131. The Uranians [Books] [de Grazia books]
... now like lowing cattle, flowing over the body of their former restrainer and lord Vritra, to acknowledge Indra as their new lord. And astonishingly, the Waters were pregnant, and their embryo was the Sun."[1 ] All took their place; "the systematization and regulation was known as rita (rite), which means etymologically set in motion' and has the idea in the Rig Veda of cosmic truth or order." The profound meaning of the word "rite" is suddenly apparent here; religious rite is aimed at rehearsing and repeating the original cosmic order so as to support and control it by physical means. I understand Varuna as the original benign ...
132. The Cosmic Origin of the Swastika [Journals] [Aeon]
... , since Zeus Prometheus at Thurii was shown holding a fire-drill". (2 ) Arthur Cook, on the other hand, is of the opinion that, "strictly speaking," the name Prometheus cannot be regarded "as the phonetic equivalent of pramantha", and adds that "it is only by invoking the uncertain aid of popular etymology that we are enabled to set the two side by side". (3 ) Moreover, what Graves calls Zeus Prometheus is actually Zeus Promantheus, whom Cook does tie in with the Sanskrit pramantha, thus strengthening his belief that Zeus is to be, inter alia, considered as a god of the fire-drill. (4 ) Coins ...
133. Night of the Gods: Polar Myths. Rock of Ages [Books]
... "12 Here we must see the central Universe fire. The numerous rocky promontories or places called Scylla, Scylleum, in Greece and Italic, the three Irish Skellig islands off Valentia, and Skull on the Cork coast; the Scilly islands, and so forth, all seem to point to a similar origin for the word, but the etymologists only give us I tear, ' which is not filling. It further seems difficult to keep the Kuanean, or the `wandering' or the `clashing' rocks, or the cliffs of Scylla and Charybdis, separate from the Rock in the legend of the death of Ajax (Aias) (Odyssey iv, 500 etc) ...
134. Thoth Vol IV, No. 1: Jan 15, 2000 [Journals] [Thoth]
... [the] Egyptian Set is the primordial serpent or dragon, but _set_ also means mountain," and'[the] ancient Sumerian dragon .. . was the Kur...but _kur_ also possessed the meaning mountain"...[The Greek] Boreas is the primeval serpent... but etymologists connect the serpent- dragon's name with a primitive _bora_, mountain'." As Suhr tells us: "Among primitive peoples there are signs of the column in the form of a python or dragon rising from the level of the earth to the clouds. ' In fact, Suhr adds that, among the Murngin people ...
135. "Let There Be Light" - A Criticism [Journals] [Kronos]
... beginning God created the heaven and the earth." In Hebrew, the name translated as "God" is "Elohim". I have already shown that Elohim (or El, or Eloah) was one of the ancient names of Saturn. The word translated as "created" is "bara"- but this word has the etymological meaning of "forcing into shape". The word also contains a connotation of violence.(2 ) The idea contained here, therefore, is that Elohim/Saturn forced the Earth into shape violently. It seems then that Creation did not unravel itself peacefully. Among those races which did not preserve their ancestral memories in writing but ...
136. The Two Major Censuses in the Book of Numbers [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... is interesting to note that, in the modern Israeli army, the word alluph is used as the equivalent for colonel. In early days, of course, the eleph or mighty man of valour would have gained his title from the fact that he actually was the captain over a thousand men. But as time went by, the strict etymological meaning of the word would have been forgotten (we have only to look at our own language to see many examples of this) and the word would have been used with a wider meaning- for captain in general, irrespective of the exact number of men under his command. Confusing Usage of Eleph as "Thousands"There are ...
137. The Early Assyrian King List, The Genealogy of the Hammurapi Dynasty, and the "Greater Amorite" Tradition [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... 50]The points of comparison are toponyms: Admah = Adamu AKL 2 Zeboim = Zuabu AKL 11 Bela = Belu AKL 14 A certain Arioch of Ellasar, furthermore, is cited as one of the four kings against five. This Arioch may provisionally be identified with Azarah if "WRH" moon (month) is closer to the original etymology. Ellasar has received various treatments over the years: Larsa al sarri or "city of the King," Til Asurri, "the country of Assyria" and/or "the city of Assur. The connection between Ellasar is explained as a derived form of A LA-SAR, an ideogram denoting the city of Assyria ...
138. Collective Amnesia: A Brief History of the Concept [Journals] [Kronos]
... of collective consciousness";(5 ) and in My Philosophy (1949), it enables Benedetto Croce, a native student of Vico's thought, to conclude "the old and past lives in the new and living."(6 ) Vico's studies were influenced by his Catholic faith and, for his time, a sophisticated approach to etymology. In truth, modern philology, as the term is presently used, probably begins with Vico's New Science. And it is not at all farfetched to identify Vico as the father of modern ethnography. But nothing is of any greater interest for the purposes of the present study than his euhemeristic investigation of myth. The wide occurrence of ...
139. Megalithic Circles and Star Charts [Journals] [SIS Review]
... The fact that they were described as simple structures, erected in the open, might suggest an early date . A number of authors have advanced an Indo-European origin for the Scandinavian mythology, which would place it somewhat in the time period of interest. Palome presents several arguments for assuming Indo-European traditions in Germanic mythology, based on etymological identifications with equivalent Indian, Hittite, and Greek words. A prominent example would be the Aesir who represent the sovereign gods in the Germanic pantheon, the Indo-Iranian Asura sovereign god' and the Hittite hassus king' . O'Brien addresses the legend of Ragnarok (contained in a poem called the Voluspa, which in turn is ...
140. Thoth Vol III, No. 17: Dec 15, 1999 [Journals] [Thoth]
... B. J. F. Lonergan in his book, _Insight_. The Canon of Selection requires a theory to involve sensible, observable consequences. In accord with this, the data of the Saturn Theory are the words, written and spoken, of the myths of all cultures, their ritual and cultural contexts, linguistic associations and etymologies, and the associated artistic expressions such as pictographs, ceramics, and architecture. The Canon of Operations involves an accumulation of insights from observations, applications, and experiments. The Saturn Theory verifies the existence of expected themes from one myth and culture to the next. It modifies the generalization of those themes by the comparative removal of local ...
