251. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... that he observed but could not adequately explain. In her recent book (2 ) D. E. Vitaliano has proposed a very appropriate word - Geomythology - for a branch of science that consists of the application to geology of euhemerism - the doctrine that interprets myth as the distorted accounts of historical personages and events and also includes themes from folklore, ancient and modern, and from cosmological or explanatory myths. It thus involves geology, geography, history, archaeology and philology, and incorporates aspects of natural sciences, social sciences and the humanities. The pertinence of Vitaliano's book to the present discussion is its extensive and detailed analysis of Man's ability to observe, record and preserve memories ...

252. Velikovsky And The Cosmic Serpent [Journals] [Kronos]
... astronomy; we make broad predictions and look for their fulfilment in the records on Earth. In this light Velikovsky is not so much the first of the new catastrophists, as Stove would like us to believe; he is the last in a line of traditional catastrophists going back to mediaeval times and probably earlier. However, part of the folklore of the cult is that the scientific community pores over Velikovsky's works looking for juicy bits to steal (the creeping respectability' tenet). It would therefore be futile to point out to Stove that our historical study has been based on modern analysts, who are quoted throughout; that myth has been documented and analyzed in hundreds of books ...

... return to the distinction between content and form made above, we might go further and say that form as we have defined it is literature, while content is supra-literary. This means that literature is not wholly unique. Only its form is, but its content is related to the deep contents of other domains, notably religion, myth, folklore and dreams. Catastrophist criticism deals with this deep content,* with that in literature which is not literary. [* When I speak of immediate versus deep content, my usage of these terms is quite Chomskian. By them, I seek to indicate that many narratives, and usually those which have endured the test of time, ...

257. Bronze Age Destructions in the Near East [Journals] [SIS Review]
... conquest of Canaan with the end of the Middle Bronze Age (MB II C) in Palestine. He has also claimed that the events described in Worlds in Collision were merely the last of a series of catastrophes due to extraterrestrial causes which had profoundly affected and were deeply embedded in the collective memory of mankind, often in the form of folklore and myth [22]. It seems fairly clear from the references which Velikovsky makes to Schaeffer's work in Earth in Upheaval that he regards its evidence of catastrophic events in Western Asia at the close of the Early Bronze Age as support for his view that the Earth had been affected by other extraterrestrial events before the Venus and Mars catastrophes ...

... the positions of the complete set back to the beginning. But these difficulties are minor compared to the philosophical consequences. In reconstructing catastrophic events the most important "measuring instruments" by which we "observe" planetary movements are human accounts. Already as collected in Worlds in Collision they range from mathematical registrations preserved on cuneiform tablets to fragments of folklore relayed by anthropologists from tribes approaching extinction. The overwhelming mass of these accounts is essentially conditioned by what we call "mythical thinking". As stated earlier, it seems characteristic of this kind of thinking to charge all phenomena with spiritual meaning and to find the symbols of catastrophic experience indispensable for that purpose. If we set out to ...

... son." But, unmentioned by Hancock, in the Asiatic sphere there is the equivalent Iranian Kai Khusrau, who is associated with Lake Vurukasha (6 )- a watery designation bearing a remarkable homophonic similarity to the name of Viracocha, whose legendary capital was the Andean city of Tiahuanaco by Lake Titicaca. All of these worldwide legends and folkloric tales are closely associated with devastating cataclysms and inundations which brought earlier powerful civilizations to an unceremonious and ignominious end, principal among which are the sweeping accounts of floods that left precious few survivors to relate their fragmented stories of wretchedness and woe. Hancock himself is of catastrophist bent, as typified by his richly diverse and extensive notes and references ...

... and chronicles which are much later than the people and events with which they deal. I have referred earlier to the corrupt state of historical traditions preserved in surviving Greek and Latin texts. To some extent this also applies to original Egyptian texts. Apart from the "prophetic" literature of the Middle and New Kingdoms, there are elements of folklore in, for example, the Ramesside story of the quarrel of Apophis and Seqenenre, and in the much later stories of the pharaoh Bocchoris. Part of the Table of Saqqara, compiled in the New Kingdom All the Egyptian king-lists of the New Kingdom are incomplete - some partially destroyed, like the Turin canon, while others, like ...
