... he cast up; of the three walls that encompassed the city, and of their measures; of the strength of the city, and the structure of the temple and holy house; and besides, the measures of those edifices, and of the altar, and all accurately determined. A description also of certain of their festivals, and seven purifications of purity, (5 ) and the sacred ministrations of the priests, with the garments of the priests, and of the high priests; and of the nature of the most holy place of the temple; without concealing any thing, or adding any thing to the known truth of things. 11.

132. Maya Cosmos: A Saturnian Interpretation (Part II) [Journals] [Aeon]
... . There is another example of the polar configuration in a balustrade from the North Temple of the Ballcourt, also at Chich'en Itza. (Figure 6, in which the interpretations accompanying the diagram come from Freidel, et al.) The image on this balustrade supports the ideas put forward in my earlier Maya Cosmos paper. Itzam Yeh (Seven Macaw, of the Popul Vuh), the bird avatar of Itzamna, the sun god (or the planet Saturn, according to this study), is at the top of the World Tree (that is the Saturnian configuration).

... the terminology of this paper, all that is required to "specify" or "establish" an orbit is that a and e be established, regardless of the orientation of the orbit and regardless of the body that might occupy it. The next step will be to examine the interrelationship that exists among a, e, and the other seven orbital parameters listed in the Introduction, and to portray this interrelationship on a diagram or map of some sort.(4 ) As mentioned previously, the nine parameters are not completely independent of one another; on the contrary, only two of the nine can be considered independent. The remaining seven will be dependent on those two and ...
... the constellation of the Great Bear. About four thousand years ago the apparent pivot of rotation was at a Draconis, much nearer the Great Bear than now, and at that time the rapid circular sweep must have been far more striking than at present. In addition to the name Ursa Major the Latins called thus constellation Septentriones, "the seven plowing oxen," that dragged the stars around the pole, and the Greeks called it ilixn, from its vast spiral movement.40 In the opinion of Dr, March all these are represented or symbolized by the Swastika. Prof. AV, A. Goodyear, of New York, has lately (1891) published an elaborate ...
135. "Following The Precedent Of One Galileo". File I (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... ) And his opinion was that Galileo arranged these planets in his telescope to cheat the credulous and to earn undeserved fame. Professor Clavius was not a man without erudition. As a matter of fact, he was the chief author of the Gregorian calendar reform. Professor Francesco Sizzi, an astronomer in Florence, declared that there could be but seven planets because seven is a holy number; therefore, there could be no moons around Jupiter. "We have only seven windows in our heads," he said, "two nostrils, two eyes, two ears, one mouth." Libri, a philosopher, refused to look into Galileo's telescope. When he died, Galileo ...
... /an. it is difficult to believe that there were two such sacred mountains in close proximity, and that both were acclaimed as the creators of mankind. The tragic eclipse of Atlas, if slightly varied, must have been very similar to the fate of Prometheus. All around were the isles. daughters of Atlas, as also the seven Pleiades, who traditionally drowned themselves for sorrow of their sire's sufferings excepting only Merope, the "Mortal". Lake Triton was included in the area about Mt. Atlas. He was the son of Poseidon and Amphitrite, and shared their golden palace at the bottom of the sea, or, as Homer describes it, at Aegae ...

... of this temple of silver. CHAPTER 4. HOW SOLOMON REMOVED THE ARK INTO THE TEMPLE HOW HE MADE SUPPLICATION TO GOD, AND OFFERED PUBLIC SACRIFICES TO HIM. 1. WHEN king Solomon had finished these works, these large and beautiful buildings, and had laid up his donations in the temple, and all this in the interval of seven years, and had given a demonstration of his riches and alacrity therein, insomuch that any one who saw it would have thought it must have been an immense time ere it could have been finished; and would be surprised that so much should be finished in so short a time; short, I mean, if compared with the ...
139. Darkness and the Deep [Journals] [Aeon]
... so, but already in the Psalms it was written that, "By the word of Yahweh the heavens were made." (153) As we shall soon see, the idea itself derives from great antiquity. In the theology of Hermas, "the Word is called glorious angel" and is said to have been surrounded by the seven archangels. (154) In the Gospel of John, of course, "the Word was made flesh" as the body of Jesus. (155) In some early texts, Jesus is made to refer to himself as the Sabbath. (156) And, as Lewis Greenberg and Warner Sizemore indicated, as the Sabbath, ...
