№ 8. Progeny of Jove




READER BEWARE: I realized the day I created this page that it would take an enormous effort to finish. I regard it as a long-term challenge that I return to about once a month or so always seeking to clarify my meaning. As of February 15, the page was massively reorganized and now requires more rewriting than ever. However, if you are willing to overlook the mess, most of the material is here.





The Big Picture

This page describes who are the progeny of Jove and discusses their origins dating back to at least 2600 years and the different organizational entities they have used through the ages to move stealthily through time, primarily the Knights Templar, Rosicrucians, and Freemasons. The theme that unifies this page is that all three of these secret societies were wisdom-oriented. I say “were” because although they still exist, the are no longer the progeny of Jove. They are a mere shell of their former selves. The progeny of Jove in our age is the Illuminati. They are discussed in two separate pages № 10. History of the Illuminati and № 11. Federal Reserve System. The Illuminate are all about wealth, (worldly) knowledge, and power. What all of these organizational entities have in common is that they draw their strength from a knowledge of the coming worldwide catastrophe.

The “progeny of Jove” believe they are destined to populate the earth anew after the coming apocalypse. Over a period of more than 2,600 years, they have systematically eliminated anyone else who possessed specific knowledge of the end times. And by this, I do not mean to say only the druids, Jewish kabbalists, ancient Egyptians, Arabs, and Indian mystics, but the Elongated Skulls in South America and the Maya priests in Central America, too. They are ruthless and uncanny. Untold millions of individuals have died in their relentless march towards the “New World.” If you want to understand them, stop reading this and watch the Walt Disney movie “Tomorrowland.” That is their movie. That is what they are fighting for. No one and nothing can stop them.

They are a peculiar people. In return for being part of their Brotherhood, they dedicate their lives to a multigenerational plan that will not come to fruition until sometime in the distant future. Now I am not talking about you average Freemason. I am talking about members of the Royal Arch, for example, or other high-ranking Freemasons of the past who were admitted into the inner sanctum of that organization and learned the secret of the ages. Today such men are well hidden behind need-to-know clearances. They are part of what I call the “unnamed Entity” that controls the government and military of the United States of America as well as most of the large corporations in the private sector. But this is a change in name only. The Freemasons of yore enjoyed the same level of control. I think understanding this mentality must be like combat, you cannot really understand them until you experience it for yourself.







An Overview of the Progeny of Jove

There are four distinct groups within the progeny of Jove. You might think of these as the good, the bad, and the ugly. The good guys are the Knights Templar, Rosicrucians, and Freemasons. In their day, they were altruistic lovers of knowledge. They include the men who founded the United States of America (but most certainly not the men who now control that country). This linage ceased to exist in 1947 when the CIA was created. They were over a period of some 170 years infiltrated by the Illuminati who effectively “beheaded” the Freemasons when the CIA was created. What does that mean? It means the Freemasons of today are what I call a “headless corpse,” little more than a pretentious (and apparently sometimes licentious) gentlemen’s club. This term headless corpse is actually important to my work and is discussed below in detail. In practical terms, it means President Truman was a high-ranking Freemason but no one, including him, within that organization after 1947 possessed specific knowledge about the coming destruction of the planet. 

It is their specific knowledge of the end times that gives the progeny of Jove their power. Men in possession of this knowledge are indomitable. Heads of state, captains of industry, and billionaires pale in comparison to them. It has been thus for at least 2,600 years now. The progeny of Jove are peerless in this world because they know everyone is about to die. Individual lives mean nothing to them and they act accordingly

This knowledge has been handed down from generation to generation for thousands of years, but the progeny of Jove morph from one organizational entity to another in order to remain hidden. And when they do, they take with them that knowledge. What they leave behind is a “headless corpse,”  an organization that is a mere shadow of its former self. Such is the case with the Freemasons in our lifetime and now the CIA.


In these end times, the progeny of Jove operate as an Unnamed Entity well-hidden behind “need-to-know” clearances. They control both the government and military of the United States of America as well as the Federal Reserve and by extension fiat currencies the world over. In short, they control everything. It has always been such, even in the time of Christ Jesus, whose death they orchestrated and very deliberately made sure history would blame the Jews. They despise religion, which brings us to the ugly. The Jesuits control the Catholic church. They represent the progeny of Jove within that organization. And now in these end times for the first time ever the “black” and “white” pope are one and the same person.

But there is a fourth group. I call them The Nine. They are the controlling entity.  The identity of The Nine is unknown even within the progeny of Jove. The Nine are so-called because nine is the most sacred of sacred numbers. Which brings us to the belief system of the progeny of Jove. It would be difficult to describe how much they loathe religion. The Jews are an ancient enemy. They hate the Jews with a ferocity unequaled in the annals of time.

Do not mistake anything I am saying as contempt for the Jews. My entire life has been defined by Judaism. I left home at 19 years of age to fight for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Almost every woman I have ever dated my entire life was Jewish. I live now with a Russian Jew. Hell, I even sat across the aisle from the head of the Jewish mafia at the Meyerhoff listening to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) for over a decade. I am not anti-semitic. I just will not gloss over the truth about the world in which we live.

They attempted to rid the world of Judaism in 70 AD. Subsequently, they invented Islam to rival both Judaism and Christianity. One of their main objectives in World War II was to create the state of Israel (as they “prophesied” in their Book of Revelation) either because they intend to nuke them at the last minute or because Palestine is the last place on earth you want to be during an axial tilt (owing to the highly unusual contour of the Mediterranean seabed), or both. Anyone who harbors the belief that the Jews are in control of this world is completely delusional. These are some of the most persecuted people in the history of mankind precisely because they are the № 1 enemy of the progeny of Jove.

The way I think, everyone has a God. It is whatever they think is really happening in life. Even atheists have a God because they believe the fabric of the universe is material. Most religions have an anthropomorphic, “big guy in the sky” God, this includes almost every Christian sect.

“George Carlin on Religion and God” from the bjnignog YouTube channel:

The progeny of Jove share George Carlin’s animosity towards religion, and who can blame them? But it would be a disservice to think of the progeny of Jove as mere atheists. They are much, much more. The Pythagoreans may have been some of the most cultured “men’s men” in the entire history of this world. I am sure I would cower in front of one of them in much the same manner I would feel an infinite inadequacy in the presence of Christ Jesus. They were intellectual giants and unsurpassed athletes. They sought the perfect man, and in their day I imagine they largely succeeded. Their intellectual underpinnings and their God are the sacred numbers. I share their fascination.

In fact, I am grateful to Pythagoras for awakening in me a knowledge of the sacred numbers, especially sacred number 216.

I am in awe of the sacred numbers. And I have very little tolerance for my co-religionists who would equate the sacred numbers with “numerology.” But, I fault the progeny of Jove for failing to realize that there is a conscious entity behind the sacred numbers. Christian Scientists call that conscious entity Principle, Mind, Spirit, Soul, Life, Truth, and Love. Mrs. Eddy was radical in this regard. She had no sympathy whatsoever for the popular belief in an anthropomorphic god. And I am sure she would have sympathetically laughed at George Carlin’s routine.






Pythagoras of Samos

Origins of the Progeny of Jove (circa 600 B.C.)


How often and when do these catastrophes occur? The ancients tell us they are cyclic and occur at definite times. We refer to these as cycles of destruction.

We have just experienced 2750 years of relative calm (747 BC + 2018 AD). Why do I use the date 747 BC? The answer to this question is pivotal to understanding my work. It took me years to piece this together. Here is the main point:


Because of the Bible’s “Exodus” and the popularity of Immanuel Velikovsky’s Worlds in Collision, it is not generally understood that the destructions of Mars far in exceeded anything prior to it.


It was only sometime after 687 BC when Mars assumed its present orbit that the ancients realized there would be this prolonged period of stability and calm in the solar system. It was an unimaginable period of enlightenment and knowledge of these cycles of destruction were much more widely dispersed. The “Progeny of Jove” date back to this period.

First, there are the Jewish prophets from the Old Testament.

Amos (c.802 – 745 BC) who said “that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth” [think the Water Bearer of the Age of Aquarius]

Isaiah (c. 740-681 BC) who said “The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard”

Daniel  (c. 620–538 B.C) who said “there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation”

They were not “prophets” in the sense of having some kind of supernatural knowledge. God did not select them because they were better than their fellows, tap them on their shoulder, and whisper truths about the future into their ears. That entire concept of prophecy is rubbish. There are no such prophets, any more than there is an anthropomorphic God. These men were first and foremost thinkers. They could “see into the future” because they understood more about the present.

Then the ancients Greeks:

Solon (c. 638 – c. 558 BC), a distant relative of Plato’s from whom his family learned about Atlantis

Pythagoras (c. 570 – c. 495 BC) from whom the Freemasons claim direct lineage

These men are the progeny of Jove in their day. The Jews will be infiltrated (as were the Christians many centuries later) and made to forget what is about to happen. The “Master Plan” was already formulated in the days of the ancient Greeks. Its origins date back to the Phrygians who survived our many encounters with Mars in vast underground cities in Central Anatolia (modern-day Turkey).

And then there are Asians:

Gautama Buddha (c. 563/480 – c. 483/400 BCE), also known as Siddhārtha Gautama, Shakyamuni (i.e. “Sage of the Shakyas”) Buddha, or simply the Buddha

Confucius 孔子 (551–479 BC)

All of these great men in history date back to this time period when knowledge of what the Bible calls the coming “Apocalypse”  was more widely dispersed than it is today.

They inherited this knowledge from their ancestors who survived whatever happened in 3100 BC, a mere 500 years ago then.

They know what caused it then and more or less exactly what to expect this cycle. And equally important, when. At least some people think the Mayan culture also dates back to the time period. The following quote is from an article entitled “The Difference Between The Aztec, Maya, Inca, And Olmec” on the knowledgenuts.com website.

“The Maya were the first Mesoamerican civilization, starting around 2600 B.C.”

Even the History channel dates the Maya to at least 1800 BC.

Early Maya, 1800 B.C. to A.D. 250 The earliest Maya settlements date to around 1800 B.C., or the beginning of what is called the Preclassic or Formative Period. —history.com

I like to refer to this period of time generically as 2600 BC. The people who survived the last two catastrophes (or “closing acts” of a cosmic drama as Immanuel Velikovsky calls them), most notably the Phrygians in Central Anatolia (modern-day Turkey),  brought forward into the new world in which we now live ancient knowledge about these natural cycles of destruction that ended the previous world. This is the knowledge that the progeny of Jove possess.






A scene from the Tomorrowland movie. From a distance, Tomorrowland looks a lot like Oz did.

Understanding How the Progeny of Jove Think

On my homepage, I state that “a diabolical plan dating back thousands of years is coming to fruition.” For me, it is self-evident that mankind is living on a defective planet, or at least on the only inhabitable planet in a defective solar system that is far too close to the gravitational behemoth Sirius. As the Egyptian priest said to Solon, “There have been, and will be again, many destructions of mankind arising out of many causes; the greatest have been brought about by the agencies of fire and water, and other lesser ones by innumerable other causes.” ―Timaeus By Plato

Something is routinely erasing our memory. We simply must get off this planet in order to survive.

As discussed in Origins of the Progeny of Jove (circa 600 B.C.), sometime shortly after the last encounter of Mars and Earth on March 23, 686 BC, the people who the ancient Roman poet Virgil and I both refer to as the progeny of Jove (think Knights Templar, Rosicrucians, Freemasons, etc.) decided that they would attempt what evidently has never been accomplished before, which is to survive the worst of the catastrophes to which earth is routinely subject with hoards of supplies, a cadre of the best minds (and soldiers) alive, and technology (such as “free” energy and anti-gravity propulsion systems) the likes of which most of us have never seen before or even imagined.

With a newly formed planet, the mass of humanity dead, and a one-world government, they would be in a position to jumpstart the New World and get us off this planet. But their plan truly is diabolical because it involves a planned population explosion in order to harness the brain power of the best and brightest of billions of people who are about to die a violent death. Yet what I am about to suggest is that there is ample evidence these very same men took precautions that are indicative of a deep, almost philosophical concern for the welfare of mankind. How can I reconcile these two very different points of view? It takes some practice, I must admit. Even as I write this the struggle to see the good in what they are doing rages within me. I think, had they let everyone know what was going to happen 2,600 years ago, that we could have already been off the planet. But it is way too late in the game to contemplate such alternative realities.

In trying to explain things from their perspective, there is only one analogy that works, life or death situations in combat. Officers sometimes must sacrifice a few men in order to save the majority under their command. They make decisions which directly result in the death of their own soldiers. Doing so is sometimes unavoidable. We’ve all seen scenes like this in war movies. I saw one just last night watching All the King’s Men with my domestic partner. Now magnify this hardcore battlefield reality by orders of magnitude. Think to yourself, how long has this been happening? How long has Mother Earth and Father Sky been cannibalizing their unsuspecting children? I am collecting evidence about this in the № 38. How Old is Mankind? page, but I for one am utterly convinced that the polygonal, megalithic stone builders could “melt rock” and were more advanced than us. Plus there is evidence of a worldwide, highly interconnected civilization and a more advanced geometry than we use in the work of Carl Munck. And using two entirely different analytical approaches, there is evidence that the face on Mars is part of a mathematical message intended to be read off planet. And I cannot seriously entertain for even a moment the thought that the Great Pyramid of Giza was built by a civilization inferior to ours. Such lists are endless. And new evidence of technically advanced civilizations that predate our own is being discovered all the time.

What thinking individual can doubt the prior existence of a people who were technological superior to us in every respect? Seriously? Would you be counted among them? And if such a reversion has happened even once, then there is no practical limit to the number of times it may have happened. We may be caught is a cycle of destruction that is millions of years old and quote possibly billions of years old.

Now in order to complete this mental exercise, I must ask that you become an actor for a minute or two and imagine you are the progeny of Jove around 600 B.C. We cannot judge these men by the psychopaths who are in control of the world now. The memories of February 26th, 747 BC and March 23, 687 BC, when Mars wreaked havoc on the planet and changed the length of a year from a perfect 360 days to the present 365.24 days, were not much older for them than would be memories of the Civil War for us. They knew and understand the unimaginable forces at work during one of these solar system configurations. And they could still remember the Golden Age and all that was lost since Proto-Saturn exploded and Venus morphed from being a Goddess into a threatening dragon. Our myths were living memories for them.

What price would you pay to put an end to all of this? Think of all the suffering in this age alone from 3100 BC to the present: Genghis Khan; Julius Caesar; Adolf Hitler. Endless wars and generations upon generations of subsistence living. For what? It is about to start all over again. And again. And again. And again ad infinitum. Let us assume this really has been happening for countless ages. As a military commander, would you not ask for the ultimate sacrifice of just one of these ages to save countless future ages? In other words, if you had to sacrifice the lives of everyone who has ever lived from 3100 BC until now (an estimated 100 billion lives) in order to stop what is happening, to bridge the gap of the worst of these destructions, the very one that is at our doorstep even now, how is that different than the battlefield commander who sacrifices a handful of men in order to save the majority of those under his commend? Other than being on a much larger scale, there is no difference.

But this mental exercise is not quite over. Having made this commitment, you must harden your yourself to the reality. You must pledge to one another that the lives of your fellow human beings are little more than canon fodder. You must teach yourself to think in such a way that your objective take precedence over any consideration whatsoever for the living. You must learn to think of them as the walking dead. Such callousness is not without cost. Factor in more than a few generations of interbreeding, and what we may be looking at is the cause for the genetic defect of the the psychopaths who are in control of the world right now. In other words, this may be a failed experiment that has bred a new race of men who present an entirely new threat to our species. But I must reiterate, we cannot judge the men alive in 600 B.C. by the men in control of the world now. Were you to place G.W. Bush on a stage next to Pythagorus, I think the the latter would unsheathe his sword and run the former through in less than five minutes.




With this background information, we are now ready to intelligently discuss “mankind’s dilemma.” Our individual lifespans are way too short to rely solely on passing information about the causes and timings of these cycles of destruction along from one generation to the next. Such a chain is too easily broken. To suggest that the progeny of Jove have taken certain precautions against this possibility is not to suggest that they are faint hearted. You are now well acquainted with the savagery of their survival logic. The concern here is not for the living.


, but say that the progmankind cannot face this level of destruction unawares, is . Thus certain ground rules had to be established so as to preclude any possibility whatsoever of a complete loss of this knowledge should the unthinkable happen and all the members of the secret societies die unexpectedly in some catastrophe such as a major asteroid impact. Should that happen, it must be possible for the remaining inhabitants of the planet to require this knowledge. thus the very same men who put all of this into motion 2600 years ago had to make allowances that something might go profoundly wrong resulting in a break in the continuity of the secret societies. What we are talking about here is so basic that it may escape

Though the decision was made to keep this knowledge secret, the progeny of Jove could not risk a complete loss of this knowledge because of an unexpected break in the continuity of their secret societies.

, mankind would at least still have opportunity to a change of reassembling what they knew.

One need look no further than the traditional English units of measurement used in the United States for evidence that the progeny of Jove took measures (no pun intended) to guard against the possibility of losing this knowledge over the millennia. Though it may come as a surprise to some readers, the very same units of measurements were used by the builders of the Great Pyramid of Giza and, as is thoroughly documented in the work of Carl Munck, by the ancient mound builders in North America and throughout the worldwide matrix system of which they were a part. Had the progeny of Jove allowed thse units of measurement to fall into disuse,


a total loss of have feet and There is meaningful evidence



The knowledge of what is about to happen must be perpetuated. Our individual lifespans are way too short to rely solely on passing the information along from one generation to the next. Such a chain is too easily broken. We cannot face this level of destruction unawares.


I profoundly believe that at some point in the history of this age, but no later than 600 B.C., a master plan was developed to do what no one has ever before don e conscious decision was made to keep the masses ignorant about the cycles of destruction responsible for our species amnesia. However naive it may be on my part, I imagine these men fully realized the dangers of this knowledge being lost and therefore laid down some ground rules regarding the secrecy which would become their hallmark.

I want to believe that they have always allowed for the possibility that there could be a break in their continuity, some unfortunate incident that resulted in no one alive knowing what they did. Now at the present time, the prospect of that happening is nil, but thousands of years ago it would seem to be a sensible precaution. Hence, I have imagined that those ground rules specifically included no tampering with the timeline. Why? Because if someone where to do this and there was an unanticipated break in the continuity of the secret societies then there would be no way back, no one to explain “yes but we changed time itself.” All would be lost.







What are “Headless Corpses”?

We have already introduced the concept of a headless corpse in the previous sections. Let us now thoroughly define this concept. Anciently the progeny of Jove were peoples, first the Phrygians, who survived previous world destructions in underground cities every bit as sophisticated in their day as are the underground tunnels in the Pikes Peak granite batholith of today (what Virgil described as the Vault Profound). Thereafter they became the Greeks and then the Romans. Does this mean they were Phrygians posing as Greeks and Romans? No. They “morphed” from one peoples to another, by which I mean over time the Phrygians blended in with the Greeks and became indistinguishable from them. The same happened when the progeny of Jove morphed from ancient Greece to Rome. There are still traces of this today in the cultural, genetic, and linguistic similarities of these three peoples.

Sometime around 27 BC they began to migrate to South America where they would be headquartered for about the next 1,000 years. Since their return to Europe from the Americas, they are no longer identifiable as a people except to say that they are doubtless all caucasian. Instead they are now embodied in organizations starting with the Knights Templar and ending with what I call the Unnamed Entity that hides behind “need-to-know” clearances and which controls both the government and military of the United States of America.

Whenever the progeny of Jove morph from one organizational entity to another they take with them knowledge of the end times from which they derive their unrivaled power.

For example, in the not too distant past the progeny of Jove surfaced as the Freemasons in 1717 in order to establish the United States of America and directly control it through the presidency, which they did until the time of JFK. Before his election, they morphed into the CIA. When they did, the Freemasons lost the knowledge of the end time which gave them the power the wielded for over a century.

It is only the leadership of the organization they control at any given time that knows about the coming apocalyptic destruction of the world. The people they leave behind when they morph from one organizational entity to another know nothing.

Hence the leadership within the Freemasons has not been privy to the coming apocalyptic destruction of the world since the CIA was formed after WWII. I refer to this as the beheading of an organization used by the Progeny of Jove to advance their cause. That organization is now a “headless corpse.” It knows nothing. The same has been true of the CIA since 1976 when the progeny of Jove morphed into the Unnamed Entity which hides behind “need-to-know” clearances that exclude even sitting presidents.

This is why Manly P. Hall lamented the former emphasis on esoteric knowledge over fraternity among the Freemasons. He lived through a transition of which he was evidently unaware. As I said above, today the Freemasons are little more than a pretentious men’s club that does not understand its own origins and history, which is more or less precisely what Manly P. Hall said towards the end of his life. The same is true of the CIA, which after 1976 becomes little more than an intelligence bureaucracy. As if to emphasize this point, Stansfield Turner, a Christian Scientist, was appointed Director of Central Intelligence in 1977.






Phrygian Cap renamed Liberty Cap in the United States of America

The Phrygians

Recent linguistic studies present strong evidence that the Indo-European language group originates in Anatolia. According to most accounts, the Armens were generally tall, blond-haired, and blue-eyed in appearance…  —Simple English Wikipedia, Armens

The “progeny of Jove” stealthily descended down through the ages, morphing from one organizational entity to another, in order to reach this “coming time” which Virgil longed to see. Though they claim descent from Pythagoras and the ancient Egyptians, I believe their lineage can be traced back to the Phrygians in Central Anatolia, who survived the destructions at the end of the last world en masse in over 200 underground cities such as Derinkuyu, Kaymaklı, Mazi, and Özkonak.

In Derinkuyu alone there were estimated to be as many as 20,000 people who survived; in Özkonak , 60,000 people. At least some of these underground cities were interconnected.

If you doubt the existence of the extensive underground tunnel systems in Colorado and throughout the Western United States (Virgil’s “vault profound”) which cost U.S. taxpayers trillions of dollars, you need only read this Wikipedia article about Derinkuyu to see what the “progeny of Jove” was capable of well over 2,500 years ago.



Anatolia (also known as Asia Minor by the Romans) It constitutes the bulk of modern-day Turkey

Why do I think this way? Why do I think the true origin of the progeny of Jove is the Phrygians? First off, there are still traces to this very day of cultural, genetic, and linguistic similarities between the Phrygians, Greeks, and Romans. The cultural ties are interesting, if not as significant as the genetic and linguistic similarities. One I can’t help but notice is Mount Olympus. Did you know that there is also a Phrygian Mount Olympus, too? It is called Mysian Olympus.



1. A daughter of Cecrops, from whom the country of Phrygia was believed to have derived its name (Plin. H. N. v. 32).

2. Phrygia is also used for Cybele, as the goddess who was worshipped above all others in Phrygia (Virg. Aen. vii. 139; Strab. x. p. 469), and as a surname of Athena (Minerva) on account of the Palladium which was brought from Phrygia. (Ov. Met. xiii. 337; compare Apollod. iii. 12. § 3.)


The Cybele connection (Get planet reconfigurtion quote)



The second reason whyI think the Phrygians were the progeny of Jove is the homage paid by the government and military of the United States of America to these ancient people.

Finally, there is the fact that they survived Mars en masse. The ancient Egyptian who spoke with Solon told us the Greeks are usually annihilated in cataclysms. (find quote)


I was stunned to find this highly unusual square and compasses on freemasons-freemasonry.com, the “most popular and famous Freemasons’ online magazine written by Master Masons of a Grand Lodge of Ancient, Accepted Free Masons.”  The page was entitled “The Regius Poem,” which is claimed to be the oldest extant Masonic document. So here are Master Masons discussing their oldest document and what do we find but a square and compasses adorned with a Phrygian cap I rest my case.






“The Liberty Cap is taken from the Phrygian cap – a conical cap or bonnet with the peak turned over in front,  associated in antiquity with the inhabitants of Phrygia, a region of central Anatolia (now Turkey).”

“The U.S. Army has, since 1778, utilized a “War Office Seal” in which the motto “This We’ll Defend” is displayed directly over a Phrygian cap on an upturned sword.” — Wikipedia

The “progeny of Jove” are a nameless entity now, well hidden within the government and military forces of the United States of America using “need to know” clearances that exclude even sitting presidents. Their immediate predecessors in this country are the CIA and the Freemasons. When the “progeny of Jove” morph into a new organizational entity what they leave behind is a corpse in the sense that they take with them all of their secrets. I suspect this is a relatively small group of men of extraordinary intelligence.

Virgil and the other ancients are screaming at us to expect is an axial tilt, one that I suspect for this planet is as regular as clockwork. And when it does come it will result in ocean tsunamis miles high. In the more recent past, for a man of Virgil’s stature to speak so frankly, even in poetry, would have gotten him killed. The coming axial tilt is the primary message of the design of the Great Pyramid of Giza, and knowing as they did that this would be extraordinarily difficult for us to believe after 2,500 years of planetary and solar system stability, the design of the Great Pyramid of Giza includes an amazing anti-cipher. So does the Mesoamerican Long Count Calendar, which tells us when to expect this to happen. These two anti-ciphers assure us that our interpretation of the data is correct. They are the key to understanding our past, present, and future as an intelligent species. Rarely were the Freemasons so careless and sloppy as when they designed the seal for the US Department of Interior.

Listen Carefully to Herodotus and Plato


Phrygian is considered by some linguists to have been closely related to Greek.[3][4]The similarity of some Phrygian words to Greek ones was observed by Plato in his Cratylus  —Wikipedia




Phrygian is attested by two corpora, one dated to between about the 8th and the 4th century BC (Paleo-Phrygian), and then after a period of several centuries from between the 1st and 3rd centuries BC (Neo-Phrygian)…

The last mentions of the language date to the 5th century BC and it was likely extinct by the 7th century BC.

Paleo-Phrygian used a Phoenician-derived script (its ties with Greek are debated), while Neo-Phrygian used the Greek script.  Wikipedia



By Plato 

Written 360 B.C.E

Translated by Benjamin Jowett


Her. What do you say of pur (fire) and udor (water)? 

Soc. I am at a loss how to explain pur; either the muse of Euthyphro has deserted me, or there is some very great difficulty in the word. Please, however, to note the contrivance which I adopt whenever I am in a difficulty of this sort.

Her. What is it? 

Soc. I will tell you; but I should like to know first whether you can tell me what is the meaning of the pur? 

Her. Indeed I cannot. 

Soc. Shall I tell you what I suspect to be the true explanation of this and several other words?- My belief is that they are of foreign origin. For the Hellenes, especially those who were under the dominion of the barbarians, often borrowed from them. 

Her. What is the inference? 

Soc. Why, you know that any one who seeks to demonstrate the fitness of these names according to the Hellenic language, and not according to the language from which the words are derived, is rather likely to be at fault. 

Her. Yes, certainly. 

Soc. Well then, consider whether this pur is not foreign; for the word is not easily brought into relation with the Hellenic tongue, and the Phrygians may be observed to have the same word slightly changed, just as they have udor (water) and kunes (dogs), and many other words. 

Her. That is true. 

Soc. Any violent interpretations of the words should be avoided; for something to say about them may easily be found. And thus I get rid of pur and udor…




Now before Psammetichus became king of Egypt,1 the Egyptians believed that they were the oldest people on earth. But ever since Psammetichus became king and wished to find out which people were the oldest, they have believed that the Phrygians were older than they, and they than everybody else. [2] Psammetichus, when he was in no way able to learn by inquiry which people had first come into being, devised a plan by which he took two newborn children of the common people and gave them to a shepherd to bring up among his flocks. He gave instructions that no one was to speak a word in their hearing; they were to stay by themselves in a lonely hut, and in due time the shepherd was to bring goats and give the children their milk and do everything else necessary. [3] Psammetichus did this, and gave these instructions, because he wanted to hear what speech would first come from the children, when they were past the age of indistinct babbling. And he had his wish; for one day, when the shepherd had done as he was told for two years, both children ran to him stretching out their hands and calling “Bekos!” as he opened the door and entered. [4] When he first heard this, he kept quiet about it; but when, coming often and paying careful attention, he kept hearing this same word, he told his master at last and brought the children into the king’s presence as required. Psammetichus then heard them himself, and asked to what language the word “Bekos” belonged; he found it to be a Phrygian word, signifying bread. [5] Reasoning from this, the Egyptians acknowledged that the Phrygians were older than they. This is the story which I heard from the priests of Hephaestus’2 temple at Memphis; the Greeks say among many foolish things that Psammetichus had the children reared by women whose tongues he had cut out.

Ovid and the Phrygia to Greece Migration of the Progeny of Jove

Long before the progeny of Jove began morphing from one entity to another in modern times (e.g. from the Freemasons to the CIA in 1947 United States of America), they migrated from one place to another, first infiltrating a people and then as time past becoming those people. Thus the progeny of Jove migrated from Phrygia where the survived the last series of planetary destruction en masse to Greece and then from Greece to Rome. This migration of the progeny of Jove from Phrygia to ancient Greece is symbolized in the story of Baucis & Philemon.  ,

Publius Ovidius Naso (Classical Latin: [ˈpu:.blɪ.ʊs ɔˈwɪ.dɪ.ʊs ˈnaː.soː]; 20 March 43 BC – AD 17/18), known as Ovid (/ˈɒvɪd/)[1] in the English-speaking world, was a Roman poet who lived during the reign of Augustus. He was a contemporary of the older Virgil and Horace, with whom he is often ranked as one of the three canonical poets of Latin literature. The Imperial scholar Quintilian considered him the last of the Latin love elegists.[2] He enjoyed enormous popularity, but, in one of the mysteries of literary history, was sent by Augustus into exile in a remote province on the Black Sea, where he remained until his death. Ovid himself attributes his exile to carmen et error, “a poem and a mistake”, but his discretion in discussing the causes has resulted in much speculation among scholars.  —Wikipedia
 Why is Wikipedia using this word?

In Ovid‘s moralizing fable which stands on the periphery of Greek mythology and Roman mythology, Baucis and Philemon were an old married couple in the region of Tyana, which Ovid places in Phrygia…  —Wikipedia


…certainly by the late 8th century BC [Tyana] was an independent kingdom under a ruler named Warpalawa  —Wikipedia

Among other commemorative monuments, Warpalawas most notably commissioned the carving of the İvriz relief, a rock relief at the site of Ivriz near a spring, south of Tuwanuwa in the province of Konya. In the relief, he is depicted with the storm-god Tarhunzas. His attire in the relief is seen as an evidence for his kingdom’s close affinity with the Phrygians.  —Wikipedia  [bold-red emphasis added]


The two trees are the oak tree (symbolizing the progeny of Jove now in control of ancient Greece) and the linden (representing the Phrygians who carved the cave in Central Anatolia)

In the hilly countryside of Phrygia there grew two trees which were cause for much amazement to anyone who saw them. You see, one was an oak tree and the other was a linden, yet the two grew from a single trunk. How did this marvel come to be, and what can we learn from the story?


The Oak Tree in Ancient Greece and Rome

Both the Romans and Greeks associated the oak tree with their highest gods. To the Greek god Zeus, ruler of the Olympians and the divinity of sky, rain, and thunder, the oak was sacred: he and his wife, Hera, were known as the oak god and the oak goddess.

Zeus’ oracle in Dodona, Epirus, was considered to be the oldest in Greece, though it’s importance was eventually eclipsed by the oracle of Apollo at Delphi. The oracle in Dodona was said to be founded when a black dove flew from Thebes in Egypt and settled in an oak tree at Dodona. The tree became the center of the temple, and priests would divine the god’s assertions and judgements in the rustling of the oak’s leaves.

The oracle at Dodona was visited by notable heroes of Greek mythology, including Jason, who was urged to place a protective branch from the sacred oak on the bow of his ship the Argo when he embarked on his search for the Golden Fleece. In Homer’s Odyssey, Odysseus consults the oaken oracle to ask if he should return to Ithaca in disguise or as himself.

In ancient Rome, every oak was considered sacred to Jupiter, the Italian counterpart to Zeus. Not only was Jupiter worshiped as the deity of the oak, but Roman commanders who were victorious in battle were presented with crowns of oak leaves. —The Oak Tree in Mythology – Symbolic Meaning by Carl Blackburn




Philemon (Much Ado About Nothing, 2.1.35): In Greek mythology, a peasant whowith his wife, Baucislived in a humble cottage in Phrygia. Disguised as mortals, Zeus and Hermes visited them and were received with great warmth. Zeus rewarded them by transforming their cottage into a temple.

Phaedrus: Socrates, you easily make up accounts (logos) from Egypt and any countries you wish! 
Socrates: Dear boy, the priests in the sacred precinct of Zeus at Dodona say that prophetic words first came from an oak tree. In fact, the men of that time on account of their guilelessness (lacking the wisdom you young people have) were content to listen to an oak tree and a rock, provided they spoke the truth. — Plato, Phaedrus 

[4] Pliny: “Here we must mention the awe felt for this plant by the Gauls. The Druids – for so their magicians are called – held nothing more sacred than the mistletoe and the tree that bears it, always supposing that tree to be the oak. But they choose groves of oaks for the sake of the tree alone, and they never perform any of their rites except in the presence of a branch of it; so that it seems probable that the priests themselves may derive their name from the Greek word for that tree.* In fact, they think that everything that grows on it has been sent from heaven and is a proof that the tree was chosen by the god himself….”—Pliny XVI, 249.  [bold-red emphasis added]

Dodona represent antiquity:

Dodona in Epirus in northwestern Greece was the oldest Hellenic oracle, possibly dating to the second millennium BCE according to Herodotus. The earliest accounts in Homer describe Dodona as an oracle of Zeus. —Wikipedia

Need to research other possible pre-Plato oak tree references. Started here:

July is the month when the Linden (Tilia cordata) is in full bloom not only in Poland or England but also throughout Central and Eastern Europe. Linden is a sacredtree.

In 70 AD, the Legio X Equestris buried the wealth of Israel underneath their encampment which is today called the “Temple” Mount.


1 Kings 10:14
Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred threescore and six talents of gold


a Babylonian talent was 30.3 kilograms (67 lb).[3] Ancient Israel, and other Levantine countries, adopted the Babylonian talent, but later revised the mass  —Wikipedia, Talent (measurement)


If a talent is 67 pounds, “six hundred threescore and six talents” is (666 x 67 =) 44,622 pounds or 713,952 ounces of gold each year. At today’s price of gold (January 10, 2019) of $1,296.85 per ounce, that is $925,888,651.2 or just under a billion dollars of gold each year. That gives a whole new meaning to “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” (Revelation 13:18)

Virgil’s Eclogue IV: Etymology of the “Progeny of Jove”



An Analysis of the Six Lines from Virgil’s Eclogue IV

The term progeny of Jove is borrowed from these six lines of Latin poetry.


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


Virgil is a hero of the progeny of Jove. His Latin poetry is celebrated on the back of our one dollar bill. As stated on my homepage, these lines from Virgil‘s Eclogue IV foretell an event that has not yet happened. There are two key terms used throughout this website highlighted in bold red. You need to learn them if you are going to study my work. Here is a brief analysis of these six lines.


“Assume thy greatness”

Often throughout history the progeny of Jove refer to themselves as “great” such as Alexander the Great, Constantine the GreatGreat Britain, of the Great Cathedrals. As the time draws ever nearer, this greatness becomes more real.


“the time draws nigh”

This phrase is directly comparable to Christ Jesus saying we are “right at the door” in Matthew 24:33. Both men were alive 2,000 years ago.

The urgency is questionable. It cannot be understood except in the context of the ekpyrosis (correct pronunciation) which occurs once every 2160 orbits of Jupiter (or roughly 26,000 years) and the level of destruction about to be visited upon this planet.

Only when thinking of such a vast period of time can you realize that 2,000 years into the future was “the time draws nigh” for Virgil or “right at the door” for Christ Jesus. This requires some imagination, but the progeny of Jove represent a continuity of knowledge that survived the last ekpyrosis. Everything that seems recent to us, including even the birth of Venus in 9500 BC that nearly destroyed the planet and Proto-Saturn exploding followed by the Biblical Deluge in 3100 BC is comparatively recent in this 26,000 year timeframe.

The precession of the equinoxes and the notion that the earth wobbles has been proven to be wrong. The ekpyrosis is a consequence of our binary dance with the Sirius star system.

As bad as 3100 BC was (the beginning of our’s, the Fifth World of the Mesoamericans), 9500 BC was much worse, but the ekpyrosis is unimaginable. It is why mankind has no memory. Almost everyone (on the surface) dies either immediately or in the aftermath. This is why our species suffers from an incurable amnesia. This is why we all look with a kind of morbid fascination and unconscious fear at the Great Pyramid of Giza and the polygonal, megalithic stone structures all over the world. We subconsciously know what they mean. We’ve been wiped out before, evidently in the recent past, and therefore it will most probably happen again. The progeny of Jove think they can survive in the underground tunnels in Colorado and throughout the Western United States of America for which trillions of dollars were siphoned away from U.S. taxpayers.


“Dear child of gods”

The “gods” in this line refers to the planets when the were in the polar configuration. Back then they loomed large in the sky above Earth. Proto-Saturn was our primordial sun. If you do not know that the planets were the gods of yore, start studying the work of David Talbott of The Thunderbolts Project™. The “child” here is used to signify that the knowledge of what is happening to our planets, knowledge of the cyclic destructions that occur every 432 orbits of Jupiter and of the ekpyrosis every 2160 orbits of Jupiter defines these men. Their power or greatness is derived from this knowledge.


“great progeny of Jove

Jupiter or “sky father” (here referred to as Jove) is the Roman equivalent of the Greek Zeus. The orbits of Jupiter and Saturn came too close in 3100 BC and Proto-Saturn exploded (think nova). The resultant seven days of light and the flood that followed are memorialized in the Book of Genesis of the Torah and the Old Testament of Christianity.  Hence, “Jupiter was the chief deity of Roman state religion throughout the Republican and Imperial eras” (Wikipedia). It is from this line that I adopted my use of “progeny of Jove” to refer to a rather small group of men who know everything, not only what is going to happen but when. This knowledge has been transmitted down through the ages until these end times. It survived 9500 BC. It survived 3100 BC. But now it must survive the ekpyrosis. The progeny of Jove are attempting to do this and take with them all of our knowledge and technology. They are the “progeny” of Jove (Jupiter) because Jupiter is a celestial doomsday clock counting down to this “coming time.” Jupiter is the harbinger of the New Word which they so diligently seek. It is what propels them forward. 

On a historical note, before I adopted the use of this term “progeny of Jove,” I would refer to the same group of men as the “progeny of Pythagoras,” but it is a mistake to think that this group of men date only from the time of Pythagoras. Pythagoras was one of them, but they predated him by thousands of years. For a brief period of time, I referred to them as the “beast” (of Revelation). They are indeed precisely to whom the author of Revelation was referring, but I did not like that term because it has too much religious baggage.

Finally, I decided to adopt “progeny of Jove” from Virgil‘s Eclogue IV. It is by far the most descriptive term. It will take the reader considerable time to fully realize the importance of Virgil‘s Eclogue IV to the men who founded the United States of America, which makes “progeny of Jove” all the more appropriate.


“See how it totters- the world’s orbed might, Earth, and wide ocean, and the vault profound

This is a reference to the coming axial tilt and the megatsunamis that follow. The “vault profound” is the extensive underground tunnels in Denver Colorado and throughout the Western United States. The Denver, Colorado location was scouted out several thousand years ago. It is geographically unique throughout the entire world, a 1.08 billion year old granite batholith (the Front Range) at high altitudes almost 1,000 miles from the nearest ocean. Nothing else like it exists in the entire world. It baffles geologists. The amount of planning that has gone into it boggles the mind. Denver International Airport is the reception center. In these high-tech caves, the progeny of Jove hope to accomplish what no previous highly developed society on Earth has ever done before, which is to survive the ekpyrosis with enough food and water (from the Cheesman dam) and other supplies and all of the knowledge of our world in tact (copies of patent databases and the Wikipedias of the world), including highly advanced technologies that we do not know even exist (such as the “directed energy weapon” used to destroy the Twin Towers and Building 7 on 9/11 as well as “free” energy and anti-gravity propulsion).

Their vision of the future has been captured in Walt Disney’s “Tomorrowland” movie. You cannot understand them without watching this movie.


“All, see, enraptured of the coming time!”

Few people know that the word providence has two distinct meanings. The second, lesser known meaning is “timely preparation for future eventualities.” When the progeny of Jove use this word that is the meaning it carries. It has nothing to do with God. The all-seeing “Eye of Providence” is the Great Red Spot on Jupiter because Jupiter is a celestial doomsday clock . It has been counting down 2160 orbits for the past 25,621.488 years and that countdown ended on December 16, 2018. The “coming time” in now. Enraptured means “give intense pleasure or joy to.” That may seem like a peculiar attitude towards something that is going to kill billions of people in a very short period of time, unless you have been preparing for it for thousands of years. The only thing that matters to the progeny of Jove is surviving the ekpyrosis. You live in an entirely fabricated reality. While you are distracted by the political circus of the Trump administration, they are making last minute preparations for the New World of Tomorrowland.


“Ah! might such length of days to me be given”

Virgil longed to see this day. Unless you are reading this on your deathbed, you will.

I still can find no reason to believe the Hittites are the progeny of Jove, though they may be the ones who carried with them knowledge of the ancient cycles of destruction because they are clearly from the last world.

Cumaean Sibyl by Andrea del Castagno

Literary Criticism


Ironically, Christians since the middle ages have held that the Cumaean Sibyl of Virgil’s Ecologue IV prophesied the birth of Jesus Christ and that it was this arrival of the Savior that gave rise to “the majestic roll of circling centuries begins anew,” or New Order of the Ages. Virgil himself was believed to be a prophet in this regard, and that is why Dante Alighieri selected him as his guide through the underworld in The Divine Comedy. —”Talk Of Apocalypse Reaches From US President Down

I’m afraid these boys have it all wrong. Virgil was anticipating something quite different from the Christ. Dante did not select Virgil to be the guide through the underworld in The Divine comedy because he thought Virgil was a prophet, but because of his frankness in telling us what is about to happen. The following literary critic of Eclogue 4 is from the Classics Network.

The child in Virgil’s Eclogue 4 is a Messiah of a different type. It is a generic reference to the progeny of Jove, “a new lineage is sent down from high heaven.” Virgil is looking down through the ages to the coming axial tilt and thinking of those who will survive it in the Vault Profound to populate the earth anew, which despite centuries of convoluted interpretations as to the meaning of this poem, is pretty much exactly what he says—in plain English Latin I might add.

The more I learn about the truth, the more I realize that academia makes its living making reckless guesses. Centuries of guessing what Virgil’s Eclogue 4 means to no avail. All by men infinitely more respectable than I. They know nothing about the world in which we live. What they do know, or think they know, is in great measure nothing more or less than mathematical insanity, a figment of their collect imagination. Yet if you suggest that they are wrong about something, they will bury you in a vile and vicious personal attack in which they regurgitate the wisdom of the ages as sure of their correctness as they are of the many books on which they base their opinions. What does this say about our educational system?


The child in Virgil’s Eclogue 4 is a Messiah of a different type. It is a generic reference to the progeny of Jove and their unborn generations to come.


…the work, much like Eclogue 6, is not so much concerned with pastoral themes, as it is with cosmological concepts…In line 4, the speaker references the Cumaean Sibyl, claiming it as a source for his unfolding prophecy concerning the magnus ordo saeclorum, or “great order of the ages”. The following lines (ll. 5–10) reference a myriad grouping of ideas: Hesiod’s Ages of Man; the concept of a magnus annus, or the “Great Year” that begins a great age; the Italian idea of saecula; Plato’s idea that there is a periodic rule of Saturn;  —Wikipedia


Virgil and the Messianic Eclogue
Ethics and theology in Virgil’s Eclogues.

The Roman poet Virgil had, by the thirteen and fourteenth centuries AD, acquired a reputation as the anima naturaliter Christiana. This is Latin for the “soul of the natural Christian” and it came as the result of the interpretation of some of his poetry, especially the fourth Eclogue. This reputation has stayed with Virgil since that time and it certainly played a role in preserving his poetry when other poetry was lost during the Dark Ages after the fall of Rome in 476 AD. Although Virgil lived before the advent of Jesus Christ and Christianity, it was proposed that his poetry anticipated a Christian ethic before Jesus Christ was born. It is in the fourth of ten Eclogues that this was demonstrated most dramatically.

The Eclogues are a series of ten poems that Virgil wrote circa 40 BC. The majority of these poems deal with shepherds and their various concerns. The fourth Eclogue is decidedly different in this respect. In the poem Virgil makes several statements about a child destined to bring a Golden Age and free the world from fear. Early Christian scholars (such as Saint Augustine) read this poem and concluded that this child that Virgil spoke of had to be the Messiah: Jesus Christ. Later writers, such as the Italian poet Dante, would also interpret this poem to be a prophecy regarding the Christ. More recently in the seventeenth century, John Dryden stated in his introduction to the fourth Eclogue:

“Many of the verses are translated from one of the Sibyl’s, who prophesied of our Saviour’s birth.” [1]

Below is an extended quote from the fourth Eclogue. Consider how this could be interpreted in light of Christian theology.

Now the last age by Cumae’s Sibyl sung
Has come and gone, and the majestic roll
Of circling centuries begins anew:
Justice returns, returns old Saturn’s reign,
With a new breed of men sent down from heaven.
Only do thou, at the boy’s birth in whom
The iron shall cease, the golden age arise?
Under thy guidance, whatso tracks remain
Of our old wickedness, once done away
Shall free the earth from never-ceasing fear.
He shall receive the life of gods, and see
Heroes with gods commingling, and himself
Be seen of them, and with his father’s worth
Reign o’er a world at peace. [2]

This passage talks about the birth of a boy who will bring a Golden Age to the world. One in which wickedness will be taken away and the earth will be freed from fear. This unnamed child will also “receive the life of gods” and “Reign o’er a world at peace.” Compare these ideas to those found in the book of Isaiah in the Old Testament. The Book of Isaiah was written circa 700 BC by the Jewish prophet of the same name. The following passage was interpreted by the Jews as referring to the Messiah, the “chosen one”, who would come from God to save Israel. Christians believe it refers directly to Jesus Christ. Consider the themes in the above quote from Virgil when reading this passage from Isaiah 9:6-7 from the King James Version of the Bible:

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”

The similarities between these two passages are striking and both contain similar ideas about a chosen one of God or the gods coming to earth to bring a better way of life. In Christian theology, Jesus Christ came into the world to free humanity from its sins and offer eternal salvation to those who would accept Him in their hearts. This surely would “free the world from never-ceasing fear.” If Virgil?s promised child would “Reign o’er a world at peace”, would that not correspond with Isaiah’s “Prince of Peace?” It is easy to see why this poem was interpreted as referring to Christ. Adding to this belief is how the end of the fourth Eclogue foretold that the time this child would come would be very soon. Virgil wrote this poem about forty years before the birth of Jesus, which is the blink of an eye in prophetic time. That passage reads:

By Destiny’s unalterable decree,
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 the wide ocean, and the vault profound,
All, see enraptured of the coming time. [3]

Recent scholarship on the question of the fourth Eclogue has not generally taken the interpretation favored by Saint Augustine, Dante, Dryden or the author of this essay. In fact, no living modern scholar that I know of endorses the link between the fourth Eclogue and Old Testament prophecy that is suggested here. This can be readily explained by a general reluctance among scholars to embrace the supernatural as a plausible explanation for anything. We live in a skeptical age that distrusts all things it cannot explain. Furthermore, there is always the risk the scholar in question will be mocked by his peers or not given tenure if he makes waves with antiquated ideas about Eclogue IV. Be this as it may, I would challenge the reader to consider what has been presented here and investigate for himself. Is it intellectually honest to dismiss an idea merely because there is a supernatural element? Is a messianic interpretation impossible and thus so easy to dismiss? Read the entire fourth Eclogue and draw your own conclusions. Regardless of how the reader decides this question, the fourth Eclogue cannot be ignored in the study of Virgil. The Christian monks that saved much of Western literature after Rome fell believed this poem foretold the coming of Christ. If they had not believed this, the culturally invaluable work of Virgil may have gone to oblivion and the cost to Western culture would have been incalculable.

Eclogue IV (full text)

From the Internet Classics Archive


Muses of Sicily, essay we now
A somewhat loftier task! Not all men love
Coppice or lowly tamarisk: sing we woods,
Woods worthy of a Consul let them be.
Now the last age by Cumae’s Sibyl sung
Has come and gone, and the majestic roll
Of circling centuries begins anew:
Justice returns, returns old Saturn’s reign,
With a new breed of men sent down from heaven.
Only do thou, at the boy’s birth in whom
The iron shall cease, the golden race arise,
Befriend him, chaste Lucina; ’tis thine own
Apollo reigns. And in thy consulate,
This glorious age, O Pollio, shall begin,
And the months enter on their mighty march.
Under thy guidance, whatso tracks remain
Of our old wickedness, once done away,
Shall free the earth from never-ceasing fear.
He shall receive the life of gods, and see
Heroes with gods commingling, and himself
Be seen of them, and with his father’s worth
Reign o’er a world at peace. For thee, O boy,
First shall the earth, untilled, pour freely forth
Her childish gifts, the gadding ivy-spray
With foxglove and Egyptian bean-flower mixed,
And laughing-eyed acanthus. Of themselves,
Untended, will the she-goats then bring home
Their udders swollen with milk, while flocks afield
Shall of the monstrous lion have no fear.
Thy very cradle shall pour forth for thee
Caressing flowers. The serpent too shall die,
Die shall the treacherous poison-plant, and far
And wide Assyrian spices spring. But soon
As thou hast skill to read of heroes’ fame,
And of thy father’s deeds, and inly learn
What virtue is, the plain by slow degrees
With waving corn-crops shall to golden grow,
From the wild briar shall hang the blushing grape,
And stubborn oaks sweat honey-dew. Nathless
Yet shall there lurk within of ancient wrong
Some traces, bidding tempt the deep with ships,
Gird towns with walls, with furrows cleave the earth.
Therewith a second Tiphys shall there be,
Her hero-freight a second Argo bear;
New wars too shall arise, and once again
Some great Achilles to some Troy be sent.
Then, when the mellowing years have made thee man,
No more shall mariner sail, nor pine-tree bark
Ply traffic on the sea, but every land
Shall all things bear alike: the glebe no more
Shall feel the harrow’s grip, nor vine the hook;
The sturdy ploughman shall loose yoke from steer,
Nor wool with varying colours learn to lie;
But in the meadows shall the ram himself,
Now with soft flush of purple, now with tint
Of yellow saffron, teach his fleece to shine.
While clothed in natural scarlet graze the lambs.
“Such still, such ages weave ye, as ye run,”
Sang to their spindles the consenting Fates
By Destiny’s unalterable decree.
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,
And breath suffice me to rehearse thy deeds,
Nor Thracian Orpheus should out-sing me then,
Nor Linus, though his mother this, and that
His sire should aid- Orpheus Calliope,
And Linus fair Apollo. Nay, though Pan,
With Arcady for judge, my claim contest,
With Arcady for judge great Pan himself
Should own him foiled, and from the field retire.
Begin to greet thy mother with a smile,
O baby-boy! ten months of weariness
For thee she bore: O baby-boy, begin!
For him, on whom his parents have not smiled,
Gods deem not worthy of their board or bed.









1 All lifespans are taken directly from Wikipedia except for Isaiah and Daniel. In the case of Isaiah, Wikipedia and Encyclopedia Britannica will only commit to him living sometime in the 8th-century BC. Regarding the dating of the text, Wikipedia does say, “The traditional view is that all 66 chapters of the book of Isaiah were written by one man, Isaiah, possibly in two periods between 740 BCE and c. 686 BCE ―. The lifespan for Isaiah was somewhat arbitrarily lifted from the thenagain.info website. In the case of the prophet Daniel, Wikipedia is citing “Abdullah Yusuf Ali in his Qur’anic commentary.” For Amos (added late), I once again rather arbitrarily lifted the birth date from hyperhistory.com for time’s sake. Wikipedia does say that “Amos was active c. 760–755 BCE” and gives the year of his death as 745 BCE.
