... and eroded impact craters are being discovered by LANDSAT and other satellites (some of these craters are very large: the Hudson's Bay arc, 180 kilometres across, may be one); and so on. [Footnote:*But cf. the article, "Psychology and Andent Astronomical Discovery", by D. Griffard in KRONOS II:4 (Summer 1977), pp. 29-55, especially pp. 29-31. Clube and Napier are rather late in their revelatory experience.- LMG In 1979, in the pages of ... it mean? The context, despite what the "therefore" suggests, does absolutely nothing to make the sentence any more understandable than it is as it stands here now. Your guess is as good as mine as to what it means. Of course in a psychological sense I know well enough what it means. It means something like this: 'About Velikovsky, our thoughts are as clear as mud, because our consciences are likewise; but we have got to get this wretched acknowledgement-business finished somehow!' This book, then ...

... a troop; the flag is also used when swearing to agreements and making promises for the future. The Jews, however, had plenty of banners inscribed with tribal legends and Israelite mottoes. The Ark was no mere banner or image. The Ark would always give psychological consolation, of course. It would indicate by its activity and sounds the comforting presence of Yahweh. In what seemed to be interminable periods of despair and starvation, it lived for its people. Thus: And they departed from the mount of the Lord three ... Ziegler, 28. 66. K. M. Kenyon, Digging up Jericho, London, 1957, 43. 67. Chaim Herzog and Mordecai Gichon, Battles of the Bible, New York: Random House, 1978, 28. Although these military men are psychologically insightful, the several pages that they consign to the Exodus and the Battle of Jericho suffer from "the four sins of modern biblicim": confused chronology; reductionism; primitivism; and uniformitarianism. 68. I think that Herzog and Gichon perceive correctly that the ...
204. Imaginary Worlds: The Debate Heats Up [Aeon Journal $]
... depth of the oceans-- rendering any claims of strikingly close correspondences absurd. But making mountains out of molehills and molehills out of mountains is simply part of the process by which Ginenthal goes about redrawing his mental map of the world to make it conform to his psychological and ideological requirements. And for his third, and final, "caveat": "Because of their burden of ice, both Greenland and Antarctica are in places submerged below sea level. Additionally, Greenland constitutes an island in the shape of a large reversed ... a hit, too, because it isn't submerged now. There is nothing that he would not consider a hit. So it's a meaningless "heads I win, tails you lose" game with him. The circularity of his rationalizations is complete. He is simply psychologically incapable of admitting that any cartographer could ever draw any feature on a map not based on accurate geographic knowledge, regardless of documented examples to the contrary, which he airily dismisses as "irrelevant digressions" at the outset. As for the Guadalquivir, the late ...
205. A Theory of Melancholy [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... A WORKING THEORY FOR THE UNDERSTANDING OF MELANCHOLY AND ITS TREATMENT (Eine Arbeitstheorie zum Verstšndnis der Melancholie und ihre Behandlung) by Dr Immanuel Velikovsky (Palestine Institute for Psychological Research) If a person is full of sorrow he is discharging from his body through the cracks in his eyelids various chemicals. The peculiarity of this phenomenon is normally not regarded as being strange since the process of crying is known to everybody since earliest childhood.- This secretion brings relief. In the case of melancholy, the sick person does not shed any tears. In fact, with the appearance of tears you can expect a change in the course of the illness. Melancholia does not offer any hopes for a successful psychotherapeutical treatment. Even though psychic stimuli may trigger the illness or may even constitute the origin of the illness, there is no doubt nowadays that in the case of melancholia there is also invariably a disorder in the biochemistry. The secretion of tears in grief must be regarded as a depoisoning process; that is why it brings relief. Melancholia is therefore an illness during ...
206. Hardy, Tess and Psychic Scotoma [The Velikovskian $]
... represent his most enduring literary achievement. And so, it is quite puzzling why, toward the end of one of his most mature works, he would have resorted repeatedly to the clumsy, 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 physical defect.(8) A psychological scotoma, then, is the inability to recognise certain facts or to observe certain situations --even though, normally, these should be obvious. This failure ...

... personality, submits to the restrictions of matter,. Saturn is known as the Greater Malefic( is the Lesser Malefic), the bringer of sorrow, and the one who deprives. But Saturn only brings sorrow and deprivation in those areas of a person's life that are based on illusions or unrealistic expectations. Saturn represents the unrelenting aspect of reality that forces the individual to abandon all ideas that are not based on a realistic perception of the material conditions of life. A child is protected by his or her parents from physical and psychological harm. But for self-fulfillment the child must at some time free himself from this protective shield, its parents. Astrologers suggest that the inner being, the self, in a similar way is protected by the personality, the psychological structure envelopping the self, spirit, inner being, or true individual. Through the imaginations, conceptions, and games of the personality, the inner being is protected until that protection is no longer needed and becomes a hindrance for self-fulfillment. Once this stage of development has been reached the outer shell ...
209. Mind and its Methods: A Reflection on Neurotic Science [The Velikovskian $]
... elegance" are still used. The old distinctions between "contingent" and "necessary," "synthetic" and "analytic," are all concepts retained in order to conceal deeply buried meanings that have been historically repressed, in order that the claims of "mind" might supersede the claims of material existence. Concepts found in the methodology of the natural scientists are strung together with painstaking precision to avoid any breakthrough of the rich, compulsive, material irritability that drives these organisms to do their work. And yet, the psychology of the scientist is quite transparent. The need to not know, the need to run away from full disclosure of scientific ground, is blatantly demonstrated in...scientific models that are so beset with repressive language and structures. The scientific community reports that it "purifies" human experience. The scientists claim that when they work, they are somehow transformed, transfigured, transposed and transported. For thousands of years now, the human race has been in intermittent evolution. Historically, we understand that the correlate drive, to involute ...
210. Malleable Memories [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 111: May-Jun 1997 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Malleable Memories The ease with which psychologists can plant false memories in the minds of their subjects-- even savvy college students-- casts clouds over several anomalous phenomena, such as UFO abductions, ball lightning, and sea-monster sightings. Even scientists can be deluded into believing they have seen things in their laboratories. (Remember Blondlot's experiments with N-rays and the several physicists who confirmed his results?) Not that psychologists go around intentionally implanting memories of dubious phenomena. All it takes are suggestion, expectation, and/or paradigm-passion. At a 1997 meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, several psychologists told of their "malleable-memory" experiments. H.L. Roediger III, Washington University, asked students: "...to look at a list of 15 words that included 'bed,' 'dream,' 'blanket,' 'doze,' and 'pillow.' Just over half said afterward that the word 'sleep' ...
