The manuscript that appears to bear the sci-fi character’s image is also known as the ‘Decretals of Gregory IX with gloss of Bernard of Parma’ and was painstakingly written and illustrated in France between 1300 and 1340.

The biblical character, or ‘Yoda’ made his appearance in a collection of papal letters and church decrees in the precious volume, which can be viewed in its entirety online. See it here. It bears more than a little resemblance to Yoda from the Star Wars films, but is in fact a part of a strange representation of the Biblical story of Samson.
The name “Samson” is derived from the Hebrew word šemeš, which means “Sun”, so that Samson bore the name of God, who is called “a Sun and Shield” in Psalms 84:11

 

 

Samson (/ˈsæmsən/; שִׁמְשׁוֹן‬, Shimshon, “man of the sun”) was the last of the judges of the ancient Israelites mentioned in the Book of Judges in the Hebrew Bible (chapters 13 to 16) and one of the last of the leaders who “judged” Israel before the institution of the monarchy. He is sometimes considered to be an Israelite version of the popular Near Eastern folk hero also embodied by the Sumerian Enkidu and the Greek Heracles.

 

The biblical account states that Samson was a Nazirite, and that he was given immense strength to aid him against his enemies and allow him to perform superhuman feats, including slaying a lion with his bare hands and massacring an entire army of Philistines using only the jawbone of a donkey. However, if Samson’s long hair was cut, then his Nazirite vow would be violated and he would lose his strength.

 

Samson was betrayed by his lover Delilah, who ordered a servant to cut his hair while he was sleeping and turned him over to his Philistine enemies, who gouged out his eyes and forced him to grind grain in a mill at Gaza. When the Philistines took Samson into their temple of Dagon, Samson asked to rest against one of the support pillars; after being granted permission, he prayed to God and miraculously recovered his strength, allowing him to grasp hold of the columns and tear them down, killing himself and all the Philistines with him. In some Jewish traditions, Samson is believed to have been buried in Tel Tzora in Israel overlooking the Sorek valley.

 

Going back to the manuscript, it also includes an image of a rabbit shooting a leaping dog with a bow and arrow. Whats curious about this is it`s allegorical meaning, symbolism, and presence in mythology and astrology in relation to Orion and Sirius.

 

One of the more obscure constellations visible to Northern Hemisphere stargazers during winter months is known as Lepus, the hare. Look for this tiny star grouping just below brilliant Orion, the hunter, and just west of the sparkling “dog star” Sirius. Several cultures also associated the star with a bow and arrows. The ancient Chinese visualized a large bow and arrow across the southern sky, formed by the constellations of Puppis and Canis Major. In this, the arrow tip is pointed at the wolf Sirius. A similar association is depicted at the Temple of Hathor in Dendera, where the goddess Satet has drawn her arrow at Hathor (Sirius). Known as “Tir”, the star was portrayed as the arrow itself in later Persian culture.

There are also Striking similarities btwn Yoda and Hathor:

 

 

 

“Luke: I’m looking for a great warrior. Yoda: Oh, great warrior. Wars not make one great. To understand Yoda, it’s equally important to understand his antithesis Darth Vader. Specifically, how they both use language. Although they are fictional characters in a surreal sci-fi world dreamt up by the unbridled imagination of its creator, George Lucas, the way these two characters use language provides a legitimate and brilliant perspective on how grammar can impact cognition and as a result self-image. Take Darth Vader, he acts as commander in chief of the Imperial army, the backbone of a Sith ruled dictatorship. His position in the Imperial Army acts as a perfect representation of a broken man`s insatiable hunger for power. Instead of using the Force to spread egalitarian ideals, he uses it to gain control. He tempts his son Luke into joining his quest for world domination with a seductive description of the dark side, and the alluring promises of the unknown. “Darth Vader: If you only knew the power of the dark side.” This famous line from The Empire Strikes Back is a good example to show the fundamental difference between the grammar and psyche of darth vader and yoda.

 

 

If you only knew is an optative construction. There’s the present counterfactual clause if, the particle only, with the past tense verb knew. The present counterfactual optative construction ‘if you only” in combination with the past tense verb “knew” expresses a condition in the subjunctive mood. Optative constructions in the optative mood indicate a wish or hope, while the subjunctive expresses a state of being or act that is either distantly possible, contingent on certain conditions, or totally hypothetical. There’s no arguing that the overall tone of this grammatical construct is seductive and enticing. This contrasts greatly with Yoda who uses broken English that avoids grammatical moods expressing fantasy or desire. “Luke: All right I’ll give it a try. Yoda: No. try not. Do or do not. There is no try.” Do or do not is a blunt command in the imperative mood.

 

The imperative is a mood in verb form that makes a command or request. The verb try in there is no try is expressed in the indicative mood. A verb in the indicative mood is used to make a straightforward statement expressing certainty and actuality. Both the indicative and the imperatives act as dramatical constructs based in reality, opposed to the subjunctive which describes fantasies and unreal situations. The Jedi are people of action who don’t dwell on fear or potential outcomes. “Luke: I don’t believe it. Yoda: That is why you fail.” Where the sith draw much of their power from fear and hypotheticals-which explains one of the reasons Anakin Skywalker turned to the dark side in the first place.

 

His fear of losing those he loved and their inevitable deaths. “Yoda: Afraid to lose her I think mm-hmm. Anakin: What does that got to do with anything. Yoda: Everything! Fear is a path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering.” So when the going gets tough take advice from Yoda. Don’t think about failure and what ifs. Instead, take action and embrace the raw veracity of the indicative..
“I am ready! I can be a Jedi! “Ben tell him I’m ready” These days many thousands of people claim they’re converting to Jediism as their real-life religion. But before we had Jedi Churches, George Lucas created the idea of the Force to speak about what spirituality and faith really are, when they’re taken out of the structure of organized religion. “I put the Force into the movies in order to try to awaken a certain kind of spirituality in young people. More a belief in God, than a belief in any particular religious system.” “Star Wars” strips away cultural context to get at something universal about spirituality. Instead of using words like good and evil, we can talk about the Light and Dark Sides of the Force.

 

“I see ‘Star Wars’ as taking all of the issues that religion represents and trying to distill them down into a more modern and more easily accessible construct that people can grab onto to accept the fact that there is a greater mystery out there.” So what are some of the spiritual lessons “Star Wars” preaches about how we might live our lives a little more like the wise master Yoda? “When 900 years old, you reach…Look as good, you will not.” Many of us forget to ask the simple but important question of what faith really is. Not the question of whether we believe a particular religious event or figure.

 

But on the deepest level, what does it mean to have faith, and what is it we’re really believing in? “The Force is what gives the Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us. It penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.” In “Star Wars,” having faith is being Force-sensitive , feeling a big, wise, powerful cosmic presence within us and listening to its mysterious spiritual language. Most religions tend to call this Force God. Even the iconic “May the Force Be With you” stands in for the parting phrase, “May God Be With You.” But it can also be likened to a voice inside us. Think of a voice inside Moana that drives her to the ocean. “But the voice inside sings a different song / What is wrong with me?” In “Star Wars,” the “voice” inside is often projected in a vision of someone we’ve loved and lost. “You will go to the Dagobah system.” So our direction comes to us through an inner compass, at the times when we feel most lost. It’s notable that the inner voice of the Force doesn’t make things easy for us.

 

It often points us toward what we really don’t want to do, or what we fear the most. “I can’t do it.” “You cannot escape your destiny.” Our inner guide pushes us to confront the hard battles in life. In everyday practice, this means that if we’re scared of or avoiding something, that’s a sign that we should do that thing. “You must confront Vader. Then, only then, a Jedi will you be.” The thinking and judging ego in us is loud and thinks it’s very smart.
But the voice of the Force is quiet and slow. To practice faith is to learn humility, to trust in the wisdom of the cosmos, not doubting and arguing with it, and stop assuming our striving, clever minds always know better. “I’m a Jedi. I know I’m better than this.” One surprising spiritual lesson in “Star Wars” is that “feeling” intensely isn’t necessarily the path to being good. We should be distrustful of our sudden, strong emotions, they can be dangerous and lead us the wrong way, to the Dark Side. Instead, we should learn to practice emptiness. Zen and Taoist thought emphasize the wisdom of emptying ourselves. Take this passage from the “Tao Te Ching:” “Mold clay into a bowl.” The empty space makes it useful. Cut out doors and windows for the house. The holes make it useful. Therefore, the value comes from what is there, but the use comes from what is not there.” We often tend to think that a happy life is about fullness and feeling passionately.”

 

But in “Star Wars,” it’s the Dark Side that’s about fullness and emotion. “Much anger in him like his father.” If we let our emotions take control, the negative ones, fear, anger and hatred actually emerge stronger at first. “Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow.” Luke falls for Darth Vader’s trap when he gives in to his emotions. That doesn’t mean the Light Side doesn’t consist of feeling, as we can see Luke cares more for his friends than anything. But this Light Side feeling is quieter and subtler, and ultimately it’s realer and more long-lasting than stormy, dramatic emotion. When we become detached sometimes we have the insight that the best thing to do isn’t always what our emotions immediately want us to do. “If you choose the quick and easy path, as Vader did, you become an agent of darkness.” “Patience and sacrifice.” The weak mind is clouded by emotions, busy with distractions and shaped by common assumptions.

 

 

And that’s why the Jedi mind tricks can manipulate it. “The force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded.” But the Jedi mind has emptied itself of all of those things, and so it sees clearly “How am I to know the good side from the bad?” “You will know when you are calm at peace.” We all remember one of the most iconic lessons Yoda teaches Luke Skywalker: “Try not. Do or do not. There is no try.” Having faith lets us do what seems impossible, both physically and mentally. Harnessing the Force can even allow you to break the laws of physics as we know them. According to Yoda, if we throw out our assumptions of possible and impossible, we’re capable of miracles.
What’s really standing in our way is our own mind telling us what can’t be done. “We’ll never get it out.” “Always with you what cannot be done.” In our daily lives the things we think we can’t do are probably a lot less daunting than pulling a spaceship out of a swamp with our minds. But we’ve been conditioned to doubt, to see unlikelihood. “You must unlearn what you have learned.” So we have to remove our self-imposed limitations to unlock the power we’re truly capable of. “I don’t believe it.” “That is why you fail.” One fundamental lesson of the Force is that everything is connected. “You must feel the force around you. Between you, me, the rock, everywhere.” But we get so hung up on our personal cares that we forget this. It can feel like all that matters is me. People even feel so disconnected from each other they become capable of mass murder.

 

But if like the Jedi we believe in the interconnection of all things and beings, we know that by destroying any other life, we’re killing part of ourselves. The ego is dangerous because it seduces us into thinking we’re responsible for our own power and success, when really our strength is channeling something greater than us. “Remember. A Jedi’s strength flows from the Force.” The more powerful we are, the more tempting it is to use our power for our personal gain or glory. Yet “Star Wars” teaches that serving the ego will make us unhappy.

 

“Is the dark side stronger?” No! The only thing that will make us happy is staying close to the Force, which means remembering the bonds between all things and creatures. The most comforting thing about believing we’re all linked through the Force is that if this is true, we don’t need to fear anything that can come to us, not even death, because the most important thing wouldn’t die. “The Force is with me, and I am with the Force. And I fear nothing. All is as the Force wills it.” None of the Jedi in “Star Wars” ever really go away. Luke can still talk to the deceased, Obi-Wan or Yoda, and even to Anakin once he returns to the Light Side. Droids can’t sense the Force but every naturally created thing has a connection to it. “Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter.” One of the deep symbolism`s of the Force is there’s something sacred within us and within nature, something mysterious about life itself, that can’t be replicated by our clever machines.

 

When we focus too much on our grand technology, we lose sight of the ultimate mysteries of nature and life which we should respect. “Get out of this slimy mudhole.” “Mudhole? Slimy? My home this is.” There’s a reason Yoda’s planet is only nature. I’m not picking up any cities or technology. Massive life forms readings though. There’s something alive down there. Interestingly, those on the Dark Side also revere the natural, sacred power of the Force. “I find your lack of faith disturbing.” Darth Vader himself warns that our technology is no match for the Force. “Don’t be too proud of this technological terror you’ve constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.” Still, Vader has tried to make himself into an impenetrable machine, and he’s given too much of himself to the machine. When we glimpse the man under the mask, we see that the human in him is frail, unable to live without the technology. One of the reasons that Yoda doesn’t want to train Luke at first is because Luke is bad at being present in the moment.

 

“All his life has he looked away to the future, to the horizon, never his mind on where he was, what he was doing.” We spend a lot of our time dwelling in the past, in anger, and regret, and thinking about the future, due to anticipation and ambition, our fears and anxiety. “Always emotions is the future.” The Jedi learns to discipline his wandering mind. Self-Control. “You must learn control.” which means not letting his thoughts carry him away with their own agenda. “Clear your mind of questions.” Being close to the Force lets the Jedi see deeply into reality, even far beyond what’s in front of our eyes. “Through the Force, things you will see other places.” This teaches us that if we’re unbiased by our own egos and desires, we see the truth clearly. And the Jedi trusts in the truth. Meanwhile, the Dark Side is more about building grandiose success through lies. But the story shows us while deception can be successful for a very long time, lying only works for so long.

 

So if we want to be more like Jedi, we should think of the truth as our friend and try to stay close it, just as Yoda always stays close to the Force. When he first meets Yoda, Luke can’t see that this is the great Jedi master he seeks “I’m looking for a great warrior.” Luke is expecting someone impressive and grand, maybe someone like Darth Vader. But Yoda is small, silly and unassuming — this is what wisdom really looks like. “Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you?” Society teaches us to respect what is large, wealthy, technologically advanced. But Yoda is none of these things. It’s as if tiny Yoda is almost nothing else besides closeness to the Force. His life is so simple because he has eliminated all the clutter that would separate him from the Force. So again we see in this belief system how emptiness and not having loads of stuff getting in our way can be a source of power. “For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is.” So to sum up, if we want to take a leaf out of Yoda’s forest, we can listen to the Force speaking within us, practice emptiness, do what we think is impossible, know everything is connected, respect nature, stay in the now, trust in the truth, and never underestimate the small in stature.

October-December 1998

 

When studying the question of possible ancient visits of alien beings to the Earth, a researcher sometimes encounters data which cannot be interpreted as yet in a strictly scientific manner, but which, at the same time, are interesting enough to be regarded seriously and unbiasedly. Such data can be found, in particular, in the well-known “mythological astronomy” of the Dogon, an African people, living mainly in the West African Republic of Mali.

The Dogon believe that the Universe is “infinite, but measurable” and is filled with “spiral stellar worlds” (yalu ulo), one of which contains the Sun. This world may be seen in the sky as the Milky Way. The majority of heavenly bodies represent the “external” star system, whose influence on terrestrial life is, according to the Dogon, relatively small.

There exists, however, also the “internal” system, which “participates directly in the life and development of men on the Earth”. It includes Orion, Sirius, Pleiades and some other stars. These celestial bodies form the “support of the seat of the world”. It is Sirius that occupies the main position among them, being called the “navel of the world”.

Sirius is considered by the Dogon as a triple stellar system, consisting of the stars Sigi tolo (our Sirius A), Po tolo (Sirius B, a white dwarf) and Emme ya tolo (the hypothetical Sirius C, yet to be discovered).

Close similarity between the characteristics of Po tolo and Sirius B (both bodies are white, small, very heavy, with fifty-year periods of revolution around the main star) stimulated a lively discussion on the pages of scientific — and not so scientific — journals about 20 years ago. Robert Temple, in his book “The Sirius Mystery” [1], and Eric Guerrier in his “Essai sur La Cosmogonie des Dogon” [2] supposed that these data (as well as other astronomical information possessed by the Dogon) were brought to the Earth by cosmic visitors.

However, their reasons could not break through the “armour of denial” of established science. The hypothesis of a recent adoption of this knowledge from Europeans appeared convincing for most scientists.

It is natural that other components of the Dogon mythology, which have little in common with modern scientific knowledge, attracted even less scholarly interest. Yes, this is a real mythology, almost pure and not very simple. To analyze its content is not an easy task, and the results are not self-evident. Nonetheless, it is possible that we can derive from such an analysis some important information. Let us recall very briefly the main points of this mythology.

The supreme god Amma made the whole Universe within a grain of po, which is the Dogon name for fonio, the smallest kind of millet. This grain was located inside the “egg of the world”, it “spun and scattered the particles of matter in a sonorous and luminous motion”, remaining, however, “inaudible and invisible” [3, p. l30]. Having opened this ‘egg’, Amma let the spiral stellar worlds out, and it was thus that the Universe was realized. Then the god created the first living being — Nommo anagonno.

This being is described either as a half-man, half-snake having flexible limbs, without any joints, red eyes and forked tongue, or just as a fish, namely a Silurus, sheat-fish, or cat-fish. This Nommo multiplied, and there appeared four Nommos: Nommo die, Nommo titiyayne, O Nommo and, at last, Ogo, a very harmful creature.

As distinct from other Nommos, he is never represented as a fish. Instead of awaiting patiently the completion of the Amma’s work, he hurriedly made an “ark” and rushed into space, wishing “to look at the world”. Thus, he took disorder into the young world. After several voyages, Ogo landed on the Earth and turned into the pale fox or fennec, named Yurugu.

Made indignant by Ogo’s escapades, Amma took everything he had created and put it back into the grain of po. To “purify” the Universe, he had to sacrifice one of the Nommos. After that “by whirling and … acting as a spring, the po … distributed all things in the Universe” [3, p. 423]. The empty shell of the grain became the star Po. In “the first year of the life of man on Earth” this star exploded, and its brightness decreased slowly during 240 years until it completely faded.

It is interesting that there is in the Dogon mythology another image of the Sirius system. According to it, the main star represents the Ogo’s female twin, Yasigui, whom he chased with some dubious intentions. One of its satellites is Ogo himself, doomed to revolve eternally around his sister, remaining at a respectful distance from her.

Of course, this is only an outline of this very complicated genesis story. I am citing it here just as the basis for further considerations. Can this story be useful for paleovisitological studies?

Some time ago the present author suggested the idea of astroengineering interference by a cosmic supercivilization in the evolution of the Sirius system. This assumption was based on the Indo-European myth of the heavenly blacksmiths, who are fighting and chaining up the monstrous Dog, dangerous for the Universe, as well as on some astrophysical data from the history of Sirius (see: [4]).

It is known in astronomy that a white dwarf arises from a red giant as this loses its mass. This process is usually accompanied by a slow ejection of a planetary nebula which eventually dissipates into space. But sometimes the remaining core of the red giant can retain a mass exceeding the so-called Chandrasekhar limit (about 1.3 Sun masses). This leads inevitably to disastrous self-compression of the core and its explosion as a Supernova. As a result, powerful streams of matter and radiation are ejected into the surrounding space.

If such an event had ever happened in the Sirius system, at a small (on the cosmic scale) distance from the Solar system, it might have been fatal for the terrestrial biosphere. My idea was that some highly developed supercivilization could have tried to remove the excess of stellar matter from Sirius B, thus saving life and civilization on Earth.

Really, the only thing we know for sure about the evolution of the Sirius system is the fact that Sirius B was once a red giant whose mass exceeded that of Sirius A (that’s why the former evolved more rapidly). The initial orbit of Sirius B was, most likely, circular; now it is a highly elongated ellipse. This suggests that the mass loss was accompanied by some considerable disturbances. Some part of the “lost” matter probably contaminated the atmosphere of Sirius A (see: [5]). But the real course of events is still very unclear. The situation will seem even more in-volved if we bear in mind the possible presence of the second satellite in this system, as is asserted by the Dogon and confirmed by recent astrophysical data (see: [6]).

It would be certainly very helpful to study thoroughly the Sirius system with modern astronomical equipment (say, by radio interferometers with a very long baseline). But it appears that relevant (and rather interesting) information can also be found in those vestiges of the great mythologies of Europe, Asia and Africa which have survived till now, however odd and strange they may appear to us.

This information cannot be taken at face value, for the myth is a very special form of thinking and knowledge, much different from our modern mentality. We should carefully analyze and interpret mythological stories and characters to understand their profound sense and real significance. There are on this road many pitfalls and false turnings, but there may also be found some road-signs and important hints. Let us go through some of them.

It is well known that the most common (though not the only) name for Sirius in the ancient world was “The Dog” (with the variants: the wolf, the fox, the jackal). The ancient Egyptians called it, in particular, the Starry Dog and identified the star with Anubis, the jackal or dog-headed god of the dead. The North American Indian Cherokee tribe believed that this Dog awaited the souls of the dead on the Milky Way; the Blackfeet Indians named the star “Dog-face”. The oldest Hindu name for Sirius was Sarama, “one of the Twin Watch-dogs of the Milky Way” [7, p. 119].

The Chinese knew this star as the Heavenly Wolf, and the Greeks as the Dog of Orion, or more specifically, as the dog Orthrus, a son of the monster Typhon. The Romans saw in it the Southern Cerberus, a watch-dog of their hell. As for the fennec Ogo, it is the smallest wild animal in the dog family (which hints probably at the small size of Sirius B).

What is more, Sirius represented not a decent house dog, but a terrible beast, monstrous and dangerous for everyone. It was related to death, hell and disaster. Orphrus’ father Typhon was identified with the Egyptian evil god Seth (who, incidentally, was sometimes portrayed as a dog-headed creature) and was regarded as one of the monstrous adversaries of Zeus. The latter fought with Typhon and defeated him with much difficulty. Finally, Ogo himself is, as we know, a very harmful character in the Dogon mythology.

The worship of a dangerous dog was widespread in the ancient world, and this is rather strange: the dog was in fact the “first friend” of ancient man and played a very important part in his everyday life. Nonetheless, the fact remains: dogs (as well as wolves and jackals, which seems much more natural) were regarded as chthonian animals, guardians of the underworld. The “Inmost Story” of the Mongols contains a motif of monstrous metal dogs who feed on human flesh. The terrible dog Yarchuk, from Slavic mythology, had a wolf tooth in his mouth and two vipers under his lower lip. According to a Russian belief, a Solar eclipse happens when the heavenly wolf swallows the Sun (this idea was not unfamiliar to many other peoples).

The Ukrainians believed that Ursa Major was a team of horses with harness; “every night a black dog tries to bite through the harness, in order to destroy the world, but he does not achieve his disastrous aim: at dawn, when he runs to drink from a spring, the harness renews itself” [8, p. 168]. Another version of this story states that a dog was chained beside Ursa Minor; he tries in every way to gnaw through his iron chain, and when this happens, the world will perish.

According to the famous ancient Greek philosopher Proclus, who lived in the 5th century A.D., “the fox star nibbles continuously at the thong of the yoke which holds together heaven and Earth”; the Germans added that “when the fox succeeds, the world will come to its end” [9, p.385]. One can find some interesting details of this future event in the Nordic mythology. It has been called “Ragnaroek”, and the wolf Fenrir, together with the great dog Garm, play leading parts in it. Having snapped his fetters (which, incidentally, were made of nothing), Fenrir will devour the Sun and the supreme god Odin.

These fetters are of much importance for our subject. As was ascertained by the Russian philologist Dr. Vyacheslav Ivanov, the motif of the fight against the dragon in Slavic mythology grew out of an older motif of the hero-blacksmiths, chaining up a terrible dog. What is still more essential, “over the whole territory of Eurasia, this mythological complex is associated both with the Great Bear …, with a star near it as a dog which is dangerous for the Universe, and also with blacksmiths …” [10, p. 210]. One should remember that, although Sirius is far from this constellation in the firmament, it belongs to the same star-cluster.

Now, let us pay some attention to other Sirius names. There exists in mythology some kind of “principle of complementarity”: you can describe a complex phenomenon, using a set of quite different, even incompatible, images. Thus, the first satellite of Sirius is at the same time an empty husk of a millet grain, and the Pale Fox himself. Just as much, Sirius may have been represented as the Dog, the Arrow, the Triangle, as well as in many other ways. This star was either the tip of the arrow (in Mesopotamia and Persia), or its target (in China, as well as in Ancient Egypt).

The Chinese mythical emperor Huang-ti was both a smith and an archer; on an ancient picture he aims at the celestial jackal, located beside another star, which represent, probably, the A and B components of this system [9, ill. between pp. 216 and 217]. I would like to recall in this connection the hypothesis of the Russian scholar Dr. Igor Lissievich about possible paleovisits at the early stages of China’s history. Huang-ti was the main character of these hypothetical events (see: [11]).

The Iranian mythology personified Sirius as Tishtryathe divine archer (the corresponding character in the Vedic myths was Tishya). The name “Tishtrya” goes back to the Sanskrit term “three stars” and to an older Indo-European one of the same meaning. Some scholars prefer to see here a designation of the Belt of Orion, but it seems to be just an ad hoc conjecture. On the other hand, the name “three stars” is quite justified in terms of the Dogon concept of this stellar system. There is, by the way, a direct relationship between the word “Tishtrya” and the name of the hellish dog Cerberus.

Thus, there are in various parts of the world some traces of an ancient — and rather clear — concept of Sirius as a dangerous stellar system, consisting of three stars. Its transformation has been described, first, as the transition from Typhon (a fiery monster in rage, that is a red giant before its change into a Supernova) to Orphrus (a dangerous but suppressed beast, that is the core of the red giant in the process of its “calm” turning into a white dwarf). Second, the Dog is usually chained up by sacred blacksmiths, which can be interpreted as a description of astroengineering activity by a supercivilization.

Nommos are also considered as heavenly blacksmiths, but they do not chain up the Fox; they simply circumcise him. This rather unexpected metaphor expresses very clearly the main point: it was necessary to remove the excess of stellar matter from Sirius B. The 240 years of increased brightness of the star looks like a slow explosion of this “cosmic bomb”.

When did all this happen? Astrophysical data suggest that the lifetime of Sirius B as a white dwarf has been 30 to 100 million years. However, some classical authors, such as Ptolemy and Seneca, described Sirius as red, which is very different from its present white-bluish appearance. For instance, Seneca wrote:

“… The redness of the Dog star is deeper, that of Mars milder, that of Jupiter nothing at all.”

This enigma has been discussed by astronomers since the 18th century up to now, and it remains still unsolved. It is astrophysically very unlikely that Sirius B could have been a red giant as recently as 2000 years ago; but we cannot rule out entirely the possibility of lasting astroengineering works in this system. In any case, attempts to explain the red color of Sirius by some atmospheric causes are not very convincing. There is some evidence that the epithet “red” was not unusual for Sirius in the past. Thus, Tistrya was called “aurusha”, what can be translated either as “white”, or as “red”.

In Egyptian hieroglyphic writing, Sirius was depicted as a red triangle with a small semicircle and a five-pointed star near it (see Ref. 12). The Babylonians referenced to the star as “shining like copper”. Finally, the Dogon represent Po tolo by a red stone (let us note it is precisely Po tolo, not Sigi tolo or Emme ya tolo, which is represented in such a way!).

In a recent work [13] R. Ceragioli has made an attempt to solve the riddle of Sirius’ redness in the context of classical philology: the color red was in antiquity a token of danger. The most typical cultural pattern for Sirius connected it with fire, fever, rage, bloodshed, heat and other perils; that is why it may have been called red even in spite of evidence.

It is questionable, however, if Ptolemy and Seneca were so much devoted to the cultural tradition that they did not trust their own eyes and took a color of Sirius’ scintillations for the intrinsic color of the star. It seems more appropriate to assume that they did in fact see Sirius as red, even though this can have been just a temporary reddening related to some physical (or astroengineering?) processes in this stellar system (cf. [14]).

What is even more important, the solution suggested by R. Ceragioli does not provide the answer to the main question: why the ancients attached so great “negative” importance to Sirius? Egyptian priests watched this star closely at its heliacal risings, believing that its bright and white color presaged abundance, and its redness betokened war. The inhabitants of the Greek island of Ceos, when expecting Sirius’ rising “prayed for the north winds to cool the ‘Dog’s’ heat, which in their myths had once threatened to burn the world” [13, p. 615].

All that fits well with the “astroengineering hypothesis”, raising at the same time some doubts: was “the cosmic bomb” discharged completely? Let us remember that the myth of the Dogon tells us that the blacksmiths only chained up the Dog, but it does not mean they rendered it quite harmless.

Therefore, we can suppose that alien astroengineering activities inside the Sirius system were finished only recently (if at all). Yet, they could have started in a much earlier epoch, even a few millions of years ago. However strange this may sound, we have another evidence of a fantastically deep historical memory of the Dogon: they know quite well that the Lake Bosumtwi in Ghana was formed when a giant meteorite fell on the Earth [2, p. 1961]. According to the results of a special investigation, this infall happened not later than 1.3, or even 1.6, million years ago.

It is rather doubtful that somebody, living then on our planet (it was the epoch of Homo habilis and maybe of the early Pithecanthropus), could have retained this information and conveyed it to the future Homo sapiens. This knowledge may also be of paleovisit origin. Of course, we should not understand the Dogon mention of the “first year of the life of man on Earth”, when, as they believe, Sirius B exploded, too literally, but it would be a mistake to reject these data a priori.

Now, what can we conclude from all that has been said above? The astro-engineering hypothesis seems to be worthy of further investigation. It can hardly be proved just on the basis of mythological studies, but such studies can lead us to a preliminary outline of those distant (in time, as well as in space) events. Mythology may be regarded as a special language, which has preserved for us fragmentary data from the dawn of the world. I mean here by the “world” not only the Earth, but rather all our region of the cosmos which has been called by the Dogon the “internal system of the stars”.

Events, that once took place in various parts of this region, were “projected” onto the firmament with its visible luminaries, becoming subsequently the subjects of mythological stories. These stories have interacted and become partly confused, so that it is now almost impossible to go this way back and reach the initial point. It only remains to rely on human imagination as another instrument of knowledge.

At the same time, we should be very careful when trying to prove our assumptions. Usually they are more temporary tools than faithful models of reality. Thus, the concept of paleovisits as arrivals of extraterrestrial starships whose crews taught our ancestors to the fundamentals of civilized life and science, may prove to be uncritical adoption from science fiction stories, whereas the real situation was much more complicated.

There can have been some events in the history of the “internal star system”, which we can neither understand as yet, nor even assume. There are, for example, in the Dogon mythology some hints at the multidimensional structure of the Universe.

Moreover, Nommos seem to be not a “simple” supercivilization whose origin is similar to that of our civilization, only the level of development being much higher, but rather an independent branch of evolution of cosmic intelligent beings, very different from such planetary offspring as we humans are. It is very important to go from questions to reliable facts and convincing answers, but it may be still more important to go from answers to new questions.

An ancient Hopi Indian prophecy states, “When the Blue Star Kachina makes its appearance in the heavens, the Fifth World will emerge”. This will be the Day of Purification. The Hopi name for the star Sirius is Blue Star Kachina. It will come when the Saquasohuh (Blue Star) Kachina dances in the plaza and removes its mask.

It was told to me that first the Blue Kachina would start to be seen at the dances, and would make his appearance known to the children in the plaza during the night dance. This event would tell us that the end times are very near. Then the Blue Star Kachina would physically appear in our heavens which would mean that we were in the end times.

In the Final days we will look up in our heavens and we will witness the return of the two brothers who helped create this world in the birthing time. Poganghoya is the guardian of our North Pole and his Brother Palongawhoya is the guardian of the South pole. In the final days the Blue Star Katchina will come to be with his nephews and they will return the Earth to its natural rotation which is counter clock wise.

This fact is evidenced in many petroglyphs that speak of the Zodiac, and within the Mayan and Egyptian pyramids. The rotation of the Earth has been manipulated by not so benevolent Star beings. The twins will be seen in our North Western skies. They will come and visit to see who still remembered the original teachings flying in their Patuwvotas, or flying shields. They will bring many of their star family with them in the final days.

The return of the Blue Star Katchina who is also known as Nan ga sohu will be the alarm clock that tells us of the new day and new way of life, a new world that is coming. This is where the changes will begin. They will start as fires that burn within us, and we will burn up with desires and conflict if we do not remember the original teachings, and return to the peaceful way of life.

Not far behind the twins will come the Purifier – The Red Katchina, who will bring the Day of Purification. On this day the Earth, her creatures and all life as we know it will change forever. There will be messengers that will precede this coming of the Purifier. They will leave messages to those on Earth who remember the old ways.

 

 

Red Star Kachina Vs Blue Star Kachina

It`s interesting to note that these 2 colours blue and red also represent the political parties Democrats/Republicans,
Red States/Blue States, fighting (MMA and Boxing) In the Red Corner/Red Gloves, and in the Blue Corner/Blue Gloves, and gangs, Bloods/Crypts. They are pitted against each other as opposing forces that are constantly contending in a paradoxical perpetual battle of Blue vs Red.

 

“It’s no coincidence that these ancient Romans and Chinese soldiers chose red. It’s science. So before we continue with more history, it’s worth noting the numerous studies on the link between red and competitive behaviour. According to research compiled by Psychology Today, wearing red gives competitive edge. It makes you feel more dominant, and to your opponent, it makes you appear more dominant and threatening. Red has been linked to higher levels of testosterone, too.”

 

 

 

For his inauguration on Jan. 20, President Donald Trump wore a red tie with his dark suit, while outgoing President Barack Obama donned a blue tie. Their wives wore the reverse, with Michelle Obama in a red dress and Melania Trump wearing a powder blue ensemble.

The choice of ties and suits for figures in the political spectrum is often done so for the purpose of esoteric messages or hidden meaning. Now the general public will always remain unaware of the meaning of the symbolism, and are quite ignorant of any colour tropes. The red tie, like that worn by President Trump during the 2017 inauguration, is often paired with a counterpart donning the blue tie in order to complete the duality of occult symbolism. While the hands of political figures usually indicate motions known as ‘Hand Mudra’, a type of hex enchanting hand sign given while the figure of import is either speaking or contemplating.

The red tie alludes to fire and power, and the ability to rule via passion or the heart. While the blue tie may allude to the balance of water (very often this colour is shown around a ‘Grace’ figure/person, as in biblical ‘mercy & grace’) and the ability to rule via justice and truth, which often includes a faith based position such as Christianity.

In an esoteric sense of the Occult, the Elite will always Don apparel which Alludes to the Magic Colour Trope of Red Vs Blue.

 

As elements, Hot, Cold, Blood, Death, (heat and moisture) Fire, Water. In relation to Sirius, Rain, and Heat.

 

And in Freemasonry, Blue Lodge, Red Lodge.

Blue is generally regarded as the colour of truth and fidelity, basic teachings of our craft; that blue is the colour used to characterise friendship, one of the jewels of a Mason. It also tells us, “some have found some symbolism in the blue arch of the heavens and have urged that for a Freemason the virtues of friendship and benevolence must be as expansive as the heavens.” It concludes with the reminder that the proper term is “Symbolic Lodge” rather than “Blue Lodge” although blue as a colour and symbol is prominent in our teachings.

The speculative book, Stonehenge: An Ancient Masonic Temple, offers the following regarding the use of blue for our lodges:

“Our lodge since time immemorial has been called the Blue Lodge. The color blue has been indelibly attached to it. Why? Why wasn’t the colour yellow selected and called the Yellow Lodge? Blue is derived from the root signifying ‘Perfection.’ Blue from all ages has been a symbol of truth, secrecy, sincerity and fidelity. There is a reason why the lodge is called the ‘Blue Lodge.’ It goes back to nature’s colours. What colour do you suppose the stones are in the inner circle and horseshoe circle of Stonehenge? They are blue. They are even called the bluestone circle and bluestone horseshoe. The builders of Stonehenge held the colour blue in such high regard that they traveled 130 air miles and 240 miles by land and sea to secure them. They brought some 80 blue stones to the construction site from the Prescelly Mountains of Wales. They hunted until they found ‘blue stones,’ some weighing up to 5 tons each, and moved them to the Stonehenge site for erection. The ‘blue stones’ were part of the earlier stages of the construction project. The color blue was very important to them, and it has been adopted as the colour of our lodge. This is one more ancient tradition handed down from generation to generation. It is generally believed that the Blue Lodge originated from the Blue Stone Temple of Stonehenge.”

The renowned Swiss psychologist, Carl Jung, took a great interest in the folk legends and symbols of earlier ages as he felt that they contributed to an understanding of the changes which he felt had taken place in man’s understanding of himself and his role in the Universe over eons of time. Jung felt that early man had not originally had a clear consciousness or rational thinking capability but, over centuries, developed such a capability and now has come to know only the conscious, and not the unconscious, which was layered over by the development of the conscious. He believed that earlier man had been governed by instincts, much as we think about the animal mind today. He felt that the earlier instinctual mind is still with man today but it is as a shadow behind or beneath the conscious mind. He felt that the integration of that shadow mind with the conscious mind results in the enlightenment or individuation of the individual.

Because of his keen interest, Jung read widely in science, literature, history, philosophy and also folklore and found, in literature from ancient civilisations and religions, parallels in symbolism which he reasoned showed that these arose from a common thread in the instinctive minds of ancient men. In this regard, he adopted the Eastern philosophy that if things repeatedly occur together, it is more than coincidence even if a causal relationship cannot be conclusively proven through scientific methods. He called this synchronicity. Worshipful Brother Kirk MacNulty, author of the beautiful work, Freemasonry: A Journey through Ritual and Symbol, is quoted by Wallace McLeod in his book, A Quest for Light, as also using Jungian concepts in explaining how the three Craft degrees recapitulate the development of the individual person. “The Entered Apprentice degree, (or the Ground Floor of the Temple), represents the physical or material being, Jung’s ‘individual consciousness’. The Fellow Craft, (or Middle Chamber), represents the soul or psyche, Jung’s ‘personal unconscious’. The Master Mason degree,  or Holy of Holies), is the spiritual being, Jung’s ‘collective unconscious’, one step closer to the Divine.” Similar parallels in the symbolism of peoples very far removed from each other culturally, geographically and in time have been noted by Fraser in his seminal work, The Golden Bough, and more recently by Joseph Campbell as reported in his many books, especially his series on the nature of the gods in various cultures.

This is interesting but, you may be asking, what does it have to do with the subject of colour symbolism in Freemasonry? Perhaps these parallels in symbolism have also occurred with the selection of blue as the colour of the symbolic lodge. Perhaps the uses of the symbolism of blue in other cultures can provide insight into its use in Freemasonry. Because of Jung’s detailed research into symbolism, his works may be of more than passing interest to the members of this Craft founded upon the use of symbolism to teach moral principles. The Mason who is willing to expend the effort to glean his writings for the kernels of particular application to the ancient evolution of symbolism used in modern Freemasonry will find it rewarding.

For example, there is no proof that our use of the square and compasses as Masonic symbols has a direct lineal descent from their use as symbols of moral instruction in ancient China, which is evidenced by ancient writings, or from their use in ancient Egypt, as indicated by archaeological findings. The creation myths of the Dogon tribe of Mali in Western Africa offer some striking parallels with the penalty of the Entered Apprentice, but there is almost certainly no very direct lineal relationship. Jung would say that these things arose independently (but synchronistically) from man’s common unconscious. Jung’s reasoning may offer a logical framework for a theory of common threads of symbolism where evidence and proof of direct relationship is lacking.

Among other symbols he researched, Jung found that the colour blue of the heavenly sky has been in many cultures and beliefs a symbol of spirituality. He contrasts this with red as a symbol of emotion. This equates with our feelings about these colours. Blue is the coolest of colours and we equate spirituality with a cool, detached, or other-worldly orientation or philosophy. Red is the warmest of colours which we equate with the heat of anger or passion. Our everyday language, for example, includes the well known phrase, “seeing red”, to dramatically convey the concept of anger. Jung points out that the combination of red and blue provides purple or violet which he says is the symbol of mysticism. He feels that this is a good illustration of his concept, to which I alluded earlier, of the integration or individuation of the personality which he concludes has a duality similar to his concept of the conscious mind and shadow mind or psyche. When the dual parts of the personality, which he equates with the spiritual aspect of the conscious mind, as represented by the colour blue, and the emotional, instinctual aspect of the shadow mind, which he equates with the red, are combined or integrated, he feels they bring the individual to his highest potential, symbolised by violet.

 

 

I found this of interest Masonically, since blue is the colour of the symbolic lodge, which, in Jungian terms, represents the spiritual values to which we aspire. That seems to me to be closely aligned with the moral lessons taught as we progress through the three degrees from the physical man, or Entered Apprentice, to the mindful man, or Fellow Craft, and ultimately to the spiritual man, or Master Mason. This is also evidenced by the symbology of the changes in mode of wearing the apron while progressing through the degrees where the triangular flap, which triangle, Masonic scholars tell us, represents deity, is first separate and above the rectangular apron representing worldly, or base, things. Secondly, the triangle or spiritual symbol is imposed upon the worldly form in the Fellow Craft’s apron, and thirdly, the two are integrated into one triangular form, as a Master Mason, symbolising spirituality.

The above explanation of the symbolism of blue in the symbolic lodge is at least as intellectually and intuitively satisfying as the other explanations offered for the term “Blue Lodge”. For example, Mackey says that blue is the symbol of universal friendship and benevolence, because, as it is the colour of the vault of heaven, which embraces and covers the whole globe, we are thus reminded that in the breast of every brother these virtues should be equally as extensive. He says that blue, except for white, is the only colour which should be used in a Master’s lodge for decorations. Mackey relates that blue was to the Hebrews a symbol of perfection, to the Druids a symbol of truth, to the Hindus a symbol of wisdom, to the Babylonians and the Egyptians a sacred colour, to the Chinese a symbol of divinity, and to medieval Christians, an emblem of immortality.

Some of the Masonic degrees, of which are called chivalric degrees, in both the Scottish and York Rites use red as the basic colour, much as the symbolic lodge uses blue. In the case of the York Rite degree of the Royal Arch, this has been explained by Mackey as the symbol of the ardour and zeal which should actuate all who are in possession of that sublime portion of Freemasonry. Mackey also cites Portal’s Symbolic Colours, which states that red, representing fire, is the symbol of the regeneration and purification of souls. Mackey sees this as a logical reason for the Royal Arch to adopt it because the Royal Arch refers historically to the re-building or regeneration of the Temple of Solomon, and symbolically to the regeneration of life.  In the case of the use of red as the symbolic colour for the heraldic degrees of the York and Scottish Rites, it fits well with the Jungian interpretation of red as the symbol of emotions, because courage, fervour, and zeal, when properly directed, are all noble emotions which are closely associated with the rituals of the heraldic degrees.

Excerpt from Colour Symbolism and Freemasonry by Bro. John Shroeder

 

Blue is an ancient emblem, which is derived from the colour of the vault of heaven and is often used as a symbol of heaven. The ancient Egyptians revered blue as a sacred colour, symbolising an exalted and heavenly stature. In the Trimurti, which is the divine triad of Hinduism, Vishnu the preserver is depicted in celestial or sky blue to indicate that all wisdom emanates from God. The Babylonians regarded blue as a symbol of the Deity. The high priests of the Israelites wore robes of blue and other parts of their accoutrements were decorated with blue, signifying perfection. The Jewish historian and general, Flavius Josephus (37-100 CE), who became a Pharisee and commanded the Jews in their revolt against Rome from 66 CE, said that the blue in the veils of the tabernacle of the nomadic Israelites represented the element of air, alluding to purification and perfection. The Hebrew word used for the blue in the veils of the tabernacle is Tau Kaph Lamed Tau, or tekelet, which actually signifies purple-blue or Cerulian purple, although usually translated as sky blue. Tekelet is derived from another word Tau Kaph Lamed Yod Tau, or tekelët, which implies perfection because it indicates a purpose or end. The Druids regarded blue as a symbol of truth, whilst the medieval Christians considered it to be an emblem of immortality and a symbol of perfection, hope and constancy. Blue has retained all of its ancient meanings over a range of circumstances, but it is especially a symbol of the intellect, of universal friendship, of benevolence and also of the mildness and fidelity that ought to characterise every freemason.

Red, crimson and scarlet are sometimes considered to be equivalent colours and all are universally regarded as an emblem of faith, but as symbols they also have individual meanings. Red has been used as an emblem since antiquity, when it usually signified fire and was an ancient symbol of regeneration and the purification of souls. In this context the phoenix was said to have risen from the ashes. Crimson also is an emblem of purification and regeneration. Scarlet is a symbol of celestial truth, which is alludes to the cleansing effect of fire. In the Egyptian Mysteries both red and scarlet were symbols of energy and life. In Hinduism red signifies blood, which is th e life source and therefore symbolises the creative principle.

From ancient times the Chinese considered red to be a symbol of ambition and power, which is why red has always been an emblem of good luck to them. The ancient Israelites considered red to be a colour of dignity, appropriate to the most opulent and honourable persons, in which sense it was used to embellish the accoutrements of high priests and prophets and was the colour of the cloaks worn by the rulers of Israel. The red in the veils of the tabernacle represented fire and alluded to the purification and regeneration of the souls of those who sought atonement. The Druids also regarded red as a symbol of the purification and regeneration of the soul. Finally, red is used as an emblem of bloodshed and also is emblematic of fervency and zeal.

Excerpt from “The Symbolism of Colours” – Don Falconer

 

In the Egyptian hall of judgment, a departed soul meets with the gods to plead his case of 42 negative confessions. During this confession the deceased would have his red heart weighed against the blue ostrich feather of the goddess Ma’at on a scale of justice. If his heart were too heavy (filled with inequity and sin) then his soul would be fed to a demon and his spirit would cease to exist. If his red heart equals exactly the weight of the bluefeather, the gods would allow him safe passage into the afterlife. Thus the Red Vs. Blue occult trope was conceived and is of course used often, without the knowledge of the general public. Ma’at refers to the goddess and ancient Egyptian concept of truth, balance, order, harmony, law, morality, and justice.

An Egyptian pharaoh was appointed to “achieve” Ma’at, which means that he had to keep and protect justice and harmony in a constant balance, the symbol of which was represented via the blue ostrich feather of the goddess. The Egyptian people sought to destroy the chaos “Isfet” (evil itself). A responsible kingship meant that Egypt would remain in prosperity and at peace of Ma’at.

 

 

Maat or Ma’at (Egyptian m3ˤt) refers to the ancient Egyptian concepts of truth, balance, order, harmony, law, morality, and justice. Maat was also the goddess who personified these concepts, and regulated the stars, seasons, and the actions of mortals and the deities who had brought order from chaos at the moment of creation.

The Egyptian culture was centred on order, everything had its due place in the world. This included religion, society and seasonal changes. The goddesses Ma’at came to represent the concept of balance and order because many Egyptians needed to explain the world around them. She was the one that kept the stars in motion, the seasons changing and the maintaining of the order of Heaven and Earth. The opposing force of this was known in ancient terms as “isfet” or chaos. Ancient Egyptians considered the desert beyond the Nile River to be chaotic; whereas, the area close to the Nile was considered orderly. Together, these two forces brought balance to the world in which they lived and was an important part of everyday Egyptian life.

Ma’at was associated with the law in ancient Egypt. From the 5th dynasty (c. 2510-2370 BC) onwards, the Vizier responsible for justice was called the Priest of Maat and in later periods judges wore images of her. The ‘Spirit of Maat’ was embodied by the chief judge in charge of the Egyptian law courts. He had a dual role, serving as both a priest and working directly in the law courts and justice system. The “Priest of Ma’at” began court hearings whilst wearing the feather of Ma’at and all other court officials wore small golden images of the goddess as a sign of their judicial authority, also as a symbol that their judgement would be balanced and fair. Priests drew the Feather of Ma’at on their tongues with green dye, so that the words they spoke were truth. The priest would rule on the earthly punishment according to the nature of the law that had been broken. Punishments included imposing fines, corporal punishment and in extreme cases capital punishment.

This feather has come to symbolise her being, as well as the representation of balance and order, it became a hieroglyph for “truth.”

 

 

In The Matrix, Morpheus explains to Neo that the Matrix is an illusory world created to prevent humans from discovering that they are slaves to an external influence. Holding out a capsule on each of his palms, he describes the choice facing Neo:

This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill—the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill—you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Remember: all I’m offering is the truth. Nothing more.

The red pill and its opposite, the blue pill, are popular cultural symbols representing the choice between:

  • Knowledge, mental freedom, adversity and the brutal truth of reality (red pill)
  • Falsehood, security, material freedom and the blissful ignorance of illusion (blue pill)

 

 

The messages will be found written in the living stone, through the sacred grains, and even the waters. (Crop Circles have been found in ice) From the Purifier will issue forth a great Red Light. All things will change in their manner of being. Every living thing will be offered the opportunity to change from the largest to the smallest thing.

Those who return to the ways given to us in the original teachings, and live a natural way of life will not be touched by the coming of the Purifier. They will survive and build the new world. Only in the ancient teachings will the ability to understand the messages be found.

It is important to understand that these messages will be found upon every living thing, even within our bodies, even within a drop of our blood. All life forms will receive the messages from the twins… those that fly, the plants, even the rabbit. The appearance of the twins begins a period of seven years will be our final opportunity to change our ways. Everything we experience is all a mater of choice.

Many will appear to have lost their souls in these final days. So intense will the nature of the changes be that those who are weak in spiritual awareness will go insane, for we are nothing without spirit. They will disappear, for they are just hollow vessels for any thing to use. Life will be so bad in the cities that many will choose to leave this plane. Some in whole groups.

Only those who return to the values of the old ways will be able to find peace of mind. For in the Earth we shall find relief from the madness that will be all around us.It will be a very hard time for women with children for they will be shunned, and many of the children in these times will be unnatural. Some being from the Stars some from past worlds, some will even be created by man in an unnatural manner and will be souless. Many of people in this time will be empty in Spirit they will have Sampacu. No life force in their eyes.

As we get close to the time of arrival the Purifier there will be those who walk as ghosts through the cities, through canyons they will have constructed in their man made mountains. Those that walk through these places will be very heavy in their walk, it will appear almost painful as they take each step for they will be disconnected from their spirit and the Earth.

After the arrival of the twins, they will begin to vanish before your eyes like so much smoke. Others will have great deformities, both in the mind and upon their bodies. There will be those who would walk in the body that are not from this reality, for many of the gateways that once protected us will be opened, there will be much confusion. Confusion between sexes, and children and their elders.

Life will get very perverted, and there will be little social order, in these times many will ask for the mountains themselves to fall upon them just to end their misery. Still others will appear as if untouched by what is occurring. The ones who remember the original teachings and have reconnected their hearts and spirit. Those who remember who their mother and father is. The Pahana who have left to live in the Mountains and forest.

When the Purifier comes we will see him first as a small Red Star which will come very close and sit in our heavens watching us. Watching us to see how well we have remembered the sacred teachings.

This Purifier will show us many miraculous signs in our heavens. In this way we will know Creator is not a dream. Even those who do not feel their connection to spirit will see the face of creator across the sky. Things unseen will be felt very strongly.

Many things will begin to occur that will not make sense, for reality will be shifting back in and out of the dream state. There will be many doorways to the lower world that will open at this time. Things long forgotten will come back to remind us of our past creations. All living things will want to be present for this day when time ends, and we enter the forever cycle of the Fifth World.

We will receive many warnings allowing us to change our ways from below the Earth as well as above. Then one morning in a moment. We will awaken to the Red Dawn. The sky will be the color of blood, many things will then begin to happen that right now we are nor sure of their exact nature. For much of reality will not be as it is now.

There will be many strange beasts upon the Earth in those days, some from the past and some that we have never seen. The nature of mankind will appear strange in these times we walk between worlds and we will house many spirits even within our bodies After a time we will again walk with our brothers from the Stars, and rebuild this Earth. But not until the Purifier has left his mark upon the universe.

No thing living will go untouched, here or in the heavens. The way through this time it is said is to be found in our hearts, and reuniting with our spiritual self. Getting simple and returning to living with and upon the Earth and in harmony with her creatures. Remembering that we are the caretakers, the fire keepers of the Spirit. Our relatives from the Stars are coming home to see how well we have faired in our journey.

Reality is a metaphor in which we quest to find answers to the greater truth of who we are and why we are here. Something in our souls tells us that change is happening on a global consciousness level. The blue frequency is part of that.

Sirius is Isis – Rebirth of Consciousness. Blue links to higher/future frequencies of consciousness as we spiral up through the patterns of Sacred Geometry.

Ancient beyond imagination, Egyptian kings and their families took the path after death to higher realms of consciousness. They believed that within them was a potential “that from it would spring the glorious envelope in which the Spirit-Soul (Ka) would take it’s abode”. This would allow the Ka, or Spirit-Soul to form an “immortal body of light”.

The Egyptians believed this power was brought forth from the womb of the Divine Mother Isis, and emanated from her star, the brightest star in the sky, Sirius.

 

 

 

Earth’s link to Sirius is an important puzzle. Sirius takes us back to creation. It links with Sumer-Mesopotamia, Cradle of Civilisation, Ancient Egypt, the Great Pyramid, the Hopi, and linked to humanity’s gradual awakening. We exist based on electromagnetic energies which in turn create polarity – duality – opposites – conflict and emotions. This all gives us the illusion of reality moving in cycles of time.

Our reality used these patterns and thoughts to create clues that link our past, present and future. These clues help us ‘awaken’ and understand who we are and what is happening. Sometimes we need a tragic event to help us awaken. Destruction seems necessary before we move on in our three dimensional programmed reality.

 

 

The end of all Hopi ceremonialism will come when a “Kachina” removes his mask during a dance in the plaza before uninitiated children the general public. For a while there will be no more ceremonies, no more faith. Then Oraibi will be rejuvenated with its faith and ceremonies, marking the start of a new cycle of Hopi life.

World War III will be started by those peoples who first revealed the light (the divine wisdom or intelligence) in the other old countries (India, China, Islamic Nations, Africa.)

The United States will be destroyed, land and people, by atomic bombs and radioactivity. Only the Hopis and their homeland will be preserved as an oasis to which refugees will flee. Bomb shelters are a fallacy. “It is only materialistic people who seek to make shelters. Those who are at peace in their hearts already are in the great shelter of life. There is no shelter for evil. Those who take no part in the making of world division by ideology are ready to resume life in another world, be they Black, White, Red, or Yellow race. They are all one, brothers.”

The war will be “a spiritual conflict with material matters. Material matters will be destroyed by spiritual beings who will remain to create one world and one nation under one power, that of the Creator.”

That time is not far off. It will come when the Saquasohuh (Blue Star) Kachina dances in the plaza and removes his mask. He represents a blue star, far off and yet invisible, which will make its appearance soon. The time is foretold by a song sung during the Wuwuchim ceremony. It was sung in 1914 just before World War I, and again in 1940 before World War II, describing the disunity, corruption, and hatred contaminating Hopi rituals, which were followed by the same evils spreading over the world. This same song was sung in 1961 during the Wuwuchim ceremony.

The Emergence to the future Fifth World has begun. It is being made by the humble people of little nations, tribes, and racial minorities. “You can read this in the earth itself. Plant forms from previous worlds are beginning to spring up as seeds as described in SW-II, Effects and Coming Events # 1. This could start a new study of botany if people were wise enough to read them. The same kinds of seeds are being planted in the sky as stars. The same kinds of seeds are being planted in our hearts. All these are the same, depending how you look at them. That is what makes the Emergence to the next, Fifth World.

“These comprise the nine most important prophecies of the Hopis, connected with the creation of the nine worlds: the three previous worlds on which we lived, the present Fourth World, the three future worlds we have yet to experience, and the world of Taiowa, the Creator, and his nephew, Sotuknang.”

The Hopi and others who were saved from the Great Flood made a sacred covenant with the Great Spirit never to turn away from him. He made a set of sacred stone tablets, called Tiponi, into which he breathed his teachings, prophecies, and warnings. Before the Great Spirit hid himself again, he placed before the leaders of the four different racial groups four different colors and sizes of corn; each was to choose which would be their food in this world. The Hopi waited until last and picked the smallest ear of corn. At this, the Great Spirit said:

“It is well done. You have obtained the real corn, for all the others are imitations in which are hidden seeds of different plants. You have shown me your intelligence; for this reason I will place in your hands these sacred stone tablets, Tiponi, symbol of power and authority over all land and life to guard, protect, and hold in trust for me until I shall return to you in a later day, for I am the First and I am the Last.”

The Great Chieftain of the Bow Clan led the faithful ones to this new land, but he fell into evil ways. His two sons scolded him for his mistake, and after he died they assumed the responsibilities of leadership. Each brother was given a set of Tiponi, and both were instructed to carry them to a place to which the Great Spirit directed them.

The elder brother of the shining light was told to go immediately to the east, toward the rising sun, and upon reaching his destination to start back immediately to look for his younger brother, who remained on Turtle Island [the Continental United States of America].

His mission was to help his younger brother to bring about the Purification Day, at which time all evildoers would be punished or destroyed, after which real peace, brotherhood, and everlasting life would be established. The elder brother would restore all land to his younger brother, from whom the Evil one among the white men had taken it. The elder brother of the shining light also would come to look for the Tiponi tablets and fulfill the mission given him by the Great Spirit.

The younger brother was instructed to travel throughout the land and mark his footsteps as he went about. Both brothers were told that a great white star would appear in the sky; when that happened, all people would know that the elder brother had reached his destination. Thereupon all people were to settle wherever they happened to be at that time, there to remain until the elder brother returned.

The Hopi settled in the area now known as Four Corners, where the state lines of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet. They lived in humble simplicity and the land produced abundant crops. This area is the “heart” of Turtle Island [the U.S.] and of Mother Earth, and it is the microcosmic image of the macrocosm of the entire planet. Each Hopi clan perpetuates a unique ceremony, and the ceremonies together maintain the balance of natural forces of sunlight, rain and winds, and reaffirm the Hopi respect for all life and trust in the Great Spirit.

The Hopi were told that after a time White Men would come and take their land and try to lead the Hopi into evil ways. But in spite of all the pressures against them, the Hopi were told they must hold to their ancient religion and their land, though always without violence. If they succeeded, they were promised that their people and their land would be a center from which the True Spirit would be reawakened.

It is said that after many years the elder brother might change the color of his skin, but his hair will remain black. He will have the ability to write, and he will be the only person able to read the Tiponi. When he returns to find his younger brother, the Tiponi will be placed side by side to show all the world that they are true brothers. Then great judgment will take place, for the elder will help the younger brother to obtain real justice for all Indian brothers who have been cruelly mistreated by the white man since he came to Turtle Island.

The transformed elder brother, the True White Brother, will wear a red cloak or a red cap, similar to the pattern on the back of a horned toad. He will bring no religion but his own, and will bring with him the Tiponi tablets. He will be all-powerful; none will be able to stand against him. He will come swiftly, and in one day gain control of this entire continent. It is said, “If he comes from the East, the destruction will not be so bad. But if he comes from the West, do not get up on your housetops to see because he will have no mercy.”

The True White Brother will bring with him two great, intelligent and powerful helpers, one of whom will have a sign of a swastika (a masculine symbol of purity), and the sign of the sun. The second great helper will have the sign of a celtic cross with red lines (representing female life blood) between the arms of the cross.

When the Great Purification is near, these helpers will shake the earth first for a short time in preparation. After they shake the earth two times more, they will be joined by the True White Brother, who will become one with them and bring the Purification Day to the world. All three will help the “younger brother” (the Hopi and other pure-hearted people) to make a better world. In the prophecies, the two helpers are designated by the Hopi word for “population,” as if they were large groups of people.

The Hopi were warned that if these three great beings failed, terrible evil would befall the world and great numbers of people would be killed. However, it was said that they would succeed if enough Hopi remained true to the ancient spirit of their people. The True White Brother and his helpers will show the people of earth a great new life plan that will lead to everlasting life. The earth will become new and beautiful again, with an abundance of life and food. Those who are saved will share everything equally. All races will intermarry and speak one tongue and be a family.

Hopi prophecy states that World War III will be started by the people who first received the Light, China, Palestine, India and Africa. When the war comes, the United States will be destroyed by “gourds of ashes” which will fall to the ground, boiling the rivers and burning the earth, where no grass will grow for many years, and causing a disease that no medicine can cure. This can only mean nuclear or atomic bombs; no other weapon causes such effects. Bomb shelters will be useless, for “Those who are at peace in their hearts already are in the Great Shelter of Life. There is no shelter for evil. When the Saquahuh (blue Star) Kachina dances in the plaza and removes his mask, the time of the great trial will be here.” The Hopi believe that only they will be saved.

The Hopi also have prophesied that “Turtle Island could turn over two or three times and the oceans could join hands and meet the sky.” This seems to be a prophecy of a “pole shift” -a flipping of the planet on its axis. The Hopi call this imminent condition, and that of society today, “Koyaanisqatsi”, which means “world out of balance… a state of life that calls for another way. ”

The account begins by describing how, while driving along a desert highway one hot day in the summer of 1958, a minister named David Young stopped to offer a ride to an Indian elder, who accepted with a nod. After riding in silence for several minutes, the Indian said:

I am White Feather, a Hopi of the ancient Bear Clan. In my long life I have traveled through this land, seeking out my brothers, and learning from them many things full of wisdom. I have followed the sacred paths of my people, who inhabit the forests and many lakes in the east, the land of ice and long nights in the north, and the places of holy altars of stone built many years ago by my brothers’ fathers in the south. From all these I have heard the stories of the past, and the prophecies of the future. Today, many of the prophecies have turned to stories, and few are left, the past grows longer, and the future grows shorter.

And now White Feather is dying. His sons have all joined his ancestors, and soon he too shall be with them. But there is no one left, no one to recite and pass on the ancient wisdom. My people have tired of the old ways, the great ceremonies that tell of our origins, of our emergence into the Fourth World, are almost all abandoned, forgotten, yet even this has been foretold. The time grows short.

My people await Pahana, the lost White Brother, [from the stars] as do all our brothers in the land. He will not be like the white men we know now, who are cruel and greedy. we were told of their coming long ago. But still we await Pahana.

He will bring with him the symbols, and the missing piece of that sacred tablet now kept by the elders, given to him when he left, that shall identify him as our True White Brother.

The Fourth World shall end soon, and the Fifth World will begin. This the elders everywhere know. The Signs over many years have been fulfilled, and so few are left.

“This is the First Sign: We are told of the coming of the white-skinned men, like Pahana, but not living like Pahana men who took the land that was not theirs. And men who struck their enemies with thunder.”

“This is the Second Sign: Our lands will see the coming of spinning wheels filled with voices. In his youth, my father saw this prophecy come true with his eyes, the white men bringing their families in wagons across the prairies.”

“This is the Third Sign: A strange beast like a buffalo but with great long horns, will overrun the land in large numbers. These White Feather saw with his eyes, the coming of the white men’s cattle.”

“This is the Fourth Sign: The land will be crossed by snakes of iron.”

“This is the Fifth Sign: The land shall be criss-crossed by a giant spider’s web.”

“This is the Sixth sign: The land shall be criss-crossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun.”

“This is the Seventh Sign: You will hear of the sea turning black, and many living things dying because of it.”

“This is the Eight Sign: You will see many youth, who wear their hair long like my people, come and join the tribal nations, to learn their ways and wisdom.”

“And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my people will cease.”

These are the Signs that great destruction is coming. The world shall rock to and fro. The white man will battle against other people in other lands with those who possessed the first light of wisdom. There will be many columns of smoke and fire such as White Feather has seen the white man make in the deserts not far from here. Only those which come will cause disease and a great dying.

Many of my people, understanding the prophecies, shall be safe. Those who stay and live in the places of my people also shall be safe. Then there will be much to rebuild. And soon, very soon afterward, Pahana will return. He shall bring with him the dawn of the Fifth World. He shall plant the seeds of his wisdom in their hearts. Even now the seeds are being planted. These shall smooth the way to the Emergence into the Fifth World.

 

 

“But White Feather shall not see it. I am old and dying. You perhaps will see it. In time, in time…”

The old Indian fell silent. They had arrived at his destination, and Reverend David Young stopped to let him out of the car. They never met again. Reverend Young died in 1976, so he did not live to see the further fulfillment of this remarkable prophecy.

The signs are interpreted as follows: The First Sign is of guns. The Second Sign is of the pioneers’ covered wagons. The Third Sign is of longhorn cattle. The Fourth Sign describes the railroad tracks. The Fifth Sign is a clear image of our electric power and telephone lines. The Sixth Sign describes concrete highways and their mirage-producing effects. The Seventh Sign foretells of oil spills in the ocean. The Eighth Sign clearly indicates the “Hippy Movement” of the 1960s. The Ninth Sign was the U.S. Space Station Skylab, which fell to Earth in 1979. According to Australian eye-witnesses, it appeared to be burning blue.

Another Hopi prophecy warns that nothing should be brought back from the Moon, obviously anticipating the Apollo 11 mission that returned with samples of lunar basalt. If this was done, the Hopi warned, the balance of natural and universal laws and forces would be disturbed, resulting in earthquakes, severe changes in weather patterns, and social unrest. All these things are happening today, though of course not necessarily because of Moon rocks.

The Hopi also predicted that when the “heart” of the Hopi land trust is dug up, great disturbances will develop in the balance of nature, for the Hopi holy land is the microcosmic image of the entire planet; any violations of nature in the Four Corners region will be reflected and amplified all over the Earth.

In 1959, a six-man delegation of traditional Hopi leaders led by the late spiritual leader, Dan Katchongva, traveled to the United Nations Building in New York to fulfill a sacred mission in accordance with ancient Hopi instructions. Because of their prophetic knowledge, the Hopi leaders felt it was time to go east to the edge of their motherland, where “a house of mica” [The United Nations building] would stand at this time, where Great Leaders from many lands would be gathered to help any people who are in trouble.”

They were to go when the motherland of the Hopi and other Indian brothers were about to be taken away from them and their way of life was in danger of being completely destroyed by evil ones among the White Men and by some other Indian brothers who were influenced by the White Race. This is a clear and present danger: the betrayal of Indian-U.S.A. treaties, land sales, and coal and uranium mining are destroying the Hopi land and its people, and all other peoples and lands, in eventual effect…

According to prophecy, at least one, two or three leaders or nations would hear and understand the Hopi warnings, as “It is told that they too should know these ancient instructions”. Upon hearing the message of the Hopi, they would act immediately to correct many wrongs being done to the chosen race, the Red Man who was granted permission to hold in trust all land and life for the Great Spirit. This prophecy would seem to have failed. Hopi prophecy also declares that the doors of the “Glass House” would be closed to them. This was the case at first, though they have delivered their message to the United Nations Assembly since then:

“When the Great Leaders in the Glass House refuse to open the door to you when you stand before it that day, [Repeated, again in 1993] do not be discouraged or turn about on the path you walk, but take courage, determination, and be of great rejoicing in your hearts, for on that day the White Race who are on your land with you have cut themselves from you and thereon lead themselves to the Greatest Punishment at the Day of Purification. Many shall be destroyed for their sins and evil ways. The Great Spirit has decreed it and no one can stop it, change it, or add anything to it. It shall be fulfilled!”

On August 7, 1970, a spectacular UFO sighting was witnessed by dozens of people and photographed by Chuck Roberts of the Prescott (Arizona)”Courier”. This sighting occurred after a “UFO calling” by Paul Solem and several Hopi Indians. This sighting was interpreted by some Hopis as being a partial fulfillment of a certain Hopi prophecy given by the Great Spirit Maasau and inscribed on Second Mesa, warning of the coming of Purification Day, when the true Hopi will be flown to other planets in “ships without wings.”

Hopi prophecy also tells us that there will be a mass migration of Indians northward from Mexico and Central and South America. The migration will be led by a 130-year old Indian named Etchata Etchana. The movement will come after the huge fire and explosion that will herald the advent of the True White Brother.

According to Hopi belief, the survivors of the Great Deluge thousands of years ago split up into four groups that moved north, south, east and west. Only one group completed their journey to the North Pole and back, under the guidance of a brilliant “star” in which the Great Spirit Maasau traveled. When he landed, he drew a petroglyph on Second Mesa, showing a maiden (with the traditional “butterfly” hair arrangement) riding in a wingless, dome-shaped craft. The petroglyph signified the coming Day of Purification when the true Hopi will fly to other planets in “ships without wings.”

“The return of the Blue Star Katchina who is also known as Nan ga sohu  will be the alarm clock that tells us of the new day and new way of life, and a new world that is coming.  This is where the changes will begin.  They will start as fires that burn within us, and we will burn up with desires and conflict if we do not remember the original teachings, and return to the peaceful way of life.”

 

 

From Carl Sagan (Comet-1985)

“…Consider [this]: The Sun has a DARK SISTER. Long ago, before even great grandmother’s time, the two suns danced together in the sky. But the DARK ONE was jealous that her sister was so much brighter, and in her rage she cursed us for not loving her, and loosed comets upon the world. A terrible winter came, and darkness fell and bitter cold, and almost every living thing perished. After many seasons, the Bright Sister returned to her children, and it was warm and light once more, and life was renewed. But the DARK SISTER IS NOT DEAD. She is only in hiding. ONE DAY SHE WILL RETURN [and the Demon Sun’s entourage will attack again—GJ]…”

Page 304.

A remarkable passage from Sagan. Sagan was giving us a hint as to what he might have known from other, more obscure esoteric sources. One such source is the Kolbrin bible.

From Marshall Masters (The Kolbrin)

CRT:4:5 “Then came the day when all things became still and apprehensive, for God caused a sign to appear in the Heavens, so that men should know the Earth would be afflicted, and the SIGN WAS A STRANGE STAR”.

CRT:4:6 “THE STAR GREW and waxed to a great brightness and was awesome to behold. IT PUT FORTH HORNS AND SANG, BEING UNLIKE ANY OTHER EVER SEEN. So men, seeing it, said among themselves, ‘Surely, this is God appearing in the Heavens above us’. THE STAR WAS NOT GOD, THOUGH IT WAS DIRECTED BY HIS DESIGN, but the people had not the wisdom to understand’.

CRT:4:7 “Then God manifested Himself in the Heavens, His voice was as the roll of thunders and HE WAS CLOTHED WITH SMOKE AND FIRE. He carried lightnings in His hand and His breath, falling upon the Earth, brought forth brimstone and embers.

CRT:4:8 “Such was the likeness and manifestation of God in those days. Awesome was His countenance, terrible His voice of wrath, the sun and moon hid themselves in fear and there was a heavy darkness over the face of the Earth”.

CRT:4:9 “God passed through the spaces of the Heavens above with a mighty roar and a loud trumpeting. Then came the grim dead silence and BLACK RED LIT TWILIGHT of doom. Great fires and smoke rose up from the ground and men gasped for air. The land was rent asunder and swept clean by a mighty deluge of waters. A hole opened up in the middle of the land, the waters entered and it sank beneath the seas”.

CRT:4:10 “The mountains of the East and West were split apart and stood up in the midst of the waters which raged about. THE NORTHLAND TILTED AND TURNED OVER ON ITS SIDE”.

[This passage describes “rapid mountain building.” —GJ]

CRT:4:11 “Then again the tumult and clamour ceased and all was silent. In the quiet stillness madness broke out among men, frenzy and shouting filled the air. They fell upon one another in senseless wanton bloodshed; neither did they spare woman or child, for they knew not what they did. They ran unseeing, dashing themselves to destruction. They fled to caves and were buried and, taking refuge in trees, they were hung. There was rape, murder and violence of every kind”.

CRT:4:12 “The deluge of waters swept back and the land was purged clean. Rain beat down unceasingly and there were great winds. The surging waters overwhelmed the land and man, his flocks and his gardens and all his works ceased to exist.

CRT:4:13 “Some of the people were saved upon the mountainsides and upon the flotsam, but they were scattered far apart over the face of the Earth. They fought for survival in the lands of uncouth people. Amid coldness they survived in caves and sheltered places.”

CRT:4:14 “The Land of the LITTLE PEOPLE and the Land of GIANTS… the Lands of the East and West were all inundated. The Mountain Land and the Lands of the South, where there is gold and great beasts, were not covered by the waters”.

[South America—GJ]

CRT:4:15 “Men were distracted and in despair. They rejected the Unseen God behind all things for something which they had seen and known by its manifestation. They were less than children in those days and could not know that God had afflicted the Earth in understanding and not wilfully, for the sake of man and the correction of his ways.”

“His eye was a black void and His mouth an abyss containing the winds of Destruction. He encircled the whole of the Heavens, BEARING UPON HIS BACK A BLACK ROBE adorned with stars”.

Another example of our Sun’s Dark Sister comes from this 1608 European Woodcut (shown tbelow). Notice the Sun’s Dark Sister. This amazing rendering from Vincenzo Cartari Le imagini de gli dei Padua portrays two suns! Sagan no doubt also knew that the word ‘disaster ’ is derived from the Latin ‘dis’ and ‘astrum’ which means ‘EVIL STAR.’

“The Khabs is in the Khu, not the Khu is in the Khabs.”
-Aleister Crowley

The essential aspect concerning the discoveries made in the previous chapter is that they explain key aspects of our ancient heritage. As was already said, The Book of the Law leads us into the Great Pyramid along with a line drawn at a 26′ angle. We are likewise led to the Sphinx when the anagram of Bast appears in the book. This leaves us in the middle of two ancient wonders and right next to Cairo, the city of Mars. It has actually already been demonstrated that Egypt as well as numerous other aspects of our civilization have actually fashioned themselves to serve as a tribute to the planet Mars, but there was another heavenly body that was held in even higher regard: the star Sirius.

Shining as the brightest star in our heavens, the Egyptians based their entire calendar on the movement of this sacred star. It was already indicated that he Great Pyramid was built to synchronize along with Sirius so that the star would certainly shine through the hole to the Queen’s Chamber at a precise moment. Esoteric writings indicate that the light shining through the shaft was meant to impart the starlight of Sirius to an initiate during a ritual. If Egypt was so fascinated along with Sirius, it stands to reason that the ancient civilization of Mars had a similar reverence for the star. In fact, the geometric shapes on the planet Mars have actually been said to be built in tribute to Sirius.

According to one legend, the face on Mars was in honor of the god or solar logos known as Sukon. The Sirians settled Mars through his permission. He has actually likewise been identified as Set or Seth. The reason the Sirians settled Mars was because it was at that time in the cradle orbit of life. Taking 720 days to get around the sun would certainly have actually resulted in the most preferable weather that was conducive to civilization at that particular time period.

In The Montauk Project, it was the Sirians who provided the Montauk chair used for the time experiments. It was a Mr. X who had approached me and told me that he had been involved in negotiations to obtain the chair. This man likewise told me of Crowley’s ability to manipulate time and was the first to suggest that the Philadelphia Experiment and Montauk Project were both resulting effects of Crowley’s magick.

All of this is very ironic when one looks yet deeper into Crowley’s secret connections. Crowley was not only involved in the OTO but was likewise a member of an arcane secret society known as the A:.A:. (Argenteum Astrum) or the Order of the Silver Star. The “silver star” referred to is Sirius itself, the most prominent in the heavens and positioned as the chief star in the ancient constellation “Phoenix”. The ancient Assyrians and Phoenicians both derive their name from this legacy.

 

 

Crowley identified the Order of the Silver Star as the Illuminati itself. As he was considered to be the head of the Illuminati, the correspondences continue to run even deeper. The heart of his magical current was inspired from Sirius and there was much tradition to back this up. In occult tradition, Sirius is the Hidden God or “the sun behind the sun”. As the moon reflects the sun, so does the sun reflect Sirius. This concept was expressed in The Book of the Law when Crowley wrote “The Khabs is in the Khu, not the Khu is in the Khabs.” The word Khab means star while Khu refers to light. What is being taught here is that collective “wisdom” often assumes that the stars emanate light. The truth of the matter is that the stars are in the light and are merely reflecting it. It was in this sense that Crowley and the ancients who worshipped Sirius were worshipping the light of creation. Sirius was the brightest star, therefore it reflected the most light and was the most powerful.

 

 

According to the ancient Egyptians, there was a special occult link between Sirius and the Earth when they were at their closest distance. In other words, more universal light was being reflected from Sirius than at any other time of the year. This link was found to be most powerful during the Dog Days of August (Sirius is known as the Dog Star) which run from July 23 rd to August 23rd. Some consider them to peak out as late as September 8th. This aspect of Sirius is very synchronistic if you remember the theory referred to in The Montauk Project that the biorhythms of the Earth run every twenty years on August 12th. This date is not only the anniversary of Crowley’s wedding, the Philadelphia Experiment and the culmination of the Montauk Project; it is right in the center of the Dog Days. Of course, the Montauk chair was supposed to be supplied by the Sirians. Obviously, if this whole incredible Montauk scenario is true, it stands to reason that the Sirians might have actually an idea or two about how to make a chair that resonates along with the consciousness of time.

 

 

According to information from the Montauk story, the Sirians were technical creatures and were not very political. According to Al Bielek, the Sirians look very human in some respects. They are muscular but have actually vertical slit eyes, like a cat’s eyes. They wear a covering over their hair, and it is suspected that they are bald. Sometimes they have actually strange things on their ears which could be communicating devices. They are approximately six feet in height and can pass for humans in the proper attire. At Montauk, they were generally affable and did their job.

 

 

Not too much else has actually been said about them, nor do I have actually anything more to add from that quarter. What is important is that they seem to have actually a rather strong correspondence in the information that is being revealed.

A book entitled The Twelfth Planet by Zecharia Sitchin documents very well that Earth has actually been visited by extraterrestrial critters since time immemorial. This work traces the activity back to ancient Sumeria which is exactly where the Sirians settled. All of this not only places the Sirians at the focal point of our planetary theology, it makes them a center of all sorts of alien activity.

Crowley studied this time line at its source when he examined the ceremonial rites of the Sirians or ancient Sumerians, whatever you want to call them. In history, these beings were known as the shepherd kings and they were called the Yezidi. Their prophet was Yezid and Crowley discovered that he was a reincarnation of him.

As Crowley studied these ancient Sumerians and their rites, he learned they were sexual in the extreme and orgiastic. The ceremonies were all done in synchronization along with the stellar revolutions. numerous eventually found-their way into the Roman and Greek mystery schools. These ancients looked at the primitive urges in a much different way that “civilized” society does today. Not unlike animals in mating season, they recognized instinctually that revolutions of the universe coincided along with sexual urges that enabled one to gain access to invisible worlds or other dimensions. In the Hindu tantric arts which is known as the yoga of love, these urges would certainly be better defined as kalas which are units of time or vaginal vibrations. If one reduces space and time to its male and female aspects, it is easy to grasp that Mother Nature is going to have actually undulations that correspond to the girl thingy. Earlier in this book, the vesica pisces was illustrated. This was an eye shaped glyph that resulted as the second act of creation unfolded. It is not only the shape of an eye, it is known as the Eye of Horus or as the Eye of Set (Sirius). When this “eye” is in a vertical position, it is symbolic of the vagina.

 

 

As the geometry of space and time unfolds in the evolutionary process (which is known as Mother Nature), there are processes and repetitions that mimic or harmonize along with what we know as the sexual process. These very energies are incredibly powerful as they make creation a reality. Of course, the morphogenetic grid is the blueprint that becomes reality. It is in this manner that the ancient Sumerians or Sirians did orgiastic rites. They were honoring the undulations and unfoldments of geometric evolution by linking their consciousness through the sexual process.

 

 

We all know that we go into a different state of consciousness during the sexual act. As it is a creation process, it is not hard to relate that we can then have actually an effect on creation when in this form of consciousness. When we engage in sex, we are tapping into the blueprint that made the whole universe possible.

As Crowley studied this information, he saw that the ancients understood what they were doing in their orgiastic rites. Of course, if you were to walk in on an orgy today, you might find that the procedure has actually degenerated into an unholy mess. On the other hand, magical energies would certainly definitely be present.

All of this brings us back to Bast, the goddess of witchcraft and sexual magick in the Egyptian pantheon. If you ever had the urge to do anything of a bizarre sexual nature, you were entering the realm of Bast. Who exactly was she?

Often identified as the Egyptian cat goddess, Bast is one of the most ancient forms of Babalon, the Mother goddess. Bast is portrayed as both a cat and lion. As the goddess of sexual magick, she ruled over lust and sexual heat. It was her job to see that all potentialities manifested and had their day in the sun. Bast is readily identified as the Beast because she ” presided” over the vast sexual experiments of Atlantis (and later Egypt) which gave rise to mermaids, minotaurs, centaurs, Pegasus and the like.

On July 22, 1973, the occultist and philosopher Robert Anton Wilson performed the Invocation of the Holy Guardian Angel, a ritual devised by Aleister Crowley to put you in touch with your higher self. He wasn’t terribly impressed with the results that he got that night, but he woke up the next morning, July 23, with the thought “Sirius is very important” stuck in his head. This being way back in primitive times, there was no internet, so he had to find out what was so important about Sirius from books at his local library. So he hopped on his dinosaur and headed down there.

Imagine his surprise when he found out that Sirius was the focal point of the Egyptian Dog Days celebrations and that they had started on that very date of July 23 and lasted until September 8. This was the time that the Egyptians believed that their connection to Sirius, which they associated with both Osiris and Isis, was the strongest. Wilson continued his occult experiments during this time and began to receive telepathic messages from an intelligence that he sometimes thought might be an extraterrestrial from Sirius. Other times he thought it might be his Holy Guardian Angel. Sometimes he thought that it was his own unconscious mind. Most of the time, he wasn’t sure where this was coming from.

He soon learned that he wasn’t the only one with a connection to Sirius. The afore mentioned Aleister Crowley had formed an occult order called the Argentum Astrum, or Silver Star, in 1907. In his book Aleister Crowley and the Hidden God, Kenneth Grant identifies this silver star as the Eye of Set, the sun behind the sun, Sothis, or Sirius. This was no colossal surprise to Wilson since he had originally “contacted” Sirius through one of Crowley’s rituals, though that wasn’t its intended purpose.

For a precise historical overview of not only the connections between Sirius and ancient occult orders but also of the intrinsic relationship between that star system and Sothis or Set-An, we must examine Kenneth Grant’s work:

“The one place in Crowley’s writings where he gives the meaning of the initials A.’.A.’. is in his magical record (Cefalu, 1921) where it appears as ACTHP APLOC. This is a corrupt Graeco-Coptic form of Argenteum Astrum (the Silver Star) yet it is the true occult key to the nature of the order, which is not expressed by the correct Latin version of the name. Argos derives from arg or arca, the female generative power symbolized by the moon, the womb-shaped argha used in the mysteries, synonymous with the queen of heaven. Arghya (Sanskrit) is the libation cup; Aster Argos is the lunar or ’silver’ star.

“The lunar component is represented by the eye of Isis, and her star is Sirius, the dog-star (Set). The order of the Silver Star is thus the order of the eye of Set, ’the Son behind the Sun,’ represented astronomically by the star of Isis, which is Sothis (Sirius).

 

 

 

“The constellation of which Sirius was the chief star was once named the Phoenix [this constellation probably corresponded to the complex of stars now known as Cygnus and Aquila]. This was the secret name of Baphomet (Crowley) as the supreme head of the O.T.O. [the Ordo Templi Orientis or Order of the Temple of the East, so called because the east is the place of sunrise. The reference is not, however, to the physical sun, but to the eye of Set, astronomically imaged by Sirius.] He assumed the god-form of this bird (an emblem of the sothic year or cycle) because it reached the meridian (i.e. attained supremacy) at the moment of the rising of Sirius, or Set.

 

 

“The Silver Star (A:.A:.) is Sirius. As Hoor-paar-Kraat, whose formula is silence and strength, he is the undying god, beyond our solar system. Horus is the ’son’ of this god and the sun (or father) of our solar system. Horus is thus Hrumachis (son of) the star, Sirius. Sirius, Sothis or Set-An, thus represents the supreme, the eternal light. The star is therefore the key to the present aeon of Horus, for it represents the energy that will permeate the earth during the present cycle.”

What did surprise him was when J.G. Bennett, a student of the famous Russian occultist Georges Gurdjieff, wrote that while Gurdjieff was composing his book Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson, he would have key passages read back to him aloud to determine if their meaning was too obvious. If they were, he would rewrite them to “bury the dog deeper.” When people pointed out that what he meant to say was “bury the bone deeper,” he would reply that he was not burying bones but a dog. The dog was Sirius, and the subject of the book was extraterrestrial intelligence repeatedly intervening in human affairs to speed up our evolution, a concept unheard of at the time but one that is seriously considered by some UFO researchers today.

After publishing an article about all of this, Wilson received a letter from a man in Detroit stating that in a lecture he had attended, a Dr. Douglas Baker of the Theosophical Society (founded by Helena Blavatsky) claimed that Sirius is the Ajna (third eye) chakra of a galactic being and that our sun is the Heart chakra. Our evolution, Dr. Baker said, depends on our raising the energy level of the Heart center to the Ajna. This connected Blavatsky as well as Gurdjieff and Crowley to Sirius, and they are the undeniable Big Three of 20th century occultism. Even if you think occultism is all lizard droppings, you have to admit that this is quite a coincidence.

Excerpt from Cosmic Trigger: The Final Secret of the Illuminati, by Robert Anton Wilson

“Recently, English playwright Heathcote Williams sent me a Xerox of There Is No More Firmament, a one-act play written by the pioneer surrealist, Antonin Artaud, back in the early 1920’s. This strange, weirdly suggestive drama certainly deserves to be mentioned as part of the Sirius Mystery.

“There Is No More Firmament begins with discordant music indicating ’a far-off cataclysm.’ The curtain rises on an ordinary street scene, with actors coming and going rapidly. There are bits of ordinary conversation (’Wines … windowglass … gold’s going down’), suggestions of violence and insanity (’He’s undressing me.

Help, he’s ripping my dress off…’ ’I’m on fire, I’m burning, I’m going to jump’) and, finally, the word ’Sirius’ repeated in every tone of voice and every pitch of the scale: SIRIUS … SIRIUS … SIRIUS … SIRIUS … Then a loudspeaker thunders, ’THE GOVERNMENT URGES YOU TO REMAIN CALM.’

“Actors rush about claiming that the sun is getting bigger, the plague has broken out, there is thunder without lightning, etc. A reasonable voice tries to explain, ’It was a magnetic phenomenon…’ Then the loudspeaker tells us:

“STUPENDOUS DISCOVERY. SKY PHYSICALLY ABOLISHED. EARTH ONLY A MINUTE AWAY FROM SIRIUS. NO MORE FIRMAMENT.

“One actor claims it is the end of the world. Another says it is two worlds ramming each other.

 

 

But it gets better. In 1976, an astronomer named Robert Temple, a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, had a book published entitled The Sirius Mystery. It deals in part with the similarities between the civilizations and languages of ancient northern African and Mesopotamian peoples and the possibility that they may share a common origin. Its main focus, however, is the Dogon, a primitive tribe that lives on the plains of Mali in northwestern Africa.

That little dot on the lower left adverse is Sirius B

Temple starts off by reprinting an anthropological study of the Dogon by French anthropologists Marcel Griaule and Germaine Dieterlen published in 1950. He seemingly stumbled upon this report which details the Dogon’s extensive knowledge of Sirius – knowledge that he realized no primitive tribe should possess but which was nevertheless accurate. The Dogon not only knew that Sirius was actually a double star system, although this can only be seen with powerful telescopes, but also that the second star, the dwarf star Sirius B, is one of the smallest and densest in the galaxy. They also knew that the orbital period of Sirius B is 50 years.

This “invisible” dwarf star was the hidden god alluded to in the title of Grant’s book about Crowley. He associated it with Osiris, while Sirius A was connected to Isis. If Crowley was right and this was why the Egyptians linked Sirius to both of these gods, it would seem to indicate that the Egyptians were also aware that Sirius was a double star system.

So how did the Dogon know all of this? They say that they know all of this because visitors from Sirius that they called the Nommo came here thousands of years ago and told them so. Temple estimates that this occurred around 4500 BCE, a date that he arrived at primarily by looking at the times when the first civilizations formed in this area. (Why the Egyptians and Sumerians got a kick-start on establishing their civilizations from the Nommo while the Dogon remained primitive for more than 6000 years following their alleged contact isn’t specified.) The Dogon describe the Nommo as being fish-people, and the ancient Assyrian god Oannes is also depicted as being half man, half fish. Coincidence? Maybe.

Temple himself does not insist that this connection to Sirius had to involve actual beings coming here in spaceships, even though he definitely leans that way. He also points out that information about Sirius and the sudden birth of civilization in the area could have come from an unknown, more advanced group of people (Atlantis?). He only broadly hints that contact may have been established in some more subtle way, i.e. Wilson’s “tuning in” on the Sirius connection via an occult ritual at just the right time of year.

Needless to say, criticism of Temple from the academic community was swift in coming. Some accused him of outright fraud, but most were a little kinder in their condemnation. Most simply claimed that the Dogon learned about Sirius from the two French anthropologists, which makes sense. We all know that there’s nothing anthropologists like to talk about more than astronomy. That’s why they became anthropologists: so that they could teach astronomy to primitive people. But seriously, none of the critics ever make a statement like “It stands to reason that Griaule and Dieterlen would have told the Dogon about Sirius because…” Because there is no reason that they would have discussed such things with primitive people, other than for them to commit fraud, which some claim is exactly what they did. Why they would do this is left to our imaginations. Their paper was only published in an anthropological journal, not the London Times or Newsweek. If they were perpetuating a hoax in the hope of becoming famous, they had a rotten plan and it failed miserably. It took an astronomer discovering their work by accident 26 years later for anyone to even notice them. We don’t even know if these two knew anything about Sirius. Did you before now? Neither did I until I read Wilson’s Cosmic Trigger. It’s not exactly common knowledge.

Numerous of their arguments are based on the same sort of speculation that they accuse Temple of, even though most of theirs is worse. They’ve come up with lots of mundane ways in which the Dogon could have learned about Sirius, but none of them have a shred of proof to back up their assertions. At least some of them are honest enough to admit as much.

The one argument that some have used to explain how this knowledge got into the hands of the Dogon is that there was a total solar eclipse that was visible in Mali in 1893. The area would have been full of amateur and professional astronomers there to observe it. No doubt some of these astronomy enthusiasts told the local population all about the latest news on Sirius. The problems with this idea make the mind reel.

NommoFirst, much of what the Dogon allegedly knew about Sirius wasn’t known to anyone at that time, or was only suspected. Next, there is the assumption that people who were there to witness a celestial event were eager to discuss a completely unrelated astronomical subject with the stone age locals. Finally, the one that borders on idiocy (and I’m being kind here), is the assumption that these two groups of people even could have discussed anything. Does anyone seriously believe that any of the Dogon people would speak the language of any of their foreign visitors? Does anyone seriously believe that any of these visiting astronomers spoke Dogon? Sure, I suppose that somebody could have found an interpreter if they looked hard enough, but why bother? Eclipses only last a few minutes. Most people were probably only there for a day. If anyone had wanted to talk, it probably would have been the Dogon, and probably the only question on their minds would be to find out why the sun had gone away in the middle of the afternoon.
