151. HOMO SCHIZO I: Chapter 2: MECHANICS OF HUMANIZATION [Quantavolution Website]
... growth of the cranium. We should also rule out the piling up of reinforced primate experience in a growing storage-box brain that would eventually begin to expel human products. One need only contrast the races of mankind to see how little difference so many changes do make in psychology and behavior. With skin color from black to pink, hairiness from hirsute to hairless bodies, height from the very tall Watusi to the neighboring Pygmy, nose from flat to hooked, head from broad to long, cranial capacity from 830 to 2000 cc. ... differences of dentition, of blood groups, and so on, homo schizo has nevertheless come to possess a similar array of psychological qualities whatever his outward appearances. We should look most closely for signs of self-awareness, of a split ego, for from this, we believe, and only from this, would come the flood of fear, the insatiable demand for self-control, and the outward movement of this need to control, taking the form of showers of displacements that would be transformable into human conduct. Symbolism would be the necessary ...
152. Freud and Velikovsky Part II [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... the classic period of the creators of the Mishnah and the Midrashim and the Talmud, analysis of justice and flights of imagination without parallels in world literature. Yes, Freud stayed a Jew, half-consciously. For the fact cannot be done away that his discoveries in analytic psychology, above all his methods of free-ranging reason and fantasy, and his dream interpretation, were peculiarly, characteristically, of Jewish vintage. Jung, after all, was right when he declared that psychoanalysis was a "non-Aryan" science. Jung's circle had indulged for ... Book of Oblivion or The Science Memory (psychoanalysis), and pursues the clarification of ancient history which his old friend Immanuel Velikovsky regarded as the greatest of our duties. The Passover Marvels was Dr. Feldman's first publication along this trail. He is married to a psychologist and father of three sons. ...
153. CHAOS AND CREATION: CHAPTER 07: EARTH PARTURITION AND MOON BIRTH [Quantavolution Website]
... in as well, so that Aphrodite becomes Venus in men's minds, for example, or Zeus becomes Saturn, or Saturn becomes the Sun, and so on. More of this later. The present chapter is done. On evidence from geophysics, mythology, and psychology, the Moon is deemed to be a recently exploded fraction of the Earth, to be newly emplaced, and to have been worshipped heavily and in accord with its original history. Still to be related are later experiences of the Earth's satellite, of when it ... foreign groups. The collective memories of the groups recalled the vanished age of Urania and the civilizations that had been blasted from the Earth, drowned, or shaken to death by earthquakes at the approach of the Uranian planet. The memories were painful and unbelievable to the psychologically and physically depressed survivors. They were therefore distorted, suppressed, and selectively elaborated. The Moon was watched with fear and trembling the less so as it became regular in its behavior. Its routine and successive phases were marked down and the logic of a calendar ...
154. GODS FIRE: [Quantavolution Website]
... is committed to the suppression by priests and ritual. And it never can adjust to the reality of recollection, and hence never can accommodate to the reality of the present. This mental condition is bound up with the invisible god and is a large factor in the psychological operations of mosaism and Yahwism. If the mental process were to be divided into phases, in the first phase a perception occurred: the sight and force is then accorded life, that is, anthropomorphization. The reality of the comet passes and the memory remains ... and, to have this function, especially in terrible instances, must be distorted. The trauma of anthropomorphic natural force can be managed; a great natural force cannot, and hence must be denied. Thus, the Romans had gods with human qualities and permitted themselves psychologically to associate these gods with planets- as in the case of Mars- but in only one case, cited by Pliny, was an actual comet consciously named and admitted to the pantheon as a god, that of Augustus Caesar. THE GENTILE EXODUS The experience ...
155. GODS FIRE: [Quantavolution Website]
... forces were invading the country at the moment of Exodus. If this be sheer conjecture about Buber's mind, let it pass as such. But let me nevertheless conjecture about a similar effect in the mind of David Daiches, for he, like Buber, dismisses any psychological approach to Moses. In the Epiloque to his learned and beautiful "coffee-table" book on the life of Moses, Daiches writes "For generations schoolboys have asked each other: 'Where was Moses when the light went out?' and replied, 'Under the bed ... the cost of realism. There is also an invariable stereotyping, such as we have found in historiography as well. Again the Bible as legend veers towards history because of its frequent insistence upon the uniqueness of events and personalities. Aaron is, like Moses, authentic psychologically and yet not stereotyped. Even Miriam is not, though less is said of her. Joshua, of whom almost no characterization is given, can be put together into a convincing personage. Events, too. When it is said of the plague of frogs ...
156. GODS FIRE: CHAPTER TWO: THE SCENARIO OF EXODUS [Quantavolution Website]
... and exploiting his connections, knowledge, and daring- an event that can be fixed from his sight of the Burning Bush from which Yahweh addressed him- had any idea of how bad conditions would really become. And if, at the beginning, in the typical psychology of the great but frustrated man, thinking in the lonely wilds of his life's purpose, he began to hear from a superhuman being, and only half-believed in what he had heard, but was nevertheless seized by the idea of uniting his return to Egyptian affairs ... at the poles and, when sufficiently charged, the poles exchange a spark, a light, a divine fire. Unlike the pyramid, or mountain, the Ark can be moved to where its sources of strength are greatest and its effects can be most effective for psychological or other purposes. The Ark is not weak. Set up properly, and given the electrical conditions of today, a sparking machine, a large Leyden jar, can accumulate and discharge tens of thousands of volts. It was something, both in actuality and ...
157. Focus [SIS C&C Review $]
... the scientific establishment's reaction to Worlds in Collision eluded me. The notion that the explanation for the hostility lay in Velikovsky's challenging the widely-held belief in the essentially eternal stability of the solar system was appealing, but not convincing until I discovered two obscure articles dealing with the psychology of scientific prejudice and the forces against creativity in science. Before divulging the contents of these two pivotal articles, I would like to cite several sources that shed revealing light on the reception of Velikovsky's ideas. Polanyi, in his widely cited article on the organisation ... of Stafford Beer, has observed in another context [13a, "Nature is not organized the way our knowledge of it is." Appreciation of this observation is a key to expanding our knowledge of nature. A core of prominent pro-Velikovsky writing has focused on the psychological aspects of the establishment's reaction to Worlds in Collision. To me, they sound a compelling, though incomplete, chord. Establishment writers tend to ignore the visceral level, preferring to remain aloof at the institutional, community-of-scholars, level. For some readers, Shapley's ...
158. Bookshelf [SIS C&C Review $]
... Bookshelf edited by Brian Moore THE DRAGONS OF EDEN: Speculations on the Evolution of Human Intelligence by Carl Sagan (London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1978: £5.95). N. J. MACKINTOSH* [* N. J. Mackintosh is Professor of Experimental Psychology at the University of Sussex (Brighton, UK). This review is reprinted from Nature Vol. 272 (27th April 1978) by permission of the author and publisher.Carl Sagan is a professor of astronomy at Cornell and author or editor of several books ... lighter side: I particularly liked the "reptilian ritualization of the educational process". The brain is a physical entity, and those who need to see a piece of machinery before they can accept that it performs certain functions will always be tempted by facile explanations of psychological process in terms of neurological structure. As neither psychological process nor behaviour leave fossil evidence, the temptation is all the more irresistible when we ask questions about the evolution of behaviour. Brains themselves, of course, do not fossilise, but skulls do; from ...
159. CHAOS AND CREATION: CHAPTER 02: HIGH ENERGY FROM SPACE [Quantavolution Website]
... the "Thunderer" too; Mars was called the "god of Noise." The full consequences are reserved for treatment in a subsequent volume, but I would mention here the knowledge that we newly possess-- that sights and sounds can have not only far-reaching psychological effects; they can compete with radio-activity in the production of biological, hence ecological effects [20. The meteorological, geological and astrophysical sciences are as yet scarcely positioned methodologically to attend to or even discern such effects. Comets, and to a lesser extent meteoroids ... relate to each other?" Scientific time strives to go beyond human time. When we think of a microsecond, we imagine it or we simply calculate it mechanically. We do the same with a billion years. We take a time to which we can relate psychologically-- a solar year-- and reduce or expand it to where we must deal with it mechanically, without feeling it in our guts. We do the same with energy. We feel a heat in some measure and then extend its measures to degrees ...
... like Sullivan and Asimov. They are not interested in a free and honest exchange of ideas. Their only objective is to distort Velikovsky's ideas, not to examine them. This is inevitable. Velikovsky's work is a devastating assault on modern science, philosophy, religion, psychology, history, the whole package. His opponents understand this very, very well. They are fighting for their lives, and livelihood. And they are losing And they are frantic. It's war. Velikovsky will win eventually, because truth eventually emerges. But ... because, together with their vehement disdain for fundamentalism, they see it purely as a means of validating the biblical miracles. But, how to prove a person's unrelenting "rational" rejection is just that and not, in fact, a manifestation of a widespread collective psychological reaction to ancient cosmic cataclysms? An aspect of this problem has been articulated recently in conventional terms by R. A. Lyttleton. "The history of science is replete with instances where contributions displeasing to the establishment have been rejected, repulsed, and contradicted out ...
