The Great Old Ones of the Lovecraftian Legend
http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/cienc ... real15.htm
The War in the Heavens - The Battle between Tiamat and MardukThe Secret Doctrine given to the elite castes of mankind by the “Anunnaki” (the gods of ancient Sumeria and Atlantis), has been passed down through the ages, not only to the Masons, Templars, Rosicrucians, and other fraternal orders which perpetuate the tradition, but also to the teenage geeks and “gamers” of today.
The “Grail Blood" and the “bloodline of the Great Old Ones” are the same thing. They also represent the same archetypes as legendary sea-monsters such as Leviathan or Dagon, the “Lords of the Deep” and gods of the “underworld”, or “Abyss” recorded in the legends of many ancient cultures.
It takes only a cursory examination of H.P. Lovecraft’s most quintessential work, The Call of Cthulhu to see that his entire system of mythology is based on The Book of Enoch, the Nephilim story in Genesis, and the universal tale of the fall of Atlantis.
In this story, Lovecraft’s main character finds a strange carved idol in his late grand-uncle’s affects.
The description of the idol bears a striking resemblance to the descriptions of the Sumerian god-king Enki, also known as Dagon or Oannes, a half-human, half-fish combination who was known as the “Lord of the Flood", and was said to rise out of the sea every day to teach his secret knowledge to those who followed him.
He is mentioned in I Samuel:5, when the Philistines capture the Ark of the Covenant and place it in the Temple of Dagon.
This is exactly the behavior that is ascribed to the sons of the Watchers, or Nephilim, the giants who wrought havoc upon the world, oppressed and devoured all of the gods’ living creation to feed their own voracious appetites. Because of the pride and destructive behavior of the Great Old Ones, their empire city, R’lyeh, sank beneath the ocean as part of a punishment by natural disaster mercifully imposed by God.
This is exactly what is said to have happened to the island kingdom of Atlantis, which also sank because of the pride of its inhabitants. It is also what is said about the Nephilim in the Bible, who, along with their offspring, were destroyed by God via the Flood of Noah. The fact that the Great Old Ones are lead by a being called “Cthulhu” is significant, for “Thule” is another name for Atlantis, and the Nazis believed that it was literally located inside the Earth, in the “underworld”, the city of “Agartha” or “Agade”, the “abode of the Gods.”
The “Hollow Earth”, or underworld seems to be the place where R’lyeh ultimately sank to, where Cthulhu and the rest of the Great Old Ones now remain, sleeping in their watery tomb, “dead but dreaming”, as Lovecraft now describes it. There they are, waiting for the day when they will awaken, their city rise from the waves, and their empire once again hold dominion over the whole earth.
This echoes the story of the Watchers or the Nephilim, who were said to be imprisoned by God inside the Earth, or in “the Abyss”, which was a word used by the ancients to describe the ocean. The theme of a subterranean Lord, imprisoned in the underworld, who will one day awaken from his death-like slumber to reclaim his kingdom is, as I have established in other articles, a very common archetype, most notable in the form of Kronos.
Called “the Forgotten Father” and “the Hidden One”, Kronos was the leader of the Titans, and the King of Atlantis, whose kingdom was cast down into the Abyss, and who was imprisoned therein, to be thereafter known as “the Dark Lord” of the underworld. And there is clearly an etymological connection between “Titan” and “Teitan”, otherwise spelled “Satan.”
The Titans, or Satans, and the Nephilim are clearly the same as the Great Old Ones, and Kronos, otherwise known as Saturn, or Satan, is clearly the same as Cthulhu. As I have established, he is also synonymous with Dagon or Oannes, who is referred to in the Bible as Leviathan, the beast who will rise from the sea at the Apocalypse. The return of Cthulhu, the Great Old Ones, and the city of R’lyeh would appear to be Lovecraft’s way of depicting the Apocalypse.
When the main character in The Call of Cthulhu manages to interview an actual member of the Cthulhu cult to determine their beliefs, the descriptions parallel precisely the tales of the Nephilim, the Titans, and the war in Heaven between God and Lucifer, as well as the fall of the Atlantean empire.
This was that cult, and the prisoners said it had always existed and always would exist, hidden in the distant wastes and dark places all over the world until the time when the Great Priest Cthulhu, from his dark house in the mighty city of R’lyeh under the waters should rise and bring the Earth again under his sway. Some day he would call, when the stars were ready, and the secret cult would always be ready to liberate him.
This clearly describes the secret Luciferian doctrine of the gods being transmitted to their offspring, “the first man”, just as the serpent gave wisdom to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
They created a covenant with that man, and a cult of magic, of ritual and sacrifice, in order to preserve their infernal secrets, one of which is so secret that it could not be talked about, only whispered.
This is what has been done in the rites of Freemasonry, Rosicrucianism, the Knights Templar, the Greek and Egyptian mystery schools, the Sufis, the Assassins, and countless other secret occult orders, which Lovecraft was no doubt alluding to when he referred to the “cult which had never died... had always existed, and always would exist”, preserving the teachings of the “Forgotten Father” until such time as he should rise again from the sea to once more rule the Earth. The connections to Leviathan and the rise of the Antichrist do not even need to be elucidated.
Lovecraft, like the prophet Enoch, and like ancient man himself, conceived of the Atlantean gods or Nephilim as possessing supernatural power, and, like Enoch, says that this power comes from the stars - that these beings in fact had come from the stars themselves, and seem to be metaphysically affected by the movement of the stars, being able to resurrect from the dead only when the stars were in a certain position.
Likewise, the Atlantean god-kings purposely associated themselves with the stars and the planets, taking on the personifications of planets and constellations, each of which had a particular “energy” or plain of existence associated with it.
This energy is further manipulated by the prayers and rituals of the cult members in Lovecraft’s stories, who are loyal to the Great Old Ones, and wish to see their kingdom rise again. In much the same way, Masons, Rosicrucians and other occultists today perform rituals in hope of bringing about the “Great Work” called the “New World Order”, a new Golden Age, just like the one that covered the antediluvian world when the Atlantean god-kings (whom they revere) ruled over the Earth directly.
The Eye in the Pyramid on our dollar bill, which represents the New World Order, is clearly a symbol of this newly-risen kingdom of Atlantis, “watched over” by the All-Seeing Eye, which could just as easily be the eye of Dagon, or Leviathan, or Cthulhu. It even looks reptilian, like it belongs on the face of a dragon.
The rise of R’lyeh, the New World Order, the New Atlantis, the New Jerusalem, the Golden Age, and even the Apocalypse - these are all terms for the same resurrection of the ancient global kingdom of the gods.
Such a resurrection is also described in Aleister Crowley’s The Book of the Law when he writes about the coming “Age of Horus” and the return of the rule of the gods, as well as their offspring, the human “kings”.
This age of the glorious rule of the Old Ones, and the land which they ruled over, is so imilar to Atlantis, Thule, Lemuria, and all of the other mythical lost civilizations as to be blatantly obvious, and it is clear that it was the biblical Deluge that put an end to their kingdom.
In The Nameless City, he delves explicitly into the hollow Earth, describing the discovery of a subterranean passage filled with the caskets of dead reptilian bodies, who ad obviously, at one time, lived inside the Earth.
This is clearly another reference to the recurring theme in Lovecraft’s work of sunken Atlantis rising from the ocean, which as we have established, is also a common theme in world mythology.
Clearly, then, what this character has discovered are the remains of a high civilization of sea-faring, ocean-obsessed people, which is exactly what Atlantis is described as being, and why their kings, or “gods” were depicted as half-man, half-fish.
As I have previously established, Dagon, one of the kings of Atlantis, was symbolically the same as Kronos, Oannes, Enki, and therefore Satan. He was one of the Nephilim, Watchers, or fallen angels upon which Lovecraft’s “Great Old Ones” are based.
The themes alluded to in Lovecraft’s work were taken to their utmost conclusion by the authors and editors of The Necronomicon, based on the imaginary grimoire that Lovecraft wrote of repeatedly in connection to Cthulhu and the Old Ones. This was supposedly a book of black magic with spells aimed at causing the sunken city of R’lyeh to rise again, and the “dead but dreaming” Old Ones to awaken from their slumber.
“The Necronomicon is, according to Lovecraft’s tales, a volume written in Damascus in the Eighth Century, A.D., by a person called the ‘Mad Arab’, Abdul Alhazred. It must run roughly 800 pages in length, as there is a reference in one of the stories concerning some lacunae on a page in the 700’s. It had been copied and reprinted in various languages - the story goes - among them Latin, Greek and English.
Doctor Dee, the Magus of Elizabethan fame, was supposed to have possessed a copy and translated it. This book, according to the mythos, contains the formulae for evoking incredible things into visible appearance, beings and monsters which dwell in the Abyss and Outer Space of the human psyche.”
The system of gods, legends, and rituals presented in the book are as old as civilization itself, having originated from the oldest civilization accepted by historians, one of the greatest states in the empire of the god-kings of Atlantis: ancient Sumeria.
There is a dualistic notion inserted into The Necronomicon that is completely absent in Lovecraft’s work. Lovecraft’s “Old Ones” were primordial beings, beyond good and evil. That was the essence of their power. In The Necronomicon, the “Great Old Ones” have been split into two factions: the “Elder Gods” and the “Ancient Ones” - the good guys and the bad guys.
“Basically there are two ‘sets’ of gods in the mythos: the Elder Gods, about whom not much is written, save that they are a stellar race that occasionally comes to the rescue of man, and which corresponds to the Christian ‘light’; and the Ancient Ones, about whom much is told, sometimes in great detail, who correspond to Darkness.
These latter are the Evil Gods who wish nothing but ill for the Race of Man, and who constantly strive to break into our world through a gate or door that leads from the Outside In. There are certain people among us, who are devotees of the Ancient Ones, and who try to open the Gate, so that this evidently repulsive organization may once again rule the Earth. Chief among this is Cthulhu, typified as a Sea Monster, dwelling in the Great Deep, a sort of primeval Ocean...”
I have sincerely tried to figure out what the essential difference is between the Ancient Ones and the Elder Gods.
The Elder Gods are lead by a great trinity: Anu, Enlil and Enki, three of the most well-known ancient god-kings of Sumeria, and perhaps, Atlantis. Anu held the seat of kingship, the inheritance of which was disputed by his sons, Enki and Enlil, leading to a catastrophic war that destroyed much of the Earth.
This is recorded in the Sumerian Enuma Elish, as well as the biblical tale of the “war in Heaven.” In the Sumerian texts, there is a race of gods descended from this trinity called the “Anunnaki”, analogous to the “sons of God” of the Bible, or the “Watchers” of The Book of Enoch.
In The Necronomicon the strife between Enki and Enlil is completely ignored, and the Anunnaki are considered to be a separate race, a faction of the Ancient Ones. They live in the Absu, or Abyss, the great underworld ocean, which is also called “Cutha” or “Kutu.”
This place is also described as “the Sea beneath the Seas”, and clearly indicates an ocean inside the Earth which coincides with descriptions of the hollow Earth being largely filled with water.
The Elder Gods of The Necronomicon seem most definitely to be associated with the planets. In the chapter entitled “Of the Zonei and Their Attributes” (“Zonei” referring to the “zones” or orbits in which the planets travel), we learn that beneath Enki, Enlil and Anu are seven planetary deities.
The ancient god-kings of Atlantis associated themselves with the stars and the planets, taking on the attributes that these planets were supposed to represent.
The Ancient Ones, for their part, seem to be associated both with the Abyss, or underground sea, and with the constellations as well.
There seem to be three star systems in particular that the Ancient Ones are associated with, which have given birth to what The Necronomicon describes as:
“The Cult of the Dog, the Cult of the Dragon, and the Cult of the Goat”
(All cults that would be perceived as pagan or “Satanic” today) corresponding to the stars Draconis (the Dragon), Sirius (the Dog-Star), and Capricorn, (the Goat). The Necronomicon’s narrator Abdul Alhazred explains that:
“There shall forever be a war between us and the race of Draconis, for the race of Draconis was ever-powerful in ancient times, when the first temples were built in Magan, and they drew down their power from the stars...”
Many would interpret this to means that the Ancient Ones, “the Race of Draconis”, are a lizard race of extraterrestrials from Draco, much like the concept promoted by conspiracy theorist David Icke.
The Ancient Ones are reviled for teaching man secret wisdom, arts and sciences that are “unnatural”, because they enable man to conquer nature, just as the Watchers did in The Book of Enoch. In that text, the forbidden knowledge consists of math, writing, astronomy, and the like. Here it seems to be associated mostly with the forbidden arts of ritual magic, which, if performed by the Elder Gods would be perfectly alright, but which “are unlawful to our people.”
And who exactly are “our people” in this schematism? In “The Testimony of the Mad Arab”, Abdul Alhazred writes of his first encounter with the worshippers of the Ancient Ones, who were performing a sacrificial ritual around a large, floating, gray rock, upon which was carved three symbols.
Of the first, the pentagram, he writes:
“The first is the Sign of Our Race from beyond the Stars, and is called “Arra” in the tongue of the Scribe who taught it to me, an emissary of the Elder Ones. In the tongue of the eldest city of Babylon, it was Ur.”
The pentagram was indeed called the “Ar”, or “Plough Sign” by the ancient Sumerians, and some have speculated that this is where the word “Aryan” comes from.
The gods of ancient Sumeria were depicted with blue eyes, and their language is clearly the root of our “Indo-European”, or Aryan system of languages. Is it so much to assume that the Sumerians were in fact themselves “Sum-Aryans”? This would seem to confirm it.
But the blood of the Aryans has a special quality to it in this view, for it possesses the co-mingled powers of both the Ancient Ones and the Elder Gods. As L.K. Barnes writes:
“Man was created from the blood of the slain commander of the Ancient Army, Kingu, thereby making man a descendant of the Blood of the Enemy, as well as the ‘breath’ of the Elder Gods; a close parallel to the ‘Sons of God and the daughters of men’ reference in the Old Testament.”
Indeed it is a close parallel, for these Sumerian legends of the war in Heaven are the source of this later Biblical tale. A trace of these ancient versions can be found in what L.K. Barnes refers to as the “centerpiece” of The Necronomicon, “The Magan Text.”
The Magan Text tells the story of the creation of our present Earth, and of the human species. It starts out much like Genesis, with the emergence of creation out of the formless void of chaos, which is referred to as “the Waters” in both texts.
The beginning of the poem describes a time “before the Elder Gods had been brought forth”, meaning before the planets had been formed. “Uncalled by name, their destinies unknown and undetermined”, it says - the word “destiny” referring to the gravitational orbits of the planet. “Then it was that the gods were formed within the Ancient Ones.” This means that the Ancient Ones represent forces that pre-existed the creation of matter itself - time, space, electromagnetic and nuclear forces - the primeval void that was the womb of creation.
Indeed, the Hebrew word for Abyss that is found in Genesis 1:2 is, Hooke tells us, tehom, which the majority of scholars take to be a survival of the name of the chaos-dragon Tiamat or Leviathan that is identified closely with Kutulu or Cthulhu within the pages. They are mentioned independently of each other, indicating that somehow Kutulu is the male counterpart of Tiamat, similar to Absu.
Since the Elder Gods were begotten of the womb of Tiamat, it makes sense that they would be made of the same material, the primordial energy, or “prima materia” that she represents. That is where they would ultimately get their planetary power from. That is, therefore, where the Earth would get its power too.
One is reminded of the myth of the Black Sun, the ball of “prima materia” that supposedly exists in the center of the hollow Earth, providing the “dragon current” that resides beneath the Earth, and corresponding to the myth of Leviathan in the Abyss. The myth of the Black Sun comes from the ancient belief that the Sun died in the West every night, turned black, and descended into the underworld.
The Magan Text, then, may refer not only to how the Earth was formed out of the rending of a larger planet, but how the so-called "Black Sun", in its guise as Tiamat, or Leviathan was purportedly deposited in its center.
The following passage describes how the planets became disturbed in their orbits within the womb of Tiamat (space, the Abyss), thereby “rebelling” against her.
What follows is essentially the same as the war in Heaven.
Tiamat creates children (monsters) out of her womb to attack the rebellious Elder Gods. These monsters are lead by a demon called Kingu. Enki, “The Lord of the Magick Waters”, summons his son Marduk to do battle with the “Ancient Horde.” Enki represents the planet Saturn, and therefore, Satan, while Marduk, attributed to the planet Jupiter.
Marduk is said to have been victorious against the Ancient Ones, and caused them to fall from Heaven. His father Enki, “Lord of All Magick”, told him “the Secret Name, the Secret Number, and the Secret Shape”, thereby enabling him to access the powers of magic.
One would assume that this represents cosmic forces causing planets to smash into one another. And from the dead body of Tiamat, the Earth was formed. After it was all done, Marduk was responsible for re-establishing the planetary orbits, and basically taking over.
He himself became the creator of the new Heaven and the new Earth, while the Ancient Ones were imprisoned in the underworld:
It is this “issuing from the Earth” aspect that we should examine now, since that is where the Ancient Ones are said to be currently located.
This may link up with the claim by some that the hollow Earth, in which these fallen gods lie sleeping, exists in another dimension, which is why it is not acknowledged by science.
That the "underworld" is literally inside of the Earth is quite obvious from the text. As Ishtar descends, she must go through seven chambers, which clearly involves traveling through a series of tunnels into the depths of the Earth.
Well, there are those who hold that the gods of Sumeria were actually real flesh-and-blood kings of human civilization during the golden age of Atlantis. But they were more than human. The kings of Atlantis were somewhere in between man and god.
This “multi-dimensional” aspect is one way to explain the physical countenance of their human/god hybrid children as they are described in various myths: they were said to have been monsters and giants. It is this multi-dimensional force that the gods taught man to utilize in the rites of magic and occultism, which the gods invented and passed onto their human offspring, drawn from the power of the stars and planets, including the telluric “dragon force” of Cthulhu that lives within the Earth, and slumbers at the base of the human spine.
L.K. Barnes confirms that Sumer was not just the birthplace of civilization, but also of religion and ritual magic. Here is where the rebellious ones taught their cult to the “first man”, as Lovecraft described in The Call of Cthulhu.
Author Nicholas de Vere describes such ancestral conjuring rituals as being the central rites of “royal magic.” Summoning ancestral ghosts is also the purpose of Voodoo and Santeria ritual.
This is, mythologically, the same battle which caused the kingdom of Atlantis to sink to its watery depths, the war in Heaven in which the sons of God or Watchers were imprisoned within the underworld, their mighty kingdom destroyed, all because they dared to pass their divine seed, and their divine knowledge onto lowly humanity.
Then the age of the gods will begin anew: the New Atlantis, the New Jerusalem, the New World Order.
Nibiru or Planet XNIBIRU: the 12th Planet, The Planet of Crossing, home of the Anunnaki (the Nefilhim), the red star/comet.
From a Land beyond the stars, Nibiru appeared to the ancients. It was called the 12th Planet by the ancient Sumerians because it is a member of our solar system (ancients included the Moon and Sun as planets). However, unlike the other planets in our solar system, which are in a singular orbit around the sun, Nibiru is in a binary orbit between two suns: our sun and another cold, unlit sun far out in our galaxy, making its orbit eliptical. Nibiru returns to our solar system approximately every 3,600 years (1 Shar).
A half a million years ago, Tiamat (Earth) was not located in Space where it is today. It orbited farther out from the Sun, in between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. Mars was orbiting at a distance much closer to the Sun than now and was quite habitable, with a temperate climate and liquid water. This fact has been verified numerous times by NASA and other scientific groups.
What those groups do not acknowledge is the fact that Mars had a different orbital pattern than today. Then, too, Tiamat's system was closer to the Star Sirius (or Sothis, as the ancient Egyptians called it). This solar system and the Sirian planetary system are part of a unit. The two systems are gravitationally connected to one another, a new fact that is now beginning to gain widespread consensus from the scientific community.
Our "Sirian Regional System" as a unit revolves around the Central Sun Alcyone in the Pleiades Cluster, which might be termed "the Pleiades Quadrant". This greater sector revolves around the Galactic Center, in the direction of the Stars of Sagittarius, once every 200,000,000 years or so.
What is so significant about our present-day epoch is that certain great cycles relating to orbital alignments within the Pleiades Quadrant and between this Quadrant and the Galactic Center are starting to repeat themselves. The Mayans of Mesoamerica also acknowledged this and put it into their ancient calendar. In fact their Great Cycle ends on December 21st 2012!
NIBIRU's 3,600 Earth year orbit is known for causing catastrophic events on our planet - the Deluge, the ancient flood of Egypt. The Sumerian Creation Myth and the Magan text of the Necronomicon tell of the war between Tiamat and Marduk/Nibiru. The two massive planets collided breaking Tiamat in half (the other half turned into what is now called the Asteriod Belt or The Abode of Heaven), and knocking the Earth into its new current orbit around the sun, leaving Tiamat with just one moon, Kingu.
It is said it was then that the Anunnaki came to Earth and took over the lands mining for gold to use it for energy. They built the pyramids of Iraq, Egypt, Mexico, and Central America to use as Control Centers for their space stations. They took Tiamat's native Neanderthal man and mixed them with their own DNA to make what are known as modern day humans to use as slaves and to breed like sheep.
The Anunnaki are still out there. And they will make their return soon. Beware the Wrath of the Ancient Ones! For they look out from the Watchtowers of the Gate of ABSU while lays the mighty TIAMAT, Dead but Dreaming.

The SUMERIANS also mentioned a "twelfth" planet called "NIBIRU", one whose elliptical orbit brought it close to Earth for a brief period about every 3,600 years.
The Sumerians and later also the Babylonians mention about a long time ago in Ancient times in which Nibiru (Marduk), until that time a stranger in our solar system, had a fight in heaven with Tiamat and Kingu. At that time, millions of years ago, the satellites of Nibiru (Marduk) collided with Tiamat (a planet at least two times the mass of Earth) and broke it in 2 parts.
In accordance to the theory of Zecharia Sitchin and others, the 2 parts of Tiamat were forced to another orbit around the Sun, One part was broken in small parts and are now called The Asteroid Belt (between Mars and Jupiter) and Asteroids Meteorites and Comets. The other part was forced into his new orbit between Venus and Mars and became the Earth. Kingu became the Moon of the "new planet" Earth. Nibiru was forced into an elliptical orbit around the Sun and its new orbit was from that time on a cycle of 3,600 years around the Sun.
