Time Lines and Guide Lines in the Denderah Zodiac, Is it the Book of Q?

Precautionary Note: This essay was first written on May 7, 1997. Subsequent research has added significant data to the thesis of this essay. The essay was originally intended as personal research notes. The reader is, therefore, asked to be patient with the current rendition, for it has not been prepared for general browsers. The essay is not intended for publication by any other individuals. However, all are welcome to evaluate the presentation, and make comments. A short essay supplement has been prepared which may help in relating to the purpose of the temple at Crossing the Leo-Cancer Boundary.


There are many hidden messages in the spiral of the Denderah zodiac. Two of the most important are the sequence of characters through geometric patterns. One pattern is a simple spiral that grows without crossing. A second pattern results in a crossing through Pisces. These patterns represents profound differences in comprehension. The first pattern ends at the man, Orion, walking with a cock at his heel. The second pattern ends at the scepter of flint in the hand of the beast at the entrance to Pisces. Figure 29 presents the former, while Figure 30 presents the latter pattern.

Figure 29: Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, 
thou shalt deny me thrice.
(Matt 26:34)

Figure 30: Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even in this night, 
before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.
(Mark 14:30)

As told by Matthew. Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad. 31 But after that I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee. 32 Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended. 33 Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. 34 (KJV Matthew 26:31-34)

Proof of the Christian revelation being first recorded in the Denderah zodiac comes from the oldest gospel according to Mark. And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered. 27 But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee. 28 But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I. 29 And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. 30 (KJV Mark 14:27-30)

The concept of the cock crowing is an illusion to the coming of the new cosmic day, when the vernal equinox is in opposition to the top of the galaxy. Peter, being a fisherman and therefore a representative of Pisces, carries out the prophesy of the triple denial. This statement could be derived directly from knowledge of the stars and the meaning of the east fish in Pisces, as the fish of doubt. However, it is beyond the possibilities of chance that the words "before the cock crow twice" do not obtain their meaning from the ceiling monument in the chapel dedicated to the father of Western Civilization. If we use the interpretation of a single loop spiral as shown in Figure 29, the line passes the cock at the foot of the man with the scepter of flint at the end of the spiral. This message is the message of the evangelist Matthew. The cocky man with the scepter of flint is Orion, and John the Baptist.

Mark’s words, "before the cock crow twice" in Figure 30 has a substantially different meaning. His words represent the path of Ptah-Seker-Osiris. It is a path that winds around the material center, and transcends into the physical through Cancer, Gemini, Auriga, and Aries to the rational circle at the female fish in Pisces. After circling the rational circle, the path crosses Pisces back into the physical circle through the Word of God, where the headless man passes under the sacrificial lamb (Perseus). This is the meaning of the Medusa’s head. We learn most of our knowledge based upon the ability to pass academic tests. When we leave our formal school house, our rational knowledge meets the real world, and we are confronted with a physical test of what we know. Academic knowledge is insufficient to prepare us for the physical experiences of life, and we deny truth through rational, physical, and spiritual beliefs, the triple denial in Pisces. This leads to the judgment hall to determine whether we can truthfully balance our beliefs. If we do not find truth, then we become dominated by consumptive desire, and start all over again. If we find truth, then we pass through the Virgin to the Kingdom of Heaven and receive true abundance at Taurus. This line ends at the sages of the man and the beast. Maturity cannot be achieved without proper wisdom of the rational experience (man) and physical experience (beast). The staffs that these sages hold were acquired by resurrection from the spiritual death which results during rote learning in the rational academic world. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (Rev 13:18 KJV) Maturity is achieved with understanding that time is measured by the place of the vernal equinox, as proclaimed in the wonderful Christmas song; "We three Kings of Orient are; Bearing gifts we traverse afar, Field and fountain, moor and mountain, following yonder star. O star of wonder, star of night, star with royal beauty bright, Westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to thy perfect light." Light, fire, and truth are spiritual perfection at the AW. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.9 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.14 (John 1:9 &14 KJV)

The Gnostic gospels, of which John is one, incline toward the crossing passages, for they accept the death and resurrection as essential to life. The synoptic gospels are just that, synopses of the complete story of the Book of Q. They are the gospels upon which the Piscine traditions were be founded. The Gospel of John and Revelations are written for the adept who chooses to analyze what is happening. They all speak of a new beginning. When will that new beginning occur? In the transfiguration miracle verses of Matthew and Mark the time is give as when the "Son of man be risen again from the dead." (Matt 17:9 Mark 9:9 KJV) In the verses quoted above, Matt 26:31-34 and Mark 14:27-30, it is when the cock crows that "I will go before you into Galilee."

There is far too much evidence in these interpretation, not to attempt to determine the time the founding fathers of the Age of Pisces intended to be the moment of the AW. Table 1d presents the calculation for the time of the cock and man. Since the stone was designed in 561 B.C., we use the precessional rate at that time and obtain 1996 as the  date of the AW! If we assume that a one pixel error is possible in the estimation of the X coordinate, the date could be 1991.5 to 2000.5. That is a variance equivalent to 1.5 hours on the scale of a 365 day year. We celebrate the New Year for a full day, not counting weekends and the half day before New Year. On that scale, we should be celebrating the AW moment for a period of 72 years, or the time it takes for the vernal equinox to move one degree westward.

Astrologers have been announcing the false arrival of the coming of the Age of Aquarius for most of a century. Of course they are not prepared to celebrate the Coming of Day, for they ignore the First Time of precession. Aquarius will not arrive until 2130 at the earliest using the astrologers calendar of 2160 years per zodiac house. Using astronomy programs and the modern designations for constellation boundaries, we can anticipate the following events.

Precessional Timing for the Coming Age
Year Event
1991-2000 Vernal Equinox Passes Lowest Location in Galaxy
2027 Autumn Equinox Meridian at East Boundary Line of Leo
2060 Vernal Equinox Meridian on East Boundary of Aquarius
2207 Autumn Equinox Meridian Crosses Denebola in Leo
2330 Vernal Equinox Meridian at East Edge of Aquarius Asterism
2437 Autumn Equinox Enters Leo from Virgo
2600 Vernal Equinox Crosses into Aquarius
2840 Vernal Equinox Meridian at West Boundary Line of Pisces
3300 Vernal Equinox Meridian Moves out of Pisces
3400 Vernal Equinox First Crosses Aquarius Asterism

It is not likely that there will be any celebration for the transition of the equinoxes out of Pisces and Virgo, just like the transition of the summer solstice out of Gemini into Taurus was ignored in 1989. In that year communism in the Soviet Union came to an end, as desire for world consciousness overcame the idealism of communism. They had sustained an idealistic nightmare for seventy two years, nearly three times the duration of the Aten regime. As long as people keep looking for a savior, they will fall into the pits of Jonah. And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet. For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation. (Luke 11:29-30 KJV)

Salvation is clearly shown as the pathway over and under the Tree of Life. Either the way of the champion or the way of the hero results in salvation. Waiting will postpone salvation for another generation. Conforming will eliminate the need for salvation, while the soul is lost at sea. Ultimately the sign of Jonas is the morning star. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. (Rev 2:26-29 KJV) I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. (Rev 22:16 KJV)

All of these messages declare that the cycle shall go as the Ancient Egyptians declared. Judgment day will come at the end, when the Ancient of Days will mark the place of the morning star, there the cycle will end and begin again. A new day will come forth, along the path of the precession of the equinoxes. Those "Sons of Light" who believe in the passing of the seasons should consider the caution given by the Prophet Mohammed. Woe on that day to the disbelievers who deny the last Judgment! None denies it except the transgressors, the evil-doers who, when our revelations are recited to them, cry: ‘Fables of the ancients!’ (Koran 83:9-12) When the sky is rent apart, obeying her Lord in true submission; when the earth expands and casts out all that is within her and becomes empty, obeying her Lord in true submission; then O man, who labour constantly to meet your Lord, shall you meet Him. He that is given his book in his right hand shall have a lenient reckoning and go back rejoicing to his people. But he that is given his book behind his back shall call down destruction on himself and burn in the fire of Hell; for he lived without care among his people and thought he would never return to Allah. But his Lord was ever watching over him. (Koran 84:1-13) It should be clear from these words that the Prophet understood the inscriptions along the celestial vault.

And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; (Rev 5:1-3,5-9 KJV) When the experience of returning from death find a home in the living body, the soul is released from its bondage, for the seven spirits of God are known.

And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, and cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. (Rev 10:1-3 KJV) John is providing undeniable evidence that the celestial book is the Book of Q. His angel that holds the book is the Egyptian father Ra, as well as the Patriarch Abraham. But most of all it is a book written in the stars.

For what is a book if not the message. It is not the substance of the book, for they are processed wood, ink and carbon stains. Astronomers look toward the stars with the constellation boundaries still intact, and declare that Ancient Fables as superstition. It is easier for them to believe their mathematics than it is to believe their eyes. Who has the capacity to write messages on the celestial walls, if not He who caused there to be celestial walls? Certainly no king who walked in the flesh. Their mathematics say that the universe is expanding after some colossal Big Bang occurred eight to twelve billion years ago. This event began a creation from an infinitesimally small space to encompass a universe over 24 billion light years in diameter. They manipulate their own numbers to allow them to understand how it is that their theories can verify the existence of stars within galaxies that are older than the universe which spawned them. Not even the scientist can accept that concept.

The problem lies in the initial assumption that light has an infinite life span. When the infinite life assumption is made, look at how beautifully the equations turn out. We can date any star we see, as well as how far away it is based upon it color shift to the red side of the spectrum. This redshift phenomenon was first credited to Edwin Hubble sixty years ago. However, Hubble also believed that it was possible for light to have a finite life span, and the redshift could be due to the light coming closer to the end of its life.

As it turns out, there is an eloquent and simple set of equations that perfectly describes the decay of light energy over time. In 1995, S. A. Milianowicz published a book titled Redshift Connection. His theory obeys all the known laws of physics, including the observation that no energy in the universe can communicate through space faster than the speed of light, and all energy is conserved. It was the speed limit problem that held up most analysis of gravitational effects on the energy dissipation in a photon of light. Since light is generated by the conversion of a non-radiating source, any gravitational effect outside the light could not be affected by the light, or else the information in the gravitational field would have had to move faster than the speed of light. A galaxy which is one light year away from the originating point of the light could not pull the light with its gravity, because that would mean that the effect on its gravitational field, and its energy, would be occurring faster than the speed of light. What Milianowicz’s equations show is that light can only be effected by gravity on the mass of the photon within the gravitational field from which the light came. That is equivalent to saying that the source gravitational field will always pull on the photon in proportion to the mass of the photon, and opposite to its direction of motion. If light has an infinite time span, then the work done against the photon’s gravitational field would eventually exceed the energy which was inherent to the electromagnetic radiation energy of the light. This disobeys the law of conservation of energy. However, if the work done against the photon’s gravitation field is taken from the electromagnetic energy in the light photon, then the frequency of the light would have to decrease.

Light photon energy is equal to a constant (Plank’s constant) times the frequency of electromagnetic radiation. The only variable is the frequency, therefore, light which ages slows down. Not a totally alien concept to a human. A universe made up with finite life light will have a boundary beyond which no visible light can pass. When the light becomes so old that its frequency drops below the frequency of electromagnetic radiation, the light ultimately is grabbed by gravitational fields in adjacent stars and is consumed into the stars orbital mechanics.

As an example, lets assume that light slows down to the point of transition back to matter in 25 billion years. Any galaxy which is 30 billion light years away from the light source will never witness the light energy, or in human terms the light cannot be seen. It is possible to have a completely unknowable universe beyond the life of light. To the rational mind, this unacceptable. The rational mind wants to define all existence in rational terms. If the universe were 80 billion years in diameter, and the observer were at the center of the universe, then the observer could only see 1.5% of the total universe.

The universe could be ageless, without a beginning or an end. And yet everything we know about our universe says that all the components lives are cyclical. A star is born and is consumed. Animals are born and consumed. Light is born and consumed. If the universe is composed of cyclical components, then the beginning must be a location on the cycle. That location if called the A point. Conversely, a cyclical universe has and ending point called the W point. In order for the universe to be cyclical, the W point is followed by the A point. And a full cycle is identified by the changes from A to W, or I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. (Rev 1:8 KJV) 

The following is the last paragraph in Redshift Connection by S. A. Milianowicz. "In any event, it should be very clear to those who are not blinded by arrogance, that today’s state of science, technology and, above all, that of human intellect is totally inadequate to provide a rational explanation of the mystery posed by the existence of our universe." Milianowicz is correct in his assertion that the rational intellect cannot fathom the depths of existence. However, it is an open book to those who can fathom the heights of existence with the wisdom of the heart.
