"I have bound Habhaby. I have bound his tongue. I have found the barrier of his teeth. I have bound you on a black stone by the double doors and struck the Sea (tihamatim) with a reed. I have bound you by seven mighty contraptions. I have bound you by the zidanu and amana. I have bound you by the tails of the Sun and by the horns of the Moon.
Seven youths and seven maidens are exalted, and [...] the Star (kabkabu). The bricklayer will lay the bricks by the double doors of Ellil, father of the gods and the Star has established him as representative to Ellil, father of the gods. Ellil, the father of the gods performs the magic. Spell of the Star. [...] I have bound you on Zazaum, O no-good one. [...] O Sun-god! May you lay the bricks and build the house of Ellil the father of the gods. [...] The Star is appointed as the emissary to Ellil the father of the gods. [...]
The earth has confined the serpent (bashanu); O serpent in the sea (ba-tihamat)! [...] So says the magician Dagama [to the serpent]: 'I have smitten thee'. [...] May Hadd fetch the dazzling stone and the triple-garment for the Star [who was appointed to induce Ellil to perform the magic
Kawkab is a volcano in Northeast Syria. It is 534m high and overlooks Hassakah city. There are two basaltic cones in the volcanic field. The second cone is located in the foreground, lower than the main cone(400m).
The Nabateans had two principal gods in their pantheon, and a whole range of djinns, personal gods and spirits similar to angels. These deities were Dhu Shara, or Duchares and al-Uzza. Duchares means Lord of Shera (Seir), a local mountain and thunder god who was worshipped at a rock high place as a block of stone frequently squared, in the form of a Ka'aba. Suidas in the tenth century AD described it as a 'cubic' black stone
After so many hours, the first light, the Morning Star, and the rising of the sun announces the birth and the epiphany of Dushara, indicated also by revealing the betyl, which then is carried seven times in a circumambulation aroundthe temple to be presented to all worshippers
The temple of Venus in Elusa andthe festivals around this temple were famous in the Roman period. The sources are important in supporting the assumption that Al-‘Uzzā was the local supreme deity in Elusa and was connected to the birth of Dushara in the winter solstice festival.

One of most mysterious symbols in our culture today is the black cube, which is commonly referred to as the “black cube of Saturn”. There are monuments of the black cube all around the world (see image below) and even though there are hundreds of articles and posts on the black cube, no-one really appears to know what it represents or what it is. There are suggestions that the black cube is a reference to a synthetic reality that we inhabit and that it is a reference to an illusory reality that has been imposed on creatures of the physical plane of existence. One knowledge person on this subject describes the black cube as “the matrix that is used to bind spirit and consciousness”. The black cube is also often associated with a prison. No-one seems to know why the black cube is connected to Saturn, but in pop-culture Saturn is often associated with it and Saturn supposedly has a hexagon on its pole which is a 2-dimensional representation of a cube. The black Saturn cube is often shown balancing on its edge, as shown below.
The black cube is also a symbol in Freemasonry as shown here (referred to as the rough and perfect ashlar). Quote: “In speculative Freemasonry, the rough ashlar is an allegory to uninitiated Freemasons prior to discovering enlightenment [whereas] a perfect ashlar is an allegory to a Freemason who, through Masonic education, works to achieve an upstanding life, and diligently strives to obtain enlightenment”. Below are pop-culture references to the black cube, just to show how pervasive this symbol is.
Below is the OMEN gaming computer.
The image below is from the cinematically-stunning video Eric Vs Chvrches Tether and displays the cube throughout various environments on Earth, and these environments are projected and reflected from the cube, suggesting the Earth itself were in the cube.
The movie Shorts features a black cube which they refer to as the Black Box.
Below is an image from St. Vincent’s “New York” music video.
Below is the movie Black Hollow Cage which is based around a black cube.
The music group “Lost Souls of Saturn” video.
The movie Unknown: 2036 that was on Netflix which is based around a black cube. In this movie, a mysterious cube of unknown origin is discovered on Mars. The protagonist, Mack, initially refers to the cube as a “cold, black monolith” — which is probably a reference to 2001: Space Odyssey. After a series of events, it’s revealed that Mack is a construct in a simulation, created as part of a test. In an ambiguous ending, Mack is apparently revealed to have been inside the cube the whole time, in which she had experienced the simulated reality that had been run by an A.I. (ARTI) akin to The Matrix.
The movie Kill Switch which is based around a black cube and alternate dimensions.
From the Doctor Who TV series (The Power of Three).
The Monolith from 2001: Space Odyssey. The Monolith was originally designed as a cube. Quote: “Among the new Smithsonian holdings are an early draft of the novel 2001: Space Odyssey. The two of them, director (Stanley Kubrick) and novelist (Clarke), are conspiring to make what Kubrick describes in a letter to Clarke as a “really good science fiction movie,” because they both know that there is no such thing; not yet. As they worked together — conjuring up both the novel and the film — correspondence reveals a preoccupation with “The Cube” (later transmuted into the Monolith)”.
The image below is from the movie Infinity Chamber. This movie has black cube symbolism with themes of imprisonment and illusory reality.
The movie Avarice is based around a mysterious black cube.
Obviously we have The Cube movies with people trapped in cube-like environments.
In ancient Egypt there was a god called Iah, who was associated and identified with the god Khonsu (also known as Khons). Iah was considered an “adult” version of Khonsu. He was associated with the Moon and was the god of time. His Greek equivalent was Kronos as they both ruled over time. Quote: “A’ah: An early Moon god who evolved into Iah (also known as Yah) and, eventually, Khonsu (Khons). Most, if not all, of the ancient religions had Saturn in their pantheon of gods. As “Saturn” to the Romans, he was “Kronos/Chronos” to the Greeks. To the Egyptians, he was alternately “Khons” and “Osiris”. The Babylonians named him “Ninus” while to Assyrians he was known as Bel, Bal or Belus. The Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Canaanites referred to Saturn as Baal or Baalim. Below is a figurine of Iah/Khonsu/Khons/Saturn holding what appears to be a square or cube in their hand. Iah became assimilated with Osiris who fused with Ptah. Ptah was the creator god or Memphis Demiurge who brought himself into existence”. The cube is often portrayed as something humans reside within.
