311. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... was highly respectful of state boundaries. Maybe this is something of an exaggeration but the impression is there. In Heinsohn's ancient world, this imperial progress over 3000 years seems to be compressed into little over 1000 years and is transformed into a ferment of development and ideas travelling freely across frontiers, with Egyptians, Greeks, Assyrians and the under-rated Persians, Chinese and Indians all contributing and learning from one another. No doubt the Rumanians and others were also involved, even if they didn't leave us as many books about it. If we think about the 1000 years of development which have led to the present day, the picture is familiar: from Marco Polo's import of Chinese knowledge ...

... palaces about 1700 BC. 4. Climate and Economic Activity' in The Middle East and North Africa 1986, (32nd Edition, Europa Publications Ltd), p. 418. Information regarding climate can also be gleaned from the Assyriological books, for example: Seton Lloyd: The Archaeology of Mesopotamia, from the Old Stone Age to the Persian Conquest, (revised edition, Thames & Hudson, 1984), pp. 17 climate and irrigation' and 19 Northern Iraq' 5.

... the synchronisms between them. In the Old World - the only hemisphere that created fully fledged histories of its own - synchronisms involving all three continents can be established for the 6th century BC, but no earlier. The reason for this is that the first tri-continental polity, comprising portions of Europe, Asia, and Africa, was the Achaemenid Persian Empire of that century. (The first bi-continental polity, comprising portions of Asia and Africa, was probably the Assyrian Empire of Esarhaddon and others in the 7th century BC*.) [* Although conventional scholarship currently dates the bi-continental empire of New Kingdom Egypt to the 2nd millennium BC, Gunnar Heinsohn of the University of Bremen has ...

315. Chapter VIII: the Earliest Solar Shrines in Egypt [Books]
... that which is made endure!" This desire of a great king which has come down to us through the leathern roll now preserved at Berlin, has not been fulfilled; for of his magnificent structure, built for all eternity, nothing remains but the obelisk we have seen, and a few blocks of stone scarcely worth mentioning. The Persian Cambyses is unjustly accused of having destroyed the temple and city of the sun, for the city was minutely described in detail long after his time, and the temple was still flourishing; nay, many remains of the sanctuary, that have now long since vanished, were described even by Arab authors.- Ebers, "Egypt, ...
316. The Ruins Of The East. Ch.12 The Ruins Of The East (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... Europe, changes of climate have caused, as it appears, transformations in the occupation and economy of the countries." 7 The catastrophe that served as the starting point for two of my works, Worlds in Collision and Ages in Chaos, left archaeological imprints on biblical and Homeric lands, from the Dardanelles to the Caucasian barrier, the Persian highland, and the cataracts of the Nile. The most severe and devastating upheaval took place exactly at the end of the Middle Kingdom in Egypt, as claimed in these two books. What was the nature of the perturbations that caused the end of the old Bronze Age and then of the Middle Bronze Age, and changed the entire ...

... being asserted by some that the Greeks made the whole thing up. This was because no evidence of a Median Empire was found in the Iron Age strata, where it was expected. But if the Medes were the Bronze Age Mitanni then the problem is answered. More recently, archaeologists have now come to doubt the existence even of the Persian Empire for the same reason. (Gunnar Heinsohn talks about this in some detail in Wer Herrschte Im Industal?). It's the same in the Greek world. The city of Mycenae for example, and the opulent burials in the Shaft Graves could not be identified with the dynasty of Atreus because cross-dating with Egypt showed these to be ...
319. Chapter I: The Worship of the Sun and the Dawn [Books]
... in which we can study the first beginnings of our language and of everything which is embodied in all the languages under the sun." The oldest, most primitive, most simple form of Aryan Nature-worship finds expression in this wonderful hymnal, which doubtless brings before us the rituals of the ancient Aryan populations, represented also by the Medes and Persians. There was, however, another branch, represented by the Zend-Avesta, as opposed to the Vedas, among which there was a more or less- conscious opposition to the gods of Nature, to which we are about to refer, and a striving after a more spiritual deity, proclaimed by Zoroaster under the name of Ahura-Mazda, ...

... question and we are so far away, in the event of hostilities, these fields, and the developments financed with American capital, would not only be beyond the reach of American forces, but would be an invaluable prize for the Russian forces. From the Russian frontier to the fields of Iraq it is only 215 miles, to the Persian Gulf about 550 miles, and to the Bahrein fields about 750 miles; from the Bahrein fields to London it is 6,700 miles and to New York 8,560 miles by the sea route through the Suez Canal and much more around the Cape of Good Hope. It is well to remember that in the last war the ...
