201. The Afar Triangle As the Nether Reaches of Eden and Babel [Journals] [Aeon]
... . (7 ) Not only do Dietz and Holden refer to India's journey as "rapid" (page 108) and "remarkable" (pages 109 and 113), but they are also obliged to attribute it to "favorable" (page 105) and even "ideal" (page 113) conditions: they say that the Indian plate was "nearly a perfect rectangle" (page 105) that "glided freely along parallel megashears' on its eastern and western boundaries, without interacting with the other crustal plates of the world" (page 105), and thus "made the longest migration of all the drifting land masses: approximately 9,000 kilometers in ...
202. On the Disproportion between Geological Time and Historical Time Part One - Of Apes and Men [Journals] [SIS Review]
... and implements were found at Vero, Florida, in association with Ice Age animals such as the sabre-toothed tiger, which became extinct long before man is supposed to have arrived in America (c .11,500 BC). Anthropologists Ales Hrdlicka and W. H. Holmes concluded that since the pottery was similar to that of the mound-building Indian tribes who inhabited Florida before Columbus, the bones must have been of recent origin. This is no doubt true, but then it also follows that the Ice Age was recent, for as E. H. Sellards pointed out, the stratigraphical position of the bones, their intimate association with fauna which died out during the Pleistocene and ...
203. Radiocarbon Dating The Extinction [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... the usual primitive arts'; the human remains and relics could not be of an antiquity `comparable with that of fossil remains with which they are associated. ' He also published the opinion of W. H. Holmes... who investigated the pottery.... These were bowls such as were in common use among the Indian tribes of Florida. ' When compared with vessels from Florida earth mounds, no significant distinction can be made; in material thickness of walls, finish of rims, surface finish, color, state of preservation, and size and shape, ' the vessels are identical. ' There thus appears not the least ground in the evidence of ...
204. Night of the Gods: Polar Myths. The Eye of Heaven [Books]
... read ut'at ; and art, " a part of Thebes comprising doubtless the temple of Karnak " (J . de Rough) was written glyph or glyph Ar and ut'at both occur in the names of the daughters of Amenrut and of king Takelot, called ArBastUt'at-n-Nifu glyph and ArBastUt'at-n-Nif glyph. The central cosmic character of the Eye is shown in Indian myth where Chakshus (Eye) espouses Akuti the goddess of the Extreme (Avestan aku = point), and so becomes father to Manu, who again has 12 (zodiacal) sons, the Yamas.24 Of the hundred (that is the unlimited number of the) eyes of Argos, who is nothing but the shining heavens ...

... achieved. (The examples accompanying this interview appear under the heading "The Eyes of the Goddess" in Gimbutas' groundbreaking work. The result is not a naturalistic owl, but a transitional form that is impossible to miss.) FEATHERED HEADDRESS Radiant halo as crown or headdress. (From Mexico.) AEON: What about North American Indian war bonnets? Do they not also seem to connote a radiating crown? Talbott: Of course. But, generally, when the experts look at the feathered headdress, they have no reason to consider the key symbolic links of the feathers- to celestial radiance, to Venus, and to the mythical prototype of the comet. They ...
206. Sothic Dating: A "Surrealjoinder" (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... Poona) in 1890, my own copy being a 1959 reissue published by Motilal Dass (Delhi). The entry under "Kartikeya", lengthy though it is, contains the word "Mars" only a single time - in the following sentence quoted verbatim in its entirety: "Kartikeya is the Mars or god of war of the Indian mythology" (p . 145, last column, lines 3 and 4 of the entry under "Kartikeya"). Note that Apte does not state that Kartikeya is Mars, even less that it is a Sanskrit name of the planet Mars: he does say that Kartikeya is "the Mars" and, lest that reference be ...

... of the flame of the sun; But Aquarius enflamed strong Phaeinos (Saturn's) might; Uranus himself arose, until he shook the fighters; In rage threw them down to earth 530 Thus suddenly fallen to Okeenos' bath They set fire to the whole land (earth?); the Ether was left without stars PARALLEL PASSAGE 206 Ye Indians, do not believe yourselves safe, nor ye, proud Ethiopians! For when the great wheel of Capricorn's axis turns around these, And Taurus with Gemini around the centre of Heaven, (when) Virgo Is rising and the sun, around the stars 210 Its belt fixed, rules the universe all around; A great celestial fire ...
208. Pillars of Straw [Journals] [Aeon]
... without any tools other than stones and their great ingenuity can be seen."  And yet, as Jean-Claude Valla informs us, the Incas were actually well versed in metallurgy. "The metallurgy industry [of the Incas], despite a relatively weak production, constituted a very important activity. The Incas, considered by the Indians as masters of metals, ' had no knowledge of the use of iron nor undoubtedly of lead, but they had acquired a great deal of experience in the working of gold, silver and copper, which was alloyed with tin to produce bronze. The imperial ateliers even produced [i .e ., mined] platinum, unknown ...

... substellar, sources of light are excluded from the myths. Cardona cites, for example, a version of the ancient Egyptian creation myth, as reconstructed by Dr. Brugsch, wherein: "Nothing existed except a boundless primeval mass of water which was shrouded in darkness," [2 ] and, for another example, a North American Indian creation myth wherein it is told that: "In the beginning there was no sun, no moon, no stars. All was dark and everywhere was only water."

... walk over the burning coals, and they really do it, and they haven't got anything on their feet, and I can assure you that it's not something I want to do because I have been that close to it and it's much too hot. So I tried to trace that, I felt at once that it had connections with Indian rituals at the same time, and it took me some years, and I did it by means of rock art. You can't show a fire walk, but you can show a fire bull, and in the same province, only 40 km away, but of course I discovered it too late, after it had been dropped ...
