A Duncan-Enzmann Timeline 
Bølling II, 12,000 to 11,750 BC around the Rhone-Rhine-Danube Riverway

The Jewish Shekinah is a Venus and Mercury conjunction (which means the planets appear very close to each other) occurring about every 480 years. The length of time and effort it took to keep excellent records is eloquently described by Knight and Lomas in Uriel’s Machine, summarized here, and integrated into a timeline of related events.  
Evident in prehistoric records are events such as the eight- year Venus clock cycle, and its forty-year sequence. By 3100 BC, the cycle of 480 years that comprise a Venus and Mercury conjunction cycle was known; 1,920 years cover four Venus and Mercury conjunctions; four conjunctions are needed for accurate measurement of the cycle. In 967 BC, Solomon’s temple, incorporating the Venus and Mercury 480 year cycle, was completed. By 1900 BC Abraham, and then 1450 BC Moses and his Exodus followers knew of the 480 year cycle. 

In 5120 BC observations were made at Goseck observatory, Germany, in its earliest stages. By 3200 BC, Bryn Celli Ddu and Newgrange observatories were in full operation, both brilliantly and carefully constructed for observing Venus, both built with a long history of about 1,920 years of observation behind them, a minimum of three 480 year cycles equaling 1,440 years. This dates early observations to between ca. 5120 and 4600 BC, suggesting developments in Ireland’s Boyne Valley, as earlier observatories preceded the magnificent Newgrange structure.

The Next Giant Leap

Jay R Snyder

1. Secrets

Recent discoveries have uncovered evidence of lost Homo Sapiens-Sapiens civilizations that were kept secret for centuries. Thousands of archaeological finds throughout Europe pieced together reveal the use of intricate geometry and advanced sciences by people previously described as merely hunter-gatherers. Ice-age languages pre-dating Sumerian cuneiform by thousands of years trace steady progress of astronomical knowledge and applications. Ancient scientific symbols exhibit understanding of physics, chemistry, geography, mathematics and geometry, and pre-date the Greek masters; this proves that we have been highly-developed, introspective problem solvers for longer than we imagined. A vast network of public utilities for surviving the Ice  Ages were improved on by later cultures thriving in warmer climates; all indicate a never-ending worldwide human interest in, and constant evaluation of, the heavens. Navigational cartography and symbol migrations indicate world ocean voyages in distant ages past. Cyclopean masonry and building skills at places such as Baalbek, Lebanon existed tens of thousands of years ago and cannot be replicated by today's engineers or machinery. The world wonders at how ancient surveyors measured their architecture and observatories, calculated latitudes of the Earth creating the divisions of time, and mapped the celestial sphere. Yet, as by example, the very same sun, moon, planets and stars remain a consistent benchmark for us today.

2. Building upon a Foundation

Sufficient are the worries of the day, but our understanding of today relies upon our understanding what has come before. Symbols and languages in use today are built on ancient common ancestry. The more we learn from our own history, the more we avoid repeating disasters from our past, and the better we are able to build our future upon the discoveries and knowledge which came before. Men and women like us prepared the world for the next generation; we now must realize we have been improving our utilities over the course of a Great Year (26,000 solar years). For this very reason  we recorded the migrations of tetra-fauna onto cave walls, inscribed our knowledge medicines for healing onto stone, bone, and ivory, and related seasons of life to the ecliptic. Great surveyors and masons of history used the stars and planets to measure time and place. Their discoveries are the foundation for the unlimited frontiers of human development.

3. Heritage of Providence

If necessity is the mother of invention, providence must therefore be its father. The ethics of 'women and children first' have been our companion all the way; there is no doubt that love has also. Childbirth and childcare remain constants as we continue around the Sun. Industries such as textiles, healthcare, education, architecture, and trade have always been necessary. Daily food, shelter, and clothing perpetually charge us with temperance, fortitude, prudence, and justice. The needs of  mothers and newborns motivate vast improvements in utilities for life on Earth, and these acts of charity require hard labor. Earliest records tell stories of survival: how women provide language and textiles for their charges, as men battle the elements for their clan's survival. These are the foundations of existence that give meaning and purpose to the craft of building our world. Our human race survived Ice Ages, comet strikes, volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, and droughts - any climate nature dishes out. That we are here is testimony to this fact.

4. Constructive Achievement

However, in addition to the rages of natural disasters, wars kill millions of our human race. New technologies have created machines of mutually-assured destruction, and our fear of their power deters us from repeating their use. The last World War ended when we shocked ourselves by using atomic power against our world. Japan has equated the power and fear of their latest natural disaster with that of what they remember from August 9, 1945. Have we finally ensured our demise after a Great Year of scientific achievement, or do we care enough to hope for an alternative ending? Atomic power should be feared as a weapon of mass destruction, but like a stone hammer, its power can be channeled and used for constructive achievement. Electricity and fossil fuel powered our engines last century, but what will power us further in this next procession of the equinoxes?  

5. The Next Giant Leap

We stand in awesome wonder on the shore and stare up into the greatest ocean we have ever seen. Ancient symbols illustrate our history of it, we have built our temples as allegories to it, we have measured our time and world by it, and we have planned our survival around it. We have the maps and formulas to explore its widths, its depths, and its heights. We have understood the reasoning and problem-solving necessary to choose a direction, chart our course, and explore it. Yes, we now have the engineering and technology to build the ultimate machine, to build and operate the ultimate engine, powered by an unlimited fuel supply, to survey this ocean in no-time. And yet, a generation of pioneers is watching their lives pass before the advantage they have provided is realized. We stand at the threshold of the next "small step for Man" enabled for our next "giant leap for Mankind"- the ultimate human endeavor. Will we build upon the advantage we've been given? With knowledge comes responsibility, and our example to follow is our heritage of providence.

Jay Snyder, publisher White Knight Studio, compiled and editied Duncan-Enzmann's translations of Ice Age inscriptions, released spring 2013. Ice Age Language: Translations, Grammar, Vocabulary is the first volume of the Enzmann Archive to be published. Duncan-Enzmann's raw translations can be seen at

Jay says: "Dr. Robert Duncan-Enzmann's translations of Magdalenian inscriptions from 12,500 BC have increased our historic record forever and provided invaluable information about our ancestors. Inscribed mostly by women, and predominantly about making textiles and child care, the stories which they tell are drama at its best."

Why Didn't We Go?

Echo Lance Starship by Doc E

Excerpt from the Conference on the Total Environment and the Future of Civilization
(Planetology and Space Mission Planning Series; see Enzmann Starship)

First Seminar:
Cornucopia of Space
Mankind’s relationship with the total environment of Earth and Space extends into antiquity an estimated 40,000 years! What is popularly known as the “Age of Space” is only the result of this investment - over 40 millennia of historical association with the heavens which has literally led to all we know – agriculture, cities, commerce, and the arts, culminating now with the last and grandest stage in this relationship: Exploration of the Universe, first hand. 
This development, recent though it is, has seen vast networks rise: communication, weather, and navigation satellites to serve a hundred million people of the Earth, coupled with celestial survey of its limited resources, just begun. Future children of the world will see this pyramid of systems greatly strengthened to include power generation from the sun, and seismic networks placed on other planets to act as aids to earthquake warning and eventual prevention.  
And some day, to save this “good green Earth,” men will turn increasingly to the use, through manufacturing in Space, of the limitless resources of the sun – treasure-troves of minerals, chemicals, and metals orbiting one hundred million miles beyond the biosphere, and hence expendable. The “mother lode” beyond men’s wildest dreams, it is the means of silencing forever all those who state that man must stay confined in body and mind to just one world.
Acceptance of his gift, the planetary system of his sun, will ready Man to dare the greatest human adventure of them all: The ultimate of voyages Beyond Apollo, the fascinating journey to the stars!
Consider what is being said. It is extraordinary, and quite true. Now consider that this was written in 1972. What has happened? Why have we not pursued this penultimate opportunity? Many dream of exploring the heavens, the stars beckoning them, pulling their hearts upward. They have been silenced.

For tens of thousands of years we have watched the stars, recording the patterns of their movements. Time was divided by measuring these movements. Days of the week were named 5000 BC. Seven thousand years later, we have yet to break free. And it is not because we did not know how. It is because some who were of the opinion that we should not, prevailed.

Dollie calendric, 38,000 BC
This is an ancient Lunar Calendar from Vogelherd cave, Germany.  I mean, really ancient. 38,000 BC. It looks like a dolly, because it was a child’s doll – and a thread winder (to keep the roved thread from kinking). It was also a teaching tool for time of day, lunar phase, seasons, plants, and animals. While winding mommy’s thread, the child learned how to tell time by the stars and sun, what seasons were and when, and lunar cycles. Our ancestors taught their very young children astronomy; they knew the movement of the heavens cradled their very lives, and thought it important to gain as much knowledge as possible. What has happened? Do kids today know how to find north without a computer or compass?

This is a star chart from Ach Valley cave, Germany, ca. 32,000 BC. It is a record of meticulous observations over a long period of time, preserved in stone for future generations. Are we as concerned?

In Russia, the USA, and Cuba, meteorites have caused damage and injury. A comet has just passed by us, quite close. Our ancestors knew of the global disaster caused by comet impact, and built a network of megalithic observatories like Gobekli Tepe (Turkey) to study the sky, to learn what was always there, how it moved, where it went, what was coming, and then, what was out of place. Watchers were vigilant. Are we?

All this knowledge has accumulated in our history. Since then, we have found thousands of habitable Earth-like places to go. Our ancestors were focused on the survival of the human race. If we were, we would be prepared to colonize other worlds. They lived through unimaginable circumstances during the Ice Ages – months of cold with 50 below 0 temps, roaring winds, and ice. Everywhere. Then it warmed up – during the Atlantic Grand Climate Optimum, 5900 – 3750 BC. We made wonderful progress and sailed the oceans. The ice caps melted away and we circumnavigated the globe. We measured it. We could tell time to the split second by observing Venus – the Earth set their clocks by Venus until the 1970’s. Only atomic clocks are more accurate.

Then it all stopped; we were told the Earth was flat, at the center, and the sun and planets revolved around it. WHY? We knew better. Millennia ago our ancestors observed a curved shadow on the moon, and knew the Earth was round. Why were we lied to?

Our understanding of the past is the foundation for our perception of the present. And our vision for the future is built on our knowledge of today. Want a better future? Learn real history. If you want to control the future, change the past. This is why information is suppressed, deconstructed, and manipulated. Think. Always think. Don’t just listen and believe. Ask who, what, when, where, why, and how.

For decades I have worked with Doc E tracing the origin of symbols back tens of thousands of years. This has shaped a world view quite different from where I began. What our ancestors were capable of laid a solid foundation for us, and we have not built upon it. We have been told they were primitive, uncivilized, and brutish. These are all lies. They lived in houses, loved their children, created textiles, hunted and fished, and survived. They wrote it all down in stone with pictures, and taught it to their children. We are now publishing Duncan-Enzmann’s translations of Ice Age inscriptions from 12,500 BC, which tell us great stories of struggle and survival. They tell us of a civilization that lasted tens of thousands of years.

Our hope is that we can add knowledge of prehistory to the historic record, and gain a stronger understanding of who we are, where we have been, and then, where we can go.

The excerpt above from the Space Mission conference is only the first. Forty years ago we had a group of visionaries who could have done it. Why did we stop them? I know, who’s “we.” I certainly didn't.

The Fairy Tales, Once Upon a Time Lessons, First Book

NEW From Symbologist Michelle Snyder: 

Stories are part of childhood. They help us grow, build our imagination, instill a sense of wonder and hope, and help us understand right and wrong. Mothers have told stories to teach children culture and tradition, moral and ritual, and behavioral consequences ever since there were mothers. In the words of Fairy Queen Titania: "Is it not the mothers who bring up the babes, and give the growing child its earliest lesson to know right from wrong?" Fairy tales and folklore provide an entertaining, imaginative way of doing just that.

This is how education was done in our long-ago past – stories and pictures were used to teach industry, science, tradition, and morals. Yet, these wonder tales were told to children not just for the moral of the story, but to instill in them respect for and knowledge of history and traditions, and sometimes that history was far from pleasant. 

The Fairy Tales is a series of four short books presenting fifty-two wonder tales, one for each week of a year based on the phases of the moon: new, first quarter, full, and last quarter. There are thirteen classic fairy tales in each book; stories within a story. Once a week teacher Mother Merlina tells a tale to Fair One, who is taught important things with a fanciful story of character and struggle, fate and fortune, wisdom and foolery. The stories are archetypal in nature, and as such are universal in their import and message. Some are long, some are very short, but all are full of fanciful characters, magic, and wondrous events. 

 Once upon a time, in a great kingdom by the sea, there lived a young Fair One. In order that she might receive the best education and become a just and compassionate leader, the young princess sat with her tutor Mother Merlina once a week. Together they would spend hours by the window which looked out upon a vast ocean and its rolling waves, and the wise woman would tell our Fair One the most important stories of all time while the princess looked at a picture from the box with the silken wrap. In it were parchments of colorful pictures, one for each story, made long ago by an unknown artist. They were a treasure. Over the weeks to come many wonderful pictures would be enjoyed. Each quarter of a year, Mother Merlina would begin a series of stories to teach the young princess about the moon, as well as some very important lessons about life; perfect for reading to young children. Classic fairy tales in book one:

Aladdin and the Magic Lamp, Beauty & the Beast, The Blue Bird, Bremen Town Musicians, Cinderella, The Donkey, the Table, & the Stick, The Elves & the Shoemaker, The Emperor's New Clothes, The Fair One with the Golden Locks, The Fish & the Ring, The Fisherman & His Wife, The Frog Prince, The Golden Bird
