Queen of Bonk

Benson C Saili
THIS EARTH, MY BROTHER…

Much of the language we speak today on Earth originate not from here but from the stars, in particular the Orion and Sirius star systems. We too originate from there, at least partly, as we shall set down in detail at an appropriate time.

On the SSS World, the throne planet of Orion, the language they spoke had certain suffixial terms (word endings) which I wish to draw attention to if we are to understand the significance of the manifold titles of the Orion Queen, who was the overall monarch as being a predominantly matriarchal society, the Orion empire is not headed by a King.  I will dwell on only five.

The suffix UR meant “the first and foremost” or “the original”.      The suffix US meant “one who is of or belongs to …”    The suffix U meant “those who are of …”      The suffix I meant “one who is at the side of …”      Finally, the suffix IM meant “those who are at the side of …”

It is curious that the Illuminati of our day use the same suffixes in their coded language but in a subtle way so that we don’t get the picture. The best example is the acronym USA. This is United States of America in full. But that is simply the surface connotation. The underlying meaning is something else.   

The official version of how the name America came about is that it was in honour of the pioneering Italian explorer Amerigo Vespucci (1454-1512). However, researchers have now debunked this claim. It has been found that Vespucci actually changed his first name from Alberigo, his original name, to Amerigo after his return from the Americas (North and South America). In other words, the continents were already known by the name America long before he turned up there. In any case, if the two continents were to be named after him, they would have been called Vespucca, after his surname. Landmarks are named after a legend’s surname (or both names in some cases) and not his first name.  One example is America’s political capital, which is known as Washington and not George.

In their 1997 book, The Hiram Key, Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas aver that America is derived from the term “Merika”. Merika, the two authors allege, was the name given by the Mandeans  (the first century religious grouping  that emerged from the apostolate of John the Baptist) to a prospective paradise to the far west of the globe.   This paradise was marked by the evening star, the planet Venus, which Mandeans called Merika.   However, the two authors did not explicitly cite a source for such a notion. Even today when they are pressed to do so, they are evasive if nor bluntly dismissive. Authors who quote The Hiram Key attribute the idea of the US being Merika to Flavius Josephus but in none of his writing does Josephus employ the term “Merika” anywhere. In any case, Jorunn Jacobsen Buckley, in his 2002 book titled The Mandeans, demonstrate that the Mandeans believed that their paradise was to be found at the North Pole and not in the West.  Having said that,  where then did the name America stem  from?

Well, one has to scour not modern history to find the answer but ancient history etched on clay tablets. America was named after Ningishzidda – Enki’s genius son who was also known as Thoth – who was the first Anunnaki to colonise the Americas along with his dark-skinned African aides  known as the Olmecs. The Mayans of Central America, where he was headquartered,  referred to Ningishizidda as the god Quetzalcoatl, meaning “The Winged/Feathered  Serpent” (“Serpent” because he was of Orion origin and “Winged” because he flew in  an aircraft). The Peruvians, however, called him Amaruca. Amaruca derived from the ancient compound word  OME-ORI-EKE, which meant “Divine Creator Spirit”, or simply God. It was Amaruca which through a linguistic twist and the evolution simply of words became America.

This then cracks the code for the acronym USA. When the founding fathers (all Freemasons) assigned such a name to the country, what they were declaring to the Masonic  fraternity was that they were dedicating the country to the Anunnaki gods. They were saying,  “We belong to Amaruca’s race” (US = belongs to as we have stated above and A = Amaruca), or even more importantly that,  “We are Reptilians”.   It all makes sense really  since the motto of America is “In God We Trust”. Which God? Not the First Source, the real creator, but impostor Reptilian gods! It all harps back to the Orion Queen folks.

THE ORION QUEEN’S VERY FAMILIAR TITLES

Sovereigns go by various titles, most of which tributary.  There’s no single monarch who goes by only one title. By the same token, the Orion Queen had a slew of titles, some of which have carried over into the languages we speak here on Earth.  

On the SSS World, motherhood was denominated by the term MA. Every mother was a MA. Since the Queen was a mother, she too was a MA. She was actually called “THE MA”. But she was not only a mother: she was the mother of the global nation.  She was therefore addressed as Her Majesty Queen  MA-MA. As we have pointed out before, doubling a name or title indicated seniority. The Queen was the Big Mama, the global Mummy.  

The Queen was the First Citizen of the Orion Empire. As such, she was called THE MA-UR, meaning “First Lady”. Abbreviated, this became THE GREAT MAR. But because of the tendency on the SSS World to double titles of eminent personages, the Queen was called Her Majesty Queen  MAR-MAR.

Now, in the Orion Empire, that is the SSS World plus other planets and star systems it had colonised in the 9th  Sector of the Milky Way Galaxy – arguably the most powerful realm in the galaxy – the Orion Queen was recognised as  the Queen of the Galactic Waters. The other name for Galactic Waters is the Ocean of the Khaa. Both these terms simply mean “cosmic space”.  Since the Orion Queen was the Queen of the galactic space, the galactic space also went by the name THE GREAT MAR. This is the true origin of the Latin word Mar, which means “ocean” and from which we get such ocean-related terms as “marine” and “maritime”.   

In an earlier article, we called attention to the fact that the females of the KHEB race (as the people of the SSS World called themselves) were on other worlds known simply as TT because of an aspect of their speech patterns. Their Queen, being foremost of women in the empire, was therefore referred to as Queen MA-TT, or Queen MA-TT-UR. MA-TT-UR is the true origin of our English word “mother”. As we all know, mother does not only refer to the most important woman in a nuclear family unit; it also refers to a matriarch such as “Mother Superior” in the Catholic orders for instance. All female-centred terms such as maternal, matriarch, matron, maternity, matricide, etc, stem from MA-TT or MA-TT-UR.     

The same Queen of Orion was in other worlds also called Her Majesty Queen TT-TT, or Queen TTI-TTI (the true source of the English word “tit”). This was meant to emphasise the fact that she was the leading  KHEB female. On the Earth of old, TTI-TTI was also pronounced as TTA-TTA – Ntate in Setswana/dad in English. In most Bantu languages, Tata or something like that is the way a father, grandfather, or a respected senior citizen is addressed.     This is just one example of a term which originally meant one thing but was  with time turned around to mean the direct opposite. Ntate was the Queen of Orion folks, not the King of Orion. I will be giving more examples of such words with reversed contemporary meanings as we go along.  

The female population of the SSS World as we have already learnt were   known in full as SSS-TT. A title of the Queen that derived from this term had to be doubled as per custom, so that she was called Queen SSSTT-SSSTT, or simply SST-SST when shortened. This was also pronounced as AST-AST. Throughout the Orion Empire, the Queen therefore became famously known as Queen AST-AST, with her throne referred to as the AST and the entire Orion Empire as the AST Empire.  It  is easy to understand then why the most famous Queen/Goddess of  Egypt, Isis (her Greek name which was a shortened form of SSS-SSS) was known as Ast.  It was clearly in honour of  the Orion Queen, from which her lineage directly descended.

The people of Orion  as mentioned above  were known on other worlds as the SSS people (by virtue of repeated hiss sounds  in their speech), indeed the reason the throne planet was called the SSS World. To denote that the Queen was the SSS sovereign, the people of the conquered worlds referred to her as Her Majesty Queen SSS-SSS. On some worlds, this was pronounced as SS-A-SS. As the First Citizen of the whole empire, her full title in this regard was shortened and rendered as SSA-UR, or simply  SSAR. Does that ring a bell? Yes it does. In Russia, the King’s title was Tsar or Czar! This derived from SSAR no doubt.

It’s time you became aware folks that a great deal of the words we use in the languages of our day originate not from our world but from the world of an ancient  Reptilian Queen.  

HEAD OF SUPREME COURT

Like all sovereigns, the Orion Queen had a phalanx of royal assistants at the palace. As a group, the royal assistants (overwhelmingly female) were known as the SS-SS-IM, which simply meant those at the side of the Queen of the SSS World. When transposed, this gives us the English word “Miss”, whose meaning in one sense is a female assistant or deputy of some kind.   The most loyal of these royal  assistants were known as the SSI, or SS-US as a singular. SS-US is what eventually became Zeus in Greek, a title for their chief “god” who happened, now we know, to be the second-born son of the Anunnaki god Enlil (the Jehovah of the Bible) known as Nannar-Sin.  

The entire Orion Empire had a supreme court which was the court of last resort. This court, which was based on the SSS World, was known as the N Court or the AN Court, which simply meant the Court of Heaven. The N Court was presided over by the Orion Queen herself. The bench comprised of  9 members – seven females and two males and all were  royals. The seven females were the seven queens of the SSS World. Each of these queens went by the title N-N, NAN (maybe the source of “Nanny”?), or simply NIN. It explains why all the leading Anunnaki females had names that began with Nin – Ninmah (Enki and Enlil’s sister) and Ninaka (Inana, the notorious granddaughter of Enlil).  On the other hand, the title of the two male members was EN, meaning Lord in this context.   Again we see an echo of this in the names of the leading Anunnaki men such as Enki and Enlil for instance.  

Here on Earth, we address judges as “My Lord”. The US Supreme Courts both at state and federal level have nine members. The expression “To the Nth  Degree” is used to mean “to the utmost degree”. All these features of our nomenclature originate from Orion.

QUEEN OF SEXUAL BLING

The Orion Queen went by another title, KHAR (KH  being an abbreviation of Eke, meaning sovereign, and AR being a shortened form of Ari, meaning spirit/master).  This appellation entitled her to gratify herself in any way she desired. One of these ways was sexual pleasure.

In our world, particularly in modern times, sex is generally portrayed as harmful and in some cases even taboo. There are some who even consider it as desecrating and make a vow of lifelong abstinence from it, such as the monks and nuns of the Catholic faith. In the Reptilian worlds, however, sex (between opposite sexes) is a hallowed thing for as long as it is done out of genuine love and with mutual consent (Enki and Inanna, who were famed for being very sexually expressive, were not promiscuous folks: they were simply acting out the everyday culture of the place of their origin). In the Reptilian worlds, it is permitted to have sex with anybody – daughter, sister, aunt, in-laws, etc – for as long as they consent.

This is because Reptilians know the secret of sex. When it is done with mutual affection  and unselfishly, it produces an electrical connection that opens new vistas of illumination, insight, and spiritual wisdom and therefore edifies both participants. It explains why another term for sexual intercourse is “knowing”. This is supposed to be deeper spiritual knowledge as opposed to  superficial temporal knowledge. The electrical spark also boosts aspects of physical health in general. Sex should not simply be physical and emotional folks: it should primarily be mental  and spiritual. Women, who are innately more spiritual than men, have a better approach to it than men because in their case it is largely mental.

In order to indulge the joy of sexual pleasure, the Queen of Orion had carefully selected, gigolo-type  men who were dedicated to serve her on demand on a round robin basis and not orgiastically, which was more routine than seldom.  These men were in youthful bloom, healthy, exceptionally good-looking,  and fine physical specimens. They were KHAR-ISMATIC (yes, that is the true source of the English word “charisma”). Since they had such a privilleged status in the Queendom, they were known as the “Chosen Ones” or the “Anointed Ones”, what you would literally call “Christs” (more on this subject at a future date).   They were said to be anointed ones because by sleeping with the Queen, their members were bathed in her womanly fluids – the highest treat any male could wish for and therefore his greatest aspiration in life. They were the Supreme Males of the empire.

The official title of these alpha males was KHARIM. Besides giving us the modern word charisma, KHARIM also supplied the English words “harem”  (a string of women for a single man) and “harlot” (a woman with the habit of sleeping with different men). Here on Earth, it is women who have a unsavoury sexual reputation. On the SSS Reptilian World, it were men because they were very few and far between in a female dominated realm.  

But although the KHARIM had the loftiest, most envied  status among men, they also faced a certain peril. Failure to satisfy the Queen in any bout of intimacy invited serious reprisals.  It  entailed instant termination of office and automatic  exile to another planet. You never gave the Mighty Queen bad sex by simply fumbling and faltering and got away with it: that’s how much the Queen loved good sex folks.  She wanted it in good measure, shaken together, pressed down, and running over: no less.

Appendicitis: Recognising the Signs

29th March 2022

Many a times I get clients casually walking into my room and requesting to be checked for “appendix”.  Few questions down the line, it is clear they are unaware of where the appendix is or what to expect when one does have it (appendicitis). Jokingly (or maybe not) I would tell them they would possibly not be having appendicitis and laughing as hard as they are doing. On the other hand, I would be impressed that at least they know and acknowledge that appendicitis is a serious thing that they should be worried about.

So, what is Appendicitis?

Appendicitis is an inflammation of the appendix; a thin, finger-like pouch attached to the large intestine on the lower right side of the abdomen. Often the inflammation can be as a result of blockage either by the faecal matter, a foreign body, infection, trauma or a tumour. Appendicitis is generally acute, with symptoms coming on over the course of a day and becoming severe rapidly. Chronic appendicitis can also occur, though rarely. In chronic cases, symptoms are less severe and can last for days, weeks, or even months. 

Acute appendicitis is a medical emergency that almost always ends up in the operating theatre. Though the appendix is locally referred to as “lela la sukiri”, no one knows its exact role and it definitely does not have anything to do with sugar metabolism. Appendicitis can strike at any age, but it is mostly common from the teen years to the 30s.

Signs to look out for

If you have any of the following symptoms, go and see a Doctor immediately! Timely diagnosis and treatment are vital in acute appendicitis;

Sudden pain that starts around the navel and shifts to the lower right abdomen within hours

The pain becomes constant and increases in severity (or comes back despite painkillers)

The pain worsens on coughing, sneezing, laughing, walking or deep breaths

Loss of appetite

Nausea and vomiting

Fever

Constipation or diarrhoea

Abdominal bloating/fullness

Diagnosis

The doctor often asks questions regarding the symptoms and the patient’s medical history. This will be followed up by a physical examination in which the Doctor presses on the abdomen to check for any tenderness, and the location of the pain. With acute appendicitis, pressing on and letting go of the right lower abdomen usually elicits an excruciatingly unbearable pain. Several tests may be ordered to determine especially the severity of the illness and to rule out other causes of abdominal pain. The tests may conditions include: blood tests, a pregnancy test, urinalysis, abdominal  “How do ultrasound scans work?” ultrasound (scan), CT scan or MRI Scan.

Treatment

The gold standard treatment of acute appendicitis is surgical removal of the appendix known as appendectomy. Luckily, a person can live just fine without an appendix! Surgical options include laparoscopy or open surgery and the type will be decided on by the Surgeon after assessing the patient’s condition. Painkillers and antibiotics are also given intravenously usually before, during and after the surgery.

Complications

Appendicitis can cause serious complications such as;

Appendicular mass/abscessIf the appendix is inflamed or bursts, one may develop a pocket of pus around it known as an abscess. In most cases, the abscess will be treated with antibiotics and drained first by placing a tube through one’s abdominal wall into the abscess. The tube may be left in place for a few hours or days while the infection is clearing up but ultimately one would still have surgery to remove the appendix.

Peritonitis – without treatment, the appendix can rupture/burst. The risk of this rises 48–72 hours after symptoms start. A ruptured appendix spreads the infection throughout the abdomen (peritonitis). This is life threatening and requires immediate surgery to remove the appendix and clean the abdominal cavity.

Death – The complications of appendicitis (and appendectomy) can be life threatening, only if the diagnosis has been missed and no proper treatment has been given on time. This is rare though with the evolved medical care.

A degree of common sense

7th February 2022

Here’s a news item from last month you may have missed. In December 2021 the University of Staffordshire announced it would be offered a degree course in pantomime! Yes, that’s right, a degree in popular festive entertainment, the Christmas panto.

We used to have one here, put on by the Capitol Players, though it seems to have fallen away in recent times, but the spectacle is still alive and well in the UK, both in local ad-dram (amateur dramatic ) societies and on the London stage and most of the major cities, these latter productions usually featuring at least one big-draw name from the world of show business with ticket prices commensurate with the star’s salary.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the pantomime format, it consists of a raucous mixture of songs and comedy all based around a well-known fairy or folk tale. Aladdin and His Magic Lamp, Cinderella, Jack & The Beanstalk & Dick Whittington are perennial favourites but any well-known tall tale goes. There is no set script, unlike a play, and storyline is just a peg to hang a coat of contemporary, often bawdy, gags on, in what should be a rollicking production of cross dressing – there has to be at least one pantomime dame, played by a man and always a figure of fun, and a Principal Boy, ostensibly the male lead, yet played by an attractive young woman.

As an art form it can trace its roots back to 16th century Italy and the Commedia Del’Arte which used a mélange of music, dance, acrobatics along with a cast of comic stock characters so it has a long and proud theatrical tradition but you have to wonder, does that really qualify it as a suitable subject for a university? Further, what use might any degree be that can be acquired in a single year? And last but not least, how much standing does any degree have which comes from a jumped-up polytechnic, granted university status along with many of its ilk back in 1992, for reasons best known to the government of the time? Even more worrying are the stated aims of the course.

Staffordshire University claims it is a world first and the masters course is aimed at people working inside as well as outside the industry. Students on the course, due to start in September 2022, will get practical training in the art form as well as research the discipline.

“We want to see how far we can take this,” Associate Professor of Acting and Directing Robert Marsden said. The role of pantomime in the 21st Century was also going to be examined, he said, “particularly post Me Too and Black Lives Matter”. Questions including “how do we address the gender issues, how do we tell the story of Aladdin in 2021, how do we get that balance of male/female roles?” will be asked, Prof Marsden added.

Eek! Sounds like Prof. Marsden wants to rob it of both its history and its comedic aspects – well, good luck with that! Of course that isn’t the only bizarre, obscure and frankly time and money-wasting degree course available. Staying with the performing arts there’s Contemporary Circus and Physical Performance at Bath Spa University. Sounds like fun but why on earth would a circus performer need a university degree?

Or how about a Surf Science and Technology degree at Cornwall College (part of the University of Plymouth). Where the one thing you don’t learn is….how to surf!

Then there is a  degree in Floral Design at University Centre Myerscough. No, I hadn’t heard of it either – turns out it’s a college of further education in Preston, a town that in my experience fits the old joke of ‘I went there once…..It was closed’ to a ‘T’!

Another handy (pun intended) art is that of Hand Embroidery BA (Hons), offered at the University for the Creative Arts. Or you could waste away sorry, while away, your time on a course in Animal Behaviour and Psychology. This degree at the University of Chester teaches you about the way animals think and feel. Cockroaches have personalities according to the subject specs– you couldn’t make it up.

Happily all these educational institutes may have to look to their laurels and try to justify their very existence in the near future. In plans announced this week, universities could face fines of up to £500,000 (P750m), be stripped of their right to take student loans or effectively shut down if they cannot get 60 per cent of students into a professional job under a crackdown on ‘Mickey Mouse’ courses. Further, at least 80 per cent of students should not drop out after the first year, and 75 per cent should graduate.

The rules, published by the Office for Students (OfS), aim to eliminate ‘low-quality’ courses by setting new standards & requiring courses to improve their rating in the TEF, the official universities ratings system. Universities not meeting the new standards will not be able to charge full annual fees of £9,250. Unconventional courses that could fall victim to the new rules could include the University of Sunderland’s BA in Fashion Journalism, where students learn essential’ skills such as catwalk reporting and the history of Chanel.  They have only a 40 per cent chance of entering highly skilled work 15 months after leaving.

At University College Birmingham, BSC Bakery and Patisserie Technology students – who learn how to ‘make artisan bread’ – have a 15 per cent chance of a professional job within 15 months. Universities minister Michelle Donelan welcomed the move, saying ‘When students go to university, they do so in the pursuit of a life-changing education, one which helps pave their path towards a highly skilled career. Any university that fails to match this ambition must be held to account.’

OfS found that at 25 universities, fewer than half of students find professional work within 15 months.  Business and management courses at the University of Bedfordshire (14.8 per cent) were among the least likely to lead to graduate-level jobs.  Asked to comment, the University of Sunderland said it always looked ‘to find ways to improve outcomes’; University College Birmingham said data on graduates and definition of ‘professional work’ was limited. I’ll bet it is! As the saying goes, ’what the eye doesn’t see, the heart doesn’t grieve over’. What a pantomime!

Why regular health checks are important!

7th February 2022

With the world still reeling from the negative impact of the Coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19), and the latest Omicron variant (which is responsible for the ongoing global forth wave) on everyone’s lips, we should not forget and neglect other aspects of our health.

While anyone can get infected with corona virus and become seriously ill or die at any age, studies continue to show that people aged 60 years and above, and those with underlying medical conditions like hypertension, heart and lung problems, diabetes, obesity, cancers, or mental illness are at a higher risk of developing serious illness or dying from covid-19.

It is a good habit to visit a doctor regularly, even if you feel healthy. Regular health checks can help identify any early signs of health issues or assess your risk of future illness hence prompting one to take charge and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Heart disease, diabetes, some cancers and other non-communicable diseases (even communicable) can often be picked up in their early stages, when chances for effective treatment are high.

During a health check, your doctor will take a thorough history from you regarding your medical history, your family’s history of disease, your social life and habits, including your diet, physical activity, alcohol use, smoking and drug intake. S/he will examine you including measuring your weight, blood pressure, feeling your body organs and listening to your heart and lungs amongst the rest. Depending on the assessment, your doctor will notify you how often you need to have a health check. If you have a high risk of a particular health condition, your doctor may recommend more frequent health checks from an early age.

Diet – a healthy diet improves one’s general health and wellbeing. It is recommended that we have at least two serves of fruit and five serves of vegetables daily. Physical activity – regular physical activity has significant health benefits on one’s body, mind & soul. It contributes to preventing and managing non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, cancers and diabetes, reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, enhances thinking, learning, and judgment skills and improves overall well-being. According to the world health organisation (WHO), people who are insufficiently active have a 20% to 30% increased risk of death compared to people who are sufficiently active. Aim for 30 minutes to an hour of moderate physical activity at least four days in a week. Examples of moderate physical activity include brisk walking, gentle swimming and social tennis.

Weight – maintaining a healthy weight range helps in preventing long-term complications like cardiovascular disease, diabetes and arthritis. It is also vital for one’s mental wellbeing and keeping up with normal activities of daily living. Ask your doctor to check your body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference annually. If you are at a higher risk, you should have your weight checked more frequently and a stern management plan in place.

Alcohol – as per WHO reports, alcohol consumption contributes to 3 million deaths each year globally as well as to the disabilities and poor health of millions of people. Healthy drinking entails taking no more than two standard drinks per drinking day with at least two alcohol-free days in a week.

Smoking –Nicotine contained in tobacco is highly addictive and tobacco use is a major risk factor for cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, many different types of cancer, and many other debilitating health conditions. Every year, at least a whopping 8 million people succumb from tobacco use worldwide. Tobacco can also be deadly for non-smokers through second-hand smoke exposure. It is not ‘fashionable’ if it is going to cost you and your loved ones lives! If you are currently smoking, talk to your doctor and get help in quitting as soon as possible to reduce the harm.

Blood pressure: Hypertension is a serious medical condition and can increase the risk of heart, brain, kidney and other diseases. It is a major cause of premature death worldwide, with upwards of 1 in 4 men and 1 in 5 women – over a billion people – having the condition. Have your blood pressure checked annually if it is normal, you are aged under 40 and there is no family history of hypertension. You might need to have it checked more frequently if you are over 40, your blood pressure is on the high side, or you have a personal or family history of high blood pressure, stroke or heart attack. Your doctor will be there to guide you.

Dental care – eating a low-sugar diet and cleaning and flossing the teeth regularly can reduce one’s risk of tooth decay, gum disease and tooth loss. Visit a dentist every six months for a dental examination and professional cleaning, or more frequently as per your dentist’s advice.
Blood tests – annual to five-yearly blood tests may be done to further assess or confirm risk of disease. These may include blood sugar levels, cholesterol levels, kidney function, liver function, tumour markers, among other things. They may be done frequently if there is already an existing medical condition.

Cancer screening – various screening techniques can be done to detect different cancers in their early or pre-cancer stages. These include; skin inspections for any suspicious moles/spots, two-yearly mammograms for those at risk of developing breast cancer, Pap smear or the new Cervical Screening Test (CST) every five years, stool tests and colonoscopy (every five years) for those at most risk of bowel cancer, prostate cancer screening for those at risk (over 45 years of age, family history of cancers etc.). Discuss appropriate tests with your doctor.

Vaccinations – You should discuss with your doctor about the necessary routine immunisation, in particular; the Covid-19 vaccines, an annual flu shot, a five-yearly pneumococcal vaccine if you have never had one or you are immunocompromised and any other boosters that you might need.
