In the previous articles, and image galleries, I have briefly
outlined a theory that the Bearded Serpent Gods of the ancient world
represented stargate or wormhole traveling civilizations. It is a
fact that virtually all of the great gods of myth sail in a ship,
though no one has yet offered a theory to account for the many
unusual traits of this celestial vehicle, which is constantly
portrayed as a serpent moving across the waters of the sky or as a
ship that turns into a bearded serpent man once it moors on
Solving this obscure question may be more vital than we think. The
Mayans tell us that in 2012 a ‘serpent rope’ is going to emerge from
the center of our Milky Way galaxy out of which will step a
god of enlightenment. John Major Jenkins has proposed, and I agree,
that the archaic term ‘serpent rope’ is interchangeable with the
modern scientific term ‘wormhole’ or ‘stargate’, i.e. a tunnel that
links two regions of space.
For more on the stargates of the gods read

One of the primary reasons that detractors says contact with an

separating Earth from the nearest inhabitable planet.
was one of these detractors. If there are a million technical
civilizations in the Milky Way galaxy, he estimated, the average
separation between civilizations will be about 300 light-years.
Since a light year is the distance which light travels in one year
(a little under six trillion miles), this implies that the one-way
transit time for an interstellar communication from the nearest
civilization will be some 300 years.
In his novel Contact, about first contact with an extraterrestrial
civilization Sagan proposed the stargate or
wormhole as a
scientifically valid way for a hypothetical, ‘arbitrarily advanced’
civilization to travel to Earth. Dr. Paul Davies, writing in
Scientific American, notes that here are two possible types of
wormholes; natural occurring ones that are the after-effects of the
Big Bang and sub atomic wormholes that must be pried open with
Based upon a comparison of the myths and art portraying the ancient
gods, I have proposed that the gods of ancient renown employed
wormholes. I have also theorized that a study of ancient words and
pictures can provide useful insights into the construction of future
In this article I intend to show that the ‘serpent rope’ or ‘ship’
of the Mayan enlightener shares the same symbolism as the
the Gods of other cultures, in particular the Sumerian and the
Egyptian. In this quest I am grateful for the work of

“Nibiru” (more technically and properly transliterated as “neberu”)
can mean several things and speaks volumes about the serpent rope of
the Mayans (and the ‘flaming sword’ placed at the gate of Eden).
the Sumerians the Nibiru was a creator of life that they called
NAM.TIL.LA.KU, “the god who maintains life.” Nam.Tilla.Ku literally
means Name or Destiny (NAM) of God or Shining One (KU) is Tula (TILLA).
It was the “creator of grain and herbs who causes vegetation to
sprout… who opened the wells (whales), apportioning the waters of
abundance” -- the “irrigator of Heaven and Earth.”
Nibiru was the A.SAR.U.LU.DU meaning “lofty, bright watery king
whose deep is plentiful.” Depictions of it show it as a ray emitting
body, says Sitchin.
The editors of the Chicago Assyrian Dictionary (CAD) have located
and compiled all the places where the word “nibiru” and related
forms of that word occur in extant tablets. A look at the CAD entry
(volume “N-2”, pp. 145-147) tells us immediately that the word has a
variety of meanings, all related to the idea of “crossing” or being
some sort of “crossing marker” or “crossing point”.
A cross is the symbol of the top Anunnaki god
Anu, and Annu is the
Egyptian place of crossing and equinox; also of Anit (Neith, Isis, Issa, Mary), who brings forth the child at the crossing.
The “root idea” of the nibiru word group and its forms almost always
means something like “crossing” or “gate.”
“Let Nibiru be the holder of the crossing place of heaven and
earth,” says one text. In the Gilgamesh epic, for example, we read
the line (later reprised by Jesus in the beatitudes in the
the Mount): “Straight is the crossing point (nibiru; a
narrow is the way that leads to it.”
“Ferry, ford”; “ferry boat”; “(act of) ferrying” are also
definitions of Nibiru. This is the very same definition of
When the accumulated meanings of Nibiru are tabulated we may
interpret this word as referring to a “star, gate,
Nibiru is the Bridging Planet, connecting the material, mortal side
of humanity with our higher spiritual immortal nature. On the other
side of this bridge is wondrous Garden of Eden, the hundreds of

The Sumerians and Babylonians celebrated
the serpent ship as the
vehicle of the E.A. (the Greek Kronos/Saturn). The priests of Lagash
knew him as Ningirsu, owner of “the beloved ship,” a celestial
vehicle “that rises up out of the dam of the deep.”
In fact, E.A.s ship, called the Magur-boat and esteemed as the
“Great Boat of Heaven,” is one of the more frequently- depicted
images in Mesopotamian art .
So closely is E.A. [Enki] connected with this serpent boat of heaven that
he is even depicted as a serpent-ship himself.

A ship constituted by a double-headed serpent sailing on the back of

Egyptian sources similarly identify this as the
cosmic serpent as the watery “pathway” traversed by the boat.
Egyptian Book of the Dead, for example, describes the ship sailing
over the “back” of the serpent-dragon Apepi.
In details from two illustrations in the
Book of the Dead we see
that the serpent ship (the ‘wormhole’), in the form of a
serpent, rests upon the world mountain or Primeval Hill, presented
in the first instance as a supporting stand or pillar and in the
second as a column of water. Featured on this ship is the Stairway
, the mythological
flight of steps
. The connection
between the ship and the Stairway is made in the Egyptian word
which means “steps” and also “ship’s mast”. The mast of the ship is
Stairway to Heaven, because the ship itself is the conduit
between Earth and Heaven.
The pictographic evidence is complemented by the texts, which show
that the subject is a revolving ship, traversing a circle around the
summit of the cosmic pillar or world mountain (i.e., the mount
serves as the axis of the ship’s revolution):
In the Egyptian myth of the heron it crossed the waters of life in

-- with its Stairway to Heaven.
