Like any other subject within that list. You have to spend time and effort in order to understand it...’To get ones head around it’. Rather than just leaving it to those ‘first impressions’. As other subjects have proven in the past. Before being accepted in mainstream. Like any other subject we all have favourites. Some find it easy to ‘get their heads around’...maths or physics or literature etc. For those that do not find it easy...it just means; does it not; that it may take that bit longer. As long as that interest is there...is it not just a question of time before that new interest is added to that individuals list? Same thing ...different subject.

However it does not prove the subjects core ‘essence’. That life continues. Certainly not to the casual reader. As we all know some individuals believe that possibility is more so than not. As proven by such authors. While others certainly do not. As proven by such authors as Mr R. Dawkins. Who sums up all the above authors as ‘Pastafarian’ theologists. The Orthodox stuff as ’The flying spaghetti monster’ brigade. The bible as ‘weird’ and Yahweh as an ‘evil monster’, [ all on a good day ]. Whether those 'first impressions' have been improved upon or reinforced due to the recent ’coming together’ of those two ‘alternative views’..."only time; and Mr Dawkins; will tell". However what can be proven using all the available ‘esoteric’ lore that is common throughout and which has only been touched on...If only to emphasize the authenticity of the details within...and therefore the subject as a whole. Which may be of interest; is the following. [ Main examples ] ...

Proofs

A....The relationship between the pyramids,the sphinx and that most ancient of all symbols.The cross.In relation to the journey A-C, [ explained elsewhere ].

B....The relationship between the swastika, solstices, equinoxes and the cross. Their connection to the esoteric lore of death/rebirth and that mythical bird...The Phoenix. That link to the symbolism of ‘Charcoal’ found on many archaeology sites, [ Timeteam ].

That link to the symbolism of 'Atlantis’. In relation to "the opening of the flood gates",i.e., in the Collective sense. Or "a watershed moment", in relation to an individual one. Both in relation to, 'Keeping ones head above the water'. Represented with the 'Tau cross',i.e.,higher of the lower OR higher within the ''lower degrees''. Hence 'feet first', i.e.,the foundation upon which the next stage can be started/positioned from. Try part two, as well as four.

"And again, just as it had been in the Four Corners last summer, the Yucatan and surrounding areas were in a terrible drought. Another part of our job, then, would be to perform the ceremonies that would bring rain - the physical symbol of the balance we were seeking." ['Serpent of Light Beyond 2012'].

"The waters ebb and flow. Let the 'magician' guard himself from drowning at the point where land and water meet. The midway spot, which is neither dry nor wet [link to 'marsh' and 'primordial' mound symbolism. Explained elsewhere], must provide the standing place whereon his feet are set. When water, land and air meet, there is the place for 'magic' to be wrought." [ 'A Treatise on White Magic' by A. Bailey]. Recall what 'magic' represents - before those first impressions take hold.

''The energy had to crystallize for us to understand what was coming our way...As this realization flooded into me..." [From the book by D. Melchizedek].

N.B. Copan {South America} originally built on march land - of which the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow - describes as the 'Mecca of the West' ['Poems of Places' / Vol XXX].

"An optimistic, positive person is one who always feels in control. A pessimistic person, negative person has the sensation of being washed to and fro by the tide, out of control and unable to gain firm moorings." [ Extract from chapter 11, 'Mind Magic' by B. Shine].

"My branch of science, physics, has got somewhat bogged down. The same thing can be said in a different way: when rational methods in science reach a dead end, a new lease on life is given to those contents that were pushed out of time consciousness in the 17th century and sank into the unconscious." [Chapter 5, '137: Jung, Pauli, And the Pursuit of a Scientific Obsession'].

That link to the book of ‘revelations’. In relation to a journey, by way of an "unveiling", [ explained elsewhere ]. Both internal and ‘overall ’, [ ‘Apocalypse Unsealed’ by J. Pryce ]. Or 'The Cayce Readings' in relation to the same, as indicated in chapter six of 'The Source Field Investigations'. Mentioned elsewhere. This 'framework', that when understood gives a deeper meaning to those well researched opinions in that same book. As it does with his most up to date publication...'The Synchronicity Key'.

The Soul is thus not to be conceived as a certain defined essence, caged in the body, or even as a point or immaterial substance, but rather as a continuous line of spiritual being, stretching from the general source of all the souls to beyond the specific body of a particular person. The connection between the body and the soul is like what occurs at the end of a line of light, when a dark body is illuminated. And because the soul is not a single point in space, it should be viewed not as a single existence having one quality or character, but as many existences, on a variety of spiritual levels. Thus to begin with the Soul gives the body its life and being, that vital being which distinguishes anything alive and real. [Chapter Three, The Thirteen Petalled Rose by A. Steinsaltz.

C....The relationship between the Pyramids, Mayan / Aztec temples,’Solomons temple’, Stonehenge / cathedrals and the zodiac. That link to the construction and purpose of Labyrinths. That same link to the Nazca lines. In relation to a journey,[ explained in such books as Labyrinths. By Sig Lonegren. Or 'The Knossos Labyrinth' by R. Castleden ].

Levens Hall - the only remaining 17th century original - as when it was first built - contains many labyrinths in the original design- as speculated on by Monty Don ['The Secret History of British Gardens']. ''...the more you look, the harder it is to read'' and "...details remain frustratingly elusive" and "...if you can break the code, then the garden reveals itself in fascinating detail". His conclusions being of ''Catholic'' connection - because of the 'obvious', i.e.,''as an act of contemplation''. Indeed it was; but not in the literal sense. The 'ha ha' lawn also being first introduced in that same 17th century landscape. The first thing that the designer built. Higher in relation to lower. Animals 'confined' to the 'lower'. The 'vertical' boundary line dividing the two. To 'see' the full story; understand ALL the parts to define the 'whole'. Enlarged throughout, i.e., the 'Royal Crescent' at Bath also included the ''ha ha''.

That same link to ‘Thread/Web’ symbolism, [ explained elsewhere ]. Especially in relation to the Inca ‘Khipus’ in relation to 'Micro/Macro'. Shamanism refers to the same as the 'web of power' ['Secrets of Shamanism' by J. and L. Stevens]. Understanding A-C, relative to the 'divine bit' gives a possible understanding to the same.

That same link to the Amarna picture universally known showing Akhenaten with his ’wife’,[ ‘Nefertiti’ ]...seated with their ’daughters’ under/receiving the ‘suns rays’. What later became known as the ‘Seven Rays' of creation, i.e., six plus the 'wife'. Think about it. Eastern link to Chakra. [Development of].

imagesYK94U3I7Analogy? {i.e.,six brothers and the father} i.e.,from a different perspective: "Homer shows a compassionate understanding of the bonds of family love : 'Andromache came to meet him with a nurse who carried his little child {Astyanax} in her bosom ''Hectors darling son and lovely as a star''. Hector had named him Scamandrius, but the people called him Astyanax, for his father stood alone as chief guardian of the Ilium...An astronomical place was found for Andromache . Homer says that father of same and six brothers were killed when Achilles sacked Eeition; Andromache also has a nurse who carries her young son. From this information it was reasonable to look for a constellation close to Canis Major {Achilles} and Orion {Hector/Paris} that had eight brighter stars to represent all the above, i.e.,mother/brothers/father and two lesser stars of magnitude to represent nurse and son. Such a grouping is found in the constellation of Lepus, at the foot of Orion, which has eight stars brighter than 4th magnitude and two lesser stars of magnitude to represent nurse and son." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Something to ponder on: {A} ''Alone as chief guardian of the ?'' = Same could be said of Akhenaten? {B} "lovely as a star'' = A golden one? {C} ''Nurse and son'' = same link? {D} Lepus = HARE constellation. Anything?

In other words {as seen from a different {''angle''} - Six daughters plus the mother plus the father plus nurse and son = the REASON FOR CHOOSING THE HARE CONSTELLATION?

hare-3Question. Which came first, subject material or naming of constellations or naming and numbering of Nomes {Egypt}.

"One becomes a vast arc, curving from the divine source to oneself........." Find it, to complete it, in order to understand it. Try ''45''.

Landscape equivalent = 'Dragon lines' and 'Serpent' shapes...in its as 'yet to be discovered' state...in relation to the onlooker. As indicated to the now present 'reader' in such books as 'The New View Over Atlantis'. Further information to evaluate correctly...."The Seven Rays of Life' by A. Bailey.

"Matter is the vehicle for the manifestation of soul on this plane of existence, and soul is the vehicle on a higher plane for the manifestation of spirit, and these three are a trinity synthesized by life, which pervades them all." [Introduction to the book by A. Bailey]. Link to the ''divine bit'' together with what others define as ''septenary'' as a means to make something understood relative to what most define within those horizontal/vertical boundaries. See it yet?

"The word 'spiritual' should be associated with the word 'eyes'. This is a reference to the eyes of the mind or heart. To see is to understand." [From the book by T. Nottingham].

"Sirius is sometimes called the 'Sun behind the sun', indicating that while the star we call the Sun is related to our physical center of Self in our Solar Plexus and the expression of our Selves within the physical earth, Sirius represents a more hidden center." ['Red Tree, White Tree'].

Celtic equivalent {of same principles?}: "The god Hu was the all ruling divinity of western Celtic mythology. He represented the power and glory of the spiritual world, and in that sense, the spiritual, not the physical sun. He was 'wedded' to the goddess Ceridwen; and Ceridwen was the soul of the world, bestwing the power of 'vision' upon the human soul...And so we can imagine, that when Ceridwen made herself known in her true form {eureka moments?} - all 'terror' and fury of darkness overcome, her Cauldron {enlarged elsewhere} of Nature, would be the Iris itself, radiant glowing, living, creating - the Girdle of Hu the 'Mighty'. " ['The Flaming Door' / Page 153].   Try ''girdle''.                                                                         

"The soul is as yet an unknown quantity. It has no real place in the theories of the academic and scientific investigators. It is unproven and regarded by even the more open minded of the academicians as a possible hypothesis, but lacking demonstration. It is not accepted as a fact in the consciousness of the race. Only two groups of people accept it as a fact; one is the gullible, undeveloped, childlike person who, brought up on a scripture of the world, and being religiously inclined, accepts the postulates of religion - such as the soul, God and immortality - without questioning. The other is that small but steadily growing band of 'Knowers of God', and of reality, who know the soul to be a fact in their own experience but are unable to prove its existence satisfactory to the man who admits only that which the concrete mind can grasp, analyse, criticise and test. The ignorant and the wise meet on common ground as extremes always do. In between are those who are neither totally ignorant nor intuitively wise. They are the mass of the educated people who have knowledge but not understanding, and who have yet to learn the distinction between that which can be grasped by the rational mind; that which can be seen by the minds eye; and that which only the higher or abstract mind can formulate and know." [ Same book].

"Soul expresses itself in feelings and is associated with the act of attention, and spirit expresses itself in thoughts and is associated with the act of intention. These two components of attention and intention make up a kind of binary software of transcendence {i.e.,by way of the 'Will'?}." See it?

"The word 'spiritual' should be associated with the word 'eyes'. This is a reference to the eyes of the mind or heart. To see is to understand." [From the book by T. Nottingham].

The Moon was associated with the soul and the unconscious self, of which the conscious self is a reflection. Or as Titus Burckhardt put it: ''The Moon [and the metal silver] was considered to be analogous to the soul in its state of pure receptivity; whereas the soul transmuted and illumined by the spirit was analogous to the Sun and the metal gold." [Both paragraphs taken from the 'Sorcerers Stone'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Analogy of same, i.e., with the same intent..."A thing has no existence relatively to ourselves before we become conscious of its existence...The term consciousness signifies realization of existence relative to a certain thing. Consciousness in the absolute sense is unconsciousness in relation to things... Consciousness means knowledge and life, unconsciousness is ignorance and death..." Quotes taken from the book by F. Hartman.

'Panspermia' the closest we can get [besides the proverbial 'soup' hypothesis] to attempt a possible understanding [of what the shamans call the "web of power" ], of the origins of life. Understanding this subjects full framework, relative to what this subject means and continues to imply from its origins to the present day, about the 'divine bit'. Gives a broader, more logical explanation of the possibility of that 'source', of which this world and/or universe cannot be one of those possibilities. There are only two other options / possibilities left. Can you guess[or by way of Ockhams Razor], which of the remaining two, is the most likely when all the available 'information' is assessed?

Also note that the word 'divine'[ and its implication], is most certainly not a shamanic word. As is the word 'shaman' and their activities, any more popular, to those who do use the word 'divine' and what that word is meant to imply...and yet the meaning and implications of both...are the same. Question. What does that concept imply?

'Jung and Shamanism : Retrieving the Soul / Retrieving the Sacred' by C. M. Smith.

That link to the word 'emanations' as used within many Gnostic texts, as researched in such books as 'The Master Game". Or of the same, in the Hebrew 'Tree of life'. "Ten emanations in relation to the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet = 'the language of god".[Chapter fifteen.'Master Game']. That start point being...from those inspirations and aspirations, that now lead to a further understanding, by way of [path], a 'learning curve'. Different perspective - same principles.

"Just as they do in the higher world, the ten Sefirot 'exist' in the human soul; and from their mutual interrelations are derived and manifested all the broad span of thoughts, feelings, and experiences of man. Thus, the first three Sefirot assert the aspects of pure consciousness. Hokhmah, expressing the power of original light, is that which distinguishes and creates, and is the basis of intuitive grasp: Binah, expressing the analytical and synthetic power of the mind, builds and comprehends forms and probes the meaning of that which comes from the Sefirah of Hokhmah: and Daat, expressing the crystallization of awareness in terms of conclusions and the abstract ascertaining of facts, is that which enables consciousness to make a transition from one 'form' of existence to another, thereby ensuring its continuity." By way of an interest in a subject or what Goethe defines as ''commitment.'' [Chapter 4, 'The Zelator'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Further information of same, relative to the Hebrew equivalent [start of which, explained above] of a representational, of those three universal keys/common factors of... thought, emotion and will; and their importance to the overall framework; can be found in the same chapter of the same book, i.e.,'The Thirteen Petalled Rose'. Or for an alternative viewpoint, 'Knowledge of the Higher Worlds and its Attainment' by R. Steiner. Or 'The Presence of Other Worlds' by Wilson Van Dusen. A book about the ''findings of Emanuel Swedenborg.''

walkingHermetic equivalent..."Fusion, inner unity, is obtained by means of 'friction', by the struggle between 'yes' and 'no' in man. If a man lives without inner struggle; if everything happens to him without opposition; if he goes wherever he is drawn or wherever the wind blows, he will remain such as he is. But if a struggle begins in him, and particularly if there is a definite line in this struggle, then, gradually, permanent traits begin to form themselves, he begins to 'crystallize'. Crystallization is possible on any foundations." [Extract from the book by Tomberg. 'Letter Xiii' ]. Link to ''Temple'' symbolism. Try ''crystallize''.

"A {working?} example:"Identification through the Catalogue of Ships and through the Rule of Wounding are the most precise of the methods Homer uses to associate 'warriors' with stars in constellations, but there are many lesser warriors about whom he gives little information and yet who still need a home in the heavens. Some victims are not identified individually but are referred to simply as, for example, 'Lycians'. The principle for identifying the stars with which such warriors are associated is that generally they are less prominent stars on a 'line of sight' or close to their attackers in the heavens. Groups of Trojans 'killed' in large numbers by Patroclus and Achilles, for instance, are stars close to Canis Minor and Canis Major. The stars such lesser warriors represent belong to less prominent constellations. Haphazard as this method may at first seem, it is successful in determining the position of many stars. In Book 16 of the Iliad a group of nine Trojan warriors are killed by Patroclus...These victims match 'stars' - in a clockwise direction - in three groups in the neck and head of the adjacent constellation of Hydra...When Homer introduces groups of men of lower rank, he commonly singles out one of them for special emphasis, and that man represents the brightest star in his group..." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Define those universal keys to understand what Homer is implying, i.e.,Achilles and his 'best friend' relative to the Dog Star as is the case with Gilgamesh and 'his best friend' Enkidu {'wild man' aspect i.e.,lower half of self}. And/or ''clockwise'' in relation to the Precession. And/or ''brightest'' in relation to 'Son of' . And/or ''16'' relative to ''nine''. All enlarged elsewhere.

Continued..."More than once Paris of Troy fires his arrows across the heavens , either to establish a 180 degree { u-turn?} panorama of the skies or to mark a straight 'line of sight' between stars in two constellations . A line drawn from Paris {Orion} extends to Persei, the flat foot of Perseus i.e.,'Paris drew his bow and let fly an arrow that sped not from his hand in vain, but pierced the flat right foot of Diomedes {Perseus}, going right through it and fixing itself in the ground...In the Iliad more Trojan warriors are killed than Greeks, and this means that fewer stars in 'Greek' constellations are identified during the fighting. To overcome this problem, Homer used the funeral games in Book 23 to describe in more detail the principle Greek constellations. In some cases contestants win 'prizes' - or stars - they already own.  Meriones, for instance, is awarded two talents of gold, which represent his personal double star in Taurus. Diomedes is another contestant who also wins a prize he already owns - the large silver sword and scabbard he is awarded are already part of his constellation." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

"The cella was unusually large to accommodate the oversized statue of Athena, confining the front and back porch to a much smaller than usual size. A line of six Doric columns supported the front and back porch, while a colonnade of 23 smaller Doric columns surrounded the statue in a two-storied arrangement. The placement of columns behind the statue was an unusual development since in previous Doric temples they only appeared on the flanks, but the greater width and length of the Parthenon allowed for a dramatic backdrop of double decked columns instead of a wall.
"While the integration of Doric and Ionic elements on the same temple was not a new development in Greek architecture, it was rare, and bestowed on the Parthenon a delicate balance between austere and delicate visual characteristics.
All temples in Greece were designed to be seen only from the outside. The viewers never entered a temple and could only glimpse the interior statues through the open doors. The Parthenon was conceived in a way that the aesthetic elements allow for a smooth transition between the exterior and the interiorthat housed the chryselephantine statue of Athena."

"The first endeavour to build a sanctuary for Athena Parthenos on the site of the present Parthenon was begun shortly after the Battle of Marathon (c. 490–488 BC) upon a solid limestone foundation that extended and levelled the southern part of the Acropolis summit. This building replaced a hekatompedon (meaning "hundred-footer") and would have stood beside the archaic temple dedicated to Athena Polias ("of the city"). The Older or Pre-Parthenon, as it is frequently referred to, was still under construction when the Persians sacked the city in 480 BC and razed the Acropolis.

The Battle of Marathon was a watershed in the Greco-Persian wars, showing the Greeks that the Persians could be beaten; the eventual Greek triumph in these wars can be seen to begin at Marathon. The battle also showed the Greeks that they were able to win battles without the Spartans, as they had heavily relied on Sparta previously. This win was largely due to the Athenians, and Marathon raised Greek esteem of them. Since the following two hundred years saw the rise of the Classical Greek civilization, which has been enduringly influential in western society, the Battle of Marathon is often seen as a pivotal moment in Mediterranean and European history.

"The Parthenon is a temple of the Doric order with eight columns at the façade, and seventeen columns at the flanks, conforming to the established ratio of 9:4. This ratio governed the vertical and horizontal proportions of the temple as well as many other relationships of the building like the spacing between the columns and their height."
DEFINE ALL THOSE KEYS TO 'SEE' SOMETHING OTHER THAN THE OBVIOUS.
REFRESHER: Parthenon..."Mostly curves, very few right angles; dedicated to Athene..." {PBS America}. Born from the 'forehead' of Zeus - 'fully armed'. Slow to anger.  Goddess of wisdom. Archaeoastronomically aligned to the Hyades constellation - the 'five' daughters of Atlas - who became known as the weeping sisters - associated with 'rain'. {Wiki}.

"From the perspective of observers on Earth, the Hyades Cluster appears in the constellation Taurus, where its brightest stars form a "V" shape along with the still brighter red giant Aldebaran. However, Aldebaran is unrelated to the Hyades, as it is located much closer to Earth (hence its apparent brightness) and merely happens to lie along the same line of sight.

bully2The five brightest member stars of the Hyades have all evolved away from the Main Sequence and now lie at the bottom of the giant branch.[6] Four of these stars, with Bayer designations Gamma, Delta 1, Epsilon, and Theta Tauri, form an asterism that is traditionally identified as the head of Taurus the Bull.[6] The fifth of these stars is Theta-1 Tauri, a tight naked-eye companion to the brighter Theta-2 Tauri. Epsilon Tauri, known as Ain (the "Bull's Eye"), has a gas giant exoplanet candidate,[7] the first planet to be found in any open cluster.

The age of the Hyades is estimated to be about 625 million years.[1] The cluster core, where stars are most densely packed, has a radius of 2.7 parsecs (corresponding to a diameter of 17.6 light years), and the cluster's tidal radius is 10 parsecs (corresponding to a diameter of 65 light years).[1] However, about one-third of confirmed member stars have been observed well outside this boundary, in the cluster's extended halo; these stars are probably in the process of escaping from its gravitational influence."

REFRESHER: "From the perspective of observers on Earth, the Hyades Cluster appears in the constellation Taurus, where its brightest stars form a "V" shape along with the still brighter red giant Aldebaran. However, Aldebaran is unrelated to the Hyades, as it is located much closer to Earth (hence its apparent brightness) and merely happens to lie along the same line of sight."

"Endorsement of the view that the planets visible to the naked eye were represented by the gods came about in an unusual way {enlarged elsewhere}...Although they differ in literal expression, a number of translations of this event from the Iliad {i.e.,five planets and new moon} reflect similar astronomical images - That the gods returned in 'a line'. A literal translation from the Greek texts says: 'From that {time} became the TWELFTH DAWN, then indeed to Olympus went all the ever being gods, all at the same time and Zeus led." ['Homer's Secret Iliad']. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

"Fusion, inner unity, is obtained by means of 'friction', by the struggle between 'yes' and 'no' in man.

But if a struggle begins in him, and particularly if there is a definite line in this struggle, {''line of sight''?}  then, gradually, permanent traits begin to form themselves, he begins to 'crystallise'.

In relation to the ‘Precession of the Equinox’. Understanding the 'movement' of that astronomical feature gives a very good clue if not the most important one as to its true symbolism. That same link to the Antikythera mechanism. Very similar link to the ‘Copper scrolls’. Same reason [ explained elsewhere ], i.e., not made by ‘aliens’. However the understanding of that framework when thought about offers a possible alternative. The word ‘hybrid’ comes to mind.

Analogy; with the same intent..."The same rule applies to folk tales, myths,and ancient lore in general. There is no substitute for the real thing.

homer

Question. A 'spotted' dog?

A working example: "Apart from their fundamental importance in the construction of his catalogue stars, Homer also used some of the constellations for quite a separate purpose. When the poet singers of ancient times told the stories from the Iliad that explained great theories about the movement of the heavens and the place of the earth in the universe, the night sky was there blackboard. When, for instance, Achilles chases Hector across the heavens to his death, it would not have been easy to visualize this event by observing the passage of just two personnel stars amid the many hundreds of others that were visible. Homer overcame this problem by letting the characters involved in such important astronomical lessons assume the 'mantles' of their entire constellations when expounding upon such important ideas as the nature of the universe. How much more vivid and instructive would it have been to watch Canis Major {Achilles} pursue majestic Orion {Hector} across the skies..." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Question. ''explaining great theories'' and/or  ''important astronomical lessons'' since the dawn {Sirius?} of human kind. Question 2. ''Precession'' lessons only?

"In a grave on Thera [the closest island to which the above ''mechanism'' was found] an island much influenced by Aegean culture, pieces of jewellery were found on which is depicted a female head with a bees body.....they were probably connected with the worship of Artemis."........."There has been much discussion as to the original title of the virgin priestesses of the Ephesian Artemis. It is well known, that the priestesses of several of the Greek Mother goddesses, as Rhea, Demeter, and others, were called the Melissae, the Bees, and at the beginning of our own era the priestesses of the great mother Cybele were still known by that title..." ....."It seems probable that the virgin character of the priestesses of the Great Mother had its origin in Asia, not in Greece, and if the priestesses of the Ephesian Artemis were Melissae, they could be paralleled with the Essenes, whose existence at Ephesus is undisputed." [Chapter 5, 'The Sacred Bee'].

Artemis being Apollos 'twin'. Recall what 'bees' represent. While recalling what 'food' represents in relation to Zeus who as a 'child' was fed milk and honey. Curiosity in relation to inspiration. Benefit of. Question. Which relates to 'shadow' and/or 'anima' - relative to explaining a story? [or 'journey'].

"The Egyptians integrated the Osirian principle of simultaneity - new life rising out of death - in every aspect of their art, crafts, and building construction. At the House of life [or 'Divine' House], this idea was incorporated from the beginning into the foundation of the physical structure. De Lubicz pointed out that one of the three types of temple foundations are found in Egypt, each representing a sacred principle........"....................................."The second type of foundation reveals relics from more ancient temples, carefully turned over at the root level of the new edifice to symbolize the sowing of the earlier center's sacred ''seed'' into a new layer of soil and hence, a new cycle. A process of regeneration is applied, as well as a ''hybridization'' occurring in the original seed." [Chapter 4, 'The Sacred Tradition in Ancient Egypt].

Side note: "In antiquity, the number 8 was considered interesting for purely mathematical reasons: the mathematicians of ancient Greece discovered that every odd number above 1, when squared, results in a multiple of 8 plus 1...They also discovered that all squares of odd numbers above 1 differed from each other by a multiple of 8...In architectural design, the octagon is the first form to serve as the transition from the square to the circle, which is important in the construction of domes...Eight appears as a second beginning, on a higher level...It is the day of purification as in say, the Hebrew tradition...It was convenient for the Christians to take over this idea of regeneration..Eight, is the first perfect cube {2x2x2} which represents an imprint of body and soul with the security of eternal salvation..."

"According to the testimony of many myths, the Cosmic Man {enlarged elsewhere] is not only the beginning but also the final goal of all life - of the whole of creation. ''All cereal nature means wheat, all treasure nature means gold, all generation means man,'' says the medieval sage Meister Eckhart. And if one looks at this from a psychological standpoint, it is certainly so. The whole inner psychic reality of each individual is ultimately orientated toward this archetype symbol of the Self." ['Man and his Symbol'].

"Another passage from these same texts deals with the harvesting of spelt {a primitive form of wheat} and the threshing of barley - the end of a cycle of vegetation - and the offering of grain to Osiris, promising him perpetuity through resurrection. These ceremonies are described and depicted in six small chambers divided into two groups, one on the N/W and the other on the S/E end of the roof-terrace of the temple of Hathor at Dendera."

"Evidence of this transition from hunter gatherer to settled farmer in south east Turkey comes from the discovery by geneticists that 68 modern strains of wheat derive from a form of wild wheat called einkorn that thrives to this day of the slopes of an extinct volcano named Karaca Dag, which lies some 50 miles to the N/E of Gobekli-tepe." [From the book by A. Collins}.

"They are symbols holding more symbols, which in the end resolve into the Truth which has no symbol.'Teachers' from Venus, for they were others, brought always the symbol of food and growth. Thus one of his {Melchizedek} symbols is wheat, by which people live. It is a source of nourishment, spiritual as well as physical, for in the cycle of grain, being cut down, and buried, only to rise again, are the teachings of all the great religions, and 'mystery' schools. In it, are the two great principles of life, the Law of Cycles and the Law of Sacrifice." [From the book by G. Knight].

"In the tauroctony scenes Mithras always stabs the bull in the shoulder just below the neck. Blood and sometimes 'ears of wheat' pour from the wound..." ['Galactic Alignment'].

'Higher/lower' within A-C. Representational of?

"This Melchizedek...met Abraham returning from the rout of the kings and blessed him: and Abraham gave him a tithe { one tenth} of everything as his portion. His name, in the first place, means ''king of righteousness''; next he is king of salem, that is ''king of peace''. He has no father, nor mother, no lineage; his years have no beginning, his life no end {therefore - 'aspects of' ?}...Consider now how great he must be for Abraham to the patriarch to 'give him' a tithe of the finest of the spoil." [Hebrews Chapter 7. Original reference to same in Genesis 14. 'Experience of Inner Worlds'].

'A grain of wisdom'. Question. One tenth of it? And/or recall what ''14'' and ''7''  represents.

Question. Aspects of what?

"...and in this consecration to destiny, one does well to realize that one is never alone, however alone or long the furrow one has to plough may seem." Same book.

A working example: In the present sense of the word: "I have no favoured theory by which to explain this. All i can record are my own impressions at the time, and if the conclusion is that i simply have a very suggestible and credulous imagination then so be it. However, i have been around long enough and undergone considerable training of myself and others in sorting the wheat from the chaff of subjective impressions to think that my inner perceptions were ringing true..." [from the book by G. Knight].

Synchronistic link..."Another major innovation that the European settlers adopted from the Indians at first appears to to be to minor to mention - the change from sowing seed to planting it. Most of the tradition Old World grains had very small seeds that the farmer broadcast by the handful onto the prepared ground. American Indians knew that corn could only be planted only by placing the kernels firmly into the ground. The Indians selected each seed to be planted rather than merely grabbing a random handful of seeds from a bag and throwing them. This process of selecting the seeds allowed the Indians to develop the hundreds of varieties of each plant that they cultivated. Whereas the Old World grains came in only a few forms, the Indians had many forms of dent corn, sweet corn, popcorn, flint corn, and dozens of others. They ranged in colour from yellow and red to blue and purple. Some ripened in as little as sixty days and others took several months. Some grew in very wet areas such as Florida and others in the deserts of the Southwestern United States {Anasazi?} . Similarly the Indians grew many varieties of beans and of squashes and other gourds such as chayotes. This diversity developed through the Indian farmer's profound understanding of practical genetics. To make the corn grow, the farmers had to fertilize each plant by putting corn pollen on its silk. They knew that by taking the pollen from one variety of corn and fertilizing the silk of another variety, they created corn with the combined characteristics of the two parent stalks. Today, this process is known as hybridization..." ['Indian Givers: How Native Americans Transformed the World' / J. Weatherford]. Try ''silk'' and ''hybrid''.

"Clearly, living in the first industrial age, where everyone had to have a home and be fed equally, took its toll on the population in a manner that might raise the question of who exactly 'was in charge' at Asikli Hoyuk. Curiously, one ancient tradition asserts that the forbidden fruit consumed by Adam and Eve that brought about the misery of the original sin was ' an ear of wheat' emphasizing once again that the introduction of widescale sedentary farming was at the root of humanity's 'loss of innocence'." [From the book 'Gobekli-tepe'. Emphasis, this readers]. Try ''child'' for that alternative viewpoint since the dawn of human kind.

virgo

Ear of corn? {'triple'?} and/or a stylized ''M'' ?

Analogy {and/or 'bottom up'?}..."The ceremonies with which the festival were celebrated were open to all Greeks, and later to men and women of all nationalities seeking initiation...It is sometimes held that the rites were followed by a second drama characterized by a sacred marriage, in which Persephone was wedded to Zeus, and the birth of a 'holy child' - typifying the union of the initiates with the deity and their rebirth to a new and higher life. The final stage of the initiation is known as the 'epopteia' or 'beholding'. The door of the shrine at Eleusis was opened, and the priest of the Mysteries revealed to the gaze of the initiates a sacred object in a blaze of light. This sacred object may have been an ear of corn, an epiphany of Persephone herself {the corn-goddess} and a symbol of the initiates rebirth." [From the book 'The Christ, Psychotherapy and Magic' by A. Duncan].

Question. 'Oak' Island link?

Question. When ALL the available information is assessed - {according to Accams Razor - and not those first impressions} - which is the most likely - the most plausible: - INFORMATION on seasonal  cycles - OR something else? Try ''wheat/maize'' then ''epopteia''.

'A grain of Wisdom'...

A working example?..."Even with the increased number of seekers, it is probable that those who generally seek the annihilation of the ego self in favour of the transcendent ''Overself'' {as philosopher-mystic Paul Brunton names it} will remain very small. Nevertheless, much of the spiritual hunger must be considered authentic and a good many of the metaphysical publishers, New Age store owners, and product manufacturers are involved in a ministry to humanity. Such devoted persons are in fact making our world a better place. This is the era of small presses operating on an heroic effort and a sense of mission. Gems from all parts of the world and from every conceivable religion and culture are available on virtually every corner. As might be expected, in the harvest of abundant wheat there are also plenty of tares. Yet there is reason to believe that many seekers will manage to find their way through the deluge of merchandise and be drawn towards the knowledge and teachers who are steeped in the common universal truths of compassion and surrender to the Good." ['The Wisdom of the 4th Way']. Continued elsewhere - follow the book title to 'see' it from a ''working'' {day - day} example.

A further thought : A 'connection' in relation to ''surrender'' = 'grace' ? OR at least what that word implies.

N.B. 'Kingship' taught the same thing.

E....The relationship between that most sacred name of ‘god’ in the bible...Yahweh, [ mentioned in excess of 6000 times. 6823 ‘to be’ exact ]. Six and Eight very symbolic of something else. Explained elsewhere. That sum total...[19], symbolic of that overall journey...within...’the not as yet aware’...collective effort, [ Number symbolism. Explained elsewhere ]...and the Kabbalah equivalent =YHVH, [ Hebrew esoteric. Many say...a link to the verb 'to be'. Think about it in relation to the understanding of the "Hare" symbol]. That relationship to ‘this/that ’ world/ domain [H], [ explained elsewhere ]. To each individual [V] and to our purported 'origins' [Y]. Proving at least that the word ’god ’ is primary symbolic. In other words a Concept. Hence the reason why that ‘sacred ’ word could not be spoken. A concept is there/invented/created only ‘to be’ thought about. Not spoken to. Which leads to an awareness of something. That ‘inner’ one?

Psalm xix, i.e.,19..."He set a tabernacle for the sun. Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber. His going forth is from the end of heaven. And his circuit unto the ends of it." According to the author of 'The Secret History of the World'..."it describes the marriage of the sun to Venus". Think about it relative to the, 'helical rising'...as depicted in all cultures. Link to Mithras and the 'slaying of the Bull', [ explained elsewhere ]. I.E., there's more to this world and its 'existence'... often represented;in part; as a 'Bull', i.e., "to take the bull by the horns",[key. Link to 'Pillar 'symbolism. Explained elsewhere]... represented/symbolic of a 'slaying'... than what "meets the physical eye"...and that understanding that can only be assessed by that 'inner' one, "where no foot may tread",[Hermetic equivalent].

"In the tauroctony scenes Mithras always stabs the bull in the shoulder just below the neck. Blood and sometimes 'ears of wheat' pour from the wound..." ['Galactic Alignment']. Try ''wheat''.

That link to objective / subjective. [explained elsewhere]. What the Sufi-s call "fana". Benefit of. Therefore what would that say for everything else in association with the same word? Not to mention the word and subject heading ’Religion’? That link to the ‘myth of Atlantis’ together with Cayce hall of records.

F....Relationship between the internal structure of the great pyramid, i.e., rough and smooth composition of the roof beams above ‘Kings’ chamber. Together with composition of internal passages of Granite/limestone. Link to Sarsen+blue stones of Stonehenge. Hewn/Unhewn stonework/Cedar wood of Solomons temple. The same within the 'figures' of the golden raft of El Dorado. Texture/composition of the face of the Sphinx, together with the size of the 'head' in relation to 'its' body. 'Lower' in relation to 'higher', i.e.,'Anubis' in relation to 'Horus', [by way of Osiris] and 'their' relationship to A/B/C, relative to each individual.

"The rough cubic stone is the symbol of the beginning of the material creation. The polished stone is the symbol of the work [in progress. This readers input]...on the path of return." [Extract taken from the book by J. Dubuis]. Put ''cube'' in the box.

That link to 'Labyrinths', in relation to a 'journey'. That relationship to Psychology, i.e., Anima/animus and/or shadow/awareness. The same link to ‘enlightenment’...and/or its physical counterpart...‘Mandalas’, [ representation of...i.e., Eastern esotericism ]. All in relation to the reader. An understanding of the 'Micro' within the 'Macro'. The potential of.

"The scope and volume of the tradition is a refection of the endless labyrinth of possibility which is your souls true relation to the universe. Nothing more. [Quote by M. Katz].

N. B. The word ''tradition'' is universal - it encompasses everything - All paths. Not just one aspect of it [i.e.,the Western way].

cronos"One day someone asked the saint Yahya ibn Muadh al-Razi, 'How did you come to know God?' He answered, 'By the union of opposites.' The opposites pertain to, and in fact are a requirement for, the understanding of 'gods' attributes. Facing the 'divine' truth man becomes the mirror in which the truth is reflected, but also in which the attribute of Might is reflected. Man contains the whole universe in his being: that is why he is called the unifier of multiplicity, the macrocosm. 'God' has created him with his two hands. His hand of grace and his hand of crushing power and wrath. Therefore he is a mirror that shows both sides, both that which is coarse and dense and that which is fine and exquisite." [Chapter 11, 'The Secret of Secrets']. Think about it relative to the meaning of religion. Explained elsewhere.

Neolithic equivalent. Sarsen in relation to 'blue' stones. 'See' it?

G....Connection between Oak Island [explained within] / Nebra sky disc / Voynich manuscript / The Phaistos Disk, [ explained elsewhere ]. Rosslyn Chapel / Rennes le chateau / The Oera Linda Book / and the copper scrolls. That link to ‘fairy stories’, [ essence of. Especially in relation to the the word ‘Treasure’ ]. In relation to a journey. The clue...Its an internal not external ‘Treasure’, [ explained elsewhere ].

Analogy: "Its not just a search for treasure - its a search for meaning. And nothing engages people like the search for meaning." In answer to the question by R. Laginna: ''What gets people into this mystery." ['Curse of Oak Island' / History channel. 2016].

Same link to inner/outer dimensions of ‘Temple’ structures, [ symbolism of ]. That same link to exoteric/esoteric. That link to the ’green man’. Or the hermetic equivalent ’The green language’. Or the Arabic equivalent..Al-Khidre. That link to ‘Turning over a new leaf '. Hebrew equivalent...The ‘u-turn’ in the ‘wilderness’ years. Explained elsewhere.

Paul Martin - the presenter of 'Flog It' BBC 2 {September 2016} asks the question ''Who is He'' in reference to the masonic carvings of the 'Green Man' within Southwell Minster / Nottinghamshire - ends with the quote ''we will probably never know''. Understand this subject to define that 'unknown' quantity. Enlarged elsewhere.

'Revealing The Green Man' / Mark Olly.

"In a startling twist, recent DNA analysis of royal mummies of the Armarna period has produced links back to Europe and the British Isles - even in Pharoahs. The mummies of of Amenhotep III, Akhenaten {formerly Amenhotep IV}, and Tutankhamun have produced DNA that indicates an above 70% affinity with European men, and above 94% probability that their lineage has British origins {where Swiss scientists concluded that the highest concentration of their detailed ancient DNA group can now be found}. It is thought that Akhenaten's daughter Meritaten fled to Britain following the fall of her fathers dynasty, arrived in Southern Ireland to become the tribal leader 'Scotia' {founder of the Scots} and lies buried there still. For the family to be British/Celtic in origin it implies that mercenaries arrived much earlier in the 18th Dynasty, possibly before the time of Amenhotep III around 1400 BC. Not surprising then we find an abundance of various Green Men in Egypt from as early as 1300 BC."  [Same book].

Question. If valid information - where would such a burial be placed within 'landscape symbolism' to represent a 'new beginning' ?

A {working?} example: "The Way of the Fool makes use of a language, and repertoire of terms, which requires some explanation. Almost all esoteric systems have developed one form or other of what is called 'The Language of the Birds', or the 'Green Language', as a means of communication. This is an arcane tongue which permits initiates, and those on the Path, to communicate secrets to one another in a form which is incomprehensible to those not versed in the language...The Way of the Fool is an ancient way..." ['The Zelator' / M. Hedsel].

Question. Make believe addicts?

The same applies to the narrator {A. Sooke} of 'Treasures of Ancient Greece: Age of Hero's' {enlarged elsewhere]...defining what became known as the 'Black Figure' technique as 'story telling'..."Exploitation of pots decorated with mythical themes. Here we have got folk tales that were being canonised - effectively that is what Homer was doing..."

Agree or disagree. Try ''Homer''.

Two very good books that explain those 'dimensions' [4-5 paragraphs back; especially ''three and four''] and there possible relevance both on the micro and macro level could be 'The Synchronicity Key' by Mr Wilcock [taken together with his first publication] and 'The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life' by Mr Melchizedek. Especially when both are taken into account with Mr Emoto publication [mentioned elsewhere]. Don't forget that pinch of salt, however, especially; if only for this reader; in regards to Mr Melchizedek method of getting his views across to the reader...in story form. As he says at the beginning, they may/ may not be true. But plenty of keys to be found.

That link to the Serpent / Hare symbolism, [ purpose of. Explained elsewhere ]. That link to the lifting of the ‘veil’, [ key word ]. That link to the ‘Book of revelations’, or the Greek equivalent, "Apocalypse". That final link to the 'eleventh' and 'twelfth hour' [and/or 'high noon']...in relation to 'thirteen', [with the individual in mind]..."I was a hidden treasure, and i loved to be known".[Chapter three. 'Eleventh Hour'/ M.Lings].

Analogy: 'The Twelve Keys' by Basil Valentine. [Chapter thirteen 'The Chemistry of Alchemy' / Cobb/Fetterolf/Goldwhite]. See it?

Coincidence or a meaningful one?

Practical [synchronistic?] example..."As i reached the Panthi, i overheard a classmate's remark: 'I have just learned that this year, for the first time, the required passing mark in English Literature has been lowered.' I entered the boy's room with such speed that he looked up in alarm. I questioned him eagerly. 'Long haired monk, ' he said laughingly, 'why this sudden interest in scholastic matters? Why cry in the eleventh hour? But it was true, that the passing mark had been lowered to 33 points. A few joyous leaps took me to my own room, where i sank to my knees and praised the mathematical perfections of my Divine father." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi' ].

Analogy of same; but now seen from a different 'angle'...."The Anglo Saxon 'K' in Magick, like most of Crowley's conceits, is a means of indicating the kind of ''magic'' which he performed. [What is generally termed; in Mr Crowley's case, as 'the left hand path'. One of those specialist subjects, in this case ''ritual magic'']. 'K' is the eleventh letter of several alphabets, and eleven is the principle number of magick, because it is the number attributed to the Qliphoth....the underworld of chaotic [ or 'negative'] forces that have to be conquered [ link to 'fall' and/or ''high noon''] before 'magick' can be performed." [Or studied, i.e.,lower keys. This readers input]. [Introduction, 'Magick' by A. Crowley]. 'See' anything? [ Follow 'magic' in the search box ]. While recalling the meaning of 'eleventh hour,' in relation to that 'unknown' quantity, i.e., represented in this case with the word ''underworld'' as the start point of an understanding of something.

"...I have often stated that i would exchange one moment of the magical life for a lifetime of a life without magick, and i trust that grace will be given for you to discover this singular secret - it is all true." [Extract from the book 'The Magister'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Try ''grace''.

As a side note, regardless of whether higher or lower keys are 'attempted' the principle is the same. An understanding takes place....simply because those ''keys'' are common to both. The 'lower' therefore are on an equal footing to the 'higher' [this readers opinion] but with one advantage; without having to 'participate' in the ritual stuff.

"What is understood intellectually through books and study can be experienced directly through Siddha Yoga." [Chapter 24, 'Play of Consciousness'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"For the soul grows and progresses as comprehension and intuition expand through successive acts of the spirit on the road of the Magic of Light. The wings then grow stronger, the flight itself grows longer, and the inner lamp fed on the Oil of wisdom remains constantly burning."

"The word 'spiritual' should be associated with the word 'eyes'. This is a reference to the eyes of the mind or heart. To see is to understand." [From the book by T. Nottingham].

"It becomes comprehensible from Campbell's perspective why, in this day and age, there is a reawakening interest in the symbol of the Grail, for it might be argued that our time is, in many respects, analogous to Wolfram's. While Wolfram was personally touched by the influx of ancient wisdom and Middle Eastern culture, we today have access to nearly every spiritual teaching that the world has ever produced. And as we have seen, the quest for the Grail is both an inner and outer search, while the symbolism of the Grail encompasses both the wisdom of the ancient past and the social milieu of contemporary culture. If anything, situated as we are at the crossroads between past and future, East and West - the imperative of the individual quest is now more certain than ever."[ Chapter within the book 'Alexandria' vol 1. Mentioned elsewhere]. Recall Part 1.

"Again we have definitions of the First Matter and of the Stone - a classical and oft-repeated definition. The Alchemists considered the discovery of the First Matter [explained within], so important that although unwilling or unable to give absolutely clear indications of its nature, they were anxious constantly to throw out suggestive hints. It was their belief that study and 'meditation' [explained elsewhere] would expand such hints into tangible idea's." [Chapter 3, 'The Philosopher's Stone' by I. Regardie].

"True prayer is always efficacious on the 'plane' whereon is made to act. Prayer on the physical plane consists in physical works, on the 'astral' plane it purifies the emotions through the action of the will; in the realm of the intellect study is prayer and leads to knowledge, and the highest spiritual aspirations lift man out of the turmoil of matter and brings him nearer to his own god." Emphasis this readers. [Quote taken from the book by F. Hartman].

"Think carefully about the French version of the Way of the Fool: it is La Voie du Mat...'Mat' is in maya, and in matter...It is no accident that these words with such different meanings have a communal origin, in the Sanskrit 'ma'. The Fool, the 'mat' is the one who will 'mate' with the matter to produce 'matter'...He looks through this material illusion - he 'sees' through matter - so to speak..." ['The Zelator'].

"For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened." New Testament.

"Meanwhile we have much work at hand. By reflection, by study, upon these mysteries, we can make our light glow from within.........The Alchemists themselves have promised that 'divine' aid is always forthcoming to those who in all sincerity and humility do even no more than study there writings." [Quote by from the book by I.Regardie].

As an example; through study; define the following..."Just as the practice of concentration is the ''art of forgetting'' and the practice of profound 'communion', or meditation, is the mastering of the ''art of sleeping'', so does the 'contemplation' of authentic initiation signify the mastering of the ''art of dying''. [Extract from the book by Tomberg]. Further clues in Part 1.

"Believe nothing which is unreasonable, and reject nothing as unreasonable without proper examination." quote by Gautama Buddha.

"Naturally 'forms' differ from one civilization to another, but though more accustomed myself to the Hindu forms, i have no scruple in employing others when necessary. If they can contribute to the understanding of certain points; there are no objections to this, since they are only different expressions of the same thing. Once again, truth is one, and it is the same for all those who, by whatever way, have attained to its understanding." [Chapter 7, 'The Underlying Religion: An Introduction to the Perennial Philosophy'. Mentioned elsewhere].

H....The connection between the number Twelve, i.e., the Twelve Apostles, the twelve tribes of Israel, the twelve knights of the round table; the twelve signs of the zodiac. To name but a few, and the number Thirteen. Especially in relation to the ‘missing’ thirteenth sign of the zodiac, [ ‘Arachne rising’. By J.Vogh and ‘Cities of dreams’. By S.Gooch. That same link to 'Synchronicity'. N.B. J.Vogh associates it / names it to something different. So dont forget that pinch of salt... ]. Or..."Who were these gods of heaven and earth, divine yet human, always headed by a Pantheon, or inner circle of twelve deities." [page, 87 'The 12th Planet']. Can you now see, what the author has not yet seen?

Two different aspects describing the same thing. Spot those common links to understand the whole. ''The stick across his shoulder represents the 'vegetable' dimension of his being, that lies between the spiritual part, and the animal part down below, where the dog {spotted?} clawing at his leg represents unredeemed animal elements. Indicative of. [All show in some form, a dog, more often than not following behind i.e.,unknown/unaware link]...'To dog ones footsteps'?... The unredeemed part of the vegetable body is represented by the burden carried in the sack. [Donkey link]. His three point hat alludes to the higher qualities he has yet to evolve. His upward gaze represents his aspiration towards these.'' [Chapter 19, The Secret History of the World]. Together with... ''The star Sirius however, does not stand alone. It is, in fact, part of a bright constellation we call Canis Major, the Big Dog, which trails behind Orion the Hunter. As the brightest of all the visible stars, Sirius is almost ten times more brilliant than any other star, and can be seen in broad daylight.'' [Page, 239 Black Genesis]. Together with . notice how because of that unredeemed [unknown] quantity he may fall off his own precipice. Both moon and sun are [like the dog] all behind. All a link to higher / lower, i.e.,yet to be aware of. As for the spots if someone is said to change ones spots or colors [or even stripes] What does it imply? i.e.,Jeremiah 13:23, Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots. A leopard cannot, but man/woman can, [think about it, relative to higher / lower] and we all understand that color is only skin deep. Hence the link to the definition of same [i.e.,Collins English Dictionary/ To change ones spots] to reform ones character. As will be proven when those that represent the Giza complex are discovered. Egypt's true ancestors, as speculated in such books as Black Genesis or Legacy of the Black Gods by P. Simons, i.e.,more South than North. More Ethiopian, than Mediterranean. As for the stripe analogy, of same. Herod would be a good example, of that unredeemed quantity, WHICH REMAINED UNREDEEMED. i.e., ''Tigers never change their stripes.'' For this reader however, the real questions are, [regardless even, if and when such locations are proven valid...Sense or non sense, a possibility or not? i.e.,Why go to all this time and effort?

The question is... Do those aspects relate to ‘a god/s’. Or an individual/s. If the word 'god’ is symbolic then it has to be an individual/s. If so. Who is the individual/s? That connection to the ‘dollar bill’ and the 'fool' of the Tarot. Or the ‘heel’ stone of Stonehenge, [to name but a few], if only in the still...‘unknown’ state. Represented more often than not as 'shadow' ....

i.e., taking the Zodiac as an example. Those twelve signs / keys all have positive and negative attributes. Those taken together with what encompasses them. Twelve plus what they are part of. Twelve plus that one ’whole’...together with...’lucky / unlucky’. Symbolism of. Hebrew equivalent = ‘Urim / Thummim’, i.e., in relation to the twelve 'aspects' of the 'breast plate', ['heart' symbolism link]. Common parlance, "a throw of the dice", in relation to 'chance' and 'fate', but now with the 'individual' effort. An individual 'effort', by way of...thought, emotion and will, [ a balance of].

''The harder you work the luckier you get." [BBC 'Operation Gold Rush' with D. Snow]. The same could be said for both a mental and physical task?

Or the Eastern equivalent = ‘I Ching’ , ...in relation to a possible result...one way or the other. Either in a positive or negative ‘direction’. From either an aware/unaware position. In relation to a possible potential. A possible positive potential. That link to the ‘development of’ and the ‘return of’... In relation to an understanding. As indicated in such books as...’The Secret of the Golden Flower’. By T.Cleary...and/or Richard Wilhelms translation of same, [ especially and if only because of Mr C. Jung commentary in the same book in relation to ‘synchronicity’ and the title of the book. Together with Mr Wilhelms opinions on the benefit of those ‘general ideas’.

Side note: Those broken / unbroken lines within the hexagram forms of I Ching in relation to: "...This law shows why straight lines never occur in our activities, why, having begun to do one thing, we in fact constantly do something entirely different, often the opposite of the first, although we do not notice this...All this and many other things can only be explained with the help of the law of octaves together with an understanding of the role and significance of 'intervals' which cause the line of the development of force to constantly change, to go in a broken line, to turn round, to become its 'own opposite' and so on. Such a course of things, that is, a change of direction, we can observe in everything. After a certain period of energetic activity or strong emotion or a right understanding a reaction comes, work becomes tedious and tiring; moments of fatigue and indifference enter into feeling; instead of right thinking a search for compromises begins; suppression, evasion of difficult problems. But the line continues to develop though now not in the same direction as at the beginning..."    ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

Or the Hebrew equivalent. ’The Thirteen Petaled Rose’. By A.Steinsaltz. Compare to 'The Rose of the World' by D. Andreev. An individual who was not a member of any 'school' or 'mystery' club, and yet who arrived at the same answers. Who understood that same framework. Only to be read when you feel like a good ‘head scratch’...and when you want to compare it to the other three. Indicative of finding the ‘right’ author. One that you can relate to. As you do with any subject that one has an interest in.

Some you will find irritating others not so. Persevere with it. Find the ‘good’ ones. The ones you relate to. Then find out who they recommend or what books they read.

Especially noteworthy because most individuals; certainly at the outset; are of the impression that all authors of this subject-because of its nature- i.e., because its- "secret stuff"...would know what they are writing about. Therefore more often than not that same reader would assume that if they cannot understand a particular author-especially at the outset- then it must be 'their fault'. The readers fault. Not so. For the reasons given above.

".......Ever since the 'Afrokhans' have had contact with, and were invaded by Europeans, we have adopted their meanings and definitions of words, in the European languages we use. However, we would do well to turn those meanings on their heads, or at least use them in our own favour. By doing this, we are able to examine them from another angle [key, i.e.,perpective] and better understand what they really mean. Remember....'all truths are but half truths'. For example we are led to believe that the 'underworld' is the abode of the devil, or the abode of demons. This is by way of EXOteric meaning or typically European interpretation. ESOterical definition of the underworld however, suggest that the 'underworld' is actually referring to the 'Collective Unconscious', the Amenta or Akasha of the Afrokhan man and woman." [i.e.,indicative of its origins]. [Page 50, 'Legacy of the Black Gods' by P. Simons]. .....

"The underworld in this context refers to an aspect of the 'Divine' astral light, which is divided into two main regions...the Amentet and the Tuat. The Tuat represents the 'lower', the underworld or the subconscious mind, and Amentet represents the 'upper', or the conscious mind." [Same page, same book]. See anything? Ancient African equivalent.

Analogy of same; but note from a different view point; from a different perspective BUT those common factors {i.e.,keys} are the same : ..."The 'Investigator' remembers thinking during the six weeks between major experiments, that whatever he had tuned into was not ''Cosmic Consciousness'' but a kind of planetary consciousness; he wondered who coined the term, ''cosmic consciousness,'' and what it contained..." [Extract from the book 'The Cosmic Trigger']. Enlarged further on.

"Diodorus Siculus [Greek Historian] writes in the time of Augustus [1st century BC]: ''Now the Ethiopians, as historians relate, were the first of all men and the proofs of this statement, they say, are manifest. For that they did not come into their land as immigrants from abroad, but were the natives of it and so justly bear the name of autochthones [sprung from the soil itself] is, they maintain, conceded by practically all men..." "They also say that the Egyptians are colonists sent out by the Ethiopians, Asar [Osiris] having been the leader of the colony. For, speaking generally, what is now Egypt, they maintain, was not land, but sea, when in the beginning the universe was being formed; afterwards, however, as the Nile during its times of inundation carried down the mud from Ethiopia, land was gradually built up from the deposit...And the larger parts of the customs of the Egyptians are, they hold, Ethiopian, the colonists still preserving their ancient manners. For instance, their beliefs that the Kings are Gods, the very special attention which they pay to their burials, and many other matters of a similar nature, are Ethiopian practices, while the shapes of their statues and the forms of their letters are Ethiopian; for of the two kinds of writing which the Egyptians have, that which is known as popular [demotic,i.e.,exoteric] is learned by everyone, while that which is called Sacred [hieratic,i.e.,esoteric], is understood only by the priests of the Egyptians, who learnt it from their Fathers as one of the things which are not divulged, but among the Ethiopians, everyone uses these forms of letters."

For this reader the ‘forward’ of any book was the most important. Not only does the reader get a good idea of why the book is being written in the first place...but more importantly, how it is written and ‘explained’. Just as we ‘speak the way we think’. We also write the way we think...do we not. Think about it, in relation to the ‘types’ of individuals who do write about ’it’. Rather than leaving / relying on just those ’first impressions’. Question. At what stage does anyone with an interest in a subject decide to 'express' it in written form. In book form. For others to read.

Someone once said - that each person has a book 'inside of them'. True/untrue?

"Those committed to the inner life and its power of transformation ought to be grateful for the many avenues now available for spiritual knowledge. The chances are increased that the right book will fall into the right hands at the right time." ['The Wisdom of the 4th Way'/mentioned elsewhere].

That final link to such works as ‘Man and his symbols’. By C. Jung and especially ... ‘Memories, dreams, reflections'. By C. Jung. In relation to his very own...’Corner stone’. Understanding this subjects use of the above explains why the 'corner' stone of both the Whitehouse and the Capital are 'lost'. [Bred Meltzer. Satellite channel]. i.e.,once understood, that which was once 'lost' is now found. That 'corner stone' that the individual [ the 'seeker'] can now 'build' on. That same stone that now becomes the 'head'. Question. Keystone?

"Self-observation is the key."

A working example?..."It is not possible to practice self observation all the time. In fact, one of the critical discoveries in this effort lies precisely in seeing how often we forget to do this. This 'forgetting' is of course falling into the natural state of Sleep in which we all live as stimulus response machines, to use Gurdjieff's language. Remember that this primary effort of the Work is a first step that evolves with personal experience. What you are creating by this effort is: a) a point of awareness beyond your mechanical behavior, and b) a gathering of more objective information about yourself. This kind of self-knowledge is the cornerstone to spiritual evolution, as was stated by Socrates and all the sages of humanity. Since we live primary in illusions and self delusions, it is necessary to face the reality of how much of our ''pictures'' of ourselves are imaginary. As the Hindu's say, we live in ''Maya'' {illusion} and it is this ignorance that keeps us asleep to our true potential and birthright." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way]. Continued elsewhere.

arch

A Lemniscate arch. Known as a figure of eight. Link to Lemnos. A Greek Island : the eighth largest in Greece. Sacred to Hephaestus. The Greek equivalent of the Roman god Vulcan. Recall the number associated with the Greek word for Jesus. Coincidence?

"The purpose of this stone can only be understood by another category of builders, who at this stage have not yet been brought in: they are the ones who have passed 'from the try - square to the compass', and by this distinction we must naturally understand the geometric forms which these two instruments serve respectively to trace, namely, the square and the circle, which as we know symbolize in a general way earth and heaven. Here the square form corresponds to the lower part of the edifice and the circular form to the upper part, which in this instance must therefore consist of a dome or a vault. Indeed the 'corner stone' or 'arch stone' is in reality a keystone.

Question. A fictional story? A convoluted, twisted one?

Coomaraswamy says that to give the true meaning of the expression...''is become the head of the corner''...could be translated as is ''become the keystone of the arch,'' which is perfectly exact, and thus this stone, by its shape as well as position, is effectively unique in the entire edifice, as it must be in order that it may symbolize the principle on which all depends.".......[ or is 'built' on. This readers input].

"The great hat in the form of a lemniscate which the 'magician' wears, like his attitude of perfect ease, indicates this transposition. For the lemniscate [the horizontal eight] is not only the symbol of infinity, but also that of rhythm, of the respiration and circulation - it is the symbol of eternal rhythm or the eternity of rhythm..." [Taken from the book by Topmberg; 'Meditations on the Tarot: A Journey into Christian Hermeticism'].

As unlikely as it may seem [i.e.,if only to those first impressions] - try ''rhythm''.

Hindu analogy on the same principle - ''Vedanta = A school of Indian philosophy that emphasizes one supreme Principle, which is the foundation of the universe." Recall the importance of the 'Lotus' to that religion as a whole, in relation to a 'foundation', i.e.,"O Sadguru, giver of grace! You yourself are the knowledge of perfection i received from you. You fully pervade everywhere, and Siddha students see you repeatedly in the Blue Pearl. O blue jewel, Bhagawan Shri Nityananda, i bow to your lotus feet." [ Extract taken from the 'Invocation' to the book, 'Play of Consciousness' by Swami Muktananda].

Further clues..."Emulating the sayings of his Himalayan guru, Ali [also known as 'Sri M' ] strongly asserts that one has to live like the lotus, which, while growing in water and deriving its nourishment from it, [link to 'mud' symbolism] still does not let water wet its petals."

"Today I see Muhammad ascend. The friend is everywhere, in every action. Love, a lattice. Body, fire. I say, show me the way. You say, put your head under your feet.

The key stone, that in this example could be represented as the navel. The midriff of the human form.

"We have here yet another application of the analogy, which has been explained already on previous occasions, between the 'first' and the 'last', or the 'beginning' and the 'end'. The construction represents manifestation, in which the principle appears only as the ultimate completion: and it is precisely in virtue of the same analogy that the 'first stone' or the 'foundation stone' may be regarded as a 'reflection' of the last stone which is the true cornerstone."[Chapter 43, 'Symbols of Sacred Science']. Think about both paragraphs in relation to those missing 'corners' of the Palenque Lid. Once understood...''that which was lost [or 'missing' ] is now found.''

"Metals are purified by 'fire', and the emotions by suffering. The lower desires must starve to nourish the higher; the animal passions must be crucified and die; but the angel of Will removes the stone [ 'lid' link] from the sepulchre and liberates the higher energies from the sphere of selfishness and darkness; and then the resurrected virtues will begin to live and become active in a new world of enduring light and harmony." [Chapter 5, from the book by F. Hartman]. That link to ''transcentent third.''  Try ''mettle'' and/or ''cattle''.

''The whole gamut of human experience {and/or emotions}''. Question. What animal represents that final word? Why?

A working example..."Gurdjieff had his students start the day at the Prieure where he taught for some years with 45 minutes of silence. This was not a time to practice self-observation - that is for use in the ''heat of the battle'' when there are mechanics at work to be discovered." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way']. Continued elsewhere.

''45'' in relation to three-quarters of something. 'Fire' in relation to ''battle''. Anything?

Question. Was there a lid in the 'Kings' chamber?

All the above proving the viability of the subject. Regardless of ones first impressions of it. More sense than non-sense. The real question is [if only to this reader] Why. Why go to all this time and effort?

Question. ''Mercy'' link?

J[a]...Using Egyptian esoteric lore. Which according to most; all else originated from. One can establish as the French archaeologist Auguste Mariette attempted such ‘secrets’ as...the burial place of Khufu and his two close associates of Giza fame. All three are buried in the same place. Why? Because the whole giza complex is symbolic of that same personal journey. Symbolic of a concept. Herodotus was only told; or only gave; part of the answer. He was told that Khufu was buried under the pyramid. Symbolically he is; at a distance; but not directly...

and the possible burial place of Akhenaten. A ‘different’ belief system represented by a different location, i.e., Amarna = 'Middle' nome = 'Hare' symbol.

The author Robert Bauval also falling under the same 'spell' - believing to have identified something under the Sphinx - with his interpretation of subject material as quoted within the program 'Ancient Aliens: Mysteries of the Sphinx' : i.e.,'' I have under me the knowledge of our genesis''. Something indeed will be found - but not directly under it.

"Ancient Egyptian culture and philosophy is crucial to the understanding of world history and spirituality. One of the misconceptions which is still promoted and prevalent in modern times is that Egypt is not a part of, or located on, the continent of Africa. Rather, it is espoused that Egypt is in the Middle East. This information is incorrect, as Egypt is where it always has been located, though in history it extended beyond its current margins, in the N/E corner of the Africa Continent. Further, it is widely believed by others that even though Egypt may be in Africa, that it was not an African country, and still others may agree that it was an African country, but not originally founded and populated by ''black'' African people [like present day Algeria, which is in Africa but populated by Middle Easterners - Arabs]. These errors must be redressed in order for humanity to move forward. Truth must be promoted, and in this case, it is crucial that this particular truth be brought forth into our human sphere of knowledge, as it offers a chance to humanity for achieving some level of peace and harmony as a world community. Also it will promote the redemption of African culture and thereby uplift African society and thereby the world. Africa provides a common ground, literally and figuratively, for humanity to come together, if we so choose, as both the physical origins of modern day humans is rooted in African soil, and also the spiritual roots of all religions and spiritual traditions can be traced there as well. Most of the wars that have occurred in human history after the close of Ancient Egyptian history have been due to religious differences, especially between orthodox [exo-teric] aspects of the three major religions - Christianity , Islam and Judaism - and the various subgroups of religions to which they each have given rise. Yet, all of these religions, and as we shall see, all spiritual traditions of the world, have their birthplace in Kamit. They are as if children and grandchildren of the Kamitan language..."

Question. Imhotep?

'The Meaning of Hotep: A Nubian Study Guide' by Anpu Unnefer Amen.

"The word 'Hotep' was fashioned by the indigenous Africans of antiquity living along the Nile Valley who are commonly referred to today as Nubians, Kushites, Ethiopians, Egyptians and Sudanese. However, it was the civilisation of Nubia that gave birth to the language of the Metu Neter or 'Words of God', otherwise known as hieroglyphics {hiero = sacred} +{ glyphs = writings}. And it is in this language of Metu Neter that the word 'Hotep' has been preserved." Back cover, same book. Try ''logos''.

A work in progress? "Endorsement of the view that the planets visible to the naked eye were represented by the gods came about in an unusual way. After two years cataloguing the Leigh papers, we began, warily at first, to derive astronomical images from the narrative. One of the first came from a few words in Book 1 that record the return of the gods after a few days feasting in Ethiopia: 'The immortal gods came back in a body {at dawn} to Olympus, and Zeus led the way.' An image was created of Homer describing a time when the crescent moon and the five planets visible with the naked eye could be seen close together in the sky at dawn and rising towards the zenith of the heavens, the domain of Zeus. Our inquiry into whether such a conjunction of planets is rare or common were not at first successful, but eventually the happy chance of reading an article in an astronomy magazine showed that such a conjunction on the 5th march 1953 BC had been recorded in an ancient Chinese text and had so impressed Chinese astronomers that it was used as a new starting point for their calendar. That conjunction would also have been visible from Greece {Egypt?}. In fact researchers Kevin D. Pang and John A. Banqert discovered that the five naked-eye planets had been in the sky for some days before that date, and on 26th February 1953 BC their alignment had been closer than at any time in the past six millennia. But extra significance was given to the conjunction when the new moon joined the planetary grouping at dawn on 5th March, thus adding the goddess Hera to the planets representing by Athene, Aphrodite, Poseidon, Ares and Apollo. Although they differ in literal expression, a number of translations of this event from the Iliad reflect similar astronomical images - That the gods returned in 'a line' or 'a cortege' or 'are forever all in one company'. A literal translation from the Greek texts says: 'From that {time} became the TWELFTH DAWN, then indeed to Olympus went all the ever-being gods, all at the same time and Zeus led. Whether the conjunction described by Homer is the same one that so influenced the Chinese may never be known, but so rare are such events that it is possible that it was, and had remained alive in popular memory in Greece {Egypt?} through being preserved in allegory." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

heraklion-helmet

"Meriones gave Odysseus a bow, a quiver and a sword, and put a cleverly made leather helmet on his head. On the inside there was a strong lining on interwoven straps , onto which a felt cap had been sewn in. The outside was cleverly adorned all around with rows of white tusks from a shinny tooth boar, the tusks running in alternate directions in each row." [Homer's Iliad]. Question. 'Straps' in relation to   ''Horn of Plenty'' ?

"Poseidon had gone to visit the Ethiopians worlds away. Ethiopians off at the farthest limits of mankind, a people split in two; one part where the Sungod sets and part where the Sungod rises. There Poseidon went to receive an offering, bulls and rams by the hundred - far away at the feast, the Sea-Lord sat and took his pleasure." [From Book 1 'The Odyssey'. Translation by R. "Fagles].

N.B. Poseidon = the common factor between BOTH books. The foundation {twelve?} of something? Coincidence or a meaningful one? Try ''girdle'' to understand {determine/estimate?} the possible beginning {start point?} of something.

Side note?..."Bootes as the Herdsman {'Ox driver'} of the heavens is an ancient concept, and, in identifying this constellation with Odysseus, Homer acknowledges this pastoral association when he describes the Greek warrior stalking 'in front of the ranks as it were some great wholly ram ordering his ewes'. There are also geographical links between the shape of Bootes and the homelands of Odysseus in the islands of the Ionian Sea...The upper part of his helmet is identifiable as a shallow dome of faint stars in the head of Bootes...One of the outstanding features of Bootes is the staff that points towards the north celestial pole and at the time in which the Iliad is set pointed towards the declining pole star Thuban {Draconis}."

According to popular legend, Alexander the Great {the 'horned one' or 'two horned' - a reference to the ram horns on his helmet} traveled to the 'land of darkness,' beyond the setting sun, in search of the Fountain of Life, which was said to exist 'in the north, beneath the pole star'. His guide and vizier on the journey was a mysterious al-Khidr, a wise man; however when they came to a fork in the road, both men went in different directions. Only al-Khidr found the Fountain of Life and drinking from its waters..." [From the book 'Gobekli-tepe'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Question. Mayan equivalent?

Elephants, they say, never forget. From those things they are taught at a 'young' age. 'Returning' every year to the same old haunts, especially in relation to water. Matriarchs leading the way. That knowledge that becomes 'instinctive', intuitive, the more it is applied day by day. It keeps mind/body/soul alive. The gateway to heart and soul. Thinking [or Phrygian] cap time.

 

caps"Semantically, we perceive elephants in terms of their ivory [Greek elephos]. In Sanskrit, however, 'hasta' is ''hand'' and hasti, meaning 'the creature with the hand', is the elephant {the trunk being the hand}... Whence from the Hindustani comes the Anglo-Indian 'hatty' for an elephant...Tennyson, in 'Merlin and Vivien', wrote of elephants; 'serpent hands'...The Roman etymologist Varro in the 1st century B.C. - wondered why the elephant was known as the 'Luca bos', in which 'bos' is ''ox'' but 'Luca' possibly ''light'' from 'lux'...It is curious that Varro didn't refer to the elephants in the triumphal march after Caesar's conquest of Gaul [58-51 BC]. Suetonius wrote that Caesar - 'ascended the Capital by the light of forty elephants on the right and left bearing lamps [Lychni]'. Andrea Mantegna, in his painting commonly known as 'The Elephants' [c. 1500-1506], showed three elephants; preceded by an ordinary bos, or ox; with garlands on their heads and tall flickering torches mounted on their backs. If this doesn't provide an etymology 'light oxen' it does at least suggest that Caesar was following the logic of such an etymology." [Taken from the book 'The Book of Babel'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Question. Did Caesar know something? The tail end of something begins {the process?} of something else? As with the 'tail' end of a 'dog' and/or 'bear' ? Try 'Homer's Secret Iliad'.

The author therefore attempting to speculate on the possible connection between ''elephant'' and the ''ox'' or Great Bear {by way of ''the Plough'' constellation}. North in relation to South?

Analogy?..."Since the days of antiquity, observers of the skies around the world have arranged stars into patterns, and always for the same reasons - to bring order and understanding to the heavens. Some groups of stars are so striking that they have been seen in a similar way in cultures widely separated in distance and time. A common strand of human thought is seen, for instance, in the way in which three different societies perceived the shape of the seven best known stars of Ursa Major that are predominately known today as the 'Plough' or 'Big Dipper'. In Homeric astronomy they represent the wain or wagon on which King Priam took Hector's body back to Troy. Edna Leigh wrote: ' Among the Arabians, the Big Dipper represents a bier and mourners. The four stars which form the wagon or cart represent the bier, and those in the handle are the mourners'. A similar funereal image was seen by the Sioux, native American Indians." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Death / rebirth? Represented with Achilles friend - 'Phoenix' of the Iliad ? Recall what Achilles represents.

Question. ''order and understanding to the heavens'' = the very first representation of it? i.e.,from the 'oral' tradition? Therefore ''top/down''.

Axe heads and chalk balls found in most but in some the bones {leg/thigh?} of the prehistoric Auroch were found. The etymology of which links to both the German and British ''oxen.'' Such quotes are made by the narrators Alice Roberts and Phil Harding as: ''Putting one {i.e.,axe head} in a pit seems like a huge sacrifice." and/or ''To throw away a perfectly good axe. Why do it?'' and/or " Not on the average take away menu.'' {In reference to the Auroch bones}. Also found in one of the henges the large skull of a dog or wolf. ['Digging for Britain'. Episode 1].

'The White {chalk} Horse'. Question. What does the 'horse' represent?

"...But as soon as something happens which does arouse and challenge us, our previous and unnoticed passions immediately break out like uncontrolled horses that have long been kept unexercised and idle..." ['The Philokalia'].

A {working?} example in the 'Micro' sense of the 'word': "Possibility is one thing, and the realization of the possibility is quite a different thing. Let us now try to see what this possibility depends upon and what its realization means.' Then G. repeated briefly all that had been said before about the 'structure' of man and the world. He drew the diagram of the ray {key} of creation and the diagram of the four {key} bodies of man. But in relation to the four bodies of man he introduced a detail which he had not mentioned before. He again used the Eastern comparison of man with a 'carriage', a 'horse', a 'driver', and 'master' {''teacher'' link} - and drew the diagram with one addition that was not there before. 'Man is a complex organization,' he said, 'consisting of four parts which may be connected or unconnected, or badly connected. The carriage is connected with the horse by shafts, the horse is connected to the driver by reins, and the driver is connected to the master by the master's voice. But the driver must hear and understand the master's voice. He must know how to drive and the horse must be trained to obey the reins. As to the relation between the horse and the carriage, the horse must be properly harnessed. Thus there are 'three' connections between the 'four' sections of this complex organization. If something is lacking in one of the connections, the 'organization' cannot act as a single whole...

Side note: " A few years later he [Wolfgang Pauli] was to come across the same numbers again in Carl Jung's psychology, based as it was in alchemy. He was adamant that ''in neither case was it by any means Mr. C. Jung who suggested it to me, nor was there an advance conscious intention for me to grapple with figuring out the problem of three and four. Consequently i am rather certain that objectively there is an important psychological and, perhaps, natural philosophical problem connected with these numbers." Enlarged elsewhere.

Continued..."The connections are therefore no less important than the actual 'bodies'. Working on himself man works simultaneously on the 'bodies' and on the 'connections'. Work on oneself must begin with the driver. The driver is the mind. In order to hear the 'masters' voice, the driver, first of all, must not be 'asleep', that is, he must wake up. Then it may prove that the master speaks a language that the 'driver' does not understand. The driver must learn this language. When he has learned it, he will understand the 'master'. But concurrently with this he must learn to 'drive' the horse, to harness it to the carriage, to 'feed' and 'groom' it, and to keep the carriage in order...The horse is our emotions. The carriage is the body. The mind must learn to control the emotions. The emotions always pulls the body after them. This is the order in which work on oneself must proceed. But observe again that work on the 'bodies', that is, the driver, the horse, and the carriage, is one thing. And work on the 'connections', that is, on the drivers understanding, which unites him to the master; on the reins, which connect him with the horse, and on the 'shafts' and the 'harness', which connect the horse with the carriage - is quite another thing." ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

bootes1

Refresher: "Bootes as the Herdsman {'Ox Driver'} of the heavens is an ancient concept..."

A working {oxen?} example - but now in the 'Macro' sense of the 'word': "Other aspects of the constellation directed her eyes to the coastline, to Mount Ossa and to Mount Pelion, while its strangely shaped 'head' and 'legs' projected an image of the Bay of Pegasus itself. She then turned to the Catalogue of Ships. Of the region surrounding the Bay of Pegasus, Homer says the regiment of men came from 'Pherae and the populous city of Iolcus', and they were led by Eumelus. She delved into the Iliad for other references to Eumelus, and discovered that the descriptive narrative she found could be linked to the visual qualities of Pegasus and its relationship to adjacent constellations. Eumelus is famous for his 'matched' pair of horses, described thus: 'Eumelus mares were foremost in the chase, fierce in the fight their nostrils breathed a flame. Their height, their colour, and their age the same.' The E. V. Rieu translation says that the horses were joined by a yoke that was as true as a plumb line. A modern chart of the constellations shoes that two of the brightest stars in Pegasus {Scheat/Markab} are indeed the same colour and brightness. What is more, when the constellation is at its highest point as it crosses the sky Scheat lies almost directly north of Markab in the Square of Pegasus and an imaginary line drawn from them down to the earth {'horizontal'} - would make an angle of almost 90 degrees. Later we were to find evidence of the astronomical association of Eumelus, when during the funeral games in Book 23, his yoke breaks...Scheat {one end of the yoke} is a variable star that can be seen with the naked eye - which is identified, by Homer, as the 'snapping yoke'...Eumelus then tumbles from his chariot and falls beneath its wheel - {represented?} with ''the Circlet of Pisces that lies below Pegasus in the sky." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Continued....Put it all together and/or from a different perspective: "It is not that the sense life is to be negated or outwardly discontinued, as impractically taught by some Sankhyas. It is an inner withdrawal that is to be practiced, a withdrawal to 'higher levels' that will in itself bring that outer harmonization which is essential if the buddhi is to be attained. In the old symbol of the chariot, the horses of the senses are to be held back [ nigrihita] by the reins of the mind, but it is not intended that they be unyoked from the chariot or that their movement should be stopped altogether..." Enlarged elsewhere.

oxen3

"THE FORE-LEG OF OX'' - hieroglyph of ancient Egypt is an old hieroglyph - it represented the 'Big Dipper'. It came to have many uses over 3000 years." {Wiki}. Question. Food for thought?

"What we call a symbol is a term, a name, or even a picture that may be familiar in daily life; yet that possesses specific connotations in addition to its conventional and obvious meaning. It implies something vague, unknown, or hidden from us. As an example take the case of the Indian who, after a visit to England, told his friends at home that the English worship animals, because he had found eagles, lions, and oxen in old churches. He was not aware {nor are many Christians} that these animals are symbols of the Evangelists and are derived from the vision of Ezekiel, and that this in turn has an analogy to the Egyptian Horus and his four sons...Thus a word or an image is symbolic when it implies something more than its obvious and immediate meaning. It has a wider ''unconscious'' aspect that is never precisely defined or fully explained." [ 'Man and His Symbols'. Enlarged elsewhere

Question. Lion = Mark / Eagle = John / Ox = Luke. Which of the four sons of Horus represent the Egyptian equivalent of the ''Ox''? AND WHY? Try ''four''.

A side step...In the Hermes / Asclepius, Hermetic text, Hermes talks about a 'transformation' that is "wrought inside the process of time",[chapter six. 'The Source Field Investigations]. The author speculates about same, in relation to 'the Precession' cycle. Think about it, in relation to 'groove' and 'repetitive' symbolism, [benefit of, in relation to the 'Ka']. Knowing that 'time' in its basic form could be described as 'segments' ['spine' link] within a learning process. Each 'learning curve' is a 'step' by step process, where time is relevant both external and internal, in relation to that 'development' . The most important point, however [according to this subject, that is, once again by implication] is that... 'benefit of'... is especially relevant in 'B', in order; through a 'learning process', [by way of a positive / negative aspect 'understanding'] to get to 'C'. Should B/C exist of course. Remember objectivity at all times, i.e.,at least attempt it ,rather than allowing those emotions to dictate where on that learning curve you find yourself.

N.B. 'The Thigh of the Ox' in the shape of the Egyptian Adze. Question. What 'ceremony' was associated with it?

Question 2. Play time addicts?

'New Model of the Universe' / P. D. Ouspensky.

Cleopatra identified with the ‘Triple Uraeus’, [explained elsewhere, i.e., A-C. The full S/P ]. Notice...A few decades later ‘Jesus’ arrives on the scene. He his now able to learn all the above in his ’missing years’. To be ‘applied’ between 30-33. Both significant numbers, [ see number symbolism etc ]. Proving that through objective research / analysis rather than leaving all to those first impressions...a certain logic ‘shines’ through, [a link to the true meaning of the "shining ones", i.e., ’Devas’, [explained elsewhere, together with that words link to 'music' symbolism, explained within]. Proving again the viability of the subject regardless of ones opinion of it. Ones first impressions of it.

"...the 'nails' of objectivity - which give conscience to thought." The symbol of which is the Crown of Thorns, i.e.,"The 'thorns' of the crown center function as the 'nails' of objectivity..." [Taken from 'letter 5' from within the book by Tomberg].

cap3

Question. Mayan equivalent of 90 degrees? i.e., 'ear' {lobe} in relation to 'middle' of forehead. Together with 'Hands' = S/E - N/W. 'Heads' = N/E - S/W. 'Point of Beard' = 'Crossover' point?

"All the celebrated songs of India have been composed by devotees of the 'divine'. The Sanskrit word for ''musician'' is bhagavathar, - ''he who sings the praises of god."...Because man himself is an expression of the Creative Word..." try ''logos'' to see it from a different {western?} perspective {i.e., 'angle'}.

Part of the purpose within the ‘design’ is to impart that same information to others. According to these authors it is part of the ‘course’. A prerequisite of attaining that ultimate goal, i.e., [C]. Hence the reason why; in most cases; its freely given. Misguided anthropology / Philanthropy? False altruism?

cross

The Cross. Its true representation? As a means...?

"It is from god, so hear! and to 'god' do you return! When you hear what i bring, learn! Then with understanding see the details in the whole, then give it to those who seek it, and stint not. This is the mercy that encompasses you; so extend it." [Preface by Al-Arabi to the book 'The Bezels of Wisdom'].

Question. Mercy in relation to 'grace'. What figure represents it - Is associated with it?

Representation / symbolism of that ‘giving back’ takes different forms, depending like all else on time / place and culture. Its main example given by the same person mentioned above, [the Jesus chap]... ‘returning for 40 days’. To be seen by his close friends and strangers. Indicative of something being verified. Indicative of a ‘potential’ accessible to all. ’Four’ and multiples / series of., i.e., 4/40/400... indicative of the physical world. Especially in relation to the 'Venus cycles' {of which the Mayan culture had a vested interest in}-  relative to the 'morning star' representing an awakening of something. As explained in such books as 'The Sacred History'. Mentioned within {parenthesis, this readers].

"Still another astronomical explanation of the importance of 40 can be found in the 40 aspects of Saturn which, according to the Bible, is the star of Judah." ['Mystery of Numbers'].

Side note. Green jade in relation to Venus and teeth {i.e.,the same embedded in the teeth of 'Kings']. Try ''teeth''. Think about it relative to the precession - as indicated within such works as 'Galactic Alignment'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Put those symbols together to understand something other than the obvious, i.e.,Tau cross; figure four: 'light' as opposed to 'dark' i.e.,aware /unaware; blue / red; 12th card in relation to 'high noon' or 'zenith'; etc.

As is same with the character shown on the ’hangmans card’ of Tarot fame. One leg in the shape of a figure ’4’. Notice the expression on face. Indicative of a willingness to learn [ ‘return’.] From understanding something of ’the above’. To imparting it below. Symbolic of that ‘position’...The upside down one. Or even the head [and therefore 'expression' ] of the Sphinx; in relation to the Great pyramid. The 'horizontal' at the lower end of the 'vertical'. The upside down cross. Imparting that knowledge, indicative of north / south, ['dry' way link. Also take note...all 'entrances' on all three pyramids....on the North side]. South to North being indicative of that return journey. Thinking time.

The beginning of which is represented by the 'offset' pyramid, indicative of the 'fallen' state. Hence the reason why they only align when the figure of Orion is ''upside down." [Discovery channel 2015]. That same intent that is represented with the ‘Quernstone’...but now in relation to the ‘journey’. The later represents the individual effort, [Micro]...as the former does to the collective one, [Macro]. Explained elsewhere.

Try ''quern'' for other examples - to see if you agree or disagree.

Nordic mythology ‘starts’ off from that ‘intention’. Odin learns...in order to give back. Very well explained, from both an objective and subjective point of view, relative to "turning points in the evolution of consciousness", and that 'development' throughout the ages, within the book 'The Sacred History' by Jonathan Black.

A more practical example; now represented in its physical form; is the American medal of Honour. The ‘upside down’ Star/pentagram. That word pentagram; if allowed to; can play on the imagination because of those undisciplined first impressions. Due to the environment that we live in. Sometimes called the upside down cross. Its negative attribute given by some because of ‘Peter’ being crucified in the upside down position. Remember ‘Peter’ was giving back. Imparting those new ideas to anyone who would listen. Some stories say...It was his assailants who chose his final resting position. The ‘unconscious’ aspect of the same. Thinking cap time, i.e.,possible synchronistic link.

Wet and dry. Anything?

That same unconscious aspect that can be represented with salt water. That American ’upside down’ star/medal that has the Roman ’goddess’ Minerva, [explained elsewhere], as its central emblem, regardless of army / navy / pilots, i.e., Land / Sea / Air. Think about it. ‘Minerva’ in relation to ‘the self’ in relation to the ‘whole’. What better example [as a representation of something], could there be of someone who ‘returns’...In order to help someone else. Co-incidence? Or a ‘meaningful’ one.

"In classical antiquity '17' appears in connection with warfare and heroism." [i.e.,Hiram Abif link]. Enlarged elsewhere.

Side note: "Now, the only glyph on the outside of the pyramid {north side} was that on the portal of the double arch, cut into the 17th course of the exterior of the pyramid. This hieroglyph is the horizontal line." ['The Zelator']. Try ''horizontal''.

Synchronistic?...'The 15:17 To Paris. A True Story...' - Spencer Stone. Recall what ''15'' implies.

Eastern equivalent?..."In the East, the realm of Pre-eminent Happiness is Bhagavan Vajra-Sattva Akshobhya, who is pictured as blue in colour, seated on a throne supported by elephants, and holding a five pronged dorje. The dorje is a Tibetan form of magic wand, being a thunderbolt sceptre. For Westerners this could easily be regarded as a wand, with a star or pentagram at its tip; a five pointed star that has all the implications and power of the 'lightening flash' of the Qabalistic Tree of Life, that traces the descent of force from the heights of creative power. This buddha is known as the hero-minded one, or one of indestructible mind. In short he is a veritable Heracles. He is embraced by the Mamiki the Divine Mother, and from them radiates the white light of the principle of consciousness." [Extract from the book by G. Knight].

"The Tibetan system proceeds to elaborate very considerably upon the five-fold wheel."

Question. Where have you seen the elephant before relative to the number 'five'? Put all the other {keys?} together to understand something further. It also defines the Greek equivalent of same principle - and/or therefore the ''number'' it relates to? Proving the viability of subject material regardless of ones {first?} impressions of it.

Question 2. What would the principle of UNconsciousness be represented by?

And/or, i.e.,analogy of same principle - but from a different 'angle' [key] ..."Spiritual teacher = 'The Guru Gita': verse 17 aptly describes the guru as ''dispeller of darkness'' [from gu, ''darkness,'' and ru, ''that which dispels'']." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'].

Analogy of same with all the above [keys ? principles?] in mind..."The method of the initiatory system is both synthetic and analytic, in constant application. It brings ideas and experiences together and it breaks them apart, repeating and recycling...In the Tarot, the Hierophant and the Hanged Man are the most appropriate cards for depicting the method; the former, a revealer of the sacred mysteries, and the latter, the sacrifice that must be made in order to receive those mysteries. One is the teacher, who must interface with the divine and maintain position as a bridge; the other is the candidate or initiate, whose world must be 'turned upside down'. " [Extract from the book 'The Magister' by M. Katz ].

The study of the subject gives the same result, i.e.,the student becomes his own [inner?] 'teacher' by understanding those universal concepts [''repeating and recycling'', i.e.,revision] in order to define something. In order to understand the parts within the whole. The ''micro within the macro''. The self within the bigger picture. Possibilities of. Nothing more.

''The whole gamut of human experience {and/or emotions}''. Question. What animal represents that final word? ...Why?

images7INTRK2WA ''synchronistic'' example of same [if only for this reader, and/or 'UNmanifested'?] could be the ''primordial scream'' omitted, in the upside down position, that allowed Mr M. Oldfield; of 'Tubular Bells' fame; to experience - in his own words - ''a rebirth''. Which became the beginnings of his own recovery. From darkness to light. From a negative to a positive. That internal struggle. Represented by the film that those ''Bells'' became associated with - 'The Exorcist'. [ 'Tabular Bells: The Mike Oldfield Story'. BBC Four]. Strangely enough those 'Bells' that form a figure 4, as well as the 'heart'.

"The voice of truth in a person that has not yet awakened to spiritual life, is the ''still small voice'' that may be felt in the heart, listened to by the imperfect; as a half conscious dreamer may listen to the ringing of bells in the distance; but in those that have become conscious of life, that have passed through the first 'resurrection' of the spirit in their own heart, and received the baptism of the first initiation, administered by themselves, the voice of the new born 'ego' has no uncertain sound, but becomes the powerful Word of the 'Master'. [Emphasis this readers. Chapter 1, from the book by F. Hartman]. Link to the word ''teacher''.

A working example {that very first one?}:"The principle of the city came to me as an expression of a cosmic pattern, rather after the fashion of Dion Fortune's the 'Cosmic Doctrine'. First a crossways of two elements, a road and a river, causing a center that is then ring fenced by a city wall or Ring-Pass-Not and then the pointing upward to the heavens of all the spires and towers of the little parish churches, of which there were very many in London. Along with this came the significance of towers and bells, and the esoteric powers of sound - which can be of considerable practical interest in the technicalities of bell manufacture. The dimensions of which affect the type of sound that goes out - and also the principle of change ringing - in which a mathematical combination is pursued throughout its entire course of possibilities. This is a phenomenon unique to Britain, as on the continent the practice is for carillons of bells that play tunes. All this seemed to have some connection with the mathematical researches and angelic tablets of Dr John Dee. In pursuit of this, i found myself much concerned with St Mary Le Bow, and other churches constructed by Wren after the great fire of London. As part of the conference i was able to lay on a guided tour to a selection of his churches around St Paul's cathedral - St Martin's on Ludgate Hill, St Sepulchre opposite the Old Bailey, St Vedast's Foster Lane, St Mary Le Bow, St Mary Aldermary, St Nicholas Cole Abbey, St Benet Paul's Wharf, St Andrew by the Wardrobe, St Brides Fleet Street, in a clockwise circumambulation that ended in St Paul's cathedral itself at a power point marked by a brass grating directly under the midpoint of the dome and over the crypt. There was some talk of Sir Christopher Wren being associated with a secret society of his time called the Fedeli..."  ['I Called it Magic' by G. Knight].

Question. 'Higher' of the Greater Mysteries? And/or ''Ring fenced by a city wall'' - recall the wall {white?} around that very first pyramid. Representation of same concept?

"Everyone has an internal thought process: that silent other self who speaks to you; the one you debate with." [First sentence; first paragraph; first page of the book by Q. S. Lam ].

"The intuition alone of divine 'love', with its effect on moral consciousness is - they teach - the sole experience to which one should aspire."

Due to a connectedness of something?

Hence..."The joy of good conscious is the accord between the moral rhythms of the 'lower' and 'higher' self. The beatitude [Matthew v,8] promising those who have a pure heart that they will 'see' god - signifies the accordance of their basic rhythm with the 'divine' rhythm. Joy is therefore the state of harmony of the inner/outer rhythms - of rhythm below with that of above..." [Extract from the book by Tomberg. Emphasis, this readers].

Simply put -positive over negative? IN RELATION TO...’'A symbol is an energy-evoking and direct agent’'. Think about it. In relation to those positives/ negatives within a ‘river’. [ J.Campbell. ’Flight of the Wild Gander’. Chapter five. Part seven]. That link to the word ''archetype.'' Question. Autopilot?

Astronomy equivalent and or a {work?} in its early {reflective?} phase - {the very first one?}: "Homer draws attention to the physical appearance of the Moon in the guise of Hera when on several occasions he associates it with human feelings and a popular , even child - like, image of its face. When all of Hera's schemes are going well in the closing lines of Book 1 she is said to have a 'smiling face', but then thwarted in Book 8 she shakes with rage. Confronted with Zeus anger in Book 15, she is forced to control her feelings, and signs of both happiness and bad mood are combined. We believe Homer was recording an unusual astronomical phenomenon when he has Zeus sternly remind Hera, 'Do you not remember how once upon a time i had you hanged? I fastened two anvils on to your feet, and bound your hands in a chain of gold which none might break, and you hung in mid air among the clouds'. These lines suggest a lunar phenomenon when four other 'moons' can be seen in the skies. Known as 'parselene' - 'mock moons' or 'moon dogs', these are small diffuse images that can be seen at 22 degrees on either side and north and south of the moon. They are caused by the refraction of light by ice crystals in the atmosphere, and, although it is possible to see several moons, it is most common to see only one or two at a time, like the anvils tied to Hera's feet. Hera is also associated with such events as conjunctions..." ['Homer Secret Iliad'].  Try ''anvil'' to see something from a different perspective {refraction?}.

Follow the title of the book to 'see' that unknown {quantity OR quality?} become a known one. Throughout ALL cultures. From darkness {'moon/silver'} to light {'sun/gold'}.

"The 'good life' is a process. The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination. The good life constitutes a direction selected by the total organism, when there is psychological freedom to move in ANY direction." [Taken from Part three, 'on matters of existence' from the book, 'Striking Thoughts' { Bruce Lee's Wisdom for Daily Living} by J. Little.

A working example: "There is only one tradition, and that is the evolution into enlightenment which creates people of compassion, maturity, wisdom, and self-transcendence. Every generation must discover the paths that lead to authentic transformation. It isn't about creating new tradition, but about being genuine in one's efforts to reach ones highest potential." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way']. Continued elsewhere - compare it - 'see' it - in relation to all other ''paths''.

Hence the final paragraph of the 'Work' : "The Work is not for the elite {i.e.,the word esoteric means inner not secret}, but for anyone who has a sincere desire to reach a connection with a deeper part of themselves that opens on to encounter with that which is greater than themselves. Emotional healing and purification, self transcendence, conscious effort, awakening from sleep are the birthright of all who ''hunger and thirst'' for Truth and right action in the world." [Same book].

"The 'chaste' mind [objectivity link, i.e.,single mindedness] seeks the truth and not [just] the joy of revelation of the truth, [the author {i.e.,Tomberg} defines that 'negative' as ''intoxication'' represented with the symbol or sign of a 'mirage'] - just as chaste love seeks union with 'the loved one' and not the carnal pleasure of union." [parenthesis, this readers].

"The stream of knowledge," Sir James Jeans writes in the 'Mysteries Universe' ''is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine." Twentieth century science is thus sounding like a page from the hoary Vedas. From science, then, if it must be so, let man learn the philosophic truth that there is no material universe; its warp and woof is 'maya' illusion. Under analysis all its mirages of reality dissolve." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi' ].

Question. Nothing more than an overplay [ pretensions?] of ''moralistic'' values? Affectation?

"The joy of good conscience is the accord between moral rhythms of the lower self and the higher self. The beatitude {Matthew 5, 8} promising those who have a pure heart that they will ''see god'' signifies the accordance of their basic rhythm with the divine rhythm." [i.e.,the understanding of A-C in relation to 'divine bit' and its relevance and/or use - to each individual, i.e.,what it means to them; what they apply it to, i.e.,as an example - a self interest or shared]. All four quotes [including the one below] taken from within the book by Tomberg]. Recall what ''see'' implies.

That final sentence [if understood correctly] defines the following..."The sources of joy are deeper than those of suffering. They still spring from the river which ''flowed out of Eden to water the garden. 'Joy' is more ancient than 'suffering', and the world of joy preceded the world of suffering." [i.e.,'source' - and therefore what it implies - relative to ''the fall'' - and what it implies]. Top down in relation to bottom up. The beginnings of which is represented within a u-turn. Along the way 'back' - a 'connection' is made. That union of the two - of two opposing 'paths' - but with one eternal aim [''crossover'' point and/or 'dark night of the soul' ]. Which finally becomes [in its physical form?] what is termed as the philosophers stone. Question. Fact or fiction; a possibility or not? At least the understanding of a subject is got.

Understanding the above; defines the following quote within the book by Tomberg..." Consequently the use of the word ''magic'' is quite justified, if at least one understands by magic the power of the invisible and 'spiritual' over the visible and material." i.e., Bottom - up; in relation to top - down. Question. Which is which?

"Error runs down an inclined plane, while truth has to laboriously climb its way up hill". Benefits of.

It also defines concave or convex relative to the earth [and/or 'observer' ] - when ALL is taken into account. Try ''polarities''.

"...the opening of the knowledge of the masculine and feminine potencies necessary unto the manifestation of all things." Potency in relation to polarity?

causewayConvex / concave in relation to the causeway between Stonehenge and the river Avon. Many speculate as to why it is in the form of a u-shape rather than as ''straight as the crow fly's''. Concave in relation to the crescent of the moon {i.e.,waxing} and/or ''bottom up''?

From the river Avon convex? From Stonehenge to the river concave? Representational of? i.e.,outer / inner and /or external / internal?

The word 'oracle' has the same intention. If only within this subject. Especially in relation to what [as an example] the word 'Apollo' represents. Find it to understand it. Rather than leave till later.

"The Agnisuryans respond to the sound. The waters ebb and flow. Let the 'magician' guard himself from drowning, at the point where land and water meet. The midway spot, which is neither dry nor wet, must provide the standing place whereon his feet are set. When water, land and air meet there is the place for 'magic' to be wrought." Anything?

"When i began drawing the mandalas - i saw that everything; all the paths i had been following; all the steps i had taken - were leading back to a single point - namely to the mid-point. It became increasingly plain to me that the mandala is the center. It is the exponent of all paths. It is the path to the center, to individuation...I knew that in finding the mandala as an expression of the self, i had attained what was for me, the ultimate. Perhaps someone else knows more, but not me." [C. G. Jung].

manAnalogy?: "The universe and everything within it constitutes 'god'. The universe is a gigantic human organism and man is a tiny image of it, a toy replica of god. Because he is a miniature of the universe, by a process of spiritual expansion a man can mystically extend his own being to cover the entire world and subject it to his will. It is because all things are aspects of the one thing that all things are grist to the magician's mill...He has reached the center, where man becomes god. The achievement of this is the Great Work..."  ['The Fourth Dimension'].

Center in relation to that universal framework and 'bit'. Anything?

Cleopatra will be found with Mark Anthony, [Pagan equivalent, i.e., indicative of helping someone to understand something]...outside the boundaries of Alexander. Indicative of that return journey to ‘C’. Outside the boundaries of A/B...but within striking distance, [ ’Sting in the tail’ link, i.e.,the tail end of something together with the beginning of something else, i.e., in relation to a 'development' of something. The micro within the macro]. Hence the reason why she will not be found within those boundaries whether sunken or otherwise.

Refresher:  "Achilles has a trio of fine horse...Two of the horses, Xanthus and Balius are 'immortal' and mark stars in the Milky Way. Pedasus is 'mortal' and, although said to be every bit as as good as the immortal pair, his star is just outside the Milky Way. The configuration of these makes the familiar triangle of one of Homer's chariots." [Same book].

Genghis Khan. Representative of that subject that some say is the origin of all the mystery clubs. Its most ancient. Shamanism. That one word that is never used; throughout; in the book 'The Sirius Mystery' but implied [knowingly or otherwise] by the words..."male initiates" in relation to the Dogon tribe, [chapter two]. The star system 'Sirius' being ''The 'source' of all their 'information'', [authors opinion]. Or the quote used by the same tribe 'the shaper of the world' and that link to "shape-shifters" of which 'shamanism' is renowned. That same link to the 'female' equivalent, i.e.,anima,['unknown']...being the Greek 'goddess' Circe, who 'changed' her 'enemies',[negative aspects] into 'animals', i.e.,'lower' from the 'higher' i.e.,another word associated with the same, being the word 'falcon', as discovered in the same book, by the same author, [chapter five].

If the author had included within his 'hypothesis' alternative 'credible information' such as that which would be found within such publications as 'The Aquatic Ape Hypothesis' by E. Morgan and/or 'The Hidden Messages in Water' by Masaru Emoto, then that 'personal' hypothesis may have stood 'the test of time'.

The final link however, as to the most likely possible 'source' of their 'information', when 'weighing' up all the available evidence [circumstantial or otherwise, including the meaning of such obvious, in your face; evidence, such as the meaning of 'Circe']... will be found; at least for this reader; within Mr Naydler's book 'Shamanic Wisdom of the Pyramid Texts'. Or further information on the Dogon tribe in order to evaluate correctly can be found on page twelve onwards within the book 'The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life', [Vol. one]. Using his understanding of 'fish' symbolism to entice the reader to a deeper understanding...especially that 'inner' [symbolic] meaning of the 'dolphin', of which he constantly uses throughout; in one form or another; in the book. In the same vein as Plato and Gurdjieff, but now in 'story telling' form, i.e.,"because it is one of the best methods i know to give and receive information", [chapter 10, same book, vol 2].

The concepts of 'iron' and 'blacksmiths' very important. As indicated in chapter eight of 'Hamlets mill'. The ‘forging’ of something. The blacksmith being the older brother of the shaman. Think about it in relation to the 'younger'. Ptah / Imhotep being the Egyptian equivalent..."responsible for the final stages of the 'divine' creative outpouring of form into the physical world" {'son of' link?}....."who channeled the spiritual into material embodiment", Hence the link to his ''cap''. Representational of same. Found elsewhere. [chapter seven. 'The future of the Ancient World'/ J.Naydler]. Think about it, in relation to the Hebrew word 'Shekhinah', relative to the Egyptian 'Ka'.

"...Then, in the Memphite myth, when the divine blacksmith Ptah {the Greek Hephaistos} actualized the 'creation' of the world by means of the Desire of his heart and the Word of his speech.'' [Extract from the book by L. Lamy]. Try ''logos''. Egyptian equivalent.

To vulcanize something by ‘fire’.[key. Mentioned elsewhere]. That same ‘substance’ that the trickster character ‘stole’. Think about it...especially in relation to one of its other 'forms'...the Hare and/or fox, i.e., in relation to the many different ways,[forms] of understanding something...in imagesWEFIE99Ugetting an understanding across....in an attempt to define something, for an understanding to take place, i.e., 'to be' made aware.

"Serious mysteries may be describable only in terms of paradox, or in what passes for jest."

"If god ever calls me to a holy war - i want Joe Frazier beside me." Muhammad Ali.

A {working?} example: "Gurdjieff's silence regarding his sources gives birth to a suspicion that he is silent for a reason, because he follows a purely personal goal. This is the very opposite to the accomplishment of a mission. Why would one who fulfills a mission hide his sources? It is perhaps here that is found the meaning of the phrase ''Maybe i stole it...". It could be interpreted as the admission that he was not asked to diffuse this teaching, neither in the East nor in the West. It was a personal initiative on his part, to satisfy a personal interest." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way']. Continued elsewhere. Try ''method'' to see 'it' from different perspectives.

Refresher {Part 2}: "The fourth way is sometimes is called the 'way of the sly man'. The 'sly man' knows some secret which the fakir, monk and yogi do not know. How the 'sly man' learned this secret is not known. Maybe he found it in some old books, perhaps he inherited it, perhaps he bought it, or stole it from someone. It makes no difference. The 'sly man' knows the secret and with its help outstrips the fakir, the monk and yogi." ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

The Dogon tribe do the same in relation to their own stories that contain that very same framework...by way of the 'Pale Fox', i.e.,"The fourth Nommo [Nommo being the "collective name for the 'great culture hero' and founder of civilisation". Chapter two, i.e.,trickster character. See P. Radin book for verification]... is the 'naughty' disrupter named Ogo or Nommo Anagonno. As he was about to be finished [being created] he rebelled against his creator and introduced disorder into the universe. Eventually he will become the 'Pale fox'. Which is the image of his fall". [Chapter nine].

The 'leaping' fox as seen on the pillar{s?} at Gobekli-tepe? [Chapter two 'Gobekli Tepe' by A. Collins].

Think about it, in relation to the primary aim/purpose of the 'trickster character'. Any trickster character, of which Hermes and Thoth and therefore by the same implication 'Solomon' are identified with. The result of which, becoming those inspirations/aspirations that could lead to a possible understanding...from a 'fallen' state, [benefit of].

'Hermes The Thief' {the evolution of a myth} by Norman Oliver Brown'.

Example of same, as shown throughout by Mr R.Temple of the 'Sirius Mystery' fame. Using his knowledge of the Dogon story, to entice the reader to understand that deeper/inner meaning, within the overall subject. This one. His main interest being the geodetic aspect. Latitude and longitude within all landscapes. Showing all those connections between north and south. East and West. In the same 'vein', and with the same intent as Gurdjieff and Plato do... With the reader in mind. Even though he is off the mark; if only for this reader; with his final 'hypothesis'. [Also verified by the author of the 'Cygnus Mystery', page 284].

Latitude/longitude = 'lozenge' ?

As seen from a different perspective: "There was also Tros, the son of Alastor - he came up to Achilles and 'clasped his knees' in the hope that he would spare him and not 'kill' him but let him 'go', because they were 'both' of the same 'age'. The implication behind this last remark is that the personal star of Tros {Cetii} is close to the same altitude in the sky as Sirius, and would have appeared on the horizon visible from Greece at about the time Sirius appeared in the sky." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Therefore a link in some form {to a representation of something} - by way of - an helical rising?

Male skeleton found - 'Lord of Stonehenge' - Bronze Axe {near left shoulder} / gold plate on chest {lozenge} and coral shafted mace found within..."In some ways the mystery of Stonehenge will not be solved, but every theory gets us that little bit closer..." Quote by Prof. Mike Parker Pearson within the program 'Stonehenge: A Time-watch Guide' / BBC4. UNDERSTAND THIS SUBJECT - TO GET THAT ''LITTLE BIT CLOSER.'' N.B. Djoser's 'Step Pyramid also overlooking {beginning?} from the south. Question. What was found within it?

"The design of the artifact known as the Bush Barrow Lozenge, and the smaller lozenge , has been shown to be based on a hexagon construction. Both the shape and the decorative panels appear to have been created by repeating hexagons within a series of three concentric circles." [Wiki / 'Bush Barrow']. Try among others ''hexagon'' and ''three''.

And/or: "We knew that the lozenge itself was an arcane symbol. The four bounding lines were symbolic of the four elements which according to arcane knowledge, frame the outer structure of the phenomenal world. The space they bound is the Etheric, or life force {'quintessence'}, hidden behind the elemental four. It is a 'space' invisible to ordinary vision...The lozenge is one of the basic symbols of esoteric lore, representing as it does as a sort of doorway into the etheric spiritual world...This symbol of the etheric plane is nowhere no more openly announced than in Notra-Dame, France...A figure is displayed within a huge lozenge, the bounds of which are decorated with small lozenges. Altogether there are 41 lozenges in this single architectural detail..." ['The Zelator'].

Someone closer to the mark; for this reader; using the same knowledge of latitude and longitude within this subjects symbolism will be found with the author Stecchini, as explained within the book 'Secrets of the Great Pyramid' by P. Tompkins.

Analogy? "In practical terms, any journey must take place through some kind of landscape. So the next stage of our practical work with 'magical' images is to use them in a linear way that will take us through an initiatory journey or story. Such journeys are common in all myth and legend..." ['Magical Images and the Magical Imagination' / G. Knight].

The word / name ‘Fulcanelli’ ['ten' letters ], some say is a play on the words Vulcan / Falcon, together with ‘elli’. A beginning / end. Work it out. All symbolic of a ‘beginners’ journey {linear?}. All within one word. Like the words...Blacksmith / Hammer and Anvil. All symbolic within the blacksmiths ‘Apron’. [use the 'find' indicator]. The author of the Zelator suggests something different,

Side note: ''Apron'' in the guise {veil?} of something else? Try ''veil''.

Egyptian equivalent... short 'kilt' worn in the 'sed jubilee' as indicated in 'Shamanic Wisdom in the Pyramid Texts. Mentioned elsewhere. More often than not, made of 'leopard' skin. Use the 'find' tool , to understand why, before asking that bigger question, i.e.,why, why go to all this effort. Ritual? Nothing more?

Vulcan: the patron saint of alchemy, who introduced the same to mankind. Falcon: ''The Lord of the skys.'' Eli: meaning ''Ascent'' or ''Yahweh is the most high god." The author of the Zelator offers a different interpretation by way of the Hebrew word ''Ishon'' and this subjects main representation of the symbolic intent of the ''apple.'' The end result, however, regardless of which interpretation one agrees with; is the same. An understanding of something. That inner one. The micro within the macro.

"The Hebrew 'Ishon' means 'dwarf', but in the authorized version of the bible it is translated as 'apple of the eye'. The association is almost certainly linked with the hermetic 'kore' [see part one]. In The Lamentations of Jeremiah [ii, 18], the translation offered is 'let not the apple of thine eye cease', suggesting that the apple of the eye is weeping. However, it could, with a much deeper meaning, be translated, ''let not the small man within cease.'' [Bibliographic notes to the final chapter].

Analogy of same. Kore = "The virgin of the eye is a reference to the Greek Kore, which besides meaning the 'pupil of the eye' also means 'maiden' or 'virgin'. Just so, the English 'pupil' can also mean 'someone who is learning'.

The beginning {''virgin''} of something?

'The Eye of Heart' by Frithjof Schuon.

"But again, the movement runs both ways - for what one surrenders is, mystery, the same as what one gains. The eye which Odin offered to Mimir was a pledge given in exchange for water from the well; but the well itself is also called ''the pledge of Odin.'' Similarly, the Celtic languages can use the same word to mean ''spring'' or ''pool'' and ''eye.'' Thus the famous hot springs at Bath [Aquae Sulis] in Somerset were in Roman times named ''the waters of the eye'': like the Boyne they were sacred to a Goddess, in this case one identified with the Roman Goddess of wisdom, Minerva."[Taken from the chapter, 'The Waters of Vision and the Gods of Skill.' Mentioned elsewhere]. Put ''Minerva'' in the box. Then try ''Boyne.''

'Sulis' a link to the Irish suil, meaning ''eye.''

"Dion Fortune's concerns with the Arthurian legend begins and ends at Glastonbury. Here she settled in 1922 at the foot of the Tor, at Chalice Orchard. She celebrated her love of Glastonbury and its legends, in a book called 'Avalon of the Heart,' which she first wrote about in her 'Inner Light' magazine......

path"There are many different 'roads' leading to our English Jerusalem, ''the holyest erthe in England.'' We can approach it by the high road of history, which leads through a rich country......Its influence twines like a golden thread through the story of our Islands. OR we can come to Glastonbury by the upland path of legend. In and out twine the ancient folk stories, full of deep spiritual significance to those whose hearts are turned to their key. AND there is a third way to 'Glastonbury,' one of the secret Green roads of the soul [ or Green Language] - the 'mystic' way that leads through the hidden door [or 'chambers'] into the land known only to the 'eye of vision.' This is 'Avalon of the heart......' [Introduction to the book 'The Arthurian Formula' by D. Fortune and others]. Can you by now see why [as in this example] the author uses such phrases as 'Chalice Orchard' or 'Avalon of the heart.' Can you 'see' that inner meaning?

"Analogy of same; but more KEYS to {contemplate?}..."I saw a building jutting out like a great white ocean liner toward the blue brine, {'horizon' link}. First, speechlessly, then with ''Oh's!'' and ''Ah's!", finally with man's insufficient vocabulary {'gnosis' link, i.e.,what it implies} of joy and gratitude, i examined the Ashram: sixteen unusually large rooms, each one charmingly appointed. The stately central hall, with high ceiling windows, looks out on an altar of grass, ocean and sky: a symphony in emerald, opal and sapphire. A mantel over the huge fire-place of the hall holds pictures of Christ, Babaji, Lahiri Mahasaya and Sri Yukteswar; bestowing, i feel, their blessing on this tranquil Western ashram. Directly below the hall, built into the very bluff, two meditation caves confront the infinities of sky and sea. On the grounds are sunbathing nooks, flagstone paths leading to quiet harbours, rose gardens, a eucalyptus grove, and a fruit orchard..." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'. All emphasis - this readers].

West in relation to 'altar'. Grass in relation to emerald and/or Ocean/opal - Sky/sapphire - All of which i.e.,represented within 'gardens and groves' = the ''fruit of ones labours.'' Look up ''16.'' to understand ''its'' implication.

"...but if you are armed with the 'wand' of intuition, the 'cup' of sympathy, the 'sword' of reason and the 'pentacle' of valor, you will find there {the legends say} the Medicine of Metals, the Elixir of Life, the Philosophers Stone, True Wisdom and perfect happiness." [Extract from the book 'The Cosmic Trigger' by R. Wilson. Emphasis, this readers].

''Medicine of Metals'' = 'Metal of the mind'? If so, what represents it And why?

The real questions however remain the same. WHY GO TO ALL THIS EFFORT?

'The Apples of the Hesperides'. This penultimate labour takes Heracles so close to the center of things that it is sometimes cited as the last labour. However, this is esoterically incorrect, for the final labour must be the harrowing of hell and the overcoming of the powers of Death. To approach the garden in the far West where the Tree of Life grows in the form of an apple tree bearing golden fruit is, however, a similar feat of overcoming natural inner boundaries, the one symbolized in the Old Testament by the angel who prevents mankind returning to the Garden of Eden, the earthly paradise." [Extract from the book 'The Rose Cross and the Goddess: The Quest for the Feminine Eternal Principle' from the chapter entitled 'The Heroic Quest for the Hesperides' by G. Knight].

'The apple of the eye'.

REFRESHER...'Sulis' a link to the Irish suil, meaning ''eye.''

Analogy of same; but now by applying what ''eye'' represents - IN RELATION - to that 'gap'..."When i began drawing the mandalas - i saw that everything; all the paths i had been following; all the steps i had taken - were leading back to a single point - namely to the mid-point. It became increasingly plain to me that the mandala is the center. It is the exponent of all paths. It is the path to the center, to individuation...I knew that in finding the mandala as an expression of the self, i had attained what was for me, the ultimate. Perhaps someone else knows more, but not me." [C. G. Jung].

Try ''hero'' to see if you personally agree or disagree. On all pages.

'The Well of Memory'... "I am parched with thirst - 'dying.' Drink from me, the eternal spring, on the right by the cypress. Who are you? Where are you from? I am a 'child' of earth and starry heaven, but my race is of heaven." [Same book]. Put ''memory'' in the box. Question. What is the difference between 'starry heaven' and 'heaven' ? Clue....

"I want to know , sir - when shall i see god?"

"You have found him."

"Oh no, sir, I don't think so!" My Guru was smiling. ''I am sure you aren't expecting a venerable Personage, adorning a throne in some antiseptic corner of the cosmos! I see, however, that you are imagining, that possession of miraculous powers is proof that one has found god. No. One might gain power to control the whole universe - yet find the Lord elusive still. Spiritual advancement is not to be measured by ones displays of outward powers, but solely by the depth of his bliss in mediation. 'Ever new joy, is god. He is inexhaustible'...The starry inscription at one's birth, i came to understand, is not that man is a puppet of his past. Its messages is rather a prod to pride; the very heavens seek to arouse man's determination to be free from every limitation. God created each man as a soul, dowered with individuality, hence essential to the universal structure, whether in the temporary role of pillar or parasite. His freedom is final and immediate, if he so wills; it depends not on outer but inner victories." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'].

''Divine bit'' [awareness of], in relation to ''framework'' relative to cause and effect = freedom of something? i.e., awareness [over a period of time?] = a connection? Link to the word ''grace''.

Analogy of same..."I will present the psychological aspect of the tradition, particular Jungian thinking, and show how it relates to alchemy and, perhaps more importantly initiation - the later a relationship that has not been touched upon by other authors..." [Extract from the book 'The Magister' ].

This web page has ''touched'' on the above - throughout.

Question. Sense / nonsense. A possibility or not?

A working example?..."To be aware of higher reality while dealing with ordinary reality requires an effort of awareness, detachment, concentration and insight which are the result of long patience. These experiences of vaster consciousness have been tasted by everyone in rare moments of our lives and are reminiscent of the wonder years of childhood. But despite the deep emotion or astonishing joy that accompanies them {eureka moments?}, they are always fleeting, ephemeral, and uncontrollable. The disciplines of the Work eventually make the practitioner receptive to longer, more frequent encounters with these regenerating and illuminating events." ['The Wisdom of the 4th Way']. Continued elsewhere.

Analogy with same intent in mind; with the same aim: "...In taking infinite pains to shroud with mystery His presence in the atoms of creation, the 'creator' could have had but one motive, one sensitive desire: that man seek him only through free will..." As does...

"The 'good life' is a process. The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination. The good life constitutes a direction selected by the total organism, when there is psychological freedom to move in ANY direction."

An American / Mongolian student. The archetypal equivalent...that every student aspires to. Attributes of determination / fortitude / discipline / purpose...all forged together within that most important one. The well grounded one, [as well as the obvious intelligence]. Sets off to find the lost tomb of Genghis Khan. Galvanized by the tales told by one of his relations. That their ancestors "had come from the north", [ ‘Lost tomb of Genghis Khan’. National geographic channel. Can also be seen on ‘You tube’ ].

A ‘temple’ structure of some description was finally located within a certain ‘mountain’. just as Khufu-s sarcophagus was found within the kings chamber within that well known similar structure...but no body was found. Or will be found. To find that location, understand this subject.

Side note: That structure {i.e.,Kings chamber and/or 'room'?} that seems to be constructed differently from the norm as described in such works as 'Pyramid of Secrets' - in relation to: "A few days later our master left us. He died in his room below the loft, its floor newly sprung on wire cable supports. Almost immediately, we had an insight into that curious image of Vivien and Merlin that had been conjured by the doors. Our wizard master had been in the well - in the room beneath the loft - and was already on the point of death. What strange previsions are called forth from a Fool on the path. Is the sting of 'death' {uraeus link} meant for those who die, or for those who remain behind? This was the question we would ask ourselves...Perhaps the 'poison' in the sting is that so much remains behind, reminding one of what has been lost. Many of his words still echoed in our mind, and his example still guided our footsteps - at least as an ideal if not as an actual practiced reality...He seemed to live in our 'heart', and even in our head, in that incessant chatter which, we learn in the Schools, is the excrement of thought...Venus is called the planet of 'love' by those who do not know about the Mysteries', he had said..." Continued elsewhere. ['The Zelator'. All emphasis, this readers].

Refresher: "Everyone has an internal thought process: that silent other self who speaks to you; the one you debate with."

Question. 'Kings chamber'. Top/down or bottom/up as a means...?

Refresher: "Whether our master had in mind an intentional symbolism in this request to clear out the upper room, we shall never know. We had realized some considerable time ago that the main impediment to our spiritual development lay in our untrained thinking, as much as the accumulation of debris in our minds..." [same book]. Try ''Herod'' to see something from the alternative point of view.

J[b]...The true identity of Fulcanelli.

J[c]....The connection between the 'Tetragrammaton', [YHVH ], of Kabbalah fame. Part explanation of which can be found in such books as ‘Garden of Pomegranates’. By Israel Regardie, [or even Wikipedia, i.e.,'to be'...'to exist'... by way of an 'understanding'...that inner one]... and the Hebrew settlement on Elephantine Island / Egypt. Why was it that those Hebrews only used the first three letters [YHV.]...purposely?, [i.e., in correspondence. ‘The Elephantine papyri in English over 3000 years'. By B. Porten ].

elephant

'Hand' of the elephant. Think about it relative to ''Hand of the Lion." And/or claw {hand?} of the eagle? And/or Claw of Scorpius. And/or Hooves of the deer?

Why did they omit that final letter. What did they know? i.e., once understood it explains why it was the only 'Temple' to be 'officially acknowledged' outside of Jerusalem. That relationship with ISAIAH 19:19. It also ties in and 'connects' the three major re-ligions, to the ''pagan'' one i.e.,ancient Egyptian, [ i.e.,this subject, especially in relation to 'King-ship',of which some believe our modern concepts of ''morality'' originated from] - Islam, Hebrew , and Christianity. The clue lies in the letter ‘H’. Notice that there are two. It represents or is symbolic of a window / gateway / doorway..etc. Not literal, i.e., no ‘Astral porthole’. Symbolic only, i.e., Gateway to the heart. Window to the soul etc. Indicative of that development. In relation to a ‘journey’. REPRESENTATION OF.

'Elephant in the Dark' ? By ?

Side note: Question. Many wonder why no artifacts have 'surfaced' over the years {centuries?} in regards to grave goods of many Pharaohs - especially those that represent the Giza complex {Rostau?}. Main answer given = tomb robbers. Purely as a hypothetical exercise; if such grave sites had been plundered what would have been done with the artifacts - i.e.,melted down / private collections / some most likely kept? - surely by now over the {centuries?} something should have come to light {other than one small figurine of Khufu - for the hardnutz enthusiast i.e.,but as they know - or should know - that small figure is not 'grave goods'}.

continued....At least {according to the Law of Averages?}  one or two items should have surfaced, i.e.,could everything have been melted down? The obvious answer is NO - not everything. The Statute of Limitations surely rules out the other two. Someone by now would have least TRIED - as the fraudsters have already PROVEN {i.e.,they could sense that 'weakness' in the market - due to that time period - that then allowed them to TRY}. As for the third option - maybe nothing has come to 'light' SIMPLY because they are all still buried?

Question 2. When ALL THE AVAILABLE information is assessed. What does that Kingly Principle that goes by the nickname of Occam's Razor say?

"How the elephant got into my pajamas I'll never know." [Marx - Animal crackers].

Analogy?...Neanderthal skeletons found in cave in Mercia - S/E Spain - First known burial - with the 'paw of a panther'. {Eden/satellite program. 'Decoding Neanderthal'}.

Analogy? { in the modern sense of the word}: "I very nearly paid the ultimate price when PTSD took over as i desperately clawed my way out of that dark place. I was extremely lucky to get the help i needed to recover, focused on getting my body fit and allowing my mind to regain its strength. As i move into a new chapter of my life, blindfolded as to what the normal world has to offer, i will take the same relentless drive into anything and everything i do, to show my family that anything is possible...." [Final page 'Soldier Spy' / T. Marcus].

Mayan equivalent = the claws of a jaguar?

Analogy {now in the ancient sense of the 'word'}: "The further back we go in our search for the origins and meaning of the Moon Goddess {i.e.,the author defines that as the 'archetypal foundation of feminine psychology {principle?} - AND/OR  'the inner development of the emotional realm' / S/E?} - the nearer do we come to the 'animal' concept. Hecate {mentioned elsewhere} was once known, in the dim past, as the three headed hound of the moon. Artemis was a bear; Isis was Hathor the Cow goddess. Cybele was once a lioness or a lion headed goddess...In later centuries of the Egyptian worship of Osiris {therefore Isis related} - it was said that Apis, the bull, was the spirit of Osiris {hint, hint - see it?}. This saying gives a direct clue to the EVOLUTION of the religious thought...The animal attendants and animal emblems surrounding the goddess in her shrines must have constantly reminded the worshippers of later days, of those 'wilder' aspects of her nature from which she had partly evolved...They were still kept near to her, for she could not be comprehended except in the light of her past...The Bear {as one example}, indeed, represents the fierce and terrible aspect of the 'goddess' {i.e.,anima/animus?} herself, which not only creates but destroys life. Later the two aspects of the goddess became partially differentiated and separated,  so that in the famous sculpture {as one example} of 'The Mourning Aphrodite of Lebanon', the animal in this case a boar instead of a bear, is killing the 'youthful' Adonis, while Aphrodite laments in deepest grief. Yet the boar, is also Aphrodite herself...The psychological meaning of this gradual change in 'form' is clear. In extremely early days, before civilization had progressed far, feminine instinct was perceived as entirely animal. Then the fierceness of the mothers care for her young and the voracity of her lust for the male in the mating season were the most obvious and dominant characteristics of beast and woman alike...The frequent occurrence of crimes of passion bears witness to the panther like qualities which feminine instinct may develop when frustrated...    As civilizations progressed, however, women began developing something nearer akin to the emotion which we call love {'Eros'}, and the goddess of women rose gradually above her animal nature...This rapacious aspect of the moon goddess is represented by the lion or panther; her maternal and nurturing aspect by the cow, whose horns suggest the 'horned moon'..." ['Women's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern'].  Try ''deer'' for a connection in ALL cultures.

Question. Matriarch / Patriarch?

Question 2. Those images {archetypes?} that form that ''foundation'' . Which comes first - images that define the psyche or vise versa?

'The Station of the Sun' / R. Hutton.

"And so we turn again to the ancient differentiation of male and female, arising from the depths of the unconscious in the form of symbols whose eternal reality is still exemplified to us in our everyday experience of the Great Light which rules the day of reason and intellect, and the Lesser Light which rules the night of instinct and the shadowy perceptions of the inner intuitive world...The feminine principle or Eros is represented with the moon and the masculine principle or Logos is represented by the sun." ['Women's Mysteries'].

Side note: What do 'hands' {of any description} represent - if only in the context of this subject material?

"A long standing puzzle in the Iliad has been why Homer sometimes refers to horses as being 'single hooved' or 'single footed'. An ingenious literary explanation has proposed that horses are 'single footed' in that they do not have cloven hoofs. A more likely explanation is to be found in the skies, with the ancient Greek observers comparing the movement of the stars across the heavens with horses galloping across the field of 'battle' - single hooved horses indicating single stars...Nor is the comparison of horses with stars confined to the Iliad: in parts of more northern Europe , stars were believed to be 'steeds' tethered to the pole star." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

''Single'' in relation to: "The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be 'single', thy whole body shall be filled with light", [Matthew 6:22].

''Body'' in relation to: " In the old symbol of the chariot, the horses of the senses are to be held back [ nigrihita] by the reins of the mind, but it is not intended that they be unyoked from the chariot or that their movement should be stopped altogether..." Enlarged elsewhere.

''...tethered to the pole star'' = 'Straining {stretching?} at the reins'' to fulfill a purpose AND/OR 'pulling in the reins' when needed to fulfill it? Therefore ''single footed'' = 'Step by step' AND/OR  'Slow but steady' ? i.e.,the 'Royal Way'?

Top/down - bottom/up?

"Neophyte grade {MThIHD} ; meaning 'converted'. The root of the word 'converted', other than its obvious usage in religious terminology, is 'to turn around'. It signifies a turning around of attention to that which is not apparent. It is when the person in Plato's cave first wonders about the shadows on the wall and turns around to see from where they are being cast. This begins a new phase in their life, hence 'Neophyte', one 'new' to that direction...The word MThChIL is also similar to MThIChH meaning 'stretched', 'extended'. The conversion or transformation that goes on at Neophyte is one where the person is stretched...Interesting by gematria, the word has the value of 488 , the same value as PhThCh, meaning 'gate, 'entrance' 'insight'. " [Extract from the book 'The Magister' ]. Try ''gate'' and/or ''door''.

'Flight of foot' ? Try ''deer'' {hooves of?} - for that ''inner'' take of things - BEFORE deciding one way or the other. Janus link?

Side step: "In Latin a pearl was 'unio' , because as Pliny writes, it is 'the unique gem', or because pearls are only found singly...Oysters open and shut like doors [folding doors in English were once called 'bivalves'], and the open shell of an oyster looks like the number 8."

"The Ferryman is familiar to us now, as Saint George, as Edward, and all their predecessors. Even Baring-Gould was bold enough to identify him with Charon, the classical Ferryman of souls. The sixth sphere [This author identifies that to the Hebrew tree of Life, i.e.,the heart] - is linked with the sun or Principle of harmony and beauty. In Celtic tradition the sun was said to be the sum of the blazing souls of ancestors in paradise. This is the realm of the saviour ['six' was the crucifix] and of the Archangel Michael, whose place in myth has already been touched upon. The ancient sacrificial king operated spiritually from this sixth sphere as a 'mediator' of the power of the mother goddess. Christ, the 'son of' god, should be positively identified here, with all the other "sons of light" through the ages, and by analogy with the sun of our solar system around which the planets revolve. Nowadays this concept could also be applied to the structure of the atom, and still hold good. The Sepher Yetzirah gives 'six' as - 'He sealed the Abyss, he turned downward and sealed it with YVH'. This YVH is part of the holy name of god, reputed to have 'magical' powers, but actually a scientific codification of metaphysics. The Abyss is that great unknown gap between 'heaven' and earth, the 'river' which the dead have to cross, spanned by the razor-edged bridge of fairy lore [or the eye of the needle parlance. This readers input] - or crossed by the 'vessel' of the Ferryman." [Taken from 'Where is Saint George' by R. Stewart]. Anything?

"But what is central about the story is not that it is factual but that it is true. In other words the story of Exodus is a story that embodies some of the deepest and profoundest truths of the human condition : What it is to be in the 'wilderness'. What it is to hope for the 'promised' land. What it is to escape 'slavery' - and to be both bewildered and exhilarated by the prospect of freedom. This is a story that's a 'sacred' story i.e.,inspired by 'god'. So the story of Exodus can be a story by which we read our lives even if there were not 600,000 that left Egypt - or even 5 - or even none." Rabbi David Wolpe. [Satellite TV. Emphasis, this readers].

Side note. ''Inspired'' in relation to Part 1. And/or what ''six'' represents. Anything?

shape"Six, the number of the material world and therefore of time and space, is the number chosen by the Egyptians to symbolize temporal and spacial phenomena...Volume requires six directions of extension to define it: up and down, backwards and forwards, left and right. So in Egypt, the cube, the perfect six sided figure, was used as the symbol for actualization in space; the cube is the symbol for volume. Pharaoh sits squarely upon his throne, which is a cube...Six is also symbolized by the Hexagon...In Egypt, Schwaller de Lubicz found that the dimensions of certain specific halls of the Temple of Luxor were determined by the geometric gereration of the Hexagon FROM the pentagon. This is a symbolic expression of the materialisation of matter from the spiritual creative act..." ['Serpent in the Sky: The High Wisdom of Ancient Egypt' / J. West].  Think about it relative to that universal ''bit''.

 

pentagramRefresher: The 56 Aubrey holes together with..."Eleven is the number of 'Magic' and the great work. It is the conjunction and equilibrium of the Pentagram {5} and Hexagram {6}. The name Hoor-Pa-Kraat has eleven letters {Greek = Harpocrates}. Eleven is also the number of letters in ABRAHADABRA, the Great Word of Magick, which represents the formula and accomplishment of the Great work...For it is the true law which unites the Micro with the Macro; the Pentagram and the Hexagram, or the Rose and Cross of Light and Life."

A side STEP: 'Mindfulness' by Mark Williams. ''Old wisdom for modern times.'' Quote on the same [BBC World Service. March 2015]. Today's new 'fad' on those ancient principles of Buddhism. Or more importantly what this subject has always referred to as 'meditation.' Its true intent. Both 'inner' and 'outer' Benefit of. The result of both however becomes the same - an understanding of the 'self'. The Micro within the Macro.

"You can't stop the triggering of unhappy memories, negative self talk and judgmental ways of thinking - but what you can stop is what happens next. You can stop the vicious cycle from feeding off itself and triggering the next spiral of negative thoughts. And you can do this by harnessing an alternative way of relating to yourself and the world. The mind can do so much more than simply analyse problems with its Doing mode, [the author defines that 'mode' with automatic / habitual thinking,i.e.,without taking 'time out' to reassess in the present moment]. The problem is that we use the Doing mode so much, we can't see that there is an alternative. Yet there is another way. If you stop and reflect for a moment, [i.e.,the ''present'' one. This readers input] - the mind just doesn't think. It can also be aware that it is thinking. This form of pure awareness allows you to experience the world directly. It's bigger than thinking. Its unclouded by your thoughts, feelings and emotions. It's like a high mountain - a vantage point - from which you can see everything from many miles around, [the author defines that state of thinking as ''Being'' mode. This subject defines it as ''Guardian of the Gate'']. Pure awareness transcends thinking. It allows you to step outside the chattering negative self-talk and your reactive impulses and emotions. It allows you to look at the world once again with open eyes. And when you do so, a sense of wonder and quiet contentment begins to reappear in your life." [Chapter 2, 'Mindfulness' by M. Williams and D. Penman]. Think about it - mountain/valley - higher/lower - subjective / objective - with an understanding in mind - both inner and outer - micro and macro - in relation to the full / whole 'journey'. For a further head scratch compare {i.e.,alternative 'viewpoint'} to the ''Arthur'' information in Part 1. Then try ''notch'' and ''angle'' - all pages.

'Still waters run deep,' i.e., and /or ''...quiet contentment'' ?

"Being. Being is. Being is in-itself. Being is what it is. Being includes both Being in-itself and Being-for-itself, but the later is the annihilation of the former. As contrasted with existence, Being is all-embracing and objective, rather than individual and subjective." [Taken from the chapter 'Relation and Reciprocity' from the book 'The Fine Structure Constant: Philosophical Explorations via A Poetics of Consciousness' by Keith Whittingslow].

"The aim of spiritual 'exercises' [and/or study. This readers input] is depth. It is necessary to become 'deep', to be able to attain experience and knowledge of profound things...

The 'unfinished' Obelisk found in the granite quarries in Aswan. At its most Northern end. A 'crack' along its length. If and when erected it would have been the 'tallest' ever.

A serpent by the way...that has no relevance or connection to Mr Ickes ‘Reptilian hypothesis’. Mr Icke is aware of this subject as proven by his internet site. Especially in relation to his ‘attempt’ of understanding the subject of Freemasonry. As does one of his recommended colleagues... P.Sabak. 'The Murder of Reality’. Full of esoteric symbolism but with no conclusions. Those same symbols/keys only 'suggested' in their most obvious sense...or more importantly in Mr Sabaks case ...in their most negative 'light'. The negative aspect is 'displayed' more so than the positive. Its then left ‘openended’. Its left to the imagination of the reader to decide for themselves. Of which those 'first impressions' become paramount.

Side note: ''in their most negative light''. Analogy of same principle = 'Lucifer', i.e.,bringing  light. And/or 'shadow' that has {within it?} the element {principle?} of 'light'.

This subject however.. ‘closes’ that openendedness. By way of assessing all the available information. All that ‘circumstantial evidence’, throughout multiple generations, over thousands of years. By way of objectivity. Both prefer to see / understand only what allows both to continue with their own ‘conspiracy theories’. [i.e.,subjective] Example of what happens if one continues along a blinkered / narrow path, [key]...subconsciously or otherwise. Link to " eye of the needle" parlence. As well as its obvious symbolic intention. Proof...If it is a conspiracy. Why allow anyone to understand anything. Why ‘advertise’ the fact in written or ‘club’ form. Why not keep it all to themselves? Loneliness?

"The best secret about the Masons; is that it was no secret at all". Abraham Lincoln.

A working example: "When a group is being organized its members have certain conditions put before them; in the first place, conditions general for all members, and secondly, individual conditions for individual members. General conditions at the beginning of the work are usually of the following kind. First of all it is explained to all of the members of a group, that they must keep secret everything that they hear or learn...This is an indispensable condition whose idea should be clear to them from the very beginning. In other words, it should be clear to them that in this there is no attempt whatever to make a secret of what is not essentially a secret, neither is there any deliberate intention to derive them of the right to exchange views with those near to them or with their friends. The idea of this restriction consists in the fact that they are unable to transmit correctly what is said in the groups. They very soon begin to learn from their own personal experience how much effort, how much time, and how much explaining is necessary in order to grasp what is said in groups. It becomes clear to them that they are unable to give their friends a right idea of what they have learned themselves. At the same time they also begin to understand that by giving their friends wrong ideas they shut them off from any possibility of approaching the work  at any time or of understanding anything in connection with the work...If a man in spite of this tries to transmit what he hears in groups to his friends he will very quickly be convinced that attempts in this direction give entirely unexpected and undesirable results. Either people begin to argue with him and without wanting to listen to him expect him to listen to their theories , or they misinterpret everything he tells them, attach an entirely different meaning to everything they hear from him."  ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

Analogy of same - "...the 'magic' of the constant work of service done in silence - this it is a matter of. A secret then? Not at all, for a private thing is not a secret thing. The private life is not a secret life. Silence as the essential condition for intimate work [or study. This readers input], is in no way equivalent to a jealously guarded secret. Just as Trappist monks maintain silence without anyone suspecting them of wanting to keep secrets, so is the community composed of Hermeticists [or any 'subject' that relates to the 'whole'. This readers input] - scattered in the world has the right to be silent, in order to maintain the atmosphere of privacy essential for its work, without it being suspected of dark secrets. Authentic spiritual life requires the inviolable sanctuary of privacy - which has nothing in common with ''initiation secrets" or those of ''secret societies", whose secrets, furthermore, inevitably become ''open secrets''. [Extract from the book by Tomberg].

A {working?} example: "Are there any conditions for joining your group?'' I asked. ''And is a man who joins it tied to it and to you? In other words i want to know if he is free to go and leave your work, or does he take definite obligations upon himself? And how do you act towards him if he does not carry out his obligations.''......''There are no conditions of any kind,'' said G., ''and there cannot be any. Our starting point is that man does not know himself, that he is not what he can and what he should be. For this reason he cannot make any agreements or assume any obligations...Today he is one person and tomorrow another...He is in no way bound to us and if he likes he can at any time leave the work and go...If he likes he can study. He will have to study for a long time, and work a great deal on himself. When he has learned enough, then it is a different matter. He will see for himself whether he likes our work or not. If he wishes he can work with us; if not he may go away. Up to that moment he is free...For instance take one point. A situation may arise, not, of course, in the beginning, but later on, when a man has to preserve secrecy, even if only for a time, about something he has learned. But can a man who does not know himself promise to keep a secret? Of course he can promise to do so, but can he keep his promise? For he is not one, there are many different people in him. One in him promises, and believes that he wants to keep the secret. But tomorrow another in him will tell it to his wife, or to a friend over a bottle of wine, or a clever man may question him in such a way that he himself will not notice that he is letting out everything. No with such a man we will not take seriously. To be able to keep a secret a man must know himself and he must 'be'. Such men are a very far from this. Sometimes we make temporary conditions with people as a test. Usually they are broken very soon but we never give any serious secret to a man we don't trust, so it does not matter much..." ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

silenceAnalogy; with same principle in mind..."The secrecy of which we speak is that of Hermeticism; a true seal on the vessel in which calcination - the slow fire - is taking place. Like a pressure cooker, our work must be regulated and not opened to the outer lest the pressure be entirely lost to the environment. In maintaining a secret, we easily and efficiently provide ourselves such pressure - an inner dynamic that maintains the work in which we are engaged. It leads to results, whereas openly speaking to all and sundry about our views, practices and values does not lead to anything useful at all. The ancient Egyptian god-form given for Neophyte in the Golden Dawn is that of Harpocrates, the child god of innocence, with his fingers to his lips - the universal sign of silence."

''External silence is sought in order to attain inner stillness of mind more easily." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way'].

AND/OR: In Egyptian mythology, Meretseger (also spelt Mertseger), meaning "she who loves silence" exerted great authority during the New Kingdom era over the Theban Necropolis and was considered to be both a dangerous and merciful goddess.[1] She was closely connected with al-Qurn, the pyramid-shaped peak in the Valley of the Kings.[2] As a cobra-goddess she is sometimes associated with Hathor.[3]

Continued..."As with all such information, only experience can enliven you and teach you in this work. We are each our own crucible and alchemical vessel, and our work must be hermetically sealed {with secrecy and silence} in order to accomplish any substantial progress. Our souls must have no leak at the seam." [Extracts from the book 'The Magister' : including parenthesis]. As improbable as it may seem {first impressions?} try ''leak''. Its representation.

Proving the viability of study - in ''whole'' that is - not just 'its' parts. It being at least on par [if only to this reader] with the ritual stuff. The word ''experience'' being used to identify same, i.e.,knowledge acquired within those ''mystery schools''. Being taught how to access those ''altered states'' [within] to define something {archetypes?}. Shamanism: the same. That something [i.e.,results of] that has been written about for countless generations. That has always been represented in one form or another with ''keys'' and ''signs''. That same word [''experience''] could also be used to define [by study] the word ''synchronicity'' - its meaning and purpose to the subject as a WHOLE, i.e.,to each individual - regardless of ones chosen ''path''. Regardless of how it may ''cross ones path''. The how and the why - Past present and future.

'The Rupture of Time : Synchronicity and Jung's Critique of Modern Western Culture' by Roderick Main.

"A more {practical?} analogy..."From Hermopolis, city of Hermes {Thoth}, master of Writing, Numbers, Measurement and Time, comes the description of the Nun, the primordial environment, picturing 'its' qualities and characteristics: 'He {the Demiurge} created the 'eight'. He formed its body as that of a sacred child who issues forth from a lotus in the middle of the Nun.' [Enlarged elsewhere].

Recall, who shared those ''boundaries'' of Hermopolis {i.e.,15th Nome}. Put those parts {keys} together to define the whole. Including the word ''demiurge''. All as a representation of something. That ''something'' that educates those first impressions.

A working example: "Our energy is limited and used up in many ways. We ''leak'' our energy through our functions: thoughts, feelings and sensations. This is all part of human nature, 'old Adam and Eve'. The 'sins of the soul' and the body can only be purified by the ''Lord'' sitting on his ''throne''. A Christian struggles to beat this 'legion' and to prepare the way for the 'spirit', the Lord. Gurdjieff expresses a similar struggle by saying that as we are, we have no real 'I', no Master, but a multitude of petty little I's. To be Master is the aim." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way']. Continued elsewhere.

Side note. ''I's'' in relation to 'aspects of'. Akhenaten link?

Question. For this subject to be accepted within the educational system [if ever] what would be the best method? i.e.,everything learned; regardless of intent/interest [or lack of both] becomes part of the individual - if only [within] the subconscious. Everything - sooner or later thereafter- emerges from it. The slow but sure way?

'Experience of No-Self and Path to No-Self' by Bernadette Roberts.

"When the value represented by the symbol has been entirely explored and made conscious its power leaves it, and the object which held the meaning of the symbol becomes only a natural object once more. But while its 'power' lasts the symbol is the representative of an unknown truth. It rises spontaneously from the depths of the unconscious and expresses or manifests the hidden fact in an image whose meaning can only be partly grasped by consciousness." [Chapter 6, 'Women's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Think about in relation to what the word 'incarnation' implies. Found within.

Question. Does not the above - in one form or another apply to ALL information? Regardless of subject? Those bit and pieces of 'information' [over a period of time] = a realisation. Foundations of?

"We must first consider the difference between the evaluation of a course of study and its assessment. The evaluation of a curriculum in the secular sense is the process by which the 'nature and desirability' of a course is given 'value or worth'; but to define the extent to which a course is 'workable and effective' requires a form - or forms - of assessment. These forms of assessment create the basis for the evaluation of the effectiveness of a course in meeting the intended aim specified by those who create the course, understood by those teaching it, and received by those learning." [Extract from the book 'The Magister'].

The ''READERS Way'' works just as well as any other 'way' - the results of which should bring about a positive assessment for the subject as a whole - as proven - if any of those ''proofs'' are verified. Yes or No?

Example of :{one example}: "...Because a modern man lives in 'sleep' {unknown/unaware link}, what knowledge therefore can a sleeping man have? And if you think about it and at the same time remember that sleep  is the chief feature  of our being, it will at once become clear to you that if a man really wants knowledge, he must first of all think about how to wake, that is, about how to change his being...Therefore a man who wants to awake must look for other people who also want to awake and work together with them. This, however, is easier said than done because to start such work and to organize it requires a 'knowledge' which an ordinary man cannot possess. The work must be organized and it must have a leader {teacher?}. Only then will it produce the results expected of it...It can be organized only by a man {or men/women} who know its problems and its aims, who know its methods; by a man {or woman} who has in his {her} time passed through such organized work him {her}self. A man usually begins his studies in a small group {class?}. This group is generally connected with a whole series of similar groups on different levels {curriculum?} which, taken together, constitute what may be called a 'preparatory school'..." ['In Search of the Miraculous'. Parenthesis, emphasis, this readers].

Question. Could one not apply the above description to a teaching method - of ANY subject - in say - a school curriculum - which ALL subjects prove, in one form or another. The beginning and finishing within a school education? Just one more subject.

And like all subjects some we like more than others. Some we take exams in. Some we don't. Most we remember. Some we don't - but even the ones we take a less {forgetful?} interest in - if only in those early years - we can still - if and when necessary - recall the basics - which is helpful if that latent interest is reignited - maybe in later years.

"But of what use is it to him if he does not remember?'' said one of us. "Essence remembers.'' said G. ''personality may forget..." Same book.

Recall what ''essence'' implies. Link to incarnation/reincarnation - in the present moment {i.e.,''fertilization'' link}. Try ''Wolfgang'' for a 'working' example.

And/or: "A word needs to be said about proof of authority. In the 'New Pearl of Great Price', said to be penned around 1330 by a certain Petrus Bonus of Ferrara and edited by a Franciscan friar {pseudonym}, the author states explicitly: ''We may prove the truth of our Art {1} By the testimony of the Sages {2} By the most forcible arguments {3} By analogy, and manifest examples.'' ...And although we would like to believe that our modern, sophisticated logic is immune to such persuasions, we know that's not true. Our entire educational system is based on proof by authority. Moreover, proof by authority carries its own proofs - it builds - one authority on another. So it was that the alchemists believed Bonus, and Bonus based his beliefs on 'Anaxagoras, Socrates, Plato, Geber, Rhasis, Homer and many others..." ['The Chemistry of Alchemy' / Cobb, Fetterolf and Goldwhite].

A working example: "We climbed back into our 'car', intending to drive back to Ferrara, where we wanted to examine once again the most impressive of the early Renaissance astrological fresco's in Italy...Because the lowest register of the fresco is within easy reach, it has suffered the most damage...This same triple arrangement was maintained in the area depicting September - properly the sign of Libra...The mythological register was of more immediate interest to us, however, for the god in the chariot is Vulcan, who introduced mankind to alchemy. His chariot is drawn by 'monkeys', and we find ourselves wondering if the artists would have known that this association went back to the hermetic literature of Thoth, as a monkey 'faced' god. To the right are the physical alchemists, beating iron - perhaps a reference to the name Ferrara, the place where 'iron' is worked. To the right of Vulcan's chariot {'car'?} are a pair of what appears to be sleepers...The couple are far from being asleep, however. They are 'lovers' creating a 'civilization' through their passion...The secret of this couple of lovers is shown on the other side of Vulcan's chariot. In the sky {which is to say, in the spiritual sense of the word} hovers a 'shield'. It looks like a doorway into space: on it is painted the she-wolf suckling the 'twins' Romulus and Remus - founders of Rome...['The Zelator' / M. Hedsel. Emphasis, this readers].

All as a means for the author to decode what he describes as the 'Nicholas code'...

The main point being {if only to this reader} that the study of a subject gives the same result - but most importantly - it gives the reader an idea as to the intent and the 'beliefs' of ALL who participate in the same subject - ALL the way back in time - since 'modern' man/woman {Neanderthal?} began to {think?}. In other words - whether we like {the subject?} or not it gives us an insight into what man/woman first began to {believe?} in. It gives us an insight into an aspect of their {beliefs?}. In other words it becomes therefore - does it not - an aspect of Anthropology. That 'aspect' of which we know little about. That aspect of which has not as yet even been taken into ACCOUNT.

"I'm a university professor. Cologne University. I work in mediaeval codes...Ferrara seems to have secret things in its very 'bones'...Richard Dayton spent many hours with us...His knowledge of mediaeval literature and arcane sigils was formidable...By far the best place to break down {car link} in Ferrara  {is close to the garage of} Faccetti. Faccetti is a magician in metal...We drove back to England as though the car had wings. During that drive we were able to shake off from our minds the obsession with the code of Sagrada di San Michele, and find a new point of inner balance...'' [Same book. Parenthesis, this readers].

Side note: 'Lost continent' in relation to a ''new civilization'' - together with ''that which was lost is now found'' i.e., ''Who was Nicolas'' we had asked in silence...''You were,'' said the voice. ''You were Nicholas...'' Some things told to us in that moment - what T. S. Eliot called a timeless moment - changed our life..." [Same book].

M....The possible relationship between science and that individual journey A-C. Especially in relation to the ‘Fine Structure Constant'. Represented by the number 137, [a number that is also significant with the Kabbalah]. That same number that amongst others Wolfgang Pauli spent many years trying to understand. That same number that he felt compelled to discuss; amongst other things; with the psychiatrist Jung. The same number that on the day he ‘died’ was found to be his own hospital room number. That relationship to ‘Synchronicity’. That same link to ‘The Book Of Job’, [purpose of]. "Yet in my flesh shall i 'see' god'." [Job 19:26].

Analogy? of same..."Once the Numerologist went to see the Academy Award film, 'Charley,' with a friend who was particularly dubious about this '23' obsession. The story of the film concerns a low grade moron {IQ around 70} who is transformed by neuro-surgery into a superhuman genius {IQ around 200+}. In the crucial operation scene, the number on the operating room is visible, and it is of course, 23." [Extract from the book 'The Cosmic Trigger'].

'Lucifer' = light bringer. Analogy = ''Beast that rises in the East''. See it? Question. S/E as a means...?

The author attempting to understand its {i.e.,23} significance in his daily life. Gives countless examples. In the same book he believes he has deciphered A. Crowleys riddle within the 'Book of Lies,' that therein lies the secret of Freemasonry. i.e.,chapter 69. What he fails to mention {or see?} is 69 = 23x3. He does the same when explaining the origins of Crowley's 'Book of Law' by way of links {i.e.,coincidences and/or synchronistic ones} - between Egypt; Rose {i.e.,Crowleys first wife} Horus; Winged globe; all together with Crowleys special number of 666. Finally culminating on page 111 with a connection to the Nommo archetype {enlarged elsewhere}. What he fails to 'see' {or does not mention} is that pages number to 666 - i.e.,the magical square of 111 - and that link to what is implied to the ''beast that rises in the East'' {origin of Crowleys alias?}. Lastly; what comes around, goes around - speculation within the same book, i.e.,'Cosmic Trigger' - BUT NOT by the author {i.e.,'Afterwords' by Saul-Paul Sirag} - on Eddingtons ''approach'' to derive the proton-electron mass ratio {137 link} i.e., ''Eddington believes the lesson from physics and especially from quantum mechanics is that insofar as we can describe the world at all we are necessary describing the structure of our own minds."

Coincidence and synchronicity - ''hand in hand?'' i.e.,physical coincidences represented with the number 23 But once that ''connection'' is made {enlarged elsewhere} = ''synchronicities''? Understanding that universal framework gives that HYPOTHESIS a legitimate possibility. NOTHING MORE.

23 divided by 137 and/or 69 divided by 137. Almost there - yet not there. Anything?

A {working?} example: "The man 'machine' is the power of accident. His activities may fall by accident into some sort of 'channel' which has been created by mechanical or cosmic forces and they may by accident move along this channel for a certain time, giving the illusion that aims of some kind are being attained...The man 'machine' can do nothing. To him and around him everything just happens. In order TO DO it is necessary to understand the law of octaves..." ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

''Accident'' in relation to 'coincidence' - ''Channel'' in relation to 'ploughing ones furrow' - ''law of octaves'' {enlarged elsewhere} in relation to synchronicities. All as a means...?

And/or: "If essence is subject to the influence of fate, does it mean that compared with 'accident' fate is always favorable to a man?'' asked somebody. ''And can fate bring a man to the work?''...'No, it does not mean this at all,' G. answered him. 'Fate is better than accident only in the sense that it is possible to take it into account, it is possible to know it beforehand; it is possible to prepare for what is ahead. In regard to accident one can know nothing. But fate can also be unpleasant or difficult. In this event, however, there are means for isolating oneself from fate. The first step towards this is getting away from 'general laws' {''23''?}. Just as there is individual accident, so is there general or collective accident. And in the same way as there is individual fate, there is a general or collective fate. Collective accident and collective fate are governed by general laws. If a man wishes to create individuality of his own he must first free himself { ''137''?} from general laws. General laws are by no means all obligatory for man, he can free himself from many of them if he frees himself from 'buffers' and from imagination. All this is connected from liberation of the 'personality'. Personality feeds on imagination and falsehood." Same book.

Side note {simplified?}: ''Essence'' {'bit'?} in relation to positive/negative habits? Potential {results?} of.

Analogy?...The early morning walk i referred to took place when Jesus was 23, and therefore some time before the mantle of the Christ had fully clothed him." ['A Man Seen Afar'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"We have found a strange footprint on the shores of the unknown. We have devised profound theories , one after another, to account for its origin. At last we have succeeded in reconstructing the creature that made the footprint. And lo! It is our own" [Eddington quote, same book].

"The no-mans land between Physics and the psychology of the Unconscious [is] the most fascinating yet the darkest hunting ground of our times." Carl Jung.

Question. ''no-mans land'' = 'astral plane' ?

Eddington - one of a few people to understand 'relativity' well enough to explain {teach?} it. Yet when attempting to define - the Fine Structure Constant - with a value - he arrived at 136. Hence his 'nickname' 136+1. Question. Coincidence {23} or a meaningful one {137?} ?

Try ''nickname''.

"The no-mans land between Physics and the psychology of the Unconscious [is] the most fascinating yet the darkest hunting ground of our times." Carl Jung.

Question. What symbol/s {therefore archetypes} represent 'the hunt' ?

..."The 'Investigator' {i.e.,authors alter ego} remembers thinking during the six weeks between major experiments, that whatever he had tuned into was not ''Cosmic Consciousness''{12+5?} but a kind of planetary consciousness; {10+7?} - he wondered who coined the term, ''cosmic consciousness,'' and what it contained...This time i moved in space-time fan wise, unlike the backward-in-time movement of the drug trip. The 'Yogi' {same} became almost conscious of a kind of galactic star network, an intelligence that seemed not fully formed but evolving. Somehow this resonated in my mind with the Sufi teaching that Allah is constantly recreating himself every second. The trip was full of light and joy, the White Light of the Void jazz you've all heard; but dim, not fully achieved. The 'Researcher' {same} went off to sleep not quite satisfied. The next morning, July the 23rd, the 'Shaman' {same} awoke with an urgent message, from dreamland and scribbled quickly in his magical diary, ''Sirius is very important." There was more, almost at the tip of my tongue, but i couldn't remember it. During the day i looked through my occult books, seeking references to the Dog star, Sirius. Although skeptical about Astrology, i assumed that the dream message was some hint that the Sirius cycle should be part of my magical experiments in the future. Astrology seemed like nonsense to me, but i was willing to give it a try, in an open ended manner of Dr. Lilly's ''Beliefs unlimited'' exercise." [Extract from the book 'The Cosmic Trigger'. All emphasis - this readers with the exception of the word in bold print].

He goes on to find out - through practical research this time - information on same, i.e.,that it rises as a precursor to Orion - known as the Helical rising - from the 23rd July. Other connections include key words as the pheonix / new year/ Freemasonry / third eye / blazing star - to name a few. All enlarged within. It also explains - if only to this researcher - {i.e.,as a study exercise; not as an alter ego one} why the author feels it was more a 'planetary' experience than a 'cosmic' one, i.e.,''Dog'' in relation to lower; hence - ''not fully achieved''. That link to the word and description of ''void''. All in relation {or relative} to the self. Hence the link to the word in bold print. Those ''higher'' keys - once that 'gap' has been 'bridged' - would eventually be assessed either by research or in a dream state - regardless whether self induced or otherwise. Represented in the above example with information on Sirius - which as stated - the author has to evaluate for himself. Proving {if only for this reader} the viability of the subject material ONLY, regardless of how it is obtained or 'perceived'. Other keys enlarged elsewhere to add {or detract?} from ,i.e.,what is implied with a ''light'' 'behind' and/or in 'front' of. What does it represent? Why Sirius? What significance is the bow/arrow? How about other constellations, i.e.,any importance to Orion? i.e.,as an example; the Hare constellation. Why should ''South'' be significant? etc etc.

"Crowley once said that the 'magicians' sole aim was to interpret his own 'magical' record {i.e.,dreams and/or visions and therefore and/or archetypes/keys}, and after many years i have come to agree with him." [Extract from the book 'The Magister'. Emphasis, this readers].

This reader, however would add - REGARDLESS OF WHOSE THEY ARE.

A {working} example {the very first one?}: "Homer uses Canis Major to reiterate his idea of the celestial sphere when in Book 23 of the Iliad, Achilles tosses this way and that during a restless sleep...Homers description of Canis Major {'Great Dog'} reaches imaginative heights when he describes how the constellation was created to accommodate the return to the skies of the star Sirius, and how Hephaestus, the smith god, forges new armour for Achilles...The stars of Canis Major are used as the body of Achilles. His personal star Sirius, lies at the heart of the constellation, whether it is viewed as a Great Dog or a warrior...'' ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

''Return'' in relation to 'incarnation/reincarnation. Representation of.

Question. 7th / 8th octave link? Hence...

"It is as the creator of the 'glittering new armour' and shield of Achilles that Hephaestus is perhaps best known, and his masterpiece represents the stars in an area of sky where a new constellation was created to accommodate the return to the heavens of the star Sirius after a long absence. In his role as the creator of astronomical concepts, Hephaestus is also credited with making the ancient staff that had been passed down to Agamemnon by his forbears - a symbolic pointer to the north celestial pole. To provide such astronomical functions, Hephaestus required his own home in the skies, and the details given in Book 18 when assessed in the same way as the information about other gods and warriors resulted in a vivid and unmistakable image of Perseus. How Hephaestus could represent Perseus if the constellation had already been allocated in one manifestation to Diomedes is not at present understood, but an answer may yet be found in pages of notes by Edna Leigh. In these notes she associates many other Greek gods with constellations, and we suspect these were her conclusions on yet another layer of ancient Greek astronomy..."

Can you see {the possibility} of what the author cannot - when ALL the information is assessed. Hence to a possible deeper understanding of subject material - and therefore {by implication} the 'beliefs' of our ancestors - past and present...

"No explanatory notes for her views have yet been found, but it is expected that her papers will be made available for those who wish to study the deeper implications of Homer's Secret Iliad. Considering Hephaestus role as the original creator of the constellations, new lines of inquiry may indicate that Homer preserved in the Iliad the remnants of an even older astronomical culture than that associated with Minoan Crete and Mycenae." [Same book]. Among others try ''lame'' - [Part 2].

Another coincidence?..."The kings arrival in the sky is a new birth...The divine entities dance attendance on him, reassemble his bones, give him back the use of his senses, by opening his eyes and mouth, rituals which are accomplished 'magically' in the ''Room of Gold'' {'Tut' link?} on the mummy or its effigy with two adzes and the presentation of a bull's thigh. 'My mouth is opened by Ptah with celestial scissors' proclaims the 'deceased' in the Coming Forth into Day - chapter 23." [Extract from the book 'Egyptian Mysteries'].

A working example?..."The New Heaven and the New Earth represent a 'new' mind and a new heart. Throughout the Old Testament you may have noticed that the Lord makes occasional reference to giving us new hearts or ''circumcising'' our hearts. The ''new heaven and new earth'' John sees is humanities perfected state of consciousness and regenerated body. The human mind at this point is now one with the divine... in control and free from outside limitations : ''If you conquer, i will make you a pillar in the temple of my god; and you will never go out of it. I will write on you the name of my god,{nickname?} and the name of the city of my god, this new Jerusalem that comes down from my god out of heaven and my own new name.'' Rev. 3:12...{''connected'' link- see it?}.

REFRESHER: "But as i heard my Sioux name being called over and over, i then knew for the first time who i was..." ['Dances With Wolves' / K. Costner].

continued: "The number value for the New Jerusalem is 1224 which is also the numerical value of the Greek word for ''fish''. This same number includes ''gods creation'' / ''paradise'' and ''i am the way''. The word Jerusalem means ''sacred peace''. When humanity recognizes the divinity within them as the controlling force of the world, and turns away from their own selfish pattern of living for self alone, the old pattern disappears and the 'Christ' pattern emerges." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way'. Emphasis, this readers]. See it? Try ''pattern'' for a different take on same principle.

Side note. Beside the Great Pyramid was found a boat pit. All in parts. 1224 parts. 41limestone blocks above. Coincidence or a meaningful one? ['Egypt Unwrapped: Secrets of the Sphinx' / History channel].

"Like 41 and 101; 1001 exceeds the great number and therefore comes to mean 'infinite' and/or 'numberless'." ['Mystery of Numbers'. Enlarged elsewhere].

Refresher: ''This symbol of the etheric plane is nowhere no more openly announced than in Notra-Dame, France...A figure is displayed within a huge lozenge, the bounds of which are decorated with small lozenges. Altogether there are 41 lozenges in this single architectural detail..." ['The Zelator']. Coincidence or a ?

"It is said that the 'New' Jerusalem will be built on an Island of swamp." ['Curse of Oak Island' series 4. Episode 3].

Refresher: "The waters ebb and flow. Let the 'magician' guard himself from drowning at the point where land and water meet. The midway spot, which is neither dry nor wet, must provide the standing place whereon his feet are set. When water, land and air meet, there is the place for 'magic' to be wrought."

Question. 'Ear' shape?

"The 'head' can offer no testament to these things you follow, these 'things' you seek. The tears come to those only who do not yet understand. They are the test of understanding...You think to much in this way...Learn to look more. Shake you head free and look. Look at the source of sound. Look at the ear. If you look at the ear, you will see why there were two doors at Erech. Is the ear an entry or a gauze - a veil? Does it filter or does it block? There is a greater mystery in the 'veil' than is generally realized...For the moment, i can only tell you that the veil which looks like delicate 'white' lace is made of salt." ['The Zelator']. Try ''ear''.

Question. What 'substance' {if any} can be left behind due to the 'evaporation' of water/air. What does {can?} - it represent?

N....Connection between Neolithic cave drawings and paleolithic ‘bear’ skulls and the zodiac. Especially in relation to the number seven, [explained elsewhere]...and the smaller/greater bear constellation. In relation Micro/Macro within a 'journey' . That link to what later became known as the Precession of the Equinox.

behindP...Explanation of limbo / Eternal / time differential / resurrection / reincarnation. In relation to the journey of A-C. The connection of the above to T. Lethbridges book on the Pendulum; especially in relation to the differences in ‘time’, in A, B and C. Together with...."The third type of netherworld 'snake' in Egyptian mythology is the symbolic snake. These were sometimes shown as the uraeus on the pharaoh's brow, or seen standing vertically on the tips of their tails. The vertical ones are often called Nehep snakes, from the verb meaning to 'leap' up, which was a euphemism for resurrection, since resurrection was always associated within the Egyptian mind, with the leaping of the resurrected sun over the horizon at dawn." [Chapter eight. 'The Sphinx Mystery'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Think about it in relation to the 'coiled' [sleeping] 'position', i.e.,horizontal. 'Benefits' of, relative to the individual, together with what the word 'leap' is a representational of. That final link to 'Sirius'.

'h'

Coincidence or a meaningful one {found at Gobekli-tepe}.

The Tau cross. Some say 'its' true representation. Indicative of 'raised arms'.[Wikipedia], together with Exodus 17:11. "And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed." Or in its physical 'form' the 'H' structures found at Puma Punku in Bolivia. Or Egyptian equivalent of same = Ka, i.e.,its symbol = 'raised arms/hands', [chapter eight. 'The Sphinx Mystery'].

Question. Any figures at Gobekli-tepe with raised arms?

Francis of Assisi used it constantly. The patron saint of 'animals'. Spiritual equivalent of higher over lower. Hence the link to his quote, "as he was dying, he pointed to a crucifix saying, 'This is the 'source' of all my knowledge". [Page 441, 'The Sacred History' / J. Black. Emphasis, this readers, i.e.,think about it, relative to 'horizontal / vertical' symbolism]. Or "Then I Daniel looked, and behold there were two others. One on this side of the bank of the river, the other on the other side. And one said to the one clothed in Linen, who was upon the waters of the river, how long will it be to the end of these wonders? And i heard the man clothed in linen which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right and left hand unto 'heaven', and sware by him that liveth forever, that it shall be for a time, times and a half....." [Daniel12:5-6-7].

"A river of thoughts''.

Understanding this subjects symbolism in relation to 'river' instead of sea... 'above' the water, not within or along side it, [i.e.,higher over lower]...'banks' of the river relative to 'pillars' [symbolism of], gives meaning to all that symbolism. [explained within]. Clues. 'Linen' was the Hebrew equivalent of a representation of someone beginning, 'a journey', i.e.,beginners/student 'gear'....a work still in progress.... as indicated by that first 'physical' [incarnate] example/representation of same, "who laid down with a 'young' chap in a linen cloth". Or even the thirteen layers of linen used for the mummification of Tutankhamun. Think about it, relative to a 'positive potential' within a further 'development'. All indicative of something outside of the obvious.

As is the 'nine layers of coffin'. Or the ten figures with raised arms together with the 'divine couple'[explained elsewhere, together with page 64-66, 'The 12th Planet']. That link to 'twelve'[10+2] and therefore a further possible potential, represented by 'thirteen'. All indicative of a 'further' understanding. 'Above the waters'.,..a link to wet/dry symbolism, as is the symbol of the 'thirteen' scaled 'fish'. Shown purposely to be 'breathing', [Coptic equivalent]. Page 39, of the book 'The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life'. Plus mentioned elsewhere, in picture 'form'. Find it, to understand it. Rather than 'leave to later'.

three-and-a-half

''Ptolemy, too, identified stars with parts of the 'body' of a constellation, and his model of the earth at the center of the universe was similar to that of Homer, though greater enhanced by the application of mathematics and geometry." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

As for "a time, times and a half" [three and a half], equates to the mid point of those 'seven' chakras.[Number symbolism]. Representing the 'middle' [key] way. Benefit of. As speculated in chapter twenty of 'The Synchronicity Key', but for more informed data, if only to access the part within the whole; hence the link to the title of the book;..'The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life' by D. Melchizedek. [vol one, chapter one].

Other books mentioned of the same ilk, but from different 'perspectives'...compare, to 'obtain' those common links [keys]. All enclosed within. That same representation within those 'T' shaped pillars at Gobekli-tepe. In the main, will be seen with no four legged 'animals' on those horizontal pillars, {i.e.,mainly 'birds'} - only on those 'below'. Think about it in relation to the meaning of 'Israel', relative to the 'Tau', and that 'relationship' to the meaning of 'Moses'. All with the reader / observer in mind..."and his days shall be 120 years [Beresheet 6:3] alludes to Moses. Through him the Torah was given."[Section 478,vol one ,The Zohar by Rev Berg]. Relates to number symbolism, by way of '12'. Recall, Moses who never crossed over to the other side of that 'river'.[Higher of the lower?]. Or something else.

Rostau?

"A different 'take' on the same {theme?}: "Gwenddoleu's wonderful 'orchard' was guarded by two 'dusky birds', and each one wore a 'yoke of gold'...The two dusky birds are similar to the ravens of Odin {mentioned elsewhere} - they represent the divinity powers, the 'organ' of {clairvoyant?} sight, a universal faculty in ancient times, which depended upon a peculiar vibratory relationship between two parts of the brain whose function, today, have become more or less atrophied as far as clairvoyance is concerned. The effect, when this peculiar relation was established, was, to the clairvoyant observer of the process {objective clause?} - like a revolving form of light {seen?} above the forehead, resembling wings or 'petals' {chakra link?}. In representations, for example, of the Egyptian god Amun , they were shown as a knotted or twisted structure ending in two horns. For this reason Moses was also depicted with horns {as was other individuals such as Alexander}." ['The Flaming Door: The Mission of the Celtic Folk Soul' / E. C. Merry. Emphasis, this readers - with the exception of the words 'organ' and observer].

''Observer'' in relation to :"The children of Seth first possessed that peculiar sort of wisdom, which is concerned with the heavenly bodies." Enlarged throughout.

Refresher: "The 'flower' which is the key to modern Spiritual development is the ajna, the chakra located between the eyes. This flower is dual lobed, which is why in some literature, it is described as having two petals. It is said to be presided over by the hakini."[Bibliographic notes to chapter 5, 'The Zelator'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Breathing easier?

In other words an aspect of the minds eye? That ''organ'' that we all use without being {in the main} aware of it? And which we use in multiple circumstances for anything and everything including learning subject material. The only difference is - this subject has a different 'dimension' to it. Yes or No?

"The discovery of the tomb [Christian Rosencreutz] appears to be by accident. In fact it had been pre-destined. This is revealed by certain singular events and apparent coincidences. This , as anyone with a modicum of first hand esoteric experience will aver, is a hallmark of inner / outer plane mediation. The circumstances of the discovery are that, after 'death' of Christian Rosencreutz, the succession of his office was handed on first to Fr. D. and then to Fr. A. who, on his death bed, announced to his successor Fr. N. N. that a great discovery was shortly to be made. Fr. N. N. happened to be an architect [an interesting hint of the links to freemasonry] and decided to make some alterations to 'his building' before going on 'a journey.' Accordingly he moved a memorial tablet of brass that recorded 'all the names of the brethren with some few other things.' This necessitated removing a great nail, which in turn revealed a hidden door, upon which was written the year, and the statement in great letters ''after 120 years i will be revealed.'' It is worth noting that this is an interior discovery." [Extract taken from part 3, 'The Rose Cross and the Goddess.' Mentioned elsewhere].

"...It is not enough simply to learn the 'intellectual' facts about esoteric philosophy, to have them affixed as if on a brass plate or tablet in the mind. One must go beyond them. This entails a willingness for transformation, to be a rebuilder of one's own soul, eager to break down that which is no longer of use, and to reconstruct where called to do so. This removal of the nailed metallic plate to find the 'hidden door' is likewise the finding of the center of the 'magic' circle of life experience." [Same book]. 'Lower' in relation to 'higher'?

Understanding that ''universal framework'' defines the above in relation to the true meaning and distinction between incarnation and reincarnation - IN THE PRESENT MOMENT/TIME.

A {working?} example, i.e.,in the present moment?: "There exists a possibility of experimental verification of the relation of personality to essence. In Eastern schools ways and means are known by the help of which it is possible to separate man's personality from his essence. For this purpose they sometimes use hypnosis, sometimes special narcotics, sometimes certain kinds of exercises. If personality and essence are for a time separated in a man by one or another of these means, two beings, as it were, are formed in him, who speak in different voices, have completely different tastes, different aims and interests, and one of these two 'beings' often proves to be on the level of a small child..." ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

These days {in the present moment}i.e., in the grand scheme of things {Micro within the Macro?} - a study program has the same 'effect' once ''essence'' is understood within the whole. Try ''child'' to 'see' if you agree or disagree.

"The Kingdom of Heaven is within you. The time has come for external forms and expressions to be left behind. There is no Temple in the heavenly Jerusalem, for religion has no place in Heaven. Man is his own Temple. A mans heart is the altar of god...." [First chapter,{'The inner Quest'} from the book 'The Mind of Christ' {Meditations on Christian Themes} by Anthony Duncan].

Analogy of same, with the same intent..."The tomb from which the savoir will arise is the heart of men and women; if the good in them awakens to self-consciousness, then will it appear to them as a sun, shedding its light upon a better and heavier generation." Quote from the book by F. Hartman.

Graffito_A

I have seen the sun at midnight. [Apuleius, The Golden Ass]. Question. Why Midnight? Clue the eve of a new day. The tail end of something and therefore the beginning of something else? Son of?

Q...Purpose of the ‘Feast of Fools’ and the ’Golden Ass’ story in relation to thunder / lightening keys. Link to..’Apes and ape lore in the middle ages and renaissance’. Studies of the Warburg institute. That link to C. Jungs quote in the forward to ‘The Trickster character' /P. Radin.

That link to the legend of ‘Fulcanelli’, [purpose of].

"We left shortly thereafter and i gave no further thought to the matter. I didn't stay in touch with the Paris people - wanted to get away from all that social involvement. Then in 1926 i find out about the publication of 'Le Mystere des Cathedrales!' It was entirely based on my work!''... ' I recall that this session ended abruptly about this point - and while we were to return to the subject of those mysterious manuscripts in the near future, he never again mentioned the two fold 'theft and trickery' at the heart of Fulcanelli '." [From the book 'Al-Kemi' by A. Vandenbroeck. Emphasis, this readers].

".....For this reason certain calendrical days were set aside when all the norms of society were released, or even inverted. In the Roman Mysteries, the important period of such misrule had been the 'Saturnalia'. Important elements from this festival were carried over, almost intact, to the mediaeval Feast of Fools. During this feast, the priests would dress as clowns and women, and generally ''act the fool." [Chapter 7, 'The Zelator'].

The ''He'' is a She. Question. Who could that 'She' be?

There can only be a few possibilities, considering the generation AND/OR era that the story 'evolved' in. In other words who would know this subject [by way of the 'Alchemical' one]... well enough... to play the 'fool'.

Picture...South west in relation to North east. 'Younger' relative to 'elder'. The beginning of something. 'Death'....'rebirth'..its mid point. Hebrew equivalent Yhvh. Y = 700 [number symbolism]. 'Top right corner'. Possibilities of. See anything?

"This 'higher' intelligence, this ''sun at midnight'', which is the conjunction of the spiritual sun and the spiritual moon - or, in other words, the intimate union of intelligence and wisdom - is the 'star' of Hermeticism. It is the 'sun' of the 19th arcanum. It is the principle of intuition, or the intimate union of 'transcendental' intelligence and wisdom...It is called to effect the passage from argumentative reasoning to comprehensive intuition." [Extract from the book by Tomberg]. Remember - representational of.

"The word 'spiritual' should be associated with the word 'eyes'. This is a reference to the eyes of the mind or heart. To see is to understand." [From the book by T. Nottingham].

Example of: i.e.,once that ''intuition'' is applied - relative to a subject - it can be used - [amongst other things]- to decipher the following...

" M. Canseliet [Eugene] was taken to his room, on the first floor, in a tower of the manor...Returning to his rooms, M. Canseliet went to his window to breath some fresh air and observed the patio below. He saw a group of children - probably children of the other guests at the manor - who were playing. But there was something strange about them. In looking more closely, he realized it was in the clothing they were wearing. They looked like they were from the 16th century. The children were playing some sort of game, and M. Canseliet thought they were dressed this way for a masquerade or costume party. That night he went to bed without thinking more about the incident. The next day, he returned to his experiments in the laboratory he had been given. From time to time his master ['Fulcanelli'] visited him briefly to watch over his progress. One morning, M. Canseliet, descending the staircase of the tower in which he was staying, found himself under a vaulted porch, that opened on to the patio when, suddenly, he heard voices. Crossing the patio, he approached a group of three woman who were talking animatedly. M. Canseliet was surprised to see that they were wearing ample and long clothes in the style of the 16th century, just like the children he had seen two days previously. M. Canseliet was torn between surprise at what he was seeing and embarrassment at being dressed so casually. He went to turn around to his rooms when, as the women passed by, one of them turned abruptly, looked at him, and gave him a smile. All this lasted only an instant. The woman rejoined her companions...M. Canseliet remained shaken because he could have sworn that the face of the woman who had given him the smile was that of Fulcanelli..." [Taken from the book 'Fulcanelli' by P. Riviere. Also within the book 'The Fulcanelli Phenomenon' by K. R. Johnson].

Understand those keys to' see' something other than the obvious, i.e.,...

"I know nothing, and all preconceived opinions have been taken from me, which is the beginning of learning, i.e.,that one must first become a child, and then be wet nursed into knowledge, as is now taking place within me." [ Quote by Emanuel Swedenborg on an ''inner'' understanding. Chapter three,'The Presence of Other Worlds']. Together with...

mandalla"They build their individual towers of Babel which fall, as a rule, according to the law of all towers of Babel, and experience, sooner or later, a salutary fall, as is the teaching of the 16th card of the Tarot. They do not fall from a real height into a real abyss; it is only from an imaginary height that they fall and they fall only to the ground, i.e., they learn the lesson that we human beings of today have all learned or have still to learn..." [Taken from the book by the author Tomberg].

And/or..."I've had more failures than successes. Never afraid to fail." Quote by Chris Coleman - manager of Wales prior to semi-finals in Euro 2016. First time any participant from within the British Isles had reached such an event in decades.

"Synchronistic example: "There is one final element in this tangled skein of coincidence concerning my American trips. On the second visit i was taken by Paul, my host, to the top of one of the great Trade Towers...This was in 1989, track forward a dozen years to a 'ritual' in which i was taking part in London. Part of this consisted of a ritual officer taking up a stack of Tarot Trumps and placing them upon the 'altar', announcing the name of each one as he went. When he came to the 18th - the Lightening Struck Tower - it turned out to be missing. Where could it have gone? We had no alternative but to leave it out, and carry on reading the rest. In fact, the explanation was simple, it had stuck to the back of the card in front of it. But on my way home, i was surprised to find the trains packed with office workers. They said they had been sent home early because something terrible had happened in New York. The date was September the 11th - the Tower at whose submit i had been standing with my friend Paul - had been struck down. Coincidence? No doubt. But why do such coincidences as the missing card occur? For some reason it seems that on occasion strings are being pulled upon an inner level for purpose we cannot comprehend. Maybe just to remind us that strings and string pullers are there?" ['I Called it Magic'].

Question. Why 18th and not the 16th? {missprint?}Question 2. Try ''autopilot'' - think about it in relation to ''archetypes'' and Joseph Campbell's quote. A possibility or not?

As seen from a different perspective..."Every culture in history - from pre-Biblical civilizations and inclusive of the ancient Greeks {whom we revere as the founders of Western civilization} - tells stories of an ancient, more perfect world. No war, no illness, no disease. Shangri-La. Atlantis. Then came some kind of 'fall' - a disengagement from the forces that bound us together in 'love' and 'happiness'. A separation. Some people attribute this event to the Garden of Eden. Some cultures attribute it to a time before that. With minor variations, this story is universal - locked in the collective unconscious of the human race, imprinted in our genes. To varying degrees, the Reconnection phenomenon takes us back, in our intrinsic memories , to this golden age, and ties us into our original sense of profound connection with all of life. Yet it is not simply moving back; its moving forward to something new as well. From this wholeness comes 'healing'. True healing. Evolutionary healing." [From the book by Dr E. Pearl].

Think about it in relation to such {archetypes?} as defined within this overall subject as a ''U-turn''. And 'love/happiness' in relation to the word ''grace''. Both of which are also... ''locked in the collective unconscious of the human race..."

That final link to J. Campbell's quote about a symbol being "energy evoking" - in relation to an 'end result' or final destination? OR both?

A practical [synchronistic?] example..."Shortly after film school i was elated to get into Art College to finally study a Fine Art degree...Unfortunately, both the experience of film school and art school were littered with an array of tough challenges. And although i was, at long last, pursuing my ambition of being an artist, i was steadily becoming a little worse mentally each day, aligning myself with a coterie of the wrong sort of people in London and setting myself up for a colossal fall." [Extract from the book by Q. S. Lam].

The author; who has no knowledge of this subject; identifies herself; or more importantly; those 'warring' [''wrestling'' link] - aspects of her ''internal self'' with Fred, Mia, and Sophia. Fred whom she feels to be a negative aspect of herself - could be identified with the Egyptian Set. Mia - more of a deva; with negative traits, could be identified with Nephthys. Sophia - 'the cloud catcher' - with Isis. And Horus; with the individual herself - just as Hatshepsut and Cleopatra did with their own 'male' aspect.

Question. Is this subject therefore nothing more than a study in Psychosis? From the dawn of human kind?

'The Science of Kriya Yoga' : Chapter from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi: Paramahansa Yogananda' ].

"It calms the dualistic turmoil by a divine inner certainty." Quote by the main character from the same book]. Question. What is being implied?

And/or..."Skillful meditation, healthy living, and realization of our 'Eternal Self' are the practices of Kriya Yoga..." [Back cover of the book 'Kriya Yoga' by Ryan Kurczak. Emphasis, this readers]. Think about it in relation to the 'divine bit'. Question. All illusional?

"The allusions to Jesus and God during my psychosis were potent, which is strange since i am an agnostic and not at all religious {many psychotic episodes have these quasi-religious overtones}. Nietzsche was right: 'God is dead'. After psychosis, however, i wonder if there are other forces that come into play, an acute sensitivity of things that go unnoticed..." [Quote, by Q. S. Lam, including parenthesis].

And/or: "Psychology and esotericism set out to explore the darkness outside of our knowledge, whether it be dwelling in the 'unconscious' or the 'astral', the mundus imaginalis, or the dark side of the Tree of Life. Dion Fortune, whose life we shall examine further wrote: As soon as i touched the deeper aspects of practical psychology and watched the dissection of the mind under psycho-analysis, i realised that there was very much more in the mind than was accounted for by the accepted psychological theories. I saw that we stood in the center of a small circle of light thrown by accurate scientific knowledge, but around us was a vast, circumambient sphere of darkness, and in that darkness dim shapes were moving,{'astral' link}. It was in order to understand the hidden aspects of the mind that i originally took up the study of esotericism. In this small circle of light, surrounded by darkness, we are, as Plato says, ''strange prisoners'' and psychology and esotericism both seek the keys to our escape and restoration. " [Extract from the book 'The Magister'].

"For just as no one comes to the Father but by Jesus Christ [John xiv,6], so does no one understand the Holy Trinity but by Mary-Sophia...And just as the Holy Trinity manifests itself through Jesus Christ, so understanding this manifestation is possible only through intuitive apprehension of what the above represents... " [Extract from the book by Tomberg].

Those same keys used to define something- that inner something - that would be understood by those who understood the same [subject]. Curiosity to everyone else - and/or an ''unknown'' factor. But, once the spark is lit - that same curiosity that could lead to a deeper interest; a deeper interest that could lead to their own 'revelations'. That internalization that leads to a 'balance' - its that 'equilibrium' that is represented as a 'river' within a journey. Framework of . Mechanics of. Different authors expounding same; but from different 'angles' - from different start points. Very similar to the purpose of 'Oak Island'. Enlarged elsewhere.

N.B. Gnosis = ''known,'' i.e., a known quantity. [Dictionary]. Anything? Try ''gnosis'' - purpose of.

Question. Nothing more than riddle makers? Hiding [or coming to terms] with an ongoing psychosis? Generation after generation?

"Signs of psychosis are mania, rapid speech patterns, a fanatical zeal for order, frenetic work activity, flight of ideas, inability to sleep, amplified sounds, identification of patterns relating to numbers/people, [mainly family members], vivid disturbing visions, and acute paranoia. When full blown psychosis occurs, all the symptoms are woven together to create a seamless other universe, where only you have the messianic power and answers to solve the world's problems and crack the code..."

"...She was Bosnian and i was Bangladeshi and then i noticed the B's in Bosnia and Bangladesh and that if i inverted them they became the number three and that these B's in my life were actually 3's - were everywhere - and all these connections were profound and steeped in an allegorical divinity. Associations began to form, pulling all the strands of the code together..." [Q. S. LAM: Italics, this readers].

Synchronistic link?..."At this point of revelation, Virgil, Dante's guide hitherto, the great exemplar of the heights of human intellect, poetic inspiration and magical power, disappears. He can take Dante no further. His instructor from henceforth, who now leads him through the heavens, is the great feminine power of 'divine' love. This is no theological or platonic abstraction, for she announces herself as a flesh and blood woman. 'Look at me well: truly i am, truly i am {B}eatrice', the girl whom Dante had loved in Florence." [From the book by G. Knight].

'Intellect' in relation {comparable?} - to 'gnosis' - by way of 'grace'? Hence...

"In Dante's vision the masculine intellect, even at its highest and most poetic or 'magical' levels, can only go so far in the comprehension of reality, and that is to the external limits of the Earthly paradise. Therefore when Dante having traversed the deepest pits of Hell, and climbed the spiral path of Mount Purgatory, comes to the brook that circumscribes the Garden of Eden, he is able to go no further under 'Virgils' guidance. Virgil can only return to limbo, the noble but love-less state of the intellect, that can only see the world on its own terms and within its own limitations. To go further the force of 'love' is necessary. This force is embodied by Beatrice, who expresses not only mortal love, but carries the blinding, transfiguring power of divine love as well; that which created the 'worlds' and hold them in being. It is she who meets Dante at the limits of the earthy paradise and escorts him through the heavenly spheres to the limits of the UNcreate Empyreum {Ain Sof and/or daath/void link. Enlarged elsewhere} beyond the heavens. It is in fact she, the embodiment of the feminine principle, who is responsible for the whole Divine Comedy anyway, for it is upon her initiative that Dante, wandering lost in the dark wood of the world,{'intellect' only link} is given the opportunity to embark {i.e.,beginning of} upon his own tour of the inner conditions of the soul." [Same book. All emphasis, this readers].

"...What is to come is the core of the Mysteries of the Feminine Principle. It is akin to the awakening of the sleeping goddess in naked glory and splendour in the 'Chemical Marriage of Christian Rosencreutz. And also the appearance of the great goddess Isis...to the repentant Lucius the ass. Or to the 'sky walking' dakinas who are the consorts of the highest compassionate buddhas in the Tibetan system. Or to the source of the golden apples of the Hesperides - that were the key to the possession of the pure maiden huntress Atalanta. " [From the book by G. Knight].

N.B. As a side note recall the posture in the painting by Botticelli - i.e.,not sleeping. But awakened to something? Through study? Finally try ''Atalanta'' to define Oak Island - its intent and purpose - by the same method.

Refresher: "Psychology and esotericism set out to explore the darkness outside of our knowledge, whether it be dwelling in the 'unconscious' or the 'astral', the mundus imaginalis, or the dark side of the Tree of Life. Dion Fortune, whose life we shall examine further wrote: As soon as i touched the deeper aspects of practical psychology and watched the dissection of the mind under psycho-analysis, i realised that there was very much more in the mind than was accounted for by the accepted psychological theories.

In this small circle of light, surrounded by darkness, we are, as Plato says, ''strange prisoners'' and psychology and esotericism both seek the keys to our escape and restoration. " [Extract from the book 'The Magister']. Try ''strange/r'' and ''peculiar''. Preferably before those first impressions whisper something else.

Something ''fallen'' {and/or ''asleep''} that once made aware of, becomes those familiar ''foundation stones''. Start point of.

"...Possibly significant in this respect is that in the language of the Sumerians, who thrived on the Mesopotamia Plain from ca. 2900 BC to 1940 BC, the word for plancenta, 'us', is more or less identical to that used for 'blood' and 'death' {'us'}, as well as the word for 'base' or 'foundation place' {'us'} - as in a place to set up the central pole for a tent. Such a term might easily have applied to Gobekli-tepe, where the pole in question was represented by the enclosures twin central pillars..." ['Gobekli Tepe' by A. Collins]. Try ''womb'' as well as ''twin''.

"It is upon this unpromising foundation that Apuleius built a profound story of initiation into the Mysteries of Isis. When Lucius, the hero of the story, is turned into an ass, he falls into a semi-animal condition from a higher state of being. This is analogous to the Neo-Platonic idea of the human spirit falling into material existence...the subsequent adventures of the ass are thus parallel to the initiations of the Mysteries, that lead from the material world to the condition of the UNfallen state. [Extract taken from the book by G. Knight].

That same link to Freemasonry and their 'equivalent' of the above... by way of, 'Solomon's Temple', and 'Hiram Abif'...with each member in mind. Explained within. That same link [by way of ''Freemasonry''] to the 'legend' of Oak Island. Purpose of. Notice its position [i.e.,Nova Scotia] relative to the ''Pillars of Hercules {and/or Heracles}.'' Together with its position in relation to the Equator and North pole. All in relation to a ''water mass.'' South in relation to North. East in relation to West. 'Wet' in relation to 'dry.' The start point of which becomes those two 'pillars'. As a representation of something. From something unknown ['wet'] to becoming known ['dry']. Representational of.

Finally Richard Wagners opera of three acts, namely 'Parsifal', of which he describes as..."not as an opera, but as a festival play for the consecration of the stage." That link to the 'Horns of consecration'. 'Wagners stage' and what is 'seen', becomes that equivalent...

"The ancient mysteries were only sacred art - being in the background conscious of mysticism and gnosis. But after forgetting this background or, so to say, after this background receded too far into the background, there remained a gnosis [or a ''revelation''] deprived at root of mystical discipline and experience. In this way ''creative art'' originated, and the mysteries became theatre, revelationary mantras became verses, hymns became songs, and revelationary ''pantomimic'' movements became dances...The pure revelation of gnosis had become more and more a game of the imagination and the power of magic had degenerated more and more into aesthetics. Richard Wagner understood this and wanted to remedy it. The work of Wagner followed the aim of the reintegration of art - to effect reunion with gnosis and mysticism so that it becomes 'Sacred Magic' again." [Taken from within the book by Tomberg].

''Sacred'' in relation to 'top/down' - ''Magic'' in relation to 'bottom/up', [i.e.,a potential to be realised]. Higher in relation to lower. The union of the two = a ''crossover'' point [or a 'connected-ness' of some description]. Always represented in whatever time-frame or culture [in part] as a u-turn. Anything?

Question. How would Wagner represent same - on a stage?

'Theo-Drama: Theological Dramatic Theory' by Hans Urs Von Balthasar.

Analogy of same?..."One day i entered a cinema house to view a newsreel of the European battlefields. The First World War was still being waged in the West; the news reel presented the carnage with such realism that i left the theater with a troubled heart. ''Lord'', i prayed, ''why dost thou permit such suffering?" To my intense surprise, an instant answer came in the form of a vision of the actual European battlefields. The scenes, filled with the dead and dying, far surpassed in ferocity any representation of the newsreel. ''Look intently!'' A gentle voice spoke to my inner consciousness. ''You will see that these scenes now being enacted in France are nothing but a play of chiaroscuro. They are the cosmic motion picture , as real and as unreal, as the theater newsreel you have just seen - a play within a play." My heart was still not comforted. The Divine Voice went on: "Creation is light and shadow both, else no picture is possible. [''Shadow/anima'' link? This readers input]. The good and evil of 'maya' must ever alternate in supremacy. If joy were ceaseless here in this world, would man ever desire another? Without suffering, he scarcely cares to recall that he has forsaken his eternal home [''fall'' link]. Pain is a prod to remembrance. The way of escape is through wisdom. The tragedy of death is unreal; those who shudder at it are like an ignorant actor who dies of freight on the stage when nothing more has been fired at him than a blank cartridge. My son's are children of light, they will not sleep forever in delusion." Although i had read scriptural accounts of maya, they had not given me the deep insight that came with personal visions and with the accompanying words of consolation. One's values are profoundly changed when he is finally convinced that creation is only a vast motion picture; and that not in it; but beyond it, lies his own reality." [Extract from the book on 'Paramahansa Yogananda' ].

Question. Has he seen to many 'Matrix' movies? Either way - besides looking up the those obvious 'highlighted' aspects - think about that final sentence in relation to Horus ''in/of'' the horizon. Begin in Part 1 - rather than leave - everything - to those first impressions.

Another example with the same intent; but now through research..."Drury's belief that the artist is a vehicle for; not a creator of, his artistic productions produced a desire to explore methods of charting the hidden sources of inspiration. 'The levels of inspiration achieved by different artists seems to me to parallel the stages of consciousness outlined in the Kabbalah, and for this reason, one of my main aspirations is to achieve greater rapport with the higher levels of my unconscious'. And so Skinner's need for scientific exactitude and Drury's desire to tap hidden levels of subconscious vitality combine in a common purpose. The first result of their cooperation appears in this far-ranging and highly readable book." Taken from the introduction to the book 'The Search for Abraxas']. Together with...

lefkandi

Lefkandi minotaur. FIRST known depiction of mythology in Greek sculpture.

"There is an animal in man, and there is a god in man. In order to produce a harmonised microcosm these aspects of our nature have to be firstly acknowledged: it is then that the self may be transformed. Perhaps the 'God' which best symbolises this 'mystical' venture is the one who is both a man and a hawk. He who is of the 'Sun' and whose legs are coiling serpents; symbol of wisdom reaching down to the earth. He who holds the sacred shield...and whose name is Abraxas." [ Final paragraph of the book by N. Drury and S. Skinner]. Together with...

"This book is about levels of consciousness, and Western man's pursuit of the Ultimate level. There are many doctrines and methods leading to this Reality. We deal here with less familiar paths leading to that exalted state of Being, which we have designated Abraxas, because we find it meaningful. There are many other names we could have chosen. [Prologue to same book]. A beginning and end.

As one OTHER example {that very first one?}: "The creation of Achilles shield is one of the most beautiful pieces of narrative in the Iliad, and, as Homer must have intended, it is not easily forgotten. The importance of the shield - which bears little resemblance to any shield ever used by earthly warriors - can be gauged from the 125 lines or so of narrative used to describe its features, but why the shield looked like it did is one of the epics mysteries. As with much else in the Iliad, an answer to this long standing mystery can be found in the heavens {authors hypothesis only}, and the need to create a new constellation in a previously undistinguished part of the sky to accommodate the return of 'brilliant' Sirius. There can be no better way to describe that area of sky by extended metaphor, using images not encountered elsewhere in the epic. Homer begins by associating the shape of the shield with the celestial sphere, upon which he places the Sun, the Moon, the Milky Way and a handful of stars - but NOT Canis Major, the eventual home of Achilles. He then goes on to describe wonderful decorations on the shield, including two warring cities, judges and disputing litigants, a wedding scene, reapers and binders, a vineyard and fallow land, cattle and lions, herdsmen, dogs and dancers. Not only has Homer identified the region of the sky in which the new constellation is to be created, but each scene of rural or town life is believed to describe separate parts of the sky which, when seen as a whole, encompasses the constellations now known as Canis Major, Canis Minor and Monoceros {i.e.,''another item of 'clothing' found in the sky is Achilles helmet, a group of stars in Monoceros, the modern constellation above the 'head' of Canis Major''}. Homer could not include these constellations in his opening remarks on the shield, for the shield had not yet been finished and the stars had not been described..." ['Homer's Secret Iliad']...

''Rural or town life'' in relation to : "In another vision i was a teenager living in France [South?], in a small village, and one day something special happened - there was a buzz of excitement in the village. The Floating City was coming! I knew this was my opportunity; i was stifled by the village atmosphere and, although i didn't want to stay on the Floating City, i knew that, if i could get aboard, i would be able to find out about - what ever it was i was looking for! I did get aboard - but i snapped out of the vision before anything else became clear.." [Enlarged elsewhere].

Question. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

Question 2. ''Rural'' {feet?} ''Town'' {head and 'shoulders'?}. as a means...? The main point being - those unknown quantities can be worked out - OR AT LEAST as close to an end result as is possible - when subject material in ALL ITS PARTS are taken into consideration.

baldricHence: "First Hephaestus shaped the shield so great and strong, adorning it all over and binding it round with a gleaming circuit of three layers; and the baldric was made of silver. He made the shield in five thicknesses, and with many a wonder did his cunning hand enrich it. He wrought the Earth, the heavens, and the sea; the Moon also at her full and the untiring Sun, with all the signs that glorify the face of Heaven - the Pleiads, the Hyads, huge Orion, and the Bear, which men also call the Wain and which turns round ever in one place, facing Orion, and alone never dips into the stream of Oceanus'...That these words refer to the skies is not disputed by scholars, but no definitive reason has ever been given for the more unusual phrases...

Side note: Moses who only 'saw the face of god' - while recalling that in order to complete {and therefore begin a journey} one has to 'emerge' into the ''stream of Oceanus''...Try ''Oxen''.

baldric2

"The way of the fool is no easy way, for it involves a balancing act, in which the Fool may stumble, and become a fool. It is a cunning way -  a way of strange knowledge. It is 'the Way that is Not a Way' - 'the Way that Cannot be Named' ..." ['The Zelator'].

Continued..."Our proposed interpretation is that the 'gleaming circuit of three layers; and the baldric - made of silver' are the Milky Way, whose three layers are the bright central section flanked on both sides by fainter bands of light. The silver baldric is a metaphor for the way in which the Milky Way encircles the Earth, just as a strap fastening to a shield goes round the body of a warrior {authors hypothesis only}. Homer sets the scene in the northern hemisphere by naming the Wain {or Plough} in Ursa Major, and by identifying Orion, the Hyades and the Pleiades he uses three well known groups of stars to determine the region of sky into which Sirius is to be placed. The Milky Way runs from top to bottom close to Canis Major, but the significance of the 'five thicknesses' is not yet clear...Homer then changes his mood, introducing scenes quite different from ANYTHING ELSE in the Iliad, using images of rural and town life as metaphors for individual stars, groups of brighter stars, dark parts of the sky with few stars, and also the Milky Way...Enlarged elsewhere. {'Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Recall what 'five' represents within this subject material {as a whole}.

baldric3And/or ''Clothing'' in relation to: "There's a great deal to be learned from these mediaeval images of the Fool. The mediaeval 'Feast of Fool' was of profound importance simply because it had esoteric overtones. Of course, you'll learn more about this, if we do a book together."...............'A book about the naked Mark Hedsel?'........He laughed. ''Partly naked - that is to say, a Fool, transformed by imagination.'' He emphasized the 'image' of the last word." [Extract from the prologue to the book 'The Zelator' by M. Hedsel].

Neolithic equivalent? " If the females in this category are all nude and at ease, the males are all dancing and either disguised in animal skins or part animal themselves. There are three in the French Pyrenean cave of Trois Freres. One has a bison's head, and plays a musical instrument in the middle of a herd of bison, and one has the horned head of some similar animal. The third is the famous ''Sorcerer'', a form with the head of a horned beast, the eyes of an owl or cat, the legs and body of a man, the tail of a horse or wolf and the genitals of male feline....Scholars have variously interpreted all these as gods or spirits, as priests or witch doctors, or as hunters disguised as animals to deceive their quarry. As with all the Palaeolithic images {archetypes?}, we lack the means to translate the artists message." ['The Pagan Religions of the Ancient British Isles'].

'Feast of the Tail' ?

Male/female = shadow/anima? OR is it animus? i.e.,from a female perspective in that Matriarch society that supposedly predated the Patriarchal one?

Side step: "Small figure found as part of grave goods on the island of Euboea {lefkandi}. Half man, half horse - the first known depiction of mythology in Greek sculpture. It begins the development of Greek art over the next few centuries. It combines geometric patterns with a passion for mythology...This fascination with patterns will lead Greece out of the Dark Ages." ['Treasuries of Ancient Greece'. Enlarged elsewhere].

"Its the first public sculpture in Britain - a large horse on an Oxfordshire hillside 3000 years ago. The hill - a border crossing - it was hotly contested {by at least three tribes}. Hill figures found no where else in Europe. This one marks a key moment in the development of British identity...The people who lived here were marking their lands with a tribal emblem / logo..." ['Seven Ages of Britain' . Mentioned elsewhere]. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

Question. Tribal only or subject material? IF subject material - which came first - landscape or subject AND why?

REfresher: "Some of the most interesting work upon Palaeolithic art has been that of Steven Mithen, who has regarded it as a store of information about animals that were difficult to find or to stalk. Thus, reindeer and most birds were portrayed relatively seldom because they were abundant and easy to kill. Some of the abstract designs, he suggests, are actually hoofprints, sometimes drawn in association with a picture of the animal to which they would belong... Likewise, the reason why animals are only partially portrayed {i.e.,in profile; therefore an aspect of something - i.e.,of the lower half?} - could be because a stalker would only partially see them: this would explain why horns and antlers in particular are often shown by themselves or oversized. Now, much of this argument is splendidly perceptive. But it does not explain why most of it has to be shown hidden deep in caves, nor why so much is geometric, nor why particular animals should be paired or superimposed..."

Refresher: The symbol of the lower will is the altar {'cave'?}.

Continued..."Scholars have always differed in their opinions as to the significance of this great body of work, for much of the present century there was a majority view that this art was an aid to 'hunting magic', i.e.,animals were represented in art and ceremonies performed around these figures to ensure of a successful hunt. Such a theory should not have survived the work of Peter Ucko and Andree Rosenfield, published in 1967. They pointed out that the animals represented in art did not really match the diet of the artists, as suggested by the bones left in their living sites. Thus reindeer and birds were often eaten but seldom painted or carved. Mammoths were rare at the time and place of the artists but were often painted. The beasts most often painted were bison {oxen?} and horses, which were certainly hunted but not in a quantity to justify such a predominance...nor does it explain why structures such as that at El Juyo {'religious cave sanctuary'} should have been made. The assumption that herds of horses and bison were scarcer than those of reindeer, and less easy to kill {en masse}, is not sufficiently confirmed by the evidence at an earlier period, i.e.,hunters had stampeded a total of 10,000 horses over a cliff at Solutre, in France. At this stage of research, it seems wisest to suggest that the people of the Palaeolithic produced art for at least as many different reasons as the hunter-gatherers of the modern world...We lack the means to translate the artists message." ['The Pagan Religions of the Ancient British Isles'].

rock

The Rock of Solutre. A limestone escarpment - surrounded by vineyards {S/E?}. Question. What aspect of the individual {'God'?} is represented by a ''vine''? Question 2. Why?

"The Palaeolithic site of Solutre and the escarpment which protects it from the N/W winds are located a few miles west of the modern city of Macon, at the southern gate of Burgundy where roads - and probably prehistoric trails as well - from the Paris Basin to the north, Belgian to the N/E, and Germany to the east, CONVERGE before entering the Saone-Rhone corridor toward the Mediterranean...From the time of its discovery to the present, the research at Solutre has paralleled the development of the field of Palaeolithic prehistory....The massive accumulation of horse bones to the side of the escarpment, and unique in the archaeological records has baffled both archeologists and the public alike.  "

As seen from a different perspective {that very first one?}: "We think the KEY that opened the door to all her following successes was found when her eyes was drawn to the region of the Bay of Pegasus, a large bay on the eastern side of mainland Greece to the North of the island Euboea, while studying a map. She took the bold but simple step of assuming that the bay, together with an ancient dried out lake and a pattern of towns to the north, was associated with the outline of the constellation of Pegasus...She then turned to the Catalogue of Ships. Of the region surrounding the Bay of Pegasus, Homer says the regiment of men came from..." ['Homer's Secret Iliad']. Enlarged elsewhere.

A side step?..."Every year, pilgrims from every part of Egypt streamed into Abydos for the Feast of Osiris to witness a sacred seven day mystery pageant, a re-enactment of the life, death and resurrection of the god. It climaxed with a great battle between Horus and Set, which Horus always won."[Page 5, 'Omm Sety's Egypt by Hanny el Zeini and Catherine Dees].

Osiris who was 'killed' by his brother Set on the banks of the Nile at Abydos. Who then took his 'Throne'. More importantly, indicative of Osiris not able to advance beyond that u-turn in a 'river'. Horus, however, has to, in order to 'avenge' his 'fathers' death. Once avenged, then he can 'unite'. Clue... 'Hamlets Mill' in relation to what was found at Dendera. As an example..."All of these sources and influences appear in various guises within al-Arabi's works [in relation to the different 'aspects' learnt from different 'cultures' but all relate to that overall subject] where they become grist to the mill of his own unique enunciation of a vision of the Oneness of Being." [Introduction, 'The Bezels of Wisdom'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"The festival culminated in a procession at the head of which was carried a huge image of the phallus, representing the lost organ of Osiris. This was preceded by a vase of water, symbolizing the 'fertilizing' moisture of the moon, which is 'both' Osiris and Isis. The bowl [or 'cauldron' and/or 'cup' etc,] and the phallus are the eternal symbols of regeneration...And so year by year, the mysteries were exposed, the bowl, which is Isis, Mother, vase of life, and the Phallus, which is the fertilizing power of Osiris - lost and found again. As these inanimate objects were solemnly carried in procession, they silently proclaimed the eternal verities which might be read and understood by those who had eyes to see. Through the truth that was thus ''shown forth,'' those who could understand might themselves partake in a new life which should be ever renewed like the life of the Ancient and Eternal Moon."[Chapter 13' of the book, by Esther Harding]. Try ''phallic.''

"To prick ones conscience."

Side note: Within the Step Pyramid; at its lowest level - within a pit - was found one solitary {complete} clay earthenware vase - after all the {broken?} bits and pieces {cups/bowls/vases?} were cleared.  Try ''cup''.

"The creative principle is the ideal phallus; the created principle is the formal cteis, {'womb' link}. The insertion of the vertical phallus into the horizontal cteis forms the stauros of the Gnostics, or the philosophical cross of the Masons. Thus the intersection [ 'crossover' point. This readers input] of the two produces four, which by its movement, defines the circle with all the degrees thereof." [Taken from the chapter entitled 'The Pillars of the Temple' from the book 'Transcendental Magic' by E. Levi. Emphasis, this readers]. Analogy using same principles but within a different time frame. From a different viewpoint, ['angle' symbolism], i.e.,''in profile'' as opposed to ''face on'' [Egyptian equivalent]. Don't forget those first impressions...i.e.,

three-and-a-half

'Sun' in the ''middle'' - 'Eight' in total {i.e.,'seven' in relation to the 'Self' }. See anything other than the obvious? Try ''three and a half''.

..."The vow of chastity means to say the putting into practice of the resolution to live accordingly to 'solar' law, without covetousness and without indifference. Because virtue is boring and vice is disgusting. But that which lives at the foundation of the heart is love. The heart lives only when it loves. It is then like the sun. And 'chastity' is the state of the human being in which the heart , having become solar, is the center of 'gravity'. In other words, chastity is the state of the human being where the center named in Eastern esotericism as the ''twelve petalled lotus'' is awakened and becomes the 'sun' of the microcosmic 'planetary system'..." [Taken from 'letter 5' of the book by Tomberg]. Understand those keys [highlighted] to define the parts within the whole, i.e.,...

"...having become 'solar', is the center of gravity." Like attracts like - including 'knowledge' - link to ''synchronicity''. It also defines the preoccupation [especially in those ancient days] of the earth [instead of the sun] - being at the center of the ''planetary system.'' i.e.,representation of something - other than the obvious....

"Sirius is sometimes called the 'Sun behind the sun', indicating that while the star we call the Sun is related to our physical center of Self in our Solar Plexus and the expression of our Selves within the physical earth, Sirius represents a more hidden center." ['Red Tree, White Tree'].

As seen from a different perspective: "Among the great initiate wisdom which has proceeded from China is the literature attached to the 'Book of Change', the I Ching...Among the basic 64 archetypal figures {images?} or hexagrams, is one which deals with inner truth. The Chinese character {image?} which denotes {represents?} 'truth' is an archaic picture of a bird resting its protective claws on the head of a newly hatched 'young'. The ancient sages pictured truth as a delicate thing, egg born, and in perpetual need of protection. On a deeper level the 'hexagram' deals with the consequences of 'love', for love itself is nothing more than the recognition in another person of the truth within his/her soul." ['The Zelator'. Includes italics only - with the exception of the word in bold print]. Try ''claw/s'' and/or ''young/est'' then finally ''hexagram''.

A different take: "And so for thousands of years the geocentric view of the universe was never questioned. Aristotle and others thought of these things in detail. They noticed that when they dropped things they fell to the earth - the center of the earth - so there must have been something special about the center - it must be the center of the universe. These arguments were so persuasive that it was millennia before they were overturned." ['Human Universe' / narrated by B. Cox]. Try ''mandala'' for a different take on the same theme {principle?}.

"...the development of human consciousness was the result of spiritual and not {at first} of physical changes in man..." [from the book by C. Merry].

Question. When ALL the available information is TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT - what do you think?

"In relation to the term 'world' it is necessary to understand from the very outset that there are many 'worlds', and that we live in not one world, but in several worlds. This is not really understood because in ordinary language the term 'world' is generally used in the singular. And if the plural 'worlds' is used it is merely to emphasis, as it were, the same idea, or to express the idea of various worlds existing parallel to one another. Our language does not have the idea of worlds contained one within another. And yet the idea that we live in different worlds precisely implies worlds contained one within another to which we stand in different relations." ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

Understanding that universal constant 'bit' {Micro} within that framework {Macro} makes sense of the above. As does...

"But where can man [or woman] find truth? If he seeks deep enough in himself he will find it revealed, each man may know his own heart. He may send a ray of his intelligence into the depths of his soul and search its bottom, he may find it to be as infinitely deep as the sky above his head. He may find corals and pearls, or watch the monsters of the deep. If his thought is steady and unwavering, he may enter the innermost sanctuary of his own temple and see the goddess unveiled. Not every one can penetrate the depths, because the thought is easily led astray; but the strong and persistent searcher will penetrate veil after veil, until at the inner most center it discovers the germ of truth, which, awakened to consciousness, will grow into a sun that illuminates the whole of the interior world, wherein everything is contained." [quote from within the book by F. Hartman]. Try ''midnight sun''.

A side step: "It has been said that death came into existence only with the rise of mans consciousness, a round about way of saying death is more real for humans than for any other animal, because only humans foresee it. Religions owe their existence to the unique ability of the human animal to understand that it must die. Against this realization the forces of imagination are mustered to deny it. Its hard for any perceiving mind to perceive its own not being, with cessation of all perception. Worshipers of Kali managed to view the beyond death state as, 'Dreamless sleep'. But most ancient people could not formulate an idea of non - perception.".........."Babylonian literature reveals a hope that eventually the right ritual cure for death will be discovered, rather as modern people hope for a cure for cancer. The Recommended avenue of investigation [in those days] was necromantic consultation with the dead themselves. The quest for immortality was essentially the search for the right ritual, ['repetitive' link]...the knowledge of what to do in order to secure a continued existence of the 'body' after death. This knowledge is possessed by the ancestors, and can only be obtained from them." [Page 214, 'The Woman's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets' by Barbara Walker].

These days that information can be got by research, the objective analysis of which, results in ''knowledge''.

A working example, i.e.,by way of an objective exercise: "He also became a mathematical geographer and while a lecturer at the university of Louvain, became a close friend of Mercator, with whose name we are still familiar in Mercator's projection, which is a convention used in map making to depict a spherical world on a flat piece of paper. Indeed Dee brought back with him to Mercator's globes...What we are seeing is the first attempt of modern mankind to conceptualize the world as a physical celestial object. To do this, man had to stand out of the world, so to speak  {objective?}, and view it as if an observer in space, from the background of the stars, almost indeed as if he were himself a 'star' being. So these mathematical geographers of the time were the first modern ''planetary men''. This marked a great step forward in human self consciousness, and John Dee was at the forefront."

"I journeyed with this man for one and a half days over an uninhabited, stony plain until we came to a little hill on which grew bushes and trees. Here, my guide ['Aaron'] informed me, i would 'connect' with my man. I asked my guide to go on, but he refused, turned around with his mule...and for some unknown reason left me. I knew of no other way of getting help and advice than to submit to the ultimate help and cried out his high name. He quickly heard me, because as i lifted my eyes, i saw an old man approaching. His friendly greeting was in the Chaldaic language, he asked me to 'follow' him. In this event i recognized the high foresight of god ['Adonai'] . Very politely he lead me into the place where he 'lived'. There i learned his name - Abramelin - and in time also the foundation and structure of wisdom."

As is {unbeknown by author}..."Everywhere around Harran are sites associated with stories from the book of Genesis. On Cudi Dag {Mount al-Judi}, in the mountains to the east of Harran, Noah's 'ark' is said to have made first landfall after the 'waters' of the great flood receded. Here too Noah established his first post-flood settlement, leaving his son Shem to continue his journey into the Eastern Taurus mountains, where also Seth, the 'son of' Adam, lived after his father and mother's expulsion from the 'garden' of Eden. Even Harran itself, where Abraham dwelled with his family, had more ancient biblical connections, as tradition insists that Cainan, a 'grandson' {i.e.,''triple'' link} of Shem, 'founded' the city. He was the originator of Chaldaism, the knowledge of the 'stars' as practiced by the Sabaeans of Harran." [From the book 'Gobekli-tepe' by A. Collins. All emphasis, this readers].

They take their rise in the mountains to the north east of Harran. Here somewhere lies the original Garden of Eden, tended over by the angels of god, returning me to the pressing questions that had preoccupied my childhood: Who or what are angels? Where did they come from, and did they have some kind of earthly tangibility? As i climbed Harran's giant occupational mound, which rises above the ruined city, and stared out towards the mesmeric Astronomical Tower, i felt i was getting closer to some real answers. For even as the first bible stories were being played out across the region, Harran was already extremely old...Known as Tell Idris...being an Arabic name for antediluvian patriarch Enoch, the great grandfather of Noah...accredited with the authorship of one of the strangest and most mystifying religious texts ever written.

The scope of consciousness will be so broadened that all personality 'fragments', personality images, and individual 'fragments' in succeeding incarnations will be held in clear focus [repetitive, of the positive over the negative link. This readers input]... without strain. It is toward this that evolution is headed, though of course, at its usual donkey - slow rate." [ Page 24/5, 'The Seth Material'].

"The relation between body and soul, and all together between the spirit of things and their corporeality, may be expressed by the example of a rider on horse back. A rider who is in control and guides his steed can go much further than he can go on foot. How aptly then does the image of the Messiah as a poor man riding on a donkey describe the human predicament; the divine spark borne and guiding, the physical donkey, bearing up and waiting for guidance and 'power'."[Chapter three 'The Thirteen Petalled Rose. Mentioned elsewhere].

Or..."Swedenborg had finally found the soul. His anatomical work was unnecessary. The soul is the life, the spirit, the inner of mans experience. The quality of this life is the quality of the man. Swedenborg rejected airy, abstract ideas of the soul that are not experienced." [Chapter 4, 'The Presence of Other Worlds'].

A {working?} example in the 'Micro' sense of the 'word': "Possibility is one thing, and the realization of the possibility is quite a different thing. Let us now try to see what this possibility depends upon and what its realization means.' Then G. repeated briefly all that had been said before about the 'structure' of man and the world. He drew the diagram of the ray {key} of creation and the diagram of the four {key} bodies of man. But in relation to the four bodies of man he introduced a detail which he had not mentioned before. He again used the Eastern comparison of man with a 'carriage', a 'horse', a 'driver', and 'master' {''teacher'' link} - and drew the diagram with one addition that was not there before. 'Man is a complex organization,' he said, 'consisting of four parts which may be connected or unconnected, or badly connected. The carriage is connected with the horse by shafts, the horse is connected to the driver by reins, and the driver is connected to the master by the master's voice. But the driver must hear and understand the master's voice. He must know how to drive and the horse must be trained to obey the reins. As to the relation between the horse and the carriage, the horse must be properly harnessed. Thus there are three 'connections' between the four sections of this complex organization. If something is lacking in one of the connections, the 'organization' cannot act as a single whole. ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

"Read not to contradict and confute; nor to believe and take for granted; nor to find talk and discourse; but to weigh and consider." ['Of Studies' 1625. / F. Bacon].

"Since one incarnation on earth cannot possibly be sufficient, the personalty must return again and again in order to achieve the maximum development." [Introduction 'Alchemists Handbook' by F. Albertus]. Question. 'Seven' in relation to 'eight' ?

Refresher..."Got to see it, rather than just read it..." John Humphrys talking to D. Tennant and Greg Doran in relation to the plays by W. Shakespeare. [400th anniversary. Radio 4. 23/04/16].

"A beggarly union of genius and fire.'' Quote by Albert the 'great' - teacher of Thomas Aquinas. Recall the meaning of 'genius' in the east as opposed to its counterpart in the west. ''Beggarly'' in relation to say a - 'fool'. Anything?

All the above a link to the meaning [and difference] to ''incarnation'' relative to ''reincarnation'' and its purported relevance to each individual. Find it to understand it - rather than leave to those first impressions. Question. One big 'magical' fairy story?

A {working?} example ,i.e.,when all the above is applied to the following: "These are 'higher' states of consciousness that open onto new horizons of understanding and wisdom. You may have had such an experience as children when we were less weighed down by the things that now preoccupy us. You may even have fallen for the illusion that those times of bliss and wonder are gone forever along with the other delights of childhood. But that is not the case. We are meant to dwell permanently in this habitat of the soul where higher consciousness dwells. It is possible to taste and live this joy and freedom, this inner awakening, even during rush hour, even at the office, even when circumstances around you are difficult." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way'].

Follow the title of the book to see how that 'working method' is represented within the subject as a whole.

Analogy of same {as an exercise?} - in the abstract sense of the 'word': "For i was scarcely fallen asleep, when i thought that i, together with an innumerable multitude of men, lay fettered with great chains in a dark dungeon, in which, without the least glimpse of light, we swarmed like bees one over the other...But although neither i nor any of the rest could see one jot, yet i continually heard one heaving himself above another, when his chains and fetters had become ever so slightly lighter...Now when i with the rest had continued a good while in this affliction, and each was still reproaching the other with his blindness and captivity, at length we heard many 'trumpets' sounding together and kettle drums beating...During this noise the cover of the dungeon was lifted up 'from above', and a little light let down to us...We all went pall-mell, and he who perchance had heaved himself up to much, was forced down again under the others feet. In brief, each one strove to be uppermost. Neither did i linger, but with my weighty fetters slipped up from under the rest, and then heaved myself upon a stone, which i laid hold of...I was caught several times by others, for whom yet as well as i might, i still guarded myself with hands and feet. For we imagined no other but that we should all be set liberty, which yet fell out quite otherwise. For after the 'nobles' who looked upon us 'from above' through the hole had recreated themselves a while, with our struggling and lamenting, a certain hoary-headed ancient man called us to be quite, and began to speak thus: If the poor human race were not so arrogant it would have been given much good from my mothers heritage. But because the human race will not take heed it lies in such straits and must be held in prison. And yet my dearest mother will not regard their mischief; she leaves her lovely gifts that many a man might come to the light, though this may be by chance and seldom...Therefore in honour of the feast which we shall hold today, that her grace may be multiplied; a good work will she do: the rope will now be lowered, whoever may hang on to it, he shall be freed." [Extract from the book 'Alchemical Amphitheatre'. Mentioned elsewhere - in relation to a ''wedding''. All emphasis and italics - this readers input].

Question. Can you 'see' - as an exercise only - what all those different keys [archetypes?] represent? To determine the validity [or not] of a 'subject' - OR 'dream' sequence? Among others try ''rope'' and ''feast'' to add or detract from.

Exercise: "But because the human race..." in relation to "Troy was thus strategically placed to control trade through the fast flowing narrows that separate Europe from the East and connect the Black Sea to the Aegean. Perhaps to enforce the collection of tolls, Troy would have required military power and in turn would have been subject to the envy and resentment of other powers. Other suggested sources of the city's wealth have included a thriving fishing industry and horse breeding, the later perhaps explaining Homer's epithet of ''tamer of horses'' for Hector of Troy. Such a city would have been known throughout the Aegean and beyond, wherever traders discussed their deals and bemoaned whatever tolls may have been levied by the Trojans; and wherever sailors complained about the time they wasted lying at anchor waiting for a favorable wind to help them through the straits." ['Homer's Secret Iliad' / F. and K. Wood].

That ''fall' {Macro?} that becomes the beginning of something {Micro?}. As does...

All the above explained by nothing more than common research by way of objectivity together with the proverbial...pinch of salt. Objectivity over subjectivity, that arrives at an understanding of those main keys, [symbols]...that expresses that common framework in 'picture' form. To be unraveled / encrypted by the reader. That objectivity that 'enlightens' the reader to the underlying core essence of all ‘religions’. Its ’esoteric’ side. What some of these authors refer to as ‘head knowledge'. The theoretical side. Its practical application being the ‘subjectivity’ aspect to it, i.e., If ‘B’ exists then to apply that theory / understanding in order to get to ‘C’. Which has that certain logic to it, i.e., application of that now ‘aware knowledge’. As a side note, some believe that the practical [subjective] side can be 'experienced' while in 'A'. Commonly known within this subject as an 'out of body' experience. [See Mr Monroe's or Celia Green books].

Question. 'Glass Ship' link?

Monroe; was someone who accidently experienced same in the normal course of daily events as many individuals seem to do - if the literature on {same} is to be believed. The only difference is - unlike most - rather than ignore or hide from it - he 'sought' the same experience in order to evaluate it - to understand it.

'The Saint With Two Bodies'. From chapter 3, of the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'.

This author cannot comment on same, simply because this authors prime aim is to understand the subject for its own sake. Nothing more. Simply to satisfy a curiosity. To satisfy something that was once an unknown. Something that this reader was at one time, ignorant of. The way this reader sees it, if 'B' does exist [and after weighing up all the available evidence, it will not surprise this reader if such an 'event' does turn out to be true], then because of that understanding , that understanding of a subject, that awareness should help in any 'adjustments' needed. For this reader no 'real time' experience is wanted or wished for. Should 'B' exist we will have all the time 'in the world', for such 'experiences'. The 'Ghost train' [ as an imaginary teaser] will suffice till then. [No pun intended].

Those benefits however of understanding the subject through objectivity. Rather than leaving all to those first impressions. Regardless of whether the ‘practical’ side will ever become relevant are...

A...Its satisfies a curiosity.

B...You begin to see what a so called ‘esoteric’ collection looks like. Notice the diversity of subjects. For a more detailed and in depth 'list' see Mr J. Blacks, 'Selective Bibliography' at the later end of his book 'The Secret History of the World'. A very informed reader, which his personnel notes, and descriptions, together with 'eureka' moments of same, bear out. This reader, is as yet to find a more extensive one. The author R. A. Wilson defines the same in the Macro sense of the ''word'' within the title of the book 'The Cosmic Trigger' and in 'its' Micro sense as a ''blinding flash'' and/or ''mini-Satori''. N.B. T. S. Eliot refers to the same, as ''a timeless moment.'' [Chapter one, 'The Zelator']. The ancient Egyptians referred to it as ''intelligence of the heart.'' The author Teilhard de Chardin defines the same [in part] within the word 'Reflexion.' Enlarged elsewhere. The aftermath of which becomes intuition.

Analogy of same,i.e.,with the same intent is the word Dasein as used by Henry Corbin of Sufi fame as explained by T. Cheetham within the book 'The World Turned Inside Out': "Dasein is, literally translated as 'being there'. It provides the condition for the possibility of anything being present at all...He stresses that the da of Dasein is the 'act of presence'. " What T. Cheetham defines as the 'Psychology of Presence'. [Chapter 7]. See it?

And/or "...THE revelation by which the Hidden Treasure reveals itself to itself." [Same book]. Try ''treasure''.

Such authors as Francisco de Osuna {mentioned elsewhere} defines that same process and/or action of the mind with the ''path of recollection''.

Plotinus describes it as ''a knowing principle''. Enlarged elsewhere.

Alchemy's equivalent of same..."Think of the whole six month Alchemical course and notice the first thing that comes to mind where you had a ''aha'' or ''umm...fascinating!" feeling. Associate fully inside yourself and your memory of that event so that you may recall what you saw and heard when you felt that feeling. Was it something you read, observed, thought about later, something someone said that clicked with an alchemical idea? An image in the course of a book?" [Extract taken from the final chapter entitled 'The Hall of Alchemical Memory' from the book 'Alchemical Amphitheatre' by M. Katz].

"An image in the course of a book..." That ''image'' could be landscapes equivalent of same principle, i.e., the HA HA lawn. Get it? Explained elsewhere.

Analogy of same..."When your consciousness has been thoroughly prepared to experience this truth, the direct perception will unfold naturally in your awareness. This can be related to the ''aha!'' moment when what you have been contemplating {or studying} makes perfect sense, because you experience the truth of it from within. The truth moves from concept to reality." [From the book by R. Kurczak. Emphasis etc, this readers].

Hence the link to such statements as 'Samadhi' being equated with "cognitive absorption,'' {see ''cognitive'' in Part 1} - i.e.,"This first chapter is entitled 'The Chapter on Samadhi, or cognitive absorption'. The word 'Yoga' in this sutra {i.e., sutras of Patanjali} refers to the state of Samadhi. Yoga means to unite or yoke together. Samadhi is a state of consciousness in which awareness results in an elevated state of consciousness often referred to as spiritual." [Same book].

"The nature of the Stone is central to our dilemma as students of the esoteric tradition; it is both quest and destination, both ourselves and other, tool and product, it is the eye that observes and cannot see itself, knowing itself through exhaustion of all possibilities through experiment, [and/or study. This readers input]. It is indeed, the mystery of awareness." [M. Katz book]. AS IS...

"Our Stone is the quintessence of the Four Elements, separated from them and reduced into a fifth essence - being extracted out of the body of the first matter."

''Stone'' in relation to 'Primordial mound' - both in relation to a 'learning curve'. Representational of.

That one sentence defines - what in number symbolism - is represented with the numbers - 4 / 5 / and 19. Can you 'see' it yet? Enlarged elsewhere.

Understand the above to define the following: "Albert was a rock hound. He collected specimens from sites of evacuations or mines he came across in his travels and catalogued their properties. In his work 'De Mineralibus' {The Book of Minerals}, he mentioned alchemy again and said it was ''a beggarly union of genius and fire''. Thomas Aquinas, Albert's student, concurred with Albert's conclusions: alchemists could probably make 'gold' but it was ''a difficult art''. ['The Chemistry of Alchemy'].  'See' anything, i.e.,all three authors are hinting at something that is NOT represented as the obvious - on first read. That includes the author of the above book.

C...If the subject does attain main stream status and becomes part of the curriculum then a qualification can be attained and added to the normal list.

"For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened." New Testament.

"We must first consider the difference between the evaluation of a course of study and its assessment. The evaluation of a curriculum in the secular sense is the process by which the 'nature and desirability' of a course is given 'value or worth'; but to define the extent to which a course is 'workable and effective' requires a form - or forms - of assessment. These forms of assessment create the basis for the evaluation of the effectiveness of a course in meeting the intended aim specified by those who create the course, understood by those teaching it, and received by those learning." [Extract from the book 'The Magister'].

The ''READERS Way'' works just as well as any other 'way' - the results of which should bring about a positive assessment for the subject as a whole - as proven - if any of those ''proofs'' are verified. Yes or No?

Dream_Caused_by_the_Flight_of_a_Bumblebee_around_a_Pomegrana

Painting by Salvador Dali. ''Dream caused by the flight of a Bumblebee around a Pomegranate, a second before awakening.'' The humble bee. One of this subjects key symbols. Egypt especially. Found within many a Royal Cartouche. A direct link to Kingship, of which, according to myth; Herod failed in. [ Bees by R. Steiner and especially The Sacred Bee {in ancient times and folklore} by Hilda Ransome]. Question. Where have you seen a similar representation that includes the elephant? Question two. What does it represent? Clue. Why is the ''cube'' no longer there? Or is it in another 'form'. What does that represent? Why should anything be represented at all?

D...While ‘studying’. There is the possibility of paying off the mortgage, and/or {if within a school curriculum} - the wine gum; milky bar; crisp; choc - biscuit; marshmallow and [lastly?] the immortal - Jammie Dodgers - slate clean. Oop's sorry; forgot the Cokes and Pepsi's - sugar free of course - right boys and girls? i.e., theres still more tombs to be found. Herod is one. Akhenaten another, [explained elsewhere]. Are all the Persian / Assyrian kings found? What about other cultures? Especially those that relate to ‘Kingship’. Question. As an example. Some say that Herod... " Stole the throne like a fox, ruled like a tiger, died like a dog". Where would the 'authorities' legitimate or otherwise, bury someone whom they believed did not fulfill the requirements of Kingship? His Sarcophagus was found. His body was not. [National Geographic. 'Herod's lost Tomb'], i.e.,where would a 'dog' be buried?

The author of 'The Synchronicity Key' [unbeknown to same] gives clues within his well researched book of same. Enlarged elsewhere.

"The child of Osiris and Nephthys is Anubis, the Jackal - headed god. A fit symbol when we remember that the home of the Jackal is the desert edge and his hunting grounds are the fertile lands where man and their leavings abound." [Quote from within the book, 'The Forgotten Mage'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"I came to the gate, where some dozen or so devils were playing tennis...in their hands they held rackets of fire; but what amazed me still more was that, books, apparently full of wind and rubbish, served them for tennis balls, a strange and marvelous thing." [Chapter 70, 'Don Quixote' by M . Cervantes]. Try ''strange'' in the usual box.

"Caph. - To change into gold not only all metals but also the earth itself, and even refuse of the earth." [Taken from the introduction to the book 'Transcendental Magic' by E. Levi.

"The terrors of death are the daughters of ignorance, and death herself is only hideous by reason of the rubbish which covers her, and the sombre hues with which her images are surrounded." [same book]. Other clues - elsewhere.

A {working?} example: "Whether our master had in mind an intentional symbolism in this request to clear out the upper room, we shall never know. We had realized some considerable time ago that the main impediment to our spiritual development lay in our untrained thinking, as much as in the accumulation of debris in our minds..." ['The Zelator'].

Analogy?..."We are thinking at the edge, where the shoreline of sense meets the wild ocean of mystery." [From the book by T. Freke and P. Gandy]

E... Finally. Last but not least. If B/C do exist. Then because of that understanding of a subject we will have an idea of what to expect and whats expected. Wont we. If only in the sense of a possible 'purpose' and 'direction'. Think about it.

"The chiefest cause, to read good books, that moves each studious mind, is hope, some pleasure sweet therein, or profit good to find. Now what delight can greater be, than secrets for to know, of Sacred Bees, the Muses Birds, all of which this book doth show." [Charles Butler, 'The Feminine Monarchie,' 1609 . Extract taken from the inset pages of the book, 'The Sacred Bee']. Think on it, relative to what ''food'' represents... in this subject.

Another book {of secrets?} that attempts to define something: "Separate thou the 'earth' from the fire, the subtle from the gross sweetly with great industry. It ascends from the earth to the heaven and again it descends to the earth and receives the force of things 'superior' and 'inferior'. By this means you shall have the glory {''grace''?} of the whole world and thereby all obscurity shall 'fly' from you..."['Emerald Tablet'].

Follow the title of the book.

Question. ''Fly'' in relation to karma?

"The Muses remind us that all scholarship, even science, is closely allied to the nature of art - perhaps science is especially allied with art because, above all other disciplines, it reveals to us the living beauty of the natural world and the laws upon which it is based. But so much in modern scholarship is artless - and dare we say - lifeless, that we would do well to invoke, not only the Muses, but also there companions, the Graces. By invoking the Muses within the context of modern scholarship we not only recall our roots, but we also affirm the important role of higher inspiration, in the search for authentic knowledge." [Introduction, 'Alexandria: The Journal of the Western Cosmological Traditions' by D. Fideler. Vol. One].

Analogy - in the modern sense of the 'word' - could be - 'Way of Seeing' by J. Berger.

N.B. Enki [of Sumerian fame] was identified with sweet water. ['Symbols of Sacred Science'].

Greek analogy?...- 'zoe' seeks sweetness and finds an intensification in it."

Refresher: "Separate thou the 'earth' from the fire, the subtle from the gross sweetly with great industry. It ascends from the earth to the heaven and again it descends to the earth and receives the force of things 'superior' and 'inferior'. By this means you shall have the glory {''grace''?} of the whole world and thereby all obscurity shall 'fly' from you..."['Emerald Tablet'].

the horn

Al-Qurn = The 'horn'. Anything?

In Egyptian mythology, Meretseger (also spelt Mertseger), meaning "she who loves silence" exerted great authority during the New Kingdom era over the Theban Necropolis and was considered to be both a dangerous and merciful goddess.[1] She was closely connected with al-Qurn, the pyramid-shaped peak in the Valley of the Kings.[2] As a cobra-goddess she is sometimes associated with Hathor.[3]

She was the patron deity of the workers in Deir el-Medina who built the tombs. She punished workers who committed crimes, but healed those who repented. In one instance Meretseger is petitioned to bring relief to one in pain. She answered the prayer by bringing "sweet breezes." [4]

SIDE NOTE: {and/or refresher}: "The 'sun' is its father, the 'moon' its mother, the wind hath carried it in its belly, the earth is its nurse." Emerald Tablet.

Question. Shadow and/or anima related? i.e.,if so, what would 'bitter' be represented by?

Celtic analogy: "Every day the Goddess Ceridwen was supposed to gather various charm-bearing herbs {fifteen?} for her Cauldron, the ''sweet Awen'' - choosing her time according to the planetary positions. Taliesin gives a long list of these plants and other ingredients, but it is not clear from the poem {Cadeir Taliesin} whether all of these were brewed in the ''stream of Gwion'' as the liquor was sometimes called. There are red berries, cresses, wort, and vervain; and a plant called selago which is supposed to be the hedge hyssop. But in Nash's translation the latter is not mentione, but only the ''tree of pure gold''. This tree of pure gold is the ''golden bough'' of Virgil's AEneid - the mistletoe. Selago, is however, mentioned by Pliny, and the passage is quoted in the 'Antiquities of Cornwall' {S/W?} - telling how the selago is a most precious ritual herb '...''which must not be touched by the hand NOR cut with iron''...The {'gathering'} of the mistletoe was also a sacred ceremony..." ['The Flaming Door' - from the chapter entitled 'The Cauldron of Ceridwen'].

Try ''herb/al'' and/or ''mistletoe'' and/or ''gathering'' etc.

Question: ''which must not be touched by the hand NOR cut with iron.'' Why? Can u 'see' it? i.e.,something of that inner ''quality'' not outer. Try ''taboo'' and/or ''quality''.

"In Sumero-Akkadian mythology, the Tigris and Euphrates were said to take there rise from a primordial water source, a subterranean lake that was the source of all 'sweet water' called Abzu {Apsu}, which came under the patronage of Enki." [From the book 'Gobekli-tepe' by A. Collins].

Primordial 'fountain' in relation to primordial 'mound'. Bingol mountain = ''the summit of the earth, its waters carrying the 'four rivers to the four corners of the world'." [Same book]. On top of that mountain... ''glacial lakes that grace its summit. In the Armenian language, Bingol Mountain is known as Biurakn, which means 'A million eyes', a reference once again, to the countless springs, or 'eyes' that take there rise on its summit..."

'Waters of the Gap'. Anything?

Question. To what ''corners'' do the above TWO rivers represent? Clue. Top/down or Bottom/up? ONLY one or the other relates to the word ''sweet''. That same link to the 'Mona Lisa' painting/picture. Enlarged elsewhere.

Understanding this subject solves the 'riddle' set by Samson,i.e.,"What is sweeter than honey, what is stronger than a lion?" [i.e.,knowledge - by way of 'Gnosis' i.e., what it implies,i.e.,getting ones head around it]. After all... ''is 'power' not knowledge?" Same principle as in the Gordian 'knot' riddle. That inner one, i.e.,the true meaning of the word ''esoteric.'' Check it out.

Different culture. Same principle...''You search for savor in various foods - in tea, coffee, Coca-Cola, puddings. You go to restaurants and night clubs. What do you actually get? In search for joy, you yourself become joyless. Your face shrivels; your money gets spent. In place of joy you get disease. Your life passes by. Cooking and tasting all kinds of delicacies, you destroy your own sense of taste. Even the sweetness that was already there disappears. You do not find the real, joyful, pure, and precious nectar that is in your heart." [Chapter one, 'Play of Consciousness'. Mentioned elsewhere. Put those 'keys' together]. Failing that try ''bee'' in the usual box - in relation to curiosity. Benefit of. AND if this subject proves something more than a mental exercise - PURPOSE OF.

A work in progress {that very first one?}: "A study to discover the astronomical role of the smith god Hephaestus led down a path with a surprising end. Every reference to the great artificer was studied, and, by using techniques similar to those used for other interpretations, an astronomical image of the constellation of Perseus emerged. It was also apparent that, in addition to his role as 'creator' of the constellations, Hephaestus had a further role of previously unsuspected importance: 'Then Hephaestus drew sweet nectar from the mixing 'bowl', and served it around among the gods, going from left to right; and the blessed gods laughed out a loud applause as they saw him bustling about the heavenly mansion...But when the sun's glorious light had faded, they went home to bed, each in his own abode, which 'lame' Hephaestus had fashioned for them...The constellations in the southern hemisphere were built by Hephaestus, when he was flung down from Olympus to Lemnos: 'He {Zeus} caught me by the foot and flung me from the heavenly 'threshold'...Eurynome and Thetis, take me to their 'bosom'...There in the realms of Thetis and her home in the constellation Eridanus 'below' the horizon, he stayed for 'nine' years, creating the southern constellations...It is as creator of the glittering armour of Achilles that he is best known...['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

"Gnosis, according to al-Arabi, is not the acquired knowing of profane learning, but rather as the Arabic root suggests, an immediate recognition and grasp not of something new or strange but rather of the state and status of things as they really are, have always been, and eternally will be, which knowledge is inborn in man but later covered over and obscured by the spiritual ignorance encouraged by preoccupation with ephemeral and partial data. It is precisely this gnosis, which is potential in all human kind." [ Chapter 2, 'The Bezels of Wisdom']. 'See' it? A link to the ''minds eye''. Benefit of. Purpose of.

Side note: ''partial data'' - One could also say - 'partial rubbish'. Try ''Herod''.

"Tender-hearted stroke a nettle, And it stings you for your pains. Grasp it like a man of mettle, and it soft as silk remain." ['Paradoxes of the Infinite' / B. Bolzano].

"If there be in mathematics a nettle danger out of which has been plucked the flower safety - it is speculation on O and the {infinite symbol}." Same book. Try ''plant'' and ''flower'' to attempt to grasp what this author is implying.

The ’last’ of anything. A link to the word ‘penile’. That same link to the tail end of something, [see dictionary]. Most important in the conscious sense...as opposed to its twin ‘brother’ or other ‘half’...the normal ‘tail end’ of something. ’Behind’ in relation to ‘in front of’. Shadow as opposed to light. Unconscious of...In relation to, now conscious of,[relative to a 'realization' - an understanding]. By way of a determination, [‘fire’]...A focus...[Hebrew equivalent = "By strength" i.e., one of the two pillars, [of which on top was a pomegranate]. Common parlance..."A Baptism of fire" or even "to take the bull by the horns.". [key]. Represented by the 'horns of consecration'..."a well known Altar emblem, derived from Minoan Crete".[Chapter three 'Riddle of the Sphinx'] ...hence the link to Alexander. Explained elsewhere].

"Spirit or ''fire'' is an immaterial, formless, and universal element, which may become manifest in forms. It is the matrix in which everything was contained before it was thrown into objectivity by the awakening of its will. It is the ''creator'' the great ''carpenter'' of the universe, the ''stepfather of Christ''..." [Quote from the book by F. Hartman]. Understanding that 'universal framework' defines that possibility. Can you see it yet?

"The word 'spiritual' should be associated with the word 'eyes'. This is a reference to the eyes of the mind or heart. To see is to understand." [From the book by T. Nottingham].

Then to apply. In order to get to that final destination. An inner’ destination’...within the ’outer’ one. Both those key words, [Tail/Fire]...within the pagan upright phallic symbol. In ‘pillar’ form. Its earliest representation. That one ‘pillar’ that became through an ‘understanding’ two. Both ‘supported’ by those earlier ‘formed’ foundations, by way of thought/emotion/will, i.e., the 'middle' way. Don't forget those first 'impressions', i.e.,not in the crude form. Not even close. Even when taking into account such authors and 'participants' as A. Crowley. 'The Old Sod'. Mentioned within, gives; if only for this reader; an insight into Mr Crowleys true nature, by someone who knew from both a personnel and 'professional' point of view. More circus clown [i.e.,trickster character] than adept. Try ''phallus.''

continued..."Energy is the Sacramental Motive of the Event: it is thus omnipresent, in manifestation by interruption and compensation and otherwise by the corresponding withdrawal..." [Extract from the book 'Little Essays Towards Truth' from the chapter entitled 'Energy' by A. Crowley].

The author using the word 'simple' within the first chapter of the same book in order to define those basic principles - in order to {attempt} - to make them cohesive and therefore intelligible for the reader, i.e., "...discovering thus the common nature of certain things and the essential differences between others, so that ultimately one obtains a simple view of the incalculably vast complexity of the universe." For this reader the book is anything and everything but : - plenty of ''head knowledge'' which Crowley is well known for but presented in his own convoluted {inimitable?} way - as is his very own interpretation on the word 'Magic{K}'. Basically such individuals ''believe'' they can 'circumvent' {'jump-start'?} certain levels {'altered states'} along their own individual path - towards that ultimate goal. They ''believe'' they can 'transcend' certain stages along the way by harnessing those energy levels; especially those {intimate?} ones. In other words {some may say crudely} - they GENUINELY believe they can shag there way to heavens door. In short; they are {possibly?} well and truly - to far gone - up there own tantric sexual backsides.

sex

Same PRINCIPLE - different culture. Find IT to understand IT. Rather than being taught {'shadow'?} - by those FIRST impressions.

The last thing this reader would want on his mind at such a ''moment'' {and/or 'pre' and 'post'} is anything and everything to do with this subject - especially if it only {and/or 'primary'?} includes that objective 'desire' {clause?}. That SOLELY personal one. A good example of ''objectivities'' negative flip {twin} side. If only for this reader.

Question. Could it really be that SIMPLE? In other words IF this subject is a valid one, i.e.,if its core essence proves true, i.e., that life really does continue in all its forms: then there can only be two possibilities as to its 'origins' {mentioned elsewhere} i.e.,simply put - either by evolution, i.e.,as part of the big bang inflation theory - not yet identified or by design - what ever that implies. The main point however is - if it was by design {while remembering that this question is purely hypothetical - possibilities only -} would the ''designers'' have in mind such a ludicrous one, i.e.,the 'copulation way' - the slow but steady {bang, bang?} as you go way? That {selfless?} design, with genuine intent and purpose ; for the sake {we are told} for the benefit of humankind.

Question. Could they be stupid? OR could they think we are?

"To prick ones conscience."

Apply it to define the following - "When we talk of 'sexualisation' of the vegetable world it is necessary to be clear as to the precise meaning of the term. It is not a question of the actual phenomenon of the fertilization of plants but of a qualitative 'morphological' classification, which is the culmination and expression of an experience of 'mystical' sympathy with the world. It is the 'idea' of life which, projected on to the cosmos, sexualizes it. It is not a matter of making objective or scientific observations but of arriving at an appraisal of the world around us in terms of 'life', and in terms of anthropocosmic destiny, embracing sexuality, fecundity, death and rebirth. Not that men in primitive societies were incapable of objectively observing the life of plants. The proof of this is the discovery of the artificial fertilization and grafting of date trees and fig trees in Mesopotamia. These processes had long been known, for at least two paragraphs of the Hammurabi Code legislate on this point. This practical knowledge was afterwards handed down to the Hebrews and Arabs. But the artificial fertilization of fruit trees was not looked upon as a horticultural technique, efficient in itself, but as a ritual; the fact that it involved vegetable fertility implied man's 'sexual' participation." ['The Forge and the Crucible' /  M. Eliade]. Try ''vegetative'' and/or ''fig'' . Finally ''mustard'' - to {distinguish?} something further.

'The Practical Handbook of Plant Alchemy' / Manfred M. Junius.

continued..."We are dealing here therefore with a general conception of cosmic reality seen as Life and consequently endowed with sex; sexuality being a particular sign of all living reality. Starting from a certain cultural level, the entire world - the world of nature as well as the world of things and tools made by man - is presented as endowed with sex. The examples which follow have been expressly selected from different cultural milieux so as to show how widespread and persistent such conceptions are. The Kitara divided ores into male and female; the former, hard and black, are found near the surface; the latter, soft and red, are extracted from inside the mine. The mingling of the two 'sexes' is indispensable to fruitful fusion. This is of course an objectively arbitrary classification. But it was the total union of reality which mattered, for it justified the rite {'Sacred' act?} namely the 'marriage of the metals', and this last made possible a birth." [Same book, i.e.,by M. Eliade]. Try ''flint'' and ''pit/mine'' to see if you agree/disagree.

'Metal of the mind'?

A side step. Remember what it was that the 'trickster character' stole. Together with..."Promethus, who brought 'fire' to mankind, was a Titan whose name means foresight." Think about it in relation to 'hindsight'. Try Part 1.

"Serious mysteries may be describable only in terms of paradox, or in what passes for jest."

Practical {reality?} example of such - if only for this reader - in relation to all of the above mentioned...A quote by Steve Backshall within the recent {13/3/16} program 'Extreme Mountain Challenge' . After the main leading climber falls 50 feet - S.B. says something along the lines of: 'That must have been quite an experience' to which the reply was: 'Yes; it felt like an organism'. To which the answer {in jest} was - 'Then you must be doing one of those two things wrong!'

Question {in jest or otherwise}. Which one?

Alternative viewpoint?..."Yes, diet is important in the Satyagraha movement - as everywhere else," he said with a chuckle. "Because i advocate complete continence for satyagrahis, i am always trying to find out the best diet for the celibate. One must conquer the palate before he can control the procreative instinct. Semi-starvation or unbalanced diets are not the answer. After overcoming the inward greed for food, a satyagrahi must continue to follow a rational vegetarian diet with all necessary vitamins, minerals, calories, and so forth. By inward and outward wisdom in regard to eating, the satyagrahi's sexual fluid is easily turned into vital energy for the whole body {and/or mind. This readers input]." [Quote by Gandhi from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi].

As is..."Promethus, who brought 'fire' to mankind, was a Titan whose name means foresight. So be prepared for the consequences of your actions. You will need somewhere to place the burned out match. Let a discrete and adequate receptacle be provided. Simply to cast it aside is an expression of dis-order. A working for the lords of mis-rule, the evidence of whose presence is all about you in the world. It is perhaps only the lack of intention {i.e.,unconscious act} that prevents their engulfing the world in a sea of rubbish, of forgotten litter discarded by childish and immature spirits." [Extract from the book by G. Knight. Most of the emphasis, this readers]. Try ''Taboo'' {in relation to a 'sacred act' }. Then try ''rubbish'' - for a more practical read, i.e.,a 'location' of something - a possible one.

The above a good example of the 'ritual stuff'. In the above example- in relation to that ''spirit/fire,'' i.e., as an expression of something; an expression that can be thought {expected?} about, in ones daily routine. All relevant to those words {principles?} in relation to that acclaimed framework. Micro within the Macro? The main point however is - that the understanding of such material {literature?} gives the reader {that objective; studious one} - an INSIGHT into the subject as a WHOLE. And like ANY other subject - the more ones learns {keys?symbols?archetypes?} the more one understands the parts within the whole - regardless of what subdivision - within the subject as a whole {i.e.,esotericism} - those universal keys are got.

'To prick ones conscience'.

A {working?} example..."We had two more specific ceremonies to perform before returning to Uxmal and Merida. But first, there were two processes that needed to happen in order for us to prepare ourselves...These two ''processes'' were to be very much like ceremonies, but were, in fact, probably more akin to modern day therapy. Each member of this group came to the Yucatan with internal emotional disturbances associated with their sexual energies. This is true with almost every person alive. In a nutshell, the sexual chakra, the heart chakra, and the pineal chakra, in the 'center' of the head, all function together as one when they are aligned. Lack of alignment causes emotional disturbances, and emotional disturbances causes lack of alignment. These disturbances would have to be balanced in our group before the last two ceremonies could be completed or we would not be able to finish our work." ['Serpent of Light Beyond 2012'].

Same principle - but easier on the brain {mind?}: "Sun, Moon and stars {as three examples} were, to the leaders and teachers of the ancient peoples, not merely physical, but 'pictures' of the hidden and the divine. Misunderstanding of the myths would cease once it were universally recognised that, outside the Mystery Temples {schools?}, only the language and imagery of ordinary life could be used to describe the realities of spiritual experience obtained in the 'holy of holies'." ['The Flaming Door' / C. Merry. Parenthesis, this readers].

on awakening

One second AFTER awakening? Question. Why does she look disappointed? Notice also the tail end of each. In both 'snap shots.' [Represented by the word ''second,'' and the symbolic intention of the firearm]. See it? Notice also the two front legs of the ''elephant.'' Through the ''heads'' of the pictures two main characters. Left in relation to ''female'' aspect. Also Pomegranate above water line, female aspect below it. West in relation to East. Anything? OR South - North perspective? Don't forget those first impressions, i.e.,first parts a joke. Finally try ''intention'' to understand its MAIN AIM. IF ONLY IN DEFINING SUBJECT MATERIAL.

Every subject can represent that framework. Hence the reason to its multiple interpretations by different authors explaining the same thing in their own way. Including the subject of sex. That subject that is no more represented than with two individuals; in the main; male and female. [represented / symbolic of 'shadow' ; 'anima' ]. An interest in each other, that can develop over time, into a deeper interest, and that deeper intention, that is represented with the sex act. That final act of a union of two 'opposing' souls, that through an understanding, become 'united', ['divine couple' link]. What better subject to represent those key words. Words like 'heart'[love] / 'intention' / male / female aspects, to name but a few. The word phallic used to represent a 'focus' [and/or 'fulcrum'] by way of a 'fire' that 'bridges' those male/female aspects, ['Sacred marriage'], to find an 'equilibrium,' [all key words, in understanding the 'whole']. As a representation of something, outside of the obvious.

'The Book of Lies' by A. Crowley.

"The pillars of Jakim and Boaz measured the pulse of the cosmos. They were so placed as to mark the furthest points of the suns risings of the equinoxes, and according to the first century Jewish historian Josephus and Clement, the first bishop of Alexandria, they were topped with 'orreries,' mechanical representations of the motions of the planets. Decorative, carved pomegranates are mentioned several times in the biblical account. The robes of the priests were decorated with precious stones representing the 'sun', the 'moon', the 'planets' and the 'constellations' - emerald being the only stone named. The most extraordinary feature of the temple seems to have been a 'sea' - or according to the Quran, a 'fountain' - of 'molten brass.' Again, as with the 'bronze' serpent nailed to a 'pole' by Moses, this image of 'smelting' should alert us to the presence of secret practices dedicated to 'transforming' human physiology." ['Secret History of the World'].

Side note: "An intriguing incident in Ares life that has not yet succumbed to astronomical interpretation is when he was bound 'in cruel bonds, so that he lay thirteen months imprisoned in a vessel of bronze'. The text may be implying that for a period of just over a year Mars could not be seen, because it was below the horizon at night and in the sky during daylight hours." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Continued...."Two independent - minded Masonic researchers, Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas, have worked out this orientation, [i.e.,relative to Solomon's temple,i.e.,S/E or S/W? Answer found in chapter 23], starting with the clue that Hiram came from Phoenicia, where the principle deity was Astarte - or Venus. Of course this ties in too, with the decorative details, already mentioned, the pomegranates which are the 'fruit' of Venus and 'emeralds' which are the precious 'stones' of Venus. According to Clement of Alexandria, the curtain which sectioned off the Holy of Holies had cut into it the shape of a five - pointed star. The five - pointed star has always been a symbol of Venus, because the pattern that Venus traces around the ecliptic in its eight year cycle - five appearances in the morning sky and five in the evening sky - forms a five pointed pattern. It is the only planet to draw a completely regular figure in this way. This figure is seen sometimes as a pentagram, sometimes as a five pointed star, and sometimes, as we shall see when we come to investigate Rosicrucianism, as a five - petalled flower or rose." [Chapter 12, 'The Secret History of the World'].

"...answer found in chapter twenty three." Coincidence or a meaningful one?

N.B. {Analogy?}...'Liber Astarte': 4 = 7; Philosophus grade; Equilibrium link to the House of Venus???

Analogy with same principle in mind: "...above the rose, sealing the vessel, which is a ''soul with no leak at the seams,'' is a crown. The crown - which is a triple crown - signifies Kether, the top of the tree. It bears a single pearl in its apex; 'the pearl of great price'...." [Extract from the book 'The Magister' ].

Question. Can you put together all that 'information', offered in the form of 'symbols' that represent the understanding of certain 'aspects' within a subject? In this case, the understanding of that ''orientation'' that once understood gives clues as to a start and end point. Representational of. The answer also explains as to why it had to be chosen as someones final resting place - as to WHY that specific location {'start point'} - was chosen.

'Asherah [or Astarte or Ashtoreth]: History's Vanquished Goddess' [Gods Wife: the Goddess Asherah, Wife of Yahweh]. By Darlene Kosnik. Question. ''Youngest'' aspect, as mentioned in part one?

"Sophia was also an important mythical figure for Jewish gnostics, such as Philo. Although later rejected by Jewish Literalists, there had always been a Jewish Goddess tradition. At one time Israelites had worshiped the Goddess Asherah as Jehovahs consort. In the 5th century {BC} she was known as Anat Jahu." [From the book by T. Freke and P. Gandy].

"...and Astarte and Ashtoreth are the Phoenician and Hebrew forms of the Babylonian goddess Ishtar. Mr Hislop remarks that it is generally admitted that the last syllable, ''tart'' of the Phoenician ''Ashtart'' is derived from the Hebrew 'tr',- ''to go round, surround or encompass''; the masculine 'tor' being used for a border or row of jewels around the head. Hence as ''Asha'' is woman, Ashtart and Ashtoreth would mean ''the woman who encompasses,'' alluding to her surrounding cities with walls and towers. This is further confirmed by the fact that Ashtarte, like Diana and Rhea, is depicted as standing on a lion, with a turreted crown, while Diana was called ''Tauropolos'', from 'tor', a tower..." ['The Worship of the Dead or the Origin of Pagan Idolatry and its Bearing Upon the Early History of Egypt and Babylonia' / J. Garnier]. Among others try ''tower''.

Refresher: "A round stone is a symbol of the Self...The lions a royal couple, are in themselves a symbol of totality {'16' ?}.  In medieval symbolism, the ''philosopher's stone'' {a pre-eminent symbol of man's wholeness} is represented as a pair of lions or as a human couple riding on lions. Symbolically, this points to the fact that often the urge toward individuation appears in a veiled form, hidden in the overwhelming passion one may feel for another person. {In fact, passion that goes beyond the natural measure of love ultimately aims at the mystery of becoming whole, and this is why one feels, when one has fallen passionately in love, that becoming one with the other person is the only worthwhile goal of one's life}. As long as the image of totality in this dream expresses itself in the form of a pair of lions , it is still contained in such overwhelming passion.  But when lion and lioness have turned into some king and queen, the urge to individuate has reached the level of conscious realization, and can now be understood by the ego as being the real goal of life."  ['Man and His Symbols' / C. Jung].

Question. Has Jehovah {Yahweh?} been seen stood/riding on a 'lion' ?

"Ishtar is the Mesopotamian East Semitic { Akkadian, Assyrian and Babylonian} goddess of fertility, love, war, sex, and power. She is the counterpart to the earlier attested Sumerian Inanna, and the cognate for the later attested Northwest Semitic Aramean goddess Astarte..." {Wiki/Ishtar].

The one word that has not been used in the above 'statement' = ''vegetative'' - its most important in order to define 'something'...

"In the absence of a native Israelite visual art - either because the second commandment was interpreted as vetoing all images, or because of a lack of talent, or both - the entire scheme of decoration, too, was Phoenician in character. Hiram dispatched bronze and gold for the purpose; and the two giant cherubim of gold plated olive wood, whose wings roofed the Ark in the Holy of Holies, resembled the fantastic composite figures found at Byblus and Megiddo, which displayed a human head and a lions body and wings of a bird, and were sacred to Ashtoteth." [Chapter 8, 'The History of Ancient Israel' by M. Grant]. Link to other ''imaginative'' ['mystical'?] forms such as the Sphinx; the Griffin and Unicorn. Find them to understand them - rather than evaluate; only on first impressions.

Akeldama.

A resting place for a 'stranger'. Potters Field? Question. If anything is found - who would have been responsible - Hebrews or Christians OR the collective effort? Question 2. What would that imply? Universal knowledge common to all? In other words 'BROTHERS and SISTERS' regardless of religions?

A more detailed account [in relation to the overall subject] will be found - 'Woman's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern' by M. Esther Harding. Within chapter 10 are clues not only to the above but information on why such historical figures [such as Herod] are used within this same subject; or more importantly; what they represent, [in the above example that would be ''wasteland'']. Proving once again [if and when this subject; goes mainstream] - the viability of the material that becomes the ''head of the corner'' that defines this subjects 'foundations' ['framework'].

Question. 'Head of the serpent' ?

For a further head scratch - put ''stranger'' in the usual box.

"I know now that my teacher is the holy man who gave the wise warning. I humbly made this confession to my father. 'Oh, if i could only find him!' My longing was sincere, for one day the saint arrived unheralded. 'Enough of tiger taming.' He spoke with calm assurance. 'Come with me; i will teach you to subdue the beasts of ignorance in jungles of the human mind.' I was initiated into the spiritual path by my saintly guru. He opened my soul doors, rusty and resistant with long disuse. Hand in hand, we soon set out for my training in the Himalayas." [Extract from the chapter entitled the 'The Tiger Swami' from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Try ''unhinged'' in relation to ''hinged''.

For a further head scratch - why ''unheralded?''

"Many years ago the English psychologist, F. W. H. Meyes, suggested that - ''hidden in the depth of our being is a rubbish heap as well as a treasure house''.

"...beasts of ignorance'' in relation to 'the beast that rises in the east'. Anything? S/E or S/W?

Somewhere outside old jerusalam.

Somewhere outside ancient Jerusalem. In Roman times some say it became a rubbish heap; fires forever burning. Others say; it was just a fable; a myth; past down through the course of generations. Question. Why? Could they not think up a better one?

"So, in my appeal to the most worthy, and in exposing myself to all the dangers and anathemas which threaten revealers, i believe myself to have done a great and useful thing, directing the breath of 'god' living in humanity ['divine bit' link. This readers input], upon the social chaos, and priests and kings for the world to come. A thing is not just because god wills it, but god wills it because it is just, said the angel of the schools. It is as if he said: The absolute is reason. Reason is self existent; it is because it is, and not because we suppose it. It is, or nothing is; and how should one desire anything to exist apart from reason? Madness itself does not occur without it. Reason is necessity, is law, is the rule of all liberty and the direction of all initiative. If god exists, it is by reason. The conception of an absolute god outside or independent of reason - is the idol of black magic and the phantom of the fiend. The demon is death masquerading in the tattered garments of life, the spectre of Hirrenkesept throned upon the rubbish of ruined civilizations, and concealing a loathsome nakedness..." [ Taken from the book by E. Levi].

N.B. Some say Herod himself became 'mad'.

"Madness lies in fixity of thought, and not in fluidity." [Quote from within the book 'Where is Saint George'].

"...So of our thoughts, when it has decided to make the leap."

"...in order to 'see' rightly one has to look rightly. And to look rightly means to endeavour to see through the mists of the phantoms of things." [Quotes from within the book by Tomberg].

"The 'antichrist' being the phantom of the whole of mankind; the being engendered through the whole historical evolution of humanity. He is the ''superman'' [Friedrich Nietzsche link] who haunts the consciousness of all those who seek to elevate themselves through their own effort - without grace." [Same book]. Try ''grace''.

"Solomon lost his divinely bestowed power after becoming besotted with a foreign [stranger?] woman. He was told by the priests of 'her land' that he could not 'sleep' with her until he had made a sacrifice to the god Moloch. This he did and subsequently committed further idolatry by building temples to two other gods, Baal and Rapha. The testament of Solomon ends with Solomon saying he wrote down his account for the benefit of others who might be inspired and aided by his knowledge, but warned off the path by his own ultimate downfall - 'So that you may find grace forever and ever." [Chapter one, 'Grimoires: A History of 'Magic' Books' by O. Davies]. Solomon who was found dead after a 'gnat' ate through his 'staff'.

"Gnawing = The act of a person or thing that gnaws. To waste or wear away; corrode; erode..."

"An act of divine 'magic' - or grace - is necessary to accomplish the infusion of life into that which is 'dead'." [Extract from the book by Tomberg].

Remember - no less than Solomon; one of the main [patriarchs?] - characters of the Old Testament. Someone who took a ''turn for the worse''. Proving that regardless of what ones first impressions are [of say a subject?] a certain light shines through. In other words the subject has sincerity and depth to it - including - in the moral sense. No matter what status or position any individual may attain - those basic principles still apply. Those eternal ones. Represented [in this subject] with the 'skulls cap' as seen with [as examples] Ptah and Imhotep. Positive has to succeed over negative over a period of time - day by day. Otherwise no 'grace' is achieved. Top down in relation to bottom up.

Back to the beginning...

"This valley was admittedly a horrible place; it started out as a location were children were sacrificed to the owl-god Moloch. Over time, the ritual murders stopped and Gehenna became the main garbage dump for the entire city. Dead bodies and all types of filth were routinely burned there. Gehenna was therefore a necessary place for cleansing and purifying the land through 'fire'. This appears to be the deeper meaning of the metaphor Jehoshua was using. The third definition of the word Gehenna in the 'World English Dictionary' is 'a place or state of pain and torment'...Many people still refer to karma as something you have to 'burn off,' and this appears to be a direct continuation of the symbolism used by Jehoshua..."

Side note. ''burn off'' relative to 'fire' relative to 'altar' relative to S/W?

"...However, Paul never once mentioned Hell in any of his letters. The only possible exception in some Bible translations is where Paul is quoted as saying that Jehoshua triumphed over Hell in 1 Corinthians 15:55, but here, the Greeks word translates as ''the grave." This is the same word that is mistranslated in the Old Testament as ''Hell'' and was originally written as sheol." [Extract from the book ' The Synchronicity Key' by D. Wilcock].

Recall what '15' represents and/or the 'triple' of any number and/or the 'power' of same, i.e.,in the above example that would be 125...

herodium"In the famous judgement scene, called the Psychostasia, {i.e.,illustration of the chapter 125 of the Book of the Coming Forth into Day} - the deceased is brought forward, either by Maat or by Anubis, {i.e.,jackal / dog}. The scale is surmounted by Maat, justice: on one of its pans is the heart of the deceased, and Maat's feather on the other. The human passions must not weigh to heavily, nor must the appetites {expressed by the Ka} re-attract to strongly, or it may be that the female monster, the 'Devourer', would gobble up the deceased, who anxiously waits the judgement to be rendered by Thoth..." [Extract from the book 'Egyptian Mysteries']. Anything? Can you 'weigh up' all that information to 'see' something.

"The joy of good conscious is the accord between the moral rhythms of the 'lower' and 'higher' self. The beatitude [Matthew v,8] promising those who have a pure heart that they will 'see' god - signifies the accordance of their basic rhythm with the 'divine' rhythm. Joy is therefore the state of harmony of the inner/outer rhythms - of rhythm below with that of above..." [Extract from the book by Tomberg].

Try ''pure'' to 'see' it in the alchemy 'sense of the word'.

"They thought in terms of spiritual essences or ideals, and 'spirits' are hard to pin down..." ['The Chemistry of Alchemy'].

As one example: "To understand Sendivogius's method for isolating saltpeter, we must first understand what is meant by ''salt''. The term salt is used to describe a host of chemical compounds that resemble and behave like regular table salt, which is sodium Chloride, NaCI. A salt is usually white {'pure' link} and crystalline, although it can be different colours such as our friend copper{II} sulfate, which is blue. Salts are often soluble in water, but some salts are more soluble than others. In 'Discourse of Fire and Salt' - Blaisede Vigenere {1523-1596} stated that ''[saltpeter] is made of - fire and salt - the first because it burns, and the second because it dissolves in water."   [Same book]. All as a means...?

"The 'good life' is a process. The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination. The good life constitutes a direction selected by the total organism, when there is psychological freedom to move in ANY direction." [Taken from Part three, 'on matters of existence' from the book, 'Striking Thoughts' { Bruce Lee's Wisdom for Daily Living} by J. Little.

Analogy of same?..."When Dr Ian Jones asked me how i dealt with the visions without the aid of medication, i replied: ' I just fire bullets of logic at them as they come zooming towards me and give them no credence; then i flick them away as if they are annoying, buzzing mosquito's." [Extract from the book by Q. S. Lam].

Bees in relation to gnats in order to define something - in order to understand something - relative to the bigger picture? Knowledge after all is power. True, untrue? A help or a hindrance?

"I tried to ask him why he liked me, he couldn't give me an answer and then he said, ''Go away Fred, go and fly away like a helicopter." My son paused before continuing, ''Fred is in the forest with his Mummy. His Mummy is good but Fred is bad and he has a baby in his tummy - a baby caterpillar." I told him that Fred had planted a worm in my head, to which my son replied, ''Yes, Fred has planted hundreds of caterpillars in my head, too...We need to lock him up in a cupboard with a key and make him very small. Look, this is how small we have to make him,'' he said making a tiny triangle with his hand. ''Go and make caterpillars on the sun Fred and not in my head or Mummies head." My son doesn't appear to be afraid of Fred. He's even suggested that we eat Fred in one of my tofu noodle soups. I said i would prefer to eat him on toast with lots of butter, but that actually it would be better not to eat Fred at all because he probably wouldn't taste very nice. Is talking about Fred the right approach? Is it even age appropriate? I don't know, but what is the alternative - to buckle under the strain of Fred's rants? I have tried to explain very complicated mental health issues in an imaginative, simple and honest way that my son will understand. He has even suggested hitting Fred in the face with his neon green ball until he's dead. I told him that was not the way and that maybe we had to make Fred our friend, since i don't think he had many. My son looked at me and i could tell he almost felt sorry for Fred. Could i keep him at bay through these stories? Just about. If i continued like this, Fred might just put down his sticks, and stop pummelling the walls of my mind." The author ,i.e.,Q. S. Lam, then writes a poem entitled...'Is There Light'...

According to this subject there is, i.e.,..

"From ancient times the butterfly, psyche, has signified not only the mystery of physical metamorphoses, but also the loveliest transmutations of the soul...All over the world the gossamer beauty of the butterfly, its winged nature and breathtaking release from a pupal cocoon have symbolized the soul reborn out of chrysalis like containment...Like an alchemical 'vas', the chrysalis is both the ''golden'' [ chryseos] vessel of transformation and the object transformed...it gives no outward sign of the concealed unfolding within as the old forms, dissolve and the embryonic tissue is restructured. The butterfly is one of our most poetic images of psyche's self renewal beyond even traumatic endings...The Greek myth of Eros and Psyche tells the story of passion, doubt and separation between the soul and her beloved and the tortuous process that precedes there reunion. This drama is enacted in ourselves in countless ways, as libido pursues the objects of psyche's desire, ways that can be poignantly self-destructive as well as redolent of promise." [Extract from the book 'The Book of Symbols: Reflections of Archetypal Images' by Taschen].

"This little man, the size of a thumb, is the 'Ishon' of the Hermetic and Old Testament texts. The man the size of a thumb, resides in the midst, within the self, of the past and future....the Tom thumb of fairy tales, this inner dwarf or 'Ishon' which is prepared to 'reveal' things that are normally hidden......is meant to symbolize an esoteric aspect of Spiritual development....the fool has to learn from the 'smaller' inner man....It is worth bearing in mind that, in materialistic terms, the inner man must be smaller than the outer man. This inner man is linked with the spine, which in itself is linked with the staff...This symbolism applies to the staves in the hands of the Tarot Fool: one staff is the spine of the outer fool, the other that of the inner fool." [Bibliographic notes to chapters 4, and 7, of the book 'The Zelator']. Agree or disagree?

'Swamplands of the Soul: New Life in Dismal Places' by J. Hollis.

"There is a thought, a recurrent fantasy perhaps, that the purpose of life is to achieve happiness. After all, even the Constitution of the United States promises ''life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Who does not long to arrive, some distant day at that sunlit meadow where, untroubled, we may rest easy, abide awhile and be happy? But nature or fate, or the gods, has another thought which keeps interrupting this fantasy. The split, the discrepancy between what we long for and what we suffer as limitation, has haunted the Western imagination...

...The litany arising from the gap between hope and experience is endless. Whether to suffer it stoically, react heroically or whine about one's condition seems onerous yet unavoidable choice. But Jungian psychology, and the disciplined practice of personal growth it promotes, offers another perspective based on the assumption that the goal of life is not happiness but meaning....

....We may well experience moments of happiness, but they are ephemeral and can neither be willed into being nor perpetuated by hope. Rather, Jungian psychology, as well as much of the rich religious and mythological tradition from which it draws many of its insights, avers that it is the swamplands of the soul, the savannas of suffering, that provide the context for the stimulation and the attainment of meaning. As far back as 2500 years ago, Aeschylus observed that the gods have ordained a solemn degree, that through suffering we come to wisdom. Without the suffering, which seems the epiphenomenal requisite for psychological and spiritual maturation, one would remain unconscious, infantile and dependent...

...An old saying has it that religion is for those who are afraid of going to hell; spirituality is for those who have been there...It is in the swamplands where soul is fashioned and forged, where we encounter not only the gravitas of life, but its purpose, its dignity and its deepest meaning...Psychology was the last of the so-called social sciences to evolve, as Jung noted, because its raison d'etre was theretofore sustained by the great myths and myth-making institutions. Psyche is the Greek word for ''soul'' and etymologically had twin roots: one the butterfly whose mysterious, beautiful, but elusive permutations metaphorically dramatize our experience of soul; and the other, from the verb ''to breath,'' is an analog of that invisible wind which enters at birth and departs at death. How ironic, then, that modern psychology so often addresses only the behaviors which can be observed and converted to statistical models, or cognitions which can be reprogrammed, or biochemical anomalies which may be medicated. While all of these treatment modalities are significant and helpful, they seldom address the most profound need of the modern; namely, to render one's journey meaningful."

Confirmation? by yet another..."Sri Yukteswar's health was excellent; i never saw him unwell. To show respect for a worldly custom he permitted his students, if they so wished, to consult doctors. ''Physicians,'' he said, ''should carry on their work of healing through 'gods' laws as applied to matter.'' But he extolled the superiority of mental therapy, and often repeated: ''Wisdom is the greatest cleanser."... He numbered many doctors among his disciples. ''Those who have studied physiology should go further and investigate the science of the soul," he told them. "A subtle spiritual structure is hidden just behind the bodily mechanism."

A more {practical?} analogy..."From Hermopolis, city of Hermes {Thoth}, master of Writing, Numbers, Measurement and Time, comes the description of the Nun, the primordial environment, picturing 'its' qualities and characteristics: 'He {the Demiurge} created the 'eight'. He formed its body as that of a sacred child who issues forth from a lotus in the middle of the Nun.' The primordial Eight, as envisaged at Hermopolis {the Ogdoad}, together form, as the text indicates, a single entity. The Nun is envisaged as a swampy mire, a seething primal cradle in which live four couples of serpents and frogs...[Extract from the book 'Egyptian Mysteries' by L. Lamy].

Question. Can you by now put those keys together to define something while recalling what symbol represents that stage of {a learning process?} that results in ''wisdom'' - and WHY?

N.B. Hermes = Transition {stretching?} ones boundaries. Thoth = God of balance/equilibrium. Both attributes {aspects} intermix to define an end result, {mechanics of}. The process {qualities?} needed to achieve that end. Representational of. Question. Agree or disagree?

A work in progress {the very first one?}: "When seen in the evening sky, Mercury is represented by Hermes, the swift messenger of the gods and the guardian of travellers. It is in the latter role that he has his moment of prominence in Book 24 of the Iliad. Hector has been killed...Traditionally, Hermes is also a thief and trickster - attributes recalled by Homer when the god is called upon in vain to steal Hector's body from Achilles so that it can be returned to his father, King Priam...The god can only take him part of the way...The sequence is: Priam leaves Ursa Major, and is taken across the zodiac by Hermes {Mercury} before meeting Achilles in Canis Major. After paying a ransom for Hectors body, Priam is urged to return home by Hermes while it is still 'dark'. The first hurdle Priam meets on his outward journey is the zodiac, where Hermes is instructed by Zeus, 'It is you who are most suited to escort men on their way - go and so conduct Priam to the ships of the Greeks'. As a planet, Hermes cannot move outside the boundaries of the zodiac, and after crossing the zodiacal band {'girdle'?} he takes his leave of Priam when he says: 'I will now leave you, and will not enter into the presence of Achilles'. Although it would not be possible to see Mercury both in the evening and the morning in the course of one night, Homer seems to reinforce the position of the planet in the zodiac when Priam, returning home, is once again met by Hermes and is escorted to the topmost boundary of the zodiac, from where Priam has to continue his journey without the gods help." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Planets {versus?} constellations as a means...?

The real question however remains the same. Why go to ALL this fcking effort? {Excuse the Greek}.

Refresher..."This little man, the size of a thumb, is the 'Ishon' of the Hermetic and Old Testament texts. The man the size of a thumb, resides in the midst, within the self, of the past and future....the Tom thumb of fairy tales, this inner dwarf or 'Ishon' which is prepared to 'reveal' things that are normally hidden......is meant to symbolize an esoteric aspect of Spiritual development....the fool has to learn from the 'smaller' inner man....It is worth bearing in mind that, in materialistic terms, the inner man must be smaller than the outer man. This inner man is linked with the spine, which in itself is linked with the staff...This symbolism applies to the staves in the hands of the Tarot Fool: one staff is the spine of the outer fool, the other that of the inner fool." [Bibliographic notes to chapters 4, and 7, of the book 'The Zelator']. Anything? Question. Agree or disagree?

"To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven."

"The Freemasonic scholar Albert Pike called the picture of Solomons Temple...'an abridged image of the cosmos'. Think on it, relative to the ''individual'' i.e.,.....

"Ancient Greek philosophers among them Heron of Alexandria, who studied with Egypt's priests in the 2nd century, suggested that the soul possessed an innate universal knowledge that exterior objects awakened through the senses. This concept resembles Jung's idea of a collective unconscious that is accessed through sensory experience and that speaks primary through the emotions. The ancient Greek root word for 'symbol' meant ''something that is thrown across,'' like a bridge between sacred and profane worlds, or between inner and outer realities. Symbols provides 'nets' of meaning [omphalos link]. The mind synthesizes impressions gleaned from an image as the warp threads and connects them by emotional responses as the weft threads. Based in intuition, the symbol erects a scaffolding of related impressions, implied ideas, analogies and resonances. Within this synthesis, we grasp the whole, simultaneous existence of all things in motion, appearing together for a brief, but eternal and absolute moment." [ Part three entitled 'The Light Within' from the book ' Dreams of Isis' by N. Ellis]. Try ''pattern''.

''Grasp'' in relation to 'Manifested'.

A working {practical?} example..."Before we arrived, not even knowing why we were coming to Hovenweep {remember, we originally intended to build the medicine wheel at Chaco Canyon}, Mary had written a poem in honor of our journey. She says that it came to her all in one piece, and she simply wrote it down. As we gathered together in a giant kiva-unroofed, but so deep that we had to climb down into it by ladder - she read us  this poem: 'The Weaving' - ''We stand here, surrounded by the sacred mountains, at the sipapu, where our world began. We come from the four corners of this earth...We are here to create a weaving of a new reality. In any weaving, beauty is created by the warp, weft, and the pattern. We bring: for the foundation, the warp thread...These we braid together and string on our loom to form the warp, the shape of our weaving. Onto this we weave the weft of our daily journey, the thread of beauty, spun, one moment at a time, with each step of integrity, as our actions spin time into history. And the pattern? The pattern that will call the rest of the human race into understanding... " [From the book 'Serpent of Light Beyond 2012' / D. Melchizedek]. Try ''pattern'' in relation to defining something {logos?}.

Understanding the above gives a closer assessment of such sacred objects as the Inca Khipus.

"Nature is a net of correspondence to be deciphered and integrated into a holistic {whole?} worldview." [extract from the book 'The Magister'. Parenthesis, this readers].

N.B. The root of the word ''holy'' = whole. Anything? i.e.,a reunion of the ''whole?''

... ''eternal and absolute moment,'' what T. S. Eliot defines as a 'timeless moment' and others as a eureka moment. Question. What symbol is used to define that 'action of the mind,' and why? Question two. Why should it be necessary to explain it at all?

"The no-mans land between Physics and the psychology of the Unconscious [is] the most fascinating yet the darkest hunting ground of our times." Carl Jung.

"Psychology and esotericism set out to explore the darkness outside of our knowledge, whether it be dwelling in the 'unconscious' or the 'astral', the mundus imaginalis, or the dark side of the Tree of Life." [Extract from the book 'The Magister']. Define ''astral'' before those first impressions define something else. Link that answer up to that universal framework.

"Let him who seeks, continue seeking until he finds. When he finds he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled he will be astonished, and he will rule over all." [ The 'Nazarene' from, The Gospel of Thomas].

"...the 'nails' of objectivity - which give conscience to thought."

The symbol of which is the Crown of Thorns, i.e.,"The 'thorns' of the crown center function as the 'nails' of objectivity..." [Taken from 'letter 5' from within the book by Tomberg].

Before those first impressions take hold; remember that Christ himself also understood the same subject by way of - the same method?

"In his right hand he held seven stars, and from his mouth came a sharp, two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining with full force. When i saw him, i fell at his feet as though dead. But he placed his right hand on me, saying: 'Do not be afraid, i am the first and last, and the living one. I was dead, and see, i am alive for ever and ever; and i have the keys of Death and of Hades..." [Rev. 1:16-18. Taken from the book 'Wisdom of the 4th Way'].

Recall what 'Revelation' implies {elsewhere} - in relation to such {archetypes?} as Hades [Part 1].

Question. Full circle?

"What is a symbol anyway? In effect, it is the good old ''outward sign of an inward grace,'' or a practical link between objective and subjective existence. It is a body containing a soul, matter holding a meaning, a focus of force, a condenser of consciousness, or a ''thought tank." Anything and everything can be a symbol. Whatsoever connects consciousness, and life together from one level to another, or even to different points on the same level is a symbol. Figures, letters, words and ideographs are very good examples of symbols, since these join thinking with living." [ Chapter 3, of the book by William Gray].

Understanding that framework in relation to the ''divine bit'' gives a deeper meaning to those words [ intent of] - highlighted.

venus'The Birth of Venus' by Botticelli. 'The Primavera' [ also known as ''Allegory of Spring''], painted by same, of which has been said....."One of the most popular paintings in Western art"..........."One of the most written about, and controversial paintings in the world." [ Wikipedia ].

To understand their true meaning, define those KEYS. As an example... what can sometimes be found within a Scallop shell. Put that answer in the search box.

"The word ' Scallop ' can bring several images to mind: perhaps first as a decorative motif used on the edge of draperies or clothing or jewellery. The shell of the Great Scallop [Pecten maximus. Latin for 'comb'], was a symbol used by artists throughout the centuries. Greek temples and Roman vases were adorned with shell motifs. A famous example from mediaeval times is the Triton Fountain in Rome. The marble fountain, designed by Bernini in 1642, shows Triton, son of the sea god Poseidon, perched on a large, open scallop shell, supported by two dolphins."...........

Synchronistic example [if only for this reader]...From a poem by Q. S. Lam entitled: 'A small Cloud'..."A small cloud has been hanging over her for as long as she can remember. Today the tears fell, like slender rivers; the mask slipping off and fell to the floor. There she sat in the middle of the ocean, the dolphins were singing and she didn't sing back. She threw small daggers at them. A little dolphin winked and squeaked. Opening her eyes, she wasn't so alone anymore - perched on a small rock, she stared out at the ocean - kicked down the door of her mind - to take a gentle stroll. What did she see? More closed doors, not a shaving of light, only a small cloud floating stubbornly, and a broken plate - ''Chuck it away'', a distant voice whispered. The landscape on the plate; painted with such care faded now - just an outline: ''Time to paint a new picture'', the voice whispered again: And step into a new landscape with fresh things to discover..." Other examples of same author - elsewhere.

That ''new picture'' could be : "In the fantasy we have taken, it is true that this animus figure cut the woman off from life, behaving in a most orthodox and exemplary manner, so that the natural feminine was quite suffocated, and because everything he told her was in fact material that is stressed again and again in the Logos world, she had no way of escape but through what seemed an unjust sickness. To come again to the feminine realm means to face the animus from a NEW STANDPOINT. St. Augustine said that woman has no soul for she is soul. If a woman has the courage to leave the logos world and seek and give value to the feminine truth, the animus is her guide and friend. Whole in herself, her sons are free, and she passes to them the mystery of the soul that they, too, may face life." ['The Old Wise Woman: A Study of Active Imagination' / R. Weaver]. Hence...

"Quintessential saviors of the shipwrecked and drowning, dolphins are the nimble ''sea people'' {Bacchylides of Ceos} who can be relied upon to buoy us up and carry us back to shore, protect us from marine marauders, keep us company in our lone passages through treacherous channels and, if we're lucky, escort our ships out of trouble before they founder in the first place. The reasons for wild dolphins' long history of beneficence towards us is a mystery, but their role as our rescuers from imminent submergence is attested in outer reality as well as in our dreams. There is something suggestive in the similarity of the Greek words for dolphin {delphis} and for womb or uterus {delphys}. Just as the goddess Aphrodite is born from the surf and is often shown on the back of a dolphin, the streamlined creatures who are so conspicuously attuned with their marine world are emissaries of the womb of the ocean, where all life arose, and to which the whales, rare among mammals, returned to live after having spent some evolutionary time as earth dwellers...Dolphins are sometimes 'trickster' type - as they don't mind playing jokes on..." ['The Book of Symbols' / Taschen. 'Dolphin'].

A side step..."Digby, [ Nova Scotia ] is known as the ''Scallop Capital of the World.'' United Empire Loyalists from New York and New England, led by the British Admiral, Sir Robert Digby, settled in Digby in 1783. Situated on the South Western shore of Nova Scotia on the Bay of Fundy, the town was built as a fishing and lumber center. Digby is the gateway to Nova Scotia, for visitors arriving by ferry from Saint John, New Brunswick..." [ www.scalloppearl.ca/scallop.htm].

"Scallop pearls or Lion Paw pearls, are extremely rare non - nacreous pearls, produced by a bi-valve mollusk, commonly known as the Scallop, Lions Paw or in Spanish ''Mano de Leon'' [hand of the lion]." [www.internetstones.com/scallop-pearls]."

N.B. Scratch of lion in relation to a cat = more 'intent'. Question. Intent of what? Question 2. Do the 'scratchings' relate to the inner or outer of the shell? What does that imply? If only in relation to a subject.

"In Latin a pearl was 'unio', because, as Pliny writes, it is 'the unique gem', or because pearls are only found singly...Oysters open and shut, like doors [folding doors in English were once called 'bivalves'], and the open shell of an oyster looks like the number 8." [Quote from the Lexicon chapter to the book ' The Book of Babel: Words and the Way We See Things' by N.Lewis].

"When we look into George O'Keeffe's slightly open clamshell we see the chaste beauty of the primordial shell of existence, a reminder of the sea's salty, elemental first fruits of life. Or again, the slightly open shell imparts subtle, feeling-toned qualities: the receptive, intimate, sensual and shy. It speaks of the creative and gestative, the introverted containment that fosters the essence of a life...Their rough round shells, invite our projections of prying open the world with our consciousness - ''the world is my oyster'' - extracting its treasures, assimilating its good, The shell opening of itself evokes the wonders of revelation and incarnation. And the closing of the shell: hidden process, reticence, and isolation; ''clamming up,'' a drawing of boundaries; a gathering in; being ''secret, and self contained, and solitary as an oyster''..."

"The first Masonic lodge in Digby, was established on September 29th, 1784, only one year after the settlement was founded.".......""Digby was named in honor of Robert Digby, a British Admiral, who commanded the convoy ''Atalanta'' which brought 1500 Loyalist refugees from New England in 1783. Among the Loyalists settled in Digby, was John Edison from Newark, New Jersey. He brought his family with him and remained until 1810. In April 1799, he was appointed directer of the town marsh, and in 1808, assessor. In 1804, a grandson, Samuel, was born in Digby, who, in 1847 in Milan, Ohio, became the father of Thomas Alva Edison, the famous inventor. One of the features of the town, is the old ''Admirals Well.''.............

Further head scratch...''Potter'' [potters wheel? i.e.,as one example the Egyptian 'Khnum'] ''Smith'' [blacksmith?] Sulis [eye?] Odelle [a girls name; therefore 'feminine' aspect? Can also mean ''harmonious'']. Question. Coincidence or a meaningful one or conspiracy theorist?

A piece of prose..........."You can destroy yourself by fire...by anger expressed outwards...as well as by coldness turned inwards. You will notice that this is not a choice. You either hate too much or love too much. Some say the world will end in fire, others say in ice. From what i've tasted of desire, i hold with those who favour fire. But if it had to perish twice, i think i know enough of hate, to say that for destruction, ice is also great, and would suffice". [Robert Frost. 1874-1963. 'Fire and Ice'. Taken from.. 'Speaking From the Heart' by Sister W. Beckett].

"The messenger of god said, 'The Quran was sent down in seven modes. Every verse in it has an external and an internal meaning and at each boundary there is a vista," [Tabari].

"The messenger of god said, 'If anyone makes the care of his external welfare the sum total of his cares, god will protect him from worldly care; but if he has a variety of cares relating to the matters of this world, god will not be concerned in which of its valleys he perishes."[ Ibn Majah]. Both taken from 'The Book of Hadiths' [Sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, from the Mishkat al- Masabib] by C. L. Eaton.

Now that foundation is exposed. Those that follow should find it no more difficult than any other subject. Once that is...you begin to ‘get your head around it’. As you have to do in any subject. Try it. Start off with the idiot/ dummy series especially anything written by Dennis Hauck. Followed by authors such as / K. Gest / R. Smolley /T. Freke / I. Regardie / J. Black / C. Wilson / Celia Green / A. Collins / Rene Guenon, M. Ling, F. Schuon, [in Mr Schuon case... only with a good head of hair. Dont laugh. Proof? See the 'bald' chap on the Phaistos disc. Compare to the one with a 'good head of hair'. Whose laughing now? ]..to name but a few. Try and understand what they imply within those same books in relation to the keys mentioned. Then read those excellent researched books by such authors as A. Alford / G. Hancock / R. Bauval / D. Wilcock or Z. Sitchin. Attempt to 'see' what they don't see. That 'inner' one. Go on from there. Note down those common links. That is...if you truly want to understand another subject rather than leave it all, to those first impressions.

David Icke uses a similar term ''Seeing is decoding'' when attempting to understand some of the above. He can indeed 'see' [i.e.,understand] those 'altered states' that this subject has defined for thousands of years [in relation to A/B/C - i.e., 'Macro'] - and defines them like no other - almost in a poetic style - but as soon as anything relating to the 'serpent' is mentioned [this readers opinion only] he falls right off his very own precipice, [ 'Micro']. Mr Sitchin does the same - not quite; however as extreme as Mr Icke.

'Seeing is believing' - Dynamo - O2 stadium.

"They build their individual towers of Babel which fall, as a rule, according to the law of all towers of Babel, and experience, sooner or later, a salutary fall, as is the teaching of the 16th card of the Tarot. They do not fall from a real height into a real abyss; it is only from an imaginary height that they fall and they fall only to the ground, i.e., they learn the lesson that we human beings of today have all learned or have still to learn..." [Taken from the book by the author Tomberg].

Question. Has that single {obsession?} been seeded from elsewhere? i.e.,...

"It is clear - and other mediums confirm this - that people like me are chosen to do our work. I've often been asked, who does the choosing, and i always answer: ' I wish i knew! Because i'd like to have a few words with him! ' I was often aware, however, that certain people were training me, particular when i was healing, including the doctor who had first made contact with me {i.e.,deceased}. I saw a lot of him during those early days, and began to communicate with him telepathically...Other spirits arrived, wanting to work with me. Two of them i hesitated to write about, because i realise that the stories sound so incredible. There was a phase when i began seeing rather frightening pictures of snakes, and found myself writing a lot of poetry. I was in bed one night when a man appeared and said: 'I'm William Blake, and i'd like to work with you.' It was he who was sending me the drawings. At that time i had no idea who he was. All i knew, was that i thought his pictures were creepy. I said, 'Please go away. I don't want this'. When a friend told me that Blake was a famous mystical artist and poet, i went to the library to find out more about him, and saw drawings exactly like those he had been sending me. After about two weeks of being shown these terrifying pictures, i finally said to him: 'Look, will you please push off! ' I never saw him again. [Extract from the book 'Mind to Mind' by Betty Shine].

Betty Shine the first person David Icke went to see, {after reading?}: Shortly after experiencing his own unusual events.

Proving the viability of research over those first impressionable ones {'shadow' ones?}.

"Despite his success Icke  wrote that in 1989 was a time of considerable personal despair, and it was during this period he began to feel a presence around him...Icke visited B. Shine four times - during the third meeting in 1990 he felt ''something like a spiders web on his face...'' [Wiki/D. Icke].

'Shadowland :{Spider World}' by C. Wilson.

Analogy of same..."I often reflected that my majestic master could easily have been an emperor or world-shaking warrior had his mind been centered on fame or worldly achievement. He had chosen instead to storm those inner citadels of wrath and egotism whose fall is the height of a man." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi' ]. Try ''giant''.

A present day example..."Shortly after film school i was elevated to get into Art College to finally study a fine arts degree...Unfortunately , both the experience of film school and art school were littered with an array of tough challenges. And although i was at long last, pursuing my ambition of being an artist, i was steadily becoming a little worse mentally each day, aligning myself with a coterie of the wrong sort of people in London and setting myself up for a colossal fall." [Taken from the book by Q. S. Lam].

As an example, {i.e.,in relation to an understanding of the 'serpent' symbol} - page 202 'Genesis Revisited'/ Z. Sitchin under the heading 'The Emblem of Entwined Serpents' "In the biblical tale of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden, the antagonist of the lord god who had caused them to acquire 'knowing' [ the ability to procreate] was the Serpent, Nahash in Hebrew. The term has two other meanings: 'he who knows secrets' and 'he who knows copper'. These other meanings or word plays are found in the Sumerian epithet BUZUR for Enki, which meant 'he who solves secrets' and 'he of the metal mines'. I have therefore suggested in previous writings that, in the original Sumerian version, the 'Serpent' was Enki. His emblem was entwined serpents, it was the symbol of his cult center at Eridu [a], of his African domains in general [b], and of the pyramids in particular [c]; and it appeared on Sumerian illustrations on cylinder seals of the events described in the bible. What did the emblem of entwined serpents- the symbol for medicine and healing to this very day- represent? The discovery by modern science of the double helix structure of DNA offers the answer: the entwined serpents emulated the structure of the genetic code, the secret knowledge of which enabled Enki to create the Adam and then grant Adam and Eve the ability to procreate. The emblem of Enki as a sign of healing was invoked by Moses when he made a nehash nehosheth- a 'copper serpent'- to halt an epidemic afflicting the Israelites. Was the involvement of copper in the triple meanings of the term and in the making of the copper serpent by Moses due to some unknown role of copper in genetics and healing."

'Serpent' in relation to 'the fall' - by way of - mettle of the mind?

A more closer to the 'mark' definition {understanding?} of same principle..."Adrian Gilbert, who was previously mentioned, has written several books on the subject of ancient knowledge and esoteric wisdom. In his book 'Signs in the Sky' he noted that the term 'serpent' was frequently used in ancient times to define a shadow cast by the sun. I couldn't help remembering that the Celtic cross in Northamptonshire shows an image of intertwined serpents on the circular head. This would make sense if the cross were used for measurements using the shadow of the sun, and a shadow was regarded in ancient times as a serpent." [From the book by K. Gest].

'Shadow' in relation to ''the fall'' {S/W?}. Anything? All as a means...

Question. What would ''anima'' be represented by? AND what direction would it be associated with, i.e.,bottom up or top down?

''The lengthened shadow of man is history...'' Quote from within.

"There is more to the serpent than meets the eye. Its coils lie at the very foundation of the Western world, and so it is no wonder that is was the foundation stone of the West's greatest myths and legends." Back cover to the book 'The Serpent Grail: The Truth Behind the Holy Grail, The Philosopher's Stone and the Elixir of Life' by P. Gardiner and G. Osborn.

Another example but now in the 'Macro' sense of the 'word' {i.e.,'serpent' }..."As mentioned, the lengthwise {E/W?} axis of Izapa's ballcourt {Mayan culture} is aligned to the December solstice horizon. A monument on the eastern end of the ballcourt shows one of the 'Hero Twins' standing victorious over a completely fallen Seven Macaw {who must be deposed before One Hunahpa can be 'reborn'}. On the western end of the ballcourt we find a throne and several small monuments that each encode the different metaphors by which the alignment was understood. The throne itself has carved legs between which a solar god's head, or solar Ahau face, is emerging. This birth scene faces eastward down the axis of the ballcourt toward the December solstice sunrise, where the convergence of solstice sun and 'dark rift' was tracked. Clearly, the throne depicts the future alignment as a birth. Next to the throne we find a circular stone ring in which a stone ball was placed. In the symbolism of the ball game the December solstice sun is the game ball and the dark rift {or Calactic Center} is the goal ring. Finally, next to the ring and ball we find a serpents head, which, like most ballcourt markers, originally had a solar Ahau face in its mouth. This is the devouring end-of-age image of the sun in the snake's mouth - implying that death must precede rebirth." [From the book 'Galactic Alignment: The Transformation of Consciousness According to Mayan, Egyptian, and Vedic Traditions' by J. M. Jenkins].

'Shadow' in relation to 'light' as a means to a further {personal?} understanding, {as is the intention of the word 'Throne' in relation to 'West'}. Nothing else. ''End-of-age'' in relation to 'the tail end' of something begins the process {beginning} of something else - defined as the 'end of the world' i.e.,death/rebirth {DECEMBER 2012}. Or more to the point {in the 'macro' sense of the 'word'} - the beginning of a new age,i.e.,Aquarius - thereafter new symbols {archetypes?} used - but which still explains/explores that SAME subject material {in the form of a 'journey'?}.

images[3]

In 'journey' form?

"In the old religion a snake symbolizes the Inner Wisdom that is intuition." [Extract found and enlarged elsewhere].

"...they have adopted that of Gnosis, which represents simply the notion of learning by intuition." quote within the book by E. Levi.

Mysticism is the source and root of all religions." [Quote from the book by Tomberg]. Link to the word ''Gnosis'' and what it implies, i.e.,in relation to that universal framework and/or the contents of this web page... What the author finally defines as ''spiritual touch'' or ''intuition''.

"The word 'spiritual' should be associated with the word 'eyes'. This is a reference to the eyes of the mind or heart. To see is to understand." [From the book by T. Nottingham].

A side step..."As for the serpent , the Bible sometimes employs it to symbolize healing and genuine wisdom, but its subtlety is usually sinister. For it came straight from the abhorred fertility cults of the Canaanites and Aramaeans. ['Eve' originally, may not have been derived from 'hay', [life], but from 'hiwya', the Aramaic for snake]......."But 'J' [in relation to the 'authors of the Bible i.e., J, P, D, E ], improves on these traditions by using the serpent to stand for the duality of good and evil, which was familiar to the Persians, and later found a way into the Hebrew religion." [Chapter 9, 'The History of Ancient Israel'. Mentioned elsewhere]. i.e.,..

"...The brain is therefore an organ effecting mimicry, choosing what it is going to mime. It mimes accordingly. Now relevant mimicry is precisely what the Book of Genesis understands by 'cunning' when it says that - " the serpent was more cunning than any other wild creature that the lord god had made" {Genesis iii, 1}. It is, as it were the 'psychological' principle of the serpent, just as enfoldment and movement in a closed circle is its 'dynamic' principle, [i.e.,from 'uncoiled' to coiled. Explained elsewhere. This readers input]. To be cunning is to mime wisdom." [Taken from the book by Tomberg]. ALL as a representation of something. That something that defines a learning process. Represented as 'intelligence' in relation to 'wisdom', i.e.,as represented in one form of expression, with the figures 'Virgil' and 'Beatrice'. Enlarged elsewhere. The real question is - if only for this reader- fact or fiction. A possibility or not?

'Serpent Power' by Sebai Ashby - Just as Dennis Hauck explains Alchemy like no other [if only for this reader,i.e., it was Mr Haucks well grounded understanding - of a difficult subject - that gave this reader his initial inspiration to delve deeper in order to understand the whole] - then Mr Ashby does the same for the ''serpent'', i.e.,what it represents. Try ''precipice'' in the usual box.

This subject not only explains what the 'serpent' truly represents, [as well as other words such as ''copper'' and ''triple'' as already proven]- but understanding the 'divine' relative to A/B/C gives clues as to where that 'start point' is most likely, i.e.,the '12th planet', should there be one, cannot be in [A], the physical world. Think about it, relative to chapter 5, 'The Zelator' and...

"The 'primal revelation', which is referred to by theology and to which natural religion is due, is the hope and faith, which vibrates both in the whole world and in each particular being [generally as a subconscious conviction], that life proceeds from a 'holy' source, that it flows towards an end of supreme worth, and that it is 'gift, benediction and vocation." [Extract taken from the book by Tomberg]. Together with...

"In speaking of 'higher' or 'lower' worlds, i do not mean to describe an actual physical relation; for in the realm of the spiritual there is no such division, and the words 'high' and 'low' refer only to the place of any particular 'world' on the ladder of causality. To call a world higher signifies that it is more primary, more basic in terms of being close to a primal source of influence; while a lower world would be a secondary world- in a sense a copy. Yet that copy is not just an imitation but rather a whole system, with a more or less independent life of its own, its own variety of experience, characteristics, and properties. The world in which we ordinarily live, with all that it embraces, is called the 'world of action': and it includes the world of both our sensual and non-sensual apprehension. But this world of action itself, is not all of the same essence and same quality. The lower part of the world of action is what is known as the 'world of physical nature' and of more or less mechanical processes...that is to say, the world where nature law prevails; while above this world of physical nature, is another part of the same world, which we may call the 'world of spiritual action'. What is common to these two domains[i.e.,A+B, this readers input] of the 'world of action' is man, the human creature so situated between them that he partakes of both." [page 4, 'The Thirteen Petalled Rose' by A. Steinsaltz]. Think about it, relative to, ...

On what side of the equal sign would 'B' be placed if it was indeed 'primary' over 'A'. Left or right of the equal sign? What would that answer relate to... relative to 'C'?

As a side note - just as Mr Ashby and Mr Hauck have been mentioned - it is only [fair?] to include the works of Tomberg - once again; if only for this reader - in relation to the those same universal keys and principles being expressed [and therefore represented] - but now within the Christian and Catholic sub-division - BY WAY OF - the Hermetic one. There is a difference. Can you by now 'see' it yet? If not - study more. As one does in any subject - depending on interest.

"...This is why we have repeated so many times in these 'Letters' that practical [i.e.,lived] Hermeticism is neither occult science, nor magic, not gnosis, nor mysticism - but rather their synthesis. For it is a 'tree' not a 'tower'. And it is man himself; the whole man - who is at one at the same time philosopher and magician, gnostic and mystic - who is the 'tree'. " [Extract from the book by Tomberg. 'Letter 16' ].

Tower of Babel? Question. Why should the tree be different? What does it represent?

"A working example: "The process John went through to have his revelatory experience, combined with the content of the experience, reveals a spiritual, mystical approach to life. The mystical approach is founded upon a belief that each of us can have an immediate, intuitive perception of spiritual truths {eureka?} that transcend ordinary intellectual understanding by experiencing a direct, intimate union of our soul with god." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way']. 'See' it?

Information gained by way of an ’imaginary’ exercise. Choose your own names. Fill in the blanks. For ‘aspiration / inspiration’ use only, i.e., what these authors refer to as 'practical imagination', [cognitive faculty / eye of horus etc. Explained elsewhere], as opposed to the 'fantasy' aspect of same. Positive aspect of the imagination over its negative. Islams equivalent, the word Barzakh, i.e.,"Barzakh is the world of the imagination that stands as a mesocosm between the spiritual and material worlds. It is the 'interworld', as Henry Corbin calls it." ['The Universal Tree and the Four Birds' by Ibn Arabi].

"The imagination is a 'sun', in the soul of man, acting in his own sphere, as the sun of the earth acts in him." [ Paracelsus].

"Two ways of making a good living....There are two ways of making a good living. One is the result of hard working, and the other, the result of the imagination [requires work, too, of course]. Some may not believe it, but i spent hours perfecting whatever i did." [Taken from Part four, 'on achievement', from the book, 'Striking Thoughts' {Bruce Lee's Wisdom for Daily Living'} by J. Little].

Or what the author of 'The Sacred History' and 'The Secret History of the World' calls 'idealism',i.e.,"The philosophical term for the 'mind came first' view is 'idealism'. It's a confusing term, because outside academia it is more often used to mean the pursuit of high ideals, while students of philosophy, at least those studying in Anglo-American tradition, encounter it as a quaint theory of knowledge which no one really believes any more and which was last seriously defended in the eighteen century by Bishop Berkeley. For most of history though, idealism was a cosmology and an all embracing heartfelt philosophy of life". [Preface to the book, 'The Sacred History' by J. Black].

Analogy of same? "...Assuming that irrefutable form of idealism which contents itself with the demonstration that, knowledge being a function of the mind, as the materialists not merely concede, but insist, the universe as we know it is equivalent to the contents of that mind; and assuming also that the mind contains a power able to control thought; then there is no absurdity in asserting that mind may be the master of matter..." [Extract from the book 'The Magister' ].

"Imagination' is a mental force with power to create matter and also to move it like a magnet. 'God' imagined the world into existence, and through our imagination we become co-creators....An individuals imagination plays a crucial role in moulding that world around that individual. It exerts a pressure on the fabric of space-time, pushing or pulling it, so that the ripples start locally, before spreading out across the universe." [Same book].. Together with...

"The ancients lived in a cosmos concerned for humanity, and higher mathematics was one way of describing that concern. Some people are hostile to mysticism because they see it as a lapse into lazy or infantile thinking. That is not the case here. The thinking is extraordinary complex and insightful - but it is not empirical thinking. It is the thinking of 'idealism' working itself out into the world and discovering the way the world works, by means of, 'this way' of thinking." [Chapter 6, same book].

"To Jung, the imagination was the key to the secret of nature in alchemy, and the secret of the self in analytical psychology. The 'imaginatio' as the alchemists understood it, is in truth a key that opens the door to the secret of the Opus''. [Extract from the book by M. Katz].

"Mysticism is the source and root of all religions." [Quote from the book by Tomberg]. Link to the word ''Gnosis'' and what it implies, i.e.,in relation to that universal framework and/or the contents of this web page.

Understanding those universal keys within a 'framework' - defines all the above - gives them all - possible substance - a possible form to work on. Before those bigger questions are asked.

Example of same,[positive aspect], could be 'visualizing' oneself in an interview prior to the actual event. Going over what you would like to say, and how you would say it, in order to give a good impression. As a means of giving your self the best possible chance of achieving something that one has an interest in.

Another example could be... Several friends, [numbers / characters yet unknown], or 'outward bound’ participants come together on a climbing expedition. A ‘fatal’ accident occurs and they all find themselves you know where, [ ‘Afterlife’]. Fortunately each individual has a good understanding of certain subjects. Mythology, Astrology, Sciences, Physics, Religions e.t.c. They pool all these resources of information together and with additional information acquired from the individuals they meet over there begin to understand the purpose of their new environment. Which falls in line with all known ‘esoteric’ lore as briefly explained above...as an example. [ use this link].

For example there will be a Muslim / Asian character who amongst other things understands the Quran. Who now besides trying to understand his own religion in relation to his new environment; and visu/versu; goes in search for his older brother who was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, and who ‘died’ many years previously, [suicide bomber]. He himself, [older brother], since being ‘over there’ has been waiting for his expected ‘just rewards’, [twelve virgins plus paradise. Or is it twenty- four?]. Needless to say he is not a happy chap when nothing shows up. Not even Allah/God.

Every one agrees regardless of culture or religion that god = allah and allah = god, i.e., Yahwah/YHVH. As explained for the ‘Allah’ equivalent of same ... in that ‘third and final message’...The Quran:- In such books as ‘The Mystical Dimensions of Islam’. By A. Schimmel. As an example. The Quran is composed of what is termed as suras. The largest of which are at its beginning. The smallest towards the end. In other words, recalling Mr Bohr's discipline...from a broad base to a fine point. Do you see anything? One of those ancient symbols. Mentioned elsewhere. Islams esoteric equivalent...

....as are the ’Muqatta-at’. Those ’letters’ that prefix certain sura-s, that not even Muhammad understood. Or at least decided not to mention. It IS surprising however that no mention was made, of same, even within Islams 'Hadiths'. More surprisingly...not even the question.... as what they were, or their importance, has ever been recorded. Every generation since the creation of the Quran up to the present day, have speculated on what those letters mean. Yet no answer came from either Muhammad or within those Hadiths. There has to be a reason... as there is in all things...That inner one?

...The starry inscription at one's birth, i came to understand, is not that man is a puppet of his past. Its messages is rather a prod to pride; the very heavens seek to arouse man's determination to be free from every limitation. God created each man as a soul, dowered with individuality, hence essential to the universal structure, whether in the temporary role of pillar or parasite. His freedom is final and immediate, if he so wills; it depends not on outer but inner victories." [Extract from the book on the life of Paramahansa Yogananda. Enlarged elsewhere ].

"We now begin a series of seven Surahs [40-46] to which are affixed the Abbreviated letters Ha - Mim [i.e.,part of the Muqatta-at collection]. Chronologically they all belong to the same period, the later Makkan period, and they immediately follow the last Surah in time. As to the precise meaning of Ha - Mim no authoritative explanation is available. If Mim here has a significance to a line similar elsewhere, i.e.,Alif, Lam, Mim - it means the end of things, the last day, and all these Surahs [seven] direct our special attention to that ''Ha''; the emphatic guttural, in contrast to the softer breathing of Alif; may be meant to suggest that the Beginning - is only for the end; the present for the future...But this is mere conjecture, and should be taken for no more than it is worth." [Introduction to Surah 40 of the Quran, by Yusuf Ali]. Think about it in relation to what 'forty' and 'seven' represent within this subject. The tail end of something begins the start of something else?

Possibility of. I.e., "stretching ones envelope." in relation to being on the 'verge', [boundary line] of understanding something new. [Link to Enki, "stretching, his own boundaries". Symbolism of. Mentioned elsewhere].

New Testament equivalent..."Seek and you will find. Knock and it shall be opened". Link to 'doors', false or real, in pagan or Egyptian 'constructions',i.e.,small 'doors' within the shafts in Queens chamber. Mentioned elsewhere.

'Alchemy' equivalent: "Neophyte grade {MThIHD} ; meaning 'converted'. The root of the word 'converted', other than its obvious usage in religious terminology, is 'to turn around'. It signifies a turning around of attention to that which is not apparent. It is when the person in Plato's cave first wonders about the shadows on the wall and turns around to see from where they are being cast. This begins a new phase in their life, hence 'Neophyte'; one 'new' to that direction...The word MThChIL is also similar to MThIChH meaning 'stretched', 'extended'. The conversion or transformation that goes on at Neophyte is one where the person is stretched...Interesting by gematria, the word has the value of 488 , the same value as PhThCh, meaning 'gate, 'entrance' 'insight'. " [Extract from the book 'The Magister' ].

Landscape equivalent - a u-turn. See it?

"Indeed the material Ka'ba in the city of Makka is kept clean for the pilgrims. How much cleaner should one keep the inner Ka'ba upon which truth will gaze. After these preparations the inner pilgrim wraps himself in the light of the holy spirit, transforming his material shape into the inner essence, and circumambulates the Ka'ba of the heart, inwardly reciting the second divine name - Allah, the proper name of god. He moves in circles because the path of essence is not straight but circular. ITS end is its beginning. Then he goes to the 'Arafat' of the heart, that inner place of supplication, that place where one hopes to know the secret of 'There is no god but He, Who is One and Who has no partners......" [Chapter 18, 'Secret of Secrets' by Al - Jilani]. Think on it relative to what was once known as the ''Great Year.'' Also put ''supplication'' in the box.

Question. Any u-turn within that 'landscape'?

REFRESHER: Hebrew equivalent {i.e.,Deuteronomy}: "If you return to your god. If with all your heart and soul you obey his 'voice'. Then he will brink back your captives. Should you have been banished to the very sky's end your god will gather you again - even from there."

"The only books worth our attention are those which spring from the heart and in turn speak to the heart, the Sufis tell us, and by the 'heart' they do not mean the source of psychological feelings but something much more profound. 'Heart' can be understood as the very center of our psycho - physical being, as the meeting place of soul and mind or, more precisely, as the focal point [link to 'anchor'[key]], where the mind, which in itself is all knowledge or light, is reflected in the mirror of the 'soul'.....

''...meeting place'' in relation to 'crossover' point - therefore that link to horizontal/vertical symbolism. Purpose of. Anything?

"As the Prophet says, 'There is a piece of meat in mans body - when it is in a good state, the whole being improves, and when it is in a bad state, the whole being falls apart. Be aware, that piece of meat is the heart." [Extract taken from chapter 14, 'The Secret of Secrets'].

''gather'' in relation to ''falls apart'' - Recall Part 1.

.....We have anticipated then, one of the principle themes of the book by Ibn Arabi, a work concerned essentially with the role of various 'prophets' in 'revelation'. Ibn Arabi names some 27 prophets, all of whom are mentioned in the Quran, each one is a 'vessel' of divine wisdom [i.e.,representational of. This readers input] which, owing to this fact, takes on human nature with its limitations, all the while remaining one and indivisible in itself... ''Water derives its color from the vessel that holds it,'' Sufi al-Junaid maintains. This law which places in opposition, the light of revelation and a plan which reflects and confines it, is repeated on every level of the macrocosm and microcosm, of the world, and of man." [Preface to the book,'The Bezels of Wisdom' by Ibn Arabi. Emphasis, this readers].

Ibn al-Arabi who himself was born on the twenty seventh of Ramadan in A.H.560.

"Twenty-seven is interesting, from the mathematical viewpoint, as the third power of the sacred three, thus as Plutarch noted, as first odd, or masculine cube. It also belongs to the lunar numbers, since the moon is at best visible 3x9 nights. Like 18, 27 appears frequently in traditions where 9 was of importance...In Russian folktales the hero often traverses 3x9 countries before reaching his goal. The number is common in the folk traditions of eastern Europe, such as collecting 27 flowers on St. John's night for protection or prognostication. In Lithuania describes the planting and growing of 3x9 rue, again for protective purposes. 27 is mentioned in ancient Egypt, but in a negative sense. In a board game with 30 squares, the 27th, called water, [wet/dry link. This readers input]- means loss: the player who lands on it loses the game, and it has been speculated that dim memories of the dark moon are reflected in this negative result." [Taken from 'The Mystery of Numbers' by Annemarie Schimmel].

Question. Can you see the connection between ''water'' ''dark'' and ''negative''? What about dry/light and positive? = ''reflection of a positive result''; represented as the full moon? Question 2. What would that answer indicate? Try ''cube'',i.e.,what does it represent? and why ''masculine''. Clue. Shadow or anima? As a start [or anchor] point, of something. Try ''27''.

Change of pace..."Such a division of the 7 into these two constituent principles: the spiritual 3 and the material 4, was used time and again..." [Taken from 'Mystery of Numbers'].

The two brothers are as opposite as Cain/Able. Eventually they get together, sort their differences out, both individually and within the group and then go on to solve a few more ’Group’ questions. He himself, [Asian character/ senior], understands Sufi lore and Egyptian ancient history. It is he who believes he has worked out the final resting place of the three Pharoahs.

Question. You could say. Whats the point? No financial or similar benefit could be gotten from it. Considering their ‘circumstances’. The benefit would be the verification [verily, verily. New Testament]- of the subject. Then for it to be used in their own environment / situation. This character is only mentioned as an example of the positive aspect of the ‘imaginary’ materials framework. Since 9/11 all authors have jumped on the proverbial bandwagon with predictable results. This variation; you may agree; or may not; has a positive twist. Not for the sake of making the story 'different'. But simply because that's the way the story line pans out, i.e.,sometimes the bad guys make good. Nor do we need this subject to inform us of that basic fact.

Everyone knows someone, either directly or indirectly, who while starting on the wrong foot/tack/path has managed to 'change' that situation around. Which fits in with all the amentioned authors.

This character however is the main theme / core of the ‘story’.....Briefly. What he has done in [A]. His decisions/ actions. How he comes to terms; should he want to; with the result of those same decisions / actions in [B, i.e.,the middle 'ground']...In order to get to [C]. Which again fits in with all esoteric lore. All authors suggest that within [B] is an ongoing process from [A]. "As above so below". The implication being just as it is a learning curve in [A] that same process is continued in [B]. Or more importantly- the main implication being- that all problems can still be resolved. Negatives can still be turned into positives. But all agree...that is only possible when its a personnel choice. That about turn, [u-turn] has to be a individual effort.

"It seldom happens that a man changes his life through his habitual reasoning. No matter how fully he may sense the new plans and aims revealed to him by reason, he continues to plod along in the old paths until his life becomes frustrating and unbearable - he finally makes the change only when his usual life can no longer be tolerated." Tolstoy [1828 - 1910. Extract taken from the book 'Mind Magic' by Betty Shine]. Try ''plough''.

'45 Mercy Street' ?

A working example?..."She was merciful and would cure anyone who repented and promised to atone for their actions. For example, a worker named Neferabu recorded that he had been punished by Meretseger for his sins. However, he confessed and did his best to make amends and the goddess forgave him and cured him of his affliction. These notions of ''sin'' and ''repentance'' were not common in ancient Egypt. They believed in Maat {balance and order} and chaos rather than ''good'' and ''evil'' - and NO other deity rewarded atonement or punished sin in this manner..." ['www.ancientegyptonline.co.uk/meretserger' ].

Analogy of same..."...It appears that misery, starvation, and disease are whips of our karma that ultimately drive us to seek the true meaning of life." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'. Enlarged elsewhere].

"Never say any man is hopeless, because he only represents a character, a bundle of habits, and these can be checked by new and better ones." [Swami Vivekananda].

Question. 'Younger' / 'elder' link?

Question 2. Is that the reason maybe, why all authors of this subject do continue to write and believe in it. The fear factor. Not wanting to believe that there is an end to it? Spending the time and effort to convince others? That is a possibility. But for this reader, at least, that possibility; when assessed and 'weighed' up with all 'its' relevant circumstantial evidence; is well down his list of 'possibilities'.

That 'effort' represented by the 'eternal apprentice', [explained elsewhere]. By way of a 'fire', i.e., the 'effort taken' ['plough' symbolism] - to understand something, by way of, thought/emotion/will. All explained elsewhere. Sufi equivalent...Al-Ghazali/s 'Path to Sufism'- [his deliverance from error]. Link to the 'fall', [key] i.e.,in relation to an individual effort, by way of a 'leap' [key. In Islams case that word is 'miraj']... of understanding, by way of the 'heart',[key]. Book twenty one of ' The Revivification of the Re-ligious Sciences.' That link to the 'middle way' in relation to a possible journey. An individual one.

"We cannot know the destination other than what it is not; what we have already exhausted or demonstrated untrue in our experience. A candidate's position in the initiatory structure can be best determined by the questions that concern them, not the answers that they think they have understood." [Extract from the book 'The Magister'. Mentioned elsewhere].

''...destination'' - relative to a 'journey' - ''...what we have already exhausted" in relation to those 'list of possibilities' - what the author of the above text defines as the ''way of exhaustion'' what others define as [by] way of 'negation'. All a link to the benefits of working something out by objectivity. Analogy of same - but now in the ''spiritual'' sense...

"For Corbin, the Arabic words 'zahir' and 'batin' perfectly indicate the contrast and complementary between exoteric and esoteric. In Islam, everything that is, all external or apparent [zahir] phenomena conceal [and thereby reveal to whomever has eyes to see] a hidden, interior [batin] reality."................."Arabic accordingly proposes another set of terms: 'tanzil' and 'tawil.' Tanzil, which is the ordinary word for 'positive religion' or the letter of the Revelation, means [literally] ''to cause to come down.'' Tawil, conversely, means ''to cause to return,'' that is, to ascend or lead back [restore to its origin]........"Tawil is ''to bring something back to its origin'' - Hence he who practices tawil is one who turns his speech from the outer form to the inner reality." [Extracts taken from 'Alexandria' Vol. One. Mentioned elsewhere].

"The Quran has an outer meaning and an inner meaning." [Quote by Muhammad]........"the outer knowledge which is the shell, protects the inner knowledge which is the seed." [Page 22, 39, of the book, 'Secret of Secrets'].

Mustard seed?

Hebrew equivalent..."Jewish gnostics believed that answers to these questions were encoded in two allegorical myths from the Book of Moses: Genesis and Exodus. Genesis means 'origination'. It was understood as encoding teachings about the descent of the soul into physical incarnation. Exodus means 'the way out'. It was seen as encoding the teachings about the initiates spiritual path back to God." [From the book 'Jesus and the Lost Goddess' by T. Freke and P. Gandy].

N.B. Recall the 'river' that once crossed - is where ''Solomon's Temple'' was 'built'. Think on it - relative to such books as 'A Test of Time'.

Most also imply that ones personnel journey especially B-C is ‘best done’ as a ‘community effort’. The collective one. As represented by those three ‘Plugs’ in the ascending passage of the Great Pyramid. Symbolic of something learned. In the positive sense..and now put to use. With this in mind all the characters have persons who they wish to seek out. ’Deceased’ friends / relations e.t.c. All contribute to all the results. The collective effort, which if you think about it has again a certain logic to it. Who else would you go looking for in a strange environment other than persons who you think are already there. Who hopefully know the answers to those anticipated questions about that brand new yet strange environment, i.e., its ‘daily’ purpose etc.

As represented by those three granite ‘plugs’ in that most famous pyramid. They were not put there as some have suggested to stop persons gaining entry or similar theories. One would have been sufficient. Each one is symbolic of each pharaoh and/or those three universal principles. The ‘chipped’ one at the top represents Khufu and/or the importance of ''will''. Not complete = ‘chipped’. [Purposely done, ‘Pyramid of secrets’ / A. Alford]. He represents the ‘apprentice’. An individual still in the learning process. Another indication of same is ‘Knee’ symbology, i.e., Supplication, [ ‘Out of the shadows’./M.Palmer].

Side note. Around those three plugs were found 'girdle-stones'. What do they represent?

"The role of Poseidon is not so straight forward, and it may eventually be shown to have more than a single strand, but it is the epithets such as 'Earth-encircler' or 'Earth girdler' commonly applied to him that concerns us now. He takes part in similar astronomical activities to gods who are more readily  associated with planets. These include Poseidon 'covering' or assuming the form of mortals {i.e.,as friend of mankind} - events that indicate the occultation or temporary obscuring of stars by a planet. Other phases create images of the rising and setting of Saturn, and its journey across the heavens in company - or in conjunction - with other planets. For these reasons Poseidon has been assigned to the planet known in later history as Saturn...In the course of the Iliad, gods - representing planets - assume the voices or characters of mortals {stars}. In this way, Homer records a phenomenon known as occultation, when the moon or a planet journeying across the sky passes in front of celestial objects that are further away, such as stars or outer planets, and temporarily obscures them. It may be that total obscuration occurs only when a god assumes the body of a mortal; when a god assumes the voice of a mortal or is said to be helping him, this may indicate that the planet is only close to the personal star of the warrior concerned." ['Homer's Secret Iliad']. Together with...

''Poseidon {the Earth - girdler} = Saturn'' - Together with - ''Zeus consort, Hera is the moon, and four of the five planets visible to the naked eye are represented by his immortal children, the fifth being assigned to Poseidon." While recalling that such 'locations' as Judah within, say, the Hebrew culture {landscape? therefore South?} is also identified with 'Saturn' {'Homer's Secret Iliad'].

And/or: "As with all important alchemical stories, there are meanings within meanings in this account of Helvetius meeting with the mysterious adept...The reason why he so carefully recorded the time and date with the stranger was because of its astrological importance. In the 'forenoon' of that day, no fewer than five planets were in Capricorn, and Saturn - the ruler of 'lead', and the ruler of the alchemical process which transforms lead - was in the 'scholarly degree' of 21 Capricorn. Helvetius seems to be of the opinion that the operation of alchemy, like the operations of true Will, involves the whole 'cosmos' - that for true 'magic' to work, the Heavens and Earth must be in accord." ['The Zelator'].

All as a means...?

As is {but now from a different perspective}: "The strength figure is girdled and garlanded with a chain of 'red roses' and 'green leaves', these complementary colours indicating that passions should be held back at a safe distance from each other throughout our courses of consciousness. There are two roses in the garland, the number of Wisdom, and six in the girdle, the number of Beauty {which makes another likeness between this trump and temperance}. Nevertheless, there are four bunches of leaves sticking up from the garland on the head like horns, and horned figures have always stood for strength, while four is the number of Mercy on the Tree. Mercy with Strength. Just above the garland, two or three little dots represent bees attracted to the flowers, and the sweetness and strength symbology of the bee and lion are highly significant with this card." ['The Talking Tree' / W. Gray. Chapter Twenty].

Side note: ''{courses} of consciousness'' = Poseidon link? i.e.,Master of the Waters and/or Tamer of Horses. See it?

Hint, hint or would that be knock, knock?..."To be sure, 20 is not exactly interesting for mystical and magic pursuits, but on the other hand, it is extremely important in the formation of number systems. For the simple reason that the fingers and toes add up to 20, this number forms the basis for counting in many cultures. Among the Celts, for example, 40 is called two times 20. The Ainu in northern Japan have a very similar way of counting and express, for instance, 80 as 4 times 20, which corresponds exactly to the French 'quatre' {four} 'vingts' {twenty}. The Maya used to connect 20 with the solar deity just as in ancient Babylonia it was linked with Samash, the sun god. In Quiche, the Mayan writing system, the cipher for the number 20 is a human figure, and among the Hopi, a child is given a name on the twentieth day to become a real human {nickname?}. In medieval Christian exegesis, on the other hand, 20 was taken to point to man's realization of the 10 Commandments in act and intention, or else as a product of 4 times 5, that is the 5 books of the Pentateuch, which is the law, and the 4 Gospels, which mean grace..." ['Mystery of Numbers' / A. Schimmel}.

Question. In landscape symbolism in which quarter {'quatre'?} would the above be represented by - S/W or S/E or somewhere {along?} the 'middle' ground { as with Stonehenge?}.

Analogy {physical one?}: Or the Christian equivalent of ‘kneeling’, in relation to... wanting to understand a subject, [representational of]. Khufu is seen with one hand ‘on heart’...Only one hand on knee. As opposed to the other two, who are seen to be seated. [ ‘Throne’ symbolism ]. With both hands on both knees. One Palm inward,[left]. Representing...an awareness now made and especially understood through ’Supplication’, i.e., Hands on top of knees. Higher over lower, i.e., Hands belong to upper part. Knees to lower part. Thinking cap time.

More ‘adept’ than ‘apprentice’. A link to an interest in something. That over time; as with any interest; may develope into a greater interest. Represented in esoteric circles; with the word ‘Love', [ Sufi lore especially...and especially so...in relation to the understanding of the ‘divine’ bit and its relationship / relevance to each individuals ‘overall journey’ ]. Represented with that universal ‘love’ symbol. The heart. Or for a more practical example. Mr Brian Cox and his quote in relation to his own subject of interest. Physics..."Its hard but beautiful", ...unless of course, Mr Cox is referring to his obsession with 'helicopters'. He is a "chopper obsessive", is he not. Penile envy?

Analogy of same...Virgil in relation to 'intellect' {verses?} Beatrice in relation to 'intuition' of a {'higher' order?}, i.e.,eureka moments that take one into {higher?} realms/domains/altered states of 'knowledge' - regardless of subject. REPRESENTATIONAL OF. And/or PROCESS OF.

labyrinth

Hawawa. The guardian of the forest. Question. Why is the face drawn in such a form. Wrinkles? That link to Gog and Magog and finally [ a 'stage' further on] to the ''Guardian of the Gate.'' As a representation of something. Surah eighteen [translated by Yusuf Ali ] gives information on all the above. Clue. Lord of East and West [of which the figure of Alexander is only one possibility].

Same thing just a different subject, [ and fortunately for man/woman kind, not as difficult - as say Physics - hence the link to the 'Jesus' quote, i.e.,John xiv,6].

The word 'Beatitude' and its underlying meaning, another example. Explained elsewhere. ‘Heart’ being one of those archetypes / keys. Hence the link to the Egyptian "weighing of the heart". Something that was once 'gross', [Alchemy, use of], has the potential [through, ''understanding''],to become 'less gross'. Hebrew equivalent = 'unhewn', i.e.....

"There are two types of 'altar' mentioned in Scripture, namely, altars of sacrifice, and altars of witness. In the case of 'altars' of sacrifice strict commands were given that such were to be made of earth or stone, but if stone was used, it must be unhewn....no tool must be used...."for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou has 'polluted' it" [Exodus 20:24-25]. But in the case of altars of witness that were not for sacrifice no such instructions were issued. The altar of Isaiah 19:19-20 is clearly stated to be an altar of witness: "it shall be a sign and for a witness unto the lord"; hence there is nothing to prevent it being built of hewn stone". [ Book one, chapter three, 'Pyramidology', by A. Rutherford].

"The symbol of the lower will is the altar".

"In one story this process of increasing limitation is envisioned as a cosmic cow standing with each leg in one quarter of the world; with each age that passes a leg is lost, resulting in the absurd and unstable world we live in today - a cow balancing on one leg. According to the information in the Laws of Manu, the morning and twilight periods between the dawn of each new era equal one tenth of there associated yuga..." [from the book by J. Jenkins].

Egyptian equivalent: "...the UNfired brick mastabas with facades composed of recesses and projections, characteristic of the First Dynasty, discovered at Saqqara not far from the pyramid of Zoser." [Extract from the book by L. Lamy].

Saqqara - near the apex of the Nile Delta - ''UNfired'' therefore; a representation of something associated with it. Question. What? Question 2. What would 'fired' be represented with?

Clue. What does the Step Pyramid represent?

Indian {counter culture? i.e.,from a different perspective} - analogy..."When the Bose institute was opened, i attended the dedicatory services. Enthusiastic hundreds strolled over the premises. I was charmed with the artistry and spiritual symbolism of the new home of science. Its front gate is a centuried relic from a distant shrine. Behind a lotus pool, a sculptured female figure with a torch conveys the Indian respect for women as the immortal light bearer. A small temple in a garden is consecrated to the Noumenon beyond phenomena. Thought of the divine incorporeity is suggested by the absence of any altar image." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'. Chapter Eight].

'Shadow' in relation to light [anima?]. UNhewn / hewn? {and/or sarsen / blue stones?}. S/W in relation to S/E?

"The rough cubic stone is the symbol of the beginning of the material creation. The polished stone is the symbol of the work [in progress. This readers input]...on the path of return." [Extract taken from the book by J. Dubuis]. Put ''cube'' in the box.

Pagan equivalent, 'giants' within the landscape, in relation to learning something, from a 'wild-man' start. [i.e., 'lower']. Sumerian equivalent = Enkidu, in relation to Gilgamesh, i.e.,..."One day at a watering hole used by gazelles, this trapper [hunter] saw a strange, wild, hairy man, and he watched as this ape - like creature drank then ambled off in the company of the gazelles". [Chapter 15, 'The Sacred History'].

Together with..."And Enkidu is the strong hairy wild man who endured a trial of 'strength' against Gilgamesh and became his 'companion' after their wrestling match". .......That is now through an awareness, less 'gross'. "Enlightened". Hence the same link to Jacob [Old Testament] |"he who wrestled with god", from which he became 'Israel'. "He who struggles [key] with god".

Common parlance...to 'wrestle' or 'submit' to ones own conscious',[and/or ''higher self''] i.e.,relative to lower / higher. Understanding that simple sentence defines both the Hebrew and Muslim religions, i.e.,to wrestle or submit to ones 'higher' self. Benefit of. It also defines the true meaning of the word ''teacher'' of the Essenes. Proving the viability of the subject and its possible relevance to each individual. As it does with...

...'Mighty conch's' blown on ''the holy plain, on the field of Kuru'', who were ''gathered together eager for battle''. [ 'First Discourse' of the book 'The Bhagavad Gita' {The Lord's Song, i.e.,higher over lower or at least; with that potential 'in sight'}.

Understanding the 'hidden' meaning behind such words [KEYS] as 'gazelle' in relation to other associated words such as 'small', 'swift', 'horned' and especially there ability to 'leap', all in relation to a 'water' hole,[ and in the Egyptian case, 'its' association with the desert / 'wilderness'] gives clues not only as to its intended purpose with the reader in mind, but also as to why each animal is a representation of certain 'aspects'. Within those positive and negative parameters, [in relation to the 'Gilgamesh' story].

Another example of same could be the cave art of same, as found in the South West 'corner' of Egypt's ancient boundaries, as speculated upon in the book, 'Black Genesis'. As a 'further' head scratcher....Why is a 'robber' or 'thief' [ Valmiki] selected to tell the story of Rama. The 'hero' of the archaic Indian civilization. Or 'milk maids' in relation to the Krishna story. Or a 'trapper' [hunter] relative to Gilgamesh and 'Enkidu'? Or Perceval raised to be a 'forester'. [Full details of each, will be found in such works as 'The Sacred History']. Clue. A representation of something, outside of the obvious.

"...Gone was the sorrow of parting. The pity and grief for his death, long robber of my peace, now fled in stark shame. [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi' . Enlarged elsewhere].

"...that the thief is richer than the one who is robbed." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way'].

"The practice of 'chastity' holds fast the leanings of the 'hunter' in the human being, of which the male side [shadow or anima?] is inclined to pursue game and the female side [same question] to set 'traps'. The practice of 'poverty' binds the tendencies of the 'thief' in the human being , where the male side is inclined to seize and the female side to keep indefinitely, instead of waiting for the free gift of the merited fruit of work. The practice of 'obedience', lastly rivets the will to..." [Taken from the book by Tomberg - 'letter5']. Hermetic doctrine equivalent of those three universal 'aspects' [see Part one] that one has to employ in order to understand ANYTHING. Represented as chastity; poverty and obedience - in order to define something relative to higher/lower. Try ''gift''.

Question. A conspiracy [theory?] over thousands of years? Lets wrestle with it further to define the parts within the whole BEFORE those first impressions keep themselves [and all other 'associated' parts/aspects] in the lower half...i.e.,

"A true scientist is an OBJECTIVE man - sober and open to all experience or new thought. The fact that true scientists are as rare as saints does not at all alter the fact that it is they who represent science. Because it is not the sick and deformed who represent a family, but rather its healthy members. Now true science is the discipline of objectivity, sobriety and diligence or, in other words, the discipline of the vows of 'obedience', 'chastity' and 'poverty'. For one cannot be diligent if one is not poor; richness always entails idleness. One cannot be sober without having a dislike for all that intoxicates; and this is chastity. Lastly, one cannot be objective without obedience to experience and the strict rules of research. It is by virtue of the practice of these three sacred vows that science makes true progress. Thanks to this practice it advances in the direction of depth, i.e., into the same domain as Hermeticism. " [Taken from 'letter 8' of the book by Tomberg].

That internalization [i.e., to 'wrestle'] that we all do to define something. Representation of. Question. A figment of the imagination since the dawn of human experience?

Gilgamesh equivalent = now went in search ['together', with his new 'mate', indicative of the 'lower'] for his 'higher' self. Represented as the 'plant of eternal life'. The beginning of that journey, [which started on the 'eleventh' tablet. Think about it, in relation to twelve and thirteen]...represented as the 'unconscious',i.e.,Cedar trees/wood. Of whom the main 'character' = Huwawa. Representing ''the guardian at the gate''. As does the Crete equivalent, the 'Minotaur' [i.e.,in part].

[Notice the 'Labyrinth', for a 'face'. Think about it ,relative to what 'it' represents, relative to an understanding. Chapter four. 'The Sirius Mystery'].

Quran equivalent...'submission' to god, in relation to the Quran. 'Higher' self found, within it. Hermetic equivalent as explained by Francis Bacon..."Gross matter...is the nutriment of bodies , and spirit is the nutriment of souls. But besides these, there is mind, which is the gift of heaven. [Think about it, in relation to the 'divine bit' ]. "By the light of mind, the human soul is illumined ". 'That which is 'lost' has now the potential to be found'. Relative to the candidate and/or reader. Freemasonry equivalent. Explained elsewhere.

''Wise men make more opportunities than they find." [Francis Bacon]. Quote used in the address to the 'Westminster locals' {Oct 2015] by the Chinese President Mr Xi Jinping.

Sufi equivalent..."For the more one takes off the coarse clothing of this world, the more one feels the warmth of 'ones creator', and the closer to the 'surface inner' one becomes. Closeness to the truth, is in relation to the amount of false materially one has thrown away. In giving away ones 'multiple aspects', one comes closer to the only truth." [Chapter one, 'The Secret of Secrets'. Emphasis, this readers]. Put ''garment'' in the usual box.

"...nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known." [Matthew X, 26].

"There is a state in which all and everything is gathered - and it is the 'Divine' wisdom." [Quote by Muhammad. Same chapter, same book], i.e.,"The purpose of the 'spirits' coming to this lowest of created realms is that it should seek to return to its 'previous' closeness......."and in accordance with general laws, by following certain steps can return to ones origin."[ Chapter one and two {first page} same book].

"....My life you can take, my integrity never, he replied, before one of the ruffians felled him with a single blow to the head. Just before he died Hiram was able to toss the golden triangle down a well. And that is how the Word came to be lost. As we shall see the quest for the lost Word, is like the quest for the Holy Grail, intimately tied up with the mysteries of human physiology."[ Chapter 18, 'The Sacred History'].

Side note: "This story indicates the preservation, within the Mystery Temples and secret brotherhoods during thousands of years, of the secret of the Trinity, the ''golden Triangle''. It is a reminder that there are three 'higher' {principles?} of thinking/feeling and willing...and in preparation for it, men looked forward to a time when the knowledge of the spirit would no longer be at variance with the ''sons of fire'' who build up the physical sciences. The element that unites them must be another kind of 'fire': incarnate love {i.e.,''grace'' link}. But in order to comprehend this fully, man must know the secrets of the ''seven metals'', that is, of his evolution. It is the crowning work in building of the 'Temple'." ['The Flaming Door' from the chapter entitled 'The Three and the Seven'].

Those 'metals' in relation to the Raft of El Dorado. Anything? Enlarged elsewhere.

Compare to "In the beginning was the word, and the word was with 'god', and the word was god." i.e.,two 'meanings' on the same 'pole' relative to a start and END point. That link to Oak Island. Purpose of. Explained elsewhere. As a side note, it is worth noting, that if anything of substance is found on Oak Island, it will be a representation of that ''golden triangle.'' Recall the quote made by F. Bacon.

A side step: Represented {in part} in the Egyptian case as with a 'feather', or as at Stonehenge with the 'Blue' stones. As opposed to the Sarsen ones, [ 'gross' equivalent ]. The Egyptian 'weighing [key] of the heart' ceremony that was led by Anubis the dog/jackal 'god'. Its equivalent in the night sky being Canis Major [The Dog], the interpretation of which, is related to the word 'weight'....i.e., "as the star seems to rise with difficulty from the horizon". [Chapter three. 'The Sirius Mystery'. R.Temple]. Think about it, in relation to... ascending / descending and/or positive over negative.

Represented within higher / lower, [Anubis]. The reason for the difference in size between, head and body of the Sphinx. Symbolism only. Benefits of, in relation to the observer and/or reader, through an 'understanding'.

That ''weight'' [Alchemy equivalent 'gross'], represented in ALL cultures with very large blocks of stone. 'Tons' of stone. Understanding that gives a more balanced appraisal of the following....

"Why specify temples built out of unwieldy 200 ton blocks when it would have been much easier, much more feasible and just as aesthetically pleasing, to use smaller blocks of say two or three tons each? There are really only two answers. Either the people who designed these hulking edifices had knowledge of some technique that made it easy for them to quarry, manipulate and position enormous pieces of stone, or their way of thinking was utterly different from our own.....in which case their motives and priorities are unlikely to be fathomable in terms of normal cross - cultural comparisons." [Chapter 3, page 31, 'The Message of the Sphinx' by G. Hancock and R. Bauval].

Analogy of same..."It is the spiritual seed implanted in the soul of man, through whose growth immortal life is attained. Its light is the rose of the cross that is formed by wisdom and power, being joined together into one and sending its influence through the world. But below all is the realm of illusion, of the most gross and heavy materialized thoughts, sinking into darkness and death [chaos]...." [Extract taken from the book 'Magic: White and Black' by F. Hartman].

Think on it relative to the word 'gravity'. Or an example of the similar concept, but in a different form, could be the nine coffins found in Tutankhamuns tomb. Large wooden ones, together with the smallest being the golden one. While recalling what 'wood' and 'stone' represent. A 'development' one stage further...relative to an understanding...in that inner sense...of the 'word'.

That same link to... 'Unconscoius came a Beauty' / C.Helminshi ]. Especially in relation to the ’feminine principle’...i.e., Shulamite / Nefertiti. Think about it... in relation to the meaning of ‘Nefertiti’. in relation to the word ’Beautiful’. Look it up. Rather than giving in to those first impressions and leaving it to ‘later’. Or putting it to ‘one side’. That final link to J. Campbell quote about a symbol being "energy evoking" in relation to a final destination.

Notice the triangular shape of left / right shoulder together with the head. Recall its relationship with the word Pyr...amid.

We are All apprentices looking to find our way from A to C, [implied by the same authors. ’subconsciously’ or otherwise ]. Represented in the night sky as ‘Orion The Hunter’, of whom Poseidon was the 'father'. The word 'hunter' and 'giant' associated with same [both key words], of whose head it is said is always above the seas when ever he decides to walk within it. The 'club' , 'indestructible' and made of 'bronze', [key].

Side note {'side light'?}. Poseidon whose domain {'master'} was Atlantis. Question. What does it represent relative to the whole i.e.,subject material.

Those three notable stars, always show/point North. Think on it, i.e.,relative to Sirius. The beginning or 'dawning' of something. Those three stars ‘under his belt’. Representing a certain accomplishment, [explained within]. Sometimes shown, [depending on author]...with the ‘Hare’ symbol close by. Indicative of an understanding of...In relation to ‘its’ purpose. In the context / concept of a ‘journey’. Both inner and outer, [ Micro/Macro. [Keys].

Why the Hare? Symbology as previously mentioned is just a generalisation of the main theme. The construction of say a boeing 747 is a good example. We understand the general idea of how that plane, [main theme], is put together; in comparison say; to an indigenous tribe of the rain forest-who may see it as something created by the ‘gods’- but we do not understand exactly; what those specifications are that put it all together. Nor do we need to know in order to intake that general idea.

That generalization helps to build a foundation on which an understanding of a subject can be formed. [Explained throughout]. As it is with any subject. Past present or future. Which again has a certain logic to it.

Whatever we learn, regardless of what it is that is learned..then sooner or later 'it' becomes ‘intuitive’ does it not? This subject is no different. The only difference is; according, [implied] by the same authors; is that this subject, unlike most others is not just relevent in [A]. It helps with A-C, [should B and C exist of course]. Remember objectivity at all times. To understand the subject. Nothing more.

"The prerogative of the human race is objectivity, the essential content of which is the Absolute. There is no knowledge without objectivity of the intelligence; there is no freedom without objectivity of the will; and there is no nobility without objectivity of the soul. In each of these three domains, it is a question of both a horizontal and vertical objectivity". [First page, first chapter..."Esoterism as Principle and Way"/ F.Schuon].

A working example..."Regarding this new point of awareness which is the birth of the observing I, this is the baby step of a new state of being, one that will lead to the ability to live in the presence with detachment, peace, independence of outer circumstances, freedom from distorted and imitated habits." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way]. Continued elsewhere.

Try ''child'' to see it from a different perspective.

Question. Copy cats?

Analogy of same..."Likewise the phases of development during which a Great Entity [explained / enlarged elsewhere] organises itself are internal and therefore subjective. They are not carried out under the stimulus of sensations derived from external conditions, but under the stimulus of feelings arising from internal conditions, [objective link. This readers input]... and the phase corresponding to the phase of existence which a human soul passes through between death and birth." [ 'incarnation'/ 'reincarnation' link]. Chapter 8, 'The Cosmic Doctrine'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"In research work it is usually considered to be wiser to hunt up the facts then think out the implications for oneself. Afterwards one can compare results with the standard authorities, and then decide upon ones attitude. In dealing with the great myths such as those of Isis and Osiris, or with the ancient 'sun' and 'moon' myths, the student cannot as a rule follow this method in its entirety. In all cosmic myths there are at least two aspects to be considered, the sensible and the intelligible meanings. In applying a cosmic myth to the microcosm [man], there are also two aspects which have to be taken into account, the objective and the subjective. One must know something of both these aspects before one can realize the implications of the facts one has collected." [Chapter 5, from the book by C. Seymour].

"...the 'nails' of objectivity - which give conscience to thought."

The symbol of which is the Crown of Thorns, i.e.,"The 'thorns' of the crown center function as the 'nails' of objectivity..." [Taken from 'letter 5' from within the book by Tomberg].

"But what is the difference between objective and subjective states of existence? ...The popular idea is that objective perceptions are real and subjective ones only the products of our imagination. But a little reflection will show that all perceptions, the objective as well as the subjective ones, are the results of our ''imagination." [Quote from the book by F. Hartman].

Exercise. Put all the above together to encrypt the following. Or put another way the paragraph below 'explains' [summarizes] all the above.

" The first power that meets us at the threshold of the souls dominion is the power of the imagination: it is the plastic and creative power of the mind. Man is conscious of being able to receive ideas and to put them into forms. He lives not entirely in the objective world, but possesses an interior world of his own. It is in his power to be the sole autocrat in that world, the master ['higher' link] of its creations and lord over all it contains. He may govern there by the supreme power of his will, ['three aspects' link] and if ideas intrude, which have no legitimate right to exist in it, it is in his power either to drive them away or suffer them to remain and to grow ['repetitive /groove' link]. His reason is the supreme ruler in that world, its ministers are the emotions, If mans reason, misled by the treacherous advise of the emotions,['lower' link] suffers evil ideas to grow, they may become powerful and dethrone reason, unless it employs the Will to suppress them...

...In that interior world is the battle ground ['The Bhagavad Gita' link] of the 'gods'. There the gods of love and hate , the daemons of lust, and pride, and anger, the devils of malice, cruelty, and revenge, vanity, envy, and jealousy, may hold high carnival, ['feast of fools' link] they may stir up the emotions, and, unless subdued by Reason,['higher' link] they may grow strong enough to de-throne it. Reason rests upon truth. Wherever truth is disregarded illusions appear. If we lose sight of the highest, the lower will appear to be the highest, and an illusion will be created. 'One' is the number of truth, 'six' is the number of illusion, because the six have no existence without the 'seventh', they are the visible products of the one, manifesting itself as six around the invisible center. Wherever there are six, there must be the seventh, although the presence of the latter, may not be manifest. One is the number of life, and six the number of shadows from which life has departed." [Chapter 6, 'Magic: Black and White' by F. Hartman].

Six = A + B. See it? Represented by the word ''shadow'' and/or 'UNmanifest'. Add the other 'thing' to it = C. Get it?

Question. Top - down or bottom - up OR both : as a means to express something.

Yet another analogy of same; different author; different time period..."And in order to be able to understand the phenomena of nature, according and not according to law, proceeding around us, one must first of all consciously perceive and assimilate a mass of information concerning objective truth and the [possible. This readers input]... real events which took place on earth in the past; and secondly, one must bear in oneself all the results of all kinds of voluntary and involuntary experiences." [Chapter 10, 'Meetings With Remarkable Men' by G. Gurdjieff].

Both of which ,i.e., objective/subjective have to be represented in some form for that understanding to take place i.e., the Micro within the Macro.

"...the 'nails' of objectivity - which give conscience to thought."

The symbol of which is the Crown of Thorns, i.e.,"The 'thorns' of the crown center function as the 'nails' of objectivity..." [Taken from 'letter 5' from within the book by Tomberg].

Remember; before those impressions take hold; that Christ himself was taught; by whatever means; the same subject - by the same methods?

As an example of such- One of the reasons for the chose of the hare is that Hares unlike rabbits rear there young on top of the ground which makes them more acutely aware of there surroundings. Eyes and ears and acute movements also contributing to the same theme. Others explained elsewhere.

First impressions might say...‘Sounds like a lot of superficial fluff’. So does;to some... the ‘two times table’ in relation to its relevant subject...as a whole- The mathematical one. We all understand the benefits of understanding the ‘parts’ that belong to the ‘whole’. [Key. Explained elsewhere]. Not just the bits/pieces that we are at ease with. Do we not. You could say..."You cannot compare this subject to the mathematical one" :-- No ones comparing anything. A subject after all is just another subject. Nothing else. Everything else including that question is within the context of each individuals imagination is it not. Represented by those first impressions. Yes or no?

"Fusion, inner unity, is obtained by means of 'friction', by the struggle between 'yes' and 'no' in man. If a man lives without inner struggle; if everything happens to him without opposition; if he goes wherever he is drawn or wherever the wind blows, he will remain such as he is. But if a struggle begins in him, and particularly if there is a definite line in this struggle, then, gradually, permanent traits begin to form themselves, he begins to 'crystallise'. Crystallisation is possible on any foundations." [Extract from the book by Tomberg. 'Letter Xiii' ]. Link to ''Temple'' symbolism.

Egyptian equivalent...Entitled: 'The Four Centers of Instruction', i.e.,How to describe the indescribable? How to show the unshowable? How to express the unutterable? {Eastern equivalent, ''effable/ineffable'' and/or ''manifest/unmanifest''}. How to seize the ungraspable instant? Before there was any opposition, any yes and no, positive and negative, before there was any complementary, high and low, light and shadow; before there was presence or absence, life or death, heaven or earth; there was but one incomprehensible power, alone, unique, inherent in the Nun, the indefinable cosmic sea, {Hebrew equivalent ''Ain Sof''}, the infinite source of the universe, {i.e.,representational of. ONLY} - outside of any notion of space and time. This vision of the original unity was common to every period and initiatory center, i.e., Heliopolis, Memphis, Hermopolis and Thebes. The great mystery is the passage from invisible into visible, {and/or ''manifested'' - as one alternative example} to be realised by the power which from the incomprehensible One { ''divine bit'' link} will call forth the many. The first impulse {''primordial mound'' link - in the ''micro'' sense of the ''word''} - is a projection of the inner desire {''aspiration/inspiration'' link} of the creator-to-be {i.e.,each individual - also UNbeknown by most as the ''demiurge''} - to know himself { i.e.,from that ''unmanifested/ineffable'' point of view} - to realise his own consciousness {i.e.,and/or ''manifested/effable'' - ONCE realised- representational of}. This originating 'power' is symbolised by the heart, and the act of projecting by an arm that throws, or the drawn bow about to let fly its arrow, or the boomerang which returns after having reached its goal. The result is the 'Becoming', expressed hieroglyphically by the scarab, Khepri,i.e.,its three essential phases - egg, larva and nymph, before realising its final winged form. [Extract from the book 'Egyptian Mysteries'. Mentioned elsewhere. All emphasis, this readers].

Understanding the above, especially...''How to seize the ungraspable instant...'' defines the following....

three hares 2

The three of anything. What does it imply? Whether they be Figs; Bees; Hares; Elephants or Legs/feet [Isle of Man logo]. All a link to those other triple aspects as enlarged throughout; especially, Part 1. Clue - ''knock three times''. Hear anything?

The hare is also one of Jungs archetypal symbols, [and therefore one of those key words i.e., used throughout all cultures] , as expressed no more so plainly, yet eloquently, in Mr leyards book or Colin Wilsons book, [explained elsewhere]. Simply put, such archetypes according to Jung have been used unconsciously by man/woman since the dawn of humankind. Supposedly all our ‘dream’ symbolism, { ‘Altered states’ link; most fundamental level, i.e., in this case in the unconscious sense of the 'word'}, originates from this time. Each individual unknowingly expresses the same symbols in their unconscious state of mind and dreams as alternative expressions to their waking day to day life.

The question is...If this esoteric lore has any substance to it. What would that imply; if only hypothetically, to the origins of such archetypes? Or more to the point...how they may be 'created'. Relative to each individual, unconscious or otherwise.

Analogy of same, i.e.,with the same intent..."Tarot cards were merely pictorial representations of the same forces shown in the plays and songs, and told the same eternal story. Possibly the pictures were at one time related to the old oral tradition of worship, as were the Icons used in Eastern Christianity. The pagan worship-system was banned and suppressed, so the images passed into the folk tradition. Only in recent years have the Tarot emerged from anonymity into the clamour of 'occultism', where writers and practitioners forget that no 'secret' body of knowledge is required to account for the images present in the mind of mankind, and that 'magical' orders were open for all in folk-song and ceremonies throughout the centuries." [Taken from the book 'Where is Saint George'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"...Apollo's gift of 'prophesy' first came to him from three bee maidens..." [Wikipedia/''bee''].

"Often the symbols which arise in the dreams and phantasies are strikingly similar to those of the old mystery religions, and the outcome in the psychological development for the individual corresponds to the change which the initiation was said to produce." [Preface to the book 'Women's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"According to Jung, a spontaneous vision such as Vladimir Solov'ev [ in relation to his 'visions' of Sophia] represents the surfacing of a primordial archetype. The archetype as such allows the human being a premonition of the 'divine' and becomes a symbol by which the unconscious is brought to the conscious." ['Alexandria' Vol one, by D. Fideler].

"...but the wisdom of the ages, represented in myths and religious symbols, has without doubt a larger vision, a longer range, than that of any individual. If we can understand its teaching aright, they can be taken with a certain justification as a guide, in the sense of a signpost, which might point the way for us as for our predecessors." [Preface 'Women's Mysteries'].

"Happy is the poet who has not lost faith in the feminine shadow of the Divinity." Quote by Solov'ev. Same book.

"Alchemy IS philosophy; it is the philosophy - the seeking out of The Sophia in the mind." Quote by M. Atwood as to the definition of the Hermetic arts. Put ''Sophia'' in the usual box, if only to push through those first impressions.

Question. Coincidence? Or a meaningful one?

Understanding that universal framework [found in Parts two/three. Listed as 1-6] especially when understood by what is implied by the 'divine bit' defines all the above. Gives it a certain credibility. As it does with the following...

trident

'Tri' = triple link?

"The inner worlds are not truly within the imagination, although that is our first 'entrance' to them; they are within the fabric of the physical planet, [Alchemy defines that 'fabric' as quintessence], and therefore within the human organism which partakes of the substance of that fabric. To create a connection, a pattern within the flux of perception that corresponds with an Archetype that originated within that unknown source, is the ultimate achievement of 'magic.' '' [i.e.,the getting the head around ''it,'' by way of ''a leap of the imagination'': to bridge those 'voids' of unknowing in order for something to become a known. This readers input]. Extract taken from chapter 2, 'The Underworld Initiation' by R. Stewart.

"Magic is not an art or science that depends on literacy or numeracy, for it is generated at levels of awareness that both precede and transcend these functions. The magical levels of awareness, which are the transformative levels, are present both in the individual and in a culture generally." [Same book]. Put ''magic'' in the usual box before those first impressions suggest to the 'higher' self to put it off 'for the time being' or 'leave to one-side'.

'The Underworld tradition, is known as the Secret Way Across the Abyss, or the shortened way. It does not require years of study or graded initiation. It is a series of related experiences....'' [i.e.,the ritual stuff]. Same chapter, same book.

This web page is all about the SLOW BUT SURE WAY. What some call the Hearth Fire Way. Enlarged elsewhere. Understand this subject [by way of those universal keys] gives the same result. N.B. Slow not ''shortened''. There is a difference...and according to some more beneficial, i.e.,see Chapter/ ''letter'' 21; entitled ''The Fool''. From the book 'Meditations on the Tarot' by Tomberg.

'As steps in mans awakening'...

i.e., "The Arcanum ''The Fool'' teaches the 'know how' of passing from intellectuality, moved by the desire for knowledge, [personnel use only] to the higher knowledge due to 'love' [i.e.,sharing]. It is thus a matter of transition from the consciousness that theosophical literature calls ''lesser manas'' to the consciousness that it calls ''greater manas'' - which corresponds to the transition from ego consciousness to the consciousness of the 'spiritual' self in anthroposophical literature." Representational of.

Understanding same defines such paragraphs as ... "Personal experiences and confidences from companions on the Path confirm that there are two key attributes of this level. The first is the 'conversation' with the 'inner master'. He can directly give us the instructions concerning our own Return in Eternity. To symbolically illustrate this conversation, the ''Sepher Yetzirah'', the Book of Creation, says that the ''small king must rise from his throne so that the Great King can talk to him''. In other words, the brain of the earth must be silent to understand the advice from the inner heart." [Extract taken from the book by J. Dubuis]. Link to the word ''teacher''.

Analogy of same principles but [heavy going?] - "This means to say that the process of induction [which 'ascends from the earth to heaven'] and that of deduction [which 'descends to earth' ] -i.e.,human endeavor and the action of grace from above - unite and become a complete circle which contracts and concentrates to become a point where the 'ascent' and 'descent' are simultaneous and coincide. And this point is the ''philosophers stone'' [crossover point?. This readers input] - the main principle of the human and 'divine' - it is the solution of the problem posed by St. Paul, or rather the accomplishment of the task given by him, when he wrote of the Cross, being folly to the Greeks, and a stumbling block to the Jews, but to which to ''those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, is the 'power' of God and the wisdom of God" [1 Corinthians i, 22-24]. Extract from the book by Tomberg. 'Letter 21'.

In other words nothing more than making a distinction between exo. and esotericism.

That same link to the book, 'Proof of Heaven' by Eben Alexander. Multiple images [archetypes] experienced while in a coma. Those same images as seen and spoken about in multiple cultures throughout countless generations. What the Hebrews refer to as ''keys'' and others as ''signs'' in one form or another. Question. Nothing more than a psychotic event? Or dream 'symbolism? Compare to 'The Believing Brain: From Spiritual Faiths to Political Convictions. How we Construct Beliefs and Reinforce Them as Truths' by Michael Shermer.

"What is decisive for me is that i dream about physics as Mr. Jung [and other non-physicists] think about physics. Every time i have talked to Mr. Jung [about the ''synchronistic'' phenomenon and such], a certain spiritual fertilization takes place." Wolfgang Pauli.

images[3]Analogy of same..."It is argued in this course, i.e.,'The Alchemical Amphitheatre' - that although there may be little case for the entirety of alchemical pursuits to be other than coded references to physical transformations, a number of alchemists themselves testified to the psychological elements of their business through dream and vision. Indeed contemporary chemists have benefited from this dialogue of practical work and imagination. Friedrich August Kekule von Stradonitz [1829-1896], who discovered the structure of the Benzene molecule is in this lineage of chemists who have worked in dreams,i.e.,'I was sitting writing in my text book, but the work did not progress; my thoughts were elsewhere. I turned my chair to the fire and dozed. Again the atoms were gamboling before my eyes. This time the smaller groups kept modestly in the background. My mental eye, rendered more acute by the repeated 'visions' of the kind, could now distinguish larger structures of manifold conformation - long rows sometimes more closely fitted together all twining and twisting in snake like like motion. But look! What was that? One of the snakes had seized hold of its own tail, and the form whirled mockingly before my eyes. As if by a flash of lightening i awoke; and this time i spent the rest of the night in working out the consequences of the hypothesis." [Extract from the book by M. Katz].

"When the value represented by the symbol has been entirely explored and made conscious its power leaves it, and the object which held the meaning of the symbol becomes only a natural object once more. But while its 'power' lasts the symbol is the representative of an unknown truth. It rises spontaneously from the depths of the unconscious and expresses or manifests the hidden fact in an image whose meaning can only be partly grasped by consciousness." [Chapter 6, 'Women's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Think about in relation to what the word 'incarnation' implies. Found within.

"We do not as yet, have a theory about consciousness. We need it." A quote by the same,[in principle, [Mr. Shermer] not exact]. BBC World Service [ 'Heart and soul' ] 18th October 2014.

This subject however has... from its origins to the present day. Explained throughout.

"The no-mans land between Physics and the psychology of the Unconscious [is] the most fascinating yet the darkest hunting ground of our times." Carl Jung.

Question. Within this subject, who or what is used to represent that mental aspect of ''to hunt'' ...for something. Question two. Why? Try ''something'' in the usual box.

"There is an idea so central in Swedenborg's psychological spiritual findings that to grasp it is to grasp the real basis of mind, or human experience and the nature of the worlds we are destined to experience beyond this one. This idea revolves around the concepts of love, affection and feeling."[ Chapter 5, 'The Presence of Other Worlds'].

In other words if ‘B’ is a priority over ‘A’, [being an alternative expression to the hypothesis given earlier i.e., "You cant have one without the other...but one has to come before the other." [ In relation to an understanding of the ''divine bit'' WITHIN THAT FRAMEWORK of A/B/C...in relation to the 'self' [always represented within this subject; in one form or another; as the 'psyche']. Then another way of expressing the same could be... ‘A’ can be ‘influenced’ by ’B’ and/or ’C’. Think about it. In relation to cause/effect and ‘synchronicity’. That same link to "Like attracts like". Possibilty of. That logic again. Is-nt life a ‘bummer’ sometimes? i.e., a ‘struggle’.[Key]. Dont forget those first impressions.

As it is with those constant struggles between 'gods' and their 'relations'. Incestuous? Think about it, in relation to the psyche. An individual one. ['The marriage of Cadmus and Harmony' by Roberto Calasso]. Or 'Mythology' by E. Hamilton. Or 'Concerning the Gods and the Universe' by Sallustius.

"The transmission and interpretation of myths constituted not only one of the highest arts of the ancient world, but also, as the theological canon of Greek gematria shows, a sacred science as well. It is sadly representative of our time that the word myth, in common usage, denotes an untruth, as in the phrase, ''its just a myth.'' In antiquity, the word 'mythos' had just the opposite meaning and denoted a traditional narrative designed to entertain, to educate, and to transmit the very soul and gnosis of the culture."................"Therefore, if we are to gain insight into the nature of the 'gods' [those divine principles, that underlie creation] a particular instructive approach involves the philosophical interpretation of myth." [Chapter one, 'Jesus Christ Sun of God'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Hermetic analogy..."The forces do not work upward from below, but downward from above. The things in 'heaven' receive no benefits from the things on earth; but the things on earth receive all benefits from the things in 'heaven'.['Giordano Bruno and the Hermetic Tradition', or Chapter nine. 'The Master game.'/Hancock+Bauval].

This really is a story that has never been told before, and if there is the possibility of any substance to this esoteric lore then maybe it needs to be at the very least discussed. Just in case domain [B] does exist and we find ourselves in it. We need more options to think about, other than what most of us have been taught. As proven by such books as ‘Survival Files’ /M.Allen, or even the example given in 'The Jolly Green Giant' by D. Bellamy.

Think about it...Purely as an imaginary exercise. If ‘B’ did exist. What would you expect? There has to be 'reason' to it, should it 'exist'. Every thing has reason to it, this 'subject' cannot be any different. Therefore what could those 'reasons' be. What could those possibilities be?...Without thinking/discussing such possibilities. How could we expect anything. Hence the link to the word, Limbo. What better word to describe... an ‘unknown’ state of mind...and its possible consequences.

Maybe this information is that lost knowledge that we are told the ancients had worked out but that which modern man and woman due to present life's commitments have not had the time or patience to rediscover? A subject that if pigeon holed and slotted in its ‘appropriate’ hole would be placed in the ‘religious’ one. And yet this is a religion that is not a re-ligion. To understand only what some are trying to tell us, [by implication]. Without any ‘religious’ connotation /affectation . A personal journey for all. From A to C . Sense or non-sense. A possibility or not?

".... god rebuked Job for understanding so little. 'Where were you when i laid the foundations of the earth? When the Morning stars sang together and all the 'angels' shouted for joy. Have you entered the springs of the sea or walked the depths of the deep? Have the gates of death been opened to you? Do you know where the 'Sun' lives, and where the 'darkness' comes from? Can you bind the chains of Pleiades or loose the belt of Orion."[Job 29:2-4]. See anything?

That word 'religion', [re-ligare]...that has so many 'meanings'...so many 'interpretations' to different individuals. Its true meaning..."the act of binding together again," i.e., to re-connect , [introduction,and chapter six.'The Brotherhood of the Common Life' / R.Fuller]. The Exoteric, no less important than the Esoteric, [and vise versa]. They compliment each other... a symbiotic 'relationship' within the whole. One leads to the other, especially in relation to that acclaimed 'development'. Hence the link to the word 'binding'. Its most important aspect/word however, being the highlighted one. A link to the 'divine bit'. Think about it ...in relation to A/B/C and that 'potential' to each individual, 'by way' [path link] of an 'understanding' , [in their opinion 'by way' of implication]. A re-union within the whole.

"True religion is one; its dogma's are simple and within the reach of all." Quote by E. Levi.

"This is the eternal way, and no one can invent or find another. One can certainly divide it into 33 stages [Freemasonry link - to name but one] - or even into 99 [Islam link] - if one wished. One can re-clothe it in intellectual vestments, or beautiful and simple symbolism. One can present it in diverse terminology; Sanskrit, Kabbalistic, Greek, Latin, etc. But one will always have to do with the sole way - and always the same way - the way of purification, illumination, and union." [Extract from the book by Tomberg. Emphasis and parenthesis; this readers].

"O children of Adam. Indeed, we have given you garments to cover your 'nakedness',[key] and as a thing of beauty;...but the garment of of god-consciousness is the best of all. This is one of gods messages....that human beings might take it to heart". [Quran 7:26]

"All creative scientists know that the true laboratory is the mind, where behind illusions [puffers?] - they uncover the laws of truth." That link to the overall subjects main teaching aid. Can you see it yet?

''Purification'' in relation to pushing through into something new -to define it [by way of those three universal 'aspects' - as one has to apply in anything 'new', i.e.,as a representation of the 'mechanics' of a learning process. The Alchemists define that initial 'stage' as Calcination. ''Illumination'' explains itself, i.e.,something that one was ignorant of initially and/or 'disliked' for whatever reasons but now more 'sensitive' to it. ''Union'' - already explained - as above, i.e.,unlike most other subjects - this one has that 'extra' benefit to it - should that is - if the subject; and therefore its 'material' be relevant - and that - as already mentioned at the beginning of Part 1 - is for the reader to decide - ''that is there journey''. Defining however what they imply by the word ''divine'' - for countless generations - makes sense of that final sentence, i.e.,top/down in relation to bottom/up. Enlarged elsewhere.

"Human understanding has had its morning; its noon shall come, and the waning follow, but god will be ever the same." [E. Levi quote]. God = [as one example] - YHVH. Find it to understand it. Find the part to understand the whole.

What effect; if any; will that 'collective effort' have on 'its' surroundings? Its PHYSICAL surroundings.

And the Third Empire is awaiting those of us who can 'see' - that not only in Olympus [i.e.,top/down link], not only nailed to the cross [i.e.,bottom/up link] - but in our selves is god. For such of us, the bridge between flesh and spirit is built; for such among us hold the keys of life and death." [Extract from the book 'The Magister' by M. Katz.

The 'good' vibes that those inspirations and intentions will have on each generation. Question. What effect; if any; will that 'collective effort' have on 'its' surroundings?

That ''collective effort'' - by way of - what A. Crowley defines in the same chapter as a ''wordless Aeon''. Possibilities of.

Analogy with the same intent {that very first one?}: "He wrought also two cities, fair to see and busy with the hum of men. In the one were weddings and wedding feasts, and they were going about the city with brides whom they were escorting by torchlight from their chambers. Loud rose the cry of Hymen, and the youths danced to the music of flute and lyre, while the women stood each at her house door to see them. Meanwhile the people were gathered in assembly, for there was a quarrel, and two men were wrangling about the blood money for a man who had been killed, the one saying before the people that he had paid damages in full, and the other that he had not been paid. Each was trying to make his own case good, and the people took sides, each man backing the side that he had taken; but the heralds kept them back, and the elders sat on their seats of stone in a solemn circle, holding the staves in which the heralds had put into their hands. Then they rose and each in his turn gave judgement, and there were two talents laid down, to give to him whose judgement should be deemed the fairest."

SIDE NOTE: ''Herald'' - only mentioned once {in its original context } - in the Old Testament {i.e.,Daniel 3:4}. Recall what those numbers represent in relation to: '' Then the Herald loudly proclaimed - ' Nations of peoples of every language, this is what you are commanded to do - when you hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, lyre, horn, psaltery and all kinds of music, ye fall down and worship the golden image that the king hath set up'."  Together with..."The motive for setting up the image seems to be an attempt to unify the kingdom and promote the authority of the king {i.e.,in relation to the golden image of Nebuchadnezzar}. Various explanations have been given for the grotesque 'dimensions' of the image, 90 feet high and 9 feet wide. It may have represented the king physically, but could have been an obelisk. It could have been a distorted figure, {Akhenaten link?} or the height could have included a pedestal on which the image was set." [Notes on same {page 1274} 'The King James Study Bible'].

" The number 9 {i.e.,what the author defines as 'The Magnified Sacred Three'} - can be variously interpreted. At times, the purely negative aspect is stressed, thus by Petrus Bungus, who equates 9 with pain and sadness and points out that the ninth psalm contains a prediction of the 'antichrist'. The nine is again connected with suffering because of the fact that Christ died at the ninth hour of the day {from sunrise, i.e., 3pm}. This hour was the 'none', subsequently marked by a special monastic devotion, while the word itself has become our NOON...The nine muses have inspired many thinkers and writers; that is why Herodotus divided his work in 9 parts to honour them, and in this connection, it is not to far fetched to think of the Enneads, the '9 books' of Plotinus, whose Neoplatonic philosophy became an important ingredient in the development {hint, hint} of Jewish, Christian and Islamic 'mystical' thought. One is therefore also not surprised to learn that Plato, according to legend, died at the age of 9x9 = 81 years." ['Mystery of Numbers'. Most emphasis, this readers]. 90x9 = ?

Understand the parts {universal constants?} to define the whole, i.e.,''NOON'' in relation to: "The fact that Daniel is not mentioned may be explained in a couple of ways: he may have been busy elsewhere with administration affairs, or as a higher official may not have been required to attend the meeting." [Notes in relation to Daniel 3:12 'The King James Study Bible' - i.e.,"There are certain Jews whom thou hast set up over the affairs of the province of Babylon - Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego - These men O king, have NOT regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up"].  Together with...

"In some civilizations, 9 was seen in connection with the lunar phases. Thus in ancient Mexico, the cycle went from the ascending ash moon, the crescent, the first quarter, and the third octant to the full moon and then back to the descending ash moon. On the basis of these periodic movements, the whole cosmos was then divided into various 'layers'. 9 layers of a netherworld and 13 heavenly layers, with the earth located as a kind of intermediate zone. These 23 layers, plus the sacred number 5, connected with the ages of the world, yielded 28, which is the number of the moon. Thus, in Mexico 9 became a symbol of the netherworld, the earth, and - contrary to the traditions in Europe and Asia - the female {i.e.,'female' principle - this readers input}. Try ''23'' - in other words was Daniels 'absence' a coincidence or a meaningful one?

Understanding those universal keys {subject material?} - among other things - throws up such questions {insights?} -  as to Herodotus' possible original intention {method?} of presentation {format?} - of 'historical information'. As it does with the word 'Ash' in relation to ''Asherah'' and/or ''Ashtoreth'' . Just as Hera {moon link} does with the word ''hare''. All enlarged elsewhere. Try ''Ash tree''.

As it does with: "Finally, an etched rib bone was found with the human remains in Gough's cave, Cheddar {not far from Glastonbury}. Its markings consist of short strokes along the edges, often in groups of nine. The significance of this number in this context was debated for many years, but in 1989 five fragments of bone were found at the same site, all with similar grouping of incisions. The number in each group upon these varies from eight to fourteen, so it may be that the sets of nine strokes upon the first find were of no particular significance. Unless the carver {or carvers} were simply doodling, the incisions look like tallies. But whether of kills, or days, or moons, or something else, we cannot know." [From the book by R. Hutton].

Recall the 'ribs' within the Genesis story.

Continued {i.e.,Homer's Iliad}..."About the other city there lay encamped two hosts in gleaming armour...But the men of the city...armed themselves for a surprise; their wives and little children kept guard upon the walls, and with them were the men who were past fighting age {elder link?}, but the others sallied forth with Ares and Pallas Athene at their head - both of them wrought in gold and clad in golden raiment, great and fair with their armour as befitting gods, while they that followed were smaller. When they reached the place where they would lay their ambush, it was on a riverbed to which livestock of all kinds would come from far and near to water..."

"The first city is Sirius {authors hypothesis}, and Homer describes 'stars' in the northern part of Canis Major. The hum of men, wedding feasts, brides escorted by torchlight and youths dancing conjure up a busy image of the Milky Way to the east. Elders sitting in a circle of polished stone represent the circular pattern of stars surrounding Sirius...The second city is the 2nd brightest star in Canis Major, and here Homer turns his attention to the southern part, or rear legs, {i.e.,roots of tree link. Enlarged elsewhere.} - of the constellation. The appearance of Athene and Ares outside the zodiac is surprising, but they may be being compared with Sirius and Canis Major. In spite of Sirius now clearly being 'white', Ptolemy describes the star as being 'reddish', while Mirzam in Canis Major is also a white star. Homer may be comparing Sirius to Ares as the red planet Mars, and Mirzam to Athene as the planet Jupiter." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

The answer to those doubts {inner questions?} are more readily answered - if only for this reader -  when the question is asked as to why should Ares {pro Trojan} be depicted on the shield of none other than not only the 'greatest' warrior of the Greeks but within the story of the 'Fall of Troy' as a whole?  Answers more likely found within such key words as Janus {i.e.,'Sir Facing Bothways'} in relation to  'boundaries'; among others; 'red' as opposed to 'white' relative to north and south.

And/or: "Janus presided over the beginning and ending of conflict, and hence war and peace. The doors of his temple were open in times of war and closed in times of peace. As a god of transitions {boundaries?}, he had functions pertaining to birth and to journeys and exchange, and in his association with Portunus, a similar harbour and gateway god, he was concerned with traveling, trading and shipping. Janus had no flamen or specialized priest assigned to him, but the king of the sacred rites himself carried his ceremonies. Janus had a ubiquitous presence in religious ceremonies throughout the year, and was ritually invoked at the beginning of each one, regardless of the main deity honoured on any particular occasion. The ancient Greeks had NO equivalent to Janus, who the Romans claimed as distinctly their own." [Wiki/Janus].

''Harbour'' in relation to the Bay of Pegasus to 'see' something further. And/or ''flamen'' in relation to '15' {12+3}. Enlarged elsewhere.

Refresher: A 'working' example {i.e.,in relation to the intent of 'Janus' symbolism}: "...The principle reason for it is that it is impossible to sit between two stools {and/or throne?}. And people usually think that they can sit between two stools, that is, that they can acquire the new and preserve the old; they do not think this consciously of course but it comes to the same thing....G. once said that there was no sense in our going on any further in this way and that we ought to make a definite decision whether we wanted to go on with him, wanted to work, or whether it was better to abandon all attempts in this direction, because a half serious attitude would give no results whatever. He added that he would only continue to work with those who would make a definite decision to struggle with mechanicalness in themselves and with sleep. There is no sense in sitting between two stools - he had said. Whoever does not want to wake up, at least let him sleep well.''

SIDE NOTES: The vocabulary of ancient Roman religion was highly specialized. Its study affords important information about the religion, traditions and beliefs of the ancient Romans. This legacy is conspicuous in European cultural history in its influence on later juridical and religious vocabulary in Europe, particularly of the Western Church.

By the time of the religious reformation of Augustus, the origins and functions of many of the long-neglected gods resident in Rome was confusing even to the Romans themselves. The obscurity of some of the deities assigned a flamen (for example Falacer, Palatua, Quirinus and Volturnus) suggests that the office dated back to Archaic Rome. Many scholars [who?] assume that the flamines existed at least from the time of the early Roman kings, before the establishment of the Republic. The Romans themselves credited the foundation of the priesthood to Numa Pompilius, the second king of Rome. According to Livy, Numa created the offices of the three flamines maiores and assigned them each a fine robe of office and a curule chair {'stool'?}. The flamines were circumscribed by many taboos.

The origin of the word flamen is as obscure as are some of the assigned gods. Sophus Bugge suggested in 1879 that flamen is from an older fladmen and related to the Germanic blót. Both would be derived from a Proto-Indo-European word bhlad(s)men. Indo-Europeanist Georges Dumézil attempted to link it to the Sanskrit word brahman. This etymology is still controversial.

CONTINUED: It also gives clues {directions?} as to the following head scratch: "Homer then changes his mood, introducing scenes quite different from ANYTHING ELSE in the Iliad, using images of rural and town life as metaphors for individual stars, groups of brighter stars, dark parts of the sky with few stars, and also the Milky Way. As Hephaestus carefully constructs the shield, Homer is describing in detail, and section by section, the skies that became the home of the newly risen Sirius. That Homer considered Canis Major and its environs to be important is reinforced by the different ways he describes those stars in other parts of the Iliad. A difficulty in proposing this interpretation is that the precise boundaries of the constellations being described by Homer are not known. He does give some help {purposely?} - in as much as the 'codewords' {keys?} are used in this passage in the same way in which they are used elsewhere in the Iliad - particularly when the Milky Way is being described in rural terms. These codewords can evoke the multitude of pinpoints of 'light' in the Milky Way and include the 'wheatfields' and 'vineyards' in which 'swathe after swathe of harvest corn' is cut and 'grapes are grown on silver poles'. The Milky Way is also described as a 'porridge of white barley'. Groups of people such as heralds, dancing youths, reapers and binders indicate stars that stand out against the background of the Milky Way. More specific individuals such as judges, look outs, women at their doorways, the owner of the land, four cattle, nine dogs, a bull and two lions are suggested as brighter individual stars. Homer also mentions colours such as gold and silver, and these could be linked to yellow and white stars."  {'Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Follow the title of the book to see it in its broader {universal?} view.

Analogy of same {Micro, i.e.,bottom-up}-"...in the Book of the Dead, the term ''Sema [Snai] Tawi'' is used. It means ''Union'' of the two lands of Egypt.'' The two lands refer to the two main districts of the country, North and South, and in a mystical sense they refer to the gods Heru [the north] and Set [the south land]- who are elsewhere referred to as the spiritual Higher Self and lower self of a human being, respectively. Thus the term Sema Tawi is compatible with the Indian Sanskrit term ''Yoga,'' which also means union of the Higher Self and lower self ..." [Extract from the book by S. Ashby. Mentioned elsewhere]. Try ''meditation''. Benefit of, [if only] in relation - to subject material.

N.B. ''Higher'' = Vulture - Lotus - Reed or Su plant. ''Lower'' = Cobra - Papyrus - Bee. All as a representation of something.

Refesher: "It seems that the Aztecs sometimes called Venus Acatl. This latter meant 'reed -day', and was the name of the day on which the Venus cycle began. The deity who presided over the reed day was, Acatl, was the chief god of the pantheon Tezcatlipoca, whose name means 'Smoking Mirror'. ['The Zelator'].

'Reed' in relation to papyrus - and 'its' relation to 'words' {logos?} - defines what is implied when the Israelite's 'cross' over the {reed?} sea. Try ''gap'' and/or ''mirror'' and/or ''Venus'' to 'see' something other than the obvious - to continue that 'journey' of discovery. BEFORE those bigger questions are asked.

''Bee'' in relation to: "Why are you averse to organizational work?" Master's question startled me a bit. It is true that my private conviction at the time was that organizations are ''hornets'' nests. ''It is a thankless task, sir," I answered. "No matter what the leader does, or does not do, he is criticized."... "Do you want the whole divine channa {milk curd} for yourself alone?" My guru's retort was accompanied by a stern glance. "Could you or anyone else achieve God-communion through yoga if a line of generous-hearted masters had not been willing to convey their knowledge to others?" He added, ''God is the honey, organizations are the hives; both are necessary. Any form is useless, of course, without the spirit, but why should you not start busy hives full of the spiritual nectar?" His counsel moved me deeply. Although i made no outward reply, an adamant resolution arose in my breast: I would share with my fellows, so far as lay in my power, the unshackling truths i had learned..." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi' ].

''Unshackling'' in relation to Oxen yokes. Try ''yoke''.

"In a broad sense 'Yoga' is any process which helps one achieve liberation or freedom from the bondage to human pain and ignorance. So whenever you engage in any activity with the goal of promoting the discovery of your true self, be it studying the wisdom teachings, exercise, fasting, meditation, breath control, rituals, chanting, prayer, etc., you are practicing Yoga." [Extract from the book by S. Ashby].

"...discovery of your true self'' which includes the understanding of that universal concept [in their opinion] - the ''divine bit''. Regardless whether the ''Eastern'' Way or the ''Western'' Way or the Way of the READER [i.e.,objectively; as one does in any subject material. This web pages ''way'']. That understanding = the ''micro within the macro.'' = Journey symbolism. Understanding that {concept?} defines...

"Initiation refers to the transformation of man into something greater than he was before, an acquisition of new meaning through the realisation that he is more than dust and shadow." And...

"The aim of the journey is simply to experience existence as it actually is, prior to all interpretation, as an ongoing state of awareness."

Yet another but from a different 'start point'... "James Vogh has further explored the wider ramifications and influence of threads and cords. He draws attention to the sutra, a cord worn by high ranking Hindu's, and quotes the Upanishads: 'By Vayu, the inner controller, as by a thread, O Gautama, are this world, the other world, and all beings held together.' Vogh goes on to speak of the 'cinctura' of the Franciscans, the cord which binds them to their holy work, the llatu, a cord said to protect the life of the Inca emperor, and the Celtic Torc, fashioned to resemble twisted cords. All derivatives of the spider's thread. One of the two possible derivations of the word religion itself is from 'religare', meaning to bind up, to bind together - so religion is 'that which binds'. The second possible derivation is from 'relegere' meaning to go through as in reading or thought." [Chapter 6, 'Cities of Dreams'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Anything? Try ''knot''.

A side step..."The Hermetic tradition emphasized the existence of a 'supreme' force called the One Thing, which has no perceptible form until it is 'grounded' or expressed in material reality ['stone' or 'pearl' link]. The expression of that 'force' is guided by the One Mind [ divine 'bit' link].............

"Yin is like a mother-of-pearl image hidden in the deepest recesses of the house." Quote by Dr. Jung.

"The Hermeticists saw the One Thing as a primordial, 'plastic' energy that takes the form of the idea or thought projected by the One Mind. The unseen force can be 'contacted' and controlled by mankind through divine union - a merging with the 'One Mind' in meditation and/or prayer [plough ones own furrow link] . Lasting union can only occur through a transformation of the body and mind, [''incarnation'' link] until the terrestrial man is so 'refined' and 'purified' that he becomes a vehicle solely for this force. Religious leaders throughout the ages were aware of this 'power,' though they stated there personal perspectives or creeds in many different ways." [Chapter one, 'The Emerald Tablet.' Mentioned elsewhere].

"The disintegration accomplished, it is the freed mind united to its anima, forming a complete and reintegrated psyche, which is the key of the restoration.....The regenerate soul does have the power to heal and to save - a mind cleansed by analysis, aware of its own true essence, made strong by the Union with its anima, and filled with the influx of the awakened vital spirit, [what this author calls; the libido]. Here are the keys of wisdom." [Chapter 3, 'The Philosophers Stone' by I. Regardie].

That link to the 'divine couple',i.e.,Apollo and twin sister or Sumerian equivalent, Inanna and Utu, as opposed to Jacob and Esau. Think about it, [ i.e.,"a mental state, in which spiritual perceptions were achieved, distinguishing between the 'shadow mixed with light', when the power of the imagination was mixed with reason...."]. As a means to represent an understanding of something. That familiar subject again. This subjects main teaching aid.

Question. What is that something and why do we have to understand it?

"by this time Pogossian and i had come to the definite conclusion that there really was a 'certain something' which people formally knew, but that now this knowledge was quite forgotten." [Chapter 5, 'Meetings With Remarkable Men' by G. Gurdjieff].

"This is good symbolism. The mother, as we have already discovered, is that Sephirah on the Tree of Life named Binah, and whilst she has various cosmic attributions she is also by reflection an interior or psychological principle. She it is who works in our interior natures as love, as intuition, as aspiration, and all those higher and finer emotions which we seek to express just a little more easily in our own daily lives. From the psychological point of view she would represent the Unconscious, or more especially what the analytical psychologists call the Anima, that vast sphere of feeling, emotion, instinct, and intuition which lies beneath or beyond our normal awareness." [Chapter 10, 'The Philosopher's Stone.' Mentioned elsewhere].

"If we can look deep within ourselves, beyond our own self - centeredness, we will find that true center within us - whether we chose to call it the Philosophers Stone, the Highest Good [link to Dead Sea Scrolls], the sacred heart of Christ, or Elixir of Life." [Same book].

"Everyone has an internal thought process: that silent other self who speaks to you; the one you debate with." [First sentence; first paragraph; first page of the book by Q. S. Lam]. Link to ''teacher''.

Egyptian equivalent, Re-stau, in relation to Rostau [Wallis Budge], or Ro-setau [Alexandre Piankoff]. Tau, according to some means 'time', [D. Wilcock]. Think about it, relative to different 'segments' [Djed column'] in relation to the 'Great year', or what that now is commonly known as.

Underworld, in relation to day world. Light [awareness] relative to dark [unawareness]. That understanding gives clues as to the final burial place of those that represented the Giza complex. The micro within the Macro.

Tau cross link? If so, what about 'Rose' link?

Sufi / Muslim equivalent..."Gods very 'words' point to what should be mans principle occupation: to know the divine names. This is the knowledge of ones inner being. If one obtained that knowledge, one would reach the level of divine wisdom. That is where the knowledge of the Name of Unity is complete." [Chapter 3, 'The Secret of Secrets'. Mentioned elsewhere ]. I.E.,those 99 aspects, relative to the 'whole'. Indicative of. [Relative to the 'divine' bit].

Recall one of the 'terms' that the word ['name'] 'Apollo' represents.

EXAMINATION OF TIME "If the present and the future depend on the past, then the present and the future would have existed in the past....IF the present and the future did not exist there, how could the present and the future be dependent upon it?....IF they are not dependent upon the past, neither of the two would be established. Therefore neither the present or the future would exist....BY the the same method, the other two divisions- past and future, upper, lower, middle, etc., unity, etc., should be understood....A non static time is not grasped. Nothing one can grasp as Stationary time exists. If time is not grasped, how is it known?....IF time depends on an entity, then without an entity how could time exist? There is no existent entity. So how can time exist? [Chapter 19. 'The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way' by Nagarjuna's Mulamadhyamakakarika, translated by Jay Garfield].

Banksy's 'Arrow of time'?

"Time present and time past are both perhaps present in time future, and time future contained in time past. If all time is eternally present, all time is unredeemable. What might have been is an abstraction - remaining a perpetual possibility - only in a world of speculation. What might have been, and what has been point to one end, which is always present." [First 'ten' lines of the poem 'Four Quartets' by T. S. Eliot].

Think on it, relative to the benefits of a... 'presence of mind' - by way of - a 'repetitive' habit. A positive one.

The final chapter of the ’imaginary’ story has all the characters; the good the bad and the ugly; reaching the ‘top’ level [C]. Having had come to terms with their own inner ‘demons’. Both individually and as a group. Together with the understanding of their new environment. Which again agrees with esoteric lore. And as some authors mention and which is verified in the ‘Tibetan book of the ‘dead’...or the Hermetic equivalent...by way of...'Hermes Trismegistus'. It might be wise to begin to understand that personel journey of A-C...before that final event happens, [i.e.,start of the second leg [B].

Which again has a certain logic to it. As indicated within books such as ‘Life after Life' by R. Moody. Or 'The After death Experience. The Physics of the Non - Physical' by Ian Wilson. Or 'Hope Street' by Pamela Young. Or even the examples written about in the 'Synchronicity Key' book. The authors opinions though; if only for this reader; are well off the mark, in relation to his reincarnation data. Those experiences can also be classed, if only from Mr Jungs point of view, as Archetypes, [i.e.,the author of 'Power Within the Land', [of the 'Western Way' method] defines those same archetypes as "past lives"].

Different experiences from different individuals, depending [the most important point] on where along that journey of self discovery they are as individuals. Which is a possible reason why not one individual amongst all that data could inform of 'reincarnations' process from its beginning to its end.

Understanding this framework gives, if only for this reader, a fuller more logical answer, i.e., if you had a choice of 'reincarnating' as a different person, knowing that the 'old you' therefore will no longer exist,[i.e.,you are now someone completely new, having started from scratch]... as opposed to continuing being you, while correcting any negative aspects; on a day to day basis; which we all contain.....while still being you [with all your 'ex' imperfections, but still trying, in the 'positive' sense /path]... Which would you choose? You should now have your answer to 'reincarnations' true meaning, [if only for this reader] as well as to your own state of mind, within your own personnel 'journey'.

Also note...that 'development' [or process] from 'its' beginning to its end...is made fully aware [i.e.,conscious of]... to each individual. To evaluate correctly read other publications such as chapter 6 of 'The Zelator' and/or 'Inner River'. Mentioned within. [Both distinguish between ''reincarnation'' and ''incarnation].'' Together with...

comic5 (2)"In this school [i.e.,esoteric] we think of Man as a unity which consists of a 'cosmic atom' ['divine bit' link] that is unmanifest [i.e.,not yet a 'known' factor] and has its home in spheres that are utterly beyond all human conception [link to 'Ain Sof'. Representation of]. This cosmic atom or monad [ explained elsewhere ] as some name it, has no beginning and no ending as limited human reason conceives of these two things. It 'sends forth' from its own essential 'being' what is called a higher self or 'genius, an individuality, which is an ever changing entity [ archetypes link] that evolves through the immensely long period that a man has to spend in the bosom of the 'Great Mother' [i.e.,A/B], in order to gain his full quota of experience as a unit of the human race. This individuality or 'genius' in its turn 'sends' forth from itself a portion of its own substance which is called the 'lower' self, ['altered states' link] and this later is what is known during earth life as Mr Jones and Miss Smith. And let it be said, that as Mr Jones and Miss Smith you incarnate. But Miss Smith and Mr Jones only incarnate. They never reincarnate. It is the 'higher' self of each one of us that seeks re-incarnation by incarnating a little bit at a time [i.e., from that 'unknown' factor, that is now becoming a 'known' one. This readers input]. And the non incarnating portion of Miss Smith and Mr. Jones is the 'Watcher,' the 'Observer,' the Guardian at the Gate." [Emphasis, this readers. Taken from the chapter 'Old Religion' from the book 'The New Dimensions Red Book'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Link to the word 'teacher,' of Dead Sea Scroll fame.

"Birth is then a 'forgetting' of heaven and simultaneously a recall to earth [i.e.,link to ''fall'' symbolism]. This is not so with the ''holy birth''. Here it is a remembrance of the 'divine' which is the force which accomplishes 'incarnation'. It is not thanks to forgetting of the divine that the soul is then incarnated, but rather thanks to its remembering." [Extract from the book by Tomberg]. See Part 1 - for a connection to be made.

"The word manifested by life is realization or incarnation." Quote by E. Levi, i.e.,a definition of the process of something becoming a known quantity [''manifested''] - by way of - objectivity [''observer'']: in relation to that something [i.e.,''life'' and/or 'divine bit']. Understanding of.

Understanding the above defines [what some call] ''the most difficult paragraph'' - within what is known as 'The Emerald Tablet'...

"Separate the earth from fire, the subtle from the gross, gently and with great ingenuity. It rises from earth to heaven and descends again to earth, thereby combining within itself the powers of both the above and the below." [ Taken from chapter one 'Sorcerer's Stone' by D. Hauck].

OR the Buddhist quote/formula..."Convert Untrue Self to True Self." [Extract from the 19th path as explained within the book 'The Talking Tree'].

Another..."The life force energy originates from the Self in the process of 'creation' and returns to the Self in the process of dissolution." [Extract from the book by S. Ashby].

Yet another..."Union with Ain Sof [or Soph] cannot be effected at once; he must slowly climb the ladder of life, uniting himself on each rung in 'love' and wisdom with each superior 'hierarch' ['angels' and/or 'altered' states link], until the Boundless Eternal Light is reached. Lamblichus conceives the same procedure in these words: 'And when the soul has received him as its leader ['teacher' and/or ''guardian of the gate'' link], the daemon immediately presides over the soul, giving completion to its 'lives', and binds it to body when it descends."

N.B. [Before those first impressions take hold]. Daemon = ''is Greek for 'spirit' and the word was originally used to mean any spirit, whether divine, evil or natural. In ancient Theurgy, it was often used to describe ones 'higher' self. The word was later corrupted into 'demon' and often used to indicate an evil spirit'' [Chapter 5, 'The Tree of Life'. Mentioned elsewhere. Emphasis, this readers].

And/or "The angel is the Face that 'our' god takes for us, and each of us finds his god only when he recognizes that Face." [Quote by Corbin]. Think about it in relation to the 'face' of the Sphinx. Then try ''angel''.

All the above eventually becomes a 'link' to the word and meaning of what [in the Egyptian case] is referred to as ones ''Ka''. Question. Fairy story?

falcon"The 'higher' {deeper?} 'magic', as has been shown , has as one of its objectives a communion both here and hereafter with the divine, a union not to be achieved by mere doctrine and sterile intellectual speculations, but by the exercise of other more spiritual faculties in rights and ceremonies." [and studies. This readers input]. Same book, i.e.,''IT can be demonstrated that only a little study is necessary to reveal a depth of insight which was never before realized to exist." i.e., "The Hawk, by reason of its ability to remain poised in the empyrean, was a perfect symbol of the divine self which, detached from all things of earth and form, looks down upon them with the eye of equanimity. The whole subject should be carefully studied, and if half as much care and attention is given by the reader to the study of the 'Gods' as the average man devotes to his daily newspaper, a great deal of useful knowledge of profound importance in 'Magic' will be gained." [Chapter six. Emphasis, this readers]. Recall what the Falcon represents.

"...looks down upon them with the eye of equanimity" = 'an objective view'? - relative to an understanding.

Analogy of same [but now by application of that 'objective view' ]..."It should be realized of course, that this takes place around the Divine Spark or Seed-atom in us which is NOT ourselves, but THAT which we become into. THAT is the absolute around which our nucleus forms. It provides the BEING while we have to provide the DOING of cosmos-construction." [Page 58, [including emphasis] of the book by William Gray]. OR...

"...And the Major Arcana of the Tarot? Are they not a call to the winged imagination, within a framework and in a direction proper to each of them? They are symbols. But what does one do with symbols if not apply the inspired imagination to them, directed towards their meaning..."

'Lazarus Come Forth' by Valentin Tomberg.

"Humankind has the potential for immortality, but only obtains it when men and women align themselves [horizontal / vertical link] with that immortal spiritual essence [divine bit link] which is too often ignored by the great body of humanity." [Extract taken from 'Self Initiation Into the Golden Dawn Tradition' by Cicero. Emphasis, this readers.

What the author of 'The Experience of Eternity' defines [as 'its' start point] as the ''Great Experience.''

Alchemy defines that 'experience' within 'mineral' and 'plant' symbolism. Explained elsewhere.

"Metals are purified by 'fire', and the emotions by suffering..." Enlarged elsewhere. Find it to understand it.

"Everything in man has been foreshadowed in the plant." [Quote by Indian scientist J. C. Bose - from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi' ].

"The lengthened shadow of man is history'' - enlarged elsewhere.

Question. Purely as a hypothetical question - if there is substance to this ''universal framework'' what effect would that 'common factor' have - that represents that [eternal?] coexistence - in the physical world - if it could be 'isolated'?

images4PE117KR'Musical' equivalent [i.e., with the same principle in mind] ..."The 'Ladder of the Planets' is another example of the Law of Octaves. The overall pattern of harmony in the universe is a 'seven' stepped formula for transformation embedded in our solar system. Just as the first seven notes of the musical scale represent our progress through the planets, the eighth note is a return to the first note at a higher vibration. The eighth note is the beginning of a whole new octave of creation that represents our leaving behind the grosser materiality of the planets and experiencing the more subtle matter of the 'spiritual' universe."

'Incarnation' relative to 'reincarnation' within the present moment. And/or 'horizontal' in relation to 'vertical' . Crossover point = axis mundi? - in the micro sense of the 'Word'. Get {and/or 'see' } it?

Link to hewn / unhewn or granite in relation to limestone; as a representation of that 'process'. Question. Nothing more than fable? From the dawn of humankind; or at least from when man/woman first began to think?

What the author of 'Lazarus Come Forth' defines as...''it represents a specific manifestation of the law of repeated reawakening impulses, or the reality of 'gods' spirit [ruach elohim] from the timeless first day of creation." [Chapter 3].

Remember, the understanding of a subject, by way of objectivity, gives the same result.

'The Talking Tree' by W. Gray.

"Most people pursuing their past lives are suffering from a weakness or dissatisfaction of identity in their present life; such problems can be resolved and outgrown through meditation upon deeper reality and truer identity than that of the ephemeral personality." [Quote by the author R. Stewart]. To make sense of the above; and/or make sense of what is being implied; understand that universal framework [A-C] in relation to the 'divine bit.' Enlarged throughout. i.e.,...

"The intent and determination to achieve union with the 'divine' is the only important consideration in advancing on the path of an initiate. And to do this, one need not to be a member of any recognized 'magical' group." [ Quote from within the book by Cicero] i.e.,..

..."Meditation,i.e.,the gradual deepening of thought, has its stages, which comprise pure and simple concentration on a subject, understanding the subject within the totality of relationships that it has with reality, and, lastly, intuitive penetration into the very essence of the subject. Just as prayer leads to mystical union of the soul with the 'divine', so does meditation lead to grasping a direct knowledge of eternal and immutable principles..." [Extract from the book by Tomberg. 'Letter 21' ]. The common factor between those two being a ''repetition'' of something. The main symbol of which is the 'plough'. Anything? Use the usual box to see if you agree or disagree.

"This is the Holy Grail, struck from the crown of lucifer when he fell from grace, and hidden within a secret castle. It is also the Cauldron of the Great Mother in which all life is renewed. And it is the Cup of the Sacrament. In other words, it changes shape according to individual understanding, but retains its mysteries power of regeneration. If we sought for a definition of the Grail, we would say: 'That which does not regenerate is not the grail.' " Try ''cauldron'' {and/or 'cup'} while recalling the Mr Jones, Miss Smith paragraph.

Lucifer = ''the light bringer'', i.e.,something representing a 'negative' [link to the word ''fall'' or in a ''fallen state''] - that has the potential to become a 'positive' - but only by that 'individual' effort.

'Quest for the Holy Grail' by Jessie Weston.

That final sentence that explains the difference between ''incarnation'' and a ''reincarnation.'' Compare to the previous paragraph with 'Mr Jones' and 'Miss Smith'. [Extract taken from chapter 2, entitled 'The Secret Way Across the Abyss' from the book, ' The Underworld Initiation' by R. Stewart]. Can you see that analogy because of those keys? Its physical representation [as one example] would be the 'tunnel' in Seti 1 tomb. The longest one in the Valley of the Kings. Others explained elsewhere.

A {working?} example: "As we watch from out of the windows, we are aware of a great wind which seems to be gathering force and to be driving along from the green hill, past the tower, toward the city. The force of the wind gets higher and higher, until it is howling and screaming around the tower. Suddenly, there is a burst of thunder and lightening, and the whole tower is lit up on the inside with a flash of light. We see ourselves, in that instant, as we really are. That incredible flash of white light shows up everything - our own souls inwardly. And the effect of that flash, show's almost like a photographers flash, is to imprint upon our minds  the state of ourselves as we really are, which we can see at a latter time, at the end of our journey - reflect upon..." [From the book by G. Knight]. Try ''cup/s''  and/or ''tower''.

"Within the aspirant there arises an understanding of what is going on and he awakens to the desire to control consciously this ebb and flow or [to put it in simple words] to turn the forces of the outgoing energy in any direction he chooses, or to withdraw to his center at will. He seeks to arrest this process of being swept out into incarnation without having any conscious purpose, and refuses to see the tide of his life beat out on emotional or mental spheres of existence; and then again see that life withdrawn, without his conscious volition. He stands at the midway point and wants to control his own cycles, the ''ebb and flow'' as he himself may determine it. With conscious purpose he longs to walk in the dark places of incarnated existence [i.e.,from an 'unknown' to a now 'known.' This readers input], and with equally conscious purpose he seeks to withdraw into his own center. Hence he becomes an aspirant." Ebb and flow in relation to wet and dry. Purpose of in relation to an understanding. Anything?

"Then is the time to appreciate that midway spot, which is neither dry nor wet, must provide the standing place whereon his feet are set."

"In this light an initiation [i.e.,by way of a eureka moment; represented {as an example} with the 'hare' symbol. Some refer to it as 'the mediation of the Knower Within' ] may come to us, and it may be completely devoid of ritual or ceremony. It may be a sudden event that changes our life completely, and directs us inward. It may even be a veritable incarnation of a Kabalistic or alchemical pathworking, unfolding around us. In the end however, as the word implies, initiation is only the beginning of the new stage of development, and that phase is only completed when we have been initiated into the next phase, at the hand of our Interior Master, [''teacher'' link], our very Soul - our self awareness." [Chapter 12, 'The Philosopher's Stone'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Different 'keys', same principles..."In most generalized terms, we are talking about the universal forces of energy, consciousness, and matter. The great traditionalist philosopher Rene Guenon, who undertook an in depth study of the trinity [explained throughout] of celestial elements, believed they were forces that were present in any act of manifestation. [Think on it , relative to 'unmanifest' in the previous [13th?] paragraph. Highlighted]. He reffered to the active principle the alchemists called Sulphur as ''Essence,'' the passive principle of Salt as "Substance," and the reconciling principle of Mercury as the "Mediator." Guenon acknowledged the universal truths revealed in the Emerald Tablet and saw in its formula a path to spiritual enlightenment. [Put ''mediator'' in the usual box].

Those words ''manifest/unmanifest'' used by some to describe that personnel journey from unaware to aware. Or unknown to now becoming known. The author of 'The Cosmic Doctrine' a good example. The ''Great Entity'' used as a reference to define 'individuals' who are seeking to understand themselves in the 'bigger picture'. The Micro within the Macro. The ''Ring-Cosmos'' and the ''Ring-Chaos'' used to represent those dual characteristics that ALL employ - in one form or another...i.e.,

"The Great Entity commences its evolution by developing, not the Cosmic Rings, but the concept of those Rings." [Chapter 7, same book]. Very similar [in its approach to making those 'concepts' understood] to other books such as 'The Kabalion' by the three initiates. For this reader - heavy going. Hence the value of understanding 'objectivity' in relation to 'subjectivity' i.e., the study of the subject in general and not just one aspect or author within it.

"...we need to make careful distinction between that which i will call objective and subjective truth. Objective truth is that which falls within the sphere of scientific examination and logical proof; subjective truth consists of an inner experience which is valid for the person who undergoes it, but which he or she can neither communicate, nor prove..." [Introduction, same book].

''Heaven is his 'father', Earth his 'mother' ['son of' link] .........The very fact that it is an initiate formula is itself a clear indication that if we are to understand it in its fullest sense, it must not be just thought of as referencing to the ordinary man who is the product of present world conditions, but as describing the 'true man' all of whose possibilities the initiate is called upon to realize within himself. As the son of 'heaven and earth,' the initiate has inside himself not only the four earthly elements but also the three 'heavenly' ones, ['divine bit' link] which is why the ancients viewed the individual as a microcosm of the whole universe. The same forces that shape the cosmos are present in man. This is the meaning of the Doctrine of Correspondences and the whole impetus for spiritual alchemy. No matter how far man has fallen from grace, no matter how tightly shackled to the chains of physicality he has allowed himself to become, there is hope for him because he has all the elements necessary to set himself free. All he has to do is purify the earthly elements in his soul and personality and 'activate' those 'heavenly' elements in his 'indwelling' spirit. This is the great work - to dissolve all that is 'inferior' within us and coagulate all that is 'superior.' In other words, we have to transmute the very elements of which we are made." [Chapter 7, 'The Emerald Tablet' by D. Hauck].

"...but if you are armed with the 'wand' of intuition, the 'cup' of sympathy, the 'sword' of reason and the 'pentacle' of valor, you will find there {the legends say} the Medicine of Metals, the Elixir of Life, the Philosophers Stone, True Wisdom and perfect happiness." [Extract from the book 'The Cosmic Trigger' by R. Wilson. Emphasis, this readers].

"The destiny of man, as we have said, is to make or create himself. He is, and he will be the son of his works, both for time and eternity." Quote by E. Levi.

"Since one incarnation on earth cannot possibly be sufficient, the personalty must return again and again in order to achieve the maximum development." [Introduction 'Alchemists Handbook' by F. Albertus].

"Life is a school. We incarnate to learn. Once all the lessons are learnt, we cease to incarnate........We have reached 'Nirvana.' " [Chapter 7, 'Astral Doorways.' Mentioned elsewhere].

A work in progress: "So what is the true habitat of the soul? Clearly it is not merely a place. It is the life force beyond our mistaken notion of ourselves that is seeking to come through us and accomplish its work of goodness in the world. It is that 'mysterious' presence that can overcome solitude, meaninglessness, and despair. Moreover, not only is it always there - deep within - but it is seeking us more {top down?} than we are seeking it {bottom up?}. This habitat is common to us all. We are not merely separate , disconnected life forms as the senses suggest. We are all connected and rooted in the deeper life that brought us into being. This habitat is our source of hope and sanity in a world of chaos...To become connected to that inner spiritual home, is to come into contact with the very mystery of our existence. And the more we enter our true habitat at the center of our very being the more we are made whole..." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way'. Continued elsewhere]. Try ''mandala'' for a further 'connection'.

"Here is another example, this time from the domain of esoteric experience. As we have already mentioned, reincarnation - successive lives of the same human individuality - is a fact of experience, as are the successive periods of wakefulness belonging to the day, which are interrupted by sleep at night. Buddha recognized the fact of reincarnation as such, but he considered it regrettable. This is why the aim of the eight fold path which he taught is to put an end to reincarnation. Because nirvana is the end of successive terrestrial lives...There was a time when there was no reincarnation; there will be a time when it will no longer be. Reincarnation only commenced after the Fall and it will cease with reintegration. IT is therefore not eternal..." [Taken from 'Meditations on the Tarot: A Journey into Christian Hermeticism' {Letter five} by Tomberg].

Analogy of same..."Sulphur was considered the father of metals and mercury the mother, and all metals were procreated from them. A 'sexual' act was necessary to create the 'stone,' its composition analogous to the birth of a human. George Ripley said, ''mercury is an unruly woman who had to be governed and is not let out until she has conceived a 'child.' '' The coagula symbolized the regeneration or reconstruction of the body. A series of dissolution's and coagulation's in the vessel, that is, death and regeneration was called the ''solve et coagula.'' The black state in the Great Work represented prison. The mercury and gold were confined in 'prison' and setting them free was necessary. The mercurial serpent symbolized the spirit hidden in matter, which existed at the beginning and end of the great work. Destructive at the beginning, it transmuted itself at the end. Symbolic of life and death, destroyer and healer, slayer and slain, poison and medicine, it participated in every aspect of the great work. Mercury was both the dark matter and the spirit hidden within. Both dissolver and coagulator, it was released when the old form was dissolved and 'recaptured' when the spirit was congealed. The union of the coagula symbolized marriage. It represented the triumph over 'separation' and the joining of opposites at all levels, male and female, sun and moon, wet and dry, fixed and volatile, hot and cold, light and dark, heaven and earth." [Chapter 7, 'Keeper of Secrets' Vol 3 by R. Siblerud]. Think on it relative to the 'Birth of Venus'. A representation of something; other than the obvious. [Found within].

"They are what i am. But i will be more. Pun: The whole is the sum of its hearts." [Seth quote in relation to the answer given to the question ''What do you think of your various reincarnations?'' Page 16, 'The Seth Material' ].

"Jan Baptiste Van Helmont, the Flemish Alchemist, was important in the secret societies for reintroducing into Western esotericism ideas of reincarnation...which he called, ''the revolution of human souls.'' [Page 332, 'The Secret History of the World'].

The circle is now complete. Back at the beginning. Those same old questions. WHY?. Why go to all that time and effort? Is it all a figment of their active imaginations? Maybe something along the lines of a Harry Potter story? Even though they all agree that no flying broomsticks or carpets are valid components within their esoteric lore. Witches don’t count. They come under Pagan esotericism. That new ‘religion’ that has ‘42,000’ members.

As is the same intent, with the 42 nomes of ‘upper/lower’ Egypt, Or the 42 'volumes' of Hermes Trismegistus. Or 42 precepts of Maat. Or the 42 generations between Abraham and Christ. Symbolic would you believe of this/that world. Four represents this world; four elements; four points of the compass; etc...Two represents...'Duality', indicative of the 'co-existence' lore. Four and two equals six. Six for whatever reasons represents A+B, [Pythagorous symbolism. As with the six sides of the hexagram, [Hebrew symbol.]] Or the six days of ‘creation’. ‘Waters’ above/ below’ the ‘firmament’. [Which represents only A-B ].

"So all the generations from Abraham to David were fourteen generations, and from David to the deportation to Babylon fourteen generations, and from the deportation to Babylon to the Christ fourteen generations." [Matthew i, 17].

Don't forget those first impressions, i.e.,total them up.

Side note: "Finally, an etched rib bone was found with the human remains in Gough's cave, Cheddar {not far from Glastonbury}. Its markings consist of short strokes along the edges, often in groups of nine. The significance of this number in this context was debated for many years, but in 1989 five fragments of bone were found at the same site, all with similar grouping of incisions. The number in each group upon these varies from eight to fourteen, so it may be that the sets of nine strokes upon the first find were of no particular significance. Unless the carver {or carvers} were simply doodling, the incisions look like tallies. But whether of kills, or days, or moons, or something else, we cannot know." [From the book by R. Hutton].

fourteen

'Suns' rays with [helping?] hands on the end of each. Amongst others - Nineteen can sometimes be seen instead of fourteen. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

"Higher numbers frequently assume a deeper meaning by being connected with their divisors...Among the important lunar numbers, 14 is particular interesting, for it takes the waxing moon 14 days to reach perfection as a full moon...The 14 helpers or 14 saints are, in their aspect of the double 7, symbols of kindness joined with reason, as well as symbols of help in dangerous situations...The kindly god Osiris was cut into 14 pieces, and each of his parts brought a blessing to the land where it was lying...It is natural that in Islam, a religion where lunar symbolism plays an important role, the 14 should occupy a special place. Once again the main contributions to the esoteric interpretation come from the Brethren of Purity. Fourteen is not only half of 28, the number of the lunar mansions and the letters of the Arabic alphabet, but it also reflected in the 14 parts of the human hand and the 14 vertebrae each in the upper and lower parts of the spine. It is not strange that the Arabic alphabet consists of 14 so-called 'sun' letters and 14 'moon' letters, and also 14 letters with diacritical marks and 14 without them...

...Such considerations played an important role in the mystical interpretations of the letter...by the so called Hurufis, who combined letter and number symbolism with parts of the human face and body, showing for example, that the words 'yad', ''hand,'' and 'wajh', ''face,'' both have the numerical value of 14.

REFRESHER: "In the course of the Iliad, gods - representing planets - assume the voices or characters of mortals {stars}. In this way, Homer records a phenomenon known as occultation, when the moon or a planet journeying across the sky passes in front of celestial objects that are further away, such as stars or outer planets, and temporarily obscures them. It may be that total obscuration occurs only when a god assumes the body of a mortal; when a god assumes the voice of a mortal or is said to be helping him, this may indicate that the planet is only close to the personal star of the warrior concerned." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].  Other information on ''Poseidon'' elsewhere.

A {working?} example..."A few other people from the group followed me, probably thinking they wanted to see what i was doing. To me, of course, whoever was there was supposed to be there. There are no accidents, no mistakes. Within a few minutes, i found the second cenote and noted that there was exactly 14 people, including myself. I explained to them the story of Ken and me and the other cenote back in 1985 and the present request of the Hunbatz men, and it was if everyone had been to psychic school. They seemed to know exactly what to do." ['Serpent of Light Beyond 2012'].

Follow the title of the book to understand those 'keys' within the context of a working  example - before asking those bigger questions.

It would be surprising if such speculations were not applied to the prophet Muhammad. Indeed one of his names Taha, has the numerical value of 14 and points to the fact that he, radiant like the full moon, appeared in the dark night of this world to illuminate it with his perfect spiritual and corporeal beauty. In this tradition, 14 is also connected with beauty: 14 years is the ideal age of the beautiful young beloved, the boy with an immaculate face; comparable to a full moon who, as the medieval Arab poet claims: is like the moon of 7 plus 7, and the 7 climata and the 7 spheres make obeisance before him..." [Extract from the book 'Mystery of Numbers'. Mentioned elsewhere. Emphasis, this readers]. Try ''hand'' to see those broader [universal?] connections and not just its local [micro?] ones - BEFORE THOSE BIGGER QUESTIONS ARE ASKED.

A {working?} or synchronistic example: "When the Copper Scroll was finally translated by John Allegro, in addition to Hebrew writing, it was also found to contain 14 letters from the Greek alphabet, interspersed throughout the text. When Feather {scholar/author} looked at these in more detail, he found that when put together, they spelt the Greek name for Akhenaten." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way'].

"42 { 14x3?} is often interchangeable with 40, for 6 weeks of 7 days are often regarded, like the 40 days, as a time of preparation or waiting. Medieval Christian theologians pointed out that there were 42 stations [micro] that the children of Israel had to pass between Egypt and Sinai, and that this sequence appears again in the incarnation of Christ in the 42nd generation [macro] after Abraham. Or they might speak of the 6 connected with human acts multiplied by the seven of resting, which is the sabbath..." [Same book. Parenthesis this readers]. Anything?

Something to ponder on: "These acrobatics figures are different from those severe-looking terracotta warriors in gestures, dressings and expressions. The discovery of these figures adds a new group to the Qin terracotta warriors; shows us the colorful acrobatical art and the entertainment culture in the Qin royal court...It refers to the theatricals and variety shows including pole climbing, wrestling dance, sword-swallowing and tripod lifting, among which the tripod lifting is the most welcomed one. The men of giant strength competed in lifting up the heaviest tripod. During this excavation work, a copper tripod was also unearthed. It weights about 467 pounds, which is the heaviest copper tripod discovered in the Qin Mausoleum by far.

What's more, on the side palace of the Emperor Qin Shihuang's Mausoleum, experts discovered a stone dice called Shiboqiong similar to today's dice but with 14 sides. Each side was carved with one character or a number. It is believed that the dice was a play thing of the Emperor Qin Shihuang. But how to play it and how the 14 sides developed into today's six sides, remains unknown." [www.travelchinaguide.com]. Try ''acrobat'' and/or ''dice'' and/or ''six'' and/or  ''games''.

Side note: "Enoch lived many centuries before Moses. In the 5th chapter of the Book of Genesis, Enoch is described as the ''seventh from Adam'' - which meant he was born seven generations after Adam. Since seven, in Essene numerology, is the number of perfection, it is no mere coincidence that Enoch represents the seventh generation of humanity: he represents perfect humanity..." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way']. Continued elsewhere.

'Perfect' in the sense of an understanding - the whole one not just its parts - micro within the macro - by way of Gnosis - OR MORE IMPORTANTLY - what it implies in relation to that understanding. Hence ''He who walked with 'god'."  See it? As opposed to say, Moses, ''he who {only} saw the face of god''. Both enlarged throughout.

Synchronistic example? "Inspired by his discoveries at Troy, Schliemann reasoned that other cities named by Homer must also exist, and in the following years he excavated in the Peloponnese...It was in a tomb at Mycenae that he discovered a golden mask that is the most famous find from Bronze Age Greece. It was said that Schliemann telegraphed to the king of Greece, 'I have gazed upon the face of Agamemnon.' Archeologists are now certain that it is not the mask of same, and there is even doubts about the precise wording of the telegram...In spite of his many faults and fantasies Schliemann..."

A-C is always represented within number symbolism with the number eight. As with the Octagonal shape, of the Dome of the Rock, and the eight petaled rosette emblem on the Phaistos Disc, or the 'eight limbed', as a representation of Raja Yoga, or 'eight' Rosicrucian members of the original brotherhood [as a representation of something, as is the eight year cycle of Venus, or the eight notes within the musical scale, or the 88 constellations, that are part of the Zodiac. The meaning of which is 'animal circle']. Or [as a metaphor: but with the same principle in mind] - "Saturn is the first step on the Ladder of the Planets. It is farthest from the sun of all the visible planets - 888 million miles - and represents the galactic starting point on our journey in from the stars." OR "The next stop on the 'Ladder of the Planets' is Mercury. It is closest planet to the sun and revolves around it in 88 days, thus making it the 'fastest' moving planet in our solar system."[ Both extracts taken from the book 'Sorcerer's Stone' by D. Hauck]. Or the eight points of the Maltese cross. Or the 800 utterances, written in 'columns' inside the pyramids of the late Old Kingdom and First Intermediate Period that were called the pyramid texts. Or even [as will some day be verified?] - the 88 'hammers' on the 230 strings of the Grand Piano OF Giza]. Finally "he that hath an ear, let him hear," appears no less than eight times in the Book of Revelations."

REFRESHER..."The 'Ladder of the Planets' is another example of the Law of Octaves. The overall pattern of harmony in the universe is a 'seven' stepped formula for transformation embedded in our solar system. Just as the first seven notes of the musical scale represent our progress through the planets, the eighth note is a return to the first note at a higher vibration. The eighth note is the beginning of a whole new octave of creation that represents our leaving behind the grosser materiality of the planets and experiencing the more subtle matter of the 'spiritual' universe." Enlarged elsewhere,i.e.,try ''eight''.

N.B. For an example of landscape equivalent {Mayan} see 'The Eight Temples' within chapter 6 of the book 'Serpent of Light Beyond 2012'.

"The Christian gnostics made much of the fact that the name Jesus [Greek translation] is equivalent to the number 888, and it is well known that the so called ''number of the beast'' as mentioned in Revelations is 666." Knock knock, see / hear anything? Recall what the ''triple'' of anything [in number symbolism ], is indicative of. Explained within. Together with what ''beast'' represents in relation to what ''Jesus'' represents. 'Lower' in relation to 'higher'. Represented [ in number symbolism ] as 'six' in relation to 'eight' - A/B relative to A/B + C. Potential of.

For further reading on the ''Gematria'' aspect to this overall subject see, 'The Pythagorean Sourcebook and Library' by D. Fideler.

A working example?..."The Beast is like our ego and egocentric interests. It represents the work of 'self' alone, without 'gods' influence. The mark is erased when the work of our hands and thoughts of our minds are cooperating with god, rather than simply being self driven. The Beast is our lower nature at our most selfish, self-centered, self glorifying point of existence." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way' / Mentioned elsewhere]. Continued elsewhere.

''Grace'' in relation to horizontal/vertical ?

Exercise. Put the four above paragraphs together with this fifth one to 'see' if can understand something other than the obvious. Something other than what those first impressions only 'see'.

"An Octagon will indicate ceremonial work [ the study of a subject implies the same] of a mercurial nature, since eight is the number of Hod, the Sephirah to which Mercury is attributed. Erected within this figure, as the foundation of all his work, the symbol of the lower Will, Is the Altar, on which are arrayed the magical instruments to be employed [or studied]. It is the fundamental center of the 'magicians' work, the pivot to which he again and again returns from the circumambulation [link to ''repetition'' symbol Or 'to revise'. Purpose of, i.e.,within the context of a ''study'' program or what one may call 'the way of the READER']. It should be so built this altar, that its shape and size, the very materials from which it is constructed, are all in accord with the fundamental philosophic principles of the Kabalah, [ or any esoteric literature], thus serving to remind him of the work in hand. Cedar wood for instance, if employed in the construction of the Altar, would bring about an imaginative association with Jupiter, whereas Oak is an attribution of Mars. The wood of the Laural or Acacia, both of which are attributed to Tiphareth, would however be harmonious for no matter what kind of working, inasmuch as Tiphareth and its correspondences symbolize harmony and equilibrium. This Altar should be made that it can act as a cupboard, in the 'interior' of which all the 'instruments' [or symbols] may be safely kept and guarded. [Link to 'heart' symbolism ]. One exception, however, exists to this general rule. The Lamp must always hang above the Theurgists head, and is never kept in the Altar cupboard. It symbolizes in every system the undimmed radiance of the Higher self, the Holy Guardian Angel - ['guardian of the gate' link, i.e.,that boundary line between objective and subjective that is necessary to employ when one is attempting to understand anything. ]- to whose knowledge and 'conversation' he so ardently aspires ['magician' and/or student. Take your pick, i.e., to 'internalize' with oneself. Higher/lower]. Whenever that 'Lamp' is shining, illuminating the magical work, that operation bears the immortal seal of legitimacy and the abiding sanction and approval, as it were, of the Holy Ghost, ['divine bit' link and/or 'source',i.e.,the understanding of it - in this case - relative to top/down as a means to an understanding]. Moreover, the Oil which this lamp 'consumes' is olive oil, sacred to Minerva, the 'goddess' of Wisdom." [Chapter 7, 'The Tree Of Life'. Mentioned elsewhere. Emphasis, this readers]. Understand those keys [highlighted in one form or another] to define a subject. The objective way works just as well as the 'ritual' one. The 'Way' of the READER and or student. Sacrifice something of the 'lower' to understand something of the 'higher' = a learning curve. Mechanics of. Try ''lamp'' in the usual box.

"Stecchini resolved the millennial riddle of the coffer [sarcophagus] by showing that it contains exactly 40 artaba, or 40 cubes whose sides are one geographical foot, and that its outside volume is twice this amount, or 80 cubes of one geographical foot."

'New Dimensions for the Cube of Space.' / D. Hulse.

"All forms that nature produces are originally the products of universal life expressing itself in 'forms'. They are manifestations of the 'one' in 'three', but as such they do not posses any life of their own. There still remains the UNmanifested one, which must become active in the form if the form is to live. The 'Three' rendered alive through the 'One' produces the 'Four', and four is therefore the number of 'perfection'. It represents the square, by means of which the universe is 'constructed', and which finds its symbolic expression in the life giving influences meeting from the four cardinal points, North, South, East and West." [Quote taken from within the book by F. Hartman]. Something unknown becoming a 'known' quantity.

Question. What is that 'quantity'?

Additional 'information': "The Cube {six squares}, relates to the element earth, the physical world. The Icosahedron {twenty triangles} relates to the element water and the 'astral' level. The Octahedron {eight triangles} relates to the element air, and to the mental/intuitional level. The Tetrahedron {four triangles} relates to the element fire, and to the spiritual or artemic level. The Dodecahedron {twelve pentagon's} represents the universe, the totality of creation. Contains the other four forms within itself." [ 'The Fourth Dimension' by A. Duncan].

Analogy {wisdom within it?}: "Considering Hephaestus role as the original creator of the constellations, new lines of inquiry may indicate that Homer preserved in the Iliad the remnants of an even older astronomical culture than that associated with Minoan Crete and Mycenae. Consider the following passage: 'Meanwhile Thetis came to the house of Hephaestus, imperishable, star-bespangled, fairest of the abodes in Heaven, a house of bronze wrought by the lame gods own hands. She found him busy with his bellows, sweating and hard at work, for he was making twenty tripods {triangles?} that were to stand 'by the wall' of his house, and he set wheels of gold under them {'chariots'?} - all that they might go of their own selves to the assemblies of the gods, and come back again - marvels indeed to see." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

N.B. That final sentence in relation to: "Just as the first seven notes of the musical scale represent our progress through the planets, the eighth note is a return to the first note at a higher vibration. The eighth note is the beginning of a whole new octave of creation that represents our leaving behind the grosser materiality of the planets and experiencing the more subtle matter of the 'spiritual' universe." Enlarged elsewhere.

Refresher: "To be sure, 20 is not exactly interesting for mystical and magic pursuits, but on the other hand, it is extremely important in the formation of number systems. For the simple reason that the fingers and toes add up to 20, this number forms the basis for counting in many cultures. Among the Celts, for example, 40 is called two times 20. The Ainu in northern Japan have a very similar way of counting and express, for instance, 80 as 4 times 20, which corresponds exactly to the French 'quatre' {four} 'vingts' {twenty}. The Maya used to connect 20 with the solar deity just as in ancient Babylonia it was linked with Samash, the sun god. In Quiche, the Mayan writing system, the cipher for the number 20 is a human figure, and among the Hopi, a child is given a name on the twentieth day to become a real human {nickname?}. In medieval Christian exegesis, on the other hand, 20 was taken to point to man's realization of the 10 Commandments in act and intention, or else as a product of 4 times 5, that is the 5 books of the Pentateuch, which is the law, and the 4 Gospels, which mean grace...In a number of special terms in German one still finds remnants of an earlier use of 20 as a comprehensive number: 1 Ries of paper, 20 sheets, forms one ''book''...and the Schneise, a small road into a forest, originally meant a rope on which 20 codfish could be hung to dry..." ['Mystery of Numbers' / A. Schimmel}.

Question. Why codfish?

continued..."In English, the old ''score'' for 20 is still much more in use, as in threescore and one = 61."

"Sixty, one of the central numbers in the systems of the ancient Near East, still influences our lives with minutes and seconds. It has also been used in other counting units, such as the old German measure called a Schock, which was mainly used for counting eggs but originally related to the placing of sheaves of grain at harvest time. In Babylonia, 60 was the first great unit, as it could easily be divided by 30, 20, 15, 12, 10, 6, 5, 4, 4, and 2. While the number 1 was expressed as a small wedge, the 60 appeared as a large wedge. Being the ''great one'' it was assigned to the highest diety, Anu, the god of heaven. The relation to 60 to the 360 degrees of the circle = the construction of geometrical figures such as the equilateral triangle and may have played a role in the development of the sexagesimal system...In ancient Greece 60 was similar used as a round number, and Plato's ''marriage number'' 12,960,000 = 60 to the power of 4, is derived from it...Plutarch claims that crocodiles lay 60 eggs, hatch them for 60 days, and live for 60 years; he adds that 60 is the first measure for those interested in heavenly appearances." ['Mystery of Numbers'].

''Heavenly appearance'' in relation to: "Immorality, or a misapprehension about the true nature of the material world, will, as Blavatsky intimated, darken into a crocodile form {'etheric' link}, from which the soul must struggle free." ['The Zelator']. Try ''struggle''.

Question. At what nome {temple?} within Egypt {i.e.,along the Nile River} can be found the sacred crocodile. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

Understanding those - what seem on first impressions - as just bits and pieces of {information?} - gives clues - if not a direction - as to someones final resting place.

Side note: A work in progress?..."The appearance of the brightest star was not only a major spectacle: it also raised the problem of how to incorporate Sirius in the then established order of constellations. In the Iliad this was solved by a major revision of stars and constellations in a large sector of the sky. In an area of the heavens extending south towards the horizon and bounded in the north by Cancer, in the west by the Milky Way and Orion and in the east by Hydra there were only a small number of significantly bright stars before the arrival of Sirius. These included the stars now known as Procyon {Canis Minor}, and Altarf + Cancri, which may have been part of an extended ancient constellation of Leo. A reorganization of this area of sky to accommodate Sirius is indicated by the importance Homer assigns to the 'gifts' offered to Achilles if he will return to the 'battlefield'. On three different occasions the gifts are listed in detail as seven tripods {i.e.,21, i.e.,''Twenty one is connected to perfection, since it is the product of the sacred numbers 7 and 3''] - twenty iron cauldrons, twelve horses and eight women {i.e.,61 in total}. If each group of gifts is taken to represent stars within a band of similar brightness or magnitude, it suggests that some stars within an older boundary of Leo, were 'given' to a new constellation boundary created around Sirius and including Canis Minor and Cancri, perhaps once 'owned' by Agamemnon {Leo}. Some support for the idea that a more ancient configuration of Leo was larger than the present constellation is derived from a belief that the earliest zodiac had only six divisions and not the twelve devised later." [Homer's Secret Iliad'].

N.B. ''Six'' in relation to 'half a dozen of this - half a dozen of that' relative to what ''twelve'' represents. A process {development?} still {evolving?} in stages? Representational of. As in the case of the triple uraeus of Cleopatra?  OR those 'blue' stones {'inner'} relative to the Sarsen ones {'outer'}. Question. Same 'time' period? Enlarged elsewhere.

continued..."Sixty is also the product of 3x4x5, and the Kaaba in Mecca has recently been interpreted in these terms by the American musicologist and numerologist E. G. McClain, who relates its proportions to those of the Sumerian ark {60x60x60} or its double {2x60x60x60}, the number of the sacred mountain, the world's center..." ['Mystery of Numbers'].

"Such a division of the 7 into these two constituent principles, the spiritual 3 and the material 4, was used time and again..." [Taken from 'Mystery of Numbers'. Found elsewhere].

"In the gnostic gospel Pistis Sophia, Jesus instructs his disciples at some length concerning the nature of the first and last mysteries. He states that the first mystery is the last mystery "from within outwards"...in other words, Alpha is contained within Omega, and the two are intimately connected." [Page, 272, 273, 'Jesus Christ Sun of God' {Ancient Cosmology and Early Christian Symbolism} by D. Fideler].

..."The 'Ladder of the Planets' is another example of the Law of Octaves. The overall pattern of harmony in the universe is a 'seven' stepped formula for transformation embedded in our solar system.

The eighth note is the beginning of a whole new octave of creation that represents our leaving behind the grosser materiality of the planets and experiencing the more subtle matter of the 'spiritual' universe."

Understanding the above gives a plausible ''helping hand'' in attempting to define the following..."Those Biblical words [i.e.,the Father, the Son, the Holy ghost] refer to the threefold nature of the Hindu [scriptures] equivalent of - Sat,[''being''] Tat, Aum. God the Father is the 'absolute' Unmanifested, existing beyond vibratory creation. God the Son, is the Christ consciousness [Brahma or Kutastha Chaitanya] existing within vibratory creation; this Christ consciousness is the ''only begotten'' [i.e.,'penetrating into divine bosom and/or heart' link] or sole reflection of the UNcreated infinite. The outward manifestation of the omnipresent Christ consciousness, its ''witness'' [Revelation 3:14] is Aum, the ''word'' [logos] or Holy Ghost, [i.e.,Biblical/Christian equivalent] - invisible 'divine' power, the only 'doer', the sole causative and 'activating' force that upholds all creation through vibration. Aum the 'blissful comforter' is heard in meditation and reveals the ultimate truth, bringing all things to ''remembrance''. [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'. Mentioned elsewhere. Emphasis/parenthesis - this readers].

Try ''remembrance'' relative to ''sleep'' with ''being'' in mind. Intent of. Try Part 1. Before asking those bigger questions, i.e.,why go to all this effort?

"The Royal secret is not one that can be told in words. Throughout the world runs a tradition of a wondrous secret sought under different names by men through all the ages. The Philosophers Stone, the Elixir of Immortality, The Holy Grail, the Hidden Name of god, all these have been objects of man's quest, and all are one and the same, if rightly understood.......No pen can ever write down this secret, nor can any lips reveal it, but it is written in the inmost heart of man and has lain there through countless ages, awaiting the day when the disciple, tearing aside the veils of ignorance, perceives its blazing letters in his heart. There is no man, however mean or sinful, in whose heart it is not written, but few they are, who read its life giving words." [Chapter 9, 'The Yoga of the Bhagavat Gita'].

Or 'The tail end of something and the beginning of something else' together with 'twelve' relative to 'thirteen'. OR as Plato quotes in his seventh letter, "matters of ultimate concern are best not discussed in writing but, after a long period of study, true insight, ..."like a blaze kindled by a leaping spark is generated in the soul and at once becomes self sustaining." [Page 17, same book]. Link to ''son of and therefore ''penetrate'' symbolism.

Alchemy equivalent: "......First Matter, which is what they called the One Thing. By using that term, they emphasized that it was a preexisting substance, hidden in the everyday world. Their drawings often depict the First Matter as a square stone or cube that sometimes dangles by a rope from above. Called the 'Cubic Stone', it is part of the sacred geometry........'it is the corner stone that the builders rejected.' " [Chapter 5, 'The Emerald Tablet' by D. Hauck].

Question. Conspiracy theorists?

"From the inward action of 'Sulpher' and the outward reaction of 'Mercury' there results a kind of 'crystallization' that determines so to speak a limit common to both inner and outer, or a neutral zone where the opposing influences proceeding respectively from each meet and are stabilized; the product of this 'crystallization' is 'Salt' which is represented by the cube insofar as the latter is at once the type of the crystalline form and the symbol of stability. This is the 'cubic stone' of Masonic symbolism; but it is necessary to specify that this is the ordinary 'cubic stone' and not the 'pointed cubic stone' which properly symbolizes the 'philosophers stone'......."[Chapter 12 'The Great Triad' by R. Guenon].

Put ''penetrate into the 'divine' bosom''; in the usual box; to define that difference, before that bigger question is asked. WHY. Why go to all this effort?

It also explains this subjects 'fascination' with the subject of psychology - As its PRIME TEACHING AID. Especially in reference to that universal word that ALL use in one form or the other, from 'its' beginning to the present date. After all you cannot have one without the other - but one has to come before the other. Which implies a direction. See it yet?

"In Alchemy there are the lessor and greater circulations. The former pertains to the 'herbal' kingdom and the later to the most coveted of them all, the 'mineral' ['metallic''] realm, [link to the word ''pointed.'' This readers input]. A correct understanding, and not just knowledge of the herbal process will open the gate to the great Arcanum." [Chapter one, F. Albertus book].

"...Arcanum - that which one needs to know in order to make discoveries of each arcanum." [Extract from the book by Tomberg].

"Metals are purified by 'fire', and the emotions by suffering. The lower desires must starve to nourish the higher; the animal passions must be crucified and die; but the angel of Will removes the stone [ 'lid' link] from the sepulchre and liberates the higher energies from the sphere of selfishness and darkness; and then the resurrected virtues will begin to live and become active in a new world of enduring light and harmony." [Chapter 5, from the book by F. Hartman]. That link to ''transcendent third.'' And thereafter incarnation relative to reincarnation. Enlarged elsewhere.

"The altar of sacrifice demonstrates that where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.....The center of the altar is a most especial part. It is the center of your universe. Put something special there. Perhaps a flower, or a sanctuary flame.

Mentioned elsewhere]. Anything?

"We have spoken of an altar at each quarter, between a pair of Elemental Pillars. This is to effect a focus of intention. In ultimate truth, the altar is yourself. As you face the two pillars you may see the altar between them and just beyond. If the pillars were upright sides of a mirror the altar would be a reflection of your soul." [Same book].

"The symbol of the lower will is the altar".

"If the foregoing even in its very condensed form has made any sense at all to the student of alchemy, it must be apparent then why that alchemical gem, which all 'alchemists' desire to produce, has been called the Philosophers Stone. How often is it that we use words and attach no meanings to them, only because we fail to understand." [Introduction ' Alchemists Handbook' by F. Albertus].

"The force of life is infinite; we are saturated, permeated through and through with this 'force,' this energy. It constitutes our higher self; it is our link with the entire universe; it is 'god' within us. Every molecule of our physical system is permeated with the dynamic energy of this force; each cell in our body contains it in abundance. When we consider this force, when we become aware of it, we are then brought face to face.........." [Chapter one ' The Art of True Healing' by I. Regardie].

N.B. Moses who came face to face with...? Coincidence or a meaningful one?

"The relationship between Jesus and the symbolism of the Ogdoad was developed a great deal in the teachings of the early church. One reason for this was that ''Christ arose from the dead on the eighth day, the day of Helios.'' [Chapter 2, book by D. Fideler].

"Helios was seen as the heart of the celestial pattern, and his physical aspect was considered as the lower manifestation of a higher principle.................."

"It is the higher self of each one of us that seeks re-incarnation by incarnating - a little bit at a time...." [Enlarged elsewhere. Taken from the chapter written by F. P. D. from the book 'The New Dimensions Red Book].

"The alchemical symbol for Mercury is [ picture not enclosed], which represents the androgynous state on all levels created by the union of the symbols for copper [or Venus] and iron [or Mars] in the Below and the union of the symbols for silver [or the Moon] and gold [or the Sun] in the Above. In 1807, English chemist John Dalton proposed using an eight - spoked wheel as mercury's symbol, which is similar to ancient Oriental ciphers for mercury [and the wheel of life]." [Chapter 10, 'Sorcerers Stone' by D. Hauck].

Understanding that universal framework...

"We speak of God, of the Son, his Word, and of the holy Spirit; and we say that the Father, the Son, and the Spirit are united in power. For the Son is the intelligence, reason, and wisdom of the Father, and the Spirit is an effluence, as light from fire...." [Athenagoras, early Christian apologist]. Analogy of something. Link to ''Logos'' [the 'Word'], its true meaning. Explained within.

"An idea is an event," according to Seth. It is therefore logical that any idea - in whatever sphere of activity, whether physically materialized or not - would have an impact upon our lives. The 'idea as reality' is another ancient concept which was formalized early in Western civilization by Plato and which has been retained by many philosophers down through the ages. But rather than discuss this concept in abstract terms only, Seth develops it to its logical conclusion. All ideas, thoughts, and areas of concentration help create a dynamic and continually interrelating universe with the 'idea' playing as important and as tangible a role as any physical event." [Introduction to the book 'The Seth Material' by J. Roberts].

As a side note ''The Seth material'' [for this reader] is an example of the definition [in part, or whole] of the word ''incarnation'' as opposed to ''reincarnation,'' relative to Jane Roberts - Just as Lahiri Mahasaya is - relative to the person whose autobiography is being written about. Enlarged elsewhere. And/or...

"Father, Bhagabati Charan Ghosh, was kind, grave, at times stern. Loving him dearly, we children yet observed a certain reverential distance. An outstanding mathematician and logician, he was guided principally by his intellect. But Mother was queen of hearts, and taught us only through love. After her death, Father displayed more of his inner tenderness. I noticed then that his gaze often seemed to be metamorphosed into my mothers gaze." [Same book].

"There is a belief in Wales, and other places, that we shall mention later, that the bee herself was the only animal who came direct from paradise. That the bee is a symbol of a 'fresh' incarnation probably lies at the bottom of the old myth of Glaucus, the son of Minos....."..........."The Greeks had a proverb: ''The siren heralds a friend, the bee a stranger.'' [Chapter 9, 'The Sacred Bee.' Mentioned elsewhere]. To evaluate correctly; before those first impressions take control; put ''honey'' or ''bee'' in the search box. Together with......

"This universe is Shiva's garden, meant for roaming in. Not for attachment, jealousy, aversion, anxiety, or enmity. This universe is the 'image' of Shiva, meant for his 'worship'. Destroy the concept ''universe'' and meditate on Shiva. This universe is the incarnation of Shiva. [From a Hindu perspective].............."This universe is a mansion containing the mirror of Shiva. Whoever 'looks' in it, feeling one with Shiva, sees His own images and reflections......"[Chapter 24, 'Play of Consciousness'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Understand the true meaning of ''meditate'' to understand those 'keys'. Try ''house''.

"Shiva = A name for the one supreme reality. One of the Hindu trinity of gods. Often understood .....as the destroyer of barriers [or boundaries] to ones identification with the ultimate self."[Glossary, same book].

"Vedanta = A school of Indian philosophy that emphasizes one supreme Principle, which is the foundation of the universe."[Same Glossary]. Anything? Hindu equivalent of that same 'framework'. It differs only from a different 'start' point. That start point, however, still has to be 'built' on. Link to ''wet/dry.'' Recall what its main symbol is.

"The Prophet was quoted as saying, 'I have seen my Lord in the shape of a beautiful youth'. [Link to ''youngest'' symbolism. Think on it]. Perhaps this is the manifestation of the child of the heart. The image is the mirror. It becomes a means, rendering visible that which is invisible. The truth of 'God most High' is exempt from and free of any kind of description, or any kind of image or form. The image is the mirror [key], though what is seen is neither the mirror, nor the one who is looking in the mirror. Ponder on that and try to understand, because that is the essence of the realm of secrets." [Chapter 9, 'The Secret of Secrets' by Al-Jilani]].

"The idea of meditation should not frighten you, because in your daily life you already perform many kinds of meditation; it simply happens. Your skills and talents are perfected solely through meditation. Without one- pointed attention, is it possible for a doctor to cure a disease, a judge to make his decision, a teacher to give a lesson? Without concentration, can one make an apparatus such as radar, cook food, drive a car, keep the rhythm in music, solve mathematical problems? A degree of meditation is required to achieve anything. But in all of these things, your meditation is directed toward the world, not toward 'god'' [or YHVH. Explained within].... [Chapter 5, 'Play of Consciousness' by Swami Muktananda].

Analogy of same principle..."Practitioner of Yoga, ''union'', ancient science of 'meditation' on 'God'. [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi']. And/or...

"The word ''Yoga'' comes from the sanskrit root yuj, which means ''to join'' or ''to yoke''. Yoga is a practical aid, not a religion." [internet]. Think on both to the real meaning of ''re-ligion''. Enlarged elsewhere.

That word 'meditation' therefore that can be used [amongst others] to define a subject. Both inner and external. That can be applied to work out all the enclosed, within this web page. Its dictionary [Concise Oxford] definition = ''To think carefully about something'' and/or ''a discourse expressing considered thoughts on a subject.'' ALSO ''to focus ones mind for a period of time for spiritual purposes or as a method of relaxation'' [key i.e., 'repetitive' and 'groove' link]. ''Spiritual'' - a link to this subject. ''Relaxation'' - a prerequisite to attain a state of mind in order to define anything - including subject material. All of which [aspects of], when thought about carefully have at its main core that familiar subject. Its main 'teaching' aid - the psyche. All aspects of which are represented with universal symbols from the dawn of human kind. Therefore the word 'meditation' [and what it implies] must have its own symbol - ''a waveless lake.'' Try the box to understand something further - if only within this subject. It can also determine someones final burial place. Or more importantly - why it was chosen. Proving therefore the validity of the subject. [''Verily, verily''. New Testament]. Regardless of ones first impressions of it.

"For silence is the sign of real contact with the 'spiritual' world and this contact, in turn, always engenders the influx of forces. This is the foundation of all 'mysticism', all gnosis, all 'magic' and all practical esotericism in general." [Extract from the book by Tomberg].

Question. What ''symbol'' represents it?

"We are dealing with fragments of very ancient oral tradition that are like pieces of patchwork that have to be assembled into a coherent fabric." Try ''garment'' in the usual box.

As an example..."The Church fathers understood the myths born from pagan thought and imagination in a quite general way as veiled presentiments of the Logos, who became fully revealed in Jesus Christ..." [Comment in the 'Afterword' to the book by Tomberg - made by Cardinal Hans Urs von Balthasar ]. Recall what ''logos'' implies.

Another example of those ''fragments'' - that when put together define the 'whole'...

..."A third, less clear cut transposition will be referred to briefly: that of the ancient magic/alchemy into the realm of depth psychology by C. G Jung. The author's 'Meditation on the Tarot' are in the tradition of the great accomplishments of Pico della Mirandola and Franz von Baader, but are independent of them. The mystical, magical, occult tributaries which flow into the stream of his meditations are much more encompassing; yet the confluence of their waters within him, full of movement, becomes inwardly a unity of Christian contemplation." [Same author; same 'Afterword' ]. As it does with...

...''the confluence of their waters'' - which determines and explains the reason for the chose and selection [as a representation] of the beginnings of a journey - to those - no less - than the Children of Israel, i. e.,the Nile delta. Simply because those ''fragments'' are UNIVERSAL. From the dawn of HUMAN KIND. And if the 'divine bit' is truly understood - the implication then is - even before 'it' became a twinkle in the 'creators' eye.

Question. Fact or fiction - a possibility or not?

banksy"In these pages, beloved mythologist Joseph Campbell explores the Space Age. He posits that the newly discovered laws of outer space are actually within us as well, and that a new mythology is implicit in that realization. But what is this new mythology? How can we recognize it? Campbell explores these questions in the concluding essay, '' The Way of Art,'' in which he demonstrates that metaphor is the language of art and argues that within the psyches of today's artists are the seeds of tomorrows mythologies." [Back cover to the book 'The Inner Reaches of Outer Space: Metaphor as Myth and as Religion' by J. Campbell].

Strangely that same 'form'[in reference to 'eight' symbolism] when laid in the 'horizontal' position represents mathematics 'infinite' symbol. Hence the link to 6823. Both ‘numbers’ represented within the total ‘whole’, i.e., [19]. The micro/macro within the collective. [Nineteen represents; in part; the 'collective' effort. See A. Schimmel books].

A world wide conspiracy over thousands of years? Or maybe, something more genuine? Sense or non-sense. A possibility or not? Fact or fiction?

That same result that could be the beginnings of an insight; an awareness. Like the proverbial primordial egg...waiting for something to develope;to become aware; too emerge; from those shadowy recesses, [as symbolised by the ‘Ascending / descending passageways’]...of the ‘mind’. Represented by that very ancient symbol. The primordial mound . The very same one that the great pyramid is sat / built on. The micro equivalent of the Macro.

'Ancient Aliens: Decoding the Cosmic Egg'. {Series 9. Episode 4}. Many keys mentioned . Unknown by narrators, i.e.,eye of Horus, caduceus, virgin and child, seeding, - all in relation to ''human consciousness''. But only attempted to be understood in that 'external sense of the word' i.e.,aliens from another planet. Define those keys to 'see' something in that INNER sense of the word.

That inspiration /idea, [‘Primordial mound’]...that could lead to the awareness of a possible journey, [represented in 'landscape' symbolism as a 'journey' between 'valley' and 'mountain', or in the Egyptian case, between 'quarry' and 'plateau', [higher/lower]. The micro within the macro.

silburyNeolithic equivalent = A mound of earth that over the course of generations [150 years] became known in the present day as Silbury Hill. Individuals bringing their own little mound of earth to create that larger one. That individual effort that finally represented the collective one. Both representing a 'known' state. The Micro within the Macro. That same mound surrounded by the Avebury serpent, the mid point of which on 'higher' ground but in line with that same mound. Indicative of something. ['Stonehenge: Walking Through History'. Channel 4. March 2015]. Can you by now tell what that something is?

Silbury hill - speculated on by Neil Oliver - ''its purpose unknown''. Was begun around the time of the arrival of the Stonehenge archer who came from the Alps. Anything?

North American equivalent..."Of all the ancient civilizations in North America, human hands have built no greater earthwork than the Monks Mound {Cahokia} near the confluence of the Mississippi river...[www.world-pyramids.com]. Made of different coloured soils; not common to local area. On top a {sacrificial?} temple of unknown purpose. Other examples elsewhere. Try ''silbury''.

Hebrew/Islam equivalent. "Has the story of Moses reached thee? Behold, he saw a 'fire': So he said to his family, ''Tarry ye; I perceive a fire, perhaps i can bring you some burning brand therefrom, or find some guidance at the 'fire'. But when he came to the fire, a voice was heard: ''O Moses! Verily i am the lord. Therefore put off thy shoes: thou art in the sacred valley Tuwa. I have chosen thee. Listen then to the inspiration i have sent thee."... ''Verily, the hour is coming - my design is to keep it hidden - for every soul to receive its reward by the measure of its endeavour."..."And what is that in thy right hand O Moses? He said, ''It is my rod: on it i lean; with it i beat down fodder for my flocks; and in it, i find other uses. God said, ''Throw it, O Moses." He threw it, and behold it was a snake, active in motion. God said, ''seize it and fear not: We shall return it at once to its former condition."..."In order that we may show thee two of our greater signs." [Quran 20:9-23]. Valley in relation to 'plateau' [Sinai].

I.e., "This was the valley [Tuwa] just below mount Sinai, where subsequently he was to receive the law. In the parallel mystic meaning, we are selected by trials in this humble life, whose valley is just as sacred and receives gods glory just as much as the heights of Mount Sinai if we but have the insights to perceive it." [Note 2544. Same book].

'Valley' = ''law''? 'Heights' = ''grace''? Understanding that {even just its possibility} gives an idea upon the word ''Rostau''.

If Mr Albert Yu-min lin..that American/ Mongolia student.. had understood the ‘esoteric’ side to his eventual findings he would know as was the case with khufu that no body will be found within the temple within the mountain. Only the understanding of this final yet first recorded subject; from the oral to the written word; offers those clues. Those same clues, [‘keys’] that can be understood by all. As the Jesus fellow implied ."through me to the ‘father", i.e., A-C. Indicative of an understanding. An ‘inner’ one; in relation to that ‘outer’ one. Accessible to all, i.e., not just those with a certain I.Q. level or possible members of Mensa etc,[ how boring would that be]. It has to be something that all individuals can understand. Something that all can get their heads around...sooner or later.

Egyptian equivalent..."In the cosmogonic myths, akh appears as the aspect of spirit which conceives in advance what the object of the creation will be, a notion comparable to Plato's ideas. Akh pre-exists the 'creation,' and it is also its final goal, {Hebrew equivalent = 'Ain-Sof', i.e.,what it represents. Greek/Hermetic equivalent = Alpha/omega etc} - When, in a funerary text, the king is addressed in the other world with the words 'You are more akh than akhw', we should understand that pure spirit, after it has descended and incarnated in matter {i.e.,represented as top/down} - in order to become conscious in that condition, returns to the pre-existent akhw {but now} enriched with knowledge of itself and of all manifestation {i.e.,bottom/up}. Light is thus transfigured {if only in relation to a subject. Get it?}. Thus it is written, that the king returns 'to the right hand of the father'{Pyramid Texts, 267-268}. [Extract from the book 'Egyptian Mysteries'. All emphasis, this readers].

In other words, in its most basic form, one could describe those essential keys as the 'parts' or 'bits' of a jigsaw puzzle. Find those parts to see the whole picture. Understand those keys in the context of what ever else is being implied.

"In every seeking soul there is a portion, be it small or great, of the light of god. Every one who strives has intuition, be it perfect or imperfect. Knowledge did not end with one people, so that the doors of heaven are shut behind them, and the rest of the world is denied the possibility of obtaining more. Rather, the Giver of knowledge, who stands at the 'clear horizon, is not stingy with the unseen' [Quran 81:23-24].

"Horizon is nothing, but the limit of our sight." ['Beyond the horizon' by R. Parks].

Think about both paragraphs in relation to Horus ''in/of'' the Horizon. Found within.

The most evil age is the one in which the carpet of striving has been rolled up, in which the movement of thought is interrupted, the door of revelation bolted, the path of visions blocked". [Introduction. 'The Philosophy of Illumination' by Suhrawardi].

Or as the author of the 'Sirius Mystery' implies..."Thus we see the mythological code language of sacred puns in operation. Behind the myths lay concealed meanings which are decipherable by returning to the hieroglyphics and finding synonyms which form puns", [chapter eight]. Knock knock....'hear' anything?

"Hieroglyphs, it was thought at the time, bore witness to a primitive language invented by Hermes Trismegistus, a universal language that predated the Tower of Babel and was in principle comprehensible to all periods and people, if only it could be deciphered." [Chapter nineteen. 'The Secret Lore Of Egypt' by E. Hornung].

The dictionary explanation of the word ‘esoteric’ = "intended to be understood by a small number of people". That is until the reader gets ‘his/her head around it’...As any other subject proves. All subjects start off with a minority and depending on [present] and/or future 'interest' becomes sooner or later do they not... a 'majority'. Even someone reading the subject for the first time. Someone who's just beginning to get his / her head around those concepts/symbols in order to define that subject. Someone like you. Yes you. You the reader. Even you could find that location. The ‘easiest’ of the four, i.e., ’The beginners ‘level’.

Proving the viability of the subject. Proving the above quote by that first individual; Mr Jesus; who is representative of the ‘individual’ effort... as was Mr Muhammed is in relation to the collective one. Hence the link to the Arabic word ‘ummah’. Understanding the symbolism of ‘8oo’ in relation to the word ‘forest’. All explained within these pages. Including his final quote..."in plain sight". Together with...If horses ‘trampled’ on the same spot what form / shape would that take. Over time what would that ‘form’ contain? Do you see any links between those answers and ..’800’ and ‘forest’? Keep that in mind when considering his final quote, [a link to synchronicity]. As for verification. Satellite imaging or the equivalent of...should you have access to it.

"In Kings, the capitals have lily shaped tops, while in Chronicles the capitals are described as being bowl-shaped. In Kings, there is also mention of a further image of lilies..." [From the book by K. Gest].

revelation

Banksy was here?

One other quote that was made was that if Mr Khans grave site was disturbed then it would be a ‘sign’ for the ‘end’ of the world. Remember symbolic only. The Greek equivalent = ‘Apocalypse’. Same thing as the book of revelations. The ‘unveiling’ of something. The zodiac has different con- stellations ‘changing’ every 2160 years within that ‘great’ cycle and its relevance in mythology. In relation to a ‘new era’. [See 'Hamlets Mill' for verification]. Common parlance... "Out with the old. In with the new". Do you want to begin that ‘new era’? i.e., to satisfy that new curiosity. Then investigate and achieve what the character 'Horus' of Egyptian fame was 'created' to represent. Indicative of each and every one of us. Indicative of the start point of an understanding. Then attempt to find that location.

 

Either way what you have within these pages is equivalent to a ‘crash course’ in the above subject. If you can get your head around the enclosed...you may be surprised; once you take up that interest; how quickly you begin to understand the overall subject and its connections. In order to evaluate it...one way or the other. As one has to do in any subject.

Suitable books to begin that interest...enclosed within. Then you can ask those bigger questions. Especially that 64 billion dollar one. The same one that was implied at the beginning. Is there any ‘real’ substance to it, i.e., does life; in all its forms, really continue, and if so, why. What are those possibilities? Or is it just one big roller coaster ride. What do you think?

Thank yourself for the time and effort.

After thought.... If the above authors have a genuine insight on something that could be ‘real ’. Could it be expressed within, say, an equation. Could an hypothesis that A and B, [this world / That one.’ Esoterically’ also known in some cultures as ‘Above and below’, i.e., 'waters' above/below the firmament", [Genesis. ‘Firmament’ by the way is the Hebrew equivalent of that Primordial mound, as well as a link to the word 'horizontal' [i.e.,''horizon''] i.e., 'in-between' sea and rain water. 'See' it?]...be expressed as an Algebraic equation? If so, on what side of the equal sign would ‘B’ be placed if it were indeed ‘Primary’ over ‘A’. Left or right of the equal sign?

Could the above lead to an expression, if only in part; hypothetically; to such physics anomalies as to the weakness of gravity? Especially in relation to Edward Tellers contribution to the understanding of the ‘Fine structure constant’ in relation to gravity. Or as to why Deuterium can only be destroyed and not created inside those nuclear planetry explosions? Which is why most believe Deuterium had to be created shortly after ‘bigbang’. In other words...Does gravity leak from the fourth into the fifth OR from the fifth into the fourth? Or does it 'matter' ?

'Heart of the matter'.

As in the case with what is termed... ‘imaginary numbers’, [especially the ‘square root of minus one’]. Would they still remain ’imaginary’ especially in relation to ‘Prime’ numbers should ‘B’ exist? Or are they still valid...if only to the observer in ‘A’ ? What about in relation to the obsever in ’B’ ?, [hypothetical only of course]. As is the word ''observer'' and its true deeper meaning [with the above in mind, i.e.,'B' being primary over 'A'] in relation to the 'two slit / photon' experiment. The same could be said for the ''uncertainty'' clause of 'Quantum Mechanics'. If 'B' was a priority over 'A' - does it not make it less so?

Finally. As a ‘teaser’...If you ’are getting your head around it’. Fill in the missing bits... Mirror Particle ‘B’...Together with the ‘life’ part of ?? equals = ?? [Possible General Unified Theory? i.e., where science meets ‘re-ligion’, i.e., Crossover point? Empirical / spiritual]. Or as Mr Fred Alan Wolf says, ''Where science meets spirit.'' [i.e.,"Dark night of the Soul"]? ['Dr. Quantum's little book of big ideas'].

Don't forget those first impressions.... i.e.,"I do not believe in the possible future of mysticism in the old form. However, i do believe that the natural sciences will out of themselves bring forth a counter pole in their adherents, which connects with the old mystic elements". [Quote by Wolfgang Pauli, prologue, 'Deciphering the Cosmic Number' by A. Miller]. Tail end of something equates to the beginning of something else?

... ''the no man's land between Physics and the Psychology of the Unconscious [is] the most fascinating yet the darkest hunting ground of our times." [Back cover to the book, '137: Jung, Pauli, and the Pursuit of a Scientific Obsession' by Arthur Miller].

"Sacred science subscribes to a holistic approach that incorporates legends, history, experimental evidence, and traditional science to explore various hypotheses regarding the nature of reality.....The principle underlying Sacred science is that no separation exists between spirit and science. Spiritual principles should undergo scientific inquiry, and spiritual integrity should underlie scientific investigation." [ First page, first paragraph [Preface] to the book ' The Science of the Soul' by R. Siblerud].

"The time will come, when the secret wisdom shall again be the dominating religious and philosophical urge of the world: 'out of the cold ashes of lifeless creeds, shall rise phoenix - like, the ancient mysteries .....The unfolding of mans spiritual nature is as much as an exact science as astronomy, medicine, and jurisprudence". [Manly P. Hall].

"Linkage of Entropy with 'Becoming'.... When you say to yourself, 'Every day i grow better and better', science churlishly replies: 'I see no signs of it. I see you extended as a four dimensional worm in space-time; and, although good-ness is not strictly within my province, i will grant that one end of you is better than the other. But whether you grow better or worse depends on which way up i hold you. There is in your consciousness an idea of growth or "becoming" which, if it is not illusory, implies that you have a label "This side up". I have searched for such a label all through the physical world and can find no trace of it, so i strongly suspect that the label is non-existent in the world of reality'..... That is the reply of science comprised in primary law.....

....Taking account of secondary law, the reply is modified a little, though it is still none too gracious: i have looked again and, in the course of studying a property called entropy, i find that the physical world is marked with an arrow which may possibly be intended to indicate which way up it should be regarded. With that orientation i find that you really do grow better. Or, to speak precisely, your good end is in the part of the world with most entropy, and your bad end in the part with the least. Why this arrangement should be considered more creditable than that of your neighbor who has his good and bad ends the other way round, i cannot imagine". Together with....

"The linkage of entropy-change to 'becoming' presents features unlike every other problem of parallelism of the scientific and familiar worlds. The usual relation is illustrated by the familiar perception of colour and its scientific equivalent electromagnetic wavelength. Here there is no question of resemblance between the underlying physical cause and the mental sensation which arises. All that we can require of the symbolic counterpart of colour is that it shall be competent to pull the trigger of a [symbolic] nerve. The physiologist can trace the nerve mechanism up to the brain; but ultimately there is a hiatus which no one professes to fill up,..... Symbolically we may follow the influences of the physical world up to the door of the mind; they ring the door bell and depart". [Chapter five, ''Becoming'', from the book 'The nature of the physical World' by Arthur Eddington.

Arthur Eddington who became the Secretary of the Royal Astronomical Society, one of a few to understand General Relativity, well enough to explain it. Some, however called him, Eddington....136 + 1.

"It is shocking that such a profound insight into the philosophical implications of the theory of relativity has had little impact on physicists, it is dismaying that Godel's ideas have failed to catch the attention of philosophers.[ i.e.,that ''time'' is based only on our particular 'internal' experience, and not an actual feature of the physical universe. Customer review / Amazon].

"At first i thought of the Astral Plane [Explained elsewhere, before those first impressions take hold], as a parallel Space/Time continuum. The idea was heavily influenced by science fiction and, in retrospect, contained a germ of truth. But it was not the whole truth ; not even a good approximation of the whole truth. Later, it seemed the 'Plane' must be Time, considered as a fourth dimension. That idea came from Ouspensky, who argued that a three - dimensional creature operating in a two-dimensional world must produce miraculous effects. It might, for instance, escape from the 'walls' of a square by stepping over them. From a two-dimensional viewpoint, with no conception of height, a miracle would have occurred. Perhaps then miracles in the three dimensional world are simply manifestations of a fourth dimension, imperfectly 'experienced' as Time." [Chapter one, 'Astral Doorways' by J. Brennan].

And/or...''Time must never be thought of as pre-existing in any sense; it is a manufactured quantity." [Hermann Bondi - from the book 'About Time:Einstein's unfinished Revolution' / P. Davies].

" A few years later he [Wolfgang Pauli] was to come across the same numbers again in Carl Jung's psychology, based as it was in alchemy. He was adamant that ''in neither case was it by any means Mr. C. Jung who suggested it to me, nor was there an advance conscious intention for me to grapple with figuring out the problem of three and four. Consequently i am rather certain that objectively there is an important psychological and, perhaps, natural philosophical problem connected with these numbers." [Chapter 5, '137: Jung, Pauli and the Pursuit of a Scientific Obsession].

"...The lower three 'spheres' are related to worldly consciousness and the upper four are related to spiritual consciousness and 'enlightenment'. Therefore, the lower must be sublimated into the higher ones." [Extract from the book by S. Ashby].

Question. Coincidence?

"Psychology and esotericism set out to explore the darkness outside of our knowledge, whether it be dwelling in the 'unconscious' or the 'astral', the mundus imaginalis, or the dark side of the Tree of Life." [Extract from the book 'The Magister']. Define ''astral'' before those first impressions define something else. Link that answer up to that universal framework.

Rene Descartes, French philosopher, mathematician and writer..."While still a young soldier he had a dream in which an angel appeared to him, and revealed to him his mission in life...and how to achieve it. According to his own account of this dream, the 'angel' said to him, 'The conquest of nature is to be achieved by measure and number." [Page 477, 'The Sacred History'].

"Egyptian cubits filled with water, are called by me, basic load 'netto', and basic load 'brutto', I have given them these names because they were considered the standard amount that could be carried by a pack ass. In Akkadian these units are called 'imeru', which means "ass". The Masoretic text of the Old Testament uses a different punctuation of vowels under the consonants to distinguish between the term 'hmr' as referring to an ass, and the same term as referring to a unit of measure."

"Empty your mind. Be formless, shapeless, like water. When you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. When you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow....or it can crash. Be water my friend." [Taken from chapter five, 'The Warrior Within' {the philosophies of Bruce Lee} by J. Little.

"Nothing in nature can bring the mind continuous, unchanging happiness, because the mind itself changes constantly. Although we have the same stomach, we don't want to eat the same food every day. Although we wear the same shape, we don't wear the same outfit every day. The secret of our wanting changes, is that the mind changes. If it were always the same, why would it look for change? If we know that, we can just allow things to change without clinging to them. If something changes, we should let it go - something else will come. We should watch the changes like passing clouds. But normally we don't want to merely watch them. We want to hold onto a section without letting go. Then the tension comes in. Changes are like flowing water. If you just allow water to flow, it is very pleasant to sit and watch. But if you want to arrest the flow, and keep the water to yourself, you will have to construct a dam. Then the water will resist the dam and try to escape. There will be a struggle. Although you may stop some of the water, another portion will overflow. So you must allow for spill out, or the dam will certainly break....All life is a passing show...If we learn to enjoy each change, we can recognize the beauty even in aging. A ripe fruit has its own beautiful taste. When we just allow things to pass, we are free. Things will just come and go, while we retain our peace."[ Page 99 / 100 'The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali'].

"Working in the same circles as Bacon and Newton, Jan Baptiste Van Helmont wrote, 'There is a book inside us, written by the finger of 'god', through which we may read all things." Michael Maier also wrote...' To drink the interior life in a long draft, is to see the higher life. He who discovers the interior, discovers what is in space.' ....In all these sayings there is a clear implication that the key to scientific discovery somehow lies within." [Chapter 23, 'The Secret History of the World'].

"Newton believed that god had set humankind a series of tests in the forms of messages encoded in ancient monuments like the Great pyramid, in ancient texts like Genesis and in the very fabric of nature itself. Gods plan was that humanity would be intrigued by these mysteries and continue to develop the 'faculty of intelligence' until the time came when it would be able to crack these codes. Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, Newtons rival in the devising of calculus, made his advances while studying the Jewish numerical mysticism of the Kabbalah. Isaac Newton drew deeply on the philosophical approach of Jacob Boehme. Boehme's 'idealism' had led him to look for a unifying principle that held the universe together and put everything within it in place. For Boehme, it was a law of 'love' or 'desire' which he called the lubet. Newton carried the search for a universal principle over from 'idealism' into materialism and called it gravity." [Emphasis, this readers, chapter 38, 'The Sacred History]. Recall what 'idealism', in the main, is a representation of.

"Time is at the heart of all that is important to human beings." [Bernard D'Espagnat. From within the book by P.Davies]. Try ''time''.

'Spiritual' analogy?..."After the crucifixion, Mary Magdalene goes to the cave tomb of Jesus, she finds it empty...The 'Treatise on the Resurrection' teaches: 'The Saviour swallowed death. You must be perceptive, for by this i mean that he laid aside the corruptible cosmos. He exchanged it for the incorruptible 'eternal' realm. He raised himself up, having 'swallowed' the visible by means of the invisible {'horizontal/vertical' link - this readers input} - and gave us the 'way' to our immortality. This is why Paul said we have suffered with him, and arisen with him, and ascended with him.'...If, as Paul urges, we can understand the mystical meaning of this allegory and 'imitate' Christ, then we will also discover we are 'immortal'. According to Valentinus: 'When we 'destroy' the cosmos and we ourselves are not destroyed, then we know we are 'Lords' over the whole of creation and over all 'decay'." [From the book 'Jesus and the Lost Goddess'. Mentioned elsewhere. Emphasis, this readers].

Cronus who also 'swallowed' something.

Gravity...."most commonly recognized and experienced as the agent that gives weight to physical objects, and causes those same objects to fall towards the ground when dropped from a height."[ Wikipedia / ''gravity''].

One encompasses the other? Attract / repel? And/or convex/concave?

"That year [1934], in a lecture he gave in Zurich, he underlined the importance of eliminating the infinities that persisted in quantum electrodynamics and drew attention to the theories relationship to our understanding of space and time. The solution to this problem, would require "an interpretation of the numerical value of the dimensionless number [137]."

Analogy: "It was within the awareness of the vision that there was no space or time within the cube itself." Find it to understand it - before asking Yes or No?

"A future theory, must bring about a deep unification of foundations." [Both quotes by W. Pauli].

"In recent years Roger Penrose has made a pioneering attempt to combine neurophysiology with physics. He suggested that structures within neurons - microtubules - could be the seat of the quantum computations that are the dynamics behind thinking. But these are not simply logical computations, because quantum physics, which includes the uncertainty principle, and the concept of ambiguity, introduces an indefinable extra ingredient - intuition. This element is not addressed in any of the research programs mentioned here, and is a critical shortcoming. Pauli and Jung emphasized its importance, as did Einstein and other scientists when they recalled how they had made their discoveries. The puzzle of how we reason, how we think - of how we create knowledge from already existing knowledge and how we draw conclusions that go beyond the premises [or 'boundaries'?] , cannot be solved by logic alone." [Same book].

This subject does include that one missing ''element.'' From 'its' beginning to the present date. Found within. [Try ''intuitive'' as well as ''intuition''].

Question. If that assessment turns out to be a valid one. What does that imply?

"We are stuck with our own intuitive stranger...By accepting our inner stranger, we may come to a better understanding of our own minds." [From the program 'Horizon' {BBC2?} 'How You Really Make Decisions' by Daniel Kahneman].

"When they become self-aware like 'Adam', [key] they may reveal news of the 'Knower' and that which He knows. One of them dove down into the ocean of Oneness and said, 'I am the truth'. Another rode in a boat on the same ocean, and told of how near or far he was from shore. One looks on the outside and talks of dry land, while gathering shells, and the other plunges into the ocean and gets the pearl. One starts talking about the bits and parts of things, how they appear and function. Another begins telling of the Eternal one and then of creatures who live and die. One speaks of long curls of hair, the 'beauty' spot, the curves of her eyebrows, the 'beloved' man in dim candle light, [key] passing a goblet of wine. The other speaks only of himself and his opinions. And the other loses himself in idol's love, identifying himself with the monks rope around his waist. Each one speaks the language native to the 'level' he has reached, and it is hard to understand what he says.... You the seeker of understanding, you must strive [key] to learn the meaning of what they say." [Extract taken from a poem by the Persian Sufi known as Mahmud Shabistari. From the book, 'The Tree of Being' by Ibn Arabi].

"Those of a philosophical turn of thought may reflect that the candle is an image of humanity. The wax corresponds to the body, the wick to the mind, and the flame to the spirit." [Extract from the book 'ABC of Witchcraft: Past and Present' by D. Valiente].

"Our attitude should be that of reasonable enquiry and our interest that of the investigating philosopher, willing to accept an hypothesis on the basis of its possibility, but being unwilling to acknowledge as proven truth anything until we know it for and in ourselves. I, an aspirant to the higher mysteries, and one who has searched into them for a longer period than has been possible as yet to many, may write of things as yet impossible of demonstration, to you or the public, who may read these instructions. To me they may be and are truth and proven fact and for me that may suffice. For you they should be regarded as significant possibilities and hints to the direction in which truth may be sought, but beyond that you should not permit yourself to go." [Introduction to the book by Alice Bailey].

Link to 'objectivity'. Purpose and benefit of. As it is in any subject.

Something to ponder on: "When we think about the future, we envision a version of the present: that the TV shows, movies, and singers who matter most today will be the ones remembered in 100 years. History, says otherwise, Chuck Klosterman argues in 'But what if we're wrong? Thinking about the present as if it were the past'. The works that endure, he says, are the ones that future societies find meaningful, whether they're valued in their day or not. Herman Melville's 'Moby Dick' was scorned when it came out, and Franz Kafka was dead before 'The Trial' saw print. So which of today's writers will be remembered. Probably not Philip Roth or Jonathan Franzen, Klosterman says, but someone writing in obscurity {perhaps on the deep web}, representing an ultra-marginalised group and covering subjects that can be completely reinterpreted by future readers..." [From the 'Time Magazine' {June 2016} entitled 'Predicting the next great American novel'].
