31. Variations on a Theme of Philolaos [Journals] [Kronos]
... ", "the House of Zeus", "the Mother of the Gods", and "the Altar and Bond and Measure of Nature". The interpretation of some of these descriptions may be difficult and controversial, but clearly the center was an honored and privileged position. Even the Sun was said to have borrowed part of its light from the Central Fire. In such a system, whether Earth rotates or not is merely a matter of definition. Since Earth always turns its same face toward the Central Fire, the ancients would consider it not to rotate, although from the modern point of view Earth would have completed one sidereal rotation (that is, one rotation ...
32. The Electro-gravitic Theory Of Cosmology [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... . It is taken as a given that gravity and electromagnetism are concurrent counter forces which operate in the universe (of which I believe we exist in but one of many) and generate the celestial bodies by their interactions. I further concur with Halton Arp that the redshifts are not all derived by an expanding universe. Rather, I suggest light traveling through space which is riven with gravitational and electromagnetic fields, must lose energy as it does so. Therefore, the greater the distance light travels, the greater gravitational and, perhaps, electromagnetic interference it will encounter, causing it to lose energy in quantum leaps. This finding has been identified and broadly discussed63 in the scientific literature ...
33. Part II: The Comet [Ragnarok] [Books]
... find something that would produce cyclonic convulsions upon a scale for which the ordinary operations of nature furnish us no parallel. Fifthly, we are to find some external force so mighty that it would crack the crust of the globe like an eggshell, lining its surface with great rents and seams, through which the molten interior boiled up to the light. Would a comet meet all these prerequisites? I think it would. Let us proceed in regular order. CHAPTER 2. WHAT IS A COMET? In the first place, are comets composed of solid, liquid or gaseous substances? Are they something, or the next thing to nothing? It has been supposed by some that ...
34. Saturn's Flare-ups [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... tackle the points in the same order in which they appear in Eggleton's article - "Did Saturn Explode Twice?" - I shall, instead, attempt a sequence in keeping with the chronology of the events discussed. I shall therefore start with matters of planetary identification. Eggleton stated that it was "Yahweh [who] creates the two lights, the Sun and Saturn". "There is little doubt," he continued, "that the Jewish God was originally a Saturn figure as might be readily concluded by virtue of the name El which was the name for both the Jewish God and the name for Saturn." He then went on to add that "Cardona ...
... millions of our contemporaries, when it has long been forgotten by the mass of the population. With this remote event we may find inseparably connected the geographical boundaries of a great state, the language now spoken by the inhabitants, their peculiar manners, laws, and religious opinions. But far more astonishing and unexpected are the connections brought to light, when we carry back our researches into the history of nature. The form of a coast, the configuration of the in . 2 GEOLOGY COMPARED TO HISTORY.

36. The Feast Of Light. Ch.3 In Fear And Trembling (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... From "Mankind in Amnesia" © 1982 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Feast Of Light Most of the religious rites and observances of all creeds have been derived from ancient mysteries that go back to the events of the past in which celestial gods- Saturn, Jupiter and other planetary bodies- participated and left indelible memories. As an example of this notion I shall try in this short section to convey something I understood and wrote about, although in incomplete form, more than three decades ago. I considered not mentioning these events here at all, because, told with such brevity, the story may sound fantastic. But on the chance that I ...
37. Ra as Saturn [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... The Mythological Ra Could Not Have Been The Sun. From the paper read at the Portland World Conference. .. . Thus, for example, Ra was often lauded as "Lord of the Circles" and "he who entereth [or liveth] in the circle. (12) He was described as "the sender forth of light into his Circle" and the "Governor of [his] circle." (13) What is this Circle that the hymns allude to? Egyptologists will immediately inform us that this Circle of which the hymns speak was what the Egyptians referred to as the Duat (or Tuat), a word that has been rendered into English ...
38. Is the Universe Finite? [Journals] [Aeon]
... ), making S equal to 2.8500 x 1013 miles- the arc distance traveled by the blob in the 257 days (or 2.2205 x 107 seconds) between observations. This in turn gives an average velocity for the quasar blob of 1.2835 x 106 miles per second, or almost seven times the speed of light. And "warp-7" is too much even for the theoretical cosmologists to swallow this side of StarTrek, even by suspending literary judgment. (2 ) It was by far too much for Halton Arp. Just for the exercise now, imagine the quasar blob traveling precisely- if improbably- at the velocity of light and back-calculate from ...
... from the Sun from an atmospheric phenomenon. Velikovsky's thesis is that Venus is a new planet in the early cool down state and that its heat is derived from its hot core which is producing the high surface temperature. A greenhouse requires four elements to produce heat above average from sunlight. One of these elements is a glass-enclosed structure through which light can pass and which will stop the heated air inside from escaping to mix with the surrounding atmosphere and dissipating. The second requirement for the process is plenty of light entering the glass-enclosed structure which is converted from short wave radiation to long wave radiation. The other two requirements are water and carbon dioxide in sufficient quantities to trap and hold ...
40. A Fire not Blown [Books]
... of electric shock. El and oth are Hebrew for god', and sign'; a lotus is tse'el. Augurs relied on watching birds and animals, especially small animals which would creep out of holes in the ground when an earthquake was imminent. The hoopoe with its erectile crest was particularly useful when its attention was drawn to earthquake light and changes in electromagnetic states. Its cry was thought to resemble the Greek opopa, I have seen. Augurs must also have watched the quail, Greek ortux, light finder. Ankh, live, and sankh, make to live, are the origin of the Latin sancio, sanctify, a word whose original meaning was to make ...
