... From: Kronos Vol. X No. 2 (Winter 1985) Home | Issue Contents The Nature and Origin of Comets and the Evolution of Celestial Bodies (Part III)J. M. McCanney Copyright (c ) 1981 & 1984 by J. M. McCanney PREFACE TO PART III Parts I and II of this paper (KRONOS IX:1 , Fall 1983 & KRONOS IX:3 , Summer 1984) introduced new concepts describing cometary behavior and solar system evolution. A number of basic theoretical results followed from the realization that there is an excess current of positive charge in the solar wind which emanates from the Sun. These included: 1) the formation of ...

43. Ancient Astronomy and Celestial Divination [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:1 (May 2000) Home | Issue Contents Ancient Astronomy and Celestial Divination Kronia List, 08 Mar 2000 Ancient Astronomy and Celestial Divination. A book by N. M. Swerdlow (ed.) In the ancient world, the collection and study of celestial phenomena and the interpretation of their prophetic significance, especially as applied to kings and nations, were closely related sciences carried out by the same scholars. Both ancient sources and modern research agree that astronomy and celestial divination arose in Babylon. Only in the late nineteenth century, however, did scholars begin to identify and decipher the original Babylonian sources, and the process of understanding those ...

... go further what this horizon really is, and for this some diagrams are necessary. The horizon of any place is the circle which bounds our view of the earth's surface, along which the land (or sea) and sky appear to meet. We have to consider the relation of the horizon of any place to the apparent movements of celestial bodies at that place. We know, by means of the demonstration afforded by Foucault's pendulum, that the earth rotates on its axis, but this idea was, of course, quite foreign to these early peoples. Since the earth rotates with stars, infinitely removed, surrounding it on all sides, the apparent movements of the stars ...

45. The Spring Of Ares [Journals] [Kronos]
... assumption that Kadmos was a mortal. But if, as I have suggested.(1a) Kadmos was originally a Theban god analogous to Dionysus, who was also associated with Ares, the added association of Kadmos with the same Ares raises fundamental questions concerning the origins of Greek religion and myth.(9 ) That Ares was originally a celestial body is suggested by a Homeric hymn in which the god is described as a fiery sphere among the planets.(3 ) This fiery nature links Ares to Mars, described as the fiery planet par excellence in both Babylonian and Greek astronomy. And, in fact, this identification was made by the Greeks themselves as early as the ...

48. The Bedrock of Myth [Articles]
... not necessary to presume that this origin has a unity in time. The design need consist only of the very simplest set of parts from which the metaphors may readily be obtained. Identification of gods with planets plants obstructively false clues along the trail of retrospective tracing. One of the absurdities to which these false clues can lead is the north celestial polar Saturn. The latter is thoroughly weighed and found thoroughly wanting in the essay "The Unworkable Polar Saturn" [published with revised title in Aeon 1:3 , CLE], in terms of celestial mechanics, geophysics, palaeoclimatology, and palaozoogeography. Those who have been regarding the polar Saturn as if it had been a reality ...

... literature and art from the ancient Near East and, while necessarily technical in nature, it is hoped that it will serve as a launching pad for a radical reinterpretation of ancient cosmology in general. (Fig. 1) Cylinder seal impression showing Shamash rising over the twin-peaked mountain. Simply stated, it can be shown that descriptions of the celestial whereabouts and stereotypical behavior of the ancient sun-god (Utu, Shamash), Venus (Inanna, Ishtar), and Mars (Nergal), show the respective celestial bodies in positions which are impossible given the current arrangement of the Solar System. Such anomalies have long posed problems of interpretation for translators of the ancient texts, the latter ...

50. On the Nature of Cometary Symbolism [Journals] [Kronos]
... even acknowledge, any such association, it is possible to reconstruct the history and behavior of the prehistoric comet down to many remarkable details, including its specific relationship to the Saturnian band. Drawing upon wide-ranging and colorful images, the myths tell of a comet-like body issuing in serpentine fashion from the sun god, then - after a period of celestial upheaval - wrapping itself around the god to form an enclosure. Mythically, the body of the celestial "serpent" is so closely associated with the circular dwelling of the Saturn-sun as to suggest a crucial symbolic identity: the "tail" of the Venus-comet and the band of the enclosed sun are, if not mythologically synonymous, at ...
