121. The Opening Of The Mouth Ritual - Part I [Journals] [Aeon]
... Eyes'." [5 ] This event was the key funeral ritual (or ceremony, as some prefer) for success-fully bridging the gap from life here and now to life forever after "roaming free like the lords of time" [6 ] in the company of the eternal gods in "lightland," [7 ] the polar heaven. If you played your cards right, or more correctly, if the priests in charge of the ritual performed all their roles properly, you were assured of this all-important goal. The basis for the Opening of the Mouth ritual and, indeed, the very notion of survival after death, by the ancient Egyp-tians was inspired by ...
122. Scientific Prehistory [Books]
... and influx of uranium in the oceans and helium in the atmosphere, the instability of palaeo-magnetism in the rocks, and reinterpreted systematic discrepancies in the radioactive `time clocks" are among the substantiating arguments. "` Continental Drift' is described as a recent catastrophic rupture of Pangaea' and sudden shift of the continents under the tremendous forces of polar ice caps. Crustal uplifts and depressions, shield geosyncline-welt interrelationships, the nature and occurrence of coal, oil and fossils, over-thrusting and stacking of strata, for instance, in the Canadian Rockies, and other geologic information substantiate this novel reconstruction of Prehistory. Biological Prehistory is discussed from time implication and a central argument that spontaneous generation and ...
123. The Holy Land [Books]
... . In Egyptian thought, states Clark, the celestial pole is "that place" or "the great city." Here dwells the "Master of the Primeval Place." (12) When the god in the Coffin Texts proclaims, "I am the creator who sits in the supreme place," the reference is to the polar abode, Clark tells us. (13) Iranian astronomy drew on the same tradition when it designated the celestial pole as Gah, which means simply "the place," the dwelling of "the Great One in the Middle of the Sky." (14) In Iranian cosmology it is Saturn who occupies the polar Gah, ...
124. Changing Sea Levels [Journals] [Aeon]
... a different explanation for the conditions found in the Arctic area. Despite the supposed, and conflicting, dates of the remains in question, it is my honest opinion that the vast fields of broken bones mixed with sand, uprooted and smashed trees, and stones of various sizes, all frozen in muck, owe their occurrence to the same polar column which Jueneman himself had elsewhere described as a churning vortex of planetary proportions. [4 ] Although Jueneman did not mean his hypothesis to apply to the Saturnian configuration, it can easily be made to do so. And, in fact, the Saturnian axis mundi is often described in similar terms- as a twirling vortex and/ ...
125. Maya Cosmos: A Saturnian Interpretation [Journals] [Aeon]
... or dust" which "stretched across the face of Saturn, creating the visual image of an equal-limbed cross."  Talbott calls this the Radiant Venus, while the four-fold appearance became mythologized as the Four Rivers, Four Pathways, Four Pillars, as well as the Four Cardinal directions of the world, the cosmos. The polar column, which Talbott envisions as "a stream of gas or material stretching from Mars toward the polar region of the Earth,"  would have been seen as the trunk of the fourfold World Tree. Thus Mary Miller and Karl Taube could claim that: "In Mesoamerican thought the cardinal directions were associated with a broad ...
126. Thoth Vol I, No. 13: May 16, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... "Saturn theory." New readers are referred to earlier installments in issues of THOTH posted on the Kronia website (address listed at the end of this newsletter). Go to the THOTH page and click on the image titled "Thoth: the Egyptian God of Knowledge" to access the back issues.- To the traditions of a polar power, previously cited, should be added the following: In the Persian Zend Avesta the creator-king Ahura Mazda rules from atop the world axis, the fixed station "around which the many stars revolve." Iranian cosmology, as reported by Leopold de Saussure, esteemed the celestial pole as the center and summit of heaven, where resided ...
127. A Model of the Polar Configuration [Articles]
... A Model of the Polar Configuration Robert Grubaugh I've been following David Talbott's material for a number of years, and the first response, generally, to what he had proposed in the way of the planets all lined up like a "shish-ka-bob" was, "That's nonsense, David. It's against the laws of physics; you can't do that. Kepler's Laws and all that sort of thing...You're dreaming. Forget about it." Well, when I got wind of this I thought, "Well, my goodness, I don't believe that's the case at all. I believe that Kepler's Laws do not necessarily apply to this kind of a configuration. ...
128. Answers To Critics [Journals] [Kronos]
... had either the good sense or at least the good luck to reserve judgment on the tippe top. * * * In another of his letters (KRONOS VIII:1 , pages 94-95), Ellenberger cites unpublished calculations by Victor Slabinski to the effect that increases in Earth's rotation rate would have produced radical changes in water levels, especially in polar and tropical areas. Water levels in the polar areas would have dropped. and water levels in the tropical areas would have sharply risen. The temperate areas would have suffered far less. Ellenberger says that if such changes occurred, "records of and evidence for them ought to be obvious and plentiful". But how much in the ...

The jackal (Canis aureus) inhabits Africa, the warmer parts of Asia, and Greece ; while the isatis ( Canis lagopus) resides in the arctic regions. The African hare and the polar hare have their geographical distribution expressed in their trivial names ;" * and different species of bears thrive in tropical, temperate, and arctic latitudes. Recent investigations have placed beyond all doubt the important fact that a species of tiger, identical with that of Bengal, is common in the neighborhood of Lake Aral, near Sussac, in ...

... Darkness and the Deep" -and sent it to a selected few for comment. Needless to say, Juergens was delighted to discover that his conjecture had not fallen on deaf ears. More than that, he dove headlong into the problem concerning the manner in which the Earth's hydrosphere could have maintained itself in a raised heap around the north polar region. Could this not have been the watery deep out of which creation was said to have progressed? Frederic Jueneman did not agree. In a report he wrote on my paper, dated May 21, 1978, he dwelt at length upon the subject. He argued strongly in favor of a cosmic, as opposed to a terrestrial ...
