71. Saturn's Cosmos [Books]
... . Rarely do archaeologists, seeking to interpret the widespread "sun" symbols, consult ancient mythology. Yet the myths explain the symbols, and the symbols illuminate the myths. Largely overlooked by archaeologists are the hundreds upon hundreds of myths and liturgies focusing on the cosmic images , , and . Ancient sources reveal a world-wide concern with a concrete celestial form- an ideal configuration identified as the great god and his heavenly dwelling. The subject is not the present world order, but the former. The symbols, legends, and sacred hymns attempt to preserve a memory Saturn and the primeval Cosmos. THE ENCLOSED SUN When Saturn appeared alone in the cosmic waters, a brilliant band congealed ...
72. Proof of A Celestial Counterforce to Gravity [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 1 No 3 (1993) Home | Issue Contents Proof of A Celestial Counterforce to Gravity Charles Ginenthal One of the most basic concepts of gravitational theory, as devised by Isaac Newton is that of angular momentum, and, more importantly, the law of conservation of angular momentum. As Carl Sagan stated, "There is one further point about the scientific method that must be made. Not all scientific statements have equal weight. Newtonian dynamics and the laws of conservation of energy and angular momentum have extremely firm footing." (1 ) The conservation laws required that "[ i ]n a closed [gravitational] system, such as the ...
73. Dark Matter [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... epicycle to Ptolemy's spheres in order to match his geocentric theories with observed planetary movement, so today cosmologists add dark matter to cosmic strings as inflation papering over the yawning crevices in their theory. (1 ) Nothing so disturbs or infuriates the astronomical community as the concept proposed by Velikovsky, that gravity may not be the only fundamental force governing celestial motion. When Velikovsky proposed this, he asserted a belief that the foundation stone of all astronomical and cosmological thought was in error and brought upon himself unending rage and furor. Velikovsky had questioned that which had always been assumed to be beyond question and settled for all time. Harlow Shapley, nurtured in the Newtonian tradition, expressed his ...
74. Night of the Gods: Polar Myths. The Pole Star [Books]
... his implements in the North.5 THIS subject, towards which we have been working our way throughout this Volume, of which it forms the closing section, will most conveniently be opened by some proofs that the Most High, the deity symbolically worshipped on High Places, was the God of the Polestar, who was seated at the Highest celestial spot of the Cosmos, the North Pole of the heavens. The foregoing quotations from Hebrew and Egyptian sacred literature form a fitting introduction, and we may now add to them some Greek and other instances. THE MOST HIGH. Zeus Hypatos, the Most High, was offered no living victim, but only cakes and wine on his ...
75. The Crescent [Books]
... not a contrived "conjunction" of the solar orb and new moon (the conventional explanation), but rather the primeval sun Saturn resting over the illuminated portion of his polar enclosure? Certainly the overlapping images and imply that the enclosed sun and sun-in-crescent pertain to a single astral configuration. When O"Neill claimed that the sign symbolized the celestial pole, he took the sign as a kind of metaphor- an ancient means of representing the revolution of the circumpolar stars around a fixed centre. Others have identified the band as the illusory atmospheric halo which occasionally surrounds the solar orb, while still others explain the band as an abstract "circle of the sky." But the ...
76. The Aristotelian Cosmos [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... and unnatural [because objects on Earth do rise and fall], the movement [of the Earth would allow it to pursue irregular paths and therefore] could not be eternal. BUT THE ORDER OF THE UNIVERSE IS ETERNAL." [Capitalization added] Aristotle, On the Heavens Book II, paragraph 1 "Harmony or stability in the celestial and terrestrial spheres is .. . [my] point of departure of the present-day concept of the world..." Immanuel Velikovsky, Worlds in Collision (N .Y . 1950), "Preface," p. VII 2 VELIKOVSKIAN Vol. V, No. 1 The theory presented by Immanuel Velikovsky maintains that, ...
77. Thoth Vol I, No. 12: April 29, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... the ruler of the sky stood motionless at the polar center, while yet turning the heavens. Which is to say that the philosopher's Unmoved Mover had an ancient mythical prototype in the central sun, the founder of the Golden Age. So one step in the reasoning here is simply to note the language applied by the first astronomers to the celestial pole and to compare that terminology to the earlier language applied to the great rulers of the sky. Consider the image of the pole in Shakespeare- ". .. I am constant as the northern star, Of whose true-fix'd and resting quality There is no fellow in the firmament" The speaker here is Shakespeare's Caesar- whom tradition regarded as ...
78. The River of Ocean [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Studies. His writings have appeared in many publications including Topper, The Ubyssey, Pensee, Kronos, The Sourcebook Project, UFO Report, Frontiers of Science, C&AH, CSIS Newsletter, Workshop and Aeon. 1. The Encircling Ocean Chris Boyles has stated that: "To suggest, for example, that serpents always represent a celestial body such as a comet is demonstrably false. Certainly a serpent may sometimes symbolize a comet; but it was also used to represent the ocean (e .g . the serpent of Midgard), both in the way in which the ocean was thought to encircle the land and as an explanation of the eternal rippling motion of the ...
... Velikovsky offered a dramatic profile of our planetary neighbors, raising issues that had never been broached before. He proposed that- The planet Venus once possessed a comet-like tail, and its orbit brought the planet into confrontation with the Earth. The planet Mars, the war-god of the ancient world, participated directly in Earth-threatening catastrophes and appeared to battle other celestial bodies in the sky. During an epoch remembered as the Golden Age, the planet Saturn once shone as the dominant light in the sky- when the Earth was apparently a satellite of Saturn. These principles are not just novel, but central to an entirely new way of looking at man, the Earth, and its celestial habitat. ...
80. Ra as Saturn [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... ) The most convincing evidence concerning the interpretation of the Duat as a circle, however, comes from the hieroglyphic determinative of the name "Duat" itself which is simply depicted as a star, or sun, surrounded by a band or circle.(20) It is thus obvious that, whatever Ra once signified, it was a celestial body that resided within a circle or band or ring. As we all know, the Sun does not send forth its rays into a circle; it does not reside in a ring. The planet Saturn, however, does.(21) There will now be those who will tell us that, under certain conditions, the ...
