Hee. I love nutty pseudoscience online.

Also, I'm fairly sure "Sesame" does not have anything to do with "seshemu"; Faulkner's Concise Dictionary marks two words that this might derive from; one is "ruler, leader", the other is "statue, portrait, image, counterpart". Quite aside from that it makes no sense whatsoever as an etymology.

Wiki claims the term derives from the plant, the name of which, apparently, derives from Assyrian "shamash-shammu".

My guess is that the site/book/etc. is some kind of 'secrets of the ancients' claptrap a la Zeitgeist: The Movie.
O to be wafted away
From this black aceldama of sorrow;
Where the dust of an earthy today
Is the earth of a dusty tomorrow!
