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: 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-
