''If you have not ploughed with my heifer, you would not find out my riddle.'' [Judges 14:18 in relation to Samson's riddle]. Think on it relative to what the 'mill ' represents. Together with the remaining parts of that same riddle. Found within. Clue 'A churning in relation to a grinding'.

The Symbolism of which is represented by ‘Grooves’, [key]. Especially those in the ‘Grand Gallery’. Or in the ‘Kings’ chamber’, i.e., Higher self, in the positive sense. Common parlance... ‘To plough ones furrow’. Represented by the... ‘Great /lessor Bear’ constellation.

Question. Which came first; the naming of the constellations or this 'subject'.

"Will the wild ox consent to serve you. Or will he spend the night at your manger?" Job.39:9. ['Book of Job' / Melissa Lees].

'Wild' in relation to 'domesticated'...as a means?

Its old name = Septentriones. ‘Seven ploughing oxen’. [See also 'New View Over Atlantis'. Chapters one/two, in relation to 'Notch' symbolism], i.e.,"and on a bank leading up to a mountain ridge, or down to a ford, the track cut deep so as to form a guiding notch...." OR " in a mountain pass the road cut deeply at the highest place straight through the ridge, to show as a notch afar off." [Emphasis...this readers]. That link to 'Hook' symbolism.

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

"Ships have long been said to plough the sea, and ploughs to sail the earth. In a variant of the same ancient metaphor the modern French faucher le grand pre for sailing is literally to reap, or to mow, the big field; the reapers too leave a wake behind them. The German lexicographer Max Miller, last century, related 'oar' to a root by which it means 'as it were the plough-share of the water'; he added that the English word plough, the Slavonic ploug, has been identified with the Sanskrit plava...and with the Greek ploion = ship." [Taken from chapter 4, entitled ''Ploughing the Sea'' from the book 'The Book of Babel: Words and the Way We See Things' by N. Lewis].

Flat top ? 'East-west'? 90 degrees? Queen of the 'horizon'?

Understanding the above, gives clues as to the information within Mr Bauval and co. book 'Black Genesis', an elongated hill in the S/W corner of the Egyptian desert..."a flattened top with a very noticeable depression or notch in the middle" what the author calls ' Horizon Hill ', and that link to the 'Horizon' hieroglyph, which as he says "was used to denote 'horizon' or, more specifically, the Place of the Sunrise." [Page 142, same book].

Side note: Apply the above to define the following {mind set?}: "There are many pictures of men brandishing spears, which may only represent one figure drawn on many occasions. There are oxen yoked to ploughs, war chariots and wagons, men blowing {'drinking'?} curved horns and people dancing or walking in procession. These can never be completely identified, but the aim is clear. They are part of a seasonal religious ceremony. In some cases animal figures are thought to represent the beasts offered to special gods at special sacrifices {'feast of fools'?} - while the ashes of great fires {death/rebirth?}, below the rocks on which the pictures are engraved, probably indicate the sites of ritual feasts, in the Homeric manner....To a rather later period belong pictures of axes, swords, wheels and sun discs...." [Page 85 'GogMagog'].

aaContinued: "Caroline, you may not be aware of this, but your name begins with the letter associated with the balance of the number three. Balance is a grace of spirit {'male' or 'female'?}. This is why the horizon stone played such an important part in the Egyptian mysteries. The hieroglyph depicts the meeting of Sun and Earth...This symbol is the only hieroglyphic on the outer wall of the Great Pyramid...The name given to the pyramid was 'Akhet Khufu', which meant ''horizon of Khufu'' - this later term was misunderstood by later Egyptologists, who turned it into the name Cheops. This pregnant symbol is {also?} located above the passageway which pierces into the rock foundations of the vast structure. As a symbol, it survived into modern times - as the symbol for Libra, the cosmic balance, which now consists of three elements...When he had drawn the sigil, he ran the back of his pencil {'lead' link} through the curvature {'arc' link} of space between the solar disc and the horizon of earth...'The invisible {unknown quantity?} space is just as important as the Sun and Earth. Do you see how even the most simple-seeming of the arcane symbols are steeped in hermetic antiquity?' ['The Zelator'. Italics/parenthesis, this readers].

Follow the title of the book to see it from its broader {horizon?} - point of view. That personal inner one.

And/or: ''The glyph for Libra originally represented a yoke, which I thought was fascinating, in the light of Saturn's exaltation there. I always used to think of the symbol as representing a 'bump in the road', so perhaps Libra brings out the best of Saturn when 'the bumps in the road' of relationship happen." [Page 76 'Saturn, Chiron and the Centaurs']. Try ''yoke''.

And/or: "In Leo and Virgo lay now the long forgotten asterism Fahne, of which Ideler wrote: 'The Flag is a constellation of the heavens, one part in Leo, one part in Virgo. Has many stars. On the iron {the arrowhead of the staff} in front one; on the flag two; on every fold of the flag, one...Brown repeats a Euphratean inscription: 'The constellation of the 'Yoke' - 'like a flag floated' - although he claims no connection here, and associates the Yoke with Capricorn." [Page 255 'Star Names and Their Meaning'].
Interpret those keys to 'see' / connect {yoke?} something further - in relation to the Giza complex. And/or Homers Secret Illiad.

Try ''Libra'' to see if you agree/disagree.

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

Side not: Speculation 'rules the roost' in Ancient Aliens: ''The Power of Three'' {Series 5, episode 14}. Understand this subject to get as close as one can to answer all those convoluted questions and answers - if only in relation to ''three''.

Side note: "It is impossible to study any single system of 'worship' throughout the world without being struck by the peculiar persistence of the triple number in regard to divinity; whether as a group of deities, a triformed or 3-headed god, a mysterious trinity, a deity of three powers, or a family relationship of 3 persons such as Father, Mother and Son...." [Page 16 'Occult Fundamentals and Spiritual Unfoldment. Vol 1].

Continued: Abu Ruash also has that same 'formation', of which a similar symbol can be found above the North entrance of none other than the Great Pyramid. The common factor between all being Mr Djedefre, or more importantly, before those first impressions take hold...what Djedefre represents, i.e.,elder relative to younger. Djedefre in relation to Menkaure. North relative to South. The 'southern' end of which encompassed that 'offset' pyramid. The beginning or start of something.

Question. ''Compass'' in relation to 'encompass' / 'compassion'?

seti 1As also mentioned in that same well researched book [if only from the standard [exoteric] point of view, i.e.,without including this subject].... it was the following Dynasty, i.e.,5th...that the 'Horizon' symbol became ingrained. Which gives clues as to Mr Djedefres [and therefore by implication, his families], true status, if only within an understanding of something. Recall what Djedefre represents. That understanding was finally 'realized' in the 5th.

'A grain of wisdom'.

Hence the link to the first 'religious' texts ever found anywhere. The Pyramid texts. What Mr Bauval refers to as the 'Horizon' hieroglyph, others call the 'Son of'. But not yet with that 'full' understanding, i.e.,'heart' or 'bosom' link. ['lower'/ 'higher' link]. Hence the link to the 'sun' in the middle of those two 'points', regardless of whether they be 'mountains' or 'pillars'. Recall what the 'sun' represents, [besides the obvious]. Think about it, relative to what other symbol was included within, non other than King Unas cartouche.

"The destiny of man, as we have said, is to make or create himself. He is, and he will be the son of his works, both for time and eternity." Quote by E. Levi.

Analogy of same {principles?}- that very first one - {written in the stars?}: "Homer confirms in Book 19 that Achilles is an astronomical newcomer when he is compared to Odysseus, whose constellation Bootes, had been in the skies for an eternity. Odysseus says: 'Achilles - mightiest of all the Greeks in battle {'struggle' link}, you are better than i, and that more than a little, but in counsel i am much before you, for i am older and of greater knowledge'. Homer is here stating, that Odysseus personal star, Arcturus, is not as bright and powerful as that of Achilles {Sirius and Canis Major}, but is much 'older', for it has been visible from the northern hemisphere since time immemorial." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

And/or: ''Homer characterized the constellation as ''late in setting''...Minsheu of the 17th century wrote: 'Bootes, or the Carman, is a slow moving star, seated in the north pole'...And all this because as the figure sets in a perpendicular position, eight hours are consumed in its downward progress, and even then the hand of Bootes never disappears below the horizon {'raised' hand?} - a fact more noticeable in early days than now. The reverse takes place however, at its rising i.e.,in a horizontal position...hence ''all at once'' of Aratos...The Arabs referred to it as the Digger, or Tearer, analogous to the classic Trencher in the vineyard...but this could be in error." ['Star Names and Their Meaning' under Bootes].

''Car'' ?

Side note: The story {method?} of Troy {Great Bear} - in relation to the Precession. Orion = Hector and Paris. Achilles = Dog star. His bright armour in relation to 'electrum'. Anything?

Question. What does ''19'' represent?

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

That logic again. That logic that defines and verifies this subject. REGARDLESS of whether it be fact or fiction.

Hebrew equivalent = the word...’Sefirah’, [ ‘Mystical Shape of the Godhead'. Chapter three. G.Scholem ]. Or the Pagan ‘Dykes’, [ unconscious aspect ]. Christian equivalent = ‘Prayer’, i.e., benefit of. In relation to...a repetitive ‘habit’ / discipline. Three examples of same...but from different perspectives. Spot those common links...’The art of True Healing’. By I. Regardie...’Esoteric Healing’. By A. Hopking...’Born of Water and Spirit’. By A. Lohr.

Or even ‘Sister Wendy’..and therefore by implication...her profession. As an example of same. Think about it. Together with 'The Brotherhood of the Common Life'. Mentioned elsewhere.

That link to the ten Commandments of Hebrew fame or Jurisprudence and Kalam...in relation to the Sharia of Islam culture to name but a few. All encompassed and re-evaluated in what Mr Al-Ghazali describes as... "the lowland of servile conformism ...to the highland of independent investigation { 'Jurisprudence' link}''... In relation to striking a balance. To achieve an equilibrium. In all things that we do...and come to believe in.

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

Back of the 'head' ? Try ''64'' for something extra. Part 2.

The benefit of the routine of getting used to the positives as opposed to those negatives...on a day by day basis. That potential of. In relation to a ’Journey’. Hence the link to the word [and its application]... 'meditation'. Its most basic interpretation,[some may say crudely] could be... if one has to 'focus' on anything, then focus on the 'positive' stuff as opposed to its alternative. Chooses are made every day, whether its learning something new, or still coming to terms with something 'old', ['youngest' and/or 'eldest' links]. That 'chose' one way or the other has to be made, consciously or otherwise. Whether we want to, or not. The only difference, is that this subject makes you aware of that fact... and its supposed relevance along a path or 'journey'. Represented by higher/lower.

Symbolic of the word ‘Treasure’. As an example...The ‘Copper scrolls’ were found {''AT the back of a cave''} alongside the ‘Dead sea scrolls’. The ’treasure’, [ in their opinion ]...is that which was found within that ‘Inner landscape’ of those words within those pages rather than in the physical sense...something that might be found...buried. A subtle link to exoteric/esoteric and/or physical/spiritual differences.

Each individual would see the word ‘treasure’ in a different light. Another example could be... "The story of Gilgamesh, the fourth king of Uruk, is in part about what people felt as they adapted to city living. This strange and wonderful story was lost for thousands of years until 1872, when George Smith, a scholar at the British museum, announced he had deciphered tablets excavated in the library of the last Assyrian king. Inscribed on Lapis lazuli, it had been locked up in the temple of Venus inside a copper box." [Chapter 15, 'The Sacred History'. Mentioned elsewhere].

And/or..."Give me a copper coin and I'll tell you a golden story,'' is in part responsible for the more popular title of the Golden Ass. This may be so, but we would also suggest that there is an alchemical tinge to this gold. That it is indicative of pure and priceless Mysteries concealed beneath the surface of the tale." [Extract taken from part 4, 'The Rose Cross and the Goddess'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Coincidence or a meaningful one?

County of Somerset.

As is: "I asked Merlyn, how does one go about looking back into a 'past life'. How was it , that you were able to know with certainty about yours. What did you do?''....''Your question deserves a right answer'', he replied, ''Follow me... ''We walked to the very back of the cave where a large tapestry embroidered with the Red Dragon of Britain hung against the wall. To my surprise and delight Merlyn suddenly grasped the edge and gave it a tug - revealing a 'hidden' passage leading back into the rock. Down into this he disappeared, calling back through the 'darkness' for me to follow....It was as if I had been there before..." [Page 151 from the book by Douglas Monroe].

Similar {principle?} to such 'tales' as Fulcanelli and/or King Arthur legends,i.e.,wisdom to be found within them. Created with that aim in mind. Hence the understanding to such quotes {in reference to 'King Arthur} ''that he was conceived at Tintagel.'' ['History of the Kings of Britain' / Geoffrey of Monmouth]. Get it? Enlarged throughout.

S/W as a means....?

Side note: Look to the ''marshes'' {Somerset?} to locate any possible burial sites of any personage that may represent the Arthurian legends {Alfred?}.

''Wastelands''?

llll (2)

death/rebirth?

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

A working example: " The Catalogue of Ships {'glass' ones?} is said to be the oldest part of the Iliad, but it brings a mixed response from readers. For some it is a tedious list of warriors, their regiments and home towns and the number of ships in which they sailed to Troy, offering little to those keen to move on to the clamour of war in the following books." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Follow the title of the book to 'see' it from a broader {horizon?} viewpoint - by way of the astronomical one. {The Royal way?}. Question. Which came first - The naming of the constellations or subject material?

Side note: "Royal blue is both a bright shade and a dark shade of azure blue. It is said to have been created by millers in Rode, Somerset, a consortium of which won a competition to make a dress for Queen Charlotte, consort of King George III." [Wiki].

"However, the deeper seeker will seek for the primary inner, rather than the secondary outer knowledge, that has to be found within." ['Rose Cross and the Goddess'].

Snake/scorpion?

Another example with the same intent..."Then the priest said,'This book is in the middle of the river at Koptos, in an iron box; in the iron box, is a bronze box; in the bronze box is a sycamore box; in the sycamore box is an ivory box and ebony box; in the ivory/ebony box is a silver box, in the silver box, a golden one and in that is a book. It is twisted all around with snakes and scorpions..."[Extract from the book by S. Ashby]. Some facts [nuggets] within the tale from the 'Lost Book of Djehuti'. Djehuti [Greek = Thoth] - the inventor of hieroglyphs. Koptos; within the u-turn of a river. All of which have to be deciphered to understand the parts within the whole. Question. Boredom?

Question 2. Why a sycamore?

''Snakes/Scorpions'' in relation to 'poison'. That in relation to ''Redeemed/unredeemed'' etc. ALL in relation to a mindset.

Side note: The narrow valley and headwaters of the Eurotas valley {Lacedaemon}, the domain of King Menelaus of Sparta, became the spindly constellation of of Scorpius." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

The Vale of Arryn? {Game of Thrones}.

As is..."According to Thoth, there are nine crystal balls beneath the Sphinx, one inside the other. Archeologists and psychics have been searching for these balls for a long time - it's an ancient legend. It is said that these crystal balls are somehow connected to the consciousness of the earth and to the three levels of consciousness that humans are now experiencing. Various seekers have searched for the nine spheres, spending a great deal of time and money, but according to Thoth, you don't need the crystal balls; you just need to draw nine concentric circles, because its just as revealing. If they'd known it was geometry and consciousness they were seeking and not necessarily an object, the knowledge would have come easier." ['The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life' / D. Melchizedek - Vol 2].

''...beneath the Sphinx'' = limestone. Limestone in relation to 'seabed'. Question. What lies beneath {within} a seabed?

Albion?

Crystallization in relation to UNcrystallization - as a means...? [Enlarged elsewhere].

juyhtg"A monk who had meditated long in search of Illumination {enlightenment?} finally received a great flash of insight. Rushing to his 'roshi' {Zen master}, the monk cried out, 'I have it! I have it! That rock there is inside my head.' "You must have a big head," the master replied, ''to hold a rock that size." Anything?

Another 'fact' to ponder. The relationship between copper, silver, and gold as represented within the 'golden raft of El Dorado. Or why Electrum was used by the ancients, especially in the Old Kingdom of Egypt. As a representation of something. As indicated by such authors as S. Murata. Chapter two. ’Tao of Islam’.

Meditation and yoga another form of helping positive overcoming negative. Hence the reason for its application in most ‘Mystery clubs’. We all understand the merits of a healthy ‘attitude’. Especially in relation to understanding something new. In understanding the value of positive over negative. This subject is no different. Understanding those negative aspects in relation to the positive ones. The understanding of the ‘self’ in relation to the bigger/overall picture. For each and every individual. Regardless of culture / religion or class.

"How does it feel when you are positive? There is one word for it: powerful. Why do you feel powerful? Because the thought process has reversed the direction of you mind energy which is now expanding, linking up to the cosmic forces. The more positive you are the more energy you are absorbing." [Extract from, chapter 11, 'Mind Magic' by B. Shine].

Understanding this subjects 'framework' from the oral tradition up to the present date, gives a deeper meaning to the above quote. A plausible one.

the-real-mccoy

Have no fear - its THE REAL McCOY !! Joe McCoy {from Abilene?}.

"Its fun to be good, its boring to be bad." Quote by one of the 'Royals' {the big ginger one} while in Africa.

Hindu equivalent...."In the last resort, nothing but the vision of the 'Atman' itself can cause the utter dying out of desire, and therefore the disciple is instructed not to remain content with negative restraint but to center his gaze upon the Atman within, unseen, though yet it be....

...."Silence thy thoughts and fix thy whole attention on thy 'master,' [Hebrew equivalent, 'Yahweh' by way of '' Adonai.'' Think on it]...whom yet thy dost not see, but whom thy feelest."

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

...The slightest wavering, the slightest turning back in thought to that sense world on which the disciple has turned his back, will energize anew the desires which he is striving to abandon, and as the tension increases in his desire nature {what some psychologists term the unconsciousness} they will burst out in a great flash of anger utterly devastating to his spiritual progress, shattering his inner perception and causing a loss of those ''memories'' by which he hoped to mount...

Side note: ''memory'' in relation to 'belly'. Anything? Try Gobekli-tepe.

'Car {chariot} of History' by Carlo Franzoni {1819} - Statuary Hall {u.s.a}. The Muse of History. Capricorn {top-down?} - Aquarius {bottom-up?} and Sagittarius {?}. Question. 'Twenty-three' minutes to 'nine'. Recall what both numbers represent - therefore Sagittarius = 'time' related? Synchronistic link?

...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...

'Chariots of The Gods' by E. Von Daniken. Its an inner awareness not external, i.e.,no alien spacecraft. Question. Nothing more therefore than a 'meditation' exercise? After a stressful day? Since the dawn of human {mental?} activity?

...The aim of this practice is that the mind should, to some extent at least, be purified by the practice of selfless action, and at least partially liberated from the 'thraldom' of attachments, so that it may cease to assert its unique viewpoint at every moment. Then as the wind of desire subsides, the disciple will feel a luminous peace and wisdom reflected in his heart, like the images of those eternal stars reflected in the depths of a lake, and he/she will have gained a preliminary perception of the actual nature of ''buddhi'' that will be a thousand times more useful to him/her than all the descriptions of the books." [Chapter two, 'The Yoga of the Bhagavat Gita' by Sri Krishna Prem].

''The Pool of the Eternal Life'' - a quote made in the fictional movie 'The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor''. Found in the Himalaya's - AN Auroch {cow} leading the way.

Question. Have some of those 'archetypes' through the course of generations {evolution?} become generalized? OR nothing more than imaginings {fantasy aspect?}.

Analogy? of same..." he assures us, that even a little meditation [and/or study. This readers input] it saves us from the dire fear of death and/or after death states. Do not fix your spiritual ideal on small mountains, but hitch it to the star of unqualified divine attainment. If you work hard you will get there." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'].

Antoine Faivre puts the role of the scholar thus:...those of us who study it [i.e.,esotericism] are not only called upon to be scholars, but detectives who are able to follow its often elusive traces.

Something hinted at: "Both difficulties are present in the notion of time: it is an accident of motion, which is itself an accident of a moving object, besides it is not a fixed property; on the contrary, its true and essential condition is, not to remain in the same state for two consecutive moments. This is the source of ignorance about the nature of time. We consider time a thing created; it comes into existence in the same manner as other 'accidents', and the substances which form the substratum for the accidents..." [Page 171 'Guide for the Perplexed' / M. Maimonides]. Try ''accident''.

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

Apply the above to get 'ones head' around such quotes {concepts?} as: Buddhi...."An impersonal spiritual faculty 'giving' knowledge of the Cosmic Unity. Also used of the knowledge itself. It is also the seat of such 'higher' emotions as love. In a 'lower' sense, it is used for the purely intellectual aspect of our empirical personalities."

Together with..." The buddhi is the wisdom which 'sees' the One in All; it is also the faculty by which that vision is acquired." [Chapter 10, same book].

Atman...."Originally meaning breath, the word came to stand for 'self,' or anything that may be considered self, from the body, up to the 'highest' reality. Particularly it signifies the higher self [ jivatman], the manifested Cosmic 'self' [Mahat Atman] and the unmanifested transcendent self [Shanta Atman]. It is the consciousness, particularly on the 'higher' levels." [Pages 217/218 of the same book].

Even though written from a Hindu perspective, those general keys [highlighted, i.e., the Micro within the Macro] still define that paragraph.

Different perspective [i.e.,'angle'], same intent..."But, beyond the physical and beyond the psychic is the spiritual world, the world of spirit: 'spiritus' in Latin, 'pneuma' in Greek and 'atman' in Sanskrit. That 'Spirit' though separate from matter and soul is yet interwoven in the whole structure." [Chapter 'one,' to the book 'The Cosmic Revelation' by Bede Griffiths].

Analogy: "Everything has spirit within it - is animate - the word animate means filled with spirit, soul - for anima means soul." ['Elen of the Ways'].

Egyptian ['perspective'] equivalent... In 'profile' in relation to 'face on'. Try Part 3.

Think about it all in relation to that ''UNIVERSAL BIT''.

All a link to 'objectivity' [purpose of] in relation to an understanding, [of say, a subject] relative to the self. The Micro within the Macro. Other definitions [enlarged] elsewhere. Use the 'find' tool [''search box'']. Try 'Atman'. That final link to the ''teacher'' of the 'Dead Sea Scroll' fame. Or Guardian of the Gate.

Those negative ‘aspects’ represented with other key words that indicates an ‘offset to the norm’. More generally known as ‘the fall’ and its relevant importance to the wider ‘picture’. [ In their opinion ]. That fall represented...as in the stone age...with the ‘Heel ’ stone. Offset purposely as indicated in such books as...’In Search of Ancient Astronomies’. By E. Krupp.

The author of 'The Cities of Dreams' believes that 'heel' symbolism proves [amongst others] his hypothesis of the ''ousting of red-haired Neanderthal by Cro-Magnon.'' Using the story in Genesis 25 of the birth of the 'twins' Jacob and Esau - especially the statement - ''elder shall serve the younger.'' [ Chapter 15]. Understanding this subject gives it true meaning. 'Higher over lower' etc. All explained within and throughout.

Robert/Renly Baratheon? {Game of Thrones}.

Side note: Question. Cro-Magnon man in relation to Neanderthal man - which understood 'objectivity' {and all its benefits} - first? Or does it matter?

A {practical?} example: "Bring yourself into the company of people who you feel display a good balance of both sides. Being with other overtly masculine types will only compound your problem. Usually you will find that older people have accomplished this better than younger people. They have had more time to transcend the social stereotypes {archetypes?} and discover their own balance." ['Secrets of Shamanism: Tapping the Spirit Power Within You' / J. and L. Stevens].

Spirit in relation to Soul?

Or more to the mark/point. The ‘offset’ pyramid on the giza plateau followed by the other two. The final one being that most famous one. The largest of the three. That order in which they are meant to be understood.

That final monument taken with the others; represented by those three bright stars within Orions belt. The 'offset' one being ' the least amount of light'. ['Black Genesis'. Mentioned within] . Together with the three stars of the Cygnus constellation, as indicated in the book 'The Cygnus Mystery' . [Especially plate 19 ].

The Northern Cross. 'North' in relation to 'South'. Symbolic of. One indicative of 'top down' the other 'bottom up'. The implication being from a 'fall' to getting back on the right tack. From darkness to light. From unknown to now known. By way of the 'middle' ground. Maintaining that inner equilibrium . Positive over negative. Which if understood correctly, indicates a direction of 'order', i.e.,does that indicate an order of construction?

 

 

Verified; of sorts; by the work of Boris Mouravieff. 'Gnosis', of whom it is said another individual with an esoteric interest , learned much from ; namely Gurdjieff. Within that first chapter of the first volume, can be seen in diagram form that same offset pattern but now in the vertical representation, [explained elsewhere] its true form; together with his 'law of three' . Explained throughout. Only read volumes two and three when ready. Go with your gut feeling. What this subject defines as that ''intuitive one.''Learn to listen to 'IT' instead of those first impressions. That is if you want to understand this first yet final remaining subject.

Anthony Duncan another author, who inspires the reader to look deeper within the subject as a whole, by way of the Christian theme. Found within. Together with 'Jesus Christ Sun of God: Ancient Cosmology and Early Christian Symbolism].

The Hebrews represented the same with the 'serpent' tale [explained throughout], negative overcoming / influencing positive; or more to the point that 'unknown' state if not corrected, [i.e.,brought back to balance] could lead to a fall....or more importantly to remain in a ''fallen state.'' i.e., lucifer = fallen angel [Angel, link to 'shining ones', i.e.,higher relative to 'lower'] that most associate incorrectly or otherwise to a 'serpent', becomes the main anchor point of that biblical story. From a negative back into a positive. From darkness to light. Represented in all cultures as a U-TURN. Explained throughout. Turning those ''wilderness' years into a positive, in order to get to the ''promise land.''

That journey itself when plotted out, representing an about turn; a reversal of fortune; a u- turn. Mount Sinai, the middle of that journey ['lowest' mysteries; 'highest' level of.

bhy"The function of Khidr as a ''person archetype'' for both Suhrawardi and Ibn Arabi is to reveal each disciple to himself...He leads each disciple to his own theophany...because that theophany corresponds to his own 'inner heaven', to the form of his own being, to his eternal individuality...Khidr's mission consists in enabling you to attain to the 'Khidr of your being', for it is in this inner depth, in this 'prophet of your being', that springs the Water of Life at the foot of the mystic Sinai, pole of the microcosm, center of the world...And this is perhaps the secret reason for which the doctrine of Ibn Arabi was so feared by the adepts of the literal religion, of the historical faith; of the dogma imposed uniformly upon all. He who is a disciple of Khidr possesses sufficient inner strength to seek freely the teaching of all masters... " [From the book 'The World Turned Inside Out'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"Water is seen as a symbol of the maternal, the 'Great Mother', as well as the great unfathomable and mysterious well of Wisdom contained within the subconscious mind. In short, Water symbolizes the infinite realm of possibilities......Like the element of 'Fire', Water also symbolizes the ideas of transfiguration and regeneration. The direction or cardinal point assigned to Water is West. [Extract taken from the book by Cicero]. For a 'deeper' point of view try ''incarnation'' in the usual box. If only to understand it from 're-incarnation'.

The author of 'Lazarus Come Forth' defines those two same 'concepts' with the labels ''degeneration'' and '' regeneration'', [chapter 3] . There 'physical' representation [regardless of time place or culture] has always been the same throughout the course of multiple generations over thousands of years. The ebb and flow of 'tides'.

Silbury hill seen from swallowhead springs. Anything?

 

"Around the time of her feast [Bridget of Ireland] , at the beginning of February, an observer standing on the hills summit looking West, would see a swan in flight formed by the inundation of pastures in the vicinity of a u-shaped bend on the river Avon, known as the 'Swans neck'. As with the return of sacred waters in spring at Kennet hills, called swallow head spring, such naturalist phenomena would have been important to the geomythic beliefs of our ancestors. [Page 98, 'The Cygnus Mystery']. Recall what 'Swans' represent or are symbolic of, if only within this subject. Swallow in relation to same. Try ''spring'' and/or ''fountain'' and/or ''u-turn'' etc.

Something hinted at in story form {method?}: "You seem to wonder how I come by all the insights and secrets I possess? You often ask me about their source {'spring'?} do you not?' I nodded. ''Well then, now you know,'' he replied, as his eyes followed a swallow as it darted out over our heads in pursuit of an insect. ''Amazing how it took that fly in mid-air - a work of art. And now you know why they call them 'swallows'....Two bits of knowledge you have learned today." [Page 65 'Deeper Teachings of Merlyn' / D. Monroe].

Side note: Jerusalem {the 'center' of the world} was a holy sight well before the Israelites made it their own....Its a story of mans search for holiness....Before Jerusalem expanded in modern times east-west - the ancient city was founded on two mountains {'horizon' link?} - the Moriah and Mount Zion. But it all really started down there on that dry little ridge called the Ophel. The Ophel Hill some believe to have its meaning in the 'Evening Star'....It had two advantages - it was steep and crucially it had a SPRING....Two stone towers found ''to protect the spring''... "It is the only spring in the area that points east to the sun. A holy significance was given to it even in those early days..." ['Jerusalem: The Making of a Holy Place' / PBS America. Episode 1].

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

Ophel, with the definite article ha-ophel, is a common noun known from two Ancient Semitic languages, Biblical Hebrew and Moabitic. As a place name or description it appears several times in the Hebrew Bible and once on the Mesha Stele from Moab. There is no ultimate agreement as to its exact meaning, and scholars have long been trying to deduce it from the different contexts it appears in. When used as a common noun, it has been translated as "tumors" (1 Samuel 5:9, 12; 6:5), and in a verbal form it was taken to mean "puffed up" (Habakkuk 2:4), this indicating that the root might be associated with "swelling". When referring to a place, it seems from the context to mean either hill, or fortified place, or a mixture of the two, i.e., a fortified hill, and by considering the presumed meaning of the root, it might signify a "bulging or rounded" fortification {'overhang'?}.
Biblical verses in which it has been translated either as "fortified place " (tower, citadel, stronghold etc.) or "hill" are 2 Kings 5:24, 2 Chronicles 27:3 and 33:14, Isaiah 32:14, Nehemiah 3:26 and 11:21, and Micah 4:8. On the Mesha Stele, named for the king of Moab who erected it, Mesha says: "I built Q-R-CH-H (? Karhah), the wall of ye'arim [forests], and the wall of ophel and I built its gates and I built its towers." Here ophel is commonly translated as "citadel". [Wiki].

Side note: "Mars is the first 'superior' planet, lying outside the orbit of the earth...It appears to grow in size and power as it advances towards the earth and is at its closest when the Earth is between the Sun and Mars. It then appears to retreat until it reaches its furthest distance from the Earth, on the other side of the Sun. Known as the god Ares by the Greeks, the Roman month of MARCH {when the Sun is in the sign of Aries} was named after this planet." ['Mapping the Psyche' / Vol. 1 / Clare Martin].

REFRESHER: Something to ponder on: "I have another poem I would like to read. This one is by Rabindranath Tagore, from the Flight of Swans: The wind, you have made free therefore it lightly obeys your command; but me, you have loaded with burdens, with them I toil on. Passing from 'death' to death. Slowly I free myself from them, till empty handed I come ready to serve you''

"I want to use this idea, 'Till empty handed I come, ready to serve you' to talk about the cycle of Saturn and its meaning. Because Saturn's orbit is roughly 28-30 years in length, and every seven to eight years there is a very strong Saturnian energy present, when in order to go forwards, we may need to look back {hindsight?}, like Janus, whom we mentioned." ['Saturn, Chiron and the Centaurs'].

Years later, I reproduced this form on a larger scale in stone {'higher'?}, and this figure now stands in my garden in Kusnacht. Only while I was doing this work did the unconscious supply me with a name." ['Symbols of Transformation'/ C. Jung].

And/or: "Feelings increase in intensity by contagious and repetitive actions....And just as what is achieved in Cancer {the power of the ego} becomes the foundation of the subsequent phase of 'individual' growth {from Leo to Sagittarius}, likewise all truly 'social' activities develop out of what is achieved in Scorpio {the power of the group, including the simplest group of all: man-woman couple}. These social activities come to a consummation in Pisces, the sign of 'social' feelings and the symbol of time fulfilled. Here the cycle ends, but the end can be the foun dation for a new beginning and the new departure in Aries must naturally come out of something. This ''something'' is the seed, the Last day of the preceding cycle Pisces, the pre-germinal or prenatal stage of all types of New Life, the act of stepping over the threshold of the New Life." [Page 181, 'The Zodiac as the Universal Matrix'].

''A special place in hell'. Question. For the Germans or Euro? {edited 8.2.19}.

REFRESHER: "In Scorpio the individual is forced to touch bottom. He must be willing to surrender his individual uniqueness and individual prerogatives. As he does so, he descends in consciousness into the common root of the group. He learns to live in terms of humanity as a whole. In a sense this is symbolised by Christ's descent into 'hell'. Through such a descent the human depths are 'redeemed' - that is, they are made significant. They are given an individualised meaning and a conscious value by this descent of the individual...He is like a tree with a powerful tap-root, able to draw sustenance from the hidden springs of life...which are the foundation of human behaviour...Most individuals may go under, suffering and being overwhelmed, and failing to experience the 'miracle' in Scorpio. What this miracle is can be gathered from the epic recently written by Antoine de Saint-Exupery - 'Flight to Arras. It is the revelation of humanity to the individual {'grace' link?}...In this identification the individual finds his destiny and purpose. What he has gained as an individual he offers as a sacrificial gift to his community...in and through which the total of reality of humanity is revealed..."

"Aquarius was considered {before the discovery of Uranus}, as 'ruled' by Saturn. The Saturn which rules Aquarius and the Jupiter which rules Pisces are, however, expressions of the beginnings of human evolution. They rule over the 'Golden Age' of mankind, that is, the prenatal period and earliest 'childhood' of humanity. Saturn in Capricorn is the 'seed' which closes a cycle; Saturn in Aquarius is the same seed opening the new cycle. The actual and active beginning of the new cycle occurs only as Mars {Aries} tears through the Saturnian seed-envelop and 'germination' occurs..." [Page 172 - same book].

All as a means...?

House Tully? {Game of Thrones}.

In number symbolism 49/50 equates to 'lower' as 99/100 does to 'higher'. From a 'Jubilee' [Hebrew] to the 'Great Year' [Greek/Sumerian]. As explained in such publications as 'The Sirius Mystery' .Mentioned elsewhere. Especially chapters 4 and 5.

"The 'trapped asteroid' or 'planetoid' Chiron was first discovered in 1977 and remains a misfit in the solar system. Originating from the Kuiper Belt, which lies outside the orbit of Pluto, it is not known how long this visitor will remain with us. With an extremely elliptical orbit of 49-51 years, Chiron's astrological function appears to be to link the outer planets with the 'old world' planets, since it fluctuates almost as far from the Sun as Uranus, and yet it passes within the orbital sphere of Saturn." [Page 4-5 'Mapping the Psyche' / Vol.1].

Of particular interest on Dendera's round zodiac is a male figure, his {'strong'?} legs apart as if walking, [or 'striving' ] who sports a ceremonial tail and holds in his right hand a pear-shaped {pine?} mace. Beneath his feet is a goose. [Chapter 15, The Cygnus Mystery]. Recall the Hare at the feet of Orion. An awakening in relation to an understanding. North relative to South. See anything? N.B. Dendera, within the U turn of a river.........

Apophis being the Egyptian equivalent of that same 'negative' aspect. As 'speculated' on within 'The Hiram Key', by way of the Hyksos kings. Some say a link to the Babylonian Tiamat, 'goddess' of the oceans who mated with the 'god' of fresh water,[keys]. Think about it, especially in relation to Marduk, an aspect within the same. Dominance prevails... 'lower' over 'higher'. The 'Dragon' rules, [key].

Mother of Dragons? {Game of Thrones}.

Together with "The Dragon is an old glyph for 'Astral light' [primordial principle] which is the wisdom of Chaos", [page 73 'The Secret Doctrine'. Mentioned within]. Final link to the word 'lucifer'...the light bringer, a link to 'dawn' or the morning star.[Wikipedia]. That representation of a 'negative' [or unconscious,i.e.,unknown quantity], still has within it, a positive potential.

Benjem Stark with his flaming morning star? {Game of Thrones}.

That negative however within Egyptian culture, has the positive overcoming the negative,[link to ma'at. Purpose of]... that u-turn made by way of 'Mehen' and 'Wadjet', that became; for the Egyptians; that ultimate positive symbol the 'Uraeus' and its relevance to the word Kingship. Those Twelve 'heads' that Apophis 'consumes' but are freed when Apophis is 'vanquished', [www.touregypt.net]...by way of those positive aspects represented by 'Mehen' and 'Wadjet' within the whole, i.e., Apophis [by way of 'Uraeus']... gives clues as to Freemasons symbolism of the 'legend' of Hiram Abif and its purpose with the candidate in mind.

Where have you seen it before?

Refresher: "The ancient ones of early eastern Christianity taught that, in relation to intruding thoughts, we should be so vigilant that as soon as they ''show there heads, like a serpent appearing through a hole, we must cut it off''! This is a potent use of the 'stop exercise' which is also meant to halt the entry and influence of ''I's'' that seek to claim our identity. The more you live in a more quiet inner place {an inner sanctuary} where features {negative ones?} cannot take over, the more you will see the difference between passing thoughts and feelings and your deeper self." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way'].

Fifteen 'individuals',[aspects of self] go in search of Mr Abif,[possible potential of higher self] to get the secrets [keys] of becoming a 'master' [higher] mason. With 'murder',[sacrifice link] on 'their' minds. Twelve decide not to go through with it,['consumed'...with guilt? link to the twelve 'heads' and twelve in relation to thirteen.Think about it]. The three remaining do the dastardly deed, [negative over positive] but repent 'for their sins'?... later on. That about u-turn is now possible, a link to the rising Phoenix and death/rebirth symbolism, and/or Mehen/Wadjet in relation to Apophis. Remember what 'three'; is in the main; always symbolic of, i.e., "In order to follow an esoteric path it is not necessary to make a quantitative study of the doctrine; it is enough to know the essentials, which are centered on the nature of 'god' and the nature of man. The symbolism of the elementary numbers is always enlightening, and in this case it is the number three, which holds as it were the keys to understanding the relationship between the 'creator' and his human image. The presence of certain triads in the world, such as that of the primary colors is the proof of a triplicity in the Divine nature itself, the supreme 'Archetype' of all that exists". [Chapter five. 'The Eleventh Hour']. Recall those 'three' boulders at the lowest level at the temple on Elephant Island. Those three aspects [and what they represent] in relation to Lower / higher.

"Jews stationed at Elephantine in Egypt in the 5th century BC, worshiped Jehovah and his goddess Anat Jahu." [From the book by T. Freke and P.Gandy].

bbbbSide note: {something hinted at}: "After eating and exchanging impressions {those first ones?}, it seemed clear that each of us had been naturally drawn to a different section of the figure. Bedewyr to the right staff, Cai to the left; Gwalchmai to the very center torso, and I to the head. This unusual {'peculiar'?} difference seemed extraordinary to me, but Merlyn thought otherwise. He said it was the simple result of our being 'various aspects of the same thing' which was exactly why we were brought here in the first place." [Extract from one of the books by D. Monroe].

Continued: Analogy; with the same intent..."On an island there lived three hermits. They were so simple that the only prayer they used was: ''We art three; thou art three - have mercy on us!" Great 'miracles' were manifested during this naive prayer." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi' from a folk tale by Leo Tolstoy]. For a further head scratch - try ''grace'' [link to ''mercy''] before those first impressions tell the ''lower'' something else. Then try ''miracle'' - same reason.

'Menw - the Son of the Three Shouts'. {Eastern equivalent}?

And/or {i.e.,as seen from a different perspective - a different 'point/'angle' of view'} - "In Stephen Sondheim's musical 'Sunday in the Park with George', which is about the pointillist painter, George Seurat, the creation of beauty was described as a 'connection process'. Seurat was a master at organizing and connecting colored dots, creating beautiful images that humble us to this day. Sondheim reminds us of the importance of this process with his simple lyrics: 'Connect, George, connect'... In the process of reading this book, you will take part in a connective healing journey. Your mind and heart will be extended and united as Dr Pearl connects the dots of his life...The key to understanding this {new?} level of healing is the prefix ''re'' - i.e.,re-attending, re-connecting, re-regulating, re-ordering healing...

Square and the circle?

Review: "In the Book of What is in the Dwat, the incarnation of the principle of light, stands in the boats cabin during the first six hours of the night, that is during the descent. For the reascent he stands in the coils of the serpent Mehen, whose name means 'spiralic', and who plays a role in the rebirth of the solar globe. Putting together such teachings, one can conceive that the 'sun's' regeneration occurs by virtue of the flux of spiral currents which ceaselessly precipitate and coagulate the impalpable cosmic substance...At the eleventh hour the regenerated solar globe is represented, for the first and only time in this Book, at the prow of a boat {Part 3}. It is drawn towards the Eastern gate of the sky by Mehen...In the twelfth hour in the middle register...This is the books apotheosis and can be understood in several ways. Physically it is the glorious rebirth of the 'solar' globe, and is therefore the triumph of light over darkness...Spiritually...through multiple purifications, transforms the densest matter {Sarsen stones?} into a more subtle one {'Blue' ones?}...the conquest of shadowless light." [Extract from the book 'Egyptian Mysteries' - in relation to tombs at Thebes. Mentioned elsewhere].

Abydos in relation to Thebes. Question. Where would ''shadow'' be represented? Or what would it be represented by? Don't forget 'Part 3,' i.e.,try ''ship'' and/or ''plough'' and/or ''spiral''.

"Ploughing is repetitive work, furrow after furrow, furlong [a furrows length] after furlong. But now its time to stop work for a while, 'elevenses' as the English say, the time 11a.m.,called in Malay tulih tenggala, ''when the plough is idle''. [Quote taken from 'The Book of Babel'. Mentioned elsewhere].

11th Hour?

Apply {understand?} all the above to define the following: " "...The Sun is its 'father' the Moon its 'mother', the 'wind' hath carried it in its belly, the earth is its nurse. The 'father' of all perfection in the whole world is here. Its force or power is entire if it be converted into earth. Separate thou the 'earth' from the fire, the subtle from the gross sweetly with great industry. It ascends from the earth to the heaven and again it descends to the earth and receives the force of things 'superior' and 'inferior'. By this means you shall have the glory {''grace''?} of the whole world and thereby all obscurity shall 'fly' from you. Its force is above all force. For it vanquishes every subtle thing and penetrates every solid thing. So was the world created...Hence i am called Hermes Trismegist, having the three parts the philosophy of the 'whole' world. That which i have said of the operation of the 'Sun' is accomplished and ended." " ['Emerald Tablet].

Follow the title to define {keys?} - in its broader {worldly?} context.

The 'nurse' of Bran Stark? {Game of Thrones}. After all - she can tell a 'bloody' good story can't she? [Series 1. Episode 3].

A {working?} example: "The furious fighting {''struggle''?} that continues in Book 11 gives possibly the most comprehensive conceptual chart of the constellations of the night sky in the entire Iliad. Constellations identified with Greek warriors are: Leo, Perseus, Argo Navis, Lyra, Eridanus, Orhiuchus and Bootes - and those of the Trojans are Ursa Major, Virgo, Orion, Aquarius, Equuleus, and Serpens Caput..."

And/or: "born from the stella Virgo, who in the stella mythology is the Virgin corn goddess." Same book. Try ''wheat/barley/corn''.

And/or "The eleven pairs of horses to which Homer refers {i.e.,Pandarus,i.e.'In my father's stable there are eleven excellent chariots, fresh from the builder, quite new, with cloths spread over them; and by each of them there stand a pair of horses, champing barley and rye'} - are the twenty two {11+11?} stars of Sagittarius {the astronomical home of Pandarus and his father} and contiguous Corona Australis {Pandarus quiver}. The 'barley' and 'rye' they are eating are common Homeric codewords and indicate that the stars are set against the background of the Milky Way; the chariots cannot be seen for they are covered with 'cloths'. It will never be known who made the first study of this corner of the sky, but they were expert enough to observe that twenty two stars could be 'paired' according to their brightness or magnitude..." [Same book].

Question. To which of the two {i.e.,Greek / Trojan} does the constellation Sagittarius 'belong' to. And why?

Question 2. Any relevance to the 22 letters of say, the Hebrew alphabet?

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

N.B. ''Transcendent third'' link - in reverse - i.e.,top/down. 'See' it? Understanding that defines ''horses'' in relation to say, ''bulls''.

Refresher:"This is what the legend means when it says that each star is a soul. This is the meaning of the five-pointed star, symbol of man..." [Her-Bak']. Try ''Krishna'' for something extra to ponder on.

A change of pace; but along a similar path {i.e.,'Freemasonry'}: "The genuine 'secrets' of the order, we are told, have been lost, and substituted secrets are in their place until such time as the true ones will be found." Together with " The stylised death and resurrection of the candidate is the act of making one a 'master' mason." [Emphasis this readers.Chapter one.' Hiram Key' /Knight and Lomas]. Those Twelve heads because of that positive 'effort' are now 'released'. Apophis has been vanquished. Positive over negative, by way of those three aspects, of the now higher self...from which a new awareness 'dawns'. Represented by the morning star...Sirius, [the dog star]. Chapter one, same book. Something 'lost' is now found. I.e., No scrolls will be 'found' under Rosslyn chapel, because that ''understanding'' becomes ''that which was lost is now found''. Question. Which came first...The 'Constellations' or the Mythology associated with them, or the intention of both.... and why?

Question. ''Serpent'' = 'middle ground' ?

"There is a further maverick item concerning the Pleiades. As already mentioned, this constellation consists of six readily discernible stars and one considerably fainter. Particularly in Europe and Asia there are many different legends which 'account' for this situation. A typical story tells how one of the sisters lost her 'virginity', and in her shame hid her light from her companions. P. E. and G. D. Considine write as follows in this connection: 'Of the seven stars one is at present distinctly fainter than the other six, and there are many myths regarding this so called lost Pleiad. In fact the myths occur in so many ancient literature's that there is a well established theory that at one time all seven of the stars were approximately of the same brightness.' Other authors add 'It is remarkable that so many nations speak of them as seven sisters when only six are clearly visible. All the legends therefore have a postscript to account for the missing seventh." [Chapter 4 from the book by S. Gooch]. Recall what ''virginity'' implies.

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

"...the Virgin Mary was venerated by the medieval church and is still veneraterd by Catholics today, as virgin in our modern sense of the word, even though it is recognised by tradition that she bore carnal children to Joseph after the virgin birth of her Eldest Son, and is also hailed in Latin hymns as spouse as well as mother of her son. These things would form a flagrant contradiction or require an impossible miracle, if they were to be taken as true on the objective plane. If, however, we recognise religious concepts as symbolic and interpret these contradictions psychologically we realise that the term ''virginity'' must refer to a quality, to a subjective state, a psychological attitude, not to a physiological or external fact." [Chapter 8, from the book by the author M. Esther Harding]. Put ''quality'' in the box.

The real question however that the reader should ask of him/her self is the usual one.
