Important preface

The purpose of this small Essay is to provide a clear and deep understanding of how our Solar System was created far back in time, and how it has changed since then. The information presented are based on facts as well as on intuitive insights and dreams. It is therefore unwise interpreting the information as solid truth, it should likewise not be dismissed as tales of Science Fiction. Some claims in this Essay will certainly prove to sway from the truth, it is however my conviction that the large part eventually will
be confirmed. The content of the Essay should be viewed upon as pieces of a Jigsaw Puzzle, which put together with information from other sources creates an Overall Picture which will be as near the truth as is reasonable and possible for human beings to attain.


Verse 1: The Dawn of Creation

From a giant blue star APSU came about, created out of a turmoil, that day. There was a collision in space; the blue star "Canopa" slammed into APO, another great blue star. Apo lost major parts of its outer layers, shrunk and became the yellow star Apsu. And so Apsu was born, the first star in what was to be our Solar System. A tiny remnant of Apo was left however; the white dwarf star we today call "Procyon B". The star Canopa was split in two at the event, a part of the star broke free from the main body and created a smaller blue star. In a time much later it will be referred to as "Sirius B". Canopa was also reduced in the process and came out as the star we know as "Canopus".

Apsu emerged in an unconventional manner; Apo went into a torpor, a kind of coma. Now Apsu was the conscious and active unit. In a conventional creation process, a Sun is born from a dust cloud in the spiral arm of a galaxy, the cloud contracts out of an accumulation of gas and particles. As is expected in these kind of processes, the temperature drops, it does not rise, which is a natural consequence in the initial steps of material condensation. The Sun moves slowly in towards the galactic center and establishes an elliptical orbit. The "angle momentum" of the orbit shifts at every passage around the galactic center which gives the sun something that could be described as a "rosette-like" orbit pattern.

In the time span that followed Apsu collected no less than eight planets in orbits around its solar body. The process of ejected protons, the solar wind, provided the star with its outer border we call the "Oort Cloud", it was from this area of stationary proto planets Apsu collected his eight members. The solar wind created in this way a balance point between the gravity force directed inwards and the solar wind directed outwards, and in the very point of equilibrium a large amount of matter, like gravel, rocks, asteroids and proto planets could gather together. In this position, the objects have no self-motion, they need a "push" to establish orbits.

Verse 2: The Sun Barbaru arrives

It is when Apsu already established his Solar System and reached equilibrium that a massive yellow Sun enters and ties herself in an orbit around Apsu. BARBARU (The Shining One) is the name of the Sun, also known as UR-BAR-RA (wolf). Where from and on what paths has the star arrived, did it emerge by way of the Sirius System? This is yet unclear but the brilliant Sun has come to stay. Judging from its behavior, however, the Sun shows no signs of wanting to reside, time after another it makes moves to depart. The once so tranquil Solar System has now become a place of turmoil.

The Sun Barbaru is treacherous, she wants to be the central point of the Solar System though she does not have the authority. Plans and schemes unfolds, Apsu tries to calm down the situation but are entangled in the acting out and wild outbursts of Barbaru. The orbit of Barbaru around Apsu is eccentric and in no way stable, every now and then there is chaos. Barbaru was not alone on arrival, towing along came two other heavenly bodies, presumably two red dwarf stars. Initially they were by themselves but there would come a time when they were to be part of a considerably larger planet family.

Verse 3: The Sirius System

Several stars and planets found in our cosmic neighborhood is the outcome of an original Sun entity that we can name "Sirona" (Big Blue). Sirona was born in one of the numerous Star Clusters of The Milky Way Galaxy as a giant blue star. We do not know the cause but something happened that made Sirona eject out of its cluster, becoming a lone "wanderer". Suns in general have a plastic and dynamic structure, when drawn to close to each other they may on occasion split and divide into parts.

On one of these occasions the enormous Sirona was drawn apart, forming two smaller but still very large blue stars. One of these stars are known to us as Sirius A and the other we can call "Canopa". However, every star that splits in two also creates a third part, emerging out of the "dividing energy"; in this case a yellow star was formed that we will name "Centa". Yellow Centa will later play an important part in a smaller dimension but first, let's determine the destiny of the Star Canopa.

Canopa really was the twin Star of Sirius A but it would not stay in its original shape for very long. A collision with the heavenly body Apo causes Canopa to "calve" and form a smaller star; the reduced Canopa turns into the Star we know today as Canopus. The calved part will later on be "adopted" by Sirius A and therefore we will name it Sirius B. A similar destiny also befalls on Sirius B, the Star calves and produces a very tiny star; Sirius C.

Let's go back again to yellow Centa that was created when Sirona split apart. Centa is the yellow giant responsible for the creation of the Star System Alpha Centauri. The same dividing process are repeated, because Centa are split in two parts; into the Sun Centauri A and the Sun Osiris. And from the dividing energy a giant gas planet emerges that we will call "Zoroaster". A great destiny awaits Zoroaster but we must first account for the two major parts and especially Osiris who is to face a very special destiny.

Verse 4: Osiris descends

Approximately every 26.000 years, the planets in our present Solar System are bombarded with asteroids and comets which from time to time causes extinction of entire strains of creatures on Earth. Precisely this periodicity can be connected to greater cosmic cycles; our Solar System are believed to be gravitationally bonded with the Centauri System, that would explain the specific period. What happens every time the two Solar Systems meet is that the field of Solar Wind from the Centauri system (the Oort Cloud), bumps into our own Oort Cloud. As a consequence, a shower of comets, asteroids, rocks and grovel ejects towards the Sun and the planets, just like the blast from a huge shotgun. It is this enormous "clock" that regulates the periods of life on Earth.

The Star Osiris did not remain a permanent member of the Centauri System, which belongs to our closest neighboring stars. At a time when our Solar System encountered the Centauri System, Osiris was captured and became a yellow companion to star Apsu and Barbaru. Tagging along with Osiris was the blue gas giant Zoroaster. At this moment in time, Apsu was holding the central position of the Solar System with great authority. Barbaru was moving in an equivalent position as present day Jupiter, only with a more eccentric orbit. Osiris, having just slightly less mass than the other stars, might have entered to establish a "figure-of-eight" star system. This is when all three stars move around each other in this particular pattern.

Although a star system with this infrequent orbit pattern among its three members do exist, it is not very stable. We can expect this to have been a turbulent period with many incidents. Apsu already had its planetary members established so Barbaru and Osiris would have to crisscross through the planet field at regular intervals, not a very safe environment. Nevertheless, this went on for a certain period of time, until a misalignment in orbits slowly began to appear. The outcome could have been one or two stars leaving the system but this is not what unfolds. Instead there are stars moving in to close to each other. An ominous sequence is manifestating and now it is only a matter of time before a showdown is at hand.

Verse 5: Apsu meets with his destiny

The relation between Osiris and Apsu had always been one of mutual respect, their orbits frequently met and they had a rich and devote exchange. Nonetheless, the day finally came when they found themselves on a direct confrontation course. Osiris violently collides with Apsu, who's outer layers of gas shatters and dissipates like a nova. The remainder is a gas giant by the name of "Kingu", who at first keeps the independent orbit of former Apsu. Osiris, on his hand, pays a heavy price at the collision, a large part of his solar body cuts off and forms a small but independent Star, later known as "Centauri B". The small newly created star clings on to Osiris but will eventually be captured and adopted by Centauri A. Peculiarly, Centauri B later befell with the same karmic destiny, it divided, forming the tiny Centauri C.

From this day on, the "Chart" of the Solar System is re-written, the father Apsu is dethroned. The age of Barbaru has arrived. Barbaru instantly takes on ruling the "heavenly host", the planetary members of Apsu. The gas planet Kingu, used to lead, now had to follow the direction of Barbaru. A troublesome time follows, Barbaru has a hard time dealing with the loss of her husband, she loses the will to live, gets isolated and escapes into the dusk of denial. The planetary members are very much affected by this; living gets hard and heavy, joy vanishes, all that is left are duties and wearying labor. A general chaos prevails, planetary orbits are not stable, battles and discharges rages. The situation is increasingly getting unbearable, but the row of troubles has only just begun. The one who could turn the events and make a real change is, himself, in a tight spot, the world holds its breath for what is to unfold.

In spite of everything, a tiny "grain" was left behind from Apsu. This small nucleus was captured by the star Osiris and carried along during the several hundred year long travel above the ecliptic plane. And in connection with the descending of Osiris down below the ecliptic, the grain of Apsu broke free and joined with the sun Barbaru in an orbit close to her. The nucleus of Apsu is known today as the planet Mercury. Once a grand star it got reduced to a seemingly insignificant planet. But Apsu/Mercury was in a state of slumber or coma, the active soul moved to planet Kingu where it carried on with its long and tireless mission.

Verse 6: The death of Osiris

Osiris has encountered a severe collision but it is the presence of Barbaru that most of all drains Osiris of his energy, at every passage of the Barbaru System, his condition gets worse. Barbaru, in her egocentric mind, fails to recognize and relieve the burden of Osiris. And so, during one passage of Osiris, Barbaru once again takes tribute of her neighboring star, robbing him of even more energy. Osiris collapses, the light is extinguished and a death star is generated; Nemesis, the Destroyer. But in this collapsed state, the star has become unconquerable. Nemesis cannot die, he is Death! The collision with Apsu had further more changed the direction in which Osiris traveled, the star was directed down into "the abyss" (which is below the ecliptic) and it hardly managed to rise again. It was to be Nemesis destiny to reside for a time above the ecliptic and for the longest part dwell in the deep below the plane of the planets.

The lucent yellow Sun has faded away but Osiris, now king of the Underworld, is not lost. He has merely transformed himself to Nemesis, the Avenger, and in this state he is stronger than he ever was, practically invincible. His solar body has collapsed to a solid Neutron Star of tremendous density and with a strong magnetic field. He is fearsome to behold, his appearance is like a boiling ingle of lava with black dots on a yellow-orange surface. Moving through space, he rides on a black hydrogen gas cloud. And in his wake comes fierce comets, raging asteroids, gravel and dust. Ages goes by with Nemesis still in a state of a death star. At the time of writing, Nemesis has still not regained its luminous appearance. The time will surely come, though, when Nemesis through a metamorphosis turns back into the brilliant shining Osiris.

Verse 7: The twelve sons

Around her solar body, Barbaru has gathered Apsu's host of planets. The gas giant Kingu is also present, as is newly formed Mercury and the planet that followed Barbaru from the beginning. The Sumerian epos "Enuma Elish" names the crowd "eleven monsters". A confusion of titles might have taken place, the giant planet "Tiamat" arrives at a later point in time. The minister "Mummu" could possibly be the name of a planet that Osiris later adopted. Kingu is the successor of Apsu, created from his solar body at the time of the collision with Osiris. Several of the planets we know today has not yet been established.

There is a clear concurrence between the Barbaru Solar System and the Biblical tale of Jacob and his twelve sons. Jacob is the equivalent of Barbaru, in fact, I would like to conclude that Jacob represents an incarnation of the solar Goddess Barbaru. The firstborn son of Jacob was Reuben, in Gen 49:3 we read; "Reuben, you are my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength; The pre-eminence of dignity, and the pre-eminence of power". Reuben, in this context identical with planet Kingu, is the leader of the Barbaru host of planets. He initially holds an independent position but will come to inhabit the orbit of present day Saturn.

Who then is the twelfth member? We can presume this to be Osiris, who arrives from the outside followed by a large gas planet. To re-connect with the analogy of Jacobs sons, Joseph in this case is equal to the Star Osiris. The Star enters the Solar System just next to the Barbaru orbital position. Barbaru however, treats the newly arrived heavenly bodies as a mere contribution to her "crew" and Joseph (Osiris) swiftly gets to be the favored one. This favoritism soon causes strife among the brothers (planets). Joseph then reveals an un-common and extraordinary dream he had.

From the Bible we recall the dream of Joseph, where the Sun, the Moon and eleven stars bowed down to him (granting him as King). The "Sun" is not the present one but Barbaru, the older Sun. The "Moon" is the companion of Osiris; Zoroaster. The eleven "stars" are the planetary host of Barbaru which in the dream must bow down to the ruler Osiris. There is however no immediate conflict between Barbaru, Osiris and "the crowd of eleven". Barbaru ensnares Osiris in her net, makes herself indispensible, he does not realize he is deluded, fascinated as he is by the sharp intellect of Barbaru.
