101. Comets and the Bronze Age Collapse [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... from W.M . O'Neil's Time and the Calendars (1975): "The word planet comes from the Greek planetes, the wanderers; these seven celestial bodies moved among the fixed stars. The Babylonians had a more picturesque name, bibbu, the wild sheep, as these bodies broke through the fixed formation in which the tame sheep crossed the sky." To call into question Greek continuity of planet identity I refer to Leonardo Taran's work on the Pseudo-Platonic' Epinomis (1975) where in commentary on lines 986 A 8-987 D 2 Taran states: "Having previously proved to his own satisfaction that all the heavenly bodies are the greatest divine living beings and having pointed out ...
102. Earth Magic: A Review by FRANCIS HITCHING [Journals] [Kronos]
... Psychics are even more responsive to megaliths, especially menhirs, all of which give them prickly sensations and a few of which jerk their bodies as with electric shocks. Dowsers, or "water-witches," who have worked near megaliths assert that all of them are positioned over underground water. They further maintain that menhirs mark places where subterranean streams cross one another and that cromlechs, or stone circles, occur over "blind springs"- that is, upwellings of water which have no surface outlets and therefore radiate horizontally from their sources. Scott Elliott, a dowser who is also a member of the British General Staff, adds that such springs seem to occur primarily over geological faults ...
103. Paired Sets in the Hebrew Alphabet [Journals] [Aeon]
... ' or clew' (for instance, of wool or cotton)." (46) Moran gives it a meaning of "mud," "mire," "potter's clay'," derived from Hebrew tit , "loam," "clay," "mud." The Early Hebrew form of the letter, a cross within a circle, is a Western astrological symbol referring to the planet Earth. The notion of "coiling, twisting" can easily be related to twisting or coiling thread on a spindle to create a ball of cotton or wool, and it is clear that the spindle can symbolize the earth, world, or universe (47) ...
104. Jericho, Part 1 Venus Ch.6 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Jericho The earth's crust trembled and cracked again and again as its strata settled after the major displacement. Chasms opened up, springs disappeared, and new springs appeared.(70) When the Israelites approached the river Jordan, a slice of one bank fell, blocking the stream long enough for the tribes to cross over. "The waters which came down from above stood and rose up upon a heap very far from the city Adam, that is beside Zaretan: and those that came down toward the sea of the plain, even the salt sea, failed, and were cut off: and the people passed over right against Jericho." ...
105. An Appendix to My Articles on Hatshepsut and Thutmose III [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Sinai campaign (1956), Israel gained access to the Gulf of Elath and the Red Sea. This was a given opportunity to sail the same waters in which the Queen had come, though I could not disembark in Egypt, but had to continue to Ethiopia or, more correctly, Eritrea, the very land which Hatshepsut's caravans had crossed. For two months I travelled up and down - most literally - the wild mountains, partly following the ancient roads already used 3000 years ago. Upon return, I registered with the Egyptian Department of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and had the good fortune to study the text of the famous Punt reliefs on the walls of Hatshepsut's Temple ...
106. A. The Identification Of The Biblical "Queen Of Sheba" With Hatshepsut,"Queen Of Egypt And Ethiopia" [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... Following the Sinai campaign in 1956, Israel obtained access to the Gulf of Elath and the Red Sea. This was an opportunity to sail the same waters through which the Queen had sailed, though I could not disembark in Egypt, but had to continue to Ethiopia or, more correctly, Erithrea, the very land which Hatshepsut's caravans had crossed. For two months I travelled up and down- most literally- the wild mountains, partly following the ancient roads used some 3,000 years ago. Upon returning, I registered with the Egyptian Department of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and had the good fortune to study the text of the famous PUNT reliefs on the walls of ...

Hypothetical planetary configuration with Venus on an eccentric orbit crossing the orbits of Jupiter and the Earth. The total angular momentum and energy of the system are the same as at present, and orbital changes have been confined to Venus, Earth and Mars. Earth orbits somewhat closer to the Sun, while Mars assumes an entirely different orbit inside Mercury. Mass x1024kg Mean orbital Radius x106km Energy Eccentricity ...
108. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... configuration was a mirage, and the mechanics suggested as having produced this mirage make a very acceptable alternative. Zysman firstly reminded us of the basic symbols which any scenario must adequately explain - the stationary God at the zenith with a surrounding ring, the crescent usually presented in boat like form on top of the world pillar or mountain, the cross and the curl or spiral. Although the Talbott Saturn scenario does fairly adequately explain all these it can only do so by postulating a whole new pattern of celestial mechanics, and Zysman, among others, had found he could not accept this. What he could accept was the Vail canopy theory, whereby Earth had at some stage been ...
109. The Twin Tilts of the Spin Axes of Mars and Earth [Articles]
... the old Earth orbit was 361 days compared to the modern period, 365.256 days. Figure 1 also shows the "Second Orbit of Venus", one slightly farther out, having about 0.6 % more energy than the modern orbit of Venus. Figure 1 also shows the "Third Orbit of Mars." That orbit crossed in two locations each, the orbits of both Venus and the Earth. Since the planets are co-planar, when Mars and the other planet were both there, the result was Mars-Earth Wars and in addition, Mars-Venus Wars. Figure 1 shows the perihelion of Mars at 65,000,000 miles and its aphelion out in the region ...
110. Night of the Gods: The Axis and the Universe-Tree [Books]
... a big wooden post set up in the open air. " As a cosmogonic column related to the Scandinavian Yggdrasill," writes M. Goblet d'Alviella,17 "the Irminsul connects itself just as well with the tradition of the universal pillar as with that of the Tree of the world." But the axis idea seems never to have crossed M. Goblet's vision. He however approaches very near to the theory advocated in this Inquiry (without however coming into touch with it) when he says "the Chaldeans must be included among the peoples who saw in the universe a tree having the heavens (le ciel) for top and the earth for base or trunk." ...
