A brief history
The Origins of the Gods of Atlantis. The Religion of the World Axis, the Pole Cult that developed into the religion of the Pillar, the megalithic pillars all over the world, into the Sun Cult known by the Egyptians as being revered at Heliopolis, Baalbek being a Heliopolis too, created by Ptah (Hephaestus) the Creator of everything including the dome of the Primordial Mound. Hephaestus, he who seeded both Greeks and Egyptians, according to Plato. Zeus being a son of a Titan who came from the North, also had the same ancestors. The original inhabitants of Egypt may not have, but by the time of Menes it was introduced via migration from Sumeria (the Egyptians of ancient Egypt are a mixed race).
Hyperborea – Home of the ancient Indo-Europeans
Knowing that Atlas came from there as well as Apollo and then obviously Artemis and so Leto and the Buto cult, led me to more investigations. Following the Persians and Aryans back into prehistory we also come to areas around the Caspian Sea and references to lands like Hyperborea. What about the legends and stories of a sunny, green land in a perfect climate at the North Pole, what about how legends emerge about entering Inner Earth there, I doubt it means an actual different world inside our planet but a place to arrive at the Inner Self.
Arkaim | Russia’s Ancient City and the Arctic Origin of Civilization
The truth is that Arkaim was a troy town, so-called after the city in Asia Minor that the Greek king Agamemnon destroyed during the Trojan Wars. Built on the same circular principle as Troy, as described in Homer’s Iliad, but at least six hundred years older, Arkaim finds its prototype in Plato’s Atlantis with its three concentric circles of canals; in legendary Electris, the Hyperborean city some said was built under the Pole Star by the sea-god Poseidon; and in Asgard, the sacred city dedicated to the Norse god Odin that is described in the Icelandic saga, the Edda. All these legendary troy towns have the same circular ground plan. They have gone down in history as Neolithic Wisdom centres and the seats of ancient god-kings, and this undoubtedly throws light on the cultic function of Arkaim in its day, as we shall see.
In Russia’s more mystical quarters there is intense interest in the ancient town, seeing it as the city temple built by the legendary King Yuma, ruler of the Aryans in the “Golden Age”, which will once again becoming the centre of the world.
However, the discovery of the settlement has opened a historical aperture onto far more than the battles and conquests of an aggressive Indo-European people waged across Eurasia and south into the Mediterranean lands, where their war chariots shattered the peace of Old Europe. What the Land of Cities has revealed in its very structure and history is above all the still earlier past of the Ural-Altaic peoples – a past of such enormous antiquity that it presents more mysteries than it solves.
Built in the unique architectural mould of Nordic Asgard, the most sacred shrine of the Aesir of which the Prose Edda relates that “men call it Troy”, Arkaim may have been a shrine dedicated to the Aryan Sun religion, yet the roots of its dedication would have lain ultimately in the far older cult of the Pole star. Essentially, this was the religion of the shaman, the wizard, the medicine-man and other wonder-workers in touch with the spirits of nature.
The Babylonians believed in a mysterious paradise in “the far north” where a race of great sages lived; and the ancient Greeks too extolled a northern Elysium in which they believed the Hyperboreans, a wise, peaceful and long-lived race, lived in great splendor and prosperity. Even though Delphi was regarded as the centre of the Greek world, its god Apollo and his sister – the goddess Artemis, were acknowledged to be originally deities of this secret land far to the north, where stood the cosmic axle that the Greeks called Helice, “That Which Turns.” Many Greek historians as well as later scholars located this northern paradise in Scythia or the Altai, and as having its source in the shamanism that grew up around the semi-mythical magicians and pole-lords of Altai. But research and sacred tradition both suggest its origins go further back still to north – eastern Asia within the Arctic Circle, to a society that flourished on the shores of the Siberian Sea.
So, it speaks of the legendary Hyperborea with Apollo and Artemis having a prehistory even further North, a World Axis beginning…
Reading Timaeus again, Plato has actually described to us the story of Atlantis (it is in Timaeus’ narrative not in Socrates or Critias dialogue). And what about the Swastika, ancient as ancient can be, found in India and used by the Nazis, whom believed they were using it as an Aryan symbol, which indeed it was.
Thus the swastika, thought to be the exclusively Aryan symbol of sun-worship misappropriated by the Nazis and found depicted on many of the clay pots unearthed in Arkaim, is an older religious and metaphysical symbol than that attached to the Aryan Sun God, its roots lying in totemic shamanism. René Guénon, the eminent French esotericist, points out that the swastika, symbolizing eternal motion around a motionless centre, is a polar rather than a solar symbol, and as such was a symbol central to the Pole star cult, originally dedicated to a planetary deity connected to Ursa Major, the Great Bear. This centre, Guénon stresses, “constitutes the fixed point known symbolically to all traditions as the ‘pole’ or axis around which the world rotates…” The swastika is therefore known world-wide as the ‘sign of the pole.’
Only later did the Sun, as the centre of the revolving stellar system, replace the Pole Star as the supreme deity of the Pillar cult and lead to the elevation of the Sun God of the Indo-European peoples. It led to their greater intellectual development, to complex civilizations, to advanced arts and sciences and the transcendence of nature.
Troy towns like Electris – and like Arkaim – were built as stellar observatories. Their function was to unite earth to the starry cosmos above according to the principle of “as above so below” by means of a central axis symbolized by a stone pillar. Thus Diodorus Siculus of the first century BCE, quoting the historian Hecataeus, described the sanctuary of Electris as a troy town after the pattern of the spheres, by which he meant an astronomical design similar to that of Stonehenge and other ancient sun temples, in which the scheme of the heavenly spheres or astral shells surrounding the earth was represented diagrammatically by a series of concentric circles marked by walls, ditches or moats around a central pillar-stone.
These enclosed and heavily guarded sanctuaries sacred to the gods of the greater cosmos were inhabited only by initiated priests and their families, and were forbidden to the wandering nomads beyond the ramparts. The mystery to archaeologists is how such an advanced astronomical science can have been pursued at a time when hunter-gatherers still roamed the land. Colin Wilson, a highly accredited investigator, in answer takes us back to the Sumerians of ancient Mesopotamia. Sumer is regarded as the site of one of the first true civilizations in human history.
Wilson points out that the Sumerians were accomplished astronomers who had compiled tables of the motions of all the planets, including Uranus and Neptune, as early as five thousand years ago, long before the existence of Arkaim. He adds that according to the library of clay tablets compiled by the Assyrian King Assurbanipal (669 – 626 BCE) and unearthed during the nineteenth century, the Sumerians had also understood the precession of the equinoxes, and therefore knew about the zodiac.
Evidently Arkaim was a Wisdom Centre in a network of such Centres that once related all the prehistoric peoples of the earth to each other, under the spiritual aegis of the Pillar religion and its priestly elites. The remains of countless similar stone circles, menhirs and troy towns are scattered throughout Europe, the Americas, Eurasia and the Pacific lands, memorials to great crisscrossing migrations of peoples, all loyal to the same axial principle that relates earth to the heavens.
As I have said, various versions of the cult of the World Pillar as it spread around the world were once known from the Americas to northern Africa, where the blond Tamahu worshiped the Magna Mater and her spouse the Heaven-Bearer, as did their cousins in Brittany and Spain. In Hindu India the World Axis, Mt. Meru, ascended into the revolving heavens above through the centre of the three worlds, and in the Canary Islands the Cro-Magnon Guanches (now extinct) worshiped with sacrifices the god of the World Pillar whom they called “the God who Holds the Heavens”, and who thus prevented the collapse of the foundations of the world.
A remnant of this belief-system survives in the legend of Jacob’s Ladder in the Hebrew Book of Exodus, in which we learn that on this Ladder angels ascend and descend between heaven and earth.
Each race has considered a certain tree as symbolic of the World Pillar and therefore sacred. In the Voluspa, the song of the Old Norse prophetess, the tree on which the god Odin hung in order to receive the sacred runes was called Yggdrasil, the heaven-pole or world axis. The World Ash Yggdrasil was declared to be the greatest of all trees and the best; its limbs spread over the world and above the heavens, its shaft the pivot of the ever-revolving sky. At the foot of that tree the laws were first brought into being by the Aesir, the Norse gods, and Yggdrasil was worshiped as the source of all higher knowledge.
A prominent researcher on this subject says that in the text of the Sumerian Enuma Elish, clues to the purpose of Nippur were found in references to a “heavenward tall pillar reaching to the sky.”
In ancient Egypt, the land of the Hamitic peoples, the city of An or Anu which was renamed Heliopolis by the Greeks, originally meant Pillar City. As a commentator has pointed out, this fact may shed light on the mysterious Djed pillar, the “backbone of Osiris”, often associated with Heliopolis.
Who then were these mysterious Hyperboreans – or as we might perhaps better call them, these Elders, these early Masters of Wisdom who understood the importance of the World Axis? The records of most of the Bronze age nations have a legend that an unknown race of Elders gave us kingship and civilization and that they came from the gods and understood the most powerful secrets of our planet – secrets that have since been lost.
The Elders have been known as the Nephilim, the Sons of God, the Anunnaki, the Watchers and many other appellations; G. I. Gurdjieff spoke of them as agents of the divine Demiurge from a previous cycle of humanity. But beyond being credited with great wisdom and magical powers as well as having giant stature and extremely high craniums, little more is known about them. Did they really exist? All that can be said with certainty is that they remain a benign shadowy presence moving inscrutably in the background of virtually all the prehistoric traditions of our race.
The climate changed again around the ninth millennium BCE, which is widely regarded as the date of the demise of Atlantis and the enforced dispersal of its people both westward to Central America and eastwards to Europe. Bringing catastrophic earthquakes and coastal flooding to vast areas of the globe and a severe threat to the survival of our species, it was a racial crisis that brought another response from the senior race.
As a connection to Atlantis, the number 7 again, there are 7 steps in alchemy to creating the Philosopher’s stone, which I found an interesting parallel also to Plato, him being a philosopher.
The centre of the labyrinth is a place to achieve a ‘perfect state’, the inner self on a plane with spiritual immortality. The essence of life itself. What Plato is describing in Timaeus.
Labyrinths are linked to Mandalas – Sanskrit for ‘circle which contains the Essence’. Like mandalas, labyrinths are archetypal collective symbols that transcend all cultures because they are grounded in consciousness itself. The Boreans were the ‘Thracians’ so it’s pretty obvious where Hyperborea was. The north pole had seemed to be on the north side of the Carpathians until the Holocene.
There was an Aurignacian “kingdom” that survived unmolested in the Carpathian basin (Banat specifically).
Martial (Epigr. Lib. VIII. 78; Ibid. Epigr. VIII. 50), calls Domitian’s triumph over the Dacians “triumph over the Hyperboreans” and in another place “triumph over the Gigants”. In another epigram he celebrates in this way Domitian’s victories: “Three times he crossed the treacherous horns (the legendary arms) of the Sarmatic Ister; three times he bathed his sweaty horse in the snow of the Getae; and always modest, he refused the triumphs which he deserved and brought with him only the glory to have defeated the world of the Hyperboreans.” (Ibid, Epigr. Lib. IX. 102). The island of the Hyperboreans, as Hecateus tells us in one of his fragments, also had the name Helixoea.
In the Apollinic legends, near the pious Hyperboreans and north of the Greek zone, appears also the archaic Ocean, which plays such an important role in the Urano – Saturnian theogony. Hecateus Abderitas tells us that Apollo’s island from the region of the Hyperboreans, was in the parts of the Ocean.
The name Sibylla per Suidas is Latin. In fact it is proto-Latin. In prehistoric antiquity, when the art of divination had such an important role in public and private life, there were a number of famous Sibyls and they were known to classical times by the names of the various lands where they had originated. But none of these prophetic women originated in Greek lands. The Sibyls were inspired by a deep mystical religious feeling and this character was lacking to the Greek spirit. According to what Pausanias tells us (lib. X. 12. 1), the first Sibyls were at Delphi, at the renowned temple and oracle, founded there among the mountains, by the Hyperborean shepherds from north of the Lower Ister.
Sibylla Erythrea had not been the only one to represent the northern oracles in southern lands. A whole group of northern prophets were known in antiquity, like the Hyperborean shepherds, who founded the oracle of Delphi (Pausanias, lib. X. 5. 7), like Abaris the Hyperborean, who wrote a whole book of oracles known under the name of “Scythicae” (Suidas, ‘Abaris), and also like the anonymous founders of Apollo’s oracle of Delos. Finally, Latona (Leto) and Ilithyia, worshiped as divinities, and the virgins Arge and Opis, celebrated in the religious songs of the Delians and Ionians (Herodotus, lib. IV. 35), belong to the same category of holy women gone south from Hyperborean lands. Sibylla Erythrea, by her biographical data, as well as by her severe religious principles not influenced by the Greek spirit, was an illustrious representative of the wisdom and religion of the Hyperboreans, or Pelasgians from north of the Ister. “The people of Ellada call me a woman from “another country”.” – she says in her oracles.
Hyperborea was actually above Boreas’ land of Thrace, which unlike today must have been a very cold place in its northern areas. The Carpathians may have been part of lower Hyperborea, which I believe went up as far as they knew then, possibly to the Baltic Sea, whose people would have been aware of lands even further North. Atlas spends some time in Hyperborea but ‘golden haired’ Leto, Apollo and Artemis are certainly Hyperboreans.
Osiris’s origins appear to be in the area of the lower Danube as the God Zamolxis, I have also had my own thoughts reinforced that the Egyptians came from this area also. This all relates to following the Sky Column or Pillar/World Axis/Polaris religion. The Djed Pillar is a representation of this. This is a religion that the Pelasgians adopted and then spread.
I also think that there was a Pannonian Sea, a fresh water sea in the Carpathians where Wallachia is now due to rereading myths once again. Here is some interesting reading that gives some evidences of the Pillar cult of the Lower Danube originating in Hyperborea spreading all around the world.
The colonization and reign of the Pelasgians in North Africa begins in times extremely remote.
Egypt in particular is characterized by a Neolithic European civilization, whose character is Pelasgian (Morgan, Recherches sur les origins de l’Egypte, Paris, 1896-97). Herodotus mentions the Pelasgian colonies in Africa. In the western parts of the river Triton, or in the province called “Africa” at the time of the Romans, existed an agricultural population called Maxyes, who as they said, were originated from the nation of the Trojans (lib. IV. c. 191).
Carthage itself was Pelasgian in the beginning, later though this city fell under the rule of a commercial colony from Tyre (Silius Italicus, Punica, lib. XV. p.444). But the population from the territory subjected to Carthage was not Phoenician. It had remained Pelasgian, as can be ascertained from the big progress made by the Roman civilization in those parts, as well as from the particularities of the folk Latin language which has developed there.
Other African tribes had European mores and traditions too. Getulians, the most numerous people of Libya (Mela, lib. I. c. 3; Eustathius, Commentarii in Dionysium, v. 215), which began at the shores of the Atlantic ocean and stretched towards south of Mauritania, Numidia and Cyrenaica, appear by their name, as well as by their traditions and ethnic character, as a population migrated there from the south-eastern parts of Europe.
The bishop Isidore of Seville writes about them: “It is said the Getulii were the Getae, who departing from their places in very large numbers, with their ships, had occupied the Syrtes of Libya and because they had come from the territory of the Getae, they were called Getuli.” (Origines, lib. IX. 1. 118).
Other pastoral tribes which had gone forth from the Carpathians and the Lower Danube, had settled in Ethiopia even in very remote times. Pliny the Old mentions in the upper parts of the Nile, in Ethiopia, a tribe with the name of Dochi, and near them another population with Pelasgian mores and beliefs, called by the Greek authors Macrobii (lib. VI. 35. 12), long lived. Under this name were known in Europe the Hyperboreans, about whom it was said that they lived longer and happier than any other people in the world (Mela, lib. III. 5).
Among the Ethiopian kings some have until late, the name of Ramhai, Letem, Rema and Armah (Drouin, Les listes royals Ethiopiennes, Paris 1882, p.50-53), names the origin of which goes back to ante-Roman times.
But the Pelasgians of Egypt had played a special role in the civilization of Africa.
Ammon was one of the most ancient kings of Libya and Egypt. This Ammon was, as traditions tell us, a great shepherd, a “man rich in sheep” (Tertullian, De pallio. 3), nephew of Atlas from the country of the Hyperboreans (according to some old traditions Ammon’s mother was Pasiphae, the daughter of Atlas – Plutarch, Agis, c. 9), that Atlas who appears at the same time as the ancestor of a number of famous dynasties and families of Hellada, Troy and Latium.
In the sacred texts of the Egyptians, Ammon has also the name of Altaika (Pierret, Le livre d. morts, Ch. CLXV. 1-3), a form derived from Alutus, Greek ‘Atlas, which corresponds to the Romanian ethnic name of “Oltean”, from the region of Olt.
He is also named Remrem (Ibid. Ch. LXXV. 1. 2), meaning Ramlen, Arim or Ariman and Harmakhis or Armakhis (Pierret, Le Pantheon egyptien, p. 95), which presents only an Egyptian form of the ethnic Greek work ‘Arimaspeios and ‘Arimaspos, which in turn was only a simple variant of the name ‘Arimaios and ‘Arimfaios. Suidas also mentions that ‘Arimanios was the god of the Egyptians (see ‘Arima).
Thebes, the oldest and biggest city of Egypt and of the whole world, the center of a prosperity without equal in history, the ancient seat of the Egyptian dynasty and the metropolis of the cult of Ammon, has a Pelasgian name.
These Thebans, as Diodorus Siculus writes, said that they were the most ancient among all the mortals (lib. I. 50. 1; Ibid, I. 87. 9). One of their religious symbols was the bird par excellence of the high mountains, the vulture (aquila, aetos).
The most ancient kings of Egypt mentioned by the sacred archives of the temples had been Vulcan, the son of Vulcan, Saturn (Osiris and Isis, the children of Saturn), Typhon, Mars, Hercules and Apollo (Manethonis Sebennytae, Fragmenta in Mullerus, Fragmenta Hist. graec. Tom. II. p.526-531), these being the great personalities of Pelasgian history in Europe, whose names were neither Greek, nor Egyptian. Saturn had reigned over Libya and Sicily and had colonized those lands (Polemonis Iliensis, Fragm. 102 in Gragm. Hist. gr. III. 148). And Diodorus Siculus tells us that Saturn, the brother of Atlas, had reigned over Sicily, Libya, Italy and had extended his empire over all the western regions, establishing garrisons everywhere, in citadels and in fortified places (lib. III. 61).
Even during the Neolithic epoch, countless tribes of Pelasgians departed with their large flocks from the Carpathians towards Hellada and Asia Minor, and from Asia Minor continued little by little down, along the shores of Lebanon and finally together with other tribes from Hellada and the islands of the archipelago, they reached the expansive plains of the Nile.
Disciplined people, religious, laborious and warlike at the same time, the Pelasgian shepherds and farmers were masters during those remote times, wherever they settled. They took with them their national institutions, an established ancestral religion, their divinities and priests, and they formed their political centers wherever they settled.
But the sacred country of the Egyptian-Pelasgian religion was still that particular one from the ends of the earth, from the Oceanos Potamos or Ister. In that part of the world were for the ancient Pelasgians of Egypt “the divine region”, their ancient religious monuments, the images of their protective gods, the country of their ancestors, worshiped as gods. Their sacred mountains, the sky columns were there. According to ancient Egyptian beliefs the divine region of the wheat was there (Pierret, Le livre d. morts. Ch. CXI. 5), there was the place of abundance, where the wheat grew 7 ells high, the straw 4 ells and the ear 3 ells.
There was the place of rebirth, the country of eternal life, which the Hyperboreans and later on the Getae and the Dacians, promoted with such religious conviction. There the souls of the dead of Egypt migrated, in order to continue with a new and blessed life (Pierret, Le livre d. morts. Ch. LV. 1; Ch. LXXV 1. 2), exactly like the souls of the Pelasgian heroes of Hellada did.
There was the great divine river, called Nun, “father of the gods” (Ibid. Ch. XVII. 3-4), which flew from west towards east, identical with Oceanos Potamos or prehistoric Ister. Exactly like in the Pelasgian legends of Greece, the sun rose from the great divine river Nun (Oceanos) and set also in it (Ibid. Ch. XV. 18, 19). During the day the disc of the sun sailed on the river Nun in its divine boat (Maspero, Egypte et Chaldee, p.18), and at night it disappeared in the straits of the mountains called Dait, in the somber shadows of the night (Ibid, p.19). As the papyri tell us, the souls of the Osiric faithful crossed the river Nun in the boat of the sun, to this divine country (Pierret, Le livre d. morts, Ch. I. 18. 19; Ch. LXVII. 2), to till the earth, to plough, saw and harvest (Ibid. Ch. LXXV. 1; ChXII. 1. 2; Ch. CIX. 13; Ch. CXX. 2). Crossing over the river Nun, the Egyptian souls stood firstly in front of the gods, to be judged by them (Ibid. Ch. VI; XII. XVII. 95; LXIX. 5; LXXII; CXXV) at the place called “the region of truth” (Ibid. Ch. CXXV 12-13), where there was also an iron enclosure called Rosta and Rostau (Ibid, Ch. XVII. 1; Ch. CXIX. 2; CXXVI 4-5; CXXX. 9).
In Romanian, ‘rostei’ means ‘iron bar’, or interwoven iron or wooden rods used as grilles for windows, etc). And after the Egyptian deceased were examined, purified and their heart hold the balance of the scales, they passed into the divine lower region which the Egyptian papyri call the place of rebirth (Ibid. Ch. VI; XV. 15. 21; LVIII. 2; XVII. 79), the country of eternity (Ibid. Ch. XV. 7). This region was inhabited by the spirits and the people called Mani (ancestors), 8 ells tall, and in its eastern side were the spirits and people called Harmakhis (Ibid, Ch. XV. 15; LV. 1; CIX 4-6; CXLIX 4-5, 18, 332).
These Egyptian beliefs were based on an ancient Pelasgian doctrine. It was the institution of the great mysteries of the Hyperboreans for the purification and expiation of the crimes done during lifetime, mysteries whose purpose was the belief in life after death and the necessity to expiate one’s sins through penitence.
To them belonged the initiation of the mysteries of Samothrace, Crete and Eleusis. These mysteries were based on the cult of the subterranean divinities (chtonic, lower) and the purification was made in the name of these divinities. They were usually celebrated at night and in subterranean places, in order to excite even more the imagination of those initiated.
Plato mentions the institution of the great Hyperborean mysteries from the north of Ister in Axiochus.
The virgins Opis and Hecaerge, sent by the Hyperboreans with gifts to Delos, had taken there also two copper tablets, which contained a detailed description of this institution. It was said that the souls of the deceased went firstly to a subterranean dwelling, to the palace of Pluto. The entryway which led to this palace was shut with an iron grille. After the gate opened, the souls went firstly before the judges Minos and Rhadamanthis in the “Field of Truth”. There the judges examined in detail the life of each, and those who had done good in life were given a place in the region of the pious, where the earth produced all sort of fruit and the plain is full of flowers, where is neither harsh winter, nor excessive heat, but a temperate air, warmed by the sweet rays of the sun, where the souls enjoy themselves in feasts and play, in philosophical discussions and assist to theatre or music representations. The tablets said finally that Hercules and Dionysos or Osiris had been also initiated there in those mysteries.
The image with which the ancient Egyptian theology symbolized the principal, or eastern pillar of the sky, was only a faithful copy of the north face of the column which exists even today on Omu Peak, in the Carpathians.
As the divine region or of the gods was, according to Egyptian traditions and beliefs, in the northern parts of the world, across the river Nun or Ister, the Egyptian theology had similarly adopted the religious symbol of the creation, represented by the gigantic column of the sky from the Carpathians, exactly as the Pelasgians of Mycenae had also done.
The symbol of the Egyptian trinity presents the same contours as the exterior shape of the north-western face of the column from the Carpathians. Even more: there is an absolute identity between the two, when we examine the figures which we see shown on these archaic monuments.
In the upper part of the column from Omu Peak can be seen even today the contours of a woman’s naked body, with her back up and face down, with her head to the west and the thighs to the east, a figure represented in the same style in which the Egyptian symbol presents Nut, the lady of the sky. We also find here the same particularities of the line which forms the upper contour, while the lower line marks also the shape of the woman’s breast.
Finally, on the same face of the column, in the middle towards left, can be made out even today, but with great difficulty, the marks almost vanished of the bust of the divinity Chnum, whose attribute was the head of the ram.
The Pelasgians had reigned over Egypt during the primitive times of history (Maspero, Egypte et Chaldee, p.47), like they had reigned also over Hellada and over the western parts of Asia.
But they shared the same fate of those of Hellada. A new element, another race of men brought there probably from the upper regions of the Nile, rose later to the rule over the ancient Pelasgian stratum, which had made from the swampy plains of Egypt an agricultural country, which had put there the first foundation of civilization.
It was the pharaonic population, which at the time when it settled in Egypt had been neither pastoral nor agricultural. These pharaonic Egyptians considered that the first inhabitants of the plains of the Nile had been the gods who had reigned over Egypt in prehistoric times (Homer calls the Pelasgians “divine”, meaning that they drew their origin from the gods – Iliad, X. v. 429; Odyss. XIX. v. 177), and whose the principal country and residence had been at the north of Ister (Nun).
To these men-gods, who had once ruled over the south and north regions (Africa and Europe), address the Egyptian mummies their prayers, to be allowed in the other world to till the earth, to plough, to sow, to harvest, to flood the rivers over the dry earth and to transport sand from west to east (Pierret, Le livre d. morts, Ch. VI. 1; Ch. VI. 3; Ch. XII. 2; Ch. CXX. 2). They are called in their Osiric prayers Ro – bi, meaning servants (Ibid. Ch. CIV. 2. 3). In Romanian, ‘rob’ means ‘servant’ (the plural is ‘robi’).
According to the ancient ethnic genealogies, the territory of the titan Atlas from the country of the Hyperboreans appears as the original country of several tribes and a number of important princely families from Hellada, Asia Minor, Africa and Italy.
On a fragment of a vase discovered in Apulia, Atlas the lord of the blessed country of the Hyperboreans, founder of several southern Pelasgian families, that Atlas in whose kingdom not only the fruit, but also the branches of the trees were of gold, is shown sitting on a throne, in complete regal paraphernalia (Roscher, Lexikon der gr. u.rom. Mythologie. I. p.710).
According to Plato (Axiochus – Ed. Didot. Tom. II. p. 561), the Hyperboreans had been the first to consider the universe as a sphere, at the centre of which was the Earth.
And according to Diodorus Siculus (lib. IV. 27. 5), king Atlas whose empire was near Oceanos Potamos, had possessed very exact knowledge of astrology and had been the first to regard the universe as a globe, because of which it was said that the entire firmament rests on Atlas (Pliny, Hist. Nat. lib. II. 2; lib. II. 6. 3; lib. VII. 57. 12). This mystical sign, which prehistoric archaeology could not explain so far, represents on its lower part the sky column, in the shape of a stunted pyramid (trapeze), having figured above it the sky, in the same shape as on the hieroglyphic monuments of Egypt, a horizontal line with the ends bent downwards.
This religious symbol of the future life and of the divine region tells us therefore that the ancient Etruscan religion was the same as the religion of the Pelasgians from the Ister, Argos and Egypt. This symbol expressed in particular the same religious belief that the souls of the deceased went to the residence of the gods (at the Oceanos Potamos), where the Atlantean Olympus was, in the country of the just, long lived Hyperboreans, where the sky was supported on the earth, where the supreme judgment took place, where the place of happiness was, the region of the pious. On a vase from Sicily the smithy of Vulcan is indicated as being close to the rock to which Prometheus is led and this rock we say it again, presents in everything the contours of the W-NW face of the column from the Carpathians.
We have here therefore an important document from the Italo-Greek antiquity, a document which gives us an absolute certitude that the prehistoric Olympus of the theogony, the Olympus from the ends of the earth according to Hesiod, was that mountain on which were the legendary columns of the sky, Atlas from the country of the Hyperboreans, Olympus Atlantiacus at Calpurnius (IV. v. 83), today Omu Peak of Bucegi Mountains, near the Lower Ister, where there are, apart from the columns, the other monuments famous in the history of theogony, the figure of Zeus Aigiochos and the cyclopean altars.
Gebeleizis is a combo of two parts, Gebel and Azizis. Azizis itself is very ancient and is just a few clicks away from Caput Bubula (first cow or cow grandmother) on the tabula. Today you might hear Caput Bubula called Parța (big cow cult centre, now called Șag) and Azizis is called Jebel.
Zalmoxis had a great underground dwelling built where he retreated for 3 years. During that time a great catastrophe struck the people. He reappeared and saved the remainders. I would call his dwelling the Apsu, Vara of Yima, royal enclosure of the Tuat, Pen of Geryon.
I believe this tribal name is also the name of a proto-Hyperborean tribe, where one can reduce this to Boreans.
A quick timeline: Buryan tribe name could start in Siberia (Lake Baikal) and today is called Buryatia. Note the horizontal crescent moon on their flag, and also Azerbaijan’s flag, where Azer (As people) and Baijan (Burjan) people. Buryans would be Tangrenist shamans (where the Earth god lives at the tops of the mountains and caves are sacred chapels, i.e. pyramids).
Buryans were called the “wolf people”, and also Buryan means “loosely” Sky-God and in later periods also as the “wolf’s Soul”. National Geographic and the History channels both did specials on domesticated dogs, and make the claim that nearly all domesticated dogs originate from Siberian wolves, and that dogs all show this DNA connection as their predecessor. Thus, Buryans likely domesticated the Siberian wolf, and were called the “Wolf People”. Because American Indians brought this dog with them, I can extrapolate this date. In Beringa (Bering Sea land bridge), archaeologists find dog remains and date to ~12,000 BC. Also dogs of Kurdistan (Halafians) date to about 11,000 BC. Thus, Buryans migrated in two directions (east and west) from S. Siberia, and would be where this name was first used. The same can be said for the horse too, but at later dates, and more Central-Asia, and/or Pamir Knot regions of the NW Himalayas. Also, African artifacts have been found at Malta and Buret (by Lake Baikal) and carbon dated to 22-25,000 BC. Thus, there is a direct African DNA connection to this region just before, or coincidental to when this name appears, suggesting other proto-Buryan migrations wouldn’t be needed to make this date, and origins claim cohesive using DNA analysis. This becomes “very clean” from this perspective, if using current DNA migration theories.
Buryans would be “blue wolf” as is Burte Chino (blue wolf) in Mongolian mythology. They are Baskhorts (Bashkirs and also as Burzyan, Burzhan) where Bashkort can mean “Blue Wolf” and/or “Head of the Wolf”. The Buryan (Burjan) is al-Burjan lands in Iranian mythology and today called Georgia, but wherein in Romania, you find Colchus people who originate from Georgia. The term Iberia I believe is I-Berians, where you find Iberia=Iberu=Ebur River, Spain where you find Burriana Beach today.
In Greek terms, they are Zeus, Apollo, and most interesting, Hephaestus (ref: Ptah-Egypt, and Thor-Germany) and that all three exhibit a hammer. They are miners, blacksmiths, and forgers of metals. Burjans and Hephaestus can both be traced to Lemnos Island in the Aegean and I estimate a date here at 10-1500 BC. Burjans were here with the Amazons, but data suggest they preferred Thracian women. Thracians at one time ruled this island as well. I have every reason to believe that it was Burjans who wrote Jason and the Argonauts because they come from Colchus anyway, and knew these things that the Greeks didn’t.
In Romania, Buryan (Burjan) is actually the Buri tribe and thus is also the 1st Nordic god Buri and his sons Wodan (Odin, Oden) and in particular Bor (Borri). Also note that the Romulus and Remus saga matches the Asena Saga real well. Buryans founded Rome at 753 BC, and are likely also Etruscans.
There is a Buri province in Romania, Buridava village, and Burzenland. I believe Burgunland may be the same, and also Beierjnland (Netherlands) to be possibly the same people as well.
The Buriano Bridge (Tuscany, Italy) is believed to be the one in the Mona Lisa painting. This name in Tuscany is actually a Lombardic migration at ~800 AD into Colonna di Buriano, and their capital at Milan. They are Anglo-Saxon of origins though, not exactly Italians, but of similar albeit more ancient stock.
I believe that it may actually be the Burians who wrote many mythological stories and other sources have suggested this. I have no reason yet to dispute this notion, and find this name is global. I believe that Burians (Buri-Ans) may be responsible for building the Romanian wooden type henge at Sarmisegetuza.
For the Vistula River, I believe that linen traceable to the Tarim Mummies (NE China or Central Asia – the oldest are ~1800 BC – the first found was nicknamed “Bohemian Burgher” – it’s believed they had blond-hair and blue-eyes) has been matched to linen at the natural amber deposits somewhere midway up the Vistula. Close to here you find the Buri tribe about where Berlin may be. Because Burgundians were also associated with this amber here. This may be them, however I recall this was a date of ~1500 BC. This is a Celtic, or kilt type Irish weave. Thus, the weave also traceable to the N. Black Sea (Scythians, or Saka Aryans) would allow a Danube migration in lieu of a Baltic Sea avenue, if these are related tribes at such early dates. Burgundians are called Burjans by many historians and the Sarmatians of the Black Sea are neighbors to Burjans.
I believe the mid-dated Tarim mummies also match the “Golden Man” mummy found in Sakas (Sakastan from where Buddha originates). This mummy is called “Golden Man” because he is wearing 4000 pieces of gold. His burial matches Tarim burials and I believe his skeletal cranium matches some Tarim mummies to allow this date est. for this type of Tarim mummy. There is a Mongolian-Siberian part to this too. In Iran Burians are Burjan and possibly Burzhan, and/or Burzyan (Bashkorts and Bashkirs).
Because some historians claim Burjans wrote the mythologies for Greece, Rome, and perhaps Northern peoples too, then this favors a Lemnos Island Burjan (also connects to Etruscans by grave inscriptions), the Lemnos Hephaestus (god of the forge) and Buri in Dacia as you are well aware of. This strongly suggests a Buri tribe to be Scythian in an earlier epoch, and that Nordic gods evolved from here. Some Russians claim that the Siberian Buryan god migrated across Northern territories and then became this Nordic Buri god, in this way. So far, my data suggests a Scythian Black Sea route through a southern region for all of these factors, including Tarim Basin mummies to come about. This aligns data concerning the gods in Romania and the geological artifacts found here.
The Dnieper River was also the Buri-Chay and the Buri tribe here was also called Buri-Chai relative to Bulgars around 500 AD. Burjans on the Volga River Russia (near Kazan) also celebrated the “winter festival” on Dec. 25th. We could debate on who founded Rome, however I think these people actually have a name and they are not merely “barbarians” and “pagans”. Afterall, I believe it was Hyperboreans who devised that man was created from the dust of the ground (the Vatican’s Adam) and also that your soul survives death. The Lupercali archaeology in Rome, concurrent as we speak, show the underground grotto, where Lupercali means the “wolf’s cave”. How long will we have to bleed this to death until someone in Italy wakes up? I’ve decided that the Vatican can keep their private library private, but will show that I can still demonstrate who founded Rome, none-the-less. These people do have a name. Winterfest is said to be solely a Burjan tradition and I believe Bari Italy is also Burjans, the home of Santa Claus and connectable directly to Bavaria (Bayern). Why does the name Bayern have an “y” in it. Why was Berlin also from an earlier Berjlin. Why does the Netherlands have Beierjnland and why does Romania have Burzenland?
Also, I’ve learned that in Romania, Burjans as miners and forgers “could” fit the Sarmisegetuza ruins because this was called “metal mountain” in Dacian times, and there is also a reference to a Boreas Cave in the Carpathians, but I haven’t found this on a map yet. If I’m correct, then this cave is related to Buri, Colchus, Goths, Boreans, Pelasgians, Liburnians, as proto-Dacians. They should be a wolf tribe and carry Draco type banners. They would also worship Borean and/or Buri gods, that is to say Zeus-Apollo, or Nordic Buri-Bor-Borri-Wodan-Odin-Oden.
In Libya, I have a historical reference to a very “white” people who came here and held a seat at a location called Berryan. I haven’t found Berryan on any maps, but I think it was close to Mzab. Zeus, Apollo and Atlas, all can be connected to Libya, so this becomes obvious at these dates. I believe Libya may be Li-Bya where Bya could be Buryan, Berryan, and could also be similar to Liburnia (Macedonia) and where I think Liburnia may be as Li-Burnia, i.e. Buryans (Burjan, Burdjan) too. Libyans were also called “belted dog warriors” I believe. Bari (Barium, Barion) Italy is associated with both Libyans and Berbers and I believe they are also Bavarians (Bayern). Italy’s Bari Coat of Arms (CoA) has a blue and white checkerboard and matches the blue-white Bayern CoA.
Baybars ruled Egypt and became the Mamluk dynasty from after he defeated Genghis Khan in Asia Minor (~1250 AD) until the end of World War One (~1920). Baybars introduced the “Imperial Royal Lion” on Egyptian coinage. Prior to this, their Persian type coins only used script lines, no tamgas, symbols, or creatures.
Who was Baybars? He was born in Crimea as a Bashkir (where Bashkir = Bashkort), or an Ukrainian Russian, but where Bashkorts originate in the Altai, then Ural mountains (Bashkortostan) and later Crimea. He was sold as a Syrian slave to Egypt where his warrior attributes became known and he later became an Egyptian commander. At the time of Genghis Khan, he was dispatched to Asia Minor in light of the fact the Egyptians were also fighting Templars in Jerusalem. Baybars defeated Genghis and I believe he also thereafter beat the Templars in Israel. However in Egypt, he wasn’t awarded anything due to his slave pedigree. I believe he wanted Aleppo (at the west end of the Silk Trail from Mongolia-China) in Asia Minor. He thereafter toppled the Egyptian government and made all of Egypt his own, verified on his coins. In translation, Baybars was of (and I quote): “of Burdgogly tribe – Buryan Bashkorts”.
The Bora mint in Spain is on the Ebur River, where: Ebur=Iberu=Iberia=Burjan, in my opinion. Steel was billed as one of Spain’s 1st industries and there are tribal migrations from the Danube into the wilderness of SE France, then into NW Spain. El Cid, Spain’s liberator lived in Borriana and I have a map showing this as Iberian Spain, that is NE and the east side of Spain. Cid would have used a Burjan “steel” sword. An Arabian traveler landed here and called it the “Land of King Burjan” which shows the translation as Burgundian. Many show that Burgundian = Burjan.
I believe Phoenicians who are said to be of Siberian, Buryat and Yakut stock, were minimum trading partners with the Hyperboreans, where Hyperborean can be Yperborean, allowing for an Yberian type explanation for the word Iberia. They are known alchemists which suggests Iberians are indeed, also Hyperboreans.
Also, The Buri tribe lost to the Romans on the Vistula River in Poland at ~170 AD, then migrated to Terras de Burros (Lands of the Buri) Portugal, to avoid paying taxes to Rome. Later went to Brazil (Buri province).
A Bury castle ruin in England is also related to Chateau de Bury, North / Central France, where the Coat of Arms exhibits a wolf. Bury St. Edmunds, England’s earliest of formal towns and the 1st English patron saint, has a wolf story folklore relative to St. Edmunds being beheaded. He was replaced by St. George. I can show that St. George follows Burians around as is the case for the Hephaestus temple in Greece now re-dedicated as the Church of St. George. Afterall, Georgia was al-Burjan before this dragon slayer guy was around. The English flag exhibits the St. George cross, as does the Templar shields.
In Scotland there is the Burrian Stone (the inscription exhibits an eagle, z-rod, mirror and crescent moon type figure), a Burrian Celtic cross type and Burrian’s Hill, an ancient iron age smelter site.
In Ireland there is a village called “the Burren”, Claire County. It’s ancient and full of dolmens and rocks, and also has a location where no plants will grow relative to some ancient voodoo type hex, or something…
PERSONAL NOTE :
Diodorus Siculus writes in the Library of History, Book III-LX, a legend about Atlas as follows: “After the death of Hyperion – it is told – the sons of Uranus had split the kingship between them. The most renowned were Atlas and Chronos. Atlas received the kingship near Oceanos (Black Sea) and the people in those days were called Atlanteans. Atlas gave his name to the highest mountain from his land as well. It is said about him, that he had minutely known the laws of celestial movements, sharing with the people the theory of the spherical form. From here comes the legend that Atlas carries the Earth on his shoulders. And in this imaginary form, where mythology depicts the representation of the celestial globe, Atlas had several sons, out of whom one of them, Hesperos, differed through his piety, through his sense of righteousness towards his loyalists and through his sense of humanity. Sometime Hesperos – climbing to the mountaintop of Mount Atlas to observe the stars – had been abducted by unleashed and sudden storms and had disappeared from the face of the earth. The peoples deciding to give him the honor worthy of a god, the brightest star from the sky was gifted with his name. The Atlanteans who live in the plentiful regions on the banks of Oceanos, greatly surpassed – it seems – their neighbours, through piety and hospitality. They claim that the cradle of the gods is their land. Atlas had seven daughters, who – after his name – were given a common name, Atlantids. They were placed on the sky and had received the name of Pleiades.”
“They are imbeciles, those who say about my works that are abstract; that which they call abstract is the purest realism, because reality is not represented by the exterior form, but by the idea behind it, the essence of things.” — Constantin Brâncuși
To the left we have a representation of what is known today as “The Column of the Endless Sacrifice”, dating from 11.000 B.C., whilst to the right we have the same symbol found on Romanian traditional folk clothing, on traditional Romanian houses, also on ceramics from the neolithic cultures of Central and South-Eastern Europe and last but not least, in the middle we have the great Romanian sculptor Constantin Brâncuși and his masterpiece.
It is easily understood that the sculptor wanted to bring back to surface, a Romanian reality, long forgotten, with deep roots and as old as time itself.
Are nowadays Romanians humble and hospitable? Maybe you should come and see for yourself dear reader…
