191. The Hermes Connection [Journals] [Aeon]
... ingredient pertaining to the early mythos of Hermes as the persona of the Polar Column. The Myth It is said of Hermes that "his attributes are the most complex and varied of those of any of the major gods." (20) Disregarding his exploits for the moment- of which many are similar to those of Hercules- the etymologies of the name Hermes which have been proposed are equally varied: Some suggest a connection with the Vedic Sarameya, derived from Sarama, god of the storm or of the dawn; others relate Hermes to a Greek word which conveys the idea of movement; still others- thinking of the early representation of the god- suggest the word ...
192. VELIKOVSKY AND OEDIPUS [Journals] [Aeon]
... preserved memory of a spring of Heracles situated beneath the dwelling of Hippolytus. The spring of Oedipus, in our opinion, is analogous to the springs of Ares and Heracles and commemorates the intimate relationship of the planet Mars with the World Pillar. It is the polar location of Mars, in our opinion, which holds the key to the etymology of the name Oedipus. For in addition to the imagery of the spring/fountain, the World Pillar also appears as the god's single-leg. Is it possible that Oedipus received his name from the fact that the planet Mars was associated with the Pillar/leg of Saturn? More than ten years ago David Talbott published his claim that ...
193. "Let There be Light" [Journals] [Kronos]
... or catalogue of stars] bring one more complication into the picture, but it is one which leads, finally, to the decisive insight. Differing from those of Aratus and from Ptolemy, it counts Canopus [Suhayl] in the constellation Eridanus [which borders on Argo] instead of Argo . . . Eridanus, lacking a decent Greek etymology, finds a reasonable derivation from Eridu, as was proposed by Kugler, Eridu being the seat of Enki-Ea . . ." (3 ) Enki-Ea, as we have seen, was only another name for Saturn.(4 ) L.M . Greenberg and W.B . Sizemore have elsewhere shown that the ancients often duplicated ...
194. Jerusalem -- City of Venus [Journals] [Kronos]
... 15) In any event, the name of the city has been a source of considerable discussion in its own right. The common notion that Jerusalem means "city of peace"(16) has now been generally rejected and Burrows, for example, considers "the traditional interpretation, city of peace, ' . . . as inaccurate etymologically as it is inappropriate historically."(17) [* The name Urusalima has now been read on clay tablets discovered in the ruins of the ancient Canaanite city of Ebla, dated to ca 2250 B.C . That date may be open to question. however. At any rate it is difficult at this time to judge ...
195. Greek History Begins in the Sixth Century B.C. [Journals] [Aeon]
... lasted not much longer than some hundred years. Consequently, the social and political history of early Greece developed in a much faster way as generally considered. Even reports about the legendary legislator of Athens, Solon (conventionally dated between 640 and 520 B.C .) , still require careful separation between fabulous and historical content. For his etymologically remarkable name could indicate an interrelation with obvious astral deities/lawgivers such as Lycurgos and Dracon. (73) Chronographical research has shown that the time-reckoning of Greek states and city-states according to annual dates (horography), which was still unknown to Herodotus and Thucydides, begins not until the middle of the fifth century B.C . ...
196. Sothis and the Morning Star in the Pyramid Texts [Journals] [Aeon]
... . Neugebauer & R. Parker, op. cit., Vol. I, p. 24. 111. The most informative treatment of this motive is that of D. Talbott, "The Ship of Heaven," AEON I:3 (1988), pp. 57-97. 112. M. Gilula, "An Egyptian Etymology of the Name of Horus?," JEA (1978), p. 264. Spell 148 of the Coffin Texts, similarly, has Isis say of Horus: "I ask that you shall be always in the suite of Re of the horizon in the prow of the primeval bark for ever and ever." 113. ...
197. "Worlds in Collision": Reviews and Reviewers [Journals] [Aeon]
... scientific books?" The answer is very simple- and very distressing. The book claims to prove scientifically and historically some of the more preposterous of the Old Testament miracles...To "prove" them, [Velikovsky] deliberately rejects or readates or rearranges many facts of history and astronomy, and what he does to and with etymology, anthropology and folklore is sheer prostitution of these sciences... "Worlds in Collision" is a natural for today. It is Buck Rogers out of Fundamentalism. It "proves" the Bible miracles "scientifically." Well, it is certainly a big enough lie to stretch even the already distended gullets of the credulous Science-Fiction ...
198. Introducing Anomalistics: A New Field of Interdisciplinary Study [Journals] [Kronos]
... a word of caution is in order. Because both the term "debunker" and the term "cultist" are highly emotive, it would be easy- though ill advised- to assume that all debunking is unjustified and every cult a fraud. Most advertising, for example, merits at least partial debunking. And cults are, both etymologically and ethnologically, wellsprings of culture, which includes the benefits as well as the burdens of the various ways of life that we have inherited from our ancestors. Nonetheless, I believe that, in most cases, neither reductionism nor mystification is the best response to anomalous phenomena. What anomalists need, I think, is the ability to ...

200. Forum [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the extant versions of Manetho state, was the second element of the name Hyk-sos (" shepherd-kings"), whereas modern Egyptological wisdom has it that the second element must represent khasut (" foreign countries"). Certainly no such term as hikau-shasu occurs in Egyptian, but if the Shasu were the remnants of the Amalekites then perhaps Manetho's etymology was inspired by a genuine tradition that the Shasu (Arabs, shepherds) had once invaded Egypt as the hikau khasut - "Hyksos". C & AH Seminar Following the success of their Seminar in 1982, Catastrophism & Ancient History are to hold another early in December 1983. Among the speakers will be Dr Donovan Courville and Marvin ...
