... at its completion, Straight rushed into each other's arms And melted into one; So they became the brightest star In heaven's high arch that dwelt Great Sirius, the mighty Sun beneath Orion's belt. The native Australians knew it as their Eagle, a constellation by itself; while the Hervey Islanders, calling it Mere, associated it in their folklore with Aldebaran and the Pleiades. Sharing the Sanskrit titles for the whole, it was the Deer-slayer and the Hunter, while the Vedas also have for it Tishiya or Tishiga, Tistrija, Tishtrya, the Tistar, or Chieftain's, Star. And this we find too in Persia; as also Sira. The later Persian and Pahlavi have ...

... red circle with Swastika in the center is depicted on the place where the family gods are kept (Campbell, Notes, p, 70), In the Meerut division the worshiper of the village god Bhumiya constructs a rude model of it in the shrine by fixing up two crossed straws with a daub of plaster. It often occurs in folklore.

174. The Scientific Reception System [Books] [de Grazia books]
... of ideas. Yet one of the glaring features of the Velikovsky case is the humanistic ignorance of natural scientists. A reading of the Velikovsky record should be part of the proceedings of any group considering the revision of curriculum for students of the natural sciences. Soon a century will have passed since the beginnings of the scientific investigation of myth, folklore, and primitive psychology. It has been many years since a theory of the unconscious has found a place in the instrumentation of social science. The science of linguistics, of symbols, of the sociology of communication, has progressed. It would appear that a more broadly educated or at least philosophically trained scientific class would have been able ...

176. Pompous Asimov [Books]
... cosmic alignment . . . which, once every 2050 years, brings about the destruction of an entire planetary civilization and simultaneously induces a collective amnesia." (137) Bass is referring here ironically to Velikovsky's theory of collective amnesia, in which, after the terrifying experiences of huge catastrophes have been buried in religion, myth, art and folklore, later generations are not able to recognize the historical content of these creations because the conscious memory has been suppressed by an amnesiac forgetfulness and avoidance. It is amusing to Bass, therefore, that Asimov should have unknowingly put this Velikovskian concept into a piece of his own fiction. Bass recognizes, of course, why Asimov-the-scientist later made ...
