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.
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
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...
PHILAEDELPHIAThe 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).
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?

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?
