221. The Holy Land [Books]
... to Sumerian hymns, is "the place where the sun rises." (21) And many thousands of miles from Mesopotamia the natives of Hawaii recall an ancestral land, Tahiti Na, "our peaceful motherland: the tranquil land of Dawn." (22) So also did the Hindus, Persians, Chinese, and many American Indian tribes conceive the lost paradise as the place of the "sunrise." (23) The World Wheel That Saturn, the primeval sun, first shed its light from the circle of the created "earth" will explain why the celestial land often appears as a great wheel revolving around stationary sun. It may be called alternately the ...
222. Thoth Vol I, No. 5: March 14, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... long past, so long past that even the grandmothers of our grandmothers were not yet born," they say, "the world was quite other than what it is today: the trees were forever in fruit; the animals lived in perfect harmony, and the little agouti played fearlessly with the beard of the jaguar " The South American Indians of Gran Chaco and Amazonia recall this as the Happy Place, where work was unknown because the fields produced abundance of their own accord. The Hopi Indians proclaim that in the earliest time they were a marvelously contented race, at peace with their brothers. They knew nothing of sickness or conflict, and all things were provided by Mother ...
223. Thoth Vol IV, No. 2: Jan 31, 2000 [Journals] [Thoth]
... snow, and ice. A telling clue comes from William of Conches who tells us that Saturn is called cold not because he is inherently cold himself but because he causes cold. ' AMY: Cardona discusses this connection between Saturn and cold with respect to the Greek and Persian mytho-historical record, and then adds this story told by the Modoc Indians of southern Oregon and northern California: CARDONA: . . . the Chief of the Sky Spirits drilled a hole in the sky with a rotating stone through which he pushed snow and ice to form a mound which almost touched the sky. . . . the drilling of the sky with a rotating stone is too similar to the churning ...
224. The Coming Cosmic Debate in the Sciences and Humanities: Revolutionary Vs. Evolutionary Primevology [Articles]
... ? Is history but an obsessed recapitulation of disastrous experiences? Is it but a shell-shocked capering? Call the role of ancient civilizations: Egypt, Mesopotamia, Palestine, Crete, Cyprus, the Aegean, Greece, the Etruscans, the Romans, the Megalithic pre-historic humans of Europe, the Olmecs and Nayans, the Peruvians, the North American Indians, China, India, Iran, and so forth. Wherever one ventures equipped with the revolutionary theory, old historical evidence is reshaped and new theories emerge. Matters large and matters small become involved. How did the ball games of many cultures come to be invented and why were they religious? Why do modern Peruvian Indians put bowls ...
... , north pole forward, with the rest of our solar system on its translatory flight through space; and these fragments came down especially to the east of the apex because of the gravitational pull of this terrestrial hump. The majority of the core material descended between about the eastern coast of South America (especially eastern Brazil) and the western Indian Ocean. (Diagram 22) Descending at terrific speed, the huge metallo-mineral core blocks of the satellite plunged clean through the terrestrial surface. Some may have become embedded at various depths, but most of them reached the magma layer and sank to its bottom, thus adding to the metallo-mineral core of the Earth. The craters' which ...
226. The Saturn Problem [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the first man and, like Kronos, the first law-giver. He ruled over a paradise before the world was plunged into an age of ice; but while he was king there was neither cold wind not hot wind, neither disease nor death' . It might be thought that these similarities in belief among the Greeks, Indians and Persians are due to a shared Indo-European heritage, going back several thousand years to a time when the Indo-European peoples were one group, probably living in Central Asia. Yet similar beliefs about the importance of Saturn were also held by non-Indo-European peoples, notably the Semites of the Near East. The Phoenicians thought that the great god El ...

... been explained as due to resonant vibrations in response to changes in ocean pressure on the Earth's crust. Tottering Tectonics Science Frontiers 125, Sep-Oct.99, p.3 , 127, Jan-Feb.00, p.3 There are still some geologists prepared to run contrary to the currently accepted tectonic plate paradigm. S. Keshov of Bombay's Indian Institute of Technology asserts that it is a myth that has paralysed our thinking' and gives reasons for his views. In Australia P. James also details many examples against the theory, including the failure of measurements to show that the Atlantic is widening and radiometric measurements of islands in the Atlantic which indicate that they are far older than ...
228. An Integrated Model for an Earthwide Event at 2300 BC. Part II: The Geological Evidence [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 2000 BC, both islands have been determined to have undergone uplift, with a total 2 metre cumulative to present. The authors comment that sedimentation might have been a contributor to the measurement, but that they favour tectonic processes as the causal factor [9 ]. Isostatic uplift of the Vestfold Hills along the coast of Antarctica south of the Indian Ocean also occurred about 4000 years ago. The date was determined from radiocarbon dating of shells in the previously submerged dunes . So far, I have discussed possible crustal movements everywhere other than the area where the extensive site destruction and abandonment occurred at about 2300 BC: this area extends from Greece and Anatolia (Turkey) ...
... only slow progress (2 , 3, 6; a trait found in quite a number of myths). Then the first beginnings of a tail are observable (4 ). The powers of the dying satellite are waning, which causes earthquakes to start (5 ). The serpent-killer motif (7 ) is rare with the North American Indians. The disintegration now makes rapid progress (8 ). The first ice and ore blocks shoot into the terrestrial atmosphere (9 ), and descend upon the Earth's surface (10). The dying satellite's pull has now so much weakened that the waters of the girdle-tide begin to flow off (11) and the observers experience a ...
230. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... asked for. And in light of it, it behooves Rees to explain why the Midrashim support an 18th Dynasty Exodus rather than a 6th Dynasty one. Also, his ideas of equating characters in Greek mythology is confusing. Is Rees trying to mythologize Israelite history or de-mythologize Greek mythology? Is he suggesting that the Patriarchs were Greek? Or Indian? Does his equation of Abraham and Sarah with Brahma and Sri imply that the biblical Patriarchs are merely echoes of Indian deities or that the Indian deities are actually based on real (Semitic) people? Is he serious about using Midrashim as historical sources? With the Exodus in 1320(!), Solomon would be around 840. ...
