VIDEO: SYMBOLS OF AN ALIEN SKY - DAVID TALBOTT

This video is a ten-minute introduction to a three hour video production presently in development. Other segments, well underway, will follow. Here, the underlying themes are:

* Memories of planetary upheaval in ancient astronomies
* Monumental civilization: commemorating a prior “age of gods and wonders”
* Why did the first astronomers identify the greatest gods as planets towering over the world?
* Archetypal memories of Doomsday
* Other archetypes: golden age, primeval sun, mother goddess, warrior-hero, chaos monster
* Most common form of the chaos monster: the cosmic serpent or dragon



The video is in rough cut, and modifications will be more than likely in coming months, as other segments are completed. The principles stated are far-reaching, but they are not speculations, just facts that are too rarely acknowledged.

One reason for publishing this video in rough-cut form is that, if any statement of fact is exaggerated, or in any way inaccurate, we will want to correct the statement before releasing the first hour. Responses will be carefully reviewed.

I'm predisposed toward the view expressed in Mr. Talbot's alien sky and Saturn Sun models because I was caught up by Velikovsky's "World's in Collision"and other books many years ago and have been a catastrophist for decades. I have read fifty years worth of learned refutations of Velikovsky but remain unconvinced that he was completely wrong. I'm not a scientist and can't follow all the physics which explains why Venus and Mars, etc. could not have acted as described by Dr. Velikovsky. My questions remain: If there is not truth in the concept of planets passing closely and wreaking havoc upon our ancestors then why did they expend such a huge amount of time and energy worrying over little insignificant silvery lights in the sky?
And from where came the awe?

You made some interesting points.

I will have to say that I am a catastrophist as well since the thought that came to my mind while watching this video was the meteor that more than likely caused the decline in the middle east 4,000 years ago.

After that incident, I'm sure those still living were worried about 'silvery lights' in the sky, not to mention green streaks and orange balls. And, I'm sure they passed those stories down.

It's profound to say that a NASA satellite figured out for us something we had no answers for, for 4,000 years. So what will they find next year.

Then my thoughts shift to the civilizations living then that already had some type of belief system outside of polytheism. Some of them had to have thought that the gods, or be it the planets had come down to punish them, when it was just a very large and destructive meteor.

I can also imagine the numerous stories that generated out of that area. It wasn't given a name such as say Gilgamesh for instance so the stories dissipated over time. Or, 'she says facetiously' the rulers were all killed from the meteor so there were no rulers left to worship the meteor god such as Hammurabi worshiped Gilgamesh. Hence, the stories died.

Velikovsky is my cup of tea but anymore I have difficulty putting anything whatsoever in that filing cabinet called truth. I like to keep everything out of there unless it's been tested or at least observed. That way I can enjoy everyone's ideas and stories.

Talbot's voice sells a story. That's a gift that shouldn't be misused. Listeners, especially younger listeners can be sold because that voice can convince without trying. I think you know what I mean.

I am ashamed to admit that I missed the announcements re: "a devastating meteor
impact in the Middle East might have triggered the mysterious collapse of
civilisations more than 4,000 years ago." referring to the Al 'Amarah structure in Iraq.

In investigating it this evening I found some interesting citations at:
cambridge-conference network including the Nov. 2001 announcement and some earlier theoretical statements concerning the widespread failures of various civilizations including Akkad around 2300 BCE.

I might have been caught up in the Sept 11, 2001 hysteria as well as a death in my family at the time and not paying attention.

Anyway I was not aware of the discovery and I agree that it sounds as if it might have offered good cause for watching the sky...

Thanks for informing me.

Hi Maltese Frog: I figured I could get your attention through a post in the Alien Sky post.
