... . It is the pillar of the sky which, at the beginning of time, "separated heaven and earth." #9: Lightning is a generative, masculine pillar. It impregnates goddesses. #10: Lighting is a "chain of arrows" launched skyward by a great warrior or hero. #11: Lighting appears as a ladder or backbone of the sky, whose steps were ascended by an ancestral hero. #12: Lightning spirals, twists, or whirls across the heavens.

34. The Saturn Thesis [Aeon Journal $]
... planetary upheavals, but the first signs of interest in myth, including the possibility that ancient myths and pictographs might contain evidence of past natural events-- global catastrophes, cometary intruders, natural spectacles in the sky. Examples would include Victor Clube and William Napier, (3) Fred Hoyle, and the Australian astronomer Duncan Steele, all of whom have resorted to references in myth to substantiate the ancient experience of cosmic catastrophe. Even Carl Sagan and Nancy Dru-yan, (4) notice the prevalence of an ancient symbol, the swastika, and propose a celestial origin for the symbol. It was, according to them, a rotating comet spewing streams of gas into surrounding space. At our symposium in November of 1994, I asked the astronomer Tom Van Flandern if he agreed with this statement: that there is considerable evidence to suggest that ancient civilizations may have arisen in the shadow of celestial catastrophe-- and if so would he agree that ancient myths and symbols deserve careful study and cross-cultural comparison to see if they might point to the nature of the ...

... hyperbolic trajectory and out of the Solar System, never to return. One might speculate here that there were other undocumented satellites of proto-Saturn which were ejected from the Solar System because of the multi-body acceleration, but this would confuse the issue even further. This scenario of Thornhill's electric universe needs a lot more work. An additional investigation into the magnetohydrodynamic universe of Hannes Alfvén wouldn't hurt. Concerning Ev Cochrane's rather good paper (despite philosophical differences) in the same issue, I should perhaps mention the following as it relates to the cosmic swastika [31: It was at a luncheon chat with C. J. Ransom during the 1974 AAAS Conference in San Francisco that he relayed the information concerning the experiment he'd conducted at General Dynamics some years earlier. It was there that he described the multi-armed plasma figures mentioned by Cochrane. [32 From this I myself extrapolated the magnetohydrodynamic character of the Polar Column which, at the time, was still in something of a rudimentary development stage. The following year, I incorporated the bare-bones in my 1975 collection of short essays ...

... form the basis of a new plasma cosmology. Thornhill described a Plasma Focus Device consisting of two tubes, with insulator and capacitor. The plasma discharges travel along the tubes and form radiating 'spokes', shapes identical with Talbott's images, and apparently under rising electric stress they develop an increasing number of arms, which would explain different images and holy numbers. They follow the rotation of an external magnetic field and therefore form curved shapes that have been interpreted in mythology as flowing hair, or Medusa's head, the triskelion, or the swastika. (After the conference, CJ Ransom described a plasma experiment he did in the 60s which preferentially formed 3 and 4 rotating spokes. In AEON Vol. IV:5, p. 26, Dwardu Cardona reproduced from Limits of Uncertainty by Jueneman (Chicago, 1975) this quote from Ransom on his studies of magnetohydrodynamics where ionised gases in a gas cylinder were subjected to a magnetic squeeze: 'as the field frequency and intensity were increased the plasma began to rotate. At one point, if the field was held constant ...

... 1years for their Maha-yuga (Great yuga), which equalled 4,320,000 human years. The first Hindu Age was composed of 4,800 years (1,200 multiplied by 4), and the first of the four pre-Columbian Mexican Ages was also one of 4,800 years. On the outer rim of the Japanese solar symbol (Plate XIII, fig. 5) are sixteen (4 by 4) discs. But the three magatama symbols in the centre of the sun disc form, instead of a swastika, a revolving triskelion, or triquetra, hich the Japanese refer to as the "mitsu-domoe" (" mitsu" means "three").

38. Notes on the Androgynous Comet [SIS C&C Review $]
... " Venus. The close connection of Aphrodite (Aphroditos) with the male aspect of the Venus Star disposes also of the apparently irresistable trend to connect Aphrodite with the moon (23). It has even been maintained that the ankh, termed in the figurative sense the symbol of life, is the source of the Cross: "The Egyptian ankh, the symbol of life, is a combination of male and female. By slight modification it became the cross..." (24). The hooked cross, the swastika, also appears to be related to the ankh: in at least one representation, "the androgynous goddess Ardhanari holds in the middle of her body the' svastica', crux ansata, the cross with the handle, the 'male and female sign'." (25) The androgynous goddess Ardhanari offers a problem which has even been enlarged to an Ardhanarishvara complex. H. Baumann writes (26): "It [an illustraton of the hermaphrodite Ardhanarishvara would not be worth mentioning but for the fact that it bears ...

... of various monsters appear to trace to the same appearance. Dave went on to talk about the "whirling Venus", the Latin _Venus Verticordia_, and various pictographic counterparts in the ancient images of whorls, triskeleons and swastikas. These images also have a counterpart in laboratory plasma effects. Here he cited one laboratory demonstration in particular, in which the whorl-like appendages presented the precise appearance of ancient drawings. In the experiment the number of appendages changed with a change in magnetic strength. This suggests that the triskeleon form and the swastika form were distinguished only by the intensity of electrical stresses on Venus. Were the legs of the triskeleon constituted from the serpentine "hair" of the Medusa, as Dave's suggested? To make his point, Dave showed a Greek image of the Medusa head, with the three triskeleon legs emerging from the radiating hair of the goddess. Dave also discussed the labyrinth and its relationship to the swastika --the latter form often presented at the center of the labyrinth. His contention was that, in a highly active and unstable phase, ...
