SECRETS OF THE LOUNGE
Have you ever wondered about the link that won't open on the front of Rumor Mill News? The one that says RMNews Agents Lounge? Have you ever wondered what goes on in there?
RMN SPECIAL REPORT ON THE UKRAINE
The Lounge is a place where RMNews Agents pool their knowledge and try to figure out what's going on in the world.
Here is our first attempt at collaboration. What you will read was patched together by TheMythSmith, from the writings of many different RMNews Agents.
Hope you enjoy the Secrets of the Lounge
World tensions are addressed in one very simple, basic, and timeless question:
CAN HUMANITY ACHIEVE SELF-GOVERNANCE
Perhaps this question appropriately names the inquiry RMN Agents have pursued collaboratively during the month of December 2004.
In a single thread of Subject headers that would fill many pages of hardcopy, a repository of information and interpretations was developed. It covers a broad diversity of topics and themes relating to today's Ukraine.
My attempt to present this repository of information and interpretation fails to include the full value that was gathered. For this I do apologize, and rely on the RMN team to provide additions where that is seen to be necessary. Some of the most succinct contributions to the repository are given below in the words of the agents.
Here, starting with some 'dry history', is my attempt to summarize our compilation on the Ukraine.
UKRAINE IS WHAT POLAND WAS BEFORE AND DURING WWII.
Today's nation of Ukraine is the westernmost extent of the Caucasus. Considered together with the nations of the Middle East, this part of the planet has been the scene of the greatest social, religious, political, and economic perturbations in the written history. Against the backdrop of this turbulent history, this agent's comment points to a stark contrast in the present situation in Ukraine:
"A big clue could be that the people on the streets now don't allow provocation of violence - as this could have been the real goal of the men behind the curtains."
Indeed, this observation may very well say it best. There is much more material below that bolsters this view.
UKRAINE COAT OF ARMS
The term 'Ukraine' originated some time in the 11th century. It was originally a geographic term meaning 'borderland'. At that time, Ukraine was synonymous with Rus proper (Rus Propria) or Malo Rus (lesser Rus). The term Ruthenian originally meant 'Rus', but later applied only to West Ukrainians (Galicians). Originally it was a term often applied to the Rus by Europeans (Poles, Germans and Turks especially).
CIA FACT BOOK ON UKRAINE:
Ukraine was the center of the first Slavic state, Kievan Rus, which during the 10th and 11th centuries was the largest and most powerful state in Europe. Weakened by internecine quarrels and Mongol invasions, Kievan Rus was incorporated into the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and eventually into the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The cultural and religious legacy of Kievan Rus laid the foundation for Ukrainian nationalism through subsequent centuries.
A new Ukrainian state, the Cossack Hetmanate, was established during the mid-17th century after an uprising against the Poles. Despite continuous Muscovite pressure, the Hetmanate managed to remain autonomous for well over 100 years. During the latter part of the 18th century, most Ukrainian ethnographic territory was absorbed by the Russian Empire.
Following the collapse of czarist Russia in 1917, Ukraine was able to bring about a short-lived period of independence (1917-1920), but was reconquered and forced to endure a brutal Soviet rule that engineered two artificial famines (1921-22 and 1932-33) in which over 8 million died. In World War II, German and Soviet armies were responsible for some 7 to 8 million more deaths. Although independence was achieved in 1991 with the dissolution of the USSR, true freedom remains elusive, as the legacy of state control has been difficult to throw off. Where state control has dissipated, endemic corruption has filled much of the resulting vacuum, stalling efforts at economic reform, privatization, and civil liberties.
ADDITIONAL KEYNOTES FROM THE HISTORY OF UKRAINE:
The Ruso-Turkish peace treaty of 1813 incorporated the area between the Prut and Dneister, now termed Besarabia, into the Czarist Empire for the first time. At the Congress of Paris in 1856 the southern districts of Besarabia (often collectively referred to as Bugeac) were united with Romania. At the Congress of Berlin in 1878 Besarabia was incorporated into the Czarist Empire in return for Romania retaining Dobrogea. In 1940 the Soviet government sent an ultimatum to Romania, and the regions of Besarabia and northern Bucovina became parts of the USSR.
There is an important 'minority' of Polish people in Ukraine. Lemberg (Lwów or Lviv=Lion) was integrated after 1939 in the Ukraine (Soviet Union). Since then Lemberg has been called the 'secret capital' of the Western Ukraine. In 1772 this city fell to the Habsburg Empire and was the 4th biggest city of the Monarchy. It was the capital of the Austrian province of the "Kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria".
Lemberg was also granted a right to delegate MPs to the parliament in Vienna, which made many prominent cultural and political leaders move to the city, which served as a meeting place of Ukrainian, Polish, Jewish and German cultures.
Today Lviv is still considered to be one of the main centres of Ukrainian culture and much of the political class in Kyiv originates from Lviv, including novelist Stanislaw Lem and the well-known Simon Wiesenthal.
UKRAINE AND THE SYMBOLIC TRIDENT
Trident (Trisula): a three-pronged trident symbolizing the
three fundamental powers of will, action, and knowledge (Icca, Kriya, and Inana). The trident also symbolizes deity's power to destroy evil and ignorance.
From http://www.toronto.edu <http://www.toronto.edu (by A. Zhukovsky):
"The oldest examples of the trident discovered by archaeologists on Ukrainian territory date back to the 1st century AD. At that time the trident probably served as a symbol of power in one of the tribes that later became part of the Ukrainian people. The trident was stamped on the gold and silver coins issued by Prince Volodymyr the Great (980-1015), who perhaps inherited the symbol from his ancestors as a dynastic coat of arms and passed it on to his sons, Sviatopolk I (1015-19) and Yaroslav the Wise (1019-54).
Iziaslav Yaroslavych (1054-78), Sviatopolk II Iziaslavych (1093-1113), and Lev Danylovych (1264-1301) used the bident (two prongs) as their coat of arms. Although the trident continued to be used by some ruling families as a dynastic coat of arms until the 15th century, it was replaced as a state emblem in the 12th century with the Archangel Michael.
"At M. Hrushevsky's recommendation Prince Volodymyr's trident was adopted by the Little Rada (12 February 1918) and the Central Rada (22 March 1918) as the coat of arms of the UNR. By that act the UNR leaders linked the modern Ukrainian state with the medieval state of Kievan Rus'. The Great and Minor state emblems of the UNR were designed by V. Krychevsky. The trident also appeared on the UNR banknotes, which were designed by H. Narbut, O. Krasovsky, V. Modzalevsky, Krychevsky, and others.
It was retained as the official coat of arms by the Hetman government and the Directory. The trident with a crossed middle arm was confirmed on 18 July 1918 as the emblem of the Black Sea Fleet.
"On 15 March 1939 the Diet of Carpatho-Ukraine adopted the trident with a cross as its official coat of arms. On 19 February 1992, after the restoration of Ukraine's independence in 1991, the Supreme Council accepted the trident as the chief element in the state coat of arms. Various versions of the trident are used by Ukrainian organizations: supporters of the Hetman regime and certain affiliates of the Ukrainian Catholic church use a trident with a cross, nationalist organizations use a trident with a sword in the middle (designed by R. Lisovsky), and the Ukrainian Native Faith church has incorporated the trident into its blazing sun emblem.
"On one level, Neptune's Trident is a symbol of the sea, but Ukraine does not have a rich naval history. In fact Cossacks in XVI and XVII century fought against Tartars on the Black Sea using small boats called "Tchayka". Ukraine never had a big navy. So, why showcase the Trident as the national symbol?"
Further compelling hints about the symbolic significance of the Ukraine Trident will be introduced below.
Agent's personal experience: "In [my employment] I am responsible for the eastern European market, for Ukraine among the others. During one of my trips I met an old professor, Ukrainian, who told me his explanation. This is a really interesting story.
Pay attention that this "Trident" does not look like typical Neptune's trident. Its shape is a little bit different, a little bit strange. This professor told me that this is "A SHADOW OF THE HAWK". And everything became clear to me!
"According to this Ukrainian professor, in the common Polish and Ukrainian tradition, Poles were called 'Eagles' and Ukrainians were known as 'Hawks'. Hawk was the symbol of the Zaporozhian Cossacks, a symbol of freedom during the war against the Poles in the XVII Century. In many Ukrainian songs 'Hawk' is a synonym for 'free Cossack'.
"The professor said, 'According to official minutes, the first session of Carpatho-Ukrainian parliament took place in the town of Khust on the 15th of March, 1939. Deputies proposed to adopt the old Czechoslovak coat of arms (with blue/yellow stripes and standing bear). During the discussion parliament member Dr. Stephen Rossokha suggested adopting St.Vladimir's trident as the state coat of arms. Priest Cyril Fedeles proposed to make a cross from the trident's center teeth by adding to it a short horizontal bar. These proposals were accepted by all 22 members of parliament. So, the final text of Law's part 1 (there was no specific title for the law but only number) was read as follows:
'The Law. Part 1. The parliament of Carpathian Ukraine adopted this law: Article 1. Carpathian Ukraine is an independent State. Article 2. State's name is Carpathian Ukraine. Article 3. Carpathian Ukraine is a republic headed by parliamentary elected president. Article 4. Ukrainian is a state language of Carpathian Ukraine. Article 5. The colors of state flag are blue and yellow, the upper one is blue and the lower is yellow.
Article 6. The state coat of arms of Carpathian Ukraine is contemporary territorial coat of arms: standing bear in left red field and four blue and yellow stripes in right one, as well as St.Vladimir's trident with a cross on center teeth. Article 7.The state anthem of Carpathian Ukraine is a song 'Ukraine has not died yet'.
"'I also have a memorial photo of parliament members which is decorated with both mentioned coats of arms: "trident" and "stripes with bear". So, Republic of Carpathian Ukraine had two coats of arms. Since the short period of state existence no regulations describing the usage of both coats of arms were adopted. Source: Stepan Rossokha. Soim Karpats'koi Ukrainy. - Lwiw, 1991. (Book is written in Ukrainian language).'
"I got an official meaning of the motto from a Councelor Embassy of Ukraine in Tokyo Japan: 'Volia, Zlagoda and Dobro" are "Freedom, Mutual Understanding and Goodness'."
The Coat of Arms is crowned with the crown of Volodymyr the Great, symbolizing Ukrainian sovereignty, and decorated with red fruits and wheat at the bottom.
Moldavia ('Moldova' in Romanian), situated between the Carpathian Mountains and the Prut River, was a principality of Romania, originally created in the Middle Ages. At times its authority extended farther eastward to the Dniester River. The more easterly extension now forms the ethnically Romanian independent state of Moldova, itself historically known as Bessarabia (after a certain Romanian noble family).
A union between Moldavia and Romania was confirmed by the Treaty of Paris (1920), but this was not recognized by the Soviet Union. After World War II, parts of Moldavia were included in the Soviet Socialist Republic of Moldavia, and the easternmost parts were handed over to Ukraine. In 1991, the Moldavian SSR declared independence under the name 'Moldova.'
Moldova's Latin origins can be traced to the period of Roman occupation of nearby Dacia (in present-day Romania, Bulgaria, and Serbia), ca. 105-270 A.D., when a culture was formed from the intermingling of Roman colonists and the local population.
After the Roman Empire and its influence waned and its troops left the region in A.D. 271, a number of groups passed through the area, often violently: Huns, Ostrogoths, and Antes (who were Slavs). The Bulgarian Empire, the Magyars, the Pechenegs, and the Golden Horde (Mongols) also held sway temporarily. In the thirteenth century, Hungary expanded into the area and established a line of fortifications in Moldova near the Siretul River (in present-day Romania) and beyond. The region came under Hungarian suzerainty until an independent Moldovan principality was established by Prince Bogdan in 1349.
Originally called Bogdania, the principality stretched from the Carpathian Mountains to the Nistru River and was later renamed Moldova, after the Moldova River in present-day Romania.
The greatest Moldavian prince, aptly named Stefan cel Mare (Stefan the Great) with his army of Boyars and retainers fought of invasions from the Turks, the Polish and the Tatars. Stefan fought 36 major battles and only lost 2. At the end of his reign, Moldovian independence was secured and no more Moldovian gold went to turkish hands as tribute. Moldova then experienced a "slump." Weak kings let incompetent boyars rule the state and not pay taxes, bankrupting the state.
Moldova succumbed to Ottoman power in 1512 and was a tributary state of the empire for the next 300 years. In addition to paying tribute to the Ottoman Empire and later acceding to the selection of local rulers by Ottoman authorities, Moldova suffered repeated invasions by Turks, Crimean Tatars, and Russians.
In 1792 the Treaty of Iasi forced the Ottoman Empire to cede all of its holdings in what is now Transnistria to the Russian Empire. An expanded Bessarabia (after the name of Wallachian king Basarab I) was annexed by, and incorporated into, the Russian Empire following the Russo-Turkish War of 1806- 12 according to the terms of the Treaty of Bucharest of 1812.
After Russian's defeat in the Crimean War (1853-1856), the Treaty of Paris stipulated that Moldova (and Valachia) were to be placed under the collective guarantee of the seven powers that signed the treaty and the retrocession to Moldova of Southern Bessarabia (Ismail, Bolgrad, Kahul counties). In 1859 Moldovan state was united with Walachia, by election of Alexandru Ioan Cuza as prince of both Walachia and Moldova, laying the foundations of modern Romania. By the Treaty of Berlin (1878), Romanian government ceded the southern Bessarabia to Russian Empire.
After the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the Declaration of Rights of Peoples of Russia encouraged the various nationalities in the Russian Empire to gain their independence, Moldova became an independent Republic on December 2, 1917. On the request of the new Moldovan administration ("Sfatul tării"), on December 13, Romanian troops entered Bessarabia. On March 27, 1918 there was a vote for the unification with Romania.
After the creation of the Soviet Union in December 1922, the Soviet government moved in 1924 to establish the Moldavian Autonomous Oblast on east lands of the Nistru River in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (Ukrainian SSR). The capital of the oblast was at Balta (Balta, in Ukrainian), in present-day Ukraine. Seven months later, the oblast was upgraded to the Moldavian Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic (Moldavian ASSR), even though its population was only 30 percent ethnic Romanian. The capital remained at Balta until 1929, when it was moved to Tiraspol.
Formerly ruled by Romania as the principality of Moldavia, Moldova was occupied by the Soviet Union (with German consent) in 1940 as a consequence of a secret protocol attached to the 1939 Nazi-Soviet Nonaggression Pact. On August 2, 1940, the Soviet government created the Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic (Moldavian SSR), with its capital at Chisinau (Kishinëv, in Russian), by joining most of Bessarabia with a portion of the Moldavian ASSR (the rest was returned to the Ukrainian SSR).
In creating the Moldovan SSR, Bessarabia was once again divided, severely undermining its historical and economic integrity. Several southern regions and access points to the Black Sea through the mouth of the Danube River (the city of Ismail) and Nistru estuary (the city of Belgorod-Dnestrovsky) were ceded to Ukraine, leaving the Moldavian SSR landlocked.
In June 1941, German and Romanian troops attacked the Moldavian SSR and the Ukrainian SSR; the Nazis gave Romania, their ally, not only Bessarabia and northern Bukovina but also the land between the Nistru and Pivdennyy Buh (Yuzhnyy Bug, in Russian) rivers, north to Bar in Ukraine, which Romania named and administered as Transnistria.
This arrangement lasted until August 1944, when Soviet forces reoccupied Bessarabia and Transnistria. A 1947 treaty formally returned Bessarabia, northern Bukovina, and Transnistria to the Soviet Union, and the previous Soviet administrative divisions and Russian place-names were reimposed.
Rayelan's comments regarding the Moldavian coat-of-arms:
"I think the Moldavian Bull is a symbol for the ancient Mithraic religion. The Vatican was built over a Mithraic (cave -feminine symbol) temple. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I remember Gunther saying something about the Templars tracing their beliefs to Mithra. I also think the Cathars had more than a drop or two of Mithraic beliefs in their teachings. Where did the Cult of Mithra start? Persia.... (Hmmmm is that the reason Prestor John took the Holy Grail to Persia?)
"The first 4 centuries Mithra was the leading rival with Christianity. Mithra was born on December 25th and his birthday was called the birthday of the unconquered Sun. There are many more exact parralells to Jesus... but the thing I find the most interesting is this... only men worshipped Mithra... the women had their own religion... they worshipped the Goddess Diana, Isis or Juno. A castrated bull was sacrificed and its blood was delivered to the moon for magical fructificaton, the moon being the source of women's magic lunar "blood of life" that produced real children on earth.
Hmmm.... Crescent Moon.... women's mentrual cycles... the hatred Catholics and Muslims had/have for women... Islam uses of a female symbol... the crescent as the symbol of a male dominated religion... Islam... WHY??
"I have said that a new female religion patterned after the Goddess Diana was in our future... but then, on seeing the rise of the Taliban... I said that we are seeing a combination of Communism and Islam... Commu-Islam. I now see that there is FAR more going on here...
The Templars are loyal to the Goddess... I always thought that meant the Mother Earth... rather than a father God... they also revere God... but the Mother is their first priority. The Mithraic Bull was sacrficed to the moon... a female symbol... I don't know what I am seeing here... but I think this is important... and maybe THIS is the REAL reason that the UKRAINE must become FREE and part of Europe rather than going back under communist/male rule."
KIEV - MIDDLE AGES THROUGH THE 17TH CENTURY
Kiev was probably founded in the 5th century and functioned as a trading post between Constantinople and Scandinavia. The Gothic historian Jordanes recorded the trading town of Danapirstadir. As the region came under Slav rule the town became known as Kyiv. Legend speaks of a founder-family consisting of Kyi (Кий) the eldest, his brothers Schek and Khoriv, and also their sister Lybid'.
From 882 until 1169 Kiev was the capital of the principal Varangian/East-Slavic state, known as Kievan Rus' (or Kyivan Rus'). The church of Saint Sophia in Kiev, begun in 1037, was designed to emulate the splendor of Byzantine churches, reflecting the reception of Christianity from the Byzantine Empire.
Though it is dedicated to "Holy Wisdom", as was the great cathedral of Hagia Sophia in Constantinople, the building has a very different form-rather than a single hemispherical dome rising out of the block of the building, Hagia Sophia in Kiev has 13 onion-shaped domes carried on drums. The central dome is larger than the rest (and in the most recent renovations, gilded), but not significantly so.
Devastated by the invading Mongols in 1240, it subsequently passed under the rule of the state of Halych-Volynia [before 1264] and then Lithuania (1362), Poland (1569), a short-lived Ukrainian Cossack state (1648), which formed a protective treaty with Muscovy (1654) and slowly lost independence, then autonomy by 1775, as Muscovy renamed itself, "Russia" (1713), then the "Russian Empire" (1721), successively.
In 1497, the city was granted a "Magdeburg law", turning it into a self-governed entity independent from Szlachta rule.
In 1632, the Kyiv Mohyla academy was established in the city aimed to preserve and develop Ukrainian culture and Orthodox faith despite Polish Catholic oppression. It was named after Petro Mohyla, a prominent Slavic cleric. Although ruled by the church, the academy provided students with educational standards close to universities of Western Europe (including multi-lingual training).
Later it became one of the main educational centers of the Slavic world. Closed by the Tsarist government in the 19th century, the academy was reestablished in the 1990s as a secular non-governmental international university. It is still based in the same compound, containing some 17th century architecture.
THE ISLES OF THE GENTILES
Related investigation by Laura Knight-Jadczyk (cassiopaea.org): I have asked: could it be possible that the Frisians came FROM England to the salt marshes of northern Europe? How does this relate to the belief of the ancient Armenians and Georgians that the Khazars were "Gog and Magog."
Yesterday, we looked at the passages from the Bible that mention Gog and Magog (I am excluding repeating genealogical passages).
In Genesis, we read:
10:1 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.
10:2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.
10:3 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.
10:4 And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.
10:5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.
Those of you who have read my series Who Wrote The Bible
should know that I'm not really going "Bible Thumper" here, but that I certainly think that there is something to many of the ancient texts that were assembled to create the Bible. But obviously, something was going on in the ancient world that has been recorded in the Bible, and later turned into "Holy Writ." Notice again the remark about "isles of the Gentiles."
In the passage from Ezekiel we notice several of the "sons of Japheth" being named as places:
38:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
38:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal...
Then later, he mentions the land of Magog is in the same breath with "them that dwell carelessly in the isles..."
39:6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles...
Why should people in the "isles of the gentiles" be described as living carelessly? Is that "carelessly" as in "without cares," or is it carelessly as in not taking sufficient care in some way that led to an incident in which such carelessness became a "marker" for these people? Perhaps a famous blunder of some sort?
The only place on the planet that has been called Gog and Magog for any considerable length of time in our history is in
England: the Gog Magog hills near Cambridge.
Curiously, crop circles
<http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/article.asp?ID=66> appeared in a field near to these hills exactly two months before the September 11th attacks on New York.
Historians suggest that the Gog Magog hills got their name because of the innumerable human bones that have been found there; evidence of a battle so fierce that it reminded the locals of Ezekiel's passage about Gog, king of Magog.
The earliest reference to this name for these hills is in a decree of 1574 forbidding students to visit them or be fined. Nowadays, they are still a trysting area. A map dating from the end of the 16th century also depicts the Gogmagog Hills.
There is a small problem here, I think. How did the locals know about the prophecy of Ezekiel?
John Wycliff's hand-written manuscripts in the 1380s were the first complete Bibles in the English language. They were obviously not widely available.
William Tyndale printed the first English NEW Testament in 1525/6. One risked death by burning if caught in mere possession of the forbidden book. Only two complete copies of that first printing are known to have survived. Any Edition printed before 1570 is very rare, most of them were confiscated and burned.
Myles Coverdale and John Rogers, assistants to Tyndale, carried the project forward. The first complete English Bible was printed on October 4, 1535, and is known as the Coverdale Bible.
Considering this timeline, it seems questionable that the locals around the Gogmagog hills should have give such a new name to their hills, or that it would have become commonly known to everyone, such that a decree could be published in less than 40 years regarding same. Considering the fact that having or reading the Bible was a crime for most of those 40 years, it is not likely that the local people would have wanted to reveal their knowledge of the name in this way. One would also think that if ancient battle sites were subject to being renamed in this fashion after the release of the English Bible, many other ancient battle sites would have received Biblical names as well.

THE PILLARS OF HERCULES
The existence of a land-bound sea where Europe and Asia meet - comparable in size to the Meditteranean - is not disputed in orthodox science. But the claim is that the Black, Caspian, and Azov Seas were separated long before the end of the Pleistocene Era.
The ancient sea that included today's Black, Caspian, and Aral Seas existed more than a million years ago, according to conventional thinking. It has been called the 'Sarmatic Sea'. As Fessenden described in 'THE DELUGED CIVILIZATION OF THE CAUCASUS ISTHMUS,' the 'Pillars of Hercules' (interpreted as the Hellespont) would have been found in the far west of the Sarmatic Sea.
In Plato's account of Solon's story of Atlantis, there is reference to 'the whole of the surrounding continent' at the other side of the 'ocean'. The description is sensible in the context of the Sarmatic Sea. This implies that the mythic references to the 'Pillars' were transplanted (like the 'Hills of Gog and Magogg' and Troy).
By all indications, important mythological events actually occurred in connection with Gibraltar and the Hellespont, first in the East. This concept does not conflict with the Atlantis/Antarctica connection. Atlantis was a global empire. But it was also a super-planetary mining colony.
In the ancient lore, the term 'Pillars of Hercules' had a geodetic reference that was known exoterically, and a stellar reference that was known only to initiates. Four fixed stars were said to hold up the world, the Four Royal Watchers of Persian tradition: Regulus (North), Aldebaran (East), Formalhaut (South) and Antares (West). The mythic references to the Pillars denote geographic as well as celestial features.
UNVEILING THE ASHKENAZIM
Agent's comment: "The City is typical modus operandi... separated financial and commercial center. The Middle East is a crucial distraction and potential deadly weapon held in reserve. Eastern Europe is likely the real seat of power and command of the homeland is essential agenda.
My personal opinion is that we, as in those of us on earth, are in the process of creating our way out of this hell we have created... by transformation... we shall restore a given potential to this planet.
The dark seed has been a purposeful part of creation since the creation of this earth. Discovery of that seed, all the way back to the beginning, may satisfy analytical mind credibility as an essential prelude to what comes next. There has been a fairly consistent one-world plan since [before] Solomon, probably perverted as is customary for "their" purposes, and you have even traced it back to Nimrod, closer yet to a beginning.
The "dark seed" has always been there and its infusions have taken various shapes and approaches throughout time. Perhaps the cloak of Ashkenazi is the latest manifestation and vehicle.
They are worldwide, well ensconced in crucial power positions and largely responsive to direction that many of them, brainwashed just like we have been, probably do not understand.
Their primary vehicle of control, financial, is located in The City, a sovereign parcel without the city of London proper. Their true power center is, I think at this time, Eastern Europe and their next phase agenda is a bipolar, rather than a multi-polar, world situation. "
THE WAY OF THE KHAZAR
Showing the Jews to be Khazars and Not Israelites. Compiled by: Willie Martin. Excerpt:
"Benjamin Freeman, Facts Are Facts: 'CHAZARS: A people of Turkish origin whose life and history are interwoven with the very beginnings of the history of the Jews of Russia...driven on by the nomadic tribes of the steppes and by their own desire for plunder and revenge...
In the second half of the sixth century the Chazars moved westward...The kingdom of the Chazars was firmly established in most of south Russia long before the foundation of the Russian monarchy by the Varangians...
At this time the kingdom of the Chazars stood at the height of its power and was constantly at war...At the end of the eighth century...the chagan (king) of the Chazars and his grandees, together with a large number of his heathen people, embraced the Jewish religion.'"
Agent re the Khazar: "IMO the OLD VALUES of Europeans were changed over time by the Khazar influx and tyranny to the LACK of VALUES put upon us. If we were to survive FINANCIALLY after the Khazars took over an established lending with usury, lack of respect for MORAL VALUES, which were kept in place by the WOMEN of the cities and tribes, and denigration of the CORE SPIRIT in our MEN by telling them their adherence to the ENERGIES of their WOMEN was silly and stupid.
(In the OLD WAYS the Tribal Council or City Elders made loans with agreement on repayment and NEVER interest or fee. It was the Peoples money and the people were honor bound to pay the loans back to their OWN community bank themselves and their relatives!)
"We are witnessing a GLOBAL swing of the pendulum back to VALUES and this is antithetical to the beliefs IMPOSED on WESTERN Europeans by the Khazar (EASTERN MONGOLS & TURKS ) conquerors and where their influence is still heavy are areas now in great crisis!"
No other territory challenges Russia's integrity more than the North Caucasus, where an intriguing mix of manifold ethnicities and languages paint a picture that nobody seems to understand. The Caucasus is one of the most linguistically and culturally diverse places on earth. According to the official Russian terminology there are five titular nationalities in the three republics concerned: the Adyge Kabardians, Cherkess, Karachay, Balkars.
The region called Caucasus is situated between the Black and the Caspian See, the East European Lowlands and Anatolia is generally divided into the Northern Caucasus district and Transcaucasus (Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan). In the Northern Caucasus district the non-independent areas of Ossetia, Chechnya, Ingushetia, Dagestan and others can be found. However in cultural, linguistic and sociological terms, as well as in their own self-perception, it is possible to speak of the existence of two nations: These are the Circassians and the Karachay - Balkars.
Although often declared by the mainstream Media as 'Islamic Nations' this is simply not true! The TRIBAL 'rules' are still dominant above anything else. NO 'ISLAMIC!! FRONT'...
Languages: Caucasian (in Dagestan only over 24 subgroups!! and 12 'official' languages!!), Indogermanic (Ossetia, Armenia), Turk languages (Karachay, Balkars)
In Greek mythology, the Caucasus, or Kaukasos was called as one of the pillars 'supporting the world'.
The Khazars located here after 500 AD acting as a buffer protecting Byzantium against invasions by the barbarian Bulgars, Magyars, Pechenegs, and later the Vikings and Russians. The Khazars also blocked the Arabs from Eastern Europe, which - although little known - was far more important.
As the armies of the Caliphate swept northward through the remnants of two empires they reached the great mountain barrier of the Caucasus. Once this barrier was passed, the road lay open to the lands of Eastern Europe. As it was, on the line of the Caucasus the Arabs met the forces of an organized military power that effectively prevented them from extending their conquests in this direction. These were the wars of the Arabs and the Khazars, which lasted more than a hundred years.
In 740 the Khazars converted to Judaism.
Until the 9th century, they had no rivals to their supremacy in these regions north of the Black Sea and the adjoining steppe and the forest regions of the Dnieper. The Khazars were the supreme masters of the southern half of Eastern Europe for a century and a half. During this whole period they held back the nomadic tribes from the East.
At the peak of their power, they controlled and received tribute from almost all nations and tribes from these territories. The Georgians and Armenians, having been repeatedly devastated by the Khazars, identified them as Gog and Magog. An Armenian writer described them as having "...insolent, broad, lashless faces and long falling hair, like women...." (For a more intensive research, read 'The Thirteenth Tribe' by Arthur Koestler (http://www.christusrex.org/www2/koestler/)
When the town of Kiev passed into Rus hands it was the beginning of the end for the Khazarian Empire. The Khazars allegedly searched an alliance against the Rus and found them in the Magyars - a warrior tribe from the forest regions of the northern Urals along with two other tribes, the Vogul and Ostyak.
Probably at the time of a cometary bombardment that brought us the 'dark ages' these tribes were driven out of their Ural forests and attached themselves as vassals to first the Huns and then the Khazars. The Magyars received metaphorically and literally - a 'blood transfusion' from the Khazars (Koestler). The alliance came to an end around the 8th century when the Magyars crossed the Carpathian Mountains and conquered the territory that was to become Hungary.
In 1016, Russia (Kiev) and Byzantium formed a pact and their joint army invaded Khazaria and subdued the country. The Byzantines had sacrificed the Khazar alliance. The destruction of Khazaria's capital city of Sarkel in 965 had been the beginning of the end of the Khazar Empire. Afterwards the Mongols took over the region till the 13th century. Then again the rulers of Muscovy (Moscow; became the center of Russian court) shared dominance over the region together with Orthodox Byzanz.
In the more ethnically diverse east, religious authorities tried to unite the population under the basic aggressiveness of Islam for fighting the Russian expansion during the 18th and 19th century. Deportations of whole nations were the rule since the 16th century when Tsar 'Ivan the Terrible' tried to conquer the region. New peoples were settled and made the manifold ethnicities even more complicated.
During the WWII Stalin continued the history of suppressions and deportations. Although most Caucasians did not collaborate with the Germans this excuse was fabricated by Stalin to persecute certain Muslim peoples such as the Crimean Tatars, Chechens, Kalmyks, Karachai, Balkars, Kabardians and the Ingush who were deported en-masse to Siberia and Central Asia between 1934 and 1944.
This was an example of Stalin's paranoia and fear of the Islamic peoples in the Soviet Union and part of his general use of terror as a means of control. Only one group that was deported was not Muslim, and these were the Volga Germans.
Even today Russia hasn't found the key for the organization of the Caucasus. Artificial creations of 'provinces' and subsequent dismantling of 'autonomous regions' figure in the comments of ex President Boris Yeltzin who "offered all nationalities as much sovereignty as they could bear..."
THE CAUCASUS IN PRE-HISTORY
In a study of the ancient Caucasus, Reginald Aubrey Fessenden describes the geophysical attributes of the region. Fessenden was brought up in the banking business, and employed by the Ontario Niagara Falls Power Commission in the 1920's. In his study of the ancient history of the Caucasus, he provides this information:
"The Caucasus is better provided with power than any other place in the world. The principal sources are:
1. Hydraulic, from the melting of the glaciers and rainfall, 120,000,000 h.p. 2. Hydraulic, from flow equal to evaporation, from Black sea to Caspian Basin, 5,000,000 h.p. 3. Oil. 4. Gas. 5. Coal. 6. Wind power. 7. Thermal.
The figures for the hydraulic power may be taken as correct; the writer was engineering commissioner for the Ontario Niagara Falls Power Commission, and that plant was erected by his assistants. They are the horsepower obtainable from the sources 365 days per year, 10 hours per day.) With a free hand and a golf coarse one could in five years (the financial problems have not been overlooked; the writer was brought up in the banking business) transform the Caucasus isthmus into a creative Hyperborea which would supply all of Russia with more than it could possibly use of everything except cereals, and give opportunity for the development of a civilization as it should be, i.e. one in which the necessary physical labor becomes a form of healthful, universal and useful physical exercise and all else is a matter of individual initiative."
Reginald Fessenden's investigations of history and myth are an important counterpart to the information Laura Knight-Jadczyk has researched.
Core myths in the development of today's world have been constrained to the Meditteranean, but the work of these two reveal events of paramount importance actually occurred in the British Isles and the Caucasus.

FALLACIOUS GEOPHYSICAL CHRONOLOGIES
One very important scandalous deceit that is rapidly approaching the 'discovery phase' in mass awareness is the persuasion that huge catastrophes did occur on the planet and in the solar system, but many millions of years in the past.
It is not easy to give an exaggerated description of the cataclysm that ended the Pleistocene Era, usually dated around 10,000 to 12,000 years ago.
However, humanity's global history is far easier to comprehend if the nature and scope of this event is familiar. One of the most compelling, and also concise accounts of the Pleistocene Event was excerpted from the Cassiopaea book, "Ancient Science", in the 29 August 2004 'Signs Of The Times" [<http://signs-of-the-times.org/signs/signs20040829.htm> ].
This reference also presents an overview of the contrived and invalid methods used in determining when geophysical events happened.
Radiocarbon dating is known to produce inaccurate results starting around 10,000 years before the present. Because the Pleistocene Event occurred at the point where Radiocarbon methods break down, the question arises: "Could such an event change radioactive decay data? Could it change the values of some fundamental physical constants? Yes, it could" (see Cassiopaea).
And events that orthodoxy places in the remote past may in fact have occurred within the timeframe of the Pleistocene
Extinction. Quoting the Signs page linked above:
"Radiocarbon dates for Pleistocene remains in northeastern North America, according to scientists Richard Firestone of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and William Topping, (Terrestrial Evidence of a Nuclear Catastrophe in Paleo-Indian Times <http://www-library.lbl.gov/docs/LBNL/475/49/HTML/isotope/pdf/paleo.pdf>) 'are younger-as much as 10,000 years younger- than for those in the western part of the country. Dating by other methods like thermo-luminescence (TL), geoarchaeology, and sedimentation suggests that many radiocarbon dates are grossly in error.
For example, materials from the Gainey Paleoindian site in Michigan, radiocarbon dated at 2880 yr BC, are given an age by TL dating of 12,400 BC. It seems that there are so many anomalies reported in the upper US and in Canada of this type, that they cannot be explained by ancient aberrations in the atmosphere or other radiocarbon reservoirs, or by contamination of data samples (a common source of error in radiocarbon dating).'"
Newsletters published by the Kronia Group (kronia.com & thunderbolts.info) detail the Pleistocene Event as part of a super-solar catastrophe that re-arranged this solar system. It was an immense catastrophe, and quite recent. The survivors remembered the experience. Lore about 'Nibiru' is included in this memory, though not exactly as Sitchin has re-constructed it. By all indications, earth's celestial environment was unlike anything we experience today.
BEFORE THE CATACLYSM
This Crow Bridal Ornament from the New York Times website depicts what was witnessed (and remembered) at an early stage in the cataclysm: The 'Planetary Umbilical ', 'World Mountain, or 'Nail of the North' reaching from the North Pole toward Mars, represented by the red square, then Saturn, the central star, represented by the yellow disc. Note in this image the cross that is very similar to the Star or Cross of Babylon as well as the symbol of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
This ornament represents the 'Common Polar Configuration', which was sustained by a force Kronia says is "a thousand billion billion billion billion times stronger than gravity": electricity, the primary organizing force of the cosmos. The Polar Configuration is the basis of our predilection for 'Northerly Mindedness', the basis of our habit of drawing maps with North at the top.
The Saturn system was disrupted when Proto-Saturn contacted the electrically charged sphere of our present Sun. Among the survivors were the Meso-Americans, whose early cosmology was Polar. Later, Zenith reckoning prevailed, and finally the two were reconciled in the design of the Pyramid of Kukulcan at Chichen Itza in the tenth century AD. Proto-Saturn - above the North Pole - was at times partially obscured by the close approach of Mars, leaving only a thin crescent of Saturn visible beyond the close and relatively dark orb of Mars.
This variant of the familiar crescent is discernible because it sweeps through much more than 180 degrees, whereas the lunar crescent cannot, due to the relative size of Earth and Moon. This crescent became the 'Winged Disc' and later the 'Horned Orb'. This 'non-lunar' crescent has appeared on the flags of many communist nations as well as the flag of Turkey. It is familiar as the Islamic Crescent, and also appears in Austria's Coat-of-Arms.
Many indications suggest that this non-lunar crescent is an important symbol of the Old Order that was destroyed at the close of the Pleistocene Era.
The Star and Crescent of Islam may juxtapose the Crescent as symbolic of the Old Order with Persia's 'Watcher in the East': Aldebaran. If this is true, it may also signify Islam's conquest for dominance.
OLD DESIGNS APPLIED TO A NEW WORLD
Last June 28 the Associated Press ran an item about the proposed new flag of Iraq, saying: "Saddam Hussein is gone but his flag flies on. The green, red, white and black banner with the words ''God is great,'' added by Saddam in the 1990s fluttered Monday over government buildings.
"The proposed new flag, approved by the U.S.-appointed Iraqi Governing Council, sank in public esteem faster than a stone in the Tigris river after a firestorm of criticism that the new banner ignored the country's Islamic and Arab character and looked too much like the Israeli flag. […]
"The proposed new national banner had two parallel blue stripes along the bottom with a yellow stripe in the middle. The blue stripes represented the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. The yellow stripe symbolized Iraq's ethnic Kurdish minority, taking its color from the yellow star on the flag of Kurdistan. Above the stripes, in a white field, was a blue crescent of Islam. Trouble is, Israel has the only national flag in the Middle East with the color blue.
"Some critics thought that abandoning the old color scheme represented a rejection of Iraq's Arab identity. "
For another perspective on the new Iraq flag, see: http://www.bushflash.com/flag.html

Compare the image above with this:
The corporate emblem above was found at: http://www.euro.ecb.int/en/more/communication/download1.html
The ECB symbol shown above is an all-too obvious reminder of the glyph of Libra.
The two horizontal lines appear in the Libra glyph / ECB symbol and also on the flag of Iraq.
In two of these images the symbolic solar disc has dropped half way below the horizon.
However, the 'solar disc' on the Iraq flag shows Mars before Saturn above the horizon, as seen before the cataclysm.
One of the meanings of the Libra glyph is particularly linked with the fact that Libra/Liberia was one of the ancient names of Egypt (see 'Alexandrian Library'). The 'disc' in the glyph of Libra evoked the Sun at the Autumn Equinox and thus represented the annual solar decline in the Northern Hemisphere. The solar disc shown on the horizon may also have commemorated the 'end' of the Saturn System.
In this framework the 'Saturn/Mars Crescent' on the proposed and rejected Iraq flag can be seen as a modified Libra glyph, possibly intended to aver that the old Sun never actually 'died', or it has risen again like the phoenix.
THE BROKEN CHAIN OF THE AUSTRIAN NATIONAL EMBLEM
Communism's 'Hammer and Sickle' appear as elements of the Austrian emblem, separated, and the 'chain that binds' is shown as broken. The 'chain that binds' may be a reference to the electrically driven perpetual tornadic formation that stretched from the North Pole to Mars and on to Venus and Saturn prior to the disruption, when 'the chain was broken' and the slaves of the mining colony were deemed 'liberated' by 'greater powers'.
The Hammer, representing the laborers in the mines, is cut free from the Crescent, symbolizing the Old Order. The Hammer is free to build a new world. The Crescent/Sickle is gripped in the Right Talon. It is the glyph of Saturn viewed upside down (the former imperator was 'deposed').
It seems that before the cataclysm, the elite of the mining colony lived on Mars, and were forced to come to this planet. They were the giants who interbred with Earth Humanity. Now the interbreeding is almost total, and the former slaves and their owners must share the planet.
Officially, the Sickle represents the farmers, the WALLCROWN (a crown made of bricks) symbolizes the bourgeoisie (the people - note BOURG = a castle made of bricks), and the HAMMER in the left claw signifies the working class.
THE VOYAGE OF THE ARGO
"The essential elements of the Argonautica's plot are simple: Iason was ordered by King Pelias to find and bring back the Golden Fleece. He fitted a ship called the Argo and sailed from his land with a band of heroes, the Argonauts, drawn from all over the Greek territory. The Golden Fleece was kept in the land of Aia at the mouth of the river Phasis, the easternmost point of the Caucasus. Aia was conceived as the end of the earth. Beyond it the river Phasis empties into the Oceanus.
"All our sources are less than sketchy about the movements of the Argo in the east.
After touching Mariandyne, which probably is in the Mariandic Gulf described by ancient geographers as the easternmost point of the Mediterranean, and which is designated as an entrance to Hades (as all important transition points are), the expedition continues toward the land of Aia. The Odyssey, which presents similar adventures, ascribing them to Odysseus, places them in the west. According to the Odyssey the city of Aia is in the west.
In the Argonautica, the Black Sea is entered by passing the dangerous point of the Clashing Rocks at the Bosphoros; but in the Odyssey the Clashing Rocks are in the west. Once the voyage of the Argo was made to pass through the Black Sea, the idea was conceived of going to the extreme east of the Black Sea, and hence the easternmost point of the maritime area composed of the Mediterranean and the Black Sea.
The exact point where the Golden Fleece was kept is a city called Aia, "Earth." It is on the right bank of the Phasis near its mouth. Perhaps Aia indicated the exact geodetic point 42°12'N, 41°38'E. According to Pherekydes, Aia was located on an island of the river Phasis. The land of Aia was called Colchis." <http://www.metrum.org/mapping/argo.htm>
GOLDEN FLEECE: 42°12'N, 41°38'E
The river Phasis is today called the Rhioni, flowing into the Black Sea at the Eastern Shore. In Reginald Fessenden's reconstruction of the Voyage of the Argo, the Caspian, Black, and Aral Seas were one. The third-highest mountain in Persia is just south of the Caspian. It is known as Takht-i-Suleiman ('Throne of Solomon').
Agent's Comments: "A few pieces in relation to "tones", from my own frame of reference.
"The third eye is sometimes called the Tenth Door, considering that there are nine apertures of the body through which our energies are habitually running outward (ears, eyes, etc.).
"In spiritual concentration, all of the energy currents are drawn upward so that the person is at total one-pointed focus at the tenth door, the portal through which the higher spiritual awareness is attained.
"Below the tenth door, we experience sound with the outer sense of hearing, but beyond the tenth door, the Inner sound is experienced with the spiritual sense perception, which is direct perception. On each level of consciousness from there upward, a different quality of tone is perceived a sound like a conch, a bell, a violin-like instrument and so forth.
"Spiritual adepts across all cultures have "heard" these inner sounds.
"All of those different qualities or tones are really emanations of the one inner Sound, the dynamic manifestation of the one divine essence, which manifests accordingly in each realm. In the highest realm of total Oneness, the Sound is pure un-manifest spiritual energy."
Another agent (paraphrased): "From the ancient Hungarian Mythology there's a tale that goes back to the origins of the Hungarian Nation. It's about the story of a man who cultivates a tree of BEANS which gets so big that it REACHES HEAVEN. Now, interesting - in Hungarian, which is said to be an 'ancient'- Magi language - 'beans' are BAB! -I think everyone knows by now that BAB in all Arabic and Sumerian languages means DOOR.
"Thinking further of the Lion [supporting one side of the Trident on the Ukraine Coat-of-Arms] - which stands for Gallicia (Gauls?) - JACK from the [Legend of Jack & the Beanstalk] seems to be a UNION JACK - linking UK-raine throughout all EU-Rope towards [today's] United Kingdom.
"In the History of the Caucasus you'll find the story of the Hungarians who made a deal with the Khazar Empire and went westwards to the Danube-Tisza-Basin where they are now. And Chinges Khan has hidden HIS treasure, according to Hungarian myths, in the river of Tisza, which flows from Rumania/Moldavia into Hungary."
FLEECE STOLEN WITH THE HELP OF MEDEA
Ancient Greek legends told of a fabulously wealthy land where Jason and the Argonauts stole the Golden Fleece from King Aeetes with the help of his daughter Medea. It was a distant land that was reached by the Black Sea and down the River Phasis. The actual site of this legendary kingdom has never been found but the Greeks must have been greatly impressed by the Colchis region of Georgia, through which the River Phasis (currently the Rioni River) runs, for such stories to have been born.
Geographically, ancient Colchis comprised the land bounded by the Black Sea to the west, the Caucasus Mountains to the north, the Surami Range to the east and the Meskhetian Mountains to the south. In this fertile, sheltered area, Colchian civilization flourished. Their Late Bronze Age (15th to 8th Century BC) saw the development of an expertise in the smelting and casting of metals that began long before this skill was mastered in Europe.
Sophisticated farming implements were made and fertile, well-watered lowlands blessed with a mild climate promoted the growth of progressive agricultural techniques.
It is likely that the Golden Fleece existed. Earlier in this century, remote mountain villagers in Svaneti (a part of ancient Colchis) were observed using sheepskins to trap the fine gold particles in the rivers that flowed from the Caucasus Mountains. The skins would then be dried and beaten to shake out their contents. However, it is debatable as to whether or not the legendary 'wealth' of Colchis referred only to gold.
Archaeological evidence dates the earliest Greek imports of painted pottery and amphorae to the end of the 7th Century BC. In exchange, it is thought that Greeks sought the rich natural resources of Colchis including wood and metal ores as well as textiles. Even today, the mountain slopes remain heavily forested and the Ancient Greek writer, Herodotus, referred to the superior quality of Colchian linen. <http://www.great-adventures.com/destinations/rep_georgia/colchis.html>
RMN COMMENTS ON 'HELL'
"HADES has been made masculine as has all our inherited knowledge. Hades is PLUTO. HELL named for the Nordic GODDESS Hel. Hades is the GREAT WOMB of the GODDESS. Patriarchy has DEMONIZED HELL to prevent us from going cave exploring in there. But it is where all TRUTHS that Patriarchy has BANISHED are stored - NOT hidden from TRUE seekers, OCCULTISTS. Only hidden from those who use these truths for abuse. All TRANSITION POINTS (PLUTO) lead to HADES BECAUSE that's where TRUTH has been stored when SHE was banished by the woman-hating god and his acolytes."
"Gunther Russbacher called the Spear of Destiny the 'Helle League Lance', pronounced 'heh' (short 'e')' lee' (long 'e') 'guh' 'lance': 'heh lee guh lance.'"
"Interesting that HELL is a N-German term. If you look up a lot of Danish names on a map you'll find everywhere the term HELLE, which means LIGHT, BRIGHT, SHINY in German.
There are myriads of expressions and old terms that show the term HELLE in northern Europe, as well as Troy. The sea between Denmark and Great Britain was called HELLESEA. [In Old Rome] Londynium (London) was called NEW TROY. Troy probably was situated near the Gog-Magog Hills South of Cambridge. See the village of Ely ("Illias" anyone?) and the big Cathedral built there. Note the KING'S LYNN at the WASH, where (possibly) once stood the camp of the 'Greek' army. The Greek were actually from France and Troy was in Britain -so Priamos was posssibly the 1st English King in the Bronze Ages.
Hell (entrance forbidden!-LOL!) was in N-Europe, and the GREEK and all their culture and influence on today's Europe was indeed Celtic and Druidic - with Atlantic heritage."
THE TARA GATE OF ESCHOL
Investigative mythologist William Henry (books and articles at williamhenry.net) has studied old traditions of the 'Isles of the Gentiles' and names them as the location of many of the most important Old Testament episodes. He notes Laurence Gardiner's statement that the Irish mythology of the Anunnaki is at least a thousand years older than Sumerian civilization. Henry tells that the Anunnaki operated a 'Tara gate' at a place called Eschol, 'valley of the cluster' in Canaan, the 'Promised Land'. Henry says that in ancient Irish religious and mythic tradition Tara was the sacred home of the 'Ari' ('Ari-ish'), who were ranked above 'the people' yet below the 'ILLI'. He states, "The Irish make clear that post-cataclysm Atlantean mythology, including that of the blue stones, originated in Ireland and spread to Sumeria, Egypt and India…and Southern France".
In 'The Blue Stones of Atlantis' Henry relates news of a major discovery by Conor Newman, an archaeology lecturer at the National University of Ireland, who in 1992 located a large subterranean temple at Tara using underground radar. At the crown of the hill radar indicated a huge, oval-shaped monument measuring about 170 meters at its widest point. Eventually, 300 postholes measuring two meters wide were found encircling the oval. From 'The Blue Stones':
"Among other uses the blue stones, called Blue Apples in Southern France, were used to open gateways or passages to other realms. Gnostic Christians maintain they were present at the Crucifixion. Afterwards, they were in the possession of the Cathars who were taught the secrets of the blue stones by Jesus. According to Irish belief, E.A. is the root for Iessa, the Holy Spirit, or Jesus." […]
"The Sumerians called them Anunnaki (literally NUN, 'fish', of AKI, 'light'), which explains why the Irish called them the 'Lords of Light' or Illi. They were led by E.A. and brought with them four treasures or power tools: the (S)tone of Destiny, the (S)word of Destiny, the Cup of Destiny, and the Staff or Spear of Destiny. These treasures were housed in the so-called Cave of Treasures, inside the Mountain of God, where burns a perpetual flame.
"Tara was considered the Mountain of God, as well as the Illi's gateway or Ish-Tar Gate to the etheric Otherworld. Passage tombs dot the surrounding countryside. The passage tombs or mounds are called Sidhe (pronounced 'she'), a pun on the She People or Shining Ones (the She-Ning Ones) who adored Ana, the Great Mother of All Living. From the earliest dawn of Irish mythology Keltic rites were performed here." […]
In another work titled 'Secrets of the Cathars' William Henry writes: "The Book of Numbers (13) tells us Joshua stole these blue stones, symbolized by a cluster of enormously heavy grapes, from the Anunnaki at the valley of Eschol and returned them to Moses along with a warning, "the land there eateth the people up". I have interpreted this cryptic phrase as meaning the Anunanki were operating a gateway that caused people to vanish. The blue stones symbolized this gateway.
Yin/Yang + Third Factor = Triskele (or Triskelion)
Now we have several strong hints about the symbolic meaning of the Trident in the Ukraine Coat-of-Arms. How do these hints relate to current events in the post-Soviet Ukraine?
Agent's comment: "A big clue could be that the people on the streets now don't allow provocation of violence - as this could have been the real goal of the men behind the curtains."
Repeating from above: Trident (Trisula): a three-pronged trident symbolizes the three fundamental powers of will, action, and knowledge (Icca, Kriya, and Inana). The trident also symbolizes deity's power to destroy evil and ignorance.
More to come! Stay Tuned!!
