51. The Ship of Heaven [Aeon Journal $]
... chariot" itself was originally nothing but the cosmic wheel.) So too did the Chinese Huang-ti (identified with the planet Saturn) possess a magical vehicle that served as both ship and chariot. (35) It is not surprising, then, to find Scandinavian rock carvings showing the wheel of the sun resting in the cosmic boat, or to discover that-- from Assyria to Britain and from India to Polynesia-- images of cosmic ships either contained wheels or were set on wheels and conveyed around dry land in the ... symbolized. My claim has been that the objects and events of myth point to a coherent and ultimately very simple set of celestial forms. For the sake of clarity, we will call these forms of the polar configuration the archetypes and their mythological representations in ritual and art the symbols. The archetypes, then, evolve only in the sense that the original celestial forms evolved through a series of transformations. The symbols, on the other hand, though inspired originally by tangible objects in the sky, are human concepts subject to endless ...

53. Maori Legends about Historical Impact Disaster [SIS Internet Digest $]
... as the mysterious destructive fires from space. Traditions tell of stones and fires falling from space, which destroyed the forests, the Moa, other birds and the greater part of mankind. Other forms of history leaving techniques include place names, songs, poems, and rock art; all support a catastrophic event that largely destroyed the Moa Hunter Culture. One poem and one dirge exists which relate the destruction of the Moa Hunter culture with the splitting of the horns of the moon which fell to earth causing this mayhem. Rock art ... today which depicts men fleeing from falling chevrons, which have the horns of the chevron split. A further petroglyph exists which shows a man hands upheld in fear looking at a new moon with the lower horn of the moon split. Other motif or logo type petroglyphs exist which support a catastrophe. I will describe one, which depicts a Lizard on a crescent, on a crescent with a split horn. The lizard is the representational form of the God Tumokomoko the god of starvation, death and devastation, the new moon represents ...
54. The Cup-and-ring Motif In America [Science Frontiers Website]
... 1988 volume of the Occasional Papers of the Epigraphic Society is at hand. As usual, it is chock full of ancient symbols, motifs, and writings, many of which come from anomalous times and/or places. R.W.B. Morris, an authority on prehistoric rock art, has contributed an article comparing the cup-and-ring motif, as found in Great Britain, with that found in North America. Since this stereotype motif decorates the rocks of all continents, save Antarctica, and since the hey-day of cup-and-ring engraving was 3-5 millennia ago ... this unique design suggests the worldwide diffusion of culture thousands of years ago. A cup-and-ring engraving consists of a hollow or cup anywhere from 4 to 30 inches in diameter, surrounded by 1 to 9 rings. The rings may be gapped, with a narrow groove running through the gaps from the outside. (See the illustration,) Cups-and-rings have been found at over 700 sites in Great Britain. Most date between 2200 and 1600 B.C. The cup-and-ring is much rarer in the States. A few are known from Alabama, California ...

58. Ancient Acoustical Engineering [Science Frontiers Website]
... Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Ancient acoustical engineering In SF#86/43*, we reviewed R. Waller's acoustical measurements at ancient rock-art sites in Europe, North America, and Australia. Waller claimed that some rock art was intentionally placed where echos from the walls are not only exceptionally loud but are also qualitatively related to the art's subject matter, such as running hoofed animals. The Newgrange chamber, with acoustical nodes and antinodes. Antinode occur at the chamber's stone walls. ... a similar venture, R.G. Jahn et al have taken sound generators and meters into the chambers of six ancient structures and measured their acoustical properties. The sites selected were: Wayland's Smithy, Chun Quoit, and Cairn Euny, all in the U.K.; Newgrange, and Cairns L and I, Carbane West, all in Ireland. All of these sites date back to about 3,500 BC. The chambers were all bounded by roughly hewn stones, but they had very different configurations. Newgrange was cruciform (see sketch ...
59. Notes and Queries [SIS C&C Review $]
... diorite and aragonite. I was quite astonished at the workmanship and mystified as to how they had done it- the handles were perfectly symmetrical, about 50mm wide, and each handle had a hole approximately 3-4mm diameter drilled right through it. Gabbro is a rough igneous rock, aragonite is a hard carbonate and diorite is one of the hardest igneous rocks. If the relative dating is correct (if!), it confirms that the earliest Egyptians were accomplished stoneworkers, with hard tools and capable of machining rock into precise, delicate ... plenty of labour- and time was not important. The following extract from Prehistoric Greece& Cyprus by Hans Gunter Buchholz and Vassos Karageorhis (Phaidon Press, London, 1973), gives some more information. 'The Egyptians were considered past masters and superb teachers in the art of making durable vessels of hard stone [Lucas, Ancient Egyptian Materials and Industries, 1959, 480 ff.. But increasing research on the 'pre-ceramic', i.e. the time before the discovery of pottery, makes it ever clearer that other peoples also developed ...

... days of the Solar System knocked the atmosphere off. The trouble is that a reasonably dense atmosphere is theoretically required to keep the planet warm enough to have all the flowing water scientists are convinced was on Mars much later. Further, the presence of outcrops of olivine rock indicate that the planet has been dry and cold for up to 3 Byrs because it weathers in warm moist environments. The argument against recent water grows stronger: an observation of apparently fresh-looking gullies running down from a crater ridge led to claims of flash flooding by ... 90-117, Scientific American July 00, p. 96, April 00, p. 12, March 00, p. 83, New Scientist 20.5.00.pp. 30-34, 4.3.00, p. 4, 6.5.00, p. 35, Sunday Times 10.10.99 The earliest signs of art and symbolic thinking used to be considered to be those of Cro-Magnon man in Europe from 32,000 years ago, then redating of Australian finds pushed this date back another 30,000 years.
