... writhing, bright, elongated thing".(20) Fig 4. When Venus passed through the gas cloud, it's "extended atmosphere"- actually a system of circulating gas and dust- was pressed backwards into the rear part of the Roche lobe. The dotted contour in the figure is the outline of the Roche lobe. The strange, circulating gas-and-dust system of Fig. 4 has very little in common with what we would normally call an atmosphere. Still we shall use this denomination for the lack of something better.(21) It should be noted that the atmosphere's center of gravity was situated well behind the body, so the body attracted the atmosphere and the ...

... If all celestial bodies are charged, including the Moon, then planetary lunacy may be an actuality, for it has been proved that the Moon does indeed influence human behaviour. It is not a folkloric superstition, nor a poetic conceit, but hard, scientific fact. There is something about moonlit nights that affects a number of people in strange ways.... Leonard Ravitz, a neurologist and psychiatric consultant, has discovered a direct physiological connection between man and moon.... Ravitz suggests that, as the moon modifies earth's magnetic field, these changes precipitate crises in people whose mental balance is already rather precarious. "Whatever else we may be, we are ...

243. The Polar Sun [Books]
... myth and astronomy of many lands Saturn's connection with the pole is direct and unequivocal. Chinese astronomers designated the celestial pole as "the Pivot," identifying the "Genie of the Pivot" as the planet Saturn. (4 ) Saturn was believed to have his seat at the pole, reports G. Schlegel. (5 ) This strange and unexplained image of Saturn caught the attention of de Saussure (one of the foremost experts on Chinese astronomy), who added an additional startling fact: the Iranian Kevan, the planet Saturn, also occupies the polar centre. (6 ) But the theme is older than Chinese or Iranian tradition, for it finds its first expression ...

... in terms of its present appearance. How could such a situation arise? Since the inauguration of this journal eight years ago, our readers have been inundated with evidence that the solar system has only recently been subject to wholesale changes; that great cataclysms wreaked havoc with the ancient heavens, displacing "suns" and launching planets into new and strange orbits. With the supplanting of these prim-eval suns and planets- in many ways the focal point of ancient myth and religion- the ancient skywatchers sought substitutes amongst the stars and constellations which appeared in the wake of the cataclysm. Traditions originally associated with the planet Venus, for example, became transferred to Sirius, the brightest star. ...

... remove from history the great and solidly historical feats of Darius I, Xerxes, Cambyses, etc., is paradoxical for a poem which is meant to celebrate the Iranian empire. Presumably Firdausi meant that so long as the Zoroastrian religion reigned, time was holy and thus belonged to myth rather than ordinary history. This is confirmed by a strange statement of the Warners: "Rightly or wrongly, Zoroastrian tradition couples Alexander with Zahhak and Afrasiyab as one of the three arch-enemies of the faith." [n19 Firdausi, vol. 1, p. 59f.] The great myths of the Avestan religion have overcome chronology and reshaped it to their purpose. The true kings of ...

... the tiles of Ramses III in the Museum one that would show the name (or figure) of Ramses III on its face and a Greek' letter (preferably alpha) on its back. My next book, "The Peoples of the Sea" will deal with the period of Ramses III. At this occasion I observe that, strange as it is, but from the entire period of the New Kingdom in Egypt (and of the Late Period as well) there are no radiocarbon datings: Libby published three datings relating to the Old Kingdom, one to the Middle Kingdom, and the next one of the Ptolemaic period. Thus over 1200 years of conventional history are ...

... given us any clue as to how to explain such an obvious discrepancy. '[ 9 ] Since his original article, McCausland has written a book on the subject, The Relativity Question [10]. Other books worth reading on the physical aspects of relativity are Was Einstein Right? by Clifford Will [11], QED - The Strange Theory of Light and Matter by Richard Feynman [12] and there has been some interesting correspondence in the pages of SIS journals [13]. Experiments Because of the extremely high speeds required for relativistic effects, it is very difficult to devise experiments which test key aspects of the theory. For this and other reasons, there is ...

248. Thoth Vol I, No. 10: April 22, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... Brahma, the central light of heaven, was none other than Saturn. This in turn, reminds us of a rarely-noted teaching of the alchemists, preservers of so many ancient mysteries. The planet Saturn, they recalled, was not just a planet; it was "the best sun"! Such language- true sun, best sun- is strangely reminiscent of that language used by native Americans when describing the superior sun, who had presided over the era of peace and plenty. Among the Assyrians and Babylonians, the "sun" -god par excellence was the well-known figure Shamash, the "light of the gods" In countless texts and symbolic representations Shamash is depicted as the ...

... match Indian accounts with scientific accounts and draw conclusions. Crater Lake, for example, erupted around 6500 years ago. The Klamath account and scientific storylines match. But the Klamaths include additional data which cannot be derived from geological versions. According to the Klamaths the eruption occurred simultaneously with an eruption at Mount Shasta and this was preceded by a strange cloud with quickly covered the California peak and must have played a part in its eruption. Moving up the Cascades we come to the Three Sisters which are visible from Eugene just down the road. The Warm Springs Indians say it was once the largest of all Cascade peaks but it erupted rather violently, featuring tidal waves of lava that ...

... of Egypt of earlier generations and of later ones. Especially unusual, and even unprecedented, is the handling of the body of Akhnaton. His head is long, his neck is thin, his abdomen is pendulous, but the most pronounced malformation is in the shape of his thighs: they are swollen. James Breasted wrote: "The strange treatment of the lower limbs by Aklmaton's artists is a problem which still remains unsolved and cannot be wholly accounted for by supposing a malformation of the king's own limbs." But no mannerism in art could be held responsible for the grotesquely enlarged thighs of the king. One of the peculiarities of Akhnaton's body, the extreme elongation of the ...
