41. Guidelines To The Saturn Myth [Journals] [Kronos]
... Part One of a Series) David Talbott BACKGROUND Recent issues of KRONOS have included several papers dealing with Saturn and the Golden Age. Though the resulting portrait may not be entirely clear, readers surely have noticed certain overlapping images. The portrait has also been clouded somewhat by disagreements on some fundamental issues, several of them concerning my proposed "polar configuration". In 1972, while serving as publisher of Pensee, I presented to several of the journal's associates an unusual idea, one which (to the best of my knowledge) had no theoretical precedent. I suggested the prehistoric existence of an apparition towering above the Earth and centered upon an ancient sun god of the north celestial ...
42. Pole Shifts Through Impacts: The Debate Goes on [Journals] [Aeon]
... Careful observation of a thrown forward-pass (American) football shows that its pointed end also describes a coning motion. I also challenge Barbiero's statement "that the sudden displacement of mass due to a major earthquake is immediately registered by the pole's position, with a jump in the order of meters...[as shown by] the International Polar Motion Service (Ukiah, Ca.)." [6 ] I don't think the daily positions derived from GPS (Global Positioning System) satellite observations during the past 10 years show any such effect. I must therefore ask him to supply the dates and observed meter-level pole shift from the International Polar Motion Service data to support his ...
43. Maya Cosmos: A Saturnian Interpretation (Part II) [Journals] [Aeon]
... , such as their sun gods and World Trees. [1 ] Freidel, Schele, and Parker's Maya Cosmos forms the major source of this essay, as it brings together some of the latest findings of Mayanists combined with excellent illustrative material. From this, it has been possible to augment what has become known as the Saturnian, or Polar, Configuration model. The basic facts that have emerged so far about this configuration stem from the extensive study of three dedicated comparative mythologists: Dwardu Cardona, Ev Cochrane, and David Talbott. Their many years of research have led to some commonly accepted ideas about the nature of the world in man's prehistoric past. According to this scenario ...
44. The Cosmic String of Pearls [Journals] [Aeon]
... hand, settles on the calculation of 1953 BCE as the year of the Chinese grand conjunction, yet simultaneously understands that the planets had to be not merely massed in one lunar mansion, but literally stacked at a precise degree of longitude.  The precise demands of the theory of the grand conjunction should be entirely clear when the polar aspect of the conjunction is taken into consideration. It is not enough to place the five innermost planets along with the Sun and the Moon on a straight line, but this stack of planets should further be aligned with the polar axis, connecting the axis of the earth with the celestial north and south poles. I admit that this ...
45. Proposed Variations on the Saturnian Configuration [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon VI:1 (Feb 2001) Home | Issue Contents Proposed Variations on the Saturnian Configuration Tonny van Rhee, from Tessenderlo, Belgium, writes: The Configuration: The polar configuration theory proposed by David Talbott and Dwardu Cardona assumes that the planets Saturn, Venus, Mars, and Earth shared a common spin axis and that Earth's north pole was always pointing toward Saturn. The whole system moved in an orbit around the Sun, while the planets moved in an orbit around Saturn. The plane of this orbit is presumed to have formed an angle with the plane of Saturn's orbit around the Sun (probably because the Sun is needed to produce a crescent on ...
46. The Causal Source for the Climatic Changes at 2300 BC [Journals] [SIS Review]
... relationship between the phenomena, so their impact in introducing a unified model was correspondingly limited. I now hope to rectify this situation. My premise is outlined below. The primary causal factor for the overall event was the widespread and dramatic climatic changes arising from an abrupt cooling of the Earth. This caused a significant synchronous glacial buildup in both Polar and sub-Polar regions. The increased loading on the land areas and decreased loading in ocean areas (due to water taken by the glaciers) resulted in global crustal stress, leading to earthquakes and crustal deformation. Cultures in all geographical regions were affected by these climatic and geological disturbances. In the areas of the most advanced cultures, climate ...
47. Vox POPVLI [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:1 (Nov 1997) Home | Issue Contents Vox Popvli Some Thoughts on the Saturnian Sun and Polar Column Mike Twose, from Toronto, Ontario, writes: In reading Ev Cochrane's interesting article on the Milky Way, [1 ] it occurred to me that no one, that I know of, has delved into the conditions that must have influenced the gases and dust that must have stretched between Earth and Saturn during the time of the Saturnian configuration. [2 ] In the beginning, the difference in electrical charge between the two planets must have been quite large. The flow of current through the ionized gases would have been enough to create ...
48. Mother Goddess and Warrior-Hero (Part One) [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon I:5 (Sep 1988) Home | Issue Contents Mother Goddess and Warrior-Hero (Part One)David Talbott The necessary emphasis on the planet Saturn in much of the prior discussion of the polar configuration has perhaps created a false impression that must now be corrected. Because the myths present Saturn as the "first father"- the central sun and creator who originally stood "alone" in the sky- that planet is the logical focus of any attempt to present the configuration. At the same time this can be misleading, by suggesting that the other planetary gods have only minor roles, which is not the case at all. With the growing speculation ...
49. A DYNAMICAL OBJECTION TO GRUBAUGH'S POLAR CONFIGURATION [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon III:6 (Dec 1994) Home | Issue Contents A DYNAMICAL OBJECTION TO GRUBAUGH'S POLAR CONFIGURATION Victor J. Slabinski At the editor's request, I offer the following comments on the paper by Robert Grubaugh entitled "A Proposed Model for the Polar Configuration" (Aeon vol.III, no.3 , pp. 39-48). The paper gives insufficient mathematical analysis; it merely asserts important features of the theory with the promise of future demonstrations of the physics. The paper is far below the standards of Peter Warlow, for instance, who tried to supply mathematical rigor to his tippe-top inversion of the earth(1 ). (His mathematical analysis contained ...
50. The Demands of the Saturnian Configuration Theory [Journals] [SIS Review]
... that, when sailing in his ship, or boat, Ra is said to move down at dawn  and upstream' at night , contrary to what we see the Sun doing in our sky. How, then, can mythologists continue to claim that the Egyptian Ra was a personification of the Sun? The Polar Station If, as the model assumes, Saturn appeared motionless in Earth's north celestial sphere, how could it have been seen to rise and set, even if contrary to the way the Sun does? This troubled me for some time until, with David Talbott, I realised that the fault lay with mythologists and not mythology or, ...
