91. The Races Of Homo Sapiens [Journals] [Kronos]
... had a relatively short history since, as Coon reports, "all the known Ainu skulls are recent"(19)- i.e ., from the Holocene epoch. Even so, the Ainu appear to be an offshoot of their Mongoloid neighbors. " .. . the teeth of modern Ainu are similar to those of prehistorical Japanese, whereas the teeth of modern Japanese are similar to those of ancient Chinese. Despite their Caucasoid appearance, the Ainu are definitely descended from Mongoloid stock."(20) Sharing with the Blacks of Africa what seems to be a nonexistent past, did the European Caucasoids also sprout from Mongoloid roots'? "European fossils point to ...
92. As the Cross of the Cardinal Points [Books]
... the other female. Connected with this concept may have been the custom referred to in Khafra's tale in one of the old Egyptian collections. The wife of Uba-aner is unfaithful: And they brought forth the wife of Uba-aner to the side of the harem, and burnt her with fire, and cast her ashes in the river.5 The Japanese regard the East and South as male and the West and North as fernale.6 In Japanese "medical folklore", A hiccough is driven away by applying under the knee a sheet of ha-hi, folded to the left in the case of a man and to the right in the case of a woman.7 In the next ...
93. Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Nottingham. His idea was to compare the ease with which non-Turkish speakers could learn a genuine Turkish nursery rhyme as opposed to an equivalent false one: if formative causation is correct, the genuine rhyme should be learned much quicker, because millions of Turks have already learned it in the past. This test was put into operation, but with Japanese rather than Turkish rhymes. A genuine poem was used, together with two specially composed ones, all with the same rhyme and metre. It was found that 62% of those tested found the genuine nursery rhyme easiest to learn, a result well above chance. However, Sheldrake acknowledged that this poem might have become established as a ...
94. "Proofs" of the Stability of the Solar System [Journals] [Pensee]
... of the Solar System," Chapter 4, volume 111, The Solar System, ed. by G. P. Kuiper, University of Chicago Press, 1961. Hagihara's entire five-volume treatise on celestial mechanics has not yet appeared; volumes I and II have recently been published by MIT Press; volumes III and IV are available from a Japanese publisher. From the one volume that I have seen, and the announced outline, it is evident that this will be the most exhaustively thorough and definitive treatment of celestial mechanics for decades to come. Evidently (in a 1944 Japanese journal which I have been unable to obtain as yet) Hagihara presented a very elegant and possibly definitive ...
95. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... to realise how extraordinarily little this will have told us about his behaviour. Perhaps we would do better to study the behaviour of those living species most closely related to man. Sagan does not neglect this alternative, and takes us on a quick tour of some of the more widely popularised features of monkey and chimpanzee life. We learn of Japanese macaques learning to unwrap caramels and sifting wheat from sand, and transmitting these new habits to other members of the troop; of chimpanzees fishing for termites in East Africa, and learning sign language in Nevada. Every example is treated with bated breath. Together, they suggest to Sagan that within a few generations we may see a community ...
96. Catastrophic Theory of Mountain Uplifts (A Crustal Deformation Theory) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... is a diagram of the alignment of the mountain arcs of Eastern Asia. Many of them are partially submerged mountain chains. They align, as J. Tuzo Wilson pointed out, like sausages on a string, like several strings of sausages hung or strung out across the Eastern Pacific. One string is the Ryukyu Arc. Another is the Japanese Arc, followed by the Kurile Arc, the Kamchatka Arc, the Aleutian Arc, etc. These arcs in series are merely deformed and reformed Earth crust, like sausages of reformed meat. It took one or more close Mars flybys, penetrating the Earth's elastic-plastic threshold at 19,000 miles, to string out these arcs. It ...

98. SERVANT OF THE SUN GOD [Journals] [Aeon]
... reveal similar qualities as the essence of the god and fulfil essentially identical roles in the myths. Thus, a wide range of images can be brought into the analysis as tests of the theory. Moreover, the variations on the theme cannot cloud the distinctive parallelisms, and these are the key to the full range of symbols. In the Japanese Kojiki the Heavenly Jewelled Spear, joining heaven and earth, appears as the churning stick by whose action the island-dwelling Onogoro was brought forth.(19) One might imagine this to be a different myth from that of the spear as pathway, but the difference will disappear when one sees that mythically the cosmic mountain was simultaneously a churning ...
99. The Mythical History of the Comet Venus (Part I) [Journals] [Aeon]
... ) Of the Hindu god Shiva it was said "one blazing eye shone forth" on his brow.(13) Comparable are the single eye of the Norse Odin, the all-seeing celestial eye of the Iranian Ahura Mazda, the one eye of the Mexican Tlaloc, and the god with "one-eye of heaven," appearing in a Japanese mythical fragment.(14) The more ground one covers with respect to the one-eyed god, the more the common epithets relating to the "eye" of the creator-king begin to stand out, suggesting something more than mere poetry. The Sumerian Enlil is the "bright-eyed." Ninurta looks at his mother Ninmah with the "eye ...
100. Plato's Atlantis and Prehistoric Europe [Articles]
... . We don't know that the Minoan kings had an empire at all, in fact, leave alone the so-called priest-kings of modern archaeological mythology. The British Empire at least did have a supreme monarch ruling over other kings. To take a spurious parallel, which I believe the Thera hypothesis is, you might argue that the modern 20th century Japanese empire compares better to Atlantis, because that was destroyed by a cataclysm in a couple of days, and in fact the Japanese are very fond of bathing. Anyway, having been very critical of Luce, Marinatos and others, I feel I am now compelled to put my own head on the speculative block and, very briefly, ...
