Astana Kazakhstan is a city which takes the form of a magical diagram upon the ground. I feel that I am only scratching the surface of the many layers of secrets in plain sight encoded there. I have to start somewhere so I’ll share with you my thinking at this point.

First of all Astana is in one of the worlds least hospitable places with temperature extremes ranging from +40 to -50 degrees C (+106 to -60 degrees F). It is the world’s second coldest capital after Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

Isn’t it strange that the Kazakhs moved their capital to the coldest place in Kazakhstan in 1998?

“To some Kazakhs, the move remains controversial. Critics cite the city’s isolated location in the center of the Kazakh steppe and the forbidding climate in winter.”

Astana is more or less at the center of the Eurasian landmass. In this way it functions much the same as the Manitoba Legislative Building does in North America: it is at the center. See Finding the Center.

Astana was named in 1998. Thanks Jan Thulstrup for posting on the word Astana on Facebook. There was a lot of sync for me around Astana today.

The word Astana originates from Persian آستانه‎ which means “sublime threshold,” or “royal door” from the Persian verb آستان which means ‘to stand in respect’, and literally means royal or sacred “threshold” where people stand in respect or awe.

Astana is starting to sound like a stargate. I need to call William Henry!

Between 1991-98 the place was called Akmola which means “White Shrine.”

From 1961-91 it was called Tselinograd which means “Virgin Lands City.”

In the 1950’s under Stalin, what is now Astana was the “Camp for Wives of Traitors of the Motherland”, one of the most notorious in the Gulag archipelago. It hasn’t always been peace and light in Astana.

In capitals like Astana, Brasilia, Washington DC, and Canberra which were created on relatively blank canvases we have the special opportunity to see into the minds of the designers by studying the urban fabric.

Astana clearly has a central axis. I see this as a spine. Sir Norman Foster designed the two ends of the axis with the Palace of Peace and Reconciliation and the aptly named Khan Shatyr Entertainment Center.

The phallus-egg entertainment center is a high-tech tent covering an area larger than 10 football stadiums which has “an urban-scale internal park, shopping and entertainment venue with squares and cobbled streets, a boating river, shopping centre, minigolf and an indoor beach resort.” –Source

The red line marks the end of Astana’s axis and represents the root chakra. Believe it or not, it is exactly 4,444,444 yards to the other end of this line which terminates at the apex of the Great Pyramid in Egypt. Please measure it yourself in Google Earth and you too will “stand in respect or awe.”

Bayterek is the heart and most famous symbol of Astana. It represents a tree of life where a magic bird Samruk (aka Simurgh) laid a golden egg, measuring 22 meters in diameter in this case.

Notice the solar octagram star symbol surrounding Bayterek and again on the ends of the minor cross axis. The heart chakra is the Sun.

Iranian legends consider the bird so old that it had seen the destruction of the World three times over. The simurgh learned so much by living so long that it is thought to possess the knowledge of all the Ages. In one legend, the simurgh was said to live 1,700 years before plunging itself into flames (much like the phoenix). –Source

The phoenix is flying toward the Palace of Peace and Reconciliation.

Aza O’Leary discovered that an 85 million year old species unearthed in Kazakhstan was named Samrukia nessovi.

The generic name of the species is a nod to Samruk, a mythological Kazakh phoenix, while its specific name, nessovi, honours the late Lev Nessov, a Russian palaeontologist who, before his death in 1995, made a valuable contribution to Central Asian vertebrate palaeontology. –Source

The Palace of Peace and Reconciliation in the position of the crown chakra takes the form of a 77 meter high pyramid.

The Pyramid was specially constructed to host the “Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions” containing accommodations for Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism and other faiths.

The pyramid also houses an opera house and stained glass at the apex depicting doves. My friend Rick points out that there are 32 points around the table where the Congress meets.

Tariqas Al Khadir pointed out that the flag of Kazakhstan also has 32 rays and the magic bird.

Kazakhstan hosted the 2011 Asian Winter Games which is a spectacle almost on the scale of the Olympics. Kazakhstan won 32 golds. The opening ceremony was quite a spectacle. Thanks again to Aza for the info and link. At 2m45s “This is a special place in the world; Kazakhstan is a bridge between Asia and Europe…”

Here is what the Palace of Peace and Reconciliation looks like at night:

These are of course the Olympic colors.

The Olympic Stadium in London will be transformed into a “green and pleasant land” during the opening megaritual. See here. This is a reference to William Blake’s poem where he talks about a chariot of fire and building a new Jerusalem in England.

Here’s a depiction of Ezekiel’s chariot of fire. Doesn’t it remind you of something olympic?

I felt inspired to see where the central spine of Astana points. Extending the line across the Earth I find that it points directly at Asuncion, the capital of Paraguay.

ASUNCION is pronounced AH SOON SEE ON. ON is the name of ancient Heliopolis. Another way of thinking of this is A SUN SION or A SUN ZION.

This brings us back to the Olympics and the word Zion encoded in the official logo.

Perhaps these are the first sionists?

Concept from Geneset by David Wood and Ian Campbell

Astana is 133 degrees away from Asuncion as measured in Google Earth. Asuncion means Assumption in Spanish. Are my assumptions valid?

Asuncion, capital of Paraguay, actually refers to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven.

Assumption by Titian (1516-1518)

The Roman Catholic Church teaches as dogma that the Virgin Mary “having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory.” This doctrine was dogmatically and infallibly defined by Pope Pius XII on 11/1/1950. –Source

The assumption is a stargate that also reminds me of the Apotheosis of George Washington under the US Capital dome.

On the flipside ASTANA is an anagram for A SATAN. SATANAS means Satan in Spanish (thank you Donn Juan Mena).

Is Astana a future HQ for the NWO’s agenda to create a one-world religion in the aftermath of some olympic style mega-ritual like a phoenix reborn from the flames?

The olympics are held every 4 years which amounts to 1461 days (365×4 plus one leap day).

The Sothic cycle is a period of 1,461 ancient Egyptian years of 365 days each. During a Sothic cycle, the 365-day year loses enough time by not accounting for leap year that only after exactly 1461 years does the start of the year once again coincide with the heliacal rising of Sirius, star of Isis.

Therefore the secret in plain sight is the Olympics are an ancient mega-ritual symbolically going back all the way to ancient Egypt. There are just 9 days until the festivities begin, one day for each god in the ennead.

This just in on 8/10/12…Kevin McMahon just figured out another reason why Astana is where it is. My mind is blown (again).

Update 6 Sept 12: Craig’s comments reveal that the PPR is 33,000,000 feet from the center of Treasure Island in San Francisco. The center point is a baseball field. Baseball encodes so many things, a few of which are depicted in this piece of art I made a while back.

The Sacred Geometry of Baseball

Also the golden Dome of the Rock to the Adam’s apple (remember the garden of Eden?) of Astana’s encoded man is 3652.42 km, echoing the solar year of 365.242 days. Eating the fruit from the tree of knowledge reveals solar symbolism in this case.
