51. The Mythical History of the Comet Venus (Part I) [Journals] [Aeon]
... : Eye of the sun god Ascending heart or soul of a dying god or king Dove, pigeon, partridge, etc. Maiden daughter of a great king Love goddess Bearded goddess Sidelock of the sun World-devouring hag Raging serpent Lamenting goddess Spinning and weaving goddesb Goddess of fate "Moon" goddess (i .e ., goddess of a celestial crescent) Cow goddess Ship of the sun Sky-band Queen or mistress of the mountain. The dilemma for conventional interpretation is obvious: in seeking to account for these dominant motifs, the theorists must resort to a series of separate and unconnected conjectures. The model under discussion, however, implies that the actual history of the planet, though ...
52. When Earth Was Not Yet Created: An Account of Sumerian Cosmogony [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Saturn, and the heliocentric nature of our solar system. Pertinent to these conclusions is the depiction of a solar system on a cylinder seal, VA.243 (Fig. 1). It will be shown that Enuma elish is based on plausible scientific theories concerning the process by which our solar system has taken shape, including a cataclysmic celestial collision. We find in the ancient text answers to some puzzles attending modern theories concerning Earth, the Moon, the Asteroid belt, the comets, Pluto, and even a presumption of the existence of a "Planet X."7 Lines 1-2 of the Akkadian text8 establish the time frame: Heaven and Earth (" firm ground ...
53. Did Worlds Collide [Journals] [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 4 No 3: (Summer 1974) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered VIII" Home | Issue Contents Did Worlds Collide Robert W. Bass Copyright 1974 by Robert W. Bass Bode's Law and the established principles of celestial mechanics do not preclude planetary near-collisions in the recent past. Dr. Bass, a 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 ...
54. Ladder to Heaven [Journals] [Aeon]
... A seemingly universal belief holds that, in primeval times, heaven was located fairly close to Earth- so close, in fact, that traffic between the two was commonplace. It was in such times, according to the testimony of sacred traditions around the world, that a luminous ladder spanned the sky thereby allowing for ready access to the celestial kingdom. Through one catastrophe or another, the ladder-to-heaven eventually collapsed and the sky was uplifted to its present height, often amidst cataclysmic circumstances. The continent of Africa offers a wealth of documentation attesting to a ladder-to-heaven in former times. James Frazer summarized West African lore as follows: "In almost all the series of native traditions there ...
55. Cosmology And PsychologyY [Journals] [Kronos]
... for the simple reason that scholars have been unable to free themselves from uniformitarian dogmas which look for the solution in the common and the ordinary at the one extreme, or the excessively obscure at the other.(2 ) Recognizing that the solution is not to be found in the everyday events of life, recent works have turned to the celestial sphere and sought the answer in the awe-inspiring heavens. But even these contain obvious ad hoc explanations which present neither a unifying hypothesis nor a substantive example of causation. Hamlet's Mill: An Essay on Myth and the Frame of Time is a case in point. This scholarly but abstruse work is a study in futility. While concluding that ...
56. Mother Goddess and Warrior-Hero (Part One) [Journals] [Aeon]
... volumes. Taking world mythology and folklore as a whole, the two most active and frequently-occurring figures are (as illuminated by the archetypes of the polar configuration) echoes of Venus and Mars. For a variety of reasons, this truth has not been perceived. Much of heroic literature has been so fully brought down to Earth that the original celestial character of the central figures has been profoundly distorted- and often abandoned altogether- by the storytellers. Additionally, while prior comparative analysis has revealed many interesting common traits of these figures, it has not begun to penetrate to the depth of the parallels- even though these parallels are easily detected once the concrete forms of the archetypes and ...
57. On Celestial Mechanics [Journals] [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 3 No 1: (Winter 1973) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered III" Home | Issue Contents On Celestial Mechanics Martin Kruskal, Ralph Jergens, C.E .R . Bruce, Melvin A. Cook SPECIAL SUPPLEMENT I PROFESSOR MARTIN KRUSKAL- Program in Applied Mathematics, Princeton University Editor's note: The following is Professor Kruskal's evaluation of Ralph Juergens' paper, "Reconciling Celestial Mechanics and Velikovskian catastrophism" (Pensée, fall, 1972). Kruskal's remarks, submitted to Pensée prior to publication of Juergens' manuscript, stand unaltered except for appropriate changes in page references. The following issue of Pensée will carry part two of the exchange between Kruskal and ...
58. CLASHING MAGNETIC FIELDS [Journals] [Aeon]
... swift distortion of the two planets' magnetic fields. Additional recharging and polarity reversals were "created" by the "passing by" of the massive body.(1 ) Most of the electricity generated and polar reversals however, may in time be attributed to just the fact of one body passing close by another. Ronald Hatch, a celestial physicist, will soon publish a treatise on the subject of gravity and relativity in physics which has been some ten years in the writing. He is expanding upon the commonly assumed fact that Maxwell's "potential" equations are wrong. Usually assumed to be irrelevant, some experimenters have noted results showing these potential equations to be quite germane and ...
59. Spatters And Planetary Iconography [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... petalled." Two of these spatters are cut off by the borders of the plate. If these spatters were symbolic, not natural, why would the artist cut them off and treat them as if they were mere background, like clouds in a photograph? Figure 1 Figure 62 The activity seen in Figure 1 reflects a period of probable celestial turmoil. Spatters evidently appeared during the Trojan War era. Let us see if they recur. Figure 62 is my depiction of a scene from an amphora which illustrates the roles of Hermes, Hera, Athena and Aphrodite in the beginning of the Trojan War. The top portion shows what seem to be celestial apparitions, the bottom portion ...
60. Observations of Venus by James I [Journals] [Horus]
... Newton, remarked that "in about a fourth of the records . . ., the date listed is not that of an eclipse visible in China .. .. further, of all the solar eclipses recorded in the annals of the Han Dynasty .. . only four are correct to within a degree of Right Ascension (the expected celestial longitude of the eclipsed sun)..." Given the reputation for accuracy of ancient Chinese astronomical observations, Newton's remark is surprising. Were these observations of eclipses an accurate description of a past reality? If one examines the entire record of astronomical observations from China and other areas of the world from ancient times through the 20th Century ...
