141. The Kaaba [Journals] [Kronos]
... cloth embroidered with Koranic verses which is renewed each year. The kiswah is slightly drawn up at the bottom to reveal the base of the Kaaba, the door, and the two holy stones. Today, the small building rests within the vast courtyard of the Great or Sacred Mosque, properly called al-Masjid al Haram, an imposing edifice boasting seven minarets. Concerning this humble shrine, Mohammed himself dictated: ". . . turn thy face toward the Inviolable Place of Worship, the Kaaba, and ye (O Moslems), wherever ye may be, turn your faces (when ye pray) toward it."(4 ) These words have been among the most effective ...

143. Introduction (Ramses II and his Time) [Velikovsky]
... TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Introduction The more proper title for this volume would have been Ramses II and Nebuchadnezzar, since both of them play dominant roles in this volume, or in this part of history. But revealing in this way the subject of the book- and the contemporaneity of two well-known figures of antiquity, separated in conventionally written history by seven hundred years-would have added sensation to what is perforce a revolutionary reconstruction of the past. Although the entire work of reconstruction covers over twelve hundred years, each volume is organized in such a way that it presents, as far as feasible, a separate fraction of ancient history. On the pages to follow an effort is made to reconstruct ...

145. Royal Incest [Books] [de Grazia books]
... From: Cosmic Heretics, by Alfred De Grazia Home | Issue Contents PART ONE CHAPTER ONE Royal Incest Alfred de Grazia was entering his forty-fourth year when he met a self-styled cosmic heretic, Immanuel Velikovsky, who was already sixty- seven, and for the next twenty years a wide band of life's spectrum was colored by their relationship. As with a love affair, all that happened in the beginning presaged what would happen later, stretched out on the scale of time, themes doubling back upon themselves, attractions and reservations never to be erased, continuing accumulations. The men changed, the world of science changed, too, and also the political world, yet this latter ...
146. Celestial fireworks [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... 17: the deity stretches his arms; four arrows shot; four rivers of paradise created on top of the mountain or springing from a subterranean river; the creator reveals himself as a star. Frame 4/17: the deity is an eight-armed star, a spider or an octopus in the sky or in the waters of creation; seven shining orbs with tails emitted by the creator, which are fragmented limbs, spoken words, pieces of food, the first ancestors, the first stars, attendants of the king, or soldiers in the army of the creator. Frame 5/17: the spider or star deity begins to turn round and becomes a wheel; dance ...
147. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... For example, a photograph of the galaxy in Andromeda is captioned: "A living cell expelled by our galaxy at a speed of 1000 km s-1 would reach the great galaxy in the constellation of Andromeda (shown here) in the span of time comparable to that which has elapsed since the late Precambrian, about 700 million years." Seven figures and two tables have appeared before, in either Lifecloud or Diseases from Space (and, in two cases, both), and a full-page quotation from Thucydides' The Peloponnesian Wars was also included in Diseases from Space. The main thesis of the earlier books, that living cells originate on comets from biochemicals picked up as the ...
148. Thoth Vol I, No. 3: February 18, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... in our sky. And the things depicted are the *subjects* of the myths and rites, though this vital truth has not been generally recognized, either by catastrophists or by mainstream scholars. Now let's take the ONE STORY a step further, in response to Vine's question: how many archetypal figures of myth are there? There are SEVEN, I say with smug assurance. Well there *are* just seven! But it all depends how you count these guys (and gals). For openers, we know there is at least one archetypal figure, because he is the god whose ancient name was "ONE", the primeval, all-encompassing "Unity". ...
149. Child of Saturn (Part III) [Journals] [Kronos]
... "The Navajo dignify the Pleiades by associating them with their principal deity, Black God, creator of fire and light. In fact, a recognisable form of this group appears on the face of the Black God."(4 ) Just as Venus seems to have been associated with the number sixteen, Saturn was linked to the number seven.(5 ) Unlike the case of Venus, we do know of a basis for Saturn's number seven. This "holy" number arose in connection with the Saturnian Sun of Night because of the seven rings which ancient man saw surrounding that luminary in primeval times.(6 ) Consider therefore also the following by D. H ...

Early on, Mr. Riggs asked Dr. Velikovsky to describe the remembrance of his early education at Medvednikov Gymnasium. He recalled that his family moved from Vitebsk in Latvia, to Moscow when he was almost seven specifically because - Dr. Velikovsky: .. . my mother wished to give us, her three Sons, the best possible education, and for that reason she strove to come to Moscow and live there .. .
