Robert Bauval's "Zep Tepi" - Egyptian Creation Myths is a good video. It summarises Hancock and Bauval's argument from The Message of the Sphinx, with some excellent new graphics to illustrate the 'as above so below' axiom of the Emerald Tablets of Thoth in the reflection of myth in the stars. The model of precession as a spinning top is useful and accurate. This work is often classified as pseudoscience, but the idea of Zep Tepi as a marker of the golden age is a very interesting and informative way to frame evolutionary history. I'm not sure how much emphasis Bauval has placed on the syncretism with Vedic wisdom of the Satya Yuga, but this presents a way to expand and explain the cosmic framework. Bauval's comparison between the Nile River and the Milky Way provides an important input to understand the Egyptian origins of Christian faith, supporting the argument that precessional code is the hidden message of the Bible. For example, the River of Life in the Bible at Revelation 22 is the Milky Way, despite church efforts of suppression. As the equinoxes now move back towards the Aquarius-Leo axis, we are symbolically seeing knowledge and will emerge as defining principles for the planet. The Egyptian veneration of Zep Tepi comes again into focus as a context for spiritual evolution, and the fragile paralysis marking the end of the Pisces-Virgo Age of analytical belief will come more under challenge. Mainstream derision of this research is to be expected. It presents a coherent and consistent new paradigm for human thought, at odds with the dominant picture of the present Age.

And a side note here is that Zep Tepi, the first time, fits into the larger picture of the second of the descending ages of the precessional cycle. That's when Orion's Belt was lowest on the horizon. And that really seems like the reasoning behind picking that time frame for Zep Tepi. We're now approaching "the last time" which is simply the opposite side of the zodiac when Orion will be at it's highest during the second ascending age of precession. I looked around to find more video footage on the rest of his "Decoding Egypt" program but nothing else came up. He also outlines "the last time" (of Al Nitak) in his books. But oddly, I haven't found any video coverage of it yet. I'll keep looking though.

The Egyptian count from creation puts Leo as the first age and Aquarius as the seventh age of the cycle. But that's counting from the second descending age of the Greek and Vedic Yuga cycles as a starting point. In any case, as time went on precession was focused in on the reversal of the Vedic and Greek Aries through Pisces annual year (which is Leo through Virgo autumnally) and so the vernal ages of Pisces and Virgo were viewed more as the first and second ages of the Great Year rather than the sixth and seventh ages counting from the more ancient Zep Tepi. That involves the precessional knowledge filtering down from the Egyptians who were focused on the age of Leo to the Greeks who were focused on the age of Pisces and all of this astrotheological information eventually getting used in the Bible writing efforts in due time. By the time the Bible writers were working with these astrotheological allegories the focus was strongly on the first and second ages of precession according to Greek standard (Aries through Pisces annually and Pisces through Aries precessionally). But it's also very interesting to note that the age of Aquarius is the axis of Aquarius-Leo which is the seventh age of precession by Zep Tepi count and the second age of precession by Vedic and Greek standard:

Egyptian = Leo > Cancer > Gemini > Taurus > Aries > Pisces > Aquarius (7)...

Greek = Pisces > Aquarius (2)...

The seven thousand year Biblical timeline could well be playing off of the seven age count from the first time to the last time by Egyptian standard. Perhaps the seven day creation is oriented around this as well. The seven visible celestial orbs happen to coincide with a seven age count between the minimum and maximum of Orion on the meridian marked at Giza and the whole thing could have passed down becoming the seven day creation account we find in Genesis, which in turn renders the seven thousand year Biblical timeline from the fall to the New Jerusalem. All of these sacred sevens playing off of one another.

And the first and second coming motif's in the NT seem to be yet another type of play on the very same ending of the long precessional time line count, but from the Vedic and Greek perspective of the precessional cycle. The Greeks were more focused on reversing the annual zodiac as they kept it (Aries to Pisces) in terms of placing the beginning of the Great Year in Pisces. Whereas the Egyptians were more focused on the Zep Tepi count starting back in the age of Leo as the beginning of the precessional count. The combination of the two perspectives of precession renders the Biblical astrotheological timeline, basically. This is actually a revisiting of what we started off discussing when you first arrived here giving your precession posts Robert. I wasn't looking at the Aries-Pisces cusp as much because I had been too busy looking at the old Egyptian precessional format and thinking that the later format was nothing more than a corruption of the former. And now after having been around and around with the Greek Vedic precessional ideas, what I had been looking at previously in Egypt is coming into a larger focus. You kept talking about Pisces as the first age and I was saying wait a minute, the Egyptians had Leo as the first age and the later Indian and Greeks changed it all around.

But the Bible writers simply took the last two descending ages and the first two ascending ages - according to Greek and Vedic thought - and arranged a timeline that spans about seven thousand years from Taurus to Aquarius. The age of Aquarius being the end of the long count. The second coming / second vernal age of the Greek and Vedic precession - which is also the seventh age since Zep Tepi - is given as the more significant time of change in the world between the first and second comings. I think that it's rather clear as to why. The whole thing points to the stellar maximum on the meridian being reached at this seventh and second world age by two different long counts. That's the major factor associated with the age of Aquarius that gives it any significance in the precession. Aside from that there's really nothing very important about that age. That's the final turning point of several precursors which marks the way back to Zep Tepi once again. When the stellar maximum is reached in the age of Aquarius an observer on the earth can see a constellation such as Orion starting to move back down towards it's minimum on the horizon once again and that marks the way back to the mythical Golden Age. Pisces kick starts the change that will manifest "in the age to come" but the change doesn't exactly happen yet in the age of Pisces. That's just the completetion of the zodiac in reverse order, not the actual stellar maximum (of Al Nitak) where the far end of the earths wobble is reached. It takes more time. The first half of the age of Aquarius completes the turning point of the earths wobble and it seems that they saw that as a time for predicting major change coming in the future:

Leo (stellar minimum observable / Zep Tepi)>Cancer>Gemini>Taurus (Pyramid era)>Aries (OT era)>Pisces (NT era)> Aquarius (stellar maximum observable)

This combines what I was looking into with the Greek and Vedic Yuga cycles in comparison to Egypt before we met, along with what I've discovered since then as we've been brainstorming into new frontiers. There are a variety of allegorical ways of counting down to the stellar maximum (of Al Nitak) that is reached during the beginning of the age of Aquarius, basically. And this is covered in "The Message of the Sphinx" by Hancock and Bauvul, although they neglect to make the strong NT connection that I've made here via my back ground with MP knowledge coming to the table. They flirt with the connection though. It isn't entirely absent. They could see that something was going on at the beginning of the common era in Christianity and the Hermetic literature that involved passing along this ancient stellar information stemming from the Giza necropolis.

Quote:
The Message of the Sphinx

In Heliopolitan theology, all these processes (destiny of world ages) were grouped together, summarized and expressed in a single image – the Bennu bird, the legendary Phoenix which at certain widely separated intervals fashioned a nest of aromatic boughs and spices, set it on fire and was consumed in the flames. From the pyre miraculously sprang a new Phoenix, which, after embalming its fathers ashes in an egg of myrrh, flew with the ashes to Heliopolis, where it deposited them in the alter of the sun-god Re. …The Egyptians associated the Phoenix with immortality.

Sources vary as to the period of the Bennu’s return, but in his authoritative study on the subject R.T. Rundle Clark mentions the figure of 12,954 years. Let us note that this figure accords very closely with a half-cycle of precession (where the full cycle, as we have seen, is 25,920 years). As such, the return of the Phoenix could be expressed in astronomical terms either as a slow sweep of the vernal point through the six houses of the zodiac – for example from the beginning of Leo to the beginning of Aquarius – or, at the meridian, as the number of years required for a star to move between its minimum and maximum altitudes about the horizon.

When considering such co-ordinates in the sky, we are immediately reminded of the Giza necropolis – of how the gaze of the Great Sphinx targets the vernal point on the eastern horizon, and of how the star shafts of the Great Pyramid lock into the meridian with machine-age accuracy. Moreover it can hardly be an accident that in the capstone or pyramidion placed on top of all pyramids was known in the ancient Egyptian language as the Benben and was considered to be a symbol of the Bennu bird (and thus also of rebirth and immortality).

…So the texts seem to invite us to attach leonine characteristics to the men of olden times, to the Ancestors, and to the Sages. …In this way they will lead us back to the trail of the followers of Horus (those following the movements of the sun) and to the notion that for thousands of years – spanning both the prehistoric and the historic periods – the members of a hidden academy may have been behind the scenes in Egypt, observing the stars with scientific rigor and manipulating men and events according to the celestial timetable…

The powerfully astronomical character of the Giza necropolis, although ignored by Egyptologists, has been recognized by open-minded and intuitive researchers throughout history. The Hermetic Neo-Platonists of Alexandria, for example, appear to have been acutely sensitive to the possibility of a ‘message’ and were quick to discern the strong astral qualities of the textual material and the monuments.

Vague memories of an astronomical ‘message’ at Giza appear to have filtered down to the middle Ages. In the seventeenth century, the British mathematician Sir Isaac Newton became deeply interested in the Great Pyramid… Later, in 1865 the Royal of Scotland, Charles Piazzi Smyth, launched an investigation into the Great Pyramid which he was convinced was an instrument of prophecy that incorporated a Messianic ‘message’.

In our own epoch – the epoch of 2,000 AD – the other extreme of the curious ‘balancing mechanism’ of Giza is about to be reached: Al Nitak today stands within a few arch seconds of the highest altitude that it will attain during its precessional cycle and the vernal point is about to drift into the constellation of Aquarius. Between the "First Time" and the “Last Time”, in other words, the skies have reversed themselves – literally flipped left to right – with Aquarius now marking the vernal equinox and Leo marking the autumnal equinox.

We wonder whether it is possible that the Sages of Heliopolis, working at the dawn of history, could somehow have created an archetypal ‘device’, a device designed to trigger off messianic events across the Ages – the pyramid age when the vernal point was in Taurus, for example, the Christic Age in Pisces, and perhaps even a New Age in Aquarius?

Of course no device is necessary. The messianic events are obviously staged by the priesthoods who have been following precession from how ever far back they have been following it. And the allegories lead to knowledge of the maximum of "Al Nitak" in Orion's Belt being reached during the Aquarius-Leo axis. The man carrying a pitcher of water in Luke 22:10 for crying out loud! The continuation of this ancient precessional myth into the NT writer efforts is rather obvious.

An alternate view is expressed here. http://ancientegypt.hypermart.net/sphinx/index.htm

Curiously I opened up another thread about this same Author Audrey Fletcher where she talks about the narmer plate and precession as well.

Funny that this all comes up right after we just entered Virgo from Leo. :wink:

Here's "The Egypt Code" by Robert Bauval on google books. The link covers Bauval talking about the evidence for Egyptian precession knowledge and what the Greeks themselves had to say about it. I'm going to do some more reading on the "Last Time" when Al Nitak reaches the meridian maximum...

The Christians making use of precession in the NT very much includes the use of putting the main emphasis on the age of Aquarius yet to come as the actual time of significant social change. The first coming wasn't oriented around an immediate social change, rather the seeding of information that is supposed to lead to future change ('And the gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached throughout the world, then shall the end come...')

The stellar meridian observation establishes the actual change in direction of the earths axial wobble far better than applying the annual zodiac as oriented to the annual spring cusp as a starting point for the Great Year, which was a latter edition coming after Egypt. The message in the NT seems to be that while at the time of the beginning of the common era the age of Pisces was considered as the first age of the Great Year through Greek and Vedic filtered influence, there is actually a more ancient long time count that places Pisces and Aquarius as the sixth and seventh ages of the Great Year that starts off from Zep Tepi which marks the actual opposite side of the earths wobble. And, viewing the Jesus allegories as astrotheological teachings about precession, it's quite obvious that the very strong and prominent references to the age of Aquarius by the character of Jesus and others reveal that the significance of "The Last Time" of Al Nitak reaching it's maximum on the meridian is a large part of the over all allegory. It would seem that whoever created these Jesus myths did so with the intention of pointing to this deeper precessional knowledge that went beyond the basic Greek oriented Pisces through Aries Great Year format that doesn't actually indicate the final turn ("Last Time") back towards the Golden Age region of the night sky.

We have the age of Pisces setting in around the beginning of the common era, the Kali Yuga hitting rock bottom around 500 CE after that, and then an eventual ascension of knowledge increasing towards the "Last Time" at which point the earths wobble can be observed to actually stop and change direction via observing the very bright and prominent stars of Orion's belt. That points to the end of the age of Pisces and the beginning of the age of Aquarius, and that's when "Babylon the Great" falls apart in the narrative, and that's when the millennium begins. Coincidentally, this NT allegory points right to the very same time frame that the Giza Necropolis seems oriented towards by use of the Leo-Aquarius axis. This very much points to Alexandrian Egyptian influence needless to say. I can only imagine that the deeper precessional knowledge of the first and last time was kept in Alexandria as of the beginning of the common era. The older Egyptian astronomical priesthood knowledge traveling through the mystery schools would more than likely be oriented around watching the night sky as the earth approached the "Last Time". Those who were aware of it would be the ones anticipating its coming and allegorizing about its coming. Those allegories about the "Last Time" taking place at the beginning of the age of Aquarius have become the usual religionist "end times" prophecies. It's just the end of a movement of the earths wobble in one particular direction which ends at the end of the 'world age' of Pisces. This is very clear with respect to the character of Jesus being made to say: "And low I am with you always, even to the very end of the age." The whole thing is set up to point towards the exact same time frame previously designated by the Egyptians as "The Last Time"...

Here is a diagram of the relation between the celestial equator and the zodiac ecliptic over the period of the Great Year. I have bent the sky map to make the equator a sine curve and the zodiac a straight line, so the constellations are not exactly to scale. The purpose is to show the limits of the position of the equator, which is constantly moving due to precession. The sine curve of the equator moves from left to right across this picture once per Great Year while the zodiac remains a constant straight line in the middle. We can see from this picture, for example, that Orion's belt (bottom middle left) will reach its northern maximum alignment with the equator in several hundred years, when the minimum point of the curve passes across it. Orion will then start to move south again, reaching about 46 degrees south in half a Great Year, 13,000 years, when Perseus (now 46 degrees north) and Scorpio's tail (now 46 degrees south) will be near the equator. The galaxy is the pair of vertical bars crossing the max and min points of the equator curve. The northern limit and southern limit lines of the equator are each 23 degrees from the zodiac, as a function of the axial tilt of the earth...

Here are pictures showing the current and future positions of Orion's belt and its amazing main nebula/star Al-Nitak against the celestial equator. My calculation is that Al-Nitak reaches its most northerly point in about 2310, ie in 300 years from now.

Picture 1: close up of Orion's Belt in year 4000 AD, showing Al-Nitak nebula. This picture 2000 years in the future shows that Al-Nitak will have passed culmination and will be headed south from the celestial equator, the horizontal line across the picture.

I've read through the preview of Bauval's "The Egypt Code" on google books, but I haven't read through the whole book yet. I need to see if he brings all of this research down through the mystery schools, to the Greeks, and finally into the Christian era making the connections we've made over the last two years. We have the only rational reason as to why the astronomer priests would want to include a second coming motif in the mythology that I've ever come across to date. And we really need to move forward from the stellar maximum event three hundred years from now to the time frame of the final battle and Lake of Fire motif in order to see what is happening astronomically at that time. We have Aquarius becoming dominant around 2150, then in about another 150 years Orion reaches it's maximum on the meridian. By 3150 the millennium is ending thus ending the 1,000 years of peace on earth part of the myth. That's when the lake of fire enters the narrative. The Dragon, Beast, and False prophet are thrown into the lake of fire at that point and so it seems probable that something in the heavens takes place around that time.

The idea of the Age of Pisces and the Age of Aquarius as enframing cultural evolution for the planet provides a basis to analyse how the messianic energy of Jesus Christ is manifest at distinct phases of the Great Year. If we take the assumption that the Age of Pisces-Virgo has the themes of belief and analysis, it suggests that the Age of Aquarius-Leo will have the themes of knowledge and will, based on the commonly used symbolic themes for these signs in the annual cycle. So, the Gospels tell of how Christ instituted an age of belief, during which his message would be spread and analysed but not understood or implemented. The message in the Bible is that the vision of Christ will finally be understood and implemented in the Age of Aquarius, with the Second Coming defining the dawn of the New Age.

The following diagram shows the cusp moments of our planetary evolution against the cosmos over ten thousand years from the Age of Gemini to the Age of Capricorn. We can see that the belt of Orion will line up with the solstice point at about the same time as the equinox point moves into Aquarius.

Image
Hence the Belt of Orion is a key marker of the Great Year, aligning at the opposite point of the Great Year with the Age of Leo in about 10725 BC as shown in this picture.

This is truly a major missing piece of the puzzle that we were bound to bump into at some point. Bauval contributes much towards trying to understand what the Egyptians were referencing which immediately stands out when looking at the later gospel allegories. The maximum of Orion on the meridian during the first half of the age of Aquarius was an important point in time when trying to forecast abrupt social change sweeping the world over. What better time to clue in on for major social change than when the earth's axial wobble motion reaches it's maximum extreme and abruptly reverses direction?

Tat, as I mentioned earlier I am reading Thoth - Architect of the Universe by Ralph Ellis. He expands on Bauval et al's Orion Correlation Theory by including Draco and Vega in the pyramid star maps. From Bauval's work we can see that the Great Pyramid intentionally corresponds to Al-Nitak, the brightest star in Orion's Belt, as part of the Emerald Tablet axiom 'as above so below'.

If the pyramid shaft pointed to Al-Nitak in 2500 BC, when Al-Nitak was about half way between high and low points in its Great Year cycle, then the shaft is likely to also point to all the stars of Orion over the course of the Great Year, from Rigel to Betelgeuse.

The wobble rate is steady, so there is no sudden shift in direction of motion at the culmination of Al-Nitak, which marks the cusp point of Zep Tepi. As I noted in my diagram above, Al-Nitak reached the point of 1800 hrs right ascension, the same as the solstice point, on 15 April 10725 BC, within the era of 10500 BC. With the Great Year period of 25765 years, the culmination of Al-Nitak should be 12882 years after its low point, ie in about 2158 AD. However, this dating is complex, as the astronomical source needs correction for precession, and shows a discrepancy against the date of greatest azimuth. I will provide a diagram of the moment when Al-Nitak reaches right ascension of 0600 hrs.

Yes, the earth is spinning like a top. But the top is moving left to right and right to left as it wobbles around in a circle. The abrupt change is the end of moving right and the beginning of moving left and vise versa. Cluing in on either side of the wobble points to a reflection of change on the earth. It's steadily moving along but it curves out a directional change when looking above. We're approaching the curve with respect to the coming of the "Last Time". An observer can see Orion stop moving higher on the meridian and then begin moving lower on the meridian, back towards Zep Tepi again. And the allegory seems to clue in on the shift in direction as viewed from the earth.

And does he link Draco to the reference in Revelation to the Dragon, Beast, and False prophet? Why do I get the feeling that the Dragon and Beast refer to Draco and the Bear (Ursa Major)? In Bauval's Egypt Code he starts off showing how the step pyramid viewing room points to Ursa Major in the north when Sirius rises in the east. He goes over how the step pyramid seems to be bent on purpose for these particular viewing reasons as opposed to some f@#ck up on the part of the builders as Egyptologists would have it. It was interesting to read about because I'd never considered it that way before. And so there's a certain meaning hinging around the Bear, which is of course a heavenly "Beast" of sorts. Now you point out that Ellis has gone beyond Bauval by including Draco and Vega. Are you proposing Draco and Vega as a possible astronomical basis for the "Dragon" and "False Prophet" of Revelation? If so then it seems like a good starting point for inquiry.

Draco, Bear, and Vega / Dragon, Beast, and False Prophet?

Quote:
Revelation 16:13-14
13Then I saw three evil (unclean) spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.

This is interpreted as three literal entities setting up for the battle both before and after the millennium as it were. So astrologically this symbolizes the period before the end of the current age just before Babylon the Great is "fallen", which happens in the next two chapters:
Quote:
Revelation 18:1-2
1After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. 2With a mighty voice he shouted:
"Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!

Then it goes over the Beast and False prophet thrown into a lake of sulfur at the end of the age:
Quote:
Revelation 19:19-20
19Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to make war against the rider on the horse and his army. 20But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.

Now we're crossing over into the age of Aquarius and the millennium where the Dragon is chained for a thousand years:
Quote:
Revelation 20:1-3
1And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. 2He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. 3He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.

Then it goes to the final battle after the millennium and before the New Jerusalem comes down:
Quote:
Revelation 20:7-9
7When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison 8and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. 9They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God's people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. 10And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

So it looks like the Beast and False prophet go into the lake of sulfur before the millennium and then the Dragon is thrown into it after the millennium. So something is happening astronomically pertaining to the "Beast" and "False Prophet" at the beginning of the age of Aquarius when Orion reaches its maximum on the meridian, and then something else happens to the "Dragon" a thousand years into the age of Aquarius.
Quote:
Revelation 21:1-4
1Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

The next event is the New Jerusalem coming down after "the old order of things has passed away." This is after the curve where Orion reaches it's maximum on the meridian during the beginning of the age of Aquarius. The big changes finally set in and the old ways dating back to the last descending half of precession are eradicated entirely. We're dealing with new ways now here in the narrative. And the curve has been in motion for over a thousand years since the end of the current age, which seems like a long time but is pretty abrupt with respect to the long cycle in which it's merely a short time. By the time we're at the New Jerusalem phase the stellar maximum has already been reached over a thousand years ago and the movement is now back towards Zep Tepi which is a journey to the Golden Age region of the sky. God is with men in the narrative now which hints strongly at the movement towards the Golden Age region of the sky where the knowledge of God is known by men according to the Great Year mythos.
Quote:
Revelation 10-21
10And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. 11It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. 12It had a great, high wall with twelve gates, and with twelve angels at the gates. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel. 13There were three gates on the east, three on the north, three on the south and three on the west. 14The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

15The angel who talked with me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city, its gates and its walls. 16The city was laid out like a square, as long as it was wide. He measured the city with the rod and found it to be 12,000 stadia[a]in length, and as wide and high as it is long. 17He measured its wall and it was 144 cubits[b] thick,[c] by man's measurement, which the angel was using. 18The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. 19The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, 20the fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.[d] 21The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of pure gold, like transparent glass.

And now all of the very obvious Great Year references come pouring out that show beyond doubt that it is precession that is being discussed in this drama. So it makes sense to investigate the astronomy programs to see what's going on with Draco, the Bear, and possibly Vega or whatever else the "False Prophet" may be referring to. The code key is right here in the above so we know that it has to do with celestial events. The task is to figure out what exactly the writers were trying to refer to.
