91. The Saturn Thesis (Part 2) [Journals] [Aeon]
... see beyond poetic metaphors to the cosmic history behind them. In the ancient lexicon, the most common symbol for cometary phenomena, of course, was that of streaming hair. And if you will seek out the underlying patterns, you will see that the flowing hair- the coma of the goddess- and the coma of the archetypal Great Comet are one and the same. AEON: But how do we move from interesting impressions to reliable conclusions? Talbott: Well, the point is that a serious researcher really can settle this question to his own satisfaction. It is often held, for example, that Aphrodite was nothing more than a projection of feminine charm onto a goddess ...
92. ABOB's Page: Comets, Culture, & Currency [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1996:2 (Feb 1997) Home | Issue Contents ABOB's Page: Comets, Culture, & Currency http://abob.libs.uga.edu/bobk/This is the Web page of SIS author, Bob Kobres (see Workshop 1991:2 ), which he describes as reflecting "over a decade of research aimed at understanding the social and physical influence of a large comet in an Earth threatening orbit which, according to astronomical evidence, has been progressively breaking up since the Holocene time period began". Articles include: "Comet Phaethon's Ride", a condensed version of which, titled, "The Path of ...
93. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... , In the October, 1985 issue of SOUTHERN CROSS, the journal of the Canberra Astronomical Society, I had an article published dealing with the electrical nature of cometary phenomena, with Ralph Juergen's ideas firmly in mind but unmentioned. Instead I drew attention to an article in the SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN for July 27, 1872 entitled "The Nature of Comets", which showed clearly that an electrical explanation for a comet's tail was then considered to be acceptable. After putting my money on the 100+ year old explanation and rather unsubtly highlighting the deficiencies of modern astronomical philosophy, I wrote the following: "It would be interesting to know if the star-like appearance and jets of some cometary ...

96. The Birth of Athena [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon II:3 (1990) Home | Issue Contents The Birth of Athena Ev Cochrane There are also stars that suddenly come to birth in the heaven itself... The Greeks call them comets. (1 ) By all accounts the birth of Athena from the head of her father was a tumultuous occasion. "Athena sprang from the skull of Zeus with an earth-shattering battle-cry, so that the heavens shook and the mother earth." (2 ) The account in the Homeric Hymn of Athena is of a comparable nature: And before Zeus the aegis-holder she sprang swiftly from his immortal head, brandishing a sharp-pointed spear. Great Olympos quaked dreadfully under the ...
97. How Stable Is the Solar System? [Journals] [Pensee]
... Worth, Texas. He teaches a course in Velikovsky theory at Texas Christian University, and has lectured on the subject at other universities in Texas, Switzerland, Germany, and England. The scientific literature today abounds with catastrophic hypotheses not unlike the events Velikovsky described in 1950. (Harold Urey has suggested that a collision between Earth and a comet splashed water onto the moon. R.A . Lyttleton believes Jupiter may have split apart in the past.) Many of these hypotheses lend additional support to Velikovsky's views. "In questions of science the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual."- Galileo Galilei "Is it not the ...
... .3 x 1028, or about a trillion quadrillion to one." Sagan says, "We here consider using the most elementary treatment which preserves the essential physics, the probability that a massive object of the sort considered by Velikovsky to be ejected from Jupiter might impact the Earth. Velikovsky proposes that a grazing or near-collision occurred between this comet and the Earth. We will subsume this idea under the designation collision' below among other objects of similar size. Collision will occur when the centers of the objects are 2R distance. We may then speak of an effective collision. Cross section of p(2R)2 = 4pR2; this is the targeted area which the center ...
99. Evolution from Space [Articles]
... warm welcome. By any standards he is an expert on space, being Head of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Astronomy at University College, Cardiff. His studies have convinced him that not only did life arrive from space, but that it is still arriving, causing epidemics and changing the course of evolution. It is not simply that comets or asteroids arrive from space and cause catastrophes, wiping out many species and influencing evolution in that way; he considers that genes arriving from space in bacteria or viruses may actually be incorporated into the chromosomes of terrestrial organisms. Together with his collaborator, Sir Fred Hoyle, he has explained his views in books such as Life Cloud, ...
... ' city strictly by coincidence. But Sagan has also told us "There is no common celestial event that could conceivably explain this concordance." But Tula or Tollan is the city of a celestial body, Venus. And we shall show further on that even. Sagan's evidence shows Quetzalcoad or Venus was seen by the ancient Americans as a comet. Thus the evidence is entirely against Sagan's analysis. In fact, even if we give credence to Sagan's views, A Nahuatl-English Dictionary by John Bierhorst Stanford Univ. Press, CA, 1985) p. 310, defines, "Teotihuacan-1. Place where one becomes a spirit i.e ., the hereafter. 2. Famous ...
