Going to - or coming back from those hills?

"The esoteric function of the nome in the body of Egypt is revealed through the character of the nome spirit. For instance, at the 8th nome of Upper Egypt, the nature spirit of the region was 'Khentiamenti', a figure that both guarded and led the way to ''the hidden land'' of the departed, 'Amentet'. It was believed in ancient times that the entrance to Amentet, over which Osiris presided, was physically located in the region between Thinis and Abydos, ''between the two hills'' {'horizon' link?}, a reference to the 'shoulders' of Khentiamenti. Thinis, the earlist burial place of royal persons known in Egypt, was later {evolution of?} incorporated with the town of Abydos and assumed a nome standard called ''the shrine of the head'', identical to that of the Osirian relic depicted in the reliefs at the Abydos temple, where the head of Osiris was said to be enshrined. Khentiamenti, the earthly govenor of the area, assumed the form of Osiris as a shadowy, mirror image of the celestial power with which he was associated. But more importantly, Abydos as the ''head'' of the terrestrial body of Osiris represented the place where the neter's form spread itself northward over the Nile." [From the book by Rosemary Clark].

Question. Why should that be ''more important''?

'Diamond of Virgo'

'Waters of the Gap'. Feet first or head first?

Question 2. Was 'Alexandria' {at its 'conception'} also laid out in 'human form'? If so, where would the 'head' be represented?

Question 3. ''Shoulders'' in relation to defining something {aspects of} within Homer's Illiad?

A side step: "This is a true story, about a boy king born through an ''immaculate conception'' on the banks of the Nile, more than 3000 years ago. He taught his people the science of the 'sun'....when he died they say he went to the 'stars'. They called him the feathered snake. But first i need to tell you about the boy king of Mexico. He too, was born through an ''immaculate conception,'' more than 1250 years ago in the jungles of Mexico. He taught his people the science of the 'sun'. When he died he too went to the 'stars'. They called him the feathered snake." [Introduction to the book, 'The Tutankhamun Prophecies' {The sacred science of the Mayas, Egyptians and Freemasons} by M. Cotterell]. See anything? [After 'pooling' together all the available information....by way of...objective reasoning / analysis].

Question. Why ''feathered''. Clue. Horizontal / vertical link. Enlarged elsewhere.

"For after all, as he himself noted, all the religions are like different colored stones in the 'crown' of The One King." [Introduction to the book 'The Presence of Other Worlds' / Emanuel Swedenborg]. Try "crown".

Golden 'child', in relation to a ''golden shield,'' in relation to a ''golden throne,'' relative to Venus, with an understanding in mind, i.e.,...........

"So Shishak king of Egypt advanced on Jerusalem and carried off the 'treasures of the Temple' and the treasures of the royal palace. He took everything away, including the golden shields that Solomon had made. [II Chronicles 12:9]. Extract from page 140, 'A Test of Time' by David Rohl.

"The dating of the Venus observations, recorded on British Museum Tablet K.160, to the reign of Ammisaduga can be ascertained by the appearance of the phrase 'Year of the Golden Throne' before the astronomical observations which it records for 'year 8', Other tablets from the Old Babylonian period have demonstrated that the phrase 'Year of the Golden Throne' was the date formula for the eighth regnal year of....etc." [Page 289, same book].

To understand that ''information'' understand this subject. The author uses such biblical 'narratives' [or negates them] to determine new 'dates' for that epic biblical tale, therefore predicting that such remnants of such buildings as Solomons will be found. To understand that tales true purpose, understand this subject. Found within.

"More than fifteen centuries have passed since the appearance of St. Augustine's great work 'The City of God' [Civitas Dei]. This work represents the first comprehensive survey of world history, as far as it could be known at that time, reaching beyond the political, social, and economic aspects. This history of the world embraces not only the conflicts and struggles between various human interests, but also - and especially - the workings of a providence that transcends them... It was the first work of philosophical history in the West that was intended at the same time to be a further pursuance of the biblical method of approach. Augustine learned from the Bible to distinguish the essential from the inessential, and to perceive the relationships of essential significance between events in the course of the destiny of humanity. Making use of this method that he had learned from the Bible, he also applied it to a consideration of post biblical times. Thus arose in the occident the first work that had something to say about the meaning of world history." [Chapter 3, 'Lazarus Come Forth'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Blind date - with Venus and Libra?

"Like the hexagram, the origins of the pentagram lies in the mists of time, long before the Solomonic period. The symbol is also referred to as a pentalpha, pentangle, or pentacle. Some of the earliest archeological discoveries that reveal the use of a pentagram figure have been found in the area of the Middle East...The symbolism attached to the use of the pentagram appears to have varied depending on the culture in which it was used. In the past, it has symbolized the 'five' elements of earth, fire, water, air and ether, with ether being associated with the 'spirit'. It is also seen as representing the five senses of sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste...According to some researchers, the use of the pentagram dates back to at least the epoch of a ruler in Mesopotamia named Uruk IV, around 1300 BC. Around that time the pentagram apparently symbolized 'heavenly quarter' or 'direction' {as one example S/W?}. Through this we can see that an early symbolic definition {intention?} provided a link with astronomy. This may be significant because the pentagram is often connected with the planet Venus. This connection seems to emanate from an esoteric astrological belief that suggested that various conjunctions of that planet with the sun will result in observing 'five' distinct patterns, each of 8 years of duration, which describe the pentagram pattern in the sky over a period of 40 years {5x8}. This pattern was, apparently, so regular that the 40 year cycle became a stellar clock for ancient peoples who had noted that the planet returned to the same relative position in the sky after each 40 year cycle...References in the Bible to various periods of '40 days and 40 nights' derives from an allusion to the cyclical passage of Venus as it was understood by ancient civilizations. Although modern astronomers deride this ancient concept of the cyclical passage of Venus, it still held sway until very recent times..." [From the book by K. Gest. All emphasis, this readers].

A representation of something ONLY. Question. Which - ''action {'metal'?} of the mind'' - came first - this subject, astronomy or observations of the night sky? AND why?

''origins'' - in relation to 'seven' and 'twelve' {enlarged elsewhere} - and NOW 'five' - leading to an understanding of what 'forty' may represent. Question. Illiterate pagan mathematicians?

'The Celtic Latin Tradition of Biblical Style' by D. Howlett.

"This book has grown out of an inquiry into the structure of works written in Latin and Old English at the court of King Alfred the Great in Wessex at the end of the 9th century. To account for features in them which seemed odd i examined other Old English verse composed before the end of the 9th century. After finding the same features i examined Anglo-Latin prose and verse from the 7th century onward, then Celtic Latin prose and verse from the 5th century onward, then the Bible in Latin, in Greek and finally Hebrew, with which i should have begun." [Prologue to the above book by D. Howlett].

''Odd'' in relation to 'peculiar'. Anything?

REFRESHER: "The children of Seth [Set] first possessed that peculiar sort of wisdom, which is concerned with the heavenly bodies."

As one example: "The hidden mystery of Mabon, son of Madron is that of the Youth, Son of the Mother - a universal archetypal pattern of which all peoples have some knowledge, but which has particular native variants depending on the culture and time scale involved. Within British tradition, 'Mabon is not only the Great Prisoner, he is also the Immemorial Prisoner, the Great Son who has been lost for aeons and is at last found.' And if he is without a personal name, what might that name be? {Alfred?}...There is an archetypal mystery pattern underlying the Mabinogion in which many of its 'heroes' can be seen as types of Mabon..." [Page 152 'Mabon and the Mysteries of Britain' / C. Mathews].

Neil Oliver investigates the possible burial site of same: Hyde Abbey = last known site, until it was replaced by a 'prison'. A Mr 'Page' {'Keeper of the Prison'} tells an amateur historian that some bones were found by the local inhabitants of prison while digging the 'foundations' - ''A lead coffin within a Stone One'' - eventually 'smashed' - bones 'scattered' . Later on the story embellished with the word ''spring''. Nothing found. ['The Search for Alfred the Great' / Satellite TV]. Try ''gathering'' / ''lead'' etc.

Question. Was Mr Page or any members of the Council that purchased the land in order to grant planning permission - 'participants' in any ''mystery clubs'' and/or ''Christians''?

Try ''Herod'' for analogy on ''same theme''.

And/or: Same question to the 'origin' of the {folklore?} of such tales as: "The Old Religion and its current adherents are all seekers after joy. It is a religion of personal experience and of ceremonies that bring companionship and happiness to the people who share them. They do not see the CAKES AND WINE of their communion as the blood and body of a slain god, but as tokens of the harvest from the Earth Mother and her Lord. There should be no idea of 'sacrifice' {altar link} - for the corn is grown to be harvested." [Page 67 'Magic for the Aquarian Age' / M. Green].

Burnt cakes?

Understand that connection to give a possible burial location {Altar of Witness?}.

REFRESHER: "The children of Seth [Set] first possessed that peculiar sort of wisdom, which is concerned with the heavenly bodies."

Or if you feel like a further head scratch try ’Sacred geography of the ancient Greeks’. By J. Richer. Great maps. A link to those different landscapes of different cultures...but with the same keys.

That same link to the book... ’Hero with a 1000 faces’. By J.Campbell. Or the Egyptian / Greeks / Romans.. etc ‘gods/goddesses’ equivalent. Those so called polytheism cultures. Only polytheism to those who are not aware. Monotheism to those who are. In relation to the individual. Each individual. In their opinion, [by way of implication].

Understanding that principle gives a deeper more correct meaning to such publications as 'Gods of the New Millennium' by A. Alford.

ghost

''Ghost'' the dire Wolf.

"The Mystery gods were not immaterial ghosts in human guise, nor were they material idols. They were spiritual essences. They were part of the 'One God' as a wave is part of the ocean. [Chapter 2, 'The Forgotten Mage']. Recall what the 'ocean' represents within this subject.

''A river of thoughts' - where good deeds are ships on which to ride the waves''.

i.e.,"In speaking of the Pantheons of the gods, it was noted that each god stood for a spiritual principle of a natural force...with one exception, the Sacrificed god, and he stands for the soul of the initiate, to whom he is also the great initiator."[Chapter 12, 'The Training and Work of the Initiate' by D. Fortune]. That link to those many 'illicit' affairs between 'father', 'daughter' and/or 'brother' / 'sister', indicative of same, i.e.,as a representation of something ''outside of the obvious'' i.e., symbolic....relative to the individual.

Side note. ''Sacrificed god'' in relation to ''untouched by fire'' {found elsewhere}. One relates to top/down the other bottom/up. One to S/W the other S/E. Which and why?

Or chapter nine of 'The Synchronicity Key', explaining in full detail the concept of the 'hero' throughout mythology and in to the present, in relation to a 'journey', [chapter eleven]. That same journey that has been constantly written about; within this subject; since the written word came into common use. That 'hero' taking many forms, explained within.....

"Egyptian religious writings reflect a consistent 'pantheism', and frequent references to those spiritual beings from whom life originates, the Neteru. This term as traditionally been translated as the ''gods,'' the Neter being the individual deity of a place or action."......" some scholars have proposed that the apparently complex cosmological system of Egypt that contain the vast array of 'gods' and 'goddess' figures, animal totems, and celestial asterisms - was the 'language' of Sacred Science.... The Neteru represent the sacred notation of the system, incorporating principles and functions into composite figures, each expressing a realm of action and experience as well as an idea." ......

"The sacredness of the Neter does not set them apart from us, but binds all things together." [Chapter one, 'The Sacred Tradition in Ancient Egypt']. Try ''re-union''. Question. Agree or disagree?

"By examining their individual aspects in detail...as well as their places in the cosmological scheme...insights may be gained into the possibilities of human consciousness that the ancients understood through these symbolic devices." [Chapter two, same book].

"These things are not easy to express in words, they are more feelings than concepts, nor can they be grasped rationally, but we can perhaps intuitively sense something of this kind as being the essence or significance of the experience which lay behind the expression: ''I have borne the sacred vessel. I have entered into the bridal chamber." Nevertheless the relation which the ancients sought to establish between men and the gods they themselves called the 'Mysteries'. The experience is a mystery which can be understood only when it is recognized that the ''gods'' are not beings external to man but are rather psychological forces or principles which have been projected and personified in ''the gods.'' They overshadow man, but their roots are buried in the hidden depths of the human psyche." [Chapter 10, 'Woman's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Understanding that universal ''framework'' in relation to the 'divine bit' defines those ''principles'. It also explains why the subject of 'psychology' becomes its main 'teaching' aid.

As it does {or at least gives clues} to understanding the following...A teutonic {knight?} found within a sealed lead 'shroud' within a wooden coffin, within a stone vault in the South West corner of St. Bees Priory. An Irish princess {St. Bega} associated with same. St. Bees being the most N/W point of England. The body being covered in bees wax ; as was the body of Alexander the Great. Together with...

bees"And i saw in my sleep a certain little man, a barber, wearing a red robe and royal garments, and he stood outside of the place of the mortifications and said ' What are you doing?' I said to him, 'I stand here because i have missed every road and am lost. He said 'Follow me'. And going out, i followed him. And being near to the place of the mortifications {embalming place}, i saw the little barber man leading me, and he cast into the place of mortifications and his whole body was consumed by fire. Seeing this, i fled and trembled from the fear and i awoke and said to myself, 'What is this that i have seen?' And again i took thought and determined that this barber man is the man of copper {i.e.,that he had seen in a previous dream}. It is necessary for the 'first step' to throw him into the place of mortifications. My soul again, desired to ascend...again i fell asleep...and again, alone, i went along the way, and as i drew near the place of the mortifications, again i got lost, losing sight of the path...And again i saw the same man. And i questioned him saying, 'Why do you lie there?' And he opened his mouth and said, 'I am the man of lead and i am withstanding an intolerable force.' And then i awoke out of fear and sought in myself the cause of this fact. And again i reflected and said to myself, 'I understand well that this must one cast out the lead - truly the vision is concerning the combination of liquids...And again i fell asleep for a while...and i saw one with a sword in his hand coming out of the East. And i saw another with a disc in his hand, white and shining... and it was called the meridian of the Sun, and i approached the place of the mortifications...And waking, i said, 'I understand well that these matters concern the liquids of the art of the metals.' And the one who held the sword said,' You have fulfilled the seven steps beneath. And the other said at the same time as the casting out of the lead by all the liquids, 'The work is completed.' " [Extract from the 'Vision of Zosimos': Taken from the book 'The Magister'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Defining those keys - regardless whether ''studied'' or a dream sequence - determines what is implied. All being an 'aspect' of the individual {i.e.,in this case; as in a dream sequence}. Question. What aspect {of the individual} is the barber ''playing''. Higher or lower? Same with the ''high priest'' as mentioned elsewhere in a similar example, from the same author.

Proving the viability of studying the subject. The results are the same - and in some cases quicker to assess; depending on what is known. Including interpreting ones own ''dreams''. After all, we all dream do we not on whatever we are interested in. Whatever we may be thinking about - regardless of subject or topic - in our waking {conscious} state - is still there in our unconscious {nightly} one. Train spotters, {as an example}. Do not ''train spotters'' dream about trains - or anoraks? -{joke}. The only difference is, this subject has more ''keys'' ''images'' and/or ''archetypes'' to assess because of its broadbase of {interests?}. But the main key to it all - is the fact that they are UNIVERSAL - and not general specific, i.e.,train spotting. Try ''Dream Stele'' and/or ''Fulcanelli'' to define similar {archetypal?} keys - in order to 'see' the parts within the whole.

A working example: {i.e.,from a day-to-day point of view}: "Back in 2004, England played a football game against France in the European championships, and England were 1-0 ahead. I think it was Frank Lampard who scored a header from a free kick. At 90 minutes England were winning 1-0. When the final whistle blew we had lost 2-1. France had not only equalised but they'd scored the wining goal all in the last 4 minutes. When I went to bed and woke up the next morning, I immediately realised that I had not only gone to bed thinking about those 4 minutes of football and dreaming, and waking up still thinking about it - but that it was the first night in quite a few years that I had not gone to bed thinking, dreaming and waking up about a murder." [Andy Hough/ Detective Chief Inspector, from the documentary 'Gun number 6' / BBC2].

Question. Did those dreams give him an 'insight' to anything?

102255_cpp0KBee0FWp2Zyhwmvh47mWP18YQ9OFaWD2cFPNJjk[1]Another example but from a different perspective: "Which brings us to how best we may take advantage of Chretien's work in pursuit of the 'faery' contacts. My initial way was born of an irrational but long sustained impulse to rewrite his stories from the point of view of an unobtrusive observer {objective?}. And it was this experience that led me to an appreciation of the extent of the faery content within them. From this came a realization of the possibility of their use in making faery contacts oneself - not necessary in a blow by blow emulation of the adventures of the hero's - but through following up what came to me as a result of this exercise. For one consequence of it would appear to be to make the veil between the human and faery worlds a little less impervious. A meditative sequence that came to me was to find myself wandering across a wide plain and then suddenly to find before me a figure sitting disconsolately upon a log. He had an abstracted look, and was dressed in vaguely medieval clothes. A tall knightly {'angel'?} figure in gleaming armour {'Achilles'?} was standing looking down at him, who turned and spoke to me. 'Ah, there you are', he said. 'It's high time you arrived and did something about this fellow.' 'Why, who is he?' I said. 'What has he got to do with me?' 'Don't you recognize him?' said the knight. 'He is an old master and mentor of yours, {Phoenix - of the Iliad link?} and very famous in his day'. 'I don't think i can place him,' I said, 'although he has a vaguely familiar look'. 'Of course he has,' said the knight, 'you were as thick as thieves once {'trickster' link?}. Even though you wandered the streets twanging a battered lute and he sang sophisticated songs in court {'city'?}'. 'You don't mean... Chretien?' 'Yes, Chretien de Troyes. The Arthurian romancer.' 'Why is he looking so abstracted,' I asked, 'gazing vacantly into space?' 'We were hoping you could answer that,' said the knight. 'Or at least find a way to prod him out of it. You once had his ear, in your rustic {'rural'?} way.' Memory began to stir..."

SIDE NOTE: "With patient ears attend..." [Opening lines to 'Romeo and Juliet / Shakespeare].

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

Continued..."Sitting there dreaming of past glories. He's been on that log for some 800 years... Sitting there in permanent bemusement. It's time to move him along. You did it once - in your own fashion. See if you can do it now.'' 'But how am i supposed to do that'? 'You see up there?' said the knight, pointing towards a broad low hill {'Tor'?} that rose from the plain towards us. Upon its summit was a strange device. It looked something like a green biscuit tin, low in height, almost featureless. I saw now that it was it was upon this object that Chretien's gaze was fixed. 'What ever is that?' i asked. 'The sum total of his work,' said the knight. 'The edifice of his brain. It is he who made it, and now he can't break free.' {subjective/objective link?}. 'Why ever not?' 'Because he did not finish it {unfinished link?}. How can you write something that is going to last until the end of Christendom if you have not finished it. That's what's bothering him...Gazing on the reflection of his art. If he does not move on he will still be sitting there until the end of Christendom too.' 'I take it that would not be a good thing?' 'Of course not. There are various forms of perdition, but gazing at the edifice of your own imagination in preference to the Holy City prepared for the righteous is a sin of pride of the more debauched kind. He deserves better than that.' 'It does not look a very prepossessing object he is gazing at', I said. 'That is the outer surface,' said the knight. 'It looks a bit mouldy and mildewed with age, and of interest only to the scholarly ferreting kind of mind. But there is a great deal that goes on in the inside of that green carapace, if anyone cared to open it up. He knows that, but cannot think how.' 'SO?' 'You who showed him much of what is in there - despised jongleur - though you were at the time. He took them, changed them, transformed them into poetic jewels to titilate the fancy of lords and ladies of his time. Even if he did not understand half of what they were about, it was you who started him off on that tack. Now is your chance to help him finish it off.' 'How am i supposed to do that?' 'Take him back into himself - into the past - into his work. Take him back through it, and out of the other side.'...{'Phoenix' link, i.e.,subjective/objective its pro's and con's - enlarged elsewhere}…

"Green carapace'' in relation to: " A papyrus of the 21st dynasty says of the Bennu that it is 'the one who came into being by itself'. It symbolizes the anticipated rebirth of the soul in the Underworld and was carved onto the backs of scarab amulets buried with mummified bodies. This ensures that the heart..." Enlarged elsewhere.

To save the soul of a poet, what more could a once low life street entertainer ask?' 'What do i have to do?' 'Take him up to the top of the hill. He considers it the pinnacle of his achievement, {higher of the lower?} - even if it is really a millstone around his neck. 'And when we get there what then?' 'All will be revealed. You will find a polygonal structure {enlarged elsewhere}, at each one of its walls a gate, and at each gate a sentinel {archetype?} you will recognize...Chretien de Troyes!' he said, in a voice as sepulchral as it was commanding, 'Go where the boy shows you. He will tell you how to finish your task'...'Follow him, lead him,' said the knight, to me in the same commanding manner. There was something vaguely familiar about this figure that seemed as ambivalent as his last command. His appearance seemed to change like an image in a haze. One moment clear and shinning, almost like St Michael or St George. At another having a coarser, bloodier look, like a Carolingian hero. And then again superimposed by a an older frailer figure {aspects of?}. 'One thing. Tell me your name before you go,' I said. His eyes glowed swiftly like blown coals. 'I see you have not forgotten the power of names,' he said. 'The old lore and memory returns to you. But that is not for me to reveal {nickname link?} - as yet. Perhaps you would do better to consider the name of my horse. And that is a riddle that i leave you with. I give you two clues. Is it Pegasus or Rosinante?' With these words the figure faded, and i turned to follow the shambling form of the poet as he ascended the hill..." ['The Faery Gates of Avalon'].

Question. Dream symbolism {lucid?} - ONLY ? Try ''Pegasus''.

Side note: The author {G. Knight} had - in his early life - inspirations and aspirations to be both a poet and musician.

Question 2. {And/or exercise}: ''Sepulchral'' in relation to 'transcendent third'. Which 'character/s' {or archetype/s?} represents two thirds and one third? And why? Try ''tomb''.

And/or: "The other talent is that of the ability to be astonished or enlightened. To crack open the structures of the concrete mind, the sepulchres of preconceived ideas, to let in a little inspiration. To bring release to the spirits in prison, all those truths that have been ignored, rejected or suppressed." [ from the book by G. Knight].

"Purposely slanted. Over time some were covered with earth and then became long mounds ...''Error runs...

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

Side note: "Perhaps we shall fare better when enquiring after the 'deity' or deities in whose honour the tomb - shrines might have been raised. One means of approach to this question is to examine the orientation of the tombs, for if it can be demonstrated that they point towards the sun or moon, then a sky cult of some sorts is implied. At once it can be seen that many tombs are disqualified from inclusion. The earthen long barrows of Cranborne Chase, Dorset, are laid out along ridges, while those of the Yorkshire Wolds were apparently designed to overlook river valleys. The simple passage graves clustered at Carrowkeel, County Sligo, all face between north and N/W, and if they seem to be pointing to anything then it is the great cemetery at Carrowmore, nearby. At least one Orkney passage grave was sited to look at a neighbouring tomb. A tomb of the Clyde tradition on the Isle of Arran faces the midsummer sunrise fairly exactly, but there are nineteen other specimens of the same style on the same island which point in quite different directions. So the ONE midsummer alignment could be a an accident {Micro?}. But having said all this, a majority of the Irish court cairns, of the Cotswold - Severn tombs, of the earthen long barrows and of either the mounds or the passages of the northern Scottish monuments, face between north east and south west {Macro?}. Aubrey Burl, who has taken more interest in this aspect of the tombs than any other scholar, made a survey of the Wiltshire long barrows. He discovered that although most could be said to have faced the sun's span, a significant majority were aligned upon points outside of it, but within that of the moon...This may well be correct; but another significant majority of these long barrows, as of the Cotswold - Severn tombs, the court cairns and the Scottish sites, point outside the range of either or both of the great heavenly bodies... Perhaps they just pointed toward the warmest {S/E?} and least windy {S/W?} direction...So sky gazing has not achieved anything conclusive, and we have instead to turn our attention to the earth, and to confront the question of the Goddess..." ['The Pagan Religions of the Ancient British Isles'. All emphasis, this readers].

olmec-225x300Side note: Attempting to 'define' the above gives us the chance to get into the heads of such individuals as belonged to the such groups as: "Around 9000 years age mainland Europe underwent a social and technological revolution...the Neolithic era. Characterized by farming and permanent settlements, the new culture and its ideas slowly expanded west, before they finally crossed into Britain around 4000BC....Long Barrow burial tombs....the funeral practices of which were peculiar....They had de-fleshment and cutting off of heads. Heads were treated completely different to other parts of the body....The whole Barrow was then covered with earth dug from large pits...." ['Operation Stonehenge: What lies Beneath' / BBC 1. Episode 1].

Question. What were those 'pits' then used for?

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''.

Try the Medway Gap for a working example.

The author using his 'pagan' knowledge in the same vein as Plato and Gurdjieff {enlarged elsewhere} as his ''method'' of enticing the reader to understand the {Micro} within the {Macro}, i.e.,''Nineteen plus the ''one'' = 20 symbolism. And/or ''face on'' in relation to 'in profile'. And/or ''outside'' / 'inside' as defined {that very first one?} in Homer's Secret Iliad - those 'boundaries' that are defined as inside/outside the Milky Way or Zodiac. All as a means...? Together with...

"Through Christ, there can enter into the winter cold {S/W?} of knowledge a warmth which in no way obscures or corrupts it, but gives it life; and into the stormy creative chaos of the instinctive life he brings a light {S/E?} which does not lame it, but purifies and redeems it." ['The Flaming Door'].

'Strong' or 'weak' legs?

''Life'' in relation to 'Goddess'. ''Lame'' in relation to a 'Blacksmith' {i.e.,as one example Hephaestus}.

And/or "Error runs down an inclined plane {'fall'?}, while truth has to laboriously climb its way up hill." Top/down / Bottom/up. Which and why?

A {deeper?} read: "He bases it on the Apocryphal Gospel of Nicodemus or Acts of Pilate which treats at some length the role of Joseph of Arimathea - who is mentioned briefly in the Gospels as getting permission for custody of the body of Jesus from Pontius Pilate and burying it in his own sepulchre. There does in fact seem to be strangely little written or thought about Joseph of Arimathea, apart from latter stories of receiving the blood of Christ in the 'Cup' of the Last Supper, which we owe to Robert de Boron. Even going by the bare bones of the Gospel narratives, if it had not been for Joseph of Arimathea there would have been no empty tomb, and no traditional story of the Resurrection! He plays a crucial role in the drama of the Passion. Again we see how neglected aspects of orthodoxy tend to spring up with many accretions about them." ['Experience of the Inner Worlds'].

Question. Same as question 2 {four/five paragraphs back}. See it?

''Bare bones'' in relation to: "Awareness adds 'flesh' to those dry bone/s. Link to the meaning of ''garment'' symbolism. And the same keeps the door open. Knowledge keeps all things open; never shut. AND THEREFORE THE {METHOD?} used. Final link to the word 'Gnosis' - {mechanics of?}.

And/or: "...nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known." [Matthew X, 26].

"...symbols are not obstacles that must be eliminated in order to arrive at knowledge of the truth, but rather means for receiving 'revelation'. The "clothes" - the symbols - of truth are for each not what hides it, but rather what reveals it." [Extract from the book by Tomberg].

A {working?} example {i.e., if only in the Old Testament sense of the 'word'}: "I will deliver thee into the hand of them that thou hatest, into the hand of them from whom thy mind is alienated. And they shall deal with thee hatefully, and shall take away all thy labour - and shall leave thee naked and bare...." [Ezekiel 23:29].

Try Gog/Magog.

"O children of Adam. Indeed, we have given you garments to cover your 'nakedness',[key] and as a thing of beauty;...but the garment of god-consciousness is the best of all. This is one of gods messages....that human beings might take it to heart". [Quran 7:26].

It was the 'wall' that made him. Will it be the wall that breaks him?

Those positive and negative aspects we all contain, [ 'vices/virtues'. New testament ] which; in their opinion; we can be constantly at odds with. We 'struggle'/ ’wrestle’ with, [ Keys ]...in order to strike that middle ground. That inner balance. By way of that 'inner landscape’.[ Explained elsewhere ]. Indicating amongst other things the benefit of being open minded to new ideas...as opposed to mental blocks. Represented as ‘walls’. As in the "Walls of Jericho". Or represented as short/high walls and in part as ‘false’ doors as indicated in all the surrounding ‘boundaries’... [key word. Egyptian equivalent = ‘Chambers’ ]...of temple complexes, including those now found in the Orkney islands.

A 'working' example: "It is impossible to describe in full the way work in a group is conducted," continued G. ''One must go through it. All that has been said up to now are only hints, the true meaning of which will only be revealed to those that go on with the work and learn from experience what 'barriers' mean and what difficulties they represent." ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

Follow the title of the book to 'see' it in its broader context - to see it beyond those first impression ones {'walls'?}.

A more practical example... a quote in relation to a friend. Namely Mr A. M. Young, author of amongst others 'Consciousness and Reality'...to Mr R.Temple, author of the 'Sirius Mystery'...."To Bob, who went through the door". Question. How far through the door? i.e.,does he really believe that 'life' exists on Sirius. Does he not at the very least, consider it to be a Shamanic 'experience'? If so, what does that imply? Explained elsewhere.

Those complexes [in reference to those found on the ''Orkney Islands''] that predate Stonehenge. North of this overall island. North / South two more key words. The beginning of the overall picture will always be represented in any cultures monuments north of that particular landscape, [ as in the above example ]. The return journey always depicted from the south. As well as the 'start' of something new. The start of a new phase/ progress within that overall journey.

A {working?} example {i.e.,''buffers'' in relation to ''walls''}: "A very important moment in the work of oneself is when a man begins to distinguish between his personality and his essence. A man's real I, his individuality, can grow only from his essence. It can be said that a man's individuality is his essence, grown up, mature. But in order to enable essence to 'grow up', it is first of all necessary first of all to weaken the constant pressure of personality upon it, because the obstacles to the growth of essence are contained in personality. If we take an average cultured man we shall see that in the vast majority of cases his personality is the active element in him while his essence is the passive element. The inner growth of a man cannot begin so long as this order of things remains unchanged. Personality must become passive and essence active. This can only happen if 'buffers' are removed or weakened, because 'buffers' are the chief weapon by the help of which personality holds essence in 'subjection'. " ['In Search of the Miraculous'. Emphasis, this readers].

"...And he gave you life. Then will he cause you to die; and will again bring you to life. And again to him will you return." [Quran 2 : 28].

South West corner / 'boundary' of Egypt is the location of Jebel Uwainat, as speculated and researched by such individuals as R. Bauval and T. Brophy, within the book 'Black Genesis'. That same anchor point that has along its East / West alignment both Nabta Playa and Abu Simbel. All South of those main 'monuments'. South West in relation to North East. Uwainet in relation to the Nile Delta. 'Eyes' in relation to 'ears'.

Nabta Playa, what the author calls a ''miniature Stonehenge.'' The 'stones' of which no larger than 'knee' height. Both hewn / unhewn. One of its 'larger' stones however, may resemble a 'cow'. Formed at the base of a prehistoric lake. [Chapter six]. 'Large' in relation to 'small';. [and / or visa- versa, i.e, the Macro within the Micro]. Cow in relation to 'bull'. Sirius in relation to the 'Big Dipper' [Thigh]. South relative to North. Hathor in relation to the 'House of Horus', [by way of 'Orion']. More specifically... 'churning' in relation to a 'grinding'. All of which are found within that countries 'wasteland'. Something unknown that has the potential to become a 'known', [all of which have to be represented in some 'form']. i.e...

green"Proceed to the Western point and face outward. Be aware of the soft contemplative hush of eventide, and of being surrounded by the rich gold of autumn colours and of ripe fruits and nuts, and the gathered corn and all good things of harvest home. See yourself at the border of a still lake...On the horizon before you the setting sun...disappearing below the ground of the purple mountains in the far West, on the other side of the lake, whence you can see far in the distance a winding path leading up to the heights...You notice in the greening azure of the upper sky a few first faint stars, and shinning predominantly amongst them, as herald of them all, the great lamp of Venus, the Evening star. At the same time, be aware of a last flicker of a point of light from Mercury, the 'Messenger' of the gods, and attendant of the 'sun', following its 'master' below the horizon. And then be aware of the mistress of the night sky, the crescent moon, with the evening star between its horns, like a pale lantern in the sky before you. The darkening clouds of the Western horizon almost appear to be like herds of lowing cattle, and you become aware of a great figure of a spotted cow, building over the lake before you. This is Mona, most ancient of sacred symbols..." [Extract from the book by G. Knight].

From a different perspective {flip side?}: "Miserable and starving his crew spot some tasty looking 'cattle' at the next 'island' {wet/dry link}. They move in for the kill even though warned not too by Odysseus. As they belong to the god of the sun. But while he 'sleeps' they defy him, gorging themselves on the forbidden flesh: 'The gods then all at once showed forth portents, the hides crawled. The meat, both roast and raw, bellowed upon the spits. AND THEIR WAS A LOWING AS THOUGH OF CATTLE. Odysseus and his men will pay a high price for their barbeque. Back at sea the gods smashed their 'ships' to pieces. All 'die' except Odysseus'..." [Gods and Monsters: Homers Odysseus' / Simon Armitage].

dalmation island

Dalmatian island. Full of vines and olive trees. Question. Bitter or sweet? Question 2. How could that NATURAL feature be represented within a subject and why?

Question. Coincidence or a meaningful one? Either way you begin to 'see' why certain symbols/keys/archetypes are {enacted?} within the so called 'Mystery schools' - in relation to N/S/E/W. Enlarged elsewhere. To many to mention - the obvious ones highlighted, in one form or another. The main talking point however {if only for this reader} is within that final sentence,i.e.,''lowing cattle'' in relation to the 'clashing rocks' and/or ''spotted cow'' in relation to 'spots and stripes' and/or ''Mona'' in relation to the picture of same of which many of the above symbols/archetypes are found within - which leads to the question of there possible connection or even inspiration?

''Bull'' and ''Milk''?

And/or "Indeed deer themselves were regarded as partly 'supernatural' animals in their own right. They were known as ''cattle of the faeries'' and believed capable of conveying souls..." ['The Faery Gates of Avalon']. 'Deers' in relation to 'forests' {trees?}.

Synchronistic analogy?..."Otto's book gave rise in 1935 to publication of my first thoughts about Dionysos, which had come to me in a vineyard in southern Pannonia and on the Dalmatian island of Korcula...." [From the book by C. Kerenyi. Emphasis, this readers].

Cow /Dog. Question. Top/down - bottom/up? But whats the common factor?

dog2"The Dalmatian is a breed of large dog, noted for its unique black or liver spotted coat...used as a 'carriage' dog in its early days...Its roots trace back to Croatia and its historical region of Dalmatia." [Wikipedia].

"Korcula is a Croatian island in the Adriatic sea...The island belongs to the central Dalmatian archipelago, separated from the peljesac peninsula by a narrow strait...It stretches in an east to west direction...It is the 6th largest island...Legend says the island was founded by Trojan 'hero' Antenor, who was one of the wisest of the Trojan Elders. [Wiki. All emphasis, this readers}.

Side note: "The peninsula of Messini, the land of Nestor, the Gerenian charioteer, was associated with five sided Auriga, the constellation of the charioteer." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Sinai Peninsula? As a means...?

''Native essence'' in relation to - "The swan is white without spot." Dog/Swan - anything?

"Various great Jain teachers of India have been called tirhakaras ''ford makers,'' because they reveal the passage by which bewildered humanity may cross over and beyond the stormy seas of 'Samsara' {the karmic wheel, the recurrence of lives and deaths}. Samsara {literally, ''a flowing with'' the phenomenal flux} induces man to take the line of least resistance. ''Whoever therefore will be a 'friend' of the world is the 'enemy' of god.'' To become a friend of God, man must overcome the demons of his own karma or actions that ever urge him to spine-less acquiescence in the mayic delusions of the world. A knowledge of the iron law of karma encourages the earnest seeker to find the way of final escape from its bonds. Because the karmic slavery of human beings is rooted in the desires of maya-darkened minds, it is with mind control that the yogi concerns himself. The various cloaks of karmic ignorance are laid away, and man views himself in his native essence." [From the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'].

Ayles-ford / Guild-ford / Bul-ford? And/or Saint Catherine of the Wheel?

Question. What would represent a ''flowing against''?

Christchurch?

'Cathbadh' ?

"....he alluded to unexplained structural alterations made to St. Catherine's Chapel. Interestingly, he refers to an account made by Thackeray Turner in 1890 of {same} Chapel, which lies just the south of Guild-ford....A peculiar arrangement whereby the upper windows of the chapel had been blocked {therefore something of the 'lower'?} - and had doors inserted to give access to what he believed had been a gallery {to look 'back on'?}. He also noticed that the doorstops had been designed so that the south door would open inwards and the north door outwards...." [Pages 39/40 'The Pilgrims Way' / Derek Bright].

Try 'Janus' / 'Great step' / 'gallery'.

Something hinted at: " The mystical Way is a trackless path on which the pilgrim seeks to 'encounter' god 'face to face', believing utterly in the promise: 'I will give you the treasures of darkness and the secret places.' {Isaiah 45,7}. Finding ones own inner way is by no means dependent upon how others have travelled, but the length of the journey is considerably diminished if spent in the company of one who is also travelling. In this way, the great mystics of the church have 'companioned' pilgrims from the medieval mystics Julian of Norwich, the author of the Cloud of Unknowing, Thomas a Kempis, and St. Catherine of Siena...." [Page 85 'The Western Way'. Vol 2].

horus eyeSomething extra: "The Hebrews knew it as Neshr, an Eagle, Falcon, or Vulture; and the Chaldee Paraphrase asserted that it was figured on the banners of Dan; but as these tribal symbols properly were for the zodiac, Scorpio was normally ascribed to Dan....In Abraham's day Scorpio was figured as an Eagle. Caesius said that Aquila represented the Eagle of military Rome, or the Eagle of St. John; but Julius Schiller had already made it Saint Catherine the Martyr; and Erhard Weigel...started a new set of constellations based on the heraldry of the Brandenburg Eagle - made up from Aquila, Antinous and the Dolphin." [ Page 57/58 'Star Names their Lore and Meaning'].

Put those keys together to define a mindset. i.e., if Eagle represents something of the higher; what represents 'lower'. Clue = Scorpio, therefore redeemed/unredeemed link. While recalling that Aquila is known in some circles as the ''living eye''. { Side note: of which on the end of its claw is the Lyre. That link to the 'Manger'' - The micro AND macro}.

"The story of Christchurch Priory goes back to at least the middle of the 11th century, as Domesday says there was a priory of 24 secular canons here in the reign of Edward the Confessor. The Priory is on the site of an earlier church dating from 800AD. In 1094 a chief minister of William II, Ranulf Flambard, then Dean of Twynham, began the building of a church. Local legend has it that Flambard originally intended the church to be built on top of nearby St. Catherine's Hill but during the night all the building materials were mysteriously transported to the site of the present priory. Although in 1099 Flambard was appointed Bishop of Durham, work continued under his successors. A mid-12th century account recording the legend of the Christchurch Dragon indicates that by 1113 the new church was nearing completion under Dean Peter de Oglander." [Wiki].

SIDE NOTE: {working example: In relation to ''spotless'' a few paragraphs back}: "We could call these transitory experiences spots on a fabric, spots that can be removed by totally contradictory impressions, or modified by impressions that are more or less different.

"Son, i have words of warning, i would save you from coming ills, produced by the grinding wheels of cause and effect..."[Same book]. That link to the meaning of Karma - The Old Testaments main principle. Its core theme. Understanding that universal framework especially in the context of what all imply by the ''divine bit'' makes sense of such [puns?] as - ''what goes around, comes round'' and/or ''like attracts like'' in relation to the word ''fate'' and/or the subject of Astrology RELATIVE to freedom of will within those boundaries of ''cause and effect''. See it yet? i.e.,.

Understanding the above makes sense of the following - before those bigger questions are asked..."Superstitious awe of astrology makes one an automaton, slavishly dependent on mechanical guidance. The wise man defeats his planets - which is to say, his past - by transferring his 'allegiance' from the creation to the 'creator'. The more he realizes his unity with spirit, ['divine bit' link. This readers input] the less he can be dominated by matter...The deeper the self realization of man, the more he influences the whole universe by his subtle spiritual vibrations, and the less he himself is affected by the phenomenal flux..."

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

A {working?} example: "But at the same time, possibilities of evolution exist, and they may be developed in separate individuals with the help of appropriate knowledge and methods. Such development can only take place in the interests of the man himself against, so to speak, the interests and forces of the planetary world {i.e.,what this author defines as ''mechanical''}. The man must understand this: his evolution is necessary only to himself. No one else is interested in it. And no one is obliged or intends to help him. On the contrary, the forces which oppose the evolution of large masses of humanity also oppose the evolution of individual men. A man must outwit them. And one man can outwit them, humanity cannot. You will understand later on that all these obstacles are very useful to a man; if they did not exist they would have to be created intentionally, because it is by overcoming obstacles that man develops those qualities he needs. This is the basis of the correct view of human evolution. There is no compulsory, mechanical evolution. Evolution is the result of conscious struggle..." ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

''Mechanical'' in relation to 'Gnosis' {intent/purpose of}. Spirit in relation to soul. Anything?

"Sri Yukteswar smiled. 'There is a deeper astrology, not dependent on the testimony of calendars and clocks. Each man is a part of the 'creator', or Cosmic man; he has a heavenly body as well as one of earth. The human eye sees the physical form, but the inner eye penetrates more profoundly , even to the universal pattern of which each man is an integral and individual part. " [Same book].

Question. ALL nothing more than fantasists?

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

Something more heavy going; something that requires a firmer headscratch..."Karma is thus seen as the law of evolution, in which the hierarchies are seated and what is called 'unconscious nature' is in reality an aggregate of forces manipulated by 'semi-intelligent beings' {Elementals} guided by high planetary spirits {Dhyani-Chohans}, whose collective aggregate [i.e.,higher/lower link] forms the manifested verbum of the UNmanifested LOGOS."[Extract from the book 'The Magister'. Emphasis, this readers]. Try ''elementals'' before those first impressions dictate {suggest?} something else.

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

The Hendaye Cross. A 'cube' like structure for a base, on which to ''build'' on?

As in the example of the ‘birth place of Zeus’ [ Explained elsewhere ]. Provence - South France, another example. Some say from where the ’romances’ came. Those ‘tales’ where most had ‘twelve’ members. That link to the symbolism of ’Thirteen’. Explained elsewhere. That same place that has links to Mary/Joseph and the Hendaye Cross. Mentioned elsewhere. Everything has a beginning/end. Which each of those words; independent of each other; can be a representation of.

A more ‘head scratching’ example is the Hebrew tree. Representation of which is ‘North-south’. Top/down as opposed to bottom/up or what later became known as dry/wet way as opposed to wet/dry. [ Explained elsewhere. A link to ‘Sky religion’ ] As ‘explained’ by such authors as G. Scholem or Dion Fortune.

For a more ‘earthy’ representation of the same; if only for this reader; is a publication by Mr William Gray. ’ The ladder of lights’. Only this time in reverse order, i.e., South-north. Only to be read when a good understanding has been achieved. There are however...’nuggets of information’...to be found should curiosity get the better of the predicted ‘head scratch’. If so...wear a hat.

Analogy of same; but now from its ''opposite end'',i.e.,from an unknown [unconscious?] aspect and/or 'angle'..."His sons illness also seemed to be affecting Paul. What if Paul became unwell too, who would be there for his son? Each word i wrote seemed feebler than the last and then i realised, despite all the nuggets of perceived wisdom, i was powerless..." [Extract from the book by Q. S. Lam].

''Unknown'' - in the sense that the above author has no connection on any level, concerning this subject and yet those universal archetypes [keys?] are used [unconsciously] - constantly; throughout; within her own internal struggles. Question. Coincidence or a meaningful one? Others elsewhere to access one way or the other, i.e.,.

"I would like to imagine my brain as a majestic cathedral with stained glass windows. Muli-coloured rays of light streaming through, painting a blue haven in which to create alchemy with my fingers, stirring up boundless energy from within, revitalizing my tired bones, letting me soar with my children, taking them to another place that is magical and safe." [Q. S. Lam].

"In this small circle of light, surrounded by darkness, we are, as Plato says, ''strange prisoners'' and psychology and esotericism both seek the keys to our escape and restoration." [Extract from the book 'The Magister'].

A {working?} example: Quote by Rick Lagina of Oak Island fame - looking through a multitude of papers left by an Ex. president of the U.S.A. {F.D.R.} - hoping to find clues as to the purpose {intent?} of its construction: "Sifting through volumes of information to get one little treasure." {Series 4. Episode 11].

The main reason why Mr Gray has been mentioned however is very similar; but now in reverse; as to the example given of Mr I-De-Loyola. If only for this reader. A very plain; no nonsense chap; he explains all in plain English; for this reader at least; even though he had a penchant/fetish for wearing all the available attire. Proud no doubt of his chosen interest.

His life/works depicted in the book ‘The Old Sod’. By A. Richardson. Gives the reader a good idea of such an individuals ‘beliefs’... That they can access what is loosely termed as ‘altered states of awareness’ in order to gain more information about those possible transitions and their ‘environments’. [‘Book Four’. By A. Crowley ]. And/or...

knot

Knotted?

A {working?} example: "The first step along this path is to notice that we live in 'different states of consciousness'. This is not as obvious as it sounds. I am not here referring to moments of happiness in contrast to times of depression, but to a 'state of being' that puts us in touch with a deeper reality. Perhaps you have had moments of experiencing such a liberation that comes from these higher states {eureka moment?} of being. Moments of great joy, or gratitude for being alive, or while standing before a scene of beauty. Moments when our awareness is lifted beyond the knots of normal living...These are higher states of consciousness that opens onto new horizons of understanding and wisdom." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way']. Try ''knots'' and/or ''horizon'' etc. to see same principles in a broader {horizon?} context, i.e.,within the subject material AS A WHOLE _ "since the written word came into common use."

Try ''knot'' for {as?} an example {experience?} of that ''higher state of being''.

Abstract definition of same {principle?} - as seen from a different perspective {i.e.,'angle'}: "When we enter the underworld we are not exploring our separated selves or our subconscious, but moving our spirit or true core and source of energy and consciousness into the planetary mind"........"Thus we gain access to those regions defined as unconscious by modern psychology but these are both thresholds and matrices for further changes of awareness and the effects of the underworld initiation do not come exclusively from either an individual or a collective unconscious. To put this another way, the energies liberated by earth light ['divine' bit link] resonate through the so called unconscious, which can give them either individual of collective pattern and form."[i.e.,Archetypes]. Chapter three 'Power Within the Land'. R. J. Stewart. [Words in brackets, this readers].

Understanding this subjects overall framework gives an understanding to those 'implications'. More importantly that same understanding that can be got from objectivity and research, gives the same result.

And/or..." A fundamental approach here is to consider these as a spectrum of perspectives, each useful at a particular step, until a new vantage point {key} is gained and a new perspective gives a view to new horizons." [Extract from the book 'The Magister' ].

Question. Breathing easier?

A working example {i.e.,a work in progress}..."Typical lodge meetings consist of enacting a series of short plays that contain a moral message and encourage personal insight and understanding. All of this is contained in a complicated story involving the building of Solomon's Temple...I soon came to realize that there was a considerable difference between my understanding, based on what i had been taught at school and through religious teachings, and what had apparently happened based on historical records. In particular, it is what has been left out, deliberately or otherwise, that distorts the imagery. It is what we are not told that colours our perceptions. When one is aware of the intervening facts, a new angle {key} on events is presented." Try ''method''.

'Angle' in relation to..."At the commencement of the Masonic ceremonies, it is pointed out that Freemasonry is a 'peculiar system of morality, veiled in allegory'. I thought i knew what an allegory was, but i still looked up the word in an Oxford Dictionary to ensure i had a correct interpretation. The answer stated was: ''narrative describing one subject under the guise of another''. " [From the book by K. Gest].

Analogy:..."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]. Follow the title to see if you agree or disagree.

"The 'ordinary man' must make a spiritual start somewhere, sometime. The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Lao-tze observed."

Footstool?

Unlike shamanism they focus on certain words {archetypes?} and concepts [i.e.,'ritual' stuff] in order to 'gain access'{'experience'?} to learn more {lucid dreaming?}. Other books are by Gareth Knight and especially ‘The western way’. By C. and J. Matthews. Plenty of ‘nuggets’ to be found. Most important of all...easy on the mind. No headgear required...but don’t forget that pinch of salt.

Shamans access those same states but by way of certain ‘beverages’, i.e., Ribena plus supplements. Metaphorically speaking of course. Hopefully no Ribena addicts will take it literally. Its part of their culture. What they were taught from birth. Both in their own way are specialist sub-divisions of the overall subject. Both supposedly have different ways of gaining access to those ‘altered states’, [what the author of 'The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life', calls "different levels of consciousness". First chapter]. Where more information can be ‘found’ {assessed?}.

What is commonly known as the ‘Akashic [or Akasha] records’. Or 'Cayces hall of records'. Symbolic, of a potential...to learn something further. Within what is loosely termed as the ‘etheric’ and/or ‘astral’ levels. [ ‘Astral doorways’. By J.Brennan ]. Or 'Initiation into Hermetics' by F. Bardon]. A good book that explains both those concepts in practical terms, 'The Zelator'. Mentioned within.

All enlarged elsewhere - find them to understand them - BEFORE those first impressions ''tell one'' {dictate?} - something else.

"Likewise, a union of the opposite sides of our brains - a harmonious fusion of the left, or Logos side, with the right, or Eros side, is an ideal psychological state ['sacred marriage' and/or 'divine couple' link]. And to enter into a shamanic state/trance, shamans too depend on a harmonious union of the two hemispheres of the brain, relying on drugs, repetitive drumming, or some other repetitive stimulus to lull the left side of the brain into a relaxed state, which allows 'Logos' to combine with 'Eros', and which in turn allows the shaman to enter an altered state of consciousness." [Quote [in part] from Amazon customer in relation to the book 'The Grail: Relic of an Ancient Religion']. Emphasis, this readers.

The paragraph can be defined as the difference between the ''slow but sure way'' [i.e., study] and the short cut way.

"As steps in man's awakening..."

"...Yet all details could be clearly seen in the 'green' and faintly 'orange' lights that cast the 'purple' shadows of the sphere of Yesod where rules the Lord of the Moon who is king of this land of life. He who is first born of the Great Mother Dana, the ruler of the non-human peoples [i.e., archetypes] of the Etheric and Astral planes of consciousness." Recall what 'moon' and ''astral'' symbolism represents.

Understanding what all cultures imply, by the word ''divine'', regardless of time or place, in relation to that remaining framework [i.e., A/B/C ], allows the reader to make sense of the above - by study, ie.,the READERS Way; not the 'ritual' one. As it does with the following...

"Anamnesis literally means 'recollection'. It is a term used by Plato and by the later commentators on Plato, called the Neo-Platonists. In our context here, it signifies that the work in which we are engaged is to bring about a state which we already exist within - not a new state which must be created out of nothing. We aspire to a pre-existing state, not a new one." [Extract from the book 'The Magister'. Mentioned elsewhere]. For other 'connections' to evaluate the parts within the whole try ''remembering'' / ''forgetting'' as indicated elsewhere, i.e.,try Part 1.

nhy"The Ancient Wisdom is inscribed in glowing letters in the akasha of the heart: let the disciple plunge within and read its message for himself. He will find that the deathless Consciousness within, though separate from all the organs of the sense, yet shines with their powers. In fact the apparent power of the eye to see depends entirely on the power of vision inherent in that Light which sees through the eye but which the eye does not see; which hears through the ear but which the ear does not hear; which thinks through the mind but which the mind does not think. It is the unseen Seer, the unheard Hearer, the unthought Thinker. Other than 'It,' there is no Seer, no hearer, no thinker. It is the Self, the Inner Ruler {'archon'?} the Deathless." [Chapter 13, 'The Yoga of the Bhagavat Gita' ].

A practical example? {or a work in progress?}..."All that concerned Jesus was that his teachings and his life work should be 'inscribed in heaven' - that is, indelibly, eternally imprinted upon the Akashic Tablets of Life. He never wrote down anything himself. The teachings of the 'Christ' within him were universal, for all time: generalisations on such a cosmic scale that they can be applied anywhere, in any period of earth's history."

spiral

Ash Dome. N/W Wales. 30 foot circle, 22 Ash trees. Spiral in shape. Question. What does the Ash - represent - if only within this subject. Try 'The Lost Books of Merlyn' by D. Monroe to see it from the 'pagan' point of view {mindset?}.

Synchronistic and/or ''Karma'' example [if only for this reader] - in reference to the creation by Q. S. Lam - what she defines as 'A Soul on a Scroll' - a thirty foot one...."Started the work in 2007, i completed a little every day or when i could. I recall writing the first line of the scroll and groaning at the prospect of beginning the journey, knowing it was going to be a feat of endurance. By the end [2012], my hand was aching and swollen. There was an addictive quality to working on the scroll plunging you into a meditative state and being transported to other 'worlds'."

"Astral plane was an old term for the realm of the visual imagination." [Chapter one, 'Astral Doorways' by J. H. Brennan]. Question 'shadow' or 'anima/s' aspect?

''visual imagination'' relative to an objective exercise - as opposed to a fantasy one. Anything?

"....Gradually, however, the word became identified with Karma or desire, and so was used for the plane of emotional reaction." [Same book].

'The Man Who Planted Trees' - animated short film - written by Jean Giono.

Trees in relation to valleys. Provence relative to the Alps. South / North. A shepherd beginning a 'story' in 19-thirteen. Coincidence or a meaningful one? Try ''mona Lisa'' for a similar 'view'.

wheelA different perspective {synchronistic?}..."Hovenweep is vast. I moved back and forth over the land, searching and ''feeling'' for the right place for this most important ceremony to be located. Finally, as i walked over a certain area, all the mountains and the ancient nearby Anasazi canyon seemed to come into alignment. Just off to the south, only a few feet away, was an Anasazi ruin that commanded primal importance long ago because it was on the highest point. I knew in my heart that this was the right place. As i looked around, a large rock ''spoke to me'' to be the central stone, and i placed it on the ground in what would become the very center of the medicine wheel. Four more living stones were found to mark the four directions. With this basic setup, the wheel ended up being about thirty-five feet in diameter..." ['Serpent of Light Beyond 2012'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Question. Whats the difference between the 'X' and the cross symbol. The author of the above book defines it by way of ''a gift in understanding''. Enlarged elsewhere. Clue. Link to the song - 'Amazing Grace'

"Then Devlin spoke, and what he said gave goosebumps to those who were near enough to hear him. For he said that the medicine wheel {with his index finger he drew an imaginary circle on his t-shirt} has a cross in it {north-south and east-west}. And the problem was that some people were doing ceremony ''almost right.'' But instead of having energy in the form of a cross, he said, they had it in the form of an 'X'. He indicated the imaginary X inside the imaginary medicine wheel on his shirt and said,''The X leads to the dark side.'' {And/or 'shadow' aspect?}. This was the exact same image given in my vision on the bus before we sang the Anasazi children on their way to freedom ['grace' link}.'' Emphasis, this readers.

The {story?} has to be read to understand the 'predicament' of the Anasazi children and parents in understanding why 'grace' {i.e.,a true intent of mind; intent of purpose etc i.e.,by way of - as ONE example - as in the above example ''a ritual ceremony''} has, in relation, to the norm. Try ''bosom'' for its universal link.

Analogy. Different time - different place: "With the 19th century resurgence of interest in Celtic mythology, the Tor became associated with Gwyn ap Nudd, the first Lord of the Otherworld (Annwn). The Tor came to be represented as an entrance to Annwn or to Avalon. The Tor is supposedly a gateway into "The Land Of The Dead (Avalon)." Enlarged elsewhere.

S/W = ''dark side'' ?

hyg

It was the 'wall' that made him. Will it be the wall that breaks him?

A change of pace {analogy?}..."Moses made such a wall for himself when he said to the Israelites: 'Watch yourselfs, so that you do not try to follow them after they have been destroyed before you' {Deut. 12:30. LXX}. For if someone does not watch his mind attentively, he will find that, after he has cut down the passions, the images of past fantasies begin to emerge again like young shoots. If he constantly allows these images to force there way into his intellect and does not bar their entry {'flaming swords' at the 'boundaries' of Eden?} - the passions will once more establish themselves within him; despite his previous victory, he will have to struggle against them again. For, after being tamed and taught to graze like cattle, the passions can become savage once more through our negligence and regain the ferocity of wild beasts. It is to prevent this that Scripture says: 'Do not try to follow them after they have been destroyed before you'; that is, we must not allow our soul to form the habit of taking pleasure in fantasies of this kind, and so relapse into its previous condition." ['The Philokalia' / translated by G.E.H. Palmer etc]. Try ''cattle'' to broaden ones view {horizon?}.

Understanding ''cattle'' symbolism gives further clues to such places as Napta Playa, i.e., from a S/W position {and/or 'start' point?}.

''...made such a wall for himself..." = the 'HA HA' lawn? Landscape equivalent? Recall one of the meanings behind the name Apollo.

"Psychology and esotericism set out to explore the darkness outside of our knowledge, whether it be dwelling in the 'unconscious' or the 'astral', the mundus imaginalis, {Corbin} or the dark side {i.e.,shadow self?} of the Tree of Life {anima?}." [Extract from the book 'The Magister'. Emphasis, this readers].

"...5 and 7, the sacred numbers; they rest in the 12...for 12 was a very large circle of meanings and activities. It can be seen first of all as the product of 3 x 4, which makes it a combination in which both the material and spiritual are contained, and secondly as the sum of the two meaningful numbers 5 and 7; the sacred numbers: They rest in the 12 - the closed circle..."

"Thirty is a number connected with order and justice. In ancient Rome, a man had to reach the age of thirty to become a Tribune; and according to Biblical traditions, both Moses and Jesus began their public preaching [teaching?] at that age. The Old Testament book of Judges..." [Both 'pieces' of information from 'Mystery of Numbers'. Parenthesis, this readers. Mentioned elsewhere].

"Some heads are graced by golden crowns. Golden crowns and jewelled diadems detract from the beautiful tresses of other heads because the tresses of beauties are traps of love, which is the heart's throne. A golden crown is a lifeless thing; the wearer is the heart's beloved." 'Signs of the Unseen' / Jalaluddin Rumi]. 'Thirty' being the 'sign' spoken about.

Analogy: "...above the rose, sealing the vessel,[i.e.,the alchemists ''vessel''] which is a ''soul with no leak at the seams,'' is a crown. The crown - which is a triple crown - signifies Kether, the top of the tree. It bears a single pearl in its apex; 'the pearl of great price'...." Enlarged elsewhere. Try ''leak''.

Quote taken from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'. Mentioned elsewhere].

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

nhyREFRESHER: ''The word 'mystery' comes from the Greek 'myein', to keep silent....The real secret about the mysteries is that they cannot be communicated by one being {'teacher'?} to another: the mystery guardian can only give guidelines and keys to knowledge, not actual knowledge itself, which is revealed to the initiate by personal experience and {or?} revelatory realisation." ['The Wester Way: A Practical Guide to the Western Mystery Tradition'. Chapter 1].

And/or..."You may care to dwell upon the parable which indicates that 'God' is not to be found in the strong wind nor the earthquake, nor in the fire but only within the silence of the still small voice." [From the book 'The Silent Road'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"...In that interior world is the battle ground of the 'gods'. There the gods of love and hate , the daemons of lust, and pride, and anger, the devils of malice, cruelty, and revenge, vanity, envy, and jealousy, may hold high carnival, they may stir up the emotions, and, unless subdued by Reason, they may grow strong enough to dethrone it..."

nnnAstronomical equivalent {in part}: "Ares sister, Strife, 'whose fury never tires...who from being first low in stature, grows till she uprears her head to heaven'...is thought to record a notable aspect of Mars during its orbit around the sun, when it changes in brightness as its distance and position relative to the earth vary. When Mars is moving towards maximum brightness, we propose that the planet is represented by Strife, who in Book 4 is first involved in a minor skirmish that erupts into full scale war. Homer uses Ares to restate his almost obsessional concern with the apparent arc of the celestial sphere, and a sequence in Book 5 shows Mars ascending to the dome of the heavens. The sequence begins when Mars rises in the east and Homer says: 'She {Isis} found fierce Ares waiting on the left of the battle. As Mars rises in the skies, Homer says: 'Ares is now lording it in the field', and the planet reaches its highest point at the meridian when 'As a dark cloud in the sky when it comes on to blow after heat, even so did Diomedes see Ares ascend into the broad heavens'." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Refresher: Eastern equivalent = the purpose behind the epic 'The Bhagavat Gita', i.e.,"The astral plane is also the Kurukshetra, both of humanity as a whole and of the individual human unit. It is the battleground whereon must be found the Waterloo of every aspirant." [Extract taken from the book by A. Bailey]. Link to objectivity over subjectivity. Benefit of - especially in relation to those first impressions.

Egyptian equivalent..."The central and most popular character within ancient Egyptian 'religion' of Asar [Osiris] is Heru [Horus] who is an incarnation of his father Asar. Asar is killed by his brother Set who, out of greed and demonic tendency, craves to be the ruler of Egypt. With the help of Djehuti, the god of wisdom, Aset [Isis], the great mother and Hetheru, his consort - Heru prevails in the battle against Set for the rulership of Egypt. Heru's struggle symbolizes the struggle of every human being to regain rulership of the Higher Self and to subdue the lower self. With this understanding, the land of Egypt, is equivalent to the Kingdom/Queendom concept of Christianity." [Extract from the book by S. Ashby].

Greek equivalent = Cronos. Enlarged elsewhere. Try part 1.

Hebrew equivalent... ''he who wrestles with 'god.' Enlarged elsewhere.

Islam equivalent - ''to submit to god.''

Celt equivalent {of Set}? ''Efnissien the jealous brother, stands in the long tradition of 'disruptive elements at the feast'. Central to the story is the Cauldron of Rebirth..." [Page 38 'Mabon and the Mysteries of Britain']. Try ''cauldron''.

A practical [day to day] example could be [i.e.,'micro']..."To conclude the end of my journey; i assess where i am now? It was a meandering and protracted wrestle to cut the umbilical cord and finally set this book free from the brambles of my brain". [Quote from within the book by Q. S. Lam].

".......the passing through the baptism and entering of the stream." [Quote from within the book by A. Bailey].

Understanding the above gets us closer to a ''mind set''. Closer to understanding such 'unknowns' as: "A great picture could be seen on the hill and a tale had to be made up to account for it. The actual tale has no bearing on the original purpose of the figures, but it does tell us how many were there and give some idea of what they seemed to be doing. This may be the clue to how such stories should be treated. The witches associated with 'springs' will perhaps have been goddesses formerly worshipped there. The 'giant', Hiccafrith, was a visible figure with 'wheel' and club. He is still associated with a particular spot because that is where his rites were enacted. It seems evident that there must have been two giants on Plymouth Hoe, not because it is thought that a new one may have been made, but because Geoffrey of Monmouth tells of 'two contestants' in a wrestling match." [Page 64 'Gogmagog: The Buried Gods' / T. Lethbridge].

rock5A side step: ".........and the meaning of the Greater joy of seeing is when the faithful sees the truth of 'god' with the secret eye of the heart."..."Man is my secret and I am his secret. That secret is a light from the divine light of god. It is the center of the heart, made out of the finest of matter. It is the soul which knows all the secret truths; it is the secret connection between the created one and his Creator. That secret does not love nor lean towards anything other than 'god." [Chapter 17, 'The Secret of Secrets'].

Understanding the 'divine bit' [or 'word'] relative to that framework [i.e.,A -C], gives a ''credibility'' a possible one; to those quotes and paragraphs. Can you see it yet?

The real question however, is why? Why go to all this effort?

"The phrase ''the one who meditates'' relates to the soul. Arjuna, the aspiring disciple, resigns the struggle and hands the weapons and reins of government to Krishna, the soul, and is rewarded at last by understanding and by a vision of the divine form [eureka moment link] which veils the 'Son of God' who is himself."

"Clement of Alexandria elucidates the idea that Jesus is the 'son of god' by explaining: 'The Son is the consciousness of the Father.' The 'Father' is the Mystery...the dazzling darkness of UNconscious Consciousness." [From the book by T. Freke and P. Gandy. Emphasis, this readers].

Analogy of same? "He who begets something which is alive must dive down into the primeval depths in which the forces of 'life' dwell. And when he rises to the surface, there is a gleam of madness in his eyes because in those depths death lives cheek by jowl with life." - "It is obvious that Otto was concerned not with a medical definition of what the Greeks called mania and he and Schelling called ''madness,'' but with a kind of visionary attempt to explain a state in which man's vital powers are enhanced to the utmost, in which consciousness and the unconscious merge as in a breakthrough." [From the book by C. Kerenyi]. Recall the Gilgamesh analogy in Part 1.

Try ''epiphany'' or ''eureka''.

dionysos and panther

Try ''panther'' and/or ''pine cone''

"In certain cult forms, Dionysos { 'youngest' link } is represented as the god who 'arrives'. Otto, who far more than all other students of the subject saw Dionysos as the ''Coming One, the epiphanic god,'' adds that his 'appearance' is far more urgent, far more compelling than that of any other god. Historical reconstruction makes possible a far more concrete statement. Here we shall attempt to define the types and forms of the epiphanies of Dionysos as accurately as possible. The epiphany of a god was known in Greece not only as 'epiphaneia', but also as 'epidemia' - ''arrival in the land''...The unpredictable emergence of a new experience, on which a new religion could be based or by which an old one could be enriched, is the form to which, if it were reliably transmitted, a historian of religions would have to give priority. In the connection of the mythological religions, however, reliable knowledge of this form is seldom available. Such an experience must rather be assumed to have occurred BEFORE the emergence of the traditional religion and mythology, before they began, and constitute their foundation." [From the book by C. Kerenyi. All emphasis, this readers]. Think about it, in relation to the books written by W. Burkert and M. Eliade. See Part 1.

Zeus {island/cave and/or 'foundation'?} in relation to Dionysos.

'Cave' in relation to..."The Dionysos year is the year of the vineyards and wine cellars. Its events take place on the surface {'horizon' link?} of the earth." [Same book]. Therefore S/W - S/E?

Question. One stage further - relative to an 'understanding' ?

Question 2. Understanding of what?

Defining that 'understanding' gives clues as to Alexanders possible final resting place.

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

"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]. Try ''Lily''.

"The truth is that man gets the fruit of his actions from 'above', and the fruits correspond to the nature of his actions." [Part one, 'Play of Consciousness'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"Nicholas Tesla, recently described by a historian of science as ''the ultimate visionary crank,'' was a Serbian Croat who became a naturalized American. There he patented some seven hundred inventions including fluorescent lights and the Tesla coil that generates an alternating current. Like Newtons most important breakthroughs, this last one arose out of his belief in an etheric dimension between the mental and physical planes." ['Chapter 23, 'The Secret History of the World']. Question. What exactly is/ are...''altered states''. Find within.

"Astral plane was an old term for the realm of the visual imagination." [Chapter one, 'Astral Doorways' by J. H. Brennan]. Question 'shadow' or 'anima/s' aspect?

"....Gradually, however, the word became identified with Karma or desire, and so was used for the plane of emotional reaction." [Same book].

Understanding the 'divine bit' [i.e.,what it implies] - relative to the remaining 'framework' - makes sense of the above.

trident

'TRI' = 'triple' analogy. 'DENT' = 'teeth' link. Coincidence or a meaningful one? Something to get ones teeth into?

Remember objectivity. It has a certain logic to it but only when you understand that full framework. It also links in; at least for this reader; with J.Naydlers in depth work. Mentioned elsewhere. Or for a more possible practical example...in order to attempt to understand the same...the ‘dentist’ example given above in relation to Mr Basil Spences ’experience’. Together with Mr Colin Wilsons example of the same, [strangely, again at the dentists. Alien contacts? Or synchronistic link to ''teeth'' symbolism?], In his ’Introduction to the new edition’, [ later part of ] in the book.. ’Beyond the occult’. Together with the most up-to-date example of same.

teeth1

Hebrew Shin. Question. Inverted 'M' ? 'Lower' in relation to 'higher' ? As a means to something? TRY ''M''. Question 2. Agree or disagree?

Another possible example...''I asked my nine year old lad to go find some fossils in the grove of the valley. Within a minute he found a fossil next to a lightening struck tree. As i approached i saw a hominoid clavical [he also noted other bones that he had a PHD on]... As i came closer i put my hand on the wall and then two hominoid teeth fell into my hand''. In relation to the Malopa find in 2008 by Lee Berger [and son]. Same man also identified recent finds in nearby location called ''The Rising Star Cave System''[South Africa] -in 2013- eventually called Homo Naedi [star]. N.B. Don't forget those first impressions - follow through with a second then a third, i.e...

"In 1882 an anonymous book named OAHSPE, A Kosman Bible, was published in New York. It was subsequently revealed in a letter to the editor of 'The Banner of Light'; a Boston periodical; that its author was a dentist named Dr. John Ballou Newbrough and that the book had been written, mostly in the dark, through the agency of automatic writing. Newbrough claimed indeed that the book was written not by himself but through 'some other intelligence' using him as a vehicle. His interest in spiritualism was long standing. When he was a boy his father felt obliged to discourage his clairvoyant leanings...Later on Newbrough discovered that when he sat in circles at seances and calmed his mind, his hands would 'fly off into tantrums' producing messages reading in all directions. So it was that he became interested in researching similar 'spiritual' incidents. After examining over 200 cases, he became convinced that such phenomena was 'angelic' in nature and he himself began to 'grave for the light of heaven'. By this he meant that he wished to become the vehicle for something spiritually profound, rather than mere scribblings and doodles." [Taken from the book by Drury and Skinner]. Similar to the experience of the author 'Mind to Mind'? Found elsewhere.

Question. Actual 'individual' or archetype? Question 2. Anima or shadow aspect? Question 3. If so, one of those 'experiences' could be classed as top/down; the other bottom/up relative to a learning curve. Which and why?

A {working?} example: "At one of the following lectures G. returned to the question of consciousness: 'Neither the psychical nor the physical functions of man can be understood,' he said, 'unless the fact has been grasped that they can both work in different states of consciousness. In all there are 'four' states of consciousness possible to man...The two 'higher' states are inaccessible to him, and although he may have flashes of these states, he is unable to understand them and he judges them from the point of view of those states in which it is usual for him to be'." ['In Search of the Miraculous'. Emphasis/italics, this readers]. Try ''four''.

'Waters of the Gap'.

Follow the title of the book to 'see' it in its broader {i.e.,inclusive of those higher two?} 'environment'.

As an example: ''Point of view'' in relation to: "But in a state of self consciousness a man can have flashes of objective consciousness and remember them." Same book.

That link to Plato's 'forms' . Represented [in part] in the night sky within those zodiac signs. Symbolic of those different aspects of the individual. Now only twelve. Using 'twelve' with a purpose in mind. All with a destination in mind - by way of - that ''inner'' one. The 'micro' within the 'macro'. Represented by those 'patterns' in the night sky, within that very large cycle. Known in ancient days as the ''Great year.'' All those different aspects within the 'whole.' Each pattern containing both positive and negative distinctions {'conjunction'?}. The Kabbala uses '72' a direct link [number symbolism] to the modern equivalent of what was known as the ''Great Year'' - The Precession of the Equinoxes - [Use 'box' to understand why]. The ''middle way'' being its main symbolic intention. The ''outer'' by way of that ''inner'' one. Representation of.

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

137 3Seen from a different perspective: "So for our ancestors the connection to the night sky would have been incredibly intimate. They looked to the skies to understand their place in creation. And the movement of the stars told them one thing - they were at the center of the universe. Up there is Polaris {North/Pole star}. Its almost aligned exactly with the earths spin axis. As the earth rotates everything moves around that one point. So it looks for ALL THE WORLD as IF the earth is the center of the universe....And that is of course what the ancients believed in for thousands of years - and why not - because its obvious - its wrong. To understand the earths real position in the solar system..." ['Wonders of the Solar System: Order out of Chaos' / B. Cox].

137 4To TRULY understand what our ancestors in the past and descendants of the present are attempting to define firstly within themselves and then to others - 'SEE' something other than the obvious, i.e.,as one example 'Solar' in relation to 'lunar' - left eye / right eye in relation to the eyes of Horus in order to 'define' something - that inner {center?} of something.

Now try ''geocentric''.

A working example: {One example}: "Caer Arianrhod is the circumpolar stars, to which souls withdraw between incarnations thus she is identified as a goddess of reincarnation. The Mother aspect { 'Hippo'?} of the triple goddess in Wales, her palace was Caer Arianrhod { Aurora Borealis} - or the secret center of each individuals being." [www.thewhitegoddess.co.uk].

REFRESHER: "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."

silence"Every man has a certain feature in his character which is central. It is like an axle round which all his 'false personality' revolves. Every mans personal work must consist in struggling against this chief fault. This explains why there can be no general rules of work and why all systems that attempt to evolve such rules either lead to nothing or cause harm. How can there be general rules? What is useful for one is harmful for another. One man talks to much; he must learn to keep silent. Another man is silent when he aught to talk and he must learn to talk; and so it is always and in everything." [' In Search of the Miraculous'].

And/or: "The Law of Octaves naturally gave rise to many talks in our group, eventually G. warned us against to much theorizing. 'You must understand and feel this law in yourselves', he said, 'only then will you see it outside yourselves'. This of course is true. But the difficulty was not only in this. Merely a ''technical'' understanding of the law of octaves requires a lot of time. And we returned to it continually, sometimes making unexpected discoveries, sometimes again losing what had seemed to us already established. It is now difficult to convey how at different periods now one and now another idea became the center of gravity in our work, attracted the greatest attention, gave rise to most talks. The idea of the law of octaves became it its way a permanent center of gravity. We returned to it on every occasion, we spoke of it and discussed its various aspects at every meeting until we began gradually to think of everything from the point of view of this idea," ['In Search of the Miraculous'. Emphasis, this readers].

"The 'ordinary man' must make a spiritual start somewhere, sometime. The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Lao-tze observed."

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

From a different perspective, i.e.,ritual stuff..."The student of Jungian psychology will by now have recognized that the table {i.e.,King Arthur's round table} is what is known as a 'mandala'. The circle {and/or 'round'} appears to be a universal symbol of wholeness. The grail itself is a symbol of the wholeness for which man is ever searching; its quest is a kind of conferring of the benefits of the Blessed Sacrament in Arthurian and Parsifal legend. Rightly perceived, the Grail romances are a kind of poetic accompaniment to the chivalry of old Christendom of which Logres is an archetype."

''Table'' in relation to..."The preliminaries having been performed, the student concentrates upon the Sephirah Tiphareth as subjectively situated in the region of his heart. From this he 'projects' a 'round table' expanding it from a point of light to a diameter of about six inches {in the imagination}. The table is then furnished. It is of indigo colour and there are twelve golden lines radiating from the centre dividing the table into the twelve segments of the zodiac. In the centre of the table, standing in a circle, and covered by a transparent veil, is a golden chalice, symbol of refreshment. At each place at the table is found a small silver chalice engraved with a zodiac sign. The table having been constructed and furnished is then enlarged in the imagination, big enough to sit at. This is the first exercise of visualization. At this early stage, a golden ray is visualized in the mind's eye, striking down from Tiphareth into the chalice. The subject for meditation, or the problem to be solved, is then brooded upon in the confidence that some esoteric illumination will be received. When the exercise is completed, the table is deliberately diminished, withdrawn into the heart, and a deliberate break made. Notebook and pencil are then set to work." [From the book by A. Duncan].

Remember - before those first impressions dictate something else {especially if you are the 'casual' reader/visitor type} - the common factor between all the above - are ''archetypes'' - regardless of how obtained. But you should by now {unless the 'casual' type} be seeing the relevance and usefulness of the study of the subject as a whole, and not just the parts we are comfortable with. Hence the link to Jung's final sentence...'Perhaps someone knows more, but not me'. Others elsewhere. Try ''mandala'' Part 4.

Side note. The author of 'Galactic Alignment' {enlarged elsewhere} defines those ''centers'' throughout all cultures. - but {if only for this reader} not in its broader view.

daneSomething closer to the 'mark' could be: "With the 4th house we reach one of the most significant, yet generally one of the least understood sections of modern astrological chart...Astrology still draws a great of its symbolism and meanings from a Ptolemaic worldview; thus it still associates the fourth house with the idea that below the surface of the earth there is nothing but solid substance extending forever in depth...A foundation upon which to build on {'houses'}, and from which to 'raise' crops and extract sub-soil wealth. The fourth house has undoubtedly such a meaning; but as we come not only to know with our brains - but also to feel with the whole of our personality {body and psyche} that the earth is a sphere and that we are living on the curved surface of a globe - the fourth house takes on a much deeper meaning. It takes on a global significance, for it represents not only the productive soil, the foundation for the home and earth into which to dig graves - the ''end'' of all things {death/rebirth link} - above all it carries the meaning of the 'center of the globe'...It represents the 'tap-root' of the human organism; that is the point of deepest sustainment and most secure foundation for anything that rises above the ground. It symbolizes the rootedness of all things." [From the book by Dane Rudhyar].

Side note: "Alcyone represents in the sky the Atlantid nymph who became the mother of Hyrieus by Poseidon; but, though now the Light of the Pleiades, its mythological origin was by no means considered the most beautiful. Riccioli wrote the word Alcione and Alcinoe, and some early manuscripts have it Altione.
The early Arabs called it Al Jauz, the Walnut; Al Jauzah or Al Wasat, the Central One; and Al Na'ir, the Bright One; -- all of Al Thurayya. The later Al Achsasi added to this list Thaur al Thurayya, which, literally the Bull of the Pleiades, i.e., the Leading One, probably was a current title in his day...Hipparchos has been supposed to allude to it in his Oxus...the Bright One, and the Brightest One, of the Pleiad. Yet, in the face of these epithets, Ptolemy apparently did not mention it in the Syntaxis; while Baily, in his edition of Hyde's....to the 32d star of Taurus, which is described as stella externa minuta vergiliarum, quae est ad lotus boreale, -- our Atlas.
In Babylonia it determined the 4th ecliptic constellation, Temennu, the Foundation Stone."

Will she be the mother of a boy or girl or just 'dragons'? { edited 26/01/19}.

''In India it was the junction star of the nakshatras Krittika and Rohint, and individual Amba, the Mother; while Hewitt says that in earlier Hindu literature it was Arundhati, wedded to Vashishtha, the chief of the Seven Sages, as her sisters were to the six other Rishis of Ursa Major; and that every newly married couple worshiped them on first entering their future home {temple?} before they worshiped the pole-star. He thinks this is a symbol of the prehistoric union of the northern and southern tribes of India {Scorpion king?}.
We often see the assertion that our title is in no way connected with Alkuon, the Halcyon, that "symbolic or mystical bird, early identified with the Kingfisher," the ornithological Alcedo or Ceryle; so that although the myth of of the Halcyon Days, that "element and temperate time, the nurse of the beautiful Halcyon," - When birds of calm sit brooding on the charmed wave -
is not yet understood, some of Thompson's conjectures as to its stellar aspect will be found interesting. He writes that the story originally referred to some astronomical phenomenon, probably in connexion with the Pleiades, of which constellation Alcyone is the principal star. In what appears to have been the most vigorous period of ancient astronomy (not later than 2000 B.C., but continuing long afterwards to influence legend and nomenclature) the sun rose at the vernal equinox, in conjunction with the Pleiad, in the sign Taurus: the Pleiad is in many languages associated with bird-names ... and I am inclined to take the bird on the bull's back in coins of Eretria, Dicaea, and Thurii for the associated constellation of the Pleiad. ... Suidas definitely asserts that the Pleiades were called Alkuones. At the winter solstice, in the same ancient epoch, the Pleiad culminated at nightfall in mid-heaven. ... This culmination, between redthree and four months after the heliacal rising of the Pleiad in Autumn, was, I conjecture, symbolized as the nesting of the Halcyon. Owing to the antiquity and corruption of the legend, it is imopssible to hazard more than a conjecture; but that the phenomenon was in some form an astronomic one I have no doubt. Madler located in Alcyone the 'center of the universe', but his theory has been shown to be fiction. As is the doubtful assumption by Miss Clerke that 'it shines to its sister stars with eighty three times the lustre of Sirius in terrestrial skies, while its intrinsic brilliancy, as compared with that of the sun is a 1000 times greater {therefore symbolic of something? That inner something?}....It culminates on the 31st of December {i.e., the 'eve' of something}..." [Page 403-405 {The Pleiades} 'Star Names and their Meanings'].

Understanding the above gives more info. on Mr Bauvel's hypothesis within the book 'Imhotep the African' i.e., ''The simultaneous sighting of the rising of Sirius together with a bright star in the circumpolar constellation {in this case, Dubhe in the constellation that we call the Big Dipper and the ancient Egyptians called the Bull's Thigh} - originated at Nabta Playa, and was later taken to the Nile."

The most important word is the highlighted one - REGARDLESS of target. Try same word for a mind set.

REFRESHER: "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."

Here may be found a very ancient feminine symbol in the spider who spins and designs and builds the web of manifestation. The symbol is also found in Rosicrucian diagrams. She represents in other symbolic formulations the Three Sisters, the Fates, spinning, weaving and cutting the thread of life. Whoever becomes a 'victim' of the Spider is, when bound and eaten by her, transformed. She is also the sleeping Lady Venus who, if awakened, gives birth to a 'King'. Whoever has found her secret door is translated from questing querent into guardian of her Mysteries. In other words, a change of function, or a transformation, takes place."

The structure is built on a wide platform on which, placed at regular intervals, were clay bovine heads with real horns. At the rate of 7 to each niche and 4 on the facade,{eleven?} there must have been a total of 346 of them. The bull played a considerable role in the Old Kingdom, and in the Pyramid Texts the king is often called 'bull of the sky'. But because of its horns the bull was also related to the moon. Thus it is tempting to note that the number of bull heads here approximates to that of 12 lunations {354 days} - and, even more closely, to the number 346.6 which Fred Hoyle, in his examination of Stonehenge, relates to the periodical return of eclipses."

It is not illusory, a figment of the imagination or an anthropological invention. It is not 'heaven', hell or analogous to any drug induced vision. The 'Otherworld' is the mythological reality or symbolic continuum within which we can encounter the archetypal energies of the 'gods' and their acts. The Otherworld has its own valid reality which is not accessible to the 'five' senses, though it is appreciable by the 'sixth'. It is often spoken of as a state of consciousness, though this is itself an unclear definition, implying a merely psychological foundation for its existence.

"The basalt sarcophagus of King Menkaura or Merkerinos found in the burial chamber of his pyramid at Giza, was destined to sink in 1938 near the Spanish coast with the ship carrying it to England. Thus there remains only the descriptions and drawings of it made at the time of its discovery. These, however, are of considerable value, since this sarcophagus was a scaled down model of the brick mastabas of the First Dynasty, and thus makes possible a mental reconstruction of the general outlines of these tombs, of which nothing remains but the lower portions. The facades of these UNfired brick buildings were composed of broad vertical piers alternating with recesses {niches?} at the back of which narrow, recessed panels simulate the doors through which the deceased's Ka {the permanent part of the being} might come and go at its pleasure. Above each 'false door' is a simulacrum of a lintel {key stone?} under which a roller is often found, intended for the rolled up mat or blind. Each vertical pier is normally composed of four pilasters separated by three niches, {7?} as in the stone sarcophagus. This motif of stepped recesses caused the four facades of these ancient tombs to be animated with light and shadow...The theme of the facade with stepped recesses plays a very important role during the whole of Pharaonic history. We find it once more imitated in stone in the form of the 'false door stele' for the passage of the Ka, before which offerings were made in the Old Kingdom mortuary chapels. It is painted on the coffins of the Middle Kingdom. It is used as a foundation for the King's 'Horus name' during the entire historical period. The oldest known example - found on the stele of the Serpent King, King Djt of the 1st Dynasty.

continued..."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 {unrolled?}. 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'. On the facade of the First Dynasty tomb of King Kaa {i.e.,last king of 1st Dynasty} are vestiges of paintings identical to those in the tomb of Hesy...

These numerous divinities {polytheism?} are, it is written, the very 'limbs' of god, {i.e.,as one example the multiple 'limbs' of Shiva?}, his attributes or hypostases {'raised arms'?}. Thus by virtue of the 'divine spark' which enlivens him during his existence, the human being participates at every moment in the process of becoming conscious...Of the images chosen from natural phenomena to serve as symbols for these abstract notions, one of the most typical is the daily disappearance of the sun and its rebirth in the morning {Book of Aker link -therefore 'horizontal' link?} Now the sun is one of the two Eyes of the 'supreme being', and the recovery of this Eye represents, for man, the victory over all negative powers and the enrichment of his own consciousness {Maat}, the ultimate goal of existence..."

Side note {Analogy; in relation to ''rolled/UNrolled''}: "Some I's of course, are stronger than others. But it is there own conscious strength; they have been created by the strength of accidents or mechanical external stimuli. Education, imitation, reading, the hypnotism of religion, caste and traditions, or the glamour of new slogans, create very strong I's in mans personality, which dominate whole series of other, weaker, I's. But their strength is the strength of the 'roll's' in the centers. And all I's making up mans personality have the same origin as these 'roll's' ; they are the result of these external influences; and both are set in motion and controlled by fresh external influences. Man has no individuality. He has no single big I. Man is divided into a multiplicity of small I's...This explains why people so often make decisions and so seldom carry them out...Thus in one teaching, man is compared to a 'house' in which there is a multitude of servants but no master and no steward. The 'servants' have all forgotten their duties; no one wants to do what he aught; everyone tries to be 'master'...The comparison of a man to a house awaiting the arrival of the master is frequently used in Eastern teachings which have preserved traces of ancient knowledge, and, as we know, the subject appears in various forms in the Gospels."

continued..."The King is the 'son of Re'. As king of the north and south, master of the two crowns {Horus - Seth} - he is felt to have mastery over antagonistic natural forces, and be capable of assuring cosmic order. The royal tombs are of an 'anthropocosmic' character. At Thebes, for example the burial chambers {of some} are painted as though a huge papyrus were UNrolled around the walls on which is inscribed the Book of What is in the Dwat. This 'book' tells the nightly journey of Re - through the regions of the twelve hours of the night, each of which has a 'gate' 'guardians' and 'pilots'...Hour after hour, phase after phase, whether imagined by the scarab's gestation or by the human metabolism, the metamorphosis of the densest matter, into the most volatile and subtle energy is accomplished - the return, now conscious - to the origin. [All above extracts from the book 'Egyptian Mysteries'. Emphasis - this readers].

Rolled/UNrolled...Fired/UNfired...East/West/South/North...represented in one form or another with analogies to 'light' and 'dark', {''stepped recesses''} - i.e., with the Book by ...'Day'.. and/or the one by 'night' {i.e.,'in the Dwat'}. ALL as a MEANS to an understanding - from the dawn of human kind. Question. Conspiracy obsessives?

Analogy..."There is a mosque whose foundation was laid from the first day on piety; it is more worthy of thy standing forth therein. Which then is best? - he that layeth his foundation on piety to God and his good pleasure? - or he that layeth his foundation on an undermined sand cliff ready to crumble to pieces?" [Quran 9:108/109].

In answer to that question, you could say: maybe these authors who do write about this subject material are obsessive - if only in the sense of their own point of view - after all nothing 'concrete' has yet been proven by it. At the end of the day {or night} - it seems nothing more than opinions - personal ones? It seems nothing more than ''abstract'' stuff - passed around - and regurgitated {'jackal'?} each generation by different authors.

So the {inner?} question to that answer could be - who are these authors who constantly spend the time and effort to write about it ,i.e.,what type of persons are they? Do they all belong to a certain 'family' or tribe or profession or religion or church or monastery or club or... etc, etc,. In other words using the above {as one example only} - who is Lucie Lamy?

Alongside other evidence of the social and religious organisation of the period, the names of the 1st Dynasty kings were enshrined in a medical treatise and in two of the formulae of the Book of Coming Forth into Day, of which this is one: 'This formula has been found in the foundations by a chief mason {Hiram Abiff link?} in the time of his Majesty of Upper and Lower Egypt, Semti the Justified. It was a secret guide which had never been seen nor glimpsed. The recitation of Chapter 64 of this Book enabled the deceased to come and go at his pleasure and assured immortality to his soul, on condition that it be read when one was pure and spotless."

The type of bronze sculpture that seem to appear almost overnight. Nothing like it had be seen before the 1st emperor." ['Greatest Tomb on Earth: Secrets on Ancient China' / BBC / 2016}.

The program indicates a connection between East and West 1000 years earlier than today's academics thought possible. Can you see other 'connections' that the narrators have not even considered? Others enlarged - from same program - elsewhere, i.e.,a bronze chariot was also discovered. Try ''chariot''.

A change of pace...The author of the 'Source Field Investigations,' [chapters 6 and 19] attempts to understand the same {i.e.,''esotericism'' in general} within his own field of interest, but because this subject has not been added to the 'equation' a full understanding cannot be the result. As proven by the authors understanding within the books, Zoroastrianism chapter. His main references, being from a book that only explain it in its historical context. Exoteric equivalent, {similar to the authors of the 'Master Game'. Explained elsewhere}. External as opposed to that inner one. Hence the reason he concludes - that their ancient home must have been in the Arctic, ''because of the weather patterns mentioned in the Vedas.'' 'Arctic conditions,' within this subject is indicative of a learning process [potential of, i.e.,once learnt]. Cold in relation to warm. 'Lower' in relation to 'higher.' South in relation to North. {or vice versa, depending on the 'intention' of author}. Atlantic {Nova Scotia link} - relative to the Mediterranean. Boundaries that have to be 'investigated' for an understanding to take place.

'The World Turned Inside Out: Henry Corbin and Islamic Mysticism' by T. Cheetham.

The author of 'Gobekli -tepe' also 'falls {key} into the same trap' i.e.,"That these examples of canine cosmic tricksters, manifesting in the sky's as planet killers such as comets and asteroids, come from Europe and not Anatolia need not concern us, for similar cosmological themes exist in the sky lore much closer to Gobekli -tepe. The Bundahishn, a sacred text of Zoroastrianism, a 'religious' doctrine that once thrived in Iran, India, and Armenia, contains its own graphic account of a Ragnarok-style scenario, which includes the following somewhat enigmatic lines: 'As Gokihar falls in the celestial sphere from a moon-beam on to earth, the distress of the earth becomes such like as that of a sheep when a wolf falls upon it'. Gokihar is generally translated as 'meteor', that is, an incoming comet fragment, asteroid, or bolide of some sort, while the name itself has been interpreted as meaning 'wolf progeny'. The double allusion in this statement to the wolf is significant, and one can envisage, and even feel, the force of the assumed impact, here likened to the manner that a sheep's legs bend and collapse when pounced on by a wolf. That Gokihar's appearance heralds some kind of apocalyptic event seems confirmed in the verse that follows: 'Afterward, the fire and halo melt the metal of {the archangel} Shatvair, in the hills and mountains, and it {the molten metal} remains on this earth like a river.' If the impact of a comet fragment or asteroid is implied, then the presence afterward of firestorms and rivers of molten 'metal' caused by the eruption of volcanoes would be inevitable." [From the book by A. Collins. Emphasis, this readers]. Try ''metal/mettle'' and/or ''wolf'' to 'see' what such authors cannot.

The word 'Atlantis' also mentioned, {next page of same book, i.e.,by D. Wilcock} as are the words ''apocalyptic quality'' in relation to ''Zoroastrians concepts about the end of the age,'' {next page on}. Both only understood in that 'external' sense. The word 'Atlantis' indicative of water and copper,{red ochre link. Symbolic of}. That link to the Great Pyramid, i.e.,"Strangely, the Great Pyramid is also located at the exact center of the earths land mass, the one true axis mundi. Its East - West axis sits precisely on the longest land parallel, covering the greatest amount of land and the least amount of water on earth.....'' [Chapter seven, D. Wilcock book].

'Red' indicative of the shadow/negative aspect, [explained within], of which the 'smallest' of the three pyramids has more of it 'externally' than the other two. The two 'others' more limestone than red granite. Limestone; being 'lighter', both in structure and texture: used as a representation of that 'internal awareness'; as most know within this subject. Positive relative to negative. Known in relation to unknown. Which again if correct, gives a possible indication as the order of each 'build'.

Atlantis story indicative of same. But now in relation to what 'water' represents, within this subject. Both salt and fresh. Explained elsewhere. As is the meaning of the word ''apocalyptic,'' if only in relation to this subject.

Understanding this subject {as a 'whole'} gives an answer to the true ''mindset of the peoples'' - beyond a comet explosion...

"Most likely a disintegrating comet was the culprit, although we cannot discount other possibilities, such as an asteroid or meteor impact, or a close supernova event. What IS important, however, is its impact on the mind set of the peoples existing in the Euphrates Basin at the termination of the Paleolithic age, for there is compelling evidence that a memory of this devastating cataclysm lingered on in the minds of the Gobekli tepe builders themselves." [From the book by A. Collins].

Something did indeed linger on in those minds - and still does - that universal one.
