91. Jupiter God of Abraham (Part IV) [Journals] [Kronos]
... middle" - that is Jupiter. Among the thundering planets, in other words, Jupiter seems to have been the prime wielder. The thunderbolt was, in fact, the Jovian god's favorite weapon . Ovid referred to "Jove the thunderer".(289) Horace wrote of "Jupiter's great hand dispensing thunder".(290) Homer described how Zeus "held fast in his hands the thunderbolt'.(291) The Rig Veda lauds Indra/Jupiter(292) as the king who "holds, firmly grasped, the thunder"(293) and "whose right hand wields the bolt".(294) Of Brihaspati/Jupiter(295) it was ...
92. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... have wracked our planet within the last 500 years, so their descriptions of disaster must have a phylogenetic base. But if recent poets have regularly recreated accurate images of destructions that occurred millennia before, how can Velikovsky and his successors be so positive that their own sources are eyewitness accounts of the supposed events? Could not Isaiah, Ipuwer, Homer, the author of the Inanna verses, and other very ancient writers have recalled' incidents that happened much earlier? Or maybe Amos and Thomas and the others worked with archetypes that are unrelated to actual events; or maybe the creative process is an entirely individual phenomenon and the supposed similarity of themes and images merely illusory and accidental. ...
93. The Cosmic Double Helix [Journals] [Aeon]
... to classical Greece. So far, I have been able to collect parallels from ancient Mesopotamia, Phoenicia and Mesoamerica. Further research will hopefully reveal additional examples from other parts of the world. Aztec jade-mosaic double-headed serpent. The caduceus [MAv11] was essentially a golden rod with two serpents entwined, black and white. According to the received Homeric tradition Hermes received the caduceus from Apollo, who handed it to him saying: "I give unto thee the wondrous staff of abundance and wealth, the golden trefoil branch which is not subject to death and which will protect thee."  Hermes' possession of the golden rod earned him the sobriquet chrysorrapis, "of ...
94. The Transfiguration of Trauma [Books] [de Grazia books]
... and one can only stay asleep so long as the unconscious problems that bother him most are censored and reworked into a form, which, while often disgusting and disturbing upon recollection, is nevertheless better than the unconscious reality. To discover the latent wish whose fulfillment keeps one asleep is not always easy, as many a psychiatrist will attest. Homer tried his hand at it, in an astonishing scientific leap over two millennia: It is dark. Odysseus has returned to his palace. He presents himself to Penelope, his wife, in the disguise of an old beggar who has some knowledge of her husband, the long-wandering king of Ithaca. He wins her confidence. Penelope speaks ...
95. The Sibylline Oracles [Books]
... authors were used with a freedom which would now be considered less than honest. The works or fragments so produced had one of two motives always, and sometimes both : the propagation of the Jewish faith and the enhancing of the credit and status of Judaism. History was represented by a pseudo-HecatŠus, poetry by spurious verses attributed to Orpheus, Homer, Hesiod, Ăschylus, Sophocles, Philemon, Menander. Orpheus was made to recant his polytheism and proclaim the one true God: Sophocles to foretell the end of the world by fire and the future blessedness of the righteous. All this was merely a forcible entry upon the heritage of the Hellenes; the major premiss underlying it was ...
96. The Knowledge Industry [Books] [de Grazia books]
... the hundreds and even thousands. His sole talk at NYU drew hundreds of students and professors several years ago. I have worked for a decade on problems raised by Dr. Velikovsky since the publication of my book, "The Velikovsky Affair." in 1963, and am presently going to press with another book on the disasters of the Homeric Age. A heavy flow of written materials and archaeological reports has begun and promises to be practically endless. There is a need for an academic center for presenting and discussing the problems they present to all fields. Excellent scholars are available to participate. I suggest that such an Institute might be held from July 1-20, 1974, at ...
97. The Laughing Gods [Books] [de Grazia books]
... of Poseidon and Earth. Michael G. Reade, in a brilliant study of perplexing perturbations registered in the famous "Ramesside Star Tables" of Egypt, has fixed the critical year to which they refer as around-700, about the time of our Love Affair. It would be the time of the Trojan War, too, when Homer says, as Lattimore translates the line (p . 405), Poseidon "shuddered all illimitable Earth, the sheer heads of mountains." We quote Reade's conclusions. ". .. the axis of the earth was forced out of its hitherto normal alignment with the stars at a season shortly after the summer solstice... ...
98. The Founding of Rome [Books] [de Grazia books]
... From: The Burning of Troy, by Alfred De Grazia Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER THREE The Founding of Rome For some time now, the founding of Rome has been accredited to truculent Latin rustics lost in the miasma of VIII century history. The more glorious legend of its establishment by Homeric heroes, particularly Aeneas, prince of Troy, has been in abeyance. However, in the light of recent theory and newly uncovered fact, the two stories can be blended in to a credible account. To suggest the new history is my purpose here. To begin with, I would allude to two larger ideas, which we shall be carrying into the Italian setting. One ...

HOMER Hymn to Apollo. APOLLO was especially the deity beloved of the Ionians, the most cultured and artistic of all the Greeks. The elegance and refinement that was Greek was in origin Ionian, its most brilliant facet reflected in the Ionian cult of Apollo, it having been said with truth that through his worship the brightest side of the Hellenic mind was reflected. Yet with all this the ethnology of the Ionians ...
