Emlong's recent post on occult symbolism in the Back to the Future movies deserves a closer look (particularly with Easter just around the corner). I hadn't heard about it previously, but it is very, very interesting (in an esoteric kind of way).
The message I'm picking up on is that ("for those with eyes to see") the same people who decided JFK had to be brought down are the same ones that determined to take down the Twin Towers. For some reason this group feels the childish need to brag about their "accomplishments" and even mock those who are duped by them. It's a time-honored tradition I suppose.
In this spirit, the Back to the Future trilogy concludes by having a child (who looks eerily like a young GWB) sign out the following statement: "The future for humanity is wide open as long as people continue to service their masters with pleasant enthusiasm!" With leadership like this, how can we possible take the wrong course?
Now that I'm on the cusp of becoming a "senior citizen" I cannot help but feel growing contempt for human beings that so easily sell their souls for a morsel of false security. I can't take back all the work I've done for the human race, but it does now seem like pearls cast before swine. The only ones capable of appreciating it are those that delight in enslaving mankind and laugh at those that unwittingly worship them. So, if you can't be agin 'em, mite as well be fer 'em.
Yesterday I decided to revisit the whole Mayan Calendar thing and came across a page that's been out there since 2012 but I somehow missed it.
See also the article and discussion here:
The charts on the above pages indicate that we are now out of danger in terms of the major comets that plagued Earth over thousands of years (from the end of the last Ice Age). However, that conclusion assumes that scientists have correctly estimated the elapsed time (using tree-rings and ice-core rings) from the last world-wide disaster (circa 1150 BC) until now!
For additional commentary, see:
The narrative structure of "Jacob and Sons" is highly Patriarchal. The emphasis is on sons not daughters. One daughter of Jacob is mentioned, but only in the context of causing trouble for the whole family.
The Adam and Eve model of the solar system was somewhat less Patriarchal in that a feminine leadership principle was explicitly acknowledged. However, Eve is likewise blamed for creating a mess.
In the myths (from which the Biblical accounts are drawn), the role of the goddess is far more prominent, although the goddess is sometimes also depicted as usurping the male role with her feminine wiles. For example, in the "Myth of Enki and Inanna," the goddess Inanna (Hathor) dupes Enki (Ptah) into giving her the divine Me's:
Consistent with this, the planet Jupiter can be associated with the Great Goddess rather than the God Enki/Ptah, and the Joseph type can be relegated to an outer/lessor planet (see table below).
Similarly, the Egyptian goddess Isis tricks Re into revealing his Great Name, and therefore acquires his powers.
As a result, the planet Venus is (even today) more often associated with Isis/Ishtar than it is with the male Simeon/Re typecasting (again, see table below). Consequently, the Biblical Jacob mapping can be viewed as a Patriarchal gloss of Matriarchal influence. For example, the name Zebulun (in the 6th or Jupiter position) derived from the goddess Yzebel. Similarly, the feminine name and characterization of Naphtali is a thinly veiled male make-over of an original goddess figure. The role of the goddess is encoded in the Jacob narrative rather than being outright suppressed. It is disguised only from those who didn't have a broad understanding of non-Jewish religion and myth, as well as royal culture.
The historical context of the Biblical story of Jacob is the New Kingdom reign of Amenhotep II. There were literally 12 princes at the royal court.
However, the royal system of a repeating cycle of 12 (male) rulers (a.k.a. the "12 Amans") was already in place by the start of the Egyptian Old Kingdom and continued in the Middle Kingdom.
This makes it difficult to determine when the planetary model was also changed, or if multiple models continued to be used. Even in the Jacob story, the gas giant planets are represented by the four wives of Jacob, namely Leah (Jupiter), Rachel (Saturn), Bilhah (Uranus) and Zilpah (Neptune). These same four planets are also considered sons of Jacob, namely Zebulun, Dan, Gad and Joseph (see table below).
Within the royal family it was more often than not the queens that dominated court life and kingly succession. Deference by queens to their male counterparts was usually more for public show (to set the example for commoners). Privately the women ruled the royal roost, and the closed (incestuous/endogamous) royal breeding model ensured that the Great Queens maintained control.
The gender attribution of cosmic entities such as planets, stars and constellations is artificial and arbitrary. There are limits to how closely human culture and relationships/genealogies can be patterned after the Cosmos. Cosmic "sex" is also equated with "violence," which also has controversial implications for human reproduction.
Table: Jacob & Sons as Representations of Solar System Objects
Jacob = The Sun
1) Reuben = Mercury ("hot-blooded" and impetuous)
2) Simeon = Venus ("brilliant")
3) Levi = Earth (the "twin" of Simeon)
4) Judah = Mars ("praised" and "poisoned")
5) Issachar/Shechem = Asteroid Belt (the "slain god")
6) Zebulun = Jupiter ("by the waters/sea" of the Asteroid Belt)
7) Dan = Saturn ("The Judge")
8) Gad = Uranus ("fortunate")
9) Joseph and ("half-tribe") Manasseh = Neptune and half-pint Pluto
-------- (Kuiper Belt) --------
10) Asher = Quaoar ("happy"). It now has a highly circular orbit, but is not its former self in magnitude, due to an inter-planetary impact (from Uranus) according to one theory.
11) Naphtali = Eris ("wrestler") Eris/Xenia, high eccentric orbit, but probably not the home wrecker of the inner planets that it once had been.
12) Benjamin = Sedna ("son of the right hand") and his "followers," the other Extreme Trans-Neptune Objects (ETNO's)

... previously on "Fractal Cosmology" ... it was shown that Jacob the Grabber was one of the epithets of our sun, which cannibalized the planets of its rival twin Esau, a Red Dwarf star. The 12 sons of Jacob represent the 12 most significant planetary bodies in our solar system, which also includes around 12 Extreme Trans-Neptune Objects (ETNO's). They also correspond to the 12 most significant constellations of the northern night sky. Little Jacob is our sun. Big Jacob the Grabber is the black hole at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, which is currently in the process of cannibalizing 12 dwarf galaxies!
It was also shown that the roles of Jacob and Adam were very similar types. Adam is an alternative representation of our sun, and corresponds to the Egyptian god Atum. There is also a Little Adam and a Big Adam. Egyptian myth encoded that the formation of our solar system is a miniature version ("fractal iteration") of the formation of the larger galaxy. As the galactic sun/black hole, Atum spit out Shu ("air/gas") and Tefnut ("moisture/water"). These basic elements then clumped together to form Nut (the Milky Way "firmament") and Geb (Cygnus, the volatile "irradiator/fertilizer"). When Atum grew old, he designated Geb (a sort of galactic Esau) as his successor, but Shu disapproved of Geb and ripped him away from Nut (creating the "Great Rift" of the Milky Way?). Nut subsequently defied Shu by giving birth to Osiris/Issachar (Ursa Major) and Seth/Levi (Draco), either by Geb or some other "partner."
In terms of Milky Way cosmology, the rival of Cygnus was Cepheus. In Egyptian Myth, these constellations correspond to Geb and Re. Geb demonstrated physical prowess, however Re embodied intellectual greatness. Both exhibited moral/character weakness.
Within the genealogy of the ancient god-kings (reflected in Genesis), Re (Irad) could be considered the son of Ptah (Enoch). However, as cosmological entities, both Ptah and Ra/Re were also considered to be self-created. The implication is that they were "children of a lessor galactic god," i.e., components of a satellite galaxy (or galaxies) of the Milky Way that are now fully assimilated. In other words, the constellations of Bootes (Ptah/Joseph) and Cepheus (Ra/Simeon) are "adopted sons" of our Jacob-Atum galaxy.
The god-king Re "went down to Egypt" and effectively filled the power vacuum left by an intemperate (and ultimately disgraced) Geb. The heavenly analog is the failure of Cygnus to support complex/intelligent life due to it's hyper-explosiveness. The constellation of Cepheus was therefore home of Proetus, "First Man." The constellation of Cepheus contains the closest and most northerly open star cluster, NGC 188. Not far below (south of) NGC 188 in Cepheus is the deep-field object S5 0014+81, the greatest known black hole in the Universe (10,000 times that of our Milky Way black hole) and also one of the oldest black holes. Despite its age and distance from us, it is still a significant source of radiation.
Our sun ("Little Jacob-Atum") is a middle-aged star. In a few more billion years it will become old, turning first into a red giant before collapsing into a white dwarf. As in Biblical tale, when our sun Jacob dies, his son Joseph (Jupiter) will "close his eyes." On the other hand, our galactic center is already an old man, and as old as the galaxy itself if not older. The Egyptian Myth of Atum indicates that it was not the proto-galaxy that produced the black hole, but the black hole that produced the proto-galaxy. Now that astronomers have surveyed the Universe, it is clear that even new galaxies can have a large (i.e., "old") black hole at the center.
As king and judge over Egypt, Re assumed a solar identity and replaced Geb as successor to Atum. Consistent with this metamorphosis, Re was said to have "cut" himself, thereby producing the Hu ("verbal command") and the Sia ("mind, perception, understanding"). An aging and senile Re retained authority, but Thoth was the brains of the outfit. Re became the new Jacob-Atum (at least in Egypt) and the role of Simeon-Cepheus was largely delegated to the god Thoth. The goddess Isis also gained a share in the role by forcing Re to surrender his name (and perhaps by association, his Hu).
Among the constellations, Proetus (Simeon) and his partner in crime, Draco (Levi), brutalized the constellation of Ursa Major (Issachar) and were disinherited along with Cygnus (Reuben). Henceforth, conditions supporting intelligent life in the galaxy "favored" Ursa Minor (Judah) and Bootes (Joseph).
In the Era of the god-kings, Simeon (Thoth) and Levi (Set) performed the killing of Issachar (Simeon), but Ra took the fall for it. This is however also strangely echoed in the mythology of Cepheus, which was remembered not only as a king, but specifically the king of Ethiopia and/or the Sinai - regions associated with Apocryphal and Biblical Moses, respectively. The constellations of Cepheus (Simeon/Ra) and Draco (Levi/Set) are jointly blamed for the death of Ursa Major (Issachar). However, the god-king Ra is blamed for the death of Osiris. Set and Thoth are only the "hit-men." In solar system terms, it had been Marduk that killed the Kingu, the Osiris planet. Therefore, Re had to become a murderous Marduk as well. It was a fulfillment of his role.
What we have in the story of the god-king Re is the memory of a flesh and blood ruler emulating the grander themes of the solar system and galaxy formation. It is not an exact reproduction of either, but a close ("fractal") variation on both. The typecasting of Re was originally that of a Simeon ("son of seeing/perceiving") figure. It morphed into that of an Atum-Jacob and finally devolved into that of a Marduk figure. The further accretion of a Benjamin (Har-akhte, "Horus of the Horizon") aspect may be the result of later role playing in the early Old Kingdom, namely that of the Horus figure Sekhemwy/Ham.
Note: In the genealogy of the god-kings, Geb is father of the female offspring Isis and Nephthys. However, relationships among the constellations are slightly different. Cepheus (Ra/Re) is considered father of Andromeda (Isis) and wife of Cassiopeia (Hathor). Biological inheritance (on Earth) didn't always match the cosmological pattern (Above).

What are the questions we should be asking to further our understanding of UFO's, the Paranormal... and Everything?
Closed minded people do not help. It does not matter what side of the argument they fall on, whether they be believers or debunkers, if you have made up your mind, you are no longer asking useful questions, you are simply trying to force your views on others. Take the UFO phenomenon. I feel what we can say definitively is that it exists. What it is, well, that is far more complicated. The people who believe it is extra-terrestrial in nature will sometimes be so sure their narrative is right, that they ignore evidence that doesn’t fit their belief system, the same way a debunker will ignore the evidence that there is something significant going on. I think that when you look at the true phenomenon, it has many faces. Most of the evidence that these things are ET’s are antidotal. They come from hypnosis sessions where people find themselves on space ships, occasionally with aliens that tell them right where they are from. And that list is long. I am not going to address the value of hypnosis here, let us assume, when done correctly, by the right people, it is of value. It is still not verifiable evidence. There are those that consciously remember to some degree their abduction experience. Unfortunately, it does not explain what is really happening. If the abduction scenario happens in an altered state, which I think there is a decent amount of evidence to support, then the material retrieved may be very morphic in nature. If it was a very physical phenomenon, then we would often have cases of people missing when they are taken and found later. I have heard a few cases of people being missing, but there should be a lot more. Unfortunately, even if you can verify someone was missing during what they believed to be an abduction experience, that does not verify where they were. If these abductions are happening all the time, we should have that pop up a considerable amount, there should be regular cases where people go missing, are found where they were before, and remember being abducted. It doesn’t happen like that. Maybe we are dealing with ET’s that can alter our consciousness. It’s possible, but not provable at this point. I am not dismissing it as a possible explanation, but I think we have done a lot of assuming to get to that theory. They look like space ships, so they must come from another planet. Really? I mean that could be the case, but it seems to me that they really seem to look like what we expect them to look like. And that is interesting. The phenomenon changes as our culture does. A debunker will use that fact to dismiss the reality of it. They, of course, are wrong to do so. But they have already made up their minds. It does not, however, to me, suggest a nuts and bolts visitation. The fact that clear pictures are rare and far in between says the same to me. With all the reports, and all the tech nowadays, we should have some crystal clear pictures if these things were simple material vehicles. We don’t. And our technology also makes it harder and harder to tell the real photos and videos from the fakes. I have long maintained that we will not understand this, or many other aspects of paranormal phenomena, unless we redefine what we think reality is and how it works. These things do not fit. We need a new view of them, and one from a more novel perspective. We take reality for granted. 99.9% of our experience in this world, makes sense. It’s right there. We know how we interact with it, and it’s stable in its reaction to us. The fringe things, UFO’s and the Paranormal for instance, do not fit those criteria, and I think we trap ourselves into trying to make them fit. None of our ideas work 100%, and I think that is because we have some base assumptions about reality that are wrong.
Let’s look at some things about the UFO Phenomenon that are truly puzzling…
* Dr. Kenneth Ring, in his book The Omega Project, shows some connections between Near-Death Experiencers and UFO Abductees. In particular, both show some of the same after-effects from the experience, and show some similarities in histories and such that may make them more perceptible to the experience.
* Jacques Vallee has, in numerous books, shown the similarities in archetype between many experiences stretching back through the ages of man. From the fairy faith, to religious apparitions, and much more. These seem to all bare resemblance to one another, yet none look like the technological experience of today. They are possibly, however, the same phenomenon.
* Dr. Rick Strassman has shown that there are marked similarities between DMT “trips” and both NDE states and UFO Abductions. They are not exact, but again, there are marked similarities. Graham Hancock has also connected this to ayahuasca “trips” and shamanic rituals. All these altered states seem to connect to the same phenomena that are behind the UFO experience. From my own experience with ceremonial and chaos Magick, I have also seen similarities in my experiences with these beings and those reported by UFO abductees.
* Whitley Strieber has noted the connection with what he calls the Visitor experience and the dead. He has noted a large number of times deceased relatives have been present or have appeared in conjunction with UFO encounters. He has said that the Visitors have something to do with death.
* When Communion from Strieber came out, as well as Missing Time from Budd Hopkins, those were the first time the ‘grey’ alien image went out across our culture in a big way. Before that, the grey alien appeared in some UFO encounters, but by no means all. You have dwarfs, and goblins, and giants, and humans, etc. Once that ‘grey alien’ image proliferated into our culture, it became a far more common in description in the majority of UFO cases. This, however, did not happen in countries where the books were not published. A debunker would site this as proof these experiences are from the imagination or fraudulent. In reality, it is likely because we cannot see the phenomena for what it is, so we put a face on it. That face may be cultural.
* It is possible that the aerial phenomenon and abduction experiences are connected in a way we do not understand. The lights in the sky often behave like plasma. There seem to be window areas and flaps, which may be because it has a connection to the earth, and possibly cosmos. Certain conditions, earthly or otherwise, may allow such phenomena to manifest. They may be conscious in some way as many have noted. Maybe they interact with us by altering our consciousness, or maybe whatever allows them to manifest also affects us in those areas and alters our consciousness. The lights morph in an altered state the same way an external sound can enter our dream state.
* These experiences change us. They are not hallucinations. Hallucinations to not have the after effects, good or bad, that these experiences do.
* These events sometimes have physical consequences. We see unexplained burn marks on the ground; we have the mystery of the implants, radar traces, and various other things that do connect with how we think reality is. These things seem to move across a barrier that we think is there between altered states, the imaginal realm, and solid material reality. They don’t leave the traces that we expect. There is no definitive evidence of crashed saucers, although many believe they exist, until we have actual physical proof, we can’t say they do. It cannot be used to define the phenomenon without that absolute proof. The government plays too many disinformation games.
This is just a sampling of the depth of this phenomenon. To chock it up to being nuts and bolts ET’s ignores some of the implications of all this. I don’t know what it is. It could certainly be ET in some way. It is definitely alien to us, even if it has been here for as long as we have. It could be inter-dimensional, but that again, assumes such a thing exists. John Keel, in the Eighth Tower, made some interesting observations about how that may exist alongside us, but out of our ability to sense them. We do, after all, only sense a very narrow band of our reality. Strieber may be right when he said They have something to do with Death. I would suggest, though, that we do not know what death is. No more than we really know what life is, or what reality is. We have our beliefs, and our assumptions, but what do we truly understand about ourselves and our world? I think here lies that point, where things get blurry, and we cross over to a new way of perceiving. We can’t do that if we think we know all the answers. Instead, we have to ask better questions.

There are a couple of finer points about Noah that open up our understanding of royal history. First of all, the Noah type is a "survivor." He only dies a symbolic death in terms of diminished kingship. His rule is restored after the flood event, but it is generally disregarded by his princely peers. It should also be noted that the institution of kingship itself suffered a major setback with each catastrophic event.
What we consider the historical period (Egyptian Old Kingdom) began after a major environmental disaster. Prior to this event, the Noah figure was actually held as a living god-king, the wise/Solomonic and highly procreative Min (Greek Pan). After, the flood he is a much more humble and obscure king called Ny-netjer. Similarly, Horus the Younger becomes the shadowy Sekhemwy ("Ham"). Shem is found under the Egyptian name Semerkhet and Japheth appears as Peribsen. The "usual" post-Flood suspects are all present and accounted for in the early Old Kingdom!
Secondly, whenever we find a Noah figure in ancient history we should also look for the matching opposite type, the Moses (Marduk) figure. For example, in the tale of Noah and his "sons" it is Ham that performs double duty by also assuming the role of Marduk. It is Ham (as Marduk) that bum-rushes Noah (Kingu) in his drunken stupor. This is why we find a Ham/Horus element in the Biblical Moses story. Moses must be hidden in the bulrushes as an infant (ala Horus), and only later takes on the role of an avenging Marduk figure.
We find this "Horus in the bulrushes" theme with another famous Moses-figure, Sargon the Great. His career must have begun as a Horus, but was transformed into a Marduk when the King of Kish ordered ("hired") Lugal-zagesi to kill Sargon. The uncouth (Enkidu-like) Lugal-zagesi took this as his cue to "steal the tablets of destiny" (so to speak) from the King of Kish. In other words, Lugal-zagesi assumed the role of Kingu/Zu as the brash new "firstborn" among the gods. As a ripple effect, Sargon understood that he must ultimately attack Lugal-zagesi in fulfilment of the Marduk role. However, after vanquishing Lugal-zagesi, he built a new capital city (Agade) rather than taking up residence at Babylon (and restoring it as expected). This was said to have angered the gods and brought about a curse upon him and the city. Sargon was breaking with tradition and this always invited trouble in ancient times!
The combining of Horus and Marduk roles is confusing, however it is not altogether bastardized. Recall that Horus (Benjamin) was considered to be the "right hand/arm" of Marduk, i.e., part of the Marduk complex or god-head. (A "son of Marduk" could also be considered a Judah/Mars figure, such as Pepi II son of Pepi I and Apophis II son of Apophis I in Egyptian royal history.)
What is much more confusing is the hybridization of Marduk with Re. These are very different types. Marduk best associates with Apophis/Pepi, who was the mortal enemy of Atum (Shamash) and is even depicted as attacking the solar boat of Re. How could these types ever be fused? However, it appears that the god-king Re himself had set the precedent. In other words, due to the guilt of Re in the murder of Osiris, he was compelled to add the Apophis/Marduk role to his portfolio of divine typecasting. And Re does in fact become a "deliverer" (ala Moses) in Egyptian Myth:
Conversely, in the Biblical account of the Exodus, Moses is characterized as more than just a wrathful destroyer (ala Apophis), but also a Judge and Law Giver after the god-king Re. This is of course also the role playing that Hammurabi assumed and excelled at.
1) End of the Golden Age
Noah = Min cum Ny-netjer
Moses = Horus cum Sekhemwy
2) End of the Old Kingdom
Noah = Lugal-zagesi
Moses = Sargon the Great cum King Pepi of Egypt
3) End of the Middle Kingdom
Noah = Ny-maatre Amenemhet III cum Ay
Moses = Auibre Hor cum Hammurabi ("Eber")
4) End of the Hyksos Kingdom
Noah = Djehuty-mes ("Abraham")
Moses = King Apophis cum Tao ("Terah")
5) End of the Egyptian 18th Dynasty
Noah = Neb-maatre Amenhotep III cum Aye
Moses = Amenhotep IV cum Akhenaten
There is an amazing coherency to ancient history that derived from role playing by the royal family. The grand cycle of the gods was re-enacted with every major dynasty. It is this structure that establishes the "context" by which we can reconstruct their history and its proper chronology. Without it the situation is hopeless! Royal adaptations of the original archetypes complicated things, but it also allows us to now discern the continuity that existed from the first pharaoh to the very last.

According to the ancient cosmologists, the impact of Uranus with “Marduk” was the defining moment in the formation of our solar system and the creation of Earth. The Biblical story of the Great Flood encodes this colossal collision from the perspective of Uranus, that is, with Uranus (“Noah”) as the faithful servant of the gods and victim/survivor of planetary violence. The Biblical story of the Exodus encodes the very same “primal scene,” but with Marduk (“Moses”) as its checkered champion. The two events enclose the “human interest” stories of the Torah like a couple of book ends.
The Exodus account of the Bible takes after “Joseph” had become “disrespected,” that is, when the planet Jupiter was trumped, first by usurpation of Neptune and then by Uranus, which had each in turn taken the orbital “pole position” inside the orbit of Jupiter.
As in the Flood, the Biblical Exodus story is a composite of multiple events of high impact. The main event is of course the cosmological story that derived from the simultaneously destructive and creative conflict between “naturalized” planet Uranus and the staunchly “foreign” Marduk. However, the Exodus also incorporates the catastrophic event that led to the end of the Golden Age of the Gods (time of Re), as well as deliberate repetitions staged in the Egyptian Middle Kingdom (time of Hammurabi) and New Kingdom (time of Akhenaten). The slaying of the “hard taskmaster” by Moses is associated with the slaying of Osiris by conspiracy of Re with Set and Thoth during the time of the god-kings of Egypt. Re was placed in the role of Marduk and Osiris had assumed the status of a “firstborn” among the younger generation of gods. Even later still, Hammurabi (Egyptian Auibre Hor) played the role of Marduk in the Egyptian Middle Kingdom and Akhenaten did the same for New Kingdom Egypt. The histories of all these distinct periods were layered upon the original pattern derived from the planetary formation model (sequence of events). For this reason it is difficult to decipher the Exodus narrative, but the individual threads can still be separated with some care.
Perhaps the most famous verse of the Exodus account is Exodus 12:12, “Against all the gods of Egypt I execute my judgment.” The severe, even barbaric wrath of “the Lord Marduk” was against all of the planets of the rival solar system, and the designated judgment seat was near what we call the Asteroid Belt. The terrestrial analog of this location was the River Nile. Conflict between the two suns is framed as the competition between Egypt and Mesopotamia. The sun-god of Egypt was Atum-Re. The sun-god of Babylon was Marduk. They are not the precisely the same, but represent aspects of rival twin solar systems. The center of worship for one is Babylon in Aram Naharaim (“between the two rivers” of the Tigress and Euphrates). The center of the other is Egypt along the Nile.
The appearance of Marduk (in “Egypt”) elicited exactly nine named “terrors,” as told by the Enuma Elish: vipers, dragons, sphinxes, Great-lions, mad-dogs, scorpion-men, mighty lion-demons, dragon-flies, and centaurs. The 10th terror is the death of Tiamat along with her “firstborn” consort, Kingu, which collectively represents the planet Uranus and the watery/gaseous atmosphere it acquired upon defecting to the rival solar system. In the Exodus account, there are also precisely nine plagues: blood, frogs, gnats/lice, flies, killing of livestock, boils, hail, locusts, and darkness. This is followed by the sacrifice of the firstborn son of Pharaoh and other Egyptians, which is again a terrestrial dramatization of an archetypal celestial act.
In the related Myth of Zu, Zu corresponds to Marduk and is called the “evil bird.” In Exodus, the wife of Moses is called Zipporah, “the little bird,” or in other words, the female counterpart. Zipporah exclaims to Moses, “What a bloody husband you are to me.” In fact, Zipporah has two husbands. The preferred/chosen husband of “wicked” Tiamat is Kingu (Pharaoh), but a marriage to Marduk (Moses) is essentially forced upon her. And what a messy marriage that turned out to be in cosmological terms. As in the tale of Cain and Abel, planetary “blood” was shed, and this required the symbolic shedding of human blood in remembrance of it.
In the Torah, Moses has a prominent sister who speaks out against him and then mysteriously dies. Uranus was the “sister planet” of Marduk and the same planet that confronted Marduk. Marduk flies in the face of Tiamat, the feminine aspect of Uranus. Similarly, the beautiful face of Nefertiti (“The Younger Lady”) was found smashed on her mummy. Violence during the Amarna Period had escalated beyond the use of substitutes. Actual royal persons, such as Nefertiti and Smenkhkare, were being literally “struck down” for defying the “rebel” Akhenaten. Real life was closely imitating cosmic art.
Note: Zipporah hailed from the south, as the solar system she represents seems to have been inclined/below that of the rival solar system, that of Marduk. The “Serpent” strikes from above, the “Woman/Eve” from below.
Like the mythical bird Zu, Moses takes possession of the “tablets” (of destiny). He breaks them and subsequently replaces them. Marduk, with face radiating, lays down the law in terms of orbital dynamics. He destroyed the old (ineffectual) system and founded a rigid “new covenant” of planetary ethics and life-supporting harmony. The transition process was, however, not a smooth one.
Due to the inter-planetary “train wreck,” the central element of Marduk, the future planet Mercury, was stripped of its crust and almost down to its iron core. According to the Exodus account, this “mantle” passed from Moses to Joshua, who is of the Benjamin typecasting. This apparently encodes that the missing crust of Mercury is now orbiting among the Extreme Trans-Neptune Objects (ETNO’s). Even more specifically, it may have become the largest of the ETNO’s, which we now called Eris. In the parallel formulation of Jacob & Sons, Reuben (Mercury) slept with Bilhah (Uranus) and produced Naphtali (Eris?). By implication, the mantle of Mercury was separated and perhaps ended up “accompanying” Sedna (Benjamin?) instead.
Another clue to the cosmology is that Joshua was “sent ahead” of the Exodus party to “scout out the land and its occupants.” This probably indicates that the planetary Joshua/Benjamin was first propelled from the collision toward the inner solar system, but the size of this component of Marduk was small, which ultimately resulted in an extreme orbit. “The people” were slow/reluctant to follow Joshua into the “Promised Land.” Because of their “stubbornness” the original denizens would have to be driven out “little-by-little” (Exodus 23:30) rather than all at once. This large group of native objects is referred to as the Amalek tribe in the Exodus account, which signifies “First Nation” in Hebrew. In a cosmological sense, this must amount to loose debris from the proto-planetary disk rather than the by-product of the massive planetary collision.
In the Exodus account, Moses takes some heat for striking “The Rock” repeatedly rather than only once. Life-giving water is not released with the first blow, so Moses hits it again. The collision of Marduk with Uranus was in fact depicted as a multiple trauma. Marduk first parts the waters of Tiamat with its main body, but also packs a punch with its “right arm,” that is, with its “Benjamin” satellite. Exodus 15:3-18 reads, “Your right hand [Benjamin] … majestic in power … shattered the enemy … threw down those who opposed … unleased your burning anger … consumed them … the earth swallowed them … you will lead the people you have redeemed … the nations will hear and tremble … until you plant them on the mountain [Earth or Mars] of your inheritance.”
Joshua, the right hand man of Exodus, is the successor of Moses, but he is not explicitly named as his son. The relationship is left somewhat ambiguous. In royal history a Joshua figure (such as Salitis) was often not the literal son of the Moses figure (such as Hammurabi), but was by necessity a close relation. The “firstborn” (Uranus) that was called upon to aid the gods in ridding themselves of dangerous Marduk is variously referred to as Eliezer (“God of Help”) and Joktan (“Diminished,” i.e., beheaded, reduced in size). In New Testament times, Joktan takes the form of “John the Baptist.”
Marduk and the motley band of Israelites he has liberated do not go directly to their appointed place, but wander in the wilderness for an entire generation. They encounter both bitter water and sweet, even as there is bitter (deuterium) water and sweet water scattered about the solar system. The people “quarreled” and “grumbled” against Moses even as the asteroids must have had their share of strife before settling down into relatively stable orbits. In the Book of Numbers 22, Balaam is summoned to curse the problematic Israelites, but ended up blessing them. Likewise, the “hired man” Enkidu changes his curse to a blessing in the Epic of Gilgamesh. Today, the opinion of asteroids is also changing from one of threat only to more of a mixed blessing. Asteroids can do damage, but they are now being considered as a potentially valuable resource as well.
Moses does not tolerate opposition within the ranks, and is renowned for blinding enemies. Marduk literally “gouges out the eyes” of Uranus using the “right arm (of Benjamin)” and possibly also with another companion, the “warrior prince” Judah/proto-Mars. Consequently, the two members that are removed from a “diminished” Uranus become the light-receiving planets Venus and Earth.
As Moses leads the people further and further away, the Korah Rebellion breaks out. Korah (son of Izhar son of Kohath, an epithet of Jacob) protests the rough treatment of Moses and is summoned to appear before the imperious judge. Korah refuses to obey and is swallowed up along with the Reubenites Dathan and Abiram. The corresponding passage in the Epic of Gilgamesh is the one in which Gilgamesh (“Moses”) digs a well as a trap for the monster Humbaba. By association, the Korah Rebellion is an alternate representation of the planetary encounter of Mercury with Neptune. The name Korah (“icy, bald”) is perhaps the best one word epithet possible for the planet Neptune and especially its bald-headed retrograde moon Triton. This former part of Uranus (“Izhar”/Issachar) seems to have remained with Neptune as Marduk’s calling card, along with a couple of Marduk’s (“Reuben’s”) own fractured bits, “Dathan and Abiram.”
The beleaguered Israelites are next steered around the territory of Edom, that is, objects belonging to the rival twin’s solar system (whose “waters had intermingled”) and therefore were impeding progress of the Exodus party. Moses raised a serpent, the emblem of Marduk’s native solar system, upon a pole, representing the painful integration with our solar system. Through this sign of solidarity, the people gain a victory and safe passage through Moab. The people would soon cross over. But, as for Marduk, the mission was now complete. For his “sin” Moses himself cannot reach the “Promised Land,” but must fall short. Moses dies in the Trans-Jordan and his body is claimed by the Lord for burial. Mercury was kicked back past the Asteroid Belt and is now “interred” closest to our deified sun.
Note: The Nile and Jordan rivers were evidently viewed as a terrestrial reflection of the double-banded Asteroid Belt and were the southern/western counterpart of the Tigress-Euphrates (“Naharaim”) Kuiper Belt system.
Note: Joseph had once been cast into a (gravitational) pit and had to be rescued by two brothers. His bones were later to be removed from another pit, Lower Egypt (the Delta), and eventually placed in Upper Egypt (Valley of the Kings). Similarly, the planet Jupiter seems to have migrated slightly, and from a place of “disrespect” to its current (restored) position of dominance in the solar system.

In previous sections it was concluded that much of the planetary material of our "Adam-Jacob" solar system was acquired from our long-lost twin star "Serpent-Esau." Even so, the sun itself is thought to possess 99% of our solar system's mass. The presence of all the known planets, asteroids and other matter of the solar system does not appreciable alter the center of mass of the entire solar system. This center of revolution ("barycenter") is calculated to be only 30,000 km from the center of the sun, whose radius is around 700,000 km. Consequently, this results in only a very small "limp" and one that seems hardly worthy of mythologizing.
The bigger "limp" of our solar system is of course known as the Precession of the Equinoxes, or simply Precession for short, which is a grand swagger that repeats over a 24,000-26,000 year cycle. Curiously enough, Jacob's permanent limp is attributed to his "wrestling" with and "prevailing" over Esau. This is perhaps some indication that our twin star is still influencing the solar system from afar. This idea is further supported by the orbits of the Extreme Trans-Neptune Objects, including Sedna and the newly discovered "Biden" that have orbits in apparent resonance with the precession cycle. (The orbit of Sedna is ~12,000 years.)
NASA has ruled out any relatively large objects within the Oort Cloud, but presently cannot entirely exclude an object just outside the Oort Cloud.
Other researchers suspect that our solar system may be gravitationally bound to the Sirius star system (8.6 light-years away), as it does not appear to be effected by Precession along with the rest of the night sky. Sirius is a much younger star system than ours, so it cannot be the original binary twin. However, that does not mean it cannot effect our sun's current trajectory through the galaxy. In fact, the current phenomenon of Precession could be a complex mix of stellar influences from our galactic neighborhood, as well as our general orbit around the center of the galaxy.
Nothing in the universe moves in a straight line. Even an airplane moving through Earth's atmosphere assumes two distinct "longitudinal oscillations," known as the short period and the long ("fugoid") period.

"Star-Hopper" is the name given to a planet that moves from one binary star to its twin, either by collision or other means. It's an unfortunate term in that "Star-Hopping" is also used to describe the nocturnal behavior of amateur star-gazers.
The major study to date on Star-Hoppers (the planetary kind) was done several years ago by Kaitlin M. Kratter at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
"We find that stellar evolution can trigger dynamical instabilities that drive planets into chaotic orbits. This instability leads to planet-star collisions, exchange of the planet between the binary stars ('star-hoppers') ..."
Her research indicates that planets are more likely to change orbits from one binary to another when there is a large size difference between the twin stars. Her research and paper on star-hopping concentrated on older star systems, however the same principle would seem to apply to a younger binary pair in which one was a larger star (like our sun) and the twin was a smaller star (such as a Red or Brown Dwarf).
Dr. Kratter since transferred to the University of Colorado where she hosted a lecture on binary star and associated planet simulation:
She has subsequently "hopped on over" to the University of Arizona:
