111. The Legends of the Jews: Volume I - Adam [Books]
... to spew forth Jonah, and the heavens to open before Ezekiel.[9 ] In His modesty, God took counsel with the angels, before the creation of the world, regarding His intention of making man. He said: "For the sake of Israel, I will create the world. As I shall make a division between light and darkness, so I will in time to come do for Israel in Egypt- thick darkness shall be over the land, and the children of Israel shall have light in their dwellings; as I shall make a separation between the waters under the firmament and the waters above the firmament, so I will do for Israel- I will divide ...
... the water and move rapidly along its surface. By the repeated stretching of their toes, the skin which united them at the base acquired a habit of extension, until, in the course of time, the broad membranes which now connect their extremities were .formed. In like manner, the antelope and the gazelle were not endowed with light agile forms, in order that they might escape by flight from carnivorous animals ; but, having been exposed to the danger of being devoured by lions, tigers, and other beasts of prey, they were compelled to exert themselves in running with great celerity ; a habit which, in the course of many generations, gave rise to ...
113. Prologue: The Good Earth (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... closest to the Sun, is so hot on its illuminated side that some metals would be molten; its face is licked by solar plasma and it has only a rudiment or a vestige of an atmosphere. Venus is enshrouded in massive clouds of dust and gases and is well over 8oo F. at its ground surface, equally on its lighted and shadowed sides. Its period of daylight is as long as fifty-eight terrestrial days; its night is of equal length. The ancients called it Lucifer, and it is a hell, and no life could be sustained on its surface under the dark canopy of dust. These two planets, Mercury and Venus, are situated on orbits ...
114. KA [Books]
... the Fury Allecto in disguise speaks to Turnus, the prince of the Rutuli, to whom King Latinus has promised his daughter. She urges him to attack the Tyrrhenians who are threatening to supplant him. An attack would have divine approval-"caelestum vis magna iubet", the great force of the celestial ones orders it. Phaos, light, is used as periphrasis by Homer. (Odyssey XVI:23), and by Sophocles (Electra 1224). Ophthalmos, eye, is also used. If we turn to Egyptian, we find a word which seems to correspond, and to explain some important words in Latin and Greek. Ka' is a man's double ...
115. The Cosmology Of Tawantinsuyu [Journals] [Kronos]
... With this information in hand, there was little reason to doubt the reality of an all-important solar cult in Tawantinsuyu. But a little over a century ago a series of momentous literary discoveries changed this situation very materially. In 1873 Clemens R. Markham, in the course of a survey of some of the collections of Madrid's Biblioteca Nacional, lighted upon a previously unknown sixteenth-century manuscript entitled Relacion de antiguedades deste reyno de Piru. Its author, an Aymara Indian named Pachacuti Sallkamaywa, was from a noble family, newly converted to Catholicism. The same library also yielded the Fabulos y ritos de los Incas by Cristobal de Molina that had been consigned to obscurity since its composition three centuries ...
116. KA [Books]
... Ignis is the element fire, igniculus is a spark. Incendo = kindle, ardere = to be on fire; excandescere = to blaze out brightly. Cremia = firewood, titio = a brand, torris = a burning brand, fax = a torch. Scintilla, Latin for spark', and Semitic sikina, knife, may shed light on a Cretan dance, the Sikinnis. The flamen was a stoker who blew the fire into flame. Flare is to blow. Calere is to be hot. I suggest that this is an example of ka, the double, the radiation or halo round the head of a god, or statue. Greek kaio = burn. ...
117. Devi And Venus [Journals] [Kronos]
... , Chandra (the Moon), Varuna (the Sky), and still other devas, including the petitioners. "Thrown out from heaven by that evil-natured Mahisha, the hosts of devas wander on the earth like mortals."(4 ) The principal gods were outraged and took action at once: "Then issued forth a great light from the face of Vishnu who was full of intense anger, and from that of Brahma and Shiva too. From the bodies of Indra and other devas also sprang forth a very great light. And (all) this light united together. The devas saw there a concentration of light like a mountain blazing excessively, pervading all the ...
118. The Evolution of the Cosmogonic Egg [Journals] [Aeon]
... Back in 1978, I had described this celestial egg as having been the "oblate spheroid" of the Saturnian orb itself which mankind saw floating on the waters of chaos, (42) an idea that was picked up by Frederick Hall and utilized in his tentative Saturnian model. (43) I had also offered the opinion that the light of Saturn's flare-up had been seen as having been emitted by the breaking, or hatching, of this egg. (44) While the first postulate just might be correct- but, even then, only partly so- the second is no longer tenable. In fact, contrary to the notion that the light was shed by the ...
119. Worship Of The Morning Star, Part 1 Venus Ch.9 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... the fifteenth century before the present era, we understand also the different historical connections between Venus and these catastrophes. In numerous biblical and rabbinical passages it is said that when the Israelites went from Mount Sinai into the desert, they were covered by clouds. These clouds were illuminated by the pillar of fire, so that they gave a pale light.(35) With this should be connected a statement of Isaiah: "The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light; they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, the light of Noga was upon them."(36) Noga is Venus; it is, in fact, the usual ...
120. Saturn And Genesis [Journals] [Kronos]
... Pensee (pp. 49-50), the Rev. D. De Jong drew attention to Genesis 1:16 as possible support for Velikovsky's thesis that the Earth has been without a Moon in historical times (see Pensee, Winter 1973, p. 25). Specifically, De Jong refers to the passage "And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night" - reasoning that by "the lesser light the .stars are meant, and no moon is mentioned." Now, as it happens, the planet Saturn was designated as Shamash or "sun" by the Assyro-Babylonian astrologers; and as ...
