The Ark Manual

No ancient relic causes so much controversy as built according to Divine instructions the Ark of the Covenant. The subject of Spielberg’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, featuring the intrepid Indiana Jones, the film does not exaggerate the passions the mystery of its location and power entails.

Introduction – Ark of the Covenant

The Ark of the Covenant also known as the Ark of the Testimony, is a chest described in Book of Exodus as solely containing the Tablets of Stone on which the Ten Commandments were inscribed.

According to some traditional interpretations of the Book of Exodus, Book of Numbers, and the Letter to the Hebrews the Ark also contained Aaron’s rod, a jar of manna and the first Torah scroll as written by Moses; however, the first of the Books of Kings says that at the time of king Solomon, the Ark contained only the two Tablets of the Law. According to the Book of Exodus, the Ark was built at the command of God, in accordance with the instructions given to Moses on Mount Sinai. God was said to have communicated with Moses “from between the two cherubim” on the Ark’s cover.

The biblical account relates that during the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt, the Ark was carried by the priests some 2,000 cubits in advance of the people and their army, or host. When the Ark was borne by priests into the bed of the Jordan, water in the river separated, opening a pathway for the entire host to pass through (Josh. 3:15-16; 4:7-18). The city of Jericho was taken with no more than a shout after the Ark of the Covenant was paraded for seven days around its wall by seven priests sounding seven trumpets of rams’ horns (Josh. 6:4-20). When carried, the Ark was always wrapped in a veil, in skins and a blue cloth, and was carefully concealed, even from the eyes of the priests who carried it. There are no contemporary extra-biblical references to the Ark.

The Book of Exodus gives detailed instructions on how the Ark is to be constructed. It is to be 2½ cubits in length, 1½ in breadth, and 1½ in height (as 2.5×1.5×1.5 royal cubits or 1.31×0.79×0.79 m).

Then it is to be plated entirely with gold, and a crown or molding of gold is to be put around it. Four rings of gold are to be attached—two on each side—and through these rings staves of shittim-wood overlaid with gold for carrying the Ark are to be inserted; and these are not to be removed. A golden cover, adorned with golden cherubim, is to be placed above the Ark. The Ark is finally to be placed behind a veil (Parochet), a full description of which is also given.

After its creation by Moses, the Ark was carried by the Israelites during their 40-years of wandering in the desert. Whenever the Israelites camped, the Ark was placed in a special and sacred tent, called the Tabernacle.

According to the Christian New Testament Book of Revelation, the Ark is in the Temple of God in Heaven, “Then God’s temple in heaven was opened, and within his temple was seen the Ark of his Covenant” (Rev. 11:19 NIV).

The Ark of the Covenant Operations Manual

by Christopher Jordan

”The Ark of the Covenant Operations Manual” might be the most controversial manual that westerners will ever read. Many books have been written about the Ark, few show a working mechanic. Most dwell on the perceived history, probable location or theological implications. Whilst these areas are touched upon, this short book shines because it simply shows how.

The Manual is a focused expression of the broader Ancient Solar Premise (ASP), which covers thousands of misunderstood artifacts and sites. The simple principles that underpin the operation of an Ark are related in detail. Importantly, it shows how to build a device and perform the miraculous feats of the Old Testament. Surprisingly the capabilities can be achieved with objects many people have lying around the home.

There are two key elements to an Ark. There is the gilded chest with a couple of stones in the base and a sun disk propped up on the lid. Real examples of these devices and their effects from other biblical era cultures are found in museums. The first facet delivers virtually limitless energy; the second produces intensities higher than an industrial laser. Between them, they resolve a series of mythological tales and mysterious artifacts.

The science involved is known to any high school student. However, the extreme applications are not and these have truly profound implications. There are photos of the results of using the devices and video links showing the technology actually in use. These are backed up by the detail from a great deal of research and testing.

Whilst many theories have been posited on the working mechanic of the Ark, none shows anything like the same breadth of application. Few if any can be made with the tools and technology actually found in the museums. Most other ideas leave the working procedures to the imagination of readers and the science to future researchers. The Ark Manual leaves the reader with no doubts. The techniques can be set up and proved by anyone in a few hours.

Feats of the Old Testament

The myriad of uses of this power are mapped directly on to the Old Testament. The following feats and other equally renowned qualities are easy to reproduce under the principles laid out. The burning bush; writing in stone; the Voice of God; the Finger of God; the incredible stone cutting Shamir worm; knocking down the walls of Jericho; the Face of Gods. The emphasis of these stories changes when it is recognized that there were no gods or aliens involved, just the ingenuity of man.

The picture to the right shows an intense dynamic tube of energy. The power has been made as high as 15MW/sqm with the methods laid out in the Ark manual. This easily splits or melts just about any stone. Is this the fabled ‘Shamir worm’ mentioned in the Old Testament? It is certainly capable of delivering many of the feats associated with the Shamir.

The survival of the Exilic Israelites in the desert is rarely cited as a miracle. However, under this premise it becomes patently obvious why the Ark chest is so revered. Without the device, there would not have been enough energy for the reported populations to survive the wandering years. The implications here are just as relevant for people today. The modern usage of this technology is explored in ”The Sun Devices”. Whilst many of these uses are extravagant, none can match the ancient world for scale and intricacy.

The Broader Implications

There are repercussions for the theologians, which have undoubtedly been raised privately before. Whilst no one has suggested a reframing of the Israelite God based on the electrical or radioactive ideas, the Ark Manual touches on a nerve. It is not a book for the faithful, since the ramifications strike at the origins of western faiths. The explanations make it clear that the modern god is a very close relative of the Egyptian sun gods. Religious scholars might well seek to thwart the idea gaining any real traction.

This type of resistive force has already been experienced in the Asia when attempting to publish the broader Ancient Solar Premise. It is unlikely that other author’s were threatened with swift deportation by the Culture Ministry on account of their work. Irrespective of whether they touted the impossible, impractical, unlikely or just plain whacky. The tourism boards probably enjoy the benefits of most alternative ideas since they increase the interest in the ancient sites. The Ancient Solar Premise is not so welcome because it raises very awkward questions.

Several of the Ark techniques are pulled directly from a recreation of the ancient Greek tract ‘On Burning Mirrors’. This is rumored to be languishing out of sight in the Vatican basement, presumably because of the ramifications for the church. Some have already said that the Ark Manual should be burnt, though it is not clear how one burns an ebook. It might be wise to those who are interested in understanding how an Ark worked to pick up a copy whilst it is still available for free.

About the Author

Christopher Jordan was born in London and studied Chemical Physics at Sussex University, under the guidance of Sir Harold Kroto. He played a part in manually analyzing the early data from the microwave telescopes, eventually identifying an alcohol in interstellar gas clouds. These tasks were being automated by computers, which were doing the job better and faster. During a short spell on the accounting ladder, the same was noted within the financial sector. Chris Jordan surfed this wave of computer growth by developing small and large data systems for national food and beverage companies. Eventually, managing a national software department after stints as a programmer, business analyst and project manager.
During this period he became intrigued with some of the unanswered questions surrounding nature’s development process. After many years of study some concepts were crossed over between the computing and biological arenas. This led to some novel computer systems that literally built themselves around the databases to which they were aimed. This software was the center piece of a computer company set up by a few partners and himself. Several papers on systems analysis and design were published during this time in specialist magazines.
Whilst running this company, further research was carried out modeling non-linear reaction diffusion systems on the surfaces of cells and groups of cells. This led to his seminal work on the nature of morphological determination and the role cell adhesion molecules played within the scheme. This in turn led to some unique experiments in the field of developmental biology. The general framework for development was published in Thailand during a three year sabbatical.
The author started visiting the ancient sites of Asia during this period. Whilst he had previously been a visitor to the European and Egyptian sites, the common facets of the cultures began to emerge from all this travel. Despite a two year interlude managing the IT for a global spirits company in ex Eastern bloc countries, the interest in the ancient past continued. Specifically, the desire to make sense of all of these similar religious sites, tools and unexplained curios. Any scientist is taught that it is from the quirky inexplicable areas that new ideas evolve. A simple paradigm that extends further is deemed more elegant than a restrictive complex alternative. This is where the site narrative that makes up the Secrets of the Sun Sects stems from.
This was coupled with the faulty parabolic mirror theories that surround these same cultures. The math that shows how easy it was for the ancient craftsmen to build the mirrors and how powerful they were, was carried out over thirty years ago. Ironically, this was the first thing the author failed to publish as a teenager. At the time, it was just a table, which a child thought was missing from the classroom texts. Fortuitously, it was very useful in proving that spherical surfaces make good Burning Mirrors for all manner of applications. From these two strands the full scope of the use of solar technology in the ancient world was built up. He is currently promoting the use of solar technologies in the developing countries of Asia.

    I could not agree more with your comments on the lack of evidence of the biblical accounts. Like many stories it seems to take actual events and mixes them with fictional ones. I make mention of this position in the discussion towards the end of the Ark Manual. I think there is a great deal of merit to it.

    On the other hand there is plenty of evidence for the use of this technology in the biblical era. Much of this is laid out in the Ancient Solar Premise, as a scientist I take this as much more compelling. Probably the most compelling coincidences or facts on which the bible accounts were based are the vitrified stones which are hard to account for by any other method. With sun dishes they are a simple process. Along with the actual dish tech found this gives pretty strong evidence for use. Secondly, the Ark’s of Amun/Amen found in the tombs have elements that would work as portable solar devices, which would benefit desert nomads. These are portable versions of the 1000s of other solar chambers found al over the globe, many of which still work.

    The Ark is a storyline that most are familiar with, the solar premise rests easily within the technology. It is easy for anyone to decide whether the OT feats are possible with these evidenced ancient devices. They can run the tests and demos described. Ultimately it is down to ones faith whether the biblical accounts are true or not.

      Yes Chris, I have no reservations about your profound scientific knowledge only in the manner you are applying it. Concerning the vitrified stone, that can be found at many ancient sites around the globe. Certainly the Jews and the Arc did vitrify the stones at a number of sites in Mexico and South America. Since you are scientists I am not sure that you may accept the notion that those extremely heavy apparently laser cut vitrified stones was the work of Ancient Aliens. Certainly the Bible has allot of postulations in it that can be rationally deciphered as alluding to Alien experiences.

      You are completely right the belief in the Bible comes down to faith. Faith is OK albeit not blind. There is a lack of evidence to show that any great amount of The Bible is accurate. While I can have faith that the Sun will rise tomorrow, I am reluctant to extend that much trust to The Bible.

        I do not turn to Aliens unless it is absolutely necessary, happy for others to.

        As for the biblical accounts, my main point is that whether or not the accounts are a chronologically correct or not does not matter much. The testament contains accounts of really odd techniques that can be delivered with the tools on display in the museums. This is not accidental story telling, but more likely incorporating real events from somewhere. The fact that the Ark Manual allows anyone to perform these feats often referred to as miracles by the faithful allows the book to stand regardless.

        Other can have faith in Alien, lol.

    Can we take it for granted that the Bible is postulating historical fact? Should we be taking it literally and trying to authenticate it by using modern perceptions and methods? Did the Hebrews rome the dessert for forty years, months, weeks or was there an Exodus at all? What are we to make of all those miraculous tales in the Bible that only they can account for? Let us face it, the Jews were and still are great story tellers, i.e. Hollywood.

    The Ancient Egyptians were great historians and kept a detailed historical record of their lives, events, adventures and wars at their borders and beyond. What there is no mention of in their records is the account of the Hebrew God’s curses on the Egyptians that allowed their Exodus. Certainly such a grand mementos occurrence with the sea parting and all should have merited at least a slight mention in the Egyptians historical records.

    So then, how can one be sure that the Hebrew story about Moses and an Arc that was so powerful is completely true. Especially when there appears to be no substantial corroborating evidence from alternate historical accounts. We have lots of pudding but no proof, a great cultural story but not history. Nonetheless it has captured the minds and musings of many since the stories were written. While there is always a grain of truth in mythological stories or events, I believe one has to look hard to find the grain hidden within the layers of fantasy

      Have you heard the theory that the ark was a device to store radioactive substance,what does abraham the city of ur and the annunaki from nibiru have in common,The truth is radiation and control measures have been used for land domination,They tried to influence egyptian culture with this device but ancient knowledge that is kept on that land can never be manipulated by religion.
