171. Cuban Prehistory [Journals] [Kronos]
... , nor did they possess any system of inscriptions such as the Mayan glyphs that still tantalize scholars, ranging from classical archaeology to computational cryptology. Strangely, in view of the proximity of Cuba's westernmost extension to the Yucatan peninsula, there is not the slightest evidence of any contact between the Maya and the Cuban aborigines. Nor, are their traditions, legends, and myths available to us. As peoples, the Cuban aborigines ceased to exist within the first century after the Spanish conquest. The greatest monument to them is poignantly negative: La Historia de la Destrucción de las Indias, by Father Bartolomé de las Casas- an impassioned denunciation of the pitiless extermination of the natives of ...

... this hypothesis, one the fact that no other culture has recorded such an event and secondly that the amount of material excavated from the crater would have meant the material that achieved escape velocity would have caused a major earth catastrophe. The early New Zealand South Island Maori culture of the Moa hunter period has left evidence in the form of oral traditions (no written language) that their culture was almost totally annihilated by a catastrophic event they called "Te Ahi Te tipua Te Kohuru O Tamaatea" which could be deciphered as the mysterious destructive fires from space. Traditions tell of stones and fires falling from space, which destroyed the forests, the Moa, other birds and the greater ...

... From: Aeon V:6 (Aug 2000) Home | Issue Contents Paradise- The Lost Frontier: Early Voyages to the Forbidden Isles Gunnar Thompson Regardless of what and where the original Paradise was, people from most religious traditions regarded it as an earthly region of eternal bliss. Its legendary location was not a secret: Paradise was believed to be situated across the Great Sea. Asians looked eastward to the rising sun and believed that the "Isle of Immortals" was in that direction. Romans, Egyptians, and Greeks looked westward to the setting sun and believed that the "Fortunate Isles" would be found somewhere across the Atlantic Ocean. It was not, therefore ...

... of Sumer with blood [20]. If this also is a reference to a human massacre why is there no mention of corpses, and under what circumstances would they be dumped in palm-groves and vineyards? Clearly, what is described is not a localised phenomenon originating with man but something outside and beyond normal experience. Similarly, there are traditions from many parts of the ancient world which tell of the phenomenon of blood all over the land. From ancient Egypt there is the text The Deliverance of Mankind from Destruction', which dates from about 2100 BC [21] and details the destructive activities of the cow goddess Hathor on her first visit to Earth (see below) ...

... that "Shadow of Death" was the designation given to the conditions that followed the visitation of a wandering celestial body, in later centuries to become the planet Venus; and I quoted a neglected verse of Jeremiah (2 :6 ) about the generation of the desert that groped in the Shadow of Death, and of which the Hebrew tradition persists that all of it was doomed to perish in the desert. Germanic mythology refers to it as Goetterdaemmerung. Ancient Mexican traditions preserved in sacred services speak of the profound gloom that for a quarter of a century enveloped the Western continent, and I repeat here one summarising quote by Charles Ètienne Brasseur, the nineteenth-century explorer and archaeologist: ...

... achievement who accrete more and more legends around them as their authority consolidates itself over a larger and larger cultural unity. This skepticism is by no means baseless, and much of the sophistication of modern scholarship lies in the way it has learned to draw attention to the dynamics of legend-building. The "high criticism" argues that the longer a tradition persists, be it in religion, literature, history, politics, science-and the larger the area over which that tradition extends itself, the more important it becomes to make people believe that the tradition had a founder of the highest authority, and hence the readier later ages are to attribute to the founder lofty and god-like accomplishments. The ...

177. Four Faces of Collective Psychology [Journals] [Horus]
... " in relation to psychology appears frequently; but this topic, itself, has not yet received specific and definitive treatment. Quite clearly, collective psychology is a different approach to human behavior, something that goes beyond individual, clinical or ideographic representations of human activity. In most cases it makes a quantum leap from more confined, limited, traditional spheres of understanding to the far more ethereal orbit of mass behavior, the behavior of peoples, if not mankind itself. Some of these more controversial quantum leaps are the subject of this paper. Collective Behaviorism:If one puts a white rat in a laboratory Skinnerbox and reduces its body weight to 80% of normal (so that ...

... ' ( 'Esh' then being a contracted form of Ish' = Man') if one were to uphold the suggested identification of Ish-ba'al with Mut-bahlu. But Brad's representation of the evidence is misleading. Although the Chronicler's rendering of the name as Esh-ba'al seems to some extent to recall the original form of this king's name, the Chronicler's tradition is late (Chronicles was edited no earlier than 500 BC) and cannot, to my view, be used as an argument against Ish-ba'al as having been the original form of the name of Saul's immediate successor. Indeed, I would suggest that Ish-ba'al rather than Esh-ba'al (the latter name indeed lacks the yodh' in Hebrew and consequently ...

Sweeney Abraham, according to Hebrew tradition, was the founding father of Israel. To him, it was said, God promised a progeny more numerous than the stars. A native of Ur in Mesopotamia, he was told to leave his home and his father's house for a land that would belong to his descendants forever. After years of wandering, his tribe did reach the promised country, but found there only famine. Canaan, the land of promise, bordered on Egypt, and it was here that Abraham led his people in ...
