The Dogon first appeared in the limelight amongst academics and researchers when it was revealed that they possess an inexplicably advanced astronomical understanding for such a primitive tribe. Living in a symbiotic relationship with the earth. They do not use technology, nor have a need for philosophy, sciences or literature. Focusing instead on spirituality, existing in a pure and harmonious relationship within nature.
Their “sacred knowledge” passed down in oral tradition throughout the many generations. More Mysteriously the Dogon knew the existence and location of the distant star – Sirius B. A white dwarf star invisible to the naked eye. A star that went undiscovered until its validation after the production of modern telescopes within the 1950’s. When asked how they gained such astronomical insight, the tribe revealed a fascinating tale of “the Nommos”. A race of beings from the Sirius star system, who visited the Earth thousands of years ago. The Nommos are described as half human, half amphibious, fish-like creatures.
Very similar to beings that appear within the mythologies of ancient Mesopotamia. Such as The Apkallu – seven demi-gods, sometimes described as part man and part fish. In the works of Berossus – a Hellenistic-era Babylonian writer from around the 3rd century bc; the Apkallu are described as “fish-men” sent by the gods to impart knowledge to people. first amongst them was the Babylonian God; Oannes : a Mesopotamian deity, said to be an amphibious hybrid creature who taught mankind wisdom. We can also find similarities in the Mesopotamian deity “Dagan”. A half fish, half man. Also known as “Dagon”. The ancient Egyptians associated the goddess “isis” with Sirius. The star could also be connected to Osiris, as well as Anubis and the goddess of Sirius, Sopdet, whose name means “she who is sharp.”
She brought fertility to the soil and was the consort of the entity known as Sah, the constellation Orion. Is this reoccurring theme of encounters with beings from the stars merely a mythological coincidence? Could it be possible that the dogon tribe were imparted knowledge from a group of beings from the Sirius star system? we can find traces of a correlating story throughout history; one that is documented all over the world within ancient civilisations, separated by vast oceans and thousands of years. This story documents the arrival of advanced beings. Ancient Aliens who came to the earth in spaceships and imparted wisdom to early humanity.
An account that was first acknowledged within the very beginnings of civilization, and since then, has been changed into multiple versions and interpretations throughout the ages. Yet ultimately: these stories are all one in the same. The events leading to how the Dogon acquired this knowledge are still debated today. how did they know about the white dwarf star sirius b? A star invisible to the naked eye, and only recently discovered within modern science. This question still remains a mystery.
