61. Part IV: Conclusions [Ragnarok] [Books]
... and is associated with recollections of this Great Hare, this demi-god, this man or race, who taught them all the arts of life with which they are acquainted. Then there is a turtle totem, associated with myths of the turtle or tortoise, which are the images all over the world of an island.14 And when we cross the Atlantic we find 15 that the Arabs are divided up in the same way into tribes bearing animal names. " Asad, lion; a number of tribes. ' Aws, wolf; a tribe of the Ancar, or Defenders. ' Badau, ibex; a tribe of the Kalb and others. ' Tha'laba, she-fox; ...
... of Dis and his unsubstantial realm, even as under the grudging light of an Inconstant moon lies a path in the forest." The beauty of the lines disguises the fact that the voyage really is not through subterranean caverns crowded with the countless dead, but through great stretches of emptiness suggesting night 193 space, and once the party has crossed the rivers and passed the gates of Elysium thanks to the magic of the Golden Bough, they are in a serene land "whence, in the world above, the full flood of Eridanus rolls amid the forest." Now Eridanus is and was in heaven — surely not, in this context, on the Lombard plain. And ...
63. Orbits And Their Measurements [Journals] [Kronos]
... value for the point can be measured from one (or both) of the rmin reference contours; the contour rmin = I will be chosen arbitrarily. The rmin-scale on the "ruler" should be laid alongside the vertical line e = 0.5 on which the point lies, and the reference contour rmin = 1 (where it crosses e = 0.5 ) should be lined up with the value on the rmin-scale which is the same as the reference contour's value, which in this case is 1. There are three different marks on the rmin-scale that can represent the value 1, since the decimal point location is not indicated there; the mark in the middle ...
... also distinctive and match the outer ten rings of a log in the wall of the cabin. If this log has a total of seventy rings, the rings for sixty additional years are available. Rings can then be counted for one hundred and sixty separate years, although no tree that old was available. Correlating the distinctive Patterns is called cross matching. Carbon dating wood from each ring should give a radiocarbon date for each counted year. Theoretically, the method sounds quite reasonable. However, Sorensen points out that there are three practical difficulties in the implementation of the method. First distinctive patterns are not as common as dendrochronologists might wish. In order to have a distinctive pattern ...
65. Catastrophism and the Old Testament: The Mars-Earth Conflicts by Donald Wesley Patten [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the orbit of Mars lay in what is now the asteroid belt. The Astra encounter altered its orbit to one with eccentricity c. 0.5 , aphelion at 218 million miles and perihelion at 75 million miles - i.e . inside Earth's orbit. In this highly elliptical orbit Mars was in 1:2 resonance with Earth, crossing Earth's orbit always on October 24 and March 20-21 and always passing Earth's sunward side. Every 54 years (i .e . every 27th pair of orbit crossings) from 9900 BC, Earth and Mars came close together (a flyby); at 540 year intervals flybys were very close, because Jupiter and Saturn - their orbits harmonised ...
66. The 108-year Cyclicism of the Ancient Catastrophes [Journals] [Aeon]
... this catastrophe, was 180 degrees opposite Jupiter, in Cancer. In short, Jupiter was elongating the orbit of Mars from its aphelion position, while Saturn was rounding out that same orbit from its perihelion position. They were working together to reduce the eccentricity of the orbit of Mars, and to significantly shift the location where the two orbits crossed. This is of significance in a finely-tuned model of Mars-Earth catastrophism. In fact, we have concluded that the warp caused by Jupiter in Capricorn was increased 20% by Saturn's presence in Cancer. Our primary point here is that our astronomical analysis of the celestial scene as it was in 701 B.C . agrees with the 701 ...
67. A Few Comments Upon Re-reading "Worlds in Collision" [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the one religious tradition. 2. The Provenance of the Cimmerians The Cimmerians invaded Anatolia in the seventh century BC. Some theorists assert that they came from the Caucasus, others prefer Thrace. Velikovsky, uncharacteristically, does not mention this dispute but states categorically, "the Cimmerians wandered from Europe across the Bosphorus into Asia Minor, the Scythians crossed the Caucasus into Asia".(3 ) However, he later changed his mind. "To reach Gordion, they had to pass through the bend of the Halys and engulf Boghazköi."4 As Gordion is directly west of the Halys bend, this implies that they moved south-westward from the Caucasus. This is confirmed on a ...
68. New Frontiers on the Stability of the Solar System [Articles]
... place, the two planets could collide or suffer a near-collision, or one could be slung out of the Solar System. When you ask, in the case of the planets and the Solar System, how long are these series of trigonometrical terms good for in the sense that they say that for that length of time there will be no crossing of the planets' orbits, then the surprising answer is, a few thousand years. This has not passed into legend, you see, the legend is that the planetary orbits are stable for millions of years. And so, when this was highlighted, everyone started to work on the problem again. There are various methods by ...
69. The Garden of Venus [Journals] [Aeon]
... four streams belong to the primeval enclosure."  In a more recent study of this symbolism, Talbott offered the following conclusion with specific reference to the Shamash-sign shown in figure three: "The image seems to suggest four rivers streaming from the nave or hub of the wheel in four directions."  The Venus Cross Figure 4 We have suggested that traditions of a sacred spring associated with Venus trace to the quaternary symbolism associated with the ancient sun-god. But why should this be the case? Why would Venus-symbolism trace to the sun? As I have documented, there are compelling reasons for believing that the planet Venus once appeared set in the center of ...
70. Frequency Of Giant Meteorite Falls [Books]
... It is known that a great number of the small planets revolve between Mars and Jupiter in more or less stable orbits. The big planets, however, and especially Jupiter, may suddenly and violently disturb the orbits of the asteroids .6 This may bring about collisions between them, fragmenting them, and increasing the number of bodies likely to cross the Earth's orbit. Eight asteroids are at present known to move in orbits crossing the Earth's path. Among them are Hermes, which has approached within 800,000 km. of our planet (and may come as close as 354,000 km.), and Adonis, which rushed by at a distance of 1,500 ...
