The Miracle of the Sun, 1917: Ancient Angels at Fatima? The Possible Common Origins of Star Gods
The Dogon have a very sophisticated level of knowledge of science and quantum mechanics, something that the early anthropologists could not have known about and some of modern sciences newest discoveries are only beginning to parallel what the Dogon have described for centuries and which they say they have known for thousands of years.
A striking similarity exists between the ancient amphibious Gods, the Oannes, who were said to have arrived from the stars and brought civilizing skills to early humans, and the Dogon deities, the Nommo. The carvings of these gods and beings often show them immersed in waves, which may also symbolize their immaterial and quantum nature.

Another interesting parallel is the phonetic similarity between Oannes and Noah who are both civilizers who emerge from the waters. This is further reinforced by the fact that the Biblical Noah and the story of the flood is a much older Sumerian myth connecting the Dogon to the myths and Gods of this time.
Ancient Agents of Change
Could it be that all of these deities emanate from the same place and the messages they bring change depending upon the culture and sophistication of the people who receive it? Is it possible that the star beings of the Hopi, the Kachina, who are also said to come from Sirius, are the same beings that appeared to the Dogon? The Hopi call one of their saviour gods Anu, which is also the name of the Babylonian sky god, for example.

Could these deities also be the same messengers who appeared at Fatima and who were channelled by Aleister Crowley and Rudolf Steiner or are all of these transmissions some kind of unconscious, cultural impulse?
When we also take into account many other religious movements which began with an apparition or a channelled transmission we begin to see a very ancient pattern emerging. Whether we examine Mormonism, the Abrahamic faiths, Buddhism, Hinduism or the various Shamanic traditions, the one common feature is the origin point where beings who claim to be from beyond the human realm are the instigators of a new paradigm.
Is this just a coincidence or could it be something more profound?
