Asking the Wrong Questions… UFO’s and Beliefs

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.

The Noah Cycle (Destruction, Survival and Renewal)

Whenever we find a Noah figure in ancient history we should also look for the matching (opposite) type, that is, the Moses (Marduk) figure. For example, in the tale of Noah and his "sons" it is Ham that performs the Marduk role by bum-rushing Noah (Kingu) in his drunken stupor. This is why we also find a Ham/Horus element in the Biblical Moses story. The baby Moses must be hidden in the bulrushes as an infant (ala Horus), and only later takes on the additional 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" (satellite) 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:

http://www.domainofman.com/book/tut-2.html

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 was remembered for.

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.

Holy Moses!

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 and partner of Zu. 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.

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 harmonics. The transition process was, however, a tumultuous 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.”

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, opinions about asteroids are 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.

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.”

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. A remnant of the people would eventually cross over the Jordan. 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.

Jacob's Limp, Revisited

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.

The Star-Hopper

"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.

http://arxiv.org/abs/1204.2014
http://astrobites.org/2012/04/12/star-ho...

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).

http://www.space.com/26686-weird-alien-p...

Dr. Kratter since "changed her orbit" to the University of Colorado where she hosted a lecture on binary star and associated planet simulation:

See video

Subsequent to this, she has "hopped over" to the University of Arizona:

Calling Out All Astrophysicists!

Here is an open challenge to model an original binary star system based on the insights gained from this study. The basic steps are:

1) Demonstrate the feasibility of Saturn being captured (from the twin sun system) through a rear/below ("ambush") impact from Neptune. The impact had to result not only in the capture of Saturn, but also the switching of its orbit to prograde around the new sun (i.e., our sun). This could have been accomplished by a hit from Neptune that was slightly below/behind Saturn, and which caused Saturn to swing out and around the opposing sun. This impact would also have caused the post-impact orbit of Neptune to have become much larger. A tighter initial orbit would have given Neptune the additional leverage and the correct “angle of attack” to swing the orbit of Saturn.

2) Demonstrate the feasibility of Uranus being captured (from the twin sun system) through a key-hole type interaction with Jupiter and/or Saturn or a grazing impact with Neptune. The myths don't describe exactly how Uranus "came over" to our sun, only that it had turned mercenary (i.e., had been "hired with a price").

3) Demonstrate the feasibility of the rocky planets Venus and Earth being created by a nearly head-on (“slicing, beheading”) impact to proto-Uranus from a smaller but very dense planet (iron-rich proto-Mercury) that had in its tow at least two satellites (with the size and density of proto-Mars and proto-Sedna). The impact was such that "diminished" Uranus (itself newly captured) moved to an outer orbit. The planetoids of the far smaller impacting group were repelled backwards and assumed various prograde orbits around our sun. Proto-Mercury was repelled almost 180 degrees and "led" Uranus toward the orbital position of Neptune. Mars deflected into an inner orbit. The smallest of the invading group, proto-Sedna, was bounced toward an even more extreme outer (Trans-Neptune) orbit. Note that prior to the impact Uranus would have had a nearly identical size to Neptune. It lost about two Earth-masses due to the collision.

Not of This Earth

"Modern Science" has difficulty coming to grips with extremely rare events. It demands certainty and repeatability. However, processes in the Universe are so random that every solar system could in fact be unique. The odds of our solar system taking the precise configuration we now see are essentially zero. It may not be possible with any simulation (and certainly not with any that exists today) to reproduce exactly what happened in our neck of the galactic woods. And this in turn tells us something about the Universe. It is more about extremes than averages. It is a place where anything that can happen eventually does happen, but it might not ever happen again! Only a miniscule change in initial conditions can produce an entirely different outcome. Where and how life takes root is not entirely predictable, if at all predictable. That is not to say that life cannot and has not developed in other solar systems. It most definitely has, but probably with a different set of adaptations.

Is the ancient cosmology derived from Myth and the Bible perfect? Surely not, either due to the distortions of time and cultural retelling, or the inherent challenge of reconstructing complex cosmic interactions that occurred billions of years ago. Regardless, our solar system was “special” enough for someone or something (God, ET, or whatever you prefer) to make the extraordinary effort of determining its basic origins and formation, that is, to derive its own custom cosmology (from the reference frame of Earth). If this were not enough, the cosmology of our solar system was further connected to another specific but larger cosmology of the Milky Way Galaxy. This layered, fractal-like cosmology was then imprinted upon human civilization in the form of allegories, and kept alive through role playing in each successive generation of the ancient royal family.

Although there is a little more astronomical detail that can be squeezed out of the stories of Jacob, Joseph and Moses, it is already abundantly clear that the entirety of Genesis and Exodus hangs on a sophisticated cosmological framework - at least what was left of it at the time those books were composed. Each Patriarch and Matriarch encodes an aspect of a cosmological story that is every bit as bizarre as it is fixed. There is also a very high degree of consistency between the Biblical narratives and the Mythological sources from which they were drawn. In other words, it doesn’t appear that anyone could have just made this up. It is a vestige of received knowledge that came from someone or something “not of this Earth.”

Live Long, and Prosper

Today the Sci-fi community mourns the loss of possibly the most infamous name in space travel...Leonard Nimoy. He was 83.

See video
/> As a science fiction lover who grew up on Star Trek and Star Wars, the news of this really kicked me in the face. But perhaps most saddening was not the Vulcan's passing, but the insensitive way the talk show radio hosts made fun of the devotees of Nimoy (cosplayers and Vulcans) who were kind enough to send the family of Nimoy a simpathy letter. I don't care your opinion on fans, but too make fun of them now in their time of grief, what a low piece of shit you are! If I could get a recording of it I would but a small town New Jersey radio station probably wouldn't be easy to find. He was more than an actor and more than Spock. He was a poet and a brilliant actor. Does anyone remember the 1970s/80s series "In Search Of"? Well I do and I loved watching it on YouTube since I wasn't alive when it was on the sir. Better than any of the crap History Channel put on nowadays. But a digress. Take a moment to remember Nimoy today, he inspired many of us to boldly go where we hadn't before...

RIP Mr. Nimoy...see you in the next life.

"Look to the Stars"

After Noah, no other figure receives more than a passing mention until Abraham. The Old Kingdom in particular appears to be slighted by the Genesis authors. Nimrod (Pharaoh Narmer) gets a two-verse nod as a killer on the level of the Lord (Ninurta-Marduk), but that’s all. The main person of interest in Genesis is not a hunter-warrior (i.e., destroyer), but a mild-mannered cultivator of human relations and the celestial arts. He is reckoned as deserving of twelve entire chapters (Genesis 12 -23) and portions of two others (Genesis 24-25). Abraham is the central character of the Book of Genesis. He is also the one curiously commanded to look toward the heavens and even count the stars. In extra-biblical tradition, Abraham is more specifically identified as the leading astronomer of his Age. With this now in mind, an interpretation of the Torah from the perspective of astrophysics and cosmology takes on renewed focus and significance.

The reserved and stately Abraham is the renaissance man of his times. Although his wife was barren, Abraham not only allows her to seek other partners, but escorts her to the courts of highly qualified relatives. (Genesis 12) With chivalry Abraham avoids conflict, almost to a fault. (Genesis 13) Yet, when a World War is inevitable he also becomes a deciding factor in its outcome. As in the days of Noah, there was “drought in the land.” And again, something big is about to break loose. In the so-called war of “Four Kings Against Five” (Genesis 14), Abraham is implicitly the tenth king in a “pantheon” of ancient kings. Also, as the eldest son of Terah, Abraham is the “firstborn” in terms of kingly inheritance (“birthright”), and therefore initially the greatest of the ten. However, he survives a flood of invaders by voluntarily laying down his claim to kingship for the greater good.

According to the received planetary model, our four inner rocky planets could only be “born” and established through the “death” of a gas giant planet. Uranus lost its place as the innermost planet and became instead one of the five outer planets. It joined the three other gas giants and an Extreme Trans-Neptune Object (ETNO) Sedna (with its “followers”). Likewise, Abraham lost out in terms of the royal succession of his day, but gained a form of immortality (ala Noah) from the role he played in establishing a New Covenant and New Kingdom on the Earth. After the ugly conflict, peace was proclaimed by the High Priest Melchizedek (“King of Righteousness”), a name associated with the high-minded Joseph/Ptah typecasting). This echoes the restored order to the solar system regulated by upright Jupiter in the early solar system, and one that continues to this day!

Of all the remnants of Marduk, the planet Mars had the best chance of supporting life. Although Mars tragically died as a planet, it had a significant role in helping Earth become a place that did reach the next level of planetary success. In the story of Abraham, there are two episodes that emulate the rescue of Mars, first from capture by hostile forces and then from fiery destruction. A third episode encodes the ultimate demise of Mars.

The rescue of Mars is dramatized by Abraham’s recovery of his nephew Lot during the battle of “Four Kings Against Five,” and again during Abraham’s mission of mercy to Sodom and Gomorrah, which were destroyed by missiles from above.” The name Lot is short for Nimlot and a close variant of Nimrod, “the mighty hunter before the Lord” (mentioned above). In the second rescue (Genesis 19), Abraham is not able to save the towns of Sodom and Gomorrah (as there was no hope for Mercury and Sedna), but does negotiate for the liberation of Lot (Mars) and his two daughters. Mars has no surviving moons of large size. There are, however, two small moons, Phobos and Deimos, that have very low orbits, much like the daughters of Lot around their demoralized father.

The third Mars-related episode is the “sacrifice” of Isaac. (Genesis 22) It is very bizarre and downright cruel in human terms, but comprehensible as enacted cosmology. After being saved from capture or collision with a larger planet (such as Jupiter or even the Sun), Mars showed early potential for life. Yet, it ultimately lost its atmosphere and internal heat. Its demise was likely hastened by a steady pounding from asteroids, many of which would have been the by-products of the very collision that created Mars as an independent planet in the first place. The same planet, Uranus, that “fathered” Mars was also responsible for “killing” it. Hence, the very strange portrayals of Lot's rescue and Isaac's sacrifice in Genesis. Lot and Isaac are two complementary elements of a single planetary role. Both were needed to fulfill the total cosmology. (See note below.)

The heroes of Genesis were callously swept aside by their more ruthless lords of their day. We wouldn’t even have heard about Abraham if not for the Book of Genesis. We are told that Abraham purchased a tomb among the Hittites, “the Sons of Terror.” (Genesis 23) This reflects the “burial” of Uranus way out toward the menacing Kuiper Belt. Uranus passed beyond the visible planets. Likewise, Abraham left almost no trace in the archaeological record, and certainly little that would identify him as one of the most influential persons of all time. This irony and paradox is the main spiritual message of Genesis. One does not necessarily have to be ruler of the world (“win the election”) to change the world. It is the same message that resounds in the plays of Shakespeare that were produced by a doomed royal court in exile. And in a world of seven billion people, it is a theme that we still hope can be true today. Is it still possible for an individual to transcend their circumstances and become that “100th monkey” or “black swan” that breaks the mold and alters the future? Can something transitory still leave an indelible mark? Is it still possible for a rejected person to become the founder of an acceptable movement.

Note: Abraham’s legal son and heir Isaac had not yet been born at the time of the great battle of “Four Kings Against Five.” Therefore, the role of Mars had to be played by an older prince.

Note: As the role of Moses (Marduk) would later assimilate an aspect of Noah (Uranus), so the role of Abraham (Uranus) deliberately assimilates an aspect of Moses (Marduk). When Abraham goes to Egypt, a plague is brought down on the house of pharaoh, after which Abraham flees with the spoils of the court. This was a subtle jab at the barbaric, aggressive role of Marduk-Bel, and simultaneously venerating the more civilized Abraham as the greatest role player of his generation and of all time. A more cynical view would be that the royal court needed role players, and therefore also found it necessary to establish paragons of fidelity for future courtiers to emulate.
