... its common orbit with Earth, it stayed above the Himalayas in a configuration similar to the arrangement proposed by Saturn Configuration' theorists. According to Ackerman, the effects of these events on Mars were catastrophic: during encounters with Earth, its liquid iron core was exposed and drawn out by the gravitational field, ultimately being suspended in space in strange and twisted shapes' (p . 137), before returning and being reabsorbed when Mars broke away and returned to an orbit nearer Venus. Eventually Mars and its core parted company and the latter went off to become the planet Mercury. The consequences of all this for life on Earth were pretty dramatic too: every 14 or 15 ...

... Section 36. The Seven Tablets of Creation. We here refer to the book "The Seven Tablets of Creation", edited by L.W .King, 2 vols, London 1902. On WIC p.165, V writes: "Venus, with its glowing train, was a very brilliant body; it is therefore not strange that the Chaldeans described it as a bright torch of heaven." Again, on WIC p.170, V writes: "Athena's counterpart in the Assyro-Babylonian pantheon is Astarte (Ishtar) who shatters mountains, bright torch of heaven' at whose appearance heaven and earth quake', who causes darkness and appears in a hurricane. ...

... into a "Dark Age" of several centuries' duration. The Empire was forgotten and its capitals were abandoned until they were reoccupied by the Phrygians and related peoples some four hundred years later. In the meantime, however, to the southeast, Hittite civilisation had begun to flourish again in what O. R. Gurney calls a "strange afterglow which lasted for no less than five centuries" [5 ]. This "afterglow" is so pronounced that most scholars believe that a migration took place, perhaps under pressure from the "Sea Peoples", of Hittites from central Anatolia or related Luwians from Cilicia, to the south-eastern areas that had once been part of the ...

... , even in the event of contact. But contact was not in any degree dreaded; for the elements of all the comets were accurately known. That among them we should look for the agency of the threatened fiery destruction had been for many years considered an inadmissible idea. But wonders and wild fancies had been, of late days, strangely rife among mankind; and although it was only with a few of the ignorant that actual apprehension prevailed, upon the announcement by astronomers of a new comet, yet this announcement was generally received with I know not what of agitation and mistrust. "The elements of the strange orb were immediately calculated, and it was at once conceded ...

... ones we sec about other planets, all moving with great speed, he must have been familiar with two most prominent and commanding features: Its very rapid motion across the firmament, and the ineffable grandeur and majestic glory of the polar heavens. Now we find both these as cosmic memorials petrified almost everywhere in the oldest thought-strata. These very strange survivals plainly attest canopy conditions and with these we will proceed to deal let us try to follow up this investigation philosophically. The telescope tells us that planetary canopies are composed of belts and bands, and that the motion of these canopy portions is so exceeding slow poleward, as to be difficult of detection, and yet this motion is ...

... cit., 29. WHOSE ANGEL? It is said that the Israelites were frightened in their Exodus by the sight of the Angel of Egypt darting through the air, "as he flew to the assistance of the people under his tutelage."[1 ] This tutelary angel was also called Uzza by the Jews [2 ], strangely, because the name is found among the ancient Arabian people in reference to the planet Venus [3 ]. It is to be identified with Seth, god of the Hyksos and the anti-god of the Egyptians, with Lucifer, and Phaeton-Typhon. Hence the "Egypt" referred to is already the conquered Egypt. Uzza is also Azazel ...

... and measures (Rita, Sumerian me: Akkadian: parsu) Thorkild Jacobsen called him very appropriately the "Lord modus operandi" or whether Kronos-Saturn kept giving "all the measures of the whole creation" to Zeus while he himself slept in Ogygia-the-primeval. And there is little doubt, in fact none, that Phaethon (in the strange transformation scenes of successive ages) came to be understood as Saturn. There is the testimony of Erastosthenes' Catasterisms [n6 No. 43 (Robert ed., pp. 194f.) E.g ., Hyginus II 42, dealing with the planets, beginning with Jupiter: "Secunda stella dicitur Solis, quam alii Saturni ...

VIRGIL, Aeneid VI.264 SOCRATES' INIMITABLE HABIT of discussing serious things while telling an improbable story makes it very much worth while to take a closer look at his strange system of rivers. It appears again in Virgil, almost as a set piece. The Aeneid is noble court poetry, and was not intended to say much about the fate of souls; one cannot expect from it the grave explicit Pythagorean indications of Cicero's Dream of Scipio. But while retaining conventional imagery and the official literary grand style ...

... ; in fine, he renounces his belief in the high genealogy of his species, and looks forward, as if in compensation, to the future perfectibility of man in his physical, intellectual, and moral attributes. Let us now proceed to consider what is defective in evidence, and what fallacious in reasoning, in the grounds of these strange conclusions. Blumenbach judiciously observes, that " no general rule can be laid down for determining the distinctness of species, as there is no particular class of characters which can serve as a criterion. In each case we must be guided by analogy and probability" The multitude, in fact, and complexity of the proofs to be weighed ...

It should be stated right now that "fire" is actually a great circle reaching from the North Pole of the celestial sphere to its South Pole, whence such strange utterances as Rigveda 5.13.6 : "Agni! How the felly [n5 The rim of the wheel in which the spokes fit.] the spokes, thus you surround the gods." (Agni is the so-called "fire-god," or the personified fire.)
