Walpurgis Night is the eve of the feast day of Saint Walpurgis, a saint of the Roman Catholic Church. Walpurgis Night falls on April 30th and is a traditional holiday celebrated in northern Europe and Scandinavia. It may surprise you to know this festival has nothing to do with the saint, instead, it is a spring celebration with striking similarities to Halloween.

Who Was Saint Walpurga?

Walpurgis Night is known alternatively as Saint Walpurga’s Eve, Walpurgisnacht, and Vappu. Saint Walpurga (known also as Valborg, Wealdburg, or Valderburger) was born around 710 AD, probably in the English Kingdom of Wessex. She became a member of the community at the Wimborne Abbey, Dorset, and was later summoned by Winebald, her brother, to serve as abbess at his double monastery of monks and nuns at Heidenheim, in modern day Germany. She died in 779 AD and was buried in Heidenheim. Around 870 AD, her remains were transferred to the Church of the Holy Cross at Eichstätt. As this occurred on May 1st , this date has become associated with the saint.

The celebration of Walpurgis Night has little to do with either Christianity, or Saint Walpurga. Instead, the origins of this festival may be found in the period before the arrival of Christianity in northern Europe. As the festival falls during the period when spring arrived, the pagans conducted rituals to welcome spring and ensure the fertility of the land.

Witches & Walpurgis Night

For some reason, Walpurgis Night is also associated with witches . In German folklore, for instance, it is said that witches from all over the land would gather for a great sabbath on top of the Brocken (also known as the Blocksberg), the highest peak of the Harz mountain range. This notion was first recorded during the 17th century in Johannes Präetorius’, The Blocksberg Performance , a tome about the history and geography of the mountain and the region. It was, however, during the 19th and 20th century that the witches’ sabbath on the Brocken became popular in art and literature, most notably in Goethe’s well-known play Faust.

Walpurgisnacht Traditions

In line with the belief that Walpurgis Night was a night when witches and other evil entities were roaming freely around the land, certain practices were developed to keep them at bay. Thus, in Germany, on Walpurgis Night, people would dress up in costumes, and make loud noises. Additionally, to ward off these malevolent forces, people would also hang blessed sprigs of foliage from houses or barns, or leave offerings of bread with butter and honey (known as ‘ankenschnitt’) for phantom hounds .

Another typical activity carried out on Walpurgis Night is the lighting of bonfires, which, according to one tradition, was also a means of warding off witches. Another tradition states that the lighting of bonfires dates back to pre-Christian times. During that period, the pagan Germans would leave their livestock to graze around the spring equinox . In order to scare away wild animals, they would light bonfires, dance around them, and make much noise. When Christianity arrived, the bishops found that these activities were a little too pagan. Instead of banning it, however, the bishops decided to shift it to Walpurgis Night, so that it could be associated with the Christian saint.

Happy Walpurgisnacht! Happy Vappu!

Saint Walpurga was never associated with Scandinavia and Walpurgis Night originated in Germany, where she served as abbess for about half her life. Nevertheless, this festival spread to the north, and is today also celebrated in such countries as Sweden and Finland. Moreover, Walpurgis Night is an important holiday in these countries.

In Finland, for example, Walpurgis Night is known also as Vappu, and is one of the country’s most important holidays. Although it was initially celebrated by the upper class, during the late 19th century it became popular amongst university students. Today, Walpurgis Night is celebrated by all segments of both Finnish and Swedish societies.

Ancient Egyptian North Star Eclipsed By Astronomical Discovery

Ashley Cowie, Ancient Origins

The star used by ancient Egyptians as their North Star has just been discovered to be one part of a pair of binary stars that periodically eclipse one another, according to NASA scientists.

The team’s astronomical findings were  published Oct. 31, 2019 in the Research Notes of the American Astronomical Society (AAS). Using NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), astronomers found that from Earth‘s perspective, Thuban, and its fainter companion star, pass in front of each other (eclipse) every 51.4 days at an average distance of about 38 million miles apart.

Also known as Alpha Draconis, the star is located 270 light-years from Earth in the constellation of  Draco, the dragon , and Thuban is estimated to be five times brighter and nearly double the size of its stellar companion, and while it is not a particularly bright star to us it held a special place in the hearts of ancient stargazers.

Ancient Dragon Star of The Egyptians

Caused by the gravitational pull of the Sun and the Moon on the Earth the 26,000-year-long precession cycle determines which star is seen at the north celestial pole at any given time. Several historical sources claim Thuban lay almost exactly at the north celestial pole in the year 2787 BC and this can be confirmed with modern astronomical models. Thuban, therefore, as a part of the constellation ‘Draco’, the Dragon, lay at the fixed celestial North Pole when the Egyptians were building the pyramids.

In the 1960s, the so-called ‘air shafts’ in the Great Pyramid of Giza, that were once thought to serve for ventilation as the pyramids were being built, were found to align to the star Thuban at the north celestial pole, around which the heavens appeared to turn. And now, scientists find as the dragon star flies around the universe at a certain stage in its cycle, viewed from Earth, it is eclipsed by another star.

How Did We Miss This?

In a NASA statement, scientist Dr. Angela Kochoska, a postdoctoral researcher at Villanova University in Pennsylvania, says the first question that comes to mind is “how did we miss this?” And proposing an answer she said that the eclipses only last six hours so they are easily missed, and furthermore, the star is so bright the detectors on NASA’s  Kepler observatory would have been saturated, ‘masking the eclipses.’

Using TESS, the stellar pair’s brightness was tracked for 27 days at a time revealing that Thuban and its companion are among the brightest ‘eclipsing binaries’, which are pairs of stars that pass in front of one another, but neither star completely concealing the other, the astronomers said in a statement. And it is by observing these eclipses that astronomers hope to get a more accurate measurement of the mass and size of each star.

Precision Precession Targeting Takes Time

Discovering eclipses in a well-known, bright, historically important star highlights how TESS impacts the broader astronomical community, said Padi Boyd, the TESS project scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. In this case, the high precision  TESS data  can be used to help constrain fundamental stellar parameters at a level we’ve never before achieved, said the NASA scientist, whose forefathers in the ancient world regarded eclipses as powerful omens that foretold death and destruction.

The modern pole star, Polaris, formerly Phoenice, will get as close as it will get to the celestial north pole on March 24, 2100, but Thuban’s precision, as seen from Earth, will only be beaten by the star  Alderamin, which will take its turn at the apparently fixed north pole around 7500 AD.

Scientists Have Unlocked The Power Of Gold Atoms But Is This Technology New Or Ancient?

Published

For those who follow the stories of the ancient Sumerian tablets first discovered in the 1800s, you know that gold is central to the story. The Anunnaki, extraterrestrials from another planet, mined for precious gold in southern Africa when they arrived on Earth. The element has unique qualities that make it invaluable for many reasons; from jewellery to electrical components, to insulation used in space travel. Today, scientists have made a big leap in unlocking the potential of 2D gold, thousands of years later.

Now, researchers from the University of Leeds in the U.K. have created the world’s “thinnest gold only two atoms in thickness. It’s so thin; they consider it 2-dimensional. They say it’s a “landmark achievement” in nano-materials with potential in the medical and electronics industries.

“The previous reported thinnest unsupported 2D gold nano-sheets have a minimum thickness of 3.6 nano-meters,” Sunjie Ye, lead author of the study, told Newsweek. “Our work represents the first fabrication of freestanding 2D gold with a sub-nano-meter thickness, that is, we have brought 2D gold to sub-nano-meter scale, which is a new focus of nanotechnology.”

Newsweek noted that researcher Stephen Evan from Leeds supervised the study. Leeds remarked that the gold sheets are a vast improvement over even gold nanoparticles.

“Gold is a highly effective catalyst. Because the nano-sheets are so thin, just about every gold atom plays a part in the catalysis. It means the process is highly efficient,” Stephen Evans, a researcher from Leeds who supervised the study, said in a statement.

“Standard benchmark tests revealed that gold nano-scale sheets were ten times more efficient than the gold nanoparticles conventionally used in industry. Our data suggests that industry could get the same effect from using a smaller amount of gold, and this has economic advantages when you are talking about a precious metal,” said Evans.

According to the article, the flexible 2D gold might be used to “develop artificial enzymes” for such technologies as water filtration and improved medical diagnostic tests.

The advanced use of gold in this manner is new to science in 2020. On the other hand, if you subscribe to the story of the Anunnaki from the cuneiform tablets of Mesopotamia, it could be a throwback to technology thousands of years old. According to Ancient Astronaut theory, the Anunnaki genetically engineered the first man or “Adamu as slaves for their gold-mining operations some 450,000 years ago. The gold was needed for the technology to save the home planet, which was falling into environmental ruin.

If we put aside scepticism for a moment and consider this to be true, could humans learn how to use gold for advanced technology to save our own environment in the future?

Much of the wisdom of these ancient beings was passed along to modern humans, but why not the technology associated with gold? For example, some of the system of mathematics and measurements we still use originated in ancient Mesopotamia. Consider that the hours and minutes that define our daily lives, based on the number 60, came from the ancients.

Zecharia Sitchin (1920 – 2010), the famous (or infamous, depending on your view?) author who expounded on the story of Anunnaki for years, was quoted in the New York Times in 2010 as the paper explored his ideas. Many people consider it bunk, but to Sitchin and a growing audience, the tablets aren’t just myth but record actual events.

“This is how Mr. Sitchin explains what scientists attribute to evolution. He says the aliens’ cities were washed away in a great flood 30,000 years ago, after which they began passing on their knowledge to humans. He showed a photograph of a woodcarving from 7,000 B.C. of a large man handing over a plow to a smaller man: Ah, the passing on of agricultural knowledge. Anyway, he said, the Nibiru-ites finally jetted home in their spacecraft, around 550 B.C.”

“This is in the texts; I’m not making it up,” Mr. Sitchin said, finishing his coffee. “They wanted to create primitive workers from the homo erectus and give him the genes to allow him to think and use tools.”

Today, humans are indeed thinking and using tools, but we still clearly have far to go before we could really be considered an advanced civilization. At least the use of 2D gold seems to be another small step in the right direction.

Ancient Sumer, The Anunnaki, And The Ancient Alien Theory

Published

on

Stephen D. Foster Jr.Ancient Code

Sumer is a historical region of the Middle East, the southern part of ancient Mesopotamia, between the alluvial plains of the Euphrates and Tigris Rivers.

The Sumerian civilization is considered, according to many authors, as the first and oldest civilization on the surface of the planet, even though there is evidence that the Vinca Culture from Europe is older.

Although the origin of its inhabitants, the Sumerians, is uncertain, there are numerous hypotheses as to where they came from.

The ancient Sumerians were the first people who started building actually organized cities laid out using actual city grids like we see in modern-day cities around the world.

The ancient inhabitants of Mesopotamia invented sewer systems, cobblestones -frequently used in the pavement of early streets, and they were also taught in Agriculture, but most importantly they were the first civilization that invented the first known writing system by using the cuneiform script on clay tablets. This entire cultural and technological boom came basically out of nowhere. The biggest issue is their origin, as experts cannot agree from where these people came from.

It seems plausible that the Sumerians were a tribe that came from elsewhere, possibly from the steppes, but their exact origin is unknown. This historic issue is referred to, since the twentieth century as the “Sumerian problem.”

In any case, it is during the Ubaid period when there are advances that crystallize in the Uruk period, and that serve to consider this moment as the beginning of the Sumerian civilization.

Some scholars also postulate that the Sumerians established in Mesopotamia, would not have an autochthonous origin, but would come from the culture that founded the city of Mohenjo-Daro (which existed between 2600 BC and 1800 BC) in India.

Wherever they may have come from, they were one of the most advanced ancient civilizations to live on Earth, and history tells us many interesting facts and stories about the Sumerians. Even today experts still do not have a complete picture that could tell them everything about the people that once inhabited the region of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.

The Ubaid Period; The Start of Civilization? 

The Ubaid period (c. 6500 to 3800 BC) is a prehistoric period of Mesopotamia. The name derives from Tell al-`Ubaid where the earliest large excavation of Ubaid period material was conducted initially by Henry Hall and later by Leonard Woolley.

Divided into four main phases, and spreading from Eridu, the Ubaid culture extended from the Middle of the Tigris and Euphrates to the shores of the Persian Gulf, and then spread down past Bahrain to the copper deposits at Oman.

The First City On Earth

According to the Sumerian King List Eridu was the first city in the World. The opening line reads:

“[nam]-lugal an-ta èd-dè-a-ba

[eri]duki nam-lugal-la”

“When kingship from heaven was lowered, the kingship was in Eridu.”

As noted by Sumerian mythology, the ancient city of Eridu was ONE of the FIVE ancient cities built on Earth before the great deluge.

Eridu was the most southern city of the conglomerate of Mesopotamia and important center of the cult to the God of the water, Enki.

The Sumerian King List; When Gods Ruled The Earth

One of the most valuable artifacts discovered from the Sumerian Civilization is the so-called Sumerian King List.

This ancient text describes in great detail a time when Earth was ruled by beings referred to as ‘Gods’ for thousands of years.

The list composed in Ancient Sumerian offers details about numerous generations of kings that ruled over the land of ancient Sumer. The list not only offers us their names, but it details their supposed length and location of Kingship.

“…Alulim became king; he ruled for 28800 years. Alaljar ruled for 36000 years. 2 kings; they ruled for 64800 years. Then Eridug fell and the kingship was taken to Bad-tibira. In Bad-tibira, En-men-lu-ana ruled for 43200 years…”

The Ancient Astronaut Theory; The Anunnaki Gods

As noted by the ancient astronaut theory, thousands of years ago, even before recorded history, our planet was visited by astronauts from another world. Extremely advanced beings with technology beyond our own today came to Earth and helped kick-start modern civilization.

In the 19th century archaeologists exploring the ancient ruins of Nineveh discovered 22,000 clay tablets. After translation, these tablets showed amazing similar stories to those found in the Judeo-Christian Bible.

We find stories of the great flood in these tablets and we can even read of Adam and Eve so basically all of these stories have precedence with the ancient Sumerians.

In 1976 author Zecharia Sitchin published his personal translations of the Sumerian texts in a series of books called “The Earth Chronicles“.

According to Sitchin, the clay tablets describe an alien race known as the Anunnaki who came to Earth to mine gold.

Sitchin practically suggests that extraterrestrial visited earth in the past because their home-planet needed gold to survive. The gold deposits in their atmosphere were depleting so they came to Earth, mined old and took it back to their planet to save it.

Today, numerous authors around the world believe Sitchin was right, despite the fact that mainstream scholars completely disagree with his theories.

Ancient Astronaut theorists agree that based on numerous archaeological discoveries: artifacts, records and monuments found in the past by experts, it is believed that the Anunnaki (Sumerian: “those who came down from the heavens), an extremely advanced civilization from an elusive planet in our solar system, came to Earth, landing in the Persian Gulf some 432,000 years ago.

 Based on The Cosmic Code: The Sixth Book of The Earth Chronicles by Zecharia Sitchin, this is the real historical timeline of our planet:

Events Before the Deluge

450,000 years ago:

On Nibiru, a distant member of our solar system, life faces slow extinction as the planet’s atmosphere erodes. Deposed by Anu, the ruler Alalu escapes in a spaceship and finds refuge on Earth. He discovers that Earth has gold that can be used to protect Nibiru’s atmosphere.

445,000
Led by Enki, a son of Anu, the Anunnaki land on Earth, establish Eridu -Earth Station I – for extracting gold from the waters of the Persian Gulf.

430,000
Earth’s climate mellows. More Anunnaki arrive on Earth, among them Enki’s half-sister Ninhursag, Chief Medical Officer.

416,000
As gold production falters, Anu arrives on Earth with Enlil, the heir apparent. It is decided to obtain the vital gold by mining it in southern Africa. Drawing lots, Enlil wins command of Earth Mission; Enki is relegated to Africa. On departing Earth, Anu is challenged by Alalu’s grandson.

400,000
Seven functional settlements in southern Mesopotamia include a Spaceport (Sippar), Mission Control Center (Nippur), a metallurgical center (Shuruppak). The ores arrive by ships from Africa; the refined metal is sent aloft to orbiters manned by Igigi, then transferred to spaceships arriving periodically from Nibiru.

380,000
Gaining the support of the Igigi, Alalu’s grandson attempts to seize mastery over Earth. The Enlilites win the War of the Olden Gods.

300,000
The Anunnaki toiling in the gold mines mutiny. Enki and Ninhursag create Primitive Workers through genetic manipulation of Ape woman; they take over the manual chores of the Anunnaki. Enlil raids the mines, brings the Primitive Workers to the Edin in Mesopotamia. Given the ability to procreate, Homo Sapiens begins to multiply.

200,000
Life on Earth regresses during a new glacial period.

100,000
Climate warms again. The Anunnaki (the biblical Nefilim), to Enlil’s growing annoyance, marry the daughters of Man.

75,000
The “accursation of Earth” – a new Ice Age-begins. Regressive types of Man roam the Earth. Cro-Magnon man survives.

49,000
Enki and Ninhursag elevate humans of Anunnaki parentage to rule in Shuruppak. Enlil enraged. Plots Mankind’s demise.

13,000
Realizing that the passage of Nibiru in Earth’s proximity will trigger an immense tidal wave, Enlil makes the Anunnaki swear to keep the impending calamity a secret from Mankind.

A 5000 Year Old Aboriginal Cave Painting Of The “Wandjina.” Known As ‘The Sky Beings’

Published

Those who have gone deep into the lore associated with the UFO and extraterrestrial phenomenon are no doubt aware just how far back the phenomenon may go. Today, the UFO phenomenon is documented quite well, and it’s taken very seriously as, in the past decade alone, it’s gained a tremendous amount of well-deserved credibility. But there is also the fact that the documentation of this phenomenon dates back thousands of years, there are multiple cases outlined throughout history, and many of them you can find in Dr. Jacque Valle’s book, Wonders In The Sky. 

But how far back does “documentation” go? Discoveries of ancient cave art all over the world raise some interesting questions, especially ancient artwork in the form of cave paintings that were discovered in Kimberly, Australia. These specific paintings I am referring to were created approximately 5000 years ago by the native aborigines, and they illustrate entities that they referred to as the Wandjina, or sky beings.

According to Richard Dolan, one of the world’s leading UFO researchers,

“In the aboriginal tradition, these beings were part of the beginning of creation and had great power over nature. One of them even became the Milky Way. When looking at the haunting images of the Wandjina, it is easy to think of gray aliens: oversized heads, no hair, large black eyes, no ears, no mouth, and pure white skin. Until the modern era of UFOs and depictions of ET beings, scholars had no point of reference for the Wandjina, no way to understand why these native Australians would create God beings so radically different in appearance from themselves.” (UFOs For The 21st Century Mind)

According to Encyclopedia Britannica,

“Wandjina style, also spelled Wondjina, type of depiction in Australian cave paintings of figures that represent mythological beings associated with the creation of the world. Called wandjina figures, the images are believed by modern Aborigines to have been painted by the Wondjinas, prehistoric inhabitants of the Kimberley region in northwest Australia, the only area where cave paintings in the wandjina style have been found. Among the Aborigines, each wandjina image is renovated, or repainted, by the oldest living member supposedly descended from its originator.” (source)

Based on everything we know now, maybe these beings weren’t quite ‘mythical’ as suggested. Many scholars also emphasize that they were considered “cloud spirits.” (source)

Again, there are many such strange depictions found all over the world. For example, not long ago, more paintings were discovered by scholars in Chhattisgarh, India.

According to archaeologist JR Bhagat, these paintings depict extraterrestrials. The Chhattisgarh state department of archaeology and culture was planning to seek the help of NASA and ISRO for research regarding the paintings, that’s the last I heard about that.

“The findings suggest that humans in prehistoric times may have seen or imagined beings from other planets which still create curiosity among people and researchers. Extensive research is needed for further findings. Chhattisgarh presently doesn’t have any such expert who could give clarity on the subject. The paintings are done in natural colours that have hardly faded despite the years. The strangely carved figures are seen holding weapon-like objects and do not have clear features. The nose and mouth are missing, and in a few pictures they are even shown wearing spacesuits. We can’t refuse the possibility of imagination by prehistoric men but humans usually fancy such things.” – JR Bhagat (source)

Dolan goes on to describe many other examples in his book.

“There are many such ancient paintings on rocks and in caves around the world that depict what look like ET beings. In the northern Italian region of Lombardy, there is a rock painting dating to the Copper age, between 5,000 and 7000 years ago. It depicts apparent priests or God figures. Each of them has what appears to be a halo, except that these halos look rather more like helmets, with straight lines extending out from them.”

The Takeaway

Perhaps some of these beings are indeed ‘extraterrestrial?’ Perhaps some of these beings are still visiting us today? The realization of this seems to have occurred throughout human history, but as we discover more and become more technologically advanced ourselves, perhaps some type of global interaction is part of our future? Perhaps it has already been for beings on other worlds? Always interesting to think about, because these realizations do indeed have tremendous implications.
