21. Thoth Vol. IV, No 15 Oct 15, 2000 [Thoth Website]
... in the tail of Venus) grow saw-toothed edges and make a tumultuous noise. (That last is the ancient Egyptian scribe Ipuwer's jargon: "Oh that the Earth would cease from noise and tumult be no more.") Then the sawteeth develop into strings of triangles, ladder shapes, and stacks of donuts. Several well-known mythologists in attendance jumped up shouting and pointing: "The dragon! The arrows! The ladder of heaven! The backbone of the sky!" Ev fired up his laptop and opened his collection of petroglyph files. There, carved into rock walls in unmistakable detail by ancient artists, were Peratt's instabilities. For three or four or ten thousand years, no human eye has seen them. Not until Tony Peratt put cathode to anode, as shown in his publications, has there been a referent in nature for the images borne by the rocks throughout millennia. The ancients saw all the instabilities. They heard them. The discharge lasts a billionth of a second in the lab. Plasma scientists, scaling up the spark to interplanetary ...

... strive to make sense of experiences, and artists all over the world have preserved human experiences scientists have ignored. The conventional scientist asks, what does a mere artist know? Especially an artist or storyteller who lived before the great scientific paradigm shifts of Copernicus, Galileo, Newton? For the modern day catastrophist, the many forms of ancient art are treasure chests of unsorted jewels. How could ancient Greek sculptors carve thunderbolts in the hands of the planetary gods which look like the plasmoids in Australian lightning labs? How could the ancient petroglyph artists carving on rock with tools of rock record the same forms all around the world? How could ancient storytellers compose epic poems that tell the same global tale? Equally important is the question, where will interdisciplinary studies lead tomorrow? I caught a glimpse of a possible answer at the conference in Laughlin. Among the participants was a band called "The Sedona Players". The musicians set up keyboards, drum machines and a harp in the corner and added delightful background music between sessions. It's not the sort of thing ...

... features of space age data directly, unitarily, coherently, and concisely. Furthermore, it explains ancient descriptions and depictions of high-energy events within the Solar system. And it promises to shed light on the geological data assembled by S. Warren Carey that suggests the Earth is or was expanding. Plus, it can go beyond the astronomical extrapolation of mathematical formulas that must be taken on faith (how can you test a black hole?): Plasma phenomena can be generated and tested in labs --jets, toruses, spiral arms, petroglyph forms, myth themes (Axis Mundi, Columns of Shu), formation of planetary systems. The lab investigation in turn reflects back on petroglyphs and myth themes to enable a diachronic sequencing and a synchronic locating of events.

... dating can be resolved. Gods may then appear in different guises. They will become, like Vishnu and Buddha, gods with several incarnations each. So Quetzalcoatl may have appeared very early in time, but you will just have to factor in a number of encores. Figure 80 Figure 80 is my depiction of petroglyphs found in Utah. Their dates of origin are unknown. Spatter-like objects appear in 80a and b. Figure 81 Figure 82 Figure 83 Figure 81 is my rendition of a section taken from a photograph of another undated petroglyph, from New Mexico: a cross encircled by dots. It resembles a spatter. (7) Figure 82 is my depiction of the birth of Quetzalcoatl, along with that of other gods, from a configuration that resembles a "Great Mother." Spatter elementals appear in the birthing area. I believe that this depiction looks Saturnian and am sure it will provide fuel for future debates on the nature or identity of Quetzaicoatl. Figure 83 is my sketch of a statue of the Buddha. There is a spatter at the ...
26. Stairway to Heaven [Aeon Journal $]
... convince the reader that an abstract concept like the polar axis could never account for the rich imagery to be found in these myths of a hero's ascent along a celestial staircase. Rather than an invisible theoretical construct like the polar axis, it seems clear that the ancients had a more substantive image in mind when they spoke of a ladder spanning the heavens and serving as a road to the sacred homeland of the ancient sun-god. The polar column as a ladder, or stairway, leading to the primeval Saturnian sun. (From a petroglyph near the San Marcos Pass in California.) If we approach the mythology surrounding the celestial staircase from the vantage point of the Saturn thesis, it will be found that each and every theme is readily explainable. According to that thesis, the planets Saturn, Venus and Mars were once involved in a unique configuration, all of the planets sharing a common axis of rotation together with the Earth, with Saturn residing in the furthest "North," and the much smaller Venus and Mars orbiting between the gas giant and Earth ...

In addition, a written Chinese description of such a distinctive plant dates from AD300. A Chinese researcher has found 56 matching sets of engraved characters in both the Americas and China. Petroglyphs in Petroglyph Provincial Park in North America appear to resemble symbols used in northern Europe around 800 BC and one depicts a Viking-like ship similar to one carved in Sweden. The Canadian Arctic has stone towers and standing stones which appear to be neither of Eskimo or Viking origin but are similar to stone structures on northern Scottish islands. A blood borne retrovirus found among the populace of southern Japan is also found in some isolated groups in Columbia and Chile and researchers have now found traces of viral DNA in a mummy from the Atacama desert from 1200-1500 ...

... ) The only other people in the world who match this high 12% level are the Uto/Aztecan Pima/Papago people of Utah and Southwest USA (12.5%). In fact HLA B-21 is virtually absent in other indigenous American populations. A people known as the Fremont inhabited the Southwest of USA, (specifically Utah), c. 400-950 AD. Analysis of Fremont skeletons has shown the Fremont people to be related to the present-day Pima/Papago. If one also considers the apparent Egyptian iconography that appears at Fremont petroglyph sites such as those at Rochester Creek, Utah and also other correspondences between Berber and Fremont, such as irrigation, housing, face markings, etc., one can begin to trace a possible link between the North African Berber and the New World Fremont. Berber Tifinagh inscriptions have also been found in parts of Utah. Even so, there seems to be insufficient evidence for an actual 'trade network' between North Africa and the New World. As far as Atlantic crossings are concerned, we seem to be dealing with migration ...

[146 THE CELESTIAL LADDER AND RELATED FORMS Figure 16 Petroglyphs from India showing pillar with "sun." Figure 17 American Indian pictograph showing Saturnian enclosure on top of serpentine axis. Figure 18 Petroglyphs from Ilkley, Yorkshire, England, showing variations of the heavenly ladder as the axis of the Saturnian configuration. Figure 19 The polar column as a ladder, or stairway, Leading to the primeval Saturnian sun. (From a petroglyph near the San Marcos Pass in California.) As Talbott and I have documented, the form of the axis mundi evolved during the history of the polar configuration. In addition to presenting a pillar-like form or universalis columna, as in Figure 16, a closely related phase saw the axis mundi assuming a spiraling form, commonly interpreted as an undulating serpent or rope stretching across the sky. Figure 17 illustrates an example of this latter scenario. The axis mundi elsewhere presented a ladder-like form. Figure 18 depicts an example of this ...
