201. Sun, Moon and Sothis [advert] [Aeon Journal $]
... the Egyptian calendar in 365 x 4= 1460 Julian years (that is, one Sothic period). Egypt's Middle Kingdom has conventionally been dated to some 4000 years ago, largely on the basis of documents indicating a heliacal rising of Sirius on Pharmuthi 16 in Year 7 of Sesostris III (in -1871, according to Parker.) From the Canopus Decree, Rose shows that the first heliacal rising of Sirius on Payni 1 was in -238. This, together with Censorinus' report that a heliacal rising of Sirius took place on Thoth 1 in the year +139, makes it possible to retrocalculate earlier Sothic dates much more precisely than ever before. It then turns out that the Middle Kingdom lunar documents fail to fit in the early second millennium! Rose finds that where the lunar documents do fit extremely well is in the fourth century-- which would put the heliacal rising of Sirius in -394. He then argues that the Middle Kingdom ended in -331, when Alexander the Great occupied Egypt! The shifting of the Middle Kingdom by an entire Sothic period ...

Was it Giorgio de Santillana that claimed that the word "superstition" as it originated meant leftovers of ancient knowledge"? Superstition does not originate without a reason. Why was the number 13 considered unlucky by the Egyptians? Why do the Hebrews associate the destruction of the Passover with the same number? Was it because the catastrophe which befell the land of Egypt occurred on the 13th day of Thoth? But how about Friday the 13th? Noting that the days of the week are associated with the Seven Planets (see "The Planetary Week" in a future issue), we find that Friday is Venus. Is this association a mere coincidence, or was Venus involved in some ancient natural catastrophe? As Alice said, "Curiouser and curiouser." W.J. Douglas ...

It is clear that these words are also cognate with many of the names (Ishtar, Astarte, Asherah, Ashteroth) of the goddess identified with the planet Venus. The radiant Venus may have been at one time the only star-shaped light visible in the sky, and the star-words may be derived from the proper name rather than vice versa. A most extraordinary thing however, is that the word 'disaster' said to derive, via French from the Italian disastro derived in turn from the Latin 'astrum', a star OR planet. But 'dis-' is a Latin prefix signifying deviation. Is there no attestation for a Latin 'disastrum' (deviating star or planet)? (The ...

Thoth of the Egyptians, Nebo and Nergal of the Babylonians, Mithra and Mazda of the Persians, Vishnu and Shiva of the Hindus, Huitzilopochtli and Quetzalcoatl of the Mexicans, were personifications of planets; innumerable hymns were dedicated to them and adventures and exploits ascribed to them. ?

While the spiral shapes suggest the clouds are twisting, future observations will be needed to confirm that." I would like you to note the exceedingly weak explanation for the formation of the " ...

... windblown dust covered much of the terrain.” What is meant by “wind” is taken for granted, which means that the assumptions underlying it derive from past human experience on Earth. These unquestioned geocentric and anthropocentric assumptions have repeatedly generated problems for space explorers trying to explain features off Earth. In an unfamiliar environment, familiar assumptions need to be questioned. One needs to ask, “What else could it be?” One needs to try out different assumptions. (See the essay at http://www.kronia.com/thoth/thothV01.txt titled “Error Probes, Truth Probes, and Space Probes.”) The Electric Universe begins with different assumptions and therewith raises further questions. It may agree with conventional theory that wind is the agent of erosion, but with more than one explanation for wind, the further question is, “What is the agent of wind?” Conventional theory explains wind solely as the result of convection and gas kinetics. The Electric Universe recognizes that electric discharges also generate wind. Electromagnetic forces in plasma move and accelerate charged ...

(See the discussion of transverse ridges on Mars at http://www.holoscience.com/news/wateronmars.html toward the end of the article.) But that s not the only possibility. Because Mars was likely caught up in at least one recent event of planetary catastrophism, present conditions on Mars are unlikely to be the key to its past. (See the essay at http://www.kronia.com/thoth/ThotIV11.txt “The Uniformitarian Principle.”) The atmosphere may have been significantly denser in the past and the winds a lot stronger. There would still have been electrical effects: We have always lived, after all, in a plasma universe. Whether these ridges and grooves were caused primarily by electrical or mechanical agents, whether they are associated with the formation of Olympus Mons, whether they are the result of a separate episode of planetary catastrophism, or whether they have another origin are open questions.

At the center a blue dot is visible which is the old core of the star, known as a white dwarf. It is still not known exactly how the star throws off the gas that becomes the nebula.” The instrumentation of the space age trampled that idea into obsolescence. (See “Beyond Dark and Empty” at http://www.kronia.com/thoth/thoVII01.txt) Clearer and more detailed images from space telescopes, in other-than-optical light, and with electronic sensors have revealed that planetary nebulae have an axial structure that exhibits bipolar symmetry. The accepted explanation is now that typified by this caption to March 22, 2003, APOD: “This planetary nebula's simple, graceful appearance is thought to be due to perspective our view from planet Earth looking straight into what is actually a barrel-shaped cloud of gas shrugged off by a dying central star.” This time the caption neglected to ...

The light from the inner bright spot shows a z of only 0.31. In the Big Bang theory, z is a measure of distance, so the four outside bright spots must be far away (astronomically speaking) and the inside bright spot must be nearby.

The name of Stephen Jay Gould is likely familiar to readers of commentaries about contemporary science. Alas, Immanuel Velikovsky's name is not as well known to these same readers. An explanation for this will become apparent long before readers finish Stephen Jay Gould and Immanuel Velikovsky. The book offers important incidents in the continuing Velikovsky Affair. Stephen Jay Gould and Immanuel Velikovsky touches upon the incidents as the scholars attempt to censor Velikovsky and keep his work out of the public eye. The most opposing scholars will admit is that Velikovsky's book is an example of an outrageous misinterpretation of the real facts of the Earth's and mankind's history. His equally qualified supporters disagree. Their book is a documentary which presents several episodes staged to tyrannize Immanuel Velikovsky and besmirch his reputation ...

There is something to be made of Moses' name. It is clearly Egyptian, meaning "child" or "son" [8 and lacks the surname or prefix as, for example, in the pharaoh's name, Thoth-Moses, or "Child of the God, Thoth" (Mercury, Hermes). A variant theory says Moses means the "born one" in Egyptian, which is only a clumsy version of "child." Buber says: "That Moses bears an Egyptian name, no matter whether it means 'born, child (of somebody)' or something like 'seed of the pond, of the water,' is part of the historical character of the situation; he seems to derive from a largely Egyptianized section of the people."

June 7, 1997 Velikovsky And Planetary Catastrophe By David Talbott (dtalbott@teleport.com) In confronting the strange consistency of planetary mythology one must ultimately ask the question asked more than 45 years ago by Immanuel Velikovsky, author of World in Collision. At the heart of Velikovsky's controversial thesis was a seemingly outrageous idea. He claimed that planets, moving on quite different courses than observed today, formerly disturbed the motions of the Earth and caused great destruction to ancient nations. These extraordinary events, Velikovsky claimed, are recorded in ancient chronicles, myths and rites around the world, sources that are simply incomprehensible in terms of celestial motions today. Velikovsky contended that the planet Venus, just a few thousand years ago, possessed a spectacular, comet-like "tail" and its orbit intersected that of the Earth. Though Velikovsky's interest in the subject began with a reading of biblical accounts of the Exodus period, the plagues of Egypt, and ...

Radiation was attributed to the five planets visible to the naked eye, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. The eye was thought to be a source of radiation. Axe, hoe, spear and arrow were symbols of lightning and radiation. Seven is an important number, being five plus the sun and moon. The Cretan goddess is concerned, like Artemis, with both animals and radiation. Thoth, the Egyptian god of electricity who was equated with the Greek Hermes and the Roman Mercury, was active in the sky. He restarted Ra's boat when it had stopped. This Egyptian story is in harmony with accounts from elsewhere, such as the record of phenomena at the battle of Beth Horon after the Exodus, during the invasion of Palestine by the Hebrews under Joshua [Joshua X: 13.

His obduracy, of which the Bible makes much, is to a certain degree rational and prompted by his knowing full well that the Hebrew complaint was almost entirely political and economic. It was Moses' scientific renown, coupled with the increasingly terrible natural manifestations, that prompted the Pharaoh to conduct the negotiations on Moses' religious grounds.
