201. Site Stratification: is it a Sound Methodology? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... stranger, none from the 1st millennium BC have been found in Mesopotamia, although they reappear there in the 1st millennium AD. This is explained by Van Beek as an accident of preservation and archaeological discovery. ' [19] A 1st millennium BC dating of the Egyptian and Mesopotamian sites would eliminate these incongruities. This would also eliminate another strange circumstance. One of the strongest forms of the vault is that employing wedge-shaped or voussoir bricks. However, the earliest example of its use now dates to c.675 BC when an Assyrian architect employed it at Tell Jemmeh [20]. Despite its distinct advantages, it has only been found at one other ancient near-eastern site, ...

... time, a variety of warm, moist ecosystems have thrived well north of the Arctic Circle. For the first time, we have a documented example of a long-term departure from geological uniformitarianism. Given geological evidence that even the northernmost lands once had lush forests, one may wonder why Pleistocene glaciation occurred at all. The glaciers certainly moved in strange ways. For example, the Lower Paleozoic Franklinian Basin in northern Greenland occupies an area of over 150,000 square kilometers. Northern Greenland has extensive evidence of petroleum generation and migration in the form of oil-stained sandstones and carbonates, solid bitumen and seeping asphalt. There are numerous occurrences of bitumen in the southernmost part of the Franklinian Basin ...

203. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... scenario can easily be categorised as "possible" but not "probable", and can be dismissed as such. On the other hand, the lunar impact theories which ascribe lunar magnetism to cometary and asteroid impacts remain highly probable. One can only conclude that the extensive coverage Runcorn's ideas have received is a form of unitormitarian rearguard action. Strange Life sources: NEW SCIENTIST 16.6 .83, p.776; NATURE 303, p.423 The East Pacific Rise is a region of oceanic crust where it is thought that two crustal plates are being pushed apart by upwelling magma. It is an area of sulphurous hydrothermal vents, mineral concentrations and lava formation. An ...

... , almost poetically, he gropes toward an understanding of the phenomenon he has come upon. In plays like Hamlet or the Agamemnon or the Electra we have certainly fine and flexible character study, a varied and well-wrought story, a full command of the technical instruments of the poet and the dramatist; but we have also, I suspect, strange, unanalyzed vibration beneath the surface, an undercurrent of desires and fears and passions, long slumbering yet eternally familiar, which have for thousands of years lain near the root of our most intimate emotions and been wrought into the fabric of our most magical dreams.(21) These vibrations, he feels, are old and primitive and ...

... '. Two years later, the occurrence of another earthquake and violent electrical storm at Aachen was mentioned in the final entry of the Royal Frankish Annals. Extensive flooding, causing great damage, took place in Francia in 834 AD according to both the Annals of Xanten and the Annals of St Bertin. Two years later, Xanten recorded that strange rays of light appeared from east to west in the night sky and for 837 AD and the transition to the following year, they continued: A mighty whirlwind kept breaking out, and a comet was seen, sending out a great tail to the east, which to human eyes looked as it was three cubits long The winter ...

... let him assume his place in his temple," where Nekau-Wehemibre prepared "all the coffins and everything excellent and profitable for this august god."4 Then follows the biography of the bull with the exact day and month of his birth. Historiography is content with this single monumental relic of the rich past of Pharaoh Necho. It is strange indeed that in the annals of Egypt no account has been found of the long war between Nekau-Wehemibre and Nebuchadnezzar; no record of the civic activities of Nekau-Wehemibre is extant; no law published in his day has been found; no temple built by him has been unearthed; no written scroll discovered; no mummy or coffin.5 Judged ...

... Eastern Roman Empire, the same light clay elements were used for vaults, the last time some 250 years before Aachen. Byzantium has not preserved any buildings of the period between about 610 and 910 [23]. In both cases there is no trace of a craft tradition; there were and are no predecessors to the Aachen masterpiece. Strangely, this mysteriously acquired but masterfully applied dome building technology was immediately forgotten. Around 970, knowledge of how to build vaults and domes had to be learned afresh in Europe, beginning with spans around 3 5 m. It took another 150 years before it was possible to build, in Speyer, a dome of the same diameter and ...

... him with them, when he was averse to it. 8. The horsemen therefore took Benjamin and brought him to Joseph, his brethren also following him; who, when he saw him in custody, and them in the habit of mourners, said, "How came you, vile wretches as you are, to have such a strange notion of my kindness to you, and of God's providence, as impudently to do thus to your benefactor, who in such an hospitable manner had entertained you ?" Whereupon they gave up themselves to be punished, in order to save Benjamin; and called to mind what a wicked enterprise they had been guilty of against Joseph. ...

... the Star God, gold became accursed because of its Sabean and Typhonian origin, since the timekeeping of the early stars was imperfect compared to the perfect time kept by the Sun. So it pleased the Solarites to condemn them in a thousand different ways. It is at this point, as time goes on, that mythology and history become strangely mixed, an understanding of the language of the ancients seeming to be wholly lacking. Even on monuments of great antiquity gold appears already tarnished and considered as the root of all evil, which is misuse or misunderstanding of its early symbology. Fire, the earthly form of heavenly light, was a symbol of gold, which was likened ...

... next." Life rolls backwards like a film that has been reversed. [Paragraphing altered] (17) According to Alexander Grinstein, another would-be comprehensive interpreter of Freud's dreamwork who cited Erik Erikson, H. C. Leavitt, and Freud's physician Max Schur in support, "of all Freud's dreams this specimen dream' [which, strangely enough, Velikovsky virtually ignored] has received the greatest study in psychoanalytic literature." Freud himself, who referred to it many times in the pages of his Interpretation, once, before that manuscript was completed, had rhetorically asked his confidant Wilhelm Fliess if some day a plaque would mark the place where, on July 24, 1895 ...
