Peace, Death and Ruin
translated by Helga Friedrich/Willem Mondria
PEACE, DEATH AND RUIN or the wrong usage of an ancient symbol
The year 1968 went down in history worldwide as a year of the peace and love movement. In Switzerland, this movement had its beginning with the so-called Globus-riot that started with a demonstration on Saturday, June 29th 1968, in front of the temporary site of the Globus department store in Zurich. The call to attend the demonstration was done by means of a blue leaflet that included criticism of the government. During the night of June 29th to the 30th, youths and police were engaged in street battles the likes of which had not been seen for decades.
A high point of the student and peace movement of the sixties was the 1969 legendary American Woodstock festival, which was attended by about 500000 people, the so-called hippies. The main objective of the participants at this festival was to demonstrate against the norms of society as well as the war which was being fiercely fought in Vietnam at that time. Besides the ideals of peace, freedom and autonomy, drugs also played a large role. The use of drugs was in fact illegal but could not be controlled by the security forces. Taboos and societal rules and statutes were not given any consideration, and many of the participants danced naked through the crowds with the most iridescent colours possible painted on their bodies. Sexuality was likewise not a taboo subject, for the youth culture also rebelled with this subject against societal norms. Another primary concern of the participants in Woodstock was to declare their support for the human being's natural nature. Catchwords like peace, harmony, flower power, rebellion and peace demonstrations went around the world. The so-called flower children spread and proclaimed their peace and free love. The music took on the colour of politics, and was marked by protest singers like Bob Dylan or Joan Baez. But unfortunately history has shown that through demonstrations and festivals for peace, the world could not be changed fundamentally toward the positive and moved forward in its evolution. Our planet has not found peace through these actions and approximately 35 years later many wars as well as murder and terrorism are thriving at proportions that are difficult to assess.
Many heroes of the peace movement were swallowed up by their political careers and by power and money. Names like Jerry Rubin have totally disappeared. At first, Rubin was a radical hippie speaker, then became a regular consumer of vitamin pills and according to press reports died early. The music and culture of the 1968 generation remains unseen and unheard by their grandchildren and it has to a large extent fallen into oblivion with the new generations.
A prominent symbol that accompanied the so-called Peace and Hippy movement was one that should allegedly stand for peace, love and harmony. This symbol has become known worldwide as the PEACE symbol. It was to be seen million-fold in all possible colours on banners, flags, jewellery, clothing, on record jackets, or as tattoos. With the passing of the years and the fading away of the Hippy and Peace movement, the PEACE symbol gradually disappeared as well. In recent times, however, this symbol has been and continues to be taken out of obscurity and is encountered with increased frequency. On the website http://www.hippie.ch , the connection to the hippies is unmistakable. Presently, this symbol is also omnipresent on the faces of anti-war demonstrators. On TV it is also used as a substitute for the 'Viva logo'.
The death symbol-wrongly used as a symbol of peace
Many interpretations and speculations are known to exist about the origin and true meaning of this symbol. Attempts to explain the symbol's origin and meaning reach back as far as to the Satanists' edifice of thoughts, where the symbol for peace is used as the symbol for a crow's foot. The Christians used this symbol for the Greek way of writing Christ - a combination of X (Chi) and P (Rho). Another and rather trite explanation offers a different story of the peace symbol's origin. It alleges that the symbol is the combination of two letters from the military's semaphore sign language, the N (standing for nuclear) and D (for disarmament). According to other sources, the British artist and designer Gerald Holtom had designed this symbol with the circle symbolising the earth in 1958 on commission of anti nuclear war opponents. He had allegedly taken the letters from the Semaphore-alphabet (signaller). These letters are depicted with the help of two signalling flags. For each letter and number there exists a unique position of flags. This signalling method is in use in the navy.
According to reports, the peace symbol was used for the first time on Easter 1958 at a march in the form of a demonstration from London to a company that manufactured atomic weapons in Aldermaston. Large posters with the PEACE sign were carried by the peace activists. In the sixties in the USA, a broad movement for peace was established in opposition to the Vietnam war. Well known proverbial adages have their origin in that movement, for instance "Make love-not war". The PEACE sign became the symbol of the young generation-PEACE NOW! Shortly afterwards, the symbol appeared in the American civil rights movement of the Sixties. Within a short time, it became internationally known. However, against all popular opinion, this symbol is very much older than generally accepted. The truth is, that the symbol has a completely different meaning and that the story of its origin goes many million years into the past. Many million years ago it was called into existence by Nokodemion, and it carries the meaning of death and the existence in death. In 2004, FIGU published a so-called book of symbols ("Symbole der Geisteslehre") in which some of the ancient symbols of Nokodemion are shown.
An interesting fact is that the modern PEACE symbol looks very much like the old symbol for death. However, those who oppose the theory of the symbols' ancient origin only see a pure coincidence in the similarity to the symbol for death, and consider it to be merely a subject for conspiracy theorists.
The rune for death
Another story of the development of the PEACE symbol refers to 8 confusing double meaning in the Anglo-Saxon alphabet of runes. The assumption is that the so-called second yr-rune was used and In various ways trivialized to become the "Nero Cross". (It is only possible to retrieve a real Nero Cross from the storage banks. The cross is the cross for thieves or murders drawn upside down.)
The Nero Cross, respectively the cross for thieves and murders turned upside down.
In this story the development of the peace sign leads back to a historical event that happened approximately 1800 years ago. Therefore, the symbol actual1y couldn't have been developed in the twentieth century.
According to modern chronology, Nero was the emperor and regent of the Roman Empire of Caesar from 54 to 68 AD. However, these dates are found to differ slightly in various chronicles. The philosopher Seneca is supposed to have had a great influence on the Roman emperor Nero during the years 54 to 59 AD. In world historiography Nero is described as being megalomaniacal, unpredictable, pyromaniacal and psychopathic. In the year 59 he is supposed to have, among other things, murdered his mother Agrippina. Nero was the adopted son of the emperor Claudius, and when the emperor died in the year 53 A.D., Nero married his daughter Octavia. After his stepbrother Britannicus was murdered, Nero quarrelled with his tutor, the philosopher Seneca, leading to a rift. Around the year 62 A.D. Nero allegedly murdered his wife Octavia.
During the night of July 18th to 19th 64 AD., a devastating fire broke out in the city of Rome. The fire burned for more than seven days. Historiography speaks of a fire that was used for testing but went out of control due to the wind. According to other records, Tigellinus and other Praetorians were supposed to be the ones who had set the fires following Nero's instructions. It is alleged that the emperor wanted to create space for the Domus Aurea.
The cause of the destructive fire of Rome was generally attributed to Nero's megalomania. Therefore he was assumed to be the one who set the fire. At this time, the first Christians began to be organized and believed the words and reports from Peter and Paul, who as so-called apostles, accompanied Jesus Christ, respectively Jmmanuel, on his travels. Notwithstanding the fact that Jmmanuel had never appointed any apostles to teach and instruct, the original teachings of Jmmanuel had already been falsified by Peter and Paul at this time. The Roman citizens and the ruling class of Rome considered the community of these early Christians already in its early stages to be a dangerous sect. Therefore, their members were persecuted. The persecution of the Christians through the emperor Nero was not a fundamental persecution out of religious grounds. According to historiography, Nero rather tried to ward off the suspicion of him having set the fire. The unpopularity of the early Christian minority came in the nick of time. Many Christians were charged with conspiracy and crucified, sewn into bags and thrown to the dogs, or burned as living torches. According to various church fathers in Rome, the two Christian ringleaders Peter and Paul had been executed. Paul as a Roman citizen had been beheaded by the sword, and Peter nailed to the cross. However, according to statements of the Pleiadian/Plejaren, Nero was not the bloodthirsty and pyromaniacal monster that history apparently ascribes him to have been. On the contrary, he was a' victim of treacherous intrigues and devious attacks. Nero died through his own hand several years later.
Now, one has to know that at the time of the Roman Empire the cross used for executions had a very different form. However, contrary to all theological opinion and teachings, the Roman cross did not have the well-known form as shown in the portrayal of the crucifixion of Jmmanuel. The condemned person was nailed on a cross with crossbeams slanted upwards in a V-formed angle. This form of cross was used in imitation of the ancient symbol of the tree of life. As a symbol of a tree whose branches reach upwards to the sky. The well known present day form of the Christian cross with an angle of 90 degrees was used much later. As a rule, the condemned person was nailed to the cross with the head pointing upwards, and furthermore, the nails were not driven through the palms of the hands but through the forearms' muscles at the wrist. Also Jmmanuel was nailed to the cross in this way.
However, the facts of the matter in the case of the crucifixion of Peter were somewhat different. For very definite reasons he was nailed to the cross in the reverse manner, with his head pointing downwards. Thus, his arms were in a V-formed angle directed to the ground. This is also the form as depicted in the so-called PEACE symbol.
Legend has it that Nero, through the murder and crucifixion of the ringleader Peter, had referred to peace. Calm and order and therefore peace as well would be restored through the death of the Christian sect's leader. In connection with this event the so-called Nero cross is still spoken of today. In regard to this legend, it is one that truthfully cannot be proven any more.
The significance of many old symbols was well known to the Latin citizens of the old Roman Empire. Thus they also knew the significance of the form of the upward positioned crucifixion cross, that it represented the tree of life and that the cross directed downward embodied death. However, the source of their knowledge is no longer clear today. Perhaps the symbol was sketched down over generations, or passed on orally and thus had survived over the centuries. On the other hand it could have been retrieved from the planet's storage banks through unconscious circumstances and actions and then recorded. The fact is, however, that different human beings had known about this connection and the symbol's meaning. And for this reason, they deliberately turned the cross for the execution of Peter into the upside down position. By doing so, they symbolized the tree of life's power flowing back into the ground. Thus the life could not strive upward to the sky but had to flow into the soil, into the earth, where it was abandoned to annihilation.
The symbol is present in two different symbols. Directed upward and in a double V it symbolizes the tree of life with its branches reaching upwards to the sky, I.e. into the lofty heights. Here, it symbolizes the forces' creational striving towards relative perfection and continuous ascent and making progress. Life can unfold itself in the tree of life. The PEACE symbol with the V directed downward carries within itself the value and the meaning of death as well as the existence in death. The so-called PEACE symbol that is used today is a symbol referring in a twofold manner to incorrect use and wrong interpretation of its original meaning. On the one hand the symbol refers to the tree of life's incorrect use and its 180 degree rotation, and on the other hand it refers to the transformation of the symbol of death and the existence of death into the alleged value of peace. The turned-around tree of life does not let the force of life become effective, but lets the force flow into the ground. In that way life's counterpart is changed to become the annihilator of life. This so-called PEACE symbol symbolizes destruction, annihilation and ruin. It does not refer to death in an evolutionary form, which is striving towards the existence in death and thus fulfilling an important part in the life of a human being. On the contrary, this so-called PEACE symbol refers in its wrong usage to a senseless death, to destruction in a de-evolutionary form. It refers, therefore, to a non-evolutionary senselessness and forced finiteness. And therefore, the so-called PEACE symbol cannot be brought in any way into connection with love, peace and harmony, for blood clings to its forms. Blood of human beings like Peter, who had been forced to endure the burden of death by being murdered and was sent to the beyond in this indescribable and inhuman way of crucifixion. The energy is flowing out of the symbol in the direction of the earth. The energy departs from life, and life becomes powerless like a wilting flower or a human body slowly decaying.
All of this means that the human beings of today and the peace movement erroneously identify with an imaginary, incorrect peace symbol and, therefore, in truth court and evoke non-peace and death, disharmony and unkindness as well as war, annihilation, destruction and everything rotten and evil. And truthfully that is because the so-called PEACE symbol used by the human beings is indeed expressing exactly the opposite of peace, harmony and life. Thus in fact it bears senseless death and annihilation.
For many millions of years an ancient symbol for peace exists that likewise is traceable to Nokodemion. Besides embodying the tree of life, this true and very old symbol for peace embodies also a flower, and it is portrayed as follows:
