The Etemenanki web site went into a state of 'hibernation' after
the April update, but it has more to do with me being very busy with my
book project than me losing interest in the issues discussed here.
While away, I continued to notice a lot of 'hints' in events that conformed
to our big picture/pattern, and I can list and explain them but I'm getting
a little tired of doing it (I'm now more interested in the 'next step'
whatever that may be), so let us just move on. The reason for this
update is the Concord crash near Paris yesterday (July 25). I felt
this event was too symbolically significant to not be discussed here -
it correlates very clearly with the 'pattern' we've been following.
As those who have followed this site would know, plane crashes are something
I found to somehow relate to the Ark-Grail theme. Yesterday's Concord
crash near Paris, the first ever crash of the Concorde jets, was no
exception. First, Paris is a city I've repeatedly pointed out as
a pretty big part of the Ark-Grail complex. Second, the date July
25 is one of the key dates I've identified in the past and indeed the date
was directly linked with Paris and the Ark-Grail theme in the 8/10/99
update. Third, the doomed Concorde was en route to NYC - another
major 'Ark-Grail city' (and recall that TWA 800, another symbolism-filled
major plane crash, was en route to Paris from NYC). Fourth, the day
of the Concorde crash saw another disaster - the collapse
of the intensive talks between Israelis and Palestinians
at Camp David with no agreement reached. The central issue
discussed at Camp David was that of Jerusalem - the city of the
Ark where the Ark of the Covenant that King David brought was kept in the
Temple. The name 'Camp David' reinforces the allusion to the
Ark. Notice the remarkable parallel between the Concorde crash and
the collapse of the Mideast talks: the hope of reaching a 'concord' concerning
the 'Ark city' (Jerusalem) crashed on the same day 'Concorde' crashed in
another Ark-Grail city (Paris). Another key theme connected with
the Ark-Grail theme, Isis/Sirius-Mary Magdalene, is also incorporated into
the symbolism: while President Clinton was away in Japan for few days,
his job as the mediator at Camp David was taken over by Secretary of State
Madeleine Albright whose first name derives from 'Magdalene'; the number
of passengers killed in the Concorde crash, 100 (+ 9 flight attendants
and 4 on the ground), matches the orbital period of Sirius B around Sirius,
50 years, which was counted double (i.e. 100) by the ancients (the Dogon,
etc.); the feast day of Mary Magdalene is July 22, only three days before
the 'crash day'. And, according to tradition, the name 'Paris' is
related to Isis.
It is currently big news
that the little Cuban boy Elian Gonzales was
taken from the Miami relatives' home in a pre-dawn raid by the federal
agents. And it is remarkable that this event is filled with
significant symbolisms. The initial big clue is that this occurred
during the Easter weekend. Easter, of course, marks the day of Jesus'
resurrection - thus directly relating to our 'resurrection' theme
that we have been observing for quite a while now (see previous updates).
The fact that the event took place on Saturday also correlates well with
our theme being primarily a Saturnian resurrection. In addition,
the Easter connection is significant in that Easter/Passover is considered
'a time of rescue', just as Elian was in a way "rescued" from those who
were holding him back from his parent.
Actually, the Elian saga, from the very beginning, had a subtle underlying
theme going related to Jesus and the key theme of the Grail-Ark.
In the beginning, the Cuban boy was 'saved from water' - just as Noah (of
Noah's Ark, of course), Moses (of the Ark of the Covenant) who was saved
by an Egyptian princess after his mother set him adrift on the river in
an ark (and the name 'Moses' is often interpreted to mean just that,
'saved from water'), etc. It should also be pointed out that Easter,
as Passover, celebrates the Hebrews being 'rescued' from slavery in Egypt
- a momentous event in which Moses played a central role. There is
another biblical figure who was 'saved from water'. And it is Jesus
(of the Holy Grail, or 'Blood Royal') - though it was more symbolic in
his case: the event pertinent here is, of course, his baptism by John the
Baptist where Jesus was ritualistically 'saved from water'. And apart
from biblical characters, there is Perseus, a great hero in Greek mythology,
who is associated with both an ark and being 'saved from water'.
The myth tells us that Acrisius, angry at Danae (Perseus's mother), put
her and the infant Perseus in a wooden ark which was cast into the sea.
Note that this parallels that fact that it was Elian and his mother, and
not his father, who tried to sail to the United States on a boat.
Danae and Perseus were then saved by a fisherman which, remarkably, was
exactly what happened to Elian as he was saved by a fisherman (though his
The name 'Elian' is interesting as well. For example, 'Eliane'
(which presumably is related to 'Elian') derives from 'helios', i.e. the
'sun'. The significance of this is that the god Helios is also known
as Apollo and the name of the latter means 'a stone' (according to one
source, at least), and a stone is in many ways linked with the Ark-Grail
(the Grail is, for example, described as a stone in Wolfram von Eschenbach's
Parsival; and the Ark of the Covenant held stone tablets
inside). In addition, Easter is related to the 'sun' in that the
day of the festival is counted from the spring equinox which is when the
sun is seen to 'pass over' the celestial equator.
And 'Elaine', which may be viewed as a variant of Elian/Eliane, which
derives from 'Helen', yields interesting links as well. Helen, in
Greek mythology, was the most beautiful woman of the age, and, remarkably,
abduction is a big part of her story - resonating with the "abduction"
of Elian from his relatives' home. First, Helen was abducted when
she was just nine by Theseus. And then later in her life, she was,
again, 'abducted' by Paris who is associated with fire (his mother saw
the unborn child as a torch) and the apple (he was the judge in the beauty
contest for the prize of the 'golden apple' which he gave to Aphrodite/Venus
who is version of Isis-Sirius). And of course, Paris, fire, apple,
Isis-Sirius are part of the Grial-Ark complex (see 1999:
The Ark of Sirius). It is also intriguing that Helen was
abducted from her adopted family, just as Elian was. Note, additionally,
that the 'golden apple' was 'For the Fairest' and this may correlate with
the fact that Easter was considered a 'day of white' since 'fairest' can
mean 'whitest'. At any rate, Paris's abduction of Helen lead to the
famous Trojan War - will this manifest in the Elian Gonzale's case in some
way also? It will be interesting to see.
At the turn of the century/Mennellilum: Pope canceling his trip to Iraq,
the media blackout on EgyptAir 990 crash, Mars Polar Lander missing, the
Great-Pyramid capstone ceremony at Giza canceled, the millennium clock
on the Eiffel Tower and the big millennium 'Wheel' thing (potent symbol
of time) in London shut down at the last minute, Y2K bug failing to show
up, etc. Get the drift? It seems like the groundhog had decided
to stay in hibernation a little longer.
Saturnalia (Dec. 17-23): Mars Polar Lander was not resurrected during the
Saturnalia as I hypothesized as a possibility, but now NASA has announced
that it may have located weak signals from MPL - the first one was apparently
received on... Dec. 18. It was also interesting that fairly major
about the Nazis surfaced on the Saturnalia day of Dec. 17th. But
what I found most interesting during Saturnalia was the launch of space
on Dec. 19. First, the time of the launch was 19:50 (symbolic of
19.5). And then (I'm sure I'm the only one who noticed this - and
I don't even know how I managed to catch it) there was a very intriguing
connection with a TV program. Which one? Of course, the 'Discovery'
Channel (for space shuttle Discovery)! :) From 19:00, Discovery
Channel was running a documentary about the recovery of the the Liberty
Bell space capsule that was located and brought out of the deep water
after spending 38 years at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.
As mentioned before, this event took place on the
key Sirian date of July 20 ('99) - the date NASA has used for especially
important missions such as Apollo 11 Moon landing and Viking 1 Mars landing.
It turns out that the symbolic importance of the space shuttle Discovery
(the last mission of the 20th century) was also confirmed by this date.
How can that be, as the launch was in December? If one watched the
'Discovery' Channel and the launch of the shuttle Discovery simultaneously,
s/he would have witnessed the incredible synchronization: at the moment
of Discovery's lift-off, the Liberty Bell space capsule finally
came out of the Atlantic Ocean and brought onto the ship on July 20th (and
there were some seconds where the live TV showing the climbing Discovery
and the Discovery Channel showed almost identical pictures of a rocket
blasting into space)! It was very amusing.
Interestingly, there is a rumor
going around that the Pope may step down next
year. So... it's looking as if the beginning of the new millennium
will see a change in papacy as suspected.
The search for lost Mars Polar Lander had officially ended
on January 17th. The date, not surprisingly, is an esoterically very
significant date. January 17 is a extremely recurrent date surrounding
Rennes-le-Chateau and the Priory of Sion (these are related to the issue
of the Ark-Grail).
Those who watched Super bowl should have gotten a glimpse of the coming
movie about Mars (briefly mentioned in previous update), 'Mission to
Mars' in a commercial. This movie, indeed, seems to involve the
issue of Cydonia and, as I expected, human origin. "Coincidentally,"
we are getting news
stories about our possible descent from the Red Planet.
Now, I'm not sure if I want say this... but here is something that the
data I have is suggesting to me. It's that the year 2000/2001 is
to bring to the United States one of the biggest events the country has
ever experienced. This is not something I 'believe' or based on 'millennial'
mentality; it's just what the data I have (not presented on this website)
is suggesting to me. The key concepts attached to this are termination
and 'New World'.
Okay, first, the Mars Polar Lander.
Well, it seems that Mars really doesn't like visitors from Earth.
Just like a lot of the other (an unnaturally high percentage of them) failed
missions to Mars, the Polar Lander, once it reached its destination, it
to be heard from again. What happened? No one is sure,
apparently. I can, however, provide some interesting symbolic coincidences
Big part of the on-going symbolic theme that I've observed in the events
of the world recently, as discussed repeatedly before, is that of Sirius/Isis/Magdalene.
Therefore it is intriguing to notice that in December, the month I had
specifically linked with that particular theme, the probe to Mars (Mars
being another important and recurrent theme heavily intertwined with that
of Sirius/Isis) reached the south pole of the Red Planet to, among other
things, look for water - because Sirius/Isis/Mary (signifying femininity
and the Goddess) has been intimately associated with water and the sea.
Looking for water, therefore, would translates as 'looking for Sirius/Isis/Magdalene',
which then would relate to the intertwined 'resurrection' theme.
So what does the failing of the mission symbolically mean in this context?
Note that the doomed mission to find the 'Goddess' was seemingly echoed
by another news of the same day (Dec. 3) about the 'death' of an Oscar-nominated
Kahn, as the name 'Madaline' derives from Magdalene. Perhaps
it could be viewed that the 'death' of the Mars Polar Lander was the symbolic
prelude to the subsequent 'resurrection' that we may see soon in some form.
For example, it would be symbolically quite satisfying if NASA somehow
managed to 'resurrect' the Polar Lander (i.e. establish communication)
during Saturnalia (Dec. 17-23), etc.
If we recall, the Sirius/Isis resurrection theme in conjunction with
Mars (the theme connected, relatively recently, with this December) was
especially linked with two quatrains in '1999: The Ark of Sirius'
- II-41 and II-48. If we take another look at II-48, we are struck
by not only the mention of 'Mars' and 'Arc' (=> Ark => Mary/Isis) in Line
2, but by the quatrains' last word 'polemars' (not a real word).
As I did in 'The Ark of Sirius', the enigmatic word can be
divided into 'pole' and 'mars', i.e. Mars' pole - the destination of the
Mars Polar Lander. The rest of the quatrain can still be interpreted
in various ways in this new supplementary context. The reader can
have some fun doing their own interpretation.
The great army which will pass
Saturn in the Arc turning from/of
the fish Mars:
Poison hidden under the heads of
Their chief hung with cord of polemars.
Let me touch on another curious aspect of the Mars Polar Lander mission.
As originally noted, or popularized, by Richard Hoagland ('The Enterprise
Mission'), the tetrahedral angle, 19.5 degrees, appears to be closely
connected with Mars (or more specifically, the Cydonia region) and NASA
space missions have somehow incorporated this, and other, key number in
a ritualistic manner (this strange notion has been recently proved
mathematically). The base geometry for this tetrahedral angle
of 19.5 degrees is a tetrahedron in a circumscribing sphere (in this configuration,
one apex of the tetrahedron touches the pole of the sphere and the other
three apexes touch the latitude of 19.5 degrees). For the very successful
Mars Pathfinder mission (1997), the incorporation of 19.5 was more than
obvious: the lander landed on the latitude 19.5 degrees, and the lander
was tetrahedron-shaped! It turns out that, not surprisingly, the
Mars Polar Lander incorporated a reference to the tetrahedral geometry
also. Go to this page to see the clever allusion.
Dec. 1, one of the key dates noted in the previous update, saw a repeat
of last year's symbolically significant event of Dec. 1 - the merger
of Exxon and Mobil. (It was actually a day before Dec. 1 in the
US this year, but other parts of the world was already Dec. 1.) Go
to the 12/1/98 update for some discussion on its
Interestingly, Dec. 1 also saw the remarkable news
about the Human Genome Project which has sequenced the first human
chromosome. Genetics is, as can been read in '1999: Final Solution',
is something I've linked with the other key themes. It is probably
meaningful that the success of the human genome sequencing roughly coincided
with the Mars Polar Lander event. Combine the two and the subtextual
message seems to become clearer. 'Coincidentally', we'll have a major
Hollywood movie about Mars next spring (?) in which the message will probably
be clarified even more (though never expect or accept a straight answer
as there are always devilish twists!).
It appears that the Pope's scheduled trip to Iraq/Ur has been canceled.
So, my previous speculation about his reign coming to its end around the
turn of the century may have perhaps been offset by this.
Even though I did not point it out beforehand, it should've been clear
to those who read my '1999' expositions that Halloween was the
'resurrection' date - resurrection being the key symbolic theme very relevant
to the period of c. 1999. And sure enough, we had a major event on
Oct. 31, Halloween, that is still making the headlines today - the crash
of EgyptAir 990. Needless to say, airplane
crashes are something that I had pointed out to be strongly relating to
the Grail/Ark theme in '1999:
The Ark of Sirius'. And the significance of NYC and Egypt/Cairo,
the doomed plane's origination and destination, I don't think I need to
explain. So basically, this EgyptAir 990 crash was a 'textbook' case
of the manifestation of the symbolic 'pattern' that has been discussed
on this web site for a long time now. And I'm sure it was pretty
obvious to those who had followed this web site for some time without me
explaining it - though judging from the emails that I got since the crash,
I kind of wonder if people are not understanding my work.
Another intriguing, additional symbolism involved in the EgyptAir 990
is that the particular plane was named 'Thutmosis III' (a powerful pharaoh
from the 18th Dynasty of ancient Egypt). Richard Hoagland, being
a very clever guy, has already discussed
some implications of this connection. But it can be added that this
great king of Armageddon (the prophetic 'Armageddon' derives from Thutmosis
III's military campaign against Megiddo; Armageddon => Har Megiddon i.e.
the Mount of Megiddo) falling from the sky (i.e. EgyptAir 990) relates
to X-72's 'great king of terror' who 'will come from the sky'. Though
there are other, more significant, implications, I rather not go into it
at this time.
It is interesting to note that the situation of recovering, extracting,
and interpreting the information of the EgyptAir plane's 'black boxes'
can be viewed as a symbolic, and foreshadowing, enactment of the widely
anticipated discovery (primarily based on Edgar Cayce's prediction which
I'm not necessarily endorsing) of what might be called the 'Hall of Records'
which is said to contain information relating to "Atlantis" - i.e. 'resurrection'
of (the knowledge of) "Atlantis". We can likely gain some insights
from how the EgyptAir 990 crashed about how "Atlantis" fell. On another
level, it would yield some insights into the affairs of the 18th Dynasty
of ancient Egypt, etc.
December should be a very interesting month. First, we have Dec.
1 - the feast day of Poseidon, the original ruler of Atlantis.
And also Dec. 17-23 - the Saturnalia, festival of Saturn.
Dec. 25 - Christmas, etc. A capstone placed on top of the
Great Pyramid on Dec. 31/Jan. 1. Etc. etc.
As mentioned before, the placing of a capstone on the Great Pyramid would
relate to Sirius (C) and subsequently, based on my interpretation, the
fall of the pope/Church. And the placing of the capstone precisely
at the turn of the century can relate to a major character in my model,
Mary Magdalene - a version of Isis (Sirius) - as '2000' can be written
as 'MM' (initials of Mary Magdalene). What I forgot to point out
previously was the coherent implication of the apparent link between the
Magdalene and the fall of the pope/Church. The 'resurrection' of
Mary Magdalene, or the hidden/suppressed history, or reality, symbolized
by the Holy Grail (or even "Atlantis" in some way), would automatically
means the collapse of the foundation of the Church because the tale of
the 'Grail'/Magdalene clearly exposes the corruption and the nonexistent
authority of the Church. Acknowledging the truer story of the Magdalene
and the surrounding situation would mean acknowledging that the Church,
more or less, 'hijacked' the Messianic tradition by force for power and
control. But the Church simply did not, and still does not, have
the 'right' to claim any kind of divine authority. This explains
why the Church has been so paranoid about 'heretics' throughout its history.
The Church committed the first genocide in modern European history
with the Albigensian Crusade (early 13th century in southern France).
They exterminated the peaceful Albigensians (men, women, and children)
only because their dualistic and gnostic ideas did not conform to the (artificial)
teachings of the Church.
It can be said that those 'christians', including the Albigensians,
who the Church tried so hard to suppress and erase from history were the
people of 'Grail' tradition who knew better than to accept the dogma and
the authority of the Church. And fortunately the 'underground stream'
of Grail tradition survived the merciless aggression and still exist today
in various forms (the United States itself, as a country, could be viewed
as the continuation of the tradition, though it's not explicit).
The recurrent 'resurrection' symbolism we see around us now can be seen
as a foreshadow of the underground tradition finally coming out to the
surface to tell its story. And the bubble, which is what the empty
structure of the Church is, would have to burst. Year 2000 is likely
the beginning of this painful but unavoidable and necessary process.
The "bug" in the system is to be faced in Y2K.
A lot of people have emailed me asking why the web site has not been updated
for a long time. One reason is, with the Aug. 16-8 'window', my specific
'key dates' presented in my '1999' articles ended (though there
still was the more general summer-fall '99 time frame) and therefore I
did not need to specifically evaluate my past work thereafter. Another
reason is just that I've been pretty busy working on a project. Also,
what I've been doing off-line (still related to the material on this site)
has become much further ahead of the online stuff here that it's becoming
increasingly difficult to balance the two.
A lot of events occurred since the last update, but let me comment on
only those immediately relevant to my material or those I just find interesting:
First, the imaging of Cydonia scheduled for Aug. 26... Errr... No
one has yet seen the pictures and no one seems to be sure what happened.
Wonder what will happen with the next imaging opportunity, Nov. 21...
Then we had the disappearance
of Mars Climate Orbiter upon arriving at Mars
(paralleling the fate of Mars Orbiter) on Sept 23. What happened?
NASA tells us that they confused metric and Imperial measuring systems...
Hehehehe. Recall that the same organization assured people that it
was virtually impossible for Cassini to malfunction and collide with the
earth. Are these "rocket scientists" idiots or are they lying or...
well, there are many possibilities, but indications are strong that something
funny is going on.
Recently there was a news
story about a possible discovery of a planet beyond Pluto orbiting
our sun. Those familiar with Zacharia Sitchin were of course quick
to associate it with the "12th Planet". The '12th Planet' association
aside (being no fan of Sitchin myself), it is a very intriguing possibility.
On Oct. 12, one of the leading news
in US was the death of the basketball legend, Wilt Chamberlain. I
find this symbolically quite significant because of the combination of
the date - just a day before, or on (in other part of the world) the key
'Templar date' of Oct. 13 (the date on which the Knights Templar met the
end of its 'official' existence), and Chamberlain's nickname 'The Big Dipper'.
The 'Big Dipper' is part of the constellation Ursa Maj. (the 'Great Bear')
and it, as discussed numerous times before, relates to the Grail/Ark just
as the Templars also do. The death of "The Big Dipper" more or less
coinciding with the date of the Templar's demise is therefore symbolically
Now something about the future. It appears that the period around
the end of 1999 is to resonate strongly with my 'projections' in '1999:
The Ark of Sirius'. The future I 'projected' concerned two
main themes: the appearance of Sirius C and
the fall of the pope (accompanied or followed
by big troubles for the Church). At least one of those two is now
scheduled to occur at the very end of the year 1999. Not surprisingly,
this apparent fulfillment is to be of metaphoric nature. On New Year's
Eve, a gilded capstone is planned to be placed on the top of the Great
Pyramid. This could be viewed as the appearance of Sirius C because
according to The Sirius Mystery (1998 edition - which I don't have but
'justina' was kind enough to email me the following information from the
new edition of the book):
On page 31, there is a passage taken from Daniel Benest and J.L. Duvent's
1995 article "Is Sirius a Triple Star," that says Sirius C cannot be much
more than about 0.05% of the mass of the sun (and of Sirius B). Using
one of the simple length measures of the kind which seemed to indicate
the relative masses of Sirius B and our sun, the mass of Sirius C may be
indicated by the height of the missing pyramidion of the Great Pyramid.
For it was 31 feet and the original height of the pyramidion was 0.0643
of the total height of the pyramid, corresponding to within 0.01 of the
0.05 of solar mass suggested for Sirius C in 1995.
While I don't quite follow the reasoning of the above, it's clear that
Sirius C is being associated with the capstone of the Great Pyramid - thus
the placing of a capstone on the Great Pyramid would nicely represents
the appearance of Sirius C!
Now, in '1999: The Ark of Sirius' I stated: "If the Sirius
'light display' of this kind and the Church schism are to occur, they will
likely coincide with each other timing-wise." I find it rather
troubling that this synchronization is seemingly underway as the pope is
now tentatively scheduled to visit Iraq, a dangerous place I'd say, in
December - especially in light of the following quatrain:
Romain Pontife garde de t'approcher,
De la cite' qui deux fleuues arrouse,
Ton sang viendra aupres de la cracher
Toy & les tiens quand fleurira la rose.
Roman Pontiff beware of approaching
The city that two rivers flow through,
Near there your blood will come to spurt,
You and yours when the rose will flourish.
Iraq is noted for its two major rivers, the Euphrates and the Tigris.
But not only that, the pope is said to be eager to visit Ur, the city of
Abraham, near the confluence of the two rivers.
Another element that adds to the the possibility of the December synchronization
is the information provided by Joseph McMoneagle, the former military/SRI
remote viewer with an impressive documented track record (in other words,
he is no Ed Dames, for those who only knows RV from listening to Art Bell)
in his book 'The Ultimate Time Machine' ('98). On page 169,
we read "The current pope will die late in the year of 1999."
Note that the timing, December/January, does not necessarily conflict
with the first line of X-72 (the '1999' quatrain) "L'an mil neuf cens
nonante neuf sept mois" as it can be interpreted to read '1999, month
of Sirius' (since Sirius was called 'Sept' in Egypt, etc.) and December/January
is to be the 'month(s) of Sirius C'.
While I know better than to insist on the literal fulfillment of the
projection, it seems to me that the potential is building. And let
me add lastly, that the placing of the capstone, Sirius, as we enter the
year 2000 also correlates to the theme of Mary Magdalene (who can be viewed
as a version of Isis/Sirius) as the number '2000' in Roman numeral is MM
- her initials, interesting enough.
A lot has happened since the previous update. First, the remarkable
eclipse on Aug. 11. This event coincided with the
shooting incident, by a Nazi/Hitler-inspired
white-supremacist, in some Jewish community in US (8/10-11) making the
This is yet another case conforming to my '1999/X-72 model' which has been
showing an on-going pattern with the theme of Nazi/Hitler etc.
As for the projected 'resurrection date' of 8/13-14 (see previous
update), I personally did not see any 'resonance' there. So... that
was somewhat surprising. Perhaps the date 8/13 had become too much
of public knowledge (because of the Aztec calendar connection) for the
'resonance' to manifest but much more subtly (as in my model, the level
of general awareness amongst the populace affects the level of directness
of the manifestation of the cosmically directed archetypal, symbolic concepts).
But then, the eclipse date of 8/11, a very obvious time-marker, yielded
a quite strong resonance (i.e. the shooting incident, etc.), so...
I'm not sure.
Next up is the key date, Aug. 16 - the date suggested from
various angles (see '1999: Ark'). First, the headline news
in US was students returning
to Columbine high school where the massacre
occurred on Hitler's birthday earlier this year - thus reinforcing its
While the other key date initially was Aug. 18, since the date was dependent
on the Cassini-flyby date, which somehow shifted a little to Aug. 17 (around
11:30pm Eastern US time) for those in America though not for other countries,
it had become more fitting to view the 3 days, Aug. 16-8, as a 'window'.
And this window of course yielded the horrendous earthquake
disaster in Turkey (8/17 local time, 8/16
American time) that apparently killed more than 20,000 people (!), immediately
followed by the Cassini
flyby. So, the key date(s) seem to be 'answered' but how does
the earthquake relate to the on-going 'pattern', apart from the date?
First, there is the epicenter, Izmit, being located at about 40.8 N (Cydonia
latitude), and well... I think that's enough for now. The other links
are too complicated and based on a model has not yet appeared on this site.
Since some people seem to be confused, let me clarify something here.
I never predicted that Cassini would crash into Earth. In fact, my
model tended to assume that it would not crash. All the theories
about Cassini crashing into the earth are by some (no so bright) prophecy
enthusiasts out there. Not me. Even though I started discussing
Cassini pretty much before anybody else in '97. Actually I should
get an award for associating Cassini with X-72 for so long without
theorizing its crash like most others who later made the association did!
Let's see... Venus is currently "covered
by the sun" and going retrograde - both are potentially significant as
explained in '1999: FS' and '1999: Ark' respectively. There are actually
things occurring that may relate to these. But I'll wait a little
more before I comment on that.
What else... Oh, I recently read that Isis is celebrated on July 23
(can anyone confirm this?) - which of course perfectly completes the Columbia-Sirius/Isis/Magdalene
connection (see previous update). Also, another key date that coincided
with the completion of the Tour de France (see previous update), July
25, happened to coincide with the Magdalene parade in southern France
(St Maximin in Provence) as well, which annually takes place on a Sunday
nearest to July 22 the feast day of the Magdalene (so July 25 in '99).
The last total solar eclipse of the century
is about to occur on Aug. 11, and it is getting much attention of the world,
especially Europe which has the best view of the big celestial event.
The solar eclipse, traditionally an ominous sign, occurring in the midst
of the 'window' of X-72, is of course symbolically very fitting.
And furthermore, it is also accompanied by an astrological 'grand cross'
occurring in the sky.
How does this 'omen' fit into my model, or does it? Until recently
I had not been particularly that interested in this astronomical/astrological
'sign', but now I've noticed some intriguing connections that are meaningful
in the context of my developing '1999' model. Namely, they will involve
the recurrent motifs of Osiran/Saturnian resurrection, Isis/Sirius, Grail,
It is said that when Osiris, a central figure in the '1999/X-72
saga', died the sun turned black (i.e. a 'black sun'), thus creating an
eclipse association. The 'grand cross' also relates to Osiris as
the cross was an Osiran symbol. Traditionally, the death of Osiris
occurred on a Friday, and he was resurrected three days later. Sounds
familiar? Yes, it is very similar to the story of Jesus' crucifixion
(on a Friday) and resurrection (Sunday). The 'cross' allusion of
course strengthens the connection. As if this weren't enough, we
also find a likely reference to the darkening sun ('back sun' => solar
eclipse) in the story of Jesus' crucifixion. The Bible tells us that
at noon of the day of the crucifixion there was an anomalous period of
darkness (Mark 15:33, Matt. 27:45), and Jesus is said to have cried out
from the cross 'Eli, Eli [or 'Eloi Eloi'], lama sabachthani?' ('My
God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?'). The potential allusion
to a solar eclipse by the strange daytime "darkness" is reinforced by the
strong possibility that the word 'Eli/Eloi' was actually 'Helios' the sun
god (as suggested in 'The Foreigner' by Desmond Stewart, etc.),
thus what Jesus supposedly said would be 'Oh sun, oh sun, why hast thou
The Osiris-Jesus link can also be seen in one of Osiris' epithets, 'Chrestos'
- closely resembling Christos/Christ ('The Foreigner' p77).
But why does the close parallel exist between the two figures that seemingly
have nothing in common otherwise? The likely answer probably disturbs
many christians: The parallel exists because Jesus was an initiate
of the ancient Egyptian religion who was deliberately, but without telling
his exoteric/uninitiated disciples, reenacting the story of Osiris and
Isis (Isis "played" by Mary Magdalene), as discussed in depth in 'The
Templar Revelation' by Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince. Much of
Christian tradition today actually came from ancient Egypt.
At any rate, interestingly if the total eclipse on Wednesday marks the
death of Osiris/Jesus, we get Friday as the day of 'resurrection'
(though I'm not sure if Osiris' resurrection 'three days' after his death
would actually point to Saturday instead). This coming Friday, interestingly
enough, will be a 'Friday the 13th' (which the legendary arrest of the
Templar on Oct. 13, 1307 also was), and the very same date, 8/13/99, is
said to be a crucial date according to the Aztec
calendar. So, I'm more interested in that date of 'resurrection'
than the the day of the eclipse itself.
It also needs to be added that the path of the total eclipse goes through
England, France, etc. that are places closely associated with the Grail
I've discussed here previously how the space shuttle
Columbia with the 'Chandra' telescope relates to Sirius/Isis through
the date July 20 - the originally scheduled date for launch. Now
it has come to my attention that the re-scheduled date for Columbia's launch,
July 22, (also postponed due to weather) was the feast day of Mary Magdalene
(who is actually identifiable with Isis)! It seems likely that the
strange cancellation of the July 20 launch at literally the last second
was to 'mark' both the 'Sirius/Isis day' (July 20) and the 'Magdalene day'
(July 22), and link them together - which would be esoterically/symbolically
potent and meaningful. Yet, of course, the shuttle wasn't launched
until July 23 - this was perhaps accidental (i.e. bad weather interfering
with the 'plan'). But the fact that the date of the launch coincided
with the "Mass of
Resurrection" of JFK Jr. suggests it was too planned.
On July 25, one of the key dates listed in my '1999:
The Ark of Sirius', the United States' Lance Armstrong won
the 1999 Tour de France. This one is
filled with symbolisms... First, the country France is central to
the legend of the Holy Grail. Its capital Paris, shown to be very
important in '1999: Ark', was where the finale of the Tour de France
took place on July 25. The actual goal in Paris was non other than
the Arc de Triomphe / Champs-Elysées - whose significance should
be obvious to those who read '1999: Ark' and/or 'The Elysian
Fields'! And the champion being the American, Armstrong...
well, of course it's the continuation of the Apollo11/Moon symbolism (involving
JFK Jr., shuttle Columbia, etc.) through the association with (Neil) Armstrong,
the first man, American, to walk on the moon!
It was announced
that Britain is going to launch a space probe 'Beagle Two' to Mars,
arriving in 2003, to investigate the possibility of life on Mars. The name
"Beagle Two" is said to be named after the ship on which Charles Darwin
came up the theory of evolution. Now... why would they want
to directly associate a Mars probe with the theory of evolution?
Unless of course, "they" are subliminally hinting that Mars had, or will
have, something to do with our evolution.
Speaking of Mars, NASA's Mars Global Surveyor
is scheduled to take pictures of the Cydonia
region on Aug. 26 and Nov. 21. The timing is perfect with regard
to my '1999 model', as I hypothesized in '1999:
FS' that MGS might image the region of Cydonia during the time
period of July-Aug.-Sept. '99 which might reveal or further suggest the
artificiality of the infamous structures there.
A little more about the symbolic significance of the JFK
Jr. plane crash: As mentioned before, the incident was the
continuation and confirmation of the airplane-Grail/Ark pattern discussed
in '1999: The Ark of Sirius'. A new piece of data further
corroborates this view: JFK Jr. was sometimes called the 'Prince
of Camelot' (though I don't know why exactly), and of course 'Camelot'
figures prominently in the tale of King Arthur - in which we find
the story of the quest for the Holy Grail.
So, since this event of the JFK Jr. plane crash occurred in July, the
"seventh month", one might wonder whether this was the fulfillment of the
infamous X-72 quatrain. Since my approach doesn't focus on just single
event but look at the grand underlying pattern of events, I don't point
to one event and identify it as the fulfillment of this or that
quatrain/prophecy. But I will say that the event does have a quite
direct correlation to X-72, especially the often-quoted second line "From
the sky will come a great 'King of terror', because the Gaelic word
'uther' which is linked with the name 'Arthur' (=> JFK Jr.) means 'terrible'.
In other words, the JFK Jr. plane crash can be described as: 'terrible
prince/king came down from the sky', i.e. the Line 2 of X-72.
Then one naturally wonders how the next line, "To resurrect
the great King of Angolmois", would fit into this scenario. The
"To resurrect the great King" part can be correlated with the date
of the crash, July 16, being the date of Apollo 11's historic launch -
the culmination of the space program initiated by the father of the prince
(JFK Jr.), President Kennedy, the "great King". As mentioned before,
'Apollo' could be seen as the Greek counterpart of the Egyptian sun-god
Horus, the son of Osiris/Orion (note that the patch
of the Apollo program showed the constellation of Orion); and upon
death the Horus-king (i.e. Pharaoh) was considered to become Osiris.
In other words, the death of Horus (JFK Jr.) can be seen as the rebirth/resurrection
of Osiris (JFK). Thus, the death of JFK Jr. 'resurrected the great
King', his father (JFK/Osiris), fittingly on the date 7/16 on which
the fulfillment of the father's dream (i.e. Apollo 11 mission) began.
To strengthen this view, let me reference the Egyptian 'opening of
the mouth' ritual which involved the new Horus-king opening the mouth
of the mummified dead king. In the ritual, the son(s) of the dead
king splits open the mouth of the king using a metallic tool ('adze') to
free/resurrect the soul (i.e. resurrection of Osiris). And the shape
of the adze has been linked to the constellation Ursa Major or Minor.
Recall that Ursa Major figured in my '1999: Ark of Sirius' in conjunction
with the theme of 'ark'. Also, it should be pointed out that Ursa
Major/Minor is the celestial 'bears', and 'bear' happens to be what the
name 'Arthur' ('arth') may have derived from. Furthermore, Beta Ursa
Minor happens to be where the northern 'air shaft' of the Great Pyramid's
Queen's Chamber (see 'The Orion Mystery' or 'The Message of the
Sphinx' by Bauval w/ Gilbert/Hancock) was targeted toward in the Pyramid
Age c. 2500 BC (the other shaft from Queen's Chamber on the south side
is targeted toward Sirius - another key theme). Additionally, as
Bauval/Gilbert point out, the shape of the northern shaft resembles the
shape of the sacred adze. It seems from the strong correlation that
I have to bring back the issue of '39' that has been deleted from the 7/17
update (see previous update for detail). The angle of the Queen's
Chamber's northern shaft is 39 degrees, and even though JFK Jr. was 38
years old, he was living his '39'th year thus in this way matching the
Now, as for 'Angolmois' of Line 3, I found a web
page that provided an intriguing interpretation of the word - that
'Angolmois' is an anagram for 'sang lion' (French) meaning' 'blood of the
lion'. And that would again refer to the Holy Grail, the blood of
Jesus - which in turn represents the Davidic bloodline, and David is of
Judah which was symbolized by the 'lion', thus the 'blood of the lion'.
Seeing all these connections, I'm very curious at this point as to whether
the bloodline of the Kennedys is linked to the Messianic branches in Europe
(coming from the Merovingians).
The spaceshuttle Columbia scheduled to be
launched on the key Sirian date, July 20, was delayed and lifted
off early July 23. This is not unexpected and that is why I carefully
used the phrase "attaching a special space mission to [the date July 20]"
in my 7/7 Update to indicate that the shuttle does
not necessarily have to be launched on that date but that the scheduling
itself is significant enough.
The main mission of this shuttle was the deployment of the Chandra X-ray
observatory - one of the most powerful space observatories ever put into
orbit. The name 'Chandra' appears to continue the reference to the
Apollo mission (recall that the name of the first-ever woman commander,
Eileen, is derived from a word meaning 'sun' => Apollo the sun god) as
'Chandra' means 'moon'.
Instead of spaceshuttle Columbia, the NASA July 20 "ritual" was done with
the Liberty Bell space capsule that came
out of the water after spending 38 years at the bottom of the
Atlantic Ocean. This correlates with the resurrection of the Saturnian
realm or "Atlantis" discussed in my '1999: Final Solution'.
It is also interesting that Colombia's Independence
Day is July 20. The name "Colombia" almost matching
the name of the spaceshuttle 'Columbia' (pronounced the same and derived
from the same root word 'Columbus', well at least that's the 'official'
claim), and both would relate to 'Columba' the dove of Noah's Ark as mentioned
before. Interestingly, one of the most important rivers in Colombia
is named 'Magdalena', an obvious reference to Mary Magdalene (=>
Grail, as discussed before, and comparable to Isis/Sirius). And one
of its major cities is named 'Medellin' - also a likely reference to the
Magdalene (as the name 'Madeline' is derived from Magdalene).
Correction: JFK Jr. was not 39 years old as I indicated in previous
update, but actually 38 years old (as he was born on Nov. 25, '60).
A news report I heard stated that he was 39 yrs. old and that confused
me even though I checked his birth day (apparently carelessly). To
avoid creating further confusion, I've deleted the inaccurate information
from the previous update.
JFK Jr.'s plane apparently crashed
on July 16... It's the exact date Apollo 11 was launched for
the first moon landing 30 years ago, which was a goal initiated by JFK
Jr.'s father President Kennedy (the moon-landing itself took place on the
key Sirian date, July 20). July 16 is also the date Comet Shoemaker-Levy
9 began colliding with Jupiter in '94. It should also be noted
that July 17 (note that in other parts of the world it was already July
17th) was the date of the TWA 800 crash in '96 which also occurred
near NYC/Long Island. Reinforcing those associations is the
fact that the first atomic explosion of the 'Manhattan Project' (=> NYC)
occurred on the same date, July 16 ('45). JFK Jr.'s plane was headed
for Martha's Vineyard, northeast of Long Island - as I've mentioned some
months ago, 'vineyard' (or grape/wine/vine) is associated with bloodline,
especially the Messianic one, i.e. the "Grail". The "Martha"
part is also seemingly relevant as it could mean 'lady' which would esoterically
relatable to 'Our Lady', Mary Magdalene, through whom Jesus' bloodline
is theorized to have been perpetuated.
In case you're confused by the associations above, all those (i.e. TWA
800/plane crashes, Apollo 11, SL-9, NYC, Grail, July 20, Sirius, etc.)
are topics already discussed and correlated in my past writings ('Babylon
Matrix', '1999: FS', or '1999: Ark of Sirius').
Therefore, this event of JFK Jr. plane crash is being viewed as the continuation/confirmation
of the symbolic motifs. Notice, in particular, that in '1999:
The Ark of Sirius' I specifically discussed the symbolic significance
of plane crashes.
LOL! They couldn't do it! NASA
just could not go by the key Sirian date, July 20,
without attaching a special space mission to it. Sure it's becoming
very predictable (just as I pointed out date as a key date associated with
NASA in 'The
Ark of Sirius' recently for example, and also just read the previous
update below), but hey this is the "seventh month" of 1999 - it had to
be done :) The NASA mission I'm talking about is the space
shuttle Columbia scheduled to be launched July 20, which will "make
history" as it will be the first U.S. space mission with a woman
commander (note that this relates to Sirius/Isis as Isis is the archetypal
female figure). Of course they have a nice cover explanation of 7/20/99
being the 30th anniversary of the first moon landing - but which was also
based on the same Sirius connection anyway.
Note that the name of the woman commander, Eileen, comes from Greek
helios ('sun') which matches the name of the mission to the moon, Apollo,
which is also a sun god. The name of the shuttle 'Columbia' is the
continuation of the Ark theme ('Columba' the dove associated with
Noah's ark) - so this space shuttle mission on the Sirian date can be nicely
described as 'The Ark of Sirius'! Oh, and also 'Helen', a
form of which is Eileen, is the name of a woman whose kidnapping by Paris
was the cause of the Trojan War. 'Paris' is of course a big theme
in 'The Ark of Sirius' also.
On/around another key date July 4 (see 'Ark
of Sirius' etc.), the leading news was the deadly Independence Day
weekend drive-by shooting
rampage by a white supremacist who killed himself on the night of July
4 at Salem, Illinois. This can be associated with the good ol' Nazi-theme.
I'd also like to point out that 'Salem', the name of the town, would mean
'peace' just as Jeru-salem (Urusalim) can be understood as 'foundation
of peace'. Do you see a rough parallel between this incident and
the coming destruction of Mir (= 'peace')?
I've been meaning to mention this for some time, but the on-going and increasingly
in Kashmir between India and Pakistan correlates
very nicely to the associative matrix of 'Ark/Grail'
as Kashmir is the very location where the tomb of Jesus, who is intimately
associated with ark/grail, supposedly resides according to some tradition.
Therefore I think it's no coincidence that Kashmir is making noise
at this particular time. Notice also that the southern apex of the
land of India marks exactly 77 E longitude (for the significance
of '77', see '1999: Final Solution').
And finally, the big theme of 'Nazis/Hitler' derived from X-72 (the
'1999' quatrain) is being reinforced right now as the capital of Germany
moving back to Berlin and the government
is making the transition over this summer. This means Bonn served
as the capital for 50 years - and '50' is a key Sirian # (see 'Ark
of Sirius'). The first
wave of government officials left Bonn for Berlin on July 4th
(US time). Also, apparently the symbol of Berlin is 'bear' (=> correlates
with the name 'Arthur' => Grail) and it was reported
that Teddy bears with "Welcome to Berlin" T-shirts greeted 77 ('77'
again) government employees arriving in Berlin on the first chartered planes.
So here we are finally in the "seventh month"
of 1999. And expectedly, people all over the world are starting to
talk about Nostradamus. I was informed recently that the URL of my
web site was listed in an article in "The Times" of London (which I'm told
is a major newspaper). I'm aware of a number of other publications
that had articles on Nostradamus, and I'm sure there will be much more
this month. But someone has to tell those guys that the indicated
month is not necessarily July. As explained in my writings on this
subject, it can easily be August or September.
I'm already very tired of people talking about comets/asteroids hitting
earth, or questioning "Is the world really going to end?". I can
tell you that you don't have to worry about those things because - do you
really think 'reality' is so simple that people can predict beforehand
what is to come? Remember that comets/asteroids, "end of the world",
etc. are only people's (very lazy) interpretations. And people
are generally not intelligent enough (not even close) to interpret esoteric
symbolism effectively. So if people are saying "X is going to happen!",
you can see that as a big sign that it won't :)
It appears that NASA is at it again.
It is reported
that NASA "will set off its own Independence Day fireworks during a series
of nighttime rocket launches from July 2 to 20, 1999" which is designed
to study "space weather". And:
"Two of the experiment packages will release a chemical that will form
large glowing clouds in space. These
luminescent milky-white clouds should be visible to the naked eye for several
hundred miles from the launch site, encompassing the mid-Atlantic region
and portions of the northeastern and southeastern United States."
Very ritualistic, I'd say. I wonder if these 'glowing clouds' have
something to do with the "cloud" of Quatrain II-41 which is discussed in
'1999: The Ark of Sirius' and is linked to Sirius the 'Dog Star' - and
'Dog Days' are in July (July 20 being the most significant).
On the key date June 24 mentioned in previous
update, the Cassini Venus-flyby occurred (I
had forgotten about it). Now the space probe is headed toward Earth.
(It's inevitable that this will get a lot of media/public attention.)
Also on June 24, Israel and Hezbollah guerrillas
in Lebanon exchanged
firepower which resulted in several deaths. This might be a sign
of what is to come in the near future.
