11. Prediction #5: Plasma Formations in the Ancient Sky [Thunderbolts Website]
... on-site study he used GPS longitude and latitude positions, always noting the orientation and field of view. A team of about 30 volunteers, including specialists from several fields, assisted Peratt in the investigation, and he has since gathered more than 25,000 rock art images. The illustrations of one interesting formation — the “squatter man” shown above --are taken from Peratt's recent paper in "Transactions on Plasma Science" of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, in December 2003. Peratt states his conclusion forthrightly: The recurring petroglyph patterns "are reproductions of plasma phenomena in space". Peratt ’ s findings are particularly significant in their contrast to traditional explanations of rock art. The majority of rock art authorities, particularly those with primary interest in Native American sources, argue that only images of the sun, moon, and stars reflect actual celestial phenomena. Apart from such associations, most authorities claim that global patterns do not exist. Rather, they tell us, the ancient artists projected onto stone the subjective content of shamanistic trances. Peratt ’ s ...

... further the image represented in Figure 4.8 How is it possible to explain the wheel-like "spokes" (typically four or eight in number) of this supposed solar-petroglyph by reference to the current sun?9 And yet this very image occurs throughout the ancient world! Most perplexing, perhaps, is the fact that such images occur in Neolithic contexts and thus predate by several millennia the invention of spoked wheels. Figure 4 Figure 5, finally, adds a pillar-like appendage to the aforementioned images. 10 Here again we are dealing with a petroglyph of universal distribution, typically interpreted as the sun with "rays". Figure 5 Although the various "sun-images" occur in a wide variety of artistic contexts, it is not uncommon to find them associated with scenes of apparent worship and ritual. Well known, for example, are engravings depicting people offering salutations to the sun-god with upraised arms. In Camonica Valley, arguably the richest and most thoroughly excavated petroglyph site in the world, Anati observes: "The carvings of the first period are limited to the depiction of ...

... crown round his head and a throne round his body, as his garment, and so forth. The solar explanation of the imagery can forever be abandoned once we become aware that this selfsame enclosed deity is very often placed on a pedestal, such as in this picture. What do such pedestals represent? The natural sun has nothing to offer that would give rise to such imagery, yet the language of mythology leaves no doubt that this is the cosmic mountain which supports heaven and the sky god himself. This picture is a petroglyph found in southern Scandinavia. Frame 4 of 7. The above symbol is a traditional representation of the lightning. Apparently, the phenomenon of lightning that we are accustomed to in our natural world would hardly inspire such imagery. Yet the shown picture represents a very widespread stylisation of the lightning, which is found in ancient Mesopotamia, Greece and Rome, India, and even Mexico. Clearly our distant forebears were referring to some other phenomenon than the ordinary lightning, which was onsidered to be the prototype of lightning. Analyses of ...

... . Fig. 19 Helen and the Dioscuri Fig. 20 Helen (with crown) Fig. 21 Helen kidnapped and taken to Troy Earlier versions of Helen suggest this ruse. Fig. 19 shows a wedge-shaped Helen appearing trismatically between the Dioscuri. Even earlier in fig. 20, she appears with crowned head looking somewhat like Olive Oyl. In fig. 21 she is kidnapped and taken aboard ship to Troy. Helen does not seem her best, looking more like wedge than woman. 5. The Entering Wedge Fig. 22 Petroglyph from Utah Fig. 22 is a petroglyph from Utah that authorities nervously date to post 11th century AD. Look how it resembles fig. 20! In both, a wedge shaped horned entity grasps a ring from which flow chevron-like waves. Moreover, to the right of each entity is a span or arch of similar style. How can cultural diffusion explain this link? The pictures are centuries and miles apart, as is their subject matter. Fig. 23 Bowl from Etruria Fig. 24 Wedges on shields Fig. 25 ...

... and shield resemble our configuration's interior- but where does the boat come from? At the bottom of the configuration, note that the field lines flare out in both directions. This flaring appears in the depiction of many other deities, giving their lower limbs a serpentine or eel-like look and giving them their anguilloform classification amongst mythologists. However if you connect each end of this bottom limb, a boat-like form appears. Fig. 17 [47 shows two typical anguilloforms along with our wheat boat. Art Fig. 18 [48: petroglyph from Lyaconia in Turkey showing what seems to be an army of our archetypes. Note the winged discs above.____ Fig. 18 Turkish petroglyph showing archetypical forms and winged disks Fig. 19 [49: rock art from Korea (undated) showing connected hyperboloids. Such connections suggest that magnetic fields somehow link up. At the intersection of these links, interesting forms seem to appear.____ Fig. 19 Rock art from Korea showing linked hyperboloids Fig. 20 Neolithic cliff paintings from Spain showing ...
17. A Conversation with Barry Fell [Horus $]
... of Celtic language, writing, astronomy and Christian culture in ancient North America long before the arrival of Columbus. Dr. Barry Fell and his Wife, Rene; San Diego, 1985 A similar example was photographed for a recent educational television documentary, "History on the Rocks", which highlights some of the archaeological evidence for pre-Columbian transoceanic visitors. In a small cave in Oklahoma, Sunrise rays on the cardinal day cast a pattern into the cave, bathing a correspondingly patterned inscription in its light. As with the West Virginia petroglyph, the inscription referred to the event. Over the years Dr. Fell has amassed a large amount of linguistic and other archaeological evidence pointing to the presence not only of the Celts, but of other ancient cultures as well. Many others since have joined the research and have forged firm links between ancient scripts and artifacts found in the Americas and those from across the seas. The evidence for widespread trade and colonization by ancient mariners reaches back centuries before the Christian Era according to Dr. Fell and his colleagues. Clearly, ...
18. The Saturn Problem [SIS C&C Review $]
... Carnac Plage, we saw a lunar halo, this time an egg-shaped band of light surrounding the disc. That was the first and last time I have ever seen such a thing- but seeing, as they say, is believing. While more complex than a simple circular halo, the example I saw at Carnac was still relatively simple. For the more elaborate, even fantastic configurations, that solar haloes can suggest to the observer, there are many interesting engravings from Renaissance times [2. Figure 1 Comparison of a typical petroglyph with a simple solar halo Figure 2 Combining a rayed sun with a simple solar halo, resulting is a solar wheel Fig. 3. Renaissance print showing a rayed Sun surrounded by solar halo, as seen at Nürnberg on the 2nd May, 1556 At the conference, and echoing the thoughts from a previously published paper [3, Ev expressed his surprise that 'one of the most common images in all of ancient rock art' shows the Sun as an orb surrounded by a circular disc. The Egyptian hieroglyph for Ra the ...

... means of a pole, ladder, tree, or cord. (95) In more than one culture, the climbing pole is addressed as the "road to the sky." (96) Shamash rising over the Twin Mountain. (From a Mesoptomian seal.) The polar column as a ladder, or stairway, leading to the "sun." Note the central orb in the center of the "sun," indicating that it is not the present "sun" that is being depicted. (From a petroglyph near the San Marcos Pass in California.) As Eliade and others have documented, such rites have as their express purpose an attempt to recreate the conditions which once prevailed during the Golden Age, when a pillar to the sky actually existed and communication between the two worlds was possible. Eliade's summary of these rites is as follows: "If we try to achieve a general view of all the myths and rites just briefly reviewed, we are struck by the fact that they have a dominant idea in common: communication between ...
20. Thoth Vol. V, No 3 Feb 28, 2001 [Thoth Website]
... Electrically active plasmas behave as though they were alive. They self- organize into complex forms that twist and turn and change states. They're mathematically messy. They're anarchic. But they're conceptually elegant. The theory of gravity is surprised by each new discovery of space probes and space telescopes. Each surprise has to be patched with another ad hoc excuse. EPP accounts for the many surprising features of the cosmos with a single coherent theory. It can often point to a lab demonstration or to a computer simulation --or even to an ancient petroglyph!--that mimics the newly discovered form. What EPP may lack in mathematical elegance is more than made up for in generality. The Age of Gravitational Mechanics has achieved many impressive feats: It's taken people to the Moon. It's sent a robot to Mars. It's put satellites into orbit around Venus and Jupiter and Eros. It's put SOHO into orbit around nothing more than a mathematical point. It's also discovered the data and collected the facts that require a new, larger theory to explain them. So the time has come ...
