Stairway to Heaven

Egyptian Concept of the solid core of Mars being prepared for launch carrying the Pharaoh.

Someone recently accused Cyclic Catastrophism of being a clone of Zechriah Sitchin’s work.  No one who has read my books or posts thoroughly could come to this conclusion.  Nevertheless, some of his English translations, particularly of Egyptian hieroglyphs have supplied details reinforcing the Cyclic Catastrophism scenario.  Language translation is only the first step in understanding ancient texts. The second step is the interpretation of the intent in the original authors mind. I maintain that all the ancient texts written prior to 700 BC were meant to document all-consuming close encounters of Venus, Mars and Mercury with the Earth. These disturbed its rotation, induced innumerable earthquakes and caused 5000 meter high stationary tides hundreds of times between 3700 and 700 BC. In fact, the word god was the same as glowing (body) in every ancient culture.  Sitchin imagined one very distant planet Nibiru (never observed), the nearest approach of which to the Earth was fifty million miles, only every 3600 years. He believed the gods in Sumerian texts were super human beings and interpreted the events described in the texts as interpersonal relations, inventing epithets for the otherwise meaningless names such as E.A “Whose House Is Water”, EN.KI “Lord of Earth”, EN.LIL “Lord of the Command” and MAR.DUK “Son of the Pure Mound”, in some cases imagining conversations between them.

Stairway to Heaven, primarily Chapter IV with the same name, focuses on the journey of the deceased Egyptian Pharaohs’ souls ‘to the gods’. A few pages of text from this chapter and Figure 121 found in Chapter XII are quoted below.  These few pages present an exquisite description of the process by which Mars escaped from its one-hundred geostationary encounters with the Earth, each of which lasted 14.3 years. In spite of the great emphasis on Nibiru in his books, Sitchin does not specifically associate the Stairway to Heaven with this planet.

The pictograph of interest (figure above) is taken from the Papyrus of Queen Nejmet, part of The Book of the Dead. Sitchin identifies the scene as illustrating the final stage of the deceased Pharaoh’s journey the “Place of Ascending” on the “Red Eye of Horus”. He focuses on the “Divine Cordholders” at the top and bottom left, which he believes are “measuring” the Earth, leading to a long discussion of the duat as an imagined corridor for alien spaceships taking off and landing in Mesopotamia. He has no idea that the Duat referred to the Egyptian ‘raised land’ at the north pole of Mars (Horus) in the center of which a huge volcanic vent was located which the Egyptians imagined was the entrance to the Amenta (‘underworld), or that the “Red Eye of Horus’ was the solid iron core of this planet, the expulsion of which initiated the many escapes of the planet from Earth orbit.

Actually there were two ‘places of ascending’ in the deceased pharaoh’s trip ‘to the gods’. The first was the Pharaoh’s ascent from the Earth to the Duat, imagined by the Egyptians to be facilitated by a ‘rope ladder’ lowered from the planet. This was actually the unique spindly hardened lava column called Osiris, also  depicted as the Tet or Djed Pillar hieroglyph, which extended several thousand km down toward the Earth (illustrated in my post on Akhenaten). The deceased pharaoh’s second ascent was the launch of the solid iron core from the planet, imagined to be his ‘ship’ – the only event which could release of the planet from its geostationary orbit (Horus on the Horizon). Because the Duat was at the north pole of Mars, facing the Earth whereas the solid iron core exited the planet through the great rift on the equator of Mars , now called the Valles Marineris, the Egyptians logically reasoned that the Pharaoh’s soul had to travel a considerable distance through the Amenta ‘underworld’, the interior of Mars, answering a number of challenges from the ‘gods’ that existed there, in order to reach the solid iron core before it was ejected from the planet.

The Egyptians described Valles Marineris as the ‘double doors’, and they imagined the ‘Divine Cordholders’ adjusting the tension in two cables thought to launch the solid core through the doors (figure), just like engineers. The pharaoh finally reaches the ‘Eye of Ra’ or the ‘Eye of Horus’, both names applied to the solid iron core when it first protruded through the Valles Marineris like a single eye (the Greek Cyclops and the one-eyed Muslim deceiver, Ad-Dajjal) just before launch. In the figure above, the pharaoh is depicted mounted on the ‘eye’ (obviously no space suit), ready for launch. The launch is witnessed by a number of Amenta ‘gods’.

Before reaching the material of real interest in Chapter IV, Sitchin fills some twenty pages with different texts concerning the challenges and hardships which the Pharaoh encounters while traversing the ‘’underworld’. The reason there are so many slightly different versions of these is that  atotal one hundred generations witnessed releases of Mars, one every thirty years, and thus the imagined aspects were inscribed slightly differently by each. Not realizing this, Sitchin mixes them all together. He finally begins ‘quoting’ the informative, consistent text concerning the afterlife of King Pepi I, which provides amazingly detailed information on the release of Mars, which no one in the modern world understands. The funerary text describes the opening of the Valles Marineris as the double doors. (Sitchin’s text in bold):

The door to heaven is open!
The door of Earth is open!
The aperture of the celestial window is open!
The Stairway to heaven is open.
The steps of light are revealed …
The double Doors to Heaven are open …

The sky-god has strengthened the radiance for the king
that the king may lift himself to Heaven
like the Eye of Ra.
The king is in this Eye of Horus …

The Eye of Horus begins to change hues: first it is blue, then it is red.

Blue is the color of the pure solid iron core when it first emerges, then when it is exposed to the oxygen in the atmosphere of Mars it becomes red.

The Heaven speaks, the Earth quakes;
The Earth trembles; …(referring to Mars not our Earth)
The ground has come apart …

O this Pepi!
Thou hast departed!
Thou art a Glorious One,
mighty as a god, seated as Osiris …

He flies who flies; this king Pepi flies away from you, ye mortals. He is not of Earth, he is of Heaven .. The king is now on the Sky-Bearer, the upholder of the stars; from within the shadows of the walls of God, he crosses the skies.

The “walls of God” are the stone walls of the Valles Marineris, since priori-Mars was the god Horus. The scraping of the solid core against sharp rocks in the walls gouged a series of visible parallel lines across its surface called ‘the Mercurian Grid’ by planetary scientists who imagine them to be ‘thrust faults’. These features led to the Greek myth that Hermes ( the solid core) invented the lyre.

He encompasses the sky like Ra,
He traverses the sky like Thoth …
He traveleth over the regions of Horus,
He traveleth over the regions of Seth …
He has completely encircled twice the heavens,
He has revolved about the two lands

Sitchin interjects: The king is not simply skybourne, he is orbiting the Earth.

Actually these lines were describing the solid iron core orbiting the shell of Mars from which it has just been ejected. The region of Horus was the northern hemisphere, which faced the Earth during each encounter and the regions of Seth (Set) were the mountainous southern hemisphere which remained facing away from the Earth. Unbeknownst ot Egyptian scholars to this day, the term ‘the two lands’ always referred to the two dichotomus regions on priori-Mars.

…the king soars toward the eastern horizon, far, far away in the heavens.
This is a description of the solid core of Mars circling the Earth to the East away from Egypt from its geostationary position over The Himalayas.

Sitchin interjects: (A verse also states that the king “crosses the sky like Sunt, which crosses the sky nine times in one night” but the meaning of Sunt is undeciphered).

This refers to the great speed of  the solid core, which dropped into an eccentric orbit, rapidly circling the Earth, and zooming over the Sahara at low altitude. Meanwhile, the outer shell drifted slowly to the west toward Egypt and drifted away from the Earth. The solid core was the Egyptian deity Hathor, who zoomed so low that its heat killed many men in the desert. It was also the Roman deity Mercury, a messenger of the gods who is renowned for his great speed.

His destination is the Aten, the Winged Disk, which is also called the Imperishable Star.

Here the Egyptians have exercised some ‘poetic license’, now referring to the outer shell of priori-Mars, from which the solid core has just been ejected, as the Aten, a name given to Mars during the Amarna period by Pharaoh Akhenaten (see a previous post). Mars was also called Ra, Horus, the Firmament, Heaven and The Imperishable Star.

Ra of the Aten
Thy son has come to thee;
Pepi comes to thee;
Let him ascend to thee;
Enfold him in thy embrace.

The king – “on his way to Heaven, on the wind” advances in Heaven, he cleaves its firmament,”

The celestial journey is to last eight days: “When the hour of the morrow comes, the hour of the eighth day, the king will be summoned by Ra… Ra himself shall await the king on the Imperishable Star. … He who knows the place comes, say the gods” There at the gates of the Double Palace, Ra is indeed awaiting the king . “Ra has taken the king to himself, to Heaven, on the Eastern side of Heaven … the king is on that star which radiates in Heaven.” In the company of “Horus of the Duat” described as “the great green divine falcon.”

Thus the core, which just left Mars, zoomed around the Earth to the East and caught up with the outer shell of the planet eight days later as the two drifted away from the Earth, the enormous gap out of which it exited was still wide open i.e. the ‘firmament cleaved’. The reference to Horus as the great green divine falcon emphasizes that Mars was a living planet at the beginning of the Cyclic Catastrophism and only gradually became decimated over three thousand years as it lost its water, soil, atmosphere and vegetable life (as manna) to the Earth.

Upon the hundredth encounter with the Earth, the solid core and the outer shell of Mars failed to recombine and the solid core interacted with proto-Venus for several hundred years until it, Mercury, and Venus entered their current orbits.  At the same time, the outer shell collapsed in on itself and drifted out to become the ‘planet’ Mars.  Thus the very scheme used to interrupt Mars’ orbits of the Earth provided the means for the disposal of the debris once its purpose, the rejuvenation of the earth, was completed.

(1 Cor 2: 6-7) We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or the rules of this age [the standard model] who are coming to nought. No, we speak of God’s secret wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began.

  2. Fred,
    Thanks for your interest and comment. You make a good point.
    I’m positive that the lava column was Osiris because the Tet or Djed Pillar was often depicted holding the scepter and flail that were his ‘signature’. The event you allude to was the one in which a stream of fourteen huge bodies were ejected into space from the Osiris vent and struck the Moon (Isis) creating the maria. These were considered monuments which she placed to mark each body part. It may be that since the lava column reformed and was still on priori-Mars, i.e. not on the Moon, that, as you imply, it was the one part (appropriately shaped) which she could not find, i.e. was not on the Moon. I believe it was just a one-time variation in the story and that Osiris was the lava column for thousands of years.
    To me, the more troubling aspect of that myth (Osiris and Isis) is that Osiris died and was replaced by Horus, his son, which had long been the priori-Mars (the planet), or at least its near side. This might imply that the lava column could no longer shoot high into the air after those enormous bodies were ejected, but I don’t think so. I believe that the event was so unique, in that the monuments were still visible on the Moon, that when the fountain continued to extend toward the Earth, they decided it was a new deity Osiris’ son.
    It is beyond belief how astrophysicists have created the idea of the Late Heavy Bombardment, in which the entire solar system was pummeled for many millions of years, actually estimating the ages of all planetary surfaces based on crater densities, when all the maria are on the same side of the Moon.
    I read somewhere that in Vedic or Hindu myth Brahma created ‘fourteen nations’, obviously referring to the same event, but I have not been able to find it. If you run across this, please let me know.

  3. This pillar was also the deity Osiris in other Egyptian texts.

    Wouldn’t it be more logical to assume that this pillar was originally the penis/phallus of Osiris? After Osiris was torn to pieces, Isis tried to reassemble his body. She succeeded but the penis was missing. Could it be that this is a retelling of the collapsed pillar of solidified lava?

  4. Thanks for following my posts and for your positive comments.
    One question, which I have addressed previously, is whether the Pharaohs’ souls were buried when they died, and were imagined going ‘to the gods’ at the next separation, or perhaps accepted a ceremonial death when they knew a separation was soon to occur. Egyptologists have noted a ceremony, the ‘sed-festival’, which they believe was ‘celebrated’ only after the pharaoh had ruled for thirty years, but this interpretation is questionable.

  5. I always thought that Stichin was a bit wonky, and sometimes he could not understand what he was promoting. Your Therory is the only one that explains all the ancient writing on this matter without resorting to unknowns..
