421. The Hermes Connection [Journals] [Aeon]
... the Polar Column and a clearing of the mists, exposing the night sky for the first time with all its fearful darkness. The impression of the Polar Column captured the imagination of ancient civilizations and left its imprimatur on their creative art forms and literature. To be sure, these impressions are augmented and rivalled by the circular form of the Celestial Sea, symbolized by the mandala, but a discussion of the mandala as such is beyond the general purview of this essay. The influence of the Polar Column was so subliminal that it affected the psychological, and hence the sociological, progress of these ancient civilizations. It was the Axis Mundi- the central core- about which the ...
422. "Let There Be Light" - A Criticism [Journals] [Kronos]
... god and one of the world's worst destructions was transmogrified into a credo of genetic Creation" (Ibid., p. 49). A different and tenable interpretation can be derived from the same data Cardona cites. I offer the following considerations: 1) According to Cardona, a consistent motif in Creation myth is the formation of a Celestial, Cosmic or Primordial Egg that eventually "broke into two halves" or "divided in two" (" Dividing in two" is unexplained) and gave forth a tremendous light. Cardona says Saturn, then possibly closer to Earth and with greater polar flattening than now, was the object myth calls the Cosmic Egg. This term ...
423. A Reviewer At The Stake. File II (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... From "Stargazers and Gravediggers" © 1983 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents A Reviewer At The Stake IN THE CELESTIAL judgment hall the reviewer was called before the throne and told: "All that the author hath is in thy power; only do not change his words." This is the only protection left to authors against their reviewers. Nails and teeth or hooves and horns the reviewer may use against the author, but he is not allowed to change the author's words. The author usually does not claim infallibility, and by publishing a book, he ties himself to the stake, to receive as many blows as his judge-executioner may see fit to ...
424. NASA Astrophysics Data System Abstracts [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... p.1044. Australian Aboriginal legends about the "Dreamtime," the time before the creation of the present world are rich in references to the heavens. In contrast, present-day Aboriginals have stated to anthropologists that most of the rock art that does not depict animals, plants, or humans is "abstract," with little mention of celestial significance, with the exception of a few Morning Star and comet depictions. A recent visit to several sites and a survey of published samples of rock art at other sites turned up a number of depictions of animals which appear to relate to Dreamtime legends involving celestial groupings. In addition, at two sites, there are suggestive alignments in ...
425. Is Venus' Heat Decreasing? [Journals] [Pensee]
... (May 1972) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered I" Home | Issue Contents Is Venus' Heat Decreasing?Immanuel Velikovsky Not quite six years ago, on a summer day in 1966, 1 had an unannounced visit by two young men, in their teens. They brought me the news that I was selected the first honorary member of the Celestial Observer Society, composed of high school and college amateur astronomer-observers of New York City, with quarters at the Brooklyn Technological Institute. The Society publishes a mimeographed monthly magazine. The two delegates made their way from Brooklyn to Princeton, N.J ., on bicycles- a distance of 60 miles. It was my first (and still ...
426. Venus and Mars [Books] [de Grazia books]
... 800 years of this period. Venus had hundreds of names and identities, many of them secret, sacred, and obfuscated. For example, the Hebrew word "shakris" means the Evening Star, Morning Star, to sacrifice, to kill something, to make sacred. Logically, one initially seeks information about the first appearance of these celestial bodies; when were they born? In the case of Venus, legends of the Near East, Greece, Rome, the Teutons, the Hindus, and the Meso-Americans seem to speak of a special time of birth of a deity with a homologous syndrome of traits (Velikovsky, 1950). Although the name "Venus" may ...
427. Compelling Insights: Concluded in Sorrow [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... former bicameral mind. Planetary catastrophism does not play a role in Jayne's theory. Put thus simply, the incompatibility of the theories involved should be more than evident. To Derek, the idea that the gods could have been heard' by man's former bicameral mind did not necessarily negate the gods' identity with the planets and/or other celestial manifestations. In other words, while the deities could have originated as planets and/or auroral displays, man could still have heard' them talking directly to him through the machinations of his bicameral mind. But while this could have been possible, it must be remembered that Jaynes' theory was partly, if not wholly, formulated ...
428. The Shadow Of Death. Ch.4 Poets And Visionaries (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... From "Mankind in Amnesia" © 1982 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Shadow Of Death Visions of the world on a collision course with a flaming body growing ever larger and more menacing, or phantasmagorias of celestial battle, all to some degree remindful of the events witnessed by overawed humanity about to be decimated- such visions reappeared in revelations of persons in ecstasy, in poetry of exalted lyricists, in dreams and nightmares of ordinary men. The high waves rising precipitously and then crashing down; the all-levelling earth-shocks; the fire rain descending from space; the flaming mountains, bursting when swept by continent-invading tides; the waves carrying the fragments to other mountain ...
429. Baal Zevuv (Beelzebub), Part 1 Venus Ch.9 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... , Seth, Lucifer, name equivalents of Satan. It was also Baal of the Canaanites and of the Northern Kingdom of the Ten Tribes, the god hated by the biblical prophets, also Beelzebub or Baal Zevuv, or Baal of the fly. In the Pahlavi text of the Iranian book, the Bundahis, describing the catastrophes caused by celestial bodies, it is written that at the close of one of the world ages "the evil spirit [Ahriman] went toward the luminaries." "He stood upon one-third of the inside of the sky, and he sprang, like a snake, out of the sky down to the earth." It was the day of ...
430. Contributors [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. I No. 3 (Fall 1975) Home | Issue Contents Contributors Robert W. Bass (Ph.D ., Johns Hopkins), Rhodes Scholar, took his doctorate in 1955 under the late Aurel Wintner- then the world's leading authority on celestial mechanics. He undertook three years of post-doctoral research in nonlinear mechanics at Princeton under National Medal of Science winner, Solomon Lefschetz. In the late Fifties he developed a new principle in celestial mechanics which not only gives a dynamical explanation for Bode's law but, as shown in 1972 by M. Ovenden, predicts current planetary distances with an average inaccuracy of less than one percent. Currently Dr. ...
