The Quran Connection


The reasons for suspecting that the Quran could be of alien authorship extend beyond its contents and beyond the highly unusual method of its delivery to Muhammad. The life of Muhammad (570 CE to 632 CE) equates with dates that the archaeologists have given us for construction of the Nazca Lines and for the cultural explosion in the city of Tiwanaku. Click on the Tiwanaku link above for details. Moreover, the historian Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa, in his History of the Incas (1572), has given us the time frame 565 CE to 665 CE for appearances of the sun bird Inti, who flies in the air and accurately predicts the future. Sarmiento affirms the accuracy of these dates by connecting them with European kings and popes of their respective epoch.

In view of a correlation in timing between the construction of the Nazca Lines in Peru and Muhammad's encounter with the archangel Gabriel in Arabia, it may be worthwhile to consider the possibility that the alien astronaut of the Andes wrote the Quran (Koran) and then fabricated the archangel Gabriel to deliver it to Muhammad. Of course, many other explanations are possible, such as:

a) Allah created the Quran and then got the archangel Gabriel to verbally transmit it to Muhammad (who was illiterate) over the course of approximately 23 years. This is what Muslims believe.

b) Muhammad was merely hallucinating and the archangel never appeared. However, the Quran was certainly no hallucination, and it is doubtful that Muhammad could have constantly deceived his followers into believing this story — ongoing for more than two decades — if in fact it was utterly baseless.

c) Muhammad himself concocted the Quran and then claimed it was transmitted to him by Gabriel. However, Muslim scholars make a good point when they say that the Quran is so magnificent — both linguistically and thematically — that it is doubtful that the entire Arab nation working in collaboration could have produced such a book in the seventh century.

This leaves us with either Allah or the alien astronaut as the best explanation, and we have to look elsewhere for information that could help resolve the issue in favor of one or the other.

I never had any special interest in Muhammad and it was purely by accident that I encountered him in my investigations. At the time, I was only probing into the origins of a book referred to as the Revelations of Elijah (also known as the book of revelations, the heavenly book, the book of light, the cabala and perhaps a few other names), a clandestine text belonging to a group of medieval mystics known as the Cabala (transferring the name of the book to the entire sect though such has never been unambiguously recorded).

Unlike the Muslims, the cabalists never wrote with clarity of expression: their abundant literature was entirely abstruse. Their first fundamental text was the Sefer Yetzirah (the Book of Creation, also known as the Book of Abraham). Some scholars say it was written in the second century and others say it first appeared in the ninth century. Their second fundamental text was the Sefer ha-Bahir (the Book of Brightness). Some scholars say it was written in France in the 12th century and others say that parts of it were written in Babylonia many centuries earlier. Their third fundamental text was the Sefer ha-Zohar (the Book of Splendor). Some scholars say it was written in Spain during the 13th century and others say it was written in the Holy Land during the second century. These are not minor discrepancies. It is clear that the cabalists were an extremely secretive sect and that with respect to the origins of the Cabala, there is little consensus among scholars.

But I happened to know a few things about the Cabala that these scholars did not know: I found evidence that the medieval cabalists were in possession of a text that I, seeing signs of time travel, believed to have been of alien origin, and that text indirectly dated itself to the late 6th century. I was then able to read the mystic (cryptic) writings of the cabalists in a different light, making a profound study of the Works of the Chariot sections of the Sefer ha-Bahir and Commentaries on the Sefer Yetzirah by Saadia Gaon, Isaac the Blind, and Nachmanides. Also helpful were the writings of cabala pioneer Gershom Scholem who was the first to encounter references to the Revelations of Elijah.

All of that led me to the conclusion that the Cabala originated between the late sixth and early seventh centuries when, as the cabalists believed, the Lord decided to fulfill His biblical promise: "I shall send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord." The prophet Elijah made numerous fiery descents in his Chariot, delivering, apparently one "volume" at a time, the Book of Revelations to Judaic scholars in a Babylonian desert. Indeed, the beginnings of the Geonim and their academies roughly correspond to the time of Muhammad's encounters with Gabriel, and Babylonia was relatively close to Muhammad's Arabia. Moreover, Elijah the prophet and Gabriel the angel were both described as luminous (suggesting the use of holograms). Regarding sound, Gabriel spoke in an "imperious" voice, and Elijah's speech, glorifying the Lord, echoed in the desert.

It must be noted that Muhammad's angel was quite unlike the winged children we see depicted in the religious paintings of the Christians.

Muhammad and angel Gabriel

And not quite like this depiction either. Muhammad reported that Gabriel's stretched-out wings covered the entire mountain! A mere case of mistaken identity must therefore be ruled out.

The Revelations of Elijah (of which thirty-nine passages are still extant), however, are wholly silent on the theme of authorship of the Quran. But my investigation into the origins of the Revelations turned up a big surprise. Elijah the prophet delivered more than just the Revelations to those scholars in the desert. Elijah also delivered the Sefer Yetzirah, which of course explains why this book was widely believed (in cabalistic circles) to be of divine origin. Consequently, the Sefer Yetzirah — in addition to the Revelations — may have been written by the alien astronaut, giving us another place to look for clues on authorship of the Quran.

The first sentence of the Sefer Yetzirah reads as follows:

Into thirty-two mysterious paths of wisdom did (he/it) engrave Yah, Lord of the Legions, God of Israel, God of Life, King of the Ages, All-powerful God, Creator of Good, Dwelling in the Heights, Dwelling in Eternity, Holy Be His Name, and create (his/its) world with three books: written, numerical, and verbal.

Pistorius' translation of the last three words into Latin was Scriptis, numeratis, pronunciatis.

The cabalists identified the written rendering as pertaining to the Revelations of Elijah (deemed written in heaven by the archangel Metatron and merely delivered by Elijah). And they identified the numerical rendering as pertaining to the Sefer Yetzirah itself, since this book, deemed written by Abraham, was essentially a numerical account of creation via combinations of the letters of the Hebrew alphabet. As for the verbal rendering, they concluded that this had to be the Book of Moses (Torah), now deemed to have been verbally dictated to Moses on Mount Sinai. But that makes little sense. Moses was too distant in time to be part of singular authorship of the three books. The verbal rendering therefore has to be the Quran, verbally transmitted to Muhammad on the Mountain of Light.

Was the Quran transmitted by an alien astronaut?

On whether the Quran was authored by Allah or by an alien astronaut, the preponderance of evidence tends to favor the astronaut. This evidence includes indications that Muhammad's contact with the angel Gabriel was not an isolated supernatural event.

Note that the Quran provides a cross-reference. It refers to the "Books of Abraham and Moses" though, to this day, most Muslims seem to be unaware of any book that can be attributed to Abraham.

The Quran and the Sefer Yetzirah were evidently designed to be read by people with the mentality of the seventh century, and consequently they are far from what we might expect an extraterrestrial to write. On a closer look, however, those two books can be viewed as powerful instruments of behavior modification.

SEFER YETZIRAH (translation by Kaplan)

"Ten Sefirot of Nothingness: ten and not nine, ten and not eleven. Understand with Wisdom, and be wise with understanding. Discern with them, and know, think and depict."

Among other things, the Sefer Yetzirah is suspected of having influenced the introduction of Arabic numerals which greatly facilitated modern sciences.


"He grants wisdom to whom He pleases, and whoever is granted wisdom has indeed been granted abundant good; and none would be reminded except those endowed with understanding."

Like the Sefer Yetzirah, the Quran heavily promotes wisdom and understanding. And among other points of interest, Islamic scholars claim that the Quran alludes to the existence of life on other planets:


"And among His signs is the creation of heavens and the earth, and the living creatures that He has scattered through them."

The Quran refers to Elijah most notably in the verse "Peace be on Elias and his people" (Elias is the Greek form of Elijah), which seems rather ironic in view of the contemporary Islamic-Judaic conflict. A special curiosity is whether "the shining Book" (found elsewhere in the Quran) could be alluding to the Revelations of Elijah given that there are hints in the medieval literature that this book emitted light.

The Elijah Hologram

A detailed description of Elijah and his Chariot (disguised in an extraneous context) may have survived in a book called the New Atlantis (our analysis reveals it to be an English translation (1627) of an earlier Latin work subsequently printed under the titles Novus Atlas and Nova Atlantis). The text refers to Eliam Messiae and amply describes a cabalist known as Isaac Luria, so there is reason to believe that Luria himself was the source of the following description:

"He was a man of middle stature and age, comely of person, and had an aspect as if he pitied men. He was clothed in a robe of fine black cloth, with wide sleeves and a cape. His under garment was of excellent white linen down to the foot, girt with a girdle of the same; and a sindon or tippet of the same about his neck. He had gloves, that were curious, and set with stone; and shoes of peach-coloured velvet. His neck was bare to the shoulders. His hat was like a helmet, or Spanish montera; and his locks curled below it decently: they were of colour brown. His beard was cut round, and of the same colour with his hair, somewhat lighter. He was carried in a rich chariot without wheels, litter-wise; with two horses at either end, richly trapped in blue velvet embroidered; and two footmen on each side in the like attire. The chariot was all of cedar, gilt, and adorned with crystal; save that the fore-end had panels of sapphires, set in borders of gold; and the hinder-end the like of emeralds of the Peru colour. There was also a sun of gold, radiant, upon the top, in the midst; and on the top before, a small cherub of gold, with wings displayed..."

Perhaps this cherub became Metatron, the heavenly scribe, here guiding Elijah on his descents to deliver the revelations that Metatron engraved into fragments of the primordial light on behalf of the Lord.

Take special note of the radiant sun up on top and in the midst. In the ancient Andes, the flying bird (the alien astronaut) was called Inti, a word meaning sun, and symbolically represented by a radiant sun. This radiant sun later appeared on Andean flags and can still be seen on the flag of Argentina. For the Old World, Wikepedia writes "Starting in the fifth century, Elias is often connected with Helios, the Sun." But according to our investigations, this association should have started during the lifetime of Muhammad.

According to Morten St. George, in the early 12th century the Revelations of Elijah fell into possession of French Cathars, a Christian sect, where they became known as the Prophecies of Merlin, and from there some of the revelations were translated and incorporated into the Prophecies of Nostradamus in the 16th century. For more information, see Shakespeare: The Nostradamus Connection and follow-up pages Merlin – 1 and Merlin – 2.

St. George has provided a detailed summary of his research into a connection between the Revelations of Elijah (as extracted from Nostradamus) and the writings of the medieval Cabala on his French-language website, available here. Given that the layout of the Revelations inside Nostradamus has cabalistic structure, St. George suspects that the cabalist Isaac Luria may not have died in 1572 as commonly believed.

Unlike the case of the Cabala, where some of the conclusions derive from interpretation of abstruse writings, everything that was said in this article about Muhammad, the Quran and the archangel Gabriel comes from online Islamic sources.
