This concept of “Gateworking” extends back to ancient times when the priests worked alongside the ANUNNAKI in maintaining the Star-Gates of these “Sky-Gods,” (or “Star-Gods” or “Astral Gods” depending on semantics) places where glamour and mystique have since been lost when their power was deactivated and/or forgotten. These buildings were commonly stepped-pyramids built in seven stages and possessing seven main sections on their ascent. The most important (for our purposes) being the E.TEMEN.AN.KI or “Foundation Bond of Heaven and Earth” and another being the E.SAGILA (or ISAGILA), the official shrine-temple of MARDUK in BABYLON. The BABILI formula becomes increasingly important to follow for these structures to possess their authenticity.

The “Ladder of Lights” system of self-initiation that has been alluded to in revivals of Egypto-Babylonian traditions are also symbolic in nature. As in “speculative Freemasonry,” no literal “stairway” is attempted in “astral pathworking” and attention is transferred from the temple-shrine as a physical structure to the temple-shrine as the physical body (personal Self), a microcosm, literally a “miniature universe” unto itself. [Of course, this is not to say that physical manifestations of these Temples and Star-Gates could not be recreated physically — or that such efforts have not already been under way…]
This method grew in popularity in the Egypto-Babylonian Hermetic mysteries and, of course, the Chaldean and Mithraic traditions (and Zoroaster or Zarathustra) of older pre-dynastic models have a relatively higher focus on physical construction. It later became an important function of the priest and priest-king to oversee maintenance of (already built) temple-shrines as well as the activation of the symbolic-astral (energetic) “veils” or “layers” of the individual body-temples of the population.
The “Precession of the Gates” becomes the next topic in question. The “traditional” order familiar to prior devotees of Simonian Necronomics is valid for it’s purposes, but somehow in the world of form, in the physical construction of the Gates, the order is directly opposite from our vantage point. Additional lore coupled with this offers a few key complimentary suggestions. Firstly, that there are two sets (realizations or experiences) of “Gates” as is mirrored in the Semitic vision of the same “genetic tree” or Kabbalah one of “life and order” and another of “death and chaos,” but both under the watchful “Eye” of the One. Secondly, logic suggests that any series of thresholds placed in a successive order, such as this, is either single-directional, or again, subject to relative interpretation.
In our traditional case of creating “astral shields” over our “spirit-form” (such as was done originally to bind the spirit form into the “matrix” of light rays that is called “physical existence”) a Seeker works from the “first gate” as a base to begin self-initiation (or purification and re-dedication), in this case, the Moon. But, when we stand at the base of the physical Gate to the Gods, we are standing at the “Step of the Saturn Gate”, meaning that the tradition was designed first of and for the ANUNNAKI, themselves, for when “they” descend, from the top of the “ladder”, the first gate “they” come into contact with is the Moon. The lunar veil is also what most have experienced as the astral or “dreamscape” and so it is considered in many ways to be the most “accessible” or ‘nearest’ to the human range of experience of them all.
The ANUNNAKI must take on or “put on” their form in order to appear and interact as entities in the matrix of our existence. We, in turn, must remove these fantastic energies from our Self cumulatively to ascend the system. Implications of this show a new purpose to the personal “Gate-work” often called the “Ladder of Lights.” When performed with the common intention in mind, as alluded to in past works describing the Necronomicon Cycle, the “ascent” up the Ladder of Lights is meant to purify and amplify the shells over our “egg” of spiritual existence (Divine Spark) that gives us our identity in the world of form. However, working the pathway of the system backwards, back to the Source, can actually allow the dissolution of the “identity” in the “light matrix,” peeling away the layers of glamour attached to programmed existence like an onion…
