61. The Enclosed Sun-Cross [Books]
... .. " (17) But if one myth identifies the arms of the sun-cross as four paradisal rivers, there are other interpretations of the cross as well, for this primal image produced a wide-ranging and coherent symbolism, as I shall now attempt to show. THE CROSSROADS From Saturn, the central sun, flowed four primary paths of light. In the myths these appear as four rivers, four winds, four streams of arrows, or four children, assistants, or light-spirits bearing the Saturnian seed (the life elements) through the four quarters of the celestial kingdom. The sun-cross and enclosed sun-cross , depicting the four life-bearing streams, thus serve as universal signs of the ...
62. THE ROAD TO SATURN (EXCERPTS FROM AN AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL ESSAY) [Journals] [Aeon]
... next day I was out hunting for Ages in Chaos. The man George Wickman had said will never be born had already lived half his life. True- Velikovsky might not have been entirely correct about the specific set of "miracles" he sought to explain; but, in a more general way, he had shed a bright and scholarly light on the meaning behind religious beliefs to say nothing of many of the world's ancient marvels. In the meantime, scientific discoveries had already vindicated several of the crucial points he had raised. More than that, as in the case of the radio dispatches from Jupiter, some of them had actually been predicted by him. Evidence was discovered ...
63. Saturn's Cosmos [Books]
... even less do writers on the subject seem aware that the pictograph of the enclosure sun is a straightforward portrait of Saturn and his legendary home. It is not for want of evidence that the experts have missed this connection. The only obstacle is the a priori world view of the researchers themselves- who presuppose that all references to the primordial light god can only signify the solar orb. In connection with our sun today, the ancient language of the enclosure will appear esoteric or meaningless. Of Re, the Coffin Texts say, "We honour him in the sacred enclosure." (5 ) Re is the "sender forth of light into his Circle." (6 ...
... respectively the emblem of Zeus, of Baal, of the sun, of the sun-god, of the sun-chariot of Api the fire-god, of Indra the rain-god, of the sky, the skygod, and finally the deity of all deities, the great God, the Maker and Ruler of the Universe. It has also been held to symbolize light or the god of light, of the forked lightning, and of water. It is believed by some to have been the Oldest Aryan symbol. In the estimation of others it represents Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva, Creator, Preserver, Destroyer. It appears in the footprints of Buddha, engraved upon the solid rock on the ...
65. Pensée [Journals] [SIS Review]
... spanning the twenty years from 1953 and culminating in the remarkable story of the British Museum's suppression of the results of its tests on material from Tutankhamen's tomb. VENUS AND HYDROCARBONS - A reply to Dr W. T. Plummer of the University of Massachusetts on the composition of Venus' atmosphere. VENUS' ATMOSPHERE - An extensive discussion in the light of the space probe data. A REPLY TO STIEBING - Examines Dr W. H. Stiebing's criticisms of AGES IN CHAOS in the light of the stratigraphical record; followed by supportive excerpts from unpublished works on "Scarabs" and "Tiryns". MY CHALLENGE TO CONVENTIONAL VIEWS IN SCIENCE - The complete text of Velikovsky's paper given at ...
66. Physics, Astronomy and Chronology [Articles]
... neutral part of the nucleus, that's the neutron, breaks down and becomes a proton and an electron. n ® p++ e- + n (neutron ®proton+ electron+ anti-neutrino) That's not a good physical equation, the thing is not balanced, so physicists invented something called the anti-neutrino. The anti-neutrino goes through twelve light years of lead without stopping, so it's very difficult to catch them, but physicists have convinced themselves that they have caught them, so we'll presume that they do exist. This is the equation that applies when you have what they call beta-decay which is when the element changes from, let's say, carbon-14 to nitrogen-14, they increase ...
67. Einstein and Relativity [Journals] [SIS Review]
... by a very small amount, than a precisely similar clock situated at one of the poles under otherwise identical conditions. ' [2 , italics added] Even at everyday speeds, motion in a curve affects a body differently from straight line motion. The difference is likely to be even greater at very high speeds close to the speed of light, yet Einstein made no attempt to prove his assumption that his result for uniform motion would also apply to motion in a curve. A letter to New Scientist pointing this out ( 'Letters', 21st October 1995) provoked one response which discussed the effects of gravity (not part of Einstein's original analysis) and another which claimed ...
68. Intimations of an Alien Sky [Journals] [Aeon]
... primitive man endowed them with life and could best compare them to the living things he saw around him- and this included himself. As I have indicated in earlier works, (3 ) the anthropomorphism of the heavenly bodies was nurtured despite the realization that these spheres could have been anything but human. To our ancient progenitors, these celestial lights were mysterious beings who followed a law unto themselves. Totally impervious to man's needs or desires, they were, in more than one respect, absolutely supreme. Requiring a generic name, these mysterious celestial beings eventually became known as gods- which, in whatever language or dialect thereof, was at first an indistinctive term employed to describe ...
69. The Shadow Of Death, Part 1 Venus Ch.6 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... smoke of the volcanoes caused darkness, not complete, but profound. This condition prevailed for decades, and only very gradually did the dust subside and the water vapours condense. "A vast night reigned over all the American land, of which tradition speaks unanimously: in a sense the sun no longer existed for this ruined world which was lighted up at intervals only by frightful conflagrations, revealing the full horror of their situation to the small number of human beings that had escaped from these calamities."(6 ) "Following the cataclysm caused by the waters, the author of the Codex Chimalpopoca, in his history of the suns, shows us terrifying celestial phenomena, twice ...
70. The Origin And Evolution Of Stars [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... with anything resembling accuracy, determine the distance of a white dwarf via its redshift, one cannot tell much about it, including its mass. The most direct contradiction to the theory of stellar evolution of old red giant stars shedding mass to become white dwarf stars was exposed by Dewey B. Larson, who explains: "Even in the light of conventional theory, the hypothesis that the [old red giant] stars `move rapidly to the left of the HR [Hertzsprung-Russell] diagram [from the red giant region] and then downward, ' meanwhile shedding mass, is untenable. MOVEMENT TO THE LEFT FROM THE RED GIANT REGION INVOLVES AN INCREASE IN THE MASS OF A ...
