... equal to the area of Trafalgar Square. Three constituents of this Temple are of especial importance: the Portal', the monumental eastern entrance to the temple; the Balcony', a peculiar, and significant, extension of the western wall of the temple; and, most important of all, the monolithic Gateway', which was obviously originally prominently placed near the centre of the temple. (Diagram 2.) This gateway was cut out of a slab of greenish-grey andesite, an igneous rock of great hardness. It is about 10 feet high by 122 feet wide, and 12 feet thick, and weighs about ten tons. This gateway is not only a magnificent example ...

... Catastrophe, Collective Trauma, and the Origin of Civilization Richard Heinberg If we consider mankind as a whole and substitute it for a single individual, we discover that it too has developed delusions which are inaccessible to logical criticism and which contradict reality. Investigation leads us to the same explanation as in the case of the single individual. They owe their power to the element of historical truth which they have brought up from the repression of the forgotten and primeval past. -SIGMUND FREUD Our society is made up of vast numbers of traumatized individuals, and our culture has come into being through a universally traumatizing process. The outcome -today's technological civilization with its massive psychopathologies and unending ecological disasters ...

... like a comet", due to an unusual optical phenomenon caused by conditions in Earth's atmosphere. Obviously there was nothing unscientific about Velikovsky noting that the ancients referred to Venus as a comet; however, the reaction of scientists was unfounded. As we shall see, this was not the only case where this happened relative to Velikovsky's work. ORIGIN OF COMETS Dr. S. K. Vseklisvyatski is a noted Russian astronomer who is the director of the Kiev Observatory. For a number of years he has investigated comet properties and orbits. He concludes that comets originate in or near the giant planets, particularly Jupiter. His work is generally ignored in the United States since it does ...

94. The Crescent II [Books]
... Tiki floated in a canoe. (10) The Hawaiian god Tanaroa sailed above in a "flying canoe," (11) much like the great shaman of the Yenisei Ostiaks, who "rows his boat in heaven." The legendary Hiawatha navigated "a white canoe which moved without human aid." (12) That the original form of the sun-god's ship was a crescent is a fact disputed by no one. The crescent form prevails in Egypt, Mesopotamia, Persia, India, Greece, Scandinavia, and even in the Americas, leading to the popular belief that the mythical sun voyages in the "ship of the new moon." This opinion is due ...

... SIS SPRING MEETING, 9th April 1983 Homo Schizo- the Catastrophic Evolution of Man Prof. Alfred de Grazia Introduction by Brian Moore: Dr de Grazia is extremely veil known to all of you as a very prolific writer and a highly original thinker in the field of catastrophism, particularly with his new book Chaos and Creation which has recently been published and which is downstairs now on our bookstand. He is a sometime professor of political science at New York University, founder-editor of the American Behavioral Scientist, one issue of which was the basis of The Velikovsky Affair. He is currently working on an immense series of books, it seems to me, on Catastrophism or Quantavolution, ...

96. Morning Star* [Journals] [Aeon]
... belief that, according to one critic, was "asserted by Velikovsky and pressed more recently by Cardona," (1 ) is still being challenged. This belief has been called a "big lie that drastically oversimplifies ancient religion." "According to A. B. Cook," this critic continues, "Zeus and Kronos were originally general sky gods whose nature underwent a long evolution with their names becoming associated with planets at a late date." So often has this allegation been made that I am growing tired of having to counteract it. In various publications, I have repeatedly demonstrated how, among the Greeks, the gods' identity with the planets was forgotten ...

... reality of Plato's Atlantis, wrote in his 1883 book, Ragnarok: The Age of Fire and Gravel, of a supposed close encounter between the Earth and a comet, traces being left behind in the form of gravel deposits [5 : pp. 123-125]. At this time there was little astronomical or geological evidence for catastrophes of extraterrestrial origin. The existence of comets was of course known, but they did not seem to pose a physical threat to the Earth, as far as could be ascertained from two centuries of scientific observation. This view of comets as innocuous celestial objects was reinforced when Comet Biela began to disintegrate in 1846, producing an impressive display of shooting stars ...

... the development and evolution of this particular symbiotic relationship? Certainly it seems highly unlikely that an ancestral honeyguide suddenly appeared one day with a new mutation in its genome which compelled it to seek out a friendly benefactor resilient enough to conquer a colony of angry bees. Fortuitous mutations of this sort- frequently invoked in conventional interpretations with regard to the origin of structural modifications- seem more than a little far-fetched when attempting to account for the evolution of complex behaviors. Despite decades of experimentation, moreover, no mutation has yet been observed to give rise to a new behavioral pattern, only to pathological distortions of already existing behaviors. (8 ) A more realistic approach would take its cue ...

... From: Aeon IV:2 (Aug 1995) Home | Issue Contents The Origin Of Language James E. Strickling ANIMAL COMMUNICATION "Communication" is a general term employed in ion and receipt of some stimulus or message. In relation to animal life, it can involve the transmission of information from one animal to another, or the mere recognition of an animate or inanimate object. Animals can communicate a variety of messages. These include fear, hunger, sexual receptiveness, status, presence of an intruder, etc. Such communication, however, does not imply thought. Methods, mechanisms, and potentials of communication are functions of neurological complexity, (1 ) but thought ...
