In the Old Testament book of Exodus, at the time of Moses, we are
introduced to a certain Bezaleel (the son of Uri Ben Hur) who is said to have been filled with the spirit of the Elohim (the Anunnaki) in wisdom, understanding and knowledge. We learn, furthermore, that Bezaleel was a skilled goldsmith and Master Craftsman who was placed in overall charge of building the Tabernacle and the Ark of the Covenant.
In detailing how Bezaleel should manufacture various crowns, rings, bowls and a candlestick - all of pure gold - the Bible text adds to the list something called the 'shewbread' of the Covenant and, without further explanation, the deed is seen to be done.
Although the word 'covenant' has come to be identified with contractual agreements, it originally meant 'to eat bread with', and it is pertinent to note that the Christian Lord's Prayer (which was itself transposed from an Egyptian equivalent) specifies, 'Give us this day our daily bread'. This is often taken to relate to sustenance in general terms, but in the original tradition the reference was more specifically directed to the enigmatic shewbread - the golden bread of Bezaleel.
The book of Leviticus also refers to the shewbread, stating: 'And thou shalt take fine flour, and bake twelve cakes thereof ... And thou shalt put pure frankincense upon each row". The use of the word 'flour' in English translations is actually incorrect and the word 'powder' would be more accurate. The records of the mystery schools cite rather more precisely that shewbread was made with the white powder of gold, which is especially significant because it is stated in Exodus that Moses took the golden calf which the Israelites had made, 'and burnt it in the fire, and ground it to a powder'.
In this instance, the correct word 'powder' is used - but firing gold does not, of course, produce powder; it actually produces molten gold. So what was this magical white powder? Is there a way of using heat to transform metallic gold into a white powder which is ingestible and beneficial? Indeed there is, and it is here that the foremost alchemical principle of the Master Craftsmen was applied: 'To make gold, you must take gold'.
Gold is the most noble of metals and was always representative of Truth. Through the regular use of Anunnaki Star Fire (the Gold of the Gods) the recipients had been moved into realms of heightened awareness and consciousness because of its inherent melatonin and serotonin.
This was the realm of advanced enlightenment which was called the Plane of Sharon and the Star Fire gold was deemed to be the ultimate route to the Light. Hence, the heavy, mundane person (lead) could be elevated to a heightened state of awareness (perceived as gold), and this was the root of all alchemical lore thereafter.
The shewbread (or as the Egyptians called it, scheffa-food) was a traditional entitlement of the Israelite and Egyptian Messiahs, for the early pharaohs were themselves fully consecrated priest-kings of the Grail bloodline, having descended through King Nimrod in the Cainite succession.
In ancient Egypt, the scheffa-food was always depicted as a conical cake. This metallic bread was used to feed the Light body, as against the physical body, and the Light body (the Ka) was deemed to be the consciousness. As far back as 2200 BC, the pharaohs were using this supplement to enhance their pituitary and pineal activity, thereby heightening their perception, awareness and intuition - but only the metallurgical adepts of the mystery schools (the Master Craftsmen of the Dragon Court) knew the secret of its manufacture.
In the Egyptian Book of the Dead (the oldest complete book in the world), the pharaoh in search of ultimate food of enlightenment asks, at every stage of his journey, the single overriding question, 'What is it?' - a question which in the Hebrew language (as explained in The Antiquities of the Jews) was asked by the single word: Manna?
When the Ark of the Covenant was completed, Aaron was said to have placed an omer of manna into the Ark. This sacred manna was commonly associated with a mystical form of bread: the shewbread or, as it was called in Tubal-cain's Mesopotamia, the shem-an-na. At this point, we come to a particularly important definition of the shewbread for, according to the Master Craftsmen, this conically-shaped (or shem-shaped) food was made of 'highward fire-stone'.
In the New Testament book of the Revelation it is related:
To him that overcometh, I will give to eat of the hidden manna. And will give him a white stone.
Before investigating the precise nature of the white stone of the shem-an-na (the bread made from the white powder of alchemical gold), it is worth considering the famous statue of Priest-king Melchizedek at Chartres Cathedral in France. The statue portrays Melchizedek with a cup containing a stone in representation of the bread and wine which he apparently offered to Abraham, according to the book of Genesis. The wine, as we know, was emblematic of the sacred Star Fire (just as Communion wine represents the Messianic blood today), but the true importance of the imagery is that the bread/stone is held within the cup, thereby signifying that Star Fire was replaced by a substitute nourishment at the very time of Melchizedek and Abraham. This substitute was made from shem-an-na - the white powder of gold, which the Mesopotamians called 'highward fire-stone'.
The object of the substitute was very straightforward. Instead of feeding the recipient with a direct hormonal supplement, the powder had its effect on the endocrinal system (particularly on the pineal gland), thereby causing the recipient to manufacture his own super high levels of hormones such as melatonin. In the famous Middle-Age Grail romance of Parzival, by Wolfram von Eschenbach, it is said of the Temple knights of Grail Castle:
They live by virtue of a stone most pure. If you do not know its name, now learn: it is called lapis exilis. By the power of the stone the phoenix is burned to ashes. But the ashes speedily restore it to life.
The phoenix thus moults, and thereupon gives out a bright light, so that it is as beautiful as before.
Many have wondered about the name lapis exilis because it appears to be a play on words, combining two elements. Firstly, it is lapis ex caelis - meaning 'stone from the heavens'. Secondly, it is lapis elixir - the Philosophers' Stone by which base elements are transformed to higher states of being. Either way, or both, it relates directly to the highward fire-stone - the shem-an-na of the exotic Star Fire substitute.
The key to the Parzival allegory lies in the description that the phoenix is 'burned to ashes', but from those very ashes comes the great enlightenment. So, what exactly is a phoenix? It is a mythical bird, one might answer - but this would be quite wrong. The word 'phoenix' is far older than the bennu-bird mythology and it is, in fact, ancient Greco-Phoenician. Phoenix means 'crimson' or 'red-gold'.
An old Alexandrian alchemical text makes particular mention of the weight of the fire-stone - which it calls the Stone of Paradise. It states that, 'when placed in the scales, the stone can outweigh its quantity of gold, but when it is transposed to dust, even a feather will tip the scales against it'. In terms of a mathematical formula, this was written as: 0 = (+1) + (-1). This appears to be a very straightforward sum at first glance, because (+1) + (-1) does indeed equal '0'. But when applied to physical matter it is actually an impossibility because it relies upon using a positive and an equivalent negative to produce nothing.
The moment one has a positive piece of something it is not possible to add an equivalent negative of that something to produce nothing. At best, one could move the positive something out of immediate sight - but it would still exist and would, therefore, not be nothing. The only way to turn something into nothing as far as the material field is concerned is to translate the something into another dimension so that it physically disappears from the mundane environment. If that process is achieved then the proof of achievement would lie in the fact that its weight also disappears.
What then is it that can outweigh itself, but can also underweigh itself and become nothing? What then is it that can be gold, but can be fired and transposed to dust? It is the Phoenix: the red-gold that will fire to ashes, but will then be restored to enlightenment. It is the golden calf that Moses burned to a powder. It is the highward fire-stone of the shem-an-na - and the Sumerian records indicate that this was not made of stone at all, but of shining metal.
In the alchemical tradition, the Philosophers' Stone is said to be that which translates base elements into gold. This is deemed to be the case in both the metallurgical sense and in the spiritual sense of higher enlightenment. In the physical sense, however, we must return to the oldest of all alchemical rules of the earliest mystery school - and that is: 'To make gold, you must take gold'. Hence, it is determined that there are two distinctly separate forms of physical gold: the straightforward metal as we know it and a much higher state of gold - that is gold in a different dimension of perceived matter. This is the white powder of gold: the hidden manna, whose secret manufacture was known only to the Master Craftsmen.
So, what precisely is the 'highward' state which converts gold into a sweet-tasting impalpable white powder? It is that which modern science now calls the 'high-spin' state. A normal atom has around it a screening potential - a positive screening produced by the nucleus. The majority of electrons going round the nucleus are within this screening potential, except for the very outer electrons. However, the nucleus goes to the high-spin state when the positive screening potential expands to bring all of the electrons under the control of the nucleus.
Electrons normally travel around the nucleus in pairs - a forward-spin electron and a reverse-spin electron - but when these come under the influence of a high-spin nucleus all the forward-spin electrons become correlated with the reverse-spin electrons. When perfectly correlated, the electrons turn to pure white light and it is quite impossible for the individual atoms in the high-spin substance to link together. Hence, they cannot reform as metal and the whole remains simply an impalpable, monatomic white powder.
A recently conducted experiment in the USA made apparent the effect of the mystical white light in open-air conditions, without the controls of vacuums and inert gasses necessary for contained results. In this test the blaze was equivalent to many tens of thousands of flash-bulbs. It was, in effect, a explosion, but there was absolutely no blast and an unsupported pencil, which had been stood on end within the explosion, was left standing upright and unharmed afterwards. This is wholly reminiscent of the story of Moses and the burning bush as related in Exodus: 'And he looked, and, behold, the bush burned without fire, and the bush was not consumed'.
The truly unusual thing about this white powder is that, through various applied procedures, its weight will rise and fall to hundreds of percent above its optimum weight, down to less than absolutely nothing. Moreover, its optimum weight is actually 56% of the metal weight from which it was transmuted. So, where does the other 44% go? It becomes nothing but pure white light and translates to another dimension beyond the physical plane.
Another feature of the shem-an-na is that even its 56% substance (that is the remaining sample excluding the 44% light content) can be made to disappear completely from sight, moving itself into another dimension of perceived matter - and when this happens, its weight similarly disappears.
By virtue of such testing, it has been discovered that not only is the powder of the highward fire-stone capable of raising human consciousness, but it is also a monatomic superconductor with no gravitational attraction. One of the great researchers into gravity from the 1960s has been the Russian physicist Andrei Sakharov, and the mathematics for Sakharov's Theory (based on gravity as a zero-point) were published by Hal Puthoff of the Institute of Advanced Studies in 1989 (Physical Review A - volume 39, no. 5, 1 March). With regard to the monatomic white powder, Puthoff has made the point that because gravity determines space-time, then the powder is capable of bending space-time. It is 'exotic matter', he explained, with a gravitational attraction of less than zero.
Quite apart from gold, it is now known that the platinum-group metals, iridium and rhodium (in the monatomic high-spin state), also have anti-ageing properties, while ruthenium and platinum compounds interact with DNA and the cellular body. In the Scientific American journal of May 1995, the effect of ruthenium was discussed in relation to human DNA, and it was pointed out that when single ruthenium atoms are placed at each end of double-helix DNA, it becomes 10,000 times more conductive. Similarly, the Platinum Metals Review features regular articles concerning the use of platinum, iridium and ruthenium in the treatment of cancers, which are caused through the abnormal and uncontrolled division of body cells. When a DNA state is altered, as in the case of a cancer, the application of a platinum compound will resonate with the deformed cell, causing the DNA to relax thoroughly and become corrected. Such treatment involves no amputation surgery; it does not destroy surrounding tissue with radiation, nor kill the immune system as does chemotherapy. It is a straightforward cure which actually corrects altered cells.
It is of particular significance that, irrespective of all today's costly and extensive research, the secrets of the highward fire-stone were known to our ancestors many thousands of years ago, although only just being rediscovered. To put things into perspective in this regard, it is important to recognize that just about everything we now know about the life and civilizations of the distant BC years has been learned since the late 1800s. Prior to that, the Old Testament was one of very few documents of record, but the Old Testament was never intended to be an accurate reporting of history; it was actually a book of scripture designed to underpin a growing religious movement.
To some extent, just like the scriptures of other religions, the Hebrew writings were based upon mythological tradition, but since the inherent stories were never found until recently in any other documented form, the Old Testament has, for countless centuries, been treated as if it were an absolute factual truth. And so, the mythology became designated as history by governing and educational establishments, and it has been taught as such in schools and churches for the longest time.
Now we have a vast amount of original literature, enabling us to be far better informed, for any number of explanatory documents have been unearthed - documents pre-dating the original writing of Genesis by up to 2000 years. One would expect such discoveries to be welcomed with enthusiasm, but this has not been the case. Instead, they have posed severe problems and are regarded not as beneficial revelations, but as threats. What do they threaten? They threaten to undermine the one-time mythology that has been erroneously dubbed as history. How does the establishment cope with this threat? It clings on tight to the contrived history, and declares that the first-hand documents of history are mythological!
