171. Saturn's Sacred Mountain [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... the Mountain was an actual physical protuberance of the globe. One of the most prominent features of the primeval Saturn consisted of what appeared to be a bright ray of light emanating from the boreal body and stretching all the way to Earth's north polar horizon. Perspective bestowed on this singular ray, known to mythologists as the Axis Mundi or Polar Column, an elongated conical shape tapering away from Earth. In reality, this Column or Axis was a churning cyclone of cosmic dimensions. Throughout its existence, and from a distance, it presented a peaceful and beautiful image. There were times, however, when it turned into a terrible vortex of great destruction. [15] Talbott ...

... into this procession. We know, from chronological correlations, that the king was Sesostris III; we also know where in his reign some data may be found: the middle or later period. The stela of Khu-Sebek, an official who served under Sesostris, was found by Garstang at Abydos in 19015. Its main face presents twelve vertical columns of text that contain the official's early history, including his participation in a military campaign of Sesostris to Nubia, and several promotions. This was the main content of the text. As an afterthought, another five horizontal lines were added to describe an Asiatic campaign in which Khu-Sebek participated. These lines of text take the place of a ...

173. Editor's Notes & News C&C Review 2001:2 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... (both orthodox and revisionist) are right to assume that when the Bible says 40 years' it really means this. Forum' features contributions from a variety of familiar names on debates at the heart of the Velikovskian controversy: the role of electricity in the cosmos and the possibility of near-collisions between planets in the recent past. Our regular columns Monitor' and Recent Developments in Near Eastern Archaeology' are joined by a new column, Pot Pourri' by Paul Standring, which reviews material in recent books, TV programmes and newspaper articles. This issue also features a bumper collection of book reviews and readers' letters. The past year has seen the sad deaths of a number ...

... the word translated as thousands' was [also] a term for a military unit of about 10 men. Including the young, old and inform, the Levites and the women, the Israelites would have totalled between 20 and 25 thousand. Moving as an army (Ex. 12:17) five abreast they would have formed a column about 4 miles long. Nursing mothers, sheep and cattle move slowly: at 1 mph the column would take 4 to 6 hours to cross the Sea of Passage, consistent with the biblical record and common sense. But who could have organised this vast rabble to move as an army? How and when did they do it? ...

175. The Crescent II [Books]
... texts describe the god "sailing over the supports of Shu," (85) or engaged in his "voyage over the Leg of Ptah," (86) they do not depart from the integrated symbolism of the world pillar, for the supports of Shu ( ) and the leg of Ptah refer to one and the same cosmic column. It is surely significant that in both Egypt and Mesopotamia the cosmic pillar appears as the "mooring post" of the great god's ship. What the Sumerians called dimgal (Babylonian tarkullu) and the Egyptians mena or menat may be translated either as the "Binding Post" or "Mooring Post." The Egyptian image of the ...

176. On "the Year -687" [Journals] [Kronos]
... it was under the Han, it would appear that the tradition that the Chou began their year in the month of the winter solstice must be wrong. How can this contradiction be resolved? There are 36 solar eclipses recorded in the Ch'un Ch'iu. These provide a clue. The data are summarized in Table 2. In the first three columns are listed the duke of Lu and the year and month of his reign in which the eclipse was said to have occurred. The month number in Roman numerals is followed by an Arabic "1 " if the character shuo appears in the text, which means the first day of the month. Most of the entries have this character ...

177. Exploring The Saturn Myth [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... presenting an image recorded in myths and symbols around the world. The key components are: a stationary and sun-like orb (mythically associated with Saturn) at the celestial pole. four primary streams of ejecta radiating in four directions. an enclosing band. an illuminated crescent displayed on the band and visually rotating around the central orb. an aetherial column (mythically associated with Mars) appearing to hold aloft the revolving wheel. a comet-like appendage (mythically associated with the enclosing band and with Venus) seeming to spiral out from the wheel and revolving faster than the crescent. The phenomenon is a dynamic one, not only with a mysterious daily cycle (directly related to the behaviour of ...

... the others. Inevitably, then, the battle was joined, and became more heated. To disentangle the arguments, one would have to wade in polemic and counterpolemic, with no quarter given on either side. Nor would one find either side prepared to admit to error even in minor matters. Thus "Larrabee Rebuts" in the correspondence column of The Reporter [210]: Payne-Gaposchkin's statements of fact were irrelevant or inexact (with one exception), presumably because she had not read the book she was criticizing. Velikovsky admitted and discussed his differences with Newtonian theory. Payne-Gaposchkin was wrong about early Babylonian observations of Venus, about the biblical quota-Lions, and about the provenance of ...

... requiring new' physics [diag. from Gaseous Conductors, by James D. Cobine, Dover Publications]. As Juergens argued, within our solar system the Sun bears all of the hallmarks of a small spherical anode in a vast galactic discharge. Following the discharge tube analogue shown above, the planets move within the heliosphere, or positive column region. That region has a weak electric field centred on the Sun as the anode and a virtual cathode' at the heliosphere. Like the discharge tube the number of positive ions is practically equal to the number of electrons (net charge density) anywhere in the positive column region. Since the Sun occupies the vast heliosphere, which ...

180. Thoth Vol III, No. 6: March 31, 1999 [Journals] [Thoth]
... had a vacuum pump, you will have seen the glows move and disappear as the pressure was reduced. A neon sign is a conspicuous application of a low-pressure glow discharge. However, don't confuse the light from a neon tube with the mechanism that lights up the Sun. The glow from the neon tube is produced in the "positive column" of the discharge. The positive column is a typical plasma having equal concentrations of positive ions and of electrons, with the electron temperature very high - sufficient to maintain the degree of ionization required to carry the electric current. The glowing positive column is formed only in thin tubes because in an extended plasma a much lower degree of ...
