The Octagon – The Empire of Darkness is a fabulous video presentation by Sean Hross. Within this documentary you will learn according to Sean Hross that The Pharaohs are still ruling the world.
“They are everywhere. Just follow the signs. The enemy within, the interior army, the enemy both foreign and domestic. Just follow the signs. The worldwide police force as octagon nazi templars from Octagon Switzerland.
NATO is a part of Octagon. Octagon rules over Pentagon. The NAZIs are within the NATO. They are rubbing Sand in our Eyes. Just like the pharaonic Viper Snake that is hiding under the sand. You should not underestimate Nazism has nothing to do with protecting the whites. So Nazism is in fact an organization against the white of Europe. Octagon is the military part and hexagon is the political part (Freemasons). Watch the 8 dots of the submarine, which is the executional force of Jahwe.
The word Satan comes from the pharanonic and semetic word Shaitan, meaning a snake, and the snake is the pharanoic honed Viper, which hides in the sand underneath the surface..We hide amongst you, you cannot see us, until we suddenly strike with deadly power. They all do it. V Symbol for fast striking Viper. V for Victory is the Templars V.
Octagon is the encoded key password for the Templars and for Switzerland. The Templars founded Switzerland in 1291. The Swiss financed the Germans and even the pope has to obey them.
We the People must show these young nazis where the real enemy is and the enemy is not the immigrant or the foreigner.
The Obelisk is a phallic symbol…it is the symbol for the circumcision. An old pharaonic tradition for the Slaves and a covenant with Satan. This is the symbol for the pharaonic warfare. Mix first…and fight the enemy from within, as a Virus and strike unseen as a wound Viper, means the satanic hand…they had to take over all position in society, you can´t recognize the enemy anymore, the enemy within is very real, the fight is from the inside out..Penetration has indeed succeeded…As these Pharaos rule the whole world… Ka is pharaonic for the soul when still alive and Ba after Death. And wehn Allah stands beside it it becomes Kaballah.. Mer or Merkel is the pharaonic word for Pyramid.. The soul as in Mer ka or Merkabah, almost like America.. So let´s all unite mankind, we have no choice, forget about Religions and Races..and get rid of these Pharaohs together…Now what are these crop circles warnings us for…These Pharaohs have their basis in Switzerland. So Nazism is in fact an organisation against the white race of Europe.
SS = Skull & Bones. SS stands for ISIS, in hebrew only the consonates are written.
So Hexagone is the political wing for the Freemasons and Octogone is the military wing for the Nazi Templars,..here is the Swiss secret service, so it is not a coincidence that this is Octogone..In fact the Nazis are using the 8 as a code, on YouTube in the Internet, because the ‘h’ is the 8 number in the alphabet”.
The mysterious door of the ancient Padmanabhaswamy (bit of a mouth full) temple remains a mystery. What’s rather interesting to me, when looking closely at this door is that two fleur-de-lis are rather prominently positioned. The temple is thought to be one of the most protected places on the planet and this sealed door its the probable reason.
Padmanabhaswamy Temple is located in Thiruvananthapuram, India. Today the Sri Padmanabhaswamy temple is one of the most protected places on the planet, guarded by metal detectors, security cameras, and more than two hundred guards, some of whom are equipped with heavy weapons.
The origin of the Temple of Sree Padmanabhaswamy is lost in antiquity. It is not possible to determine with any exactitude, from any reliable historical documents or other sources as to when and by whom the original idol of Sree Padmanabhaswamy was consecrated. The Temple has references in Epics and Puranas.
Two enormous Cobras are rumored to be protecting the inner most hidden chamber. To make matters worse, legend has it that anyone who opens the vault will be met with disastrous results.
There is an estimated $22 billion worth of gold and jewels stored in underground vaults. (2016).
This ancient temple features 8 underground vaults out of which only 5 have been opened and explored. the most impressive and mysterious feature of the temple is a hidden chamber which is guarded by two massive cobras. Legends say that anyone who dares to open the door will meet disastrous results. A book titled ‘Travancore: A guide book for the visitor’ authored by Emily Gilchrist Hatch, recalled a group of people who tried to open the vaults in 1931 and had to flee for their lives when they found the place infested with cobras, and also mentioned a similar unsuccessful attempt in 1908.
Interior of temple
HOW TO OPEN IT
The door has no bolts, latches or any other means of entry. Legend has it that the door was sealed shut by sound waves from a secret chant. Hindu priests say that at present, there is no human capable of executing these chants and opening the strange door.
Above is a doorway to the 16th-century Padmanabhaswamy Temple, located in Thiruvananthapuram India. The elaborate temple doorway is believed to be a portal guarded by a deity of the Underworld associated with death and Underworld resurrection. The portal door encodes dual serpents, wrapped around the Tree of Life, and dual Fleur de lis emblems, symbolic of the Trinity, and divine resurrection.
Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The shrine is currently run by a trust headed by the royal family of Travancore. The temple and its assets belong to Lord Padmanabhaswamy, and were for a long time controlled by a trust headed by the Travancore Royal family.
Many speculate that the contents hidden inside this chamber go far beyond gold… could it be knowledge? Why so much protection from the Indian Government? Do they know something we don’t? We will have to wait since no archeological studies are authorised by the culture department.
Being dubbed the Arch of Peace by Italians since it was installed at the G7 Summit, The Arch of Palmyra, Temple of Bel / Baal is making it rounds again.
It stood throughout Easter / Passover (27th March to the 27th April) and is being showcased in Florence. During February the Arch was erected in Dubai.
Palmyra Arch 12-14th February Dubai
The installation in Florence coincided with the G7 Summit and also being erected in Palazzo Vecchio and on the 30th and 31st March 2017, it is deemed as a symbol of the rebirth and reconstruction of humanity’s cultural heritage, which are continually at risk from the dangers of humankind and nature.
This erection followed a meeting held for the remaining 27 leaders of the European Union at the Vatican with the Jesuit Francis.
The installation will also feature a Chimera, a genetic hybrid.
This monstrous beast was first mentioned in the Iliad, where Homer describes it as an hybrid of three different creatures: a lion, a goat and a snake. The beast’s head was fire-breathing; the Chimera was killed by the noble Bellerophon, son of Glaucus, as the Gods predicted. The Chimera is also mentioned in Hesiod’s Theogony and in Virgil’s Aeneid.
The Florentine reported
“the Chimera di Arezzo will go on special display in the Sala Leone X as part of the exhibition Chimera Relocated: Taming the Beast”.
Chimera of Arezzo.

Interestingly, Neptune who is Poisedon, who is Nimrod, is featured in the background as though he could walk through the arch.
The facts from the original texts of Plato about the destruction of Atlantis was that the Sons of Poseidon had become wicked and corrupted. They venerated a merderous supetnatural “Bull” creature with rites rituals including blood sacrifices.
There is a long standing tradition amongst Greeks that Poisedon is the same kind of figurehead with that of Satan.
Palmyra was an ancient city of central Syria, located in an oasis 130 miles (210 km) NE of Damascus.
Once dubbed the “Bride of the Desert,” Palmyra was a vital stop for caravans crossing the Syrian desert. Palmyra was mentioned in the Old Testament as being fortified by Solomon and it flourished in Roman times.
The Greek name for the city, Palmyra is a translation of its original Aramaic name, Tadmor, which means ‘palm tree’. Tadmor is today the name of a small city next to the ruins, heavily dependent on tourism. Tadmor is mentioned in the Bible (2 Chronicles 8:4) as a desert city that was fortified by King Solomon.
So why does the Arch of Ba’al arrive for an important world event? could it be possible that when we are erecting these symbols that we are laying out “welcome mats” for the Antichrist? Some scholars think just that.
You don’t have to be an expert to see that something very strange is going on. Monuments that have a direct link back to Nimrod and to ancient Babylon are starting to be erected all over the world, and I believe that is a very ominous sign for our future.
Warning …. this is a super long post. So before I begin, I will state this.
The problem is we simply do not know enough about the goddesses of antiquity. We know there were many. And we know there were women who didn’t claim divinity as well. Basically, we just don’t know!
According to theologian and historian Francesca Stavrakopoulou, God had a wife and her name was Asherah.
Phoenician figure, probably of the Canaanite goddess Astarte (also known as Ashera), 7th century B.C.E.
So who was Asherah or more importantly what is Asherah?
Well, she crops up in many ancient sources, and crosses ancients civilisations.
Ancient Semitic Religion – a mother goddesss. Consort to the God Anu.
Akkadian (3000 BC) writings by the name of Ashratum/Ashratu
Hittite (16th -13th c BC) as Asherdu(s) or Ashertu(s) or Aserdu(s) or Asertu(s).
Asherah, along with Astarte and Anath, was one of the three great goddesses of the Canaanite pantheon. In Canaanite religion her primary role was that of mother goddess
Asherah is generally considered identical with the Ugaritic (6000 -1200 BC) goddess ʼAṯirat.- A consort of the god El
Consort to the God Yahweh the god of Israel and Judah during the Iron Age 930-586 BC. אשרה Hebrew. In the Bible Asherah is mostly associated with sacred trees or poles (Exodus 34:13, Judges 6:25).
According to the Oxford Companion to the Bible, Asherah was associated with lions, serpents and sacred trees.
Asherah – is Hecate.
Ancient texts contain many epithets for the Goddess Asherah. To mention a few:-
“Great Mother Goddess” “Creator of Vegetation and Life” “Queen of Heaven” “Lady who Treads on the Sea” “Mother of the Gods” “Holiness” “Hebrew Goddess” “Vital Force of Nature” “Lion Lady”
“the One of the Serpent.”
If there was a “Mrs God” before Yahweh became the only God, archaeologists should logically have found traces of this goddess. But it was a sensitive subject, as any proof of the union between Yahweh and his Asherah was heavily disputed. As happened with the inscribed jars, found at Kuntillet Ajrud. Because this pottery does not just evoke “Yahweh and his Asherah”, but is richly illustrated too.
On the jar, two cows can be seen, a seated lady musician and two humanoid figures, one with a phallus and the other with breasts. There are a lot of animal drawings on the other side of the jar, particularly lions, which are often associated with Asherah, around a stylised tree.
The remains excited intense debate. Was the goddess depicted on this jar? If she was, which one was she? One of the cows? The lady musician or the humanoid figure with breasts? Or the stylised tree?
The name Asherah translates as “she who moves across the water.” Pure and timeless, Asherah is the Spirit of God who was there in the beginning, moving upon the face of the deep and rejoicing over God’s handiwork (Genesis 1:1; Proverbs 8:30). She is the Queen of Heaven mentioned in Revelation 12:1. She is represented in Scripture by her namesake Sarah— her name being a variation and archetype of Asherah. However, by the time we get to the prophets, we see a whole new pattern emerging— that of a people committing spiritual harlotry, characterised by the prostitute Gomer being pursued by her faithful husband Hosea. This image is further perpetuated by the Cannanite belief that Asherah was constantly cheating on her husband El with his arch-nemesis Baal, the god of the storms; this story mirroring the strange and erratic behavior of the gods in the ancient world. However, whatever this is, it is my firm conviction that this is not behavior that is becoming of an Israelite goddess! Something about this scenario just does not sit quite right with me. It almost seems as if Asherah has had her dignity stripped of her by the very people she represents, not the fertility rituals that have come to characterise and mar Her image.
Okay, she’s a goddess – what rituals were performed ?
Here is the thing about studying about Asherah worship. When I started studying this and looking into this goddess worship, I couldn’t find a thing. I wanted to know how it was that they served her. I wanted to know the rituals and the ways of Asherah. But, as I studied, I found out that it was a ‘secret’ female religion. They didn’t write much about it because of the secrecy of it. Therefore, for us, who live in the NOW, we struggle to find out what Asherah worship entailed. We struggle to find out what really happened during ceremonies and rituals that belonged to the ‘the secret sect of female goddess worship’. Therefore, scholars can’t agree on what was what. They can’t agree on her rituals or what she required of her worshipers.
Even in Ancient Rome, they had a celebration that only women could attend and was kept a secret. The only reason that we know about it, is because lawsuits were recorded.
The Iron Age occupants of Israel have a reputation as the creators of monotheism, but objective biblical scholars (the ones without a religious motive behind their research) believe that archaeological and religious records indicate this development was slow in coming. To be blunt: most of the Israelites through most of their history were probably, as it turns out, polytheists. And this was not simply a matter of falling into the habit of taking on foreign religion. Rather, the Israelites were probably themselves Canaanites and their original gods appear to have been Canaanite gods. The Hebrew means “happy” or “upright” and some suggest “(sacred) place.” The term appears 40 times in the Hebrew Bible. Asherah appears as a Goddess by the side of Baʿal, whose consort She evidently became, at least among the Canaanites of the south.
It is also believed that TheBook of Jeremiah, written around 628 BC, possibly refers to Asherah when it uses the title “Queen of Heaven”. This is also a title given to a number of ancient sky goddesses worshipped throughout the ancient Mediterranean and Near East during ancient times.
If there was a doctrine of rebirth in early Israelite religion, then perhaps the closest one may come to such a teaching would be within the cult precinct of the goddess or the grove. There is strong evidence that in first temple Judaism fertility was venerated, not under the auspices of Yahweh, but with his consort Asherah, the goddess of rebirth.
Let’s just pause here and reflect. Agriculture, the first and most important invention of humans, was strongly influenced by such things as a fertility goddess. Because crops were a life or death issue to everyone, Asherah was pictured as being equal to Yahweh and, in fact, his loving bride. An Oxford scholar has argued that the Book of Kings reveals the Hebrews worshiped Asherah and Yahweh in Yahweh’s Israelite temple.
Although during the past decades many religious scholars, historians and some theologians have discussed Asherah and her relationship to the Hebrew God Yahweh, it’s generally recognised that the first to discover that the ancient Hebrews worshiped both deities equally was historian Raphael Patai. It was in 1967 when Raphael Patai was the first historian to mention that the ancient Israelites worshiped both Yahweh and Asherah.
By the time of the Babylonian exile she had been exiled from the religion and dropped from all the texts. Egyptian Jews, however, maintained a temple to the Queen of Heaven, and early Christian Jews, according to Margaret Barker, may have imported this tradition into the new faith, flowering in the cult of the Virgin Mary. This was about the time 586BC. Eventually only one male God—without a wife—was accepted and preached and believed by people of all the countries of the world.
~ Queen of Heaven, Asherah ~
Biblical texts reveal how Asherah was worshipped as the Queen of Heaven in
Judah and Jerusalem:
“We will burn incense to the Queen of Heaven and will pour out drink offerings to her
just as we and our fathers, our kings and our officials
did in the towns of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem.
At that time we had plenty of food
and were well off and suffered no harm.
But ever since we stopped burning incense to the
Queen of Heaven and pouring out drink offerings to her,
we have had nothing and have been perishing by sword and famine.”
Gaza Coin of Asherah & Yahweh 538-328BC
Despite continual denials, the Bible clearly states that Asherah/Lady Wisdom was there from the very beginning.
Asherah / Lady Wisdom declares:-
“The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way… I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning…” “Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight… ” (Prov. 8:22,30 KJV)
So, The Lord God, through Moses, forbade the worship of Asherah.
Typical! The day that women were recognised for her wisdom, beauty and guile was now to be wiped. History HIS-STORY now written mainly by men and about men’s activities in the public sphere—war, politics, diplomacy and administration. Women to be demonised and excluded and, when mentioned, are usually portrayed in sex-stereotypical roles such as wives, mothers, daughters and mistresses. Okay little rant over and back to narrative, so The Law (made by men) specified that a grove of trees was not to be near the altar of the Lord (Deuteronomy 16:21). Despite God’s clear instructions, Asherah-worship was a perennial problem in Israel. They still worshiped Her under every green tree, according to the Hebrew Bible (what Christians call the Old Testament).
So Asherah didn’t completely disappear, however. When Moses is instructed by God to make a menorah to light the temple, it is described as a stylised almond tree (Exodus 25.31-39). The biblical historian Margaret Barker suspects that this sacred tree figure was one of the symbols of Asherah. So the menorah may be one last lingering trace of the bible’s first couple.
The Bible also tells us Her image was to be found for years in the temple of Solomon, where the women wove hangings for Her. In temple and forest grove, Her image was apparently made of wood, since monotheistic reformers demanded it be chopped down and burned. It appears to have been a manmade object, but one carved of a tree and perhaps the image was a stylised tree of some kind.
So … Asherah or God-the-Mother was considered God’s equal and his spouse for centuries up until around 500 years before Christ.
For several reasons at that time, among which was all the perversions surrounding Her worship, it was deemed “safer” to go to all-male-god religion. People just could not separate sex from Goddess worship, and her temples and places of worship (groves of trees on hilltops) sadly had become glorified brothels. These groves were date palms.
So … why does Moses carry an Asherah stick / staff)
It was a secret staff of power.
The Divine Feminine.
Asherah, tree goddess, mother of life, was lost. Truly, WOMEN were cast out of the Garden of Eden by Yahweh, or at least, his supporters. Separated from the Tree of Life, our mother, we flounder like orphans. We are surrounded by Mother Nature and she seeps into our traditions – Goddess is lost, officially, but remembered deep within. perhaps without noticing.
We could say the same about Mary Magdalene whom was kept hidden (veiled) and edited out of mainstream Christianity. She remained in Gnostic scriptures and in underground Christianity.
Symbology and Representations
Asherah was represented by a limbless tree trunk planted in the ground. The trunk was usually carved into a symbolic representation of the goddess. Because of the association with carved trees, the places of Asherah worship were commonly called “groves,” and the Hebrew word “asherah” (plural, “asherim”) could refer either to the goddess or to a grove of trees.
Themes are kindness, love, divination and foresight.
However, this sounds delightful we have then in the His-Story written record that these groves were used as places of debaunchery, whoring and glorified brothels (as mentioned above).
So in the bible written by men she was largely excluded. Her name appears as ha asherah, meaning “the” asherah. In such instances the reference is not to the goddess but to a symbol of her, as discussed above, an object (in the plural asherim) that was apparently a sacred pole, tree, or group of trees, which got me thinking about the Tree and Pole.
“Why the BBC’s new face of religion believes God had a WIFE”
Kuntillet Ajrud’s “ceramic inscription that suggests ancient Israelites worshipped a God AND Goddess in the same temple.” –Dr Francesca Stavrakopoulou
Evidence? Dr Stavrakopoulou with a reconstruction of a biblical inscription mentioning Asherah and Yahweh
The inscription was photographed and recorded by archaeologists and scholars of ancient Israelite religion, so we know what it looked like – and importantly – what it said.
Dating to about the 8th Century BC, it was found at a remote site called Kuntillet ‘Ajrud, and was written on a large piece of a broken pottery. The inscription is a petition for a blessing. Crucially, the inscription asks for a blessing from ‘Yahweh and his Asherah’. Here was evidence that presented Yahweh and Asherah as a divine pair.
Female figurines and inscribed prayers to a“divine couple” found in temples in Israel suggest that the “one God” of the Bible may not have been entirely alone. A find by Jerusalem at Tel Motza, “suggests that Iron Age religion in the area around Jerusalem may not have been monotheistic just before the time the Hebrew Bible – the basis of the Old Testament – started to be written.”
Garden of Eden
“Yahweh’s Divorce from the Goddess Asherah in the Garden of Eden” or Was the Garden of Eden story created to dishonour and defame Asherah?
The Garden of Eden story is a recycling of standard Mesopotamian myths. It is no accident that the narrative includes a sacred Tree of Life (one of Asherah’s attributes) and a serpent (another one of Asherah’s attributes). By deliberately interweaving Asherah representations into the Garden of Eden story, the authors were able to successfully defame Eve/Asherah – the Feminine component of religious worship.
Asherah may not be the only female expunged from biblical texts!!
“My wife” – declares Jesus on a coptic papyrus fragment translated by Karen King, a professor at Harvard Divinity School and validated by two other experts from Princeton and NYU.
Do we secretly, without knowing, acknowledge Asherah’s presence ?
The churches here in England are often sited on the grounds where Yew Trees grow. They used to be placed within a circle of Yews which is more than likely s legacy of the Druids. The Yew being associated with immortality, renewal, regeneration, everlasting life, rebirth and transformation – Does this sound familiar as these qualities are all associated with the Mother Goddess Asherah. Many of the sacred yew groves were destroyed by The Romans as too the Druids when Christianity and her Legions marched through our sacred lands.
What’s with these Poles?
Ha! they are Phalic Symbols ! Well they have to be don’t they. Asherah was a fertility goddess for Pete’s sake.
The first mention of the Asherah pole is in Exodus 34:13 (NIV): “Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones and cut down theirAsherah poles.” The Israelites were commanded to destroy any Asherah pole they found among the other people in the land. Again, what’s with all the anger from this monotheistic God !
We see them daily, of course they are the steeples on our Churches and of course let’s not forget Obelisks ! One most famous Obelisk is featured at the Vatican City – that being 4000 years old and in actual fact, many are located in Rome, I was actually stunned by the amount of Obelisks I encountered. In fact, 13 of them!
It was the largest non-inscribed obelisk to leave Egypt, at 25.31 m high on a base of 8.25m wide and weighing an estimated 326 tonnes.
One could also say, that the Statue of Liberty could well be an Asherah Pole!
“Do not set up any wooden Asherah pole beside the altar you build to the LORD your God” – Deuteronomy 16:21 NIV
If you look at the Statue of Liberty you will notice that near her feet the robe resembles a tree trunk. The statue appears such that she totally *could* be carved out of a single (yet giant) tree. Even the angle at which she holds the torch is extraordinarily parallel – much like a pole. From torch to toe the Statue of Liberty resembles a pole.
Asherah Poles are located as Obelisks in Capital Cities (for an indepth gallery of these, visit wiki), the following gives a flavour.
Cleopatra’s Needle – London
Carlton Hill, Edinburgh,
Place de la Concorde, Paris
Auckland, New Zealand
Asherah Pole – Jewish Gematria = 328 English Gematria = 648 Simple Gematria = 108 which also is the gematria for The Lord God, Born of Fire, Dark Messiah, Lord of Death, I am not Here etc etc..
But what is celebrated here in England every 1st May.
The maypole – which originally was a huge phallus. A huge wooden phallus, and people would dance around it, wrapping it in colorful ribbons as they worshipped their sex deity, Asherah.
This was later simplified into a pole, and it’s previous meanings have been veiled in ignorance through tradition and denial. Look carefully, and you’ll see there is a boy and a girl closely aligned to the pole, being told to stand there, yet being completely unaware of the significance of the setting they are at the center of. This is why Pagan worship is called occult — the true meaning of things is “hidden” from view, yet in plain sight to those who are initiated to the secrets!
Oh and let’s not forget that time of year when we erect a TREE in our house and pop presents around it (offerings). This solstice tree is drawn directly from the Pagan worship, transformed for public consumption. The Asherim were considered altars in themselves also, where animals and humans were ritually sacrificed. This altar could take the form of a tree stump, with the trunk snapped-off, leaving jagged spike-like splinters.
Obviously, this can be broken down further, totem poles, the cross but yes …. YES YES she is hidden, but open your eyes and she is still rather hip today.
Asherah – Simple Gematria = 60
Asherah – Jewish Gematria = 193
The Mormon church began in a sacred grove where Joseph Smith had his first vision. From the beginning the Goddess was there. She may not have been there in physical form, but She was there symbolically.

Asherah/Cybele in Chariot Drawn by Lions – Masonic Image
Vestiges of submerged, historical traditions are reflected in this Masonic depiction,

When you really think about it “Asherah” has morphed from goddess to wooden pole to obscurity, Father God, Creator of the universe, has never changed.
Whether Asherah was worshiped as God’s wife, remains a matter of debate. Although folk religion accepted the worship of the Mother Goddess, it remains a fact that no Hebrew word for “goddess” appears in the Hebrew Bible, that Yahweh is never called “mother” in the Old Testament, and that he was never worshiped as a female deity.
To call God “mother” and to worship him as a female God is to return to Canaanite religion and to the pagan practices of the religions of the ancient Near East. In the Hebrew Bible God is presented as the father and husband of Israel. The Bible never refers to God as mother or wife.
To address God as a “she” or as “mother” is to return to the worldview prevalent in Canaanite religion. The prophets of the Old Testament struggled against the syncretistic tendencies of the people of Israel. To return to the practices of the folk religion of Israel is to abandon the prophetic struggle to desacralise sexuality in Israel.
There is no machine anywhere on earth bigger or more powerful than the Large Hadron Collider, located at CERN in Switzerland. A collider that spans 17 miles in length; it is the most powerful particle accelerator every made and many eminent physicists believe that what scientists are doing there has the potential to destroy not just the world, but the universe itself.
Just to write such a thing seems ludicrous, “…the power to destroy the universe…” However, Professor Stephen Hawking, a man considered the equal of Einstein, has this to say about the Large Hadron Collider and what it may discover. He believes it “…could pose grave dangers to our planet…the God Particle (also known as the Higgs Boson Particle) found by CERN could destroy the universe.”

So …keeping in mind this, why on Earth is the Nimrod Palymra Arch Opening near Cern in March 2017?
Shocking!! “Arch of Baal” to be built near CERN on March 25, 2017.
Illuminati anti-christ ritual exposed, Palmyra Arch. This agenda is using “imititative” and “symbollic” magic to represent ‘the gate’ or ‘portal’ of Baal/Nimrod/Babylon ritualistically.
March 25, 2017 is the 84th day of the year 2017 in the Gregorian calendar. There are 281 days remaining until the end of the year. The day of the week is Saturday. SATURNday.
On Sunday 12th February 2017 the replica of the temple of ba’al was erected for the opening of the World Government Summit based in Dubai. The World Government Summit Organization is founded in collaboration with the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, United Nations, World Economic Forum, Abu Dhabi Fund for Development, OECD and CLAD. Together with this organisations, the World Government Summit Organization aims to commit itself in shaping the future of more than 7 billion people across the world. This global platform is dedicated to shaping the future of the government worldwide, in which the organisationsutilise technology, innovation and opportunities to enhance and solve the problems facing humanity annually. A really good article written by Alex Newman entitled At “World Government Summit,” Top Globalists Drop The Mask delves into the operation and is really worth reading here.
According to one rabbi this has created a scene that symbolises the dangerous fusion of Ishmael and Edom against Israel.
The temple erected here, during this auspicious event is the globalists dream of a utopia where humanity has been united under a one world government, a one world economy and a one world religion. The globalists understand the power of symbols very well. The erecting of this arch in Dubai at the exact same time the “World Government Summit” was being held sends a very powerful message. Unfortunately the mainstream media in the western world were almost entirely silent about this summit.
Now, cast your minds back to 2016 when originally the plan was to construct a replica of the temple of ba’al in both New York and London, but after massive amounts of uproar from the people – UNESCO and the Institute for Digital Archeology announced that they would not reconstruct the temple of ba’al but rather they would rebuild the arch of Palmyra.

The Arch of Palmyra, or also known as the Arch of Triumph is essentially the entranceway to the temple of baal. “The Monumental Arch was built sometime during the reign of emperor Septimius Severus, which lasted from 193 to 211 AD; it linked the main street of the Colonnade and the Temple of Bel.” Bel and Baal are the same deities. Both are represented in the Bible as the enemy of the Sovereign God, the Living God, the God of the Bible better known as Yahweh.
Hawking goes onto say that the Large Hadron Collider is generating such unbelievable amounts of energy that there is a danger it could inadvertently create a “vacuum bubble.” Essentially he is saying that because the universe is fundamentally unstable, in discovering the Higgs Boson, such tremendous energy is released that space and time itself can collapse catastrophically through something called “vacuum decay.”
Neil de Grasse Tyson, physicist and Director of the Hayden Planetarium (and a prominent atheist), also believes, like Hawking, that the experiments being planned and conducted at CERN are a legitimate danger to the future of mankind.
Both these eminent scientists have sounded their warnings independently. Both of them are genuinely worried. Hawking has even suggested that the LHC and what they are doing there actually “scares him.”
Indeed, so dangerous that some scientists have even taken out lawsuits to prevent and restrain CERN from operating the LHC at full power until a comprehensive risk assessment of dangers is undertaken. The lawsuits have failed and no such risk assessments have ever been undertaken
From recreating the Big Bang, to creating Dark Matter, to discovering and producing strange matter called quarks and stranglets – something that can only be done at almost unimaginably powerful high energy collisions to produce the conditions necessary to bring about actual time travel.
In 2004, The Indian Government gifted a Statue of Shiva, a god of creation death and destruction.
During 2015 Illuminati Watcher reported that a piece of Art was being released by CERN.
This from an ‘artistic point’ was a fabulous film which portrayed performing arts and technology colliding with the Higgs Boson. The dance was called “Dance of Destruction”. The ‘film’ is about a physicist named Lucas who is evoking a goddess deity named Claron (aka Shiva) through the Dance of Destruction. She communicates to him like Aleister Crowley’s spirits did, and instructs him on what to do. Here’s a snippet of the explanation of this video:
Claron McFadden appears, asking him if he loves the particle more than he loves himself, and, if he could, would he become one with the particle.
However, it is all rather sinister. The spiritual realm is real and the spiritual warfare that takes place there is real, something that is an anathema to these scientists. Could it be possible that these scientists inadvertently end up opening a portal or a door not to another dimension, but into the spiritual realm, perhaps even to the Bottomless Pit or the Abyss itself?
People today have become so desensitised to the supernatural that they have forgotten just how dangerous it can be. For most of humanity the existence of another realm, a spiritual realm is a mere fantasy. Why, on Earth would the gateway to the Temple of Baal visit CERN?
This is a 1609 edition copy of the incomplete epic poem The Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser. It is one of the longest poems in the English language and is notable for its verse form known as the Spenserian stanza. The Faerie Queene contains allegories to praise Queen Elizabeth I, who favoured the piece resulting in a £50 annual stipend for Spenser. This work would be his most famous. Call No: RAR PR 2358 AI 1609
Written during the Reformation, a time of religious and political controversy. The poem celebrates, memorialises, and critiques the Tudor dynasty (of which Elizabeth was a part). The Faerie Queene suggests that the Tudor lineage can be connected to King Arthur and The world of The Faerie Queene is based on English Arthurian legend.
The frontispiece is spellbinding. We must not forget that these poems were composed during the reformation, a time when many Catholic images were being destroyed by The ‘Establishment’ in England. We can clearly observe a scriptural reference to the hand and arm of the Lord emerging from the clouds indicating the presence of the almighty. These hands clasp the Anchor which is entwined by a snake. First impressions would indicate a Maritime theme, but this has a much deeper meaning. Remember the time … the anchor was a symbol used before the cross, and symbolises that Jesus/God/Christianity was the anchor. It’s also a Christian symbol for hope and steadfast. The snake entwined is about salvation or raising up, and eternal life. However, the Anchor is in fact the Ankh, the Crux Ansata. A simple T-Cross, surmounted by an oval – called the RU, which is, simply put, the gateway to enlightenment. This enigmatic symbol represents ‘eternal life’ and is often depicted being held by a god which we can see here.
Now the snake / serpent is the interesting part. In isolation the snake personifies evil, Satan and original sin and Saturn who personified time. This snake looks rather angry, you can see clearly it’s forked tongue. Elizabeth is renown to have owned jewellery and costume including emblems of serpents, which were probably understood as a symbol of wisdom.
The portrait was created by an unknown artist in the 1580s or early 1590s and the Tudor queen is shown with the snake clasped in her fingers.
Examining the frontispiece further looking at the Left hand side In Latin Et vsque ad nvbes veritas tva; head-and tail-pieces; initials with the picture which appears from the clouds holding a book in front of a sun. Laurel leaves and two single roses.
Central is the face of Isis and we will come back to this when looking at the poems within the book.
The heraldic shield contains three books, a chevron with a bird flanked by roses. A sun with a central dove. This shield is featured on another page.

The central image on the page is the shield which was found on the frontispiece. The central sun with the words Os homini sublime dedit. Latin translated to “man the gods gave”
A shield is held by two ladies. One whom is bearing a break.
The poem is dedicated to Elizabeth who is represented in the poem as the Faerie Queene Gloriana, as well as the character Belphoebe. The upper part of the page displays The English Royal Lion (on the left) and the Welsh Dragon (on the right), symbolising that Elizabeth was Queen of England and Wales.
Throughout The Faerie Queene, virtue is seen as “a feature for the nobly born” On the opposite side of the spectrum, The Faerie Queene indicates qualities such as cowardice and discourtesy that signify low birth. Spenser, in his letter to Sir Walter Raleigh, points out the most obvious allegorical devices that run through the entire tale. Those are the Red Crosse Knight, Gloriana, and Faerie Land, as King Arthur, Queen Elizabeth I, and England, respectively. Sovereignty being what it was (and, to a lesser degree, remains), one may see not only Faerie Land but also the characters of the Red Crosse Knight and Gloriana as symbolic of all England. Thus, Spenser’s Trinitarian representation of the State is his first showing of England’s alignment with the divine and, thereby, Elizabeth’s God-given right to rule. (Palmer, J, 2009)
Leading Historian Alison Weir believes that a 19th Century engraving which was discovered on Ebay could be the ‘lost’ 16th Century portrait of Anne Boleyn, Queen of England
Actually, what has been discovered is an old reproduction (above) of an apparently lost painting – and the fact that it was found on eBay has given the story added legs (although just to be precise, what was being sold on eBay were modern reproductions – for £70 – of a print found in a print shop near Oxford by a former farmer and Tudor portrait enthusiast Howard Jones).
The original painting was sold to a London Art dealer before being lost in 1842. After Anne Boleyn was beheaded in 1536, pictures of the beguiling Queen were destroyed. A concerted effort to erase her from history was rather thorough, leaving only a battered lead disc (the Moost Happi medal) which is housed in the British Museum in London as a contemporary likeness. There are only two other authenticated ‘portraits’; one in the National Portrait Gallery (NPG), the Nidd Hall Portrait housed within the Bradford Art Gallery.
Bust of Anne Boleyn
THE MOOST HAPPI, ANNO 1534
Anne Boleyn by Unknown English Arts
Purchased, 1882 (National Portrait Gallery)
Nidd Hall Portrait
The Nidd Hall housed in the Bradford Art Gallery shows a woman wearing jewellery long thought to be Boleyn’s. But scholars have been divided on the figure’s identity. Some claim the woman is Boleyn’s successor, Jane Seymour, the third wife of King Henry VIII
So, this painting that emerged in an online auction, was somewhat exciting. Looking at the details within the portraiture, you can clearly see:-
The sitter’s lavish necklace bears the initials of Anne Boleyn Regina. This ‘A’ pendant resembles that worn by her daughter, the Elizabeth I . The letter B stands for the Boleyn family. The letter R for Anne Regina’, hence the portrait being a coronation portrait. The fashion is also right for a portrait of the 1530s.
The image is not unknown, for it was engraved at least twice in the 19th Century.
Then, the sitter was thought to be Joanna Fitzalan, Lady Bergavenny. This Lady Bergavenny, however, died some time before 1515, and the fashion would appear to rule her out as the sitter in this portrait (though one never knows in Tudor portraiture, and we cannot exclude the possibility that it shows another member of the family). The picture was once at Strawberry Hill, and we must tempted to assume that if there really was any historical chance this sitter might have been Anne Boleyn, then those old iconographical optimists of the 18th and 19th Centuries would have labelled it such.
This choker is a symbolic representation of Anne’s pride in her Boleyn identity. Even after she became queen, she continued to wear her B-letter choker.
An “A” pendant is worn by Elizabeth in the Whitehall Family Group Portrait.
Her ornate French headdress is not simply a stylish piece of accessory; it is in fact an instrument which expresses her unique character. Her flattering French hood was associated with the ideas of sophistication, style and refinement and is embroidered with ‘As’. (As seen on a pendant worn by Elizabeth I, pictured above)
Could this be a clover leaf or cross ?
For centuries, people have considered four–leaf clovers to be magical. The four leaf clover was and is an universally accepted symbol of good luck with its origin ages old. According to legend, Eve carried a four leaf clover from the Garden of Eden to remind her of Paradise (lost). Each of the delicate little four leaves represent FAITH… HOPE… LOVE… And LUCK! It was also a charm to ward off evil spirits and anyone wearing a clover would be able to see the little folk (fae). To find, this symbolism around her headdress is fortunate indeed, the English have a tradition that if you dream of Clover, you’re guaranteed a happy and prosperous marriage.
Historian Alison Weir is of the opinion that this portrait is a Cornonation portrait as Anne is holding either a Gillyflower meant ‘queen of delights’ or a ‘Carnation’ that may derive from ‘Coronation’. However, I believe the ‘Carnation’ is a symbol for ‘betrothal or marriage’ and that and the ‘Clover’ symbolism being worn both on her dress and French hood adds to this conclusion.
THE WORLD GODDESS DAY PROJECT emerged in 2014 to unite the Mother Goddess’ worshipers world wide through their many expressions and manifestations and held more then 50 events around the World. In 2015, the celebration of the Wolrd Goddess Day will be still bigger.The purpose of the Project is grant to the Goddess one day of visibility to share Her many myths, stories and worship diversity, so everyone will remember or will know that the first religion of humanity was the Worship of the Goddess.
For many historical reasons the names of the Goddess and her myths have been forgotten and were relegated to mere folkloric curiosity in the Western world by many. The force and power of Her names were lost. Ancient temples are in ruins, ancient chants and invocations are not recited anymore. The many myths of the divine Goddess were set aside and now are part of the fairy tales, losing its sacredness and becoming mere stories only seen by a psychological prism or as sillys legend of ancient people.
John William Waterhouse – Ophelia
Nowdays, the Goddess is reentering into our modern life and bringing back all Her vitality, power, wisdom and healing through the many Pagan traditions that are revitalising her worship.
John William Waterhouse – Undine
She returns for several reasons. The Goddess is calling all who feel dissatisfied; she calls out all who have found in Western religions just political institutions focused only on a male dominant figure; She also calls for all who feel dissatisfied with the patriarchal religion inherited from their ancestors who have only contributed to sicken the world with their distorted and corrupted values.
Nowdays, in a staggered society imaired by centuries of patriarchy, heteronormativity and sexism, the Goddess is considered by many people the only way to reunite ouselves with the true Self, with our most inner Self. She is the only way to get rid of so many years of oppression that only brought differences, prejudices and wars. These centuries of patriarchal oppression were crucial to our society become what it is today: a lost generation.
So a World Goddess Day has never been such necessary as now!
The World Goddess Day this year onwards are foing to be celebrated always on the first Sunday of September. The date was chosen because September is the ninth month of the year and the number nine is one of the most sacred to the Goddess par excellence.
In 2015, this important date will be celebrated on SEPTEMBER 6th.
Pagans world wide are going to be conducting activities in groups or solitarily in honor to the Goddess.
Celebrate this day reuniting friends and loved ones and other Pagans to celebrate that occasion to make a choir with this worldwide celebration in honor to the Great Mother of Life.Below you can read some ideas about what you can do to celebrate the Goddess Day:
* Organise a meet in a park with other Goddess worshipers, sing and celebrate the Earth
* Participate in meditations to heal the Planet
* Organise a public ritual in honor of the Goddess
* Provide a short talk in your home or space for people to know Goddess origins of Goddess and the importance of Her rebirth
* Organise a spiral dance in parks and beaches, explaining to people about the meaning of this activity to honor the Goddess
* Make wind chimes with icons of the Goddess like Triskle, Triquerta, Triluna (Triple Moon), Crescent Moon and give them to your family and friends.
* Share flowers with your neighborhood, friends, loved ones or strangers as a gift and a blessing from the Goddess
* Along with other volunteers apply GODDESS HEALING or offer GODDESS BLESSING On hospitals, nursing homes or in your local community
In the stormy east-wind straining,
The pale yellow woods were waning,
The broad stream in his banks complaining,
Heavily the low sky raining Over tower’d Camelot;
Outside the isle a shallow boat
Beneath a willow lay afloat,
Below the carven stern she wrote,
The Lady of Shalott.
A cloud white crown of pearl she dight,
All raimented in snowy white
That loosely flew (her zone in sight
Clasp’d with one blinding diamond bright)
Her wide eyes fix’d on Camelot,
Though the squally east-wind keenly
Blew, with folded arms serenely
By the water stood the queenly
Lady of Shalott.
Painting “The Lady of Shalott” by John William Waterhouse
Poem “The Lady of Shalott” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson.
Imagine that you had the ability to design your own child. Would you prefer green or brown eyes? What color hair would you choose? Average intelligence or above average intelligence? Lean or athletic? The very thought of doing such a thing might seem outrageous to most people, but very few realize it has already happened. In 1980, a man named Robert Graham, an American eugenicist and businessman, founded the Repository for Germinal Choice, a sperm bank that only provided the sperm of geniuses and athletes with above average intelligence. Over the course of 19 years, nearly 200 baby geniuses were born under his eugenics “program”.
Graham was pessimistic about the future of humanity, fearing that mankind was in danger because natural selection had stopped working on human beings. He explained his views in a muscular 1971 book, The Future of Man. Over millenniums, nature’s brutality had strengthened the human gene pool, allowing the strong and smart to reproduce, while killing the weak before they could. But once man mastered his natural environment, Graham argued, he jumped the evolutionary track. Better living conditions allowed “retrograde humans” to reproduce. In modern America, thanks to cradle-to-grave social welfare programs, these incompetents and imbeciles were swamping the intelligent. This dysgenic crisis would surely bring communism and the regression of mankind. All that could save us, Graham warned, was “intelligent selection”: Our best specimens must have more children. Hence the Repository for Germinal Choice.
When taking into consideration that the women who received sperm from the Repository for Germinal Choice were, of average health and intelligence, the sperm he offered only simply increased the chances that the children would inherit favorable genes. This of course is a game of chance, but Graham, the Nobel Prize winner, was onto something. Over the past 35 years, there has been rapid advances in scientific knowledge of the human genome, and it is only a matter of time before “designer babies” become a part of everyday reality, for genetic screening is already being used around the world. But what does this mean for the human race at large? Isn’t this cleansing the human race, could this be also to a certain extent be very much like what the nazis were wishing to create back in the twentieth century?
A super race – really, What are some of the consequences associated with genetic modification? If we are capable of such a thing, what else are we capable of? Perhaps the most important question has yet to be asked: who and what is undesirable, and to whom? Graham’s belief that smarter and healthier individuals make for more productive members in a society is not his own, for there are plenty of individuals in the political and scientific arenas who have found logic in his reasoning.
It had taken thousands of years for the world’s population to reach 1 billion in 1800.
World population growth 500BC – 2025 (source BBC)
The above graph shows this pattern of accelerating growth (including the predicted population for 2025).
At present the world’s population is growing quickly, though this has not always been the case.
Until the 1800s the world’s population grew slowly for thousands of years.
In 1820 the world’s population reached one billion.
In the early 1970s, the world’s population reached three billion.
In 1999, less than 30 years later, the population doubled to six billion.
The global rate of population growth is now one billion every 15 years.
In 2012, the world population exceeded 7 billion. So, it took thousands of years to reach a billion people and it only took a little over 200 years to add another 6 billion. This can only mean that two hundred years from now, 13 billion people will be sharing our planets natural resources, which are already deemed insufficient for demand.
What do we do? Do we ensure our survival, along with all the other species on our planet by wiping out a large percentage of the population, or do we allow ourselves to go extinct when the last drop of water has met mouth and the last leaf has fallen to the ground?
Conspiracy: World leaders are plotting to depopulate the world and start fresh with a new and improved race of humans.
If we (those in power) choose the latter, know that it is not a probability, but rather an inevitability. If we choose the former, life will go on, and if so, for who? Intelligent and logical thinkers capable of preventing the very things that plague us now? If we are so overpopulated, then why do we look for ways to prolong life through medicine and science? Could it be said that our advances have backfired on us? Or just for some of us?
“Transhumanism (abbreviated as H+ or h+) is an international cultural and intellectual movement with an eventual goal of fundamentally transforming the human condition by developing and making widely available technologies to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities. Transhumanist thinkers study the potential benefits and dangers of emerging technologies that could overcome fundamental human limitations, as well as the ethics of developing and using such technologies. The most common thesis put forward is that human beings may eventually be able to transform themselves into beings with such greatly expanded abilities as to merit the label posthuman” “Eugenics is a set of beliefs and practices which aims at improving the genetic quality of the human population. It is a social philosophy advocating the improvement of human genetic traits through the promotion of higher rates of sexual reproduction for people with desired traits (positive eugenics), or reduced rates of sexual reproduction and sterilization of people with less-desired or undesired traits (negative eugenics), or both. Alternatively, gene selection rather than “people selection” has recently been made possible through advancements in gene editing.“ Wiki
The deaf can now hear. The Blind can now see. The crippled can now walk. The sick now cured (and the healthy made sick?) What does all of this have to do with each other? Well one would have to read the guidelines on “America’s Stonehenge”, a monument erected in 1980, in Elbert County, GA.
Immediately below this is the outline of a square, inside which is written: Let these be guidestones to an Age of Reason
Erected 22 March 1980 and Situated in the “new world” These guidestones are ten guidelines in 8 modern languages on six granite slabs, with a small message at the bottom in 4 ancient languages: Babylonian, Classical Greek, Sanskrit, and Egyptian hieroglyphs. It’s creation remains a mystery, for no one knows who put the slabs there.
On the left side of the tablet is the following column of text:
1. channel through stone indicates celestial pole.
2. horizontal slot indicates annual travel of sun.
3. sunbeam through capstone marks noontime throughout the year
Author: R.C. Christian (a pseudonyn) [sic]
Sponsors: A small group of Americans who seek the Age of Reason
A Time Capsule is Placed six feet below this spot which is to be Opened on ……… The words appear as shown under the time capsule heading; no dates are engraved.
R C Christian = 732 in English Gematria
732 + 237 = 969 Speed of Saturn
The guidelines …
1) Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
2)Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
Side note: With the world’s population at 7 billion+ as of 2012, some find it bothersome that the first guideline calls for maintaining a world population of 500 million, a number we had already far exceeded in 1980 when the monument was built.
3)Unite humanity with a living new language.
4)Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
5)Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
6)Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
7)Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
8)Balance personal rights with social duties.
9)Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
10)Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature
The most widely agreed-upon interpretation of the stones is that they describe the basic concepts required to rebuild a devastated civilisation
Earlier this year, 2015 there was a great buzz on the internet over the discovery of a new “CUBE” that was inserted into the GEORGIA GUIDE STONES — the two visible sides of the cube originally read “20” “14”
(line drawings made by Last Trumpet Blast)
A decode provided by Mark Gray
Coincidently, TISHA B’AV = 911 in Gematria
Are we to assume, that 2016 is going to be a depopulation event ?
I’m also intrigued by the possibility that we are being encouraged to look at Bible verses involving the letters and numbers on the cube. Some potentially relevant examples include: “the stone already taken away” in John 20 and the same removal of the stone in Mark 16.
On Thursday, September 25th, 2015 at 8:30 a.m, Pope Francis will formally address the United Nations General Assembly in New York City. With the assembly celebrating its 70th anniversary, the attendance and address of Pope Francis are guaranteed to make it a special one. This year’s assembly will also involve huge decisions for its members concerning sustainable development, climate change and much more. With many nations adopting the post 2015 SDA which it is shockingly similar to the guide-stones.

The untranslatable word ka was used by the ancient Egyptians to refer to that aspect of men and gods that is connected with the creative life force. The ka is the aspect that differentiates a living person from a dead one. The ka came into existence at the moment of birth, and was a kind ofdoppelgänger of the individual. Sometimes the ka was even depicted as a slightly smaller figure alongside the living person. The god Khnum is occasionally depicted seated at a potter’s wheel making both the physical body of the person and his ka
The pharaoh Awibre Hor walking through the Narrow Gate, with a Ka on his head, Egyptian museum, Cairo. Wood sculpture, 13th dynasty of Egypt, found at the Dahahour site. Height 170 cm Width 27 cm. Inventory number JE30948.
After someone died, the ka continued to exist (and thus also the person, because the body was only the visible expression of ka-power) and continued to need to be fed. This is why the ka was supplied with food through food offerings, offered to the false door in the tomb or through depictions of food on the walls of the tomb. The ka was expected to partake of the life-giving force contained in them. In recognition of this life-giving force, the Egyptians used to say ‘to your ka’ at mealtimes.
Awibre Hor statue
Tomb statues were considered to be statues of the ka of the deceased person, and sometimes they bore a ka symbol, as is the case with the statue of Hor. The ka was represented as a pair of open arms, held upwards. These arms symbolized the transmittance of the ka force from father to son, god to man, king to man. This transmittance was also expressed in personal names which emphasized the continuity of the ka in different generations, for example ‘my ka repeats itself’. When a ka was transmitted from god to god or from god to man, it was the ‘indwelling’ of a divine force in a different god or person that was meant. Sometimes several kas are referred to; the creator gods and the king could have multiple kas, but so too could ordinary people. The names given in the Late Period to the kas of Re indicate that the principle of multiple kas is not just a multiplication of power, but was regarded as a splitting up of the ka force into various aspects, such as splendour, fame, life span, power, food, seeing, hearing, knowing. These aspects were made independent and perceived as the imperishable principles of life itself, not linked to the life of an individual.
