121. Velikovsky: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow [Journals] [SIS Review]
... view of human history. At first I tried to ignore the several spellbinding- and strangely disturbing- chapters I read in the library. However on my way home I happened to glance up at a church steeple I had been looking at for years. For the first time I noticed that the highest object above the church was not the cross on top of the steeple but the lightning rod on top of the cross. I went back to the library and took out Worlds In Collision. As a journalist, I realized immediately that Velikovsky's gripping depictions of planetary encounters would make an interesting article. Our first interview took place in the spring of 1969 at his home in Princeton ...
122. Could Mars Have Been An Inner Planet? [Journals] [Pensee]
... in the second millennium .. .. But in the ninth or eighth century before this era, the situation changed radically. Mars became the dreaded planet. Velikovsky does not attempt to describe the orbit of Mars 3000 years ago, before its near collisions with Venus and the Earth. But the Martian orbit at that time probably did not cross the orbit of the Earth, or even come close to crossing it, since such a Mars would have evoked periodic fear. Nor is it likely that Mars was an outer planet, since it could then hardly have played a role in the final taming of Venus. Venus, between its near collisions with the Earth and its near ...
123. Sandal-straps and Semiology [Books] [de Grazia books]
... . Let us recall the book of Cohane on The Key with his several basic words, all god-words, divine, and most likely astral in original reference, og, enah (or hawa), ala, and aza among them. The Black Magellanic Cloud is the name for the seemingly starless patch in the Milky Way near the Southern Cross. The British sailors called it the Coalsack' and, coming then from a land of coal, it is understandable. One may choose, says Cohane, and I agree, between imagining "coalsack" to derive from "coal" and "sack", or to think it may be remotely related in the dim past to ...
124. The Tertiary Age (Life History of Our Earth) [Books]
... of the terrestrial surface, for there the gravitational pull is greatest. On the other hand, if satellitic revolution and terrestrial rotation should happen to coincide when the satellite was over an ocean trough', its pull would soon raise a continental' anchorage above the waters. The equator at that time was probably situated roughly as follows, it crossed Africa at about the twentieth northern parallel of our times, crossed the Atlantic to the mouth of the Orinoco, went on roughly via the Galapagos Islands towards the Tonga and Fiji Islands where it reached about twenty degrees south of the present equator, touched the northernmost tip of Australia, passed on through all the length of Java, and ...
125. Night of the Gods: The Stone [Books]
... point of fact. In the Syriac version of the Theophania (ii, 62) attributed to Eusebius,133it is stated that " the Duniatians (Doumatioi) of Arabia sacrificed a boy annually. Him they buried beneath the altar, and this they used as an Idol." The Gallican bishop in the lustration of the new altar makes crosses at the four angles with holy lustral water, and then walk seven times round the altar, sprinkling it from a bunch of hyssop with the same water.134 It seems very important for my arguments that an antiphon sung during the ceremony of the anointing is " Erexit Jacob lapidem in titulum, fundens oleum desuper," etc, ...
126. The Impossible Dinosaurs [Articles]
... from Knut Nielson's, "Scaling, Why is Animal size So Important", Cambridge Univ Press, 1984, page 163, we have: "It appears that the maximum force or stress that can be exerted by any muscle is inherent in the structure of the muscle filaments. The maximum force is roughly 4 to 4 kgf/cm2 cross section of muscle (300-400 kN/m2). This force is body-size independent and is the same for mouse and elephant muscle. As creatures get larger, weight, which is proportional to volume, goes up in proportion to the cube of the increase in dimension. Strength, on the other hand, is known to be roughly ...
127. Myth, Mandala, and the Collective Unconscious [Journals] [Kronos]
... scribbling (at about age two), through a stage of abstract forms and designs (three to five), to culturally influenced representational drawing (school age). During the abstract design stage, from a repertoire of basic geometric forms and scribble patterns, the world's children tend consistently to produce a mandala design, an upright or diagonal cross centered in a circle. This quaternary pattern often forms the basis for more elaborate mandala-like productions as artistic technique becomes more complex. (Fig. 1). Kellogg explains the phenomenon as the outcome of natural perceptual-motor development patterns in children aided by an inherent sense for balance and design.(8 ) Figure 1 This explanation may account ...
128. Geological Reflections [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... immense amounts of rain - the peak on the north island, Kanuai, is the wettest place on earth - and the southwest sides are almost arid, receiving rain only during the winter months when the trade-winds slack off and "Kona" storms come in from the other direction. There is a perimeter highway around the big island; it crosses many old lava flows. The state of Hawaii has placed signs on each of these flows indicating the year of the flow. It is most astonishing how quickly, on the wet side, the lava flows begin to break down into soil which will support plant life, and how slowly this occurs on the arid side. Very old ...
... world before they reached ours. SOME FAMOUS COMETS 131. One of the most interesting cometary histories is that of Biela's comet, discovered by an Austrian, after whom it was named, in the eighteenth century. Its period was about every six and three-quarter years, but it was not always observed. In 1832 its track was calculated to cross the path of the earth and, in spite of the calm unconcern of astronomers, great fear was felt in France and the United States of a collision, with the result that the churches were crowded. Thirteen years later another (so-called) visit was paid by Biela's, but after attaining perihelion it split into two parts, which ...
130. Thera and the Exodus: the Cause and the Effect [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... '. Separated from the SE Mediterranean by an almost continuous island barrier stretching from Crete to Rhodes, any tsunami would have to negotiate the straits of Kasos and Karpathos to reach the open sea. A straight line drawn from Thera to Pelusium at the eastern extremity of the Nile delta actually passes through the island of Kasos; where this line crosses the Herodotus Abyssal Deep there is a depth of 2,635 metres, but the strait of Kasos is only 50 km wide. Luce describes the effect of a submarine earthquake on Amorgos in 1956, just 50 km from Thera [7 ]. Coasts facing the epicentre suffered damage up to 40 metres above sea level. On the ...
