Conflicting Essays in scholarship which have been the most engaging research job I have ever done. I have also added, over the years, queries about our "dated" geology with their "computerized" confirmations together with climate changes denied since 1963. The Ten-O'clock News have been telling us to change our clocks for DSL and back again BUT no one as noticed it has been changed, more than a few years ago, from March 31 and October 31, to a week or so earlier or even a week or so later.

The Green Boy on Wheels of Fire
The Asian Version of the Aztec Twin Comet Quetzalcoatl
     The Chinese version of Quetzalcoatl was "the Green Boy with flaming wheels of fire under his feet." This male version of the stepmother of Snow White can be found in The Journey to the West, the story of a Monkey King "who was born from a stone egg far across the ocean/sea to the east." A very popular story from the T'ang Dynasty in the VIII century AD.[1] The yoke around his neck and waist skirt both appear to be the Chinese version of the "venus" glyph, so popularly called the Venus Planet. Yet the planet never moved so fast that it could have been on wheels.

      It actually has an orbit around the Earth that returns in eight year cycles. So it would appear in the first orbit say, coming from the east and does not reappear in the east until the next year eight different times. My co-worker at the motel where I worked, gave me his chart of Venus, the planet, for those eight years. His chart ended in the year 2012 and it contained all the planet's azimuthal (degrees) sightings because he found that it was as regular as clockwork.

       It appears to me, that if the event was astronomy, then the whole world would have seen the same thing, so there would have been nothing strange about the Chinese, thinking that the Green Boy with fire at his feet, moved across the sky for the first time. . . . so they claimed that the comet was a boy, and not a man-size yet. At a time, when there were no Palomar or Greenwich observatories, nor radios, or even telephones, the description was appropriate.

     Yet, the story was said to have begun in Persia in the XI-th century AD, not Peru or Mesoamerica. The author of the original story was thought to be Ferdowsi. [2] Even though it came from the well-known story of many more sources than Disney ever imagined existed. It swept the continent as one of the many stories of the great knights of warrior status, who came to magically save their princesses. Children were eager to hear about knights and princesses who were threatened by the dragons.

      This reminds me of another memory of mine, about a calendar that was designed to convert from the Cesarean calendar to the Christian calendar, an event of the XIII-th century AD. The message, with that calendar, claimed that the process was so simple that even a child could do it easily. [3]

     Myths [Fairy Tales] are for children. Parables are for grown-ups and Truth is to be ignored as "Logic" laboriously pulled out of a complex system of analogies, syllogisms, and other complex methods of reasoning. It makes perfect sense for Logic to be presented as an adult think process, but the real truth is  meant to be found with children's simplicity; something that a person studying Logic would never dream of considering as valid knowledge.

     Looking down his nose sternly, a knowledgable professor could easily cower any bright student of philosophy in about two seconds. And they would never again mention any detail they had suddenly visualized after reading a myth or a Fairy Tale to their small children. Emphasizing "a more Intelligent level of study" instead of silly myths or fairy tales is a great way to guard closely information that was in the process of government censorship and apt to be wiped out completely from the history books.
