Iapetus: The Original Death StarPosted: May 25, 2011
Most of us will be familiar with the Death Star from the Star Wars movies by George Lucas.
The Death Star is depicted as moon-sized space station. It is also a devastating weapon, capable of destroying an entire planet by firing a single destructive beam. The Death Star has several distinctive characteristics. The main two features are the ridge that traces along the equator of the mass, which circumscribes the entire object. And then, just above the ridge, a hole or indentation that appears in the top half.
A little homework will tell you that we maybe shouldn’t be too quick to give Lucas credit for all of his ‘creations’. There are multiple examples of elements within the popular series which actually turn out to have a history elsewhere.
One obvious example would be the concept of the Jedi – known in ancient Egypt as the ‘Djedi’ – a priesthood of sorcerers and magicians whose task it was to protect the Pharaoh. (Persia had the ‘Narts’, which were the protectors of enlightened priest kings and guardians of a so-called Holy Grail called the Nartmongue).
Another example is Yoda whose image is lifted right out of masonic reference works from ‘Yota’, a wise and somewhat stumpy, pointy-eared entity said to have been channeled by the Luciferian brotherhood.
The point being that it can be said (and has been said) that there is much more to the Star Wars narrative than meets the eye and, suffice to say, the real story did not take place in a galaxy far, far away.
Having established a little of this rampant ‘borrowing’ Lucas has done to set up his stall, we might well ask the question – where did the concept of the Death Star come from?
Meet Iapetus, one of Saturn’s many moons:
Iapetus is widely regarded by many of the researchers who have seriously investigated this anomalous object as an artificial construct, not least because of its ridge, or wall.
It is important to point out that this feature displays unnatural rectilinear geometry. A major proponent of this theory is Richard C Hoagland (former Curator of Astronomy and space science at the Springfield Science Museum, Massachusetts and consultant to CBS News during the Apollo program).
There are also many other unnatural oddities presented by this moon, too many to go into now in fact. For now, let us just observe a rather large hole above the ridge/wall – just like Lucas’ Death Star.
So what does this mean? Is the Death Star really based on Iapetus? Is George Lucas privy to some kind of ancient knowledge as to the purpose that this alleged artificial moon of Saturn once served?
Well, that’s for you to decide.
In the meantime, here’s another Saturnian moon, called Mimas:
This one lacks the dividing line of Iapetus but does boast a rather large indentation, very similar to that of Iapetus. Is that really a crater?
So, the real details which George Lucas has based so much of the content of his films on may not have taken place in a galaxy far, far away, but let us not doubt that any truths the story may be telling did indeed take place ‘a long time ago’. Maybe not quite as far back as, say, 2.8 billion years ago – but nevertheless a possible link can be found there.
Sitting in the museum of Klerksdorp, South Africa, hundreds of tiny metallic balls (known as the Transvaal Spheres) are displayed. These spheres have been found by South African miners during the last several decades. The spheres are of two types…
Sphere type 1: A hollow ball filled with a white spongy centre.
Sphere type 2: Solid, blue-tinged metal with white flecks.
Because of the shared characteristics of these spheres – of which there are many – it seems extremely unlikely that they were formed naturally. If nature had managed to somehow design and decorate them in such a way, then it would be the first and only case of such a thing occurring. At least, known to man.
But the alarming aspect to the story is that these objects date back to the Precambrian era – around 2.8 billion years ago.
Roelf Marx, curator of the Klerksdorp museum said:
“the spheres are a complete mystery. They look man-made, yet at the time in Earth’s history when they came to rest in this rock, no intelligent life existed. They’re nothing like I have ever seen before” (Jimison 1982).
Dr Michael A Cremo believes there is evidence suggesting that human, or human-like beings existed on the planet millions of years ago and has meticulously and expertly researched and documented these and many other ancient finds in his excellent book, Forbidden Archeology -co-authored by Richard L Thompson.
Could it be that Iapetus was not only the inspiration for the Death Star but also for whoever (or whatever) fashioned these ancient spheres?
Of course, this could all just be one big coincidence. The Devil In The Detail can’t pretend to have the answers. One thing’s for certain, however. We should never doubt that there is way more going on (and has gone on) than we are allowed to know about.
Mainstream science dogmatically refuses to admit that the official version of human history is incorrect, even in the face of a vast wealth of startling evidence, found all over the globe, suggesting otherwise.
All the evidence points in one direction; that there has been a forgotten, lost – or perhaps deliberately concealed episode in the story of human history.
