311. On Comets and Kings [Journals] [Aeon]
... following observation on the current status of cometary research: "There can be little doubt that an appreciation of the possible role of comet-induced catastrophism in the history and evolution of the Earth has now revolutionized our understanding of the status of comets and opened up new and previously unsuspected lines of research relating to cometary cosmogony." (8 ) In light of these recent developments it may be of some interest to review the ancient mythology of the comet. Is it possible, as Velikovsky maintained, that the ancient's may have preserved in their sacred traditions some memory of the catastrophic propensities of comets? The Mythology of the Comet That comets were universally regarded as harbingers of natural disasters of one ...

... of the pendulum must be measured separately. In the case of a charged body, the increase in the velocity of descent of the pendulum may be accompanied by a decrease in the velocity of ascent or vice versa and thus the number of swings in a unit of time would remain the same for charged and non-charged bobs. THE BENDING OF LIGHT EXPERIMENT Is a beam of light deflected from a rectilinear path when traveling through an electromagnetic field? The answer can be found in a laboratory experiment or by observation of starlight passing near Jupiter. In the latter experiment, one needs to pay attention to the latitudes of the Jovian magnetic field that the light passes through (i .e ...

313. Saturn: In Myth and Religion [Journals] [Kronos]
... . . . when Mars clashed with Saturn, it passed between that planet' and the Earth. Coming closer to the Earth than Saturn, it loomed almost as large as the giant planet. ' It must also be remembered that when Saturn was removed into the blackness of space, Mars followed suit. Both luminaries became mere pin-points of light in the night sky. Looked at in this way, the confusion of such pin-points of light is not hard to conceive."(12) Although I would not, today, alter the above scenario, I do wish to revoke it as the reason behind the Mars-Saturn confusion. Continuing research now indicates that the first appearance of ...

314. Searching for Answers to Solar Mysteries [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... and nobody has a good solution for it. Alternatively, scientists from Marshall have suggested that energy is pumped into the corona through a series of little explosive effects - microflares - that occur all over the place." There are lots of theories, but no one knows the answer. The corona is hard to study from Earth because its light is relatively dim compared to the blindingly bright disk of the sun. The white light corona can be viewed from Earth only during a solar eclipse or with a special instrument called a coronagraph. The white light coronagraph, developed by the High-Altitude Observatory in Boulder, Colo., will measure the density of the electrons in the coronal white ...

... constructed upon half-truths. Chapter 1: What's the Secret? We begin with a cuneiform tablet from the lost city of Assur; its secret writing and cryptic comments lead us to consider the purpose of the ancient mystery schools' and the meaning of the ancient Mysteries. Why was a divine child born in the underworld? Why did a bright light penetrate the darkness of the underworld? What mystery was hidden since the creation of the world? Did Christianity begin as a mystery school; do we really understand the parables in the gospels? Why was mankind created by the gods; who were these gods? Ch. 2: Love on the Mountain. The biblical legend of the ...

316. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... , I have just returned from a holiday in Greece during which I was fortunate enough to visit most of the major sites except Olympia. At each site visited, either Apollo or Athena (individually or in association) was responsible for the emergence of the site into the prominence they now enjoy. Athena's role can be readily seen in the light of Velikovsky, but Apollo remains an enigma. Accepting the premise that the major gods have an astronomical origin, Apollo's usual explanation of being a sun god does not readily fit into Velikovskian concepts. Perhaps one of your members has some ideas and can place Apollo in his rightful place? R. A. Herring, Bracknell, Berkshire ...

... , shown to the left. The BEAM is the width of the vessel at its widest point. The average width is the deck area divided by the length. "LOFTING" a vessel is "drawing it" full sized, on the flat ground, i.e ., surveying the layout for trueness to the intended shape. LIGHT SHIP displacement of a vessel is the weight of water displaced by immersion of the complete vessel without cargo or passengers. FULLY LADEN refers to the vessel, filled to capacity. (This vessel was probably never "filled to capacity".) DEPTH is the vertical distance from the lowest point of the ship's bottom to the deck surface ...

... the same road (life, learning), but everything you thought of as "left" becomes "right". You see the other side of buildings and trees along the way. Everything is the same, yet different. Under the Saturnian paradigm, even everyday expressions can have startlingly different meanings. Phrases like "in a different light", "something new under the sun", or "it dawned on me" evoke images of an alien sky with an entirely different sun than the one we're accustomed to. The new viewpoints can be exciting. They can be scary. They can take years to develop, or they can come into focus in the blink ...

... Pallas Athene-fully armed and with a shout [1 ]. She was cometary Venus-fiery-faced, owl-eyed, helmeted and horned, with a long gown and hair trailing behind. Meanwhile, in Mesopotamia the Akkadians were also chanting hymns to Venus, going here by the name of Inanna:[2 ] By night she sends out light like the Moon does. At noonday sends out light like the Sun does. The mistress of Evening whose largeness is until the limit of Heaven... The Holy light that fills the Heavens. Inanna who shines as far as the Sun. These words, along with the symbols of Inanna (Figure 31) part the curtains ...

... , but it wouldn't be Morning and Evening Star. And you would have to twist your mind into a pretzel to justify some sort of planet Venus/comet/Morning Star configuration. A star is something that shines brightly. We, of course, know that a star is a sun or faraway galaxy that appears as a pinpoint of light, at least to the unaided eye. And we are certainly smart enough to know that if a passage describes something shining brightly in the sky, and it isn't the Sun, and it isn't the Moon, that it has to be a pin-point of light like a planet or a star. Everybody knows that. We are confused ...
