In he returned to university, where he attended the lectures of Marcel Mauss and Marcel Cohen. Intrigued by anthropology, he gave up plans for a technical career. Between and Griaule participated in two large-scale ethnographic expeditions—one to Ethiopia and the ambitious Dakar to Djibouti expedition which crossed Africa. On the latter expedition he first visited the Dogon , the ethnic group with whom he would be forever associated. Throughout the s Griaule and his student Germaine Dieterlen undertook several group expeditions to the Dogon area in Mali.

The Dogon revealed some of their cosmological science through their interaction with two French anthropologists: Marcel Griaule and Germaine Dieterlen. The Dogon have been the center of anthropological debate, for they have knowledge of the Sirius Star system that Western Scientist was able to confirm only by using high powered telescopes.
The debate has centered on the fact that the Dogon know details about the dwarf companion of Sirius A, whom they call Sigi Tolo. The Dogon priests can detail the rapid rotation, 50 year orbital cycle, small size, and immense power of Po Tolo - Sirius B - with great accuracy.
Therefore, the fact is often overlooked that the Dogon have described in great detail and accuracy the structure and nature of our entire galaxy and how we Earthlings fit into it. A breakdown of the key cosmological and astrophysical truths expressed in Dogon High Science is as follows: Amma is the Dogon name for Amen. Amma is described as the Intelligent Consciousness behind all of Creation and the Awareness within all beings.
The Po is the Black Hole that is the core of our galaxy. Po means seeds in the Dogon language. The Dogon describe the Po as the smallest thing in the world, alluding to the fact that the matter of a Black Hole is the densest, most compact form of matter in Creation.
It spins and scatters all particles of matter in a sonorous and luminous motion, yet remains inaudible and invisible. The Clavicles of Amma refer to the spiral nebula arms that define the shape of the galaxy. The clavicle is the First bone to appear in the skeletal system of developing embryos.
It grows in a sickle-type arch very similar to the shape of the arms of our spiral galaxy. Po Tolo is seen as a double of the Po, meaning that Black stars such as Sirius B act very similar to Black Holes; it appears as if it has the same effect on space and time as Blacks Holes, only on a much lesser scale of manifestation. Po Tolo is also made of the smallest and heaviest of things, which the Dogon describe as a metal called Sagala. One pebble of Sagala would weigh several tons.
Because Po Tolo is so massive it shapes and moulds the structure of space and time in our realm. This is the star astronomers refer to as Sirius A. The Dogon say that the sacrificial blood of Sigi Tolo spills onto the Womb of Amma, and is renewing, impregnating, and purifying this realm of creation.
As stated, the debate among the Western-minded concerning the Dogon has centered on the fact that the Dogon know details about the dwarf companion of Sirius A. However, in this brief survey of Dogon descriptions of celestial objects, it can be seen that they have knowledge as to how the entire galaxy is structured, not just the closest star system.
Dogon cosmology and Kemetic sacred science are very similar in concepts and symbolism. In fact, Dogon cosmology appears to be the exact cosmology of the Kemetic priesthood at Annu Ancient Hermopolis. The spiraling vibrations caused four clavicles to grow forth from the Po.
In hue-mans, clavicles are the First bones to form in a hue-man embryo. The celestial clavicles that grow from the Po are the spiral nebulae arms that extend from the galactic core and define the shape of our spiral galaxy. Suddenly, the Po burst forth, and eight new seeds were created.
Amma planted these seeds in Its egg near the clavicles of the Po. With these eight seeds, Amma intended to create eight celestial beings - four male and four female. The Nommo are the first beings created by Amma, and they are amphibious celestial creatures. The Nommo correspond to the Kemetic Khem-Anu. As sister and brother yet husband and wife, the four fish-twins were going to make each other fertile, complete, and blessed with heavenly happiness and fulfillment.
However, one of the male twins - Ogo the Kemetic Set - grew impatient as he waited for his female twin to gestate. Ogo decided to rebel from Amma. He jumped out of his celestial womb and stole parts of his own placenta. He then began creating and pro-creating with his own placenta in an attempt to re-create his own little world.
His stolen placenta became impure, and his actions greatly threw off the Divine Order Amma had intended. The Dogon say that our Sun - whom they call Nay - is the stolen placenta, and that planet Earth is the rebel-world established by Ogo.
Nommo Semi was composed of both a male and female Nommo Anagonno, and was a complete and perfect Being onto itself. Amma lifted Nommo Semi out of the celestial waters and tied the androgynous fish to the Kilena Mother of charcoal tree. In one swift cut, Amma sliced the umbilical cord and genitals of Nommo Semi. Semi died a suffering and painful death.
Amma then took the Nyama of the sacrificed Nommo and dripped it on the former placenta of the celestial fish the Sirius system and the stolen placenta of its brother Ogo our Sun Nay. It required the taking of a Pure and Perfected being Nommo Semi and sacrificing it. When Amma sprinkled the sacrificed Nyama, it did several things: - It caused the resurrection of the sacrificed Nommo.
Nommo Semi resurrected in three simultaneous forms: 1. The Kora-Na is depicted as a step-pyramid with an antennae-looking rod at the apex. The Female and Male souls of Nommo Semi now had their own separate forms. They were paired in Four couples united in the image of the Original Eight Nommo.
This ever-living placenta is the Sirius system, and as long as the connection with Sirius was maintained, the Resurrected Nommo would never die. The Sirius system floods the Impure Earth with rejuvenating and nourishing Nyama every sixty years, at which time the Dogon perform the Sigui Ceremony to reaffirm the Earth-Sirius connection. In heaven, it reorganized space and the cycles of time in our solar system.
The Sirius System and this planetary system thus became twin placentas of a pair of the 8 Ancestral Nommo. On earth, it organized hue-man culture and set the order for hue-man interaction.
This is the celestial foundation of the Earthly sciences of astrology, astronomy, and agriculture. One day during the transition of these ages, Taba Tolo - the reuniting of the two placentas - will occur.
Taba Tolo is when the Sun and Sirius come together in a grand conjunction. My guess is that this grand conjunction will probably occur on the First Helical Rising of Sirius after the equinox sunrise occurs with Aquarius as the celestial backdrop. This stream will wash away the corrupt order of Ogo and immortalize the daughters and sons of the Nommo. Beyond creating the principle and act of theft, when Ogo took its own placenta and recreated its own world, which amounted to an act of incest.
Amma felt that Ogo must be stopped from creating more chaos, as well as punished for its misdeeds. Amma ordered one of the other Nommo - Nommo Titeyanye - to punish Ogo. Ogo fled from the heavens down to Earth. Once on Earth, Amma wanted to bind Ogo to this planet so that he could not disrupt the celestial order anymore. Once on Earth, the Pale Fox Yurugu continued his disruptive and chaotic behaviors. He attempted to create an artificial world outside of the Divine Order of Amma.
That was what he was doing when the Ark Kora Na landed upon Earth. When it landed, the force of impact almost killed Yurugu, but he survived by fleeing underground. Out of the Kora Na emerged the Eight Ancestors of hue-manity. They came forth with Eight grains, including millet, black rice, chickpea, and sorghum. Their mission is to cultivate the land and grow the Celestial Grains so that everyone could live in abundance.
They were also supposed to reproduce and spread throughout the world bringing the Spiritual Technologies contained within the Kora-Na with them. The Eight Ancestors and their offspring were charged with conducting important ceremonies such as the Sigui Ceremony.
The Sigui is performed every 60 year when the Planets Jupiter and Saturn are aligned. The Sigui re-establishes the bond of the Fish-people who sacrificed their Divine Self to their homeland across the waters - Sirius.
This is the day that the re-uniting of the Twin-Placentas - Earth and Sirius - will be complete. Some of the most profound is the nature of the Sirius Star System and its importance in establishing and maintaining Celestial Order for our Solar System. It is a twin of the Po - the Black hole at the center of the Galaxy.
They say it is the smallest, yet heaviest of celestial objects, and that it ejects it essence out into Creation by its fast spinning. Moreover, Griaule says in the "Pale Fox": The movement of Po Tolo keeps all other stars in their respective places: in fact, one says that without this movement none of them would "stay in place". Po Tolo forces them to keep their trajectory… One calls it the "Pillar of the Stars"…. Po Tolo is the axis of the entire world… Modern astrophysics shows that indeed, Sirius B is a very old Green Dwarf Star that has completed the cycle of regular Star Life.
Sirius B ejected its outer atmosphere into space ages ago. Its interior has transformed from gaseous hydrogen plasma to a Solid Ionized Hydrogen Crystal. Once about the size of the Sun, it is now condensed to the size of the earth.
They do emit considerable UV radiation, however. Their primary energy is not nuclear-thermal, but Piezo Electric ionic energy due to gravitational pressure.
Dwarfs have electromagnetic fields that are stronger and a billion times larger than regular stars. They rotate incredibly fast, and circulate their particles for several thousand light-years. Dwarfs are very heavy and their weight bends warps time and space considerably.
Thus, Dwarf Stars have great influence on the organization of orbits and cycles of neighboring Stars and Planetary Systems. Without a doubt, the cycles, orbits, and rotations of our Solar system is defined and governed by Sirius B. Emma Ya Tolo is the female twin of the Po.
She appears to correspond to the Kemetic Goddess Auset. The Dogon say the Emma Ya Tolo is invisible and undetectable. To date, modern astronomers have not been able to observe or confirm the presence of Sirius C. In a Binary Star System of a Dwarf and Regular Star, the gravitational pull of the dwarf often siphons off the hydrogen essence of the regular star.
The hydrogen is sucked into the dwarf and then ejected out into space by the fast rotation.
Description[ edit ] The pale fox is long-bodied with relatively short legs and a narrow muzzle. The furis generally a pale sandy colour that turns white towards the abdomen. Its bushy tail is reddish brown and black at the tip. It is a relatively small canid with weight ranging from 1. The ears are large compared to other foxes but is typical of a desert inhabiting canid. The habitat is sandy or stony arid terrain, and the pale fox is able to relocate southwards and northwards in relation to the periodic droughts that affect these regions. It lives in small family groups with parents and their young.
