Origin of Savior Birth Myths

Teachings from prehistory times once actually taught scientific principles regarding how creative energies manifest as matter and life.  These ancient lessons were, as noted numerous times in these postings, conducted using the panoramic stellar universe itself to illustrate the lessons, and this practice was the origin of identifying select groups of stars (constellations) with names which suggested some imaginary figure that was outlined with those stars.

Even into Roman Empire times there were those among the aristocrats and literati who still had access to fragments of those teachings which were regarded as ancient even then.  Virgil, the Roman poet (70-19 BCE), for example, knew of those ancient teachings, and his mysterious work Cumacan Prophecy, or pastoral poems completed in 27 BCE, drew upon that knowledge.  For example, a line within this literary work has puzzled scholars for generations, and some imaginative Christians have even suggested that it foretold the birth of Jesus.  The line from Virgil’s Fourth Eclogue of the Cumacuan Prophecy reads: “Now a new race descends from the celestial realm…” Other inventive scholars today have even dared to suggest that it indicates that unethical extraterrestrials had once imposed physical and mental alterations upon a young unwary Jewish female.  Virgil’s famous Eclogue did indeed happen to celebrate the birth of a child who was destined to usher in a new golden age.   But that portrayal was inspired from the four ancient lessons that were once given with constellation Cancer, and those lessons taught how creative energies involve as energy substance, which was defined as astral matter which was explained as being the second of four energy dimensions that involve and form as physical forms.

The ancient star lessons taught a scientific explanation of energies amassing in a developmental process which involves/evolves as Creation.  Out of these self-generating energies (out of the quantum or virginal void) there is created the energy identities which progressively assumes matter forms.  Thus Virgil’s referential line states that such an identity “..descends from the celestial realm.”  It is at this point of energy development which is amassing as a matter form that the responsibility for refinement of these creative energies is taken up by each matter form.  The evolutionary potential is within each energy form and it is this ancient star lore which contributed to the rise of all “savior” birth tales of various faith systems, such as Mithras, Tammuz, Attis, Thules, Odin, Hesus, Krishna, Indra, Jesus, and others.

Other story features that always accompany the savior birth stories of those various faith systems were also presented in Virgil’s Eclogues, for they all portray a “divine” being entering or passing over into the matter plane from the same primordial conditions which had once been taught with the Cancer constellation lessons. Astronomical (celestial) lore was always a passion of shepherds for the simple reason that they spent so many long nights beneath the celestial canopy. Thus it is valid that shepherds always served as the heralding elements in the many myths that tell of guiding stars, angels and savior births.  The features in all these various savior birth myths were therefore constructed on pastoral conventions, and because of this the myths focused on shepherds, their good-natured banter, love songs, dirges, and singing matches. 

One of the galactic clusters within the Cancer grouping of stars which were known to the ancients is today listed in astronomy texts by the name Praesepe. from the Latin word  prae, meaning “before” and sepire, meaning “to fence” (fence in).  This came to be mistranslated into “Manger.”  Well, you can see where this leads.  But there are two nearby stars associated with the manger which are often used to mark the “eye” of the Crab symbol of Cancer.  Among old-time astronomy buffs these two stars became known as the Ascelli Asses.  In prehistory lessons they symbolized the lower energy involvement upon which self-aware consciousness is carried –or passes over–into this limited energy dimension of matter.  Is it coincidence then that Jesus just happened to ride into Jerusalem upon a gentle donkey?

Obviously the Pagans were not exactly the dunces that corporate-styled faith systems have always insinuated.  No, those Pagans who are routinely looked down upon were not Jews or Christians or Muslims.  But glowing patterns of stars carried traditions long before those by-the-book faith systems were contrived.  Pagans were exceptionally spiritual and recognized that the spirit of Creation was active not only within themselves but within every defined thing in the visible world.  They, not us, had the benefit of the unknown sages who had once taught our ancestors with use of the universe as their blackboard. And drawing upon the twelve major constellations and their neighboring constellations as illustration the entire spectrum of Creation and life’s higher potential had been more scientifically explained than any of the corporate styled faith system in vogue today.
