Heka, the ancient Egyptian magic

You have come afterwards because I am Heka. Coffin texts, spell 261 [2] First Intermediate Period to Middle Kingdom All religions have a magical aspect [1], ancient religions like the Egyptian, according to which all of creation was animated to some extent, perhaps more so than many others. Through magic the creation had come into being and was sustained by it. Thus, magic was more ancient, and consequently more powerful, than the gods themselves I am one with Atum when he still floated alone in Nun, the waters of chaos, before any of his strength had gone into creating the cosmos. It was also the extraordinary means for acquiring knowledge about one's surroundings - above all the hidden parts of them - and gaining control over them.

Triple deity. Triple goddesses[edit] The Greek goddess Hecate portrayed in triplicate.

Triple deity

In religious iconography or mythological art,[2] three separate beings may represent either a triad who always appear as a group (Greek Moirai, Charites, Erinnyes; Norse Norns; or the Irish Morrígna) or a single deity known from literary sources as having three aspects (Greek Hecate, Diana Nemorensis).[3] In the case of the Irish Brigid it can be ambiguous whether she is a single goddess or three sisters, all named Brigid.[4] The Morrígan also appears sometimes as one being, and at other times as three sisters,[5][6][7][8] as do the three Irish goddesses of sovereignty, Ériu, Fódla and Banba.[9] The Matres or Matronae are usually represented as a group of three but sometimes with as many as 27 (3 × 3 × 3) inscriptions. They were associated with motherhood and fertility.

Indo-European theory[edit] Colonial Pagans and Sleepy Hollow Part II. Welcome to the second installment in my examination of Tim Burton's 1999 opus Sleepy Hollow.

Colonial Pagans and Sleepy Hollow Part II

Sleepy Hollow was of course an adaptation of Washington Irving's legendary short story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, which first introduced the American public to figure that would eventually become a pop culture staple: the Headless Horseman. As was briefly addressed in the first installment of this series, the Headless Horseman is in fact a very old figure with origins in ancient European mythology and fairy tales. Also noted in that installment were several compelling archetypes (including the Triple Goddess, the Wandering Prince and the Evil Stepmother) that appear in the film as well as an underlining spiritual dilemma Burton's Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp), a character deeply scarred by both fundamentalist Christianity and modern rationalism, finds himself confronted with.

With that out of the way I shall begin to examine the film's plot line. Communion. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Communion may refer to:

Mythology[edit] History[edit] Saturnalia. In Roman mythology, Saturn was an agricultural deity who was said to have reigned over the world in the Golden Age, when humans enjoyed the spontaneous bounty of the earth without labor in a state of innocence.

Saturnalia

The revelries of Saturnalia were supposed to reflect the conditions of the lost mythical age, not all of them desirable. The Greek equivalent was the Kronia.[3] Although probably the best-known Roman holiday, Saturnalia as a whole is not described from beginning to end in any single ancient source. Enceladus. In 2005, the Cassini spacecraft started multiple close flybys of Enceladus, revealing its surface and environment in greater detail.

Enceladus

In particular, Cassini discovered a water-rich plume venting from the south polar region of Enceladus.[16] Cryovolcanoes near the south pole shoot geyser-like jets of water vapor, other volatiles, and solid material, including sodium chloride crystals and ice particles, into space, totaling approximately 200 kilograms (440 lb) per second.[15][17][18] Over 100 geysers have been identified.[19] Some of the water vapor falls back as "snow"; the rest escapes, and supplies most of the material making up Saturn's E ring.[20][21] According to NASA scientists, the plumes at Enceladus seem similar in chemical makeup to comets.[22] In 2014, NASA reported that Cassini found evidence for a large south polar subsurface ocean of liquid water within Enceladus with a thickness of around 10 km.[23][24][25]

Saturn. Saturn's interior is probably composed of a core of iron–nickel and rock (silicon and oxygen compounds).

Saturn

This core is surrounded by a deep layer of metallic hydrogen, an intermediate layer of liquid hydrogen and liquid helium, and finally outside the Frenkel line a gaseous outer layer.[15] Saturn has a pale yellow hue due to ammonia crystals in its upper atmosphere. Electrical current within the metallic hydrogen layer is thought to give rise to Saturn's planetary magnetic field, which is weaker than Earth's, but has a magnetic moment 580 times that of Earth due to Saturn's larger size. Saturn's magnetic field strength is around one-twentieth the strength of Jupiter's.[16] The outer atmosphere is generally bland and lacking in contrast, although long-lived features can appear. Wind speeds on Saturn can reach 1,800 km/h (500 m/s), higher than on Jupiter, but not as high as those on Neptune.[17] Physical characteristics. Odin.

Etymology[edit] Odin's name is formed from "óðr" and the suffix "-inn". Old Norse had two different words spelled óðr, one an adjective and the other a noun. The adjective means "mad, frantic, furious, violent",[3] and is cognate with Old English wōd (hence the anglo-saxon Wōden).[4] The noun means "mind, wit, soul, sense" and "song, poetry".[5] Origin[edit] The 7th century Tängelgarda stone shows Odin leading a troop of warriors all bearing rings; Valknut symbols are drawn beneath his horse, which is depicted with four legs.

Well, that doesn't explain the Native American myths about different suns: Given how much system 2 narration going on in all facets of our past/current myths, religion, science, assuming old texts as authority for literal translation is tricky.For example Velikovsky thought venus came out of jupitor infact it came from that direction ( as per C's). If we think Velikovsky translated correctly , then we have to assume that who ever wrote the texts doesn't know about the comet cluster and cycles can happen. As per C's Atlantian's has interplanetary travel capabilities just like our current day car travel ( of course we don't know when, how long they have capability), so atlanteans must have known about these cometary clusters etc. but the Native americans who happens to be remnant descendants (after plenatary flooding) have that understanding ?.

Probably not. Even if they have that understanding, how long it lasted is doubtful. For example941009. Andromeda. Andromeda most commonly refers to: Andromeda may also refer to: Arts and literature[edit] Perseus. Etymology[edit] Because of the obscurity of the name Perseus and the legendary character of its bearer, most etymologists pass it by, on the presumption that it might be pre-Greek; however, the name of Perseus’ native city was Greek and so were the names of his wife and relatives. There is some prospect that it descended into Greek from the Proto-Indo-European language. Saturn *** The Roman God Saturn: Facts & Overview. Questing Beast. Palamedes. Themes.

Note to Submitters: As a result of our recent office move, the post office fire, funding concerns, and neighborhood rioting issues, we are a bit slower responding to submissions than usual.

We are also currently spending a great deal of time responding to submission inquiries and withdrawals--time we don't have the staff for. If you sent us work before late October, it wasn't burned in the October post office fire. We probably still have it and will try to respond as quickly as we can. We take your work as seriously as you do, but we can only do so much at one time with a small, mostly volunteer staff while at the same time literally and figuratively putting out fires.
