THE HU!!!!

    The oldest name for deity on the planet is "lost". It now lays buried and absorbed within 1000's of words and names for deity in books of theos and mythos. The oldest name for deity is not a name, and is one of the reasons why its lost. It is a SOUND, a singular sound in two parts. This sound is is uttered complete and fluid, both parts sounded as one. The sound according to ancient theos and mythos, is actually a "BREATH". Just as a breath is in two parts, inhalation and exhalation, the one cannot be separated from the other just as a persons inhalation and exhalation cannot be separated. The ancient egyptians described this sound in pictograph. Comprising of a WICK (H), a bird unperched (U), and a bird perched (U), the pictograph represents the first and supreme of ALL deities. Egyptian ancient cosmology claims the god "HU" spoke or rather 'breathed' the creation into existance. The ancient semitic form of the name of the hebrew deity YHWH was in fact written on the oldest cunneiform parchements and tablets as, HWH (see wikipedia) What it is, is a BAD translation of the egyptian HU (Huu) for the single fact that there is no word in hebrew for the word "AM" because the egyptian use of the word/letter "U" which is a bird, translates or means "TO BE" or rather "AM" and is the oldest representation of deity.



      Its the basis and symbol behind the concept of the 'holy spirit'. The word "AM" (yeh) used in the old testament of bible in the infamous passage with Moses (Ex 3:14) is a 100% FRAUDULENT construction. You will notice that ALL other words in hebrew for 'am' in the OT are italicized, which means THEY DO NOT EXIST IN THE ORIGINAL. They are ENGLISH words added into hebrew text!!!! Put simply, there is NO WORD "AM" IN HEBREW. In hebrew, the phrase I AM THAT I AM  is falsely translated to EYEH ASHER EYEH which is absolutely incorrect and FRAUDULENT because as was said, there is no "AM" in hebrew, thus the hebrew word "eyeh" is a complete fabrication. What it is, is a bad translation of the BABYLONIAN god "EA" which when sounded in hebrew, sounds like 'eyeh'. The hebrew tetragrmaton was NEVER LOST for the mere fact and reason that it was NEVER FOUND to begin with. It is a corruption, a rendition, an attempt at translating or deciphering the name "HUU" (sometimes 'huh') which according to ancient esoteric tradition, is the LOST "WORD". The egyptian god 'Hu' was known as the WORD of god and in egyptian mythos, the god THOTH was associated with HU.

EGYPTIAN = H U H or H U U
HEBREW = H W H or H W W

In the egyptian hieroglyphics for HU, a bird is perched and non perched representing BEGINING and ENDING. Two acts by one........"AM".........or "to be". This name HU is represented by the vedic......"AUM"............a sound, a mantra. The egyptian god HU has been transmitted down through the sumerian "ENKI" and the babylonian "EA" and ends in the bible with what we know as FATHER & SON. The egyptian word/name/sound HU is also found in sanskrit because the egyptians ARE INDIANS, thats where they originate. The name "HU" is leavened throughout the entire old testament in hebrew. Found over 6000 times in its distinct form, the hebrew word for "HE" is in fact the sanskrit/egyptian word......"HU". We are called HU-MANS which means "man of hu" showing the ancient egyptian origin from theos of our scientific designation. During passover, jews will sing a sedar 'hymn' called "ADIR HU" meaning "HE or rather HU is mighty". In fact, the name "HE" used for god in the OT is the egyptian god.....HU!!!!.As well in Ex.3:14, any rabbi will tell you the phrase in hebrew is not spoken in the 'present' tense. The phrase I AM THAT I AM is rather spoken as I WILL BE WHAT I WILL BE and its correctly spoken in the FUTURE tense!. Thus what is supposed to be the premiere esoteric epithet for deity and its use throughout the entire bible and its application to Jesus Christ is COMPLETLY FRAUDULENT!. The concept known as the "trinity" is to be found in the ancient worlds oldest name/sound for deity.....HUU (huh, sounding like 'Hoooooo). All tri-phonetic constructs for names in the bible are based on this LOST word/sound (Is-Ra-EL etc). Its in second Isaiah in the OT (ch 40 to 66) that we see how the phrase "I AM" is to be constructed. Correctly in the hebrew, the phrase in those chapters..... I AM HE.........are correctly translated in the hebrew......ANI (I) HU (HE)..........or rather in plain english, I HE because as has already been established, THERE IS NO WORD "AM" IN HEBREW!!!!. Thus the complete concept of the phrase "I AM" and that I AM THAT I AM is 100%.........BOGUS!. It should correctly be I HE THAT I HE and that word correctly translated I HU THAT I HU!!!!. Thus, you can now see how "HU" is the LOST WORD or rather according to the egyptians, the lost WORD OF GOD. HU is lost because there is no longer any point reference TODAY as to what and who HU is as "HU" was an astronomical allignment that took place 16,000 years ago!.


HU is a "giant constellation" that appeared on the horizon in 14000 bc, appeared for less then a couple hundred years, THEN DISSAPEARED to the ancient egyptians and has not been seen since. HU "spoke" and ORION/OSIRIS came forth from its MOUTH. By the time of the middle kingdom in egypt, HU and its theology was absorbed into the mythos of OSIRIS HORUS ISIS.

HU IS THE "FIRST GOD" OF ALL GODS ON THIS PLANET AND THATS A FACT! ALL OF YOUR SEMITIC GODS ARE VARIANTS!

"GODS" begin and end with HU and thats a fact. Go look up the name GOD itself and you will find its.....HU!. The hebrew name for Jesus has HU in it (yesHUa). In the bible when it says "I AM HE" as god talking in the first person, its saying I AM "HU"!!!. HU is the 'creator' god the father god of the bible is fashioned from!. And in 14000 bc, HU in the sky in the form of a giant constellation, opened his mouth and ORION came out!. The precise timing of the act in total? ONE SINGLE DAY, July 4th 14000 bc. Only during this 24 hour period in all of history, did this astronomical allignment take place and it never has SINCE. On that day, the sun arose and set in precisely 12hrs, with this astronomical allignment perfectly placed on the egyptian horizon at gizeh. it was then translated INTO STONE. The "sphinx" is the constellation "HU" and its act of creation 16000 years ago. Their is another reason why HU and his mythology disapeared and was absorbed in time. After the witnessing of HU by the ancient egyptians of 16000 years, they also experienced and witnessed what the ancients called THE GOLDEN AGE or ZEP TEPE (first time). 14000bc would place the earth just entering perhelion with Sirius, the begining of the golden age roughly. HU is sometimes represented as TWO SNAKES on ancient hieroglyphs, representing the two parts of the 'breath' of 'hu'. THE BIBLICAL GOD IS "HU" IN VARIOUS WRAPPERS!. Its the 'word' of god incarnating into JESUS/HORUS. The old testament "I AM" is "I HU"


De 32:39  See now that I, even I, -- HU, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

Isa 41:4  Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I -- HU.




Isa 43:10  Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I -- HU: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.

Isa 43:13  Yea, before the day was I -- HU; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?

Isa 43:25  I, even I, -- HU that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.

Isa 46:4  And even to your old age I -- HU; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.

Isa 48:12  Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I -- HU; I -- the first, I also -- the last.

Isa 51:12  I, even I, -- HU that comforteth you: who art thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass;

Isa 52:6  Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I -- HU that doth speak: behold, it is I.

THIS IS GOD! - Pt.4

Washington, Tyne-Wear, England
What's in a Name?


Ancient Egyptians and the Constellations: Part 21

* * *
"Aa's frum Weshin'ton"
         Have you ever wondered how Washington got its name or why the original Washington Village is situated where it is? It is from the name itself that we derive the answer.
         The name comes in a multiple of varieties: for example Washington, Weshington, Wessington, and Wessynton. Locally we pronounce it Weshin'ton … "Aa's frum Weshin'ton." For our purposes let us refer to the Wessington version.
         "Wessington" can be broken down into two separate words: "Wessing" and "ton". By analysing the meaning of these two words we learn that the name accurately describes the natural landform of the original Village area before settlement.
         "Wesing" is an old Anglo-Saxon word meaning "soaking" or "steeping". The modern German noun equivalent is "Wasser" meaning "water". The Modern English noun equivalent is "water" and "wash". A wash is a body of water; as in The Wash on the East Coast. In addition however both words are linked with making clean, both physically and spiritually. Water is an accepted symbol for the Word of God.
         Today it is difficult to imagine The Village awash with water but let us not forget the old sandpit in the Glebe area which indicates the presence of a large body of water in the past. There was another sandpit down The Dene.
sandpit

The Sandpit opposite the Washington Village Cemetery

         When the waters receded the land would have been at first "soaking" underfoot. The final remnant of the "wash" was the Village Pond, which is now filled in and referred to as the Village Green. I wonder what treasures lie metres deep under the Village Green.

         If you take a close look at the lie of the land around The Village, you will notice that even today the location of the Village Pond is a natural drainage area. The Home Bank (now called The Avenue), Village Lane, Spout Lane and Glebe Crescent as far as Glebe Mount, all drain down naturally into the area known as The Green.

         "Ton" at the end of a place name does not, as many people mistakenly believe, refer to an early form of the word "town". Nor does it necessarily refer to a "homestead". Rather it is another form of the old Anglo-Saxon word "torr" meaning "a prominent hill". "Torr" is a version of the Hebrew "tur" meaning "round tower" in the form of a mountain. Our English word "turret" is derived from this. At the end of a place name "tor" and "ton" take on an added significance; they both mean "a holy hill".
         There is only one holy hill in Washington Village and that is the one upon which the Holy Trinity Church stands.

The Holy Trinity Church at Washington Village:
The Church on the Hill
         And so the name Washington / Wessington literally describes its natural features at three stages of development:
  • A holy hill initially surrounded by water.
  • A holy hill surrounded by land which was a quagmire underfoot as the waters receded.
  • A holy hill situated next to a pond as the land dried out.

This is not the end of the story however …

Washington Village and the Druids
         "Ton" at the end of a place name not only denotes a "holy hill", it denotes a holy hill which was sacred to Venus and which was of special significance to the Druids.
         Venus, although a planet, is referred to by astronomers as "The Evening and Morning Star". The idea being portrayed is that of Death and Rebirth. This confirms that Death and Rebirth, or Resurrection, were central to the Druid religious philosophy; as they were to that of the Ancient Egyptians.
         Tradition tells us that the person who is responsible for introducing religion and culture to Britain was the Celt/Druid Hesus. In this, his role was not unlike that of Osiris, who was the source of all knowledge in Ancient Egypt. (See Part 3)
         The connection with ancient Egypt however does not end here. Hesus was also known as Hu. (See Part 2) His very name Hesus/Hu, together with his role, embodies the Sacred Knowledge of the Ancient Egyptians … that of Hu the Celestial Sphinx, Creation, and the Precession of the Equinoxes.(See Parts 1-13)
sphinx
Hu, the Celestial Sphinx

         Druid mythology relates that Hesus/Hu was fathered by God and born of a virgin mother, Mayence in the 9th century BC. He was later crucified but his soul survived after Death. Sound familiar?
         It was upon the "holy hill" that the Druids held an annual ceremony in which they re-enacted the crucifixion of Hesus. This was called the Beltane Festival.
         In Washington Village this ceremony could only have been held on the current site of the Holy Trinity Church.

         In the Beltane ritual ceremony Hesus/Hu was crucified on an oak tree which was symbolic of the Tree of Life.
         Imagine the scene at "Wesington" two millennia and more in the past … a sturdy oak tree standing atop a holy hill which was possibly still surrounded by water. It was a sacred island; a sacred mound. The present day site of the Holy Trinity Church was, and still is, a sacred mound. A "holy hill" is another way of saying "sacred mound".

The Tree of Life and Washington Village
         In mythology the Tree of Life grew out of the Sacred Mound, it's branches reaching out and supporting the star and planet studded sky, while it's roots reached down into the watery abyss of the Netherworld. The trunk of the Tree of Life represented the World Pillar or Axis Munde (literally "Axis of the Mound") around which the heavens appeared to revolve. The World Pillar was the centre of the universe.
         Similarly, the Sacred Oak on the Sacred Mound at Washington Village was a world pillar representing the centre of the universe.

oak

The Sacred Oak Tree was a World Pillar
which represented the Centre of the Universe.

         The earliest reference to the concept of the Tree of Life is to be found in the philosophy of the Ancient Egyptians. They explained the origin of the universe in terms of a primordial ocean called Nun. It wasn't flat; rather it was in the shape of a cosmic egg … and from this cosmic egg was born the primeval hill called Nu. Of the Tree of Life is written, "I am the plant which comes from Nu."

         The key elements of the landscape at Washington Village before settlement are identical to those outlined in Ancient Egyptian cosmology! Sacred water, a sacred mound and a sacred tree.

         The Ancient Egyptian symbol for "plant" meaning "Tree of Life" was three sacred lotus lilies. They have tree stems curving to the left as though blown by the easterly wind; and on top of each stem is the Lotus flower. The glyph which denotes the sacred knowledge associated with Hesus is also formed by the three stems of the three sacred lotus lilies.

The Egyptian hieroglyph
for "plant" meaning "Tree

The glyph which denotes
the sacred knowledge of
Hesus is also derived
from the sacred lotus.


         In the Ancient Egyptian hieroglyph for the Tree of Life we have a direct link from the Ancient Egyptians, down through Hesus, to the people who re-enacted the crucifixion of Hesus at Washington Village.


         When Hesus was crucified upon the Tree of Life he metaphorically became as one with the Tree. Just as Osiris became one with the tamarisk tree in which he was encased (See Part 6) so Hesus/Hu became as one with the oak tree. Both Osiris and Hesus/Hu were representative of the Axis Munde around which the heavens appear to revolve; they were representative of the World Pillar, the link between the terrestrial and the celestial worlds. They held the heavens in their outstretched arms, and they soaked up the Word of God from the waters of the Netherworld. In Ancient Egypt the Netherworld was called the "Netterworld" meaning the "World of the gods". The gods had their home among the stars.
The Beltane Festival
         The Beltane Festival which was celebrated at Washington Village two millennia and more ago, was also known as "the bringing down of the sun". This is a reference to an astronomical event, which occurred on September 21st 4468BCE when the Autumn (Fall) Equinox of the Sun was in conjunction with the Milky Way.
         This conjunction initialized the movement of the Sun out of the Age of Leo/Gemini and into the Age of Taurus. This event which is known as Precession of the Equinoxes is recorded on the Ancient Egyptian Narmer Plate dated 4468BC.
         The bonfires which were lit to celebrate the Beltane Festival on old May Day at Washington Village represented the Sun passing from one Age of the Zodiac into the next. (See Part 9 to Part 15)
         Although it was from the Ancient Egyptians that the Sacred Knowledge encoded into the Beltane Festival originated, it was from the Ancient Babylonian god Bel, circa 2200BC, that the Beltane Festival practised at Washington Village derived its name. Babylon was a daughter civilization of Ancient Egypt.
         "Bel" is translated with the titles "Lord" and "Baal". "Baal" is sometimes represented as "Ba-al" or "Ba-el". "Ba-el" means "Gate of God" and was associated with the Bull. "Al" is also the origin of the name Allah, God of the Mohammedans.

Ancient Egyptian Narmer Plate, 4468BC

         Statues of Baal show him in the stance of the Constellation of Orion and wearing the White Crown of Egypt, attached to which is a Bull's lug. The Baal cult was associated with the bull. His story is recounted in the Baal Myth, which concerns a crisis in the Autumn Equinox. He was the god who died and rose again. Unfortunately as the original meaning of his myth (see below) was lost he became the seasonal god of vegetation, dying in the Autumn and having his resurrection in the Spring. This resulted in the Beltane Festival being held in Spring instead of Autumn. A Spring resurrection displays a total misunderstanding of the original stellar myth. It was from this god that the name Beltane is derived.
         From Baal and Bel is derived the English word "Bull". The Beltane Festival is the Bull Festival; the celebration of the Dawning of the Age of Taurus in September 4468BC. The words "Bel", "Baal" and "Lord" are interchangeable. Indeed the words "Bel", "Baal", "Bull" and "Lord" are interchangeable. The Lord Baal, the Lord Bel and the Lord were all references to the Bull in the Age of Taurus when he reigned supreme in the Ages of the Equinoxes.
         Similarly "The Lord" during the Age of Aries was the Ram. This is why there are so many references to the family of the Ram in the Old Testament. "The Lord" during the Age of Pisces, which is soon coming to a close, is the Fish. This explains the allusions to Fish in Christianity.
         Druid mythology relates that Hesus/Hu was fathered by God and born of a virgin mother, Mayence in the 9th century BC. He was later crucified but his soul survived after Death.
         In the light of this Precession Myth, Jesus could only have one means of death in order to fulfil his role as the new Hesus … Crucifixion on the Tree of Life; an event which is recalled every Easter and in some parts of the world even re-enacted. Not surprisingly Saint Patrick was easily able to make converts from the Druid to the Christian religion. Hesus' Virgin Mother Mayence, also known as Maire, was substituted with the Christian Virgin Mary while Hesus and his crucifixion were substituted with the Christian Jesus and his crucifixion. It was during the Middle Ages that the letter "H" was replaced by the letter "J". The Beltane Festival, originally held on the old May Day, was replaced by Easter.
         In reality Christianity was the up-dated, Jerusalem-based version of Druidism. A new-look for a New Age of Pisces … and still the original Sacred Knowledge of the Ancient Egyptians concerning the Precession of the Equinoxes continued to be misinterpreted and misunderstood.

         A similar conversion eventually took place at Washington Village. The oak tree on the holy hill, the Mound, was cut down and a Christian church was built in its stead.

The Church on the Hill.

(Note: The origin of the crucifixion legends together with the personification of the Axis Munde is recorded in the Ancient Egyptian Myth of Osiris which can be found in Part 6. More information on the Hesus/Jesus connection can be found in Part 15.)

The Beltane Festival, which was celebrated at Washington Village two millennia and more ago, arrived from remote Ancient Egypt via Ancient Babylon and Syria. With the advent of Christianity the Beltane Festival was eventually replaced by Easter.

The Beltane Festival and Precession.
         The Beltane Festival and the re-enactment of the crucifixion on the Tree of Life at Washington Village two millennia ago had been practised for at least four and a half thousand years prior to that time in remote Ancient Egypt.
         The Festival had its roots in Ancient Egypt, but the Ancient Babylonians and Ancient Syrians later practised it, despite misinterpreting the message.
         The Beltane Festival was a re-enactment of the bringing down of the Sun at the close of the Age of Gemini, and its subsequent rising in the Age of Taurus.
         The prime concern of the Festival was to celebrate the Precession of the Equinoxes. The secondary concern was to celebrate the Precession of the Ages of the Zodiac in general.
         The Sacred Secret of Precession was known only to the initiated few who were the Guardians of the Secret. The uninitiated misinterpreted the symbolism … until now.

Children of the Pyramids
 
         Today we are the Children of the Pyramids. From Pyramids to pit heaps we are the heirs to the Lost Secrets of the Pharaohs of Remote Ancient Egypt. The pit heaps, which were plentiful in Washington thirty-five years ago, were like the echo of a collective memory.
         The Ancient Egyptians discovered the secret of Precession. They mapped the heavens. They were the Guardians of Time and we are their children.

George Washington: The First President of the United States of America
         Washington Village, Tyne-Wear, is renowned the world over as the ancestral home of George Washington, the First President of the United States of America. His great-grandfather, Colonel John Washington, emigrated to Virginia in 1656 from Sulgrave Manor in Northamptonshire. The Washington family relocated to Sulgrave Manor from Washington Manor, via Westmoreland, Lancashire and Warwickshire, in the early to mid sixteenth century.

The Washington Old Hall

         The Washington family name was inherited from the name of the property of which the family assumed ownership in 1183. The Ancestor of George Washington who assumed ownership of the lands of Washington was William de Hertburn. He was a knight whose ancestors fought alongside William the Conqueror. He was not English; he was of Norman descent. Hertburn Gardens is named after him. The Washington lands previously belonged to the Bishop of Durham but he exchanged them for the Hertburn lands in Stockton. This is how William of Hertburn became known as William of Washington.
         The first stone manor house on the site of the present Old Hall was probably built shortly after the Battle of Shadon's Hill in 1068 when the people of the North revolted against William the Conqueror. Shadon's Hill stands at the Washington- Springwell entrance to Eighton Banks. My dad's side of the family, the Hall family, lived at Eighton Banks. It is a very old surname and there is a good chance that my ancestors fought against William the Conqueror at the Battle of Shadon's Hill.

Shadon's Hill stands at the Washington / Springwell entrance to Eighton Banks.
         After the Battle of Shadon's Hill it would be logical that William would install one of his fellow countrymen in a nearby locality to quell the natives and prevent further insurrections. Washington Village would have been the ideal location.
         Certainly the stone manor house was built in the Norman architectural style. The stone archways between the current kitchen and the Great hall evidence this. The present Washington Old Hall was built in the early 1600's on top of the original Norman foundations.

         The Coat of Arms adopted by William de Wassington reflects his position and status of a knight. It comprises three red five-pointed stars and two red banners, in the horizontal position, on a white background. Originally however the background was silver. Heraldry in the form of standards dates back to the Ancient Egyptians as early as 4468BC. (See Part 12) The introduction of heraldry into England is credited to William I after the Norman Conquest of 1066. Originally the shields are believed to have been a single colour but as the custom grew more popular a second colour was introduced. The very early composition of the Washington Coat of Arms is reflected in its use of only two colours.
coat of arms
coat of arms
The Washington Coat of Arms
In its original form:
argent, two bar and in
chief three mullets gules.
In its current form:
white, two bar and in
chief three mullets red.

         There were certain basic rules which had to be followed in the design of an emblazonment. Metal must not be set upon metal; for example a gold star on a silver background was forbidden. A colour must not be assigned on top of another colour; for example red upon white was forbidden. The metal and the colour must be incorporated into the design. Over the centuries yellow and white replaced the gold and silver.
         There is a unique heraldic vocabulary which is used to describe a Coat of Arms. With reference to the Washington crest:
  • The background is called "the field".
  • The stripes are called "the charges".
  • The two stripes in the horizontal position are referred to as a "two bar" design. Forty years ago and more these stripes were referred to locally as "banners".
  • The upper section of the shield, or field, is called "the chief".
  • The three stars in the chief are "the secondary charges".
  • A five-pointed star is called "a mollet" or "mullet" because it resembles the rowel of a spur. A rowel is a spiked disk on a spur, used to urge on the horse to victory. It is also a piece of hair or leather with a hole in it which is placed under a horse's skin to discharge pus. The 14th century Coat of Arms of William de Wassington has three pierced mullets. Combining these two meanings the mullet signifies Endurance and Purification, or taken one step further, Endurance to achieve Purification. Having thus distinguished himself the candidate "won his spurs": he was made a knight.
  • The white field was originally silver, and is referred to as "argent".
  • The red of the charges and secondary charges is referred to as "gules", which comes from the Latin meaning "ermine, dyed red". Ermine, the white winter fur of the stoat, signifies Peerage, Judgement and Purity.
         In heraldic terms the Washington Coat of Arms was created soon after the Norman Conquest of 1066. This is borne out by the fact that only argent and gules were used in its composition. The field is argent, and the two bar charge is gules. The secondary charge in the chief, comprising three mullets, is also gules.
         Expressed in its most precise terms the Washington Coat of Arms is described as: argent, two bar and in chief three mullets gules. The intrinsic meaning is "Endurance to achieve Purification. Winning one's spurs and becoming a knight, a member of the Peerage. As a member of the peerage the knight can sit in Judgement because he himself is considered to be Pure."
         The Washington family took great pride in their heritage, such that when they emigrated to America they retained their family crest. As a result, when George Washington, who was a prominent Freemason, became the First President of the United States, it was the Washington Coat of Arms which was adopted as the basis of the American flag. Expressed in everyday language the red banners on the white background were retained, but the red stars on a white background were replaced with white stars on a blue background. The stars and banners of Washington Village became the "Stars and Stripes" of the leading world power!

Commemoration of the USA/ Washington Connection
         The USA connections with Washington Village are commemorated in many ways. For example:
  • in hanging a portrait of George Washington both inside the Library and outside "The Washington Arms" at the Village Green;

The march-past of the Washington Greys in 1977 drew big crowds.
  • and in the celebration of American Independence Day on July 4th every year at the Washington Old Hall.
         The Fourth of July celebrations in 1987 were exceptional. Members of the US forces were the focal point of the day as they performed the Raising of the Flag ceremony.

         Moreover, if you look at the representation of the Ages of the Zodiac in the bottom panel of Side Two of the plate you will notice that the twelve Ages of the Sun are represented. Three are in the past, one is about to occur, and the eight still attached to the Zodiac are yet to occur.

         From this encoded information we are able to work out the beginning of the First Age of the Ancient Egyptians in this cycle. (The Giant's apron is clearly the original Freemasonic apron; even down to the tassels! From this it could be argued that the Giant Nermer/Osiris/Orion, was the first Freemason.)

         Working backwards and allowing 2160 years for each Age, we are able to date the beginning of the Ancient Egyptian civilization in this cycle.

Fourth Age …… Age of Taurus …… dawned in 4468 BCE
Third Age …… Age of Gemini …… dawned in 6628 BCE
Second Age …… Age of Cancer …… dawned in 8788 BCE
First Age …… Age of Leo …… dawned in 10948 BCE

         The question arises as to why the Age of Leo was chosen by the Ancient Egyptians as the First Age when clearly the Ancient Egyptians regarded Hu, the Celestial Sphinx, as the giver of Life in the Beginning. The answer lies in the New Beginning following the gradual Fall of Hu from his majestic position on the horizon in 14000BCE. (Part 5)
         It could be argued that technically the New Beginning should have started at the Dawn of the Age of Virgo in 13108BCE. Why wait until the Dawn of the Age of Leo in 10948BCE for the New Beginning? Was it perhaps because Virgo was female? Initially I would have suggested that this was not the case because the Ancient Egyptians represented the heavens in the female form: that of Nut, the Sky Goddess. However it must be remembered that Hu, the Celestial Sphinx and Creator, was male … as evidenced by his Osiris Beard. Moreover the heavens which Hu created were impregnated into the body of Nut. The female was clearly subordinate to the male, and her purpose was one of childbearing. Hu represented the Male Principle while Virgo and Nut represented the Female Principle. (See also Part 2 and Part 6)
         There is an additional, and perhaps more straight forward reason why Leo was chosen over Virgo as the First Age. By 13108BCE the Celestial Sphinx had not fallen sufficiently below the horizon at Giza for a New Age to be even considered. However by 10948BCE the Ancient Egyptians had lost their affiliation with Hu. The Celestial Sphinx no longer had the same relevance in their lives as he had had for their ancestors.

         Hu had fallen from his perch; he belonged to a bygone Age. Hu rose to dominance, reigned supreme, and fell from power during the Zodiacal Season of the Eagle (Scorpio), encompassing the Ages of the Eagle (Scorpio), Libra and Virgo. By 10948BCE the Ancient Egyptians were ready for, and needed, a New Beginning, a new God … a new Hu.
         Because of the similarity between the leonine Hu and the Constellation of Leo, Hu was resurrected in the new guise of the Constellation of Leo, at the beginning of the next Zodiacal Season. The Age of Leo was the First Age to follow the unopposed reign of Hu, the Celestial Sphinx.

A new Hu for a new Zodiacal Season:
Hu was resurrected in the guise of Leo.
         It made sense at the time but down through the millennia it was to cause utter confusion for later generations, as the original Secret of Hu became lost. (See Part 2)
         The Sphinx at Giza was no longer considered to be the earthly representation of Hu, God the Creator, the Celestial Sphinx. Rather, the Sphinx at Giza came to represent the Constellation of Leo, the substituted deity.
         On the earlier sky charts of the lost Constellation of Hu, the Celestial Sphinx, he appears to face towards the West. In contrast, the Constellation of Leo appears to face towards the East. This is an optical illusion. Also Hu is clearly a picture, as to a certain extent is Leo the Pussy Cat. Leo the Lion however is a representation.
         Further contributing to the confusion, Hu's title "Giver of Life in the Beginning" was usurped by Osiris.
hu
Hu: Giver of Life in the Beginning.
This title was usurped by Osiris.


         In the hieroglyphs for Hu's title "Giver of Life in the Beginning" the Lion, the Hemisphere, and the Pillar denote "the Beginning". (See Part 2)
         These three hieroglyphs of the Lion, the hemisphere and the Pillar are a "Treasure Map" which discloses that there is a pillar and a cavern beneath the Sphinx. Concerning the Pillar, according to tradition knowledge from a previous Age is recorded on a Pillar so that the knowledge is not lost. The Pillar should not be difficult to find since its location is clearly indicated on the set of three hieroglyphs! Concerning the Cavern, that is probably where the Lost Secrets of Hu are stored for posterity.
         Having said that, remember that the Pillar can primarily be considered in terms of the Axis Munde, the Hemisphere in terms of the Mound and the Lion in terms of Hu, the Celestial Sphinx … all of which encode the Sacred Knowledge of Creation and the Precession of the Equinoxes. The Hall of Records can be found in the heavens. (See Part 1) The "Treasure Map" indicates that there is a physical Hall of Records beneath the Giza Sphinx in addition to the Celestial Hall of Records.
         Thoth was the Keeper of the Secrets, the Keeper of the Records.. It will be recalled that in the Osiris Legend (See Part 4) Osiris was Thoth's master, and in this capacity, having usurped the role of Hu, he was both God and the source of all knowledge in Ancient Egypt. Moreover, in the same legend, Osiris was personified as a Pillar. It was Thoth, who was credited with having introduced all the arts and sciences, including astronomy and hieroglyphs, to the Ancient Egyptians
thoth
Thoth: the Keeper of the Secrets

         However the Secrets of the arts, sciences, astronomy and hieroglyphics were not for the commoner to know about or understand because these were considered to be the ultimate Sacred Subjects, whose Sacred Secrets were fit only for the ears of the elite in remote Ancient Egypt.
         Throughout all civilizations Knowledge has been considered Sacred and as such it was made available only to the elite few. It was no different in, for example, England … until about a hundred years ago, when education was made available to the masses.

Sacred Knowledge
         The First Age of Leo, dawning on June 21st 10948BCE, is an example of the Sacred Knowledge pertaining to the Precession of the Equinoxes. In the Calendar Year of the Ages of the Zodiac the First Age of Leo dawned on the Summer Solstice. Almost six and a half thousand years later, on September 21st 4468BCE, the Fourth Age of Taurus dawned on the Autumn Equinox.
         The Winter Equinox in this Precession of the Ages of the Zodiac is due to occur on December 21st 2012. The Sun will rise on this Winter morning to herald in the New Age of Aquarius.

Eleventh Age … ... Age of Libra … … dawns in 10652 AD  
Twelfth Age … … Age of Virgo … … dawns in 12812 AD  

         Looking at this Precessional Cycle of the Equinoxes the "three in one" concept becomes clear. Within each "Season" there are three Ages. Within each "Season" there is a "Trinity" or "Triad of Ages".

         Clearly the prime concern of the remote Ancient Egyptians was the Precession of the Equinoxes, and with meticulous care they encoded the information on to the Narmer Plate.

         For those readers who may still have their doubts that the Ancient Egyptians were responsible for the creation of the constellations in the night skies, the Great Architect of the Universe left his signature of the catfish and the chisel! Nermer was the Great Architect of the Universe.

         All of the evidence points to the Ancient Egyptians being the progenitors of civilization. They discovered the Great Secret of Precession and its associated geometry. Moreover they invented hieroglyphs, cuneiform writing and mythology as a vehicle for perpetuating and concealing Secrets. They determined 360 degrees in a circle and created the twelve signs of the Zodiac, each of 30 degrees. The remote Ancient Egyptians created the constellations of our night sky as their legacy … lest their Sacred Knowledge, their Secrets, be lost.
nermer plate

The Nermer Plate: encoding divisions of 30 degrees


         The Ancient Egyptians' knowledge of geometry and Precession is clearly demonstrated on the Nermer Plate. The centre point is the tip of the White Leo/Gemini Crown. Line One is through the Club. Line Two bisects the Crown. This creates four angles each of 90 degrees. Line Three is the horizontal at the tip of the Crown. Line Four is the vertical through the tip of the Crown. Already the formation of angles of 30 degrees can be observed. The tip of the White Leo/Gemini Crown becomes a dot within a circle; the Ancient Egyptian hieroglyph for Ra and the concept of Precession. It is the pinnacle of the Axis Munde around which the heavens appear to revolve. (See Part 5) A revolution through the heavens of twelve 30-degree segments can take one year or, in the case of Precession of the Ages of the Zodiac, 25920 years. The division of the heavens into twelve 30-degree segments gives the appearance of a starburst. A further division into 15-degree segments creates the 24-hour day. 


The Narmer Plate, Baal and the Beltane Festival

Ancient Egyptians and the Constellations: Part 15

* * *
From Egypt to Syria: The Beltane Festival
         The Syrian counterpart of the Giant Nermer/Osiris/Orion was Baal. It will be remembered that in the Osiris Myth the chest in which Osiris had been borne down the Nile eventually came to rest on the Phoenician Coast in Syria, and that the Phoenicians were also known by the more familiar title of Canaanites. (See Part 4) As was noted, this was a later insert to illustrate that the Ancient Egyptian culture was adopted by the Phoenicians when Phoenicia was brought under Egyptian control. Syria was a daughter culture of the Ancient Egyptians and legend recalls that the earliest inhabitants of Canaan were a race of Giants.
         Statues of Baal show him in the stance of the Giant Orion/Nermer/Osiris and wearing the Leo/Gemini Crown. His relationship to the Giant on the Nermer Plate is clearly evident. In the Canaanite Stele on the left, dated around 1800BCE, Nermer/Orion/Baal has acquired a third arm to accommodate the man with the axe who has adopted the position of the Gemini Twin. In his left hand Nermer/Orion/Baal is holding the Tree of Life in place of Orion's Bow. The Water of Life, Nun, is illustrated beneath his feet. What appears to be a leaf attached to his Crown is in fact a bull's ear, representative of the Dawn of the Age of Taurus which was previously celebrated on the Narmer Plate. The people of Canaan were clearly aware of the symbolism but they were unable to interpret the esoteric meaning. They lost the plot!

         The Baal Cult was associated with the Bull. Baal's story is recounted in the Baal Myth, which concerns a crisis in the Autumn Equinox. He was the god who died and rose again. Clearly this is a reference to the Dawning of the Age of Taurus on September 21st 4468BCE (using the Gregorian Calendar).
         Unfortunately, as the original Sacred meaning of his myth was lost Baal became the seasonal god of vegetation, dying in the Autumn and having his resurrection in the Spring. This resulted in the Beltane Festival being held in Spring instead of Autumn. A Spring resurrection displays a total misunderstanding of the original stellar myth. (It was from the god Baal that the name Beltane is derived. More on this later.)

As the original Sacred meaning of Baal's myth was lost

The Beltane Festival: From Egypt to Syria … via Babylon.
         Not only was the Ancient Egyptian culture readily assimilated by the Phoenicians, so too was that of Sumeria. The result was not only a fusion of cultural beliefs, but also confusion, which resulted in the loss of the original meaning of the Baal Myth.
         The god Bel, from whom the Beltane Festival derives its name, was the Ancient Babylonian counterpart of the Syrian Baal.
         "Bel" is translated with the titles "Lord" and "Baal". "Baal" is sometimes represented as "Ba-al". Babylon was a village in c2230BCE when Ur was a city. "Babylon", is the Greek rendition of the Hebrew word "Babel", and is translated as both "Confusion" and "Gate of Bel".
         The "Confusion" aspect is recalled in the story associated with the Tower of Babel and the confusion of languages. The following will explain the confusion.
         "Gate of Bel" translates as "Gate of the god Bel". Originally however, it would seem that Bel was not the name of the god. "Ba-bel" was confused with "Bab-il". They both sounded the same when spoken, as in the English word "babble", but when written down the name of the god was changed, with the result that the god "il" became known as the god "bel". Or perhaps it happened the other way round! "Ba-al" and "Ba-il" are one and the same, and "Bel" would appear to be a diminutive of these. However "El" is the Hebrew word for "God". "Ba-el" means "Gate of God" and "Bel" is also a diminutive of this. Like Baal and Bel, El was also associated with the bull. "Al", "il" and "el" are all references to the same god. The god "il" appears in the Mesopotamian legend of the Flood, the Gilgamesh Epic, as the Great God Enlil. "En" means "god". In a later group of Mesopotamian gods, Enlil was relegated to Lord of the Wind, and Lord of the Mountain. In Ancient Egypt the "Ba" was the Soul.
         Certainly our English word "babble" is indicative of the confusion. People do tend to babble on sometimes: "Babble on … Babylon"! Moreover a babbler is a person who tells secrets.
         The confusion was a deliberate attempt to maintain secrecy. It was a hoax, a jest, a whole load of bull! The truth is that from Baal and Bel is derived the English word "Bull". The Beltane Festival is the Bull Festival; the celebration of the Dawning of the Age of Taurus! The words "Bel", "Baal" and "Lord" are interchangeable. Indeed the words "Bel", "Baal", "Bull" and "Lord" are interchangeable. The Lord Baal, the Lord Bel and the Lord were all references to the Bull in the Age of Taurus when he reigned supreme in the Ages of the Equinoxes.
         Similarly "The Lord" during the Age of Aries was the Ram. This is why there are so many references to the family of the Ram in the Old Testament. "The Lord" during the Age of Pisces, which is soon coming to a close, is the Fish. This explains the allusions to Fish in Christianity.
         In the confusion it is easy to overlook the other aspect of "Babel" as "Gate of Bel", "The Gate of God" or the "Gate of the Bull". This is a direct reference to the gateway, or opening, illustrated at the bottom of Side Two of the Narmer Plate, towards which the Bull is running. It was the Gateway to the New Age of Taurus.
taurus
"Babel" was the "Gate of Bel" … the "Gate of God".
"Babel" was the "Gate of the Bull" …
the gateway to the New Age of Taurus.
         The very word "Babel" encodes the concept of Precession: the Precession of the Ages of the Zodiac, and in particular the Precession of the Equinoxes of the Zodiac. This was the secret that the Ancient Babylonians sought to maintain: the secret which had been passed down to them from their progenitors, the remote Ancient Egyptians.
         The Tower of Babel was the Ancient Babylonian equivalent of the much earlier Egyptian Pyramids, and as such it represented the Tree of Life: it was an Axis Munde. It also represented a mountain. Enlil was Lord of the Mountain. It was the Mound which rose from the Primordial Waters: the land which literally rose out of the Persian Gulf. It was a stairway to the stars and it pointed to the stars. It was the Gate of God; the opening to the Netherworld of the Ages of the Zodiac. Ancient Babylon was a daughter culture of Ancient Egypt.

         A humorous aside: The Bull Baal bellowed to the Bull Bel, "Bulls bellow in their belfry, while in another belfry bells in the shape of bulls' horns bellow".
Find twelve references to the Age of Taurus the Bull.
The Druids and the Beltane Festival
         The Beltane Festival was also known as "the bringing down of the Sun". This refers to the astronomical event, which occurred on September 21st 4468BCE when the Autumn (Fall) Equinox of the Sun was in conjunction with the Milky Way. This conjunction initialized the movement of the Sun out of the Age of Gemini and into the Age of Taurus. It is this example of Precession of the Equinoxes which is recorded on the Narmer Plate. It is the Sun's movement out of the Age of Gemini and into the Age of Taurus which accounts for the "Fire" and "Bonfire" aspects of the Beltane Festival.
         Tradition tells us that the person who is responsible for introducing religion and culture to Britain was the Celt/Druid Hesus. In this, his role was not unlike that of Osiris, who was the source of all knowledge in Ancient Egypt. (See Part 4) The connection with ancient Egypt however does not end here. Hesus was also known as Hu! (See Part 2)
         His very name Hesus/Hu, together with his role, embodies the Sacred Knowledge of the Ancient Egyptians … Hu, the Celestial Sphinx, the Creator and the Precession of the Equinoxes.(See Parts 1-14)

         Of special significance to the Celts/Druids were holy hills (Mound imagery) sacred to Venus. Venus, although a planet, is referred to by astronomers as the "Evening and Morning Star", the idea portrayed being of Death and Rebirth. This confirms that Death and Rebirth, or Resurrection, were central to the Druid religious philosophy; as they were to that of the Ancient Egyptians.
         Druid mythology relates that Hesus/Hu was crucified, that his soul survived after Death and that the period following his crucifixion was referred to as the "Golden Age".
         In the Beltane ritual ceremony Hesus/Hu was crucified on an oak tree which was symbolic of the Tree of Life. Just as Osiris became one with the tamarisk tree in which he was encased (See Part 6) so Hesus/Hu became as one with the oak tree. Both Osiris and Hesus/Hu were representative of the Axis Munde around which the heavens appear to revolve; they were representative of the World Pillar, the link between the terrestrial and the celestial worlds.

The Virgin Birth
         In the Druid religion Hesus/Hu was fathered by God and born of a virgin mother, Mayence. The fact that Mayence was recorded as having her body enveloped by light and wearing a crown of twelve stars on her head confirms that she was a representation of the Constellation of Coma Berenices; Berenice's Hair.

Coma Berenices lies within the zodiac sign of Virgo, the Virgin.
         Coma Berenices lies within the zodiac sign of Virgo, the Virgin, which is traditionally associated with Isis of Ancient Egypt, Ishtar of Ancient Babylon, Mayence of the Druids and the Virgin Mary.
         The twelve stars are a reference to the number of stars which comprise the constellation of Coma Berenices. Coma Berenices is in effect the head of Virgo. Mayence is also represented with her foot on a serpent. The serpent is the constellation of Hydra. An almost identical description of Mayence is recorded in Revelations 12 v 1.

"And there appeared a great wonder in heaven;
a woman clothed with the sun,
and the moon under her feet,
and upon her head a crown of twelve stars."
         Although the initial purpose of the Beltane Festival was to celebrate the Dawn of the Age of Taurus in 4468BCE, Hesus/Hu belonged to the Age of the Ram, when the Sun was in Aries. It could be argued therefore that the virgin birth of Hesus/Hu is in fact a myth to explain the movement of the Sun out of the sign of Taurus and into the sign of Aries … in other words a progression from the Age of Taurus to the Age of Aries. The Virgin Mother, Mayence, is the constellations of Virgo and Coma Berenices combined. The Father is God the Sun (like Ra in Ancient Egypt) in the Age of Taurus. The Child, Hesus/Hu, is the new-born Son/Sun of God in the Age of Aries. This is an example of the aforementioned Precession, the Lost Secret of the Ancient Egyptians. This particular type of Precession is referred to as The Precession of the Ages of the Zodiac.

The Holy Hill as a Star Observatory

         As well as the stage for the Beltane Festival the "holy hill" was also a platform from which to observe the stars. Hesus as already noted was also known as Hu.
         "Hu" is recorded in Anglo-Saxon as "hiw" and means "a loud shout". The term "hue and cry" is derived from this.
         A "Huer" was the name given to a person who was standing on a high point of land and who gave information on the movements of a shoal of fish. Hence Hu was the name given to the person who stood on a hill, observed and gave out information on the approach of the Age of Pisces.
pisces the fish
The Constellation of Pisces, the Fish.
The Age of Pisces
         Jesus belongs to the Age of the Fish, when the Sun is in Pisces. Like Hesus/Hu before him he was born of a Virgin Mother and a Heavenly Father. And also like Hesus/Hu before him, his virgin birth heralded (although belatedly) the Dawn of a New Age: the Age of Pisces. The same stellar imagery can be applied in both cases. The virgin birth of Jesus is in fact a myth to explain the movement of the Sun out of the Age of Aries (the Old testament) and into the Age of Pisces (the New Testament) … in other words a progression from the Age of Aries the Ram into the Age of Pisces the Fish.
         The Virgin Mother, Mary, is the constellations of Virgo and Coma Berenices combined. The Father is God the Sun in the Age of Aries. The Child, Jesus, is the new-born Son/Sun of God in the Age of Pisces. The play on the sound of the word "Sun" should not go unnoticed. This Precession Myth explains how God the Father and the Son of God are one and the same.

Like Mayence, the virgin mother of Hesus,
the Virgin Mary is the constellations of
Coma Berenices and Virgo combined.
As disclosed earlier, Coma Berenices is the head of Virgo.
 
         In the light of this Precession Myth, Jesus could only have one means of death in order to fulfil his role as the new Hesus/Hu … Crucifixion on the Tree of Life; an event which is recalled every Easter and in some parts of the world even re-enacted.
         It is not surprising that in Ireland, for example, Druids readily converted to the Christian religion. Mayence, also known as Maire, was substituted with the Christian Mary while Hesus and his crucifixion were substituted with the Christian Jesus and his crucifixion. It was during the Middle Ages that the letter "H" was replaced with the letter "J". The Beltane Festival, originally held on the old May Day, was replaced by Easter.
The oak tree on the holy hill, the Mound, was cut down
and a Christian church was built in its stead.

The Seventh Age: The Age of Aquarius
 
         Soon we will be entering the Age of Aquarius. According to the calculations of the Ancient Egyptians, this will be:

  • the Seventh Age
  • the Winter Equinox in the Precession of the Ages of the Zodiac
  • the beginning of a new Galactic Season
  • the beginning of a new Trinity or Triad of Ages
         The Age of Aquarius will dawn when the Winter Equinox in the Precession of the Ages of the Zodiac takes place at sunrise on the 21st of December 2012. The beginning of a New Age was considered to be a Process of Purification by the Ancient Egyptians. The Great Conjunction will occur when four celestial events in Time converge and synchronize. Time and co-ordination must be precise.

The Great Conjunction
marking the Dawn of The Age of Aquarius
at 6:48 am 21st December 2012
         The "Place of Purification" is actually recorded in the Ancient Egyptian "Book of the Dead" which contains religious ritual and is of cosmic significance.
abt
Abt: The Place of Purification
         The Ancient Egyptian hieroglyph, which resembles the rectangular base of a pyramid with an underground entrance, is the hieroglyph for "temple". Above this base are three horizontal rows of the symbol for "water" which is translated variably as Nu, Nun, Mau and Mu in Ancient Egyptian. This water hieroglyph represents both the Primordial Ocean of Nun, and also the Milky Way. Perhaps they are one and the same. The hemisphere above the water symbol represents both the Sacred Mound, Nu, rising out of the Waters of Nun, as well as the Sun rising out of the Waters of the Milky Way. A stylized Tree of Life, Axis Munde, in the form of the Mummy of Osiris drinking the Waters of Purification (the origin of the "Opening of the Mouth Ceremony" which was conducted upon the mummy of a deceased pharaoh) stands to our left of the three-tiered glyph. The head of the Mummy Osiris, represents the Sun while the Water of Life, or of Purification, represents the ecliptic along which the Sun appears to move across the heavens. That the Mummy is facing to the left indicates that the combined hieroglyph is meant to be read from left to right. From this double glyph meaning the "Place of Purification" it is clear that:

  • The Creation Myth occurred at the Place of Purification.

  • The Creation Myth and the Place of Purification are one and the same.

  • The Creation Myth is an explanation of where to locate the Place of Purification.

  • Creation occurred at the Place of Purification.

  • Creation is a process of Purification. Remember in the discussion of the Nermer Plate that Osiris was the Creation Principle. Taking this a step further in relation to Purification, Osiris becomes the Purification Principle and also the Principle of Precession.

  • At the Place of Purification there will be a Fourfold Conjunction. This sets the precise Time when the Purification will occur. Reading from left to right and bottom to top: the Sun on its journey along the ecliptic will enter a passageway, be purified in the Waters of the Milky Way and be reborn.

  • The importance of the passageway (or entrance, or portal) is emphasised by its being symbolized twice. Firstly in the "mouth" of the Mummy, and secondly in the opening at the base of the pyramid or temple. An entrance, a passageway and rebirth suggest the presence of a womb. Could a pyramid, such as the Pyramid of Giza, be considered as a "womb"? Indeed it could.


         The four celestial events in Time that will converge to mark the Dawn of the Age of Aquarius, and which can only be viewed with precision from Latitude 30 degrees North, will be:
  • The rising Winter Solstice Sun. This will be viewed from Earth as half above and half below the horizon.

  • The bisecting line across the Milky Way. The line that appears to bisect the Milky Way is in fact the horizon. The celestial hemisphere above the horizon is the dome of the sky which will be visible at the time of The Great Conjunction. The celestial hemisphere below the horizon will not visible. In Ancient Egypt the Milky Way was considered to be the Celestial Nile. The River Nile was the earthly Water of Life to the Ancient Egyptians; without the Nile there would have been no great Ancient Egyptian civilization. The Milky Way, was their spiritual Water of Life. The Milky Way represented the Waters of Life in which the Tree of Life had its roots. Referring back to the simulation of the Great Conjunction you will discover the origin of the Creation Myth of the Ancient Egyptians. They explained the origin of the universe in terms of a primordial ocean called Nun. It wasn't flat; rather it was in the shape of a cosmic egg … and from this cosmic egg was born the primeval hill called Nu. Of the Tree of Life (the Axis Munde) is written "I am the plant which comes from Nu; my mother is Nut." Notice how in the "Northern Hemisphere" the Sacred Mound, Nu, has risen out of the Waters of Nun: the Milky Way. The Tree of Life (Axis Munde) is the central invisible line, which joins the North and South Celestial Poles and around which the sky appears to pivot. The "reflection" is the Netherworld of the gods. The celestial globe is in the shape of a cosmic egg!

  • The ecliptic. This is the apparent course of the Sun across the sky over a one-year period. In reality it is the Earth moving around the Sun over a one-year period which causes this illusion … and also the Seasons.

  • The constellation of Sagittarius. This aspect of the Great Conjunction is of paramount importance because Sagittarius is the gateway to the centre of our galaxy. (This is the opening or portal to the Netherworld in mythology.) The galaxy to which Earth belongs is called the Milky Way. It is a flat, spiral galaxy except for at the centre where it bulges. You can actually see this bulge formed by the internal dotted lines of the Milky Way where the Sun is rising in the Constellation of Sagittarius on the computer simulation. This is the Galactic Stellar Womb from which the rest of the galaxy was conceived and born. Today the Womb is estimated to contain 200 billion suns! Sagittarius can be equated with the entrance to the birth canal of the galaxy. When the Sun is in Sagittarius as part of the Great Conjunction, it is fathering a New Age.

             As already noted, the Great Conjunction can only be viewed with precision from Latitude 30 degrees North … a fact which brings to light another lost secret of the Ancient Egyptians: the Guardians of Time. The Great Pyramid of Giza which stands on Latitude 30 degrees North is the perfect viewing point of the Great Conjunction. The Great Pyramid of Giza was built as a stellar observation deck for the Great Conjunction of December 21st 2012.

         Let us imagine that an observation platform has been erected at the top of the Great Pyramid and that we are standing on that platform to view the Great Conjunction: the four celestial events in Time that will converge to mark the Dawn of the Age of Aquarius. What would we expect to see as sunrise occurs at 6:48 am on December 21st 2012 in the direction of ESE?
  • The Sun is rising from its baptism in the waters of the Milky Way: a sign of the Sun's purification upon leaving the Age of Pisces, and also the consecration of the New Age of Aquarius.

  • The Milky Way is straddling the full 360 degrees of the horizon.

  • The Belt of the Milky Way is bisected by the horizon.

  • The visible section of the Milky Way above the horizon is "reflected" like a mirror image below the horizon … "As above, so below."

  • Similarly the Sun is reflected in the waters of the Milky Way.

of the Great Pyramid at Giza, latitude 30 degrees North,
at 6:48 am 21st December 2012
  • The "Southern Hemisphere" is a reflection of the "Northern Hemisphere". (Since the "Northern Hemisphere" is the heavens, then Earth as the "Southern Hemisphere" must be a reflection of the heavens … "As above, so below.")

  • Venus is dipping her toes in the Waters of the Milky Way. Like Venus we too will dip our toes into the Waters of Life in the early years of the Age of Aquarius. At first we will be apprehensive of the new experience, and perhaps a little frightened, but as our confidence in the New Age increases we will tread deeper, finally becoming totally immersed in the Age of Aquarius.


A Dot within a Circle
         Viewing the Great Conjunction from the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Great Pyramid takes on the new role of being a dot in the centre of the great circle of the Milky Way. The hieroglyph of Ra, who is considered to be the Sun god of the Ancient Egyptians, is a dot within a circle. Until now the origin and meaning of the hieroglyph for Ra, has always been obscure.
ra

A dot within a circle: the hieroglyph for Ra.
         Another lost secret of the Ancient Egyptians is reconfirmed … the hieroglyph for Ra, the dot within a circle, is a reference to and symbol for the Precession of the Ages of the Zodiac. (See Part 5) Ra was not so much a Sun god as the embodiment of the concept of Precession. The Ancient Egyptians depicted Ra in his boat crossing the sky during the day and the Netherworld/Underworld during the night, on his eternal journey of Precession; each day heading closer to the Dawn of the next Age of the Zodiac. The twelve hours of night in the Netherworld of the Ancient Egyptians represented not only the Sun's movement through the nether regions at night, but also the Sun's movement through the twelve Ages of the Zodiac. When the Sun was Reborn/Resurrected at dawn this symbolized not only the birth of a new day, but also served as a reminder of the birth of an Age, a Season or a New Year in the Ages of the Zodiacs.

The Sun is Risen: The Son is Risen
         The Great Conjunction, when the Sun fathers a New Age, will last for only a split second of Time. Nearly three hours later, at 9:34 am, the Sun will be risen and the new child of the Age of Aquarius will have been born. As with the virgin births of Hesus and Jesus, the father is God the Sun. However in this instance the child is conceived in the Womb of Sagittarius, the Mother. The child is the new-born Son/Sun of God in the Age of Aquarius. God the Father and God the Son are one and the same. They are both the Sun. In the New Age of Aquarius the Sun is risen … the Son is risen.
         December 21st 2012 does not mark the end of the world. It is not a time for mass hysteria. The timing marks an apparent event which occurs because of Precession. The Winter Equinox/Solstice occurs every year on December 21st but as many of us are about our Christmas preparations at that time we do not even notice its passing. The year 2012 will be no different. There is nothing to fear.

The Celestial Sphinx, a Sumerian Cylinder-seal and the Place of Purification

Ancient Egyptians and the Constellations: Part 17

* * *
The Sun is Risen at the Place of Purification
         The original sky chart of the remote Ancient Egyptians, dating back to 11:57pm July 3rd 14000BCE and encoding their Sacred Knowledge, was not altogether lost as the millennia slipped by almost unnoticed. As we have already discovered it was incorporated into the Narmer Plate in 4468BC (Part 8 to Part 14)

map
The original sky chart of the remote Ancient Egyptians,
dating back to 11:57pm July 3rd 14000BCE and encoding their Sacred Knowledge.
 
         More than two thousand years later, in 2308BCE, the Sumerians developed their equivalent of the 11:57pm July 3rd 14000BCE sky chart and Narmer Plate combined. It comes in the form of a royal cylinder-seal depicting "The Sun is Risen". The purpose of the seal is to celebrate the Dawn of the Age of Aries. Perhaps not surprisingly it comes complete with Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs.
         In linking the seal with the Ancient Egyptian 11:57pm July 3rd 14000BCE sky chart the following need to be accounted for: the Celestial Sphinx and the Rising Sun, together with the Constellations of Orion, Gemini, Phoenix, and Grus. There are two other constellations on the sky chart, those of Taurus and Piscis Austrinus.

A royal cylinder-seal depicting
"The Sun is Risen", complete with Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs.
It is dated to 2308 BCE and celebrates the Dawn of the Age of Aries.
 
         Moreover, in linking the seal with the Narmer Plate the following need to be additionally accounted for: the Constellation of Canis Major, the hieroglyph for the horizon and, most importantly, Precession of the Ages of the Zodiac; the Sun moving out of one Age and into the next.
         Central to the scene is the Rising-Sun, Shamash. The Risen-Sun is depicted as both the circle above Shamash's hat (the Sumerian equivalent of the Taurean Red Crown of Ancient Egypt) and the figure with outstretched wings, the Constellation of Phoenix which symbolizes Rebirth / Resurrection: the rebirth / resurrection of the Sun in a New Age of the Zodiac.          The bird with the twig in its beak, which is also recorded on the Narmer Plate, is the Constellation of Grus, the Crane. The twig and the long neck of the crane are interchangeable. This constellation is in the shape of a Cross, which symbolizes Precession. (See Part 5) The crane was the pictogram for astronomers in Ancient Egypt.
         The knife which Shamash is wielding is the Constellation of Piscis Austrinus, which hangs in the West above the Constellation of Grus in the night sky as viewed from Giza at 11:57pm July 3rd 14000BCE. This is symbolically the implement used in the Opening of the Mouth Ceremony … the Opening of the Way or Portal for the Sun to pass through into the next Age of the Zodiac.

         The hieroglyph used for the mountain, or horizon on the cylinder-seal is an Ancient Egyptian hieroglyph, the same as appears on the Narmer Plate. On the cylinder-seal however the mountain is covered in either waves denoting water, or feathers denoting birds' wings.
mound

The Ancient Egyptian hieroglyph for Mound or Horizon.
 
         It is a tri-partite symbol encoding the Sacred Mound, the Waters of Nun, and the Winged Disk. In the centre of the Winged Disk is the Sun passing through the Portal, Opening or Birth Canal into the next Age of the Zodiac … which is a concise description of the event portrayed on the roller seal.
wingdisk

The Winged disk
 
         The figure with one foot on the Sacred Mound is the god Ea, the Sumerian equivalent of the Ancient Egyptian concept of the Sacred Waters of Nun. His prominent nose sets him apart from the others as being an introduced figure.
ea

The god Ea is the Sumerian equivalent of the Celestial Sphinx!
 
Ea is a new concept which combines the Constellation of Orion, and the Sacred Waters of Nun as the Constellation of Eridanus, fanning out behind him like a pair of wings. In effect the god Ea is the Sumerian equivalent of the Celestial Sphinx! Ea was later adapted into the figures of Moses and John the Baptist. Jesus is the Risen Sun/Son baptized in the waters of the sacred Waters of Nun.
         Ea's association with Nermer/Orion, is evidenced by the Constellation of Lepus the Hare at his feet. Clearly, by 2308BCE Lepus had lost its Ancient Egyptian association with Orion's Chair, the Throne of God.
lepus

Ea's association with Nermer/Orion, is evidenced by
the Constellation of Lepus the Hare at his feet. 
 
         Moreover Ea can be compared with Naram/Orion on the Naram Stele, which is also dated to 2308BCE. Both Ea and Naram are positioned with one foot on the Mound.
naram

Ea can be compared with Naram/Orion on the Naram Stele,
which is also dated to 2308BCE. Both are positioned with one foot on the Mound.
 
         Meanwhile another very bewildered Naram/Orion, complete with bull's ear, (See Part 15) stands next to the Tree of Life (the Axis Munde) on the cylinder-seal. He was necessary to maintain balance both on the seal and on the sky chart. Like Naram he is wearing a very large overlay to cover his Taurean virility.
         It is noticeable however that he is no longer attended by the King of the Seven Stars, Sirius. (See Part 10) Rather he is accompanied by his dog, the Constellation of Canis Major. This indicates that the transformation of the symbolism of the constellation of Canis Major from person to dog had occurred by 2308BCE.

orion

Orion is accompanied by his dog, the Constellation of Canis Major.
 
         The figure at our far right, representing the Gemini Twins, is looking back to the past and forward to the future. Remember it is a cylinder-seal and as such conveys Cycles of Time repeated into Eternity when twirled around and around in the hand. The past and the future are one and the same.
gemini

The Gemini Twins
The past and the future are one and the same.
 
         Despite this cylinder seal being dated to the beginning of the Age of Aries, the Ram, there is no evidence of a ram on the cylinder-seal. Either the dating of the seal is incorrect or the content of the Nermer Plate 4468BCE and the night sky as viewed from Giza 11:57pm July 3rd 14000BCE have been adapted by the Sumerians to symbolize Precession of the Ages in general.
         I have translated the hieroglyphs of the descriptive title on this Sumerian cylinder-seal as "The Place of Purification." The Sun is Purified, or Baptized, in the waters of Nun before it is reborn/resurrected into the New Age of the Zodiac.
         The Sumerian hieroglyphs, which evidence the development of writing from Ancient Egyptian to Sumerian hieroglyphs, are written in two different styles.
abt
purification
"Abt": the Place of Purification
Ancient Egyptian (See Part 16)
The place of Purification
Sumerian

         The bottom and earlier form is directly derived from the Ancient Egyptian original: "abt", which translates as "Place of Purification". The glyphs on the right of the Sumerian writing represent the human ritual of the "Opening of the Mouth Ceremony" while those on the left represent the celestial ritual of the "Opening of the Mouth Ceremony"; the Sun passing through the Portal into a New Age. (See Part 10 and Part 16)
         The upper form is a later development still. The glyphs have become more stylized. The "leg" glyph of Osiris/Orion has adopted the two triangles which form the arms of Orion in the cylinder-seal as his identification tag. (Compare this to the Orion tag on the Kish Tablet in Part 12) The long neck is his beard and the square is his head. His "mouth" (which can also be interpreted as the horns of Taurus the Bull) is open ready to receive the Sun at the beginning of a New Age.
         The transition has been made. The original sky chart of the remote Ancient Egyptians dating back to 11:57pm July 3rd 14000BCE is hardly recognisable to the untrained eye in the sky chart recorded on this Sumerian cylinder-seal. 


From Celestial Sphinx to Celestial Fish

The Sun is Risen: The Son is Risen
         The Great Conjunction, when the Sun fathers a New Age, will last for only a split second of Time. Nearly three hours later, at 9:34 am, the Sun will be risen and the new child of the Age of Aquarius will have been born. As with the virgin births of Hesus and Jesus, the father is God the Sun.

God the Father and God the Son are one and the same. They are both the Sun. In the New Age of Aquarius the Sun is risen … the Son is risen.
         December 21st 2012 does not mark the end of the world. It is not a time for mass hysteria. The timing marks an apparent event which occurs because of Precession. The winter equinox occurs every year on December 21st but as many of us are about our Christmas preparations at that time we do not even notice its passing. The year 2012 will be no different. There is nothing to fear.
         We will however be aware of the importance of the moment when we witness the dawn of a new Galactic Season! It will be another 25920 years before this moment in Time will be repeated and witnessed by our descendants. We are a privileged people: the "Chosen Ones" some might say, as we will be present at the Resurrection, the Resurrection of the Sun/Son.
         The Dawn of the last Galactic Season, Taurus, was witnessed by the Ancient Egyptians on September 21st 4468BCE, and recorded by them on the Nermer Plate for posterity … lest the Secret of the Ages be lost. This Dawn was followed by a Golden Age for the Ancient Egyptians, an Age of accomplishment and prosperity. Like the Sun they had been bathed in the glow of the Dawn of a New Age. They had undergone a Baptism of Water in which they were cleansed of the Old Galactic Age of Leo and were reborn into the Golden Age of Taurus.
         It will be no different for us. We too will be bathed in the glow of the Dawn of a New Age. We will be privileged to witness the Dawn of another Golden Age of accomplishment and prosperity. Christmas will retain its meaning as a celebration of the Birth of a New Age, but perhaps the Birth date will be changed to 21st December. (The Winter Solstice used to fall on December 25th which is why Christmas is celebrated on that day.)The Christmas Tree will not be out of place in the Age of Aquarius …the tree represents the Tree of Life (Axis Munde) around which the heavens appear to revolve. The branches of the Christmas Tree support the colourful baubles just as the branches of the Tree of Life support the stars in the heavens. The flashing lights represent the twinkling stars. The star on the top of the Christmas Tree represents the Risen Sun on the Tree of Life, the beginning of a New Age.
         The Galactic Season of Aquarius is markedly different from that of the Galactic Season of Taurus in the night skies. As the name suggests, water is the key element. This does not mean however that the world is automatically going to be inundated by floods and rising sea levels. One interpretation is that the Age of Aquarius is symbolic of spiritual cleansing, baptism in the Waters of Life.
aquarius

The Age of Aquarius dawns at 6:48am on December 21st 2012.

         However for the original and intended purpose of the water symbolism we need to refer back to the mythology of the Ancient Egyptians, the architects of the constellations. In their Creation Myth the origin of the universe was explained in terms of a primordial ocean called Nun. Out of this ocean was born the primeval hill called Nu. The Tree of Life was the plant which came from Nu; its mother was Nut, the heavens. In this quadrant of the heavens the water symbolism of the Age of Aquarius represents the primordial ocean, Nun, in the Creation Myth. The water imagery includes:
  • The Nile River … Eridanus.
  • The Nile Delta … Triangulum.
  • The Fish … Pisces.
  • The Southern Fish … Pisces Austrinus.
  • A Whale or Sea Monster … Cetus.
  • A shark's fin … the hat of Perseus.
  • The Sea Goat … Capricornus.
  • The Dolphin … Delphinus.
  • The Swan … Cygnus.
  • The Water Bearer … Aquarius.
         The Water Bearer is the herald of the New Age of Aquarius. It is he who figuratively sheds the first drops of water of the New Age from his urn. However the Water Bearer is not of human form as is generally supposed. The Water Bearer is, quite logically, a fish.
         God in the Galactic Season of Eagle/Scorpio was a human headed leonine male with an Osiris beard, in the form of a Sphinx Super Giant in the heavens. He was Hu, the Celestial Sphinx. God in the Galactic Season of Leo was a Lion. God in the galactic Season of Taurus was a Bull, or Nermer/Osiris/Orion affecting the image of the Bull. God in the Age of Aquarius will be a Super Giant Fish; the Fisher King.

God in the Galactic Season of Aquarius is a Super Giant Fish; the Fisher King.

         When Pisces Austrinus and Capricornus are joined together they form both a fish and the White Crown of Egypt. It is becoming clear that the White Crown is not only associated with the Age of Leo/Gemini as earlier indicated, but also with the Galactic Precession of the Equinoxes in general.
         Nermer's signature is evident in the fish of Pisces Austrinus and Capricornus together with the three barbels of Aquarius … forming "Ner" the Catfish … and Pisces Austrinus forming "Mer" the Chisel. Interestingly the word "barbel" is derived from the Latin "barba" meaning "beard". Pisces Austrinus is suggestive of the Osiris beard.

         Today we are the Children of the Celestial Sphinx. We are the heirs to the Lost Secrets of remote Ancient Egypt. The stars invoke us from the heavens like the echo of a collective memory.
         The Ancient Egyptians discovered the secret of Precession. They charted the heavens. They were the Guardians of Time and we are their children.

Sacred Stars and Treasure Maps

Ancient Egyptians and the Constellations: Part 19

* * *
The Grand Design

map

Star Map "Sirius". Each point of the five-pointed star
denotes the position of an Ancient Site.
         I first discovered this compelling evidence of a Grand Design undertaken by the peoples of the Ancient World in early March 1998. At the time I considered these five-pointed stars neatly arranged across Europe in terms of talismans against a world catastrophe. I now know them to be evidence in stone of the Ancient World's knowledge of Geometry, Astronomy and Precession. As a bonus they give us valuable information as to where to dig for evidence of Lost Ancient Civilizations. I have named my Star Maps of Europe "Sirius", "Blazing Star" and "Venus" for easier identification.
map

Star Map "Blazing Star". Not only each point, but also each
intersection of the five-pointed star is the location of an Ancient Site.
         Adopting the argument that any five random points can be joined together to form a five-pointed star it could be argued that these star maps across Europe happened by chance. However there are more than five locations pinpointed on each map and each location is situated on a ley.
         A ley is an alignment of three or more places in a straight line. The more places situated on a straight line of the landscape the greater the probability that their position did not happen by chance. On "Blazing Star" above, there are no less than six Ancient Sites on one ley, five of which are already well documented. The sixth is where we dig to rediscover a Lost Site of the Ancient World. Who knows what treasures await us when we awaken the Site from its long sleep.
map

Star Map "Venus". More Lost Ancient Sites are pinpointed.
         The importance of Alexandropol, Li Muri and Benghazi as Ancient Sites is evidenced by their inclusion on all three maps.
         These are only three examples of Star Maps across Europe, yet within them is encoded the information required to locate as many as eighteen lost or forgotten Sites of the Ancient World! Each Star Maps reveals six locations. These are to be found on star points, star intersections and Benghazi. There are probably many more Ancient World Sites, like Benghazi, Ghiza and Delphi for example, which are located on the leys but not specifically at the points or intersections of the five-pointed stars.
The Five-Pointed Star: the Pentalpha
         The Pentalpha, literally meaning five times the letter "A", has long been considered to be a symbol of Power and Protection. It was also named the "Blazing Star" because it symbolized not only the mystery of the night skies but also the planet Venus.
star

The Pentalpha. Literally meaning five times the letter "A"
it is suggestive of a person … a head, two arms and two legs.
         The five-pointed star was, and still is, considered to be a symbol of the spirit in communion with the four elements of earth, air, fire and water. In the course of his drawings Leonardo da Vinci illustrated this communion by equating the microcosm of a single person, himself, with the macrocosm of the cosmos by staking himself out naked upon an irregular pentalpha … the "as above, so below" principle. At the time this would have been considered to be a very daring version of the crucifixion of Jesus on the Cross … at least by those people who understood the esoteric meaning.

In this self portrait (centre) dated around 1487 Leonardo Da Vinci (1452 - 1519)
is literally and metaphorically standing on the square!
As witnessed in a later drawing Leonardo's facial characteristics never changed over the years.
Location of sketch: Venice, Academy.
         The illustration includes three geometric figures: an irregular pentalpha formed by the head, two arms and two legs, a circle and a square. By definition the circle has no angles, no beginning and no end, and as such it represents Eternity, Perpetual Motion and Perpetual Repetition of Cycles. Every point on the circumference of the circle is equidistant from the centre, the dot within the circle. This central point of revolution is referred to as the fifth cardinal direction. It is scientifically impossible for a point on the circumference to materially err from the centre of the circle and vice versa.
         The square is significant since Leonardo is portrayed with his feet in the position of "standing on the square". Leonardo standing on the square and in the crucifix position is symbolic of him becoming as one with the World Pillar or Axis Munde around which the heavens appear to revolve in a perpetual repetition of cycles. (See Part 6)
         A T-square is an Ancient Egyptian hieroglyph for "Tau" which means "sacred gate" or "sacred opening". Multiple Taus form a temple: for example Stone Henge. The Triple Tau is the symbol for the Temple of Jerusalem. (See Part 10)

the Temple of Jerusalem, within the Great Pyramid.
Both are examples of the Sacred Summit "Templum Hierosolma"
… encoding the Secret of Precession.
         A set-square, by definition set at an angle of 90 degrees, is the Ancient Egyptian hieroglyph for "Pharaoh". The word "Pharaoh" which we use today actually comes from the Hebrew, meaning "Sun". Incredibly "Par" or "Peor" also means "Opening" and "Mountain". The words "Sun" and "Opening" and "Mountain" are immediately associated with Precession of the Equinoxes. (See Part 10)

         More than communion with the elements of earth, air, fire and water Leonardo's self portrait represents the Precession of the Equinoxes as outlined in Part 5: The Royal Arch of the Ages of the Zodiac.
The Royal Arch of Precession of the Ages of the Zodiac
         The reason Precession occurs is that the Earth not only rotates on its axis … otherwise known as the Axis Munde or World Pillar … it also wobbles. This wobble effect is a phenomenon caused by forces exerted by the Sun on the bulges of the Earth at the Equator.
         The wobble effect is best explained in terms of a spinning top. As the top begins to lose momentum it begins to wobble. It is this same kind of circular movement, or wobble, of the Earth, which moving at a constant speed over long periods of Time alters the direction of the Polar Axis. One revolution is completed every 25,920 years. The central point of revolution is called the "pole of the ecliptic".
polestar

The visible effect of Precession on the Pole Star.
The wobble effect is best explained in terms of a spinning top.
As the top begins to lose momentum it begins to wobble.
         The apparent cycle of the Pole Stars over a period of 25,920 years is not the only effect of Precession as viewed from Planet Earth. Another effect with which most of us will be familiar is the apparent movement of the Signs of the Zodiac across the sky on an annual basis. It is reasonable to suspect that most of you reading this will be familiar with the Sign of the Zodiac under which you were born, and many of you will read your stars in newspapers and magazines everyday. You might be an Aries or a Libra. Or perhaps like me you are a Scorpio.
         The apparent movement of the Signs of the Zodiac across the sky does not only take place on an annual basis however. The cycle also occurs over a period of 25,920 years, often referred to as Plato's Great Year.
         The following diagram can be interpreted on both of these levels, but the main emphasis is on the Great Year … the Four Seasons, the Twelve Ages and the Precession of the Equinoxes. The twelve markers indicating the timing of the Sun entering a New Age and / or Season of the Zodiac are like "flags" denoting the boundaries. In fact they could be considered as "flagships" heralding in each of the New Ages and / or Seasons.
         The ensigns of the twelve Zodiacal Constellations, representing the Twelve Ages in the Precession of the Equinoxes, appear to arch their way across the sky as if in royal procession. The beginning of a new Zodiacal Season is marked by the standards of the Lion, the Bull, the Man and the Eagle … sometimes equated with the Four Cardinal Directions. The Fifth Cardinal Direction is the central point of revolution, the pole of the ecliptic.

The ensigns of the twelve Zodiacal Constellations, representing
the Twelve Ages in the Precession of the Equinoxes,
appear to arch their way across the sky as if in royal procession.
The beginning of a new Zodiacal Season is marked by
the standards of the Lion, the Bull, the Man and the Eagle.
         The blue dot within the circle is Planet Earth around which the Constellations of the Zodiac appear to revolve. The "Cross" which is formed by the four quarters of the circle takes 25,920 years to complete one revolution. The completion of one revolution is referred to as a Great Year.
         Within this Great Year are four Seasons, which are defined by the Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter Equinoxes. For this reason the Great Year is also referred to as the Precession of the Equinoxes. Within each Season are three Ages. For example, within the Zodiacal Season of Taurus there are the three Ages of Taurus (the Bull), Aries (the Ram) and Pisces (the Fish). Within the Zodiacal Season of Aquarius there are the three Ages of Aquarius (Man), Capricorn (the Sea Goat) and Sagittarius (the Archer). Each Zodiacal Season comprises a 90-degree right-angle … like a set-square. Each Zodiacal Season is a one fourth part of a circle and, like Leonardo da Vinci, is standing on the square.
         Although he was not technically a Freemason Leonardo was, perhaps not surprisingly, a member of the Prierre de Sion., the Priory of the Sun. As such he would have been well aware of the Royal Arch of the Ages of the Zodiac and the concept of Precession. At the time however it would have been considered heresy to admit to such knowledge.
         When the five-pointed star is circumscribed by a circle, as it was in Da Vinci's illustration, it becomes a pentacle. It is uncanny that Nature has reproduced this Sacred Geometry in France, near Rennes-le-Chateau, in the form of five mountains virtually equidistant around the circumference of a circle. Rennes-le-Chateau appears as an Ancient Site on my Star Map "Venus" and is closely associated with the Priory of the Sun.
         Like the circle, the "endless knot" of the five-pointed star denotes "eternity". There is no beginning and no end.
The "Pi" Ratio: the Golden Mean.
         The regular five-pointed star is important in geometry because it encodes the "pi" ratio, alternatively named the "Golden Mean".
         Pi in numerical terms is expressed as 3.14159265 to the nearest eight decimal places.
         The pi ratio in the five-pointed star, the pentalpha, is encoded in the lines of the pentagon framing the star and in the tangent lines of the star itself. The ratio of one star tangent line (pink) to one pentagon line (green) is:
Ø = (1 + 5)/2 = 2cos(pi/5) = 1.61803 … and this is the "Golden Ratio".
goldenratio

The ratio of one star tangent line (pink) to one pentagon line (green) is:
Ø = (1 + 5)/2 = 2cos(pi/5) = 1.61803 … and this is the "Golden Ratio".
"Pi" and the Ancient Egyptians
         Usually the discovery of "pi" is attributed to the Ancient Greeks, the Pythagoreans having adopted the pi symbol as their emblem. In fact it was the Ancient Egyptians who discovered pi as attested on the Narmer Plate dated 4468BC.

         Around his neck Sirius, the "King of the Seven Stars", is wearing the double tau, the "pi" symbol. From the Tau hieroglyph in the Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead it is clear that "Tau" means "holy or sacred gate" or "holy or sacred opening". The five-pointed star denotes the word "sacred".
nermer
sirius

The Narmer Plate 4468BC: the King of the Seven Stars
is wearing the pi symbol around his neck.
         The reason the five-pointed star was considered sacred was because it was a symbol which encoded the Secret of Precession as well as the Golden Mean. The number of degrees around the centre point of the star (360) divided by the number of arms of the star (5) renders the number seventy-two … which is significant in terms of astronomy (see Part 4) and Freemasonry.
         Seventy-two is the number of years that it takes for the sky bodies to appear to move through one degree of their cycle. When the seventy-two years are multiplied by the three hundred and sixty degrees of the complete cycle, we discover that it takes is 25,920 years for each heavenly cycle to be completed … at which time the process starts all over again. This is the cycle of Precession.
         In Freemasonry the number seventy-two is significant, as traditionally the angle at which the Masonic Compasses stand is 72 degrees.
The Five-Pointed Star and Freemasonry
         Further examples of the five-pointed star being associated with Freemasonry include the Master of the Lodge being represented by this symbol. Moreover it was traditionally an emblem of the early Masonic Guilds because they were unified in their application of the Sacred Geometry of the Golden Ratio in the building of the great cathedrals of Europe.
         Indeed Geometry was synonymous with Masonic Guilds or Freemasonry. Geometry is referred to as the "fifth science" while the Supreme Being is referred to as the Grand Geometrician. A Second Degree Fellow Craft Freemason is referred to as a "G Man", the "G" referring to Geometry. The following comes from ritual dating back to 1730.

Q: Why was you made a Fellow-Craft?
A: For the sake of the letter G.
Q: What does G denote?
A: Geometry or the Fifth Science.

The Heavenly G.
         A few years ago when Freemasonic Temples were open to the public in South Australia the letter G was evident, suspended above eye level. I was told that it stood for God and Geometry.
         To determine the position of the Heavenly G we begin our journey in the constellation of Taurus. After locating the bright red star of Alderbaran arc north-west through the Gemini Twins, Castor and Pollux, and on to Procyon in Canis Minor. From there move directly on to the brightest star in the heavens, Sirius, in the constellation of Canis Major. We continue the G-curve through to Rigel, at the mouth of the Celestial Sphinx, and then continue in a straight line, passing to the right of the middle star of Orion's Belt until we reach the end of our journey at Betelgeus, more commonly known as Beetle Juice.

The "Heavenly G' in the Northern Winter Skies.
Today it stands for God and Geometry.
God, the Creator, in 14000BC was the Celestial Sphinx.
         It is significant that the final line of the Heavenly G is a straight line and that it passes through the Constellation of Orion, which was considered by the later Ancient Egyptians as being Sahu, the soul of Osiris who represented the Axis Munde around which the heavens appeared to revolve. (See Part 6) More important at this point however is its symbolism as a link between the celestial and terrestrial worlds. A link between God and Man.
         This link is clearly demonstrated in the star chart above: God, the Celestial Sphinx, is linked literally with Man, the Giant Orion. This same link between God and Man was reproduced at Giza in the form of the Sphinx and the Three Pyramids. The Sphinx was the earthly representation of the Celestial Sphinx and the Three Pyramids were the earthly representation of the Belt of Orion and, by extension, of the Giant Orion himself.
         (The ground plan of the Three Pyramids of Giza was discovered to be a replica of Orion's Belt by Robert Bauval in November 1983. Ref: Bauval, R & Gilbert, A The Orion Mystery. Mandarin, London 1994)
         There is the possibility that the actual meaning of the letter G in Freemasonry is not as important as the fact that it exists. Ego: I exist, I am ... which relates back to the God of the Old Testament telling Moses "I AM THAT I AM" ... "I AM hath sent me" (Exodus 3 v 14). In this sense the letter G would represent the Great I Am, God himself. In 14000BC God was the Celestial Sphinx.

         In an expose of 1730 when the letter G was a symbol of the Second Degree Fellow Craft the following ritual was recorded:

Q. When you came into the middle, what did you see?
A. The Resemblance of the Letter G.
Q. Who doth that G denote?
A. One that's greater than you.
Q. Who's greater than I that am a Free and Accepted Mason, the Master of a Lodge?
A. The Grand Architect and Contriver of the Universe, or He that was taken up to the Top of the Pinnacle of the Holy Temple.
         The initial question "When you came into the middle, what did you see?" refers to the Winter Skychart for the Northern Latitudes looking South for the dates of the year October 15th through to April 1st. The most prominent date and time among these is January 1st at midnight as the New Year is being welcomed in at which time the Heavenly G is high in the centre of the night sky. The reply given to the question is fully accurate: "The Resemblance of the Letter G." Notice that the Heavenly G does not have the horizontal bar.
heavenlyg

On January 1st at midnight as the New Year is being welcomed in
the Heavenly G is high in the centre of the night sky.
Notice that the Heavenly G does not have the horizontal bar.
         Interestingly the second question asks who, not what, the G denotes, and receives the correct reply "One that's greater than you." This person is further clarified as being "The Grand Architect and Contriver of the Universe." In other words the person who was responsible for the allocation of the constellation patterns to the night skies, the person who gave pattern and form to an otherwise chaotic cosmos. As we discovered in Part 2 this person can only refer to the Celestial Sphinx, the Creator. In turn the Celestial Sphinx was the brainchild of the remote Ancient Egyptians prior to 14000BC.
         The second description of whom G denotes: "He that was taken up to the Top of the Pinnacle of the Holy Temple" suggests that the Holy Temple is the Celestial Dome. It follows that the Pinnacle of the Holy Temple can only be the Celestial North Pole. This would confirm the Grand Architect and Contriver of the Universe as having recognised the existence of a Celestial North Pole and the apparent rotation of the stars in the night skies around it. According to Ancient Egyptian Memphite teaching Ptah filled this prestigious position.

Ptah was often depicted raised on a pedestal which was to be
found in the Naos of a temple. The Naos, like the oak tree,
was considered to be the centre of the universe.
 
         Ptah was often depicted raised on a pedestal which was to be found in the Naos of a temple. The Naos, like the oak tree, was considered to be the centre of the universe. Ptah, who usurped Osiris' role as the World Pillar, was symbolic of the Axis Munde around which the heavens appear to revolve. He was the link between the celestial and terrestrial worlds.
         Not surprisingly therefore, in his hands he holds an upright staff, a composite sceptre uniting the emblems of life, stability and omnipotence. Ptah is not only the personification of the final straight line of the "Heavenly G" he is also the personification of Precession.


Freemasonry: The Legacy of the Ancient Egyptians

Ancient Egyptians and the Constellations: Part 20

* * *
The Port Adelaide Masonic Centre 1928
         If there was ever any doubt that Freemasonry is the child of the Ancient Egyptians it is dispelled at the Port Adelaide Freemasonic Centre for it is here that the Number Two Lodge of South Australia is built in the form of an Egyptian Temple!
         Until only a few years ago in South Australia the Freemasonic Lodge Room was called the Temple.

The Port Adelaide Masonic Centre, Number Two Lodge
of South Australia, is built in the form of an Egyptian Temple!
         The side of the Egyptian Temple faces the main road while the front faces a side street. The shadowed area under the verandah is a group of shops.

         Excepting the shop fronts, the front of the Temple is not unlike the side in design. So realistic is the Temple that with the Australian Summer Sun burning down and the vividly blue sky a person could imagine having been transported to Egypt.

Hieroglyph for "Temple"
         The overall shape of the Temple is of paramount importance as it is an Ancient Egyptian hieroglyph meaning "temple"!

Notice also the Tau hieroglyph formed by the space above the Temple

         In Part 9 it was discovered that when the hieroglyph appeared on the Narmer Plate in 4468 BCE it not only represented a temple it also represented Dawn, the Dawn of the Age of Taurus in the Precession of the Equinoxes.

Hieroglyph for "Heaven"
         Below the eaves of the Masonic Temple and directly above the main entrance is to be found yet another Ancient Egyptian hieroglyph, this time denoting "heaven". It is pure and unspoilt.

         A similar hieroglyph is to be found in a similar position on the side of the Temple. Crafted into this hieroglyph for "heaven" is what appears to be further Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs together with Freemasonic emblems of for example, the Level, and the Square and Compasses.

The Four World Pillars
         In Ancient Egyptian mythology the Four World Pillars held up the heavens and represented the four cardinal points of NSEW. The Four Pillars of Heaven are clearly visible on both the side and the front of the Masonic Temple
.

the side of the Port Adelaide Masonic Centre.

The Fifth World Pillar
         The Fifth, and most important World Pillar was the Axis Munde around which the heavens appear to revolve. The Axis Munde represented the Fifth Cardinal Point. (See Part 5, Part 6 and Part 7.)
         This Fifth Pillar is to be found engraved into each tower, one on each side of the main window. It is not immediately recognizable as a Pillar however, as it is the form of yet another Ancient Egyptian hieroglyph! It is the hieroglyph for "plant" and is composed of the three sacred lotus lilies, meaning "Tree of Life".

unb
Hieroglyph of the three sacred lotus lilies meaning "Tree of Life".
         The lotus flower was used in Ancient Egypt to represent Life and Resurrection. (See Part 6) In ancient Egyptian texts it is written of the Tree of Life, "I am the plant which comes from Nu." The Tree of Life grew out of the Sacred Mound, the branches reaching out and supporting the star and planet studded sky, while the roots reached down into the watery abyss of the Netherworld.

The Tree of Life on the Masonic Egyptian Temple
grew out of the Sacred Mound,
it's roots reached down into the watery abyss of the Netherworld.

         It was the trunk of the Tree of Life which represented the World Pillar or Axis Munde (literally "Axis of the Mound") around which the heavens appeared to revolve. The World Pillar was the centre of the universe. It was Osiris as the Djed Pillar, the Pillar of Stability and it was the Great Pyramid of Egypt. (See Part 6 and Part 7)
         On the engraving there are fifteen layers to the Sacred Mound, and the Sacred Waters of Nun are at level five from the top. The number 15 is important in terms of Precession as the celestial lines of longitude are placed at 15 degree intervals.

The Sacred Waters of Nun

         Furthermore the Sacred Waters are represented swirling around both the side and front of the building, on a level with the tops of the windows. (See picture below.) The fresco is an integral part of the decoration encoding Ancient Egyptian mythology concerning not only the watery abyss of the Netherworld but also the Great Flood (See Part 10) the River Nile and the Milky Way. The Milky Way also known as the Celestial River Nile. (See Part 2 and Part 3)

The Winged Disk
         Directly below the two central Pillars on the front of the Temple is the Winged Disk in full flight.

The Winged Disk above the entrance to the Temple

         In Ancient Egypt the Winged Disk was a combined emblem of the Sun, a double-headed cobra and eagle or vulture wings. Moreover it is an alternative form of the "temple" hieroglyph. (See Part 17) The Cobra and the Vulture represented Upper and Lower Egypt … not just in the geographical sense but also in the sense of a Celestial Egypt and a Terrestrial Egypt. The "as above so below" concept. (See Part 3) The combined emblem represents the Sun passing through the centre of the Winged Disk, the Sacred Gateway, into the next Age of the Zodiac. (See Part 3 and Part 17)

wingdisk

The Sun passes through the centre of the Winged Disk,
the Sacred Gateway, into the next Age of the Zodiac.

         For confirmation of this esoteric meaning let us take a closer look at the engraving of the Winged Disk on the Masonic Building. Within the Sacred Gateway is to be found the emblem of the Royal Arch Chapter: the Triple Tau within a triangle, within a circle.

Within the Sacred Gateway is to be found
the emblem of the Royal Arch Chapter:
the triple tau within a triangle, within a circle.

         In Part 10 it was discovered that from the Tau hieroglyph in the Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead it is clear that "Tau" means "holy or sacred gate" or "holy or sacred opening". The five-pointed star denotes the word "sacred".

NB: Tau and H
(H = Double Tau)
"Seba"
Triple Tau: Gates
or Sacred Opening
Triple Tau: The
Temple of Jerusalem
NB: Tau and H
(H = Double Tau)
         The Double and Triple Tau represent the plural form of Tau. Visually, when the Taus are joined together horizontally, they represent a temple. Two examples of this are: the hieroglyph between the Taurus Bulls' heads on each side of the Narmer Plate, and also Stone Henge. The vertical trunks of the Taus represent the columns of the Temple. In the Osiris Legend, Osiris was encased in a tree trunk, which was later utilized as a pillar. The pillar of a temple represents Osiris … who has already been evidenced as the Axis Munde in the Djed Pillar; the Pillar of Stability. (See Part 4 and Part 6) Since a Tau is a "sacred gateway, opening or portal", and multiple Taus form a Temple, it follows that a Temple is a gateway, opening or portal: a portal to the Netherworld through which the Sun rises at the Dawn of a New Age of the Zodiac.
         The Triple Tau represents the Temple of Jerusalem. Another name for the Temple of Jerusalem is "Templum Hierosolma", which translates as "Temple on a Sacred Mound". Since a Tau represents a Gateway, opening or portal then the Temple of Jerusalem follows suit … complete with Osirian Pillars! It is through this portal that the Sun rises at the Dawn of a New Age of the Zodiac.
         As discussed earlier in Part 7, the Great Pyramid is also built on a Sacred Mound and, like the Osirian Pillar, it represents the Axis Munde. The Temple of Jerusalem as the Triple Tau, secured within the triangle of the Great Pyramid, is displayed on the Collar pictured below. The Great Pyramid and the Temple of Jerusalem are symbolic of the Sacred Summit, the Axis Munde, and the concept of Precession.

the Temple of Jerusalem, within the Great Pyramid.
Both are examples of the Sacred Summit "Templum Hierosolma"
encoding the Secret of Precession.
The Square and Compasses
         Directly below the Winged Disk and above the entrance to the Temple are carved the Square and Compasses. Today a pair of compasses like these would be called "dividers". Without these instruments it would have been impossible for the Remote Ancient Egyptians to measure the rate of Precession accurately. Furthermore without the Plumb Rule used in conjunction with the Plumb Line they would have been unable to measure the positions of stars and their corresponding positions on the ground. The Constellation of Monoceros forms the Square and Compasses, Canis Minor is a Plumb Rule. (See Part 5)

The Square and Compasses

         On the diagram for "The Royal Arch of the Ages of the Zodiac" in Part 5 each Zodiacal Season comprises a 90 degree right-angle … like a set-square. Each Zodiacal Season is a one fourth part of a circle and is standing on the square.

The Sacred Gateway
         The main entrance into the Masonic Egyptian Temple is perhaps the most startling in what it reveals about Freemasonry as a legacy of the Ancient Egyptians. It is immediately recognizable as a Sacred Gateway, the Gateway of the Sun in the Precession of the Ages of the Zodiac. (See Part 10 to Part 13)

The All-seeing Eye of Ra
         Within the porchway, above the double doors is the all-seeing Eye of Ra. Uncharacteristically it is not like its Egyptian counterpart. Rather, like the hieroglyphs on the side of the building, it has been Anglicized so that it appears complete with bushy eyebrow!


ra

The All-seeing Eye of Ra, complete with bushy eyebrow
         The Eye of Ra took on several guises in Ancient Egypt:
a) As the "Ouadjit" it was a form of measurement. It is comprised of six hieroglyphs, each representing a different fraction. The sum of the hieroglyphs is 63/64. The absolute is unobtainable. This concept is related in the myth of Osiris. After he is cut up into fourteen pieces by his jealous brother Set, Osiris' sister/wife Isis can only find thirteen pieces of his dismembered body. The phallus remains lost for ever. Osiris was considered to be the Absolute, the First God. He was perfection. Others can only aim for the absolute, they will never achieve it.

The Ouadjit: the sum of the hieroglyphs is 63/64

         Note: This myth does not take into account the true Absolute, the true Self-existent, the true First Cause … The Celestial Sphinx. (See Part 2 and Part 3) Osiris usurped the position and title of the Celestial Sphinx "Giver of Life in the Beginning".
         (The "ouija board", derived from the Ancient Egyptian "Ouadjit", is the modern day equivalent of the All-seeing Eye of Ra.)

b) As the Sun, the Eye of Ra was denoted by the hieroglyph of a "dot within a circle" as well as the Ouadjit. Even today the Sun is sometimes referred to as "the eye of the day".

c) As a "dot within a circle" the All-seeing Eye of Ra is a symbol of Precession. The "dot within a circle" is the pole of the ecliptic, the central point of the revolution of the Signs of the Zodiac and the Ages of the Zodiac around the heavens, and as such is the Fifth Cardinal Point. (See Part 5)

of the revolution of the Ages of the Zodiac around the heavens.
This is the origin of the Sun Wheel.

d) Finally, as a Watchful Eye the All-seeing Eye is considered in terms of humanity being under the complete surveillance of a Supreme Being. (See Part 3) The Celestial Sphinx was the Supreme Being in the heavens in 14000BCE.

The Two Pillars
         The porchway of the Port Adelaide Masonic Building is flanked by two pillars, each of which support a different version of the Celestial Globe. In this capacity the Pillars are representative of the Fifth World Pillar, the Axis Munde. As previously mentioned the Axis Munde represented the Fifth Cardinal Point.
         The First Pillar, which is on the right-hand side of a person facing the entrance, is indisputably supporting the Celestial Globe. It is covered in large and small five-pointed stars, apparently randomly spaced, and also a crescent moon. Unfortunately the crescent moon is not visible on the photograph as it is up near the top left-hand side in the shadow.

The Celestial Globe is covered with five-pointed stars
and a crescent moon.

         The Second Pillar could possibly appear to the untrained eye to be a rendition of Planet Earth, complete with lines of latitude and longitude but no land masses.
         In reality these are celestial lines of latitude and longitude, symbolising Precession. (See Part 5) There are twelve celestial lines of longitude set at 30 degree intervals to accommodate the Twelve Signs of the Zodiac.

This Celestial Globe is covered with celestial lines
of latitude and longitude, symbolising Precession.

         When these grid lines, or reference points, are superimposed on the star-studded celestial globe a picture is produced not too unlike the one below, which is a computer simulation of the night sky.
map
A computer simulation of the night sky 11:57 pm July 3rd 14000BC.

         The spots represent major stars from which the remote Ancient Egyptians mapped the constellations. The "lines of longitude" are equally spaced at 15 degrees to facilitate ease of calculations of the apparent movement of the stars over thousands of years. The rate of Precession was calculated at one degree every 72 years which means that it takes 25,920 years to complete one cycle. (See Part 4)
         The remote Ancient Egyptians divided the sky into 12 equal 30 degree segments, each of which contains one Sign of the Zodiac. Every 2160 years (72 years x 30 degrees) the Sun moves through the Sacred Gateway into a new Age of the Zodiac. On December 21st 2012 the Sun will pass through the "Gateway of the Sun" and rise in the new Age of Aquarius. (See Part 16)

         I could not help but compare the Port Adelaide Masonic Building in the form of an Ancient Egyptian Temple with this 17th century Freemasonic headstone. As with the Ancient Egyptian Temple the Sacred Knowledge of Precession is crafted into it.
