The truth about the story of beginnings

By studying the religious texts, it becomes very clear that these stories are not about God, but about “the powerfull ones” in the Bible, and the “Sky people (the Anunnaki) in the Sumerian tablets.

In 1896, eminent scholar Nathaniel Schmidt was fired from his position as professor of Semitic languages at Colgate University. For 11 years he was involved in translating Semitic languages. He taught various courses on Hebrew, Aramaic, Coptic, Arabic, Syriac and other ancient languages. He was one of the leading scholars in the field. So why was he fired? The authorities considered that his recent theological papers had struck at the very roots of two world religions, Christianity and Judaism.

What he did “wrong” was read the Sumerian, Babylonian and Assyrian scriptures, and noticed that they were full of fascinating parallels. Stories written there bore indispensable resemblances to stories about the beginnings of the Bible. Stories such as those of “Adam and Eve”, “The fall”, “Cain and Abel”, “The flood”, “The limiting of human life”, “The Tower of Babel”, “The garden of Eden” … , and his work showed that the Sumerian accounts, and the ones that followed, from nearly 6,000 years ago, were in all probability the source of all those familiar biblical stories. And that was a problem in 1890, because if you think about it, The church was still recovering from the after-effects of Charles Darwin, on the Origin of species.

 So the idea that the Bible was based on someone else’s stories was a bit of a shame. But it didn’t have to be, because Judaism and Christianity both find their roots in the story of a Sumerian family, The family of Abraham and Sarah. Abraham and Sarah grew up and spent the best part of their lives in ur of the chaldees, a Sumerian culture. 

And so when they emigrated from there, it’s hardly surprising that they would carry with them all the stories of beginnings that they had grown up with. And so in the foundations of what was to become their culture, their religion and their Bible. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that in the bible, we have a summary version, of all those stories from the Sumerian, Babylonian and Assyrian texts. 

The shocking thing about it is that the Sumerian versions of these stories make no mention of God at all. In the Sumerian originals, these are stories of our ancestors contact with another species. A species called the Anunnaki.

Could judaism and christianity’s familiar stories of God be a retelling of our ancestors close encounters with extraterrestrials? The cuneiform tablets which had fascinated Nathaniel Schmidt, were first unearthted in the 1500’s, as colonian powers began to excavate the ancient sites of mesopotamia. Over the decades that followed, some 200,000 clay tablets were uncovered. The tablets were adorned with strange edgings or glyphs. some believed it to be an unknown language, but others refused to believe it, since the tablets appeared to predate any known language. And so the tablets were archieved, locked away for three centuries, untill in 1835, when Henry Rawlinson arrived in Iran.

Rawlinson was a military man. He was employed by the East India tea company, and he was in Iran helping the Shah of Iran to train his troops. Rawlinson’s presence in iran wasn’t part of a quid pro quo for trading rights, he was there for access to the district of Behistun. He wanted to find the Behistun inscription.

the behistun inscription was an ancient royal proclamation, carved into a cliff face. It was written in three known languages. Persian, Elamite and Arcadian, which was the common language of the mesopotamian cultures. The inscription expressed all three languages in Cuneiform script. It was the translation key that Cuneiform tablets had been waiting for. The memories of Mesopotamias ancient cultures were suddenly an open book. The glyphs were not mere decoration, after all, they were banking records, business agreements, shopping lists, contracts, recipes, inventories, royal histories and the most ancient narrative in the history of the world. It was in these ancient narratives that the source of the Bible’s familiar stories began to emerge.

At an academic level, Nathaniel schmidt was in good company. He was one of a small number who began confronting us with this new layer of our history. And to reassure you, that shortly after Colgate University fired him, he did get a new job with Cornell University, and he was professor for Semitic languages there for a full 36 years. He’s work continued to argue that the Cuneiforms reveal, that our earliest histories are not about God. They are about our prehistoric contact with the Anunnaki.

In the 20th century, The writer Zecharia Sitchin began studying the Cuneiform texts. He highlighted the clear implications of the Sumerian stories, that the Anunnaki were powerful and advanced extraterrestial species. Their arrival on planet Earth put them at the top of the terrestial food chain. To create a local workforce, the Anunnaki used sequences of their own genetic code to hybridize a primate ancestor into a human. Ready to put to work for their Anunnaki masters. Such an argued, the word Anunnaki means “those who came from the heavens to Earth”, A phrase that made clear their extraterrestial origin.

Zecharia Sitchin was not an academic, he had not a Phd and he wasn’t a professor. He had a degree from the London school of economics and was an editor and journalist in Mandatory Palestine (which in 1948 became the modern state of Israel), before moving to New York in 1952.  While working as an executive for a shipping company, he taught himself Sumerian cuneiform and visited several archaeological sites.

He wrote at a popular level, That’s to say for a general audience, and not with the kind of referencing and footnotes that you’d expect to see in an academic kind of tone. And academic critics don’t like that. They think that’s slack. Some might identify mistakes or bias in he’s work, and that’s then their pretext to disregard his contribution, which is an important one.

Some writers in the field rejects Sitchin’s translation of the word Anunnaki, and they would content that the word usage tells us that it simply means nobility or royalty, the rulers. But who were the rulers ? Why is that word associtated with “the rulers”?

If you look at the etymology of the word at it’s root meanings, look at the component parts, you have “Annu”, which means heavens, “ki”, wich means earth. “Annu-na-Ki”, are “those who came from the heavens to earth”. You can follow the logic. But even if you don’t have that narrative embedded in the word itself, as soon as you read the Cuneiforms, the stories themselfs unpack that that is exactly what was going on. And the glyph that they used to indicate the rulers that come down from the heavens, that glyph simply indicates the sky. So these Annunaki are from the heavens, they are sky-people.

Many of the world’s oldest mythologies claim that governance over a humane society began with dominance over human beings being established by superior beings or Gods. And that the job of rulership is handed over at a later stage to human governors or kings. 
Egyptian mythology holds such an narrative. Similarly the Bible speaks of king Saul as the first human king over the people of God. The Sumerian cuneiform s also named their first human king Gilgamesh, to be more accurate, Gilgamesh is a transition king, a hybrid of human and Annunaki. He’s name appears on one of the most famous of Mesopotamian artifacts. The Sumerian Kings list. Among the shopping lists, legal agreements, business contracts and all the rest of the Cuneifrom tablets, their appears one, on first inspection, is a dry record of a succesion of kings of Sumeria. The most recent entries records rains of 6 to 36 years.

As we go further back on the timeline, the kings list starts running with some odd looking information. Because out of the blue, we suddenly read of a dynasty that lasted 24.510 years, 3 months and 3,5 days. That precision absolutely befits Sumerian culture. Because it’s from Sumerian culture that we get 360° in a circle, 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour ..

So the precision doesn’t surprise us. What is odd is that that dynasty of 24.510 years, 3 months and 3,5 days was devided across no more than 23 kings. That’s an average reign of more than a thousand years each. And it’s not a one-off. The dynasty concluded by the great flood lasted 241.000 years, shared by no more than eight kings, that’s an average reign of more than 30.000 years each.

Some have tried to make the dates symbolic or have interpreted their unit of time differently, but that doesn’t quite work when its an unbroken record of 6 to 36 year reigns , to 36.000 year reings, all in the same unit of time, all in the same narrative. The narrative begins with non-human kings, who then hand over to human kings, and this elasticity of the lenght of their dynasties, is another suggestion that the non-human kings are something quite different to human beings. It’s like comparing the lifespan of a human being with the lifespan of an ant.

The kings list is not the only evidence pointing to an extraterrestrial hypothesis. The Sumerian version of the Tower of Babel speaks of 50 technicians, who employ mysterious technology to dispatch 300 observers to their stations and the stars. read alongside the Genesis account, the two narratives confirm one and another, and paint a bivid picture. Babel was a stargate, providing the observers rapid acces to space stations.

The thing that takes you into this whole field of research, is an anomalous word in the book of Genesis. Genesis uses two words for God, One is Elohim, and the other is Yahweh or Jehova. Yahweh is the Holy name given to Mozes in a time or millennia after all the action described in the stories of beginnings.

So the fact that the word Yahweh appears in those much older stories, that clues us that we’re not reading the original version of the stories. The stories are being retold by someone after the time of Mozes. There is a broad consensus among biblical scholars that the current version of the Old Testament, the Hebrew scriptures, was edited or redacted sometime in the sixth century BCE, and that the redacter, by putting the name Yahweh into these older stories, the stories that Abraham and Sarah had brought with them, was telling the reader to regard them as God’s stories.

By using the later name, he’s also telling the reader that this is not the original version. Originally, they were Elohim stories. That word “Elohim” is a very interesting word because it’s a plural form word, it often exhibits plural behaviors. Let US make. let US make the humans to look like one of US. We don’t want them to become too much like one of US.

The word “Elohim” often takes plural verb forms, is sometimes translated as God, but in other places it gets translated as false Gods or demons or angels or chieftains or land barons. So why this enormous elasticity in the word’s meaning? We have to go back to the roots of the word and ask our self, why is it used that way, and why does it behave like a plural. 

When you look at it’s component parts, the word “Elohim” means the powers, or the powerful ones. When you read Genesis translating the word that way, The text changes and suddenly line up with the Sumerian texts. One by one, they confirm each other’s stories, and it’s very clear they’re not stories about Gods, they’re stories about the “powerful ones” in the Bible, and the Sky people, the “Annunaki”, in the Sumerian tablets.

Is there any material evidence that a non-human ruling presence ever occupied planet Earth? One might reasonably ask “why have no physical remains of Anunnaki been found?”

The more we dig up ancient sites, the greater a diversity of ancient peoples we’re finding. If you think about the hobbits that were found in Indonesia, the Homo floresiensis, or the Giants of Noble County, or the red-haired Giants of North America, or the long skulls of Paracas, etc. There’s a great range of people that we’re beginning to come across as we dig into our ancient past. So how would we know if we found an Anunnaki?

Well, one obvious possibility is by DNA testing. If Gilgamesh really was a human Anunnaki hybrid, then all we have to do is find the royal tomb and DNA test him. And that is exactly what happend in Iraq, in 2003.

A team went in, protected by American troops at the beginning of the 2003 Iraq invasion, and found Gilgamesh’s tomb. Jörg Faßbinder  spoke to the BBC about that, you can check on the website and read all about it. The official story is that having located the probable tomb site, 16 years ago, they decided not to investigate any further. Similarly in 1927, the British archaeologist Leonard Woolley, discovered a person known as Queen puabi. She was a high-ranking Sumerian leader, who lived around 2500 BCE, and they had found her remains. So again, here’s another fine, which with todays technology, provides us with the opportunity to DNA test.

We can now test Sumerian royalties to confirm whether it was an entirely human. The result? Apparently they decided not to investigate any further, or at least that is what they told us, Now what do you make of that? Wouldn’t you want to know? 

A German-led expedition has discovered what is thought to be the entire city of Uruk – including, where the Euphrates once flowed, the last resting place of its famous King. But in 2003, US forces confiscated the tomb.
Why would an extraterrestrial species be interested in governing a human population on planet Earth? Why would advanced beings from another planet have any interest in interfering with human evolution and managing a human population? Why would they teach prehistoric humans about mathematics, reading, legal and banking systems, contracts of employment, money and pricing mechanisms ? And why would they then withdraw ?

Our own behavior as a species on our own planet, might give us an insight on what such colonisation might look like. When we colonize, we go in with force, we show our superiority and we take over. We provide the police, we provide the army, the education, we put the locals to work, we cream off the profits, the natural resources, and basically enjoy all the benefits of sitting at the top of the economic tree with a powerful visible presence to keep control.

But after a while, you can get the locals to do their own policing and their own school teaching. let the locals become the lawyers and the bankers, and let a local to be the governor. As long as you have some control of the value of the money, and as long as you set all the commodity prices and exchange rates, you don’t really need to maintain a visible presence anymore. So you can go home, or live in another country, but still enjoy all of the benefits of sitting at the top of the economic tree. now that’s how “we” do it. It’s how we’ve done it from the Roman empire to the Spanish, to the Dutch, to the Portuguese, the British, The American.. that’s how we do it.

SO, is it possible that an ET presence may have colonized the world in our prehistoric past, in a way that is analogous to that? That another species came and resided on planet Earth for a while? They sat at the top of the economic tree and enjoyed all the benefits of it? And then withdraw in exactly the kind of way like we would do ? One can wonder how much like the Anunnaki we are.

And as for what they were looking for.. it could have been minerals.. Because there is strong evidence of prehistoric mines in Southern Africa. But it could have been something else, something to do with the properties of planet Earth. And it might have been something to do with ourselves, our uniqueness as homo sapiens.

“The thousands of ancient gold mines discovered over the past 500 years, points to a vanished civilization that lived and dug for gold in this part of the world for thousands of years,” says Tellinger. “And if this is in fact the cradle of humankind, we may be looking at the activities of the oldest civilization on Earth.”
Were our ancestors really engineered as workers toiling for the colonizers? Were the Anunnaki only interested in our planet’s resources? And coldly indifferent to the progress of the human race? Other ancestral narratives speak of our human origins in exactly the same terms, and yet there are other strands to the story. The Greek Babylonian narrative of the Apkallu speak of the “visitors” helping and educating our human ancestors. Native American memory reports into dimensional and extraterrestrial visitors nurturing the beginnings of human society. Zulu mythology speaks of our ancestors being nurtured by advanced beings. Might the Anunnaki have had a more generous motivation towards their human workforce.

The book “escaping from Eden” by Paul Wallis argues that our ancient texts recall a range of species that bumped up against our ancestors. And the stories in our world mythology’s tell of conflicting ideas among the visitors as to how conscious and how intelligent they wanted humans to be. And certainly there are some cold agendas towards humanity, that play out in our world’s stories of beginnings. The limiting of human life, a flood to kill them all, a neurological interference to take the power of speech from us and dumb us down, a bombing that destroys our engeneering and technology, a neurological interference to lower our perceptual and cognitive abilities.

Now, in the Sumerian version of these stories, it’s the senior Anunnaki Enlil who actions and pushes all these negative agendas, that are somewhat hostile to human beings. But there is another agenda in the Anunnaki community. There is a figure called Enki, who appears to be the leader of the Earth project and he is junior to Enlil. He’s described as Enlil’s brother. So in the Sumerian story, humanity gets caught in the crossfire of these mysterious beings in conflict. A number of our so-called creation myths begin with a rehabilitation of a devastated and flooded planet shrouded in darkness.

And that arrival is a positive interaction with this other species, because they begin to nurture life on the planet. They nurture animal life, they nurture human life. And later in the Sumerian account, it’s Enki, the one who is in charge of the Earth project, who wants to upgrade human beings for a more enjoyable, a better, a more conscious kind of life. And there’s a conflict, between Enlil and Enki over whether that should happen. And Enlil, the CEO, does not want that, and so Enki breaks ranks to achieve that upgrade for us.

When Enlil wants to destroy the human experiment by devastating the planet, again it’s Enki, who seeks out a favored family, the family Atra-Hasis (Zeus, Noah), and gives him instructions as to construct an escape pod for his family and farm, so they can reboot the project.

So we can say that the Anunnaki presence is a mixed bag for humanity. we were really caught in the crossfire of this conflict among a species who are ambivalent about the progress of human society. There is oppression and slavery in the Anunnaki narrative, but there’s also a concern for human welfare and a nurturing of human beings. So it’s a mixed story.

Today’s reports of ET contact reflect a similar range of agendas. Some harmful, some indifferent and some nurturing. Are these contemporary experiences connected with the Anunnaki narratives? Or are people today experiencing something or someone different? What difference does the Anunnak narrative make to human beings today? If you and I are a part primate and a part Anunnaki .. how does that help us? And are the Anunnaki still present? or are we now our own masters? Does the Anunnaki narrative give us an explanation of our original separation from all other animal forms on planet Earth, but leave us with no word about our future.

Our ancestral narratives all speak of higher consciousness being downgraded in our prehistoric past, and that raises the possibility that our cognitive abilities can be upgraded and our consciousness can be heightened. Our mythologies speak of our perceptual field being limited. That could suggest that we might be able to expand it.

The Anunnaki narrative speaks of us laboring for superiors, and you can see that we are hardwired to do that, but what if we were able to break down that programming and start working for one another instead of those above us? What if we re-engineered all our neurological slave settings? And allow ourselves to live less fearful lives? What would that look like ?

Many of the cultures that have curated these stories of beginnings, have also curated, modalities, methods that are designed to reawaken a higher state of consciousness. So ancient Greek culture, which had this narrative also, had the modality of a kykeon ritual.

In Mesoamerica we find another tea ceremony with exactly the same purpose. If we go to indigenous Australia or Native America, we find smoke- and smoking ceremonies, and similar activities in the ancient Indian cultures that produced the Vedas. Eastern monastic traditions have disciplines of stillness and conscious breathing.

And it seems that they really do have effect, in terms of altering our state of consciousness and heightening our abilities for a better human experience.

If you look at all these ancient texts and study them, and most of all the Genesis stories and the Anunnaki narratives, it’s very clear they’re not stories about Gods, they’re stories about the “powerful ones” or “The shining ones”.

If you’ve got a being who can literally say to the ocean “thus far and no further”, then our ancestors would naturally say “these are our superiors, these are our Gods”, and worship them. The problem is that these terraforming beings were not God, and they did things that gives this away. Not least, that they modified our ancestors to be a slave species for them and treated us with great disregard in a number of ways. Not least, that in a number of narratives, there are genocides committed by these visitors.

And so when you’ve got these leaders who actually have no empathy towards the human race, who have engineered us as much as we would engineer “dolly the sheep”. And are terraforming the planet, not just for our benefit, but for something that “they” are looking for, then you’ve got a very confused picture if you think that’s God.

Because suddenly you’ve got a God who can be very violent, genociding, cannot be questioned, and has no fellow feeling with the human race. If that is your image of God, and that’s what you come to when you translate these other entities like “the sky beings” or “the Elohim as god”, then the image of God you end up with is not some beautiful image of the cosmic source, a source of harmony and love and order, the source of all things. You end up with a being who is very much like an abusive and alcoholic father figure.

And it has to be said, but that sort of image of God has been used by religions through the centuries as a way of fear-mongering and manipulating human populations. And that is a confusion we have put on ourselves through bad translations of our ancient texts.

The Edo people of Southern Nigeria and Benin, tell a story from the dawn of time. in it “the Sons of Osanobua arrive on planet earth. They are beings who arrive from outer space to a planet that is entirely covered by water”. Their task is to terraform it. After they have cleared the waters from the higher ground, their leader and father Osanobua appears in the sky and descends from what appears to be a chain, stretching as far as the eye can see into the heavens. Osanobua then delegates to his sons all the subtle works of terraforming the planet, to make it ready for human society.

There are a number of things that are really interesting about the Edo story of creation. And the first is that planet earth already exists, before any of the so-called work of creation is done, it exists but is flooded with water. And that is a detail that recurs in ancestral narratives all around the world. We then have the motive of the higher beings, the sky beings, coming down from the heavens, and a visual description of what that looked like when their leader Osanobua arrived. On what looked like a chain stretching into the heavens. Now clearly, the tellers of this story, are reaching for a metaphor at that point. They are trying to describe what they saw in the terms of the technology that they had. So what was it that they were seeing?

An ancient Filipino narrative of creation speaks of the arrival of a giant bird, who hovers hawk-like over the flooded waters of the planet. The giant bird then creates vortices of wind wich pull the waters away from the higher ground to create the islands, and so the work of terraforming begins.

This aspect of the use of vortices of wind to clear land on a prehistoric flooded planet earth repeats in various narratives around world. And not least of them all, the Sumerian stories, those told on the ancient Cuneiforms of the Mesopotamian cultures of Sumeria, Babylonia, Arcadia and Assyria.

And when we read the Sumerian narrative, again we got the descent of beings from the heavens to planet earth. To a planet Earth that is flooded, and the first thing that they have to do is the separation of the waters, separate fresh water from salt water, if they are going to nurture life on earth, and the separation of land from water.

Some technology has to be used to say to the sea “thus far and no further” and once again we’ve got vortices of wind doing the work, the four winds of the Sumerian narrative.

Is the same visual memory being told from culture to culture? And if it is, then who were the eyewitnesses who recalled this ancient visitation ?

Francisco Ximénez was the Dominican priest who in the very early 1700’s translated an ancient cliche text which has been entrusted to him. It was the Mayan creation narrative and it spoke of the arrival of beings from the heavens to a flooded planet earth. And it’s flooded and shrouded in darkness.

And those who arrive, hover above the waters, we’re told. Hover above the waters and hold discussions as to how they’re going to nurture life one Earth, botanical life, and then zoological life, and then intelligent life with which they can work.

What the text leaves open is the question of what they are hovering in. But if we’re willing to read these ancient mythologies alongside each other, it’s actually the Bible that introduces the theme of technology, and explains in what these beings have arrived, when they hovered over the prehistoric waters.

In the book of Genesis we’re told that the Elohim, the powerful ones, arrive over the dark flood waters of the planet in a Ruach. The word “Ruach” is popularly translated as the spirit of God, and in later texts in the Bible it appears to be used in that way. In it’s first mention in Genesis, the text specifies that the Ruach was hovering. The word for hovering, melaheth, is the word the Bible uses to describe how birds of prey hover in the sky, appearing to float in the air without moving their wings. this is what the powerful ones “Ruach” was doing, it was hovering in the sky without moving any wings.

The Filipino narrative speaks about the hawk hovering over the waters, and with its wings creating vortices of wind to separate the waters from the land, and so there’s a really interesting note here in Genesis wich talks about this Ruach which is hovering lika a hawk. One can ask itself if there’s a connection there. There is another connection in the word itself.

Mauro Biglino is a scholar of ancient Hebrew. For many years he worked for the Saint Paul Press in Rome translating with great precision the literal meaning of Hebrew words, the Vatican approved interlinear Bibles. Providing the interlinear meaning is a very exact discipline. The scholar must be rigorous in avoiding any kind of interpretation of the word and give only the literal etymological meaning of each word part. So it is with that degree of precision that Mauro Biglino explains in his writings that the use of the word “ruach” in Hebrew literature shows that the word means either a wind or something flying through the air and creating a strong wind. This meaning has survived to this day in the Ethiopian Amharic word “Roha”, It means a fan or anything that moves through the air and creates a wind. What could this wind-making Ruach possibly be?

So just like the mysterious forces in the Sumerian narrative or in the Tagalog version, we have a story of strong winds, vortices of wind being used to terraform the planet. The winds are being created by a ruach, so what is that, a ruach? Mauro Biglino argues that a ruach is a craft and asked the question of how this word would have been written in primitive cuneiform script.

Broken into two phonemes, two elements emerge. One element is that of a body of water and the second element is of something hovering over the water. To the modern eye it’s very difficult not to perceive it as some kind of flying object hovering over a body of water. In primitive Cuneiform, a flying object hovering over water is also pronounced “roe-ach” and the writers remembered that it created a strong vortex of wind being used in terraforming the planet.

It’s fair to say that not every scholar agrees with that interpretation of ruach, but an actual fact is that the word’s meaning is confirmed if we go further into the Bible, into the stories of Moses and Ezekiel.

Ezekiel speaks about a ruach which picked him up and took him on journeys around Mesopotamia (ancient Iraq) flying in the sky. He describes how this ruach appeared in the sky, how it landed, what it looked like, the materials it was made of and what kind of wheels it had. The precision with which Ezekiel describes this craft, this ruach, is so great that NASA actually has a patent on those wheels.

It was granted in 1974 to Josef Blumrich, it’s called the omni-directional wheel. So those who want to translate “ruach” as the Spirit or Spirit of God have a bit of a problem here. How can NASA have a patent on the Spirit of God? They don’t, they have a patent on an ancient technology described in great detail in the Bible.

Sanskrit texts from the ancient Indian world of the invaders have no embarrassment in describing the “Vimanas” in their ancient stories in technological terms as flying craft with the capability for both aerial and space flight. A 1000 year old text from the common Era, called the “Samarangana Sutradhara” and written by King Bhoja of Dhar, describes the capabilities and propulsion systems of the Vimana. The mahabharata speaks of Vimanas which could fly , dispatch sound seeking missiles and destroy targets with something that we would call lasers. Once again, the ancient writers reach for metaphors to describe unfamiliar and powerful technology in Earthly terms. Some Vimanas are described in terms befitting earthly palaces. yet there is no attempt to make mechanical devices or physical technologies sound like something ethereal or spiritual. In some Indian languages like Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, and Hindi, vimana or vimanam means “aircraft”, for example in the town name Vimanapura (a suburb of Bangalore) and Vimannagar, a town in Pune

Another word the bible uses for ancient flying technology is “Kavod“, and it means “heavy”. The way it’s used in the texts shows us that these big heavy things could fly, but when they landed, they created quite a ruckus. They would arrive in fire and smoke, the Earth would shake beneath them and a sound like an enormous waterfall would emanate from the craft. And it’s “in one of these things” that the character Yahweh appears in the Book of Exodus and meets with Moses on Mount Sinai. The conventional translation gets into some difficulty here, because at the end of this long dialogue, Moses asks this powerful one, this Yahweh, “can I see your kavod? Would you show me the Kavod?”. Yahweh explains to Moses that he can’t see the big heavy thing move, because if you do, it will kill you. And the words being used are very interesting.

Yahweh explains to Moses that seeing the Kavod at close range would be fatal. Instead Yahweh says he will cause the goods, “סְחוֹרוֹת” in Hebrew, to pass by in front of Moses. The “goods” is another word he uses to describe the Kavod. Moses will then be able to watch the kavod as it moves away, however to avoid being killed, Moses will need to be sheltered by a cleft in the rock and protected by Yahweh’s hand or “paneh”. This ever so intriguing episode has been rendered in conventional translations as “Moses being allowed to see God’s goodness from behind, but not face to face”. But how exactly can you see “goodness” ? And see it from behind? Furthermore, since Moses has been enjoying a face-to-face conversation with Yahweh for some days, how can he now be told that a face-to-face encounter would prove fatal? Clearly something else is intended.

The explanation that Yahweh gives to Moses is that when the Kavod moves, Moses cannot see it “paneh”, One of the translations of the word “Paneh” means “open, openly”, and the first uses of the word “Paneh” suggests that it means on the surface or out in the open. So what Yahwey is saying is that Moses cannot be out in the open when the Kavod moves or the forces will kill him. That’s why he has to be sheltered in a cleft in the rock.

We all remember the launch of the space shuttle discovery, and the forces of that launch are all-inspiring to see. The launch is essentially a controlled explosion, and the forces of that explosion are so dangerous, that the technicians closest to the launch, are three miles away, sheltered behind reinforced concrete.

So that gives us a framework for understanding why Moses could not be out in the open when the Kavod, or heavy thing, or rauch moves. The conventional translations have it that ,nobody can see Yahweh face-to-face and live. Except then for Moses apparently, who can do that for days. But then again, except when he can’t, and when he can’t then he’s allowed to see God’s goodness, but he can only see Yahweh’s goodness from behind? Now, anyone coming across that translation knows that something ain’t right here, that the translation isn’t coherent.

Translators in times past, really puzzled over what to do with this text, because they did not have a technological framework to bring to this story. But now we know that a Ruach is a craft with omni-directional wheels and a Kavod is a heavy flying craft. And now that we have a technological framework, we can understand this text differently. We now have a language that previous generations of translators did not have. In this present, we have the language of spacecraft, we have the language of launches, we have the language of wormholes and so on ..

Now, the ancients who had these experiences, told us what they saw, and in between them and us, are centuries of translators who had a go at this without any technological framework. Today we’re able to look at these texts and understand what we are being told : That in ancient times, our ancestors were visited by technological beings from another planet who came an helped to rehabilitate a flooded planet Earth and terraform it for our ancestors. And not only that, they had a hands-on involvement in our development as a species.

One of the keys to understand these texts, is to read mythologies alongside each other. When you realize that for example the Ido narrative, the Sumerian narrative, the Filipino narrative, the Mesoamerican narrative and the Biblical narrative are all relaying essentially the same story, then it’s much easier to understand our creation story as it REALLY was. It’s not reiterations of the same oral tradition, these different peoples all have the same visual memory of what happened. And that is very interesting, because if you think about us and the development as a species, visual memory is going to take us much further back than any oral tradition.

What difference does it make if a flooded planet earth was rehabilitated by visitors from outer space or by an almighty God? What are the implications for us today one way or the other ?

Arrival of the Anunnaki by Gary G Mangrove

When our ancient ancestors saw beings who had the power to create these incredible vortices of wind, who had the power to terraform, who had the power to do genetic engineering and help life on earth back onto its feet, then ofcourse these look like Divine powers from the perspective of our ancestors. If you’ve got a being who can literally control the oceans, then our ancestors would naturally say that these are our superiors, that these are our Gods, and worship them.

It’s not just about re-translating ancient texts and finding technology in them and how fascinating that is. It’s about doing the translation work to seperate the idea of the cosmic source from all the activities of the ancient visitors who came to our planet after cataclysm, terraformed it, and managed our ancestors.

A God figure who has to be appeased is a profoundly disempowering vision for humanity. But if we can perceive ourselves as a unique race in a populated universe and finding our source in the cosmos itself and not in servitude of a superior being, then does this offer a more empowering vision for humanity? There’s no doubt that translating Elohim in the plural reframes the whole story of human beginnings. Why is the translation of the word Elohim so controversial? Why through so many centuries has it been translated as God? When Elohim is translated in the plural, then what is the startling truth that emerges hidden in plain sight in the pages of Genesis?

When Elohim is translated in the plural, it reveals plural beings, plural interventions in our evolution as a species and plural agendas for the human race. The plural Elohim, the powerful ones, were part of the world of Abraham and Sarah, the progenitors of the Hebrew tradition. When a neighbouring chief asked Abraham “why did you leave Ur of the Chaldees”, which was a mesopotamian based culture full of stories of sky people, tha answer that Abraham gave was “because the Elohim told me”. “the Elohim” and “Told me”, are both in plural in that answer.

These “plural beings” were part of Abraham and sarah’s world and they crop up later in their story. Though generations of translators have translated Elohim as God, Abraham, the progenitor of tha Hebrew tradition was very familiar with Elohim as “plural beings”. The word means, if we take the root meaning, it means the powerful ones. 

Some scholars have argued that it means the powers of God and that’s why it’s in the plural, but that doesn’t quite relate to how other pluralizations work in Hebrew. For example, a cherub, is a supernatural being in the Bible, but in plural it’s Cherubin, many cherubs, not the many qualities of cherub kind. When translators want to say that it means the powers of God, what that fails to take into account, is that these powers conflict with one another over agendas for the human race as it is written in the book of Genesis. So how would these powers conflict with each other if it were only one entity?

These powers go to war against each other, and human beings get massacred in the process of those conflicts. So no, it’s not the powers of a divinity. We are talking about extraterrestrial demographics, who arrived as a colonizing force on planet Earth, and our ancestors were caught in the crossfires as they went to war over “project Earth”.

The ancient Norse mythologies speak of conflicts among advanced beings as they conflict with one another over the management of the human race. These stories can be found to echo all around the world. The ancient Indian Vedas and the stories of the Mahabharata, tell of kings warring against each other with advanced technology, as they battle for hegemony of a project Earth. 
Greek mythology speaks of advanced beings living nearby, but somehow inaccessible to the human race on Mount Olympus. They too battle with one another over questions of how to manage human beings.

These stories of wars among the powerful ones, are there in Genesis as well. There is a whole theme of stories in the pages in the Hebrew scriptures, which can be referred to as the sky council. Sometimes also referenced as the “Divine council” or the “heavenly council”, but the behavior of the members of the council isn’t really Divine or heavenly, they really do go to war with one another and conflict with one another constantly, over questions of how the human race should be developed, herded or protected.

So these council members, they’re not avatars for a loving Holy God, they are different Extraterrestrial fractions competing with one another for the stakes in the management of our planet. We can assume that the Elohim referenced the members of this “sky council”, which our ancestors were aware of.

In 1.Kings.22, one of the Hebrew prophets was able to “remote view” what was going on in that council and it wasn’t pretty. If you go back to the stories of beginnings in Genesis 1 to 11, we have stories that reveal a number of ET arrivals, incursions, interventions, and a number of different agendas bumping up against each other.

The first agenda we find in Genesis 1, the first two sentences and it seems to be a benevolent one, because what’s being mentioned there is the arrival of ET visitors who are helping to recover the planet Earth after a cataclysm that has left the planet devastated and for the most part flooded. So it’s a benevolent intervention to rehabilitate life on Earth. And that’s a story that you can find echoed in ancestral narratives and mythologies in cultures spanning the globe. The details that correlate are very interesting.

If we go to Genesis 3, here we have two agendas for humanity conflicting with one another. One is saying let’s upgrade the human beings to be more like us, and the other is saying, we don’t want them to too much like us. One faction wants the humans more conscious, more intelligent for a better human experience. And the other faction wants the humans kept so unintelligent that we don’t even know we’re naked, they wants us at an animal level. And there’s a conflict, and it’s actually the subordinate who goes ahead and does the genetic modification and upgrade. All those themes can also be found in the Sumerian stories, and what happens the moment you translate Elohim in plural, is of course that you realize we’re reading the Sumerian narrative. We’re reading the stories of Enlil and Enki and the other “sky-people” of the Mesopotamian narratives.

In Genesis 6, there is a story told which you can find all around the world, in Africa, the Caribbean, the Philippines, India, I northern countries, in Celtic regions, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. All have versions of this story and it’s a story of ancient hybridization. What’s interesting the way Genesis 6 reports that, is that it is the second wave of ET arrivals that our ancestors appear to remember, and these ones, the Bene Elohim, the ones like the powerful ones, they’re here for another reason. They find the human race very attractive and want to be more like us, and so they take human females in order to improve their own gene pool. It’s such a bizarre story if it comes from the writer of Genesis 6. The flood in Genesis 6 is another narrative that repeats around the world and it comes in respons to this Hybridization that has upset the delicate balance among ET demographics.

In Genesis 11 there is a visitation of planet Earth by another extraterrestrial force, the way it’s translated right now is presented as a Yahweh story, That’s the Holy name of God given to Moses, but this is a story from ages before the time of Moses and there are clues that we are reading an Elohim story because the pluralizations are still there.

What were these ancient ET presences doing on planet Earth? What were the motivations behind their presence ? And what were the agendas that brought them into conflict?

If you fail to realize that we are talking about a council or a federation, that is debating and arguing and going to war, if you translate all that as the actions of God, because Elohim equals god, then all of a sudden you have a God who’s double-minded, argues with himself, and goes to war against himself so violently that the human race almost gets wiped out in the process. If you think about the conflicts, over how intelligent human beings should be, the flood story where one demographic wants to kill them all and one that wants to save humanity, these are conflicting agendas. They are not the conflicting thoughts of a Deity, they are the stories of ancient conflicts that our ancestors have recalled in different ways, using different images and different metaphors, but making it very clear the same memory is being evoked and it’s the story of an alien presence on planet Earth.

In 2020, Haim Eshed, the former chief of Israel’s space security agency, gave a briefing in which he referred to an intergalactic federation, in effect a council of ET presence or with stakeholding in planet earth, but who whish their presence to be kept a secret. Haim Eshed is only the latest of a number of senior officials in 2020, who have made such comments.
Christopher Mellon, the former assistant secretary of defense for presidents Clinton and George W Bush, along with Eric Davies, a physicist who worked as a consultant for the Pentagon , have given briefings regarding ET technology materials from off-world vehicles that are not made on this planet.

That is another acknowledgement of an ET presence around planet Earth, a council of ET demographics, and this is very much in tune with what we heard through the decade from Edgar Mitchell, the sixth man to walk on the moon. He , from the 1970’s until his death in 2016, was a constant advocate for the USA declassifying its UFO-files, so that the human race could take its place as part of a community of space-faring species. That was his hope for humanity in the light of all that he had discovered.

Bearing in mind that Edgar Mitchell and all involved in the Mercury and Apollo programs would have been bound by layers and layers of official secrets lawlers. The fact that he said that publicly so many times, is very significant now that we’re hearing from Luis Elizondo, who headed up the pentagon unit for investigating UFO engagement and crashes, and now that we heard from Haim Eshed  , the former chief for Israel’s space security program, a picture is emerging that lines up with what our ancestors told us about the sky-council.

It’s very interesting to look at what these “Elohim” , these “Powerful Ones”, conflicted over. So they have an argument in Genesis 3 about how intelligent the human beings should be, how educated, how informed, what access they should have to food and water, what access to medicines. These are all part of the story, and then we get to genesis 11 and there’s a story about whether human beings should be allowed this level of technology or that level of technology, and about how many should we have on the planet before we take action.

What’s interesting about those themes is that they are very relevant to the 21st century, and anyone reading these stories might ask, are these stories about our past ? or about our present ? Because even today, people will debate human population, about what is the best or the most sustainable for the Earth and what action we should take if we think there are too many of us?

Debate about access to food are very typical, food and water in the 21st century. You’ve got the conflicts between petrochemical and industrial scale farming, where foods are patented and so access to food becomes an issue, competing against traditional organic farming, which have been the way we’ve done it through the ages.

What about access to medicine, again there’s a conflict between the industrial pharmaceutical approach with a control of patents, which then limits access the life-saving medicines or you’ve got the more traditional approach or the open market approach, they conflict against one another.

Access to drinking water is a huge issue in the 21st century, is it a right for human populations or is it a right for corporations? And that is a very real struggle right now.

The story about human intelligence, how intelligent should human beings be, is also very topical, in Australia we had some legislative changes that were about positioning our education system to deliver human beings who are industry ready, and so there’s been a shift away from an education modal to a training model to an industry-led model. And this really echoes some of the languages we find in our ancient stories, the Popol Vuh in particular.

The Popol Vuh expresses the Mayan narrative of beginnings, it tells of advanced beings arriving on flooded planet Earth, who set about terraforming and adapting our ancestors into a useful workforce. Quetzalcoatl, otherwise known as Kukulcan or Qʼuqʼumatz, is the chief genetic engineer. He produces a being more advanced than ourselves, we could call them Homo Sapiens.

We could call them homo sapiens Quetzalcoatlus, which is us plus a bit of precognition, so the cognitive abilities a bit more developed than our own. Unfortunately, Quetzalcoatl and the other powerful ones confer and they say “they humans are too difficult to mangage, they’re too smart”, can we dumb them down a bit? And so the final experiment involves Quetzalcoatlus producing a vapor, that when sprayed over human populations, damages their neurological connections so that their perceptual field is brought down to the five physical senses, no more.

This is another story that when you hear it you think wait a minute, a vapor sprayed over human populations to bring them down ? Are we talking about the past or the present ? Because today people are concerned about what is being sprayed into our atmospheres. Why are we finding metals in our soils? In our oceans? In our food supplies? And is that good or bad for us?

When we think about the “lead poisoning in children investigation“, in the 1970’s, was suggesting what we were pumping into our atmosphere from our road vehicles was damaging our children neurologically. Children who lived in highly polluted areas and went to school that were surrounded by idling traffic, were found more aggressive and less intelligent because of lead in the fuel we were using.

So this story of a vapor that creates brain damage is both contemporary and ancient. In ancient Rome, they used water that came into their city through lead-lined pipes. In the 1800’s, researchers began to investigate that and suggested that this could have had an effect on the behavior of the ancient Romans, making them less intelligent and more aggressive because of lead poisoning.

So these concerns about what is pumped into our environment, are very relevant today and they were also very relevant thousands of years ago when our ancestors wrote these stories about the vapor and Quetzalcoatl and their agenda for humanity.

What is a mythology? Is it a vehicle of ancient memory? or is it a metaphor to convey moral teachings or philosophical ideals?

When you see some of the extraordinary correlations among the ancestral narratives of cultures, ancient cultures that apparently had no contact with each other, then you see those overlaps that makes you realize that we are reading these stories wrong.

Some people read them in a fundamentalist way, word for word, others try and look for a moral in the story. You can’t really read the Genesis stories in a fundamentalist way, the morals that would emerge from it would be ridiculous. But if you try to see the moral and connections in the stories, you begin to realize that these stories are carrying a memory with them and sometimes what’s being brought to us is a visual memory.

Different cultures have different languages, different metaphors and different images, but they are reporting the same visual memory of what happened to our ancestors in a time long ago. So it’s very possible that these stories have been curated, not just to tell us about the past, but to give us a grid for understanding why things work the way to do today.

Were our world mythologies written to evoke a picture of hope ? Or are they a council despair? Do the ET narratives suggest that humanity is a noble sovereign species? Or as a species that was engineered to serve as slaves for an alien presence?

The idea of a council of multiple alien presences is somewhat reassuring, because the ancient stories tell us that among that spectrum of agendas are some agendas that are very pro-human, that there are some demographics who are here because they care about Homo Sapiens, they care about human beings. Their presence on the council is a stabilizing and reassuring one, but even those who came with more selfish agendas, those who came in Genesis 6 to hybridize, seem point to the fact that there is something unique and special about human beings.

What if we can do business with these entities from the ancient stories ? If we can do business with, what Haim Eshed says about a galactic federation of which we can potentially be a part, then we can begin to see that the human race is something very special in the Cosmos. Some are here just because of us, and that gives us a reason to see ourselves in a different way.

Is it possible that our blend of animal strength, mammal emotion and higher consciousness has produced a species with the unique capacity for love, compassion, creativity and harmony? It’s not hard to believe that some alien entities are here or are observing us because human beings are unique and special for those reasons.

If that is the case and we can take our place in an intergalactic federation, then we would be understanding who we are, where we came from and our great potential as human beings.
