102. On Number as Artifact (Part 3: Conclusion) [Horus $]
... made is that the two types of spirals connote two related conundrums. Today one concerns oneself with other pressing matters, but at one time both of these problems were of concern to thinkers, and neither was capable of being resolved within the then-existing parameters of mathematics. This series of articles began by considering two ways of measuring the length of a month: synodic and sidereal. In the second article we adduced the problematic 13, a number not much liked by modem society by nevertheless one which seems to have figured rather prominently in megalithic thought. We raised the question, as we have just done with the double spiral, of what this obviously symbolic number could have meant. It seems to have interchanged rather freely with the number 12. Today's scientist does not deal with number in this way, but there is what must be called an unsettling lack of specificity in dealing with numbers if one delves into the deeper cultural past. Again, Borroff is enlightening: Perhaps the most puzzling to modem scholars is the use of different numbers for parallel symbolic and practical ...

... the last Ice Age through to the present day. These data lead to the expectation that history has been punctuated by: (I) Tunguska-like impacts, singly or as part of fireball swarms; (ii) freezing events of decadal duration, due to cometary dusting of the stratosphere; and (iii) occasional disastrous inundations of coastal areas due to small-body ocean impacts. 11:00 Dr Duncan Steel, Spaceguard Australia Before The Stones: Stonehenge I as a Cometary Catastrophe Predictor? Astronomical hypotheses for the purpose(s) of megalithic monuments have mostly been implicitly based upon an assumption that the designers witnessed the same phenomena as those we observe in the sky today. This assumption is not well-based for phenomena having time-constants of order centuries or millennia, such as the populations of comets and meteoroids in the inner solar system and the ephemeral meteor showers and storms which they produce on the Earth. IRAS observations have indicated that Comet Encke has a trail (not tail) of debris some tens of millions of kilometres long, presumably produced since its latest period of activity ...
104. Second SIS Cambridge Conference Report [SIS Internet Digest $]
... for Interdisciplinary Studies. The purpose- to discuss the near-simultaneous ending of Bronze Age civilizations world-wide, in particular whether the "giant comet" hypothesis, associated principally with the names of Clube& Napier and Hoyle& Wickramasinghe, could be substantiated by ground truth in the archaeological, geological, climatological and historical records. Depending on one's chronology and the geographic region under discussion, the Bronze Age started c.3500 BC and continued for two or three thousand years until approximately 1500-500 BC, encompassing not only the main construction phases of Stonehenge and its megalithic counterparts elsewhere, but also the genesis of kingship, priesthood, human and animal sacrifice, the evolution of religious views from polytheism to monotheism and significantly to astronomers a burgeoning interest in the celestial sphere. The heart of the astronomical thesis is that changes in the Earth's near-space astronomical environment, corresponding to the orbital evolution and hierarchical fragmentation of a giant comet- possibly the progenitor of Encke's comet, have produced surges in the rate of accretion of interplanetary dust and associated episodes of bombardment of larger bodies (diameters 10-100m) on time-scales ...

Catastrophism is not only mainstream, but has hit the silver screen (no pun intended) with the release of "Deep Impact". Electricity in Astronomy Plasma and electricity continue to feature heavily in some of the astronomy discussions in Thoth and the Kronia List, and might even appear in some of the aboriginal artwork showcased on the back cover of this issue.

106. Editorial [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1998:2 (Dec 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Editorial Archaeoastronomy is in the news again, with a number of viewpoints proffered. Graham Hancock presented a three part television series in the Autumn, Quest for the Lost Civilisation, to accompany his new book Heavens Mirror, identifying several ancient civilisation around the world that left terrestrial cosmic markers (see page 6). Complementary evidence from Jean-Pierre Lacroix, sparked by an interest in Charles H. Hapgood's Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings, shows that megalithic sites and observatories are located around the planet in positions that correspond to specific stars in certain constellations (see page 4). Indeed, Archaeoastronomy has become respectable, to the extent that the University of Texas Press has become the contract publisher for the Center for Archaeoastronomy's journal (see page 7). Publications As reported in SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Review 1998:1, the 1997 Cambridge Conference Proceedings have been published, and are available from the Society to members at a reduced price, full details can be found on page ...
107. Graham Hancock Position Statement [SIS Internet Digest $]
... the orthodox 'tombs and tombs only' hypothesis-- is that the three great pyramids of Giza, and the Great Sphinx, form a symbolic architectural model of some of the principal stars of the Duat sky-region (through which the Pharaohs believed that their souls would travel after death) as that sky-region appeared at dawn on the spring equinox in the epoch of 10,500 BC. Citing the geological findings of John Anthony West and Robert Schoch, we have argued, and continue to maintain, that the Great Sphinx and its associated megalithic structures may actually have been built in that distant epoch. We have also argued, and continue to maintain, that the three great pyramids in general are likely to be much younger than the Sphinx and that they should probably be assigned to the Fourth Dynasty (rather than to any other period) because of the alignments of the star shafts. Ultimately, however, our hypothesis does not stand or fall on the precise dates at which individual monuments were built. A symbolic architectural model of the Duat sky region as it last ...
108. Graham Hancock's Heaven's Mirror [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1998:2 (Dec 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Graham Hancock's Heaven's Mirror http://www.channel4.co.uk From the programme series Quest for the Lost Civilisation broadcast on 21, 28 September, and 5 October 1998. The evidence accumulates throughout the series- from the enigmatic and spectacular Nazca Lines in Peru, the largest pieces of graphic art work in the world to the Callanish stone circles of the Outer Hebrides, seemingly randomly-placed megaliths which 'capture' the sun and moon at crucial moments in the year with a precision that would be hard to match even today. The global implications, which Hancock gradually draws out, are of a previously unidentified race of navigators and seafarers whose civilisation was destroyed in the cataclysm that overtook the world at the end of the last Ice Age. The survivors were determined to preserve the treasures of their lost civilisation's knowledge and to pass it on to the future so that it would never be forgotten. Heavens Mirror, by Graham Hancock& Santha Faiia publ. Michael Joseph; 1998. Hardcover- 352pp ...
109. The Atlantis Blueprint [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:2 (Dec 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents World Wide Web focus The Atlantis Blueprint www.flem-ath.com Every summer solstice thousands of pilgrims gather at sacred sites; Stonehenge, the Great Pyramid, Machu Picchu and many others to pay respect to the past, hoping perhaps, to merge in some way with the mysterious power represented by the great megaliths. It seems that a long lost truth lies just beyond our grasp, hidden within the lines and crevices of these massive stones. Many feel certain that we might recapture that elusive past if only we could find the key. In Atlantis Blueprint we will show how these ancient structures are ultimately linked to a vast geographic survey. We have deciphered the code which ties these mysterious sites together as part of an ambitious enterprise undertaken by scientists from Atlantis. Table of Contents Preface: Coins in a fountain- earth dragons- Feng shui- geomancy- cording the Temple- from priest-craft to science- the blueprint- Rand and Colin's collaboration.
