41. The Death of Heracles [Journals] [Aeon]
... extant tragedy dealing with the cycle of Heracles. (1 ) The play also forms the most complete account of the events leading up to the hero's death, and thus must figure prominently in any discussion of the hero's mythus. Opinions of the play vary enormously. It has been called "one of the boldest and most powerful creations of Greek dramatic poetry." (2 ) Other critics, however, have not been so kind. Sorum called it "a troublesome play." (3 ) Its standard epithets, according to Segal, include "inferior, imperfect, very poor and insipid, gloomy, dark, puzzling, odd, nebulous, curious, bitter, ...
42. Velikovsky and the Problem of Planetary Identification [Journals] [Aeon]
... of myth. Velikovsky's thesis is supported by the fact that the oldest symbols of the gods in Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Mesoamerica are stars. (1 ) That the ancient gods were celestial objects seems obvious; what is not obvious, however, is which gods represent which celestial objects. Velikovsky himself relied extensively upon the testimony of ancient Greeks for his planetary identifications. With little exception, Velikovsky took the statements of Greek writers at face value; thus he accepted the identification of Apollo with the sun, Aphrodite with the Moon, Hera with the Earth, Ares with Mars, Hermes with Mercury, Kronos with Saturn, and Zeus with Jupiter. (2 ) The one ...
43. Oedipus and Akhnaton [Journals] [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 2 No 3: (Fall 1972) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered II" Home | Issue Contents Oedipus and Akhnaton Cyrus Gordon "However much one may cavil on this detail or that, Velikovsky has succeeded in identifying Oedipus as the Greek reflex of the historical Akhnaton." Dr. Cyrus Gordon is chairman of the department of Mediterranean studies, Brandeis University. His most recent book is Before Columbus. Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky's Oedipus and Akhnaton (Doubleday, Garden City, New York, 1960) is a tour de force that merits several rereadings. While it is written with clarity as well as verve, it involves material from different disciplines. In ...
44. Apollo and the Planet Mars [Journals] [Aeon]
... Issue Contents Apollo and the Planet Mars Ev Cochrane In the Birth of Tragedy, Friedrich Nietzsche developed the aesthetic dialectic of the Apollonian and the Dionysian, concepts which were to become a permanent part of our culture. For Nietzsche the Apollinian force symbolized all that was light, harmonious, and orderly, the form-giving force apparent in the best of Greek architecture and sculpture. The Dionysian force, in contrast, represented that which was dark and wild; epitomized best, perhaps, by the reckless abandon and mystic ecstacy of the Dionysian rites described in Euripedes' Bacchae. The modern conception of Apollo-including scholarly research into the origins of the god's cult-has been much influenced by Nietzsche's analysis. Witness ...

46. Homer in the Baltic [Journals] [Aeon]
... through many generations the memory of the heroic age and the feats performed by their ancestors in their lost homeland was preserved and handed down to the following ages. This key allows us to easily open many doors that have been shut tight until now, as well as to consider the age-old question of the Indo-European diaspora and the origin of the Greek civilization from a new perspective. * * * * * * * Greece (Map by John Green.) Ever since ancient times, Homeric geography has given rise to problems and uncertainty. The conformity of towns, countries, and islands which the poet often describes with a wealth of detail, with traditional Mediterranean places is usually only ...
47. Trails Over the Sea. Part 2 (Oedipus and Akhnaton) [Velikovsky]
... Mycenae and Egypt in the same age-and how far is it from Mycenae to Athens? Only fifty-five miles as the crow flies. If a signet of Queen Tiy reached Mycenae, her story would have reached it too, and the neighboring cities as well. As we have already said, the city on the Nile had been known to the Greeks by the name of Thebes since the time of Homer; the Egyptian name for it was No (the residence) or No-Amon. Then why did the Greeks call the city in Egypt by the name of the city in Boeotia? Or if, conversely, the Greeks first called the Egyptian city by that name and later transferred the ...
48. Planetary Identities: II The Mythology of Homer [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Bernard Cook's monumental study in three volumes. Yet it is strange that, with all his erudition and encyclopaedic knowledge, he commences his work with the most absurd equation which he then uses as a base from which to launch his investigation. Here are the opening words of his work [6 ]: "The supreme deity of the ancient Greeks, during their historical period at least, was Zeus. His name, referable to a root that means to shine', may be rendered the Bright One'. And, since a whole series of related words in the various languages of the Indo-European family is used to denote day' or sky', it can be safely ...
... Formation of The Mediterranean As we have seen, the Mediterranean in its present form did not exist at the time when Atlantis flourished and Luna was still an independent planet. There are a number of references to this state of things in Plato's Atlantis myth, including some which are very distinct in spite of Plato's general hesitation in geophysical matters. Greek mythology and ancient geography (whose `historical' information was largely dependent on traditional lore) seem to assume that the Mediterranean was only formed within human memory, so to speak, while the Ocean had existed longer than even the gods knew. A very significant reference occurs in the passage (23b) where the Egyptian priest asserts that ...
50. From Ramses III To Darius III. Part I Ch.5 (Peoples of the Sea) [Velikovsky]
... From "Peoples of the Sea" © 1977 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents From Ramses III To Darius III The Later Ramessides IN THE PRECEDING pages we confronted the historical material from Greek and Egyptian sources and arrived at the conclusion that Nectanebo I of the Greek authors is an alter ego of Ramses III of modern historians, or Usimare-meramun Ramesse-hekaon of the Egyptian royal monuments and official papyri. In his own time and especially among the Greeks he was known as Nectanebo, the name he might have occasionally used in less formal situations. Whether this was so or whether Ramses III had, as is known to have occurred with other pharaohs, more than one set ...
