121. The Ring of Comets and Meteorites Encircling Jupiter [Kronos $]
... Byurakan Observatory in Soviet Armenia, cited the earlier theoretical work of Prof. S. K. Vsekhsvyatskii whose prediction of a ring around Jupiter was first published in 1960 in a journal called Izvestia of the Armenian Academy of Sciences (Physical-Mathematical Series). Ambartsumyan quoted the following passage from the relevant paper by Vsekhsvyatskii: "The existence of active ejection processes in the Jupiter system, demonstrated by comet astronomy, gives grounds for assuming that Jupiter is encircled by comet and meteorite material in the form of a ring similar to the ring of Saturn." Despite the fact of his priority, Vsekhsvyatskii's name has remained conspicuously absent from the scientific literature pertaining to Jupiter. It is to be hoped that the appearance in KRONOS of the following material by the Russian astronomer will rectify this situation to a considerable extent.-- LMG Visual observations of the planets, such as Jupiter, Saturn, and their satellites, indicate that processes of an eruptive or volcanic nature (white spots, the red spot, the volcanos of Rees(e), changes on the surfaces of ...
122. "Limited Fusion" and "Anode-Stars" [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... was referring to the hypotheses either; (a) that the Sun was originally part of a binary system and that its partner was disrupted by an invading third star which has remained in the disrupted system, or (b) that the gas giant planets contain heavy element cores created by "limited fusion" processes within them. Neither of these hypotheses is incompatible with Juergens' electromagnetic model. Concerning (a), Juergens himself has suggested such a model in the pages of the SIS Review.(1) He suggested that Saturn, with Earth as one of its satellites, was the invading star to a Sun-Jupiter binary. Juergens saw no conflict between this theory and his electromagnetic model, and neither do I. In the same article, Juergens discussed Saturn as an electrically-fuelled star within the context of his electromagnetic theory.(2) In the 3 years since writing my "Father of the Gods" draft, I have come to accept Juergens' model of Saturn (with Earth as its satellite) rather than Jupiter as the invading star.

123. The Age of Purple Darkness [Aeon Journal $]
... Roger Ashton Scientific Problems The Purple Darkness is a phase of mythical history with which a longer paper will deal in more detail.To be analyzed are the astrophysical, geophysical, biological, and other implications of the darkness with which myth maintains that creation began. The present essay is, in effect, a preview that surveys a few aspects of larger problems with as much independent treatment as seems possible. The total context forms, like knowledge, an indivisible whole, so that only parenthetically can the interlinked commencement and end of the Age of Saturn be given isolated scrutiny. Nevertheless, this essay is not premature, since it invokes previously unconducted tests whose outcome will enrich scientific knowledge in any event, regardless of the truth or untruth of myth. Tales of Primeval Darkness The very earliest human traditional memories are, in a sense, the phases of developing awareness. Human misperception of causality has turned the narrative into the phases of creation by a conscious agency. Dwardu Cardona has collected many references in myth to a time of darkness with which creation was humanly perceived to have ...
124. The Ship of Heaven [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon I:3 (1988) Home¦ Issue Contents The Ship of Heaven David Talbott This is a follow-up article to my earlier "Reconstructing the Saturn Myth" and "On Testing the Polar Configuration" (AEON I: 1-2). It is assumed that readers have read these articles and are familiar with the general context of the theory discussed in the following pages. Introduction In two previous essays, I have outlined a theory of the Saturnian age, claiming that only a few thousand years ago (some time before the dawn of civilization) the Earth participated in a planetary system unlike anything known today. Though all of modern science presumes the ancient sky to have looked much like our sky today, I have argued that early man witnessed a remarkable assembly of planets moving close to the Earth and presenting a spectacular apparition in the heavens. I have called this apparition the polar configuration, and suggested that its tangible forms are mirrored in all of ancient myth and symbol. In fact, the history of this celestial apparition was the history ...
125. Planetary Observations of the T'ang Dynasty [SIS C&C Review $]
... upon episodes of celestial catastrophism that may have occurred during the period from the beginning of the European Dark Ages to the era of the Black Death in the 14th Century and maybe beyond that. In explanation of such episodes, astronomers such as Clube have suggested that periodic terrestrial encounters with meteoric maelstroms- perhaps engendered by comets- have induced such catastrophes. In my researches of astronomical observations of the time, I have found evidence that may suggest other scenarios. Here, I will introduce a significant portion of this evidence anomalous observations of Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus, and Mercury made during the Tang Dynasty in China (618 AD- 906 AD). To my knowledge, no one has yet compared these observations with retrocalculated positions of the planets, or critically analysed them. These observations appear in Edward H. Schafer's Pacing The Void, Tang Approaches To The Stars, University of California Press, Berkeley, 1977. Schafer's own source seems to the Tang Shu, the Tang dynasty annals. Though he apparently did the work of converting Tang dates into ...
126. A RENAISSANCE SATURN [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon IV:3 (Dec 1995) Home¦ Issue Contents A Renaissance Saturn Maureen Pelta The opening decades of the sixteenth-century witnessed a tremendous upheaval in Italian cultural and political life. All roads led once again to Rome, as theologians, statesmen, literary men and artists of every kind converged on the eternal city, seeking employment from a papal court which had begun to assert its authority as a temporal power. The Emilian city of Parma, desirable both for its strategic location in northern Italy and its agricultural abundance, possessed undeniable military attractions for papal policy-makers of the period. Although it is perhaps not surprising to discover that these years coincided with some of the most turbulent in Parma's history, they also attest to a remarkable burgeoning of artistic activity. Indeed, the ambitious building programs and lavish adornment of monastic interiors throughout the city during this time suggest something of a contest between its various ecclesiastical institutions.

127. Mons Veneris [Aeon Journal $]
... "Lord of the sunset." (49) A closely related epithet is Lugul-du-su-a: "King who effects the Sunset." (50) Once again we are presented with a glaring anomaly: What, if anything, does the planet Mars have to do with the site of the sunset in the west? In the current arrangement of the Solar System, the answer is simply "nothing." In apparent recognition of this anomaly, some scholars have sought to question the literal meaning of these epithets. (51) Saturn A survey of the Mesopotamian traditions surrounding the ancient sun-god reveals one anomaly after another. Most baffling, perhaps, is the identification of Shamash with the planet Saturn, widely attested in Babylonian astronomical texts. (52) In a recent study of astronomical conceptions in the ancient Near East, Koch-Westenholz summarized the several attempts to explain Saturn's identification as the ancient sun-god in these words: "Parpola suggests that this identification may be due to an association of Saturn's Akkadian name, derived from the root kun, with kittu, 'justice' ...

129. The Ankh [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. VII No. 3 (Spring 1982) Home¦ Issue Contents The Ankh Dwardu Cardona Copyright (C) 1982 by Dwardu Cardona 1. Saturn I have recently shown why Velikovsky's identification of the Hindu god Shiva as a personification of the planet Jupiter should be abandoned in favor of an identification as Saturn.(1) I have also presented evidence which indicates that the original hermaphrodite deity of ancient man was not Venus, as Zvi Rix had earlier argued,(2) but, once again, Saturn.(3) As I have already pointed out, a good example of the androgynous Saturn can be seen in Indic images which depict Shiva, under the name Ardhanarisvara, as being half male and half female.(4) H. Baumann, in describing one of these images, drew attention to the sign depicted on the deity's genitals "which we can recognise as the ancient Egyptian-Coptic ankh hieroglyph, but in a horizontal position: [* !* image".(5) "The dividing line which we ...
130. The Paleo-Saturnian System [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon VI:1 (Feb 2001) Home¦ Issue Contents The Paleo-Saturnian System Michael Bar-Ron, from Jerusalem, Israel, writes: I am a young student of Torah with a degree in biological anthropology, having a good background in paleontology and Middle Eastern history. On the other hand, my background in physics, electronics, and mathematics is somewhat poor, making it difficult for me to assess the strength of the Saturn thesis on these merits. In the meantime, I labor under a willing suspension of disbelief. As I become more familiar with the already-vast sea of articles and stated opinions concerning Velikovskian catastrophism and electrical interpretations of astronomical phenomena, I am able to descry both strengths and weaknesses in the Saturn theory. Thus, for instance, having read excerpts from Dwardu Cardona's autobiographical essay, [11 as well as other papers on the subject, I couldn't help drawing certain conclusions from the following points: Cardona cited a tradition that speaks of mankind having originated in Earth's north polar region. [12 Lynn Rose identified the Afar Triangle of ...
