Astrological Cycles And Ages


  By Malik H. Jabbar


Chapter Four:   "The Great Cycle Of Axis Rotation"


Within this chapter we shall discuss those large cycles that instigate dramatic changes in our earthly environment , and climax with the grandest of the earthly cycles, which is the cycle that I call the Great  Cycle  of Axis  Rotation , a cycle that spans 2,160,000 years. We shall uncover some of the obscure methods  by which the Ancients tracked and recorded those large cycles. We shall explain the astronomical variations that indicate the opening and closing of various stellar cycles that serve as profound indicators of significant alterations in the earthly environment. Witness now these following passages from the Book of Enoch, that will aid in our explanations:


Book Of Enoch: Chapter 18: 14 –16: 14And there I beheld seven stars, like great blazing mountains, and like spirits  entreating me. 15Then the angel said, This place, until the consummation of heaven and earth, will be the prison of the stars, and the host of heaven. 16The stars which roll over fire are those which transgressed the commandment of God before their time arrived; for they came not in their proper season. Therefore was He offended with them, and bound them, until the period of the consummation of their crimes in the secret year


Book Of Enoch: Chapter 64: 1 – 4, 9 – 10: 1In those days Noah saw that the earth became inclined, and that destruction approached. 2Then he lifted up his feet, and went to the ends of the earth, to the dwelling of his great -grandfather Enoch. 3And Noah cried with a bitter voice, Hear me; hear me; hear me: three times. And he said, Tell me what is transacting upon the earth; for the earth labours, and is violently shaken. Surely I shall perish with it. 4After this there was a great perturbation on earth, and a voice was heard from heaven. I fell down on my face, when my great-grandfather Enoch came and stood by me.


Book Of Enoch: Chapter 65: 1 – 2: 1After this he showed me the angels of punishment, who were prepared to come, and to open all the mighty waters under the earth: 2That they may be for judgment, and for the destruction of all those who remain and dwell upon the earth.


Book Of Enoch: Chapter 66: 3 – 7, 13 – 14: 3The seed of life shall arise from it, and a change shall take place, that the dry land shall not be left empty. I will establish your seed before me for ever and ever, and the seed of those who dwell with you on the surface of the earth. It shall be blessed and multiplied in the presence of the earth, in the name of the Lord. 4And they shall confine those angels who disclosed impiety. In that burning valley it is, that they shall be confined, which at first  my great -grandfather Enoch showed me in the west, where there were mountains of gold and silver, of iron, of fluid metal, and of tin. 5I beheld that valley in which there was great perturbation, and where the waters were troubled.6And when all this was effected, from the fluid mass of fire, and the perturbation which prevailed (62)in that place, there arose a strong smell of sulphur, which became mixed with the waters; and the valley of the angels, who had been guilty of seduction, burned underneath its soil. 7Through that valley also rivers of fire were flowing, to which those angels shall be condemned, who seduced the inhabitants of the earth …….13In those days shall the waters of that valley be changed; for when the angels shall be judged, then shall the heat of those springs of water experience an alteration. 14And when the angels shall ascend, the water of the springs shall again undergo a change, and be frozen. Then I heard holy  Michael answering and saying, This judgment, with which the angels shall be judged, shall bear testimony against the kings, the princes, and those who possess the earth


Indeed the scenarios depicted in the Book of Enoch are very ominous and foreboding - the book clearly describes earthly upheavals that threaten the lives of the earth ’s inhabitants. Actually that which the Book of Enoch is describing is clearly an earthly upheaval, that is to say, a violent climatic and geographical restructuring of the planet, caused by the natural cyclical processes of nature  – and not by an angry god, as the unenlightened and superstitious tend to believe.


A natural earthly upheaval is clearly evident by the assertions made within the book that the waters (lakes, rivers, seas, underground deposits) were expanded beyond their prior boundaries:“open all the mighty waters under the earth ”, “3The seed of life shall arise from it, and a change shall take place, that the dry land shall not be left empty.” Also noted, are changes in the climate from Temperate zones  to Arctic zones: “13In those days shall the waters of that valley be changed; for when the angels  shall be judged, then shall the heat of those springs of water experience an alteration. 14And when the angels shall ascend, the water of the springs shall again undergo a change, and be frozen.” Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are indicated: “6And when all this was effected, from the fluid mass of fire, and the perturbation which prevailed (62) in that place, there arose a strong smell of sulphur, which became mixed with the waters; and the valley of the angels, who had been guilty of seduction, burned underneath its soil. 7Through that valley also rivers of fire were flowing”. Above all, the indicator and forecaster of these cataclysms is identified as the changing attitude of the earth’s axis: 1In those days Noah saw that the earth became inclined, and that destruction approached.


 It cannot be any clearer - the Ancients, as noted in the Book of Enoch have pinpointed the changing attitude of the earth’s axial inclination as the harbinger or indicator of great earthly upheavals: “1In those days Noah saw that the earth became inclined, and that destruction approached.” And we assert further that the Ancients were successful in measuring the rate or cycle that governed the change of the earth’s inclination, and that many of the mythological symbolisms of the monotheistic scriptures, and symbolisms of other ancient cultures were actually geared toward tracking the gradual migration of the earth’s axis i.e. the Great Cycle of Axis Rotation.

In truth the earth is continuously transfiguring itself, climatically and geographically, over thousands  and millions of years. Unfortunately many of us think that current climate  conditions are the norm, but in fact the planet does not have a climatic norm over the long term – unless you want to call change the norm. The inhabitable regions of our planet undergo continuous transformations, variations, and relocations over the millennia, over many, many thousands of years. Of course, some who have studied these issues assert that some changes come quickly, and catastrophically; however I, in this essay, am focused on measured changes as indicated in the mythology  of the Ancients. It is this measured altering of the earthly environment that I shall explain as we proceed, or more accurately I should say that I shall explain the symbolism related to this change, and some of the methods used by the Ancients in tracking time, related to the earth’s axial  migration. 


The Ancients  discovered that many of the earth’s upheavals and/or drastic alterations of the climate were associated with the changing obliquity  of the ecliptic, that is to say the tilt of the earth’s axis to the Plane  of the Ecliptic. Hence the tracking of this gradual change in the earth’s axial orientation became of extreme importance – and much of the symbolism of the scriptures as well as the architecture of various temples and monuments were actually geared toward tracking the Great Cycle of Axis Rotation.


 As I have already noted, the Great  Cycle  of Axis  Rotation  completes itself in the course of a cycle ..............

Excerpt from Chapter Three


The Trinity  And Christ  As Defined Under Paleo-Gnostic  Symbolism


Read Complete Book

 

The trinity is part of the old wisdom; it did not commence with the advent of Christian doctrine. The trinity symbolizes the tripartite structure of the Creator and his Creation, as surmised by the Ancients . The first aspect of the trinity was the Father, the Unknowable Creator, thought to be pure spirit; the second aspect was the mother i.e. matter, and the third aspect was the son, the heir of spirit and matter, and the blending of both.

According to Plato  and others, god the Father or pure spirit was the First Cause, that emanated this universe into physical existence. Hence we could use the phrase that god begat this universe or that this universe is the first or only begotten image  or the Son of god. This universe was the spirit or will of god made material or incarnate just as Jesus was the word made flesh or incarnate, according to the bible  – this is pure symbolism. As we know, the person called Jesus Christ never existed in actual history, and his allegorical life is, in fact, a symbolical rendition of solar cycles for the most part. But, under the esoteric  symbolism, in relation to the nature of god - Jesus and the trinity represent more than just the sun. The dual allegory of the trinity, inclusive of #1 the Father (Source), the Holy Spirit (Emanation), and the Son (Macrocosm, as spirit evolved to material form); or #2 the Father (Spirit), the Mother  (Matter), and the Son (Macrocosm as spirit blended to matter) is fundamental to the ageless concepts that the Ancients  held in regards to the creation and maintenance of the universe i.e. #1 creation by emanation or #2 creation by the impregnation of Spirit into Matter. Both methods leave us with the Son, that is to say the macrocosmic universe, as the issue of god, and a blend of god’s spirit and formed matter. But the first method of Emanation makes the son the direct issue and essence of god, being a materialized clone of god if you will, whereas the second method of impregnation makes the son imbued with the spirit of god, but not in himself (itself) one (of the same essence) with god.

They determined that the First Cause  of all existence was indefinable, unknowable, and invisible (not seeable or comprehensible); and this First Cause was identified as god, the Creator, pure spirit, knowledge, and wisdom to a degree that the human mind could not fathom; therefore they described this, the Creator god, as being without a name, that his name could not be uttered or pronounced, that he could not be seen with human eyes. This was their picturesque way of saying that the original Creator god of this universe was beyond human understanding. A name is an appellation that indicates identity and specific designation to an entity, so their saying that the Creator god had no pronounceable name was synonymous to saying that they could not define him. So this unseen and unknowable god became the god of gods in the theologies of the Ancients, a god that may not have been worshipped directly, but rather felt in the heart or imagined in the mind.

The lesser gods of matter (Idols) or conceptualized spirits, were imaged and idolized in accordance with the best and highest concepts that man could imagine, and worshipped accordingly. They determined that the god of gods was of such purity and divinity that any form of contact with man (matter) would be an unallowable defilement of this incomprehensible deity. Mankind required a mediator or intercessor as an avenue to the worship of the ineffable god. They determined that the ineffable god was the creator of all, and was itself, pure spirit, undefiled by matter; and that the universe was an emanation from the mind (Essence) of god, created by his Will, his Word, his Thought. They surmised that the creation of the universe was the result of the ineffable god clothing his thoughts in the form of matter, by his Will and Command. Some of them said that the world actually existed in the Mind of the Ineffable god and was therefore sustained by the Mind of the unknowable god. The Creator god is the first person of the trinity; he is the Father , and the Father is synonymous to the First Cause – a force that is beyond the scope of human logic to properly define.


Cosmic symbolism of Jesus Christ


All life is cause and effect; every action that takes place is the result of some stimulus or stimuli; nothing just happens without a cause or causes. Every effect was preceded by a cause, and that cause was once an effect that was preceded by another cause. When this process of cause and effect is retraced through the infinite past, we arrive at the first cause of all, and the First Cause  of all was labeled by the Ancients  as the unknowable god, the Father and Creator


The second  or to put it more accurately, the third person of the trinity, i.e. the son, represents an emanation of the Father. The First Born (First Creation) that the Father emanated was the universe itself, as determined by the sages of old. They looked upon the Living universe as a creation spawned by the mind, word or will of god. All life proceeded forth from him and existed as spirit, as formless word or thought or wisdom or will in his mind before being made manifest in matter as matter. In their view, the whole universe contained the spirit (soul) of god and was sustained by this spirit. They saw the Living Universe as the instrument of god, the law of god, the image  of god, and lord. They saw the living universe as the emanation (begotten son) of god, that ruled and punished by divine sanction.


Jesus Christ , as the incorruptible lord, is in accordance with the symbolism of nature as incorruptible, in that nature has no volition. Nature cannot sin, so to speak, because it has no will of its own, only the god ordained spirit  (soul ) that drives it. Jesus was a symbol of the cosmos (macrocosm), programmed  nature, and as such was incorruptible – because nature is a blind god, so to speak, without a will of its own. The universe is incorruptible, meaning it cannot sin (err, deviate) because the universe does not have a will of its own - it lacks volition. The universe is a machine, incapable of altering any of god’s commands, but the universe is also lord and commander of all. Everything is subject to the laws  of nature (symbolized by Jesus Christ) hence the universe/nature is lord and ruler. But the universe is not the god, as some may believe; but rather lord and ruler – the First Cause (god) is unknowable The First Cause was perceived as non-matter, of a completely vacuous nature, devoid of all material substance, without limits (dimensions), without beginning or end, timeless. The state of immaterial  being, which is god, cannot be measured within parameters defined by the laws of matter - all of which is incomprehensible to us. God (as surmised by the Ancients) sent (emanated) his son (macrocosm) to rule i.e. universal nature as lord and master. The fact that most Christians have forgotten that God The Father exists and choose to heap all their praises upon the son (Jesus) as lord is correct theology, according to the ancient symbolism.

Introduction


Finally, we have accomplished what I believe is the definitive book on Religious Mythology. We have explained the “common thread” that is the genitive root of all the world’s popular religions, inclusive of Monotheism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and various other religions, some current and some extinguished in history. We have identified certain arcane concepts of Gnosticism that are pervasive throughout all the prominent religious cultures of history, and we have exposed and proven the source from which these ecclesiastical concepts were derived. We have explained how and why the concepts were generated, and we have proven logically and mathematically the natural genesis, and evolution  of these concepts – from the physics of nature to the spirits of theology.


Within the first section of the book we explain how cultural  programming effectively indoctrinates or conditions society , and programs the human psyche to accept and “not resist” (question or investigate) the assertions of illogical and mythical theological concepts. We explain many of the illusions and misconceptions of our cultures, and how these various myths  have been intertwined with actual history so as to become indistinguishable. We expound on the inter-workings of culture on the uninformed minds of youth (from toddlers to adults) so as to mold them after any pattern of its cultural choosing – and the difficulties of undoing this mass indoctrination when it has been effectively seeded from infancy into puberty. We explore the cultural creations of the god concept, and the dichotomies of the conscious soul and the so-called immortal soul, allegedly descended from god and destined to return to god.


 We unveil the True Gnosis as opposed to traditional Gnosticism, which is, in fact, another layer of mythological symbolism comparable to that of other mythologically based religions. We trace the origin and development of traditional Gnosticism to its true and lost geneses within the womb of its original formulation, properly described as Paleo-Gnosticism.


We explore the foundations, and sometimes contentious histories  of the two tracks of Gnostic symbolism i.e. Monism and Dualism, and correlate same to the controversy concerning the true nature of the mythical Christ, whether or not he was of the same essence as god , or a Prophet imbued with the spirit of god.


In section two, we exemplify the methodology of Paleo-Gnosticism, the ancient esoteric system by which the encrypted language or symbolism of religious mythology is deciphered. Also, incorporating systems of Paleo-Gnosticism, we bring clarity to some of the most cryptic, arcane allegories of the bible. All biblical, and Quranic mythology, as well as Greek , Hindu, and other mythologies are reflective of natural, cultural, or otherwise operable physical phenomena  or activities such as astronomy, agriculture, seasonal transitions, and various cyclical events, both natural and cultural. We have correlated the symbolisms with their underlying realities by means of mathematical, graphic, and historical proofs.


In section three, we bring clarity to the


mythological symbolism of Jesus Christ , beyond the solar, lunar, and agricultural symbolism that I have already explained, to a significant extent, in my prior writings: The Biggest Lie Ever Told, 4th Edition, and The Astrological Foundation Of The Christ Myth. The symbolism of Christ in the bible  is significantly associated with the Ancient’s perception of the origin of the universe, its nature, and functions. We bring clarity to that symbolism.


In the fourth section, we unveil the cycles of actual earthly destructions, or I should say cataclysms and upheavals, as charted by the Ancients . We explain and prove the methods by which the Ancients tracked these drastic alterations in the earth’s climate and environment. We prove that the Ancients were obsessed with the tracking of Time for reasons not restricted to seasonal transitions, but for reasons relative to violent and/or tormenting environmental variations that span cycles covering hundreds of thousands of years, and more.


In the last section, or epilogue, I offer some personal observations on the evolution  of enlightenment, and the possible structure of future religious  society  as I see it.


Our world is not what it seems to be. The religious systems of the Ancients  followed a two-tier pattern that ran in parallel; each tier or level  of interpretation designed to mesh with and nurture the aspirations of the adherents in accordance with their diverse inclinations, desires and hopes. One tier, the exoteric, accepted religious doctrine  literally, and the other path, the esoteric , looked upon religious doctrine as essentially symbolism. For those who sought comforting spiritual explanations for their existence beyond the mundane, and craved solace for their natural fears of death, there was the exoteric level of religion, garnished with utopian fantasies and exalted promises of rewards and life stretching far into boundless eternity – a heaven  or paradise reserved for those religious devotees that were pure in heart and unquestioning in their faith. On the other hand, for those of more inquiring and skeptical minds, motivated more by a desire to overcome their doubts, and to verify the dictates of their creeds rationally - and additionally, exhorted by a passion to find the hidden truth, there was the avenue of Esotericism or The Mysteries as called by some. In reality, a matrix of answers that inevitably led to more questions, and quizzical solutions that engendered new puzzles; but nevertheless an intriguing system that gave sustenance and challenge to those individuals whose rational minds thirsted and craved for logic.


So we have the exoteric  path that tends to test and lead us by faith , and the esoteric  path that tends to test and lead us by intellect  or science , although the science is veiled under layers or degrees  of mystical symbolism . Whether we follow the path of faith or science, we all, one would think, are desirous of the truth  - but this is not so! There are many that would rather avoid the truth because of the emotional burdens or pain associated with it. There are people who will never, ever submit to a truth that runs contrary to their traditional religious  beliefs  – no matter  how many thousands  of facts are presented in support of the verifiable truth. This is due, in great  part, to the social  programming that I have alluded to in Chapter One of the book. Another problem is fear, fear of loosing social direction or affiliation - because if one admits or acknowledges that his or her life’s cherished traditions  are based on lies and/or misconceptions , hence an illusion  – where does one go from that point forward – where then lies the meaning and purpose of life? Actually their fears, though understandable, are in fact unwarranted; because in most cases if one has the courage to abandon his or her illusions, one discovers that the illusion was, in fact, a blackened veil, a cloak of darkness  that effectively obscured the bright and healing rays of intellectual enlightenment, which when attained, inevitably leads to emotional and spiritual  comfort.  Be that as it may, historically, the majority, the masses have always favored illusion over truth – just as people generally favor flattery over criticism. Most people prefer being emotional comfortable, even if that comfort is bought by turning a blind eye to some uncomfortable realities.
