RETHINKING CHRISTMAS: AN ARCHEOLOGY OF MEANINGS December 28, 2013

RETHINKING CHRISTMAS: AN ARCHEOLOGY OF MEANINGS

Erle Frayne Argonza

 

A Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone else!

That I started with a goodwill greeting associated with the Christmas occasion doesn’t make me a church devotee of which I definitely am not. I have departed a long time ago yet from Catholic Church, my childhood church, though I am still sympathetic to some of its key doctrines of faith notably Vatican II.

On the other hand, not being a church devotee doesn’t make me any less a disciple of Jesus the Christed One. I am very much a disciple of Jesus and his team-mates of Ascended Beings, and I’d categorically declare that I am, in this respect, a Christian. It is for this reason that I do attune myself to the rituals of the Christians who are largely fanatical devotees of the Cult of Jesus which was officially dubbed as Christian Church in the generic sense.

So many fallacies and lies were propagated by the Jesusian cults (i.e. churches) over the past two (2) millennia, one of which is the contention that Jesus was born on the night of 24th of December. Nobody knows about the exact date when Jesus, the World Teacher, embodied and was born as an infant a full Age ago (1 Age = 2,150 years approximately). There are mystics today who claim that Jesus was born around the end of March, but as to the exact day of his birth (using the Gregorian calendar) no mystic had made a precise claim.

In the first place, the devotional practice of giving so much importance to the exact day of birth of a founding Master in its literal sense is purely this: blind fanaticism. Even if we presume that Jesus was born on the 24th of December, there is a greater underlying meaning behind his birth that the ordinary devotees and cult hierarchs have no knowledge about. But if only the cult devotees would look to numerology for some answers regarding the question of meaning, they would find fruitful answers via this method.

But as everybody realizes, Jesusians are bent on declaring that any contention that lies outside the church/cult dogmas is a work of the Devil. You could just imagine how many freethinkers and esoteric seekers may have been labeled with the ad hominem Devil by the Jesusian cultists (church goers), and it is no surprise that this writer had earned the ire of many such fanatical cultists such as his former university students. Well, the bad luck for the fanatics is that this is no Medieval Period, and so I could make the boldest claims to unmasking church lies without being accosted or burned at stake by fanatics. Also, I reside inside the University of the Philippines (Diliman) which is the ultimate bastion of freedom in the whole of Southeast Asia. My big city, Manila, is also the citadel of freedom in Asia, so no one would stone me to death or burn me alive anywhere here for being an iconoclast.

Now, let me go straight to the question of meaning. This interpretive task is a matter of deep exegesis, likened to interpreting a dream. As one who had studied semiotics (science of signs) via the behavioral sciences and esoteric philosophy, the task is easy just the same. Humans normally resort to rituals or ceremonies, and often the cycles of seasons and weather patterns evoke ideas that then translate into ritualizing engagements. Social relations produce thought, as the sociology of knowledge (cognitive sociology) had so succinctly declared as a social law. This is our starting point for our recondite reflection.

In the ancient past, the production of rituals was the chief task of the Shaman (babaylan in ancient Philippines). The shaman was the priest (or priestess), medicine man (or woman) or healer, white magician/alchemist (taps energies for beneficial purposes), mystic (bridge to the Divine Beings), and philosopher, all rolled into a single functionary. It is important to cite the shaman here, as we can best understand the significance of the ‘December 24 event’ by putting ourselves in the position of the Roman high priests (Rome’s own equivalent of shamans) and see what this intersubjective process can reveal to us.

Remember that the Roman shamans were, in ancient parlance, pagans. In today’s anthropological language, they were animists. As such, they represented a people that was so close to nature, and knew well the cycles of seasons. Like the shamans from other cultures, they had designed rituals for every kind of human activity conceivable. A child, before being born, is prayed for using mantrams and ceremonial rites, and then receives another ritual upon birth, and another ritual upon reaching puberty, and so on till death. Likewise did the seasons of both hemispheres receive equal treatment in terms of ritualization. Ditto to the cycles of pre-cultivation, cultivation, and post-harvest for food production (agriculture, horticulture). The Romans were into such practices, to emphatically mark our point here, more so that they were already city-builders and were of advanced caliber in knowledge and technological pursuits of their time; their shamans, likewise of the highest caliber.

Culled from above is the idea of ritualizing for the end of the autumn season and the beginning of the winter season in the Northern hemisphere. The significance of Christmas, of Jesus’ birth being assigned to the 24th of December, has a great deal to do with the autumn-to-winter interface (to use current terminology). Officially, the equalization of the patterns of autumn and winter is cognized as the Winter solstice, which falls on the 21st of December in the North (winter solstice in the south falls on the 21st of June, which is summer solstice in the North).

Even before Christianity was declared an official religion, without doubt the Romans were already in the habit of ritualizing the coming of Winter. No further research is needed to establish this. All of the ethnic communities in the Mediterranean for that matter held rituals signifying the start of Winter, and the inter-permeation of cultural elements by dint of cultural diffusion is responsible for the degree of homogenization of Winter ritual patterns in the same area. Which means that the Latins (Romans), Etruscans, Greeks, Hamites, Semites, Phoenicians, Carthaginians, and Iberians shared more or less similar traits in their Winter rituals, the most focal being that they all celebrated Winter solstice in certain ways.

The question now is, what is the deeper significance of December the 24th other than that it marks the 3rd day after the Winter solstice? And why the 3rd day after the solstice was declared as the ‘birth of Jesus’ by the new rising religion, the Cult of Jesus (Christianity)? Why not simply assign the 21st of December as the day of his birth, which will make the birthday identical to the 1st day of winter (the 21st)?

As to the date, the 3rd day after the solstice, a note: 3 is the number of Trinity (Father, Son, Spirit) in Christology. In numerology (Indian and Pythagorean systems), 3 denotes creativity, productivity, motion, action, activity. The two semiotic sets do converge. Instead of copying the solstice day as D’ Day, the ancient shamans (who were the new bishops and priests of the Jesusian cult) decided that it would be more appropriate to indicate the Trinitarian power in the date, which makes the 24th rather than the 21st as the top candidate. For a numerologist, the day makes sense, in that declaring a creative-dynamic signification on a winter’s season, which is a season of rest or motionlessness, generates a sense of balance of the action-rest duality (yin-yang in the East).

Not only that. It would also make greater sense for the devotees or blind fanatics (a redundancy really, because devotee and fanatic are identical) if the date of birth would be on a day other than the 21st which most Mediterraneans and Northerners already celebrate. The ‘uniqueness criterion’ is an important element in decision-making, and by using this criterion means that the 24th of December made the Jesusians or Jesuits (church fanatics) a unique people who created rituals outside of the common ritual templates. That is, the 24th of December rendered the fanatics the illusion of uniqueness, which made them rest on solid psychological grounds: they need not defend any longer that they were copy-cat folks.

Now, that leads us to the next idea: converging the ‘uniqueness’ element with the ‘chosen people’ eschatological belief present in all religions and cultures. Supposedly, Jesus was the harbinger of the new idea that the ‘gentiles’ (literally the ‘outsiders’ of a chosen people who were the Jews) were themselves a ‘chosen people’ and not outsiders or outcaste. The Jesusian cult has now given the fanatics not only a sense of uniqueness, but also declared that such a uniqueness reclined in their being the ‘chosen ones’. The time for the old chosen ones has ended, and a new chosen one has begun in mandate.

You could just imagine the ecstatic impact that such a convergence of ideas could produce among the erstwhile herds of fanatics, who for many centuries were loathsome outsiders in the civilizational game. They were the barbarians & savages of the previous ages, the outsiders who were recognized best for their destructive propensities. Now they are the co-creators or co-producers of the Divine Spheres or God (co-creation signified by number 3), the next harbingers of civilization. And true indeed, the former barbarians, who were mainly Europeans, felt this mission so strongly in their psyche that for many centuries thereafter they scoured the earth for ‘heathens’ who would be converts to their idea of civility, of being cultured, progressive, rational, and humanist.

Of course, the psychological mood or theme evoked by the entire ritualizing of birth in the 24th is Hope: that Jesus was the embodiment of hope, that there was finally hope for the Europeans who for centuries were heathen slaves. Of course, it was the greatest psychological victory for the Latins (Romans & sister tribes) in as much as they were then the center of civilization world-wide. The 24th also gave the same Europeans the same sense of hope at a time of hopelessness and despair that were evoked by the cyclical winter season.

Cultivating the seed of creativity, activity, uniqueness and hope, all converging within a common seed-idea—the birthing of the Ascended Master Jesus and bestowing him with the role of Begotten Son of the Father God—and planting this in the psyche of Europeans is among the most profound developments in the genetic seeding and improvement of the Europeans themselves. True indeed, and humanity better accept this, no matter how destructive may have been the methods employed by European powers in their conquests, the Torch of Civility for the entire Piscean Age was vested in the European. Their time had come 2000+ years ago, and no force on Earth could stop that.

2000+ years ago, the seed of that historic mission of the Europeans was planted, concocted, congealed in thought, which then permeated right deep into their Collective Unconscious, which eventually got implanted in their genes. For the Collective Unconscious, which belongs to the Electromagnetic Field or EMF, interfaces directly with the biophysical, and that to induce changes in the EMF will likewise result to corresponding changes in the bio-physical dimension. The changes, in other words, will be planted as genetic traits that will govern the actions of the people concerned in the long run.

That, dearest readers, is the significance of the (night of) 24th of December. The mission of the Europeans has now been optimized, after the full Age of Pisces. Likewise the mission of Jesus: to carry on his shoulders for 2000+ years the collective karma of Earth’s humanity. The European-Jesusian missions are now over, and the Torch is now being passed on to the peoples of the East, particularly to the Pacific Asians. But this new development, which will be the definitive development of the Age of Aquarius, is another thing. Suffice me at this moment to say: I’ve shared my thoughts about the deep significance of the 24th of December, by resorting to an archeology of the psyche and soul.

A Merry Christmas again to you all! May my love for all Jesusian cultists be re-declared here, please accept my goodwill for you all. May you all evolve in spirit! Let’s all chant the mantram: Jesus is Love! Jesus is Love! Jesus is Love!

3rd PLANE BEINGS BREED TERRANS IN MELANESIAN LORE December 24, 2013

3rd PLANE BEINGS BREED TERRANS IN MELANESIAN LORE

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

Another tale from the same tribe shows a more typical form of the story. According to this, seven parakeets one day flew down to bathe, doffing their bird garments and laying them on a bench while they made merry in the water as beautiful maid-ens. Magoenggoelota crept up and stole the garment of the youngest, who, realizing that something was wrong, called to her sisters, “Whew! I smell human flesh,” at which the others were vexed and said, “Oh, how could any mortal come here? You are joking.” Soon they all went out to resume their garments, but though the older sisters found theirs and donned them, the youngest was unable to perceive her own until she saw a man who held it in his hand. Her sisters had disappeared, for they had flown up to the sky; and when they arrived, they said to their mother, “Kapapitoe has gone away, for someone took her dress,” at which their mother shed tears and berated them for abandoning their sister, so that they did not dare to go bathing any more. Meanwhile the younger sister wept and begged Magoenggoelota to give her back her feather garment, but he refused, saying, “Come, stop your crying. I shall do you no harm, but shall take you to my house as my wife,” to which she answered, “Very well, if you will, take me with you; but first give me back my clothes.” When she had promised not to fly away, he returned her feather garment, but when she put it on, he held her fast until she said, “You don’t need to hold me; I will not go away, for I do not know the road. If you are fond of me, put me in your betel-box,” and accordingly he took out his betel-box, put her in it, and took her to his home.

 

REFLECTIONS

 

The ‘swan’ archetype in one mythos now appears as the ‘parakeet’ archetype in another. In this current version, the parakeets mutates to humans as they descended to the ‘water’ to take a bath’. It was during such descent, while their over-garments were taken off from them, that humans crept upon them, till the conclusion was the breeding with the humans.

 

The ‘parakeets’ were of course beings coming from the mental plane or 3rd plane (governed by air element), and were on their way down in the devolution phase of their own development. During the descent to ‘water’—the 2nd plane or astral plane (governed by water element), that the breeding with Terrans occurred.

 

The lore reveals that there could have been sentient beings on Earth at that time of descent of the higher dimension beings. The higher beings could be interpreted as those coming from higher level planets, who came to infuse knowledge in creating a new breed out of the morphing Terrans at that time, and they in turn embodying in those new forms.

 

Theos Sophia is very succinct about the coming of the ‘lunar pitris’ and ‘solar pitris’ who aided in bringing life to the almost lifeless (phlegmatic, almost animal ‘mind’ proto-humans then) forms then habituating the planet. Nature unaided cannot produce humans, as divine wisdom clearly declared as axiom.

SEPTENARY LAW, GALACTIC BREEDING IN MELANESIA, CELEBES TO N.ZEALAND TALES December 21, 2013

SEPTENARY LAW, GALACTIC BREEDING IN MELANESIA, CELEBES TO N.ZEALAND TALES

IN Melanesia, and perhaps also in New Zealand, one of the themes found to be characteristically developed was that of the swan-maiden, i. e. the descent of a heavenly maiden to earth and her capture and marriage by an earthly hero; and since tales embodying this motif are numerous in Indonesia, a consideration of the remainder of the mythology of this region may well begin with examples of this type. The Toradja in central Celebes say that once a woman gave birth to seven crabs which, in terror and disgust, she threw into the river. The crabs gained the bank, however, and there fixed seven places for bathing and built a house; but when they entered the water, they put off their crab disguise and assumed their human form. One day, when they were disporting themselves in the river and had left their crab garments on the shore, seven men crept up and stole their clothing, thus making it impossible for the maidens to resume their animal guise; and each of the men then took one of the maidens as his wife.

REFLECTION

 

7 places, 7 men marrying maidens, 7 crabs. What else can be unearthed from the archetypes other than that, first of all, the septenary law is well embedded in them?

 

‘Descend of a heavenly maiden to earth’ is indicative of beings of higher dimension, signified by a ‘maiden’ who is further signified by the ‘swan’. The mission of these beings was to aid in breeding a new race, notably a physically morphed race, of which the Lemurians were the beginning. The breeding of the new race is signified by the maiden’s marriage to a hero.

 

The Celebes myth of a woman giving birth first to 7 crabs indicates the first human types that were very phlegmatic in movement akin to crabs’. Eventually, ‘they put off their crab disguise’, which means the ‘crab’ phase is just but a phase in the evolutionary process, which was later superseded by another evolutionary phase where more human looking races appeared. The general evolutionary epoch was those of Earth humans who reproduced sexually, the same epoch of Twinflame soulmates beginning for the planet, at the mid-Lemurian ‘root race’.

 

7 family races for each of a sub-race of humans, and 7 sub-races for every ‘root-race’. Theos Sophia or divine wisdom was very clear about the matter.

DIVERSITY OF MALAY CREATION MYTHS: SOME MORE CASES

Good day from Filipinas, the Pearl of the Orient!

 

The previous articles demonstrated samples of cosmogonic myths from across the ASEAN region and our sibling Polynesians. Below is a cross-cultural summary of myths coming from the region.

 

As an observer, please feel free to browse the diverse archetypes and seemingly shifting meanings. As already articulated earlier, the myths and legend of the region are the repositories of ‘ancient wisdom’ or ‘divine wisdom’, also known as Theos Sophia.

 

[Philippines, 29 June 2011]

In Minahassa the deity makes two images of earth, one male and one female, whom he vivifies by blowing powdered ginger into their heads and ears. The Bagobo of Mindanao say 98 that after the creation of the sea and land, and the planting of trees of many kinds, the creator took two lumps of earth, and shaping them like two human figures, he spat on them, where-upon they became “man and woman.” In Sumatra the Dairi Battak say 99 that after the deity, Batara Guru, had finished the earth, he desired to people it and accordingly first sent down a swallow, which returned, however, saying that it did not like the dwelling assigned to it. Batara Guru then wished one of his children to descend, but none of them were willing to exchange their heavenly for an earthly home. Determined to succeed, the deity himself came down to earth, bidding the swallow return to the sky to bring thence some earth from which he might shape man. With the material so provided, Batara Guru made two images, one male and one female, and set them in the sun to dry. After they had become hard, he muttered a magic formula over them seven times, and when they then began to breathe, he repeated another formula with which one may force another to speak. Then the two images spoke and said, “What do you wish of us, Grandfather, that you cry thus loudly in our ears?” and he replied : ” I have called to you so loudly because I have created you in order that you might speak. Never forget that I am your grandfather. Obey my commands and never refuse to follow them.” This the newly created pair promised to do.

An interesting variant of ordinary creation-myths occurs in southeastern Borneo. Here the two wonder-trees on the new-formed earth mated and produced an egg, from which a phantom maiden came. A divine being descended to earth, and seeing the lifeless and intangible character of the maiden, went to get what was necessary to give her life and substance; but while he was away another deity became active, and gathering earth for her body, rain for her blood, and wind for her breath, made the beautiful shade alive and tangible. When the first deity returned and discovered what had happened, ‘in anger he broke the vessel that he had brought; and the water of life which it contained flew in every direction and watered all plants, which thus acquired the power of springing up after having been cut down; but man did not receive any of the precious fluid and so failed to acquire immortality. The use of stone as a material, instead of earth, occurs among the Toradja in Celebes.’°’ The heaven father and earth mother having made two stone figures, one male and one female, the heaven deity returned to the skies to procure the breath of immortality with which to infuse life into the images; but in his absence the wind blew into them and vivified them, and on this account man is mortal. Another version 102 omits the attempt to secure immortality. A somewhat different form of origin-myth describes a series of attempts at creation in which different materials are tried, the first trials being failures, although success is finally achieved. Thus the Dyaks of the Baram and Rejang district in Borneo say that after the two birds, Iri and Ringgon, had formed the earth, plants, and animals they decided to create man. “At first, they made him of clay, but when he was dried he could neither speak nor move, which provoked them, and they ran at him angrily; so frightened was he that he fell backward and broke all to pieces. The next man they made was of hard wood, but he, also, was utterly stupid, and absolutely good for nothing. Then the two birds searched carefully for a good material, and eventually selected the wood of the tree known as Kumpong, which has a strong fibre and exudes a quantity of deep red sap, whenever it is cut. Out of this tree they fashioned a man and a woman, and were so well pleased with this achievement that they rested for a long while, and admired their handiwork. Then they decided to continue creating more men; they re-turned to the Kumpong tree, but they had entirely forgotten their original pattern, and how they executed it, and they were therefore able only to make very inferior creatures, which became the ancestors of the Maias (the Orang Utan) and monkeys.”

A similar tale is found among the Iban and Sakarram Dyaks, only reversing the order, so that after twice failing to make man from wood, the birds succeeded at the third trial when they used clay. Farther north, among the Dusun of British North Borneo, the first two beings “made a stone in the shape of a man but the stone could not talk, so they made a wooden figure and when it was made it talked, though not long after it became worn out and rotten; afterwards they made a man of earth, and the people are descended from this till the present day.” The Bilan of Mindanao 107 have a similar tale. After the world had been formed and was habitable, one of the deities said, “Of what use is land without people?” So the others said, “Let us make wax into people,” and they did so; but when they put the wax near the fire, it melted. Seeing that they could not create man that way, they next decided to form him out of dirt, and Melu and Finuweigh began the task. All went well until they were ready to make the nose, when Finuweigh, who was shaping this part, put it on upside down, only to have Melu tell him that people would drown if he left it that way, for the rain would run into it. At this Finuweigh became very angry and refused to change it, but when he turned his back, Melu seized the nose quickly and turned it as it now is; and one may still see where, in his haste, he pressed his fingers at the root. Another account says that the images made of earth were vivified by whipping them. In a few cases we find that man was supposed to have been made of other materials. Thus the Ata in Mindanao declare 109 that grass was the substance used, whereas the Igorot in Luzon say 110 that the ancestors of all others than themselves were made from pairs of reeds. In Nias one version states that man was formed from the fruits or buds of the tree which grew from the heart of one of the earliest beings, while various gods developed from the buds on the upper part of the tree. “When these two lowest fruits were still very small, Latoere said to Barasi-loeloe and Balioe, `The lowest fruits are mine. But Balioe answered, `See, then, if you can make man of them. If you can do that, they belong to you; otherwise, not.’ Latoere being unable to form men from them, Lowalangi sent Barasi-loeloe thither; but he could shape nothing more than the bodies of men, although he made one male and one female. Then Lowalangi took a certain weight of wind, gave it to Balioe, and said, `Put all of this in the mouth of the image for a soul. If it absorbs all of it, man will attain to a long life; otherwise, he will die sooner, just in pro-portion to the amount which is left over of the soul that is offered him.’ Balioe did what Lowalangi had told him, and then he gave the people names.” In a few instances still other substances are said to have been used from which to make man.

 

ROCKS, SWEAT BRED MAN: CELEBES, SUMATRA, FORMOSA MYTHOS December 16, 2013

ROCKS, SWEAT BRED MAN: CELEBES, SUMATRA, FORMOSA MYTHOS

Another tale of the origin of mankind from eggs is found among the Battak of Sumatra. In Celebes we have already seen how the first divine being was born miraculously from the rock or from the sweat which formed upon it; and an actual origin of mankind from a rock, which split open of itself, appears in Formosa.”

REFLECTION

 

Formosa (Taiwan) was once predominantly populated by Malay ethnicities, Malays who shared folklore themes with many of their neighbor cultures such as Sumatra (Battaks) and Celebes.

 

As the summary says, ‘the divine being was born miraculously from the rock or from the sweat which formed upon it’. Now that has a double meaning: the ‘rock’ that signifies the earth element and all the 100+ matter elements known in today’s chemistry, and ‘sweat’ that signifies the ‘sweat-born’ humans of the early ‘root races’.

 

In the Formosa version, the rock ‘split open of itself’ reveals that even the earth and its minerals are endowed with consciousness no matter how feeble this seems to us. The 1st Evolutionary Round is the mineral phase which took many hundreds of millions of years. Without this phase, the 2nd Round of vegetative life and the 3rd Round of animal life couldn’t have evolved. Such rounds thus showing capacity for life-bearing, the 4th Round was made possible as the devic-man phase.

 

The ‘divine’ was born from the ‘rock’ or ‘sweat-born’ is surely a tough nut to crack. It could be one way of articulating the Law of Evolution: that a human can become Divine in the distant future by passing first through the mineral, vegetative, animal, devic-man, and onwards till divinity is first experienced when one attains moksha or Self-realization through Yoga (union).

 

The greater that divinity will be ensured when one mutates to a Mahatma, the phase of spiritual perfection. At that stage, the route to Dhyan Chohan becomes clearer, the route when one becomes a living Deity or Avatar (manifestation of God). At the end of the Manvantara, the man-turned-divine being is ensured of re-integration with Godhead yet retaining his/her identity, hence ensuring his/her return as a creator deity or archangel in the next Manvantara (great cycle of life).

FEEBLE MIND HUMANS IN MALAY MYTHOS December 12, 2013

FEEBLE MIND HUMANS IN MALAY MYTHOS

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

Source: http://www.oldandsold.com/articles29/mythology-12.shtml

Another version speaks of only two eggs, from which a human pair came forth and bore seven sons and seven daughters, who were, however, without life. At the command of the deity the husband went to get for them the germs of life, bidding his wife in his absence on no account to stir outside her mosquito-curtains; but she failed to obey, and as she looked out a blast of wind came and blew into the children, so that they breathed and became alive; whence man is mortal, and wind (or breath) is his only life….

REFLECTION

 

This is another Malayan version of the egg-laying humans of pre-sexually procreating Lemurians. Among early humans, both male and female aspects were in one individual, though during those times their souls were collective souls yet. Individuated souls only came later, which in latter mystical circles are called ‘soul fragments’.

 

‘7 sons and 7 daughters’ echo exactly the Septenary Law as applied to human Evolutes: 7 sub-races for each of the 7 ‘root-races’ of man (from manu or thinking being). The ‘deity’ signifies all the creator beings—Elohim, elemental & devic hierarchs (ascended beings in stature), evolved extra-terrestrials known as ‘solar pitris’ and ‘lunar pitris’—represented in the singular.

 

‘A blast of wind came and blew into the children’ signifies the Breath archetype or Life-Force. ‘So that they breathed and became alive’ has a double meaning:

(a) the feeble minded early humans whose mental faculties were indeed so weak (it took the 5th ‘root race’ of Aryans to perfect mental development) even if relatively they were still strong in Spirit; and,

(b) the failed experiments on many species-formation, experiments that were endowed with souls (collective souls) that at the beginning could have been de-programmed or erased, till finally the experiments succeeded.  

 

That is, there were indeed human experiments that failed to move, so it took more experiments by the ‘solar pitris’ and ‘lunar pitris’ (pitris = fathers) before successes were achieved. In our present lingo, the pitris are the extraterrestrials notably the evolved ones, though we admit to the role of dense aliens of cold-blooded reptilian/lizard origins that also intervened in Terrans’ evolution.

FAILED BREEDING EXPERIMENTS, REPTILOIDS, OVIPAROUS MAN IN BORNEO TALE December 10, 2013

FAILED BREEDING EXPERIMENTS, REPTILOIDS, OVIPAROUS MAN IN BORNEO TALE

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

Source: http://www.oldandsold.com/articles29/mythology-12.shtml

…From southeastern Borneo comes a different tale. After the world had been made by spreading earth on the head of the great serpent which swam in the primeval sea, a deity descended upon it and discovered seven eggs formed of earth. Taking two of these, he found in one a man, and in the other a woman, but both lifeless; whereupon, returning to the upper world, he asked the creator for breath, that the pair might become alive. While he was gone upon his errand, however, another deity came down and blew into the mouths of the two lifeless forms and vivified them, so that when the first deity returned, he found himself forestalled, and man-kind, which he had intended to make immortal, was now subject to decay and death. …

REFLECTION

This myth is a reproduction of related myths about the involvement of the ‘great serpent’ (Reptiloid extraterrestrials) which ‘swam in the primeval sea’ (resided in the astral plane, notably the mid- and upper astral).

Amusingly, this mythos speaks of ‘seven eggs formed of earth’. The line signifies that during the oviparous or egg-laying phase of human evolution (1st, 2nd, 3rd sub-races of Lemurians), the Reptiloid species began to intervene in the genetics of Terrans. Note that Terrans then were still in the astral dimension.

That the eggs were lifeless is evidence of the failed experiments in the early phases when many extraterrestrial species from different star systems intervened. The ‘breath’ signifies the Life-Force, without which sentient life cannot be possible.

As the myth reveals, while the Reptiloids could have been out for some errands, another group of extraterrestrials, perhaps the evolved ones, proceeded with their experimentations on ‘two eggs’. This now looks like the XX genes of males (first ‘egg’) and the XY for females (second ‘egg’), which when put together begins the life of a fetus. A 2-strand DNA suggested, which means mankind on the descent phase of evolution—also termed the devolution phase.

 

Of course, in the devolution to physical plane life, mankind’s lifespan eventually narrowed to just decades long, thus the decay and mortal life. Contrast that to the early humans who didn’t even need to reincarnate, as they were able to evolve back to the higher dimensions with just one embodiment down the surface, after living for thousands of years.

OVIPAROUS LEMURIANS IN FILIPINO MYTH

Quite widely distributed, on the other hand, is the belief that mankind originated from eggs. In the Philippines a bird laid two eggs, one at the source of a river and one at its mouth, a woman coming from the first and a man from the second. For long years the man lived alone, until one day when he was bathing, a long hair, floating in the water, entangled his legs so that he reached the bank with difficulty. Examining the hair, he at once determined to find its owner, and so travelled upstream until he met the woman, whom he then married.

 

REFLECTION

 

The mythos is a capsule version of the Limokon creation myth. As discussed in an earlier article, the myth does highlight the egg-laying or oviparous phase in human evolution. Anthropogenesis is the occult term used for human evolution in divine wisdom or Theos Sophia.

 

The evolution of humans from the shadowy, etheric Pangeans to the oviparous Lemurians, took many eons to pass. The time element counted by the millions of years, as etheric humans first appeared over 100 million years ago. The sexed humans, who procreated as Man and Woman in union, appeared roughly 16-18 million years ago.

 

It coincides with the coming of Ancient of Days, who begged that humans be allowed to reincarnate and procreate sexually, so that they won’t ever again have sex and generate monstrosities of offsprings with animals. Yes, Companions in Light, the early humans did experiment on sexing with animals by over-shadowing them and using the animal vehicles (bodies) to have sex. In the process, many human souls were trapped in the monstrosities they created.

 

That was when Sanat Kumara, or Ancient of Days, decided to plea for Terrans, and proposed that reincarnation be the law for them. Thus approved by the Council of 24 Elders, Sanat Kumara came to Earth, bringing along 6 other Kumaras via Venus, and helped Terrans in bringing them back to the Almighty Providence through re-incarnation, Twinflame mating, sexual procreation, and dharma.

 

As the myth suggests, Man and Woman lived separately for a long long time, which signifies the eons it took for hermaphroditic and oviparous humans to exist. The ‘hair’ of the woman signifies the ‘electric’ qualities inherent in the Femine, which matches with the ‘magnetic’ qualities of the Male. The Law of Duality/Polarity once again embedded and revealed in a Malayan (Filipino) myth.

LEMURIA & ANTHROPOGENESIS IN TAGALOG CREATION MYTHOS

The Creation Story – Tagalog

When the world first began there was no land, but only the sea and the sky, and between them was a kite (a bird something like a hawk). One day the bird which had nowhere to light grew tired of flying about, so she stirred up the sea until it threw its waters against the sky. The sky, in order to restrain the sea, showered upon it many islands until it could no longer rise, but ran back and forth. Then the sky ordered the kite to light on one of the islands to build her nest, and to leave the sea and the sky in peace.

Now at this time the land breeze and the sea breeze were married, and they had a child which was a bamboo. One day when this bamboo was floating about on the water, it struck the feet of the kite which was on the beach. The bird, angry that anything should strike it, pecked at the bamboo, and out of one section came a man and from the other a woman.

Then the earthquake called on all the birds and fish to see what should be done with these two, and it was decided that they should marry. Many children were born to the couple, and from them came all the different races of people.

After a while the parents grew very tired of having so many idle and useless children around, and they wished to be rid of them, but they knew of no place to send them to. Time went on and the children became so numerous that the parents enjoyed no peace. One day, in desperation, the father seized a stick and began beating them on all sides.

This so frightened the children that they fled in different directions, seeking hidden rooms in the house — some concealed themselves in the walls, some ran outside, while others hid in the fireplace, and several fled to the sea.

Now it happened that those who went into the hidden rooms of the house later became the chiefs of the islands; and those who concealed themselves in the walls became slaves. Those who ran outside were free men; and those who hid in the fireplace became negroes; while those who fled to the sea were gone many years, and when their children came back they were the white people.

REFLECTION

 

I already wrote articles about the Tagalog creation mythos, which I will reprint in this piece. In the version above, the ‘kite’ is mentioned as the bird involved in the making of humans, while is another version it was the ‘dove’. A slight difference, although the Dove is more potent a symbol as signifier of the Father Deity.

TAGALOG CREATION MYTH: SCIENCE OF BIRTHING REVEALED

 

Erle Frayne D. Argonza / Ra

 

Let me bring you another folk lore from the Malays: the creation myth of the Tagalogs. Tagalogs are the ethnic groups of Luzon island in the Philippines, from whose dialect came forth the foundations of the national language of Filipino.

 

Tagalog is a coinage of Taga Ilog, literally meaning “from the river.” The river in the term is a referent for the hydrological societies that pervaded the Philippine archipelago prior to the advent of western imperialism and colonialism.

 

A nation richly endowed with folklore, with myths and legends, the Philippines counts among its popular lores the myth of ‘Malakas and Maganda’. Literally, it translates as ‘myth of Strong (Malakas) and Beautiful (Maganda).’

 

The myth goes that there was once a bamboo floating listlessly by the oceans. The bamboo finally ceased to float as it landed on a coast in the Philippines. As it did so, a white dove flying above descended on the bamboo and pecked it accordingly. The bamboo then split, and out came Malakas and Maganda. The Filipinos are their descendants.

 

A very ancient narrative, the mythos is, to my mind, a repository of a science that was already known in the ancient times: the science of birthing. Such a science was eventually lost, as the end of the ice age inundated land masses, sunk continental chunks of lands, and led to a dark age of sorts.

 

Despite the retreat of civilization after the end of the last glacial period, the survivors found ample means to preserve the knowledge and information that they could preserve through folklore (myths & legends). Let’s take the signifiers one by one.

 

  • Let’s take the case of the sea/ocean first of all. The water in the seas is a signifier for the amniotic fluid inside the mother’s womb. In the womb is, of course, the ovum which is a facility for birthing.

 

  • The bamboo, with its nodes, long and pliant, is signifier for the DNA/genes. It is unimaginable to create humans without the genetic vehicle for their making, the vehicle being no other than the DNA.   

 

  • The dove is a bird. The bird is signifier for ‘desire’ and the phallus as well. Both desire and phallus are key biological facilities in creating life forms. The bird pecking the bamboo signifies the procreation act.

 

  • From inside the bamboo, one presumably finds the masculine (Malakas) and feminine (Maganda) elements or identities. Which is what it is: both masculine and feminine genes are already inherently present in the DNA.

 

  • Having both a Malakas (masculine) and a Maganda (feminine) in one space, co-equal, refers to the law of duality. The DNA has two (2) strands, gender has two identities (male, female), and so on.

 

  • The soil, as indicated by the coast, signifies the elements of the Earth. All such elements are present in the human body. Without such elements, without biological matter containing such elements, babies can’t be produced. Soil is matter, from the Latin word ‘mater’ or matter, as it is also the feminine element (mother, mater).

 

That Malakas and Maganda simultaneously came out together from the same bamboo signifies the gender equality among the ancient Malays. Patriarchy was alien to the Malays, who were among the last subraces of the Atlantean ‘root race’ to evolve in history.

 

Patriarchy was largely imposed from the outside: from Islam it was imposed upon southern Filipinos, from Christianity unto Northern Filipinos. Indians and Chinese also migrated to the islands, introducing their brand of patriarchy.

 

Yet no matter how much tons of debris may have buried the ancient ways of the Tagalogs/Filipinos, they were not totally buried after all. One only needs to mine their folklores, of which volumes of documentation works were already published, to be able to extract and unveil hidden truths.

 

As I’ve been saying all along, the contributions of Malays to the Teaching (‘God’s Word, higher mysteries) are found more in their folklores rather than their scriptures. Malayan scriptures are Islamic, Buddhist, and Christian, or impositions from outside. Folklores are originally their creative production, and are repositories of High Knowledge and wisdom. Such a thesis is exemplified by the Tagalog creation myth.

TAGALOG CREATION MYTH: LEMURIAN & COSMIC REVELATIONS

 

Erle Frayne D. Argonza / Ra

 

Magandang araw! Good day! Buenos dias!

 

This time around, I’ll share to you the cosmic-galactic facet of the Tagalog creation myth. As I’ve already elaborated elsewhere, the Malays (of whom Tagalogs form a part of) were created by a cross-galactic race (light-skinned) from out of the Lemurian descendants (dark-skinned), thus producing a tanned race that was lighter than the Lemurians.

 

Being a new breed then of Pacificians (from the Pacific Ocean), the Malays belonged squarely to the last races of the Atlantean ‘root race’ (see H.P. Blavatsky’s Secret Doctrine). They were bred almost at the same time as the White race that was a hybrid of light-skinned cross-galactic humans and the red-skinned Atlanteans.

 

To go back to the Tagalog creation myth, let me quote from a previous article: “The myth goes that there was once a bamboo floating listlessly by the oceans. The bamboo finally ceased to float as it landed on a coast in the Philippines. As it did so, a white dove flying above descended on the bamboo and pecked it accordingly. The bamboo then split, and out came Malakas and Maganda. The Filipinos are their descendants.” (See “Tagalog Creation Myth: Science of Birthing Revealed.”)

 

That being the synopsis of the mythos, let me re-stress that it is a coded message about the birthing of the Tagalogs/Malays. This time, the cosmic-galactic facet will be taken as the paradigm base. Let me take up the signifiers (code items) one by one:

 

  • Ocean/sea mystically refers to the unconscious or ‘causal plane’ element. That was where the ‘bamboo’ came from, to note. It means the awareness level of the Malays and their breeders corresponded to that level (7th Density at least) before the descent of humanity to its low 3rd Density level today.

 

  • Ocean also indicates the mass inundation of the Earth after the end of the glacial period. The last of Lemuria’s subcontinents sank across time as the ice caps melted and elevated the seawaters to much higher levels.

 

  • The ‘bamboo’ is referent for DNA as a whole, which is almost similar with the previous interpretation. This time though, note that DNA in the higher dimension is different, as it has more strands (12) than biological DNA (2).

 

  • Inside the bamboo are the two prospect gender, male and female. The Yin and Yang. Duality in One. Indeed, even the soul of a human has both masculine and feminine elements. So is the DNA, whether higher or lower dimension type.

 

  • Bamboo floating in the ocean/seas also signifies the attempts by the survivors of the post-glacial deluge to survive via floaters. Much like Noah’s floater. Noah was in fact of Lemurian roots, and produced a branch of tribes that would settle later in Western Asia. The same floaters brought survivors to lands that emerged after the floods receded, lands in the Pacific Ocean (including the Philippines).

 

  • From the ocean/seas, it landed in the coast. Soil signifies matter, as well as the maternal element (matter is Latin ‘mater’ or mother). It also signifies the physical plane, with the element of solidity (earth element) is dominantly marked.

 

  • A dove, white in hue, signifies the Galactic humans and their space vehicle. The myth reveals that the same Galactic breeders experimented on a new race. Quite observably, the same breeders or ‘creators’ used the species of humans already present then, who birthed through sexual procreation means (male and female in sexual intercourse). The earlier Lemurians were oviparous (egg-laying), while the latter were sexual in pro-creation.

 

  • The dove landed on the shores, as one can see. This means the Galactic creators, who came from the Air above (air is 6th Density or mental plane), had to descend to a lower dimension to be able to breed the Malays. Terrans were originally 5th Density in habitat, so it makes sense that the light-hued creators had to descend at least one Density lower from their domain.

 

  • The dove pecked the bamboo. This could mean that the creator race was also sexual in breeding or sort of, and it is possible that they actually pro-created with the Lemurian descendants. Otherwise, the new breed could have been created through laboratory means, which could also be possible.

 

  • Malakas and Maganda came out of the bamboo. Obviously, two (2) genders were involved as products of the breeding. And both of the genders were involved in birthing the ancient Tagalogs/Malays, who would later be among the chief tribes of the Filipino nation.

 

The Lemurians could have exercised gender equality, as indicated by the mythos. From the Lemurian descendants to the proto-Malays, the same cultural trait was disseminated. When the Moslems and Spaniards arrived in the islands, they discovered the prevalence of such a sociocultural trait among the islanders.

 

In closing, let me re-echo a thesis declared in a previous article: “As I’ve been saying all along, the contributions of Malays to the Teaching (‘God’s Word, higher mysteries) are found more in their folklores rather than their scriptures. Malayan scriptures are Islamic, Buddhist, and Christian, or impositions from outside. Folklores are originally their creative production, and are repositories of High Knowledge and wisdom. Such a thesis is exemplified by the Tagalog creation myth.” (See “Tagalog Creation Myth: Science of Birthing Revealed.”)

DOVE MAKES EGG-LAYING LEMURIANS: ALMIGHTY FATHER ALLUDED IN LIMOKON MYTH December 2, 2013

DOVE MAKES EGG-LAYING LEMURIANS: ALMIGHTY FATHER ALLUDED IN LIMOKON MYTH

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

The Children of the Limokon – Mandaya (Mindanao)

In the very early days before there were any people on the earth, the limokon (a kind of dove ) were very powerful and could talk like men though they looked like birds. One limokon laid two eggs, one at the mouth of the Mayo River and one farther up its course. After some time these eggs hatched, and the one at the mouth of the river became a man, while the other became a woman.

The man lived alone on the bank of the river for a long time, but he was very lonely and wished many times for a companion. One day when he was crossing the river something was swept against his legs with such force that it nearly caused him to drown. On examining it, he found that it was a hair, and he determined to go up the river and find whence it came. He traveled up the stream, looking on both banks, until finally he found the woman, and he was very happy to think that at last he could have a companion.

They were married and had many children, who are the Mandaya still living along the Mayo River.

REFLECTION

 

The myth is one of the rare folklore narratives that use the ‘dove’ as metaphor for creation/evolution of humans. As already mentioned earlier, esoteric knowledge contends that the ‘dove’ is an archetype for the Father. Let it be known to all, that upon my ascension in 2008, the Dove appeared many times to ensure me of the Presence of the Almighty Providence, so near that you could almost touch it as it hovers in front of you.

 

To go on, the mythos says ‘limokon were very powerful and could talk like men’. This line revealed the prevalence of an ancient language known to the creator deities, a language that was affirmed in the book Keys of Enoch by J.J.Hurtak. It is a ‘fiery’ language, the ‘fiery’ or ‘fire’ signifying the causal plane (also called ‘higher mental’ plane) that is governed by the fire element.

 

The Dove as Father archetype is effervescent yet one can distinguish its features amid the dazzling Light. That effervescence coincides with the ‘fiery’ feature of the divine language as mentioned above. [Note: Only to an Ascended Master can the Father be seen in archetypal form.]

 

The ‘egg’ in the myth reveals the egg-laying way of procreation by the early Lemurians, notably the 1st, 2md, and 3rd sub-races. Those Lemurians were oviparous, their souls androgynous. The man looking for the woman upstream suggests that it took eons before the oviparous Lemurians evolved to the sexual Lemurians whose souls were either of male or female polarity (beginnings of Twinflame mates).

 

The ‘river’ is a water body, of the water element, which signifies that the early to mid-Lemurians were still in the astral-etheric plane or 2nd plane. The astral plane is governed by the water element. Being in that plane means Earth was then of higher vibratory frequency than it is today. That plane other esoteric circles call the 4th dimension.
