... disturbed. The result is chaos. Therefore the winds, piping to us in vain, As in revenge, have suck'd up from the sea Contagious fogs; which, falling in the land, Hath every pelting river made so proud That they nave overborne their continents. 2.1 .88-92. The winds can bring life, or destruction. Here, where the natural order of which Oberon and Titania are a part has been broken, the result is destructive. The winds have caused great rain clouds to form, which have rained so heavily that there has been widespread flooding. It must be pointed out that in Shakespeare, one of the most horrendous images he can ...

... . Once they are in love, Antony's proximity or distance directly affects Cleopatra's brilliance, 1.1 .9 - 10. Their attraction takes them beyond all established bounds, to find out new heaven, new earth, 1.1 .17. When Antony renounces Rome for Egypt, his words are made to unknowingly prefigure the worldwide destruction this will cause. Let Rome in Tiber melt, and the wide arch Of the ranged empire fall! 1.1 .33 - 34. To him, Kingdoms are clay, 1.1 .35, or ground covered by floods, and of Cleopatra's passions, it is said sarcastically, but with unknowing truth We cannot ...
93. Chronology And Cosmic Catastrophism [Books]
... archaeological stratigraphy on many sites of Eurasia, can only be the result of catastrophes and events which were not provoked by man's action.6 2. C. F. A. Schaeffer presumes that the catastrophes which caused the end of civilizations in Eurasia originated in devastating earthquakes which shook the world. He mentions that many sites show that the destructions have been contemporary with `climatic changes, which seem to have brought about transformations in the occupation and the economy of the country.7 Schaeffer does not seem to have been struck by the connection between those two important contemporaneous events: earthquakes and climatic changes. As we have previously seen, those two events are closely connected with cosmic ...

... of the "blue" level in the third millennium, and the city of the "red" level, on the basis of its scarabs, he ascribed to the Middle Kingdom, a change of eight or nine hundred years. This "red" city had a tremendous wall and a palace that came to an end in a violent destruction. The "green" city was assigned to the ninth century, as the work of Hiel the Israelite. As a result of this new assignment, "in the time of Joshua Jericho was but a heap of ruins on which, perchance, a few single hovels stood".(3 ) This means that the Israelites under ...
95. Catastrophism and Anthropology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... findings of natural science and to adopt them in their research. Collective reactions to natural catastrophes Natural catastrophes do not necessarily lead to collective responses in form of catastrophe games or rituals. In many cases, the scope of the disaster is limited and the disaster agent is clearly identified. However, if a natural catastrophe results in extreme devastation and destruction, or if the agent of destruction is unknown, the disaster can prove to be a traumatic experience which triggers post-disaster collective reactions. These activities stem from the desire of communities struck by catastrophe to influence and pacify the agents of destruction. Furthermore, expressive (and in most cases violent) responses are triggered by collective anger and tension ...
96. Abraham to Hezekiah: An Archaeological Revision Part I [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... years to work out. Velikovsky will be remembered as the first to see the need, and for initiating the huge task in this direction. Because his approach focuses on identifying historical synchronisms, Velikovsky has made no systematic attempt to redate the archaeological ages. Although he has suggested that the end of the Early Bronze Age be synchronized with the destruction of the cities of the plain (Genesis 19), and that the end of the Middle Bronze Age be synchronized with the conquest of Canaan by the Israelites, he has produced very little evidence to support this scheme.(2 ) Donovan Courville, on the other hand, has paid more attention to the archaeological data and has ...
97. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Two [Books]
... mid second millennium BC or the Earth-Mars encounters of the ninth to seventh centuries BC. Collective amnesia thus has a great deal to answer for, particularly in the case of the Mars encounters, which terminated, remember, only 200 years before Herodotus wrote his "Histories"! On WIC p.225 V refers to Herodotus's version of the destruction of the army of Sennacherib by mice, and again on WIC p.297, where he explains the link between the mice of Herodotus and the blast' of Ginzberg's angel (p .41- 2) thus: "Apparently the atmosphere of the celestial body that appeared in the darkness was illuminated, and took on the elongated ...
98. Syria and Ugarit [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Velikovsky identifies as Hazael.8 The problem cannot be solved that easily, unfortunately. When the most likely revised Egyptian andHittite dates 9 are related back to Biblical data it is clear that Hazael (Azaru?) outlived Mursilis. Before determining the time of Hazael's demise the problem of Ugarit must be addressed. By placing the complete and final destruction of Ugarit at 855,10 Velikovsky has created a series of problems. Having disposed of the concept that Shalmaneser III of Assyria could have played any part in Ugarit's end, we can begin to solve the problem. For the moment I will regard Azaru of Amurru as a separate individual from Hazael of Damascus. In noting that Nikmed ...
... habitable globe, is partly, says Lawrence, the result of physical constitution, and partly of the mental prerogative of man. If he did not possess the most enduring and flexible corporeal frame, his arts would not enable him to be the inhabitant of all climates, and to brave the extremes of heat and cold, and the other destructive influences of local situation.! Yet, notwithstanding this flexibility of bodily frame, we find no signs of indefinite departure from a common standard, and the intermarriages of individuals of the most remote varieties are not less fruitful than between those of the same tribe.

... Site Destructions and Discontinuities in the Bronze Age Dr. Elizabeth Chesley Baity Our first speaker, whom we are very privileged to have, is a guest speaker from the United States, and it is Dr. Elizabeth Chesley Baity. Chesley Baity has studied anthropology and archaeology for many years and she has a Ph.D . in Anthropology from the University of North Carolina, and many of us may have heard of her already for an extremely important paper she published in 1973, called Archeo-Astronomy and Ethno-Astronomy So Far. This was a 60-page review of archaeo-astronomy and it was almost the first definitive work on this subject, and it promulgated the very use of the term "archaeo-astronomy ...
