61. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... , Workshop Vol. 4, No. 2, September 81, has two letters on the Oera Linda Book, which is all Greek to me. But your editorial comment, paragraph 6, on the Vanir of Norse mythology which relates Vanir to Latin venire and suggests this is akin to "Venus", rang a few bells. Etymological roots are longer lasting than the hardest stone. The Egyptian Benu bird, Ba-i-Nau, from the hieroglyphic Ba- "a leg", shewn euphemistically from the knee down - meaning "leg it", or "go"; and Nag, "presented", "present", English "the present", spelt " ...
62. The Methodology of Patten's Martian Scenario [Journals] [Aeon]
... he himself accepts Zeus and Athena as personifications of the planets Jupiter and Venus? What is amazing is that Heracles, whom the Greeks themselves identified as Mars, (20) is identified by Patten as a personification of the Earth. Thus he tells us that "Heracles is an archetype of the Earth, and indeed Earth' is derived etymologically from Hera, cognate with Heracles." (21) In the first place, the name "Earth" is not derived from that of Hera (which, incidentally, means "Protectress.") (22) The name "Earth" is derived from Middle English "erthe," through Old High German "erdha, ...
63. Night of the Gods: The Pillar-Axis as Tower [Books]
... .O . Muller as Jam vero HypsUranium in insula Tyro domicilium suum collocasse, which would give us a very ancient view indeed of Tory island . (Of course there was a Tyre on the island, now Sour (= tsur ?) but the old Tyre seems to have been on the mainland.) If this be the true etymology of Tyre, it disposes of all the words in tyr- or zup- as having a tower sense. The Hebrews had a name for Tyre. The bull that bore Europa was called Tyrian. The Thebans were poetically, that is archaically, called Tyrians, and I shall endeavour later to show that Thebes was the heavens-city of ...
64. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 3 No 2 (Oct 1980) Home | Issue Contents Letters On Circe and Atlantis Dear Sir, Ms. Bekker's letter ( WORKSHOP vol.2 . no.3 , p.12) suggests that some reflection on the provenance of Circe in Greek mythology and further reflection on basic facts of etymology would not go amiss. For Ms. Bekker's benefit, Circe was accounted the daughter of Helios and the ocean nymph Perseis. Of the same union were born Pasiphae and Aetes, according to the earliest versions. Pasiphae's union with Minos yielded Ariadne and (later versions) others, some with disputed paternity (such as the Minotaur). Aetes ...
65. Avaris and El-Arish (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... same Mosaic law, that congregational communion was to be part of the ritual?(49) Does this not lead to the added conclusion that the Molochian congregation would also have tasted the flesh? VII I did commit one error in my original paper - but it is not one that Danino noticed. I stated there that "Chemosh is etymologically the same as Shamash".(50) As it has been brought to my attention, this is not so. The sound of the letter shiyn (SH as in Shamash) could not etymologically have changed into kaph (K as in Kemosh). In this instance I was trapped by the transliteration of the latter name as ...
66. Aeon Volume V, Number 1: Contents [Journals] [Aeon]
... Liesching. PAGE 15 Circling the Rings- by Henry Zemel A new hypothesis which proposes the one-time existence of rings composed of asteroidal debris surrounding the Sun in concentric bands, the slow shrinkage of which would have swept the ecliptic clear of such remnants. PAGE 23 Quantalism: The Big Picture- by Roger W. Wescott An essay on the etymological origins behind cenocatastrophism which attempts to shed light on animal and human behavior as well as the vocabulary and metaphors of violence. PAGE 33 The Saturn Thesis- (Part 4) The conclusion of AEON's interview with DavidTalbott, who continues to clarify the role of the Radiant Venus in its physical association as a planetary member of the Saturnian configuration ...
67. Indra [Journals] [Kronos]
... , Indra is presented as the Hindu Mars.(3 ) Velikovsky based this identification on Indra's association with the host of minor deities known as the Maruts.(4 ) The connection of the Maruts with Mars was reached through a philological comparison. As Muller had earlier shown, the name Maruts (Marut, Maruta) shares a common etymological root with Mars (Martis).(5 ) This evidence has recently been strengthened by Sean Mewhinney who called attention to the fact that even in Hebrew the name of Mars (Kesil) has a plural form (Kesilim), thus resulting in the added equation Mars:Maruts-Kesil:Kesilim.(6 ) It should not, ...
68. A Note on the "Land of Punt" [Journals] [Kronos]
... , it is by no means exceptional in Mycenaean Greek, which contains several other words of Semitic origin."(8 ) The author of the above commentary, M. C. Astour, goes on to conclude that "the establishment of the West Semitic origin of phoinix and probably, of porphyra, is interesting not only from the etymological point of view. It also serves as another confirmation of steady Greco-Semitic contacts during the Mycenaean Age. It now becomes more difficult to consider the toponyms and personal names Phoinix, Phoiniké, Phoinikus as purely Greek, without any relation to the Phoenicians, and to claim that the Greek traditions on Phoenician penetration of the Aegean were based on ...
69. Vox POPVLI [Journals] [Aeon]
... conjunction. [5 ] There are "sun" petroglyphs in the U.S . that are accompanied by what appears to be a Celtic Ogam inscription identifiable as G-R-N, which is readable as Ogam consaine (vowel-less Ogam) for Old Irish grian, which today means "Sun." However, it would be interesting to know the etymology of Gaelic grian to see if it might originally have referred to some other Solar System body. Dwardu Cardona replies: As the Editor of AEON, I must begin first by thanking Mr. Smith for the kudos, hoping that he will find the present issue just as "handsome" and "uniformly interesting and thought-provoking" as IV ...
70. Jerusalem - City of Saturn [Journals] [Kronos]
... so powerful that it is capable of transcending centuries, even millennia), and/or it could be that later cosmic events such as those described in Worlds in Collision rekindled the Saturnian imagery and presence. Many of the conclusions drawn in "Jerusalem - City of Venus" were based upon the supposed astral meaning of various deities and the etymology of certain divine names, particularly that of the god Shalem.(5 ) Despite the fact that J. Gray held Shalem to be Venus, R. A. Rosenberg - following in the footsteps of M. Jastrow and H. Lewey - maintains that Shalem was Saturn.(6 ) According to Rosenberg: "The West ...
