41. The Misread Record by Isaac Vail [Books]
... did the demonstrative Egyptians put a concealed sun in their pantheon? Then there was Canopus (so like our canopy) whose symbols were the serpent and the water jar, who put out the solar fires, so the legend goes, by pouring out a flood of water through holes in his body. Typhon, also, was a watery dragon who hid Osiris, the sun, and scattered the members of his mutilated body all over the heavens. Endless is the fund of such canopy memorials, and to follow them would take me far afield. Scandinavian Thought. We have seen how the world canopies moved toward the poles. Because they moved thither they lingered there longest and ...
42. A Glance at Compartive Mythology by Isaac Vail [Books]
... Skies of Ancient Man Celestial Records of the Orient Eden's Flaming Sword A Glance at Compartive Mythology Golden Age Canopy The Heavens and Earth of Prehistoric Man The Misread Record or The Deluge and its Cause Mythic Mountains The Ring of Truth A Glance at Compartive Mythology Isaac N. Vail "Far away in the twilight time of every people in every clime Dragons and griffins and monsters dire Born of water and air and fire Crawl and wriggle and foam with rage Through dusk, tradition and ballad age" We are so accustomed to think of mythology in its connection with the poetry of the Greeks and Romans that we forget, if indeed we have realized with our poet, that every people in ...
43. Moons, Myths and Man [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... No 1 (Aug 1993) Home | Issue Contents Moons, Myths and Man by H.S . Bellamy (Faber and Faber, 1936) This book appears to remarkably pre-empt both Velikovsky (catastrophe and the use of world wide myths) and Clube and Napier (a giant satellite breaking up in the prehistoric sky and being responsible for dragon and serpent folklore etc). It is a read I recommend to Society members and I wonder to what extent Velikovsky was influenced by catastrophic tomes such as this and others by authors such as Hoerbiger, Vail etc. From Bellamy's use of myth it seems to me that Clube and Napier are much nearer to the truth than Velikovsky, ...
44. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... me permission to publish it and while wishing the Society well in its endeavours, nevertheless adds that he has "never been favourably impressed by Velikovsky's theories, which are at least in violation of the Law of Conservation of Angular Momentum". Perhaps one of our members with scientific expertise may wish to comment. - Ed.) The Flying Dragon Sir, Miss Botley's letter on Bygone Meteorites refers to a picture, of a bolide, represented with a "sort of winged Loch Ness Monster for garnishing". In fact the flying dragon was a powerful and enduring analogy for the bolide itself. The great bolide of 1783, referred to in the same letter, was considered to ...
45. Stonehenge: Neolithic Man and the Cosmos, by John North [Journals] [SIS Review]
... A large portion of the book is taken up by Stonehenge which he claims was a temple aligned to the setting midwinter Sun rather than to the popularised midsummer sunrise. I shall leave somebody else within SIS to evaluate this shift of emphasis, but note that he makes some interesting points about lozenge decoration, alignments and Alexander Thom's megalithic yard. Dragon hill is conical and appears to be artificially flattened on top. It is situated beneath the White Horse and standing there the eye is drawn to the sky above the escarpment. Along the top of the Downs is the Ridgeway long distance path, an ancient route running from Avebury in the west to the Goring Gap and the Chiltern Hills ...
46. The Birth of Vahagn: An Armenian Vision of Celestial Catastrophe? [Journals] [Kronos]
... to both Jupiter and Venus but never to Mars. Later, we find Vahagn as the third deity of the Armenian pantheon after Aramazd (the Iranian Ahura Mazda, father of the gods), and the mother-goddess Anahit.(10) Invoked by the Armenian kings as a god of courage, he was also known as a conqueror of dragons and, indeed, Vishapakhagh "reaper of dragons" is his most common title.(11) But there is yet one aspect to Vahagn which differs from the others and which reveals that the Vahagn just described is- in his capacity of god of war- being assimilated to something else: Vahagn, as already noted by Ananikian ...
47. Thoth Vol I, No. 19: July 16, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... certainly of interest, for example, that the Babylonians employed the phrase "winged star" for the comet. Additionally, as we will see, it is when Venus as soul-bird spreads its wings that the cometary images are most emphatic. FEATHERED SERPENT In our brief list of comet glyphs cited earlier we have also listed the cosmic serpent or dragon, and in Mexico this fascinating theme proves to be crucial. Once the researcher has learned that Mesoamerican stargazers considered a comet to be the ascending heart-soul of a great chief, he can no longer ignore the full range of related symbols: the planet Venus, the rising heart-soul of Quetzalcoatl, is not just portrayed as an ember-like star ...
... : long-haired star (star with flowing locks, mane, tresses, disheveled hair, beard, hairy tail); torch-star (flame, smoke, smoking star, train of fire, ember, spark, or train of sparks); celestial feather (winged star, soul-bird, feathered headdress, shining bird's tail); cosmic serpent, dragon or similar monster. heart-soul of a deceased god-king or great leader rising in the sky. (15) At what point, then, does "coincidence" or a seemingly irrational use of language- comet-terms or glyphs attached to Venus- become an anomaly worth pursuing? Forrest not only sidesteps the implications of parallel, cometary images of Venus in ...

... and the earth quake. Great Priestess, who can soothe your troubled heart? You flash like lightning over the highlands; you throw your firebrands across the earth. Your deafening commandsplits apart great mountains." (40) The Exaltation to Inanna associates the planet-goddess with a rain of fire, flooding, and great devastation: "Like a dragon you have deposited venom on the land, When you roar at the earth like Thunder, no vegetation can stand up to you. A flood descending from its mountain. Oh foremost one, you are Inanna of heaven and earth! Raining the fanned fire down upon the nationDevastatrix of the lands, you are lent wings by the stormyou ...
50. The Celestial Tower [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Leviathan), the cosmic serpent, is portrayed as the ruler of Orkney, whilst other evidence points to the Orkneys as the original setting of the Gorgon/Balor myth. If the plasma pillar emanated from the North Pole, an observer on the headlands of northern Scotland would have seen it as being situated in the archipelago. Since the dragon Lotan is also the same as Ladon, the serpent which entwined itself around the sacred apple tree in the Garden of the Hesperides, this would indicate that the Tree of Life, or World Tree, is another manifestation of the tower. It could be that at certain times the uppermost parts of the plasma pillar put forth great branch-like ...
