... lies a ruined country which is called Crete, under whose kin. [i .e ., Saturn] the world was without vice." There, at the heart of Mount Ida where Zeus was born of Rhea, there is a vast cavern in which sits a great statue. 195 Dante is going back there to an ancient tradition to be found in Pliny, that an earthquake broke open a cavern in the mountain, where a huge statue was found, of which not much was said, except that it was 46 cubits high; but Dante supplies the description from a famous vision of Daniel, when the prophet was asked by King Nebuchadnezzar to tell him what ...

... very beginning of this nation's march through the centuries. At the dawn of their history the Israelites, an unsettled tribe, came from Canaan to Egypt. There they grew to be a people; there. also, they bore the yoke of bondage. Their eventful departure from Egypt is the most treasured recollection of their past. and their traditions tell its story numberless times. The annals of Egypt. we are told, did not preserve any record of this sojourn of the Israelites or of their departure. It is not known when the Exodus occurred, if it happened at all. A few scholars have expressed the opinion that the sojourn of the Israelites, their bondage, ...

... , namely at around 3000 BC. There are references to a flood in the Book of the Dead papyri and he goes on to relate various myths of Creek Indians, the Vikings, the Pawnees, Australian Aborigines, Polynesians and South American tribes. He actually moves some material Mandelkehr dates at 2300 BC back to 3200 BC, especially Chinese traditions, and in a fairly convincing manner. Chinese myth involves the idea of heaven's pillars collapsing, rivers flowing in the opposite direction and the sun moon and stars moving from their positions in the sky. One major factor he dwells on is that the days in the year changed at 3200 BC, another idea of Velikovsky's that he seems ...

154. 'Worlds in Collision' After Heinsohn [Journals] [SIS Review]
... revisions of them are based sometimes on independent grounds but sometimes on the dependence of one on another. In Egypt the original sin' of the conventional chronology (here he follows Velikovsky) is the 19th century pseudo-astronomical Sothic' dating [7 ]. In Mesopotamia, the original sin Heinsohn has discovered is the assumption by 19th century Assyriologists that traditional Biblical chronology is accurate enough for a handful of Biblical names with putative parallels in Mesopotamian texts to be used to anchor Mesopotamian figures in the correct centuries [8 ]. In Hebrew chronology the original sin is ancient - an artefact of the sequence of patriarchs and kings canonised in the Bible itself, with precise dates (many fitting suspiciously ...

... dragon lying hill (in the deep). It is not the time for active doing". This translation is more explicative than true, for the text simply gives the words: "First, nine: a dragon hidden in the water is useless". As to the word ldnr, this is explained by the commentary entitled "Traditions of Ch'eng"4 to mean the "fullness of Yang", because it is three times three, i.e . a multiplication of the undividable number which represents Yang. As the undivided strokes of the diagrams are symbols of Yang and the divided ones of Yin, the meaning of the two first words of the sentence is ...

... eye goddess seem to realize that the goddess is the solitary eye of the one-eyed creator. What makes this oversight particularly noteworthy is that in Egypt, which offers vastly more material on the symbolic eye than any other land, all of the figures of the great goddess are identified as "the Eye of Ra."(22) Buddhist tradition maintained precisely the same connection by asserting that the great goddess Tara was "the eye of the Great Buddha" Clearly, a fundamental theme is present. But lacking an appropriate celestial reference beyond the solar orb, mythologists are compelled to overlook the independent behavior and identity of the eye, leaving a glaring anomaly in the usual treatments of ...

That he did not was due to his having favored Venus as the agent of destruction concerning which, he informed us, there seems to be "adequate evidence".(10) Let us, temporarily, leave Venus aside. What can be said of Gabriel as the planet Mars? According to Joshua Trachtenberg: "An old tradition, dating back at least to Geonic [or Gaonic] times, had it that there are seven archangels, each of whom is associated with a planet "( 11) "The seven archangels, in particular, were believed to play an important part in the universal order through their association with the planets and the constellations." ...

... is difficult to believe that there were two such sacred mountains in close proximity, and that both were acclaimed as the creators of mankind. The tragic eclipse of Atlas, if slightly varied, must have been very similar to the fate of Prometheus. All around were the isles. daughters of Atlas, as also the seven Pleiades, who traditionally drowned themselves for sorrow of their sire's sufferings excepting only Merope, the "Mortal". Lake Triton was included in the area about Mt. Atlas. He was the son of Poseidon and Amphitrite, and shared their golden palace at the bottom of the sea, or, as Homer describes it, at Aegae in the island of ...

... salt. In 1909, Mr. A. W. Johnstone was told by a lady from Fair Isle that Grotti Finnie and Lucky Minnie were well known in her native island, being frequently invoked to frighten naughty children. Although the legend in those parts is in a fragmentary condition, reduced to incoherent survivals, the tenacity of the oral tradition shows how deeply rooted the legend is in these islands. Outside of the Orkneys neither Mysing nor his salt mill are known to tradition except in the songs of the Edda which themselves bear the stamp of Western provenience.

... all eternity, as having repeatedly destroyed and reproduced the world and all its inhabitants. In the sacred volume of the Hindoos, called the Ordinances of Menu, comprising the Indian system of duties religious and civil, we find a preliminary chapter treating of the Creation, in which the cosmogony is known to have been derived from earlier writings and traditions ; and principally from certain hymns of high antiquity, called the Vedas. These hymns were first put together, according to Mr. Colebrooke,* in a connected series, about thirteen centuries before the Christian era, but they appear from internal evidence to have been written at various antecedent periods. In them, as we learn from ...
