Every day, newcomers are discovering the revolutionary writings of Joshua Free as he continues his work toward refining concise presentations of former texts and advancing toward higher and higher ‘ledges’ of knowingness that extend beyond the “normal” human condition. These writings suggest a coming age of ‘Metahuman’ evolution on the level of the actual ‘Spirit’ that operates this experience.
The following “FAQ” (Frequently Asked Questions) report was prepared in December 2019 during the public revival of the “Systemology Society” (after ten years underground) and the refinement of ‘Mardukite Chamberlains’ (Mardukite Research Org) work into an accessible facsimile of mesopotamian neopaganism as “Mardukite Zuism.”
This transcript is based on a video provided to the ‘Mardukite Chamberlains’ by one of its esteemed long-standing council-members, David Zibert. A version of this report first appeared in the original Systemology Liber-2C printing for the Mardukite Academy.
• Why the “Necronomicon”?—Why do you use of the title “Necronomicon” to represent historical tablets for Mardukite work?
In 1977, a mysterious book appeared in the underground occult scene, published by a collective related to the O.T.O.—naming themselves “Schlangekraft”—which was edited with authorship under the single name: “Simon.” That book, of course, being titled: “The Necronomicon.” Chances are good that you know of the book I’m talking about; the infamous “Simon Necronomicon.” Over a million print editions have circulated around the planet—not even including those now illegally copied and shared on the internet.
Behind, back of and beyond all of the controversy which surrounds the book, a Seeker will discover that a large part of its material is drawn from historical Mesopotamian cuneiform tablets; for example: the Enuma Eliš Babylonian Epic of Creation, the Fifty Names of Marduk and the Descent of Ishtar in the Underworld, or Sleep of Ishtar—but all of which is bastardized to fit a stereotypical and expected “Lovecraftian” theme.
The “Simon Necronomicon,” up until the arrival of the Mardukite edition by Joshua Free in 2009, was actually an anomaly in the “New Age” scene: the sole book presenting a specifically Babylonian spiritual paradigm with any practical occult relevance to support a wide interest in “Mesopotamian Neopaganism.” Joshua Free and the Mardukite Chamberlains team thus saw fit to give back the material its rightful due; providing us with the original Babylonian paradigm—called “Mardukite,” as in dedication to the patron Anunnaki founder of Babylon, Marduk.
This new wave of “Mardukite Necronomicon” work by Joshua Free was firmly based on actual cuneiform clay tablet collections, complete with initiate-level commentary available to the public for the first time; replacing the need to independently and meticulously collect dry and often hard to find academic renditions of similar material. The original installment of this work was released on the Summer Solstice 2009 exclusively to the “Mardukite Chamberlains” as “Liber-N: The Necronomicon of Joshua Free”—which is actually not a derivative of “Simon’s” edition and really has nothing directly to do with the stories of H.P. Lovecraft. The official Mardukite comment on “Simon’s” book was published in 2012 as Liber-555, supplementing the 2010 release of Liber-R.
• Is Mardukite Zuism an Ancient Aliens Cult?
No, we aren’t—We also do not specifically or exclusively subscribe to Zecharia Sitchin’s interpretation of the Anunnaki, either. We do view the historic Anunnaki as physical beings, yes, but beings maintaining an elite quality of Actualized Awareness as “Alpha Spirits” in command of a “genetic vehicle” or physical body, instead of literal “spacemen”—which they just might be too, as everything in the Physical Universe carries “multidimensional” facets, at least from the perspective of (and understanding held by) the Human Condition.
While it is true that Mardukite Zuism is indeed a re-creation, reconstruction or reenactment of the Ancient Babylonian Priesthood of Nabu, we are not worshiping the Anunnaki as divinity, nor in the conventional sense, Marduk directly proper. Relevance of the “Babili” System—the native name for the Babylonian spiritual paradigm—lies in it’s underlying system and it’s logic—or “Systemology”—that we are now applying in modern times. It would be useless and unproductive to merely reiterate and celebrate the ancient tradition verbatim, which purpose is now obsolete.
It could further be said that the way in which we process this material now in the 21st century AD—the stuff coming to us from the 21st century BC—is a practice of “defragmentation”; that we are actually very much systematically undoing the fragmentation once done back in Babylonia, in some kind of esoterically revolutionary ‘Averse Mardukite’ approach, a semantic we are of course avoiding because it’s misleading.
In brief, “Mardukite Zuism” and its Systemology is not a cult; quite the opposite—it is a map by which we reclaim the highest potentials of the Self—the Alpha-Spirit—or, as we say in a rather poetic fashion: a way to “Starwalk to the Source.”
• How do you “join” the Mardukites?
Simply put, in the most basic terms: you don’t. You read the books; you do the work; you stick around and if you get it right—as in what I call the ‘Mardukite Key’—then yeah, congratulations, you’re a “Mardukite.” This is not to say that there won’t be more structure within the organization in the future—such as we see progressing with our “Grades” and the development of the “Mardukite Academy,” “International School of Systemology” and “Mardukite Zuism” as an openly practiced modern spiritual paradigm—but we’ve found that, for the most part, a classical “masonic” or “kabbalistic” structure of initiation, such as is widely seen in Western culture, is more often a distraction, a game really, rather than the real deal, which is an association of individuals maintaining “Actualized Awareness.” That being said, we are expecting and preparing for increased organizational involvement throughout the 2020’s decade and beyond!
• How many freakin’ books does this Joshua guy put out every year?
This is a more commonly asked question by those individuals that have only recently, within the past couple of years, become aware of the existence of Mardukite Ministries, Mardukite Systemology and the work of Joshua Free as newly republished and globally distributed through the new “Joshua Free Imprint” (formerly ‘Mardukite Truth Seeker Press’ operating underground). Newcomers can be easily overwhelmed by the sheer amount of materials released over the short period of time that this new imprint has been in operations and the number of ISBN assigned in a short time.
What some might be unaware of, is that most of the books released between 2018 and now are actually rewritten, revised and reissued materials that were originally published over the past decade from “Mardukite Truth Seeker Press” (founded in 2008), which was the original underground print-on-demand version of the indie publishing house now represented by the official Joshua Free Imprint. Hence you now see these vastly improved versions as more commercially available “10th anniversary” or “20th anniversary” collector’s editions—many of which now appear in hardcover for the very first time. The Grade-II “Mardukite Core” is composed of a decade of material now reissued back to back, so I do understand why some newcomers might find it overwhelming. Even then, if you look back at the last decade of Mardukite and Systemology work, Joshua Free has always been releasing stuff at a frantic pace, something largely unseen on the ‘New Age’ or ‘esoteric’ scene in general since the end of the 20th century.
• Are the Mardukites RHP (Right-Hand Path) or LHP (Left-Hand Path)?
We’re neither. While it is true, we often describe our path—which is the “Pathway to Self-Honesty”—as the “Right Way,” this semantic is often confused with an RHP context; which it is not. These polarized terms of “Left” and “Right” have actually been obsolete for quite a while in the underground—and I expect them to also become so on the more mainstream scene somewhat soon, as there are signs of that here and there already. In brief—“what is termed LHP is really a blend of the diabolized traditions of Enki and Ishtar, but realized very much outside of Self-Honesty, while the RHP is a corrupted expression of an usurpation of the Mardukite Ideal, which in itself predates all this.”* Do your homework and you’ll see that this is very much the case.
• What are the sources of all these Arcane Tablets?
I get asked this a lot from folks who would like a more academic presentation of the material that appears in our “Necronomicon: Anunnaki Bible” or “The Complete Anunnaki Bible” (Etc.)—people that obviously are unaware of how things work in the occult underground. But yes!—all of these tablets and their contents may be independently researched from the remaining physical cuneiform clay tablet collections from ancient Mesopotamia, all of which are kept in museums; with the exception, perhaps, of the “Shayaha” (Sajaha) materials, the source of which is still the subject of some controversy.
The more widely accessible Arcane Tablets found within the “Mardukite Catalogue” or text of “The Complete Anunnaki Bible” are based on updated translations of transliterations from the “Kuyunjik” collection and “Surpu” tablet series kept in the British Museum, in addition to the “Maqlu” and other now well-known sources of cuneiform literature. It is all easily researched and readily discoverable if you actually care to do so; but officially, we have already put in the time on these subjects. I might add that: the very fact that the core of our work is based on real archaeology—on very raw physical data—and not some Illuminoid mumbo jumbo, demonstrates both a seriousness and validity of what we’re doing, regardless of your opinion of, for example, our use of the title “Necronomicon.”
• Is there a link between the Anunnaki paradigm and (insert preferred cultural mythology here)?
Perhaps one of the most commonly proposed questions by those who have studied various mythologies and cultures is: are the Anunnaki related to India, or Japan, or Mesoamerica, &tc. The short answer is: yes—the Babylonian Anunnaki are planetary archetypes, the same as those found throughout each and every culture worldwide, without exception. And while this is easily demonstrated intellectually with small investigations into comparative religion, it often comes as an emotional shock to those that fixedly identify themselves very strongly to a specific localized culture (and its correlated mythology semantics). These are the same individuals that would dismiss ancient Mesopotamian lore today because of the current politics in the Middle-East and its present population.
Just do your homework in Self-Honesty and the facts will become clear.
But, to be a bit more specific concerning the worldwide influence of the Anunnaki, there are a few examples given in the Mardukite literature concerning this if you look. One such is Ningishzidda, which is Enki’s brother, that becomes a driving force behind the inception of ancient Meso-American civilization under the guise of Quetzacoatl. Other details can be found regarding the Tuatha d’Anu in Europe that also carried the Anunnaki Legacy in the guise of “Druidism.” Essentially, one can find connections between anything and anything. But, such connections and cataloging is not the focus of our current work, as stated by Joshua Free in the original Mardukite Systemology Grade-III textbook, Liber-One (The Tablets of Destiny):
“Once an individual’s attention is successfully brought to the wisdom of the Arcane Tablets, suddenly new layers of understanding begin to unfold concerning Life, the Physical Universe—and experience of it as Reality. With new eyes, the Seeker begins to find fragments of confirmation in virtually every piece of ancient esoterica. This information is not restricted only to the cuneiform tablets unearthed in Mesopotamia—but it is our oldest, complete and definitive literary example, from which sprung the “Secret Doctrines” maintained by many other spiritual traditions and cultures throughout time and space.”
“Of course, if we choose to, we will undoubtedly find variations of this wisdom in the Egyptian Book of the Dead, the Dhammapada, the Vedas, and so on… With humanity now having wide access to various source materials, it is not the focus or intent of our current discourse—or the instructional Systemology Grade that it represents—to chase down all later derived fragmented examples of the “Tablets of Destiny” in history. Such is an intellectual occupation that someone else will undoubtedly take up, but no attempts will be made at this time by the current author to systematically redefine and categorize all of the diverse paradigms in existence.”
• How is Mardukite Zuism & Systemology any different from other esoteric occult, initiatory or religious organizations?
This is certainly a legitimate and relevant question. The Mardukite material, in itself, reveals what I like to call the ‘Mardukite Key’—as I mentioned above—and it is this very Key that makes our work and organization stand apart from anything that has publicly come before. This whole matter is somewhat complex—a bit hard to define fully in only a few words. Simply put, the ‘Mardukite Key’ attained from Grade-II work is what we call Systemology, which is explored directly in the Grade-III work, including “The Tablets of Destiny” and “Crystal Clear.”
In effect, what we have found with the recension and study of the most ancient texts available is how, primarily through the very use of the written word, the Human Condition got programmed outside of a Self-Honest experience of reality.
What do we mean by Self-Honesty? The term is clearly defined in the “Mardukite Zuism & NexGen Systemology Dictionary”—
“the alpha1 state of being and knowing; clear and present total Awareness2 of-and-as Self, in its most basic and true proactive expression of itself as Spirit or I-AM—free of artificial attachments, perceptive filters and other emotionally-reactive or mentally-conditioned programming imposed on the Human Condition by the systematized physical world.”
1 alpha : the first, primary, basic, superior or beginning of some form; in NexGen systemology, it also refers to the state of existence that operates on archetypes, will and intention “exterior” to the low-level condensation and solidarity of energy and matter as the ‘physical universe’.
2 awareness : the highest sense of-and-as Self in knowing and being as I-AM (the Alpha-Spirit); the extent of beingness directed as a POV experienced by Self as knowingness.
Whether or not this—what might be called the “Babylon Incident”—is literally the first time such programming was impressed on humanity, is actually irrelevant. It is historically appropriate for our purposes to chart the progression of implanted fragmentation programs, described in our Systemology, as they were visibly installed and are still running today, very much present in the Human Condition and its societies.
The exact nature, structure and control of these “systems” is often debated, understandably so, even in ancient times, when several members of the younger Anunnaki pantheon attempted the same tactics as Marduk. This often occurred simultaneously and using the same technology, known from the Arcane Tablets as the “Divine ME,” or else the “Tablets of Destiny.” Aside from Marduk’s Babylon, we find similar patterns among the Anunnaki with the cases of Ishtar and Ninurta.
So, ‘why the emphasis on Marduk then’—you may as well ask?
The simplest and most direct answer: because he is the only one among the Anunnaki that seemed to care at all about humanity; seeing the potential of the species as more than mere cattle or pets in material service to the gods—and their plans. As mentioned within the cycle of Mardukite literature, or the Mardukite Core, his own plan—to return all religious devotion of Humanity to the Infinite Source, or else activating complete personal Alpha Awareness of the individual through all Spheres of Existence—failed.
And this is precisely what we, the modern Mardukite movement, have set up to correct right now, using the applied spiritual technology that we call “Systemology”—the very same technology used by the Anunnaki to engineer the realities of this Physical Universe. Furthermore, as I mentioned in my foreword to the French translation of “Mardukite Liber-G”—the ancient Mardukite Babylonian paradigm (and specifically its Systemology) from the 21st century BC reveals nothing short of a more complete, workable, effective and valid proto-kabbalah, predating the better known and widely used Semitic version by hundreds, if not thousands, of years.
Full realization of the ‘Mardukite Key’ is not to be taken lightly, as it positively cancels centuries, even millennia of fragmented exegesis. This simple fact, dear Seekers and friends, is a major game-changer for humanity—at the very least, as far as esoteric literature and the occult underground is concerned; something that has yet to be fully realized for essentially political reasons. And as I said in my contribution to “Mardukite Liber-51” many years ago: this time, it’s different, and we are cheerfully inviting you to join us and take part of this grand adventure, this real hope for the future, to reclaim your True Self, and evolve, and rise, as Homo Novus, or else go extinct alongside Homo-Sapiens and it’s pre-programmed obsolescence.
