Here Comes the Sun, pt. 4: One and the Same

I think if confronted with the rampant solar symbolism that is now reemerging in Christian symbology, most believers would tell you that Christians "worship the Creator and not the Creation." But in fact that belief is no different than the high initiate pagan tradition in general, or the Mystery tradition in particular. Initiates didn't see pagan symbolism as did the masses- they saw all of the icons and symbols as tools for meditating on higher levels of reality, exactly as Christians were once supposed to. By the same token, today's Evangelicals don't see the Bible as believers once did; a text to be read and understood. The Bible is mainly seen today as a magic totem that can not only do all your thinking for you, it can heal your bunions, make you rich, get you a promotion and a bigger SUV, etc. Whatever.

The more I dig into this history, the more I see men hiding behind curtains that official historians are hoodwinked by. Alternative historians take for granted that the decisions of men like Constantine were actually made by secret priesthoods pulling the strings behind the scenes. Considering that Constantine was the illegitimate son of a tavern whore, it's not all that difficult to believe.

But despite centuries of judicious editing and rewriting, there is still plenty of evidence showing that any substantive difference between Christians and the Solarians was purely a question of rank politicking. Maybe as we enter the Era of Unmasking, those differences will once again fall away. Whatever the case, something is happening. I have absolutely no doubts about that. And it cuts across every denomination. And maybe there's an opportunity in this for a new understanding of the Western traditions. I'll be exploring that possibility in my next exegesis.

Now back to the symbols, with Christian writings as an added bonus:

For, behold, the day cometh, it burneth as a furnace; and all the proud, and all that work wickedness, shall be stubble; and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith Jehovah of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the sun of righteousness arise with healing in its wings; and ye shall go forth, and gambol as calves of the stall.
- Malachi 4:1-2

And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High;
for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him,
to give his people the knowledge of salvation
through the forgiveness of their sins,
because of the tender mercy of our God,
by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven
to shine on those living in darkness
- Luke 1: 76-79 (NIV)

O splendor of God's glory bright,
O Thou that bringest light from light,

O Light of Light, light's Living Spring,

O Day, all days illumining.
O Thou true Sun, on us
Thy glance
let fall in royal radiance,
The Spirit's sanctifying beam
upon our earthly senses stream.
-
Saint Ambrose

Others of kinder disposition imagine that the sun is the Christian god. They have observed that when we pray, we face to the east and we rejoice on the day of the sun. Do you do anything less than this? Do you not sometimes cause your lips to quiver toward the rising sun as an act of adoration? It is most definitely your preference to single out Sunday, the seventh day from the sequence, to refrain from bathing, at least until evening? This is also your designated day for leisure and festivity. By doing this you depart from your traditional practices in favor of alien religions. The Jewish festivals are the Sabbath and the feast of purification. And the Jews also have the rite of the lamps and of fasting with unleavened bread and prayers at the seashore -- all of which are alien to your gods. Now to return to our subject, you who deride us for sun worship and Sunday worship, see how close you are to us. We are not far removed from your Saturn and your Sabbath. - Tertullian



For the sun is a type of God, and the moon of man. And as the sun far surpasses the moon in power and glory, so far does God surpass man. And as the sun remains ever full, never becoming less, so does God always abide perfect, being full of all power, and understanding, and wisdom, and immortality, and all good. But the moon wanes monthly, and in a manner dies, being a type of man; then it is born again, and is crescent, for a pattern of the future resurrection. - Theophilus


O unjust pagans, how long will you refuse to acknowledge your own merits? In fact how long will you continue to disparage them? There is no real difference between us. We are one and the same. Since you in fact cannot hate what you are, then extend your right hand to us, join kisses with kisses, hold us in your embrace, the bloody with the bloody, the incestuous with the incestuous, the conspirators with the conspirators, the contemptuous and the vacant together with their own kind. We have been partners in insulting the gods; we have been partners in provoking their anger. - Tertullian

  1. The quotes are great, especially the ones from Tertullian. Here's one from Ezekial 8:15-16:

    Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.

    And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.

    Those old prophets were such hard asses.

  2. I mentioned it previously, but in case it was missed, you might want to check out the book "Jesus Christ Son of God" by David Fideler, published by Quest Books.

    And here's a little comment that perhaps should have gone on the previous blog post, but oh well...

    Have been enjoying the podcasts you've been doing...was particularly interested to hear you talk about one movie I'd been working on of late, the "Dark
    City" film...which I made a comment about on your blog
    (something about a mystery play celebrating the move out of the Platonic year of Pisces into Aquarius, not to mention a fairly straight-forward replay of the
    hero's underworld quest).

    Anyway, enjoyed your latest blog post. You observe:

    "We're seeing humanity lumber towards a crisis point,
    when the basic commodities of modern life are being tapped by more and more of us. Some people might prophesy a Soylent Green type world, but these are usually idealist/liberal types who ignore the basic lesson of history- wars always begin when the granaries begin to run low."

    Well, yes, tapped by more and more of us...but at the same time the top of the pyramid has manipulated a situation where they, through corporate and NG-organizations, have increasingly achieved a
    monopoly over food production and distribution...it's an old story, read some of Henry K's old work for
    e.g...do a little check into the Codex Alimentarius or the strategies of MONSANTO...

    My take on it, subject to modification as I learn more, is that the top of the pyramid is basically psychopathic...and we're quickly coming to a point well-past the time of the industrial revolution so that the masses of humanity are redundant...and we've
    basically been scheduled for genocide. Rather than actually educate folks and bring everyone up through something approximating Maslow's hierarchy of needs and allow real and postive
    (and much needed) change to happen, we've been fenced-in, dumbed down, drugged and fattened for slaughter...perhaps this too is in the "cards" (or "stars" if you push the card analogy back) for
    humanity, but it seems to me a rather severe way to go... Alternative technologies, alternative lifepaths, alternative sources of energy have been
    consistently repressed... As Zbigniew Brzezinski has
    observed (and I paraphrase), you can control things easier if you provide the options of action...and
    that's basically what has been done.

    The psychopathic values of money and power and the accompanying devaluation of life seem to have
    captured the gameboard...and the machinations of the ruling elite seem to have more than hedged their
    bets. I'm talking about their development of control mechanism and survival strategies. My guess is that they think they are going to come through even the inevitable Mother Earth/Nature changes that they themselves seem to be aware of, come through and come out again, at the top
    of the pile...

    But yes...humanity is a great being, with living roots
    in Momma Nature (Eve; mother of ALL living - not just
    humans)...and the Tree will bear fruit despite the grubs that seem to have turned most of the leaves
    brown...and yeah, i think to an extent, those who've
    had their "meaning" third-eyes opened, whether it be
    through synchromystical investigations or otherwise,
    have been given the gift of participating with the
    Greater Being (not the Greater Machine)...and just "Do
    It" full-speed ahead and don't worry about the result...very "magical" approach is it not? And yeah, play the fool...and walk on the edge of the
    abyss...(the Fool of the Tarot is a very apt.choice)...

    Peace, Zane

    Chris i wanted to just drop something ive been pondering personally lately and i also want to thank you for all of your incredible work in the synch net it inspires me to no end to have others who are picking up on the patterns of this organism unfurling and realizing itself. Ive been trying to come to an understanding about what weve been presented here with the illuminated magi who seem to have hacked this matrix and gained control over the symbols, the food energy, the sun energy, human energy, emotionl energy. I came out of an experience with an understanding that this solar symbolism comes from the fact that these beings who are in the know or in control know that patterns of language from the source of this organism seem to emanate from the sun. The sun symbolism seems to me to come from the fact that they worship this giant information processor called the sun the sun seems to be the closest expression of "the creator" to us but it is only a vessel for the newest forms of novelty or language or information from essence that all things emenate from. It has been releasing patterns of energy/language throughout the universe illuminating our planets surface and creating extensions of the patterns of energy that it generates that we call nature, or the matrix of reality ( mother nature, matter, matrix, etc.) So it seems that the light seed enters the feminine whomb and expresses divine equations of information creating the poetry of mother nature or matrix. Nature is then turned into resources for these people to highten their ability to absorb these emenating equations/language from each new horus(or the tip of the creative titlewave that is infinately expanding). These beings have been aware of the cycles of this sun and and its surrounding planets and their available energies so they know the available equations and emanations from the source of this matrix and when and how to perform the best manipulations of our matrix. But we are all godforms and there is a reason that they have to create these matrixes of institutions and governments and authorities for us to navigate. We are all at the cusp of a giant organism realizing itself via the coming emanations of language/energy from this source that we have been calling the sun. The sun is a phsycial metaphor for the huge right/creative brain of the universe. These people have grabbed the archetypes provided by our DNA from the sun so that they themselves can be on the highest hills to absorb the language of the creator, or the giant computer/organism that is reality. I do though have a feeling that as the organism realizes itself these people begin to lose much much energy and have to perform more dire and more dire energy sacrifices (911, world wars, famine, env. destruction, genocide etc.) I do not for a moment think that these sages will have this control forever. It seems to me as though they have a deadline around 2012 or the cosmic microchips biggest burp or reframgentation. The unveiling of these mysteries and these peoples bloodlines and practices is increasing and we are all becoming aware of our divinity because their power comes from keeping our divinity unknown to us. The human organism is waking up and the parasites at the tip of the human pineal gland will no longer be able to farm our spiritual energies. Come the cosmic burp in 2012 we will all drink from the sun and share and express the language of the creator in divine harmony.

    I've known about Codex and Monsanto and ADM for at least a decade. I'm not sure they are using NGOs for supply control, they seem to work more on policy issues. What's obvious is that we're looking at micromanagement and ordered agriculture. I've been reading sky-is-falling stuff for over 10 years but I'm still not sure what is going to play out. I do know that we are dealing with a situation where for whatever reason, our infrastructures for food and fuel are being pushed to the limit. By design or not, the facts are the same. But I told everyone I knew 10 years ago that all the Hummers and Yukons and Excursions were going to get us in trouble and lo and behold that future is here.

    We can blame Monsanto all the live long day (go ahead, I won't mind at all) but the problem is that rampant materialism has left our borders and infected the entire world. Everyone in the world wants a 60 inch plasma and a McMansion and a Hummer. I hope to do whatever tiny bit I can to create an environment where those ambitions are redundant. I hope that people reading share that ambition.

    "My take on it, subject to modification as I learn more, is that the top of the pyramid is basically psychopathic..."

    That's an incredibly dangerous belief. It's certainly open to argument that they are sociopathic, but to call them psychopaths is to not only misuse the term, but to fail to come to grips with what their agenda is or may be. There's a lot of name-calling out there which is a understandable symptom of political impotence. But the top of the pyramid as I understand is not filled with dysfunctional psychopaths, but extremely cold-minded, ruthlessly efficient individuals who see themselves as the selfless stewards of the planet and the rest of us as greedy, ignorant, petty and childish impediments to progress. At NYCC fans kept asking me about supervillains and I told them that the real supervillains see themselves as heroes. Lex Luthor thinks the world would be much better off if he ran, same with Doctor Doom. We saw the same thing with Hitler, Stalin, Mao, etc etc.


    "and we're quickly coming to a point well-past the time of the industrial revolution so that the masses of humanity are redundant...and we've

    observed (and I paraphrase), you can control things easier if you provide the options of action...and
    that's basically what has been done."


    Well, do what you can to not be redundant and to not follow those options of action. You can spend your whole life being against things and in my experience that's how the system gets you. It dangles a million unsolvable injustices in front of you and makes you believe that A. they're your fault and B. you can do something about them. Choose to be for something. Whatever happens you can live with yourself, knowing you chose to act positively.

    "The psychopathic values of money and power and the accompanying devaluation of life seem to have
    captured the gameboard...and the machinations of the ruling elite seem to have more than hedged their
    bets. I'm talking about their development of control mechanism and survival strategies. My guess is that they think they are going to come through even the inevitable Mother Earth/Nature changes that they themselves seem to be aware of, come through and come out again, at the top

    Or maybe they've sent out a bunch of honey-throated shills to convince you they are omnipotent and resistance is futile. How easy it would be to shut off all of the sensitives but putting some charming shill with a tabula rasa CV out there who brainwashes them with negativity until they all curl up and die.

    How do you want to live? Do you want to sit around waiting for the blade to come down or do you want at least try to be self-motivated? Do what you can within whatever limitations you are faced with. Read some of the old heroic myths- they might inspire you.


    "But yes...humanity is a great being, with living roots
    in Momma Nature (Eve; mother of ALL living - not just
    humans)...and the Tree will bear fruit despite the grubs that seem to have turned most of the leaves

    Well, if I'm successful here I'll show you the substructure of reality and maybe we can all appeal to higher powers to get us out of the fix we are all in. Or maybe it all needs to fall apart before it can be rebuilt. We're all living on the legacy of wartime mass production, and we're facing a situation where the entire world is exhausted by it.

    In the end, this is a culture blog and it's about the Psyche. I've gotten some lectures for being insufficiently political here but there are plenty of places to go for that. I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing. I'm not talking to the masses, I'm talking to individuals of above-average intelligence, perception and motivation. Your lot is different than everyone else's and so are your responsibilities. When they come and jack me into the hive, then I'll stop doing what I'm doing.

  5. Hey, Michael: the Biblical quote you used...

    "And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east."

    ...was a great one for describing just how much gnosis of God was to be wiped away from the minds of the faithful - in favor, rather, of always *seeking* for God in idols and establishments... establishments, mind you, that envisaged sexual acts such as the Tabernacle (the house of the Lord) being the womb into which the Cohen (priest) would enter, covered with oils and saps to fertilize the space. Then the Ark would do its electrical thing and for 72 hours the priest would tryp out.

    But still. I'd have to say that nothing's wrong with solar (or lunar or celestial) worship as long as it doesn't involve pyramid scheming amongst us. We are, after all, borne of that space-stuff, and are recieving life from the electromagnetic and chemical-producing Aten. Quantum physics these days would have you understand that no elements would exist from the void of space without the "word" of the sun and the devouring of it by black holes, which further add complexity to universal chemistry.

    Nebulae would not be, nor would you or me, without the force behind solar power.

    But then we'd be toast, too, if the moon wasn't a geodynamic partner which upholds the integrity of our magnetic field. IT even puts cyclic motion to the otherwise solid iron/silica/water core to spawn the health of continents and the blueprint of carbon/silicon life either way... and it makes water go up and down. Always a plus. Weather systems are kinda crucial.

    So the feminine rocks just as well.

    I'd say that universe worship is the best, and that Templar geometry is still pretty awesome when used without the whole political vengeance financial world takeover BS. Screw those guys.

    New club time!

    ;D
