The Genesis of "The Beginning"


p. 53 "the seven divisions of Alban {cognate with, and possibly named after, (south of Roma) Lacus Albanus and (east of that lake) Mons Albanus -- both in Latium}, which a Pictish legend, preserved by the Irish Nennius, assigned to the seven children of Cruithne." ["Cruithne, son of Cing {Latin \cingulum\ 'girdle'; also, the name of a town in Picenum}, son of Luctai {Latin \luctatio\ 'a wrestling'}, son of Partalan {Portolan mappery -- named for British god Maponus (ECM&F, q.v.) "a naked lad holding a lyre", later name \Mabon\ the valley of river Annan in southwest Scotland ("MPYG2") -- introduced in the Mediterranean basin during the Renaissance}, son of Agnoin, son of Buain, son of Mais, son of Fathecht, son of Iafeth, son of Noe. He was the father of the Cruichneach, and reigned a hundred years. These are the seven sons of Cruithne--viz. Fib, Fidach, Fodla, Fortrend, warlike, Cait, Ce, Cirig--and they divided the land into seven divisions, as Columcille says:--

Seven children of Cruithne
Divided Alban into seven divisions:
Cait, Ce, Cirig, a warlike clan,
Fib, Fidach, Fotla, Fortrenn.

{This male Cruithne of Erse lore of Albania in Prettania/Britannia is distinct from the female Cruithne of Iwernan/Hibernian lore. Cruithne (DCeM, q.v.) is "daughter of the master smith Lo`cha`n of Cuillean." Upon taking Cruithne as his concubine, Fionn is given, by Lo`cha`n, two lances wherewith he slayeth (ECI, p. 132) the monstrous sow Beo : \Beo\ is evidently cognate with \Phai[w]a\, the name of the sow (descended from Ekhidne-and-Tuphon) slain by Theseus at Krommuon (GM @96.e). Phai[w]a is apparently identical with Phai[w]oi (one of the Huades, according Aratos : GM @27.2); for, the Huades are (GM @41.6) "piglets." The crone-namesake who bred this sow might be the same as (through mutation of \w\ to \m\) Bhima (PE, s.v. "Bhimarathi") at the city Pan.d.hara [\pams\ 'vitiating' + 'dhara 'support']-pura (comparable with Paudhanya, the city founded by As`maka?). DEMNE (the original name of Fionn), in inserting (ECI, p. 133) his thumb into his mouth (cf. TL-MRJ boy-god NFR-TM, usually depicted with his finger in in mouth), must, however, match forefinger-god (GM @53.2) DAMNA-meneus (\damnamene\ 'constraint'), whose daktuloi-comrades AKMon ('anvil' : GM, vol. 2, p. 377a) and KELMis ('smelting' : GM, vol. 2, p. 385b) must be, respectively, AS`Maka ('little cyindrical stone used for crushing') and As`maka's mother's husband (PE, s.v. "As`maka") KALMas.a-pada ('blotched foot' : cf. the blotch-markings produced in forging "Dammes`eq steel"). Furthermore, it would appear that DAMaNAka is aequivalent to DEMNE; for, much as Demne pulled a "brooch" (ECI, p. 135) off the garment which was being worn by a goddess entring via a mound into the Netherworld : cf. how Sumerian goddess In-anna was deprived of her insignia by gate-guards at the entrance into the Netherworld), so Damanaka mentioned the wearing of "bangles" ("Mitra-bheda Tantra" -- PE, s.v. "Pan~catantra B.1)", p. 555a).

Demne's father Cumhall is likened (LI, s.v. "Fionn mac Cumhaill", p. 239a) to UMhaLL = Arjuna, in whose birth-celebration participated apsaras UM-Loca (PE, q.v.); if so, then Cumhall himself may be aequivalent to the other Arjuna, namely Karta-virya, who, by his being warned by the "mysterious voice" (PE, s.v. "Kartaviryarjuna 4)") of Vayu the invisible wind-god, may indicate that his father Kr.ta-virya is none other than he who "had come in the form of a whirl-wind" (PE, s.v. "Tr.n.avarta", p. 797), namely TR.N.a-aVARta [etymologically, "turning-so-as-to-avert"] = (with alteration of \v\ to \m\) TRE`ANMHO`R, the father of (LI, s.v. "Fionn mac Cumhaill", p. 239a) Cumhall. Tre`anmho`r's father SUALt = SVALin ('swelter', viz., dew condensed on cold metal) as mentioned in the Edda. Sualt's father's name EALTAN likely = \ALtiTONans\ 'on-high thundering' : epithet (in Ennius : Ann. 2:6) of Juppiter and (in Lucretius 5.745) of Volturnus (god of river Vulturnus in Campania; possibly identified as constellation Vultur volans). Ealtan's father BAOIScne likely = \BHAVIS.ya\, which (besides being the name of a puran.a describing the mythology of Christianity and of >islam) could refer to Yad-BHAVIS.ya, the name of a mythic fish in the "Mitra-bheda Tantra" of the Pan~ca-tantra (PE, s.v. "Pan~catantra B.1)", pp. 556b-557a).

"in folklore accounts of Fionn's birth, ... he ... emerged holding an eel in his hands" (LI, s.v. "Fionn mac Cumhaill", p. 242a) : this being evidently intended to parallel the Cymry myth of Taliesin's being found as an infant in an eel-weir (which could likewise be the meaning of the Old-English 'eel'-rune). Demne's mother Muirne was (LI, s.v. "Fionn mac Cumhaill", p. 241b) "protected by Cumhall's sister Bodhmhall, who lived with her husband Fiacal Fi` {*\WIKaLa Wi`\ = Vis`ravas (*\WIS`LaWas\)} at ... a peak" {Vis`ravas's son Kubera resideth (PE, s.v. "Kubera 5)", p. 435a) "on the top of the Mountain ... and that peak is Trikut.i".}. MUIRenn = MURa's slayeress (PE, s.v. "Mura II.", p. 512a) goddess Eka-das`i ('eleventh'), her name alluding to the rejuvenating eleven apples "of old-age medicine" (mentioned in the Edda); for, Muirenn's father Tadg was owner of the Hill of Almu (\alma\ meaning 'apple' in the capital-city name \Alma Ata\). Tadg's father NUADAT = perhaps Vaidik muni NODHAS (PE, q.v.); possibly likewise T-beam-marked vegetarian Qayin in the land of NOWD. When from S`idh ar FEIMHEAN (i.e., siddhi ['subterrean residence'] of VAMANa the midget-god) came CU`LDubh to snatch a pig from Demne (LI, s.v. "Fionn mac Cumhaill", p. 240b), this event is to confirm the association of Kaula goddess Vajra-varahi ('thunderbolt-sow') with Kaula goddess Kuru-kulla [*\-KULDa\]. "Perhaps ... a story, current in the nin[e]th century ..., which described an adventure of Fionn in Dearc Fhearna" (LI, s.v. "Fionn mac Cumhaill", p. 241a) is intended to disclose through this name, meaning 'cavern alder', via the fact that "wood of the Alder was used to make shields" (KFT"DFh"), that there is connection with the "shield in front of the sun" that Svalin is described as; as well as, via the fact that "the wood of the alder has been used in the making of ... locks on canals" (KFT"DFh"), on account of this alder-wood of the sun's supernatural shield, the various books (e.g., Book of What-Is-in-the-Netherworld) painted within the royal tombs in TL-MRJ, describe the barque transporting the sun through the canal of the Netherworld as needing to wait at each hourly lock of that canal for the lock to opened in front of that barque and closed behind it.

[quoted from J. W. Powell, NATURE, Jan 29 1880. Section "B" of the A.A.A.S., at Saratoga] "The philosopher of the Oraibi tells us that when the people ascended by means of the magical tree which constituted the ladder from the lower world to this, they found the firmament -- the ceiling of this world -- low upon the earth, the floor of this world. Machito, one of their gods, raised the firmament on his shoulders to where it is now seen."

pp. 66-7 mythical history of Aiguptos, according to Eusebios

p. 66

"The first series of princes was that of the Auritae, says Eusebios, the second was that of the Mestraeans, the third of the Egyptians."

[quoted from Synkellos : "Khronikon, and from Eusebios : Khronikon; both in C:AF] "The reign of the gods according to the Old Chronicle [begins with] Hephaestus [who] is assigned no time ... .

Helius the sun of Hephaestus reign three myriads of years.

Then Cronus and the other twelve divinities reigned 3,981 years.

Next in order are the demigods, in number eight, who reigned 217 years.

After these are enumerated 15 generations of the Cynic circle, which extend to 443 years;

in all, 30 dynasties, and

36,525 years."

{Deployment of this number could hardly antedate, in Aiguptos, the Hellenistic epoch (of the Lagidai), inasmuch as it was then that a quarter-day (leap-year every 4 years) was first included in reckoning of the annual kalendar.}

"As the Old Chronicle records, their first princes were of the Auritae, which are the Ruti of monumental Egypt, the typical name of the race of men par excellence."

p. 67

"The Mestraeans ... are the people of

the gorge, the place of outlet ... .

Syncellus describes the Egyptian priest-historian Manetho as having declared that certain of these stele stll existing in the Syriadic land were his authorities. ...

These columns, or stele, in the Syriadic land ... the first century Jewish historian, Josephus ... ascribes ... to Seth,

{"The Jewish historian Joseph recounts a story of how the descendants of Seth preserved the wisdom of Adam, Eve, and Seth by inscribing it on two steles ... ." (GB, p. 201)}

and says that they were erected to record the peculiar sort of wisdom which concerns the heavenly bodies ... ."

{As for the the content of the Gnostic edition of these stelai, "The Three Steles praise each member of the divine family in turn : the invisible father ...; his counterpart, Barbelo; and the self-conceived child." (GB, p. 201)}

GB = Willis Barnstone & Marvin Meyer (edd.) : The Gnostic Bible. Shambhala : Boston & London, 2003.

p. 69 instance of author's rather characteristic odd choice of foreign vocabulary

"Puth in Hebrew denotes the opening, the place of birth." {If it may ever have this meaning in current Hebrew slang, it would be borrowed from Spanish \puta\ 'prostitute'.}

{The word for 'opened' is (Strong's 6358) \pat.uwr\, not "Puth", which could only intend (Strong's 6336) \Puwtiy\, pertaining to \puwt\ 'hinge', the propre domain of a cardinal.}

p. 69 author's misidentification of (Strong's 5434) Sba> with Zab {-- probably he was thinking of ZAnziBar isle off Tanganyika!}

"Zaba, the first-born son of Cush, ... is mentioned in the Book of Isaiah [23:42]". {There, it is actually spelled \Sawba>iym\, however.}

{This name is always spelled with initial \s\, never with initial \z\; there are two rivers named "Zab" in As^s^ur (Assyria), however.}

p. 72 a British-dialect word

"interchangeable as in the English aft and fud for the hinder-part."

{\Fud\ 'scut or tail of the hare, cony, etc.' is derived from Cymry \ffwtog\ 'scut, short tail'. Strong's 2180 \ZANAB\ 'tail' would be reminiscent of \ZANziBar\.}



The Myths of Atlantis, H.nowk, and the Apokalupsis


p. 78 "Iu ... as the son of the god Ptah{.}, in the city of Memphis."

p. 86 "As one of his sons would later say of the Atlantis tales : "They are the most fantastic, the most bizarre, the most impossible information in the Edgar Cayce files.""

p. 90 "The Egyptian priest -- his name was Psonchis -- had told Solon that ... the Greeks themselves had preserved the tradition "that once upon a time Phae{:}thon, the son of Helio[s], burned up all that was upon the earth ... ."

[quoted from the Timaios :] Now, this ... really signifies ... a great conflagration of things upon the earth recurring at long intervals of time ... . {This doctrine of periodic worldwide destructions is Stoic.} And from this calamity the Nile, who is our never-failing savior, saves and delivers us."

p. 95 "The aged sun-god says to Seb or Geb (time) {actually, god of digging-in-the-ground : Strong's 1356 \geb\ 'ditch, pit'; Strong's 1461 \guwb\ 'to dig'}, "I cannot preserve myself because of my old age; I send ... to thy son Osiris." He establishes [D.H.WTJ] ... . "Thou art my abode; the god of my abode; ... and there arose the ibis," which is the stork, or Chasidah, in Hebrew."



The Male Grabbed "The Glory"


p. 96 genetic inheritance from one's mother

"Irenaeus (c. 130-c. 200) ... writes [liber 2, 19:7] : "They declare those souls which have receive seed from the mother to be superior to all the rest," meaning that they traced ... the physical ... ."

{This is a reference to persons who resemble their mother more closely than their father; to say that such persons are "superior" would mean 'more kindly' (the stork [supra, p. 95] being noted for its kindly attitude).}

pp. 97-8 Christianity as a survival of cannibalism

p. 97

"The president of the Folk Lore Society of London is quoted in Faiths of Man, A Cyclopaedia of

p. 98

Religions, as saying that "the Christian rite ["of the Eucharist"] is a distinct survival of the barbarian ... eating of a god, so as to become a partaker in his divine nature."

pp. 99-100 all humans are mutually consanguine

p. 99

"Flavius Josephus says that Adam was so named because he was formed out of the red earth, the true Virgin earth being of that color. ... The rabbis identify Adam as the "Blood of the World," meaning ...

p. 100

that of one blood substance all men are made ... ."

p. 102 "In Strabo's account of the Exodus, we are told that Moses, the teacher, was opposed to images of the deities ... ."

p. 104, fn. * ""the Jews venerated the pig, a rumor echoed by Plutarch; ... this animal ... had taught them 'sowing and plowing.'" -- Joseph Me'le`ze Modrezejewski, The Jews of Egypt -- From Rameses II to Emperor Hadrian, Princeton University Press ..., 1999." {Actually, swine do somewhat teach harrowing, when those swine succeed in locating, in the praesence of humans, the underground abode of the truffle, which those humans proceed to excavate thence.}

pp. 104-5 instance of the author's deliberate habit of tendaciously distorting meaning of names

p. 104

"contained in Genesis, ... of any actual river "Phison," ... the name "being interpreted," ... means the change in the month {the transition between the final day of one month and the initial day of the succeeding month, an event requiring a rite-of-transition} ... . Phison in Hebrew denotes the flowing, and there is only one

{This river-name, Strong's 6376 \Piys^own\ 'dispersive', is naturally derived from Strong's 6335 \puws^\ 'spread selves, be scattered', in relation to (B-Re>s^iyt 2:11) the country-name, Strong's 2341 \H.wiylah\, from Strong's 2342 \h.uwl\ or \h.iyl\ 'be in pain'. The word for 'flow freely, gush' is Strong's 2100 \zuwb\ (whence the \Zab\ river-names in As^s^ur), slightly similar to Strong's 2091 \zahab\ 'gold' (mentioned in B-Re>s^iyt 23:11).}

p. 105

form of flowing or monthly change that can be linked with the "correction of manners" ... ."

{As for B-Re>s^iyt 23:11, the word for 'bdellium', Strong's 916 \bdolah.\, is, litterally, \b-\ 'in' + Strong's 1804 \dalah.\ 'trouble' (apparently the trouble which resulted in being in pain); while the word for 'onyx', Strong's 7718 \s^oham\ (which ought to indicate the source of that trouble) is employed as a clan-name, Strong's 7719 \S^oham\, the sole clan of the tribe of Dan (whose s^apat. 'judge' is S^ims^own, who hid himself from trouble in the cleft of the 'Rock' : "Rock of Ages, cleft for me, let me hide myself in Thee", indicating, mayhap, the cliff-cleft hiding-place for the vase containing S^ethian manuscripts transferred thither incognito from the monastery at Khenoboskion), the clan-name otherwise provided as Strong's 2366 \H.uws^iym\ 'hasters' : for, "It hasteth greatly, even voice of the day of YHWH" (S.panyah 1:14). Seper Nabiy> S.panyah 1:1 : "This is the the word of YHWH which came unto S.panyah the son of Kuws^iy", i.e., denizen of the country Kuws^ mentioned in B-Re>s^iyt 2:13 (and mistranslated "Aithiopia" in the Septuagint), apparently slightly distinguised from the country Kuws^an (apparently the abode of the Kossaioi, "Kassites", the province modernly known as H^uz-istan, with its capital at aH^waz.). The word \s^oham\ = \sahim\ 'of earnest mien' (DMWA, p. 511a). An earnest intent is needed in order to accomplish miraculous healing, as suggested in the saying (B-Re>s^iyt 2:13 ), "the gold of that land is good"; for, \t.ob\ = etymologically, (DMWA, p. 643b) \t.ibb\ 'medicine'.}

p. 105 The author quoteth Mis^ley 23:31 concerning "the wine" (sacerdotal eucharist, signifying 'blood'), which a figurative expression in reference to the women of 23:27 "a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit" : here, this is intended for "Let the blood enter the trench" (GM @170.l) in order that it be quaffed-of by the blood-sucking (viz., tropical-American) species (the mythical variety of these being described in the Popol Vuh) of nocturnally-flying bats (mentioned here, in the Odusseia/ Od-UTTeia : the book named for the Hellenic aequivalent to UTTanka) residing in the ghostly Kimmerian world. Furthermore, the author quoteth Mis^ley 23:32 concerning "the serpent ... the adder" : this is dragon-king Taks.aka, who "snatched the earrings" (Naradiya Puran.a -- PE, s.v. "Uttanka A.2)", p. 815b) from Uttanka "and disappeared into a cave." (This is aequivalent to the renowned "Cave of the Nymphs", where these goddess weave divine garments, even as do Taks.aka's "two women, who had been weaving clothes ... on one machine".) When "For 35 days Uttanka dug the molehill" (MBh, "As`vamedha Parvan" 53-58 -- PE, s.v. "Uttanka B.2)", p. 816b), this is to explicate the origin of the Javanese "wetonan cycle" of "35 days" (W:"Javanese Calendar").
