281. The Catastrophic Substructure of Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra (Part II) [Journals] [Kronos]
... the memories, and then, what collective neuroses or delusions would we produce in their stead to let us cope with existence? Dr. Velikovsky has argued that, unconsciously, the result is a collec- tive amnesia, and he has also urged that, as a byproduct of this collective amnesia, most of our religion, myth and folklore are an unconscious attempt by man to sublimate repressed unbearable fact into conscious bearable illusion. The common purpose of these illusions, he says, which are produced universally, is to describe, and thus render friendly and controllable, that which would otherwise remain unknown and therefore apparently uncontrollable. Through them, an explanation is offered for everything, ...

283. The Electric Universe [Journals] [SIS Review]
... published as the lead article in Science for 4 June 1971, they are still being ignored by astrophysicists. Postgraduate astrophysics students are still subjected to simplistic theory without seeing a plasma. With the commissioning of the new X-ray satellites which pinpoint electrical activity, the crisis cannot be far off. 30. Christopher Blinkenberg, The Thunderweapon in Religion and Folklore, 1987. The thunderweapon was associated with thunderstones' that were hurled from the sky with the lightning'and were buried deep in the Earth. The blow it delivers and its terrible power are often referred to, but the fire kindled by the lightning hardly ever'. See p. 60. . Everything in fact suggests that the thunderstone ...
284. Introduction (In the Beginning: God) [Books]
... establish beyond any doubt the relationship of the biblical reports with those of Babylonia, His findings are interesting and valuable even though he made the mistake of regarding the biblical account as a sort of daughter of the Babylonian one, while actually the relationship is more like that of cousins. Frazer, in the first volume of his magnificent work, Folklore in the Old Testament, tentatively put forward a splendid array of cosmogonic myths drawn from all parts of the world to be compared with the biblical stories. Frazer did not commit himself as to the absolute meaning of these cosmogonic myths and seems to quote them chiefly for the significant parallelisms with, or peculiar deviations from, the reports in ...
285. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... scriptural material, the Irish monks took aboard Latin pagan manuscripts as well. MYTH How Myths are Made Sunday Times Magazine 12.9 .99, Sunday Times 25.7 .99, The Jesus Conspiracy BBC1 TV, April 00 A review of relatively recent recorded history soon makes it obvious that incidents and characters rapidly become mythologised in popular folklore into that which they never were. There is a tendency for villains to become heroes, and heroes villains' depending on the cultural and political needs of the age. Shakespeare's demonisation of Richard III is one example, the Tudors wishing to denigrate the memory of the last Yorkist king from whom Henry Tudor had seized the throne'. ...

... flooding and submergence of an inhabited island that has since become known as the Goodwin Sands. The same process has been going on in east Scotland, e.g . the Tay estuary. It is possible to identify Cornelius Over de Linden' as a fraudster, and his 19th book as a forgery, and still retain some of the folklore he incorporated into it, namely a tale of inundation of a former island in the North Sea. Further investigation of inundation traditions around the North Sea might prove interesting, from a Dutch, German and Danish perspective. Phillip Clapham, Hazlemere, High Wycombe, Bucks.

288. Apocalyptic Imagery In Modern Political Spectacle [Journals] [SIS Review]
... in the sky hurling its shafts toward Earth. Step 2 was the bolide formed by the intersecting shafts. Step 3, which is now described, turned the focus of the representation fully on to the ground but, to prepare you for my interpretation of it, let us consider the visual and narrative prototypes in ancient myth, religion, folklore and literature which may be drawn from Velikovsky. These are used because they are relevant and typical and because many rival catastrophists who reject his interpretation of his evidence, such as Clube and Napier and even Gribbin, do not dismiss his data as evidence in itself. Note particularly the image of fire falling from the sky, ignis e ...
... from the depths, and in regard to this there is a strange Gaelic poem the gist of which is, as translated into English, that "seven years before that awful day", when a flood shall drown Ireland and all else, Columba's "happy isle shall raise her towers above the flood". It looks uncommonly like a folklore memory of a period long before Columba of a flood from which Tons escaped, although it is difficult to conceive how such a low-lying island could escape scatheless from the series of tidal waves as drowned other isles, some permanently, and it may have originally described how the Isle was restored. The Eye was of ancient times the symbol ...
... Flash as the weapon was fired. D'Alviella reproduces many illustrations from seals and other sources of such ancient guns, always disguised, of course, and frequently being handled by demons. Among Druid mysteries was that of the "Serpent's Egg", the ovum anguinum of Pliny, the glein neidr of the ancient Britons, the adder-stone of modern folklore. A poem of the Welsh bard, Aneurin, refers to it as "that involved ball which cast its rays to a distance, the splendid product of the adder, shot forth by serpents". Pliny describes this absurdity in these words: "In the summer numberless snakes entwine themselves into a ball held together by a secretion ...
