261. The Origin of Velikovsky's Comet [Journals] [Kronos]
... interesting and often encouraging revelations from space probes of the past two decades, it must be said that little historical evidence of the Venus-comet has been added to the material originally assembled by Velikovsky. This lack is particularly noticeable in comparative mythology, the discipline which forms the backbone of Velikovsky's theory. Here, virtually nothing new has been brought to light bearing on the Venus question. In a series of essays, beginning with the present one, we intend to outline some aspects of ancient Venus symbolism generally overlooked so far. Our study will take us back to the mythical age of "beginnings". We will find much support for Velikovsky's claim of a cometary Venus - and also ...

... . One boundary wall parallel to the main axis of the temple was built along the line marked out by this stretched cord. If the moment of sun- or star-rise or -set were chosen, as we have every reason to believe was the case seeing that all the early observations were made on the horizon, it is obvious that the light from the body towards which the temple was aligned would penetrate the axis of the temple thus built from one end to the other in the original direction of the cord. The Laying of the Foundation-stone Ceremonial We learn from Chabas that the Egyptian word which expresses the idea of founding or laying the foundation-stone of a temple is Senti- a ...

263. Solomon's Temple: An Astronomical Observatory [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... , but not really. A Hebrew student would find the word for oxen in his lexicon under a verbal form which means "to divide or mark out." The Hebrew word for "morning" which also denotes a unit of measurement is related linguistically to "cow" or "ox" and carries with it the traditional distinction between light and darkness. It should also be noted that as we are dealing in Solomon's temple with a circular object called a sea (yam), the Hebrew word may very well derive from the same root word from which comes the Hebrew word for day (yom). The relationship has to do with cosmic circles and a calendar system ...

... very thin layers of sediment where he expected hundreds or thousands of feet deposited. All of which indicates that some other causes lifted the crust in some places and depressed it in others. I offer here those thoughts for whatever they are worth. Since 1947, when your paper was written, you may have thought of the guyots in the light of certain facts made known by Pettersson's expedition. I assume that his finds support your ideas of volcanic origin and submergence of these formations discovered by you in 1942. I accompany this letter with a list including seven questions which I would like to see included in the program of the International Geophysical Year. I shall be grateful to you ...

... existed before it could start to absorb anything, it can only partly consist of absorbed material. On the other hand, parts of the cloud may have gone elsewhere (for instance, absorption by the Sun cannot be excluded). Another approach is via the optical properties of the cloud. Although pure hydrogen has a very good transmittance for light, there is always the so-called Rayleigh scattering, a phenomenon that is common for all gases and causes attenuation of light, especially at short wavelengths. Fig. 5 shows the effect of Rayleigh scattering on transmittance of light for three different gas densities, assuming that the gas was 100% hydrogen. If the density of the cloud were ...

... the process of forming. If it is indeed associated with this very young star system, then it may be only a few times larger than Jupiter, our own solar system's largest planet. It is estimated as less than a 2% probability that it is instead a chance background star. A planet this young glows by its own feeble light, due to retained heat from its formation, especially in the near infra-red where this image was taken. Normally such light would be swamped by the much brighter light of the main stars in the system, but a "slingshot" effect interacting with one of the stars (or another giant planet) appears to have thrown this one ...

267. Thoth Vol I, No. 10: April 22, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... the well-known sun gods of early man, nothing in the mythical record seems to have unnerved the experts. As to the original solar character of the Greek Helios, Latin Sol, Assyrian Shamash, or Egyptian Ra, scholars have maintained an unwavering confidence. And surely you can see why: could it really be doubted that Helios, radiating light from his brow, is our sun? In Egypt, countless hymns to the god Ra extol him as the divine power opening the "day." "The lords of all lands. . . praise Ra when he riseth at the beginning of each day." Ra is the "great Light who shinest in the heavens. ...

Age of Urania is the first age of the Quantavolutionary Period, assigned to run from 14000 to 11000 years ago. Also called the Uranian age. albedo is the fraction of light reflected from a cosmic body. anode is an electron-deficient region in an electric discharge. It is the place towards which electron flow occurs, and can be the source of an ion (q .v .) current - the ions being electron-deficient atoms. apastron means the greatest separation of the principals (q .v .) in ...

... 3, Oct 97, p. 3 Lightning not only creates nitrogen compounds and ozone but causes reactions which acidify rain by a process that is faster than anything that (scientists) presently recognise'. Unusual lightning phenomena include ball lightning which passes through windows, either leaving them untouched or neatly excising a lens of glass, and balls of light being spawned from thunder clouds and moving at high speeds as though with a life of their own. Light displays associated with electrical storms are often far from what is considered normal. Sometimes they emit a yellow-green light and of interest in this respect is the phenomenon of a mysterious green glow in the night sky which is thought to be ...
