We are in the middle of events that have been foretold. I am a Christian! Therefore I believe in the prophecies of the Bible! However, there is over a billion people that believe that Muhammad was a prophet. The reason is because his prophecies came to pass! Think about that for a minute!
“If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and gives thee a sign or a wonder,
2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, then he says unto thee,
Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, “
Muhammad’s signs and wonders did come to pass, therefore, we have a group of people did “hearken unto the words of that prophet” and believed Muhammad was a true prophet. Contrary to popular belief even in the Muslim world that “prophet’s” name was not Muhammad! That is his title! مُحَمَّد,“The Most Praised One” His name was Hussein and in Hebrew? Niyffah = he 5, alef 1, shin 300, shin 300, yod 10, nun 50 so what is the total?
“For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not
that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. “
(Like Nero Claudius Caesar Drusus Germanicus)
Tirmidhi Sahih, Sunan Abu Dawud, (Sahih),
Vol. 5, P. 207;
“The world will not come to pass until a man from among my family, whose name will be my name, rules over the Arabs.”
( Why do you think there are so many Muslim boys named Muhammad or Hussein?)
There are people working to fulfill Muhammad‘s prophecies. Our Lord Jesus knew that this was going to happen! That is why we were given a Bible full of prophecies: which can tells us what our enemies believe: so we as Christian will have a heads up on events. However, it has been my experience that “All ” Christian prophecy teachers are unaware of the link between the two. They will quote an gold broker, but they are unaware of what Muhammad proclaimed! They bump along with myopic tunnel vision considering Muhammad’s prophecies to be invalid. The Bible says false prophets can have there words come to pass: which is the source of their power. And our enemies are pushing that power of Mohammad’s prophecies forward into reality
Below are some links to currently believed Islamic prophecies with references to where they are found in the Hadiths, and how they connect to the prophecies of the Bible. Those prophecies are linked to current events. Or you can write this post off and bump along with out them. I have done my job by making them available to you!
What I believe is the most necessary items need to turn a small village into a nation of greatness: without certain inventions that many people have not considered. Those inventions deal with communications.
Let us start with China, a communication system that was mentioned in the 13th century of the Christian era. In the traveler, Marco Polo’s account of his visit to the Far East, the account mentions that the Emperor of China was alerted to Polo’s arrival by sunlight reflected by mercury mirrors between mountaintops along Polo’s route. .
Moul, The Book, The Book of Marco Polo, Yule and Cordiel 1903
India, while Sir Henry Mance was serving the Crown of England he noticed that the local Rajah were out flanking him through the uses of the sun and mirrors. Mance developed his heliographic system by 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 .
General Nelson A. Miles used heliograph with 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. In 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?
In ancient Greece a funny thing happened Aeschylus, the Greek dramatist1: 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? NO! Did she have an out of body experience then? NO! Catoptromance (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 era) 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”
This refers to reflecting sunlight with a mirrored shield. Those mirrors were called aspis the Ancient Greek word for snakes or mirrored shields. The messages that were sent by these ancient heliographs were called “aspasmos6” 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.
Those sundisks, or aspis were easily spotted on the mountain sides. The British also used a heliographic system in southern Africa that were sited down gun bores to narrow the field of view. But what did the ancients use? That leads us back to Egypt and one of the symbols of Horus which was the winged sun disk with a mirror in its center. The wings of this heilographic device were not to fly with but too damper or screen the light so the field of view would be reduced.
The best snapshot of the uses of the Hittite Winged Sun Disk heliograph is a bas-relief8 sculpture of three Horsemen with woolie chaps with lead ropes for their horses (they did not have tails) who were holding the Magic mirrored unit, which is found in the collection at the Metropolitan museum of arts. This sculpture has been dated to two thousand years before the Christian era began.
That is about a thousand years before King David of Israel, Clytemnestra and the Egyptian Princess Entiu-ny. We get our letter “A” and the Sanskrit’s first letter from the Sun Disk’s folded wings. The ancient translation of the word we pronounce Pegasus is Pege-aspis which means a stratagem and the signaling bright shield. Did Rome have this system? There is some anecdotal evidence that they did.
Now why are those aspis or heliographs so important: because those Magic Mirrors gave the ancient world of the Eastern Mediterranean all the way to China 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.

A Riddle Lord said: unto them, unto you it is given to know the mysteries(:
but unto them that are without, all these things are done in riddles:
That seeing they may see, and not perceive;
and hearing they may hear, and not understand):
The Riddle Lords have always baffled the Haughty: However, the haughty hold themselves to be the Gatekeepers of Wisdom. These gatekeepers, therefore, have relegated those stories of the Riddle Lords to the status of fairy tales: stories such as of Hercules, Osiris, Isis, and Horus. The same was true about Homer’s works, and his great poems that described a civilization of chariots, fleets of ships, warriors, and palaces, which once flourished on the Greek mainland. For years the Haughty of the Scholarly World had discounted Homer’s story of the expedition to Troy; all these stories have thought to have been colossal and compelling pieces of fictions, on the same lines as today’s writers of fiction as Dean Koontz, Dan Brown, and Ann Rice.
Even so, the Wise knew perfectly well that those story form riddles, myths and legends contained deeper meanings. Aristotle (in his Metaphysics, x. 8) admits, with regard to those story form riddles hidden with in Greek mythology, that “much Wisdom had been lost”, and much “added after the mythical style,” while some knowledge, “may have been preserved to our times as the remains of ancient wisdom.” Polybius a Greek historian of the Mediterranean, and world famous for his book called. “The Histories”; in which he covered in detail the period of 220-146 BC; he also confesses, changes in those riddles hidden with in myths and legends were recognized as a “necessary means to (the Gatekeepers) political ends.” Michael Neander (1529-1581) a German astronomer says that the connections between the constellations of the night sky and the ancient legends and riddles were “the fragments of a tradition, which transmitted the knowledge of divine things possessed in the earliest times.”
Therefore, people like Heinrich Schliemann have burning within them a faith in the historical veracity of Homer and other Riddle Lords and have unearthed impressive evidence of the truth found in those ancient stories. Entire previously unknown civilization of vast material accomplishments and artistic achievement of a world is now revealed, Myths have now become reality as complex as Minotaur’s Labyrinth. These discoveries present the students of history with a maze of literary and archeological connections that as of yet has no path that satisfies everyone. Think of this book as a ball of thread similar to the ball thread that Ariadne gave Theseus, a ball thread that lead Theseus out of the darkness of Minotaur’s Labyrinth.

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 lion2” and 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,
In combat with the 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? –BINGO– The 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.

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”
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.”
Lunar Laser Ranging Retro Reflector Array
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
Sir Henry Mance’s
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
Liquid Metal Telescope
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.
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
“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?

Now that we have the history of General Miles and his war with the Apaches as a template and the fact that Xenophon called his bright shield heliographs, “Aspis also interpreted as snakes”, we can use that information as the starting point to unwind these “Riddles” of Medusa and Hydra. Medusa’s adversary was also a herculean figure that also had Zeus as his father. Though Perseus (Lightning Shield) was born1 of Dana’e (not Alcmena), who after Zeus had tired of Perseus’ mom, the King of Seriphus fell in love with her. The problem was the King did not like being reminded that he was not Dana’e’s first love. She had a son; to the King it seemed Perseus was always in the way. Now Perseus is in “The Way”2 immortalized in the night sky, north of Taurus and to the right of Andromeda and to the left of Aurica. Perseus was also the founder of Clytemnestra’s home town, Mycenae. The King of Seriphus devised a Quest for young Perseus to prove to the world that he was a man and at the same time do a service for the Crown. This was a quest that the king was sure would rid him of this unwanted memory of Dana’e’s past. The King sent Perseus to Gorgon (the land of ugly women) and to Medusa the monster woman with aspis for hair. 3However, those aspis were: Xenophon’s bright shield heliographs: NOT SNAKES.
Each aspis was a magic mirror or heliograph that was installed on one of Medusa’s many mountain top or watchtower “Sentinel outposts” each of which were manned by her faithful Gorgons and those watchtowers were really her eyes and ears who sent communiques back to her from the horizon and beyond. The Gorgon sentinel out post was symbolized as snakes emanating from Medusa and these outposts had only one Eye, a mirrored shield that the Gorgons would blink (or wink) Morris Code like messages to Medusa and to other sentinel outposts, communiques that allowed for direct interaction with Medusa in her citadel in real time. In so doing Medusa controlled the “High Ground”. These heliographs gave up to the minute intelligence to Medusa, just as General Mile’s mountain top heliographs gave him the advantage over the Apache.
These mirrored shields were also known as Eyes or Cyclopes, sorry that word Cyclopes also means a disk of copper with a bright finish4 besides the common definition of a one-eyed monster5 and the Egyptians called these Cyclopes, Horus, udjat depicted as a human eye and eyebrow.6 These were quicksilver coated copper shields/disks, a magic mirror using the alchemist silver trick.
Geronimo said of those mirrors:
“A power that I could not understand”
Because of the heilographic communication system which Medusa used, she was able to keep a constant watch on strangers, merchant caravans, and enemy troop movements. Medusa could set up ambushes with her troops, long before the unsuspecting visitor could even know that Medusa was aware of him. It must have seemed as if that stranger was moving like a stone when events overtook him.
Now Perseus had some advisers, Nymphs “Smart young women” at least as smart as Clytemnestra. These Nymphs gave that young man some good advice.7 Wear Shoes of Swiftness8 to be able to out run Medusa’s lighting fast communications system. So the Nymphs gave him some “Six League Boots” called the Shoes of Swiftness. The text does not call her Nike the goddess of Winged Victory but my guess is that she had some shoes for him to wear, however, those shoes never left the ground they were the wings of the Great Falcon
Coffin Text Passage 148
I am Horus, the great Falcon upon the ramparts of the house of him of the hidden name.
(Horus was the heliograph that was on the platform of the Great Pyramid.)
My flights have reached the horizon.
(Blinks of light “The message” could be read as far away as the horizon and be transmitted to the next horizon.)
I have passed by the gods of Nut. I have gone further that the gods of old. Even the most ancient bird could not equal my very first flight.
(A speed unequaled, because the messages that traveled at the speed of light to the horizon.)
I have removed my place beyond the power of Set, the foe of my father Osiris.
(Messages that were traveling above the enemy that had no way stop the message.)
No other god could do what I have done.
I have brought the ways of eternity to the twilight of the morning.
These messages could be transmitted during the daylight hours at speeds that would take days of travel by the fastest horsemen and that communication was done in a matter of seconds. A feat that would seem to be as amazing as Time Travel would be today.
I am Unique in my flight
(The message could be sent and the sender, stay at the point of origination.)
One of the many symbols of Horus was the winged sun disk 10with a mirror in its center. The wings of this heilographic device were not to fly with but too damper or screen the light so the field of view would be reduced. We get our letter “A” and the Sanskrit’s first letter from the Sun Disk’s folded wings.
You most often see the Sun disk with its wing spread: but when the wings are folded to reduce the field of view the Sun disk becomes an “A” from the overhead view .
First letter in
The light being affected in the same way that movie studio set lights use the same type of wings to put light only to the place most needed. This device gave Perseus knowledge from as far away as “the HORUSion” or six leagues away without taking a step. The messenger god of Rome was Mercury who also had winged feet of swiftness. Remember the metal that gave these copper mirrors their shine, mercury, the trick of the Alchemist silver.
The Nymphs Advised Perseus
“Wear the Cap of Darkness and Use a Sword of Sharpness”
The Sentinel outposts of Medusa used the sun as a light source for their communication system making that interaction impossible during the nighttime hours: and because of the darkness, consequently, there was not enough light for the Gorgons to see clearly in the dark. Night is the “Cap of Darkness” and was the perfect time for Perseus to move unseen by Medusa’s watchtowers. “One tooth is all that the Gorgons had”, one copper sword, this type of weapon was the standard military issue of the time and was cheap, easy to sharpen; but would not hold a sharp edge and would nick with the first use. Unfortunately, because of that softness, they would become dull quickly and the sharper the copper sword, the quicker it would become blunted. Iron swords that were made from meteors were available, but were rare. Even so, the gold miners of that era had an abundance of magnetite iron that was cast off in the refining of gold, so that iron was available and easier to locate than a Falling Star. Though both types of Iron swords would keep an edge and if the antagonist was strong enough, he could cut a copper sword in two with one blow, that Iron sword made it easier to capture the Sentinel Outpost.
Because, of that victory Perseus was able to use the mirror of the Sentinel Eye to tell Medusa that he, Perseus was moving away from Medusa when he was actually coming toward her. Therefore, Medusa was unaware of the approach of Perseus; consequently, her defenses were down. This apathy was because she had grown to rely on the aspis (heliographs or mirrors) to blink a warning before an intruder could enter her city. This complacency made it easy for Perseus to walk in, and defeat Medusa.
Hydra Verses Hercules
Now let us get back to Perseus’ big brother, and Hercules’ problem, The Hydra. Again it is a problem that deals with a beast with many aspis heads or (heliographic) Sentinels Out posts. However, this time those Sentinels Out posts were on wooden watchtowers, Sentinel Outposts that were in the command of the “High Ground.” As a reference we will have to come back to the mid-20th century of the Christian era, and the war on the Korean peninsula, a war where thousands of men died over the control of “The High Ground.” There is an Old military adage:
“He who controls the High Ground
Controls the Battle.”
The reason being is that with the view from the high ground a general can see the battle field and knows where both his troops and those of his enemy troops are. However, his enemy is kept from having that field of view and command and control, making the generals troop’s invisible. This invisibility and this heilographic command and control, allows the general to move his troops unseen by his enemy. Troops moved to give our general the best advantage to win the battle. Today the US Military uses satellites as High Ground Sentinel out posts, but they are somewhat slower than the boots on the ground surveillance of the old fashion “High Ground” sentinels.
The problem for our old friend Hercules and his Legendary “Olive Branch” club had was that after working “all night” to take control of the High Ground Watchtower, and taking the Outposts Aspis heliograph; which was one of the many heads of the Hydra. Hercules would then move onto the next watchtower, leaving that High Ground unguarded, at which time his enemies would re-man the tower with a new aspis heliograph carried on the backs of horses (Pegasus) and be back in business of controlling the High Ground. Hercules’ nephew saw what was happening and thought “this is DUMB” So even, though Iolaus was not the warrior that his uncle Hercules was, he knew how to start a fire and burned the watchtowers down after Hercules had cleared them out of enemy troops, but before the enemy could re-man them.

The best snapshot of the uses of the Hittite Winged Sun Disk heliograph which Pegasus carried is a bas-relief1 sculpture of three men holding the Magic mirrored unit, which is found in the collection at the Metropolitan museum of arts. This sculpture has been dated to two thousand years before the Christian era began. That is a thousand years before King David of Israel, Clytemnestra and the Egyptian Princess Entiu-ny.
Hittite Winged Sun Disk
Two of the men in the relief are stabilizing the device and directing the reflective beam of light. The third is stabilizing the other two men’s arms. Just above the two men’s shoulders, there are two levers that are used to stabilize the unit if placed on the ground. A round disk on a pole was used to blink the mirror reflection. This is one of the military small portable units used in battle and was carried on the backs of horses. The Sun disk’s wings were not for flying as I have mentioned before, but those wings were for reducing the field of view. In the late 19th century the British military use pipes and even gun bores to narrow the field of view of their heliographs in effect creating the forerunner to our modern LASER.
Medusa’s Gorgons, used horses to transport just as General Miles his heliographs. Homer’s Bellerophn found one of Medusa lost horses with a sun disk aboard with its wings folded over the horse’s flanks. Homer was BLIND2 and everything he spoke of was from a blind man’s perspective, so you cannot take him as an eye witness. Therefore, when Homer was told of a horse with wings on its back and able to deliver messages quickly through the air: Homer explained it as a flying horse. The ancient translation of the word we pronounce Pegasus is Pege-aspis which means a stratagem3 and the signaling bright shield.4. That is why when Bellerophn found that abandoned horse and its precious cargo, he named the horse and its load “Pegasus” or Pege-aspis and after this stratagem of Aries (Mars), enabling Bellerophn to use Pegasus to defeat the Chimera.5
Mohammad was thought to have used this type of winged horse communication system to keep track of Islam’s most holy sites. One of these heilographic sentinel outposts was on the hill where the Dome of the Rock now sits in Jerusalem.
Mohammad was a great military leader and would have used that tool of a horse portable heliograph to his greatest advantage, though many Muslims would consider the Magic of the heliograph being connected to Mohammad to be heresy.
Ahura Mazda the good god, of truth and light
The religious convictions of the Hittites’ were the foundation of the Zoroasterision sect and their main god is Ahura Mazda the good god, of truth, and light.6 One of the most prominent depictions of Ahura Mazda is on the wall of the gateway to the ruined Persian capital of Persepolis where he stands in the middle of a Hittite Sun Disk heliograph where he is holding a small mirror. This is the same type of golden disks that was found in burial shafts of ancient Mycenae found by Heinrich Schiemann in the late 1868-1876 of the Christian era7. Little round Magic Mirrors of gold used to flash messages to the nearest watch tower (cell-tower) giving the man on the go instant communication, so he could keep in touch. Magic Mirrors that were entombed with those leaders, just as today some people are buried with their portable communication devices, cell phones.
In the 13th century, before the Christian era there was a Hittite king called, The Great King of Khatti: though in Egyptian the name would have been pronounced KHUTI. That name is the word for “LIGHTS.” The Great King of Lights fought Rameses II at the battle of Kadish in the Orontes valley in what is now Syria. The Great King of Lights forced Ramses II to sign a treaty in Karnack, Egypt1. The Winged Sun Disks (lights) were used for communication, surveillance, command and control. This gave the Hittite king the advantage over Ramses II of Egypt who was thought to be the best war tactician of his time, Rameses II, was fought to a draw because he did not control the “High Ground.”
The All Seeing Eye of Osiris
Udjat of Horus
The Greek messenger goddess that came to Helen and the Greeks that were in siege around Troy was Iris. The All Seeing Eye of Osiris, (Iris) is now depicted as an eye although in ancient jewelry and inscriptions this eye sometimes had added on components, the Udjat of Horus depicted as a human eye and eyebrow. Under the eye was a long central shaft and a long sweep or lever that attached to the base of the Eye. The central shaft was placed into a socket on the top of a watchtower or mountaintop and the sweep or lever was used to turn the whole unit: This was so the Sun would reflect its light from the iris, “the Magic Mirror” to the proper location just as with the Sun Disk an Eye lid on a pole could blink or wink the eye.
Harmakhet, Horus in the Horizon, in this form Horus represented the rising sun and was associated with Khepn. He was also considered to be the keeper of wisdom. Maat was the goddess of wisdom of Egypt, who advised the Pharaohs, and her symbol was a single scribe reed stylized to look like a feather dropped from the wings of Horus, a message that was sent by Egypt’s heilographic network. And just like Medusa and General Miles this intelligence provided by these heliographs kept the Pharaohs up to date on what was happening all over Egypt and beyond. Horus the Elder also known as Haroeis, and Mekhenti-Irry are two forms of the Egyptian god Horus that has two eyes on his brow. Many, of “The Traditional Scholars”2 have wrongly concluded that eyes were only a symbols of the sun and the other was the moon.3 The two eyes riddles were really a twin mirror heliograph system that allowed a message to be sent any time during the day even if the sun would not allow a single mirror to direct its refection to the location needed. This same type of twin mirror system was used by General Miles thousands of years later.
