51. A Fire not Blown [Books]
... electrical from other fires, within individual languages and with trans-linguistic similarities. The object of priestly study was theological electricity. Lightning, magnetism and piezoelectric effects were related in the ancient mind as divine fire. Although Crete was a land of many peoples and dialects, it followed a consistent pattern of ritual settings, and these were akin to the Egyptians. Significantly, high places were known to attract electrical discharges, but on lowlands and on hills wells could be dug and filled with stones that may have come from more electrified sacral ground and been expected to enhance local electrical effects. Lanuguage correlations include proper names, and here it is shown, inter alia, that two kings of ...
52. Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning [Books]
... signs of the Via Solis, whence God, as bow-man, becomes Sagittarius. Hebrew antiquaries have long recognized Enoch as inventor of the Dodecatemory divisions; and both Berosus [Berossus as now written, the Chaldaean historian of about 260 B.C .] and Josephus declare that Abraham was famous for his celestial observations, and even taught the Egyptians. As to this last people, while our twelve figures appear on the Denderah planisphere doubtless from Greek or Roman influence, we have little knowledge as to what was the zodiac of their native astronomy, although it perhaps represented their twelve chief divinities; and Saint Clement tells us that the White, or Sacred, Ibis, Ibis aethiopica ...
53. A Fire not Blown [Books]
... in the earth. The snake was seen in the sky as a dragon, and was associated with radiation and its effects, but it was also a creature living in holes in the ground, and snake tubes were incorporated in Cretan houses where the snake was like the Roman genius, guardian of the household. We have suggested that the Egyptian ka was an electrical aura or halo round a person, especially round the head, the electrical headquarters. It was associated with health and life, and appears in the Greek greeting chaire! chairete! Hail! Raise the ka! [airo = raise]. Chairete is very close to the Hebrew chaya, to live, to ...
54. The Charisma of Moses [Books] [de Grazia books]
... Grazia Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER SIX The Charisma of Moses "To deny a people the man whom it praises as the greatest of its sons is not a deed to be undertaken lightheartedly - especially by one belonging to that people." So goes the first sentence of Sigmund Freud's book on Moses and Monotheism, that views Moses as an Egyptian disciple of Pharaoh Akhnaton, and he continues: "No consideration, however, will move me to set aside truth in favour of supposed national interests."[1 ] If Freud had published his first line in 1980 rather than in 1937, he might perhaps have taken advantage of the reconciliation achieved by the leaders of Egypt and ...
55. The Crescent [Books]
... shall see, there is a distinctive relationship of this revolving crescent to the phases of the archaic "day" and " night"- as well as to many other aspects of ancient cosmography. But let us take the present line of inquiry a little further. Does the equation of the crescent and enclosure occur also in Egypt? The Egyptians (as previously observed) called the enclosure Aten, recorded by the hieroglyph . (In the course of time this symbol evolved into the simplified form , with the enclosed sun dropped out) It is the latter form that generally prevails in later Egyptian art.) In numerous representations of the Aten a crescent forms the lower half of ...
56. The Scenario of Exodus [Books] [de Grazia books]
... From: God's Fire, by Alfred De Grazia Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER TWO The Scenario of Exodus Amidst the escalating terrors of the plagues, the Egyptian government struggled to control the total situation. Boldly exploiting the disasters, Moses and his followers hastened to organize the Exodus. Negotiations proceeded in an ever more tense setting, The antagonist of the God-King Pharaoh Thaoi Thoum was the man Moses. What Moses was really like and what his background was will be portrayed later. In anticipation, here one may consider that Moses was a Hebraic Egyptian raised in a royal household, on the princely level of an adopted son of a princess. He had a named father whom he ...

58. Velikovsky's Sources Volume One [Books]
... comet, the earth's rotation was disturbed and great hurricanes whipped up clouds of cometary dust and cinders so that the light of day was blotted out. Hence plague number 9, the plague of darkness. Finally, as the head of the Venus Comet approached the Earth, tidal forces triggered off great earthquakes that smote' the houses of the Egyptians, and killed off the firstborn'. Hence plague number 10. This interpretation of the 10th plague is definitely the hardest to swallow. In the first place, the Book of Exodus nowhere mentions an earthquake in connection with the death of the firstborn, and V finds it necessary to resort to secondary sources to justify it (see ...
59. The Egyptian Prince Moses [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Proceedings of The Third Seminar of Catastrophism and Ancient History (1986) Home | Issue Contents The Egyptian Prince Moses Charles McDowell Introduction Moses is one historical character about whom much is written but about whom we need still more information. The biblical account in Exodus tells us almost nothing about his first forty years. Indeed, it seems the ancient Jewish writers deliberately distorted his early years for fear the truth about his life at the Egyptian court would cause Jews to abandon cherished concepts of Judaism. The purpose of this paper, therefore, is to begin a restoration of the life of young Moses during the period in which he served the pharaohs of Egypt. The Problem ...
