INTRODUCTION

Many scientists believe that the age of the dinosaurs ended when the Earth was hit by a meteorite, but
there is now evidence suggesting that not only did it happen during those ancient times, but similar global
catastrophes have occurred during recent history, caused by meteorites and even larger cosmic bodies. The
Earth is littered with the evidence of past devastations.

Immanuel Velikovsky, ˜Worlds in Collision", proposes that , in the distant past, but still within man's
memory, the planet Jupiter ejected from itself a smaller but sizeable body that careened across the solar
system in the form of a giant comet. Coming into close contact with Earth, but avoiding an actual collision,
this cometary body caused a series of catastrophic events which mankind remembered and passed on to his
descendants in an oral and written tradition that eventually evolved into the well-known mythologies of the
various nations. Thus the gods and goddesses of antiquity seem to have really been the deified planets of
the solar system. Their divine actions were merely reflections of errant orbits in a cosmic drama which man
witnessed and immortalized in his religious rites, his liturgies and, finally, his sacred texts.

Not only did Earth experience such catastrophes, we now know that the planets and their moons also show
signs of upheaval. Uranus is tilted at 98-degrees, Venus rotates "backwards", Saturn's moon Mimas shows
a crater so large that it was almost destroyed, and the asteroid belt is remnant of a planet that was
destroyed due to a collision of another cosmic body.

Despite the old claims that Earth and its people are the result of a slow evolutionary process , it now seems
these catastrophic events , known as Event Horizons,  may have accelerated the evolutionary process. And
if mankind had indeed been here to witness such catastrophic devastation, it would surely have not only
affected him but these events and terrors would have become ingrained in his very psych.

According to Velikovsky,  Saturn and Jupiter had once been much closer to Earth. Saturn was a water planet.
More than that, like Jupiter, it had once been a "dark" star. Through a near collision of the two, which took
place somewhere between five and ten thousand years ago, Saturn erupted in nova-like brilliance. The
water it ejected from its body took the form of two watery filaments which, seven days after the flare-up, hit
the Earth and caused the deluge. The water, which fell on Earth in torrential rains, was warm and salty and
resulted in more than doubling the Earth's hydrosphere. Jupiter reacted differently. It fissioned and expelled
from itself the comet that was later to cause the catastrophe of the Exodus before turning into the planet
we now call Venus

In Ancient times, while these great wars in the heavens were taking place and the earth was in chaos, the
people were experiencing great floods, earthquakes, volcanoes  and other great disasters . Although there
were  people taking refuge underground and migrating to other lands, in hopes of finding  sanctuary from
what they saw as warring gods,  there was others taking advantage of the chaos , conquering countries
and annihilating races that got in their way.

It was during one of these times that Jehovah, the God of Abraham contracted the Israelites to exterminate
the people of Cain - forever wiping off them off the face of the earth and heaven, along with any memory of
their existence or teachings.  And from that time up until now a great cover up has been in motion.

Deuteronomy: "...And when the Lord your God delivers them to you and you defeat them, you must doom
them to destruction. Grant them no terms and give them no quarter. You shall tear down their altars, smash
their pillars, cut down their ˜sacred posts" and consign their images to the fire. You shall destroy all the
peoples that the Lord your God delivers to you, showing them no pity. The Lord your God will deliver them
up to you, throwing them into utter panic until they are wiped out. He will deliver their kings into your hand  
and you shall obliterate their name from under the heavens."

The symbol of twins represents the Good and Evil, the Sons and Daughters  of Darkness and the Sons and
Daughters  of Light. The Twins are the Devas and Asuras of the Hindus and the Sons of Light and Sons of
Darkness of the Essenes. They are the personifications of the two races that fight for world dominance . This
war has been going on since the dawn of time. The War between the Lemurians and Atlantians was the
War of Armageddon found in the biblical Book of Revelation.  This war mirrored the  primordial battle fought
in the heavens.

Armageddon (Hebrew)means  the same as Shambhala (in Sanskrit), "the Plains of Gathering".  We today
speak of the ˜gathering"of like minds, mysteriously coming together for some unknown reason.  Just as in
the past, the people of Light and Darkness are once again coming together for the great battle. As
prophesied , the armies of the world will gather, in the end of times, for "the war that is to end all wars". It
is this war that will close the Kali Yuga Cycle or Age.

Agents of a higher Intelligence  banished the Elder Gods "to their own realm , sealing the gateway.  The
Manhattan Project caused the seal to be dissolved. It is believed that these entities are presently preparing
for another attempt to come back into our Universe or Dimension.  The Dark Forces are being drawn back
through the suffering of millions of poverty stricken and undernourished people of the world.

"These ˜Forgotten Ones" now has access to Man on the Astral planes, mainly in the dream-state. Those
sections of humanity who exist in starvation conditions and in poverty are being used as the human
conscious gates for the ˜Forgotten Ones". The starving and desolate people's barriers between the waking
(reason) and dreaming (primal drive) states are now weakened. Although they have no physical strength to
bear arms, theirs is a massed power for the dark powers gathering within.

To meet the return of the Elder Race, man must be healed, whole and strong. This can be done only by
arousing the human consciousness on a planetary scale. We must come to grips with and heal the suffering
and proceed to a higher conscious destiny as part of a united humanity. Should we fail, the Gates will be
stormed and our worst fears will have arrived.

Jung speaks of the return of these archetypes in the following metaphor:
An archetype is like an old watercourse along which the water of life has flowed for centuries, digging a
deep channel for itself. The longer it has flowed in this channel the more likely it is that sooner or later the
water will return to its old bed."


THE EMPIRE BUILDERS AND THE RED HAIRED RACE

The Father of Biblical Archaeology, W.F.Albright, states that the Bible  is nothing more  than a literary legacy
of the Phoenician Brotherhood.  It is further proposed that the homogenous Jewish people coming from a
genetic group separate from all other white people is pure fallacy. Albright claims that the people of Moses
(Jewish Brotherhood) , the Germanic Teutons and the Aryan (Keltic- derived from Eire-yann) were all one in
the same. The true identity behind the Jew may be that of the high priests and ‘arch-tectons’ of the
Pyramids. Their people were later named after their language of sacerdotal code, Hebrew, which is  derived
from Ogham, the Green Languages or Language of the Trees. (Ogham is the language of the Druids. It was
deemed illegal for ‘lay’ persons to learn or use the ‘Ogham’ and if caught  were given the  â
€œgeasa,â€� which was the Druid death curse.) The Bardic ‘verbal tradition’ links the Qabala to Tao
and the Shamanic systems through the world.  Esoteric Christianity was birthed through the integration of
the Druid Wisdom and Christian Mysteries.

While the Greeks honored the ‘ancient ones’ as the ‘Keltoi’ or ‘Ogygia’,  Rome  
destroyed most of the great libraries in a  attempt to re-write history. It had been part of the destiny of
Rome to establish the ground for the development of the future initiation schools of Christianity.

From the writings of the German historian, C. Besoldus (1577-1638) ,we learn that the ‘Huns’ is
actually a Celtic work meaning ‘Great Magicians’. It seems that both ‘Druids’  and ‘Smithsâ
€™ carried the knowledge on how to create visions of such force that whole armies would shudder, quake
and run from the fields of battle.
According to Ovason , the mystery schools of Imperial Rome had ordained that Ireland should remain
untouched as a non-Roman periphery on the edge of the map of the Imperium. It was intended by the
initiation schools that this map would correspond to the future Christian world.

In David Ovason’s book ‘The Secrets of Nostradamus’ , we also learn that Nostradamus , an
initiate of the Hibernian Mysteries and an expert in the Ogham language, also belonged to an ancient and
secret inner sanctum known as The Sons of the Widow’, who were followers of the biblical Miriam. The
feminine Miriam later becomes the Mason’s masculine Hiram.

WHEN TIME BEGAN - THE TIME BEFORE THE SUN

In the ‘Time before Time’,  Saturn moved on a wildly elliptical path around the Sun , entering the
Solar System at 26 million year intervals. Some time in the last 6 to 3 million years, perhaps after passing
close to Jupiter, Saturn was placed in a much closer orbit around the Sun, very near Earth.

Then, in about 5800 BC, Saturn appears above Earth creating a plasma discharge to Earth. Although Earth
was  in a close orbit around the Sun, the stars were not to be  seen another 1700 years. Saturn is mostly
obscured, and only near the end of this period does it start to show itself like that of a giant ‘cosmic eggâ
€™ in the sky.  Saturn,  in effect,  captured and held the Earth in a sub-polar position until 3100 BC - when
then Earth broke away.

Much of what we know today as mythology is the oral records of these events witnessed by ancient man.
The mythological evidence that points to Saturn having once occupied a position above Earth's north polar
regions is found around the world. There is not a race on Earth that has not preserved at least one account
which states as much!

Saturn occupied a central position in the north celestial regions. Although it rotated widely, it was immovable
- not rising nor setting. It merely became brighter and more glorious each night as the Sun set. This seems
to have lasted for ages. According to Dwardu Cardona (1982) , “ It is the one single dictum of the
ancients from which all other beliefs are derived."

What is most interesting about all this is the psychological and cultural reaction of the people of Earth to
these events. The last 1000 years of this period (4200 BC to 3100 BC) was remembered as the "Age of the
Gods".  The deep rooted memories of this age has kept mankind yearning for ‘home’  and the
paradise it once was.

This  period was followed by a series of adjustments in planetary orbits,  which also had significant effects
on Earth and mankind.   Man  changed when Paradise closed -- not just the rapid changes to what we
would call civilization, but also the gradual achievement of a subjective consciousness.

Based off ancient mythology, records and discussions among his peers, Cardona is convinced that Saturn, at
one time,  was a true “ sun of nightâ€� , radiating its own light and was the ‘most’ conspicuous
object in the sky. This was a time that had ‘No Time’- when we did not have our Sun.

According to Cardona, this  body was observed by ancient man as a rotating sphere, which means that
markings of some sort were clearly visible on its surface. Since tradition insists there was no way of telling
time in those "days," these markings must have been of a fluctuating nature with no specific form retaining
a recognizable shape that could have been timed with each rotation. Fluctuating surface markings bespeak
an active atmosphere, perhaps in turmoil, and the impression one receives, especially in view of what
transpired later, is that Saturn was an unstable gaseous body.

Unlike the Sun, the luminary did not rise or set. It simply hung suspended in the north celestial pole, which
could only mean that it shared the same axis of rotation with Earth. More than that ancient texts speak of
this planetary deity as having ruled alone and in darkness.  The Sun, it is stated, was completely absent
from the sky.

Man remembers this Age as a time of perpetual night. But for Saturn to have been visible, it must have shed
some light. Since the light did not dissolve the gloom, the illumination must have been feeble. For fauna and
flora to have thrived, Saturn must also have shed warmth. Man himself went completely naked. He knew
nothing of chilling winds, cold rain, of snow, or ice.

During this period, Saturn does not seem to have been paid much heed by the people of Earth. But then an
event transpired of such stupendousness that it went down in the annals of mankind as “Day One -
When Time Beganâ€�.  It was then that Saturn suddenly flared up in nova-like brilliance, flooding the Earth
and its inhabitants with a blinding light. “The act of ‘Creation’ had commenced�.

When the light of the flare-up finally ebbed, man was presented with a ghastly sight. Spewing out from the
central orb was a multi-spiraled black mass that revolved and wound itself around its parent. Viewed as a
monster which the transformed god had to subdue, this was also the “‘Chaos’ out of which
creation was born�.

It seems to have been precisely at this point that the Sun made its appearance. Day now succeeded night. â
€œâ€˜Time’ had now come into the worldâ€�.

Saturn itself continued to shine as a sun in its own right. It was bright enough to keep the stars, except
those of first magnitude, from being seen. It was not however as bright as the Sun and, during the day, it
paled into a cloud-like ghost.

Two filaments detached themselves from Saturn's spiraling matter and were temporarily "lost" in the
reaches of space. The rest of this watery debris congealed into a ring around the orb. “The god had â
€˜organized’ his cosmosâ€�.

It was this "world" that man had witnessed god create, for in truth the creation did not originally refer to a
terrestrial realm. In time this ring resolved itself into a series of concentric bands -- first into three and later,
for the longest time, into seven. “These were the original seven "heavens" or seven "earths� - and
also the seven stages of creation, long after misunderstood as the ‘Seven Days’ of Creation� .

The light from the unveiled Sun illuminated Saturn's encircling ring as a gigantic crescent, and later as seven
nested ones. The other half of the band was only dimly lit, forming a crescent in shadow that was
nonetheless visible. Both crescents revolved in unison, perpetually chasing each other, around the
stationary orb. This, together with the now rising and setting Sun, ‘enabled man to calculate the
passage of time’.
The visual revolution of these crescents was naturally due to the rotation of the Earth. This means that the
Saturn-Earth System must have been at right angles to the Sun-Earth vector , but not necessarily
perpendicular to the plane of the ecliptic.

Nine smaller satellites, which were not formerly apparent, now appeared to revolve around Saturn. In
mythology they became the nine followers, or company, of the god. A cruci-form star-shape also appeared
as four bright rays radiating from the central orb.

A singular beam of light also appeared to taper upward from Earth's northern horizon, ‘connecting’
earth to Saturn's  realm in the sky.  â€œThis singular beam , or polar column, was the bond which tied â
€˜heaven’ to Earth and was known in all mythology as the  â€˜Cosmic Tree’.

There was a lithic bulge that was raised in a gravitational response to Saturn's close proximity. The axis
mundi would have rested on top of this bulge which would have accounted for the world-wide belief of - â
€œGod resting on his mountain of glory or the universal world mountain located at the Northâ€�.

Various atmospheric phenomena also appeared in conjunction with this polar sun in the form of Parhelia and
Parry halo arcs, although these, because of their very nature, were understandably impermanent. The most
amazing aspect of the Saturnian structure, however, was the uncanny resemblance it bore to the human
form, especially around the hour of midnight, when the sunlit crescent of its encircling rings appeared as two
uplifted arms. “The entire apparition was likened to a magnificent giant towering above the world for all
mankind to see.�

No earthly description can ever hope to do this phenomenon justice nor will we ever be able to fully  
appreciate the impact it must have had on the primitive psyche. Although the Sun itself might have been
brighter, Saturn was much more glorious. For untold generations Saturn's strange apparition became the
very focus of man's existence. “It was the fountainhead of all religious beliefs and the impetus behind
the rise of civilization�.

Unstable as this system might have been, it managed to sustain itself for an unspecified but long period of
time. Its formation ushered in an era that mythology remembers as the Golden Age. This was the Edenic
childhood of mankind, a time of prosperity and peace, during which the earth was said to have given freely
of its bounty.

In  approximately 3114 B.C. Saturn was in near collision with Jupiter. Plasma discharges were seen shooting
back and forth between the two planets and - “ recorded by our ancestors as ‘Battles among the
gods� ’.
Earth, Mars and Venus escaped to eccentric orbits. Mars, on a slightly larger orbit, partly coincided with
Earth’s orbit and was recorded visiting Earth as ‘Horus’ ten times for the next 300 years. “The
Age of the Gods end with the Flood of Gilgamesh.�

The two filaments that had detached themselves from Saturn's former spiral had gone into orbit around the
Sun. Each successive passage had brought them back into close proximity of the Saturnian system. These
were viewed by our ancestors as -  â€œmonsters which periodically threatened their godâ€�.

Eventually -at least one of them-  collided with the Earth. Composed mainly of water, this filament dispersed
itself across the Earth in a deluge that lasted for days causing the universal flood, which again was the
direct result of Saturn's initial flare-up. “This became referred to as the Flood of Gilgamesh�.
Saturn, with its cosmos, became unhinged. It was now seen to circle around the sky as the Earth, knocked
off its balance by the impact of the collision, began to wobble and topple. The ancient observers,
experiencing the Earth turning head over heels,  watched their god,  the Saturnian apparition , slide down
the sides of heaven and sink beyond Earth's horizon.

With the overturning of the Earth, the Sun reversed its path across the sky, rising where it had formerly set
and setting where it had formerly risen.  The quarters of the world had been displaced. All was not lost - â
€œas they watched their ‘god rose from the dead’â€�.

After a while the Earth righted itself and Saturn was seen to return to his post in his former glory. Their god
had risen from the dead. “To others he had been ‘saved by building an ark’�
Saturn became the biblical ‘Noah’ and his ‘Ark’ was the sunlit crescent seen in the sky!.
Textual evidence of Noah having sailed through the sky actually exists. Moreover, the word "ark" derives
from a root that, in more than one language, translates into an ancient name for Saturn.

The panic with which mankind had witnessed the death and disappearance of its divinity was temporarily
set aside.  But it soon became apparent that something was amiss with the deity -  Saturn had lost its
brightness and  wrinkles and blotches began to appearing over its surface. (The luminary's gaseous
envelope was re-asserting itself.) To those who looked on in horror - “ the risen deity had been struck
with leprosy and to others he was showing signs of his advancing ageâ€� . (We find  the Aged Saturn and
the Beginning of Time in depictions now of “ Old Father Time carrying his Clock�)

In the end, whatever force had held the planets rotating on the same axis dissipated. The polar column
severed itself from the main body while the ringed structure was seen to break up. Saturn's cosmos had
become unglued and literally fell apart.  - “The god, to some still dead, had been dismembered and the â
€˜umbilical cord (cosmic tree) that united Earth and Saturn became separatedâ€�.

The giant planet, growing ever dimmer, was seen to move slowly away. No longer a sun, it grew smaller as
it rose above the Earth until, eventually, it became the pin-point of light we now see in the night where it
was free to reconstruct a new system of rings.  In the surrounding sea of stars that now became the order
of the night - “ mankind saw the dissected members of its god�.

Thus Saturn was the only deity who was - “ born his own son; who lived on Earth; who died and
descended to the underworld; who rose again from the dead and finally ascended into heaven.� ( If the
tale sounds familiar, you now know its origin).

Certain mythological themes show us that , at some point, the planet Mars had passed through the fabric of
the polar column, temporarily trapping itself there before passing on. A repeat performance was what later
severed the polar column. According to Talbott, the polar column stretched earthward from Mars, with Mars
having been permanently suspended between Saturn and the Earth, rotating on the same common axis
with them. Visually, Mars was thus seen as a part and parcel of the same configuration. The polar column
would then have been seen as belonging to the Saturnian complexity without losing its identity with Mars.

Frederic Jueneman had his own ideas of what constituted the fabric of the polar column or the ‘ trunk of
the cosmic tree’. To him the axis mundi and world mountain were a separate phenomena.  The world
mountain was a tidal uplift of land. But the mechanics he had worked out to account for the polar column
was in its major constituents which he ascertained to have been air and water vapor. According to
Jueneman, these were "carried upward towards the nul-gravity at the apex between the two planets" in "a
columnar Rankine vortex."  - “ The axis mundi would thus have been a cosmic tornado seen from a
distance�. ( This fact lies in various ancient texts that actually described the axis as a cyclone, a
whirlwind, or churning hurricane.)

The Rankine Vortex answers another mystery. Based on an ancient Assyro-Babylonian text, De Santillana
and Von Dechend , concluded that the occurrence of the second deluge on Earth was caused by Mars. The
polar column contained an immense volume of moisture which would have been released when Mars
swooped by and severed it. As the column twisted and sank in its death throes, it would have poured its
water on Earth's northern hemisphere. This would thus account for those traditions which tell of a great
flood that roared down from the north.

Jueneman also described the effect of a bolus flow complete with Coriolis tendency which, at times, would
have split the ‘central pillar into two serpentine spouts’ . Entwining about each other, these were
later to give rise to  - “the god's twisted legs and the mythic ‘ caduceus’ popularly associated
with  Mercuryâ€�.
David Talbott , The Saturn’s Age, has the Earth, Mars, and Saturn "all rotating on a single axis extending
out from Jupiter." Talbott proposed a tentative date for the cosmic cataclysms to have been ‘within the
past 6-8,000 years, whereas Velikovsky opted for a safer period between 5 and 10,000 years ago.
Ancient texts  describe Jupiter as the god and/or star of the south, which would have meant that Jupiter
would have at that time been located in Earth's south polar sky. This configuration would have lessened the
Roche limit problem since the Earth would have been gravitationally attracted to both giants without
succumbing to either.

It would seem that Jupiter actually appeared from beyond Earth's horizon when the latter flipped over.
Saturn and Jupiter were seen to change places. It was said that Saturn made his acquaintance with the
southern constellations while the star of the south rose to occupy Saturn's vacated post. The seven bands
surrounding  Saturn disappeared with Saturn when the luminary dropped out of sight. Jupiter was encircled
by its own ringed system, which accounts for the apparent "theft." This mythological evidence could actually
have been used to predict the later discovery of the Jovian rings.

From the original chaos or a catastrophic event the father of the gods was born and from him/her was born
the succession of gods. And these gods were identified with the planets and other sky bodies. Could this
analogy not indicate to us that a true succession of birth throes in the heavens connect the birth of the
cosmos to that of the members of an earthly family?

The theory of Quanta-volution proposes that change in nature and life occur largely as the result of
catastrophic events; the events originate in the skies, which contain forces that are immeasurably greater
than any in man or Earth and that are especially electrical. Quanta-volution theory maintains that the world
from its beginnings, including the world of life and humanity, has changed largely by quantum leaps, rather
than by tiny increments over great stretches of time.

Now let us take a look at our mythology and written traditions.. It was during this time, that ‘Time Beganâ
€™ - It was during the Age  when Uranus gave place to Chronos and Atlas. Cronus (Saturn)was the son of
Uranus and Gaia - the youngest of the twelve Titans. (Saturn has 12 moons, the largest of which is Titan,
which held power for untold ages, until deposed by Zeus) He was at the Dawn of the Ages of Gods, the
Protector and Sower of the Seed. His wife and sister was the Titan, Rhea and their offspring were Demeter,
Hestia, Hera, Hades, Poseidon and Zeus.

According to Greek mythology, Uranus hid his children away in the bowels of the earth (Tartarus) as he was
aghast at the sight of them (afraid of their great strength and power). Enraged with the treatment of her
children by Uranus and not wanting to produce any further offspring from him, Gaia devised a plan to end
the passions of Uranus through castration. Her Son Cronus came to her call and with a sickle that Gaia had
provided him, severed the genitals from Uranus. From the blood that fell to the earth (Gaia) were born the
Erinyes (Furies), the Giants and also the Meliae (Nymphs of the manna ash trees). Now only the Erinyes
remain and will stay until the world is free of sin.

After Cronus had castrated Uranus, he and his wife, Rhea, took the thrown. Under their power, a time of
harmony and prosperity began, which became known as the ‘Golden Age’. It was a time when it was
said that people lived without greed or violence, a time without toil or the need for laws.

Cronus knew, according to prophecy,  that at a time would come that he would be overthrown by one of his
own children.  To prevent this from happening he began to swallow his newborn, taking them at birth then
swallowing them whole, retaining them inside his own body where they could do him no harm.

Rhea did not like the thoughts of losing all her children, and with the help of Gaia she saved Zeus from this
fate. Rhea wrapped a stone in Zeus' swaddling clothes which Cronus took and immediately swallowed
thinking it was the child. Gaia and Rhea's plan worked well and the baby Zeus was taken to Crete, and
there, in a cave on Mount Dicte, the divine goat Amaltheia suckled and raised the infant Zeus.

As soon as Zeus had reached manhood, he planned to punish his father and seize the power from him. In
order to get the allies for the war with Cronus, he decided to release his brothers and sisters first. He asked
Metis, daughter of Oceanus, for help, and she gave Cronus a drug which made him vomit up the stone first
and then all the children he had swallowed: Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Hades and Poseidon. With his brothers
and sisters, Zeus attacked Cronus and the Titans. The war lasted ten years. Then, Gaea prophesied victory
to Zeus, if he took as allies those whom Cronus had locked in Tartarus. To do this Zeus came secretly to
Campe, the gaoleress of Tartarus, killed her, took her keys and released Cyclopes and the Hecatoncheires
(Hundred-handed Ones). The Cyclopes then gave Zeus thunder and lightning; they gave Hades a magic
helmet which made the wearer of it invisible; and they gave Poseidon a trident. So, Hades put the helmet
on his head and, becoming invisible, managed to steal Cronus's weapons. While Poseidon was diverting his
attention by threatening with the trident, Zeus struck down with the thunderbolt. Cronus and the Titans
were defeated, and they were all (except Atlas) expelled from Heaven and locked up in Tartarus. Atlas, as
their war-leader was being ordered to carry the sky on his shoulders. Having won the war, the gods shared
the power among themselves. Zeus was given the Heaven and became the new ruler of the universe;
Poseidon was given the Sea, and Hades the Underworld. The era of the Olympians now began.

Soon, the gods had to start a new war, this time with the Giants. Namely, Gaea was full of rage because her
children were imprisoned in Tartarus. She wanted revenge and she persuaded Giants to attack gods. But
once again, the Olympians achieved a victory. The destruction of the Giants infuriated Gaea even more. To
Tartarus she bore her youngest son Typhon, the largest monster ever seen, who was the Zeus's final
challenge (see Typhon).

Zeus was a harsh and strict ruler. He considered humans lowly creatures and treated them as such. At this
time, man had been living in the depths of the dark caves of the earth and did not dare venture out. The
gods of Olympus decided  to bring man back out of the caves of the earth, into the light. However, man was
without strength and means of defense, dependent of the gods for their very survival.
Prometheus,  felt pity for mankind and wished to help . Prometheus stole some of the  holy fire that
belonged to the gods and hid it in a hollow log.  He then brought this fire to mankind, which they used to
survive.

The god Zeus was enraged at what Prometheus had done and punished him severely for it.  Zeus  sent
down Pandora to Epimetheus to be his wife, who carried with her a box of demons (from greed to spite)  to
torture humanity After Pandora unleashed these demons, the remaining immortals on earth quickly
departed for Olympus. The last one to leave was the goddess of virtue and daughter of Zeus and Themis,  
Astraea. (As legend goes, although she went to the heavens, she still hopes to return to earth, and she
watches from the sky every night to see when earth will be ready for her to return.)

He tied Prometheus with large chains onto the side of the Caucasus mountains.  Every morning an eagle
would appear and eat the liver of Prometheus which would grow back at night. Prometheus could not die as
he was an immortal, and therefore was cursed by Zeus to undergo this torture forever. After many centuries
his torment finally came to end when the hero Heracles (Hercules)  freed him.

Humanity prospered as a result of the kind action of Prometheus. Mankind managed to overcome all its'
fears and progressed rapidly.  However, Mankind became disrespectful to the gods and Zeus decided it was
time to completely wipe them out, except for those that remained virtuous to him.  He searched far and wide
and found only two people that he deemed virtuous.  These two were Devkolionas the son of Prometheus
and his wife Pira.  Zeus told Devkolionas to create an ark  and enter it with his wife. After they were aboard,
, Zeus would create a flood which would destroy mankind.  When the ark was complete and Devkolionas
and his wife entered, Zeus opened the gates of heaven and flooded the world. When the waters subsided
the ark came to rest on the great mountain of Parnassus.  Devkolionas and his wife then came out and gave
glory and homage to the god Zeus for saving them and it from their union that mankind descended.

In Roman mythology when Zeus (Jupiter)ascended the throne, Cronus (Saturn) fled to Rome and
established the Golden Age, a time of perfect peace and harmony, which lasted as long as he reigned. In
memory of the Golden Age, the Feast of Saturnalia was held every year in the winter at the Winter Solstice.
During this time no war could be declared, slaves and masters ate at the same table, executions were
postponed and it was a season for giving gifts. This was a time of total abandon and merry making. It
refreshed the idea of equality, of a time when all men were on the same level.  Christians adopted the feast
and renamed it Christmas. And when the festival ended, in accordance to Saturn and it’s ruling sign,
Capricorn (the settling of accounts), the tax collectors appeared and all money owed out to government,
landlords, or debtors had to be accounted for.

The Greek poet, Hesiod wrote of the five Ages of mankind in the 8th century B.C. He wrote that there was
the Golden Age, Silver, two ages of Bronze and the Iron Age. Each Age was ruled by a different god.
Following is what he wrote about these Ages of Man:

"The Golden Age was first; But when good Saturn, banish'd from above, Silver Age Was driv'n to Hell, the
world was under Jove. “
"Succeeding times a Silver Age behold, Excelling brass, but more excell'd by gold. Then summer, autumn,
winter did appear: And spring was but a season of the year. The sun his annual course obliquely made,
Good days contracted, and enlarg'd the bad. Then air with sultry heats began to glow; The wings of winds
were clogg'd with ice and snow; And shivering mortals, into houses driv'n, Sought shelter from th'
inclemency of Heav'n. . . “

"To this came next in course, the Brazen Age -  A warlike offspring, prompt to bloody rage, Not impious yet...
The Hard steel succeeded then: Iron Age And stubborn as the metal, were the men. Truth, modesty, and
shame, the world forsook: Fraud, avarice, and force, their places took. Then sails were spread. . ."

Several hundred years later Herodotus addressed Hesoid's notion of planets being gods in human form by
repeating what Egyptian priests told him about four different ages:
"So, in eleven thousand three hundred and forty years, said the priests, there had never been a god in man-
shape; nor, moreover, neither beforetime nor thereafter, among the rest of those who became kings of
Egypt, had any such thing happened.

During this time, they said, there were four times when the sun rose out of his wonted place...twice rising
where now he sets, and twice setting where now he rises ..."and", say the priests, "nothing became
different among the Egyptians, for all these disturbances, neither products of the Earth nor products of the
river, nor yet in respect of diseases or death."

If Egyptian priests who made the above statement to Herodotus were correct, the sun "twice rising where
now he sets, and twice setting where now he rises" would probably have been caused by polar shifts.
The Age of Gold (Cronus) was the purest age, when no labor was required and weather was always
pleasant. It was virtually a place of pleasant surroundings and of abundance. Death was not an unpleasant
eventuality and people occupied their time in pleasant pursuits.

The Roman poet Ovid said , Saturn was king of a "Golden Age" in the time of Arcadians who lived on Earth
before Jupiter was born, and are of a race that "predates the moon."  Ovid also wrote of that time,  "The
earth gave forth all good things of her own accord, and mankind, content with foods created without labor,
picked the fruit of the trees and the mountain strawberries and the cornel cherries and the mulberries
clinging to the wild thickets and acorns that fell from the spreading oak of Jupiter.

Spring was eternal, and the gentle breezes caressed the flowers, all springing forth without seed, with clear
warm air. Soon, also, the unplowed earth was rich with grain, and fields always fertile, were white with the
heavy beards of corn. Then rivers of milk, then streams of nectar flowed forth . . ."

Ancient Egyptians frequently referred to a Golden Age by the name of Zep Tepi, 'The First Time' of Osiris or
the ˜Age of Ra".  (the constellation known to us as Orion). They believed Zep Tepi had long predated the
Pyramid Age.
The Chinese referred to it as the Age of Perfect Virtue and the Hindus had a Golden Age called the Satya
Yuga or Perfect Age.

Traditions around the world, thought the Golden Age to be a˜timeless epoch before the arrival of discord
and war, and before the ˜linkage™ of heaven with Earth was broken.

Most of those early cultures also connected the Golden Age with the rule of a Universal Monarch, such as
the Akkadian Anu, the Sumerian An, the Hindu Yama, the Persian Yima, the Norse Frodhi, the Chinese Huang-
ti and the Mexican Quetzalcoatl. All of these are claimed to be founding kings, often as the first in what
those peoples believed was an unbroken line of rulers.

Chronos is derived from the Greek word Cronus meaning "time".  According to the Mediterranean traditions,
Chronos,  the˜time people", were based in many places including Italy, Sicily and North Africa.  It would thus
seem that they may have controlled the sea trade by their strangle holds on the Central Mediterranean -
since ˜time began™ . The ˜time-worshiping™ people could have been the ˜Sea People, also known as the
Phoenicians.

When truth is actualized in the Book of Revelation and the Apocalypse, we find that ˜Apocalypse" literally
means to uncover the Goddess Calypso and Calypso phonetically means by way or by fact of the Goddess
Kali
