MARS OLD EMPIRE UNDERGROUND BASE

 

Pyramids structures are partly destroyed by The Domain

“According to Airl, there was a running battle between the “Old Empire” forces and The Domain until about 1235 AD, when The Domain forces finally destroyed the last of the space craft of the “Old Empire” force in this area.  The Domain Expeditionary Force lost many of its own ships in this area during that time also.

About 1,000 years later the “Old Empire” base was discovered by accident in the spring of 1914 AD.  The discovery was made when the body of the Archduke of Austria, [i] (Footnote) was “taken over” by an officer of The Domain Expeditionary Force.  This officer, who was stationed in the asteroid belt, was sent to Earth on a routine mission to gather reconnaissance.

The purpose of this “take over” was to use the body as a “disguise” through which to infiltrate human society in order to gather information about current events on Earth.  The officer, as an IS-BE, having greater power than the being inhabiting the body of the Archduke, simply “pushed” the being out and took over control of the body.

However, this officer did not realize how much the Hapsburgs were hated by feuding factions in the country, so he was caught off guard when the body of the Archduke was assassinated by a Bosnian student.  The officer, or IS-BE, was suddenly “knocked out” of the body when it was shot by the assassin.  Disoriented, the IS-BE inadvertently penetrated one of the “amnesia force screens” and was captured.

Eventually The Domain discovered that a wide area of space is monitored by an “electronic force field” [ii] (Footnote) which controls all of the IS-BEs in this end of the galaxy, including Earth.  The electronic force screen is designed to detect IS-BEs and prevent them from leaving the area.”

“The Domain officer who was “assassinated” while in the body of Archduke of Austria was, likewise, captured by the “Old Empire” force.  Because this particular officer was a high powered IS-BE, compared to most, he was taken away to a secret “Old Empire” base under the surface of the planet Mars.”

FOOTNOTES:

[i] “… the body of the Archduke of Austria…”

Franz Ferdinand (December 18, 1863 – June 28, 1914) was an Archduke of Austria-Este, Prince Imperial of Austria and Prince Royal of Hungary and Bohemia, and from 1896 until his

death, heir presumptive to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo precipitated the Austrian declaration of war. This caused countries allied with Austria-Hungary

(the Central Powers) and countries allied with Serbia (the Entente Powers) to declare war on each other, starting World War I.

In 1889, Franz Ferdinand’s life changed dramatically. His cousin Crown Prince Rudolf committed suicide at his hunting lodge in Mayerling, leaving Franz Ferdinand’s father, Archduke

Karl Ludwig, as first in line to the throne. However his father renounced his succession rights a few days after the Crown Prince’s death. Henceforth, Franz Ferdinand was groomed to succeed.

On June 28, 1914, at approximately 11:15 am, Franz Ferdinand and his wife were killed in Sarajevo, the capital of the Austro-Hungarian province of Bosnia and Herzegovina, by Gavrilo Princip, a member of Young Bosnia and one of several (a few) assassins organized by The Black Hand (Црна рука/Tsrna Ruka). The event, known as the Assassination in Sarajevo, triggered World War I.

Franz and Sophie had previously been attacked when a bomb was thrown at their car. It missed them, but many civilians were injured. Franz and Sophie both insisted on going to see all those injured at the hospital. As a result of this, Princip saw them and shot Sophie in the abdomen. Franz was shot in the jugular and was still alive when witnesses arrived to his aid, but it was too late; he died within minutes.

The assassinations, along with the arms race, nationalism, imperialism, militarism, and the alliance system all contributed to the beginning of World War I, which began less than two months after Franz Ferdinand’s death, with Austria-Hungary’s declaration of war against Serbia.”

[ii] …”force field”…

“Originally a term coined by Michael Faraday to provide an intuitive paradigm, but theoretical construct, for the behavior of electromagnetic fields, the term force field refers to the lines of force one object (the “source object”) exerts on another object or a collection of other objects. An object might be a mass particle or an electric or magnetic charge, for example. The lines do not have to be straight, in the Euclidean geometry case, but may be curved. Faraday called these theoretical connections between objects lines of force because the objects are most directly connected to the source object along this line.

Examples of force fields:

  • A local Newtonian gravitational field near Earth ground typically consists of a uniform array of vectors pointing in one direction—downwards, towards the ground; its force field is represented by the Cartesian vector , where points in a direction away from the ground, and m refers to the mass, and g refers to the acceleration due to gravity.
  • A global Gravitational field consists of a spherical array of vectors pointing towards the center of gravity. Its classical force field, in spherical coordinates, is represented by the vector, , which is just Newton’s Law of Gravity, with the radial unit vector pointing towards the origin of the sphere (center of the Earth).
  • A conservative Electric field has an electric charge (or a smeared plum pudding of electric charges) as its source object. In the case of the point charges, the force field is represented by , where is the position vector that represents the straightest line between the source charge and the other charge.
  • A static Magnetic field has a magnetic charge (a magnetic monopole or a charge distribution).
  • The electromagnetic force is given by the Lorentz force formula, which in SI units is.”

AN ASEXUAL FEMININE PRESENCE

ASEXUAL BEINGS

“…I have always felt that the alien being was not really trying to hide anything from me.  I just never got that feeling.  Her communication always seemed honest and sincere to me.  But, I suppose you can never know for sure.  I definitely feel that I shared a unique “bond” with the alien.  It was a kind of “trust” or empathy that you have with a patient, or a child.  I think this is because the alien could understand that I was really interested in “her” and had no harmful intention, nor would I allow any harm to come to her, if I could prevent it.  This was true too.

I refer to the alien as “her”.  Actually, the being was not sexual in any way, either physiologically or psychologically.  “She” did have a rather strong, feminine presence and demeanor.  However, in terms of physiology, the being was “asexual” and had no internal or external reproductive organs.  Her body was more like the body of a “doll” or “robot”.  There were no internal “organs”, as the body was not constructed of biological cells. It did have a kind of “circuit” system or electrical nervous system that ran throughout the body, but I could not understand how it worked.

In stature and appearance the body was quite short and petite.  About 40 inches tall.  The head was disproportionately large, relative to arms, legs and torso, which where thin. There were three “fingers” on each of two” hands” and “feet” which were somewhat prehensile. [i] (Footnote) The head had no operational “nose” or “mouth” or “ears”.  I understood that a space officer does not need these as space has no atmosphere to conduct sound.  Therefore, sound related sensory organs are not built into the body.  Nor does the body need to consume food, hence, the absence of a mouth.

The eyes were quite large. I was never able to determine the exact degree of visual acuity of which the eyes were capable, but I observed that her sense of sight must have been extremely acute.  I think the lenses of the eyes, which were very dark and opaque, may also have been able to detect waves or particles beyond the visual spectrum of light.  [ii]  (Footnote) I suspect that this may have included the full range of the electromagnetic spectrum,  [iii] (Footnote) or more, but I do not know this for sure.

When the being looked at me her gaze seemed to penetrate right through me, as though she had “x-ray vision”. [iv] (Footnote) I found this a little embarrassing, at first, until I realized  that she had no sexual intentions.  In fact, I don’t think she ever even had the thought that I was male or female.

It became very obvious after a short time with the being that her body did not require oxygen, food or water or any other external source of nutrition or energy.  As I learned later, this being supplied her own “energy”, which animated and operated the body.  It seemed a little bit eerie at first, but I got used to the idea.  It’s really a very, very simple body.  There is not much to it, compared to our own bodies.

Airl explained to me that it was not mechanical, like a robot, nor was it biological.  It is animated directly by her as a spiritual being. Technically, from a medical standpoint, I would say that Airl’s body could not even be called “alive”.  Her “doll” body is not a biological life form, [v] (Footnote) with cells, and so forth.

 It had a smooth skin, or covering which was gray in color.  The body was highly tolerant to changes in temperature, atmospheric conditions, and pressure.  The limbs were quite frail, without musculature. In space there is no gravity, [vi] (Footnote)so very little muscle strength is needed.  The body was used almost entirely on space craft or in low, or no-gravity environments.  Since Earth has a heavy gravity, the body was not able to walk around very well as the legs were not really suited to that purpose.  The feet and hands were quite flexible and agile however.”

FOOTNOTES

[i]  “…prehensile…”

“The word is derived from the Latin term prehendere, meaning “to grasp.”  It is the quality of an organ that has adapted for grasping or holding. Examples of prehensile body parts include the tails of New World monkeys and opossums, the trunks of elephants, the tongues of giraffes, the lips of horses and the proboscides of tapir. The hands of primates are all prehensile to varying degrees, and many species (even a few humans) have prehensile feet as well. The claws of cats are also prehensile. Many extant lizards have prehensile tails (geckos, chameleons, and a species of skink). The fossil record shows prehensile tails in lizards (Simiosauria) going back many million years to the Triassic period .

Prehensility is an evolutionary adaptation that has afforded species a great natural advantage in manipulating their environment for feeding, digging, and defense. It enables many animals, such as primates, to use tools in order to complete tasks that would otherwise be impossible without highly specialized anatomy. For example, chimpanzees have the ability to use sticks to fish for termites and grubs. However, not all prehensile organs are applied to tool use- the giraffe tongue, for instance, is instead used in feeding and self-cleaning behaviors.”

[ii] “… able to detect waves or particles beyond the visual spectrum of light.”

The visible spectrum (or sometimes called the optical spectrum) is the portion of the electromagnetic spectrum that is visible to (can be detected by) the human eye. Electromagnetic radiation in this range of wavelengths is called visible light or simply light. A typical human eye will respond to wavelengths in air from about 380 to 750 nm. The corresponding wavelengths in water and other media are reduced by a factor equal to the refractive index. In terms of frequency, this corresponds to a band in the vicinity of 400-790 terahertz. A light-adapted eye generally has its maximum sensitivity at around 555 nm (540 THz), in the green region of the optical spectrum. The spectrum does not, however, contain all the corlors that the human eyes and brain can distinguish. Brown, pink, and magenta are absent, for example, because they need a mix of multiple wavelengths, preferably shades of red.

Wavelengths visible to the eye also pass through the “optical window”, the region of the electromagnetic spectrum which passes largely unattenuated through the Earth’s atmosphere (although blue light is scattered more than red light, which is the reason the sky is blue). The response of the human eye is defined by subjective testing, but the atmospheric windows are defined by physical measurement. The “visible window” is so called because it overlaps the human visible response spectrum; the near infrared windows lie just out of human response window, and the Medium Wavelength and Long Wavelength or Far Infrared are far beyond the human response region.

The eyes of many species perceive wavelengths different from the spectrum visible to the human eye. For example, many insects, such as bees, can see light in the ultraviolet, which is useful for finding nectar in flowers. For this reason, plant species whose life cycles are linked to insect pollination may owe their reproductive success to their appearance in ultraviolet light, rather than how colorful they appear to our eyes.”

[iii] “… this may have included the full range of the electromagnetic spectrum…”

“The electromagnetic spectrum is the range of all possible electromagnetic radiation. The “electromagnetic spectrum” (usually just spectrum) of an object is the characteristic distribution of electromagnetic radiation from that object.

The electromagnetic spectrum extends from below the frequencies used for modern radio (at the long-wavelength end) through gamma radiation (at the short-wavelength end), covering wavelengths from thousands of kilometres down to a fraction the size of an atom. It’s thought that the short wavelength limit is the vicinity of the Planck length, and the long wavelength limit is the size of the universe itself, although in principle the spectrum is infinite and continuous.”

[iv] “… her gaze seemed to penetrate right through me, as though she had “x-ray vision”. 

“In fictional stories, X-ray vision has generally been portrayed as the ability to see through layers of objects at the discretion of the holder of this superpower. People often pretend to have this ability through the use of X-ray glasses, which are a special type of “joke-around” or prank-gag toys with the secret of its “x-ray properties” being unknown. The goal is usually to see through clothing, usually to determine if someone is carrying a concealed weapon, but sometimes for purpose of seeing a person’s private parts. In the non-fictional realm, X-rays have many practical uses in the fields of science and medicine. While there are devices currently extant which can “see” through clothing (using terahertz waves), most are quite bulky. However, there are night vision equipped video cameras that can be modified to see through clothing at a frequency just below visible light.”

[v] …”Technically, from a medical standpoint, I would say that Airl’s body could not even be called “alive”. ”

“The word “organism” may broadly be defined as an assembly of molecules that function as a more or less stable whole and has the properties of life. However, many sources, lexical and scientific, add conditions that are problematic to defining the word.

The Oxford English Dictionary defines an organism as “[an] individual animal, plant, or single-celled life form”. This definition problematically excludes non-animal and plant multi-cellular life forms such as some fungi and protista. Less controversially, perhaps, it excludes viruses and theoretically-possible man-made non-organic life forms.

Chambers Online Reference provides a much broader definition: “any living structure, such as a plant, animal, fungus or bacterium, capable of growth and reproduction”. The definition “any life form capable of independent reproduction, organic or otherwise” would encompass all cellular life, as well as the possibility of synthetic life capable of independent reproduction, but would exclude viruses, which are dependent on the biochemical machinery of a host cell for reproduction. Some may use a definition that would also include viruses.”

[vi] “…in space there is not gravity…”

“The terms gravitation and gravity are mostly interchangeable in everyday use, but in scientific usage a distinction may be made. “Gravitation” is a general term describing the attractive influence that all objects with mass exert on each other, while “gravity” specifically refers to a force that is supposed in some theories (such as Newton’s) to be the cause of this attraction. By contrast, in general relativity gravitation is due to space-time curvatures that cause inertially moving objects to accelerate towards each other.

Isaac Newton’s theory of universal gravitation is a physical law describing the gravitational attraction between bodies with mass. It is a part of classical mechanics and was first formulated in Newton’s work Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica, published in 1687. In modern language it states the following:

Every point mass attracts every other point mass by a force pointing along the line intersecting both points. The force is proportional to the product of the two masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the point masses:

where:

  • F is the magnitude of the gravitational force between the two point masses,
  • G is the gravitational constant,
  • m1 is the mass of the first point mass,
  • m2 is the mass of the second point mass,
  • r is the distance between the two point masses.”

OANNES, NEPHILIM & ANNUNAKI, OH MY!

“559 BCE —

The Commanding Officer of The Domain Battalion who was lost in 5,965 BCE was detected and located by a search party sent to Earth from The Domain Expeditionary Force. He was incarnated as Cyrus II of Persia during this time. [i] (Footnote)

A unique system of organization was used by Cyrus II [ii] (Footnote) and the members of that Battalion who followed him from India through his progression of human lives on Earth.  In part, it enabled them to build the largest empire in the history of the Earth to that date.

The Domain Search Party who located him traveled around the Earth searching for the lost Battalion for several thousand years.  The party consisted of 900 officers of The Domain, divided into teams of 300 each.  One team searched the land, another team search the oceans and the third team searched the space surrounding Earth.  There are many reports made in various human civilizations concerning their activities, which humans did not understand, of course.

The Domain Search Party devised a wide variety of electronic detection devices needed to track the electronic signature or wavelength of each of the missing members of the Battalion.  Some were used in space, others on land, and special devices were invented to detect IS-BEs under water.

One of these electronic detection devices is referred to as a “tree of life”. [iii] (Footnote)

The device is literally a tool designed to detect the presence of life, which is an IS-BE.  This was a large electronic screen generator designed to permeate wide areas.  To the ancient humans on Earth it resembled a sort of tree, since is consists of an interwoven lattice of electronic field generators and receivers.  The electronic field detects the presence of IS-BEs, whether the IS-BE is occupying a body, or if they are outside a body.

A portable version of this detection device was carried by each of the members of The Domain Search Party.  Stone carvings in Sumeria show winged beings using pinecone-shaped instruments to scan the bodies of human beings.  They are also shown carrying the power unit for the scanner which are depicted as stylized baskets or water buckets, being carried by eagle-headed, winged beings. [iv] (Footnote)

Members of the aerial unit of The Domain Search Party, led by Ahura Mazda, were often called  “winged gods” in human interpretations. Throughout the Persian civilization there are a great many stone relief carvings that depict winged space craft, that they called a “faravahar”. [v] (Footnote)

Members of the Aquatic Unit of The Domain Search Party were called “Oannes” by local humans. [vi] (Footnote) Stone carvings of the so-called Oannes are shown wearing silver diving suits.  They lived in the sea and appeared to the human population to be men dressed to look like fish.  Some members of the lost Battalion were found in the oceans inhabiting the bodies of dolphins or whales. [vii] (Footnote)

On land, The Domain Search Party members were referred to as “Annunaki” [viii] (Footnote) by the Sumerians, and “Nephilim”, in the Bible.  Of course, their true mission and activities were never disclosed to homo sapiens.  Their activities have been purposefully disguised.  Therefore, the human stories and legends about the Annunaki, and the other members of The Domain Search Party have not been understood and were badly misinterpreted.

In the absence of complete and accurate data, anyone observing a phenomenon will assume or hypothesize explanations in an attempt to make sense of the data.  Therefore, although mythology and history may be based on factual events, they are likewise full of misunderstood and misinterpreted evaluations of the data, and embellished with assumptions, theories and hypotheses which are false.

The space unit of The Domain Expeditionary Force are shown flying in a “Winged-Disc”. [ix] (Footnote) This is an allusion to the spiritual power of the IS-BEs, as well as to the space craft used by The Domain Search Party.

The Commander of the lost Battalion, as Cyrus II, was an IS-BE who was regarded as a messiah on Earth by both the Jews, and the Muslims.  In less than 50 years he established a highly ethical, and humanitarian philosophy which pervaded all of Western Civilization.” [x] (Footnote)

FOOTNOTES:

[i] “…Cyrus II of Persia…”

Cyrus the Great (c. 590 BC or 576 — August 529 BC or 530 BC), also known as Cyrus II of Persia and Cyrus the Elder, was a Persian emperor. He was the founder of the Persian Empire under the Achaemenid dynasty. The empire expanded under his rule, eventually conquering most of Southwest Asia and much of Central Asia, from Egypt and the Hellespont in the west to the Indus River in the east, to create the largest state the world had yet seen.

During his twenty-nine year reign, Cyrus fought against some of the greatest states of his time, including the Median Empire, the Lydian Empire, and the Neo-Babylonian Empire. Cyrus did not venture into Egypt, as he himself died in battle, fighting the Massagetae along the Syr Darya in August 530 BC. He was succeeded by his son, Cambyses II, who managed to conquer Egypt during his short rule.

Beyond his nation, Cyrus left a lasting legacy on Jewish religion (through his Edict of Restoration), politics, and military strategy, as well as on both Eastern and Western civilization.

The only known example of his religious policy is his treatment of the Jews in Babylon. The Bible records that a remnant of the Jewish population returned to the Promised Land from Babylon, following an edict from Cyrus to rebuild the temple. This edict is fully reproduced in the Book of Ezra. As a result of Cyrus’ policies, the Jews honored him as a dignified and righteous king. He is the only Gentile to be designated as a messiah, a divinely-appointed king, in the Tanakh (Isaiah 45:1-6).

Some contemporary Muslim scholars have suggested that the Qur’anic figure of Dhul-Qarnayn is Cyrus the Great. This theory was proposed by Sunni scholar Abul Kalam Azad and endorsed by Shi’a scholars Allameh Tabatabaei, in his Tafsir al-Mizan and Makarem Shirazi and Sunni scholar Abul Ala Maududi.

During his reign, Cyrus maintained control over a vast region of conquered kingdoms, achieved partly through retaining and expanding Median satrapies. Cyrus’ conquests began a new era in the age of empire building, where a vast superstate, comprising many dozens of countries, races, religions, and languages, were ruled under a single administration headed by a central government.

In 1992, he was ranked #87 on Michael H. Hart‘s list of the most influential figures in history. On December 10, 2003, in her acceptance of the Nobel Peace Prize, Shirin Ebadi evoked Cyrus, saying:

“I am an Iranian, a descendant of Cyrus the Great. This emperor proclaimed at the pinnacle of power 2,500 years ago that he ‘would not reign over the people if they did not wish it.’ He promised not to force any person to change his religion and faith and guaranteed freedom for all. The Charter of Cyrus the Great should be studied in the history of human rights.”

Many of the forefathers of the United States of America sought inspiration from Cyrus the Great through works such as Cyropaedia. Thomas Jefferson, for example, had two personal copies of the book, “which was a mandatory read for statesmen alongside Machiavelli’s The Prince.”

In a recent segment of ABC’s Nightline with Ted Koppel, Ted Koppel mentioned Cyrus the Great, when he was talking about the new documentary film being made in his honor, and had this to say of him:

“Cyrus the Great is genuinely one of history’s towering figures. America’s own founders such as Thomas Jefferson were influenced by Cyrus the Great in the field of Human Rights.”

[ii] “… unique system of organization used by Cyrus II…”

“During his reign, Cyrus maintained control over a vast region of conquered kingdoms, achieved partly through retaining and expanding Median satrapies. Further organization of newly conquered territories into provinces ruled by vassal kings called satraps, was continued by Cyrus’ successor Darius the Great. Cyrus’ empire demanded only tribute and conscripts from many parts of the realm.

Cyrus was distinguished equally as a statesman and as a soldier. By pursuing a policy of generosity instead of repression, and by favoring local religions, he was able to make his newly conquered subjects into enthusiastic supporters. Due in part to the political infrastructure he created, the Achaemenid empire endured long after his demise.

The rise of Persia under Cyrus’s rule had a profound impact on the course of world history. Persian philosophy, literature and religion all played dominant roles in world events for the next millennia. Despite the Islamic conquest of Persia in the 7th century CE by the Islamic Caliphate (Arab Empire), Persia continued to exercise enormous influence in the Middle East during the Islamic Golden Age.”

[iii] “… tree of life….”

“Trees of life appear in folklore, culture and fiction, often relating to immortality. These often hold cultural and religious significance to the peoples for whom they appear.

The Sumerian (or Persian) Tree of Life was represented by a series of nodes and criss-crossing lines. It was an important religious symbol among these peoples, often attended to by Eagle Headed Gods & Priests, or the King himself.

  • In Chinese      mythology a carving of a Tree of Life depicts a phoenix and a dragon –      in Chinese mythology the dragon often represents      immortality. There is also the Taoist story of a tree that produces a      peach every three thousand years. The one who eats the fruit receives      immortality.
  • An archaeological discovery in the 1990s was      of a sacrificial pit at Sanxingdui in Sechuan, China. Dating from      about 1200 BCE, it contained 3 bronze trees, one of them 4 meters high. At the base was a dragon, and fruit      hanging from the lower branches. At the top is a strange bird-like      (phoenix) creature with claws. Also from Sechuan, from the late Han      dynasty (c 25 – 220 CE) is another tree of life. The ceramic base is guarded by a horned beast with wings. The leaves of the tree are      coins and people.
  • In Egyptian mythology, in the Ennead system of      Heliopolis, the first couple, apart from Shu & Tefnut (moisture & dryness) and Geb & Nuit (earth & sky), are Isis      & Osiris. They were said to have emerged from the acacia tree of      Saosis, which the Egyptians      considered the tree of life,      referring to it as the “tree in which life and death are      enclosed”.
  • The Egyptian’s Holy Sycamore also stood on the threshold of life      and death, connecting the two worlds.
  • In Germanic      paganism, trees played a prominent role, appearing in various aspects      of surviving texts and possibly in      the name of gods.
  • The tree of life      appears in Norse religion as Yggdrasil, the world tree, a massive tree      with extensive lore surrounding it. Perhaps related to the Yggdrasil,      accounts have survived of Germanic Tribes honouring sacred trees within      their societies.
  • In Norse      Mythology it is the      golden apples from Iðunn’s tree that provides immortality for the gods.
  • The Tree of Life is      mentioned in the Books of Genesis, in which it has the potential to grant      immortality to Adam and Eve. (However, it is not immediately obvious, nor is      it universally accepted, that the Book of Genesis account and the Book of Revelation account speak      of the same Tree of Life.)
  • A Tree of Life, in      the form of ten interconnected nodes, is an important part of the Kabbalah. As      such, it resembles the ten Sephirot.
  • The Tree of Life appears in the Book of Mormon      in a revelation to Lehi (see 1 Nephi 8:10-12). It is      symbolic of the love of God (see 1 Nephi 11:21-23), and sometimes understood as salvation and      post-mortal existence.
  • Etz Chaim, Hebrew for “Tree of      Life”, is a common term used in Judaism. The expression, found in the      Book of Proverbs, is figuratively applied to the Torah itself.
  • Among pre-Columbian Mesoamerican cultures, the      concept of “world trees” is a prevalent motif in Mesoamerican      mythical cosmologies and iconography. World trees embodied the four      cardinal directions, which represented also the fourfold nature of a central world tree, a symbolic axis mundi connecting the planes      of the Underworld and the sky with that of the terrestrial world.
  • Depictions of world trees, both in their      directional and central aspects, are found      in the art and mythological traditions of cultures such as the Maya, Aztec,      Izapan,      Mixtec,      Olmec, and others, dating to at least the      Mid/Late Formative periods of Mesoamerican chronology.
  • Directional world trees are also associated with the four Year bearers      in Mesoamerican calendars, and the directional colors and deities.
  • World trees are frequently depicted with birds      in their branches, and their roots      extending into earth or water (sometimes      atop a “water-monster”, symbolic of the underworld).
  • The central world tree has also been interpreted as a representation of the      band of the Milky Way. Fragment of a bronze helmet from Urartu, with      the “Tree of Life” depicted.
  • In ancient Armrenia around 13th to 6th century BC, the Tree of Life was a religious symbol, drawn onto the exterior walls of fortresses and carved on the armour of      warriors. The branches of the tree were equally divided on the right and      left sides of the stem, with each branch having one leaf, and one leaf on      the apex of the tree. Servants (some winged) stood on each side of the      tree with one of their hands up as if they are taking care of it. This      tree can be found on numerous Urartu artifacts, such as paintings on the      walls of the Erebuni fortress in Yerevan, Armenia.
  • The symbolism of the tree is mentioned in the 135th hymn of the      10th book of Rig-Veda, and in the 15th chapter of Bhagavad-gita (1-4).
  • In the Japanese religion of Shinto, trees were marked with sacred paper      symbolizing lightning bolts, as      trees were thought to be sacred. This was propagated by the fact that      after they passed (died), ancestors and animals were often portrayed as      branches on the tree.
  • The Book of One Thousand and One Nights has a story, ‘The Tale of Buluqiya’, in which the      hero searches for immortality and finds a paradise with jewel-encrusted      trees. Nearby is a Fountain of      Youth guarded by Al-Khidr. Unable      to defeat the guard, Buluqiya has to return empty-handed.
  • The Epic of Gilgamesh is a similar      quest for immortality. In Mesopotamian mythology, Etana searches for a ‘plant of birth’ to provide him with a son.      This has a solid provenance of antiquity, being found in cylinder seals from Akkad (2390 – 2249 BCE).
  • One of the earliest forms of ancient Greek      religion has its origins associated with tree cults.

In mystical traditions of world religions, sacred texts are read for metaphorical content concerning the relationship between states of mind and the external experience of reality. As such, the tree is a manifestation/causal symbol – the Tree of Life representing the coveted state of eternal aliveness or fulfillment, not immortality of the body or soul. In such a state, physical death (which cannot be overcome) is nevertheless a choice, and direct experience of the perfect goodness/divine reality/god is not only possible, but ever present.

Once the ego (surface consciousness) experiences shame, having been tempted to absorb or believe in duality (such as eating of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil), we are protected from living eternally in that limiting, fallen, experience by the cherubim guarding the gate of return to paradise. The cherubim are symbolic of the perfect knowledge of self or true nature, with the power of purification and return to being.

[v] “… faravahar…”

“The faravahar or farohar (transliteration varies) is one of the best-known symbols of Zoroastrianism.

The winged disc has a long history in the art and culture of the ancient Near and Middle East. Historically, the symbol is influenced by the “winged sun” hieroglyph appearing on Bronze Age royal seals. While the symbol is currently thought to represent a Fravashi (c. a guardian angel) and from which it derives its name, what it represented in the minds of those who adapted it from earlier Mesopotamian and Egyptian reliefs is unclear. Because the symbol first appears on royal inscriptions, it is also thought to represent the ‘Divine Royal Glory’ (khvarenah), or the Fravashi of the king, or represented the divine mandate that was the foundation of a king’s authority.

This relationship between the name of the symbol and the class of divine entities reflects the current belief that the symbol represents a Fravashi. However, there is no physical description of the Fravashis in the Avesta and in Avestan the entities are grammatically feminine.

Prior to the reign of Darius I, the symbol did not have a human form above the wings. In present-day Zoroastrianism, the faravahar is said to be a reminder of one’s purpose in life, which is to live in such a way that the soul progresses towards frasho-kereti, or union with Ahura Mazda.”

[vi] “…Oannes…”

“Oannes was the name given by the Babylonian writer Berossus in the 3rd century BC to a mythical being who taught mankind wisdom. Berossus describes Oannes as having the body of a fish but underneath the figure of a man. He is described as dwelling in the Persian Gulf, and rising out of the waters in the daytime and furnishing mankind instruction in writing, the arts and the various sciences.

Once thought to be based on the ancient Babylonian god Ea, it is now known that Oannes is in fact based on Uan (Adapa) – the first of the seven antediluvian sages or Abgallu (in Sumerian Ab=water, Gal=Great, Lu=man), who were sent by Ea to deliver the arts of civilization to mankind in ancient Sumerian mythology, at Eridu, the oldest city of Sumer.”

[vii] “Some members of the lost Battalion have been found in the oceans inhabiting the bodies of dolphins or whales.”

Dolphins have long played a role in human culture. Dolphins are common in Greek mythology and there are many coins from the time which feature a man or boy riding on the back of a dolphin. The Ancient Greeks treated them with welcome; a ship spotting dolphins riding in their wake was considered a good omen for a smooth voyage. Dolphins also seem to have been important to the Minoans, judging by artistic evidence from the ruined palace at Knossos. In Hindu mythology, the Ganges River Dolphin is associated with Ganga, the deity of the Ganges river.

 

Dolphins are often regarded as one of Earth’s most intelligent animals, though it is hard to say just how intelligent dolphins are, as comparisons of species’ relative intelligence are complicated by differences in sensory apparatus, response modes, and nature of cognition. Furthermore, the difficulty and expense of doing experimental work with large aquatics means that some tests which could yield meaningful results still have not been carried out, or have been carried out with inadequate sample size and methodology. Dolphin behavior has been studied extensively by humans however, both in captivity and in the wild.”

[viii] “… The Anunnaki…”

“The Anunnaki are a group of Sumerian and Akkadian deities related to, and in some cases overlapping with, the Annuna (the ‘Fifty Great Gods’) and the Igigi (minor gods), meaning something to the effect of ‘those of royal blood’ or ‘princely offspring’ or “heaven and earth”.

The Annunaki appear in the Babylonian creation myth, Enuma Elish. In the late version magnifying Marduk, after the creation of mankind, Marduk divides the Anunnaki and assigns them to their proper stations, three hundred in heaven, three hundred on the earth. The Anunnaki were the High Council of the Gods, and Anu’s companions. They were distributed through the Earth and the Underworld.

[ix] “… flying on a “Winged-Disc”. “

“The winged sun is a symbol associated with divinity, royalty and power in the Ancient Near East (Egypt, Mesopotamia, Anatolia, and Persia). The symbol has also been found in the records of ancient cultures residing in various regions of South America as well as Australia.

In Ancient Egypt, the symbol is attested from the Old Kingdom (Sneferu, 26th century BC), often flanked on either side with a uraeus. In early Egyptian religion, the symbol Behedeti represented Horus of Edfu, later identified with Ra-Harachte. It is sometimes depicted on the neck of Apis, the bull of Ptah. As time passed (according to interpretation) all of the subordinated gods of Egypt were considered to be aspects of the sun god, including e.g. Khepri.

From roughly 2000 BC, the symbol spread to the Levant and to Mesopotamia. It appears in reliefs with Assyrian rulers and in Hieroglyphic Anatolian as a symbol for royalty, transcribed as literally, “his own self, the Sun”.  From ca. the 8th century BC, it appears on Hebrew seals, by now as a generic symbol for “power”. The symbol evolved into the Faravahar (the “visual aspect of Ahura Mazda”) in Zoroastrian Persia.”

[x] “… he established a high standard of ethical, and humanitarian philosophy…”

“Up to the time of the conquest of Media by Cyrus the Great, Median emperors ruled their conquered territories as provinces, through client kings and governors. One of the keys to the Achaemenid success (as with most enduring great empires) was their open attitude to the culture and religion of the conquered people, so ironically the Persian culture was the one most affected as the Great King endeavored to melt elements from all his subjects into a new imperial style.”
