... seems never to have given a thought to the most striking features of this area,"(3 ) can also be readily disposed of: the pyramids of Giza were built later. It has long been assumed that the pyramids constituted an almost celestial high-point at the very start of Egyptian civilisation, from which later rulers- building in a strangely more primitive fashion- disassociated themselves while yet drawing incessantly on "conscious archaisms."(4 ) But in truth the pyramids provide us with a naturally evolved late stage of building activity, though this new level of technical and creative expression did not begin until the second third of the first millennium. They stand as the most lasting ...

192. Freud and Velikovsky Part I [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... boy at school. The symptoms had gone from one eye without leaving ill effects. Her physician (Breuer?) had therefore rebuked her for agonizing over the boy: "What sort of Geseres is this you are making? If one side got well, the other side will get well too." It did. Freud related the strange word to the German for soured or leavened, gesauert, which reminded him of the peculiar bread Jews eat in their Passover festival, or, as he put it, "at Easter time." Friends informed him that the word geseros was indeed Hebrew and meant decrees to inflict horrors, dooms. But Freud makes no reference to ...

... ) = 24.3333 Table 2 The point five (. 5 ) results for the sidereal and synodic of Venus would constitute a unique station for the priests to use. Each station is an invisibility and as Venus was then feared by the Maya, such routine re-occurrences would constitute nice moments to reinforce the control system. There is another strange number in the Dresden Codex which defies convention. It is in the section which convention says is that part which deals with eclipses. It is a series of 13 successive 13s. There is no conventional explanation for this number but by using our calculated Venus sidereal we can demonstrate a strange relationship: 13 13 224.6153846 = 37 ...

... are artifacts generated by mankind himself out of the sensory perceptions of historic events, and are thus merely tools. But even as such these are elegant and valuable tools which are also necessary for the exploration and understanding of the paths of the past. This speculative essay has less to do with the apparent mystery of the Tao, which seems strange only to the Western mind, than it has to do with the dramatic changes in the course of empire circa the 9th to the 6th century B.C ., and the new emphasis on hermetic legends and the philosophies which sprang from them. This nearly 3000-year old legacy of Eastern mysticism has influenced our own philosophy and religious beliefs ...

195. Shamir [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1997:1 (Oct 1997) Home | Issue Contents Shamir by David Salkeld Summary The strange substance shamir' mentioned in Jewish legends has led to many theories. The idea that it might have been radioactive, possibly associated with impacts or lightning strikes is discussed. Introduction An article by Immanuel Velikovsky was published in Kronos VI:1 on pp. 48-50. It starts In the Talmud and Midrashim there are many references to Shamir. Unusual qualities were ascribed to it. For instance, it reputedly could disintegrate anything, even hard, durable stones. The rabbinical literature describes it as being employed in engraving the breastplate of the High Priest ...

... . We have seen how the world canopies moved toward the poles. Because they moved thither they lingered there longest and last and hence the northern races knew their firmament hidden from view long after the Greek and Roman saw the new heaven and the new order. I believe it was K. O. Muller who first called attention to the strange fact that in the oldest northern annals there is an extreme dearth of astronomical thought, and delving into the old fossil beds of the Sagas I have not been able to find the faintest allusion to a constellation nor to any of the prominent stars so constantly found in the earlier thought of the southern peoples. What can explain it? ...

... under close scrutiny. It is to be regretted that in the span of a full quarter-century no accredited geophysicist ever came forward to take up Velikovsky's cause. One would think that the sheer weight of space-age discoveries- most of them pointing to an electric universe in the Velikovskian mode- might have rallied at least a few professionals. But, strangely enough, this has not happened. And it is left to us who might rather be bystanders to take up the study. Let us assume, with Velikovsky, that the Earth carries significant electric charge. Let us further assume, as suggested elsewhere, (2 ) that this charge is actively imposed on our planet by the demands ...

They have a picture of something going round which has got a head and a tail and it's capable of covering the Sun. Another strange thing in Anaximander's description of the present world is his assertion that the stars are nearer to the Earth than the Sun and the Moon. And again, translators have said, This man is nuts! No reasonable man could claim that the stars are nearer to us than the Sun and the Moon. It doesn t seem to have ...

199. Velikovsky and His Heroes [Journals] [SIS Review]
... was doing so himself. Velikovsky then clearly himself had a deep compulsion to attribute the crime of rewriting history to Nebuchadrezzar. His fascination with Nebuchadrezzar got the better of him. At first glance, with his Jewish-Nationalist background, Velikovsky's soft spot for Ahab, in contrast, is puzzling. Did the arch-sinner of Samaria, too, strike a strange responsive chord in Velikovsky? Ahab is a very similar figure to Velikovsky's earlier Biblical hero, King Saul. Both were secular nationalist leaders, condemned by the priesthood and abandoned by their God. Both register the despair of that loss without in fact changing their ways. Most important of all, both Saul and Ahab faced the rage of ...

The learned ancients evidently held such a view and described these mystic cometary gases as Shekinfth, the Veil, and the most sacred attribute of the Godhead (120). EFFECT OF SOLAR RADIATION UPON COMETARY GASES 116. The visible tail of a comet as the body approaches closer towards the sun betrays strange movements which give it the appearance often as of some vast fabulous monster, such as a dragon or a fiery serpent, lashing its tail in agony as it plunges blindly forward along its allotted path. The effects of the solar rays operating upon this wanderer through space are seen in constant changes in its size and shape. It twists ...
