291. Velikovsky and his Heroes [Articles]
... to pave the road of electromagnetism in the cosmos, twenty years later, Einstein had found solace in shrinking the earth with all its rampant evil that he was suffering from, into an insignificant cosmic context. The final section of Velikovsky's Ages in Chaos series has yet to be published. Originally entitled, revealingly, The Age of Isaiah and Homer, it grew into two sections, The Assyrian Conquest, and Dark Ages of Greece, from which considerable extracts have been published over the last decade. It is curious that even when Velikovsky finally overcame his reluctance to publish Peoples of the Sea and Ramses II, he still held back this volume, the volume which was needed to ...

... One instance will be found appended to this Essay, of modern alluvial formations proceeding with considerably increased rapidity. . 136 THEORY OF THE EARTH. The memoir by M. Dolomieu respecting Egypt,* tends to prove that the tongue of land on which Alexander caused his famous commercial city to be built, did not exist in the days of Homer ; because they were then able to navigate directly from the island of Pharos into the gulf afterwards called Lams Mareotis ; and that this ^gulf, as indicated by Menelaus, was between fifteen and twenty leagues in length. Supposing this to be accurate, it had only required the lapse of nine hundred years, from the days of ...

... in the new Empire of Letters. A reserved knowledge, that too, and far from our cliché of the "common man," for Christ addressed himself to "those who have ears to hear." Simone Weil, lost in the turmoil of the Second World War, thought she saw a retrospective answer in the Greeks, in Homer himself, who had been called the Teacher of Greece. She called the Iliad the "Poem of Force" because it showed Force at the center of human history, a powerful and clear mirror of man's condition — with no soothing nonsense added. Death for the vanquished, nemesis for the conqueror — these are two members of the ...

... axis of the sphere, the pole of tile universe is, Devic says, altered from al-kutb, the axle, the pole, the polar star. There is likewise in TanAgra (wrote Pausanias, ix, 20) a place called Poloson ; and here they say that AtLas sat, diligently investigating subterranean and celestial affairs; and that Homer, agreeably to this, says: "AtLas, her sire, by whose all-piercing Eye the depths of every sea are clearly seen; and who the lofty pillars strenuous rears, which every way divide the Earth from heavens."105 Poloson here must clearly refer to the Pole. Is it a foreign word? Some of Liddell ...

... Mars by Polynesian skywatchers, as we have seen elsewhere. (143) Recall further that it is in the cults of the Greek Ares and Latin Mars that one meets with this strange berserker-like furor, where death is dealt out with an indiscriminate zest. Ares, the god inherent in the savagery of war and battle, was invoked by Homer as "the manslaughtering, bloodstained stormer of walls." (144) Ares' demeanor was typically described by such epithets as lyssa, signifying "martial rage, raving, frenzy", and mania, signifying "madness, frenzy." (145) His propensity for fighting first for one side, then for another, earned ...

... the dark bands seen today on the canopies of the planets Jupiter and Saturn. I cannot conceive of a brilliant canopy that had not dark and light bands and belts in striking contrast. Old Night simply expressed the vast concealment. This is another Feature the annular student must admit. When the sun was concealed it went into primeval darkness. Homeric and Hesiodic sun-setting is very far from being our sunset. I cannot find that Homer's Sun went down when it disappeared. It went "heis hypo gaian", and who is there can render that a "going down into the under world" and be satisfied with his translation? The Sun went in under the concealing cloud. ...

... time a shower which reached into Austria fell as colored snow in the Alps to the depth of nine feet. As modern researches have proven that colored snows are filled with organisms, giving the color thereto, we can scarcely imagine the immensity of organic matter in such showers, and can hardly conceive it to have had a terrestrial origin. Homer speaks in the Iliad of one of these organic showers. In Northern Europe such snows have frequently been seen, and sometimes they have been accompanied with carbon dust, which must have had its origin outside of the realm of atmospherics oxygen. A few years since such a shower fell in Western Kentucky. They also have been seen in ...

... ally where heard of; for as for the Lycurguses, and Solons, and Zaleucus Locrensis, and all those legislators who are so admired by the Greeks, they seem to be of yesterday, if compared with our legislator, insomuch as the very name of a law was not so much as known in old times among the Grecians. Homer is a witness to the truth of this observation, who never uses that term in all his poems; for indeed there was then no such thing among them, but the multitude was governed by wise maxims, and by the injunctions of their king. It was also a long time that they continued in the use of these unwritten ...

... might collapse on him. "How that belief arose, we can only surmise. It may be that in the dim past, when the ancestors of these tribes developed out of hunters into herdsmen and emerged from the forest on to the open plain, they missed the big tree that seemed to support the sky ( 'heaven-reaching' as Homer calls it). And in the absence of the mighty prop there was nothing to guarantee the safety of their roof [the sky]. "Now early man was a practical person. His roof being insecure, he proceeded to shore it up." (171) One observer after another confuses the symbol with the prototype. ...
