October 2001 - December 2003
I have been investigating the symbols used by secret societies and mystery cults to try and establish the existence of a hidden seam of golden knowledge about the Dark Star.
My premise is that these symbols are very ancient, and have survived the ravages of persecutions down the years, as monotheism and dogmatic religious authorities have attempted to stamp out the old teachings. We now live in more enlightened times (one would hope), and the secret esoteric symbols have been gradually emerging from their shells.
However, the guardians of these teachings have really no better idea
of what they mean than any of the rest of us. The esotericists have
interpreted these symbols, it is true, but these interpretations are more a
reflection of their modern spiritual values than those of the ancients
themselves. Many might disagree with this view, but I start with this as my
I will soon release alchemical images that show clearly the role of Nibiru as the Messianic Star, or the Dark Sun.
On this page I will show more of the alchemical images (1), but with the onus upon Freemasonry, another secret society that appears to hold promise for this research. This 16th Century image (right), for instance, seems to show a red fiery globe, among a field of 7 stars (its moons?), between the Sun and Luna (2).
Clutching this globe, the alchemist appears to be moving onto solid ground, perhaps even moving between planets...Note how the coronal discharge of the red orb is swept back from the Sun, as one would expect when the brown dwarf's coronal discharge interacts with the Solar Wind.
This is the origin of the
appearance of the Winged Disc during Nibiru's perihelion passage.
They have this Star motif placed in prominent places in their Temples, or Lodges. Many of their rituals are derived from Isian rites, and ancient Egyptian symbols feature strongly in the Craft, even though many of their degrees are actually Mosaic, or sometimes Christian, in character.
There is emphasis placed upon the
appearance of a bright light in the darkness, derived from the 'Black Rite',
described by Isis in 'The Virgin of the World'. This celestial entity known
as the 'Night' "weaves her web with rapid light though it be less than
The five visible planets and the Sun and Luna make up the standard set of planetary symbols, but the rebus is stood upon the alchemical dragon, Azoth, who breathes fire.
He, in turn, lies upon a Winged Disc that is evidently neither the Sun nor Mercury.
Geometrical workings are at play within the
disc, in keeping with the other Masonic symbols, and the numbers 4 and 3
appear to hint at that magic number 7 again...
Matthew Scanlan has described the Triangular Lodge of Rushton in Northamptonshire and links much of the symbolism used within its architecture to alchemy (5).
(I am particularly impressed by a motif of the 'seven eyes of God within a hexagon (sic)' on the building).
The Equilateral Triangle is one of the oldest of the sacred symbols, according to James Churchward, and represents the Trinity or the Triune Godhead:
This image shows a line of Luna, Mercury and Sol. Above them is the equilateral triangle of the Masons containing an Eagle (7).
We are also
treated to a red burning orb and seven raindrops (Water and Fire, or seven
moons and the brown dwarf Nibiru?)
It is often shown with an enclosed eye, the 'all-seeing eye of Osiris' according to Churchward, who notes that this combined symbol was often seen "in ancient Catholic churches, over the main altar" (6).
Americans will be very well acquainted with this symbol, as it
is part of the Masonic imagery shown on their One Dollar bills.
It is already well known that the founding fathers of the American Constitution were almost all Freemasons. Ovason discusses the significance of the year 1881 to esoteric thinkers during the 19th Century in the USA:
The Rosicrucian, Thomas Henry Burgoyne, one of the learned and perplexing esoteric writers working in 19th -century America, had already commented on the mysterious hypothetical planet, the 'Dark Satellite'...
Burgoyne's interpretation of the movement and Ages of the Dark Star varies somewhat from mine, but, as I said, his understanding is based upon his own interpretation of ancient symbolism he would have been party to as a Rosicrucian.
He also claimed to be a Mason.
Ovason has this to say about him:
Burgoyne also had a lot to say about reincarnation, it appears. But it is the vital connection with 1881 that correlates with the theory I have been developing over the last two years.
Let me offer you a very remarkable
synchronicity about 1881, and you can judge yourself whether the Dark
Satellite is simply yet another re-interpretation of the ancient knowledge
of the Dark Star.
I have extended this idea to propose that the last Nibiruan passage marked the beginning of our current era, and that the appearance of the Messianic Star was actually the dark star Nibiru moving through the planetary zone.
Nibiru's alleged orbital period of 3600 years was a Sumerian approximation to neatly fit into their sexagessimal system, and appears to be about 3750 years in reality. As such, our calendars have begun with Nibiruan appearances, each time marking the start of a new Nibiruan Age.
The exact chronology is less clear, because the appearance of the Star might have been in the years preceding 1AD, for instance, and the Jewish count of years might be slightly askew also (3756BC has been suggested). But in previous centuries this was not appreciated, and the dates of 3760BC and 1AD were pretty much set in stone.
The Stairway to Heaven sought by the Freemason
appears to ascend to a seven-pointed star in the East. The seven stars that
are becoming remarkably familiar appear to be offset, grouped with Luna.
This may be because of their ancient connection with the upturned crescent,
but they nevertheless make their presence felt even here, in the standard
symbolism of Freemasonry.
This is the year that it was expected to commence its long return voyage to the planetary zone.
The central constellation highlighted by the Arch is that of Cancer, the 'Gate of Birth' into the higher realm.
It is also the constellation through which Nibiru brightens as it enters the Duat at perihelion. The Duat is found below the Arch, in the south, between Leo/Cancer and Taurus/Aries.
So is it any surprise, therefore, to find a cometary Star and seven smaller stars at Nibiru's perihelion position in this Masonic image? Given the other revelations about Masonic lore and Nibiru covered here, then perhaps it should be no surprise at all. The American Freemasons appear to have inherited the ancient symbolism of a Dark Star Cult.
They may not like this
explanation, but it seems that the Star of the East they revere is none
other than Nibiru.
During these last few centuries while Nibiru has been near aphelion, its lateral movement across the sky has been almost negligible year on year. It is essentially a fixed object with respect to parallax effects, and would have a stationary position against the field of stars in the sky. This is why it is so hard to find, particularly as it lies in the massive star-field of the Milky Way.
The constellations opposite the
Duat are Aquila and Ophiuchus.
So what better motif than that of the Eagle for this emergent world-power?
More Masonic Symbols
Investigating Freemasonry is a difficult enterprise for a non-Mason such as myself.
On the one hand, Freemasons are anxious to give the impression that the Craft and other orders/degrees are becoming more open to scrutiny, in order to gain the confidence of a suspicious public, but on the other hand...
Well, it goes without saying that an organization that has cherished its secrecy for so long will be slow to truly open up. It would be unwise to say too much about what I think Freemasonry is all about. I'm likely to be incorrect, not being an Initiate of the Craft. But I can provide tangible evidence that indicates that many of the symbols I have alluded to are contained within Masonic lore.
Here are some further examples:
This image shows the interior of the Lodge De Goed Hoop Temple (Lodge of Good Hope) in Cape Town, South Africa (14).
Note the five-pointed 'blazing star' which is flush with a red aura. Of more interest however is the Moon icon, which is replete with seven small stars.
Again, I think the red
crescent of Nibiru's coronal discharge at perihelion has become integrated
with the crescent moon down the centuries, leading to the seven stars being
depicted with the Moon, not the 'Blazing Star'. It's difficult to imagine
why the seven stars would be so often associated with the Moon otherwise. I
suspect the 'Blazing Star' is the conjunction of Nibiru with
In his article, the Rev Parker amusingly notes how Masonic imagery found on the architecture of churches is often put down to a tribute following the accidental death of a Mason falling from the roof.
'Mason's set square' at Gloucester Cathedral is given as an example...an incongruity I can investigate in my own town!
This Scottish Lodge (St Bryde No 579) boasts a Blazing Star that appears very much like a classic Winged Disc (16).
One of the things that I find very interesting is the presence of the two pillars.
These no doubt symbolize the two pillars upon which Knowledge was written prior to the Flood: one could withstand the destruction of the Deluge, the other was capable of surviving a fiery cataclysm (one wonders whether the excitation of Nibiru as it approaches the Sun is reciprocated; that the super-charged Sun might cause massive global over-heating during some perihelion passages).
We have seen the two pillars deployed in alchemical images also, and it is possible that their presence may indicate an archeo-astronomical significance. In other words, the appearance of the Winged Disc is meant to be seen between two marker pillars, or obelixes.
Speculative Freemasons certainly show much interest in related Egyptian relics.
Apparently, according to David Icke, this was the very first American flag (17). The original Stars and Stripes in the form of a comet and accompanying set of seven stars! It contains all of the relevant symbols associated with Nibiru, the Dark Star. There is the massive comet containing the Eye (of The Watchers, or Nephilim?) and the seven accompanying stars, or moons. Quite remarkable.
So were the founders of the USA knowingly presenting the image
of the hidden Dark Sun as their own?
The flag shown here could have easily been derived from symbolism deployed on the Lafayette Apron, which was presented to Washington himself.
themselves have put forward explanations for the symbols, but add that no
interpretation can be considered absolute. The following is derived from
work by Frank W. Bobb, Grand Lodge librarian and curator at the Grand Lodge
Museum in Philadelphia, where the 'Washington Apron' is kept.
This 'God' of the freemasons is emblazoned with fiery radiance, within which can be found the Seven Stars (number 40 in right image). These are said to represent the seven Liberal Arts and sciences of the Freemasons. In this sense, then, the All-Seeing Eye is the fount of Masonic knowledge and learning.
Did the Freemasons know about Nibiru through esoteric and hidden knowledge passed to them from older, persecuted Orders or heretical sects? Was this hidden knowledge so central to their secret system of beliefs that it was used by Washington and his colleagues to create the flag of the United States of America?
It's an amazing thought.
"Uriel's Machine" is a fascinating book, and the excerpts pointed out by Greg Jenner do make for very interesting reading. They provide a direct link between a description of the Dark Star and its satellites at perihelion, and myth connected with catastrophic Earth changes.
A little unexpected given that I am not even a Mason, but I know my Dad will be proud. http://masons.start4all.com "A Must 4 Masons Worldwide".
