Bee In Eden Show 09 – All This Fuss About an Old Map

“One sees two familiar patterns: a financial elite that is a) actively seeking ancient sources of information, and b) seeking to monopolize and suppress it.”— Joseph P. Farrell, “Financial Vipers of Venice,” p.205

This episode of the Bee In Eden is Part Two of our series about Antarctica. This installment is entitled “All This Fuss About an Old Map” and is a re-post of my original blog posted here at

Here is the Youtube link to hear my review of this information with slideshow of illustrations.

In Part One of this Antarctica saga [linked here], we scratched the surface of the mysteries of our most southern continent. We were left hanging with an introduction to the expedition — or rather, invasion — codenamed Operation Highjump. The massive undertaking was led by Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd Jr. exactly 70 years ago this month. By the way, let’s get this little factoid out in the open: Admiral Byrd was a member of the Freemasons. And not just any Freemasonic Lodge, but THE Freemasonic Temple of Temples, the one located in Washington D.C. Hold that under your hat for later. [per his Wikipedia profile linked here.]

I had heard of Operation Highjump but had never paid much attention to it. I knew Admiral Byrd was the decorated American who is credited with exploring so much of the South Pole. And that’s about where my knowledge of the subject ended. I wasn’t too excited about it. This is like picking up a lone, stray puzzle piece off the floor and your response is, “Meh, that’s pretty. Ok, let’s go do something else.”

As anybody who has ever completed a jigsaw puzzle knows, the fascination and the obsession over the completion of the picture grows once you start interlocking a handful of those stray puzzle pieces. And I can already see that this same thing is beginning to happen over the question of “What, oh what, is going on in Antarctica?”

To begin at the beginning, would it surprise you to learn that, once again, we turn our attention to those “voices from the dust,” as author David Astle liked to put it. Redundantly, all roads lead to Babylon.

A Map Thousands of Years Old

Like a plot point from a Nicholas Cage movie, the mystery swirls around A MAP. Here is our first, undisputed link in the evidence chain: an ancient map that was –ahem!– “discovered” in 1929 by German theologian Gustav Adolf Deissmann and soon drew the attention of American professor, Charles Hapgood, now famous for his “pole shift” theories. Hold that year on the back burner of your brain because it will play a huge role in the next blog that I will write about Antarctica. (Yes, this is starting to turn into a drama series.)


I write “discovered” in quotes because 1929 saw the second, or possibly third or fourth or who knows, “discovery” of the map. The map itself was well known in elite circles no later than the days of Christopher Columbus. For that history, we turn to two books written by Joseph P. Farrell [his website is linked here]: “Financial Vipers of Venice” and “Thrice Great Hermetica and the Janus Age.”

It is vital that we understand WHO had this map and WHEN they had it before we can understand the esoteric interest that the Nazi Party held in this map as the storm of WWII began to brew in 1930. In fact, I will let you chew on this history data point that will be discussed in the next blog:

Mainstream history teaches us that the first sovereign state that Hitler invaded as he launched World War II was Poland, on September 01, 1939. But this is not true. The first territory that Hitler assumed control of was Norway’s claim on the northern coast of ANTARCTICA earlier that very same year of 1939! All of this happened about ten years after the re-discovery of the Piri Reis map in 1929.

The above-mentioned books by Joseph P. Farrell tell the story of this singular map. Mr. Piri Reis was an Ottoman Turkish Admiral who lived around the years 1465-1555 A.D., which makes him a contemporary of Christopher Columbus. It is known that the good admiral claimed to have based his map on Columbus’s copies. The map that is named after this Turkish explorer has caused such a stir because it shows that the continent of Antarctica was well known in the ancient world and that continent is presented on the map with amazingly accurate coastal contours. But the real shocker is this: the map shows contours as the continent would have appeared before it was covered with ice! So how long ago would THAT be? It is presumed that Antarctica has been covered with ice for 12,000 years (or about half of one Mayan Calendar precessional cycle – just google the phrase “precession of the equinoxes.”)

In his research, Dr. Farrell discovered that the Piri Reis map is not the only one that shows an ice-free Antarctica. We know that that there are maps that date back even earlier, at least to 1339 A.D. These maps comprised the “portolanos” that were being used by European navigators. Naturally, here is the next question: Where did these maps come from?

Here I will quote the “Vipers” book beginning at page 196 and, as usual, anything within [brackets] are my own interpolations:

We speculated there [in Chapter Two] that the presence of the Byzantine humanists Bessarion and Plethon among the Greek delegation to the council [of Medici banksters] was the contact point for the Florentine merchants who may have been seeking lost knowledge that could only have come from the imperial archives of the East Roman Empire in Constantinople…. [my note: by the way, it is my opinion that the Eastern Orthodox connection to these ancient maps may comprise part of the reason for why Patriarch Kirill was called to Antarctica in 2016.]

It seemed as though somebody early in the 14th century [so, as early as the year 1301] had found an amazingly good chart which nobody was able to improve upon for two hundred years…. Hapgood notes that Nordenskiold believed that these measures were derived from Carthaginian and Phoenician sources….

Then the medieval portolanos [naval maps], exemplified in the Dulcert portolano [the Antarctica map that pre-dates even the Piri Reis map], must represent some hidden tradition of secret knowledge, handed down from High Antiquity and antedating even Ptolemy and the renowned library of Alexandria [!!]

Dr. Farrell goes on to explain a technical feature related to the latitude and longitude positions of the ancient maps. The later Piri Reis map — for all its accuracy — was off by some 4.5%. Dr. Farrell then says, “When Piri Reis’ map was redrawn with this correction [related to the true circumference of the earth], an astounding thing resulted, one with profound implications.”

It could only mean that the Greek geographers of Alexandria, when they prepared their world map using the circumference of Eratosthenes, had in front of them source maps that had been drawn without the Eratosthenian error, that is, apparently without any discernible error at all … suggesting that the people who had originated the maps possessed a more advanced science than that of the Greeks [!!]

[page 201] The implication from this is that the 360-degree circle and the twelve-wind system were ancient before the rise of Babylonia and long before Tyre and Sidon were built by the Phoenicians. Babylonian science was thus, perhaps, a heritage from a much older culture. [!!]

Holy Moly. What Dr. Farrell is saying is that a body of secret knowledge — a body that includes far more than just some old map — has been carefully handed down and protected by an interlocking network of secret societies and fortified temples for thousands and thousands of years. And by “fortified temple,” we must, of necessity include that great temple in Rome — the Vatican.

What Did the Pope Know and When Did He know It?

The picture that our jigsaw is beginning to form is that every elitist and his grandma knew about Antarctica as recently as one thousand years ago. This is why I softly chuckle to myself everytime I see some new Internet claim about the sudden “revelations” of pyramids and hidden cities. Read my lips: the Babylonian Bankster Priesthood has known all about this for a long, long time.


Pope Innocent VIII: a Jew, a Moslem, a Kabbalist, Hermeticist, Gnostic, and an ally of the outlawed Knights Templar (Image: Wikipedia)

In the other Joseph Farrell book that I mentioned above, “Thrice Great Hermetica,” we get a clue about this on page 134. As far back as the year 1000 A.D., or nearly 100 years before the formation of the Knights Templar, the monk who would come to be known as Pope Sylvester II was making statements to the effect that he hoped that France “would recover the holy places so that a search could be made for the keys to Universal Understanding hidden there.” This future-pope was well known in his day “as the foremost student of esoterica.” He had been educated in a Moorish university in Morocco and thus was well acquainted with what would soon be called the Hermetica and the Kabbalah, two related systems of ideology that were well on their way in his day.

This book by Dr. Farrell lays out a compelling story that shows how “undercover” agents of the Knights Templar, officially disbanded in the year 1307 A.D., re-grouped and were still operating a mighty mercenary navy and a supreme intelligence and banking network by the time Pope Innocent VIII arrived on the papal scene in 1484 A.D. He was the reigning pope at the time Columbus, and his predecessors, the Zeno Brothers, made their many secret voyages to the New World long before the publicly known expedition dated in 1492. It is thought that these maps of the New World, with accurate renditions of Antarctica, had been known within the intel circles for 300 years prior to the known voyage in 1492.

Pope Innocent VIII was born born Giovanni Battista Cybo. On page 161 of the “Hermetica” book, Dr. Farrell writes about this man’s family background:

Giovanni Battista Cybo, Knight Hospitaller, son of a Jew, and nephew of a Moslem, who had clear alchemical and thus Hermetic interests, who was one of two Knight candidates for the papacy in 1484, was also the father of no less than sixteen children, one of whom was Christopher Columbus, whose caravels boldly displayed the red cross on a white background, the emblem of the Templars, on their sails…. This means that the military orders, and their financial allies Genoa and Venice …, were backing a project to reveal the existence of a secret that they had known for some time, and that this was done once they had secured the papacy.

On page 170, Dr. Farrell further sums what we have here:

The voyage of Columbus … thus takes on crucial significance in the huge operational complex that has been unfolding, of the struggle between international papal and ecclesiastical power, and the international financial and “hermetic” order represented by the militant Orders and the Italian city-states and banking centers of Genoa and Venice.

Flipping back to the “Vipers” book, Dr. Farrell equally concluded on page 205:

Consequently, one sees two familiar patterns — the first appearing in ancient times, and continuing into modern times — of a financial elite that is a) actively seeking ancient sources of information, and b) seeking to monopolize and suppress it, lest that knowledge break out of the closed system of finance that made their power, position, and prestige, possible.


Christopher Columbus, the illegitimate son of Pope Innocent VIII, proudly displayed the corporate logo of the Knights Templar even though their organization had been outlawed by the Church.

Hmmm, “financial, Hermetic, and militant orders” … financial elites who monopolize and suppress all avenues of powerful knowledge. Now, just whom does that remind you of only 400 years later in the 20th century? Why, none other than the Nazi Party, their funding Banksters, and whatever name their 21st century oligarchical descendents call themselves. You couldn’t ask for a more complete representation of an uber-powerful force that combined the best of Technocracy, Militarism, and Esoterica. In the year 1929 they became aware of the same thing that the Popes, Christopher Columbus, and all the other post-Knights-Templar mercenaries were well aware of ….

That there’s something under the ice in Antarctica that provides the key of knowledge about the lost human and human-hybrid civilizations that are spoken of by both Biblical and Pagan sources of history.

The next installment will continue the story, but to tide you over until the next story, here is an interesting documentary about the ancient Antarctica maps:

Bee In Eden Show 08 – Antarctica Fact vs. Fiction

Our next episode of the Bee In Eden introduces a series of shows to explore the largely untold story of the 20th century battle to discover the mysteries of our most southern continent, Antarctica. You can click the Play Arrow within this Youtube video to listen to the show as you scroll down this page to view related pictures and a partial transcript.

Part One of this series attempts to lay out some of the wild claims being made on the internet lately and take a peek at whether there are facts to substantiate the claims. This blog is a reprint of what I posted originally on the Rogue Money website on January 02, 2017. The original post can be read by clicking here. Or you can download a PDF copy of the blog here: PDF Antarctica_RogueMoney_Fact_Vs_Fiction . Here is the text of that original blog, copied below.

Once again, the Internet has its panties in a bunch over whatever it is that “they” do not want you to see in Antarctica. From “perfect pyramids” to “ground-radar evidence” of lost cities to “UFO-shaped tunnel ports,” you will not get bored with the endless variety of conspiracy theories and “look at this!” YouTube videos. And as usual, the public is once again being treated to a buffet of half-truths and limited hang-out diversions.

So, what do we know and why should we care?

I’ll answer that second question first. We should care simply because there IS an obfuscation in progress. We should care because many important people from incredibly diverse paths of life have suddenly begun showing up for a visit Down Under. And we should care because that Extraterritorial State of which we seem to speak so often these days, that post-WWII Nazi International, invested a big chunk of their own energy and resources into this land. That history is both well-documented, under-reported, and will be introduced here at RogueMoney in a future blog. There are just too many fascinating surprises from this land to do all of it justice in one sitting.

Let’s start by separating Fact from Fiction.



Fiction: Debunked over a year ago, the greenish photo on the right is really an image from Egypt; not the remains of an ancient polar settlement. (Image source:

That claim published here at the so-called “World News Daily Report” [link] has been fairly well debunked by this hoax alert website at — and it was debunked over a year ago [linked here]. The blueish photo on the left truly is a photo from Antarctica, but it was taken long ago by a Landsat 8 camera, not the new mapping expedition mentioned in the article.



Fiction (Maybe): Antarctic terrain is dotted with dozens of formations that resemble pyramids. Most can be explained by constant freeze-thaw action. (Source:

I’m going to allow a 10% benefit of the doubt on this one. The real problem with the story is that there are cone-shaped and pyramid-shaped mountains all over Antarctica. So I can’t even nail down which photo matches which peak on the map because there are so many of them. Nevertheless, this article at [linked here] does a nice job of explaining how the constant freezing-melting action at the South Pole literally slices sheer slabs of rock from the mountains. In the natural world, it is not uncommon for a cone-shaped or pyramid-shaped peak to be engineered in this way. And far from some internet claims that “this is a perfect pyramid,” you can see that it is most certainly NOT a perfect pyramid. The fourth side is sloped quite differently from the other three which is explained by an uneven erosion pattern on that side. In fact, it should not surprise us to find all kinds of angular formations produced by sliding ice sheets at the Poles. This is a phenomenon called nunataks. Sometimes, plant life can even survive in its cracks.

Nevertheless, it’s obvious that not every pyramid shape in Antarctica has been explored. So, just as the great pyramid in Bosnia was hiding in plain sight for hundreds of years, covered with vegetation, before somebody thought to open its door, I’ll keep my mind open on the possibility that there may indeed be a long-disused, man-made pyramid somewhere down in Antarctica.



“Tunnels as high as the Eiffel Tower,” yes this is true! But a Nazi spaceport? No evidence yet. (Source: DailyMail.UK)

Now we’re getting down to some interesting phenomena. It is in fact TRUE that there ARE underground tunnels carved into the ice in Antarctica. However, their use as some kind of spaceport that nicely accommodates dome-shaped anti-gravitic flying craft has not been proven. Nevertheless, the tunnels are real and their formation is explained in this DailyMail.UK article [linked here]:

The 820-foot tunnels are nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower – which measures just over 987 feet – and more than four times as tall as Tower Bride – which comes in at 213 feet. Researchers concluded that the placement of the tunnels means that they were most likely formed from meltwater – water released from melting ice – that flowing underneath the ice sheet, over land, and into the ocean. The data revealed that water moved beneath the ice in concentrated channels, similar to rivers.

Those are my top three (partly) fictitious claims currently being made about Antarctica. Now let’s talk about what we SHOULD be talking about.

Antarctica Is Loaded with Anomalies

A simple Google search of the words “Antarctica” and “Anomaly” will lead you down many scientific paths. This continent whose size is about twice that of the United States enjoys both “land-based” anomalies and “sea-based” anomalies.



A massive meteor crater likely sits under the ice in the Wilkes Land region. (Source: Wikipedia)

Over ten years ago, gravity measurements by NASA’s GRACE satellites have probably identified a 190-mile wide mass concentration. The researchers have noted that this mass anomaly is centered within a larger ring-like structure visible in radar images of the land surface beneath the Antarctic ice cap. This combination suggested to them that the feature may mark the site of a 300-mile wide impact crater buried beneath the ice. It is more than 2.5 times larger than the 110-mile Chicxulub crater in Mexico’s Yucatan that supposedly killed the dinosaurs. The impact may have even contributed to the rift between Australia and Antarctica millions of years ago.

During Bill Clinton’s presidency, a meteorite rock sample that originated from Mars was found in Antarctica [linked here]. It caused quite a stir as it was hoped that fossil remains of organic life might be detected within the sample. However, the public has been informed that, alas, no such evidence was forthcoming. (Not all of us are convinced.)

FACT: A MAGNETIC ANOMALY HAS BEEN MEASURED AT ONE END OF LAKE VOSTOK. [linked here] includes this statement from a NATO official: “But at the end of Lake Vostok is what’s known as a gigantic ‘mascon’—a mass concentration of metal, very similar to the masscons they discovered on the Moon—a gigantic, circular-shaped, metallic object deep under the ice at the end of Lake Vostok. The National Security Agency took it away from JPL. It’s one of the most sensitive things in the world now, the anomaly at the end of the lake. It’s now classified, top secret.


Lake Vostok is located not far from Wilkes Land and enjoys surprisingly warm water. Where is her heat source? (Image:

Let’s allow this report [linked here] to tell the story of the surprisingly warm waters of Lake Vostok:

Further investigations also detected the existence of geothermal sources which warmed the lake to an astonishing 50 degrees Fahrenheit, with “hot spots” of up to 65 degrees. Given these new discoveries regarding solar radiation and temperature, scientists suggested the possibility that the lake’s encapsulated atmosphere purified itself through a complex interaction with water, and that the chances for vegetable life forms were very good.

Research conducted by Russian scientist Ian Toskovoi – who vanished near the Vostok station in March 2000 – on “geothermal upboiling” also hinted at an alternative means of purification and replenishment for the subterranean lake’s atmosphere.

However, the most intriguing news coming out of Antarctica had to do with the extremely powerful “magnetic anomaly” located in the northern end of the lake’s coast: a discovery which would give rise to a number of conjectures and would be compared with the fictional TMA-1 (Tycho Magnetic Anomaly-1) in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The electronic newspaper Antarctic Sun [see PDF linked here], which soon became the main source of information on the Lake Vostok magnetic anomaly, stated that during the initial flight of the SOAR (Support Office for Aero-physical Research), aimed at conducting magnetic resonance imaging over the area, the magnetometer recorded an increase of 1,000 nanoteslas beyond the 60,000 nanoteslas which characterized the Vostok Station.

But then strange things began happening. Crewmen were being medically evacuated. Some people even died. Replacement crew were told to bring iodine or salt tablets with them. Richard C. Hoagland and Mike Bara posted updates and speculations about the hushed-up news here at the website [linked here]. To this day, that story has never fully been explained.

An Admiral Gets Chased Out of NaziLand

So where does that leave us today at the dawn of the year 2017? We have sudden interest being taken by world leaders and explorers in this largely undiscovered continent. We also have a Bankster priesthood quietly directing the public’s attention down polar rabbit holes and away from the facts that they should be looking at. This will be discussed in a sequel blog to this one.


Admiral Richard E. Byrd pictured here in 1955 (Source: Wikipedia)

One story we should be considering is the eyewitness testimony of the men who undertook missions to Antarctica and gave us their take of whatever is going on. One such man was Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd who led a military — yes a MILITARY — expedition to Antarctica on behalf of the United States in 1947 under a project codenamed Operation HighJump. And wouldn’t you know it, but while so many of us were passing the end of another year two nights ago, another anniversary was being ignored. For it was exactly 70 years ago this week that Admiral Byrd reached his polar destination to carry out Operation HighJump.

The ill-fated operation was abandoned four months ahead of its time. Nobody has ever satisfactorily explained why the Pentagon would choose to launch such a dangerous operation and spend so little time preparing for it. The operation was massive: 4,700 crewman, 13 ships, and 33 aircraft. You can call it a “scientific expedition” if you like. To me, it looked more like an invasion. And the Pentagon was in a hurry, scurrying to take advantage of the first post-WWII Antarctic summer in which to launch it.

So many events that have shaped the nascent American Deep State followed the failed Byrd expedition like falling dominoes. The official establishment of the CIA on July 26, 1947 took place under President Truman’s “National Security Act.” The first official Secretary of the Air Force was sworn in September 1947. And who can forget the still-unexplained crash of a (Nazi?) unidentified flying object in Roswell, New Mexico in July 1947, a craft whose port of departure very likely could have been Chile or Argentina or “New Swabia,” Antarctica.

Did Admiral Byrd warn us that the Nazis had not disappeared quietly into the pages of history, something that a war-worn nation so desperately wanted to believe? Stay tuned for the next installment.

The Mystical Zero

Segment 1 (3 minutes)

Welcome to another episode of the Bee In Eden radio show. My name is SedonaDeb. You can follow along at the SedonaDeb blog with pictures and script of the show, plus extra info related to our topic today.

To introduce today’s topic, I’d like to ask you a trivia question: When did we begin using the Zero? Would it surprise you to know that we’ve only been using the Zero for 700 years? Yes, that’s right. Western civilization and the Babylonian business of finance and credit got along for thousands of years without ever using a Zero in their math.


Our recent radio shows have been painting the history of a financial nexus point around the year 500 B.C. We’ve seen how an elite network of money-lenders acquired the power to set up kings and tear down empires when it suited their interests. In today’s show, we will fast forward to another financial nexus point in history, a period 1200 years after Christ. This is all part of my plan as  your radio host. Future episodes will connect the dots in this 1700-year timeline to pull back the curtain on the Wizards who have been driving the engine of our modern western civilization this whole entire time.

Let’s talk about the quiet mathematical revolution that took place in Europe around the year 1200. This Revolution of Thought enabled Europe to leave the Roman numeral system behind and replace it with the Arabic numerals that we know today, like, 1,2,3 etc. Think about all that becomes possible simply by using a Zero in your mathematics. Do you think we could have iPhones and ATMs without the Zero?

While we take our first break, think about how would you balance your checkbook without using a Zero, hmmm? We’ll be right back.

Segment 2 (13 minutes)

Our story about the mystical Zero swirls around an educated rebel by the name of King Frederick II who was born of the Norman bloodlines and lived during the 13th century, or after the year 1200 AD. Frederick II was King of Sicily, and of Germany’s Holy Roman Empire, and yes, by his own device, King of Jerusalem at a certain point during the Crusades. This means he was a ruler who lived during the days of the Knights Templar. In fact, if you are watching this on Youtube or at my SedonaDeb blog page, you’ll see a picture of a gold coin minted in his Kingdom that incorporated the familiar 4-square Templar Cross right there on the coin.


Frederick II, Holy Roman Emperor. Note the Merovingian Fleur-de-lis symbol in his right hand. It’s all about the bloodlines!

(His coin, pictured below, is a gold “augustale,” similar to a future Bohemian word used for coined money, “thaler.” The “thaler” would eventually metamorphize into the word “dollar.” The significance of the Lion symbol will become evident in future shows.)


Gold “augustale” of Emperor Frederick II, as King of Sicily 1198-1250: Sicilian lion with Latin letters on one side with Templar-style cross and Arab letters on the other. (Photo: Wikipedia)

This king made the acquaintance of a brilliant mathematician by the name of Fibonacci around the year 1225 A.D.

If that word Fibonacci sounds familiar, you may have heard it in the phrase the “Fibonacci spiral.” This is a beautiful, natural mathematical pattern that seems to govern intelligent design in nature. You can observe a spiral growth pattern in objects as distinct from each other as seashells and sunflowers.


Fibonacci’s Golden Spiral

The next time you are out taking a walk, take notice of the way tree branches swing their growth outward from the tree. You will notice that nearly everything grows in spiraling, swirling patterns.


Fibonacci spirals in evidence in the sunflower’s center and yellow petals

Mr. Fibonacci didn’t just discover the spiral and number sequences that bear his name. He also was the author of a guidebook about the popular Hindu-Arabic number system in his hometown of Pisa, Italy in the year 1202. It was that number system that incorporated the Zero.

Fibonacci learned about the Hindu-Arabic number system during the years he spent studying the free-thinking system of calculation that had already become popular among the Muslim Arab merchants who traded along the coast of North Africa. His father was an Italian merchant in his own right who worked as a notary public at a trading post in Algeria.

Son Leonardo became fascinated by the advantages that this new number system presented. He published a guidebook, the Liber Abaci, to demonstrate the new system in Europe. The death of the old Roman numeral system then became assured.


Fibonacci’s book, the Liber Abaci

However, the acceptance of such an abstract concept of Zero, or Nothingness, as a placeholder, did not come easily in Europe. William of Malmesbury protested that the new number was “Dangerous Saracen magic!” He did have a point. Farther down in this post, we will demonstrate that the concept of Zero did in fact originate within the mysteries of Kabbalah and Indian Jainism.


William of Malmesbury (photo: Wikipedia)

Fibonacci lived 200 years before the printing press was invented, so it was not easy to get a copy of his book. However, his radical new system did come to the attention of the rebel-minded King Frederick II. Frederick enjoyed both German and Norman parentage. He was also itching for a fight with the Church.


Pope Gregory IX (photo: Wikipedia)

Describing any new doctrine as “dangerous Saracen magic” was the best Siren call that he could ever hope for. Frederick was already well versed in Arabic culture. In fact, Frederick is well known for promoting quite a radical multicultural way of life in his kingdom. His Constitutions of Melfi introduced ideas still used today for running central governments, establishing state standards in weights and measures, and improving medical education and requiring that doctors take licensing exams.

Already we can see that Frederick II, whose mother was of Norman blood, is well-primed to pursue the Fraternity agenda of which I have written previously (linked here). By the way, Frederick became united with Fibonacci due to the efforts of Frederick’s court astrologer, Michael the Scot. The Zero and its accompanying Arabic number system were a big hit with the Holy Roman Emperor.


Scribes, like Michael Scot, in Frederick’s court. (photo: Wikipedia)

The news of the radical math system began to spread right around the same time that Frederick embarked on the Sixth Crusade, a crusade that would go down in history as one of the greatest acts of defiance against the Papacy of Rome. Frederick, heir to the throne of Jerusalem by marriage, managed to negotiate a treaty for western control of Jerusalem without spilling a single drop of blood and without the Pope’s permission. The Muslim negotiator on the other side, al-Kamil, just loved this guy.


Frederick II and al-Kamil (photo: Wikipedia)

And as a cherry on top, Frederick accomplished all of this while living under an Order of Excommunication by Pope Gregory IX. In fact, Frederick endured no less than four excommunications from the Church during his lifetime. Frederick simply … did … not … care.

Let us return to that warning issued by William of Malmesbury. Was there indeed some kind of inherent danger in this “Saracen magic” of the revolutionary Zero? Where exactly did the Zero come from?

It would seem that we have religious mystics from India to thank for the invention of Zero as a decimal-system placeholder, among others. A Wikipedia article on the origins of Zero tells us that “the earliest text to use a decimal place-value system, including a zero, [is] a Jain text surviving in a medieval Sanskrit translation, which is internally dated to AD 458.”


A Jain temple at Palitana

One of the teachings of Jainism is (non-attachment to possessions), a “voiding,” we might say, of materialism in one’s life. To this last point, this comment from a Facebook user is of note:

In the modern world it is common to see religion and science as always in conflict. Yet in ancient India, one cannot untangle mathematics and mysticism. To the Jaina monks the ideas of spiritual nothingness led to the mathematical zero. Zero denotes nothing. It was derived from the concept of shunya. Shunya means a sort of salvation, – when all our desires are nullified, then we go to nirvana or shunya or total salvation.

This concept of Zero appeared in Jainism as early as 458 A.D. And you’ll never guess what geometric symbol is held sacred in Jainism?
The Swastika.


The Swastika is an ancient sacred symbol. (photo: Wikipedia)

Now it might surprise you to know that the Swastika symbol has been in use long before the Nazi Party vilified it. Evidence of its importance in sacred philosophy spans the globe, from India to North America. Arizona residents have long recognized that the Hopi of the Southwest still revere this symbol. The Hopi claim relationship with the Mayans of Mexico-Guatemala … who, by the way, had also discovered the use of Zero at almost this exact same time in history. (But that is a story for another day.)

From India, the abstract concept of Zero spread to the mathematics of the Muslim Arabs. As we have seen above, Fibonacci came in contact with the system during his schooling in North Africa. There remains, however, another important mystical connection which would tend to indicate that King Frederick was well aware of the power that lies beneath such an abstraction. Zero also finds its way in the primer lessons of the Kabbalah.

Now let’s talk about the role that was played by the Kabbalah and ancient wisdom beliefs in shaping people’s use of the Zero in our math and bookkeeping routines. In a previous show here on the Bee In Eden, I hinted that the Murasu banking family was already aware of this new belief system that would later come to be known as “Kabbalah.” To put it simply, Kabbalah is what resulted when an elite fraternity of apostate Israelites fused their ideas with the mysticism of their adopted homeland, Babylonia.


“Is this not Babylon the Great that I have created?” (photo: Wikipedia)

In a future show, I will share evidence with you that shows that belief systems like the Hermetica and Gnosticism are ideologies that branched off the Kabbalah concepts. All of these ideas influenced the powerful bankers and free-thinkers of Europe. This is really what touched off the whole Renaissance.

We’ll take a quick break here but come right back to learn the connection between ancient mysticism and the Zero that we know so well.

Segment 3 (8 minutes)

But getting back to today’s story … we’re talking about how the modern idea of Zero has only been in use in our Western culture for the last 700 years. It came to Italy via the Muslim merchants of North Africa and Arabia. They, in turn, learned about it from the Hindu Jaina mystics of India.

Now, there have been several prominent schools of mystic thought that have shaped the fabric of our daily lives ever since the first temple was built in Babylonia. The teachers of the Kabbalah were quick to pick up on the idea of Zero from Hinduism. In the Kabbalah, the Zero is associated with the first level in their Tree of Life diagram. Notice this quote from an official Kabbalah web site that identifies the Zero with the very beginning of Creation.


The Kabbalah Sephirot (Tree Of Life). Keter phase of Creation at the top, “beginning.” (photo: Wikipedia)

The web site states:

In his writings, Rav Yehuda Ashlag explains to us that the Light emanating from the Creator designates the desire to create beings and to please them. You might remember that Light is the sensation of the Creator, pleasure. This in Kabbalah we refer to as the Root Phase and is numbered zero (0). In Hebrew, we call it Phase Shoresh and name it Keter. It is given the number 0 because it is considered the preliminary phase to actually creating anything at all.

For further elucidation on the connection between Kabbalah and the revolutionary introduction of Zero into western math, please take note of the following comments by Lisa Jardine, Professor of Renaissance Studies at Queen Mary, University of London (now deceased as of October 2015), during this BBC audio interview. The actual audio is linked from our companion page and is very revealing.

“There’s an element of the mysticism of the East in this. Because, if you have six apples on the table and you allocate the number “6” to that, that is a MARKER for the number of apples on the table. However, if you start looking at an array of numbers, you begin to see PATTERNS in them, if you are of the “patterning” kind. That is to say, you have a slightly more mystical, as it were, Indian mysticism or Kabbalistic mysticism … and then you begin to PLAY GAMES with those markers and realize that THEY HAVE A REALITY IN THEIR OWN RIGHT … That the NUMBER is something you can manipulate and you don’t need objects to manipulate it. And the ZERO emerges at that point. And Indian mathematicians, as it were, at that point discover what we now understand as mathematics.”

“I once asked my Muslim friend, ‘Why did bookkeeping, bills of exchange, and mathematics as we know it come from Islam?'”

Her reply, “Because Mohammed was a merchant.”


“There’s an element of the mysticism of the East in this.” — Professor Lisa Jardine (Photo: Wikipedia)

To summarize, as stated by one of Professor Jardine’s colleagues in that same interview, “Zero unlocks the secrets of the universe.” One way that Zero does this is by becoming the “fulcrum” between Positive and Negative numbers. For the first time in western thought, it becomes possible to conceptualize and quantify “less than nothing.”

Therefore, with Zero, Negative numbers come into existence with as much reality as Positive numbers. There are, of course, intellectual landmines ready to be detonated when those principles make their way into the lives of real people and real nations who are dependent on credit. Nevertheless, we must admit that the introduction of abstractions like Zero would spur the great analytical Renaissance that was just beginning to brew in 1225 A.D.

As a man with strong ties to the Knights-Templar-related Cistercian Order and that “Troyes Fraternity” of central France, King Frederick II would have been on the lookout for all manner of heretical ideas with which to challenge the Church and likewise “unlock the secrets of the universe,” certainly, at least, with respect to the universe of Trade and Finance. In fact, there appears to be quite a latitudinal vein of Gnostic, Kabbalistic, and mystical Muslim thought that extends all across the lands of southern Spain, southern France, and southern Italy during the 13th century. This is that pre-Renaissance period dominated by forward-thinking, albeit heretical, networks such as the Knights Templar and the Cathars, and ruled by Holy Roman emperors whose territory extended from the Baltics down to the Mediterranean Sea.

Therefore, when Fibonacci showed up at Frederick’s door with a clear guide for using the Arabic system in trade and record-keeping, it was a match made in heaven. That “new math” certainly enabled Frederick to speak the Caliphate language when he negotiated a peaceful treaty for Jerusalem that had no backing from the Pope at all.


Thrice-Great Hermes” the acknowledged Father of Hermeticism. Hermetic wisdom was “suddenly re-discovered” just as the Zero was coming into view.

Interestingly, the Muslims were staunchly opposed to usury, often regarded as the charging of ANY interest on a loan. Yet these same Arabs had developed a decimal system that would appear ready-made to create such a weapon of mass financial destruction. Indeed, somebody DID notice that power, the power to “play games” of both Creation and Destruction with those numbers. For that story, we turn to the Medici Family of Florence, 200 years further into the future. (Stay tuned for future blogs!)

For now, just keep in mind that the Zero came to be adopted in our Western culture by men who saw how to use it as a power of Creation and Destruction in our financial lives. Zero would clear the way for the arrival of powerful tools like the ability to compound interest on loans and the eventual creation of the binary number system, the very language of modern computer systems. And once again, it was a system of religious priesthoods that wove the Zero into the very fabric of our reality.

It’s time to return to the beehive until our future escapades into history. We’d like to thank the sponsors of the S.C. network and to the website for music that accompanies our show. Until next time, this is SedonaDeb buzzing back to her blog.

Episode #6 – recorded October 03, 2016

Athena’s Silver Attic

Segment 1 (3 minutes)
Welcome to the next episode of a Bee In Eden. We’ve been connecting the dots through history that show how empires have been built, and then destroyed, by those Puppet Masters who lurk in the shadows of the temple, those priesthoods of credit who have trapped all mankind into subservient obedience to their version of prosperity and natural balance.

Today we will discuss more proof of these money-lending shenanigans during the rise of the Greek Empire. Today’s story picks up and overlaps with our earlier episode about the Judean Murasu family of money-lenders who integrated themselves into Babylonian life about 500 years before Christ. That earlier episode of a Bee In Eden, along with today’s show, can be followed at our show page of the SedonaDeb Blog. If you’re listening to this on YouTube, just follow the link found in the video description.

As we mentioned earlier, the story that was revealed in the clay tablets that were excavated at Nippur, Babylonia drops off after telling us that the Murasu Family realized that they had made powerful enemies of their mortgage clients, the noble landowners of Persia. Those feudal lords basically gave away their land as collateral for loans they obtained from the Murasu Firm. Those loans paid for the weapons and army that were used by their man, Ochus, to unseat the king down at the palace of Shushan, or Susa. Ochus then became crowned as Darius II. But the noble landowners and the new king were saddled with hefty mortgages that pretty much left them forever indebted to the Murasu Firm.

If you were the CEO of the Murasu banking business, what would your next move be? Obviously you need to build protection around yourself. After all, if those landowners were willing to scheme against their king, they certainly wouldn’t hesitate to come after you, their banker, with torches and pitchforks. As usual, these clever banksters turned this challenge into opportunity. Now that they had a taste for the delights of international credit and finance, they set their sights on none other than the Temple of the goddess Athena, way down in Greece. Ironic isn’t it, that the Murasu Firm transferred its affection from the home temple of Inanna to yet another goddess figure in another land, Athena of Greece? Well, perhaps not so strange when you consider that these temples shared a common belief system and were doing business with each other based on lines of credit amongst each other.

We’ll take a quick break here and then we will rummage around the attic of the temple of Athena to see what we learn about the mysteries of empire building and money lending that are still scrawled in the dust on her floor. We’ll be right back.

Segment 2 (11 minutes)

And we’re back. To introduce today’s story about the silver money in Athena’s attic, I’d like to draw your attention to a news item that was published a couple of years ago. I have this linked within the companion blog for today’s show. The website still carries a copy of this discovery by the title: Athenian Wealth: Millions of Silver Coins Stored in Parthenon Attic.


Parthenon ruins today. (Photo:

I’ll read you the first four paragraphs from the article and then we’ll stop to ruminate on the implications of the temple of Athena being used as an actual treasury. Quote:

Millions of silver coins may have been stored in the attic of the Parthenon, one of the most famous structures from the ancient world, a research team says.

The attic of the Parthenon is now destroyed and the coins would have been spent in ancient times. The researchers made the discovery by reconstructing the size of the attic, analyzing ancient records to extrapolate how large the reserves may have been and re-examining archaeological work carried out decades ago.

Their evidence suggests that millions of coins made up the cash reserves of the city-state of Athens and much of this hoard was stored in the attic of the Parthenon. During the fifth century B.C., when the Parthenon was built, Athens was a wealthy city-state whose people erected fantastic buildings and fought a series of devastating wars against their rival Sparta. This vast reserve of coins would have helped fund those endeavors.

….The coin reserves were likely placed there around 434 B.C., when the Parthenon was dedicated to Athena, the patron goddess of Athens.

Did you catch that? “This vast reserve of coins” enabled the city of Athens to engage in a long, devastating war against a rival city-state, Sparta. Hold that thought on the back burner for a minute. Notice also that the coins were placed there once the temple was dedicated to the goddess Athena.

Now notice that the researchers are puzzled over why so much money was stored here. Reading again from this same article:

Ancient records mention nothing about where on the Acropolis the coins were stored, nor do they reveal the purpose of the Parthenon’s attic. “The sources are silent on the use of this space,” said Pope at a presentation recently in Toronto….

However, there are several reasons why researchers believe the attic was used to store most of Athens’ immense coin wealth. 

While the attic is now virtually destroyed, the remains of a staircase that would’ve led up to the attic still survive. This staircase appears to have had a utilitarian rather than a ceremonial use, suggesting it could have been used to bring coins to and from the attic.

Because the Parthenon was located centrally, people would’ve had an easier time securing and accessing the money there. And criminals would be less likely to steal the coins, as the Parthenon was a temple for Athena — meaning any theft from it would be considered a crime against the goddess.

And there you go. “Any theft from it would be considered a crime against the goddess.” My friends, this what the Banksters, back then and today, want you to believe. If you meddle in their affairs, or if you even question their assumed power of Money Creation, you are committing a crime against the goddess. Even though it was the sweat of your brow, YOUR productive efforts, along with the natural abundance of your earthly inheritance, that made it possible for that “money” to exist in the first place. They want you to believe that you have surrendered your productive value to a goddess, that you owe her a debt, and they, as the Bankster Priesthood, have a duty to administer this debt as mediator between you and their god.

I assure you that in an upcoming show of a Bee In Eden we will lay out the specific but twisted belief system they promoted to get your ancestors to believe this.

But there was another reason why the Banksters could not allow anybody to see exactly how much silver was in the temple. They were issuing false receipts whose total was far in excess of what was actually in the treasury for circulation into the general population. This is very similar to how paper dollars backed by nothing circulate in our own monetary system today.

Let’s reason on how we know that this practice of false money issuance was really happening in Athens. Remember the comment made in this article that researchers are puzzled over exactly what the use of this attic was for; the bankers were not very open about their activities. This same article does go on to quote from other sources that indicate that as many as 10,000 “talents”, or large bars, of silver could have been held in this attic.

If you have listened to the previous episodes of this show, a Bee In Eden, I think you can guess what those Temple Banksters were doing by hoarding such colossal sums of silver in the attic. Why, they were doing the same thing they do today: issuing credit lines and circulating fake money that was supposedly backed up by the physical mountain of coins up in Athena’s attic.

In other words, the physical treasury in the attic was storing 10,000 bars of silver, but the banker priesthood was issuing money, or really credit, to the tune of 20,000 or 30,000 or who knows? maybe 100,000 bars of silver. And why not? Nobody was going to come claim the actual coins because after all, “that belonged to the goddess!” Nobody gets to touch whatever belongs to the goddess. Just keep repeating those words, “In Athena We Trust.”

Do we have any proof that the temple banksters were really doing this?

Yes, we do have proof by a simple process of deduction. I refer again to a book that I have quoted often and which is available to you as a free PDF file in our show blog for Episode #1 of this radio show, The Babylonian Woe by David Astle, page 24.

The author mentions the long war fought between Athens and Sparta known as the Peloponnesian Wars. This was a conflict fought in segments over a ten-year time frame. Remember that the news article I just quoted from said that the treasury of the temple of Athena was used to fight that war.

But what that article failed to mention is how much the war cost. From other archives that detail the later expenditures of Alexander the Great in maintaining his own army, we know that the yearly maintenance of an army cost about 6,000 bars of silver. Note: this is 6,000 talents of silver PER YEAR.

Therefore, if the Peloponnesian Wars were fought over ten years, how much did they cost? It must have cost at least 60,000 bars of silver.

Now, friends, here is the key point. Listen carefully. The temple treasury of Athena is thought to have held the equivalent of 6,000 bars of silver. At the very most, it would have held 10,000.

So, if the war cost 60,000 bars of silver — but the treasury only held 10,000 bars — where were the extra 50,000 bars’ worth of money coming from?

My friends, it was coming from thin air, the same way the banksters create it today. They were issuing credit lines and fiat money to the warlords in many multiples of what was actually on hand in the treasury. But since nobody questions the Goddess, the banksters got away with it.

Additional proof is seen on page 26 of that book The Babylonian Woe by the fact that archaeologists have uncovered clay moulds that were used to create coins out of clay that circulated as fiat money, in much the same way that this country issues paper money which was, in the old days, backed by actual gold and silver in the national Treasury.

And that is what the author concludes: “In other words the clay facsimiles functioned in much the same manner as did bank notes over the last three hundred years in the Anglo-Saxon world; they were money, privately created and emitted.”

Folks, we’ll take our next break here. But let that thought sink into your brain. Communities suffered, thousands of soldiers lost their lives, economies were ruined in a long, drawn out war made possible by fake money creation by a handful of Banksters who likely finished the war with the same amount of silver coins that they started with plus a mountain of loan obligations owed to them from powerful kings and their generals.

Segment 3 (10 minutes)

So today we have learned that the wars between Athens and Sparta were financed by ten years’ worth of fake credit that was privately created and privately controlled by that banker priesthood who always seems to prosper after everybody else is dead.

I’d like to connect the dots here to our previous story about that Murasu finance company from Babylonia and this immense profit generated from the money-lending activities under Athena’s nose. Do we have any indication that those Judeo-Babylonian money changers were involved with the financial affairs down in Athens?

Yes, again, deductive reasoning points the way. As our previous episodes showed, the Murasu firm financed the bloody revolt that saw King Darius II come to the throne in Persia. A quick perusal of the Wikipedia article on his reign reveals that he was the man who helped ignite the conflict between Athens and Sparta.

Let me read you this paragraph from Wikipedia and linked within our show blog. Quote:

Darius II gave orders to his satraps in Asia Minor … to send in the overdue tribute of the Greek towns and to begin a war with Athens. To support the war with Athens, the Persian satraps entered into an alliance with Sparta. In 408 BC he sent his son Cyrus to Asia Minor, to carry on the war with greater energy.

And there you have it. King Darius II, who you may recall, was in debt to the Murasu Firm, demanded payment of overdue taxes and tributes from his vassal territory of Athens. To support his demand, the Persian king got Sparta to fight with him against Athens. Thus, once again, the perpetual cycle of debt, taxation, and war comes full circle. The Judeo-Babylonian money-lenders were laughing all the way to the bank as their balance sheets grew.

This credit-line scheme at Athena’s temple worked so well that it got recycled a hundred years later during Alexander the Great’s time. When that great but young conqueror died suddenly, his empire was divided among four generals. Naturally, these generals all had money managers. A man by the name of Philetaerus was the money manager for General Lysymachus. He also became ruler in his own right of the highly influential city-state of Pergamon, a city so revered in modern history that Hitler enjoyed a re-creation of her altar and a display of her artefacts at the Berlin museum.


Bust of Philetaerus, ruler of Pergamon (photo: Wikimedia Commons)

I’d like to mention a fact about his life as detailed in Wikipedia and then show that he was yet another adept in that secretive priesthood of Credit Creators. Quote:

Though nominally under Seleucid control, Philetaerus, especially after the death of Seleucus, had considerable autonomy and was able with the help of his considerable wealth to increase his power and influence beyond Pergamon. There are numerous records of Philetaerus as benefactor to neighboring cities and temples, including the temples at Delphi and Delos. He also contributed troops, money and food to the city of Cyzicus for defense against the invading Gauls. As a result, Philetaerus gained prestige and goodwill for himself and his family.

During his nearly forty year rule, he constructed on the acropolis of Pergamon, the temple of Demeter, and the temple of Athena (Pergamon’s patron deity) ….

Here again we see a man who wields the magic of credit creation paying homage to the patron goddess of his treasury and temple, both Athena and Demeter.

If we refer to the book Babylonian Woe, page 144, we will quickly see the secret of his so-called wealth. This statement demonstrates the this cycle of private credit inflation backed by a much smaller reserve of physical metal was the engine that kept powering the rise and fall of powerful men.


Coin depicting Philetaerus on obverse and goddess Athena on reverse (Wikipedia)

Our author, David Astle, wrote:

Philetairos proceeded to use the treasure to which he had so masterfully established almost total right, with a skill which could only suggest training in the money shops of Babylonia, or Alexandria, or as close advisor, one so trained. The conception of the 9000 talents of treasure in itself being the sole maintaining force behind the extended power of Pergamum, would be quaint to say the least; as quaint indeed as the story of the 6000 talents of silver held in reserve in the Acropolis at Athens as the sole finances with which the Peloponnesian war was fought.

It might safely be said that the money power which enabled Pergamum to secure controlling interest over the cities of Pitane and Cyzicus, was not drawn from what might be left of that store of 9000 talents …. It would have been part of a credit inflation which would have used the 9000 talents … as its base, and more than likely those interests holding the debt of the city of Pitane were themselves indebted by another ledger entry transaction to Pergamum. 

Therefore my friends, this is how the story of the Murasu Family continued through history, beyond what we learned through their clay bookkeeping records, long after they died. We see evidence of men being “trained” in credit and finance up in those same mystery schools of Babylon and carrying their skills down south to Alexandria.

As an extra treat, in our show’s blog page I have posted a link to a history documentary about the city of Persepolis. You might enjoy the story after we all return to our beehives today. I was amused by a data point mentioned at the 16-minute marker of this video. It is another point that the book Babylonian Woe elaborates often, which is, that evidence of the continued influence of Babylonian finance throughout all the western world is seen by the fact that even in the rising power of Greece, the language of commerce and lending was Aramaic, not their native Greek language. Even the Babylonian standards in measuring weight of coins was retained.

In this history video, the multi-cultural empire of Persia kept a rule in their vast assembly hall. To keep the confusion of languages under control, it was required to speak Aramaic during these big conferences, even though this forced the Persians to learn a language that was not their native tongue! I just had to laugh that the city named for the original confusion of languages at the ancient Tower of Babel had now, by the time of the Persian empire, became the standard language of business which united far-flung lands in their trade and commerce.

Well, my fellow buzzing bees, the slant of the sun indicates that it’s time to return to the beehive. Many thanks to our sponsors and to Storytellers Campfire network for providing this stage that lets us unravel this continued history of Money Creation and empire-building. Soon we will talk about the propaganda these temple banksters promoted in the first place to get you to believe that you owe them something that they took from you.

Episode #5 – recorded September 16, 2016

Free Flowing Prosperity

Segment 1 (2.5 minutes)

What is the “balance of nature”? We hear that phrase often. We do sense that there is harmony in our natural world. Certainly we see astonishing and uplifting examples of well-balanced design all around us. When good health and adequate resources are present, all living things go about their day successfully. An environment of peaceful equilibrium appears to be the state upon which Nature thrives.

However, in the world of Bankers and Bookkeepers, the word “equilibrium” has taken on a bit of a twist. In their worldview, equilibrium has come to mean a state where two opposing forces “zero themselves out” at the bottom line of a ledger book. Unfortunately, we seem to be living in world right now where a few hundred Banksters are doing all of the Taking while billions of other people are doing all of the Giving. Sadly, in their formula, that situation defines a type of “balance” and proper order in the world.

This is what today’s show will talk about, a fact about Nature that might change your perception of the phrase “the balance of nature.”

During this quick break, please think about how you would answer this question: Does Nature “zero itself out” at the end of the day? Do living things proceed along some kind of path of Give-And-Take where the “giving” and the “taking” always come out even in the end?

I propose to you that there is something about our natural world that actually teaches us that 1+1 might actually equal 3 or 4 or even some infinite number. Crazy, right? We’ll be right back.


Segment 2 (11 minutes)

Earlier this year I wrote an article at the website to expose the reasons why the Bankster’s concept of the “balance of nature” is out of harmony with our natural world. In fact, it is Anti-Human. Their concept of “balance” was the result of taking some perfectly valid, natural mathematical principles and twisting them into a formula that might sound logical, but actually reflect a very false view of the way Nature works.

The article was entitled Free Flowing Prosperity and is linked here in the companion blog for today’s Bee In Eden radio show. I will use portions of that article as the basis of our conversation today.

There is something about the history of modern accounting principles that eludes most bankers and bookkeepers today. That is, the very system we call “double entry bookkeeping” became standardized in Europe during the Renaissance. Don’t worry if you’re not a math wizard; we won’t go too far in expounding on principles of accounting!

Basically, when you balance your checkbook, you are participating in this scheme of “zeroing out” your checkbook. Your goal is to get the balance in your checkbook to be equal to the balance in your bank statement. Or to put it another way, if you subtract your bank balance from your checkbook balance and have it come out exactly to Zero, then you have “balanced” the scales and can get on with the rest of your day.

The Italian bankers of the 16th century came up with these principles as a result of the re-discovery of a body of ancient hidden wisdom known as the Hermetica. However, there were several schools of thought that were being considered in the mystery schools and centers of higher education at that time. You may have heard of belief systems like the Kabbalah or Gnosticism. Elements of all these systems began influencing the men who held positions of power in western society, the movers and shakers of their time.

However, this discovery of ancient wisdom also revealed some uncomfortable facts. One is that scientific knowledge which goes uncontrolled can result in the destruction of one’s natural world or even the destruction of mankind itself. These bookkeeping principles actually worked to those Bankers’ benefit by aiding them in setting up a social system of debt and finance that would keep humanity somewhat “contained” in a type of safety net. Yes, they viewed this system of debt we live under as a way of keeping us from hurting ourselves!

This is why researchers like Dr. Joseph P. Farrell constantly mention this idea: there is a deep connection between Physics and Finance. Or in our discussion today, I would modify that to say, Energy and Money.

To get straight to the point, I want to explain how, in our natural world, living things literally “plug themselves” into unlimited sources of energy. When they do this, the unlimited energy results in unending abundance. Hence the title of this show: Free Flowing Prosperity.

At this point, I will read some portions of my blog that demonstrate how this process happens in, of all places, a vineyard.

(Follow along at this other article. Look for this image shown below.)


Layering a Mother grapevine to create a new Child grapevine. You literally “plug” the mother grapevine shoot into the earth.

We’ll take our second break here. While we’re away, let that lesson from the vineyard sink in. What we’re saying is that there is no such thing in Nature as “loss” resulting from “withdrawals” of resources. When the Child grapevine tapped into the resources of its Mother grapevine, nobody experienced any loss. In fact BOTH vines became even MORE prosperous. In a very real sense, One Plus One equaled Three, Four or More!


Segment 3 (10 minutes)

To recap, I am saying that, in our beautiful earthly inheritance, there are endless fields of Free Energy. When living things are allowed to plug themselves into those resources, those living things become more prosperous and do not suffer any “sacrifice” or debt or loss of assets in themselves.

The vineyard thus defies the harmful logic of our western Banking system. You see, my friends, we have been taught to believe that if you “take” from one resource, you leave a hole in that resource and you are now “in debt” to that hole and must refill it. So when Bankers lend you money, they tell you that the natural order of your world demands that you “balance those scales” by paying them back. In fact, usually they ask you to overpay them by adding interest to that repayment!

However, in our natural world, that’s not how Life works. There is no such thing as “debt” or “withdrawals” demanding repayment. Our modern system of banking and money-lending is thus proven to be anti-natural and should be abolished. The very concept of “debt” does not even belong in our vocabulary because it does not belong in the vocabulary of any other living thing.


Another diagram that shows the layered vine “plugging” into earth’s energy.

In fact, some forward-thinking people are indeed pondering such ideas. In my article, I mentioned two ideas being proposed. I will quote from my friend Colin McKay who has set out his ideas at website He feels that every person should be allowed to create a type of money, just as our grapevines in the vineyard each produce grapes while yet being connected to each other.

(return to my article.)

Indeed, let’s think about how the original families worked with each other BEFORE any temples and letters of credit had been invented by those pesky agents of the temple. Colin McKay suggests that people bartered their time and skills with one another and simply kept track of doing favors with one another. You see, a society *could* come up with an exchange system like this, where no long-lasting debt is incurred, or people just voluntarily actually HELP one another. Everybody has equal access to earth’s energy resources so there is no burden. Note how, in his system, the social debt is reset weekly, not unlike the 7-year automatic Jubilee of ancient Israel. But this time, the reset happens every 7 DAYS.

It is an intriguing idea. In that article I also refer to a video by Cindy Kay Currier who proposes something called the Heirship Economy. Again, this is a natural monetary system that reflects the natural world of Abundance that exists all around us.

To summarize what this episode of a Bee In Eden wants you to take away is this: if people enjoyed unhindered access to systems of free energy, we would never suffer any scarcity. Human beings could go about their day with what they need to live just as do all other living things on Earth. In fact, if we had access to whatever energy we needed, then there would be no need to have a debt-backed monetary system at all. There would be no need to have Banks at all, not in the sense we have them today.

However, we would still be left with the somewhat valid fear that those students of the ancient mystery schools entertained, which is: Can humans enjoy such unlimited access to endless energy without blowing themselves up?

That is a question that cannot be ignored and perhaps we will pursue that on a future show. One thing for sure that we will discuss on a future show is exactly what false religious idea did those ancient mystery schools promote that got people convinced that they owed debts to those elite temple priesthoods in the first place?

For now, the slant of the sunshine indicates that it’s time for the bees to return to the hive. Take care and proper until next we get to buzz along together.

In our last show, we buzzed through Part One of a historical fiction I wrote a year ago. So today we will pick up Part Two. We are talking about the Murasu family of bankers who lived about 500 years before Christ. They rose to great power during the Persian Empire. The reason why we know about them is because they were kind enough to leave behind massive piles of bookkeeping records. These records were found about 100 years ago. Some very scholarly books on those findings have been published but are hard to find. I have a link to one such book at my SedonaDeb blog page. It is found within Episode #3 of this show, a Bee In Eden.

In part two of our story, Grandfather Herschel is preparing to hand over the family business to his grandson, Asher. Today Asher gets to take a tour of the Babylonian temple of Inanna where the vast treasury of silver coins is being stored in carefully guarded vaults. It is a bustling beehive of commercial activity. Asher is keen to learn the secrets of this temple and the magic behind the issuance of credit lines and the financing of empires.

Let’s take a quick break here and then we will dive into our story.

Segment 2 (10 minutes)

Welcome back. To help us focus on the distant history of the Murasu Family, let’s remember the overall slogan of this Bee In Eden radio show: anticipating our future by remembering our past. As you listen to today’s episode and to our future programs, you will begin to see that events are taking place in our lives right now that were set in motion way back in the land of Babylon, within her bankster temples.

In today’s story, Grandfather Herschel explains a new scheme that literally did come into existence in his day. This was the invention of state-issued silver money. Coins that were stamped with the approval of both the King and the Temple. If you look at coins in your wallet today, you will see that not much has changed. The money-lenders of the ancient world were keen to launch this new system. It opened doors to even greater power over their clients … along with the creation of vast amounts of loans and all the wealth that those loans would generate.

I will read now directly from the story that I wrote a year ago. This is linked from the SedonaDeb blog for today’s show. First, the narrator sets up the story …. (Dear Reader: at this point you can read along by clicking over to this other blog within this website.)

Water Into Wine – Part IV – Murasu Family

My friends in the audience, we will take a quick intermission here and then return to the story. Grandfather Herschel will take his grandson to the most powerful room of all — the closed doors where deals are made, where men are chosen to become the next emperor.

Segment 3 (12 minutes)

And we’re back. We will rejoin Grandfather Herschel and grandson Asher in just a minute. In our story, recall that Grandfather is teaching his grandson about the power of money-lending. In the story, I briefly made mention of the common Trinity metaphor that was taught in the Babylonian temple. In fact, this is a metaphor that was taught in ALL of the temples who passed Letters of Credit amongst themselves. The Trinity Metaphor will be explored in greater detail on future Bee In Eden radio shows.


Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, 1831

But for now, let’s just say that this is related to something taught in social studies today: the Hegelian Dialectic. This is an idea that can be expressed different ways. You might have heard it expressed as this phrase:

Problem –> Reaction –> Solution.
A more common way of expressing that idea is:
“Never let a good crisis go to waste.”

You see, in the days of the Murasu family, the Persian landlords had a crisis on their hands. A young man had seized the throne of his father down in Shushan, a man they wanted to get rid of. Their preferred choice for new king was the illegitimate son of the old king who had recently died. They wanted Ochus to be the king. But the only way to get it done was by raising an army and overthrowing the usurper, Darius I.

Well, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.”

The Murasu bankers saw their chance of a lifetime. The bankers got the noble landlords to mortgage their estates to the Murasu family. The Murasu bankers then financed the military plans of this man named Ochus. He was successful in taking over the thrown of Persia. The landlords were happy, at first. But then they realized that they had given away their land by mortgages to the bankers!

In our story, Grandfather Herschel is hinting to his grandson that he needs to stay one step ahead of his enemies. He needs to start planning to support the next empire and the next king, a king who will protect the bankers from their unhappy mortgaged clients. That king would prove to be the mighty Alexander the Great.


Alexander the Great (by Lysippos)

But now we return to our story as grandfather and grandson finish their morning tour of the Treasury.

(Dear Reader: you can re-join the story here.)

Dear friends, that is the end of the story as I wrote it one year ago. But there is much more to tell. On our next show together, we will talk about how credit and silver money were used to power the next great empire, Greece. Notice that I let something dangle in our story today, a point about how the mystical arts of the temple would become part of young Asher’s financial education. That is something we will discuss further down the road from our beehive.

Many thanks to our sponsors and to our listening audience for buzzing along today. Let’s charge up now at our beehives and prepare for our next venture out. Signing off ….

The Murasu Family Part 1

Segment 1 (4 minutes)

Hello and welcome to the Bee in Eden Radio Show. This show is being broadcast as part of the Storytellers Campfire network. You can find their homepage along with archives of all of their shows at the web site You can also find a link to my homepage blog from their web site. Just look for the show banner with the picture of the Queen Bee, and that’s me!

I am your host, the Queen Bee herself, SedonaDeb, coming to you from my humble beehive in the middle of Arizona. You can find my beehive on the internet by google searching the words “Sedona Deb Blog”. Or go directly to my web address of

I do post a blog for each of the episodes of this show. So you can always return later to the beehive and re-read the script, view the pictures, and hear the show again. Oh and do leave comments! If you have research material that can add to our topic, feel free to share at my blog page.

We spend time on this show connecting the dots between ancient history and today’s current events. I hope you will find my blog to be a valuable research tool.

When we last were buzzing along together, I promised to talk about a story I wrote almost exactly one year ago about a real family who lived during the Persian Empire about 500 years before Christ. So that is the topic of our show today, the Murasu Family who lived along the River Chebar in the city of Nippur, Babylonia during the days of King Nebuchadnezzar.

The story is a product of my own imagination but its premise is drawn from real history and real archaeological discoveries that were made 100 years ago. You might be wondering, What on earth does a family who lived 2500 years ago have to do with my life?

Well, if you are one of the billions of people whose daily routine has to touch money or credit at any point, it has everything to do with your life. Today there are world-shaking events going on right under our noses that are connected to those ancient business dealings as well. It is my feeling that this family and their business transactions mark the point in history when Banking & Finance left the ancient world and entered our modern world. I’ll explain why I say all of that as we get into our show.

Just google search the words “Silk Road” and you will see what I mean. The countries of central Asia, led by China and Russia, are right now embarking on a long term project, often referred to as the One Belt, One Road project, to resurrect the ancient overland trade routes that once connected China to all the major centers of commerce in the Mediterranean region.


Marco Polo c. 1300 A.D. See Wikipedia here.

Something that many people overlook is that the Silk Road of Marco Polo’s time grew out of a trade route that got established around the same time that this Murasu family lived. That road was called the Persian Royal Road. That road became an important vehicle for business at the time that the Persian empire conquered the Assyrian and Babylonian empires.

We’re going to take our first break here. Hold that picture in your mind. Imagine those old Agents of the Temple, those Traveling Merchants who lurk in the shadows of kings. As one old empire was making way for a new empire, those Money Magicians were busy launching new schemes to get rich and expand their power across the world. They did it back in Nebuchadnezzar’s day and they are still doing it now.

We’ll be back in just a couple of minutes.
Segment Two (8 min)

If you’ve ever seen movies about the explorer Marco Polo, you were watching a story about events that happened along the ancient Silk Road trade routes. If you remember, our Bee in Eden show #1 did mention the ancient caravan merchants and the important role they played as Agents of the Babylonian temples who were sent out to distant seaports, empowered by a giant temple-backed credit card, to obtain the vital supplies of gold and silver that they needed back home.

And that is a key point. These powerful Money Magicians had figured out sneaky ways of using math to promote the idea of credit as a substitute for real money. With time, these men used their financial power to build an illusion of wealth in a major city, even though that wealth was really sitting on a shaky foundation of debt. Eventually the debt marker came due. The neighboring creditors got tired of waiting for payment and would just walk in and conquer the city.


Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar. Picture credit here.

That same thing pretty much happened to the ancient Assyrian empire. They had the reputation of being a massively well-equipped military force. But hey, those war chariots and weapons don’t come cheap. Eventually the neighboring people led by Nebuchadnezzar muscled their way into the Assyrian’s business. The smaller nations who were paying protection money to Assyria then came under the influence of the new gang in town, the Babylonians.

One of those “smaller nations” was the Kingdom of Judah. The Bible has much to say about how the good times of King Solomon’s day had deteriorated badly as the people allowed themselves to fall under the spell of of their neighbors’ temples and religious practices. In fact, the more these Judeans abandoned their debt-free covenant with God, the worse the economic conditions in their land became.

And I do refer to the old Jewish covenant as a “debt-free” system of religion.I know there are some in the audience who are already thinking, “Wait, I thought this was a show about money and debt … why are we suddenly talking about religion?”

The answer to that is because, in ancient times, the people’s access to credit and money-lending was THROUGH THE TEMPLES. We laid this out in our first two episodes which I wholeheartedly encourage you to go back and review at the Sedona Deb Blog. (Show 01 linked here).

This is a key point for which I have had much difficulty in finding definitive history books that will come out and definitely make this statement. If you have seen a credible book that does make the statement, please leave a comment for me at this show’s blog page. But from what I can piece together, this is why the common people of Israel, and people of all nations, fell so easily into the sin of idol worship:

Making offerings to idols at particular temples was part of the daily routine of money-lending and credit issuance in ancient times. That is to say, if you needed a credit card, the only place to get it was through the Temples. If you sold your soul, so to speak, to this or that particular idol, then the Temple to whom that idol belonged would reciprocate by giving you the crop seed or whatever you needed to exist.

What I’m saying is that there were a variety of gods and systems of idol worship. People chose some idol with which to ally themselves in much the same way that people choose a bank or a credit card application today.

It is unfortunate that the people of Israel allowed themselves to fall into dependence on those foreign creditors, whoops, I mean idols. They failed to appreciate something very precious about the covenant that Moses had mediated between them and God. The subject of debt slavery is given attention in the strongest possible terms in that covenant. There was a unique provision called the Jubilee (or, Shmita. See Wikipedia here.) It wasn’t just a provision; it was a LAW. This law allowed for a constant cycle of debt forgiveness every 7 years. The people enjoyed complete restoration of their mortgaged land every 50 years.

If Israel had just kept observing the Jubilee law, they would have seen the benefit of living in a nation that never ever would fall under the spell of foreign debt slavery. In fact, they would never suffer long-term internal debt. That freedom would keep them from ever having to get tangled up in the debt schemes of foreign temples.


Temple of Solomon (Picture credit here.

But alas! the people allowed their beautiful Temple of Jerusalem to become just another site of idol worship of foreign gods. The foreign kings imposed heavy taxes. Within their nation, widows and orphans were being defrauded left and right. Lawlessness reigned supreme.

Eventually King Nebuchadnezzar invaded the land of Judah and did a very clever thing. He carried away the king of Judah and the other royal family members whose job was to manage the government of Judea. This left the nation of Judea in a power vacuum that only this king of Babylon could fulfill.

That is where my fictional story about the Murasu family business opens up. We’re going to take a quick break here before we dive into the narrative. But to set the scene, imagine a warm summer desert night. It is near the end of August, just as it is for us today. You are sitting on the rooftop patio of your home in this bustling city of Nippur. The evening stars are just beginning to twinkle as the sun has finished setting. The river toads are croaking in the Chebar Canal. Palm trees are swaying the breeze. You are enjoying a glass of Shirazi wine with some choice dates and cheeses along with our two characters, Grandfather Herschel Murasu and his young adult grandson, Asher, who is eager to learn the family business.

And we’ll be right back.
Segment 3 (12 minutes)

Welcome back. Feel free to sit and imagine your scene on this rooftop patio as a I paraphrase my story. The full story will be linked at today’s show page for the Bee in Edent radio show at my homepage of Sedona Deb Blog. I’d like to give credit to the professor of Oriental Studies upon whose research I created my fictional tale. He is Professor Matthew W. Stolper. His book is :
ENTREPRENEURS AND EMPIRE – The Murasu Archive, the Murasu Firm, and Persian Rule in Babylonia. (PDF linked here.)


Our story begins.
(You can read Part One of this story here within this blog.)

We will pick up Part Two of our Murasu story on the next show.

Many thanks to the audience and the sponsors! Buzzing back to the hive now until our next venture.
