“Verily, verily, I say unto you, hereafter ye shall see heaven open and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.” 

So says John 1:51. So shows the 12th century Ladder of Divine Ascent  with monks, led by John Climacus, ascending the ladder to Jesus,  who waits in a hole in heaven at the top right. At the top is Climacus who receives the grace of Christ. Many inscriptions state that he has been “made one with God”.

Ladder of Divine Ascent (from St. Catherine’s Monastery, Sinai Peninsula, Egypt).


In this detail we see John Climacus is greeted by Jesus, who appears in a hole in heaven.

The image is extraordinary, but the scene it portrays is not an isolated incident in the Bible. It is a portrait of one of many times ‘the heavens opened’ and humans ascended in the ancient world. 

In the book of Genesis (28:12), angels ascended and descended Jacob’s Ladder connecting earth with heaven. Interestingly, the three belt stars of Orion are called Jacob’s Ladder. Originally, Orion was spelled Oarion, which comes from the Hebrew root word for “light” and it actually translates as “coming forth as light.” Others called him Ur-ana, which means “the light of heaven.”  

Did Jacob dream a ladder of light to Orion; one with beings coming and going from there (just as the ancient Egyptians described)? When speaking about the Son of Man as a ladder to heaven was John the Revelator speaking about the same ladder?

The title ‘Son of Man’ is one that Jesus frequently used to describe himself. This title also has links to Orion.

Jesus and his disciples went on to the villages around Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked them, ‘Who do people say that I am?’. They replied, ‘Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still other, one of the prophets’. (Note. These prophets, Elijah and John Baptist, are part of a lineage of ‘wild men’ and ‘strong men’ initiates, including Samson and Hercules, who knew the secrets of human transformation and ascension and were directly connected to Orion via their origins stories, myths or symbolism.)

‘But what about you?’ He asked. ‘Who do you say I am?’ Peter answered, ‘You are the Christ’ (Greek for the Anointed One).

Jesus warned them not to tell anyone about him. And he began to teach them concerning the Son of Man…’ (Mark 8:27-31).

Ah yes, the Son of Man. The ladder to Orion. The portal (stargate) to heaven. This is the great mystery that Christ came to teach. It is a focal point of Christian prophecy centered on the Second Coming and its attendant upgrade for the human race (as Paul proclaimed, ‘flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of heaven’, therefore scaling the ladder to heaven or Orion involves a preparatory transformation). 

If all goes as proclaimed in Christian ‘End Time’ prophecy, you…we… will see heaven open and Jesus waiting as angels ascend and descend (star walk) upon a ladder, tower or stairway to heaven called Son of Man. Christians will transform into Christ-like beings in order to meet Him in the air’.

Is this literal? 

I mean, we’ve all seen the stargate movies by now, right? We get how these shortcuts in space time work.  And it isn’t just in movies any more. Wormholes are ‘on’ as far as physics is concerned. It’s controversial, but in November 2022, physicists claimed they have created a wormhole using Google’s quantum computer, a device called Sycamore, and passed information through it.

Is this what John the Revelator had in mind?

Or, is the opening of a wormhole stretching from earth to Orion and called Son of Man a visionary and entheogenic-induced experience (as described in Revelation 10 – 14 when the rainbow angel / plasma being gives John a ‘little book’ to eat that tastes like honey)?


In Matthew 24, the writer refers to ‘the Sign of the Son of Man in heaven’. Matthew describes the tribulations that will occur during the birth of a new age, an age of Christ Consciousness. The tribulations begin with lightning:

For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth unto the west; 

so shall the coming of the Son of man be.

Then come the eagles (a symbol of beings who are one with the Sun).

For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together. 

Then comes the darkness.

Immediately after the tribulation of these days till the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars sell fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.

Finally, the sign of the Son of Man and the Son of Man appears.

And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven; and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

Mathew 24:27

Okay. So a (worm)hole opens in heaven. A ladder descends with angelic beings coming and going, including the Son of Man, who rides upon a cloud.

It is clear that the Son of Man is a conduit to heaven and the Son of Man is (from) Orion.

As Adrian Gilbert notes in Signs in the Sky, the Greek word translated as cometh out in the prophecy, ‘For as the lightning cometh out of the last, and shineth not the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be’, is related to the Latin verb ‘expo,-ire’ from which is derived the English word ‘exit’. All these words in all three languages convey the sense of passing through a doorway from one area to another.

This is sounding more elegant by the moment. The Christ will step out of a hole in heaven. All on earth will be shaken by the power and great glory of this event.

Matthew finishes, saying; And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together the elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Mathew 24:27

Tagging along are the elect who will be gathered from one end of heaven to another. 

This sounds like earth will be a gathering place of advanced beings from across the universe. Undoubtedly, they will bring new ways of doing things, new technologies, new teachings. 


Let us briefly return to the trumpet symbol. In prophecy, it is more than just a musical instrument that produces a tone, wave or reverberation. It’s an emblem of divine revelation, a wake-up call, and its fanfare (Tantara) is a herald, especially of triumph. 

In Corinthians Paul also mentions a trumpet as a force for change.

51Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52in an instant, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53For the perishable must be clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.…

‘We will be changed’. Transfigured. Metamorphosed. Morphed.  ‘In the twinkling of an eye’. At the last trump.

Let us turn to Matthew’s account of the Transfiguration of Jesus:

17 After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus.

Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.”

While he was still speaking, a bright cloud covered them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!”

When the disciples heard this, they fell facedown to the ground, terrified. But Jesus came and touched them. “Get up,” he said. “Don’t be afraid.” When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.

As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus instructed them, “Don’t tell anyone what you have seen, until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead.”

10 The disciples asked him, “Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?”

11 Jesus replied, “To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things. 12 But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands.” 13 Then the disciples understood that he was talking to them about John the Baptist.

Jesus is clearly identifying himself as the Son of Man who will be resurrected / transfigured.

As I previously discussed, Dante spoke of this transhuman change during his own journey through the hole in heaven, describing how his human body was changed into an angelic one.

Today, we are being changed via transhuman technology. Right on time with the advent of wormhole physics.

Added together, the trump that heralds the appearance of the Son of Man in the sky and the trump that brings the transhuman change in Corinthians sounds like an enormous vibrational upgrade for humanity. 

This upgrade includes the creation of the resurrection body or light body.

In The Gospel of Thomas (22) Jesus said to them, “When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that male not be male nore the female female, and when you fashion eyes in the place of an eye, and a hand in place of  a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, and a likeness in place of a likeness; then you will enter the Kingdom”.

Jesus is telling the disciples to create / fashion an upgraded light body or resurrection body capable of handling the higher energies of the Kingdom. After this, nothing will be impossible for humanity.

Then, we will be a Son of Man.

Jesus said so in The Gospel of Thomas (106), When you make the two one, you will become Sons of Man, and when you say, ‘Mountain, move away’, it will move away”.


If (Christ) the Son of Man is a conduit, or even a wormhole, what then is the sign of the Son of Man?

For centuries it has been thought that the sign (symbol) of the Son of Man is the Etimasia, the empty or prepared throne of Christ. Typically, this Throne is composed of a footstool (the Ark of the Covenant), the rod of Aaron, a cruse of anointing oil, a flask of manna, a star covered cloak, a book and a dove. As I proposed in The Judgment Day Device, it is the fully assembled Ark of the Covenant. (The first chapter of the book is here.)

I have also written about this cosmic device / Ascension and Descension Throne here.

For the  Byzantines the etimasia was the “sign of the Son of man” of Matthew 24:30: “And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory”.

Matthew is suggesting that, like lightning, or lightning like, one who is lightning like will descend from heaven and take a seat on this Ark-like throne.

In the dome at St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice the twelve beams of light radiating from behind the throne land one on each of the apostles, each on their own little thrones and holding their own little books; each beam of light terminates on a tongue of flame hovering at the top of their halos. In the golden field between the inner circles of the throne and the outer circles of the apostles and their audiences, there is a circular inscription. It begins directly beneath the throne, “Spiritus in flamis…” and means:

The Spirit, in the form of tongues of fire, descends on them like a river. It strengthens hearts by filling them up and unites them with bonds of love. Following this, many peoples, seeing miracles and struck by the power of the Word, become believers.

Is this the sign (seal, symbol, device) we are to watch out for?


The sign of the Son of man is likened to Orion. 

The link is John’s vision in the Book of Revelation. John tells how, while on the island of Patmos, he was ‘in the Spirit’. Suddenly, he heard a loud voice like a trumpet.

I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and among the lampstands was someone like a son of man, dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. 14 The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. 15 His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. 16 In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.

John is describing some kind of a star being or star man. The mystery of this great star being was one of the great secrets of the Essenes and other Jewish mystics, for whom the Book of Revelation was written. He is referred to as Adam Kadmon (Archetypal Man), in whose image Adam was created, first as a being of light, then as a flesh and blood human. The Gnostics inferred from the verse “Let us make man in our image” (Genesis 1:26)  that the physical Adam was created in the image of a spiritual entity (in heaven)  also called Adam.

In the Essene Community Rule, it is said: …the Son of Man will teach the wisdom of the Sons of Heaven to the perfect of way. For God has chosen them for an everlasting Covenant and all the glory of Adam shall be theirs’. The description, ’His face was like the sun’, is key. The sun is made of plasma. This means the Son of man was a plasma being, like the suns of Heaven. 

The seven stars in his hand could be the seven stars of the Pleiades, which Orion hunts.

Looking into the heavens from Patmos, John would have seen that Orion is the only constellation which resembles a human in shape. He holds a club (probably a lightning bolt), and wears a lion’s skin along with a belt. 

The oldest human created image of human form was found in Germany in 1979. It is a very small ivory plate with an humanoid engraving on one side. The figurine was most certainly worn as an amulet and has mysterious engravings on the back. The meaning of this engravings is still unclear. A recent work by astronomer Dr. Michael A. Rappenglück interprets the amulet as a kind of star map. The figure is interpreted as a visualization of the constellation Orion.

Orion’s seven brightest stars form his distinctive hour-glass body. He holds seven stars in his body. He is the Archetypal Man in Heaven.

John is describing Orion. Orion is the heavenly Man of Light.

The most remarkable of all the cloudy stars is that in the middle of Orion’s Sword, where seven stars (of which three are very close together) seem to shine through a cloud, very lucid in the middle, but faint and ill-defined about the edges. 

At Orion’s heels are the constellations Canis minor and Canis major, which contains Sirius, the home of the gods Ptah and Isis. The ancient Egyptians believed that Ptah fashioned the human body. The goal of his work is described in the Pyramid Texts which tell of the transformation of the Pharaoh into lightning (plasma) and his journey along the stairway to heaven to become Orion. This is the core of the ancient Egyptian Starwalker mythos.

According to this cosmology Osiris, along with his brother and sisters was a child of Nut. He was sent to earth by the great god Atum-Re in order that the fundamentals of civilization should be taught to men. After Osiris died and was resurrected, Sahu, his stellar form, ascended back to his home in Orion.

The Egyptians sought to follow Osiris and join him in heaven. To do this they needed first to crystallize their own stellar, Sahu / karast body and be in a state capable of meeting God. In essence, they sought to become Orion / Sahu Men of Light after death and walk like Orion on the banks of the Milky Way galaxy. 

This is the beginning of the ancient Egyptian Starwalker tradition.

The pioneering expert on Egyptian astronomy, Otto Neugebauer, along with his colleague, Richard Parker, was the first to recognize the anthropomorphic Sahu figure, as seen the ceilings of the tombs of the Pharaohs and inscribed on the capstones of pyramids, represented the constellation Orion.

As E.A. Wallis Budge writes: 

The word sahu, though at times written with the determinative of a mummy lying on a bier, like khat, ‘body’, indicates a body which has obtained a degree of knowledge and power and glory whereby it becomes henceforth lasting and incorruptible. The body which has become a sahu has the power of ascending with the soul and holding converse with it. In this form it can ascend into heaven and dwell with the gods, and with the sahu of the gods. And with the souls of the righteous. 

As found in the tomb of King Seti I, the image of Sahu / Orion is a man on the Ark of the Millions of Years.

The ancient Egyptians believed that the soul of the deceased came to reside in the heavens as a star. If the soul passed all of the tests that it would encounter in the Duat or Netherworld then it would become one with Osiris/Sokar, lord of the Duat, and live forever in the night sky as a bright star. The pyramids of Giza were the method of conveyance. 

 I first identified the Ark of the Millions of Years as a wormhole in 1998.

Alnitak, Zeta Orionis, is the leftmost star of Orion’s Belt. It is the primary star in a triple star system located approximately 1,260 light-years away. Zeta Orionis is formally known as Alnitak. The name comes from the Arabic word an-niāq, meaning “girdle.” This is the ‘belt’ worn by Samson, Elijah, John the Baptist and other conscious ascenders. 

Orion stands wrapped about with a belt of truth.


Ephesians 6:14 – Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth… “Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?” — Job 38:31.

Daniel describes a star man with exactly the attributes of the Son of Man: 

On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was standing on the bank of the great river, the Tigris, I looked up and there before me was a man dressed in linen, with a belt of fine gold from Uphaz around his waist. His body was like topaz, his face like lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and his voice like the sound of a multitude.


This ‘glorified’ body or a body of shining (rainbow) light is the form which the early Church believed not only Christ possessed after this Resurrection, but also ‘saved’ (whole, holy) humans will, one day, also share this form. In 2 Corinthians 3:18 Paul remarks that Christians are, in fact, in the process of “transfiguring” into heavenly beings of light. 

The parallels between Christian and Egyptian ideas of ascension are obvious. As noted, Ur-ana  means “the light of heaven.”  Jesus is the Light of the World: The name Orion (John 12:46)

Just as the Egyptians believed they needed to be linked to and thereby drawn up to heaven by the sahu of Osiris, so Christians seek to put on the resurrection body / wedding garment of Christ. 

The glorified Sahu / Karast body of Egypt is the wedding garment required for attending a mystical, heavenly marriage as described in Matthew 22: ‘But when the king came in to look at the guests, he saw there a man who had no wedding garment; and he said to him,

‘Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding garment’?  And he was speechless. 


In the Old Testament, Enoch is the first human to walk with God. The text reads that Enoch “walked with God: and he was no more; for God took him” (Gen 5:21–24), which is interpreted as Enoch entering heaven alive.

In the Book of Enoch we read of a hierarchy of heavenly worlds, of angels and of a redeemer of human origin called the Son of Man. 

Enoch’s mysterious angels were previously known to the ancient Egyptians as the Watchers. The Pyramid Texts reveal they were lesser divinities mediating between the elder gods and humanity. They brought advanced civilizing knowledge with them from Orion. Raphael Patai refers to them as the Heru Shemsu, the Companions or Initiates of Horus who ruled predynastic Egypt. These formless light beings took on physicality. They were said to be exceptionally tall and high-skulled. In Egypt, they were connected to Osiris. Andrew Collins notes they were originally called Sons of God. (Bridechamber, p. 97).

In the Book of Enoch, they are described as “men in white.”

This is the reason for putting on white garments, the wedding garments” in Matthew. Along with anointing with oil, it linked the initiate to the Son of Man. In 2 Enoch 22:8-10 Enoch is anointed by the archangel Michael with sweet ointment and given a robe of glory, which “transforms him into an angel.”

These Starwalkers have the ability to dissolve their flesh and blood body into a light body. 

In the Gospel of John Jesus says:

The good shepherd lays down his life for his sheep…For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life, that I am take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have the power to lay it down and I have the power to take it up again: this charge I have received from the Father (John 10:17-19)

Jesus is clearly stating that he can dissolve his earthly, flesh and blood body into heavenly light and reform it into a physical form in another location. Jesus is demonstrating the skill and sacred science of the Starwalkers : light body transfiguration. This includes command of the physical body and knowledge of the light body. 

Jesus envisioned a time when all of humanity would have full realization of this potential via a new consciousness. He speaks directly of this consciousness in John:

No one has ever gone up to heaven except the one who came from heaven — the Son of Man. Just as Moses lifted up the serpent of healing in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted, that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life. (John 3:13-15).

Jesus is describing Christ Consciousness or Starwalker Consciousness.

With this statement Jesus is stating that he is the new Moses. Just as Moses brought the law of the Ten Commandments, Jesus brought the new law, which was based on two commandments. Love, with all your heart, all your mind and all your soul. Love your neighbor as yourself. All the law and the prophets hang on these two commandments. 

This new law, and Starwalker Consciousness, is the love-based Gnosis of the heart known as the Way. 

It is through the Gnosis of the heart — Starwalker Consciousness — that we find our way to the higher worlds. That, and lifting the Son of Man, the serpentine wormhole. 

How did Jesus attain this breakthrough Starwalker Consciousness?

Through baptism. As told in Matthew 3:16-17:

 16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

It was through baptism by John the Baptist that Jesus / Yeshua became the Anointed (Messiah or Christ). However, Jesus warned the disciples not to tell anyone who he was. Instead, he pointed to the Son of Man symbolism. In doing so, he pointed to Orion.

More, Jesus studied in Egypt. Central to his study would have been the resurrection mysteries whereby the dead Osiris was brought back to life by his sister-wife, Isis, with the help of Anubis and his resurrection oils. The Pyramid Texts say the soul of the king would become a star in Orion. 

The first step was to ‘make’ the Karast body. 

In my decades-long quest to comprehend the mysteries of this ‘big get’, I have been inspired by Dr. Charles Muses, who proposed that the Egyptians  (Ptah) had developed a technology in which tones, lights, and an as-yet unidentified plant are used, to “open a rusty valve”, or trigger the production of large pulses of hormones similar to the ecdysone (ecdydsterone), produced by larval forms of insects, which allows the adult form to emerge. In this way, they would allow the gestation or mutation of a non-molecular body – a new skin — that would allow the survival of consciousness beyond physical death. 

“The principle agent of Osiris’s transformation,” says Dr. Muses,  “was ‘the divine food’ which, like some super royal jelly could do for bees, would stimulate metamorphic neurosecretory organs in the human central nervous system and enable a superbiological process to take place to mature a higher body that can transcend at death and is capable of furnishing a sensorium to perceive and function in a world freer than the transient three-dimensional one in which we are currently confined. This was the ageless promise that Ancient Egypt held forth most explicitly.” This process was overseen by cosmic regents, the living archetypes of stellar powers.” 

In his study in ancient Egypt Jesus would have understood the image of Orion. The image of Orion is the man striding on a boat (walking on water), holding a resurrection staff (that channels the Holy Spirit) and a star in his hand.

My Starwalker logo, which I created in 2023.

This is the Sign of Orion. This is the sign of the Son of Man. This is the logo of the Starwalkers. 

‘Captain Orion’ is a third dimensional being who is bringing down a fifth dimensional energy to transform earth into a fourth dimensional world. 

Starwalker Consciousness, as exemplified in the Son of Man mystery teaching, is Divine Consciousness that is the base consciousness of the new world in which we now live. Enfolded within it is the best of all the world’s religions and spiritual traditions. When this is combined with the best of modern science we can open the door of the Starwalkers. 

Like the Son of Man, the Starwalker isn’t something we become. It is something we already are. It is our true self awaiting awakening.
