This is a reworked chapter for "Thoth is Enoch". Now, coming to reading about Thoth in the "Emerald Tablets", I began to spiral into the mysteries of who Thoth is, and how He connects to the one called "Enoch" and "Hermes".
Now, before we begin, we must understand the different concepts that pertains to Enoch. There are numbers that are extremely significant to Enoch, that are spread throughout the Mythological world. The numbers are "3" for "Thrice great Hermes" or "Hermes Trismesgistus". The Trinity is shown as "3", as this is shown throughout the Mythos (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, Osiris, Isis, Horus, God, Son, Holy Ghost etc.) Then there is the number "7", as He is considered the "7th" son from Adam (See the Movie "7th Son with Jeff Bridges). Then of course, the Muslims would circumambulate around the Kaaba "7" times, to even Nasa's "Chevron" or "Vector" symbology of 7 (See "Military symbols"). Then there is the number "72", as Set's "72" followers tried to kill Isis, before the birth of Horus. Then there is the "72" languages that Melek Taus (Peacock angel) had given to Adam's lineage, and then the "72" shapeshifting techniques of Sun wukong.
Then there is the number "365" for Enoch was "365" years when he was taken up to Heaven. Then there is Thoth gambling for the moon to give 1/72 of its light, and to get extra "5" days from "360" to "365", thus overcoming Ra's curse for the Goddess Nut to bear her children. To which connects to the creation of the Calendar, for 365 days in a year. Then there is the number "500" and "1000", meaning this is the year the "Phoenix" goes through the cycle of "Rebirth".
"500" is the number of years Sun Wukong was trapped under the rock, as he was imprisoned by the Buddha. Then there is the number "1000" years in Revelations 20, as an angel comes to bind the dragon for "1000" years, until he is loosed from his prison. This is an esoteric symbol connecting to the lifespan of the "Phoenix", which is "Pa-Hanok" meaning the "House of Enoch" .
(The movie Moana details "Maui", a Demigod who had stolen fire from the underworld. As a result, he was to be stranded on an Island for "1000" years, until Moana sets him free, thus revealing a very subtle message behind a children's movie)
Before we go into the "Emerald Tablets", we will understand who Enoch is. It's noted that there will be information from the "Galactic Warfare" series, and will bring in newer information. Here in the Wiki states of Enoch: "Enoch is a biblical figure prior to Noah's flood and the son of Jared and father of Methuselah. He was of the Antediluvian period in the Hebrew Bible. The text of the Book of Genesis says Enoch lived 365 years before he was taken by God."
"The text reads that Enoch "walked with God: and he was no more; for God took him" (Gen 5:21–24), which is interpreted as Enoch's entering heaven alive in some Jewish and Christian traditions, and interpreted differently in others. Enoch is the subject of many Jewish and Christian traditions. He was considered the author of the Book of Enoch and also called the scribe of judgment. In the New Testament, Enoch is referenced in the Gospel of Luke, the Epistle to the Hebrews, and in the Epistle of Jude, the last of which also quotes from it."
"Enoch appears in the Book of Genesis of the Pentateuch as the seventh of the ten pre-Deluge Patriarchs. Genesis recounts that each of the pre-Flood Patriarchs lived for several centuries. Genesis 5 provides a genealogy of these ten figures (from Adam to Noah), providing the age at which each fathered the next, and the age of each figure at death."
"Enoch is considered by many to be the exception, who is said to "not see death" (Hebrews 11:5). Furthermore, Genesis 5:22–24 states that Enoch lived 365 years, which is shorter than other pre-Flood Patriarchs, who are all recorded as dying at over 700 years of age. The brief account of Enoch in Genesis 5 ends with the cryptic note that "he was not; for God took him".
Three extensive Apocrypha are attributed to Enoch: "The Book of Enoch (aka 1 Enoch), composed in Hebrew or Aramaic and preserved in Ge'ez, first brought to Europe by James Bruce from Ethiopia and translated into English by August Dillmann and Reverent Schoode – recognized by the Orthodox Tewahedo churches and usually dated between the third century BC and the first century AD."
"2 Enoch (aka Book of the Secrets of Enoch), preserved in Old Church Slavonic, and first translated in English by William Morfill – usually dated to the first century AD." "3 Enoch, a Rabbinic text in Hebrew usually dated to the fifth century AD. These recount how Enoch was taken up to Heaven and was appointed guardian of all the celestial treasures, chief of the archangels, and the immediate attendant on the Throne of God."
"He was subsequently taught all secrets and mysteries and, with all the angels at his back, fulfils of his own accord whatever comes out of the mouth of God, executing His decrees. Much esoteric literature like the 3 Enoch identifies Enoch as the Metatron, the angel which communicates God's word."
"In consequence, Enoch was seen, by this literature, and the Rabbinic kabbalah of Jewish mysticism, as having been the one which communicated God's revelation to Moses, in particular, the dictator of the Book of Jubilees."
Enoch in classical Rabbinical literature: "In classical Rabbinical literature, there are various views of Enoch. One view regarding Enoch that was found in the Targum Pseudo-Jonathan, which thought of Enoch as a pious man, taken to Heaven, and receiving the title of Safra rabba (Great scribe). After Christianity was completely separated from Judaism, this view became the prevailing rabbinical idea of Enoch's character and exaltation. According to Rashi [from Genesis Rabbah], "Enoch was a righteous man, but he could easily be swayed to return to do evil. Therefore, the Holy One, blessed be He, hastened and took him away and caused him to die before his time."
"For this reason, Scripture changed [the wording] in [the account of] his demise and wrote, 'and he was no longer' in the world to complete his years." Among the minor Midrashim, esoteric attributes of Enoch are expanded upon. In the Sefer Hekalot, Rabbi Ishmael is described as having visited the Seventh Heaven, where he met Enoch, who claims that earth had, in his time, been corrupted by the demons Shammazai, and Azazel, and so Enoch was taken to Heaven to prove that God was not cruel."
"Similar traditions are recorded in Sirach. Later elaborations of this interpretation treated Enoch as having been a pious ascetic, who, called to mix with others, preached repentance, and gathered (despite the small number of people on Earth) a vast collection of disciples, to the extent that he was proclaimed king. Under his wisdom, peace is said to have reigned on earth, to the extent that he is summoned to Heaven to rule over the sons of God."
Enoch in Islam: "Idris (prophet) In Islam, Enoch (Arabic: أَخْنُوخ, romanized: ʼAkhnūkh) is commonly identified with Idris, as for example by the History of Al-Tabari interpretation and the Meadows of Gold. The Quran contains two references to Idris; in Surah Al-Anbiya (The Prophets) verse number 85, and in Surah Maryam (Mary) verses 56–57: (The Prophets, 21:85):
"And the same blessing was bestowed upon Ismail and Idris and Zul-Kifl, because they all practised fortitude." (Mary 19:56–57): "And remember Idris in the Book; he was indeed very truthful, a Prophet. And We lifted him to a lofty station". Idris is closely linked in Muslim tradition with the origin of writing and other technical arts of civilization, including the study of astronomical phenomena, both of which Enoch is credited with in the Testament of Abraham."
"Nonetheless, although some Muslims view Enoch and Idris as the same prophet while others do not, many Muslims still honor Enoch as one of the earliest prophets, regardless of which view they hold. Idris seems to be less mysterious in the Qur'an than Enoch is in the Bible. Furthermore, Idris is the only Antediluvian prophet in Islam, other than Adam."
Now, let's look at the Prophet "Idris", and see the connections: "ʾIdrīs (Arabic: إدريس) is an ancient prophet mentioned in the Quran, whom Muslims believe was the third prophet after Seth. He is the second prophet mentioned in the Quran. Islamic tradition has unanimously identified Idris with the biblical Enoch, although many Muslim scholars of the classical and medieval periods also held that Idris and Hermes Trismegistus were the same person. He is described in the Quran as "trustworthy" and "patient" and the Quran also says that he was "exalted to a high station".
"Because of this and other parallels, traditionally Idris has been identified with the biblical Enoch, and Islamic tradition usually places Idris in the early Generations of Adam, and considers him one of the oldest prophets mentioned in the Quran, placing him between Adam and Noah. Idris' unique status inspired many future traditions and stories surrounding him in Islamic folklore."
"According to hadith, narrated by Malik ibn Anas and found in Sahih Muslim, it is said that on Muhammad's Night Journey, he encountered Idris in the fourth heaven. The traditions that have developed around the figure of Idris have given him the scope of a prophet as well as a philosopher and mystic, and many later Muslim mystics, or Sufis, including Ruzbihan Baqli and Ibn Arabi, also mentioned having encountered Idris in their spiritual visions." "The name Idris (إدريس) has been described as perhaps having the origin of meaning "interpreter." Traditionally, Islam holds the prophet as having functioned an interpretive and mystical role and therefore this meaning garnered a general acceptance. Later Muslim sources, those of the eighth century, began to hold that Idris had two names, "Idris" and "Enoch," and other sources even stated that "Idris' true name is Enoch and that he is called Idris in Arabic because of his devotion to the study of the sacred books of his ancestors Adam and Seth."
"Therefore, these later sources also highlighted Idris as either meaning "interpreter" or having some meaning close to that of an interpretive role. Several of the classical commentators on the Quran, such as Al-Baizawi, said he was "called Idris from the Arabic dars, meaning "to study," from his knowledge of divine mysteries."
Enoch: "Idris is generally accepted to be the same as Enoch, the patriarch who lived in the Generations of Adam. Many Qur'anic commentators, such as al-Tabari and Qadi Baydawi, identified Idris with Enoch. Baizawi said, "Idris was of the posterity of Seth and a forefather of Noah, and his name was Enoch (Ar. Akhnukh)" Bursalı İsmail Hakkı's commentary on Fuṣūṣ al-Ḥikam by ibn ʿArabi. Modern scholars, however, do not concur with this identification because they argue that it lacks definitive proof."
"As translator Abdullah Yusuf Ali says in note 2508 of his translation of the Quran: Idris is mentioned twice in the Quran, viz., here and in Chapter 21, verse 85, where he is mentioned as among those who patiently persevered." "His identification with the Biblical Enoch, may or may not be correct. Nor are we justified in interpreting verse 57 here as meaning the same thing as in Genesis, v.24 ("God took him"), that he was taken up without passing through the portals of death. All we are told is he was a man of truth and sincerity, and a prophet, and that he had a high position among his people. — Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an: Text, Translation and Commentary With this identification, Idris's father becomes Yarid (يريد), his mother Barkanah, and his wife Aadanah. Idris's son Methuselah would eventually be the grandfather of Nuh (Noah). Hence Idris is identified as the great-grandfather of Noah."
Hermes Trismegistus: "A late Arabic writer wrote of the Sabaeans that their religion had a sect of star worshipers who held their doctrine to come from Hermes Trismegistus (a syncretic combination of the Greek god Hermes and the Egyptian god Thoth, and purported author of the Hermetica) through the prophet Adimun."
"Antoine Faivre, in The Eternal Hermes (1995), has pointed out that Hermes Trismegistus has a place in the Islamic tradition, although the name Hermes does not appear in the Quran. Hagiographers and chroniclers of the first centuries of the Islamic Hegira quickly identified Hermes Trismegistus with Idris, the Prophet of surat 19.56-57 and 21.85, whom the Arabs also identified with Enoch (cf. Genesis 5.18–24). Idris/Hermes was termed "Thrice-Wise" Hermes Trismegistus because he had a threefold origin. The first Hermes, comparable to Thoth, was a "civilizing hero", an initiator into the mysteries of the divine science and wisdom that animate the world; he carved the principles of this sacred science in Egyptian hieroglyphs. The second Hermes, in Babylon, was the initiator of Pythagoras."
"The third Hermes was the first teacher of alchemy. "A faceless prophet," writes the Islamicist Pierre Lory, "Hermes possesses no concrete or salient characteristics, differing in this regard from most of the major figures of the Bible and the Quran."
"A common interpretation of the representation of "Trismegistus" as "thrice great" recalls the three characterizations of Idris: as a messenger of god, or a prophet; as a source of wisdom, or hikmet (wisdom from hokhmah); and as a king of the world order, or a "sultanate". These are referred to as müselles bin ni'me."
Here the "Emerald Tablets" would detail the "7 Lords of Arulu", who are said to control the "cycles" and lives of mankind. This connects to the "Seven Angels" in the Book of Revelation, who also hold the power, and are said to be in charge of the "Seven Churches". With that being said, these descriptions state that the being in Revelations (Jade Emperor), having fire and glory all around Him, is the "Dweller" in the "Emerald Tablets".
Here is an excerpt from the "Emerald Tablets": "Long in my youth I traveled the pathway, seeking ever new knowledge to gain. Until after much striving, one of the THREE, to me brought the LIGHT. Brought HE to me the commands of the DWELLER, called me from the darkness into the LIGHT. Brought HE me, before the DWELLER, deep in the Temple before the great FIRE."
"There on the great throne, beheld I, the DWELLER, clothed with the LIGHT and flashing with fire. Down I knelt before that great wisdom, feeling the LIGHT flowing through me in waves. Heard I then the voice of the DWELLER: "O darkness, come into the Light. Long have ye sought the pathway to LIGHT. Each soul on earth that loosens its fetters, shall soon be made free from the bondage of night. Forth from the darkness have ye arisen, closer approached the Light of your goal. Here ye shall dwell as one of my children, keeper of records gathered by wisdom, instrument thou of the LIGHT from beyond."
"Ready by thou made to do what is needed, preserver of wisdom through the ages of darkness, that shall come fast on the children of men. Live thee here and drink of all wisdom. Secrets and mysteries unto thee shall unveil."
Now, does this not link with what Enoch , as he was considered a Scribe as well? Lets look at the "Book of Enoch" chapter 12:4 and 5: "And behold the Watchers called me Enoch the scribe. Then the Lord said to me: Enoch, scribe of righteousness..."
Thus, the Dweller is the one who lives below the earth and the "Flower of fire", and is the one called "Ancient of days" as they call it. The same is described by Thoth when He was lifted to Heaven. Now lets look at the "Book of Enoch" on Enoch's description of the God in Heaven in Chapter 14:
"A vision thus appeared to me. 9. Behold, in that vision clouds and a mist invited me; agitated stars and flashes of lightning impelled and pressed me forwards, while winds in the vision assisted my flight, accelerating my progress."
"10. They elevated me aloft to heaven. I proceeded, until I arrived at a wall built with stones of crystal. A vibrating flame surrounded it, which began to strike me with terror. 11. Into this vibrating flame I entered; 12. And drew nigh to a spacious habitation built also with stones of crystal. Its walls too, as well as pavement, were formed with stones of crystal, and crystal likewise was the ground."
"Its roof had the appearance of agitated stars and flashes of lightning; and among them were cherubim of fire in a stormy sky. A flame burned around its walls; and its portal blazed with fire. When I entered into this dwelling, it was hot as fire and cold as ice. No trace of delight or of life was there. Terror overwhelmed me, and a fearful shaking seized me."
'13. Violently agitated and trembling, I fell upon my face. In the vision I looked, 14. And behold there was another habitation more spacious than the former, every entrance to which was open before me, erected in the midst of a vibrating flame. 15. So greatly did it excel in all points, in glory, in magnificence, and in magnitude, that it is impossible to describe to you either the splendour or the extent of it." '16. Its floor was on fire; above were lightnings and agitated stars, while its roof exhibited a blazing fire. 17. Attentively I surveyed it, and saw that it contained an exalted throne; 18. The appearance of which was like that of frost; while its circumference resembled the orb of the brilliant sun; and there was the voice of the cherubim."
"19. From underneath this mighty throne rivers of flaming fire issued. 20. To look upon it was impossible. 21. One great in glory sat upon it: 22. Whose robe was brighter than the sun, and whiter than snow. 23. No angel was capable of penetrating to view the face of Him, the Glorious and the Effulgent; nor could any mortal behold Him. A fire was flaming around Him."
"24. A fire also of great extent continued to rise up before Him; so that not one of those who surrounded Him was capable of approaching Him, among the myriads of ‘myriads who were before Him. To Him holy consultation was needless. Yet did not the sanctified, who were near Him, depart far from Him either by night or by day; nor were they removed from Him. I also was so far advanced, with a veil on my face, and trembling. Then the Lord with his own mouth called me, saying, Approach hither, Enoch, at my holy word. 25. And He raised me up, making me draw near even to the entrance. My eye was directed to the ground..."
Chapter 46: "There I beheld the Ancient of days, whose head was like white wool, and with him another, whose countenance resembled that of man. His countenance was full of grace, like that of one of the holy angels." "Then I inquired of one of the angels, who went with me, and who showed me every secret thing, concerning this Son of man; who he was; whence he was; and why he accompanied the Ancient of days. He answered and said to me, This is the Son of man, to whom righteousness belongs; with whom righteousness has dwelt; and who will reveal all the treasures of that which is concealed: for the Lord of spirits has chosen him; and his portion has surpassed all before the Lord of spirits in everlasting uprightness."
"This Son of man, whom thou beholdest, shall raise up kings and the mighty from their couches, and the powerful from their thrones; shall loosen the bridles of the powerful, and break in pieces the teeth of sinners. He shall hurl kings from their thrones and their dominions; because they will not exalt and praise him, nor humble themselves before him, by whom their kingdoms were granted to them."
"The countenance likewise of the mighty shall He cast down, filling them with confusion. Darkness shall be their habitation, and worms shall be their bed; nor from that their bed shall they hope to be again raised, because they exalted not the name of the Lord of spirits."
This will connect to Daniel 7:13,14: "I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed."
In the Emerald Tablets states this Chapter 11: "Key to Above and Below" details the segment "Ancient of Days": "Know ye, O people amongst whom I walk, that I, Thoth, have all of the knowledge and all of the wisdom known, to man since the ancient days. Keeper have I been of the secrets of the great race, holder of the key that leads into life. Bringer up have I been to ye, O my children, even from the darkness of the Ancient of Days."
Then Enoch calls the Almighty God " Ancient of Days" in Chapter 47:3 "At that time I beheld the Ancient of days, while he sat upon the throne of his glory, while the book of the living was opened in his presence, and while all the powers which were above the heavens stood around and before him."
Now, with that said, if you are able to see the comparisons, then you should be able to see that "Enoch" is "Thoth" the scribe of God.
Now, there is a connection of Thoth's travels to the Underworld to release the "Lady of Light", from hands of the Dark Princes of Arulu. Here the connections of the "Lady of Light", would be known as "Persephone", as the one who was abducted by Hades into the underworld, who in turn is rescued by Hermes.
Then based from the "Sumerian Tablets", states that it was "Enki" who came and saved "Erkeshigal", who was abducted by "Kur" (the Underworld). Emerald Tablets chapter 10 "Keys of Time":
"Once in my search for deep buried wisdom, I opened the door that bars THEM from man. Called I from the other planes of being, one who was fairer than the daughters of men. Aye, I called her from out of the spaces, to shine as a Light in the world of men. Used I the drum of the Serpent."
"Wore I the robe of the purple and gold. Placed on my head, I, the crown of Silver. Around me the circle of cinnabar shone. Raised I my arms and cried the invocation that opens the path to the planes beyond, cried to the LORDS of the SIGNS in their houses: Lords of the two horizons, watchers of the treble gates, stand ye One at the right and One at the left as the STAR rises to his throne and rules over his sign."
"Aye, thou dark prince of ARULU, open the gates of the dim, hidden land and release her whom ye keep imprisoned. Hear ye, hear ye, hear ye, dark Lords and Shining Ones, and by their secret names, names which I know and can pronounce, hear ye and obey my will."
"Lit I then with flame my circle and called HER in the space-planes beyond. Daughter of Light return from ARULU. Seven times and seven times have I passed through the fire. Food have I not eaten. Water have I not drunk. I call thee from ARULU, from the realms of EKERSHEGAL."
"I summon thee, lady of Light. Then before me rose the dark figures; aye, the figures of the Lords of Arulu. Parted they before me and forth came the Lady of Light. Free was she now from the LORDS of the night, free to live in the Light of the earth Sun, free to live as a child of the Light."
Now, the name "EKERSHEGAL" of the Emerald Tablets, and "Erkeshigal" of the Sumerian is similar. Then in the Greco-Roman version states here: "Finally, Zeus, pressed by the cries of the hungry people and by the other deities who also heard their anguish, forced Hades to return Persephone. Hades indeed complied with the request, but first he tricked her, giving her some pomegranate seeds to eat."
"Persephone was released by Hermes, who had been sent to retrieve her, but because she had tasted food in the underworld, she was obliged to spend a third of each year (the winter months) there, and the remaining part of the year with the gods above. With the later writers Ovid and Hyginus, Persephone's time in the underworld becomes half the year."
Here is the "Sumerian Records" on Enki from the Wiki: "Based on what little has survived of the account, it seems that the legend begins with the Kur abducting the goddess Ereshkigal and dragging her down to the Netherworld. Enki sets out in a boat to attack the Kur and avenge the abduction of Ereshkigal."
"The Kur is described as defending itself using a storm of hailstones of all sizes and by attacking Enki using the waters beneath the boat. The account never actually tells who the winner of the fight is, but it can probably be assumed that Enki is the ultimate victor."
So, even Enki is described as the one who had to save a Goddess from the Underworld, to which ties with "Thoth" and "Hermes".
Now, in the "Book of Enoch" states that after the flood, the "Ancient of Days" won't create another flood to destroy the earth, as "Genesis 9:11-17" states.
"Book of Enoch" Chapter 54: "Afterwards the Ancient of days repented, and said, In vain have I destroyed all the inhabitants of the earth. 2. And he sware by his great name, saying, Henceforwards I will not act thus towards all those who dwell upon earth. 3. But I will place a sign in the heavens; and it shall be a faithful witness between me and them for ever, as long as the days of heaven and earth last upon the earth."
"4. Afterwards, according to this my decree, when I shall be disposed to seize them beforehand, by the instrumentality of angels, in the day of affliction and trouble, my wrath and my punishment shall remain upon them, my punishment and my wrath, saith God the Lord of spirits."
Then in Genesis 9:10-17 " And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you; 10 And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth." "11 And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth. 12 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: 13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth."
'14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: 15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh." "16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. 17 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth."
Then in the Sumerian Tablets states this: "Somehow, a mortal known as Ziusudra manages to survive the flood, likely through the help of the god Enki. The tablet begins in the middle of the description of the flood. The flood lasts for seven days and seven nights before it subsides. Then, Utu, the god of the Sun, emerges. Ziusudra opens a window in the side of the boat and falls down prostrate before the god. Next, he sacrifices an ox and a sheep in honor of Utu. At this point, the text breaks off again."
(Now, Utu is known as Shamash who has the sister "Inanna" the considered "Queen of Heaven")
"When it picks back up, Enlil and An are in the midst of declaring Ziusudra immortal as an honor for having managed to survive the flood. The remaining portion of the tablet after this point is destroyed. In the later Akkadian version of the flood story, recorded in the Epic of Gilgamesh, Enlil actually causes the flood, seeking to annihilate every living thing on earth because the humans, who are vastly overpopulated, make too much noise and prevent him from sleeping."
"In this version of the story, the hero is Utnapishtim, who is warned ahead of time by Ea, the Babylonian equivalent of Enki, that the flood is coming. The flood lasts for seven days; when it ends, Ishtar, who had mourned the destruction of humanity, promises Utnapishtim that Enlil will never cause a flood again."
"When Enlil sees that Utnapishtim and his family have survived, he is outraged, but his son Ninurta speaks up in favor of humanity, arguing that, instead of causing floods, Enlil should simply ensure that humans never become overpopulated by reducing their numbers using wild animals and famines. Enlil goes into the boat; Utnapishtim and his wife bow before him. Enlil, now appeased, grants Utnapishtim immortality as a reward for his loyalty to the gods"
Now, in the Hindu Mythos states that it was "Shiva" who had cast a flood onto the world, thus "Vishnu" in his "Matsya" form, goes to gather the Seven Sages. Then in the Greco Roman story states that "Deucalion" and his wife "Pyrrha" are saved by Prometheus, from the flood caused by Zeus.
(Prometheus' son is said to be "Deucalion", like Thoth's descendant is said to be "Noah")
Here is an interesting Excerpt from "The Book of the Secrets of Enoch: "And those men took me and led me up on to the second heaven, and showed me darkness, greater than earthly darkness, and there I saw prisoners hanging, watched, awaiting the great and boundless judgment, and these angels were dark-looking, more than earthly darkness, and incessantly making weeping through all hours"
Another interesting verse in Chapter 17 (Book of Enoch) states this: "They raised me up into a certain place, where there was the appearance of a burning fire; and when they pleased they assumed the likeness of men. 2. They carried me to a lofty spot, to a mountain, the top of which reached to heaven." "3. And I beheld the receptacles of light and of thunder at the extremities of the place, where it was deepest. There was a bow of fire, and arrows in their quiver, a sword of fire, and every species of lightning."
In the Rig Vedas states that these beings are the "Maruts or Rudras", or the "Raijin" of the Japanese (and "Fujin"), who are the beings that control the Thunders and the Lightnings on Earth.
Then there is the case of Thoth being shown the "Primeval Chaos", as stated in Genesis 1:2 on "Chaos and Darkness". Emerald Tablets: "Swiftly I moved through the spaces of Heaven, shown was I the mystery of mysteries, shown the Secret heart of the cosmos. Carried was I to the land of Arulu, stood before the Lords in their Houses. Opened they the Doorway so I might glimpse the primeval chaos. Shuddered my soul to the vision of horror, shrank back my soul from the ocean of darkness. Then saw I the need for the barriers, saw the need for the Lords of Arulu. Only they with their Infinite balance could stand in the way of the inpouring chaos. Only they could guard God's creation."
Enoch is also shown the great "Abyss", that is kept closed by the Angels as well.
The sign of the Cross, the name of the rose, a fire in the sky....is a song by Iron Maiden linking esoterically to the Rosicrucions (Rose and Cross).
Emerald Tablets "Halls of Amenti": "There before them was I led by the Dweller, watched him blend with ONE from above. Then from HE came forth a voice saying: "Great art thou, Thoth, among children of men. Free henceforth of the Halls of Amenti, Master of Life among children of men. Taste not of death except as thou will it, drink thou of Life to Eternity's end, Henceforth forever is Life, thine for the taking."
"Henceforth is Death at the call of thy hand. Dwell here or leave here when thou desireth, free is Amenti to the son of man. Take thou up Life in what form thou desireth, Child of the Light that has grown among men. Choose thou thy work, for all should must labor, never be free from the pathway of Light."
"One step thou has gained on the long pathway upward, infinite now is the mountain of Light. Each step thou taketh but heightens the mountain; all of thy progress but lengthens the goal. Approach ye ever the infinite Wisdom, ever before thee recedes the goal. Free are ye made now of the Halls of Amenti to walk hand in hand with the Lords of the world, one in one purpose, working together, bring of Light to the children of men."
"Then from his throne came one of the Masters, taking my hand and leading me onward, through all the Halls of the deep hidden land. Led he me through the Halls of Amenti, showing the mysteries that are known not to man."
"....Then spoke I: O, great master, let me be a teacher of men, leading then onward and upward until they, too, are lights among men; freed from the veil of the night that surrounds them, flaming with light that shall shine among men. Spoke to me then the voice: Go, as yet will."
"So be it decreed. Master are ye of your destiny, free to take or reject at will. Take ye the power, take ye the wisdom. Shine as a light among the children of men. Upward then, led me the Dweller. Dwelt I again among children of men, teaching and showing some of my wisdom; Sun of the Light, a fire among men. Now again I tread the path downward, seeking the light in the darkness of night. Hold ye and keep ye, preserve my record, guide shall it be to the children of men."
Now, in the "Book of Enoch" part 3. Here details a vision from "Rabbi Ishmael", who was said to have met the angel called "Metatron". Here in this excerpt, reveals the angel "Metatron" who is said to be Enoch. CHAPTER IV : "Metatron is identical with Enoch who was translated to heaven at the time of the Deluge R. Ishmael said : (1) I asked Metatron and said to him: "Why art thou called by the name of thy Creator, by seventy names? Thou art greater than all the princes, higher than all the angels, beloved more than all the servants, honoured above all the mighty ones in kingship, greatness and glory : why do they call thee ' Youth ' in the high heavens ?"
"(2) He answered and said to me: " Because I am Enoch, the son of Jared. (3) For when the generation of the flood sinned and were confounded in their deeds, saying unto God: 'Depart from us, for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways' (Job xxi. 14), then the Holy One, blessed be He, removed me from their midst to be a witness against them in the high heavens to all the inhabitants of the world, that they may not say: 'The Merciful One is cruel".
"(4) What sinned all those multitudes, their wives, their sons and their, daughters, their horses, their mules and their cattle and their property, and all the birds of the world, all of which the Holy One, blessed be He, destroyed from the world together with them in the waters of the flood?" "(5) Hence the Holy One, blessed be He, lifted me up in their lifetime before their eyes to be a witness against them to the future world. And the Holy One, blessed be He, assigned me for a prince and a ruler among the ministering angels. "
"(6) In that hour three of the ministering angels, 'UZZA, 'AZZA and 'AZZAEL came forth and brought charges against me in the high heavens, saying before the Holy One, blessed be He: "Said not the Ancient Ones (First Ones) rightly before Thee: Do not create man!" The Holy One, blessed be He, answered and said unto them: "I have made and I will bear, yea, I will carry and will deliver".
Now, based from this excerpt shows the same account being said by the Angels in the Quran after the destruction of the Jinn race, and how they state to Allah "Will you make a creation that will create chaos?", to which Allah responds "I know what you do not know".
Now, based from the "Book of Enoch" part 3, shows that when Enoch was taken up to God, that he became well favored above all the children of heaven. And with the three Angels, they looked down upon Enoch because he was of mankind, and thus jealousy was aroused among the Angels due to his position.
"In that time the ministering angels brought charges (against them) before the Holy One, blessed be He, saying before him: "Master of the World! What hast thou to do with the children of men? As it is written (Ps. viii. 4) 'What is man (Enosh) that thou art mindful of him?' 'Mah Adam' is not written here, but 'Mah Enosh', for he (Enosh) is the head of the idol worshippers."
"(11) Why hast thou left the highest of the high heavens, the abode of thy glorious Name, and the high and exalted Throne in 'Araboth Raqia' in the highest and art gone and dwellest with the children of men who worship idols and equal thee to the idols. (12) Now thou art on earth and the idols likewise. What hast thou to do with the inhabitants of the earth who worship idols?"
"(13) Forthwith the Holy One, blessed be He, lifted up His Shekina from the earth, from their midst. (14) In that moment came the ministering angels, the troops of hosts and the armies of 'Araboth in thousand camps and ten thousand hosts : they fetched trumpets and took the horns in their hands and surrounded the Shekina with all kinds of songs. And He ascended to the high heavens, as it is written (Ps. xlvii. 5): "God is gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet ".
CHAPTER IX Enoch receives blessings from the Most High, and is adorned to the rank of the Angels, thus having Angelic attributes. Here Rabbi Ishmael states this: "Metatron, the Prince of the Presence, said to me : (1) After all these things the Holy One, blessed be He, put His hand upon me and blessed me with 5360 blessings. (2) And I was raised and enlarged to the size of the length and width of the world."
"(3) And He caused 72 wings to grow on me, 36 on each side. And each wing was as the whole world. (4) And He fixed on me 365 eyes : each eye was as the great luminary. (5) And He left no kind of splendour, brilliance, radiance, beauty in (of) all the lights of the universe that He did not fix on me."
(Remember this connects to Thoth for the "365" and "72" number symbology)
"CHAPTER X God places Metatron on a throne at the door of the seventh Hall and announces through the Herald, that Metatron henceforth is God's representative and ruler over all the princes of kingdoms and all the children of heaven, save the eight high princes called YHWH by the name of their King."
"(1) All these things the Holy One, blessed be He, made for me:He made me a Throne, similar to the Throne of Glory. And He spread over me a curtain of splendour and brilliant appearance, of beauty, grace and mercy, similar to the curtain of the Throne of Glory; and on it were fixed all kinds of lights in the universe." "(2) And He placed it at the door of the Seventh Hall and seated me on it." (3) And the herald went forth into every heaven, saying: This is Metatron, my servant. I have made him into a prince and a ruler over all the princes of my kingdoms and over all the children of heaven, except the eight great princes, the honoured and revered ones who are called YHWH, by the name of their King."
"(4) And every angel and every prince who has a word to speak in my presence (before me) shall go into his presence (before him) and shall speak to him (instead). (5)And every command that he utters to you in my name do ye observe and fulfil. For the Prince of Wisdom and the Prince of Understanding have I committed to him to instruct him in the wisdom of heavenly things and of earthly things, in the wisdom of this world and of the world to come. (6) Moreover, I have set him over all the treasuries of the palapes of Araboih and over all the stores of life that I have in the high heavens."
Now this is what the Yezidis state of the angel "Melek Taus" being the favorite of God, and thus is put into the position as the head of the Seven Angels. Here, you can see that He has the numbers "72" and "365", thus linking Enoch to the one who became immortal in Heaven.
Here in the "Book of Enoch" part 3, CHAPTER XII states this: "God clothes Metatron in a garment of glory, puts a royal crown on his head and calls him "the Lesser YHWH" R. Ishmael said: Metatron, the Prince of the Presence, said to me: (1) By reason of the love with which the Holy One, blessed be He, loved me more than all the children of heaven. He made me a garment of glory on which were fixed all kinds of lights, and He clad me in it."
"(2)And He made me a robe of honour on which were fixed all kinds of beauty, splendour, brilliance and majesty. (3) And he made me a royal crown in which were fixed forty-nine costly stones like unto the light of the globe of the sun." "(4) For its splendour went forth in the four quarters of the Araboth Raqia', and in (through) the seven heavens, and in the four quarters of the world. And he put it on my head. (5) And He called me THE LESSER YHWH in the presence of all His heavenly household; as it is written (Ex. xxiii. 21): "For my name is in him".
This is reprised in Daniel 13,14 as the son of man coming in the clouds of heaven and came forth to the "Ancient of days". Then states that he was given authority and power over the languages, the Kingdoms, and over the whole earth. This very "Son of man" would have to be "Enoch", who is said to be given the authority of the Heaven and the Earth. Now, with these connections relating to Enoch being the "7th" son, and going up to Heaven on the "365th" year, should detail further clues. This details that this being is "Melek Taus", who is the "Peacock Angel".
So, what happened? If the "Book of Enoch" part 3, states of Enoch becoming "Metatron", and is given the authority of Heaven and Earth, and yet it turns out that He is the "Red Dragon" that was defeated by the Archangel Michael. Now, my original thought was that Thoth would be the God of fire, however, it's revealed that this pertains to the Dragon God that came down after the great battle in the skies. Based from information in the "Galactic Warfare" series and "The Black God", details that this apparent being called "Thoth" is the "Red Dragon", as is shown to have red hair and black skin. This story connects to Credo Mutwa's Chitauri and Nommo story.
In the book "The Secret Doctrine" by Madame Blavatsky, she states this segment in the "Origin of the satanic Myths":
"Seth, the reputed forefather of Israel, is only a Jewish travesty of Hermes, the God of Wisdom, called also Thoth, Tat, Seth, Set, and Satan. He is also Typhon -- the same as Apophis, the Dragon slain by Horus; for Typhon was also called Set. He is simply the dark side of Osiris, his brother, as Angra Mainyu is the black shadow of Ahura-mazda."
Based from newer information, I will detail how Osiris is the God that "fell from grace", and how this connects to him being Typhon, Apophis, to the Dragon God who is connected to the Peacock Angel.
Now, we will go to the "Testament of Amram", to where we go to the two watchers and how this is based on the battle between Michael and the Red Dragon. Let's see what it states:
Manuscript B Fragment 1 (9) [... 1 saw Watchers]
(10) in my vision, the dream-vision. Two (men) were fighting over me, saying ...
(11) and holding a great contest over me. I asked them, ‘Who are you, that you are thus empo[wered over me?’ They answered me, ‘We]
(12) [have been em]powered and rule over all mankind.’ They said to me, ‘Which of us do yo[u choose to rule (you)?’ I raised my eyes and looked.]
(13) [One] of them was terr[i]fying in his appearance, [like a serpent, [his] cl[oa]k many-colored yet very dark...
(14) [And I looked again], and ... in his appearance, his visage like a viper, and [wearing ...]
(15) [exceedingly, and all his eyes ...]

(2) [I replied to him,] ‘This [Watcher,] who is he?’ He answered me, ‘This Wa[tcher ...]

(4) [’and his every way is darkened, his every work da[rk]ened. In Darkness he ...
(5) [Yo]u saw, and he is empowered over all Darkness, while I [am empowered over all light.]

(14) and destruction ... Lightness for the people. And I shall reveal [to you ...]
(15) from Darkness, for all ...
(16) the sons of [Darkness ...] and all the sons of Light ..."
The Angel that is shown to look like a dragon, but would have "eyes" on his cloak is none other than Melek taus or the Peacock Angel. Based from the "Galactic Warfare 21&22", I have stated certain accounts that this God wouldn't be human at all, but have a strange connection to the "Sons of God" that are mentioned by Godfrey Higgins to be the Children of the Gods....
Now, the infamous Aleister Crowley had drew of what had contacted him, thus called "Lam". In the website "Boudillion.com/Lam" from Daniel V. Boudillion, does a thorough research on the being called "Lam", in which Crowley had contacted. The Amalantrah Working: "In January through March of 1918 Crowley began a series of magickal workings called the Amalantrah Workings in furnished rooms in Central Park West, New York City. These were a performed via Sexual & Ceremonial Magick (his spelling) with the intent to invoke certain "intelligences" to physical manifestation."
"In actuality, the workings typically manifested as a series of visions and communications received through the mediumship of his partner, Roddie Minor. Be that as it may, at least one such "intelligence" was brought into physical manifestation via the Magickal Portal they created. (A portal in this context is a "magickally" created rent in the fabric of time and space.)"
"The entity that came through is the one pictured above left. Crowley maintained the picture is actually a portrait and drawn from real life. This entity either called itself "Lam," or was named "Lam" by Crowley. Either way, he considered it to be of interdimensional origin, which was the term then for extraterrestrial."
"In communications with Lam, the symbolism of the egg featured prominently."
"Aleister Crowley included the portrait of Lam in his Dead Souls exhibition held in Greenwich Village, New York, in 1919. In that same year it was published as a frontispiece labeled The Way to Crowley's commentary to Blavatsky's The Voice of the Silence. Beneath the picture was the following inscription: "LAM is the Tibetan word for Way or Path, and LAMA is He who Goeth, the specific title of the Gods of Egypt, the Treader of the Path, in Buddhistic phraseology. Its numerical value is 71, the number of this book."
Now, Crowley states the name "Lam", to mean the "way" or "path", but what's more interesting is that fact that an "egg" is used through communication. This is what the movie "Faust" from 1994, as Faust breaks the egg that was in the bread, and the devil appears to him. This is the "Shiva Lingam" is the pillar of Osiris, the "black orifice stone" mentioned by Ignatius Donnelly, Harold Krautz (See "Legends of Atlantis"), connecting to the "Black Stone" Mecca.
This "egg" is shown in many Cultures, pop culture, movies, cartoons etc. In the Chapter "Legends of Atlantis", I will detail further how this connects to Horus, the black god that Aleister Crowley conjured up. In the H.P. Lovecraft Fandom, states "Lam as an alien entity, similar to Grey aliens, dwelling in the dark side of the planet Mars. It is an extraterrestrial intelligence which the occultist Aleister Crowley came into contact with in 1919. He is the Lama of Lêng." This strangely connects to the movies "Hellraiser" with the "Lament Configuration cube", and "The Box" with Cameron Diaz, as one of the characters was struck by lightning during the "Mars expedition".
The Anacalypsis, Page 309: "The MERCURY of Egypt, Teut-tat, is the same as the Gothic Thiod-tat, or query, Thiod-ad ?* Here we come, perhaps, at the origin of Qeoj. Jayadeva describes Buddha as bathing in blood, or sacrificing his life to wash away the offences of mankind, and thereby to make them partakers of the kingdom of heaven. On this the author of the Cambridge Key** says, "Can a Christian doubt that this Buddha was the type of the Saviour of the world ?" This Buddha the Cantab. supposes to have been Enoch...."
This is the very "God" that Jacob saw in his dream, from which he creates the "stone pillar" to honor in Genesis 28, 31 and 35. This is the "Herm stone" that represents Hermes/Thoth, as the God he saw in his dream, and is called "God's house". This is what the Pillar on the grounds of the "Vatican Square" is based on. Then strangely enough, the "Behelit" from the "Berserk" show gives a certain "symbol" to the victims, as a mark of sacrifice for the monsters to feast upon (It looks like the Caduceus). Here are other "egg" symbolism.
This figure is called the Mandorla: "a pointed oval figure used as an architectural feature and as an aureole enclosing figures such as Jesus Christ or the Virgin Mary in medieval art.Also called vesica piscis."
Then the "Vesica Piscis" states this: "a pointed oval figure used as an architectural feature and as an aureole enclosing figures such as Jesus Christ or the Virgin Mary in medieval art. Also called mandorla."
It also pertains to the "Mother Goddess of creation" who is worshiped with a womb. Vesica Piscis is said to mean "Bladder of a fish": "The vesica piscis is a type of lens, a mathematical shape formed by the intersection of two disks with the same radius, intersecting in such a way that the center of each disk lies on the perimeter of the other. In Latin, "vesica piscis" literally means "bladder of a fish", reflecting the shape's resemblance to the conjoined dual air bladders ("swim bladder") found in most fish. In Italian, the shape's name is mandorla ("almond").
The Aureola is this: "An aureola or aureole (diminutive of Latin aurea, "golden") is the radiance of luminous cloud which, in paintings of sacred personages, surrounds the whole figure. In Romance languages, the noun Aureola is usually more related to the disc of light surrounding the head of sacred figures and that in English is called Halo or Nimbus."
"A mandorla is a vesica piscis shaped aureola which surrounds the figures of Christ and the Virgin Mary in traditional Christian art. It is commonly used to frame the figure of Christ in Majesty in early medieval and Romanesque art, as well as Byzantine art of the same periods."
"The term refers to the almond like shape: "mandorla" means almond nut in Italian. In icons of the Eastern Orthodox Church, the mandorla is used to depict sacred moments which transcend time and space, such as the Resurrection, Transfiguration, and the Ascension."
"These mandorla will often be painted in several concentric patterns of color which grow darker as they come close to the center. This is in keeping with the church's use of Apophatic theology, as described by Dionysius the Areopagite and others. As holiness increases, there is no way to depict its brightness, except by darkness."
So, when it's based on the "Almond shaped" figure, this is mentioned in the book "The King of the World" by Rene Guenon in chapter 7 of "Luz or the Abode of the Immortal":
"....many races possess a tradition of an 'underground world'. We do not intend to bring them all together here, as in any case some of them have little direct relevance to our topic. However, generally speaking, the 'cult of the caverns' is more or less conjoined with the idea of an 'interior' or 'central' place, and in any case the symbol of the cave and that of the heart are very close."
"1 On the other hand, there actually exist in Central Asia, America, and possibly elsewhere, caves and underground places where certain initiatory centres have been able to persist for centuries. It is not hard to disentangle one important symbolic fact from these stories, indeed the symbolical associations surrounding these centres indicate that a definite symbolic order, rather than simple prudence, determined the location of the underground centres. Saint- Yves might perhaps have been able to explain this symbolism, but did not, which has given his work some overtones of fantasy."
"2 As for Ossendowski, he was certainly incapable of reading any but the most obvious literal meaning into the symbolism attached to what he was told. Among the traditions referred to just now, there is one particular belonging to Judaism that carries a special signifi- cance. It concerns a mysterious town called 'Luz'."
"3 This name was originally that of the place where Jacob dreamed his dream, and which he subsequently called 'Beith-El' or 'House of God'. 4 It is said that the 'Angel of Death' was unable to-" (1 The cavern or the grotto represents the cavity of the heart, considered as the centre of the being and also the interior of the 'Egg of the World'. 2 For example, the passage concerned with the 'descent to the Hells'; this may be compared with what I have said on the same subject in L'Esoterisme de Dante."
"3 The information given here has been partially drawn from the Jewish Encyclopaedia (viii. 219). 4 Genesis, 28: 19.) "enter this town, and had no power over it. By an odd but significant convergence, some place it near to Alborj, which is equally, for the Persians, the 'abode of immortality'. Near Luz there is purported to be an almond-tree (also luz in Hebrew), at the base of which a hollow leads to an underground passage 5 that gives on to the town, which itself is completely hidden. In its many guises, the word luz appears to be derived from a root form denoting everything that is covered, concealed, enveloped, silent, and secret."
"It is interesting to note that the words describing the Heavens had originally the same meaning. Usually coelum is equated with the Greek koilon or 'hollow' (which Varro indicates with his 'a cavo coelum" to be more closely connected with 'cavern' than is popularly supposed). However, the most ancient, original, and most accurate form is judged to be caelum, a word very near to the verb caelare, 'to hide'."
"In Sanskrit, too, Varuna is born out of var, 'to cover'. This is precisely the meaning of the root kal which is related to the Latin celare, another form of caelare, and to its Greek synonym kaluptein. 6 The Greek Ouranos is nothing but another form of the same word, var changing easily to ur. These words, then, can signify 'that which covers', 7 'that which conceals', 8 and 'that which is hidden'." (5 The traditions of certain peoples of North America also tell of a tree by means of which the men who originally lived in the interior of the earth reached the surface, whereas other men of the same race remained in the underground world."
"It is likely that Bulwer-Lytton was inspired by these traditions in The Coming Race. A newer edition bears the title - The Race which will exterminate us. Other Latin words derive from the same root kal, such as caligo and perhaps the compound occultus. On the other hand, it is possible that the form caelare originated from a different root, caed, with the meaning to 'cut', or 'divide' (from which also cadere), and subsequently 'separate' and 'hide'; but in any case the ideas expressed by these roots are, as can be seen, very close to one another, which could easily have caused the assimilation of caelare and celare, even if these two forms are etymologically independent."
"7 The 'Roof of the World', which can be likened to the 'Celestial World' or 'World of the Living', has, in the traditions of Central Asia, close connections with the 'Western Sky' where reigns Avalokiteshwara. Concerning the sense of 'covering', the masonic expression 'to be covered' must be recalled: the star-covered ceiling of the Lodge represents the vault of heaven."
"8 It is the veil of Ms or of Neith of the Egyptians, the 'blue veil' of the universal Mother in the Far Eastern tradition (Tao-te-King, ch. 6); if one applies this meaning to the visible sky, one can find therein an allusion to the role of astronomical symbolism, hiding or 'revealing' superior truths.)
"....To return to the Hebrew word luz, whose many different meanings merit careful study: in the ordinary sense it means 'almond', by extension 'almond-tree' and also 'kernel'; now, the kernel is the innermost, the most hidden, part and is completely enclosed, so giving rise to the idea of 'inviolability' 14 that is found also in the name Agarttha. But it is also the name given to a specific, indestructible body, symbolically repre- sented by an extremely hard bone, to which the body, after death, remains attached until its resurrection."
"15 As the kernel contains the germ and as the bone contains the marrow, so luz contains those elements necessary for the restoration of an individual being; and this restoration will operate under the influence of a 'celestial dew' to revivify the dry bones."
"Saint Paul describes the process most graphically: 'Sown in cor- ruption he will be resuscitated in glory.' 16 Here, as elsewhere, 'glory' tallies with the Shekinah envisaged in the superior world and with which the 'celestial dew' has a close relationship, as has been brought out in a preceding chapter. The luz, being imperishable, 17 is in the human world the 'kernel of im- mortality', as the place of the same name is the 'abode of immortality'."
"There stops, in both cases, the power of the 'Angel of Death'. It is like a kind of egg or embryo of the Immortal; 18 it can also be compared to the chrysalis from which the butterfly emerges, 19 a parallel that exactly conveys its role in relation to the resurrection."
"14 This is why the almond-tree has been taken as the symbol of the Virgin...."
Let's further investigate the "egg" symbolism towards Hermes. There is a "Orisha" called "Papa Legba". In the Wiki states this:
"Papa Legba is a loa in Haitian Vodou, who serves as the intermediary between the loa and humanity. He stands at a spiritual you crossroads and gives (or denies) permission to speak with the spirits of Guinee, and is believed to speak all human languages. In Haiti, he is the great elocutioner. Legba facilitates communication, speech, and understanding. He is commonly associated with dogs."
"He usually appears as an old man on a crutch or with a cane, wearing a broad-brimmed straw hat and smoking a pipe, or drinking sparkling water. The dog is sacred to him. Legba is syncretized with Saint Peter, Saint Lazarus, and Saint Anthony. In Benin, Nigeria and Togo, Legba is viewed as young and virile trickster deity, often horned and phallic, and his shrine is usually located at the gate of the village in the countryside. Alternatively, he is addressed as Legba Atibon, Atibon Legba, or Ati-Gbon Legba."
Then there is the Orisha called "Elegua". In the Wiki states this: "Elegua (Yoruba: Èṣù-Ẹlẹ́gbára, also spelled Eleggua; known as Eleguá in Latin America and Spanish-speaking Caribbean islands) is an Orisha, a deity of roads in the religions of Santeria (Santería), Umbanda, Quimbanda, Candomblé."
"He is syncretized with either Saint Michael, Saint Anthony of Padua, or the Holy Child of Atocha. Elegua is known as Èṣù-Ẹlẹ́gbára in the Yoruba religion and is closely associated with Eshu. Ẹlẹ́gbára means the "master of force" in the Yoruba language. Eleguá is known in Cuba and Puerto Rico as the orisha and "owner" of caminos, or roads and paths."
"All ceremonies and rituals in Santería must first have the approval of Eleguá before progressing. He is the messenger of Olofi. Within the "Regla de Ocha" [Cuba], he slightly differs from Echu, who in this case is seen as his brother, by having less dangerous and less aggressive characteristics. Eleguá moves silently; in contrast, Echu "breaks through". Manifestations of Eleguá includes Akefun, Aleshujade, Arabobo, Awanjonu, Lalafán, Obasín, Oparicocha, and Osokere."
"There is a patakí (story) in Santería in which Olodumare gives Eleguá the keys to the past, present, and future; for this reason, Eleguá is often depicted holding a set of keys. A figure of Eleguá may be placed in the house behind the entrance door."
Then when you go to the "Holy Infant of Atocha or Santo Niño de Atocha", it states this: "....is a Roman Catholic image of the Christ Child popular among the Hispanic cultures of Spain, Latin America and the southwestern United States. It is distinctly characterized by a basket he carries, along with a staff, drinking gourd, and a cape affixed to which is a scallop shell, symbol of a pilgrimage to Saint James." When you look up the Orisha "Elegua", he is shown carrying, and/or holding an "egg" shaped object (called "Elegua head") with two eyes and a mouth.
I find this to strangely connect to the "Behelit egg" in the show "Berserk", from which shows similar facial features..... "Let him who has eyes to see let him see..." This egg has a considered connection to the "Phallic Black stone", that is worshiped in India towards Shiva, and states how he is associated with the "dog" symbolism. So, of course, "Elegua" connects to Osiris as he is "Dionysus", the God that died and was risen again in the same manner as Tammuz. Here he is represented with the pillar and the "Egg".
Below details the "Gandaberunda", to which is the double headed Peacock form of Vishnu, then later becomes double headed Eagle of Freemasonry. In order to understand the Bible, you will have to understand Hinduism, then from there you will start to see where the symbols are based on, and why the religions of Christianity, Islam, Judaism etc. are really worshiping the Hindu God Vishnu.
The term God relates to Dios, Deus, Dyeus, Devas and Zeus, is based on "God" and also "Dog", thus linking to Sirius. Ever wonder why the popular comedy show "Family Guy" details Vishnu/Indra as the "real" God doing the works instead of the said Christian God and Jesus?
There is also a poltergeist episode detailing Stewie going into the T.V., and coming out stating that Jesus is actually Chinese (See "Jesus is Mohammed"). And behind the background of Indra shows a Moon and Saturn.....
There is the symbolism of the Dog or "God", as shown amongst Ronny James Dio's Album covers. I always wondered about the signicant of the hand insignia and the dog symbology. It's shown that it pertains to "Anubis" the Lord of the Underworld, and is based on "Lord of Sirius". Anubis is the precursor to the God Osiris.
Now on a personal note, I like to study music videos based on understanding the lyrics and symbolism (as these two tends to connect together). Based from the music video from "Alice in Chains", there are two significant videos that I took interest, one is "The Devil put the Dinosaurs here", to which I find is based on Religion and "who" gave these religions and Holidays. It is a rather disturbing video, but after understanding why Jesus had stated the parable of "the enemy sowing tares among the wheat", I start to understand how everyone became influenced by the worship of the Gods.
Matthew 13 states this: "Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 25But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? 28He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn."
This secretly ties in with the "intervention" story. There is another video (when Layne Staley was alive) called "Grind", which is pretty much Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven", connecting to Genesis 28. This is reference as the "step pyramid"....
Then there is the Music video "Square and Hammer" by the band called "Ghost". And of course, you can see the six-pointed star symbolism, the "G" symbolism as it connects to the 7th letter, and the 7th celestial body (from the Sun) of the Solar system is Saturn. Now, I have heard that the term "Square and Hammer" is based on the Freemasonic cudgel that is used in court, but seems to have a connection to the Cube of God as well.
Then as the lead singer carries the "Pope" image, you will see how this connects to the Aztec God of death "Mictlantecuhtli", and the Skull faced "Baron Samedhi". In the music video also details the band holding the "Hand of Sabazios" insignia, to which connects to Bacchus/Dionysus....
Now based on the inverted cross, we get the idea that it's basically a symbol of Satan, thus relating to the Catholic Pope and Satanism etc. Then based on other related info, states that it's based on St. Peter being crucified in this manner, because (as the story states) was unworthy to be crucifed in the upright manner as Jesus. The crucifixion of Odin on the tree of Yggdrasril is based on Odin hanging either upside down, or in the form of the cross (upright) for nine days (with a spear on his side) just to attain the wisdom. Of course, there is the story of how he sacrifices his "eye" as well.
Remember, Odin's day is based on "Wednesday" (Strange connection to "Ash Wednesday"), and is based on "Mercury" and "Hermes" (In Spanish is "Miercoles"). Hermes is shown with the Caduceus to which relates to the Queen of Heaven symbolism (which Iris would be the original wielder), the Tuathedanaan's Sun God Lugh and the God Dionysus.
Now, based on the name "Peter" is really based on "Jupiter", as "Piter" and "Pater" is based on "Father" or Sky Father Jupiter. Just like Zeus is based on Dios, Dyeus to God, it relates to the "Sky Father" or God in Heaven. This is why the name "St. Peter's square" and "St. Peter's basilica" is referenced this way, because it's not a man but a Black God that is adored. The feet of St. Peter sticks out in the same manner as Zeus, along with the worship of the "Queen of Heaven", who is called "Vatika" the Goddess of death to which is named the Vatican. Zeus and Hades are merely one and the same God, and would often be called "Ammon Zeus" which is Amun Ra, Serapis and Anubis, Shiva, Osiris alternatively.
Then there is the band called "Betzefer", and the music video "The Devil went down to the holy Land". If you watch the beginning, you will see the "Beast" (see "Shiva in the Bible") putting a coin in slot machine that has "7 eyes". This is based on Revelation 5:6 “And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.” Also see the movie "Altered States" on the seven eyed lamb and the God on the Cross.
Here is what the Wiki states of "Yaldabaoth": "In the Platonic, Neopythagorean, Middle Platonic, and Neoplatonic schools of philosophy, the demiurge is an artisan-like figure responsible for fashioning and maintaining the physical universe. The Gnostics adopted the term demiurge. Although a fashioner, the demiurge is not necessarily the same as the creator figure in the monotheistic sense, because the demiurge itself and the material from which the demiurge fashions the universe are both considered to be consequences of something else. Depending on the system, they may be considered to be either uncreated and eternal or the product of some other entity."
"The word demiurge is an English word derived from demiurgus, a Latinised form of the Greek δημιουργός or dēmiurgós. It was originally a common noun meaning "craftsman" or "artisan", but gradually came to mean "producer", and eventually "creator". The philosophical usage and the proper noun derive from Plato's Timaeus, written c. 360 BC, where the demiurge is presented as the creator of the universe."
"The demiurge is also described as a creator in the Platonic (c. 310–90 BC) and Middle Platonic (c. 90 BC – AD 300) philosophical traditions. In the various branches of the Neoplatonic school (third century onwards), the demiurge is the fashioner of the real, perceptible world after the model of the Ideas, but (in most Neoplatonic systems) is still not itself "the One". In the arch-dualist ideology of the various Gnostic systems, the material universe is evil, while the non-material world is good. According to some strains of Gnosticism, the demiurge is malevolent, as it is linked to the material world. In others, including the teaching of Valentinus, the demiurge is simply ignorant or misguided...."
Neoplatonism: "Plotinus and the later Platonists worked to clarify the Demiurge. To Plotinus, the second emanation represents an uncreated second cause (see Pythagoras' Dyad). Plotinus sought to reconcile Aristotle's energeia with Plato's Demiurge, which, as Demiurge and mind (nous), is a critical component in the ontological construct of human consciousness used to explain and clarify substance theory within Platonic realism (also called idealism). In order to reconcile Aristotelian with Platonian philosophy, Plotinus metaphorically identified the demiurge (or nous) within the pantheon of the Greek Gods as Zeus...."
(This is where the "Yaldabaoth" connects to Yahweh)
"....One Gnostic mythos describes the declination of aspects of the divine into human form. Sophia (Greek: Σοφία, lit. 'wisdom'), the Demiurge's mother and partial aspect of the divine Pleroma or "Fullness," desired to create something apart from the divine totality, without the receipt of divine assent. In this act of separate creation, she gave birth to the monstrous Demiurge and, being ashamed of her deed, wrapped him in a cloud and created a throne for him within it. The Demiurge, isolated, did not behold his mother, nor anyone else, and concluded that only he existed, ignorant of the superior levels of reality."
"The Demiurge, having received a portion of power from his mother, sets about a work of creation in unconscious imitation of the superior Pleromatic realm: He frames the seven heavens, as well as all material and animal things, according to forms furnished by his mother; working, however, blindly and ignorant even of the existence of the mother who is the source of all his energy. He is blind to all that is spiritual, but he is king over the other two provinces. The word dēmiurgos properly describes his relation to the material; he is the father of that which is animal like himself."
"Thus Sophia's power becomes enclosed within the material forms of humanity, themselves entrapped within the material universe: the goal of Gnostic movements was typically the awakening of this spark, which permitted a return by the subject to the superior, non-material realities which were its primal source...."
Angels: "Psalm 82 begins (verse 1), "God stands in the assembly of El [LXX: assembly of gods], in the midst of the gods he renders judgment", indicating a plurality of gods, although it does not indicate that these gods were co-actors in creation. Philo had inferred from the expression "Let us make man" of the Book of Genesis that God had used other beings as assistants in the creation of man, and he explains in this way why man is capable of vice as well as virtue, ascribing the origin of the latter to God, of the former to his helpers in the work of creation. The earliest Gnostic sects ascribe the work of creation to angels, some of them using the same passage in Genesis. So Irenaeus tells of the system of Simon Magus, of the system of Menander, of the system of Saturninus, in which the number of these angels is reckoned as seven, and of the system of Carpocrates."
"In the report of the system of Basilides, we are told that our world was made by the angels who occupy the lowest heaven; but special mention is made of their chief, who is said to have been the God of the Jews, to have led that people out of the land of Egypt, and to have given them their law. The prophecies are ascribed not to the chief but to the other world-making angels. The Latin translation, confirmed by Hippolytus of Rome, makes Irenaeus state that according to Cerinthus (who shows Ebionite influence), creation was made by a power quite separate from the Supreme God and ignorant of him. Theodoret, who here copies Irenaeus, turns this into the plural number "powers", and so Epiphanius of Salamis represents Cerinthus as agreeing with Carpocrates in the doctrine that the world was made by angels."
The Mandorla symbolism...
Yaldabaoth: "In the Ophite and Sethian systems, which have many affinities with the teachings of Valentinus, the making of the world is ascribed to a company of seven archons, whose names are given, but still more prominent is their chief, "Yaldabaoth" (also known as "Yaltabaoth" or "Ialdabaoth").
In the Apocryphon of John c. AD 120–180, the demiurge arrogantly declares that he has made the world by himself: "Now the archon ["ruler"] who is weak has three names. The first name is Yaltabaoth, the second is Saklas ["fool"], and the third is Samael. And he is impious in his arrogance which is in him. For he said, 'I am God and there is no other God beside me,' for he is ignorant of his strength, the place from which he had come." "He is Demiurge and maker of man, but as a ray of light from above enters the body of man and gives him a soul, Yaldabaoth is filled with envy; he tries to limit man's knowledge by forbidding him the fruit of knowledge in paradise. At the consummation of all things, all light will return to the Pleroma. But Yaldabaoth, the Demiurge, with the material world, will be cast into the lower depths. Yaldabaoth is frequently called "the Lion-faced", leontoeides, and is said to have the body of a serpent. The demiurge is also described as having a fiery nature, applying the words of Moses to him: "the Lord our God is a burning and consuming fire". Hippolytus claims that Simon used a similar description."
"In Pistis Sophia, Yaldabaoth has already sunk from his high estate and resides in Chaos, where, with his forty-nine demons, he tortures wicked souls in boiling rivers of pitch, and with other punishments (pp. 257, 382). He is an archon with the face of a lion, half flame, and half darkness. Under the name of Nebro (rebel), Yaldabaoth is called an angel in the apocryphal Gospel of Judas." "He is first mentioned in "The Cosmos, Chaos, and the Underworld" as one of the twelve angels to come "into being [to] rule over chaos and the [underworld]". He comes from heaven, and it is said his "face flashed with fire and [his] appearance was defiled with blood". Nebro creates six angels in addition to the angel Saklas to be his assistants. These six, in turn, create another twelve angels "with each one receiving a portion in the heavens".
The most probable derivation of the name "Yaldabaoth" was that given by Johann Karl Ludwig Gieseler. Gieseler believed the name was derived from the Aramaic yaldā bahuth, ילדאבהות, meaning "Son of Chaos". However, Gilles Quispel notes: Gershom Scholem, the third genius in this field, more specifically the genius of precision, has taught us that some of us were wrong when they believed that Jaldabaoth means "son of chaos", because the Aramaic word bahutha in the sense of chaos only existed in the imagination of the author of a well-known dictionary."
"This is a pity because this name would suit the demiurge risen from chaos to a nicety. And perhaps the author of the Untitled Document did not know Aramaic and also supposed as we did once, that baoth had something to do with tohuwabohu, one of the few Hebrew words that everybody knows...."
"It would seem then that the Orphic view of the demiurge was integrated into Jewish Gnosticism even before the redaction of the myth contained in the original Apocryphon of John. ... Phanes is represented with the mask of a lion's head on his breast, while from his sides the heads of a ram and a buck are budding forth: his body is encircled by a snake. This type was accepted by the Mithras mysteries, to indicate Aion, the new year, and Mithras, whose numerical value is 365. Sometimes he is also identified with Jao Adonai, the creator of the Hebrews. His hieratic attitude indicates Egyptian origin. The same is true of the monstrous figure with the head of a lion, which symbolises Time, Chronos, in Mithraism; Alexandrian origin of this type is probable."
"Samael" literally means "Blind God" or "God of the Blind" in Hebrew (סמאל). This being is considered not only blind, or ignorant of its own origins but may, in addition, be evil; its name is also found in Judaism as the Angel of Death and in Christian demonology. This link to Judeo-Christian tradition leads to a further comparison with Satan. Another alternative title for the demiurge is "Saklas", Aramaic for "fool". The angelic name "Ariel" (Hebrew: 'the lion of God') has also been used to refer to the Demiurge and is called his "perfect" name; in some Gnostic lore, Ariel has been called an ancient or original name for Ialdabaoth. The name has also been inscribed on amulets as "Ariel Ialdabaoth", and the figure of the archon inscribed with "Aariel".
Now, based on "Phanes" states this: "Phanes /ˈfeɪˌniːz/ (romanized: Phánēs\) or Protogonus (Ancient Greek: romanized: Prōtogónos, lit. 'first-born') was the mystic primeval deity of procreation and the generation of new life, who was introduced into Greek mythology by the Orphic tradition; other names for this Classical Greek Orphic concept included Ericapaeus or Erikepaios (Ancient Greek: romanized: 'power') and Metis ("thought"). "In Orphic cosmogony, Phanes is often equated with Eros and Mithras and has been depicted as a deity emerging from a cosmic egg, entwined with a serpent. He had a helmet and had broad, golden wings. The Orphic cosmogony is bizarre, and quite unlike the creation sagas offered by Homer and Hesiod. Scholars have suggested that Orphism is "un-Greek" even "Asiatic" in conception, because of its inherent dualism."
"Chronos (Time) is said to have created the silver egg of the universe, out of which burst the androgynous first-born deity Phanes, or Phanes-Dionysos. Phanes was a male God, in an Orphic hymn he is named as "Lord Priapos". Phanes was a deity of light and goodness, whose name meant "to bring light" or "to shine"; a first-born god of light who emerged from a void or a watery abyss and gives birth to the universe. Nyx (Night) is variously said to be Phanes' daughter or older wife."
"Many threads of earlier myths are apparent in the new tradition. Phanes was believed to have been hatched from the World-Egg of Chronos (Time) and Ananke (Necessity or Fate) or Nyx in the form of a black bird and wind. His older wife Nyx called him Protogenus. As she created nighttime, Phanes created daytime, and also created the method of creation by mingling. He was made the ruler of the deities and passed the sceptre to Nyx. This new Orphic tradition states that Nyx later gave the sceptre to her son Uranos before it passed to Cronus and then to Zeus, who retained it."
"According to Aristophanes, whence Phanes is called Eros, he was born from an egg created by Nyx and placed in the boundless lap of Erebus, after which he mates with Chaos and creates the flying creatures. This passage seeks to demonstrate that the flying creatures are considered older than all other living creatures, even older than the other gods."
(The "Egg" symbolism is based on Easter, the Pine Cone in the Vatican, and the Mandorla)
The "Protogonos Theogony" is known through the commentary in the Derveni papyrus and references in Empedocles and Pindar. According to Damascius, Phanes was the first god "expressible and acceptable to human ears" . Another Orphic hymn states: "You scattered the dark mist that lay before your eyes and, flapping your wings, you whirled about, and throughout this world you brought pure light." "For this I call you Phanes, I call you Lord Priapos, I call you sparkling with bright eyes." The Derveni Papyrus refers to Phanes: "Of the First-born king, the neverend one; and upon him all the immortals grew, blessed gods and goddesses and rivers and lovely springs and everything else that had then been born; and he himself became the sole one". Dionysus or Zagreus of the Orphic tradition is intimately connected to Protogonos. In Orphic Hymn 30, he is given a list of epithets that also allude to Protogonos: "primeval, two-natured, thrice-born, Bacchic lord, savage, ineffable, secretive, two-horned, two-shaped."
"In the Orphic tradition, Dionysus-Protogonos-Phanes is a dying and rising god. Eusebius tells us the story of his death and recreation. The Titans boil the dismembered limbs of Dionysus in a kettle, they roast him on a spit and eat the roasted "sacrificial meat", then Athena rescues the still-beating heart from which (according to Olympiodorus) Zeus is able to recreate the god and bring him back to life. Kessler has argued that this cult of death and resurrection of Dionysus developed the 4th century CE; and together with Mithraism and other sects this cult formed, were in direct competition with early Christianity during late Antiquity."
Then comes the movie called "The Truman Show", which basically details how the world is not what it seems. The symbols of "Sirius", "666", the Dome, and how the people on the outside is watching people on the inside (Like Television). If this is the case, then perhaps these rumors of the entities or other Parties of beings come to watch what the people on Earth are doing are true. Whatever the case, the story states how Truman Burbank lives his life not realizing that the people around him are actors, and that the Director (who is named "Christof" which is based on Jesus "Christ") watches Truman to make sure he has a "normal life". In one point of the Movie details Truman falling in love with a girl, who in turn tries to tell him what's going on, but gets ousted.
Here is an excerpt from "The Truman Show": "....One evening, the production staff discovers that the sleeping Truman is completely out of their sight. Marlon is sent to check on Truman, finding that he has left an inflatable snowman dummy and a tape recorder playing snoring sounds in his place, and has disappeared through a makeshift tunnel. Marlon breaks character, revealing that Truman is gone, and Christof orders the first transmission cut in the show's history, while a citywide search for Truman is launched."
"Audiences around the world, including the media, are drawn to this sudden change. Truman is found sailing out of Seahaven, having conquered his fear of water. Christof resumes the broadcast and, after an attempt to fetch Truman and return him to Seahaven fails, he sends a man-made lightning storm to try to capsize the boat."
"Both network executives and the show's production crew fear that Truman may die on live television, and Christof's bosses and assistants demand that he end the storm, but Christof ignores them. Despite being thrown overboard, Truman manages to persist; realizing he cannot dissuade Truman any further, Christof finally ends the storm. Truman continues to sail until his boat strikes the wall of the dome. He finds an exit door, but Christof, speaking directly to Truman through a speaker system, tries to convince him to stay, stating there is "no more truth" in the real world and that by staying in his artificial world, he would have nothing to fear."
"Truman considers this, then states: "In case I don't see you... good afternoon, good evening, and good night," (previously his catch-phrase), takes a bow, and exits. The viewers cheer Truman on, while Sylvia races to greet him. Defeated, Christof's supervisors finally end the program on a shot of the open exit door, and the viewers check their television guides to see what else is on television."

Seems like you have misinterpreted the nag hammadi texts although you did your best. Gnosticism is N
