11. Ladder to Heaven [Journals] [Aeon]
... angels of God" made a practice of ascending and descending Jacob's ladder. The Chain Of Arrows The ladder-to-heaven motif is particularly prominent in the New World. Thus, the pioneering anthropologist Franz Boas observed that "the scaling of heaven is a saga which occurs very often in America." [7 ] An oral tradition collected from the Tlingit Indians of British Columbia relates that, once upon a time, the son of a great chief absentmindedly set about shooting arrows upon the sudden disappearance of his friend: "He thought, Now I am going to shoot that star next to the moon. ' In that spot was a large and very bright one. He shot an arrow ...

... the common belief of antiquity, as expressed in universal tradition, was much more likely to be true than the written opinions of a few prejudiced individuals. And then grave and able men, - philosophers, scientists, -were seen with notebooks and pencils, going out into random villages, into German cottages, into Highland huts, into Indian tepees, in short, into all lands, taking down with the utmost care, accuracy, and respect, the fairy stories, myths, and legends of the people ;as repeated by old peasant-women, " the knitters in the sun," or by " gray-haired warriors, famous for rights. ' ' And, when they ...

... ught the phenomenon was an expression of heavenly wrath at the crime of the Argive tyrants. The Latins thought the phenomenon was an omen associated with Romulus, son of Mars. In the Icelandic epos the same event has a different purpose, in the Finnish e pos another, and yet others in Japan and Mexico and Polynesia. The American Indians say that the sun went backwards several degrees for fear of a boy who tried to snare it or because of some animal that terrified it. Precisely because there are great dif ferences in the subjective evaluation of the causes or purposes of the phenomenon, we can assume that the folklore of different peoples deals with one and the same factual ...

... of eminent scientific names. In latitude they range from Greenland to Central Africa, and in longitude from America to Central Asia. Of the whole number, the two which seem to command the widest and weightiest support are, first, the hypothesis that " Lemuria " a wholly imaginary, now submerged prehistoric continent under the northern portion of the Indian Ocean was the "mother-region" of the race; and, secondly, that it was in the heart of Central Asia. The former of these sites is the one supported by Haeckel, Caspari, Peschell and many others.6 Though less positive, Darwin and Lyell seem favorable to the same location or to one in the adjoining ...

... is far removed from any underlying storm motif, let alone from the cometary catastrophes of V's scenario. (The only details that are recognisably stormy are a) the breaking down of the divisions between the plots of rice in spring and b) the heavenly piebald colts of autumn, which Aston p.40 relates to the spotted deer of Indian myth- ie clouds- see Part 2, p.130.) One of Aston's footnotes is also relevant to this distancing of the myth from its origins; "Amaterasu no Oho- kami is throughout the greater part of this narrative an anthropomorphic deity, with little that is specially characteristic of her solar functions. Here, however ...

... fall away nearly as often as do the intensities of experience contained in a story and that our first task is to restore energy to the telling of tales rather than to look for mysterious psychological needs and motivations in their origin. An example from our own history illustrates my point. In 1886 the Apache warrior Geronimo escaped from the San Carlos Indian reservation in Arizona and with a small band of people made good his exit to Mexico. Twelve years after this brief escapade when the Indian Depredations Act made it possible for non-Indians to sue the Indians for acts of war in which the non-Indians suffered at the hands of the tribes, a man named Moeller W. Scott sued the United ...

... Appendix 4 It is as yet too early in the day to deal with "Uncle Kamsa," whom lexicographers make a "mura-deva," allegedly a "venerator of roots" (mula/mura = root). In his Eine Beitrage (p . 11), Jarl Charpentier earnestly wishes us to accept as that "among the Indian natives fighting against the invading Aryans there were such," namely, "venerators of roots" (and venerators of worms as well). Although we do not doubt that the species Homo sapiens is capable of any "belief," we cannot perceive any cogent reason for subscribing to Charpentier's view. 361 Mula/mura, the ...

... There is a curious copper pillar, the Sorinto, at Nikko which is said to be one of six in various parts of Japan. The present pillar was put-up in 1643, and is a cylinder 42 feet high.6Its Japanese pedigree seems to be Buddhist and the syllable to, Mr. Aston says,7 " is merely the Indian word tope, which also appears in Korean, rod in some Chinese dialects as tap, and in Siam as sathup. The term To is not confined to large pagodas or pillars, small structures consisting of thirteen single stones piled one on another are not infrequent in Japan, and are known by the same name.

CHAPTER II THE LAND OF LIGHT Kinship between Egypt and India is very closely marked, so that debate arises as to which country can rightfully claim the oldest astronomical knowledge. In support of the Indian theory, it is said that the so-called Eastern Ethiopians, a matured people, who colonized the Egyptian territory, which was the home of the Kushite, or Hamitic, race, came from southern India. The lower part of Egypt had been formerly a gulf of the sea, but the sediment of thousands of years, brought down ...
