A SECRET ANUNNAKI RETURN – Stargates, End-Times & Hidden Keys of the Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible

“When examining thousands of years of esoteric lore it becomes evident that after love, money and material power, the apocalypse or opening gates to unleash some primordial force into the world is the next most common effort made by magick-users throughout the ages. For every magician of order and harmony there is a warlock of chaos and discord. For every divine name or Tetragrammaton there is that coveted unspeakable word (or vibration) believed to undue all systems of the material world: the Uncreation, as some call it. Even hidden in the infrequently touched crevices of Enochian magick and Kabbalistic lore such teachings exist.” –Joshua Free, in his introduction essays to the “Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible” (now available as a 10th Anniversary Seventh Edition).

NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE
(10th Anniversary Seventh Edition)

According to our “Book of Star Gates” [Tablet B] there is a correlation…

“…between these ‘Gates’ and the ‘Seals of the Apocalypse,’ or that is to say the ‘Armageddon Clock’ of humanity that has been set forth…the Earth Planet and local system moves through it’s own initiatory ‘Ladder of Lights’ and the finality of this coincides with the opening of the ‘Quadrangles,’ meaning the ‘Gates’ of the ‘Four Corners’ of the Universe – to the outside! These Gates do not open all at once but instead ‘swing wide’ gradually over time…”


NO ROOM FOR THE WICKED – IN THE ANUNNAKI “NEW AGE”
an-un-na-ki ti-i-ru u na-an-za-zu
May the Anunnaki Return and Be Established!

In spite of dark connotations falsely enshrouding these mysteries in the “outer world” — Most practitioners drawn to this path are not sympathetic to the destruction and malignant energies manifested by the “human” population on the planet. [A species correctly dubbed by T.H. White as “homo ferox” in his “Book of Merlyn”].

(It is this very malignant, vicious and violent nature of “humans” that forced the Anunnaki to leave earth in the first place – as did many now otherworldly races that have fled the sheer numbers and crude weapons of humans. Beings that once physically cohabited with humans on earth!)

It seems to some that the only solution to protect the integrity of “the Big Picture,” even beyond the next “seven generations,” requires reincorporation of original source powers that originally brought this all into being at its inception. Whether or not this energy can actually coincide with the current human systems in place – becomes the last of our concerns.


THE MAGIC “BEHIND” THE MAGICK

NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE
10th Anniversary Limited Edition

It would seem that the contemporary New Age community, that is self-proclaimed as “enlightened” too often misses the liberation of the era shift, for they quickly replace one system for another. The ‘divinity’ that once communicated regularly with priests and sages of the ancient world left us with clues. These clues are reinterpreted today as either blatant fantasy or as yet another mirror of Christianized divinity with “mythological” names and attributes. The more effective ritualists and wizards of the current era have not succumbed to the same when discussing matters of “gods” and “spirits.”

Consider even these words of Aleister Crowley:
“My observation of the Universe convinces me that there are beings of intelligence and power of a far higher quality than anything we can conceive of as human… and that the one and only chance for mankind to advance as a whole… is for individuals to make contact with these beings. …Our work is therefore historically authentic; the rediscovery of the Sumerian tradition…”

And so it seems quite different then the average New Ager’s perspective of the “spirit world,” discarnate ancestors and other entities bound to a book of spells, that leading members of this movement throughout the ages have understood that it is the contact with these specific beings, Gatekeepers to our Universe (and perhaps even our Creators as the most ancient lore would have us understand), which makes up the true and coveted magick of the ages, the very keys to our universe and material existence…

Mardukite 10-Year Anniversary Celebrated with Legendary Books and Tomes of Magick by Joshua Free


FOR TEN YEARS the “Mardukite Truth Seeker Press” has delivered an aggressively refined methodology for the new ‘NexGen’ breed of eclectic esoteric seekers as “Mardukite Babylonians” — reviving the banner name of the first spiritual and political rebels in history, those who rose up against the Enlilite Sumerians in seemingly prehistoric Babylon, but in fact they are the times that literally defined history, the oldest true writing system (cuneiform) and systems of human civilization that have grown and advanced since then but are very much present among us today.

Modern “Mardukite Babylonians” study the nature of these things among many other aspects of magic, mysticism and metaphysics (beyond the realm of Mesopotamia and Ancient Near East) with the MARDUKITE.COM and NECROGATE.COM sites dedicated to publications of “Mardukite Truth Seeker Press” celebrating the incredible underground literary work and prolific prodigious contributions of Joshua Free (also known as “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990’s). Since childhood, Joshua Free has dedicated his entire life to the archetype of legendary books and tomes of magick – those such as the Necronomicon and Book of Pheryllt.

After being received into the library and self-made traditions of hundreds and even thousands of mystical, metaphysical and “New Age” practitioners since the mid-1990’s – writing under the name of “Merlyn Stone” for such popular underground publications as THE SORCERER’S HANDBOOK (now available in a commemorative 20th Anniversary) – Joshua Free is most famous for the inception of the modern “Mardukite” movement with the release of ARCANUM: THE GREAT MAGICAL ARCANUM on the Summer Solstice (June 21) 2008 (now observing its 10th Anniversary).

The Mesopotamian-oriented faction of active researchers and esoteric mystical practitioners known as the “Mardukite Chamberlains” was later solidified with the original volume of the ‘Mardukite Core’, best known as the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE (edited by Joshua Free). [Other anthologies edited by Joshua Free for the ‘Mardukite Core’ include “Gates of the Necronomicon,” “Necronomicon Grimoire,” “History of the Necronomicon” and “Secrets of Sumerian Language.”]

Coinciding with the 10th Anniversary of the “Mardukite” tradition is the early-release of the 10th Anniversary (Seventh Edition) of Joshua Free’s complete NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE tablet anthology – inspired by the aura of what it is named for, but wholly based in historical records that completed work that former manifestations only seemed to allude to (in the Mesopotamian context). For example, previous serious practitioners realized the Simon recension was incomplete at best, alluding not to the Enlilite traditions common to the “Sumerians,” but rather to the “Mardukite” tradition raised by ancient Babylonians in honor of Marduk, firstborn son of Enki, ruler of men and gods from his shrine-temple ziggurat in Babylon, the Tower of Babel.

The range of work by “Mardukite Chamberlains” leading up to the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE included lengthy discourses with other researchers, unceasing hours in abandoned corners of old libraries and museums, participation in sessions with other practicing occultists and even visits to “artifact rooms” and “tablet collections” at the University of Pennsylvania and Chicago among others, including the library and museum at Rosicrucian Park.

The resulting culmination became nothing like anyone expected: an authentic and verifiable vision for the “Mesopotamian Necronomicon” salvaged from the shifting desert sands of time in the Middle East and Egypt, unparalleled by anything already available to Truth Seekers. It appeared to be the most complete collection of ancient writings on the planet that formed the very foundation of all the human traditions and beliefs that would emerge thereafter. “Mardukite Truth Seeker Press” spent 2009 through 2012 dedicated to perfection and enhancement of NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE materials, newly revised and updated for the 10th Anniversary Seventh Edition to be the most accessible, complete and economical edition in the history of the modern “Mardukite” legacy.

This famous “Mardukite” version of the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE edited by Joshua Free, is not Lovecraftian or Simonian (while it could possibly serve to offer validity to proponent materials from both sources for those who seek it), neither is it “dangerous” or a “hoax” (though those who fear the revelation of these truths for the world will think it the former and label it the later). Thousands of people have now discovered that Joshua Free’s NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE is the single most ancient and pure unaltered lore concerning the hottest topics of our time and all times, including divinity, creation, human origins, aliens, religion, pantheistic magickal traditions, alternate dimensions, portals and the afterlife. He explains: – “In this new millennium of uncertainties, it is most likely that the uncovering of the past will reveal our future.”

Merlyn Stone
(Joshua Free)

Although now best known for his work on Sumerians, the Anunnaki and Babylonian Tradition for the “Mardukites,“ work and involvement by Joshua Free with the Secret Dragon (Elven) Legacy and modern Pheryllt Druid Tradition is also paramount. In addition to his own collected works anthology — THE DRUID COMPLEAT comprised of “Book of Elven-Faerie,” “Draconomicon” and “Book of Druidry” — his writing has even been used within the third volume completing the classic bestselling ‘Merlyn Trilogy’ by Douglas Monroe: THE DEEPTEACHINGS OF MERLYN published by Kima Global Books in 2011. Kima has also agreed to publish Joshua Free’s forthcoming BOOK OF PHERYLLT ‘Druid Source Book’ anthology later this year, further making our Anniversary year truly a pivotal year indeed!

Greatest Occult Classic of 21st Century now available as a two-volume set for 10th Anniversary | Arcanum by Joshua Free

Commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the single volume ‘blue cover’ edition (also available), Joshua Free’s classic ARCANUM materials are now more accessible than ever — available in installments as a two volume ‘red cover’ edition set!


ARCANUM by Joshua Free is a unique literary contribution toward harmonic unification of knowledge receiving many names through the ages: magickal, occult, pseudo-scientific and now, even quantum. The rise of technology and the recent “information age” has provided a wellspring of metaphysical lore, but it is not mutually synchronous with other knowledge or even other New Age systems, often due to vocabulary use.

“New Agers” separate their sects and factions in the same manner as the scientists and the religious officials, and we (as a society) have not been progressing towards global unity. All of our developments and paradigms of truth continue to grow and prove themselves only when isolated within the system in which they were designed. This all changes when taking the “wide-angle” approach to the whole picture — the entire systematic gestalt of the metaphysical universe explored in ARCANUM.

ARCANUM : The Great Magickal Arcanum by Joshua Free

This innovative presentation requires that YOU have immediate access to supplemental information on any given facet of related knowledge. This is indicated in the text by the appearance of “links” or bold-faced type that prompts YOU to explore other specific parts of the book for additional clarification. This design allowed the author the ability to cover more topics in a tighter space without having to be unnecessarily repetitive in reprinting the more common aspects. ARCANUM is not to be mistaken as simply another “A-to-Z Encyclopedia of Magick” or a superficial discourse concerning “where science and magick meet.” In fact, this text was not written for the true beginner in mind and its scope surpasses practical magick alone.

ARCANUM has no specific starting point, allowing it to be integrated into any personal background or developmental stage. With sufficient time, study and practice, the seeker works through the entire body of knowledge, beginning first with the facets of individual fancy and inclination, and then continuing on with the remainder of the entangled material, which you will find to be coherently interconnected, not simply clumped together to make a massive series. By presenting this primer of a new standard model of the mysteries, any individual, couple or study group can find the ease of using this global” system in spite of prior personal religious, spiritual, philosophical, scientific and academic background or accomplishments!

Ancient Mardukite Prophecies Fulfilled! 2017 New Year, New Babylon Rises! Nabu Gate & Marduk Temple

templemardukbanner

“In my city of Babylon — the Gateway of the Gods — my prophet-son resides, my hand he grasps. The King & Prophet enter as New Babylon Rises. In my city before me, my Temple shall be erected anew. In my city — in my temple — the ‘Temple Like a Mountain’ shall be renewed. The Dur-An-Ki plans are set. Until the End-of-Days, I shall be there in the ‘House in the Heights’ and at the End-of-Ages, my Stargate will be opened…”
–The Marduk Prophecies c.2017 BC

templemardukmodel Many chronicles exist of ancient Mesopotamia from cuneiform tablet annals and interpretations brought to the public from the Mardukite Research Organization & Publishing Group… but our efforts have never been restricted to purely academic or literary ventures. Complimenting the offbeat off-the-wall approach taken by our official spokesman, NABU JOSHUA FREE, our unique non-secular non-sectarian “organization” has conducted many esoteric occult and covert “experiments” in global reform, blatantly since 2008.

One such cumulative effort is the reestablishment of a New Babylon Rising — and here we are in the 40th Year of the New Age of Marduk (begun in 1977). We are in the same circumstances now, in 21st Century AD as we once were in the 21st Century BC and above all, the prophetic raising of the Marduk Temple and Nabu Gate for a New Age — a New Babylon Rising — is now upon us!

JUNE 2016Summer Solstice and 8th Anniversary of Mardukite Ministries — a late-model winnebago RV was obtained by the Mardukite Research Organization from SF Bay (Cali) to establish a mobile office for the Mardukite Publishing Company in addition to the NABU GATE & LIBRARY to a very real and physical MARDUK TEMPLE SANCTUARY for a New Babylonian Rising.

And this is only the beginning…

templemardukconstruction1

Mardukite Spokesman, NABU JOSHUA FREE and domestic partner CyberVamps DJ KYRA KAOS spent the entire Summer 2016 reconditioning the interior and exterior of the Mardukite RV to meet personal specifications for the Mardukite Office and the aqua blue hue appearance expected of a Marduk Temple.

templemardukshowcase During this reconstruction, citizens of Englewood Colorado and the EPD (Englewood Police Department) were less than tolerant of our work, in spite of our civic respectfulness. At one juncture, JOSHUA FREE was threatened by Englewood Police Department with imprisonment if the Marduk Temple were found on Englewood streets again. In spite of the posted signage indicating the work as a World Heritage Project, this fascist trend is expected to rise in Colorado as the influence of Denver’s Urban Camping Ban spreads.

Plans are still being developed for the NATIONAL MARDUKITE NEXGENCON scheduled for the August 2017 eclipse at Carhenge, Nebraska following a Wizards of the Wasteland spiritual retreat in the South Dakota Badlands. The Mardukite Nabu Gate & Temple of Marduk is expected to be the centralized icon of this event.

Further plans are in development for 2017 to acquire rural land designated as a NexGen Sanctuary for the future New Babylon Rising and of course, the Marduk Temple. The emphasis and purpose of this Sanctuary is to provide for the continued existence of Mardukite Chamberlains activities and survival of the Library of Nabu-Tutu archives for posterity.

TODAY… A NEW BABYLON is RISING!

Mardukite Research Organization & Publishing Group : 2016 Year-in-Review | New Babylon Rising eZine

NBRheaderSMALLnotuse

MARDUKITE YEAR-8 (2016) proved monumental in furthering the work of the Mardukite Research Organization and distribution of Mardukite Truth Seeker Press titles all over the world!

cybervampscollectionsmall Following the revolutionary CyberVamps debut volume in 2015, THE VAMPYRE’S BIBLE, the Beltane 2016 release of CYBERNOMICON completely reevaluated the complimentary synchronicity of the complete works of modern mystic and hybrid messenger Joshua Free — whether dubbed “Mardukite” or “CyberVamp” or “Systemology,” (etc.) the bigger picture for our times has become clearer than ever before!

pherlytcoll23 Continuing the widely anticipated and highly controversial Books of Fferyllt series first introduced with volume one of the BOOK OF PHERYLLT in 2014 with an emphasis on the “Dragon” in history, magic and human consciousness, Pheryllt neodruid initiate Joshua Free provided the second installment BOOK OF PHERYLLT in time for Samhain 2016. It emphasizes the secrets of “Tree Ogham” and herbalism in druid tradition. (Both the CYBERNOMICON and PHERYLLT VOL 2 were first published as limited edition hardcovers for Mardukite Chamberlains prior to paperback release.)

2016reissuecollectionsmall As it turned out, 2016 was a banner year for “Anniversary Editions” commissioned by the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press commemorating long-standing underground occult classics developed by Joshua Free, dating back to his years writing under the name “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990s.

DRACONOMICON, first published underground in 1996 for the Mystics of the Earth (Draconic Celtic Lodge of Druids) celebrates its 20TH ANNIVERSARY this year! This original classic by neodruid Joshua Free predated the authors more recent official work with New Forest Centre of Douglas Monroe and the Books of Pheryllt literary series.

JOSHUA FREE’s unpublished manuscript titled “Applied Druidology” in 2001 served as reference material for later works including “Book of Elven-Faerie” and “Arcanum.” It appeared underground under the title “Druidry” in 2012 and has now been re-released to the general public for its 15TH ANNIVERSARY edition as the THE BOOK OF DRUIDRY, complimenting a growing line of pocket eco-editions from the Mardukite Publishing Group.

BoZthumbcvr In addition to the CyberVamps and Pheryllt Druid paradigms, the Mardukite-specific work from Mesopotamia also saw restoration this year, including a new 5TH ANNIVERSARY pocket eco-edition of the ceremonial guide to the Babylonian Akitu New Year Festival in the BOOK OF ZAGMUK BY NABU. Furthermore, a new edition of the “Book of Sajaha the Seer” reappeared as the LOST BOOK OF SHAYAHA.

UR OF ANTIQUITY – How to Play the Royal Game of Mesopotamian Sumerians (British Museum replica acquired by Mardukites)

NBRheaderSMALLnotuse

THE MESOPOTAMIAN GAME OF UR was lost to the modern world until its excavation from the ancient Sumerian city of UR in the 1920’s, for which it is named after. It rivals the African “Mancala” as the “oldest game in the world.” Its discovery is credited to the British Archaeologist Sir Leonard Wooley when he unearthed an incredible hoard of ancient art pieces for the British Museum and University of Pennsylvania.

wp_20161015_22_57_42_pro THE GAME OF UR “boards” were found in the graves of kings, members of the royal court and priest-magicians who controlled the systemology of Sumerian/Mesopotamian society – the “cradle of modern human civilization.” As a result academicians have also consider “UR OF ANTIQUITY” to be a “Royal Game” of ancient Sumer. The game later appears among royalty and priesthoods of Egypt. Elsewhere, temporary versions of the “board” were even found carved on rocks.

Game pieces — “tokens” and accompanying “dice” — were found with “boards” and we are also fortunate enough to have recovered cuneiform clay tablets describing methods of play.

wp_20161015_22_55_53_pro

Tokens are made from small circular clay “chips” marked on one side with five dots or asterisks, allowing the distinction of the two sides, similar to the “game” use of coins today. There is a set for each player, one dark (black) and one light (white). Complete game sets, allowing for all prescribed methods of play, generally have seven of each type, although only six pieces are used in a standard GAME OF UR.

Dice consist of small dark clay four-sided tetrahedrons – essentially the d4 of today’s role-playing games – with two of the four tips marked white. This means when rolled, there is a fifty percent chance of the dice coming up with a marked “tip.” The dice are used to decide a starting player and during the game to indicate the number of moves allowed in a player’s turn. In a standard GAME OF UR each player uses four of these dice for their rolls, scoring the throws as follows:


1 point = 1 marked tip
2 points = 2 marked tips
3 points = 3 marked tips
4 points = 4 marked tips
5 points = no marked tips


UR GAME (1987)

UR GAME (1987)

The standard GAME OF UR begins with two players, each with six playing tokens and four tetrahedral dice. The dice are thrown for the privilege of going first. The player scoring highest wins this honor. Players then take turns strategically placing their tokens (with the marked side up) onto board squares. When each player has placed all six of their tokens, the next phase of game play ensues.

THE GAME OF UR is won by a player having four of their tokens on four of the identical squares of any one of the three sets of the five identical designs:

— The Flower of Life (a lotus wheel)
— The Four Elements (four eyes and crosses)
— The Heavens and Gods (five dots within circles)

…plus one more of the tokens on one of the other squares:

— The Solar/Fire God (four zig-zag squares with five dots each)
— The Celebration (sixteen dots with crosses)
— The All-God (zig-zag squares or all seeing eye)

UR GAME (British Museum Replica)

UR GAME (British Museum Replica)

After the players have placed their tokens on the board and “there has been no easy winner,” the players take turns moving tokens as determined by the dice count. Players may move a token in any direction (vertical, horizontal or diagonal) jumping either color piece but must finish on an unoccupied space and have not counted any space twice in their move.

When first placed, all six of a player’s tokens are played marked side up. Each time a player moves a token it is flipped over, showing it has been moved or played. A player cannot move or play this token again until all tokens show they have been moved/played. This continues until the object of the GAME OF UR has been achieved or until a player traps their opponent into a position where they cannot move. In many respects, the GAME OF UR resembles elements later found in tic-tac-toe, connect-four, checkers, chinese checkers and chess.

Future of Dark Arts & Forbidden Sciences; True Necromancy for the Cyber Generation | Cybernomicon

vlcsnap-2016-04-02-03h07m43s506l;d

BELTANE 2016 — On May’s Eve, “When the Great Bear hangs from its tail in the sky,” Mardukite Research & Development presents a CyberVamps Publication in conjunction with the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press — sure to become an underground esoteric classic representative of the World Order of the Next Generation…

CYBERNOMICONTrue Necromancy for the Cyber Generation: The Future of Dark Arts & Forbidden Sciences in the 21st Century by Joshua Free
Now available in HARDCOVER and PAPERBACK

GreatBearinthSky

Since the dawn of modern human history in Babylon & Egypt, magical tradition appeared as innate and indigenous forms of cultural and religious expression to give “order” to the human psyche…

Was ancient mysticism, esoteric wisdom and dramatic magical operations intended to be taken “literally” once committed to written records?

Are they actually indicators of something else beneath the surface of the way they have been understood for centuries? …even millenniums?


CYBERNOMICON_cover-preview “We are here to become great men and women, and with that purpose in view, we must eliminate everything in our religion and philosophy that tends to make the human mind a dependent weakling. If you would serve God and be truly religious, do not kneel before God, but learn to walk with God, and do something tangible every day to increase the happiness of mankind. This is religion that is worth while, and it is such religion alone that can please the Infinite.”
–Christian D. Larson

CYBERNOMICON in Hardcover and Paperback!

The Ancient Mystery School from which all occult lodges are founded is Necromancy. Deep rooted magical organizations all demonstrate active participation with “The Other,” bridging a communication between what is Visible and Invisible. Inner Circles maintain Dead Names and Knowledge from the Past. These are the Teachings of the Ages, Secret Wisdom of the Past… and a recovery of what is Dead.

keep-calm-and-be-a-cyber-5 Humans have been trying to crack the code on “Death” since the invention of religion. In Egypt, especially, the funerary process was central to the whole tradition-meaning the relationship (and promise) made between the “sky gods” and the people of Earth. Most of the oldest cuneiform writings in Mesopotamia are either an effort to preserve posthumous legacies of gods and kings, or investigations into the landscape of the Underworld and nature of the Abyss.

Sacred knowledge from ancient civilizations, including their technology, is understood only by looking beyond the contemporary knowledge we are educated with. Society claims to prize “individuality” and “innovation” yet requires its citizens to fall in step to learn and repeat — copy and paste — the same methodology held by previous generations. Mystics and Magicians demonstrate an upper hand in life by manifesting their will and finding themselves in synchronistic circumstances that seem magical. Understanding energy fields, their interactions and its affect on perceived reality is what makes this possible.
