41. The Cosmic Double Helix [Journals] [Aeon]
... In the triad of myth, ritual, and iconography, the latter can perhaps be regarded as the purest and least distorted of the three, at least insofar as abstracticonography is meant. This is because abstract traditional images have managed to steer clear of symbolism, testifying in the most direct manner to the archetype that was actually observed. Abstract petroglyphs and images on early seals and pottery depict columns and circles with no explicit symbolical meaning. In the minds of the artists they may have represented serpents, pillars, trees, suns or wombs, but the symbols are not explicit in the pictures we are left with today. These pictures therefore constitute a most valuable class of data for ...

43. The Milky Way [Journals] [Aeon]
... 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: ...
... feet wide and nearly ten feet high. The interior walls are well covered with large painted figures while upon the ceilings are numerous forms of animals, birds, and insects. Among this latter group is a white cross about 18 inches in length (fig. 323), presenting aunique appearance, for the reason that it is the only petroglyph in that region to which tile white emdoring matter has been applied. An interesting example of rock sculpturing in groups is in Owens Valley, south of Benton, Cal. Among them are various forms of crosses, and circles containing crosses of simple and complex types. The most interesting in this connection are the groups in fig. 324 ...
45. Thoth Vol IV, No. 1: Jan 15, 2000 [Journals] [Thoth]
... a constantly whirling crucible... ' Talbott, of course, also recognized this fact when he wrote that the cosmic mountain in many creation epics is presented as a churning, serpentine column rising along the world axis... ' . . . it is more than obvious from descriptions of the Saturnian axis, as well as prehistoric Petroglyphs, that the polar column was a visible entity rather than a deduced abstraction. This was so much so that, in some cases, the axis was even pictured as a ladder reaching to the Saturnian sun. Amy: Cardona mentioned that he finds it difficult to reconcile a the whirling motion of the axis with Suhr's interpretation of the ...
46. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 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 ...
47. The Revelation of John (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... in No. 8. Sometimes no chances are taken and the firmament is drawn upon the crossbeams (Nos. 9 and 10), a suggestion which it evidently followed, for there have been no complaints since the making of the new roof of our world! The protective heaven-propping quality of the cross' is most graphically expressed in the petroglyphs, Nos. 11 and 12, which have been found in North Africa. They show the upright corner posts, the crossbeams, the heavenly vault resting securely on these structures, and the cosmic serpent raging, powerlessly, above. Incidentally, some cross forms are used as race signs, as fire symbols, as solar symbols, ...
48. Day Star [Journals] [Aeon]
... a solar "eye" abound in ancient myth and folklore. The second image in Figure One depicts what appears to be an eight-pointed star set upon the face of the "sun." The third image, finally, depicts a flower-like object set upon the face of the "sun." Hawaiian native engraving "sun" -symbol petroglyphs on smooth lava pavement. Such "sun" -symbols are to be found all over the world. (Illustration by Y. S. Green.) Considered in isolation, and without reference to the evidence from ancient language and myth, such pictures must seem abstract in nature or the product of fantasy. Yet the strange fact ...
49. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the sky and could well have blotted out the comparatively dim light of the moon, the stars, and even the sun. The spectacular events transpiring in that alien sky' inspired many defining forms of religion, art, and architecture, the remnants of which are still with us today. They were faithfully recorded on stone in thousands of petroglyphs all over the world, enacted in thousands of rituals celebrated until the present day, and narrated in thousands of myths now baffling scholars and laymen alike. The cause of this enhanced aurora has yet to be determined, but promising candidates are extreme solar weather, passage through a gigantic molecular cloud, the disintegration of a giant comet in ...

... op cit. Figure 2 ( a and b) depict a basic Lichtenberg figure. Note the dendritic rays emanating from its center. This figure is on the top of page 71. Figure 3 shows a variation and appears on page 205. Figure 4 is another variation and appears on page 209. It shows a special affinity to some petroglyphic depictions. Figure 5 (page 204) is most like the form that I've named the spatter, a form that commonly appears in reIigious and mythological art.
