Esotericism Part 2 Sec 03




'Up Yours'? or something deeper. 'Left' arm for a 'snake'?

The Cerne Abbas Giant, mentioned in the same book, [J. Michell]..the stone age equivalent of the same. Proof...Cerne, a direct link to 'Cernunnos' and Abbas, a link to the word abbey and abba. Both an indirect link to the word 'father', i.e.,higher of the lower. Question. If the 'giant' represents 'lower', what within landscape symbolism would represent 'higher'? Think about it, in relation to a 'development,' as well as 'flat tops'[keys]. Explained within.

As well as Mr Lethbridges research on Gog Magog, in his book of the same, i.e.,pagan equivalent of higher/lower. In 'its' most primitive form. [ Explained elsewhere]. Or Mr Z. Sitchin's book, 'The 12th Planet'. Understanding this subject explains why the word 'Nefilim'[Giant] and Mr Sitchins interpretation of the same...'those who were cast down', are; to all intent and purpose; one of the same thing. I.e., a link to 'the fall' symbolism, and that link to 'lower within the higher'.

Side note: "The small island of Salamis, home of the Great Aias, physically the largest warrior at Troy, was linked to Argo Navis, the largest constellation in Homer's day, but since divided into three." AND/OR " only the second strongest warrior - represented with Canopus - the 2nd brightest star in the heavens. The brightest star {Sirius} allocated to Achilles the ''warrior without equal''. ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

"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." [From the book by W. Berg].

Question. Fantasists?

"Who were the Gog and Magog people? This question is connected with the question, who was Dhu al Qarnayn? ''Lord of two Qarns'' [horns]. Or the ''Lord of two epochs'' [i.e.,the tail end of something - and the beginning of something else]. Answer found elsewhere, as well as Sura eighteen of the Quran translated by Yusuf Ali.

"The number 18, which appears in pre-Columbian measures of time, has a certain importance in the West. This may be explained by the connection to the circular number 360, or possibly with an astral number, since eclipses of the sun and moon recur in the same sequence after 18 years. It is not surprising that 18 plays a role in the Cabala, for its numerical number corresponds to the word for living [hay], as well as the name David...In medieval Christianity exegesis it is sometimes explained as the sum of 10 + 8, which is taken to mean the fulfillment of the Law through grace. This interpretation was derived from Luke 13:11, where it is told that Jesus healed a woman who had a spirit of infirmity for 18 years, [those numbers 13:11 also imply something. This readers input]. Elsewhere, the number was taken as the product of 3x6, which represents faith in the Trinity coordinated with pious works. Islamic tradition knows the 18 consonants of the introductory formula Bismi'llahi'r - rahmani'r - rahim [''in the name of god the all merciful, the all compassionate'']. Perhaps the common idea that there are 18000 worlds is derived from the number of the blessed formula by which every act has to begin. For the Mevlevi, the Sufi order of the Whirling Dervishers, 18 is one of the central numbers..." [Extract from 'The Mystery of Numbers'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"One can escape the prison of the eclipse, only by turning to the moral consciousness of the transcendent self..." [Extract from the book by Tomberg]. Try Part 4.

Moon and Sun. As a means...?

chacoSide note: And/or {something to ponder on}: "And it was not only during the darkest time of the year - when the nights are at their longest - but it was also under the sign of 'virgin intelligence' eclipsed by human terrestrial intelligence that the nativity of Jesus Christ took place...Do not be scandalised, dear Unknown friend, by the fact that you find yourself confronted with the rosary prayer in the Hermetic meditation on the 18th Arcanum of the Tarot - the Arcanum which teaches how to surmount 'eclipsed lunar intelligence'. Esotericism is not a collection of extraordinary and unknown things, but rather it is above all a less ordinary and less known way of seeing ordinary and known things - of seeing their profundity." [Pages 499/516 'Letter 18, The Moon, within the book 'Meditations on the Tarot'].

Question. ''Surmount'' in relation to an 'overhang'?

N.B. ''Prayer'' is only one method of 'overcoming' that obstacle. A Study program does the same. If ONLY in determining a mind-set.

"When you pray and study, let {my words} not forsake you''. [Paraphrase of Proverbs 4:21. Taken from the book 'Meditation and Kabbalah].

Side note: Speculation about what that 'star' could have been - around the time of the 'birth' of Christ: ''There was a lunar eclipse one month before 'Passover' in the year Herod died {4BC}." {'Sky at Night' / Xmas edition}.

And/or ''Conjunction {triple} of Jupiter and Saturn {7BC} - 23rd September."

"Saturn is the furthest planet that can be seen with the naked eye."

Continued: A {working} example: {i.e., something hinted at}: "Strange to tell, but I did not enter the cave; in fact, I never chose to enter it at all during those three days. Why is still uncertain...But whatever the case, I decided to set up camp on the far western edge of the cave mouth - an ideal location where the path broadened out, and was protected somewhat by an overhang. The old apple tree was long gone, yet faint ghost-like traces of it could be seen on the ground where a stump once was." ['Lost Books of Merlin' / D. Monroe].

Try ''Seahenge'' and/or ''overhang'' {i.e., what 'position' is generally associated with it}?

Continued: Come back to it later, has one does in any subject. Only put in to show the extent and [depth?] of this subjects material base - if only for this reader - over countless generations; and multiple authors, i.e.,as one example: "Morris dance - {Wikipedia} - The name is first recorded in the mid-15th century as Morisk dance, moreys daunce, morisse daunce, i.e. "Moorish dance". Enlarged elsewhere.

"Today's travellers passing through Winster in Derbyshire may enjoy the unexpected sight of a man dressed as a woman from a centuries old tradition. So old, in fact, that nobody knows where it came from - Morris dancing..." [Britain's Ancient Tracks'. Narrated by T. Robinson. Series 2. Episode 3]. Other clues elsewhere.

''Who guides the keel that plows the deep''. Enlarged elsewhere.


'Plough Monday' dance by the Royal Liberty Morris. Try ''plough''.

Side note {from a different perspective?}: "For shamans, this state of balance between the feminine and masculine, magnetic and dynamic, yin and yang aspects of themselves is of supreme importance. Many shamans have believed that to be a truly excellent shaman, one must bring together these polarities in harmony and balance. Historically, there are many accounts of shamans cross-dressing...There are accounts of this ritualized merging into the opposite sex among Native American shamans from the Arapaho, Cheyenne, and Ute tribes as well as etc, etc,...This is not caused by a cross-cultural disorder, but is done purposely as a practice to attain internal unity that brings together the male and female aspects within themselves into a sacred marriage..." ['Secrets of Shamanism'].

Try ''Marriage'' / ''Dynamic/static'' ''feast of fools'' to see 'it' in its broader {universal?} context.

And/or: Static in relation to: S/W / ''Under {'in'?} the Horizon'' / and Nadir. And Dynamic in relation to: S/E / ''Above {'of'?} the Horizon'' / and Zenith. Enlarged throughout.

A working example: "God is dynamic. Evolution is a subjective, human term for our experience of his dynamism." [Page 141 'The Sword in the Sun'].

From a different perspective: "This much is the basic pattern, which can be enacted by one individual, or by a group. The physical movement is essential, and the transformative power does not awaken fully without it. It may be done as a dance to drumming and music, or as a simple processional movement. Traditionally it is accompanied by spinning and leaping. Many ritual dances from folk tradition, particularly those preserving death and resurrection symbolism, use this type of pattern....Celtic saints for example, were renowned for leaping…." 'The Way of Merlin' / R. Stewart. Italics, this readers].

Question. A leap of faith or that intuitive one?

ALL as a means....?

As is:'' A drum of hareskin…'' {Page 193 - Douglas Monroe}.


A leap of something - all in unison?

And/or: "Moriscos (Spanish: [mo'?iskos], Catalan: [mu'?iskus], [mo'?iskos]; Portuguese: mouriscos [mo(w)'?i?ku?], [mo(w)'?iskus]; meaning "Moorish") were former Muslims who converted or were coerced into converting to Christianity, after Spain finally outlawed the open practice of Islam by its sizeable Muslim population (termed Mudejar) in the early 16th century...The Inquisition was aimed mostly at Jews and Muslims who had overtly converted to Christianity but were thought to be practicing their faiths secretly. They were respectively called marranos and moriscos. However, in 1567 King Philip II directed Moriscos to give up their Arabic names and traditional dress, and prohibited the use of Arabic. In reaction, there was a Morisco uprising in the Alpujarras from 1568 to 1571. In the years from 1609 to 1614, the government expelled Moriscos. The historian Henri Lapeyre estimated that this affected 300,000 out of an estimated total of 8 million inhabitants.

According to L. P. Harvey, the two different meanings of the word 'morisco' have resulted in mistakes where modern scholars misread historical text containing morisco in the older meaning as having the newer meaning. In the early years after the forced conversions, the Christians used the terms ''New Christians'', ''New converts'', or ''New Christians , converted from being Moors''. [Wiki].

The Western {Christian?} equivalent of its Eastern counterpart {Dervishers?}. Try this page and/or Part 5 to 'see' if you agree or disagree.

Proving the validity of {say} a study exercise as opposed to that first impressionable one.

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

And/or {as a means...}: "One can escape the prison of the eclipse, only by turning to the moral consciousness of the transcendent self..." [Extract from the book by Tomberg]. Try Part 4.

''Zero'' ? As a means to begin something. The start of something.

A {working?} example: "Venus is called the planet of 'love', by those who do not know about the mysteries,'' he had said. This starting us out on a long journey in search of arcane images. We knew that the esoteric Venus was the planet of inner light, and that love itself is an expression of this phosphorescence. His concluding sentence on that day had puzzled us however: "After an eclipse of Venus, the soul must become a wanderer for a while. 'Venus' is the inner flame; she finds it hard to bear the darkness of eclipse.'' We had not understood then, but now we did, for we were living through such an eclipse..." ['The Zelator'].

A side step: N.B. 13th King of Copan {'Holy' Kings} - whose name = 'Eighteen Are The Images of the God' - nicknamed 18 Rabbit. Hare link? Try ''13'' to add or detract from - while recalling what ''18'' represents.

"Analogy of same. Different time; different author..."Formally it may be said, my whole being was possessed by egoism. All my manifestations and experiences flowed from my vanity......and from then on there gradually arose in me that ''something'' which has brought the whole of me to the unshakable conviction that, apart from the vanities of life, there exists a ''something else'' which must be the aim and ideal of every more or less thinking man, and that it is only this something else which may make a man really happy and give him real values, instead of the illusory ''goods'' with which in ordinary life he is always and in everything full." [Chapter 10 'Meetings with Remarkable Men'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Recall the same word {i.e., "something" - in the 'Help' section}.

Eastern equivalent..."The ego principle = ahamkara = ''i do,'' is the root cause of dualism [i.e.,higher/lower etc.,] or the seeming separation between man and his 'creator'. Ahamkara brings human beings under the sway of 'maya' {cosmic delusion'}, by which the subject 'ego' falsely appears as object..." Hence the link to objectivity - benefit of. Especially when its related to that ''internal'' stuff. See it? i.e.,.

"To remove the veil of maya is to uncover the secret of creation." [Both extracts from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi' ].

"...the anima appears in 'her' proper positive role - that is, as a mediator between the ego and the self." ['Man and his Symbols' / C. Jung].

Side note: The TITLE ''Pharaoh'' came into use at the inauguration of Hatshepsut {'Great House'}.

"Ken, crystals are little more than rocks. I began to explain how crystals are actually alive and conscious something that i realize is outside of normal consciousness but not outside of science. I showed him the periodic table of the carbon, the 6th element, is associated with all organic chemistry and everything that is normally considered to be alive. But directly below it, one octave below, is the element of silicon, the primary element of quartz Acrystal and 80% of the crust of the earth." ['Serpent of Light' - mentioned elsewhere]. Anything ?

"A monk who had meditated long in search of Illumination finally received a great flash of insight. Rushing to his 'roshi' {Zen master}, the monk cried out, 'I have it! I have it! That rock there is inside my head.' "You must have a big head," the master replied, ''to hold a rock that size." [Extract from the book 'The Cosmic Trigger'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"Imagination is a monastery and i am its monk." {John Keats, from a letter to Percy Bysshe Shelly, August 1820}. Try ''house'' and/or ''temple,'' for alternative 'viewpoints'.

"The chief training schools of western Druids, was on Anglesey, also called Mona or Muineadh in proto-Welsh, which means Island of Teaching.....The word has roots to the Straight of Menai as well as the word Monastery - a dwelling place for priests. [Douglas Monroe].

Try ''cattle'' - to take subject material further. Therefore the understanding of a mindset.


'A leap into the VOID? ' Yves Klein - who had a fascination with the colour blue. Synchronistic? Question. Aqueous Blue?

That final link to a 'potential'...a potential, that once made aware of, could lead to a 'reversal of fortune',i.e.,'higher within the lower'. Andrew Sinclair does the same, but now in relation to the 'Grail' story...' The Discovery of the Grail. ' The word 'giant' mentioned in relation to the British isles. Find it it you want to understand your own county's symbolism in relation to the whole. Woodhenge in relation to Stonehenge,[macro]. Sarsen stones in relation to those 'blue' ones, [micro].

And/or..."Long time ago, there was a race of giants that lived in Orkney; great bad tempered, blustering creatures. But they did like to come together and dance {'Pan' link}. One night they 'gathered together' on the plain between two bodies of water {'loch'} and danced in a circle. They danced and danced to the music of the fiddler. They enjoyed themselves so much they lost the 'track of time' - and before they knew what happened - the 'sun rose' and all turned to stone. There they remain to this day as the Ring of Brodgar." [ Tom Muir/ Orkney museum from the program 'Sacred Wonders of Britain' {episode 1} narrated by Neil Oliver. Emphasis, this readers].


Many found N/E.

Orkney isles = N/E. The start of something. 'Giant' in relation to gross or external or 'lower' {'transcendent third' link?}. The narrator believes a spiritual 'teacher' of some description was responsible, {similar to Schonfields hypothesis. Enlarged elsewhere} i.e.,he asks questions such as..."Do you get any sense of what religion or science or magic was practiced here...OR "Is this the origin of a new religion or maybe a different way of understanding the world; its amazing that something that might have kicked off throughout Britain may have started in these Islands {Orkney}...Could an individual be behind it - a messianic figure or an inspirational spiritual leader here 4-5000 years ago..." [Same program]. Other examples enlarged elsewhere.

That "...different way of understanding.'' - from the dawn of human kind {i.e.,oral tradition?} up to the present - as defined by a sole subject - not a sole individual. A leader was no doubt present. But a 'leader' does not automatically imply a 'teacher'. Yes or no?

N. B. "Adomnan, the biography of St. Columbus says that the Picts were called Orcadians."

Try ''Pict'' to see it from their perspective.

A {present day?} example: "The results of the work of a man who takes on himself the role of teacher do not depend on whether or not he knows exactly the origin of what he teaches, but very much depends on whether or not his ideas come in actual fact from the esoteric center and whether he himself understands and can distinguish esoteric ideas, that is, ideas of objective knowledge, from subjective, scientific, and philosophical ideas." ['In Search of the Miraculous'].


The same question asked to the MANY bodies found in bogs. Enlarged throughout. Try ''marshes/fenland'' to begin with.

REfresher: "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."

Brought up to date...That ''oral tradition'' in relation to: "But when we go back further in history, before Christianity, it becomes even more difficult to decipher what people believed in. The belief of our pre-historic ancestors are mysteries. They didn't write anything down - so we are left to turn to archeology for some clues..." [Alice Roberts 'Digging For Britain'].

''didn't write anything down'' in relation to {as ONE example only: "Josephus, born at Jerusalem in 37AD., was the greatest historian of the Jews in that period. Philo was the greatest Jewish philosopher of that period. Both men had personal knowledge of the ancient Essenes. Both scholars make clear that the Essenian roots are incredibly ancient. Josephus declares that the Essenes have existed ''from time immorial'' and ''countless generations''. Philo agrees, calling the Essenes ''the most ancient of all the initiates'' with a ''teaching perpetuated through an immense space of ages''. Continued elsewhere.

Question. A ''teaching'' of what?

Try Dead Sea Scrolls as ONE example.

'The Prophetic Vision of Merlin: Prediction, Psychic Transformation, and the Foundation of the Grail Legends in an Ancient Set of 'Visionary' Verses' / R. Stewart.


'Herne the Hunter'. Question. To many lagers? OR Spirit or soul - as a means? Try ''stag'' and/or ''deer'' - while recalling what ''forests'' represent.

A {working?} example - in the present time: Dry stone 'tower' {Broch} decommissioned {filled in} - that resembles a mound of stones {primordial?}. Discovered South Ronaldsay. Lower jaw of a human {'teeth'} together with whale bone {'cup' shaped}, and surrounding it Red deer antlers were eventually discovered. {'Digging for Britain']. All enlarged elsewhere.

Question. Male or female antlers?

Try ''map''.

Side note: "Cave art can speak to us like nothing else...Cave art in Britain looked for since cave art found in France, but believed it most unlikely because of conditions in Britain in the same epoch...Those ideas turned on their head when discoveries were made in the cave at Creswell Crags...Pre last ice age - 13000 years ago... the scratchings of the image of a deer...This is the oldest rock art to be found anywhere on these islands...Here we have art that is something a little bit different, and it does give a real connection back to the people that created it - but I rather like the mystery that we will never really know what it means." ['Digging For Britain' / Series 1 - Episode 2].

And/or: "This sculpture known as the Swimming Reindeer, was created at least 13,000 years ago...Its carved from the tip of a mammoth tusk and shows a male and female reindeer with their heads raised and legs extended. The depiction is remarkable in its naturalism...The fragility of the connection between the two halves shows that it was not a practical object but rather a masterpiece of figurative art. Its significance to the people who created it remains a mystery to archaeologists. For me, it is one of the many things which tell me the Reindeer Goddess was important to humankind from back into very ancient times. " ['Elen of the Ways: Shaman Pathways' / E. Sentier].

Don't forget those first impressions. Try ''horn'' and/or ''elephant''.

Question. 'Swimming' in a sea or river?

Question 2. Recall the 'head' of Gemini relative to the extended 'paws' of the Sphinx.

"In the woman's meditation the Self appeared as a deer, which said to the ego: ''I am your child and your mother. They call me the 'connecting animal' because i connect people, animals, and even stones with one another if i enter them. I am your fate or the 'objective I.' When i appear, I redeem you from the meaningless hazards of life. The 'fire' burning inside me burns in the whole of nature. If a man loses it, he becomes egocentric, lonely, disorientated and weak." ['Man and his Symbols'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Think about all the above relative to that ''bit''.


As seen from a different perspective {can you 'see' it?}: "Who among you has transformed darkness {i.e.,something unknown} - into light {i.e.,a known 'quality'} bitterness into sweetness....Who among you waited each day for the light that shines when the 'King' visits the Doe? For it is at this time that the Glory is increased and he is called 'King' over all the kings of the world...." ['Meditation and Kabbalah' / A. Kaplan].

bbbb-2Side note: Mark Tully explores bitterness in all its forms - as a taste and emotion: 'With bitter herbs they shall eat': At Passover bitter herbs are eaten as a reminder of the bitterness of slavery. In the present day represented with horse - radish. Anything? [Radio 4. 18/11/18].

''In the Old Testament - in the Book of Ruth - Naomi; Ruth's mother in law, leaves Moab where she has lost her husband and two sons. She and Ruth goes to her home town Bethlehem where the barley harvest {'sweet'?} was beginning.. There she tells the people who greet her to call her Mara - which means bitter. Then Ruth marries Boaz owner of the barley and they have a son who becomes the grandson of King David. The women including Naomi celebrate the birth of this 'son' - for Naomi the bitterness has now changed into sweetness." Same radio program.

Higher/lower? Try ''bitter/sweeter'' as a means...?

Continued: "Jewish Rabbis asserted that the tribe of Naphtali adopted this sign as their banner emblem: ''Naphtali as if a hind let loose'' - as if Capricorn were a deer, or antelope {desert one?} - others ascribed it to Benjamin, or to Reuben; but Aquarius more fitly represented the latter." [Notes on Capricorn within the book 'Star Names and Their Meaning']. Try ''pennant'' / ''banner'' and/or ''Gemini'' . As a means...?

Side note 2: "The blessed name, YHVH, which is the mystery of the Middle Pillar, is called Atah {THOU}. This is the mystery of all of gods banners and appellations. He clothes Himself in them all, and prides Himself in them, this being the mystery of the word Atah. This mystery teaches that everything in the universe and every Merkava {'chariot'} was created through permutations of..." [Page 135 'Meditation and Kabbalah' / A. Kaplan].

Question. Atah in relation to the Aten? ''Seat of First Occasion''?

Understanding the above in relation to the word ''middle'' gives possible clues to a final resting place. That final 64th one.


''Antelope are more deer like than other bovids." {wiki}. Question. Male or female?

Continued: South American {Indian} equivalent?..."So we were on the road again. Ahead of us lay the long, mesmerizing ride to Page, Arizona, to the upper reaches of the Grand Canyon. Here we would create our final ceremony. But first, we would spend the afternoon and early evening at a unique natural cathedral known as Antelope Canyon, where we would meet with Davlin, a Navajo shaman whose fierce protectiveness of his people would provide us with our last test of faith...Antelope Canyon is so sacred to the Navajo that visitors are allowed in only when accompanied by Native guides...Back outside as we were getting ready to be driven back, Davlin pointed up at a snake shape on the wall of Antelope Canyon's entrance and began to tell us about it. He illustrated each detail of what he was saying by pointing up at the snake's shape, moving his finger along the forty-foot formation.'' ['Serpent of Light Beyond 2012'].

And/or: {something hinted at}: "Draco, the Dragon can be associated with the mythology it was the snake snatched by Minerva from the 'giants' and whirled {'spiral'?} to the sky...It was the tempter of Eve in the Garden....But the Dragon would seem to be the most probable as the ancient possessor of the pole star {'Hippo'. Egyptian equivalent?} - then, as ours now is, the most important in the heavens; while this translation of the original is specially appropriate for such a winding figure....Renan saw a connection to the Book of Job to the ''crooked serpent'' {Moses 'crooked' staff?}....The Reverend Doctor Albert Barnes renders it ''fleeing''....but the revised version has ''swift'' - a very unsuitable epithet for Draco's slow motion, yet applicable enough to the more southern Hydra....Referring to Draco's change of position in respect of the pole from the effect of precession....the downfall of the dragon whose ''tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven''....and the conclusion of that verse {i.e.,Revelation 12:4} ''did cast them to the earth'' - would show a possible reference to meteor's. ['Star Names and Their Meaning' under Draco].

Recall the ancient Lion {Asad} that covered a ''third of the heavens''.

Something extra: {something hinted at}: "YELLOW: Leo, the Lion. Leo is ruled by the Sun, whose colour is orange. Here is a seeming contradiction like that between the colour of Gemini and its ruler, Mercury. On the tree of life, too, the sphere of the sun is yellow. The thing suggested is an interchange between the mercurial and solar potencies, and this reminds us that Mercury is the ''metal'' with which alchemists work to produce the ''Stone'' which changes Saturn {lead} into gold {Sol, the sun}. [ Page 66 of the book by P. F. Case. Vol 1. From the chapter entitled: 'Correlation of Sound and Colour'].

Leo/Vigo? All as a means....?

Yellow Sea / Red Sea ? What about 'Blue'? {'Green' language?}.


Guarding 'apple' trees?

From a different perspective: Something {purposely} hinted at: "Pliny the Elder, writing in the 1st century A.D. is perhaps the most notorious non-eye-witness of them all, relying on the testimony of others to speak of animals that even the original observers did not linger to describe too carefully. What Pliny and others have observed {or not actually witnessed} is similar to the half truths and observations that we make about all animals around us in the natural world. One of the reasons we believe animals behave in certain ways is due to our lack of patience or to the rationalist or fabulist's fall back which conveniently explains away why a thing is so. The real observer of the natural {key} world soon learns a better truth, although may still not always understand what is being witnessed. It is only recently, for example, that scientists have learned that whale-song is not just about communicating with other whales but about the practical ultrasonic mapping of coastlines and sea beds {and 'mounts'} by which whales steer their course. Yet, within our own lifetime, we have heard the most fabulist explanations of whale-song which have inspired composers...The sources of this book are varied. Where possible we have gone to the first tellers of tales as much as to the most recent accounts. Many of these early reporters lived at a time when only the known world was mapped. The 'uncharted' regions, as in many mariners maps of the sea, had {in one of its 'corners'} the image of the whale to indicate the presence of 'sea monsters'..." [From the book by J. and C. Mathews].

All those 'natural' qualities used as a means...?


'Back' of the head?

As an example: "Who am I? Where am I going? What is it all for? If these questions have been running through your head {'back of'?} lately, you have begun the ultimate quest, which in one form, is to answer questions such as these, and in another is perhaps the attainment of the Holy Grail. In many countries people ask these questions and instead of turning within - where the ultimate answers must surely lie - they turn to experts, psychoanalysts, and psychologists in the hope that other people can explain what they, the individuals , are about...It might seem daunting to have to look at and map your own feelings, but you can spend a few minutes each day thinking about how you feel....From your own secret journal you will begin to discover patterns of your own emerging. This is the beginning of the 'magical' journey of inner exploration. You are mapping an uncharted 'country' which you alone can visit totally. You can become your own expert and gradually, when you have learned to change your awareness from the immediate world to that inner one, you will be able to make long expeditions to gain new knowledge." ['Magic for the Aquarian Age' / Marian Green].

Question. How long is a 'whales' expedition and what 'patterns' do they make. Silent ones?

Remember - to understand a MINDSET. To define {internally?} what they all imply by that ''divine bit'' unlocks subject material REGARDLESS in what form it takes; whether 'ritual' {as in the above book}; or prayer ; or as a study program.

And/or: if only in the micro sense of the word: {this readers opinion only?}: "The diamonds can be found even in the mud - the waters wash them clean. Nuggets of gold {philosophy} are not for you. Seek diamonds, sparkling truth, the clarity, perfection of the Word. The whirlpools of life carry you to where the diamonds are. Resonate to the perfection of the crystals. Arduous seeking is not necessary. The path is already mapped out. You have only to follow the clues." ['Truth Vibrations' by D. Icke. Includes parenthesis]. Try ''crystalliz{s}ation'' and/or ''nuggets''.

N.B. Before those first impressions reach for the ''off' switch {depending whether one is a fan of Mr Icke or not} get the overview of what such individuals do know, and do not know - relative to subject material. The above an example of information 'received' in one of his {clairvoyant?} episodes.

''Every dog has his day''. Try ''Herod'' for analogy on the same theme.

And/or: Saturn, as you know, is the binding, crystallizing vibration. The pair of opposites assigned to it is Dominion and Slavery, because our expression of this 'vibration' {i.e., in the ''energy'' sense of the word, i.e., recall J. Campbell's quote}, either frees or limits us, according to the point of view that we take. Limitation is the necessary condition of manifestation, because the only conceivable way that the Life-Power can enter into existence at all is by concentrating its activity at some definite point in space {'coal sacks'?} - and that concentration is a self limitation. Boundaries of some kind are required for definiteness. Liberty does not consist in the removal of all conditions, in the absence of all restrictions. It is found in the understanding of the principle of limitation, and the application of that principle to the production of specific results. " [Page 51 of the book by P. F. Case. Vol 1].

Continued: Those same 'sea monsters' that such characters as Apollo have to 'wrestle' with before an understanding {development?} takes place. Represented as a 'new location'. Enlarged elsewhere.



And/or: "The Greeks equated Set with the image of Typhon, The Destroyer. All of the Typhonic figures - the spotted leopard, oryx, ass, pig, boar, serpent, crocodile, turtle and in a feminine aspect {claws?}, Selqit {selket?} the scorpion - have a relationship to Set in his role as 'devourer' or divider. He represents the purely physical unindividuated rhythm of nature. These images all portray the unconscious, repetitious motion of material life, which swallows, absorbs, and elevates physical survival above all else. Thus Set, fulfills the 'Principle of Fixation', which, when allowed to proliferate in the physical world, functions as corruption." ['Sacred Tradition of Ancient Egypt']. Higher/lower?

And/or: "Interestingly, Libra was not included in the earliest zodiacs. It is believed to have been known to the Egyptians as Zugon - the 'Yoke'{enlarged elsewhere} - where only the beam of the scales was represented, typifying the Nilometer, the instrument by which the inundations of the Nile were measured. According to some Arkadian writings, the name of the 7th month was Tulku meaning Holy Altar...Libra is the only sign that is represented with something inanimate..." ['Birthstones.Me'].

Question. Libra {'claws'} link to ''scratch'' / ''7th'' / ''balance'' / altar / 180 degrees etc., All as a means...?

And/or: ''Libra is the sign of initiation'' AND ''Janus is the god of initiation.'' Enlarged elsewhere.

Side note: "The word 'conscience' {''con-science''} contains the idea of balance, for it implies "simultaneous knowing," i.e.,knowledge of the facts of the two scales suspended at the extremities of the beam of the balance. Conscience is neither a product nor a function of character. It is above it. And it is here - and only here - that there begins and there is found the domain of freedom." [Letter viii 'Justice' from the book 'Meditations on the Tarot'].

Understanding such 'information' {as one example} gets us closer in deciphering Homers 'secret' Illiad - therefore subject material {mind set?} - as a whole.

And/or: "The circle is an image of pure 'spirit'...The crescent {semi-circle} that for the 'soul'...The vertical line that for the 'mind' and the horizontal line that for the 'body'.

Side note: {Exercise?}: "What would have made such a sighting easier, in antiquity, would have been a tall tower annexed to the temple that once stood here - a temple dedicated to Su-En {usually contracted to Sin}, the Moon god of the Sabians.

In the second stage which we considered in the previous lesson, there is a sudden and painful overthrow of the 'false' wisdom of the world, a momentary, but never-to-be-forgotten glimpse of reality, of the absolute unity of life. In the 'third' stage this new conception of the Oneness of all, begins gradually to unfold. What happens to this unfoldment, and the specific activities involved therein, we may discover from the study of the 17th key of the Tarot....This picture develops the esoteric meaning of the Hebrew letter Tzaddi, named the ''fish hook''....That which pulls the 'fish' {Nun, i.e.,14th letter} OUT of Water {Mem, i.e., 13th letter}….''To hook'' is to draw, to entice, to procure....Has a particular application to the Christian aspects to the Ageless Wisdom, i.e., Jesus chose fishermen for disciples, and promised them that they should become 'fishers of men'...."

The Tor is in the middle of the Summerland Meadows, part of the Somerset levels. The plain is reclaimed fen above which the Tor is clearly visible...It has been described as an island but actually sits at the western end of a peninsula washed on three sides by the RIVER Brue." [Wiki/river Brue]. River in relation to 'Sea'.

Continued: "Tor is an English word referring to to a high rock or a hill, deriving from the old English 'torr'. The Celtic name for Tor was Ynys Wydryn, or sometimes Yhys Gutrin, meaning ''Isle of Glass''. At this time the plain was flooded, the Isle became a peninsula at low tide." [Wiki/ Glastonbury Tor].

"The conical hill of clay and Blue Lias rises from the Somerset levels. It was formed when surrounding softer deposits were eroded, leaving the hard cap of sandstone exposed. The slopes of the hill are terraced, the method of which they were formed remains unexplained..."

"Analogy{?}: "Basil Valentine says of this Stone: 'When ashes and sand have been timely heated in the fire, the Master {'higher' self?} makes therefrom a 'Glass', which henceforth is always able to resist the fiery heat {'crystalization' of something?}. In colour it resembles a transparent stone and is no longer recognisable as ashes. For the unknowing this a great and secret art; but not so for those who know, for its their craft, attained through knowledge and experience...After its dissolution the Strong Door of the royal Chamber can be opened {'vertical'? link}. So we see here too that the glass object, the transparent stone of the wise, is needed if spiritual knowledge is to be fruitful; and the attainment of it means first the 'purification' of the soul in the 'Fire' of self sacrifice and devotion...In the poem, 'The Spoils of Annwn' there is a passage that alludes to the 'island with the strong door where the twilight and pitchy blackness were mingled together' {''Fen'' link?}- the same strong door that Basil Valentine tells of. And further on there is the 'enclosure of glass' beyond which no one beheld the prowess of Arthur. The ''transparency'' of the soul when it is embraced in a higher {'Master'?} non-physical consciousness and so is ''out of the body'', becomes one with transparency of the world of life - the 'etheric' world - that no mortal eye can 'behold' it...All these are 'immortal' symbols...So the way of the soul is through the fire and the darkness and the strong door, into - or through the power of - the transparent enclosure, the deep mystery of purified wisdom {'Bosom'?}...AND/OR...'The Stone of the Bards will prove the harbour of life...Yet it is concealed from the unawakened..." ['The Flaming Door'].

"We believe they were home to elite tribal families / defensive forts / statements of power. But we don't know why most were abandoned by the 4th century A.D." ['Digging for Britain' / Episode 2].

Question. Could that ''elite family/s'' have understood something? Define those 'keys' to answer that ''mystery''. Among others try ''tower'' and/or N/E in relation to S/W? As a means...? {i.e.,the above was 'decommissioned ' in the 2nd century AD - all others - by the 4th. Any Scottish links - either permanently or temporarily to the origins of 'Glastonbury'?}.

The main point being - understanding the authenticity of this 'subject material' from the oral tradition up to the present time - gives such questions {hypothesis?} validity. Understanding the parts {keys?} - gets us closer to defining what our ancestors were attempting to understand {within?} themselves.

"A new way of seeing is a new way of feeling.'' D. Hockney.

Question. Outward manifestation of something within? Archetypal? 'Decommissioned' ONCE understood?


''The Fen is one of the main types of WETLAND. Recall Sea Henge {and/or Seahenge}.

AS IS: "Much has been made of the fact that, at all periods of European prehistory, some bodies were interred upon their sides in a crouching posture. The resemblance to a foetus in a womb has encouraged speculation that these individuals were being returned to the earth to be reborn. This may be true, but as many primitive peoples sleep with knees drawn up, it may be a final rest which is indicated instead. Support for the notion of rebirth may be drawn from the fact that a sixth of the known Palaeolithic burials {scattered from Wales to Russia} were sprinkled with red ochre {author speculates about menstrual blood etc}...Red had a significance in the Old Stone Age which we cannot now comprehend: this would explain why certain artefacts and ornaments deposited in caves were coated in the same ochre...We are left wondering why some people were interred crouching and most not, some with goods or ochre and most with neither, while the vast majority of the population does not seem to have been buried at all {i.e.,exoteric/esoteric?}...The British evidence is a microcosm of the European, being drawn from just three sites {N.B. Book came out in 1990's - few more ,these days. Enlarged within} - One is the Goats Cave in the Gower Peninsula, {i.e.,S/W Wales}, where a young man was put into a shallow grave with rods and bracelets of ivory and covered with red ochre; a mammoth's skull was placed was made shortly before the last great period of glaciation. Making the oldest recorded in these islands...Once the ice retreated...few were found to be interred in the Mendip Hills. At Aveline's Hole in Burrington Combe four individuals were put into the floor, two apparently with fossils, perforated teeth for necklaces and flints." [R. Hutton].

S/W - sea - cave {womb?} and/or S/W - river - tor. Anything? Try ''teeth'' or ''cave'' or ''ochre'' {therefore ''red''} or ''flint'' or ''rod'' or ''ivory'' or ''elephant'' { therefore 'horn'} etc.

Side note: "The only other evidence relating to these figurines {enlarged elsewhere} is their dating, and here another striking similarity is revealed: all those from contexts which could be dated may be attributed to the centuries between about 25,000 - 23000 BC. All were therefore apparently produced in a relatively short period of the Palaeolithic, that in which the ice sheets were starting to advance southward for the last time." ['The Pagan Religions of the Ancient British Isles' / R. Hutton].


'Car' / 'chariot' or Herbie? Question. His or hers?

"Outward manifestation'' in relation to: "In seeking to understand the nature of these hidden reactions we must renounce our superior intellectual attitude which considers them only errors, mistakes, or dross and attempt to understand them in their own terms. For they are so impalpable that the intellect and rational analysis cannot grasp them...When intellectual acumen fails us in this way we have to turn to unconscious products for enlightenment and see whether a study of symbols and instinctive ways of acting may not throw some light on the obscurity. For unconscious factors of the psyche are first sensed, not in concepts, but are perceived in the outer world, projected into inanimate nature. So that when man sees human qualities and characteristics as belonging to inanimate objects {Libra?} - these are not just arbitrary imaginings but are reflections of his own unconscious qualities. When he regards natural phenomena naively, personifying them as in myths and folk tales {i.e.,as one example; as described in such books as 'The Flaming Door: The Mission of the Celtic Folk Soul'. Enlarged elsewhere} - or in the poetic language of art, he is interpreting Nature in accordance with his own nature. His unconscious is projected to the outer world. In the ancient half-forgotten folk myths of a people, we find relics of archaic, primitive ways of thinking which have been largely displaced in the Western world and in modern times by the more developed cultures superimposed upon them. But they are not for that reason extinct nor are they without meaning, as is shown by the fact that they reappear, today, from the unconscious in dreams and phantasies. Through a study of them something may be learned of those unrecognised laws which rule in the unconscious {Wolfgang Pauli?} - where our modern rational and scientific ways of thought are powerless to penetrate." ['Women's Mysteries'].

As an example {i.e.,apply the above to define the following}: "Then Being, BEHOLDING said: Let me become great; let me give birth. Then it put forth Radiance. Then Radiance beholding said: Let me become great; let me give birth. Then it put forth the Waters...Then the Waters, beholding said: Let US become great; let US become great. They put forth the world-food. So from the Waters the world food - Earth - is born." {'Upanishads'. From the book 'The Flaming Door'. Chapter entitled 'Fire and Water'].

''Me {I} and Us'' = {objective/subjective} in relation to ''great'' {'giant'} and ''earth'' {primordial mound}. Among others try ''food''.

Or the Egyptian 'Anubis' in relation to Horus. Explained elsewhere, in relation to 'higher' / 'lower'.

The word 'giant' also used in relation to Gog and Magog.

REFRESHER: "What scripture says about Og, ''Behold, his bedstead was an iron bedstead, nine cubits in length," {Deut.3-11}….The bedstead is never the same dimensions as the person sleeping in is always greater by a third....'The cubit of a man' means the measure of an ordinary man and not by the measure of Og…" [Page 248 'Guide for the Perplexed'].

The 'third' if something in relation to 'sleep'. Try ''nine'' and/or ''iron''.

Side note: "The same myth also provides insight into the two paths or ways of 'salvation'. The Way of Osiris and the Way of Horus. The former is the way of 'reincarnation', of progressive dissolutions linked only by the generative principle; the latter is the direct path; that of the warrior of the spirit, out to subdue the enemy within himself by his own efforts." [Page 129 'Serpent in the Sky'].

And/or: "This knowledge is not set down explicitly in books, but is embodied in the building itself...The proportions of the Temple are those of Adamic Man, man before the 'fall' - and of 'perfected' man, man who has regained his cosmic consciousness through his own efforts..." [Page 159 same book].


Where have you seen it before?

Continued: "The fifth century A.D. saw the first seeds sown in Britain of the Anglo Saxon race, when Britain was invaded by a 'mare and a horse'. The brothers Hengist and Horsa. This was the time when the Druid Mysteries were in decay....And we see Ceridwen - not as a very earthly horse! - but armoured with the sharp attacking bird's beak, and having her body like an 'ark' or womb of the concealed spirit. The new age is already heralded, but unformed and chaotic, like the drawing. There are many references in Welsh mythology to Arianrod, Iris, the Goddess of the Silver Wheel. She is generally supposed to be the goddess of the rainbow, but not the rainbow we are accustomed to see {i.e.,what the author defines as ''clothed in a rainbow coloured aura - this was called Iris - the Great Aura,'' i.e.,in relation to ''dawn of serenity for a neophyte'', i.e.,''an imaginative vision'' {eureka moment link?}}. ['The Flaming Door']. Try ''girdle'' to see it in its broader context.

Something hinted at {in 'story' form?}: "The colours were nearly blinding. Instantly, the 'glass boat' broke the white shaft into a spectrum {'137'?} of brilliant colours, which then took the form of a rainbow -layers of 'arched' light extending up to the sky..." [Page 390 'The 21 Lessons of Merlin: A Study in Druid Magic and Lore' / D. Monroe].

Try ''aura''.


Made of volcanic rock. '15' in total. Anything?

Analogy..."Lake Atitlan is the jewel of the highlands. The lake is surrounded by astounding natural beauty. It floats in the sky, a mile above sea level, relying on 3 majestic volcanoes to hold gravity at bay.
The word Atitlan is a Mayan word that translates as "the place where the rainbow gets its colours". The main tourist center is Panajachel, an 800 year old pueblo of about 14000, mostly Cakchiquel Mayas and some foreigners from every corner of the globe, living inside that rainbow.

In the highlands of Guatemala, especially around Lake Atitlan, the Mayan culture still thrives. The spirit it invokes is the hidden gem of Guatemala, and makes this one of the most exotic destinations in the world.

The Maya are known for being friendly, funny, welcoming of strangers, and also shy. Living among them is an enchanting experience. There are about a dozen other villages scattered around the lake. Some are Cakchiquel, some Tz'utujil and both speak different languages. The indigenous lake people were accustomed to dealing with other cultures they couldn't communicate with, long before tourists ever showed up. [www.atitlan].

Abstract 'lightening bolt'? Enlarged elsewhere.

A {working?} example: in the sense of a representation {one example ONLY} - of the benefits of inspiration and aspiration: "The two side Paths here are also more aspirational than their equivalents that led out of Malkuth. They are represented by the 'Sun' and the 'Star'. The Sun that beams down from Hod is the bright light of self evident spiritual truth, a light by which all dark places are enlightened. The Star is the realization and feeling of 'divine' beauty that comes from Netzach. It is closely associated with Venus, where the pattern of the Earthly paradise {'seven / eight' link?} - is said to be held. These aspirations for Truth and Beauty therefore flank the path of Aspiration that leads to higher consciousness. But aspiration is not enough on its own. Aspiration alone can be but wish fulfillment fantasy unless we have the will and ability to bring it to realization and fulfillment. This is implied by the transverse path across our way; its symbol - the Lightening - struck Tower. Aspiration alone might be regarded as our being enclosed in an ivory tower, and many are there {within this subject} who remain in this condition. High on great thoughts but low on practical achievement. If we are to progress to be responsible servers of the 'higher' powers in the Temple of Tiphareth - 'the sphere of the god made Manifest, in the sphere of the mind' - then we have to be prepared for the lightening flash of illumination, or the lightening flash of destruction of false values. This may come to us as a shock, but it also a form of enlightenment..." ['Magical Images and the Magical Imagination' / G. Knight].

Question. Abu Ruash - Egypt's most northern pyramid - A collapsed one. Built on a hill.

Analogy: {ie., as seen from a different perpective. A different time and place}: "My impressions of Dinas Emrys were surprising, as I had not expected much. I knew that local legend and traditional history associated it with king Vortigern's tower, and that there was a ruined structure on its summit." ['The Way of Merlin'].

Caves and pits found in both. Undermined foundations the cause of both? As a means...?

If Egypt's most northern 'pyramid' equates to something ''undermined'' WHERE would its opposite {firm feet?} be represented?

"The quest for the Grail begins with the question of what exactly one is looking for. Whatever it may be, it is something that has an immediate, widespread effect, whenever it is rediscovered. The persons mind is stunned into a new way of 'thinking,' and the change is reflected [eventually] into a new idealistic form of society. Yet besides creating a sensation, it has further, long lasting quality. It serves as a constant fount of inspiration and wisdom, sanctifying the lives of those who posses it. When it is lost, harmony and good order vanish with it." [Introduction to the book, 'The Twelve - Tribe Nations' by J. Michell and C. Rhone]. Try ''quality'' and/or ''grace'', i.e.,what does it imply? Then ''oracle''.

REfresher: "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."

''...constant fount of inspiration'' = 'Fountain' link? Use it to define {link?} the following...


Bush Barrow 'lozenge' - enlarged elsewhere.

"During the period i was preparing this book, Robert Lomas, one of the authors mentioned above, wrote a further work with the title 'Turning the Hiram Key'. In their previous works, Robert Lomas and Christopher Knight had drawn attention to the chapel at Rosslyn, just outside of Edinburgh, Scotland - a chapel that contains considerable Masonic symbolism carved into the stone of the structure. Rosslyn was built in the 15th century by William St. Clair, the last Norse Earl of Orkney, whose family had, for some centuries, provided the Grand Masters of Freemasonry in Scotland. Robert Lomas has argued that the origins of modern Freemasonry can be traced to the building of the chapel. In a chapter about symbolism, Lomas visits the subject of the 'lozenge' shape {'form'?} as it may have been associated with the cult of the 'Goddess'. He also draws attention to the method of using the lozenge shape as a means of determining the latitude of one's position. He goes on to state: 'At the latitude where the Temple of Rosslyn was built, the solstice angles produce a perfect square, {'cube' ?} and that is where modern Freemasonry began'. This is an interesting observation because in a masonic ceremony of initiation, the candidate is admitted - on a square." [From the book by K. Gest. All emphasis, this readers].

She was said to greet the sojourner in both instances in her multiple forms of seven, her sacred number. The importance of Het-Her throughout ancient times was not confined to the borders of ancient Egypt. In addition to the great Ptolemaic temple complex at Dendera, there were seven known shrines in antiquity of the goddess, corresponding to the seven forms of the Neter mythically present at the death and birth of every human. They were located according to legend, in Thebes, Heliopolis, Aphroditopolis, Ammu, Herakleopolis, Keset, and at Sanai. These locations are said to be the seven 'navels' of the Neter, spanning the seven degrees of latitude that encompasses the land of Egypt." ['Sacred Tradition of Ancient Egypt'].

Question. Sanai in relation to the 'Golden Calf'? If so, what does it REPRESENT?

Analogy? {i.e.,in ONE sense of the word}: "Whatever cosmic map we choose will help us to understand how the inner world is structured. In this sense a cosmic map is a comprehensive magical image in its own right. If we identify with it and build it as a pattern within our own aura it helps us to maintain personal balance and gain general understanding of our own spiritual potential. However, it will also reveal more if we examine and experience it in its detailed parts. By moving from one part of the system to another{'corner' to corner?}, we will find ourselves embarking upon a quest, or initiatory journey. The overall cosmic map becomes therefore a ground plan for a number of possible journeys through ordered states of consciousness. 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]. Try ''whale'' / ''foundation'' etc.

In it is an immense amount of information which should set the readers subconscious mind questing to and fro on a scent which grows warmer and warmer until Chapter 15 is reached. What Chapter 15 means to you will depend entirely upon what you are. It is true this work deals almost entirely with the Moon Mysteries, but, a mans immediate inner self - his anima - is feminine...whereas in this state of cosmic matrimony...for a woman that would be her animus; not anima; if Jung is correct." [Chapter 5, 'The Forgotten Mage'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Understanding what is implied by this author defines what 'fifteen' represents within this subject. The 'end' result of a 'process' = the beginnings of another. Clue. ''Sacred marriage'' link.

Side note. ''...matrimony'' in relation to 'Bed Burials' ? Enlarged elsewhere.

From a different perspective {i.e., something hinted at}: "The origins of Merlin may be traced to the prehistoric past where the primal prophet and a youthful god of poetry and inspiration {similar in many ways to the 'young' Apollo} were originally identical. Humans mediated the poetic prophetic power; such individuals were both the inspirers and the conscious bearers of a community, a clan, a race and its land. Curiously, to the modern mind, we find that women mediated the god-power of prophecy, in the ancient world - while men mediated the goddess-power." ['The Way of Merlin' / R. J. Stewart].

And/or..."So the elders of Guatemala handed the lowland Maya ''fifteen books''. The lowland Maya were told to study and learn this knowledge and that they would be given more books in the future. In this way, the return of the Mayan calendar, knowledge, and prophesy was initiated. The outer world at this time knew nothing of this exchange, nor did they care. Materialism was the way of the world." ['Serpent of Light' / D. Melchizedek]. Recall this authors ''method'' of {teaching?}. Those keys however are universal - regardless of method. The real questions therefore REMAIN THE SAME.

Alice Bailey defines the same within the knowledge acquired between Rule One - Fifteen. Or the Fifteenth Path of the Hebrew Tree? as defined within the book 'The Talking Tree' by W. Gray.

Analogy of same: "The one hundred and fifty Ave Maria's and the fifteen Pater Nosters of the rosary prayer introduce one to the universal river of spiritual life..." [Extract from the book by Tomberg. 'Letter 18' ].

Analogy?..."To recite the Iliad, from the anger of Achilles in the opening lines, to the close when Hector's body is taken back to Troy, takes some 24 hours - rather longer with dramatic embellishments. Committing the epic's more than 150,000 words to memory would be a formidable task even with the aid of the features described by Perry. It is hardly surprising that the mother of the Muses in Greek myth was said to be Mnemosyne - memory - from whose name the word 'mnemonics' is derived for the aid of memory training...It is unlikely ever to be known exactly what techniques were used by the Homeric bards not only to remember the Iliad but also the more than 115,000 words of Odyssey...The poet Simonides of Ceos is said to have believed that memory could be assisted by assigning striking images to the data to be remembered and then placing them in the rooms of an imaginary house. By letting the mind wander through these 'rooms' when required, the images and the knowledge associated with them could be recalled." ['Homer's Secret Iliad' / F. and K. Wood]. Among others try ''house'' until then...

Refresher: "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,[key] and his heart is the altar." Enlarged elsewhere.

Christian equivalent = Assumption day = 15th of the 8th. [Two 'symbolic' numbers]. Or the fifteen steps leading down to the tomb of the 'Golden Child'. Enlarged elsewhere. Therefore the same could be said in reverse,i.e.,in order to reach the 'light of day'. A 'dawning' of something.

"Fifteen represents the zenith of 'lunar' power, and its relation to the moon can be deduced from the name of an old German measure called Mandel, - 'a little moon, part of a moon', which consisted of 15 items such as..." [Taken from the book 'Mystery of Numbers'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Side note: {synchronicity?}: "The highest mountain in the world was called ''Peak 15'' before it was named Everest."

magic sqA work in progress?...AND/OR Coincidence or a meaningful one?..."The dream of a 45 year old psychotherapist may help to make clear how the anima can be an inner guide. As he was going to bed on the evening before he had this dream, he thought to himself that it was hard to stand alone in life, lacking the support of a church. He found himself envying people who are protected by the maternal embrace of an organization. {He had been born a Protestant but no longer had any religious affiliation}. This was his dream :- I am in the aisle of an old church filled with people. Together with my mother and my wife. I sit at the end of the aisle in what seem to be extra seats. I am to celebrate the Mass as a priest, and i have a big Mass book in my hands, or, rather, a prayer book or an anthology of poems. This book is not familiar to me, and i cannot find the right text. I am very excited because i have to begin soon, and to add to my troubles, my mother and wife disturb me by chattering about unimportant trifles. Now the organ stops, and everybody is waiting for me, so i get up in a determined way and ask one of the nuns who is kneeling behind me to hand me her Mass book and point out the right place - which she does in an obliging manner. Now, like a sort of sexton, this same nun precedes me to the altar, which is somewhere behind me and to the left,{in profile?} as if we are approaching it from a side aisle. The Mass book is like a sheet of pictures, a sort of board, three feet long and a foot wide, and on it is the text with ancient pictures in columns,{cuneiform link?} one beside the other. First the nun has to read a part of the liturgy before i begin, and i still have not found the right place in the text. She has told me that it is number 15, but the numbers are not clear, and i cannot find it. With determination however, i turn toward the congregation,{'face on' instead of 'in profile'?} and now i have found number 15 {the next to the last on the board. Therefore 16 in total}, although i do not yet know if i will be able to decipher it. I want to try all the same - i wake up. THIS dream expressed in a symbolic way an answer from the unconscious to the thoughts that the dreamer had had the evening before. It had said to him, in effect: ''You yourself, must become a priest in your own inner church - in the church of your soul." [ 'Man and his Symbols' / C. Jung. All emphasis, this readers - with the exception of text underlined].

Side note. ''16'' in relation to..."In this dream the anima appears in her proper positive role - that is, as a mediator between the ego and the self. The 4x4 configuration of the pictures points to the fact that the celebration of this inner Mass is performed in the service of totality. As Jung has demonstrated, the nucleus of the psyche {the Self} normally expresses itself in some kind of fourfold structure. The number four is also connected to the anima because, as Jung noted, there are four stages in its development. The first stage is best symbolised..." Same book.

And/or {i.e.,expressed in a different form}: "In order to understand what man is at the present time, that is, at the present level of development, it is necessary to imagine to a certain extent what he can be, that is, what he can attain. Only by understanding the correct sequence of development possible will people cease to ascribe to themselves what, at present, they do not possess, and what, perhaps, they can only acquire after great effort and labour. According to ancient teaching, traces of which may be found in many systems, old and new, a man who has attained the full development possible for man, consists of four bodies. These four bodies are composed of substances which gradually become finer and finer, mutually interpenetrate one another, and form 'four' independent organisms, standing in a definite relationship to one another but capable of independent action. The reason why it is possible for four bodies to exist is that the human organism, that is, the physical body, has such a complex organism that, under certain conditions, a new independent organism can grow in it, affording a much more convenient and responsive instrument for the activity of consciousness than the physical body. The consciousness manifested in this new body is capable of governing it, and it has full power and full control over the physical body..." [ 'In Search of the Miraculous'].

Before those first impressions {suggest?} something else; think about it {especially the highlighted parts} in relation to that universal ''divine bit'' - before those two BIGGER questions are asked.

Continued...As seen from a different 'perspective'..."The number 15 has already occurred several times and is related to the rotation of the Earth on its axis, where it takes twenty four divisions of 15 degrees to complete one revolution, what we currently define as one hour of time. It is also significant that the moon is always full on the 15th day of its cycle, the midpoint of the lunar calendar used to govern religious affairs. If Solomon's Temple was based on knowledge of the natural world and the perceived wisdom that existed at the time, then one would expect this reference to 120 cubits {i.e.,height of 'Temple' } to have some link to that understanding. Not surprisingly there is such evidence. It just so happens that all the integers in the range 1 to 15, when added together, make a total of 120. What is more, these numbers fit into an arithmetical pattern known as triangular numbers. These integers produce some interesting characteristics. For example, if all the odd numbers are added together, they make 64. If we now add them together to produce intervening subtotals, we get the squares of the consecutive integers...So what could the number 120 relate to? Old testament text implies the word 'oracle' is associated with the holy of holies, which as we know is a cube measuring... " [From the book by K. Gest. Emphasis, this readers]. Amongst others try '120' ; '64' ; 'triangular / triangle' etc.

Question. Illusional?

A {working?} example..."The popular notion that pirates were nothing more than illiterates who sported peg legs and eye patches is largely an illusion. Some like Francis Drake were high nobles. Others like Henry Morgan and Captain Kidd were highly intelligent sailors and shrewd business people. Just as sophisticated were many members of crew. Doctors, masons, carpenters and experts in most professions." ['Curse of Oak Island' / Dec.2016].
