KRONOS Vol. I, Issue 1

In Memoriam

John V. Myers, Ph.D.

(1916-1974)

He liked to kiddingly refer to himself as John the Hermit. But his preference for his solitude was intellectually motivated. Not wishing to be disturbed by the trivia of the mundane world, Dr. Myers chose seclusion in order to actively pursue his scholarly interests-which were manifold. Indeed the last year of his life had been spent in continuous serious research and writing. An imaginative thinker and copious author, Dr. Myers could knowledgeably move from the Judeo-Christian Bible to the Mayan Popol Vuh with equal facility. He was a thorough and meticulous scholar, as much at home with pre-Columbian civilization as he was with Arthurian literature, Biblical material and Velikovskian theories of catastrophism and collective amnesia.

When death rudely and abruptly claimed his mortality, Dr. Myers died in the midst of work surrounded by notes, numerous manuscripts being readied for publication, and a partially typed page still in his typewriter. His work is far from lost, however, and not only appears in part in the present pages of KRONOS but will also appear in future issues as well. Eventually, it will be incorporated in a much larger opus titled Jesus Christ, Morning Star where his name will stand in authorial recognition alongside those of two of his former colleagues.

It was John's dream that another journal, based in the East and devoted to Velikovskian and interdisciplinary studies, should be established. That dream is now a solid reality and in a way, then, this issue is doubly dedicated, and had he been alive today, John would have most certainly been one of its Senior Editors.

Once, another John -- of Patmos -- also had a vision. May it serve as an epitaph for one who is deeply missed.

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband and I heard a great voice from the throne saying, "Behold, the dwelling of God is with men. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them; he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away." . . . Then he showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month- and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

Au revoir John.
