61. SKY LINKS [Quantavolution Website]
... the storm god Zas. Anu had previously driven out Alalu, the first king of heaven. At Ugarit, on the Asian shore opposite Cyprus, the succession was El, a god with characteristics of a bull; Baal, son of El, the 'rider of the clouds'; and Hadad, god of lightning and the thunderbolt. Hadad, can mean 'The Torch', from Greek das, daidos, torch. The brothers and sisters of Zeus were Poseidon, Hades, Hestia, Demeter and Hera. The snake or dragon figures largely in world mythology, and calls for further study before we can proceed. 'Chronos', which means 'time,' in classical Greek, was a primary cosmic figure, who was personified as a winged snake with many heads. The Babylonian monster Tiamat was a many-headed dragon, according to some reports. It is possible that it resembled a goat. In the Bible, Rahab and Leviathan are serpents, enemies of Yahweh, who destroyed them. "Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength; thou brakest the ...
62. The Demands of the Saturnian Configuration Theory [SIS C&C Review $]
... toward Earth during a solar eclipse [107. However I am hard pressed to understand how he can reconcile this explanation with his own conviction that the world axis went through a whirling motion. The Entwined Serpents As stated above, one aspect of Thornhill's postulate that fits well with the mytho-historical record is that magnetic fields tend to twist Birkeland currents into 'ropes', making the structure appear like entwined snakes. This is important because, among other things, the cosmic pillar was often described as having the form of a serpent or celestial dragon [108. As already noted, Talbott, keeping to his theory that the axis was actually a stream of debris raining down on Earth from the Saturnian configuration (Saturn itself or Mars), recognised the fact that 'the cosmic mountain in many creation epics is presented as a churning, serpentine column rising along the world axis... in several lands the word for 'mountain' is the same as the word for 'serpent' or 'dragon', though our natural world offers no basis for the equivalence' [109. ...

... and Earth. If the present author's theory of lunar fission were postulated, then the composition, distribution and occurrence of the specified forms of tektites would be consonant with the event. I think that legendary streams of cosmic arrows shot by the gods upon hapless but offensive mankind might refer to the glassier kinds of fall-out. Tektites resemble somewhat obsidian, a popular igneous stone for fabricating arrowheads. Tektites may fall like showers of needles, or arrows, or as arrowheads in size, weight and hardness. The same tektites are called "Dragon Pearls" in China. Carter Sutherland in 1973 traced dragon art in China back to its apparent origins around 1500 B. C [22. That reinforcements of the horrendous (but sometimes beneficent "Lucky Dragon") image have been supplied by various comets through the ages was documented by Dwardu Cardona (1975) [23. Invariably the Chinese dragon is chasing a "chuh," or globe, or sphere, and "chuh" also means "pearl". "Huoh chuh" is "fiery sphere" and ...
64. THE LATELY TORTURED EARTH: PART II: EXOTERRESTRIAL DROPS: 10.Metals, Salt and Oil [Quantavolution Website]
... of high-grade material. In the Ural area there is Gora-Blagodat, the 'Blessed Mountain, 'an iron ore mountain 520 feet high, situated in a plain. In Russia too is the Wyssokaya Gora, a deposit of rich magnetite ore, littered over a strip 40 miles long by 9 miles wide." [14 As with iron, so with other metals: many legends have them falling from heaven. The Chinese sky dragon's "breath descends as a rain of water or of fire. Gold is the congealed breath of a White Dragon, but a Purple Dragon's spittle turns into balls of crystal; glass is regarded as solidified dragon's breath." (The tektite allusion is plain). "The dragons of mythology are often described (among the Teutons, for example) as guardians of hoards and givers of wealth." The dragons are wise in metallurgy [15. Donnelly says the same. He describes "Beowulf, when destroyed by the midnight monster, rejoicing to think that his people would receive a treasure, a fortune by the monster's death. ...
65. Thoth Vol. IV, No. 1 Jan 15, 2000 [Thoth Website]
... was a visible entity rather than a deduced abstraction. This was so much so that, in some cases, the axis was even pictured as a ladder reaching to the Saturnian sun. Amy: Cardona mentioned that he finds it difficult to reconcile a the whirling motion of the axis with Suhr's interpretation of the cosmic pillar as the cone-shaped shadow which the moon sends to the Earth during a solar eclipse. CARDONA: THE ENTWINED SERPENTS... the cosmic pillar was often described as having had the form of a serpent or celestial dragon.... And, as [Talbott continues to inform us, "in several lands the word for 'mountain' is the same as the word for 'serpent' or 'dragon,' though our natural world offers no basis for the equivalence.' For examples, Talbott offers the following: 'In Mexico, Nahuatl _can_ means 'serpent' but also 'mountain'... and [the Egyptian Set is the primordial serpent or dragon, but _set_ also means 'mountain," and '[ the ancient Sumerian dragon ...
66. Enheduanna and the Goddess Inanna [SIS C&C Review $]
... Earth, 3. Hierodule of An (you) of all the great ornaments, where An is the heaven god, the chief deity of the Sumerian pantheon. The word 'hierodule' could perhaps be better understood as 'queen-consort': thus 'hierodule of An' would be consistent with Inanna's well-known role as the 'queen of heaven'. There is nothing particularly unusual here, but from line 9 on there is a change of mood and Enheduanna begins to portray Inanna as goddess of the storm and of destruction: 9. Like a dragon you have deposited venom on the land 10. When you roar at the earth like Thunder, no vegetation can stand up to you. 11. A flood descending from its mountain, 12. Oh foremost one, you are the Inanna of heaven and earth! 13. Raining the fanned fire down upon the nation, Here we see the first signs of something out of the ordinary. The goddess is likened to a dragon. Although the Sumerian pantheon consists of scores of deities only one other, Ninurta, is similarly ...
... . By striking Gamera with a giant needle, like a parody of the great thunderbolts exchanged between the head and tail of the Venus-Comet, Monster X wounds the turtle unto death and begins his systematic destruction of the city. Gamera, however, revives, reengages the monster in battle, and emerges victorious to receive the plaudits of his grateful admirers. From all this, it would also seem that we are viewing a reenactment of the ancient struggle between Ormazd and Ahriman, Zeus and Typhon, Quetzalcoatl and Texcatlipoca, Michael and the Dragon. As though imitating the Angel of the Apocalypse when he bound the Dragon in chains, the good turtle defeats his opponent by wrapping him up in strands of hardened saliva. And the people adore their new god, and thank him for saving them from the evil one. The interpretation of the events described above acquires relevant support from a most unusual quarter. In a recent publication (1974) dealing with the mystical origins of Nazism, Jean-Michel Angebert made the following cogent remarks: Man's suffering is explained essentially by the fact ...

On the cave-walls of Australia, the ancestors of the stone age tribes of today drew figures that appear to describe Venus [22. One depicts an owl-like creature with hands, feet, feathers, owl-tail, owl-eyes, and owl-head. It is painted in ocher. (It is doubtful that there were owls in pre-colonial Australia.) Figure 32. THE IMPERIAL CHINESE DRAGON ROBES. The Kang Hsi emperor (1662-1722) wearing the traditional dragon robes, (The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Rogers Fund, 1942.) Another painting shows a serpent-woman between whose hands is arched what is probably a lightning-bolt. And still another reveals a person called "Thunderman" who holds a lightning bolt in his hands. In China, the classical "Lucky Dragon," which was carried in the most beautiful and ornate fashion on the robes of the Emperor (see Figure 32) has been traced back to ...
