131. Thoth Vol. I, No. 14 May 21, 1997 [Thoth Website]

THOTH A Catastrophics Newsletter VOL I, No. 14 May 21, 1997 EDITOR: Michael Armstrong PUBLISHER: Walter Radtke CONTENTS: EDITORIAL SECTION...Michael Armstrong THE MYTH OF THE CENTRAL SUN (4)...David Talbott HYAKUTAKE X-RAYS...News Item Submitted by Ian Tresman MORE VENUS DIALOGUE...Wal Thornhill New URL Section---- Quote of the day: Up from Earth's Centre through the Seventh Gate I rose, and on the Throne of Saturn sate; And many a Knot unravel'd by the Road; But not the Master-knot of Human Fate. Omar Khayam, Rubaiyat quatrain XXXI Submitted by Pam Hanna---- EDITORIAL SECTION Michael Armstrong (email@example.com) In the second issue of THOTH we published a brief quote showing that Johnathan Swift had a knowledge of the ancient Saturn myth. Swift shows in various other passages that he was aware of remembered catastrophes involving Mars and Venus as well. The quote from Omar Khayam above suggests that this author, too, had a knowledge of Saturn's place in ...
132. Child of Saturn (Part VI) [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. XI No. 1 (Fall 1985) Home¦ Issue Contents Child of Saturn (Part VI) Dwardu Cardona Copyright (c) 1985 by Dwardu Cardona 28. Lux Divina Our quest for the progenitor of Venus has led us to the conclusion that not only was the goddess considered to have been Saturn's daughter but also his sister, wife, and mother. The goddesses Anat and Tanit, whom we last examined,(1) are not the only examples of these conflicting familial ties. Those who have been following this serialization might remember that aspects of the Indic Mahadevi, whom Artur Isenberg had earlier identified as Venus,(2) were also mythologically related to Saturn. As Parvati, Kali, and Durgadevi, the goddess was, as she still is, venerated as the wife of Shiva/Saturn.(3) So, also, with Gauri, "the goddess who rules the planet Venus".(4) But what do these relationships mean when translated into astronomical terms? What does it mean that ...

The bluish hue of the outer rings is due to the finely divided material. But is there a similar cause of the two rings? Credit: Imke de Pater, Heidi Hammel, Seran Gibbard, Mark Showalter, courtesy Science Sep 27, 2006 Blue Rings Pose New Mystery A newly discovered blue ring around the gas giant Uranus compares extremely well with the blue ring of Saturn, but astronomers lack a credible theory that can explain both. It is now known that rings are the rule among the gas giants — Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune — and the ring systems are dominated by a reddish hue. The color is apparently related to both particle size and composition. Relatively large particle sizes — many microns to meters across — are more abundant in the reddish rings, and this fact is at least partially responsible for ...
134. A Personal Report on, and Irreverent Look at, the World Conference 'Planetary Violence in Human History' Portland, Oregon, January 3-5, 1997 [SIS C&C Review $]
... on the extinctions of dinosaurs. This was highly unsatisfactory because we got the lead-in but no development or conclusions. The films showed the correlation between impact craters and mass extinctions; there was a very tempting one about dinosaur bones in Alaska. All his evidence suggests either the Earth was spinning in a different direction at one time, with what is now North and South being in a more temperate, even subtropical, zone, or that there was a different climate overall, as the idea of a Golden Age near to the warming Saturn might suggest. Dunlap was another doom merchant; he seems very keen on setting up systems to destroy incoming meteorites. He urged us to disseminate information about mass extinctions to avoid ourselves becoming extinct. No comment. Charles Ginenthal: 'Shifting Poles and the Extinction of the Mammoths'. Ginenthal reported a similar dream: he saw a moon fall out of the sky, destroying Earth. He had got about half-way into his talk when his time was up, so we never found out about the mammoths but he gave interesting evidence ...
135. The Cosmic Origin of the Swastika [Aeon Journal $]
... 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 holding a fire-drill". (2) Arthur Cook, on the other hand, is of the opinion that, "strictly speaking," the name Prometheus cannot be regarded "as the phonetic equivalent of pramantha", and adds that "it is only by invoking the uncertain aid of popular etymology that we are enabled to set the two side by side". (3 ...
136. Heaven's Mirror [SIS Internet Digest $]
... . Second row. This is a simple illustration of the mirror-image, twin-like aspect of the crescent and pillar in the daily cycle. Sunset and sunrise on the left; noon and midnight on the right. Third row. Here the graphic representation of the crescent is presented as line drawings. Sunset and sunrise on the left; noon and midnight on the right. I've included these to put the mirror aspect of the daily cycle into its most significant ancient context: together the mirror images mark out the full sphere of heaven (Saturn), a perception that did not escape the attention of the ancient symbolists, who devoted themselves to endless representations of the daily cycle. It is imperative that everyone understand that no other positions of the crescent are possible during the different junctures. In the illustrated phase of the evolving configuration, the axis of the Earth was pointed directly at Saturn, and so long as the condition prevailed, the movement of the crescent through the daily cycle could only be as depicted. Hence the test of the model are highly specific. ...

138. Heracles and the Planet Mars [Aeon Journal $]
... Immanuel Velikovsky in Worlds in Collision (the identification of Heracles with the planet Mars was also known to Velikovsky although it played no part in the reconstruction offered in that book). (21) While this hardly seems a realistic alternative the evidence appears to point in this direction. It is our opinion, in fact, that the mythological confrontation of Heracles and Helios commemorates a former arrangement of the solar system, one radically different from the current one. In this former planetary system the planet Mars-- together with the planet Saturn-- appears to have played a prominent role. The evidential support for this remarkable statement is the ancient identification of Helios with the planet Saturn, reported by Diodorus and Hesychius among others. (22) Helios' identification with Saturn is so incredible at first sight that one is tempted to dismiss the Greek testimony without a second thought. Yet Wilmamowitz, Boll, and other modern scholars have since confirmed the accuracy of Diodorus' testimony, the understanding of the planet Saturn as an ancient sun-god of some sort being widespread in ...

Saturn's magnetosphere has grown larger by more than a million miles. The dark spokes on Saturn's B ring have disappeared. The equatorial thunderstorm that raged continuously while both Voyagers passed has broken up and moved toward the poles. In November 1980 and August 1981, both Voyagers observed an intense storm near the equator (top photo) with high winds (1,100 miles per hour) and continuous lightning. This year, Cassini is observing less intense storms of short duration at mid-latitudes. Wind speeds are slower, too, topping out around 600 miles per hour. What causes the differences? Cassini researchers have proposed a possibility, based on meteorologists' theories of what ...
140. Saturn's Cosmos [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... on every continent. Whatever it may signify, it is more than a simple drawing of the sun. If it is a solar image, then one must assume not only that the sun worshippers around the world instinctively adopted the sun to a more complicated abstract form, but that every ancient sun-cult drew upon the same abstraction. Why? The enclosed sun-cross is not an abstraction. It simply records what the ancients originally saw. It is a literal drawing of the polar sun, passed down from earliest antiquity: the image of Saturn, the Universal Monarch. Rarely do archaeologists, seeking to interpret the widespread "sun" symbols, consult ancient mythology. Yet the myths explain the symbols, and the symbols illuminate the myths. Largely overlooked by archaeologists are the hundreds upon hundreds of myths and liturgies focusing on the cosmic images,, and. Ancient sources reveal a world-wide concern with a concrete celestial form-- an ideal configuration identified as the great god and his heavenly dwelling. The subject is not the present world order, but the former. The ...
