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.

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….



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.

…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. …


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.

Origin –  Bagobo (Mindanao)

In the beginning there lived one man and one woman, Toglai and Toglibon. Their first children were a boy and a girl. When they were old enough, the boy and the girl went far away across the waters seeking a good place to live in. Nothing more was heard of them until their children, the Spaniards and Americans, came back. After the first boy and girl left, other children were born to the couple; but they all remained at Cibolan on Mount Apo with their parents, until Toglai and Toglibon died and became spirits. Soon after that there came a great drought which lasted for three years. All the waters dried up, so that there were no rivers, and no plants could live.

“Surely,” said the people, “Manama is punishing us, and we must go elsewhere to find food and a place to dwell in.”

So they started out. Two went in the direction of the sunset, carrying with them stones from Cibolan River. After a long journey they reached a place where were broad fields of cogon grass and an abundance of water, and there they made their home. Their children still live in that place and are called Magindanau, because of the stones which the couple carried when they left Cibolan.

Two children of Toglai and Toglibon went to the south, seeking a home, and they carried with them women’s baskets (baraan). When they found a good spot, they settled down. Their descendants, still dwelling at that place, are called Baraan or Bilaan, because of the women’s baskets.

So two by two the children of the first couple left the land of their birth. In the place where each settled a new people developed, and thus it came about that all the tribes in the world received their names from things that the people carried out of Cibolan, or from the places where they settled.

All the children left Mount Apo save two (a boy and a girl), whom hunger and thirst had made too weak to travel. One day when they were about to die the boy crawled out to the field to see if there was one living thing, and to his surprise he found a stalk of sugarcane growing lustily. He eagerly cut it, and enough water came out to refresh him and his sister until the rains came. Because of this, their children are called Bagobo.


The narrative already begins with the time of the mid-Lemurian races when sexual procreation became the mode or reproducing humans. This was the first over-arching context of twinflame soul aspects that would search for each other as husband and wife in the physical plane.

Toglia & Toglibon are the equivalents of the Adam & Eve in Semitic mythos. Adam was another version for Edoma or Adoma, that subcontinent of Mu where sexed humans first appeared. Toglia & Toglibon bore a ‘girl & boy’ who migrated to other lands across the vast sea (ocean) and birthed other races—signifies the next sub-races that gave birth to the subsequent ‘root-races’ of Atlanteans and Caucasian Aryans.

Toglia & Toglibon bore many other children signifies the evolution of other sub-races and constituent racial families of Lemurians and onwards to their offshoot races of Malays who were among the last Lemuro-Atlanteans in the 4th ‘root race’ eons.

‘Their children, the Spaniards and Americans, came back’ is as factual as it is: Caucasian Aryans evolved at a latter historical epoch, even as the term ‘Aryan’ has come to generically refer to the present ‘root race’. Scions of the 4th ‘root races’ have become Aryanized in psyche, which stresses the development of the mental or 3rd body faculties.

Thus genealogically, the Lemurians/Mu gave birth to the Atlanteans, as the Atlanteans in turn bred the Aryans among whose racial families are the Indo-Europeans. The Kelts were among the last sub-races of Atlantis, and thus the first of the Aryans, among whose tribes were the Iberians (Spaniards were Iberians). The Teutons were among the mid-to-latter Aryan races, among whose scions were the AngloSaxons (Americans included).

How the Moon and the Stars Came to Be – Bukidnon (Mindanao)

One day in the times when the sky was close to the ground a spinster went out to pound rice. Before she began her work, she took off the beads from around her neck and the comb from her hair, and hung them on the sky, which at that time looked like coral rock.

Then she began working, and each time that she raised her pestle into the air it struck the sky. For some time she pounded the rice, and then she raised the pestle so high that it struck the sky very hard.

Immediately the sky began to rise, and it went up so far that she lost her ornaments. Never did they come down, for the comb became the moon and the beads are the stars that are scattered about.



‘When the sky was close to the ground’ speaks of the eons when the cooling Earth was of higher vibratory frequency than it is today, thus rendering it nearer to the Great Central Sun or God Almighty. It wasn’t even a part of the sun yet, and could have freely floated in space prior to its gravitation to Sol whence its orbit came to being.


The ‘spinster’ is the folks’ idea of conserving ancient truths about creator deities who were collectively identified in the Female gender. The space-domain ‘looked like coral rock’, signifying the spread of matter across the vast expanses of the expanding universe as part of the Manvantara or great cycle of life.


‘Coral rock’ is an embed of the principles of solidity (rock is solid) and liquidity (corals come from the sea), or earth and water elements. ‘Coral’ is a species of life that thrives on water, so it is a good archetype for vegetative & animal species then evolving when Terra was still in higher dimension.  


‘She pounded the rice’, the pounding thus pushing the sky further from where the spinster stood—this signifies the further expansion processes as matter and Divine Light continued to fill up the void. The creation of the material planes—the causal, then the mental, then the astral, till finally the physical planes, in that order—was suggested here.


‘Comb became the moon’ and ‘beads are the stars’ is of course an embed of the ancient wisdom’s truths about the creator deities’ galvanization of solar systems and satellites signified by moon. The usage of personal body ornaments such as ‘comb’ and ‘beads’ surely renders the narrative very interesting and amusing.

Erle Frayne D. Argonza / Ra


Among some Filipino ethnicities reins the belief in the creation deity Captan. In their version of cosmogony, Captan is synonymous if not identical to Brahma who is deity of the physical universe.


Maguayan and scions seem to coincide with the Elohim as revealed by divine wisdom or Theos Sophia. The Elohim assisted Lord Brahma in creating objective worlds as vehicles for subjective life-forms to evolve and grow, while the Elohim were assisted by hierarchs of the elementals and divas.


The creation of the objective conditions for many life forms to evolve, beginning with the mineral and onwards to the vegetative, then onwards to the animal, till finally the phase of devic-man was achieved, was also depicted.


Mankind was projected as having appeared from out of a bamboo. Man and Woman came out of the bamboo together—which signifies the tracing of humans from the time sexing was the mode of procreation (mid-Lemurian). The Twinflame principle of splitting androgynous souls into male and female polarities were clearly depicted. Accordingly, Sicalac was the male while Sicabay was the female, the ancestors of mankind—akin to the Adam & Eve of Semitic anthropogenesis.


The bamboo is signifier of earth element, and earth contains all of the 100+ elements known in chemistry as constituting matter. Bamboo, which has nodules, also signifies the genes that are structured in the vogue of having nodules separating DNA/RNA embeds.




How the World Was Made

This is the ancient Filipino account of the creation.

Thousands of years ago there was no land nor sun nor moon nor stars, and the world was only a great sea of water, above which stretched the sky. The water was the kingdom of the god Maguayan, and the sky was ruled by the great god Captan.

Maguayan had a daughter called Lidagat, the sea, and Captan had a son known as Lihangin, the wind. The gods agreed to the marriage of their children, so the sea became the bride of the wind.

Three sons and a daughter were born to them. The sons were called Licalibutan, Liadlao, and Libulan; and the daughter received the name of Lisuga.

Licalibutan had a body of rock and was strong and brave; Liadlao was formed of gold and was always happy; Libulan was made of copper and was weak and timid; and the beautiful Lisuga had a body of pure silver and was sweet and gentle. Their parents were very fond of them, and nothing was wanting to make them happy.

After a time Lihangin died and left the control of the winds to his eldest son Licalibutan. The faithful wife Lidagat soon followed her husband, and the children, now grown up, were left without father or mother. However, their grandfathers, Captan and Maguayan, took care of them and guarded them from all evil.

After a time, Licalibutan, proud of his power over the winds, resolved to gain more power, and asked his brothers to join him in an attack on Captan in the sky above. At first they refused; but when Licalibutan became angry with them, the amiable Liadlao, not wishing to offend his brother, agreed to help. Then together they induced the timid Libulan to join in the plan.

When all was ready the three brothers rushed at the sky, but they could not beat down the gates of steel that guarded the entrance. Then Licalibutan let loose the strongest winds and blew the bars in every direction. The brothers rushed into the opening, but were met by the angry god Captan. So terrible did he look that they turned and ran in terror; but Captan, furious at the destruction of his gates, sent three bolts of lightning after them.

The first struck the copper Libulan and melted him into a ball. The second struck the golden Liadlao, and he too was melted. The third bolt struck Licalibutan, and his rocky body broke into many pieces and fell into the sea. So huge was he that parts of his body stuck out above the water and became what is known as land.

In the meantime the gentle Lisuga had missed her brothers and started to look for them. She went toward the sky, but as she approached the broken gates, Captan, blind with anger, struck her too with lightning, and her silver body broke into thousands of pieces.

Captan then came down from the sky and tore the sea apart, calling on Maguayan to come to him and accusing him of ordering the attack on the sky. Soon Maguayan appeared and answered that he knew nothing of the plot as he had been asleep far down in the sea.

After a time he succeeded in calming the angry Captan. Together they wept at the loss of their grandchildren, especially the gentle and beautiful Lisuga; but with all their power they could not restore the dead to life. However, they gave to each body a beautiful light that will shine forever.

And so it was that golden Liadlao became the sun, and copper Libulan the moon, while the thousands of pieces of silver Lisuga shine as the stars of heaven. To wicked Licalibutan the gods gave no light, but resolved to make his body support a new race of people. So Captan gave Maguayan a seed, and he planted it on the land, which, as you will remember, was part of Licalibutan’s huge body.

Soon a bamboo tree grew up, and from the hollow of one of its branches a man and a woman came out. The man’s name was Sicalac, and the woman was called Sicabay. They were the parents of the human race. Their first child was a son whom they called Libo; afterwards they had a daughter who was known as Saman. Pandaguan was a younger son and he had a son called Arion.

Pandaguan was very clever and invented a trap to catch fish. The very first thing he caught was a huge shark. When he brought it to land, it looked so great and fierce that he thought it was surely a god, and he at once ordered his people to worship it. Soon all gathered around and began to sing and pray to the shark. Suddenly the sky and sea opened, and the gods came out and ordered Pandaguan to throw the shark back into the sea and to worship none but them.

All were afraid except Pandaguan. He grew very bold and answered that the shark was as big as the gods, and that since he had been able to overpower it he would also be able to conquer the gods. Then Captan, hearing this, struck Pandaguan with a small thunderbolt, for he did not wish to kill him but merely to teach him a lesson. Then he and Maguayan decided to punish these people by scattering them over the earth, so they carried some to one land and some to another. Many children were afterwards born, and thus the earth became inhabited in all parts.

Pandaguan did not die. After lying on the ground for thirty days he regained his strength, but his body was blackened from the lightning, and all his descendants ever since that day have been black.

His first son, Arion, was taken north, but as he had been born before his father’s punishment he did not lose his color, and all his people therefore are white.

Libo and Saman were carried south, where the hot sun scorched their bodies and caused all their descendants to be of a brown color.

A son of Saman and a daughter of Sicalac were carried east, where the land at first was so lacking in food that they were compelled to eat clay. On this account their children and their children’s children have always been yellow in color.

And so the world came to be made and peopled. The sun and moon shine in the sky, and the beautiful stars light up the night. All over the land, on the body of the envious Licalibutan, the children of’ Sicalac and Sicabay have grown great in numbers. May they live forever in peace and brotherly love!

The cosmogonic myths thus far discussed are derived from western and central Indonesia; and we may now turn to the eastern portion of this area, where another type appears, albeit the available material is exceedingly scanty. Indeed, of true myth-material we have only fragments from the small islands north-east of Timor (the Sermata and Leti Islands).” These seem to indicate a belief in a sky-world and a world below, of whose origins, however, nothing is said.” On the other hand, it may be noted that in all of the islands, from and including Timor to the Kei Islands, there is a belief in a male deity living in the sky and associated chiefly with the sun, and a female deity dwelling in or regarded as one with the earth, these being described as husband and wife, and being supposed to mate annually at the time of the monsoon, while it was also believed that the sky once was closer to the earth. In Ceram, Buru, and Amboina, the definiteness of this concept of the heaven father and earth mother becomes clearer; but we have no myths, not even fragments, regarding them. In view of the almost total lack of cosmogonic myth material from this region, as well as from Halmahera and the other islands of the Moluccas, it is premature to draw any conclusions from the resemblance of this concept to the similar, but much more highly developed, ideas in Polynesia; yet it is difficult to avoid the impression that the strength of the belief here in the extreme eastern portion of Indonesia, which is geographically nearest to the Polynesian area, and its apparent absence elsewhere farther west, are significant. Further material, however, alone can settle the question.



The ‘sky-world’ and the ‘world below’ reflect the synergy of the spiritual dimensions (‘sky-world’) and the material dimensions (‘world below’). The bifurcation of reality into the spiritual and material indicates right away the Law of Duality/Polarity, one of the cosmic laws as per Theos Sophias’ teachings.


‘Of whose origins, however, nothing is said’ signifies the state of silence that had swept mankind about cosmogony and anthropogenesis after the Deluge (end of glacial period/sinking of Poseidonis/Atlantis).


Such a state of mum is counterbalanced, thankfully, by another mythos in which a Male Deity and Female Deity are said to have been involved in creating the Earth and humans. Again, the Law of Duality obtaining. The Male Deity is associated with the Sun, the Above, which signifies the spiritual domains; the Female Deity, with the material domains. Theos Sophia indeed associates the Male Principle with the Idea, the Spirit, while the Feminine Principle signifies materialization, matter, physicality.


Equally revealed are the Solar Logos, Deity of the solar system, which could explain the Male Deity’s association with the Sun. And, the goddess Gaia, Female Deity, who in-dwells in the Earth which Lady Gaia chose as her body.
