51. Our Universe: Unlocking its Mysteries [SIS Internet Digest $]
... simulations of galaxy formation by this mechanism give strong support to the Thornhill hypothesis of the Electric Universe. The now known existence of strong Birkeland currents within galaxies and in intergalactic space suggest that galaxies and the stars within them are formed by the electromagnetic z-pinch effect. If they can be formed in this way, Scott ventures that it is a minor extrapolation to hypothesize that these same stars are also powered by this mechanism. The Ancients Said Venus Had "Flowing Hair": Might the flowing hair of Venus, or the "fiery dragon" (as that planet is depicted in many ancient myths and drawings) actually have been the glowing ions of twisting Birkeland currents (or "stringy things" as mainstream astronomers call them)? Pictographs showing ladder formations and tales of a "Ladder to Heaven" or "Jacob's Ladder" might well be based on sightings of Birkeland currents and plasma instabilities such as those Peratt has seen in his plasma laboratories. It is interesting to note how often a sphere (planet?) is included in pictures of the Chinese dragon ...

52. A Maya Record of Two Thousand Years? [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... indicated locations for explanatory glyphs. About 125 of these have escaped mutilation, and some of them represent flood, drought, dark days, evil, and woe to mankind-- expressions which can apply to catastrophes. The picture on page 74 is clearly related to cataclysm and is referred to by some authors as "the catastrophe picture." Thompson (1972, 88.89) believes it represents destruction of he world by flood. According to him "the painting depicts floods of water pouring earthward from the open mouth of a celestial dragon with subsidiary streams flowing from sun and moon cartouches suspended from the underside of the creature's body." It is strange he did not comment on the solid objects with which the downpour is charged. Their appearance is unique in the representation of water in the Codex, and they might have been intended to represent meteorites. Just below the dragon is shown an old goddess whom Thompson attempts to identify, but comments further only that "A day sign, Eb, perhaps with coefficient 5, is set in the water flowing from ...

53. The Worship of Lightning [Thunderbolts Website]
... two authors --a revolutionary synthesis of comparative mythology and the newly-discovered "Electric Universe". The Monograph includes an hour-long DVD introducing various aspects of the Electric Universe explained by members of the Thunderbolts Group. More Information Book Synopsis Read Chapter One Order Link Dec 06, 2005 The Worship of Lightning Examples of the kongo, the Japanese name of the objects, represent the ancient thunderbolt of the gods. In the old religion of Vedic India, the vajr was the powerful thunderbolt wielded by the storm god Indra in his momentous combat with the dragon Vritra. Such myths, of course, were rife in the ancient world, but what is striking is that Buddhist cultures still worship the lightning today on a massive scale, with entire sects and branches of theory devoted to its study. The above are modern examples of the kongo, the Japanese name of the object, as the central object of veneration in temples in modern-day Kyoto and Kagawa, both in Japan. Ancient mythological traditions are full of sacred weapons employed in the battles of the gods with demons and dragons. ...

55. Pense [SIS C&C Review $]
... significance by a specialist in celestial mechanics dispose of one of the main objections to Velikovsky's astronomical theories and offer further support. Dr M. M. Nieto/ Dr C. J. Ransom: THE TITIUS-BODE LAW AND THE EVOLUTION OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM- If the Titius-Bode Law is real, then recurrent large-scale changes in the solar system are unlikely to have occurred. Dr Ransom's response shows that a slight modification of the ad hoc first term of the equation equally well describes the solar system without Venus. Dr Carter Sutherland: CHINA'S DRAGON- Traces the mythological motifs associated with the dragon to their origin about 1500 BC in a description of a fiery cometary body. Dr W. T. Plummer: VENUS CLOUDS: TEST FOR HYDROCARBONS- The infra-red reflection spectra of the Venus clouds do not support the presence of hydrocarbons, in the view of this writer. Dr Wilfrid Francis: VELIKOVSKY ON THE FORMATION OF COAL- The author of a standard work on coal presents extracts from a new edition in which be accepts Velikovsky's catastrophic explanation for many coal deposits.

58. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... the identity of Pekharti (Pi-khiroti) with the biblical Pi-ha-kiroth, I can find no foundation for linking the flying slaves, which are familiar to us from the Bible, with the evil-doers engaged in battle by Pharaoh Shou at the Place of the Whirlpool. The term Pi-khiroti appears in the text of the shrine some pages before the battle with the evil-doers is narrated, the names of the respective pharaohs are different and it is stated in the text expressively that the campaign was undertaken to rescue the sungod Ra from the children of the dragon Apep, the evil-doers from the red-country who invaded Egypt. It might be of interest in this connection, that I encountered by chance another source describing evidently the same happenings. Heinrich Brugsch ? ? Die neue Weltordnung: Nach Vernichtung des sndigen Menschengeschlechtes ? (Verlag S. Calvary und Co., Berlin 1881) brings the original transliterated text, the German translation and the transformation into fluent speech. Amongst the significant passages there are for instance: Und es sprach die Majestt des Lichtgottes Ra: ? Wohlan! Jene sind geflohen ...

... . C., who was not only Quetzalcoatl as savior, but was also a frightful all-destroying god to the Mexicans. We shall not proceed much farther here. A study of reversals of letters might be rewarding (I wrote "rewording" and scratched it out). Thus I think that the word "Mkl" who is Michael the Archangel and a Hebrew identity for Cometary Venus, may also be "Mlkh" in reverse, who is Moloch, the godfigure dreaded by the ancient Hebrews. And so Python (the dragon killed by Apollo) and Phaeton (the solar figure who was struck down by Zeus to save the burning up of the Earth) and Typhon (the monster dragon also struck down by Zeus) who is tied closely to the cometary-Venus of the mid-second millennium, and who is also Typhoon, the storms of South Asia and Hurracan, the great wind god of the original Americans. But, to refer to The Disastrous Love Affair of Moon and Mars. Typhon is also the Pallas portion of Pallas Athene, the great Athenian ...

... night-rider"), a common name of witches. (48) Witches, Dragons, and Comets The archetypal image of the witch is that of an old crone flying through the night on her broom with disheveled hair, spreading evil throughout the land. Certainly it is difficult to reconcile this image with the current peaceful movements of the planet Venus. Throughout our investigation, however, we have been open to the possibility that the ancient skies may have been different than our own. Confronted with the goddesses' appearance as a fire-breathing dragon, for example, we suggested as a point of comparison the image of a spectacular comet, one associated in some way with the planet Venus, it being known that comets were compared to dragons thoughout the ancient world. (49) Certain elements of the witches' imagery are also consistent with the appearance of a comet. Thus it is well-known that numerous cultures compared the image of a comet to that of a woman with long-streaming or disheveled hair. In Comet, Carl Sagan observed: A comet suggests flowing tresses. ...
