71. Poles Uprooted, Part 2 Mars Ch.7 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... were reversed. Consequently, the first chart could not have been interpreted at all. The other chart, with its displ aced constellations, suggested to the author of the above quotation that it depicted some more ancient tradition. The only change, according to modern astronomy, comes from the precession of the equinoxes or the slow movement of the polar axis which descr ibes a circle in the course of about twenty-six thousand years. The computation of the precession is insufficient by far to explain the position of the constellations on the chart if we rely on the conventional chronology (and even more so if we follow th e revised chronology, which brings the age of Senmut and Queen Hatshepsut ...
72. Gyroscopic Precession [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... 1998:1 (June 1998) Home | Issue Contents Gyroscopic Precession From: D&M Gilroy, firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Fri, 1 May 1998 01:28:00 -0400 What follows is part of a letter I wrote to Dave Talbott and Ev Cochrane a month or so ago. It discusses the polar configuration in terms of the requirements for gyroscopic precession. Gyroscopes have been an experimental interest of mine for some time. Since my letter Dave invited me to join the Kronia List. I hope you will find that this brief discussion provides some food for thought. There never was a time on Earth when there were no seasons. For ...
73. Vox Popvli [Journals] [Aeon]
... for accuracy. Visibility of Venus Richard M. Smith, from Banning, California, writes: In his article on the planetary distances of the Saturnian configuration, Emilio Spedicato wrote: "It is observed that the visibility angle of Mars is greater than that of Venus, hence Venus would not be visible, falsifying a fundamental point of the polar model." [3 ] However, even according to Spedicato's model, [4 ] if the viewpoint of an observer is placed slightly north of Earth's equator, Venus would become visible. In fact, Venus would be visible, even if only as a thin crescent, up to about 60-deg north latitude. [5 ] If ...
74. The Paleo-Saturnian System [Journals] [Aeon]
... I am able to descry both strengths and weaknesses in the Saturn theory. Thus, for instance, having read excerpts from Dwardu Cardona's autobiographical essay,  as well as other papers on the subject, I couldn't help drawing certain conclusions from the following points: Cardona cited a tradition that speaks of mankind having originated in Earth's north polar region.  Lynn Rose identified the Afar Triangle of Ethiopia (a highland region- ground-zero of a three-plate split) as a candidate for the mythic World Mountain.  According to the "out-of-Africa" model (which I'm not entirely fond of), Homo sapiens sapiens did originate in the general vicinity of Ethiopia ...
75. Martian Metamorphoses: The Planet Mars in Ancient Myth and Religion by Ev Cochrane [Journals] [SIS Review]
... never followed up. A small body of researchers, starting notably with David Talbott's seminal work, have taken over where Velikovsky left off and developed a complex imagery of the planetary relationships, as interpreted by world wide myths, which were seen by early man. Whether or not the reader is convinced by the so-called Saturn scenario', or Polar Configuration', if you are at all interested in the interpretation of myth and what it can tell us about our earliest history, then this latest book by Ev Cochrane is well worth a place on your reference shelf. Cochrane offers us nearly 200 pages of examples from around the world of the exploits and characteristics of the multiplicity of ...

77. The Celestial Ship of North Vol. I [Books]
... been the same fundamentally in all ages. Out of knowledge of this ancient bond has been born the only true religion or "binding back" to causation. Heavenly forces play upon earth and visibly impress their operative laws. The sun governs earth's motion. The moon sways earth's tides. The pole-star exerts a lawgiving, orbit-directing influence upon earth's polar axis. And the signs of the zodiac through which the Sun takes his royal course year after year and in one of which earth dwells every age, being at present in Pisces and proceeding thence into Aquarius, were called the "living creatures" because of their lively magisterial modification of all forces playing through the sun upon earth. ...
78. RECONSTRUCTING THE SATURN MYTH [Journals] [Aeon]
... imagined by either historians or astronomers. Nevertheless, the model I offer holds one advantage that prior "catastrophist" notions based on the study of myth have lacked. It is specific enough to be easily disproved on its own ground if wrong. Whatever else one may think of it, it meets this test of a good theory. The Polar Configuration The thesis holds that a unique congregation of planets preceded the planetary system familiar to us today. For earthbound witnesses, the result was a spectacular, at times highly unified apparition in the heavens, the center of human attention around the world. My claim is that this fear-inspiring image once stretched across the northern sky, towering over ...
79. Prehistory and Earth Models [Books]
... strong gravity anomaly. The total ice in the Wisconsin ice caps was about 1023 grams and would thus have required about 1033 ergs to melt it. This is all the solar energy falling on the earth in about 30 years. But no more than 0.1 % of this energy could conceivably go into melting of the ice caps in polar regions. Thus, a lower limit to the time to melt such a massive ice cap would seem to be at least 30,000 years, even allowing for considerable climatic changes. But even this relatively short time is long enough that isostasy would be practically maintained during melting, because the relaxation time for the earth's crust is less ...
80. Poleshift [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... observation which relates to the solution of this problem: "So long as the axis of rotation remains in nearly its present position relative to the plane of the earth's orbit around the sun, the outer limit of the atmosphere in tropical regions must receive more of the sun's heat than the middle latitudes, and the middle latitudes more than the polar regions; this is an invariable law.... it is much more difficult to think of a cause which will raise the temperature of the polar regions by some 30 F. or more, while leaving that of the equatorial regions almost unchanged, and so bring about an approach to the distribution of climate zones during the warm ...
