To see clearly as far into the future as
possible, it is necessary to see as far back into the past as we can
and, most especially, determine what has been hidden from us, or
distorted and changed to our detriment.
What was it the folksinger sang?
"You can't know where you're going
if you don't know where you've been."
Use the word "past" and most people
focus on last week, or last year.
Old geezers like me jabber on

histories of their own professions; and classically trained experts
can easily recall principles established in epochs unknown to most
Most of us have a dim recollection that America was founded on a
framework used by the Romans of a Senate and an aggressive military
policy. Fewer still know that the Romans built their first republic
and then empire on the Greek model, and that's where most of us hit
the wall of ancient history knowledge:
the Greek classics, the
Egyptian pyramids, and some odd statuettes from Mesopotamia and
Complicating all known facts about the ancient world are the holy
books; though more myth than history, they nevertheless sway
millions of adherents to their own versions of world events.
Thus, the very foundation of our reality
remains obscured and confused by
competing religious systems, all of
which have conspired to deliberately destroy our real history for
their own benefit.
portrait of the past
In discussing the work of little known writer Henry Binkley Stein,
it is necessary to reference the controversial conclusions of
Immanuel Velikovsky and Princeton professor
Julian Jaynes to create an incredibly vivid - and heretofore
virtually unknown - snapshot of the literate world in 1500 BC, the
exact time at which humanity's most ancient legends were all formed
This missing piece of historical
perception is significantly illuminated by Stein's two short essays,
Although still ignored by mainstream science, Velikovsky's "Worlds
in Collision" was a sensational success in the 1960s, postulating
that the planet Venus assumed its present orbit only around 1500 BC,
when it was expectorated by Jupiter, passed by Earth causing great
destruction, and crashed into Mars, which then was closer to the Sun
than Earth; knocked out of its orbit, Mars thereupon also passed by
Earth to its present orbit, also causing great destruction.
These events are known to us in
legends as the blue and red star kachinas (which were one-time
events that do not recur).
Jaynes' classic "The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the
Bicameral Mind" (1976) analyzes the dual mode of consciousness that
seems like outright and open schizophrenia in one of the world's
oldest books, "The Iliad", the story of how the ancient Greeks
destroyed the ancient citadel of Troy.
The Iliad is the story of a tribe called
the Illi, also called
the Els. The way Stein tells it, the Illi, the
People of the Islands - known in Homer's work as Trojans - ruled the
world before the invention of writing.
The general consensus about the creation of the Old Testament is
reflected on a popular religious website.
"The first recorded instance of
Godís Word being written down, was when the Lord Himself wrote
it down in the form of ten commandments on the stone tablets
delivered to Moses at the top of Mount Sinai. Biblical scholars
believe this occurred between 1,400 BC and 1,500 BC... almost
3,500 years ago."
"The superstitions of the natives were utilized for the mastery
of the country and the Illi played the role of the gods," Stein
The People of the
"The greatness of classical Greece
was due to the culture of the Illi, which for the first time in
the history of the world was made available to the public,"
"Cadmus, the 'Phoenician God' who brought the alphabet to Greece
and founded Thebes, may have been a god of the serpent cult who
opposed the sun cult and broke the bonds of secrecy that
surrounded all the mysteries of the Illi by making written
language available to the public."
Remember, in those days, the words 'god'
and 'king' were often interchangeable.
An eerie chill will pass over you when you realize the linguistic
legacy of the Illi lingers in thousands of words we use over and
over again, without realizing the scope and depth of their meaning,
a tremendous collection of words whose root is Illi.
They were the city builders, called civilii. The word hill. Castle,
capitol, gentility, nobility, fidelity, hostility, ability, utility.
Civilization. All these words have -illi as their root word. And
thousands of other words. Heidelburg, the Teutonic city of learning,
means literally burg of the high Illi. Even the word 'hello' derives
from a civilization time has forgotten.
But above all, the Illi were seafarers, traders in ships bigger than
those seen a thousand years later, always headquartered on a
peaceful island, from whence they explored the major rivers and
built fortresses on hills, dazzling the uncivilized populations with
technological marvels never before seen, foremost of which was
writing, the development of which led to a profound change in the
behavior of humankind, because it created the analog mindspace, from
which all knowledge and technology developed.
Above all, the Illi extracted the first
fruits of every community with seemingly magical powers, exemplified
most vividly by the ability to communicate by writing.
It is possible to show, Stein writes, that all the gods of all the
nations bore the same surname, the name of Illi.
The Aztecs were
visited by a white Illi,
Quetzalcoatl, the plumed serpent. Illi is
shortened to "el" or "al", "la" or "le". They form the basis for
over 200 of these god names.
Babylon means gates of the Elohim. All the local gods were called 'Als'.
Mohammed framed the word 'Allah' from the article 'il' and the word
'al', thus 'ila' or 'Allah'. Levites followers of Els.
Stein recounts how these children of
Israel were really nothing more than slaves, because Jehovah kept
selling them to the Philistines and others.
Minoan civilization on the Mediterranean island of Crete was
destroyed by two cataclysms around 1500 BC, first a
earthquake and then the famous Thera volcano on the island of Santorini, which darkened the known world for many years.
While cryptologists have deciphered the
more recent Cretan script, Linear B, the earlier language, Linear A,
remains impenetrable. According to Stein, this grand history that is
missing involved the civilization that seeded and controlled all the
ancient cultures, including Babylon, Egypt and Greece.
The legendary founder of Egypt was
Menes; the legendary king of the Island of the Blest now known as
Crete was Minos (hence Minoan civilization).
"The house of Atlas ruled the world
in the age before the beginning of written history,
approximately 5000-2000 BC."
"The Greeks had a myth about the Hyperboreans, or the people who
lived beyond the North Wind. Thomas Moore wrote a poem called
the Song of the Hyperborean. Pythagoras claimed that he,
spiritually, was a Hyperborean. These Hyperboreans were a highly
talented, musically inclined race of men."
"The house of Atlas furnished the first astronomers who charted
the stars and thereby the seas. They took the Zodiac from their
homeland isle so far as from Mexico to Chaldea. The Atlas Empire
was primarily an empire of the sea. Cities built on islands were
unfortified. (Cnossus, Phaestus, Tara). Cities built on
continents were fortified. (Troy, Babylon, Cuzco). The Atlantic
Ocean took its name from the house of Atlas.
A city on the Gulf
of Mexico was named Atlan. The Atlas Mountains in Africa were
also so named. The "Atl" syllable ending is found in the names
of nearly every god of Mexico."
Life in 1500
"A fragment of the writings of Plato
(400 BC) gives a peek at the culture of the time of Atlas...
palace of Poseidon is described as a stone building with silver
roof and doors of gold. Inside there is an ivory dome above a
golden statue of a god standing un a chariot driving six winged
horses. This state was emblematical of the sun for the gods were
Outside there were hot and cold springs
surrounded by buildings and trees and basins for the baths of
the gods, the kings, citizens, women, and last of all, horses
and other beasts. Waste from these baths was conducted to a
grove of orchards and gardens.
Gymnasiums, race tracks, harbors
and ships furnished a complement to the sanctuary.
"Wealth and possessions they
considered a light load, for they were masters of themselves."
A portrait of the ancient kingdom of
Minos on the island of Crete was written was the Greek poet Pindar.
All who have courage to remain
steadfast thrice in this life,
And to keep their souls altogether free from envy,
Pursue the road to Zeus, to the castle of Chronos,
[In my Father's home are many mansions.]
Where over the Isles of the Blest ocean breezes blow and
Gleam with gold; with bracelets of flowers they entwine
And wreaths crown their heads.
Troy was the civilized city, the Greeks
were the barbarians in ancient days.
Troy was the city of the gods.
Apollo and Neptune had worked upon its walls. Zeus was the supreme
god of the Greeks. He came from Crete and established the Oracle.
Up until then, Greece was primitive...
No craft they knew, with woven brick
and jointed beams to pile the sunward porch; but the dark earth
burrowed the housed like sunless ants in sunless caves.
Jehovah was a
"Cyprus was the home of the Adonai,
the lords who ruled small cities on the mainland. A local god
was called Adonai.
The name is joined up with that of
the word Adonijah, a Biblical surname. The story of Venus and
Adonis as told by Shakespeare is but a poetical sublimation of
the orgies held upon Cyprus and even at Byblos on the mainland.
"That Jehovah was a man; that Moses and Israel thought of him as
nothing else but a living man, is evidenced in many places."
Many saw his feet, hands and back but all were forbidden from
every seeing his face - a paradigm operating in all religions:
only the high priests get to see the big god. [...] "many
instances show that God ate and drank."
"Passages too numerous to quote show that the person of Jehovah
was concealed from the people," Stein writes.
"It was puzzling to know where the Israelites got their wealth
to give Jehovah until the following passage was found: 'But
every woman shall borrow of her neighbor... jewels of silver and
gold and raiment, and put them on your sons and daughters, and
ye shall spoil Egyptians.'"
"At Jericho and other towns, women and children were utterly
massacred, all the houses were burned and only the gold and
silver [was] brought to the Lord. To what benefit was gold and
silver to the Lord if not to trade? From the hilltop down the
river to the islands prompted the words of Isaiah:
before me, O islands, and let the people renew their strength.'
"In other words, the draining out of the country of the gold and
silver, the first born of the beasts, the first fruits of the
land, not to say the first born of the people, was too much for
the people. The islands grew richer, hence the prophet said let
the people renew their strength.
'Be still, we inhabitants of
the Isle; thou whom the merchants of Zidon that pass over the
sea have replenished... the harvest of the river is her revenue
and she is the mart of the nations.'"
A prehistoric racket
"The El or god was never present
when the gift was made. It is typical of all myths that no man
could live and see the face of god.
Thus possessed of the
secrets of writing, of fire and lightning, of bronze making, and
even the secret of his own identity, a god could easily dispose
of any recalcitrant victim. Thus thirty thousand gods from
thirty thousand hills disgorged the people of their first fruits
and sent the cream of that down the rivers to the islands."
"But it was from Crete that the Sophists came and taught that
there were no gods and never had been any. And Crete was the
home of the gods."
To savage and barbarous tribes -
the first appearance of men whose mechanical inventions,
whose superior knowledge of the arts of life, nay, whose
exterior advantages of garb and mien indicate intellectual
immanence till then neither known nor imagined - presents a
something preternatural or divine. They yield as to a
teacher - not succumb to an invader.

"Such is the way the Bronze Age
conquered the Stone Age," Stein writes.
"With superior weapons
and a Machiavellian understanding of the superstitions of the
people and the inclination to take advantage of them."

Mexico and Peru
Why did the Inca and the Aztec know that white men would return?
Only one answer: because they'd been there before. The white gods
taught their ancestors how to farm, weave and build with brick.
How do you think all those

"The myth of the Incas relates that
their rulers came from the 'Island of the Sun.' The cult of the
Sun was universal for the Els had circumnavigated the globe.
Standing opposed to this cult was the much older and more savage
cult of the serpent."

Spaniards, can only be likened to the followers of Christ at his

is unwritten evidence that the lodge is the product of the
religion of Bel or Baal.
Christianity and Masonry join up in
agreement on antediluvian mythology, yet Masonry differs from
Christianity in doing no proselytizing, in doing no healing, in
avoiding many of the emotional disturbances common to
"Masonry acknowledges the Great Architect, makes morality a
skill and a training - not a miraculous conversion. Hiram of
Tyre was a worshipper of Baal (History of Masonry) and knew not
Jehovah. Hiram belonged to the Napthalia or the priests of the
apron or the linen.
Hiram's craftsmen built the temple for
Solomon, who had no craftsmen. Solomon was practically converted
to Baal for he admired the higher cult and Jessica (?)
introduced the worship of Baal to Jerusalem.
This Jehovah would
not stand for, for he above all was a "jealous" God. Hence the
line of Solomon was to be destroyed.
As a matter of fact,
Jehovah's jealousy was the destruction and dispersion of the
Jews, as Jehovah undertook to wreak vengeance by bringing in the
armies of nearby nations."
The Serpent and the
"The story of the Garden of Eden and
of Adam and Eve is but the sublimation of the story of the
struggle of the snake worshipping aborigines of the Euphrates
valley against the gods of the Elohim, who in Sumerian were
termed the 'Ilu'. [Into the garden of Babylon...] "the gods took
the proletarians of 'forerunners of the gods' on probation, to
make 'like us'."
Anyone who refused was simply driven
from the garden.
"There is a legend in Egypt that the
'Serpents' robbed the gods of their immortality. In Babylon the
legend of Napishum (may be Utnapishtim) states that the 'Serpents'
stole the ambrosia from the gods and the gods lost their
In India the god Indara was supposed to have
preserved the ambrosia from the 'snakes.' In the Garden of Eden
(Babylon) the gods (Elohim) drove the 'Snakes' (Adam and Eve and
the Serpent) out of the garden. Legend states that St. Patrick
drove the 'serpents' out of Ireland (possibly the passing of the
Druids who were Snakes)...
"The worst (or perhaps the best) happened; the gods interbred
with the 'snakes' and lost their identity in the lands that they
conquered. All the countries we have mentioned took on a
depressed condition and there was not one that withstood the
great world depression.

its own incompetence, grasped at the god of the Israelites, and
accepted him as the ruler of the universe."
cataclysms of 1500 BC destroyed the home base of
the Illi empire
that had the world for its oyster.
The survivors spread everywhere, and
everywhere established their own formula for civilization. The Stone
Age mindset Jaynes describes was a non-reflective, robotic response
to stated instructions with no comprehension of reading. What was
told to them could echo in their minds for years, which is why, for
a thousand years or so, statues could speak to them, as some
religious zealots insist they can now.
In this same mental state are
contemporary humans who hear the voice of God.
One day soon,
perhaps, humanity will realize that the voice has always been a lie,
a puppet show in which the God is never seen but everyone is forced
to believe he is real, and, if you do what he says, he will be on
But like the Jehovah of old, he'll sell

priests of Ammon, to the House of Atlas on the island of
After a discussion of how inbreeding
destroyed the master race, Stein concludes:
"Thus today, even though we
outbreed, we bear marks of deterioration. We dwell upon the
threshold of hysteria. The mental troubles that harass the
multitude are brought about largely by the universal system of
exploitation. When submerged races are not available for
exploitation, the descendants of the Illi exploit one another,
and thereby increase their mental ailments."
Church for foisting
artificial gods upon everyone.
"Who knows but that possibly the
happy days of ancient pastoral Saturn may return in our own
machine age. In the days of Saturn, exploitation was not felt.
The fields were new and unfallowed. Likewise exploitation was
not felt in America when the land was new. Conditions such as
came about in Egypt and India were the result of the
exploitation of the gods who in turn made no effort to
rationalize the superstitions of the masses.
Nor today can the
church explain away its neglect, its failure, its
procrastination in the elimination of worldwide slums, the slums
of the Troglodites. Indeed the belt of rural slums in America is
sometimes termed the Bible Belt.
"All cities have slums. Evidently slums are need for a system of
exploitation to succeed. A populace cannot be continuously
robbed and not become poor. Thus indeed the Bible may say:
poor ye have with ye always.'
Yes, indeed, the poor we have;
unless the system be changed.
And the church places emphasis
upon the individual, who is helpless, and forebears to mention
There are neither angels nor aliens,
only consensual projections of the human mind describing phenomena
beyond human comprehension, as vividly demonstrated by the creation
of the Old Testament, interpreting metaphorically astonishing events
which dazzled the natives with technologies and practices they had
never before seen.
While everyone may recognize and be thankful for the forces that
animate our universe as the actions of a power beyond our
comprehension - and that essence has been condensed into the world
'God' - the scariest thing of all to tell you is that there are no
anthropomorphic gods and no aliens who communicate to us in our own
Any other viewpoint is a projected delusion, guaranteed
insanity, almost certainly put there by somebody who wanted to make
you think they were real.
The mere attempt to create gods is only an attempt to evade
responsibility for the actions of our own species. We must fight off
these pathological dragons of the past and future and take
responsibility for our own fate.
We have to save ourselves. No god is going to save us.
As far as we
can see back in history, no god has ever attempted to do that, only
to take our money. Yet blinded by the light, we continue to believe
and be crucified.
So we die. Big deal.
The task then becomes to see how much real love
we can actually produce in a short period of time. Prayer and piety
are for fools; right action is the only answer.
The way out of our dilemma is to follow

Hatred does not cease by hatred at
