The Second Birth of Hyperborea

                       From "The Pyramids" book by Valery Uvarov

Before we briefly review the main stages that the bearers of knowledge had to go through after the terrible catastrophe, we shall make a small, but very important digression. There are two reasons for doing so. The first is a desire to cast light on one of the most significant and mysterious chapters of our past – the great land of Hyperborea. Many thousands of years ago it was lost from the map of history, becoming a phantom and the unattainable dream of researchers and travellers. Its mysterious power drew many but there were few who comprehended the spiritual magnetism that attracted those who sought the ancient cradle of humanity, as if they all experienced an irresistible urge to find the land in which they pent their childhood and which was trodden by their great ancestors.

Russian bylinas (epic poems), the Indian Rigveda, the Iranian Avesta, Chinese and Tibetan historical chronicles, German epic poetry, Celtic and Scandinavian mythology all describe a very ancient northern land, a near-paradise, in which a Golden Age prevailed. That land was settled in ancient times by glorious people – the children of the “gods”. Those among us today who are related to them carry a special gene, a special spiritual force – the Khvarno – which once it has been reborn like the fabled Phoenix, while play a saving and turning-point role in the fate of civilization. Those few who felt this call sought the legendary Hyperborea, the “Happy Isle, where from the dawn of life on Earth the Fountain of Life flows”, in order to get in touch with it, to awaken in themselves the ancient Khvarno, but time long and strictly preserved the secret.

The discovery of Hyperborea is not only the key to nations recognizing their special spiritual and genetic kinship. It is a step towards the great spiritual reunion after millennia of separation and a second reason to accomplish that which our distant ancestors strove to achieve. In its profound content this material is dedicated to all the researchers who have attempted irrespective of the difficulty to restore historical justice, preserving for posterity the memory of Hyperborea – the Arctic ancestral homeland of our civilization.

Thousands of years ago great Atlantis was swallowed by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Many researchers believe that the same lot befell Hyperborea and that it now rests at the bottom of the Arctic Ocean. But ancient Tibetan tradition says that:

«The White Island is the only place that escaped the general fate of all the continents after the catastrophe. It cannot be destroyed by either water or fire, because it is the Eternal Land».

 

Amazingly Tibet has not only preserved the memory of Hyperborea, it is also the starting point of a path that leads to its heart, to the world’s greatest sacred centre, to the Great Pyramid of Meru and its surrounding dolmens and pyramids. In order to see the “path” leading there we need to use the directions of the Ancients and Mercator’s map (fig.13), published by his son in 1595.

Many cartographers have tried to solve the mystery of that map. Scholars encountered insuperable difficulties to understanding it, because in creating it Mercator employed three different sources33 – three separate maps produced by different cartographers using different projections and with different degrees of precision. But the main peculiarity that researchers failed to spot and that Mercator himself did not take into account when making his map is that the source maps depicted the area of the Arctic Basin at different periods in the Earth’s geological history – showing the contours of Hyperborea and the surrounding continents either before the flood and the shift of the planet’s axis or afterwards. As a result confusion reigns in Mercator’s map, a confusion that scholars have not been able to resolve, leaving us to look for the answers ourselves. Before we do so, let us start with the main thing.

Numerous ancient sources testify that Hyperborea was located at the North Pole. Among the others, the ancient Indian epic Mahabharata tells us:

«In the north of the Milky Sea (the Arctic Ocean) there is a large island known by the name Svetadvip – a land of the blessed. There is the navel, the centre of the world around which the Sun, Moon and stars rotate».

 

Following the common opinion, Mercator placed Hyperborea at the North Pole, not suspecting that due to the catastrophe by 11000 B.C. the angle of the Earth’s axis of the rotation and the northern geographical pole had shifted. Nobody has carried out on this score. Practically nothing has been written about the consequences and so we have to work things out for ourselves. Now we shall try to discover which way the Earth’s axis shifted and by how much.

To do so, we recall that the northern side of the great pyramid of the Atlanteans faced one of the sides of Meru. But Atlantis is hidden beneath the waters of the ocean. On the other hand, Kailas in Tibet has survived. For convenience let us view Kailas from above with the aid of aerial photography (fig. 30). This picture was taken from a height of over 20,000 metres and its sides are strictly aligned with the present day points of the compass. The central arrow shows the direction of today’s North Pole.

Fig. 30  View of Kailas from above
Fig. 30 View of Kailas from above

Note the plane of the north wall of Kailas. It does not face north, but is turned 15º towards the west. But if we accept that in ancient times this wall faced Meru, then we need to draw a line perpendicular to this “reflector” and extend it northwards to see where it takes us. This has been done in (fig. 31).

Fig. 31

After covering a distance of over 7000 kilometres we come to Greenland (the Great White Island). Now in order to pin down the location of the ancient pole, we need a second bearing from some edifice in the western hemisphere that was oriented on the sacred centre of the world in ancient times. Then the place where they intersect will point us to the right area. Fortunately Kailas is not the only object connected with Meru that still exists. Another structure oriented upon it (in accordance with the ancient canon) is the Maya pyramid complex – the “City of the Gods”, Teotihuacan.

Fig.32  Teotihuacan from a height of 5470 metres.
Fig.32 Teotihuacan from a height of 5470 metres.

On this photograph, taken from a height of over five kilometres (fig. 32) we can see that the central “avenue” of Teotihuacan, that the Aztecs out of ignorance called the Road of the Dead, deviates 15º east from due north. In the builders’ conception the “avenue” running through the whole complex to the Pyramid of the Earth9 (Moon) showed the direction to Meru – the planet’s chief pyramid. It is no coincidence that the “City of the Gods” was called “the dwelling place of those who know the way to the gods”. Extrapolating the “avenue” that begins by the Kukulkan pyramid in a northerly direction, we become witnesses to a discovery that puts everything in its place. This avenue leads us straight to the great “White Island” and Meru (fig. 33). Beautifully neat, isn’t it?

Fig. 33  The orientation of Kailas and Teotihuacan on Meru
Fig. 33 The orientation of Kailas and Teotihuacan on Meru

Thus the three bearings – Teotihuacan’s “road to the gods”, Chinese pyramids and the perpendicular of the northern face of Mount Kailas crossed on the territory of Greenland, indicating not only the place where the North Pole once was. This is the heart of Hyperborea – the ancient sacred centre of the world. It was on this spot 18000 years ago that the Neferu landed on Earth, after which a decisive turn occurred in the evolutionary history of human civilization.

In this context it is also worth recalling Kuiva – the “flying man” (fig. 22), an ancient rock painting on the north-west shore of Lake Seydozero. In deep antiquity this was the site of the Hyperborean Tilmun, where priests who survived the flood founded a religious settlement. If you stand right in front of the image and look at the “flying man” (fig. 34), then your gaze is directed straight at Meru and the surface bearing the image is perpendicular to this bearing. Shortly before the flood the Neferu departed hastily in this direction, abandoning their bases on Earth.

Fig. 34
Fig. 34

Now, using the same method in reverse, we shall determine the location of the smallish island in the Atlantic Ocean that in ancient times was the site of the Great Pyramid of the Atlanteans. To do so we draw a straight line directly south from Meru (perpendicular to the Kailas–Meru line, as shown in, fig. 35). Incidentally, on Hajji Ahmed’s map and other ancient maps, this line was the prime meridian. Then we take another bearing from the western face of Mount Kailas (Fig. 36) westwards until it intersects with this prime meridian (the line from Meru to the Atlantean pyramid). It is in this region that we should search for the legendary pyramid of Atlantis. This spot is the centre of symmetry in Hajji Ahmed’s map, showing that the co-ordinates of the Atlantean pyramid served as a “bench mark” for the cartographers of ancient Atlantis, whose maps that survived the flood were kept in the Library of Alexandria and later were removed by the Turks to Constantinople.

Now let us examine the peculiarities of Mercator’s mysterious 1595 map. In order to understand all its oddities, we need to compare it with modern relief maps of the Arctic seabed. To begin with, we restore historical justice and shift Mercator’s Hyperborea to the site of the North Pole before the flood (Fig. 37).

Fig. 37
Fig. 37

As you can see, Hyperborea is a good match for Greenland and the northern part of America. The waterway running southwards from the centre of Hyperborea precisely fits the section of coastline on the west side of Greenland in the area of Baffin Bay and the Davis Strait. The mouth of this river emerges precisely in a bay of the Labrador Sea. The waterway running eastwards ends in the estuary of rivers entering fjords in the area of King Christian X Land between Cape Nordostrundingen and Traill Island. The mouths of the river carrying water northwards across Hyperborea enters exactly a bay of the Lincoln Sea.

Let us now turn our attention to the north-east coastline of Mercator’s Hyperborea. On the modern map of Greenland, this place corresponds to Cape Nordostrundingen, which is circled in (Fig. 38).

On this part of Mercator’s map Hyperborea almost touches a continent that he labelled “ASIAE PARS” (a part of Asia). On the modern map of the seabed, the shape of this continent precisely corresponds to the lines of the north of the Eurasian plateau that is now beneath the waters of the Arctic Ocean. Take a good look: here Mercator’s map very precisely describes the relief of the seabed, indicating what enormous expanses of land lay to the north of Siberia before the flood.

Fig. 38 Cape Nordostrundingen

In the opinion of some Russian scholars, this part of Siberia disappeared under water only 2500 years ago. Marine geologists reckon that this sector of the continental shelf was dry land between 18000 and 8000 years ago.34 There is also a school of thought that this area was land only in much earlier times. If we adopt the last point of view, then we are confronted with a unique situation. In this event the existence of an ancient highly-advanced civilization that mapped this area in the remote prehistoric past becomes obvious and provides the only possible explanation for the accuracy of Mercator’s map in this area. If it was not some ancient highly-advanced civilization, then who did map so precisely an area of land that became submerged, some specialists believe, hundreds of thousands of years ago?

Of the enormous territory at the north of the Eurasian plateau that was once dry land today all that remains above water is Spitsbergen, Franz-Josef Land, Novaya Zemlya and the New Siberian Islands. They are visible, because once all those islands were mountainous elevations on the north of the Eurasian plateau (Fig. 39).

Fig. 39

On Mercator’s map a landmass dissected by mighty rivers is depicted in this place – the north of Siberia (before the flood), evidently copied from a map of antediluvian origin. It is remarkable that on modern maps showing the seabed relief in this region one can clearly see the channels of almost all the great Siberian rivers running northwards (as troughs in the underwater shelf) for almost a thousand kilometres beyond the present coastline (Fig. 40).

Fig. 40 The channels of the great Siberian rivers on a maps of the seabed of the Arctic Ocean.

The attempt to reconcile the information on the first (antediluvian, fig. 175) map with what was depicted on the second map(postdiluvian, fig. 176), led to Mercator placing Novaya Zemlya, Spitsbergen, the Kola peninsula and adjoining areas 1850 kilometres (around 1150 miles) west of their true positions (fig. 41). Iceland and the later submerged island of Ogigia35, copied from the pre-flood source ended up between Spitsbergen and Novaya Zemlya, i.e. 15º east of their true positions (fig. 42).

Fig. 41
Fig. 42

Due to his ignorance of the geological history of the Earth, Mercator depicted on his map one and the same region of the Arctic twice over (before and after the flood) shifted 15º from each other. To be fair it should be stated that such slips can be found on other old maps, such as the portulan of Piri Reis.

The large island depicted to the south of Hyperborea is not Greenland as some researchers believe, along with Mercator himself. It is the Labrador peninsula. The difficulty in identifying this “island” is due to the fact that it migrated to Mercator’s map from a badly distorted version of an ancient antediluvian map that had a different projection and orientation. The Labrador peninsula is shown on the map the way its (pre-flood) coastline would have been seen by a cartographer sitting in space above Iceland at a height of around 7000 kilometres! For comparison look at fig. 43, which shows the relief of the seabed in this region from that height.

Fig. 43. Comparison of the coastline of the north-eastern part of British America and the Labrador peninsula from Mercator’s map. 1. Flemish Cap Bank. 2. Great Newfoundland Bank. 3. Cape now under water in the area of the Gulf of Maine. 4. Cape now under water in the area between the St Charles peninsula and Goose Bay. 5. Cape and part of the coastline of the former shape of the Labrador peninsula in the area of Cape Chidley, beyond which the Hudson Strait begins.

Cartographic material of this kind before the flood could only have been obtained using flying machines, advanced technology and the strong mathematical apparatus necessary to produce specific projections (spherical trigonometry). As we all know, after the flood the mediaeval cartographers had no such knowledge or technology.

All the details examined above illustrate well that we have indeed found Hyperborea. Mercator’s map that provides the starting point for our research was compiled from several component maps on which certain islands, large landmasses and even whole continents were displaced in respect to each other and to their own correct location. The cause of such discrepancy is the change in the angle of the Earth’s axis after the asteroid impact.

Universal amnesia regarding some of the most important events in the history of the Earth led to a few surviving maps drawn before the flood being used by seafarers in combination with other created afterwards. Quite often the result was that, navigating by the stars and old maps, seafarers missed their intended destination. It is known that Columbus used one such map on his famous voyage. Checking his ships’ course against the ancient map, he believed that he was on the point of striking and, but failed to find it where he reckoned it was. In his search he had to sail on for almost 1000 miles more, running the serious risk of mutiny. At last he made a landfall on San Salvador, or some nearby island. In his book The Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings, Charles Hapgood writes:

«Now, if you look at San Salvador on our map and not it's longitude on the main grid, you will see that it lies West of the 60th meridian on that grid instead of 74 1/4 degree West Longitude where it actually should be. But if you swing the map around and find the longitude of the island on the special Caribbean grid, it turns out to be 80.5 degrees West. The trouble that Columbus ran into may now be understood. His error in not understanding the map he had may have led to a mistake of about 14 degrees or about 840 miles in his estimates of the distance across the Atlantic, and thus nearly caused the failure of the expedition».

The shift in the Earth’s axis took place in a south-west direction, since “the sky shifted northwards”, which inevitably led to the alteration of co-ordinate values, particularly those relating to latitude. It is no coincidence that Admiral Morrison, who studied documents of Christopher Columbus’s first voyage, observed:

«On the night of Nov. 2 (1492) two days before the full moon, he endeavored to establish his position by taking the altitude of the North Star with his wooden quadrant. After applying the slight correction he decided that Puerto Gibara, actually in Lat 21 degrees 06' N, was in 42 degrees N, the Latitude of Cape Cod (140:258)»

Today, thanks to the advances in science and technology it is possible to obtain a map of any section of the globe that reflects reality with a high degree of precision. The discrepancies of the ancient maps no longer cause us the problems that are indirect evidence of the fall of the asteroid and shift of the Earth’s axis. Nevertheless, the fact of the catastrophe and its consequences for the future of humanity are still overlooked in, for example, astrology, as a result of which the practically useful knowledge of the interaction between the cosmos and the human being has lost its true power. This is because as a result of the asteroid impact 13660 years ago the Earth made a “jump in time”. This jump influenced not only the astrological clock, which began telling a different time, but also the planetary energy clock that sets the vital rhythm for all living things on Earth. Thousands of years have passed, but the world’s astrologers have still not checked the clock they use in their predictions and horoscopes with the astronomical clock of cosmic rhythms, unwittingly deluding both themselves and their public. In order to prove this, we shall reconstruct the picture of the consequences of the tragedy from ancient texts that tell us that as a result of the asteroid impact:

«…the whole world turned upside down and the stars fell from the sky. This happened because a huge planet fell upon the Earth… at that moment ‘the heart of the Lion reached the first minute of the head of the Crab».

In order to understand what lies behind these words, let us recall to mind some of the foundations of the knowledge of our ancestors. From ancient times there existed only one science with the aid of which it was possible to convey across millennia with a high degree of precision information about the most important events and dates in the Earth’s history. That science is astronomy. To be dated precisely, an event should be “pinned” to the position of the stars and the sunrise. The role of instrument for such “pinning” was played by special constructions: observatories using the horizon, obelisks, pyramids or the Great Sphinx at Giza, which are oriented precisely on the cardinal compass points. According to its builders’ concept, the Sphinx was an astronomical marker to which end its body pointed precisely due east, to the point where the Sun rose on the horizon at the spring equinox (fig. 44).

Fig. 44 The Sphinx looking at the rising Sun.

The ancient astronomers devoted their main attention to the sign of the Zodiac that determined the astrological “age” – the one that appeared over the horizon just before sunrise on the day of the spring equinox. This “heliacal” constellation marked the Sun’s “place of rest”. It was referred to as ”the Bearer of the Sun” and also the main “pillar” of heaven.

The position of the Sun on that day was considered the pointer of the “clock” of precession (oscillation) of the Earth’s axis37, which determined the height of the stars and constellations, something that slowly but surely changes in respect of the point of the equinoctial sunrise on the horizon.

Precession means that this point gradually shifts from one constellation (sign of the Zodiac) to another, passing eventually though all twelve signs.

Now we need to recall that the succession of signs of the Zodiac in the Great Celestial Circle over a period of 25920 years takes place in anticlockwise order. That is to say that if you continually observe the position of the rising sun at the equinox against the background of the constellations, you get the impression that the constellations are moving all together along the line of the ecliptic (the path of the Sun) in an anticlockwise direction, dropping one after another below the horizon.28

Judging from the ancient text cited above and the corresponding image in the Dendera Zodiac, 13660 years ago, in the year of the catastrophe, the Sun rose at the spring equinox in the first minute of the “Head of the Crab”. That means that the disaster took place when the Sun was between Leo and Cancer (fig. 45).

Fig. 45 Part of a modern star chart with the Zodiacal constellations of Leo, Cancer and Gemini marked

Since the text of the miraculously surviving warning of the coming catastrophe30 was intended for the priests of Atlantis, the date on it was naturally linked to the horizon by which the Atlantean priests “set their clock”, observing the sunrise from their country, most probably from the island that was the location of their main pyramid. So, when reconstructing what happened, we take that factor into account, as well as the fact that the North Pole was located at Mount Meru. Accordingly due to the displacement of the gridlines, East will be shifted 15˚ southwards along the old prime meridian.38

To make things clearer, we have reproduced this astronomical situation in fig. 46.

Fig. 46 A reconstruction of the view of the eastern sky from the location of the Atlantean pyramid.

Like a computer screen, this image carries us through time and space to a spot a few dozen kilometres above the Earth in an area south of the main archipelago of Atlantis. In front of us is the island that is the location of their main communications centre – the great pyramid of the Atlanteans. The arrow points from there eastwards to the place where the Sun rises at the equinox and the sky beyond. This arrow points to the “first minute of the first degree of the head of the Crab”. That is how the sky and stars looked on the day of the catastrophe. Now imagine off to the left, from the direction of northern Siberia across northern Europe and then to the south of the British Isles (that were then still joined to the continent) a gigantic asteroid comes hurtling south-westwards. A couple of minutes pass and the planet is shaken by a terrible impact. An ancient text says of this collision:

«...the pillar of the sky collapsed. The Earth was shaken to its very foundation. The sky began falling northward. The Sun and stars changed their course. The whole system of the Universe was thrown into disorder. The Sun was eclipsed and the planets changed their tracks…»

 

Fig. 47

The impact of the asteroid at an angle to the plane of the Earth’s rotation caused the planet’s axis of rotation to alter, tipping the North Pole southwards (fig. 47). At first the pole tipped 20° from its original angle39 which before the Flood was around 9˚. With time, under the influence of inertia, the tilt of the axis gradually changed.40 According to the ancient text after the asteroid impact the Earth partially turned over. Then the points of the compass changed places. The Sun rose on the western horizon and set in the east. In his History Herodotus wrote:

«At that time, so the priests said, the sun rose four times not in its usual place: that is, twice it rose where it now sets and twice it set where it now rises».

The Chinese treatise Huai-Nan-Tzu describes this event and the change in the tilt of the Earth’s axis in this way:

«The celestial vault fractured, the Earthly balance was broken. The sky tilted to the north-west. The Sun and the stars moved. The Earth to the south-east proved hollow and so the water and silt rushed there…

In those distant times the four poles were destroyed; the nine continents broke apart… fire blazed constantly, the waters raged incessantly».

The terrible impact slightly slowed the Earth’s speed of rotation, which at first caused a colossal tidal wave that swept away everything in its path. Then the tilt of the axis and the retarded rotation disrupted the mechanism of precession and “the whole system of the Universe was thrown into disorder.” The priests who kept track of all that took place left a record that the constellations lying along the line of the ecliptic changed the direction of their precessional motion to the opposite. The Ancient Egyptian papyrus asserted that the seasons changed:

«Winter came like summer; the months followed in reverse order and the hours became confused».

Instead of the customary, natural movement anticlockwise in respect of the Sun rising on the horizon, the constellations began to roll up from behind the horizon in clockwise order.

The arrow to the horizon in fig. 46 pointing to the “the Sun’s place of rest” before the fall of the asteroid, in the first minute of the head of Cancer, began slowly to shift backwards (down) into the constellation of Leo (fig. 48). Precessional (Zodiacal) time began to run backwards.

Fig. 48. Reconstruction of the sky in the Giza area.

Some time after the catastrophe the thing mentioned in the warning received by the priests occurred. Astronomically – after rising in the first minute of the head of the Crab in the year of the catastrophe, the position of subsequent sunrises began to move backwards along (relatively) the line of the ecliptic, entering the “heart of the Lion”. In terms of the Zodiac, moving anticlockwise, “the first minute of the head of the Crab entered the heart of the Lion”. This movement is also confirmed by the Dendera Zodiac, in which Cancer has changed its position on the line of the ecliptic, shifting backwards towards Leo (fig. 49).

The zodiacal event described in the ancient papyrus did not take place immediately. “The backward course of zodiacal time” lasted until the force of inertia and “external interference” led to the acceleration of the Earth’s rotation, and the precessional mechanism began to work in the usual fashion. The hiccup in the precessional mechanism and the first, most critical phase of instability in the Earth’s parameters lasted several hundred years. In the course of this period, the tilt of the planet’s axis, that soon after the impact of the asteroid had been 20˚ from its original value, gradually diminished, but not all the way back to its former position. Eventually the Earth’s geographic North Pole ended up displaced by 15°.

Only 1153 years after the terrible catastrophe, when the planet had already been in a relatively stable state for a few hundred years, did the descendants of the priests, who had left Atlantis in the flotilla of Neef Teunis and settled in the Mediterranean basin, complete the highly difficult task of revising the basic data on cyclicality and precessional rhythms. Judging by the time scale of the Dendera Zodiac the work was completed sometime around 10512–10500 B.C. In the beginning, using knowledge that had once been received from the Neferu the priests erected an array of obelisks with adjoining temple complexes certain distances apart. Then, observing the passage of the stars above the obelisks at night and studying the shadows they cast by day (fig. 110), the priests made the necessary astronomical calculations. With the aid of this primitive, yet highly effective system, the priests obtained data on the length of the new precessional cycle, which after the asteroid impact and the shift in the Earth’s axis had length of approximately 25920 years. Before the catastrophe, the tilt of the axis was around 9˚ and consequently the precessional cycle was shorter.

Knowledge of the precessional cycle was vital to the priests. It made it possible to carry out the calculations needed to produce a calendar and to create a system of measures that would go on to form the basis of the Ancient Egyptian Canon which generations of priests used in the planning and construction of edifices attuned to the main energy rhythms of the Earth and cosmos.

Work of this kind to re-evaluate cyclicality was carried out not only in Egypt, but also in China where, an ancient text tells us, the emperor sent out messengers to the four corners of the darkened world, so as to re-establish the location of north, south, east and west and compile a new calendar.

Despite the fact that 12506 years ago the Atlantean priests carried out a synchronization of earthly and astronomical clocks and left records of this, astrologers to this day ignore the corrections made back then and continue to base their calculations on a cosmo-planetary cyclicality that was critically changed by the fateful asteroid impact 13660 years ago (counting back from 2007 A.D.).

In order to shed light on events and, comparing them in passing with the astrological chronography, we turn again to the depictions of the Zodiac, of which there were several in the Ancient Egyptian temple at Dendera.

Thanks to their well-developed astronomy, the system of calendars in Ancient Egypt was superbly worked out. The calendar and time-scale of the Dendera Zodiacs was based on more ancient texts and prolonged astronomical observation. To correctly understand the records of prehistoric events let us examine the time-scale of the circular Dendera Zodiac fig. 49.

The scale in the outer circle of the Zodiac is made up of figures known as Decans. These are time. The Decans are walking in an anticlockwise direction. This indicates that they are not annual Decans, but the Decans of the Great Celestial Circle, the length of which in the Dendera Zodiac is not constant. This is natural as before the asteroid impact and the change in the tilt of the Earth’s axis there was one precessional cycle, afterwards another. Thus the density or concentration of the stepping Decans before the arrow A (in Cancer) differs from that after the catastrophe, in the sector between arrows B and C.

Before examining the peculiarities of the timescale on the Dendera Zodiac, we remind you once again that after the catastrophe one Great Celestial Circle (precessional cycle) became equal to 25920 years. The Zodiacal Age (the length of time the Sun is in each of the twelve constellations) is equal to 2160 years and is made up of three Decans, each of 720 years (judging by the Dendera Zodiac this is not an indisputable fact, but it is traditionally taken to be so).

Fig. 49

The position of the Sun today is marked on the dial of the Dendera Zodiac by the arrow C.41 This is Decan N18 (fig. 49). The moment of the catastrophe is shown by arrow A, which marks the zone on the line of the ecliptic where the first minute of the first degree of the head of the Crab was at the moment of the catastrophe (the Sun on the cusp of Cancer). The event and the order in which things happened are reflected in the Zodiac in the following way.

Moving through the constellations anticlockwise along the line of the ecliptic, the sunrise at the spring equinox in the year of the catastrophe took place in the first minute of the first degree of the head of the Crab. Arrow A, showing this date on the zodiacal clock, touches the first minute of the first degree of the circle in the zone where the head of the Crab should be on the line of the ecliptic. At that moment the disaster took place which led to Cancer making an unnatural shift backwards and upwards, occupying a place above the head of Leo. The asteroid impact disrupted the precessional mechanism and reversed zodiacal time. The hand of our zodiacal clock moved two Decans back to point B and stopped where «the Heart of the Lion entered the first minute of the head of the Crab», or more accurately the first minute of the head of the Crab entered the heart of the lion (by right ascension). From that moment the precessional clock resumed its accustomed (anticlockwise) movement.

In order to get an idea of the duration of the “wrinkle in time” during which the Sun twice passed through the area of Leo and Cancer, we turn to the rectangular or linear Dendera Zodiac, part of which is reproduced in fig. 50.

Fig. 50. The linear Dendera Zodiac

The symbolism of the linear Zodiac differs somewhat from that of the round one because the circular Zodiac reflects the situation in astrological time, the linear one reflects it in physical time, which always moves forwards.

In the left and right halves of the linear Zodiac the Decans (time) sail in boats along the body of the goddess Nut, who symbolizes cosmic space. Each boat should contain one Decan if they reflect the normal course of events. Let us begin by looking at the left-hand side. The direction of the Decans’ movement – top to bottom on the left, then moving over to the right, expresses anticlockwise motion as on the round Zodiac.

Beneath the constellation of Leo Decans 1 and 2 are depicted, each in its own boat. Everything is proceeding normally. Then Nut gives birth to the Scarab (Cancer). Time shifts to the right half. The two halves are the symbolic division of the scale of time (history) into two parts: the left before the flood, the right after (the birth of a new time).

In the second half, in the sector of the new-born Scarab (Cancer), at first a little boat floats along the body of Nut containing a Cobra-Decan standing on a lotus (3), but ahead of it are three figures together in a single boat (4). Here is the overlap. This section is marked by the circle.

Three Decans in one boat is an indication of an exceptional event, when three Decans were crammed into the time span of one. Three Decans ended up in one boat because after the catastrophe the Sun recoiled zodiacally two Decans backwards and then resumed its normal motion along the line of the ecliptic through the Decan (1), making a total of three. In other words, in the time allotted to one Decan the Sun passed through three Decans in the sky, which accords with what is shown on the circular Dendera Zodiac.

Combining the testimony of both Zodiacs, it is possible to state with assurance that the entire course of the event in zodiacal terms was as follows: the Earth passed through the Age of Leo and entered the Age of Cancer, spending the first minute of the first degree there, that is to say, one shortened Decan. Therefore the boat in which the Cobra sits is a small one. And then comes the catastrophe. In terms of the zodiac the Earth makes a “leap in time” recoiling backwards into the Age of Leo. Then, passing once more through the zone from the heart of the Lion to the Crab, the Earth returned to the place where it had been at the moment of catastrophe. Thus the Earth went through part of the Age of Leo and the initial Decan of the Age of Cancer twice.

The little Decan (3) after which comes the boat with three Decans (4) indicates that the period from the catastrophe and “the breakdown of the precessional mechanism” or “recoil of zodiacal time” to the restoration of the mechanism of precession was brief in comparison with the normal course of zodiacal time in which three Decans of 720 years are equal to an Age of 2160 years. In the framework of physical time it all took place in the course of a single Decan.

Let us return to the circular Dendera Zodiac. From the point B when, after the restoration of the precessional mechanism, the Sun resumed its normal motion along the line of the ecliptic, if we count off the “new era”, just over 18 complete Decans have passed. If we divide the number of years since the catastrophe (13660) by the duration of a single Decan (720 years) we arrive at a figure of 18.9 Decans. The difference between the timescale in the Dendera Zodiac and simple arithmetic calculation comes to 0,9 Decans. Converting that into years, we get a figure of 648. This means that the “wrinkle in time” (the backward shift of zodiacal time) amounted to something over 600 years.

All these peculiarities with the Decans (in the compilation of the Zodiacs, taking into account the margin of error due to the gradual, almost imperceptible change in the tilt of the Earth’s axis) produce the discrepancy of 608 years that exists between modern astronomy and astrology.

Lacking a belief in the profundity of the Ancients’ knowledge, neither astronomers nor astrologers have even thought to seek an explanation for this obvious divergence in their views from the Egyptians. Meanwhile Egyptologists, archaeologists and historians are insufficiently versed in the fundamental sciences to, at the very least, properly formulate the question. [40]

In practical terms, the events described above led to the world’s zodiacal clock today showing the incorrect time – everything has long since changed. Yet not in a single publication, nor in conversations with professional astrologers will you manage to find out the reason why astrologically the Earth is considered to have already entered the Age of Aquarius. The spring equinox, the event that determines the name of the Age, occurred on 18 March in 2006. On that day the sunrise showed that roughly three-fifths of the distance through the constellation of Pisces had been covered and that the transition of the equinoctial sunrise into the constellation of Aquarius will take place in another 608 years. The International Astronomical Union has designated 2614 as the date the Age of Aquarius will start. It’s quite easy to work this out for yourself by looking attentively at the sky and doing a little work with a calculator. Thus people who travel the ocean of life trusting in the astrologers and astrological charts have found themselves (and will continue to do so) in the same position as Christopher Columbus, trying to find America with an antediluvian map. As you will recall, he missed his intended destination by almost a thousand miles! The same thing awaits those who try to orientate themselves in the confused currents of life using an old astrological chart. In practice the astrological rhythms of horoscopes do not in any way accord with the real rhythms of cosmo-energetic and cosmo-social cycles; hence astrology exists in an abstract time and so is still not considered a science and exists in a state of discontinuity with reality.

In concluding this section, it is worth noting that the main motive for the conclusion drawn above is not connected with the ethics of astrology. There are things incomparably more important. Astronomers and astrophysicists who study the question of an asteroid threat state that the Earth collides with a substantial cosmic body less than 100 metres across once every hundred years and with one over 100 metres across once every 5000 years. A collision with an asteroid a kilometre across is possible once in 300,000 years. Once in a million years a collision with something over five kilometres across is a possibility.

The surviving ancient chronicles and our research summarized above shows that the real picture is not so optimistic. In the past 16,000 years large asteroids, dozens of kilometres across, have struck the Earth twice: 13660 years ago (Azore's asteroid) and 2500 years before that (Pacific asteroid).
