ihapy[1]Something to ponder on: "Granite is called 'Mat' and its hieroglyphs are followed by a determinative depicting a kind of vase. And granite is so much associated with its place of extraction, that is, the first nome of Upper Egypt, that the name of the metropolis of its nome, Abu {meaning ''elephant''}, is also followed by the distinctive determinative of granite. The word 'mat' designates granite in general, and perhaps most particularly - red granite...This same word 'mat', determined by a man holding his hand {finger?} to his mouth, means ''dream, discover, imagine, conceive''...As to the word Abu - designated elephant, ivory, and the Isle of Elephantine - its root is Ab; when accompanied by the determinative for fire, the latter designates a temple brazier. Granite, coming from 'fire', is also employed for certain doors...'' ['Sacred Science'].

"For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened." New Testament.

A {working?} example: ''To Bob, who went through the door..." Enlarged elsewhere.

Abu Ruash from above. Tau Cross? UPSIDE DOWN?

Side note: Speculation about Djedefre's pyramid in the program {'The Lost Pyramid' / History Channel}. Granite used - if only in the 'lower' course. Limestone elsewhere {'higher'?}. Menkaure pyramid {'fall'?} supposedly influenced by same. Kings chamber {'free' standing} in the Great Pyramid {Khufu} constructed of same. Get into a mind set, to get beyond: ''A SHOW of power and prestige''. Also in the same program it contains the largest causeway in Egypt running North - South. As opposed to the other three {East-West}. Built on the highest spot in Egypt: ''A windy and rocky outcrop; a very cold and windy place.''

Question. Would those causeways {if extended} meet?

Question 2. Where is the 'lowest' spot in Egypt?

N.B. From Saqqara - giza - Abu Ruash = S/E - N/W direction.

"Meanwhile we have much work at hand. By reflection, by study, upon these mysteries, we can make our light glow from within.........The Alchemists themselves have promised that 'divine' aid is always forthcoming to those who in all sincerity and humility do even no more than study there writings." [Quote by from the book by I.Regardie].

'The Magical Travels of Abra the Elephant' / Liz Winstanley.

The word ''Sincere'' and ''humility'' used throughout in such works as the Quran. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

As an example; through study; define the following..."Just as the practice of concentration is the ''art of forgetting'' and the practice of profound 'communion', or meditation, is the mastering of the ''art of sleeping'', so does the 'contemplation' of authentic initiation signify the mastering of the ''art of dying''. [Extract from the book by Tomberg]. Further clues in Part 1.

Apply it to: "But none of these comparatively northern streams suit the stellar position of our Eridanus, for it is a southern constellation, and it would seem that its earthly counterpart ought to be found in a corresponding quarter = the Nile, the only noteworthy river that flows from south - north, as this is said to do when rising above the horizon...Caesius thought our Eridanus was the sky representation of the Jordan, or the Red Sea, which the Israelites passed over - as on dry land." ['Star Names and Their Meaning'].

Wet/Dry?

Side note: From a different perspective: "Astrology, being a system of symbolic interpretation of significant astrological facts, must obviously differentiate strongly between the Sun - a life - and light giving star which is the center of the astronomical system to which we belong - and planets which are merely reflectors or transmitters of light, and of which the Earth itself is one. If we refer to the Ego as ''a complex of representations which constitute the center of my field of consciousness and appears to possess a very high degree of continuity and identity'', it is clear that the astrological symbol thereof {geocentric?} is the Earth itself as seen from the birth place of the native. The continuous field of consciousness of any man is what is contained within the boundaries of his horizon, and by implications what, though below the horizon, will emerge into the field of his consciousness. In other words , the quadrature of the astrological chart {horizon and meridian - and especially Ascendant and Mid-Heaven} represents the form of the field of consciousness. The ego may be considered as the birth point itself, the center of the chart - or, in an even more accurate symbolism - the apex of the pyramid built on four angles of the chart...." [Pages 219-20 'The Astrology of Personality' / Dane Rudhyar].

Think about ALL the above in relation to that universal ''bit'' - in that INNER sense of the word.

Continued: "The man most severely punished on the Day of Resurrection is a scholar whom god did not benefit by his knowledge." Quote by Muhammad.

"Believe nothing which is unreasonable, and reject nothing as unreasonable without proper examination." quote by Gautama Buddha.

"Naturally 'forms' differ from one civilization to another, but though more accustomed myself to the Hindu forms, i have no scruple in employing others when necessary. If they can contribute to the understanding of certain points; there are no objections to this, since they are only different expressions of the same thing. Once again, truth is one, and it is the same for all those who, by whatever way, have attained to its understanding." [Chapter 7, 'The Underlying Religion: An Introduction to the Perennial Philosophy'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Something hinted at: {i.e., apply the above to understand the pagan equivalent of something}: "In my world I am known as the Winter Lord, ruler of the year's dark half, whose domain is deepest glen and darkest cave... The Oak men call me Cernunnos: wild huntsman of the woods, or the Green Man, or the Horned One. And then there are others - many others - for man has always been closest to the earth, and so must akin to my face over other gods. But, as the lord Merlyn well knows, I have little memory for such things. Question him, if you will!'' [Page 250. Douglas Monroe book]. Try ''forgetting/remembering''.

Question. If Cernunnos = ''forgetting'' {lower?} - Who/what represents ''remembering'' {'higher'?}.

Side note: Scorpion King? {i.e., higher or lower?}.

'Don't forget to remember' {The Bee gees}.

N. B. "Sherry Salman considers the image of the Horned God in Jungian terms, as an archetypal protector and mediator of the outside world to the objective psyche." [Wiki].

Something hinted at: "Once during those last eerie, in-between moments of waiting, I thought I 'fancied' seeing a great pair of antlers move silently against the sky line and then vanish. ''So it was only a 'deer'...!" I said to myself, as if scolding a silly child....But I then saw those antlers again...''Listen to me...listen!'' it said in a low voice. 'The gateway of your soul lies in an ancient forest.' Then it was gone.'' [Page 389 of the book by Douglas Monroe. Chapter entitled 'Beyond Word and Deed'].

And/or: "....that the 'deceased' {death/rebirth} shall choose the fountain of Mnemosyne, remembrance, and not the fountain of Lethe - forgetfulness. And, to take an example - the whole Tibetan Book of the Dead is founded upon it. Is this no more than a foolish clutching at consciousness on the part of mortal man? Might it not be that the break through to wordless knowledge {'Gnosis'?} - is the climax of our whole existence...." [Page 154 'Science of Mythology: Essays on the Myth of the Divine Child and the Mysteries of Eleusis' / C. Jung and C. Kerenyi].

Side note: Just understanding {in the internal sense of the word} one of those universal constants {archetypes/keys}  gives clues to such 'unknown quantities' as is constantly speculated on in such activities as say as that which occurred at Eleusis. i.e., ''child''.

And/or: "The experience of the initiates in Eleusis had a rich mythological content, expressed for instance, by the dazzling and sensuous image of Anadyomene rising from the waves, On the other hand it can also be expressed in the plainest and simplest way. From the sacred records of a religion totally different in style - Buddhism - we learn of a remarkable ''sermon'' preached by its founder. One day the Buddha 'silently' held up a 'flower' before his disciples. This was the famous ''Flower Sermon''. Formally speaking, much the same thing happened in Eleusis when a mown ear of grain was silently shown. Even if our interpretation of the symbol is erroneous, the fact remains that a mown ear was shown in the course of the mysteries and that this kind of wordless sermon was the sole form of instruction...." [Page 152. Same book].

Grain of Wisdom?

H....The connection between the number Twelve, i.e., the Twelve Apostles, the twelve tribes of Israel, the twelve knights of the round table; the twelve signs of the zodiac. To name but a few, and the number Thirteen. Especially in relation to the ‘missing’ thirteenth sign of the zodiac, [ ‘Arachne rising’. By J. Vogh and ‘Cities of dreams’. By S. Gooch. That same link to 'Synchronicity'. N.B. J. Vogh associates it / names it to something different. So don't forget that pinch of salt... ]. Or..."Who were these gods of heaven and earth, divine yet human, always headed by a Pantheon, or inner circle of twelve deities." [page, 87 'The 12th Planet']. Can you now see, what the author has not yet seen?

N.B. 'Twelve' in relation to ''foundation stone''. Enlarged throughout.

Two different aspects describing the same thing. Spot those common links to understand the whole. ''The stick across his shoulder represents the 'vegetable' dimension of his being, that lies between the spiritual part, and the animal part down below, where the dog {spotted?} clawing at his leg represents unredeemed animal elements. Indicative of. [All show in some form, a dog, more often than not following behind i.e.,unknown/unaware link]...'To dog ones footsteps'?... The unredeemed part of the vegetable body is represented by the burden carried in the sack. [Donkey link]. His three point hat alludes to the higher qualities he has yet to evolve. His upward gaze represents his aspiration towards these.'' [Chapter 19, The Secret History of the World]. Together with... ''The star Sirius however, does not stand alone. It is, in fact, part of a bright constellation we call Canis Major, the Big Dog, which trails behind Orion the Hunter. As the brightest of all the visible stars, Sirius is almost ten times more brilliant than any other star, and can be seen in broad daylight.'' [Page, 239 Black Genesis]. Together with . notice how because of that unredeemed [unknown] quantity he may fall off his own precipice. Both moon and sun are [like the dog] all behind. All a link to higher / lower, i.e.,yet to be aware of. As for the spots if someone is said to change ones spots or colors [or even stripes] What does it imply? i.e.,Jeremiah 13:23, Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots. A leopard cannot, but man/woman can, [think about it, relative to higher / lower] and we all understand that color is only skin deep. Hence the link to the definition of same [i.e.,Collins English Dictionary/ To change ones spots] to reform ones character. As will be proven when those that represent the Giza complex are discovered. Egypt's true ancestors, as speculated in such books as Black Genesis or Legacy of the Black Gods by P. Simons, i.e.,more South than North. More Ethiopian, than Mediterranean. As for the stripe analogy, of same. Herod would be a good example, of that unredeemed quantity, WHICH REMAINED UNREDEEMED. i.e., ''Tigers never change their stripes.'' For this reader however, the real questions are, [regardless even, if and when such locations are proven valid...Sense or non sense, a possibility or not? i.e.,Why go to all this time and effort?

The question is... Do those aspects relate to ‘a god/s’. Or an individual/s. If the word 'god’ is symbolic then it has to be an individual/s. If so. Who is the individual/s? That connection to the ‘dollar bill’ and the 'fool' of the Tarot. Or the ‘heel’ stone of Stonehenge, [to name but a few], if only in the still...‘unknown’ state. Represented more often than not as 'shadow' ....

i.e., taking the Zodiac as an example. Those twelve signs / keys all have positive and negative attributes. Those taken together with what encompasses them. Twelve plus what they are part of. Twelve plus that one ’whole’...together with...’lucky / unlucky’. Symbolism of. Hebrew equivalent = ‘Urim / Thummim’, i.e., in relation to the twelve 'aspects' of the 'breast plate', ['heart' symbolism link]. Common parlance, "a throw of the dice", in relation to 'chance' and 'fate', but now with the 'individual' effort. An individual 'effort', by way of...thought, emotion and will, [ a balance of].

''The harder you work the luckier you get." [BBC 'Operation Gold Rush' with D. Snow]. The same could be said for both a mental and physical task?

'On Divination and Synchronicity: The Psychology of Meaningful Chance' / Marie-Louise Von Franz].

Lucky horseshoe?

''If chance will have me king, why chance may crown me?" [Shakespeare, Macbeth Act 1, Scene 3].

Or the Eastern equivalent = ‘I Ching’ , ...in relation to a possible result...one way or the other. Either in a positive or negative ‘direction’. From either an aware/unaware position. In relation to a possible potential. A possible positive potential. That link to the ‘development of’ and the ‘return of’... In relation to an understanding. As indicated in such books as...’The Secret of the Golden Flower’. By T. Cleary...and/or Richard Wilhelms translation of same, [ especially and if only because of Mr C. Jung commentary in the same book in relation to ‘synchronicity’ and the title of the book. Together with Mr Wilhelms opinions on the benefit of those ‘general ideas’.

Side note: Those broken / unbroken lines within the hexagram forms of I Ching in relation to: "...This law shows why straight lines never occur in our activities, why, having begun to do one thing, we in fact constantly do something entirely different, often the opposite of the first, although we do not notice this...All this and many other things can only be explained with the help of the law of octaves together with an understanding of the role and significance of 'intervals' which cause the line of the development of force to constantly change, to go in a broken line, to turn round, to become its 'own opposite' and so on. Such a course of things, that is, a change of direction, we can observe in everything. After a certain period of energetic activity or strong emotion or a right understanding a reaction comes, work becomes tedious and tiring; moments of fatigue and indifference enter into feeling; instead of right thinking a search for compromises begins; suppression, evasion of difficult problems. But the line continues to develop though now not in the same direction as at the beginning..." ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

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

'Retrograde Planets: Traversing the Inner Landscape' / Erin Sullivan.

Or the Hebrew equivalent. ’The Thirteen Petaled Rose’. By A. Steinsaltz. Compare to 'The Rose of the World' by D. Andreev. An individual who was not a member of any 'school' or 'mystery' club, and yet who arrived at the same answers. Who understood that same framework. Only to be read when you feel like a good ‘head scratch’...and when you want to compare it to the other three. Indicative of finding the ‘right’ author. One that you can relate to. As you do with any subject that one has an interest in.

Some you will find irritating others not so. Persevere with it. Find the ‘good’ ones. The ones you relate to. Then find out who they recommend or what books they read.

Side note: "In picking up this book you are about to embark {'ship'?} on a fascinating journey. It is a journey to places where, according to the author, many of us have already been but about which we have forgotten. It is also a journey within, into that psychological space where our ideas and beliefs about god, spirituality, and religion reside. During both journeys we are likely to encounter wonder and recognition, scepticism and acceptance, rejection and admiration, confusion and long sought understanding. For some this journey will be the start of a much longer one; for some it is but one more leg of a journey undertaken earlier; in any case, ''The Rose of the World'' is not a final destination." [Intro. to the book of same title by D. Andreev].

And/or: " This second item {i.e., Heywood's retelling of the story of Fair Rosamund }, has curious mythological overtones, and Rosamund 'The Rose of the World' is the English version of Ariadne, the classical goddess of the Thread, who appear in the closing version of The Prophecies." [ 'The Prophetic Vision of Merlin' / R. Stewart].

Continued: Especially noteworthy because most individuals; certainly at the outset; are of the impression that all authors of this subject-because of its nature- i.e., because its- "secret stuff"...would know what they are writing about. Therefore more often than not that same reader would assume that if they cannot understand a particular author-especially at the outset- then it must be 'their fault'. The readers fault. Not so. For the reasons given above.

".......Ever since the 'Afrokhans' have had contact with, and were invaded by Europeans, we have adopted their meanings and definitions of words, in the European languages we use. However, we would do well to turn those meanings on their heads, or at least use them in our own favour. By doing this, we are able to examine them from another angle [key, i.e.,perpective] and better understand what they really mean. Remember....'all truths are but half truths'. For example we are led to believe that the 'underworld' is the abode of the devil, or the abode of demons. This is by way of EXOteric meaning or typically European interpretation. ESOterical definition of the underworld however, suggest that the 'underworld' is actually referring to the 'Collective Unconscious', the Amenta or Akasha of the Afrokhan man and woman." [i.e.,indicative of its origins]. [Page 50, 'Legacy of the Black Gods' by P. Simons]. .....

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

"The underworld in this context refers to an aspect of the 'Divine' astral light, which is divided into two main regions...the Amentet and the Tuat. The Tuat represents the 'lower', the underworld or the subconscious mind, and Amentet represents the 'upper', or the conscious mind." [Same page, same book]. Ancient African equivalent.

Analogy: ''Otherworld'' {underworld} in relation to such quotes as ''collective ancestral wisdom'' and/or ''metaphysical planes'' relative too - ''Avalon, Hollow Hills, the Blessed Isles, Summerland {'Summer Triangle'?}…. in the place beyond the sunset, ever westward where the light is always that of twilight {i.e.,from a as yet 'unknown' aspect}. Hence: ''It is a waiting place, a place of learning and nourishment {'food' link}....The place of traditional learning and wisdom, where springs the well of inspiration....For the Jews it was to 'be gathered in Abraham's Bosom.'' And/or {analogy}: "The Celtic Otherworld retains its ambiance of 'Joy'. It is aptly described as the Fortunate Isle, the Honeyed Plain of Bliss, the Apple Isle and the Summer country: all set somewhere west..." [Pages 107-109 same book]. Try ''summer stars''.

Analogy of same; but note from a different view point; from a different perspective BUT those common factors {i.e.,keys} are the same : ..."The 'Investigator' remembers thinking during the six weeks between major experiments, that whatever he had tuned into was not ''Cosmic Consciousness'' but a kind of planetary consciousness; he wondered who coined the term, ''cosmic consciousness,'' and what it contained..." [Extract from the book 'The Cosmic Trigger']. Enlarged further on.

animus"Diodorus Siculus [Greek Historian] writes in the time of Augustus [1st century BC]: ''Now the Ethiopians, as historians relate, were the first of all men and the proofs of this statement, they say, are manifest. For that they did not come into their land as immigrants from abroad, but were the natives of it and so justly bear the name of autochthones [sprung from the soil itself] is, they maintain, conceded by practically all men..." "They also say that the Egyptians are colonists sent out by the Ethiopians, Asar [Osiris] having been the leader of the colony. For, speaking generally, what is now Egypt, they maintain, was not land, but sea, when in the beginning the universe was being formed; afterwards, however, as the Nile during its times of inundation carried down the mud from Ethiopia, land was gradually built up from the deposit...And the larger parts of the customs of the Egyptians are, they hold, Ethiopian, the colonists still preserving their ancient manners. For instance, their beliefs that the Kings are Gods, the very special attention which they pay to their burials, and many other matters of a similar nature, are Ethiopian practices, while the shapes of their statues and the forms of their letters are Ethiopian; for of the two kinds of writing which the Egyptians have, that which is known as popular [demotic,i.e.,exoteric] is learned by everyone, while that which is called Sacred [hieratic,i.e.,esoteric], is understood only by the priests of the Egyptians, who learnt it from their Fathers as one of the things which are not divulged, but among the Ethiopians, everyone uses these forms of letters."

For this reader the ‘forward’ of any book was the most important. Not only does the reader get a good idea of why the book is being written in the first place...but more importantly, how it is written and ‘explained’. Just as we ‘speak the way we think’. We also write the way we think...do we not. Think about it, in relation to the ‘types’ of individuals who do write about ’it’. Rather than leaving / relying on just those ’first impressions’. Question. At what stage does anyone with an interest in a subject decide to 'express' it in written form. In book form. For others to read.

Someone once said - that each person has a book 'inside of them'. True/untrue?

"Those committed to the inner life and its power of transformation ought to be grateful for the many avenues now available for spiritual knowledge. The chances are increased that the right book will fall into the right hands at the right time." ['The Wisdom of the 4th Way'/mentioned elsewhere].

That final link to such works as ‘Man and his symbols’. By C. Jung and especially ... ‘Memories, dreams, reflections'. By C. Jung. In relation to his very own...’Corner stone’. Understanding this subjects use of the above explains why the 'corner' stone of both the Whitehouse and the Capital are 'lost'. [Bred Meltzer. Satellite channel]. i.e.,once understood, that which was once 'lost' is now found. That 'corner stone' that the individual [ the 'seeker'] can now 'build' on. That same stone that now becomes the 'head'. Question. Keystone?

"Self-observation is the key."

A working example?..."It is not possible to practice self observation all the time. In fact, one of the critical discoveries in this effort lies precisely in seeing how often we forget to do this. This 'forgetting' is of course falling into the natural state of Sleep in which we all live as stimulus response machines, to use Gurdjieff's language. Remember that this primary effort of the Work is a first step that evolves with personal experience. What you are creating by this effort is: a) a point of awareness beyond your mechanical behavior, and b) a gathering of more objective information about yourself. This kind of self-knowledge is the cornerstone to spiritual evolution, as was stated by Socrates and all the sages of humanity. Since we live primary in illusions and self delusions, it is necessary to face the reality of how much of our ''pictures'' of ourselves are imaginary. As the Hindu's say, we live in ''Maya'' {illusion} and it is this ignorance that keeps us asleep to our true potential and birthright." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way]. Continued elsewhere.

arch

A Lemniscate arch. Known as a figure of eight. Link to Lemnos. A Greek Island : the eighth largest in Greece. Sacred to Hephaestus. The Greek equivalent of the Roman god Vulcan. Recall the number associated with the Greek word for Jesus. Coincidence?

"The purpose of this stone can only be understood by another category of builders, who at this stage have not yet been brought in: they are the ones who have passed 'from the try - square to the compass', and by this distinction we must naturally understand the geometric forms which these two instruments serve respectively to trace, namely, the square and the circle, which as we know symbolize in a general way earth and heaven. Here the square form corresponds to the lower part of the edifice and the circular form to the upper part, which in this instance must therefore consist of a dome or a vault. Indeed the 'corner stone' or 'arch stone' is in reality a keystone.

Question. A fictional story? A convoluted, twisted one?

Compass of the Heart?

''The inner guardian is our true North, the keeper of the charts.'' Try 'map' / 'whale'.

And/or: ''Compass'' in relation to 'encompass' / 'compassion'?

Coomaraswamy says that to give the true meaning of the expression...''has become the head of the corner''...could be translated as ''become the keystone of the arch,'' which is perfectly exact, and thus this stone, by its shape as well as position, is effectively unique in the entire edifice, as it must be in order that it may symbolize the principle on which all depends.".......[ or is 'built' on. This readers input].

"The great hat in the form of a lemniscate which the 'magician' wears, like his attitude of perfect ease, indicates this transposition. For the lemniscate [the horizontal eight] is not only the symbol of infinity, but also that of rhythm, of the respiration and circulation - it is the symbol of eternal rhythm or the eternity of rhythm..." [Taken from the book by Tomberg; 'Meditations on the Tarot: A Journey into Christian Hermeticism'].

As unlikely as it may seem [i.e.,if only to those first impressions] - try ''rhythm''.

And/or: "The lemniscate was a fairly popular symbol in mediaeval art, but its form is more often than not used in hidden structures, especially in connection with planetary considerations, or in relation to spiritual hierarchies." ['The Secret Zodiac'].

Hindu analogy on the same principle - ''Vedanta = A school of Indian philosophy that emphasizes one supreme Principle, which is the foundation of the universe." Recall the importance of the 'Lotus' to that religion as a whole, in relation to a 'foundation', i.e.,"O Sadguru, giver of grace! You yourself are the knowledge of perfection i received from you. You fully pervade everywhere, and Siddha students see you repeatedly in the Blue Pearl. O blue jewel, Bhagawan Shri Nityananda, i bow to your lotus feet." [ Extract taken from the 'Invocation' to the book, 'Play of Consciousness' by Swami Muktananda].

Further clues..."Emulating the sayings of his Himalayan guru, Ali [also known as 'Sri M' ] strongly asserts that one has to live like the lotus, which, while growing in water and deriving its nourishment from it, [link to 'mud' symbolism] still does not let water wet its petals." [Back cover to the book, 'Deeper Aspects of Hinduism'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Link to wet / dry symbolism.

"Today I see Muhammad ascend. The friend is everywhere, in every action. Love, a lattice. Body, fire. I say, show me the way. You say, put your head under your feet. That way you rise through the stars and see a hundred other other ways to be with me. There are as many as there are flight paths of prayer at dawn." [Poem 17 'Flightpath', taken from the book, 'Rumi: Bridge to the Soul' by Coleman Barks.

Side note: "In ancient Egypt, the sign of the lotus flower meant 1000 and that of the boat, 10000. " ['Mystery of Numbers' from the chapter 'Ten' - what the author defines as 'Completeness and Perfection'].

cross arch

The key stone, that in this example could be represented as the navel. The midriff of the human form.

"We have here yet another application of the analogy, which has been explained already on previous occasions, between the 'first' and the 'last', or the 'beginning' and the 'end'. The construction represents manifestation, in which the principle appears only as the ultimate completion: and it is precisely in virtue of the same analogy that the 'first stone' or the 'foundation stone' may be regarded as a 'reflection' of the last stone which is the true cornerstone."[Chapter 43, 'Symbols of Sacred Science']. Think about both paragraphs in relation to those missing 'corners' of the Palenque Lid. Once understood...''that which was lost [or 'missing' ] is now found.''

"Metals are purified by 'fire', and the emotions by suffering. The lower desires must starve to nourish the higher; the animal passions must be crucified and die; but the angel of Will removes the stone [ 'lid' link] from the sepulchre and liberates the higher energies from the sphere of selfishness and darkness; and then the resurrected virtues will begin to live and become active in a new world of enduring light and harmony." [Chapter 5, from the book by F. Hartman]. That link to ''transcentent third.'' Try ''mettle'' and/or ''cattle''.

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

A working example..."Gurdjieff had his students start the day at the Prieure where he taught for some years with 45 minutes of silence. This was not a time to practice self-observation - that is for use in the ''heat of the battle'' when there are mechanics at work to be discovered." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way']. Continued elsewhere.

''45'' in relation to three-quarters of something. 'Fire' in relation to ''battle''.

Question. Was there a lid in the 'Kings' chamber?

All the above proving the viability of the subject. Regardless of ones first impressions of it. More sense than non-sense. The real question is [if only to this reader] Why. Why go to all this time and effort?

Question. ''Mercy'' link?

arch3

J[a]...Using Egyptian esoteric lore. Which according to most; all else originated from. One can establish as the French archaeologist Auguste Mariette attempted such ‘secrets’ as...the burial place of Khufu and his two close associates of Giza fame. All three are buried in the same place. Why? Because the whole giza complex is symbolic of that same personal journey. Symbolic of a concept. Herodotus was only told; or only gave; part of the answer. He was told that Khufu was buried under the pyramid. Symbolically he is; at a distance; but not directly...

and the possible burial place of Akhenaten. A ‘different’ belief system represented by a different location, i.e., Amarna = 'Middle' nome = 'Hare' symbol. Think about it...in relation to all the above. Which answers the reason as to why such a barren/windy wilderness was chosen in the first place. Together with the significance of his very own....’Boundary ’ Stella/s { '16' in total - enlarged elsewhere}. Another co-incidence? Or a 'meaningful' one? Some believe he is already found. Others do not. [See notes by Livio Catullo Stecchini, for verification].

Something extra: {analogy?}:  "On numerous occasions I brought the conversation round to the numina, especially to rites and ceremonies....In front of an empty hut, in the middle of a busy street, I had seen a carefully swept spot several yards in diameter. Concerning these I had only seen a single piece of evidence.....If someone died the next village was informed and the body brought to the mid-point between the two villages....With the Elgonyi, the body was placed in the middle of the hut. The laibon walks around the body, sprinkling milk from a bowl onto the floor, murmuring, 'Ayik adhista ayik!'....The old man said this was the true religion of all the peoples, that all Kevirondos, all Buganda, all tribes for as far as the eye could see worshipped adhista - that is, the sun at the moment of rising. Only then was the sun munga, God. The first delicate golden crescent of the new moon in the purple of the western sky was also god. But only at that time; otherwise not... " [Pages 295/6 'Memories, Dreams and Reflection' / C. G. Jung].

And/or: ''The Great Pyramid was a tomb for Khufu. No question about it.'' ['History of Ancient Egypt' / Bob Brier].

Question. Bowls of milk - all year round?

Question 2. Where?

Only when ALL the available information is accessed - that ''inner'' one {mind set?} as well as the obvious - will true answers be found.

"It was a profoundly stirring experience to find, at the source of the Nile, this reminder of the ancient Egyptian conception of Osiris, Horus and Set. Here, evidently, was a primordial African experience that had flowed down to the coasts of the Mediterranean along with the sacred waters of the Nile: adhista, the rising sun, the principle of light like Horus; together with ayik, the principle of darkness....In the simple rites performed for the 'dead' the laibon's words and his sprinkling of milk UNITE the opposites...." [Page 297 same book].

Question. Where would that be represented in {say} a landscape?

"Ancient Egyptian culture and philosophy is crucial to the understanding of world history and spirituality. One of the misconceptions which is still promoted and prevalent in modern times is that Egypt is not a part of, or located on, the continent of Africa. Rather, it is espoused that Egypt is in the Middle East. This information is incorrect, as Egypt is where it always has been located, though in history it extended beyond its current margins, in the N/E corner of the Africa Continent. Further, it is widely believed by others that even though Egypt may be in Africa, that it was not an African country, and still others may agree that it was an African country, but not originally founded and populated by ''black'' African people [like present day Algeria, which is in Africa but populated by Middle Easterners - Arabs]. These errors must be redressed in order for humanity to move forward. Truth must be promoted, and in this case, it is crucial that this particular truth be brought forth into our human sphere of knowledge, as it offers a chance to humanity for achieving some level of peace and harmony as a world community. Also it will promote the redemption of African culture and thereby uplift African society and thereby the world. Africa provides a common ground, literally and figuratively, for humanity to come together, if we so choose, as both the physical origins of modern day humans is rooted in African soil, and also the spiritual roots of all religions and spiritual traditions can be traced there as well. Most of the wars that have occurred in human history after the close of Ancient Egyptian history have been due to religious differences, especially between orthodox [exo-teric] aspects of the three major religions - Christianity , Islam and Judaism - and the various subgroups of religions to which they each have given rise. Yet, all of these religions, and as we shall see, all spiritual traditions of the world, have their birthplace in Kamit. They are as if children and grandchildren of the Kamitan language..."

Saturn is one of the names of 'Satan', the spirit of opposition, and creation myths all over the world preserve a memory of these events in the stories of Saturn oppressing Mother Earth and the Sun god then vanquishing the 'monster'.

Side note: "Amenhotep, son of Hapu, renewed and in his own time used what Imhotep passed on, inscribing in monuments the proportions and functions particular to the current phase and his king's symbolic role.

But this great individuals mission outlasted the temporal - for Imhotep and Amenhotep son of Hapu, are forever the two pillars of our wisdom." ['Her-Bak'].

Her-Bak = Horus face. Try ''face'' in relation to ''profile''.

"Man contains the divine spark within him. Therefore the transcendent principles are always given human form. There is a subtle yet important distinction between this Egyptian practice and the Greek - which at first glance may seem similar. Greece cut the 'gods' down to human size and depicted them with typically ungodlike behaviour. Egypt started with the concept of divine attributes within man. The gods are not brought down to earth, rather man is raised to the gods {bottom up?}. And so, the transcendent gods, those who command creation itself - Tum, Atum, Ptah, Amon, Min {Ra in his generative role} - are always in human form." [Page 133 'Serpent in the Sky'. Excludes parenthesis].

Side note: "....Isis had to set out again on her travels, accompanied this time by her darker - skinned sister Nepthys. She transformed herself into a 'dog', the better to seek out and dig up the parts of the corpse. Eventually they assembled them all {i.e.,the parts of Osiris buried by Seth} - and took them to the island of Abydos. There Isis bound the 'parts' together with a strip of white linen and brought just enough life back into her 'husband' so that he was able to 'impregnate' her. She was now carrying Horus - the future Sun god. Today Horus is known to many Children as Jack, because, like Jack, the story of Horus's battle with the 'giant' Seth would also come down to us as a fairy tale. Because he would return to overthrow his gigantic uncle and rule as king of the gods, we know Horus as Jack the Giant Killer." [Same book, i.e.,J. Black].

"The word 'Hotep' was fashioned by the indigenous Africans of antiquity living along the Nile Valley who are commonly referred to today as Nubians, Kushites, Ethiopians, Egyptians and Sudanese. However, it was the civilisation of Nubia that gave birth to the language of the Metu Neter or 'Words of God', otherwise known as hieroglyphics {hiero = sacred} +{ glyphs = writings}. And it is in this language of Metu Neter that the word 'Hotep' has been preserved." Back cover, same book. Try ''logos''.

The word 'hotep' is generally translated as 'peace', but when translated to Schwaller de Lubicz's kind of translation it takes on a richer significance for htp is the reverse of Ptah, creator of form, and refers in this sense to realization or completion - of which 'peace' is but an aspect. Ptahhotep means 'realization of the work of Ptah'..." [Page 100 'Serpent in the Sky' / J. West].

And/or: Hotepsekhemwy - Wikipedia

The Horus name of Hotepsekhemwy is the subject of particular interest to Egyptologists and historians, as it may hint at the turbulent politics of the time. The Egyptian word "Hotep" means "peaceful" and "to be pleased" though it can also mean "conciliation" or "to be reconciled", too. So Hotepsekhemwy's full name may be read as "the two powers are reconciled" or "pleasing in powers", which suggests a significant political meaning. In this sense, "the two powers" could be a reference to Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt as well as to the major deities Horus and Seth.[1][10][11]

 

 

From the reign of Hotepsekhemwy onward it became a tradition to write the Horus name and the nebty name in the same way. It is thought that some kind of philosophic background affected that choice, since the Horus name reveals a clearly defined, symbolic meaning in its translation. Horus- and nebty names being the same might also indicate, that the Horus name was adopted after ascending the throne." Try ''philosophy'' its ancient meaning.

AND/OR: {as one example}: "One of the more intriguing debates in Egyptology during recent years has been the identity of the mysteries folk known as the Shemsu-Hor, variously translated as 'The Followers of Horus', 'The Companions of Horus', 'The Worshipers of Horus', 'Those who know the Path of Horus', or 'Those who Know the Secrets of Horus'. We encountered the Shemsu-Hor in an earlier chapter, where the Egyptians referred to them as 'divine' rulers in mythical, pre-dynastic times...enlightened individuals, initiates in the science of astronomy, whose purpose was 'to bring to fruition a great and cosmic blueprint'..." ['The Phoenix Solution' / A. Alford].

'The fruit of ones labours'?

AND/OR {in relation to ''astronomy''}: "Thus, the means to understanding 'spiritual' processes in the Hermetic system follows the ancient tradition that knowledge of the Sacred Astronomy - the appearances and movements of the planets and stars - is a prerequisite to gnosis. Egyptian symbolism is fundamentally triune, and cosmic families {Horus?} are drawn from multiples {families?} of 'three'...{Khufu/Khafre/etc?}. Alternatively, Hermetic teachings emphasize a septenary structure on all levels of natural life. In that system, the great scale of cosmic manifestations is symbolised by the classic seven planets, their 'rays' representing 'seven' planes of vibration in a universal order. The Hermetic Scale was believed to contain the master key to all organic life: 'There are seven wandering stars which circle at the threshold of Olympus, and among them ever revolves unending Time. The 'seven' are these: night shining Moon, all sullen Saturn, the glad Sun, the fertile Venus, the bold Mars, the swift-wing Mercury, the first author {Logos?} of all births Jupiter. To those same stars is assigned the race of men, for we have in us {Horus ''in'' the horizon?} Moon, Jupiter, Mars, Venus, Saturn, Sun, and Mercury. Ours tears are Saturn, birth is Jupiter, speech is Mercury, anger is Mars, the Moon is sleep, Venus is desire, and the Sun is laughter...The divine function of three is also embedded in the sacred astronomy...{by way of} analogies and signatures - the Sages guide to making him a Magnus...."

Athene/Jupiter in relation to Homers Iliad....as a means...?

njuA work in progress? "Endorsement of the view that the planets visible to the naked eye were represented by the gods came about in an unusual way. After two years cataloguing the Leigh papers, we began, warily at first, to derive astronomical images from the narrative. One of the first came from a few words in Book 1 that record the return of the gods after a few days feasting in Ethiopia: 'The immortal gods came back in a body {at dawn} to Olympus, and Zeus led the way.' An image was created of Homer describing a time when the crescent moon and the five planets visible with the naked eye could be seen close together in the sky at dawn and rising towards the zenith of the heavens, the domain of Zeus. Our inquiry into whether such a conjunction of planets is rare or common were not at first successful, but eventually the happy chance of reading an article in an astronomy magazine showed that such a conjunction on the 5th march 1953 BC had been recorded in an ancient Chinese text and had so impressed Chinese astronomers that it was used as a new starting point for their calendar. That conjunction would also have been visible from Greece {Egypt?}. In fact researchers Kevin D. Pang and John A. Banqert discovered that the five naked-eye planets had been in the sky for some days before that date, and on 26th February 1953 BC their alignment had been closer than at any time in the past six millennia. But extra significance was given to the conjunction when the new moon joined the planetary grouping at dawn on 5th March, thus adding the goddess Hera to the planets representing by Athene, Aphrodite, Poseidon, Ares and Apollo. Although they differ in literal expression, a number of translations of this event from the Iliad reflect similar astronomical images - That the gods returned in 'a line' or 'a cortege' or 'are forever all in one company'. A literal translation from the Greek texts says: 'From that {time} became the TWELFTH DAWN, then indeed to Olympus went all the ever-being gods, all at the same time and Zeus led. Whether the conjunction described by Homer is the same one that so influenced the Chinese may never be known, but so rare are such events that it is possible that it was, and had remained alive in popular memory in Greece {Egypt?} though being preserved in allegory."

This is also an astrological cycle of death and renewal on some level of human experience, and tradition propounds that this cycle is the true chronometer of a single human generation {''120''? i.e.,4x3}. But even if these tenets of astrology are discounted, records reveal that the rituals were timed by the 'Maa' {seers of the temple}, those belonging to the tradition of the Solar priesthood who were observers and interpreters of stars. One of Imhotep's epithets was 'Chief of the Observers', a title of the High priest of Heliopolis who advised the Royal House on significant cosmic events such as the Saturn cycle of return."

Refresher: "One of the points that require investigation, is the connection between the vision of the merkabah and the year, month, and day, and also the place of the 'vision'.

kiuythAnd/or: Something to ponder on: "Number 70 of the Welsh Triads names Modron as Urien of Rhedged’s wife, the mother of twins Owein and Morfudd. It names Afallach as her father. He ruled Ynys Afallach, the Isles of Avalon.
In another, more detailed version of the story Modron is a mysterious woman who appears at Rhyd y Cyfarthfa (The Ford of Barking). It gets its name because although Modron is invisible, the dogs gather to bark at this mysterious apparition. In this version Urien of Rheged happens along and unlike other men who shun the place from fear, approaches the mystery woman and has his way with her. The Koch and Carey translation of this story (369) says: In Denbighshire [in North Wales], there is a parish that is called Llan-verrys, and its there that one will find Ryd-y-gyfarthfa [‘Ford of the Barking’]. And in former times, the dogs from the whole county used to come to that ford to bark, and no one dared to go to see what was the matter until Urien of Rhedged came. And when he came to the bank of the ford, he saw nothing but a young woman washing. And then the dogs ceased their barking. And Urien grabbed hold of the girl, and he had sexual intercourse with her. And then she said, ‘God’s blessing on the feet that brought you here.’

‘Why?’ said he. ‘Because I was fated to wash here until I get a son by a Christian. And I am the daughter of the king of Annwvyn [the Un-world]. Come here at the end of the year and you will get the boy.’ And so he came and he got the son there and a daughter, none other than Owein son of Urien and Morfyd daughter of Urien. (The Onomastic Tale of Ryd-y-gyfarthfa).
The part about the therapeutic rape is obviously a male fantasy twist. Not only is he doing her a favour by raping her, he’s extremely potent too. Although I suppose that if you’re Modron, you’re probably programmed to conceive.
Images and inscriptions featuring a single Mother (see Matres below) turn up in Caerwent, in Wales, and Cirencester, which is near the Welsh border. The Caerwent one is a statue with ears of grain and fruit, which suggests a fertilty or harvest goddess. (Alternatively, the ear of corn may be a palm leaf, which would link her to Victoria)."

The names Jehovah and Elohim were then associated as equals - and the two lights were dignified with the same name: Mazpaz Mapaz….the two lights rose simultaneously and were of the same dignity. But the moon humbled herself by diminishing her light, and renounced her place of higher rank. From that time she has had no light of her own, but derives her light from the sun. Nevertheless, her real light is greater than that which she radiates here below; for a woman enjoys no honour save in conjunction with her husband. The great light {the sun} has the name Jehovah and the lessor light {the moon} has the name Elohim - {I.e., EL being the dominion of the day - IM being the dominion of the night - and HE in the middle being the remainder of the forces {the 'stars'}, participating in both dominions} - which is the last of the degrees and the 'close' of thought {YHV?}. Originally she was inscribed above among the letters of the sacred name {YHVH}….All of these things, although presented to us in mythological 'clothing', relate to the profound reality of the relationship of intelligence and wisdom, and their union - intuition....The spiritual moon is therefore the 'sun that shines at midnight'...."

"It was of course, a normal procedure for late mediaeval buildings to be constructed according to what are now called 'foundation charts', reflecting astrological principles. The evidence for this 1207 chart would suggest however, that the use of these astrological principles is a little earlier than is generally realised...The planetary tables for the year 1207 show that on 28th May there was a momentous event in the heavens. On the morning of that day, as the sun rose over Florence, there was a ''gathering'' of no fewer than five planets in the constellation Taurus.

On that day, the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Saturn were all gathering within a few degrees of each other in the asterism of the Bull. This particular stellium in Taurus is very rare, and will not be repeated for thousands of years...." ['The Secret Zodiac'].

Try ''Gathering'' IN relation to those {principles?}, that those 'planets' REPRESENT. If only in defining a 'mind set' {foundation?}. Start in Part 1.

''Taurus is 'ruled' by Venus." As a means...?

Hapi

Hapi HapiHapi (Hep, Hap, Hapy) was a water and fertility god who was popular throughout Ancient Egypt. It is thought that his name was originally the predynastic name for the Nile. however, by the Dynastic period the Nile was known as "iterw" ("the river") and the word was used to refer to the god of the Nile (the name "Nile" derives from the Greek word "Neilos" which was a corruption of the Egyptian word "nwy", meaning "water"). He was worshiped throughout Egypt, but was particularly popular around Aswan and Gebel El-Silisila.

SIDE NOTE: "Oh waters, you are my friend./ You carry me in your bosom. You fill me with strength. You surround me, you guide me. Oh waters, Oh waters...These power songs remind shamans...." ['Secrets of Shamanism'].

A ''reminding'' of what?

Follow the title of the book to 'see' it from a different perspective. Yet still containing those universal constants. Question. What does that imply?

Hapi was the patron of Upper and Lower Egypt. In this capacity he was described as twin deities named Hap-Reset (Upper Egypt) and Hap-Meht (Lower Egypt). These deities were depicted either pouring water from a jug (representing the innundation) or tying together the heraldic plants of Upper and Lower Egypt (the papyrus and the lotus respectively) in a knot which resembled the hieroglyphic word "sema" ("joined"). This role, together with his connection with the Nile and the innundation, made him one of the most popular and powerful deities of Ancient Egypt and yet no temple {pillar?} has been discovered which was specifically dedicated to him.

One of the oldest references to Hapi is in the Pyramid Texts of Unas. Hapi (here called Hep) is linked to the Nome of Kenset (including the First Cataract and the islands of Elephantine, Sahel, Philae, and others) and to (Wepwawet (the opener of the ways).

The texts implore Hapi and Wepwawet send a good innundation. According to myth, the river flowed from Hapi´s home (near the First Cataract) through the heavens and the land of the dead before emerging from a cave somewhere in the mountains. The innundation was referred to as the "Arrival of Hapi" and during the flood the Egyptians would place statues of the god in the towns and cities so that they could implore his assistance at that time. They would throw offerings into the river at places sacred to the god in order to ensure the innundation was not too low (leaving insufficient water for the crops) or too high (risking the destruction of their mud-brick homes).

The gods Khnum, Anqet and Satet were the guardians of the source of the Nile who ensured that the correct amount of silt was left by the waters, but Hapi controlled the water itself. He was also associated with the Delta and given the epithet "Lord of the Fishes and Birds of the Marshes".

As a god of water, he was often associated with Nun (the personification of the primeaval waters of chaos in the Ogdoad theology from Heliopolis) and was described as the husband of Naunet (Nun´s wife and female aspect). Because the sun god (Ra or Atum) emerged from the waters of Nun on the first day of creation, Hapi was sometimes considered to be the father of the sun god and therefore the father of all life forms. It is probably because of these solar connections that Akhenaten did not reject hapi along with Amun and the majority of the other gods, instead describing him as an incarnation of The Aten

Side note: "The manifestation of Atum-Ra between the twin peaks of the mountain of the horizon." [Picture of same, page 256 'Temple of the Cosmos].

'Mountain' / 'cave' ?

Continued: He was also associated with Osiris because of his link to the Nile and fertility. As a result, Isis was sometimes considered to be his female counterpart or his wife. The Pyramid Texts make it clear that many of the ancient goddesses (for example Mut) were linked with Hapi as aspects of Isis. He was also the husband of Nekhebet in Upper Egypt and Wadjet in Lower Egypt, both goddesses were at times associated with Isis.

Hapi was depicted as a plump man with large breasts and blue or green skin wearing the false beard of the pharaoh. The female breasts and his skin colour are a reminder that he is a fertility god, while the false beard reaffirms his link to the pharaoh. As the patron of Upper and Lower Egypt and so was often depicted as twin deities; Hap-Reset who wears the papyrus of Upper Egypt on his headdress and Hap-Meht who wears the lotus of Lower Egypt on his headdress. When he is depicted as a single god he often carries both the papyrus and lotus. [ www.ancientegyptonline.co.uk ].

"Meriones gave Odysseus a bow, a quiver and a sword, and put a cleverly made leather helmet on his head. On the inside there was a strong lining on interwoven straps , onto which a felt cap had been sewn in. The outside was cleverly adorned all around with rows of white tusks from a shinny tooth boar, the tusks running in alternate directions in each row." [Homer's Iliad]. Question. 'Straps' in relation to ''Horn of Plenty'' ? and/or ''Hoar way''? and/or ''high on the hog''?

"Poseidon had gone to visit the Ethiopians worlds away. Ethiopians off at the farthest limits of mankind, a people split in two; one part where the Sungod sets and part where the Sungod rises. There Poseidon went to receive an offering, bulls and rams by the hundred - far away at the feast, the Sea-Lord sat and took his pleasure." [From Book 1 'The Odyssey'. Translation by R. "Fagles].

N.B. Poseidon = the common factor between BOTH books. The foundation {twelve?} of something? Coincidence or a meaningful one? Try ''girdle'' to understand {determine/estimate?} the possible beginning {start point?} of something.

Side note?..."Bootes as the Herdsman {'Ox driver'} of the heavens is an ancient concept, and, in identifying this constellation with Odysseus, Homer acknowledges this pastoral association when he describes the Greek warrior stalking 'in front of the ranks as it were some great wholly ram ordering his ewes'. There are also geographical links between the shape of Bootes and the homelands of Odysseus in the islands of the Ionian Sea...The upper part of his helmet is identifiable as a shallow dome of faint stars in the head of Bootes...One of the outstanding features of Bootes is the staff that points towards the north celestial pole and at the time in which the Iliad is set pointed towards the declining pole star Thuban {Draconis}." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

''Of his main themes, [in relation to Ibn Al-Arabi's works] the one that predominates over the rest and to which they are subordinate is that of the Oneness of Being. The concept of the Oneness of Being is an all embracing one, in that all of Al-Arabis other concepts are but facets of it, facets of a single and unique reality, the seamless garment of Being, whose reality underlies all derivative being and its experience.''

"Quite independent of Judeo-Christian tradition, Muslim Kurds revere Bingol Mountain as the site of another heavenly, paradisiacal fountain of great renown. Here is to be found Ma'ul Hayat, the Fountain of Life, the waters of which can rejuvenate 'youth' and provide everlasting life. According to popular legend, Alexander the Great {the 'horned one' or 'two horned' - a reference to the ram horns on his helmet} traveled to the 'land of darkness,' beyond the setting sun, in search of the Fountain of Life, which was said to exist 'in the north, beneath the pole star'. His guide and vizier on the journey was a mysterious al-Khidr, a wise man; however when they came to a fork in the road, both men went in different directions. Only al-Khidr found the Fountain of Life and drinking from its waters..." [From the book 'Gobekli-tepe'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Try ''fountain'' and especially ''Khidr'' to understand what is being implied. Can you 'see' what the author of the above book cannot as yet 'see'? Enlarged elsewhere.

Elephants, they say, never forget. From those things they are taught at a 'young' age. 'Returning' every year to the same old haunts, especially in relation to water. Matriarchs leading the way. That knowledge that becomes 'instinctive', intuitive, the more it is applied day by day. It keeps mind/body/soul alive. The gateway to heart and soul. Thinking [or Phrygian] cap time.

Something to ponder on: "But the Demeter-Kore myth is far to feminine to have been merely the result of an anima-projection. Although the anima can, as we have said, experiences herself in Demeter Kore, she is yet of a wholly different nature. She is in the highest degree 'femme a homme'....whereas Demeter-Kore exists on the plane of mother/daughter experience, which is alien to man and shuts him out. In fact, the psychology of the Demeter cult bears all the features of a matriarch order of society, where the man is an indispensable, but on the whole disturbing factor." [Page177  'Science of Mythology'].

Try Animus in the micro sense of the word. Question. What about in the Macro sense of the word?

''The great Wheel turned upon itself. The seven lessor wheels rushed into being. They revolve like their Mother, around, within and forward. All that existeth was. The wheels were diverse, and in unification, one. As evolved the great Wheel, the inner 'fire' burst forth. It touched into life wheel the first. It circulated....." [Stanza Three. From the book 'A Treatise on Cosmic Fire' / A. Bailey].

"Demeter and Kore, mother and daughter, extend the feminine consciousness both upwards and downwards. They add an ''older and younger'' ''stronger and weaker'' dimension to it and widen out{N/S?} the narrowly limited conscious mind bound in space and time {E/W?}, giving it intimations of a greater and more comprehensive personality which has a share  in the eternal course of things. We can hardly suppose that myth and mystery were invented for any conscious purpose; it seems much more likely that they were the involuntary revelation of a psychic, but unconscious, pre-condition." [Page 162].

And/or: "This sculpture known as the Swimming Reindeer, was created at least 13,000 years ago...Its carved from the tip of a mammoth tusk and shows a male and female reindeer with their heads raised and legs extended. The depiction is remarkable in its naturalism...The fragility of the connection between the two halves shows that it was not a practical object but rather a masterpiece of figurative art. Its significance to the people who created it remains a mystery to archaeologists.
