... is just the normal Sun since they said "Harakhte, he riseth in the west. Nurnerous Greek authors (e .g . Plato, Euripides) discussed a time when the Sun rose in the west. The Chinese say that the stars moving from east to west is a new arrangement. The Chinese Zodiac moves retrograde. 2 Some Indians of Mexico called the Sun that moved to the east Teotlhixco. 3 There are also Hebrew sources (e .g . Teaclate Sanhedrin of the Talmud) discussing the reversal of east and west. The Aztecs relate a story about a time of gloom when the sky was too dense to see the Sun. People placed bets on which ...

... 1982 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Slave Traders And The Slaves The continent of Africa is divided into what is called the Black continent, and the northern fringe, north of Sahara, occupied by the Berber or Arab states. The east coast of Africa runs parallel to the west coast of Arabia, and on the Indian Ocean coast, Zanzibar, the old station of Arab slave traders, completes a wide arc. The Arabs preyed on the African blacks and sold them into slavery wherever there was a demand. Slavery was also imposed on war prisoners of other races, and Columbus made slaves out of his Carib prisoners, but it was, especially in ...

... Navajo medicine men. . . These star paintings are precisely painted on the roofs of high overhangs or on the roofs of cave-like shelters. . . Many of the star paintings occur on high overhangs, some of which are as much as 150 feet above the canyon floor. Most of the sites are now inaccessible.(30) Pueblo Indians still observe the motions of celestial bodies in order to time and regulate their ceremonial life. Of particular importance to most groups is the yearly cycle of the sun from winter to summer solstice and back. Stellar groupings such as the Pleiades and the Belt of Orion and various bright stars are considered important as well. For example, because ...

... , they were probably too few to make real use of the remains in the Inter-Andean Basin, and to attempt to re-establish the culture of their lost homeland in the barren Tableland. Such survivors or refugees soon lapsed into primitivism, and their descendants, perhaps intermingling with any sparse older settlers there, became the small tribes of tough, stolid Indians who still live in the Andean highlands, clinging to the wastes with a strange tenacity. These refugees evidently avoided-as the Indians still avoid-the lonely ruins, where the guanaco rested' in undisturbed peace. The Incas who appeared in the Andean highlands from no one knows exactly where, but most probably from a lost land in ships, as ...

... suggestion is supported by several words of similar form. In the Indo-European languages it is known that the consonant n frequently interchanges with r and l, and thus with the Sanskrit vana we might compare the Avestan vara, the name of Yima's celestial enclosure, described as being of fiery luminescence. (50) According to Pokorny, the Old Indian vara signifies a "hairy tail," a meaning full of significance if Yima's celestial dwelling was actually formed from the tail of a comet. (51) In Hindu mythology the name vala was applied to the celestial enclosure, said to be derived from a word meaning "enclose." (52) The same root, however ...

... people flying. How and where do such nonsensical concepts arise? In particular, those which include Men riding inside a mechanical flying machine? How can primitive peoples conceptualize "mechanical" prior to the advent of the mechanical age: is this not a daunting question, worthy of consideration while reflecting on these matters? . . . several Ancient Indian Manuscripts mention in detail mechanical flying machines, and lest we forget, there was also the very well known account in the Bible of Ezekial, who saw the "wheel". Now, this wheel was a flying machine which carried Ezekial off yonder somewhere, as I recall, and it was also noted that "people" of ...

... island, if the isthmus between the Mediterranean and the Red Sea should sink down. And these islands may have rocks and mountains in them, if the Lance had so before. Lastly; there are islands that have been first to rise from the bottom of the sea'; history mentions each in both the Achipelago's. Ęgean, and Indian; and this seems to argue that there are great fragments or, tracts of Earth that lie loose at the bottom of the Sea, or that are not incorporated with the ground; which agrees very well with our explication, of thq sea-channel.

But it is important to distinguish the soul-bird from such "giant birds" as the fabulous Hindu Garuda, Iranian Rok, Scandinavian Hraesvelg or American Indian Thunderbird- symbols of the sun god- or such birds as the hawk, falcon, crow, raven or woodpecker, which were con~mon mythical forms of the warrior hero. As will eventually become clear, each set of bird symbols has its own compelling logic.) The Egyptian Ba, or "soul," was ...
