351. Circling the Rings [Aeon Journal $]
... following a strategy of historical reconstruction pioneered by Immanuel Velikovsky. In his hands, all manner of ancient records seeded research in the physical sciences. His work closely mates science and mythology, unlike the research presented here, which allows for diverse syntheses of the historical record. The former existence of solar rings can serve as a resource for mythologists in their reconstruction ... Meir Danino that humans witnessed solar rings in the heavens. Saturnova Plus, a paper delivered at the 1984 Seminar sponsored by the Canadian Society for Interdisciplinary Studies, gathered Biblical and mythological accounts that, in Danino's interpretation, refer to solar rings. The present paper has concentrated on physical evidence, following a strategy of historical reconstruction pioneered by Immanuel Velikovsky. In ... mates science and mythology, unlike the research presented here, which allows for diverse syntheses of the historical record. The former existence of solar rings can serve as a resource for mythologists in their reconstruction of ancient history. Perhaps Velikovsky's scenario of stellar events could be recast to remove its conceptual weakness-- the successive collisions between planets that he proposed in Worlds ...

It is however a fact that it can be used as such; it is most unlikely that this is a fortuitous coincidence. Mythological/Historical Evidence for Earth Tilting? Re-reading parts of Hamlet's Mill for the umpteenth time, my eye latched onto something it had previously missed.

... , the "Opener," who is at times represented with Isis and Nephthys, and then appears as a form of Osiris. We can now begin to glimpse the Egyptian mythology.

Dealing with the earth's rotation, how did the. Egyptians picture it? How was this interaction, so to speak, between the earth and the sky mythologically represented?

354. Young Velikovsky: From Bergson to Berger [Kronos $]
... a paper on the subject. In its attempt to describe a hypothetical "nervous energy", that paper may be regarded as a late development of the nineteenth-century Hirnmythologie (brain mythology) school of anatomophysiology. This school can be traced back to the early works on theoretical psychology by Johann Friedrich Herbart and Gustav Theodor Fechner; at its peak of influence, ... the cabala, and the dreams of mystics, although of course Velikovsky had also been criticized for what many regarded as an uncritical reliance on suspect sources such as the Talmud, myths and legends, and ancient astrological works.(10) Parapsychology has always been somewhat disreputable, often even to those who have practiced it. Even Wilhelm Wundt, the " ... wrongly interpreted by the mysticists who equated Freud's life force with the član vital of Henri Bergson.(9) And many years later, Velikovsky would accuse Jung of indulging in mythical subjects, alchemy, the cabala, and the dreams of mystics, although of course Velikovsky had also been criticized for what many regarded as an uncritical reliance on suspect sources such ...

However, more extreme descriptions, such as it being one-eyed, having a mouth in its belly and devouring the head of victims, seem distinctly mythological.

... period as wholly historical. However the Bible could be regarded as a compilation like the Matter of Britain- a collection of tall stories, real life drama, folklore and eheumerised mythology. The difference is that the Bible has been turned into a historiography of a people. It conveys a religio-political message: when the people of Israel strayed from worshipping Yahweh, ... there is the Tell Dan inscription which apparently mentions the House of David (Dod). Names such as Hadadezer and Ben Hadad have a similar origin. However, there are mythic parallels from his reign- the death of Absalom, hanged from a fork in a tree, his banishment beyond the Jordan- the outer reaches of the sky etc. In ... CR 1998:1 'Forum' p. 30 Damien Mackey robustly defended himself against several contributors. Apparently, he is not prepared to consider the idea that Solomon and Sheba have mythological parallels and he regards the United Monarchy period as wholly historical.

357. The Case for Catastrophe in Historical Times [Kronos $]
... Genius. This is a non-explanation of "Nin-me-sar-ra". It amounts to saying that Enheduanna displayed a degree of poetic genius that was outstanding, that the metaphors used relate to mythic and fabulous events, and seeks no causes and no stimuli. If this approach were utilised in a critique of any modern or recent playwright, poet, author or artist of ... expect perhaps an eye-witness account of an extremely unusual event, or even a tale told by its survivors, or by their descendants. Again, it is a minority who interpret myths and ancient texts in terms of global catastrophes. Notable among their number was Immanuel Velikovsky, who (like Donnelly and Bellamy before him) believed that the ancient records told the ... You burnt down its great gates. One might be forgiven, perhaps, if on the basis of these few lines Inanna were to be thought of in terms of a purely mythical or fabulous entity, a firebreathing (= raining) monster, who roared; or as a form of venomous serpent who issued a poison and fire. At a stretch, ...

... Heliopolis. Surely this is significant, i.e., Jacob as the lord of Shechem and Orus also the lord of Shechem. But there is more than this.

359. Anomalistics - a New Field of Interdisciplinary Studies [Catastrophism Geology $]
... uncertainty into the certainty of either dogmatic dismissal or equally dogmatic sacralization. Such toleration, of course, is difficult to sustain. If anomalists were to choose a figure from classical mythology to symbolize their enterprise (as futurists have chosen Proteus, the legendary prophet who eluded his questioners by continually changing his shape), that figure would probably have to be Tantalus ... equally probing questions may be raised about them. Such anomalies are: retrograde rotation, such as that of the planet Venus; the self-beachings of whales; the seeming senselessness of myths; and the resistance of humor to analytical explanation. What, if any, typology of anomalies is then left to us? The one used, at least implicitly, by ... apparently flourishing animal groups; the relatively sudden collapses of pre-Homeric civilizations in Europe and Asia; the mysterious vitrified forts of megalithic age; and the virtual universality, in the world's mythologies, of tales of universal destruction by fire and flood.
