111. The Evolution of the Cosmogonic Egg [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon III:5 (May 1994) Home | Issue Contents The Evolution of the Cosmogonic Egg Dwardu Cardona See note * below The Ovum Mundi The myths of creation are multifarious, but one consistent motif connected with this primordial event concerns the universal, celestial, or cosmic egg. This motif is found scattered throughout the entire world- Mircea Eliade has noted examples from Polynesia, India, Indonesia, Iran, Greece, Phoenicia, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Africa, Central and South America (1 )- and has found its way into the works of various mythologists, all of whom have offered their own interpretation concerning the significance of this ovum mundi. ...
112. Second SIS Cambridge Conference Report [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... records. Depending on one's chronology and the geographic region under discussion, the Bronze Age started c.3500 BC and continued for two or three thousand years until approximately 1500-500 BC, encompassing not only the main construction phases of Stonehenge and its megalithic counterparts elsewhere, but also the genesis of kingship, priesthood, human and animal sacrifice, the evolution of religious views from polytheism to monotheism and significantly to astronomers a burgeoning interest in the celestial sphere. The heart of the astronomical thesis is that changes in the Earth's near-space astronomical environment, corresponding to the orbital evolution and hierarchical fragmentation of a giant comet - possibly the progenitor of Encke's comet, have produced surges in the rate of accretion ...
113. The Rise and Fall of Man (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... scanty remains semi-permanently embedded in rubble, gravel, and earthy material during the diluvial period, are to be found. The same refers, in principle, to the Cretaceous Age as well, and not only to man but also to all forms of life. Such an extension and modification of the standpoints of science in the question of the evolution of man explains very well the missing links' by showing that what is really missing is long lengths of a chain of development of which only a few links were saved. The history of the evolution of life on this planet is a thick volume, consisting of blank leaves. Only here and there, once every hundred pages or ...
114. Getting it Together [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... of their use, choice and organisation and reading his book is a learning experience. He is also fond of neologisms - e.g . anomalistics, incaninity etc - proof of his belief in language as a living, thriving entity. If no word fits the bill, invent one. The subjects covered are: Education, Anomalistics, Evolution, Consciousness, Language and Futurism. In describing the state of current knowledge Professor Wescott makes very clear the depth of our ignorance. Education is discussed in a dialectical manner, contrasting humanities and sciences, specialisation and overview, search and research etc. In each case the writer suggests a transdisciplinary way of combining these apparent opposites or at ...
115. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... confirms him as the most accessible writer on Darwinism since LOREN EISELEY. The short pithy essays, 33 in all, cover a fascinating range of topics from "The Misnamed, Mistreated and Misunderstood Irish Elk" to the "History of the Vertebrate Brain". Misconceptions about Darwin's life and work are cleared up, the Darwinist view of human evolution is explored, the principle of natural selection applied to explain some curiosities of the animal world, "patterns and punctuations in the history of life", and several (ancient and modern) theories of the earth examined, concluding with various themes of "sociobiology" from crime to racism. Gould does not shun controversy, but throughout ...

117. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1997:2 (Apr 1998) Home | Issue Contents Bookshelf Jill Abery Life: An unauthorised biography by Richard Fortey, Harper Collins, 1997, £20 A palaeontologist takes us through the history of life on Earth, looking not just at the course of evolution but the history of ideas about evolution. Fortey believes chance survival after catastrophes was a greater force in evolution than slow steady natural selection and, in fact, the greatest amount of natural selection has probably been between different palaeontologists fighting behind the scenes for the acceptance of their individual theories. Fortey mentions the changing ideas about the role of comets in evolution, how Hoyle and ...
118. General Conclusions [Books]
... | PART IV : Appendixes I | II | III | IV | Acknowledgements | Notes And References | General Conclusions The time has now come to bring this book to an end. First we had a quick glance at the principles of orthodox geology and pointed out their weaknesses. We followed the changes that have taken place in the theory of evolution. We reviewed the way in which the science of meteoritics, originating in astronomy, geophysics, and geology, came into existence and the battles it has had to fight in order to demonstrate clearly and to convince the scientific world that giant meteorites have in fact struck our planet. We have followed the development and perfection of new methods ...

... canyon? The Hawaiian natives are firm believers in spirits and ghosts, and Wallace's companion had twice experienced his car cut out in a place supposedly good for ghosts. The possible connection between magnetic/electric anomalies, human detection of "spirits" and plant mutations should not be lightly dismissed. source: J. Chaline, "Rodents, evolution and prehistory", Endeavour Vol. 1, No.2 (1977) The rodents apparently provide a good example of continuous change by evolution from one form to another, thus refuting Eldrige and Gould's idea of punctuated equilibrium, or sudden changes. But perhaps the two processes are not mutually exclusive. Interpretation of the fossil record depends ...
120. Book Review [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the northern types proved superior and caused the extinction of many southern types. Myers, after incorrectly inferring that Simpson is telling how the "geologic joining of South and North America during the Pliocene" was responsible for "a climax of extinctions and speciation some 5 million years ago", finally laments Simpson's lack of comment about the workings of evolution and the causes of these extinctions: "After 50 years of chipping away at his subject, this distinguished scientist must surely have some views to share with us." I found this lament most intriguing. If, indeed, someone so obviously expert in his subject as Simpson could not commit himself to the orthodox view of South American ...
