Financial Vipers of Venice: Alchemical Money, Magical Physics, and Banking in the Middle Ages and Renaissance
Financial Vipers of Venice
Alchemical Money, Magical Physics, and Banking in the Middle Ages and Renaissance
by Joseph Farrell
In Babylon’s Banksters, Joseph Farrell dug up an ancient international class of bullion brokers, their penetration of the ancient temples, their control and suppression of an ancient knowledge and their strategy for usurping the money-issuing power of states and nations. Financial Vipers of Venice is the sequel to that ancient tale where we fast forward to medieval times, in the midst of a 1500-year story of a foggy swamp that became the financial center of the Western World.
Mr. Farrell approaches his books like expanded essays, and structures his contents in clearly delineated outline form. This is fortunate for the reader trying to keep pace with the weaving complexities of Farrell’s narrative. And there certainly is a narrative … only it’s delivered with all the twists and turns of a Tarantino movie.
“To sum up, thus far Bruno has accomplished the following…Subtly challenged the Calvinist doctrine of debt-interest in the hands of a private monopoly by distinguishing it from the ‘the public wealth,’ which is, in the final analysis, a not-so-subtle attack on the very idea of private monopoly central banking, that is, upon the banking practices of the northern Italian city-states, Florence and Venice, themselves.”
Our tale begins with Giordano Bruno, a 16th century Hermeticist who was executed by the Inquisition thanks in no small part to the complicity of the Venetian oligarchy. Mr. Farrell asks why. What motivated members of the Venetian elite — who had previously welcomed him in their homes — to hand over Bruno to the Inquisition and denounce him?
The answers Mr. Farrell uncovers reach into the heart of what differentiates Hermeticism — an ancient universal spirituality with roots in ancient Egypt — from the monotheistic religions that sprung up centuries later. Mr. Bruno reportedly had a vision of uniting the whole world under one single spirituality — Hermeticism — in which we are all connected to an infinite divinity — a philosophy of abundance. This vision stood in stark contrast to the debt-based philosophy of monotheism’s “original sin,” a debt which is impossible to repay.
Clearly, Mr. Bruno intended to upset the religious applecart which Mr. Farrell contends was a direct philosophical threat to the time’s dominant fiscal philosophy — a philosophy belonging to the elite oligarchy of medieval Venice.
“…for not only did these [Babylonian] slaves bring with them their religion and culture — a point that would explain the increasing ‘orientalization’ of the Roman imperium — but they also brought with them ‘their “Babylonian” business and banking practices.’ And of course, when Attila the Hun ravaged the peninsula and threatened even Rome itself, many of these mercantile families fled to northern Italy. It is here that we find, then, the connection between ancient Babylon’s ‘bullion brokers,’ Roma, and the later Italian city-states, with their banking oligarchies.”
Mr. Farrell engagingly paints a picture of medieval Venice ruled by an oligarchical elite, a network of families and familial relations that even then, spanned the centuries. Members of this elite network played influential roles in all parts of Venetian society — from political and military leaders to heads of banking and business. The tactics that Mr. Farrell illuminates bear a striking resemblance to the playbook of today’s oligarchy.
For instance, in describing one of the Venetian super-companies, Mr. Farrell states:
“A glance — and it can only be a glance — at the rise of the Peruzzi company will demonstrate just how quickly the medieval super-companies mastered all the techniques that many would now ascribe to the conspiratorial machinations of modern banksters, corporations, and groups like the Bilderbergers, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and so on.”
Clearly, the oligarchy rigs the game in favor of those within its circles, as the rise of the Venetian super-companies demonstrate. This was done by spreading into society, almost like a cancer.
“The penetration into the loci of public power — the church, professional occupations, military, and the organs of domestic and international politics — became the ‘playbook’ for financial elites ever after, and…the Venetians perfected this strategy to a very fine art.”
“Maintain careful posture of public neutrality in cases of political conflict, while continuing to act as financial agents for both sides.”
An Unbroken Story
Mr. Farrell outlines certain tactics of the medieval Venetian oligarchy which we find in eerie continuance by today’s 21st century global oligarchy. Using balance-of-power diplomacy to play both sides of a battle; absorb philosophical rivals; suppress hidden knowledge; and on. The continuity of strategy is certainly no passing matter.
“Consequently, one sees two familiar patterns — first appearing in ancient times, and continuing into modern times — of a financial elite that is actively seeking ancient sources of information, and seeking to monopolize and suppress it, lest that knowledge break out of the closed system of finance that made their power, position, and prestige, possible.”
Is it possible that there is an unbroken story that weaves through what we know of ancient Babylon, medieval Venice and our modern New World Oligarchy? Is there an ancient wisdom that has been suppressed this whole time, a wisdom that by its very suppression has allowed a small network of families to maintain control over humanity throughout recorded history?
The idea is definitely tantalizing and logical, at the least. Personally I think this idea holds a lot of weight. Though perhaps we’ll never truly be able to say whether it is or isn’t fact — simply because the genealogical and financial records to prove the theory likely no longer exist. Nevertheless, the Hermetic wisdom that Giordano Bruno tried to spread is likely no small matter. And for that, the Inquisition burned him.
It might be worth considering that if methods of empire are similar between today’s oligarchy and the oligarchy of Mr. Bruno’s time, then perhaps the two share in common methods of enforcing their control as well.
The Lost Continent of Mu
by James Churchward
(Adventures Unlimited Press)
Putting together the prehistoric story of ancient humankind is a daunting task and in The Lost Continent of Mu, James Churchward may very well have a number of pieces of this garbled puzzle. Although this 1926 book is perhaps not quite flawless, the story of James Churchward and how he came to believe he possessed the lost narrative of humankind is a fascinating tale in and of itself. Mr. Churchward was a world traveler, explorer and researcher. While stationed in India, he claims to have been taught to read humankind’s first and original language — symbol-based texts from prehistoric tablets that today are either lost or remain hidden.
After reading The Lost Continent of Mu, it seems that the spirit of Mr. Churchward’s investigation is certainly true and the overarching scope of humankind’s ancient tale weaved by Mr. Churchward does make perfect sense in today’s burgeoning paradigm. Mr. Churchward gives additional good reason to seriously consider that an ancient continent once existed in the Pacific Ocean (the remnants of which are the dotted islands currently scattered across the waters) and that humankind — or at least one branch of humankind — can trace its origins to this fabled land.
Author and prehistory expert David Hatcher Childress penned the introduction to The Lost Continent of Mu, and his telling of the Churchward story is equally as intriguing as the contents of the book itself. Mr. Churchward’s life path was quite a journey.
In 1868, at the age of 18, Mr. Churchward was sent to India as part of the British military where he eventually rose to the rank of Colonel — and during which time he befriended a Hindu rishi. Over the course of a 12-year friendship, this Hindu priest…
“…gave Churchward access to some very rare and mystical ancient tablets which had purportedly been hidden in the temple vaults for thousands of years. The tablets were carved with arcane symbols, and the rishi began teaching Churchward how to interpret some of the simpler signs. Churchward proved an avid student, and the lessons continued until eventually Churchward had mastered the language — supposed to be the original language of Mankind!” (p. ii)
This language was the language of the continent of Mu, the fabled motherland of humanity. It was a language of symbols that, as Mr. Churchward contends, went on to influence the hieroglyphic scripts of the Pacific Island cultures, the Maya, the ancient Egyptians as well as the cultures of Central Asia and India, among others. After retiring from the military in 1880, Churchward spent the next 8 years, traveling around the Pacific, Asia and Australia interpreting ancient documents in light of his knowledge of the lost language of Mu and looking for evidence of ancient cataclysms that would lend credence to his belief that a continent once existed in the Pacific.
In 1888, Mr. Churchward settled in New York and, armed with his documents, photographs and personal paintings collected during his world travels, he eventually put to paper what he had learned. The result, in 1926, was The Lost Continent of Mu, a classic work that has never been out of print.
The Old Master
The linchpin to Mr. Churchward’s work is the initial relationship he forged with the Indian rishi, a man who Mr. Churchward refers to as “Master.” During a lecture given before the American Society for Psychical Research on April 20, 1931, Mr. Churchward referred to the Indian rishi thusly:
“This priest was a great Master, the most proficient Master that has lived since the time of Jesus…
“…Many do not know the actual meaning of Master. In olden times this title was bestowed on those who had Mastered the Cosmic Sciences and Learnt how to control the Cosmic Forces, and had brought his material body under the absolute control of his inner self.
“This old Master and his two cousins…were the sole survivors of the Naacal Brotherhood which had existed for 70,000 years. This Brotherhood had been formed in the Motherland, when experts of religion and the Cosmic Sciences were being sent from Mu to her various colonies.” (p. xi-xii)
If Mr. Churchward indeed had direct interaction with a Master, as described above, during his eight years stationed in India, then that alone is an amazing story — one that I hope to find written about in more detail elsewhere.
Nevertheless, it is no doubt that when Mr. Churchward left India in 1880, he did so with a mission — to find real world evidence to substantiate what he learned from the Indian Master.
According to Mr. Churchward, Mu was the biblical Garden of Eden. It was the advent of humanity on planet Earth, the continent where humanity was born and the root from which humanity spread across the globe. Mr. Churchward interprets ancient documents in light of this perspective — documents like the Mayan Troano Codex, the Tibetan Lhasa Codex, the Egyptian Book of the Dead, as well as the Naacal Tablets (the secret tablets shown to him by the rishi during his time in India).
According to Mr. Churchward, ancient documents and inscriptions of Central and South America talk about a “Land to the West” that was swallowed by the waters. He finds consistency in the ancient symbology of lands on both sides of the Pacific, suggesting a pre-historic link that connected Southeast Asia, Australia, the Pacific Islands and the Americas. This consistency among symbols found in ancient sites and texts from around the globe suggests a singular source, and Mr. Churchward provides abundant evidence in support.
So is Mr. Churchward correct?
I am certainly not qualified enough in the study of ancient symbology to make a judgment on Mr. Churchward’s conclusions. Nevertheless, his approach to the subject is irreproachable. Symbology is the road to take. If indeed there is a singular seed to humanity’s tree, then it probably begins at the point where all of the ancient symbols meet.
The Sirian Revelations Trilogy
by Patricia Cori
Patricia Cori is a clairvoyant who has been involved in the New Age movement since the early 70s. According to Ms. Cori, the three books that constitute The Sirian Revelations Trilogy (1. Cosmos of Soul; 2. Atlantis Rising; and 3. No More Secrets, No More Lies) are the product of communications from entities who refer to themselves as the Speakers of the Sirian High Council, sixth dimension beings from within the Sirius star system. If these writings are true, the Sirians have been involved with humanity’s story since our inception (this idea is consistent with Drunvalo Melchizedek’s claim that the Sirians are the paternal side of our ET lineage).
I first read these books a couple of years ago and I rapidly devoured the whole trilogy because the books are brimming with information that seems to make sense of the puzzle pieces of our burgeoning modern paradigm in a simple, yet spiritually eloquent way. Or perhaps I was simply being fed the information that I wanted to read. Perhaps this was instead a brilliant work of fiction that elegantly weaves together the various strands of our contemporary alternative mythos of global conspiracies, alien agendas and multidimensional realities.
I’ve now re-read the trilogy with a bit more of a refined perspective, and though these books may truthfully be transmissions from wise ethereal beings, my second reading of the books has left me with a question or two which we’ll explore during the course of this review.
* * * * *
“We, the human race, are capable of receiving and transmitting thoughts on many levels and we have the ability to transform those impulses into words.” (px, Cosmos)
Let’s first discuss the manner in which Ms. Cori began receiving the Sirian transmissions, because the story of how this began is either a classic example of how the ethereal realms mingle with the physical to produce synchronistic events, or a classic fictional tale.
For Ms. Cori, it all began with a dream — a dream that she had of a crop circle. Subsequently, while in a bookstore during a trip to England, she would see a photo of the exact same crop circle from her dream. It turned out that circle was England’s latest crop formation, so naturally Ms. Cori was drawn to it. While meditating within the circle, Ms. Cori ended up in an hour-long trance state during which she claims she was activated. Weeks later, she began receiving transmissions from the Sirian High Council.
Every morning around 4 a.m., Ms. Cori would awake…
“…to a strange sound — like static running through my head — as if a radio station were being tuned in the base of my brain…In a trance-like state, I went into my studio, switched on the Mac, and watched in amazement as my fingers began to tap out a message through the keys of the computer. A channel, it appeared, had literally been blasted open!” (pxvi-xvii, Atlantis)
After one year of transmissions, Ms. Cori’s first book in the trilogy, Cosmos of Soul, was born.
“[Patricia], a conscious energy being, does not simply perform as a robot, bringing our rhetoric through her fingertips and into her computer. A consciousness unit, she experiences our thoughts in a form of telepathic synergy; she sees images as we transmit those waves across the screen of her third-eye vision, and then, as a physical being of your realm, condenses into words that which is our intended meaning.” (p186, Cosmos)
Skeptics may naturally find Ms. Cori’s story preposterous. For many, existence beyond the physical is something that the head does not easily wrap around. That’s understandable. Most all of us have lived in that world — a world where the scaffolding of one’s belief structure forms the skeleton upon which one’s reality is clothed. It seems, however, that expanding waves of people are growing beyond that perspective — including myself. Not too long ago, I sought some sort of validation for the mystery of channeling, and I was fortunate enough to have a series of connections fall into place whereby I was introduced to a gifted woman named Mary Beth Murphy who left no doubt in my mind that communication between worlds exists.
Receiving telepathic transmissions from realms beyond the physical seems more than likely a reality. Something as everyday as inspiration may very well be the result of forces we have yet to completely understand. Even still we must approach the topic with discernment because these transmissions do not arrive in the form of language. They arrive as thought forms, metaphors and feelings that the channel then interprets into language. So no matter if every aspect of Ms. Cori’s tale is true, the transmissions that became the Sirian Revelations Trilogy have been filtered and interpreted through Ms. Cori.
Nevertheless, I am approaching The Sirian Revelations Trilogy with an open mind. Truth is, our libraries are rife with anecdotal evidence of thought-to-thought communication between human beings (Human Devolution, Mind Reach, Holographic Universe, etc.). And it seems to be that we are descended from beings who communicated telepathically. Perhaps the reason we have found no record of a written language prior to the ancient Mesopotamian civilizations is because prior to the fall of Atlantis, beings that communicated telepathically had no need for language. So perhaps it isn’t all that far fetched to imagine that Ms. Cori has received telepathic communications from non-human entities. Perhaps telepathic communication is actually the universal norm, while language is more of a stepping stone for the less evolved.
“If you are skeptical, as was I, of channeled transmissions from other worlds and dimensions, remember: what is important here is the message, not the messenger.” (pxi-xii, Cosmos)
The message of the Sirian High Council is clear. Humanity has lost its connection to its mother, Gaia. We have lost connection with one another. We are polluting ourselves and everything around us. A secret government lords over us weaving an ever-tightening net around the planet, stitching together a mind control prison that we cannot see. And yet this whole time, humanity was “designed to be the greatest of all intelligent life forms in the material universe, to master 3D like no other species had ever done before.” (p216-217, Cosmos)
* * * * *
“You are sparks from the flame, fragments of the Absolute, choosing to exercise free will in your descent into matter again and again – gods in your own right. As conscious beings, you experience and learn the alchemy of transcending matter and returning to spirit, the true purpose of the ascent along the evolutionary spiral towards illumination.” (p4, Cosmos)
Who We Are
The spiritual philosophy inherent in the Sirian Revelations Trilogy is a sophisticated, coherent and consistent understanding of who we are and how we fit into the greater Cosmos. It is clear that no matter where the source of these books’ voice resides, the perspective originates from someone or someones who see the whole of Earth, the whole of humanity, and even the whole of the Cosmos as a single consciousness, one being, a singular story with interweaving strata. The tone in these books is that of an outsider looking in.
“Think of the magnitude of what we are asking you to envisage: the evolving soul consciousness of Universal Being leaving its physical body through the tunnels of its astral chords to journey to other dimensions, other universes, other states of consciousness. Would this immense hypothesis not appear just as immeasurable and unimaginable to the consciousness of an atom of one of your cells, were we to describe to it your own astral voyages?” (p47-48, Cosmos)
We are being asked to consider the astral voyages of Universal Being (or what we might refer to as God) from the perspective of a cell attempting to understand the astral voyage of the being in which it exists. This fractal description of spiritual reality is an example of the pivotal axiom of humanity’s Hermetic heritage, As Above, So Below.
Another example of this Hermetic axiom is seen in the following concise summary of a significant aspect of the consciousnesses of the ancient Egyptian, indigenous American and Tibetan consciousness:
“It is the surrendering — the dissolution of matter as it transmutes into light — that is the key to the meaning of life on all dimensional levels. Many of your more spiritually advanced cultures, such as those of the Tibetan Priesthood of Maya, and the Native Americans, prepared for the death process from the first moments of their ‘I am’ awareness. Rather than fearing death, they explored and trained for it, so that the passing would be familiar, when time called them back through the tunnel — the metaphysical reflection of the tunnel of life known to you as the birth canal.
“It is the mirror, the identical process, only that the returning to the light is much less traumatic than the coming into matter. The death canal.” (p84, Cosmos)
Just as every consciousness we encounter is a reflection of ourselves, our very existence in the physical realm is a reflection of the astral realms — and the journeys between these realms are also reflections of each other. As Above, So Below.
Have we achieved scientific proof for the skeptics that these books are the transmissions of sixth-dimensional beings from the star system Sirius? No. But the spiritual description of the way in which our consciousness, our essence, weaves into the greater fabric of the Cosmos is rich, vivid, logical and spot on.
* * * * *
“We have previously confirmed to you that the Government has indeed sold you out for the acquisition of tremendously powerful technologies — those that are now emerging as cutting-edge military weaponry and mind-control devices.
“In exchange, their E.T. allies, operating in the earth zone for decades, have been allowed to perform experiments into human and animal biology, forcibly taking specimens from unwilling abductees for their seed and the potential of their latent DNA composition; many of those incidents, we confirm, have been conducted by the Zeta Reticulans, who are presently working alongside of the Secret Government.
“Contracts do exist between them … and you, the human race, were written into the terms of agreement!
“Other abduction encounters, in which human victims are heavily drugged and forced to play out the terrifying scenes of alien manipulation, have been conducted by government operatives themselves. Indeed, the majority of all abduction encounters is part of a carefully planned campaign of the Secret Government, which wishes to raise the pitch of your terror to such a peak that you will be literally scared out of your rational minds when the first ships make open contact with the massive earth population.” (p281, No More Secrets)
The World Management Team
On page 2 of the first book in the trilogy, Cosmos of Soul, we get thrown head first into a paradigm in which a Secret Government that operates from the shadows made an alliance long ago with alien intelligence. This is an idea that, to most, immediately smacks of fiction. Understandably so. Although the story does fit, I’ve never run across any convincing evidence of this alliance. The current popular myth seems to be something along the lines of this: Sometime during the Eisenhower administration, representatives of the Greys landed at an American military base and struck a deal with the American government to provide alien technology in exchange for the right to abduct Americans, subject them to genetic experimentation and to mutilate cows. It’s interesting. Not entirely implausible. But it sounds more like a 1960’s version of interstellar exchange. Sort of like, “Take me to your leader.”
Such is not the way that Ms. Cori and the Sirian High Council propose this relationship operates between the Secret Government and the alien intelligence. From the Sirian perspective, this World Management Team traces its roots to the Annunaki — the race of ETs from the planet Marduk/Nebiru made famous through Zecharia Sitchin’s translation of the ancient Sumerian writings. From the time of humanity’s first seeding on planet Earth, some 100,000 years ago (according to the timeline given in Atlantis Rising), the Annunaki have affected their influence upon our species in periods that correspond to Nebiru’s 3,600-year orbit around our Sun and the star within the Sirius constellation from which it was first ejected. This trilogy asserts that to this day, the World Management Team is guided by the efforts of the Annunaki, and that ultimately — through fear vibrations, war, HAARP and the like — the goal is to entrain Earth in a low vibrational resonance with Nebiru that will pull Nebiru into orbit with the Sun and consequently pull Nebiru along with the Earth into the astral chords — the tunnel, the birth canal — through which the Earth will inevitably pass during its mutation from third-density into fourth.
This is a fantastic story and it doesn’t contradict a single thing within our modern mythos. In fact it adds a great amount of detail to the story currently being formed by TV shows like the History Channel’s “Ancient Aliens.”
But from my own perspective, I am far from convinced of the Annunaki story. In fact, the term “Annunaki” now draws a red flag from me whenever I see it. First of all, from what I know, Zecharia Sitchin is the only source from which we have our story of the Annunaki, and it seems that we are building quite a tale from one man’s translations of these ancient texts. I am not yet convinced that at the outset of humanity’s existence, as this trilogy contends, the Annunaki found the first humans on Earth, became jealous that “their” planet Earth had been bequeathed to this new race of light beings (humans), and thereby disconnected ten of our twelve DNA strands, leaving us just enough genetic material to survive and be controlled. I’m just not convinced of this.
Nevertheless, I am certainly not dismissing the Secret Government or World Management Team as myth. The Conspiracy is readily apparent — almost comically obvious. Its connection to the realms beyond the physical is an almost certainty since this cabal has, since time immemorial, hoarded an ancient wisdom that is rooted in that very same connection — wisdom that pre-dates our ancient history, wisdom that likely, even, pre-dates our written languages. This is a wisdom beyond the ancient library of Alexandria, beyond Plato and Pythagoras and beyond the high priests of ancient Egypt. It is a wisdom that can likely be traced to Atlantis and which was carried through the cataclysm by ascended masters like Thoth (Hermes), as well as the wisdom keepers of the Tibetans, the Hopi and Maya (three cultures who claim direct lineage to the survivors of Atlantis). It’s quite possible that if we were to open to the public the Vatican’s library (perhaps the sole of antiquity’s libraries that never burned), we’d find many ancient texts to shed a greater light on who we are.
* * * * *
“The monumental cataclysm known to you as the ‘Great Flood’ was your celestial body’s process of cleansing the poisonous energies and altered frequencies emanating from Atlantean control towers and underground energy networks in the final hours. It was Gaia’s reaction to the discordant vibrations that radiated from these centers — high into the outer layers of the ionosphere, far across the ley lines of your planet and deep within — disrupting the harmonics of all life at every point of the planet and out into space. They had to be released from Earth’s auric field and healed at the core level.” (p33-34, Atlantis)
In Ms. Cori’s second book of the Sirian Revelations Trilogy, Atlantis Rising, the story of Atlantis is vividly detailed. Atlantis was a psychic culture illuminated by crystal mindlight generators that were powered by a collective consciousness. It was a culture that was balanced and rooted in the sacred feminine, but which eventually lost that balance when Annunaki influence appealed to the controlling and power-hungry male energy. A dark side of the priesthood arose, enamored by technology and hierarchy. The Annunaki used the Atlanteans to develop technology that would help entrain Earth’s frequency to that of Nebiru, in order to draw the wandering planet into a natural orbit around the Sun.
But the entrainment upset Earth’s electromagnetic balance, and the planet reacted violently.
“… the Last Generation was confronted with the destructive force of its technology, which became the controlling weapon of the power elite. The Priesthood, Keepers of the Sirian records of universal mind, frequency, and cosmometry, eventually succumbed to the extreme polarity of Earth’s fields. Those who chose the dark side were fueled by aggressive extra-planetary entities to take power, and those same energies are ever-present in the theater of life upon your planet.
“To feed the hunger of the few, the glory of one of the most expansive civilizations in Earth’s history was washed up in the waves in a moment … the blinking of an eye. With it, most of the living creatures that colored your plains and highlands were either swept away in raging seas, or immortalized in the deep freeze of higher ground, where the snows pounded down upon them, obliterating their very existence.” (p12, Atlantis)
Atlantis Rising paints a detailed portrait of Atlantean life, as well as a vivid picture of that culture’s last days under the influence of Annunaki involvement. Of course, it’s impossible to confirm this story, but the lessons of the Atlanteans bear a striking resemblance to the issues we’re up against today.
* * * * *
“Despite the waves of Light Ones who had retrograded back into physical reality, our Elders realized that the balance was completely upset in your universe, that the light was dimming, and that there were far too few incarnate lightworkers to dramatically alter the vibrational pattern that was forming in three-dimensional space and reestablish the balance. It appeared that, without divine assistance, the realm you know as the universe would sink into abysmal darkness — and finally reach extinction.” (p22, No More Secrets)
Our History Is The Secret
The fundamental mystery of the human enigma is a mixture between who we are and where we came from. Both topics, I’m certain, are weaved within stories that span multiple layers of existence — from the physical to the multi-dimensional.
In regards to the story of our physical existence, Ms. Cori’s third book in the Sirian trilogy, No More Secrets No More Lies, fills in a number of blanks as to the genesis of humanity. And the story is a Tolkein-quality tale.
In the final book of the trilogy, Ms. Cori (or, the Sirian High Council) reveals that humanity was created to save physical reality from its then-present course of succumbing to the expanding energies of the dark side. The universe was facing extinction.
“A Council was formed of Angel Warriors, Andromedans, Ascended Masters, luminaries from the seventh, eighth, and ninth dimensions, Sirian Elders, and Pleiadian Light Emissaries to determine the most effective way to serve the light in those realms. They were circumspect, for they knew that, by intervening, they would be altering the karma of entire civilizations, forever tethered in the dynamics of material space. Together, they gave birth to the idea of seeding a super race of light beings who would go on to serve as monitors of the material universe — the New Sentinels of Light.
“That, Dear Ones, was your destiny.” (p23, No More Secrets)
* * * * *
I could go on for days about where Ms. Cori and the Sirian High Council are spot on — understanding that evolution is spiral, nailing the cabal, identifying that UFOs utilize the merkaba principle and other pearls of wisdom (“…thought defies the speed of light and it is only when it slows to that velocity that matter is potentiated.” [p42, Cosmos]), etc. The tales of Atlantis and about the dawn of our history on Earth are fascinating, and they’re not really in contradiction with what could be possible.
And while the inclusion of the Annunaki makes me raise my eyebrows, the prediction these books made for our sun makes me seriously ask questions. According to the books, it seems that our sun should have gone into its red giant phase in December 2012, and sometime after we should have only been left with a white dwarf.
“The collapse of your star, your Solar Deity, has begun and the process of moving through the astral chords of the black tunnel and into the light is about to take place. This is the galactic scenario of 2012.” (p99, Cosmos) “The sun has entered its most intense phase of transformation now…At the time of this transmission, it is accelerating with a rapidity that will soon exceed anything your scientists can monitor or record in logical and technical terminology… Let us assure you that what is being observed as ‘intense solar activity’ now is but a fizzle compared to what is going to occur at the closing of your calendar years 2012” (p149-151, Atlantis) “… in the galactic quadrant where your Sun has held resonance until now, only the dwarf star will remain.” (p268, No More Secrets)
* * * * *
On the one hand, it’s altogether possible that the brilliant mythos Patricia Cori paints through the course of the Sirian Revelations Trilogy is all just a product of her own imagination — an imagination, mind you, that manages to fit an impressive number of puzzle pieces from our current paradigm into a meaningful and coherent background story of the world today, and placing that world in a much larger cosmology. From the government’s secret underground bases and the technology of Tesla to the industrial assault on natural produce and a deeply vivid spiritual understanding of our multidimensional cosmos, Ms. Cori, if she is indeed the true author, has produced an elegant work of fiction that faithfully details the current zeitgeist of humanity.
On the other hand, it’s also plausible that these writings are the result of true telepathic communication between Ms. Cori and the Sirian High Council. And if they are, perhaps there are areas of these texts that are to be read metaphorically — like our biblical texts of old. Perhaps we’ve always been given our myths in these ways. Perhaps there is a relation worth exploring between the Sirians and the voices behind our biblical religions.
Regardless of the source, however, there is a lot of wisdom in Ms. Cori’s vibrant writings.
Edgar Cayce’s Tales of Ancient Egypt
by John Van Auken
Students of esoterica know that the history of humanity stretches far beyond the 6,000 years of common knowledge. Beyond the dynastic period of ancient Egypt, beyond Babylon and Sumeria – most likely to the sunken continents of Atlantis and Lemuria. And it’s likely that the seeds of who we are that were sown so long ago originated from beyond this planet.
Edgar Cayce’s Tales of Ancient Egypt, as interpreted and related by Cayce scholar John Van Auken, takes us to the period of ancient Egypt’s birth and paints an in-depth portrait of the spiritual and political side of its origins.
The Men Behind the Book
John Van Auken has been studying Cayce’s voluminous readings for the past 40 years, specializing in the ancient mysteries and lost civilizations. Auken is also a director at Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.). Auken has also written From Karma to Grace (a book on spiritual living based on Cayce’s readings) and Edgar Cayce and the Kabbalah. Cayce’s readings, which were transcribed while Cayce was in a trance state accessing the Akashic Records, are often filled with archaic and confusing language. Cayce’s readings are usually not easily understood. Having a Cayce scholar like Auken who is not only well-versed in Cayce’s readings but also the ancient civilizations about which Cayce speaks makes Auken an invaluable resource in making sense of Cayce’s readings – which may very well be some of the most important, if not entirely prophetic, body of work of the last 100 years.
Edgar Cayce grew up a simple, rural man who lived in the late 19th and early 20th Century. He became well known as the “sleeping prophet” for his ability to fall into a trance state and access information from a higher dimensional state. During his trances, he gave medical information to those who were sick, giving them the information necessary to heal. He gave information to oil prospectors that helped them determine where to drill. Because his readings were so accurate and because he had such success, particularly in healing the sick, Cayce became one of the world’s most renowned psychics. During Cayce’s readings, his wife was the intermediary between the clients and Cayce. She asked the questions on the client’s behalf. Starting in 1923, Cayce hired a secretary who began transcribing his readings. Today, 14,000 of Cayce’s readings are stored and available at the A.R.E. in Virginia Beach (as well as online and on disc).
Among Cayce’s most interesting readings are those involving spirituality, Atlantis and ancient mysteries.
Tales of Ancient Egypt
The book begins with the story of how ancient Egypt was first populated by Nubians, then peacefully “invaded” by 900 survivors of the Atlantean destruction who descended from a mountainous region of Turkey and met with a population that was well taken care of by the river Nile and preferred to make a peaceful co-existence with the newcomers. The high priest of the Atlanteans was Ra-Ta, a previous incarnation of Cayce’s.
The destruction of Atlantis signaled the end of humanity’s First Creation and the beginning of the Second Creation. The planet was nearly wiped clean of humans and the mission in those days was to repopulate the planet. Many in these ancient times still retained the Law of One philosophy of our ancestors – the idea that we are a single consciousness having individual experiences as we evolve our way back to Source. But as is also foretold by the Hindu Yuga cycle, humanity was falling into a period of extreme duality. Good and evil. Our Law of One-ness would be replaced by division, separateness, other-ness, us-versus-them. (We are now coming out of this period as the veil over the truth of who we are is being lifted.)
Auken goes on to tell Cayce’s tales of the more important figures in Egypt’s pre-Dynastic era, often intertwining Egyptian gods into the story.
Auken mentions that the character of Hermes-Thoth is a difficult one to pinpoint in history – and he is right on. Thoth is an extremely confusing character – appearing in Egypt as Thoth, in Greece as Hermes and in Rome as Mercury. Auken notes that Thoth has been identified at times as Enoch. And apparently one Cayce reading identifies Thoth as a prior incarnation of Jesus. All very confusing indeed. But one consistency I’ve found is that Cayce identifies Thoth as the builder of the Great Pyramid. Drunvalo Melchizedek also claims this is so.
The first half of Tales details the lives of a number of pre-Dynastic characters – like Ra-Ta and others who surrounded him (and who reincarnated with Edgar Cayce to be his close friends, family and wife). The second half of the book delves into Cayce’s readings that deal with some of the mysteries of ancient Egypt. These subjects deal with ancient flight and caches of prehistoric records buried near the Sphinx on the Giza Plateau as well as prophecies that were built into the physical character of the Great Pyramid. Equally as fascinating is Cayce’s tales of where Jesus spent his so-called missing years – studying in India and training for higher states of consciousness within the Great Pyramid.
The Three Chambers
Auken does a noble job of making sense of a period of human history that is shrouded in mystery. But perhaps one day will come when we will know beyond a shadow of a doubt what our true history and heritage is.
A most curious piece of information in the Cayce collection of psychic discourses is his claim that there are three hidden chambers on this planet containing stone tablets upon which Atlanteans wrote a prehistoric story of a time when human spirits began to enter material bodies. He said that the stone tablets document millions of years of semi-physical activity in the mythological lands of Mu, Lemuria, Atlantis, Og, Oz, Zu and others. The stones tell of a time when the life forces of the godlings of the Creator were attempting to manifest themselves in this three-dimensional world from multidimensional realms beyond our normal perception. These ancient beings retained their immortality and projected into matter from out of what we would consider to be pure energy or spirit. They were soul-minds and could push their consciousness into matter or withdraw into higher dimensions at will …
According to Cayce, the three record chambers containing these ancient stone recorders are located in three separate locations on the planet. One is under the waters near the Bahamian island of Bimini near the Gulf Stream in a sunken Atlantean temple. Another is underground near the Sphinx in Giza, Egypt. The third is beneath an over-hanging temple in the Mayan lands …
Cayce stated, “as time draws nigh when changes are to come about, there may be the opening of those three places where the records are one, to those that are the initiates in the knowledge of the One God …”
We are aspects of that One God.
