Tale of Two Rivers
historical importance of the Tigris-Euphrates river rivals that of
the Nile. Just as the Nile
gave rise to the great ancient Egyptian civilization, so did the Tigris-Euphrates
to Sumer in Mesopotamia (modern Iraq),
the first high civilization in history.
there is a hidden connection between the Nile and the
initially hinted by the latitudinal position of the latter’s mouth. It
is at 30°N exactly – the
very latitude of the Nile’s ‘edge’ marked by Giza/Cairo! This
means the Mesopotamian river’s mouth is in precise alignment with the
Great Sphinx’s eternal gaze which is fixed on the distant horizon due
This subsequently leads to the following
- The arrangement of the Tigris-Euphrates –
two roughly parallel and diagonal rivers – resembles that of
the Blue Nile and the Atbara.
Tigris-Euphrates’ northernmost region overlaps the Taurus
mountain range, perfectly echoing the Nile tributaries’
northernmost region coinciding with the ‘Age of Taurus’

and the Euphrates ‘were but different portions of the same

correspondences unmistakably hint at some kind of
‘geographical transposition’ scheme. This is even
acknowledged in ancient myth:
Nile’s Taurus Age section and the Taurus
Mountain in Turkey are both associated with the saga of the
‘fallen angels’ (the ‘Watchers’, ‘Nephilim’, or ‘Anunnaki’)
and the ‘Great Flood’.
passages in Genesis relating to the
‘Garden of Eden’ reveal a
clear link between the Nile tributaries and the Tigris-Euphrates.
5 is supported by the work of researcher Andrew Collins who has come
to the conclusion, as detailed in his book From
the Ashes of Angels, that the homeland of the
Watchers (‘fallen angels’) – analogous to Eden –
was situated around the headwaters of the Tigris-Euphrates in
Turkish Kurdistan. He also found that the same location is
where ancient tradition pinpoints as the landing site of the Ark (of Noah).
how are the ‘fallen angels’ and the Ark related to the Nile’s Taurus
section? The answer here is quite interesting. First, the ‘Taurus’
region around the Great Bend is very much associated with the notion of a
flood, and by extension the Ark, because the Nile’s annual
inundation was caused by the Blue Nile and Atbara that join the main
stream there. The Great Bend being a ‘great arc’ adds
more weight to the connection in that the words ‘ark’ and
‘arc’ likely derive from the same root.
for the ‘fallen angels’, the connection is made through Prometheus,
the Greek god who gave ‘fire’ to mankind. Prometheus is the
embodiment of the rebel angels. This then leads to the following:
if in allusion to the Bend, Prometheus is closely associated
with the idea of ‘churning’, ‘twisting’, or
‘turning’. For instance, the ‘mantha’ part of the
Sanskrit term Pramantha
(i.e. Prometheus) has the meaning of ‘churning’.
Vedic fire-god Agni, a form of pramantha,
is said to come from the confluence
of the rivers as if
in reference to the Nilotic confluences (Khartoum and Atbara) of
the Great Bend section.
is associated with the mythological character Heimdal/Hallinskidi/Vindler whose name is said to mean ‘a bent, bowed, or slanted
and ‘to twist, turn, etc.’ (Vindler)
– seemingly alluding to the Great Bend.
is an even more striking basis for Point 6 – i.e. the Eden
connection – as discussed below.
Four Rivers of Eden
region around the Tigris-Euphrates’ headwaters is the site of Eden
which according to Genesis was connected to four rivers, two of
which were the Euphrates and Tigris. The identities of the other two
– called ‘Pishon’ and ‘Gihon’ – have not been
conclusively determined by scholars.
As we examine the relevant
biblical passage in Genesis (2:10-14) with the foregoing findings in mind, however, it becomes clear that
the two mystery rivers are none
other than the Blue Nile and the Atbara!
A river rises in Eden to
water the garden; outside, it forms four separate branch streams.
The name of the first is Pishon; it is the one that winds through
the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold… The name of the
second river is Gihon; it is the one that winds through all of the
land of Cush. The name of the third river is Tigris; it is the one
that flows east of Asshur. The fourth river is the Euphrates.
is this ‘land of Cush’ through which the Gihon river is said to
flow? The shocking answer here is made plain in the King James
Version of the Bible, according to which the Gihon winds through the
‘land of Ethiopia’ – that is, the land of the Nile
tributaries! This is a rather blatant clue, and yet it was never understood until now.
the ‘land of Cush’ more accurately refers to the ancient kingdom of
Cush (or Kush) that existed in Nubia as early as 2000 BC.
Nubia closely corresponds to the Nile’s Taurus (Great Bend) region where Eden
would be if the Tigris-Euphrates was ‘transposed’! And this is
exactly where the Nile indeed ‘winds’ - i.e. the Great
Bend - just
as described in the Genesis passage!
other Eden river in question called the ‘Pishon’ is also described as ‘winding’. But here it is said that the Pishon
winds through the land ‘where there is gold’. Could this relate
in any way to the same region of Nubia/Cush? The answer is
definitely yes. To the
Egyptians, Nubia was known primarily as a land of gold!
top it off, Graham Hancock informs us in The
Sign and the Seal that ‘the Abyssinians themselves firmly
believed the Blue Nile to be nothing less than the Gihon of Genesis
2:13… [and this] was a very old tradition’; in fact, ‘the twin
springs regarded as the source of [the Blue Nile] are known to this
day as Giyon by the
it can be confidently concluded here that the ‘Gihon’ is the
Blue Nile and the ‘Pishon’ the Atbara. The four rivers of Eden
have thus been all identified for the first time in known
history. They are the Euphrates, Tigris, Blue Nile, and Atbara.
is now practically undeniable that the Nile tributaries and the
Tigris-Euphrates are portions of the same scheme and are designed to
interact. This realization leads to the next big revelation –
Smoking Gun: Overlay
is revealed when the two ‘Eden river’ systems are brought
together in superimposition. This is when we realize that we are looking at the ‘fingerprints of the
best way to describe the ‘impossible’
the paths of the two river systems do not match exactly. But we discover
that the Tigris and Euphrates do manage to cross the two Nile confluences
simultaneously (Khartoum and Atbara) in one particular position.
And this is just the beginning. We
find next that, while still in the same position, the Euphrates’
northern path precisely ‘touches’ the peak of the Great
Bend at 19.5°N 33.0 E!
In other words, in
fixed overlay configuration, the Tigris-Euphrates manages to
simultaneously pinpoint all three key points of the Nile’s Taurus
section! And don't forget that this configuration is something
strongly encouraged by the two rivers’ ‘Taurus’
is still not all. We discover next that the Euphrates’ Bend-contact
point was originally at 39.6°N latitude. Recall that ‘39.6°’ is the exact
angle of the Great Pyramid’s southern-lower shaft designed to
align with Sirius in c. 2350 BC – i.e. the very date assigned to
the Great Bend’s apex! (Note also that Sirius and the Great
Bend are both linked to the Nile inundation.)
are additional observations to intensify the coherence of
the overlay configuration:
already mentioned, the
mountain region directly overlaps the Nile’s Taurus-Age section.
Tigris and the Euphrates very closely follow the Atbara and the
Blue Nile respectively near the Nile junctions.
Judi – the traditional resting place of the Ark – nearly
Tigris-Euphrates’ mouth (originally at 30°N) appears to rest
on the Nile’s 10°N parallel, the very latitude accentuated
by the Blue Nile’s W-shaped double bend.
Tana is seen situated in southern Mesopotamia and in between the two
rivers – i.e. exactly where the Sumerian civilization resided.
For the overlay configuration, the Nile’s longitude 33.0°E running through the Bend-Euphrates contact point
is used as the ‘anchor meridian’, to which the
is aligned. See Appendix 2 for more on

is even an ancient Egyptian drawing - shown below - that appears to allude to the
overlay interaction. It is a depiction of the ‘Primeval

of the iceberg. This is the beginning of a forbidden tale now finally

key thing that has become abundantly clear from the findings presented in this
paper is that there is a higher intelligence monitoring - or even
guiding - the evolution of mankind, and that we are not ‘alone’.
But what are we talking about
answer does not come easily. But what we now know for sure is that we are
not the supreme ruler of our domain as many of us had arrogantly assumed. All
history - the past, present, and even future - is already mapped out and carved in stone, quite literally.
But the difficulty we encounter here is the emerging necessity to imagine someone or something that is intelligent and
powerful enough to have produced such a planetary-scale ‘time
are, however, not totally faceless. For example, we do find clues in certain ancient
Mesopotamian texts. These describe god-like beings
called the ‘Anunnaki’
designing and digging out the courses
of the Tigris-Euphrates (which is even associated with ‘destinies’):
that the destinies of Heaven and Earth have been fixed,
and canal have been given their right courses,
banks of the Tigris and the Euphrates have been established...
[Oh Anunnaki, you great gods of the sky, what else shall we do?]
Anunnaki of the sky
the Igigi bear the workload.
gods had to dig out canals,
to clear channels, the lifelines of the land...
gods dug out the Tigris river (bed)
then dug out the Euphrates.
we are told that the god named Enlil was ‘in charge of the gods who toiled
endlessly away day and night, year after year, digging out the
Euphrates and the Tigris’.
It is also written that, to keep the Tigris’ waters from going
east into the mountains, the ‘lord directed (his) great
intelligence to it’ and built a dike to control the river’s
message in a bottle from the ‘Anunnaki’
gods - this seems to be what the Time River system represents. And
the indications are that the intended recipient is those living in the
the 21st century, i.e. us. After all, it wouldn’t
make much sense if history ended before anyone has read the message,
and we are already part of the last generations facing the imminent arrival of the ‘end of time’

is quite synchronistic
that the author’s
book The Time Rivers came out in 2003 to reveal the Time
River scheme to the general public, because 2003
happens to be the year of the Earth’s
encounter with Mars - the closest in recorded history. As
discussed in the book,
the ‘edge of time’ (c. AD 2100) turns out to be inseparable from
the Red Planet. Consider this for instance: the Great
Sphinx there, the guardian of Giza, had the same name as
Mars in ancient Egypt; and the name of the present Egyptian capital right next to Giza, Cairo, denotes ‘Mars’.
Mars is actually the main theme carried
by the entire Time River system. The Red Planet, it appears,
represents none other
than the realm of our own Genesis and destiny. It
signifies an essential, but secret, part of who we are, where
we came from, and where we are going.
