The red ‘star’ Horus, was born from Sirius (white Isis), a celestial event that captured the meaning of the Egyptian mythology beautifully. It is less easy to pinpoint a specific date, however, as many of the ancient accounts of red Sirius were traditional, and based upon earlier texts.
The account of Seneca represents the latest possible date, I would suggest, which was in 25AD. However, the Bible contains the description of the Messianic Star as the ‘Star of Bethlehem’, whose appearance occurred sometime between 12BC and 1AD. Modern scholars tend to date this event to about 6BC, a little further back in time than previously thought (1)
If Nibiru appeared during the decade preceding the beginning of the Christian calendar, then we can calculate Nibiru’s current periodicity as being about 3750-60 years (given that Zecharia Sitchin has dated the previous perihelion passage of Nibiru to 3760BC, the first year of the Nippurian calendar, and the start of the Jewish Count of Years).
This orbital period of about 3750 years is greater than that described by Sitchin (3,600 years) and I believe that this greater figure reflects a slight expansion of Nibiru’s orbit at the time of the Flood. Nibiru appears to have been in conjunction with Mars during perihelion 13,000+ years ago, and may have been slightly perturbed into a larger orbit at that time. The subsequent reconfiguration of planetary binding energies affected the orbits of the other planets, including the Earth.
As a result, our planet suffered a slight axial tilt, and a progressively warmer climate as our planetary binding energy increased. The immediate effect of this event was the catastrophic flooding of the Earth and the reported visual effect of the ‘sky falling’. Both of these incredible cataclysms are recorded in diverse mythologies across the globe.
Mars may also have been affected by
catastrophic climate change in the same way, leading to a temporary release
of water to the surface of the red planet.
This figure is based upon analysis of the standard sunspot cycle, combined with orbital dynamics within the solar system, and the varying rotational periods of the Sun’s atmosphere (2). The result is a reversal of the ‘neutral sheet’, or local space around the Sun. Cotterell was unable to offer an explanation for this behavior beyond citing external influence upon the Sun.
I suggest that the
complex shape of the ‘warped neutral sheet’ is created by the Sun's periodic
interaction with the brown dwarf Nibiru as it moves through the solar system.
Nibiru's own magnetic properties might be the cause of the reversal of the
Sun’s polarity during the dark star’s perihelion passage. Cotterell
that similar numerical figures appear in Mayan records, particularly “the
Mayan super-number of 1,366,560 days recorded in the Dresden Codex”
This number corresponds to 3,741 years.
Of course, if
Zecharia Sitchin is
correct, then the Assyrians would have inherited the Sumerian knowledge of
all the planets, including Nibiru, a giant planet/brown dwarf that still
remains ‘unknown’ to us.
The Messiah was
certainly the talk of the Middle East for centuries before Christ, and I
have already outlined the celestial ramifications of this event. But much of
the world at that time was under the military control of the Romans, or the
cultural influence of the Greeks. The religions of the Winged Disc,
ancient gods of Mesopotamia and Egypt, were playing second fiddle to the
European imports, rather like Americanization has side-lined many diverse
traditions of our modern world. Despite these difficulties, an expectation
above and beyond the craving for the coming Messiah was evident.
It contains reliefs of Pharaohs embracing gods and,
The Egyptologist David Rohl draws comparisons between the rituals enacted at Edfu and the Temple of Dendera, and the religious ceremonies of Sumer. Most importantly is his point that,
It is my contention that the Winged Disc was not the Sun at all, but the
dark star Nibiru, the Star of the East. I believe that the Temple of Horus
at Edfu was constructed in anticipation of the return of the Celestial Lord.
Between Cancer and Sirius is a peculiar symbol; a falcon perched on a vertical ‘club’. Sitchin considers this to indicate the Age of the depiction as being between 6540BC and 4380BC (7). I strongly doubt that this is the meaning of the ceiling depiction.
Graham Hancock notes that the Dendera zodiac depicts the constellations at the cardinal points as they appeared in 4000BC (8)
This coincides roughly with the previous passage of Nibiru in 3760BC. I believe that the distortion of the zodiac is designed to impart knowledge of the parabolic visible motion of Nibiru through the Duat, and that the Ptolemaic Temple of Dendera was constructed with the ancient teachings of the ‘Followers of Horus’ firmly in mind.
In the zodiac, the falcon is Horus, equated with the Winged Disc, and the club signifies a celestial marker, akin to the many obelix-type megalithic stones used by the ancients to mark positions in the heavens. Yet it is positioned away from the zodiac, within the southerly Duat.
This magnificent zodiac indicates the expectation of the imminent return of Horus among the Ptolemaic followers of the ancient Egyptian stellar cult. The brightest point of the transit was expected between Leo/Cancer and Sirius.
If Horus is indeed symbolic of the Dark Star Nibiru (and note the red disc above Horus' head), then the attendant might be moons, and we could speculate that the Bennu Bird is symbolic of the Anunnaki homeworld/moon (representing the 'Field of Reeds').
If that is the case, then this motif records a total of six moons.
Other pieces of evidence point to seven, as I have shown, and it is still
unclear which is correct. Further research is required in this area.
appearance of Nibiru in the heavens during perihelion is subject to the same
parallax effects as the other planets viewed from Earth. They sometimes
appear to slowly ‘dance’ in the sky, and Nibiru’s position in the heavens
could similarly vary, dependant upon the relative position of the Earth at
any given point in its transit. As such, Nibiru might be seen to cross the
ecliptic for the first time in Leo instead of Cancer. The monuments on
Nimrod (Nimrud Dag) in Turkey seem to imply this.
There is a shaft built into the mountainside that is 158 meters long, and set at 35 degrees. Its purpose is unknown, but given the pyramidal nature of the Hierothesion, one can imagine that this might be a ‘star shaft’ used to pinpoint a particularly significant part of the sky. Gilbert believes that this is the star Regulus in Leo. Other monuments include a second tumulus on the road to Urfa from Commagene, this one 35m high. It is set within several groupings of upright pillars, one offering a perch for an eagle, another for a headless lion. Further astronomical references are inferred by this site.
But the most significant artifact on the Nimrud Dag mountainside is to be found on the western terrace. There is a frieze of a Lion beset by stars. This has been shown to symbolize the constellation of Leo, and contains a crescent and 3 planets; Mars, Mercury and Jupiter. Scholars have shown that this frieze represents a horoscope, set in the year 62BC.
Gilbert concurs with this analysis, but is troubled by the fact that the Romans were directly interfering in the internal affairs of Commagene at that time, a shameful state of affairs that the Kings of Commagene would surely not have wanted to advertise. Perhaps, then, this religious and astronomical site had a different meaning; a Messianic craving of a people who would rather see the back of the Romans.
There is something rather peculiar about the frieze. The crescent ‘moon’ is lying on its back, as we have seen before, and a star has been placed within the lunar disc, presumably indicating to scholars that the moon occults the star Regulus. If this was a horoscope, then an actual occulting of Regulus by the moon would be an irrelevance.
Dr Seymour states quite emphatically that an astrological conjunction of planets is about their relative positions along the ecliptic, and has little to do with whether an actual visible conjunction takes place (3). Not only that, but the relative position of the Moon in the star field is quite difficult to calculate. So why include such a plainly visible conjunction on the frieze?
Using a reproduction of the frieze given on another web-site, I analyzed the relative positions of the stars on the frieze and came up with a good fit with the constellation of Leo (10).
The only problem was that, by doing so, it became apparent that the ‘occulted star’ was not Regulus! I have depicted the constellation here, and indicated the relative position of the ecliptic, as well as the positions of the other planets (that are labeled on the Frieze). This analysis then begs the question, if the star is not Regulus, then what is it?
There is a particularly striking Sumerian cylinder seal showing the Winged Disc 'in conjunction' with the crescent moon. The 16-pointed star would appear to be the Sun (Venus would be shown by an 8-pointed star). I believe that the frieze at Nimrud Dag indicates the expected return of Nibiru, and that the ‘place of crossing’ would be between Regulus and Cancer.
This would then explain the construction of the rubble Pyramid, that is claimed to have religious significance by Antiochus, and the presentation of images about gods meeting men. The people of Commagene expected a return of Kingship and the ancient gods. But when?
There was to be no match around 25AD. But, significantly, the three planets appeared in Leo in August 2BC (the 26th, specifically).
The latter stages of the perihelion transit were then hidden by the locking down of the Duat below the horizon, as well as the relative position of the Sun at that time of year. Nevertheless, enough of the transit was noted to create the ‘red Sirius’ anomaly, the account of the Star of Bethlehem, and all the attendant religious fervor that went with it.
The date 2BC is an approximation, used to identify a particular point in time. It corroborates the Messianic Star, I suggest, and strengthens the case that Nibiru appeared at the time of the birth of Christ. (My previous proposals that Seneca was recording the actual transit in 25AD, rather than alluding to a messianic tradition in place at that time, may require careful revision).
of Leo on Mount Nimrod is not a record, rather a prediction. If it was a
record, then why construct the alleged star shaft? Why draw attention to a
point in history dominated by Roman influence?
The date indicated by this quatrain is 3797AD. Does his methodology reflect that of the creator of the Nimrud Dag frieze, specifying an approximate period in time? This would then corroborate my prediction for Nibiru’s next appearance, around 3750-60AD.
If so, and Nostradamus is correct in his apocalyptic imagery, then there will be no need for a calendar after this date at all…
