Traditionally, the star Nemesis/Nibiru are said to have seven surrounding planets. Hence maybe the reference to the ‘Menorah’; the seven golden Lamp Stands in the Hebrew culture. Nemesis might also have had a companion planet from the start, originating from the Centauri star system. Some of this entourage are believed to be ‘adopted bodies’, coming from the host of the ancient star ‘Apsu’.
Tales from the dawn of Creation
We must read quite a bit between the lines of the Babylonian legend ‘Enuma Elish’, to fully comprehend the history of our Solar System. The ‘father star’ Apsu was first in place, gathering no less than eight bodies in orbit. Some Eons later, a foreign star appears, joining the assemblance. This star is later called ‘Ur-bar-ra’ or ‘Barbaru’. Ur-bar-ra is a very large yellow sun, turning out to be a problematic acquaintance, disturbing orbits and causing havoc from time to time. On its arrival, it carried two red dwarf stars in its wake. The star Apsu is still however leader of the Solar System.
The star Osiris arrives
As if things weren’t chaotic enough, another star joins the system. This yellow star arrives from the Centauri System, having been dragged out of orbit, maybe by interference from the Sirius star system. The new star, Osiris, are assimilated in the star family, only with a peculiar tilted and retrograde orbit. As it eventually turns out, this orbit isn’t stable. And so, at an unfortunate time, the stars Apsu and Osiris physically interacts with each other. It is a disaster. The outer layers of Apsu shatters like a nova and remaining is only a significantly smaller body. As for Osiris, a large part is cut off, later forming the star known as ‘Centauri B’. It will eventually be ‘adopted’ by the star Centauri A.
Ur-bar-ra takes control
The dethroning of Apsu has made Ur-bar-ra the leading entity in the Solar System. This is not good news because Ur-bar-ra is too large and has a kind of ‘evil streak’ to her. Things are likely to get out of hand and it does. Very slowly, Ur-bar-ra pulls energy from the weakening Osiris. And one day, the star Osiris flickers out and turns dark. The star has imploded to be a ‘Neutron star’, it no longer shines but is now extremely dense and with a fierce magnetic field. Osiris is no more; the avenger Nemesis is instead born. This turns out to be the beginning of the end for Ur-bar-ra, the monster.
The heavenly battle
The orbit of Nemesis occasionally puts it in the path near the star Ur-bar-ra. At one such time, there is contention. Ur-bar-ra prepares to fully crush Nemesis but underestimates the unbelievable density of Nemesis. During the battle, Nemesis only passes nearby Ur-bar-ra. This however is enough; the star Ur-bar-ra is literally torn apart, divided in two. As a tribute, Nemesis gather some of her planets, keeping them as his own. Among them are the twin red dwarfs of Ur-bar-ra. They remain in the outer orbital parts of Nemesis. They are about the same size and are gravitationally bound to each other.
From Ur-bar-ra came our present sun; ‘Sol’ or ‘Astarte’. The other part became ‘Pre-Jupiter’, later reducing even more in size. Five of Ur-bar-ra’s outer planetary host joined Nemesis. The twin pair of red dwarfs completed the count to seven. As for the names of these stars, they might be what the Sumerians called the twins in the sign ‘Mashtabba’; Lahmu and Lahamu.
