A Very Sirius Election: Bringing it All Back Home

Angelic beings descend to Earth from Sirius in classic Masonic Tracing Board

Ancient Egyptian historians will tell you quite soberly that for thousands of years the gods themselves walked the earth and ruled their land. When the gods left, the Throne of Horus was created. The so-called "Horus Kings," took the gods' place until the establishment of the First Dynasty.

Following in the footsteps of the Horus Kings were the Shemsu Hor, or "Followers of Horus," a priesthood-slash-secret society based in Heliopolis that sought to return to the Zep Tepi - a term meaning "First Time," the time of the rule of the gods. Their religion is encoded into the great monuments of Egypt, most notably the Necropolis at Giza. Much of the Shemsu Hor's symbolism deals with Horus retracing the steps Osiris took through the cosmos, which in turn they themselves would follow to the Zep Tepi.

The Shemsu Hor counted among their member many of the country's greatest architects, and soon similar groups such as the Dionysian Artificers (dedicated like the Shemsu Hor to Osiris-Dionysus) and later the Mithraic Cults (made up of soldiers, much like the Horus warrior cults) carried on with the work of the Shemsu Hor, creating a lineage that floruished in the first half of the 20th Century and still continues on to this day. The various Freemasonic orders, Skull & Bones and the other senior societies, political groups like the CFR, civic groups like the Rotarians- there is a whole host of interconnected groups that in some way have their roots in the Shemsu Hor.

What is stunning is that Thomas Paine wrote of this lineage in the early 18th Century, drawing upon connections he had in London and Paris with high ranking Freemasons. What's more, Paine revealed that the Shemsu Hor had spread out all over Europe in the centuries before Christ and created a network of groups that included the Druids:
The religion of the Druids, as before said, was the same as the religion of the ancient Egyptians. The priests of Egypt were the professors and teachers of science, and were styled priests of Heliopolis, that is, of the City of the Sun. The Druids in Europe, who were the same order of men, have their name from the Teutonic or ancient German language; the German being anciently called Teutones.
Now here is the truly mind-blowing connection -- almost two centuries before Hancock and Bauval -- the Druids venerated the "First Cause," nearly identical to the "First Time" of the Shemsu Hor:
To come then at once to the point, Masonry (as I shall show from the customs, ceremonies, hieroglyphics, and chronology of Masonry) is derived and is the remains of the religion of the ancient Druids; who, like the Magi of Persia and the Priests of Heliopolis in Egypt, were Priests of the Sun. They paid worship to this great luminary, as the great visible agent of a great invisible first cause whom they styled "Time without limits."
GNOSIS IS POWER

When you read the ancient texts - particularly the Sumerian and Egyptian- a picture becomes very clear- the gods descended from the heavens, created men and taught them the arts of civilization and then returned to the stars. Over time, scholars have seen all of this as metaphor. That's scholars for you. Everything is a metaphor.

But what if your business was power? Government, religion, the culture industry, the military- if you could somehow ingratiate yourself to these "gods" to the point that somehow they decide to align themselves with you, well, that would be the ultimate advantage. Wouldn't it? The question becomes how do you even contact these beings?

From Seqenenre Tao to the Mystery Cults to the Gnostics to the Cathars to the Templars to the Freemasons and beyond, we see a tradition sealed by blood oaths, a very ancient tradition of people willing to die to keep their sects secrets. Why? Where does this come from? Was there once a secret so profound that to reveal it would cause such harm that only the penalty of torture and death could keep it hidden?

I've been studying this dilemma for several years and none of the secrets these groups supposedly kept were even all that interesting, never mind profound (Morals and Dogma will bore you to the point where you pray for the sweet release of death). I'm not sure exactly when it happened, but at some point in the last year or two I became convinced that there had to be something else. Perhaps something lost in time that we could only figure out by reading the symbols and metaphors these groups couched their secrets in. And that process began to pick up speed in the Imperial Age, with breakthroughs like the discovery of the Rosetta Stone.

THE SECOND RENAISSANCE

A funny thing happened with the rise of science and technology in the 18th and 19th Centuries. The obsession with these ancient "superstitions" didn't fade into Randian hyper-rationalism, it exploded. The 19th Century saw a new Renaissance of Masonic-derived orders like the Theosophists and the Golden Dawn. At the same time the Rosetta Stone was found and deciphered, external models of what would once seem miraculous were either being imagined or actually manufactured. And eventually all of those ancient myths made a new kind of sense- these were not incorporeal deities, these were advanced beings from another solar system, mistaken for gods by primitive humans.

So while most Freemasons are in it simply for the steak and beer, a scattered few have dusted off all of those old tomes and tried to figure out what all of it is really all about. Same with others in other cults, sects, secret societies, and religious institutions. And one need look no further than Hollywood blockbusters like the Stargate or Indiana Jones franchises to realize this concept has seized the imaginations of some of our most powerful culture creators.

So when you look at all of this ancient symbolism being used today, you can chalk it a lot of it up to diffusion and corruption, but I'm willing to bet that the guys who really understand what it all means are trying to make contact. After all, you may have noticed that the guy who directed this year's Indiana Jones ancient astronaut extravaganza is also one of the major benefactors of SETI, The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence.

And oh, surprise of surprises, "Seti" also happens to be the name of one of Egypt's most important Pharaohs.


But let's take a look at what even caught my eye about this election in the first place...

PHILAEDELPHIA

The very next day after the Republicans lost the Congress in 2006, the Franklin Institute of Philadelphia announced that it would play host for the first stop on the King Tut revival tour.


I went to the show last year on my birthday. It was pretty amazing. Now, I don't know about you guys, but I have a hard time believing that they haven't found at least a few tombs just like King Tut's. Neither do I believe the story that Tut's tomb was just some little afterthought, found off the beaten path in a gulley somewhere. Because Tut is one of the most important Pharaohs in Egyptian history, at least to this whole orbit of groups descended from the Shemsu Hor. Why?

Because Tut restored the Throne of Horus.

There can be no overstating the importance of the reign of King Tut to the Shemsu Hor and their descendants. Tut came to power after Akhenaten's disastrous monotheistic experiment (Akhenaten's alien connections are a whole other story). Let's take a look at excerpts from The Restoration Stela of Pharaoh Tutankhamun:

The good god, son of Amun, son of Kamutef [literally, Bull-of-his-Mother, title of Horus], the good son, the holy egg whom Amun created, father of the Two Lands, the one who makes the one who made him, the ba's of Heliopolis united in order to form him, to be King forever and ever, as Horus, living immortally. He is the effective King who did what was good for his father and all the gods. He restored everything that was ruined, to be his monument forever and ever. He has vanquished chaos from the whole land and has restored Ma'at to her place. He has made lying a crime, the whole land being made as it was at the time of creation.

Now when His Majesty was crowned King the temples and the estates of the gods and goddesses from Elephantine as far as the swamps of Lower Egypt had fallen into ruin. Their shrines had fallen down, turned into piles of rubble and overgrown with weeds. Their sanctuaries were as if they had never existed at all. Their temples had become footpaths. The world was in chaos and the gods had turned their backs on this land. If an army was sent to Djahy to extend the boundaries if Egypt, it would have no success. If you asked a god for advice, he would not attend; and if one spoke to a goddess likewise she would not attend. Hearts were faint in bodies because everything that had been, was destroyed.

Astonishing. According to the priests of Amun (a biased source, to be sure) armies could not win their battles and the gods would not speak to men under Akhenaten's monotheism. Without the Throne of Horus in its place - which the gods themselves had established in their absence- the gods would not recognize Egypt as their own. That's how important this symbolism was to these people.

So we had the rise of the great Monotheistic religions, which succeeded where Akhenaten failed. And yet we have this constant underground lineage- the Mithraic cults to the Knights Templar to the Alchemists to the Kabbalists to the Rosicrucians to the Freemasons and beyond. Ancient symbolism is used to identify all of these groupings, that is to say, the ancient symbolism derived from the traditions of the Shemsu Hor.

Philadelphia is an interesting city for a few reasons. First of all, it was first capital of the United States and hosted the first Constiutional Convention. There's a mammoth Masonic lodge there, just a short walk from the Franklin Institute, named in honor of the famous founding father and Freemason/Rosicrucian/Hellfire Club Initiate. But there may be a double entendre at work here: "Philly" brings us back to Philae, the ancient Egyptian city sacred to Isis (particularly in Roman times) and believed to be one of the burial places of Osiris.

And according to some traditions, Philae is the site of the First Land- the Primordial Mound to emerge from Chaos. Might this not be particularly significant to a tradition that venerates the "First Time?"

And what else happened in Philly not so long ago?



Here's the video we looked at before of the UFOs that appeared while Bruce Springsteen sang at a rally for Obama in Philly (there is a much clearer shot of the disks here). Bruce also performed "The Rising" in Philly, which was played at Obama's victory rally in Grant Park in Chicago following the president-elect's speech. And of course, we looked at the strange Phoenix imagery flashed onscreen as that song played. It was in Philadelphia that Obama gave his famous speech on race and politics, which came at a crucial point in his campaign. (Kudos to Todd Campbell for reminding us the Philaedelphia Phillies won the World Series over the Tampa Bay Rays (Re, Ra) a week before the election).

First issue of National Geographic published in 2008

So why is this apparent UFO sighting at an Obama rally so important to the narrative? It has to do with where it happened. These UFOs hovered not only above an Obama rally, but over the Franklin Institute, where the King Tut exhibit premiered on its latest tour through the US and UK. And remember who King Tut is- he is the Pharoah who restored the Throne of Horus, put in place by the gods themselves. And how do many people believe those gods came to Earth? In UFOs.

Now, we have no reason to believe these UFOs in Philly were necessarily an alien craft, but in the symbolic narrative it doesn't have to be. That's the whole point of ritual- the symbol is often more powerful than what it is actually meant to symbolize.

THE SYMBOLIC NARRATIVE

(aka the Dog Star)-illustrated by Lady Freda Harris

We looked at the Obama and McCain campaign logos, which split Stairway to Sirius iconography between them. It was Obama who had the Stairway itself, so I guess it's not surprising he's coming to power with big majorities in Congress, and a crushing victory in the Electoral College (who, of course, actually pick our president for us). Note that in his first press conference Obama continued to ride the dog motif, driving Synchromystics out of their minds.

Step Pyramid of Djoser in Saqqara- The Stairway to Sirius

We also have a strange speech by Obama filled with Masonic double entendres and a inexplicable money shot of a Phoenix atop a flagpole right after it. Of course, this all fits into the symbolic narrative- the Phoenix was venerated in Heliopolis, the headquarters of the Shemsu Hor. And - of course- the Phoenix is sacred to the Zep Tepi- when the gods walked the Earth. (I find the Phoenix symbolism the most troubling, given its implications).

So ask yourself- why are we bombarded with all of this ancient symbolism all of the time- in films, on TV, in advertising? Why is there this vast network of secret societies that pick and groom the best and the brightest among us to get us all to dance to their tune? What is the New World Order really all about? What's the point of any of it?

Now ask yourself this- what could be that secret that people would be willing to die for? How about this: human beings were engineered somehow through whatever science we are only now beginning to understand, by beings who left the planet and will come back one day to take control once again. And maybe- just maybe- they are still in contact with a few of us and have been working behind the scenes to prepare their return. That sounds a bit more urgent than some spiritual or mystical ruminations, no?

still frame from newsreel footage of mass UFO sighting in Los Angeles in 1942 known as "Battle of Los Angeles"


What if all this symbolism we're seeing is all part of some ceremony, some strange ritual meant to summon these beings back to Earth? Or even freakier, what if it's a kind of "Welcome Home" party?

It's hard to believe, it sounds crazy to some people. You don't have to believe it. But what if they do?

It's funny- we accept that baseball players have all sorts of strange, superstitious rituals they perform before a game or before they go to bat. We've got thousands of years of rituals before wars, before a ship is launched or before a new leader is seated. We know that a strange new death cult has appeared among drug runners in Mexico. We have a whole host of religious traditions with billions of adherents in which people beg and cajole gods and angels who travel back and forth from the heavens (read: outer space) and act pretty much the way the gods in the ancient myths of Sumer and Egypt did.

So what's so hard to grasp about politicians in a governmental system created by Freemasons- the spiritual descendants of a priesthood dedicated to bringing the gods back to Earth- doing the same thing? Especially when the stakes are so much higher?

    Wow...a lot to digest here - especially the ritualistic aspect of our popular culture. I hope I do not get indigestion:)

    Perhaps you could elaborate a little on the whole 'Phoenix' aspect of the ritual. The fiery death and rebirth thing gives me pause also.

    A well thought out post.

  3. I agree with your mystic mindseye. What is to fear from this sun cult? Perhaps the golden age is near? Mr. Obama looks much like an egyptian. Perhaps Nibiru will bring back some inteligence from afar. 2012 could be the date for our re-union with our makers. I think the secret is that not all human-beings will be worthy of our ancestors. Rush Limbaugh and W might have to wait for the next round of soul harvesting. Shine forth brave souls! Respectfully, Dennis from Oregon.

    Hey Chris,

    Great post - I love the stuff on the Shemsu Hor. Where can I get some more? The best I've come across is Bauval and Hancock (and your posts), Gardiner's Shining Ones was pretty weak, are there other decent sources?

    Thanks,

  5. Wow! Thanks for the feedback, guys. Now to the questions:

    1. The Phoenix is pretty self-explanatory- it's like Kali's dance. Death and rebirth. The fiery death part kind of worries me. One of the reasons I worry about UFO cults is that scene in ID4 at the Library Tower.

    2. Dennis, see above! Track down some Eternals comics, where the gods come back and decide whether we should be wiped off the planet or not. See X-Files as well....

    3. Dave- very little out there on them. Cross reference with Heliopolis, sun cult, Ra priesthood, etc.

  6. Great post, and provocative "hang out". No big surprise to long readers of the Secret Sun...

    I have a great local synch, because the coolest house on my block was designed by an Architecture firm named Heliotrope! Big Obama sign out front, of course.

    Geez, maybe Ahkenaten really WAS Moses. Something sure shook up those Sons of Horus back in the day. The King Tut exhibit has been traveling for a very long time, I remember seeing it in Seattle as a teenager. "They" really want us to see it. Steve Martin had a minor hit around it. Something about "Martin" that continually pings...

    Cheers, Michael

    Interesting Great Pyramid anecdotes:

    the sarcophagus in the King's Chmaber of the Great Pyramid has been moved from its proper location in the chamber by members of Hawass's closest group.

    Legend has it that when it is in the correct position, 'tween the shafts in the center of the chamber, and you lay in it, your soul(ar) being is transported somewhere else (a la the reports recorded by Paul Brunton).

    Its current position at the far end of the chamber from the passage entrance renders it non-functional, in the "soul transport" aspect.

    Legend also has it that the most "powerful" area within the GP is just within the entrance of the shaft which is just above the shelf in the pit.

    Also, when 2 or more individuals are with the KC of the GP and intonate the correct chant/mantra tones, the stones of the Pyramid itself can be heard to sing by those on the outside.

    Any ideas as to why the GP is "off-limits" during Ramadan?

    ;)

  8. Fascinating post CK, some ideas and questions:

    I agree that the possibility of "them coming back" is more urgent than the spiritual and mystical ruminations. Though I'd suggest that individuation or *insert favorite metaphor here* might be even more important then to empower ourselves mentally.

    Have you seen Earth Final Conflict? Based on Roddenberry stuff, I saw the first episode yesterday and am intrigued, though don't know what to think of it yet.

    First episode spoiler:
    Aliens come to Earth, bring new medicine and new farming tech, but a human at the top fakes his own death so he can keep a close eye on the aliens which he doesn't trust completely at all. (no spoilers deeper in the show please if anyone's seen it ;p)

    Do you think the possible over-arching Secret Society of Secret Societies "Shemsu Hor" then simply replaces the contemporary notion of the much mis-used and mis-understood "Illuminati"? I guess "close enough" comes to mind.

    I was wondering speculatively (or speculating wonderously? :p),

    What if in the case aliens are coming back, they are going to be "playing Kali" ending the Kali Yuga? Can be interpreted in negative (there is no golden age coming on this level, quite the contrary), positive (there is a golden age coming on this level) and non-dual ways (we're evolving to another level and/or age and kali 'has' to do her 'dance' for that Or you know, no such thing as a yuga. Or *fill in here*

    Reality is soooo weird.

    Penny for your thoughts! Thanks

    Well, here's my take on it- when and if there is ever a contact event, all human activity comes to a standstill and every field of human endeavor is called into question. Immediately people begin to subtly resist authority while they contemplate whether they might get a better deal with the ETs.

    Well, any regular reader of the Secret Sun knows that when Roddenberry talks, it's a good idea to listen....

    Do you think the possible over-arching Secret Society of Secret Societies "Shemsu Hor" then simply replaces the contemporary notion of the much mis-used and mis-understood "Illuminati"? I guess "close enough" comes to mind.

    We don't really know if they exist, though as I said before Hancock believes they do. I'm still collating- all I know is that there certainly seems to be some sort of master plan in place but no real plausible candidate for master planner. Which is where I start to wonder about biochemical software programmed into our DNA, really loopy stuff like that.

    What if in the case aliens are coming back, they are going to be "playing Kali" ending the Kali Yuga? Can be interpreted in negative (there is no golden age coming on this level, quite the contrary), positive (there is a golden age coming on this level) and non-dual ways (we're evolving to another level and/or age and kali 'has' to do her 'dance' for that Or you know, no such thing as a yuga. Or *fill in here*

    I think history gives us all of the examples we need of a primitive society encountering a technologically advanced society. Maybe in the end it's all part of some grand cosmic scheme- evolution is painful, right? It's all just speculation, but food for thought is always a tasty dish.

    droidy and friends-
    Just a note on ' Earth Final Conflict'...Awesome, awesome show. At least the first two seasons. Practically everything of value is said in those first two years, in my opinion. Saw them when they originally aired. It was interesting and fun, but I didn't know the things then, which I know now. In retrospect, the show is QUITE SCARY. One of the best things Roddenberry did post Trek. Watch and enjoy.

  12. First of all: thanks for spilling the beans! Most of the blogs that deal in so-called synchromysticism always beat around the bush. It is frustrating.

    However...

    In keeping with my usual skepticism, I'll hold you to the fire :) In the tracing board, for instance, the ladder, to a layman, is obviously the sun; however, if you insist that it represents Sirius, then the Moon to the right is obviously the Pleiades (7 stars or Sisters), near Orion - the moon "occults" it and thus it is often represented together as moon and 7 stars.

    "[H]istorians will tell you quite soberly": According to the source you cite, they are specific that it is "tradition" which says so. Paragraphs 2 and 3 of the page seem to be hinting that there's more going on than scholars are willing to admit, but it is vague as to what they are getting at. Paine wasn't in on a big secret; he was only alluding to the priests of Egypt, mystics, alchemists, magicians. Paine wasn't the only Freemason to revere the ancient wisdom. That is all he speaks of; though with reverence for "Druidism" - a common fad at he time. He also speaks of Zoroaster and the Magi - another popular obsession within the all-important era of 18th-century occult Freemasonry. Try taking a gander at the Egyptian and Hebraic, Masonic occult studies of contemporaries: Illuminati Ignaz von Born (Furius Camillus) and Karl Leonhard Reinhold aka "Brother Decius," for starters. Paine's Freemasonic investigations are amateurish compared to those guys. Even Mozart: his Magic Flute is the be-all-end-all of symbolism. Read M F M Van Den Berk, The Magic Flute: Die Zauberflvte. an Alchemical Allegory; it'll blow your mind.

    "When you read the ancient texts - particularly the Sumerian and Egyptian...": What you mean is, interpreters claiming they have the skills to read such material, have apparently done so, and assert certain things about its contents. An "Acharya S" or a Sitchin do no even qualify. Try someone like Michael Heiser, who has PhDs (that's a plural) in Ancient Semitic languages. "...the gods descended from the heavens, created men and taught them the arts of civilization.": Your link claims only the latter.

    I must admit, your grand speculation, as laid out before us, although appreciated, seems monolithic. I'm sure you're aware. How well do you fare if the Shemsu Hor peg is kicked to the floor and rendered useless? If that were the case, would it be any different than, say, an Eric Jon Phelps ("the Jesuits rule the world") having to forgo the Black Pope?

    No, it's Sirius. If you're thrown off, check out other First Degree Boards, where the Sun and Moon are more clearly drawn. As Pike says the Sun, the Moon are Sirius are venerated.

    I'm referring to the records as kept by Ancient Egyptian historians, admittedly a biased source. But make no mistake, I'm talking about what people believe, not what objectively happened. That's much more important, particularly in these tradtions. Manetho's Aegyptica is one of the sources that we have for the god kings and the Horus Kings. Incidentally, Paine himself wasn't a Freemason.

    "That is all he speaks of; though with reverence for "Druidism" - a common fad at he time. He also speaks of Zoroaster and the Magi - another popular obsession within the all-important era of 18th-century occult Freemasonry.

Read M F M Van Den Berk, The Magic Flute: Die Zauberflvte. an Alchemical Allegory; it'll blow your mind."

    Very cool- thanks for the tips. Paine got his information from Masonic scholars, another not entirely unimpeachable source. But again, the issue is what people believe to be true and how those beliefs guide their actions that's most important here. The Persian links are important because that leads into Mithraism which is probably the single most infuential antecedent to Freemasonry. One can argue that Freemasonry is simply a revival of Mithraism without the ox blood, of course. My belief, though, is that Mithraism is Horus worship with a thin Persian veneer.

    "When you read the ancient texts - particularly the Sumerian and Egyptian...": What you mean is, interpreters claiming they have the skills to read such material, have apparently done so, and assert certain things about its contents.

"...the gods descended from the heavens, created men and taught them the arts of civilization.": Your link claims only the latter."

    Eh, Heiser doesn't impress me at all. The whole idea with the Divine Council and the Giants and all that stuff seems pretty weak to me. I'm not really reading Sitchin all that much either these days.

    But one point: Are you questioning that these ancient religions believed that the gods came from the heavens and created man, yadda yadda? Whether or not it was aliens or whatever is another issue entirely, but the basic cosmology is pretty well known. I didn't link it that heavily because I didn't think it was controversial. Archarya S doesn't do anything with AAT that I've read. She's Astrotheology, this is Astronaut Theology. My favorite researchers are people like Hancock and Bauval, who are not AAT. I just look at all of it and think, "well, who the hell else could it be?"



    "I must admit, your grand speculation, as laid out before us, although appreciated, seems monolithic. I'm sure you're aware. How well do you fare if the Shemsu Hor peg is kicked to the floor and rendered useless? If that were the case, would it be any different than, say, an Eric Jon Phelps ("the Jesuits rule the world") having to forgo the Black Pope?"

    What would be rendered useless? They existed, their work is well known, they've been documented either by name or generically as the priests of Heliopolis. They obviously created a symbolic that continues to this day and in many ways is more prevalent that it has been in 2500 years. Did they still exist? I have no idea. it doesn't matter one way or another. By their own admission they were subservient to someone else. Who that is exactly - and what their nature is- is the big question. What I'm trying to point out here is that when you follow all of the esoteric traditions back it ends up on their doorstep. And when I look at all this symbolism it's amazing how closely it ties into AAT.


    Last- but most certainly not least- It is very, very important not to forget what this site is about. It's about how all of this esoteric religion and symbolism enters into modern culture.

    I usually only pay attention to this stuff when it organizes itself into a coherent narrative that jibes with an identifiable antecedent. I'm long past the point of chasing every symbol, because it's just like any other language- until it coheres into meaningful patterns, its just a bunch of gibberish.

  15. "No, it's Sirius. If you're thrown off"

    I'm referring to this, which was the top graphic of your post when I first looked at it - it has since been moved below the fold, and replaced with another. You had the caption that the ladder was pointing to Sirius, when in fact it appears to be pointing to the Sun; in the middle is (OK) Sirius; but the right is Pleiades which is close to Orion (and should be important to synchromystics for that very fact), and which is often depicted with the moon because it gets "occulted" by it. Those in the degree of Illuminatus Major had regalia necklaces with the symbol: seven stars and crescent moon.

  17. Cheers, Michael. I have better hair, though.

    Terry, I see your confusion now. There seems to be variations here with one tradition leading to the Sun and one leading to Sirius. Let me look into that further.

  18. Terry- I looked further into this and the traditional iconography seems to be the staircase in the center below Sirius. That image you referred to seems to be a corruption? I only found one other image with the Sun and the ladder. I replaced the image you mentioned with a board by Freda Harris, who painted Crowley's Thoth deck.

    Definitely something I will be keeping my eye on. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Here's an interesting page with assorted tracing boards:

  19. Hey Chris - Daniel here,

    You may have heard my series that I have been doing with the guys over at red-ice-

    Incidentally the FACT that i WON your 'gods wear spandex' on the 1st live show and then met Henrik and Fredrik in Liverpool at the 'beyond knowledge' conference - probaby is the main synch that got me together with the guys so.... Thanks indirectly...

    --

    One of the oldest known surviving first degree tracing boards is this one which is owned by Bradford University in the uk.

    http://www.brad.ac.uk/webofhiram/img/Firsttrace.jpg

    It is used in many talks and lectures and is most well known for being included in the book 'The hiram key' and the subsequent research project of Bradford uni called 'The web of Hiram'

    --

    In this original Tracing board - The ladder is leading to sirius as you and many researchers an scholars have noted over the years.

    --

    I hope you get a chance to watch the Alchemical Architecture show We did - I talk about my own Architectural ideas on the first degree TB.... Although I do not go into a full analysis by any means I do think I add another level to it...

    Much love - and keep up the provocative work

    Daniel

  20. Most interesting. Popped over from RI and really enjoyed the post.

    It would be a neat trick, were you say a race of intelligent, people-farming [redacted], to convince the flock that you had left, but would be back.

    Especially if the flock was smart enough to be very dangerous, and needed to be stopped in its developmental tracks every time its technology grew above your technological fences.

    Now, if you were a race of super-aliens that had set up a plan here, and were coming back to assume the throne again - well, same deal. It would seem wise to give us a bit of a demographic and technological, ah, haircut, if you know what I mean, before landing and making yourselves known again.

    All this aside (interesting as hell as it is - those tracing boards are sure neat), I'm still going to say - if you see a U.F.O., it was a)designed in Germany, b)built in Japan, and c) - especially if it crashes - piloted by an American. And if we get to watch a big space war on the teevee soon, it isn't aliens - it's removal of our own old stock. Some of the stuff up there looks like it's from the sixties and seventies, some is probably older. Time to make up a good excuse for all the mystery metals and flashing lights that drift down from our dented old black fleets.

    I find your mention of the phoenix imagery most disturbing also. I've recently been having some odd little visions myself that way. I think you're onto something there.

    Enjoyed your stuff. Thanks for writing it.

  21. You said: "So what's so hard to grasp about politicians in a governmental system created by Freemasons- the SPIRITUAL descendants of a priesthood dedicated to bringing the gods back to Earth- doing the same thing?"

    Seems like someone 'forgot' to 'value' the very fundamental aspects and essences of spirituality -- to waged/standard the better-higher-being-ness culture and/or civilization (alien and so on). What make you think that dirty-liar-corrupted stylized politicians (almost every politicians around the world DO) has anything to do nor connection to the 'higher-better' knowledge, spirituality and/or intelligence especially related to the good/betterment for all mankind?

    If indeed they (Obama, Bush cs) were connected to 'royal' culture-civilization of ancient Egypt? What kind of intelligence, spirituality or divinity which they had have been planned (and set to be expected by mankind) to return to this Planet at this moment? As their assumed descendants (Bush-Obama) had been proved killing more innocents that any other 'races/kind' in this world? (911/Iraqi)?

    Did mankind indeed hunger for certain intellectual-slaved styled 'revelation' for the coming of more 'intelligent-evolved' (simply put: more 'superior-clever' in human terms) being to arrive in order to accelerate Earth destruction, and/or mass murderer/extinction?

    I hope anyone will answer this simple question:

    - WHAT IS SO SPIRITUAL/DIVINE ABOUT BUSH/OBAMA, regardless the arguments that they 'seems to had known' what to do or what will be happened next? (Did the words 'Antichrist' resonate in this room?)

    - If perhaps Akhenaten madness were in fact the source for mislead-MONOTHEISM today, who's to blame for millions innocents children (and they do grow older) taught to accept certain believe from the very beginning, and how to call them back instead leaving them behind...But most importantly whose PARTY/GROUP mostly using/manufacture them (their differences) as beneficial factor to run "DIVIDE AND CONQUER PRINCIPLE?" (Do you REALLY believe that THEY'RE the REAL "Evolved-Spiritual" Ancient Egyptian descendants?)

    The article is good, but it's missing this one crucial point: who these "gods" or "aliens" really are. Only by reading the Bible and the Book of Enoch can one really understand the Truth. Please, please read these invaluable resources while there's still time!

    Peace!

  25. "Born- keep watching, and keep that spiritual seatbelt fastened..."

    Cheers man...thanks

    Interesting perspective to review different angle (keep everything open minded) of any intelligent person/group/party who seems to know and wrote so much (might also refer to: steal) about the story/scenario of the past/ancient:

    "History is being written by the winner, which consequently led society to behave (have certain perspective about reality) in accord with certain 'historical' data being given, thus enabling the same party to wrote a continued version so called 'mankind history' based upon society/cultural behavior (dramas) which consciously/unconsciously had been directed/hypnotized by the perspective of the previous inserted/injected 'historical record' (in old times we use to call it as being put under the spell or mantra - recent time we call it quantum physic)......--so one shouldn't be surprised when there were many (unbelievable/extraordinary/amazing/un-explain) aspects/things/existences/values/phenomenons that has never been written, known, understood and/or had completely lost/shattered/disintegrated from human knowledge/perception/understanding....since human behavior has (surely) ever been mislead/misguided and/or directed by any version of earlier 'historical record' (mantras) put in place by their conqueror/director..." -- From there one should understand the great advantages to be able to burning books or/and libraries in masses...(>> for those who happen to read 'history'.)*

    * Since (for sure) the connection to the ancients can also be made (put/injected in between/place) in any 'dreamed' version and purpose (bloodline, organization 'history-symbolism-principality' for example?) by the only one/groups/party who still hold/posses the 'seemingly' missing keys/stories/secrets/timeline of humanity...**

    "In the future, one perhaps understand the wisdom of past generation who do not wrote so much about themselves (trapped in narcissism<< Therefore perhaps God/nature/higher aspects were useful to define the 'Real Beauty' of being-ness (instead of history))."

    **For those who accused me of being judgmental/ridicule, please ask yourself/mankind where and at what position those who had burns/destroy almost all ancient manuscripts today?

    - "History is a 'mantra' for perspective.."

  26. Hi Chris,
    Good post here, but so much feels like its reaching a tad; but I guess that is the thrust of your subject.
    Elite occultists reaching to invoke the gods of old through many means.
    I must admit that I'm heavily sceptical these days of ancient astronaut theories and said being's tampering with human DNA, but it seems that there is definite readiness in the collective psyche to believe in it. Far more than any other "alternative" mythos I have encountered.
    There is such a blatant usage of esoteric symbolism by the media/propaganda machines that it may indeed point to it being a huge semiotic beacon for something from the great black beyond, the hidden realms, the places only appreciated by the supersensible lobes, etc, but I'm reserving yea or nay for a later date. I've been buffeted by the fantastical speculations of too many "alternative researchers" recently and I'm sitting resolutely (and mosty uncomfortably) on the fence for the time being, while watching the whole show with great interest.
    I'm looking forward to the John the Baptist e-book by the way.
    Also, you have said that you have been working really hard lately, so, on what? Are you illustrating any comics right now?
    If so, what titles? Or is it other media you're involved with now?

  27. Justin,

    I've been at this an awful long time and am under no illusions that my observations may take a while to sink in. Hell, I'm still trying to process all of this myself. I'll just keep plodding away in my unglamorous little way and people can decide for themselves.

    I like that you mentioned a beacon- read Barack's speeches. He uses that symbol a lot.

    And I'm brewing up all sorts of goodies to share with the world. Watch this space.

    Jesus: "The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear."

    Fight sin. Love all and forgive, be humble and unmaterialistic.

    Very interesting. The Egyptian connection goes deeper.
    Obama's dad is from the Luo tribe of Kenya, who are a Nilotic pastoral people, that is they originated in the Nile region in ancient times.
    So it looks like he could well have ancient Egyptian lineage. So maybe America just got itself a real life modern day pharoah folks!

  31. Medieval good Christians, known in history as the 'Cathars' did not have a tradition or practice of oaths, blood or otherwise. In fact, the rejection of oaths was a major tenet of the movement.

    The good people who died in the flames of Romanist Inquisition did so not to preserve secrets, but to preserve principles.

    Thank you for your time.

    Cathars to the Templars to the Freemasons and beyond, we see a tradition sealed by blood oaths, a very ancient tradition of people willing to die to keep their sects secrets.

    THE SIGN OF THE FISH AND THE FISH-GOD FROM SIRIUS

    http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/cienciareal/men_in_black.htm#12_-_THE_SIGN_OF_THE_FISH_AND_THE_FISH-GOD_FROM_SIRIUS

    [quote]THE Vesica Piscis is, at once, a sign of Divinity and a sign of “Amphibiousness”. This suggests an early origin associated with the great Initiator, the Fish God from Sirius, known as John or Oannes.
    If we examine the legend of John the Baptist, patron saint of Freemasonry, what do we find? A semi divine teacher, associated with the prophet Elijah (Matthew 11:14, 16:14, 17:12; Mark 6:15, 8:18; Luke 9:19) who ascended alive into heaven in a chariot of fire before many witnesses (2Kings 2:1-14), John stands half immersed in the water, baptizing others into Wisdom by immersing them.
    This apparently is an echo of that more remote John, Oannes, the Sumerian-Babylonian half-fish, half man who taught humanity by day, but returned to the waters by night. The only surviving cult of John the Baptist, the Mandeans, live in modern-day Iraq, the former Babylonian and Sumerian Empire.[/quote]

    The Iraqi Mandaean Conspiracy
    http://www.vu.union.edu/~coulombj/Articles/911/Dov%20Zakheim%20and%20the%20911%20Conspiracy/index.html

    [quote]In southern Iraq, an orthodox purity cult sect called the Mandaeans live much as they have for the last 2,000 years. They are apparently an offshoot of a group that followed an earlier Christian teaching in the tradition of John the Baptist, or possibly the Essenes - one of many groups of the era that broke away from mainstream religion for various reasons, usually because of a belief that the mainstream religious establishment had 'sold out,' or became too worldly or preoccupied with wealth and power. It has been determined by researchers that the Mandaeans of southern Iraq are in fact the Nasoreans, who were driven from Judah circa 37AD (1)[/quote]

  38. It's important to know that "priest" is a deliberate mistranslation and misrepresentation when talking about Ancient Egypt.

    "Temple" is a mistranslation of "scribe house" or "recordkeeping place" and "priest" is a deliberate deception rather than the accurate translation "scribe".

    There were no priesthoods during the very ancient times. Scribes recorded facts, couldn't be less like the popular conception of a priesthood.
