71. Caves As Musical Instruments [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 123: May-Jun 1999 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Caves As Musical Instruments In past issues of SF, we have reported how some ancient rock art was intentionally painted on rock faces so that echos, as from a handclap, would not only be unusually loud but have some relation to the painting, as in the clatter of hooves. (SF#86) In a similar vein, some manmade chambers, such as New Grange ( ... ,500 B.C.) were configured to enhance the subjective effects of ritual chanting. (SF#102) A fascinating article in Pour la Science, has described how ancient paintings in some of Europe's famous decorated caves were placed where sound resonated. To illustrate, examine the accompanying illustration of the north wall of the Jeannel Gallery of Portel Cave, in Arlege. The long, looping dotted line indicates the amplitude of resonating sound at a frequency of 95 Hertz, as the long gallery behaves like a giant wind instrument. The ...
72. The Berekhat Ram "Venus" [Aeon Journal $]
... . A two-inch tall statuette of one of those voluptuous females, of which the Willendorf Venus is perhaps the best known example, was discovered in the 1980s by Naama Goren-Inbar, of Hebrew University, at Berekhat Ram in the Golan Heights, Israel. Carved from volcanic rock, the statuette has not weathered well, so that quite a few scholars had formerly expressed doubts concerning its fashioning by the hand of man. Microscopic analysis of the object has since been conducted by Alexander Marshack, of Harvard University, touted as a specialist in ... From: Aeon V:3 (Dec 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents News Flash The Berekhat Ram "Venus" Tania ta Maria Until recently, man's oldest art works were claimed to have originated in Europe 35,000 years ago. It seems that has now changed. Not only have we moved away from Europe, but much farther back than 35,000 years ago. A two-inch tall statuette of one of those voluptuous females, of which the Willendorf Venus is perhaps the best known example, was discovered in the ...

... that fineness of detail had been preserved around the entire rim, there would be a total of 28 bays. Art and artifacts made by prehistoric humans have also left a record of 56- and 28-fold forms. Pictographs and petroglyphs images painted on or pecked into rock faces attest to the occurrence of high-energy plasma discharges witnessed by early peoples. Prehistoric stone circles also replicate the pattern. And the pattern has been passed down in art and architecture.

75. The Milky Way [Aeon Journal $]
... Mountain, upon which sat Saturn as the ancient sun-god. Inasmuch as Saturn and Earth apparently shared a common axis of rotation during that primeval period, Saturn remained stationary in the polar skies, "rising" and "setting" upon the same polar mountain. Neolithic rock art, in fact, records just such an image in abundance on every inhabited continent. (99) These images are routinely interpreted as solar in nature despite the fact that the current sun does not present such an appearance. If this rock art has an ... There is only one way to disentangle the web of confusion which currently distinguishes the burgeoning science of archaeoastronomy: a revaluation of all values, to paraphrase Nietzsche. The ancient cosmos must needs be reconstructed from the countless bits and pieces of ancient myth, ritual, and art, not unlike a paleontologist would reconstruct a dinosaur from a few teeth and bones. All-important here is the comparative method. Only by comparing traditions from around the world is it possible to discover archetypal patterns of historical significance and avoid being misled by local, artificial ...
76. Were The First Americans Australians? [Science Frontiers Website]
... manned by many paddlers. The Bradshaw people obviously were familiar with the sea. No one seems to know when the Brad shaw Culture flourished in Australia or where it came from. It disappeared suddenly, leaving behind perhaps 100,000 Bradshaw "art galleries" decorating rock overhangs along Australian rivers. (Ref. 2) References Ref. 1. Cardich, Augusto; "The First Americans: Were They Australians?" The Mammoth Trumpet, 16:4, March 2001. Cr. C. Davant. Ref. 2 ... virtually identical to some from Australia. Specifically, this artwork consists of "hand negatives" (silhouettes of the artists' hands) and spiral and circular drawings composed of little spots. (Ref. 1) Additionally, a remarkable and entirely distinct form of Australian art-- the famous Bradshaw paintings-- are strangely echoed in the artwork of the Paracus Culture of Peru. (Ref. 2) Two curiously adorned flowing figures from a Bradshaw gallery, Australia It is relevant in the above context that one of the Bradshaw ...
77. The Followers of Horus: Eastern Desert Survey Report. Vol 1, by David Rohl (Review) [SIS C&C Review $]
... not shy in tackling the thorny issues of chronology and whether or not he is judged to have made the case for his re-dating, the massing of comparative detail is impressive and persuasive. The smoking gun for the presence of these Mesopotamians in ancient Egypt is on the rock cliffs of the dry wadis of the Eastern Desert. This volume primarily sets out to meticulously record these rock art sites and this it does with admirable clarity and precision. Around 150 sites are covered in 22 wadis, the result of seven expeditions to the area ... and it aspires to retrace all of the previously recorded sites discovered by Arthur Weigall in 1907 and Hans Winkler in 1936. They believe that they have rediscovered about half of these sites and, in the process, have discovered other previously unrecorded locations. The most frequent and beautiful image is of the high-prowed craft. In all some 240 were logged, many proudly displaying the Horus figurehead- a striking reminder of these foreign settlers. Some 150 pages are devoted to the survey records themselves, all clearly illustrated with drawings and photographs. ...
78. Stellar Ouroboros [Thunderbolts Website]
... eating its tail. An ancient symbol for this figure is the ouroboros. Scholars of comparative mythology have found that ancient themes were inspired by events witnessed in the ancient sky. That these events were extraordinary plasma displays has been corroborated by recent findings in the study of rock art: petroglyphs, petrographs, and geoglyphs rock structures such as Stonehenge reproduce exactly the forms of plasma discharge instabilities. The conclusion is unavoidable that ancient peoples witnessed the effects of a current surge in the circuits connecting Earth, Sun, and galaxy. ... stellar-scale ouroboros around RCW 86 is probably many orders of magnitude more energetic than the purported “enhanced aurora” in the ancient sky of Earth. But in light of all the artistic, spiritual, and philosophical uses to which the ouroboros has been adapted since its first appearance, this image can serve as a reminder of the ouroboros s likely origin in an electric sky.
