Sumerian Rituals, Babylonian Magic and the Rise of Modern Mesopotamian Neopaganism

“Here [in Babylon] is real death. Not a column or arch still stands to demonstrate the permanency of human work. Everything has crumbled to dust. The very temple tower, the most imposing of all these ancient constructions, has entirely lost its shape. Where are now its seven stages? We see nothing but a mound of earth – all that remains of the millions of its bricks. Here the ancient mysteries and their tombs have been sleeping quietly for millenniums. In a few months, perhaps in a few days, the ground will be broken by trenches as in a battlefield. And the repose of the poor dead will be disturbed by the frantic search for records and data…”
~ Edward Chiera, “They Wrote On Clay”
From a letter to his wife

Before Babylon—when history had not yet been written—the land now known to modern man as the “Middle East” was first occupied by “gods” of antiquity—the Anunnaki. These super-human figures molded and shaped human consciousness and the systematized civilization we so easily take for granted in the “Western World” today. The wheel of time forced the age of “gods” to become an era of “men” and their ways, but the ancient foundations built in Mesopotamia remain strong among us today.

Don’t miss the 10th Anniversary reissue of the amazing modern esoteric library of Mesopotamian Neopaganism developed by the “Mardukite Research Organization” now rewritten, revised and updated in the newly restored alternative-paperback edition of the MARDUKITE CORE.

Classical period Greeks may be credited with the term: Mesopotamia—meaning “A land between two rivers.” More literal than poetic, the title accurately describes the region known to the ancients as Babylonia—the “Land of the Gates of the Gods” and the “City of Star-Gates” established primarily between two rivers—the Tigris and the Euphrates. Today, the term Babylonia is used to distinguish post-Sumerian empires maintained by Babylonian kings, a lineage made famous by Hammurabi, the powerful “Mardukite” systematizer of Babylon.

Commonly compared to the fertile Nile region of Egypt, Mesopotamia is also a river-delta system—and, like the Nile to the Egyptians, this system of life-giving waters proved to be inseparable from prosperity of the people. The plain was cultivated successfully by use of the first “aqueduct-irrigation” systems. Accurate construction and upkeep of these canals were vital to keep Babylonia habitable in all seasons.

Mystics of every age go forth explaining an almost quantum vision of reality and existence: entangled, interconnected—All-as-One. While this might seem a truly obscure approach to crossing the current threshold of what is typically deemed an “academic” topic; it is not. Consider for a moment that our mythic past is very much rooted in truth—albeit misunderstood but a truth that has been conveniently, or forcefully, forgotten among mass awareness.

Politics and the general human condition evolving outside of the Ancient Mystery School have, throughout history, taken its toll on accounts of said truth, as becomes quite evident concerning the history of the geographic region known as Mesopotamia. Humans, accepting a mortal paradigm, are unaware of one critical aspect of the cosmos—one that they can not see based on limited perceptions and reality experiences schematized by semantic labeling—that Universal Truth is actually unchanging. Some have even put forth to call it “Cosmic Law.”

In spite of the best (or worst) human efforts across time, the Truth has survived to remind us of our origins, to instruct us on where we have to go and perhaps, most importantly, the standards we should live by to get there. Mere survival of Secret Doctrines by select cabals is not enough. For as the world was once plummeted into Dark Ages only to be reincarnated in an Age of Enlightenment, the “esoteric” truth did not resurface in public “exoteric” consciousness—in fact, it went the other direction: underground and into vaults of obscure “occult” factions.

FORBIDDEN ARCHAEOLOGY — Mardukite 10th Anniversary Reboot featuring “Necronomicon: The Anunnaki Bible”

Commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the modern “Mardukite” New Thought movement, the Director of “Mardukite Research & Development”Joshua Free—returns to “Mardukite TV” on YouTube for a 10th Anniversary “Reboot” series is dedicated to reintroducing the world to the NexGen work of the “Mardukite Chamberlains” and especially the primary source book of the movement, developed underground over the past decade as— NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE —available as a 10th Anniversary Hardcover Collector’s Edition on October 30, 2018.

NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE
10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition Hardcover

Revised and updated complete anthology!

Cloth Hardcover with Dustjacket

NECRONOMICON : THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE is a revolutionary contribution toward true “New Age” advancement in authentic historical, mystical and esoteric research. It draws from a unique and unparalleled modern effort combining archaeological findings with the esoteric (“mystical” and “magical”) traditions—forming the backbone of what Truth Seekers are looking for! This book specifically concerns hard to find information about the Sumerians, Babylonians, Akkadians, Assyrians, Chaldeans, Egyptians… even including the Yezidic Traditions and Zoroastrianism.

Until the inception of the modern “Mardukite” movement, this information remained in the backwaters of human consciousness—even in the “New Age movement”—because they have not been as accessible as European traditions and other more popular and classical customs and revivals that are more widely accessible today—including even the Egyptians and the Hermetic Mysteries from the Classical Age. NECRONOMICON : THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE revives the heart and soul of humanity directly from the cradle of civilization as a complete cuneiform tablet collection anthology, translated and beautifully presented in its raw and undefiled state.

What sets the modern “Mardukite” organization and movement apart from a lot of others—and also the subject of some controversy—is the fact that it is a balanced combination of the “esoteric” and the “academic” or archaeological. As a New Thought Movement, the modern “Mardukite” methodology is not passive—it is an active movement—balanced coherently in the logic of philosophies and science. For a decade, the organization has operated underground as a collective of NexGen “Truth Seekers” essentially seeking the well-springs of hidden information, historical records, research of cuneiform tablets—which includes “esoteric” (“spiritual” and “mystical”) experimentation. This method of development, under the direction of Joshua Free, has led to the highly effective growth of this paradigm around the world.

NECRONOMICON : THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE reveals the “Ancient Mystery Tradition” as it first appears, when civilization is developing in Mesopotamia. This became the groundwork for later derived “Hermetic Traditions” and the “Underworld Mysteries” and legacy of “Books of the Dead,” not to mention the influences directly on Semitic lore and development of Judeo-Christian tradition, including the “Book of Genesis” and “Book of Enoch” and the entirety of the Kabbalah!

ILLUMINATION – Purpose and Function of Secret Societies & The End of Mardukite Transparency (A New Babylonian Illuminati?)

“ALL THINGS OUGHT NOT TO BE DECLARED TO ALL MEN” reads the back of the latest public release from the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press, the tercentenary edition of John Toland’s PANTHEISTICON, enhanced and annotated by Joshua Free, known for his emphasis of the Welsh Bardic Druids motto: The Truth Against The World.

“To know the Truth is one thing, to tell it others is another thing: and as all men profess to admire the first, so few men practice the last as they ought. At the same time the Truth is owned to be more valuable than wealth or honor, there are by most without hesitation preferred before it, which appears not only by their eager application to procure riches and titles, while they abandon the study of Truth, or faintly pursue it.”
PANTHEISTICON (CLIDOPHORUS EXCERPT)

Mixed and curious reactions were raised this month when modern Mardukite Director, Joshua Free, announced a progressive shift in the future operations of the organization toward “esoteric” development among a new “advanced” “Order” from within the Mardukite Research Organization, drawing from the “best” and “highest” axioms, aphorisms and philosophies actually underlying all of the “outer circle” materials published by Joshua Free (under various names) since the mid-1990’s.

#pantheisticon

“…no room was left for the propagating of Truth, except at the expense of a man’s life, or at least of his honor and employments, whereof numerous examples may be alleged. The Philosophers therefore, and other well-wishers to mankind in most nations, were constrained by this holy tyranny to make use of a two-fold doctrine; the one popular, accommodated to the masses, prejudices of the vulgar, and to the received customs or religions: the other philosophical, conformable to the nature of things, and consequently to Truth; which, with doors fast shut and under all other precautions, they communicated only to friends of known probity, prudence and capacity.”
PANTHEISTICON (CLIDOPHORUS EXCERPT)

Established officially as an ‘underground parent organization’ in 2008, coinciding with the release of ARCANUM by Joshua Free, Mardukite Ministries governs worldwide operations of several divisions, including the “Mardukite Chamberlains” (Mardukite Research Organization) best known for the release of the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI LEGACY cycle of materials since 2009. Another division, the “NexGen Systemological Society,” launched in 2011 with its own “New Thought” materials such as REALITY ENGINEERING, in addition to overseeing both: the “Druid Archives” (publications including THE DRUID COMPLEAT cycle by Joshua Free and his forthcoming BOOK OF PHERYLLT Source-Book Anthology from Kima Books); and the “Moroii ad Vitam (Paramus)” (Mardukite Vampyre Academy) public launch in 2015, immortalized by Joshua Free’s VAMPYRE MAGICK anthology (including V: VAMPYRE’S BIBLE and CYBERNOMICON materials).

“There are two sorts of philosophy and science in the world, the one according to Truth, the other according to Opinion; keeping in mind the fallacious nature and uncertainty of the senses, which often represent things otherwise than they are in themselves, and must therefore be examined and corrected by true reason. From the senses arises opinion, and from reason, demonstration: on the former are huddled up the prejudices of the vulgar, following the bare appearance of things; on the latter are founded the axioms of the wise, who consider things as they are in themselves.”

“For example, Parmenides in his Exoterics (or books accommodated to the public taste) says ‘..fire and water are the beginning or principle of all things’, as if he had acknowledged the world to have been created: but that in his Esoterics (or books compiled according to the Truth) he says ‘the Universe is one, infinite, and immutable.’ Here not only the distinction of Exoterics and Esoterics is literally to be learned, but an example of it likewise alleged; namely, a beginning of things Exoterically, but Esoterically, the eternity and incorruptibility of the Universe.”
PANTHEISTICON (CLIDOPHORUS EXCERPT)

…and so we are at the crossroads of exoterica and esoterica, as Joshua Free explained in recent discussions with the “Mardukite Alumni” and “Council of Nabu-Tutu” concerning the progressive evolution and unfolding of the highest ideals of the pursuit on the path, marked previously by a “public demonstration” of “prodigious research and demonstration” of external applications of Truth and its varied patinas in the Ancient Mystery School throughout the books available by Joshua Free from the “Mardukite Truth Seeker Press” – to which very few people have truly explored to find the depths intended, and it is hardly ever the message by which it is packaged on the surface.

Just as we have “rebooted” the emphasis of early materials and Year-1 work again for newcomers during our 10TH ANNIVERSARY seasons, this clearly presents us with one more reason of need for an ‘inner’ “Secret Society” for those who genuinely over the past decade already used and explored the “Exoteric Mardukite Library” independently and are actually ready for something greater, meanwhile many people are still now only discovering their first steps and progressing or advancing their unfolding consciousness at their own pace. But… the time has come for some of us to charge ahead using the medium of an “Esoteric Mardukite Library” in supplemental exclusion. Unlike previous materials, these will be available ONLY via personal arrangement directly from the ‘Mardukite Offices’. Meanwhile, the exoteric map for others still remaining in our wake as some go forth toward the summit. All progress at their own rate. None are “left” behind. But likewise none can be thwarted on the upward progress of their own spiritual evolution and illumination. The Law of Balance will compensate – and the lips of wisdom will speak to ears of understanding!

“The Egyptians, like the Chaldean Babylonians, who were among the wisest of mortals, had a twofold doctrine: the one secret, and in that very respect ‘sacred’ and the other popular and consequently vulgar. Who is there, that is ignorant of their sacred letters, hieroglyphics, forms, symbols, enigmas, and fables? Far and near was spread the fame of the Egyptian Philosophy, ‘Concealing things under the appearance of fables,’ says Plutarch, ‘and in speeches that contained obscure indications and arguments of the Truth: which they themselves expressly declare, by placing sphynxes before most of their Temples; thus indicating that their doctrine concerning sacred things, consists in a sort of wisdom which is designedly perplexed, and lying hidden under studied veils.’”
PANTHEISTICON (CLIDOPHORUS EXCERPT)

The Most Ancient Sacred Library… at your fingertips! Once Reserved for the Elite: Secrets of Cosmology-Science-Mysticism… Revealed!

Contemporary understanding of ancient civilizations is botched — pure and simple. Where much is uncovered even today, consistently shifting our opinions and timelines stretching around the globe, it cannot be dismissed that in spite of the myriad of findings and symbols among scattered remains, it is the cuneiform tablet libraries of ancient Mesopotamia (what is now Iraq; formerly Sumer and Babylon) that truly give us the first true writing systems. And although we like to call them “books” today, no such objects existed at that time — instead, an entire tradition of preserving knowledge and scientific mysteries emerged in the form of clay tablets, written in a script-style known as cuneiform (and named for its ‘wedge-shaped’ marks).

NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE (10th Anniversary Seventh Edition)

Prolific author and prodigious mystic and philosopher, JOSHUA FREE, has been actively involved in the underground and so-called “New Age” movement for nearly 25 YEARS, first known as “Merlyn Stone” in the mind-1990’s. His personal occult notebooks as a teenager, such as the “Draconomicon” and especially his “Sorcerer’s Handbook” (with more than 2000 copies in circulation before he was 18 years old), have influenced the development of modern practitioners and their traditions for two decades! Pivotal more-intermediate editions such as “Book of Elven-Faerie” and especially the release of “Arcanum: Great Magical Arcanum” literally launched the modern Mardukite movement more than 10 years ago! But where the subject of the Mardukite resurgence is concerned, the most inseparable of all works by Joshua Free is a literary collection known today as the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE.

“So, in the ancient Realm we peer into, we find not books, but clay tablets; no bibles, but specialized tablet collections — sometimes kept in wooden or gilded boxes, for the elite class of Mesopotamia were all literate. And “temples” of priest-scribes preserved the most ancient knowledge of cosmology, science and etheric spirituality on clay tablets in cuneiform scripts, some more than 5000 years old today. And these were no obscure symbolic primitive picture-glyphs, but explicitly detailed renderings — albeit quite mystifying to the common-folk of the general population who could not read, who could not decipher the mysteries themselves to the degree of that intellectual dimension. Maintaining an Order to the ancient commonwealth, ceremony, traditions and other culture emerged from this lore, but on a public exoteric level designed primarily for the masses with little direct access or discernment of the cuneiform tablets themselves. Such was, as it always has been, kept closely guarded under the highest or most secret echelons of the Realm, who maintained their own lineage of societies within, albeit also separate and apart from, the surface world. Such is what provides us with the substance to work through this work today under its present guise…[the Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible]” — explains Joshua Free, from a recent “Knowledge Lecture” at the Mardukite Babylon Ancient Astronomy Research Office.

NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE edited by Joshua Free, is now celebrating its release of a 10th Anniversary Seventh Edition, the most complete, economical and accessible printing of the original ‘Mardukite Core’ anthology in a decade, just in time for a (NexGen) new generation of Truth Seekers. Of course, it is essential reading for any Mardukite, but even beyond this specific semantic paradigm, it is a must-read for anyone considering themselves a “Truth Seeker.” It is intriguing and refreshing to see this forgotten lore so painstakingly researched from a perspective that is both anthropological and historical, not to mention mystical and spiritually nourishing.

JOSHUA FREE

As a Mardukite Alumni once commented about the work, “Resulting from a [then] fifteen-year journey into the source of ‘New Age’ metaphysical mysteries of the underground, JOSHUA FREE had fallen upon what appeared to be a pure current-stream back to the sources of the most ancient and coveted Babylonian tradition…”

The “Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible” edited by Joshua Free is quite simply a masterpiece of Mesopotamian magic, spirituality and history, providing a complete collection – a grand symphony of correlated materials – of the most ancient writings on the planet.

NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE 10th Anniversary Limited Edition

PHERYLLT 3 – Completion of Pheryllt “Books of Fferyllt” Trilogy Series by Joshua Free

In ancient Keltia, the Druid Order consisted of learned ones, those educated in Bardic Arts: cosmology and spirituality, natural-native history and geology, legendary history of heroes and mythology, healing and botanical medicine, astrononmy and astronology, and of course ‘magic’ – all of which are hidden in lines of Bardic verse and the researches of those who study them. As primary preservers of Celtic and Druid Mysteries, it is no wonder that Bardic Druids were considered the transmitter or catalyst of -awen- the essence, Divine Spark or spirit of inspiration that the Greeks termed ‘gnosis’. It is to the ‘ebb and flow’ of the -awen field- that the magical and poetic genius of the Bard is attributed.

Preservation of ancient knowledge is key among all elite orders of the ages. This Ancient Mystery School is timeless and spans all places on Earth. Past mystical cultures often relied on elite orders of scribe-priests and poet-magicians to bridge ancestral roots and traditions with the future – orders rooted in ‘languages’, ‘communication’, and above all the written word. The poetic genius of “awen” – the Divine Spark of Creation – manifests throughout all creative arts and as the spirt of “prophecy,” an ability to observe experiences with a heightened awareness and communicate it in the World of Form. Druidism is, therefore, an echo of this “poetic genius,” an amalgamation of collected knowledge preserved by the ancient elite, including a mystical and scientific understanding of the world that eluded the perceptual range of ‘common’ folk.

PHERYLLT: Volume 1
PHERYLLT: Volume 2
PHERYLLT: Volume 3

A unique metaphysical apprenticeship combining diverse facets of knowledge – from practical magic, to Welsh Bardic tradition, to Celtic history, or even foreign philosophies assimilated by the Druids – all appear in Douglas Monroe’s Merlyn Trilogy under a premise of being derived from the Book of Pheryllt (or Books of Fferyllt); a collective ‘body’ of Druidic wisdom also called the Body of the Dragon. As such, a wide array of sources and subjects were required to develop an allegorical facsimile (but legitimately authentic) manifestation of the Book of Pheryllt consistent with the mysterious manner in which Bards and Druids conceal and reveal the secret tradition. Considering the sheer variety of citations and scattered references in Monroe’s work, meeting justifiably high requirements and expectations for the ‘Body of the Dragon’ would require more than one volume to be complete and follow protocols – actually three volumes: a TRIAD interwoven as ONE.

Many antiquated scholarly references to the “Books of Fferyllt” or the “Pheryllt” themselves may be found (included or paraphrased in the current Book of Pheryllt trilogy series facsmile). Whatever bits trickle down from classical literature and antiquarian druidism to satisfy a modern thirst for the ‘pheryllt paradigm’ have been collected together in one place – a sacred book once thirded and now made whole – forming a complete sourcebook of undefiled lore. Whatever name, guise, or title we might attribute to the ‘Body of the Dragon’ – and we have chosen PHERYLLT – this same lore (originally accessible to few) serves as basis for the majority of Celtic and neo-Druidic revival of the past few centuries; whether or not it has been given due credit as such.

PHERYLLT: Volume 1
PHERYLLT: Volume 2
PHERYLLT: Volume 3

Several different cycles of important Celtic and Welsh literature and lore – Hanes Taliesin, Cad Goddeu, the Gwarchans, Cymric Triads, the books of Aneurin, Taliesin, Myrddin… – are all found in the Iolo Manuscripts including the Myvyrian Archaeology anthology and Barddas. In fact, we can essentially trace the abundant wealth of surviving Welsh MS. – including the Mabinogion – back to “Iolo Morganwg” (Edward Williams) and manuscripts ascribed to “Llywelyn Sion.” Where a thick scholarly aura accumulated from years of controversy may surround the ‘authenticity’ of some of these manuscripts, valid substitution shortages have bound the modern revival specifically to these available texts and the tradition gleaned from them.

The Book of Pheryllt trilogy of volumes edited by Joshua Free (also collected together in one volume in the forthcoming “Pheryllt -or- Body of the Dragon” anthology to be released later this year) is the realization of a legendary tome collecting wisdom passed down from an equally legendary ‘priesthood’ known in the histories of the Druids as the PHERYLLT (pronounced FAIR-ee-llt or VAIR-ult) – those who resided in the ancient Snowdonian mountains of northern Wales. There, they inhabited an ‘ambrosial city’ named for its mysterious founder, PHARAON (FAR-ah-on), meaning ‘higher powers’ and possibly alluding to the ‘celestial’ authority of a “Pharaoh.” Perhaps it is the practice of “Druid Craft” to call down ‘higher powers’ to conjure inspiration and magic in the world – perhaps that is what Ceridwen is doing where Taliesin the Bard writes: – “She took to the crafts of the Books of Fferyllt to boil a cauldron of awen.” According to our modern ‘Neo-Pheryllt’ tradition, a manuscript known as the Book of Pheryllt exists from the 16th Century collection attributed to Llywelyn Sion of Glamorgan Wales. Along with its companion volume, Barddas, also purportedly by Llywelyn Sion, the manuscripts moved from the library of Owen Morgan (“Morian”) to the private collection of the Albion Lodge of the United Ancient Order of Druids in Oxford (an ancient stronghold of the Pheryllt Order noted by Ralph Waldo Emerson).
