Thomas Achen's Cosmological Theory

  • In the beginning there was Primal Chaos
  • From the Primal Chaos came the giants and the gods
    • The only god to emerge straight from the Primal Chaos was Odin "The Great Asa Helter Skelter"
    • Odin was the real god behind the watered down story of Jesus and the judeo-christian god
    • He hung himself from the Tree of Wisdom for magical power and sacrificed himself on it to create the rest of the gods
  • The giants were white and hairy
    • They were the "first race"
    • There are still some left in North America and the Himalayas
    • They are also known as the "yeti"
  • The giants and gods interbred, creating the first humans
    • These demi-gods were both the great heroes of the ancients and the "nephilim"
    • They were the "second race"
    • They ruled the world from Atlantis
  • The giants retreated from the world of men to the highest peaks:
    • Arctic and Antarctic mountains
    • The Himalayas
  • After the Atlantis sunk there was the Great Flood
    • Humans spread all around the world and settled in the mountains
  • When the waters receded the humans spread again everywhere
    • Around the world they interbred with giants and animals. These are the "third race"
    • Achen gets really racist at this part.
      • Asian race was formed by interbreeding further with giants. The gods cursed the children into dwarves.
        • They then spread into the Americas too
      • The peoples of Middle East interbred with reptiles. The gods sent a false god (Loki = Jahve) to mislead them
      • The Africans interbred with monkeys. The gods cursed them with laziness
      • Only the "hyperboreans" in the North stayed pure
        • The elves taught them the secrets of science and occult sciences
        • Later the elves hid beneath the ground in the "Realm of the Worms"
        • The hyperboreans spread into Europe and North America. Their descendants were the aryans, the vikings and the lost blonde tribe of North American indians
          • The blonde tribe later retreated underground
  • After the "impure" human races spread, the world became tainted and unholy
    • To cleanse the world and to create a new one Ragnarok is coming
    • The sign of Ragnarok is the coming of the "planet of ice", as predicted by Hörbiger in his "Glazial-Kosmogonie"
      • The ice will start a flood and an ice age like before in the age of Atlantis
    • In the final battle against the giants only the bravest will survive and will become gods
      • They will inherit the new world, Valhalla
