191. THE BURNING OF TROY: PART TWO: GEOLOGICAL ISSUES: CHAPTER TWELVE: A FAILED EXCURSION TO THE CAVES OF AQUITAINE [Quantavolution Website]
... accepted. No controversy. Is this science: maybe so. Some complaint about not enough manpower to dig. Not one mention of skies. One American, expatriate in Canada, says unusually, 'Why did these people use the caves?' Practically no interest in psychology. No talk of institutions. I probably initiate (stimulate) one half of the total volume of psychological or theoretical talk, now here, now there, often walking off, never completed. Desultory. As we near Lascaux, I jot down a nearly ... note, written on the bus. I notice how often 2 or more (or all) of belts of deposits in Aquitaine look exactly alike save for a slight color and grain change. If you don't peer at it, it looks like a huge subsoil of the same sand (except here and there are stones). Yet they are dated even in a single profile as far apart as Holocene, Pleistocene, Quaternary, Tertiary and maybe even earlier. (And of course Riss, Wurm, Mendel I, II, ...
192. Focus [SIS C&C Review $]
... along: write an autobiography. Issue No. 4 of Kronos has appeared since the last Review, and will make a valuable addition to the bookshelf of anyone interested in the theories of Velikovsky. The contents of this number range wide over ancient history, archaeology, psychology, astrophysics and a general consideration of the nature of geological and physical science. Particularly valuable are the second part of Eva Danielus' paper on Velikovsky's identification of Hatshepsut and the Queen of Sheba, as supported by the archaeological evidence; "The Origins of Modern ... his own researches will appear in the next issue of the Review. At present he has four major books in preparation: Chaos and Creation, dealing with the earliest catastrophes; Science and Catastrophes, a popularisation of this; Schizophrenia and Primeval Delusions, concerned with the psychological and evolutionary aspects of catastrophes; and The Disastrous Love-Affair of Moon and Mars (a spin-off from the first book), of which sections are reproduced in this issue. \cdrom\pubs\journals\review\v0103\15focus.htm ...

... he opined that such things had happened before (see, e. g. the Morton Prince case, that is described in the next chapter), but that star professors are much too clever and ornery nowadays. Like the time when a large donation to the Psychology Department for the purpose of pursing telepathic research was accepted by Stanford University but diverted to other uses, perhaps to construct bigger and better mazes for running rats. Apropos, unlike rats, professor avoid any mazes built for them and devise their own crooked ways. ... with contributions to quantavolution (his name being mistakenly mispelled by the compositor as "Queenberg," for instance, in itself sufficient cause for paranoiac fury), and a wrong middle initial for Earl R. Milton, who received 'Earl S. ', a complimentary psychological mistake tying him to a dear old professor of Deg, Earl S. Johnson, the same to whom The Divine Succession is dedicated. Writes Greenberg: After going through half of the text of Chaos and Creation, the Citations, and Bibliography, I have ...
194. Myth and the Origin of Religion [Pensee]
... History, p. 22. 5. M. Eliade, The Sacred and the Profane (Harper Torchbooks, 1957), p. 95. 6. Eliade, The Sacred and the Profane, p. 98. 7. C. G.

" (1). (Emphasis added.) This definition of myth, or at least religious myth, excludes the possibility of extracting from myth any historical reality. It finds myth to possess verbal existence only, confining it to the realm of ancient intellectualism or psychological phenomena which occur "in here" rather than "out there" in the world of physical existence. Almost every theory of interpretation of myth since Durkheim, stripped of its rhetoric, accepts this definition. Franz Boas. Durkheim's reduction of myth to a verbal ...
195. GODS FIRE: CHAPTER ONE: PLAGUES AND COMETS [Quantavolution Website]
... commentaries of the Jews, some old writings that are based upon writings no longer extant, and many modern archaeological discoveries in Egypt and the "Lands of the Bible." Further involved in the study of Exodus are the social sciences, such as the anthropology and psychology of religion, the history of science, and the sociology of organization, and even the natural sciences, especially geology, the atmospheric sciences and astronomy. All are usable at various stages of investigation. When the facts are few, and their reference, the ... birds of prey of different kinds that the light of the sun and the moon was darkened as they circled through the air." [32 In great natural disasters- earthquakes, floods, volcanism- the beasts, both wild and domestic, are driven by their psychological and physiological needs to invade the haunts of humans. If the Bible does not include this, one must conjecture it; it is a logical event, not exaggerated in the startled eyes of the people experiencing it. Figure 2. Pestilence, locusts, fire ...
196. Sin and the Control System [Kronos $]
... publish the Anthology in its entirety-- the Ed.) Copyright© 1975 by Lewis M. Greenberg and Warner B. Sizemore. (The above will also appear as a chapter of a yet to be completed multi-volume work on the origin, history, and psychology of religion, by Cardona, Myers, Greenberg and Sizemore.) Why We Quote from the Mythologies of the New World Since uniformitarian scholars do not believe in cataclysms and in the cosmic origins of religions, they can seldom catch a religion at the precise moment ... were obviously incapable of making accurate observations of the phenomena of nature. In other words, science simply pronounces the ancient history of the human race to be non-history. In this way, the control system is then made more secure; and hence we can see the psychological roots of the resistance of both orthodox religion and science to Velikovsky's dredging up of buried memories. The Extension of the Control System The need for the control system was created by cosmic catastrophe. Now, if the coverage of the system had been restricted to the ...
... be a catastrophist motif of the recovery of mankind and the attainment of new greatness following a global conflagration. Author's Postscript: The foregoing pages constitute the first installment of a series of articles. Forthcoming installments will treat the following mythological subjects: physical, social, and psychological characteristics of the Golden Age topographic and institutional consequences of The Fall disguised recapitulations of both The Golden Age and The Fall in subsequent human behavior.... to be continued.

Either way, emphasis is placed on the apparent irrationality of myth, a theme which dominated much Victorian mythological commentary and has persisted well into our century. Most analysts since the time of psychologist Wilhelm Wundt have described myth as highly imaginative, and many today would agree with anthropologist Ruth Benedict that "myth, like... folklore, is... wishful thinking".(20) While not denying the isomorphism of dream and myth, ...
198. Of Lessons, Legacies, and Litmus Tests: A Velikovsky Potpourri (Part One) [Aeon Journal $]
... Home¦ Issue Contents Of Lessons, Legacies, and Litmus Tests: A Velikovsky Potpourri (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 tell me that their private theory must be true because it sounds so right."-- ... experience with Dr. Velikovsky has made me wonder whether his rejection by scholars was due, as 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 because a person with scientific interests should not cross boundaries and burden himself with the intricacies of the ...

... resources to defend and go on with his work. He was then obliged to declare himself in 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 two men had a cat-and-dog [relationship with each other. Mill had been a prodigy in his ... I believe that this book is of major importance, and that it will not only attract the 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. Carl Sagan and Immanuel Velikovsky, by Charles Ginenthal, is a book of solid integrity and quality, and will receive wide attention. I recommend its publication most strongly and ...

... the history of the true god be rejected. If one relies upon the scientific history of religion, one would be led to the conclusion that gods do not exist. Luckily for those who yearn for gods, one can go beyond the history of religion, to psychology and philosophy. There they will learn that the human mind is basically limited. Its perceptions and condition are structurally bounded. To exceed this structure they must rely only upon corollaries of the cosmic proof: 1) extension of some hitherto neglected remote recesses of the ... revelations of the first ages, could endure the historicity of the apocalypse. It is possible to absorb the theories of quantavolution solely in the form of science, eschewing all contact with the religious experience as truth, while pursuing every avenue to religious experience as sociological and psychological fact. That is, quantavolution would only ask of its students that they exercise its hypotheses and evidence according to the current general methodology of science. This would be the more comfortable and easier choice. Alternatively, however, one may confront the issue of the ...
