The Birth of Mercury and the Demise of Mars

The Egyptian Aten was the Planet Mercury

In this, and subsequent essay’s throughout my web (& books) it will be demonstrated how the so-called Aten has nothing whatsoever to do with the Sun (Re). The Aten was originally the solid iron core of Mars. In a process involving electromagnetic forces involving Earth it was sucked out through the Valles Marineris (enormous scar on Mars, image on right) to become the planet Mercury. This almost incomprehensible event was first proposed by physicist and catastrophist J Ackerman (

Akhenaten, the Amarna Period, the Valles Marineris and Mars

Iron Core
The iron planet Mercury now covered in a thin layer of rocky debris.
Origin of this debris, blasted off Mars and ‘battled up’ as recorded in the numerous
but physically unverified Pharaonic Battles.

The extraction of Mercury occurred sometime around the 7th century BC (Revised Chronology). The Egyptians meticulously recorded this incomprehensible event and comes to us via the heretic Mars/Akhenaten and the 17 year period (Earth-Mars synodic cycle) known as the Amarna Period.

Conventional wisdom says Mars once held a magnetic field driven by a solid spinning iron/nickel core but through some yet to be unexplained catastrophic event, its core froze leaving it open to the effects of the solar wind which subsequently depleted its magnetic field and striped Mars of its atmosphere, oceans, etc. Most of this is correct only the core of Mars DID NOT freeze or stop spinning (how?!), it was catastrophically extracted through the Valles Marineris to become the planet we now call Mercury.

The following is taken from a boundary stelae at Akhetaten, it clearly alludes to a separate body to the sun (Re).

Akhenaten summoned his officials in Akhetaten and solemnly announced:

“Behold Aten! The Aten wishes to have [a House?] made for him as a monument with an eternal and everlasting name. Now it is Aten, my father, who advised me concerning it, nor had any people in the entire land ever advised me concerning it, to tell me [a plan] for making Akhetaten in this distant place. … Behold, it is pharaoh who found it, when it did not belong to a god, nor to a goddess; when it did not belong to a male ruler, nor to a female ruler; when it did not belong to any people. … My father, Hor-Aten, proclaimed to me: ‘It is to belong to my Person, to be Akhetaten continually forever” (Murnane 1995: 75).

A few images of the Aten/Mercury. Please note; the following Atens’ along with their unusual lopsided ‘rays’ were all once painted a vivid RED, not yellow as erroneously portrayed in the numerous ‘Hollywood’ documentaries.

Extreme gravitational and electromagnetic forces saw all bodies appear distorted before, during, and after the extraction of the Aten (Mercury) from Mars (Akhenaten) – this was reflected in the imagery where the whole Amarna royal family (including the kids) were many times shown distorted and elongated. Akhenaten-Mars was many times depicted in female form because having just given birth to a new Sun god (for at least 17 years the Aten was the new Re), the terrestrial Egyptians hadn’t got a clue as to what was going on. In giving birth to a new deity he/she had to be a female, right? Or so the natural reasoning went.

The distorted elongated children are the residual blobs or droplets of iron also torn from the interior of Mars. Some of these at least, I believe would later impact the Moon to form the Maria. Large visible (now black) circular ‘seas’ on the moon.

The distorted Blue Crown worn by Mars/Akhenaten represents the distorted shape of Mars adorning a planetary ring system. Nefertiti’s crown is a symbolic representation of Venus ‘pillars.’ An apparition that can be observed even today – only 4,000 years ago, as a result of Venus orbiting much closer to earth, such images were far more prominent (see here & here). These pillared apparitions would lead to the building of enormous obelisks in the New Kingdom. Tuthmosis/Moon (‘born of the lunar god Thoth’) would also adorn ‘pillars’ and command the building of many obelisks.

The close proximity of Mars/Akhenaten (“Illuminated manifestation of the Aten”) to Venus/Nefertiti (“The Beautiful One Has Come”) simply reveals a conjunction between Mars and Venus. The fact that they are seated suggests to me both bodies appeared almost stationary in the heavens – Mars and Venus locked into a geosynchronous orbit (spinning with earth) around the earth. Pharaonic Mars ‘locked in’ above the Trans Himalayas, thus artificially and catastrophically dragging up this very ‘recent’ mountain range.

Mars ‘locked’ above the Himalayas – a brief chronological order of events pertaining to the Amarna period.

Mars locked into a geosynchronous orbit above the Trans-Himalayas thus forming them. During this docking and as the larger magnet of earth began to suck out Mars’ smaller magnet (Mercury) Mars was named Amenhotep III (Amun=hotep = “Amun is pleased/content” = Amun as the aurora still observed). Mars/Amenhotep also held the very apt (& never repeated) title “The Dazzling Re Disk of all Lands” (the core of Mars illuminating Mars even brighter than the red sun) and adorned wings as it spun off volatiles as such like (relevant link). The winged disk of Mesopotamian cultures should also be synchronised with the winged disk of Mars.

At this time and in an act of appeasement an unprecedented amount (many hundreds) of Sekhmet statues were fashioned as the skies became even more deadly than ‘normal.’ Sekhmet = ‘Mistress of Dread,’ ‘Powerful of Heart,’ the ‘Scarlet Lady, Avenger of Wrongs,’ ‘Lady of Flame,’ ‘Eye of Re,’ and the ‘Lady of Slaughter.’ Many hundreds of Sekhmet statues have recently been disinterred in Karnak dated to around the time of Amenhotep III (Mars). This is no coincidence.

Sometimes the deadly sky would be directly attributed to the astral kings (as you would expect) for example we find references to the kings as “He is Sekhmet…”

The worship of Re-horakhte (Horus of the horizon) also became prevalent as Mars/Amenhotep in appearing stationary above the Himalayas was literally, from the location of Egypt, the “Re-Horus” of the horizon (Horus = the embodiment of kingship). All god kings when reigning over earth were “Horus God of Earth.” Another way of putting it, Mars/Amenhotep in the image of the Re on the horizon.

Upon separation Mars/Amenhotep became subservient to the Aten/Mercury as rays of energy were observed shining on Mars, exactly as portrayed.

Such scenes (above) were never to be repeated before or after the Amarna epoch because this incomprehensible event occurred only once.

As the doctrine of heaven had to be obeyed an immediate name change was in order – Amenhotep, previously “Amun is Content” now becomes Akhenaten, “Illuminated manifestation of the Aten” as the energy from the new born Mercury literally shines on Akhenaten Mars. This swing of allegiance away from Amun also due to auroral manifestations being blotted out by the light of Mercury/Aten.

Incessant sprites were also seen emanating from Mars/Akhenaten and Comet Venus/Nefertiti (“The Beautiful One has Arrived”), as depicted (sprites also discharging from earth). I would argue pretty much as you would expect really.

The Egyptians believed that to get to the Aten everything had to go through Akhenaten, this is because the rays of energy (light) emanating from the Aten/Mercury predominantly shone directly towards its parent body Mars/Akhenaten. Thus only Akhenaten/Mars had direct contact with the one and only sole god, the Aten-Mercury.

Mercury very rapidly cooled down and in taking on the attributes of the red sun (red disk) joined the royal bloodline of god kings. One of the first kingly names given to Mercury was Seti – “He of the god Seth.” Yet another very apt title as Mercury/Seti caused much devastation as it slowly migrated towards the Sun with Venus. Prior to this Mars and Mercury danced with earth for many years following the Amarna period. This reaches us via recorded history and the numerous so called co-regencies – Mars and Mercury as god kings ruling together. A point in case would be Seti/Mercury and his son “Ramesses the Great” (Mars). Both are depicted in reliefs smiting Egypt’s enemies. Ramesses, general of the army, apparently only 10 years old (yeah right! only above does this make sense).

As for additional geological evidence I cite Al de Grazia’s works “The Iron Age of Mars” where he fully embraces Ackerman’s Mercury from Mars theory and proposes the earth is covered in a layer of iron debris from Mars as a direct result of this incomprehensible event. (I would like to point out I disagree with much of Ackerman’s work apart from the actual extraction of Mercury).

Evidence: as we speak, the earth is even today still being bombarded by tons of iron micrometeorites. Believed to have existed from the birth of the Solar System – WRONG! This stuff is the remnants of the genesis of Mercury only a few thousand years ago!

Also, earth’s core favours the eastern hemisphere. In other words the core is further over to the east than the west. This has prompted scientists to propose that the core is actually migrating east. I think they are completely wrong on this count and what we are looking here is the aftermath of when Mars once locked into orbit above the Himalayas in the east. We have the larger magnet of earth pulling on the smaller magnet of Mars and in doing so our core/magnet migrating somewhat towards to east. A natural sequence of events?

Lopsided Growth at the Earth’s Core

Egyptians and Mars, planets.
Mars’ ‘docking scar.’
An almost circular footprint which dominates the Trans Himalayas.

The image on the left shows an almost circular raised relief where Mars once orbited above the Trans Himalayas. From a two way planetary perspective we have a lopsided dumbbell with the north pole of Mars pointing towards earth, earth tilting over slightly to meet Mars (magnetic forces the driving force here). This being the reason why Mars’ northern hemisphere shows signs of having its top blown off in some catastrophic event – it did, during encounters with earth.

This was a periodic resonance lasting several hundred years before ultimately culminating in the extraction of Mars’ core. A twenty-thirty year epoch. This was the straw that broke the camel’s back and allowed the planets to settle down into their present orbits. Using the revised chronology of many scholars (inc. Velikovsky) this occurred during the 7/8th century BC (moving the Amarna period that is). Corroboratory evidence for a ‘gradual’ uplift of the sea floor which formed the Himalayas comes to us via a pole shift.

As Earth and Mars locked together the north pole shifted to the centre of Hudson Bay in Canada, giving us a new temporary equator dissecting right through the Himalayas. This can be easily confirmed/understood with a globe in hand. Hudson Bay is still rebounding suggesting it was once covered in a glaciers, further suggesting that the raising of the Himalayas was a relatively slow event. In the blink of a eye in geological terms but not, I might add, a sudden electrical discharge event.

Extraterrestrial Sand

As Mercury was extracted from Mars incalculable amounts of vaporised iron rich sand was also created, this condensed and fell to the earth as sand.

Extraterrestrial Sand Scar.

Mars spewed out oceans of iron rich sand forming the global sand scar (& rock debris) we see today stretching out from the Trans Himalayas right across to North Africa (it’s possible this particular sand was formed from iron, a TV space documentary mentioned this once – further research required here).

As Mars anchored above the Tibetan-Himalayan complex there was also an intermingling of atmospheres (again a natural sequence of events). Mars losing out as earth sucked countless tons of volatiles from Mars. This phenomena was observed by ancient cultures. Mesopotamian cultures (virtually next door) looked up and saw a cosmic ‘tree of life’ (the hanging gardens of Babylon, etc.) reaching up and out towards the gods – numerous times with a winged disk (Mars) above it. The image below captures this.

Herein, I believe lies the origin of the Christmas tree, the “Tree of Life.”

From the perspective of the ancient Egyptians (a little further around the globe), they in all probability did not observed the ‘tree of life’ but just the winged disk (logical?). If it was observed it probably took on the appearance of Tutankhamun’s (Mars) winged scarab. Tutankhamun“The Lordly Manifestation of Re.”

‘Gravity wave’ clothing explained.

Egyptian clothing.
Saturn’s Gravity Waves inspired Egyptian clothing.

The above NASA photo shows the effect of one of Saturn’s moons ‘gravitationally’ perturbing its rings. Compare this to the ‘see through’ pleated clothing worn by numerous Egyptian monarchs (above, below) and ordinary people in afterlife scenes.

An Ancient World in Chaos.
The pleated attire worn by the Egyptians.

I am proposing here that this ‘see through’ attire came about as a direct result of god king planets (and other bodies) perturbing Earths ring system (Hathor) of only 4,000 years ago – this was physically observed and represented in Egyptian art.

In other words, from a ground level point of view ancient cultures observed the sky monarchy through these transparent waves and accordingly carved, painted and dressed the monarchy in transparent attire – symbolism drawn from naked eye observations.

Note the pleated clothing, the celestial headdress, the planetary
red disk of Horus which is NOT THE SUN! The Winged Disk frames the scene above.

The so-called Aten used to be the solid iron core of Mars. It was sucked out through the Valles Marineris (enormous scar on Mars) sometime in the 7th century BC. And is solely responsible for an epoch in Egyptian history know to us as the Amarna Period.

The Egyptians do not suddenly up and decide to rename the sun (Ra) to the Aten, to suggest such a thing is totally ridiculous.

The ‘children’ touching and held by the monarchy (above image with Akhenaten and Nefertiti) are droplets or blobs of iron also sucked out during the extraction of the Mars iron core – much as you would expect really.

The unusual Aten/Mercury incomplete ‘sunrays’ are not unusual at all; they represent exactly what was seen as the lopsided energy from Mercury/Aten ‘shone’ on the astral divine royal figures. It is the very reason why the worship of the Aten had to go through the royal family.

The distorted shape of the above figures (including the kids) is again drawn from naked eye observations of the gravitationally distorted Mars/Akhenaten and Venus/Nefertiti and the blobs of iron.

Please note; Tutankhamun is never shown or mentioned in any sacred scenes or inscriptions during the reign of Akhenaten his erroneously presumed father – this is because they were one and the same, both names given to MARS! The same would go for Amenhotep III and Akhenaten (Amenhotep IV) they are never shown together!
