131. King Solomon's Mines? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Indaba, My Children" by Vuzumazulu Credo Mutwa, published by Blue Crane Books of Johannesburg. This fascinating book is a long history of Mutwa's tribe; after a wonderful poem on "The Tree of Life", a sort of Genesis myth, the first part contains the story of the "first red people". In the African tradition related by Mutwa, the "First Red Race" - the Amarire - became extinct after their crippled tyrant created "living metal locusts" (Spacecraft) and sent them into space to capture Ninavanhoe-Ma, the Mother of Creation and wife of the "Tree of Life". The latter then appeared in the main square of their floating ...
132. Squaring the Circle -- An Esoteric Tradition? [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History VIII:2 (July 1986) Home | Issue Contents INTERACTION Squaring the Circle- An Esoteric Tradition?M.D . Stern The problems of Egyptian chronology that have been analyzed so brilliantly by Velikovsky [l ] seem to be based on a dispute as to the relative historic merits of the Bible as opposed to the Egyptian priest-historian Manetho of the third century B.C . It is a common assumption since the 18th century of Enlightenment that the Bible is essentially inaccurate and confuses myth with a dim recollection of historical events, and therefore cannot be relied upon. On the other hand, classical authors are assumed to be objective reporters of ...
133. Saturnists Play Marbles [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... . While I am not aware of any major mythological themes that have not been "assimilated" to the Saturn theory- dragon combat, deluge, dying god, warrior hero, ancient sun-god, clown, etc. --it stands to reason that there must be some. Eric: I am assuming that if the answer is that most important mythological traditions have indeed been considered it is because those are regarded as the oldest and most reliable ones to testthe theory on. Dwardu: Correct. Ev: Again I would agree with Dwardu with the caveat that myths first committed to writing in relatively recent times- such as the Irish traditions surrounding Cuchulainn- often preserve very old themes, while some ...
134. Velikovsky's Legacy [Articles]
... in Collision in 1950. Velikovsky demonstrated once and for all-as if any such demonstration were necessary-that it is possible to read the Classics and contribute to various branches of knowledge without a PhD in one specialized field or another, and without belonging to one of the more prestigious academic institutions. What Heinrich Schliemann-yet another rank amateur-did for the resurrection of Greek tradition, Velikovsky performed for the entire human race: Nothing less than a resurrection and reinvigoration of our cultural heritage. Like Darwin, Freud and other intellectual catalysts throughout history, Velikovsky is not only important for what he added to the storehouse of knowledge, but for the bold new questions posed and hitherto unimagined horizons exposed. To read Velikovsky ...
135. Pharaoh Seti the (Great and His Foreign Connections - II [Journals] [Kronos]
... (Great and His Foreign Connections - II George Robert Talbott Editor's Note: The present article is a continuation of Dr. Talbott's earlier paper on Seti the Great which appeared in KRONOS V:3 (Spring 1980), pp. 23-35. - LMG Part II Seti's Cenotaph and Archaic Mystery Religions LOCAL AND GLOBAL DIRECTIONS AND THEOLOGIES In more traditional areas of the Moslem Middle East, blasphemy is a capital offense. To mock the Holy Names is not tolerated. Serious religion is the most stringent possible control over individual behaviour; and when blasphemy - as individual assertion or declaration of independence - is punished severely, not to say violently, the controlling institution is merely asserting and assuring ...
... when he climbs up, he tells tales. Tale of the Ostyaks of the lrtysh THE KALEVALA is vaguely known by the general public as the national epic of Finland. It is a tale of wild fancy, enticing absurdity and wonderfully primitive traits, actually magical and cosmological throughout. It is all the more important in that the Ugro-Finnic, tradition has different roots from Indo-European ones. Until the 19th century the epic existed only in fragments entrusted to oral transmission among peasants. From 1820 to 1849, Dr. Elias Lonnrot undertook to collect them in writing, wandering from place to place in the most remote districts, living with the peasantry, and putting together what he heard into ...
137. Quartered At Yale [Journals] [Kronos]
... 14th ed.), and the author of the article is Latourette. An earlier authority, P. du Halde, in the second volume of his History of China, says that "should anybody question the historicity of Yao, he would not only be ridiculed, but severely chastised." (He would probably be handled like a traditional Jew who questioned the existence of Moses.) "The history of China preceding his [Yao's] reign is ascribed to the mythical period of the Chinese past," I wrote in Worlds in Collision (pp. 100-101). "In the days of Yahou [Yao] the event occurred which separates the almost obliterated and very ...
138. The Memphite Tomb of Haremheb [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... ) Home | Issue Contents The Memphite Tomb of Haremheb Geoffrey Martin Summary The tomb for Horemheb at Memphis was prepared before he came to rule Egypt - his final resting place was in the Valley of the Kings. Thus it provides valuable insight into the later years of the Amarna period, while Horemheb was a high-ranking official. A preponderance of traditional artwork is found, though with some portions in the Amarna style. The most informative surviving sections are those depicting his military career during Tutankhamun's reign. Content Horemheb was one of the most senior officials in the court of Tutankhamun, with regent amongst his titles. In this capacity, and as commander of the army he effectively governed Egypt ...
139. Velikovsky's Sources Volume One [Books]
... .19:9 ) more than a little mystifying. On the other hand my mystification signifies nothing, since I am equally mystified by the taboo on hewn stone in Ex.20:25. Just how these symbolical accompaniments of God's presence came to be formulated I have no idea. I would suggest that they were well established literary traditions well before the time the Book of Exodus was written. The thunder and lightning that accompany God's manifestations (eg.Ex.19:16) are again, I would suggest, not catastrophic records but literary conventions, in much the same vein as the full moon and the hooting owl that accompany the onset of any decent ghost ...
... of different sorts, and jointed dolls, and fair golden apples from the clear-voiced Hesperides . . . Orpheus the Thracian Though I am not by nature rash or splenetic Yet there is in me something dangerous Which let thy wisdom fear. . . Hamlet, Act V A REASONABLE CASE has been made for the extreme antiquity and continuity of certain traditions concerning the heavens. Even if Amlodhi's Quern, the Grotte and the Sampo as individual myths cannot be traced back beyond the Middle Ages, they are derived in different ways from that great and durable patrimony of astronomical tradition, the Middle East. Now it is time to locate the origin of the image of the Mill, and further ...
