Picture the setting. The world is enshrouded in darkness. The dark purple glow of god described by the Maya and Hopi and others is seen above in the Northern Sky surrounded by what seems to be swirling clouds or fog. Also known as the Waters of Chaos or the Tao. A great cataclysm had occurred and food was scarce and a frigid cold had enveloped the land. A great civilization had come to an end and survival was a struggle for the ones who remained.
Thunderous rumblings were heard coming from this god in his celestial sea. It was Saturn discharging and pushing out it’s circumstellar disk creating a void or expanse in the heavenly waters. This Word of God or radiant speech reverberated throughout the heavens and was the thundering of the American Indian god known as the Great Chief or Great Spirit who lived alone in the whirlpool in the sky. As did Vishnu the luminous giant who was recumbent in his infinite ocean and Amen-Ra the god of the great celestial waters. Same god different name.
The waters of the cosmic ocean rushed around and stirred and thundered. In reality it was a heavenly nebulous cloud charged in a plasma state and Saturn was experiencing an electrical disturbance or charge differential as it plunged into the domain of the new sun.
The first chapter of Genesis tells of a state of darkness while God’s wind moved upon ‘the face of the deep’ also called the Abyss. The Hebrew word Tehom translated as deep means a surging mass of water. That these waters were celestial is confirmed by the fact that there were waters above and below the firmament which was the expanse in heaven also referred to as the arched vault of the sky.
The Bambara of west Africa also believe in the separating or voiding of the waters. They say that during creation words spiraled upwards in succession from the Voice in the Void. Likewise the Memphis, Egypt god Ptah actualized creation by an act of speech. In Assyro-Babylonian thought the Originator is Mummu which means formation by an utterance or word. The Dead Sea Scrolls say Yahweh accomplished creation with a word from his mouth and Thoth carried out creation by the sound of his voice. Amen-Ra is said to evolved himself by words of power called Khu which also means brilliant or glorious light. Similarly the Hindu Prajapati fulfilled creation with his divine commands or creative words which turned into lights whose radiant splendors flow like sounds.
These thunderous eruptions were not only loud and emitted light they also expelled debris which was known as ‘divine matter’. This material that came forth from the primeval god Amen-Ra is what he hid himself in.
In the same accord Elohim in Genesis achieved creation with his instructive words ‘Let there be light’. The words that Elohim spoke is what John the Evangelist referred to when he wrote in Greek – In the beginning was Logos – the Word – and the Word was with God and the Word was God. In Sumerian thought this ‘Word’ was in possession of the creator and means words of wrath. The Maori of New Zealand relate that creation took place at the behest of Io’s words in a noisy and tumultuous event. Hearts were pervaded with fear and terror when I was born in the Abyss says the Egyptian creator god Osiris. That this sound was a thunder like explosion is shown in various Native American myths where thunder is associated with creation. The Thunder god is portrayed as a Thunderbird in many cultures such as the Caribs in the West Indies with their god Sawaku. This god star was also depicted as a Heavenly Bull such as Horus. Others such as the Maidu of California the creator is translatable as a Great Man who was synonymous with thunder. He had upraised arms as the thunderbird had upraised wings. The Aztecs say of their god ‘Like a man I showed myself when I was born. This sun was certainly not the sun we have now.’
Elohim fashioned his creation out of the original chaos just as Saturn organized his cosmos. The words translated as formless and void in Genesis also means chaos. Cosmos meant order. Order out of chaos. A void was created between Saturn and it’s atmospheric envelope. It eventually exploded in nova like fashion that was witnessed by our ancestors because of it’s close proximity.
This outburst heralded in a new age. The former age ended when Saturn entered the sun’s heliosphere causing a tremendous discharge. This eruption from Saturn caused the circuit overload of the pyramid complex. An extended darkened period followed.
But the Great God Saturn came to life again as it adjusted to it’s new environment. It shown as bright as a thousand suns with terrifying splendor dispelling the darkness. This God Man discharged divine matter emanating fire and smoke in a poleward direction. The outflow took the form of a fiery snake or dragon that spiraled with radiant brilliant light. It is pictured by the Chinese as a dragon coiled around a central orb. This is the identification of the biblical Leviathan where Isiah describes it as the Dragon in the Sea. Apep is the Egyptian dragon that assaulted Amen-Ra the god of the celestial waters.
The outflow from Saturn taking the form of a serpent is the Serpent of Creation. It was also seen as a spiral. The Spiral of Creation. Both themes are embedded in the traditions of advanced nations as well as the most primitive tribes around the world.
It was also portrayed as the sun’s chariot. Usually the chariot is depicted being pulled by horses such as was formerly the case at the gates of Solomon’s temple in Jerusalem. Frequently also the chariot is shown being pulled by snakes. The Latin god Saturn in his chariot is pulled by dragons.
These voices in the void culminated in a huge outburst which dispelled the Tahitian ‘Night of Rumia’. The Tahitians say when light came into the world there was exuberance and shouting and rejoicing and everyone hugged each other. The Act of Creation had commenced.
