32. ...more Myths Monuments and Mnemonics: A Photographic Tour of Egyptian Antiquities [Journals] [Horus]
... Cheops] itself has over six million tons of stone blocks, the smallest of which is a little under two tons. Its massive foundation rests on and is embedded in bedrock, and the four sides are aligned almost perfectly with the cardinal points. A narrow inclined passageway built into the North quadrant is generally assumed to have aimed at the celestial pole and, according to one ancient Greek historian, the dimensions of the pyramid were related to its latitude. According to another, there once were inscriptions on its surface. Though its gold-covered capstone is missing, we still can imagine the brilliant beacon created when it reflected the Sun. Not far away the step-pyramid of Zoser, the ...
33. The Genie Of The Pivot [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. X No. 1 (Fall 1984) Home | Issue Contents The Genie Of The Pivot Roger Ashton Copyright (c ) 1984 by Roger Ashton ABSTRACT: Investigation of the links between gods and planets suggests a connection between Saturn and the Celestial Pole. This can be inferred from Greek and Roman myths. The same can be repeatedly extracted from materials included in the later compendia of Hindu myths. Sufficient evidence of this sort can be amassed to warrant serious consideration of the proposition that Saturn at the Celestial Pole was the central theme of myth many millennia ago. The correctness of this reconstruction of myth depends upon the total context of mythical metaphors, symbols ...
34. The Planetary Order Revealed in The Book of the Secrets of Enoch [Journals] [Horus]
... that circle does not indicate a missing or unlisted planet. In the following set of tabulations I have attempted an analysis, based on an identification of the named "stars", and on certain planetary aspects, to determine any plausible order in the list as given. In the 1st column of Table I are listed the names of the celestial bodies as they appear in the book. Column 2 is a matching list giving the commonly accepted modern names of those bodies. In columns 3, 4, 5 and 6, employing certain physical criteria, I have numerically ranked the five planets that are listed in column 2 in the attempt to uncover whatever planetary order the author may ...
35. Gyroscopic Precession and Celestial Axis Displacement [Journals] [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 3 No 3: (Fall 1973) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered V" Home | Issue Contents Gyroscopic Precession and Celestial Axis Displacement C. S. Sherrerd Forum Mr. Sherrerd is a statistical data analyst with a background in communications engineering and large-scale computer applications. Many readers of Velikovsky's writings and associated papers perhaps find it very difficult to accept the historical reports of prolonged periods of daylight or darkness, as if "the sun stood still," or as if temporary but very severe perturbations occurred in the rotation of the earth about its polar axis. One would think intuitively at first glance, that such occurrences would require impossibly large angular decelerating and ...
36. When Venus Was A Comet [Journals] [Kronos]
... of history's most famous comet, that named after Edmund Halley. In anticipation of this rare event, a number of books were rushed into print; ocean cruises were organized intent on optimum viewing, while hundreds of "souvenirs" flooded the market. A casual observer of the Halley phenomenon might well wonder why all this fuss over a "celestial snowball". Aside from the obvious scientific importance of Halley's visit, the fact is that mankind has always been fascinated by the appearance of comets, especially one as reputable as Halley's. The occasion also served as a powerful reminder of the fundamental mystery of the Cosmos about us, and of human nature as well. The reader need ...

38. The Nature and Origin of Comets and the Evolution of Celestial Bodies (Part II) [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. IX No. 3 (Summer 1984) Home | Issue Contents The Nature and Origin of Comets and the Evolution of Celestial Bodies (Part II)J. M. McCanney Copyright (c ) 1981 & 1984 by J. M. McCanney PREFACE TO PART II Part I (KRONOS IX:1 , Fall 1983, pp. 17-39) presented critiques of the ice ball comet model (IBCM) and nebular collapse theory of the origin of the solar system (OSS) and argued that these "accepted" theories fall short of explaining numerous observed phenomena. Part I also introduced a new theory for comet behavior and solar system evolution based on ...
39. The Unworkable Polar Saturn [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon I:3 (1988) Home | Issue Contents The Unworkable Polar Saturn Roger Ashton 1. Saturn at the North Celestial Pole As if a rational process of thinking accounted for the content of folklore and myth, efforts to trace it all back to an identifiable origin, starting particularly with de Santillana's and von Dechend's Hamlet's Mill, have tended to uncover origins in a celestial context. Pursuing the course of the earlier Worlds in Collision, by Immanuel Velikovsky, and looking further backwards, such writers as David N. Talbott, Dwardu Cardona and others have produced several divergent versions of planetarily reconstructed myth in which Saturn is situated at the Earth's north celestial pole. ...
40. From Myth to Physical Model [Articles]
... From Myth to Physical Model Dave Talbott Every catastrophist following a Velikovskian approach to myth must continually ask himself: how seriously do I believe that myth can illuminate an unknown past? The question will pursue the catastrophist relentlessly because his theoretical approach is challenged every time he wonders if an extraordinary celestial phenomenon-some possibility yet to be admitted by mainstream science-might explain a particular form or episode of myth. And the path he has chosen leaves little room for compromise. Logic does not permit one to pick and choose which unusual mythical themes one will take seriously. If myth has a reference in spectacular natural events, then no well-established mythical theme can be ignored. Sidestepping various themes in order to ...
