Signs of the Times Article


Even though we were very careful to avoid publishing any real names in our French Connection series which was a daily blog about our experiences with certain agents of COINTELPRO, we came under such serious attack, including physical acts against us, that we decided to remove the series from the web. In fact, we were told in no uncertain terms that our lives would be a lot "healthier" if we did so, and this came from individuals with the authority to make it so.

At the point that this occurred, we actually didn't have all the details, we were just reporting observations. Apparently, it was feared that we would put 2 and 2 together and figure out what was really going on and worse, that we would make it public.

Well, we didn't figure out what was going on until AFTER we removed the series of articles and now, knowing what we do, we do, indeed, understand why there was so much effort to silence us. Evil people and evil deeds love the darkness.

And generally, psychopaths rise to positions of power.



Part 1

March 9, 2003:


Those of you who have been reading the Signs of the Times articles for the past year probably have a good idea as to WHY we made the decision to leave the United States. The simplest way to put it is this: The Cassiopaeans have indicated that the events of Nazi Germany were a "dress rehearsal" for the NWO, and have numerous times pointed out that the United States is the "Capital of Service to Self" in the world today.


They have encouraged us to do the research to determine just "who is on first" and what the "cyclic events" may be, and all of this has led to the conclusion that the United States is the reincarnation of Nazi Germany according to one sub-cycle, and that it is also the reincarnation of the Evil Empire of Atlantis in a larger cycle.

Q: (L) Okay, we have the 3600 year comet cluster cycle, the Sun twin is another cycle altogether, and then we have the wave, which is a Grand Cycle. So, we have three things causing a transition in nature?
A: Like "biorhythms."

Q: (T) And we have a triple bad day coming up! Or a good day, depending on which way you look at it.
A: Bad day if you are John D. Rockefeller, good day if you are Mahatma Ghandi.

Until our household goods arrive (they are on a ship crossing the ocean to arrive in Marseille shortly), I don’t have access to my library for quoting passages from the books that have provided the clues. But, suffice it to say that, in Fulcanelli’s "Dwellings of the Philosophers," he gives a formula for figuring out where the fire and deluge will occur - and it does not look good for the Western Hemisphere. I have put together other material in my article The Beast, and this contributes to the overall picture, and finally, as the C’s pointed out so succinctly:

Q: (AM) Is it vital to my physical existence to move to another country in the near future?
A: It is not "vital" to be in the body at all. But for those with missions in this realm, it is quite useful to preserve the physical vehicle. Thus, if one accepts the mantle of responsibility to humanity, it is not a selfish thing to seek preservation until the mission is accomplished. In the present situation, that will be enhanced outside of the USA.

The next question is, of course, why Gers? Why did we pick this particular spot? And why, after we had followed the clues and selected it, did so many wonderful miracles occur to bring us here? Those of you who have read my book Ancient Science will recall the following passage:

Orion, Arthur, Arca, Arcadia (Ark of God), Ark are all clues to the mythology of Fall and Redemption: The Once and Future King. He is the symbol of the Lost Eden and the New Jerusalem, the antediluvian world and the passage to the post-flood reality. His story has branches that reach out to embrace all the ideas of cyclical changes and all attempts to exert power over the environment as opposed to interacting with Nature.


There are two books out of all this morass, that are outstanding in terms of scholarship and thinking "out of the box." The first one is From Scythia to Camelot: A Radical Reassessment of the Legends of King Arthur, etc., by C. Scott Littleton and Linda A. Malcor, and The Keys to Avalon: The True Location of Arthur’s Kingdom Revealed, by Steve Blake and Scott Lloyd.

Scott Littleton and Linda Malcor made the serendipitous discovery of the parallels between the stories of King Arthur and the Ossetian saga of Batraz which has enabled a major leap in understanding the origins of the themes, and we hope to develop it further here. According to Littleton and Malcor, they were told by a fellow scholar, J. P. Mallory, that at the end of the Marcomannian War in the year 175 AD, the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius sent a contingent of 5,500 Sarmatian cataphracti from Pannonia to Britain. Their descendants survived as an identifiable ethnic group into the fourth century and, possibly longer. It was, as Littleton and Malcor put it, just an "interesting bit of trivia" gleaned from Tadeusz Sulimirski’s book The Sarmatians.

Sarmatians are a sub-group of Scythians, and the term "Scythian" can mean either the ancient Scythian tribes described by Herodotus, but in the larger sense, it applies to all of the Northeast Iranian steppe peoples. The Scythians of antiquity, and their cousins, the Sarmatians and Alans, were nomads of the Central Asian steppes. At the time of their greatest manifestation on the stage of history, the tribes extended from Hungary to China. These Scythians were big, blond and blue-eyed, and based on the accounts that have come down to us, and archaeological findings, their nomadic culture has sharp parallels with the most ancient occupants of Europe.

At the end of the classical period, these steppe dwellers had been driven to the edges of their homeland by the Altaic speakers, the Huns and Turks. Some migrated to Afghanistan, eastern Iran, western India, and others invaded the roman empire as either conquerors or supporting mercenaries. Many of them migrated into Britain, Italy, France, Spain and North Africa. Others retreated into Poland, European Russia and the Caucasus. The assumption has been that the Scythians, the sub-tribes of Iazyge Sarmatians, Alans, etc, vanished without a trace. But that is not, apparently, the case. It seems clear, upon reviewing the evidence, that the steppe dwellers became the aristocracy of Europe. According to Littleton and Malcor, another group of the Alani retreated into the Caucasus and survived as an ethnic group called the Ossetes, or Ossetians in what is now known as the Republic of Georgia.

The Holy Grail was the chief concern of the Alans who settled in Gaul and Spain in the fifth century. They were tall blonde and good looking, and lived a nomadic life in wagons. Their main claim to fame was their skill as horsemen. The Scythians (including the Alans) were referred to as Goths, and the one thing they all had in common was their extraordinary art. They assimilated into the territories they finally settled in, intermarrying with the Romans and other indigenous people. The name "Alan" and "Goar" are common among these groups, being passed down from generation to generation.

In addition to becoming the root stock of most of the nobility of Europe, the Alans introduced the steppe pony and the Alan hunting dog. They introduced chain mail and the customs that were later to become Norman and Breton chivalry, and above all, let it be repeated, their natural home was on the back of a horse. Alienor of Aquitaine was undoubtedly a descendant of the Alani and the Nart sagas were a natural part of her heritage, becoming the foundation for the Grail stories written and promulgated through her "courts of love" after Geoffrey of Monmouth created the "history of Arthur. [...]

Littleton and Malcor discovered the link between the stories of Arthur and the Sword in the Stone and the Sarmatian sagas of Batraz and the Narts. But their research did not end there. They point out that the earlier opinions of scholars that there may have been ancient contact between the ancestors of the Ossetians and the ancestors of the Celts does not answer all of the issues of the Scythian origin of the Grail stories. For example, it does not explain the Lancelot problem.


Many Arthurian scholars accept tacitly that Lancelot is derived from Lance a Lot, or Lanz a Lot, and refers to the spear or lance of the Celtic god Lug. Some of the present day "alternative scholars" have bizarre etymologies, including references to Lazarus, the man raised from the dead by Jesus (a function of the Cauldron of regeneration if ever there was one!), most of which are more silly than serious. As Littleton and Malcor demonstrate, Lancelot comes from "Alanus-a-Lot," or "The Alan of Lot," a reference to their lands in the Lot River Valley.

The Alans were first cousins to the Iazyges who, along with the Visigoths, Vandals, and other Germanic tribes, had settled in small enclaves in Gaul and the Iberian Peninsula in the early years of the fifth century. It seems that the Alans had brought with them a variation on the Grail stories that had evolved after the Iazyges had left the region. In short, Lancelot was also derived from the same prototype as Arthur and Batraz. He was the local variation of the original prototype, and when the stories were combined, since it was not known to the scribes that they were talking about the same individual who had been given a different name relating to some favored hero or ancestor of the particular tribe, they wrote the two individuals into the same story, and rearranged the relationships to accommodate this maneuver. Again and again we will see this treatment of ancient legends in action.

One of the items Littleton and Malcor discussed stuck in my mind as significant: it was that one of Lancelot’s early magic items was a mirror. This is a Sarmatian element in the story with Alanic correspondences. The Sarmatian practice of carrying mirrors is discussed by many experts, and many Sarmatians, especially the warrior women, were buried with mirrors. Littleton and Malcor note that Sulimirski argues for the Sarmatian rather than Visigothic ethnicity of an occupant of a grave based on whether or not a mirror is found there.


Sulimirski feels that many brooches found from Troyes to Carthage, including the Saone Valley, the Department of the Aube, and Albaci, Spain, that are currently identified as Gothic may actually be Alanic. If that is the case, then we cannot understand Gothic in any way at all without understanding the Sarmatian-Scythian origins in the Northeast Iranian traditions that constitute its foundation.

One of the more fascinating discoveries of this intrepid team of Grail questors was Linda Malcor’s elucidation of the fact that one group of Alanic Sarmatians allied with Alaric’s Visigoths, seems to have been responsible for a famous theft of some vessels of great value from the Basilica of St. Peter’s during the sack of Rome in 410 AD. Whether or not one of these vessels was a sacred chalice associated with the Last Supper is not definitively known, but the fact is that the pagan marauders carried the treasure to southern Gaul, to the very region traditionally associated with the Grail legends.


The treasure disappeared shortly thereafter, and it seems that the stories of these stolen "holy vessels" were combined with the stories of the Holy Cup of the Narts, the Nartamongae, which was hidden from all but the bravest and purest warriors. And so, a cup stolen from a church became the object of a sacred quest, obscuring the true history and meaning of the stories.

The genealogies given for the Grail knights, Perceval, Galahad, and Bors, are extensive, and they are all related to Lancelot - Alanus-a-Lot - a specific tribe or family of Alans from the region around the Lot river in France. In the Perlesvaus, Perceval’s father is Alain le Gros de la Vales. Littleton and Malcor present a fascinating etymology of many of the names involved in the stories, showing their connection to the Nart Sagas, and the reader is encouraged to dig more deeply into these matters there. For the moment, let us just mention that the prenomen "Pant," as in "Pantdragon," evolving to "Pendragon," in what now seems to be the most likely Scythian-Steppe culture etymology, was a word meaning "king" or "ruler over" whatever followed.


Thus, the family of "Pendragon," rather than being "sons of the dragon," become "rulers over the dragon," or Dragon Slayers. The title, Ban, Pant, and Pen was very likely an original Scythian word, carried to Britain by the Iazyges and to Gaul by the Alans. Thus, the banners of the Sarmatians emblazoned with dragons signify their function as rulers over, and slayers of dragons, in the same way that warriors collect trophies of their victories to display and advertise their prowess in a particular famous battle. [...]

At this point, we have a very good idea where Chretien got the inspiration for his story and the reader will soon see how fruitful this discovery of Littleton and Malcor will turn out to be. But what we notice is that the later writers of sequels and prequels, and alternative versions all claimed to have access to some original, secret documents, described variously as direct transcriptions from Christ himself, from an angel, from a mysterious alchemical work that came either from Britain, Spain or the Far East. We then look back at Chretien’s story, and see that his imagery has obvious and traceable elements with precedents in Celtic-Scythian traditions and we realize that what we are observing, post facto, is a huge cover-up going into operation. The astonishing variations of the later Christian and alchemical versions, written by individuals who were practiced in the art of Jewish Kabbala, seem to exactly fit the criteria for disinformation. [...]

After considering all of these issues, we still come back again to that most annoying of simple-minded questions: Why Perceval? Why was the hero named Perceval in Chretien’s original story, and was this based on some particular meaning known to those who guided his hand in the construction of the tale? As Littleton and Malcor point out, the notion that the figure of Perceval was derived from an Iranian source was discussed amongst Arthurian scholars in the early part of the 20th century. It was even suggested that Wofram’s Parzival was a free translation from the Persian stories. Unfortunately, most of this scholarship has been ignored in favor of the Celtic hypothesis advanced by Loomis. [...]

As it happens, the very name "Perceval" does connect us to these Eastern sources. The Iranian words gohr, gohar and djauhar, which form the root of the Alanic name Goar, translate into German as Perle, with, as Littleton notes, the semantic field of a jewel, gem, or stone. When we consider the etymology for Perlesvaux, we find that vaux is well established as "valley," and thus "Perles-vaux" is Perle’s valley, or "Gohar’s valley" or "Valley of the Stone-gem."


We find in this etymology the subtext of the association of Perceval with a grail that is a "stone" as opposed to a chalice or cauldron. The fifteenth century German poem Lorengel describes the grail as a "stone of victory" with which Parsifal drove back Attila and his troops a the moment they were going to destroy Christianity. In this clue, we find a curious shadow of the Ark of the Covenant which ensured military might and victory for its possessors. The most interesting fact of this matter is that it was the Alans of Orleans who, in 451 AD, actually held the line against Attila. These Alans were originally commanded by the fifth-century leader Goar. [Laura Knight-Jadczyk, 2002]

And in the name "Gers," we find the shadow of Goar. What is even more interesting is that the house that was so miraculously "found" for us by the Bogdanov Brothers - and here I should note that in Slavic languages, "Danov" means "gift of" or "gift to" - is not only in "Goar’s Valley," it is adjacent to the famous Pilgrimage route of St. James of Compostella.

The Camino de Santiago de Compostella is, since the middle ages, one of the most famous mystical-religious pilgrimages in Europe, performed to worship the tomb of the apostle James, the Major. The Camino de Santiago refers to several routes that start from France, Spain and Portugal linking cities and countries towards Santiago de Compostella in Galicia, not unlike the pilgrimage of Candelaria. Galicia has the same root as Gaul.

The better known and more frequented Camino de Santiago, begins in southwestern France on the slopes of the Pyrenees overlooking the Gulf of Biscay, in the small town of St.Jean pied de port. It crosses all the northern provinces of Spain until it reaches Santiago, for a total of 400 km, to cover on foot the tradition of carrying only a staff, a gourd, as a container for water and a knapsack. (The Fool).

The word Compostella, is akin to ’campus stellae’ (field of the star), with reference to the manifestation of light where the alleged tomb of the Saint was found. The whole Camino de Santiago, is spread with villages, and mountain passes that are named after stars or trail of light, as if the road were a stellar route, a route that leads to a special point: the field of the star, as mentioned by Fulcanelli,

"The Route of Saint James is also called the Milky Way. Greek mythology tells us that the gods followed this route to go to the palace of Zeus and the heroes as well followed it to enter Olympus. The Route of Saint James is the stellar route, accessible to the chosen ones, to the courageous, persevering and wise mortals."

We also have the term, "compost" or the appearance of a white star on the surface of the compost - the first part of the Great Work (alabastrum or white star, the vase of alabaster filled with perfume).

The Milky Way describes a stellar route that leads to the constellation of the Greater Dog and thus to the star Sirius though we think this is a blind. As it happens, the most northern constellation, right in the middle of the Milky Way, is Cassiopeia - known to the ancients as Tuatha De Danaan - the court of Don. Fulcanelli writes:

"The ’road’ is the earthly reflection of the sacred stellar way that leads to the dwelling of the gods.

"It leads the pilgrims to the sacred field of the star that represents the victorious sign of light, the return that has taken place to the divine origin represented by the star Sirius, that keeps secrets of our forgotten Origin".


This element is reproduced in the sacred iconography of Saint James who is preceded by a dog while he reaches the sacred hillock of the Star."

The Celtic and Basque populations that lived in Galicia believed that the Milky Way was the Arch of Iris of the God Lug. Lug is a dark god, black like the coat of a wolf in the night or like the feathers of a raven, a bird that brings messages. When Lug is on earth and follows the Camino de Compostela he is a wolf or a dog; when it flies along the Route of the Sky, Lug is a raven. In Europe there are at least two other great routes of ancient origin, one in France and another in England, both oriented from east to west, (the Camino de Compostela has an orientation east-west on the 42nd parallel). Both are marked by an enormous number of dolmen like structures where there are very frequent references to dogs or wolves, felt to be places of energy and power, where sacred temples were built.

Accurate studies demonstrate that the cromlechs of this road represent stars reflected on the earth from the vault of the sky; if they are grouped they reveal the precise configuration of present constellations.

On the cromlechs,

"names of the sites in the Basque language is underlined. They often help establish the astronomical significance for more than a group of stone circles or to find again the vernacular name of more than one constellation and to prove the sacred nature of these groups at the time in question."

"It has been considered that the groups of stone circles follow a series of topographical alignments linked to those of the mountains that are found in the same area. This contention does not reveal anything new as Alfred Watkins, in 1925 had already mentioned the existence of alignments between prehistorical monuments which he called ’ley lines’ "

The multidisciplinary studies of de Zabalegi indicate that it is possible to date without any doubts the stone circles in the Pyrenees to the first millennium before Christ. During a conference held in 1999 at the University of Salamanca, he presented the hypothesis that the original pilgrimage towards the west that, in later centuries, became the pilgrimage to Santiago, had its true origins and its mysterious cult in the stone circles of the Pyrenees.

When in the 9th century AD the pilgrimages to Santiago began, this route already existed and all the cities and the villages along its path already bore the names of stars, of wolf, of goose or raven. It is evident that the Pilgrimage coincides to the southern gate or the gate of the gods. These beliefs proved to be impossible to obliterate, so they were systematically Christianized by the religious orders of Cluny and Knights Templar, and then deformed.

All of this, of course, brings to mind several related remarks made by the Cassiopaeans in a number of sessions:

Q: Back in 1995 when we did a session with Roxanne present, I was re-reading this yesterday because Ark is in Dijon where this guy Moshe is, and the night of that session was when I had the vision of his face, and also when I mentioned the dream where I was getting married and this was so bizarre an idea to me at that time. Roxanne was focused on her agenda about female gods and the Elohim, and it seems that she simply shut off any ability for you to communicate to her at all. So, in re-reading this session, it seems that you were talking on a completely different level, to me alone, and that it was almost in code. She wanted to talk about the French Revolution, and you were talking about my past life in Germany... and now Ark is in France... and there was the vision... and that was when you brought up Moshe... and Moshe is in France... is there a connection?
A: Maybe.

Q: Am I correct that you were talking to me on a level that I was not even aware of at the time?
A: Could be!

Q: Can you help me out here? I would like to know about this Moshe thing. You not only brought up the name, but you brought up a lot of other things. And it seems that this was the opening of a door of moving me in a certain direction. I don’t even know how to ask about this because it is so strange...
A: Then it should be shelved.

Q: Is this one of those things you are going to avoid?
A: Alfalfa fields in Rhineland yield as of yet undreamed of treasures.

Q: Where are these alfalfa fields?
A: Near tracks well worn.

Q: Another clue, please?
A: Nope, that is enough for now!!

Q: You guys are gonna drive me crazy! Do you mean Rhineland as in Germany proper?
A: We do not mean Rhinelander, Wisconsin... Or do we?!? Who is to tell?

Q: Who?
A: The searcher, the sepulcher, the one who carries the staff in constant search for greener pastures. [...] Last clue for tonight: Look for the vibratory frequency light. Good Night.

Q: You previously talked about ’undreamed of treasure in alfalfa fields of Rhineland.’ Is this a physical, spiritual or knowledge based treasure?
A: It is all three.

Q: Who put this treasure in the alfalfa fields of Rhineland?
A: Discover.

Q: For openers, I noticed on our astronomy program that the spelling of Cassiopaea differs when referring to the remains of the supernovae as opposed to the constellation; and, in fact, the spelling of the deep sky object is very much like the spelling you use. I wonder if there is a relation to the fact that you spell it as the deep sky object is spelled?
A: Not really.

Q: Well, while we are on the subject of spelling, you DO use unusual spelling from time to time, though normally you are very good spellers. What rules direct your spelling since it is not always according to modern usage?
A: No rules, just clues, as always.

Q: Does this refer also to the way you spell ’germain’? When you say ’it is not germain,’ you spell it differently from the way someone would spell it if just saying that something is not relevant.
A: Tis French, as in clue to be.

Q: [...] Now, when the Templars were arrested, they were accused of worshipping a head, or skull, and also the god Baphomet. Were these spurious accusations designed to defame them?
A: Skull was of pure crystal.

Q: What is the definition of the god ’Baphomet,’ if they did, indeed, worship such?
A: The holder of the Trent.

Q: What is THAT?
A: Seek.

Q: What is the meaning of ’The Widow’s Son?’ The implication?
A: Stalks path of wisdom incarnate.

Q: Why is this described as a Widow’s son? This was the appellation of Perceval...
A: Perceval was knighted in the court of seven.

Q: The court of seven what?
A: Swords points signify crystal transmitter of truth beholden.

Q: What is the relationship between Perceval, Paran Sikarios, the Assassini, and Ishmael, the son of Hagar, at the well of the mirror?
A: Spear of Destiny.

Q: Are the Ishmaelis the carriers of the true bloodline, and the line of Isaac and Jacob, the Supplanter, the carriers of the monotheistic covenant, are the false line?
A: Close.

Q: Are the Ishmaelis also the carriers of the knowledge of levitation, the cult of the head or the skull...
A: Try to connect to the Templars.

Q: Did the Templars discover the secrets of the Ishmaelis, the Assassini, and is this what they carried into Europe, and then underground?
A: Buried in Galle. [...] Look for clues, and do not have expectations!

Q: (L) You once said that Perceval was ’knighted in the Court of Seven’ and that the sword’s points signify ’crystal transmitter of truth beholden.’ Do these seven sages relate to this ’Court of Seven’ that you mentioned?
A: Close.

Q: (L) When you said ’swords points signify crystal transmitter of truth beholden,’ could you elaborate on that remark?

Q: (L) What is the difference between Galle and Gaul?
A: Clue.

Q: (L) Do they both refer to France?
A: No.

Q: (L) Does Galle refer to Rhineland?
A: Close.

Q: (L) I discovered today that one of the Maltese islands, the one that is now called Gozo, was once called "Gaul." Is that getting closer?


Part 2

March 14, 2003

Before I give my impressions of France, I think it is important to understand my perspective on the United States. After all, readers who have perused my genealogy pages will be fully aware of the history of the various branches of my family in the U.S., and that if anybody is a "full-blooded American," that person is me. Among the earliest of my ancestors in America was Barent Jacobzen Kool, a Dutchman who lived in New Amsterdam - now New York - and died there in 1684, almost a hundred years before the American Revolution.

On the other side of the family, my ancestor, Richard Pearce, emigrated to America on on 5 Mar 1630, and died in Portsmouth, Rhode Island in 1677 - again, almost a hundred years before the American Revolution. My Knight ancestors were in America at about the same time and the story is that they arrived with William Penn.

On my mother’s side, the first records of the Meadows family are in the headright grants by the Governor of the Jamestown Colony. John "Meades" died in Virginia in 1658. Again on my mother’s side of the family, the progenitors of the Mizell family in the United States were three French Huguenot brothers who came to this country prior to the Revolutionary War, landing at Charleston, and settling first on the eastern shore of North Carolina. The name was then spelled Mazel and it is believed that they were related to the famous French Camisard, Abraham Mazel. On March 2, 1773, William Mizell - a descendant of one of these brothers - received a land grant in Screven County, GA, from King George III.

I mention all of these things for the simple reason that I want to make it clear that my loyalties as an American are deep - hundreds of years old. My family history stretches from "sea to shining sea," across the "amber waves of grain," and beyond the "purple mountain majesties." My ancestors came from probably every country in "Old Europe," and a truer "melting pot" American than I am simply doesn’t exist. The blood that runs in my veins was liberally given for the ideals that America stood for and no one has grieved more than I have over the death of the illusion that those ideals might still be truth for all Americans.

Yet, here I am: I have left the land of my birth to return to "Old Europe," the land of my ancestors.

When I first conceived this series of pages, I thought about titling it "Letters From Exile." There was only one problem with this idea: leaving America and moving to France did not feel like "going into exile"; it felt like "coming home."

And so we come to the point where impressions of France juxtaposed against impressions of America will serve to highlight this phenomenon.

Those of you who are regular readers of the site, especially the Signs of the Times, will have a good idea of my impressions of the United States over the past year and a half. Those of you who have read the Quantum Future School research on Secret Government activities will also have a deeper understanding of our decision to relocate outside of the U.S. The question is, of course, is there any place in the world that is not subjected to that sort of activity: mass mind control?

On September 25, 1999, the Cassiopaeans made the following comment:

A: There is much going on, yes. But it is cyclical. And will not spell it out for you. The past, if carefully and accurately charted, holds all the answers for you. How do you think the prophets do it?

At a later point in time, the following exchange occurred:

Q: ...I don’t even know if the path I am following in researching the history and the other things is even worthwhile or useful.
A: Oh, you bet it is!!!!!

The Cassiopaeans have also commented on history in the following way:

A: Many stories stemming from your history or antiquity are confused or corrupted. [...] History is a bit muddied by design.

In Fulcanelli’s Le Mystère des Cathédrales, a most mysterious chapter was inserted in the second edition which discusses an architectural monument found at Hendaye, "a small frontier town in the Basque country." Fulcanelli tells us:

…[I]t is the strangest monument of primitive millenarism, the rarest symbolical translation of chiliasm, which I have ever met. It is known that this doctrine, first accepted and then refuted by Origen, St. Denis of Alexandria and St. Jerome although it had not been condemned by the Church, was part of the esoteric tradition of the ancient hermetic philosophy. […] We must recognize that the unknown workman, who made these images, possessed real and profound knowledge of the universe.

Here we have found that the core of hermeticism, alchemy, is the doctrine of "primitive chiliasm." Note the term "primitive." In my book, Ascension: The True Quest for the Holy Grail, I have examined "primitive chiliasm" in some detail and concluded:

So what we see is that "primitive chiliasm," most likely related to Catharism, was probably closer to the real teachings of Great Teacher - around whom the Jesus Myth was shaped by the church - and that somehow this Chiliasm and Catharism is closely connected to the Grail stories - stories that emphasize "romance" and battles with dark forces, great struggles of a physical and emotional nature.


What we also can hypothesize, based on the evidence, is that these teachings included the idea of hyperdimensional realities and literal Time Loops culminating in cataclysm, with a restoration of a Para-physical earth - the Edenic State of the Golden Age - on the other side of the dissolution. This, of course, leads us to the Mother of all Grail Stories: Noah and the Ark.

The story of Noah and the Ark is the primordial story of salvation; the original Quest for the Holy Grail; - the building of the Ark; and - the Great Work of Alchemy. The Flood has other connotations such as the occlusion of the Sun being the "Dying God," sacrificed for the sins of mankind. In this sense, the Ark is the symbol of the Cosmic Hieros Gamos, or the mode of passage to the realm of the "Once and Future King," Arthur/Arca and the Shepherds of Arcadia.

In our present time, the Christian religion, (and its New Age offshoots), is the chief proponent of the many End of the World scenarios with which we are most familiar. However, they do not seem to note that the most important point is that Jesus connected the so called End of the World with the story of Noah, thereby affirming the "Primitive Chiliasm" view. In Matthew, chapter 24, verses 37 and 38:

As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of man. For just as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and being given in marriage, until the day when Noah went into the ark, and they did not know or understand until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of man.

In the story of Noah, to which Jesus has directly related the "End of Time," a man had a dream, a prophecy (who knows how God spoke to him), and he acted upon this revelation in a positive way to the saving of himself and his family.

The most important part of the story of Noah is that it was NOT the end of the world in the sense that the physical earth ceases to exist. Nor did Noah transit through the Flood to become a "light being." He built the Ark and survived the Flood and emerged into a different world. It was the End of Time, in the sense that the world before was altogether different from the world after the Flood. The Earth continued to exist, and Noah and his metaphorical family , (there were apparently quite a number of Noah’s all over the globe) , came out of the ark into a world so different that the existence of a rainbow is noted here for the first time as evidence of this extreme, fundamental change of reality.

Over and over again, for a thousand years or more, this group of people, or that one, have decided that the end is coming. They will sell all they own, move out to the woods or gather on a mountain, or huddle in jungle huts, waiting for God - or nowadays, the ETs - and when the sun finally rises on the glorious morn of redemption, well, some are so disappointed, or so determined to be right, that they will sink to any level to prove that their interpretation was the correct one. The People’s Temple, the Solar Cult, and the Heaven’s Gate group are just three cases of recent note. Such prognosticators obviously went wrong - terribly and disastrously wrong. And they were only the latest in a long line of similar groups. It is a pattern that repeats over and over again. So, again we ask, is there anything to any of it at all, and if so, what?

Carefully considered, the story of Noah is highly informative. The story does not tell us that some supernatural force prepared a place for Noah. On the contrary, Noah was told to perform certain tasks to ensure his survival as well as that of his family and certain animals. Had Noah chosen not to exert these tremendous efforts, we would never have heard of him, whoever he might have been, in whatever culture or context he existed.

Do we have any way of knowing that we are presently in the so-called "End Times?" Of course, there is no way to say so with absolute certainty. However, we do have what I call the "Noah Syndrome" to guide us.

A "syndrome" is a constellation of signs and symptoms that, taken together, characterize or indicate a particular disease or abnormal condition. "As it was in the days of Noah" can be interpreted on several levels. What, precisely, might have been meant by this clue? In Genesis, Chapter six, we read about the first "symptom".

When men began to multiply on the face of the earth, the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were fair, and they took wives of all they desired and chose.

That is certainly a loaded statement! There have been endless speculations on the identity of these "sons of God," or "Nephilim." But before we even approach that, let’s look at the first curious part of the statement is that referring to men "multiplying on the face of the earth," as though it was a singularly significant factor. "As it was in the days of Noah" seems to suggest a tremendous population growth.


Could it be at all possible that a certain population figure - as suggested by this remark - was a sort of "critical mass" that precipitated the interaction with these "sons of God?" The Cassiopaeans have told us that, at the time of the prior high civilization, the population of the world was right around the same figure we have on the planet at present: six billion. The series of remarks get even more impossible, I am sorry to say, because it goes on to declare:

There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God lived with the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

What in the world are we going to do with something like that if we claim to be rational and serious thinkers? Nevertheless, it seems to be the crux of the matter. In the many myths and legends, it was the offspring of these unions mentioned above that brought destruction on the Earth. As we have already noted, a the present time, there seems to be a veritable invasion of "otherworldly" visitors masquerading as "aliens." This was recorded in the ancient legends as invasion by "the souls of the dead." There is a curious "sexual interest" in humanity expressed by these visitors concomitant with sexual excess of mankind at large. Could the two be related? And this leads us to the next symptom:

The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was very great in the earth, and that every imagination and intention of all human thinking was only evil continually.

The passage comes back to this further on saying:

The earth was depraved and putrid in God’s sight, and the land was filled with violence (desecration, infringement, outrage, assault, and lust for power). And God looked upon the world and saw how degenerate, debased and vicious it was; for all humanity had corrupted their way upon the earth and lost their true direction.

Those are harsh words. Do they apply to us in this day and time? Fulcanelli writes:

Already, because of the multiplicity of scientific acquisitions, man cannot live without tremendous energy and endurance, in an atmosphere of hectic, feverish and unhealthy activity. He created the machine that increased his means and his power of action a hundred fold, but he has become its slave and its victim. […]


[O]n the other hand, what does he know of himself, that is, of his origin, his essence, and his destiny? […]


Carried away by his passions, his desires, and his phobias, the horizon of his hopes recedes indefinitely. It is the frantic race towards the abyss. […]

Finally, we will reveal nothing by saying that the greatest part of discoveries, first oriented towards the increase of human well-being, were rapidly diverted from their goal and specifically applied to destruction. Instruments of peace are turned into machines of war and we already know too well the dominating role science played in modern cataclysms. Such is, unfortunately, the final goal, the outcome of scientific investigation; and such is also the reason why many who pursued it with criminal intent, called divine justice upon him and finds himself bound to be condemned by it.

But, there is hope: Noah found favor in God’s eyes. He was, undoubtedly, the one who was thought to be "sick" by all of the other people around him. He didn’t fit, he was an anomaly - a man of faith and discernment and circumspection in a time and place where everything that mankind had ever thought was good had been corrupted, perverted, turned upside down and twisted out of recognition. But Noah "found grace in the eyes of the Lord." We are told in the Pauline Letter to the Hebrews that:

Prompted by faith Noah, being forewarned of God concerning events of which as yet there was no visible sign, took heed and diligently and reverently constructed and prepared an ark for the deliverance of his own family. By this he passed judgment and sentence on the world’s unbelief and became an heir and possessor of righteousness.

That’s a big one: being forewarned concerning events of which as yet there was no visible sign. And the Cassiopaeans have said:

The past, if carefully and accurately charted, holds all the answers for you. How do you think the prophets do it?

Looking at our idea of a Syndrome from another direction, acting in response to a consciousness of impending disaster might be seen as a form of mental aberration, a syndrome not common to all of humanity, but defining in very specific terms the "Noë of the Elect," and "the Chosen"-, those moved to see the End as a beginning of a new order. And, as in the time of Noah, those not afflicted with this particular cast of consciousness will react to it with derision and ridicule.

So we find that the Noah Syndrome describes both a condition of the planet in terms of its sickness-unto-death, as well as the condition of certain individuals who are sickened by the sickness. And just as an animal will sniff out the proper herb for its cure, such people begin to feel a restlessness, a questing spirit, a drive to seek out and discover the thing that will bring relief to this nagging ache in their soul. Such a quest can only be undertaken with faith that is open and adventurous; following the nose, so to say, and finally, ingesting that which is of true benefit when it is finally discovered. Looking at our constellation of symptoms, it does seem to be that we are in a time period "as it was in the days of Noah."

The comparison between the Noachian Flood and the Destruction of the fabled Atlantis is obvious. Fulcanelli writes:

Atlantis. Did this mysterious island, of which Plato left the enigmatic description, ever exist? A question difficult to solve, give the weakness of the means which science possesses to penetrate the secret of the abysses. Nevertheless, some observations seem to support the partisans of the existence of Atlantis. […]

Faith in the truthfulness of Plato’s works results in believing the reality of the periodical upheavals of which the Mosaic Flood, we said it, remains the written symbol and the sacred prototype. To those who negate what the priests of Egypt entrusted to Solon, we would only ask to explain to us what Aristotle’s master wanted to reveal by this fiction of a sinister nature. For we indeed believe that beyond doubt, Plato became the propagator of very ancient truths, and that consequently his books contain a set, a body of hidden knowledge. His Geometric Number, and Cave have their signification; why should the myth of Atlantis not have its own?

Atlantis must have undergone the same fate as the others, and the catastrophe which submerged it falls obviously into the same cause as that which buried, forty-eight centuries later, under a profound sheet of water, Egypt, the Sahara, and the countries of Northern Africa. But more favored than the land of the Atlantean, Egypt gained from a raising of the bottom of the ocean and came back to the light of day, after a certain time of immersion. For Algeria and Tunisia with their dry "chotts" covered with a thick layer of salt, the Sahara and Egypt with their soils constituted for a large part of sea sand show that the waters invaded and covered vast expanses of the African continent.


The columns of the Pharaohs’ temples bear on them undeniable traces of immersion; in the hypostyle chambers, the slabs, still extant, which form the ceilings have been raised and moved by the oscillating motion of the waves; the disappearance of the outer coating of the pyramids and in general that of the stone joins (the Colosses of Memnon who used to sing) the evident traces of corrosion by water that can be noticed on the sphinx of Giza, as well as on many other works of Egyptian statuary have no other origin.

One of the oft reiterated themes of Fulcanelli is that the "ancient Greeks"  - not the Egyptians - were the source of the Hermetic science. Fulcanelli has directed us to have "faith in the truthfulness of Plato’s works" results in believing the reality of regarding the periodical upheavals of which the Mosaic Flood remains the written symbol and the sacred prototype."

Timaeus and Critias, written by Plato some time around 360 BC are the only existing written records which specifically refer to Atlantis. The dialogues are conversations between Socrates, Hermocrates, Timaeus, and Critias. Apparently in response to a prior talk by Socrates about ideal societies, Timaeus and Critias agree to entertain Socrates with a tale that is "not a fiction but a true story."

The story is about the conflict between the ancient Athenians and the Atlanteans 9000 years before Plato’s time. Knowledge of the ancient times was apparently forgotten by the Athenians of Plato’s day, and the form the story of Atlantis took in Plato’s account was that it was conveyed to Solon by Egyptian priests. Solon passed the tale to Dropides, the great-grandfather of Critias. Critias learned of it from his grandfather also named Critias, son of Dropides. Let’s take a careful look at the main section of the story, omitting the introduction that describes Solon going to Egypt and chatting up the priests.

Thereupon one of the priests, who was of a very great age, said: O Solon, Solon, you Hellenes are never anything but children, and there is not an old man among you. Solon in return asked him what he meant. I mean to say, he replied, that in mind you are all young; there is no old opinion handed down among you by ancient tradition, nor any science which is hoary with age. And I will tell you why.

There have been, and will be again, many destructions of mankind arising out of many causes; the greatest have been brought about by the agencies of fire and water, and other lesser ones by innumerable other causes. There is a story, which even you have preserved, that once upon a time Phaeton, the son of Helios, having yoked the steeds in his father’s chariot, because he was not able to drive them in the path of his father, burnt up all that was upon the earth, and was himself destroyed by a thunderbolt.


Now this has the form of a myth, but really signifies a declination of the bodies moving in the heavens around the earth, and a great conflagration of things upon the earth, which recurs after long intervals; at such times those who live upon the mountains and in dry and lofty places are more liable to destruction than those who dwell by rivers or on the seashore. And from this calamity the Nile, who is our never-failing saviour, delivers and preserves us.

When, on the other hand, the gods purge the earth with a deluge of water, the survivors in your country are herdsmen and shepherds who dwell on the mountains, but those who, like you, live in cities are carried by the rivers into the sea. Whereas in this land, neither then nor at any other time, does the water come down from above on the fields, having always a tendency to come up from below; for which reason the traditions preserved here are the most ancient.


The fact is, that wherever the extremity of winter frost or of summer does not prevent, mankind exist, sometimes in greater, sometimes in lesser numbers. And whatever happened either in your country or in ours, or in any other region of which we are informed-if there were any actions noble or great or in any other way remarkable, they have all been written down by us of old, and are preserved in our temples.

We want to here make note of the fact that present day evidence suggests that it is not true that Egypt has never been inundated, nor that it has never experienced a rainy climate. This leads us to question whether or not this story actually came from the mouth of a true Egyptian priest with the full knowledge of the ancient cataclysms. If so, he would have known of the period of heavy rain and shallow seas in Egypt, by which the Sphinx and other monuments were eroded, and which deposited a layer of salt on the interior of the pyramids and other monuments.


And so we suggest, to reconcile this difficulty, not that the story is false - because Fulcanelli has told us to "have faith in the account of Plato" - but rather that the speaker was not aware of certain ideas specifically relating to Egypt, and that the dialogue has been put into the mouth of an Egyptian priest in order to preserve it in the context of the then current "Egyptian craze." It might even be thought that this was a deliberate exoteric "blind."

Whereas just when you and other nations are beginning to be provided with letters and the other requisites of civilized life, after the usual interval, the stream from heaven, like a pestilence, comes pouring down, and leaves only those of you who are destitute of letters and education; and so you have to begin all over again like children, and know nothing of what happened in ancient times, either among us or among yourselves. As for those genealogies of yours which you just now recounted to us, Solon, they are no better than the tales of children.

In the first place you remember a single deluge only, but there were many previous ones; in the next place, you do not know that there formerly dwelt in your land the fairest and noblest race of men which ever lived, and that you and your whole city are descended from a small seed or remnant of them which survived. And this was unknown to you, because, for many generations, the survivors of that destruction died, leaving no written word. For there was a time, Solon, before the great deluge of all, when the city which now is Athens was first in war and in every way the best governed of all cities, is said to have performed the noblest deeds and to have had the fairest constitution of any of which tradition tells, under the face of heaven.

Again, let’s interrupt the dialogue to point out that it is hardly likely that a priest of Egypt would have declared the Athenians to be "the fairest and noblest race of men," nor that they "performed the noblest deeds" and had the "fairest constitution … under the face of heaven!" Another clue that the speaker is giving us that it is NOT Egypt that is the source of this information.

Solon marveled at his words, and earnestly requested the priests to inform him exactly and in order about these former citizens. You are welcome to hear about them, Solon, said the priest, both for your own sake and for that of your city, and above all, for the sake of the goddess who is the common patron and parent and educator of both our cities. She founded your city a thousand years before ours, receiving from the Earth and Hephaestus the seed of your race, and afterwards she founded ours, of which the constitution is recorded in our sacred registers to be eight thousand years old.

Yet again, the Egyptian priest is giving greater antiquity to the Greeks than to the Egyptians! Another clue for the reader to understand that this is NOT an Egyptian story! But, that doesn’t mean that much of what is being said is not fairly accurate, even if it is being put in the mouth of an Egyptian priest to "conceal." Indeed, the worship of Isis, the goddess, is evidently the older form of worship in Egypt. But all of that came to an end, probably with the conquest of Narmer, the building of the temple to Hephaestus, the demoting of the goddess and the Moon calendar, and the instituting of the Solar worship and the solar calendar of 365 days..[1]

As touching your citizens of nine thousand years ago, I will briefly inform you of their laws and of their most famous action; the exact particulars of the whole we will hereafter go through at our leisure in the sacred registers themselves. If you compare these very laws with ours you will find that many of ours are the counterpart of yours as they were in the olden time.

Here, of course, we come to the idea that there was an ancient connection and communication between the truly "old Egyptians" and the Northern peoples. Georges Gurdjieff once remarked that Christianity was taken from Egypt, a statement which might suggest that he agreed with the Pan-Egyptian school. But no: Christianity, he hastened to explain, was not taken from the Egypt of history, but from a "far older Egypt" which is unrecorded.[2]

In the first place, there is the caste of priests, which is separated from all the others; next, there are the artificers, who ply their several crafts by themselves and do not intermix; and also there is the class of shepherds and of hunters, as well as that of husbandmen; and you will observe, too, that the warriors in Egypt are distinct from all the other classes, and are commanded by the law to devote themselves solely to military pursuits; moreover, the weapons which they carry are shields and spears, a style of equipment which the goddess taught of Asiatics first to us, as in your part of the world first to you.

But, returning to Plato, the remark that the right function of society was "first taught to the Asiatics" is most interesting. The reference to "Asiatics" in this context from an historical "Egyptian Priest" is extremely questionable because, in the many Egyptian inscriptions of historical times, the Asiatics are always referred to as "Vile." Nevertheless, even in historical times, it is indeed true that the Egyptians borrowed their military equipment and war strategies from the Asiatics, but that was a much later development than the above story would suggest.


The issue of who the "vile Asiatics" were is an ongoing debate, but it seems to devolve on such as the Hittites, Hyksos, and other Indo-European tribes that came down from the Steppes in various waves. We will discuss further on the evidence that the Steppe peoples were the worshippers of the goddess in the most ancient times, that they came from Europe to the East, and that the war god, the god of fire and the mountains, was introduced later from the South. But do note that the "arts of war" are attributed to the Egyptians first, and only second to the Greeks! A most telling remark, indeed. Fulcanelli suggests that the ancient science, first oriented towards the increase of human well-being, was rapidly diverted to be used for destruction. Instruments of peace were turned into machines of war in the South!

Then as to wisdom, do you observe how our law from the very first made a study of the whole order of things, extending even to prophecy and medicine which gives health, out of these divine elements deriving what was needful for human life, and adding every sort of knowledge which was akin to them. All this order and arrangement the goddess first imparted to you when establishing your city; and she chose the spot of earth in which you were born, because she saw that the happy temperament of the seasons in that land would produce the wisest of men.

Wherefore the goddess, who was a lover both of war and of wisdom, selected and first of all settled that spot which was the most likely to produce men likest herself. And there you dwelt, having such laws as these and still better ones, and excelled all mankind in all virtue, as became the children and disciples of the gods.

Again and again, this very strange "Egyptian" priest is saying things that completely contradict the Egyptian view that they are the most "ancient and noble race." In the above remarks, he has said that the goddess imparted to the Greeks FIRST all of the laws of health and those things needed to preserve and prolong life. The Greeks are pronounced to have been the "wisest of men," and those "most like the goddess" herself. And again "excelled all mankind in all virtue," which is not very likely to have been said by an Egyptian priest, though we will discover that it is very likely the truth.

Many great and wonderful deeds are recorded of your state in our histories. But one of them exceeds all the rest in greatness and valour. For these histories tell of a mighty power which unprovoked made an expedition against the whole of Europe and Asia, and to which your city put an end. This power came forth out of the Atlantic Ocean, for in those days the Atlantic was navigable; and there was an island situated in front of the straits which are by you called the Pillars of Heracles; the island was larger than Libya and Asia put together, and was the way to other islands, and from these you might pass to the whole of the opposite continent which surrounded the true ocean; for this sea which is within the Straits of Heracles is only a harbour, having a narrow entrance, but that other is a real sea, and the surrounding land may be most truly called a boundless continent.

Now in this island of Atlantis there was a great and wonderful empire which had rule over the whole island and several others, and over parts of the continent, and, furthermore, the men of Atlantis had subjected the parts of Libya within the columns of Heracles as far as Egypt, and of Europe as far as Tyrrhenia. This vast power, gathered into one, endeavoured to subdue at a blow our country and yours and the whole of the region within the straits; and then, Solon, your country shone forth, in the excellence of her virtue and strength, among all mankind.


She was pre-eminent in courage and military skill, and was the leader of the Hellenes. And when the rest fell off from her, being compelled to stand alone, after having undergone the very extremity of danger, she defeated and triumphed over the invaders, and preserved from slavery those who were not yet subjugated, and generously liberated all the rest of us who dwell within the pillars.

Of ALL the things the "Egyptian priest" has said, the above is the most astonishing and the most telling. Again he is giving pre-eminence to the Greeks, that they performed the most heroic deed of all times, which was to defeat the Atlantean Empire! And this is the point that is so often just simply overlooked by all the Atlantis lovers! Atlantis was the original "evil empire of the Borg!"


And what is more, in this passage, the clue is given that the ancient Egyptian civilization - the building of the pyramids and other monumental architecture upon which so much of the current Egyptian craze is based - the work of , etc - claimed to be the offshoot of Atlantis, that part of it that is so admired by the current day flock of Egypto-philes - was very likely an attempt to re-construct the EVIL EMPIRE OF ATLANTIS! In other words, the "priestly science" of the Egyptians, referred to by Fulcanelli, antedated the material so diligently studied by Schwaller and others for "clues" to alchemical secrets.

But afterwards there occurred violent earthquakes and floods; and in a single day and night of misfortune all your warlike men in a body sank into the earth, and the island of Atlantis in like manner disappeared in the depths of the sea. For which reason the sea in those parts is impassable and impenetrable, because there is a shoal of mud in the way; and this was caused by the subsidence of the island.

I have told you briefly, Socrates, what the aged Critias heard from Solon and related to us. And when you were speaking yesterday about your city and citizens, the tale which I have just been repeating to you came into my mind, and I remarked with astonishment how, by some mysterious coincidence, you agreed in almost every particular with the narrative of Solon; but I did not like to speak at the moment. For a long time had elapsed, and I had forgotten too much; I thought that I must first of all run over the narrative in my own mind, and then I would speak.

Here we find another interesting clue. Critias has just told us that Socrates was discussing the very things that are included in this story - that everything Socrates had been saying the previous day "agreed in almost every particular with the narrative of Solon." Apparently, this story had been handed down via another line of transmission.

And so I readily assented to your request yesterday, considering that in all such cases the chief difficulty is to find a tale suitable to our purpose, and that with such a tale we should be fairly well provided. And therefore, as Hermocrates has told you, on my way home yesterday I at once communicated the tale to my companions as I remembered it; and after I left them, during the night by thinking I recovered nearly the whole it. Truly, as is often said, the lessons of our childhood make wonderful impression on our memories; for I am not sure that I could remember all the discourse of yesterday, but I should be much surprised if I forgot any of these things which I have heard very long ago. I listened at the time with childlike interest to the old man’s narrative; he was very ready to teach me, and I asked him again and again to repeat his words, so that like an indelible picture they were branded into my mind.

As soon as the day broke, I rehearsed them as he spoke them to my companions, that they, as well as myself, might have something to say. And now, Socrates, to make an end my preface, I am ready to tell you the whole tale. I will give you not only the general heads, but the particulars, as they were told to me.

The city and citizens, which you yesterday described to us in fiction, we will now transfer to the world of reality. It shall be the ancient city of Athens, and we will suppose that the citizens whom you imagined, were our veritable ancestors, of whom the priest spoke; they will perfectly harmonize, and there will be no inconsistency in saying that the citizens of your republic are these ancient Athenians. Let us divide the subject among us, and all endeavour according to our ability gracefully to execute the task which you have imposed upon us. Consider then, Socrates, if this narrative is suited to the purpose, or whether we should seek for some other instead.[3]


And we come to the final understanding that conveys to us the secret of the story of Atlantis: that it did not actually come from an Egyptian priest, but that this was a story that was created to "execute the task which you [Socrates] have imposed upon us," which was to veil in fiction something that was Truth. Does this mean that they were "making it up?" No, indeed. It means that they were attempting to find a vehicle for the history that would insure its preservation.

Thus we come to the conclusion that it is entirely possible that the story was not given to Solon by an Egyptian priest, but that it was attributed to same because, at the time everyone was convinced of the antiquity of the Egyptians. It was as much a fad then as now, due to the presence of the pyramids and other monuments.


If Fulcanelli is correct about the cult of the dead of the Egyptians being a distortion of this knowledge, and this cult was encouraged, supported, and furthered by the Egyptian elite of the past several thousand years, then it is almost a certainty that they were not in possession of the knowledge that was conveyed to Solon. But it seems apparent that he did, indeed, get it from somewhere. And he tells us that the Greeks were instructed by the Arabs which certainly makes us wonder who were the original "Arabs."

Well, we certainly have a clue:

Q: According to the Bible, Abraham was the father of Ishmael who was the ’father of the Arabs’ according to the Hebrew texts. Hermes was supposed to have been the father of Arabus who was also called the ’father of the Arabs.’ This Arabus was the legendary father of Cassiopeia, which is almost a parallel development with just some name changes. It seems as though Arabus and Ishmael were comparatively the same in type and function and there are further comparisons to be made. But, the essential thing here is that Cassiopeia would then have been a granddaughter of Hermes and daughter of Ishmael, and we have talked before about the bloodline of the Ishmaelis as the true ’royal line.’ Can you comment on this?
A: You are doing well in your analysis. [...]

Q: Is the story of David [in the Bible] a gloss of the Perseus legend?
A: Yes. More than that though.

Q: Okay, can you tell me what it is more than that?
A: A Tale of 4th Density.

Q: So it’s interactive in the sense of groups, not individuals?
A: Yes.

Q: Where is the Ethiopia of the Cassiopeia story? Where it is today?
A: 4th Density.

Q: Okay, what people did it refer to, in a larger group sense, if it was an archetypal expression?
A: Gaul.

Now, let’s look again at what Plato has written, keeping in mind the fact that Fulcanelli has described a deep connection between the Greeks and France:

Now in this island of Atlantis there was a great and wonderful empire which had rule over the whole island and several others, and over parts of the continent, and, furthermore, the men of Atlantis had subjected the parts of Libya within the columns of Heracles as far as Egypt, and of Europe as far as Tyrrhenia. This vast power, gathered into one, endeavoured to subdue at a blow our country and yours and the whole of the region within the straits; and then, Solon, your country shone forth, in the excellence of her virtue and strength, among all mankind.

She was pre-eminent in courage and military skill, and was the leader of the Hellenes. And when the rest fell off from her, being compelled to stand alone, after having undergone the very extremity of danger, she defeated and triumphed over the invaders, and preserved from slavery those who were not yet subjugated, and generously liberated all the rest of us who dwell within the pillars.

Fulcanelli in the first pages of his book Dwellings of the Philosophers, tells us in his first sentences that there is a gross misconception about the Middle Ages common among scholars and laymen, produced by a written history that is not supported by the evidence. History tells us that the Dark Ages were a time of invasions, wars, famines, epidemics, and a host of disruptions to life and culture; yet the very same period was the time of the building of great cathedrals, monuments, houses, cities, and so forth; none of which bear the marks of such scourges. He then goes on to point out that art is entirely reflective of a culture, and generally only thrives during times of peace.


The Gothic buildings - cathedrals and others - all undeniably reflect peace, serenity, prosperity, and a flourishing, happy society. The statuary, obviously having used live models, show us plump, well-fed people, with jovial expressions, fond of good living and satire. Even gargoyles are more comical than frightening, and the suffering Christs are generally depicted as "resting" rather than actually in torment. As Fulcanelli points out, if that period of history had been as "dark" as it is depicted, had the people been suffering and moaning in misery of human affliction, the art would have depicted it. But it didn’t. Something is, indeed, inexplicably amiss here. And, as Fulcanelli points out: is easy to fabricate texts and documents out of nothing.[…] Falsification and counterfeiting are as old as the hills, and history, which abhors chronological vacuums, sometimes had to call [counterfeiters] to the rescue.

In the seventeenth century, a Jesuit Father Jean Hardouin uncovered a fraud wherein locals were creating ancient Greek and Roman coins and medals and burying them about the countryside to "fill in the gaps" of history as well as make money by selling such "finds." In 1639, a certain Jacques de Bie published The Families of France, Illustrated by the Monuments of Ancient and Modern Medals, which, according to Anatole de Montaiglon contained more "invented medals than real ones." Fulcanelli goes on to cite more instances in which the possibility - probability - that our history has been largely fabricated looms as an ever growing specter of confusion. We will discover, as we go along, that this problem of falsification of history is not just an idea, but a FACT.

As it happens, there are some eminent experts in the present day who have smelled the rat and who propose the exact same thing that Fulcanelli has suggested. When we investigate the matter, we discover that the chronology of ancient and medieval history in its present form was created and completed to a considerable extent in a series of works during the 16th and 18th centuries, beginning with J. Scaliger (1540-1609), the "founder of modern chronological science." and D. Petavius (1583-1652).


Chronology is what tells us how much time has elapsed between some historical event and the present. To determine real chronology, one must be able to translate the data in the ancient documents into the terminology and units of modern time reckoning. Many historical conclusions and interpretations depend upon what dates we ascribe to the events in a given ancient document.

The accepted traditional chronology of ancient and medieval world rests on a foundation of quicksand. For example, between different versions of the dating of such important event as the foundation of Rome, there exists a divergence of 500 years. What is more, "falsification" of numbers was carried out down even to contemporary history. Alexander Polyhistor took the first steps towards filling up the five hundred years, which were wanting to bring the destruction of Troy and the origin of Rome into the chronological connection. But, was he helping, or further confusing the matter? As it happens, according to another chronology, Troy had fallen at the same time as the foundation of Rome, and not 500 years before it.

Isaac Newton, as we will see, devoted many years to historical and chronological studies. He made up his own tables that came to be the generally accepted timeline. A lot of people are not aware that some of the important events of Greek history were arbitrarily moved forward by him as much as 300 years, and those of the Egyptian were moved forward up to a thousand years. Naturally, penetrating minds were able to discern the problems and as early as the sixteenth century. A.D., Professor of Salamanca University de Arcilla published two papers in which he stated that the whole of history earlier than the 4th c. AD, had been falsified.

In more modern times, the first serious attempt to systematize the considerable critical material, and to analyze historical paradoxes and duplicates from the standpoint of natural science was undertaken by a Russian scientist and academician, N. A. Morozov (1854-1946). In 1994, A. T. Fomenko, a Russian Mathematician, published Empirico-statistical analysis of narrative materials and its applications to historical dating. The abstract of this book says:

These two volumes represent a major, unique work which is the first of its kind published in the English language. A comprehensive set of new statistical technique is presented for the analysis of historical and chronological data. These technique constitute a new important trend in applied statistics. The first volume concentrates mainly of the development of mathematical statistical tools and their applications to astronomical data: dating of ancient eclipses, dating of Almagest etc. The problems of correct dating for ancient and medieval events are discussed. The second volume concentrates on the analysis of ancient and medieval chronicles and records (such as Egyptian, Byzantine, Roman, Greek, Babylonian, European etc.).


An astonishing wealth of historical data is considered. The conclusions which are drawn concerning the accepted chronological dating of events in ancient history will certainly provoke controversy and serious debate. The author suggested a new chronology which is dramatically different from the traditional one. For example, new short chronology place ancient Rome and Greece in medieval epoch. The main result is as follows: the modern "textbook" of traditional ancient and medieval history is the fibred chronicle derived by gluing together the four practically identical replicas A,B,C,D of the shorter chronicle A.


Three chronicle B,C,D are obtained from A by shifting it as a rigid block backwards by 333, 1053, and 1778 years (approximately). In other words, the entire "modern textbook" can be completely restored from its lesser part A wholly placed to the right of A.D.960, i.e. each epoch of history, placed today to the left (below) of A.D.960, is a reflection of a certain real historical events from the interval A.D.960 - A.D.1600. For example "the ancient Greece" is dated in 10-14 centuries A.D. The book provides the necessary background and material for intelligent participation in such debates.


If Fomenko is correct, the ancient histories of Byzantium were carried to Europe, and because many of the local legends also arrived from that region of the world, i.e. the Nart sagas, it was assumed that this was the real history of Britain and even Europe. In short, Fomenko’s idea connects events from the time of Jesus, and the area of the world in which Jesus was said to live, to the general area of the world from which the Nart Sagas originated, the roots of the Grail Legends, and they may all be a mythicized history, and historicized myth of actual seed events of real history that has been, until the present time, incompletely understood.

Again and again we are finding the threads leading off to the east - to Russia, Siberia - which happens to be the land of Colchis. ’Apollodorus tells us about Hercules:

When the labours had been performed in eight years and a month, Eurystheus ordered Hercules, as an eleventh labour, to fetch golden apples from the Hesperides, for he did not acknowledge the labour of the cattle of Augeas nor that of the hydra. These apples were not, as some have said, in Libya, but on Atlas among the Hyperboreans. They were presented (by Earth) to Zeus after his marriage with Hera, and guarded by an immortal dragon with a hundred heads, offspring of Typhon and Echidna, which spoke with many and divers sorts of voices. With it the Hesperides also were on guard, to wit, Aegle, Erythia, Hesperia, and Arethusa. […]


Now Prometheus had told Hercules not to go himself after the apples but to send Atlas, first relieving him of the burden of the sphere; so when he was come to Atlas in the land of the Hyperboreans, he took the advice and relieved Atlas. But when Atlas had received three apples from the Hesperides, he came to Hercules, and not wishing to support the sphere, he said that he would himself carry the apples to Eurystheus, and bade Hercules hold up the sky in his stead. Hercules promised to do so, but succeeded by craft in putting it on Atlas instead.


For at the advice of Prometheus he begged Atlas to hold up the sky till he should, put a pad on his head. When Atlas heard that, he laid the apples down on the ground and took the sphere from Hercules. And so Hercules picked up the apples and departed. But some say that he did not get them from Atlas, but that he plucked the apples himself after killing the guardian snake. And having brought the apples he gave them to Eurystheus. But he, on receiving them, bestowed them on Hercules, from whom Athena got them and conveyed them back again; for it was not lawful that they should be laid down anywhere.’

It is extremely interesting to note the similarity between the hydra - a hundred headed snake - and the gorgon slain by Perseus. We also note the connections to the Hyperboreans, and the fact that the Golden Apples were given to Athena, who was also gifted with the head of Medusa by Perseus. Another interesting note is that the area where these apples were located was the Hesperides. We also want to note that the same general story is told about the Quest for the Golden Fleece:

No sooner did Pelias hear that than he bade him go in quest of the fleece. Now it was at Colchis in a grove of Ares, hanging on an oak and guarded by a sleepless dragon.’

Medea guided Jason to the fleece by night and used her drugs to send the guardian dragon to sleep, and then, carrying the fleece with her, made her way back to the Argos with Jason.’

Curiously, the name "Pelleas" occurs in a number of Grail Stories. The important thing is, however, that we have a sneaking suspicion that this Colchis is also the Hesperides. We also wonder about the possible relationship between "Arcadia" and Colchis. If the ancient "Athenians" of Plato’s tale were not actually from Athens as we know it, then it is also possible that a far more ancient "Arcadia" existed as well.


[Laura Knight-Jadczyk, Ancient Science, 2002]

And that brings us, of course, back to the Nart Sagas described by Littleton and Malcor as the root of the Grail legends, that the Sarmatians are the "Dragon Slayers," and the root stock of France. The details of all these connections and discoveries will be presented in a forthcoming book. For the moment, it is important to understand the cyclical nature of time, the "replay" of the Atlantean/Noachian deluge saga, and just who is who here.

It is glaringly obvious from the description recorded in Plato’s story that the United States is the reincarnation of Atlantis - the "evil empire" - or the replay, if you prefer that term. Following the connections demonstrates that France is "ancient Athens" in the story, the country that,

"shone forth, in the excellence of her virtue and strength, among all mankind. She was pre-eminent in courage and military skill, and was the leader of the Hellenes. And when the rest fell off from her, being compelled to stand alone, after having undergone the very extremity of danger, she defeated and triumphed over the invaders, and preserved from slavery those who were not yet subjugated, and generously liberated all the rest of us who dwell within the pillars."

And now, the reader will better understand the macrocosmic view of my Impressions of France as I write them. It is the home of the future of humanity, the hope of the New World to come. Tearing the veil away, the actual "art cot" or Art of Light, is the Quest for the Holy Grail, the building of the Ark, through which the human being may "pass through the conflagration" at the End of Time. Fulcanelli tells us:

The obelisk of Dommartin-sur-Tigeaus is the tangible, expressive image, absolutely conforming to tradition, of the double terrestrial calamity, of the conflagration and of the flood, on the terrible Judgment Day. […] This monument seems to be erected on the plane of the ancient hexagram; a figure composed of the water and fire triangles, which is used as the signature of the physical Great Work and of its result, the Philosopher’s Stone. […]

Two sides of the pyramid are exactly aligned on the highway’s North-South axis. On the Southern side, one can notice the image of an old oak sculpted in bas-relief. […] If we question the oak of stone, it can answer us that times are near, because it is its figurative foreboding. It is the revealing symbol of our times of decadence and perversion; and the initiate to whom we owe the obelisk, carefully chose the oak tree as a frontispiece for his work, in the fashion of a cabalistic prologue, in charge of pinpointing in time the ill-omened period of the end of the world. The characteristics of this period, which is ours, are clearly indicated in the twenty-fourth chapter of the Gospel of St. Matthew. […]

These frequent geological tremors, accompanied with unexplained climatic changes […] are symbolically expressed by the oak. This word, whose French pronunciation ("chêne") is lisped, phonetically corresponds to the Greek word (Khen), and designates the common goose. The old oak tree, because of this fact, takes on the same value as the expression the old goose and the secret meaning of the old law, heralding the return of the Ancient Covenant or the Reign of God […] Saturnalia, Paradise and of the Golden Age.

In the time of the Golden Age, the regenerated man knows no religion. […] He respects, honors and venerated God in this radiating globe which is the heart and brain of Nature and the dispenser of earthly goods. […] In the midst of the radiating celestial body, under the pure sky of a rejuvenated earth, man admires the divine works, without outer manifestations, without rites, without veils. […]

The Golden Age, a solar age par excellence, has for cyclic symbol the very image of the celestial body, the hieroglyph that has always been used by the old alchemists, in order to express the metallic gold or mineral sun. On the spiritual level, the Golden Age is personified by the evangelist Saint-Luke. The Greek (Luchas, from (Luchnos), light, lamp, torch, (lux, lucis in Latin), brings us to consider the Gospel according to Luke, as the Gospel according to the Light. It is the Solar Gospel esoterically conveying the journey of the celestial body and that of its rays, back to their primary state of splendor. It marks the dawn of a new era, the exaltation of the radiating power over the regenerated earth and the return of the yearly and cyclical orb. […]


[W]e consider accurate all the descriptions that have been made of the earthly Paradise, or, if you prefer, of the golden age; but we are not going to dwell on the various theses aimed at proving that the refuge, inhabited by our ancestors, was located in one well defined country. If we deliberately don’t specify where it was located, it is only because, during each cyclic revolution, there is only one thin belt left, that is respected and which remains fit for habitation on its earthly soil. However we emphasize it, the zone of salvation and mercifulness is located sometimes in the Northern Hemisphere, in the beginning of the cycle, sometimes n the Southern hemisphere at the beginning of the next cycle.

And in the mysterious Hendaye chapter of Le Mystere des Cathedrales, Fulcanelli further says:

[W]e learn that a country exists, where death cannot reach man at the terrible time of the double cataclysm. As for the geographical location of this promised land, from which the elite will take part in the return of the golden age, it is up to us to find it. For the elite, the children of Elias, will be saved according to the word of Scripture, because their profound faith, their untiring perseverance in effort, will have earned for them the right to be promoted to the rank of disciples of the Christ-Light. They will bear his sign and will receive from him the mission of renewing for regenerated humanity the chain of tradition of the humanity which has disappeared. […] For it is by fire and in fire that our hemisphere will soon be tried. […]

The age of iron has no other seal than that of Death. Its hieroglyph is the skeleton, bearing the attributes of Saturn: the empty hour-glass, symbol of time run out, and the scythe, reproduced in the figure seven, which is the number of transformation, of destruction, of annihilation. The Gospel of this fatal age is the one written under the inspiration of St. Matthew. […] Matthaeus […] means science. This word has given study, knowledge, to learn. It is the Gospel according to Science, the last of all, but for us the first, because it teaches us that, save for a small number of the elite, we must all perish. For this reason the angel was made the attribute of St. Matthew, because science, which alone is capable of penetrating the mystery of things, of beings and their destiny, can give man wings to raise him to knowledge of the highest truths and finally to God.

Over and over again we have seen our tracks of the Grail/Ark lead us to Russia, to Central Asia, to the Scythians, the Tribe of Dan. It is interesting to note at this point a prophecy of Edgar Cayce about Russia and China. In 1944, he prophesied that China would one day be "the cradle of Christianity as applied in the lives of men." Through Russia, he said

"comes the hope of the world. Not in respect to what is sometimes termed Communism or Bolshevism - no! But freedom - freedom! That each man will live for his fellow man. The principle has been born there. It will take years for it to be crystallized; yet out of Russia comes again the hope of the world."

In reference to this, and the many other "Russian references," Geoffrey Ashe writes in The Ancient Wisdom:

From Greece to the Indus Valley, we find people holding Ursa Major in reverence almost as far back as we can document… In various ways they introduce the Bear into beliefs that connect the centers Above and Below. […]

We have enough to reconstruct a common myth that might underlie all primary versions of the seven-mystique […] from which the rest follow. In the far north there is a high and paradisal place, peopled by an assembly of beings of superhuman longevity and wisdom. They have associates and contacts at lower levels. […]

[B]iblical editing never quite censored out the northern mountain and Zion’s mystical identity with it. […] The prophet’s imagery is baffling, and rabbis in later ages claimed that it concealed a great secret, an occult wisdom. Only the wisest and holiest could expound the Work of the Chariot. Robert Graves has maintained that the God of the Chariot actually is Apollo.[…]

Is there reason to believe that the northern Something was literally there […] that a cosmic system was actually taught by the Rishis on a real Meru, and carried south and west along several routes? […]

The inquiry has […] led to what no one ever identified before - an arguable locale, to which the search can be narrowed down. [W]e are justified in reverting to Guthrie’s theory of Apollo. If this god was brought to Asia Minor and thence to Greece from a Siberian birthplace, a real Land of the Hyperboreans, then he implies a northern Something which actually was there: a center of an influential species of shamanism, with Hyperborean Apollo as one of its gods. […]

If Apollo did make this journey from Siberia, the bear-goddess Artemis was probably paired with him at an early stage. The story of Apollo and his twin sister Artemis is interesting and connect us in an odd way back to Orion. Some sources say that Artemis fell in love with Orion and was going to give up her avowed virginity to marry him. Apollo, her brother, did not approve and tricked Artemis into shooting Orion who was swimming in the sea. In her grief, Artemis placed Orion in the sky to honor him.


Other sources say that Orion had raped one of Artemis’ female followers, and so Artemis killed him as punishment. She sent a scorpion after him, which stung him and poisoned him. When Orion and the scorpion were placed among the stars, they were given places opposite each other, so that Orion would be out of danger. When Scorpius is just rising, chasing after Orion, the hunter is just starting to disappear behind the western horizon.

The veneration of the bear is ancient and its most archaic exposition is in the famous French caves - art of almost unspeakable antiquity. The symbolism is deep here. A bear is supposedly born as a tiny shapeless lump and "licked into shape. His winter sleep symbolizes death-and-rebirth - or, more significantly, "survival in an Ark". The bear stands on his legs and is an omnivore, like humans.

The point is that the bear, Arca, Arthur, takes us back to his origins in Western Europe from whence he traveled to Siberia, and finally around in a circle of the Mediterranean, to bring us back to France. Not only does Time run in loops, so do peoples.

The Siberian shamans tell that in former ages all men had access to the gods, whereas now, only shamans have it. Shamanism presents itself as the remnant of an Ancient Wisdom teaching which once flourished across the Northern Hemisphere, originating in France.

The main feature of the Shaman’s universe is the cosmic center, an axis connecting earth with both heaven and hell. It is often represented as a tree, a ladder, or a pole. The shaman can utilize this tree to travel upward to commune with the gods, or downward to battle demons. Numbers are important: there are a fixed number of steps, or celestial stages. The cosmic tree can also be represented as a mountain with seven stories. The mountain is made of gold and the name "Altai" itself actually means "gold." And we note that the Scythians were famous goldsmiths. What is more, even the most untrained eye can see that the art of the Scythians is identical to the art of the French caves and the art of the Celts of Europe.

It is clear that shamanism, as it is known, has declined from its original unified and coherent system. One reason for thinking so is that, while there are many local terms for a male shaman, there is only one for a female shaman. Shamanism, it seems, was formerly a woman’s activity. In one Tartar dialect, utygan, the word for a woman-shaman, also means "bear."

There is a place called Mal’ta, fifty-five miles north-west of Irkutsk, in country where the remnants of Altaic shamanism are still active. Carvings have been discovered there which include an oblong panel of mammoth ivory with designs on it. The dominant design is a spiral of dots which goes around seven times, and winds into or out of a central hole - a spiral maze. This is the oldest known heptad in the world - almost 30,000 years old.

There are claims that the Ancient Wisdom survives in Central Asia to this very day. We cannot confirm that. The only thing we do know is that, out of Russia came the work of Georges Gurdjieff mainly through the efforts of another Russian, P. D. Ouspensky. The Third Man: Boris Mouravieff, has expounded on the Fourth Way material of Gurdjieff in significant ways that relate directly to the Grail Issue. Gurdjieff and Mouravieff have called this Tradition "Esoteric Christianity." But we now suspect that what was originally taught by an obscure man in the area of the Middle East over 2000 years ago was a revival of a far more ancient Tradition - a Tradition that extends back into the mists of pre-history to a time when man interacted with his environment in an altogether different way - a Way that seems magical and mysterious to us in our present state of reduced capacities.

When we look at Ursa major, the stars that point to the Pole star, if we follow them just a bit further, we find that they direct us to Cassiopaea, at the extreme northern end of the Milky Way.

Q: Is the story of David a gloss of the Perseus legend?
A: Yes. More than that though.

Q: Okay, can you tell me what it is more than that?
A: A Tale of 4th Density.

Q: So it’s interactive in the sense of groups, not individuals?
A: Yes.

Q: Where is the Ethiopia of the Cassiopeia story? Where it is today?
A: 4th Density.

Q: Okay, what people did it refer to, in a larger group sense, if it was an archetypal expression?
A: Gaul.

Again let us note what Geoffrey Ashe discovered:

We have enough to reconstruct a common myth that might underlie all primary versions of the seven-mystique […] from which the rest follow. In the far north there is a high and paradisal place, peopled by an assembly of beings of superhuman longevity and wisdom. They have associates and contacts at lower levels. […]
