Comparative mythologist Ev Cochrane, author of “Martian Metamorphoses”, continues his series on his lifelong research into the themes and archetypes of world mythology.
Previously, Ev presented his investigation into ancient Egyptian traditions which describe the Sun appearing atop a lotus-flower at the time of Creation. According to both David Talbott and Ev Cochrane, such traditions describe a particular phase in the history of the “polar configuration,” one in which Mars (as Horus) was positioned in front of Venus (as the lotus-flower).
In this episode, Ev Cochrane continues his discussion on the lotus-flower in myth, a symbol improbably linked to the sun-gods of various cultures.
