121. Paired Sets in the Hebrew Alphabet [Journals] [Aeon]
... connected with the Hebrew root zn, and indicated balance, ' in Hebrew moznayim." (40) Moran sees a possible relationship between zayin and Hebrew ziz , "moving things," relating these to Assyrian zizanu, "reptiles"- (here one can hardly fail to remark on the similarity of sound between this word and the Japanese reptile-associated thunder god Susanoo)- which he feels may be cognate with the Greek zo-o, "to live," "to breathe," "to be full of vigor." (41) Additionally: ". .. zayin would seem to correspond to the Sumerian zi, zi-n life, ' soul, ', living ...

... glowing or fiery nimbus , which dwells in the sea Vourakasa as it circles the Earth . ) In the Hebrew traditions, "The Ocean surrounds the world as a vault surrounds a large pillar. And the world is placed in its circular form on the fins of Leviathan". . In Japanese mythology, heaven is crossed by the heavenly river, Ama-no-kawa, typified by a stream having pebbles in its bed, similar to streams in Japan . It is called the Rocky Bed of the Tranquil River of Heaven'  and the True-Pool-Well of Heaven' . The British Arianrhod of the Silver ...
123. The Saturn Thesis (Part 4) [Journals] [Aeon]
... its central position- and "sweeping" or "clearing" the sky as it churned visually around the polar center, with the rotation of the Earth. Inseparably connected to the idea of radiating "feathers" is the ancient image of a goddess displaying a "fan." In Egyptian, Greek, Iranian, Indian, Chinese, Japanese and other eastern cultures, the fan possesses an enigmatic significance in relation to power (life-strength, authority, charisma, protection), and this significance has never been explained. On its own, the inconspicuous symbol does not suggest any of its symbolic connotations, except in the feeble sense that we associate the fan and shade today with ...
124. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... orbits of Jupiter and Venus in producing terrestrial magnetic storms. This paper appears extremely well documented and carefully researched and we recommend it highly. Banded Rock Production source: NATURE 11.8 .83, pp. 527-8 Have you ever wondered what series of events led to the production of striated and banded rocks, pebbles, etc? Two Japanese scientists, A. Kouchi and I. Sunagawa, have performed the first ever experiment in mixing two magmas of different composition to produce a homogenous mixed magma or a banded magma. Rods of a dacite and a basalt rock, heated to 1250 C and melted, were mixed by the technique of forced convection and in a matter of ...
125. Pot Pourri [Journals] [SIS Review]
... that the Pacific was colonised from the Americas rather than out of Asia; Polynesian genetic drift across the Pacific can be traced directly back to the Moluccas and more distantly (20-30,000 years BC) to Taiwan or southern China. A minority Polynesian group (4 % of the total) developed separately in New Guinea. The majority of Japanese are descendants of the Korean Yayois, who seem to have displaced the earlier Jomons after c. 500 BC; others are related to the Ainu and Ryukyuan descendants of the Jomons, though their two branches seem to have separated 12,000 years ago (i .e ., when they reached Japan). The First Americans It ...
126. Graham Hanock: Adjudication [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... had omitted his detailed reasons arguments for proposing that the under-water structure at Yonaguni, Japan, was artificial man-made and not a natural feature. Although the programme-makers had not included Professor Schoch's supportive views on the dating of the Sphinx, they had included his contrary view that Yonaguni was a natural feature. Viewers had not been told that there were Japanese experts such as Professor Masaaki Kimura who were convinced that the structure had been extensively worked by human beings. The BBC said that it had been appropriate to hear from Professor Schoch on this subject. His geological expertise, while it did not make him infallible, left him better placed than Mr Hancock to give an expert assessment. Mr ...
127. Cosmology And PsychologyY [Journals] [Kronos]
... and the inculcation of unshakable fear.(11) The myths and legends of all peoples conclusively support this contention. An eighteenth century forerunner of Velikovsky, Nicolas-Antoine Boulanger (1722-1759), likewise "analyzed the cosmogonies and mythologies of several far-spread peoples of the Earth, such as Germans, Greeks, Jews, Arabs, Hindus, Chinese, Japanese, Peruvians, Mexicans, and Caribs, concluding that rites, ceremonials, and myths reflect the fact that the human race was subjected to a series of cosmic convulsions .. ." (12) Scholars try to explain the widespread common themes of mythology by a slow diffusion of ideas from one culture to another. Velikovsky contends that ...

... to Perseus) = 23 Attalid Dynasty (Philetaerus to Eumenes III) = 22 Kings of Parthia (Vologeses II to Vologeses VI) = 18 Hasmonean Dynasty (Jonathan to Antigonus) = 12.8 It might also be worth pointing out that the English royal line has an average reign length of less than 20 years and that of the Japanese emperors (spanning over 1000 years) is 18. I should also stress that the figures are based on mean averages which should only be used as a rough guide given the simplicity of the method. If we then take our figure of 23 years (which is higher than all but one of the above dynasties) and apply it ...

... exchanges of energy between the outer planets' without any suggestion of instability in their orbits. Wouldn't it be interesting to see in these retrocalculations how the orbit of a large comet (like Schwassmann-Wachmann-1) was circularised from its original highly elliptical form? Variations in G?source: New Scientist 17.2 .90, p. 30 Two Japanese researchers have recently claimed that gyroscopes possess a peculiar property hitherto unsuspected. The remarkable claim is that a gyroscope loses weight when spun in one direction, but not in the other! Naturally, most scientists are highly skeptical because the claim cannot be explained by Newtonian gravitational theory, even with modern corrections'. Bearing in mind the fate ...

... it was over, the agent which had caused the flood returned in the form of Sinag-liou.(17) Other dragons in connection with the flood of Yao are mentioned in The Eclipse of the Moon, a poem of Lu T'ung.(18) [* * Compare this to the Hydra of Greek mythology and the multi-headed serpent of Japanese myth.- The Ed.] The Dragon's Pearl In his article, Sutherland states that the "globe" which the Chinese dragon is invariably shown chasing is called a "pearl." The Chinese still refer to this fiery sphere as a "shou" or "chuh" and this word does mean "pearl." The ...
