131. Senmut and Phaeton: Supplementary Notes [Journals] [SIS Review]
... as far as Scorpius (as is quite plausible), each of them represented by a separate crocodile. 2. Mars and the Egyptian Underworld The supposition that the Egyptian Gods of the Underworld will represent stars which had disappeared from the sky at some time should be capable of verification (e .g . the 4 stars of the Southern Cross might well be amongst them; the eye which was lost by Horus in combat with Seth could also be traceable). If the ancient claim that the sun has changed its direction of travel four times is correct, the Egyptians would certainly have cause to treat the Gods of the Underworld with respect, for they would always be liable ...
132. Notes on the Androgynous Comet [Journals] [SIS Review]
... to the "planet" Venus. The close connection of Aphrodite (Aphroditos) with the male aspect of the Venus Star disposes also of the apparently irresistable trend to connect Aphrodite with the moon (23). It has even been maintained that the ankh, termed in the figurative sense the symbol of life, is the source of the Cross: "The Egyptian ankh, the symbol of life, is a combination of male and female. By slight modification it became the cross..." (24). The hooked cross, the swastika, also appears to be related to the ankh: in at least one representation, "the androgynous goddess Ardhanari holds in ...
133. Velikovsky and the Sequence of Planetary Orbits [Journals] [Pensee]
... where, among other courses, he teaches the history and philosophy of science. Mr. Vaughan is a senior technician at Carborundum Corporation, Niagara, New York. The orbits we proposed in 1972 (1 ) were intended to refute the claim that Velikovsky's theory is astronomically impossible. They demonstrate that Keplerian orbits can be proposed that not only cross each other- so that collisions or near-collisions will tend to occur- but also conserve total angular momentum and do not increase total orbital energy. Further investigation of these orbits was carried out by Ransom and Hoffee (2 ). In this article, we propose several alternative sequences of Keplerian orbits, accompanied by discussion of our methods, assumptions, ...
134. RECONSTRUCTING THE SATURN MYTH [Journals] [Aeon]
... Aten is itself the "mistress" of the sun god, and the evidence in its totality will leave no doubt that the universal goddess and the band of the enclosed sun mean the same thing, with each of the "incongruous" attributes of the goddess finding its explanation in an explicit attribute of the band. (25) Sun Cross It was an ancient practice of the Egyptian king, on assuming the throne, to release an arrow in each of the four directions, an act which served symbolically both to affirm the divine stature of the king and to consecrate the land as a terrestrial copy of the "ideal" land organized by the central sun in the sky ...
135. Noah's Ark: I - The Ship on Ararat (Part A) [Journals] [Kronos]
... or later someone was bound to claim success. Domingo Alessandro of Rome, another monk from a hermitage on the side of Ararat, claimed to have climbed the mountain without displeasing god. The 17th century Dutch traveller, Jans Janszoon Struys, had occasion to alleviate Brother Domingo of a serious hernia condition. In return, he was given a cross said to have been carved from wood taken from Noah's ark. In a testimony he wrote specifically for the Dutch traveller on July 22, 1670, Brother Domingo stated: "I myself entered that Ark and with my own hands cut from the wood of one of its compartments the fragment from which that cross is made. "I ...

139. Letters [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... 052 INDIA G Fluctuations and Planetary Orbits H. ASPDEN Southampton, Great Britain Crew, writing in Catastr. Geol. 3.1 (ref.1 ), states that my earlier paper (2 ) ignores the effect which the occasional G fluctuations would have on planetary orbits. My proposal that gravitation should lapse momentarily for interactions between matter crossing a space domain is, however, quite compatible with the eccentricities of planetary orbits, as I show below. Consider motion of the solar system through space at velocity v measured in the plane of the planet's orbit. Imagine the normal traversal of a space boundary in the most catastrophic' circumstance, that is, when the radius vector ...

... step-symbol' is the hierograph Earth' and is also indicative of the andenes, or agricultural terraces, of the deeply indented Life Asylum which was set in the Girdle-tide. The white circles (actually bosses) at the corners symbolize the snow-capped highest Andean peak in the neighbourhood of Tiahuanaco, perhaps the Illampu, or the Illimani. The black cross' is the world-wide heaven-propper' symbol which expresses magical protection from cosmic dangers. This interpretation is borne out by the little disk lying on the cross' and kept away' by it from the quartered Earth' symbol below it. The yellow colour is always conventionally attributed to the evil puma star', the former Satellite, on ...
