31. A Permeability of Boundaries [SIS Internet Digest $]
... it branches into diverse territory to explore the boundaries between disciplines and researchers exploring art, religion and folklore. In recent years these themes have become more prominent and, potentially, the boundaries more permeable. Four themes will be explored in four sessions over two days: rock art; archaeology and art theory; images through time; art, religion and magic.

... original meaning was 'ka flows', implying that the oracular force is appearing or present. Latin delubrum is a shrine. It may be 'Ge lubet', the earth goddess pleases. Ge, or Gaia, was the earliest deity at Delphi, associated with the rock and the effects of earthquake and lightning.

35. Is Early Bronze the Time of the Exodus? [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History V:2 (July 1983) Home¦ Issue Contents INTERACTION Is Early Bronze the Time of the Exodus? Marvin Luckerman Professor Emmanuel Anati, an Italian expert on rock art, lectured recently at UCLA, "Har Karkom: A Holy Mountain in the Desert of Exodus." Surveying in the Negev Mountains, he had explored a mountain called Har Karkom which had many examples of rock art, one of which was particularly surprising. It depicted a series of worshipers, but instead of a ... there was only a slash where the figure of a bull or some other deity should have been shown. After working at Har Karkom a few years Dr. Anati discovered a platform with twelve menhirs. Exodus 24 states that a platform with twelve pillars was erected. On top of the mountain is another rock formation that would fit Exodus 33, where God covered Moses with a rock protection. It is very curious that these remains are dated not to the Late Bronze Age-and-- alas for me-- not MBIIC but early ...

... in a jumbled pattern. Now it has been discovered that the pattern is not so jumbled after all, there being a distinct linear arrangement of alternate polarisation on the southern highlands- just as on Earth. Here the pattern is taken as proof that, as molten rock erupted and spread from mid-ocean ridges in the process of plate tectonics it took on the direction of the Earth's magnetic field and that this must therefore have reversed polarity at intervals. As the Earth's magnetic field is thought to be generated by a spinning iron core, ... have far more genetic diversity within one group than the entire human population of today. Autistic artists? New Scientist 12.12.98, p. 10 An uncanny resemblance between the drawings of a pre-speech stage autistic child and European cave paintings has led one researcher to suggest that cave art was produced by people with underdeveloped minds. Just as the child's abilities declined with the acquisition of speech the less skilful cave paintings at the end of the ice age may indicate that Stone Age humans had begun to evolve language. Needless to say, the theory ...

... together all countries from the ends of the sea to the land of Kheta," according to the Egyptian scribe (and we may notice that the Troad abuts the Dardenelles). The Etruscans developed and introduced monumental tomb architecture to Italy, underground vaults cut into the rock and later becoming great halls of the dead. Huge tumuli, like cathedral domes, spread out into the countryside toward the Appennines. Accumulations of earth rose like small hills that have been compared with the tumulus burials of Lydia and Phrygia-- but on a ... they come from, we may wonder'! The barbarian north? The Semitic south? Or Anatolia? Velikovsky identified the Hittites with the Chaldeans, and the Chaldeans in turn with the Urartians, 4 and claims that "striking similarities" occur between Hitttite and Urartian art. Khaldis (or Khaldia) was a Urartian deity recorded by Sargon II following his capture of the city of Musasir (site unknown) around 714 B.C. 5 As the chief deity of the captured city its image was ritualistically removed from its shrine, signifying ...

Mass concentrations, or mascons, are found in circular maria surrounded by rings of mountains. On the far side, however, large craters lack the basaltic rock filling of near side ones and the crust is thought to be 40 km thicker.

Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 117: May-June 1998 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Aliens, Mystery Races, Or Aborigines? Some of Australia's rock art-- the Wandjina paintings-- depicts humanoids in fulllength gowns with strange halos encircling their heads. Those favoring the "ancient astronaut" theory assure us that the Wandjina figures are those of alien visitors! The so-called Bradshaw paintings don't fit in the "alien" category but they are so interesting that we choose to ... one here. It raises three problems: (1) The slim, flowing human figures remind one more of the Tassili rock art found in Africa's Sahara rather than that of the Australian Aborigines; (2) The objects at the left are enigmatic and technical-looking; and (3) The symbols (?) at the top are undeciphered. The article at hand from Antiquity does not attempt to interpret the Bradshaw art. Instead, it discusses the social factors that mold the interpretation of the Wandjina and Bradshaw paintings. When Europeans ...
