№ 26. Ekpyrosis (return of the gods)




ALL of the asteroids and comets in our solar system (not some) are planetary fragments from previous electrical scaring resulting from interplanetary lightning (as atested to by David Talbott of The Thunderbolts Project™and Wallace Thornhill of the Electric Universe), actual planetary collisions, totally destroyed planets, or ejecta from the gas giants birthing new rocky planets


The Origin of Asteroids and Comets

Contrary to what even our best thinkers believe, the planets in our solar system are not now nor have they ever been is stable orbits. The electromagnetic forces that hold the planets in their orbits are strong and last for many thousands of years, but they are easily destabilized.

Every asteroid and comet in our solar system is a testimony to the instability of our solar system’s configuration. They are not leftovers from planetary accretion. Planetary accretion as a theory is dead.This is a radically new perspective on our solar system. It is based on the theory that our solar system is too close to the gravitation behemoth Sirus and consequently is in a state of constant turmoil, chaos, and destruction.

“Solar System’s History in Disarray | Space News” from the ThunderboltsProject YouTube channel:

At 1:19 minutes into this video the commentator speaks of “a relatively recent epoch of planetary instability in the inner solar system.” No thought is given to the possibility that “planetary instability” is the result of a cyclic destruction the cause of which is extrasolar. 

The essentially narcissistic thought that gave rise to the idea of a Big Bang would now have us believe that Proto-Saturn was “captured” by the sun and that the change from the polar configuration to the present arrangment of the planets is the first time our solar system has ever reconfigured itself in response to extrasolar electromagnetic forces such as our binary dance with the Sirius star system

If we can interpret myth why can we not simply listen to what the ancients are telling us? This has happened before. It will happen again. The Mayans referred to it as a “Great Cycle” every 432 orbits of Jupiter. Every 2160 orbits of Jupiter something even more spectacular happens. The ancient Greeks called it the “Ekpyrosis”




Do “Great Cycles” of Destruction include Solar System Reconfigurations?

Once again I turn to the still misunderstood genius of Immanuel Velikovsky. He’s really not making this stuff up. So why then do those who claim to follow him completely ignore the implications of text such as this? Why are we not listening to the ancients? The following paper is copied from The Immanuel Velikovsky Archive.


Planet Ages

The ages of the past, between the successive catastrophes, are called in many diverse sources “sun ages.” I have tried to show why this designation is meaningful.1 But the ancients also maintained that the successive ages were initiated by planets: Moon, Saturn, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Mars. Therefore the sun-ages could also have been called planet ages.

Hesiod ascribed the Golden age to the time when the planet Saturn was ruling, and the Silver and Iron ages to the time of the planet Jupiter. The same concept is found in Vergil, who says that “before Jove’s day [i.e., in the Golden age when Saturn reigned] no tillers subdued the land—even to mark the field or divide it with bounds was unlawful.”

The idea that the Earth was under the sway of different planets at different ages is also the teaching of the Pythagoreans, the Magi, Gnostic sects and other secret societies.

In numerous astrological texts the same concept is repeated, that seven millennia were dominated by seven planets, one after the other.

The worshipers of the devil, the Syrian sect of the Yezidis, believed that seven thousand years had passed since the Deluge; at the end of every millennium one of the seven planet-gods descends on the earth, establishes a new order and new laws, and then retreats to his place.

An identical tradition is found in the writings of Julius Africanus: the ages of the ancestors passed under the government of the planets, each in its turn. Also according to the Ethiopian text of the First Book of Enoch, the seven world-ages were each dominated by one planet.

The gnostic sect of the Mandaeans taught in its holy book Sidra Rabba that the history of mankind is composed of seven epochs, that these epochs were terminated by catastrophes, and that one of the planets ruled in each epoch.

The length of the ages in the Sidra Rabba is made very long, but the concept is, nevertheless, common to many ancient creeds.

Immanuel Velikovsky and the ancients are telling us in plain English that routine reconfigurations (read cycles of destruction) are a natural part of the solar system in which we live.

Could it possibly be any clearer? Honestly? If you think this is poetic nonsense, I suggest you stop reading and go watch CNN. This is our past. This is real








Ekpyrosis (/ˌɛkpɪˈroʊsɪs/; Ancient Greek: ἐκπύρωσις ekpyrōsis, “conflagration”) is a Stoic belief in the periodic destruction of the cosmos by a great conflagration every Great Year. The cosmos is then recreated (palingenesis) only to be destroyed again at the end of the new cycle. This form of catastrophe is the opposite of kataklysmos (κατακλυσμός, “inundation”), the destruction of the earth by water. —Wikipedia



The Ekpyrosis

David Talbott says “In Greek, Roman, and Gnostic thought, this was ekpyrosis, a catastrophic meeting of the planets.” There is one thing, and one thing only, that could be responsible for such a cosmic catastrophe. It is of necessity extrasolar. It is our binary dance with the Sirius star system. The following “The Primer Fields Part 1” video from the David LaPoint YouTube channel begins at 20:05 minutes. Watch it until 21:09 minutes when the commentator mentions the “strong force.”

The rearrangement of these metal balls in the primer field is comparable to what is happening with the rocky planets in our solar system on the approach of the Sirius star system. This reconfiguration of the planets is what the end of the now thoroughly discredited Mesoamerican Long Count calendar is marking. “Every Great Year” is once every 2160 orbits of Jupiter, or (2160 x 11.8618 =) 25621.488 years. It occurs like clockwork because we live on a defective planet in a solar system that is way too close to the gravitation behemoth Sirius.

The Ekpyrosis is a reconfiguration of the planets every 2160 orbits of Jupiter which Plato describes as “a shifting of the bodies in the heavens which move round the Earth.”

There have been and there will be many and divers destructions of mankind, of which the greatest are by fire and water, and lesser ones by countless other means. For in truth the story that is told in your country as well as ours, how once upon a time Phaethon, son of Helios, yoked his father’s chariot, and, because he was unable to drive it along the course taken by his father, burnt up all that was upon the earth and himself perished by a thunderbolt,—that story, as it is told, has the fashion of a legend, but the truth of it lies in the occurrence of a shifting of the bodies in the heavens which move round the earth, and a destruction of the things on the earth by fierce fire, which recurs at long intervals. —Plato, Timaeus

Nothing else can explain the dire predictions of Christ Jesus and the prophet Daniel.

Matthew 24:21
for then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be

Daniel 12:1
there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation

For the Christian Scientists among you, Mary Baker Eddy married a high ranking Freemason in their heyday. I think he broke his oaths because after his death she told her followers of an “internal fire that will finally burst forth and will destroy the world.” Everyone is talking about the same event, the end of the world, or what the Book of Revelation calls the “apocalypse.” It is coming soon to a planet under your feet.

In the following quote, it is critical to notice that Belus knows “a definite date for the conflagration and the deluge.” So does the Nameless Entity well hidden behind “need-to-know” clearances that controls the government and military of the United States of America.

SenecaNow read for yourself what Lucius Annaeus Seneca (Seneca the Younger) says in Naturales quaestiones.

Some suppose that in the final catastrophe the earth, too, will be shaken, and through clefts in the ground will uncover sources of fresh rivers which will flow forth from their full source in larger volume. Berosus, the translator of [the records of] Belus, affirms that the whole issue is brought about by the course of the planets. So positive is he on the point that he assigns a definite date both for the conflagration and the deluge. All that the earth inherits will, he assures us, be consigned to flame when the planets, which now move in different orbits, all assemble in Cancer, so arranged in one row that a straight line may pass through their spheres. When the same gathering takes place in Capricorn, then we are in danger of the deluge.  —Book III. Which Treats of the Different Forms of Water, Section XXIX, Translated by John Clarke, Delphi Complete Works of Seneca the Younger (Illustrated) [bold red emphasis added]

Notice how everyone is saying this is both a “conflagration” (destruction by fire) and deluge. The tectonic stresses of a change in orbit will cause countless earthquakes and volcanoes (see the End Times page for a detailed discussion of this subject) and the orbital change inevitably results in a change in the axial tilt which floods the entire planet. Lucius Annaeus Seneca was a contemporary of Christ Jesus. The latter doubtless knew as much about mankind’s fate as the former. This “so arranged in one row that a straight line may pass through their spheres” is a precise description of David Talbott’s “polar configuration” of the planets. What then must we conclude? There is only one answer. The “Golden Age” starts after the planets reconfigure themselves into a polar configuration and this reconfiguration happens routinely. It is a return of the gods of yore (the gas giants in close proximity to earth which therefore loom large in the sky). This is the “cycles of time” of which the ancients speak.

According to the Sibyl, the Roman god Saturn returns to reign over the earth in a new golden age. This is the New World Order. This is the Novus Ordo Seclorum. There will indeed be a “one world government,” but not until after the reconfiguration of the planets, which will, of course, kill almost everyone on the surface. In fact, according to Christ Jesus, only a handful of people will survive.

From the beginning of the poem we read:

Now the last age by Cumae’s Sibyl sung Has come and gone, and the majestic roll Of circling centuries begins anew [think cycles of destruction, only here Sibyl is referring to “the big one” or the Ekpyrosis]: Justice returns, returns old Saturn’s reign [i.e. a reconfiguration of the planets], With a new breed of men sent down from heaven [think the progeny of Jove]


The Roman Temple of Saturn

The Roman Temple of Saturn is estimated to have been built in 497 BC (think 2600 BC) (credit Wikipedia)


Very little is really understood about Stanley Kubrick. He knew much more than most people realize. And he knew it sooner than most people believe. “2001: A Space Odyssey” was practice for faking the Apollo moon landings. He already knew then “what’s going to happen.” None of his subsequent movies come as close to him revealing the truth of what is about to happen.


Kubrick is telling us what to expect. And it is “something wonderful.” Mankind will survive, and the “gods” will return. Our skies will be full of heavenly bodies so close as to make the survivors think they have died and gone to heaven.  See also 2001: A Space Odyssey was Stanley Kubrick practicing for the Faked Moon Landings.

Virgil wanted very badly to be here when it happens. These lines from Virgil‘s Eclogue IV foretell an event that has not yet happened.

Assume thy greatness, for the time draws nigh,
Dear child of gods, great progeny of Jove!
See how it totters- the world’s orbed might,
Earth, and wide ocean
, and the vault profound,
All, see, enraptured of the coming time!
Ah! might such length of days to me be given

He is clearly speaking of a coming axial tilt (“See how it totters- the world’s orbed might, Earth”) and the megatsunamis (“and wide ocean”) that will follow. Ah but Virgil doubtless knew more. He is only hinting at the main event.

Finally, there is The Out-of-Place, Doomsday Sentence in Her Chapter on the Apocalypse in Mary Baker Eddy’s book Science and Health with Key to the Scripture. It references the “six seal” which is only found in Revelation 6. 

Revelation 6
12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 13 and the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16 and said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17 for the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? [bold-red emphasis added]

This text uses classic language (“the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together”) to reference an axial tilt. Arguably, these verses suggest something much more than an axial tilt such as earth moving into a new orbit when the planets reconfigure themselves. 




“Planetary Gestation” in the Mesoamerican Long Count Calendar

See also 2012 The Odyssey



My real reason for mentioning this film is that it was while watching it that I learned for the first time about the idea of “planetary gestation” in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. This discovery is attributed to José Argüelles in his book The Mayan Factor: Path Beyond Technology. I briefly outline the subject here and discuss it in depth in the (as yet unwritten) “Planetary Gestation” in the Mesoamerican Long Count Calendar section of the № 8. The Ekpyrosis: A Reconfiguration of the Planets (return of the gods)  page.

The 260 day Tzolkin calendar is well known.

The 260-day Tzolk’in, or sacred calendar, is the oldest calendar cycle known in Mesoamerica, dating back to at least 600 BC. While some scholars are still searching for an astronomical basis for this cycle, most agree it was based on the nine month human gestation period.  ―Mayan Calendar

What is not as well known, and what I learned for the first time while watching this film, is that the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar is 260 katuns (a period of 72,000 days). Exactly what the significance of this is I will need to explore after I read the book for more information, but I find the idea of “planetary gestation” profoundly interesting in light of the Ekpyrosis and the birth of Venus.

We have no memory as a species because we live on a defective planet that is subject to cycles of destruction which cannot be prevented because they are extrasolar in origin. Not even ET can relocate our solar system. Earth is a galactic freak show.



We Live on a Flawed Planet

We have no open contact with ET because we are the freak show of the galaxy, the only inhabited planet in a solar system that cannot be helped. The destruction of our planet has happened countless times before. It will happen again. Every time it does, the destruction is so complete that “our” world is lost to time. Thus mankind suffers from an incurable amnesia. With his boyish intellect, he imagines the universe was created a mere 13.8 billion years ago and that there is the distinct possibility that we may be alone, the only life form to have achieved self-awareness and survived.

The universe is teaming with life. Life is the norm, not the exception

In a universe where life is the norm, not the exception, we imagine ourselves to be the sole survivors. Why? Might it be that something is profoundly wrong, that every 432 orbits of Jupiter we experience something akin to the biblical Deluge and must begin all over again, and that every five of these cycles, when the Sirius star system is in a particular position relative to our solar system and our solar system is in a particular position relative to the galactic plane, that we experience a once-in-a-Great-Year devastation so fantastic that ET travels from all over the galaxy to observe what happens to humanity, how it blossoms over and over again, a sort of laboratory for examining the tenacity of life in the face of a cycle destruction guaranteed to erase the memory of the inhabitants of the planet. It is a show unlike any other in the galaxy.

It has been almost 26,000 years since this last happened. No one fully understands the frightful forces about to be unleashed on our planet. No one is prepared for what is about to happen. And nothing can stop it. Not God, not your government, and most of all, certainly not me. This world and all but a handful of its inhabitants will be utterly destroyed.

Every “Great Cycle” a cabal of men always try to outsmart the forces at work, and they do. The do bridge the smaller cyclic destructions every 432 orbits of Jupiter, the last of which occurred in what I generically refer to as “3100 BC” (3106 BC to be exact) and popularly known as the biblical Deluge. Thus they gain in wisdom and power and learn how to control the masses of humanity, but they never succeed in bridging the big one, what the ancient Greeks referred to as the ekpyrosis, which occurs every 2160 orbits of Jupiter. A faint hint of what is about to happen can be found in a book entitled, Cataclysm!: Compelling Evidence of a Cosmic Catastrophe in 9500 B.C. (I do the authors an injustice; this book is as close as you can get to an accurate description of what happened.)
