"This is the most common one:
“At the next creation, the Bolon Yokte Ku, or Nine Support Gods, will return.”
However, the actual word “return”, sometimes translated as “descent”, is not intact on the monument. "
Actually, Bolon Yokte Ku was ONE god. Thus it doesn't even refer to Nine seperate Gods. His name translated means "nine OK-te god". God SINGULAR. And the meaning of OK-te isn't known, thus "support" is speculative.
Furthermore, to call that translation "loose" would be highly considerate...
'OK-te' (the meaning of which is unknown), and "god". Confusion in classical period inscriptions suggests that the name was already ancient and unfamiliar to contemporary scribes. He also appears in inscriptions from Palenque, Usumacinta, and La Mar as a god of war, conflict, and the underworld.
7.10 Questioner: You mentioned the nine who sit on the Council. Is this “nine” the same nine as those mentioned in this book? (Questioner gestures to Uri.)
Ra: I am Ra. The Council of Nine has been retained in semi-undistorted form by two main sources, that known in your naming, as Mark and that known in your naming as Henry. In one case, the channel became the scribe. In the other, the channel was not the scribe. However, without the aid of the scribe, the energy would not have come to the channel.
7.11 Questioner: The names that you spoke of. Were they Mark Probert and Henry Puharich?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
GENE: To whom am I talking? Do you have a name?
Tom: I am Tom. I am the spokesman for the Council of Nine. In truth I am Tehuti. Yes. I am also Hamarkos, I am also Herenkar, I am known as Thomas and I am known as Atum.
GENE: Are you one of the Nine or are you a separate being?
Tom: I sit in the Council of Nine, yes. I am one that is in wisdom that speaks to you. But the Council has said that, in communications, at times I sound not wisdom Yes.
1. Tehuti was one of the most important gods to the ancient Egyptians, and was regarded as one of the oldest. The Egyptians believed that Tehuti brought them civilisation, arts and knowledge, giving them their knowledge of building, mathematics, music, writing, surveying and astronomy. The Greeks adopted him as Thoth, who was akin to Hermes, the messenger of the gods.
Atum is the source of the name 'Tom'. Atum (Atem, Turn, Temu), is virtually the same as the well-known Egyptian god Ra [schlomo: I would disagree, as Ra is the sun god and Atum was the first God. Also Atum is later replaced by Amun and Amun gets paired with Ra, bringing about a whole different religion than that of when the Nine were on earth[/schlomo], born out of Nunu, the primeval abyss. Temu was the god who created himself and the Universe, his name meaning, approximately, 'the complete one'. Although we use the term 'he', Atum or Temu was asexual.
Atum was a member of the Ennead or Great Nine, made up of Atum. Shu, Tefnut, Gebb, Nut, Osiris, Isis, Set and Nephthys.
Harmarkos, or Re-harmakkis, and Herenkar were Egyptian metaphysical beings representing the higher or supreme self, linked to Atum. Thomas is a name which Tom first used when contacting Phyllis psychically - in order to be noticed by her, he adopted the name of her deceased grandfather, Thomas. He later corrected this when she was in a position to accept his true identity.
