Readers of these pages have already encountered the term Kirišti (look it up in the Decoder), which is associated with the concept of Christ. Although this class of being arises in the system of Gagsisá (Sirius), from which Sa'am/Enki embodied genetic material, Parks clearly states that Sa'am/Enki did not meet the genetic requirements for a Kirišti, and Parks himself, as human as you and I, far less so!
This needs to be emphasized, as Parks' information relating to "Neb-Heru" contains clarifications of the term Kirišti and readers are cautioned not to gather from this that Parks is preparing in any way to assume the role of such a being.
Parks includes in his appendix relating to Neb-Heru a very explicit warning about this.
Neb-Heru, the Morning Star
I am not in accord with author Zecharia Sitchin's thesis concerning Nibiru. I am absolutely certain that he describes Venus before it entered the orbit that we know today.
In my appendix to Ádam Genisiš, NEB-HERU, The Morning Star, I bring numerous new elements, in rapport with mythology, that explain that there existed a planet between Mars and Jupiter which I name Mulge (the Black Star). This planet was the base of the Life Designers in the solar system. I have evoked its existence in Le Secret des Etoiles Sombres.
I saw at the time that I received knowledge of this history that Venus was then its satellite. The war that brought the Anunna against their opponents exploded Mulge more than 10,000 years ago. When Mulge exploded, its satellite (the future Venus) was ejected and roamed in the solar system for several thousand years.
In the heart of the ancient Egyptians, Venus is Neb-Heru (the lord Horus), the avenger of his father Osiris. The funerary texts explain this marvelously and clearly associate Horus and afterwards the dead kings (the images of Horus) to the Morning Star.
I have compiled equally a large number of documents proving that Venus wasn't in the place where we know it before 3000 [B.C.E.] Numerous myths relate its wanderings in the solar system. I speak of it in my appendix. I am thus on this point in accord with the work of Immanuel Velikovsky (Worlds in Collision).
Ádam Genisiš includes an appendix of this name, highlighting very telling ancient texts concerning the planet Venus, which they called (among other appellations) the Morning Star, and which they describe as having been a roving star ("astre") before taking its present position in the solar system. As he says, this interpretation was developed by Immanuel Velikovsky in Worlds in Collision.
Yes, we know how Velikovsky fared at the hand of the brilliant Carl Sagan. We hope that our pages may help to redress the affair, which has served to deprive generations of the knowledge which was their birthright.
Parks examines a number of singular documents that confirm, in part, the proposals of Velikovsky, as well as the cosmic events described in Ádam Genisiš, involving the "astre" Mulge-Tab (companion of Mulge). The most eloquent of these documents are funerary Egyptian texts, but others are just as convincing.
Here is a brief outline (paraphrased from Ádam Genisiš) of the method Parks used to develop his "Neb-Heru / Morning Star" scenario.
Document the total conviction of the Mesopotamians about the place of origin of their gods. Set against this ideology the recent astronomical discoveries concerning the solar system. This serves to reestablish a truth long distorted by authors such as Zecharia Sitchin who wished to see in a wandering member of the solar system, the original home of the Anunna "gods" of the Mesopotamian texts.
Attempt to identify this perturbing celestial object. It is found to be mentioned in the Indian Rig-Veda. Draw parallels between this Vedic text and the Egyptian ideology. Note that there is a common source.
Establish that Enki and Osiris were one and the same personage. This leads to the possibility of authenticating the amphibian filiations of Enki-Osiris (Sa'am) as well as his consanguinity with the Abgal Designers-of-Life from Sirius -- those which were considered to be KIR-IS-TI. Together, these facts connect the Kiristi with the Christ, symbolized by the Morning Star in the hermetic passages of the Bible. This in turn leads to interpretations of the meaning of the various crosses found in different parts of the world. Also, explore the sacrificial tradition of the Dogons which recounts the death of Nommo, the "Christ" of Mali. In consequence of this sacrifice, the universe was disrupted, along with the positions of the stars. All of this gives for the first time the opportunity to assimilate the sacrificed celestial Nommo to a celestial body, whose destruction produced the birth of the planet Venus.
Perform a close study of the origins and formation of the planet Venus as seen by different cultures. Note that Venus is always born from the destruction of its progenitor.
Explore the connections between various myths that see the planet Venus as having caused floods over the ages. Noting that in the Mesopotamian traditions, Venus and its progenitor bore the names Neberu and Mulge, begin to understand the hermetic ideology of the Egyptians that saw in the dismembered Osiris the asteroid belt. Discover that the shattered tree of the horizon and the primordial hill from which emerged the new sun (Venus) form an identity: a celestial image of Osiris in the sky. Osiris symbolizes the hill of the ancient gods (Kadištu) because he is their representative on Earth. Horus the Avenger, the posthumous son of Osiris, represents the Morning Star. Show that the various Pharaohs (images of Horus) all symbolize Venus. Discover through a study of the Egyptian funerary texts that the soul of the Pharaohs must make the celestial voyage that permits the rejoining of the dismembered body of Osiris in the sky and restoration of the previously disrupted universe. For that, they must follow the ancient path of Neb-Heru (Horus-Venus), the orbit that goes from the light to the darkness. All these discoveries lead to the resounding evidence that the Mesopotamian astre Neberu and the Egptian Neb-Heru form the same astral image. Provide a graphic showing a possible bit of the object's disruptive trajectory.
Put simply: there was indeed a wandering object in the solar system, which was occasionally highly disruptive to the Earth (and other planets). Its birth out of the destruction of another celestial body was observed by humans, as was its eventual assumption of a stable solar orbit. We know it as Venus. It never was the home of the gods, and there is no such place associated with the solar system. But there are deep connections between this object - Venus - and Horus/Neb-Heru, with Osiris identified as its progenitor.
"Neberu" vs. the Planets X
Parks first examines Zecharia Sitchin's assertions that the Sumerians placed the origins of the Anunnaki on a wandering planet that they named "Neberu" or "Nibiru". This planet, according to Sitchin, possesses a highly elliptical orbit of period 3600 terrestrial years. Sitchin apparently derives this idea solely from the clay tablet "VA-243", which he believes shows the mysterious astre revolving around a sun.
But this is not any sort of astronomical document. It contains three lines of text, simply indicating: "Dusbsiga (a personal name), Ili-Illat (personal name), your servant". There is no allusion to Neberu and no trace of this planet as the home of the Anunna(ki) "gods". Nor is there any tablet that declares such a thing.
I repeat, there is none! [If there were,] the whole world could verify it, a thing which has definitely not been done up to the present. I insist and I show this in my recent book. I am not asking anyone to believe words that I have received affirming "this version is better than any other". On the contrary, I must insist that M. Sitchin doesn't seem to know the truth about the tablets that he pretends to analyze. Otherwise, he would long ago have given the references to those tablets that a rash handful have demanded of him for years...
Nowhere is there any written allusion such as "the Anunna of Neberu" or "the gods of Neberu" or "they descended from Neberu". [GMSS]
On the contrary, all the Mesopotamian texts evoke a unique place of origin for the Anunna(ki), clearly denominated Dukù, of which the sense is "sacred mound" or "holy mound".
The Gina'abul-Anunna and the Sumerians had the habit of using the terms "mountain" or "mound" to poetically name heavenly places in the sky, and more precisely stars and planets. The Sumerians utilized this same term Dukù to designate chapels in Eridu and Nippur, in honor of the primordial hilltop of the "gods".
No need to search for any connection between the Dukù and Neberu; there is none.
But Neberu plays a key role in Sitchin's thesis. The Anunnaki needed Earth's gold to place in the atmosphere of their distressed planet in order to fix the sunlight; this was supposed to help retain the atmosphere. Thus the need for gold mines and for human slaves to work in them.
But as explained in Le Secret des Etoiles Sombres and Ádam Genisiš, the gold served a radically different purpose, in relation to the secret of immortality! See our page Twilight of the Age of Heroics for specific information about this.
Meanwhile, neither Sitchin nor anyone else has identified one word of support for the gold-in-the-atmosphere thesis in the Mesopotamian mythology. Furthermore, the name Neberu (Nibiru) itself is rarely found, and when it is, it seems to be associated with the planet Jupiter or with Mercury.
If Neberu indeed exists, would it not be one of the objects recently discovered (since 2002) at the periphery of the solar system? Let's look at their characteristics:
Many of these have highly-elongated orbits, yet they are all transneptunian, meaning that they never come within the orbit of Neptune -- a minimum requirement, one would think, for the Mesopotamians to have seen them raging through the sky. And not one of them has an orbital period anywhere near 3600 years.
How could Neberu be any of these?
There is also a problem stemming from the name given to Pluto by the Sumerians and Akkadians: ŠU-PA. Sitchin translates this as "the supervisor of SU". Parks explains why this cannot be correct, and opts to translate ŠU-PA as "the control of the ramification (branch point)", meaning the planet that controls the astres and planetoids situated outside the solar system. The Sumerians recognized Pluto as the first planetoid of a very large family!
Parks also notes that the descriptions of the solar system cited by Sitchin to validate his thesis all imply the presence of the asteroid belt. We will see that this dates from approximately 10,000 years ago; various other traditions distinctly hold this notion, as we shall also see.
That said, we note all the same the fact that the Mesopotamian astronomers did seem well acquainted with an obscure Neberu, whose periodic passages frightened everyone.
Parks proposes that the Sumerian "gods" knew the solar system well, including the position of Pluto. But the "gods", and by consequence the Mesopotamians, had not been able to tabulate the planets beyond Pluto because they are unnumerable. And this corresponds well to the way recent astronomical discoveries are pointing.
It is perfectly possible that a planet matching the characteristics of Sitchin's Nibiru may someday be found. But what would qualify it to be the "10th planet" (12th by Sitchin's counting)?
And as to such a planet's being the original planet of the Sumerian "gods", the clay tablets and all of Parks' work state otherwise.
But Parks' work is not concerned with this issue. His Neb-Heru, the Morning Star appendix to Ádam Genisiš is devoted to demonstrating that at a certain epoch of our story, an astre -- a celestial object, in this case a planet -- that was already a part of the solar system, was displaced, and strongly perturbed all the planets of this system over a period of several millennia. And this planet is easily identified.
Sitchin's Nibiru and the Longevity of the Anunnaki
Throughout his books, and in public talks, Zecharia Sitchin has ascribed the remarkable longevity of the Anunnaki to their home dwelling place, the planet Nibiru, whose orbital period is 3600 earth years. This, he says, means that every year of the life of an Anunnaki god equals 3600 years of earth human life.
That no one challenges Sitchin on this nutty idea is a tribute to the cultish quality of his following. However he was challenged once - by me, at a public appearance in the Bay Area. I simply asked him how he might justify the assertion that longevity and aging are linked to the length of a planet's year.
His (smirking) reply: "Next question?"
I won't easily forget that arrogant smirk. May I say, you have in this exchange the epitome of the Sitchinesque logic and reasoning methodology.
Identifying the Celestial Disrupter
The epoch of disruption would have occurred within the time embraced by the history of long-lived indigenous cultures still found on the earth today. This motivates Parks - as it did Velikovsky and others - to delve into diverse mythologies, searching for descriptions of the disruptions and whatever caused them.
Tales of monumental disruptions are common. As to what caused them, the source is often described as a fiery celestial visitor, and as often as not, the visitor is personified as a god.
Mythologists readily accept such cultural myths of gods as descriptions of natural events. Parks follows this practice, while also knowing that actual living beings were also seen as gods.
This might tend to confuse the reader. Really it should not, when it is recalled that memories of both powerful beings and powerful celestial events were accumulated and retained over thousands of years... and memories can be quite plastic.
Parks begins the quest with the Indian Rig-Veda and its description of the awesome Agni [Decoder], god of fire and sacrifice, the celestial perturber that heaved the earth, yet a warrior in the personal sense, mighty in combat.
Parks traces connections between the Vedic Agni and the biblical Lucifer (Venus), the Latin name meaning "light bearer". In the Greek version of the Bible, Lucifer is named Phosphorus, which also translates as "light bearer". Doubtless from the celebrated passage in Isaiah, "How are you fallen from the sky, Star of the Morning (phosphorus)?..." the Christian church makes the erroneous association with Satan (look up this name in the Decoder).
Parks provides several astonishingly parallel references to Agni in the Rig-Veda.
Note: Of necessity we are being brief; Parks' treatment of the Indian and other myths in his appendix is lengthy. As with other aspects of his work, we cannot provide the details on these pages, but we do attempt to trace the outline or structure of his material, to at least help the reader gain an appreciation of the logical development.
Or is there yet more in store for the reader? Consider this: Parks' narrative has on several occasions explicitly described the initiations of the central character, Sa'am, who is revealed in Ádam Genisiš to be identical to Enki-Ea, Osiris, and other important figures. In his pursuit of information reflecting on the identity of the celestial perturber, Parks goes deeply, one might say lovingly, into ancient scriptures of several cultures that have always been with us, but that we now clearly see are also devoted to initiation. For example, there is the Egyptian Book of the Dead, containing instructions to the dead Osiris who with the aid of the initiating priestesses will undergo transformation into Horus, and rise like the Phoenix from the burning ashes.
Question: can one undergo initiation by reading about the information transmitted to the initiate in full ceremony?
One would think not; the initiation must be experienced; death or imminent death must be a part of the experience. The information alone is insufficient; it is not knowledge. Yet the information is essential.
Now consider the human race as a whole. In your opinion, with respect to the information written in these books by Anton Parks, would you say that the human race has been ignorant? I would, yes. Is the human race at this time facing the experience of death or imminent death?
An outrageous suggestion, perhaps. Perhaps with vital information about its past and about its true place in the cosmos, the human race gains the potential to move from the status of uninitiated to pre-initiated and then to the initiated state.
Parks provides passages from the Rig-Veda that clearly associate Agni with the the Egyptian Horus (Heru). Some notable points:
Born of two mothers... powerful and reasonable... for the sake of man and the worlds... reposes throughout nature... extracted by rubbing from the breast of his parents... first borne to the east and then to the west.
Rig-Veda, Hymn 12, by Angiras Hiranyastupa
When Agni wished to harness his chariot, his two mothers labored first by mutual efforts to give him a body... These two mothers who remain together hold equally in their breast the fruit who, faithfully conserved, born day and night, always young, always in movement, immortal across the human ages.
Rig-Veda, Hymn 8, by Dirghatamas
Where the father of Agni is "the master of the sacrifice", Osiris is himself the great sacrifice. The two mothers of Agni are comparable to those of Horus: two pieces of wood making the ritual fire. They represent night and dawn. Isis and Nephtys transform themselves symbolically into docking posts to guide the soul of Osiris so that he will not be lost in the void but will be able to raise himself and transmute himself into Ra'af (black sun or black celestial body) before reincarnating as Horus, the celestial son.
This ritual is accomplished in the Great Pyramid. As noted in Le Secret, the Egyptian term for pyramid is Mer. Please consult the Decoder for a full elaboration of this word.
Readers may recall that the Great Pyramid is symbolic of Isis. The tomb of Thutmosis III (Amduat, 5th Hour, Register 3, 374) leaves no doubt of this, because it assimilates the flesh of Isis to the primordial hill. The head of the goddess is clearly seen at the pinnacle.
The pyramid symbolizes Isis. At its eastern extremity (on the right) appear a serpent and a star, representing the Morning Star. The four seated divinities evoke the four aspects required for the transmutation of the dead king into the celestial Horus in the form of Seker/Sokaris (lower center, with two wings). Before the head of the serpent-star an inscription reads, "Living God. He goes and he returns. He opens (the door called) the slicer."
The Great Pyramid is the place where the "god" Osiris was conceived and resuscitated as Horus, the first divine king of Egypt. The body of Osiris, equipped for the great voyage, was placed in the sarcophagus in the chamber known as "the King's", while the two mothers, Isis and Nephtys, were stationed in the lower chamber ("queen's") to produce the son, the divine falcon.
In the ancient Egyptians' Book of the Dead this falcon ("of gold") is proclaimed to have the head of a Phoenix (because of its feathered crest of brilliant colors), which Parks shows is connected to another passage of the Rig-Veda (Hymn 10) concerning the birth of the royal infant Cumara, heir of the throne.
The deceased, assimilated to Horus, explains what he sees, what he lives. This passage has the sense of the Hymn 10 mentioned above.
I came today from the land of Ruty (the double lion); I left there to go to the dwelling place of Isis the divine. I have seen the secret mysteries, having been conducted to the hidden retreats, because they have made me see the birth of the great god; Horus has granted me his Bâ (soul) and I have seen what was there... I am the one who has been charged with bringing his thoughts to Osiris and to the Duat. It is I, the falcon who lives in the light, who is powerful thanks to his diadem, he who is powerful thanks to his radiance. I will cause him to go and to return, as far as the ends of heaven.
Parks provides many more examples from Egypt and India, tying together the Morning Star, falcon and phoenix, and the planet Venus as essential factors in rituals of resurrection.
This history brings to us precious mythological correspondences. Parashu-Râma, the Indian Venus, possessed a father considered as the sacrificial fire in the image of Osiris who is the grand sacrificed in Egypt. The Purânas indicate that the terrestrial father of Venus worked for humanity and that he was in relation with the priests and the master agriculturalists. Were these not the functions of Enki in Mesopotamia and of Osiris in Egypt? The Mahâbhârata indicates that Jamadani, the terrestrial father of Venus, was assassinated by a king and his son belonged to a warrior cast. We know that Osiris (Enki) was assassinated by Seth (Enlil) and his proud partners (the Anunna warrors). The murder of Enki does not appear to exist on the Mesopotamian tablets, because his assassination did not take place in (Sumer).
