101. In the Beginning -- A Review [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... beginning; we can only enter the theater at what may have been the third or fourth act. Velikovsky begins with Hebrew cosmology to claim that, prior to Genesis, the Earth underwent earlier catastrophes and that, within human memory, there were seven such creations. These were "sun ages" to be identified with the "Moon, Saturn, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Mars" in that order, or are more appropriately "planet ages." He discussed these ages in Worlds in Collision as "The World Ages" and "The Sun Ages." Hence, his view is that each of the seven planets affected the Earth at some time in the remote ...
102. The Origin of Velikovsky's Comet [Journals] [Kronos]
... . In a series of essays, beginning with the present one, we intend to outline some aspects of ancient Venus symbolism generally overlooked so far. Our study will take us back to the mythical age of "beginnings". We will find much support for Velikovsky's claim of a cometary Venus - and also a surprising and crucial connection with Saturn. Though our investigation will question certain assumptions of Worlds in Collision, we think the evidence will help to substantiate Velikovsky's underlying theory of celestial catastrophe, in which the primary players are planets. 2. The Saturn Myth In Worlds in Collision, Velikovsky presented the last two acts of what he claimed to be a much longer drama of ...
103. A DYNAMICAL OBJECTION TO GRUBAUGH'S POLAR CONFIGURATION [Journals] [Aeon]
... analysis.) Grubaugh attempts to show that the maintenance of his planetary "alignment is feasible according to the laws of Newtonian gravitation" (top of p.40). Note that only gravitational forces enter into his orbit computations; magnetic interactions are only invoked to precess the earth's spin axis at 360 /yr to keep it pointed at Saturn. The paper shows that the radial (from the sun) gravitational-force components give the required centripetal acceleration for Jupiter and Saturn to maintain same-period (synchronous) circular orbits around the sun. This part of his theory is basically correct; Appendix A below derives slightly more exact requirements on the planetary distances. But Grubaugh's paper gives no analysis ...
104. The Cosmic Origin of the Swastika [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon IV:5 (Nov 1996) Home | Issue Contents The Cosmic Origin of the Swastika Dwardu Cardona See Note * below. 1. SATURN In Sanskrit, the emblem we know as the swastika is called pramantha. The word also means "fire-drill". (1 ) According to Robert Graves, it is this Sanskrit word that lies behind the name of the Greek Prometheus. In Greek, "Prometheus" means "forethought" but, according to Graves, the name may really have originated "in a Greek misunderstanding of the Sanskrit word pramantha, the swastika, or fire-drill, which he had supposedly invented, since Zeus Prometheus at Thurii was shown ...
105. Discussion on Wal Thornhill & Ev Cochrane's papers [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of a discharging plasma focus device discharging. Birkeland currents run from the central cylindrical conductor to the outer concentric cylindrical conductor and they space themselves equally so that it looks like radiant streamers. The streamers can rotate, giving various swastika and whirling effects. The streamers follow the field lines, which in the polar configuration curve away from Venus towards Saturn. So, the appearance of Venus from Earth as a radiant flower or 8-fold star will only work in the polar configuration, because the magnetic field has to stem radially outwards, symmetrically, which it wouldn't do if Venus was orbiting Saturn equatorially. The appearance from the Earth would be just like a flower, with the Birkeland currents ...
106. The Saturn Thesis (Part 2) [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon IV:5 (Nov 1996) Home | Issue Contents The Saturn Thesis (Part 2)An In-Depth Interview with David Talbott- (Continued) AEON: We interrupted our previous interview (1 ) at a very interesting juncture in which you stressed certain global pictographic examples of what you called the Radiant Venus. What else can you tell us concerning these pictographs, which are surprisingly similar from one land to another? Talbott: I've used the phrase Radiant Venus for a wide-range of mythical and symbolic images suggesting a sphere in the center of a much larger sphere, with luminous streamers radiating out from that smaller sphere across the face of the larger one. ...
107. Planetary Identities: II The Mythology of Homer [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... world-wide." Was Hades, then, the sun? Yes - but not the Sun we know today since Helios was the Saturnian sun of old [8 ]. This, also, might come as a surprise to some but, in reality, it should not. After all, the ancient Greeks said it themselves: Helios was Saturn [9 ], and therefore so was Hades, and it is no fault of the Greeks if modern mythologists have preferred to ignore their statements and identify Helios, instead, as the Sun. As for additional ties between Hades and Saturn, see Ev Cochrane's recent paper on the subject in which further references are supplied  ...

... above, I will say nothing further since this is a topic that is best reserved for a separate paper. What concerns us in this discussion is the identity of Jormungand. Who, or what, did this entity represent? Circular serpent motif on the interior of a food basin from Sikyatki in the South-western United States. Reproduced from The Saturn Myth  with the kind permission of David N. Talbott The water-enclosing serpent from the Codex Cortesianus (illustration: D. Cardona) 3. The Encircling Serpent Jormungand was called the serpent of Midgard because he encircled Midgard. This came about when Odin, fearful of Jormungand's ever-growing stature flung, the serpent into the sea that ...
