... replicate primordial conditions on Earth-- to duplicate conditions in Jupiter's atmosphere. They published Miller's findings in the Astronomical Journal [15 which generated considerable media attention. During these earlier days (circa1961 and prior), Sagan was fascinated by UFOs and had conjectured that mankind's mythology-- another fascination-- was in some measure a legacy of contact with aliens. But his burgeoning reputation as a speculator was becoming too exotic for the tastes of his colleagues, especially Miller, so he not only backed off from UFOs but also became ... to attack those whose views are even more outlandish." [16 Nevertheless, such thoughts surfaced throughout the rest of his career, perhaps beginning with his first serious effort, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Dragons of Eden, a compendium of ideas about dreams, evolution, and myths, a book in which he comes perilously close to espousing Velikovsky's collective amnesia by speculating that ancestral memory may be biologically reposited in the genetic code of our DNA; [17 and, of course, culminating with his 1985 novel Contact, that was posthumously released ...

472. Predicting the Past [Aeon Journal $]
... past civilizations and threaten our present one. Experts in the field of dendrochronology have concluded that tree-ring data show steep environmental downturns within historical times, and that these events seem to be tied to celestial phenomena. The present work is a summation of Roger Wescott's thoughts regarding mythology, human prehistory, and catastrophism. Not only are the ideas presented in this work incendiary; they are also educative. But, beyond its considerable value for enlightenment, entertainment, and education, this book is also a tool of therapy. Wescott is, ... every possible sense, reminding us of something we have lost and forgotten. As a cultural archaeologist, Wescott unearths and reassembles shards of memory that still persist in our languages, institutions, and myths. What is more, he surveys our prospects for revivifying at least some portion of our primordial wholeness.

... Myth, Science and Prehistory by Roger Williams Wescott by Roger Williams Wescott, Kronos Press, 2000 Reviewed by Jill Abery This book was advertised in C&CR 2001:1, p. 33 (with purchasing details) as a summation of Roger Wescott's thoughts regarding mythology, human prehistory and catastrophism. For those unacquainted with Wescott's work it remains to be said that he spent his working life mainly in the field of linguistics and his many publications come with a deserved authority in this discipline. In less orthodox fields he was an ... the behaviour of mankind and possible remedies for our self-destructive tendencies. The book is divided into many small sections which, while never truly independent, could be dipped into as separate essays. While considering the evidence for catastrophes during prehistory (especially the linguistic aspects of the myths of catastrophe) he builds up his own picture of the Golden Age and how it catastrophically came to an end. To a large extent his ideas go beyond those of Velikovsky and are probably more fantastical. I found many of them a little difficult to accept ...

... encompasses methodologies characterizing almost all disciplines. Astrophysics and cosmology emerge as tight little islands of self-cantered thought, joined by many of the other hard sciences, such as mathematics, nuclear physics, and thermodynamics, including the so-called soft sciences, as history, psychology, and mythology. The selfsame arguments used by the Darwinists against its own critics since 1859 have been identical in form and substance, and equally well-rehearsed, to those actually impartially applied against critical scholars, as the "pseudo-scientist" Immanuel Velikovsky, the astronomer-in-exile Halton Arp, the ... conceived of as objective in principle but its practitioners tend to be highly subjective. This being one of the wonders of the bicameral mind. One can nevertheless rest assured that these same repetitious polemics will be resurrected time and again to defend against any and all apparent inimical mythological or other "non-scientific" incursions into entrenched historical or established geological or paleontological scenarios. I highly recommend more than a perfunctory reading of Johnson-- a scientifically literate academic lawyer (a la Charles Lyell, who later became a renowned geologist as well as a ...

... of a 1962 paper on schizophrenia published by Dr. John W. Perry in the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences. Much to his "considerable amazement", Campbell 'learned on reading it, that the imagery of schizophrenic fantasy perfectly matches that of the mythological hero journey, which he had outlined and elucidated back in 1949, in "The Hero with a Thousand Faces". (Campbell: "Myths to Live by"). The scheme is, that the "Prince", the Ego, has to ... out into the "wilderness" or the Woods, where he will have to solve riddles, or to fight against monsters in order to find, in the end, the "princess' in her glass palace or the fountain top, or hidden behind a thorn-hedge, where she must patiently await his coming, without any possibility of helping him along. In the same way our "female half" within us can do NOTHING to bring our male-half, our "rational brain", come to understanding on equal grounds with our ...

UK. About Workshop The SIS was founded in 1974 in response to a growing interest in the works of modern catastrophists, notably the highly controversial Dr Immanuel Velikovsky. In his books Worlds in Collision, Earth in Upheaval and Ages in Chaos he argued that the ancient myths and sources such as the Bible contained records of planetary catastrophes in the Earth s history and, based on this, he suggested that geology, cosmology and ancient history should be reconsidered. In cosmology he proposed that electricity played a much larger role than in ...

It's most useful for someone wishing to get a general sense of the entire Gilgamesh tradition of texts (or more accurately tablets) as a whole. More accurate (and also more recent) is the World's Classics Myths from Mesopotamia: Creation, the Flood, Gilgamesh and Others, trans. Stephanie Dalley (Oxford, 1988). It's also in paperback, and it would be my preferred translation. You can feel fairly confident that Dalley has presented an accurate text, with ...

... and were supposed to exhibit their traits. Plato further argued that the planets and stars were huge, and he insisted that the gods were among the planets and not upon Olympus.(5) The modern practice of arbitrarily labeling new objects of the sky from Greek mythology has obscured the sacredness of the ancient belief in the union of astral bodies with divine personages. If any distinction between the planet and god were required, it would relate, as Taylor put it, to "the planet Jupiter, who being a mundane divinity ... could produce and systematically employ such a telescope. Paleo-anthropology and archaeology, overseen by the sociology of invention, do not admit of a specific technology that far exceeds the general level of its culture. Then, if it had existed, the destroyed civilization would have inspired myths of some essential correctness within the survivors' theology. Alternatively, and straining credulity even more, would occur the idea that at one time within the transmitted memory of mankind, the Earth, Jupiter and Saturn moved on orbits differing from their present ones and much ...
