Astral Catastrophic Linguistics

The following is a list of words out of an American dictionary that definitely or probably relate to the planet gods of the Golden Age alignment or to the catastrophic breakup of the cosmos, that ancient benevolent environment or planetary formation.  The major elements of the great disaster were violence, disarray of all that was important in the heavens, displacement of rock and soil material, ice, salt water, wind, fire and electricity, all raining down on the earth.
