141. Indra's Theft of the Sun-God's Wheel [Journals] [Aeon]
... Sage, thou stolest Surya's chariot wheel." (96) The same event seems to be the subject of the following hymn: Waxed strong in might at dawn he tore the Sun's wheel off. Bright red, he steals away their speech. (97) The word translated as wheel here is cakra- cognate with English wheel and Greek kuklos. (98) The same term, however, can also connote a discus or quoit employed as a weapon. (99) Elsewhere in the Veda, for example, Indra hurls the cakra in order to scatter the Asura-demons. (100) Of Surya's wheel, Griffith observes: "Indra is said to have taken the ...

... was a patron of arts. Living under the Ptolemies, Si-Amon must have witnessed the change of scene. The Egyptian culture that, though affected, survived the impact of the Hyksos invasion, of the Libyan, Ethiopian, Assyrian, and Persian dominations, was now exposed to a spirit and mode not even oriental; whereas in the past Greek mercenaries had settled and merchants frequented Egypt and philosophers had come-since Solon, Pythagoras, Herodotus, and Plato-to seek knowledge, the new trend was bringing changes not only in fashion but in wisdom, too, from Hellas to Egypt, and especially to Alexandria, destined soon to become the cultural capital of the world, supplanting Athens. It ...

143. The Evolution of the Cosmogonic Egg [Journals] [Aeon]
... [or catalogue of stars] bring one more complication into the picture, but it is one which leads, finally, to the decisive insight. Differing from those of Aratus and from Ptolemy, it counts Canopus [Suhayl] in the constellation Eridanus [which borders on Argo] instead of Argo...Eridanus, lacking a decent Greek etymology, finds a reasonable derivation from Eridu, as was proposed by Kugler, Eridu being the seat of Enki-Ea... (20) Thus Ea was known as the Lord of Eridu, (21) a sacred city that was mythologically identified with the constellation Eridanus, Argo, or Vela, (22) which all border ...

... sent Venus (lightning bolts or whatnot) to kill the such a connection still not acceptable, considering the ancients described the same event in two ways? Cardona Replies: Well, here, the bottom line appears to be simply this: While the comet called Typhon (that is, Comet Set) and the GREEK Typhon were NOT one and the same object, it will turn out that the GREEK Typhon was also a comet. More than that, the GREEK Typhon will turn out to have been cometary Venus in disguise. The comet called Set, on the other hand, which the Greeks also alluded to as Typhon, was NOT Venus. ...

... so you too should wash each other's feet. '" For two millennia interpreters have been searching for the meaning of this episode- if Jesus wanted to demonstrate the need for humility and forgiveness of sins, why did he choose to act out this particular metaphor, and why just before supper? Because the New Testament is written in colloquial Greek, it is not generally considered a part of classical literature. Most gospel interpreters seek Jewish sources and a Palestinian background underneath its Greek surface and therefore tend to disregard its relationship to the rest of Greek literature. (1 ) However, no mention of foot washing in connection with meals can be found in Jewish sources, including ritual ...

... 4. The rare Hebrew word used here, zdw, means: expression, or, succession of words. A very free rendering of the babbling phrase zaw-wa-zdw of the Hebrew original, which A.V . renders `precept upon precept', would be: `diddle-dee-dum', or , 'Ram-tam-tam'. Note 5. The Greek word rendered look thereon', means literally also to `see through' something, i.e . to grasp it, understand it thoroughly, or gauge its meaning. Note 6. Moons, Myths, and Man.

... matter of doubt; for, independently of Hebrew thought, I have but to interject the wide-world thought that the original deep, the primordial waters, was the home and "starry habitation of the gods", - in order to mass a world of testimony on this point. Just as the Vedic Varuna, the Egyptian Amun, the Greek Ouranos, the Latin Coelum, the Scandinavian Odin, all brooding on the face of the waters, eventually passed away, as ephemeral heavens. So did the Hebrew heaven, where brooded their Elohim. The Hebrew tells us a part of those vanishing skies fell and were gathered into "seas". There was motion, and because ...

... From: Aeon IV:4 (Apr 1996) Home | Issue Contents Alexander and the Amazons: Ancient Belief and Modern Analysis Tammy Jo Eckhart Introduction Amazon mythology (1 ) is commonly encountered in the writings and art of the ancient Greeks and Romans. While the abundance of writers who mention Amazons indicates that the ancients considered them an important race, the surviving accounts leave the modern scholar with many unanswered queries. Several groups of questions surface in the account of Alexander the Great's two reported encounters with these Amazons. The first group of questions concerns the very existence of Amazons: are they a historical people? Did these encounters really occur? The second group concerns their mythological ...

149. Planetary Worship [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... In this respect, uniformitarian thought has no role to play. Even the most uniformitarian of mythologists, like Giorgio de Santillana, Hertha von Dechend, and Elmer Suhr, have conceded as much. Their interpretations may very well be limited by uniformitarian thought, but the fact that mythology is cosmic in origin did not escape them. The ancient Greeks deified all of the heavenly bodies of the Solar System that are visible to the naked eye. Aristotle wrote: "A tradition has been handed down by the ancient thinkers of very early times .. . to the effect that these heavenly bodies [the planets] are gods..."(5 ) And it is the ...

... ," this critic continues, "Zeus and Kronos were originally general sky gods whose nature underwent a long evolution with their names becoming associated with planets at a late date." So often has this allegation been made that I am growing tired of having to counteract it. In various publications, I have repeatedly demonstrated how, among the Greeks, the gods' identity with the planets was forgotten, only to be rediscovered by Aristotle. (2 ) Those who have tried to fault Aristotle on this issue had no reason to. The issue, however, goes well beyond the Greeks who, after all is said and done, came somewhat late on the ancient historical scene ...
