241. "The Seasons Alter": Catastrophism in A Midsummer Night's Dream [Journals] [Kronos]
... 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 have overborne their continents. (2 .1 . 88-92.) *Insignificant The winds can bring life, or destruction. Here, where the natural order of which Oberon and Titania are a crucial part has been broken by their clash, the result is destructive. The winds have caused great rain clouds to form, which have rained so heavily that there has been wide-spread flooding. It must be pointed out that, in Shakespeare, one of the ...
242. The New Science of Immanuel Velikovsky [Journals] [Kronos]
... of cosmic proportions upon the peoples of the earth might well be likened to a kind of collective psychosis, with the exception of the fact that, since the experience would have been shared by all, the response would be at least approximately similar and, therefore, consensually validated. On every side man would be inundated with a rain of destruction and danger far too great for his normal capacities to cope with. The active mode of response would be immobilized, for there would be virtually nothing that could be done to control or even escape the situation. Only the receptive mode could operate, for the organism, both individual and collective, could only receive what was happening. ...
243. The Many Faces Of Venus - The Planet Venus in Ancient Myth and Religion by Ev Cochrane (Book Review). C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of the Saturn Theory' which is the mainstay of Cochrane's work. This he does in the 6th of 17 chapters for those readers who are not already familiar with the main frame upon which the work of the Saturnists hangs. The introduction points out that the fascination with Venus of ancient cultures everywhere, and their myths which consistently describe the destructive powers of the goddesses associated with this planet, indicate that the behaviour of planet Venus as seen in the heavens a few thousand years ago must have been very different then compared to now. He goes on to consider the universal female, goddess aspect assigned to the planet. She was associated with fertility, beauty and long, flowing ...
244. New Fashions in Catastrophism [Books] [de Grazia books]
... and customs, I have come upon indications of huge conflagrations involving layers of ash deposits that to my mind could never have originated, as the archaeological community tends to believe, from the ravages inflicted upon the settlements by conquerors with torch in hand. Several Strata of the city of Troy (Hisarlik) in ancient Anatolia give evidence of inordinate destruction, sometimes by earthquakes, sometimes by both. Yet there appears to be no great volcano that might have exploded or collapsed nearby. Although perhaps none has done so, it appears to me that a chemical examination of these beds of ashes of the different centers of exploration in Asia Minor and the Middle East might tell us whether hand-set ...
245. The Stratigraphical Chronology of Ancient Israel [Journals] [Aeon]
... (2 ) because "a thorough archaeological research at the oasis of Kadesh Barnea did not even reveal one sherd from the Late Bronze Age or Iron Age I (1550-1000)." (3 ) The "scholarly" date of 1550 for the termination of the preceding Middle Bronze Age ruled out an evaluation of the natural upheavals and military destructions accompanying the shift from Middle to Late Bronze as an environment for the biblical claims in question. The period of Judges, of course, could not remain untouched after the settlement traditions were discredited. Biblically dated to 1450-1012 and described as a pre-iron culture, it is now searched for in Iron Age I strata with a "scholarly" ...
246. Naptha, Part 1 Venus Ch.2 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... fire in the air is extinguished before new supplies of oxygen arrive from other regions. The descent of a sticky fluid which came earthward and blazed with heavy smoke is recalled in the oral and written traditions of the inhabitants of both hemispheres. Popol-Vuh, the sacred book of the Mayas, narrates:(2 ) "It was ruin and destruction . . . the sea was piled up . . . it was a great inundation . . . people were drowned in a sticky substance raining from the sky. . . . The face of the earth grew dark, and the gloomy rain endured days and nights. . . . And then there was a great din of fire ...
247. Artificially Structured Biblical Chronologies [Journals] [SIS Review]
... a period of 290 years. The symbol values of 29' or 58', plus their multiples (but in particular 290' and 580'), when found in the correct context, have a cabbalistic reference to rebirth', renewal' and reconstruction'. Those interpretations are always placed in the context of a previous collapse, destruction or decay. There are some extant Oriental records which use the values of 29' and 58' in that way: e.g ., consider how the neo-Assyrian king Esarhaddon (680-669 BC), when recording his renovation of the temple at Asshur, stated that 580 years earlier it had been renovated by an Assyrian king called ...
248. The Catastrophic Substructure of Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra (Part I) [Journals] [Kronos]
... story's development. 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 call her ...
249. The Curse. Part 2 (Oedipus and Akhnaton) [Velikovsky]
... .. They shall be engulfed in the sea, it shall hide their corpses. They shall not receive the mortuary ceremonies of the righteous .. .. Their sons shall not be put into their places, their wives shall be violated while their eyes see it .. .. They shall belong to the sword on the day of destruction .. .. they shall hunger, without bread, and their bodies shall die." So wrote Amenhotep, son of Hapu, on the wall of his mortuary temple built in the western plain of Thebes, among the mortuary temples of the kings, and he aimed his words against violators of his temple whether motivated by greed ...
... to the south [toward Egypt]. Thick ash falls were later found on Rhodes .. .and on Kos .. .but neither island seems to have been seriously affected by the ash fall." The evidence on the subject thoroughly contradicts Sagan's conclusions about Thera. In Science News an article titled "Ancient Crete: Double Dose Destruction" states, "The Bronze Age eruption of Santorini, roughly between 1200 and 1700 B.C . has been credited with an impressive list of feats. Scholars have tied it tentatively to the plagues during the Exodus from Egypt, to the disappearance of that mysterious realm, Atlantis, and to the demise of the sophisticated Minoan culture ...
