31. Evidence of Careenings of the Globe [Books]
... Siberia Analysis of the stomach contents of these carcasses does not substantiate this theory. The evidence suggests that the feeding grounds containing these animals was moved quickly from a warm to a frigid climate. The carcasses of rhinoceroses, also found in the ground, aid in further substantiating that some of the feeding grounds were tropical, and that the present polar climate of their resting places is far different from the climate of the Eden-like land in which they were born and reared. The food contents of the stomachs of the mammoths also give us a clue as to the exact time of day the earth careened. A full stomach indicates the sudden death of a healthy animal, and that death ...
32. The Unworkable Polar Saturn [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon I:3 (1988) Home | Issue Contents The Unworkable Polar Saturn Roger Ashton 1. Saturn at the North Celestial Pole As if a rational process of thinking accounted for the content of folklore and myth, efforts to trace it all back to an identifiable origin, starting particularly with de Santillana's and von Dechend's Hamlet's Mill, have tended to uncover origins in a celestial context. Pursuing the course of the earlier Worlds in Collision, by Immanuel Velikovsky, and looking further backwards, such writers as David N. Talbott, Dwardu Cardona and others have produced several divergent versions of planetarily reconstructed myth in which Saturn is situated at the Earth's north celestial pole. ...
33. Letters To The Edttor [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon III:6 (Dec 1994) Home | Issue Contents Letters To The Edttor To the Editor:For several weeks this Spring I monitored, and briefly participated in, a discussion being conducted on an internet news group. The discussion derived from David Talbott's hypothesis that there existed a polar apparition during a Saturnian Golden Age, and his subsequent deduction that the apparition was caused by a specific arrangement of the planets. Because Robert Grubaugh has presented his model of synchronous orbits to explain how the apparition may have been constructed, his model and calculations have been brought into the discussion. It is my understanding that discussion was initiated in the hope that knowledgeable people who ...
34. The Ship of Heaven [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon I:3 (1988) Home | Issue Contents The Ship of Heaven David Talbott This is a follow-up article to my earlier "Reconstructing the Saturn Myth" and "On Testing the Polar Configuration" (AEON I: 1-2). It is assumed that readers have read these articles and are familiar with the general context of the theory discussed in the following pages. Introduction Figure 1. The Polar Configuration In two previous essays, I have outlined a theory of the Saturnian age, claiming that only a few thousand years ago (some time before the dawn of civilization) the Earth participated in a planetary system unlike anything known today. Though all of ...
35. The Demands of the Saturnian Configuration Theory [Journals] [Aeon]
... same version was read again, by popular demand, in two parts, at the World Conference sponsored by Kronia Communications, on September 23 and 24, 2000. Still in its shortened version, it has, since then, been published in Chronology & Catastrophism Review. The full version appears for the first time below. Part I The Polar Saturn 1. INTRODUCTION For those who are not familiar with the Saturnian configuration, the theory, bizarre in the extreme, can be reduced to its simplest form by positing that the planets Saturn, Venus, Mars, and Earth were once much closer to each other. More than that, they were strung out in a linear conformation ...
36. Instantaneous Polar Shifts [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:5 (Jan 2000) Home | Issue Contents Instantaneous Polar Shifts Tim Thompson, from JPL NASA, writes: Flavio Barbiero might be a mathematician, but he's not a physicist. His analysis of the gyroscope looks right, but his application of same to Earth is wholly wrong. Gyroscopes work the way they do as long as the torques applied are on a time scale that is long compared to the mechanical structure. But if you torque a gyroscope with an impulse that exceeds the shear strength of the gyroscope material, it will not produce a reaction torque, it will just break. This, for instance, is what will happen to a ...
37. A Proposed Model for the Polar Configuration [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon III:3 (Oct 1993) Home | Issue Contents A Proposed Model for the Polar Configuration Robert Grubaugh The polar configuration as conceived by Talbott, Cochrane, and Cardona from the mythology, art, and language of the ancients requires that Saturn be the largest visible object in the sky, and hence much closer to the Earth than at present. The thesis also requires that Saturn occupy a fixed position in the northern sky and that it have a lighted face which appears as a crescent that rotates as the Earth rotates about its own axis. The planets Venus and Mars are also envisaged as having occupied a fixed position in a direct line between Earth and ...
38. The Reversed Polarity of the Earth, Part 1 Venus Ch.5 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... From "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Reversed Polarity of the Earth A thunderbolt, on striking a magnet, reverses the poles of the magnet. The terrestrial globe is a huge magnet. A short circuit between it and another celestial body could result in the north and south magnetic poles of the earth exchanging places. It is possible to detect in the geological records of the earth the orientation of the terrestrial magnetic field in past ages. "When lava cools and freezes following a volcanic outburst; it takes up a permanent magnetization dependent upon the orientation of the Earth's magnetic field at the time. This, because of ...
39. The Reconstruction of Cosmic History [Journals] [Aeon]
... . This is the same problem that confronted de Santillana and von Dechend who could not accept "ideas about planets performing feats at places which are out of their range as both the poles are. ''(30) That they also had their own preconceived theory to try and uphold may account for the ease with which they dismissed Saturn's polar placement. Like them, but to a lesser extent, Jueneman departed from the mytho-historical record in contesting the Saturnian identity. Even so, as we have seen, he did accept the north celestial placement of a primeval planet. By opting for a body less massive than Saturn, he hoped to accommodate the dynamical difficulties of the model ...
40. SERVANT OF THE SUN GOD [Journals] [Aeon]
... the predecessor to the jester, minstrel and fool. In this paper, and several to follow, I will seek to show that the biography of the ancient god and planet Mars provides the necessary unifying principles and that these enable one to understand the many encountered themes as aspects of a single and pervasive mythical figure. Figure 1. The Polar Configuration It is assumed, of course, that readers are familiar with the general thesis of the polar configuration and the preliminary details I have outlined in previous AEON articles. The model under consideration, based on the premise of a polar Saturn, has the planet Mars rotating on a shared Earth-Saturn axis, much closer to the Earth than ...
