191. The Great Terror [Journals] [Kronos]
... clue to types of regimes existing in very ancient times could come from the fact of an unstable natural order. We notice today, for example, that unstable social situations are often met with an increase in governmental coercion. If this is a natural response, then societies affected by natural instability (either in their current memory or by respected folklore) may give rise to irrationally repressive' regimes. The specifics of any regime would, of course, depend upon a variety of influences, but more basic elements of a regime's character may follow directly from the stability or instability of the natural order. The fact that very ancient regimes appear to us to be chaotic and unprincipled may ...

... in the paying of homage to God or in practising justice towards men. They begat sons who "made God their enemy", were "despisers of all that was good", trusting to their own strength and resembling "the acts of the Giants".5 Now it is plain from these words that Josephus, in recording the folklore of his ancestors, is really speaking of the Giants of old, the men of renown. The charges he makes are in fact exactly on a par with those alleged against the Satans in the Book of Enoch. They are identical with those spoken of by Plato, which caused Zetis to destroy the island of Atlantis. Indeed, ...

... his armies had disappeared, all the kings of the nations who had come subject to Pharaoh revolted, and having lost her king and her armies Egypt was left utterly without defence. And they made war on her and took all the people and drove them forth, dispersing them all over the world."4 This is a most interesting folklore memory of its type, for it gives a sidelight on the period to that of the Hebrew or Mosaic standpoint. The student of Egyptian history will find no difficulty in recognizing the Pharaoh in question as the Ramses monarch called Sesostris by Herodotus and Sethosis by Diodomus, the great Ramses' monarch who, there is reason to believe, ...

... to geological and biological evolution, not least to the psychological development of mankind. We all have powerful, albeit unconscious, memories of those events- we suffer from "collective amnesia," the trauma of those catastrophes being so great that mankind suppressed explicit recollections and now remembers only in allusive and elliptical ways through myth, legend, and folklore. Careful analysis of the latter, however, together with evidence from, for example, archaeology and paleontology, makes it possible to reconstruct those catastrophic events. This view has implications for literally every field of human learning, and Velikovskian science covers that whole range. Some Velikovskians work in rather narrow areas, fleshing in details of points ...

195. The Scenario of Exodus [Books] [de Grazia books]
... shepherd's festival to usher in spring (Buber, sic!). It was on this night before they departed from Egypt, incidentally, that the Hebrews baked bread for the feast. The haste before the departure, say many biblical authorities, prompted instructions to take unleavened bread, whence has come the matzos of ages since and today. Folklore, however, has long told us that bread dough will not rise in a thunderstorm. The Hebrews could not get their dough to rise, owing to intense electrostatic disturbances, but baked the flat dough into bread anyhow. The earth heaved and, as with the greatest earthquakes, electrical storms broke out in the darkness. The two ...

196. From Venus with Love [Books] [de Grazia books]
... Book of the Dead can not but agree that there is hardly anything more senseless in the way of expensive books-understandable perhaps to the translator's analyst, but certainly not the ancient author. Etymology for the present is not more than a systematized part of established science, the mechanism for the continued repression of the past. Electricity has in folklore been connected with sexuality, just as has the coinage and usage of words. Jerry Ziegler, a physicist, in the 1970's circulated his work on ancient knowledge of electrostatics and a copy come to Deg who got in touch with Ziegler and recommended his study to V. who ignored it, but Deg began to develop it in a ...

... same way termites build nests- by instinct rather than by learning. Nor does he discuss such poorly delimited but perennially controversial phenomena as cannibalism, phallicism, and matricentricity, all of which must have involved attitudes fundamentally different from those which prevail today. Still less does he give serious consideration to Biblical traditions asserting, in keeping with much other folklore, that there were once men who lived for centuries and that giants then shared the earth with people of normal stature. In a few cases, Jaynes even overlooks some fairly obvious material supporting his central thesis that early urban man lived by listening to gods. Among those cases are these facts: that the goddess Vac, "Voice ...

... . This occurs because everyone possesses an unconscious ancestral memory of these events, for "We are descendants of survivors, themselves descendants of survivors."(5 ) Responses to these ancestral traumas may therefore occur in any area of our culture. For instance, Velikovsky maintained that records of these events are preserved in religion, myth, and folklore, which are therefore not as fanciful as science would have us believe. Consciously, however, man cannot tolerate a knowledge of such events, and as a result we suffer from a collective amnesia which is less an inability to remember what happened than an innate unwillingness to recognize the truth buried overtly or covertly in myth and religion and ...

... adventures of Susanowo the Japanese god. They are found in the Japanese Scriptures, in this case the Nihongi, compiled about the 8th century A.D . but going back to unknown times. They are the full equivalent of what the Bible was in our recent past, and even more, for "this 169 body of legend, folklore to us but credible history to the people of the archipelago, is tangled in the roots of everything Japanese." The quotation is from Post Wheeler, who prepared the latest edition of the Japanese mythical corpus. To quote him further: "In no other land do we find a people's sacred legend so interknit with the individual's daily ...

... by the personal background and special interests of the reader himself. (18) For the sake of the present discussion I will accept the judgement of Bauer, who summarizes the salient points of Velikovsky's work as follows: (1 ) The Bible and other ancient records contain much factual material about actual physical events; (2 ) Myths and folklore are built around descriptions of striking actual events that can be discerned by proper analysis; (3 ) Past catastrophes were so threatening to mankind that overt reminders of them are suppressed, though they are described in more or less veiled form in common legends and traditions. The refusal to see descriptions of these actual catastrophes in the ancient writings ...
