Chi Ro as Fish hook?

Some ancient hieroglyphics has me wondering if the chi ro is really just a symbol for a fish hook! below we see some very early christian hieroglyphics from the catacombs of Domitilla.

The Three Stars of the Sippar Tablet and Constantines Coin

The image of the 3 stars of the shamash have continued to be with us and were found on this coin from constantine's tribute, above the symbol of rome, the wolf suckling twins, are three stars. Amazingly, this goes all the way back to the sippar tablet from the 9th century. What is the meaning? At the time of Precession near a time we are approaching, we will have a secondary star appear, and many assume it is a lost binary companion. The intersection between the two stars will be either the moon, or an intersection pattern ala pisces vessica.

Here are some images for thought... The first a miedival zodiac is most interesting because at the center is christ along with the three stars.

One wonders if the Chi Ro key goes all the way back to 9th century BC Akkadian and Sumerian mythos. Here we see a similar version of it on an ancient tablet


Early Catacomb Drawings of Apostles Revealed In Rome

Did you know that the Roman Catacombs were not built to serve as secret churches? The Catacombs were truly just burial places. Just like today’s cemeteries which have chapels on-site, these early burial places also had built in chapels to perform the final blessing of a body before entombment. While Christians were persecuted at various times, they celebrated Mass in people’s homes, under the guise of a friendly gathering, and not in underground chapels.
CatacombsToday the entrance to these early Christian burial sites are found in some of the most unexpected places. The Catacombs of St. Thecla, which I had the privilege of visiting Tuesday, are found in the basement of a building belonging to an Italian insurance company in a residential neighbourhood of Rome. No joking. Of course, the insurance company is a recent addition to the landscape.
The Catacombs of St. Thecla appear on pilgrimage maps as early as the seventh century. It’s believed there was a shrine to St. Thecla not far from today’s Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls, in the place Thecla was believed to have been buried. However, today it is not certain if the St. Thecla referred to was the virgin saint referred to in ancient legends.
It was in the 19th century that the Catacombs were rediscovered by archeologists.
Fast forward to 2008 when the Pontifical Commission for Sacred Archeology was attempting to restore a portion of the Catacombs. Most of the Catacombs are chambers with crypts all the way up the wall. It seems at some point there was a plague and large numbers of people needed to be buried all at once. Hence these mass crypt chambers that could then be sealed off. In one wing of the Catacombs, however, was a crypt that seemed to have housed only two bodies. It was this chamber that the Commission for Sacred Archeology wanted to restore. Generally a private crypt means a noble family, which means it was no doubt decorated. In fact, faints hints of frescoes were evident in this special crypt, referred to in archeological terms as a double cubiculum.
The conditions in the Catacombs are cool and very humid. The archeological team set out to restore the frescoes using mechanical processes to remove calcium lime buildup (the water in Rome is highly calcified, good for bones, bad for cleaning).
Then the team heard about lasers being used in the restoration of facades of churches and statues. The idea was floated, “why not try using a laser on this crypt?” So a special laser was brought in and modified to work in highly humid conditions.
According to Dr. Barbara Mazzei the laser works on tiny portions at a time. The beam hits the calcified material and causes a chemical reaction that produces a mini-explosion. That mini-explosion causes the calcium lime to fall off the surface of the fresco, revealing the original image.
ApostlesTwo years of work revealed four images that have been identified as images of the Apostles Peter, Paul, John and Andrew, as well as an image we would recognize as The Good Shepherd. Over the main entrance to the cubiculum one can see an image of what looks like hands outstretched around a table. The Twelve Apostles.
Over one of the actual burial slots there is a visible image of a woman in noble dress.
There’s one slight problem with this Catacomb. It’s very, very delicate. The area above the Catacombs is very moist and that constant exposure to humidity is damaging to the frescoes. As one archeologist told journalists, “we’ve got a choice, preserved Catacombs or pretty flowers” referring to the fact that there is a garden above one portion of the Catacomb and the water from the flower bed filters into the Catacombs. However, placing dehumidifiers in the Catacombs alters the delicate micro-environment and can cause a whole host of other problems.

Why is Christ the Dove?

One thing that we often see is the endless iconography of Christ as Dove. Why?

Christ carries the staff of Aaron. From the time of Moses. But go back further to the time of Noah. The Chi Ro depicts the alignment of the galactic plane with our planetary plane indicating a position in our 26,000 year precession cycle. Some theorize that at the end of this cycle - the dawn of the age of aquarius - earth has large earthquakes and floods - aka time of Noah.

When the flood recedes, we see the dove carrying a sprig of green, a sign that the earth has survived and that the flood is over.

In Genesis 8:8—12, after the ark has landed on the mountains of Ararat, Noah sends out a dove three times to see how far the flood waters have receded. The first time it found nothing and returned to the ark. The second time it brought back an olive leaf, so Noah could see that God’s punishment was over and life had begun again on the earth. (The image of a dove holding an olive branch continues to be a symbol of peace to this day.) The third time, the dove did not return, and Noah knew that it was safe to leave the ark

and also the baptism of Yashua
After Jesus came up out of the water, the [Holy] Spirit [of God] came from heaven and descended on him “like a dove” (see Matthew 3:16; Mark 1:10; Luke 3:22; John 1:32

 It was while all the people were being baptized that Jesus was baptized too, and stood there praying. Suddenly heaven was opened, 22 and the Holy Spirit came down upon him in bodily form, like a dove, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son, in thee I am well pleased.

6th Century American Flag - the Beit Alfa Synogague Zodiac

The American flag may just be more ancient than you think.

" the spectacular zodiac mosaic uncovered at the ancient 6th century Byzantine period synagogue in Beit Alfa between the Beit She'an and Jezreel Valleys in northern Israel.

The mosiac shows the twelve signs of the zodiac with the name of each in Hebrew.  In the center is a representation of the pagan sun god Helios in a chariot being drawn by four horses.  In the four corners are personifications of the four seasons."

Look carefully. The red, white and blue stripes, followed by white stars on a background of blue. Look familiar?

Now look at the bottom... there, the Chi-Ro, the christian symbol. But this is not a christian drawing. It is proof that the Chi-Ro is not a christian symbol, but a zodialogical symbol, symbol of the galactic and precession cycle of the zodiac.

More interesting is that this is also found in the Hammat Tiberias Synagogue, an ancient synogague on the outskirts of  Tiberias Israel, located near the hot springs just south of the city. The synagogue dates to 286 and 337 CE, when Tiberias was the seat of the Sanhedrin (the ruling council of Jews). 

And what do we find? but the same Helios sun god.... and zodiac, as central. And this depiction, is our christ.

What's going on here!


Three Schisms Before Luther - The Original Essene Teachings

from the Synagogue, Dura-Europos, ca. 245 CE

There were 3 orders of jewish people, the Sadduccees, the Pharisees, and the smaller Essenes. The Essenes lived in northern Israel or Gallilee near Mt. Carmel and the Bethany estates. Nazareth was a commune, a community, not a place. 

Christianity has suffered several schisms from the original teachings. First it was Paul and the Ebionites who added back support for ritual sacrifice, eating of meat, and circumcism. They also added back worldly wealth and the low stature and restrictions of women. 

The depictions of Christ changed from being the wide faced Nazarene, to the thin bearded Paul. We mostly worship paul in Christian churches today and Pauls teachings. But Paul never met christ, was never a disciple. In fact he spent much of his life fighting against them. Was he an agent to corrupt from within once he saw he could not win? I don't trust Paul one bit.  

Third Century Depiction of Jesus distributing Loaves of bead and fish

The Essene belief to pool wealth and live in communes was a central part of early christianity. But it is no longer done. No money in it. Better to ask for 10% tithe a year. 

The second schism happened upon Christs departure. Mary Magdalene led the essene teachers as high teacher and used the symbol of the blue rose (impossible in nature) to symbolize the original holders of the true gospel.

Later at 325 at the Roman council of Nicea much of the original teaching was obliterated and expunged.  All references to women teachers, vegetarianism, and the importance of the seven comandments was removed.

Take a look at some of the earliest pictures of Christ, and then how after the council of Nicea, the picture changed to that of Paul, not Yashua. 

Here we see the early depiction of christ. A young man. Unbearded. Some scholars say that this was the "Romanization" of christ but there is no evidence for this, typically roman mosaic creators always tried to capture the essence of people.
Here we see 2nd century Jesus. Still Jesus with the baby face and wide chin
Here we see the Baby faced Jesus from the 2nd century

Again, a baby faced Jesus tends to his sheep

This is the oldest depiction of christ, with Pomegranates which symbolize immortality Looks a bit like the statue of liberty huh?

Actually what you are seeing is Sol Invictus, the unconquered Sun, and also, it's portrayal as the Roman emperor's crown, as we see here for three different roman emperors on coins:

No it's not America, It's First Century Roman Sculpture...

Another early depiction of christ

And now by the 4th century, Christ is Paul not christ.

Here we see a bearded christ with features of the original christ face

Mary Magdalene giving birth, with the blue rose

Another stained glass of Mary Magdelene (miriam) with the blue rose, which was a gift from Yashua on the night of conception of their child and later would be a symbol of the true essenes

Is this Yashua? No It's Paul. And that Paul Face would dominate from the sixth century onward. The original face as well as teaching of Jesus (Yashua) would be forgotten, perverted, and lost.


Now the P part of the Chi Ro Symbol, that's the Rod of Asclepus, the snake entertwining a staff. It is a reference to Aaron's staff turning into a serpent, a miracle by Moses. Legend has it that the rod was delivered to Yashua himself.


This legend of the rod as given by the Syrian Solomon in his Book of the Bee[2] has Christian characteristics. According to it the staff is a fragment of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, and was successively in the possession of Shem, of the three Patriarchs, and of Judah, just as in the Jewish legend. From Judah it descended to Pharez, ancestor of David and of the Messiah. After Pharez's death an angel carried it to the mountains of Moab and buried it there, where the pious Jethro found it. When Moses, at Jethro's request, went in search of it, the rod was brought to him by an angel. With this staff Aaron and Moses performed all the miracles related in Scripture, noteworthy among which was the swallowing up of the wonder-working rods of the Egyptian Posdi. Joshua received it from Moses and made use of it in his wars;[3] and Joshua, in turn, delivered it to Phinehas, who buried it in Jerusalem.
There it remained hidden until the birth of Jesus, when the place of its concealment was revealed to Joseph, who took it with him on the journey to Egypt.

So incredibly we have Jesus carrying the original staff of Moses. Which became taked up by the Asclepius cult of healing, an offshoot of the Nazarene healing schools.

The original symbolism of Christ as Emperor and as Healer with the Rod of Aaron, as Helios against the cross which is the Precession cycle and the galactic eliptic, now we are beginning to understand Christ and not following Paul.

Here is an excerpt from a recovered Essene bible which shows the commandment to be vegetarian:


But they answered him: “Whither should we go, Master, for with you are the words of eternal life? Tell us, what are the sins which we must shun, that we may nevermore see disease?”

Jesus answered: “Be it so according to your faith,” and he sat down among them, saying:

“It was said to them of old time, ‘Honour thy Heavenly Father and thy Earthly Mother, and do their commandments, that thy days may be long upon the earth.’ And next afterward was given this commandment, ‘Thou shalt not kill,’ for life is given to all by God, and that which God has given, let not man take away. For I tell you truly, from one Mother proceeds all that lives upon the earth. Therefore, he who kills, kills his brother. And from him will the Earthly Mother turn away, and will pluck from him her quickening breasts. And he will be shunned by her angels, and Satan will have his dwelling in his body. And the flesh of slain beasts in his body will become his own tomb. For I tell you truly, he who kills, kills himself, and whoso eats the flesh of slain beasts, eats of the body of death. For in his blood every drop of their blood turns to poison; in his breath their breath to stink; in his flesh their flesh to boils; in his bones their bones to chalk; in his bowels their bowels to decay; in his eyes their eyes to scales; in his ears their ears to waxy issue. And their death will become his death. For only in the service of your Heavenly Father are your debts of seven years forgiven in seven clays. But Satan forgives you nothing and you must pay him for all. ‘Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot; burning for burning, wound for wound; life for life, death for death.’ For the wages of sin is death. Kill not; neither eat the flesh of your innocent prey, lest you become the slaves of Satan. For that is the path of sufferings, and it leads unto death. But do the will of God, that his angels may serve you on the way of life. Obey, therefore, the words of God: ‘Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is breath of life, I give every green herb for meat. Also the milk of every thing that moveth and liveth upon earth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given unto them, so I give their milk unto you. But flesh, and the blood which quickens it, shall ye not eat. And, surely, your spurting blood will I require, your blood wherein is your soul; I will require all slain beasts, and the souls of all slain men. For I the Lord thy God am a God strong and jealous, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength: this is the first and greatest commandment.’ And the second is like unto it: ‘Love thy neighbour as thyself’ There is none other commandment greater than these.”

And after these words they all remained silent, save one, who called out: “What am I to do, Master, if I see a wild beast rend my brother in the forest? Shall I let my brother perish, or kill the wild beast? Shall not I thus transgress the law?”

And Jesus answered: “It was said to them of old time: ‘All beasts that move upon the earth, all the fish of the sea, and all the fowl of the air are given into thy power.’ I tell you truly, of all creatures living upon the earth, God created only man after his image. Wherefore beasts are for man, and not man for beasts. You do not, therefore, transgress the law if you kill the wild beast to save your brother’s life. For I tell you truly, man is more than the beast. But he who kills the beast without a cause, though the beast attack him not, through lust for slaughter, or for its flesh, or for its hide, or yet for its tusks, evil is the deed which he does, for he is turned into a wild beast himself. Wherefore is his end also as the end of the wild beasts.”

Then another said: “Moses, the greatest in Israel, suffered our forefathers to eat the flesh of clean beasts, and forbade only the flesh of unclean beasts. Why, therefore, do you forbid us the flesh of all beasts? Which law comes from God? That of Moses, or your law?”

And Jesus answered: “God gave, by Moses, ten commandments to your forefathers. ‘These commandments are hard,’ said your forefathers, and they could not keep them. When Moses saw this, he had compassion on his people, and would not that they perish. And then he gave them ten times ten commandments. For he whose feet are strong as the mountain of Zion, needs no crutches; but he whose limbs do shake, gets further having crutches, than without them. And Moses said to the Lord: ‘My heart is filled with sorrow, for my people will be lost. For they are without knowledge, and are not able to understand thy commandments. They are as little children who cannot yet understand their father’s words. Suffer, Lord, that I give them other laws, that they may not perish. if they may not be with thee, Lord, let them not be against thee; that they may sustain themselves, and when the time has come, and they are ripe for thy words, reveal to hem thy laws.’ For that did Moses break the two tablets of stone whereon were written the ten commandments, and he gave them ten times ten in their stead. And of these ten times ten the Scribes and Pharisees have made a hundred times ten commandments. And they have laid unbearable burdens on your shoulders, that they themselves do not carry. For the more nigh are the commandments to God, the less do we need; and the farther they are from God, then the more do we need. Wherefore are the laws of the Pharisees and Scribes innumerable; the laws of the Son of Man seven; of the angels three; and of God one.

“Therefore, I teach you only those laws which you can understand, that you may become men, and follow the seven laws of the Son of Man. Then will the unknown angels of the Heavenly Father also reveal their laws to you, that God’s holy spirit may descend upon you, and lead you to his law.”

And all were astonished at his wisdom, and asked him: “Continue, Master, and teach us all the laws which we can receive.”

And Jesus continued: “God commanded your forefathers: ‘Thou shalt not kill.’ But their heart was hardened and they killed. Then Moses desired that at least they should not kill men, and he suffered them to kill beasts. And then the heart of your forefathers was hardened yet more, and they killed men and beasts likewise. But I do say to you: Kill neither men, nor beasts, nor yet the food which goes into your mouth. For if you eat living food, the same will quicken you, but if you kill your food, the dead food will kill you also. For life comes only from life, and from death comes always death. For everything which kills your foods, kills your bodies also. And everything which kills your bodies kills your souls also. And your bodies become what your foods are, even as your spirits, likewise, become what your thoughts are. Therefore, eat not anything which fire, or frost, or water has destroyed. For burned, frozen and rotted foods will burn, freeze and rot your body also (1). Be not like the foolish husbandman who sowed in his ground cooked, and frozen, and rotten seeds. And the autumn came, and his fields bore nothing. And great was his distress. But be like that husbandman who sowed in his field living seed, and whose field bore living ears of wheat, paying a hundredfold for the seeds which he planted. For I tell you truly, live only by the fire of life, and prepare not your foods with the fire of death, which kills your foods, your bodies and your souls also.”

“Master, where is the fire of life?” asked some of them.

“In you, in your blood, and in your bodies.”

“And the fire of death?” asked others.

“It is the fire which blazes outside your body, which is hotter than your blood. With that fire of death you cook your foods in your homes and in your fields. I tell you truly, it is the same fire which destroys your foods and your bodies, even as the fire of malice, which ravages your thoughts, ravages your spirits. For your body is that which you eat, and your spirit is that which you think. Eat nothing, therefore, which a stronger fire than the fire of life has killed. Wherefore, prepare and eat all fruits of trees, and all grasses of the fields, and all milk of beasts good for eating. For all these are fed and ripened by the fire of life; all are the gift of the angels of our Earthly Mother. But eat nothing to which only the fire of death gives savor, for such is of Satan.”

“So eat always from the table of God: the fruits of the trees, the grain and grasses of the field, the milk of beasts, and the honey of bees. For everything beyond these is of Satan, and leads by the way of sins and of diseases unto death. But the foods which you eat from the abundant table of God give strength and youth to your body, and you will never see diseases For the table of God fed Methuselah of old, and I tell you truly, if you live even as he lived, then will the God of the living give you also long life upon the earth as was his.

“For I tell you truly, the God of the living is richer than all the rich of the earth, and his abundant table is richer than the richest table of feasting of all the rich upon the earth. Eat; therefore, all your life at the table of our Earthly Mother, and you will never see want. And when you eat at her table, eat all things even as they are found on the table of the Earthly Mother. Cook not, neither mix all things one with another, lest your bowels become as steaming bogs (2). For I tell you truly, this is abominable in the eyes of the Lord.

“Take heed, therefore, and defile not with all kinds of abominations the temple of your bodies. Be content with two or three sorts of food, which you will find always upon the table of our Earthly Mother. And desire not to devour all things which you see around you. For I tell you truly, if you mix together all sorts of food in your body, then the peace of your body will cease, and endless war will rage in you. And it will be blotted out even as homes and kingdoms divided against themselves work their own destruction. For your God is the God of peace, and does never help division. Arouse not, therefore, against you the wrath of God, lest he drive you from his table, and lest you be compelled to go to the table of Satan, where the fire of sins, diseases, and death will corrupt your body.”

Finally a Comet style PUSH Framework for Android that Works

There have been a few approaches to Push data frameworks for Android, most notably the endpoints in google cloud. But what if you don't want to hand over your credit card. Or sign up for one of the systems that will hit you with a bill when you grow? For those who don't know COMET was the method of keeping a long request open with keep alives and then using it as a connected socket to push data downstream to a client when new data was available. For mobile users its more tricky with the battery overhead of maintaining the connection, so there are additional reconnect timers added say every 1 or 5 or 10 minutes depending. 


MQTT is a protocol created by IBM and is at alphaworks.

To send a message, a client “publishes” it to the message broker.

The message broker delivers it to the correct client(s).

Publishing a message needs two things.
And a topic.
A client identifies what messages it wants to receive by “subscribing” to a topic.
If another client publishes an update with information about the arrival time of a different flight – our client will not get it.

We will only get messages published – in this case – with updates about flight 1024.

You don’t have to be so specific.

I gave an example of subscribing using wildcards.

Or it could subscribe to receive any flight time updates for Heathrow – arrivals or departures, for any airline, for any flight number.
I think I may have been labouring the idea by this point! :-)

Payload : the data you want to send

For example, recalling the sample topic structure from my last slide, a client can subscribe to get updates about the arrival time of a specific flight flying into Heathrow.

Wildcards are supported – either for a specific level of the topic tree structure, or for a whole subtree.
For example, again referring back to the sample topic structure I showed, a client can subscribe to get updates about the arrival time of any flight for any airline coming into Heathrow
The first “+” is a wildcard for the airline name, and the second “+” is a wildcard for the flight number.
