Jupiter, Gold, and the Birth of Athene
by Immanuel Velikovsky
Gold-bearing gravel—with ingots in it—originated from outside of the Earth and, if we should look upon the Greek legend of Zeus and the golden rain in Rhodes as containing revealing elements, then the ingots came from Jupiter.(3) It could be meteoric gold, and as to the origin the ancients could err; but the event happened in human memory, actually during the Early Bronze Age, or at its end.(4)
The rain of gold on
The ancient Persians called Venus Tishtrya, “a magnificent and glorious star which Ahura Mazda [i.e., Jupiter] has established as master and overseer of all the stars.” (6) Plutarch described the events in the following terms: “Then Horomazes [Ahura Mazda], having magnified himself to three times his size, removed himself as far from the sun as the sun is distant from the earth . . . and one star, seirios [i.e., Tishtrya, or Venus] he established above all others as a guardian and watcher.” (7)

See Hyginus, Fabulae 63; Apollodorus, The Library II. 4. 1; Horace, Odes, III. 16. 1. Cf. L. Radermacher, “Danae und der goldene Regen,” Archiv fuer Religionswissenschaft 25 (1927), pp. 216ff. Cf. Pindar’s twelfth Pythian and seventh Isthmian odes. A fragment of a lost play of Sophocles (1026) designates Zeus as “chrysomorphos"—having the form of gold. Rains of gold are reported also in the Chinese chronicles. See Abel Remusat, Catalogue des bolides et des aerolithes observees a la Chine et dans les pays voisins (1819), p. 6. The Scythians are said by Herodotos (IV. ) to have venerated certain golden objects which they believed had fallen from the heavens in early times. In the sacred texts of the Hindus it is said that “gold belongs to Brihaspati.” Brihaspati is the planet Jupiter. The

4. [It is a remarkable fact that gold appears only in very recent geological formations. Sir Roderick Impey Murchison dedicated chapter XVII of his geological opus Siluria to this phenomenon: “On the Original Formation of Gold and Its Subsequent Distribution in Debris over Parts of the Earth’s Surface.” He argued, on the basis of his field observations in northern
, that gold is of recent origin:
Whatever may have been the date when the rock was first rendered auriferous [gold-bearing], the date of this great superficial distribution of gold is clearly indicated. For it contains in many places the same remains of extinct fossil quadrupeds that are found in the coarse drift-gravel of
Western Europe. The elephas
primogenius, or Mammoth, bos aurochs, rhinoceros tochorrhinus, with gigantic
stags, and many other species, including large carnivores, were unquestionably
before that period of destruction the denizens of Europe and Siberia.
The period of the distribution of gold in the late Pleistocene strata was that of the mass extinctions of the great quadrupeds at the end of the last ice age. next Murchison tried to determine the time when the rocks were first “impregnated with gold.” He wrote:
Now, it would seem as if these rocks, in the Ural, have been chiefly impregnated with gold, in a comparatively recent period. In the first place, the western flank of the Ural chain offers strong evidence that this golden transfusion had not been effected in this region when the Permian deposits were completed.
No sign of gold was found in these older strata.
Nowhere does it [the Permian debris] contain visible traces of gold or platinum. Had these metals then existed in the Ural mountains, in the quantities which now prevail, many remnants of them must have been washed down together with the other rocks and minerals and have formed part of the old Permian conglomerates. On the other hand, when the much more modern debacles, that destroyed the great animals, and heaped up the piles of gravel above described, proceeded from this chain, then the debris became largely auriferous. It is manifest therefore that the principal impregnation of the rocks with gold—i.e., when the lumps and strings of it were formed—took place in the intervening time.
Sometime between the Permian and the last ice age some event resulted in the infusion of the rocks with gold. Murchison tried to fix the time more precisely:
We cannot believe that it occurred shortly after the Permian era, nore even when any of the secondary rocks were forming; since no golden debris is found in any of the older Tertiary grits and sands which occur in the Siberian flank of the chain. If, then, the mammoth drift be the oldest mass of detritus in which gold occurs abundantly, not only in the Ural, but in many parts of the world, we are led to believe that this noble metal, though for the most part formed in ancient crystalline rocks, or in the igneous rocks which penetrated them, was only abundantly imparted to them in a comparatively recent period—i.e., a short time (in geological language) before the epoch when the very powerful and general denudations took place which destroyed the large extinct mammalia.
In another work of his, The Geology of Russia and the Ural Mountains, Vol. I (
1845), p. 473, Murchison presented his conclusions about the geological events
which accompanied the deposition of gold: London
. . . We conclude that the [Ural] chain became (chiefly) auriferous during the most recent disturbances by which it was affected, and that this took place when the highest peaks were thrown up, when the present watershed was established, and when the syenitic granite and other comparatively recent igneous rocks were erupted along its eastern edges.
5. Murchison, one of the founders of modern geology, insisted that it was during a major geological upheaval that gold became part of the rocks—it was the time of mountains being “thrown up” and molten rock flowing, before solidifying into granite. Murchison next wondered about the “agency” which deposited the gold in the mountains of the Ural and elsewhere. As a geologist he observed that “the material has been chiefl
y accumulated towards the surface of the rocks, and then by the abrasion and dispersion of their superficial parts, the richest golden materials have been spread out. . . .” (Siluria, p. 455).
This last observation is of fundamental importance, in that since the gold was deposited close to the surface, it could not have come from inside the earth.].
Jewelry gold is typically 14 to 16 carrot. !4-carrot is 58.3% gold. Pure gold is 23 carrot.
Jewlers alloy pure gold with brass to make it hard otherwise jewelry would wear out too quick. Wedding rings would get thin and fall off the bride's hand.
My father made a pure gold ring for my mother and my wife has it. She doesn't wear it because it would wear out.
My father had a carrot stick or scratch tester. Its like a key chain only the tips of the keys are made of different percentages of gold marked as carrots. It came with a piece of black slate. You scratch the slate with your gold jewelry and make a parellel scratch pushing down with the same pressure with your scratch tester. You simply match the color of the scratch and read the carrot number off your scratch tester. I lost my father's scratch tester and his centrifugal casting machine when I had to sell our house house in Halibut Cove.
My father's retirement scheme was to counterfeit Spanish gold doubloons and pieces of eight. He actually cast some of them with the lost wax method using gold from his mine south of Fairbanks, Alaska. I have the originals that he used. I think they are replicas. He planned to walk the beach in southern Texas and pretend to find one every month or so and sell them. A guy's got to find a way to retire in these difficult economic times... I thought you would like this story.
I forgot to tell you I write books in my spare time. I don't make any money at it but the radio talk shows like to have me on. I wrote Philosopher's Stone about the white-powder-of-gold carried in the Ark of the covenant. It is actually orbitally rearrange monatomic element gold or ORME's. The higher metals like platinum and gold can combine with all their protons in the nucleus to create large particle with weak atomic forces holding them together. This allows the transmutation of elements to take place with magnetic frequency, Our body does it all the time during cell division. I sell my books on my web sites: www.GuardDogBooks.com and www.AlaskaPublishing.com I don't sell many of my books because people don't understand or believe it.
The electrons pair up rotating in opposite directions. When you got electrons passing each other at twice the speed of light it creates a time field or dimensional field that extends beyond the perimeter of the particle. When you are in a time field you don't attract to gravity. This is antigravity material and it is very abundant on Earth. It is found in the desserts of the South West. Whenever it rains it leaches down forming a band lf white alkaline. This is only one source. It is in sea water and Great Salt lake percipate. It is in the air you breathe and the water you drink. The choral limestone in Florida is a good source. Maybe that is why people live so long in Florida.
When you have a whole box full of these ORMEs like in the Ark that respond to brain waves you can create electric sparks by thinking about it. Amplifying brain waves into millions of volts sends your thoughts out in all directions.The priests and Pharaohs ate the stuff in their specially-prepared priest bread. The hieroglyphic for bread is the only writing in the great pyramid. The gliff for the bread mold is over the door of the King's chamber. This goes right over the heads of the archaeologists who haven't a clue what its all about. They still think the pyramids were built as tombs.
The ARK itself was used it to enslave the people with mind control. They could put voices into the heads of people within a hundred mile radius. They didn't have to pay the people who built he pyramids. They just worked them to death. The white-powder-of-gold ORMEs was used to levitate the stones.
The ARK can be used for good as well as evil. Moses used it to stop whole armies. Legend says that he could stop the heart of opposing generals and put horrible images and voices into the heads of opposing armies causing them to run for their lives. The material can increase your lifespan hundreds of years and increase intelligence but it has side effects.. You read minds and take on all the thoughts of those around you. You have to be psychologically prepared for this sort of thing.
My book, PHILOSOPHER'S STONE contains seven recipes to make the white-powder-of-gold by taking it out of Dead Sea salt, limestone, granite powder, sea water etc., Etc. The recipes are worth millions and the book sells for $20. The Philosopher's Stone can also be transmuted out of pure gold with the electric ark of an ordinary stun gun. http://www.guarddogbooks.com/
