191. Myths, Monuments, and Mnemonics [Journals] [Horus]
... earlier view. It suggests that the great monumental civilizations of the past were the culmination of thirty thousand years or so of complex, intelligent human development rather than the dim beginnings of abstract knowledge in the stone-age mind. The Acropolis at Athens - Greece The Pyramid of the Magician - Uxmal With this in mind the monuments of Egypt, the megaliths of Britain and Ireland, the ceremonial cities of ancient Mexico, and other such sites around the world all acquire a new dimension. Not only religious symbolism but clues to sophisticated understanding of numbers, geometry, and astronomical cycles may be encoded in their design and structure. They stand as timeless engrams in the collective human memory - great ...

... she has worked in special education. Thomas McCreery (B .Sc. Hons.- Strathclyde University); After initially working in military applications of acoustics, Mr. McCreery was employed as an acoustical consultant in Europe. At present, he lectures in physics at Cardonald College, Glasgow, and is also leading a project to resurvey Scottish megalithic sites. Mr. McCreery is currently involved in highly important symposia on Archaeoastronomy. Earl R. Milton (Ph.D ., Univ. of Alberta); Dr. Milton, a spectroscopist, is Associate Professor in the Dept. of Physics at the Univ. of Lethbridge. He is the editor of the recently published book ...
193. The Atlantis Researches by Paul Dunbavin (Book review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... cycle. This he suggests may have really been a 60 year cycle based on alternate phases of 5 and 6 years and that would have achieved a more refined reconciliation. This is a very useful book to have at hand and one that I fully recommend. However, I have purposefully not mentioned his identification of the Atlantis legend with the megalithic culture as this, I feel, is strained. ...
194. The Earliest Arrival of Celts in the British Isles [Journals] [Kronos]
... , were probably P-Celts, whose language, though understood from Gaul to Bohemia, would not have been understood by the Q-Celts of Ireland.(20) Before leaving the subject of synchronization, we might do well to try to correlate the linguistic separations detailed above with the stages conventionally recognized for the construction, deconstruction, and reconstruction of the megalithic monument at Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain in England. Almost without exception, archeologists agree that Stonehenge I (consisting chiefly of earthworks) was built by non-Indo-Europeans - possibly ancestral to the Berbers or the Basques. But most of those who are willing to speculate about ethnicity believe that Stonehenge II and III (consisting chiefly of massive boulders) were ...

... to be a certain overlapping of interest between the readers of this Review and our own readers. In the future, it is hoped that exchanges of interest and information between us may develop. STONEHENGE VIEWPOINT obtainable from 2821 De La Vina Street, Santa Barbara, California, 93105, contains interesting articles based on a study of the world's ancient megaliths and matters arising therefrom, together with a very comprehensive catalogue of books available on a wide variety of subjects which are likely to be of interest to anyone versed in the ideas of Immanuel Velikovsky. (Price $3 for six issues.) It is also available in the U.K . from 51 Charminster Avenue, Bournemouth, ...
196. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... . Possibly Egypt was the stronger party in Tuthmose I's time: certainly this ascendancy had been lost by the time of Hatshepsut: it was regained by Tuthmose III. R. M. Amelan, Manchester & B. O'Gheoghan, Esher Eclipse Neurosis?Dear Sir, It has always been a mystery to me why people, when discussing the megalithic observatories and so on, make so much fuss over eclipses. I've seen a few in my time, since being allowed by my grandfather to stay up late one night to see Halley's comet (I was 7 at the time but that's another story). Eclipses can be interesting and sometimes spectacular, but once they are over, ...
197. Comments [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... like "neodarwinism" ' - to distinguish it from the ideas of the Noachian deluge people (who are still around). Derek Ager * * * I am sorry about your hesitancy about publishing in such a journal'. I have read very little on Atlantis, but I can give at least one example. The discovery of subaquatic megalithic ruins off the Bahamas is given by Atlantologists as evidence for their theses. According to them, the ruins are more than ten thousand years old; the flooding thus could be due to sealevel adjustment during melting of ice-cap ice. But if it could be shown (for instance on geological grounds) that there has been a more recent ...
198. A Cosmic Debate [Books] [de Grazia books]
... take note. Educators, take note. Why have these models been allowed to persist? Is history but an obsessed recapitulation of disastrous experiences? Is it but a shell-shocked capering? Call the roll of the ancient civilizations: Egypt, Mesopotamia, Palestine, Crete, Cyprus, the Aegean, Greece, the Etruscans, the Romans, the Megalithic pre-historic humans of Europe, the Olmecs and Mayans, the Peruvians, the North American Indians, China, India, Iran, and so forth. Wherever one ventures equipped with the revolutionary theory, old historical evidence is reshaped and new theories emerge. Matters large and matters small become involved. How did the ballgames of many cultures come ...
199. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... hundreds of shooting stars an hour and the zodiacal cloud would experience an enhanced brightness while in the dust zone. Turning then to what he called historical mysteries, Mark Bailey reminded us of the ancient Babylonians' obsession with astronomy and their belief that terrestrial and celestial events were related. Their ziggurats were built about the same time as the European megalithic monuments which indicated a similar obsession with the sky. Why should any of these people have bothered if the sky was exactly as it is now? One of the classical mysteries was the belief that the Milky Way marked the former path of the Sun. If dust had formed a bright zodiacal band, then when it eventually faded the ...
200. The Garden, the Fall, and the Restoration [Journals] [Kronos]
... that title.] It is inappropriate here to offer a lengthy catalogue of the physical evidence of advanced human cultures in prehistory. Such evidence has been gathered and presented in detail by a number of researchers(1 ) and includes great walls and roads now submerged under oceans; copper and iron mines tens of thousands of years old; giant megalithic grids of menhirs and standing stones; other megalithic stones too heavy to move with modern cranes, yet somehow transported far from their quarries (such as the 1000 ton trilithon at Baalbek); imprints of sandal-clad human feet in sandstone conventionally dated in millions of years; and so on. Based on such fragmentary and enigmatic evidence, no ...
