... From "Mankind in Amnesia" © 1982 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Planet Gods The agitation and trepidation preceding global upheavals, the destruction and despair that accompanied them and the horror of possible repetition all caused a variety of reactions, at the base of which was the need to forget, but also the urge to emulate. Astrologers and stargazers, as well as soothsayers, divined; conquerors excelled in wanton and cruel devastation, invoking and imitating planetary models. Prophets and seers exhorted and priests propitiated. Astronomy became the dominant occupation of the sages of the past in Mexico, in Assyro-Babylonia and elsewhere- precisely because of the cataclysmic events that took place. ...

... kosmos (the orderly arrangement of the inhabited world surrounded by regularly moving heavenly bodies); redefinitions of divinity; and theories of the natural processes, constantly in operation, by which both kosmos and divinity are to be understood. It also included explanations of phenomena most men deemed terrifying: thunder, lightning, earthquakes, eclipses, and periodic destruction of the kosmos itself. It set about to explain these phenomena in terms of the same elemental processes (transformations of water, rarefaction and condensation of air, separating out of fire, air, water and earth, periodic reabsorption of these elements into a state of dynamic equilibrium) as it invoked to explain the orderly arrangement of the ...

' Before quitting the subject of Fire, I should like to put on record the speculation that we map perhaps dimly discern the invention of explosives (which came at a very late period to be used as destructives in human warfare) as being evolved with slowest graduation out of the earliest fireworks used in the archaic, and still in the modern, Chinese rites, especially those of the spring-tide New-year.

204. The Velikovsky Affair [Books] [de Grazia books]
... the work of Velikovsky. However, it would appear that the specialists' functions in the Velikovsky case were primarily to proclaim their competence and to disperse the vulgar masses who claimed to see revelations of value in Velikovsky's writings. Instead of specialism being used as a positive weapon of analysis, it tended to be used as a negative weapon of destruction: Anything un-narrow must be bad. ' Professor Boring wrote in an article on unorthodoxies of science that agreement by trained scientists is the critical determinant of truth [8 ]. His theory, itself unorthodox, and not part of the rationalistic model, was used to show why Velikovsky was wrong even by those scientists who were operating in ...

... his work as director of the French archaeological mission to Ras Shamra between 1929 and 1970. Here he unearthed a rich Canaanite town of the Late Bronze Age, which he identified as ancient Ugarit. In successive campaigns between 1929 and 1939, earlier levels were excavated, showing that the site had been occupied throughout the Bronze Age until its final destruction around the transition from the Late Bronze to the Iron Ages, conventionally dated c.1200 BC. Moreover, large numbers of clay tablets came to light, written in a hitherto unknown cuneiform script, which was later discovered to be an alphabetic script used for a Semitic language closely akin to Hebrew and Phoenician. The archives, which ...

... ,(17) the living Germanic Saturn.(18) Of especial note is the fact that the Fuhrer's favorite artist was one Franz von Stuck; and in a terrifying painting titled Die wilde Jagd (Wild Chase), von Stuck "caught the spirit of the Teutonic legend of Wotan the mad hunter, the personification of death and destruction, who rides forth at night leaving horror in his wake. The huntsman in von Stuck's picture bears an uncanny likeness to Adolf Hitler. There is the dark brown hair with the famous forelock over the left temple, the brooding eyes, the large nose, the memorable little mustache. A blood-red cape swirls in the wind, and ...

... his pursuit of Merodach Baladan, capturing and destroying his Sealand City of Dur Iakin. The details of year 15 (there are none for year 14) show contact with Ispabara, the country of Ellipi and by inference the country of Karalli. If we now return to the closing years of the above Limmu Lists we find reference to the destruction of Dur Iakin, a quiet year ( 'the gods were in their temples') and a comment about Karalli. It would appear that the quiet year in the Limmu extract is the reason why the non-event' year 14 is assumed. Blind faith in the dates in this list can lead to seduction. The most seductive date ...

... souls of the Assyrians but not their bodies. An analysis is contained in Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision (230-41) in several fine passages. The grotesque incident was coincidental with several other documentable events around the world, and with a probable interruption in the Earth's movement. As happens when a mega-force is operating, one force incites another: the destruction might have been occasioned by gas and "celestial fire" acting together. A charged gas would have descended, possibly lured by the concentration of metal weaponry and myriad campfires. The gas cloud would have sent an electrical leader to the camp grounds and the subsequent exchange of potentials would have killed the Assyrian host. Sennacherib the king escaped ...

According to a myth in the Book of Enoch (Ixv. i) which is supposed to have been taken from an otherwise lost Apocalypse of Noah, Noah saw in those days that the earth was sinking into the waters and that its destruction was nigh. And he arose and went to the end of the earth and cried aloud to his grandfather Enoch, saying: Hear me! And tell me what is the matter with the earth that it should be so fatigued and shaken, lest I perish with it for want of knowledge. The reply which Enoch gave is not ...

The Nazis believed (as Hitler said) that the state had a special mission' [3 ] - which I feel was to cleanse and rule the world prior to (or in conjunction with) an End-Time paroxysm involving world destruction, allowing a new Aryan man to appear and rule in an Aryan Age which would be the Final Age or Apotheosis of Life. One might ask why the Germans in particular were consumed by such a terrible ' Last-Days' vision. The answer lies in the traumas which that embittered nation suffered during the critical period 1918-1933, from the ...
