391. Venus and Mars [Books] [de Grazia books]
... year" on those occasions; the inference from the holiday is that the proto-planet, still behaving as a comet and undergoing continuous electrical transaction, was due to arrive in the vicinity of Earth but prayerfully would design not to destroy the world. It is significant, as one of numerous details in the Venus mosaic, that the American Pawnee Indians until a century ago celebrated a Venus festival on each occasion of the reappearance of Venus, sacrificing a virgin to the star. But many another celebration of Venus could be cited. Granted that history and legend impart an aura of youth to the planet Venus, one can search for and find confirmation of youthfulness in the present state and ...

... of the Dresden Codex. 520 days equals 3 ecliptic cycles. (Ex.: 9 Ix = 14040+ 520 = 14560 = 4 Eb.) I hope this answers Prof. Thiers' question. The 260-day count refers to 9 x 28.8888. See Prof. Spinden's Maya Art and Civilization (The Falcon's Wing Press, Indian Hills, Colorado, 1957), p. 309. MICHAEL READE comments: According to J. Eric S.

... solar energy technology; man's internal "navigation system"; the neutron bomb; and miniaturisation. Recommended to all with time and inclination to keep abreast of progress. Of particular interest is the issue for December 1977, devoted to The Astronomy of the Ancients. The writers of this issue examine the astronomical "Medicine Wheels" of the Plains Indians; apparent supernova records in early American petroglyphs; the earliest astronomical instruments (shadow-clocks, astrolabes, sundials from both hemispheres); the enigmatic legends, ancient and modern, concerning Sirius; the astronomical features of Stonehenge; the (suggested) terrestrial origins of the celestial Gorgon myth, and the possible celestial origins of the supposedly terrestrial Atlantis ...

... into caves during earthquakes (for the sky brings worse terrors); the kingdoms are overthrown, then the survivors attack each other; the survivors are stunned, maddened, functionally blinded. The preventatives are difficult, if not impossible: that all should worship faithfully and properly, and obey divine commandments. Now here is a legend of the Indians of the Badlands of South Dakota. It tells of how the Badlands came into being, laying it onto violations of the will of the Great Spirit who had granted plenty but had decreed peace, and there was no peace. Warriors prepared for battle: At last all were assembled and the day had come for the advance. And ...

... circle around the Earth, the basic postulate of Newton's Principia; and did not Halley read in Pliny about comets returning on their orbits? Then why does modern science disregard the persistent reports of events witnessed and recorded in many languages in the writings of the ancients and also transmitted from generation to generation by communities unable to write, by American Indians, by the people of Lapland, the Voguls of Siberia, the aborigines of tropical Africa, the Tahitians in the South Pacific? Why is theomachy the central theme of all cosmogonical myths? Should not a thinking man pause and wonder why the ancients in both hemispheres worshipped planetary gods; why temples were erected to them, and some ...

... There is evidence that Old European Linear markings somehow either influenced, or provided a basis for, Indus Valley signs, (the precise mechanism remaining uncertain at this moment in time). Despite the time gap over a thousand years from the demise of Indus valley script until the time that the Asokan inscriptions of classical India, Richard Salomon (Indian Epigraphy, OUP, 1998) does not dismiss the strong possibility that there was a systematic connection between Indus valley script and the historical scripts of India. This being so, we can now begin to follow a link to Southeast Asia. (Incidentally, the thousand year time gap' mentioned by Salomon may provide grounds for investigation into ...

... ) the origin of the tradition was lost in antiquity." Ptolemy in the Tetrabiblos (1-19) devotes a chapter (Peri Hypsomata) to an explanation which Fagan here considers naive for, although it assigns reasons for the exaltation sign, it does not attempt to explain the reason for the actual degree. The great avatars and heroes of Indian mythology were traditionally born when the luminaries and planets were in their exaltations (vide Sri Krishna-Kalaprashika, Sloka 19-22, and Rama (Ramayana)) which fact gave rise to the opinion that the exaltations represented the horoscope of a very exalted personage. This theory had to be abandoned, since, under the present cosmic system, Mercury can ...
