When We Were Ancient

Zep Tepi… When We Were Ancient —We went beyond all of today’s advanced expressions

by Ron O. Cook

For much of my life, I have studied the secret engineering expertise of the ancients. They had episodes of having access to the highest mathematical computations as evidenced by their artifacts and the striations of their discarded materials. In many cases their tools are never present and are inconsistent with the artifacts.  Many of us take for granted the great accomplishments of these ancient, proficient engineers. Few of us even realize that to have such knowledge and wisdom in such remote long ago times, it is somewhat evident of even higher expertise to find such evidence prior to any happening or end product. We came here with superior knowledge and wisdom not unlike gods.


If anyone would look at the units (bodies) we occupy and to have posited the background necessary to output such fine bodies to occupy here in perfect harmony, then our minds could really approach the level of being properly blown. Readily apparent expertise in ancient times brings to mind Peru’s grand interconnecting stones and sublime artifacts. They look impossible.

Egypt and Mesopotamia’s great artifacts are not far behind in their ridiculous engineering perfection. The abject thinking that is inherent within mythological traditions expressed by all the ancients such as the Vedics and the Jomon cultures, shows glimpses of a background of isolated brilliance that popped up here and there almost as if they were aided by a company of Texas Aggie Engineers flying around the Earth trying to help out where they could — taking their knowledge and wisdom and “their engineering goodies (technology) with them.” But, the knowledge of their genetics seems on par with that of today or even higher than ours, as if they created us. But do we even need to be created in Time/Space or did we do that from an Over-world or otherworld?

The grand “They” had to be highly knowledgeable compared to us and they must have known whereof they existed. They knew the fiery intelligence that inhabited their bodies was much more than just evolving happenstance in human form. The savages they came in contact with or created in experiment must have been genetically placed to fit the environment. Those of us who lost memory of who and what we truly were here on Earth, just did enough to get from one meal to the next out of habit and necessity because we had forgotten what civilization had brought to the table after the run of some great catastrophe or a series of catastrophes that had displaced an earlier Golden Age. The Earth just did not look the same and it did not provide what had been created before. So, we started over.

They were out of sync with nature. Those “Aggies” or the Corps of Engineers did know and had access to tools that just put them out front on any task — they were “we” in engineer’s clothing. They were representative of us as we could be if we applied ourselves to learning and studying and working to become Christ like. No matter what you call this pathway to understanding our predicament as to our existence here in Time/Space, there must be a TRUE pathway or body of wisdom or knowledge that designates the equations necessary for our understanding of Existence. I call it the state of being in Christos — a true state of mind and understanding of our very purpose in existing here in the physicality of Time/Space. The Christos Avenue to BECOMING was known to the ancient architects and they knew of the Tree of Being (the broadcast of our very being not unlike pixels on a computer monitor. They knew how we are manifest here in Time/Space and tried to tell us what we once knew, but due to convention, we were too busy trying to survive rather than put out the effort to attain our former intellectual verve. Christ is indeed who and what we should strive for to be and become here in life. Hero worship of those who strive to be all they can be became something else…Religion. Religion could be equated with Complex Ignorance (See Manley P. Hall’s Conclusion Chapter in Secret Teachings of All Ages.)


Religion is for those who watch what should be done rather than actually live within the very sphere into which we are born. It is what it is. The Godly Que (cursor) to our existence is onboard and within our reach if we only would just follow our own mentality. We are self-aware but not cognizant of our own glory. We are indeed multifaceted beings and capable of high attainment intellectually, but apparently we are lazy and do not strive as those of old. We suffer from amnesia or we just do not try hard enough to regain the intellectual and spiritual level that we are truly and clearly able to do. We sit and look at God all day, rather than take up the mantel of being part of the whole of creation. It sits in the background of our minds and we just let it go so we can go to the mall and buy more junk. In my house there are thousands of books, they tell the story of humanity in every blank space between the lines of just how great we could be. We watch the life, but we do not live the life, which is way beyond anything we practice or see in today’s reality.


I think one thing that gets humans about all the thought going into how the Ancient artifacts appear and the necessary mindset of the ancients has just been ignored by most of us. As a painter and creative type, I know the mindset of creating just about anything…and what I see left behind by the ancients have a content, context and gestalt purpose. They were well educated in order to create such wonders. Gestalt Analysis is highly important in determining just how advanced our ancestors might have been. They seem to have thought on much higher levels. If they had anything to do with our genetic status at present, then we know they were much more advanced than we are today. Frankly, I think they pushed the envelope/s on Godhood. They communicated on linear levels as well as gestalt symbolic levels. We think only on the sexual levels (alphian). It is time we gave credit where credit is due…They knew the Christos means of Becoming or the total travel of the monadic jiva…Soulular Travel in All Space. This means they knew movement in life and death…They knew they were ALWAYS. 

The very fact that you exist is testament to just how advanced we once were on this planet. The ancients are now very obscure to most of us and the fact that their means of existence was highly different from the mess we live in now is perfectly understandable. Our present intellect cannot match their wisdom. We do not communicate as they did and our thought has come down to the base level once again. We are no longer super beings and will most likely not re-awaken in our lifetimes. We think in linear aspects and hardly delve into the symbols aspects that represented “gestalt” and holistic thinking.

Frankly, evidence is everywhere present of our past here in Time/space but few will ever broach the deepness required to think in terms of the Sefirot or Pharaoh means of thinking. The Tree of Existence is indeed the means of projection of this reality not unlike a highly advanced holographic universe in constant dimensional broadcast. Yet, this realm is much more complex and thinking in this category is truly one notch beyond chaos. Thinking on the Fly is something few of us can accomplish with our present untrained mindset.

Pop Culture totally takes most of us away from any approach to deep thinking. It is the noise of this realm that keeps us from finally moving into the Christos State of Becoming. Humanity can do this and meditation is the first step. I wish you good luck in trying to even ascertain the mindset required to evolving into this super thought process. It is not being intelligent but opening your mind to a broader amplification of this reality that actually is speaking to you in deeper symbols. R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz in his TEMPLE OF MAN actually sets up how we can learn to think this way again. It is said, the Pharaohs actually thought this way, as did much of the Egyptian Elite. If we relearned to think this way rather than the flippant child-like jargon that most of us stop at, then we could potentially grow back into the grand mentality that we once possessed in the past — Zep-Tepi.

Reality is perhaps the most unusual aspect of being and becoming within the specifics of existence. After having designed and played many of today’s gaming concepts, the RPG realm seems anticlimactic in the face of ongoing Life. Yet there is a zone that one can enter periodically that takes away all reflection upon existence. It is called dreaming. My dreams are becoming increasingly more impressive and worthy of deep contemplation. There are infinite realms hidden in the folds of undulating dreams. These entry dreamings are the front door of a true existence. I try to evaluate the experience over and over of thoughts hidden in abstract expression of the images and messages passed from my soul to the physical “me” in this realm. It is indeed very powerful. I often think that it might be the true expression of being and becoming rather than the hard base of everyday wakefulness. There have been many times when I have had euphoric experiences via meditation and even prayer that seem dream-like. Perhaps these events represent a sequence once considered the lost art of being here…since I now have the added stints of being elsewhere to form a triangulation. Presence is worthy of much more thought especially when one goes “Turbo” into the Hologestalt modality.

The Holo-gestalt Paradigm of Existence — The Crux of Being and Becoming

This is the theory of the movement or leveraging of mentality held within all perceived elements of physical existence that pervades throughout all the universe/s known and unknown, which means that all is wide-open and readily available to the cursor of mentality (depending on the state of mind). It has been called the “fiery intelligence” which permeates everything. We are manifestly able to partake of this realm of apparent reality but refuse its potential due to the noise of incessant social prattle. It is the mental worth that we should generate that sends us onward to become through each amplified experience. As beings suffer through this world, consciousness increases in worth and power through the sufferance of challenge. Experiencing conditional life is the schooling of the monadic soul.

Hologestalt experiences, in this case, means that there is a holographic-like representation and method to discerning in total the means of projecting a realm into existence via the elements and principles of Deity (The Tree of Life). And gestalt (wholly) references the aspect of the All of mentality, which permeates and materializes all known parts of being here in Time/Space. We are beings occupying forms as a means of motivation in a physical state where we are “self-aware” of our own destiny. We take what we bring to the forum of being to become. Exponential development is the key. We amplify our worth to be worthy and amplified through sufferance or challenge.

A paradigm is a system in which some elementals can function in some order and fashion which gives said system an identity. Such an expression is a reason for Being. Thus a Holo-gestalt Paradigm is used here as a means of discerning self-knowledge (mental self-awareness) of selfhood and its participants in what we discern as Life. This life then can be identified as a holographic means of creating the totality of existence in a realm that knows the information of its parts and can feedback over these parts to the degree that all connected (direct or indirect) participants know the degree of interface for all elementals held in this massively expansive yet minuscule environ that supports being and becoming of mind along with the generation of information to be used in support of existence. It is the Crux (point or cursor) of Being.

  • What is the Crux of Being here in Time/Space???
  • Why Be???
  • What is being other than knowing you are able to think???
  • Why do we seek to protect the thinking-form from destruction after it has thought something?
  • What is thinking but reviewing actions to maintain the vehicle for future leveraging of the elementals of a transcending existence?
  • Why must one be here in (physical existence)?

We seem to examine our being to become more or dive into sloth and just forget becoming something more.


As we become more our vehicle erodes and moves toward what some discern as death. As time passes the vehicle no longer can sustain the means of thinking and we slowly pass into the void.
Others pick up our thoughts and carry forward its parts thereby expressing a continuing physical facade. In experiencing this we are one due to feedback looping of information here in physicality.

But is this physical expression only an illusion? Or, is an illusion a prelude to a future reality? There seems to be a distant thinker in the mix — one that drives our very being from the background or the generative order. It is like a program that determines exactness and procedure for leveraging the elements of this information-packed realm we call living — existence. There seems to be a lot of automatic means (things out of our apparent control) of moving us through this realm of being. The thinking part of us seems to be in for a ride. We ride the light of this existence where everything is automatically moving into newly created data constantly. There is no going back under the same conditions, only forward where change is taking place with new aspects to ponder and partake thereof. Our mind or our thinking part of this experience is in constant flux adjusting to every happenstance seeking ever-expanding worth or worthiness.

Our future depends upon a proper or positive process of determining what aspects to use in the mix of past data for future leveraging of trends and conditions. The Crux of being seems to depend upon something that maintains some form of constancy so that we may maintain the information float in a burgeoning echelon over the chaos potential. If chaos can rise, we are destroyed or move to a higher echelon (level) of existence or thinking in a new environment at a higher speed. It is all information manipulation on our part and that of the system within which we dwell. It is always becoming and ever moving like a wave visiting some potential.


Thoughts are firing into the totality of our mind’s “position cursor” or the mental reference realm — the guide-ware of focused evaluation. Where are the data issuing from or what source? The source is not from our center; it generates from the island of the All, the exterior energy of Light, source that flows into our farther subconscious-state and amplifier. One must admit, we have not previously had access to these sights of transcendence in thoughts, sights, or color. We do not have the sensory capability to cause an awakened knowledge of this experience due to lack of data.

Our mind is emulating the texture of a swirling vortex of multifaceted holo-spirituality, a field full of dimensionally changing stars impacted by mentality. God-like lucidity that once was not provided, but now flows beyond reason — becomes ours! The reference receiver is amplified to see symbolic language of the One, charging in thought – packets that unfold and present impetus toward extended decipherment amplifies our knowing. Each wave maps out new vistas for ever-widening thought at exponential rates. Entities of mind-beings spring forth in creativity to entice us to fall within their range of relationships. Expressing what one sense is beyond our own ability to record leveraged thoughts.

A being might have often thought of virtual life as a great collection of recorded elements that have all the information etched electromagnetically within its dimensional plan. They are a grand collection of multifaceted eternity. Each being is scanning and is scanned within the continuum of vast and unending data and reports back to form new vistas.

The Eye of God (cursor) scans as a marker of Time in this continuum where impetus becomes action. There, all holo-spirited beings are localized according to their worth to the whole. Our minds are tuned to carry the universal cursor as we experience life at the same virtual playing period and speed/space. Is Time the Mind’s Eye — a projection of the One in the All? The Eye focused on the vortex of Being and Becoming? Is His memory issuing through our being? We are certainly One in the absolute totality. This illusion is a great cacophony of localized sensations, seeking the union of a coherent ascension toward the All High! His dreams are our reality!

The Crux of Being involves a multifaceted means of existence. Each part interacts with its other parts. We are parts of the whole that must be present in order to interact and perceive existence. Otherwise we do not exist. Yet, we are one collective and parts of us lose our vehicles but our knowledge interweaves with the knowledge of our other parts. We should love one another as we love ourselves for the other is we — all of us. Not that one is, but that whereby Is, is — that is the Crux of Being and Becoming.

Homo Naledi, Newly Discovered Species

In 2017, geologists demonstrated that this species, Homo naledi, existed in southern Africa between 236,000 and 335,000 years ago–potentially the same time that modern humans first emerged in Africa. This is a puzzle to scientists, who long held that there was only one species in Africa at this late time period – Homo sapiens. How did this species exist alongside others with brains three times its size? The new study suggests that naledi’s behavior may have reflected the shape and structure of the brain more than its size.

The small brains of Homo naledi raise new questions about the evolution of human brain size. Big brains were costly to human ancestors, and some species may have paid the costs with richer diets, hunting and gathering, and longer childhoods. But that scenario doesn’t seem to work well for Homo naledi, which had hands well-suited for toolmaking, long legs, humanlike feet, and teeth suggesting a high-quality diet. According to study coauthor John Hawks, “Naledi’s brain seems like one you might predict for Homo habilis, two million years ago. But habilis didn’t have such a tiny brain–naledi did.”

Homo naledi may have had a pint-sized brain, but that brain packed a big punch. New research by Ralph Holloway and colleagues – that include researchers from the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa – published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences examines the imprints of the brain upon the skulls of this species, called endocasts. The research highlights the humanlike shape of naledi’s tiny brain, surprising scientists who studied the fossils. These findings draw further into question the long-held belief that human evolution was an inevitable march towards bigger, more complex brains.


SWNS_BRAIN_SIZES_01The discovery of Homo naledi by Professor Lee Berger of Wits University and his team at the Rising Star caves in the Cradle of Human Kind in 2013 was one of the largest hominin discoveries ever made and hailed as one of the most significant hominid discoveries of the 21st Century. Berger and Professor John Hawkes who was also part of the original Rising Star team who made the naledi discovery, as well as Professor Heather Garvin from Des Moines University in the US, are associated with the Evolutionary Studies Institute (ESI), based at Wits University.

The researchers pieced together traces of Homo naledi’s brain shape from an extraordinary collection of skull fragments and partial crania, from at least five adult individuals. One of these bore a very clear imprint of the convolutions on the surface of the brain’s left frontal lobe. “This is the skull I’ve been waiting for my whole career,” said lead author Ralph Holloway, of Columbia University.

The anatomy of naledi’s frontal lobe was similar to humans, and very different from great apes. Naledi wasn’t alone. Other members of our genus, from Homo erectus to Homo habilis and the small-brained “hobbits”, Homo floresiensis, also share features of the frontal lobe with living humans. But earlier human relatives, like Australopithecus africanus, had a much more apelike shape in this part of the brain, suggesting that functional changes in this brain region emerged with Homo. “It’s too soon to speculate about language or communication in Homo naledi,” said coauthor Shawn Hurst, “but today human language relies upon this brain region.”

The back of the brain also showed humanlike changes in naledi compared to more primitive hominins like Australopithecus. Human brains are usually asymmetrical, with the left brain displaced forward relative to the right. The team found signs of this asymmetry in one of the most complete naledi skull fragments. They also found hints that the visual area of the brain, in the back of the cortex, was relatively smaller in naledi than in chimpanzees–another humanlike trait.

A humanlike brain organisation might mean that naledi shared some behaviours with humans despite having a much smaller brain size. Lee Berger, a co-author on the paper, suggests that the recognition of naledi’s small but complex brain will also have a significant impact on the study of African archaeology. “Archaeologists have been too quick to assume that complex stone tool industries were made by modern humans. With naledi being found in southern Africa, at the same time and place that the Middle Stone Age industry emerged, maybe we’ve had the story wrong the whole time.”

Largest Dinosaur Ever Left Its Mark On Scottish Isle of Skye, Rare Footprint Discovered

Footprints from the largest dinosaur to have ever existed on Earth have been discovered on Scotland’s Isle of Skye.

The fossilized footprints were left by the 170-million-year-old early sauropods, which grew to at least 49ft long and weighed more than 10 tons. Footprints from the ‘older cousins’ of the Tyrannosaurus rex, the two-meter-tall theropods, were also found in a muddy lagoon on the island.

Because of the scarcity of evidence on the Middle Jurassic period, the findings have been described as “globally important.” Dr Steve Brusatte of Edinburgh University said: “It’s important because it’s a large site for dinosaur tracks, those are pretty hard to find.

“It shows both long-necked and meat-eaters were on the same site at the same time living together, side-by-side,” she said, according to The Telegraph. “It captures a moment in time 170 million years ago when they were just hanging out in a lagoon, living on the beach, back when Scotland was much warmer and dinosaurs were beginning their march to global dominance.

“Their long-necked prints are almost car-tire size, whereas the meat-eater ones are about the size of a basketball,” added Dr Brusatte.

Researchers from the University of Edinburgh, Staffin Museum, and the Chinese Academy of Sciences measured, photographed and analyzed around 50 footprints in a tidal area at Brothers’ Point – Rubha nam Brathairean – a headland on Skye’s Trotternish peninsula. Their findings were published in the Scottish Journal of Geology.

The fossils are thought to be the oldest ever found in Scotland. Another set was found in 2015, but they were slightly later and smaller. The oldest dinosaur fossil discovery in the UK is thought to have been of a 200-million-old Tyrannosaurus Rex relative, the Dracoraptor hanigani, found on a Welsh beach in 2016.

Fossilised remains of giant creature, the oldest known Jurassic dinosaurs and related to the fearsome T Rex were discovered on Lavernock beach by a pair of fossil-hunting brothers.

Dracoraptor is Latin for “dragon robber” – with a red dragon the national symbol of Wales.

The brothers donated the remains to the National Museum Cardiff where it is on display in the main hall.

The gigantic stones of Stonehenge were moved there by GLACIERS, new theory claims

A Welsh scientist has called previous theories surrounding Stonehenge ‘mythology,’ and has made a radical new claim that the stones were moved 500,000 years ago by a glacier.

Brian John believes he has solved the mystery of how massive bluestones moved 140 miles west to the south of England from a quarry in Wales where they are believed to have originated.

A popular theory is that humans carried or dragged the stones 5,000 years ago, but it has never been discovered how Stone Age people achieved such a feat.

A Welsh scientist has called previous theories surrounding Stonehenge ‘mythology’ and has made a radical new claim that the stones were moved from Wales 500,000 years ago by a glacier

According to John, the evidence supports a scenario in which the bluestones were carried to the site by a glacier, 500,000 years ago.

His theory would also answer the question of why the ancient builders of Stonehenge believed the stones to have such a spiritual significance that they were worth the effort to transport.

According to John’s new book The Stonehenge Bluestones, the stones did not have a deep meaning to ancient Britons. Instead, they were just there.

‘Over the past 50 years there has been a drift, in Stonehenge studies, from science toward mythology. This has been driven partly by constant media demands for new and spectacular stories about the monument,’ John told British media this week.

In the book, John argues that a glacier carved its way across Wales thousands of years ago.

He believes the ice picked up bluestones along the way and eventually dropped them on the Salisbury Plain after the ice melted.

In 2015, John helped write a report arguing that what was believed to be evidence of neolithic quarrying of bluestones in Wales was actually an ‘entirely natural’ process.

‘This has been driven partly by constant media demands for new and spectacular stories about the monument, and partly by the archaeological emphasis on impact,’ he said.

The mystery of why Stonehenge was built on the unremarkable chalk plateau of Salisbury Plain may have finally been solved. A scientist claims the bluestones were transported 140 miles by a glacier

‘So we see an obsession with narrative at the expense of evidence, and a host of newly manufactured myths which are even more wacky than the old ones. It’s time for a cool reassessment.’

Stonehenge is made up of two types of stone: the bluestones that make up the smaller ring, as well as the sarsen trilithons are that make up the outer ring of the circle.

Sarsen is a layer of sandstone that formed millions of years ago above the chalk layer on Salisbury Plain.

During the various ice ages, permafrost repeatedly froze and thawed this chalk layer, shattering the sarsen.

Over millennia, these stones sank below the surface, leaving a few fragmented rocks jutting out.

These stones, of varying sizes, can be found across Salisbury Plain and the Marlborough Downs in Wiltshire, as well as in Kent and in smaller quantities in Berkshire, Essex, Oxfordshire, Dorset and Hampshire.

Stonehenge is one of the most prominent prehistoric monuments in Britain.

The monument that can be seen today is the final stage of a project that spanned 1,500 years.

Stonehenge was donated to the nation’s heritage collection in 1918 by owners Cecil and Mary Chubb.

Mr Chubb had bought the then-neglected monument on impulse at an auction three years earlier having been sent there by his wife to bid for a set of dining room chairs.
