71. The Milky Way [Journals] [Aeon]
... many ancient peoples believing that departed souls transmigrate to the region of the Sun. (50) Closely connected to the idea of the Milky Way as a "road of souls" is the widespread belief in a Celestial River across which the dead (or their souls) must cross to reach heaven. Such a belief is well-attested in the Pyramid Texts, where the celestial river was known as the Winding Waterway. A typical passage from these most ancient of written texts is as follows: "You have traveled the Winding Waterway in the north of the sky as a star which crosses the sea beneath the sky." (51) Here, as is customary in these texts ...

73. Magnetism and Axial Tilts [Books] [de Grazia books]
... Mill , indeed this is the book's theme. Third, not only the Sun, the North Star and the constellations, but also and especially the Moon and the planets were often objects of sacred (which is to say, all-important) architecture. This point has been stressed in numerous works on many cultures. The ancient pyramids of several countries, the design of Greek temples, the Hebrew Tabernacle and the Temple of Solomon - these and all other ancient masterpieces were like wedding rings uniting Earth and Heaven. Fourth, when the heavenly bodies deviated from their customary paths or when the Earth shifted its position with respect to them, then the plans of temples, ...
74. Forum [Journals] [Pensee]
... . The environmental crisis which, given present systems, can only get worse, leaves us no other choice. In these terms, Velikovsky's method and insights, in helping us to understand our world and cosmos much better, significantly enhance our efforts to improve our situation. Charles Konigsberg Professor of Political Science Alaska Methodist University Anchorage, Alaska THE PYRAMIDS AND EARTH'S AXIS To The Editor: It is not true, as William Mullen stated in his footnote (Pensee, winter, 1973, p. 1 5), that "several of the pyramids contain a long narrow chute .. . rising from their inner chambers at a 30 degree angle" and that these chutes "point ...
75. The Reality of Extinctions [Journals] [Aeon]
... one which is consistent with midsummer watching during a period of wobble. If this proposal of wobble is valid, one should expect supporting data. Egypt springs to mind immediately as a sun worshipping society and as one which was building very large monuments at the start of the megalithic era. One hears so much about the perfect alignment of the pyramid of Cheops that the others tend to be overlooked. The pyramid of Cheops is, in fact, the only one which lines up so well with the cardinal points. Other major pyramids, both pre- and post-dating it, are out by as much as nine degrees. Then we have later evidence. Latitude fixes made by the ...
... take steps to escape from a threatened region. I believe that the ancient world, or rather the highest placed of that time, were made aware in advance of the impending disaster called the Flood, and that they took steps beforehand to prepare a means of escape. This great urge was, I suggest, the real explanation of the pyramids of Egypt and elsewhere. In Egypt, Mexico, and Peru, an ancient and scientific race of mariners built pyramids, all on the sarne general principle although some were more perfect in their structure and perfection of detail than others. The impulse which caused these great edifices to be erected is mentioned by Josephus, and confirmed in the ...
77. The Opening of The Mouth Ritual - Part II [Journals] [Aeon]
... word mouth' may be here a figurative expression, but judging from other parts of the text we are probably intended to understand it literally."  In ancient Egyptian texts spitting, "was certainly regarded as a religious act of no small significance [and] according to a legend which is at least as old as the Pyramids, the god Tem had had union with himself; he spat, and his spittle was the gods Shu and Tefnut."  As Talbott remarked: "The original creation myth is the story of a unified and singular god- the God One'- giving birth to the many...these secondary powers are ...
78. The Genesis of Israel and Egypt by Emmett Sweeney [Journals] [SIS Review]
... back to Imhotep, he dates Djoser to c. 930BC. After noting that the art, culture and general political situation are similar in all three Intermediate Periods, he concludes that the three IPs are one and the same, caused by the same upheaval' which ended the Early Dynastic period at the end of the Third Dynasty. The pyramid builders of the Fourth Dynasty were no more than (Asiatic) lords of the Delta'. Lastly, the period of The Judges is discussed and Hercules emerges as the alter ego of Samson. In a final Epilogue, Sweeney builds on these identifications and the work of Velikovsky to produce his own revision of ancient history, unshackled by ...
79. Noah's Ark -- Its Geometry [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... , vertically through the vessel, a bit forward of midship. All other dimensions were verified port and starboard.) This paper is concerned with: The raw data of the measured vessel dimensions, Records in ancient literature, and The fact that both the unit of measure and the golden ratio are common to this artifact and to the Great Pyramid of Giza. Figure 11 shows an exact scale drawing of the dimensions of the artifact measured by David Fasold and described in his book, "The Ark of Noah" Wynwood Press, New York, NY, 1988. Both the metal detector and a frequency generator were used to locate the discrete positions of iron masses. (Most ...
80. The Ship of Heaven [Journals] [Aeon]
... orb, Saturn's celestial dwelling presented a brightly lit half, so that as the Earth turned on its axis, earthbound observers saw two revolving semicircles of light and shadow moving in a vast pathway around the stationary orb of Saturn. Hence, our model implies that the ship was part and parcel of the sun god's enclosure. In the Egyptian Pyramid Texts, King Unas announces, "I revolve round heaven like Ra, I sail round heaven like Thoth." (23) While Ra's image is the enclosed sun , the common symbol of Thoth is the crescent-enclosure . Allowing the one image to explain the other, we see that Unas does not here engage in two separate acts ...
