151. Indra's Theft of the Sun-God's Wheel [Journals] [Aeon]
... remark upon the intimate relationship, amounting to an identification, between the warrior-goddess and the heaven-hurled thunderbolt of Zeus. (153) In the Iliad, it will be remembered, Athena was described as a comet-like body (aster). (154) The latter term, significantly, is cognate with asterope, one of several terms employed by Homer of Zeus' heaven-hurled bolt. (155) Other Greek writers, however, preserve the tradition that lightning originated from the eye of the god: "The jealous eye of God hurls the lightning down." (156) A close parallel to the Eye of Zeus can be found in Hindu tradition, whereby lightning is said to ...
152. Sandal-straps and Semiology [Books] [de Grazia books]
... that part of an ancient drama in which occurs the denouement; the plot, having reached its culmination, descends, often precipitously. In a plea for the innocents, I would suggest that what we know of Greek etymology is based upon late sources. We know only several hundred words of Minoan and Mycenean, catastrophe not among them. Homer and Hesiod do not employ the word, and they are the earliest of our Greek sources. I am fortified in my opinion that catastrophe originally meant disaster (dys-aster) by more than this lack of sources of early Greek usage. There is a common tendency in linguistics for people to put two words together ungrammatically and against the ordinary ...

Whilst agreeing with David Rohl on the need to abolish the non-existent Dark Age of Greece, Dwardu Cardona argues that the Iliad is nothing but a poetic saga and that Homer's Troy has yet to be discovered.

154. Editor's Notes [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Workshop and C&C Review journals. This issue contains a major reappraisal by Trevor Palmer of the contributions and thinking of Darwin, Lyell and the other major Victorian scientists in the middle of the 19th century - developing the ideas outlined in his book Catastrophism, Neocatastrophism and Evolution. Benny Peiser questions orthodox thinking about the dating and origin of Homer, and Gunnar Heinsohn asks some awkward questions about the archaeology of the Middle East, focussing on the site of Hazor. Phillip Clapham suggests a radical solution to the identity of the mythical substance shamir and I have included a brief review of current debate on Einstein's relativity theory. This issue also features a major review by Geoffrey Gammon on ...
155. On Number as Artifact (Part 3: Conclusion) [Journals] [Horus]
... given month simply by noting the phase of the moon. There is one maddening defect, however. The lunar months and the solar year do not come out even. Twelve lunar months are 11 days too short, while thirteen lunar months are 18 days too long.[1 ] The numbers 11 and 12 play a prominent role in Homeric, Pythagorean, and Socratic thought - in fact, in Western culture generally. But try to find the numbers 13 and l& This corroborates what is already known of Western calendar-making, which since Mesopotamia and Egypt has always favored the 12month year. Interestingly, the pre-Columbian cultures in Mexico and Central America have shown a no less demonstrable ...
156. Remembering Velikovsky [Journals] [Aeon]
... at that time a freshman at Oriel College, who had himself been introduced to it by Rabbi Sidney Leperer, the Jewish student chaplain at Oxford, whose immense erudition was, and is, only matched by his gentle kindness. My reaction on first reading Velikovsky echoed the great Romantic poet, John Keats, who, on first opening Chapman's Homer had remarked: "Then felt I as some watcher of the skies / When a new planet swims into his ken." A new universe had begun to open up to me. If Velikovsky was right, the underpinnings and assumptions of virtually every intellectual discipline needed to be radically rethought. The huge array of evidence he amassed, ...

159. Phobos And Deimos [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... | Issue Contents Phobos And Deimos Lynn E. Rose In KRONOS VII:2 (Winter, 1982), page 62, I wrote as follows: "The Greeks had several words for fear, the sensation of fear. The expression or manifestation of fear was the panic flight from the feared object. This distinction is of at least Homeric vintage. The two basic kinds of fear were early personified as Phobos and Deimos, the monstrous offspring [some would say attendants] of Ares (Mars), and in the nineteenth century these very names were given to the newly discovered (or rediscovered) satellites of the planet Mars." The context of these remarks was a ...
160. The Terrible Ones, Part 2 Mars Ch.5 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... ifferent orbits, grew quickly from small to giant size, and terrorized the peoples of the earth. And when, soon after the impact of Venus and Mars, Mars began to threaten the earth, the new comets, running very close to the earth, added to the terror, con tinually recalling the hour of peril. Ares of Homer, going into battle, is accompanied by never resting horrible creatures, Terror, Rout, and Discord. Terror and Rout yoke the gleaming horses of Ares, themselves dreadful beasts, also known by these names; Discord, "sister and comrade of man- slaying Ares, rageth incessantly; she at the first rears her crest but ...
