... dire circumstances, saying that he could not go on battling the antagonistic forces against which he strove to either defend his theory or continue publishing more volumes which applied biology to psychology, sociology and ethics. According to Herbert Wendt, At this juncture, he received a letter fron his fiercest opponent, the positivist philosopher John Stuart Mill. These ... attention of the supporters and opponents of Immanuel Velikovsky and the supporters and opponents of Carl Sagan, but that it will also be of great interest to astronomers, historians, psychologists, theologians, geologists, biologists and physicists, as well as to the general public.

102. The Catastrophic Finale of the Middle Bronze Age [Books] [de Grazia books]
... and history need to reexamine many of their findings an theories. The methodologies employed in ancient studies require both intermeshing and invention. An ideal archaeologist needs to know something of psychology and geo-physics, anthropology and astronomy, the history and science of human management. (I could make the ideal even more impossible, but why go on save to ... millennium construction and abandonment are hundreds of megalithic monuments throughout the vast area. The astronomical interest of these peoples is now proven. But, even if one is not a psychologist, one cannot think it is normal for people to cut and lug 100-ton stones to do a job that a few sticks of wood would accomplish- watching the Sun ...
103. Of Lessons, Legacies, and Litmus Tests: A Velikovsky Potpourri (Part One) [Journals] [Aeon]
... Part One)Leroy Ellenberger "Knowing that no intellectual resource available to me validly refuted it, I got drawn in."- Edmund D. Cohen, "The Psychology of the Bible-Believer," Free Inquiry, Spring 1987 "So many people think that an idea becomes true or probable by their very cleverness in devising it. They ... claimed, to resistance to his ideas, or whether it grew out of questions about his scholarship and his attitude towards critics." At that time Masters was a practicing psychologist in San Diego. When I queried Velikovsky at Seaside Heights on May 19, 1979, about his reply to Sachs, he exploded in anger at me, ostensibly ...
104. An Empirical Approach to Collective AmnesiaA [Journals] [Kronos]
... Home | Issue Contents An Empirical Approach to Collective Amnesia David Griffard Copyright (C ) 1981 by David Griffard [* This work is an elaboration of ideas presented, in part, at the 1980 Princeton Symposium Velikovsky: The Decade Ahead, sponsored by KRONOS.] The scenarios of interplanetary chaos presented in Worlds in Collision stem primarily from Velikovsky's psychological analysis that historical reality underlies ancient legendary, mythical themes of theomachy and natural catastrophe. This meaning has been lost "because of some characteristic process that later caused entire nations, together with their literate men, to read into these traditions allegories or metaphors where actually cosmic disturbances were clearly described" (W in C, p. 300 ...
105. Myth, Mandala, and the Collective Unconscious [Journals] [Kronos]
... the near collision of the earth with the proto-planet Venus and its fiery, serpentine tail. Reinforced by contiguous global calamities, the event left a basic image in collective traditions around the world. (3 ) Along the same principle, earlier motifs had already developed from events associated chiefly with Saturn and Jupiter (Kronos and Zeus). In psychology, according to Jung's observation and analysis, the cosmic monster motif is one of several archetypal forms which frequently appear in dreams and fantasies of modern individuals, some of whom, such as young children, seem unlikely to have acquired the ideas or images through personal experience. Jung concluded that the unconscious was in part collective; that instinctive ...

... [emphasis added] but are forever condemned to begin their study at some point far down the line . . ." . He then documents allusions to a vast c. 1500 B.C . cosmic catastrophe in the originological texts of widely-separated religions and links these to Velikovsky's work on planetary contacts. From this, Myers deduces a general psychology of religion, "sin", and scapegoating: general catastrophe strengthens the concept of an all-powerful "God", who must continue to be seen as essentially beneficent lest life become altogether too terrifying .. . But, to sustain this belief in the face of catastrophe, the victims must be perceived as having somehow "sinned" ...
107. The Science of Catastrophism [Articles]
... , blazing heat and choking dust, rains of fire and overwhelming thunder, unstoppable, unpredictable and colossal. We who are catastrophists believe three general things: that events like these did probably occur, that our ancestors saw, remembered and recorded them in myth, religion, folklore and art, and that we the human race are as scarred psychologically by them as the Earth was geologically. As Velikovsky put it, "We are descendants of survivors, themselves descendants of survivors." This may sound radical, hard to accept, implausible, like a fairy tale. Fifty years ago, when Velikovsky's theory first emerged, hardly anyone believed it. How could it be true? ...
108. Epic Postscript [Journals] [Kronos]
... American film-making was crowned by the "Epic Age" whose major constituent was the Biblical Blockbuster. it was not until the box-office triumph of the war, violence, crime, and disaster movies - beginning in the late sixties - that Religious Spectaculars capitulated and virtually disappeared from the repertoire of American cinema.(1 ) Here is an interesting psychological phenomenon indeed, for while American movies have always been well represented by the horror, monster, science-fiction, war, crime, violence, and disaster genre, it was the Religio-heroic theme of the post-War years which captured (until now) the largest audiences and made the most money.(2 ) The movie theater became a quasi-temple ...
109. The Role of Collective Amnesia in Retarding the Acceptance of Correct Ideas in Science [Journals] [Kronos]
... fools." Galileo became bolder only when, having observed Jupiter and its satellites through his telescope, he recognized a structure similar to that described by Copernicus: a sun encircled by planets. But his open defense of the Copernican theory caused a storm of opposition. What was so unacceptable in the heliocentric system? Most generally it threatened humankind's psychological need for the feeling of security, itself most probably based on a deep hidden insecurity. A moving Earth is a less secure place than an unmoveable one. Additionally, mankind was denied the central role in the universe. This not only was injurious to his ego but was also interpreted to be in conflict with the tenets of the ...
110. Hardy, Tess and Psychic Scotoma [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... melodramatic device of non-recognition whenever Tess is approached by her nemesis, d'Urberville.(6 ) It is my contention that this apparent aberration was neither a lapse of judgment nor of artistic control on Hardy's part; nor was it a sop to the sensibilities of his time. It was, rather, a literary depiction of an important but neglected psychological phenomenon and can serve, metaphorically, as one of Hardy's major insights into the human situation. The psychological phenomenon in question is what psychoanalyst Immanuel Velikovsky called mental scotoma.(7 ) To an ophthalmologist, a scotoma is a partial blindness: some segment within the field of vision does not register upon the person's retina due to a ...
