201. Phaėthon, Part 1 Venus Ch.7 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... From "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Phaėthon The Greeks as well as the Carians and other peoples on the shores of the Aegean Sea told of a time when the sun was driven off its course and disappeared for an entire day, and the earth was burned and drowned. The Greek legend says that the young Phaėthon, who claimed parentage of the sun, on that fatal day tried to drive the chariot of the sun. Phaėthon was unable to make his way "against the whirling poles," and "their swift axis" swept him away. Phaėthon in Greek means "the blazing one." Many authors ...

202. Did the Amazons Exist After All? [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:1 (Nov 1997) Home | Issue Contents News Flash Did the Amazons Exist After All?Tania ta Maria Ancient female warriors, known as Amazons, litter Greek myth and legend. In modern times, they have been more or less relegated to the fertile imagination of the ancient Greeks. Herodotus, the Greek historian of antiquity, had however vouched for their existence. On his return from his travels north of the Black Sea, he told of these fierce female warriors, armed with swords and bows and arrows, roaming the steppes of what today is southern Russia. Together with their mention elsewhere in Greek literature, scholars have dismissed Herodotus' ...

203. Reflections Of The Persian Wars [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... as we are told, for six centuries and not leave a single remnant or document of its existence? This in itself is unimaginable, and leads to the conclusion that the Sealand must have had an origin other than that assigned to it by the historians. Immanuel Velikovsky, in Peoples of the Sea, identified the Sea People as the Greeks. His identification is based on several lines of inquiry and seems very well documented. Thus, if the First Babylonian Dynasty is the Persian Dynasty, it is a reasonable assumption that the Sea Country people are also the Greeks. (8 ) The Sealand ". .. politically attained...a broad arena in which its ...

... published in the previous issue of KRONOS, Vol. III, No. 4, Summer-1978, pages 3 to 18. Francis Fergusson, in his study of the ritual and mythic basis of drama, The Idea of a Theatre, (32) argues that Hamlet consists of five dramatic divisions that are similar to the prototypical five-part structure of Greek tragedy in general and of Sophocles' Oedipus Rex in particular. It should be pointed out, however, that these divisions do not correspond to the conventional five-act divisions imposed upon Shakespeare's plays a century after his death and accepted by most critics with little change ever since. That is an arbitrary convenience which we retain for ease of reference ...

... established- that myth may be communal and universal truth, that Hamlet is deeply mythical, that the Elizabethan stage was ritualistic and symbolic, ideally suited for the presentation of myth, and that the criticism that attempts to reveal and explain this dimension of drama returns us to the roots of our origins as thinking beings. 1. Hamlet and Greek Myth The first body of legend we shall apply to our play is perhaps the best known in Western culture. There are a great number of parallels to be found between Shakespeare's play and events in Attic folklore, many set forth in Worlds in Collision. In this section, I shall compare Hamlet with two of the greatest Greek tragic ...

206. Chronos And Kronos [Journals] [Kronos]
... Stecchini Copyright (C ) 1981 by the Estate of Livio C. Stecchini [* This article has been excerpted from a letter by Dr. Stecchini that was originally published in the Sept. 1960 issue of Scientific American.- LMG.] It is true that for a person who consults a dictionary the name Kronos is different from the Greek term chronos, meaning "time"; but there is no difference to a person acquainted with classical literature. The association of Kronos, father of Zeus, with chronos is well established in poets of the fifth century B.C . This association is as old as the first Greek speculations on the nature of time in the preceding ...

207. Cosmic Catastrophism [Journals] [Aeon]
... But all of these similarities between the two gods stem from their natures as war gods! They have nothing to do with possible connections between the gods in question and some heavenly body. The similarities simply do not demonstrate that Huitzilpochtli was the Aztec name for the planet Mars. In another section of Worlds in Collision, Velikovsky claims that a Greek myth describing how Athena sprang full-grown from the forehead of Zeus derived from observation of the birth of the planet Venus from Jupiter. (47) But the ancient Greeks equated Aphrodite, not Athena, with the Roman goddess Venus and with the planet Venus. Athena's Roman counterpart was Minerva, who was not one of the planets. ( ...

208. Egyptian Language Anomalies [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... I will also show that objects from the Ptolemaic period or other relatively late periods are often indistinguishable from objects supposedly produced during earlier' periods of Egyptian history. It is likely that what often causes Ptolemaic material to be dated to that period rather than to the New Kingdom' is not style' but rather the presence of a mixture of Greek and Egyptian inscriptions or the presence of Greek names written in the Egyptian alphabet. However, when such tell-tale signs are absent, Egyptologists have erroneously placed the Ptolemaic material in the New Kingdom'. The Anomalous Use of Old' and Middle' Egyptian It is axiomatic that living languages constantly change. Thus, the opening paragraph of the ...

209. Greek Estimates of the Synodic Month [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. I No. 3 (Fall 1975) Home | Issue Contents Greek Estimates of the Synodic Month Livio Stecchini The problem that Meton intended to solve was- which is the smallest number of solar years than can be divided exactly into a series of more or less alternating months of 30 and 29 days? He knew that solar years are about 365.25 days and that a lunar month is about 29.5 days. He counted that 19 solar years are 19 x 365.25 = 6939.75 days. He assumed that 19 solar years are 6940 days, either because he did not take 365.25 as an exact figure or ...

... Saturn is said to have dwelt "in the centre of the earth." The Egyptian "earth god" is Seb (or Geb). That is, writes Budge, "the earth formed his body and was called the house of Seb. (4 )'" But if Seb's body was the earth, why did the Greek historian Plutarch translate Seb as Kronos (Saturn)? (5 ) What connection of the planet Saturn and the "earth" might have justified this identity? Of course the common English translation, "earth," naturally suggests to the modern mind our planet suspended in space. But to the ancients no such detached view was possible ...
