So the first channeled material that I ever came across was the Law of One / Ra Material channeled by Carla Rueckert and Don Elkins and I read that
pretty much all the way through over a couple of months. That's where I had first heard about the Nine. The thing that Coppens says is that Ra is
one of the nine, but Ra never explains himself to be part of the Nine and he says that only 2 people have been in contact with the Nine, from
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
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.
Mark Probert was channeling a being named Yada in the late '60s and only some of his stuff can be found
About a year later I finally got around to reading both "Briefing for the Landing on Planet Earth" and "the Only Planet of Choice" in that order.
(They are both accessible online on www.bibliotecapleyades.net...
One of the first things in the 2nd chapter of "the only planet of choice" is Gene Roddenberry asking Tom who he is,
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.
Now the first name Tom gives himself is Tehuti, which is another name for Thoth, the god of knowledge, also likened to Hermes (maybe the same dude?).
The notes in the book tell us
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.
The thing about the Nine and Tom that I find interesting is that the Nine and the Egyptian Ennead seem very very similar, but neither Ra, nor Thoth
are considered to be a part of the Ennead.
Some claim that Puharich made the Nine up and it was all led by him, but if you read the books they did a lot of stuff just for the Nine that would be
way out of the way for someone to manipulate ( like flying over israel while meditating for hours?)
Not that Puharich wasn't involved in a lot of secret govt stuff to do with the CIA and Remote Viewing/ project stargate, etc.. They say that he was
so good that he could put anyone in a trance and they would be able to remote view where something was, just like that. It's crazy and I feel sorry
for the guy because he just died alone.
Anyway, I don't know if I went on a huge tangent or if any of this stuff is helpful but I really do like thinking about and contemplating the law of
one, Ra, and the Nine. Tell me what you think
