82. Subterranean "circles" [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 76: Jul-Aug 1991 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Subterranean "circles" As if we didn't have enough problems with crop circles on the earth's surface, it now seems that whatever agency (or "entity") that is responsible for them also plies its craft underground! "Sets of concentric rings, similar to those found last summer in British wheat fields, have been discovered in a Japanese subway tunnel..... "Many sets of concentric rings were found drawn in dust that accumulated on the ground and walls inside the tube. The metro versions of the mystery circles are much smaller-- up to 8 centimeters in diameter-- than the British ones, the largest of which measures scores of meters." Y. Otsuki, a professor of physics at Waseda University, discovered the rings and believes that plasma generated in the air creates them. Subway tunnels, he says, create conditions similar to those in the plasma generators he uses in ...
83. Dean Acheson's Promise [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... the rebellion having been quashed, he fled to Iran, but not before he had 400 Jews assassinated in a pogrom in Bagdad. On July 2, 1941, the Investigating Committee appointed by a new Iraqi Government declared: ? The causes of the outbursts are Nazi propaganda emanating from (1) the German Legation, (2) the Mufti of Jerusalem and his henchmen who followed him to Iraq.? Gen. Wavell ? s price on his head ($ 100,000) is still valid. After hiding in the Japanese Legation in Iran, he fled to Rome. He ought to be brought to trial there: in his radio speeches from Italy he incited the Arabs to murder and cursed the American people. Then to Germany, where he was the chief instigator of the annihilation of the Jews, a counselor of Himmler and Eichman, and a visitor of gas chambers. And to Yugoslavia where he, a British-Palestinian subject, formed the Bosnian Legion to fight the Allies. And to Hungary, from where, following his letter to the Hungarian ...
84. Mystery of the Cosmic Thunderbolt(6) [Thunderbolts Website]
... the "arrow of a mighty hero". A common Slavic name for the weapon of the celestial warrior Perun is strela, "arrow". The Finnish warrior-hero Jumala, is said to have "wielded thunderbolts in the shape of jagged lightning-spears". For the Hindus, it was the great warrior Indra who defeated the dragon Vritra with his thunderbolt. Among the Tibetans and Mongols lightning was the arrow of a dragon-riding god, and thunder was the voice of the dragon. In the same way, the warrior Raiden, in Japanese myth, wielded "fire-arrows"--identified as the thunderbolt --in his battle against the chaos power, Raiju, the "Thunder-beast". Numerous equations of hero's weapon and thunderbolts occur in the Americas as well. Iroquois account tells of a warrior Hé-no, whose name means "thunder". "A monstrous serpent dwelt under the village, and made his annual repast upon the bodies of the dead which were buried by its side. He went forth once a year, and poisoned the waters of the Niagara, and also of ...
85. Phallic Worship in the Modern World [Aeon Journal $]
... one of the world's great religions. And its adherents are no less devout than those of other modern faiths including Christianity. To Hindus, the lingam is a symbol of Shiva himself, of potency and the life force. In fact, to Hindus, the very sexual act symbolizes the unity of the cosmos. Some years back, one of those familiar cement, bullet-shaped, four-foot high traffic barriers we all see blocking our way through certain streets was unceremoniously dumped in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, in a glen behind the world-famous Japanese Tea Garden. And then, as if through a sudden urge, in October of 1993, someone decided to turn this cement barrier into a religious shrine that has drawn pilgrims from as far away as India itself. Why? Because, like the icy stalagmite at the Amarnath cave-shrine, the barrier was seen to resemble a phallus. Esoteric symbols soon began showing up on the blessed thing, followed by flower offerings and, eventually, by a rock garden constructed out of the remains of a Spanish abbey that had been donated ...
86. Transcontinental Contact [Aeon Journal $]
... Salvador by no less an authority than Miguel Gonzales in 1914. Not that it is now believed that ancient Egyptians had, in any way, colonized the New World, but it is obvious that contact and a certain amount of trade passed between the two cultures. Meanwhile, analysis of characters found in Central American carvings have shown them to be identical to those of Chinese writing employed during the Shang Dynasty more than 3,000 years ago. Comparison of South American pottery with that of Asia has also led to the conclusion that Japanese sailors must have made contact with the indigenes of Ecuador some 5,000 years ago. French archaeologists working in Brazil unearthed a skull, claimed to be at least 9,000 years old, which, on examination through a three-dimensional catscan at a hospital in Rio de Janeiro, turned out to be Negroid. Granted that the wheels of orthodoxy tend to churn rather slowly, it seems as if it will not be too long before we can expect an official revision of ancient American History. ...
87. The Demise of the Mammoth: Conflicting Theories [Aeon Journal $]
... its two magnificent tusks, were bits and pieces of flesh and hair. "I ’ m a bit disappointed," Bernard Buigues, veteran Arctic explorer, was forced to admit. "I was expecting a lot and got a little." Buigues now plans to lead an expedition to the New Siberian Islands which, according to the Russian mammalogist Alexei Tikhonov, may be the best place in the world to find frozen mammoth soft tissue such as the chunks which had already been retrieved in the mid-1990s by a joint Russian and Japanese expedition. It is not that Buigues and his colleague Ross MacPhee are aiming to clone a mammoth from any DNA they hope to recover. But MacPhee, curator of mammals at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, is hoping to be able to test his theory concerning the demise of the mammoth. The extinction of this beast has long puzzled scientists. Originally, it was believed that the mammoth had succumbed to the drastic climatic change at the end of the Pleistocene. But by the late 1960s, this theory ...
88. Killer Whale Dialects [Science Frontiers Website]
... All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Killer Whale Dialects J. Ford is the curator of marine mammals at Vancouver's Public Aquarium. For years, he has been listening to killer whales converse as they hunt along the coast of the Pacific Northwest. About 350 whales in the area are divided into two communities, each of which is subdivided into several pods. Each pod has its own dialect of sounds used in communication. Some of the dia-lects are regional, like Bostonian or Texan; others are more divergent, like English and Japanese. This discovery promotes killer whales to the level of some primates and harbor seals. Usually, Ford says, the sounds made by animals are determined genetically. (Dayton, Leigh; "Killer Whales Communicate in Distinct 'Dialects,'" New Scientist, p. 35, March 10, 1990.) Reference.

89. A FIRE NOT BLOWN: CHAPTER 04: ZEUS [Quantavolution Website]
... was born in Crete, as opposed to being reared in Crete, but who also died there, at Iuktas. That the chief of the gods, who, according to Homer, live for ever, should have died, calls for comment. The association with rocks and caves indicates that the Cretans were aware of the piezoelectric effects in split rocks and caves, and lightning strikes on rocky peaks, at times of violent storms and earthquakes, together with earthquake light. The latter, which is the subject of recent research by Japanese and American scientists, would be detected by a hoopoe, or by a quail, whose Greek name, ortux, means 'the one who finds the light'. Ortygia was a name of the island of Delos, the birthplace of a god closely associated with light, Apollo. Its name implies 'where the light happens' or 'quail land'. Piezoelectric effects would gradually fade away through electrical leakage as things settled down after periods of major disturbance such as affected the ancient world generally. The Zeus who lived in the sky ...
90. A FIRE NOT BLOWN: CHAPTER 22: SACRED BIRDS [Quantavolution Website]
... to suggest that they would strike their enemies as if with lightning. Minos is described as cristata casside pennis, with a crest of feathers on his helmet. It was also a practice of 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 a perfect tense opopa, sometimes used instead of the usual form heoraka. The hoopoe was the bird that saw, and there was a frieze of hoopoes at Knosos, the place of gnosis, ...
