Where the magyar storks winter...

Zsuzsa Tomory: Where the magyar storks winter...

I am quoting the introduction of a book. I will tell the name of a land under discussion a little later, now substituting it with a "..." gap, which will also explain the above title (which in itself should give a hint...).

"INTRODUCTION - ANCIENT HUMAN HISTORY. The ancient history of "..." is one of the great mysteries of humankind. While the world has become obsessed with places like Egypt, Mesopotamia, Mexico, and other popularised locations, very few have paid the same kind of attention to the real cradle of humankind...." "....The discoveries we have been making here since 2003 are so astonishing that they will require a dramatic paradigm shift in our perception of human history. And since history is written by the victors, it is evident that it has been dramatically skewed by its authors over many centuries. We should therefore assume that we actually know very little about the real path that brought us here. We need to set aside preconceived ideas and any rosy pictures we harbour about who we are and where we come from, because the research is delivering answers that some of us may not be ready to accept. It is imperative that we follow the clues and not hide any evidence simply because it does not fit the picture of human history, as we have painted it. This book has been compiled to simply spark the interest of those who are ready to accept a new alternative to the conventional. I am certain that there are not too many people on Earth today who are deeply happy with the way the world has turned out. A new understanding of the real history of humankind may just provide some of the answers we have been searching for and deliver a new sense of comfort for many who feel betrayed by our historians and especially by our religions."

Shortly after this introduction the author talks about the fact, that official scholarship teaches today, as it did for centuries that this territory was empty, nobody lived there, and it is a useless peace of real estate in this country.

Old memories grabbed my heart: yes, in the schools of my childhood this is what they tought us, that the Carpathian Basin was uninhabited prior to Prince Árpád's home coming. They did not explain, how could then he and his people have originated from this land? He and his people originated from here, and returned here much later, to their ancient home. Neither did our teachers explain, how it is, that all the large rivers, good lands, excellent for agriculture, meadows and forests did not find permanent inhabitants? Even in our childhood we doubted this theory. I call this a theory, because we did not accept these teachings as reality.

But this book under present discussion does not talk about the Carpathian Basin, but its geologyc sibling, South Africa. It talks about the land, which our Magyar white storks consider their second home, even though their real, nesting home is the Carpathian Basin, up to this day. I may say especially today, since the present machine-civilisation and its products have pushed their home out from other countries. In Magyar land on the other hand, eight and ten year old boys were observed to build nests for homeless stork families on trees, and even officials have built on top of electric poles appropriate nesting places for them. And this is just right, since our very old nursery rhyme states too:

Stork, stork, gilice
Why your bloodied foot ?
Enemy boy cut it
Magyar boy who heals it
With magic, fife , drum and fiddle.

(Translated by Imre Oláh)

The now discussed book's author is Michael Tellinger, the researcher of this land, which was declared uninhabited by the authorities of different scholarships. At his lecture at Northern Illinois University within minutes thoughts emerged in me dealing with my own Magyar homeland, so very similar to the life of South Africa. I would like to give a quick glimpse of these, without neglecting the important points of this book. The book's title is: Temples of the African Gods. Revealing the Ancient Hidden Ruins of Southern Africa. Michael Tellinger started his research with his friend, Johan Heine. They were looking for the real treasures of this land, by which I mean historical truths, elevated thinking of an ancient culture. But while researching these, unexpected material treasures came to the forefront, which all of a sudden explain the belitteling attitude of the ruling elite. And these explanations are just as fitting considering the Carpathian Basin.

Tellinger is a true scientist, researcher, who is not afraid to express opinions that are contrary to the presently held doctrines. He finished pharmacology at the WTTS Johannesburg University. He was interested in biology, the evolution of mankind and all sciences that can shed light onto this journey. His artistic side took him into the world of music. He also is a writer of films and books for children. Human origins were the central point of his life and interest, and to gain answers to these problems. When his friend Johan Heine discovered the until then seemingly undiscovered stone circles in South Africa, finding and explaining these became the goal of his life. The until then uninhabited land cradles ten million stone circles, with ages between one- and twohundred-thousand years. These immense building projects required a large population. The arrangement of these stone circles differs, but their form is always a cirle. Interestingly these circles have no openings as doors. Their research found the reason: these circles were designed to store energy, and the builders utilised sound energy for this purpose.

During his research unwittingly he had to pay attention to Z. Sitchin's Sumerian works, since many sights mentioned in them were the exact descriptions of the South African building sites. He discovered, that the Sumerian Netherland, the ABZU in not a shady world, but it was the South African land, which - in Sumerian times - was believed to be the bottom of the world. As most scholars of today, he also believed that the Sumerian was the very first culture on our Earth, and at first he believed the carved signs which he found were of Sumerian origin. In the mirror of our Magyar symbolism it is inevitable to recognise Magyar folk symbols in these: cross within a circle is the symbol of Sun in Avar-Magyar symbology, the punched, or elevated dots tell us about Magyar matriarchal or patriarchal group's presence, the wedged signs that of the Huns. In South Africa the circle enclosed cross is the symbol of Mabona, the Lord of Light. The immense stone circles' layout is most often in the image of a flower. In Magyar the word flower and the world is the same (virág and világ).

The ancient stone statues of bird symbols are still living on the head-markers of our old graves, as prof. Imre Horváth rescued them for us, and we find - shown in my book Kezdeteink, written over a decade ago -- the image of an ancient Turul bird with Magyar signs now in Michael Tellinger's book too as the precurser of their holy Zimbabve bird.

Place names near the research areas need further study, but at first glance we find the Szemere and Szolim-Magyar consonantal groups along with the symbolism of these groups. Below I am showing some of Prof. Imre Horváth's characteristic bird-head markers for comparison:

The images of the Egyptian ankh, the winged sun disks are frequent in the world of these stone circles, but in huge size.The rayed Sun-disk is called Makalanga here, which carries the meaning of The Son of the Sun, which ancient Magyars called Magor or Makar, thus giving us a linguistic parallel too. The tilt of the huge stones called Adam's calendar tells us their age, an unbelievable 280,000 years. Here I have to mention that the Magyar Holy Crown's cross is tilted. This has different explanations, and its true calendar message has to be established with certainty.

The snake symbol as the sign of energy can be found in Magyar folk art. I am quoting Adorján Magyar: "...A mysterious sign was carved in earlieer times onto the Kalotaszegi Magyar folk doors, which was the following: a winding snake, with a nightingale on its head... In my opinion this was the symbol of Creation or God, who, according to many belief systems created the world with sounds, the spoken Word. In Magyar God's name is Ég, his word Íge - both words are from the same word root. This Íge can only be used to the Word of God and Creation.This of course is again a symbolic speech which essentially means that he created through some sound, some sound resonance or sound-waves, which He used to collect the atoms of ancient matter in the Universe and organise them into different shapes. The typically wave-like motion of the snake then means waves, and the nightingale reminds us that we have to perceive them as sound waves.(p. 149)"

The most startling point of Michael Tellinger's lecture in my eyes was the image of a human heart he projected next to a South African geographical area, which is truly heart shaped. It is impossible not to think of the Pilis mountain region of the Carpathian Basin, which is heart shaped! During our later correspondence I mentioned this fact to him and also the works of researcher Kadocsa Vetráb in this subject.

History, symbols, word roots, a typical geographical formation and even the flight of the Magyar white stork bring to mind a once existing ancient connection. The above mentioned do not even scratch the surface - that will be the job of further research. But I do have to mention two thoughts.

One is the fact that the high and mighty of history wanted to cover up the existence of a high spiritual and material culture from ancient times to the present in the name of greed. This territory cradles not only the traces of a once existing high culture - but also gold, prescious stones and other treasures, which are listed in this book. It was in the interest of the newcomer foreigners to make this land "disappear" from the viw of others. It was because of greed that South Africa suddenly became "uninhabited" land. It is for this reason she had to loose her ancient culture. The traces of this process of exploitation, and along with it: slavery, leads all the way back to ancient times.

It was at this point I realised, that the Carpathian Basin was declared an empty, uninhabited land too in the hands of the "high and mighty" of different historical regions, since she too has immense treasures in gold and other minerals and it is for this reason we had to loose our ancient culture too. The most ancient Magyar legends already mention this danger. The greed of the outside world in ancient times destroyed the spirit, the ideals of our Golden Age and this process is still ongoing. Verespatak of Erdély in the Carpatian Basin is a living example, where the "high and mighty" money-makers destroy ecology, ancient buildings, remnants of a once high culture so they can mine for gold while filling the valleys with lethal mining slush in the name of the spirit of greed, while the remnants of the ancient culture are left destitute.

The second thought: South Africa begins to wake up these days. A new movement called UBUNU is taking shape, which means CONTRIBUTIONISM, everyone contributes to the well being of the society according to their natural talents, thus creating UNITY, which will became the base of infinite DIVERSITY. They are trying to bring back their almost lost, but still living ancient culture. In some Magyar towns the same movement began some years ago. The first I have knowledge of is called Magfalva and it is successful, so others begin to follow their lead.

The author of this book takes active part in this work too.

It is no accident: his father is Magyar.
