The Jupiter Myth

     
Recent mainstream reconstructions of Solar system history are remarkably comparable to the dynamic planet-god dramas of ancient mythology.

The Nice Model's catastrophic 'Jumping Jupiter' scenario, for example, suggests that all planets were once in a closer, more compact configuration before an encounter between Jupiter and Saturn violently separated them across vaster distances.



Myths and legends worldwide likewise recall Jupiter subduing Saturn in battle, scattering his foes with thunderbolts and sporting horn-like plasma plumes as he retreated into distant darkness atop a massive mountain of polar discharge.



Progressively diminishing in size and splendor, Jupiter was later adored as the red disk of Amun-Ra in Egypt, glorified as the red Marduk star Nibiru in Babylon and exalted as the sun-like star Zedek in rabbinical doctrine.



Comparing cosmologies new and old, The Jupiter Myth explores memories of Jupiter as a Midnight Sun appearing in the southern skies along the ecliptic, significantly distinct from descriptions of Saturn as a Polar Sun in the north.


A live introductory presentation of The Jupiter Myth was delivered on May 17, 2016, at Planet Amnesia's "Celestial Crisis & The Human Record" Conference in Toronto, Ontario.

A privately produced video rendition of this presentation is now available for public review via the video windows embedded above, or by clicking here.

An expanded edition of this material -- including a large-format book and a considerably longer and more inclusive video documentary -- is currently under production.

Your patronage will help make this possible
by:

1) enabling travel to pertinent archeological sites, university libraries and international conferences for continued research and professional networking opportunities;

2) funding the contribution of original artwork and video animations illustrative of cosmological events in the Jovian Silver Age (to replace many of the sourced images appropriated for the above preliminary test production);

3) financing pre- and post-production expenses of the forthcoming book and video documentary, annual web hosting fees for mythsarehistory.com as well as basic per diem costs of living as an independent professional researcher.

Becoming a Myths are History patron will also offer you exclusive access to a private forum where periodic updates and previews of new developments for The Jupiter Myth will accompany opportunities for community conversations and collaborative contributions.

Goals
$41 of $500 per month
When The Jupiter Myth Patreon campaign reaches at least $500 per month I will be able to devote myself full time to the project's goals -- with an eye towards developing the proposed sequel, The Mercury Myth.

Alongside these immediate goals, there is the potential for the development of a new interdisciplinary journal, to feature the work of a new generation of brilliant minds working in a diverse but unified array of scientific fields.

As longer-range goals are brought to fruition, a more concerted effort at ushering in a revaluation of comparative mythology, archaeoastronomy and traditional esotericism can be launched in the context of a larger international group effort supporting a new series of annual conferences.

We stand now at the beginning of a new scientific revolution that has already begun to shake the foundations of the old paradigm, in great need of harmonious collaborations that will provide future generations with a more meaningful and integral way of relating to the cosmos at large. Only through understanding what happened to us in the past and how we got to where we are today can we have hope for a more holistic future for the generations yet to come.
