... "unlucky" movements in a single artifact. Light is thrown on this aspect of the problem, as will be shown, by the evidence afforded by certain ancient folk customs. It is important when dealing with ancient religious and magico-religious ideas to search for clues in surviving or recorded beliefs and customs. But before investigating the evidence afforded by folklore and mythology, it would be well to review the literature connected with the spiral. This cannot be accomplished here with any degree of fullness, so voluminous is the literature in question. Consideration can, however, be given to the opinions of three outstanding representatives of different "schools of thought". These are Dr. H. ...

213. A Catastrophic Reading of Western Cosmology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Earth, which is capricious, unpredictable and unexplainable. Aeschylean existence is a hard, random and not always benevolent process in which the gods are vertically above mankind in every sense, on an axis along which coercion flows only downward and without much concern. This view survived into the fourth century as a relic in the drama cycles and in folklore. The next phase, (if we can believe conventional Greek history), is loosely called pre-Socratic and contains mostly materialistic and/or dynamic models of the cosmos, by which I mean explanations which do not purport to reveal the divine principles which govern the universe, but of what it is made and in what ways it functions ...

Wheeler, an authority on folklore, prefers "to regard the winged serpent as a universal possession, linking back, it may well be, with a remote time of tenacious racial memory, of which geology has given us pregnant suggestions;"(26) and in Japan, once, it is told that the Great-Land-Master appeared to the Emperor Yuriaku "as a ...

216. A Word about the Planetary Debate [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... a second theorist's, but this is nothing more than a series of private constructs put together by the constructor. This is his preference and his grouping, and everyone's grouping can differ. The "record," as it is self-servingly called, is usually drawn from religion, mythology, ancient history, fairy tales, legends, anecdotes and folklore. The process, however, is not at all straightforward, but quirky, irregular and inconsistent. Anthropologist Roger Wescott, after decades of study in and of the field, describes the mythological pool (18) as a bouillabaisse, a thick, impenetrable, heterogenous soup or stew filled with any number of odds and ends.

... tell such similar stories? Though the names differ, the various biographies of the gods reveal more parallels than I had ever believed possible. And the deeper I looked the more clear it became that ancient races around the world recorded many identical experiences, even when they used different symbols to tell their stories. Many common themes run through the folklore of diverse cultures. From ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia to the Americas, from India to China, Scandinavia, Africa, and the Pacific Islands, one finds surprisingly similar accounts: celestial temples and cities, a lost paradise or "Garden of Eden," a cosmic mountain, a flaming serpent or dragon in the sky- and surprisingly similar ...
