The present volume ...
42. Mysteries of the Sacred Universe [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... presents a much larger and more complete cosmological picture. I'll explain. The Srimad-Bhagavatam's mode of presentation is very different from the familiar modern approach. Although the Bhagavatam's "Earth" (disk-shaped Bhu-mandala) may look unrealistic, careful study shows that the Bhagavatam uses Bhu-mandala to represent at least four reasonable and consistent models: (1 ) a polar-projection map of the Earth globe, (2 ) a map of the solar system, (3 ) a topographical map of south-central Asia, and (4 ) a map of the celestial realm of the demigods.

43. The Enclosed Sun-Cross [Books]
... "east" of Omaha, and to the modern mind the "four corners of the world" only serves as a vague metaphor for "the entire globe." To the ancients, however, "the Four Corners of the World" possessed explicit meaning; originally, the phrase referred not to geography but to cosmography, the "map" of the celestial kingdom, laid out in the polar heaven. One of the few scholars to recognize this quality of the mythical "four corners" was O'Neill: "It results from any full study of the myths, symbolism, and nomenclature of the Four Quarters that these directions were viewed in the strict orthodoxy of heavens mythology ...
44. Plato's Atlantis and Prehistoric Europe [Articles]
... the Pillars of Herakles, in the Atlantic Ocean. SLIDE 1 : This is just a slide of Atlantis as it is traditionally pictured, from the work of a 17th century Jesuit scholar (Athanasius Kircher, Mundus Subterraneus, 1665), and he evidently took the story in the Timaeus very literally. North is at the bottom of that map, incidentally, if you are worried about having America on the right hand side. It's nothing to do with Peter Warlow, I'm afraid.- Well, maybe, it's a bit late for that. The description of the Atlantic land-mass in the Timaeus is fairly specific. Plato says that it faced the Pillars of Herakles, that ...
45. The Use of the 7-Base Measuring System in Ancient Britain and the Continent [Journals] [Aeon]
... of which is in the United States- thereby presenting a possible answer to the speculation posed by Hadingham concerning the antiquity of this measuring system. Following is a presentation of the conclusions I had reached concerning such octagons and the 7-base system in ancient times as they relate to the discoveries made by Frank. Figure 1 Figure 2: Scaled Grid Map of Stonehenge One grid space = 23.8 ' Figure 1 (Stonehenge based on a 1:250 plan) is a map produced in 1974 by a team of surveyors under the direction of Professor Alexander Thom, upon which I have superimposed a scaled grid. The size of the blocks composing the grid was based on the distance ...
46. Asteroid Researcher Discovers Prehistoric Moon Map [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]

It has been identified by Dr Philip Stooke of the University of Western Ontario in Canada. It was carved into a rock in one of Ireland's most remarkable prehistoric tombs ...
... always varies from time to time. The bearing required has, in the first instance, to be determined by the instruments already referred to in relation to the magnetic meridian. Having made such an observation, the next thing we have to do is to determine the astronomical or true north, which is the only thing of value. Magnetic Map of the British Isles, showing the Variation at Different Points If the magnetic variation has been determined for the region, we may use a map. Such a map as that shown below gives us the lines along which in the British Isles the compass variation west of north reaches certain values. From such a map for Egypt we learn ...
48. The Martian Deluge [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... a microscope. What in fact characterises our Remote Sensing (RS) in geology and other disciplines is its indirectness. We record information so that we can use it at our convenience and on any desired scale. Instead of making a reconnaissance flight we'study aerial photographs; instead of monitoring a scintillometer aboard an aircraft we study a graph or a map. The origin of such indirect observation is lost in the mists of prehistory. Maybe it started when a young hunter, after seeing a strange animal, made a drawing in the sand for the old clan chief, or when the first shaman scratched an antelope on a piece of bone. In geology, surveying a landscape from a ...
49. The Punctuation Marks of Geological History [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... ! Even at the present level of the deserted city (about 12,000 feet) very little food can be grown. Ears of corn reach a length of only 3 inches. This is evidence of extreme and recent geological catastrophe, and there is much more South American evidence to support it. In my studies of geology and ancient maps I have found many additional indications of radical change to the earth's surface. It has been ascertained, for example, that the last North American ice cap, which covered 4,000,000 square miles and probably reached a thickness of 2 miles over the Great Lakes- while at the same time Antarctica had had a temperate climate ...
50. Earth Parturition and Moon Birth [Books] [de Grazia books]
... from a model fracture of an unmoving globe. The fracture moved rapidly; there is no essential difference between cracking a crystal ball and an immense globe; theory apart, the cuts are fresh, report the oceanographers of the fracture . Figure 19. The Earth Today: Cleavages, Welts, Mountain Folds and Volcanism. This map is merely suggestive. Submarine continental shelves are treated here as "land." Many details that indicate recent quantavolutions of the Earth are omitted. Only a globe can represent accurately and vividly the features-fractures, mountain ranges, volcanos, sea mounts, continental shelves, and torques of the crust- that are conceptualized in the text. Volcanos ...
