331. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... why the Glasgow chronologists ignored the Late Bronze variation of Velikovsky, events that could perhaps have been shoe-horned into his 8th century Mars cycle of catastrophes. The idea was that it was necessary to create a revised chronology which was absolutely independent of catastrophism. A late Bronze Age upheaval independent of invading Assyrian hordes etc. creates problems. The site destructions are needed as a base line for military sieges, great battles and the sacking of cities so graphically described in Assyrian hyperbole. By recognising natural disaster as an agency they would have had to abandon human parallels and the populist picture of armies storming through Syria and Palestine, looting and burning. The idea of revising chronology would have seemed ...

332. The Birth and Death of Memory [Books] [de Grazia books]
... . He is told that it has done so before, with terrible consequences. The memory is already excited. Calendars are studied and worked over. Oracles are consulted. All group efforts are mobilized to control the menace: rituals of subservience and devotion; the stricter punishment of any suspected deviants in all areas of law and conduct; the destruction of enemies if they can be promptly engaged; the sacrifice of more and more valuable properties and persons. Relentlessly the menace approaches. The sky is full of lights, shapes and turbulence. The Earth begins to respond - to live, to move, to smoke, to blow up strong winds, to shriek, to take fire ...

... catastrophe. It is evident in their monuments and the earlier they are the more prevalent it was. It might be explained by an ancient tradition which said that the gods fled to Egypt to escape Set or Typhon, for if this were the case, and the founders of the land by the Nile were aware of the fearful chaos and destruction which happened in the North, it is natural that they would live in terror lest a similar fate might befall them despite their precautions. Fear of sudden extinction is not unknown to those of the present generation when at any moment of the day or night immense bombs might, and did, sow wide destruction over great areas, so ...

... as flat as a pancake, is really amazing. In a few years' time, taking into account the rapid rising of the sea level, there is nothing to prevent London north and south, east and west from being drowned. If a tidal wave should be raised in the North Sea nothing could avoid a great flood with a destruction in life and property too appalling to contemplate, and the lower the resisting level of the Embankment the greater the apprehension. There seems to be little doubt but that Roman London was drowned, probably in the period between AD 457 and 596, during which time Londinium disappeared from human ken, and some believe that the streets were deserted ...

... be the ancient Pylos of which Homer sang, were uncovered. According to legend, Nestor, its aged king, fought in the Trojan War. Carl W. Blegen, the excavator of both Troy and Pylos, assigned absolute dates to a burned layer at the site of Hissarlik in Northwestern Turkey, which he assumed to represent the Greek destruction of King Priam's Troy, and to the palace of Nestor, also destroyed by fire. The absolute dates were furnished by Mycenaean pottery in and under both destructions, and as noted above, the pottery dates come from Egypt, so that if Velikovsky is correct and the Egyptian dates are centuries too old, then so are the dates ...

... ' Apadana in Persepolis. It would be interesting to know the form of their beards and skirts in that picture. Emmet then claims that no Persian age material has been found in the excavations of Babylon, in particular, no evidence of any major rebuilding of Babylon after that of Nebuchadrezzar has been found. In his synchronisation all the later destructions of Babylon during the Persian era are dated before Nebuchadrezzar, allowing Alexander to conquer the city built by Nebuchadrezzar. Emmet concluded by taking the opportunity to make a clear statement that, in his view, the middle-Assyrian kings were called Medes, so Assurnasirpal II, his son Shalmaneser III, and his sons, Assur-da-in-applaiddin (Sardanapulus) and ...

... pillar of smoke and fire moved in the sky. Velikovsky wondered: Does any Egyptian record of a similar catastrophe exist? He found the answer in an obscure papyrus stored in Leiden, Holland-the lamentations of an Egyptian sage, Ipuwer. As in the Exodus account, the complaints of the Egyptian sage spoke of rivers turning to blood and the destruction of the land. "Plague is throughout the land. Blood is everywhere," bewailed Ipuwer. "Men shrink from tasting, human beings thirst after water... That is our water! That is our happiness! What shall we do in respect thereof? All is ruin... The towns are destroyed.. ...

338. Aphrodite Urania [Journals] [Aeon]
... [44] There is good reason to think that Diodorus' account preserves archetypal motifs of great significance, as the mourning goddess' habit of wandering around with flowing hair forms a recurring feature in ancient myth. The Greek Electra, for example, is said to have loosed her hair and streamed across heaven as a comet while lamenting the destruction of Troy. Electra's plight is recounted as follows: "But after the conquest of Troy and the annihilation of its descendants...overwhelmed by pain she separated from her sisters and settled in the circle named artic, and over long periods she would be seen lamenting, her hair streaming. That brought her the name of comet ...

339. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Noah Kramer's discussion of several "weeping goddess" texts from ancient Sumer is highly recommended. He has noted that after the political catastrophe with the fall of the Ur III Dynasty in Sumer, there appear a number of texts with a grieving goddess who is sorrowful, tender and compassionate. Most of these are rather ordinary-looking compositions, bemoaning the destruction of cities by the invading armies of Elam and the Su-people. However, here and there one catches glimpses of the extraordinary: the invasions took place on the background of raging winds, a scorching fire, and with rivers "dried up". There is one text that appears to tell of a fallen meteor that had turned the ...

... their characteristic accompanying features", but is happy to leave them out of the further action, accepting them, presumably, as no more than the excuse the ancients needed to write a poem about the events following (8 ). The parallel passage which he brings in, and which all agree relates to the ancient legends of periodic world destruction, is used to corroborate his conclusions by its similarity to the main extract. We will pass quickly over his treatment of the Books of Sibyl: the following samples of his comments on the text will serve to give some insight into his method and approach.
