221. Thoth Vol V, No 12: November 30, 2001 [Journals] [Thoth]
... to follow, the ancient sky-watchers describe a radically different solar system. If we are to believe their explicit testimony, recorded in countless sacred traditions from every corner of the globe, Venus only recently moved on a much different orbit, cavorting with Mars and raining fire from heaven. Is it possible that modern astronomers, in neglecting the ancient folklore surrounding the respective planets, have overlooked a vital clue to the recent history of the solar system? I, for one, believe this to be the case." http//www.aeonjournal.com/venus.htm The book is available from Aeon Publishing 601 Hayward Street Ames, IA 50014 Or online at the Kronia ...
222. Introduction to Velikovsky [Articles]
... swept the earth; a pall of darkness shrouded it, to be followed by a deluge of fire. This picture of a period of intense turmoil within the period of recorded history is supported by a wealth of quotations from the Old Testament, from the Hindu Vedas, from Roman and Greek mythology, and from the myths, traditions and folklore of many races and peoples. . . These catastrophic events in the earth's history are attributed by Dr. Velikovsky to a series of awe-inspiring cosmic cataclysms. In the solar system we see the several planets moving around the sun in the same direction in orbits which are approximately circular and which lie nearly in the same plane. Dr. ...

... readers of that magazine, who might have seen, less than a year previously, "An Interview with Einstein": The subject of controversies over scientific work led Einstein to take up the subject of unorthodox ideas. He mentioned a fairly recent and controversial book, of which he had found the nonscientific part- dealing with comparative mythology and folklore- interesting. "You know," he said to me, "it is not a bad book. No, it really isn't a bad book. The only trouble with it is, it is crazy."... He... went on to explain .. . this distinction.

... called the planets "the dogs of Persephone." Second, there is only one huge ladder, the Galaxy, and only one canine character lying under this ladder, Sirius. But at this point we are only ringing bells at random. What matters here is the tenacious survival of motifs in simple surroundings. Moving one step down in folklore, there is a story spread all over northern Europe (Mannhardt 1, 93) of which this is the English version (the end is from a German variant). A clowder of cats have met in an abandoned broken-down house, where a man is watching them unobserved. A cat jumps on the wall and cries: " ...
... " Why not also try to look out for the "enclosing of Gog and Magog" accomplished by Alexander and told still in the 18th Sura of the Koran, the same Sura which deals with the coming to life of Moses' travel-supply-fish at the "confluence of the rivers?" This "enclosure" is a great theme of medieval folklore, kept fearsomely alive by the sudden appearance of Mongol invasions. The story ran that Alexander had built iron gates over the mountain passes, that the monstrous brood of the Huns, spawning over the limitless plains of the East, had been kept in awe by trumpets sounding from the pass betokening a seemingly immortal conqueror, the "two-horned ...
... upon him without much ado. At this point it is fair to say that Hvarna stands for Legitimacy, or Heavenly Mandate, which is granted to rulers, but is also easily withdrawn. Yima (Jamshyd), the earliest "world ruler," lost it three times. The story of diving Afrasiyab has had many offshoots in Eurasian folklore. There the Turanian Shah is spelled "Devil," and God causes him to dive to the bottom of the sea, so that in the meantime one of the archangels, or St. Elias, can steal a valuable object which is the legal property of the Devil. Sometimes the object is the sun, sometimes the " ...
228. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Velikovsky is in error over the Maruts = Mars equation, but again asserts that Sekhmet is not Venus but a destructive aspect of the Sun. Issue 68 is a lengthy tapestry on Typhon, Seth-Typhon and Comet Lore. 69 continues with Phaethon, "Magical Control", the American Pantheon and Sun-Snaring: 70 discusses Velikovsky's use of the Cottontail folklore, a comparison between the stories of Joshua and Lu-Yang, and concludes with solar disruptions from literary sources.

229. Night of the Gods: Polar Myths. Rock of Ages [Books]
... be P'an (Ku) precisely in the position of a Terminus on a central cosmic Rock of Ages, which also exhibits in its two upright lines an assimilation to the Chinese universe pillar. Around we see the Universe Ocean and the clouds of heaven, with four constellations and the Sun and Moon about his ears. In the moon the folklore hare is busy with its pestle, and the sun-bird seems to be intended for the crow, which is also Japanese. The First Man whom I conjecture to be P'an (Ku) is here seen without the above-mentioned round symbol of the All. The description above the plate runs Jen-Ki chao-P'an37che t'u, the picture of the first parting ...

... could or should be called home to Dardanos, Priamos and Hector. I have inspected the site in person and broadly discussed every aspect of its situation. 1. The reference in the Iliad to a large' city, should be accepted rather as prominent' or important' instead of spacious in circumference. 2. Knowing Greek mythology and folklore I had long suspected that the wooden horse' was a breach of the walls by an earthquake, since the horse was a symbol of the underworld where the stables of Poseidon's horses were located. A breach of the walls had to be shored up not to be a danger to those armed forces trying to gain access to the town ...
