231. The Coming Cosmic Debate in the Sciences and Humanities: Revolutionary Vs. Evolutionary Primevology [Articles]
... The Coming Cosmic Debate in the Sciences and Humanities: Revolutionary Vs. Evolutionary Primevology Alfred De Grazia No doubt the title of my lecture is unclear. Perhaps you are satisfied for tile moment that you understand what I mean by "the sciences and humanities," that is, all fields of knowledge like physics and history. But, in regard to the word "cosmic", three meanings occur, all of which are correct in some measure. First, as I have implied, it is cosmic in that all fields of knowledge are involved. Second, I must have reference to something of great importance, else why call it cosmic"? Third, the subject ...
... for "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered." Further, the respectable British journal, New Scientist, published a paper urging the community of scientists to take a hard look at Velikovsky's work.  The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists had published in 1964 an article that ridiculed Velikovsky and his supporters . In 1975 a professor of physics published in that journal an article entitled "Velikovsky: Paradigms in Collision" , in which the possibility was left open that Velikovsky might be correct. This was apparently a very different atmosphere from the virtually monolithic opposition to Velikovsky in academe 64 in the 1950s and the heated battle between critics and supporters during the 1960s. ...
233. A Catastrophist Reading of Religious Systems [Journals] [SIS Review]
... see cosmology as dealing with how we think the Universe is structured and functions, whereas religion is concerned to discover the fundamental meaning behind the structure. Both, however, try to tell us how to behave so that we can relate successfully to the cosmos or the divine. In our modern culture, we have called religion metaphysics and cosmology physics, by which we indicate that we believe religion is given by intuition, inspiration and revelation, whereas cosmology is given by nature. In both instances, nevertheless, we are considered to be passive recorders of the data which reaches us from the divine or the cosmos, and we have no control over this information or its sources. ...
234. Letters To The Edttor [Journals] [Aeon]
... (3 ) that the orientation of the Earth's axis precesses so that it always is at a 45 degree angle relative to a radial line to the sun, and (4 ) that the planetary arrangements, relative to the sun, are in the order listed above instead of Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Earth, Venus. Problems in physics: If the assumption is made that such synchronous orbits once existed, the laws of physics would not permit these planets to assume their present configurations and relative distances from the sun within 100,000 years of time. I assume that this amount of time is the maximum time for mythology to develop. For that matter, however, ...
... the more considerable difterences which I have discovered: I shall next take notice of the particular modifications which my performance should introduce into the hitherto received opinions respecting the primitive history of the globe ; and, last of all, I shall inquire how far the civil and religious history of different nations corresponds with the results of an examination of the physical history of the earth, and with the probabilities afforded by such examination concerning the period at which societies of men had it in their power to take up fixed abodes, to occupy fields susceptible of cultivation, and consequently to assume a settled and durable form. 3. Of thefirst appearance ofthe Earth. When the traveller passes through those ...
236. Quantalism: the Big Picture [Articles]
... than rocketry. One could extend it to all investigatory enterprises. And, doing so, one would find Velikovsky to epitomize the T-man ideal. As a specialist, he was in the forefront of psychiatric exploration, having been the first to postulate the electrical nature of epilepsy. Yet, as a generalist, he spanned the academic spectrum from physical science to global mythology. Turning again to etymology, I see significance in the fact that the literal meanings of the two Greek-derived words physicist and physician are the same; both mean "naturist," or one who studies nature in order to deal more effectively with it. Velikovsky was not only a scientist in the contemporary sense but ...
237. BBC Horizon [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... cosmic crunch. From Here to Infinity looks at how scientists claim they have now found the answer and how, in the process, they have also discovered something else - something quite unexpected: a mysterious energy in the universe, an energy that had never been seen before. It's a discovery that challenges our understanding of the fundamental laws of physics. [Extracts from the transcript]: Narrator: Supernovae would be the key to measuring the expansion of the universe and reveal how it would all end. [. .. ] After 5 years of searching Saul and his team had found 42 supernovae. Narrator: They were seeing something quite extraordinary. The supernovae were 20% ...
238. Geomagnetic Effects of an Earthwide Event in 2300BC [Journals] [SIS Review]
... changes at 2300 BC including, in particular, significant global drops in temperature and (2 ) crustal phenomena occurring at that time caused by glacial buildup due to the lowered temperatures and consequent crustal loading. This paper is a continuation of that logical structure. It covers a range of geomagnetic phenomena occurring or starting at 2300 BC in response to physical stresses in the structure of the Earth. As such, it supports both of the previous papers. The conclusion is that something important happened at that time that warrants attention. Moe Mandelkehr was born and grew up in Kansas City, and currently lives in New Jersey, USA. He has a BSc and an MSc in Electrical Engineering ...

... , hunger and energy. Plato connects the word with thuo, which we have met when discussing fire sacrifices. It can be breath, Latin anima. The word is related to Russian dym', smoke. Menos, bodily strength, often means spirit or rage. It can also mean disposition, like Latin mens, but it is physical rather than Q-CD vol 12: KA, Ch. 13: KA', and Egyptian Magic 168 mental. It is used in periphrasis, like bia and kara, e.g . hieron menos Alkinooio, the holy strength of Alkinous (Odyssey). Sthenos, ardour, is used in the same way, e.g ...
240. A Cosmic Debate [Books] [de Grazia books]
... ago. Instead of being uniformitarian, it is catastrophic. It reviews first ages of nature and mankind, and draws several conclusions: The Earth has suffered wide-scale natural disasters in consequence of changes in the solar system. These disasters have happened within reach of human memory. Cultures everywhere have assigned disasters to the planets. Human nature was both physically and psychically affected by catastrophe. The human mind first, later, and always has suppressed its terrible memories of such events, and let them emerge in altered forms, sometimes benevolent, productive and artistic, at other times malevolent, destructive and deranged. If these propositions of primevalogy are defensible, they will affect practically all areas of ...
