101. Missing Air of Mars [Thunderbolts Website]
... the composition and discharge history of the particular plasma cell in which they were individually formed. After the birth event, the planets also have a history. Each of them took part in several catastrophic events, the most recent of which is commemorated by prehistoric humans in rock art and in myth. It isn't necessary to suppose that Mars has been losing 100 tons of air a day for billions of years because a few thousands of years ago Mars went through a major event that could have stripped it of its atmosphere and oceans all ... once. Plasma interactions were undoubtedly involved; history remembers them as the magical thunder weapon of the warrior hero. But these plasma interactions were much more active than those described above by the Mars Express researchers. Electric discharge will sometimes take away material (as in the 100 tons per day from the Martian atmosphere). But it can also deposit new material in sorted layers. Or even a whole new atmosphere. As space probes have returned data about density of atmospheres among our solar neighbors, astronomers have been surprised in many cases ...
102. Myths, Monuments, and Mnemonics [Horus $]
... , the first human sojourners have been depicted generally as more brute than brain. They lacked true language and their social order was governed by animal instincts and motives. They dressed in animal skins, hunted big game for food, and used natural shelters in caves and rock formations. From these humble beginnings our remote ancestors slowly acquired speech and humanized social organization. Relatively little progress was made in the technology of tools and weapons for thousands of years. Writing and numbers came late in development as did learning the techniques for controlled agriculture ... doing so the traditional biases against the ancient intellect and its sense of reality must be put aside, to be replaced by a more humanized view of early civilizations. HORUS invites its readers to share this viewpoint and enjoy the excitement that comes from new insights into the art, science, and cosmology of the Ancients. ...
103. Pyramids of Tucume, The quest for Peru's forgotten city, by Thor Heyerdahl, Daniel H. Sandweiss and Alfredo Narvaez [SIS C&C Review $]
... spools indicate that he was a 'longears' as Incan nobility was known. Among the burial items was a magnificent green feather cloak. One excavated building is of particular interest. Called the Temple of the Sacred Stone, it was a small U-shaped structure enclosing an upright rock. Its original construction appears to be from the earliest times of the site and it was located at the principal entrance, where it received many valuable offerings, human burials and sacrificed llamas. The standing stone it was built round is similar to many considered sacred ... , which revealed carved friezes. One shows two reed rafts, each containing two birdmen, and a bench shows a line of mythical birds wearing half-moon headdresses and carrying round objects. These appear to be reminiscent of the crouching birdman holding an egg which dominates the religious art of Easter Island. More evidence of contact between the two areas came in the form of a miniature silver paddle unearthed in the Temple of the Sacred Stone. A combination of particular traits identified this as an image of a ceremonial paddle, such as those carried ...
104. You too can in the Yucatan [Horus $]
... identity, however; the deity behind the mask remains unknown. Uxmal- looking south from the Nunnery Quadrangle toward the Pyramid of the Dwarf and the Governor's Palace. While climbing the stairs of the "Dwarf", stamping one's foot produces a ringing tone in the rock, a sound effect giving the illusion that the structure is hollow- Did the Maya use this resonant quality of the limestone stairway for effect during ceremonies performed at this pyramid? The Governors Palace sits atop a large earth-mound platform and seems to be astronomically oriented toward ... /Ticul The next site-visit day involves a late-morning visit to Mayapan, considered to be the last stronghold of the Mayan era. It is a smaller and less frequently visited site than Uxmal but has its own charm and beauty. The effect of the scrub-jungle on the art of the ancient stone masons is particularly evident here. Trees rise from roots buried deep in the displaced limestone blocks; once elegant and brightly painted structures now all but swallowed by Nature. Mayapan- The relentless scrub-jungle gradually destroys the final monuments of Mayan culture. ...

... that we have no intellectual tools to address the question; we lack the 1001 questions that follow the leading question. One would think that we might find a model to consult in paleontology. But the field has not gone far beyond associating some life forms with some rock strata and not even this is done with full microscopy and chemistry on computerized data banks. The leading question, "How many species have existed at a given point in time, or ever, or even at a given place and point in time?" ... persons in Britain in the year 12,000 B. C., what reasons can you give for the fact that only a few scattered stone tools and bones will confront the scientist of today who is working with conventional theories at the present "state of the art?" To answer the question, one must tell what has been discovered in the nature of remains and legends of this period. Then one must say what kinds of events would reduce "then-time" surface evidence to "now-time" surface evidence. Afterwards, ...
106. The Cosmic Mountain [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... this way began the Mixtec kingdom." A central mountain, identified with "the earth's navel," appears also in the myths of the Pima of the southwestern United States. From this mountain the world was populated. (164) The Omaha commemorate the great rock which Wakanda summoned from the waters, at the beginning of the world: the great white rock, Standing and reaching as high as the heavens, enwrapped in mist. Verily as high as the heavens... (165) "The Indians, like ... , so did Osiris: "Osiris sits in judgement in a palace in the Primeval Mound, which is in the centre of the world," writes Clark. (20) "Hail, O Osiris, thou hast received thy sceptre and the place whereon thou art to rest, and thy steps are under thee," reads the Book of the Dead. (21) The hill was the fixed resting place of the central sun, its summit the supreme object of ascension symbolism. The king beseeches the great god: ...
107. A FIRE NOT BLOWN: CHAPTER 12: CATASTROPHE, MYTH AND SKY [Quantavolution Website]
... so the name would mean 'force of Set', or 'presence of Set'. Tin may mean thunderbolt, and Set is the Egyptian Typhon. In Crete, Zeus was worshipped under the name of Velchanos, a word which may mean something like 'god of the rock', or 'god of the cave'. Since the difference in electrical potential manifested by the piezoelectric effect at the time of a severe earthquake would have dwindled through leakage, it was reasonable for people to say that the god died. The death of the ... in attempts by the ancient priest-electricians to describe, explain and exploit celestial phenomena. Monsters intrude, darken the sky, appear to cause the sun to stop or go back in its course, and so on. The dragon is a snake in the sky. In art it is given wings to show that it is the celestial monster which the earthly snake resembles. Examples of imitation are the hair style of Greek kouroi, and the uraeus, cobra, on the head of the pharaoh. The bull symbolises the power of a ...
108. Velikovsky & Saturnists & the Gods [SIS Internet Digest $]
... different lines of evidence that form the basis and motivation for the Saturn-thesis. Here I would include: (1) impossible scenarios described in ancient astronomical texts (Mars being described as the agent of eclipses of the sun, for example); (2) ancient rock art depicting planets/suns in impossible positions (Venus being depicted set within the crescent of Sin, the latter conventionally identified with the Moon); (3) evidence from ancient language impossible to reconcile with the current order of the solar system (see Talbott's ... Saturn Myth for numerous examples); (4) the inordinate role played by the planets in ancient myth and religion, a testament to their decisive influence in ancient consciousness. Thompson's post continues: "these notions absolutely require that the behaviour of the gods as described in myth precisely reconstruct the true dynamic behaviour of the celestial objects associated with them." This is nonsense. Nothing Talbott or I have written supports this statement. It is true that Talbott and I take very seriously the ancient descriptions of the behaviour of the gods ...

... visible at some of these sites. 2.) 'Vitrified forts' in Scotland: a proper appreciation of these sites has been inhibited by a misunderstanding of their nature. They could be seen as evidence for earthquake-proofing in the late Bronze Age. 3.) Cup-and-ring rock carvings in Scotland: one site in the west has yielded reasonably clear evidence for re-carving in the late Bronze Age which just might be signs of unusual cometary activity at that time. 15:15 Prof Irving Wolfe, University of Montréal The 'Kultursturz' At The ... paper, therefore, I will present evidence for what I call a 'Kultursturz' or cultural crisis in which a large number of cultural elements underwent quick and sharp change within the same short period of time. These include the appearance of secular as opposed to strictly religious art, a host of new religions of a new type, new philosophies of a new type, writing, dynastic upheavals, the quick upsurge and removal of several tyrannical regimes, urbanism, new patterns of consciousness, behaviour and dreaming, new types of social organisation ...
