The Secret History of Mankind Embedded in Myths of Paradise
It is now possible to reconstitute the
secret history of Mankind so masterfully illustrated by the Egyptian temple.
Humanity was born in Punt (Indonesia), where the two original races of
Man represented by Adam and Eve first sprung to life. Adam, the Red, eventually
mingled with Eve ("the Great Mother" =
Ava), and engendered the
The race of Adam was that of the Chamites
(or "Reds"), the sons of God. The one of Eve was that of the Aryans (or
"Whites"), the Peoples of the Goddess. The third race was the one of the
Semites, the hybrids of the first two. This is the marriage of the Sons of God
and the Daughters of Men mentioned in
Genesis 6 as the actual cause
of the Flood and of the destruction of Atlantis-Paradise. But, not impossibly,
the ruddy races of Adam were the Cro-Magnons, the one of Eve were the Neandertals
and the third one were us, their hybrid sons. Only further ethno-genetic research will
be able to tell with certainty if this ancient tradition is really true, as we believe it is. Would our wise ancestors go to such a trouble just to tell us, their children, a lie?
This mingling the Original Sin resulted
in the uncontrolled breeding and the consequent overpopulation of the earth
which can only lead to famine, war and, finally, the destruction of the
earth and the end of the Atlantean era, just as is apparently happening
nowadays. In other words, the Bible is indeed right. But its correctness
works at a far deeper level than is usually presumed, one so fantastically
real that not even the hardiest of zealots ever dared to dream.
The Egyptians embodied, in their eschatological
rituals the ones sacralized in their wonderful temples and their spells
of the Book of the Dead the very history of Atlantis in every detail.
Moreover, they clearly identified Atlantis with Paradise, and even gave
the recipe of the wonderful news: the one that we can indeed be saved by
divine grace and return to our Lost Paradise in the company of the gods,
by being identified with Osiris and Pharaoh. Indeed a beautiful message,
the same one as that of the
Gospels, the evangel we somehow distorted
into a purely spiritual alias, the one of the never-never-land of Heaven.
We know that many of our assertions above
will seem vaunted and ill-founded to many of our dear readers. But they
are the fruit of many years of research, and are founded upon strictly scientific arguments
that cannot be given here in full. The reader interested in further details
is invited to read Part II of this essay, below, where the
symbolism of the Egyptian temple is compared to the one of other nations
and different religions. Better yet, he is invited to read our books on Alchemy, on Atlantis, and on related matters. We recognize the fact that most if not all doctrines herein expounded are not only difficult to follow, let alone believe. But they are the Truth, and nothing but the Truth, just as Plato repeatedly affirmed. When the Light the Light that radiates from the Primordial Cave is too much, it can be obfuscating. But light can only blind the bats and other such nocturnal vermin.
The word hypostyle comes from the Greek
("pillar"). The term means a room with pillars that
support the roof (usually heavy and having an upper structure above it)
from below. As we shall see, this peculiar structure has a most direct
connection with Atlantis. In many places such as Dendera and Kom Ombo,
the temple is fully hypostyle and subterranean, and the city is built directly
above the roof.
Actually, in contrast to the modern religions
such as Christianism, the Hades (or "Hell") of the ancients was very pleasurable
and, indeed, a sort of idyllic Paradise where the dead spent their time
in endless hunts and banquets. Clearly, this "Celestial Egypt" was Punt,
the Realm of the Dead and the Land of the Gods.
Punt was indeed the First
Egypt whence the Egyptians originally came when the region sunk underground,
forcing them to leave. As we shall see, this underground Egypt is no other
than sunken Atlantis, characterized by its sturdy, world-supporting pillars
and its many palm-trees and papyrus covered marshes.
3 Certain Gnostic gospels explicitly identify the Holy Ghost as the Mother of Christ, the Celestial counterpart of the terrestrial Virgin Mary. And the role of Gabriel - whose name means something like "God's Male" - at the Annunciation (Luke I:26-38) is far from clear. Sex changes of Celestial beings are rather frequent, gods and angels being indeed androgynous in character.
The walls of Atlantis were plated with bronze,
tin and orichalc, according to the texts of Plato. Obviously, the Egyptians
were unable to embody this costly feature on their walls. Many ancient
Theog. 723; Virgil,
Aen. 540, etc.) tell how the walls
of Tartarus, the realm of Hades, were triple and bronzy, being garnished
with a lofty defense tower at the front gate. Hades (or Tartarus) is, indeed,
an allegory of sunken Atlantis, turned infernal after the cataclysm that
As is clear, it is hard not
to see that the Egyptian temples, with their triple walls and lofty towers,
were indeed an imitation of Atlantis, whose features they paralled very
closely. The descriptions of the Duat or Amenti the Egyptian equivalent
of the Elysium or Islands of the Blest, with its towers, walls and pylons,
its well-watered gardens, and its canals and districts that one can read
about in the Book of the Dead, are too perfect a replica of Atlantis to
allow any doubts about its identification with the sunken continent.
It is not conceivable, then, that the Egyptians were merely inventing a
legend when they told the story of Atlantis and its demise to Solon, through
whom it reached Plato.
It seems that the legendary Karibus (or Cherubs)
that guarded the Gates of Paradise in all mythologies were a personification
of the barbaric custom. Indeed, the word karibu ultimately derives from
karippu ("skewer", "spit"), related to the Greek
khara, and several other bases meaning more or less the same. Many legends
tell of the habit of the Guardians of Paradise skewering their victims
as a punishment for trespassing. One such is the tradition on Cerberus,
the guardian dog of Hades that had the bad habit of thus "caressing" trespassers
in the infernal realms he guarded.
The name of Java (or Yava, etc.) also applied
to Sumatra, its twin, from which it became separated by the colossal explosion
that razed Atlantis, built right on top its volcano, the Krakatoa. The
ancients had a fatal attraction for volcanoes, which bring abundance at
a price, due to the fertilization of the soil effected by their ashes.
It is clear that the legendary Ophir where King Solomon and Hiram of Tyre
fetched their wood could not have been the desertic Lebanon. Otherwise,
they would have sailed from the Mediterranean Sea, and not from the Red
Sea (Ezion Geber) as they did. So did the Egyptians, by the way, as we read in their annals.
In Egyptian, the
marks the feminine, so that the original name must be
Poani). The Phoenicians were called
Poeni by the Romans, visibly the same name as
except for the feminine ending. It is known that, originally, the Phoenicians
came from beyond the ocean (Indian), which they crossed when their original
birthplace was destroyed, settling in the Near East. As we argue elsewhere,
the Phoenicians really came from the Primordial Phoenicia that is indeed
Punt/Indonesia. So did the Egyptians and, also, the Aryans, the Jews,
and many other ancient nations as well.
In Greek, the word
("phoenix") means "palm-tree", so that the primordial Phoenicia was "the
Land of the Palm Trees". Indonesia is really the Land of the Palm-trees
and, particularly, of the most useful of them all, the coconut palm. According
to Egyptian legends, the Phoenix bird, the "soul" of Phoenicia, came to
Heliopolis from beyond the ocean (Indian), from Punt (the Island of Fire)
every time an era ended. This was a direct recollection of the primordial
migration we just discussed. These Proto-Phoenicians are, as we show elsewhere, the pre-Dynastic Gerzeans, well-known from the archeological records of the Nagada cemeteries in Upper Egypt.
