161. Part II: The Comet [Ragnarok] [Books]
... . Like the planets, they revolve about the sun, traversing with very variable velocities extremely elongated orbits." 9 We shall see reason to believe that they contain the same kinds of substances of which the planets are composed.Their orbits seem to be reminiscences of former planetary conditions: "All the comets, having a period not exceeding seven years, travel in the same direction around the sun as the planets. Among comets with periods less than eighty years long, five sixths travel in the same direction as the planets." 10 It is agreed that this globe of ours was at first a gaseous mass; as it cooled it condensed like cooling steam into a liquid ...
162. Historical Supplement [The Age of Velikovsky] [Books]
... in the capital city of Akhnaton, and a seal bearing the name of Aklinaton's mother turned up in a Mycenaean grave in Greece. "4 THE LEGEND A number of treatments of the Oedipus theme exist. 5 Sophocles presented three plays: Oedipus Rex, Oedipus at Colonus and Antigone. Aeschylus also wrote three plays, of which only The Seven Against Thebes remains. The names and details change, but the major plot is recognizable in each. It generally proceeds along the following lines: A royal couple have a baby son and, wishing to know what great things are in store for the child, consult a local blind soothsayer. Unfortunately, instead of the usual niceties provided ...
163. Paradise -- The Lost Frontier: Early Voyages to the Forbidden Isles [Journals] [Aeon]
... the part of Christian zealots who tried to eradicate the record of pagan achievements. Roman geographers eventually replaced Phoenician and Greek names for legendary lands with their own Latin titles: Bracir (Brazil), Asqua Samal (Great North Land) and Ophir became lost in the southern continent- the Antipodes. Septentrionalis, the icy realm of the "Seven Stars" at the Polar Regions, or the "Dipper," as the northern constellation was probably known to early mariners, became the Roman Arctic (the "Bear"). Its southern counterpart was identified as the Ant-arctic, meaning the "opposite bear." Thule, the northern frontier of Iceland and Greenland became Tile; ...
164. Electrical Origin of the Outbursts on Io [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . The outbursts seen on Jupiter's Satellite Io have been described as volcanic eruptions. They may instead be the result of large electric currents flowing through hot spots on Io and causing the evaporation of surface materials. A strictly periodic behaviour would then be expected. In the course of the Voyager I mission photography of Jupiter's satellite Io, at least seven violent eruptions were identified, apparently throwing material to heights up to 270 km and emanating from caldera-like markings. The eruptions were regarded as volcanic in origin by the various scientific teams that had the primary responsibility for the analysis of the data (1 , 2). Thus one of the teams writes, "Probably the most spectacular discovery ...
165. The Legends of the Jews: Volume II - Moses in Egypt [Books]
... them transfer them to the one to whom in their discretion they should entrust his position. Suspecting Jethro's hidden motives, the people put him under the ban, and none might venture to do him the slightest service. Not even would the shepherds pasture his flocks, and there was nothing for him to do but impose this work upon his seven daughters. Jethro's transformation from an idolatrous priest into a God-fearing man is conveyed by his seven names. He was called Jether, because the Torah contains an "additional" section about him; Jethro, he "overflowed" with good deeds. Hobab, "the beloved son of God"; Reuel, "the ...
166. Pandemonium [Books] [de Grazia books]
... heaven. The drum comes from K'uei, a green oxlike creature who came out of the sea shining like the sun and moon and making a noise like thunder. He was captured by Huang-ti who made him into a drumskin. But the same K'uei is also the master of music who alone can bring harmony between the six pipes and the seven modes. Without this harmony heaven and earth would lack their essential music. K'uei was also master of the forge, of dance, and of regulating floods . The sickle with which Kronos (Saturn) castrated Ouranos (Uranus) was also the harpe (lyre) of Demeter who had taught the Titans to reap. ...
167. A further synchronism between Palestine and Egypt [Journals] [SIS Review]
... not yet been reached and there will doubtless be further developments still to come but it is nonetheless already abundantly clear that there is no way of stretching the tolerances sufficiently to bring even the accession of Ramesses II to anywhere near the time of Shishak's raid on Jerusalem (currently seen as 920-915BC) that is, if any one of the first seven of the present eleven synchronisms between Palestine and Egypt can be accepted as justified. Notes and references 1. Reade, MG, Shishak, the Kings of Judah and some synchronisms', C&CR 1997:2 , pp.27-36. 2. Bimson, Dr J, SISR V:1 , pp. 11-27, 1980 ...

... to represent permanency should exist all along the coast, for it is inconceivable that the sea at Plymouth alone be a beach 30 feet plus feet, the difference between the sea-level when it was formed and what it is today. Scotland contains many of these raised beaches. On the island of Jura, Inner Hebrides, six, if not seven, of these raised beaches have been traced at various levels, the highest situated at 40 feet above present high tide. The Isle of Man is said to bear traces of five such beaches. Any idea that the tides reached a height of 40 feet above high-water today in some distant period by normal methods, and then by a ...
170. The Mesoamerican Record [Journals] [Pensee]
... , But they bowed their faces to heaven . . . Many were the people's looks; Many were the people's languages. Scattered on the flanks were the generations under heaven.... (P . V. 5117-5135). The turning-point in this desperation is the rumor of a great city: "Tula,/ Zuyua,/ Seven Caves,/ Seven Canyons was the name of the city" (5257-5260). Here the innumerable wandering tribes assemble, and they bring idols of their gods with them. The four First Fathers of the Quiche, who had earlier been humiliated for their excessive wisdom, bring each his god: Storm, Lord Jaguar, Fire Peak ...
