I recently went to see the movie Noah starring Russell Crowe and directed by Darren Aronofsky, who has also given us movies such as Requiem for a Dream (2000), Pi (1998) The Fountain (2006) and the Black Swan (2010).
It was an epic piece of cinema and very much in keeping with Aronofsky's style and impact. And since it's almost Easter on planet Earth I thought a biblical movie review of 'ark-like' proportions would go down well, like a bunny's basket of 'chocolate eggs' at the end of Lent.
I love religious 'scripts', and Noah
doesn't disappoint in terms of narratives
gleaned from several sources.
I am not religious, as most of you know, and have no problem with other people believing any of the stories in the 'big book', but, Noah is a 'Lord of the Rings' style movie and the contradictions found in books from Genesis to Malachi are often of 'movie proportions' in my view.
Not least the notion of Adam and Eve
being free from original 'Sin' (a moon God) while dwelling in
the 'perfect garden' - until they go for that I pad, sorry apple.
Adam and Eve are symbols of our human mitochondrial DNA (which is
maternally inherited) and Y chromosome DNA (paternally inherited)
through the X and Y - the 'X' symbolism being a 'hot topic' to
pursue in another review.
Not forgetting a God that supposedly 'loves' us, but also 'loves' to wipe out all that 'he' loves, is another example of some of the absurdities put forward by religions.

In this movie version of the 'original script' we have a passionately 'driven' 'son of the father' (Noah) whose only purpose becomes the will of a 'maniac' God, who has decided that total human genocide is the only way to deal with the 'debauchery and filth' that has become the human species, since the time of Adam.
In fact as the movie progresses Noah's
character changes (along with his appearance) as he becomes more and
more 'obsessed' with fulfilling God's genocidal mission.
Another name for God is the Ancient of Days first seen in the Book of Daniel and in the original Aramaic as Atik Yomin, or in the Greek in the Septuagin.

Right: Brahma is considered as the first God of the Hindu Trinity,

William Blake's Ancient of Days (above left) is the perfect symbolic image of the Demiurge with 'his' 'compass' measuring space and time.
As I have shown in other articles, this 'figure is also Cronos or Saturn. The 'All-Seeing-Eye' and the compass used in Freemasonry is another symbol associated with the Saturn - Cronos - Ancient of Days.
The eye is of the 'watchers',
which I'll come to.
In symbolic terms the 'stories' of 'killing' and 'destruction' prior to Noah's Ark and the deluge itself, are the work of the 'living distortion' known as the Demiurge.
The Gnostics called this God Ahriman, El, Saklas, Samael, Satan or Yahweh - the 'creator' of the 'lower world', associated with matter, flesh, time and more particularly, an imperfect, ephemeral world.
There is no adversary, Yahweh and satan are the same 'force' in different expressions of the Demiurge.
Simply put in movie speak, 'he' is the Architect in The Matrix Movies.
The Architect of
'reality' - The Demiurge
Seth and the bloodline of Noah, relates to Seth/Set of ancient Egypt and can be found in the stories that also talk of slaying his brother Osiris.
The pre-flood world of Lamech and Tubal-Cain in the movie Noah
Noah's Supposed Lineage
Sacrifice, martyrdom and the blood letting of the new covenant was born out of this story and it is the constant theme or 'mark' of a maniac (often Arrogant) God and 'his offspring' (the elite priesthoods) found in religious writings.
Here are a few examples.
Story has it that the bloodline of Noah and the land he occupies is of the descendent of Seth, one of the three sons (Cain, Able and Seth) children of Adam and Eve.
Noah's is a 'hybrid' of human and non-human lineage, which is why he converses with the Watchers in this movie.
Bloodline of the Hybrids
Noah, like his father and grandfather, had supposedly held true to the 'word of God', to Seth, unlike the line of Cain.
In the movie, after killing Lamech Tubal Cain looted his corpse taking the ancient snakeskin, which had been passed down from the time of Adam and Eve. The passing of the snakeskin in the movie is symbolic of this 'hybrid' connection to the Gods.
Those reptilians were in this bloodline from the start you see.
Mathematical data and population genetics for this period also suggest a relatively low level of genetic variation among present-day humans, hence the Eve gene theory.
The University of Oslo showed back in 2006 that modern humans, Homo sapiens, have performed advanced Serpent rituals in Africa for 70,000 years. A bit longer than the dates given in the Bible for the age of the Earth of course, but nonetheless the serpent has been 'influencing' humanity since the time of the Mitochondrial Eve period.
Serpent Worship is not just about the 'Kundalini' and Yoga, etc...
It's also the focus on 'the Gods' for some ancient cultures - the same Gods that taught Homo sapiens how to live with a 'new Earth', its cycles, seasons and 'worship' what seem to be the same Gods 'with different names' all over the world.
This would have been stage 2 of 'installing' a 'new earth' in the Gods' image. An 'off world plan' that would have worked beautifully for an intelligence that wished to 'take over' and totally 'control' a freshly cleansed planet, and leave a hybrid line (the bloodline of Noah) to repopulate the Earth.
Something I'll come back to later.
The long road
On the way, they come upon a group of people recently killed.
Its kind of Mad Max meets The Road at this point in the movie. Moving across what looks like an apocalyptic landscape they adopt a lone survivor, a girl named Ila, who was wounded in the attack, which we later find has made her barren.
Noah and his family are chased by some of Tubal-Cain's men,
but are able to seek refuge by entering what looks like a 'forbidden
zone', the place of the fallen angels known as the Watchers.
In the movie Noah we see the Watchers as fallen angels who in their true form served the creator, prior to the 'fall' but on Earth the Earth itself burdens them, for trying to aid Adam and Eve and therefore in that process became covered in stone.
The reference to heavenly beings called 'Watchers' seems to originate in the book of Daniel 4, where there are three mentions of these beings, as watchers, or 'holy ones', (see verses 10, 20 and 14).
This term 'sons of God' is literally 'sons of Gods' and comes from 'ben ha-elohim', 'sons of the shining ones'. In fact every time the word God is used in the Old Testament it is translated from a word that means Gods, plural; Elohim and Adonai are two examples.
El (Elf, Ellu) is a word that also translates as 'shining One'.
Again in Buddhism they were referred to as the 'snake guardians' of the 'doorways' or portals and these 'portals' are the openings between different worlds - between Heaven and Earth.
'watching' over the Earth in the movie Noah
The Greek word for watchers is egregoroi which literally translates as the 'wakeful'.
The term Grigori, refers to the same beings called Watchers as recorded in the Book of Enoch. It is said that until the mid-2nd century AD, Jewish writing (such as midrashim) can be taken to identify the 'sons of God' as angels (Genesis 6:1 and 4).
The image above shows the Watchers as angels in the movie Noah, before they fell to Earth.
Here is an image I made in 1993 that shows the Watchers as four angelic hosts before the Moon was placed in the Earth's orbit by the forces attributed to Saturn - Satan or the Demiurge.
Here Comes the Moon painted in 1993.
The links to 'fallen angels' are played on in the movie as the watchers 'fell like meteorites' (below) and were encased in matter (stone) and therefore unable to ascend until they died in service to their creator.
I'll come back to the 'stone symbolism' shortly.
The Fantastic Four, who gained superpowers after exposure to cosmic rays during a scientific mission to outer space, including the monstrous Thing (Ben Grimm) below, is a remarkable resemblance to a Watcher and the golem recorded in Judaism.
Stan Lee (Stanley Martin Lieber), the imagination behind Marvel, was of course from a Romanian-born Jewish background, so its possible he knew about such subjects.
The Watchers falling to Earth and their new Earth form
as stone people in the movie Noah
According to Firdowsi, this Watcher hybrid called Zal married a foreign princess named Rudabeh, a descendant of the 'serpent king', Zahhak, who was said to have ruled Iran for a thousand years. Rudabeh is described as 'tall as a teak tree' and ivory-white.
These are the familiar features of the 'Watcher' offspring from this ancient period.
Whatever fell to mark the black stone of Mecca is also another example of worshiping the 'stone from heaven'.
As with metals that
are forged from stone, the Aztecs said that their 'weapons' came
from the stars.
Some of these effigies don't look human that's for sure.
Mothers of the watchers
The birth of these 'Gods' is described in the Book of Enoch, were we read of the birth of Lamech's strange son Noah:
Lamech's 'strange son' who could
converse with the Watchers in the movie Noah, is actually
based on the Sumerian hero Utnapishtim, something I'll come back to
The offspring of these encounters were recorded as the,
...who were also a giant race, recorded in texts and art all over the world.
These giants were credited with giving the human race a range of knowledge known as the 'Domain of the Gods' in exchange for sexual favors from the 'daughters of men'. Their combined union resulted in a race of Giants known as the 'Nephilim', who proceeded to cause chaos on the Earth and were, allegedly, wiped out by the biblical flood.
The Biblical Goliath was a Rephiam (watcher) and in Hebrew repha means giant. In fact several Pharaohs were said to have descended from the Rapha, who also is said to have seeded the Valley of the Rephaim and were worshipped as the sons of God's, their name meaning 'son of Ra'.
Archaeological finds in Egypt also reveal giant cone headed depictions among normal sized men including several Pharaohs. There are hundreds of historical events that refer to giants from the Philistines (Goliath) to the Rock giants of Nordic myth, too many to go into here.
Here's an interesting blog on similar themes.
Right: Sultan Kösen the world's tallest man today form Turkey,
the supposed resting place of Noah's Ark
The word was used to mean an amorphous, unformed material (usually out of stone and clay) and the most famous golem narrative involved Judah Loew ben Bezalel, the late-16th-century rabbi of Prague, who was said to have conjured and controlled the Golem once brought to life.
Golem's can be crudely-formed figures, usually made of stone and clay, similar to a giant doll that is brought to life and controlled by powerful rabbis (magicians).
Sounds like a lot of Hollywood movie stars, some of which seem like 'doll/figures' that are 'controlled' by a powerful Rabbi/magician, or handler. Adam was said to be a 'golem before God' (the Gods in truth) as they (the Elohim) gave him the 'breath of life'.
As Wikipedia explains, golems,
The Kabbalah is a system of mysticism, which is described in a number of books, such as the Sefer Yetzirah, that can be used for either good or ill.
But of course, there is a secret and ritualistic face of the
'dark' use of Kabbalah (and its 'magic') in Satanism as practiced by
the El-ite on Earth.
In the Old Testament Adam is also created out of 'Earth' or 'clay', and it has been no surprise to me over the years to find similarities in the myths and texts relating to Gods of 'stone and fire' and 'commandments on stones', in both Judaism and the likes of the Hopi of North America, for example.
Various stone anthropomorphic beings from indigenous cultures
Stone Coats are described as being about twice as tall as humans, with their bodies covered in rock-hard scales that repel all normal weapons. In American Indian myth they are associated with winter and ice, and were said to hunt and eat humans, just as the Watchers. In some legends Stone Coats were once human, and became cannibal monsters as a curse punishing them for evil deeds.
The same characteristics were attributed to the Windigos of Chippewa mythology (above left). In other legends Stonecoats were never human, but were a tribe of primordial man-eating monsters created by Flint.
The common ground is that of a 'race of beings' that came to interconnect with humanity in ancient times that were clearly not human.
When we look at some of the prehistoric standing stones and geological formations or landscapes across what was considered the 'ancient world' we often see anthropomorphic creatures of stone (below).
When I've walked amongst some standing stones, especially the Carnac stones in France I often 'feel' like I am walking amongst 'stone people', or people that were 'turned to stone'.
In the world of contemporary art, the sculptures of Antony Gormley's also give the 'impression' and feel for being in the presence of 'beings', giants that watch over space and time.
The stone heads of Easter Island are classic 'ancient versions' of that same presence.
The Hall of the Mountain Kings
Places like Mount Hermon or the 'Mountain of the Chief', 'Jabal Haramun' in Hebrew are considered holy sites connected to the 'watchers'. Mount Hermon is a mountain cluster in the Anti-Lebanon mountain range and it's summit straddles the border between Syria and Lebanon and is the highest point in Syria - and the highest permanently manned UN position in the world.
Mount Hermon also means the forbidden place
and this location is the exact parallel opposite of Roswell New
Mexico on the exact polar opposite of the 33rd degree of the north
latitude. The amount of so-called ET activity at scared mountains
all over the world are numerous, too many to mention here.
In the Book of Enoch, Mount Hermon is the place where the Watcher class of fallen angels supposedly descended to Earth.
They swear upon the mountain that they would take wives among the daughters of men and take mutual imprecation for their sin (Enoch 6). The mountain or summit is also referred to as Saphon in the Ugaritic texts where the palace of Baal is located in a myth about Attar.
Baal and the Watchers are the same! The Book of Chronicles also mentions Mount Hermon as a place where Epher, Ishi, Eliel, Azriel, Jeremiah, Hodaviah and Jahdiel were the heads of their families.
Simply put, the connection to the mountain (high ground) and the watchers (or humans imbued with the gifts of the watchers) is often seen in the Biblical texts, etc.
Mount Hermon and San Francisco Peaks
both important locations for unseen forces
We look at mountains physically and we see peaks and huge effigies of stone, but for those that can see 'shamanically' they are 'vortexes of energy' that anchor other worlds in this reality.
The San Francisco Peaks (above right), which have considerable religious significance to thirteen local American Indian tribes (including the Havasupai, Navajo, Hopi, and Zuni) are described as though they are living entities with their unique vibration.
One reference says that,
Too many mountain ranges to mention in this review, but they are a significant centre for 'otherworldly' phenomena since ancient times.
It was in the Turkish mountains, on
Mount Ararat, that Noah's Ark came to rest when the waters receded,
so the Bible claims.
The peaks are seen as the home of the 'katsinam' or 'Kachina' spirits, star ancestors who have become clouds following their death and of course many solstice alignments are configured from these peaks across the Hopi villages.
Ototo, chief kachina (left in white) and Aholi, his lieutenant.
The more correct spelling is katsina and the Hebrew word
for 'officer' in the Bible is 'katsin'.
Kachinas (Katsinas) are not Gods but spirits that act as mediators between Gods and humans and they were said to take the form of any animal, plant, celestial body, or otherworldly creature.
The Katsinam (kachina) are invited to Hopi villages to serve as ethical and spiritual guides to the Hopi community from midwinter to midsummer.
During the spring and early summer the Hopis' perform a ceremonial cycle of masked kachina dances as a plea for rain and the general well being of the tribe. The Kachina's are remarkably similar in depictions of Yahweh at Ajrud in the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt.
The desert Gods of the ancient world traveled far and wide it seems?
They are all the same 'Gods' under different names in my view.
Depictions of Yahweh on the piece of pottery (right)
found at Kuntillet Ajrud, Egypt, look similar to the Kachinas
According to several sources Aaloosaktukwi or Humphrey's Peak, the highest of the San Francisco Peaks in Arizona holds particular religious significance to the Hopi and is associated with a deity called Aaloosaka, a symbol of the Two-Horn Society (above).
The 'two horned' are a religious group among the Hopi dating to the occupation of the Awat ovi village on Antelope Mesa.
The 'two horned' symbolism here relates to the long series of 'horned deities' from the epoch before the Flood and can be connected to the bloodline of the watchers.
Jacob from where we supposedly get the '12' tribes of Israel was said to be of the 'horned' clan.
As it says in Deuteronomy 33:17:
The symbolism between the Crescent moon (the Ark) and the two horns over the waters that it commands is very telling.
The Moon God Sin
Original Moon Sin
Sin was the 'father of the Gods', the 'God of the Moon' in the Mesopotamian mythology of Akkad, Assyria and Babylonia.
Sin is also Nanna, a Sumerian deity, the son of Enlil and Ninlil, and became identified with the term 'Semitic Sin'. The Fall = original Sin.
But what caused the fall? The Moon and the Serpent?
The visual themes above are not necessarily based on the
actual story of Noah, but with some stretch of the imagination and
insight, we might just realize that what the Bible calls God and
'his' desire to wipe out humanity, may just have come from the mind
of an 'other-worldly predator intelligence' that took many forms,
both seen and unseen.
Gilgamesh builds a raft (could be an ark), instead, and finds Utnapishtim and his wife living alone across a great sea, quite possibly the same sea that was the aftermath of the great deluge survived by Utnapishtim (Noah).
Utnapishtim's Ark flanked by Watchers
In the Epic of Gilgamesh it is said that the 'Gods' Anu, Enlil, Ninurta, Ennugi, and Ea intended to flood the world and kill all people, but Ea decided to rescue Utnapishtim and his wife, along with their family and friends and the animals.
After the flood, Ea settled Utnapishtim and his wife in a far off place and granted them immortality.
So, from the Epic
of Gilgamesh, we also have stone giants, a Noah figure living
apart from other people, and the 'Gods' plan to kill off humanity
and therefore build a 'new Earth'.
The Scrolls are connected with the Essene community in Palestine 2,000 years ago. In these writings Noah is described as unlike a human being and more like 'the children of the angels in heaven' - the Watchers.
Lamech questions his wife about the father of Noah:
In The Book of Enoch it is said that Noah, was white-skinned and blond-haired with eyes that made the whole house 'shine like the Sun'.
Glowing humans that
have obviously had their 'Readybrek'
In other words the bloodline of Noah (from Adam and through Seth) was that of the angels (now fallen) and the 'Gods' that reigned through their offspring on Earth, as they still do!
Interestingly Adam and Eve were portrayed as 'beings of light' in the movie Noah (see the movie Cocoon image above left) and this I feel this was done to reinforce the 'alien connection' and the less physical/material vibration that now holds humanity in chains.
The apple (above right) even looked like a 'heart' (the apple of my heart) and in many ways this story of Adam and Eve is a story of how humanity gradually went from being a 'heart based' human being, to a 'gut' based human being.
Put another way, from 'being human' to a 'human' being something lesser than it's original state. A vibrational 'fall' that focused humanity on 'surviving' through 'fearing' and focusing on the 'material' world that was waiting to ensnare the 'first humans'.
I'll come back to this theme at the end of this review.
Navajo Native American Adam and Eve
Interestingly, in the Navajo creation story Paul G. Zolbrod talks of the 'Yei', as supernatural telepathic beings that supposedly populated the Earth in the beginning. The Yei are akin to the Navajo version of Adam and Eve.
As Black Elk says of the abilities and sight of the 'first people', (true humanity before the fall):
In the Indian culture they called these flying craft Vimanas (below).
Is that a golden floating ark?
The Golden Castle painted in 1650 © San Diego Museum of Art
There were several designs of these craft.
Some were cigar-shaped while others were described as double-decked with a dome and porthole windows. Both types are regularly described in UFO sightings today. The ancient Indian texts describe anti-gravity technology of the type used in 'flying saucers'.
So much so, that when the Chinese discovered Sanskrit documents in Tibet and sent them to the University of Chandrigarh for translation, they were found to contain the knowledge to build interstellar spaceships, according to the University's Dr Ruth Reyna.
Yet the documents were thousands of years old! Dr Reyna revealed that these ships were known as 'Astras' and it was claimed they could fly to any planet, some texts talk about them flying to the Moon?
In an address delivered to the United Nations in December 1992, Thomas Banyacya of the Hopi Coyote Clan said:
Three generations of hybrids
Methuselah, who supposedly lived 969 years (Genesis 5:27), longer than anyone else recorded. His father was Enoch, of whom it is said he "walked with God" (5:24) but who was taken to heaven without dying at 365 years.
Methuselah's son Lamech died a few years before the Flood at 777 years after bearing Noah.
If they existed this lot, they weren't human (as we understand
today) were they?
According to the 'script' humans from the line of Cain had attempted to enslave and kill the Watchers, but Methuselah helped them escape and was befriended by them.
An unspoken royal linage is at work through
Methuselah down to Noah and beyond and this is the supposed
bloodline of those that still do the bidding of those erroneously
called God - the Elhohim. See my other reviews
Noah announces that all the wood will be used to build an ark, and Noah's family and the Watchers begin construction, (which is an amazing irony, given the message of the movie) but it makes me wonder who built the ancient temples of stone eh?
A rock clad 'race of giants' maybe?
Arab legends also say that the astonishing blocks of stone at Baalbek in the Lebanon or the Inca Fortress of Sacsayhuaman in Peru (above) were laid together by a 'tribe of giants' after the deluge?
In the same way some British legends tell of giants coming from Africa to build Stonehenge.
Watchers in other movies
Where are the Ents when you need them to pull apart Isengard, in our world today or the Transformers to 'watch' over humanity? All of these movie 'Holy-wood' characters are symbolic of the Watchers in my view.
In the movie, Noah's grandfather Methuselah (played by Anthony Hopkins) is portrayed as a protector of fallen Angels (demons) and a magician that uses a flaming sword in his youth.
Its is the same sword in Genesis that guards the Tree of Life and belonged to supernatural beings that could use a powerful magic and enchantment to consume anything that tries to pass through the path it is guarding.
Methuselah's sword in the movie was symbolic of the magic used to summon demons (Archons) as well as destroy them.
The phrase "an offering by fire" is used around 70 times in the Old Testament and fire (flaming swords) relates to the writings at the heart of Gnosticism and the so called fire, the light of Lucifer.
Methuselah's weapon of mass destruction
The above text appears to have come from Jewish legends (Legends of the Jews by Louis Ginzberg), where Methuselah killed demons, but in this movie he kills men too by the thousands. Nothings really changed folks here.
Noah, the Animals and
"We're The Sweeney, son, and we haven't had any dinner."
Sorry wrong film
Eight years after the miracle of the forests and as the Ark nears completion, animals start to walk into the ark where they are put to sleep by 'incense' that Noah prepares.
Churches always made me sleepy too. The simplicity of this part of the story is too crazy for me to even bother going into detail.
At this time Noah disguises himself and goes into the human camp that has gathered with the king Tubal Cain (Ray Winston above), so to find wives for his three sons.
But instead he finds that the surrounding lands have been running short on food, and the humans led by Tubal-Cain, have become savage and cannibalistic.
Noah becomes convinced that the Creator wishes for the 'entire' human race to end completely and abandons his effort. Noah returns to the Ark, while Methuselah 'secretly' blesses Ila (below), and her barrenness is now cured.
Ila and Shem become partners.
Ham (below) decides to go to the camp to find himself a wife so to make himself a man knowing that once the floods come he will be without a woman to continue his line.
You could say he's a 'Ham' sandwich without his eggs. Bad joke After seeing much of the debauchery with his own eyes, he encounters a frightened young girl named Na'el.
After comforting her she is
eventually willing to go with him as the flood begins, but on their
way back Na'el's foot gets caught in an animal trap just as
Tubal-Cain's horde are about to stampede on the Ark.
From then on, a slaughter ensues, as humans are broken and sent flying by the Watchers.
All of Noah's family gets in the Ark except for Methuselah, who chooses to die in the flood.
As the Ark is launched, and the last of the Watchers sacrifice themselves to protect it from the oncoming horde, the waters consume all that is left on the land. In doing so the Creator forgives the watchers that have aided Noah and as each one falls they ascend into Heaven on a shaft of light (below right).
As the flood drowns the remaining humans
Tubal-Cain manages to stow away on the Ark, but is found by Ham and
befriends him, playing on his anger towards his father for allowing
the girl Na'el to die.
Naameh, Shem, and Ila inform Noah of this, but the 'patriarch' says that if the child is a girl he will kill her to satisfy the Creator's wish to destroy all humanity. Noah asks for the Creator's counsel but finds no answer.
He resolves to follow his plan, despite Naameh's unsuccessful attempts to dissuade him.
Noah is blinded by his own Zeal and drive to fulfill God's wishes.
Father of the new Ark of the Covenant
Months pass, and Ila and Shem build a small raft to escape Noah, but Noah burns it just as they prepare to leave.
Ila goes into labour and Tubal-Cain is able to convince Ham to help kill Noah, who does not wish for humanity to be wiped out. Noah is lured by Ham to the aft of the ark on false pretences, where he is attacked by Tubal-Cain.
As the two fight, the Ark hits a mountain, injuring both men.
As Noah is about to finish Tubal-Cain he is attacked by Shem, which in turns allows Tubal-Cain to recover and throws Shem back, desiring to kill Noah himself, but he is turn attacked and killed by a repentant Ham. It's all the fun of the Ark.
With his final breath the king proudly proclaims Ham a man and passes him the snakeskin that he took from Lamech all those years ago.
As the family departs the Ark, Ham decides to leave them all, still angry with his father.
Ila asks Noah why he didn't kill his grandchildren and Noah says that in that moment, he had nothing in his heart but love for them. Later, the family stands atop a cliff face, and Noah blesses them all (below) as the beginning of a new human race and Ila makes him realize that God had left humanity's fate in his hands.
They watch as the Creator sends a rainbow from the sky, covering all of the Earth, signaling his promise to never destroy mankind with a flood again.
The Emergence and the Post-Flood World
Some researchers that have studied the Sumerian tablets say that the only ones to survive the catastrophe were the 'extraterrestrials' with the technology (the Ark) and foresight, perhaps prior warning, and therefore left before the deluge hit.
Maybe they caused it, maybe they knew how to get advance warning, or maybe none of it happened?
Did those that moved the Moon (Ark) both cause and therefore bring forth the 'new life' as an 'Ark of the Covenant'. Was the Ark really built of wood to re-populate the 'whole of the Earth's animal species', I don't think so!
Or was the Ark, if it existed, made of something else? Was it the Moon itself? There's a whole new movie in the making there for future generations ponder on...
As I've commented
on before, places such as the Grand Canyon, in my view, were not
created through natural erosion, but instead, some kind of major
catastrophic earth changing event - an event that must have turned
the world upside down.
The Earth shift, the Moon ark and the deluge
The deluge was a 'global phenomena' recorded on all continents, and if the evidence suggests that such an event occurred, I doubt that Noah and his offspring where the only ones around after the event.
Certain tribes people, ancient communities could have sheltered deep underground or in the mountain ranges above the flood water which, according to some studies, could have reached heights of 10, 000 feet.
Created by a river?
I don't think so, more like a deluge or something bigger
(see above image).
The Earth is riddled with tunnels and caverns, natural and created, which date back into far ancient times.
Many of these have been located, including an underground city that could house a population of thousands in Cappadocia, Turkey, one of the centers of the Phoenicians and the origin of George of Cappadocia (St George).
Thirty-six underground cities have been discovered in Cappadocia so far and some are huge complexes going down eight levels.
The ventilation systems are so efficient that even eight floors down the air is still fresh. Other vast underground cities and tunnel complexes have also been found near Derinkuya in Turkey as well, not to mention the similar tunnels in South America and on other continents.
Many incredible detailed connections made by authors Graham Hancock, Andrew Collins and Hugh Newman, between the megalithic sites of Göbekli Tepe in Turkey, places like Sacsayhuaman in Peru and Tiwanaku in Bolivia, suggest that the same people built these sites.
The flood and the need to survive it, ensured that agriculture in the post-flood world began at altitudes above 10,000 feet.
Not, as you would expect, in the fertile lower plains we see today. One study by the botanist, Nikolai Ivanovitch Vavilov, revealed that the 50,000 wild plants he examined from around the world originated in only eight areas - all of them mountainous.
Here we have the symbolism of the 'mountain' in religious texts and narratives once again as the harbinger of civilization.
The Machu Picchu site, which I have had the privilege of visiting, is built on and around mountains at very high altitudes that hold religious importance in the Inca culture and in the previous culture that occupied the land.
Great books for anyone interested in the subject
When we consider the influx of advanced knowledge in places like Ancient Egypt and Central and South America too, it is absurd to believe that these sophisticated cultures suddenly appeared from 'nowhere'.
Yet a cataclysmic flood might suggest that these civilizations were merely carriers of an advanced knowledge once held on an earlier land now lost beneath the waters? Survivors of this famous inundation could have fled, each carrying a story of disaster with them, which would have entered the oral tradition in the countries of refuge.
Eventually the tales of a lost civilization and its reason for demise would have reached the likes of Plato in Ancient Greece, who talked and wrote of nothing else.
As Michael Baigent says of places like Catal Hüyük in his book Ancient Traces:
Worthy of note is the synchronicity of the Hindu, Egyptian and Babylonian calendars which all commence a new cycle from a point of 11500 to 11000 BC.
At the same time these dates also correspond closely to the melting of the last glaciers 12,000 years ago, which could have quite easily caused a flood of that magnitude. Egyptian historians also say that the legendary Reign of the Gods commenced 10,000 years ago.
At this time it is said that the God
Thoth arrived in the Nile Delta bringing to Egypt the knowledge of
art and hieroglyphics, which must have already been a product of an
earlier, advanced civilization.*
What if Eden was a place inside the Moon, the place where the first 'homo-sapiens' prototype was produced under laboratory conditions?
I am just throwing out ideas here folks, in the nuthouse we call 'life on Earth'. If that sounds mad, then consider that scientists have now confirmed that a watery 'life supporting' ocean deep under the icy surface of Saturn's moon Enceladus is capable of harboring life, what else is there to know about the nature and composition of what we perceive to be 'dead satellites'.
According to NASA the ocean on Enceladus is buried beneath 18 to 24 miles (29 to 39km) of ice and could be larger than Lake Superior, the biggest of North America's Great Lakes.
According to NASA nineteen moons in the Solar System are large enough to have achieved hydrostatic equilibrium, and thus would be considered planets or dwarf planets if they were in direct orbit around the Sun.
There is much more to know about our
Moon (all moons) when it comes to harboring life (DNA), as we shall
ultimately see eventually.
We often hear it said that Crick and his associates 'discovered DNA'; but what became known as deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) was first discovered by Johann Friedrich Miescher in 1869.
Crick, James Watson and Maurice Wilkins were given the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1962 for,
When we look at the Sumerian drawings of the double serpent (double helix) flanked by otherworldly winged entities, we have to acknowledge that the ancients were telling us something about the source of our DNA.
The human genetically modified prototype, made by ET's for ET's and our Junk DNA holds all the clues, me thinks.
It is said that the Neanderthal cranial capacity is thought to have been as large as that of a Homo sapiens, perhaps larger, indicating that their brain size may have been comparable, or larger, as well.
In 2008, a group of scientists created a study using three-dimensional computer-assisted reconstructions of Neanderthal infants based on fossils found in Russia and Syria. The study showed Neanderthal and modern human brains were the same size at birth, but by adulthood, the Neanderthal brain was larger than the modern human brain.
My feeling is that Neanderthal's wouldn't have worked 9 til 5, or voted so well, if they had been allowed to continue.
Several movies that show
the Moon, ET, Creation themes
I feel that the ancient references to the flood and animal-human hybrid Gods found in world mythology, relate to untapped levels of DNA.
Other myths and legends seem to be telling us about parts of our consciousness that dwells in what the ancients call the Dreamtime. Artists and shamans (same thing) that go within themselves to tap into the visionary capabilities often depicted animal-human deities and dream landscapes.
All of these art forms speak of a time 'before time' and the places where reality is imagined into existence, before it manifests as physical form.
As one Native American belief states:
Were these 'species' removed by an alien
force, through several stages (including a Flood) wishing to
dominate a New Earth with its own genetically modified crop of
humans, who knows?
We receive and transmit through our DNA waveform information and we decode this into a world we 'think' we see (or perceive).
Our perceptions and behaviors that we think are 'ours' are part of this 'decoding process' that writers like David Icke have called 'the hack' or the 'Saturn-Moon Matrix'.
We can be completely controlled by the 'Matrix mind' (the hive-mind) and therefore be no more than human robots responding to data input/information, or we can 'open our hearts' and 'minds' and see beyond the deception that started in Eden.
Our DNA (programming) matched to
the new world 'birthed by the Moon Ark' now anchored on Earth.
The bloodline of Noah now runs the banks, political structures, etc,
which keep us going around the 'board of life' (Moonopoly).
Did I say bored with life?
The Ark will contain the essentials of life and human civilization, to be activated in the event of earth being devastated by a giant asteroid or nuclear war.
Do they know something we don't eh? See my review of Elysium here.
In another of Aronofsky's movies The Fountain (above left), Hugh Jackman plays a man through the ages:
And while, on a superficial level, the two movies Noah and The Fountain might not have much in common, they are inexorably linked.
The Fountain has biblical underpinnings (it opens
with a phrase from Genesis 3:24, "After he drove the man
out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a
flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree
The word 'sword' in the original Hebrew is 'chereb' from the root word 'charab', and flaming from the word 'lahahh':
The meaning here is a reminder of both the child and the 'rebel angel' within us all.
Breaking through the 'fire form' the 'flaming sword'
and returning to the innocence of a higher state of awareness
in the movie The Fountain
Both movies that show the interdimensional quality and the fragility, finite experience of the human spirit.
A cure for cancer to the obliteration of humanity that is 'seen as a cancer' (at the time of Noah), for some, 'obsession' isn't a neurotic character flaw; it's a vital trait that could end up saving humanity.
It's time to become
more 'obsessed' with the issues that are killing humanity, don't you
The Book of Noah
A very funny clip by the comedian Ricky Gevias on Noah.
