... Notes (Chapter Twenty: Sanctification and Resurrection) 21. THE DEATH OF KINGS Notes (Chapter Twenty-One: The Death of Kings) 22. LIVING WITH ELECTRICITY APPENDIX A APPENDIX B: READING BACKWARDS GLOSSARY Q-CD vol 12: KA, Ch. 20: Sanctification and Resurrection 235 CHAPTER TWENTY SANCTIFICATION AND RESURRECTION WE have seen something of Greek and Roman sacrifices. Chapter Seven reviewed the Greek and Hebrew apotropaic practices- red-haired men being killed to avert the red Typhon, and the driving by the Israelites of a scapegoat into the wilderness. We have also studied the earthing technique (trench filled with water, sprinkling of water and blood, etc.), and details of an Homeric ...
42. "Worlds in Collision" and the Prince of Denmark: II. Hamlet and Meso-American Myth [Journals] [SIS Review]
... father and his brother and had had incestuous feelings towards his mother. Brutus was thus forced to feign insanity to divert the dictator's suspicion that he might be revengeful and dangerous. Then, when the time was right, he revealed his true nature and either killed or expelled the tyrant, later becoming one of the first consuls in the new Roman republic (23). Roman history thus describes a time of political transition; but, whilst the naming of local people and dates gives it an air of historicity, its form is unquestionably mythical, and of a type with those of Arthur, Theseus, Charlemagne, Sargon of Agade and Jesus - unsuspected future kings who are scorned ...
43. The Celestial Ship of North Vol. I [Books]
... make religion come before mythology. The origin was with the Mother, who preceded the Father and who had produced the first Seven Great Stars of the Bear as early Forces born out of space or chaos, called Creative Forces by all ancient peoples. These by the Christians were termed "The Virtues of God ;" in the Greek and Roman churches they were the Seven Archangels, which belong also to the Parsee scriptures. They had under their care and protection men, animals, fire, metal, earth, water and plants. The original Seven have a common origin in Egypt, Akkadia, India, Britain, and New Zealand. Jacob Boehme says of the Feminine producer ...
... From "Mankind in Amnesia" © 1982 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Roman Philosophers In the last century before the present era, Lucretius knew about the catastrophes and wrote about them in his On the Nature of Things. His contemporary, Cicero, the statesman and philosopher of republican Rome, denied the possibility of the planets changing their courses, and declared them to be gods. The divinity of the planets he explained by their occupying the sublime positions and by their unerringly following their paths. "Therefore the existence of the gods is so manifest that I can scarcely deem one who denies it to be of sound mind." This ...
45. The "So-Called" Fixed Sothic Date of Sesostris III, 1872 B. C. [Journals] [Kronos]
... with no need for a 365-day calendar at all. It is in just this way that the Moslem year proceeds on its way with Ramadan and the various feasts corresponding to the lunar cycle, sometimes in summer, sometimes in winter, and nobody seeming to worry. In Egypt, for example, only foreigners, eg., Greeks and Romans (and perhaps Middle Kingdom or Hyksos rulers) would have needed a comparison with their own systems. When we have the decree of Canopus where it states "that feasts which should be celebrated in winter should not be celebrated in summer" by Roman times, then the civil calendar had certainly got out of step. Let us now ...
46. Timna and Egyptian Dates [Journals] [Aeon]
... in height. It was discovered by Benno Rothenberg in 1966 (i .e , much later than the copper works in the Timnna Valley) and excavated in March-June, 1969, and September-October, 1974. The stratigraphy of Timna was established as follows: Strata Historical Context Conventional Dates End of site proven by layer of wind-borne sand Stratum I Roman c. 105 to 235 AD Gap proven by layer of wind-carried sand Stratum II Brief Midianite settlement c. 1150 to 1100 BCE Stratum III 19th Dynasty/20th Dynasty c. 1300 to 1150 BCE Stratum IV 19th Dynasty/18th Dynasty c. 1500 to 1300 BCE Assumed gap of 1500 years. Serious questions about this supposed gap are ...
47. The Cosmic Origins Of Arthur (Book review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Arthur, which show him to be none other than the universal hero, warrior, dragon god known to Greeks as Herakles, a complex figure linked to the planets Mars, Jupiter and Mercury. The association between Stonehenge and Arthur's Round Table then becomes self-evident. Sweeney suggests that Britain was not a cultural backwater when it was invaded by the Romans but a rich, post catastrophic society whose wealth was based on its production of bronze. Following the evidence put forward by John Dayton in Minerals, Metals, Glazing and Man he argues that copper and tin from mines in Devon and Cornwall were the mainstay of the Bronze Age cultures to the east and that Britain was a vital link ...
48. The Catastrophic Substructure of Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra (Part I) [Journals] [Kronos]
... mind of pestilence, death, Egypt and leprosy. Yet, while the defeat of Antony may have overtones of a divine Old Testament holocaust, its consequence, the victory of Octavius, is cast in a New Testament mould. Octavius- Caesar as he is always called in Antony and Cleopatra- was to become Augustus, perhaps greatest of Roman emperors, creator of the Pax Romana that closed the long period of unrest, revolution, and war, with the time of peace in which Christ was to be born. Thus, in the war with Antony, when Antony's allies have deserted and sympathy for him is at its strongest, Caesar redresses the balance by a brief but ...
49. Sicily, Carthage, and the Fall of Troy [Journals] [Kronos]
... home was blocked - not just by stormy seas, but by upheavals and dislocations that deprived the returnees of shelter in their own land. Following the disasters that afflicted the Greek lands, the last of the heroic generation turned into wanderers and pirates, seeking for living space far from their own ravaged habitations.(1 ) Strabo, the Roman geographer, thus described the situation that ensued in the wake of Troy's fall: "For it came about that, on account of the length of the campaign, the Greeks of that time, and the barbarians as well, lost both what they had at home and what they had acquired by the campaign; and so, after ...
... intellectual world is adapted to it; for of these two parts consists the full system of Providence. In the mean tine, what subject can be more worthy the thoughts of any serous person, than to view and consider the rise and fall, and all the revolutions, not of a Monarchy or an Empire, of the Grecian or Roman state, but of an entire World? The obscurity of these things, and their remoteness from common knowledge, will be made an argument by some, why we should not undertake them; and by others, it may be, the very same thing will be made an argument why we should. For my part I think, ...
