Astana and the Olympics

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.

“Over 13,000 athletes compete at the Summer and Winter Olympics in 33 different sports.” –Source

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.

William Blake's poem Jerusalem

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

Ezekiel’s Wheel in St. John the Baptist Church in Kratovo, Macedonia

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.

  1. Sorry, I meant to include this to my previous comment. Another story about the closing ceremony with more pheonix symbolism mentioned… (the link to the online article no longer works unfortunately). This and the video in my previous comment are different events linked only by their association with the royal opera house, who have attracted my attention ever since they put on a full scale opera about Anna Nicole Smith complete with the entire opera company doing devil horn signs at the audience!

    ’15 May 2012

    The Queen has dedicated her life to serving others. But has she now accepted a mission on her own service?

    The Londoner has been told that her Majesty is set to “drop in” to the Olympics ceremony via helicopter.

    It has already been reported that Daniel Craig will help open the Olympics in character as James Bond, following a personal invitation from the Queen. This will form part of a short film made by the ceremony’s artistic director Danny Boyle in which 007 travels to Buckingham Palace to be informed that his latest mission is to launch the Olympic Games.

    Now it emerges that the Queen could also accompany Bond on board the helicopter in the same film montage.

    Craig will then be parachuted live into the Olympics arena for the spectacular opening ceremony this July. Ballerina Darcey Bussell is also said to be involved in the closing ceremony. Royal Ballet dancers are rumoured to appear dressed as flames and Bussell is the phoenix.

    James Bond has always had a string of young females as his sidekicks But never has Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II accompanied him on a mission.

    Daniel Craig has been spotted filming at Buckingham Palace amid high secrecy, though a Palace source did let slip that, in one scene, Bond is thought to be knighted for services to Queen and country.

    “We wouldn’t issue any comment,” says a Buckingham Palace spokesman.’

  2. ” it functions much the same as the Manitoba Legislative Building does in North America: it is at the heart”-

    for more info on this concept and it’s encrypted symbolism check out

  3. whilst I don’t want to cast doubt on you assertions I would (and I’m sure Norman Foster would too) that the sun with its 32 ‘rays’ is, as with the bird, the central image on the flag of Kazakhstan. Thus I would aver this to be a more logical reasoning behind the central chambers table design.

    If it was the stars and stripes I might be more concerned but as it is their own flag in their new capitol I think the connection with Ra and sun worship is perhaps a point in case of ignoring the obvious

  4. Hi, just wanted to say Thank you for your brilliant, eye-opening videos, I can’t get enough. I was wondering if you have any research on sites in Africa or South Africa where I live? I love your work, so fascinating.

  5. I believe the word you’re looking for is “ascension” – not “assumption”…

    “as·cen·sion [uh-sen-shuhn]
    1.the act of ascending; ascent.
    2.the Ascension, the bodily ascending of Christ from earth to heaven.


    “as·sump·tion  [uh-suhmp-shuhn]
    1.something taken for granted; a supposition: a correct assumption. Synonyms: presupposition; hypothesis, conjecture, guess, postulate, theory.
    2.the act of taking for granted or supposing. Synonyms: presumption; presupposition.
    3.the act of taking to or upon oneself. Synonyms: acceptance, shouldering.
    4.the act of taking possession of something: the assumption of power. Synonyms: seizure, appropriation, usurpation, arrogation.

    1. There is another connection with Asuncion – a line from Treasure Island in San Francisco to Asuncion comes in at a perfect right angle to the line from Astana to Asuncion.

      Both points intersect at a small plaza ( 25°16’47.43″S, 57°38’4.58″W) , which has at its centre an obelisk.

  6. My mind is also blown away.
    This gives a whole new meaning to Borat!
    I started singing the Borat Hymn and then was reminded of Kuwait playing the wrong hymn for the shooting competition 23/03/2012.
    Is this also “coincidence”?

    Maybe Kazakhstan IS or will be the “greatest country in the world”

    Kazakhstan achieved 7 gold medals adding up to a total of 13 medals in these Olympics.

    Just “brainstorming”. Keep up the good work.

  7. Thought you might be interested in another geomantic relationship between Astana and one of your other favourite sites, Treasure Island in San Francisco.

    The center point of Treasure Island is exactly 33,000,000 inches, and 11,000,000 yards from the tip of the Astana pyramid. Nice. The center point of TI also seems to be indicated by the Enneagon that borders the edge of the island and the two edges that connect to it, as you pointed out in your SF piece.

    To top it off, there also seems to be a connection between this center point and the pyramid atop the government building in Canberra Australia, as it traces a line straight down one of the architectural edges of the building. There are lots of other interesting things going on in the Canberra architecture too, when you get a chance to take a look at it!

    1. Thank you Craig! It’s 33,000,000 feet rather than inches from the tip of the Astana pyramid to the center of Treasure Island. The center of TI is a baseball field and the datum point is home plate! This reminds me of the sacred geometry of Baseball piece of art I made a while back, showing the masonic foundations of this sport.

  8. Of course, feet, typo! 🙂

    The more you look at Astana, the more it seems to be a nexus for many important sites around the globe. For example, there is another interesting ground feature in Astana (51.113367 N, 71.442114 E) which has an obvious termination point at the center of the sun device, and an arrowed path that points directly at the dome of the rock, which is exactly 3,652km away; I believe clearly indicating 365.2 days!

    Plus many other connections, to Vatican city, Turin, Babylon, the Kaaba, Moscow, New Delhi, the Giza pyramids as you pointed out (which may also cut through the temple of the pheonix at Heliopolis which is another important Astana symbol), and I’m sure many more.

    One other Olympic connection which could be coincidental, a path from the center of the London Olympic stadium, around the globe to the Sydney Olympic stadium (which has a UFO fountain), passes directly through Astana, and almost through the stadium there. Future host of the Olympics maybe? 😉

    1. These are fantastic discoveries Craig! I notice that the distance from the Dome of the Rock to the throat chakra in Astana’s Vitruvian man is 3,652.42 km, a perfect solar number. Astana is poised to become the capital of the one world religion in my humble opinion.

      1. Nice! Hey, I went back and took another look at the Babylon connection and found that the distance between the Ishtar Gate and the presidential palace is another round number of 3,300,000 yards, again more 33’s.

        This is really interesting because a contemporary name for Ishtar is Astarte, and Ishtars age is described as Astartu. So with Asta-rte & Asta-rtu, any idea what Asta-na means? I’ve read that it’s name derives from “capital city” (yeah, right!) or “sublime threshold” or “royal port”, but with Ishtar & Asta-roth, the gates of hell sounds more likely.

        The physical interconnectedness of location, distance and angle that you see here (and at other places!) stretches credibility that it could be anything other than a master plan that’s being played out over millennia, no? I would love to get my hands on whatever blueprint ‘they’ are following!

        1. Brilliant findings Craig! You are rocking my world because I’m writing about these things and you are supplying me with just the right info as I need it. We are tapping into one cosmic mind.

        2. Something else to consider as you write this one up – I think at least one of the connections between Astana and Treasure Island (which you have to admit is pretty obscure!), and Astana and Ishtar is the relationship between 33 and 9. The 33’s of the spatial distances, and the 9’s at the locations.

          The Enneagon at San Francisco relates to nine, and the seat of Ishtar was Nineveh in Iraq, which incredibly is now Mosul – the “seat” of much of the fighting during the “war”. As you pointed out in Volume 2, there was clearly a secondary objective going on there. I’d like to do a bit more reading on Nineveh, I think it has more secrets to reveal.

          Oh, and 33 divided by 9 is of course 3.66 🙂

          1. Just read this (sorry, I don’t know anything about baseball!):

            Baseball has 9 innings and 9 players (often playing at 9-figure salaries – if we include the decimals), and figures the “bottom of the 9th” to be the last chance to win.

            Perhaps Astana is their last chance to win against us. Hilarious!


    1. “THE CONNECTION BETWEEN ASTANA, DENVER,AND ORDO CHINA” are the same people who run this planet – that’s all!

      It’s obvious from their use/abuse of “religion” and ritualistic symbolism that this organized center of power spans all the way across the centuries to the very beginning of civilization. Find who first created human beings and you will discover who “they” are!
