... this two-tiered class structure. There is much to support the idea (see also Heinsohn and Marx, 1982) that exiled tribes will appear after catastrophes, too, which may result, for instance, in realignments of the earth's axis, in turn producing too cold a climate in the North-Asiatic homelands. Thus, for example, North Asiatic folklore regards Siberia as the tomb of "fallen rich men and vanished peoples" (Okladnikow, 267). It is quite permissible to ask, therefore, whether the more or less centralized tributary economies of Mesopotamia which begin to be seen at the close of the second millennium might not have been established by tribes forced to leave their no-longer ...

... 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 aweinspiring cosmic cataclysms. In the solar system we see the several planets moving round the sun in the same direction in orbits which are approximately circular and which lie nearly in the same plane. Dr Velikovsky asserts ...

... liturgically. The sky is beginning to fall; the people are frightened; they seek the religio-secular authority to ease their fears or perhaps to do something about it. But they encounter the fox who, ancient myths relate, "nibbles continuously at the thong of the yoke which holds together heaven and earth" (Proclus) and "German folklore adds that when the fox succeeds, the world will come to its end." This same fox can also be a wolf, and a dog. It is a star. It is also called "Electra, mother of Dardanus, who left her station among the Pleiades, desperate because of Ilion's (Troy's) fall, and ...

... ) And in the Americas, a strangely similar belief prevailed among the Aztecs: "On the death of a great noble, his soul was thought of as taking flight like a bird or a butterfly."(70) Other examples are noted by Theodor Gaster: The pre-Islamic Arabs entertained the same fancy, and it survives in the folklore of the Moslems of Abyssinia and likewise among the Mandaeans of Iraq and Iran. The idea is further attested in China and in several parts of Indonesia (notably, on the island of Bali); while the Semangs of Malacca assert that the soul of the dying often soars aloft in fomm of a small bird.

... south and east. Farther south and mingled with these groupings in some places are the Negroid or Australoid types to which reference has been made earlier. Nor should one neglect the Negritos and pygmies who are found in the middle of Negroid regions but are reputed to have dwelt practically everywhere. "The little people" are a universal subject of folklore. Wherever found they are designated as a very old, perhaps aboriginal, type of mankind; they are said usually to be more clever and have a richer mythology than the peoples around them, despite their smaller braincases. Not only are there peoples on the Pacific Islands, but also the peoples have cultural complexities and have exercised technologies ...

Back in America to teach for the Fall Semester, on November 11, 1974 he telephones Dorothy Vitaliano, who, with her husband Charles, worked as a geological team. Indiana University press had recently published her Legends of the Earth, the aim of which was to establish uniformitarian interpretations of both catastrophic folklore and of geological sites assertedly catastrophic. Her book's sales were disappointing. It is not so easy to sell anti-quantavolution books; although well-received by editors and professors, they lack an enthusiastic audience. As an example of her method, she presents an Arancanian Indian legend according to which in ancestral times two serpents made the sea rise. Earthquake ...
