131. THE ROAD TO SATURN (EXCERPTS FROM AN AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL ESSAY) [Journals] [Aeon]
... into the world. Saturn itself continued to shine as a sun in its own right. It was bright enough to keep the stars, except those of first magnitude, from being seen. It was not however as bright as the Sun and, during the day, it paled into a cloud-like ghost. Two filaments detached themselves from Saturn's spiralling matter and were temporarily "lost" in the reaches of space. The rest of this watery debris congealed into a ring around the orb. The god had organized his cosmos. It was this "world" that man had witnessed the god create, for in truth the creation did not originally refer to a terrestrial realm. In ...
132. The Tertiary Satellite immediately before its Cataclysmic Breakdown (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... Myths and Man by H. S. Bellamy CD Rom Home Last | Contents | Next 3 The Tertiary Satellite immediately before its Cataclysmic Breakdown We shall now enter upon our task of examiningthe cosmological myths in the light of the teachings of Hoerbiger's Theory. As we have seen, Hoerbiger maintained that universal cataclysms have been caused by satellites which have spiralled closer to the Earth until they have finally disintegrated. The ensuing chapters will follow one another more or less in the order of events required by the theory. But the succession of events will not only result from the logic of a theory; it is also the order insisted on by many of the myths; it is the natural ...
... the planet Luna became our Moon, our Earth looked different in many ways. Let us consider a few of those differences. First of all, the North Pole was not situated where it is now, but very probably near Petermann's Peak, in Greenland. After the capture of Luna the North Pole started slowly migrating, along a wide spiral path, towards its present position. The reason for this is not far to seek. Only the Earth's vast hard core was left unimpaired by the capture consequences. It remained practically undeformed, and except, perhaps, for a slight jolt which contributed a precessional wobble to its rotational axis it went on spinning as before, owing to ...
134. Bob Forrest and Venus As A Comet In World Mythology [Books]
... god Kukulkan carries an equivalent meaning, as does the Quiché figure, Gucumatz. (25) The same figure appears to have entered Zuni ritual as the plumed serpent Kolowisi, while Hopi tradition celebrates the plumed serpent Palulukong. (26) Though the figure of Quetzalcoatl is complex and appears to combine originally distinct traditions, the identification of the spiraling serpent itself (the transformed heart-soul) with Venus has survived even into modern times. Some of the Tzotzil groups, for example, still describe Venus as "the Big Serpent" (Mukta Ch'on). (27) Is it significant, then, that Aztec manuscripts depict a comet as a fiery serpent or dragon-like creature descending from ...
... a great writhing serpent, arches its back, throws its tail above its head and curves itself into an infinity of forms. These movements are due to the predominating gases, which in consequence of solar radiation are attracted or repelled according to their nature. Hydrogen stands out in a straight line away from the sun; hydrocarbons curve and assume spiral forms;iron vapour causes a pronounced curve near the nucleus, as though a dragon were arching its throat. In some comets the tails are limited, but a nebula or cloud surrounds the nucleus; sometimes it adopts a fan-like form, like the tail of a hawk, whence the origin, perhaps, of that wonderful winged globe ...
136. Jupiter in Collision: In Search of Velikovsky's Comet [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... great meteorite showers. Present auroral displays, sometimes called the Northern Lights, are the product of periodic solar flares which cause temporary charge imbalances in the Earth's magnetic field. When these entrapped charges reach a critical point, they rush from the trailing end of the tear-shaped geomagnetic belt and cascade down towards the north and south magnetic poles in a spiral pattern. These charged particles become visible as they collide with rising atoms of oxygen and nitrogen, producing a distinctive belt of glowing gases in the Earth's upper atmosphere. The great pillar aurora is most easily understood as an upward extension of the present auroral oval and its interior polar cap. The great pillar of the Exodus would be initiated ...
137. Darkness and the Deep [Journals] [Aeon]
... relation this has to the hallucinogenic mushroom known as amanita muscaria, this visible word of god was the fructifying rain with its attendant thunder as divine verbalization. (160) The Bambara tribes of the Sudan, however, believe that, during creation, "things emerge in succession from the Voice of the Void' in whirlwinds and words that spiral upwards." (161) "Words that spiral upwards" can hardly be a metaphor for rain that falls downwards. Besides, Allegro seems to have missed the connection between the Word and the Light. As von Hgel noted, the Gospel of John shows a close affinity between the Word and "The Light of the World, ...
138. Myths of the Cataclysm Caused by the Breakdown of a Former Satellite (The Book of Revelation is History) [Books]
... `nadiral' ring'. Viewed through these dense swarms of debris the sun was much obscured by day (12b), while at night, brightly shining in reflected light, the block-crowds looked like `falling stars', that is, like dense streams of shooting-stars (13a). Approaching nearer and nearer to the earth on their spiral paths, the blocks into which the satellite's ice-cover had been riven at last `shot into' the atmosphere in tangential paths which were practically parallel to the earth's surface. The enormously increased resistance which the blocks experienced in the terrestrial air-coat made their paths tend earthward very steeply. The friction caused the ice-blocks to dissolve into hail or rain ...
139. Paired Sets in the Hebrew Alphabet [Journals] [Aeon]
... ; as u in the Assyrian. In the Hebrew waw, a hook, ' pin, ' or peg, ' used of the hooks or golden fastenings in the doorposts of the tabernacle; of the peg or stake by which the flap of the nomad's tent was held open." (33) Let us note here that the spiral hieroglyph serving as "u " or "w " in the Egyptian "alphabet" can be seen as the forked portion of numerous ancient clothing pins which are basically the shape of the Early Hebrew letter waw. The spiral, of course, is a graphic representation of the spinning motion of a top or spindle, although such may ...

... on Earth might have found its way to Mars via debris ejected into space after impacts, just as meteorites from Mars have arrived at Earth. ELECTROMAGNETISM Cosmic jets New Scientist 28.10.95, p. 18 Jets of matter streaming from radio galaxies may be capable of accelerating particles sufficiently to explain ultra high energy cosmic rays. Magnetic spirals New Scientist 28.10.95, p. 11 The Sun's magnetic field lines are dragged round as it rotates, producing a spiral effect. Greater than gravity New Scientist 27.1 .96, p. 52 A reader asks why all our theories assume that gravity alone is responsible for holding galaxies together. He notes that ...
