This blog series contains excerpts from "A Twisted History: Genesis and the Cosmos" -

We now know that our Galaxy is very much a "Jacob the Grabber."  In fact, the Milky Way has about 12 significant Dwarf Galaxies within its gravitational hold at the present time, and which are in various stages of "accretion" (assimilation into the main Milky Way Galaxy).


The exact number of Dwarf Galaxies is still being determined and debated.  It is uncertain whether some are actually gravitationally bound to the Milky Way.  Also, some of the Dwarf Galaxies identified may not be unique, that is, groups of two or three of these entities may have started out as a single/independent Galaxy, but split up after collision with the Milky Way (and therefore should only be counted as one Dwarf Galaxy).

One of the larger and closer Dwarf Galaxies, called SagDeg for short, has punched through the disk of the Milky Way on multiple occasions, and it has been proposed that this recurring event is at least partly responsible for the characteristic spiral banding that the Milky Way has assumed (as a response).  A previous "visitation" has evidently taken place in the local neighborhood of our solar system.


The wild ride of SagDeg certainly evokes the myth of Phaethon, a son of Helios (The Galactic Center) that desired to "drive the chariot of the Sun."  When Phaethon crashed and burned, Cycnus/Cygnus ("The Swan" constellation) mourned for him and dove repeatedly after him.  This seems to describe the gravitational perturbations caused by the motion of a satellite galaxy as it passes through the plane of the Milky Way.


Even more shockingly, in the Blessings of Jacob (Genesis 49), there is a very peculiar admission that Jacob was not the "father" of all of his "sons."  Referring to Joseph, it states:

"The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors ..."  

It goes on to state that Joseph was "separate from his brethren." (KJV)  The “branches” of Joseph also “spill over the wall,” which is a poetic description of a “tidal stream” formed by the sprawling arms of a dwarf galaxy as it becomes assimilated into the Milky Way.

The "Blessing of Joseph" in Genesis 49 also refers to vicious attacks that were made upon Joseph, which are not mentioned elsewhere in Genesis. This sounds very much like explanation of cosmic aggression, and a rather unexpected model (cosmology) of galactic formation and intelligent life that we are only now beginning to appreciate due to recent astronomical discoveries.
