For sometime we have been looking at riddles hidden in ancient art. Continuing along that line we look at the Mayan Calendar and upend it to see what it might be hiding.

Upend it and find the following….

Not in the East, nor in the West, nor in the South but …
To the North came the two beaked birds
like flying snakes, Quetzalcoatl they may be…
They came like lovers ready to kiss…
The two comets went into their craters with their tails …
They put out the eye of Earth…
They made the high brows…
They flattened the nose at the center of the world…
And it went in at this angle…
The icebergs flew into the waters at the mouth of the world….
There were two huge craters…
It was surrounded by mighty planks,
remnants of what the icy headlands had been…
All around was dabbled with craters…..
It was surrounded by waves and flames….
The cities and temples were overcome by waves like claws…
It carved a new world order into stone as it pushed north south…
It turned it all over…
So began the world.

Recall that some time ago the paper “A Planet Most Miraculous: The Mechanics of Earth’s Rotating Crust” was published here. In this post we saw what the Mayan Calendar might be trying to show us by turning it over. In the same way we will overturn the world view of magnetism and learn how it played a role in saving the Earth.

Ancient Riddles to Test Our Wits: Indus Script

© 2017 B. L. Freeborn

Indus Valley Seal A.

Another ancient riddle presents itself in the Indus Valley seals written in a script which has defied translation. We are in a unique position to make a few inroads into this mystery. A search of Indus Valley Seals shows that the bull at the manger was a common motif so it is worthy of analysis. The message on each of these three seals is obviously different yet the symbolism is remarkably familiar.

Find in the image ….

Indus Valley Seal B.

Ba’al is like a bull.

The serpent like comets were like horns upon a bull.

Upon the covering of the mighty one they left marks like eyebrows.

The pole moved lower.

Indus Valley Seal C.

Now there is a cup on it.

Around it and in it are many cup marks.

The pole of measures now lies above it.

It came to the pole to eat.

——————————-

The familiar symbolism assures us that these images refer to the double comet impact which formed the Nastapoka Arc and Hudson Bay amidst the mighty two mile thick ice sheet some 10 to 12,000 years ago.

Observe the first two glyphs on Seal A are very nearly Hebrew  . (M) and  (I). The double square is also reminiscent of the Metcalf Stone’s first symbol or a dagger.

The third symbol suggests the up/down triangles noted in the previous post and seen in Da Vinci’s art, the Grave Creek Stone and other places. By connecting them to the oblong circle it further suggests the idea of the mountain that became a deep round abyss.

Like in the Grave Creek Stone some of the glyphs are elevated on a peak or delta which make the two glyphs in the center of Seal B appear to be fish but they probably suggest the ‘crater above’ or the ‘crater that delineates.’

Note the symbol immediately to the right of these looks like a comet entering a crater suggesting the idea of an impact.

The two parallel lines are seen on the Newberry Tablet and suggest longitude lines.

On Seal C the Hebrew letter : (Sh) is also elevated and the glyph is reminiscent of the menorah. The symbol third from the right, also elevated, appears to be a mountain that has been shot. Immediately to the right is a glyph like dual flames reminding one of Ba’al which literally means both fires.

Further still, many of the symbols are nearly identical to Luwian Hieroglyphs.

Perhaps with these few clues someone will be able to translate the script…..!!!

Ancient Riddles to Test Our Wits: The Great Pyramids

© 2017 B. L. Freeborn

Aerial view of Giza Pyramids and Sphinx complex.

Why were the Great Pyramids built? Egyptologists will probably tell you they were built as tombs despite all indications to the contrary. Another lot will tell you they were built to re-enact the Pharaoh’s symbolic death and resurrection. And yet another lot will tell you that the ground plan was to remind us of the Orion constellation. There are other diverse theories.

The ground plan does resemble the three stars of Orion’s Belt as proposed by Robert Bauval in 1984. But was it necessary to build such massive structures to depict them? And why do so?

Then again the resurrection connection has strong merit. Resurrection of god is an enduring myth found in many cultures with various gods playing the role. So, perhaps there is some truth to this as well.

Use diagonal of pyramids to size and place circles. Mark Sphinx location.

What if there is another reason that ties all three of these together? What if it requires a broader knowledge of the world to understand it which has only recently become available to the masses?

Let’s pause for a moment to consider some unrelated ideas:

  • Recall the phrase… ‘As above so below.’  The resemblance to Orion’s belt brings the heavens to mind and what lies in them besides just planets and stars.
  • The ancients loved the ‘squaring of a circle.’
  • The western and eastern cemeteries at the site appear as small rectangles next to the massive structures. They are clearly visible in satellite images as if they are grids and intentionally put there to give the whole complex true scale.
  • Many of the ancient works of art studied in prior posts suggested turning.
  • Many of the ancient works of art depicted a point up triangle in association with a point down triangle. This is evident in more recent works such as Da Vinci’s Last Supper.
  • The letter N in the Latin alphabet is nearly identical to the aleph of the Hebrew alphabet and this similarity was used in the Sator Rotas Square. The ‘N’ is actually a combination of both point up and point down triangles.

Flip the pyramids over and rotate 45 degrees clockwise.

Any ideas come to mind?

Let’s add another clue. The name which most of the world uses to identify this nation is Egypt. Stephen Mehler tells us at his website that the name is derived from the Greek: Hi-Gi-Ptos and pronounced Aegyptos. It was derived from the ancient term Het-Ka-Ptah. The repetition of the ptos and ptah is obvious. The first two syllables are not so apparent. Let us assume that the Greeks were close enough in time to have a true inkling of what the pyramids were all about. Aegyp is easily and oddly enough translated into both Old and Modern English. ‘Aegype’ means without skill. The ‘aeg’ means awe or terror. The ‘gype’ means gap or gaping. The ‘pt’ of ptos and ptah can also be translated into both Old and Modern English. We spell it as ‘pit’ today. Mehler tells us the phrase means “the physical projection of the soul” which is much more glamorous and mysterious then my dismal translation: awesome gaping pit.

Complete the circles.

How about one more clue…..

If you were to fly from the Giza Pyramids in a direction of 32.11 degrees west of north for 2466 miles where would you end up? (Towards the former magnetic north.)

(Another way to think of that 32.11 is 5.66 squared. And by golly!, 32.11 is almost the coefficient of gravity which is 32.17 ft/sec/sec.)

Your final bearing upon arriving will be 56.55 degrees west of North!!  And your latitude will be 56.5 degrees North!!! which is where magnetic north used to be. (Gravity is just another form of magnetism.)

Need yet another clue?

Perhaps the similarity to Orion’s belt is meant to remind us that at one point in time three objects came from the heavens and left their mark on the planet. The scale of these ‘marks’ is as great as the pyramids are to the grids of graves in the cemeteries.

  • Now let us ‘square the circle’ in reverse. Recreate each square pyramid as a circle. Take the diagonal of each and use it to swing an arc from the center of each pyramid. Do not forget the Sphinx! In the images the Sphinx’s body is a small line and the two dots are the paws.  (See images.)
  • Flip the pyramids. Instead of seeing them as up pyramids … see them as  down pyramids.
  • The shape of the pyramids suggest a 45 degree angle. Now rotate the image 45 degrees clockwise. And you then have…..?

The pyramids as circles, flipped and rotated 45 degrees overlaid on Hudson Bay,

Is this not the layout for Hudson Bay? Are these not awesome gaping pits which were once in a two mile deep ice blanket? Does this not explain the sheer massiveness of the pyramids?

And the position of the Sphinx quite nicely suggests the location of the double comet craters at Clearwater Lakes, Quebec, Canada which are 20 and 14 miles in diameter.

Now we might be able to deduce exactly what was resurrected after a miserable death and why its symbolic tombs are so large and empty!

Ifa divination bowl of the Yoruba people.

West African Ifa Divination bowl of the Yoruba people formerly of the Friede Collection. Photo credit below.

This figure is from the Friede collection formerly of New York. It is a vessel used for Ifa divination amongst the Yoruba people of West Africa. The bowl holds palm nuts used by the diviner.

Now let us look closer at this very unique piece of art and we will recognize some very familiar symbols.

Recall the symbols in the Da Vinci Last Supper seen in the previous post.

Find the symbols suggested by the italic phrases below in the image.

A double comet came as two balls.

It put a large crater upon the world’s back

when it brought the world to its knees.

It bent the mountains down that covered the head of the world.

It split the world asunder creating a two footed foundation

for the world: the north pole and the magnetic pole.

Ancient Riddles to Test Our Wits: The Secret Chamber

© 2016 B. L. Freeborn

This stone with a Latin inscription was found in rural New York.

This stone with a Latin inscription was found in rural New York.

Another ancient riddle presents itself in stone. This one is also from rural New York. The very readable words ‘In camera’  are still used today. It is a legal term in Latin for behind closed doors or in secret. What secret does this stone hold?

Roman numerals were in common use until the 11th century when they began to be replaced by Arabic style. They persisted into the 15th century and in some instances are still used today. The numbers read:  XLV = 45, XXX = 30, LXXV = 75, and LIII = 53.

Obverse side of stone with a Latin inscription found in rural New York.

Obverse side of stone with a Latin inscription found in rural New York. Numbers read 45 30 and 75 53.

What then do the numbers mean? Hint. Notice 30 + 45 = 75. When does 45 equal 75?

Perhaps in true ‘Da Vinci Code’ style the words In Camera are an anagram or in an entirely different language?

Find the words in italics on the front face:

Baal is the center of the rule that governs the world.

The eye marks the angle that divides.

The smoking rock struck deep into the mountain of ice

and the water flowed.

The answer to the number riddle is at this link.

Ancient Riddles to Test Our Wits: Ancient or Modern Copies?

Elephant Tablet found during construction of Cuenca Airport, Ecuador

Elephant Tablet found during construction of Cuenca Airport, Ecuador

This piece from the Crespi Collection found during construction of the Airport in Cuenca, Ecuador is obviously related to the three stones shown below. In a previous post this stone was translated. Can it be determined if the other three are copies of this stone and if the copies were made relatively recently?

Using transliteration into Paleo-Hebrew circa 200 to 100 BC and Hebrew Letters as derived by J. Huston McCulloch in his study of the Newark Decalogue Stone from Ohio, the Elephant Tablets are translated with the aid of the Anglo-Saxon Language.

 

These copies of the elephant stone are believed to be from Burrows Cave which means their authenticity is in question.

These copies of the elephant stone are believed to be from Burrows Cave which means their authenticity is in question. Read translation and comparison below.

These copies of the elephant stone are believed to be from Burrows Cave which means their authenticity is in question.

Compare the detail in the elephant and Sun. The Sun should appear as a dual reference to Baal’s crater as an origin. The Cuenca shows two eyes and lines radiating from a central O. The trunk of the elephant does not show the all important crater shape in any of the other copies. The back of the mammoth does not appear broken and in the eyebrow shape of Hudson Bay. This means the ‘copier’ was far removed from the significance of the detail, however, it does not mean they are forged.

The overall presentation on circular and chipped tile shapes is consistent with the story of Baal. The stones on the left and right appear freshly machined. And finally, the inscriptions in line 1 and 2 are different than the Cuenca but plausible. They read b-n-th and th-k, k-b, b-l or ‘beneath thatch cave Baal.’ The k-b can also be read as cab which means pole.

The letter ‘th’ in the first line is not reversed as in the Cuenca example which suggests two possibilities. The first is both lines are to be read left to right so the top would read th-n, n-b or ‘thin nib’ … ‘thatch cave Baal.’ The second possibility is the copier was unaware of why the ‘th’ was reversed in the first line and corrected it. The lifespan of the copier cannot be determined by this difference just that he might have thought it was an error in the original. The middle stone’s N (center of first line) is truer to the Paleo-Hebrew style then the other two suggesting it is an original or a more exact copy of another original with evidently valid lettering.

Lastly, note the facing C’s in the middle line of all four copies. These were seen in other tablets from Ohio and in art from Knowth, Ireland. Previously, using Luwian glyphs the meaning Great Origin or Mighty Crater was derived from this pattern. It also leads one to another translation of the middle line. If the ‘Th’ stands alone to represent ‘the’ and the C is the Luwian symbol for ‘great’ then the last two letters spell b-l. This then reads ‘The Great Baal’ which is totally plausible and in line with ancient wit to use two languages/alphabets within a text (as academics still do today) and two meanings within the same line.

Old and real? New and fake?

Or is it more likely… these are copies of secreted away originals?

Ancient Riddles to Test Our Wits: The Mammoth at the Top of the World

Elephant Tablet found during construction of Cuenca Airport, Ecuador

Elephant Tablet found during construction of Cuenca Airport, Ecuador

© 2016 B. L. Freeborn

In this piece from the Crespi Collection found during construction of the Airport in Cuenca, Ecuador….find the words in italic:

 

 

 

 

 

The angle to the Sun is measured in the land of Mammoth’s.

They thundered and lived at the top of the world.

Remember the Mammoths of old.

It reminds us by its nose of the snake which came to the two eyedradiating center,

by its curl of the cup which is now there,

by its pounding walk of the beating Earth took,

by its tusks of the stabbing Earth endured.

Earth’s back was broken and bears the two bows of Baal.

The cup is now mouth to the world

which helps divide it in an orderly fashion to the peak.

Count it 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

By identifying the letters as Paleo-Hebrew (Phoenician) circa 200 to 100 BC and Hebrew Letters as derived by J. Huston McCulloch in his study of the Newark Decalogue Stone from Ohio, the Elephant Tablet is translated. The language used to aid with the translation is Anglo-Saxon. The stone reads in Boustrophedon style:

Where the Mammoth’s lived….

The bed of death is where the beating made a cave. There dwells the lamed mechanism.

There lies the dish that tipped the top and shagged all.

Translation of the Cuenca Elephant Tablet using Ohio Decalogue Stone Style - Hebrew. The bottom line is read then rotated and read again.
