The Real Tomb of God:
The Grail, The Ark, the Emerald Tablet, and the Forgotten Father of Mankind
Appendix


An interesting suggestion which supports the theory that the Black Sun may have been an actual object that became lodged within the Earth is supported by the 'Tristan Impact Theory' purported in David Allen Deal's The Day Behemoth and Leviathan Died. Deal believes that the crust of the Earth once covered the entire planet, but was broken apart by the impact of a giant meteor or planetoid that hurdled into the Earth. Thus, of the Earth's crust was lost, spewing out into space, where, he believes, it may have formed into our current moon. The remaining crust cracked and drifted apart, creating Earth's continents. This caused a number of cataclysms, including a worldwide deluge - not the Flood of Noah, but the first global flood, which Deal believed to be described in the first few sentences of Genesis, where the creation of the Earth by Yahweh is written of. This is very similar to the Sumerian/Babylonian tales of the creation of the Earth, which was said in their records to have been formed out of a larger world, Tiamat, after a celestial battle that sounds exactly like a description of one planet smashing into another. Deal's theory, however, differs in one important respect: instead of becoming smaller, Deal believes that Earth grew in size after the impact, because the planetoid, which he calls Tristan, actually became absorbed into the center of the Earth. Writes Deal:

"It cataclysmically excavated over half of the Earth's granite crust and embedded itself into the very core - the bowells of our planet. It remains there, in the center of the Earth, to this day. The ex-meteor - Tristan - has become the inner core of the Earth. The inner core is a solid body that is an anomaly to the solar theory; it does not belong where it resides... Additionally, this fairly recent geological incident is most likely the cause of Earth's interior heat, which has never been explained by scientists in a fully satisfactory manner."

Deal goes on to theorize, as many geologists have, that this meteor, providing the Earth's inner core, is the cause of Earth's electromagnetic and gravitational fields. Because it floats within the molten outer core, it moves easily. Therefore all of the 'polar shifts' in Earth's past can be explained as being caused by the movement of the inner core whenever it enters the gravitational field of a larger body, such as a passing comet. These descriptions of Tristan parallel precisely those of the Black Sun, which has been named as the cause of the Earth's interior heat, magnetic fields, and gravitational center as well. It is also associated with Kronos, prototype of Satan, "Lord of the Earth", who is said to have been cast out of Heaven and imprisoned in the Underworld, located in the bowells of the Earth. If the Black Sun/Tristan actually does provide the gravitaional and electro-magnetic fields for our planet, then it truly is "The Lord of the Earth", controlling all essential functions on the planet. David Talbott (mentioned in the article "The Celestial Sea and the Ark of Heaven") believes that this myth is an ancient memory of an actual celetial event - Saturn, or one of his satellites, getting knocked out of this orbit and plunging towards Earth, creating a horrible cataclysm that broke the Earth in half, much like the Sumerian Tiamat story. Talbott believes that Saturn was known as 'the brightest star in Heaven' because he was relfecting the light of the sun. the same is said of Tristan by David Allen Deal:

"Tristan glimmered with the reflection of our star Sol as it slid by, plunging toward the planetary array on a collision course that would rendezvous it with planet Earth... As the impact continued, the metallic body buried itself into the Earth's interior, but it had insuffiecient velocity to continue all the way through the Earth. It distressed the opposite side of the Earth, however, dividing the remaining plates of granite. It exerted tremendous pressures to the antipode, extruding iron, gold, and other heavy metals to the surface of what would someday become the coninents of Africa and South Amercica."

Now it may become possible to undestand one of the most well-known and ancient symbols of the occult - the pentagram, which in some stories was the geometric figure inside which Kronos was imprisoned when he was confined to the Underworld. This symbol goes back to ancient Sumeria, where it was used as a heiroglyph called the AR or UB. Traditionally called "The Plough Sign" in their culture, it had roughly two translations: "to shackle", and "to cause earth to go up" - in other words, to plough. Given what we now know, "to shackle" makes perfect sense in the context, seeing as the pentagram was acting as a "shackle", keeping Kronos in his prison, while "to cause earth to go up" may have had nothing to do with agriculture, but is in fact a reference to what happened when Kronos, or "Tristan", punged into the body of the Earth, spewing crustal and sub-crustal materials, "causing earth to go up" in its wake. The Plougn Sign, then, is a testament to this pre-diluvian clestial event. Kronos, or Enki is said to have been a "fish-god-man", a sea monster, and therefore, a dragon. Tiamat, who in the Sumerian legends, is that planet that exited before it got smashed into by a meteor, creating Earth, is also said to be a dragon, and like Kronos, is said to be imprisoned in the Underworld, "dead but dreaming", waiting for her chance to awake and return to the Earth's surface. So the Black Sun, therefore, or the Earth's inner core, can also be thought of symbolically as a dragon imprisoned in the Earth. It is interesting, then, that the lines of magnetic energy that radiate out of this core and up to the surface are called by occultists "dragon lines", the energies of which they believe they can manipulate with ritual magick. The Black Sun was also, as I have mentioned in this article, been associated with the "prima materia" stage of alchemy, which is itself associated with a dragoness or sea-monster. The Illustrated Anthology of Sorcery, Magic and Alchemy, by Emile Grillot de Givry has, in its section on alchemy, a drawing from Basil Valentin called "The Siren of the Philosophers", showing one such sea-monster crowned, and rising out of the sea, with the following description:

"Then we have the goddess, 'born of our deep Sea, who pours milk and blood from her paps'; after boiling the milk and blood will be changed into gold and silver. The 'envenomed dragon' represents that primative material, 'found everywhere and of little price,' from the mass whereof the green and red lion will be drawn."

Later on, this book reveals yet more evidence that alchemists have long associated the 'prima materia' of the Great Work with a black stone hidden deep within the recesses of the Earth - the Black Sun, also associated with Saturn. Grillot de Givry writes of an alchemical painting by Limojon de Saint-Didier. This painting features the staff of Mercury, entwined with double serpents, floating upright over a pit of flames (the interior heat of the Earth, a.k.a. "the Black Sun.") Into this flaming pit flow two underground rivers, pouring out of two crevices from a pair of twin mountains. Of these, the author writes:

"There are two caverns, one on each side of the central symbol, which are the mines of Mercury; this is the legend which relates to them: 'De cavernis metallorium occultus est, qui lapis est venerabilis' ('the thing that is the venerable stone was hidden in the caverns of the metals.') This accords with the unvarying tradition of the alchemists, who will have it that the material of the Philosopher's Stone, unknown to the profane, is a black ball which is found at a depth of a foot and a half in certain hot areas such as exist in Hungary, for example. Children play with these balls, and men disregard them, and tread on them."

He then draws to obvious connection to the alchemical motto, VITRIOL. These little black balls bring to mind something that David Allen Deal mentioned in The Day Behemoth and Leviathan Died, about some "small glassy particles called spherules" which were found in Brownie Butte, Montana in a layer of clay dated from the Cretaceous-Tertiary period. Berkely scientists suggsted that the clay layer formed after an asteroid or comet hit the Earth (which Deal believes to be his planetoid, Tristan.) Scientists assumed the spherules formed when droplets of earth, melted by the heat of the impact, cooled quickly and were strewn far afield... The particles contain magnetite, as wll as iridium and other rare elements," all consistent with the reportedly radioacive nature of the Black Sun.
