51. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . Venus, means "newcomer" in Latin. Instead, he writes: "Cicero, speaking of Venus, explained the origin of the name thus: Venus was so named by our countrymen as the goddess who "comes" [venire] to all things. '" (Note that Dr Velikovsky does not even explicitly endorse the etymology.) Unless Mr Lowery can refer me to other published passages in which Dr Velikovsky "frequently" asserts, or at least asserts even once, that the name Venus comes from the Latin venire, he ought to amend his own article accordingly, more particularly in the opening paragraph and in the first half of the concluding sentence. ...

... island of Ogugia, the navel of the Universe-Ocean8. If this island, like most mythic "islands" in all cosmogonies, be figurative of the Earth, then we ought to find in the words plough-tree (? Earth-axis), and Earth also of course meant field, tract of land. If this be any approximation to the real etymology, then the names would have to range themselves under the same head. The nombril of white stone in the temple at Delphoi was that which is called by the Delphians the Omphalos," wrote Pausanias ix, 16) "and which is made of white stone, is, as they say, the middle point of the whole ...

53. Apollo and the Planet Mars [Journals] [Aeon]
... derivation hardly seemed satisfactory. W. Max Muller, for example, a leader of the solar school of mythology and firm believer in the solar nature of Apollo, observed: "The ancients derived Apollon from apollonai in the sense of destroyer... Phonetically there is nothing to be said against it. But we cannot decide on an etymology by means of phonetic laws only. The meaning also has a right to be considered. Now we have no right to say that from the beginning Apollon was a destructive god." (7 ) With this declaration the clear testimony of Homer and Aeschylus was thrust aside, and Muller proceeded to derive Apollo from a Sanskrit form * ...

... dealt right side up) synergistic power. As long as the two steeds of the Chariot (often depicted as black and white, male and female, yin and yang) remain yoked together, the Chariot (just like the plough) will go forward and work effectively. Now for a synchronicity. The words yoga and yogi are related etymologically to the English yoke, which derives etymologically from the Latin iunctio, which, when placed together with the prefix con, becomes coniunctio, Latin for conjunction.(23) Therefore, the lotus or yoga position in which we find so many gods depicted is etymologically linked to the conjunction. The synchronicity? The plough is one of ...

... last being a direct link with the Kabeiroi, whose large eyes we must riot forget here. As to "Wheel-Eyes" above, Hesiod (Theog. 144) or some interpolater brought the meaning `round-eyed' out of but is it not " Eye of the kuklos (or wheel)" that is to be concluded from this patent etymology, rather than any other meaning? Dr. O. Schrader says Zeus is an expression of a primeval stamp, that it equals Kuxaor Aros, and means `broad-eyed sky. ' This rendering seems wondrous poetical, but when you ask it for a meaning it refuses to reply. Wide seeing Zeus seems plain enough. I. ...

It has long been a truism in comparative religion that it is difficult to comprehend the original nature of a deity without an adequate etymology of his or her name. Alternatively, it would seem to follow that once some understanding of a deity's name is achieved, insight has thereby been gained into that particular figure's fundamental nature and original sphere of activity. In the case of the Greek Zeus, to take a well-known example, the relationship of his name to the Indo-European ...
