“What makes an Ancient Civilization Truly Prosper?”

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”

image_thumb.png

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.
image_thumb.png

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.

image20.png

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.

Boats and the Great Pyramid vs George Noory

I leave the radio program Coast to Coast AM on at night: because I have the knack of waking when George wants to bury a “topic.” In the last 10 minutes of Thursday – October 15, 2015 and Dr. Heather Lynn interview she hit upon a subject that awakened me: because that topic got me “banned” from ever again being a guest on Coast to Coast. A subject that I was not allowed to present on his program (http://www.coasttocoastam.com/guest/west-howard/6816). If you were listening to Professor, Heather Lee’s interview  you notice how quickly George got agitated and then  came against her statement about barges used to transport the stone blocks for the pyramids? He flatty it was stated that he thought “it was not feasible”. Why? Because the Scholarly World is not the only group that recoils at the thought of being proven WRONG!

Herodotus said:

The Pyramid was twenty years in the building

and the Machines to lift the stone were made of wood.”

35 jpg pyramid

Twenty years to transport 2.3 million blocks. “Machines” are translated from the Greek word machana. Because, if you go to any common Greek Lexicon, it will say that “machana” is defined as a machine. However, if you look at words with similar root-words you will find they are defined as “ship captains and seamen”. Furthermore, if boats are not machines; what are they? Crocodiles?

Herupakhered

I am sure you have heard of the Egyptian god, ‘Horus’ in the specific form of Herupakhered: where he is depicted as young Horus standing on the backs of crocodiles. Heru-pa-khered is defined from ancient Coptic Greek root-words as: Heru: the Coptic form of the Greek word: “HER” and is defined as “the tool of strengths.” This root word is used in the Greek god/man, Her-cules;   pa,    awesome accomplishment or to brag;    khered,    earth or stone moving.

The vast majority of the stone blocks were transported by boats (machana) envisaged as crocodiles. Not transported on rollers over land, though the blocks were on rollers as they traveled in the boat. These barges transported numerous stone blocks and were powered by two oar propelled boats. The stone barge and its propulsion unites would look like a representation of a crocodile with swimming legs (oars) and a segmented back (stone blocks) swimming down the river: when looked on from the lip of the valley.

There is also a bas-relief sculptor at Deir el Bahri that shows the Queen/Pharaoh Hatsheput to Punt1. At that temple there are also stone carvings that shows several vessels: seventy feet long by seventeen feet wide and five feet deep with fifteen oars per side. With a total of thirty to sixty oarsmen for propulsion and two more for steering.2 During that same time period large barges were also built for transporting stone blocks down the Nile River. Stone carvings show one such vessel with two Obelisks end to end, weighing hundreds of tons. A vessel that must have a been at least two hundred feet long. Herodotus wrote of the Great shipping fleet on the Nile. At Al-Lisht site, Sesostris I, had large wooden boats near his burial enclosure. We also know that granite blocks were floated down from the Aswan area along the Nile.

boat pits

The Great Pyramid has several boat pits around its base: because, machana were so important to that structure. One boat found next to the Great Pyramid is now in ‘the Boat Museumnearby, and that boat is 140 feet long. The machana was found  in a pit sealed with huge limestone blocks. A boat that indicates that the pyramids and boats have a connection. George does not want this information addressed on “HIS SHOW”. So “if” you want to sell a lot of books and be one of his favorite guest? DO NOT bring the subject of “boats and the pyramids” up!

However, if you are indeed open to anomalous evidence and want “The Rest of the ‘Dam’ Story” (not damn) about boats and the Great Pyramid you can get a copy of my book, Locked Gates, The Riddle Lords Secrets.  http://www.amazon.com/Howard-West/e/B0056I4B9M/ref=ntt_dp_epwbk_0

God’s Story Board The Night Sky

1 b c  north stars - Copy - Copy

Job 38:33 Do you know the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?

In contemporary English, “can you find the dominate star or the north star of each age?”

In this post-modern world, Christian Believers are called “Bible Thumpers!” People now would rather look to the Heavens and the Stars for Answers. My LORD JESUS has not been caught unprepared. I am sure that you are well aware of Romans 10:17, “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God”. However, the next verse (18) is where Paul shows Christian Believers, how to reach those people who would rather look to the heavens and the stars for Answers: by causing Christian Believers to go back to the Psalms: so we can give the Lost a powerful witness that points back to the Bible.

 

Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. 18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their voice went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.

Paul is referencing, Psalms 19:1-4 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows his handy work 2 Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night shows knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. 4 Their voice is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world….

I am not so naive to think that after a life time of people telling the Church that, “the meanings behind the constellations of the night sky are all of pagan origins”: that the modern church will automatically embrace the constellations as God’s Story Board. Even in Paul’s time the unbelievers were corrupting the meanings behind the stars of the heavens. However, God gave us an interface between the Bible and the stars. Psalms 147:4 ‘He (God) tells the number of the stars; he calls them all by names”. Isaiah 40:26 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that brings out their host by number: he calls them all by names. Surprising to Christians, many of the God given ancient star names have been preserved and are still used by modern astronomers. There is a star picture that has always been in the Northern sky, 24 hours a day not a monthly zodiacal constellation: this picture with its ancient star names creates a true depiction of the Scripture Genesis 3:15. And I(GOD) will put enmity between thee (Subtle Serpent) and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy (Serpent) head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

1 e fight 2 - Copy - Copy

The need to reach the Lost is why I have taken a section of my book, Locked Gates, The Riddle Lords Secrets and turned it into a free Star Talk, God’s Story Board, The Night Sky. In this way I hope to give the Church a powerful witnessing tool that few are aware of that refers back to the Bible. This free Star Talk/ Witnessing Class will be given at one of the darkest areas in the U.S.A. just after sunset about 9 pm on Memorial Day Sunday, May 24, 2015 on Highway 6, about 26 miles East of Tonopah, Nevada. Rest rooms and free over night camping available on site: hope to see you and your skeptical friends there, but, bring your Bible and lawn chairs.

The Secrets of the Great Pyramid

Building the Great Pyramid

Author Howard West provides an impressive amount of evidence that goes beyond today’s simple understanding of Mythology of ancient Egypt. Offering a whirlwind trip into the past to reveal science with in Myths of Great Pyramid of Giza. Modern rationalist believe in using Occam ‘s Razor: “the shaving of a narrative into its simplest terms.”Nevertheless, Howard West’s,Locked Gates, The Riddle Lords Secrets:proves that the stories of the Riddle Lords of the Ancient Egypt and Egypt pyramids were intentionally encrypted to give two concepts; one in simple terms for their enemies and the common folk, the other locked away; treasure hidden for their heirs. Therefore, the Riddle Lords of ancient Egypt and Egypt pyramids stories today are thought to be, easily understood narratives to entertain the childlike.The Riddle Lords of ancient Egypt have always baffled the Haughty: However, the haughty hold themselves to be the Gatekeepers of Wisdom.
