The Awakening of the Phoenix
by Anton PARKS
May 2014 Note by Gerry Zeitlin
This page originally appeared on our website in 2009, consisting largely of an English-language translation of Anton Parks' preview introduction to his then-forthcoming book Le Réveil du Phénix.
Early in 2010, a deliberate and skillful manipulation of information resulted in the disruption of the deep collaboration that had existed between the Parks and Zeitlin couples. Books in process were totally revised and, when they were published, they were tragically ignored from this side for four long years.
Now in the spring of 2014, we are trying to repair the damage. Malou Zeitlin is gone and Gerry Zeitlin is dealing with life-threatening illnesses. Anton Parks and Gerry Zeitlin are doing our best to normalize, but Gerry has to go a long way just to cover the books that are now in print.
The page you are reading will undergo a rewrite but some elements reflecting the book that was never published will be retained as an epitaph to the kind of collaborative work we once had together... and perhaps will have again.
The Chronicles of the Gírkù ("The Chronicles of the holy sword") retraces the age-old combats that lead two beings issued of a single energy arising from Gagsisá-Eš (Sirius 3) [see discussion of Sky Orientation 4 under Worlds]: two sister or sister/brother souls, rebelling against a despotic authority that had held sway over a large part of our galaxy since time immemorial. Whatever were their different names throughout the thread of history and memories, it is an ancestral combat well underway before the first book of this series, over other incarnations. That is what is revealed, among other things, by The Awakening of the Phoenix.
The crystal Ugur (The GÍRKÙ). We had long planned the development of a 3-D graphic model of Ugur for this website and eventually for Parks' books. Due to disruptions, that development program was never completed. Visitors to this site and readers of Parks' books who would like to see such a model should make their wishes known to Parks who might be persuaded to pursue efforts here or with other agencies.
The Chronicles of the Gírkù draws a portrait of the gods of the Earth, giving them their true dimension. It is not a question of etheric or monolithic divinities, as some prefer to describe them, solely to reassure themselves and to give to the human genre an exceptional character. It is more a matter of individuals of flesh and blood, and moreover, humanoids. These were awesome predators, beached here at the time of an ancient war, who discovered that their royal Kingú creators had already appropriated this territory, long before. The conflict is partially exposed in the Babylonian creation text of approx. 1115 B.C., given the name Enûma Eliš by contemporaneous exegetes.
These warriors and colonizers dubbed Anunna(ki) calculated with a different notion of time from that of the human being -- looking forward many decades and centuries. Their methods and ways of conducting themselves over long periods of time testify to a quasi-immortality, not the extremely short existence of humans.
Their adversaries and galactic lookalikes who found refuge in Egypt and in its subterranean sanctuary named Gigal, conceived an astute codification of languages aimed at creating difficulties for the Annunaki with their goal of global domination over mankind. This codification, to a large extent described in the works of this series, requires an intelligence and an ultra-rapid manner of thinking not possessed by the human being.
The Awakening of the Phoenix begins where Ádam Genisiš brusquely culminates, just after the sudden disappearances of Mamítu-Nammu (Nut) and her son Sa'am-Enki-Asar (Osiris) at the time of the great battle of the Age of the Lion, almost 10,000 years ago. At this moment of our narrative, the combat conducted by the two sister souls who carried at that time the names of Aset (Isis) and Asar (Osiris), is newly troubled by the disappearance and the sorrowful mourning for one another.
The history reported by the Egyptian funerary texts and the local legends spread by the priests who did not wish news of the death of Asar (Osiris), and the true conditions of his disappearance to be known, were only pale reflections of the reality.
Symbol of Sirius
The Awakening of the Phoenix opens:
Setesh (Enlíl-Seth) is a mixed-blood artificially created through the genetic genius of Asar (Enki-Osiris) from his own genes, those of Mamítu-Nammu (Nut), and others derived from the Gina'abul race. Given that he possesses the same genetic material as his creator Enki-Osiris, namely that of his creator Mamítu-Nammu, Setesh passes both as his son and his brother. It is precisely this situation that is the origin of the conflicts that have opposed Enki-Asar (Osiris) and Enlíl-Setesh (Seth) on Earth.
After having shone brightly over unfathomable expanses of time at the heart of the divine assembly of Kalam (Sumer) in the role of grand Šàtam (territorial administrator), Setesh (Enlíl-Seth) little-by-little loses his prestige and the confidence of Atum-Râ (An). Setesh then makes use of all possible ruses to restore his previous popularity and renown. To this end, he engages in open war against Asar and assassinates him in order to obtain the lands and the throne of Egypt.
In his murderous folly that swept beyond all the frontiers of the terrestrial globe, Setesh caused the explosion of Mulge, the Black Star (today's asteroid belt). This in turn blew Mulge's ancient satellite into a completely unstable orbit -- one that perpetually menaced Earth throughout the narrative of The Awakening of the Phoenix.
The first disastrous passage of the bolide has overturned the Earth and caused a terrible deluge.
This fratricidal struggle that perpetuates itself on the Earth has the indulgence of Asar's creator, Atum-Râ (An), who saw in these conflicts the guarantee that he would not be made destitute by one of his sons, in particular the grand usurper of the throne of Egypt. After the death of his son Asar, he slithered to the head of the Assembly, claiming the power to guarantee a durable peace between the two consanguine adversaries, Sumer and Egypt.
A claim that he will never keep.
Aset (Isis) must take the country of Egypt and occupy the throne that is her due, but the authority of Atum-Râ (An) prevents her from fully exercising her power: the Queen must reign with her King, as in the mythical times when she had directed Egypt with her sister-soul Asar (Osiris). Even the protection and the support of her half-brother Râ could change nothing. She is a queen without real power over her country, but only on her subjects who live with her in the subterranean network, under the plateau of Giza.
Aset (Isis) possesses a highly developed intelligence. Very few are those who understand her, even among her own people. Faced with the unbearable disappearance of Asar and this geopolitical situation which removes from her once again all her legitimate rights, Aset will "thaw" the corpse of her spouse that had been ravaged by Setesh (Seth) and use his genetic code to reawaken her lover from the "land of the dead".
The struggle of Aset is that of a woman ready to raise mountains, more precisely to construct one in order to bring about the rebirth of Asar in her son Heru (Horus). Her plan is outrageous. Her fight to give life to her "inverted" double is as colossal as the Great Pyramid of Egypt, the matrix from which the prodigy will be effected.
It is in persevering closely with the counsel of the Abgal (Sirian) sages remaining on Earth that she will obtain the authorization to begin her construction that functions on the ancient knowledge of beings from Sirius. It is the intense struggle of a woman fatigued by the plots and destiny, a woman become goddess, determined to become mother to retrieve her lover and later unite with him in what will be called a shameful and incestuous union. Even the thinking of humans has no vocabulary for otherwise naming an exception like this one, simply a story tied to karmic bonds that surpass understanding.
Aset will then do everything possible to legitimate Heru's (Horus') access to the throne of Egypt. She wishes that the deaths of her mother Nut and her spouse be avenged by her prodigal son, and that she may finally live in peace.
Heru (Horus) is the future king whom the power in place, incarnated by Atum-Râ and his clergy, does not wish to recognize for fear of losing control over Egypt. The clergy knows perfectly well that he is the son of Osiris, but suppresses this information in order to permit Setesh (Seth) to legitimize his own access to the throne.
Likewise, the clergy with which Heru is in conflict refuses to admit that Heru could be the reincarnation of Asar, for the same reason.
Heru was engendered naturally, but by artificial insemination from the genes of Asar, Aset, and unknown Kingús. This makes him the equal of Râ and of the Nungal (followers of Râ), but also of the royal Kingú (enemies of the Anunnaki), of Nebet-Hut (Nephtys), and as well understood, of Setesh who himself possesses royal albino genes.
Aset, his mother, and later his spouse, controls his acts and gestures. She is his shadow and he the fighting arm of Egypt. In spite of his dissensions with Râ, Heru is going to have to do battle alongside him to repulse the enemies of Egypt; he is going to engage in a very long battle against Setesh and above all place himself behind the clergy who incarnate the executive power of the grand Atum-Râ (An).
Horus will equally do all possible to restore the image and the religion of his assassinated father and to make himself recognized as his legitimate son.
In this fashion, Heru pursues the destiny that the two celestial twins chose jointly for themselves: to combat the shadow that has so many times separated them. The Awakening of the Phoenix retraces this relentless struggle between the shadow and the light, in the name of Love and Life.

Résumés of Chronicles Volumes 1 and 2
I must excuse myself to my French-speaking readers. Whether on this Internet site [http://www.antonparks.com] or in interviews, I have several times announced different numbers of volumes that form The Chronicles of the Gírkù. The problem stems from The Awakening of the Phoenix, which would normally have had to cover several historical periods. I had planned to close this series with a third and final voluminous book.
Once I had begun drafting the series, it was difficult for me to evaluate with precision the number of pages that the ensemble was going to require. The numerous notes at the base of the pages and the included manuscripts required enormous space. Take for example the two dossiers of Awakening of the Phoenix: that on the birth of Horus is four times longer than foreseen; as to that on the Tree of Life and the one by Gerry Zeitlin... they were quite simply not envisioned initially...
At the time that I left Volume 2 and the personage of Sa'am, I was relieved to have accomplished this heavy task, but also worried about bringing to market a work that could have appeared "incomplete"... In effect, Ádam Genisiš ends brusquely with the instant disappearances of the two principal personages of the two first works. I could have pursued the editing of Ádam Genisiš and included what is found at the beginning of this Volume 3, but that would not have made any sense. It was equally important for me to keep the two manuscripts that end Volume 2 insofar as they offer information at one time capital and original. These two appendices equally address the setting of The Awakening of the Phoenix.
The Awakening of the Phoenix aims to be to some extent the hard kernel of the series. In order not to fail in my duty to faithfully retranscribe this complex history, I am resigned to considerably "amputate" this third work, retaining only the Egyptian period. In regard to the notes and above all the manuscripts that I have produced for this new work and that I intend to realize in the suite of volumes to follow, I can affirm that it was a good choice.
The Awakening of the Phoenix will be in spite of everything a bit thicker than Volume 2, Ádam Genisiš.
