Summoning The Watchers
MY SINCERE APOLOGIES FOR HAVING TO CANCEL THESE SHOWS LAST WEEKEND BUT IT WAS UNAVOIDABLE. HOWEVER, WE HAVE RESCHEDULED FOR THIS WEEKEND AT THE FOLLOWING LINKS:
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 04 @ 8PM EST
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 05 @5PM EST
I spent a brief bit of time on my show last Friday exploring the fascinating lore centered on an enigmatic group of beings known as The Watchers. As I began peeling layers away, I found that the religious mythology in all parts the world had some entities within their pantheons that served a similar role. This group has been a topic of much research for me in the past and I thought I had a fairly firm grasp on this subject…. and was mistaken. As a result, I’ll be doing a pair of shows this weekend to cover the majority of this information and add my own insight and understanding. Who are they and what is/was their role? Who made them and who do/did they serve? These are crucial questions to consider in uncovering objective truth.
On Friday’s show, @ 8 PM EST, I’ll begin by reading one of my favorite poetic journeys into otherworld entitled The Abaddon Agreement, which suggests a perspective that is totally contrary to the writings attributed to Enoch. Because most in the western world are relatively familiar with the Judeo-Christian version found in these writings, establishing their authenticity is of paramount importance and here’s where a researcher runs into their first snag.
The earliest known fragments of these books date to only around 2nd century BCE. If we are to take the flood story found in the Torah and Bible at face value, in terms of timeline, there is a gap of at least a thousand years. How did these writings possibly survive that long. How long had writing been around and how many were literate? Significant evidence has surfaced that indicates this body of work may actually be a number of writers simply using his name to write under. In the first two centuries of the early church, these writings were considered to be divinely inspired and endorsed by the likes of Tertullion but were then banned at the Council of Laodicea in 364 CE as heretical. Why would they ban these manuscripts when the Book of Jude quotes directly from them? Is it possible that they uncovered something about them and quietly hid away the evidence?
Another aspect of this puzzle involves the very clear transference of gods from one group to another, as seen in Greek and Roman religious mythology. I purposely add “religious” to this because, at the height of their popularity, they were religions and its adherents every bit as fervent in their beliefs as the modern-day Muslim, Christian or Hindu. What wee see in these pantheons and numerous others are entities that have roughly the same job or role with simply a different name. Whether it is the middle east, far east or in the west, the commonalities are far too numerous to pass of as chance. Because most are familiar with some form of Judeo-Christian religious mythology, it is important to examine some specific aspects. For instance…. It must be understood that there term “angel” was invented by the Abrahamic beliefs but a closer inspection reveals this grouping to contain many diverse types of entities. Here’s a good analogy: You’re at the grocery store with your family. You pick up a pineapple and look at your child, who asks, “What is that?” Would you consider replying, “It’s a fruit.”? That is essentially what this term entails and it is both misleading and erroneous, causing people to make choices in their personal belief system without having all the information.
While we know that there is a direct connection between the gods of war in the Greek and Roman pantheons, there may well be a similar one within the Abrahamic beliefs. One hand, there is an arguably circumstantial piece of peripheral evidence found in Rev.9:11 -“And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.” We have the pairing of Aries and Bellona (they used her name for the half human/Klingon character in Star Trek Voyager) and Mars with Enyo, and some have speculated that Michael and Faith may be a similar pairing, playing a similar role.
When we understand that civilizations have often been built on the ashes of others, it is equally important to keep in mind that religious mythological belief systems often became entwined, a fact clearly evident to any objective observer of western religions. The holiday known as Christmas was chosen to coincide on the same date as existing pagan festivals and celestial activities, while Easter tried, unsuccessfully, to turn the heathens and pagans from honoring the fertility goddess Eoster, with the Easter Bunny and Easter eggs. Halloween was unsuccessfully countered as well by All Saints Day on November 1st. The point is that today, few are aware of the true origins of these imposed holidays and “holy days”. There are other elements, as well that most take for granted, even those of the religious persuasion.
Consider an action that takes place at thousands of birthdays each day involving the birthday candles. The suggested sequence of events we learned from an early age – close your eyes, make a wish and then blow out the candles. This act, in simplified form, contains all the elements of a candle magic ritual. The parent is essentially, albeit tacitly, telling the child that if you wish for something and then blow a candle out, the universe will bring you the object of that wish. Because of the propensity for, in the least, discouragement from spiritual exploration outside of the box imposed by their respective religious mythology, most do not do the research to find out about seemingly innocent acts like blowing out birthday candles.
The transference mentioned earlier is also very evident in the far east and in many cases, is mirrored in civilizations thousands of miles away in the jungles of Central and South America. Take the aspect of “hell” as an example. The Mayan hell, known as Xibalba, contained 9 levels, according to the Popul Vuh, while the Chinese version contained not only the same number but similar “realms” of punishment with a similar number of “overseers”. You will also note that Inferno, the first part of Dante’s Divine Comedy, also details 9 levels of hell.
To sum up here, the purpose of this post was to provide a small portion of the rationale for having this upcoming two part show centered on enigmatic beings known as The Watchers. What is their role and purpose, across numerous belief systems, and who do they serve? I will attempt unravel at least a partial answer to that question in this pair of shows.
Below is a short selection of some of the links I’ll be using for these shows, if you’d like to research the topics on your own.
