A Read Part 1 here: Cosmic Lessons: The Great Meteor Procession of 1913

The end of October and early November have always been dense with symbolical significance in quite a surprising number of traditions inherited from former times. We in the modern western world have seen a revival in the observance and celebration of Halloween, originating from a Celtic festival of the dead and a remembrance of ancestors who came before. As it is now constituted in its Christianized aspect, it is one third of the so-called Hallowmass Tridium, consisting of All Hallows Eve, All Saints Day and All Souls Day, lasting from the evening of October 31 through Nov. 2. Contemporary perspective deprives Halloween of any meaning beyond that of an excuse for kids to gorge themselves on candy, and now adults too, to have an excuse to dress up in costumes and party. I remember a piece that I read in Parade magazine in 2010 that exemplified this reductionist view quite efficaciously. The article was entitled “Lessons from the Great Pumpkin.” This, of course, was a reference to the make-believe character imagined by Linus in the Peanuts comic strip. This is what the author, Eric Konigsberg, had to say about Halloween.

true genius of the Great Pumpkin may be the way it sends up other holiday parables by having a character seek deeper meaning in the sole holiday that has no real lesson to teach. Is there any other day we celebrate that is as empty of moral or historical significance? Halloween exists today simply so that kids can dress up, run around after dark, eat too much candy, and scare the pants off one another.”





Robert Grant Haliburton (1831 -1901) a 19th Century Canadian author, anthropologist and antiquarian, founder of the Nova Scotian Institute of Natural Science


“. . .a new and most startling fact was discovered when I came to read over the paper I had prepared . . .it was singular that the festival of the dead amongst the ancient Peruvians was celebrated on the same day as by the Spaniards, viz. on All Souls Day, November 2nd. I had also considered this merely as a curious coincidence; but it was generally observed in November south as well as north of the equator, a fact so remarkable that it was evident that whatever could be the cause, it must be something hitherto unknown. . .”

Whatever that hitherto unknown something was that inspired this “curious coincidence” in regards to the universality of the Festival of the Dead, further researches revealed to Haliburton that the festival

“. . . is now, or was formerly, observed at or near the beginning of November by the Peruvians, the Hindoos, the Pacific Islanders, the people of the Tonga Islands, the Australians, the ancient Peruvians, the ancient Egyptians, and the northern nations of Europe, and continued for three days among the Japanese, the Hindoos, the Australians, the ancient Romans, and the ancient Egyptians.”

Haliburton made an important conceptual leap when he further observed that

“It was evident that the uniformity could not have been caused or preserved by any calendar now known to us, and that the festival must originally have been regulated by some visible sign or mark that nature had supplied to our ancestors and the Peruvians.”

This could be the only rational conclusion, unless the uniformity of traditions was, in fact, only a coincidence. But if not coincidence the question then begging to be answered is what could have been the visible sign or mark supplied by Nature to both the Peruvians and the Europeans? Haliburton questions

“how was this uniformity in the time of observance preserved, not only in far distant quarters of the globe, but also through that vast lapse of time since…the Indo-European first inherited this primeval festival from a common source?”

By invoking the idea of a “common source” Haliburton is straying into controversial territory, not only during his time in the 1860s, but today still, for a common source implies “diffusionism,” a model of prehistory avoided by most modern scholarship because it is far too suggestive of a “lost civilization.”
Haliburton referred to an unnamed old writer who asks

“why do we suppose that the spirits of the dead are more abroad on Halloween than at any other time of the year?”

Good find Loren.

The Day of the Dead is also huge in Mexico.

Considering the discussion of Taurus (and the Pleiades) and its role in ancient religion, the Mithraic 9/11 tableau, I have long wondered about the relationship of these to such as the significance of the comets and their trace meteors. Comets, until modern times have been associated with bad tidings, perhaps a distant memory of even larger events like what caused the so-called Carolina Bays crater complex some associate with the ubiquitous 'black mat' that coincides with the end of North American large fauna.

Due to the gravitational perturbations of planets, especially Jupiter, the Taurids have spread out over time, allowing separate segments labeled the Northern Taurids (NTA) and Southern Taurids (STA) to become observable. The Southern Taurids are active from about September 10 to November 20, while the Northern Taurids are active from about October 20 to December 10. Essentially these are two cross sections of a single, broad, continuous stream in space. The Beta Taurids and Zeta Perseids, encountered by the Earth in June/July, are also cross sections of the stream that approach from the Earth's daytime side and, as such, cannot be observed visually in the way the (night-time) Northern and Southern Taurids of October/November can. Astronomers Duncan Steel and Bill Napier even suggest the Beta Taurids could be the cause of the Tunguska event of June 30, 1908.[3]

The Taurid stream has a cycle of activity that peaks roughly every 2500 to 3000 years,[3] when the core of the stream passes nearer to Earth and produces more intense showers. In fact, because of the separate "branches" (night-time in one part of the year and daytime in another; and Northern/Southern in each case) there are two (possibly overlapping) peaks separated by a few centuries, every 3000 years. Some astronomers note that dates for megalith structures such as Stonehenge are associated with these peaks.[citation needed] The next peak is expected around 3000 AD.[3]

The Taurids also have more frequent peaks which may result from a heavier concentration of material in the stream, which only encounter Earth during some passes.

As Above So Below Do the Giza Monuments encode the date of the Younger Dryas comet impact? – Graham Hancock




Join Visionary scholar Randall Carlson and David Metcalfe for a journey into the Cataclysm Fields –Click Here for more information on Sacred Geometry International’s upcoming webinar: The Quest for the Cosmic Grail – Recovering the Lost History of the World


The earth was hit by a comet around 12,800 years ago with globally cataclysmic effects that brought on an epoch of devastating, cold, darkness and floods known by geologists as the Younger Dryas. For the past seven years academics have been involved in such an intense dispute about whether or not the comet impact actually occurred that the implications of what it might have meant for the story of civilisation have not yet been considered at all. But every attempt to refute the impact evidence has in turn been refuted and the case for the Younger Dryas comet is now so compelling that it is time to widen the debate. The epicentre of the impact was on the North American ice cap but other large fragments of the same object also hit the Northern European ice cap, and impact evidence has also been found as far afield as the Middle East (e.g. see point number 22 on the diagram here: http://www.grahamhancock.com/forum/HancockG12.php).

Though not yet confirmed, it is possible that some fragments may have hit Egypt and this raises an intriguing speculation concerning the ancient Egyptian cult of the Benben stone. As long ago as 1989 my friend and colleague Robert Bauval proposed in the academic journal “Discussions in Egyptology” that the original Benben stone might have been an oriented iron meteorite. You can read his article here: http://robertbauval.co.uk/articles/articles/DE14.html. I suggest it is worth re-opening this discussion to consider whether the mysterious object worshipped in the Mansion of the Phoenix in Heliopolis might in fact have been a fragment of the Younger Dryas comet that caused the global cataclysm of 12,800 years ago. Like the Phoenix, comets are objects that return again and again to our skies and it is conceivable that some fragments of the Younger Dryas comet remain in orbit and might even threaten us today.

Such speculations add new light to the strange correlation of sky and ground (see attached graphic) that memorialises the sky of 12,800 years ago in the giant monuments of Egypt’s Giza plateau where the priesthood of Heliopolis practiced their star religion. I propose that this religion — the title of the High Priest of Heliopolis was “Chief of the Astronomers” — had its origins in a lost civilisation destroyed during the Younger Dryas cataclysm, and that survivors of that civilization settled in Egypt and created a message to the future written in the language of astronomy and monumental architecture that was designed to draw attention to the exact epoch of the comet impact. I will be exploring these ideas further in “Magicians of the Gods” the sequel I am now writing to “Fingerprints of the Gods”.

Like the Phoenix, comets are objects that return again and again to our skies and it is conceivable that some fragments of the Younger Dryas comet remain in orbit and might even threaten us today.

Additional note (1): The ancient Egyptians called the Milky Way the “Winding Waterway”. The constellation of Orion was seen as the celestial image of the god Osiris, said to have brought the gifts of civilization to Egypt in the remote past in the epoch called Zep Tepi, “the First Time”.

Additional note (2) The graphic indicates the sky over Giza as it would looked early in the precessional “Age of Leo” (the period of roughly 2,160 years — between approximately 12,970 years ago and 10,810 years ago) when the constellation of Leo “housed” the sun on the Spring Equinox. Because of the phenomenon known as the precession of the equinoxes, each of the 12 zodiacal constellations takes it’s turn to house the sun during the course of “Great Year” which lasts a total of 12 X 2,160 years, i.e. 25,920 years. The alignment indicated in the graphic therefore only recurs every 25,920 years.

thx Loren,

I'm listening now to a 3 hour interview with Hancock and Carlson: http://sacredgeometryinternational.com/jre__725

They mention the Taurid's as being the likely source of the Younger-Dryas event impactor(s). And that, interestingly, all this lines up with Plato's date for the demise of Atlantis. They mentioned the Azores as being the likely location of Atlantis, and elsewhere I've seen an interesting discussion of that, that they are on a small tectonic plate that could have subsided during a major impact event.

I would be remiss if I also did not point out that near the end of the video that they have an interesting discussion of Freemasonry and how it might relate to all of this. Here, perhaps as transmitters of knowledge of what had happened long ago, what had been before, and even though current members might well have no idea of what it is they are transmitting to us today. They point out several pieces of art frequently seen that shows the most central symbols of masonry. In this they focus on two comets, and the nearby Pleiades.

They urge a more nuanced approach to the topic than is typically seen in most paranoid conspiracy discussion, and this is my personal take as well. This is not to say that, because of a possible variety of influences (such as the corrupting corrosion of time) that certain others have not seen fit to co-opt such as masonry to their selfish ends.

Thx Loren, very convincing. Makes it all the more interesting as to just what the inclusions in the Bible were really for of such as 'the Morning Star' and 'Lucifer'.
