51. Father Kugler's Falling Star [Kronos $]
... the Sibyl's "star-battles". In short, whilst he attributes the origin of the former legend to the havoc caused by the fall of a meteorite, he regards the Sibylline books as recording the natural progression of the heavens over a period of time:(7) Nonnos has deliberately devised a highly fantastic picture of extreme confusion among the stars; the author of Sibyls, V, 512ff., on the other hand, has portrayed actual astral changes, as they come about according to the accepted order in the course of seven months, as the effect of a battle. This is, after all, a quite basic distinction There exists between the two works the greatest imaginable contradiction, which leaps to the eyes even before recognition of the unified plan of Sibyls, V, 512ff.(8) Before going any further, it will be as well to consider the underlying assumptions Kugler started from in writing this study: we will then have a clearer idea of the advance he made as a result of his research. Kugler was schooled in the ...
52. Ahab and the Battles of Karkar and Ramoth-Gilead [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... the fact that it is generally accepted, and not merely a product of Hickman's scenario, that the last year of Ahab was the same year as the battles of Karkar and Ramoth-Gilead. Seemingly, the only way of placing the death of Ahab at Ramoth-Gilead some years later than the battle of Karkar would be to accept the suggestion put forward by William H. Shea (" Adad-nirari III and Jehoash of Israel," JCS, Vol. 30, 112-13), wherein the Judaean queen Athaliah is proposed as ruling during the first seven years of Joash's 40 years. At the same time in Israel there would have been a seven-year coregency, either between Jehu and Jehoahaz, or alternatively between Jehoahaz and Jehoash. However, acceptance of such a scenario would in turn depend in part upon the identity of the Israelite king-- Yaw, son of Omri-- from whom Shalmaneser III took tribute in his eighteenth regnal year, twelve years after the battle of Karkar. If Yaw, son of Omri, was Jehu, then the battles of Karkar and Ramoth-Gilead ...
53. Solving Problems In Your Sleep [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 29: Sep-Oct 1993 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Solving Problems In Your Sleep Psychiatrist Morton Schatzman is investigating how some people solve problems in their dreams. Part of his research involves assigning problems (really brain twisters) to students, who are then supposed to solve them in their sleep. One problem posed asked the students to discover how to generate the remaining letters in the following infinite, non-repeating sequence of letters OTTFF... Seven students said they discovered the correct answer in their dreams. Another twister concerned the letter sequence HIJKLMNO. What single English word is represented by this string of letters? One student dreamed he was swimming but failed to make the proper connection. (Schatzman, Morton; "Solving Problems in Your Sleep," New Scientist, 98:692, 1983.)

54. A further synchronism between Palestine and Egypt [SIS C&C Review $]
... analysis dates the death of Jehoahaz to 795BC, in which case the date of accession of Ramesses II would be expected to be very similar, say 795-790BC. Absolute finality on this subject has 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.

55. New Insights to Antiquity: A Drawing Aside of the Veil by Richard Petersen [Aeon Journal $]
... strange interpretations, although early on he takes the reader on an eclectic, albeit interesting, tour of historical matters before getting into his subject matter proper-- which translates into this being an equally rambling review. His seemingly peripatetic excursions in the American southwest have led to a book of similarly scattered ideas, and instead of drawing aside the veil of ignorance, he has merely enhanced it. We are first introduced to Fray Marcos de Niza, circa 1539, and the first view of what might have been one of the fabled Seven Cities of Cibola in present day Arizona. However, in a second expedition with a military contingent, hopeful of the conquest of gold and souls, there was found nothing but mostly abandoned and poor Zuni villages. Excursions as far north as Kansas led by Coronado later on merely found lots of real estate but little else to underwrite their two-year effort-- though it might be noted out of context that a separate contingent also discovered the Grand Canyon, where one of Coronado's men was purported to have exclaimed, "Something's happened ...
56. The Setting of the Stage [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Petersburg, a man not to miss the California goldrush. Having grown rich through the years of adventures, Schliemann went to Hissarlik, a low hill near the Dardanelles, on the Aegean shore of Turkey, after proclaiming that he would find Troy there. Schliemann ? s advance public announcement as to his intent to discover Troy was met partly with disbelief and sarcasm, but mostly with indifference. He dug, destroyed much valuable material and disturbed some of the archaeological sequence; but he discovered beneath the mound of Hissarlik the remains of seven cities, one beneath the other. 3 He identified the second city from the bottom as the Troy of which Homer sang: it was a fortress, strong and rich in treasures, seemingly destroyed in a violent earthquake. 4 Later scholars identified King Priam ? s city as the sixth from the bottom, still later as Troy VIIa. In 1876 Schliemann, now crowned with success, went to the Argive plain in Greece, to Mycenae, to locate the tomb of Agamemnon, ? king of men,? the leader ...

... today (that attend the church) and the people of the pre-Christian past. Phillip Clapham Note* See Michael Dames, Mythic Ireland, Thames and Hudson, p. 108. Gearaid Iarla= the goose of the island, i.e. Garrett Island on Lough Gur. Interestingly, there is a Jarrett Hill in Gerrards Cross, a half mile distant from the Camp. There is also a tradition of regular human sacrifice at Lough Gur. According to folklore the lough is said to claim a victim, by drowning, once every seven years. Gearaid Iarla is believed to have drowned in the lough himself and once every seven years (again) he can be seen riding the lake surface astride a great horse (his reflection). \cdrom\pubs\journals\review\v1996n2\26notes.htm ...
58. Mysteries Around Uranus [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 17: Fall 1981 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Mysteries Around Uranus August 15, 1980. European Southern Observatory, La Silla, Chile. Using the 3.6-meter reflector and a photoelectric detector, astronomers recorded the occultation of a star by Uranus. The currently recognized rings of Uranus were duly noted as they dimmed the star's light, but so did seven other "objects." Observers at Las Campanas and Cerro Tololo, who were also monitoring the occultations, did see the seven extra occultations of the star. Clouds and faulty equipment have been ruled out. No one knows what caused the anomalies, (Anonymous; "More Mysteries of Uranus' Rings," Solar System Today, 3:56, 1981.) From Science Frontiers #17, Fall 1981.© 1981-2000 William R.

60. Stone Alignments In Subsaharan Africa [Science Frontiers Website]
... Stone Alignments In Subsaharan Africa Megalithic sites are found everywhere; many were apparently used for calendar reckoning. Although numerous megalithic circles and other arrangements are known in Africa, particularly Ethiopia, astronomy does not seem to have been a primary objective of African sites. Now, however, a stone alignment in northwestern Kenya called Namoratunga has been found with unmistakable astronomical overtones. At Namoratunga, 19 large basalt pillars are arranged in rows forming a suggestive pattern. Since the site is dated at approximately 300 B.C., archeologists have taken sightings on seven prominent stars as they would have appeared during this period. (The azimuths of some of these stars had changed by as much as 12 in 2,200 years.) The stars chosen are those employed by Eastern Cushites, the present inhabitants of the region, in calculating their rather sophisticated calendar. Pairs and frequently triads of these pillars line up very accurately (to less than 1) with the seven key stars. The people occupying this part of Kenya about 300 B.C., therefore, probably possessed detailed astronomical information ...
