Answers Long Misunderstood

Baffling

Third Secret of Fatima , Egypt, Rome, Mecca and Medina’s Destruction

 

Most of the people who have heard of Locked Gates, The Riddle Lord’s Secrets   will discount it’s accuracy. The Common Folk that believe in fairytale will say “That is not what those stories mean.” And those who think those stories were only myths to control the Common Folk will say. “Those Ancient Stories were just Fairytales: nothing more.” However, I have taken this section of Locked Gates, The Riddle Lord’s Secrets  as a test for my accuracy. Knowing full well that I will be treated as a Cassandra, Schliemann, Noah, Xenophon, and many others who were never believed by their Enemies or the Common Folk, strangely that rejection did not prove those Visionaries wrong. Sadly, when this last section comes to pass, it will too late for millions of people to be saved. Their Future safety is now in your hands.

Third Secret of Fatima

Made public by Vatican

April 21 2010

fatima

We have traveled back in time to unwind riddles or parables of the Past. However, we are about to step into the Future. Parables of things that lay in the future are called “Prophecies.” The problem with these prophecies is that they can come true because “Certain People” want to have these prophecies come true, Fanatical people who are trying to make the Common Folk believe that God is on the side of these same Fanatical people. Two such men are Mr. Ahmadinejad of Iran and the late Ben Laden of Arabia, and there are many others (some of these Fanatics are Christian and others are Jews, however, most are not Believers but Atheist.) Men who believe that through total chaos, disorder, and confusion, a world leader of “Their mind set” will come, a –Man– that will bring peace, because of this chaos. A PEACE that those fanatical people could help maintain after this “Man of Peace” takes control. This concept is similar to what most “so called Christians” think will happen before the return of Christ. This apocalyptic “Mind Set” is a recipe for death and mayhem.

New Crusade Involving Pope .

Last update – 22:19 20/03/2008

Bin Laden tape By the Associated Press1

“A voice believed to be Bin Laden’s described

The attacks of the Europeans on women and children,” but said

These “paled [in comparison] when you went overboard in your unbelief and freed yourselves of the etiquettes of dispute and fighting

and went to the extent of publishing these insulting drawings, this is the greatest misfortune and the most dangerous.’”

Bin Laden went on to describe the “New Crusade against Islam, in which the Pope has played a large and lengthy Role, and warned the Europeans that a reaction would come.

“The response will be what you see and not what you hear and let our mothers bereave us

if we do not make victorious our messenger of God,” he said, without specifying what action would be taken

 

Harold Sun

Update February 2008 2

These accusations are totally unfounded,”

said Vatican spokesman Rev. Federico Lombardi.

“But they are not surprising. It is natural to think that he (BinLaden)

would lump the Vatican and the pope together with all his perceived enemies.”

This threat is related to a two part prophecy of Islam, which has been partly fulfilled. A prophecy predicting the fall of the two capitals of Christendom: that of Constantinople and of Rome. As the Fatimites centuries ago organizers the War Conference trying to decide where to attack first, this quote was given:

Quran, 47:18

Are they waiting for anything except the Hour to come to them suddenly?

But its Signs have already come!”

As one of these signs, Imam Ahmad reports in his Musnad that Abdullah bin Amr bin Al-’As (ra) mentioned:

Whilst we were around the Prophet (saw) writing he was asked,

‘Which of the two cities will be opened first, Constantinople or Rome?‘ He (Muhammad) answered,

‘The city of Heraclius, Constantinople will be opened first!’” 

Half of that prophecy was completed when Heraclius, the city of Constantine, Constantinople; fell into the hands of the Ottoman Turks on Tuesday, 29 of May, 1453 of the Christian era. However, the second part of that prophecy is yet to be fulfilled: “the fall of Rome.” One would think: that the followers of Islam will do the attack on Rome. But quite the opposite is the case. There are “Others” that want to change the Order of the World through Chaos. However, it will be ISLAM, WHICH WILL get the blame for the destruction of Rome, and not the True Perpetrators. Which the Fanatics’ think are their Allies. Rome is to be destroyed because that city is considered to be the Seat of Christianity. From these Fanatics’ prospective, their false leaders demand a violent path to conquer World of the Unbelievers. This must be accomplished to prepare the world to be totally under those Fanatical People who hope to control through this World Leader. This mantra is being “spoon fed” to the world, making the Common Folk of the world to automatically believe that Islam is to blame for this chaos. This destruction of Rome will quickly get out of hand and millions will die and then a World Leader (“The False Imam” or “Replacement-Christ”) will mediate this time of chaos into a temporary peace, and Jerusalem will quickly become “The Control Center” of all three monotheistic religions.

 

Roman Catholic Prophecy   Mirror Image

To the Islamic Prophecy

.

This prophecy also speaks of the destruction of Rome and this Secret is known to just a few Un-Common men. The prophecy is called the Final Secret of Fatima; and it also deals with the destruction of Rome and a Flood. There is a solid link between the two prophecies; the link is in the name “Fatima” to the Roman Catholic’s, the city Fatima of Portugal, where between May 13 and October 13, 1917 the Lady of Fatima was to have been manifested to three children: Lucia dos Santos, Francisco, and Jacints Marto. This “Lady?” told those children of future events. However, Fatima to the Shiite Muslim is the name of the daughter of the Prophet Mohammad. The city Fatima was named after the Most Holy Lady in the Islamic faith “Fatima”, as tribute to Mohammad’s daughter. That name of the city was never changed. An important fact, since Mohammad had no son, therefore, there was no male heir to pass down the leadership role of Islam to. Therefore, the earthly role of the Imam was passed down through Fatima’s son, HUSSAIN. The Islamic sects of the “Shiite or “Fatimites” have their origins from the daughter of Mohammad, Fatima. The New World Leader is said to be a decedent of or to come after (Fatima,) a violent path of chaos to conquer the World of Unbelievers. After which “This New World leader” will take command of the world’s stage. The Islamic Prophecy states “Mecca3 will be destroyed. This would happen if Rome was destroyed.

The final battle will be waged by Muslim faithful coming on the backs of horses… carrying black banners. They will stand on the east side of the Jordan River and will wage war that the earth has never seen before. The true Messiah who is the Islamic Mahdi… will defeat Europe… will lead this army of Seljuks, He will preside over the world from Jerusalem because Mecca would have been destroyed…” (Yawm Al-Ghabab, Safar Alhwaly).

 

 

Mohammed

Sunan Abu Dawud

Book 37 number 4281

“The Prophet said: “The flourishing state of Jerusalem will be when Yathrib (Medina) is in ruins,

the ruined state of Yathrib (Medina) will be when the great war comes,

the outbreak of the great war will be at the conquest…

This is as true as you are here or as you are sitting”; meaning, Mu’adh ibn Jabal, the narrator of: the book

Daniel 9:26

Quoted in the Fatima Document

“And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off,

but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city (Rome)

and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood,

Medina and many other cities including Cairo, cities that are thought to harbor ill feeling against the Jew will be destroyed. Jerusalem will then become “The Control Center”. This New World Leader and The Dark Pope of Christendom will meet there in Jerusalem and sign a peace pact that has long been searched for, which will bring peace to Palestine and the Mid-East that has long been searched for.

However, the Jews have their own Prophecy concerning how to deal with this threat from these Fanatics. The Jews will not take any chances after that attack on Rome. The War Plans have been made for the destruction of the Aswan Dam and the draining of Lake Nasser. “The LORD shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea.”4 (Also known as Lake Nasser)

 

Isaiah 115

10 there shall be a root of Jesse, (JESUS) which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek (NOT Many JEWS)

11 the second time to recover the remnant of his people, (BIRTH OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL in 1948)

12. Assemble the outcasts of Israel (Which has been happening since 1948)

13 Ephraim shall not envy Judah, (The Christian nations show kindness to the Jews)

14 But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines (War Ships of air and sea of the Jews):

they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon (The  people of the Mid-East) shall obey them.

When Will this Flood Happen?

15 And the LORD shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian Sea. (The draining Lake Nasser)

6

Most biblical scholars are quite dogmatic in their studies of this text, found in the eleventh chapter of Isaiah relying on other scholars from the Past to color their interpretation of the text; rejecting the sudden appearance of a huge lake on the Aswan’s construction in the 1960’s. Most biblical scholars and are not aware of the huge lake called Nasser, Isaiah called “the Egyptian Sea”: These scholars call a tiny lake the Sea of Galilee and cannot see Lake Nasser as the Sea of Egypt. Please look at these Google Maps to give a perspective as to how big this Second Sea of Egypt (Lake Nasser)is and the destructive power that is held behind the Aswan Dam.7 That lake is over 10 miles wide in places, hundreds of miles long and is up to three hundred sixty four feet deep.

 123 jpg aswan sat

That dam is going to be destroyed. Most of Egypt’s population is in that narrow Nile River Valley downstream from Aswan. DO YOU UNDERSTAND? When the Isis Dam of Egypt was destroyed in the year 2141 before the Christian era, a flood took Egypt hundreds of years to recover from that disaster, a flood that will soon happen again, the first destruction of a dam which gave Egypt its name Aigu-ptis.8 (The sea that fled away)

Isaiah11:16 And there shall be a highway for the remnant of his people, 9

Millions of refugees will be on the move throughout the Middle East and southern Europe after that destruction because the flood

and the destruction of so many Holy Cities/sites in response to the destruction of Rome.

Isaiah 51:9-10,

Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab,10 The Wall is Also Known as the Aswan Dam) and wounded the dragon? 11 (The waters of Lake Nasser)

10 dried the sea, the waters of the great deep; (Lake Nasser) a way for the ransomed to pass over?

Psalms 89:10

10 Thou hast broken Rahab (The Wall Aka Aswan) in pieces, as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm.

Ezekiel 29:2-12 2

Son of man set thy face against Pharaoh King of Egypt,

3 My (GOD’S) river is mine own, and I have made it for myself.

4 But I will put hooks in thy jaws, and I will cause the fish of thy rivers to stick unto thy scales,

5 And I will leave thee thrown into the wilderness, (The waters of lake Nasser drained) thee and all the fish of thy rivers: thou shalt fall upon the open fields; thou shalt not be brought together, nor gathered (After the dam bursts)

6 And all the inhabitants of Egypt shall know that I am the LORD,

8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring a sword upon thee, and cut off man and beast out of thee.

 

When that huge Aswan dam is breached, a dam that is three hundred sixty four feet high, eleven thousand eight hundred and eight feet wide and holds back 125,600,000 cubic acre-feet of water what will be left of Egypt?

12

Ezekiel 29:9 And the land of Egypt shall be desolate and waste;

Total destruction of Egypt will be complete as the waters of Aswan pass down that valley like a tsunami.

And they shall know that I am the LORD: because he (the Egyptians) hath said, The River is mine, and I have made it.

The Egyptians now control the River Nile by means of the Aswan Dam and Lake Nasser.

10 Behold, therefore I (GOD) am against thee (Egypt), and against thy rivers, and I will make the land of Egypt utterly waste

11 No foot of man shall pass through it, nor shall foot of beast pass through it, neither shall it be inhabited forty years.

12 And I will make the land of Egypt desolate in the midst of the countries that are desolate, and her cities among

the cities that are laid wastes shall be desolate forty years:

Cities like Cairo, Rome, Mecca, and Medina.

And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will disperse them through the countries.

 

Will you be caught unaware when this destruction occurs? Will you then believe only after the destruction of Egypt that there is a God who has been involved with mankind since mankind’s creation, a God that has kept His word accurate for thousands of years and left his story in the stars, a God that has given you warning of the consequences of rebellion against His guidance?

Howard West will reveal the Riddle Lords’ additional concepts hidden in their riddles, ancient wisdom and technologies, such as those found The city of the Horizon of Aten, a city which contained a technology of ancient Egypt that was so Top-Secret that the priesthood of Amun of during the reigns of the Pharaohs Tutankhamen and Horemheb, dismantled that city piece by piece,


Mirror Mirror, Locked Gates, The Riddle Lord’s Secrets by Howard West Copyright 2011

cover 4

History, love stories and fairy-tales of wicked queens repeat themselves though most of us are bound to miss the point every time. Take for example the fall of Troy: a good mix of love stories, history and a wicked queen. For centuries Troy was thought to be a fictional kingdom, notwithstanding, Heinrich Schliemann, a self-educated German businessman read Homer and was convinced of the fundamental truth found in Homer’s story riddles of c. 800 years before the Christian era. Then in 1870, about twenty seven centuries after Homer’s death, Heinrich began to excavate near the village of Hissarlik in Asia Minor (Turkey)1 at which time Schliemann was under the same curse of disbelief that Cassandra had been under. Even so, Heinrich was vindicated, when he found architectural remains at his site at the village of Hissarlik, this evidence was in superposed layers and a wealth of artifacts were uncovered, objects made of stone, copper, silver, and gold. This discovery quickly forced the Gatekeepers of knowledge to revise their conclusion about the Heroic Age. Schliemann named the site The City Priam2 named for Homer’s, King of Troy. After Schliemann’s death, Wilhelm Dorpfeld continued Schliemann’s work and between 1893 and 1894 found “The Sixth Settlement.” This was contemporary with the “Mycenae” epoch of early Greece and was in turn called “Troy.”

The Greek Playwright, Aeschylus also wrote an account of the fall of Troy and of two adulterous women3. First a good-looking woman named Helen, the wife of Menelmaus, King of Sparta. Helen4 had gotten the Ancient world into a twist more than three thousand years ago, when she ran off with Cassandra’s brother to Troy. This caused Agamemnon, the King’s brother and the Greek army, to go to Troy to bring Helen back to Mycenae. Even as the siege ensued, a second woman was waiting in her palace, at Mycenae for word of the battle. This wicked queen’s name was Clytemnestra5, sister in-law to Helen and the woman who would later kill our poor little Cassandra. Clytemnestra was the unfaithful wife of Agamemnon the Commander of the Greek Forces. Agamemnon had aggravated the problems with both Troy and his wife by stealing Chryemneis, the daughter of one of the priests of Troy. Back in Mycenae, Clytemnestra was more than four hundred and fifty miles from Troy by land and two hundred and fifty miles by a land-sea route. As Clytemnestra paced back and forth, she wondered how long must she wait for news of the war, trying to make sure that her husband, Agamemnon did not come home unexpectedly from the War and find her in bed with her new lover.

If Caesar Augustus’ (born 27 years before the Christian era and died in the year 14 CE) Postal System6 had been available to Clytemnestra, those postal riders would have taken four and a half days to make the trip from Troy, with an average speed of one hundred miles per day. If William F. “Buffalo Bill “ Cody’ and his co-riders of the Pony Express7 were doing the delivery, the trip would have taken three days, based on the best time from St. Joseph to Sacramento8. The carrier pigeon message system9 developed by the Arabs sometime between the seventh and the ninth century of the Christian era, would have taken two days if the little pigeon came back at all. The square sailed ships of the time just would not meet the new racing yacht specifications of today, and if the winds were contrary the Greek square sailed ships could have taken days and days and if Odyssey was in charge years,

The funny thing is that Aeschylus, the Greek dramatist10: said that Clytemnestra knew of the fall of Troy that day. But how could she know? Did space aliens tell her? NO! Was Clytemnestra a clairvoyant?11 NO! Did she have an out of body experience then? NO! Catoptromance12 (Magic Mirrors) Now you’re getting close. But where is the thread that will start to unravel this Knot? Xenophon (434-355 years before the Christian era13) the ancient Greek war hero and historian answers that question in his history of ancient Greece called Hellenica. Nevertheless, Xenophon’s words like Cassandras’ words have been rejected by the Gatekeepers of knowledge. Even so, Hellenica contains the phrase to:

Signal with a Shield”

8 jpg signal with shield 2

This refers to reflecting sunlight with a mirrored shield. Those mirrors were called aspis14 the Ancient Greek word for snakes or mirrored shields. The messages that were sent by these ancient heliographs were called “aspasmos15 to “handle the shield.” Yes, they were what you would call Magic Mirrors the same kind that gave Clytemnestra the extra time needed to make sure she did not get caught with her new lover and what allowed Snow White’s wicked step mother to find The Fairest of them all.

Now why are those aspis or heliographs so important: because those Magic Mirrors gave the ancient world of the Eastern Mediterranean a system of communication equal to that of the late 19th to early 20th centuries. Think about that concept because the Gatekeepers of knowledge are blissfully unaware of that fact that thousands of years ago the cultures of the Middle East had almost instant communication between cities hundreds of miles apart. This is something that modern “Man” has only had for about one hundred and fifty years.

Aeschylus speaks of a system of dozens of beacons lights on mountaintops and watchtowers from Troy to Mycenae and Clytemnestra’s mansion. This indicates a network of beacons running at light speed more than three thousand years ago: though the Greek system was not the first of its kind. Such a system of this kind would not be instantly useable. The construction of such, a system would take time, to build watchtowers and climb mountains to find line of sight locations and a code system would also have to be developed. If this story has a hint of truth, there would have to be some remnants of that type of network, and of the code system that was used. Sorry to say, most of the skeptics will say:

fine, they were some campfires on the hills” or “It was a short-lived or one time fluke of history” or “I never heard of any such system used consistently at that time.”

 

9 jpg moon mirror

Not only is there evidence of this type of heliographic system throughout history, NASA uses that same basic system today. A two-way communication system working between the Earth and the Moon, the system has a light source on Earth and a mirrored device on the Moon, a beam of light with a series of blinks that have a time sequence is sent to the Moon and light is reflected back to Earth.16

Ringed by footprints, sitting in the moon dust, lies a 2-foot wide panel studded with 100 (magic) Mirrors pointing at Earth. It is the “lunar laser ranging retro reflector array” that Apollo 11 Astronaut Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong put there on July 21, 1969, about an hour before the end of their final moonwalk…” and it’s the only Apollo science experiment still running”17

The university of Maryland physics professor Carroll Alley was the project’s principal investigator during the Apollo years, and he follows its progress today.

Using these mirrors,” explains Alley, “we can ‘ping’ the moon with laser pulses and measure the Earth-moon distance very precisely. This is a wonderful way to learn about the moon’s orbit and to test theories of gravity.”18

Flashes of light from the Past are the current “craze” in computing and fiber optic communication. Light flowing through tiny silken threads of glass -short little blinks of light– traveling over hundreds of miles of cable from computer to computer. The State of the Art is light transmission of data, real High Tech 21th century science: Guess what? Most of you send hundreds of “LIGHT” speed messages every year: to thousands of people you do not even know, with just a little stick and a tap of your foot. You do this when you drive a car. A series of blinks tells folks that you are turning, or a longer dash says you are slowing down or stopping. Not so high tech now, you use blinks of light every day without thinking. You automatically know what those blinks mean and adjust your speed or location without even thinking. Paul Revere used blinks of lights in a church steeple in the American Revolutionary War. For a secure short range means of communication, The United States Navy still uses a Blinker or Flasher Light System to send messages from “ship to ship” or “ship to shore.” The system consists of a hooded light and a Venetian blind shutter19: and you thought that the Venetian’s invented that type of light baffle to keep the light out of your eyes: No. Those louvers were developed to keep the light (message) from the eyes of their enemy.

Not everyone has rejected Xenophon’s evidence of the viability of the Aspis or Bright Shields communications. William Von Graysand and Johann Gass developed a Bright Shield system in Europe20. Sadly Von Graysand and Gass did not possess an adequate code system. However, the Celts in Ireland and Wales were using a flasher code called Ogham with great success a few centuries before Von Graysand and Gass system was developed, but Von Graysand and Gass were not as successful as those who were able to overcome the problems in the desert lands, Even so, the Russians of the 19th century used a flasher system. Nicholas I (1796-1855 of the Christian era) a Tsar of Russia (1825-1855)21 governed Russia with an iron hand and a centralized administration, a good communication system was needed. Old Nick set up a beacon light system with a network of more than two hundred and twenty repeater stations that stretched from the frontier of Austria to St. Petersburg. The government was the primary user of this system; even so, that communication system22 became a boon to the Merchants between both points.

10 jpg US army heliograph black

In the American southwest during the 1870s and 1880s of the Christian era the Apache Indians gave23 the United States government a run for its money, when the Apache cut telegraph wires and disrupted that communication system. The Apache also had a superior communication system of their own using Capornancy (smoke signals). Nevertheless, the US army was given a new Catoptromance invention of less than thirty years, a toy really: a lady’s pocket mirror. Justus Von Liebig had just developed the process of silver on glass in the year 1853. Before that, most mirrors were made of metal although the most effective and easiest to build was a copper plate that was coated with an oily liquid metal: quicksilver. The mercury would act just like oil in a fry pan and leave a thin even finish with the excess easily wiped off, the same process that the Alchemist used in their trick of turning a copper coin silver with a little mercury. Those magic mercury mirrors are still being used today by astronomers. Some of the world’s most powerful telescopes have liquid metal surfaces, magic mirrors that allow those astronomers to travel through time millions of years into the past without leaving their offices.24

To give a perspective to how these Magic Mirrors, heliographs, or aspis worked in the distant past, we need only to go to America’s recent past of its Wild, Wild West, when telegraph lines were easily cut. General Nelson A. Miles25 turned the tables on the Apaches with steam trains, pack mules, Cyrsteloge, (telescopes) and Catoptromance (the heliograph system developed by Gauss 26). The telescopes gave the Army the ability to know the future or at least to see that future coming. The pack mules gave the troops an endless supply of food and ammunition. The heliograph was a giant step beyond the simple mirror Catoptromance system however, with this system the troops on the move, a single mirror system could not always be seen if the Sun was at the wrong angle.

twin heliograph

Sir Henry Mance’s heliographic system added a second mirror; each of the two mirrors could be tilted or rotated. This movement allowed the lower mirror to be turned and tilted to catch the sun at the best angle and reflect that light to the top mirror. The upper mirror could then be turned to allow it to send the light to the location of the troops. The heliograph’s mirror had a telegraph type key to tip the mirror or in some cases shutters or lovers were used to allow the Magic Mirror to blink the message.

General Nelson A. Miles described the historic surrender of Geronimo and the Magic Mirror connection is as follow:

I (General Miles) told him (Geronimo) that we had the use of steam and could move with great rapidity. That we also had the telegraph and the heliostat (heliograph), both superior to any of their methods of communication

I (General Miles) said to (Geronimo) ‘We can watch your movements and send messages over the tops of the mountains in the small part of a day that would take a mounted man on a swift pony twenty days to travel” (Geronimo) told me he had observed these flashes of light upon the mountain heights and believed them to be spirits.”

For a demonstration a heilographic message was sent to inquirer of Geronimo’s brother at Fort Bowie. This is the response of Geronimo on the receipt of the return message as told by Miles.

This struck the savage with awe, and evidently made a strong impression upon him. I (General Miles) noticed that he (Geronimo) said something to one of his warriors close by him, at which the warrior quietly turned on his heel, and walked a short distance where his pony was lariated, jumped on his back and rode rapidly back in the direction of the mountains from which Geronimo had come.”

Miles asked what Geronimo had said.

The interpreter replied: “He (Geronimo) told him to go tell Natchez that there was a power here which he (Geronimo) could not understand: and to come in, and come quick.”

The heliograph had performed its magical God like function as it had in the centuries past and in a few hours Natchez came down from the mountain.

The western states of Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada, used a heliographic network of sentinels out posts in the high desert for a time in the late 19th century and the British also used a heliographic system in southern Africa and in the Sub Continent in the same era. The heliograph also provided the mobile communication element in the British service which was devised by Sir Henry Mance at Bombay in 1869. The system would be transported to high ground location on horseback. The location usually was on a high open mountaintop that was clear on all sides. This heliographic system was the forerunner of our modern satellite surveillance systems. This communication system was a huge leap forward in technology, or was it backwards?

Archimedes’ Mentor from Locked Gates, The Riddle Lord’s Secrets by Howard West Copyright 2011

1   Archimedes

More than fifty years ago in my “Introduction to Greek Literature” class, I learned of Archimedes and his “Bath Tub Revelation“. Even so, in the decades since I have found that our dear little Archimedes was far wiser that the image of a little old man that ran through the streets of the capital city Syracuse, Sicily: naked and screaming. Archimedes was born 287 years before the Christian era begun in Syracuse, educated in Alexandra, Egypt and his death was recorded at the fall of Syracuse. Plutarch writes in his work on “Marcellus”: the Roman commander, about how Archimedes’ engines of war were used against the Romans in the siege of 212 years before the Christian era. Archimedes is said to have, “single handedly defended the city” by constructing what are now called solar furnaces, or Aten orb as that system was known in Karnack, Egypt. Mirrors that were to focus the Sun’s light by more than one thousand fold onto Roman ships.

Other engines of war used in that defense were based on Hercules’ Birds of Styphalian story. Archimedes used noise makers against the land forces, “immense masses of stones that came down with incredible noise and violence: against which no man could stand:” breaking the Roman army’s ranks, just as Hercules used “noise makers” to flush the Birds of Styphalian.

When you look up Archimedes word of praise that he screamed in a Greek lexicon? Eureka starts with the Greek letter Epsilon: which means:“to cover 1in a lion2and as often as not Epsilon is pronounced as an “H” sound, as in Helen3 and eureka would be pronounced as “heureca,” linking that word to the name Heurcules4. The Greek prefix and root word heur-cole that refers to. The tool or “The Splendid Gift”or inherent power linked to Hercules. A man that wore a suit of armor made of lion skin.

Hercules was a man with the right tool for each job. That is why Archimedes loved his Mentor, Hercules so much, and why Archimedes was known for discovering so many of the right tools based on the story riddles of Hercules. Could have our dear little Archimedes have written part of his own biography using the pen name Heuracleides?5 A name that means, a Son of Heurcules, but what else would you call a man like Archimedes that could tow a loaded ship on land as easily as he could on water, with Hercules’ rope of the Cretan Bull story and a few pulleys. A man that held the Roman Navy and then Army at bay with a few blinks of mercury clad copper magic mirrors and a few of Hercules’ noise makers.

The story riddles of Hercules lead Archimedes to become the father of “Experiential Science and Engineering”: Heuristic6. Sadly the children of the 21st century of the Christian era think Hercules was a super hero like Super Man: not a man that used his intellectual skills to multiply his strength or advantage. All the same, that is the point of story riddles. The plot of the story is not the Wisdom of the Riddle.

Hercules origins are not found in Greece, but in the night skies of Egypt where he is called Bau, where he is still in battle with the dreaded snake Draco.

Surprisingly, even in the later versions of these Herculean stories you do not find a man of super human strength but a man of great wisdom and wisdom is more powerful that brute force. One of the best-known Herculean stories is, The Stuck Cart. A man had mired his cart and was unable to free his vehicle. So on the cart seat, the driver was in fervent prayer to the pantheon of the Greek gods and goddesses asking for them to free his cart. Hercules hears the man’s prayer for help; however, his response is not of a godlike benefactor, but as an exasperated father speaking to a dim-witted son.

The gods help them that help themselves.”

Then Hercules shows the driver how to multiply his own strength using levers, in so doing frees the cart. The Wisdom of this story riddle is not that prayers work: even though the driver’s prayer did work. And it was not that Hercules got the cart unstuck, which he did. The wisdom of the riddle is the lesson of fulcrums and levers. Even so, who got the credit for discovering “The Law of Levers,” Archimedes and not Hercules. Each of Hercules’ Labors held great wisdom that was camouflaged in what seems to be a fairytale, Labors that were achieved by intellectual and engineering principles. When Hercules tries in his own strength, he fails. That is the wisdom of the Hercules story riddles, “Use your head not your back,”

When Hercules cleansed King Augeas’ Ox Stable that had not been cleaned for three decades: was the cleaning of the King’s stable done by Hercules’ ability to shovel “Bull Shit” that got the job done?

No! It was hydrodynamics principles. Hercules used two dams to change the course of two rivers to flow through the stable to cleanse it’s of the massive amounts of Ox Dung. That process is used in gold mining and is known as Hydraulic Mining. And who got the credit for that field of scientific endeavor of hydrodynamics? Archimedes has been given the title of the Father of that field of scientific research.

Hercules had another problem: there was a Lion running around that had a hide that was impenetrable. That made the Nemean lion “un-defeat-able.” So how could our Hero prevail against such a beast? In many versions of this story our Hero was swallowed whole, in order that, Hercules could kill the beast from the inside by choking the beast. After the battle with that lion, our Hero fashioned himself a suit of armor, which takes us back to the Greek letter Epsilon, to be clothed with the lion. That is right Hercules got a Greek letter named after one of his Labors. Eight hundred years before the birth of Archimedes, what army used that Herculean concept from that story riddle to defeat a city that had impenetrable walls? –BINGOThe Greek army that was encamped around the City of Troy, with its impenetrable walls, though it took them a while to remember. Eventually, someone must have remembered that old Herculean Riddle. So they loaded up some men in a big Wooden Horse and left them to be swallowed by the Gates of Troy with its “Impenetrable walls.” Well we have come full circle back to the City of Troy and Cassandra. Not to worry we will get back to our Old Friends: Archimedes and Hercules later: but we will have to untie some other “Knots” first.

Three thousand years ago on the sunny shore of the Eastern Mediterranean, along the Aegean Sea, lived a priestess named Cassandra, a young “Paul Revere” who was telling the people of Troy that:

The Greeks are coming and the Wooden Horse they left is a trick to allow them to breach our impenetrable walls.”

The Greek Army was using a tactic against the Trojan people that was a hallmark of Middle Eastern thought, The Riddle Concept: the misleading of ones Enemies and the Common Folk. Sadly, even though Cassandra had been given a great Gift, the uncanny ability to unravel riddles, with that Gift came a Cruel Curse. The curse that no one ever believed her, because of that disbelief, the citizens of Troy were deceived into believing a lie, a lie that would cost them their City. Consequently, as the Orators of Troy (also known as Gatekeepers) brought through the gates of Troy the large Wooden Horse, our Visionary, poor little Cassandra was being ridiculed to shame, and told:

Shut up and go home Cassandra or something ‘Bad’ might happen to you” 1

Today if our Gatekeepers of knowledge saw someone like Cassandra who was so far out of touch with those skeptics ’ concept of Truth: The diagnosis would be, “She is just part of a Lunatic Fringe .” Our modern Gatekeepers of knowledge, therefore, would feel justified in dismissing our poor little Cassandra and her “Statements of Truth” in a similar situation.

Deception through camouflage as in the Wooden Horse that the Greeks used was the “Common Trick” in Eastern Mediterranean Mythology. Within their story form riddles were hidden answers to a great number of the most puzzling aspects of their History. Answers locked away, woven into their religions, myths, and legends. The Semitic people described this concept of dissimulation, as a “Khood2 which implied a knot or a snarl of silk thread; or the word “chiydah”:3 a riddle. The complementary word was “mashah, 4 the unwinding of a silk worm cocoon, and mashal a story form riddle. However, to manufacture a silk piece of cloth you must first have thread. Therefore, you must find the end of the silk worm’s last strand that he had spun around himself. Then carefully unravel that last strand as the cocoon sits floating in water. Then hundreds of strands per-inch were used in the manufacture of silk cloth. A process that is far more time consuming than the production of felt cloth; where you smash short unsorted fibers together to produce, a cloth for the Common Folk. The genesis of this process of silk production dates back thousands of years ago to Egypt. Though the Art was lost in antiquity, nevertheless, traces of that production can be seen in the language of the Semitic people. One of the most famous of the Hebrew leaders was a man named, Moses5 and that name is derived from that same Hebrew root word as “mashah”  6 and he too was drawn up from the water of the Nile in a Cocoon of Bulrushes. The title Messiah, , LORD of the Riddle, The Spinner of mashals, (Zader Yiger Mantchih:“The Silken Man”7,) also comes from that same Semitic root word “Mash”, however, Messiah ends with the “Sacred Name” Jah or Iah8, LORD: not “ich”, Union.)

The synonym for this Semitic concept of the mashal in the ancient Greek secular world was derived from its root words of para,9 “be close to or run alongside” and bolo10 “to be thrown off or redirected.” There are many words that have those root words, and most of which still hold true to the basic meaning of the Greek root words such as: parallel, paralegal, paraboloid, and parabolic. Even so, for some strange reason the Religious Crowd change the meaning of parable to mean, “An illustration given to make a concept clear for the Common folk.” Though, the “Book” that they say confirms this concept says just the opposite:

Isaiah 13:13

From Qumran Cave One11

The reason that I speak to them in Parables12 (mashal Story riddles) is that seeing they will not perceive; and hearing they will not understand.

Solomon said: in Proverbs 1:5-613

The Wise will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding Shall attain unto wise counsel; so he can understand (mashal)14 story riddles and their interpretation of the words of the wise, And their (chiydah15) Dark Sayings

The Book of Secrets16

From Qumran Cave Four

4Q300 F1 Col 2

Consider, those teachers of error: that say, ‘The story riddles (mashal) declares themselves that the (mashal) riddles is plain to see even before the Wise speaks…“

Proud in your foolishness teachers of error, for the vision is sealed up from you, and you have not properly understood the eternal mysteries and you have not become wise in understanding but foolish for you have not properly understood the origin of Wisdom; but if you should unseal the vision. The story riddles (mashal) is foolishness in all your wisdom.”

4Q301 F117

I shall speak out freely, and I shall express my various sayings among you for those who would understand story riddles (mashal) the dark hidden secrets (chiydah18) and that they propose and those who would penetrate the origins of knowledge, along with those who hold fast to the wonderful mysteries, hidden from those who walk in simplicity as well as those who are devious in every activity of the deeds of humanity. Hidden from those with stiff necks, and hard heads, and all the mass of the Common Folk.

The Egyptian Het Benben19

They see Ra (The light of sun) with their eyes and enter in his secret images. I protect my hidden things which are in Het Benben (house of the Renaissance)

The Story Riddle were used as a system to keep the knowledge of the Riddle Lords secrets from their Enemies and the Common Folk: though retrievable by the diligent. This system has worked well, almost too well. The answers to those Eastern Mediterranean cultures most baffling secrets, have been passed on from one generation to the next generation camouflaged within the essence of these riddles. Answers hidden, unchanged, and locked in riddles inside myths and legends of sex, violence, gods and goddesses and the super natural. This premise of the unwinding of threads to guide us through the maze of ignorance to the light of wisdom is a concept that was taught in the Greek story of the hero of the virgins of Athens. Theseus went to the labyrinth of Minotaur20 to take those young people’s place in darkness, and to do battle with that half-man-beast. Theseus knew he had no hope of escaping the Labyrinth, even if he defeated Minotaur. Luckily, Theseus had an admirer, the King’s daughter Ariadne; this young woman gave Theseus the key to unlock the riddle of the Labyrinth a simple ball of thread, Thread that was able to lead Theseus out of the maze into the light of day.

So why is this Wisdom locked away in these ancient story riddles so important that we must unwind these silk threads or riddles? Because they contain answers hidden in “Dark Sayings” (chiydah) that even the most educated of the 21th century of the Christian era have never been aware of; Dark Sayings that unlocks the most puzzling aspects of the Eastern Mediterranean culture. Alchemy is a case in point.

The Alchemists, who had learned the trick of turning Base Metals silver, loved this Game of Camouflage. The key to Alchemists silver and Gold was the element mercury also known as quicksilver. This liquid metal was known in Time’s Past as an “Anointing Oil.” The eternal question has been, “How do you turn a clean Base Metal coin: silver and then golden?” This is a well-known process that has been used in refining gold for thousands of years; yet, the truth of the Magic of Alchemy has eluded the Common Folk. All that is needed is a drop of quicksilver that was rubbed into the coin in so doing the mercury quickly spreads, turning the coin silver. The mercury would then spread out on the coin like oil on water. The coin then has a thin silver mirror finish. If you scratch the coin the mercury instantly fills the scratch, so the coin seems to be solid silver, therefore, a copper penny would seem to be a silver dime. Here in the “States” our Government has learned the Alchemist trick: our coins have a copper core and a bright silvery, finish, though not with mercury. Sadly the Common Folk here in the States value those coins as if they were solid silver. Our government has learned the value of the Alchemist Silver coin and the Common Folk have not.

To turn the Alchemist silver coin to a golden one is almost as simple, though the process does require a tiny amount of microscopic gold. The Alchemist silver coin is suspended in water and a mixture with a yellow or red sulfur to hide the tiny flecks of gold. The coin in the slurry is then agitated. This allows the stickiest of the oily quicksilver to capture the microscopic flakes of gold, which turns the coin golden with a coating, a veneer so thin that the tiny amount of gold looks solid. The Alchemist’s silver and gold are the keys to understanding many of the mysteries of the Eastern Mediterranean cultures of the past.

The “Gatekeepers of knowledge” of today understands these Dark Sayings such as Alchemy as clearly as the people of Troy understood “The Secret” contained in that Large Wooden Horse that their Gate Keepers brought through the gates into their city. A people that could describe the Horse’s outside in great detail and could give you a long list of Common people and of the Intellectual leaders of Troy that would describe the Wooden Horse in exactly the same way, EXCEPT.
