Mullen received his BA in Classics from Harvard. He was a Professor or post-doctoral Fellow at Berkeley, Princeton, Boston University and Harvard's Center for Hellenic Studies and St. John's College. Mullen settled in the Classics Department at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, in 1985. Many catastrophist theories use hieroglyphics from around the world for clues about shapes in the ancient sky that are no longer visible.
Dr. Mullen focuses on Egyptian hieroglyphics as relevant to the Saturn and polar configuration theory. By studying those hieroglyphs which bear no obvious resemblance to things seen today, and by reading them in context, he will show which glyphs are the best clues to what our early ancestors experienced. In this program, we discuss Velikovsky, catastrophe and plasma cosmology as the origins of the Egyptian hieroglyphs.
Catastrophe spawned the myths and stories that inspired the making of the first petroglyphs and rock art as a kind of "proto-hieroglyphs." Mullen tells how he has been attempting to crack the code of the pyramid texts and how it relates to the Saturn polar configuration. In the second hour, Bill talks about Anthony Peratt, who has identified 81 plasma shapes.
Also discussed ... what other hieroglyphs are rooted in these shapes that were visible in the ancient sky. Later, we'll hear about catastrophe and great migration periods that lead to both violent invasions and cultural mingling. At the end, Bill briefly speaks about the Baltic origin of the Homeric epic.
