(i.e., most of the obscenely wealthy & the 1%)
(Roman Piso, 05-12-2016)
What does it take to do the kind of work with ancient genealogies that I and a few others have? It takes time and dedication, and intense focus. After many years of observation and actual reconstruction of various ancient genealogies, it has now become second-nature to me. I’ve trained myself to know, almost by instinct, how to get the answers to complete various ancient genealogies that others would have abandoned and simply given up on; and I have completed them in many instances, in only a few hours. I remember when I had no idea where to look or what to look for. So, I have come a very long way indeed.
There are several key items that I have learned that are essential to finding out just where an individual had belonged in terms of time, place and family. One of the main things that I had discovered is that all of these were left to be discovered, on purpose. That is, deliberately. They were made difficult, but not impossible. That is because the individuals who left these records, did so purposefully. Now, how and why would they do this, or even be able to? That is what anyone working with these genealogies should know before they even start.
Today, we are hearing a lot of talk about ‘oligarchy’. And many people today, imagine that it only really applies to certain wealthy families today; but they are not used to thinking of that in terms of our past history; at least not in a universal sense. But that is exactly what the case was. Who were the “us” and “them” of the past? Who were the “haves” and the “have nots”? Well, think about it. It was most certainly the royalty who were the “haves”, it was not the common people. It was royalty who were keeping track of not only their own ancestry, but also of their fellow royals.
To make the type of world in which ancient royalty needed in order to preserve what they had gained, that ‘edge’ over non-royals, wealth, privilege, and power, they needed to create an alternate reality for those who were not royal; in order to placate them and keep them in their place. That is, to prevent them from uprising and overthrowing them.
So, they made it appear that royals and other leaders of all kinds came from the general populace, that they could rise from the ranks, and that they, the royals, were not perpetually protecting the royal ‘right’ of their privileged families. And one way of doing that was to make it appear that those who were writing were of all walks of life, that there was not a monopoly on it by royalty; but that is exactly what was happening. Royalty were the only ones who were leaving us written records, while making it appear that this was not so. And, they were not writing about anonymous commoners, but about their own family and their fellow royals.
Now, once a researcher such as myself realizes this, we then understand that they also left both answers and clues to unravel just who they were. It was purposeful. They not only wrote the histories of their own families and left accounts of their individual actions, but they also made a point of protecting and preserving them; which is why so many of them have survived to this day. Granted, some were lost along the way, but one way that they got around this was to cross-reference much of their work. That is, they gave more than one account of various family members by making use of alias names for those individuals. Case in point, Arrius Calpurnius Piso. He and his family had created a number of alternate names for him. So many, in fact, that I doubt that even I yet know all of them.
When his family and descendants wrote about him, they wrote about him via his various alias names. He was written about as Arrius Antoninus, an ancestor of the emperor Marcus Aurelius. He was written about as Flavius Josephus, Apollonianus Of Tyana, and as grandfather of Herodes Atticus. He was the founder of the Annii Anicii, and the Annii Verii. So, various royal lines trace back to him via those and other lines. In fact, all of the Roman Emperors from Antoninus Pius on, all descended from Arrius Calpurnius Piso. And, since he was the main creator of Christianity, and the Christian Church, all of the popes up (at least) to near modern to modern times, also descended from him. This was not conspiracy, it was oligarchy on a grand scale. It had been in place since the earliest days of the creation of royalty many thousands of years ago. But was also actively innovated or ‘improved’ upon or refined, over the course of history.
Having the overview that I have gained over time, I can see what various members of the lines descending from Arrius Piso were working towards and sometimes, achieved. They did not always agree upon what they were doing or what course to take. But when they did, and were resolved to do something, they made certain to succeed. To understand much of what I have found one must have a very complex understanding of various individuals and what their plans were.
Constantine is one example of that. His concern was to improve upon what his ancestor Arrius Piso did regarding the creation of Christianity. But to do this, his idea was to destroy those whom he considered his enemies; the Jews. Arrius Piso and his family had set out to destroy the Jews, as they were witnesses to his creation of Christianity. And thus, could expose it as fraud. However, the Jews were not completely wiped out. Many had survived and were living in the East, in and around Persia. To Constantine, this presented a problem as he wanted to expand and ingrain Christianity within society.
To understand just why he wanted to do that, one must realize why Christianity was created in the first place. And that, is rather complex to explain fully as well. But basically, there had been a war going on. Originally, that war was between certain factions of the Jews themselves. But over time, it drew in certain Roman leaders as well, so that it became a war between certain Romans and certain Jews. It became a war between Arrius Piso (as well as his family and supporters), and the Pharisees and their supporters. And to better understand this, one must know just what was being fought over.
The Pharisees and their supporters were much like what we think of as humanists today. They were about basic human rights and an end to slavery. But those who wanted to preserve slavery and enjoy the wealthy, privileged lives that they were used to, did not want to lose the way of life that they were used to for hundreds of generations. The Pharisees were fighting for the common people; for their basic rights as human beings and for an end to slavery. That, is what the war was being fought over.
Christianity, was created as a means to give the common people an alternate reality to believe in, and to placate them and slaves; to make them not desire what the Pharisees were fighting to give them. It was also ‘loaded’ with what amounted to a “wish list” of things that the greedy royals wanted. And that, is why Constantine wanted to spread Christianity and rid the world of those who might expose it as fraud.
This is the reason that Constantine wanted to expand and fortify the Eastern regions of the Roman Empire and why he established another Roman capital city in the East, Constantinople. He had been working on a way to get rid of the remaining Jews in the East, who were living beyond the borders of the Roman Empire. And the way that he figured upon doing this was to create another religion that would cause the Arabs to kill the Jews for him. That religion was Islam. But it backfired and did not work out in the way that Constantine had imagined. Yes, Islam was not an original Eastern religion. It
was created by Romans – the descendants of those who had also created Christianity.
Now, the reason that I state this here is not to make a case or convince anyone of this, but because I want the reader to understand just what the true nature of ancient history and ancient genealogies actually is. That is, the context in which to understand them. I want you to understand the oligarchy and what actually went on behind the scenes within the Inner-Circle and which you would never learn by superficial readings of ancient texts.
The reason that this is important to know while working on these genealogies is because in order to do this as they did, they had to be in full control of everything that was being written. And they did. Again, not just anyone could become an author and write for public consumption; only royals could. And they kept it that way for thousands of years. This is why it was important for them to continue a united consolidation of royalty, or the preservation of the royal Inner-Circle. Constantine was doing what he did in order to achieve this. But it ended up being a royal blunder. From his point of view, he was doing what he thought he needed to do.
The idea for Islam came from Constantine, his family and relatives, but was not implemented until many years after his death. Another thing to know is, as I had mentioned earlier, all of the popes of that time were descendants of Arrius Piso – and therefore, relatives of Constantine. It is also important to know that there were families to the East who had close ties to the royal descendants of Arrius Piso in the West. For instance, there had always been an alliance there between the Roman Emperors and the royal families in Syria and Armenia, as well as other countries to the East.
For hundreds of years, the Pisos had been Roman governors of Syria and had intermarried with the royal Syrian and Armenian rulers. The proof of this, ironically, can be found in their genealogies. Anyway, such plans as the creation and promotion of religion, did not happen overnight. Thus, it took some time before Islam could be perfected for the purpose it was created for, and then actually implemented and promoted.
The idea, for instance, for Christianity, came from an idea for a new religion to replace Judaism. It was pieced together by ancestors of Arrius Piso and was nearly put to an end by Nero before Arrius Piso could make it into what he wanted. The beginning of the actual work on the new religion, later to be known of as Christianity, had begun with the creation of a committee to do so, in Tiberias, near the shores of the Sea Of Galilee, and was instituted by order of the emperor Tiberius at the request of the Herodian rulers in Judea (who were the leaders of the Sadducean sect of the Jews).
Again, the leaders of the royal Inner-Circle descendants of Arrius Piso felt that they needed to preserve and improve their grip of power upon the world. This is why when Charlemagne became emperor, he had the idea of creating a Holy Roman Empire. And that Empire or Reich, would last until Napoleon brought it down in 1806 (see my paper, ‘Napoleon & The Holy Roman Empire’). It rose again in 18711918. It was the actual cause of WWI and that 2nd Reich had ended in 1918 with the end of WWI. However, it rose yet again, as the 3rd Reich. And as we all know, ended in 1945 with the end of WWII.
After the end of WWII, royals lost that unification that they once had. However, they diversified and still existed to some extent. They are now the oligarchs that control most of our world’s wealth and resources, without the majority of them having royal titles or being in charge of certain regions of the world. Thus, it is now much more difficult to identify them, other than the huge amount of wealth that they possess. Though they may not still have royal titles, they still have genealogical ties to royalty, and can trace their descent from Arrius Piso.
Recently, a girl had done some work for a school project on the ancestry of the American Presidents. She found that all but one of them could trace their ancestry back to John Lackland, an ancestor of King James I of England. George Washington was offered the title of King, but refused it as he said that he did not want the United States to become a monarchy. But apparently, the Inner-Circle members who came to live in the United States still wanted their own in charge.
