Hamlet’s Mill

It appears I’m not the only one who thinks there was a worldwide, antediluvian astrology cult of monolith builders. Discovering precession is not a trivial accomplishment, as Charles Murray explains.

Once we grant the existence of the monomyth, we have a choice between two broad explanations: Either the human psyche is such that cultures everywhere produce extraordinarily similar myths (the view propounded by psychoanalyst Carl Jung and comparative-religion scholar Mircea Eliade, and accepted as well by Campbell), or the myths had a common historic origin. The problem with a common historic origin is that it requires us to posit a means by which the myths were shared across continents, and the standard paradigm of ancient history does not allow for that.

In 1969, science historians Giorgio de Santillana of M.I.T. and Hertha von Dechend of Frankfurt’s Goethe-Universitat came down on the historical side of the debate with a book entitled Hamlet’s Mill: An Essay on Myth and the Frame of Time. At its center is the proposition that the world’s mythologies were drawn from a common historical source with a common body of astronomical knowledge that included precession of the equinox.

This book is available to read online, if you don’t feel like shelling out $75 on Amazon for a used paperback copy. I haven’t read it yet, but it’s on my list because confirmation bias.

The precession of the equinox is an astronomical phenomenon caused by the earth’s wobble (the earth spins like a top that has lost a little speed). One of the results of the wobble is that, seen from the earth’s surface, the constellation against which the sun rises at the spring and fall equinoxes changes over time. At the beginning of 21C, the sun at equinox rises in front of the constellation Pisces—but only for another century or so, because, as the song says, we are at the dawning of the Age of Aquarius.

A complete cycle through all twelve constellations of the zodiac takes 25,920 years, with each “age” lasting 2,160 years. Thus the first salient fact about the precession of the equinox is that it cannot be discovered without accurate star records over a significant period of time.

So difficult only a caveman could do it. Meanwhile, we live in a far more progressive age wherein WordPress tells me I’m misspelling “procession”, which is likely an expression of my white privilege. It’s like I’m Hitler trying to discourage Katherine Johnson from being a genius astrophysicist, NOT OKAY.

It takes 72 years for the constellations to move one degree of arc—about as far along the horizon as the width of your forefinger held out at arm’s length. The standard histories hold that the Greek astronomer Hipparchus discovered precession of the equinox in about -134 [Ed: 134 BC] by comparing his star charts with ones that had been prepared a century and a half earlier.

De Santillana and von Dechend were not especially concerned with trying to date the original discovery of precession, mentioning almost in passing that the most likely date is about -5000, nor did they try to assign it to a lost civilization. Their concern was to establish their basic contention about the historical-astronomical nature of the monomyth. But, like it or not,
to demonstrate that precession was known millennia before Hipparchus and that this knowledge was disseminated throughout the world—both of which are minimal implications of Hamlet’s Mill—already means that the standard paradigm is in disarray. I will not try to ummarize the evidence in Hamlet’s Mill, but it should be emphasized that the book is not the work of sensationalists, but of exceptionally erudite scholars of the world’s mythic traditions.

Which is weird, because Wikipedia informs me that it’s a very unserious and reactionary bit of pseudoscience. You’d almost think there’s a diffuse class of people who have an overwhelming emotional urge to suppress dangerous anthropological ideas, which motivates them to form spontaneous, ad-hoc conspiracies and destroy all physical evidence of elongated skulls. Ah, but that’s crazy talk, because modern man are practically gnostic GODS compared to their retarded chimp ancestors.

Let me put it this way. Have you ever heard of Plato, Aristotle, Socrates? Morons.

Hamlet’s Mill is only one source of evidence that the advocates of an early and advanced lost civilization present on behalf of the hypothesis that precession was known much earlier than Hipparchus. some of the archaeological evidence, which includes purported astronomical and mathematical features of the design of the great ancient monuments around the world, is intriguing. But in trying to evaluate it, we are once again confronted with advocates who appear to be torturing the data until they confess. The limited point here is that the core scholarly work on the monomyth as it relates to knowledge of the precession of the equinox poses challenges to the standard paradigm that justify investigation.

Human Accomplishment

Murray is a lot more conservative in his speculations than I am, but I take it as a good sign that some rando, pointy-haired academics are obliquely tracking the exact same ideas. I don’t mind getting ahead of myself though, so here’s what I think: the Tower of Babel was both a real monolith and an allegory for the globalist Luciferian religion that was also an extremely stable anarcho-tyrranical socio-political system. It was so perfect in its production of constant evils that God actually stepped in and personally sabotaged their technological specialists (maybe with some kind of strong magnetic field?), then wiped out the remaining, atomized degenerates with a massive flood around the time of the Younger Dryas.

Since you’ve already read this far, here’s what I think the plan is for the future, as near as I can determine:

1. Secularism, to “kill God” as Nietzsche said.
2. Fascism, to set up statolatry.
3. Zodiacism, to support “Great Man” worship as national avatars.
4. Emperor worship, to set the stage for Luciferianism.
5. Luciferianism proper, and the promise that men can become gods if they follow well enough. Persecution enabled by the complete atomization of people from each other, the godhood pursuit making them supremely narcissistic. This is the diametric opposite of Jesus’ radical message of worship via service.

Or maybe this whole “Bible” thing is a mushroom trip by some whirling dervish in Greater Arabia that eats foreskins, because that just makes sense. In fact, I hear Jesus wasn’t even a real historical person, WAKE UP SHEEPLE.

    Perhaps you’ve also heard of Walter Cruttenden’s Lost Star of Myth and Time. He sources Hamlet’s Mill, but his hypothesis is that precession is due to the sun’s binary orbit with Sirius. Such precession alters man’s consciousness through time, and we developed myths as a way to encode and preserve knowledge the ancients knew would be lost through declining intelligence but would gain back when consciousness was again raised. Pretty heady stuff.

    I don’t think their “technology” would be immediately recognizable as being such to us and would probably have a kind of “organic” or “crystalline” character that we see represented (albeit crudely) in the aesthetics of Halo’s Covenant, Starcraft’s Protoss and 40k’s Eldar races.

    Top kek.

    I will be back on the forum and whatnot once I’ve autismically immersed myself in scripture/esoterica/Christianity (more like Christ-INSANITY, AM I RIGHT???) to a degree I feel is sufficient to even know wtf I’m blathering about

      Disagree. I think crystals are dream logic for well-realized, conscious ideas (e.g. materia vs. mako or lifestream). And you can’t have physics without metaphysics, as the recent regression to flat earth cosmology shows.

      Your discipline in staying off the internet has been inspiring (until now :-P). It has not gone unnoticed.

        [WOO]
        Sorry, I did a poor job of conveying what I was trying to say. I don’t literally believe that it would be made of “magical crystals”. What I mean is that were a modern person to be exposed to this technology with no prior contextual foreknowledge, when the visual sense data of what they were looking at entered their brain, the first subconscious association that would appear would likely be that they were looking at something “crystalline” or perhaps “organic” or otherwise somehow “alive” (this is why I’m using “air quotes” for these “vague, broad terms” that loosely “describe” something that is “sophisticated” to the “extent” that it “escapes” my “powers” of “description”, as it were, “quote unquote”).

        You wouldn’t need much of what we currently consider technical aptitude to operate and maintenance it, as it could likely heal/regenerate itself from a steady diet of human sacrifices; rather than an electronic interface it would also probably respond to verbal and/or symbolic or emotional inputs (probably linked to the same esoteric symbolism embedded in the deep human subconscious that we see represented in the fictional Protoss/Covenant/Eldar/Zeal/The Mammon Machine/elsewhere)

        Another way of looking at it which may be helpful: imagine you’re an archaic human in Whatever Year, BC, and you encounter an advanced, semi-sentient security system with ballistic or incendiary projectile weaponry, auto-locomotive and targeting capability/tactical AI and whatnot. Such an entity would certainly be beyond your ability to describe; you might end up calling it something like “a flaming sword which turned every way” or “a flaming, whirling sword” (http://biblehub.com/genesis/3-24.htm)

          So TL;DR I ain’t sayin’ that it wuz magic and sheeit, just that it wuz magic and sheeit. However, it does speak volumes that we still don’t know how those pyramids were built.

          I don’t think the humans back then would have it in them to build such a thing. But I do think a certain butthurt autist, who was nonetheless second only to God in knowledge, would know exactly how to build dem purrmid spaceshipz, and what’s more, would be very eager to do so, being that he hates all humans.

            • Ophiucuck says:

              See, in reading the Bible, I’m having a problem where I’ll get through like two pages but then I’ll have to stop and write ten pages. I’ve basically given up trying to describe/convey what I’m seeing with words and am now using image manipulation to put together a kind of thingamajig-doodad-thingy to translate what I’m seeing (or like, “experiencing” <whoa, far out, man) in my mind's eye.

              This thingamajig-doodad is primarily woo-based, metaphysical, yet somehow logically consistent (but only if you can "believe" it is, if that makes sense). It's got archetypes, it's got insights, it's got epicycles both pyrrhic and redemptive. It's got ITZ. ITZ got phrenology, psychology, astronomy, thermodynamics, memetics, magic and meme-magic. It's got symbols, forms, legends, myths, particles and waves. It's got colors and metaphors and energy both high and low. It sees connections. It sees patterns. It sees that connections *are* the pattern. It's got light, it's got darkness, and thus it knows that the Enlightenment was the actual Dark Ages. I think you're going to really like it, and I think "The Fundamental 'Aboutness' of all Things" is going to like it, too, since that's what it's celebrating.

            • Ophiucuck says:

              Oh and it’s got meridians, too. Don’t forget the meridians!

            • Ophiucuck says:

              Basically, it’s like an aesthetic-type thing that doesn’t so much demonstrate the sensibility of being a Christian so much as it demonstrates the absurdity of *not* being a Christian. I’m thinking it will be a group/collaborative effort by all the Edenist niggaz by the end; there’s speculative stuff about the human chemistry reactions and how they unfold and coalesce and are influenced by the thermodynamic stuff and whatnot that other people will probably have to fill in. Plus a bunch of other woo/meme-tier nonsense.

    There are already Luciferian religions, (real old Luciferian Traditions, not hokey modern inventions) and real emperor worship, and neither of those is getting more popular with time. (if you want to discuss this further PM me)
