," Velikovsky asked the physicists and astronomers present, "could the satellites of Jupiter, plowing through the intense Jovian magnetosphere, do so without any observable effect? Or how can ...
390. The Archangels, Part 2 Mars Ch.5 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... destroyed the Assyrian army. Gabriel is the angel appointed over fire; he is also, according to Origen,8 the angel of war. Thus we again recognize in him Mars-Nergal. The rabbinical tradition says that the Assyrians of the host of Sennacherib, before they died, were permitted by Ga briel to hear "the song of the celestials," which can be interpreted as the sound caused by a close approach of the planet. The words of Isaiah (33:3 ), "at the noise of the tumult [hamon] the people fled," should, according to the Jewish tradition as rela ted by Jerome, refer to Gabriel, Hamon being another ...
