Nibiru crisis engenders change of the guard in principal Wolfen World
King Anan of the Sirius star system was not only a great imperial governor. He was a warrior king of surpassing feats. Not one to restrict himself simply to arm-chair administration of his empire, he also took part in major cosmic wars, whether these be of conquests or of putting down a sustained rebellion in some colony along the 9th Passageway. This is likely where our kings of old here on Earth got the cue: they all were battle field commanders, examples of whom include Alexander the Great, Napoleon, Shaka the Zulu, and the great Sechele, King of the BaKwena and de facto founder of modern Botswana.
In the course of time, a crisis arose on a planet which Sirius had long colonised. This planet was part of a planetary system known as Buida, after its sun. Buida (meaning “far-flung”) was already part of the greater Orion Empire and was located along the 9th Passageway, which was policed by King Anan’s army on behalf of the Orion Queen, the overall sovereign. About 4 billion years ago, the planet was part of Sirius B in its formative stages. Then when Sirius B aborted as a star, that is, failed to develop into a full-fledged sun, the planet was lobbed into the greater void of space. It continued to drift and strayed close to Buida’s planetary system, whereupon it was permanently caught up by the gravitational pull of the giant planet Anshar, which we now call Neptune, as the 10th planet.
Buida is what we now call Sol, our sun. The captured planet is variously known as Planet X, Planet 9, or more commonly Nibiru, and having the most elongated orbit of all planets of the Solar System, it is seen only once every 3600 years. Nibiru was the first planet the Anunnaki colonised in the Solar System. This is understandable in view of the fact that when it is at its apogee (the furthest point from the Sun), it is only a stone’s throw, in a manner of speaking, from Sirius A, which is only 8.7 light years away.
At the time King Anan was ruling Sirius, Nibiru was being ruled by another Sirian royal called Lhama. Meanwhile, King Anan was attended at court by his half-brother Alshar.
Alshar went by the title cup-bearer. The cup-bearer was actually the Crown Prince. Those days in Sirius, the Crown Prince was not the King’s son but his half-brother typically. It seems children were feared by their fathers since they tended to be overly ambitious and cast covetous eyes on the throne. If you recall, the death of Queen Uraki I, the first monarch of Sirius under Orion rule, was plotted by her own daughter. Here on Earth, the early Roman emperors almost never sired children as they dreaded the possibility of patricide; instead, they preferred to raise a step-son or groom a general as heir. King Shaka also refrained from producing a heir as he was paranoid of being ousted in cold blood. It didn’t help him though: he was killed by an otherwise aloof half-brother. That is exactly the same fate King Anan was destined to suffer.
ATMOSPHERIC BREACH ON NIBIRU
Under the rule of Lhama, Nibiru was beset by a crisis that had been scores of years in the making (a year on Nibiru, called a shar, is equivalent to 3600 Earth years). The short summers became extremely hot and the long winters severely cold. Although such a phenomenon had been experienced in the past, this time around it was more pronounced and more prolonged. Some ranks of Nibiru’s leading meteorologists pointed to a kind of Ozone hole as the cause, a gap in the upper reaches of the atmosphere – something our planet is presently afflicted with too.
“In the atmosphere a breaching has occurred; that was their finding,” relates the great Anunnaki Enki in Zecharia Sitchin’s The Lost Book of Enki. “Volcanoes, the atmosphere’s forbears, less belching were. In the reign of Anshar and Kishar, pestilences of fields made appearance.”
It was Enshar, Anshar’s successor, who diligently applied himself to Nibiru’s Ozone hole crisis. Enshar thought in order to best understand Nibiru’s predicament, a closer and more meticulous study had to be done of the atmospheres of other planets in the Solar System. “With great understanding he was born, with much learning he mastered much knowledge,” Enki lauds the highly esteemed king.
The planets that were studied closely were the first four major ones from the direction Nibiru approaches. These were Ea (Neptune), Anu (Uranus), Anshar (Saturn) and Kishar (Jupiter). Pluto, the first to be encountered, was inconsequential by virtue of its small size: the Anunnaki called it “Gaga”, a mere messenger. Note the Anunnaki’s impressive knowledge of the Solar System: they were aware of Pluto’s erratic orbit, which at times takes it between Neptune and Uranus, for Enki writes, “As a messenger, Gaga among the others coursed, sometimes first Nibiru to meet.”
We’re also told that the Anunnaki were wary of venturing beyond the Asteroid Belt, which they called a “hammered-out bracelet”, and study the other planets, namely Mars, Earth, Venus, and Mercury in that order. They referred to this region as “Heaven’s Forbidden” which the asteroids protected from havoc. “Other children of the Sun, four in number, from intrusion bracelet shielded,” notes Enki, who was the Anunnaki’s all-round genius of all time and who we shall be discussing in detail very soon.
The Anunnaki tried all sorts of scientific tricks to remedy the atmospheric breach but to no avail. One of the mechanisms they attempted was something in the guise of what is termed a Dyson Sphere. This is a kind of artificial shield around the planet. Whatever it was, Enki does not elaborate but we know that it is a feasible alternative. Here on Earth, such a device was proposed by mathematician and physicist Freeman Dyson in 1960, from whom it derives its name (Dyson’s version, though, was envisaged as a around-the-sun system of orbiting solar panels to capture its energy to the maximum). If the Anunnaki of Nibiru were capable of such a device, then they are on Type II of what is called the Kardashev Scale. The Kardashev Scale is a method of measuring a civilisation’s level of technological advancement. The scale has three designated categories: Type I, II, and III. Here on Earth, it is reckoned that we’re somewhere around 0.72 and may attain Type I status in about 100 to 200 years; Type II status in a few thousand years; and Type III status in about 100,000 to a million years.
Be that as it may, Nibiru’s version of the Dyson Sphere failed dismally. “A new shield to embrace the planet was attempted; all that was thrust up back to the ground came down,” says Enki. In fact, the crisis worsened under King Enshar. “In the reign of Enshar, the breach in the skies grew bigger. Rains were withheld, winds blew harder; springs from the depths did not arise.” Scientists suggested that a means be invented to get the volcanoes to “belch” more and therefore replenish the dwindling atmosphere. But just what kind of tools these might be everybody was at a loss. Meanwhile, in the palace, “there was distress”. It was thought a curse had befallen the monarch.
THE GOLD SOLUTION
Enshar’s successor was Duuru. Duuru was born by Enshar’s concubine, his Queen Ninshar, also a half-sister, having given him daughters only. On Nibiru, when a Queen was unable to produce a heir, the Law of Succession allowed for the firstborn son by a concubine to succeed to the throne. Duuru was a kind of maverick King: he pooh-poohed the idea of marrying a half-sister and instead hitched a childhood sweetheart – a non-royal. She became known as Queen Dauru.
Duuru, unfortunately, was unable to produce offspring. But one day, a beautiful baby boy who had been dumped by its mother was brought to the palace gates and the King considered this a godsend: he adopted the boy without much ado, named him Lahma, and proclaimed him as his heir. There was outrage in palace circles.
“In the palace, the princes were grumbling; in the Council of Counsellors there were complaints,” writes Enki. “In the royal court, confusion was rampant: sons were not heirs, wives were not half-sisters. In the palace fertility was absent: neither son nor daughter was brought forth.”
Fertility among Nibiruians as a whole was at its lowest ebb too. Just what on Nibiru was happening? Meanwhile, scientists came up with the suggestion that in order to heal the atmospheric breach, “weapons of terror” should be created: these should be used to “split mountains asunder” so that the volcanoes should start belching and therefore reinforce the atmosphere. This was an extreme but desperate measure, as weapons of mass destruction had long been banned on Nibiru. The alternative was okayed but it yielded no fruit. Laments Enki: “One circuit Nibiru completed, two shars (two years each equivalent to 3600 Earth years) Nibiru to count continued. In the fields, affliction was not diminished. By volcanic belching the atmosphere was not repaired.”
Meanwhile, however, space probes had detected the presence of rich deposits of gold – an extremely rare metal on Nibiru – in the Asteroid Belt. Scientists suggested that a manned expedition be made there to mine gold as it represented the most viable solution to the Ozone hole problem. “It was the only substance that to the finest powder could be ground; lofted high to heaven, suspended it could remain,” states Enki. “Thus with replenishments, the breach it would heal, protection make better.” So the scientists made the recommendation that “let celestial boats be built, let a celestial fleet the gold to Nibiru bring over”. “Celestial Boats” was the Anunnaki term for spaceships.
Space missions to the Asteroid Belt were attempted over 4 shars but all the missions not only were unsuccessful but disastrous: all the astronauts sent on these missions perished. The reigning King Lahma and his Queen Lahama were religious fanatics: they seemed resigned to the crisis facing Nibiru, maintaining that instead of using their own artificial means, Nibiruians should seek the intervention of “the Creator of All” through prayer. Their subjects thought they had lost their marbles.
“In the land, strife was abundant,” narrates Enki. “Unity was gone. In the royal courts savants were coming and going, counsellors were rushing in and rushing out. The King to their words paid no attention. Counsel from his spouse he only sought. The princes were astir; at the King accusations were directed. Foolishly unreasoning, greater calamities instead of cure he brought forth.”
It was feared a revolution on Nibiru was brewing. “From the olden storehouses, weapons were retrieved; of rebellion there was much speaking.”
In the midst of this groundswell of disaffection both in royal circles and amongst the body politic, King Lahma sent to King Anan in Sirius to prescribe a way forward.
ANU ASCENDS TO POWER
When King Anan of Sirius received the message of the crisis on Nibiru, he assigned his No. 2 Alshar to attend to the Nibiru problem. Now, Alshar was not only in direct charge of the imperial Sirian army but he was a most ambitious, power-hungry man. He coveted power and wanted to be his own sovereign. To him therefore, the Nibiru crisis was an opportunity to realize his dream of expeditiously becoming King. So what he did was to stoke the fires of the anarchy that was sweeping Nibiru with a view to have Lahma overthrown, whereupon he would take over the most important planet in a potentially very rich planetary system. Alshar figured that if he took the reins on Nibiru, it would be easy for him to secede from Sirius and the broader Orion Empire.
In the event, Lahma was deposed and murdered. The forces that seized power were working under the clandestine direction of Alshar. King Anan did not suspect anything; instead, he thought Alshar had dismally and catastrophically failed to contain the situation. Being a warrior king, Anan decided to enter the lists himself. He voyaged to Nibiru with the aim of crashing the rebellion and restoring total order on the planet. It wasn’t as easy as he had anticipated though. The rebels put up a formidable fight. They were ultimately defeated but King Anan was seriously wounded. By the time he was brought back to Sirius, he was dead. The Orion Queen conferred the highest honour on the late King and gave the procedural green light for Alshar to succeed to the throne. On his coronation, Alshar took a new name. He was to be known as King Alalu.
Meanwhile, King Anan’s eldest grandson Anu was seething. He rightly suspected that the death of his grandfather was an inside job, that it was a tactical elimination masterminded by Alalu. As such, he undertook to secretly plot the ouster of Alalu. And not only that: he decided that once Alalu was overthrown, he would move to declare Sirius and the entire 9th Passageway independent of the Queen of Orion as he was disappointed that the Queen had failed to discern Alalu’s artifice with respect to the death of his grandfather.
When Alalu got wind of Anu’s schemings, he was alarmed. He knew that the potential to overthrow him was feasible. If he himself had pulled off a tactical coup against the deceased king, what would prevent his own detractors from doing so?
In order to pacify Anu and win him over, Alalu decided to make him his cup-bearer. Anu accepted the offer but it was simply his way of biding time. It was not long before he staged a direct coup and assumed the reins. It was easy for Anu to topple Alalu in that he was a scion of the great An, who was a most beloved king and still was looked upon with nostalgia. The fact that the coup entailed hardly any bloodshed attests to the popularity of Anu. Alalu did not put up a sustained fight to reclaim the throne. Instead, he decided to flee Sirius altogether for dear life and head for the planetary system of Buida.
The planet Alalu chose as his asylum was the third from the Buida star. It would in future be known as Kisiri, meaning “Mineral Resource Centre”, since it was so richly endowed with minerals (from ki [to produce, manufacture, or create] and siri [to smelt ore]). We today call it Earth.
Seventy-seven years ago, on the evening of December 2, 1943, the Germans launched a surprise air raid on allied shipping in the Italian port of Bari, which was then the key supply centre for the British 8th army’s advance in Italy.
The attack was spearheaded by 105 Junkers JU88 bombers under the overall command of the infamous Air Marshal Wolfram von Richthofen (who had initially achieved international notoriety during the Spanish Civil War for his aerial bombardment of Guernica). In a little over an hour the German aircraft succeeded in sinking 28 transport and cargo ships, while further inflicting massive damage to the harbour’s facilities, resulting in the port being effectively put out of action for two months.
Over two thousand ground personnel were killed during the raid, with the release of a secret supply of mustard gas aboard one of the destroyed ships contributing to the death toll, as well as subsequent military and civilian casualties. The extent of the later is a controversy due to the fact that the American and British governments subsequently covered up the presence of the gas for decades.
At least five Batswana were killed and seven critically wounded during the raid, with one of the wounded being miraculously rescued floating unconscious out to sea with a head wound. He had been given up for dead when he returned to his unit fourteen days later. The fatalities and casualties all occurred when the enemy hit an ammunition ship adjacent to where 24 Batswana members of the African Pioneer Corps (APC) 1979 Smoke Company where posted.
Thereafter, the dozen surviving members of the unit distinguished themselves for their efficiency in putting up and maintaining smokescreens in their sector, which was credited with saving additional shipping. For his personal heroism in rallying his men following the initial explosions Company Corporal Chitu Bakombi was awarded the British Empire Medal, while his superior officer, Lieutenant N.F. Moor was later given an M.B.E.
Remember: bricks and cement are used to build a house, but mutual love, respect and companionship are used to build a HOME. And amongst His signs is this: He creates for you mates out of your own kind, so that you may find contentment (Sukoon) with them, and He engenders love and tenderness between you; in this behold, there are signs (messages) indeed for people who reflect and think (Quran 30:21).
This verse talks about contentment; this implies companionship, of their being together, sharing together, supporting one another and creating a home of peace. This verse also talks about love between them; this love is both physical and emotional. For love to exist it must be built on the foundation of a mutually supportive relationship guided by respect and tenderness. As the Quran says; ‘they are like garments for you, and you are garments for them (Quran 2:187)’. That means spouses should provide each other with comfort, intimacy and protection just as clothing protects, warms and dignifies the body.
In Islam marriage is considered an ‘ibaadah’, (an act of pleasing Allah) because it is about a commitment made to each other, that is built on mutual love, interdependence, integrity, trust, respect, companionship and harmony towards each other. It is about building of a home on an Islamic foundation in which peace and tranquillity reigns wherein your offspring are raised in an atmosphere conducive to a moral and upright upbringing so that when we all stand before Him (Allah) on that Promised Day, He will be pleased with them all.
Most marriages start out with great hopes and rosy dreams; spouses are truly committed to making their marriages work. However, as the pressures of life mount, many marriages change over time and it is quite common for some of them to run into problems and start to flounder as the reality of living with a spouse that does not meet with one’s pre-conceived ‘expectations’. However, with hard work and dedication, couples can keep their marriages strong and enjoyable. How is it done? What does it take to create a long-lasting, satisfying marriage?
Below are some of the points that have been taken from a marriage guidance article I read recently and adapted for this purposes.
POSITIVITY Spouses should have far more positive than negative interactions. If there is too much negativity — criticizing, demanding, name-calling, holding grudges, etc. — the relationship will suffer. However, if there is never any negativity, it probably means that frustrations and grievances are not getting ‘air time’ and unresolved tension is accumulating inside one or both partners waiting to ‘explode’ one day.
“Let not some men among you laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): nor let some women laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): nor defame nor be sarcastic to each other, nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames.” (49:11)
We all have our individual faults though we may not see them nor want to admit to them but we will easily identify them in others. The key is balance between the two extremes and being supportive of one another. To foster positivity in a marriage that help make them stable and happy, being affectionate, truly listening to each other, taking joy in each other’s achievements and being playful are just a few examples of positive interactions. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “The believers who show the most perfect faith are those who have the best character and the best of you are those who are best to their wives”
Another characteristic of happy marriages is empathy; understanding your spouses’ perspective by putting oneself in his or her shoes. By showing that understanding and identifying with your spouse is important for relationship satisfaction. Spouses are more likely to feel good about their marriage and if their partner expresses empathy towards them. Husbands and wives are more content in their relationships when they feel that their partners understand their thoughts and feelings.
Successful married couples grow with each other; it simply isn’t wise to put any person in charge of your happiness. You must be happy with yourself before anyone else can be. You are responsible for your actions, your attitudes and your happiness. Your spouse just enhances those things in your life. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “Treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers.”
Successful marriages involve both spouses’ commitment to the relationship. The married couple should learn the art of compromise and this usually takes years. The largest parts of compromise are openness to the other’s point of view and good communication when differences arise.
When two people are truly dedicated to making their marriage work, despite the unavoidable challenges and obstacles that come, they are much more likely to have a relationship that lasts. Husbands and wives who only focus on themselves and their own desires are not as likely to find joy and satisfaction in their relationships.
Another basic need in a relationship is each partner wants to feel valued and respected. When people feel that their spouses truly accept them for who they are, they are usually more secure and confident in their relationships. Often, there is conflict in marriage because partners cannot accept the individual preferences of their spouses and try to demand change from one another. When one person tries to force change from another, he or she is usually met with resistance.
However, change is much more likely to occur when spouses respect differences and accept each other unconditionally. Basic acceptance is vital to a happy marriage. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “It is the generous (in character) who is good to women, and it is the wicked who insults them.” “Overlook (any human faults) with gracious forgiveness.” (Quran 15:85)
COMPASSION, MUTUAL LOVE AND RESPECT
Other important components of successful marriages are love, compassion and respect for each other. The fact is, as time passes and life becomes increasingly complicated, the marriage is often stressed and suffers as a result. A happy and successful marriage is based on equality. When one or the other dominates strongly, intimacy is replaced by fear of displeasing.
It is all too easy for spouses to lose touch with each other and neglect the love and romance that once came so easily. It is vital that husbands and wives continue to cultivate love and respect for each other throughout their lives. If they do, it is highly likely that their relationships will remain happy and satisfying. Move beyond the fantasy and unrealistic expectations and realize that marriage is about making a conscious choice to love and care for your spouse-even when you do not feel like it.
Seldom can one love someone for whom we have no respect. This also means that we have to learn to overlook and forgive the mistakes of one’s partner. In other words write the good about your partner in stone and the bad in dust, so that when the wind comes it blows away the bad and only the good remains.
Paramount of all, marriage must be based on the teachings of the Noble Qur’an and the teachings and guidance of our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). To grow spiritually in your marriage requires that you learn to be less selfish and more loving, even during times of conflict. A marriage needs love, support, tolerance, honesty, respect, humility, realistic expectations and a sense of humour to be successful.
The past week or two has been a mixed grill of briefs in so far as the national employment picture is concerned. BDC just injected a further P64 million in Kromberg & Schubert, the automotive cable manufacturer and exporter, to help keep it afloat in the face of the COVID-19-engendered global economic apocalypse. The financial lifeline, which follows an earlier P36 million way back in 2017, hopefully guarantees the jobs of 2500, maybe for another year or two.
It was also reported that a bulb manufacturing company, which is two years old and is youth-led, is making waves in Selibe Phikwe. Called Bulb Word, it is the only bulb manufacturing operation in Botswana and employs 60 people. The figure is not insignificant in a town that had 5000 jobs offloaded in one fell swoop when BCL closed shop in 2016 under seemingly contrived circumstances, so that as I write, two or three buyers have submitted bids to acquire and exhume it from its stage-managed grave.
