... eruption of 1883 "produced an insignificant sprinkling of ash" by comparison with six great eruptions of the past "million" years that blanketed thickly the ridge and basin of the Java Trench. "Indeed how great must have been the earlier eruptions if the greatest known to man was too small to produce significant record. Powerful eruptions in the Japanese, Kurile, and Aleutian arcs have produced so much ash that these airborne volcanic products dominate the scenery of the Northwest Pacific in a belt almost 1000 km wide . (We note again that human were already present during these great ash storms and presumably coining legends.) Heezen added elsewhere the Mediterranean Sea bottom as a ...
162. Sacral vs. Secular Man [Books] [de Grazia books]
... on an elephant," "defending it," "justifying it," and of course "living off of it." A great many people derive a feeling of the supernatural and sacred form when functioning in the corporate ambiance. The Chief Executive of the great Schlumberger multinational enterprise said recently that a corporation nowadays must learn from the Japanese that "we have the responsibility that religion used to have." Are these behaviors and beliefs any less religious, say, than the behavior of believers in a volcano religion? The typical secular-ist worships a dozen such volcanoes; he is polytheistic; he believes in the supernatural and practices rites in regard to it. I do not ...

... exterminate the Roving Lights'. The Chinese also ritualised a Feast of the Dead in November by kindling bonfires along rivers and sailing paper boats containing candles .

... , and of person and nature, finds its destructive and creative climax in the quantavolutionary explosion. Recall only one recent memory, before we move into the primeval ages of mankind. What was the great lesson of the explosion of Hiroshima? That a new age had broken upon mankind. That in the giant column of fire carrying upwards a Japanese city was the fate of man and nature, inextricably bound. The single act of destruction called forth the essential forces of nature and the amazement of human beings, friends and foes alike, all over the world. Yet this was a small force compared with those being discussed. True, there was no force in earliest times that ...
165. AD Ages in Chaos: A Russian Point of View [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the European sense. The idea of history in China was quite different - it was moral history: what we can say about the past which is very useful for the world as we see it today. In India, there was no historical idea until the European conquest, so real Indian history begins in the 16th century. As one Japanese scientist has said, today Indian history is like a phone book, a lot of names collected from different poems without any historical events or any correct dating. Technology As I am short of time, I cannot speak about Isaac Newton who is very popular in the Russian history analysis: he demonstrated in his chronological studies that different chronologies ...
... or islands with burning volcanoes. It is, however, only a degree more extraordinary than that a volcano can throw up a burning island perhaps thousands of fathoms from the sea bed. In regard to such islands the two most recent examples, e.g ., the island off Saigon, French Cochin-China (5 ), and the Japanese earthquake of September 1st, I923 (I2), there are no records of volcanic activity other than the islands' cones, although both instances occurred in very active volcanic areas. It is difficult to comprehend how any person of scientific understanding could formulate such a theory to explain the phenomena, namely, that a conical mountain could be ...
167. Velikovsky's Legacy [Articles]
... the necessary explanation for this global mythical archetype. In Vedic India, it is Indra; among the Norse, Thor; among the ancient Celts, Cuchulainn; among the Latins, Mars; among the Aztecs, Tezcatlipoca; among the Ulates, Batraz; among the ancient Hebrews, Samson; among the Chinese, Kung kung; among the Japanese, Susanowo; among the ancient Egyptians, Shu or Horus. As I have documented, an analysis of the sacred traditions surrounding these various heroes/gods typically reveals the same set of motives: unrivaled ability as a warrior; indiscriminate killer of men; an ability to cause or cure pestilence; leader of an assault upon the ancient ...

A carved rock with an image of a man shooting an arrow, found at the site of a prehistoric Jomon period settlement, appears to have been carved with a knife and not the implements used at the time of its supposed origin, and the lines show no trace of weathering. Cliffs in the Beishan ...

... lake' or whirlpool called To-nihilin, waters that flow around', which had no outlet and no bottom'. In ancient Mexican traditions, encircling the Earth like a ring is an immense body of water, teo-atl, diving, marvelous water', which makes the world cem-a-nahuac, that which is entirely surrounded by water'. 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.
