... age to discern the underlying cosmic order to which the myths refer. Our reconstruction of this order includes the following elements: In the earliest age recalled by man the planet Saturn was the dominant celestial body. Ancient races the world over record that there was once a "Golden Age"- a kingdom of cosmic harmony ruled by a central light god. Numerous sources identify this light god as the planet Saturn. Accounts of Saturn's appearance suggest that the planet hung ominously close to the earth. In early ritual and astronomy Saturn appears as the "primeval sun," described as a figure of "terrifying splendour." Today, Saturn appears as a bare speck of light following ...

... it with a veil - of blue, purple and red. In 40:20 Moses placed the testimony into the Ark, while in 40:34 a cloud covered the tent of the congregation and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. Moses was unable to enter the tent because the cloud (smoke) and glory (bright light) prevented him. In 40:38 the cloud of the Lord was upon the tabernacle by day and fire was upon it by night - in the sight of all the Israelites and throughout their journey. Previously, in Exodus 34:5 , the Lord had descended in a cloud and had stood next to Moses - and in ...

... at the use V makes of this material. On WIC p.126, V writes that if the direction of the earth's axis were to change suddenly, then the seasons would change both their intensity and their order. He goes on: The Egyptian papyrus known as Papyrus Anastasi IV contains a complaint about gloom and the absence of solar light; it says also: The winter is come as (instead of) summer, the months are reversed and the hours are disordered. '" Again, on WIC p.132, V writes in his section "The Shadow of Death": "The years of darkness in Egypt are described in a number of other documents ...
145. On Saturn And The Flood [Journals] [Kronos]
... outer reaches of the sky. In Egyptian eyes it was Horus-Jupiter assuming royal power, leaving Osiris to reign over the kingdom of the dead. My conclusion that, as a result of its interplay with Jupiter, Saturn became a nova,(7 ) I found confirmed in many ancient sources, in which Saturn is regularly associated with brilliant light; but I was led to this idea first of all by a certain clue contained in the Biblical account of the Deluge. The story as found in the book of Genesis starts with these words: "And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the Flood were upon the earth."(8 ) ...

... from the ocean . In addition to the heavenly river being a counterpart to an earthly river, it is also designated by various names such as the Apsu, Engur and Hubur, which have no terrestrial counterparts. The Sumerians conceived the Apsu as a single body of water completely surrounding Earth , with its pure light reaching heaven . The word ps' denotes the ceasing, the not being of the earth (i .e . where the earth stops) '; the word is connected to the Hebrew apse eres ends of the earth' . Other root words are ab hole, hollow, sea' [27 ...

... read on the 7th day'. Velikovsky asks: 7 days after what? '. The spectacle of one or more fiery objects in the sky headed towards planet earth could well have burned itself into the minds of everybody and would not have been forgotten by the survivors. [Elsewhere Velikovsky surmises that it was a nova, a bright light that shone for 7 days.] Centuries afterwards, Isaiah prophesies a day of great slaughter, with rivers and streams of water on every high mountain and hill when the light of the sun shall be sevenfold as the light of 7 days'. This could also be interpreted as the light of the seven days'. Was Isaiah ...

... same. Observations of Jupiter and Saturn by Voyagers I and II show the same electrical phenomena as observed around the Sun. Jupiter and the Sun were the original twin stars of our solar system, other bodies being captured one by one at later dates.* [* Cf. H. Tresman and B. O'Gheogan, "The Primordial Light?", SISR II:2 (Dec. 1977), pp. 35ff.; I.

... side and extremely elongated away from the Sun to form what is known as the magnetotail (the end of which is not here shown). Shadows of airplanes upon clouds are also often surrounded by multi-hued auras, or glories, when seen from above, an effect that owes its origin to droplets in the cloud itself which reflect and scatter light waves. (25) And what are rainbows if not colossal auras (26) created by the refraction of sunlight by moisture in the atmosphere, each droplet of which acts as a minute prism? Who has not opened a children's book of knowledge to be fascinated by pictures depicting the Specter of the Brocken in which the observer's own ...

... during these storms reveals occasional very powerful discharges of long duration from positively charged regions near the cloud tops to the ground. In contrast, typical lightning arises from negatively charged regions of clouds. (Turman. B.N .; "Detection of Lightning Superbolts, "Journal of Geophysical Research. 82-2566-2568, 1977.)
