Plasma Mythology, The Axis Mundi & The Ouroboros

Marinus Anthony van der Sluijs is an independent researcher and writer, and a Consulting Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Philadelphia. He received a Master’s Degree in Comparative and Historical Linguistics at Leiden University, The Netherlands (1999), specializing in the Indo-European and Semitic language families. Since then, he has combined extensive travels around the world with an intensive study of comparative mythology, cultural astronomy, archaeoastronomy and the history of astronomy, religions and art. While publishing articles on these subjects in academic journals, he prepared a comprehensive textbook of worldwide traditions concerning the axis mundi and its possible origins in historical fluctuations of the earth’s electromagnetic environment. Another forthcoming monograph examines the widespread symbol of the ourobóros or ‘tail-biting dragon’ in the light of electromagnetic disturbances of the geomagnetic field. In this program, we discuss “Plasma Mythology” and concepts from Rens’ books, "The Mythology of the World Axis; Exploring the Role of Plasma in World Mythology" and ""The World Axis as an Atmospheric Phenomenon". Topics Discussed: axis mundi, language, mythology, electric universe, catastrophe, the world tree, Neolithic catastrophe related to plasma, sun activity, Kristian Birkeland, creation myths, the Maya, auroral pillars, archetypes, zodiacal light and much more. In the second hour of the program, we dive deeper into the mythology and origins of the dragon myth. We talk about the ancient symbol of the snake eating its own tail, the Ouroboros. Later, we discuss Venus, the winged disk, Yggdrasil and Immanuel Velikovsky. More Topics Discussed: the nine and seven step pyramids among cultures around the globe, Jacob's Ladder, the serpent rope, scalable plasma, shamans and electromagnetic sensitivity, Saturn the “Lord of the Rings” and much more.
