Younger Dryas

It is emerging that our Universe is a inter-connected complex matrix of energy and matter, while biological life is a pinnacle of such complexities, certainly, one may not exist without the other.

When it comes to the attributes of life’s intelligent design however, credit is rarely ascribed to intelligence outside of  the human  ‘paradigm ‘ of reductionist logic, of which, designs and technologies and all such functions and form must be made patently clear.

In all examples of human driven invention the directives are clearly stated in terms of the individual stated purpose of any said design, especially if seeking the stamp of approval associated with the rights of the patent holder.

Biological life has no need for patent application nor need for proofs of purpose, for the associations between human life and nature is clearly and ‘essentially’ symbiotic, ”all things working together” there is then, a ensuing and impending case for acknowledging directed logic evident in the designs of life,. 

It has always been quite apparent for the observing participant of this physical life, inasmuch as life displays an underlying and inherent wisdom layered beyond human comprehension, or human capabilities of design.

 ”Modern”  empirical scientific evidence is revealing, and, whilst there are wonderful tools that aid further understanding, our amazing senses are invariably ‘limited’ in viewing the inner function and complexities of bio-life, continuing to step forward with unbiased reasoning is essential for science.  In considering this, peer based reasoning must be made subject to constant scrutiny and revision, if unbiased progression in understanding is indeed paramount.

Whilst science now ‘outlines’ the quantum aspect,  describing inter connectivity at all points of  ”all things” many ancient records long, long ago, were referring to the ‘binding forces’ of ‘spin and turning’  ‘dynamic forces’ that hold all things, many writings attributed intelligence at the center of all directed movement or spin, while today’s science tries to surmise such movements as forces that are subject to laws of physics, chemistry, ‘energies’ 

Reduction-ism or separation of matter and energies into constituent parts of a whole in an attempt to relate ’cause and effect’, should never overlook the complexities and multi-layered out-workings which clearly necessitate  ”directed” logic – the prerequisite for ‘any’ obviously inherent design of form, function, or intertwined purpose, especially the superfine connectivity inscribed at every level throughout nature or life. Design ‘is’ therefore apparent and ‘obviously’ evident to an  ‘unbiased observer’.

Consciousness is not dissect-able in a lab, it is disseminated, broadcasted, it promulgates, and is not made subjective to the physical aspect.

Are, seemingly random destructive events or acts such as have befallen this planet, indeed random oversights?, as in materials left over from some building project, simple catastrophic accidents waiting to happen?, or, were the warnings resonant from many ancient cultures rooted in actual truth –  for either life was just some twist of chance, or life was and therefore is calculated, measured, moment by moment, as indeed the balance of life truly is,  an interplay of delicate and orchestrated rhythms, inclusive of light, sound, wave-forms, a plethora of choreographed energies – 

If then, the intricate movements of  life are by design would such a genius of design conduct such accomplishments alongside unpredictable, catastrophic vagaries, of blind chance?

I suspect not.  – Maccy

The graphic shows the vast swathe of our planet that geologists call the Younger Dryas Boundary Field. Across this huge “fingerprint” spanning North America, Central America, parts of South America, most of Europe and parts of the Middle East as well, the tell-tale traces of multiple impacts by the fragments of a giant comet have been found. Some of these fragments, were TWO KILOMETRES or more in diameter and they hit the earth like a blast from a cosmic scatter-gun around 12,800 years ago. – Read in full; https://grahamhancock.com/ancient-cataclysm-hancock/

July 10, 2017 – Is the present cascading abuse of this created planet’s ecosystem one such facet in point, parts of a prelude that prefigured extinction events historically? – Maccy

Out of Interest – Prelude to global extinction: Human impact on Earth’s animals –

Biologists say disappearance of species tells only part of the story of human impact on Earth’s animals –

“Sadly, our descendants will also have to do without the aesthetic pleasures and sources of imagination provided by our only known living counterparts in the universe,” said Ehrlich.

In the first such global evaluation, biologists found more than 30 percent of all vertebrates have declining populations. They call for curbs on the basic drivers of these losses.

Two vertebrate species go extinct every year on average, but few people notice, perhaps because the rate seems relatively slow — not a clear and present threat to the natural systems we depend on. This view overlooks trends of extreme decline in animal populations, which tell a more dire story with cascading consequences, according to a new study that provides the first global evaluation of these population trends.

“This is the case of a biological annihilation occurring globally, even if the species these populations belong to are still present somewhere on Earth,” said co-author Rodolfo Dirzo, a professor of biology.

A 2015 study co-authored by Paul Ehrlich, professor emeritus of biology, and colleagues showed that Earth has entered an era of mass extinction unparalleled since the dinosaurs died out 66 million years ago. The specter of extinction hangs over about 41 percent of all amphibian species and 26 percent of all mammals, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), which maintains a list of threatened and extinct species. This global disaster scene has the fingerprints of habitat loss, overexploitation, invasive organisms, pollution, toxification and climate change.

The new analysis, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, looks beyond species extinctions to provide a clear picture of dwindling populations and ranges. The researchers mapped the ranges of 27,600 species of birds, amphibians, mammals and reptiles — a sample representing nearly half of known terrestrial vertebrate species — and analyzed population losses in a sample of 177 well-studied mammal species between 1990 and 2015.

Using range reduction as a proxy for population loss, the study finds more than 30 percent of vertebrate species are declining in population size and range. Of the 177 mammals for which the researchers had detailed data, all have lost 30 percent or more of their geographic ranges and more than 40 percent have lost more than 80 percent of their ranges. Tropical regions have had the greatest number of decreasing species while temperate regions have seen similar or higher proportions of decreasing species. Particularly hard hit have been the mammals of south and southeast Asia, where all the large-bodied species of mammals analyzed have lost more than 80 percent of their geographic ranges.

The study’s maps suggest that as much as 50 percent of the number of animal individuals that once shared Earth have disappeared, as have billions of animal populations. This amounts to “a massive erosion of the greatest biological diversity in the history of Earth,” the authors write.

“The massive loss of populations and species reflects our lack of empathy to all the wild species that have been our companions since our origins,” said the new study’s lead author, Gerardo Ceballos of the National Autonomous University of Mexico. “It is a prelude to the disappearance of many more species and the decline of natural systems that make civilization possible.”

Cascading effects

Why does the loss of populations and biological diversity matter? Aside from being what the scientists call a prelude to species extinction, the losses rob us of crucial ecosystem services such as honeybees’ crop pollination, pest control and wetlands’ water purification. We also lose intricate ecological networks involving animals, plants and microorganisms — leading to less resilient ecosystems and pools of genetic information that may prove vital to species’ survival in a rapidly changing global environment.

“Sadly, our descendants will also have to do without the aesthetic pleasures and sources of imagination provided by our only known living counterparts in the universe,” said Ehrlich.

In the meantime, the overall scope of population losses makes clear the world cannot wait to address biodiversity damage, according to the authors. They call for curbs on the basic drivers of extinction — human overpopulation and overconsumption — and challenge society to move away from “the fiction that perpetual growth can occur on a finite planet.”

Piri Re’is Map

The Piri Re’is Map is only one of several anomalous maps drawn in the 15th Century and earlier which appear to represent better information about the shape of the continents than should have been known at the time. Furthermore, this information appears to have been obtained at some distant time in the past.

Piri Re’is, Ptolomy (2nd Century A.D.), as well as Mercator and Oronteus Finaeus, well-known 15th Century map-makers, included the traditional southern continent in their world maps, as did others.

Antarctica was not discovered until the 19th Century, and it was largely unexplored until the middle of the 20th. This is just the start. Anomalous maps also show the Behring Strait as linking Asia and America, river deltas which appear much shorter than they do today, islands in the Aegean which haven’t been above water since the sea-level rise at the end of the ice-age and huge glaciers covering Britian and Scandinavia.

Long dismissed as attempts by cartographers to fill in empty spaces, some of the details of the old maps look very startling when correlated with modern (very mainstream) knowledge of the changes in the Earths’ geography in the geologic past, particularly during the Ice Ages

More evidence has appeared in recent years.. The Piri Re’is map is one of the cornerstones of the growing body of evidence for an unknown Ice Age civilization. Along with this we can include the book Hamlet’s Mill, by De Santillana and von Dechend (1969)

http://www.sacred-texts.com/piri/

In 1929, a section of a world map drawn by the Turkish Admiral Reis (Piri-reis), was found in the basement of a museum in Constantinople. The map was of immediate interest as it appeared to show the coastlines of South America and Africa at their correct relative longitudes and latitudes, and the legend on the map dated it to ‘Muharran‘ in the Moslem year 919 (1513 AD), only 20 years after the official discovery of the Americas by Columbus in 1492. The legend on the map itself however, gave it an origin far older than 20 years,  revealing that it was a section of a world map composed from more than twenty source maps, some drawn in the time of Alexander the great, and that ‘some were based on mathematics’ (4). The fact that there was no known means of accurately calculating longitude in 1513 AD led Prof. Charles Hapgood to examine the map further.

Hapgood’s research led him to make several fundamental conclusions; Firstly, he confirmed that the coastlines of the continents had been accurately plotted with regards to both latitude and longitude. Secondly, he determined that the co-ordinates had been mathematically converted from natures spherical model to fit the two dimensional representation of a map, (a method similar in principle to Mercator’s projection). Thirdly, he showed that a connection existed between this map and several other ancient portolano’s and mappa-mundi, some of which included the outline of the Antarctic continent. These facts led Hapgood to suggest the existence of a set of knowledge from a time before the Greeks, and placed a question mark over the origin of sciences such as geometry, geography and cartography, traditionally accredited to the Greeks.

The calculation of latitude is a relatively easy procedure requiring only a single observation of the height of the sun from the horizon, the length of a shadow or the height of the pole star in the sky, whereas the calculation of longitude is a more complicated figure to deduce.

We therefore have several suggestions that this map at least, includes a set of knowledge that predates the European renaissance of the sciences which followed the intellectual vacuum of the ‘Dark-ages’ under the shadow of the ‘Holy church of Rome’ (a time when science was rejected as witchcraft and the world was believed flat) The recognition of the Antarctic continent on certain ancient world-maps may well turn out to be Hapgood’s most significant discovery as, apart from the fact that there is no record of anyone ever having charted the continent, it is a feat said by geologists to have been last physically possible only through a window of opportunity between 10,000 BC and 4,000 BC

The specific division of the Antarctic continent into two smaller land-masses on these ancient maps is similarly a mystery as it was only at the end of the 20th century that we were finally able to determine (through satellite technology) the accurate outline of the Antarctic continent, which was found to be identical to those seen on some of the oldest surviving maps of the world

However unlikely it seems therefore, or until new evidence emerges, we are forced to accept that any world map including an accurate representation of the Antarctic coastline would have had to have been charted before the last time it froze over, and therefore from a source as yet unknown, and with the radio-carbon evidence from the Ross-sea core-samples showing that the continent has been covered by ice since around 4,000 BC, it is closer to this period in time that we are forced to look.

5180

The connection between the Piri-reis map and Constantinople led him to speculate on the possibility that the map may have had its roots in the store-house of knowledge, libraries etc that existed there until the 12th century when the city was sacked by the Christian crusaders, and following which a series of maps with an identical geometric fingerprint, began to appear in Europe and the Middle-east. The presence of the same fingerprint in certain Greek maps and the information in the legend of the Piri-reis map that it included sections composed in ‘the time of Alexander’, led him to suggest that these originals must in turn have originated from the renowned Library of Alexander

The legend on the Piri-reis map states that several maps from the ‘days of Alexander’ (356–323 BC), were used to compose the map, and although Ptolemy lived around 200 years after Alexander, it is well known that he, for example, relied greatly on the authority of earlier sources for his maps

the presence of the Antarctic continent on any map before the 16th century has yet to be explained, as does the high level of mathematics and geometry involved in such an undertaking.

These may well symbolize cosmological pointers, temple markers as per the interesting mathematical work of Carl Munck  ”concerning” worldwide megalithic sites. His later theories aside, the mathematical body of work is simply impressive.

It may well be that our origins are indeed written in the stars, our state of ‘amnesia’ in regard of our true ‘state of being’ was perhaps taken into account encoded and ”recorded” worldwide, for those ‘searching’ to unravel at a later period-

In any case I would suggest the ”quantum nature” of consciousness, or aspect of  ‘freewill existence’ is a wake up call to , and, as science is indeed verifying. see microtubules

Were these so called ‘Sages’ shamanic in their abilities?  were the various male images depicting the melding of birds or/fish garb etc a conscious expression, visual statement’s of the representations of consciousness mirrored through many physical forms in nature, is this relevant to the inherent intelligence’s  endowed throughout life, this encompassing wisdom bound up instinctively with all living creatures including plant life ..

were these suchlike figures then intermediaries? able to traverse the bridge from physical to spiritual to access instructional guidance ”divinity” or direction necessary to recover from illness, or catastrophe’s – including cosmological if acted upon?  If so what was contained within these bucket/bag objects, and what was the item held in the other hand depicted in these images?

Graham Hancock goes to some lengths in discussion of these images found in many places worldwide, and much more besides, in his book ‘Magicians of the  gods’.

The main theme of his book is of course regarding a comet’s strike that initiated a worldwide cataclysmic event approx 12,800 years ago, his research and findings is in my humble opinion a well crafted thesis, a most noteworthy and necessary read!

I feel it is important to add that the constellation/myth message is always appropriate, as these images/accounts may hold far deeper meaning for mankind regarding our true state of being or duality, such consideration should not be carelessly bypassed or overlooked whilst caught up in the foray and excitement of following a purely physical trail of our origins alone, it is I feel of utmost importance to weigh both sides of our ‘duality’ of being.   

The implications of our duality in nature I believe will stagger any physical mind  – Maccy

Quote; Looked at geometrically, the handbags combine the figure of a hemisphere on their upper side with that of a square on their lower side, and so conjure ancient cosmological themes of above and below and of squaring a circle.

In ancient cultures from Africa to India to China, the figure of a circle was associated symbolically with concepts of spirituality or non-materiality, while that of a square was often associated with concepts of the Earth and of materiality. Consequently, various approaches to squaring a circle came to symbolize the act of reconciling the non-material and material aspects of creation

Each of these perspectives on the symbolism of these baskets shapes as they were understood in ancient times lends credence to the notion that a basket represented a cosmological symbol, one that likely also reflected the importance of actual woven baskets in the life of an everyday person. Looked at from our modern perspective it may be hard to remember that a basket was, in its own way, as impactful a technological development as a thumb-drive has been to modern society. As such, it became a powerful icon for meanings that relate to cosmology and knowledge

Both the shape and temple/shrine symbolism of the handbag images is also reflected in later cultures such as ancient Egypt. In his book Ancient Egypt: Anatomy of a Civilization, Barry Kemp of the University of Cambridge in England discusses the attributes of a type of pre-dynastic portable shrine called a seh that, in his view, became the prototype for temple architecture and symbolism in dynastic Egypt. [see Kemp, pp 92-93] He characterizes the seh as an early “tent” shrine, built from poles and cloth or animal skins. The lower part of the shrine was squared, much like a modern dining room cabinet, while the poles of the upper part were bent into the shape of a domed arch, creating a covered shelf. The overall shape is a match for the Gobekli Tepe figures, and presents a good physical and conceptual correlate to the handbag symbols. In his Egyptian Hieroglyphic Dictionary, Sir E.A. Wallace Budge defines a phonetically-similar word sa as “a shrine or sanctuary in which a god or goddess was housed.” [see Budge, p. 633b]

Extract;   Might it not be said wonderingly of us, as it was of the ”Forefathers” recalled in the Popol Vuh, the sacred book of the ancient Quiche Maya –

They were endowed with intelligence; they saw and instantly they could see far, they succeeded in seeing, they succeeded in knowing all that there is in the world. When they looked, instantly they saw all around them, and they contemplated in turn the arch of heaven and the round face of the earth. The things hidden in the distance they saw all without first having to move, at once they saw the world, and so, too, from where thy were, they saw it. Great was their wisdom; their sight reached to the forests, the lakes, the seas, the mountains and the valleys – Popol Vuh – Quiche Maya

Out of interest;

Extract:

The main hallucinogen used by the Yanomamo is ebene, a fine powder snuff that is blown forcibly into another man’s nostrils and sinus cavity. The altered state that is brought on by the snuff is used in calling the hekura into their bodies or using hekura that have already been called to perform acts of healing or other tasks. The Tucano use yagé also called ayahuasca as a hallucinogen, but also tobacco, which I have made the argument, can also be seen as a hallucinogen. Both yagé and tobacco are used to contact spirits outside of themselves. This emphasizes the internal/external theory as well.

Another aspect of hallucinogen and narcotic use is recreation and frequency of use. Ebene and tobacco fill similar niches in this respect. Each culture seems to have two roles of hallucinogenic and narcotic use. The first is a major hallucinogen used for spiritual purposes. The second role is a frequently used narcotic/hallucinogen for recreation or for spiritual purposes (or both). For the Yanomamo, ebene serves as both roles, a spiritual tool and recreational frequently used narcotic. For the Tucano, ayahuasca is their main hallucinogen used in spiritual matters. Ayahuasca can not be used on an everyday basis, because it creates an overwhelming body purge of vomiting and diarrhea. Therefore, their use of concentrated tobacco fills a similar role as ebene. It is used both recreationally and as a frequently used hallucinogen/narcotic.

The last aspect I discussed as a supporting theory, is the jaguar complex. The two very different views of the jaguar among the Yanomamo and the Tucano have an interesting possible effect upon their views of tobacco. There is supporting evidence that higher levels of tobacco intoxication create physiological and psychological effects very similar to animalistic behavior and perception, particularly feline. The fact that the shaman in the Tucano culture is closely tied to the jaguar, and even is believed to be able to transform into a jaguar, supports the idea that tobacco would be used in this manner. For the Yanomamo, the jaguar represents something to conquer and outwit. They have a firm distinction between culture and nature, and to a point separate themselves from nature. This is particularly evident in how they view the jaguar. Although there is admiration, the desire to keep jaguars and people separate in location, body, and spirit, is evident. The fact that high levels of tobacco intoxication leads to an altered state much like an animal, would deter the Yanomamo from using tobacco as a spiritual tool.

Consideration;

Ayahuasca is an Amazonian plant medicine that has been used for centuries, possibly thousands of years, by indigenous and more recently mestizo shamans across the upper Amazon throughout Peru, Colombia, Ecuador and Brazil. There are over 40 other names known for this sacred medicine, including caapi, natema, mihi and yage.

The origins of the shamanic use of ayahuasca are lost in the mists of history but there are many different stories among indigenous tribes of the Amazon about the how they initially came to work with this medicine. In an indigenous context, ayahuasca was used by the shamans of the Amazon region for healing and divinatory purposes. Complex rituals surround the preparation and use of ayahuasca that have been passed down through generations of healers. By holding healing ceremonies, they use the medicine as a diagnostic tool to discover the roots of illnesses in their patients.

Unlike all other sacred plant medicines, ayahuasca is made from two plants – the ayahuasca vine (Banisteriopsis caapi) and the leaf of the chacruna plant (Psychotria viridis). Both plants are collected from the jungle to create a potent mixture that offers access to the realm of spirits and an energetic world that that we are typically unable to perceive in our ordinary state of consciousness.

Ayahuasca is used by the healers for other purposes, too: to help inform important decisions; ask the spirits for advice; solve personal conflicts (between families and communities); exercise one’s divine capacities; elucidate mysteries, thefts and disappearances; discover if we have enemies; and to see if a spouse is being disloyal.

One of the greatest challenges of the movement of ayahuasca culture to the West is how to transfer a tradition rooted in shamanic communities to a culture by and large alienated from nature with integrity, respect and safety. We feel it is critically important to understand and honor traditional practices that indigenous healers have developed over thousands of years of working with ayahuasca

Stuart Hameroff and Jonathan Powell: The Conscious Connection

db759f6cf43d8a5b69f3aad7a2cc8d76

We propose that a pathway to understanding consciousness might be found in identifying both sides of the bridge, and the nature of the connection, i.e. the bridge itself.  We attempt to describe the psycho-physical bridge using the Penrose-Hameroff Orch OR theory of consciousness. The underlying psycho/experiential/mental side that embeds proto-conscious experience is described in the physics of quantum geometry at the Planck scale, the most fundamental level of the universe. The physical/material side resides in the brain—specifically, in quantum electron dipole states mediating computations in microtubules and other biomolecular structures involved in consciousness. The connection between the two sides—the psycho-physical bridge—is a specific process called Penrose objective reduction (OR), a proposed threshold for quantum state reduction inherent in Planck scale quantum geometry.  Pan-protopsychism thus becomes the most accurate picture of our universe.

Orch OR describes how well-understood neuronal-level functions (e.g. axonal firings, synaptic transmissions, dendritic synchrony) ‘orchestrate’ quantum computations in microtubules within brain neuronal interiors. The quantum computations reduce to classical solutions by Penrose OR, connecting brain functions to Planck scale quantum geometry which may embed proto-conscious experiential qualities. Orch OR events are correlated with gamma synchrony EEG occurring roughly 40 times per second; conceptually, these may be seen as equivalent to Whitehead’s “occasions of experience.

The amount of potential information in Planck scale spin networks is vast; each Planck scale volume, or ‘pixel of reality,’ may be shaped by a huge variety of combinations of ‘edge’ lengths, number of spins per edge, and nonlocal interactions. In addition to the enormous potential variety in each Planck scale pixel, their sheer number compared to our macroscopic scale is enormous—there are roughly 10107 Planck volumes or pixels in the volume of a human brain, far greater than the number of particles in the universe.

The conscious agent is Orch OR.  It operates in microtubules within gamma-synchronized dendrites, generating e.g. 40 conscious moments per second. Each conscious moment, each occasion of experience, is, according to Penrose OR, an event or transition in spacetime geometry. Consciousness is a sequence of transitions, of ripples in fundamental spacetime geometry, connected to the brain through Orch OR.

Is consciousness indeed quantized, composed of discrete events? Trained Buddhist meditators describe distinct ‘flickerings’ in their experience of reality. Buddhist texts portray consciousness as “momentary collections of mental phenomena,” and as “distinct, unconnected and impermanent moments which perish as soon as they arise.”

Mouse Hippocampus

16299532_1431853756857180_3426546786009236649_n

Our normal conscious experience seems continuous, but so does a motion picture—even though we know it to be composed of discrete frames.  There is no doubt that we perceive motion pictures as continuous despite their actual ‘quantum’ structure.  Perhaps consciousness is the same.

Acharya S/D.M. Murdock

It is a grave question whether the ecclesiastical system and movement known as Christianity has any right to its name. Far from being the cult that brought in a true Christ-worship for the first time in ‘heathen darkness’ it was indeed – after the third century – the one system that destroyed such a true worship. Ancient cults bent all effort upon the cultivation within man. This is the nucleus of the only true Christianity. – Alvin Boyd Kuhn. ”Who is this King of Glory”

The mind media of religious belief systems is incredibly diverse’, as is the use of religion to augment political power, for once covertly supplanted, idealism represents the very pinnacle of the political science of mass mind control, toward the garnering of power.

Interestingly, if one examines closely, much of religious dogmas are but ‘splintered variations of an ancient theme’, for a once universal consciousness of knowledge placed our source of  life and physical being in divinity, the ‘spark of life’  this ‘original’ knowledge was likely customarily passed down in the oral tradition as an inheritance, from adult to child.

This ancient theme of beginnings’ or ‘records’ were possibly at some point ‘envisioned’ and recorded via star myths, essentially ‘future-proofed’, that the importance of this spiritual legacy and the knowledge of the ”temporary” and temporal state of physical being, might not be ‘lost’ to the so called human intellect or powers of reason in a ”climate of amnesia”, but retained, and remembered.

This epoch of ancient wisdom, I believe, once encircled this globe’s consciousness and united ‘all peoples’ with an integrity based in hope and purposeful existence, an awareness of spirit in harmony with the knowledge that the physical – material is of a transitory means, this temporary biological life is the ‘outward’ expression of wisdom displayed throughout all nature’s inner workings,, as such all is guided, spun and woven by ‘intelligence’.

The ”interconnected” tapestry of a once culturally rich global civilization is still evident in sites and places today, both to the dry continents above, and cities submerged below the waters, on ocean seafloors spread worldwide. Before such cataclysm’s this wisdom and knowledge was described as golden age’s of exuberance and celebration, era’s that declared universal understanding of true purpose.

The works of Acharya S do not necessarily deal with the details of myth/metaphor connections here, but rather lays focus on the essential reveal of the stunning magnitude of deceitful manipulation’s, omission’s and  interpolations of scriptures designed to mislead, refinements made over many centuries, geared toward control of the consciousness of the masses.

From the original ‘world mythos’ or metaphors was contrived a ‘patent of type’ thus revised as literal characters and historical narratives ‘woven’ into the so called ‘Jesus greatest story ever sold/told. Ultimately the ensuing ‘rampage’ on intellectual freedom imposed a tyrannical authority over the conscious domain of mind, this indoctrination necessitated the obliteration of  records and ‘literature’ including art, and architecture, much was defaced or torn down, all that was deemed pertaining to the original paradigm.

Along with conspired acts of barbarism that included whole cultures wiped out by ‘ethnic cleansing’ – execution. The mandate was eradication of the old ways and beliefs, refusal to comply was met with torture and unfettered acts of violence, inquisitors were horrifically cruel, and thorough, a reputation which also psychologically served the purpose of instilling a consciousness of terror among the masses.

Essentially such ‘crusades’ and missions of mental slavery to capture alive ”hearts and minds” must include ”all” and ”any” past or present ‘Machiavellian Campaigns’ that seek conquest in the mental domain of any individual or group consciousness.

For what is the mental ‘domain’ if not the intellectual property of an individual? an individual consciousness is as ‘unique’ as the DNA code we each possess, this code ‘defines’ an individual as ‘unique’, further, DNA extends beyond basic physical functions of upkeep and repair,.

On display throughout ‘all’ created works are clear ‘hallmarks that exhibit’ a ‘source intelligence’ that has the ability to ‘envision’ and design according to an adapting environment, it is this gift to foresee or ‘adapt’ with creative purpose that dignifies every ”individual” thus nurturing the human capacity for intellectual advancement, to form decision making skills, and accrue experiences and wisdom through choice. To create, design and envision are cosmic blueprints of freewill ‘and’ creative freedom, the right to free-thought, is the individual’s intellectual property.

To conscientiously ‘choose’ has however been denied the human race for millennia and substituted with anarchic warmongering, and endless divisions under the oligarchic guise of  ‘suing for peace’ suchlike seeds of  poison and propaganda thrive under cover of violent physical war, either way it is a war on consciousness that is covertly prioritized, ‘mind control’  indeed,  it continues, as history will show. 

That is to say ‘true history’ which has little to do with the historical narrative taught on the face of this planet, the prevalence of  lies and diversion in defense of mainstream historicity presently serves only as a mocking reminder that underlines the despicable failure of man, to ”guide even his own steps”   –  let alone those of his neighbors  – Maccy

Shocking as it may seem to the general populace, the most enduring and profound controversy in the subject of Christianity is whether or not a person named Jesus Christ ever really existed!

“Jesus is a mythical figure in the tradition of pagan mythology and almost nothing in all of ancient literature would lead one to believe otherwise. Anyone wanting to believe Jesus lived and walked as a real live human being must do so despite the evidence, not because of it.”
–C. Dennis McKinsey, The Encyclopedia of Biblical Errancy

“There is not a conception associated with Christ that is not common to some or all of the Savior cults of antiquity.”
–JM Robertson, Pagan Christs\

“The gospel story is an artificial, non-historical work. It has been fabricated from source materials that can be identified and traced to their incorporation into the gospels. There is not a particle of hard evidence that ‘Jesus of Nazareth’ ever existed.
–Harold Leidner, The Fabrication of the Christ Myth

Contrary to popular belief, there was no single man at the genesis of Christianity but many characters rolled into one, the majority of whom were personifications of the ubiquitous solar myth, whose exploits were well known, as reflected by such popular deities as Mithra, Heracles/Hercules, Dionysus and many others throughout the Roman Empire and beyond.

The story of Jesus as portrayed in the Gospels is revealed to be nearly identical in certain details to that of the earlier savior-gods Krishna and Horus, et al., who for millennia preceding Christianity held great favor with the people in much the same way as Jesus does today.

The cross of the Zodiac, one of the oldest conceptual images in human history. It reflects the sun as it figuratively passes through the 12 major constellations over the course of a year. It also reflects the 12 months of the year, the four seasons, and the solstices and equinoxes. The term Zodiac relates to the fact that constellations were anthropomorphized, or personified, as figures, or animals.”

The antiquity of the idea of a zodiac is disputed, but it may have been formulated as early as 4,000 or more years ago.

As D.M. Murdock says in Christ in Egypt:

The Horus Jesus Connection:…”the zodiac certainly existed in Mesopotamia millennia ago, worked over by the famed Chaldean astronomers, with the Greeks further polishing it. In this regard, several sources—such as royal astronomer Dr. Edward Walter Maunder…, the devout Christian
author of
The Astronomy of the Bible—have indicated an origin of the zodiac, including the popular signs, to some 4,000 or more years ago. We also possess the relatively recent find of the ―Karanovo Zodiac‖ from Bulgaria, which has been dated to around 6,000 years ago and which seems to bear rudimentary renditions of the constellations
found in the Western zodiac.

The zodiac as it appears to us today was refined by the Greeks several centuries prior to the common era –

In other words, the early civilizations did not just follow the sun and stars, they personified them with elaborate myths involving their movements and relationships.

The meanings of many myths can be traced to a number of origins, the most prominent of which is nature worship and astrotheology, whereby the gods and goddesses are essentially personifications of earthly forces and celestial bodies. As concerns the anthropomorphization of
the celestial bodies, in
Suns of God: Krishna, Buddha and Christ Unveiled, Murdock relates:

Ancient peoples abundantly acknowledged that their religions, dating back centuries and millennia before the common era, were largely based on astrotheology, with their gods representing the sun, moon, stars and planets. One of their focuses was the sun…and the story of the sun became highly developed over a period of thousands of
years, possibly tens of thousands or more. The observations of the sun and its daily,monthly, annual and precessional movements have led to complex myths in which it was personified as a god…
13
We can see this astrotheological and nature-worshipping religion in the writings of ancient historians such as Herodotus, Berossus and Diodorus, as well as in the Bible, both overtly and covertly, and in Jewish apocryphal texts.14 The writings of the Church fathers also discussed
the Pagan astrotheology, sometimes fairly extensively

The sun, with its life-giving and saving qualities was personified as a
representative of the unseen creator or god—“God’s Sun”
We have already seen that the ancient cultures have considered the sun as divine; hence, it is either God, a god, or a son of God/a god. Indeed, this ―sun of God as son of God‖ motif is common in the mythology of India, Greece, Rome and Egypt, to name a few of the more well known nations. In Egypt, this ―son of the sun‖ is the god Horus, among others, while in Greece it is Apollo, son of Zeus, whose name means ―God.‖

…the light of the world, the savior of human kind. Likewise, the 12
constellations represented places of travel for God’s Sun and were identified by names, usually representing elements of nature that happened during that period of time. For example, Aquarius, the water bearer, who brings the Spring rains.

The notions of the sun as the ―savior‖ and the ―light of the world‖ are understandably common in ancient religious history:

Horus is the Sun God of Egypt of around 3000 BC.
Concerning the antiquity of Horus, Egyptologist Dr. Edmund S. Meltzer remarks: Horus is one of the earliest attested of the major ancient Egyptian deities, becoming known to us at least as early as the late Predynastic period (Naqada III/Dynasty 0) [c.3200-3000 BCE]; he was still prominent in the latest temples of the Greco-Roman period
[332
BCE-640 AD/CE], especially at Philae and Edfu, as well as in the Old Coptic and Greco-Egyptian ritual power, or magical, texts.31
As is the case with many gods in other parts of the world, several Egyptian gods (and goddesses) possess solar attributes, essentially making them sun gods. These Egyptian sun gods included not only the commonly known Ra or Re, but also Osiris and Horus, among
others. In the first century
BCE, the Greek writer Diodorus Siculus described Osiris as the sun, while his sister-wife, Isis, is the moon:
Now when the ancient Egyptians, awestruck and wondering, turned their eyes to the heavens, they concluded
that two gods, the sun and the moon, were primeval and eternal: they called the former Osiris, the latter Isis….

Concerning the nature of certain Egyptian gods, Dr. James P. Allen, Curator of Egyptian Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, remarks: …Ruling over the universe by day, the Sun was identified with Horus, the god of kingship; at sunset he was seen as Atum, the oldest of all gods. movement through the sky was viewed as a journey from birth to death, and his rebirth at dawn was made possible through Osiris, the force of new life……In the middle of the night the Sun merged with Osiris‘s body; through this union, the Sun received the power of new life while Osiris was reborn in the Sun.

From the ancient hieroglyphics in Egypt, we know much about this solar
messiah. For instance, Horus, being the sun, or the light, had an enemy
known as Set, and Set was the personification of the darkness or night. And, metaphorically speaking, every morning Horus would win the battle against Set—while in the evening, Set would conquer Horus and send him into the underworld. It is important to note that “dark vs. light” or “good vs. evil” is one of the most ubiquitous mythological dualities ever known and is still expressed on many levels to this day.

Broadly speaking, the story of Horus is as follows. Horus was born on
December 25
th….

It needs to be understood that the Egyptian stories were never ―laid out‖ in a linear form; rather, they appear in bits and pieces in primary sources such as the Pyramid Texts, Coffin Texts and Book of the Dead, compiled and altered over many centuries, beginning as early as
7,000 years ago. Thus, it is a
common misconception that the myths unfold in the same linear manner as in the Christian narrative. Most of these motifs are indeed not linear narratives, but, rather, symbolic associations derived from different Egyptian texts, as well as later
mythographers‘ accounts. Since this description of Horus here is obviously angled from the reference point of the Christian narrative, the subject needs to be deconstructed and reconsidered from the standpoint of each motif, rather than the overall narrative. The Christian
story must, in turn, likewise be considered from the standpoint of each individual motif and not linearly, because this basic ―mythicist
argument is that the Christian religion is a compilation of religious motifs which existed previously—and separately. Obviously, the English term ―December 25th‖ did not exist in the ancient Egyptian calendar butsimply refers to the winter solstice, which the ancients perceived as beginning on December 21st and ending at midnight on the 24th. We learn from one of the most famous historians of the first century, Plutarch (46-120 AD/CE), that Horus the Child—or ―Harpocrates,‖ as was his Greek name—was ―born about the winter solstice, unfinished and infant-like..

Three centuries after Plutarch, ancient Latin writer Macrobius (395–423 AD/CE) also reported on an annual Egyptian ―Christmas‖ celebration (Saturnalia, I, XVIII:10): …at the winter solstice the sun would seem to be a little child, like that which the Egyptians bring forth from a shrine on an appointed day, since the day is then at itsshortest and the god is accordingly shown as a tiny infant.

As Egyptologist Dr. Bojana Mojsov remarks: ―The symbol of the savior-child was the eye of the
sun newly born every year at the winter solstice.

Concerning the relationship of the Egyptian religion to Christianity,
Budge summarizes:

..at the last, when [Osiris‘s] cult disappeared before the religion of the
Man Christ, the Egyptians who embraced Christianity found that the
moral system of the old cult and that of the new religion were so
similar, and the promises of resurrection and immortality in each so
much alike, that they transferred their allegiance from Osiris to
Jesus of Nazareth without difficulty. Moreover, Isis and the child
Horus were straightway identified with Mary the Virgin and her Son,
and in the apocryphal literature of the first few centuries which
followed the evangelization of Egypt, several of the legends about Isis
and her sorrowful wanderings were made to centre round the Mother
of Christ. Certain of the attributes of the sister goddesses of Isis were
also ascribed to her, and, like the goddess Neith of Sais, she was
declared to possess perpetual virginity. Certain of the Egyptian
Christian Fathers gave to the Virgin the title ―Theotokos,‖ or ―Mother
of God,‖ forgetting, apparently, that it was an exact translation of
neter mut, a very old and common title of Isis.

As Murdock shows in her books Suns of God and Christ in Egypt, the
mythical virgin-mother motif has been common, possesses an
astrotheological meaning, and was part of the ancient mysteries.

His birth was accompanied by a star in the east, and upon his birth he was adored by three kings.

The very idea that when a person is born a star appears, along with three magi or kings following it to meet the newborn savior, obviously and logically represents a metaphysical fantasy/mythological event.

Therefore, again, the symbolic relationships are of the greatest
interest to us, and here the important questions thus become: Were Jesus and Horus both associated with a birth star and three ―kings  or magi? Is there a relationship between the birth star and the three kings? The answer to these questions is a definitive
yes, based on
scholarship concerning the Horus/Osiris/Ra myths, which we need to recall are often interchangeable.

The theme of the newborn savior being signaled by a star and approached by three ―kings‖ or dignitaries has multiple mythological meanings, the prominent astrotheological one of which is
summarized by Barbara G. Walker:

Osiris‘s coming was announced by Three Wise Men: the three stars Mintaka, Anilam,
and Alnitak in the belt of Orion, which point directly to Osiris‘s star in the east, Sirius
(Sothis), significator of his birth.

 

The sign of the cross, represented in its simplest form by a crossing of two lines at right angles, greatly antedates, in both the East and the West, the introduction of Christianity. It goes back to a very remote period of human civilization…….It is also…a symbol of the sun…and seems to denote its daily rotation…. Cruciform objects have been found in Assyria. Shari people in Egypt wearing crucifixes around
their necks. The statutes of Kings Asurnazirpal and Sansirauman, now in the British Museum, have cruciform jewels about the neck…. Cruciform earrings were found by Father Delattre in Punic tombs at Carthage.
Another symbol which has been connected with the cross is the ansated cross (ankh or crux ansata) of the ancient Egyptians…. From the earliest times also it appears among the hieroglyphic signs symbolic of life or of the living… perhaps it was originally, like the swastika, an astronomical sign. The ansated cross is found on many and various monuments of Egypt…. In later times the Egyptian Christians (Copts), attracted by its
form, and perhaps by its symbolism, adopted it as the emblem of the cross…

Krishna, of India, born of the virgin Devaki with a “star in the east”
signaling his coming. He performed miracles with his disciples, and upon his death was resurrected.
The sun is a prominent deity in the religions of India as elsewhere, dating back centuries to millennia. Hindu literature from ancient times is full of reverence for the solar deity, the supreme light that inhabits the visible disk. In the Gāyatrī Mantra, a Vedic scripture, the sun
is revealed as the Supreme Godhead:

Let us adore the supremacy of that divine Sun, the Godhead, who illuminates all, who recreates all, from whom all proceed, to whom all must return: whom we invoke to direct our understanding aright in our progress toward his holy seat.
Demonstrating its importance—and that of the sun to Indian religion—this ―mantra of the sun‖ is claimed to be ―superior to all the mantras referred to in the Vedas.‖137 Indeed, the Gāyatrī is
―considered as the ‗Mother of the Vedas.

Now, of the many astrological-astronomical metaphors in the Bible, one of the most important has to do with the ages. Throughout the scriptures there are numerous references to the “Age.” In order to understand this, we need to be familiar with the phenomenon known as the precession of the equinoxes.

The ancient Egyptians along with cultures long before them recognized that approximately every 2,150 years the sunrise on the morning of the spring equinox would occur at a different sign of the Zodiac.

First of all, it should be understood that the figure of 2,150 years is not an exact date for the precession of the equinoxes, which is around 25,800 years long, rounded up to 26,000.

Secondly, although in the second century the Greek astronomer Hipparchus of Nicea became the first to formalize the precession in writing, around 130 BCE, this knowledge seems to date back several centuries to millennia before that time. As Murdock elaborates:

Another important factor in ancient astrotheology is the precession of the equinoxes, a phenomenon caused by the earth‘s off-axis tilt, whereby the sun at the vernal equinox (spring) is back-dropped by a different constellation every 2,150 or so years, a period called an ―age.‖ One cycle of the precession through the 12 signs of the zodiacal ages is
called a ―Great Year,‖ and is approximately 26,000 years long.

According to orthodox history, the precession was only ―discovered‖ in the second century BCE by the Greek astronomer Hipparchus; however, it is clear from ancient texts, traditions, artifacts and monuments that more ancient peoples knew about it and attempted to compensate for
it from age to age.

In Hamlet’s Mill, Santillana and Dechend demonstrate knowledge of the precession at much earlier times, stating: ―There is good reason to assume that he [Hipparchus] actually rediscovered this, that it had been known some thousand years previously, and that on it the Archaic Age based its long-range computation of time

Astronomer Dr. Krupp agrees:

Circumstantial evidence implies that the awareness of the shifting equinoxes may be of considerable antiquity, for we find, in Egypt at least, a succession of cults whose iconography and interest focus on duality, the bull, and the ram at appropriate periods for Gemini, Taurus, and Aries in the precessional cycle of the equinoxes.

This scenario is described further thus:

Each year the sun passes entirely around the zodiac and returns to the point from which it started—the vernal equinox—and each year it falls just a little short of making the complete circle of the heavens in the allotted period of time. As a result, it crosses the equator just a little behind the spot in the zodiacal sign where it crossed the previous year. Each sign of the zodiac consists of thirty degrees, and as the sun loses
about one degree every seventy two years, it regresses through one entire constellation (or sign) in approximately 2,160 years, and through the entire zodiac in about 25,920 years. (Authorities disagree concerning these figures.) This retrograde motion is called the precession of the equinoxes. This means that in the course of about 25,920 years,
which constitute one Great Solar or Platonic Year, each one of the twelve constellations occupies a position at the vernal equinox for nearly 2,160 years, then gives place to the previous sign.

Among the ancients the sun was always symbolized by the figure and nature of the constellation through which it passed at the vernal equinox. For nearly the past 2,000 years the sun has crossed the equator at the vernal equinox in the constellation of Pisces (the Two Fishes). For the 2,160 years before that it crossed through the constellation of Aries (the Ram). Prior to that the vernal equinox was in the sign of Taurus (the Bull). It is probable that the form of the bull and the bull‘s proclivities were assigned to this constellation because the bull was used by the ancients to plow the fields, and the season set aside for plowing and furrowing corresponded to the time at which the sun reached the segment of the heavens named Taurus.

Please see A.L. Berger‘s Obliquity and precession for the last 5 million years,277 and Nicholas Campion‘s The Great Year for more on the precession phenomenon.
This has to do with a slow angular wobble that the Earth maintains as it rotates on its axis. It is called a precession because the constellations go backwards, rather than through the normal yearly cycle. The amount of time that it takes for the precession to go through all 12 signs is roughly 25,765 years. This is also called the “Great Year,” and ”ancient societies were very aware” of this. They referred to each 2150 year period as an “age.”

In discussing this theme as it concerns Christianity, it is important to recall the highly astrological contents of the Bible, not only as metaphor but also as explicitly signified in the stories themselves. For example, Job 38:31-33 (NKJV) says: Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades, Or loose the belt of Orion? Can you bring out Mazzaroth in its season? Or can you guide the Great Bear with its cubs? Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you set their dominion over the earth?…

According to Strong‘s Concordance (H4216), the Hebrew word הזרמor ―Mazzaroth‖ means ―the 12 signs of the Zodiac and their 36 associated constellations. Furthermore, there are many references to an ―age in the Bible as well, such as the following examples (NASB):
―I am with you always, even to the end of the age. (Mt 28:20)
―…it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.‖ (Mt 12:32)
―…the harvest is the end of the age… (Mt 13:39)
―…what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?‖ (Mt 24:3)
―…in the age to come, eternal life. (Lk 18:30)
―Where is the debater of this age? (1 Cr 1:20)
―…he is wise in this age… (1 Cr 3:18)
―…upon whom the ends of the ages have come. (1 Cr 10:11)
―…not only in this age but also in the one to come. (Eph 1:21)
―…the powers of the age to come… (Hbr 6:5)
―…he has appeared once for all at the end of the age to put away sin by the sacrifice of
himself. (Hbr 9:26) (RSV)
The Greek word in question is
αἰών or ―aion‖/‖aeon,‖ which Strong‘s (G165) defines as:
1) for ever, an unbroken age, perpetuity of time, eternity
2) the worlds, universe
3) period of time, age

From 4300 B.C. to 2150 B.C., it was the Age of Taurus, the Bull. From
2150 B.C. to 1 A.D., it was the Age of Aries, the Ram, and from 1 A.D. to 2150 A.D. it is the Age of Pisces, the age we are still in to this day, and in and around 2150, we will enter the new age: the Age of Aquarius.

Now, the Bible reflects, broadly speaking, a symbolic movement through
three ages, while foreshadowing a fourth. In the Old Testament when Moses comes down Mount Sinai with the 10 Commandments, he is very upset to see his people worshipping a golden bull calf. In fact, he shattered the stone tablets and instructed his people to kill each other in order to purify themselves. Most biblical scholars would attribute this anger to the fact that the Israelites were worshipping a false idol, or something to that effect…

The reality is’—the golden bull is Taurus the Bull, and Moses represents the new Age of Aries the Ram. This is why Jews even today still blow the Ram’s horn. (Jos 6:4) Moses represents the new Age of Aries, and upon the new age, everyone must shed the old age. Other deities mark these transitions as well, such as Mithra, a pre-Christian god who kills the bull, in the same symbology.

The stories of the golden bull calf (Exd 32:34) and the instruction to his people to kill each other in order to purify themselves (Exd 32:27) are found in the biblical Book of Exodus. With regard to the Bull/Calf symbolism as it relates to the Age of Taurus, along with the transition
into the Age of Aries, the Ram, Carpenter explains:

…the Precession of the Equinoxes caused the Sun, at its moment of triumph over the powers of darkness, to stand at one period in the constellation of the Bull, and at a period some two thousand years later in the constellation of the Ram. It was perfectly natural therefore that a change in the sacred symbols should, in the course of time, take place; yet perfectly natural also that these symbols, having once been consecrated and adopted, should continue to be honored and clung to long after the time of their astronomical appropriateness had passed, and so to be found side by side in later centuries….

Now Jesus is the figure who ushers in the age following Aries, the Age of
Pisces or the Two Fish. Fish symbolism is very abundant in the New
Testament. Jesus feeds 5,000 people with bread and “two fish.” When he begins his ministry walking along Galilee, he befriends two fisherman, who follow him.
The motifs of Jesus miraculously feeding the crowd with two fish (Mt 14:17; Jn 6:9) and the two fishermen (Mt 4:19) can be found in the New Testament. The gospel of John is loaded with
fishy imagery, including Jesus essentially establishing the fish as the symbol of the Christian age, when he emphasizes it in the last chapter, after his Resurrection:

Jesus said to them, “Children, have you any fish?” They answered him, “No.” (Jn 21:5)

The Greek word for fish is ΙΧΘΥΣ, which has been held since ancient times as a symbol of Jesus Christ, thus further reinforcing the apparent astrological symbolism of Christianity, since we have been astrologically in the Age of Pisces during the ―Christian era.‖ The fish symbol is therefore found all over the place in Christian tradition: As another example, early Christians were called ―Pisciculi‖ or ―little fishes.

As the Catholic Encyclopedia states: ―Among the symbols employed by the primitive Christians, that of the fish ranks probably first in importance.‖285 In this regard, French historian and archaeologist Dr. Adolphe Napoléon Didron says:

The fish, in the opinion of antiquarians in general, is the symbol of Jesus Christ… A fish is sculptured upon a number of Christian monuments, and more particularly upon the ancient sarcophagi… It is seen also upon medals bearing the name of our Saviour, and upon engraved stones, cameos and intaglios, The fish is also to be remarked upon
the amulets worn, suspended from the neck by children, and upon ancient glasses and sepulchral lamps….

…Tertullian adds, ―We are little fishes in Christ our great fish.

I think we’ve all seen the Jesus-fish on the backs of people’s cars.
Little do they know what it actually means. It is a Pagan astrological
symbolism for the Sun’s Kingdom during the Age of Pisces. Also, Jesus’
assumed birth date is essentially the start of this age.
Concerning Jesus‘s connection to the astrological Age of Pisces, Carpenter comments:

Finally it has been pointed out…that in the quite early years of Christianity the Fish came in as an accepted symbol of Jesus Christ. Considering that after the domination of Taurus and Aries, the Fish (Pisces) comes next in succession as the Zodiacal sign for
the Vernal Equinox, and is now the constellation in which the Sun stands at that period, it seems not impossible that the astronomical change has been the cause of the adoption of this new symbol.

Indeed, it is likewise important to point out that the LAMB too was associated with Jesus early on. This fact represents a residual reference to the Age of Aries, while the Fish is the Age of Pisces, the next age in the precession of the equinoxes. Coupled with the astrological
symbolism in other parts of the Bible, it would be logical to conclude that we are seeing more of the same here. Concerning this development, Murdock remarks:

As Moses was created to usher in the Age of Aries, so was Jesus to serve as the Avatar of the Age of Pisces, which is evident from the abundant fish imagery used throughout the gospel tale. This zodiacal connection has been so suppressed that people with the fish symbol on the back of their cars have no idea what it stands for, although they are fallaciously told it represents ―ICHTHYS,‖ as anagram for ―Jesus Christ, Son of God,
Savior,‖ ichthys also being the Greek word for fish.

At Luke 22:10 when Jesus is asked by his disciples where the last Passover will be, Jesus replied: “Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you bearing a pitcher of water… follow him into the house where he entereth in.” This scripture is by far one of the most revealing of all the astrological references. The man bearing a pitcher of water is Aquarius, the water-bearer, who is always pictured as a man pouring out a pitcher of water.
He represents the age after Pisces, and when the Sun, “God’s Sun,” leaves the Age of Pisces, “Jesus,” it will go into the House of Aquarius, as Aquarius follows Pisces in the precession of the equinoxes. All Jesus is saying is that after the Age of Pisces will come the Age of Aquarius.
Aquarius is Latin for ―water-bearer/carrier.‖ Its significance is summarized by Maxwell:

According to astrology, sometime after the year 2010, the Sun will enter His new Sign, or His new Kingdom, as it was called by the ancients. This new coming Sign/Kingdom, soon to be upon us, will be, according to the Zodiac, the House or Sign of Aquarius. So when we read in Luke 22:10, we now understand why God‘s Sun states that He and His followers, at the last Passover, are to go into ―the house of the man with the water
pitcher.‖ So we see that in the coming millennium, God‘s Sun will bring us into His new Kingdom or House of Aquarius (the man with the water pitcher).

Murdock likewise suggests that this periscope refers to the Aquarian Age:

…Jesus [evidently] makes mention of the precession of the equinoxes of the change of the ages when he says to the disciples, who are asking about how to prepare for the―Passover‖: ―Behold, when you have entered the city, a man a carrying a pitcher of water will meet you; follow him into the house which he enters…‖ (Lk 22:10) This famous yet enigmatic passage [ostensibly] refers to the ―house‖ or Age of Aquarius, theWater-Bearer, and Jesus is instructing his disciples to pass over into it.

Combined with all the evidence we have seen regarding the astrology of the Bible and Christian tradition, along with the astrotheology of much Pagan religion and mythology that Judaism and Christianity are based on, these conclusions are logical and more scientific than believing
fabulous biblical tales as either ―historical‖ or ―just made up.

In other words, the most scientific conclusion is not that various supernatural motifs found in the New Testament tale are either ―factual or simply fabricated on the spot by zealous followers of an otherwise ―historical Jesus: In reality, they are mythical, as found in the myths of predecessor gods and goddesses, and possess astrotheological meaning as they did in those myths.

Now, we have all heard about the end times and the end of the world. The cartoonish depictions in the Book of Revelation aside, a main source of this idea comes from Matthew 28:20, where Jesus says “I will be with you even to the end of the world.” However, in the King James Version, “world” is a mistranslation, among many mistranslations. The actual word being used is “aeon”, which means “age.” “I will be with you even to the end of the age.”
Which is true, as Jesus’ Solar Piscean personification will end when the Sun enters the Age of Aquarius. The entire concept of end times and the end of the world is a misinterpreted astrological allegory. Let’s tell that to the approximately 100 million people in America who believe the end of the world is coming.

As we have seen, Matthew 28:20 states: ―I will be with you even to the end of the age.‖ The Greek word ―aion‖ or ―aeon‖ means ―age.‖ If God meant to say ―end of the world,‖ He would have used the Greek word ―kosmos.‖ As it had been in previous editions such as the Bishop‘s
Bible (1568), the word was mistranslated as ―world‖ in the King James Bible but has been corrected to ―age in the New King James Version as well as several other more modern English translations.

Jerome‘s Latin Vulgate translation uses the word saeculum, which likewise means age, among other meanings. The Latin word for world is mundus.

Concerning this development, Massey remarks:  In the course of Precession, about 255 B.C., the vernal birthplace passed into the sign
of the Fishes, and the Messiah who had been represented for 2155 years by the Ram or Lamb, and previously for other 2155 years by the Apis Bull, was now imaged as the Fish, or the ―Fish-man,‖ called Ichthys in Greek.

The original Fish-man—the An of
Egypt, and the Oan of Chaldea—probably dates from the previous cycle of precession, or 26,000 years earlier; and about 255 B.C., the Messiah, as the Fish-man, was to come up once more as the Manifestor from the celestial waters. The coming Messiah is called Dag, the Fish, in the Talmud; and the Jews at one time connected his coming with
some conjunction, or occurrence, in the sign of the Fishes! This shows the Jews were not only in possession of the astronomical allegory, but also of the tradition by which it could be interpreted.

Furthermore, the character of Jesus, being a literary and astrological
hybrid, is most explicitly a plagiarization of the Egyptian sun god Horus. For example, inscribed about 3,500 years ago, on the walls at the Temple of Luxor in Egypt are images of the enunciation, the miracle conception, the birth, and the adoration of Horus. The images begin with Thoth announcing to the virgin Isis that she will conceive Horus, then Kneph the holy ghost impregnating the virgin, and then the virgin birth and the adoration.

Regarding the birth scene of Amenhotep III at Luxor, Egyptologist Dr. Sharpe states:

In this picture we have the Annunciation, the Conception, the Birth, and the Adoration, as described in the First and Second Chapters of Luke‘s Gospel; and as we have historical assurance that the chapters in Matthew‘s Gospel which contain the Miraculous Birth of Jesus are an after addition not in the earliest manuscripts, it seems probable that these two poetical chapters in Luke may also be unhistorical, and be
borrowed from the Egyptian accounts of the miraculous birth of their kings.

The Luxor nativity scene represents the birth sequence of an obviously very important god-king, as it was depicted in one of the most famous Egyptian sites that endured for some 2,000 years. Egypt, it should be kept in mind, was a mere stone‘s throw from the Israelite homeland, with a well-trodden ―Horus road,‖ called in the ancient texts the
―Ways of Horus‖ or ―Way of Horus,‖ linking the two nations and possessing numerous Egyptian artifacts, including a massive, long-lived fort and Horus temple at the site of Tharu, for instance. Moreover, at the time when Christianity was formulated, there were an estimated 1 million Jews, Hebrews, Samaritans and other Israelitish people in
Egypt, making up approximately one-half of the important and influential city of Alexandria. The question is, with all the evident influence from the Egyptian religion upon Christianity that we have seen so far—and will continue to see abundantly—were the creators of the Christian myth aware of this highly significant birth scene from this
significant temple site in Egypt? If not, these scenes were widespread enough right up to and into the common era—could the creators of Christianity really have beenoblivious to these images and the stories of royal divine births they depict?

This is exactly the story of Jesus’ miracle conception. In fact, the literary
similarities between the Egyptian religion and the Christian religion are
staggering. And the plagiarism is continuous.

Noah is but one tale in a worldwide collection of at least 500 flood myths, which are the most widespread of all ancient myths and therefore can be considered among the oldest. Stories of a great deluge are found on every inhabited continent and among a great many different language and culture groups.

However, one need look no further for a pre-Christian source than the Epic of Gilgamesh, written in 2600 B.C. This story talks of a Great Flood
commanded by God, an Ark with saved animals upon it, and even the release and return of a dove, all held in common with the biblical story, among many other similarities.

Regarding the Epic of Gilgamesh, British archaeologist Dr. R. Campbell Thompson states:

The Epic of Gilgamish, written in cuneiform on Assyrian and Babylonian clay tablets, is one of the most interesting poems in the world. It is of great antiquity, and, inasmuch as a fragment of a Sumerian Deluge text is extant, it would appear to have had its origin with the Sumerians at a remote period, perhaps the fourth millennium, or even earlier. Three tablets of it exist written in Semitic (Akkadian), which cannot be much
later than 2,000 B.C…

Justin Martyr, one of the first Christian historians and defenders, wrote:
“When we say that he, Jesus Christ, our teacher, was produced without sexual union, was crucified and died, and rose again, and ascended into Heaven, we propound nothing different from what you believe regarding those who you esteem Sons of Jupiter.”

In a different writing, Justin Martyr said “He was born of a virgin, accept this in common with what you believe of Perseus.”

It’s obvious that Justin and other early Christians knew how similar
Christianity was to the Pagan religions. However, Justin had a solution. As far as he was concerned, the Devil did it. ”The Devil had the foresight to come before Christ, and create his characteristics in the Pagan world”.
This passage from Justin Martyr is important to us, because it shows that the idea of Christianity being borrowed from earlier religions is not modern. Its similarities were talked about essentially since the beginning of the Christian era, which truly took place in the second
century.

Elsewhere in his First Apology, Justin further defends the Christian religion by explaining how similar it was to Pagan religions, including in its miracles: And in that we say that He made whole the lame, the paralytic, and those born blind, we seem to say what is very similar to the deeds said to have been done by Aesculapius. ..

The Bible is nothing more than an astrotheological literary fold hybrid,
just like nearly all religious myths before it.
The term ―astrotheology‖ goes back a couple centuries and can be generally defined as a
theology, or religion, that is symbolically derived from natural phenomena, specifically the characteristics and movements of the celestial bodies and their relationship to the earth and, consequently, to the human beings who live upon it. Ancient Greek gods were classic examples of Deity defined by processes of nature, such a Poseidon, the god of the sea, or Zeus, the sky god. Various Egyptian gods and goddesses were also highly astrotheological, as were those of
Babylon, Sumeria and India.

In fact, it is rather obvious that the tendency to believe as ―historical supernatural phenomena attributed to a god figure in various myths comes from the ‘lack of knowledge’ about astrotheology and nature worship.

This supernatural and ―historical‖ explanation for natural and astronomical mythological motifs is little different than how numerous diseases were first attributed to demons before the scientific age. In fact, the term ―Act of God is still used today on insurance forms to describe earthquakes and the like.

As we have seen, this tradition of nature worship and astrotheology—the anthropomorphizing of natural and celestial phenomena—extends very far back in time, many thousands of years ago, in many parts of the world.

More specific to the origin of Christianity itself, Dead Sea scroll scholar John M. Allegro had the following to say about the Gnostic Christians, which some claim are the earliest of the Christian sects:

”Thus for the Gnostic, as for religionists all over the world, the heavenly bodies were imbued with divinity and honoured as angelic bodies”. 

Furthermore, is there any non-biblical historical evidence of any person,
living with the name Jesus, the Son of Mary, who traveled about with 12
followers, healing people and the like? There are numerous historians who lived in and around the Mediterranean either during or soon after the assumed life of Jesus. How many of these historians document this figure? Not one.

As difficult as it is for some to believe, after nearly two millennia of searching there remains no valid, scientific evidence that the New Testament figure of Jesus Christ ever walked the earth.
As Murdock says:

We have no primary sources proving that Jesus Christ actually existed, no legal documents, no ―glyphs,‖ no papyri, no statuary, coins—nothing. All we have to go on is hearsay, the bulk of which is secondary, tertiary and so on. …Only ‘two gospels’ are accepted as having come from alleged eyewitnesses, and these constitute but a few
dozen pages with little biographical or historical material yet full of miracles, impossibilities and improbabilities. All the rest of Christian literature represents sources that are secondary and tertiary, etc.

Also, it is worth pointing out a basic logic that coincides with this revelation: How many prior deity/saviors—of which the history of this subject is full—have proved to exist in third- dimensional form?

How many people today think that Horus or Osiris existed? That Zeus or
Apollo truly lived? How many today believe Mithra or Attis were real figures in history?

In this regard, concerning the theory of euhemerism or evemerism—which posits that various gods, godmen, kings, queens, heroes and legends of ancient times were in fact real people, to whose mundane biographers were added a series of supernatural and mythical motifs—French writer Dujardin remarks:

This doctrine is nowadays discredited except in the case of Jesus. No scholar believes that Osiris or Jupiter or Dionysus was an historical person promoted to the rank of god, but exception is made only in favour of Jesus… It is impossible to rest the colossal work of Christianity if he was a man.

Furthermore, if any ―Jesus‖ had actually existed as a human, it becomes very clear that the Jesus of the canonical gospels could not possibly have been him, because there is no evidence for any of the acts performed in the biblical Christ‘s life, and the evidence that does exist suggests him to be another mythical fabrication as had been made by numerous priesthoods for thousands of years previously.

As John E. Remsburg makes clear:

That a man named Jesus, an obscure religious teacher, the basis of the fabulous Christ, lived in Palestine about nineteen hundred years ago, may be true. But of this man we know nothing. His biography has not been written.

In other words, when the mythological layers are peeled, there is no core to the onion. And, a composite of 20 people, real or mythical, is no one.

However, to be fair, that doesn’t mean defenders of the historical Jesus
haven’t claimed the contrary. Four historians are typically referenced to
justify Jesus’s existence: Pliny the younger, Suetonius, Tacitus are the first three. Each one of their entries consists of only a few sentences at best and only refer to “Christus” or the Christ, which in fact is not name but a title. It means the “Anointed one.” The fourth source is Josephus, and this source has been proven to be a forgery for hundreds of years.

Sadly, it is still cited as truth.

Before this subject is addressed, it is often argued that possibly the reason the biblically defined Jesus is not discussed outside of the gospels is because he was largely ―unknown.‖

However, this argument is contradicted by a wealth of evidence in the Bible itself. As Murdock comments in Who Was Jesus? regarding the silence of contemporary historians:

…This silence is singularly astounding, in consideration of the repeated assertions in the gospels that Christ was famed far and wide, drawing great crowds because of his miraculous healings, causing a fracas with the local and imperial authorities, and, upon his death, creating astonishing and awesome miracles and wonders the world had
never seen before, including not only an earthquake and the darkening of the sun and moon, but also dead people rising from their graves and visiting people in town….

These ―great crowds‖ and ―multitudes,‖ along with Jesus‘s fame, are repeatedly referred
to in the gospels, including at the following:

Mt 4:23-25, 5:1, 8:1, 8:18, 9:8, 9:31, 9:33,
9:36, 11:7, 12:15, 13:2, 14:1, 14:13, 14:22, 15:30, 19:2, 21:9, 26:55; Mk 1:28, 10:1; Lk
4:14, 4:37, 5:15, 14:25, etc.
335

In this regard, Jim Walker says:   If, indeed, the Gospels portray a historical look at the life of Jesus, then the one feature
that stands out prominently within the stories shows that people claimed to know Jesus far and wide, not only by a great multitude of followers but by the great priests, the Roman governor Pilate, and Herod who claims that he had heard ―of the fame of Jesus.‖ (Matt 14:1)

One need only read Matt: 4:25 where it claims that ―there followed
him [Jesus] great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judea, and from beyond Jordan.The gospels mention, countless times, the great multitude that followed Jesus and crowds of people who congregated to hear him. So crowded had some of these gatherings grown, that Luke 12:1 alleges that
an ―innumerable multitude of people… trod one upon another.‖ Luke 5:15 says that there grew ―a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear…‖ The persecution of Jesus in Jerusalem drew so much attention that all the chief priests and scribes, including the high priest Caiaphas, not only knew about him but helped in his alleged crucifixion. (see Matt 21:15-23, 26:3, Luke 19:47, 23:13). The multitude of people thought of Jesus, not only as a teacher and a miracle healer, but a prophet (see Matt:14:5). So, to say Jesus wasn‘t well known is obviously contradictory to the Gospel claims.

As concerns the purported evidence of this widely famed, miraculous advent, the most disputed and defended of the four historians listed above are Josephus and Tacitus, so it is to them that we will turn in our analysis here. (For more information about the others, as well as
Thallus, Phlegon and Mara Bar-Serapion, see Murdock‘s
Who Was Jesus?)
Flavius Josephus: Concerning the famed passage in the works of Jewish historian Josephus,
who wrote around 100
AD/CE, in ―The Jesus Forgery: Josephus Untangled,‖ Murdock writes:

Despite the best wishes of sincere believers and the erroneous claims of truculent apologists, the Testimonium Flavianum has been demonstrated continually over the centuries to be a forgery, likely interpolated by Catholic Church historian Eusebius in the fourth century. So thorough and universal has been this debunking that very few
scholars of repute continued to cite the passage after the turn of the 19
th century. Indeed, the TF was rarely mentioned, except to note that it was a forgery, and numerous books by a variety of authorities over a period of 200 or so years basically took it for granted that the Testimonium Flavianum in its entirety was spurious, an
interpolation and a forgery. In this regard, Dr. Gordon Stein relates:

…the vast majority of scholars since the early 1800s have said that this quotation is not by Josephus, but rather is a later Christian insertion in his works. In other words, it is a forgery, rejected by scholars.

Earl Doherty says, in ―Josephus Unbound‖:

Now, it is a curious fact that older generations of scholars had no trouble dismissing this entire passage as a Christian construction. Charles Guignebert, for example, in his Jesus…, calls it ―a pure Christian forgery.‖ Before him, Lardner, Harnack and Schurer, along with others, declared it entirely spurious.

Today, most serious scholars have decided the passage is a mix: original parts rubbing shoulders with later Christian additions.

The second Josephan passage, regarding James (Antiquities, 20.9), reads:

Festus was now dead, and Albinus was but upon the road; so he assembled the sanhedrin of judges, and brought before them the brother of Jesus, who was called Christ, whose name was James, and some others; and when he had formed an accusation against them as breakers of the law, he delivered them to be stoned.Critics contend that the phrase ―who was called Christ‖ is an obvious and awkward
interpolation.

Again, for more on the Testimonium Flavianum and James passage, see Murdock‘s ―The Jesus Forgery: Josephus Untangled,‖ Suns of God and Who Was Jesus?

Regarding the Josephan evidence, Jewish writer ben Yehoshua asserts:
Neither of these passages is found in the original version of the Jewish Antiquities which was preserved by the Jews. The first passage (XVII, 3, 3) was quoted by Eusebius writing in c. 320 C.E., so we can conclude that it was added in some time between the time Christians got hold of the Jewish Antiquities and c. 320 C.E. It is not known when the other passage (XX, 9, 1) was added…

Neither passage is based on any reliable sources. It is fraudulent to claim that these passages were written by Josephus and that they provide evidence for Jesus. They were written by Christian redactors and were based purely on Christian belief.

You would think that a guy who rose from the dead and ascended into
Heaven for all eyes to see and performed the wealth of miracles acclaimed to him would have made it into the historical record. He didn’t, because once the evidence is weighed, there are very high odds that the figure known as Jesus, did not even exist.

As stated by The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia (VI, 83):

The only definite account of his life and teachings is contained in the four Gospels of the New Testament, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. All other historical records of the time are silent about him.

The brief mentions of Jesus in the writings of Josephus, Tacitus and Suetonius have been generally regarded as not genuine and as Christian
interpolations; in Jewish writings there is no report about Jesus that has historical value. Some scholars have even gone so far as to hold that the entire Jesus story is a myth…

“…the Christian religion is a parody on the worship of the sun, in which
they put a man whom they call Christ, in place of the sun, and pay him the same adoration which was originally paid to the sun…”
This quote is from famous Anglo-American philosopher and revolutionary statesman Thomas Paine‘s ―Origin of Freemasonry..

The reality is, Jesus was the solar deity of the Gnostic Christian sect, and
like all other Pagan gods, he was a mythical figure.
The mythical nature of Christ is concluded from a lack of evidence for his existence and the preponderance of his alleged characteristics and deeds clearly being part of Pagan mythology, and has been demonstrated throughout this Sourcebook.

In this regard, in Man Made God, Barbara Walker says:

During the past century or so, scholars have shown that all these ―known‖ details of Jesus‘s life story are mythic: That is, they were told for many centuries before his time about many previous savior-gods and legendary heroes in pre-Christian lore. Not a single detail of Jesus‘s life story can be considered authentic. Some investigators have tried to peel away the layers of myth in search of a historical core, but this task is like
peeling the layers of an onion. It seems that there is no core. The layers of myth go all the way to the center.

It was the political establishment that sought to historicize the Jesus
figure for social control.

In 325 A.D. in Rome, Emperor Constantine convened the Council of Nicea. It was during this meeting that the politically motivated Christian doctrines were established and thus began a long history of religious bloodshed and spiritual fraud. And for over the next 1,000 years, the Vatican maintained a political stranglehold on all of Europe, leading to such joyous periods as the Dark Ages, along with enlightening events such as the Crusades, and the Inquisition.

The influence of the Roman authorities in the creation of Christianity is vast, including not only during centuries subsequent to the composition of the canonical gospels, but also within the New Testament texts themselves. As just a couple of examples, at Matthew 22:21, Jesus is made to say: ―Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s,‖ in response to a question about tribute money—a very convenient reply for the Empire. Moreover, in the Pauline
epistles, the writer continually exhorts slaves to obey their masters in everything—again, very convenient for the wealthy slave owners, whose possession are obviously under no threat from Christianity. Moreover, the author of the First Epistle of Peter (2:17) exhorts his followers to ―Honor the emperor.‖ (RSV)

In the words of John Allegro referring to the transition into what we know as Christianity today:

When, in the early fourth century, the so-called Great Church attained its goal, its internal enemies lay torn and bleeding, or scattered into the heretical wilderness. Their books were burned, their doctrines forsworn, and often intentionally perverted. Its mythology was misinterpreted and mocked, but a single figure was wrested from its rich store of imagery and made paramount, even historical. The Joshua/Jesus Cycle of
stories was pruned of some of the more improbable narratives, given an unrealistic pro Roman slant, and combined with genuine Essene moral teachings suited more to the sheltered life of a closely knit desert commune that the rough-and-tumble of secular living…

Again, for more information on who actually created Christianity, see the works of Acharya
S/D.M. Murdock.

Christianity, along with all other related theologies, is an historical fraud. These religions now serve to detach the species from the natural world and likewise each other. They support blind submission to authority. They reduce human responsibility to the effect that “God” controls everything, and in turn awful crimes can be justified in the name of a Divine Pursuit. And most critically, it empowers the political establishment, who have been using the myth to manipulate and control societies.

The religious myth is the most powerful device ever created, and serves as the psychological soil upon which other myths can flourish.

 While the conclusion here can be considered an opinion, it doesn‘t take much reflection to see how the Abrahamic religions—Christianity, Islam and Judaism—and others have been used for political purposes since the very beginning.

There is a reason why we hear politicians use the
phrase ―God Bless America or the like in other countries even today—it is usually a ploy for manipulation. During the Iraq war of 2003, there were numerous statements about God made by George W. Bush and even the media.

We have also learned that the rifles used by American
troops had notations for biblical scriptures in their scopes.
The ploy was, in part, the idea of a religious war, between Christians and Muslims, rallying both sides to the conflict in the name of competing ideologies.

Likewise, psychology has shown that, in certain cases, belief in a larger ―controlling power‖ can create numerous forms of neurosis, both limiting a sense of responsibility and promoting evangelism and prophetic delusions that breed fanaticism…

Thus, the Jesus character is not unique or original, not “divine revelation.” These redeemer tales are similar not because they reflect the actual exploits of a variety of men who did and said the identical things, but because they are representations of the same extremely ancient body of knowledge that revolved around the celestial bodies and natural forces. The result of this mythmaking has been The Christ Conspiracy: The Greatest Story Ever Sold.

In the meantime the spread of Christianity throughout the empire proceeded at a steady pace. Wherever the representatives of Mithras arrived, there a Christian community immediately sprang up. By the end of the second century, there were already at least four bishop’s sees in Britannia, sixteen in Gaul, sixteen in Spain, and one in practically every big city in North Africa and the Middle East. In 261 Christianity was recognized as lawful religion by the mithraic Gallienus and was proclaimed the official religion of the empire by the mithraic Constantine at the beginning of the fourth century, although it was still in a minority in Roman society. It was then gradually enforced upon the population of the empire, with a series of measures that culminated at the end of the fourth century with the abolition of the pagan religions and the mass “conversion” of the Roman senate.

The final situation regarding the ruling class of the Western Empire was the following: the ancient nobility of pagan origin had virtually disappeared and the new great nobility, that identified itself with the senatorial class of the landowners, was made up by former members of the Sol Invictus Mitras. On the religious level, paganism had been eliminated and Christianity had become the religion of all the inhabitants of the Empire; it was controlled by ecclesiastical hierarchies, coming entirely from the senatorial class, endowed with immense landed properties and quasi-royal powers within their sees.
The priestly families had become the absolute master of that same Empire that had destroyed Israel and the Temple of Jerusalem. All its high offices, both civil and religious, and all its wealth were in their hands, and supreme power had been entrusted in perpetuity, by divine right, to the most illustrious of the priestly tribes, the “Gens Flavia” (starting from Constantine all Roman emperors bore the name of Flavius), in all likelihood descendants of Josephus Flavius.

Three centuries earlier, Josephus had written with pride: “My family is not obscure, on the contrary, it is of priestly descent: as in all peoples there is a different foundation of the nobility, so with us the excellence of the line is confirmed by its belonging to the priestly order” (Life 1.1). By the end of the fourth century his descendants had every right to apply those same words to the Roman Empire.
At that point the institution of the Sol Invictus Mithras was no more necessary to boost the fortunes of the priestly family and it was disposed of. It had been the instrument of the most successful conspiracy in History.

“Ancient wisdom, unlike the modern, included a knowledge of trance-conditions.”  Gerald Massey – Man in search of his soul during fifty thousand years
and how he found it!


The myth is the only true narrative of the reality of human experience. It is the
only ultimately true history ever written. It is a picture and a portrayal of the
only veridical history ever lived. [. . .]


With transcendent genius the Sages formulated the systems of myths, allegories, fables, parables, numerological structures and astronomical pictographs such as the zodiac and the planispheres or uranographs to supplement the central ceremonial drama. The whole structure was, however, fabricated with such esoteric subtlety that, the keys once lost, the system has defied the best of medieval and modern acumen to recapture its cryptic import.
Alvin Boyd Kuhn


This book explores a subject whose vast outline many have labored to share with the
world before. It does not pretend to be the first or the last word on this subject, but seeing that the number of voices teaching lies (some doing so knowingly, others unwittingly and in sincerity because they themselves have been deceived) are so many and so clamorous, it seeks to add its own voice to those trying to share the truth, knowing that in so important a struggle no contribution, however small, is unwelcome.


In its examination of some of the connections between modern quantum physics, the
holographic model of the universe of modern theoretical physicists such as David Bohm, and evidence that the ancient authors and artists – going back at least as far as Stonehenge– were describing the same phenomenon, perhaps it offers some new perspectives that will prove valuable in shedding light on the truth about our ancient forebears and the nature of the universe they seem to have understood so many millennia before the modern physicists.


In its examination of the evidence surrounding the violent suppression of the ancient
wisdom by actors on the stage of Rome during the first three centuries AD, and the
evidence that the “shamanic, holographic” model was abundantly represented in “the west”(certainly in ancient Egypt and in the
mysteria found throughout the Mediterranean and the Levant), and in its application of the historic details of that catastrophe as sketched out by Flavio Barbiero to the broader issue of the loss of the ancient wisdom, it also may be breaking some new ground towards discovering the thieves who “stole the gold from the temple” and replaced the deep truths with lies.


This subject is hardly one of merely academic or even esoteric interest – the evidence suggests that those who perpetrated that conspiracy in the days of the Roman Empire remain in control of the levers of power in “the west” today, and that in the intervening centuries they have devoted themselves to erecting a spiritual tyranny to deliberately enslave millions under their control, and at the same time to violently stamping out the ancient shamanic-holographic wisdom everywhere else.


In fact, many of those who are most familiar with ancient scriptures in the west today,
specifically those found in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, have been
accustomed to study them only through a literalist lens. This is true not only of
“fundamentalist” or other forms of strict literalists, but also of those who may reject many strictly literal passages within those scriptures, while still believing that they teach the existence of and demand belief in a historical figure named Jesus, his twelve disciples, their literal adventures in a region between Galilee and a terrestrial Jerusalem, themselves descendants of twelve literal tribes of Israel (specifically from the two which did not get “lost”), who also had literal adventures in the same geographic region centuries before, and who were descended from twelve literal sons of Jacob-Israel, who was a literal son of Isaac, the literal son of the historical figure named Abraham.


For the purposes of the discussions in this book, all those teachings which assert that these scriptures are primarily intended to be understood as describing literal historical figures are grouped under the term “literalist,” while recognizing that there still exists a wide range within literalism regarding hermeneutics and doctrine. Those who would assert that the twelve tribes of Israel were no more (and no less) intended to be taken strictly literally than Heracles was in Greece or Coyote in North America, and that the same is true of the stories in the New Testament, are generally considered to have left the fold of orthodoxy.


For those who begin this book while still locating themselves somewhere within the
literalist camp, I can only offer the perspective that I have been there myself, and the hope that they approach the evidence presented herein with the attitude that they would rather know the truth than accept the assertions of other (interested) parties that the literalist interpretation is the only way to believe that these scriptures are, in fact, True.

On the contrary, it may be that it is by understanding them esoterically, that is to say
gnostically, shamanically, or even (if you will) holographically, that they are seen to be
True, and that an honest reading of them will show that they were never intended to be understood literally or their truth to be limited to a literal, historical “truth.”


It is a fact that for centuries they were not allowed to even be translated into the languages of the common people, so that the clergy could be the only ones to consult them in detail.


The penalty for translating and publishing them was death, a penalty which was meted out to William Tyndale (1484 – 1536), among others who dared to oppose this oppressive, tyrannical, and unnatural measure. It should at least be considered that at least one very
important reason for keeping these scriptures from widespread circulation and examination was the fear that their undeniably esoteric nature would be noticed, for the stories of the twelve tribes of Israel, or the adventures of Samson, or the cycle of the Christ and his twelve disciples, or even the graphic symbols of the book of the Apocalypse (the Revelation of John) all plainly correspond to the book of the sky: the motions of the sun, moon, and visible planets against the backdrop of the infinite heavens and their constellations – in particular the twelve figures of the zodiac.

In this, they take their place among all the other ancient esoteric sacred traditions of the world, from ancient Egypt to ancient Greece, to ancient China and all the other
manifestations of the collective heritage of our planet. And in fact, as this book will argue, they teach the same thing. It is only due to a conspiracy which sought to steal this knowledge from the human race, and restrict it to a tiny few, while destroying every vestige of it everywhere else, that so many now accept the fiction foisted upon the world by the literalist believers in the historical Jesus and the historic twelve tribes, which severed one branch of faith from the rest of humanity, and set it against all the others. Its descendants and converts are still at it today.

Gerald Massey wrote in The Natural Genesis (1883) that the misunderstanding of typology (by which he meant the literalist misunderstanding) has led to a – “most terrible tyranny in the mental domain,” an apt metaphor.3 For the conflict under investigation in this book is a war between those who would enslave others through their control of the high ground in “the mental domain” and those who believe that this high ground should be open to all who seek it.

To give lies to the seeker when you possess the truth is abhorrent.

The treasure of mankind’s ancient wisdom is the ‘birthright of all men and women’ who earnestly seek to know the truth. What follows is offered in service to that truth.David Warner Mathisen
