I read an interesting paragraph in a book of mine to later find after research that is it true. This is well worth the read; I promise! My (short) journey begins in the book Behold a Pale Horse by William Cooper, a Briefing Team Member of Naval Intelligence during the 70's. The book is a compostion of his findings and leaked conspiracy information to the public . Under the chapter Secret Societies he states:
' According to many, the great pyramids were built to commemorate and observe a supernova explosion that occured in the year 4,000 B.C. Dr. Anthony Hewish, 1974 Nobel Peace Prize winner in physics, discovered a rhythmic series of radio pulses which he proved were emissions from a star that had exploded around 4,000B.C. The Freemasons begin their calendar from A.L., "Year of Light," found by adding 4,000 to the modern year. Thus 1990 + 4000 = 5990 A.L. George Michanowsky wrote in The Once and Future Star that 'The Ancient Sumerian cuneiform...described a giant star exploding within a triangle formed by...Zeta Puppis, Gamma Velorum, and Lambda Velorum... located in the southern sky.. [An] accurate star catalogue now stated that the blazing star that had exploded within the triangle would again be seen by man in 6000 years" According to the Freemason's calendar it will occur in the year 2000, and indeed it will.'
Here is a Masonic site I found that shows full details of this concept, or their belief:
Well, appearantly it hasn't happened yet, at least not full-fledged. But I did a little research and found a few other dates here.
James Ussher deduced that the first day of creation began at nightfall preceding Sunday October 23, 4004 B.C., in the Proleptic Julian calendar, near the autumnal equinox. Lightfoot similarly deduced that creation began at nightfall near the autumnal equinox, but in the year 3929 B.C.
Ussher's propesed date of 4004 B.C. differed little from other biblically based estimates such as those of Jose Ben Halafta (3761 B.C.), Bede (3952 B.C), Ussher's near contemporary Scaliger (3949 B.C.), Johannes Kepler ( 3992 B.C.), or Sir Isaac Newton (4000 B.C.) Ussher's specific choice of starting year may have been influenced by the widely-then-held belief that the earth's potential duration was 6,000 years ( 4,000 years before the birth of Christ and 2,000 after), corresponding to the six days of Creation, on the grounds that "one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousands years as one day" (2 Peter 3:8). This view has been almost completely abandoned by 1997, six thousand years after 4004 B.C.
But when going by other days in above theories, we may have yet to approach this next 'Year of Light'. I then began to look for any signicant Intellectual happenings around the year 4,000 B.C. and in Sumer of the ancient Sumerians ( Home of the Annunaki). I found:
Sumer (from AkkadianŠumeru; Sumerian ↠ₗ₠ ki-en-ĝir approximately "land of the civilized lords" or "native land" .Sumerian civilization took form in the Uruk period (4th millennium BC), continuing into the Jemdat Nasr and Early Dynastic periods. It was conquered by the Semitic-speaking kings of the Akkadian Empire around 2270 BC (short chronology). Native Sumerian rule re-emerged for about a century in the third dynasty of Ur (Sumerian Renaissance) of the 21st to 20th centuries BC.
I then decided to look at what the Urak period entailed:
The Uruk period (ca. 4000 to 3100 BC) existed from the protohistoric Chalcolithic to Early Bronze Age period in the history of Mesopotamia, following the Ubaid period and succeeded by the Jemdet Nasr period. Named after the Sumerian city of Uruk, this period saw the emergence of urban life in Mesopotamia. It was followed by the Sumerian civilization. The late Uruk period (34th to 32nd centuries) saw the gradual emergence of the cuneiform script and corresponds to the Early Bronze Age.
... and then the period/era before it >
The Ubaid period (ca. 6500 to 3800 BC) is a prehistoric period of Mesopotamia. The tell (mound)Coordinates: 30°58′N 46°05′E / 30.967°N 46.083°E / 30.967; 46.083 of al-`Ubaid (Arabic: العبيد) west of nearby Ur in southern Iraq's Dhi Qar Governorate has given its name to the prehistoric Pottery Neolithic to Chalcolithic culture, which represents the earliest settlement on the alluvial plain of southern Mesopotamia. The Ubaid culture had a long duration beginning before 5300 BC and lasting until the beginning of the Uruk period, c. 4000 BC. The adoption of the wheel and the beginning of the Chalcolithic period fall into the Ubaid period.
Therefore something major did happen around 4,000 B.C. Humanity had advanced, at least in that area, suddenly from the wheel to cuneiform. That's a major leap, I believe!!!
I would love to hear your thoughts on this! <3<3<3 much Love, Jeyn
