SORCERER’S HANDBOOK – “Merlyn Stone” Legacy 20th Anniversary, Early Origins : Arcanum and Mardukite Necronomicon by Joshua Free

The SORCERER’S HANDBOOK OF MERLYN STONE returns for a special 20th Anniversary commemoration after this underground cult classic reached thousands of copies in circulation! …and as a fan-appreciation bonus, this deluxe edition is publicly available at the original 1998 retail price!

Prolific author, underground occult expert and founder of the modern Mardukite Anunnaki movement — JOSHUA FREE — reveals unique details about developing this amazing work as a teenager in the 1990’s, writing as “Merlyn Stone” at the forefront of the new millennium “magick” scene:

“During the 1990’s, public interest in ‘magick’ and ‘occult’ subjects exponentially rose to new heights as few could have anticipated. I appeared on the “New Age” scene – however much ‘underground’ – in 1995 as ‘Merlyn Stone.‘ As I have explained to others and in my recent autobiographical narrative, NABU SPEAKS!, the name was chosen for personal reasons and not as a tribute to the female author (Merlin Stone) of whom I had not even heard of at that time. My research revealed that ‘Merlyn‘ is not really a proper name, although it has been used to refer to particular figures (or a figure) in history, it is actually a title – a Welsh title – that can be best equated to what you might know as a seer or prophet. The contemporary reader may be more familiar with the Judeo-Christian religious context of the title, which in Hebrew is nabih, derived from the Babylonian name: Nabu – a name that many know me as today.”

“As far as I could observe, however, it was 1995 that provided the largest shift. I took a step back, observing the wide-angle, and I saw the prominence of the newly released motion picture The Craft coupled with Sabrina the Teenage Witch as the featured ‘after-school-special’ of the day. Clearly the coast was clear and it was time to come out – come awake!”

Merlyn Stone
(Joshua Free)

“While I was not alone in hearing this ‘call’, the work I had to do – the program I was here to follow – was not something readily understandable to the population – even a “New Age” one. The plans were laid before I ever showed up in this life, but patience was key as was watching for the signposts and keeping my head down. It was going to take everything to bring the work to the heights it can now be found in, but in the 1990’s, the world was not ready for what I had to say concerning the origins of ‘magick’ and the “Mardukite” legacy, so I had to start at the beginning – to build a basis – to work from the foundation rock or stone.”

“All of my original ‘writings’ related to the occult field were actually the subject of ‘in-house’ materials prepared for working groups and research oriented studies that I was personally involved with – and often the ‘founder’ of. I began this work publicly in 1995 and it has now been over twenty years since – half of my current existence. It has taken many forms, though it was easiest for me to begin with that which would be most familiar to my target demographic: esotericists, occult practitioners and the up and coming alien youth that usually had inclinations toward the “New Age” naturally.”

“In 1995, the world was not ready for MARDUKITES. I worked within the paradigms that were much more accessible and did not require a lot of ‘cultural background’ – ritual magick, spellcraft, high psychology and even the ceremonial systems. Additionally, two methodologies I was most concerned with connecting later planned work (now known as “Mardukite”) were Pheryllt Druid material of Douglas Monroe and also “Simon’sNecronomicon, rooted in Mesopotamia.”

“From 1995 through 1999, I assisted in producing not only several ritual collections or ‘Book of Shadows’ for practicing underground groups but also led my own operating and experimental groups and even taught workshops and gave lectures in local Denver-area bookstores and New Age outlets. The sum of all this was collected as the SORCERER’S HANDBOOK OF MERLYN STONE, with additional materials later produced and known now as the Lost Books of Merlyn Stone. Some of these later notebooks and contributions were commissioned for private use or small groups, but even all these twenty years later, some of the records still remain and I have chosen to append them to the traditional presentation of the SORCERER’S HANDBOOK for this twentieth anniversary presentation.”

“Simultaneously revolutionary and introductory in its presentation, the SORCERER’S HANDBOOK OF MERLYN STONE is the inspirational precursor to the materials I later developed more thoroughly in order to establish the “Mardukite” brand of occult interpretation
– mainly ARCANUM: THE GREAT MAGICAL ARCANUM, BOOK OF ELVEN-FAERIE and NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE. These other works represent a more mature development of my contributions from early adulthood, but the Sorcerer’s Handbook of Merlyn Stone and the Lost Books still remain as distant origins to my more recent and better recognized work.”

For centuries, the realm of magick has been sought, and finally what the world awaited for has arrived; a book that tells it all without the unnecessary occult jargon allowing for the quickest personal results in training and development. Just a few of the many topics explored are ritual spellcraft, candle magick, ceremonial high magick, tarot divination, the magick of the Golden Dawn, the complete Enochian arts and yes, even the Necronomicon! Now you can master the powers of magick with a book that has changed the world, launching hundreds of traditions in over a decade! — SORCERER’S HANDBOOK – 20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION

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!

Secrets of Universal Unification, A New Esoteric Standard Model – “Arcanum: The Great Magical Arcanum” by Joshua Free

THE ARCANUM (or “Great Magical Arcanum”) materials were originally created as a baseline of complete knowledge that many dedicate entire lives (or the equivalency of lifetimes) in pursuit of. Rather than waste many years of initiation exploring what numerous other societies and schools do, Joshua Free released ARCANUM as “Book Zero” at the inception of the modern Mardukite launch, allowing the organization to be properly adjusted to explore a much deeper cycle of mysteries now known as the “Mardukite Core” (consisting of four anthologies of material, starting with the now infamous NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE edited by Joshua Free). For the first time in a decade, Mardukite Truth Seeker Press is pleased to present the most accessible and economical edition of Joshua Free’s ARCANUM to the public in time for its 10th Anniversary!


THE ARCANUM by Joshua Free is a unique literary contribution toward harmonic unification of knowledge receiving many names throughout the ages: magickal, occult, pseudo-scientific and now, even quantum. Rise of technology and this recent “information age” provides a wellspring of metaphysical lore, but it is not generally 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 scientists and 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.

Materials of ARCANUM are multifaceted – 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. Choice of this design allowed Joshua Free ability to cover more topics in a tighter space without having to be unnecessarily repetitive of more common aspects. This book is not to be mistaken as simply another “A-to-Z Encyclopedia of Magick” or a superficial discourse concerning “where science and magic meet.” In fact, this text was not written for the true beginner in mind and its scope surpasses practical “new age” magick alone.

ARCANUM can be integrated into any personal background or developmental stage. With sufficient time, study and practice, seekers work 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 book. 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 accomplishments or background.


Throughout history a uniquely separate class of individual has existed on the edges of known reality, bearing a great magical secret. Some have come to call these folk “wizards” or “mystics,” the possessors of the “hidden” or “occult” knowledge of life and the universe. They alone bring the obscure and “invisible” properties of existence into the light, albeit rarely upholding contemporary norms. And while there has been an observable increase of interest in such topics progressively in recent past, the walls of the Ancient Mystery School have far from collapsed.

Hidden within these pages is the true story of the development of civilization, human existence, the traditions and “real magick” adopted by individual hermits, orders and societies at each stage. Unlike many other A-to-Z styled works, ARCANUM is not simply a collection of vocabulary, history and arbitrary biographies, nor is it composed of randomly dispersed pseudo-psychological techniques and spirito-magickal puffery that often runs rampant in the mainstream New Age.

ARCANUM seeker follow a practical and experimental journey from ancient
Mesopotamia and Egypt through the traditions of “magickal” races and bloodlines of later Europeans. YOU will observe the loss of Truth experienced globally during the Dark Ages, which secret societies have so strongly sought to maintain. Finally, YOU will arrive at the forefront of current developments in “quantum theory” and “unifying fields,” new paradigms reviving old philosophies with new terminology, by which the modern “wizard” can better understand the effects of metaphysical “thought magick” on the physical world and the relationship between the resonance of external-environmental energies and the internal self.

Joshua Free’s ARCANUM challenges seekers from any path (whether religious, mystical or scientific) to “shed their skin” for a moment, to release the programmed Ego and layers of belief and sensory experience in order to discover Self-Honest Truth that exists outside boundaries of all defined systems or paradigms. Rather than take the approach that all systems are “just wrong,” Joshua Free explains that it is simply our “beliefs” concerning each facet or level of reality that are in need of revision. Drawing from diverse sources and traditions, the coherent highlights are presented that actually unites knowledge of varying systems. It validates their complimentary comprehensive efforts rather than minimizes them.

ARCANUM prompts all people to embrace their intuition in light of real Truth. For example, during the last century, anthropologists revealed startling confirmations concerning ancient Mesopotamians and their influence on human genetics and civilization. Sumerian, Babylonian and Akkadian tablets (previously unavailable to seekers a century ago) now reveal a more ancient source to the Genesis of mankind that was presented to Hebrew culture by Moses… Anunnaki-Nephilim lore of the same geographic region provides the source of angelic mysticism, obscure races of elemental beings and the European faerie folk. Lore preserved by diverse traditions and secret societies provide evidence for belief in specific dynasties and bloodlines of “real” wizards and elves, a folk that have since passed into realms of fantasy and imagination… And these are just a few of the 1,000 subjects of knowledge explored within these pages. Conventional textbooks and history lessons have certainly not caught up. This is your chance to know!


10TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION!!!

ARCANUM : THE GREAT MAGICAL ARCANUM provides a complete structure and standard by which future developments in this field will have to be rethought to include the metaphysical, psychological, quantum and spiritual significance of meditation, visualization, ritual magick, ceremonial tools, natural magick (herb & trees), “spellcraft,” energy work, auras, chakras, resonant energy in environments, sacred sexuality, the philosophy of knowledge and morals, philosophical and laboratory metaphysics, the contributions of secret societies and magickal organizations, divination, prophecy, skrying, astral work, astrophysics, the interpretations of astrological symbolism, the influence of planets, the symbolism of celestial mythology (Sky Gods), the historical background to Christianity, the effects of the Church through the Dark Ages, the heredity of Dragon Kings, incarnated elemental beings, quantum physics, unified fields, superstrings (string theory) and other waves and particles of energy. Provided within are all the tools YOU, the seeker, require to discover the ARCANUM of life for YOURSELF.

Divine Magic & Secret Holy Names : High Magickal Tradition Origins in Ancient “Alien” Priesthoods

sumerians-65429007-589x171

Above all of the possible magic words to be invoked, the Divine Names are held in the highest regard by priest-magicians and wizards – meaning, of course: “names” for God. Joshua Free explains in the new Fifth Anniversary Second Edition of Mardukite Liber-K: ENOCHIAN MAGIC & KABBALAH: SUMMONING ANGELS, ALIENS, UFOs & OTHER DIVINE ENCOUNTERS.

enochianmagic2017cropsmallPutting aside the more ‘conventional’ implements of the magical arts; the garments and regalia, the tools and sigil seals – it is NAMES and WORDS that appear most significant when encountering ‘higher forms’ of the esoteric mysteries…


Similar to the way in which ‘existence’ becomes more dense and fragmented as the varying lights and veils are perfected until we reach the manifested existence within human perceptual abilities, the Names of God became increasingly ‘mutated’ with time and the myriad of ‘language semantics’ that were later applied to this form of cryptomancy.

Given the emphasis put on ‘words’ and ‘names’ in the Anunnaki tradition – as found evident on Sumerian and Babylonian cuneiform clay tablets – it is not surprising that we should see a mystical lore related to the same carried by the priests and magicians of the later derived system-traditions: the Kabbalah, Egypto-Greek Hermetics and of course native Chaldean and Zoroastrian movements – all of which based on a ‘personal’ relationship with Divinity by means of a ‘secret’ or ‘esoteric’ lore that enabled them to call upon and recognize these ‘forces’.

enochian-banner

Priests of the Anunnaki tradition acted as intermediaries between the human population and the beings perceived as “Divine” that often resided in their very cities, occasionally occupying the ‘ziggurat-temples‘ built on the highest mounds of each region. In the proto-Sumerian traditions, the priest-magicians were the only ones who were able to transmit any communication with the Anunnaki “Sky Gods” of their observed pantheon.

This shifts during the post-Sumerian or Babylonian-Mardukite period, as a rise in local or ‘personal’ magic becomes present among the common folk. During this post-Sumerian period, many individual members of the Anunnaki group became patron ‘central’ deities to different areas, an act that furthered the fragmentation of knowledge.

hammurabi21233 After the magical arts were given to the people, the Hermetic attempts began at ‘unlocking’ the esoteric secrets withheld by the original priests and caretakers of the traditions. Uncovering Divine Names was one of the more ‘paramount’ acts to making the newer systems function – a means of going around the intermediaries socially and politically installed to oversee the religion and spirituality of the people. It is here that we begin to see ‘magic’ as a part of ‘counter-culture’ existing outside of, and in many cases in opposition to, the Realm.

Rather than being a state-religious affair celebrated openly in public view, the practice of magic began to turn ‘inward’ and was pushed further and further underground as the growing populations and varying personalities each had their influence on its character.

Mystical use of the Kabbalah, such as we find with the Enochian system and other methods involved in the late 19th century ‘magical revival’ by members of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, is heavily dependent on the use of “Divine Names” or other “less-divine” (even “infernal”) names as words of power. Although derived from the same sources, this is generally typical only of post-Babylonian systems, at the Age of Aries (c.2100 BC).

enochianmagic2017cropsmall We see evidence of it throughout the Hermetic traditions of the last 3,000 years and in virtually every example of ‘magical grimoire’ or ‘tome of magick’ at our disposal. Clearly, the author-carriers of this type of lore treated the names as ‘sacred formulas’ critical to the success of the ‘transcendental operations.

Starting around 2,000 years ago, they started being classified as exactly that: formulas.

DRUIDOLOGY : Dragon Kings, Druids & Pheryllt, 15th Anniversary “Book of Druidry” by Joshua Free, (Underground Classic Restored)

druidryfullcvribanner

Venture deep into the folds of the Green World and initiate yourself to the greatest of the Celtic Mysteries – the Wisdom of the Druids!

Discovering druidic wisdom and dragon power of the ancient woodland mystics has never been more clear for our times. It’s time to come and initiate yourself and on a journey into Groves of the Enchanted Forest.

Drawing upon two decades experience in neodruidism, Joshua Free’s original underground masterpiece, “Druidry”, completes a long-planned trilogy of superior resources for modern druid seekers, which includes with “Book of Elven-Faerie” and “Draconomicon.”


druidry15thannivthumb I completed the material for “Druidry” shortly after my disappearance as “Merlyn Stone” in 2001. Here it is, fifteen years after the fact, being released for widespread distribution for the first time in the history of its underground existence – influencing the New Age in covert ways, something that I have done extensively for these subjects, whether you might recognize where my work and words have made their appearance to you… I assure you they have. “Druidry” is simply one more example of this – one that has stood the test of time among my literary contributions and is even older than Book of Elven-Faerie (the project that I began in 2002 after completing “Druidry”).

lapis lazuli cloak 1 Recently, a related literary contribution of mine, the Draconomicon also celebrated an anniversary: of twenty years! Combined, the Book of Elven-Faerie, Draconomicon and Book of Druidry discourses compose material released as Druid Compleat anthology (formerly titled: “A Complete Course Curriculum in Druidry”). All of this work is a reflection of material collected during my participation in the modern Pheryllt Druidism movement, heavily weighted by the work of Douglas Monroe and his Merlyn Trilogy.

13043328_1691299604455500_7570410307930593095_nvv Many things have transpired since Mardukite Truth Seeker Press released Druidry in 2012, for its first public edition (although it was intentionally not made available to extended distribution channels). During the same time as this work was being developed, Douglas Monroe released the third and final installment of the “Merlyn Trilogy” (titled “Deepteachings of Merlyn”) and included an “interlogue” essay contributed by yours truly. At the same time I was installed to the Twelfth Chair of the Round Table Council maintained by Douglas Monroe and the New Forest Centre. Things had come full circle…


druidry15thannivthumb Providing a new vision for modern Druidry, neodruid expert Joshua Free explores the deep teachings of Druidic Lore, including the core doctrines and codes, triad teachings of the Bards, natural philosophy, the construction of ritual tools and performance of ceremonial magic dedicated to trees and Nature.

Whether you are new to Druidry or simply looking to refresh your own practices, this concise, expertly written and beautifully presented guide to the ancient mysteries will re-enchant your everyday life with the Wisdom of the Druids!


moroiiadlksgnkldsabsmsm The Dragon – the Druidic Legacy is an important part of the history and traditions of cultural magic and the development of human civilization as a whole. Nothing is separate. And this is one of the messages we learn from the Druids. That everything is connected together and we cannot see things in exclusion to other things if we are to see things for how they truly are – for the Druids seek to see with Truth.

Hidden in the depths of the Dragon lair is a legacy of bloodlines, secret pacts and cults, the symbolism of an entire universe and the means by which it can be controlled. This is perhaps one of the best kept secrets or grand conspiracies in the history of occultism. It is the undefiled, raw and primordial truth of things – just as we would expect the Druids to understand them.

With understanding comes wisodm. Enjoy.

Mesopotamian Magic, Maqlu Cuneiform Tablets, Babylonian Dark Rites of Anti-Witchcraft

mesopotamianmagicheadline

“Climb the ladder of lights and appeal to the gods for their protection and for the destruction of the enemy and all evil-doers, wicked witches and warlocks of the world…”
–Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible

How often we have heard of the “Dark Arts” born of a ‘polarized’ and often ‘dualistic’ view of the universe – and the forces that occupy it. For every ‘white witch’ there is a ‘black spell’ and to every system of Order, there is a Chaos factor; for no fragmented experience of reality can ever actually find “balance”, but the pendulum swing – the tidal ebb and flow of universal currents will always seek it.

maqluthumb This mardukite.com blog post is extracted officially from Mardukite Liber M, available as either MAQLU MAGIC or NECRONOMICON SPELLBOOK II, in addition to the Year-3 anthologies either MESOPOTAMIAN MAGIC or NECRONOMICON WORKBOOK and the mega-anthology NECRONOMICON GNOSIS.

…So, too is movement possible in the physical world – or at least one’s perception of the ‘3-D’ reality experienced. As such, with the once united ‘crystal’ being cracked into the varied refractions of human experience, language and culture, a ‘dualistic’ world emerged in consciousness; right before the very eyes of ancient Mesopotamians – at the heart and cradle of human civilization.

WHAT IS THE MAQLU CUNEIFORM TABLET SERIES?

Before approaching the more ‘colorful’ elements of the tradition – those that could most appropriately be given classifications as ‘Dark Arts’, ‘Sumerian Sorcery’, ‘Babylonian Witchcraft’, ‘magickal warfare’ or ‘wizards duels’ – it is important that the context for which such exists, a background screen onto which to express the story of the MAQLU in its projected spectrum of rainbow lights and kaleidoscope glory.

MesopotamianThumb The name MAQLU can be interpreted differently as with most things – such variegated perceptions are not even restricted to foreign languages for even a shared one is not free of semantic issues in its own vocabulary. Most typically, MAQLU is translated to mean “the Burnings” by ‘Sumeriologists’ and such. This is a good ‘base’ for our context, as we do indeed find the origins of a community bonded for ‘burning evil in effigy’.

The Simonian work, in regards to a Babylonian Necronomicon practice, interprets the tablets as ‘Rites of Burnt Offering’ or else a ‘Book of Burnings’ for literary purposes. As with most of the work ‘restored’ by the Mardukite Chamberlains, a surface interpretation is never accepted and a ‘deeper mystery’ can often be uncovered in the very ‘literal’ meanings behind these very old words that do not appear to have had the same ‘metaphorical’ meaning that modern language users often take for granted – for the Mardukites have interpreted the MAQLU more appropriately – and not without its other diverse cultural parallels – as Burning Man [maq-lu].

cuneisdgsdg Though it seems that the MAQLU operation was once a much more simple, internalized, meditative and solitary application used by early priests and magicians in Mesopotamia, it later developed more dramatically as a public Fire Festival in Sumer and Babylonia, involving the entire population of the community who gathered together in a ‘combined’ and ‘harmonic’ effort of intention to ‘drive out’ or ‘dispel’ the “evil” and “evil-doers” of the land.

As “ridiculous” as this might sound to the naïve skeptic or right-wing fundamentalist, it can and should be noted that more recent public scientific studies all over the globe have now shown the effective abilities of consciousness moving energies when large groups, or better, the majority of the population is focused on a single emotional event.

These types of ‘quantum’ effects appear to have very real ramifications for the population of the planet and the greater cosmos as a whole in this entangled universe whether or not people are aware of this phenomenon taking place in their environment and even internal ‘spirito-mental’ being (which are self-honestly All-as-One).

necrognosisTHUM In the instance of the MAQLU, the Burning Man is the representation of the ‘evildoers’ of the world – those who ‘plagued’ humanity with their wickedness and thereby upsetting the ‘world order’ of the gods, in addition to the gods themselves. Upsetting such a balance was usually felt in the community as ‘illness’ and ‘pestilence’, ‘disease’ and ‘famine’. Such could prove devastating to still developing human civilizations, and as such they were considered ‘evil’, the most wicked of ‘demons’ and anything that might lead to them – mostly uncleanliness and misappropriated living – were considered taboo (the original non-moral tribal sins) and for good reason.

Eating from an unclean plate was taboo (a sin) because it could lead to the spread of disease. Ancient humans were far from primitive in their understanding of the natural world and their relationship with
it. Before the wrongful use of authority in classical times, the taboos and sins were not given from dogma, but from medicinal necessity.

Representative images are often used in ‘idol magic’ or ‘sympathetic magic’, but not as a result of worship – as some mythographers have repeatedly put forth – but to actually embody the ‘energetic current’ that is universally entangled to ‘focal object’ and its form.

WICKER MAN OF THE DRUIDS

cunei The representation of a ‘demon’, like the ‘plague-god’ Namtaru, was not to worship the deity with homage or to glorify the ‘daemonology’ of the Babylonian priests. Such statuary was typically constructed only to be ‘ceremonially’ annihilated or buried as a ‘ward’ against what the statue (deity) was representative of. In making such an object, the magicians show their understanding of the ‘entanglement’ of the universe in its mystical oneness and the interconnection of all things.

Certainly not primitive.

It is almost impossible to bring up the topic of the Burning Man without conjuring to mind a much more geographical and time-recent example made popular in the images of motion pictures and familiar Roman-inspired writings of the Celtic Druids – and that is the Wicker Man, also called ‘Burning Man’ by some neopagans.

Far removed in time and space we see evidence for the same rite being conducted and for similar reasons – the preservation of the early agricultural civilizations that were ‘guided’ by Sky God traditions – called the Anunnaki on Mesopotamian tablets or the Tuatha de Dannan (Tuatha d’Anu) in European Celtic and Druidic sources.

1001015_318340804969022_2026839541_n “Fire” is a very common element to the early ‘magical’ and ‘shamanic’ systems, and its mastery in correlation to the development of modern humans is certainly indisputable. Any connection to the Fire Festivals of Europe is going to be difficult for one to understand without having been familiarized to the rigorous research found in other Mardukite materials that gives Mesopotamia as the birthplace of the Druidic Tradition.

Sir Francis Frazer (Golden Bough) mentions both a ‘solar’ alignment and ‘purification’ style to these types of operations. The later European Wicker Giants appear to be more ‘agricultural’ in nature then the MAQLU version that targets actual ‘practitioners’ of the ‘Dark Arts’ that negatively affect the well-being of the greater population, the community at large and by extension the “moral balance” perceived of ‘universal forces’.

The ancient Sumerians and Babylonians were no less dependent on the ‘agricultural’ fertility then the Celts – far from it. Thriving of a human numbers in the lands of Mesopotamia were so heavily dependent on the skilled use of arid land and the redirection of water from the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in a skillful way since lost to the Arabs and other occupiers of the land since.

babel98769878 In Europe, we find the appearance of the Burning Man during the fertile and seed-sowing and nurturing ‘spring’ seasons, particularly the Equinox (Easter) observation, Beltane (a notorious ‘Fire Festival’) and finally Midsummer. The annual survival of the agricultural Celts was wholly dependent on the success of this season above all others.

IN CONCLUSION…

One of which does correlate with Europe is an esoteric observation of Beltane – opposite it, Samhain (modern-day Halloween) is also significant. The Sumerio-Babylonian AKITU festival is concurrent with the Spring Equinox. So, regardless of where we turn, there is a unifying (universal) picture forming to define the ceremonial observation of the Burnings.
