Corn, The destoryer of history?



Over this last weekend I had a small conversation that bought up the fact that a number of experts state that pineapples were/are shown on ancient Roman urns and other Roman art-work. Not only that, but the same experts also claim that in the ancient world the pineapple is related to some type creation or creator.

There is only one serious problem with these claims, the ancient Romans could not have known about pineapples, in fact there should be no way any ancient culture of the old world could have ever known about them in the first place. This is because the ‘pineapple’ wasn’t known in Europe until 1694 and is native to South America. So this little fact kind of destroys the whole idea that the Romans could have known about them, much less show it in their art-work or does it?

There appears to be a very serious problem with our understanding of history and there something else besides pineapples, that seems to back it up. This something else is good old fashion ‘corn’.
We all know about the history of corn. It was developed over the last 5,000 years here in the Americans by the native people. It is also very well known that corn was unknown to the old world until the age of exploration in the late 1400s and 1500s. Or at least that is what we are all told.

The problem is that there are a number of ancient stories that clearly speak of corn. I will give two examples here. The first is the Bible’s book of Genesis. In chapter 42 of the Book of Genesis, it tells the story of great famine in the land and Jacob sends his sons to Egypt to buy ‘corn’. In fact corn is repeatedly used in this chapter and story. So the first question is how can the Bible be speaking of ‘corn’ if the ancient world didn’t know about? Now, I must say I am totally open to the idea and argument that ‘corn’ in the Biblical story could be nothing more than a mistranslation or just a misunderstanding of the original text. It isn’t like the Bible isn’t full of those. All very easily explained away…or so it seems.

There is something else that seems to back up the idea that the ancient peoples of the Middle Eastern area knew about corn and that the Bible could be correct. This something else is the stories from ancient Greece and of ‘Demeter, the goddess of corn’. Wait, what? How could that happen? How could the people of ancient Greece have a goddess of corn when modern science says something totally different?

This one is much harder to dismiss, with the reason being is that many an ancient writer spoke of Demeter and her relation to corn. In the modern book ‘Mythology by Edith Hamilton’ she talks about how one of the few things we know about the Eleusinian mysteries and the worship of Demeter is “at a very solemn moment the worshipers were shown ‘an ear of corn which had been reaped in silence’” (Mythology, p.53,).

So how did the ancient people know about ‘corn’ if our modern idea is correct? Do we just discount these stories because they don’t fit the way we want? Or do we accept the fact that our modern interpretation and understanding of corn could be wrong or at least missing something?

As you can now see and understand for yourself, something isn’t quite right with our understanding of history, if the story is messed up by corn of all things (and pineapples). 
Doesn’t this bring everything else into question? Because we are told that our modern understanding of corn is based on good, solid science like genetics, anthropology, archaeology, etc… but at the very same time we have these ancient stories that are clearly telling us that just can’t be right. So what is going on? Who is wrong? What evidence do you believe? The ancient stories or modern science? Because both can’t be right. -RJ-

Ancient Cylinder Seals & the Esoteric - Part III


In the first two parts of this series you have been presented with the esoteric idea that the ancient cylinder seals show a single continuous story and that single story is also the ‘Dream Vision’ contained in the Book of Enoch. Here in Part III we will take our first real look at the Seals and how the tie directly to the Dream Vision of Enoch.

Within the Dream Vision, Enoch speaks of a ‘house that was built for the Lord’ and that it became ‘great and broad’ and over time a ‘tower lofty and great was built on the house’. This house and tower that Enoch speaks of is one the keys to unlocking the rest of the hidden esoteric story. First we to look at the actual verse from the Book of Enoch and then we will look at the Cylinder Seals.

And that house became great and broad, and it was built for those sheep: And a tower lofty and great was built on the house for the Lord of the sheep, and that house was low but the tower was elevated and lofty, and Lord of the sheep stood on that tower and they offered a full table before him” (Book of Enoch, Chapter 89, verse 50)

The idea of an ancient ‘tower’ is nothing new; in fact you most likely had a couple of different stories or myths jump into your head as you read the above. (Wikipedia has a page on the ‘Tower of Babel’ that gives a decent description of it and a number of sources on few other ancient ‘tower’ stories and can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tower_of_Babel. In THE FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE OF ENOCH I devote an entire chapter to the ‘Tower’ and additional information can be found there).

For our purposes here today, we only need to focus on the idea of a ‘tower’ and how it might be related to the ancient cylinder seals. Because when you begin looking at the ancient cylinder seals with this idea in mind you might be rather astonished at what you will find.

We will begin with a seal that could be showing us the construction of the ‘house’ that Enoch speaks of. This is a picture of a modern impression of a seal from Teli Bilia; that experts say shows us two cultic scenes involving a boat ride and a procession toward a temple, it has been missing from the Iraqi National Museum collection since 2003. The actual seal was believed to date to around 3,000 BC.

  
As I said, this could be showing us the building of the ‘house’ and not a ‘procession’ as the experts say. I find the fact that this seal has gone missing from the Iraqi National Museum rather intriguing and makes me wonder, if in fact this idea could be correct. As we look at the next few seals you might be wondering the same thing.

The next cylinder seal is rather self-explanatory, in the aspect of what you are looking at. This seal is also rather famous and well-known, especially in ancient astronaut circles. As you can see it clearly shows what appears to be a tower being constructed upon a smaller foundation structure. (The other symbolic elements of this cylinder seal can be found in THE FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE OF ENOCH)

It doesn’t take much imagination to think this could be the ‘house’ that Enoch speaks of. I find it intriguing that this small foundation structure looks much like a step-pyramid, which then brings to my mind the idea that the step-pyramids, that are found all over the world in many different ancient cultures could in fact have served a different purpose and were the foundations for towers? We will take a closer look at this idea a little later in the series.

Sumerian Cylinder Seal, date unknown.
  
As you can see, it does look like a tower that is ‘lofty and great’. In the next seal we will look at you can actually begin ‘seeing’ the different phases of construction of this ‘tower’ and that everybody has misinterpreted what these ancient artifact are in fact showing us.

Cylinder Seal of bull-men flanking deity above sacred tree: mid 8th-7th Century BC – Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This seal shows us a very similar tower-like object in the center with two half-human, half-bull, individuals on each side with what appears to be a ‘angel’ like being standing behind one, with a ‘winged-solar-disk’ symbol above the tower-like object. It also has two small animal figures on each side of the tower-like object; I point this out because they seem similar to the animals spoken of by Enoch in the Dream Vision and seem to be related to the overall story.

This ‘tower-like-object’ is what we want to focus on. If we look at this with the idea of a tower, then we can see that this cylinder seal shows us either, a different tower or that something has been done to the original tower that was celebrated and recorded. It might seem a little confusing at the moment of what you are looking at with this seal but as we look at the next one it will become clearer and easier to understand.

Seal of Chalcedony, 9th Century BC

 With this third seal the whole picture starts to become clear and easy to understand. You can clearly see the mechanical nature of the structure and that it is actually a tower. With this seal showing us that series of support structures have been constructed and that an outer-covering is being lowered into place by the ‘winged-solar-disk’ with two individuals on each side, with strange bird-men behind them. (Again, these individuals and most of the other symbolic meaning to these scenes are explored in THE FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE OF ENOCH)

The next and final seal we will look at today should now make sense and be easy to understand. That we are seeing the finished ‘tower’ and the ‘Lord’ that stood upon it.


Cylinder Seal and impression, Mesopotamia, Neo-Babylonian period, 1,000-539 BC – Morgan Library & Museum.

Which now you should understand that everybody has been incorrect in their interpretation of these seals and what they are actually showing us. They are actually showing us different phases of the construction of a tower ‘that was lofty and great’ that the ‘Lord’ stood upon and that the experts are wrong in their interpretation of these ancient cylinder seals.

The last image we will look at will help support this. This is a stone relief from the throne room of Ashurnasirpal II and the object in the center has been interpreted by the experts as the ‘tree of life’ and it should be noted that many supporters of ‘Ancient Astronaut Theory’ say this is a representation of DNA. But as you have just seen above (and as explained in greater detail in THE FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE OF ENOCH), both camps must be wrong and that in fact we are looking at a highly stylized representation of ‘tower’ and the ‘Lord’ that stood upon it, just as described in the Dream Vision in the Book of Enoch and many other myths and legends from around the world. 

Stone relief from the throne room of Ashurnasirpal II. Neo-Assyrian, 870-860 BC.
 
Just as before in Part II with the ‘bee-hive’ symbol and understanding that it is an esoteric religious symbol showing the ‘mountain of god’, you should now begin to understand the reason why ‘towers’ seem so important to the followers of the esoteric and why so many ridiculously large ‘skyscrapers’ have been built over the years all around the world. It is because they represent the ‘tower that Lord stood upon’ and the power that it held; the power of God.

In Part V we will explore more of this idea of a tower and start looking at an event that is directly related to this tower, the Dream Vision, the Bible, and the beginning of a long forgotten war. -RJ-

Ancient Cylinder Seals & the Esoteric - Part II



In Part I of this series, we looked at what a Cylinder Seal is. You were also presented with the esoteric idea that they tell a single continuous story. Here in Part II we will look at the next part of the first secret of the ancient cylinder seals.

The second part of the first secret is what story is told on the cylinder seals. This story is the key to unlocking the rest of the esoteric belief. The story that is told on the cylinder seals (and great number of other artifacts) is very simply the ‘Dream Visions’ contained in chapters 83 to 90 from the Book of Enoch.

To understand exactly how the ‘Dream Visions’ of Enoch ties to the cylinder seals and the rest of the esoteric story you are going to have to read THE FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE OF ENOCH. But at the moment all you need to understand is that the followers of the esoteric religion believe that this is true; that the single continuous story shown/told by the Ancient Cylinder Seal is in fact the ‘Dream Visions’ from the Book of Enoch.

Which for the people who haven’t read THE FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE OF ENOCH you are probably asking yourself “what the heck is the ‘Dream Vision’ from the Book of Enoch”?

The ‘Dream Visions’ are traditionally interpreted as an allegorical account of the history of Israel that uses animals to represent human beings and human beings to represent angels. The ‘Dream Visions’ can be found at sacred-texts at the following link: http://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/boe/boe086.htm or in the ‘Appendix A’ in THE FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE OF ENOCH.

One of the crucial things that tie the ‘Dream Vision’ of Enoch to the Ancient Cylinder Seals is that same ‘animal’ characters spoken of in the story; also appear to be the same ‘animals’ as shown on the Ancient Seals. As I go along with this series we will take a closer look at this. The next element to understand is that there are things spoken of in the ‘Dream Vision’ that don’t seem to be on the Seals and there are scenes on the Seals that don’t seem to be spoken of in the Dream Vision. The truth is that both are fragmented, with each appearing to have elements common to both.

I think you will find the same thing as I, as we look at the Seals; that there is more than enough overlap between them, that it makes it very hard, if not impossible to deny that this is most likely the correct interpretation; that the Ancient Cylinder Seals are showing us the same basic story as contained the Dream Visions in the Book of Enoch, just as the followers of the esoteric already know.

Another factor to understand is that the ‘Dream Vision’ also ties directly into the Biblical story and tradition, it allows us to fill in some of the gaps which then ties it all back into our modern world of today and the Esoteric Religion. (This connection is explored in THE FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE OF ENOCH and more information can be found there).

Now before we get too far ahead of ourselves, we need to stop and start looking at the Ancient Cylinder Seals themselves. The first Seal we will look at has been made rather famous by the late Zecharia Sitchin and is the VA-243 Cylinder Seal in the Berlin Near Eastern Museum. It should be noted that the scene this particular Seal shows, does not appear to be spoken of in the Dream Vision. (We will take a closer look at this in Part III)

VA-243, Berlin Near Eastern Museum, (circa. 2,400 BC)

There are number of elements on this Cylinder Seal that I explore in-depth in THE FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE OF ENOCH and what I think makes this Seal important. I also show/tell you why Zecharia Sitchin was so very wrong in his interpretation of this Seal (and pretty much his whole idea). What many are not aware of is the fact that this Cylinder Seal and the scene it shows is not unique. In fact this ‘scene’ is shown on a few other Seals. As seen below:


Akkadian Cylinder Seal – (circa. 2,250 BC to 2,500) British Museum 
 
Akkadian Cylinder Seal (circa. 2,342 – 2,154 BC)
 
Akkadian Cylinder Seal (circa. 2,334 – 2,154) Morgan Museum

These seals all date from about the same time and are from Ancient Akkadian. They also appear to show the same scene with two or three individuals bringing a ‘staff’ to an individual sitting on some type of bee-hive like object in three of the four Seals.

This is where an understanding of symbolism comes in handy, especially what is known in the pop-culture as ‘occult symbolism’. The only item I wish to point out today is the bee-hive like object. (Again, the other symbolic elements can be found in THE FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE OF ENOCH)

This ‘bee-hive object’ or symbol is still with us today and used all the time by the followers of the esoteric. Only when viewed with the knowledge of the Cylinder Seals can you begin to understand its meaning and why it is important to the followers of the Esoteric Religion. Because if you don’t understand the connection between the Cylinder Seals, the Dream Vision of Enoch and how both tie directly into the Biblical story and tradition, it will not make much sense, and you will end up calling ‘occult’.

The final piece to understand is the meaning of the ‘symbolism’ and that it is actually what ties it all together. (To keep this simple I will just jump right to the esoteric interpretation of the bee-hive symbol. For addition information on understanding esoteric symbolism, please see THE FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE OF ENOCH).

The bee-hive represents the ‘mountain’ of a god. In the Judo-Christian tradition this would be ‘God sitting upon his mountain’ or the ‘high place of the Lord’. It is only with this little piece of knowledge does the scene come alive and we can understand some of what we are looking at. This is showing us a “God sitting upon his mountain, receiving or being presented with the ‘Caduceus’ (or Herald’s Staff, also known as the ‘staff of the gods)”.

This is why the followers of the esoteric like using the bee-hive in their symbolism it represents the ‘mountain of God’. You have to admit it is a really slick way of hiding a religious symbol right in front of everybody’s faces.

In Part III we will begin looking at the next piece of the puzzle that will start showing the actual connection between the Cylinder Seals and the Dream Vision in the Book of Enoch. It will also provide a possible idea of what we are looking at on the Seals above and begin our journey down the rabbit hole into the recondite knowledge of the esoteric. -RJ-
