Just Another M.C.O. (Mind Control Operation)

mind_control"Although the military base of the "Old Empire" was destroyed, unfortunately, much of the vast machinery of the IS-BE force screens, the electroshock / amnesia / hypnosis machinery continues to function in other undiscovered locations right up to the present moment.  The main base or control center for this "mind control prison"  [i] (Footnote) operation has never been found. So, the influences of this base, or bases, are still in effect.
The Domain has observed that since the "Old Empire" space forces were destroyed there is no one left to actively prevent other planetary systems from bringing their own "untouchable" IS-BEs to Earth from all over this galaxy, and from other galaxies nearby.  Therefore, Earth has become a universal dumping ground for this entire region of space.
This, in part, explains the very unusual mix of races, cultures, languages, moral codes, religious and political influences among the IS-BE population on Earth.  The number and variety of heterogeneous societies on Earth are extremely unusual on a normal planet.  Most "Sun Type 12, Class 7" planets are inhabited by only one humanoid body type or race, if any.
In addition, most of the ancient civilizations of Earth, and many of the events of Earth have been heavily influenced by the hidden, hypnotic operation of the "Old Empire" base.  So far, no one has figured out exactly where and how this operation is run, or by whom because it is so heavily protected by screens and traps.
Furthermore, there has been no operation undertaken to seek out, discover and destroy the vast and ancient network of electronics machinery that create the IS-BE force screens at this end of the galaxy. Until this has been done, we are not able to prevent or interrupt the electric shock operation, hypnosis and remote thought control  [ii] (Footnote) of the "Old Empire" prison planet."

FOOTNOTES: [i] “… mind control…”Mind control (or “brainwashing”) refers to a broad range of psychological tactics able to subvert an individual’s control of his own thinking, behavior, emotions, or decisions. The concept is closely related to hypnosis, but differs in practical approach.William Sargant connected Pavlov’s findings (the Russian researcher who experimented on stimulus-response mechanism with dogs) to the ways people learned and internalized belief systems. Conditioned behavior patterns could be changed by stimulated stresses beyond a dog’s capacity for response, in essence causing a breakdown. This could also be caused by intense signals, longer than normal waiting periods, rotating positive and negative signals and changing a dog’s physical condition, as through illness. Depending on the dog’s initial personality, this could possibly cause a new belief system to be held tenaciously. Sargant also connected Pavlov’s findings to the mechanisms of brain-washing…. “Though men are not dogs, they should humbly try to remember how much they resemble dogs in their brain functions, and not boast themselves as demigods. They are gifted with religious and social apprehensions, and they are gifted with the power of reason; but all these faculties are physiologically entailed to the brain. Therefore the brain should not be abused by having forced upon it any religious or political mystique that stunts the reason, or any form of crude rationalism that stunts the religious sense.” (p. 274) Psychologist Margaret Singer describes six conditions which would create an atmosphere in which thought reform is possible. Singer states that these conditions involve no need for physical coercion or violence.

  • Keep the victim unaware of what is going on and how he is being changed a step at a time.
  • Control the victim’s social and/or physical environment; especially control the victim’s time.
  • Systematically create a sense of powerlessness in the victim. This is accomplished by getting victims away from their normal social support group for a period of time and into an environment where the majority of people are already group members.
    • The victims serve as models of the attitudes and behaviors of the group and speak an in-group language.
    • Strip victims of their main occupation (quit jobs, drop out of school) or source of income or have them turn over their income (or the majority of) to the group.
    • Once stripped of your usual support network, your confidence in your own perception erodes.
    • As your sense of powerlessness increases, your good judgment and understanding of the world are diminished. (ordinary view of reality is destabilized)
    • As group attacks your previous worldview, it causes you distress and inner confusion; yet you are not allowed to speak about this confusion or object to it — leadership suppresses questions and counters resistance.
    • This process is sped up if you are kept tired.
  • Manipulate a system of rewards, punishments and experiences in such a way as to inhibit behavior that reflects the victim’s former social identity.
    • Manipulation of experiences can be accomplished through various methods of trance induction, including leaders using such techniques as paced speaking patterns, guided imagery, chanting, long prayer sessions or lectures, and lengthy meditation sessions.
    • Your old beliefs and patterns of behavior are defined as irrelevant or evil. Leadership wants these old patterns eliminated, so the victims must suppress them.
    • Victims get positive feedback for conforming to the group’s beliefs and behaviors and negative feedback for old beliefs and behavior.
  • Manipulate a system of rewards, punishments, and experiences in order to promote learning the group’s ideology or belief system and group-approved behaviors.
    • Good behavior, demonstrating an understanding and acceptance of the group’s beliefs, and compliance are rewarded while questioning, expressing doubts or criticizing are met with disapproval, redress and possible rejection. If one expresses a question, he or she is made to feel that there is something inherently wrong with them to be questioning.
    • The only feedback victims get is from the group, they become totally dependent upon the rewards given by those who control the environment.
    • Victims must learn varying amounts of new information about the beliefs of the group and the behaviors expected by the group.
    • The more complicated and filled with contradictions the new system is and the more difficult it is to learn, the more effective the conversion process will be.
    • Esteem and affection from peers is very important to new recruits. Approval comes from having the new victim’s behaviors and thought patterns conform to the models (victims). Victims’ relationship with peers is threatened whenever they fail to learn or display new behaviors. Over time, the easy solution to the insecurity generated by the difficulties of learning the new system is to inhibit any display of doubts — new recruits simply acquiesce, affirm and act as if they do understand and accept the new ideology.
  • Put forth a closed system of logic and an authoritarian structure that permits no feedback and refuses to be modified except by leadership approval or executive order.
    • The group has a top-down, pyramid structure. The leaders must have verbal ways of never losing.
    • Victims are not allowed to question, criticize or complain — if they do, the leaders allege that the victim is defective — not the organization or the beliefs.
    • The individual is always wrong — the system, its leaders and its belief are always right.
    • Remolding of the individual victim happens in a closed system. As victims learn to modify their behavior in order to be accepted in this closed system, they change — begin to speak the language — which serves to further isolate them from their prior beliefs and behaviors.”

Social psychology tacticsA contemporary view of mind control sees it as an intensified and persistent use of well researched social psychology principles like compliance, conformity, persuasion, dissonance, reactance, framing or emotional manipulation.One of the most notable proponents of such theories is social psychologist Philip Zimbardo, former president of the American Psychological Association:“I conceive of mind control as a phenomena encompassing all the ways in which personal, social and institutional forces are exerted to induce compliance, conformity, belief, attitude, and value change in others.
“Mind control is the process by which individual or collective freedom of choice and action is compromised by agents or agencies that modify or distort perception, motivation, affect, cognition and/or behavioral outcomes. It is neither magical nor mystical, but a process that involves a set of basic social psychological principles.”In Influence, Science and Practice, social psychologist Robert Cialdini argues that mind control is possible through the covert exploitation of the unconscious rules that underlie and facilitate healthy human social interactions. He states that common social rules can be used to prey upon the unwary, and he titles them as follows:

  • “Reciprocation: The Old Give and Take…and Take”
  • “Commitment and Consistency: Hobgoblins of the Mind”
  • “Social Proof: Truths Are Us”
  • “Liking: The Friendly Thief”
  • “Authority: Directed Deference”
  • “Scarcity: The Rule of the Few”

Using these six broad categories, he offers specific examples of both mild and extreme mind control (both one on one and in groups), notes the conditions under which each social rule is most easily exploited for false ends, and offers suggestions on how to resist such methods.”Reference:  Wikipedia.org [ii] “… remote thought control…”

EDITOR’S NOTE:  If  “hypersonic sound” (see reference below) can already be used on Earth, which has been using electricity for only 150 years, imagine a technology that has been refined over millions of years, that could transmit thoughts that are precisely targeted to an individual person across millions of miles of space.

“The lunatic is in my head,” sang Pink Floyd on their landmark “Dark Side of the Moon” album released 35 years ago. “There’s someone in my head but it’s not me.”In 2008, there is a chance that the voice inside your head may be trying to sell you something. Advertisers are using a new acoustic technology to project advertising slogans directly into your head. And not everyone is happy about the aural intrusion.
In fact, the space between your ears may be the newest battleground in the conflict between privacy and technology.  The technique is called hypersonic sound and it was created by inventor Woody Norris.  Hypersonic sound (HSS) projection enables sound to be directed precisely to one individual without any spillover.In tandem with an ultrasonic emitter and a signal processor/amplifier, HSS projects a column of modulated ultrasonic frequencies into the air. The ultrasonic frequencies are inaudible by themselves, but the interaction of the frequencies with the air create sounds that can be heard by anyone inside the column. Hypersonic sound can direct sound as precisely as a laser beam can direct light.One only needs to be standing in the path of an HSS beam in order to hear the sound. However, the sensation to those hearing is that the sound is being projected from inside their skull.Pretty cool, thinks inventor Norris. Or pretty creepy if you don’t know what’s going on. It is already being done from a billboard on Prince Street in New York City.Advertising for a television show called “Paranormal State,” which airs on the Arts and Entertainment Network (A&E), has been sent through HSS to unsuspecting pedestrians who trigger a sensor as they stroll by. The sound that is emitted can be heard only by them.Science and technology writer Clive Thompson, has written about the Prince Street billboard for Wired magazine. He experienced HSS himself, writing that it felt “creepy” to hear a woman’s voice whisper, “Who’s there? Who’s there?”It used to be that we could at least be guaranteed privacy in the space between our ears. That is no longer true, thanks to the invention of “in-head advertising.”

GLOBAL AMNESIA FORCE FIELD REVEALED

“Sophisticated technologies of entrapment and enslavement,  which were developed over millions of years in the “Old Empire”, have been applied to the IS-BEs on Earth with the intention to create a false facade for the prison.  These facades were installed on Earth in totality, all at once.  Every piece is a fully integrated part of the prison system.

This includes a religion of mumbo-jumbo double-speak. Every pyramid civilization uses this as part of a control mechanism to keep the population enslaved by force, by fear and by ignorance. The indecipherable muddle of irrelevant information, geometric designs, mathematical calculation, astronomical alignments, are part of a false spirituality based on solid objects, rather than immortal spirits, in order to confuse and disorient the IS-BEs on Earth.”

“Old Empire” engineers used cutting tools of highly concentrated light waves to quickly carve and excavate stone blocks. They also used force fields and space craft to lift and transport blocks of stone weighing hundred or thousands of tons each. The placement on the ground of some of these structures will be found to have geodetic or astronomical significance relative to various stars in this galactic region.

The buildings are crude and impractical, compared to building standards on most planets.  As an engineer of The Domain, I can attest that make-shift structures like these would never pass inspection on a planet in The Domain.  Stone blocks such as those used in the pyramid civilizations can still be seen, partially excavated, in the stone quarries in the Middle East and elsewhere.

Most of the structures were hastily built “props”, much like the false facades of a western town on the set of a motion picture.  They appear to be real, and to have some use or value, however, they have no value. They have no useful purpose.  The pyramids and all of the other stone monuments erected by the “Old Empire” could be called “mystery monuments”.  For what reason would anyone waste so many resources to construct so many useless buildings?  To create a mysterious illusion.

The fact of the matter is that each one of the “divine rulers” were IS-BEs who served as operatives of the “Old Empire”.  They were certainly not “divine”, although they were IS-BEs.”

— Excerpt from the Top Secret military transcripts from 1947, published in the book ALIEN INTERVIEW

“Eventually The Domain discovered that a wide area of space is monitored by an “electronic force field” [i] (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.

If any IS-BE attempts to penetrate the force screen, it “captures” them in a kind of “electronic net”.  The result is that the captured IS-BE is subjected to a very severe “brainwashing” treatment which erases the memory of the IS-BE.  This process uses a tremendous electrical shock, just like Earth psychiatrists use “electric shock therapy” to erase the memory and personality of a “patient” and to make them more “cooperative”.

On Earth this “therapy” uses only a few hundred volts of electricity.  However, the electrical voltage used by the “Old Empire” operation against IS-BEs is on the order of magnitude of billions of volts!  This tremendous shock completely wipes out all the memory of the IS-BE.  The memory erasure is not just for one life or one body.  It wipes out all of the accumulated experiences of a nearly infinite past, as well as the identity of the IS-BE! 

The shock is intended to make it impossible for the IS-BE to remember who they are, where they came from, their knowledge or skills, their memory of the past, and ability to function as a spiritual entity.  They are overwhelmed into becoming a mindless, robotic non-entity.”

FOOTNOTE:

[i]  …”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, .”

EDITORS NOTE:

If we apply the information given to Nurse MacElroy in the Top Secret military transcripts published in the book ALIEN INTERVIEW to the documentary information revealed in the excellent televised documentary “ANCIENT ALIENS – Aliens and the Secret Code”, we will discover more about the structural nature of the “amnesia force screens” grid that surround the prison planet, Earth.

This episode of the popular History Channel program (Exec. Producer, Kevin Burns) which first aired in the U.S. in October, 2011, provides wonderful film and photographic evidence of the “amnesia force screen” created by the “false façade civilizations” of the Old Empire, as described in detail in Top Secret military transcripts from the 1947 Roswell UFO crash, published in the book ALIEN INTERVIEW.

According the “ancient astronaut theorists”, a so-called “world grid” linked by precisely oriented straight lines that circumscribe the entire globe, connects ALL of the significant “ancient stone monuments” of Earth.  The stone structures on this grid include a wide variety of sites separated by thousands of miles in distance and thousands of years in time.  Each the these megalithic stone monuments was built at a precise location along the lines of an interconnected grid of “electromagnetic power spots” or “vortex areas”.  Here is a partial list of locations, as sited in the video:

  • Stonehenge, England
  • The Great Pyramid of Egypt
  • The Pyramids of Teotihuacan, Mexico
  • Machu Pichu, Peru
  • The New Grange Passage “tomb”, Ireland
  • The ancient Hopi villages in the American Southwest
  • The Thornburg Henges in Yorkshire, England
  • “Ley Lines” or straight magnetic field lines connecting dozens of stone sites in England and France which have been maintained for thousands of years as of “spiritual significance”.
  • Trelleborg, and 3 other ancient Viking ruins, in Denmark, which align in a straight line to The Oracle of Delphi, in Greece and the Great Pyramid of Egypt.
  • Oracle of Delphi (home of the god Apollo), in Greece.
  • Cusco, Peru (“Navel of The World”) and center of the Inca Empire
  • Jerusalem, Israel  (also a “Navel of The World”)
  • Easter Island  (also a “Navel of The World”)
  • Mohenjo-Daro, Pakistan (supposedly built around 2,600 BCE  and destroyed by a nuclear blast)
  • The “landing field” plateau of Nasca, Peru connects in a straight line to the stone temples of Angkor Wat, Cambodia.
  • The exact style of stone building exists in Cusco, Peru as exist thousands of miles away in the foundations of the massive stone Moai on Easter Island.
  • All four of the aforementioned sites connect in a straight line around the Earth to the Great Pyramid in Egypt.
  • Mount Sinai, Baalbek in Lebanon and The Temple Mount in Israel across the desert of the Middle East form a straight line.  (All of these sites are reported by ancient people to have been used as a “landing place of the gods’)
  • The Gavrinis Tomb, 52 megalithic stones used to build a “tomb” constructed on an island off the coast of France more than 5,000 years ago.

A LIST OF SHARED CHARACTERISTICS OF MEGALITHIC STONE MONUMENTS ON THE “WORLD GRID”:

  • Every one of the ancient stone monuments was built by “The Gods”, according to native inhabitants of the area in which the monument stands.
  • Each of these are megalithic stone structures were carved from massive blocks of rock using a technology that no one has been able to explain or replicate.
  • Most of the building materials — blocks of stone weighing tens or hundreds of tons each — were carved from extremely hard stone, quarried and transported over a very long distances (hundreds of miles or more) during the “stone age”, or “bronze age”.  Many of the indigenous people did not even have wheels, as in Mesoamerican and South America.
  • There is no evidence of tools anywhere on Earth that would be enable building any of the ancient monuments by human beings during the time period they were supposedly built.
  • Reports of “extraterrestrial” visitations from “the gods” are connected with ALL of these sites.
  • Frequent sightings of UFO activity is commonly reported near each of the sites.
  • Most of the “ancient megalithic sites” are precisely oriented to various star constellations, (for example: The Pyramid complex in Giza is a copy of the Belt of Orion on the ground, as juxtaposed to the Milky Way (Nile River) as seen in the night sky in the year 10,500 BCE).
  • Every one of the stone monuments contain the use of highly sophisticated mathematics, which have only been “discovered” by western civilization in relatively modern times.
  • All of the monuments required, and contain evidence of, sophisticated application of advanced mathematics long before these were “discovered” by human beings.
  • Every one of the stone megalithic sites have an important “religious” significance to one or more religions.  This includes ALL of the “Old Empire” religions described in the ALIEN INTERVIEW transcripts.
  • Many of the megalithic stone monument sites were, and still are, referred to as “The Navel” or “The Center of The World”.
  • All of the megalithic stone monument sites have significant electromagnetic fields emanating from them.
  • All of the monuments are linked together by electromagnetic energy.
  • None of the monuments sites display any evidence of offering “help” or anything of actual survival value to Mankind
  • All of the sites are of “mysterious” origin and there actual purpose are indecipherable.
  • Every monument site appears to be one of the “false façade” civilizations of the “Old Empire”.

THE ACTUAL REASON FOR and — — USE OF THE “WORLD GRID” BY THE “OLD EMPIRE” PRISON PLANET ADMINISTRATORS (which is comprised primarily of priests, according to the transcripts published in the book ALIEN INTERVIEW:

“Before 30,000 BCE — Earth started being used as a dumping ground and prison for IS-BEs who were judged “untouchable”, meaning criminal or non-conformists.  IS-BEs were captured, encapsulated in electronic traps and transported to Earth from various parts of the “Old Empire”.  Underground “amnesia stations” were set up on Mars and on Earth in the Rwenzori Mountains in Africa, in the Pyrenees Mountains of Portugal, and in steppes of Mongolia.

These electronic monitoring points create force screens designed to detect and capture IS-BEs, when the IS-BE departs the body at death.  IS-BEs are brainwashed using extreme electronic force in order to maintain Earth’s population in state of perpetual amnesia.  Further population controls are installed through the use of long range electronic thought control mechanisms.

These stations are still in operation and they are extremely difficult to attack or destroy, even for The Domain, which will not maintain a significant military force in this area until a later date.”

Aquatic Unit of The Domain Search Party

“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”.  [i] (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. [ii] (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”. [iii] (Footnote)  

Members of the Aquatic Unit of The Domain Search Party were called “Oannes” by local humans. [iv] (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. [v] (Footnote)

Excerpt from the Top Secret transcripts published in the book ALIEN INTERVIEW.


[i]  “… 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 selfor true nature, with the power of purification and return to being.

[iii]  “… 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.”

“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.”

[v]  “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.”
