61. The Birth and Death of Memory [Books] [de Grazia books]
... , by Alfred De Grazia Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER FIFTEEN The Birth and Death of Memory In Pieria, Memoria, ruler of the hills of Eleuther, gave birth to the Muses out of union with Zeus, son of Chronos, and thus of the forgetting of ills and a rest from sorrow. So writes Hesiod, a contemporary of Homer in his Genealogy of the Gods. The Theogony was composed after 730 B.C ., that is, during or after the era of troubled skies; but it was a mythical work, "reporting" on events that had occurred hundreds and thousands of year before. "The ordered pantheon of Hesiod ended in supplanting the anarchic ...
62. Khima and Kesil [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Venus, much more massive and stronger than itself. To the peoples of the world this prolonged combat must have appeared as a very valiant action of Mars, not resting, but coming up again and again to attack the stupendous Venus, or it must have appeared as a foolish action of going again and again against the stronger planet. HOMER described the celestial battles as actions of foolishness on the part of Mars. Thus Kesil, or "fool", among the planets named in the Old Testament is most probably Mars. "If not for the heat of Kesil the world would not fare well, because it counterbalances the cooling effect of Khima." This sentence is ...

... its relation to the cosmic twins, and the association of both to the so-called thunderbolts of the gods. page 59. Puritanism, Misogyny, and Female Sexuality, by E. J. Bond An analysis of the long-upheld subordination of women, stemming from their innate sexuality, as preached by Judeo-Christian religions down through the ages. Page 73 Homer in the Baltic by Felice Vinci A new theory which claims that the geography of Homer's epic poetry fits better in the Baltic and North Atlantic than it does on the Mainland of Greece and the Aegean Sea. This leads to the additional conclusion that the early Greek legends originated in Nordic lands, from where they were transposed to Greece by ...
64. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... always strived for clarity. It therefore comes as something of a surprise when Shelley-Pearce asks: what does Cardona mean when he states that'Homer, after all, was merely a poet and his Iliad nothing but a poetic saga'? I did not think that statement needed further clarification. What I meant by it is precisely what I said. Homer simply weaved a poetic tale - a tremendous one at that - centred around the siege of Troy with divine intervention thrown in for good measure. But the Iliad is neither the history of a war, which it only partly covers (not even one year of a ten-year siege), nor a reportage of cosmic catastrophism. At bottom ...
65. Hittites and Phrygians [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... did not exist, then these second millennium Mycenaean temples must belong to the first millenniurn (9th and 8th centuries).35 At Carchemish, seat of the imperial Hittite viceroys of Syria, no strata associated with the Urartian hegemony have been discovered. However, Hittite connections are obvious. In Worlds in Collision Velikovsky36 links the Trojan War, Homer, and the collapse of Mycenae with the Mars catastrophe he proposes occurred in the late 8th century age of Isaiah. Mycenae, in his scheme, was thus the contemporary of Urartu and we may suppose the latter was subject to similar dislocation by Velikovsky's series of earth shocks. Into Greece came the invading Dorians from, the northwest. ...

THE current derivation of labyrinth is unsatisfying, if not eccentric: " Put for Xafvp:vBos ; from Xafpa, usually Xavpa, a lane, alley, Homer, Od. xxii' 128." This does not deal with the termination -pivBos, nor does it get us very far with the word Xa'"8ipo-; a pitfall, or labrum' "" poetically [i .e . mythologically?] a ditch with a raised bank of earth: Moeniaque in valli formam ...
68. The Art Of Warfare. Part I Ch.3 (Peoples of the Sea) [Velikovsky]
... The conclusion that these soldiers were archaic Greeks has already been arrived at by scholars who explain the events narrated and illustrated by Ramses III as a Greek invasion of Egypt that took place soon after the fall of Troy: more properly these particular warriors would be described as Mycenaean Greeks and their confederates or, if one prefers the classification, as Homeric Greeks, the Trojan War having been fought by the last generation of the Hellenes, whose leader, Agamemnon, son of Atreus, was king of Mycenae. To support the identification of Denien with Mycenaean Greeks, it was argued that Denien (Dnn) stands for Danaans (a Homeric term for archaic Greeks). Some texts, ...

70. Velikovsky's Sources Volume One [Books]
... little or nothing to do with the planetary aspect of the goddess : " When, at the instigation of his mother, Gaea, the audacious Cronus had castrated his father, Uranus, he cast the severed genitals into the sea. They floated on the surface of the waters, producing a white foam from which rose Aphrodite." In Homer we are given an alternative legend that Aphrodite was the daughter of Zeus and Dione (LEM p.144)- which might appear to give us the Jupiter link we need, until we remember that Zeus was the father of a great many offspring, among them Selene, the moon (LEM p.162) and Ares ( ...
