Here’s a detailed English translation of some of the passages from the Zohar, talking about whether the earth is a ‘circle’ or ‘ball.’
I can’t take any credit for this, it was sent to me by two of my friends, who spent half a day painstakingly doing it.
Thanks, C and C!
As with all things ‘Zohar’, even with a good English translation, it’s still not very easy to understand.
But I thought I’d put it up here – and I’m including their photocopies of the original Aramaic text below – and let you, the reader, decide for yourselves, what to make of this.
One translation note: Some of these words can not be easily rendered into English, so they’ve been left as Hebrew transliterations. But rekiah usually means ‘firmament’, and rekiim is just the plural term, for ‘firmaments’.
Zohar translation – Vayikra 9 amud aleph and 10 amud aleph
Rabbi Yehuda began “And Elokim said – Let there be a rekiah (firmament) inside the water etc.”
Come and see the time that Hashem created the world (עולם). He created 7 rekiim above, He created 7 lands (ארצות) below.
(The Matok MiDvash says that these lands were created below in the belly of the adamah and their names are: ארץ, אדמה, גיא, נשיה, ציה, אקרא, תבל and תבל is the biggest of them)
7 seas, 7 rivers, 7 days, 7 weeks, 7 years 7 times. 7000 years that the world is to be, Kudsha Brichu is in the 7th of all.
7 rekiim above and in each and every one of them there are stars and mazalot and servants that serve each and every rakiah.
And in all of them there are chariots, these above these to receive upon themselves the yoke of the Kingdom of their Master. And in all of these rekiim there are chariots and servants and they are different these from these and some are above the others. Some have six wings, some have 4 wings. Some have 4 faces. Some have 2 faces and some have one. Some are burning fire. Some are water. Some are wind.
As it’s written (in Tehillim 104 verse 4): “He makes winds His messengers, burning fire His ministers”.
All of these rekiim those above those are like the skin (כגלדי) of onions, some are below and some are above.
And all of these rekiim shake and tremble from fear of their Master.
On His mouth it’s taken and on His mouth they are sustained (Matok MiDvash interprets this pasuk in the following way “According to His mouth they travel and according to His mouth they stand). And above all of them there is Kudsha Brichu that takes all with strength and force.
In this way are the 7 lands below, and all of them are in the yeshuv, only that some are above and some are below.
And Eretz Israel is above all and Yerushalayim is above all yeshuv.
(The Matok MiDvash is adding in this paragraph that according to the reasoning that the Zohar brings earlier these 7 lands are 7 climates and they are together with us in the yeshuv haaretz)
[RIVKA NOTE: The Matok MiDvash commentary on the Zohar was written in modern times, by Rabbi Daniel Frisch (1935-2005), of the Toldos Aharon community. It’s at least possible that some hint of the modern ideas about our solar system may have crept into his explanations.]
And our friends, the sages who sat in the south, saw in the books of the ancients and in the book of Adam HaRishon that this is how he divided all these lands.
And all of them are found below.
(The Matok MiDvash explains here that now the Zohar refutes the explanation above and is saying that all these lands are found below mamash in the navel of the land – הארץ – and they are not 7 division of the land called climates. They are mamash complete lands in which there are different creatures and they are found in the navel of the land, this on the back of this) .
In this manner just like the rekiim above, some above the others and others above the others.
And between each and every land there is a rekiah that separates between them.
So too all the lands are divided according to their names. And between them there is Gan Eden and Gehenom.
And there are between them different creatures just like above. Some of them have 2 faces, some have 4 and some have one. And the appearance of these are not like those.
[RIVKA NOTE: This appears to be a direct reference to ‘extra terrestials’ – but not from outer space.]
(Translator’s note: I skipped here a part where it’s talking about Adam HaRishon and if he birthed children in all of these lands. It’s a cryptical paragraph, so I decided to skip it since I didn’t find it relevant to the earth subject.)
In the book of Rabbi Hamnuna Sava it’s explained more, that all yeshuv roll (מתגלגל) in a circle (בעגול) like a ball (ככדור).
[RIVKA NOTE: THIS SEEMS TO BE THE KEY SENTENCE TO PONDER, IN TERMS OF WHAT THE ZOHAR IS REALLY TELLING US ABOUT HOW THE WORLD OPERATES.]
Some below, some above and all the creatures are different in their appearances according to the change of avirah (atmosphere) that there is in each and every place.
And they stand in their lives like other human beings.
[RIVKA COMMENT: WE KNOW FROM CHAZAL THAT DEMONS ALSO APPEAR TO BE ‘HUMAN’ BUT HAVE ‘CHICKEN FEET’, AND A FEW OTHER CHARACTERISTICS THAT MAKE THEM UN-HUMAN. SEE HERE FOR MORE DETAIL.]
(The Matok MiDvash adds in this paragraph that Rav Hamnuna Sava was of the opinion that the 7 lands are the 7 climates and the sages of the south disputed with him and Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai was a citizen of the south and was of the opinion like the sages of the south).
And therefore there are places in the yeshuv, whenever some are illuminated others are in darkness.
In this it’s day and in this there is night.
And there are places where it’s always day and there is no night except for a few hours.
And there is a place that is entirely day. And this is what is written in the book of the ancients and in the book of Adam HaRishon.
As it’s written (in Tehillim 139 verse 12): ” I shall thank You for in an awesome, wondrous way I was fashioned; Your works are wondrous.”
And it’s written (in Tehillim 104 verse 24) “How wonderous are Your works Hashem”.
And about this everything fits perfectly.
And this secret has been granted to the masters of wisdom and not to those who divide the limits.
Because this is a deep Torah secret.
According to this is the sea in which there are many creatures different from each other.
As it’s written (in Tehillim 104 verse) “This sea-great and wide; there are creeping things and innumerable beasts, both small and large. There the ships go; this leviathan.”
And everything depends these on that and everything is according to what is above.
And in all of these worlds nobody rules except for man and Hashem above him.
Rabbi Nehorai Sava went on a voyage to the sea.
(According to Matok MiDvash this is the Mediterrean sea).
And there was a storm in the sea that sank the ship and a miracle was made for him and he went down with the known paths to the heart of the sea.
And he went out from underneath the sea to a certain yeshuv and he saw many creatures that were tiny.
And they were praying a prayer. And he didn’t know what they were saying.
A miracle was made for him and he went up.
[RIVKA NOTE: I.E. BACK TO DRY LAND ABOVE THE SEA].
He said, fortunate are the righteous that toil in Torah and know the supreme hidden secrets.
Oy vavoy to those that disagree with their words and don’t believe in them.
From this day onwards whenever he went to the beit midrash and the sages would expound the Torah he (Rav Nehorai Sava) would cry.
They asked him why are you crying.
And he answered because I transgressed the emunah of the words of the sages.
And I am fearful of the din (judgment) of that world.
(The Ramak explains it’s the olam habah)
Lots and lots to think about here.
What struck me, is that the Zohar doesn’t seem to be talking about the ‘shape’ of the natural world at all, just its composition.
For example, this sentence is frequently quoted to justify the position that the Zohar says the world is shaped like a ball:
In the book of Rabbi Hamnuna Sava it’s explained more, that all yeshuv roll (מתגלגל) in a circle (בעגול) like a ball (ככדור).
But when I read it, it seems to just be describing the ‘motion’ of the yeshuvim, or the lands, that they roll around in a circle, like a ball.
Also, pay attention to the Zohar’s description of ‘extra terrestials’.
I know I’ve mentioned this a few times, but a fake ‘alien invasion’ seems to be on the cards soon, which is why the media in all its formats has been priming us for years, to prepare for the UFOs from ‘outer space’.
If you read THIS post, then you know that the UFOS are really just ‘black’ technology developed by the Nazis that came over to form the West’s ‘deep state’ post WW2 – and who have been happily experimenting upon humanity, in a million demonic ways, ever since.
But why would the ‘deep state’ want to fake an alien invasion from ‘outer space’?
If you go HERE, you’ll find a PDF of a short book that was put out by the Dial Press in 1967, called:
To make a very long story very short, this report detailed how ‘war’ is actually the key way that societies maintain their economic and social control over the population.
If there was no ‘war’, no external ‘threat’ posed by other militaries trying to take over your country – then who the heck would pay all these taxes, or give away so many of their human rights and personal freedoms, or let all these corrupt politicians dictate to us how to live?
This report was commissioned by a bunch of those ‘elites’ who believe they own the world.
And it was wrestling with the huge problem (for them…) of how they could maintain their control of the populations they rule in a world with a ‘One World Government’ – and maintain the huge amount of economic spending currently required by the military – if there was no more war.
They came up with a few ‘economic surrogates’ that could replace perpetual war, including:
A vast ‘social welfare’ program – which they ultimately rejected, for the following reasons (see page 47 of the report):
In the past, such a vague and ambitious-sounding “program” would have been dismissed out of hand, without serious consideration; it would clearly have been, prima facie, far too costly, quite apart from its political implications.
Our objection to it, on the other hand, could hardly be more contradictory.
As an economic substitute for war, it is inadequate because it would be far too cheap.
If this seems paradoxical, it must be remembered that up to now all proposed social-welfare expenditures have had to be measured within the war economy, not as a replacement for it. The old slogan about a battleship or an ICBM costing as much as x hospitals or y schools or z homes takes on a very different meaning if there are to be more battleships or ICBM’s.
So then, they moved to other suggestions including:
2. “A series of giant space research programs.”
(This snippet from page 48:)
Another economic surrogate that has been proposed is a series of giant “space research” programs. These have already demonstrated their utility in more modest scale within the military economy.
What has been implied, although not yet expressly put forth, is the development of a long-range sequence of space research projects with largely unattainable goals.
This kind of program offers several advantages lacking in the social welfare model. First, it is unlikely to phase itself out, regardless of the predictable “surprises” science has in store for us: the universe is too big.
In the event some individual project unexpectedly succeeds there would be no dearth of substitute problems. For example, if colonization of the moon proceeds on schedule, it could then become “necessary” to establish a beachhead on Mars or Jupiter, and so on.
Second, it need be no more dependent on the general supply-demand economy than its military prototype. Third, it lends itself extraordinarily well to arbitrary control.
Space research can be viewed as the nearest modern equivalent yet devised to the pyramid-building, and similar ritualistic enterprises, of ancient societies.
Are you starting to see how this all fits together a bit more, now?
3. Create a worldwide ‘Peace Corps’ to enforce social engineering programs, to replace the military.
(See page 50.)
A more sophisticated variant is the proposal to establish the “Unarmed Forces” of the United States. This would conveniently maintain the entire institutional military structure, redirecting it essentially toward social-welfare activities on a global scale.
It would be, in effect, a giant military Peace Corps.
Later on, the document starts talking about how they would also need to generate a ‘credible external threat’ to humanity, to retain political, social and economic control.
Here’s some of their suggestions:
(See page 51).
The most ambitious and unrealistic space project cannot of itself generate a believable external menace.
It has been hotly argued that such a menace would offer the “last, best hope of peace,” etc., by uniting mankind against the danger of destruction by “creatures” from other planets or from outer space.
And if that doesn’t work, then there’s always the ‘climate change’ bogey man!
(Again, from page 51)
It may be, for instance, that gross pollution of the environment can eventually replace the possibility of mass destruction by nuclear weapons as the principal apparent threat to the survival of the species.
Poisoning of the air, and of the principal sources of food and water supply, is already well advanced, and at first glance would seem promising in this respect; it constitutes a threat that can be dealt with only through social organization and political power.
But from present indications it will be a generation to a generation and a half before environmental pollution, however severe, will be
sufficiently menacing, on a global scale, to offer a possible basis for a solution.
It is true that the rate of pollution could be increased selectively for this purpose; in fact, the mere modifying of existing programs for the deterrence of pollution could speed up the process enough to make the threat credible much sooner.
But the pollution problem has been so widely publicized in recent years that it seems highly improbably that a program of deliberate environ- mental poisoning could be implemented in a politically acceptable manner.
The Report from Iron Mountain was written – and published by the Dial Press – back in 1967.
It’s not a joke, spoof or satire – although the author later tried to claim that it was.
You only need to look around and see that so many of that report’s ‘recommendations’ have been put into action, and are operating at full swing all around us.
There is a lot more to say about this.
But ‘alien invasions’, pointless ‘space race’ programs, military-enforced ‘social engineering’ projects and climate change and ‘pollution’ are pretty much all our media and our politicians ever talk about.
And that’s not a coincidence.
So we see, that there are massive vested interests behind all this NASA space stuff.
And it’s the same vested interests who are behind the COVID-19 plandemic.
He who has eyes to see – will see.
You can also download the REPORT FROM IRON MOUNTAIN HERE:
A reader and friend just sent me this – it’s a speech Ronald Reagan gave to the United Nations back in 1987.
Start listening around the 29 minute mark, and this is what you’ll hear:
“Perhaps we need some outside universal threat to make us recognise this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.
And yet, I ask you, is not an alien force already among us?
What could be more alien to the universal aspirations of our peoples than war, and the threat of war?”
There you have it, straight out of the ‘Report from Iron Mountain’ playbook (see page 51).
Once you uncover the ‘script’ all these people are preaching from, uncovering the artifice and the lies gets way, way easier.
