South relative to North, or more to the point...S/E in relation to N/W. Anything 'dawned' relative to an 'end' result?

South relative to North, or more to the point S/E in relation to N/W. Anything dawned relative to an end result?

That same symbol [by way of Horizontal/Vertical] that every church and cathedral and in some form every mosque and ‘temple’...has within its floor plan. See it yet? The Cathedral of Coventry Uses the zig zag, [ meanders of a river/see ‘symbol’ books for verification ]... pattern up to that same crossover point. A Synchronistic example of the same. Why synchronistic? Because the designer, [ Basil Spence ] had a ‘dream’ about zigzag shapes; at the dentists; not knowing what they meant but he still included it within his overall cathedral design...and in the correct position, i.e., Nave.

Some say the only difference between ‘Coincidence’ and ‘Synchronicity’ is ..."A meaning full one’". [ ‘Coincidence’ / B.Inglis.] Once one understands the ‘divine bit’ in relation to A, B, and C...then that definition has a certain logic to it. A credible one.

"The marriage of opposites is a principle of universal significance..." [Extract from the book by Tomberg]. Try ''Duality''. Purpose of.

"Where good deeds are 'ships' on which to ride the waves." [Chapter 24, 'The Secret of Secrets'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"...and always that tremendous desire drove me on, as if it were something outside myself. It was like the throb of a screw on board ship; awake or asleep, it was always there. One felt it underfoot on deck, one heard it if one woke in the night; it never ceased to drive the ship towards the port for which her course was set, though it lay invisible as yet below the horizon." [Introduction to the book 'The Cosmic Doctrine' by D. Fortune].

''A river of thoughts''.

horus eye

20:20 vision?

"The moon goddess played a great part in the superstitions of fishermen....She was believed to be able to bring back lost ships....'Ships' have always been associated with her....I have described a number of these sea superstitions in Boats and Boatmen, and there is no need to repeat them here. I shall, however, mention the 'oculus'. This is the eye, which is still found painted on the bows of ships all over Europe and Asia. In ancient Egypt it apparently ensured the presence and 'protection' of the sun; but this appears to have changed to the eye of Isis....With the coming of Christianity many of these 'eyes' were changed to the 'Stella Maris' of the Virgin Mary. Some, however, would maintain that the word Mary is really related to the Ma of the Great Mother and thus Magog....The Pictish crown also descended from the feminine line. Here the oculus survives strongly on the bows of boats." [Pages 123/126 'GogMagog'].

Superstition only?

"Ships have long been said to plough the sea, and ploughs to sail the earth.'' [Quote taken from the book 'The Book of Babel: Words and the Way We See Things' by N. Lewis. Put ''plough'' in the usual box to understand something further - relative to an individual journey. Question. Is this subject nothing more than a play on puns? Understanding that universal framework with the 'divine bit' gives a possible understanding to all the above including that question.

Side note: "The Greek origin of the Pleiades has been variously explained as being from the word meaning 'to sail', in reference to the heliacal rising of the group in May {the group of seven stars being called 'Maiae' by Virgil}, and from the word meaning approximately 'many', as well more reasonably from the name of the mother of the seven, Pleione. However, one of the poetic views, {''indulged''?} in by Homer in his 'Odyssey', linked them with birds, and in some myths they are the seven 'doves' which carried ambrosia to the infant Zeus, the Greek counterpart of Jupiter. 'Doves' were linked with Venus, and thus with Taurus as 'ruler'. '' [Page 116. 'The Secret Zodiac'].

As innocent as it may seem to those first impressions try ''dove''. Connect it to the word in bold print if only in determining the 'foundation' of something. A possible one.

May-pole?

Exercise: "It was Edna Leigh who was first inspired to realize that the 'Catalogue of Ships' in Book 2 of the Iliad is not only a roll call of the 45 Greek and Trojan regiments but also the foundation of Homer's star and constellation catalogue...Homer's division of the heavens into 45 constellations is similar in number to the 45 of Aratus in the 3rd century BC and the 48 listed by Ptolemy in the 2nd century AD. Since those times, parts of the heavens have been reclassified and new constellations have been created. For instance, faint stars from a part of the constellation known to Homer as Leo were used by Hevelius {1611-87 AD} to create Leo Minor..." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Conservative Leader Makes Her Keynote Speech To Party Conference

Receipt for trousers? £1000? Only 'time' will tell? Try ''Saturn'' for a different take, on the same theme.

Question. Which came first - IF ONLY in Homer's day - Number symbolism {i.e.,in relation to '45'} or the classification {and therefore the 'boundaries'} - of each. Try ''45'' to understand its deeper meaning - if only within the context of subject material.

"Sneferu's ancient cedar wood ship - 'Praise of the Two Lands' - is the first recording of a ship being referred to by name." [Wikipedia/Sneferu].

Question. Why cedar wood? If certain 'woods' are used to represent certain [concepts? and/or 'aspects' of the psyche] - what would ''cedar'' represent? For example - Was cedar used within that 'formation' North of Stonehenge [Woodhenge]. What would that imply - relative to a 'journey'? [and /or - 'petrified' wood].

''Whose height is like that of cedar trees.'' {Amos ii.9}.

"A whole forest was used up {in reference to the 2nd 'labour' of Heracles} - being an oblique symbolic reference to the uprooting of the dark forest that is widely used as representation of the condition of the material world." [Extract from the book by G. Knight].

images9M3LNZA7Analogy of same?..."In the oldest inscribed tomb discovered, going back to the time of Zoser, a long corridor is found whose smooth east wall is covered with paintings . The west wall is the exact copy of a stepped facade from the 1st Dynasty, with the difference, that at the back of the eleven niches contained between the twelve pilasters there are eleven wood panels admirably sculpted with the titles and representations of the tombs owner, Hesy. The pilasters represent in paint the wooden piers held together by dowelled crossbeams {'tongue/groove': Stonehenge?} on which brightly coloured tapestries were hung. The geometric motifs of these tapestries evoke a particular technique: 'tissage aux cartons'.[Extract from the book 'Egyptian Mysteries'. Enlarged elsewhere]. And/or....

"The first phase of the Satis temple [Elephantine] was an early - dynastic hut built into the corner of the three boulders enclosure."...."and opened roughly towards the south - eastern area of the horizon, where the sun rises at the winter solstice and where Sirius rose heliacally 3200bc."..."In all there are seven temples, built one on top of each other, from the earliest in 3200bc to Ptolemaic temple." [Chapter six, 'Black Genesis']. Recall Nabta Playa in the S/W corner. [information within]. From something 'unknown' to becoming 'known'. Representation of. Anything?

Question. Any gathering of planets to {determine?} that 1st phase?

Northeast = Mid summer sun rise. Southwest = Mid winter sunset. The start of something. The 'end' of which becomes the beginning of something else. Something 'unknown' becoming a 'known'.

"Rosslyn Chapel, built in the fifteen century by William Sinclair, incorporated replicas of the twin pillars of Solomons temple, in a way that anticipated every masonic lodge in the world. As carving on the lower frame of the window, in the south west corner of the chapel seems to be of a Freemasonic First degree." [ Chapter 23, 'The Secret History of the World].

Question. If S/W = 1st degree, what would S/E be represented as?

causeway

Question. N/E, S/W, S/E, N/W - What do they imply? Season changes only?

"The great types and symbols have been put into his [the initiates] own hands - the preparations have been made for his assistance in the long sequence of grades; and he has been told in the Portal of the Rosy Cross that the intimations of spiritual consciousness should begin to manifest within him. That is a state which no man - whether Hierophant in the G.D. ['Golden Dawn'] or chief Adept in a Temple of the Second Order - can communicate to recipients. The most that can be done is to awaken that which is sleeping..." [Extract from the book 'The Magister']. Question. Why a ''rosy'' cross. What does it represent? Question 2. Why should it represent anything at all?

N.B. Journey {downstream?} to the entrance of the {path?} that leads to Stonehenge = Waning? i.,e.,exterior. Return journey, FROM Stonehenge, on the {inside?} of that path = Waxing? Those smaller blue stones - at the end of which - equates to something learnt and/or understood? Before returning back upstream? {S/E?}.

"The 'rituals' themselves introduce new concepts and symbols, whilst offering explanations of earlier rituals, pedagogic description of the symbols of the present ritual, and hints of further teaching to follow in later grades." [Same book].

''Study'' does the same. The start point of which becomes - as it is in any subject - those ''foundation stones'' on which to build on. Refresh [i.e.,revise] in Part 1.

And/or: ''The mysteries Bluestones exist only in one location in the world: the Preseli Mountains in S/W Wales....The Bluestones are unique, being of several different types of related stone {spotted dolerite}, Geologists sidestep the question as to why in only this location they can be found, but legend does not. Ancient mythological history tells us they came from the sky - came in steaks of fire to 'impregnate' the hillside with the 'magic' of the gods. Legend says they were a meteor shower. It has long been substantiated, that the Bluestones arrived on Salisbury Plain well before the larger Sarsen sandstones...." [Page 333 'The Lost Books of Merlyn'].

Try ''meteor'' and/or ''spotted'' to get that little bit closer to a mind set. Rather than leave ALL to those first impressions especially when such words as ''impregnate'' and ''magic'' are used. Not to mention the title of the book?

Refresher..."The concept of the Pillars is of great importance. Everything that exists to objective perception is a manifestation of forces in 'duality.' These dual forces in complement or vortex ['spiral' link], are represented by two pillars. The pillars may be pictured as silver and black, or green and gold, or of other contrasting or complementary colours.

Colour symbolism, is largely subjective. Its expression is a uniquely personal statement.

Concrete Pillars? Stags or Doe's?

The 'forms' are more objective, in their mass and space and relative position, one to another. At root, the pillars are positive and negative, male and female, active and passive, but remember none of these concepts is synonymous with another. Each definition has its own limitations. The fundamental postulate is that each pillar is the opposite of the other, yet opposite in relatedness. As opposite as the center and the circumference of a circle....

...The representation of these pillars also forms a gate {'false doors'?}. Any two 'forces' in complementary action define another plane of being where they are a unity. Two and one makes three. Thus the triangle is an important symbolic figure as well as the circle and the cross " " [Chapter one, 'The Rose Cross and the Goddess' by G. Knight. All emphasis, this readers]. Recall what ''objective'' implies.

Recall 'its' importance in any subject. [Representational of].

Refresher...Some say the only difference between ‘Coincidence’ and ‘Synchronicity’ is ..."A meaning full one’". [ ‘Coincidence’ / B.Inglis.] Once one understands the ‘divine bit’ in relation to A, B, and C...then that definition has a certain logic to it. A credible one.

Or even 'Clairvoyant Reality'. L. LeShan, [Towards a General Theory of the Paranormal]. Formally known as...'The Medium, The Mystic and the Physicist'. "A classic account of one mans search for the meaning of impossible events".

'Three Things You Need to Know About Rockets' by Jessica Fox.

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

"Many other scientists have agreed with Carl Jung's opinion that the number of startling coincidences in ''the net'' increases sharply around anybody who becomes involved in depth psychology or in any investigation that extends the perimeter of Consciousness." [Extract from the book 'The Cosmic Trigger'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Try ''Pauli'' {on all pages} for further connections. Then try ''boundaries''. Question. Meaningful ones? OR...

"Like much of the phenomena described in this book, coincidences are much easier to account for from the point of view of 'idealism' than they are from the point of view of 'materialism'." [Chapter 47, 'The Sacred History']. Recall what the author infers by 'idealism'. [Use the 'find' indicator], i.e.,''search box.''

Think about both in relation to what is inferred by ''the net,'' i.e.,the omphalos stone {navel link}, i.e.,central to something - or more specifically - central; to a theme.

N.B. Saturn {'perimeter'?} = Lord of Decrease. Landscape equivalent?

" Stretching away toward the south lay the Harran Plain, where the patriarch Abraham is said to have set out on his journey to the Promised Land, some seven thousand years after the incredible events that gave rise to the almost alien world that awaited discovery here at Gobekli-tepe, the 'hill of the navel'. " [Extract from the book 'Gobekli-Tepe:Genesis of the Gods' by A. Collins].

"...a knotted net covering its surface. The same stone that Cronus swallowed,i.e.,into the bowels of the earth,i.e.,''lower'' relative to ''higher''{i.e.,represented with ''Zeus'' - or more importantly - what that word implies - to a core theme}. And/or...

"The omphalos at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem, represents, in Christian mediaeval tradition, the navel of the world {the spiritual and cosmological 'center' of the world}. Jewish tradition held that god revealed himself to his people through the 'Ark of the Covenant' in the Temple in Jerusalem, which rested on the foundation stone marking the 'center' of the world. This tradition may have stemmed from a similar one at Delphi..." [Wikipedia/omphalos - including parenthesis].

Put those keys together to define the parts within the whole. Something other than the obvious, i.e.,TABERNACLE = a potential yet to be realized. Representational of. Revise in Part 1.

Question. A realization {''becoming''?} of what?

move7And/or: "My son', said the sage, 'the three masters have let you 'taste' the very essence of their subject. May it please them to add a definition of man.' The Mystic said, 'Man is the tabernacle of the divine word.' The Geometer said, 'Man is the measure of cosmos'. The Symbolist said, 'Man is a living statue of the Great World and sum of its symbols.' ['Her-Bak'].

imagesIFI6O2VRA side step: "...In fact, i was often amazed that so many people did have so many strong opinions on the subject. I began to understand why the Sufi's are always attacking ''opinions.'' Everybody nowadays thinks they must have an ''opinion'' on everything, whether they know anything about it or not. Unfortunately, few people know the difference between an opinion and a proof. Worse yet, most have no knowledge at all about the difference in degree between a merely legal proof, a logical or verbal proof, a proof in the soft sciences like psychology, and a proof in the hard physical-mathematical sciences. They are full of opinions, but they have little ability to distinguish the relative degree of proof upholding all these various opinions. We say ''seeing is believing,'' but actually, as Santayana pointed out, we are all much better at believing than at seeing. In fact, we are seeing what we believe nearly all the time and only occasionally seeing what we can't believe." [Extract from the book 'The Cosmic Trigger'].

That ''proof'' that in this subject - as in most others - can be decided by an 'objective view'.

Question. What symbol represents it? What symbol represents that 'action of the mind'?

juhytgAs {one} example: "Venus, portrayed as a circle, with a smaller circle at its center, has four wings. In this form, it is portrayed in Mexican codices marking a number of significant planetary orientation positions for religious buildings. For example, it is often drawn framing the port-hole windows or doors of a temple, or just rising between the V crenellations of a ball court, {'notch'?} or some similar architecture structure: Such diagrams remind us that one function of the pyramids was to measure the rising and settings of Venus, and thus check the accuracy of one of the three calendrical systems which regulated the pre-columbian civilization. The similarity between this Mayan image, or sigil, for Venus and certain other ancient symbols for the Sun god, i.e.,Ahura Mazdao of the ancient Chaldeans - which showed him as a disc with wings. The image also reminded us of another winged disc of Egypt, which offered a further curious parallel with the Venus of the Mayans. The interesting thing about this was that it was directly linked with the serpent - called the uraeus serpent by the later Greeks...It is still preserved on the foreheads of the statues of Rameses ll in the temples of ancient Thebes..." ['The Zelator'].

A: Recall where Thebes is situated. B: For something further to ponder on try ''gap''.

amun

Why ostrich feathers? 'Head in the sand' in relation to ''invisible'' - as a means...?

"Intriguing, in Thebes, is the development of the Ogdoad which multiplies to the extent of becoming fifteen. The fact must not be overlooked that the number '15' {horizon?} is no longer in relation with the primordial principle but with the monthly and lunar character of Tehuti {Saturn as Lead}. Thebes represents the ultimate phase of the first royal becoming. Whereas the temple of Luxor is the fulfillment, the human epitome of the cosmic opus, the temple of conception and birth of Royal Man {vertical?}, at Thebes the cosmic triad dominates. Under the names of Amun, Mut, and 'their son' Khonsu {''double'' link}, its history constitutes the principle subject of the temple of Karnak...A living, maternal milieu, rich in active 'Fire' lent by Ptah {i.e.,material form. Representational of}. Mut receives the Amunian seed by means of which Atum-Nefertum, at this phase, will become Khonsu. This Khonsu is somehow a new, spiritualised Atum, and this one will make Horus reappear in all his glory {''glass boat'' link?}...The mysterious Khonsu plays a preponderant role at Thebes; his symbols comprise all the scepters tied together, with the exception of the wadj, the sign of opening, an expansion that only Thoth of Hermopolis {Khemenu} can bring about. As crown, Khonsu wears a disk on a crescent, the representation of both the New Moon, and of eclipse, Moon and Sun united... " ['Sacred Science']. REMEMBER - ALL as a representation of SOMETHING, i.e.,recall the symbol of Hermopolis. Link it to the word ''expansion''.

Side note: Amun {male} = 'The hidden and/or invisible one'. Mut {female} 'eye of Ra',i.e.,"She who gives 'birth', but was herself not born of any'' {i.,e.,symbolic intent only}. Put the two together - something hidden {unknown} becoming known {visible} = Amun Ra. 'See' it?

And/or: "Atum-ra, self begotten in the nw, puts forth two primordial Qualities, Shu, principle of the dry, Tefnut principle of the wet..." ['Her-Bak'].

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."

Atum-ra = Heliopolis. Amun-ra = Hermopolis and eventually Thebes. In other words - a beginning/middle/end. All as a means...?

Question. 'IN/OF' the horizon. Which and why?

Understanding that 'difference' gives clues as to a direction - as to where to look for further clues - to a final resting place.

Question 2. Where would the Aten fit into that beginning and end?

Clue: embossed / debossed?

Question 3. {in relation to above picture}: Why in profile, right to left as opposed to, say, left to right {i.e.,as one example the Woodroffe profile. Enlarged elsewhere}. Clue. One relates more to the 'horizonal' {view point?} - the other to the 'vertical' one, i.e.,represented - as one example - as the Royal Way, i.e.,astrology link, hence ''Saturn as Lead'' - as a means?}. Get it? Question. Mumbo jumbo?

Refresher: "A seed sized portion of the inner stone of spiritual effort will transform enormous amounts of the leaden inertia we all encounter in our own souls."

Side step: "The throne is carried on two litters by twelve princes, their heads adorned with feathers. The inscription calls them royal sons and great noblemen {seru}. The royal palaquin is preceded by personages in robes of state wearing two ostrich plumes on their heads and who are described as follows: "known'' of the king, his majesty's followers, the royal sons, the greatest noblemen {seru} and all the dignitaries'. Speculation is rife as to the meaning of the title "known" of the king," an expression that goes back to the ancient empire: If these 'personages' are only members of the court, as the classic translations would have it, it is difficult to understand why they should have precedence over the princes of 'royal blood' who are mentioned in third place only. By their title, however, which can also be interpreted to mean "those of royal knowledge,'' their place should be in first rank. The meaning behind these epithets can be reached with more precision through alternative translations. "Known of the king" could be rendered as "those who know the royal path," by which is meant the direct path through Horus..." ['Sacred Science'].

See it? i.e.,something unknown {invisible} becoming a ''known'' quantity {i.e.,"knowledge"}. All as a means {as one example} - to define the parts within the whole. Try ''fly'' for something further.

'A feather in the cap'.

Understanding the above gets the reader closer to what the author of the Tutankhamun Prophecies attempts to 'see' but without manipulation of information. Enlarged elsewhere {i.e.,try "McEnroe" / Part 2}.

The word ''epiphany'' used throughout in such programs as 'Will Self's Search For Meaning' {Radio 4/4pm/10.8.16}. Many opinions given about ''the nature of our existence'' as seen differently in all philosophy's and religions. Understand this one final subject to define all those convoluted questions and answers.

chaco

'Great Turning at hand' ? in relation to the 'star of light'. Enlarged elsewhere. Question {Oracle?]: Next notable cosmic incident {which will eventually be used as a means etc.,} = Supernova {i.e.,Antares . Enlarged elsewhere} OR comet {i.e.,as speculated by several authors. Enclosed}. Only 'Time' {i.e.,''Saturn'' will tell}. Enlarged elsewhere.

"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'. When the mind and body are combined, they form the 'cross of matter'. [Page 6 'Mapping the Psyche']. Try ''semi-circle'' for a connection.

Question 2. Horizontal/vertical {5-7 paragraphs back} in relation to the cliff face and overhang as seen in the Chacoan culture {Wonders of the Universe / B. Cox}. Overhang {S/W?} U-turn {S/E?}. Recall the semi-circle buildings within same culture. {i.e.,semi-circle in relation to 180 degrees; and/or ''bottom/up''?}. Try ''semi-circle'' {semicircle} and/or ''hewn/UNhewn'' and/or ''altars of sacrifice''. Apse of a church?

REFRESHER: "The relationship of these two pairs of zodiacal constellations to the Milky Way is not affected by precession and never changes. Gemini and Taurus will always mark the northern 'gate' of the Milky Way and Sagittarius and Scorpio will always mark the southern 'gate' of the Milky Way. Of the two, however, it is the later pairing that is the most important, because it so happens that the part of the Milky Way seen through this gate as we look up at the night sky forms the very center and heart of our galaxy..." {+ black hole and dark rift links}. ['Magicians of the Gods'. Page 314].

Some fish as most cultures know... swim/travel back to their original source as part of their life's journey, especially esotericism's favorite fish. The Salmon. This journey is the crux of all the same lore. Why?

6....Not only, [ implied by the same authors ] is A to B possible, but once in [B] a further transition is possible. From B to ‘C’. Represented with the Salmon in some esoteric lore [ North American Indians ], or as with the Sumerians the 'figure' of Oannes,[half man,half fish]. Or ‘The Twelve Gates of the duat’ in Egyptian lore and/or...’The book of the dead’. [For 1 - 5, see part 2 ].

Explained by such authors as N.Ellis. ’Awakening Osiris’, [i.e., relative to what 'thirteen' represents]. Or the Sumerian equivalent...The word ‘Til..mun.’ Or Heaven, hell and limbo of Christian lore. [ Heaven equals an analogy to the 'top level’ [C].

In the old testament ‘C’ is represented by the concept of... ‘The new Jerusalem’. An indirect/direct link to the word ‘Zion’. [ Depending on author ]. Or in the new testament by the word ‘Resurrection’. Its physical 'representation', to those in the know i.e., Shamans [if only in relation to the start of that 'next leg' ], being the 'system of Sirius'. Known as 'the land of the fish'. Think about it it relation to the 'Pole star'. The 'gateway' to the next 'life'. What that same tribe call...'The navel of the world'. ['Sirius Mystery']. Symbolic of, only.

As is: "It seems that a very ancient doctrine relating to the spring-equinox node's movements with precession was later coopted into the nodal ''planets'' of Rahu and Ketu, [enlarged elsewhere}, thus allowing the 'apocalyptic' imagery...At least we can say that Sagittarius - {3 degrees} - in ancient Islamic sources is the location of something amazing, something that over the centuries was kept secret." ['Galactic Alignment'].

The main point however, is ’C’ is not a part of ‘B’, [only in part, not whole, explained within]... it is beyond ‘B’. What ever that implies.

"Isis is the star that rises from the twilight Sea, the star that itself is the symbol of the divine spark in man. The Egyptians called it Sothis, we call it Sirius. When the star is 'unveiled' {heliacal rising?} and brightly burning within the human soul, then conscious touch with the Isis of nature becomes fully possible." [Chapter 4, 'The Forgotten Mage'. Mentioned elsewhere]. That ''conscious'' aspect [within landscape symbolism] represented with S/E. Understanding that universal framework defines that statement. The real question however is ...sense or non-sense. A possibility or not?

Question. If A/B co-exist, what happens to 'B' when 'A' no longer exists? Science informs us that someday the physical world/universe [ 'A' ], will no longer exist. Can something 'exist' without its 'partner'? In other words could 'B' exist on its own? If not what does that imply. "End of days"? Hence that link to the Greek use of describing the 'afterlife' as..'Millions of years', instead of 'eternal'. Therefore do we have to be somewhere, before that event happens? i.e.,'C'. That logic again. Or is it nothing more than a fairy story?

"The ancients of various cultures also tended to believe in degrees of immortality, such that, for instance, angels might "fall" and gods like Cronus, the father of Zeus, could be imprisoned in sleep as if dead. Immortality is not as simple as you might think, nor is eternity necessarily absolute in all traditions. After all, even in our daily lives we all say to one another, "I will always love you," or "I will love you forever," or "I will never forget," despite our statements being literally impossible". Everyone, even in religion, is entitled to exaggerate, in order to make a point from time to time". [Chapter six. 'The Sphinx Mystery'. R. Temple].

"All men are asleep. They only wake up when they die." [Traditional wisdom, quoted by Muhammad. Taken from chapter 25, 'The Sacred History'].

As {one} example: ''In this manner may those understand them, who awake from sleep of forgetfulness, deliver themselves from the sea of ignorance, and raise themselves upward..." [Page 166 'Guide for the Perplexed'].

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

In short they all imply that each individual is on his/her own personal journey, as part of the possible purpose within the ‘design’. Working their way back to that original state/source...by way of an understanding; an inner one. Which again has a certain logic to it. In relation to making use of something once aware.

How? The thinking process they imply. Mainly referred to...by way of ‘intuition; or 'intuitive faculty’, [ explained elsewhere ]... is more relevant in B and C than A. Especially in relation to B-C...and especially in relation to ones ‘new self’. [ New bod. Explained within].

As explained symbolically in the ‘Emerald Tablet’. No better book for an abundance of ‘information’ will be found in Dennis Haucks. ’Emerald tablet’. Especially when cross referenced with other works. [ ‘Emerald’; in its most basic form; symbolic of the ’new self’. The ‘One thing’ representing the ‘mind’, by way of the 'divine bit'. Think about it].

That familiar subject again. The understanding of the inner self, [ higher/lower ] in relation to A and B ...helps with the B-C. That ‘development’ mainly represented with the serpent symbol. A direct link to the Eastern word ‘Chakra’, i.e.,''the eyes of the soul''. [Chapter 22, 'Secret History of the World']. Put ''eye'' in the usual box.

"...Intuition is the aim and the result of the process of a stepwise convergence between the subject and object of knowledge - it is their blending into a unity. Intuition is the knowledge that results from the unifying of subject and object after having passed through the stages of objective consciousness, imaginative consciousness, and inspired consciousness." [Introduction to the book 'Lazarus Come Forth' by V. Tomberg].

Understanding the subjective benefits of an objective exercise - in relation to understanding [as an example] any subject; especially this one - defines that statement. That link to ''Guardian at the gate" i.e.,that mental process we use to define anything - including understanding the difference and purpose [ and therefore benefit] of objectivity in relation to subjectivity.

"...for everything that takes place in subjective intimacy will one day become objective reality. It is the 'magical' law of history that the subjective at some time becomes objective; that the aspirations, thoughts and feelings of today become the events of history tomorrow." [Extract from the book by Tomberg]. Link to the word ''hindsight''. Benefit of, i.e.,understanding the past, gives us an [idea?] as to who or where we are in the present? 'Past' together with 'present' = idea of future? Think on it relative to the contents of a subject - together with the same word as mentioned in Part 1.

'Russia: Past, Present and Future' / Rudolf Steiner.

"Also the aim of Indian Yoga - namely Samadhi - corresponds to 'intuition', as the condition in which the knowledge of subject and object become one. The preceding two stages of 'higher' knowledge - dharna and dhyana - are stages of the drawing closer of the subject to the object that; if not identical with the stages designated as 'imaginative' and 'inspired' consciousness - are at least analogous to them. The way to intuition according to the various spiritual streams and authors may well be different, but all are in agreement that intuition is not attained through practical knowledge or intellectual consideration, but through direct experience of reality. This 'highest' form of knowledge is an ''evolving revelation from the inner being of man,'' as Goethe designated it, and a ''direct grasping of the being of things,'' according to Spinoza." [Same book].

"...Is it knowledge [gnosis] or faith [pistis] that is the source of this certainty? It is the certainty of inwardly revealed truth, which makes itself known as such, in relation to which all soul forces of the human being i.e., thinking, feeling and willing - together say ''yes.'' Link to a 'eureka' moment. Representation of.

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

Question. Was Shakespeare aware of this subject? Question 2. Would he apply it?

"The true voyage of discovery, lies not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes." Marcel Proust.

As seen {explained?} from a different perspective: "When, however, the word ''eye'' is connected to the verb ''to see'' {raab or hazah} as in - "open thine eyes and 'see'...." {1 Kings xix.16}; ''His eyes behold'' {Ps xi.4}, - the phrase denotes the perception of the mind, not that of the senses." [Chapter XLIV 'Guide for the Perplexed].

"The word translated as faith [pistis] in the New Testament means more than belief. It means another kind of thinking.'' [Part three. 'The Mark'. Mentioned elsewhere].

The Greeks [Plato] referred to those three universal aspects as 'pistis' 'dianoia' and 'noesis', i.e.,...

"In addition to pistis and dianoia there was also a third faculty - intuition. This Plato called noesis, and it was thought of as the highest expression of all human mental faculties when working as a well trained team. It is often confused with instinct and with feeling. We all know the person who says: 'I have an intuition; I feel it in my bones.' But the noesis of the ancient Mysteries was something much more than this for it was a faculty of comprehending those 'great universal ideas of which the manifested universe is a differentiated and objective expression'. It is the UNfallen Sophia; it is a wisdom that is beyond all earthly wisdom." [Chapter 5, 'The Forgotten Mage' by C. Seymour].

The cheerful brilliance of the morning lent youth to Earth's old bones, touched the peak with gold, gleamed along the river and put the gardens en fete..." ['Her-Bak'].

Flip side?..."Ptolemy personifies Sophia's ignorance as the fallen Goddess figure Achamoth. Ejected from the 'Pleroma', she is pictured 'alone' in the darkness of the..." [From the book by T. Freke and P. Gandy]. Black Madonna = Hermetic equivalent - as a means to represent something...

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

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

'Queen of Thorns'? [Game of Thrones].

Put all the above together to define..."Ptolemy personifies Sophia's ignorance as the fallen Goddess figure Achamoth. Ejected from the 'Pleroma', she is pictured 'alone' in the darkness of the Kenoma. Achamoth represents Consciousness or 'spiritual essence' that has identified with 'appearances'. To liberate this consciousness, Christ sets in motion a 'rescue' operation of truly cosmic proportions. Christ stretches out along the cross {horizontal/vertical links} WHICH DIVIDES the 'pleroma' from the 'kenoma' and wakes the lost Achamoth from her spritual sleep so that she experiences metanoia and begins to search for the light of the pleroma, her original home {bottom up?}. " [From the book by T. Freke and P. Gandy].

Question. Shadow or anima? as the start point of a 'learning curve' {key,i.e.,'arc'}.

'Intuitions' main symbol the 'flower'; several of which are represented within the spinal column [kundalini] in the guise of a 'serpent' as it is with the Phaistos Disk. A 'coiled' snake. [key. i.e.,symbolic of a potential that could lead to something 'eternal'. Chapter two.'The cult of Ra'. By S. Quirke ]. Eastern tradition places that 'development' at the base of the spine. Remember symbolic only. It represents an awareness/development of something. Hence the link to the word 'coiled', and therefore by the same implication the use of the 'serpent/snake' as representation of that 'development',i.e.,more often than not, snakes when 'coiled'...indicate something 'asleep'/dormant. Thinking time, i.e., the more aware, the less 'coiled'.

A direct link to the Egyptian equivalent...the Djed Column. The spine of Osiris, [explained elsewhere]. To ‘unravel ’ its meaning...understand this subject.

Thinking cap time...Snakes move in the 'horizontal' but can strike/lunge/hiss and spit in the 'vertical' - especially the Cobra. Anything? Also the 'hood' of the Cobra in the 'vertical' {striking?} position - in relation to the 'hood' of the Sphinx in the 'horizontal' one? Try Venom / antivenom? And/or 'poison'{ous}. What do they imply relative to the whole?

pine

'Male' or 'female' cone? or does it matter?

"Kundalini is a word that has fascinated thousands of people. Most people who have only a rudimentary knowledge of yoga or mysticism talk of kundalini- and what fantastic and sometimes downright silly ideas come forth. Some think it to be a mysterious force linked to black magic and the orgies of kapalic tantrics. Others, well educated in matters of human anatomy and physiology but, who unfortunately have not studied either the relevant texts or have not been guided by a 'spiritual' teacher, proclaim that it is nothing but a nerve, right vagus nerve, for instance. There are others who say that the kundalini and the centers through which it moves are all on the 'astral' or some such plane and even paint it in fantastic technicolours, which they consider as better than the diagrammatic representation of the chakras...... We shall not go into the many details regarding the number of 'petals' of each chakra, the colour, purpose, etc.[ authors having a joke]. Such 'details' are not important. And those who are interested can find them in the Sanskrit originals or in the excellent translations available, like Sir John Woodroff's 'Serpent Power'.........Now to the bare essentials of Kundalini yoga. The kundalini is represented as a spiritual force or energy, symbolised by a serpent, which remains 'sleeping' or inactive, in a potential stage, like a coiled spring in all human beings, male or female, at the extreme lower end of the spine called muladhara chakra." [Chapter 9, 'Deeper Aspects of Hinduism' [Jewel in the Lotus] by Mumtaz Ali]. To evaluate correctly find other aspects, [from differing cultures] but defining the same principle. Put ''spine'' or ''staff'' in the box. Before asking yourself that bigger question. Why. Why go to all this effort?

''The 'eyes of the soul' of which St. Teresa speaks are what we call in modern Hermeticism the 'lotus flowers' or simply 'lotuses', and what Hindu yoga names 'chakra centers' or 'chakras'." Question. Was St. Teresa in 'commune' with her kundalini?

A more practical definition?: "The alchemical process is said to be one of sublimation. To sublime anything is to elevate it, to lift it up. The Hindus teach that power is coiled in the sacral plexus, and they call this 'power' Kundalini, the coiled serpent. Yoga practice is intended to lift this power from the 'lower' centers to the 'higher' ones, until at last it energizes the pineal body. In like manner alchemists talk about the 'raising of the metals' from Lead to Iron, from Iron to Tin, from Tin to Copper, from Copper to Silver, from dead Silver to living Silver {'quick' in ''quick Silver'' means living}. And then the sublimated Mercury is turned into Gold. What does this mean? Just exactly what the Hindus mean by the raising of the Kundalini. A release of the energies 'stored' in lower centers, and a change in their rate of vibration to that of the higher centers, accompanied by corresponding changes in consciousness...."

Question. Is not the above a description of a learning process from something unknown {lower centers} to becoming known {higher ones}. A step by step process. Hence the words in bold print too: ''A Gnani is a Yogi who develops 'superconsciousness' by the method known as ''union by means of knowledge'' i.e.,as one example the Kabbala or Secret Wisdom of Israel, is really a mode of Gnana Yoga''. Hence....

 

'' One thing I can tell you. The 'current' is not turned on by any practice of concentration upon centers in the physical body....Neither do you ''raise the Kundalini'' by any effort of the personal Will....How are you to do this? The place to begin is with your intellect. You have to reason out for yourself the truth of the doctrine that you are a center of expression for the One Life-Power, which does all things through you {that universal ''bit''?}. You have to 'see' that the logical consequence of this fact is a certain mental attitude toward that 'life power'. The mental attitude is summed up in a single word, RECEPTIVITY, and it is indicated by the cup-shaped crescent at the top of the Mercury symbol.'' [Pages 20/45 'Occult Fundamentals and Spiritual Unfoldment. Vol 1].

The Phaistos Disk. Snake form?

Found on the Island of Crete. That same place where Zeus was ‘born’. South of a mainland. A new one. All those same esoteric keys; on the same subject; within such books as...’Knossos’. By R.Rossi. i.e.,Theseus ‘coming to terms’ with his lower self, [ Minotaur.Remaining ’lower’ bit ] symbolic of...by way of... an inner awakening. [ Labyrinths ], i.e., from an unconscious, 'Lower’ start. [i.e., 'shadow' aspect].

Joyous Garde? Try Part 5. [''Grace'' link?].

"Something to ponder on: "The 'sticks' carried by the Fool represent the Etheric body of the fool. This symbolism is sustained by the fact that sticks are cut from trees: according to arcane tradition, the vegetative life of trees and plants is supported by the Etheric energies. This is why one of the terms for the Etheric, used in mediaeval hermetic thought, was ens vegetabilis - or the 'vegetable essence'...The Etheric, or vegetabilis, is symbolized by a flowering plant...In Latin, the stick is virga - a sound close enough to virgin, to suggest another role of the stick as a 'fertilizer of ideas'..." ['The Zelator']. Try ''vegetable'' and/or its variations etc.

''Etheric'' in relation to ''quintessence'' {i.e.,that divine 'bit'}. All as a means...?

Side note: "The hebdomad is the only number within the decad {apart from the monad} which neither generates nor is generated by another number within the decad; hence it is called by Pythagoreans ''virgin, not born of mother''.....Moreover, the hebdomad consisting of the dimensions and the four limits makes manifest corporeality and organic life. The limits are point, line, plane, solid; the dimensions are length, breadth, depth." [Page 186 'Alexandria' Vol 3. / D. Fideler].

'The Secret Life of Plants' by P. Tompkins and C. Bird.

"We cannot choose our garden, merely the way in which we work with it."

Question. A 'garden' within a 'temple' ?

Analogy?..."The potential literature for an intellectual study of this is vast. We hope we have provided a few simple pointers on the way. It is however, a 'centering' in, rather than a wandering in the labyrinthine fields of intellectual speculation, that is the direct way of truth. The 'rose' blooms at the center of the cross. And those who are prepared to contemplate the imagery and take it unto their inmost hearts are the more likely to be met by Beatrice from the triumphal car {'chariot'}, and 'led' to places where even the intellectual genius of a Virgil cannot go." [From the book by G. Knight].

Different take on the same theme: "As the rose among the 'thorns', so is my love among the 'maidens'." {Song of Songs 2:2} IN RELATION TO: "The 'rose' reveals a little 'bit' of that thing which is the mystery of what one calls truth. It is sometimes not elaborate {abstract?}. It sometimes does not seem especially spiritual {'pagan'?}. It sometimes does not appear to be especially innovative {basic?}. Yet it has its own beauty {enlightenment?}. The Thirteen Petaled Rose is offered to readers so that they can try to encounter something which is true, in itself. For that purpose, the meeting between book and reader may be of use...The books advantage is that it is not an outsiders point of view; rather, it is a glimpse of the inside...It is hidden not just by language, but by a very different style, by a myriad of almost incomprehensible formulas {keys?}." [Preface - by author - : 'The Thirteen Petaled Rose' / A. Steinsaltz. All emphasis etc.,this readers]. 'See' it?

Recall Part 1 in relation to Song of Songs.

Refresher: "...the 'nails' of objectivity - which give conscience to thought." The symbol of which is the Crown of Thorns, i.e.,"The 'thorns' of the crown center function as the 'nails' of objectivity..."

Hence the link to the first paragraph of the first chapter: "The physical world in which we live, the objectively observed universe around us, is only a part of an inconceivably vast 'system of worlds'. Most of these worlds are spiritual in their essence, they are of a different order from our known world. Which does not necessary mean that they exist somewhere else, but means rather that they exist in different 'dimensions' of being..." Same book.

Personal example: Try ''becoming'' in relation to {synchronistic?} workings {and comments/observations} of Wolfgang Pauli. ALL in relation to that ''bit''.

300px-AMI_-_Goldene_Doppelaxt1A side step: i.e.,a link to that co-existence, {'meeting'?} i.e., continue the ‘curvature’ at the ends of 'each' axe to complete a ‘shape’. Representative of...’Visible’ bit, = physical, [i.e.,east-west]. ’Invisible’ bit = [ B-C ]...See it? [See also www.recoveredscience.com for a detailed analysis on the above. That link to the 'Southern Cross' constellation in relation to 'representing' the beginning of that 'second leg' by way of 'Goose' symbolism.

"Of all the ancient civilizations in North America, human hands have built no greater earthwork than the Monks Mound {Cahokia} near the confluence of the Mississippi river...[www.world-pyramids.com]. Made of different coloured soils; not common to local area. On top a {sacrificial?} temple of unknown purpose. Try ''Silbury hill''.

Analogy with same intent..."The site's final decommissioning involved the remaining sanctuaries, cult buildings, shrines, and other structures being buried beneath thousands of tons of imported earth, quarry chippings, and refuse matter." [From the book 'Gobekli - tepe'. Mentioned elsewhere].

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

"I will give you the treasures of darkness and the secret places." {Isaiah 45,7}.

Sumerian equivalent: "...the birthplace and abode of the Anunnaki was the Duku, a Sumerian word meaning 'holy mound'...Just a riffle through the dirt and soil of any occupational mound very quickly produces potsherds, worked flints, and even human remains, which might easily have been seen as material evidence of the former presence on earth of the gods. The existence of these 'tells' is most likely the root behind not only the Duku mound of Sumerian mythology but also the primordial mounds featured in the myths and legends of other ancient civilisations..." [Same book].

Question. Can you 'see' what the author cannot?

''A special place in hell''. Question. For the Germans or Euro?

Side note {i.e.,as seen from a different perspective}: "In Scorpio the individual is forced to touch bottom. He must be willing to surrender his individual uniqueness and individual prerogatives. As he does so, he descends in consciousness into the common root of the group. He learns to live in terms of humanity as a whole. In a sense this is symbolised by Christ's descent into 'hell'. Through such a descent the human depths are 'redeemed' - that is, they are made significant. They are given an individualised meaning and a conscious value by this descent of the individual...He is like a tree with a powerful tap-root, able to draw sustenance from the hidden springs of life...which are the foundation of human behaviour." ['The zodiac as the Universal Matrix' from the chapter for 'Scorpio'].

And/or: Understand subject material to give a possible location for all that material that was taken out of the now ''dry moat'' that surrounded the Step Pyramid.

As is..."It had long been thought that the two great stone circles of Stenness and Brodgar were the focus of ceremonial life in Orkney; but a chance discovery has revealed they were part of something much bigger. There's a low hill {in the background} between the two circles. Everyone thought it was something left behind by the glaciers - in fact it is almost entirely man made..." [ Quote by the narrator N. Oliver from the documentary 'Sacred Wonders of Britain'. Episode 1].

Question. Any planets and/or constellations to mark a 'foundation'?

Side note. Some say the drain system of Oak Island {North?} looks like the foot of a goose. That 'Island' some believe has parts - man made. Marsh land connects the two halves. Triangular in shape. A connection between wet and dry.

';.

'Triangle' or 'Right angle'?

"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." i.e., look to the 'apex' of that triangle for further clues as to that 'Islands' true purpose. As with the 'apex' of the Nile Delta or for an analogy of same... the confluence of rivers as with the Mississippi one.

Question. Understand subject material to give a possible location for all that material that was taken out of the now ''dry moat'' that surrounded the Step Pyramid.

Same question to the speculated 'trench' that has been recently discovered around the boundary walls of ancient Alexander. ['Lost Tomb of Alexander' / Nat. Geo. March 2019].

And/or: ''Approximately 5500 years ago CAUSEWAY camps like Crickley Hill and Robin Hood's Ball were abandoned {decommissioned?}, their decline heralded the end of hostile activities in Britain, and in the relative peace that followed, monumental construction in and around Stonehenge began once more - with the digging of huge oval ditches {'Precession' link?}. The largest of which is the Greater Cursus...Interpreting the Cursus has been very difficult....Over two and half kilometres long - required a huge area to be cleared - before 20,000 tons of chalk was excavated to form its immense ditch....Flint axes used in huge quantities.

Question. Where was the material put? And to what use?

Side note: ''Hostile'' and ''peace'' in relation to a 'Watershed' relative too: "The round figure 5,500 was used by the author of the Descensus, not for the birth of Christ, but for his descent into 'hell'...." [Page 40 'The Quest of Seth for The Oil of Life' / Esther Quinn].

And/or: "Somewhere into this picture fits the idea of cremating the dead. It was a universal practice in Britain....to burn the dead on a pyre....enclosed in a circular trench and often in a ring of wooden posts....I have only helped to direct the excavation of some 16 barrows or cairns. All of these except three, were surrounded by a circular trench and two had an inner ring of post holes." [Page 117 'Gog Magog'].

The first two examples in the Macro sense of the 'word'. The third in the Micro?

Try ''logos''.

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

Analogy?: The highest hill on the eastern ridge is where the Dome of the Rock is located.

The Wars of the Jews, Book 5 chp 4, 2. It was Agrippa who encompassed the parts added to the old city with this wall, which had been all naked before; for as the city grew more populous, it gradually crept beyond its old limits, and those parts of it that stood northward of the temple, and joined that hill to the city, made it considerably larger, and occasioned that hill, which is in number the fourth, and is called "Bezetha," to be inhabited also. It lies over against (across from) the tower Antonia, but is divided from it by a deep valley, which was dug on purpose (a moat), and that in order to hinder the foundations of the tower of Antonia from joining to this hill . Most people place Fort Antonia on the hill Bezetha. As we can see this is incorrect according to Josephus. It (Bezetha-New City) lies over against (across from) the tower Antonia, but is divided from it by a deep valley, which was dug on purpose (the moat)."

Try ''Ophel Hill'' {more importantly a 'ridge'}. The Hebrews most sacred site.

As one example find the connection between THIS symbol and THAT one. Before those 1st impressions decide something else.

"It would be excellent thing to dissect and analyze the swastika material we have found; to generalize and deduce from it a possible theory as to the origin, spread, and meaning of the swastika and its related forms, and endeavor, by examination of its associated works, to discover if these were religious symbols or charms or mere decorations; and, following this, determine if possible whether the spread of these objects, whatever their meaning, was the result of migration, contact or communication. Were they the result of similar, but independent, operations of the human mind, or were they but duplicate inventions, the parallelism in human thought? This investigation must necessarily be theoretical and speculative. The most that the author proposes is to suggest probabilities and point the way for further investigation." ['Swastika the Earliest Known Symbol and its Migration' / T. Wilson].

8394168-hindu-symbolThat same ‘shape’ {but now in 'tree' form} that the Hebrews use to define a ‘completion’. [Alpha/omega..etc.] Symbolic of that total journey, i.e., A+B+C. All within one landscape. The Neolithic/paleolithic equivalent. The swastika. The origin of the cross. That first effort of attempting to represent that whole journey in the form of a cross within that same ‘shape’, i.e., the true shape of those straight ’legs’ were originally in ‘curvature’ form. Join each curve to the back of its adjacent one. Similar to the double axe. Do you see it?

Finally Cronos, [ lower self/large bit. i.e., Father of 'lower'...shown wrapped, [ externally ] in the coils of the snake. Representing/symbolic of that still in the unconscious/ 'unknown' state. That awareness has to be an inner one. As is the case with the Mayan/Aztec serpent externally ascending/descending those ‘temples’ that resemble those ‘mountain’ monuments of amongst others at Giza and Gobekli-tepe. External relative to 'inner'.

".......in Wolfram, the Philosophers stone is the supreme symbol of earthly perfection. As Jung has shown in his 'Psychology and Alchemy,' the Philosophical Stone is the alchemical symbol par excellence of the inner Self, the foundation stone and quiet center in the midst of the soul. As such it has many analogies, ranging from the diamond body of Buddhism to the Islamic 'Kaaba of the Heart.' Also related is the Oriental and Gnostic symbolism of the 'pearl of great price' surrounded by a 'dragon' which refers to the same psychic structure, while metaphysically it refers to the timeless center surrounded by the coils of time and manifestation." [Chapter on Parzival. Mentioned elsewhere. Within the book, 'Alexandria.' Vol 1 by D. Fideler].

Another example.."When you read the Quran don't look only at the exterior, my son: the devil considers Adam as nothing more than clay. The external sense of the Quran is like a persons form: while his features are visible, his spirit is hidden. Someones uncles look at him for a hundred years, and yet of his inward state don't see so much as the tip of a hair".[ Mathnawi 111, 4247- 4249. Extract taken from the book 'The Light of Dawn' by C. Helminshi]].

Egyptian equivalent, mummification...from the verb 'anp'..."to wrap around", but now in that possible 'inner' sense. Indicative of the 'sacred' embalming tools and materials used, i.e., sacred amulets etc. Indicative of an 'understanding'...that inner one, but now from a ''known'' point of view. [symbolic of]. Hence the link to that same verb to 'Anubis', ['he who is on his hill' i.e., higher over lower, but note...still in 'its' lower state, within the overall journey. ]...the sacred 'embalmer'...who leads each individual into the next stage of their individual journey, i.e., an ongoing 'development'... from that 'lower' [unknown/'unconscious'/] start point, i.e.,''shadow'' aspect, of which all animals in whatever form represent. [Chapter eight. 'The Sirius Mystery'.

Recall what the 'form' of a 'pennant' is a representation of.

Or Chapter five, [page 227] 'The Sphinx Mystery' by the same author, showing two pictures of the dog 'god' Anubis 'enclosing' all its lower aspects, [from the tip of its nose to the tip of the tail] indicative of a potential, through an awareness, left to right then right to left, i.e.,something learned in the 'horizontal' to be applied in the 'vertical'. Represented in [A] on North and South doorjambs, respectively, i.e.,N/E--S/W.......S/E--N/W. See anything? Another clue. Person standing [sometimes shown in 'movement', i.e.,walking] on the far left, on the Northern doorjamb in relation to the same individual seated on the far right, on the Southern doorjamb. North in relation to South. The beginning and return of something. Symbolic of.

Hebrew equivalent; with same principle {i.e.,keys} in mind..."In an earlier chapter, i made reference to the Ark being positioned in the Tabernacle, so that it was illuminated by the sun at dawn, a function underlined in the translation of Bede's 'De Templo' : 'So that the equinoctial sunrise could shed its rays directly on the Ark, through the three doors, namely the portico, the Temple and the oracle'. If the temple {Herod's} was built on the same principle, then, with it being on an E/W axis, at the time of the equinox a shaft of sunlight could penetrate through the porch, and the hall, the five sided door jamb, and illuminate the Ark. In theory, as the sun moved to the North, through the summer months, to the position at the summer solstice, so the inside angle of the left hand door jamb would permit the beam of light to spread toward the south, while the northern half of the temple remained in shadow. Conversely, as the sun moved south from the equinox, toward the winter solstice, then the beam of light would become restricted by the square corner {'head of the corner' ?} of the other door jamb..."

'Rays' in relation to the 'head of the corner'. Anything?

Continued..."For the entrance of the inner sanctuary he made doors of Olive wood with five sided jambs. {1 Kings 6:31}. Which describes the doorway between the holy of holies and the hall. For many months i pondered on this noting that in 1 Kings 6:33 there is a description of the entrance into the hall stating that the doorway was made from four sided jambs - in other words, that the doorway was very conventional. That the doorways to the holy of holies were five sided implied that they had some specific characteristic attached to them...I could not comprehend why they should decide on such an elaborate and impractical arrangement, although they obviously ..." [From the book by K. Gest. Mentioned elsewhere].

Understanding those keys, i.e., 'Inner' in relation to ''Olive'' and ''five'' {number symbolism} - and external in relation to ''four'' {and fir tree?} - together with what doors/gateways {and/or 'corners'?} REPRESENT - gives answers to those questions that this author is asking. That internal process {fire?} of the mind REPRESENTED as something from the 'lower'. The answers of which = 'something of the higher' {i.e., 'inner'?}. And/or external / internal. Embossed / Debossed?

''....To dog ones footsteps.

Additional information {clues?} that the above author has not included..." And the two doors were of fir tree: the two leaves of the one door were folding, and the two leaves of the other door were folding." [1 Kings 6:34].

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

That same symbol that in the bible represents the shadow or anima element of the individual depending whether the ‘start’ point is either 'male' or 'female'. Man or Woman. As indicated...’Out of the Shadows. By M.Palmer. Or ’Aradia:Gospel of Witches’. By C.Leyland. See if you can identify anima/us and its relevant ‘shadow’ to each ‘character’. In relation to the ’whole’. In relation to the reader. In relation to a ‘potential’. In relation to an end result.

Or in its ‘physical’ form representing something that can ‘shed its skin’. Symbolic of those possible ‘transitions’ in relation to those horizontal/vertical ‘keys’. [ Snakes can rise into a ‘vertical’ position as well as moving in the ‘horizontal’ one ]. Especially in relation to ‘The sting in the tail', [ Benefit of ] i.e., in relation to the ‘tail end’ of something.
