... blue sky vaulted above our heads. A short walk along the causeway took us to the entrance of the Unas pyramid. Again we penetrated the darkened passage which leads into the underworld to find ourselves in a chamber covered from wall to ceiling in inscriptions. The blue columns of hieroglyphs in the burial chamber form the spells, hymns and prayers which comprise the Pyramid Texts- the Unas version being one of the earliest records of rites associated with the afterlife to have been found. The party took a well-earned rest in the Great Court ... in the waters of the Orontes flowing past the fortified city of Kadesh. Returning, via the Osireion- a strange underground cenotaph built for Osiris some unknown time before the surrounding 19th-Dynasty structures- our group descended the steps of Seti's temple into the welcome shade of its columned hallways, to he led by Mostafa finally back to the entrance colonnade from where our tour had begun several hours earlier. After a brief rest we drove south, along the river, as far as Nag Hamadi and boarded the Nile Star for our journey, ...

... -- and I fear that it is-- we are in an age of intellectual catastrophe, a real cause for consternation. (3) In February, James Putnam showed Shapley's letters to Velikovsky. Nevertheless, despite the pugnacity he had shown in his Observer columns only a couple of years earlier, Velikovsky remained aloof from the fray. But the growing boycott campaign against Macmillan and "the most savage reviews a book of non-fiction has received for a long time" (as Doubleday's west coast editor Howard Cady told Berkeley Gazette ... Ken Carnahan on June 25) caused him to begin counterpunching. Gone was his Observer truculence, however; despite a great deal of provocation, over the coming decades Velikovsky almost always managed to keep the moral high ground, arguing issues rather than personalities. His opponents were not always so canny or so gracious. The Minneapolis Sunday Tribune (Feb. 12) gave prominence to a letter by two University of Minnesota scientists, astronomer William Luyton and aeronautical engineer Jean Picard, protesting the paper's reprint of "The Day the Sun Stood ...

... etc.), it does not predict that these identities could ever be maintained in their original purity for an extended period. Rather, in focusing on later epic literature, the researcher must look for seemingly inexplicable juxtapositions involving the same nexus of symbols. The celestial column's archetypal symbolism as a channel of "water," for example, will be reflected in numerous later variations: The warrior-hero rising daily from a fount or nether river, or "irrigating" the domain of a god-or king, or providing a channel for the ... in the center of Saturn, Mars "descends" to a position visually beneath the planet, a location requiring much closer proximity to the Earth. And given this proximity, the gathering of gas or dust into a stream between the two orbs-- offering a column-like apparition to terrestrial viewers-- would be a predictable effect. In the myths these events are recounted as the defeat of chaotic powers by the god Shu, who is himself (paradoxically) the "chief" or "lord" of the Aakhu. ( ...

... by mid twentieth century radiometric dating. For the non-geologist it should be pointed out that the usefulness of fossils comes primarily in their setting of "time horizons" in their "type localities," which then can be recognised in other localities. Thus, complete geological columns from various regions have been added to establish worldwide maxima, which then have allowed estimation of the whole geological timescale. If Strickling has any better suggestion for doing this, he should say so. Repeatedly Strickling denigrates the concept of uniformity without showing any awareness that ... is that the atmospheric gases left in deposited layers do not remain in those layers. Rather, due to gravity, they are diffused downward, tending to accumulate on top of more dense layers, or ice, below. "The accumulating firn acts like a giant columnar sieve through which the gravitational enrichment can be maintained by molecular diffusion." At a given borehole, the time between the fresh seasonal fall of new snow and its conversion to nascent ice is roughly the height of the firn layer in m, divided by the ...

15. An Interim Reply To Weir [Kronos $]
... on a different orbit at the time of the observations can we make sense of these latter sorts of invisibilities. Nevertheless, there are several invisibilities that are rather long: in addition to Year 9, we would have to mention Years 8b, 12, 14, 15, and 20. Thus there might be a significant role to be played by something like Weir's comet.*** Weir seems to have misunderstood page 23 of our "Analysis" paper( KRONOS II:2, pages 3-26). We used parallel columns there to explain our views about the textual history of Years 8b and 16, but we never dreamed that anyone would take this to mean that the data themselves were ever laid out in parallel columns. The Ninsianna document was always written as a consecutive text. Even when the text was written in columns, as on K. 7225 and on VAT 11253, they seem to have been simply columns of text, not parallel columns in the strict sense. Page 23 of our "Analysis" paper was written before we correctly ...

[Numerous other Etruscan cultural traits reflect Mycenaean models, something that would be not unexpected if, as the revised timetable postulates, the two cultures were contemporary, yet most difficult to account for if, as the conventional scheme requires, five hundred years of darkness intervened. (a) Columns. The types of columns used in Etruscan buildings derive from columns of Knossos and Mycenae, and have nothing in common with the Doric columns of seventh and sixth-century Greece.(S. von Cles-Redden, The Buried People: A Study of the Etruscan World, transl. by C. M. Woodhouse [New York, 1955, p. 35.) But it is presumed that no Mycenaean or Minoan structures were left standing in Etruscan times. Where, then, did the Etruscans find the models for their wooden columns ...

... detail here, it is my opinion that omission of that circle does not indicate a missing or unlisted planet. In the following set of tabulations I have attempted an analysis, based on an identification of the named "stars", and on certain planetary aspects, to determine any plausible order in the list as given. In the 1st column of Table I are listed the names of the celestial bodies as they appear in the book. Column 2 is a matching list giving the commonly accepted modern names of those bodies. In columns 3, 4, 5 and 6, employing certain physical criteria, I have numerically ranked the five planets that are listed in column 2 in the attempt to uncover whatever planetary order the author may have used in setting out his list. Based on clear evidence found within the book and elsewhere, that ancient astronomers considered the sun and moon as belonging in a distinct and special category, I have omitted these two bodies from the analysis and dealt only with the actual visible planets. Col. 3- the planets are ranked ...

18. BYWAYS OF ELECTRICITY [Quantavolution Website]
... : 146: Dido entertains the Troians at Carthage. Among the company that go out for the royal hunt, familiar to many through music by Berlioz, are the picti Agathyrsi, painted Agathyrsi, a Scythian people living in what later became Transylvania. 'Aga' in compounds implies 'very'. Were they experts with the thyrsus? Iliad XVIII: 590: The dance at Knossos starts as a round dance like the dithyramb, then develops in confrontational style like the later tragic chorus, with two acrobats loose in the company. The columns of some Greek temples appear to be cut in marble in such a way as to suggest that wood was the original material. There may be a link between Yggdrasyl, the sacred oak tree of Zeus at Dodona and elsewhere, the columns of the Greek temple, the Lion Gate at Mycenae, and so on. Nails, Greek 'helos', were sometimes driven into wooden pillars. This was a Roman method of marking the date. Pausanias III: 20: 9: "On the way from Sparta to Arkadia is ...

... tornadoes, and waterspouts are electric discharge phenomena. See“ Electric Dust Devils." The electrical theorists urge NASA researchers to drop once and for all the long-standing and unsupported dogma of an electrically neutral solar system, which has prevented meteorologists from seeing the larger role of electricity in weather phenomena on all planets, and even on the Sun. Scientists exploring Martian dust devils are forced to locate the “cause” of the electrical discharges in solar heating and the resulting mechanical energy of air convection. But in the Electric Universe, rotating columns of air are a natural consequence of atmospheric electric discharge. Rotating columns are the prevalent forms taken by electric currents in plasma. A researcher unaware of the global circuitry involved will be limited to mere discussions of localized charge separation. Effect will be confused with cause. Charge separation will be attributed merely to the physics of dusty air circulation within the vortex. But from the electrical vantage point, the dusty vortex itself is caused by charge exchange between the Earth and the solar plasma. The towering dust devils on Mars help to ...
