In this video Dr Kevin McCairn PhD neuroscientist has a discussion with E. Michael Jones Catholic writer, former professor at Saint Mary’s College in Indiana and the current editor of Culture Wars magazine concerning consciousness and metaphysics. At the conclusion of the discussion after E. Michael Jones leaves, I join Dr McCairn for a chat. Though I differ on the theology it was refreshing to listen to E. Michael Jones and his rational presentation of metaphysics.

Logos, language, mathematics, and nature

My position is that there is a connection between these abstract concepts which are to a lesser or greater degree focused on nature and on the activity of divine agency in the material world. The following short video has an interesting understanding of the role that language plays:


Language is unique in communicating and structuring abstract ideas, crucial to our thought processes and therefore of critical importance to consciousness and metaphysics. It also determines relationships and hierarchical structures. I give my children and my dog a name, they do not name me. When language is combined with mathematics and that is used to describe creation, we are dealing with something uniquely powerful and as far as I can determine this first occurred with the proto-Hebrew language and passed via Phoenician to the Greek language. Below are some initial findings which I hope to express in a separate article, but they demonstrate that Genesis encodes the cyclical nature of the destructive and creative process that was also known to other ancient civilizations. What makes the Semitic approach unique is that it combines language and mathematics (sacred geometry) with revelation resulting in an ontological unfolding of a continuously evolving manifestation of consciousness. The divine name is not just linked with what God is, but with what God will be. Everything lives and moves and has its being in him, ipso fact he is then the source of consciousness and we are nodes in the matrix. The Genesis narrative highlights alienation and existential angst.

"And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons" (Gen 3:7).

The word naked has the following values: ‘ê-rum-mim (naked) עֵֽירֻמִּ֖ם – 360 Standard / 72 Ordinal and 360 x 72 =25,920 years which is the number of years in the Platonic Great Year considered by the ancients (and Newton) to reflect the Precession Cycle. The full Hebrew verse has the standard value 4066 whereas the other verse with the plural form (‘ă·rūm·mîm עֲרוּמִּים   std 366 / 78 ord) in Genesis 2:25 has the value 2,626 (std) and 4,066-2,626 = 1,440 (the minutes in a 24-hour day) which is 2 cycles of 720.  The figures 72 and 144 (or multiples thereof) are found in all the ancient precession cycle calendars from the Babylonian, Mayan, Indian etc. 18 x 1,440 =25,920

(note that both numbers reduce to 9), moreover the sum of the squares of these two numbers (144^2 +72^2) is also 25,920.  The value of the word naked pre-fall (Gen 2:25- 366/78) is different to the value after the fall (Gen 3:7 naked= 360/72). The serpent in Gen 3:1 is described as cunning (crafty, shrewd) with the word cunning having the same values   (366/78  both reduce to 6) as naked in Gen 2:25 (before the fall) with the full verse (as we have seen) reflecting double the yhvh name value (2626) reflecting their primeval innocence with emphasis on both male and female imaging yhvh (And they were both naked the man and his wife and were not ashamed) hence the double 26.

That the word naked can when re-pointed and differentially contextualized (cf. Job 5:12 and Job 15:5 עֲרוּמִ֑ים) take on the negative connotation of crafty (=the serpent) demonstrates that the omniscient narrator already anticipates that the idyllic harmony will be ruined by rebellion. The phrase “were not ashamed” (ולא יתבששו) just happens to have the ordinal value of 101 and 26 x 101 =2626 (the std value reduces to 11=2). We saw previously the mathematics and sacred Geometry connected with Genesis 1:1 –

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Gen 1:1)

Std value =2,701 Ordinal =298      בראשית ברא אלהים את השמים ואת הארץ


There is much more, we are just scraping the surface.











The verse triangle can be inscribed in a circle with a radius of 42 units. Adding the seven Hebrew words of Genesis 1:1 in different combinations, one will find 23 multiples of the number 37, including a compound figurate square of 23 hexagrams (37 7²) and cubes of hexagrams (37 2³) and (37 3³). Random chance would indicate only about three multiples. Note that each of the seven words is used exactly twelve times in making up the 23 multiples of 37 (i.e., 913 appears twelve times; 203 appears twelve times, and so on). Here are the gematria and order of each of the seven Genesis 1:1 words: 913, 203, 86, 401, 395, 407. And there is much more (reserved for future articles).

The Logos

There is therefore a nexus between language, mathematics and nature resulting in the revelation of what John refers to as the Logos in his prologue. The first verse of the Fourth Gospel builds on the geometry of Genesis 1:1 by adding a plinth to the triangle:

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God - Ἐν ἀρχῇ ἦν ὁ Λόγος,  καὶ ὁ Λόγος ἦν πρὸς τὸν Θεόν, καὶ Θεὸς ἦν ὁ Λόγος. 

Standard =3627, Ordinal= 605









The Triangular  plinth of 3627 has 12 divisors with a totient of φ = 2160 which happens to be a Platonic month. The value of the first triangle (2701) and plinth (3627) is equivalent to the 112 th triangular number (6328) which also happens to be the length of the base making the perimeter 333 dots and the product of the digit pairs (63 x 28) is the square of 42 as does the ordinal value of both verses, which sums up to the Triangular number of 42 (903).








Therefore, we have a direct connection between the Genesis 1:1 and that of the Fourth Gospel with the appearance of Jesus on the scene described in terms of creation. Moreover, the name used for Jesus in the Talmud (וּשֵׁי Yēšū) which is often hostile towards him has the ordinal value 37 which is the same as the Hebrew word for wisdom which is in turn the 37th triangular number (666+37 =703) and Yēšū also has the standard value of 316 which is the mirror of 613 the number of commandments (mitzvot) in the Torah (Tractate Makkot 23b). With the word becoming flesh (καὶ ὁ λόγος σὰρξ ἐγένετο : kai o logos sarx egeneto) the word flesh (sarx) in the Greek giving us the value 361 we have the unusual triumvirate of : 316 (Yēšū) 613 (word) 361 (flesh) the sum giving the 1290 days of Daniel 12:11 (from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away…).

LIVE – E. Michael Jones: Consciousness and Metaphysics (3:14)


Is the Prologue of John influenced by Platonic, Philonic or Gnostic concepts?

A case can be made that all three strands of thought cross-fertilized each other especially as the Fourth Gospel was written to the church at Ephesus and the Gospel emphasized the superiority of Christ over John the Baptist and the influence of Jewish gnostic sorcery (cf. Acts 19) a church that was made known the manifold wisdom (Sophia) of God (Eph 3:10)….  And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge (gnosis), that ye might be filled with all the fulness (pelorma) of God (Eph 3:19). Ephesians is employing gnostic terminology, the problem was that Gnosticism became “secret knowledge” only available to initiates and it tended to regard the material creation as evil and slip into Docetism, namely that Christ’s body was not human but either a phantasm or of real but celestial substance, and that therefore his sufferings were only apparent. For this reason, early Christianity rejected extreme forms of Gnosticism and the Fourth Gospel emphasizes that the Logos became flesh thus emphasizing his physical body and his human nature.

Many Christians use the Latin word incarnation for the Logos which is derivative from the ecclesiastical Latin verb incarno, itself derived from the prefix in- and caro, “flesh”, meaning “to make into flesh” or, in the passive, “to be made flesh” as in the Word became flesh in the Latin Vulgate “et Verbum caro factum” understood as  a hypostatic union of the divine nature and the human nature and pointing to pre-existence, co-substantiality etc. More apropos to Johannine usage would be the term phanerōthē (Greek: φανερωθῇ) carrying the idea of manifestation, a word that occurs frequently in the Greek NT, particularly in the Gospel of John with reference to Jesus’ manifesting to Israel (John 1:31), manifesting glory (John 2:1), manifesting truth and light (John 3:21), manifesting the name (John 17:6), manifesting his risen self (John 21:2,14).  Jesus is seen by John as the ultimate manifestation of the name (I AM) although a lesser manifestation is encountered in the healing of the blind man whose visage was altered that much as to make him unrecognizable to the crowd who questioned his identity to which he replied with the “I AM” formula; “Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I AM “ (John 9:9  Note that he in italics in the KJV is added by the translator). Jesus explicitly says- “Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest (phanerōthē) in him” (John 9:3).  In the act of healing the blind man becomes an example of the manifestation of divine power. Moreover, the phrase this is he is the 45 th time that Οὗτος (Houtos) is used in the Fourth Gospel with the other forty-four times referencing Jesus, where it is either translated as this one, or in combination “this man” or as “the same” as in the first occurrence of the gospel; “The same was in the beginning with God” (John 1:2) with all 45 occurrences reflecting the value of Adam in the Hebrew (45), Jesus is depicted as the last Adam ἔσχατος Ἀδὰμ (1 Cor 15:45) the express image (Heb 1:3).

It is thought that the Hellenistic Jewish philosopher Philo merged the Ancient Greek Logos philosophy (the principle of cosmic reason) with the Hebrew concept of Wisdom, God’s companion and intimate helper in creation (See Prov 8 article on wisdom to follow soon). Logos became a technical term in Western philosophy beginning with Heraclitus (c. 535 – c.  475 BC), who used the term for a principle of order and knowledge, but the concept was already in use in the Hebrew scriptures before it was popularized in Greek philosophy.  Moreover, sacred geometry, higher mathematics and the length of the Great Precession Year was encoded into the language before it appeared in Greece (watch from 16 mins):


The fact remains that the concept of LOGOS in the Hebrew Bible was earlier than the Greek philosophers and the remarkable “coincidence” that the translation of John 1:1 having the same value as Psalm 107:20 is remarkable.


A rough Timeline demonstrates that the sacred geometry and mathematics in Scripture  is earlier than the Greeks and earlier than  Hermes Trismegistus / Gnosticism.

Exposition Johannine prologue

The translation used is the KJV of John 1.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.


Note: The absence of an article in the phrase In the beginning rendering In beginning note also the accusative preposition pros indicates movement towards a destination called THE God differentiated from god by the absence of an article. G. R. S. Mead places the prologue of the Fourth Gospel in a gnostic context and is partly correct as it was at Ephesus that followers of the John the Baptist were found (Acts 19:1-3) and the Mandæans (lit. Gnostics—mandā = gnōsis) of the lower Euphrates who are the only known surviving community of the ancient Gnosis.The Sidrā d’Yahyā (Book of John) deal with the life and teachings of John the Baptizer.  Mead  renders the first verse as; “In Beginning was Mind; and Mind was with GOD” which offers the temptation to substitute mind with “tensor field” or “consciousness” or perhaps translate Logos as “purpose” or “idea” or “reason” until we realize that Logos is translated as Word 208x  and  as saying 50x in Young’s concordance and sending forth the word is idiom for sending an agent (like a prophet) to speak on God’s behalf.  The terms of the Fourth Gospel must be defined by the Johannine corpus because he has his own distinct idiom. Thus, John refers to The Word in three other places, and in each case his allusion is to Jesus the Man. “His name is called the Word of God” (Rev. 19:13). “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life” (1 Jn. 1:1); that is, they heard his preaching, they saw his miracles, they looked upon him crucified, and they handled him when risen from the dead (Lk. 24:39). “Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw” (Rev. 1:2). Even this passage, which at first sight seems to require a different meaning for “the word of God” lines up with the others when it is realised that this is the first of a series of triads which meet the reader in Revelation 1 (compare verses 4b, 5a, 7). In fact, “the testimony of Jesus and all things that he saw” is the exact equivalent of 1 John 1:2. The tentative conclusion concerning “the Word” in John 1:1 would therefore appear to be that it means Jesus the Man, and not Jesus the Idea or Purpose.

The identity of the expression: “In the beginning” with Genesis 1:1 has led many to assume that John 1:1 refers to the beginning of the visible creation. But a careful use of the concordance reveals that out of 16 other instances where John speaks of “the beginning”, in no single case does he allude to Genesis 1:1. Admittedly, in two of them he refers to Genesis, but in both instances (John 8:44; 1 John 3:8) the allusion is to the serpent. This, however, is Genesis 3 and not the beginning of creation, when all material things were made by the word of God: “And God said…”

It is impressive to observe that all other occurrences of “the beginning” in John’s writings have to do with the beginning of the ministry of Jesus or the beginning of discipleship or some related idea. A few examples:

“And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning” (John15:27).

“And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you” (John 16:4).

‘Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning” (John 8:25).

“For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him” (John. 6:64).

“Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning” (1 John 2:7).

“For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another” (1 John 3:11).

This list should be conclusive. John 1:1 is speaking about the beginning of the ministry of Jesus. Hence, appropriately, the immediate reference to the Baptist: “There was a man sent from God whose name was John” (v.6), a reference which in the traditional exposition is badly out of place.  Mark’s gospel is now seen to have exactly the same approach: “The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; as it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face” (Mk. 1:1,2). And in Luke’s introduction also: “Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us, even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses-and-ministers of the Word” (Lk. 1:1,2). Note here also, that, as in John, “the Word” must be Jesus; the phrase “eyewitnesses and ministers” requires this.

So we see that it is a matter of allowing the Bible to interpret itself.

There is much more that I could say  but the article would become too long.   It is however interesting to note that John the Baptist is and we are explicitly told that he was not that Light (John 1:6-9).  The reason for the emphasis on Lights is because the annunciation of the birth of John occurred (see my commentaries) at the Feast of Lights a Feast that celebrated the cleansing and re-dedication of the temple (cf. John 2:21) after the defilement wrought by Antiochus Epiphenes.  The birth of Jesus who was six months younger than the Baptist would have seen him presented at the temple at Pentecost as the fruit of the Spirit.  The point is that John the Baptist was the forerunner to herald the new temple (Jesus Christ) and the church at Ephesus need to be reminded that despite the unusual circumstances of John’s birth he was not “that light”.

John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.  And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace (John 1:15-16).

The emphasis is on the superiority of Christ note the use of the word fullness or the Greek pléróma. The Greek pléróma (plērōmatos, πληρώματος) in Gnosticism understands the spiritual universe as the abode of God and of the totality of the divine powers and emanations but a similar phraseology occurs in the Greek version of Isaiah 6:3 (LXX): “Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full (πλήρης/plérés) of his glory”. The root (plē-) expresses totality, and implies full quantity (“up to the max”). DNTT (1,733) notes its cognates (plērēs, plēroō, plērōma) all come from the root (plē-/plēthō) meaning “full in quantity.” Thus plḗthō (“to fill or complete”) refers to “that which is complete in itself because of plenitude, entire number or quantity. . . . the whole aggregate,” WS, 395,96). In Christian theology the totality or fullness dwells in Christ denoting that he received the spirit without measure (John 3:34). So, although there is cross fertilization one need not speak of dependence but rather shared motifs, however, once again we see that the Johannine corpus draws on the Old Testament for conceptual language.

Not only is Jesus depicted as superior to John, he is greater than Jacob (John 4:12), has a greater witness than John (John 5:36), is greater than Abraham (John 8:53), he is before John (John 1:15), and before Abraham (John 8:58) he has the fullness and is the I AM and yet the the Father is greater than him (John 14:28) for  he is greater than all (John 10:29). Rater than construct theories to explain these apparent anomalies and contradictions  Christians should examine scriptures where it is explained how Abraham “saw my day”  because in the mount of the LORD it shall be seen (Gen 22:14) and  Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off (Gen 22:4 ) and he called the place Yahweh Yireh  or Yah will be seen.  The love of God would be manifest in the place where Jesus was sacrificed.  This is about manifestation and bearing the name.

In John 1:30 the Greek for ‘preferred’ is literally ‘became’ (γέγονεν, gegonen) and the Greek for man (ἀνὴρ,anēr) is very often used to refer to a husband. A literal reading could therefore just as well be, “after me cometh a husband,who has come before me, for he was first of me”. In the case of Redemption by the kinsman redeemer the one that comes AFTER and takes the place of the dead husband comes BEFORE. Jesus born after John took precedence before him because he had come to raise seed to the dead.


  • Note that the women praising Ruth say, “… do thou worthily in Ephratah, and be famous in Bethlehem” (Ruth 4:11) and that Jesus was born in Bethlehem from the line Of David and a direct descendant of Ruth.

I could continue writing about the Fourth Gospel but this must suffice with some earlier material on John 1:3-4 and staircase parallelism.

Scripture is multivalent and encoded sacred geometry and mathematics in the language before the Greeks systematized their mathematics and their philosophy. The fact that the encoding operates across the  Hebrew/Greek language barrier with reference to cosmology and astrophysics is remarkable. Scripture can only be understood intertexually and any deviance from proper hermeneutics leads to error. That said, scripture can be read by a child and  the truth can be grasped in a child like manner.

Complexity emerges from simple rules employed iteratively and the outcome of the “causal chain” is the same regardless of the input variables. But who sets those initial rules? As E. Michael Jones inferred, philosophy and rationality will only get you so far as beyond a certain point is unknowable.  At this point the believer falls back on faith which in its outworking becomes as real as “data” and is classed as “evidence” of unseen realities (Heb 11:1) as the consciousness of the believer with the help of God the source of all, calls into being the things that are not as if they were (Rom 4:17).

Jesus was superior to all who came before but by his own admission he was not greater than the Father. No man has seen the Father yet whoever saw Jesus in action had seen the Father (John 14:8-10). Unlike Adam he was the perfect image and the face of Jesus is the reflection of God’s glory (2 Cor 4:6). World without end. Amen.


The Great Year

The Great Year

Update 1.3 (minor corrections,spelling etc)

This article will draw together scientific and mythological evidence to clarify what has been lost to the sands of time and I believe deliberately hidden.  Although the approach I take is from a Biblical perspective there is considerable overlap with other belief systems and myths from antiquity.  Why is that?  The ancients were not “enlightened” like us as they had no “science” and yet they built structures that we would struggle to build today (Pyramids, Stonehenge).  All those structures were related to the heavens.  For them there was no difference between science and religion.  When I completed my exposition of the Apocalypse, I gave it the title Pattern Recognition In The Apocalypse (PRITA) in recognition of the repeated, cyclical nature of the revelation.   In similar fashion it is becoming apparent that the whole Bible speaks of the cyclical nature of the cosmic cycles and of “heaven” coming down to earth.

The cosmic cycle of the Great Year

The term Great Year is defined by scientific astronomy as “The period of one complete cycle of the equinoxes around the ecliptic” which is a period 25,920 years. [1] This is known as precession.

As a circle has 360 degrees (an Assyro-Babylonian concept) [2] this means that it takes 25,290/360 = 72 years to traverse one degree.    The average global life expectancy in 2021 was 72.81 years. Our lives are therefore one day in the Great Year of the celestial clock and this accords with the threescore and ten years accorded to man (Ps 90:10) in which Moses says, “For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night” (v.4). Indeed, it takes humanity 360 generations of 72 years to complete one cycle of the cosmic clock. Well might Moses pray “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom’ (v.12) as he had but little time left because he knew he was about to die and was not allowed to enter the promised land. He was only able to view it from the top of Mt Nebo.  However, I digress.


Here is a scientific demonstration of the physics behind the Great Year:

Precession of Earth (3 min)

This article will examine the biblical ramifications of this little understood cosmic cycle that was obviously well understood by the ancients.  The cycle acts as a cosmic “clock” as our solar system travels through space. That does not mean that the zodiac influences or determines our future directly (as in astrology) but that it may well indicate when we enter or transition into “bad sectors” of space where electro-magnetic energy, interstellar dust clouds, plasma and comets can upset our equilibrium.  We are not a static system but dynamic and our solar system is moving through space at 70,000 km/hr and indeed our Galaxy is moving, while space itself is expanding.  Wrap your head around that.

The helical model – our solar system is a vortex (3 min)

Uniformitarianism verses Catastrophism

Before we engage with the mythology, I would like to say a few things about the two different geological worldviews.  The first is Uniformitarianism or Gradualism which posits that the earth changes we see are the result of millions upon millions of years of gradual change.  Mountains are thrust up gradually.  New land (islands) appears gradually.  Erosion gradually carves out rivers and wears away mountains.  New species adapt gradually (and randomly) in a process known as evolutionary Darwinism.   Now, I am not one to deny the mechanism of evolutionary change and pressure to speciate, but does it tell the whole story?  Life is far too complex for such simplistic all-encompassing paradigms and the evidence says otherwise.

We have had periods where the climate was in a steady state. That was the dinosaur age and the extra CO2 and higher temperatures allowed lush vegetation and huge creatures to develop.  They ruled the earth 60 million years ago.  No glacial periods.  Sixty-million years ago, dinosaurs had the ultimate bad day. With a devastating asteroid impact, a reign that had lasted 180 million years was abruptly ended. It went boom.  And then suddenly mammals appeared, and we started to have ice-ages interspersed with warm (inter-glacial) periods.  New life appeared suddenly.   The fossil records point to the sudden extinction and arrival of new species.   Does evolution occur?   Yes, but at times it seems to be accelerated and intelligently directed.  One theory calls it punctuated equilibrium.  We have long periods of gradual change and then boom. I believe that Uniformitarianism or materialistic Darwinism has been deliberately used to pull the wool over our eyes.  Materialism provides some of the answers but not all of them, especially not the mechanism for rapid change.


Archeoastronomers are interested in the ages because some researchers believe that ancient civilizations often depicted cultural references to the ages. Archeoastronomers in general do not ‘believe’ in astrology, but they study the cultural traditions of societies that did refer extensively to astrology.

Think of it like this – Stonehenge was obviously built with some sort of cosmic and/or religious function in mind to do with the equinoxes etc. Remember religion and science were one and the same in archaic times.  If you can determine what the sky looked like thousands of years ago (by mathematical calculations of orbits etc) then you can theorize why the structure was built.  The same with the Pyramids and their orientation to the stars (Sirius I think?) this also allows you to date structures because of the precession.  Watch this very interesting video (14 min):

HIDDEN MATHEMATICS – Randall Carlson – Ancient Knowledge of Space, Time & Cosmic Cycles (2 hours)

Extremely interesting associations with “sacred geometry” that go far beyond “coincidence” and that show that the ancients were not dumb cave men. This understanding reaches far back in antiquity beyond modern history. I believe some of it has been purposefully hidden and obfuscated as possession of such knowledge gives the ruling class an advantage. It is not for nothing that the Masonic motto is Order out of Chaos. As Randall points out all cultures have these cycles look at these numbers coming back in the Hindu religion in the Yuga Cycle.

Giorgio de Santillana (1902 – 1974) became professor of the History of Science in the School of Humanities at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1954, and along with Hertha von Dechend they published a book entitled Hamlet's Mill, An Essay on Myth and the Frame of Time in 1969. It was an attempt to marry science and mythology that had become separated by the ancient Greeks. Santillana and von Dechend believed that the old mythological stories handed down from antiquity were not random fictitious tales but were accurate depictions of celestial cosmology clothed in tales to aid their oral transmission. The chaos, monsters, and violence in ancient myths are representative of the forces that shape each age. They believed that ancient myths are the remains of preliterate astronomy that became lost with the rise of the Greco-Roman civilization.

In Hamlet's Mill it is stated that the ancient Greeks knew of three successive destructions that correlate to three ages, and that since the beginning of history the vernal point has moved through Taurus, Aries, and Pisces. Hesiod in Works and Days refers to five successive ages. [3]

Cyclical Resets

Cosmogony and the Great Year in the Bible

Sir William Drummond published Oedipus Judaicus: Allegory in the Old Testament in 1811. Drummond expounds on his hypothesis that a greater part of the Hebrew Scriptures are merely allegorical writings that hide the true content. Furthermore, the Orientalists were mainly concerned with astronomy and most of their ancient myths are really disguised astronomical records. Drummond believed that the 49th chapter of Genesis contains prophecies allied to astronomy and that the twelve tribes of Israel represented the 12 zodiacal signs.

Drummond makes his case that at the time of Abraham, the Amorites first recorded the shift from the Age of Taurus to the Age of Aries as represented by the year commencing with the Ram (Aries) rather than the bull (Taurus). The Book of Joshua indicates that by the time of Moses the equinoxes had already shifted from Taurus to Aries, as Moses had ordained that the civil year should commence with the month of Nisan (Aries) rather than the month of Taurus. The feast of the Passover is probably a celebration of the Age of Aries with the Paschal Lamb representative of Aries, traditionally associated with the symbol of the ram or sheep

Drummond also hypothesizes that most number references in ancient texts were coded to hide their real value by multiples of 1,000. For example, in the Old Testament Joshua commanded 30,000 men, and he slew 12,000 inhabitants of the city of Ai. The historian Berosus stated the Babylonians commenced astronomical observations 49,000 years (7 × 7 x 1000) before Alexander the Great. Most early references were related to 7 (Sun, Moon, and five visible planets), 12 (number of zodiacal signs and months per year), 30 (degrees per sign of the zodiac), and higher combinations of these numbers and other numbers associated with astronomical observations and astrology.

The problem of understanding the exact nature of ancient astrology is that it was only partly documented, leaving the question of the extent of their undocumented astrological knowledge. Michael Baigent in From the Omens of Babylon: Astrology and Ancient Mesopotamia suggests that there is evidence that there was probably an older or parallel oral tradition of astrology at the time of publication of Enuma Anu Enlil believed published over the period (1595–1157 BC). The ancient Mesopotamians believed that history repeated itself after a massive cycle of many years [4]


Heaven on Earth

The Biblical story is that heaven comes down to earth.  The disciples are taught to pray that God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven.   At the end of the Apocalypse the New Jerusalem descends out of heaven onto Earth.  Of course, this is a metaphor because it is a city built out of people.

From Genesis onward the creation points to the earth becoming a temple or sanctuary.  The word for “lights” in Genesis is the same word for “lamps” used in the wilderness tabernacle and they were given for signs and seasons (Heb. moed) denoting the religious festivals regulated by moon phases.  The garden of Eden is depicted as a sanctuary (temple) with an eastern entrance and cherubim guardians. The tree of life is depicted in the wilderness tabernacle as a light giving menorah with almond flowers and buds. The ox-faced-cherub in the tabernacle guards the Ark of the Covenant within the inner sanctuary.  The “sea” (washing laver) is supported by a base of twelve oxen.  We are told that Moses was shown the pattern of the tabernacle when he was on the mountain.  What was he shown?  He was shown the heavenly temple. The Zodiac constellations.   He was shown the cherubim with the eagle (Aquila) constellation, ox (Taurus) man (Water pourer) and the lion (Leo). He was shown the seven sisters or Pleiades (seven branched Menorah).  The tabernacle was arranged with an eastern entrance and the tribes were arranged around the tabernacle in the form of the Zodiac.  The message was clear, God was dwelling among his people Israel.  Heaven had come down to earth.   They were to be a Holy people and they were given a law to keep in the same way that Adam and Eve had been given a law (do not eat i.e., do not snatch at divinity).   However, Israel failed at this new beginning because it regarded the law as a manner of self-deification and failed to recognize that the law and its sacrifices pointed to a covering that only God could provide (as he did with Adam and Eve).

The Zodiac and constellations are linked with the tribal arrangement around the sanctuary. The arrangement of the tribes around the tabernacle is meant to signify that heaven has come down to earth with God dwelling amongst his people:  The Zodiac and the twelve tribes

And what then of the Balaam oracle when the King of Moab sought to hire the prophet to curse the nation of Israel when they were about to enter the land. The prophecy is concerned with the “latter days” –

“He shall pour the water out of his buckets, and his seed [Jacob’s] shall be in many waters, and his king shall be higher than Agag, and his kingdom shall be exalted”. (Numbers 24:7)














This is obviously a depiction of Aquarius the water pourer which sign we are about to transition into having left Pisces the fish (symbol of Christianity) and Aires (the Lamb or goat) and Taurus (the domesticated ox representing Israel under the law and the face on the cherubim ark).   The Milky Way is the celestial river.

In Numbers (24.14) and the “star out of Jacob” (24.17) is interpreted as a messianic reference. Note the words in v.19: “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?” (Num 23:19) This is very similar to Ezekiel 39:8; “this is the day whereof I have spoken”. It might be objected that Num 24:7 mentions Agag and not Gog, however, both the Septuagint (LXX) and the Samaritan Pentateuch (SP) have Gog in this prophecy.[5]


John makes it clear both in his Gospel (John 4.14) and in the Apocalypse that Jesus is the source of “living water”- the water emerges from the throne where God and the Lamb sit and what begins as a trickle becomes a roaring stream as his saints are sent into the world to heal the nations. This crystal-clear river has the tree of life situated on either side yielding twelve crops of fruit every month. The description is very similar to the prophecy of Balaam where the tents of Jacob are depicted as beautiful gardens and trees planted on the riverside (Num 24.16) a metaphor for the Milky Way – the celestial river of stars surrounded by the twelve zodiac constellations. “And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband” (Rev 21.2). It is an image of the “heavens” descending to earth and the bearing of fruit every month speaks of a constant repetition of the harvest festival of tabernacles.[6]

We have then a very complex cosmogony that depicts the old heaven and earth passing away and a new heaven an earth arriving.  The old order is destroyed, and God makes his dwelling place among men.

Appointing the Elohim

The numbers 70, 71 and 72 are found in many ancient mythologies denoting the sons of the “gods” usually 70 sons presided over by a high god and his consort.[7]  In Israel the 70 are demythologized and become the 70 judges (Elohim).  Together with Moses and Aaron they became the 72 Elohim.  They form the basis of the Sanhedrin (Greek, Seventy) in the time of Christ which together with the high priest equates to 71.  The MT has a table of nations in Genesis 10 with 70 races and the LXX version has 72. Chabad explain how the number 72 relates to the nations.     The Gospel of John uses the term “the Jews” in a pejorative sense 71 times to denote the high priest and Sanhedrin. When Jesus is challenged and accused of blasphemy in John 10, he responds with the divine council motif from Psalm 82[8]

“I have said, Ye are gods (elohim) ; and all of you are children of the most High.But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.  Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations”. (Psalm 82:6-8)  

Jesus’ argument is that unlike them his sonship is of a different order of magnitude similar to that of the angel in the wilderness who bore the Yahweh name and was superior to Moses and the Sanhedrin.

“Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him” (Exod 23:20-21).

The number 72 is therefore mythologically and typologically closely connected with the gentile nations and with the “gods”.  The intention was that the chosen nation (Israel) should rule the world, but they failed in their mission.  Randall points out that the Greek word for Truth has the value of 72.[9]  I found this particularly interesting in the light of Gal 2:14 where Paul admonishes Peter for withdrawing from eating with Gentiles:

"But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth (τὴν ἀλήθειαν) of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles(ἔθνη), and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?"

In this verse another form of the phrase the truth is used, and it has the value of 472 while Gentiles has the value of 72.[10]  Surprisingly (or perhaps not so surprising after all) the English word gentile late Middle English: from Latin gentilis ‘of a family or nation, of the same clan’ (used in the Vulgate to refer to non-Jews) also has a value of 72.[11]

When we realize that Covid 19 has an English ordinal value of 72 (53+19) and that the twelve letters of the furin cleavage site (ccucggcgggca) have an English ordinal value of 72 (as well as containing 5G) and this coupled with the Jewish “rule of 72” for calculating compound interest[12] we have the two attack vectors through which the 72 Jewish Elohim (=gods or rulers) hope to subject the “72 gentile” nations.


Finally, the number 72 and 71 have fascinating properties in relation to the year lengths and the Great Year:

72 x 360= 25,920

71 x 365 = 25,920

These numbers were chosen for their astrological and mythological-typical symbology.


The Heavenly Jerusalem

Do not fear the end of the age as something beautiful is about to emerge. In the end we all die, and our lives are but one degree, one day, in the Great Year of the cosmic clock.  It is not how you die but how you live that matters. Only a fool could deny the purpose behind such beauty and mathematical perfection.  We are heading for a Great Reset that much is certain, and it is also certain that certain elements know what is coming and are gaming it.  Do not fear as their victories will be hollow.  No matter how great their power it is puny in comparison.  They are about to see a display of real power.   Our magnetic shield is failing and the earth beneath our feet may crumble, and the earth may burn, but the Lord God is our shield and our exceeding great reward.

“Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward” (Genesis 15:1).

Our shield is not the shield of man (Red Shield = Rothschild/ red= adom/edom ). The wicked hide in their bunkers and hoard their riches but we make God our rock. Go forth in this new year and witness. The end is nigh.

“Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Spirit: Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained. (John 20:2-23)



[1] The modern measurement is 25,772 years but on this see the Randall Carlson clip taken from Ep075 Great Year Model of Cyclic Time & Periodic Disaster -Kosmographia: The Randall Carlson Podcast (1:31).  I prefer the measurement from antiquity as it was formulated over a much longer period. Also, Isaac Newton (1642 – 1726/27) determined the cause of precession and established the rate of precession at 1 degree per 72 years=25,920 years.

[2]  The 360-day calendar is interesting.  See Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/360-day_calendar   It seems to be an average of lunar and solar but that does not discount that the past may have had different year lengths.  The length of the day may have varied over the period of approx 26,000 years as the natural circadian rhythm of humans suggests variation of day length in the past. The solar year is currently 365.25 days hence leap years every four years.  However, if we use the rounded figures (no doubt determined by the ancients) and the precession calculated by Newton giving a cycle of 25,920 years (rather than the modern calculation of 25,772 years) then years of varying lengths between 360 days and 365 days gives the rate of precession at 1 degree at 72 years or at 71 years respectively.

[12] See: https://www.investopedia.com/ask/answers/what-is-the-rule-72/ The law in Deut 23:19 was not intended to be used against strangers who were dwelling among them. They were instructed to treat strangers and aliens with respect and reminded that they were once strangers in Egypt. Strangers were to be treated kindly (Deut 24:17-21) but it was OK to charge a foreigner (outside the land?) interest. This was not a license to swindle, steal, deceive and cheat. It was not an excuse for usury. Interest is not usury. They were meant to be a holy people not a nation of swindlers. Moreover, the seed of Abraham was to be a blessing to all nations (Genesis 12:3 …in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed) so gentiles would share the same covenant hope and no longer be aliens or strangers.
