Esotericism Part 2 Sec 01

 

 

nhyThat horizontal/vertical link to the true symbolism of the Sphinx and pyramids, [explained elsewhere].

"Horizon, is nothing but the limit of our sight." [Quote from the book 'Beyond the Horizon' by R. Parks]. Link to 'boundary' lines [keys].

"We shall show them our signs upon the horizons and in themselves, until it is clear to them that this is the truth." [Quran 41:53].

Egyptian equivalent...Horus in/of the horizon. Enlarged elsewhere.

Refresher and/or analogy: All this suggests that humanity originally possessed something which was a part of itself, but 'in heaven', and only to be found there; and that later 'it came down' in order to go through - in man - a tremendous 'evolution' on earth....There is this spirit in us which is IN the world but not OF the world. It is present in every human being...." [Page 12 'Spiritual Knowledge: The Reality and its Shadow' / Eleanor Merry].

Recall ''Life takes refuge in a sacred space'' in Part 1.

"To broaden ones outlook". Benefits of. Purpose of.

"The idea that we are not awake but live in a partial dream state from which we can awaken opens onto radically new horizons..." ['The Wisdom of the 4th Way']. Continued elsewhere.

"When, through contact with his 'higher' self [link to ''teacher'' of Dead Sea Scroll fame. Enlarged elsewhere] - he participates in the knowledge of the objective, and when through the climbing of the mountain of vision his perspective changes and his horizon enlarges..." Explained within.

As it does in ANY SUBJECT. Yes or no?

''Vision'' in relation to: "bazon {'vision'} is derived from baza ''to see''..." [Page 238 'Guide for the Perplexed' / M. Maimonides]. Try ''vision'' Part 3.

And/or: "Vision is the heart of seeing things invisible." [The Sacred Order of the 'Blinded Wanderer']. 'Planets'?

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

One 'peak' or two? Waxing or Waning?

As seen from a different perspective: "The manifestation of Atum-Ra between the twin peaks of the mountain of the horizon." [Picture of same, page 256 'Temple of the Cosmos'].

'Signs of the Gods' by Erich V. Daniken. Understand this subject to define what those 'signs' truly mean.

''Horizon of the Aten''?

''Manifestation'' of something relative to the ''Seat of First Occasion'' in relation to ''He who Walked with God''. A top/middle/end. Head in relation to feet. North in relation to South. Or would that be vice-versa?

'By endurance we conquer'. Ernest Shackleton. Try 'Struggle''.

Refresher: ''Where good deeds are ships on which to ride the waves."

'The highs don't last forever, but then neither do the lows'.

Side note: "The Pictish 'crown' descended in the 'female' line. Here the oculus {'eye'} survives strongly on the bows of boats." [Page 126 of the book by T. Lethbridge].

horizonAnalogy {that very first one?}: "Oceanus is proposed as the god who rules the river of the same name that was said to encircle the earth and into which the Sun set each night. Experience of those who has 'sailed' the wide seas beyond the horizon {'seat of first occasion'?} - visible from land, and had never come across such a 'river', must raise doubts about the Greeks taking this as a literal concept. If, however, Oceanus is designated as god of the horizon, then another part of Homer's universe falls into place. In hot climates, the line where the skies meet the earth can be disturbed by dust and atmospheric turbulence and may appear to be a shimmering band, perhaps even like sunlight reflected {'moon'?} from a river." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Sun / moon - in the abstract sense of the word - as a means...?

Follow the title of the book to 'see' it in its broader context.

dawnA working example: "Immediately, everything fell into place, We instantly perceived other, less obvious, connections between the two men. 'So you suggest that Alkindi's view of alchemy, though expressed in very different terms, resurfaced in the writings of Boyle?' We were restating the obvious, for already we had been enlightened by this remarkable man. Everything had been made clear to the consciousness soul, reflected from the surface of that eternal river..." ['The Zelator'].

Follow the title of the book to 'see' it {reflected?} in its broader {universal?} context.

That number three represented in the tri-root of the Arabic language/alphabet. The reason why each word in Arabic has many subtle nuances to it...as anyone with a basic understanding of linguistics knows. Which is especially important in helping to understand any subject, including this one.

'The Great Triad' by Rene Guenon.

No better author who accomplishes that than A. Schimmel. Especially her book...‘Deciphering the signs of god’. Just change the word ‘signs’ to ‘keys’ {and/or vice versa} and you should understand at whats being hinted at. It also indicates the Quran/s true purpose in relation to those ’signs’ and their benefit to the reader...,by way of ‘reason and understanding’.[keys], both words that are constantly used throughout.

'Signs of the unseen' by J. Rumi

As is the word 'inspiration' [key], by Mr J. Michell within his book 'The New View over Atlantis'. Enticing the reader to understand that same framework, ['lower' half] 'by way' of his own knowledge of 'Landscape' symbolism, just as Gurdjieff and Plato do within their own chosen subjects, [explained elsewhere]. 'Inspiration' in relation to reason and understanding.

horizon2

''You are in my heart...There is no other who knows you...Only your 'Son' whom you have taught your ways and might...When you have dawned they live...When you set they die...All 'eyes' are on your beauty until you set..." ['Great Hymn to Aten']. All as a means...?

"And so we have by our command sent inspiration to you: you did not know what revelation was or what faith was; but we have made the Quran a light with which we guide such of our servants as we will; and truly you are guiding to the straight way, the way of god, to whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth; witness how all affairs incline towards 'god'." [42:52-53].

'The {dawn}ing of a new day' - relative to an understanding.

Something to ponder on {landscape equivalent?}: And/or as seen from a different perspective: "It is the mystery of 'tears' - and of inspiration - that the 14th Arcanum of the Tarot aims at in particular. It is the spiritual exercise dedicated to inspiration. Inspiration... is not something that not simply happens, as in the case of vision...Rather, it is the co-activity, the concerted activity of the higher Self and the lower self. It is essentially the flow emanating from two 'vases' at once...It represents the knowledge of how to be active and passive at the same time. Active, in what concerns the question or demand. And passive in what concerns the answer or solution...It is a matter of simultaneous activity and passivity...It is inspiration in common which underlies the mental and symbolic language common to Hermeticists - the language of analogy, the marriage of opposites...The ardent belief that all is knowable and revealable..." ['Letter 14' from the book 'Meditations on the Tarot'].

"The morning is wiser than the evening.'' Proverb quote of the 'Even' people. Reindeer herders. Alexei Solodikov. {Russia with Simon Reeves. BBC1. Episode 1}.

Shepherds?

And/or 'Mercury' as a means...? Enlarged elsewhere.

That 'lower half' [i.e., represented as a 'potential' still 'dormant'; still an ''unknown'' quantity; therefore represented more often than not as 'shadow' and/or 'animal' / basic instincts aspect], as implied by the Celts with Cernunnos, or Cronos of Greek fame, [explained elsewhere].

The Greek 'Pan' another representation of the lower within the higher, but now in relation to Zeus, i.e.,'shadow' part of same ['lower',i.e.,now the start point of a 'learning process' within the 'higher' divisions]. Hence the reason why he lives in a 'shallow cave'.... 'A wild and unkempt place'. ['Higher' part of 'Zeus' = Apollo]. All within a 'development' of same, i.e.,recall what 'Zeus' represents. Pan / Apollo, represent; amongst others; both negative/positive within same. Finally, what does 'Zeus' truly represent.

A {deeper?} head scratch, in respect to a further 'development'..."Long ago it was said at the time of the crucifixion, a strange voice was heard, calling out across the seas: 'Great Pan is dead', and this was thought to mean that all the old gods and all their ways had been killed because the One True god had come. This is not quite accurate; though there is truth in it. Pan was not dead, but something connected with 'death' did come to earth. It changed." [Extract from the book by G. Knight]. Try ''grace''. Its intent and {purpose?}.

north-wind

When {Banksy?} or the north wind blows? Djedefre?

The Western way describes the same - in relation to ''pan'' - or more importantly, what it represents / implies i.e., with the same intent; with the 'sisters at the back of the North wind', i.e., from an 'unconscious', 'unknown' [but now with 'anima' in mind] - start point, i.e.,recall what the 'feminine' aspect; in some form or other, is a representation of. Therefore by the same logic ''pan'' in one form or another has to represent more 'shadow' than 'anima'. If only from the 'male' perspective? ['Power within the Land'. Mentioned within].

''Denial of an aspect of wholeness is the key ingredient in the formation of the shadow." ['Mysteries of the Dark Moon' / Demetra George].

Patriarch / Matriarch?

Side note: Understanding all the above - gives clues to understanding the following: "The god Pan is sometimes connected with Saturn, being a 'goatly' figure. The word 'panic' comes from Pan as does the prefix 'pan'. For example a pan-African conference is a conference in which all the counties of Africa are represented. So 'pan-' something, is a collection of things, a community of things celebrating their difference, and in that sense their sameness and unity as well. Pantheism is a celebration of the invisible {unmanifested?} god present in the multiplicity of everything in nature, and in the world of the senses." ['Saturn, Chiron and the Centaurs'].

Aspects of 'nature' used to 'manifest' something - if only in defining subject material.

As one example: "If truth were the same for everyone, then things would indeed be simple. But it is not. Truth is a concept, and so varies with the individual as situations and backgrounds vary....Do not confuse truth with Law. A group of men may make a law, and by so deciding it becomes truth within his tribe - but man-made truth only. Another group may recognise a law of nature which is universal to all creation - and this is truth - but truth not made by man. And then of course there are those grey area's of spiritual morality which are neither black nor white, but remind us that there no absolutes in creation. Truth which is derived from the patterns of nature, is the closest we can come to Absolute Truth. This is why the Druids founded 'colleges', where all learning and philosophy is patterned after natural phenomenon: the cycles of seasons, the science of rainbows and light, the ways of beasts {'cattle'?} or stars...'Natural philosophy' we call it. These teachings are not from the 'hand' of men - but from the Hand of 'He who dwells in The Beyond {that ''bit''?}. And so certain learnings and truths are clearly identified beyond others..." [Page 218 of the book by Douglas Monroe].

Try ''Mona''. All as a means...?

'How to Connect With Nature' / Tristan Gooley.

mm

Back of the head ? Or 'heart' {Antares?} of the 'dragon? Spirit/soul? ''Seat of First Occasion''?

As seen from a different perspective {top/down?}: "Brown says that the stars in the 'Bow' were the Persian Gau...others were called the Archers Eye. Ptolemy catalogued them as a nebulous double star - among the first to be so designated...With the Chinese it was a Flag Staff...In Arabia it marked the 'back of the head' earmarked the 19th manzil, called the Bright One of that lunar station...The 19th manzil lay in the vacant space from the upper part of the figure towards the horns of the Sea Goat and was known as Al Baldah - The City, District - for this region is comparatively untenanted. It was marked by one scarcely distinguishable star, and was bounded by six others in the form of a Bow, the Arabs Kaus which, however, was not our Bow of Sagittarius. It also was the Necklace {menat?} and the Ostrich Nest; while the space between this and the preceding mansions was designated ''the head of Sagittarius and his two locks''... " [Pages 355 - 359, {'Sagittarius'} from the book 'Star Names and Their Meanings'].

Put those keys together to take something further, i.e.,''flag/pennant'' etc.

N.B. Unused Bow found in the tomb of Tutankhamun.

Side note: "An Egyptian astronomical calendar of the 15th century before Christ, associates it with Antares in the immense sky figure Menat - and Lockyer claims it is one of the objects of worship in Nile temples, as it was in the temple of Venus in Italy...In India it was known as a Pearl, Gem or Coral Bead...known also as 'Outcast', possibly because of its remote northern situation far outside the zodiac, whence, from its brilliancy, it was arbitrarily taken to complete the series of Hindu asterisms...It is interesting to know, that the first photo of a comet was of Donati's, near this star {28th Sep. 1858}. Ptolemy specified its colour as ''golden red'' others of variable tinge...Generally it has ''figured immemorially in the short list of visibly fiery objects'' {15?}. Its rich colour, in contrast with the white of Spica, the deeper red of Antares, and the sapphire of Wega, is very noticeable when all can be taken in together {'line of sight'?}, at almost a single glance, on a summer evening {'zenith'?}. [ Information on 'Arcturus' / {Bootes} 'Star Names and Their Meaning' And/or page 162/121].

And/or: "The northern region is adorned with these stars, as a beautiful woman is adorned with a collar of pearls strung together, and a necklace of white lotus flowers, a handsomely arranged one. Thus adorned, they are like maidens who dance and revolve {'spiral'?} round the pole - as the pole orders them {fate or karma?}." And/or "Professor Whitney tells us: 'That to these stars the ancient astronomers of India, and many others...have attributed an independent motion about the pole of the heavens, at the rate of eight minutes yearly, or of a complete revolution in 2700 years ." ['Star Names and Their Meaning' under Ursa Major].

Try ''collar'' as a means...?

Continued: Or the Hindu equivalent {i.e.,landscape symbolism} within the Mahabharata epic, the mountain of which..."is said to be unapproachable by the sinful. It was rumored to lie in a remote and inaccessible region at the back {'unmanifest' link} of the Himalayas." [Chapter 13, 'The Sacred History' by J. Black]. The author using his knowledge of mythology; and esoteric knowledge of 'numbers'; [to name but a few], in the same vein as Gurdjieff and Plato do, with their own 'tools' of intent.

UNapproachable / Approachable - Represented with a negative/positive - ALL as a means...?

Neolithic equivalent of that unknown …yet to be realized aspect…that is now a known one. i.e.,rising from the back of the head, on limestone. Recall what its two main features, snake and ears, are symbolic of. What they represent. Found s/e Turkey. Close to Gobekli-Tepe.

A representation of something - waxing or waning? Found near Gobekli-tepe. Question. Playtime addicts?

As is - but from a different perspective, i.e.,a reflection of something {top/down?}: "The relationship of the moon to the sun proceeds accordingly to a wave pattern of increase and decrease in light, or separation from and return to the sun. The cycle begins at the new moon, when the moon is lost in the brilliancy of the sun...The cyclic relationship of the moon to the sun produces the lunation cycle; and every moment of the month and the day can be characterized significantly by its position within this lunation cycle...The solar impulse must be made workable - this is the first step. It must in due time reveal the purpose back of it to the conscious - which then can transform the instinctual and blind impulsion into a conscious, meaningful, and creative type of human activity - this is the second step. The first step refers to the waxing half of the lunation, the second to the waning period...." [Page 41 'The Lunation Cycle' / Dane Rudhyar].

Side note: {i.e., as seen from a different perspective}: "WATER is another symbol for subconsciousness. Water was the 'First Mirror', and because mirroring is duplication, or reflection, it is akin to REMEMBERING, in which an original experience is duplicated or reflected. Memory, indeed, is the root of subconscious activity, hence water is a correct symbol of the same. Water is related to Salt, because of the saltiness of seawater. The alchemical symbol for water is a blue, INVERTED, equilateral triangle."

Muses? {'nine' in total?}.

And/or: Self-Consciousness is the distinctly human aspect of consciousness of the WAKING mind which you are using to read these pages. Self-consciousness {'waxing'?} finds its highest expression in the process of deductive reasoning. It formulates the premises which subconsciousness {'waning'?} accepts as suggestion, elaborates by deduction, and carries out in the direction of physiological function and organization....Another alchemical symbol for self-consciousness is FIRE, chosen because of the form destroying nature of all self conscious activities {i.e., old into the new}. Its emblem is an UPRIGHT equilateral triangle." [Pages 18/19 'Occult Fundamentals and Spiritual Unfoldment' / Paul Foster Case].

Egyptian equivalent: Lake of 'fire'? and/or Hippo/Croc? Enlarged elsewhere.

Think about it all - in relation to that universal ''bit''.

ALL AS A MEANS.....?

Put those 'two' triangles together to 'see' it {gnosis?} from the Hebrew perspective.

Continued: "The Boreal Forest is the largest forest on Earth, the world's biggest terrestrial biome making up 29% of the worlds forest. It extends all the way around the northern end of the world...IT runs everywhere from the Tundra at latitude 70 to the southern tip of Cornwall at latitude 50...The ancient Greeks called the north wind Boreas and they called Britain Hyperborea, meaning the land behind the north wind...Reindeer were native to our land long ago...Our ancestors followed the deer trods...The reindeer mythos spread further south than the climatic limits of the Boreal Forest, down into ancient Greece. Pictures of a female deer bearing antlers and being caught by the hero Heracles are on several pieces of Greek art...The only female deer to carry antlers..." [Page 16-17 'Elen of the Ways' / E. Sentier]. Try ''deer'' / ''flint'' and especially ''Doe''.

Side note: Flint excavated using antlers. See part 3. Question. Male or female antlers? A sacred act?

"I ask you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the Gazelles or the Doe's of the field, that you do not arouse or awaken my love, until she pleases." [Song of Songs 3:5].

Understand this subject to define {among others} that most enigmatic of biblical texts. Try ''marriage'' / ''bride'' and ''child'' as a start point.

''The origins of Genghis Khan: At the beginning there was a blue-grey wolf, born with his destiny ordained by Heaven Above. His wife was a fallow doe. They came crossing the Tenggis. After they had settled at the source of the Onan River on Mount Burqan Qaldun, a son was born to them..." [First chapter, first paragraph of the 'Secret History of the Mongols' / Igor de Rachewiltz].

Coincidence?

Side step: An alternative 'point of view' - still within a 'landscape' - The 46 water birds - cast in bronze - Herons and Swans - found in the northern pits of the 1st Emperor of China {'Greatest Tomb on Earth: Secrets on Ancient China' / BBC ].

Analogy?..."46 is the number of years of the construction of the Temple {John 2:20} and also signifies the body of Christ, who appeared in this world 46x6=276 days after his conception. The numerical value of the Greek transcription of the name of Adam, which is 1+4+1+40, led medieval exegetes to the same conclusion: 46 was connected with the human aspect of Christ." ['Mystery of Numbers'].

hare1Alchemical equivalent..."The right choice is beyond the powers of the intellect, and C. R. elects upon the 'right way' by apparent accident. This is significantly by the actions of the black raven - an emblem found in alchemy as a symbol for 'dissolution'. It is a bird ever associated with both wisdom and with death. It is found in ancient Irish myth as the Morrigu, the great terrible goddess of the battlefield, who collects the souls of the slain. C. R. sees a white 'dove' and begins to feed it with his bread, whereupon the black raven appears and chases the dove, which flies off towards the south. C. R. runs after them, to find himself automatically upon 'one of the ways' and therefore unable to return for his 'bread' and belongings; by dint of a strong wind that blows from behind him {north?}. This is the 'breath' of the 'holy spirit', whose other aspect is the guiding dove." [Extract from the book by G. Knight. All emphasis, this readers]. For a 'connection'; try ''struggle''.

Question. What does the 'swan' represent?

N.B. The 'hare' and 'dove' - constellations at the 'foot' of Orion.

A working example - in the abstract sense of the word: "...This silence in itself is a mighty symbol. It is the stillness of the great feminine archetype, whether in the silence of the Sephirah Binah on the Tree of Life, the great Temple of form of all the spheres; or in the great silent UNmanifest Sea of the Ain Sof beyond Kether, the ultimate 'feminine principle'. In the silence a 'unicorn' approaches wearing a golden collar. It bows to the 'lion'. The lion thereupon breaks the sword in two, and casts the pieces into the waters of the fountain. The testing having been done, the way to the higher worlds is clear, and the lion no longer bars the way. The roaring lion in the path, the Dweller on the Threshold or Shadow Self, is no longer a barrier to progress. A white 'dove' now appears with an olive branch of peace and wisdom. The lion 'devours' it and is quieted, and the unicorn joyfully departs." [Extract from 'The Rose Cross and the Goddess' by G. Knight].

Hence: "...the single horn had been 'seeded' by the imaginative faculties...'' ['The Zelator']. 'See' it? ALL AS A MEANS...? Try ''horn''.

Cognitive faculty link?

Example of {in the 'natural' sense of the 'word'}: "I was the shyest creature in the world, but I had a lion inside me that wouldn't stay quiet." Ingrid Bergman.

Egyptian equivalent, Sokar; the falcon god; who is depicted as an aspect of something; at the ''back of the head.'' Picture enclosed of same. Find it to understand it, rather than leave all to those first impressions. Together with...''My Eye was behind them during the aeons that they passed far away from me.'' AND/OR "It was my Eye that brought them back to me after the aeons that they stayed far away from me." [Extract from the book by L. Lamy].

The eye of Horus in relation to UNmanifested / Manifested - as a means to an understanding. 'See' it? Other examples throughout.

nhy"A {practical?} example: "Whatever the image it always symbolises the nome's function in the development of our country, which is planned on the pattern of earths becoming. Thus the nome of Hermopolis has for an emblem, the hare, which in its mode of being and living symbolises terrestrial existence. The hare is used as hieroglyph in ''to exist''. Hermopolis is the city of the 'eight' Primordials, 'founders' of primordial earth, site of earliest 'life'.." ['Her-Bak']. Try ''becoming'' and/or ''being'' as a means...?

Follow the title of the book to 'see' it from the Egyptian point of view.

'Being and Time' / Martin Heidegger.

North or South? Question. What does 'green' represent?

Side note: "The ancient Egyptians...saw OSIRIS appear in the southern sky in the constellation of Orion, in the period immediately preceding the flood. But the flood itself was heralded by Isis...represented by the star Sirius, some time after the first reemergence of Orion from below the southern horizon...A person standing and facing south is the ''archetypal'' position by which the Egyptians orientated themselves in the ''Beloved Land'' {ta-meri}. One of the terms for ''south'' is also a term for ''face'', while the word usually used for ''north'' is related to a word that means "back of the head''. [Page 9 'Temple of the Cosmos' / J. Naydler].

Analogy: ''If once we accept this we are able to understand the full significance and efficacy of the signs which are the faces of the gods." [From within the book by C. Matthews].

'In profile' in relation to 'face on' ?

norrie's law

Pictish Stylized 'eyes'? Dog in 'lower half' of stylized 'bolt of lightening'? {''Bolt from the blue''?}. Question. What would 'higher' be represented with? LEAF? {therefore 'tree' symbolism} ? Oak / Apple or Thorn and why?

"In the Pagan Mysteries, beginners were known as 'mystae', meaning 'those with eyes closed', and enlightened initiates were known as 'epopteia' meaning, 'those who can see'." [From the book by T. Freke and P. Gandy].

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

A working example..."I should like to conclude this foreword with the final sentences of my ''Gedanken uber Dionysos'' {1935}: "Did the Greeks ever have such ideas about Dionysos as Otto's or these? They had it easier. For in myth and image, in visionary experience and ritual representation, they possessed a complete expression of the essence {''archetypal''?} of Dionysos. They had no need, as we do, to look for an 'intellectual' formulation, which will always remain incomplete." [From the book by C. Kerenyi]. Link to the 'Tower of Babel' i.e.,its purpose in defining something.

Question. What is that something?

"The mentality of ancient Egypt, argues the author, helps to free us from our present intellectual impasse, while ''symbolism'' must be recognised as the intuitive means of overcoming the limitations of reason." ['Symbol and the Symbolic: Ancient Egypt, Science, and the Evolution of Consciousness' / R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz].

As {one} example: "The 'Z' sign {i.e., referred to as lightening flash or Serpentine sign} - is an energy pattern that cuts across the cycle of the 'four elements', suspending all turning of the Wheel of Life and Change." [From Chapter 5 - Sacred Space - 'The Way of Merlin' / R. Stewart].

In other words, a representation - if only in the ritual and/or especially dance form {'spiral?} - sense of the word - OF E/S/W/N {'horizontal'} in relation {''cuts across''} to E/S/N/W {'vertical'}. ALL in relation to that universal ''bit''. As a means...?

Can you 'see' it? If you can then you begin to understand such {concepts?} as ''Morris Dancing''. Enlarged elsewhere.

A Mind set?

"Gnosis, is a feminine Greek noun, which means ''knowledge.'' It is often used for 'personal' knowledge compared with 'intellectual' knowledge {eidein}, as with the French 'connaitre' compared with 'savoir', or the German 'kennen' rather than 'wissen'...In Latin they simply drop the Greek 'G' and ''Gno'' becomes ''No'' as in 'Nosco' meaning to ''know'' and ''Noscentia'' meaning ''knowledge'' and 'Notus' meaning ''known..." [Wiki/'Gnosis']. Recall Part 1.

'The minds eye' {'third' eye?}.

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

Something ''cut Across''. Anything?

Analogy: "It is therefore impossible for a scholar to possess knowledge of these problems, whether it be through his own researches or through his 'masters' teaching - without communicating part of that knowledge to others. This cannot be done in clear words; it must be done sparingly by way of hints. We find in the words of some of our Sages numerous hints and notes of this kind, but mixed up with words of others and with other subjects. In treating of these mysteries, as a rule, I quote as much as contains the principle idea, and leave the rest for those who are worthy of it." [Page 211 'Guide for the Perplexed'].

A {working?} example: "Nonetheless, your courage is praiseworthy, and your sacrifice would have merit if there were not another solution besides your succession of hypotheses. But what if one could prove the possibility of a direct knowledge that reveals the reason for the existence of phenomena and gives us the keys to the laws of their genesis...Admit that it would be useless to refuse this, just as it would be useless to construct a building without first having established a permanent foundation." ['Journey into the Light']. Recall Part 1.

"Our lesson is to learn 'to be'. The freedom of being will extricate you from the oppression of doing. Herein lies the seed of knowingness that has the capacity to take you beyond all of this worlds knowledge..." [From the book 'The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself' by E. Pearl].

''Knowingness'' in relation to the meaning and purpose of such words as 'Gnosis', - by way of the Verb 'to be', i.e.,what it implies. Try ''to be''.

A working example: "....also the language of Plutarch in some passages appears to me to be deserving of more careful handling than has yet been accorded it, for a number of sentences seem to have been purposely phrased so as {'to be'} capable of conveying a double meaning." [ From the chapter 'The Mysteries of Isis and Osiris' within the book 'Thrice-Greatest Hermes: Part 1' / G. Mead].

Question. Double archway? As a representation of something? Think about it in relation to the 'double archway' on the north side of the Gt. Pyramid.

REFRESHER: Gnosis in relation to the ''cognitive faculty'' {i.e.,root of}. Question What 'number' represents it AND why?

Three titles with the same 'intent'. One from a 'known' point of view, the other 'unknown'. The third, 'becoming' known. Understand All three views, by objective reasoning..."Mount Analogue' by Rene Daumal, and 'Climbing Mount Improbable' by Richard Dawkins and 'Moving Mountains' by C. Bertschinger.

hatA 'real time' example of same..."For as long as i could remember, i had been visiting another 'dimension.' When i was two, i smashed my forehead in a fall, affecting the optic nerve and necessitating an operation. Perhaps the blow to the head triggered my psychic abilities; whatever the cause, one minute i was lying in hospital, the next i found myself in a totally different place. I was in a garden full of colour.......As soon as i entered i would find myself walking down a narrow path....i kept to the path as though i had an appointment....i would pass under an arch, turn right to climb up a grassy slope......At the top i would enter a small hexagonal building with a domed roof.....From the first, i had an inner knowledge of what to do. I would go to a chair, sit down and wait. After a while, someone would enter and sit behind me. Though i never looked behind, i somehow knew that this person had a thin face, kindly eyes and long light brown hair. He had no name, and he never spoke; we simply sat in silence. What seemed like moments later, i would stand up and leave. Instantly i would find myself back in the 'real' world." [Prologue to the book, 'Mind to Mind' by B. Shine]. Question. Animus or shadow archetype? Question two. Why does this subject have a fascination with same. Nothing more than an understanding of dream symbolism, from its beginning to the present date? Understanding that 'universal' framework gives a deeper meaning, a plausible one.

"The lengthened shadow of a man Is history, said Emerson." [Extract from 'Selected Poems' by T. S. Eliot].

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].

Question. What do you think?

Addition 'information': "In the Egyptian myths, the human headed god Ptah is said to have 'created' the world from dark clay. Ptah was from the ancient mystery center of Memphis, which in the ancient tongue was called Hi-Ku-Ptah. This ancient Egyptian phrase meant 'the Home of Ptah'. The Greeks lisped this Egyptian as 'Aegyptos', and from this imperfection modern Europeans derived 'Egypt' from it. In the recesses of the great temple at Abu Simbel, one still finds an image of Ptah. During the 20 days after 10 February, and for the same period after the 10 October, the sun strikes deep into the darkness of the funerary chamber. Its solar rays gild the stone deities in the chamber. Only three are bathed in its rays - the fourth image {Ptah} is scarcely touched, leaving it in the dark 'wilderness' during those 40 days of light...It seems that according to Egyptian mythology, the world was created by a god of shadows. In western creation myths, such 'darkness' is represented with a snake. This serpent of 'paradise' was at first merely a 'cunning' serpent, but later it was called..." ['The Zelator'].

Question. ''Transcendent third'' symbolism ? {i.e,,10 days = one third of something} together with ''four'' symbolism ? {i.e.,'4' aspects of the self}. Enlarged elsewhere.

The main point being - defining this first yet last subject - gets inside those heads - Heads that understand a subject - in order to arrive at those answers - sooner or later.

Head of the corner?

For a further head scratch - try ''cunning''.

logos

Food for thought..."Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of god." [Matthew 4:4].

"In Ancient Greek, Logos had many meanings, but non of them is ''Word,'' which is based on a translation of a translation. When the Greek New Testament was translated into Latin, Logos became Verbum; and when the English King James translation was made from the Latin version, Verbum became ''Word,'' twice removed from the original text''................."Among its many [true] meanings, Logos designates the power of ''reason,'' the pattern or order of things, the principle of relationship, and an organized articulation of something.".............."Logos has the same meaning as both the Latin words 'ratio' and 'oratio'. Ratio is the principle of Reason in its many senses, yet it is also ratio in a mathematical sense, as in continued geometrical proportion. Oratio is a discourse, an articulation, a setting forth of the ''ratio,'' or nature of things. Logos, as a principle, is the natural order of things, the principle of reason, relation, and harmony, which exists both within the natural fabric of the universe and within the human mind, [represented as ''shadow'' and/ or ''anima''. See it? This readers input]. It is the faculty whereby one thing is related to another through analogy, or the power of ''proportional insight.''.........."If we are to appreciate the Prologue to the Fourth Gospel and other 'mystical' writings, all of these meanings must be 'simultaneously' held in mind." [Chapter 3, 'Jesus Christ Sun of God'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Recall Part 1.

Try ''harmony'' - while recalling those 'three' universal {concepts?}.

"To become conscious of itself it makes itself simultaneously a subject and object." [From the book by T. Freke and P. Gandy].

"The science of the I Ching, indeed, is not based on the causality principle, but on a principle {hitherto unnamed because not met with among us}, which I have tentatively called the 'synchronistic' principle. My occupation with the psychology of the unconscious processes long ago necessitated my casting around for another explanatory principle, because the causality principle seemed to me inadequate for the explanation of certain remarkable phenomena of the unconscious {Wolfgang Pauli?}. Thus I found, that there are psychic parallelisms which cannot be related to each other causally, but which must stand in another sort of CONNECTEDNESS. This connection seemed to me to lie mainly in the relative simultaneity of the events, therefore the expression 'synchronistic'..." [Page 141, The Secret of the Golden Flower / R. Wilhelm WITH a commentary by G. Jung].

Try ''simultaneous'' to see subject material in the universal sense of the 'word' - since the oral tradition BEFORE ''the written word came into common use''.

"Those who listen to the word, and follow the best [meaning] in it: those are the ones whom god has guided, and those are the ones endued with understanding." [Quran 39:18; including parenthesis].

A {working?} example: "Why does it seem to me sometimes now, that i understand absolutely nothing?'' said one of those present. ''Formerly i used to think that sometimes at any rate there were some things that i understood but now...''It means you have begun to understand,'' said G. ''When you understood nothing you thought you understood everything or at any rate that you were able to understand everything. Now, when you have begun to understand, you think you do not understand. This comes about because the taste of understanding was quite unknown to you before. And now the taste of understanding seems to be a lack of understanding..." ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

Follow the title of the book to 'see' it {taste?} - in its broader context.

engravedSide note: Apply the above to define {in the broader base} - sense of the 'word' {foundation?} - the following: "A special case of the geometric reconciliation of opposites involves the Golden Ratio, or ''the section'' as the Greeks referred to it, which grows from the diagonal of the half-square. Quite a number of vases display its proportions because it offers artisans a particular powerful tool for guiding the viewers attention around a spiral of squares towards its ''eye'' - the compositions ''center of gravity'' where all diagonals cross. The architect, teacher, and writer Jay Hambidge rediscovered this geometry and called it 'dynamic symmetry'...." [Page 20 'Alexandria: The Journal of the Western Cosmological Tradition' / D. Fideler].

As one example try {'see'?} ''vase'' relative to the whole {i.e., subject material}.

Then try ''static/dynamic'' as a means...?

horus eye

An objective eye?

Continued: Egyptian equivalent..."The most ancient writings in our historical period are from the ancient Egyptians. These writings are referred to as hieroglyphics...The original name given to these writings by the ancient Egyptians is 'Metu Neter', meaning ''the writing of god'' or 'Neter Metu' or ''divine speech''. These writings were inscribed in temples, coffins and papyruses and contained the teachings in reference to the spiritual nature of the human being and the ways [or paths. This readers input] - to promote an awakening or resurrection..." [Extract taken from the book by S. Ashby].

Question. 'Tasting'?

hhhhh

Arthur/Bear/Dragon. Coincidence? All as a means….?

"The masculine principle, or Logos, thus came to be revered in the person of the Sun god; and the godlike qualities inherent in man, his capacity to achieve and to order, to formulate, discriminate, and generalize, were venerated in a sun hero {'Arthur'?} who undertook his twelve labours and slew the dragons of ignorance and sloth, thus acquiring consciousness, a spiritual value of a different order." [Chapter 3, 'Women's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern' by M. Esther Harding].

Question. 'Tasting'?. Representation of, i.e.,from something unknown; that 'unknown' that can be represented with 'water',i.e.,as an example [Hebrew] - Moses = ''Drawn from water''. Question. What symbol represents that 'action' ?

"Solomon 'built' the temple. David designed the temple. But it was Moses who prepared the foundations." [From the book by K. Gest. Emphasis, this readers].

12x12?

Question. ''...masculine principle...'' = Shadow or anima? or both? i.e., as the start point of a learning curve; if only in defining a subject.

'Mother of Dragons'?

Side note: "Another series of seven stars {i.e.,within the constellation Eridanus} was called in Bayer's text Beemin and Theemin. This last used by Bode and now in current use, is perhaps the Arabic Al Tau'aman and the Jews Teomim, the Twins. Grotius thought it came from the Arabic term for two medicinal roots; but Idler suggests that it is from the Hebrew Bamma'yim - In The Water - with the possibility of it being from a distorted form of Al Thalim, the Ostrich." ['Star Names and Their Meaning'].

''In the Water'' as opposed to ''Out of it''? Try Part 5 to take something further.

Any connection to those 12 stones in the sacred 'breastplate' together with what Urim and Thummim represent, i.e.,fate - positive and/or negative. One way or the other- depending on the individual.

As seen from a different perspective: " It is a common law that when two forces, male/female, positive/negative, unite, a third force is created. This could be where the concept of the religious 'Trinity' originates; the Father-Mother-Son or, in the Western religions where the feminine has been discarded, the Father-Son-Holy Spirit..." ['Truth Vibrations'].

Question. What was Moses renowned for - 'Law' or 'Grace'.

Question 2. Why?

"These things {i.e.,what the author defines as ''figurative language'', i.e.,keys/signs etc} - belong likewise to the mysteries of the Law; and although we have treated them in a general manner, they can easily be understood in all their details in accordance with the above remarks." [Page 249 'Guide for the Perplexed' / M. Maimonides].

izapa

IZAPA... Mayan equivalent? i.e.,''Izapa gains its fame through its art style...Sculptures of stelae, and also altars that look like frogs...The stelae and frog altars generally went together..." {Wiki/'Izapa']. Also situated at the base of a volcano...6th tallest mountain in Mexico...close to a river. Question. Obsidian link?

OR..."The first plane [i.e.,others define that 'first' plane as 'primordial mound'], is the only plane upon which the Initiation of the Logos is given, but it is this initiation of the Logos which marks the transmission from the involuntary to the evolutionary arc, [key] for it awakens the divine spark which has well and truly been called the 'god within' {'Son'?} and which evolves into union with the 'god without' {'Father'?}. [Chapter 21, 'The Cosmic Doctrine'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice." Martin Luther King. Think on it, relative to what this subject defines and represents within a ''u - turn." Understanding that universal framework defines all the above. Gives it a plausible logic.

"As David Kelley points out, the upturned frog-mouth glyph means ''to be born''..." ['Galactic Alignment']. Question. An awakening of something?

N. B. Close to 'Oak' Island = 'Frog' Island and 'Apple' Island. Coincidence? ['Curse of Oak Island'].

Try ''Apple''.

Side note: "Among early Arabs Fomalhaut {Southern Fish} was - the First Frog; and in its location on the Borgian globe is the word Thalim, the Ostrich - evidently another individual title...In Persia, known as one of the four Royal Star Guardians of heaven...portended eminence, fortune and power...The 2nd Frog was found within Cetus - The Whale - tail end of...Southern tail end of..." [ 'Star Names and Their Meaning']. Try ''map''.

Question. What would the ''Ostrich'' represent in the natural sense of the 'word'? i.e.,head in the sand / flightless / lays 'clutch 'of eggs - all in relation to it being a 'desert bird'?

Question 2. Why bother at all?

Continued: "Iris - in later times to be honoured as the goddess of the rainbow that arches across the sky - carries messages from the heights of Olympus {the heavens} to the Earth or into the sea. Homer says: 'Iris, fleet of the wind, was sent by Zeus to tell the bad news among the Trojans on earth - and did she wing her way till she came close up to the great shaker of the earth {Poseidon}.' In this messenger role she is thought to be associated with the concept of the 'dome' of the heavens and the 'arc' of the celestial sphere." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

A connection of something. Try ''dome'' as well as ''arc'' / ''rainbow'' - to understand something other than the obvious.

Side note: ''Iris is a genus of 260 species of flowering plants with showy flowers. It takes its name from the Greek word for a rainbow, which is also the name for the Greek goddess of the rainbow, Iris. Some authors state that the name refers to the wide variety of flower colors found among the many species.[3] As well as being the scientific name, iris is also widely used as a common name for all Iris species, as well as some belonging to other closely related genera. A common name for some species is 'flags', while the plants of the subgenus Scorpiris are widely known as 'junos', particularly in horticulture. It is a popular garden flower." [Wiki].

Gilly? {flower}. Game of Thrones.

And/or: ''Dome of stones'' discovered over what became known as the ''vertical shaft'' - as reported by Bobby Restall in his daily diary while on Oak Island.

Side note: "There is a great mystery to be unveiled in the seventh house: the mystery of the obvious - perhaps the greatest mystery of all mysteries!" [Page 73 'The 12 Astrological Houses'].

Libra?

And/or: "Ancient symbols have great value - if only because they compel one to avoid the pitfall of ''taking things for granted''. By making things difficult, they force the mind to dig down into the roots of reality and to fathom deeply unconscious vital processes." ['The Zodiac as the Universal Matrix' / Dane Rudhyar].

Cancer?

I began to explain how crystals are actually...{continued elsewhere].

A working example: "Much has been written on the gnostic, moral and 'magical' Great Arcana, and no doubt still more will be written in the future - their themes being central and inexhaustible at one and the same time. Here it is a matter simply of considering the Great Arcanum of the marriage of intelligence and wisdom in the context of the two other Great Arcana of the tradition. For the three great arcana, are truth to tell, only three aspects on three planes of one single Great Arcanum of the marriage of opposites in the head, in the heart and in the will. In other words, it is a matter of three aspects of the sole Great Arcanum of the cross, since it is always the cross which realizes the marriage of opposites..." [Taken from 'Meditations On The Tarot' by Tomberg]. Horizontal / vertical link. Try ''polarities''.

"...in the head; heart; will..." = ''thinking; feeling; willing''. Anything?

''The symbol of the 'lower' will is the altar...'' {East?}.

Question. ''Will'' = Law . ''Heart'' = Grace? All as a means...? Try ''Moses''.

Analogy {i.e.,as seen from a different perspective}: "You need five lights because traditionary you always have one in the center of the altar to represent the Light of the Universe, or the spark of god at the center of your working, and one candle at each point of the compass." [ 'Magic in the Aquarian Age' / Marian Green]. Try ''spark'' Part 1.

Quintessence?

And/or: "To sacrifice a 'lower' value to a 'higher' value is to give substance and power to the desire which has been 'sacrificed'. If this higher value is of a 'spiritual' order, the spiritual power is attracted by this desire, and givers to the sacrificer a power of domination over his lower states." ['Journey into the Light']. Representational of.

Scorpio?

Try Part 1 to enlarge on the word ''sacrifice'' before that inner voice {first impressions?} suggest something else. Then try ''teacher''.

A working example {i.e.,something hinted at}: "You have spoken about emotional balance without giving us the means of achieving it. Between the lower stage of our emotional impulses and the stage where the spiritual being comes into play {i.e.,'higher'}, i must confess that i don't see the steps in between...'That's a bit of an exaggeration, Thomas. I'm showing you the swamp into which you're sinking, and on the other hand the firm earth of your 'suprahuman' goals: do you expect me to take the jump for you as well?'..." ['Journey into the Light'. Includes italics]. Try ''great step'' for a further connection.

Refresher: "As David Kelley points out, the upturned frog-mouth glyph means ''to be born''..." ['Galactic Alignment']. Question. An awakening of something? Representational of.

Analogy of same - but now simplified..."Hermeticism knows the law of the ''marriage of opposites'' and it knows that inspiration is the marriage of activity and passivity in the soul." [Same book].

In its most basic form - one could say - An expression of [the beginnings] of a learning curve. The real question however, [if only to this reader] - is why. Why express anything? Understanding what they all imply by the 'divine bit' relative to each life form; especially the human one - gives a plausible answer.

Possible empirical analogy, ".......Put another way, when we said that the electron is 'somewhere within the wave' we really meant to say that it is simultaneously everywhere in the wave! This is how we must think because if we suppose the electron is actually located at some specific point, then the wave is no longer spread out and we lose the water wave analogy. As a result, we cannot explain the interference pattern....

photon3

Think about it in relation to that ''bit''. If only in defining a mind set.

....Again it might be worth rereading ['repetitive' link. This readers input], the above piece of reasoning because it motivates much of what follows. There is no sleight of hand: what we are saying is that we need to describe a spread-out wave, that is also a point like electron, and one possible way to achieve this is to say that the electron sweeps from source to screen following all possible paths at once. This suggests that we should interpret an electron wave ['plateau' / 'valley' link- in the micro sense]- as describing a single electron that trav els from source to screen by an infinity of different routes. In other words, the correct answer to the question 'how did that electron get to the screen' is...'it' traveled by an infinity of possible routes, some of which went through the upper slit and some through the lower one. Clearly the ''it'' that is the electron is not an ordinary everyday particle. This is what it means to be a quantum particle." [Chapter 3, ' The Quantum Universe:Everything that can Happen Does Happen'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Remember [before those first impressions take hold], a possible analogy, nothing else. Some individuals especially within that 'new age' phenomena, would latch [key] onto the above simply because of Einsteins ''spooky at a distance'' quote. This subject however once understood by research and analytical discipline justifies that ''possibility.'' Understanding what all cultures infer by the ''divine'' word in relation to that universal 'framework,' makes 'sense' [of the above] from both a 'spiritual' and empirical viewpoint. Especially when taking into account the Fine Structure Constant. Mentioned elsewhere. As a further exercise to add [or detract] from that possible 'evaluation', put ''simultaneously'' in the usual box,i.e.,what does it imply?

Hence:

"By ''Spirit'' we mean the Life-Power. A glance at your dictionary will show you that ''spirit'' is derived from the Latin Spiritus, whose root meaning is breath. Closely akin to the Latin noun are the Greek 'Pneuma', the Hebrew 'Ruach' and the Sanskrit 'Prana'. Each of these nouns signifies both ''breath'' and ''life''.....Philosophers have always attributed a 'mental quality' to this principle." [P. F. Case. Vol 1]. 'See' it?

"A new perspective is being sought in the midst of this turmoil, a new relationship with others, nature, and with the spiritual aspect of our being. There is a new sense of universal relatedness and of vistas yet untapped in the human potential.

'Heel stone' at Stonehenge {unfinished?}.

"The standing pillars found in various enclosures at Gobekli-tepe are regularly between 6.5 and 10 feet in size and are thought to weigh between 5.5 and 16.5 tons apiece {five and fifteen metric tonnes}. Even more of an enigma is that sitting in a quarry a quarter of a mile away from the occupational mound is an unfinished T-shaped monolith..." [Extract from the book 'Gobekli Tepe' by A. Collins]. Try ''unfinished'' as a means...?

Recall what the 'Quarry' represents - if only in the context of this subject.

A working example: {i.e.,something hinted at}: "This certainly had its consequences in the 12th and 13th centuries, when the church and the cathedral builders, began to integrate into their work the thrilling new symbols, the esoteric reworkings of the ancient astrological quarries of astrology, which had been reintroduced to Europe by way of translations of the Arabic lore. In some cases the forms were more Arabian than they were classical." ['The Secret Zodiac'].

'Floods' / 'Quarries' - as a means...?

Hence: "I note in passing that the Book of Enoch has always been of great importance to the Freemasons. Indeed, certain Masonic rituals - in curious resonance with Islamic traditions - identify Enoch with the ancient Egyptian wisdom god Thoth...We are told that Enoch was the inventor of writing, that he taught men the art of building and that before the flood, he feared that the 'real secrets would be lost'. To prevent this he concealed the Grand Secret, engraved on a white oriental porphyry stone, in the bowels of the earth..." [Page 339. 'The Magicians of the Gods'].

''White quartz pebbles''? Try Part 3.

A working example: "Traditions state that there was once a time when 'great magicians' used this stone to focus there 'mana' power - to make the Moai - the famous megalithic statues on Easter Island - 'walk from the quarry to the places where they were set up'..." ['The Magicians of the Gods'].

''He who walked with god'' ?

Question. ''The place where they were set up'' = foundations. What were they composed of?

REFRESHER:{as one example only}: "There is a mosque whose foundation was laid from the first day on piety; it is more worthy of thy standing forth therein." [i.e., in relation to ''The original mosque of piety built by the Muhammad himself]..."Which then is best? - he that layeth his foundation on piety to God and his good pleasure? - or he that layeth his foundation on an undermined sand cliff ready to crumble to pieces?" [Quran 9:108/109].

'Topknot' made from volcanic rock {scoria}- from the top of a quarried 'mountain'. Question. Beginner or Adept? - while recalling that scoria sinks in water. Try ''knot'' . All as a means...?

As ONE example: "The term porphyry is from Ancient Greek and means "purple". Purple was the color of royalty, and the "imperial porphyry" was a deep purple igneous rock with large crystals of plagioclase. Some authors claimed the rock was the hardest known in antiquity. "Imperial" grade porphyry was thus prized for monuments and building projects in Imperial Rome and later....Subsequently, the name was given to any igneous rocks with large crystals. The adjective porphyritic now refers to a certain texture of igneous rock regardless of its chemical and mineralogical composition. Its chief characteristic is a large difference in size between the tiny matrix crystals and the much larger phenocrysts. Porphyries may be aphanites or phanerites, that is, the groundmass may have invisibly small crystals as in basalt, or crystals easily distinguishable with the eye {'naked'?}, as in granite. Most types of igneous rocks display some degree of porphyritic texture." ['Wiki'].

"...One way is, as we have tried to indicate in this book, by the equilibration of the elements within, and the cultivation of the civilizing influence of the Eternal Feminine Principle at its many levels, from heights of heaven to depths of earth, with the mediation of human love between." [Extract from the book by G. Knight].

''Mediation'' by way of 'morals' - represented {two examples} with ''99 names of Allah'' and/or the word ''grace'' - which leads to a balance within. All with A-C in mind. On a day to day basis. Representation of.

Fact or fiction. A possibility or not?

N.B. Unfinished monolith also found {apart} on the Orkney Islands. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

Chapter 'thirteen' significant, within the book as a whole, as it is within the subject as a whole. Using the Indian 'religion' as that first base on which to build his 'information' on? - with the reader in mind, [J. Black book]. Recall what that start point is. Mentioned elsewhere.

Other authors do the same, using the 'numbers' of each chapter, and the information within each, to accord, with number symbolism. Try and spot some, i.e.,Enoch in relation to the number 'seven' as mentioned in chapter seven of the 'Secret History of the World' by J. Black. Together with....

".....On another count, Apollo was associated with the number seven. Hence the reason he was known as 'Seven leading,' and/or ''Seven born.'' He was born on the seventh day of the Greek month Bysios, the day on which his festivals were held. His Lyre has seven strings, each one associated with the seven planets as well as the Pythagorean ''music of the spheres'' and the seven vowels of the Greek alphabet. The same number also relates to Apollo's omphalos at Delphi, in relation to the seven directions......" [Chapter 4, 'Jesus Christ Sun of God......' Mentioned elsewhere]. Question. Why. What does it all represent?

From a different perspective, with something extra: "The number seven, or septenary, is the sacred number of all theogonies and all symbols, because it is composed of the triad and tetrad....Seven can be thought of as a combination of the triangle and cross - the alchemical symbol of Sulphur - the symbol of Self-Consciousness." Enlarged elsewhere.

"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: i.e.,a reunion of the ''whole?'' By way of ''correspondences?''

As an example...Hera in relation to 'hero' {wikipedia/hera} and/or Leto in relation to the Pole Star. 'Queen' relative to 'mistress' - top/down in relation to bottom/up - ALL as a means to an understanding something other than the obvious...

"Indeed the proper balance is clearly shown in the fact that Apollo is the twin brother of the moon goddess Artemis. They were both children of Leto, the ever mild and gracious granddaughter of Ouranos and Gaia, whose father had been the Titan Koios, whose name, Kerenyi records, means the sphere of the heavens, and who was also called Polos, referring to the celestial polar axis. Leto's mother was Phoibe, the goddess of the moon, whose name meant 'purifying one'. It is from her that Apollo was later sometimes to be called Phoebus Apollo." [Extract from the book by G. Knight].

Sun/moon. Solar/Lunar - as expressions of something - the understanding of which = a result {balance?}.

"In many traditions pertaining to magic, { understand what the word truly means, before those first impressions take hold. Try Part 4}... and/or the subtle energies of the human entity, seven power centers are taught {'kundalini' link. Explained elsewhere}, or 'activated' within the student. According to the standard theory of correspondences, these are microcosmically attuned {metaphorically speaking or should that be metaphysically speaking?} - to the energies of the Seven Planets. The Underworld or Hidden Tradition teaches a variant of the above which suggests that the Seven Planets are, in fact, reflections of seven primal archetypes..." [Part 2, of the book by R. Stewart.

As i said at the beginning he spoke first of three centers, then four, then of five, and afterwards of seven centers...He said that centers were divided into positive and negative parts..." ['In Search of the Miraculous']. Try ''centers'' - ALL as a means...?

A {practical?} example {the very first one?}: "Mercury, the planet closest to the sun, is visible to the naked eye at dawn or dusk for less than two hours , for only short periods during the year. As bright as a first magnitude star, the planet never rises far above the horizon and is easily obscured by low cloud or mist, making it difficult to find. Copernicus is reputed never to have seen it from his observatory in Frauenburg in Poland {hint, hint?}. Phoebus Apollo has been associated with light, and as Mercury in the morning skies {'evening' one represented with Hermes} he heralds dawn and the rising sun. Later mythology associates Apollo with the sun, but in Homer the god has, for a number of reasons, been linked to the planet Mercury when it is seen before the sun rises. In Book 10, during the night raid on the Trojan lines Apollo wakens the Thracian Hippocoon shortly before dawn, the time when Mercury can be seen. Apollo is another supporter of the Trojans and their allies, and as Mercury he champions them as the planet travels through the zodiac. With Mercury above Orion, perhaps in Taurus, Apollo is said by Homer to be aiding Hector in his clashes with..." ['Homer Secret Iliad'].

Question. Nothing more than a figment of the imagination?

dogs

Celtic {design?} symbol. From the Book of Kells. N.B. In the book 'The Secret of the Golden Flower' between pages 136 - 137 is a similar picture of three 'dogs' in a circular movement. With one exception. One has a collar : "I have made a choice of ten pictures from a variety of European mandalas...To illustrate the parallelism between Eastern philosophy and the unconscious mental processes in the West." [Jung]. Try ''collar''. AND/OR ''The ego {personal identity} is at the center of consciousness''.

"The chariot or car might be considered indeed a moving equivalent of the 'Throne of God'. It is drawn by a {unimaginable? i.e.,figuratively speaking} beast, described as a red and white griffin with golden wings arching so high that their extremities cannot be seen. As for the carriage, around one of its wheels, three maidens are dancing an intricate measure. One in red, as fire, one green as an emerald, and one white as new fallen snow. About the other wheel are four maidens clad in royal purple, their leader possessing a 'third' eye. Although common thought regards these figures as an allegory of the three Virtues and four Cardinal Virtues, there is a much deeper esoteric meaning. They represent the feminine expression of the seven rays which are the inner dynamics of the universe, which in the heavens are associated with the Pleiades. Following the {car?} and the seven dancing maidens are seven aged men {elder link?}...counterparts of the seven maidens, which in esoteric stellar symbolism equates them with the seven 'rishes' of the Great Bear. Instead of garlands of lilies about their heads as with the maidens, their brows are wreathed in red roses...The 'pointers' of the Great Bear are alluded to in esoteric astrology as major stars of direction. The one nearest to the Pole Star {Dubhe} is a focus of the expression of the will of the individual; the one further from the Pole Star {Merak} is a focus of a reservoir of the energy of Divine purpose, or the 'will of god'...Dubhe is the 'pointer' for mankind on the path of the 'involution' of consciousness {top/down?} - seeking expression in manifestation {'known' quantity?}. Merak comes into play in guiding the achieved human being {bottom/up?} - into discipleship under the 'planetary hierarchy'. And the pattern for this 'planetary hierarchy' is to be found in the great star of Isis, Sirius, the dog star, in Canis Major." [Extract from the book 'Rose Cross and the Goddess'. Mentioned elsewhere. Emphasis, this readers].

Analogy: "In Theology this 'pure consciousness' is Siva, and 'His' power {Sakti} who as - 'She' is in her formless self - is one with him. She is the great Devi, the mother of the universe who as the Life Force resides in mans body in its lowest center at the base of the 'spine' just as Siva is 'realized' in the highest brain center - the cerebrum or Sahasrara-Padma. Completed Yoga is the union of her and him....This is Laya or dissolution, the reverse of Srsti or involution of 'spirit' in mind and matter." [Page 27 'The Serpent Power' / J. Woodroffe].

N.B. ''Life force'' in relation to that 'universal BIT' ? A connectedness of something by way of the OBJECTIVE process {or would that be ''principle''?}.

How simple yet profound. Understand that {basic?} principle to decipher the CORE ESSENCE of all esoteric literature.

Refresher: "By ''Spirit'' we mean the Life-Power. A glance at your dictionary will show you that ''spirit'' is derived from the Latin Spiritus, whose root meaning is breath. Closely akin to the Latin noun are the Greek 'Pneuma', the Hebrew 'Ruach' and the Sanskrit 'Prana'. Each of these nouns signifies both ''breath'' and ''life''.....Philosophers have always attributed a 'mental quality' to this principle." [P. F. Case. Vol 1].

A working example {i.e.,from one perspective}: ''In the Ageless Wisdom there has always been the knowledge that the Life-Breath presents itself to human consciousness in a five-fold manner. The Great Breath {in the Hindu tradition} gives to Prakriti {the substance aspect of Being} five sorts of elementary extention. The first and most important of these is the Akasha Tattva..."

Something extra: "Saturn is really a combination of the three primary colours {i.e.,red/yellow/blue} - and has ''close affinities to Akasha''. The corresponding metal is 'lead'; the chakra, the Muladhara, the basic lows of the Yogis, identified with the sacred plexus. Here the fiery power of the Kundalini, the serpent force, is said to be coiled or latent, and that latency is an example of the limiting influence of Saturn. That influence is at work in the physical functions governed by the sacral plexus {i.e., thigh and leg related}. [Page 26/65 'Occult Fundamentals and Spiritual Unfoldment'. Vol 1].

Question. Weak or strong legs?

All as a means...?

Side note: "It is a large constellation {Auriga} stretching northward across the Milky Way - from one of its stars that mark one of the Bull's horns, to the feet of Camelopardalis - about 30 degrees in extent north and south and 40 degrees east and west {'three and four'?}. It is shown as a 'young' man with a whip in his right hand - but without a chariot - a goat being supported against the left 'shoulder' and the 'Kids' on the wrist. This, with some variations, has been the drawing from the earliest days, when, as now, it was important, chiefly from the beauty of Capella and its attendant stars so prominent in the N/W in the spring twilight, and in the N/E in early autumn. But the Hyginus of 1488 has a most absurd Driver in a ridiculously inadequate four-wheeled CAR, with the Goat and Kids in their usual position the 'reins' being held over four animals abreast - a YOKE of oxen, a horse and a zebra {?}..."

samos-flag-during-greek-war-of-independance

''Samos flag - during Greek war of independence.'' Follow the arrow shafts downward. The four 'directions' in human form? Triangular in shape. That same triangular form - represented on vases - ''That pointed the way to a new reemerging vision of Greek art." Question. 'Lozenge' shape?

Side note. Griffin heads found on 'cauldrons' on Heraion at Samos / Greece. AS speculated in the program narrated by A. Sooke. Define such keys as 'cauldron' and 'S/E' {in relation to the ''feminine'' aspect} - while recalling such names as Pythagoras {Samos born} in relation to those ''geometric patterns'' also found within Greeks artwork - in order to define subject material beyond ''...folk tales being canonised." {Quote by same.

Position of the valley of Kings. Question. Where would the valley of Queens be positioned; and why?

Example of?..."Speculating on the word Dub: Dabu, was the Babylonian name for the Great Bear constellation. A bear is in Hebrew Dobh, the name for this constellation; also Phoenician Dub, and Arabian Al Dubb. The English verb 'to dub' means to give another name or nickname, or give a new title or description. Because of the taboo of calling a 'bear a bear'; bears were dubbed with various descriptive titles in European languages." [www.Constellationsofwords.com/stars/dubhe]. Try ''nickname'' throughout.

'Bugbear' ?

Question. 'Bear' a link to Arthur . Arthur a link to 'king'. King in relation to 'Kingship'. In some cultures {i.e.,as one example - Hebrew} - the name of 'god' has not to be spoken. A taboo? Or something else ,i.e.,non specific? - therefore 'aspects' of something? Try ''YHWH'' and/or ''YHVH''.

"...the Russian astronomer and historian of science Alexander Gurshtein, traces the first recognition and naming of constellations - notably, the Great Bear - to 20,000 BC..." ['Magicians of the Gods'].

Question. Why the 'Bear'? Hibernation? Therefore a link to 'sleep'? And/or Male or female?

Question 2. When do they hibernate? Any relevance to the word ''circumpolar''?

May-pole?

"Other traditions should be mentioned that show evidence of the connection between ancient sea, feminine, stellar and underworld powers. Leto had a sister Asteria, which means Star goddess, and who was the mother of another moon goddess, Hecate, closely related to Artemis. After Zeus had fathered Apollo and Artemis on Leto he had 'pursued' her sister Asteria, who escaped him by turning into a stone and falling into the depths of the sea - { recall Cronus who swallowed a stone. One relates more to the shadow aspect than the anima - as a means to an understanding}. She emerged as an island on which Leto could give birth to her twins. This is usually identified as Delos which also had the tradition of having once been a floating island, an ocean wanderer hidden from the eyes of men, {shadow aspect?}. At the birth of Apollo and Artemis it became firmly anchored to the sea bed with four great pillars, and is described evocatively, as quoted by Kerenyi, as a 'widely visible star of the dark earth' {'Morning' star?}. There is a certain alchemical element about the descriptions of rejoicing when Leto eventually gave birth on Delos. All the 'gods' rejoiced, the former rocky and barren outcrop became fruitful, singing swans circled the island becoming mute after the seventh time, nymphs {Pleiades?} sang a sacred birthing song, the foundations of the island turned to gold, as did the waters of its river and circular lake, and also the leaves of its olive trees. All of this brings us back to the traditions surrounding Perseus..." Enlarged/continued elsewhere. Part 3. [Extract from the book by G. Knight. All emphasis, this readers].

Continued: "But are these two worlds Pan spoke of to remain forever separate? I have seen this lake, in my minds eye, I think. I found myself on May Hill, and it was an island. All this was sea - or lake. And a friend said the other day that she could never take her shoes off in this house for fear of getting her feet wet! But not in this world, if you know what I mean. She 'felt' the lake without knowing about it." ['The Sword in the Sun'].

"In ancient mythology many times Zeus would take the form of a swan..." Quote by Phineas Kastle. ['Pawn Stars'/ History Channel. Series 18. Episode 1].

..."The cause of the later connection of Apollo with Delphi is somewhat confused in the myths. We are dealing with fragments of a very ancient oral tradition that are like pieces of patchwork that have to be assembled into a coherent fabric...Much would seem to depend on the 'changing' character of Apollo - or rather how mankind related to his archetype - for all such 'relationships' are in the process of change with the gradual evolution of consciousness. Solar 'hero's' in particular tend to transform in this way." Same book.

And/or Hera/Zeus in relation to 'elder'? Leto/Apollo in relation to 'younger'? OR would that be vice versa? Therefore link to Manifested/UNmanifested? As a means to...?

Side note: The film 'The life of Pi' {mentioned elsewhere}. Plenty of 'keys' - one of which = ''floating island''. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

Mayan equivalent? "The ceremonial precinct of Tiahuanaco was surrounded by a moat, to give the impression of a site - as a floating island. The central feature of the core precinct is a man made mountain of seven levels - rising some fifty feet high called Akapana. The adjacent Semi-subterranean Temple and the Kalasaya lie along an east-west axis - the suns rising and setting horizons on the equinoxes. A sunken courtyard was found atop the Akapana temple. Its purpose was to catch rainwater, and a system of drains..." ['Galactic Alignment'].

Water in relation to ?

Step pyramid? Try ''moat''.

"I wanted to use water because the film is talking about faith, and it contains fish, life and every emotion for Pi. And air is God, heaven and something spiritual and death. That's how I see it. I believe the thing we call faith or God is our emotional attachment to the unknown. I'm Chinese; I believe in the Taoist Buddha. We don't talk about a deity, which is very much like this book; we're not talking about religion but God in the abstract sense, something to overpower you."
