My conclusion would be that neither of the two contemporary sides are correct.

What are the two contemporary sides?

1. "They are evil" (religion)
2. "They are made-up nonsense" ("science")

Thats why we´re so eager with this thread, because we know there´s more to it. So much more.

Good link, I think that is where the Pope gets his Miter/Hat.


Win52..............Of course this thread has had an unmeasurable amount of good input from a variety of members, it's just that many have fell off after a bit of participation and a few have kept it flowing.

I enjoyed your input, as always.

My take would be that those are "other beings" that visited us long ago. Maybe its no coincidence that christians use the fish symbol and the serpent as their opposition.

Thats right. Just about every pre-christianity culture has serpents as their main symbols/deities.

Maybe christianity turned the serpent into something evil in order to re-frame the past and establish itself as the leading movement.

Since you all were talking about the "feminine principle", I just opened another thread on the ancient extraterrestrial topic having to do with a Goddess.

well, it's all there with the Dogon. Fish and amphibian combo. With green beads too. I saw another thread where they had found green beads being traded all over. They thought it had to do with harvest and green agriculture, but maybe it has to do with the Dogon instead.Lucky beads

I understand InterestedAlways, I feel the same. I want to add so much, but it takes time to let yourself absorb the information and feel your way through it. tap into the subconscious to pull it out. Each person adds something and it keeps building the mystery.
Iron is magnetic, law of attraction type magnetics. If the Universe is magnetic, it would seem iron might play a huge part. But it could even be more than that. Some part of the atoms we still don't understand. Water is so elemental as well. Light. It is hard to wrap your brain around it all.


Another angle through this thread I have been looking at is universal cellular memory stored within water molecules. Maybe this is what people actually tap into when talking to aliens who would be diagnosed with a personality disorder if they were human.....Holy water, individual ice crystals. "charged" water so to speak. Maybe this is where we get our playback ghosts from. Holograms etc so much to it......


Waters the hologram. Irons the magnetics. Maybe ?
sonar? The link I posted mentions this. The Dogon. Indigenous and old and had an oral tradition. Please read it, it feels significant. water crystals respond to prayer and emotionEmoto's work with water is amazing. I posted his website on this thread

Well a womb is full of water.

Look how lightening is drawn to water.

The moon effects the tides.

Our bodies are full of water.

Much power can be gained from harnessing water as in millwheels.

water is a conductor. Water is life. Water doesn't like electricity or fire. It trumps all the other elements. Water puts out fire, floods earth, mists or absorbs air. Water is definately important, we know that. I know water is the key to our energy problems. I was so excited to hear that Japan has invented a water car.

A common theme in all Aboriginal mythology is the Rainbow Serpent. The Rainbow Serpent is seen as the inhabitant of permanent water holes and is in control of life’s most precious resource, water. It is the sometimes unpredictable Rainbow Serpent, who vies with the ever-reliable Sun, that replenishes the stores of water. Serpent stories vary according to environmental differences. Tribes of the monsoonal areas depict an epic interaction of the Sun, Serpent and wind in their Dreamtime stories, whereas tribes of the central desert experience less drastic seasonal shifts and their stories reflect this.

From the australian government itself.

Yes, Water is so powerful. We can't get away from the elementals, can we?

What appears to be emerging is this: the Arkangels, which are the guardians of the Ark of the new Covenant, are infinite points of light which form 3 dimensional living holographic platonic solids. These forms, both micro and macro in nature are the stuff of stars, galaxies, cells, DNA and such


From this source, which seems to just be selling things, but I liked the quote! Ties in for sure.

Squarely busted you Mr Sky, you are a Terton.





One of the special requirements for the discovery of termas is the inspiration of the feminine principle, just as it was necessary for their concealment. The great majority of tertön's have been men, and generally they are accompanied by their wives or female companions (who need not necessarily have a sexual relationship with them). Alternatively, something representing the tertön's complementary energy, whether male or female, must be present.

I know ya'll can read, but I want to do this anyway....IRON

According to Ogotemmêli, the Serpent was carried because he was moving out of the "reserved territory" and there was danger he might scorch the village, drying out all the millet and turning it red. In other words, the device the Serpent normally used for transportation could not be taken into the human village because it would affect the crops. This tells us that the Nummo used some kind of mechanical device to move around because they were unable to manoeuvre quickly on land. They must have had restricted areas where the device was not used because of its affect on the crops. There is also some suggestion the device was made of iron to protect the land from the flames it emitted. According to Ogotemmêli, iron was "the colour of shade," and the sandal the Serpent wore to move about was made of iron because iron protected the soil from "feet of fire".

RAM RAINBOW WATER PLACES

In their spaceships, the Nummo were identified with copper, a ram, a rainbow, the sun, and a calabash. Ogotemmêli told how the "ram" had the power of movement once it had risen into the heavens. When it moved in the clouds, he continued, it left a track of four colours that looked like a rainbow. As Griaule reported, "His left forefoot made a black track, his right a red track, the two others one green and one yellow. That fourfold track was called the 'the Nummo's track.'" It was further said that when there were violent storms, the golden ram plunged into the water of the Bananga marsh, south of Lower Ogol, amongst the water lilies for protection.41 This indicates that a rainbow of colours was seen when the Nummo travelled through the sky and that violent storms were dangerous to them, and so they took cover in the marshes amongst the water lilies.

Nummos' skin was primarily green, but, like the chameleon, it sometimes changed colours. It was said to at times have all the colours of the rainbow.

CAVES

Most passages in Conversations with Ogotemmêli tell us that the Nummo liked to live either high in the mountains or deep in underground tunnels and caves.

Another passage mentions the Cave of the Steady Women, out of which the Serpent came at night, and another cave called the Cave of God's Baobab, to which he returned at dawn. Some people, Ogotemmêli said, had seen the Serpent in full daylight, bright beige in colour and on the piece of land called Place of Rest, which had been intentionally left unseeded in the field of the Serpent's priest.47
