161. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Four [Books]
... The City of God' by Augustine it is written: From the book of Marcus Varro, entitled Of the Lace of the Woman People', I cite word for word the following instance: There occurred a remarkable celestial portent; for Castor records that in the brilliant star Venus, called Vesperugo by Plautus, and the lovely Hesperus by Homer, there occurred so strange a prodigy, that it changed its colour, size, form, course, which never happened before nor since. Adrastus of Cyzicus, and Dion of Naples, famous mathematicians, said that this occurred in the reign of Ogyges." V here draws on Augustine's Book xxi, Chapter 8. The context ...
162. Cultural Amnesia [Books]
... dichotomy is illustrated on the one hand by the way the escapees from Egypt interpreted the noises caused by the folding and twisting of strata, noises of the screeching Earth described also by Hesiod - the Israelites heard in them a voice giving ethical commands. Elsewhere on the tortured Earth, other races responded differently: Compare Olympus to Sinai. The Homeric scandals on Olympus occurred at the time of the cataclysms; this was the other reaction. Another example comes from Heraclitus  who compared the different descriptions of the Pantheon by Plato and by Homer. We see then, past and present, both reactions to calamity. Planet Gods The inability to accept the catastrophic past is the ...
163. Book Shelf [Journals] [Aeon]
... than my own, which acknowledges the differences in ancient perspectives about the Amazons. Blok's attempt, however, seems superficial, since Part One mostly centers on explaining previous research she has read and seems to have little relevance to the rest of the book. The last two thirds are divided into four topical parts. The first deals with the Homeric formula, where the Amazons are briefly mentioned in the Iliad and other Archaic epics. The second part explores the story of Achilles and Penthesileia, which developed from the Homeric formula. The third attempts to explain the entrance of Priam and Bellerophon into the Amazon corpus. And the final part deals with Herakles and the sixth-century changes that occurred ...

... was not much life left in me." Hephaistos mentions the event once more, when Thetis asks him to forge the shield for her son Achilles (18.39Sff.): "She saved me when I suffered much at the time of my great fall through the will of my own brazen-faced mother [n22 That is not what Homer says, it is kunopis, dog-eyed; Hera seems to have been near Sirius at that time.], who wanted to hide me for being lame. Then my soul would have taken much suffering had not Eurynome and Thetis caught me and held me. Eurynome, daughter of Ocean, whose stream bends back in a circle. ...
166. The River of Ocean [Journals] [SIS Review]
... not far to seek. In the Theogony it is told how Gaea and Uranus begot a son whom Hesiod described as deep-whirling Okeanos' . Elsewhere in the epic poem Okeanos is described as a circling stream' , the stream itself being alluded to as that of famous Okeanos' . According to Homer, it was this stream called Okeanos that girdled the world . Robert Graves now tells us that Homer's myth is a version of the Pelasgian creation story' in which the role of Okeanos (also rendered Oceanus) was played by Ophion . The Pelasgian Ophion, of course, was our old friend the ...

... had a longer history somewhere, perhaps indeed at Troy, is indicated by their adoration of the whole Olympic family, and the impregnation of their institutions by them. For instance, the Roman consuls served for a Venusian-length year. Greeks who survived the disorders of sky and planet chanted of the battle of the gods, in the language of Homer. Among the principal figures who engaged in conflict at Troy under the aegis of Zeus were Athena-Odysseus-Venus, Ares-Paris-Mars, and Aphrodite-Helen-Moon. Troy was only one of the many cities destroyed in this period, nor was this the first destruction of that city over the millennia. The Spartans made human sacrifices to Ares, and sacrificed dogs as well ...

... can again locate the features that appeared to portray eyes, nose, mouth, and enclosure in the Viking imagery. Remarkably, secondary facial characteristics not previously seen (eyebrow, pupil, nostrils, lips) now also appear, each with the correct relative size, shape, location, and orientation. Felice Vinci, ENEL, Rome: Homer in the Baltic "Homer in the Baltic": why? Since ancient times the Homeric geography was considered discrepant with the Mediterranean Greek world (for instance, the position of Ithaca, the Peloponnese plain, etc.). The key for penetrating this world is furnished by Plutarch, who in one of his works, the " ...

... bicameral voice. Osiris commands the building of the pyramids to his glory in the same way that a millennium later Yahweh with great architectural detail commands Moses to build an ark and a tabernacle to his glory (Exodus 25-27), or as the Greek earth Goddess, Demeter, commands that a temple be built at Eleusis to her glory (Homeric Hymn to Demeter, lines 271ff.), or in many other examples. In Egypt, however, when the pharaoh dies - as we would call the process - he is absorbed into his "ka" and then both are absorbed into Osiris as is depicted many times on funerary walls - even perhaps as Jesus after his resurrection ...
