121. Astral Kingship [Journals] [Aeon]
... just such a usurper from seizing power. With Marduk no longer in existence, Xerxes surmised that no future rebel would be able to legitimize his rule by taking part in the Annual Festival. (16) Alexander proved him wrong. The Persian kings also recognized the fact that they ruled through the favor of Ahuramazda, the planetary god of light, just as the Assyro-Babylonian kings received their power from the planetary god Marduk. According to Frye, "regarding other gods surely Ahura Mazda was like a king above all gods', perhaps already identified by many with Zeus and other such gods in other pantheons." (17) Ahuramazda was thus the great god, the creator ...
122. The Polar Column: A Physical Model of Myth [Journals] [Aeon]
... , as higher-order solutions will no doubt supercede the present approach. It should also be mentioned that, historically, its concept, as well as my later derivation of the plerosphere, developed from a a series of conversations I had with David Talbott in 1972. At that time, Talbott referred to the polar column as "a cone of light" emanating from a Saturnian body in the boreal heavens. Eight years later he published his brilliant study, The Saturn Myth, but without anything more than a glimmer of a physical model. Talbott mentions what he has termed "the polar configuration," which includes a pictorial conceptualization of the basic elements found in world myth, and ...
123. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... , Harry Mongold is not the only person to have found Einstein's explanation of the Special Theory of Relativity difficult to follow. One factor, of course, is that in 1905 we were still more or less earthbound and he had to use railways to illustrate his arguments where today he would have used spacecraft. Before Einstein, scientists believed that light had to have a physical medium through which its waves could travel, for which purpose they invented ether. This theory meant that light travelled relative to the ether, like sound waves to air. But Einstein abolished the ether and claimed that light must travel relative to every observer (that is, every separate body or system of reference ...
124. Zetetic Scholar Nos. 3 & 4 April 1979 [Articles]
... by the end of the third decade of the century Velikovsky was well within the ranks of European science. In 1939 he moved to the United States and in 1940 he incidentally happened to make a discovery which changed the direction of his life. This involved finding a reasonable but surprising reinterpretation of a certain Egyptian document and thereby shedding a new light on the nature and date of the Biblical Exodus.1 This, in turn, led to other working hypotheses which he intensively investigated for some ten years. Finally, the fruits of his study came to the public attention in 1950 with the publication of Worlds in Collision. Two years later he released Ages in Chaos, which is ...
125. The Gravitational-Electromagnetic Effects of Ultramassive Objects on the Solar System (Part II) [Journals] [Kronos]
... object A on object B acts on points about the center of object B. The tidal force is therefore a differential gravitational force resulting from the fact that massive objects in space are not point masses, but, rather, have extensibility (finite volume). If the approach velocity of the massive object is much less than the speed of light (" c " equal to 300,000 kilometers per second), the tidal effect of such a passage on the planets would most likely be minimal. For example, if the object is the same distance from the Earth as the Sun, and has solar mass, then its tidal pull would be approximately equal to that of ...
126. The Demands of the Saturnian Configuration Theory [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , a caveat: this darkness was described as having been primarily in the sky. Such a darkness, however, could not but have touched Earth and many myths more than hint at this; in some instances, they actually state as much. However the description of such darkness should not be understood as meaning that there was absolutely no light. For anything to be visible at all, there must have been some light. Even though Saturn, at this stage, had not yet flared up to become a virtual sun, it must have shed some light. The myths indicate this. For instance, in the Linga Purana we read: When the night of Brahma born ...
127. Escape from Einstein by Ronald R. Hatch [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , Wilmington, California, available from PACIFIC MERIDIAN PUBLISHING CO., 13540 39th Ave. N. E., Seattle, Wash. 98125, USA for $28 + 15% p&p ) Until the early part of the 20th century, physicists believed that something called the ether' permeated space and was the medium which carried light and electromagnetic radiation. However the Michelson-Morley experiment in 1886 showed that the speed of light in the direction of the Earth's travel is the same as the speed of light perpendicular to this, posing problems for the theory. Some, including Michelson, interpreted the result to mean that the Earth must carry the ether along with it but Einstein's ...
128. The Cause of Gravitation [Books]
... , in which he states: "The assumption or hypothesis is that all space is full of a force acting in straight lines in every direction on matter. Like magnetic attraction, it is not perceptible to our senses, but, unlike magnetic attraction, it is not increased at short distances. This force penetrates all material bodies. Unlike light, nothing is opaque to it and nothing is transparent. In passing through matter, it parts with a proportion of its energy proportional to the mass or density. It is of the nature of pressure, but unlike the pressure of an elastic fluid, it is not reflected and acts in straight lines only. It would force a ...
129. The Nature and Scale of an Exodus Catastrophe Reassessed [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Serpent." (Ellenberger 1982/83: 12-13) In short, evidences of a major catastrophe do not constellate around the middle of the second millennium BC in the way we would expect if Velikovsky was correct in dating one of the greatest catastrophes in [Earth's] history' to that time. This has become particularly apparent in the light of Mandelkehr's articles presenting evidence for an earthwide event around 2300 BC (Mandelkehr 1980/81; 1987; 1988). The archaeological, climatological and geological evidence amassed for that event simply cannot be matched for the mid-second millennium. With all this in mind, we turn to the biblical traditions. The Biblical Indications Before examining the biblical ...
130. The Gravitational-Electromagnetic Effects of Ultramassive Objects on the Solar System [Journals] [Kronos]
... system. PHYSICS OF ULTRAMASSIVE OBJECT ENCOUNTERS Massive objects hurtling through space near our solar system could be produced by one of the many violent yet normal phenomena that occur regularly in our galaxy. The most likely candidates are star explosions (supernovae) that would generate enough momentum to cast a massive object outward at a reasonable fraction of the speed of light. The energy output of the average supernova is 105 ergs, the approximate amount of energy produced by the Sun in its lifetime of 10 billion years.(7 ) Thus, a typical supernova shines with the light of a billion Suns! Supernovae are classified into two different types according to certain parameters of their energy outputs. It ...
