171. The Legends of the Jews: Volume III [Books]
... GOD The cave in which Moses concealed himself while God passed in review before him with His celestial retinue, was the same in which Elijah lodged when God revealed Himself to him on Horeb. If there had been in it an opening even as tiny as a needle's point, both Moses and Elijah would have been consumed by the passing Divine light,  which was of an intensity so great that Moses, although quite shut off in the cave, nevertheless caught the reflection of it, so that from its radiance his face began to shine.  Not without great danger, however, did Moses earn this distinction; for as soon as the angels heard ...
172. Thoth Vol III, No. 6: March 31, 1999 [Journals] [Thoth]
... . . . .by Dwardu Cardona SHOEMAKER-LEVI SPECULATIONS . . . . . . . . . . .By Wal Thornhill SUMMARY OF RALPH JUERGEN'S ELECTRIC SUN MODEL. . by Wal Thornhill- STEREOSCOPIC VIEWPOINT OF CATASTROPHICS By Amy Acheson Titus FitzImeter Said, "The planimeter Agoragraphs a vicinity." Herein he was right, But he scarcely shed light On the Circular Points at Infinity. ~_ The Space Child's Mother Goose_ While the Discipline of Catastrophics may not illuminate infinity any more than Titus FitzImmeter's planimeter, its tremendous scope gives it an advantage over traditional science and religion as a tool for understanding the recent history of the solar system. And this is why: Science, ...
173. Catastrophe and Divine Fires [Books] [de Grazia books]
... the terrible night of the killing of the first-born, was said by one legend to be a bright night, as bright as the brightest day of the year [6 ]. This legend contrasts with another, that the darkness persisted in the Egyptian capital. Might the comet tail be falling so densely in some places as to block the light, while the comet appeared larger than the sun in others, at least to accommodate these particular differences? Perhaps. The prophet Isaiah, recalling the Exodus long afterwards, preached: "The People that walked in darkness have seen a great light; they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death (which must mean Egypt ...
174. Science Frontiers [Journals] [SIS Review]
... star being observed blinks out not once in a clean-cut fashion but in a complex scenario that may indicate the presence of a second body. To illustrate, during the 1975 occultation of a star by the asteroid Eros "all sorts of people saw things," meaning secondary events or extra dimmings. Another kind of supporting evidence comes from the light curve of 44 Nysa, which closely resembles that of an eclipsing binary star. (Science News, 114:36, 1978.) NINE-TENTHS OF THE UNIVERSE IS UNSEEN In a rather lengthy article on the disturbing discoveries of modern astronomy, astronomer Ivan King is quoted as follows: "The most serious problem in extragalactic astronomy today is ...
175. Morning Star* [Journals] [Aeon]
... long and industrious career, complained of never having had a chance to see Mercury through the misty skies of his native country. One question that arises is this: Would such a rarely seen body, such a difficult object to observe, have inspired the numerous mythological tales associated with this planet? Could humankind have really counted this speck of light, seen for but a few days each year, when seen at all, as one of the great gods of his pantheons? How can we account for Nusku/Mercury being lauded as the "flame of heaven," "he who hurls down terror, whose clothing is splendour," "forceful fire god," " ...
176. Chapter XV: Temples Directed to the Stars [Books]
... scattered all along the Nile valley. When we come to examine these non-solar temples, the first question is. Do they resemble the solar ones in construction? Are the horizontal telescope conditions retained? The evidence on this point is overwhelming. Take the Temple of Hathor at Denderah. It points very far away from the sun; the sun's light could never have enfiladed it; in many others pointing well to the north or south the axis extends from the exterior pylon to the Sanctuary or Naos, which is found always at the closed end of the temple; we have the same number of pylons, gradually getting narrower and narrower as we get to the Naos, and in ...
177. USGS versus Fringe [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... since 1965, admitted in 1969, in a letter to R.C . Willey, secretary of the American Society of Dowsers, that the USGS did not have enough information to speak negatively on the value of dowsing. Pecora started to refer all queries about dowsing to the American Society of Dowsers (see Willey, 1970). Earthquake lights, luminous phenomena reportedly seen shortly before, during and shortly after earthquakes, have been relegated for some time (perhaps a century) to the limbo of damned facts, but they are now being readmitted, though halfheartedly, in another News Release of the USGS, ten years after the Water Witching Bull. Somebody up there clearly has ...
178. The Velikovsky Affair [Books] [de Grazia books]
... that this evidence would be found, and it has been found. There is reasonable ground to hope that the new investigation which takes electric charges and magnetic fields into account will, first of all, succeed in explaining the behaviour of comets especially in the proximity of the Sun. The current explanation, according to which the pressure of solar light drives a cometary tail as a rigid rod at enormous velocities when the head is close to the perihelium, is not much more satisfactory than the one proposed by Newton when he said that the tails of comets turn away from the Sun for the same reason that the smoke from a fire ascends perpendicularly, or in the case of a ...
179. Apollo and the Planet Mars [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon I:1 (Jan 1988) Home | Issue Contents Apollo and the Planet Mars Ev Cochrane In the Birth of Tragedy, Friedrich Nietzsche developed the aesthetic dialectic of the Apollonian and the Dionysian, concepts which were to become a permanent part of our culture. For Nietzsche the Apollinian force symbolized all that was light, harmonious, and orderly, the form-giving force apparent in the best of Greek architecture and sculpture. The Dionysian force, in contrast, represented that which was dark and wild; epitomized best, perhaps, by the reckless abandon and mystic ecstacy of the Dionysian rites described in Euripedes' Bacchae. The modern conception of Apollo-including scholarly research into the ...
180. The Electro-gravitic Theory of Celestial Motion [Journals] [Aeon]
... Furthermore, gravitational theory is based on the supposition that interplanetary space is empty. Velikovsky properly challenged these assumptions in 1950 in Worlds in Collision, where he stated, "The accepted celestial mechanics notwithstanding, the many calculations that have been carried out to many decimal places or verified by celestial motions stand only if the sun, the source of light and warmth and other radiation. . . is as a whole an electrically neutral body, and the planets in their orbits are neutral bodies. "Fundamental principles in celestial mechanics. . .must come into question if the sun possesses a charge sufficient to influence the planets in their orbits and the comets in theirs." (3 ...
