Peterson, Ellis (L)
Ellis Peterson (1937- ) is an American of Swedish extraction. He is a retired maths professor and now lives in Pennsylvania. He has a passionate interest in the Scandinavian runes and writes under the nom de plume of ‘Ragnar-Storyteller’. Peterson has some rather odd ideas about combining the runes with Quantum Physics in order to produce a variety of effects including healing.
Peterson has also studied ancient Scandinavian history with particular reference to pre-Columbian visits to the Americas, North and South. He also subscribes to Spanuth’s suggestion that the ‘Sea Peoples’ who invaded Egypt in the 2nd millennium BC were from Scandinavia and should have been designated ‘North Sea Peoples’. In fact, Peterson seems to have adopted most of Spanuth’s principal contentions – amber was Plato’s orichalcum, Phaeton destroyed Atlantis leading to the migration of the Atlantean survivors, proto-Vikings, to migrate south invading Egypt. He also locates the capital, Basileia, off the Danish coast. He has written a number of blogs on this subject(a)(b) .
