- Peter holding the Keys of Heaven and a book representing the gospel.
- KD: I view this book as an instruction manual for the keys.
Somehow, Vatican is never being asked to demonstrate the Keys of Saint Peter. That is most likely because these keys are not considered to be real. What does the narrative tell us?
- The Keys of Heaven refers to the image of crossed keys used in ecclesiastical heraldry, to represent the metaphorical keys of the office of Saint Peter, the keys of heaven, or the keys of the kingdom of Heaven.
- According to Catholic teaching, Jesus promised the keys to heaven to Saint Peter, empowering him to take binding actions.
- The keys of heaven or keys of Saint Peter are seen as a symbol of papal authority and are seen on papal coats of arms (those of individual popes) and those of the Holy See and Vatican City State.
- ...these are the keys of heaven, or the keys of the kingdom of Heaven.
Two Distinct Powers on EarthI understand that the stick on the right does not look much like a sword, but there were some pretty weird swords back in the day.
In my understanding, these two distinct powers are represented by the so-called Double-headed Eagle. There were two powers, but there was only one governing body. Later, by splitting this one governing body (on paper only) into two, the PTB was able to successfully present two separate empires - the Roman Empire and the Holy Roman Empire - while in reality, there was only one.
St. Peter and Pope Alexander VIThe bold dude in the middle is supposed to be Jacopo Pesaro. He was a bishop of Paphos in 1502. There are a few things we do not fully understand about them bishops of old.
- Pesaro was a member of the leading patrician Pesaro family, who was appointed by Pope Alexander VI a papal legate, commander of the Papal fleet in the region, and bishop of Paphos on Cyprus, a Greek island which was then a Venetian territory.
- Jacopo had done it: in 1502, he had recaptured the island of Santa Maura from the Turks, thereby earning his place in heaven. That’s the story Titian tells in this painting.
- Pesaro, a bishop and the commander of the papal fleet, kneels before St Peter following his victory.
- Pope Alexander VI stands behind him, blessing the hero. There are two coats of arms on Pesaro’s flag: his own and that of the pontiff. The latter commends Pesaro to St Peter for his victory.
- The keys to heaven glimmer at the Apostle’s feet, within the admiral’s reach. The helmet on the floor and the ships in the background
- Jacopo Pesaro was appointed by Pontifex Maximus Alexander VI - 16th century
- Pontius Pilate was appointed by Pontifex Maximus Tiberius - 1st Century
The painting above was allegedly commissioned by Bishop Jacopo Pesaro as an ex-voto for the Venetian naval victory leading to the retaking of Santa Maura from the Ottoman Turks.
- An ex-voto is a votive offering to a saint or to a divinity; the term is usually restricted to Christian examples. It is given in fulfillment of a vow (hence the Latin term, short for ex voto suscepto, "from the vow made") or in gratitude or devotion.
- I think this ex-voto is just another history altering tool used by the PTB.
- The fact that emperor Nero also had a title of Pontifex Maximus, was conveniently omitted from the public narrative. But the information is out there.
- Isn't it funny that wikipedia does not want to explain that P. M. on Nero's coins stands for Pontifex Maximus.
- Well, wikipedia is not the only narrative preserver we have.
- Roman emperors used titles like ‘Augustus’, ‘Caesar’ and ‘Imperator’. They also used the religious title of ‘Pontifex Maximus’.
- In other words, commander of the armies could simultaneously be Pontifex Maximus.
Of course, the image above is only a satire flier titled "The pope's sacrilege and Saint Peter's fury."
Back to the KeysThere are many different types of doors we use keys for. Keys open regular doors, start our machinery, grant access to encrypted data, etc. Why should Saint Peter's keys be any different? The PTB want us to think that these keys were metaphorical. Why should we believe them?
The above excerpt could raise some terminology questions. I can't help it, but think about some cargo cult of words and titles. We have doors, arches and keys. Could we be talking about some pre-existing tech we are not aware of? Something like this:
- Triumphal Arches, aka Ianuae Magicae: bridge portals between places, or regular structures?
- The Staff of Saint Bernardine of Siena
- And regular arches are often gates. Could those gates be... machines?
Here we have more examples of the so-called Seconda Macchina:
Terrarum, what could these keys look like, and what would they grant access to?
- Access to the Matrix controlling computer?
- How would they know that the words are being allegorical?
KD: The purpose of this article was to hypothesize that the Keys of Heaven are not some metaphorical symbol, but rather a real tool (kept in Vatican) used by the PTB to control/adjust our realm. Please feel free to share your opinion.
