... 1977-78, pp. 85-86) by earlier permission of the author and the present permission of SISR. The italicized preface and footnotes marked PJJ were written by Peter J. James in the original printing and are retained here. The Special Issue is a must for those interested in the revised chronology and those readers wishing to purchase a copy should write to R. M. Amelan, 6 Jersey House, Cotton Lane, Manchester 20, England for all the particulars.- LMG. The el-Amarna letters, most scholars believe, date from the 14th century B.C ., while there is no doubt that the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem was constructed in the mid-10th century B ...
192. Indra and Brhaspati- II (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. XI No. 2 (Winter 1986) Home | Issue Contents Forum Indra and Brhaspati- II To the Editor of KRONOS: I had not realized while reading Roger Ashton's article on Brhaspati(1 ) that it was written in code. I had therefore assumed that when writing that "a comparison of these items indicated that Brhaspati and Indra are doubles of each other" and that "they are manifestations, like Zeus and Jove, of one and the same entity", Ashton meant exactly that. In his reply to my critique,(2 ) Ashton now "explains" that what he set forth in his original article "implied" ...
193. KA [Books]
... protective magic. Budge suggests that the god made passes over the nape of the neck to transfer the "fluid of life", sa-ankh. Q-CD vol 12: KA, Ch. 20: Sanctification and Resurrection 241 (From Fetish to God in Ancient Egypt, p.487, Arkana edition). On p.514, Budge writes that Horus embraced the dead body of Osiris, thereby transferring to it his ka. Kings embraced statues of gods in the hope of absorbing life from them. Turning to Egyptian myth, we find that the god Osiris is torn in pieces, that the pieces are found collected and put in a chest. He is then brought back ...
194. The Two Faces of Love [Books] [de Grazia books]
... the corn that is his life. To trees no less there cometh their own hour Of marriage which the gleam of watery things Makes fruitful - Of all these the cause am I. These lines seem to convey what we would expect of a lunar goddess. We are moving far back in time. In a passing reference, Mircea Eliade writes of a "regime brought about by Aphrodite and later governed by Zeus, in which the species are fixed, there is order, balance, and hierarchy."[3 ] I have carried the birth of the Moon back in solar system history to an astronomical catastrophe occurring even before the Age of Saturn. We hear Theopompos quoted ...
195. Clockwork [Books] [de Grazia books]
... the mind and the world of the imagination can be rich and malleable; fat gobs of time can be reduced to frizzled specks, and one can leap over far spaces and epochs. However, intellectualism is also opposed to both physiological and mental time-control in that it forces one to be physically inactive over long stretches of time; research and writing are termite mounds of time and a single footnote, a single bad line, can drive one to despair. Sometimes I think that Deg was one of Alfred Adler's pure compensatory characters, who set himself very often to do precisely what he was unfit to do because of his unfitness. If under such circumstances he was not destroyed by ...
196. The Origins of Modern Geological Theory [Journals] [Kronos]
... carry the attack into the Tory camp in his Reflections on the Decline of Science in England, the purpose of which was to argue that wealthy Tory amateurs had a stranglehold on science policy and were discriminating against socially less well positioned scientists, who were more deserving of support. Charles Lyell (1797 - 1875), to whom he was writing, had just published the second volume of his Principles of Geology (volume I, 1830, volume II, 1832; and volume III, 1833), a work written in support of political liberalism- although ostensibly it was an objective work in science free from any political implications. In his letter of May 3 to Lyell, Babbage ...
197. The Establishment of Gradualism [Books]
... not always an easy task - and drafted the funeral orations (éloges) of deceased members. All these activities served as instruments for disseminating and imposing his personal views about the natural sciences and their methods. So successful was Cuvier in his endeavour that he managed to influence even the historians of natural science. One of the major difficulties in writing the history of the period is precisely Cuvier's often highly misleading testimony on natural sciences in his day" [14: p. 16]. Similarly in debate, he regularly used sarcasm towards a distorted version of his opponent's views in an attempt to win the argument. So we see a picture of Cuvier as gifted scientist and devious ...
198. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... had our intelligence and could do lots of things and have thoughts which were not always very far from those we have nowadays." Rene Gallant's intention, obviously enough, is to demonstrate the above by continuing with references to the achievements of early prehistoric man such as the construction of megaliths like Stonehenge even at a time when there was no writing'. Since the construction of Stonehenge needs the intervention of higher mathematics' it follows that prehistoric man must have been intelligent. Notwithstanding the fact that Rene Gallant has somehow managed to bracket the so-called intelligence of Neolithic man with that of the so-called early historic megalith builders, it may be that the intelligence of early historic man - let ...
199. Seismology, Catastrophe, and Chronology [Journals] [Kronos]
... the Caucasus- and there, too, the similarity of the causes and effects was undeniable. In Cyprus, where he dug at Alasia, he could, once more, establish the very same series of interventions by the frenzied elements of nature. He was so impressed by what he found that during the next few years he put into writing a voluminous work, Stratigraphie comparée, published by Oxford University Press (in French) in 1948. On over six hundred pages supplemented by many tables, he presented this thesis. Several times during the third and second millennia before the present era, the Ancient East was disturbed by stupendous catastrophes; he also found evidence that in the ...
200. Generalists, Specialists, "Pereset", and Ancient Astronomical Awareness [Journals] [Kronos]
... understand the Prst in relation to Prs (Paras), "Persia", then the t must be explained in some way. This problem is mentioned by Lorton (KRONOS II:4 , p. 71): pointing out that "aesthetic" considerations will not explain away our unwanted t, he suggests the argument "that a writing Prst for Persia' is in accordance with a tendency in Egyptian to treat geographical names as feminine... and that in the writing Prst of Ramesses III's texts, the ethnic designation is derived from the geographical name. In fact, the ending (Pl. 6) lends itself to interpretation as a nisbe adjective." I ...
