One of the biggest schisms among catastrophists is the disagreement on the identification of celestial culprits that caused earth catastrophes. Barring solar outbursts and exploding supernovas, this means planets, comets or a class of rocky bodies careening through the earth’s atmosphere called bolides. Astronomers regard bolides as flaming meteors, while Geologists classify bolides as anything from meteors to asteroids, as long as they impact the earth’s surface.
Homo Schizo or Homo Schizotypus is a term that Alfred de Grazia appreciated and used to describe the current human species, feeling it more apt than Homo Sapiens. He wrote about this phenomenon in two books, Homo Schizo I and Homo Schizo II.
Sapiens in Latin means “the wise one,” Schizo in Latin means “to split apart.” De Grazia thought that the condition of being split apart from oneself, as in being of split personality, was the greater hallmark of a human being.
The upcoming “Celestial Crisis and the Human Record” Toronto conference will offer an interpretation of ancient history that mainstream academia refuses to explore.
Its central tenet is that the earth, its biosphere, and human culture have been profoundly impacted by forces emanating from the sky. Though it is recognized that volcanoes, earthquakes, lightning, tsunamis and all manner of violent weather have periodically wrought havoc on the surface of the earth, the driver for the greatest cataclysmic periods of history came from celestial influences.
