Isis – Goddess of Darkness, and Chaos

isis vultureThe Goddess Isis was also known to the Sumerians as Tiamat, the Serpent of Chaos, the Ancient One, mother of the gods and all abominations of chaos. The Egyptian god Set was originally a female deity and was identified with Isis. Set is a god of the desert, storms, and foreigners in ancient Egyptian religion.

In later myths he is also the god of darkness, and chaos. Hence, the connection with the Sumerian Tiamat, the Serpent of Chaos, the Ancient One, mother of the gods and all abominations and Isis who we also know as Set, the god of darkness, and chaos.

Here is an excerpt from the book, “Psychology of the Unconscious: A Study of the Transformations and Symbolisms,” by Carl Gustav Jung and Beatrice M. Hinkle:

Isis, the mother of god, played an evil trick on the sun-god with the poisonous snake; also Isis behaved treacherously toward her son Horus in Plutarch’s tradition. That is, Horus vanquished the evil Typhon, who murdered Osiris treacherously (terrible mother= Typhon). Isis, however, set him free again. Horus thereupon rebelled, laid hands on his mother and tore the regal ornaments from her head, whereupon Hermes gave her a cow’s head. Then Horus conquered Typhon a second time. Typhon, in the Greek legend, is a monstrous dragon.”

In the bible scholars often associate the dragon with the devil and we find Isis had morphed into Typhoon which means “terrible mother” also associated with the dragon. The Sumerian Tiamat who is the Serpent of Chaos could be to some the equivalent what they may call the Devil and this would be where we later would get the Egyptian Set connection to Goddess Isis. They all did terrible things and are associated with serpents, darkness and chaos.

Isis, the Dark Goddess was also often depicted carrying a phallic object which identifies the male emblem with its solar origin as symbol of the Sun. Therefor, she carries the sun under he veil for she is the the Great Mother to the Son of the Sun, Horus who she also nurses on her breast for she is the Moon Goddess or the Goddess of darkness, and chaos.

The name Isis means “Throne” or “She of the Throne.” Her headdress is frequently shown with a a vulture resting on top of her head such as in the picture to the above left and in Egypt she was frequently called Man, and her totem there was a vulture. Below is the definition of vulture’s feeding habits from wikipedia

Vultures seldom attack healthy animals, but may kill the wounded or sick. When a carcass has too thick a hide for its beak to open, it waits for a larger scavenger to eat first.[4] Vast numbers have been seen upon battlefields. They gorge themselves when prey is abundant, until their crop bulges, and sit, sleepy or half torpid, to digest their food. They do not carry food to their young in their claws, but disgorge it from the crop. These birds are of great value as scavengers, especially in hot regions. Vulture stomach acid is exceptionally corrosive, allowing them to safely digest putrid carcasses infected with Botulinum toxin, hog cholera, and anthrax bacteria that would be lethal to other scavengers.[5] New World vultures often vomit when threatened or approached. Contrary to some accounts, they don’t ‘projectile vomit’ on their attacker as a deliberate defense, but it does lighten their stomach load to make take-off easier, and the vomited meal residue may distract a predator, allowing the bird to escape.[6] New World vultures also urinate straight down their legs; the uric acid kills bacteria accumulated from walking through carcasses, and also acts as evaporative cooling.

This is why you see the vulture as the headdress of Isis. Let us just say that she has a very tough and important job to do in the ecosystem we know of as our lives. More so than many people will ever know before the vulture may kill the wounded or sick.

Isis became very powerful deity in the late Egyptian dynasties of the Greeks and the Romans because of her magical skills. You will find that Cleopatra had always appeared in public clothed in a robe sacred to Isis and magic her central role as the Goddess of the Darkness and Chaos we know of as our current world.

    So many negative comments on this post, I couldn’t resist posting… The feminine and masculine are so misinterpreted by many posting in this thread. Nature vs nurture literally. In one regard, the masculine energy of love is always incremental. It rewards action of the individual as they progress spiritually. The feminine is always love, via passivity, until the spirit stops going forward. At that point, she shakes the individual awake (like Ahriman …Steiner)
    In our world, there is more of the carnal, ego fed energy and red pillar assimilation. We use brain power instead of heart power. This is evidenced through electric brain activity instead of electromagnetic heart energy. When someone follows their heart, they align with the blue pillar. In order to balance and become Christlike, we have to accept both fatherly love and motherly love in order to become enlightened. As for the dark, most would search only in light (false light) thinking they were finding truths, but for me the dark is where the gems are found. Names and images have twisted the supermundane into mundane. Simplicity is key. The heart never lies.

    I was tricked by Isis! She gained my trust then betrayed me! She spent a whole year in 2015 trying to weaken me. And I had a really good friend. Please let me know if you want an intelligent conversation. Don’t bother emailing me I never check that!

    If you had any wisdom whatsoever, you would speak with more respect and not refer to Isis as a ‘she-bitch’. You are coming across as very misogynistic and you are convinced that you alone have the absolute truth, which automatically means you do not. You seem to believe that God is all male and that the feminine Divine does not exist but is in fact evil. Am I wrong? I am trying to be respectful but the consistent message in your writing seems to be that men are good and women are evil. That is neither true nor acceptable.

    • Moe February 9, 2015 at 5:13 am - Reply

      Yes, you are wrong and I didn’t say I held all truths or I’m the supreme god of wisdom. News alert = This is my blog, my article and my research. If you had any common sense and reason you would clearly see that I DID NOT SAY THAT that Isis was a she bitch. The she bitch quote is from Ptolemy. This is NOT about men are better than women or vice versa. You have been fooled and bamboozled just like everyone else so don’t feel bad. Just FYI, the depiction of the gods and goddesses by gender has nothing to do with them being a woman or man. They simply represent how they manage their kingdoms and empires alchemically from the as above, and so below. She would be venus.

    Isis was no more the “goddess of darkness and chaos” than the Virgin Mary. If anything, Isis was about peace, serenity, and order. Her name, in Egyptian, is “weret-hekau” which means “great of magic.” That is why Cleopatra wore garments of Isis; to show her adoration. Do you think Cleopatra worshipped chaos?

    • Moe November 14, 2014 at 11:51 am - Reply

      No, you are simply wrong. Obviously you haven’t done your research like countless other people who have commented on this touchy subject. She was simply know as the Goddess of 10,000 names so to say she wasn’t this or that is an ignorant statement on its face. All these goddess figures represent the as above Venus, and the so below Sulfur Dioxide and sulfuric acid which is toxic as it controls toxic humans. Go back to your research and going after the evil Illuminati, lol….

      • bleak November 18, 2014 at 7:50 am - Reply

        Ha, who is ignorant? Sulfur is one of the alchemical elements and taken in that sense, is not “toxic.” The ancient land of Khem (Egypt) are far beyond your mentality. Or, maybe something else? Your reply reveals a lot as it is hostile while my comment was not. Something to hide?

        • Moe November 18, 2014 at 9:43 am - Reply

          ha, you are but again! I said Sulfur Dioxide and sulfuric acid, NOT just Sulfur and YES, Sulfur Dioxide and sulfuric acid are HIGHLY toxic to humans. Hell is said to smell like burning sulfur and is often referred to in the Bible as “brimstone”, and is a symbol of perpetual torment and destruction. However, Brimstone is just an alternative name for sulfur and the Old French word Sulfur is derived from the Latin sulphur, meaning “to burn”. Brimstone, is derived from the Old English (Saxon) Brenne-stone and is also called, quia igne accenditur; a stone that burns or a burning stone.

          God made it an instrument of his vengeance on the heathen and other delinquents. See Ps. xi. 6; Deut. xxix. 23; and Jude ver. 7 and Isaiah, speaking of the enemies of the church, under the designation of Edom, and their destiny, ch. xxxiv. 9, says,
          “And her torrents shall be turned into pitch,
          And her dust into sulphur:
          And her whole land shall become burning pitch.”

          Our bodies are made of 70% water and this sulfur dioxide will react with water or steam to produce toxic and corrosive fumes. When the liquid is heated Sulfur dioxide may release irritating, toxic Sulfur dioxide gas. This same process must be occurring in our bodies when larger quantities are being released in our blood that become heated when we are stressed, angry or living contrary to natural law. Due to its high solubility, sulfur dioxide is rapidly distributed throughout the body, producing metabolic acidosis with a reduction in the blood alkali reserve, compensatory elimination of ammonia in the urine, and alkali in the saliva.
          This reaction in the blood from sulfur dioxide may very well be what causes the reduction in the blood alkali reserve, which then allows diseases such as heart disease that leads to heart attacks and also other diseases such as cancer.

          These hellish scientific facts and biblical clues of living a life ruled by vice, in which we create our own purgatory that smells of a lake of fire via burning sulfur simply cannot be ignored, but that is exactly what is happening.

          In the United States, the Center for Science in the Public Interest lists the two food preservatives, sulfur dioxide and sodium bisulfite, as being safe for human consumption except for certain individuals who may be sensitive to them, especially in large amounts.

          How stress creates hell in the body via homocysteine and sulfur:

          A study from 1999 found that mild psychological stress can temporarily increase blood levels of a chemical associated with the development of heart disease. The study found that brief periods of stress increased blood levels of the amino acid homocysteine. Research over the past 20 years has found that an even moderately elevated levels of homocysteine is a risk factor, for High levels of homocysteine include increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, and blood clots, in both men and women. “This is the first study to show that behavioral factors may influence homocysteine levels,” said Catherine Stoney, author of the study and a professor of psychology at Ohio State University.’

          Simply put, to be healthy you must manage the chemical such as cysteine, which is fundamental to prevent protein aging. If you truly work at having less stress in your life or internal anger (forgive and forget), you can prolong your life.
          Have you ever heard of the Cysteine Chapel?

          I worship the true God, Yahweh, AKA Jupiter and NOT Venus. No, nothing to hide. Just destroying lies, liars and the ignorant with the light of truth is all. You were the one who came to my website attempting to correct me. Not the other way around. Carry on and think what you want. and let me live in the light as I choose. Thanks in advance.

    I don’t think you have the mythology of Isis correct, there is too much hostility in your description towards females. However, Jennai is incorrect as the Catholic church got most their Maru imagery from Isis images and some people argue they are the same. Whatever the case, this website is funny.

      These are stories of As Above, So Below planet Venus which 99.9% of people such as yourself do not seem to understand. My point was to bring forth research on the Goddess that no one else seems to understand, nor want to look at because it doesn’t serve their needs or emotional desires. If this was said about a man or man God, you wouldn’t think twice about it but since this doesn’t serve your make believe world, then this website is funny when in reality, you are funny because you speak as if you know, but you simply have no idea.

      Isis was the god of love and war and sometimes called a she-bitch. Last time I checked, love often makes people cry and war is but hell on earth and she-bitches can be unruly harlots who make men cry. Hence, you may want to rethink your illogical theory on Isis.

    Other sources claim Isis is the goddess of magic, love, nature and domestication. Why is yours different from all the others?

    • Moe July 28, 2014 at 7:44 am - Reply

      I have written other articles on Isis that state just that, but she is also known as the Goddess with 10,000 names or Isis Panthea (”Isis the All-Goddess”). Isis declares, “I am Isis, the great Goddess, the Mistress of Magic, the Speaker of Spells,” and on monuments “I am in the constellation of the Dog.” It is said that the sister and companion of Isis is the wicked Typhon, who put the husband of Isis, Osiris to death. The name Typhon means “wicked mother.” This is just another name for Isis to describe her wicked ways as the Queen of Hell and also the Wicked Mother of the Son of the Sun God, Horus. Diodorus Siculus notes, that it was on account of the dog’s adherence to Isis, when she was seeking the body of Osiris, killed by Typhon. For this reason dogs were led before the pomps of Isis. The howling of them was ever an omen of death; their barking at night was a bad prognostick; and it was deemed unfortunate to meet a black one, more especially a pregnant bitch. Hence, why she later took the name of Hecate, the sorceress ‘she-dog’ or ‘bitch.’

        You are working for the catholic church. This is what they have done to Isis, taken her in all her glory and make something evil of her. You are ‘demonic’. Isis was the creator of religion and the concept of one God. The catholic church stole every thing she accomplished but as she is the God child she sees still all. One day she will rule again. She was the one captured, beaten and crucified by the Romans. This is why Egypt and the Romans went to war after they murdered her. Her body was never found in the tomb because Horus her son demanded that it is given back to Egypt. The Romans stole her identity and her life and created this man God (that never was) called Jesus. They will pay with their souls and all who worship the man God shall follow them into the burning fire of hell!

        I thought isis was of dual nature one of which you speak of and one you say catholics seak of…that is dual person…which often creates chaos and division and these posts prove it well…everyone is evolved in her cult of magic, in her hidden truth or darkness uncertain which is exactly what this cult symbol is known for..hdr ability to change her image to Mary with child you claim the Catholics stole…god, gods. Goddesses, are all cults…so whats the point? This website proves what isis represents to a tee…love, magic, hidden meanings and mostly chaos and division. Pretty clever fr a mut or she bitch or goddess of love or magic huh?

        She really is a typhon like said and if adopted the pagan cult name of mary to change her name from the greek god name and behavior she represented as Hecate….cults and religions evolve and change direction to appeal to the masses just like their propoganda….Howard Stern s opposing views, the Star Sirius alignment and his symbol of the dog fr his radio broadcast all symbols of isis, the she bitch goddess cult…see modern day cultism in the form of radio broadcast….some say its truth and enlightment some say his broadcasts are evil and filth…they create confusion of the christian norm…chaos thinking, rebellion…..dualism….truth and evil…enlightenment and chaos….isis….clever modern day cultism broadcast over the radio direct signs of isis goddess cult influence? Hows about them apples!

            Foreigners are welcomed by Isis with dualism and those favored by a mono cult ideology worship the same duality hidden in Mary which they are ignorant of…original clay commandments….do not worship idols nor their ideology I would assume….stick to basic rules made by man on a clay tablet not from divine cult ystism you ll probably be okay! And if you dnt believe thats yr right to according to non religious law called u.s. constitution….I m not a believer personally in any of this crap but the masses need their idols to cling to and their cults to feel safe and warm and fuzzy what ever it may be…..

          No, it is a website about truth. Not make believe fairy tales that serve your false beliefs. The modern religion of the goddess is based on war, chaos and magic. If you actually studied this you would know the Goddess is Venus in all mythology because she is the Goddess of 10,000 names and I bet you don’t even know why the Goddess is connected to Venus, do you? Did you know that the Christians known as Catholics venerate Mary and who do you think Mary represents Ms. Not So Great Mother?
