... know what the Saturn scenario, or Polar Configuration, is all about but have been unable to obtain a copy of Talbott's earlier book. This presentation is an analysis of universal mythological themes and depicts aspects of the physical model of the ancient Solar System which Talbott has concluded must have been that experienced by early man. Beginning with the 'Golden Age', ... its interdisciplinary research presenting a picture of an electric universe within which the catastrophic events described in myth can be explained. Thornhill covers an amazing range of phenomena from plasma physics to mythical symbols and presents convincing electrical explanations for observed astronomical phenomena which astrophysicists have ad hoc dabs at. Thornhill explains our Sun, surface scars on the Moon and Mars, evidence that ... is a young planet and much more.

... Roms and an edition of Pensée. Sunday morning was kick started by Dwardu Cardona outlining what he himself called the 'bizarre' theory of the Saturnian configuration as constructed over decades of mythological research. Before his audience had time to fully muster their incredulity, Wal Thornhill masterfully gave them some solid astronomical reasons to keep their doubts in abeyance as he outlined recent challenges ... of ancient astronomical records and calendars and the first part of his paper came to a rather radical chronological down-dating. The second part introduced us to Lynn's own views of the Saturn myths, which may not be exactly in accord with those of the Talbott, Cardona, Cochrane school, but are still way beyond entertaining by most scientists, or even mythologists. ... not only presented us with his interpretation of myth as description of configurations seen in the sky by ancient peoples but also introduced us to the idea that such myth was produced as a result of unusual electromagnetic phenomena. This led us directly towards the new ideas which would be propounded on the morrow to an audience perhaps not yet aware of the rather mind-blowing progress ...

... , on a different level, ancient astronomical lore. He is thus able to show that the ancient Hindus were well versed in astronomical matters even though they expressed this science in mythological terms. Moreover, a comparison with similar knowledge contained in the ancient texts of the Near East, and even Egypt, indicates a close cultural connection between India and these civilizations ... to model the traditional cosmography on the basis of their science." [1 This brings to mind Ken Moss's revelation concerning the modern Maya who attempt to explain their ancestors' myths by relating them to the modern sky.

... Earth and the solar system- for example of the value of the persistent traditions of bituminous materials falling from the sky. Velikovsky was the first to consider problems in geology and mythology together to develop valid models. He concluded from the human record that some of the Earth's petroleum deposits are of recent date and are extraterrestrial in origin. This claim of a ... explanations" of meteorites that restricted themselves to purely terrestrial effects (1). In my opinion Velikovsky's greatest contribution to catastrophism is his demonstration of the value of human records, myths and traditions in questions of the past of the Earth and the solar system- for example of the value of the persistent traditions of bituminous materials falling from the sky. Velikovsky ... by thinkers such as Roszak, Thompson, Vallée and Misraki (4). V. only has updated and popularised the use of these records for the substantiation of catastrophes in mythical times.

... . This suggests its origins lay before dynastic Egypt (and the Egyptians practised circumcision) and so called civilisation in general. The wondrous physical phenomena of Exodus is duplicated in the mythology of dynastic Egypt, i.e. it was of mythic age long before Moses was extent. We must presume on that basis a very remote origin in human terms. At this ... we may ask ourselves why should an event so long ago survive within the human psyche. Velikovsky has provided us with the answer, and it is so simple. A cosmic disaster involving a cometary body would have been part of a recurring cycle, the initial terrifying episode periodically reawakened in the psyche by the recurring appearance of the cometary body (or bodies ... the human psyche contains etc. Nowadays, the new order (after a phase of turmoil) has been absorbed by political theorists of various persuasions in revamped modern versions of religious myths. The cycle appears to have continued into the historical period, but less ferociously so, albeit in a weakly fashion. Ancient sites display evidence of unexplained periodic destruction whilst the ...

... and it's going to strike us again if we don't take precautions!' He repeated his theory, from The Cosmic Serpent and The Cosmic Winter, that the catastrophes reported in mythology were caused by the break-up of a super-comet c. 40,000 years ago at the start of the last glaciation.

... I, sits open in front of me here as I write and is totally silent about a battle at or near 'Dur' or Der. Bernard Newgrosh, Manchester The Genesis Mythology Dear Sir, Dwardu Cardona's article 'The River of Ocean' in Review XI (1989), struck some very interesting chords in relation to a book I had recently come across ... , Greece, Mesopotamia, Egypt and North Africa could all stem from a common origin in the Caucasus. Cohane takes us further afield. Using hundreds of examples of place and mythological names based on a very few key phonemes, he argues, in the vein of Cyrus Gordon's Before Columbus, that there is substantial evidence that there were two waves of sea-borne ... groups but Renfrew does not hazard a guess at the location of the one ancestral group.

... , a subject which has become increasingly popular and respectable in scientific circles during recent years.

Their effort, although plausible, is riddled with ... time fragments of the comet collided with our planet. Weaving a cloth from threads of Greek, Biblical, and Egyptian history, Clube and Napier argue convincingly that many of the myths and legends of ancient times can be explained in terms of the evolution of this comet. Cometary fragments, seen apparently fighting in the night sky, were regarded as gods and ...
