Castration Anxiety

Before moving on with the Genesis narrative, here are the major points of comparison with the Hittite Creation Epics, Mesopotamian Creation Stories, as well as Egyptian and Greek Myths:

(1) Kumarbis, like Marduk-Bel is a complex god/planet and consists of many elements:

(a) Adad/Teshub the Storm God (Horus the Elder) comes forth from the “body” of Kumarbis. In other words, Adad was attached to Marduk/Kumarbis prior to the solar system defining collision. The prominence of the Hittite Storm God Adad/Teshub (proto-Mars) also mirrors that of Adad and Horus the Elder in the Mesopotamian and Egyptian stories, and again points to an extra-solar system (galactic) bias related to the importance of Ursa Minor, the Storm God constellation.

(b) Ullikummis the son of Adad (Horus the Younger son of Horus the Elder) is also very prominent. There is much concern for the safety of Ullikummis and he is hidden away in a marsh, even as Horus the Younger was hidden away in his youth. Ullikummis is also small like the younger Horus, but exceptionally strong (as if made of “diorite”). As in the Epic of Gilgamesh, he is the human/mortal element of the divine Marduk planetary complex. In the Hittite version, he is even said to have been born of a human, i.e., a commoner mother, which makes him the Hittite analog of Hercules. Ullikummis is fashioned as a “rival to the gods,” which also relates to the larger role of Marduk.

(c) Ubelluris is a third member of the Hittite Marduk, and this name clearly evokes Marduk’s epithet of Bel. Mythographers liken him to the Greek Atlas, which further corresponds to the Egyptian god Geb and Hebrew Reuben eldest son of Jacob. We have previously idenitified this aspect of Marduk as the future planet Mercury.

The Hittite tale places the little god Ullikummis at the right shoulder of Ubelluris (prior to the impact that led to the dissolution of Kumarbis/Marduk), which seems to relate to a Biblical epithet of Horus the Younger, that being, Benjamin the “son of the right (side/hand/shoulder).”

The role of the "right arm" in this planetary battle is also glorified in the Biblical Song of Moses (Marduk):

"Thy right hand, O Lord, glorious in power, thy right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy. In the greatness of thy majesty thou overthrowest thy adversaries; thou sendest forth thy fury, it consumes them like stubble. At the blast of thy nostrils the water piled up, the floods stood up in a heap; the deeps congealed in the heart of the sea." -Exodus 15:6-8 (RSV)

(d) The Dragon Illuyankas is perhaps a fourth member of the Kumarbis group, or simply a name for Kumarbis or one of the main constituents, such as Ubelluris. There is a clear correspondence between the “Dragon” and characterizations of Apophis in Egypt and Bel of Babylon.

(2) As in Genesis 4, the Hittite version begins with the “killing” of Alal (Abel) by Anus (Cain). This is followed by the castration of Anus by Kumarbis, which is also a central theme in the Biblical version. Cain (Anus) complains that the blow to his manhood is more than he can bear. This metaphor carried over into Greek mythology, as well. Chronos (Saturn/Abel) is said to have castrated Uranus (Neptune/Cain) after which he was in turn overthrown by Zeus (Jupiter). Note the inversion of the Cain and Abel story in the Greek version, i.e., Saturn ambushing Neptune instead of the other way around!

Science Can Never Prove That GOD Exists.

"Science can never prove or disprove the existence or non-existence of any non-thing that exists merely as a Non-Physical Spiritual Entity. After all; that is not the Purpose nor Ability of Science, of Scientific Observations, Measurements, and Deductions! When it comes to whether or not We have Souls, whether or not there is a Non-Physical and hence Indestructible Spiritual Realm, and furthermore, the possibility of the Existence of A Metaphysical Collective Source-Entity, which We might call G8D...the G8D that Baruch Spinoza and Albert Einstein and I, Jean-Pierre A. Fenyo, Philosopher of Ethics, etc., think Exists....then Our only evidence will be purely from Personal Emotional, Intuitive, Subjective Experiences that We can help others consider, but can never prove Scientifically through any Experiments whatsoever! As to whether or not such an Entity ( G8D ) and its Extensions ( Souls ) have a or some set of aspects that allow "it" and/or "us" to enter into a relationship with Things in The Physical Realm, and Interact with, Create through, Experience by and Communicate with One-Another: that is where each individual person must be Free to Wonder in Awe at the very Existence of Life! For all We yet have ever been able to Know About Life through Science has not yet ever provided an Explanation as to why Wondering and Enjoying and Loving Life and Loving Being Loved Para-Mutually Means so much to Us! If anything, Science does prove that it could never Prove the Existence of Anything Beyond that which is Physical, because the very Nature of any G8D, Spiritual Realm and Soul would have to be Non-Physical. So, in the meantime, while you are seeking your own answers, do not waste your Life! Live Up To Yourself, Laugh About All That is Weird, Quirky and Ridiculous, and Love With A Passion!"

50 Shades of Greys

In the Genesis (4:23) narrative, Lamech admits to his two wives:

“I have slain a man for wounding me, a young man for striking me.”

This murder confession of Lamech is of course the other main event in Genesis 4. Lamech has no particular meaning in Hebrew, but instead derives from the name given to the rival twin sun system in the Enuma Elish, that being Lahmu. The major rocky planet of that solar system was the lone hold-out, but was ultimately transformed from an orbit contrary (retrograde) to our sun, to a collection of planets in prograde around our sun. Similarly, the name Lah(k)mu in the Enuma Elish was transposed into Lamech in Genesis. The remains of the rogue planet were no longer “evil,” but had become “wise and beneficial.”

Note: The Hebrew word laham means, “to wound, burn. The Hebrew word lecham means to “battle, consume, devour.”

The above quoted verse is just one in a long line of deliberate inversions and non sequiturs in Genesis. Marduk had collided with the “young man” (Kingu/Uranus) first, and then the older planet (Anu/Neptune). It was therefore also not a lone incident of “manslaughter” but a “double homicide.” Was it justifiable? In planetary terms, yes, because it resulted in the formation of the Earth. In human terms, it is less clear. Regardless, the double deed of Marduk/Lamech was more than doubly (“seven times”) punished. Marduk had taken matters into his own hands, and the various components of Marduk (Mercury, Mars and Sedna) did not fare well after the crash. Mercury holds the dubious distinction of being closest to the Sun. Mars was close to landing in the Goldielocks Zone, but was also close to the hazardous Asteroid Belt.

There is in fact a sense of planetary poetic justice in this “received” model of solar system development. Marduk first confronted the defector (or even “betrayer”) of his original sun (Lahmu). Consistent with this, the planet Uranus (Enkidu) is described as “hired” in the Epic of Gilgamesh. One of the Biblical epithets of this planet, Issachar, means “he brings his reward/bounty.” Uranus was a turncoat and Marduk made him pay the price. Nevertheless, out of this “evil” scenario came the “good” of life on Earth.

Next, Marduk (or what was left of it) went after Neptune (Cain), the former “assassin” of Marduk’s former compatriot Saturn (Abel). Marduk in effect “avenged” the death of Saturn, which had been captured by an “angry and dejected” Neptune. These planetary pay-backs epitomized the tribal justice of early man, and also reflect the chaos of the early solar system and cosmos. It is not the higher justice we hope and strive for in a world that is becoming more orderly and civilized.

In different versions (Babylonian and Assyrian) of the Enuma Elish, Marduk is variously identified as the son of Lahmu and the son of Ea. The largest planet Ea (Jupiter) had a significant gravitational role in just about every aspect of early solar system development. However, as we have learned, the true pedigree of Marduk was in the twin solar system of Lahmu. Likewise, Moses was sometimes referred to as the “son of Joseph (son of Jacob),” but his role was that of Marduk “son of” the red dwarf sun “Esau.”

We are now finally able to take a stab at decoding the first genealogy of Adam in Genesis 4.


Adam = the Sun (“father of the gods”)

Eve = Jupiter (“mother of the gods”)

Cain = Neptune, Anu, the first “firstborn” of the Enuma Elish

Abel = Saturn, Mummu of the Enuma Elish

Enoch = Uranus (Enki-du), Kingu, pre-impact, the youthful king and new “firstborn” of the gods

Irad (“fugitive”) = Zu-Marduk-Bel, pre-impact

Mehujael (“smitten by God”) = Uranus, post-impact

Methushael (“he who is of God”) = Mars (largest surviving element of Marduk, post-impact)

Lamech = Mercury (second largest surviving element of Marduk, post-impact)


As in the Enuma Elish, when a planet undergoes a significant transition (in orbital position or celestial role) a name change is considered appropriate. For example, Jupiter is variously called Kishar, Ea/Nudimmud and Gaga (or “Lady Gaga” if you prefer!). A planet can be masculine or feminine. This is rather arbitrary and fluid in the various expressions of ancient cosmology. The Enuma Elish is predominantly Patriarchal/masculine. Tiamat (“Mother Hubur,” who was filling her planetary cupboard) is the only explicitly female “character” of any note. In the Epic of Gilgamesh, more than one goddess is important. Also, in that formulation the god Anu has an implicit alter ego, Hawawa/Humbaba. Collision, first with Saturn and then with Mercury, transformed the once exalted planet Neptune into an exiled monster whose deformities included a large (29 degree) axial tilt and a retrograde moon (Triton).

There is even more to Genesis 4 than the tale of planetary duels. The planets were not the first to “live in tents and raise livestock,” “play the harp and flute,” and “forge all kinds of tools out of bronze and iron.” (verses 21-22) It was the terrestrial gods and not the planetary gods who bestowed the gifts of fire, music and domesticated animals upon mankind. Genesis Chapter 4 is telling at two stories with a single narrative. It is patterning the so-called god-kings of the Zep Tepi after the planets. It’s a narrative structure quite foreign to us today, but still highly consistent with an ancient world in which everything had to derive from divine precedent.

In the Zep Tepi (“First Time”), it is Seth and Thoth (Levi and Simeon) that conspire to kill Osiris (Issachar). This event is patterned after the cosmology of the Milky Way Galaxy rather than that of our solar system. Recall that the constellations of Simeon and Levi (Cepheus and Draco) forced the constellation of Ursa Major (Issachar, the Thigh) into “servitude/tribute,” although what that represented in practice is difficult to say. In the cosmology of our solar system, Simeon/Thoth and Levi/Seth (Venus and Earth) were the by-products of a planetary “killing” (Marduk striking proto-Uranus) and were not themselves the “killers.”

The genealogy of Genesis 4 is not a pure genealogy, but has more to do with cosmological and kingly progressions. It preserves the main sequence and relationships. As shown below, the list of Patriarchs and Matriarchs in Genesis can be equally applied to the planets of the solar system and to the pantheon of deities that was worshipped the world over. What we have is a form of literary compression and encryption. The Book of Genesis is a Hermetic work, and requires knowledge of its sources as a key to decoding.

Adam = Atum

Eve = Iussas/Hathor (“Cow Goddess”)

Cain = On (Anu of Mesopotamia)

Abel = Shu (Enlil of Mesopotamia)

Enoch = Ptah/Khnum (Ea/Enki of Mesopotamia)

Irad = Re (Shamash of Mesopotamia)

Mehujael = Osiris (Dumuzi of Mesopotamia)

Mehushael = Horus the Elder (Adad/Hadad of Mesopotamia)

Lamech = Thoth (Nabu of Mesopotamia)

Naamah = Isis (Astarte/Asherah of Mesopotamia)

Tubal-Cain = Seth (Baal)

Jabal = Horus the Younger

Jubal = Horus-Aha/Bes?

Stolen Fruit is the Sweetest

Happy Valentine’s Day!

In a sense, the honeymoon of Adam (Sol) and Eve (Jupiter) was over before it even began. Our early solar system was an open marriage with a family of swingers living right next door. The neighboring couples did not resist gravitational temptation, and the rest is now Cosmology. A number of things had to go very wrong in just the right way to produce the place we now call home. Perhaps only in retrospect was it all too predictable. Consistent with the apparent paradox, the contradictions of our dubious destiny color the entire Genesis narrative.

After the “fall,” it is prophesied that Adam’s labor would be increased. To wit, our sun’s family grew from a "wife" (Jupiter) and "son" (Neptune) to a collection of nine planets and assorted dwarf planets. All four gas giants ended up in the outer solar system rather than becoming like the “hot Jupiters” we see in many other star systems. This all contributed to a bigger gravitational loading on our solar system.

A close parallel is found in the related story of Jacob and his older (binary star) twin Esau. By virtue of Jacob “the Grabber” prevailing in his struggle with Esau, Jacob acquired a pronounced “limp,” which would weaken him for the duration of his trouble-filled and shortened life. After the hip dislocation, Jacob became paranoid about drawing too much attention from potential enemies. In astrophysical terms, a sun that exhibits a “limp” or “wobble” is a sure sign that it has one or more planets of interest orbiting around it.

Every Red Dwarf has at least one planet (ours used to!):

Eve was to be cursed with painful child births. Neptune, the first planet after Jupiter, had been more-or-less a “natural birth.” However, all further additions to the solar family came with serious complications.

There was also to be enmity between the Serpent and the Woman. It is written:

“He [the Serpent] shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.” Gen 3:15 (RSV)

Yet, the opposite would be expected. The Woman should be striking from above and the Serpent from below. The explanation is that this is a celestial battle and not a terrestrial one!

The rival “father” suns do not battle directly, but through their intermediary planets, that is, through their respective “wives” and “children.” It was actually Neptune (Cain) that “met” Saturn (Abel) in the interplanetary “field” and clipped it from behind/below. Similarly, Jacob had grabbed the “heel” of Esau when they were emerging from their cosmic womb. This brotherly bump pushed Saturn away from its parent sun (Serpent/Esau) and around the rival sun (Adam/Jacob). Consequently, Saturn died to its original solar home and was reborn in another. Although Abel was born into Adam’s family after Cain, he was geologically the older of the two. Abel was implicitly the “forbidden fruit” that Eve accepted from the Serpent and shared with her domestic partner Adam.

The Hebrew wording of the Cain and Abel passage strongly suggests that Cain (“The Pain,” i.e., pesky Neptune) was being coaxed into tripping up lofty Abel (“The Vain,” i.e., beautiful Saturn). The Hebrew language is also quite similar to the terminology of modern astrophysics. Cain is told that “sin” (literally, missing the target) is “crouching” (literally, reclining) at the door (literally, an opening). “God” does not want Cain (Neptune) to lazily avoid conflict, but to “do what is right.” He is to pass through the celestial “keyhole” that will not only guarantee future collision with Abel (Saturn), but also result in the capture of Saturn. Close is not good enough in the endeavor of solar system construction. Mastery of this branch of physics is of course a fundamental aspect of orbital mechanics and space travel in general.

Neil deGrasse Tyson and Keyholes ( Too Funny!

Nothing would have remained in the original orbit of Saturn other than some impact debris (“blood”). For all practical purposes, Saturn was dead to the Serpent Sun. Cain was therefore infamously successful in his mission. Cain had effectively taken one for the team, and suffered dearly for it. This falls into the category of, “no good deed goes unpunished.” Saturn was brought on board, but Neptune forfeited the central position of “firstborn.” Cain justifiably protests his penalty of aimless wandering in the land of Nod (“forgetfulness”), i.e., ejection to an extreme orbit that was both out of sight and out of mind.

The smaller Neptune was Saturn's taker, but could not become its “keeper.” Instead, Saturn entered a resonance relationship with the much bigger planet Jupiter. Neptune ala Cain received little consolation for its loss. Today, Neptune enjoys only the limited protection of a celestial “mark” (resonant orbit) with the Plutoids.

The planet of the Woman (Jupiter/Leah) had just bruised the heel of the Serpent’s planet (Saturn). Next, it would be the turn of the Serpent’s planet (Marduk) to bruise the head of the Woman’s planetary “gun for hire” (Kingu/Uranus). In other words, the Serpent would strike from the front or "above."

When Drunken Planets Attack

Another major source of ancient cosmology (and the Biblical accounts) is the Epic of Gilgamesh. It is telling the same basic story as the Enuma Elish and the Myth of Zu, however the planetary protagonists are not nearly as polarized, i.e., one is not a pure hero and the other a pure villain. They both have strengths and weaknesses. They both contributed to the cosmic reality we know today and are given their due.

The main character Gilgamesh is yet another expression of Marduk, the rogue/retrograde planet from the twin sun’s posse. Like Marduk, Gilgamesh has a split personality. He is two-thirds god and one-third human. From the Myth of Zu, we learn that Marduk originally consisted of (and later separated into) three major planets, Mercury (Ninurta), Mars (Adad) and Sedna (Shara/Ningirsu). Sedna is a trans-Neptune “dwarf planet” and evidently did not qualify as a fully fledged planetary god in ancient times either (see footnote at the bottom).

Like Reuben (the Biblical analog of Mercury), Gilgamesh is highly intemperate and must be disgraced in order to instill some modesty. The proposed solution is for the goddess Aruru to create a match for him, a twin of Anu (Neptune) who is to be called Enkidu. The “twin” of Neptune is of course the planet Uranus. These planets are considered even more similar to each other than Venus is to Earth.

Enkidu is later taken under the wing by another goddess, Ninsun, who states: “Powerful Enkidu, not of my womb’s birthing, I hereby adopt you along with those that (now) favor Gilgamesh.”

The name Ninsun means “Lady Fatted Cow,” which associates her with Biblical Leah, who is also likened to a big cow with “beautiful eyes.” Both can be associated with our largest planet Jupiter, whose fetching eyes are engendered by massive swirling winds in its atmosphere. The implication is that neither Gilgamesh nor Enkidu were originally members of Jupiter’s system, but instead formed in the system of the rival twin sun. In the Epic of Gilgamesh, Enkidu laments having passed through a gate (or "door in the woods") that damaged his hand (Cf the broken wing of Zu). This is apparently when the trouble first began for him, and seems to reflect the difficult passing of Uranus through a “keyhole” (in terms of celestial mechanics) that then set the stage for an even more devastating impact with Marduk/Gilgamesh.

Here's Looking At You Leah

The first gas giant (“Great Goddess”) of the other sun, namely Saturn, had “created” a second gas giant planet Uranus, even as Jupiter “created” Neptune. This arrangement is mirrored in Genesis where Leah (Jupiter) brings her maid Zilpah (Neptune) to Jacob and Rachel (Saturn) brings her own lady-in-waiting Bilhah (Uranus) to the big dance. Both Saturn and Uranus ultimately were captured by our sun, which left only “Marduk” orbiting around the other sun (in retrograde motion with respect to our sun). Uranus was then figuratively called upon to deal with unruly Gilgamesh.

Prior to the show-down with Gilgamesh, Enkidu had to first become adapted to his new environment. Instead of “mating” with the wild animals (crashing into stray interplanetary debris) as before, long-haired Enkidu was to be provided with a temple prostitute. This is an echo of Tiamat “playing the harlot” with Kingu in the Enuma Elish. The chosen woman made love to Enkidu over and over, force-fed him with ambrosia and wine, and even dressed him up in feminine royal finery. In other words, Uranus attracted a new surface and atmosphere from the residual gas and dust of its adopted solar system, which then trailed behind like the flowing robe of a king. Consequently, Enkidu slackened his pace and assumed the bearing of a god. He was now ready to be taken by his mistress to challenge Gilgamesh (Mercury/Reuben) along with the “lion” (Adad/Judah) and the “wolf” (Sedna/Benjamin). The game was on!

Planets that Orbit Planets:

Are super-Earths actually mini-Neptunes?:

Simulation of Two Planets Colliding:

See video

Note: The "countenance" of the planets becomes "angry" upon close approach (as in the tale of Cain and Abel).

Enkidu is said to have “blocked” the passage of Gilgamesh, indicating that the migration of Uranus initiated the impact. The two locked horns like "bulls" in a shattering crash. The “knee” of Gilgamesh buckled first and he was turned all the way back. However, rather than remaining enemies, the two “kissed” and became fast friends. The main body of the much larger planet Uranus continued in its prograde motion and seems to have followed after one of the three reeling parts of Marduk, the part that would ultimately become the planet Mercury.

With the blessing of the elders the two grapplers form an alliance to slay the monster Huwawa/Humbaba and vanquish “evil” (binary-star retrograde planetary motion) that is "hated by Shamash" (our “Jacob” sun). After the defeat of Gilgamesh, Enkidu is called the King (“Kingu”). The king is dead, long live the king! The people hope for the return of their new king from his crusade, but he is clearly unwell and must carry his own “body” across the familiar spaces from whence he had earlier come. Gilgamesh is also fatalistic about the new venture. He prays to his new sun-god Shamash (rather than his old father Lugalbanda), and offers to carry back “cool water” to him (from the outer solar system).

Note: A number of trans-Neptune objects (about a dozen in number) have now been discovered that orbit at a slight tilt with respect to the plane of the solar system. Mythologically, these planetoids associate with the so-called “Followers of Horus.” This offset appears to be related to the exact nature/angle of the collision between Uranus and “Marduk.” These trans-Neptune planetoids have very long but pro-grade orbits around the sun. The latest Extreme Trans-Neptune Object (ETNO), dubbed 2012 VP113 or "Biden" for the moment, was announced in 2014. In contrast, a large percentage of comets, such as Halley’s Comet, have retro-grade orbits, which may be a vestige of our original binary star system.

Chemtrail Source Material - Coal Ash

"For the last two decades the source material for chemtrails has been a mystery. Finally, the apparent ‘perfect’ element base material of chemtrails sprayed from airplanes—both government and commercial—that causes blanket clouds and welsbach reflective materials in the atmosphere, has been identified. It’s coal fly ash wastes from coal burning power plants!"

Note: Commercial jets do not spray chemtrails. KC type military tankers usually in all white livery do the spraying.

Jupiter Ascending

Like the lead character in the movie Jupiter Ascending, our planet Jupiter had multiple “instantiations.” Jupiter lost the honored position of inner-most gas-giant planet orbiting around our nascent sun, but gained it back again after the tumultuous collisions associated with the cannibalization of our twin sun’s planets.

In the Enuma Elish, our twin sun is called Lahmu (“hairy, muddy” ala Esau) and its gas giant companion is called Lahamu. It formed first, but according to the Egyptian version of the Creation Story, this sun was “sickly” and was replaced by a “Glorious Eye.” This second star is called Anshar (“sky axle” ala the larger and smoother Jacob) in the Enuma Elish, and its gas giant companion is called Kishar. Despite its size and seniority, Kishar (Jupiter) was eventually eclipsed in status by the coming of Anu (Neptune).

In the Enuma Elish, Kingu (Uranus) appears almost out of nowhere to replace Anu in the “firstborn” position, i.e., innermost orbit of the extant planets. He also scandalously receives the sole favor of Tiamat. The Enuma Elish portrays indignation that Tiamat should be joined to this interloper, and exults in the calling of Marduk to challenge him. It was one thing for Anu to have earlier "usurped the throne" of his father Kishar, but the coming and anointing of Kingu (by adoption of Tiamat) was something quite different.

The ultimate downfall of first Anu (Neptune) and then Kingu (Uranus) allowed Kishar (Jupiter) to reclaim the status of “firstborn” (nearest to the sun) under a new name, Nudimmud (Ea), who is strangely called “the begetter of his fathers.” In other words, he had preceded both Anu and Kingu. Nudimmud was the new identity of Kishar re-born! Although this makes little sense as a human genealogy, it is coherent in terms of cosmology.

The Enuma Elish (On-Line Translation):

In Egyptian myth, the god Osiris was killed after returning to the West from his conquest of the East (as Uranus had moved in its own journey of ascendency within the binary star system). Osiris was still a comparatively young god, and only in his 29th regnal year when he was tragically assaulted. There are two versions of the event. In one, Osiris suffered numerous blows in an open field and his was body divided into 12 parts. In the other, he is tricked at a banquet into lying down in a coffin, which was then sealed and set adrift on the sea. This latter tale reflects the final prone state of the surviving “torso” of Uranus as it drifted toward an outer (less prestigious) orbit in the solar system.

The Enuma Elish blames the lucky mishap on Uranus (that is, on the Osiris planet Kingu) and its controversial “marriage” to the goddess (Tiamat). However, alternate formulations of the cosmology make Marduk/Apophis the villain and Osiris a blameless king that nobly sacrificed himself for the “salvation” of the Earth and earthlings. It was the body of Uranus that was broken for us, in that a portion of that planet was said to have formed the new planet Earth. Uranus enjoyed a partial/symbolic resurrection when Neptune was struck by the wounded Marduk and was therefore bumped into an even wider orbit. Eventually, Uranus was able to take up an orbit inside that of Neptune.

In the related Myth of Zu, the crafty Zu (Kingu/Uranus) steals the crown of Enlil (Saturn/Lahamu/Mummu) while he was bathing. This echoes the loss of Saturn’s status as the “firstborn” gas-giant in the older of the two twin solar systems. In fact, Saturn was quite possibly the first planet in the combined system. The subjugation of Saturn to Jupiter and the usurpation of the “firstborn” status by Uranus (from both Saturn and Jupiter) would have represented a major “coup” within the early solar system and in the annals of cosmology. In the Zu version of the myth, it appears that Uranus (Zu/Kingu) had performed a "Saturn-jumping" prior to performing a "Jupiter-jumping." And the chaotic nature of the Saturn-jumping may have become a catalyst for the events that followed.

With the eventual "defeat" of Kingu (Uranus) and dismemberment of Marduk, Jupiter regained the central and controlling "Nibiru" position in the solar system (near the fateful place of the “crossing,” i.e. spot of our solar system’s defining collision). However, the title of firstborn was fleeting. After the massive impact between Uranus and Marduk, rocky inner planets were born. By virtue of landing closest to the sun, the new planet Mercury (a remnant of Marduk) assumed the honorary title of “firstborn” among the sons of the Sun.

Scientists are perplexed that volatile compounds such as sulfur and potassium can still be detected on the surface of Mars. These should not have survived the disaster that stripped the planet's mantle almost down to its iron core. However, the collision in question did not occur close to the sun, but in the vicinity of the Asteroid Belt. What’s more, we are informed by the ancient accounts that the fiery post-impact Marduk careened first toward the outer solar system (even “alongside” Uranus) where it then “avenged” Saturn (his own feeding-brother from the twin solar system) by striking its “murderer,” Neptune. There was evidently time for the vapors to flash-freeze as a completely spent Marduk/Apophis was propelled back again and became the planet Mercury - a suffering serpent wound tightly around the turning pole of the sun, and all for the benefit of the Earth and mankind.

The Enuma Elish concludes by stating:

“Let them [the honorary titles of Marduk] become memorials and let the first human being recite them.”

Heading West of Eden

Our sun almost certainly originated within an open star cluster called Messier 67 (M67). Curiously enough, M67 is located to the East of our present location in the constellation of Cancer. More specifically, it is on the foot of Cancer that crushes the head of the adjacent constellation Hydra the serpent.

Image: “A Serpent (Hydra) Under the Foot (M67) of Cancer”
Credit/Source: Bruce L. Gary,

The stars of M67 are closest in age to our sun than any other group in the galaxy, and also uniquely similar in spectral characteristics. 88 stars in the M67 cluster have been studied in some detail over a period of many years. One is even billed as a near duplicate of our own sun in terms of age, mass and chemical composition. It also has a planet.

Based on the most recent estimates, our sun may have been among the first stars of its generation to be birthed in the M67 cluster. It would also have been one of the first to leave. The Earth is now 2,500 light-years distant from the “Garden of Eden” in M67. It was clearly expelled with considerable force. And, of course, there is no turning back! To have remained in the cluster would have just as certainly led to violent and repeated destruction. There is evidence that a nearby supernova explosion occurred within the first million years of our solar system’s existence, and within a distance of only about two light-years away. This explosion injected radioactive material into our emerging planetary system, which has now been detected through isotope analysis of the oldest meteorites that have fallen to Earth.

The Allende Meteorite:

Stars greater than about 1.4 times the mass of our sun “go supernova” and their collapsing cores turn into neutron stars which can produce pulsars that emit focused beams of radioactive material like “flaming swords that flash back and forth.” The Genesis narrative indicates that at least one neutron star (or even a black hole) was responsible for creating a hostile local neighborhood for our early solar system. Red giant stars (“cherubim”) would also have jeopardized the satety of our young solar system by threatening to go supernova or with their cosmic ”ram butting” (a connotation of the Hebrew word cherub).

The explanation for our eviction given in Genesis is that Eve partook of forbidden fruit (knowledge of “good and evil”) and gave it to Adam. In cosmological terms, the gas-giant planet (Jupiter) of Adam’s solar system captured a planet (Saturn) from the opposite (“serpent”) solar system and presented it as a gift to Adam. Our solar system was a binary (“dual”) solar system, however it was not one that remained that way, but merged somewhat catastrophically into a monolithic solar system. One system cannibalized the other, and was actually “tempted” to do so.

It is the “serpent” who is said to have accosted Eve. Within a crowded nebula of expanding red giant planets, exploding supernovae, and concommitant white dwarfs, the young suns were driven into closer contact with one another and this inevitably led to “enmity.” It wasn’t the serpent’s fault, per se, but he took the fall, so to speak. Consistent with this, the serpent is depicted, not as guarding his fruit, but actually trying to give it away. In time, the same bullies that pushed the twin suns together also forced them apart and sent our solar system hurtling into the unknown.

Killing Apophis

In late 2014, we had our first glimpse of an embryonic multiple-star solar system, GG Tauri.

The development of GG Tauri is uncannily similar to the picture drawn from the ancient Egyptian Creation Myth. In that account, the primordial god Atum arose alone in the shape of a mound within the watery Nun, that is, as the “central clump” of an “interstellar nebula” consisting of the exploded remains of previous generation stars. Atum develops an “eye” (proto-sun) and spits out the first gods Shu (“gas”) and Tefnut (“moisture”) from his “body” in a act of cosmic masturbation. It has been theorized that proto-stars convulse and eject matter, however it has not been suspected that this might lead to an initial gas-giant planet, such as our planet Saturn.

Atum’s first “eye” was however sickly and drifted away. Atum therefore developed a “sound and beneficial” eye (our large, bright, main-sequence sun). Yet, when the original eye returned it was “angry” and had to be pacified (as the “sun” Jacob placated his wrathful “older twin” Esau).

“It [the first sun] was angry with me [Atum], after it returned and found that I had made another in its place, having replaced it with the Glorious Eye, which I had made. Then I advanced its place on my head, and after it had ruled this entire land, its rage fell away to its roots, for I had replaced what had been taken away from [or with] it.” - James Pritchard, Ancient Near Eastern Texts, p 6.

Atum’s wrathful eye was (or became) a type of red dwarf sun, which are known for their volatility, but also their relatively short life-spans as active suns. Despite being placated (becoming a “failed star”), the peace did not last. The twin sun was eventually declared an “evil enemy” (nemesis) and given the name of Apophis the Serpent. As with the serpent in the Genesis account, it is said of Apophis, “I have commanded that a curse be cast upon him.” The narration of Apophis and his demise is recorded at great length and in gory detail. It was not accomplished by Atum directly, but by the “sending out” of those beings (planets) that Atum had made. It involved a series of planetary collisions in which Apophis is hacked as with a knife, his heart ripped out, and he is consigned to the flames. In the end he can no longer even see and his name is no more in the land. “His bones are not, and his skin is not. He is fallen and overthrown.” James Pritchard, Ancient Near Eastern Texts, p 7.

There are two sides to every story. Although Egypt worshipped Atum-Re and vilified Apophis, just the opposite was the case in the north. In Babylon, the alter-ego of Apophis, Marduk-Bel, was held Supreme. Instead of being an evil force that had to be vanquished, he was hailed as the tragic hero whose sacrificial efforts had brought about the creation of the Earth and human beings.

GG Tauri is a triple-star that shows signs of having started out as a single-star or binary-star system that divided (“fragmented”) due to a combination of size/mass and rate of rotation. The suns are tightly spaced and are presently spinning rapidly within a womb-like outer disk that re-supplies each with the raw materials it needs to continue growing and to conceivably also produce planets. The feeding bands have taken a decidedly serpentine form.

Planet X is a Dead Head

Planetary scientists generally agree that Uranus sustained a massive impact during our solar system's formation, which resulted in its extreme (98 degree) tilt of rotation. This is over three times as extreme as any other planet in our solar system. About three years ago, a team of scientists led by Alessandro Morbidelli (at the Cote d'Azur Observatory in Nice, France), announced their conclusion that Uranus had even sustained multiple collisions.

More recently, it has been learned that at least half of star systems in the galaxy are binary/multiple, and within 81 light-years of Earth two-thirds are of that persuasion. This estimate does not include solar systems that were originally binary but separated into single star systems. Our own solar system is evidently in this category! So, the percentages of binary/multiple star systems are likely quite larger than the current conservative estimate.

With that in mind, it is time to reconsider how rocky planets (such as Earth) came about within binary systems. Saturn, called "Mummu" in the Enuma Elish, was the gas giant of our twin's sun. It was "fettered" as by a "nose-rope" from the gravitational action of the larger Jupiter ("Ea") after a "brotherly bounce" by Neptune ("Anu"). Similarly, our planet Uranus was not struck by a rogue planet from outer space, such as Zecharia Sitchin concluded, but by a planet from our own binary star companion. In the Enuma Elish, that planet is called Marduk.

In the Legend of Zu, the planet Marduk is a more complex "god-head" of planets (consisting of Ninurta, Adad and Shara), which resulted in a more complex collision with Uranus ("Zu"). Neither Uranus or Marduk "died" or disappeared/exploded. Instead, these proto-planets were transformed into the inner rocky planets and outer gas planets we know today. Ninurta became Mercury, Adad became Mars, and Shara became Sedna. Uranus lost its inner orbit and around two Earth masses of water and other matter, which became the planets Earth and Venus.

In a binary model, there is no need for a "Planet X" or other unaccounted large mass to explain solar system anomalies. Our sun's twin could have been outright ejected and even captured by a third star system, perhaps the same star system ("Laban") that forced the planets of our original binary system ("Jacob and Esau") to overlap and come into conflict with each other.

No matter how the myths and Biblical accounts "sliced and diced" it, the head-on collision between Uranus and "Marduk" (R.I.P.) was the defining moment in our solar system's formation. It transformed a binary star system with two sets of inert planets into a single solar system with at least one planet (Earth) that was capable of nurturing life. We can't presently say exactly how precise the mythological models were. However, it is safe to assume that the model could NOT have been simply dreamed up by primitive earthlings. It has a distinctly extra-terrestrial spin to it! And it was certainly based on a cursory analysis (at a minimum) of our star system from the vantage point of space.

(If you don't have the resources to travel to distant stars, wait for habitable planets to come to you!)
