181. The Celestial Whirlpool Lake [Books]
... coffin of Osiris"). It would appear that the late representations of Horus drifting in a boat, and others of Osiris in a boat, are survivals from a pre-Dynastic stellar myth. Tammuz of Sumeria drifted in a sunken boat. " Karna of India (son of the sun) was set a-drift, and there is a curious Japanese myth of Hiruko (leech child) drifting in a reed boat on the ocean (or sky sea); at the age of three he could not stand upright. It may be that some old stellar myth was concerned with the leech-like star child "drifting "in heaven, who had to be supplied with a backbone which was ...
182. The Area of Origin [Books]
... race. It is found, in fact, among all the peoples of the Indo-European branch, whilst it is completely absent among the Egyptians, the Chaldaens, the Assyrians, and even the Phoenicians, although these latter were not very scrupulous in borrowing the ornaments and symbols of their neighbours. As for the Tibetans, the Chinese and the Japanese, amongst whom it is neither less frequent nor less venerated, it is not difficult to prove that it must have come to them, with Buddhism, from India. In the extreme East, the origin of the gammadion can be traced without difficulty to the swastika of India (Ibid. p.79.) The Count is ...
183. The Crescent II [Books]
... boat of Dionysus. A ship of "self-made light" transports the Avestan great god Yima (Saturn). The Phoenician great father Chrysor "was the first man who fared in ships," (6 ) but it was also said that the twin god Ousoos "was the first who launched a boat." (7 ) The Japanese creator god Sukuna-Biko-Na rides "on the crest of the waves in a heavenly Kagami boat." (8 ) "A golden ship of golden tackle moved about in the sky," reads the Hindu Atharva Veda. (9 ) Natives of the Marquesas say that in the beginning there was only the sea on which the creator Tiki ...
184. A Fire not Blown [Books]
... the Philistines to wear feathered headgear. An Etruscan link is likely. If the eagle was the chief of the birds symbolising the lightning god in the sky, the hoopoe was the chief of the birds that detected the electrical god in the earth. Its name, epops, beholder, indicates that it could see the earthquake light. [Japanese and American scientists are now studying such phenomena.] In the Birds of Aristophanes, a character says Quiet! The hoopoe is going to sing! A few moments later, the hoopoe begins its song. Probably the hoopoe is on stage and it is the hoopoe's crest that attracts attention. The Greek horan, to see, has ...
185. Scientific Prehistory [Books]
... on the assumption of mantle convection currents. They did not even mention solar wind, Alfven waves and Van Allen ion and electron belts, basing their theory on magnetic measurements at the surface of the earth and extrapolating data to the deep mantle based on no more than NRM as a Chronometer. By studying the NRM and TRM in Japan, Japanese investigators have found that On/Qt is about unity for newly formed lava, i.e ., that NRM and TRM are identical in them. Q is defined by Q = I/xFo = J/xFo where Fo is the total intensity of the earth's magnetic field and x and x are the appropriate susceptibilities. The ...

187. The Cause of Gravitation [Books]
... flow, in which the thunderstorm cell is imbedded." It is well known that there is a "Great West Wind" encircling the earth at a high altitude. Dust from volcanoes has been known to go round the world, from west to east, the driving force being the incoming rays of radiant energy. Incendiary balloons-launched by the Japanese during World War II-brought these high altitude west winds to public attention. The balloons had control devices to keep them flying at altitudes of 30,000 to 35,000 feet, at which they would drift toward America in the west-to-east air currents; the speeds of these air currents have since been clocked by radar-equipped balloons at 450 miles ...

... of the world.  More than that, as Lord of the Centre, Shang-ti was also revered as Huang-ti,  who is perhaps better known as the Yellow Lord  or Yellow Emperor,  who has long been acknowledged to be an avatar of Saturn.  And in the Japanese Kojiki we learn of the Heavenly Jeweled Spear which joined heaven to Earth and which acted as the churning stick responsible for the surfacing of the mythical- one might as well say celestial- island of Onogoro.  The churning of the ocean. One thing I should indicate at this point is that the reason behind the churning ...

... that one-eyed Saturn was perceived to be the head of a vertical heaven-reaching serpent or dragon, the symbolism of the boat blessing is clear. Also, through this act, Saturn regained his life and glory, which matches this festival's name since Duan Wu means "maximum sun," and is now held around the summer solstice. Japan The Japanese tradition of painting the eyes of Daruma dolls to bring good luck or special protection is practiced by both children and adults. Daruma dolls are said to represent Bodhidharma, the founder of Chan Buddhism in China (known as Zen Buddhism in Japan), who is said to have "lost the use of his arms and legs after meditating ...
190. The Cosmic Double Helix [Journals] [Aeon]
... , the loops of the Indian caduceus are filled with images reminiscent of the cosmic centre where Creation and life began.  As a representation of Shiva's rod, the staff of a Brahman, too, is entwined by serpents. Symbologists recognise the axial importance of this emblem, placing it on a par with the cosmic pillar of Japanese creation as well as the Tantric image of the axis mundi as a backbone.  "According to esoteric Buddhism, the wand of the caduceus corresponds to the axis of the world and the serpents refer to the force called Kundalini, which, in Tantrist teaching, sleeps coiled up at the base of the backbone.. ...
