“Their dominion and inhabitation extended from North-East and South-West Africa, across great Atlantis even unto the present North, South, and Central America and also Mexico and the Atlantis Islands; before the great earthquake, which caused the great Atlantic Ocean.” – Noble Drew Ali
The ancient North African/ Proto-Saharan region stores treasure of the Moor’s ancient past when that region of Africa was bountiful with paradise-like scenary, beautiful greenery and colorful plant life. The Atlas Mountains were surrounded by water as suggested by the name Atlas. The “Atl” signifies water in ancient languages (i.e. Nahuatl) which gave rise to bodies of water and place names like Atlantis, Atlan, Atlanti and Atlantic. In connection with what is now called the Saharan Desert, we will find a great link with the ancient cultures that once governed that area and flourished as a high level of civilization.
The Sahara (“The Great Desert”) is the world’s largest hot desert and the world’s second largest desert after Antarctica covering over 3,500,000 square miles. It stretches from the Red Sea to the outer bounds of the Atlantic Ocean. The name originally derives from the original Tuareg (Moors) who are known indigenously as the “Imazighen” meaning the “Free Men”. The Taureg are also known as the Blue Men of the Sahara and are identified as the “Fremen” in the Dune novels and movies written by Frank Herbert.
The Sahara region has a rich history that veils the ancient technology and advance science possessed by the Moors of the days of old. The spiritual system that was developed by the people of this region was of Primordial Moorish influence. This is evidenced by scientific discoveries that were found around a former lake that existed in North Africa around 9000 to 10,000 years ago. This is further supported by facts that include other Saharan cultures that resemble the cultures of Khem, Nubia and ancient Sudan (Kush). During the olden period, two great bodies of water existed in this area. These aquatic bodies were known in ancient times as the Triton Sea and the Triconis Lake. The Triton Sea is documented in the book entitled, ” The Chotts of Tunis, Or, The Great Inland Sea of North Africa in Ancient Times.” The term Triton is associated with Poseidon, the Trident symbol and the planet Neptune which are all associated with the control and navigation of the sea and also with the esoteric symbology of the fish. Poseidon is identified with Neptune and represents the personification of Atlantis. In mythical lore Neptune was called the grandson of Uranus and became a symbol of Atlantean Spirituality. Astrologically, Neptune is associated with water signs, the feminine side of nature and the Moon. Triton, the son of Poseidon, is represented as a man above the waist and a dolphin below the waist. This symbol was placed into the constellations as the sea-goat: Capricorn.
From a geological standpoint, the great and ancient Triton Sea was located in the now Libyan desert as early as 9000 B.C. The prehistoric appearance of a great lake in Libya has recently been supported by satellite images of the Eastern Desert which indicate that a lake was located in the Qattara depression of northwest Egypt. 10,000 years ago rain dense conditions existed in the Saharan region which led to the creation of numerous river beds now buried under sand along with other temple and pyramid structures. Due to the abundance of streams, rivers and lakes in the Primordial Saharan region, men who were knowledgeable about navigation and agriculture and that could harness the powers of water were considered Masters and great Scientists.
During this ancient time of Primordial Sahara, these Super Scientists were the grand Asiatic fathers and mothers of Continental Africa, the Americas, Ancient India, and the middle eastern fertile crescent region inhabited by the Phoenicians, Assyrians and the Sumerians. Today we call this Primordial Saharan civilization the “Fertile African Crescent”, because the highland regions formed a crescent shape across the Saharan region of middle Africa. These ancient masters were a seafaring nation and have been called the Atlantides or Altean Serpents of Wisdom. It has been stated that the primordial Moors of Ancient North Africa traded and traveled the great Atlantic when North Africa contained within its borders a large body of water known as the Triton Sea. The Triton Sea is referenced in “The Histories” of Herodotus, this great sea was bordered on the West by the Atlas Mountains and populated by a number of small islands. It has also been noted by occultists that the Moors inhabited several islands and created civilizations on these islands. One particular island was chosen to serve as a base for a mystery university because its three centrally located mountains formed a trident, a classic Moorish symbol which again is hidden in Greek mythology and veiled in stories about Poseidon, his son Atlas and the planet Neptune.
The ancient Moors also established ports in other parts of North Africa, but after catastrophic events, the Triton Sea was drained. The Moors later established settlements in various parts of North Africa including the Ahaggar Mountain range of Southern Algeria and the North African lowlands. Today, these regions of the Atlas Mountains and the Ahaggar Mountains contain hidden caverns with treasures of the Atlantean Civilization which have been confirmed and written about by European authors, i.e. L. Taylor Hansen in the book “The Ancient Atlantic.” The ancient Moors further established colonies in and around the present day Tyrrhenian Sea. These people of this region would be later known as the Phoenicians who settled in a region called Canaan as evidenced in the Armana letters which were found in Egypt. Noble Drew Ali reminds us of this connection by first establishing the old Canaanite Temple in New Jersey.
The people who lived during this time of High Civilization created a federated system which maintained equal rights and liberties among both women and men. Women created agriculture and men engineered civilization. The evidence of the (sub-conscious) agricultural knowledge can be seen in the braided hair styles (i.e. corn rows) and patterns on African cloth, all representing the science of agriculture. Never-the-less, the term “Ma” appears in the languages spoken by the descendants of Primordial Sahara which denote both “mother earth” and “natal land mass”. The female seafaring Moors were identified with the goddess entity Neith who is strongly associated with stories of Atlantis and also linked to the snake headed goddess Medusa who also is associated with Poseidon. Again, this leads to the planet Neptune, the Sea, the Deluge and the symbology of the fish.
The Primordial Saharans claimed descent from the Maa (Mu) Confederation or the Confederation of the Fish. The Maa Confederation included the Egyptians, Dravidians, Manding, Sumerians and Elamites which all later became known as Moors. In honor of the great ancestor: Maa, they worshipped a god called: Amun/ Amon. Amun being the deity representing the flowering life force which is hidden and established in the primordial ocean (waters) of consciousness. In honor of this great deity, the descendants of the Primordial Saharans used the term Ma, to denote greatness or highness, e.g., Manding ” Maga,” Dravidian “Ma” and Gara-Ma-nde (Garamates). Other tribes claimed direct descent from the great Maa, founder of the Confederation of the Fish. For example, the Manding call themselves Ma-nde: children of Ma, while the Sumerians were called Ma-Gar-ri (exalted God’s children).
However, the ancient Maa Confederation also finds itself intimately connected to the astrological cosmos as scientists of that time always remained in order and alignment with the times and the heavens. All ancient myths and allegories were created by Asiatics who dealt with the principalities of both Earth and the Cosmos. These Asiatics were highly spiritual and in-tune with forces that created their reality. Thus the creation of meta-physical science which would be veiled in spiritual text as Astro-Theology.
The Primordial Saharans shared place names and this is evidenced by discoveries made by Dr. Vamos-Toth Bator. Dr. Vamos-Toth Bator, calls these shared place names of the ancient civilization and root culture: Tamana. The term Tamana can be interpreted in the Elamite, Manding, Magyar and Dravidian languages as “Place of Strength”, “Stronghold” or “Original Settlement”. The term Tamana is found in over 24 countries and is one of over 1,000,000 place names Dr. Vamos-Toth has found which link Africa, Asia, and Europe. The term Tamana, was a popular place name with the Primordial Saharans, as they expanded out of the nucleus of the Saharan region. There also appears to be a connection with the various Primordial Saharans as their writing system was used by Dravidians in the Indus Valley, the Manding in the Western Sahara, and the Egyptians in the Eastern region of the ancient fertile African crescent: Sahara.
It has been noted that although the Dravidians, Manding and Sumerians lived in different environments and climates, they used the same terms to denote the earliest elements of civilization. These terms show little phonetic divergence. Moreover, these terms are mutually intelligible. This shows that the speakers of these languages came from a common ancestral language.
The early contact between the Dravidians, Manding and Sumerians in the ancient Saharan region led to great resemblances in the area of the cultural vocabulary. This is particularly evident in the affinity between culture terms referring to the Proto- civilization of the speakers of these languages. The Primordial Saharans were great sailors and navigators. They used celestial navigation to make long voyages. The Proto-Saharans also used boats called “kalam.” Many of the long distance voyages made by the Primordial Saharans were made in search of precious metals as they were excellent metal workers. These facts are veiled in Masonic lore about the grand metal workers that developed masonry and the mystery of Tubal-Cain and Pan. All linked to Atlantis and the age of the “Navigators.”
Such men were recognized as the great ancestors. For example in Sumeria and Egypt gods were described as “reed-boat navigators”. In Egypt some of these great deities associated with the “reed boats,” “Ship of the North” or the “Ark of Life” included Thoth, Osiris and the great mother Typhon (the celestial waters of the Abyss, the mother of the Beginnings, the Water Horse, the Zodiac). This is supported by both Dravidian and Egyptian traditions and is seen in the symbology on ceiling of the temple of Denderah. In ancient Egyptian tradition Ptah, came from the Sahara below Egypt in Kush. He found Egypt inundated , so he performed great works of dyking and land reclamation so the land was more habitable. The first avatar, Tirumal of the Dravidians is regarded as a fish. Tirumal,is the same as Vishnu of Sanskrit scripture, another name for this god is Mayan and Mal. According to references in the Bhagavata Purana, a fish who is identified with the first sage of Dravidian lore. Moreover, it is interesting to note that the sages of the Dravidians were also called Vellalar “lords of the flood.” These sages earned these titles because of their skill in navigating the floods and in storing water for agricultural purposes. Hence the association to the story of Noah, a great navigator who is also identified as a fish in many Moorish related cultures. It has also been noted in esoteric text that the story of Noah represented the survival of a race from Atlantis and their re-population in Africa and the Americas.
Early spiritual symbols of the Primordial Saharans included a serpent and the sun. In Egypt and Kush, both Amon and Kush were depicted as heavy melanated olive toned figures. The Kushites also worshipped a “lord of the mountains”, which is analogous to Murugan, a Dravidian god in India. In India, Khrisna, Mal ,Vishnu, and Kali were usually depicted as dark olive toned deities. In Egypt, these deities were pictured together in an Ark, the Ark of Sothis or the Ark of Life.
Many of the Primordial Saharan beliefs originated during the wet African Aqualithic period. As a result their great ancestors whom they referred to as “Fish” or “reed-boat navigators”, Maa became the common terminology for these ancient and wise men and women. In the languages of the Manding, Maa is used to refer to the ancient inhabitants of the African continent (Maars), and the invisible spirit who inhabits the water courses. Hence the development of the word Maar or Moor in relation to navigation. The Ancient inhabitants of the fertile crescent deeply honored the great Maa.
The Primordial inhabitants of the fertile crescent used the ox with the sun disc between the horns as the symbol of their God, prior to it being associated with Hathor. This god, again, represented Amon of the Dravidians, Egyptians and Manding speaking people. This use of a ram god, with different names among the various groups indicate that the ancient Moors worshipped the same religion: the all encompassing hidden deity; however, outwardly represented by the solar disk (MHK 35:2). For example among the Dogon of West Africa, the god Amma is a ram. In Yoruba Amon, means concealed the same as in Egyptian.”
Before the Egyptians conquered Greece the worship of Amon had already been established in the region. It was the Garamante Manding speaking tribe, another group of Moors, who took Amon worship to Greece. Moreover the Manding concept of N’ama as a dynamic spirit among the other Mande tribes point to an earlier worship of Amon, before the Mande re-organized their spiritual system under Islam. The Bambara call their ancestral god Nia, this has affinity to the Greek term for the Libyan god called Neith. The goddess Neith or Athene was known by many names. According to Greek traditions the father of Athene or Neith was Poseidon.
The identification of Poseidon, with a boat (i.e., a boat on the ocean is like a mountain on the sea) suggest that Poseidon, is another name for the Fish, that showed Maa the boat that saved mankind from the ancient great flood. Obviously, a connection with the biblical deluge and the grand navigator Noah. The identification of the trident (which also has affinity to the serekh sign of kingship in Egypt and Ta-Seti), and the Fish emblem of the Pandyan Kings show the spread of the Maa worship from Middle Africa to India. The agreement of Poseidon’s name Potidan with Pandyan suggest that this entity was popular among the Dravidians.
The Dravidians are the descendants of the Harappan people. In the neither world of the Harappans there was a place called “lapis luzuli mountains”.The Dravidian speakers founded the Harappan civilization and wrote the Indus Valley seals. The miners from the Indus Valley controlled the lazurite ores of Badakhshan and Afghanistan. The Dravidians exported these metals to Mesopotamia. Lapis lazuli is found in metamorphic limestone or dolomite. Lapis lazuli was a central factor in Dravidian colonization of Central Asia.
The possible ancient exile of people from Sumer to Proto-Dravidian sites would explain the genetic unity of the Sumerian and Dravidian languages. Interestingly, the Sumerians called themselves proudly sag-gigga”the dark headed people”. In Tamil gig, means dark(ness). This points to analogy between Sumerian and Dravidian. During the reign of King Asoka, of India the Dravidians were called Kalinka, which appears to be an evolute of Sumerian (sag) gigga . The Sumerians obtained lapis lazuli from the Harappo-Dravidians.The identification of Poseidon, with a “wooden mountain” or boat(i.e., a boat on the ocean is like a mountain on the sea) suggest that Poseidon was aslo popular among the Proto-Dravidians. The identification of the Fish, with Maa and Manu, suggest that while the Fish or Poseidon was the inventor of boats, Maa or Manu built dams that controlled the water levels in areas settled by the fertile crescent inhabitants where they cultivated their crops. It is interesting to note that when Eudoxus of Cyzicus visited the coastal regions of Kush, he called this area Posidonius. This is interesting because the ancient people of Abyssinia and Somalia, were said to be Icthyophagi, who worshipped the god Poseidon a more ancient form of an ancient people and not a single person of deity. Poseidon represents the Atlantean Moors that survived each paradigm shift and deluge to create and re-engineer civilization.
The mountains in the Saharan regions, called Atlas Mountains, are located on the northern edge of Africa. The “Daughters” of Atlas include the Hesperides, Atlantides, Atlantis, etc. This surely indicates where the Atlas family (inc. Atlantis) were regarded as being located, namely to the west of the Pillars/Straits in the ocean sharing its name with Atlas, Atlantes, Atlantis, Atlantides, etc.
Yet another set of “Daughters” are the Pleiades best known as a star-system. As they appear on the horizon, they are taken to indicate the start of the ploughing season for farmers, the start of the sailing season for sailors, the start of the fishing season for fishermen, etc. Pleiades coming from Greek pleien (Sailing-stars) is to be put alongside the consistently western linkage given to the Atlas “family” seen to include the Pleiades. Underlining all this, is the actual location of Mount Atlas. However, cosmologically, Pleiades represent the conceptive powers of the cosmos in embryonic receptivity to the birth of light. Moreover, Merope, the lost Pleiad is connected to the mortal man symbolizing the conceptiveness of the cosmos made manifest on Earth. The seven stars of Pleiades, also associates with the Dravidian seven Rishis, is sometimes known as the “Commander of the Celestial Armies” who was astrologically the planet Mars, to whom they gave the name Karttikeya. Krittikas was the Sanskrit name for Pleiades, the daughters of Atlas.
The several traits seen right across north Africa from Egypt to Morocco/Mauritania are added to by forms of boats and ships both earthly and celestial. There is a type of reed-boat that is referred to by Eratosthenes as ocean-going in the Indian Ocean. He also informs us that this was the standard Nile-River type and it is usually as having barely changed from the days of the Egypt-to-Punt trade. It probably attaches to what Winters describes as a desert-wide half-man/half-fish deity called Maa. There is also the resemblance that many writers compare with that of the earliest images of the Ark of the Covenant. In reduced size, it is likely to be represented by west Magrebi reed-boats called almady itself later applied to almadias (canoes) by the Portuguese.
This indicates that Siva was the god of a people that had conquered the worshipers of Mal (as bullock and fish) and also Murugan (who was symbolized by the Tiger) the god of the mountains. Siva’s riding of the bullock, suggest defeat of the mother goddess (worshipers) and rise of a patriarchal clan system as a result of the many wars the Dravidians had to fight against the Indo-Europeans. Siva is also sometimes analogous to the fish god Maa or Mal. In South India, Siva is referred to as the “Great Fish”, and is represented by Fish signs.Throughout Tamilnadu tridents are found in association with Siva temples. Among the Dravidians the god of youth is called Ku-Mara. Kumara is said to be the son of Siva. This Kumara is analogous to the Egyptian god Horus, the son of Osiris.
The ancient Asiatic empire was vast and was a global civilization of high science and social development. This ancient race of Els and Beys (Priest Scientists and Governors) were an enlightened people often known as the Cyclopeans as related to the active Pineal gland providing clear vision and in some adepts hyper-dimensional vision. These celestial missionaries were known by many ancient cultures as the Elders, Merus, Murus, Aramus, Amaru Muru and Moors. The Polynesians have myths of an advance people they call Merus who possessed flying machines and who built pyramids throughout the Pacific. These are the great ancestors of Mu and Atlantis: the navigators of the celestial ship of the north and the empire of Al Khem-Muria.
