As Above, So Below
The Neo-platonists understood the meaning of fourteen statements contained in the Emerald Tablets of Thoth. Originally from the three thousand treatises of the Jabirian Corpus written by the Muslim alchemist and astronomer known as Jabir ibn Hayyan (AD c.721 – c. 815). The Corpus listed knowledge concerning music, cosmology, chemistry as well as the artificial generation of living creatures.
The second statement, as translated by Sir Issac Newton:
“That which is below is like that which is above & that which is above is like that which is below to do the miracles of one only thing.”
David Flynn writes:
The antediluvians ascribed the pre-Flood knowledge to the interaction of humans with the gods of legend, or the Watchers of Hebrew tradition: the knowledge from the heavenly Watchers was recorded on “tablets” or “pillars”. Flavius Josephus explained one pillar as the Great Pyramid of Giza. The legendary mystery contained in the famous “Tablets of Thoth” (or Hermes) was also related to the pillars of heaven and earth. The myths preserving the union of heaven and earth — when the gods and their heavenly knowledge fell to earth — refer to two pillars. Mention of knowledge inscribed in pillars is found in the legend of the earliest civilization, Atlantis:
Now the order of precedence among them and their mutual relations were regulated by the commands of Poseidon which the law had handed down. These were inscribed by the first kings on a pillar of orichalcum, which was situated in the middle of the island, at the temple of Poseidon, whither the kings were gathered together every fifth and every sixth year alternately, thus giving equal honour to the odd and to the even number. Plato’s Critias

The “as above so below” concept was manifest in the antediluvian world in a physical manner under the influence of the Watchers as illustrated in the Zodiac-Earth overlay:
In 1675 the British astronomer John Flamsteed, first Astronomer Royal to King Charles, directed the construction of the royal observatory of Greenwich built for the sole purpose of determining longitude for the earth for the kingdom of Britain. From the Greenwich observatory, the sun and stars were cataloged according to the exact time they passed overhead for every day of the year. It has long been known that the most efficient star with which to determine latitude is the brightest, Sirius.
Here, the ancient knowledge of time, space and earth’s connection to the heavens is esoterically displayed. Each day, at 12.55, the time ball rises half way up its mast. At 12.58 it rises all the way to the top. At 13.00 exactly, the ball falls.
Time is fixed to the Earth at the Observatory, “regressing” to the west and “increasing” to the east. The Observatory was “anchored” beneath the celestial sphere at the constellation of the dog or wolf, Canis Major which rests upon Gemini, the twins, corresponding to the area on earth below at the earth’s prime meridian.
The Royal Observatory records the passing of the star Sirius by dropping a bright orange ball from the apex of a tower on the Flamsteed House every day at 13:00 hours at the spot on earth designated as the Prime Meridian.
The constellations Gemini and Canis Major with the brightest star Sirius above (or below depending on viewing orientation) are anchored at the Royal Observatory and the Flamsteed Ball. The prime, key, meridian, highest sun, or point of highest development or fullest alchemic power is always the star Sirius between the twins.
The Wolf Star, Sirius is directly linked to Egyptian Thoth, the Greek Hermes or the Roman god Mercury. The binary system also represents Isis and Osiris together as “one.” Even the Pawnee tribe of North America, and others, refers to Sirius as the “Wolf Star.”
In October 1884 under the instruction of the US President Chester Arthur, delegates from 25 nations met in Washington, D.C., for the International Meridian Conference. There they selected the position of the “prime meridian” to pass through Greenwich, England. Before the establishment of a common meridian, most maritime countries established their own prime meridian, usually passing through the country in question.
Using the illuminated placement of the prime meridian to orient the constellations anchored on the star Sirius, further geographic features mirror the overhead stars.

More on the meaning and importance of Sirius, “The dog Star” from David Flynn:
The Romans called the Canaanites in Latin Cananaei, or Canaorum. These words are related etymologically to the Latin word for female dog “Canarius”. The rite called by the mystery schools the canarium (sacrificium) was a sacrifice of a russet-red female dog (at the time of the heat wave, for the goods of the ground). The Latin adjective canîculâris meant “pertaining to the Dog Star”: the time referred to as the “dog days” was related to the rising of Isis’s star canicula, that is, Sirius. These Latin words trace their origin to the Greek kuna or kunas meaning “the dog-star”, called by Homer, “the hound of Orion”. “Kuna” is Greek for “watchdog” and significantly “a guardian of the servants, agents or watchers of the gods”. The etymology of the Latin word for “dog” reveals its origin off the coast of Sidonia, among the rebuilt cities of Canaan after the Flood. The brightest star in the celestial sphere was called Canicula, the dog-star, commemorating the gift of the knowledge of the heavens given to the Sidonian Canaanites by the Nephilim, offspring of the Watchers…
The proper alignment of the heavens with the earth yields the truth behind the quintessential foundation myth of a city or civilization. After the twins Romulus and Remus were saved from the Tiber River by the she wolf (Sirius), they were fed on her milk (Milky Way). Then the twins were adopted by the shepherd Faustes. In the celestial hemisphere directly above Gemini in the zodiac is the constellation Auriga, “the shepherd”. The sons of Mars, Romulus and Remus, were said to have been born of the queen Rhea Silva from a city in the north called Alba Longa or “White and Long”. The name Rhea means “to flow”, from the Greek rheo “stream”. Similarly the walls of the city Thebes in Greece were built by the Amphisian twins, whose name means “Whiteness”. This mythical repetition represents a major feature found among the constellations of Gemini, Canis Major, Orion and Taurus, the long white Milky Way.
The twins of Gemini, whose Astrological glyph is two pillars II, were the inspiration for not only the foundation myths of Rome and Thebes, but also for Atlantis. Atlantis was ruled by seven sets of twins, the most famous king being the son of Poseidon, Atlas. The Atlas Mountains in Algeria lay directly under Sirius and Gemini. Atlas, it was said, held up the pillars where heaven and earth connected. According to Herodotus, the Libyans living around the Atlas Mountains professed to know the measurements of the earth:
These mountains are very high and were believed to touch heaven, but were altogether inaccessible because of the density of trees and [they] call this mountain “the Pillar of Heaven”; and they themselves take their name from it, being called Atlantes.
In myth and accounts of the mystery schools, there has been preserved a tradition of “twin” pillars. Intriguingly, the passage above is the clue to the identity of the two pillars of legend. Two pillars were “built” by the pre-Flood civilizations so that the knowledge of heaven coming down to earth would survive. Josephus said that the remaining pillar in Siriac would attest to the fact that there was another pillar. The one Pillar that survived the Flood, according to legend, was the Great Pyramid of Giza. The Great Pyramid was the counterpart on the earth of Isis’s consort Osiris, a Pillar that extended from Giza towards the constellation Orion in the heavens. The other “Pillar of Heaven” was located on the Prime Meridian, as it extended to heaven anchored at its counterpart, Sirius.
Cydonia, The Secret Chronicles of Mars. pp. 102-103, 119-120
The constellations anchored over the Earth at the Prime Meridian correlating with Sirius mirror at least five topographical features over portions of Western and Eastern Europe, as well as North Africa.
- The Constellation of Taurus hovers over the Taurus mountain of Turkey.
- Orion lies over Egypt with the three belt stars mirrored in the Pyramids of Giza.
- The pillars separating heaven and earth are represented by Gemini at the Prime Meridian with the Atlas Mountains below in Morocco and Algeria.
Yet to this day there is still one glaring omission. Where is the heaven-earth correlation with the most important constellation of all according to the Neo-Platonists – Sirius?
Propounded by a YouTube channel called Bright Insight, a new theory, which fits Plato’s description nicely, suggests Atlantis has been hiding in the Sahara all along.
Located in Mauritania (Northwest Africa), about 250 miles inland from the Atlantic Ocean, the Richat structure is more known as the Eye of the Sahara or the Eye of Africa.
The Eye of the Sahara is a prominent circular geological structure that, at 30 miles across, is so huge that NASA astronauts used it as a landmark. From the ground, it’s hard to discern, but, thanks to satellite imagery of the Gemini 4 first in 1965, then other space missions, we finally got a comprehensive view of this giant bulls-eye.

Using the Stellarium Astronomy software, I noticed that the angular distance varied between Sirius (represented by the Eye of Africa) and the star “Mintaka” in Orion’s belt (which correlates with the great pyramid)
The Great Pyramid and the Eye of Africa are separated by 16.45 degrees latitude. Although Sirius and Mintaka are nearly the same angular distance from each other now, I wondered how the distance might change going far back in time. The time where the stars most closely mimicked the angular distance between the Great Pyramid and the eye of Africa proved to be approximately 13300 years ago.
Finally, the ancient Greeks knew about a people, living far to the west, who were the “dog-headed ones”, who worshipped the Egyptian dog-headed god, Anubis. The Canary Islands happen to lie under the constellation Canis Minor.
