The New Golden Age

Readers of this Blog will by now have realised that the central message of my book The Last Days of Tolemac, is that we are currently living through the death throes of the present world age, and that the new age that is dawning will exceed everything we can imagine.

In the penultimate chapter of the last book of the Bible, the book of Revelation, we find the following words:

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” (Revelation 21:4)

However, the transition from our existing world age to the new one that is coming, will be accompanied by world-wide calamities brought on by a close encounter with a comet, that will totally transform the surface of the earth. As St John goes on to explain:

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away.” (Revelation 21:1)

The world that we know today with its continents and countries will be completely changed. Many landmasses that are presently above the sea will sink below the waves, while new lands will arise where previously there was only ocean. The earth will appear to have been made new.

And because this close encounter with a comet will cause a change in the axis of the earth, the stars that previously inhabited the night sky will now be seen in different parts of the heavens. To those who will inherit this new earth, it will appear as if the stars themselves have moved. The old heaven will have passed away.

Now the idea of the earth undergoing cataclysmic changes leading to successive world ages is not new. In fact it is as old as time itself, and stories of similar past events can be found in the sacred writings of all the ancient cultures of the world.

When Immanuel Velikovsky was researching the global legends of mankind in the course of developing his revolutionary cosmological ideas that led up to the publication of his book Worlds in Collision, he was struck by the fact that so many societies retained in legend, dim memories of cataclysmic changes which had destroyed entire societies and changed the face of the earth.

Velikovsky found that these legends were common to many societies which otherwise were remote in time and geography from one another. According to these legends, the planet appeared to have enjoyed periods of physical stability interrupted by recurring cataclysms of overwhelming ferocity.

In many cases which Velikovsky documented, the earth appeared to have been shaken in its course, altering not only its polar alignment, but also its orbit around the sun. According to these legends, the history of the earth was reckoned by successive ages.

Each age was a period of relative stability between cataclysms, and was in turn characterized by a particular “sun”, which represented the path traversed by the sun through the heavens during that particular age.

Among the peoples of Meso-America, persistent traditions of cosmic catastrophes can be found among the Incas, the Aztecs and the Maya. The Maya referred to these past ages by the names of their “suns”, such as Water Sun, Earthquake Sun, Hurricane Sun and Fire Sun. They substituted the word “sun” for ”world age” in order to define a time characterised by a specific orbit of the earth around the Sun.

As H. B. Alexander wrote in his epic Latin American Mythology published in 1920:

The Water Sun (or Sun of Waters) was the first age, terminated by a deluge in which almost all creatures perished; the Earthquake Sun or age perished in a terrific earthquake when the earth broke in many places and mountains fell. The world age of the Hurricane Sun came to its destruction in a cosmic hurricane. The Fire Sun was the world age that went down in a rain of fire.”

The idea that the earth has undergone a succession of catastrophic upheavals associated with cosmic encounters did not originate with the Maya. Legends, myths and stories of these devastating events can also be found throughout the ancient world. They tell of times when dwellings were destroyed and the earth was convulsed by natural disasters which had their source in space.

While these stories vary in the number of ages that have come and gone, they all agree that there have been at periodic intervals, various disasters that have assailed the earth causing widespread destruction. The agents of this destruction have been earthquake, fire, wind and flood.

The Chinese called these vanished ages Kis, and recorded that ten ages had passed from the beginning of the world up to the time of Confucius. The ancient Chinese encyclopedia Sing-li-ta-tsiuen-chou described these past eras in the following words: “In a general convulsion of nature, the sea is carried out of its bed, mountains spring out of the ground, rivers change their course, human beings and everything are ruined, and the ancient traces effaced.”

The sacred Hindu book Bhagavata Purana called these past ages Kalpas or Yugas, and referred to four previous ages that had terminated through different catastrophes. The Buddhist scripture Visuddhi-Magga, written about 430 BC, contains a chapter on “World Cycles” declaring that: “There are three destructions: the destruction by water, the destruction by fire, the destruction by wind”. Each of these ages is separated from its previous one by a world catastrophe.

Similar references can be found in the Zend-Avesta, the sacred book of the Persians. The Pahlavi Texts quote the prophet Zarathustra referring to “the signs, wonders, and perplexity which are manifested in the world at the end of each millennium.” One of the books of the Avesta, the Bahman Yast, numbers seven world ages or millennia that have preceded the present age.

The Greek philosophers Anaximenes and Anaximander both referred to past world ages in their writings, as did Diogenes of Apollonia in the fifth century BC. Heraclitus (540-475 BC) taught that the world was destroyed by fire at regular intervals, while Aristarchus of Samos claimed that in every period of 2,484 years, the earth underwent various destructions, some by flood and some by fire.

In his work Theogony, the Greek poet Hesiod described the end of one of these ages:
The life-giving earth crashed around in burning . . . all the land seethed, and the Ocean’s streams . . . it seemed even as if earth and wide Heaven above came together; for such a mighty crash would have arisen if Earth were being hurled to ruin, and Heaven from on high were hurling her down.”

Another famous Greek by the name of Herodotus (484-425 BC), who has been called the “Father of History” because he was the first Greek historian to collect his materials systematically, test their accuracy, and then reduce them to a written narrative, had an opportunity to visit Egypt. In his Second Book of History, Herodotus referred to his own meeting with various Egyptian priests, and recorded his conversation with them. As he wrote:

The priests asserted that within historical ages and since Egypt became a kingdom, four times in this period (so they told me) the sun rose contrary to his wont; twice he rose where he now sets, and twice he set where he now rises.”

The Greek philosopher Plato recorded in his essay Timaeus, that the renowned Athenian statesman Solon (638-558 BC) also undertook a visit to ancient Egypt. While he was there he was confronted by an elderly priest who told him:

Oh Solon, Solon, you Greeks are all children, and there is no such thing as an old Greek. You are all young in mind. You have no belief rooted in old tradition and no knowledge hoary with age. And the reason is this.”

“There have been and will be many different calamities to destroy mankind, the greatest of them by fire and water, lesser ones by countless other means. Your own story of how Phaeton, child of the sun, harnessed his father’s chariot, but was unable to guide it along his father’s course and so burnt up things on earth and was himself destroyed by a thunderbolt, is a mythical version of the truth that there is at long intervals a variation in the course of the heavenly bodies and a consequent widespread destruction by fire of things on the earth.”

Jesus predicted that there would come a future time on earth when nations would rise up against other nations, as well as kingdom against kingdom. These wars would be compounded by other troubles such as famines, pestilences and earthquakes in different parts of the world.  (Matthew 24:7)

This affliction and tribulation throughout the earth would culminate in a cataclysmic event that would bring an end to the current cycle of civilisation. In his book of Revelation, St John described the disasters that would herald this event.

The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of the trees was burnt up, and all the green grass was burnt up.

“And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; and the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

“And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; and the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters because they were made bitter.

“And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and a third of the day shone not, and the night likewise.”  (Revelation 8: 7-12)

And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth;  and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.”  (Revelation 9:1-2)

At the time these words were written, these enigmatic predictions by the favoured disciple of Jesus could have held little meaning for those living in past centuries. Today however, their meaning stands revealed as the clear imprint of a heavenly harbinger of doom. The tribulations predicted by John are a vivid illustration of just those disasters that would befall the earth if it were to have a close encounter with a large comet.

Suppose a large comet was to pass in orbit around the sun. As it sped away on its outward path heading back into the dark void of space, its luminous tail of particles would travel ahead of it, blown by the force of solar radiation. If the earth should happen to lie in the path of this comet after its perihelion, or closest approach to the sun, it would first come in contact with this extended tail.

If the dust particles in the comet’s tail were ferruginous (containing iron), the earth would be showered by particles of fine, red dust. The presence of these fine particles in the atmosphere would then spawn torrential downpours of rain, which would be characterized by a rusty-red colour.

As the earth continued to be showered by poisonous dust, this rusty rain would soon contaminate the rivers and the seas, causing them to become blood-red in appearance. Those who drank from these toxic waters would die.

As the nucleus of the comet drew closer to the earth, larger particles in the comet’s tail would fall as blazing meteorites. This torment of fiery hail would set fire to large portions of the land. Should a part of the comet, or even the nucleus itself, plunge into the sea, this flaming asteroid would create appalling havoc, not just to those creatures within the sea, but also to those craft which happened to be travelling upon it.

Coastal cities all around the globe would be ravaged by tumultuous tidal waves. Hundreds of millions of people would die in a matter of minutes.

The resulting collision would devastate the land and decimate all forms of life on the planet. A cloud of dust and debris would soon circle the earth, blotting out the light of the sun, moon and stars. The impact of this asteroid would severely jolt the earth, causing it to tilt on its axis and change the alignment of its poles.

Such a scenario may seem farfetched in terms of astronomical probabilities. Yet it is entirely possible that a long-period comet, hitherto unknown to science, could at any time sweep into the solar skies. Now if such a catastrophe were to afflict the earth, the existing topography of the land would undoubtedly be dramatically changed by the fury of water, wind and flame.

The earth would appear to have been made new, with the old earth having been transformed. And if the poles themselves were tilted into a new alignment, the sun would appear to traverse a new path through the constellations. The heavens themselves would appear to have been changed. A new age would then begin on earth, just as had occurred many times before in our half-forgotten past.

But whereas in ages past, those few who managed somehow to survive these disasters would have been forced to start anew amid the wreckage of a devastated planet, by reverting to living in caves and assuming a hunter-gatherer existence, the prophets of old have assured us that this time will be different.

For according to all the ancient prophecies, as well as the recorded words of sages and the founders of all the major religions of the world, this coming age will be a golden age of wonder that will dwarf even the greatest achievements of past civilizations.

It will be an age of peace, freedom and justice, as well as an age of scientific accomplishment that will beggar the mind. It will not only be an age free of all pain and suffering, but of spiritual insight and understanding where all beings will live in harmony with one another.

When asked what this new golden age of wonder would be like, this is how the Oracle of Tolemac responded:

The new age that is about to unfold on earth will be beautiful beyond telling. But it will not just be an age of harmony and beauty on the earth.

It will be an age when men and women will come to know their true calling. They will not only be custodians of the earth, but of all intelligent life that exists on it as well.

There is life and intelligence in all forms, as ancient man knew. Man is not the only thinking being living on the earth. All forms, including elements and minerals, have inherent intelligence. Man is their keeper and their elder brother.

Not only will humanity be affected by the changing energies of the new age, but also the trees, plant life, animals and birds. The oceans too have a life that is evolving, and in the very elements of earth there lies a kingdom that is evolving towards harmony and perfection.

Even within your mountains there are nature spirits that evolve with you. When the vibrations of the new age become established, these spirits will become visible to you.

Most of the animals that now live on earth are not suited to the higher vibrations of the new age. They will be allowed to reincarnate on other spheres more suited to their growth and evolution.

You will never again see the great herds of animals that wander on the plains of your planet today. That era of your evolution will have passed.

The animals that will inhabit earth in the new age will be different from the animals that you know now. They will have a higher degree of consciousness and will have more highly developed telepathic powers. Many will be completely new species, and your scientists will wonder how they came to evolve from previous species on the earth.

These animals will not prey on other animals as they did in the Piscean age. They will lose their predatory instincts and become vegetarian and plant eaters. Your Bible has also spoken of a time when the calf and the lion will lie down together.

The reptile kingdom will not disappear completely, as many species have developed a level of consciousness that can survive the new vibrations. The same will be true of fishes, while many new bird forms of great beauty will appear.

The insect life that has proved so troublesome to modern man will not survive, for they are of a lower consciousness. In all cases, the determining factor over which species will survive and which perish, will be their evolutionary level of consciousness.

When only love is manifested on your planet all things caused by negation will pass away and the earth will once again become a place of surpassing beauty. Nature will no longer need to defend itself against the harsh thoughts of mankind. The cactus and the rose will lose their thorns.

Your weather will change completely. When peace reigns in the hearts of men and women, the earth too will reflect this harmony. Gentle showers of rain will fall only as needed. The wild storms of the past will not trouble you again.

Because there is life and intelligence in every element, man will learn how to create tools and machinery with inherent intelligence. Machines will be created with the power to repair themselves.

Your medicine will also be transformed. Your physicians will use colour and light to heal their patients. There will also be specialized equipment that will allow them to repair damaged organs. They will even be able in specialized conditions to heal broken bones instantly and grow new human limbs.

Your cities will be completely changed. No longer will they be built in haphazard fashion as before. New cities will be built in harmony with the energy centers of the planet to take advantage of places where the lines of force flow through the planet.

When your cities are properly aligned, you will be able to draw on natural forces of energy to provide light and power. Because this source of energy will be free for all to use, every person will be able to light and heat their homes as they wish.

Knowledge and wisdom will make great advances in the coming age. The true history of your planet will be revealed at last. Those same disasters that once caused your earlier libraries and treasures to be hidden will now cause them to be revealed. The lost records of Atlantis and Lemuria will be rediscovered.

Those who survive to inherit the new world that is about to flourish on the earth will come to know a life that is beyond the imagination of modern man. But first they will need to prove that they are worthy.

They will have to survive the Great Initiation spoken of in your Holy Books.”
