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.”

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!

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

SUMERIANS, BABYLONIANS & ANUNNAKI GODS OF ANCIENT MESOPOTAMIAN RELIGION

Secrets of the Anunnaki & The Origins of Babylon

RETURN TO THE SOURCE — to traditions and spirito-mystical systems of the Middle East, those born from ancient Sumerians and afterward extended to interpretation by Chaldeo-Babylonians, Akkadians, Assyrians and even Egyptians. The spread of this tradition across Europe led to even more fanciful and colorful realizations of the primary Olympian mythology first realized in ancient Mesopotamia!

Discover the secrets for yourself in SUMERIAN RELIGION by Joshua Free — The most critically acclaimed and bestselling materials from the Mardukite Research Organization now available in one volume! A master compilation of mythological and religious exploration into the heart of ancient Mesopotamian Mysteries, this easy-to-read post-modern anthology illuminates the ancient world using revolutionary teachings and source materials in a way never before seen… for thousands of years!

The nature, identity and relationship of ancient Mesopotamian Anunnaki “gods” – those of the Sumerians and Babylonians – is very important, not only for understanding the literally ‘Mardukite’ work, but also for possessing a greater ‘wideangle’ vision of life, reality and existence – not to mention understanding your own place and legacy within it.

All of the original and later work of the ‘Mardukites’, all of these other authors and producers and their theories and explanations of things past, present and even future – they are all dependent on a clear and concise basis of understanding and comprehension of the very root element that it all surrounds – the very beings that made all of this history and human development possible. For without this key knowledge, and an objective one-to-one correlation of this knowledge with reality, all of the other research, reading and even the experience of life and reality will be undertaken ‘out of context’ of what is Truth.

The meaning and innate desire to pursue truth, particularly what has been known as the Secret of the Ages, is no less obvious in the realm of science and academia then it is in the world of the occultist. Those who have been dubbed ‘occultists’ or ‘esotericists’ are not the only ones interested in SUMERIAN RELIGION, nor are they even the original ones. Only the methodologies and intentions differ. And yet again – all is connected.

The recovery of the truth of mankind’s past is paramount to the fate of humanity’s future. Thus, it should could by no surprise that the geographic terrain of its origins has been the victim of unyielding war and suffering for thousands of years – further enshrouding those unveiling efforts with a measure of hesitation and doubt painted by political opinions of the modern Middle East, and for our purposes, what the academicians have called the Ancient Near East. Relative power within the modern world and human society is a ‘fleeting glamour’ and wholly representative; yet, if anything on the planet can be said to represent ineffable true worldly power by the ‘sword’ and ‘shield’ of truth, it is from those objects of ancient knowledge that come to us from this place.

SUMERIAN RELIGION by Joshua Free : Arriving on the surface world from the underground – an amazing insight into the Anunnaki ‘alien gods’ and the establishment of human civilization famously accounted by the Sumerian and Babylonian traditions. Prolific writer, Joshua Free, presents this topic such as the modern world has never before had access to, developed from the revolutionary work conducted by the next generation of Seekers actively using a revival Anunnaki tradition in the present day. SUMERIAN RELIGION is not merely the presentation of dry academic renderings of obscure tablets; this book will take you on a progressive journey that is just as relevant and critical today as it was thousands of years ago! Uncover the mysteries that lay hidden in ancient Sumer, with a message so relevant today, it is no wonder it became the greatest kept secret of Babylon!

CROSSING TO THE ABYSS — Secrets of the Simon Necronomicon Revealed by Mardukite Nabu Joshua Free

anecrogate-banner

Shrouded in doom and gloom, contrasted against the “Cthulhu Mythos” envisioned by H.P. Lovecraft, who very well may have developed the title — Necronomicon — for his own saga and literary cycle, the book presented by editor Simon is anything but a fabrication of fantasy, but is instead an allusion to a very real, though fragmented, “Mardukite” Babylonian Anunnaki Tradition, a system that once dominated the prehistoric and ancient world before the rise of the Greeks, Romans and even Egyptians!

crossingabyss2017fullcvrcropsml Originally published by the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press for the Year-4 literary cycle in February 2012 — and appearing as both “Stargate to the Abyss” and “Necronomicon For Beginners” — Joshua Free’s underground occult classic Liber-555 celebrates its Fifth Anniversary in the new eco-edition of CROSSING TO THE ABYSS: UNVEILING THE SECRETS OF THE SIMON NECRONOMICON!

Given the extent of my involvement in matters concerning the Necronomicon for twenty years, it should not be surprising to find that I am now being called out from the dark corners I am usually want to residing in regarding the topic of the “Simonian” recension of the Necronomicon that has earned so much notoriety and publicity since its arrival in the underground during the late 1970’s,” explains Joshua Free in the introduction to Liber-555.

The Simon Necronomicon is a delicate topic for me, and so it has been a long time coming for me to actually give attention to answering others towards its details. In the past, I have directly avoided such a feat, preferring the work to stand on its own to those culled into its mystique, hardly able to be overshadowed by the efforts of other writers and occultists that have made a system to their own preferences, lending a healthy hand to supporting the allusions made in the fiction writing of H.P. Lovecraft and the later inspired Cthulhu Mythos – connected to our own efforts purely for the fact that the title Necronomicon is shared and perhaps even derived from the Lovecraftian sources.

elderquasipentadf Since being released in 1977 — the same year that the world saw the arrival of “Star Wars”, the “Shannara” series of Terry Brooks, “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”, the “12th Planet” debut by Zecharia Sitchin and many other consciousness paradigm-shifts — the Necronomicon by Simon has changed the shape of the modern “New Age” movement and human understanding, introducing over a million people of the new generations to the reality of the Anunnaki traditions born from ancient Sumerians, Babylonians, Akkadians, Assyrians and Chaldeans of Mesopotamia. Many of these mysteries are also explored on our alternate site: NECROGATE.COM

Mardukite founder Joshua Free continues: “What has drawn in the connection between Simon’s Necronomicon and our own work is the underlying resonance of the original ‘Mardukite Anunnaki Tradition’ from Babylon that appears in “his” grimoire far stronger than any Lovecraftian flavors or the Cthulhu Mythos – and it is for this reason that it has been so often paralleled with the modern “Mardukite” efforts.

Someone approaching the Simon Necronomicon without any previous occult knowledge may be confused as to its ‘magickal’ and ‘esoteric’ suggestions for ritual and ceremony, and yet the ‘heart’ of the material will still seep in and formulate some kind of change in the reader – especially if the lack of previous ‘occult’ knowledge is being coupled with no background in ancient ‘Middle Eastern’ or otherwise ‘Mesopotamian’ cultures and mythologies. If such is the case, the book will be naturally regarded as a highly cryptic or otherwise ‘incoherent’ blend of names and correspondences that are without basis.

My own personal interests in the Simon Necronomicon have always – for twenty years now personally – remained fixed on its connection to ancient “Mardukite” Anunnaki-oriented systems. Similarly, the book has actually served as a ‘portal’ or ‘gateway’ in and of itself to many of its readers into this ‘lost’ and ‘forbidding’ pursuit of intellectual academia and occult esoterica; people who would otherwise have had no real familiarity with ‘Babylonian Gates’ and ‘Anunnaki Gods’ later reminisce that the Simon Necronomicon was their own introduction to topics.”

crossingabyss2017fullcvrcropsml The modern “Mardukite” research organization has spent nearly half a decade exploring the mysteries of Mesopotamia, the Anunnaki and related subjects. After having completed the entire NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI LEGACY with the Mardukite Chamberlains, prolific writer, editor and founder of the “Mardukites,” JOSHUA FREE, ends his years of silence concerning the Simon Necronomicon by finally providing his expert commentary on the classic text in Liber 555, “Crossing to the Abyss: The Mardukite Guide to the Simon Necronomicon.”

ANGELS & DEMONS of the New World Order – A New Vision of Enochian Magic & Kabbalah (with Joshua Free)

enochian-banner

“Wholeness comes from repairing the ‘fractured cracks’ of our understanding so that we might be ‘view’ and ‘experience’ reality with ‘clear’ and ‘self-honest’ eyes. Judging by the sheer number of literary works, organizations and even less organized members of the community still flock to these methods and practices for a means to ‘ascension’ or ‘enlightenment’ during this lifetime. The truth is… Many people, even among today’s ‘New Agers’ are still lacking in the appropriate knowledge to carry themselves along these paths and have them be ‘realized’ to their truest or fullest extent.”
–Joshua Free in Enochian Magic & Kabbalah

enochianmagic2017cropsmall For the first time in modern history, the true origins of Judaic Mysticism (the Kabbalah), Christian spiritual beliefs and other derived practices of ceremonial magic (such as the Enochian system, Hermetics and Golden Dawn methods) can now be traced directly to the archetypal ‘Sky-God’ traditions of the prehistoric Mesopotamia: The post-Sumerian Babylonian “Star-Gate” system dedicated to the Anunnaki.

ENOCHIAN MAGIC & KABBALAH: Summoning Angels, Aliens, UFOs and Other Divine Encounters (by Joshua Free) celebrates its 5th Anniversary with a new second edition!

The modern contemporary outlook on the ‘alien’ or ‘extraterrestrial’ and ‘inter-dimensional’ source behind these many experience is what ties it together. So long as people have been forced into a paradigm where the spiritual and mystical encounters of the past are made to look ‘ridiculous’, without basis and a fantasy-legend to tell our children to get them to sleep, no real ‘advancement’ can be made on the understanding and practical incorporation of these mysteries into everyday life. For this reason, the more ‘orthodox’ and ‘static’ systems of religion and spirituality that have dominated the Piscean Age are seeing a decline in membership and true practitioners for the simple fact that we are realizing more and more just how ‘fragmented’ they have actually become. And since we do not see the ‘greater systems’ bending at all to the new realizations available, it is us who must do the changing and usher in a new and authentic ‘paradigm shift’, which is what this whole “New Age” (Aquarian) is supposed to be about in the first place.

1001015_318340804969022_2026839541_n In Enochian Magic & Kabbalah, prolific occult writer, Joshua Free, brings together what is known of the ancient “Ladder of Lights”, the BAB.ILI system that constitutes the original “Tree of Life” ‘kabbalah’ found graphically present on ancient renderings and its connections to the later Judeo-Christian traditions and the evolution of human understanding of “Anunnaki”, “Igigi” and other sky-beings into the Hebrew renderings of the “Nephilim”, “Anakim”, “Elohim” and the like.

While new technological advancements bring no shortage to the intellectual Ego of the human mind, the entire purpose of existence, the source of the human species and the knowledge and paths that brought us to where we are now, have all been left behind, swept under a rug or otherwise been ‘concealed’ from the ‘commonplace reality’ of contemporary life. Assuming things were to remain so, the human race would be successful in only destroying themselves and leaving a huge mark on the planet in its wake – change must come, for the alternative is annihilation.

enochianmagic2017cropsmall Reexamination of the most ancient tablet renderings of the Anunnaki and the way in which they had initially developed among the local populations (to Mesopotamia) thousands of years ago should help to shed new light on the history of human civilization, the development of its cultural and religious beliefs and the way in which this interaction between people and god has affected their lives.

Today, in spite of the ‘normalcy’ attached to orthodox religions, humans live and act as a godless people, with no fear of someone watching over them in addition to being simply content with operating the program as they have been given it.

As the ‘next generation’ rises into maturity, understanding and power, we believe that these things will change; that new eyes and new vision will bring a New Babylon – a new world – to the planet and new evolutionary potential for the life living upon it!

enochian-banner

ENOCHIAN MAGIC & THE KABBALAH illustrates the singular origin of the mystical and spiritual traditions on the planet, all directed toward a human relationship with the “Divine“, however that might be viewed — angels, elementals, fairies, gods or other ‘alien’ beings — and more importantly, the methods by which they have been attracted into one’s life.

Since all of our available traditions today seem linked to these antiquated ‘Divine Encounters’, it seems fitting to make a self-honest exploration of the nature of these origins of belief and how they may affect our abilities to perceive the world and affect reality today.

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.

Secrets of the Anunnaki & The Origins of Babylon

MESOPOTAMIAN RELIGION gets a face lift!

The most critically acclaimed and bestselling materials from the Mardukite Research Organization now available in one volume!

SearchingREGthumb Last year, the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press released new updated eco-editions of two of our most critically acclaimed and widely distributed materials — SUMERIAN RELIGION (Liber 50) and BABYLONIAN MYTH & MAGIC (Liber 51) later revised and expanded as SUMERIAN TRADITION (Liber 51/52). Previous editions of these materials were arranged for the classic anthology MESOPOTAMIAN RELIGION (Liber 50,51/52) and the latest updated eco-editions are now available for the first time in one volume as SEARCHING THE SANDS OF TIME by Joshua Free, with original foreword by Sortileges.

A master compilation of mythological and religious exploration into the heart of the ancient Mesopotamian Mysteries, this easy-to-read post-modern anthology illuminates the ancient world using revolutionary teachings and source materials of the modern Mardukite Chamberlains (Mardukite Research Organization) and edited by Joshua Free, the presiding Nabu of the administration since its inception.

SearchingREGthumb Keeping with the familiar cover photo that has always represented these important materials since being introduced to the public FIVE YEARS ago — SEARCHING THE SANDS OF TIME is a highly innovative and accessible ‘academic edition’ of the Mardukite Chamberlains “Year-2” research and development, including the complete text from two installments: “Sumerian Religion: Secrets of the Anunnaki & The Origins of Babylon” (Liber 50) & “Sumerian Tradition: Secrets of the Anunnaki in Babylonian Mythology” (Liber 51/52) in one incredible compilation!

Arriving on the surface world from the underground – an amazing insight into the Anunnaki ‘alien gods’ and the establishment of human civilization famously accounted by the Sumerian and Babylonian traditions. Prolific writer, Joshua Free, presents this topic such as the modern world has never before had access to, developed from the revolutionary work conducted by the next generation of Seekers actively using a revival Anunnaki tradition in the present day.

SEARCHING THE SANDS OF TIME is not merely the presentation of dry academic renderings of obscure tablets; this book will take you on a progressive journey that is just as relevant and critical today as it was thousands of years ago! Uncover the mysteries that lay hidden in ancient Sumer, with a message so relevant today, it is no wonder it became the greatest kept secret of Babylon!

Chroniclesfrontcrop …worshipers of Marduk? …stuff-shirted quasi-historians? …perhaps, failed Masons? …no. …are they, then deranged occultists restricted to some long forgotten Mesopotamian paradigm, unable to see beyond the sands of the desert long forgotten? …not even. I see… so, perhaps they are just the figment of this guy, Joshua Free’s, imagination — some outspoken kid who someone made the mistake of giving a YouTube account to? …ok, well, now you’re just being mean!

NecroPBthumb The term Mardukite had received little attention prior to its use by Joshua Free, starting in 2005. Although clearly connected to the Anunnaki being known in Babylonian literature (and traditions) as MARDUK, the organization has never once advocated the ‘worship’ of this being, or any being in the conventional sense of the word.

NecroBible6ththumb JOSHUA FREE explains that the choice of the term, among many personal reasons, was due to the very lack of its use prior.

“Rather than try to ‘recapture’ or ‘reform’ the focus and beliefs from within an existing paradigm, it became clear to me that the solution was in returning to the most ancient sources and foundations of human societal civilizations in order to bring the clearest message through on what happened to bring things to the point they are now and what this might mean for the future,” says Free.
