161. Velikovsky's Dreamwork [Journals] [Aeon]
... ...any further." For Velikovsky, this statement amounted to a covert confession on Freud's part: he proceeded to give an entirely different account of the dream's meaning, based entirely on the associations actually supplied by Freud, by concentrating his analysis on the associational references to: crucifix and crux. Crucifier means one who carries a cross (crux), a baptized person. Herbarium suggests the sound association to "Hebrew." A herbarium which contains a crux would be a baptized Hebrew. A herbarium which is a book containing a "crucifier" is the Bible, a Gospel. A monograph would be the writings on monotheism. To page through also means to ...
162. Mid-fourteenth Century: Periodicity Of Frenzy. Ch.3 In Fear And Trembling (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... once started, spread rapidly and widely. Hundreds of men, and even boys, marched in companies through the roads and streets, carrying heavy torches, scourging their naked shoulders with knotted whips, which were often loaded with lead or iron, singing penitential hymns, parading in bands which bore banners and were distinguished by white hats with red crosses. "Women as well as men took part in these fanatical exercises, marching about half-naked, whipping each other frightfully, flinging themselves on the earth in the public places of the towns...Entering the churches, they would prostrate themselves on the pavement, with their arms extended in the form of a cross... ...
163. Plato (The Atlantis Myth) [Books]
... ,3 of Syracuse in Sicily, a man of genius and learning, with a great flair for strategy and politics; Critias,4 a distinguished Athenian statesman, orator, and writer; and Socrates5 himself. * The notes to which this numbering refers will be found at the end of the text. The Locrian and the Syracusan had crossed the Ionian Sea to be present at the Panathenaea,6 that greatest of Attic festivals, close rival of the Olympic. As the Lesser Panathenaea this festival was celebrated annually, but once every four years- and so also in the year of which we are speaking, 421 BC, it was observed with especial splendour. While the ...
164. The Argive Tyrants, Part 2 Mars Ch.1 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... nature blot out once more." Will the seasons be ended and the moon be carried away? "No more" shall the stars "mark off the summer and the winter times; no more shall Luna, reflecting Phoebus' rays, dispel night's terrors." After the catastrophe of the days of Atreus and Thyestes, the luminaries crossed their former paths obliquely; the poles were shifted; the year lengthened- the orbit of the earth became wider. "The Zodiac, which, making passage through the sacred stars, crosses the zones obliquely, guide and sign-bearer for the slow moving years, falling itself, shall see the fallen constellations." Seneca describes the change ...
165. Tisserand and a Trojan to the Rescue [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... it would behoove Patten to show with a simple simulation using PC-based software that such a feat is practical. A demonstration of feasibility could even be done on a pocket calculator operating on the common perturbation expression for de/dt the time rate of change of eccentricity.1 Third, it turns out that during the Catastrophic Era Mars not only crossed Earth's orbit but Venus', too. This is a very serious development, because it renders obsolete Steinhauer's unpublished simulation of the periodicity of the Mars-Earth flybys, which was the only rigorous simulation work supposedly in support of Patten's model. My critique maintained that Steinhauer's work was suspect because the circular restricted three-body problem framework he used was not ...
166. Thundergods and Thunderbolts [Journals] [Aeon]
... and from the joints of his flint armor flash the four lightnings, hurling his enemies down into the earth."  Among the god's enemies is included a giant monster which threatened to destroy the world. The pictograph in Figure 8 presents a cross-like form set in the center of the so-called "sun." Significantly, a cross was also associated with the thundergod in ancient Europe. This was the case with the Norse Thor, for example: "An equal-armed cross was already in use as a symbol in the heathen period, and seems to have been associated with Thor."  Similar conceptions surround the Vedic thundergod. Thus, Indra's thunderbolt was ...
167. Velikovsky: A Personal Chronological Perspective of His Final Years [Journals] [Aeon]
... of an embryonic documentary that might have had more far-reaching consequences, besides having invited them down a few weeks prior. With typical gaucherie I had neglected to tell Velikovsky about it beforehand. This was also the first of several lectures I subsequently attended where some of his distinctive mannerisms could be observed. Of these traits was his habit of periodically crossing and uncrossing his legs, first the right over the left and then the left over the right. With some experience it could be determined how long his talk would be by the number of times he did so. Occasionally, too, Mrs. Velikovsky would pass a slip of paper up to him, which he never seemed to ...
... back to the neck and faced about, fronting the tail which he proceeded to encompass with the reins, just as if on that side he would check the horse in its furious pace. . . The reinless steed galloping on, with the rider directing its tail, was ludicrous enough to behold. Amleth went on, and a wolf crossed his path amid the thicket; when his companions told him that a young colt had met him, he retorted that in Fengo's stud there were too few of that kind fighting. This was a gentle but witty fashion of invoking a curse upon his uncle's riches. When they averred that he had given a cunning answer, he answered ...
169. Cometary Catastrophes and the Ideas of Immanuel Velikovsky [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the Earth, it is in fact a representative of the huge Oort cloud coming in on a vast orbit from the very outermost reaches of the Solar System. Now, the significance of the giant molecular clouds in the Galaxy is that when the Solar System runs close to them, which it does every 50 million years or so when we cross spiral arms, the Oort cloud is enormously disturbed and we get comets flying in all directions: a veritable flood of them pours into the centre of the Solar System while an immense number is flung out of the Solar System altogether. So, by discovering giant molecular clouds, we have discovered that the Oort cloud as proposed in 1950 ...
170. On testing The Polar configuration [Journals] [Aeon]
... the cardinal points." (134) [With the polar configuration as a reference, the concept of a central spring or river whose waters are dispersed in the four directions acquires special significance. In the polar column it is easy to imagine a central water source welling up from below to distribute its contents through the arms of the sun cross above. It would not be unreasonable, in other words, to look for similar ideas elsewhere.] The Chinese paradise of Kwen-lun, adorned with pearls, jade, and precious stones, lay at the center and zenith of the world. In this happy abode stood a central fountain from which flowed "in opposite directions the four ...
