41. On testing The Polar configuration [Journals] [Aeon]
... rests squarely in the center of a wheel-like band; is situated at the juncture of four radiating streams of light; occupies the summit of a celestial column. The first and most obvious implication of such a model, if valid, is that familiar ancient images of the "sun" (such as the enclosed sun and sun-cross ) actually originated not at as distorted or unusual perceptions of the solar orb, but as accurate drawings of the polar Saturn and its habitat. The model thus predicts- 1. The ancient sun god was the planet Saturn. The Sumerian Ningirsu, the planet Saturn,"comes forth in terrifying splendor. In the land it becomes day." ...

... Akkadian language is not "so called"- at least not if Heinsohn wishes to give the impression that it is "so-called" by modern historians. As we have already seen, the Akkadian language was called Akkadian by both the Babylonians and the Assyrians. The first thing that comes to mind, therefore, is this: If Akkadian originated with the Assyrians, as Heinsohn claims, why was it called Akkadian? More importantly, there is a difference between the Akkadian used by the Assyrians and that attributed to the Akkadians themselves. As Bernard Newgrosh recently pointed out to me,(5 ) cuneiformists can easily recognise old Akkadian even before it is translated since the style and ...

... view that the flies of plague 4 were actually dumped on the earth by the Venus Comet, having been "carried in its trailing atmosphere in the form of larvae." They were thus "not merely the earthly brood, swarming in heat like other vermin, but guests from another planet." Plague 3 might have been of similar origin, but if it was, V doesn't specifically say so. Next, as the earth plunged even deeper into the tail of the comet, the earth's rotation was disturbed and great hurricanes whipped up clouds of cometary dust and cinders so that the light of day was blotted out. Hence plague number 9, the plague of darkness. ...

... etc.) are used unquoted. Such conventional use implies nothing as to their real significance, however, but merely the type of a certain representation or design. Drawings in the text correlate the various representations of costumes, headdresses, ornaments, plants, altars, symbols, weapons, etc. The descriptions and drawings were made from the originals, as small details, especially on worn surfaces, may not appear in the impressions, yet often remain visible on the stones themselves. The designs in the plates were all reproduced from impressions. The choice of beginnings and ends of designs, as here published, may in some instances be challenged. The seals through No. 626 ...

... said to have come into being. (6 ) A bizarre elaboration comes to us from an incantation intoned by the Bon of ancient Tibet. Bereft of its grotesqueness, the invocation tells of the formation of an egg which burst open "by its own innate force from the celestial womb," out of which the "physical universe" originated. (7 ) The same motif is also to be found in the dark reaches of Africa. Thus, the "original darkness," the "egg of the world," and the god Amma contained within it, have continued to play prominent roles in the ceremonies of the Dogon down into modern times. (8 ) ...

47. Sandal-straps and Semiology [Books] [de Grazia books]
... From: The Burning of Troy, by Alfred De Grazia Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER SIXTEEN Sandal-straps and Semiology The neophyte comes upon the word "catastrophe" and feels proud to discover within it the Greek words kata (down) and aster (star), so "failing stars" is heralded as the origin of the word. Not so, say our betters: the Greek words within it are kata and strophe (turning) and refer to that part of an ancient drama in which occurs the denouement; the plot, having reached its culmination, descends, often precipitously. In a plea for the innocents, I would suggest that what we know of Greek etymology ...

When it became clear that the Barringer Crater could be of meteoritic origin, a search for other possible meteoritic structures was started all over the world. As our planet presents thousands of natural bowl-shaped features of varying size which, at first sight, could easily be taken for impact craters, geology established strict criteria for the determination of structures of meteoritic origin. A crater was only to be accepted as being ...

In another multi-author book, Perspectives on Evolution, John Campbell, of the University of California, Los Angeles, looked back to 1959, the centenary of the publication of On The Origin of Species, and commented: "The uniformity of outlook and sense of achievement in 1959 contrasts markedly with the multiplicity of views and sense of anticipation in today's volume. Obviously, 1959 marked a culmination; but what was it, and what has rejuvenated evolutionary studies since then?" [10: p. 190]. There ...

... homeland." The local mountain took its mythical attributes from the cosmic peak. Always the sacred mount rises "higher than any mountain on earth," attaining the polar centre and functioning as the cosmic axis. Legends of the heaven-sustaining peak say that the creator- the central sun- ruled his kingdom from the mountaintop, where stood the original paradise with its four life-bearing streams. Egypt According to the long-standing belief of Egyptologists, the sun-god rises over the eastern horizon each morning and sinks below the western horizon each evening. In widely accepted translations of the texts, one repeatedly finds such wording as "horizon from which Re goes forth," (1 ) "Thou living ...
