124. The Role of Collective Amnesia in Retarding the Acceptance of Correct Ideas in Science [Journals] [Kronos]
... destruction alike. This is, in my view, the main cause of the emotional outbursts that have followed Worlds in Collision. The idea of a great fear living in man since the days of the great catastrophes presented itself early to me - I was a student of psychology before I became a student of history, natural history, and folklore; and I was aware that there is some "blocking", in the psychoanalytic sense, to see obvious things. Why have students of mythology failed to discover why the gods of the pantheons of all ancient races should have been identified with the planets? Why do the traditions of all races speak of celestial theomachy, of great ...
125. Notes on this issue: Pensee IVR IX [Journals] [Pensee]
... and history (p . 45). Assiduously avoiding the usual academic jargon, and steering clear of the transcendentalization and mystification of myth, Deloria wonders aloud: what if many ancient stories represent simply the way people wrote about the events that affected their lives? Dr. William Mullen (p . 34) undertakes an analysis of archaeology and folklore of the early Mesoamericans, concluding that some decidedly catastrophic events affected their lives. "Among the many results of Velikovsky's rigorous pursuit of his historical method," according to Mullen, "is that the narratives which cultures have always insisted to be central to them are at last shown to begin in history as well as to end in ...

127. "Worlds in Collision" and the Prince of Denmark: II. Hamlet and Meso-American Myth [Journals] [SIS Review]
... summarised. HAMLET AND ORESTES Dr Wolfe first turns to Greek mythology and the Orestes legend. In a book first published in 1913, Gilbert Murray (13) pointed out that Orestes was an established figure in religion and epic long before he was introduced into Greek poetry and tragedy, just as the Hamlet story had a long history in Scandinavian folklore, and traced 21 parallels between the Classical and Shakespearean redactions of the stories: - Plumed Serpent on stamp from Mexico City. (This and other Mexican motifs are from Jorge Enciso: Design Motifs of Ancient Mexico, Dover, 1953.) The hero is the son of a murdered king who was succeeded by a kinsman who has ...

(Rich, Vera; "The 70-Year-Old Mystery of Siberia's Big Bang," Nature 274:207, 1978.) POSITIVE ION EMISSION BEFORE EARTHQUAKES MAY AFFECT ANIMALS Both folklore and modern observations are emphatic that many animals become agitated prior to earthquakes.

Tributsch notes that similar behaviors also accompany certain weather situations, such as the Alpine foehn and Near East sharav, which are ...

... , p. 117: "The picture is drawn so graphically that every detail is clear before the eyes and one would almost think of a realistic description of historical events, but for the miracles. Thus the vividness of description is also a mark of a saga." A river or sea cleft in two is a frequent motif in folklore. The pursuers probably experienced some catastrophe, not because of a sea rent in twain, but because of a tide swollen by the storm. But an explanation based on ebb and flood tides is obviously invalid. Whether the Sea of Passage was the Gulf of Suez or the Gulf of Aqaba on the Red Sea, or Lake Sirbonis ...
