"Hopi prophecy warns that nothing should be brought back from the Moon. If this were done, the Hopi warned, the balance of natural and universal laws and forces would be disturbed, resulting in earthquakes, severe changes in weather patterns, and social unrest."
Here are a few other things about that name from "Worlds in Collision" by Immanuel Velikovsky.
"The Chinese annals...say that in the time of Emperor Yahou the sun did not go down for ten days. The world was in flames, and 'in their vast extent' the waters 'over-topped the great heights, threatening the heavens with their floods.' The water of the ocean was heaped up and cast upon the continent of Asia; a great tidal wave swept over the mountains and broke in the middle of the Chinese Empire. The water was caught in the valleys between the mountains, and the land was flooded for decades." [This supposedly corresponds to the same time frame as the Exodus.]
"At the time of the flood [Exodus], the Emperor of China was named Yau (Yah-oo)."
According to the Hebrews, alll nations heard the lawgiving. The earth's groans in the Papyrus Ipuwer were called "years of noise." "Years of noise, There is no end to noise...Oh, that the earth would cease from noise, and tumult (uproar) be no more."
"The great king-lawgiver of China, in whose times a dreadful cataclysm took place and the order of nature was disturbed, bore the name Yahou. In the Preface to the Shu King, attributed to Confucius, it is written: 'Examining into antiquity, we find that the Emperor Yaou was called Fang-heun.' Yahou was a surname given to him in the time following the flood [Exodus], apparently inspired by the sound of the earth's groaning."
"The same sound was heard in those years in the Western Hemisphere or wherever the ancestors of the Indians then lived. They relate that once when the heavens were very close to the earth, all mankind lifted the sky little by little at the repeated shouting 'Yahu,' which rang all over the world."
In the times of Yahou:
1. sun did not set for a number of days
2. forests set on fire
3. vermin filled the country
4. a high wave 'reaching the sky' inundated the land for many years
5. the king sent his astronomers out to chart the four quarters of the heavens as they had been disrupted
6. a new calendar marking year, month, seasons was established
"Chinese chronciles record that 'a brilliant star appeared in the days of Yahu [Yahou].'" It is Velikovsky's theory that this star was the comet/planet Venus/Phaethon/Morning Star which had not been part of the heavens according to antiquity before this time.
The Saturn Myth
As this work documented, several independent mythical themes lead to the same unified conclusion. (This list is a copy from the article in the first issue of Aeon, January 1988.)
1) There was once a sun god different from the present Sun.
2) In former times the planet Saturn was the "sun".
3) The sun god stood within a band or enclosure indicated by the sign (o).
4) Saturn stood within a band or enclosure indicated by the sign (o).
5) The ancient sun god occupied the cosmic center; it did not move.
6) Saturn, the "resting god" occupied the cosmic center; it did not move.
7) The ancient sun god originally stood at the celestial pole.
8) Saturn originally stood at the celestial pole.
Saturn - the father of the gods, that was The Sun of Night!!!!! - what does it all mean
Evidence suggest that the Hopi consist of the descendants of various groups that entered the country from the north, the east, and the south, and that a series of movements covered a period of probably three centuries, and perhaps considerably longer.
Their ancestors, the Anasazi, appear to have been related to the Aztecs of Mexico, and may have arrived in their current location 5 to 10 thousand years ago. In that time, they have developed an intricate ceremonial calendar that has helped them survive and be strong in a place that would not seem to have enough reliable water to sustain life.
Related to people of the various Pueblos to the east, the Hopis never actually had a single group identity--they were independent villages, sharing with the Zuni and other Pueblos a basic culture and view of the sacred, while sharing among themselves their own (Uto-Aztecan) language base.
They are not worshipping the sun, but praying to the Almighty, and the sun is a sign and symbol for that. Native Americans show less interest in an afterlife unlike the Christians. They assume the souls of the dead go to another part of the universe where they have a new existence carrying on everyday activities like they were still alive. They are just in a different world.
The religious and ceremonial life of the Hopi centers in the kiva, which is simply a room, wholly or partly subterranean and entered by way of ladder through an opening in the flat roof. While the membership of the kiva consists principally of men and boys from certain clan or clans, there is no case in which all the members of a kiva belong to one clan- a condition inseparable from the provision that a man may change his kiva membership, and in fact made necessary by the existence of more clans than kivas. It is probable, nevertheless, that originally the kivas were clan institutions."
n the Hopi Medicine Wheel of the Hopi prophecy of the four peoples of the Earth, the cardinal direction North represents the body, plants and animals, the color white and 'white skinned peoples', and Childhood. (can also represent birth, and/or meeting a stranger and learning to trust as in infancy, explained in Erik Erikson's stages of Psychosocial development).
The East is held to represent the mind, air, the color yellow and 'yellow skinned peoples', learning the groups to which people belong and Adolescence.
The South holds the heart, fire, the color red and 'red skinned peoples', and Adulthood.
Finally West holds the spirit, water, the color blue or black, and 'black-skinned peoples' and Elderhood. West also represents the final life stage in the wheel, being an elder and passing on knowledge to the next generation so that the wheel may start again just like the circle it takes after.
In many other tribes, however, the Northern direction corresponds to Adulthood (the White Buffalo), the South represents Childhood (the Serpent), the West represents Adolescence (the Bear) and the Eastern direction represents Death and Re-birth (Eagle). In terms of social dynamics, community building and the use of Circles in Restorative Justice work, the four quadrants of the circle correspond to Introductions.
Star Knowledge - Ant People
Native Americans followed the movements of the celetsial markers - much as we do today. They called it Star Knowledge. Beyond the land where they lived, was the sky, and that beyond were dimensional portals or sky holes. Beyond that was an area that they called the Ocean of Pitch, were the beauty of the night sky and the galaxies spun out towards them. Beyond that were the boundaries of the universe. And that set along the rim at the boundaries of the universe were 4 different exterrestrial groups.
The Hopis called the Pleiadians the Chuhukon, meaning those who cling together. They considered themselves direct descendents of the Pleiadians. The Navajos named the Pleiades the Sparkling Suns or the Delyahey, the home of the Black God. The Iroquois pray to them for happiness. The Cree came to have come to earth from the stars in spirit form first and then became flesh and blood.
Each year a medicine man performs the green corn dance where he takes 7 ears of corn from 7 fields of the 7 clans to insure a healthy harvest. Early Dakota stories speak of the Tiyami home of the ancestors as being the Pleiades. Astronomy tells us that the Pleiades rise with the sun in May and that when you die your spirit returns south to the seven sisters.
They believe that Mythic Mountain is actually the home of the Kachinas. This mountain top is a sacred one. Being the home of the kachina spirits it is the place where all of the large mythic beings they honor in their rituals land. "We come as clouds to bless the Hopi people" is a quote passed from generation to generation.
There are some remarkable drawings that appear to be luminous discs of light in the petroglyphs all along the south west. Photographs of Billy Meier's Pleiadian space and beam ships look just like these rock petroglyphs from long ago.
n this place lived a group of beings they called the Ant People. Drawings of the Ant People bear a strong similarity to the gray aliens, having large heads, short bodies, long spindly fingers, in some cases 4, 5, or 6 digits. Some of these drawings have the indication of telepathic thought waves coming from the beings' head themselves.
Hopi Prophecy speaks of the return of the Blue Kachina - Star People and Star Knowledge - at the end of this cycle of time.
(Note you have to look at the picture yourself)
In the Native American tradition, early Dakota stories speak of the Tiyami home of the ancestors as being the Pleiades; the Hopis called the Pleiadians the 'Chuhukon', meaning those who cling together - they considered themselves direct descendents of the Pleiadians; the Navajos named the Pleiades the 'Sparkling Suns' or the 'Delyahey', the home of the 'Black God', whereas the Cree claim to have come to Earth from the stars in spirit form first and then became flesh and blood. One legend ties the Pleiades to the Savior - on a street in the Holy Land, the Savior smelled the delicious aroma of freshly-baked bread. Entering the shop, the Savior was instantly recognised by the baker who presented Him with a tasty treat and a chance to rest from His labors. In gratitude, the Savior placed the baker, his wife and seven daughters in the Heavens to be safe with Him forever. Some Native Americans believed that all tribes in North America came from the Pleiades. They believe they are descendents of the star system and had been given a task by the Pleiadians to keep the Earth safe.
The Chinese classic called the Hihking tells about "the family of Fuhi," that was saved from a great flood. This ancient story tells that the entire land was flooded; the mountains and everything, however one family survived in a boat. The Chinese consider this man the father of their civilization. This record indicates that Fuhi, his wife, three sons, and three daughters were the only people that escaped the great flood. It is claimed, that he and his family were the only people alive on earth, and repopulated the world.
A 22-year-long flood, caused by the worker god Gong Gong (Common Worker) who as always was striving to overthrow the divine order,
A committee of lesser gods chose Gun to control the flood, and with the help of Owl and Tortoise he strives mightily to do just that. However, partly because of the monster Xiang Liu he is unsuccessful and so the flood drives people to mountains and treetops.
In desperation the supernatural hero Gun dammed up the waters with Growing Soil stolen from heaven. The heavenly ruler Shun discovered the theft and that the application was not fully successful so he killed him. He ordered his son Yu to complete the flood control. To do that Yu is given the soil to control the flood, and dry the land. Then he must kill the nine-human-headed monster Xiang Liu that Gong Gong sent to frustrate the flood control efforts of Yu. When Yu beheads Xiang Liu the blood of the monster further pollutes the soil, and Yu must dig huge pits to store the blood in them, and save the remaining soil.
The soil dug out of the pits is used to create foundations for temples to praise the gods. Yu has worked so hard that half is body is shrivelled up. He loses his hair on his legs and it does not grow back, and his fingernails do not grow. However his prodigious efforts succeeds and the flood is controlled.
Yu calls a meeting of the heavenly gods and condemns Gong Gong and suggests that he be exiled from heaven and earth to prevent anymore disasters. Heaven agrees and Gong Gong is exiled.
Nu Gua is a great creator god. She is a smith god of great potency. When the world is threatened by flood and fire she smelts a five-colored cosmic stone to restore the sky. She then props up the new sky to the eternal mountains by cutting the limbs off a tortoise and placing it under the four cornered earth for stability. She burns reeds and stops and soaks up the flood water with their ashes.
The first born of heaven (Gun) is given the task to stop the flood which Gong Gong has started. He is unable to do so and so heaven kills him. After three days his son Yu is born from his belly and the shamans ressurect Gun in order to mediate between heaven and his son, and all mankind. Yu succeeds at controlling the flood so the order of heaven and earth is restored.
In the official versino used by the Emperor of all dynasties since it was created, the flood begins and snakes and dragons run before the waters creating panic and anarchy. Hibiscus (Shun) orders Yu to control the flood. Working faithfully and diligently Yu digs channels so the water can escape to the sea. Then he drives the snakes and dragons out of the land and order is restored to heaven and earth.
Legends have been reported from nations such as China, Babylon, Mexico, Egypt, Sudan, Syria, Persia, India, Norway, Wales, Ireland, Indonesia, Romania, etc.—composing a list that could go on for many pages (see Perloff, 1999, p. 167). Although the vast number of such legends is surprising, the similarity between much of their content is equally amazing. James Perloff noted:
In 95 percent of the more than two hundred flood legends, the flood was worldwide; in 88 percent, a certain family was favored; in 70 percent, survival was by means of a boat; in 67 percent, animals were also saved; in 66 percent, the flood was due to the wickedness of man; in 66 percent, the survivors had been forewarned; in 57 percent, they ended up on a mountain; in 35 percent, birds were sent out from the boat; and in 9 percent, exactly eight people were spared (p. 168). ....
The Aztecs tell of a worldwide global flood in a story with striking parallels to the biblical deluge. “Only two people, the hero Coxcox and his wife, survived the flood by floating in a boat that came to rest on a mountain” (Schoch, p. 103). Then, soon after the flood, giants constructed a great pyramid in an endeavor to reach the clouds. Such ambition is said to have angered the gods, who scattered the giants with fire sent from the heavens (cf. Genesis 11:1-9).
Arkaim: A Bronze Age Town in the Southern Urals
In 1987, in the middle of the Russian steppe, a team of Russian archaeologists unearthed the ruins of a fortified town called Arkaim, causing great excitement in scientific ranks and a surge of neo-pagan and nationalist enthusiasm among Russian intellectuals. The region was known to have preserved landmarks of the most diverse cultures, ranging from every epoch and every direction of the compass, but Arkaim was the first clear evidence of an ancient advanced culture flourishing on Russian soil.
Constructed on a circular principle around a central square, with about sixty semi-dugout houses built within its ramparts, the settlement was situated in the southern Urals, near the Russian city of Chelyabinsk. It was defended by two concentric ramparts of clay and adobe blocks on a wooden frame, and could only be entered via four intricately constructed passageways that would have made the entrance of enemies extremely difficult. The inhabitants and the common central square were thus well protected by Arkaim’s defensive, inward-turned ground plan. The town was found to be closely aligned to several celestial reference points, and is therefore believed to have been an observatory as well as a fortress, an administrative and a religious centre.
Dubbed “the Russian Stonehenge,” this Bronze age settlement was about 3,600 years old and was contemporaneous with the Cretan-Mycenaean civilisation, with the Egyptian Middle Kingdom and with the Mesopotamian and Indus valley civilisations, and older by several centuries than Homer’s fabled Troy, whose circular layout it so closely resembled. Arkaim was inhabited for 200 years and was then mysteriously burned down and deserted.
....The Russian team’s explorations showed that Arkaim enjoyed an advanced technology for its time. It was equipped with a drainage gutter and storm sewage system and had actually been protected from fire: the timbered flooring of the houses and the houses themselves were imbued with a fireproof substance – a strong compound the remnants of which can still be found in the ruins. Each house gave onto an inner ring road paved with wooden blocks; and in each house there was a hearth, a well, cellars, an oven and provision for a cooled food storage system. The oven was such that it may have been possible to smelt bronze in it, as well as to fire pottery.
.....The truth is that Arkaim was a troy town, so-called after the city in Asia Minor that the Greek king Agammenon destroyed during the Trojan Wars. Built on the same circular principle as Troy, as described in Homer’s Iliad, but at least six hundred years older, Arkaim finds its prototype in Plato’s Atlantis with its three concentric circles of canals; in legendary Electris, the Hyperborean city some said was built under the Pole Star by the sea-god Poseidon; and in Asgard, the sacred city dedicated to the Norse god Odin that is described in the Icelandic saga, the Edda. All these legendary troy towns have the same circular ground plan. They have gone down in history as neolithic Wisdom centres and the seats of ancient god-kings, and this undoubtedly throws light on the cultic function of Arkaim in its day, as we shall see.....
Built in the unique architectural mould of nordic Asgard, the most sacred shrine of the Aesir of which the Prose Edda relates that “men call it Troy,” Arkaim may have been a shrine dedicated to the Aryan Sun religion, yet the roots of its dedication would have lain ultimately in the far older cult of the Pole star. Essentially, this was the religion of the shaman, the wizard, the medicine-man and other wonder-workers in touch with the spirits of nature.
Thus the swastika, thought to be the exclusively Aryan symbol of sun-worship misappropriated by the Nazis,7 and found depicted on many of the clay pots unearthed in Arkaim, is an older religious and metaphysical symbol than that attached to the Aryan Sun God, its roots lying in totemic shamanism. René Guénon, the eminent French esotericist, points out that the swastika, symbolising eternal motion around a motionless centre, is a polar rather than a solar symbol, and as such was a symbol central to the Pole star cult, originally dedicated to a planetary deity connected to Ursa Major, the Great Bear. This centre, Guénon stresses, “constitutes the fixed point known symbolically to all traditions as the ‘pole’ or axis around which the world rotates…” The swastika is therefore known world-wide as the ‘sign of the pole.
How long ago, or for how long, this circumpolar culture may have existed no-one knows: possibly 200,000 years or more. In The Interpretation of Radium, the acclaimed physicist Frederick Soddy stated that some of the beliefs and legends which have come down to us from antiquity may be “evidence of a wholly unknown and unsuspected ancient civilisation of which all other relic has disappeared.”19 There may have been, he suggested, previous cycles in the unrecorded history of the world when civilised men lived “in a past possibly so remote that even the very atoms of civilisation literally have had time to disintegrate.”20
On the basis of years of investigation, Charles Hapgood, a New England professor of history, in 1982 declared that possibly as long ago as 100,000 years BCE the hub of a worldwide maritime civilisation with a highly developed level of scientific knowledge must have been in existence in the Arctic Circle.21 Until lately Hapgood’s finds, presented in Earth’s Shifting Crust (1958) and Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings (1966), have been largely ignored in scientific circles, even though they elicited support from the great physicist Albert Einstein; but today interest in them is mushrooming among a growing number of highly accredited investigators.....
René Guénon appeals to the oldest and most authentic esoteric traditions in claiming that long before the Indo-European races arose, at a time when a hunter-gatherer humanity was still at a primitive stage of development, the tropics were differently distributed and a great Hyperborean culture flourished around the Arctic Circle, “in the Islands of the Blest on the shores of the Ocean where the great maelstrom whirls.”22
Only later, after a catastrophic change in geological conditions, did this senior race migrate southward, some to Central Asia, others, possibly crossing the Bering Strait, to Atlantis to the west. The latter has been located by some researchers in the Antilles, two large islands beyond the Gulf of Mexico widely regarded as the remains of what was once a great sunken landmass.23 (In support of this theory, the Caribs and the tribes of Hispaniola have long had a tradition that many of the islands of the Antilles, a well-known earthquake zone, were once connected by a single landmass, before a great cataclysm about 15,000 years ago submerged the connection and left only the known island fragments.)24
Leaving aside Guénon’s oblique reference to the two southern refuges of the Hyperboreans being in Russia and Central America, he suggests that in both cases the two groups brought with them advanced mathematical and astronomical knowledge and the seeds of arts and sciences that would eventually be passed on to our brute ancestors to become the basis, about eight thousand years ago, for our own civilisations......
Arkaim and the Sun Gods
Modern historians have found that three great floods seem to have occurred in the known span of human history. According to Stephen Oppenheimer in Eden in the East, the third of these, around the fifth millennium BCE, corresponded to Noah’s Flood and was the greatest of the three, peaking during the fourth millennium.33 It caused catastrophic coastal flooding, tsunamis and severe earthquakes, and also desertification of the interior of the land masses, and civilisation disappeared. Once again the species was threatened with a reversion to savagery, and once again salvation appeared from Inner Asia.
In the third millennium BCE, so the Chinese Celestial records tell us, the Sons of the Sun – also known as the Sons of Heaven – fanned out across the world from their homeland in the Karakorum Range at the western end of the Trans-Himalayas, bearing with them the higher revelation of the Sun religion.34 It was a patriarchal and hierarchical belief-system that disclosed new depths of metaphysical and technological knowledge inducive to civilisation. Everywhere the stone circles whose central axis was dedicated to the Pole Star, like Stonehenge in ancient Britain, evolved over a further thousand years into more sophisticated observatories focused instead on the Sun and its circling planets, and human culture once more blossomed.
After careful scrutiny and interpretation of the traditions of ancient peoples and cultures (sacred scriptures, sky charts, astronomical tables, myths, legends and fairy tales) and taking into account geological and paleontological data, Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky (1895-1979) reconstructed the emergence of our epoch in historical time. Although unanimously witnessed by our forebears, corroborated through factual observation of natural phenomena and reconfirmed by recent space exploration, this story now strikes us as incredible, even fantastic, but strangely familiar all the same. Velikovsky formulated a radical new concept of natural and world history, which might well shake the foundations of our present astrophysical concept of the world, of our entire culture, as well as of half a dozen academic disciplines along with it.....
For to this very day, the displacement or suppression of memories relating to those terrible events, which befell our planet earth in most recent times (1500-750 B.C.), – cosmic aberrations that led to the cataclysmic changes which shaped our solar system to its present form, – appears to be no more than a consistent manifestation of a culture caught up in “collective memory-loss.”(1) Part of its pathology apparently consists in not only having no clue as to the most important of its foundations, but in deliberately insisting on ignorance of these facts......
THE TESTIMONY OF THE ANCIENTS
The idea of world epochs ending through catastrophic upheavals was common to all peoples on earth, as was the belief that “at the end of each epoch various miraculous signs would appear, by which the gods would warn the mortals.”(4) The Etruscans, who were skilled and expert star gazers, carefully observed these signs and noted them down in their scriptures. The pre-Socratic philosophers believed that the world was destroyed by floods or firestorms at regular intervals. Hesiod describes four ages and four successive races of humankind destroyed by the wrath of the planetary gods.
Corresponding traditions still exist in Tibet, India, China, Persia, Egypt, with the Incas, Aztecs and Mayas and on the Hawaiian and Polynesian islands. The number of bygone ages varies between four and ten, but the accompanying circumstances of their passing are always described in the same terms. Cosmic upheavals caused gigantic, catastrophic changes that shook this planet, and in each epoch “a different sky [vaulted] over the earth”(5) and a “new sun”(6) appeared. Now, what does this mean, different suns? Has the earth not always revolved around the same sun from time immemorial? Yes, indeed, it has always been the same sun, but its path through the heavens, i.e. the earth’s movement around it and the its rotation around its own axis have differed from one epoch to the next. The priests of ancient Egypt have assured us that in historical times, since Egypt became a kingdom, the sun “on four occasions rose opposite its habitual rising place: twice it rose where it now sets, and twice it set where it now rises.”(7)..........
Similar reports can be found in Plato’s Politeia, Euripides’ Elektra, in the writings of Seneca and the Pythagoreans, in Mexican and Eskimo traditions, in the Talmud and in many other scriptures. In the Qur’an Allah is described as the “Lord of the Two Easts and Lord of the Two Wests”(8). The Kalevala epic states that “the sun occasionally left its path”(9) and the Aztecs recount: “For many years there had been no sun… The chieftains began to look out into the gloom for the expected light, and they placed bets on which part of the sky it might first appear. Some said, ‘Here’, while other said, ‘There’; but when the sun finally rose, it appeared that they all had guessed incorrectly, for none had placed his bet on the East.”(10)......
Chinese reports tell of a “brilliant star”, which appeared in the constellation Yin during the reign of Emperor Jahou and was visible in the daytime, “rivalling the sun in brilliance”(13) less of a star than a “fiery ball”(14). In the daytime, the tail of this comet was visible as a trail of smoke, whereas at night it was seen as a gigantic pillar of fire, a “torch spreading across the entire horizon”(15), at the appearance of which both “Heaven and Earth began to tremble.”(16) On its orbit it approached the earth every fifty-two years. It so happened at the time of the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt that the earth twice passed through the tail of this unlucky star. The first passage was signalled by a fine, reddish dust that fell upon the earth and turned the rivers “into blood,”(17) and brought about a “severe plague.”(18) Red-hot rocks of increasing size began to strike the earth, earthquakes shook the ground and there was an ceaseless, deafening roar. A pitch-black, burning mass (mineral oil) poured forth upon the earth and, drawn up by the gravitational pull of the foreign star, the waters of the sea rose up as a pillar, mile-high above the mountains and visible to all the peoples of the world. The earth’s second passage through the comet’s tail produced a grandiose scenario, which appeared as a colossal battle to the horrified onlookers.......
When the earth passed through the gases, dust, and meteorites of the tail of the comet, dirsturbed in rotation, it proceeded on a distorted orbit. Emerging from the darkness, the Eastern Hemisphere faced the head of the comet. This head only shortly before had passed close to the sun and was in a state of candescence. The night the great earthquake shook the globe was, according to rabbinical literature, as bright as the day of the summer solstice. Becauce of the proximity of the earth, the comet left its own orbit and for a while followed the orbit of the earth. The great ball of the comet retreated, then again approached the earth,......
Emerging from the gases of the comet, the earth seems to have changed the direction of its rotation, and the pillar of smoke moved to the opposite horizon.1 (Cf. Exodus 14:19) The column looked like a gigantic moving serpent.
When the tidal waves rose to their highest point, and the seas were torn apart, a tremendous spark flew between the earth and the globe of the comet, which instantly pushed down the miles-high billows. Meanwhile, the tail of the comet and its head, having become entangled with each other by their close contact with the earth, exchanged violent discharges of electricity. It looked like a battle between the brillant globe and the dark column of smoke. In the exchange of electrical potentials, the tail and the head were attracted one to the other and repelled one from the other.
.....At the time, however, Venus was a “smoking”(22) comet, which had a “beard”(23) or a “mane”(24). It was said: “Fire hangs down from the planet Venus”(25), and “her shining light blazes from one end of the universe to the other.”(26) The Chaldeans called her “marvelous spectacle of heaven”(27), to the Egyptians she was the “spinning star that spreads about its fire in flames”(28). She was the most feared and most venerated planetary goddess of antiquity......
Why does Venus no longer pose a threat to us nowadays? According to Velikovsky, this is because at the beginning of the seventh century she collided with Mars.
“Even though he himself was hurled out of the ring, he still managed to force Venus from an elliptical orbit into an almost circular one. Seen from the earth, Venus was steered from an orbit rising steeply towards the zenith into her present one… Venus, for many centuries the terror of all the world, turned into a tame
Whereas as Michael she had fought with the dragon,
as Lucifer she plunged from high heaven
and “her hands were tied by God.”(34)
The end of the reign of terror, which Venus had upheld for eight centuries, since the days of the exodus from Egypt, moved Isaiah to utter the following words: “How you have fallen from heaven, o Day Star, son of Dawn! (…) You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; above the stars of God I will set my throne on high;”(35) (Isaiah 14/12-13) In Velikovsky’s opinion, more than three-hundred generations of exegetes have tried in vain to interpret this passage.
Whereas Mars through his collision with Venus prevented total catastrophe from befalling the earth, in his new orbit he now became the terror of all peoples; they would anxiously anticipate his return every fifteen years, until on March 23, 687 B.C. he made contact with the earth one final time. Since this last catastrophe, in which the earth staggered about “like one drunk” and was thrown about like a “hanging bed”(36), the solar system has remained as we know it today, and our present era began with a year of twelve months and three-hundred and sixty-five and a quarter day.
n one variant collected in Northern Ostrobothnia in 1803/04, the rune tells:
The blood came forth like a flood
the gore ran like a river:
there was no hummock
and no high mountain
that was not flooded
all from Väinämöinen's toe
from the holy hero's knee.
Marine archaeology has been possible as a scholarly discipline for about 50 years - since the introduction of scuba. In that time, according to Nick Flemming, the doyen of British marine archaeology, only 500 submerged sites have been found worldwide containing the remains of any form of man-made structure or of lithic artefacts. Of these sites only 100 - that's 100 in the whole world! - are more than 3000 years old.
.....In 1997 a chain of mountains almost 2000 kilometres long and more than 3000 metres high was discovered in the South Pacific. Nobody ever knew the mountains were there before because they are under water - as, in fact, is 70 per cent of the earth's surface. Marine archaeologists -- who are looking for targets much smaller than mountain-ranges under the sea -- can therefore be forgiven for finding just 100 submerged sites more than 3000 years old in the past half century. Even at the crude mapping level, it is one of the absurdities of scientific priorities that we now have a better map of the surface of Venus than we do of the 225 million square kilometres of our own planet's sea-floor.

For decades, the "gold aircraft" from Colombia have been considered as some of the most spectacular archaeological finds. The small gold objects are often referred to as "religious decorations" and "animal figurines", but like comparable burial objects from ancient Egypt they display features otherwise known only from modern aviation technology. Such as the delta geometry of the low set wings, the exactly dimensioned tail with the rising rectangular tail fin and the horizontal elevator. Wind tunnel studies at the Aeronautical Institute in New York have confirmed this impressively. Now, airworthy reconstructions of the miniature models have again confirmed what open-minded researchers had long suspected – that these objects could be models of giant airplanes that really did exist once upon a time!
Places of discovery: Tolima tombs in Colombia.
Age: around 500 AD, Tolima style (100 to 1000 AD)
The Kensington Runestone
There are numerous theories about the first authentic discoverer of America: Leif Eriksson and his brothers in the 11th century; 985. A. D. the Viking Bjarn Herlufsson; or maybe Irish monks? This stone is one of the most astonishing fi nds. Most of the scientists suppose that it is a forgery from 19th century. But recent examinations resulted that it is an authentic document. The stone measures about 1 meter in height, 50 cm in breadth and is 10 cm thick. It weights 100 kg. It was found in 1898 by Olof Ohman, Swedish migrators and farmer in Kensington, Minnesota.
Model of an egyptian „light bulb“
As we know today, certain ejectors (fluid entrainment pumps) (A) will produce a relatively strong vacuum, especially if a cascade arrangement is used for the pumps - i.e. several identical components are connected in series. If a glass bulb with two metal parts reaching inside (B), (C) is evacuated, a discharge will occur at a much lower voltage, depending on the size of the glass balloon (D). At a pressure of approximately 40 torr (40mm mercury column), a line of light will wind its way from one metal part to the other (E). If the evacuation is continued, the line widens further until it eventually fills out the entire glass bulb. Exactly what the images in the underground chambers of the Hathor temple suggest.
As shown by the ancient reliefs on the walls of the Egyptian Hathor temple of Dendarah, the pharaoh's priests, just as knowledgeable in science as in religion, must have known the secret of electricity. These reliefs show human figures standing next to bulb-shaped structures. It does not take a stretch of the imagination to recognize these objects as overdimensioned light bulbs. Snakes trapped inside these objects perform a wave-like movement. Do they symbolize electrical discharges? The snakes emanate from the central tip of a lotus flower. An accurate design from the physical point of view. After all, this is exactly the point where the field intensity reaches its maximum in a modern bulb socket. Thus, the lotus flower could be interpreted as the bulb socket, connected via the cable-like hose to some kind of energy store. The entire structure is supported by insulator type Djec pillars with arms, often directly connected with the snakes. Egyptologists refer to the illustrated items as "cult objects" without knowing their original meaning.
Electrical Batteries from the Parthian Period
Thousands of years old electrolytic batteries, 14cm high, with a lead coated iron rod inside a copper cylinder are on display in the National Museum of Baghdad. Bitumen was used as an insulation material for the metals, some of which are presumably unknown alloys. Most of these electrical cells were found in the vicinity of today's capital of Baghdad. They are said to date back to the Parthian period, more than 2000 years ago. In 1978, German Egyptologist and museum director Dr. Arne Eggebrecht demonstrated in the presence of electrical engineers that these objects do actually work. Filled with tartaric, acetic or citric acid, these clay vessels generate an electrical voltage of 0.5V. This proves that the "magic devices" must have been ancient batteries used to gold-plate small figures.

The cult of skull deformations was practiced by several cultures around the globe. A strange practice indeed, spread mainly in ancient Egypt, the Middle East, Africa, North, Central and South America and frequently in China. Some artificially elongated heads, deformed during early childhood, were even found in graves in Bavaria and Lower Austria, too. In more recent times, the deformation of skulls was still practiced in Lapland and on Crete. So far, the purpose of the deformation and why it was practiced all over the world at different times remains unclear. Was it just an ephemeral "ideal of beauty" or the desire to imitate a godly example, a kind of imitation cult?

Under his initiative, the artifact measuring 5.6 inches in length and 7.2 inches of wingspan gave rise to speculations about ancient Egyptians possessing aeronautics technology. Interestingly, this model was found to have a very advanced ‘pusher-glider’ mechanism that can keep it air-borne at speed limits of 45 to 65 mph. Its assumed ability to carry a heavy weight during its flight was greatly attributed to its downward-pointing wings.
Although archaeologists and historians have challenged the existence of airplanes in ancient Egypt, this model has stood its ground as a proof against that for believers. Scientists have also stressed that Egyptians were known to create a miniature prototype of large-scale projects they planned to form. Viewed in that light, this bird-like artifact indeed appears to be a mini plane even to non-professionals.
the ancient Picts could see pollen grains - here is the proof that they could - for they took what they saw and sculpted the images into little stone artefacts.
