The Stepped Pyramids And The Babylonian Ziggurats





In Egypt and Babylon where mountains essentially inexist the Holy Mountain was repre-
sented by stepped pyramids or by stepped ziggurats. The shape eventually evolved into
that of smoothed out constructions. But the idea that they represented the stairway to
Paradise was preserved in myth and ritual and, as here, in the symbolic staircases of the
temples. However, the step pyramids everywhere represent the Mountains of Paradise
(Meru or Trikuta) which were indeed stepped due to the terraces built on their slopes for
agricultural purposes.17

Finally, the inner sanctum (or adytum) of the Egyptian temples was, like the one of the
Temple of Jerusalem, the sacred precinct where the dead god of Paradise reposed inside
his ark or coffin, until the time came for him to resurrect back to life. As we said above,
Osiris inside his ark, dead and guarded by the winged figures of Isis and Nephthys literally
correspond to Jahveh inside his ark (tebah) and, likewise, guarded by the two winged Cherubs.

The inner sanctum of the temple represents the Holy Mountain inside which Osiris and his
many aliases (Yama, Kronus, Saturn, Shiva, Jahveh, Christ, and so on) lay entombed,
awaiting for the moment when they are to resurge in the glory of the parousia to bring
back the Golden Age and the Millennium.

By the way, the century old discussion whether the pyramids were tombs or cenotaphs
of vainglorious pharaohs or, yet, initiatic temples or otherwise is utterly foolish. The same
question can be asked of Christian cathedrals and indeed of any of temple or church or
synagogue or lodge or crypt.

They all serve the same ritual purpose and they all commemorate the same event: the
death of Atlantis-Paradise represented by its deity and the hope (or certainty) that it
will resurge back to life with its god and all its saints in the day of the Resurrection of
the Dead. Such is the tenet of Christianism, of Judaism, of Hinduism and, in all probability,
of all religions, including that of ancient Egypt. For, religion is hardly anything else than
the hope of the return of Paradise. And this is proven by the fact that we daily pray to
God to "let Thy Kingdom come". So do the Hindus with their "Om, Mani Padme Hum!". And
so also the other nations, each in their own peculiar way, daily beg for the immediate
coming of the New Era, when Atlantis-Eden and its many dead will resurge from the waters
where it lies buried.
