Apokalypsis (ἀποκάλυψις) is an ancient Greek word composed of apo- meaning open, release, reveal, and kalyptwin, meaning cover, hide, shield.  Simply put, apocalyse means revelation, the revealing of something.

As Claudius puts it in the theme of Rovert Graves' brilliant "I, Claudius," "Let all the poisons which lurk in the mud hatch out."

To really grasp what is going on in the world right now, we have to get some background information.  The problem is that proper understanding has been purposely obfuscated so prevent us from seeing truth.  ASs Joseph Farrell frequently notes, whoever controls the interpretation of prophesy, controls its fulfillment.

We must start with the Great Year.  The Great Year is divided up into Great Months.  The Great Year of the Precession lasts roughly 26,000 years, with each Great Month being about 2,166 years.  The Great Year is measured by the precession of the March equinox, visualized as a point over the equator's zenith at midnight, from right to left through the zodiac, which is roughly 1 degree per 72 (human) years.  This happens in reverse order of the zodiac from the order we use for say, astrology.  In other words, Leo, Cancer, Taurus, Aries, Pisces, Aquarius, etc..  According to occult traditions, each change in the Great Month is accompanied by great social and cultural upheaval in human history, as the energiy bathing us from the Universe changes with the positions of the background stars.

Now recall various Biblical events, along with some of the greatest and most enigmatic stonework on the planet.

If we mark the Great Sphynx in Egypt as a monument to the Age of Leo (it is a lion and it faces the helical rising of Leo every year in August), then by counting Great Months, we arrive at an age for the statue of about 10,000 years to 12,000 years.  This correlates with some modern academic thinking, as well as the age of places like Gobekli Tepe, and more or less the end of the last Ice Age and perhaps the Great Flood of the Younger Dryass period.

The next story that lines up is the Golden Calf, on which Moses broke the tablets and caused a massive earthquake that swallowed the statue and a great many people.  Taurus?

Along comes a Great Messiah, widely known as the Lamb of God, who was sacrificed more or less 2,000 years ago.  Aries?

The Lamb's followers were called Fishers of Men, and they created a cult symbolized by a fish, and led by a man who wears a fishhead hat.  Pisces?

Then we have this from Luke 22:10-11:

"He replied, “As you enter the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the house that he enters, and say to the owner of that house, 'The Teacher asks: Where is the guest room, where I may eat the Passover with My disciples?"

 So, the Lamb sends the Fish to find the Man with a Jar of Water.  Aquarius?

Let's build a narrative with this information.

About 14,000-12,000 years ago, there was a great civilization on Earth that built magnificent stone structures all over the planet, such as Giza and Gobekli Tepe.  This roughly corresponds with Plato's reckoning that Atlantis existed 9,000 years before his time, or roughly 11,300 years ago.  The Age of Leo came to a cataclysmic end with the Younger Dryass period, and led to the Age of Cancer, which must have been a dark age, since we don't seem to have any monumental architecure celebrating crabs.  This led to another great civilization in the Age of Taurus, which was devastated by earthquakes (golden calf).  That led to the Age of Aries, which was characterized by a quiet pastoral period in history where everyone just went about his or her business.  Until the Lamb was slaughtered and the Age of Pisces was ushered in, with renewed global culture and civilization and everyone coming together like schools of fish.

Could it be that the Age of Aquarius is now beginnning and the information from the past is trying to send us a message on how to prepare?  Are we to follow the man with the jar of water to a place of safety, where we can celebrate having avoided some great disaster?

Could this be the Revelation, the ἀποκάλυψις, for which we have been waiting for centuries?

It might be that everything we are seeing now represents the Fish Heads (literally and figuratively) fighting to retain their privileged positions that they have enjoyed for so long.  After 2,000 years, they have grown accustomed to their positions at the head and the willingness of the masses to school behind them.  They are fighting with all they have to halt what they know is coming, and which cannot be avoided.

There are so many implications.  Were our calendars purposely recalculated to hide the arrival of this moment in time?  Were ancient prophesies - more like road maps - reinterpreted to hide their true meanings?  Is the revelation of all this hidden knowledge thf actual and literal meaning of ἀποκάλυψις?

What I do know is that the classical interpretation of the Apocalypse of John at Patmos was not a literal event.  Rather it was a symbolic description of one's inner journey to personal enlightenment.  Anyone who has undergone the true Awakening process will be able to read those pages and recognize immediately the pain and suffering one goes through as the illusion of the world falls apart, and the Truth of the Earth is revealed.

In the late 1700s and early 1800s, there was a concerted effort to change this interpretation into a physical scenario in which there were signs and wonders and mystical creatures doing battle across nations.  This distraction was designed to keep people from focusing on their inner journies, and being afraid of the feelings and visions that come with it.  Having your entire worldview torn to shreds and rebuilt in an entirely different way is terrifying without the guidance of those who have gone through before.

The true meaning of the Apocalypse is that, like jars of water, we no longer need to "school" around leaders or their institutions.  We are capable of containing our own water (knowledge) and carrying it with us.  We no longer need institutions to guide us, but are now free to be our own moral agents.  We no longer need kings to embody the sovereignty of the masses, we are each sovereigns in our own kingdoms.

If you are a king, what do you fear most? 

What we see all around us is the literal externalization of our inner journey.  We no long need central libraries, we have the wisdom of ages in our hands wherever we go.  We no longer need rulers, when we have internalized the real Law.  We no longer need churches, when we are each a moral agent.  We no longer need banks, when our wealth can be stored in our own digital vaults.

All of the institutions and organizations that have grown up over centuries to lead the masses of fish through the ocean of time are crumbling, when we have evolved the ability to climb out of the ocean and carry our water with us.  We are our own vessels.

It's terrifying, to be sure.  We are teenagers leaving home for the first time and suddenly all of our comfortable support structures are gone and we must learn to depend on our own wits and abilities.

The Age of Aquarius is upon us.
