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.

Reviving the Secret Anunnaki Tradition of Babylon : ‘Mardukite Core’ 10th Anniversary “Gates of the Necronomicon”

“The first religious, spiritual and occult systems — those appearing in their original form as the mystical traditions of Mesopotamia — were rooted in a sacred relationship established between humans and gods. All of the original spiritual traditions, or “magic”, on the planet — the basis for everything manifesting after the fact — was rooted simply in ‘service’ to the gods. Specific priests and priest-kings were selected by ancient ‘laws’ set down by the Anunnaki, and their function was to serve as an intermediary, to stand between the general human population of ‘earth’ and the sky gods of ‘heaven’.” —JOSHUA FREE

[This mardukite blog post quotes Joshua Free from a live workshop regarding the ‘Mardukite Core’ given on November 15, 2009 while visiting the Pacific Northwest, networking in the underground occult community for the original release of the Year-1 ‘Mardukite Core’ as NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE, when the Year-2 GATES OF THE NECRONOMICON materials were about to be first developed.]

“It was only during the later evolution of these system-based traditions over thousands of years that resulted in the more ‘kabbalistic’ approaches available to modern seekers today — and this myriad of possible forms is so wrapped up in numerous progressive attempts drawn from human consciousness (and the perspective of the ‘observer’) that one could spend literally multiple human lifetimes in their unraveling — because the cumulative ‘systems’ have simply grown that big, by necessity of course; we just can’t have ‘free spirits’ coming in and out of reality all the time! We just can’t have it. This all being said — the initial effort made in reconstructing a spiritual tradition toward the original Sumerian Anunnaki is first and foremost to ‘establish and maintain a self-honest relationship’ with the Anunnaki. In terms of the Mardukite effort, we have retained the original semantics used by the Sumerians who first encountered these beings: ANUNNAKI.”

“The word ANUNNAKI is Sumerian — or Akkadian — in origin and means in one sense literally “heaven came to earth” and is interpreted by Zecharia Sitchin as “those who came down from heaven to earth” or else sky gods. In the past it has also been translated by scholars to mean “those who decree (cut) the fates,” or else “divine judges.” There are actually references to ‘Seven Judges’ on several ancient cuneiform incantation tablets. But these tablets also indicate that the Anunnaki seeded not only the ‘genetics’ of early modern humans but also the infrastructure — societal systems of human civilization — an evolution of the same systems and an extension of the same civilization that humans experience today! For many, the journey will end right there — for the way ahead in all of this appears too difficult or obscure…the esoteric and occult is called what it is for a reason, and will always be understood by the few, outside and apart from public (mass) opinion and scrutiny. For there is much simply not worth taking time to debate. There are many people who will simply not choose to know — comfortable as they are with the worldview they have already found.”

The emphasis of the “Year-1” Mardukite Chamberlains work — or ‘Mardukite Core’ — compiled in its entirety for NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE is specifically what could be considered “Mardukite” from an Egypto-Babylonian perspective. The works reviewed are the most famous and influential to come form NABU’s (Son of MARDUK) ‘Order of Priest-Scribes’ in ancient post-Sumerian Babylon — where cuneiform clay tablets were forged to show the Anunnaki deity MARDUK as supreme. In regards to the Anunnaki pantheon, a “Sumerian” background [relayed in Year-2 work, such as Liber-50, contained in GATES OF THE NECRONOMICON or THE SUMERIAN LEGACY by Joshua Free] will almost undermine ‘legitimacy’ concerning newer Babylonian hierarchies of the Anunnaki — a “Sumerian Secret” concealed in the Babylonian renderings emphasized in the “Year-1” reflection of a pure “Babylon-through-Babylonian-eyes.”

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 : Secrets of the Ages — NEW “Esoteric Edition” of John Toland’s 300 year old “Wizard’s Handbook” for the Learned

Gateways and doorways are for entrance and exit, and we are justifiably annoyed when people stand in them and talk. Perhaps that is the trouble with so many of our Gateways to Truth. There is too much talking in them, and too little getting through.
– Gertrude Moakley (1959)

JOHN TOLAND coined the term “pantheism” in 1705, describing the philosophical paradigm of Spinoza – a doctrine that identifies “God” or divinity with the whole of the Universe – All-as-One. As revealed in the pages of the PANTHEISTICON, this Secret Doctrine, observing a “Universal Law” animating and acting upon all things, is actually one-to-one with an “Esoteric” Truth known among learned brotherhoods since ancient times – and it is not the same as the “Exoteric” truths vulgarly thrown about and debated on the surface world for the Realm of the masses.

[This Mardukite Blog is excerpted from the newly released ‘Tercentenary Esoteric Edition’ of John Toland’s mystical classic Hermetic Philosophy Society Handbook on External and Internal Doctrines of the Ancients — PANTHEISTICON — revised and enhanced by JOSHUA FREE for the Mardukite Library Archives & NexGen Systemological Society as ‘Liber S88’ — #pantheisticon.]

PANTHEISM is named for a “divine energy” imbuing and encompassing All Things and the “Cosmic Law” that dictates the natures of All Things and their energetic interactions with each other. This Truth exists at all levels – those we can observe causally and even those we only see effects from. It exists independent of human belief and whims of fantasy, yet is responsible for sparking both. It was observed among elite classes of the ancient world just as it has been carried forth into modern “New Age” systems via mystic traditions of Freemasonry, Rosicrucians, Illuminati, and in the case of this wizard’s handbook of John Toland – the founding father of Antiquarian NeoDruidism.

Noted public “subscribers” to this form of PANTHEISM include:

#pantheisticon

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe,
Georg Wilhelm Friedrick Hegel,
Ludwig van Beethoven,
Ralph Waldo Emerson,
Alfred Lord Tennyson,
Henry David Thoreau,
Walt Whitman,
Leo Tolstoy,
Robert G. Ingersoll,
Nikola Tesla,
Carl Jung,
Albert Einstein,
D.H. Lawrence,
Ansel Adams,
Alan Watts,
Timothy Leary…

All of these folk made vast intellectual contributions and demonstrated an understanding of the Universe that required going beyond or outside of what the external or societal (mass) capacity allows: hence since the days of the Ancient Mystery School, “Esoteric Truth” has remained for the most part “occult” — “hidden” in the folds of those meeting in Societies outside the boundaries of the Realm.

Most famous depiction of John Toland (and he is holding the Pantheisticon)

JOHN TOLAND published his PANTHEISTICON in 1720 (along with a related work CLIDOPHORUS excerpted in the appendix of this Tercentenary 300th Anniversary Edition) with only a few copies circulating privately.

In spite of the “Universal Truth” professed, in its time, the title, use of pagan ideology and a liturgy imitating that of the Church of England was as offensive as the appearance of a “Satanic Bible.”

The PANTHEISTICON is so relevant to NexGen Mardukite and Systemological paradigm studies that Joshua Free prepared this specially enhanced and annotated edition to the public from within our private Esoteric Library Archives of our internal organization, presenting the “Secret of ALL Ages for the Learned”!
