Ayahuasca and Iboga – Messengers of Truth from Mother Earth
By Dylan Charles
“The history of Western culture in the last two thousand years could be seen as the “Empire of the Mind conquering the exterior world and extinguishing
the interior one, with the result that we have atrophied our spiritual connection.” –Rak Razam
The world is deeply out of balance in these pre-apocalyptic times, and a serious correction, long overdue, is underway. The benevolent forces
of the earth are reaching out into our culture and touching the consciousness of many people, invoking within them the necessity and the courage to transform and evolve beyond the self-destructive narratives that govern human life today.
Situation Normal: All Fracked Up
When we look up into the sky we see a once blue oblivion painted in chemtrails, and when we look down into the soil we see poisons and genetically modified seed infecting
the purity of nature. Radiation spills like blood from industrial accidents and the earth is being stripped
bare by unfettered resource extraction. Our minds are held captive by programming that keeps us locked into
materialistic and competitive paradigms, the ego is glorified as if it were God, and too many of us are unable to see beyond immediate personal desires. The mindlessness of it all is maddening.
we face run deep, yet the consciousness of human kind seems firmly centered at base level. For many there seems to be little promise that a significant enough transformation can occur in time to avoid ecocide, which is suicide, because along with the industrial
revolution we’ve reconfigured our knowledge base to exclude sustainable co-existence with the natural world.
So, then, what is available to us, as creatures of this earth, to remedy these crises? What catalysts, if any, are strong enough to cause the needed infectious tidal wave of personal and communal transformation? One strong
enough to cause people to re-think their patterned lives and to restructure them? What in our world can help us to break through the fear of letting go of what we have now, in order to risk discovering what else may be possible?
are we to fully understand the gravity of our mistake of viewing the earth as something separate from ourselves, as a consumable resource that can be totally exhausted for our comfort and our entertainment?
Enter: Ancient Wisdom
Ayahuasca and Iboga… kindred medicine spirits that are pushing themselves into the collective consciousness of the modern world. Their ancient secrets have been guarded for thousands of years by the indigenous tribes that have since time
immemorial structured their cultures and cosmologies around the wisdom gleaned from communing with these plant teachers. Yet for some important reason there is widespread and growing interest in these sacraments as a means to alleviate the cultural malaises
that so many in the ‘advanced’ world suffer from.
Used in shamanic and bona fide religious practices, Ayahuasca, native to South America, is a hallucinogenic brew concocted of the ‘vine of the souls,’ banisteriopsis caapi, and other DMT containing plants such as chacruna, or psychotria viridis. Iboga,
native to the rainforest of Gabon, Africa, is an entheogenic root bark of the tree, tabernanthe iboga and an ancient sacrament of the Bwiti, a spiritual discipline whose African members number in the millions.
Both of these plant
medicines are taken ceremonially as medicinal rites to facilitate physical and psychological healing, to teach virtuous living, to develop spirituality, to strengthen family and communal ties, and to deepen one’s connection to the natural world. They
are the center pieces of shamanic traditions that have for ages been full-spectrum healing arts that address the total human needs of individuals and communities alike, while addressing imbalances between humans and nature. They bring a human-being into direct
contact with the unseen spirit realms of the earth and the cosmos, allowing one to de-intellectualize the mystical nature
of life and consciousness.
Strangely enough, both of these shamanic medicines
are swiftly working their way into the consciousness of the modern, ‘civilized’ world at a time when the planet is under severe ecological assault and the individual is bombarded with fear, polluted with toxic foods and a toxic environment, and
suffering from dreadful mental and emotional health. We have largely lost our connection to the divine, to the source of life and consciousness and to the very earth that sustains us. Whereas ancient cultures communicated directly with nature to gain the necessary
wisdom to live by, we have convinced ourselves that nature is here for our exploitation.
What Language Does Mother Earth Speak?
How does our planet, which gives life to all earthly creatures,
tell us when we’ve gone too far, when we’ve cut down too many forests or over-polluted the soil and sea? In what ways does she make appeals to the human race for compassionate reciprocity for breathing life into the stardust that animates us?
We know she is capable of doom and destruction, and that when she speaks up the earth shakes and trembles and entire cities fall. When she cries out her tears create centennial floods and blizzards that shock, surprise and humble us. When she
moans in pain of being tortured, her anguish is felt in droughts, famine and pestilence, and thousands of her children die and fade to dust. When she smiles, we reap abundance in harvest and we thrive in good health of mind and spirit.
She speaks to us in these familiar tongues, using the language of blessing and destruction, yet our human minds have gone so far down the road of disconnection that we know longer hear her or heed her voice. We’ve advanced so far in the direction
of materialism that we no longer acknowledge her communication as an intelligence, and we’ve grown so
arrogant and pompous in our endeavors that we discredit her say, instead always moving to subjugate her interests or insulate ourselves from her wrath. Foolishness of the highest order.
Mother earth, the shining blue pearl of life in a vast sea of dark, uninhabitable space is at once held captive by the human race, and simultaneously the source
of all life for human beings. The propagation of truly organic wisdom via these medicines into the human rat-race is her conscious effort to redress the wholesale damage being done to the planet, whose communication is limited to the forces of nature and the
ability to inspire.
The timing of the appearance of these plant medicines in Western culture is of vast significance because it reveals a direct attempt by our sentient planet to communicate directly with the human race in order
to impress upon us her suffering and her commitment to love us through it all.
Touching Consciousness, Transforming Lives
Transformation is the key to navigating these insane times, and
these medicines strike at the root of globaltransformation, the individual. It takes tremendous courage to ‘step into the
fire’ with these medicines, but for those who do, it feels distinctly like a calling or destiny, and very little like a desire or ambition.
Initiates are called to muster absolute courage and humility, and are returned renewed and cleansed with heightened energy and abundant inspiration. Often gaining clear signals about choosing and navigating
life’s paths, initiates receive visionary insight into the value of life and the connection to the natural world.
The message is similar for many: Wake up, let go of the past, balance the ego, refine yourself, refine your
personal energy, and move your life in the direction of service, with gratitude for each breath that you take.
Fear is understood and overcome, and the infinite nature of human consciousness is revealed. Emotional healing happens instantly, and self-judgements and criticisms are re-apportioned into task lists for personal development. Impulsivity and addiction are understood as
destructive forces that require domestication, and the impetus to do so is received abundantly. One reassess their connection to nature and sees, senses and directly feels the sentience in all things, thereby tempering their sense of seniority in the cosmic
web of life. A new life path unfolds, deep, enduring questions are answered, and forgiveness is granted. A life purpose lost is re-discovered and the seeker becomes new, refreshed, and reborn into a new perspective that lasts a lifetime.
These medicines heal the cultural malaises of apathy and distractedness by re-introducing
mystery and magic into life, and by liberating one’s consciousness from the confining prisons of the war on consciousness.
They completely destroy the matrix of cultural programming, clearing space within the psyche for something
new and positive to emerge.
Conclusion – Countering Cultural Propaganda
It is no accident that these medicines are forcing their way into popular culture at this time. These plant
teachers are one of nature’s greatest tools for communicating with human beings, and their message is seeding greater consciousness among us as a defense mechanism for the sentient being we call Earth.
Iboga is the tree
of knowledge. Ayahuasca is the vine of souls. Together they comprise an entirely complete, organic language and are reaching out into the world seeking soldiers of truth to translate and seed the message of the Earth, who is unmistakably our Mother. They are
calling us, speaking directly to us in spiritual form, asking for our involvement in this life or death struggle to return to equity, respect and balance to our relationship with the natural world.
They are messengers of truth from our mother the earth. Are you listening?

Inuittene advarer; Jorden har flyttet på seg
Inuittene er urfolk som lever i de arktiske regionene
av Grønland og Canada, og de har gjennom hele sin historie vært avhengig av å kunne forutsi været. Nå forsøker de å advare NASA og hele verden om at global oppvarming ikke er årsaken til det vi ser av ekstremvær
og økt jordskjelv- og vulkanaktivitet;
Jorden har flyttet på seg, sier de. De er sikre på at solen ikke stiger der den gjorde før, dagslyset varer lenger, solen stiger høyere og det blir fortere varmt. De er
overbevist om at jorden har flyttet på seg og «tiltet» mot nord.
"Their Sky Has Changed!" Inuit elders sharing
information with NASA regarding Earth's "WOBBLE"
We are all obsessed with the weather here in the West and rightly so with the unusual weather
we have had to endure recently, extreme has become the new norm but what about our brothers and sisters living on the Canadian Arctic circle?
Inuit knowledge and climate change was discussed by delegates at the recent global warming summit in Copenhagen
and what the Eskimo elders are saying have NASA, scientists and experts alike worried....Global warming might not be the whole story!
It seems the Inuit elders are also witnessing strange and unfathomable weather up there in the North.
elders talk about how their world has changed, how it was then and how it is now.
It is a worrying picture, a picture of melting glaciers and thinning or disappearing sea ice.
Seals with burns on their coats and covered with sores and a thinner hide,
the Seal skin has deteriorated and while scientists maintain man made pollution is contributing to climate change the elders are convinced something much much bigger is going on!
Astonishingly what the elders are saying is global warming is not the whole
The elders maintain the Sun doesn't rise were it used too, they have longer day light to hunt and the Sun is higher than it used to be and warms up quicker than before.
The elders who were interviewed across the north all said the
same thing, their sky has changed.
The stars the Sun and the Moon have all changed affecting the temperature, even affecting the way the wind blows, it is becoming increasingly hard to predict the weather, something that is a must on the Arctic.
The elders all agree, they believe the Earth has shifted, wobbled or tilted to the North.
Zacharius Kunuk has literally been e-mailing NASA with information from the elders regarding changes in the sky and the position of the Earth on its axis....
The elders are trying to reach out to warn the world of the effects of environmental change.
Exploring centuries of Inuit knowledge, allowing the viewer to learn about climate change first-hand from Arctic residents themselves, the film
portrays Inuit as experts regarding their land and wildlife and makes it clear that climate change is a human rights issue affecting this ingenious Indigenous culture. Hear stories about Arctic melting and how Inuit believe that human and animal intelligence
are key to adaptability and survival in a warming world.

Ten amazing inventions from ancient times
Ten amazing inventions from ancient times
Dating back thousands of years are numerous examples of ancient technology that leave us awe-struck at the knowledge and wisdom held by people of our past. They were the result of incredible advances in engineering and innovation as new, powerful
civilizations emerged and came to dominate the ancient world. These advances stimulated societies to adopt new ways of living and governance, as well as new ways of understanding their world. However, many ancient inventions were forgotten, lost to the
pages of history, only to be re-invented millennia later. Here we feature ten of the best examples of ancient technology and inventions that demonstrate the ingenuity of our ancient ancestors.
ancient invention of the steam engine by the Hero of Alexandria
Heron Alexandrinus, otherwise known as the Hero of Alexandria, was a 1st century Greek mathematician and engineer who is known as the first inventor of the steam engine.
His steam powered device was called the aeolipile, named after Aiolos, God of the winds. The aeolipile consisted of a sphere positioned in such a way that it could rotate around its axis. Nozzles opposite each other would expel steam and both of the nozzles
would generate a combined thrust resulting in torque, causing the sphere to spin around its axis. The rotation force sped up the sphere up to the point where the resistance from traction and air brought it to a stable rotation speed. The steam was created
by boiling water under the sphere – the boiler was connected to the rotating sphere through a pair of pipes that at the same time served as pivots for the sphere. The replica of Heron’s machine could rotate at 1,500 rounds per minute with a very
low pressure of 1.8 pounds per square inch. The remarkable device was forgotten and never used properly until 1577, when the steam engine was ‘re-invented’ by the philosopher, astronomer and engineer, Taqu al-Din.
2. Is the Assyrian Nimrud lens the oldest telescope in the world?
The Nimrud lens is a 3,000-year-old piece of rock crystal, which was unearthed by Sir John Layard in 1850 at the Assyrian palace of Nimrud, in modern-day Iraq. The Nimrud
lens (also called the Layard lens) is made from natural rock crystal and is a slightly oval in shape. It was roughly ground, perhaps on a lapidary wheel. It has a focal point about 11 centimetres from the flat side, and a focal length of about 12 cm.
This would make it equivalent to a 3× magnifying glass (combined with another lens, it could achieve much greater magnification). The surface of the lens has twelve cavities that were opened during grinding, which would have contained naptha or some
other fluid trapped in the raw crystal. Since its discovery over a century ago, scientists and historians have debated its use, with some suggesting it was used as a magnifying glass, and others maintaining it was a burning-glass used to start fires
by concentrating sunlight. However, prominent Italian professor Giovanni Pettinato proposed the lens was used by the ancient Assyrians as part of a telescope, which would explain how the Assyrians knew so much about astronomy. According to conventional perspectives,
the telescope was invented by Dutch spectacle maker, Hans Lippershey in 1608 AD, and Galileo was the first to point it to the sky and use it to study the cosmos. But even Galileo himself noted that the 'ancients' were aware of telescopes long before him. While
lenses were around before the Nimrud lens, Pettinato believes this was one of the first to be used in a telescope.
Oldest Calendar in Scotland
Research carried out
last year on an ancient site excavated by the National Trust for Scotland in 2004 revealed that it contained a sophisticated calendar system that is approximately 10,000 years old, making it the oldest calendar ever discovered in the world. The site –
at Warren Field, Crathes, Aberdeenshire – contains a 50 metre long row of twelve pits which were created by Stone Age Britons and which were in use from around 8000 BC (the early Mesolithic period) to around 4,000 BC (the early Neolithic). The pits represent
the months of the year as well as the lunar phases of the moon. They were formed in a complex arc design in which each lunar month was divided into three roughly ten day weeks – representing the waxing moon, the full moon and the waning moon. It also
allowed the observation of the mid-winter sunrise so that the lunar calendar could be recalibrated each year to bring it back in line with the solar year. The entire arc represents a whole year and may also reflect the movements of the moon across the sky.
4. Ancient Roman Concrete was Far Superior to Our Own
Scientists studying the composition of Roman concrete, which has been submerged under the Mediterranean Sea
for the last 2,000 years, discovered that it was superior to modern-day concrete in terms of durability and being less environmentally damaging. The Romans made concrete by mixing lime and volcanic rock. For underwater structures, the combination of lime and
volcanic ash with seawater instantly triggered a chemical reaction in which the lime incorporated molecules into its structure and reacted with the ash to cement the whole mixture together. Analysis of the concrete found that it produces a significantly different
compound to modern day cement, which is an incredibly stable binder. In addition, the ancient concrete contains the ideal crystalline structure of Tobermorite, which has a greater strength and durability than the modern equivalent. Finally, microscopic studies
identified other minerals in the ancient concrete which show potential application for high-performance concretes, including the encapsulation of hazardous wastes. "In the middle 20th century, concrete structures were designed to last 50 years," said scientist
Paulo Monteiro said. "Yet Roman harbour installations have survived 2,000 years of chemical attack and wave action underwater.”
metal coatings superior to today’s standards
Research has shown that artisans and craftsmen 2,000 years ago used a form of ancient technology for applying thin films of metal to statues and other items, which was superior to today’s standards for producing DVDs, solar cells, electronic
devices and other products. Fire gilding and silvering are age-old mercury-based processes used to coat the surface items such as jewels, statues and amulets with thin layers of gold or silver. From a technological point of view, what the ancient gilders achieved
2000 years ago, was to make the metal coatings incredibly thin, adherent and uniform, which saved expensive metals and improved its durability, something which has never been achieved to the same standard today. Apparently without any knowledge about
the chemical–physical processes, ancient craftsmen systematically manipulated metals to create spectacular results. They developed a variety of techniques, including using mercury like a glue to apply thin films of metals to objects. The findings demonstrate
that there was a far higher level of understanding and knowledge of advanced concepts and techniques in our ancient past than what they are given credit for.
incredible 2000-year-old earthquake detector
Although we still cannot accurately predict earthquakes, we have come a long way in detecting, recording, and measuring seismic shocks. Many don’t realise that this process began nearly 2000 years ago, with the invention of the first seismoscope
in 132 AD by a Chinese astronomer, mathematician, engineer, and inventor called Zhang (‘Chang’) Heng. The device was remarkably accurate in detecting earthquakes from afar, and did not rely on shaking or movement in the location where the
device was situated. Zhang's seismoscope was a giant bronze vessel, resembling a samovar almost 6 feet in diameter. Eight dragons snaked face-down along the outside of the barrel, marking the primary compass directions. In each dragon's mouth was a small
bronze ball. Beneath the dragons sat eight bronze toads, with their broad mouths gaping to receive the balls. The sound of the ball striking one of the eight toads would alert observers to the earthquake and would give a rough indication of the earthquake's
direction of origin. In 2005, scientists in Zengzhou, China (which was also Zhang's hometown) managed to replicate Zhang's seismoscope and used it to detect simulated earthquakes based on waves from four different real-life earthquakes in China and Vietnam.
The seismoscope detected all of them. As a matter of fact, the data gathered from the tests corresponded accurately with that gathered by modern-day seismometers!
sunstone used as ancient navigational device
An ancient Norse myth described a magical gem used to navigate the seas, which could reveal the position of the sun when hidden behind clouds or even before dawn or after sunset. Now it appears the myth is in fact true. In March 2013, a team of scientists
announced that a unique calcite crystal, which was found in the wreck of an Elizabethan ship sunk off the Channel Islands, contains properties consistent with the legendary Viking sunstone and that shards of the crystal can indeed act as a remarkably precise
navigational aid. According to the researchers, the principle behind the sunstone relies on its unusual property of creating a double refraction of sunlight, even when it is obscured by cloud or fog. By turning the crystal in front of the human eye until
the darkness of the two shadows are equal, the sun's position can be pinpointed with remarkable accuracy.
8. The Baghdad Battery
The Baghdad Battery, sometimes referred to as the Parthian Battery, is a clay pot which encapsulates
a copper cylinder. Suspended in the centre of this cylinder—but not touching it—is an iron rod. Both the copper cylinder and the iron rod are held in place with an asphalt plug. These artifacts (more than one was found) were discovered during the
1936 excavations of the old village Khujut Rabu, near Baghdad. The village is considered to be about 2000 years old, and was built during the Parthian period (250BC to 224 AD). Although it is not known exactly what the use of such a device would have been,
the name ‘Baghdad Battery’, comes from one of the prevailing theories established in 1938 when Wilhelm Konig, the German archaeologist who performed the excavations, examined the battery and concluded that this device was an ancient electric battery.
After the Second World War, Willard Gray, an American working at the General Electric High Voltage Laboratory in Pittsfield, built replicas and, filling them with an electrolyte, found that the devices could produce 2 volts of electricity. The question remains,
if it really was a battery, what was it used to power?
9. 1,600-year-old goblet shows that the Romans
The Lycurgus Cup, as it is known due to its depiction of a scene involving King Lycurgus of Thrace, is a 1,600-year-old jade green Roman chalice that changes colour depending on the direction of the light upon it. It baffled scientists ever since the glass
chalice was acquired by the British Museum in the 1950s. They could not work out why the cup appeared jade green when lit from the front but blood red when lit from behind. The mystery was solved in 1990, when researchers in England scrutinized broken fragments
under a microscope and discovered that the Roman artisans were nanotechnology pioneers: they had impregnated the glass with particles of silver and gold, ground down until they were as small as 50 nanometres in diameter, less than one-thousandth the size of
a grain of table salt. The work was so precise that there is no way that the resulting effect was an accident. In fact, the exact mixture of the metals suggests that the Romans had perfected the use of nanoparticles. When hit with light, electrons belonging
to the metal flecks vibrate in ways that alter the colour depending on the observer’s position.
ancient Antikythera mechanism
The Antikythera mechanism
was discovered in 1900 during the recovery of a shipwreck off of the Greek island, Antikythera, in waters 60 meters deep. It is a metallic device which consists of a complex combination of gears, and dates back to the 2nd century BCE. The Antikythera mechanism
is one of the most amazing mechanical devices discovered from the ancient world. For decades, scientists have utilized the latest technology in attempts to decipher its functionality; however, due to its complexity, its true purpose and function remained
elusive. But in the last few years, a number of scientists appear to have solved the mystery as to precisely how this incredible piece of technology once worked. Peter Lynch, professor of meteorology at University College Dublin, explains: “The mechanism
was driven by a handle that turned a linked system of more than 30 gear wheels…The gears were coupled to pointers on the front and back of the mechanism, showing the positions of the sun, moon and planets as they moved through the zodiac. An extendable
arm with a pin followed a spiral groove, like a record player stylus. A small sphere, half white and half black, indicated the phase of the moon. Even more impressive was the prediction of solar and lunar eclipses.” Amazingly, the device even included
a dial to indicate which of the pan-Hellenic games would take place each year, with the Olympics occurring every fourth year. Just one small cog out of 30 remains a mystery and it is hoped that further research can place this last piece in the puzzle.

20 History Questions They Refuse To Answer In School!
Traditional educational systems
basically teach us that the history of man only dates back to about 8,000 years ago while religious texts date mankind to approximately 6,000 years ago. It is more than obvious that there a massive push to occlude our true history and origins.
While you may not agree with some of the questions, please try to view them with an open mind. As you'll see, the history we have been taught has been manipulated and obscured from us.
Ask yourself (or others) the
following questions and feel free to comment at the end of the article!
A map drawn on a gazelle skin of an unfrozen Antarctica was found in 1929. The map was drawn in 1513 by Piri Reis, who had privileged access to the Imperial
Library of Constantinople. Contained within the notes found on the map, Reis stated that he compiled and copied the data from a large number of source maps, some of which dated back to the 4 BC or earlier. Our history books tell us that Antarctica was discovered
by Captain James Cook while crossing the Antarctic Circle on January 17, 1773 with the ships HMS Resolution and Adventure.
1. How did Reis know of Antarctica several hundred years before Captain James Cook 'discovered' it?
The last time Antarctica was not frozen was at least 4,000 BC, so...
2. Where did the Imperial Library of Constantinople get THEIR information and who is responsible for the initial drawing of
A tiny figurine made of baked-clay was brought up in amongst the debris churned out by a huge drill bit during the drilling of a well in Nampa Idaho in 1889. The object is a one inch long figure with one leg broken
off at the knee.
3. Is it possible that mankind has been here many times LONG BEFORE our recorded past?
4. How many millennia would it take for an object like this to be buried 300 feet into
According to Darwinism, man evolved from ape.
There are approximately 100 pyramids in China which remain hidden under grass and forestry.
If man evolved from ape, then why are there still apes?
6. There are pyramids on every continent of the world. Who built them and why were they built?
In Ecuador, one
large Jade cup and 12 smaller Jade cups were found. Each of the smaller cups are a little bit different in size, but if you were to fill each one and pour them into the larger one, the contents would exactly fill the larger cup. The large cup has a perfect
inlaid star constellation, showing Orion and other stars.
Klaus Dona stated, "inside the big cup it is very, very magnetic and outside the cup nearly nothing. Professional geologists are saying this is impossible because if a stone has metal particles inside the stone,
it must be same magnetic from both sides."
7. If scientists say that it is impossible to have a very magnetic inside of a jade cup with a non-magnetic outside of the same cup, then who created these vessels and where are they
8. Long before our state-sponsored recorded history will admit that civilized man was on Earth, what culture made this coin?
More than 350 artifacts were found in Ecuador in an old tunnel system. One artifact in particular shows the
same pyramid with an all-seeing eye at the top of it (right). Under a black light, the eye takes on an interesting hue while on the bottom of this artifact (see picture below), you can see a star map of Orion's Belt along with writing that is older than any
known writing on this planet. According to the research of Klaus Dona, the same writing has been found all over the world, proving that there was a pre-existing GLOBAL civilization that is much older than any Sanskrit writings.
Why do all history classes exclude this information?
We are seeing a continuing theme involving Orion's Belt. The pyramids on the Giza Plateau also reflect the exact same alignment as the "3 Kings" of Orion's Belt.
10. What visitors came to this planet from Orion's Belt?
11. What is the significance of the Orion's Belt constellation?
Kurt Schildmann, former President of the German Linguistic Association, called this writing "pre-Sanskit" (older than 6,000 years old) and was able to translate the writing as follows:
“The son of the creator comes.”
12. What is the true meaning of this pyramid and why is this symbol still being used?
In the pre-religious Anunnaki creation myth, Anu had 2 sons, Enki and Enlil. Enki, also known as Ea (as in EArth)
in Sumerian texts, was loving and kind to the genetically modified humans who mined gold for the Anunnaki.
13. Does “The son of the creator comes” refer to Enki?
and New Testament of the Christian bible clearly shows one vengeful god who kills millions of people while an apparently different god who is all loving.
14. Does the bible reflect the story of Enlil (Old Testament, malevolent
towards humans) and Enki (New Testament, all-loving toward humans)?
In the Old Testament, Genesis 1:26, it states, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness."
15. Who is "us" and "our"?
in Dorchester, Massachusetts, a 4-1/2 inch high zinc and silver alloy vase was dynamited out of solid rock 15 feet below the surface. On the sides were figures of flowers in bouquet arrangements, inlaid with pure silver. The rock out of which it came is estimated
to be 100,000 years old.
16. According to academia, what civilization was capable of this type of art 100,000 years ago?
Over 200 metallic spheres have been found in South Africa and are estimated to be 4,500 million years old.
There are two types of spheres: "one of solid bluish metal with white flecks, and another which is a hollow ball filled with a white spongy center" (Jimison, 1982).
17. Our recorded history tells us that civilized man has only
been here anywhere between 6-8,000 years, so who made these spheres millions of years beforehand?
With the exception of stone and precious metals, virtually everything we own right now would eventually turn to dirt
throughout the millennia, including all of our TV's, cellphones, cars, planes and everything made of plastic. If by chance, some major catastrophe were to hit our planet, within 100,000 years, just about every hint of civilization would be buried under years
18. Is it possible that there are malevolent rulers who have kept us in economic subservience for literally hundreds of thousands of years, if not millions of years?
religions seem to share similar stories.
19. Is it possible that this template has been used since the earliest incarnations came to this planet, perhaps billions of years ago?
20. When will
we finally learn to live without being economic slaves to the same system of domination and control?

Flower of Life
Flower of Life
of Life is the modern name given to a geometrical figure composed of multiple evenly-spaced, overlapping circles, that are arranged so that they form a flower-like pattern with a sixfold symmetry like a hexagon. The center of each circle is on the
circumference of six surrounding circles of the same diameter.
It is considered by some to be a symbol of sacred geometry, said to contain ancient, religious value depicting the fundamental forms
of space and time. In this sense, it is a visual expression of the connections life weaves through all sentient beings, believed to contain a type of Akashic Record of basic information of all living things.
There are many spiritual beliefs associated
with the Flower of Life; for example, depictions of the five Platonic Solids are found within the symbol of Metatron's Cube, which may be derived from the Flower of Life pattern. These platonic
solids are geometrical forms which are said to act as a template from which all life springs.
Another notable example of that which may be derived from the Flower of Life is the Tree of Life. This has been an important symbol of sacred geometry
for many people from various religious backgrounds. Particularly, the teachings of the Kabbalah have dealt intricately with the Tree of
According to Drunvalo Melchizedek, in the Judeo-Christian tradition, the stages which construct the Seed of Life are said to represent
the seven days of Creation, in which Elohim (God/concept of divinity) created life; Genesis 2:2-3, Exodus 23:12, 31:16-17, Isaiah 56:6-8. Within these stages, among other things, are the symbols of the Vesica
Piscis (an ancient religious symbol) and Borromean rings (which represents the Holy Trinity).
of Life in History and Culture
The Temple of Osiris at Abydos, Egypt contains the oldest known examples
of the Flower of Life. Precisely how old these inscriptions are is unknown. Suggestions that they are over 6,000 years old and may date back to as long ago as 10,500 B.C. or earlier are entirely speculative and not based on any factual reality.
most recent research shows that these symbols can be no earlier than 535 B.C. and most probably date to between the 2nd and 4th century AD, based upon photographic evidence of Greek text, still to be fully deciphered, seen alongside the Flower of Life circles
and the position of the circles close to the top of columns, which are over 4 metres in height. This suggests the Osirion was half filled with sand prior to the circles being drawn and therefore likely to have been well after the end of the Ptolemaic dynasty.
Possibly five Flower of Life patterns can be seen on one of the granite columns and a further five on a column opposite of the Osirion. Some are very faint and hard to distinguish. They have not been carved into the granite being drawn in red ochre with
Christianity has many symbolic connections to the Flower of Life. Most notably, the Seed of Life and
components within the Seed of Life have strong Christian meaning to them. Such components are the Spherical Octahedron, Vesica Piscis, Tripod
of Life, and Tree of Life (Kabbalah). Also the symbol of Metatron's Cube is delineated by a component of the Flower of Life and has appeared in Christian art.
Kabbalah / Judaism
The Kabbalah, which
has historically been studied by the followers of Judaism, holds some symbolic connections to the Flower of Life.
The symbol of the Tree of Life, which may be derived from the design of the Flower of Life, is studied as part of the teachings of the
Additionally, the symbol of Metatron's Cube, found by connecting the centers of each circle in the Fruit of Life, is seen in early Kabbalist scriptures.
In New Age thought, the
Flower of Life has provided what is considered to be deep spiritual meaning and forms of enlightenment to those who have studied it as sacred geometry.There are groups of people all over the world who derive particular beliefs and forms of meditation based
(at least in part) on the Flower of Life. FlowerofLife.org, for example, coordinates workshops at locations all over the world, in which they teach their New Age beliefs, methods, and interpretations of the Flower of Life.
The concept of the Tree of life has been adopted by some Hermeticists and pagans. The symbol of the Tree of Life may be derived from the Flower of Life.
One of the earliest known occurrences of the Vesica Piscis, and perhaps
first, was among the Pythagoreans, who considered it a holy figure. The Vesica Piscis is a basic component of the Flower of Life.
Components of the Flower of Life have been
a part of the work of Alchemists. Metatron's Cube is a symbol derived from the Flower of Life which was used as a containment circle or creation circle.

Leonardo da Vinci
da Vinci studied the Flower of Life's form and its mathematical properties. He drew the Flower of Life itself, as well as various components such as the Seed of Life. He drew geometric figures representing shapes such as the platonic solids, a sphere,
a torus, etc., and also used the golden ratio of phi in his artwork; all of which may be derived from the Flower of Life design.

Composition of the Flower of Life in Stages
The "Seed of Life" is formed from seven
circles being placed with sixfold symmetry, forming a pattern of circles and lenses, which acts as a basic component of the Flower of Life's design.
According to some researchers, the Seed of Life is a symbol of depicting the seven days of creation
in which God created life; Genesis 2:2-3, Exodus 23:12, 31:16-17, Isaiah 56:6-8. The first day is believed to be the creation of the Vesica Piscis, then the creation of the Tripod of Life on the second day, followed by one sphere added for each subsequent
day until all seven spheres construct the Seed of Life on the sixth day of Creation. The seventh day is the day of rest, known as the "Sabbath" or "Shabbat."
In the 13th century, a Cabalist group from France succeeded, through geometric interpretation,
in dividing the entire Hebrew alphabet into an order using the Seed of Life. The resulting alphabet was remarkably similar to that of the Religious sage Rashi who wrote his commentaries on the Old Testament at that time in France.

- straks før overkoplingen til en engelskmanns kropp skjedde. Denne personen ønsket å komme bort - å dø, og derfor lot han den innvidde tibetanske lamaen Rampa, få overta kroppen, for å utføre en særlig
misjon i vesten. Hele denne prosessen var avtalt og planlagt fra de innvidde i Tibet, og særlig av de på den astrale side av "livet". Og misjonene var å overbringe den esoteriske, åndelige kunnskapen som hadde "overlevd"
(fra Atlantis og tidligere "innvidde tidsaldre") på jorden i nettopp Tibet - å bringe denne kunnskapen til vesten, som levde i åndelig uvitenhet og i dogmatisk stagnerte livssyn, som var ute av kontakt med virkeligheten og som også
var blitt sittende fast i en mer og mer kvelende materialisme.

HOPI: The Real Thing
http://www.ausbcomp.com/redman/hopi.htm HOPI: The Real Thing
Hopi, or Hopituh Shi-nu-mu, "The Peaceful People" or "Peaceful Little Ones," call their ancestors Hisatsinom, ("ee-SAH-tse-nom"), which means the ancient ones.
The Navajo use the word Anasazi, which means ancient enemies. As Hopi they have lived in the Four Corners area for at least 1,000 years. Oraibi, AZ was
settled in 1050 and is the oldest consistently occupied community in North America. Wherever they have lived, the Hopi have always been the Hopi. It is the scientists who use other names.
A division of the Hopi, first of three prophesied, took place
in 1906 when Chief You-kew-ma and his followers were forced out of Oraibi by a pushing contest and began the new community of Hotevilla.
|The meaning of the name Hopi|
How the Hopi Were Named
This is a very long story, so here are the basics.
When the Hopi were first created they had no name. They were created with everlasting life and placed upon the earth to live as one, spiritually.
All was provided for them; they did
not work for their food, there was no illness, and they were to live forever.
They were given laws to live by, but they broke them. For this disobedience they were changed into body and
soul, sickness came into their bodies, and they became mortal.
Some wanted to live simply, but others used cleverness to make things that were not good for them. Those who wanted only
peace emerged into a new world. In this new, beautiful world the Great Spirit, Maasau'u, came to visit them and to test their wisdom.
The people were divided into groups, each with their
own leaders that they had chosen. Then Maasau'u placed ears of corn of different lengths in front of each leader.
As each leader pushed forward to grab the biggest ear of corn the Great
Spirit gave that group a name and a language.
The humblest leader picked the shortest ear of corn, and the name "Hopi" was given to those people: the little ones.
Hopi means to be humble and peaceful, but if the people do not live the Hopi way the name will be taken from them.
The Hopi base their existence on faith only, and
their story is a fascinating tale of that faith sustaining them: "White men come, white men go, but we shall always be here."
According to Hopi beliefs, this
is the fourth creation of life; the three preceeding ending in destruction. Each time conflict, which is not a part of The Hopi Way, came about as men forgot or denied
the plan of the Creator. The faithful were protected underground with the ant people, and the kivas of today are representations of those anthills.
Hopi creation story is about a succession through underworlds and each of these is associated with a specific direction, color, mineral, plant, and bird.
- The First World: "Endless Space" contained the First People and was a pure and happy universe.
It was destroyed by fire.
- The Second World: "Dark Midnight" was destroyed by cold and ice. The Chosen People survived in an anthill and then climbed up a ladder into the third world.
- The Third World was destroyed by floods. Spider Woman saved
these ancestors by hiding them in reeds and floating them to dry land into the Fourth World.
- The Fourth World: "The World Complete." The caretaker of this world is Masau'u, The Fire God. This world is unlike the previous three,
which have been blocked by waters and ice. In the past worlds they had been well-provided for, but the fourth world has proven to be harsh, with deserts, marshes, mountains, and violent weather. The Hopi say this world is now ending and the Fifth World has
For a source of research, a book entitled The Truth has some unususal ideas. There are other articles connected to this link, and a story of a
trip down the Colorado River 90 years ago which led to the discovery of the Hopi connection with Egypt and Tibet.
The story of the Hopi journeys shows knowledge that is a study in itself. They speak of struggling through jungles, of building cities and leaving ruins behind.
We continue to trace these connections.
The Hopi say that their ancestors migrated from many places and settled near the Grand Canyon. Their story is an
interesting one that is also partly covered in theChaco Canyon article.
The cliff paintings at Chaco Canyon and Mesa Verde are
guides for Hopi clansmen to follow, and they claim to have built the snake-shaped mounds in the eastern United States.
A common thread weaves its way across this continent to lend substance to this amazing story: The "putting on of the horns," which
is the phrase used by the Iroquois to denote attaining chief status, is also of the Hopi, and many other tribes.
An interesting note to all these connections: Tibet is exactly on the opposite side of the planet from the Hopi Reservation. The Tibetan
word for "sun" is the Hopi word for "moon." The Hopi word for "sun" is the Tibetan word for "moon."
are many relationships with other peoples, both in the area, and afar, that can be traced by the language. The Hopi language is of the Uto-Aztecan family, which is closely related to the Northern Paiute and the Aztecs of Mexico, and the Hopi dialect is Shoshone.
Many Pueblo people along the Rio Grande speak the Tanoan languages, which are of the second branch of the Azteco-Tanoan group. This is also the language of the Kiowa. Others in the same area speak Keresan languages, which belong
to the Hokan-Siouan group. The Hopi recognize a distant relationship with all the peoples along the Rio Grande as well as with the Pima and Papago. The Kiowa-Apache share a language group with the Hopi, which leads full circle to the Navajo. An article connecting
all these peoples by language is forth-coming, and far-reaching research has led to Ireland. There will be many family trees shaken.
A continuing mystery of the area are the Zuni, whose way of life is very like the Hopi,
but who speak a language unlike any other Native American Indian peoples. Strangely enough, research of the Zuni has led to a Libyan connection. More to follow.
The Hopi Way
The Hopi Way is one of peace and is holistic; their name Hopituh
Shi-nu-mu, can be interpreted as "The Peaceful Little People." All of daily life is part of their religion, and their belief is to help others improve their life.
Twelve clan groups,
called phratries, have many clans within them, each with its own ceremonies and sacred fetishes. Though men are the religious leaders, the children inherit the clan of their mother.
Though the men own the livestock and the fruit trees, the women own all the land, even that under the fruit trees. As many as 24 varieties of corn are grown and due to arid conditions the roots may grow 20 feet down. Each plant has many ears of corn. To
supplement the staple of corn the Hopi gather more than 100 wild plants.
Kivas are the center of religious life and are mostly used by the men. Stone walls line the underground chambers
and a hole sipapu in the floor of the kiva symbolizes the exit from the ant people's domain.
is life for the Hopi and binds the village into a solid community. Most ceremonies relate to rain. Katsinas or kachinas, of which there are about 350, are the
guarding spirits that come down from their world at winter solstice, remaining in the people until summer solstice.
Instruction in the Hopi religion begins at an early age for the children. Dolls called tithu are given them to represent
the katsinum. These are not toys, but reminders. First of these given to the child represents Hahai'i wuhti, the mother of the katsinum.
Through childhood obedience is instilled by rewards and punishments,
which includes whippings administered by men in katsina masks. To the children these are the true katsinas. Somewhere between the ages of 8 to 13 the men behind the masks reveal themselves to the child and so begins their initiation into the adult world; they
will become the men behind the masks.
The religious dances also feature men wearing masks to portray these katsinas, with the snake dance as the final ceremony. There is a prophecy tied to the katsina dancers: When the Saquasohuh (Blue
Star) katsina removes his mask in front of the uninitiated all Hopi ceremonies will end and faith will end also. A renewing will take place in Oraibi, beginning a new cycle of Hopi life.
Saquasohuh is believed by some to represent the Hale-Bopp comet.
The Wuwuchim ceremony includes a song that tells of this, and this song was sang in 1914, preceeding WWI, in 1940, pre WWII, and again in 1961. The Hopi say that the emergence into the Fifth World of the future has begun.
nine prophecies connected with the nine worlds. Four have been fulfilled by the previous three worlds and the present world; the Fifth is being fulfilled. The future prophecies are of the worlds to come, and the world of the Creator, Taiowa, and Sotuknang, the
The Hopi wear their hair in bangs as a window to recognize the True White Brother, and also as a sign for him to recognize them.
Editor's note: I have a viewpoint on this and express it in the Clamor Seven: SEE: Ancient Prophecies
True White Brother
The Ceremonial Calendar
Preparation for the ceremonies begins
in the kivas, some of which are rectangular, with the eastern pueblos kivas being round or oval. Prayer is offered before the altar, and sacred cornmeal, tobacco, and feathered prayer-sticks are used in this offering. Tobacco smoke is rain clouds.
The ceremonial dancers send a prayer to the spirits below by stamping on a cottonwood covering of the sipapu before coming out to dance.
The Crier Chief comes forth to announce all ceremonies. Kachina dances begin with the dance leader following "grandfather" into the plaza. Drummers join in and all move in a counter-clockwise direction, with the dance leader in the center. In the social
dances the singers and drummers remain apart.
- NOVEMBER: Wuwuchim is a 16 day ceremony which is the first of a three-part celebration of the creation of the universe. The religious societies perform the New Fire ceremony in their respective kivas, and the young men are initiated
into the tribe.
- DECEMBER: Soyal is the appearance of the first kachina at Winter Solstice. He wears a turquoise helmet and walks like a toddler, representing the rebirth of new life.
- FEBRUARY: Powamu, which
means "purification", includes the bean dance and the initiation of the small children into the tribal societies. Monsters enter the village and go to each house, threatening to eat children who have misbehaved, and demanding fresh meat.
my opinion that these monsters represent hunger and the lesson of preparing for winter is well-taught.)
In photos I have seen these men are fully dressed in leggings, footwear, and robes. They are wearing masks with long beaks
and many teeth, and headdresses of feathers. Each was carrying a bow. In the kivas beans are sprouted and this is the proof of life in the middle of winter.
(Another opinion: Perhaps these beans are sprouted by holding them under the armpits. Sprouting
seeds doubles their nutrition and this is a clever way to survive without firewood.)
- MARCH through JUNE: Plaza dances.
- JULY: Niman, is the Home Dance, another 16 day ceremony. These are the last dances of
the kachinas before they return to their spirit home. Hemis is tha main kachina in the Niman dance.
- AUGUST: In alternate years either the Snake
Dance, or the Flute Dance is performed.
- SEPTEMBER: Lakon, a basket dance, and Marawu.These are the
first of the women's societies dances. These celebrate the completion and the harvesting of the crops, and are also curative.
- OCTOBER: Owaqlt, a basket dance by the women's societies. This is the close of the yearly cycle and again
in November the creation dances begin.
Hopi Snake Dance
The Snake Dance requires two weeks of ritual preparation, and the snakes are gathered. They are kept watch over by children until time for the dance. By percentage of the local snake population most are rattlesnakes, but all are handled freely.
The dancers then take an emetic and dance with the snakes in their mouths, with an Antelope Priest in attendance. He strokes the snakes with a feather and sometimes helps support the weight of the larger
snakes. After the dance the snakes are released to carry prayers. According to people who have investigated, the emetics are not an anti-venom.
Hopi Flute Dance
The Flute Dance is a nine-day ceremony that begins at the
main village spring, with the Flute Boy and the Flute Maidens followed by the Flute Priests. Then the Flute Society enters the plaza walking over sacred cornmeal, which represents rain clouds. This group is led by the Kaletaka, the warrior.
The sacred clowns of the Hopi have a unique function in their society and the religious right to enact by negative example what should
not be done. Humiliation and ridicule are their methods, and no one is immune to their rudeness. Stripping another naked is not going too far. Misbehavior of people in the community is dramatized, and the culprit takes the hint.
The clowns are the ultimate tradition keepers. If work needs to be done the clowns recruit the workers. They cannot be denied.
White ways, such as money, missionaries, and teachers
sent to the Hopi have been the subject of the clowns' derision.
In the 1960's an unusual drama was inspired. An eerie sound was made by twirling a piece of hose, and two aluminum pie
tins were thrown over the houses. The clowns came down from the clouds (over the rooftops) dressed in shiny silver and painted green, demanding to be taken to the leaders. All this was done to make fun of a leader at a nearby village who was making a public
uproar about UFO's.
Many Hopi ceremonies were photographed in 1904 - 1906, but beginning in 1911 all cameras were forbidden. This now
includes recording and sketching of Hopi villages and ceremonies. At last report 10 of the villages no longer allow visitors for religious ceremonies. Some are closed entirely.
- The Hopi Stone-Eater Kachina: Owanja-Zrozro (The Mad One) is their deity to the reality of psychiatric disorder.
- The Hopi place of emergence "Sipayu" is now almost closed because man has departed from true ways.
- The Hale-Bopp comet is considered to be an end-time sign.
- To the Hopi the present world is the fourth; to the Navajo
the present world is the fifth.
- The Hopi must escape to above worlds because of flood - or contamination.
The Hopi and Navajo have these beliefs in common:
- Sandpainting for sale always
contains errors so as not to offend the higher powers.
- The PLEIADES Constellation is painted on Black God's cheek. He arranged these "star rocks" in the night sky.
- Origin myths are not to be recorded, only told to the initiated.
This has changed, and peoples from all around the planet are coming forth with ancient teachings.
- Bad behavior explained: "He doesn't know any better, he had no grandfather
to give him the stories."
The Hopi Today
1882, President Chester A. Arthur "settled" the land dispute with the Navajo/Hopi Partition and the Hopi reservation was established along the southern end of Black Mesa,
where families had lived at least 650 years ago (circa 1340). Now they are completely surrounded by the Navajo Reservation.
What the map does not show
is there is a small Navajo Reservation inside the Hopi Reservation.
Because land is part of each tribe's religion complications arose concerning the use of land by people living on land that is considered to be holy. And so came about The Bennett Freeze. Nobody is happy.
All tribes have factions. There has always been the concept of "friendly" as opposed to "hostile." Here are generalized definitions
- The "friendlies" are the people who used to hang around the trading posts and forts, and who are today the tribal leaders who argue semantics and deal with the U.S government. Many of the traditionalist people, the "hostiles," do not
consider these leaders as representatives.
- The "hostiles" are the traditionalists who own a digging stick and live on faith and 5 to 10 inches of rain a year. They do not want their land mined by anyone, they do not want electrical lines strung, as
these are the "cobwebs" in their prophecies, and they are not interested in "outside" help, or outside opinions.
With that in mind you will understand these figures better: The Hopi annual budget is about $28 million, with one-half
of that coming from the U.S. Federal Budget, and the other main revenue is from the Peabody Coal Company.
This is on-going research and far from complete:
There are eleven Hopi villages in NE Arizona on Black Mesa, a rock land table, and the major ones are on three high mesas. The current Hopi population is between 10,000 and 12,000, and some information says
that there are 12 villages. We will have further information on the origin and development of these villages.
Each Hopi village is independent, with its own style of government. Style
of crafts vary by village, but Kachina dolls (tithu) are made by all. Any dolls that are sold always have errors in them, as the true tithu are not for sale.

Third Mesa: Craft specialty is wicker and twill basketry.
- Hoatvela (Hotevilla): This is a newer community A division of the Hopi, first of three prophesied, took place in 1906 when Chief You-kew-ma and his followers were forced out of Oraibi by a pushing contest and began the new community of Hotevilla.
- Paaqavi (Bacavi)
- Munqapi (Moencopi)(Moenkopi) This is an outlying village.
- Kiqotsmovi (Kykotsmovi)
- Orayvi (Oraibi)
Many of the villages are now
closed to visitors for the religious ceremonies and it is best to inquire first. Photos, sketching, and video and sound recording are prohibited, and questions are disrespectful. The Hopi share some religious beliefs with other tribes, but there is no world
like the Hopi and it must be seen first-hand. Anthropologists agree that the Hopi are "the real thing."

Kogi - Tairona
Kogi - Tairona
The Tairona were a precolombian civilization in the region of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in the present-day Magdalena and La Guajira Departments of Colombia, South America which goes back to the 1st century AD and showed documented
growth around in the 11th century. The Tairona people formed one of the two principal groups of the Chibcha and were pushed into submarginal regions by the Spanish conquest. The Kogi indigenous people who live in the area today are direct descendants of the
Knowledge sources about the precolombian Tairona civilization are limited to archaeological findings and a few written references from the Spanish colonial era. A major city of the Tairona and archaeological site is today known as Ciudad Perdida
(Spanish for "Lost City"), it was discovered by treasure hunters in 1975. The Tairona are known to have built terraced platforms, house foundations, stairs, sewers, tombs, and bridges from stone. Use of pottery for utilitarian and ornamental/ceremonial purposes
was also highly developed.
Tairona Gold Pendants - Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City
The Tairona civilization is most renown for its distinctive
goldwork. The earliest known Tairona goldwork has been described for the Neguanje Period (from about 300- 800 AD) and its use within the Tairona society appears to have extended beyond the elite. The gold artifacts made comprise pendants, lip-plugs, nose ornaments,
necklaces, and earrings. Gold cast Tairona figure pendants (known as "caciques") in particular stand out among the goldworks of precolumbian America because of their richness in detail. The figurines depict human subjects - thought be noblemen or chiefs -
in ornate dresses and with a large animal mask over the face. Many elements of their body posture (e.g., hands on their hips) and dress signal an aggressive stance and hence are interpreted as evidence for the power of the wearer and the bellicose nature of
The tribe known as 'Los Kogui' are today's custodians of the Tairona
culture. They have a population of approximately 12,000 people. The and are called the Kogi. The Kogi plant crops and live off the land. They prefer not to mix with outsiders. Few Colombians, or those from the outside worlds, are allowed to enter their mountain.
They marry in their culture. The Kogi constantly move about from place to place, between their different abodes spread among the different levels of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. This is looked upon as taking care of their nutritional needs without abusing
The Kogi or Cogui or Kagaba, translated "jaguar" in the Kogi language are a Native American ethnic group that lives in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia. Their civilization has continued since the Pre-Columbian era. The Kogi
language belongs to the Chibchan family.
The Kogi claim to be descendants of the Tairona culture, which flourished before the time of the Spanish conquest. The Tairona were forced to move into the highlands when the Caribs invaded around 1000 CE, according
to the Federal Research Division of the Library of Congress which allowed them to evade the worst effects of the Spanish colonization. Like so many ancient myths concerning holy mountains at the "centre of the world", their mythology teaches that they are
"Elder Brothers" of humanity, living in the "Heart of the World" (the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta). Those not living in the Heart of the World are called "Younger Brothers." Their mythology suggests that these Younger Brothers were sent away from the heart
of the world long ago, seemingly in reference to these same Carib people who are said to have originated from South America.
The Sierra Nevada, in the shape of a pyramid,
rises from the sunny coasts of the Caribbean tropics to the chilly, snow-capped peaks that reach a height of 17,000 feet above sea level, all in only 30 horizontal miles. Within just fifty kilometres the northern slopes descend from snow capped peaks to the
turquoise waters, tropical jungle shores and coral reefs of the Caribbean ocean.
Day and night are of equal length all year round.
The area has every eco-system
in its 17,000 km2 area (8,000 sq. miles) You can find coral reefs, mangroves, arid deserts, rain and cloud forest, and in the higher elevations, plains and snow-capped peaks with temperatures close to 20 degrees C. The highest peak is the Pico Simon Bolivar
at 5,775 metres.
In 1965, archeologists found the remains of a lost Tairona religious center and called it the 'Lost City.' It is a three-day hike in dense jungle to witness a true wonder of the past. It is believed that there are two more lost cities.
These highlands are inhabited by the Gods and the spirits of the dead. A universe of signs and symbols, this territory is a veritable "open book" which is their bridge to the world and their collective history.
The Kogi believe the Sierra Nevada
to be the 'Place of Creation' and the 'Heart of the World'. They call themselves the Elder Brothers of humanity and consider their mission to care for planet. They understand how the planet works as an integrated unit rather than the separation of all things
in our worlds.
Much like other ancient tribal civilizations, that still exist on the planet, they believe themselves to be the custodians of the planet Earth here to keep things in balance.
The Kogi base their lifestyles on their belief in "The Great Mother," their creator figure, whom they believe is the force behind nature, providing
guidance. The Kogi understand the Earth to be a living being, and see the colonizers' mining, building, pollution and other activities damaging the Great Mother.
From birth the Kogi attune their priests, called Mamas, to the mystic world called Aluna.
It is in this "spirit-realm" that the Mamas operate to help the Great Mother sustain the Earth. Through deep meditation and symbolic offerings, the Mamas believe they support the balance of harmony and creativity in the world. It is also in this realm that
the essence of agriculture is nurtured: seeds are blessed in Aluna before being planted, to ensure they grow successfully.
They achieve this through meditation wherein they communicate with all living things on the planet - humans, animals, plants,
They live in Aluna, an inner world of thought and potential. From Aluna they astral travel or remote view to places both on and off the physical planet. Their sacred lands are perceived as a metaphysical symbol of cosmic forces within the
whole world - an oracle of the natural balance and health of the planet.
As with other indigenous tribes, Kogi society has changed little in the past five centuries. They survived as a culture because the Kogi focus all their energy on the life of the
mind as opposed to the life of a body or an individual. Fundamental to that survival is the maintenance of physical separation from their world and the rest of humanity. They are very protective of their sacred space and the dense jungle is not kind to tourists.
They worry about the destruction of the rain forest as well as the planet itself. This area embraces some of the most biologically diverse tropical rainforests on the planet. The Kogi are inseparable from the rainforest habit in which they have lived since
the dawn of time.
Through oracle propheices and message with Spirit, they are aware of a great change that is coming now to planet Earth. Their Mountain is dying, symbolizing this transition. Similar to what many other tribes around the world see is
a world that was about to be destroyed by the misuse of consciousness. Then they saw the emergence of light consciousness as part of the process of humanity emerging as a race of beings in higher evolved light bodies. This strongly connects with the metaphysical
teachings of our times.
Shamanic Practices - Coca Plant
Shaman are called Mamas
Mamas are chosen from birth and spend the first nine years of childhood in a cave in total darkness learning the ancient secrets of the spiritual world or Aluna. They are the priests and judges who control Kogi society.
All major decisions and shamanic
work are done by Divination. All is the world of Aluna, so the Mamas see a reflection of the physical world first in the spiritual world. If Aluna is the Mother, then the Kogi listen to the Mother by divining. This lost technique of divination is what keeps
the Kogi world in balance and order.
The Mamas - as with other spiritual tribal leaders around the world - are worried that the Younger Brother has not heeded the first warning. If the Sierra Nevada or the Mother dies, the world will also die.
use the coca bush for many things. Myths reveal that it was the Aluna herself who instituted coca chewing among the Kogi and who gave a lime gourd to her first son, as a symbolic wife. Other myths tell that coca was originally discovered in the flowing hair
of a young girl who let her father only participate in its use. An envious and jealous young man transformed himself into a bird and, after watching the girl bathing in the river, seduced her. When he returned home and changed back into human shape, he shook
his hair and out of it fell two coca seeds.
Small plantations of coca shrubs are found near all Kogi settlements, and provide the men with tender green leaves, plucked by the women. All adult men chew the slightly toasted leaves, adding to the moist
wad small portions of lime. Coca shrubs are planted and tended by the men but the leaves are gathered by women. Periodically the men toast these leaves inside the temple, using for this end a special double-handled pottery vessel. This ritual vessel made by
a Kogi priest can be used only for the toasting of coca leaves.
When chewed with coca, lime is a substance which helps the mucous membranes in the mouth absorb the alkaloids in the leaves. The Kogi produce Lime by burning sea shells on a small pyre
carefully constructed with chosen splints. The fine white powder is then sifted into a ritual gourd which is carried by all men.
The Lime container consists of a small gourd which is slightly pear-shaped and perforated along the top. While all lime
gourds consist of the same raw material, the wood of the stick which is inserted into it, must correspond to the patriline of the owner. Each patriline uses a different wood taken from the trees belonging to certain botanical species. The length of the stick
may vary from 20 to 30cms. and, together with the degree of surface polish, these various characteristics identify its owner. An initiated Kogi man will easily recognise the patriline of his companions, simple by looking at their lime sticks.
importance of the lime container and its stick is manifold. In one, most important image, the gourd is a woman. During the marriage ceremony the mama gives the bridegroom a gourd with these words: "Now I give you a lime gourd; I give you a woman." He then
hands the bridegroom the lime stick and orders him to perforate with it the gourd at its upper end, thus symbolising the act of deflowering the bride.
Both men and women say quite openly that coca chewing has an aphrodisiacal effect upon male sexuality,
and newly wed couples are very outspoken about this. Male initiation, marriage, and habitual coca chewing are three elements which coincide at a certain period in a young mans life. Young men sometimes say that they dislike coca chewing but most of them, sooner
or later, yield to the pressures exercised by the priests and the older generation, and adopt the habit.
While slowly chewing some twenty or thirty toasted leaves, the man will wet the lower and slightly pointed end of the stick with saliva and will
insert it into the gourd. Withdrawing the stick again he will put the adhering lime into his mouth. Immediately he will rub the stick around the top of the gourd in a circular motion. Eventually, this daily repeated action of rubbing the stick on the gourd
surface begins to form a thin layered crust of yellowish-white lime that covers the upper part of the container. Some old lime gourds display a disc shaped accretion of up to 10cms. in diameter, carefully fashioned by the gourd's owner.
The many symbolic
meanings of coca chewing and of the physical objects involved in this act, form a coherent whole. In macrocosmic perspective, a lime gourd is a model of the universe; the stick when inserted, becomes a world axis, and knowledgeable men will be able to talk
at great length, explaining the structure of the universe in terms of levels, rims or directions appearing on the gourd.
On another scale, the gourd can be compared to the Sierra Nevada; the lime-splattered upper part are the snow peaks, and the stick
is the world axis. Certain mountain peaks, crowned with white, rocky cliffs, are the Sun's lime containers, and so are all the temples and houses.
The coca plant is an integral part of the Kogi way of life, deeply involved with their traditions, religion,
work and medicine. Perhaps the most ancient use of coca in South America is its employment in shamanistic practises and religious rituals. The mild mental excitation induced by chewing the coca leaves enables the shaman to enter more easily into a trance state
in which he could communicate with the spiritual forces of nature and summon them to his aid.
Large scale deforestation and clearing of the jungle is posing a massive threat to the natural habitat of the Sierra Nevada and its flora and fauna. In recent
years the sinister illusion of the marijuana cultivation practised by settlers from inland and fueled by encouragement by the Columbian and International mafia has destroyed vast areas of the jungle.
As the world becomes 'smaller' - and 'old' meets 'new' - even the most ancient civilizations will become part of the evolution now occurring for all of humanity as a race. Nothing in human history ever remains the same as we move
through our journey back to our spiritual origins.
In 1990 the Kogi decided they must speak out to the rest of the world. They had survived by keeping themselves isolated but they decided that it was time to send a message to the Younger Brother. They
could see that something was wrong with their mountain, with the heart of the world. The snows had stopped falling and the rivers were not so full. If their mountain was ill then the whole world was in trouble.
The Mamas sent one of the Kogi who spoke
Spanish to contact a British film maker who was in Colombia at that time. They asked the BBC to make a film to tell the Younger Brother about their concern. It was called 'The Elder Brother's Warning 'or' The Message from the Heart of the World'. Alan Ereira,
the producer, has also written a book about the Kogi calledThe Heart of the World.
Since the film was brought out many changes have taken place. The film had a major impact on
the Colombian Government and also on the grave robbers. The grave robbers felt that they should stop because they felt bad about disturbing their ancestors. There are now two Kogi members of parliament. The Tairona Heritage Trust was set up to support the
Kogi and to buy back some of the original Kogi lands to give them a passage to the sea.
The Kogi people live largely in peace amongst themselves and their environment.
They use slash-and-burn farming methods; each family tends farms at varying altitudes of the Sierra, producing different crops to satisfy the range of their needs, they also raise cattle on the highlands.
To penetrate a Kankurua is to enter into contact with the nine worlds and the nine states of
consciousness that make it up. Some say they have moved beyond verbal language, using tones to create colorful images in their minds rather than thoughts expressed as sentences. Some Kogi speak telepathically to each other.
