The Kami-name Iwa-tsuchi seems to me to be ' Rock-weapon. ') But it must be regarded as most strange that there is an actual rock-boat in the Odyssey (xiii, 197 etc), where Poseidon smites the strip of the Phaiekians (or Phaiakians) into a Stone in the likeness of a swift ship that all mankind might marvel. (Note also that this ship's crew numbered 50 and 2-Odyss. viii, 35, 48, and ...

... .(35) For quite a long time Petrie's design was quoted as conclusive but not put to test. Eventually a senior scientist of Servomechanisms, Inc. wanted to find out for himself and after a long series of experiments concluded that "there are many reasons for opposing Petrie's view and none supporting it."(36) A strange reluctance to settle the problem of glassforming by mainstream glass historians is justified as follows: "Since modern researchers have not yet conducted their experiments under simple Egyptian conditions using exclusively Egyptian raw materials it can not be conclusively decided which method was actually applied in antiquity."(37) When, in 1962, Schuler came up with his ...

... that the universe was made in this way?"(7 ) The answer was revealed at Alamogordo. On July 16, 1945, at 5:29 in the morning, the quietude of the New Mexico desert was suddenly and rudely disrupted by the detonation of an atomic explosion. To the onlookers, the sight was both awesome and strangely beautiful. "The fierce light that followed, almost blinding in spite of . . . closed eyes, was impossible to describe. There was no frame of reference from anything the observers had experienced before. In a brief moment, the light within twenty miles was equal to several suns at midday."(8 ) As far ...

... his march against Jacob he had had a most peculiar experience with a great host of forty thousand warriors. It consisted of various kinds of troops, armor-clad soldiers walking on foot, mounted on horses, and seated in chariots, and they all threw themselves upon Esau when they met. He demanded to know whence they came, and the strange soldiers hardly interrupted their savage onslaught to reply that they belonged to Jacob. Only when Esau told them that Jacob was his brother did they leave off, saying, "Woe to us if our master hears that we did thee harm." This was the army and the encounter Esau inquired about as soon as he met his brother ...

... "sever from the body politic a monstrous growth that battens there." (105) That the monstrous growth is Oedipus himself is confirmed in a subsequent passage where the seer Tiresias rebukes the belligerent king as follows: "The rotting canker in the state is you." (106) The comparison of Oedipus to a rotting canker, strange as it might appear at first sight, would appear to conform to a universal pattern associated with the warrior-hero. Heroes from around the world are inexplicably identified with cankers or ulcers (or, alternatively, said to have grotesque running sores on their bodies). A classic example of this motive is presented by the incandescent warrior-hero of Ossetic ...

... phenomenon that is restricted to northern regions and hardly, if ever, seen at the latitude of Egypt. But there is more. The Egyptian Ra was, by the Egyptians themselves, assimilated to the god Atum, and, in fact, this deity is often referred to in Egyptian documents as Atum-Ra. This god bore a specific and strange characteristic. Atum was honored as a sun of night. [43] Does the Sun shine at night? Students of Egyptian mythology have long grappled with the exact meaning that lies hidden beneath this strange characteristic of Atum. The best that Wallis Budge could offer by way of an explanation was that Atum was the Sun after it had ...

... , British or French. They remained definitely German during the period of military rule. Allied commanders in Germany could occasionally be seen in Bavarian lederhosen without ever turning into Bavarians. Today, we're told by mainstream historians that Assyria must have been depopulated during the time of Persian rule because no archaeological evidence of this period has been found; a strange state of affairs considering that Herodotus (I , 191) calls Assyria the wealthiest of Persia's satrapies. The situation in Babylon is only slightly better, with various texts, records, seals and several buildings offered as remains of the period of Persian rule. Recently, I received a message from Gunnar Heinsohn that addresses the question of Persian ...

From front, as twere a house, he ruled and measured; pierced with his bolt the fountains of the rivers, And made them flow at ease by paths far-reaching, These things did Indra in the Soma's rapture." (39) Strangely enough, Indra seems to have developed this taste for Soma shortly after his birth: "Many are Indra's nobly wrought achievements,...He beareth up this earth and heaven, and, doer of marvels, he begot the Sun and Morning. Herein, O Guileless One, is thy true greatness, that soon as born ...

... for them. As has been pointed out a number of times today, the reaction of the scientific community and others to Dr. Velikovsky's proposals obviously provides a worthwhile topic for psychological investigation in itself. As a psychoanalyst, Dr. Velikovsky could have predicted in advance that his findings would have awakened the most intense resistance. I think it strange that so much fuss is made about the strange behaviour of the scientific community. It was and is perfectly predictable and understandable in terms of the very psychological theories that are being proposed. The resistance would have to be intense if indeed a collective amnesia is involved. Dr. Velikovsky identifies somewhat with Freud in assuming the responsibility of confronting ...

... or Aramaean) art during this period compares therefore with the absorption of Hurrian culture as a whole, including religion and literature. These consequently are not the cultural elements the Hittites may have disseminated toward the Aegean. The cyclopean architecture of Mycenae, however, has distinct analogies with the monumentality of the Hittites and with the kingdom of Urartu. Strangely enough, there is ample evidence of trade with Urartu, and we may wonder why a land-locked state in Armenia managed to diffuse culture toward the Aegean while the Hittites, considerably nearer, did not. Urartian bronze work, for instance, has been discovered in the "tomb of Gordios," it is common to the post-Hittite Phrygian ...
