"If one knows beyond any doubt that one is of the Dragon Blood, then the doors to the infinite can be opened wide. The planet needs its Elves and Fairies back, so the saying goes. It needs the people for whom order and empathy come instinctively and whose love of the natural world comes before all else and arises spontaneously from the depths of their eternal souls. Above all the planet needs its Firstborn Dragons to know who they are themselves." -- Nicholas de Vere
There were many things which brought me to discover the final geometric key of Rennes. It was more like being led to a position by a symphony of implications, any one of which could hardly be considered tangible evidence if examined individually. The most persistent factor which made me consider my solution incomplete, was the absence of a geometric equivalent for the male, or his phallus. Admittedly there was the Ass and the fourteen stones of the inverted cross, but this was imagery and not interacting geometry. In my previous studies of occult geometry, I had heard that one of the keys to the mysteries was the secret union of the pentagram and the hexagram. I had seen dozens of attempts to achieve this, but none of them, in my opinion, warranted serious consideration. Supposedly if this were ever successfully achieved, it would be immediately apparent to an adept from the resultant figure. A figure which, in turn, would be a great revelation.
Almost as soon as this crossed my mind, I felt the familiar tingle of the proximity of a truth. All those diagrams had been constructed in circles and squares. All of them used a pentagram which was 'contained'. I wondered how different the geometry would be, using the extended pentagram of Rennes, based on a circle of 15 divisions. The answer was immediately self-evident; the arc carried by the arms is five divisions of the circle. The arms are five miles long and the arc is six. If either the 360,000 inch or the 372,000 inch circle is used, it makes little difference - 6.1483 and 5.9499 respectively.
Then came that flash of inspiration which is always needed at times like these.
The arms of Satan and the Cross of Lorraine . . .
The arms of Jesus and the Cross of Lorraine . . .
Then it struck me that both of the unbelievable lines of features which had led to the secret locations had originated at the Chateau d'Arques. I measured the angle between these two lines. It was 36°! At the new location I checked the angle from the seed to Chateau d'Arques which had passed through the tomb of Poussin, it was 99° and you will recall there were 99 stones in the completion of the temple and that was the distance from the ground to the top of the tomb in inches after we had completed the construction. But the tomb had shown us something else, the speed of light. I measured the distance from Chateau d'Arques to the new location. It was the speed of light in inches!
My mind reeled at what was implied. I had found the seed in the womb of the circle of light and now I had found the centre of light. The seed in the womb of Isis and the means by which to activate it - the harmonic of Set - the Typhon - Satan.
Was this staggering secret of the Astral Light of the alchemists with the serpent (the Ob) lying at nearby Peyrolles, the massive Serpent Rouge? Could now I have the final secret? Could there be an harmonic of light which will unite the super conscious mind to the conscious? A gateway to the infinite wisdom of the gods who created us in their image.
"The Ancients knew that the body of man was similar to the body of the planet and like our bodies, the Earth is very sensitive to human consciousness. In both, there exists an intricate network of invisible ganglia, radiating out like a spider's web. This organic system is completely inter-related and is the vehicle of consciousness. At the bottom of our bodily consciousness lies the repository of material, physical and sexual force and the central nucleus of this vital yet dormant energy has been likened to an etheric serpent that sleeps at the base of our spine. Most are unaware of her existence. When aroused, this Kundalini serpent guarding our inner Tree of Life, has tremendous power and can be very dangerous to the uninitiated.
But if the serpent can be induced to uncoil naturally, this fiery energy will come forth and ascend as a fountain of light, nourishing our chakras, quickening an emerging bliss, unlocking our Christ hood potential and culminating at the crown of the head in a blossom of enlightenment where self and Self merge in union. This appears to be the Divine Plan for us all - not to rule over Nature but to rule over our own nature.
The body of the earth has her own Kundalini serpents and a vibrating interconnecting network or crystalline Grid system across her surface. Sacred sites reside at all major convergences or chakras. As we have forsaken the Feminine and are paying the price for being out of harmony, so the Earth is preparing herself to cleanse and rebalance. Just as all sense impressions of all past lives reside in the central subtle channel of our spines, so too does the Earth contain her own memory in her surface. All these impressions are soon destined to be purified, desensitized, burnt and pierced by the Kundalini dual serpents as they begin to vibrate with greater intensity. Mother Earth is about to have her Period and, like it or not, we are all soon to have our supreme power aroused. Persephone is both Queen of the Underworld and Goddess of the reviving crops, yet in her Plutonian aspect she often eliminates through eruption. When Kundalini raises her head prematurely in our bodies, she rages unrestrained through the lower chakras, causing abnormal excitation of our baser passions. In the Earth, elimination and transformation through cataclysm is one way the Earth can deal with built up damage done to her." -- Rodney Michael Carr-Smith
William Buehler and the "Reshel" Grids
William Buehler is a retired U.S. Naval Commander who has an in-depth spiritual overview and expertise of the "Reshel" grids which contain the ROSELINES or Saint Michael Lines throughout France and Great Britain and elsewhere upon the the planet. He is considered the patriarch of Reshel Grid 'rediscovery', mechanics and function. A man of integrity, humility and vast knowledge, Bill has profound knowledge on the topic of Reshel Grids, their ancient origin, function and role in the upcoming Ascension. The center of this primary Reshel grid (Europe Goddess system) is La Rochelle, Templar sea port... same as Reshel in French and appropriately the female Chief Head Stone.
Scientist, James J. Hurtak. Dr. Hurtak claims to have had a spiritual visitation in 1973. The book tells of a great evolutionary leap for HU-mankind coming for this generation. Our regenisis and it is focused on this particular sacred grid of the Yucatan and is called "The Sacred Grid".
Dr. Hurtak was told by Ascended Master Enoch that this area had triangular grids of crystal and is a communication point with the heavens and the higher exterestial races that oversee our evolution at this time and in the past as well.
The book contains new information about the evolution of our DNA. Some of the concepts could be literal. The message is very important!
All of our great civilizations were born out of the east and spread throughout the world. According to the information Hurtak received from Enoch in this new cycle we are entering America is being prepared to become the new Atlantis or Altea by the Higher Intelligence coming into the ocean in the Bermuda Triangle area. The Higher Intelligence is:
Keys of Enoch definition pg. 566: Altea: (Atlantis Region) Ancient region of programming by the Brotherhood of Light that is to be identified with the Caribbean, Yucatan and SE Mexico area. The major region of administration by the B' nai Or between c. 18,000 - 12,000 B.C.E. The majority of her Altean descendants who survived on the planet (known as Nephites) moved into the regions of Central and North America. Altea-America will be the new ecumenical or spiritual region for the gathering of spiritual mankind, the reprogramming area for "spiritual freedom" on the planet, and the establishment of the Spiritual Administration of the Ancient of Days. (See Daniel, chap. 7)
In it's time the current ancient sacred site we we know as Palanque founded by Pacal; Votan is also referred to has Zarahemla and was the center of the New Jerusalem that was built prior to the current structures. Said to be founded by a race of extraterrials. Here is a practical vision of the re-instated New Jerusalem Unification Center Plan for 2012-13.
The Yucatan State of Southern Mexico is one of the most impressive testimonies to the Mayan-Toltec civilization (10th to 15th centuries). It contains some of the most outstanding examples of Central American architecture, including Mayan construction techniques and Toltec sculpted decoration. Chitzen Itza is a prime example of this style. At the vernal and autumnal equinoxes, the sun gradually illuminates the pyramid stairs and the serpent head at its base, creating the image of a snake slithering down the sacred mountain to earth:
The Mayan town of Uxmal, in the Yucatan, was founded in about 700 and had about 25,000 inhabitants. Its buildings, which date from between 700 and 1000, are arranged according to astronomical knowledge of the period:
In Uxmal, the Pyramid of the Soothsayer, as the Spanish called it, dominates the ceremonial centre which comprises carefully-designed buildings richly decorated with symbols and with sculptures depicting Chaac, the rain god.
The Maya mysteriously appeared out of the mist some 4,000 years ago. To this day, no one knows where those ancient people came from. Nor do we know where they suddenly disappeared to around 800 A.D. Edgar Cayce says they came from the Pleiades. Nevertheless, the Mayan artifacts tell us in no uncertain terms that they were master astronomers with an intimate knowledge of the heavens. And they were obsessed with recording cycles of cosmic time. The Maya described five different ages that existed in the distant past, each lasting some 5,125 years. They have also told us that each of those ages ended in cataclysmic cleansing of the negative karma that was created by mankind. Then, with the start of each new era, the evolution of mankind would begin again from the seeds of the survivors left behind.
According to the Maya, the fifth and final age began approximately 5,125 years ago. One has to wonder why their calendar, constructed more than two thousand years ago, mysteriously ended with the fifth age at "zero point," on the winter solstice of 2012? Is there no next age?
The Mayan calendar ends on December 21, 2012....Mayan pyramids were astronomical observatories and were actually calendars to faithfully record the passage of time. The Mayans were OBSESSED with calendars and chronology, and they kept a careful count of the years from the creation of the world....This sacred calendar was actually handed down to the Maya from a much older and more advanced civilization, known today as the Olmecs.
The Mayan calendar was actually borrowed from an older civilization that proceeded it. That civilization was called the OLMEC.
The name "Olmec" means "rubber people" in Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs, and was the Aztec name for the people who lived in the area of the Olmec heartland in the 15th and 16th centuries.
The Olmecs are credited with founding all the later civilizations that emerged in central America.
The Olmecs are considered the "mother culture" of Mexico. They invented the complex calendar, built the pyramids, and were the originators of the unique hieroglyphic method of writing:
The Olmec culture—totally unlike the later Mayans and Aztecs— were not militaristic societies and did not practice the abomination of human sacrifice. Here is a quote from a French expert on Olmec culture, Jacques Sostelle:
Primordial Olmec Mystery of Origins?
The peoples of the New World went from a higher, more advanced and peaceful civilization, to much more warlike societies involving devil worship and human sacrifice.
As the first people in that area, their lineage goes back to Noah, and the dispersal of the nations at the Tower of Babel. If another people proceeded the Olmecs in the New World we know nothing about them, to we can assume that the people called Olmecs were part of the people dispersed at the Tower of Babel, who crossed the then much smaller Atlantic or Pacific oceans to the New World. Don't believe the lies of EVILution that ancient man was primitive and came to the New World over the Bering Strait.... Any archeologist can attest that the Olmecs arrived suddenly upon the scene with a highly complex calendar and civilization. As attested by the Olmecs and Mayans, ancient man was keenly interested in chronology or the passage of time. The oldest history of the human race is found in the Book of Genesis, and it is full of dates about events in the early history of mankind.
The Mayan civilization flourished from around 1000 B.C. to 300 A.D., and then suddenly disappeared from history....The Mayans succeeded the Olmecs, who disappeared from history sometime before 1000 B.C.
Their calendar—called the LONG COUNT—has the world ending in the year 2012....There is no special astronomical event predicted for the year 2012 so the question is: why did they choose to end their calendar at that particular year?
The only reasonable and chronological answer to that question is the fact that the world will be around 6000 years old in 2012....Bible chronology has the world entering its 6000th year in 1958, and there is a 52 year difference between Bible chronology and Mayan chronology....Considering the vast time involved, this is a very, very small difference.
The books of the Mayans called Chilam Balaam say the first settlers of the Yucatan in Mexico were the Chanes or "People of the Serpent".
They were said to have come across the sea led by a god-figure called Itzamna, a name that apparently comes from the word itzem, which translates as lizard or reptile.25 Itzamna, the sacred city of the god, therefore, means "the place of the lizard" or "Iguana House".26 Itzamna's symbol was the Tau cross also known as the T-square in Freemasonry. Quetzalcoatl, the most famous Central American "serpent" god, also carried a Tau cross.
This cross, like the Christian cross, refers to crossbreeding in Illuminati symbolism and not polarity union as is often claimed. While excavating in Central America near a place called Texcoco, the archaeologist William Niven discovered more than 20,000 tablets that included many symbols identical to those found on the Naacal tablets, which James Churchward had seen in India.
And Churchward's tablets were connected to Lemuria/Mu, which was the origin of both these cultures. Itzamna was the Central American version of the creator god who breathed life into "Man" and yet another who was depicted as half human, half reptile. Quetzalcoatl, the "Feathered Serpent", was the major deity of this culture and he traveled, like all the others, in a "flying boat". It is possible that Quetzalcoatl is another name for the Anunnaki DNA wizard, Enki. Aztec myth says that Quetzalcoatl created humans with help from the Serpent Woman, Cihuacoatl - Ninharsag of the Anunnaki worked with Enki, according to the Sumerian tablets.
There is serpent symbolism all over the ancient Central American sacred sites and these were places of human sacrifice on a scale that beggars belief. Edward Thompson, the American archaeologist, was initiated into the Mayan Brotherhood of Sh'Tol and he was told that the name of the ancient port city of Tamoanchan in Veracruz, Mexico, means:
They came in boats, he was told, which "shone like the scales of serpent skins" and they were "clad in strange garments and wore about their foreheads emblems like entwined serpents".29' Another landing point for the "serpent" Atlanteans was Valum Votan. Here, according to Spanish chroniclers, Pacal Votan and his entourage came ashore. Pacal Votan means "He of the Serpent Lineage".
He established the city of Palenque, the heart of the Mayan culture in the Yucatan. Palenque is the centre of its geographic land mass, as is the Great Pyramid at Giza.31 The temple or pyramid of the Sun at Teotihuacán in Mexico uses the royal cubit as its unit of measurement, the same as the Great Pyramid, and its mathematics conform to those used in ancient structures across the world.
Why? Because they all originate from Lemurian/Atlantean bloodlines and know-how. The Olmec peoples of Central America based their whole culture on worship of the serpent. Excavations have uncovered representations of the Olmecs with serpent features, snake heads, and bodies like dragons.
Quetzalcoatl was known by several names. The Toltecs and Aztecs refer him as Quetzalcoatl. The people of the Incas called him Viracocha. The Mayans called him Kukulcan. The Chibchas called him Bochica. The Aymara from Peru called him Hyustus. It appears that Quetzalcoatl must have had a fast flying vehicle that could take him from Mexico to Central America to South America. What kind of ship could transport a fair skinned god around the country like that?
Palenque, a prime example of a Mayan sanctuary of the classical period, was at its height between 500 and 700 A.D. and had a great influence in the entire basin of the Usumacinta River. At its height, Palenque was one of the largest Mayan cities. Its population probably exceeded 70,000 and its empire extended across much of the Yucatan from the ancient city of Comalcalco to the jungles of the Peten Rainforest in Guatemala. Under Pakal, Palenque was united with the ancient city of Tikal in war against its traditional enemy Calakmul. And under Pakal’s son Palenque went to war against Tonina. The City covers some 6 square miles with thousands of buildings, of which only about 40 have been uncovered or restored.
Palenque is considered to be the most beautiful ancient city in the entire Mayan world. It is nestled in the highland rain forest of Chiapas and looks out over coastal plains running north to the Gulf of Mexico. No one knows the original ancient name for Palenque, but some have speculated that it was Lacamha, meaning “big water”.
The elegance and craftsmanship of the construction, as well as the lightness of the sculpted reliefs illustrating Mayan mythology, attest to the creative genius of this civilization. Recent testing has established that buried beneath the current ruins of Palenque lays a Pre-classic city dating to as early as the 2nd century B.C. Mysteriously this city came to a sudden and abrupt end in the early 1st Century A.D., perhaps as a result of volcanic activity that may have burned the city and left it covered in ash. It was later rebuilt, but again came to a sudden end in 800 A.D., when the city was covered by more than two feet of ash and was subsequently never rebuilt.
Palenque is best known today for its magnificent temple groups, built during the classic Maya era (300-900 AD). It is also one of the best preserved of the Mayan sites with some of the most beautiful calligraphy. In addition, Palenque is world renowned for its royal sepulcher, the tomb of Pakal. Within the tomb, discovered in 1952, were the remains of Pakal surrounded by a rich collection of jewelry and jade, laid inside a sepulcher and covered with a sculptured slab lid, upon which is sculptured the tree of life with the quetzal bird perched on top.
Pakal, who lived to be 80 years old and ruled from 615 to 683 AD recorded in great detail his lineage on the Temple of the Inscriptions. His son Kan–Balam II likewise record his lineage only this time on the Temple of the Foliated Cross which is one of three temples which make up the cross group built by Kan-Balam II. Pakal in his lineage tells about an early ruler of ancient Palenque named Kuk-Balam or Quetzal Jaguar. He ascended to the throne in March of 431 AD at the age of 34. Pakal’s son however, traces in the Cross group temples, his ancestry back to a supposed first king of Palenque, named Kish, who ruled from 967 BC. Kish descended from three gods known as the Palenque Triad, all born BC to the First Mother (Anunnaki) herself in the region of the Sumerian Culture.
Votan was the archetypal bringer of civilization, bequeathing hieroglyphic writing, the codification of laws, the use of a complex Mesoamerican calendar, the cultivation of maize and cotton, sacrificial offerings of flowers and fruits rather than humans, and such diverse sciences as astronomy, metallurgy, ceramics, and medicine. It appears that he was, so to speak, a quintessential Renaissance man.
For that time period, the cosmopolitan Votan clearly got around. But where did he come from? According to some authorities, he may have been a Phoenician from Carthage (modern-day Tunis). Author Adrian Gilbert, for instance, believes that the evidence for this rests in the friezes at Palenque. He says that the figures depicted there have large noses and their facial features generally look Semitic.
Researcher Andrew Collins, on the other hand, thinks that Votan was probably a Hebrew, citing the Phoenicians' lack of serpent worship as well as their mercantile motives for navigation that superseded any interest in empire building.
This theory is contradicted, however, by the fact that a
This Phoencian version of the uroboros, or a snake swallowing its tail, is a symbol of eternity.
Another name for the port city of Tyre is Tsur, which in Hebrew means 'rock'. The Hopi word Tsur means 'wedged in a crack', and tsu means 'rattlesnake', which is also associated with rain. In addition, the Hopi tsu'ki refers to 'a hole inhabited by snakes'. The Hopi term tusyap, incidentally, denotes a 'flat rock'.
A winter solstice ceremony for the resurrection of the sun was held in the same Tyrian temple. This impressed the infamous Freemason Albert Pike:
In Greek mythology Hyperion was the Titan (a giant) who fathered Helios (the sun), Selene (the moon) and Eos (the dawn). His name literally means 'above' (hyper-) + 'going' (ion). It is possible that Heracles (Hercules), whose altars most likely reached west to the New World, was a variation on the theme of Votan.
On one of four journeys back to his homeland named Valum-Chivim, the demigod Votan witnessed the construction of both the "house of God" (that is, King Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem, about 970 BC) and the Tower of Babel in Mesopotamia. Some authorities state that the latter was built about 1000 BC.
Pioneering diffusionist researcher Constance Irwin conversely provides a slightly later date:
Citing a history of Palenque written by an 18th century friar named Ramon de Ordoñez y Aguilar, Collins further remarks on one of these voyages made by Votan:
In his subsequent book Bailey takes this even further:
The renowned Atlantean scholar Ignatius Donnelly adds:
Hence, we now have another culture from which Votan may have originated.
It sounds like paradise. But, as the cliché goes, all good things must come to an end, including the sovereignty of Votan (or, in his Aztec incarnation, Quetzalcoatl). Some believe that necromancers or evil priests overturned his original precepts of enlightened non-violence and instituted human sacrifice. One myth describes the god Tezcatlipoca ('Fiery Mirror') plying Quetzalcoatl with the intoxicating drink pulque, thereby causing the latter to fall into dissolution and moral decay.
The feathered serpent finally abdicated his authority in Mexico and sailed toward the rising sun on a raft of snakes. In another version he cast himself upon a funeral pyre, after which the eponymous quetzal bird with its brilliant plumage rose phoenix-like from the ashes. Quetzalcoatl's heart then ascended into the sky to become the Morning Star (Venus).
Before departing toward the east, however, he had promised to return one day for the purpose of redeeming the land and its people from the trials and suffering they were destined to endure.
In the early 16th century Hernando Cortés conquered -- almost too easily -- Moctezuma and his Aztec subjects at Tenochtitlán (now Mexico City). This rapid capitulation was due in part to the native leader's belief that the Spaniard was fulfilling the prophecy of the ancient god's return.
Whether we are talking about the Aztecan Quetzalcoatl or the Mayan Votan, the disastrous result was the same: magnificent cities with their soaring temples and pyramids were left in smoking ruins, while sacred codices with their accumulated knowledge were callously consigned to the flames or lost in the jungles.
It is interesting to note that one of the meanings of the Spanish word votan is 'a religious vow'. In this case the vow to convert all inhabitants of the New World to the Catholic faith resulted in the almost complete destruction of a fiercely brilliant aboriginal culture that had flowered for millennia.
It has been recently discovered and revealed through the family line of Founding Knights Templar Huges De Payen's family heir that his Dragon Bloodline which is descending from the House of David and further back to the Anunnaki comes forth to a descendent in this line that we identify as Pacal Votan of Palanque, Yucatan. The modern day heir that revealed this information is a Payne direct descendent of Huge De Paynes the leader of the 1st Crusade to Jerusalem to unearth the sacred treasures of King Solomon and bring them to the west.
The mystery of this royal Mayan Lordess haunts my memories of Palenque. In 1994, a temple and burial chamber dedicated to a royal WOMAN was excavated - something never before seen in the Mayan world. There were no identifying name glyphs, so she was named La Reyna Roja, the Red Queen, because of large deposits of red dust that they found covering the walls of her sarcophagus and body. The red dust was cinnabar, a red mineral ritualistically used in burials. Her body was wrapped in a shroud and she was "unusually" tall for the population – approximately 5'4 inches. Her cranium was elongated, as were the other Palencanos found buried in the center of the ancient city of Nah Chan Kaan. (Researches call this a 'deformity' that was created by sandwiching the cranium between two boards. Or in other cultures, by tightly wound bandages.) Ouch! It is interesting that this "cranial deformity" has been found common to many very ancient races – the Egyptians, the Olmecas, the Pre- Inca, etc. According to some of the esoteric doctrines and teachings, a divine root-race through whom all great civilizations developed, HAD elongated craniums with full-functioning brain centers. Later, as fewer of the divine race remained, the practice of "cranial deformation" was practiced by those who came after, in order to emulate the wisdom and knowledge of these ancient ones, whom they revered.
Both Pacal Votan and the "Red Queen" were found buried in a lidded sarcophagus inside a crypt, on top of which temples were built. Both temples have inner stairways leading to the burial chamber, and both personages were buried with sacrificed attendants to accompany them into the underworld. This is not customary in the funerary practices of the Maya, and is more reflective of ancient Egyptian burial practices. Both of their temples were built side-by- side within the ancient city's Great Plaza. Both Pacal Votan and the 'Red Queen' wore mortuary masks; and each was found with (what had been) a ceremonial belt of jade beads, pearls and three small axes. Both of their sarcophagi were painted red with cinnabar.
During our journey to Palenque in September, Master Mayan Teacher Miguel Angel Vergara will reveal the name of La Reyna Roja, and more on who she really was. As in ancient times, Pacal Votan and La Reyna Roja remain side by side in their royal temples guarding over the ancient city of Palenque.
Temple of the Red Queen. It is believed by some that the remains of the woman found in this tomb belong to Sak K'uk, mother of Pakal. Under Palenque dynastic custom, women could only rule when there was no male heir. Sak K'uk's husband, Muwaan Mat, died before his young son was old enough to rule, and so Sak K'uk ruled for 3 years until K'inich Janab, known as Pakal or Sun Shield, became 12 years old. In the administrative and ceremonial center called the Palace,, a basE relief wall carving shows Sak K'uk presenting Pakal with an elaborate head dress, apparently at his coronation. He seems to have revered his mother, and may have built this tomb for her next to his own. Whatever the real identity of the tomb's occupant, she was an extremely important person to have such a monument. She was found covered by red cinnabar (hence the name), and dressed in fine jade jewelry. The bodies of a young woman and a child lay next to her crypt, apparently ritually killed so they could assist her in the afterlife. The tomb wasn't discovered until 1994, a demonstration that Palenque, of which only 10% has been fully excavated, has many more surprises in store.
The kings of the succession in the reptilian bloodlines were known as "Dragons". When many kingdoms joined together in battle, or as a group of kingdoms, they appointed a king of kings. These were known as the Great Dragon or... Draco. The Celtic title of Pendragon, as in Uther Pendragon, the father of "King Arthur" in the Grail stories, was a version of this. In the legends, the symbolic Arthur was a descendant of the dragons and his helmet (or El-met, named after a reptilian goddess called El) carried a dragon motif.
Like the Celtic myth and folklore, the ancient Greek culture was inspired by the Sumerians and the earlier Atlanteans and Lemurians and was based almost entirely on their stories and myths under different names. All over the ancient world you find the same recurring stories of the serpent gods.
Throughout the Sumer Empire the people worshipped serpent gods andquoted in the book, The Worship Of The Serpent:
"...One of [the] five builders of Thebes [in Egypt] was named after the serpent-god of the Phoenicians, Ofhion ...The first altar erected to Cyclops at Athens was to 'Ops', the serpent deity... The symbolic worship of the serpent was so common in Greece that Justin Martyr accuses the Greeks of introducing it into the mysteries of all their gods." -- Reverend John Bathhurst Deane
In Uxmal, the Pyramid of the Soothsayer, as the Spanish called it, dominates the ceremonial centre which comprises carefully-designed buildings richly decorated with symbols and with sculptures depicting Chaac, the rain god.
Monte Alban was inhabited over a period of 1500 years by a succession of peoples - Olmecs, Zapotecs and Mixtecs. The terraces, dams, canals, pyramids and artificial mounds of Monte Alban were literally carved out of the mountain and are the symbols of a sacred topography. Nearby, the checkerboard design of Oaxaca is a good example of the Spanish colonial architecture:
The Rose Dragon Line continues on South to Peru, down past Lake Titicaca. The Lake is known to the Amara and some Quechua Indians as their emergence point and source for their ancient Dragon King Sun Culture. With the Islands of the SUN and Moon and the snow capped mountains of the Andes in the background, Lake Titicaca contains a number of ancient markers for astronomical worship and spiritual development:
Machu Pichu is a majestic hilltop temple settlement soaring some 7,000 feet above sea level within the Andean Mountain Range. The Incan-built structure has been deemed a “Lost City”, unknown until its relatively recent discovery in 1911. Archaeologists estimate that approximately 1200 people could have lived in the area, though many theorize it was most likely a retreat for Incan rulers. Due to its isolation from the rest of Peru, living in the area full time would require traveling great distances just to reach the nearest village:
Separated into three areas - agricultural, urban, and religious - the structures are arranged so that the function of the buildings matches the form of their surroundings. The agricultural terracing and aqueducts take advantage of the natural slopes; the lower areas contain buildings occupied by farmers and teachers, and the most important religious areas are located at the crest of the hill, overlooking the lush Urubamba Valley thousands of feet below.
Hikers, tourists, and the early explorers describe similar emotions as they climb their way through the Inca Trail. Many call the experience magical. Glancing out from the Funerary Rock Hut on all the temples, fields, terraces, and baths seems to take you to another time. Blending in with the hillside itself, many say the area creates a seamless and elegant green paradise, making it a must for anyone who travels to Peru.
A huge mysterious door-like structure has recently been discovered (September, 1996) in the Hayu Marca mountain region of Southern Peru. Hayu Marca, 35 kilometers from the city of Puno has long been revered by local Indians as the "City of the Gods", and has never been fully explored because of the rugged mountain terrain. Although no actual city has ever been discovered, many of the rock formations of the region resemble buildings and artificial structures. The door, or the "Puerta de Hayu Marca" (Gate of the gods/spirits) has been at some time in the distant past carved out of a natural rock face and in all measures exactly seven meters in height by seven meters in width with a smaller alcove in the center at the base, which measures in at just under two meters in height. Jose Luis Delgado Mamani stumbled across the structure while trekking through the surrounding foothills trying to familiarize himself with the area as his job is as a guide for mountaineering tourists.
In 1925 Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett, his son Jack Fawcett and Raleigh Rimmell entered the Amazon jungle to search for a Lost City, they were never seen or heard of again. But what made Fawcett believe there was a lost city to be found? Is it possible that one of the seven famed Cities of Cibola exists in the Amazon and possibly another several in the Four Corners of the American Southwest?
A summary of manuscript 512, tells that in in 1743 a group of Portuguese, along with slaves and a number of Indians, set out in quest of these fabulous mines. Eleven years later the survivors were heard of in the coastal regions of West Central Brazil, but they never reappeared again in the civilized world. Their report, which was found in the middle of the 19th century, tells of finding a city built of huge blocks of stone, deserted and apparently destroyed ages ago by an earthquake. The expedition found a few gold coins and a number of mine shafts. The nearby river could also be easily panned for large quantities of gold. A statue and some inscriptions in stone appeared to these men as being very Grecian in nature. The expedition made haste to get back to civilization, planning to return with a larger, better-equipped force. Unfortunately, they never made it. They did mention one more strange incident in their report; On the return trip they said they saw two members of the much-rumored “white Indians”. They had white skin and long, black hair. Colonel Fawcett, it seems, put much faith in the account.
And perhaps there is some truth in what Fawcett said. The details, including the hieroglyphic inscriptions, are very explicit. Although more has been explored now, many parts of the Brazilian jungle are still almost inaccessible. But much of that mysterious wilderness is being rapidly pushed back by deforesting and settlements.
