deer"Life was good for the hunter gatherers. Palaeolithic hunter gathering people didn't suffer from famine and malnutrition like the Neolithic farming tribes that followed them... Archaeological evidence from the Dordogne region of France shows they used lunar calendars giving the phases of the moon. Solar calendars do not appear until the Neolithic period...The hunter-gatherer affluence came about because they needed very little in the material sense in order to be content and produce beautiful art - which is an expression of a deep philosophy..." ['Elen of the Ways' / E. Sentier].

Question. Philosophy of what? In the 'intuitive' sense of the word or in the scholarly sense. Think about it in relation to that ''bit''. Something {experienced?} internally that needed an external expression for it - in the natural order of things - in order to assimilate it. Hindsight/foresight by way of the subjective/objective process? Could that lead to an answer as a 'difference' between Neanderthals and Cro Magnon man? and as to why one outlasted the other? Enlarged elsewhere.

Among others try ''deer'' and ''horn'' before allowing those first impressions to {dictate?} something else. Begin in Part 2.

caps"Semantically, we perceive elephants in terms of their ivory [Greek elephos]. In Sanskrit, however, 'hasta' is ''hand'' and hasti, meaning 'the creature with the hand', is the elephant {the trunk being the hand}... Whence from the Hindustani comes the Anglo-Indian 'hatty' for an elephant...Tennyson, in 'Merlin and Vivien', wrote of elephants; 'serpent hands'...The Roman etymologist Varro in the 1st century B.C. - wondered why the elephant was known as the 'Luca bos', in which 'bos' is ''ox'' but 'Luca' possibly ''light'' from 'lux'...It is curious that Varro didn't refer to the elephants in the triumphal march after Caesar's conquest of Gaul [58-51 BC]. Suetonius wrote that Caesar - 'ascended the Capital by the light of forty elephants on the right and left bearing lamps [Lychni]'. Andrea Mantegna, in his painting commonly known as 'The Elephants' [c. 1500-1506], showed three elephants; preceded by an ordinary bos, or ox; with garlands on their heads and tall flickering torches mounted on their backs. If this doesn't provide an etymology 'light oxen' it does at least suggest that Caesar was following the logic of such an etymology." [Taken from the book 'The Book of Babel'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Question. Did Caesar know something? The tail end of something begins {the process?} of something else? As with the 'tail' end of a 'dog' and/or 'bear' ? Try 'Homer's Secret Iliad'.

The author therefore attempting to speculate on the possible connection between ''elephant'' and the ''ox'' or Great Bear {by way of ''the Plough'' constellation}. North in relation to South?

llll

One of many 'BOG MEN' found in marshes/fenland. An initiate? Headgear optional? Calf skin?

Analogy?..."Since the days of antiquity, observers of the skies around the world have arranged stars into patterns, and always for the same reasons - to bring order and understanding to the heavens. Some groups of stars are so striking that they have been seen in a similar way in cultures widely separated in distance and time. A common strand of human thought is seen, for instance, in the way in which three different societies perceived the shape of the seven best known stars of Ursa Major that are predominately known today as the 'Plough' or 'Big Dipper'. In Homeric astronomy they represent the wain or wagon on which King Priam took Hector's body back to Troy. Edna Leigh wrote: ' Among the Arabians, the Big Dipper represents a bier and mourners. The four stars which form the wagon or cart represent the bier, and those in the handle are the mourners'. A similar funereal image was seen by the Sioux, native American Indians." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Death / rebirth? Represented with Achilles friend - 'Phoenix' of the Iliad ? Recall what Achilles represents.

Question. ''order and understanding to the heavens'' = the very first representation of it? i.e.,from the 'oral' tradition? Therefore ''top/down''. Think about it relation to the Nazca Lines as 'seen from that monument {top of?} on the opposite side of the river'. Bottom/up? That desert {wilderness?} where no rain falls.

SIDE NOTE: "Icknield Way - no one has a clue what it means. Some say from the word ''Iceni'' - others from the ancient word ''oxen'' - the Oxen Way. But what i love, is the fact that we have this roadway snaking through all these counties, but at its heart is a mystery that none of us can decode." [ Quote from the narrator of 'Britains Ancient Tracks']. Enlarged elsewhere.

Side note {and/or refresher}: "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...?

The Icknield Way - that follows a chalk line. Why. What does 'chalk' represent. If only within this subject? Question. Which came first. Subject material or landscape or put another way - the ox or the cart? East-West? IF SO - what would S/N be represented by?

jjj

''Symbol of the lower WILL is the altar'' {Kit's Coty House?}. Where would 'higher' be represented, {and what with}??

Side note: These interruptions in the chalk are wide valley mouths, which in effect are but enormous funnels marking the confluence of the gathering tributaries from the watersheds in the Weald, whereupon they muster enough force to cut corridors through the chalk, downland to reach the Kent coastal plains and the Thames estuary. The first of these breaks in the chalk escarpment is the breach cut by the river Stout on its way to Canterbury, and the second and much wider breach is known as the Medway Gap...In the Medway Gap, not only do we find evidence of prehistoric settlers that may have been frequent users of the North Downs trackways, but we also find a concentration of the structures that they built to house their dead...It is pertinent to the Pilgrims Way story that the seven Medway megaliths - chambered tombs, found close to the North Down trackway - are considered by some to be the most important of the British Neolithic...they may have held a wider significance than simply being burial sites, although archaeologists are unsure of the meaning they hold...These megaliths of sarsen stones are the remains of the architecture that formed numerous long barrows...FOUR on the east side of the river Medway and THREE on the west side {'three and four'?}…." [Pages 24/25/31 'The Pilgrims Way' / Derek Bright].

Refresher: 'One often sees great things from the valley, only small things from the summit. Actually, come to think of it, the whole mystery of life lies within that one word. 'Seeing'!..''

Follow the title of the book to 'see' it in its {watershed'?} context.

tf

As seen from a different perspective. Across the sea?

Side note: "The key essential element for growth has always been change {via motion}, and so we must, if we wish to grow, constantly strive to escape from the comfortable congestion of our daily lives - we must attempt to climb into a ''larger box'' {chamber?} whenever we can, like a snake shedding its skin through successive cycles of growth....We must actively think our way out, and the best way to do that is to constantly question - to test and probe the 'concreteness' of our world....We are engulfed in a sea of mystery which is normally never thought about or considered due to the well constructed walls of our defences." [Page 18 of the book by D. Monroe].

Try Static/dynamic as a means....?

And/or: "The structures are particularly unusual for the enormity of there chambers. It is also noteworthy that this small area had the highest density of such structures found in the south of England outside of Salisbury Plain. Paul Ashbee noted that: 'The Kentish sarsen stones, mostly upon Blue bell Hill were, as they are now sorely depleted, the largest southern English concentration of such stones, apart from Northern Wiltshire'...'' [Page 26, same book}.

Hare Bell?

Try ''Bluestar'' or ''Morning Glory''.

aurochPresent day analogy? Items found in 'pits' at the double henge recently discovered at Bulford - opposite Woodhenge, i.e.,east as opposed to west. With a river in the 'middle'. Axe heads and chalk balls found in most but in some the bones {leg/thigh?} of the prehistoric Auroch were found. The etymology of which links to both the German and British ''oxen.'' Such quotes are made by the narrators Alice Roberts and Phil Harding as: ''Putting one {i.e.,axe head} in a pit seems like a huge sacrifice." and/or ''To throw away a perfectly good axe. Why do it?'' and/or " Not on the average take away menu.'' {In reference to the Auroch bones}. Also found in one of the henges the large skull of a dog or wolf. ['Digging for Britain'. Episode 1]. All enlarged elsewhere.

REFRESHER: ''The cheerful brilliance of the morning lent youth to Earth's old bones, touched the peak with gold, gleamed along the river and put the gardens en fete..." ['Her-Bak']. Try ''horn'' {i.e.,Al-Qurn].

Analogy: {and/or: something hinted at}: "To get a clear view will require a lot of hard work, for in one sense you will be embarking {'harbour'?} on a voyage of discovery, climbing a new peak of personal experience, and that is no easy task." [Page 12 from the book by Marian Green].

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

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

Refresher: "To sacrifice a 'lower' value to a 'higher' value is to give substance and power to the desire which has been 'sacrificed'. If this higher value is of a 'spiritual' order, the spiritual power is attracted by this desire, and givers to the sacrificer a power of domination over his lower states." ['Journey into the Light'].

"In basic form an altar is simply a table; a focus of consciousness."

"The altar of sacrifice demonstrates that where your treasure is there will your heart be also."

Among others try ''Axe'' / ''Labyrinth'' - all as an external expression of something internal?

As is: ''Her new husband will be the suiter who wins her in a sporting contest - involving archery and 12 axe heads. Whoever could string Odysseus's great bow and then fire an arrow through the 12 axe heads would win her 'hand' in marriage." ['Gods and Monsters: Homer's Odyssey / Simon Armitage].

Mind set?

Benjem Stark? {Game of Thrones}.

As an example: "I have mentioned the fact of the three axes of the Temple, but not the significance of them. An axis is an imaginary and ideal line about which a moving body revolves; in geometry, an axis is equally imaginary, a line without thickness, an abstract moment. The axis is 'occult', immaterial, a mental point of reference. It is an invention of man designed to make the principle of the axis comprehensible to our reason. Esoterically, the axis represents the Absolute, the still center of all movement throughout the universe, from atoms to Galaxies." [Page 181 'Serpent in the Sky'].

To understand the above generalisation of information - which the above author uses constantly throughout his book - try ''horizontal/vertical'' in the external sense of the word and ''yoke'' in the internal sense - in order to ''get ones head'' around that mind set. But most important of all - ALL IN RELATION TO THAT UNIVERSAL ''bit''.

Stonehenge-woodhenge-Bulford = an 'arc' shape - like the crescent of a moon? More importantly N/E - S/W. Hence the reason ''openings to the North'' if only in the construction {development?} -- in its early stages {'elder'?}. Just as the same with all those monuments on the Giza complex.

Side note: ''North is the quarter associated with Law {Moses link?}, the Element of Earth, powers of purification, reflection, and 'death'." ['The Prophetic Vision of Merlin'].

Question. IF north = 'Law' - then south = 'Grace'?

S/W or S/E?

Continued: "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''. ['Book of Babel'].

'Eleven' relative to 'twelve' relative to 'thirteen' with an understanding in mind. Representational of. And/or...

''Eleventh hour'' in relation to ''noon'' = an impending result - one way of the other = 'high noon'? {i.e.,zenith}.

Refresher: 'The Twelve Keys' by Basil Valentine. [Chapter thirteen 'The Chemistry of Alchemy' / Cobb/Fetterolf/Goldwhite]. See it?

'The White {chalk} Horse'. Question. What does the 'horse' represent?

"...But as soon as something happens which does arouse and challenge us, our previous and unnoticed passions immediately break out like uncontrolled horses that have long been kept unexercised and idle..." ['The Philokalia'].

right2

Pulling something?

A {working?} example in the 'Micro' sense of the 'word': "Possibility is one thing, and the realization of the possibility is quite a different thing. Let us now try to see what this possibility depends upon and what its realization means.' Then G. repeated briefly all that had been said before about the 'structure' of man and the world. He drew the diagram of the ray {key} of creation and the diagram of the four {key} bodies of man. But in relation to the four bodies of man he introduced a detail which he had not mentioned before. He again used the Eastern comparison of man with a 'carriage', a 'horse', a 'driver', and 'master' {''teacher'' link} - and drew the diagram with one addition that was not there before. 'Man is a complex organization,' he said, 'consisting of four parts which may be connected or unconnected, or badly connected. The carriage is connected with the horse by shafts, the horse is connected to the driver by reins, and the driver is connected to the master by the master's voice. But the driver must hear and understand the master's voice. He must know how to drive and the horse must be trained to obey the reins. As to the relation between the horse and the carriage, the horse must be properly harnessed. Thus there are 'three' connections between the 'four' sections of this complex organization. If something is lacking in one of the connections, the 'organization' cannot act as a single whole...

Side note: " A few years later he [Wolfgang Pauli] was to come across the same numbers again in Carl Jung's psychology, based as it was in alchemy. He was adamant that ''in neither case was it by any means Mr. C. Jung who suggested it to me, nor was there an advance conscious intention for me to grapple with figuring out the problem of three and four. Consequently i am rather certain that objectively there is an important psychological and, perhaps, natural philosophical problem connected with these numbers." Enlarged elsewhere.

Refresher: " I make no secret whatsoever of the fact that my rather revolutionary model of the atom came to me in a dream.'' Niels Bohr.

And/or: "An atom is a moment of equilibrium. So is a cat. Equilibrium is a state in which positive and negative forces are balanced. Modern science with its doctrine of entropy and negative entropy, expresses the principle without recognizing its functional significance. The Western astrological zodiac expresses the principle both precisely and completely. Libra, The Balance, is the seventh sign. Seven signifies {symbolizes?} the union of spirit and matter - of Three and Four. One of the forms that traditionally expresses the meaning of Seven is the pyramid - square base symbolizing four elements and the triangular sides the three modes of spirit." ['Serpent in the Sky'].

''A sign for Libra represents the setting sun. This was the land of Hyperborean, which was north of the Danube's source, and was the great center of the cult of Boreas, the north wind. The golden apples of Hera are the stars." [Page 53/54 'Pathways to the Zodiac'].

chalkContinued..."The connections are therefore no less important than the actual 'bodies'. Working on himself man works simultaneously on the 'bodies' and on the 'connections'. Work on oneself must begin with the driver. The driver is the mind. In order to hear the 'masters' voice, the driver, first of all, must not be 'asleep', that is, he must wake up. Then it may prove that the master speaks a language that the 'driver' does not understand. The driver must learn this language. When he has learned it, he will understand the 'master'. But concurrently with this he must learn to 'drive' the horse, to harness it to the carriage, to 'feed' and 'groom' it, and to keep the carriage in order...The horse is our emotions. The carriage is the body. The mind must learn to control the emotions. The emotions always pulls the body after them. This is the order in which work on oneself must proceed. But observe again that work on the 'bodies', that is, the driver, the horse, and the carriage, is one thing. And work on the 'connections', that is, on the drivers understanding, which unites him to the master; on the reins, which connect him with the horse, and on the 'shafts' {yoke} and the 'harness', which connect the horse with the carriage - is quite another thing." ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

"Symbolically, the number three refers to the establishment of a relationship between two previously unrelated or opposing principles...'Understanding' is an emotional, rather than an intellectual, function. It comes from the heart rather than the head. We could say that the number 'three' is a quality of the soul {'carriage'?} rather than of the spirit. The more we understand, the more we are able to reconcile and relate." Continued elsewhere. [Page 122, 'Mapping the Psyche' volume 1. C. Martin].

bootes1

Refresher: "Bootes as the Herdsman {'Ox Driver'} of the heavens is an ancient concept..."

A working {oxen?} example - but now in the 'Macro' sense of the 'word': "Other aspects of the constellation directed her eyes to the coastline, to Mount Ossa and to Mount Pelion, while its strangely shaped 'head' and 'legs' projected an image of the Bay of Pegasus itself. She then turned to the Catalogue of Ships. Of the region surrounding the Bay of Pegasus, Homer says the regiment of men came from 'Pherae and the populous city of Iolcus', and they were led by Eumelus. She delved into the Iliad for other references to Eumelus, and discovered that the descriptive narrative she found could be linked to the visual qualities of Pegasus and its relationship to adjacent constellations. Eumelus is famous for his 'matched' pair of horses, described thus: 'Eumelus mares were foremost in the chase, fierce in the fight their nostrils breathed a flame. Their height, their colour, and their age the same.' The E. V. Rieu translation says that the horses were joined by a yoke that was as true as a plumb line. A modern chart of the constellations shows that two of the brightest stars nhuin Pegasus {Scheat/Markab} are indeed the same colour and brightness. What is more, when the constellation is at its highest point as it crosses the sky Scheat lies almost directly north of Markab in the Square of Pegasus and an imaginary line drawn from them down to the earth {'horizontal'} - would make an angle of almost 90 degrees. Later we were to find evidence of the astronomical association of Eumelus, when during the funeral games in Book 23, his yoke breaks...Scheat {one end of the yoke} is a variable star that can be seen with the naked eye - which is identified, by Homer, as the 'snapping yoke'...Eumelus then tumbles from his chariot and falls beneath its wheel - {represented?} with ''the Circlet of Pisces that lies below Pegasus in the sky." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

nhy

The Corona Borealis is Caer Arianrhod whose secret citadel is the tower of initiation. Ruler of the heavens and indicator of our true north is Arthur's Wain, or the Great Bear. And, because no king can travel without his poet, LYRA is the Harp of Arthur, Telyn Arthur. Taliesin, the supreme seer-poet, has his dwelling in the region of the ''Summer Stars''. [Page 13 'Mabon and the Mysteries of Britain'].

N.B. Picture = Northern Crown with his {her?} companions.

Top/down - bottom/up? Recall what ''23'' represents {in relation to ''45''?}.

Side note: "Twenty three foot long; from bow to stern - deep seated with men.'' William Bligh Journal.

''Funeral games'' relative to: "In time-honoured tradition, Achilles sponsors funeral games in which such events as a chariot race, wrestling, running and archery are held in memory of Patroclus."

Side note: Recall Gilgamesh's 'best' friend? Link it to the word ''memory'' {i.e.,what it IMPLIES within subject material}.

'The Sacred Origin of Sports and Culture' / Ghazi bin Muhammed. Try the ''Battle of Marathon''.

Side Note: As {ONE} example: A game with a ball that predates modern football - some say its origins - called Royal Shrovetide Football match {Ashbourne/Derbyshire}. Played twice a year: Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday. Eight hours each day {''16''}. Goals three miles apart - Upstream = East {boundary?} of town. Downstream = West boundary. To score a goal one has to tap a millstone {wheel} in the center three times - which is in the river. ['Football: Brief History' / Alfie Allen. History channel]. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

hytg (2)Continued....Put it all together and/or from a different perspective: "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..." Enlarged elsewhere.

Something hinted at: "But who or what was Gogmagog….The neighbourhood of Wisbech is incidentally celebrated for the grave in its vicinity of the hero, or giant, Hic{cath}rift or Hiccafrith. This warrior, who fought a battle with a wheel for a buckler and an axel-tree for a sword, seems to me to have been 'The trust of the Hiccas' or 'Iceni', and was probably a Celtic god. His grave was pointed out, and a stone, known as his candle-stick, preserved in a Marshland Church." [Page 16, 'Gogmagog: The Buried Gods' / T. C. Lethbridge]. Anything?

gog-magog-300x200

''Error runs down an inclined plane while truth has to ….?

And/or: " Brown also says that the Euphratean Sugi, the Chariot Yoke, was identified with 'a' + 'b' of this constellation, which remind us by sound and signification of the Zuyov and Jugum of Greece and Rome respectively, and that astrology adds evidence in favour of a Chaldean origin, for it has always claimed Libra - the Northern Scale at least - as a 'fruitful sign', taking this from the very foundations of astrology in the Chaldean belief that ''when the Sugi stars were clear the crops were good''. In modern astrology however, the reverse of this is held, in the case of the Southern Scale....In classical astrology the whole constituted the ancient House of Venus....the planet appeared here at 'creation'....and the goddess bound together human couples under the yoke of matrimony...." [Page 274 {under Libra} ' Star Names their Lore and Meaning'].

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

oxen3

"THE FORE-LEG OF OX'' - hieroglyph of ancient Egypt is an old hieroglyph - it represented the 'Big Dipper'. It came to have many uses over 3000 years." {Wiki}. Question. Food for thought?

"What we call a symbol is a term, a name, or even a picture that may be familiar in daily life; yet that possesses specific connotations in addition to its conventional and obvious meaning. It implies something vague, unknown, or hidden from us. As an example take the case of the Indian who, after a visit to England, told his friends at home that the English worship animals, because he had found eagles, lions, and oxen in old churches. He was not aware {nor are many Christians} that these animals are symbols of the Evangelists and are derived from the vision of Ezekiel, and that this in turn has an analogy to the Egyptian Horus and his four sons...Thus a word or an image is symbolic when it implies something more than its obvious and immediate meaning. It has a wider ''unconscious'' aspect that is never precisely defined or fully explained." [ 'Man and His Symbols'. Enlarged elsewhere

Question. Lion = Mark / Eagle = John / Ox = Luke. Which of the four sons of Horus represent the Egyptian equivalent of the ''Ox''? AND WHY? Try ''four''.

A working example: "Even when constellation boundaries remain the same from culture to culture, the ways in which those constellations are seen can be very different. Thus the ancient Egyptians knew the constellation that we call the Great Bear, but represented it with the foreleg of a bull. They saw the Little Bear {Ursa Minor} as a Jackal. They depicted the constellation of Cancer as a scarab beetle. The constellation of Drago, which we see as a dragon, was figured by the ancient Egyptians as a hippo with a crocodile on its back..." ['Magicians of the gods'].

''On its back'' in relation to ''under ones belt'' {enlarged elsewhere}. Attempt to 'see' what the above author cannot {other than the obvious},i.e.,try ''crocodile'' of which the 'Jackal' {i.e.,in one form or another} plays its part. Others highlighted.

As {one} example: "At Edfu, the great mystery Play of Horus is fully inscribed on the outer west wall of the temple quarter. It details the complete Horian mythos acted out by Pharaoh and his retinue at an annual festival which included the sacred drama...The 'play' depicts the triumph of Horus over Set, in the form of, hippopotamus, oryx, and crocodile." ['Sacred Tradition in Ancient Egypt' / R. Clark].

''Play'' in relation to 'outer' {external} - understanding core elements of which = that ''inner'' something - relative to the self,i.e.,as one example - ''quarter'' in relation to 90 degrees; therefore right angle symbolism etc. Enlarged throughout.

Try 'Feast of Fools' for its universal appeal - if only in defining subject material.

Demeter/Persephone and Hades?

nhyAs seen from a different perspective: { a correct one?}: "Aratus, who was one of the primal sources for mediaeval star-imagery {as opposed to star-lore used in astrology, which was derived ultimately, though by circuitous routes, from Ptolemy}, makes the observation that the stars of Taurus do really mark out the 'head of the ox'. For Aratus, the Hyades is 'in the forehead of the bull', and one star marks the tip of the left horn, as well as the right foot of the Charioteer. Indeed he says 'not by other signs would one mark the head of an ox'...In the esoteric lore the relationship between the patterns of the stars and the images they represent is explained in quite a different way. It is suggested that the areas of sky marked out by certain star groups were first experienced as areas of 'spiritual influence'. It is likely that such 'experience' would not be available to all men, but would be available to those initiates who had endured the disciplines {study?} and spiritual 'enlightenments' {eureka moments?} of those teachers in the mystery schools...Here we shall merely note the fact of its zodiacal series being constellational rather than tropical..." ['The Secret Zodiac'].

Understanding that final sentence defines Homers method of 'story telling'. That same method - by way of those universal constants - that have; and still are; being applied generation after generation. Since the written word came into common use. An unknown factor to such authors as G. Hancock.

And/or: "The lion of St. Mark is the image of Leo. The eagle of St. John is the eagle of Scorpio, which sign {alone of all the twelve} has two images - the eagle the symbol of the redeemed and spiritualized Scorpionic nature, and the scorpion its fallen, unredeemed and earth-bound nature. The winged human of St. Matthew is the waterbearer of Aquarius: the waterpot which poured spiritual substance for all humanity...The bull of St. Luke is the animal Taurus. These four images are derived from the four fixed signs of the zodiac. Representing the four fixed elements in mediaeval astrology. Leo is fire, Scorpio is water, Aquarius {for all its name} is Air, whilst Taurus is Earth." ['The Secret Zodiac'].

A side step...In the Hermes / Asclepius, Hermetic text, Hermes talks about a 'transformation' that is "wrought inside the process of time",[chapter six. 'The Source Field Investigations]. The author speculates about same, in relation to 'the Precession' cycle. Think about it, in relation to 'groove' and 'repetitive' symbolism, [benefit of, in relation to the 'Ka']. Knowing that 'time' in its basic form could be described as 'segments' ['spine' link] within a learning process. Each 'learning curve' is a 'step' by step process, where time is relevant both external and internal, in relation to that 'development' . The most important point, however [according to this subject, that is, once again by implication] is that... 'benefit of'... is especially relevant in 'B', in order; through a 'learning process', [by way of a positive / negative aspect 'understanding'] to get to 'C'. Should B/C exist of course. Remember objectivity at all times, i.e.,at least attempt it ,rather than allowing those emotions to dictate where on that learning curve you find yourself {'arc' link}.

N.B. 'The Thigh of the Ox' {or bull} in the shape of the Egyptian Adze. Question. What 'ceremony' was associated with it?

Question 2. Play time addicts?

Side note: The author of 'Imhotep the African' points out the association of the 'thigh' in relation to Letopolis and 'its' relation to Giza and Heliopolis {i.e.,as a 'right angled triangle'}. No mention of the symbolic intent of the 'Delta' to {say} in relation to the 'Sea'. Salt water in relation to fresh. All as a means...?

To go beyond his Sothic Cycle hypothesis - try 'Pyr'-amid and/or 'right angled triangle' and/or ''hypotenuse'' and/or ''N/E -S/W'' {i.e., between Giza - Heliopolis} in relation to ''line of sight''. ALL in relation {relative?} to the most important aspect of a 'mind set' as mentioned above.

Question. Top/down or bottom/up?

'New Model of the Universe' / P. D. Ouspensky. {Geocentric?}.

Cleopatra identified with the ‘Triple Uraeus’, [explained elsewhere, i.e., A-C. The full S/P ]. Notice...A few decades later ‘Jesus’ arrives on the scene. He his now able to learn all the above in his ’missing years’. To be ‘applied’ between 30-33. Both significant numbers, [ see number symbolism etc ]. Proving that through objective research / analysis rather than leaving all to those first impressions...a certain logic ‘shines’ through, [a link to the true meaning of the "shining ones", i.e., ’Devas’, [explained elsewhere, together with that words link to 'music' symbolism, explained within]. Proving again the viability of the subject regardless of ones opinion of it. Ones first impressions of it.

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

cap3

Question. Mayan equivalent of 90/45 degrees? i.e., 'ear' {lobe} in relation to 'middle' of forehead. Together with 'Hands' = S/E - N/W. 'Heads' = N/E - S/W. 'Point of Beard' = 'Crossover' point?

"All the celebrated songs of India have been composed by devotees of the 'divine'. The Sanskrit word for ''musician'' is bhagavathar, - ''he who sings the praises of god."...Because man himself is an expression of the Creative Word..." try ''logos'' to see it from a different {western?} perspective {i.e., 'angle'}.

Part of the purpose within the ‘design’ is to impart that same information to others. According to these authors it is part of the ‘course’. A prerequisite of attaining that ultimate goal, i.e., [C]. Hence the reason why; in most cases; its freely given. Misguided anthropology / Philanthropy? False altruism?

cross

The Cross. Its true representation? As a means...?

"It is from god, so hear! and to 'god' do you return! When you hear what i bring, learn! Then with understanding see the details in the whole, then give it to those who seek it, and stint not. This is the mercy that encompasses you; so extend it." [Preface by Al-Arabi to the book 'The Bezels of Wisdom'].

Question. Mercy in relation to 'grace'. What figure represents it - Is associated with it?

In Profile? 45 degrees?

"Perhaps it is the ancient importance of this Dog on the Nile that has given the popular name - the Egyptian X - to the figure formed by the stars Procyon and Betelgeuze, Naos and Phaet - with Sirius at the vertices of the two triangles and the center of the letter. On our maps Sirius marks the nose of the Dog...Some have called it Mazzaroth of the Book of Job..." [Info. on Canis Major 'Star Names and Their Meaning'].

Side note: The ''nose'' of something {regardless of species, including the human one} relative to the ''tip'' of {say} a tail. All as a means...?

'Face on' in relation to 'in profile'?

A working example: "Is this what Imhotep meant by: 'his temple opens southeastward; Re {the sun}, rises in its face every day?' That is, on the suns annual journey, moving north and south of due east, it never rises further south than the axis of this S/E facing temple, and so rises 'in its face every day'. " [Page 113 'Imhotep the African'].

Excellent research especially on sunrises/sunsets in relation to the Big Dipper and ''foundations''. But until this subject is taken into account FULLY no end result can be got.

As an example {ONE example only}: "These temples are however, on the east bank of the river - representing the involutionary cycle of creation - the field of the gods - whereas the west bank = the evolutionary path travelled by man." Cancer/Capricorn?

Try ''u-turn'' to add something extra to that excellent research.

And/or: ''The seven stars of Ursa Minor - as the 'handle that turned the quern'. " [Page 202, 'Esoteric Egypt' / J. S. Gordon]. Try those two.

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

Continued: Representation / symbolism of that ‘giving back’ takes different forms, depending like all else on time / place and culture. Its main example given by the same person mentioned above, [the Jesus chap]... ‘returning for 40 days’. To be seen by his close friends and strangers. Indicative of something being verified. Indicative of a ‘potential’ accessible to all. ’Four’ and multiples / series of., i.e., 4/40/400... indicative of the physical world. Especially in relation to the 'Venus cycles' {of which the Mayan culture had a vested interest in}- relative to the 'morning star' representing an awakening of something. As explained in such books as 'The Sacred History'. Mentioned within {parenthesis, this readers].

"Still another astronomical explanation of the importance of 40 can be found in the 40 aspects of Saturn which, according to the Bible, is the star of Judah." ['Mystery of Numbers'].

Side note. Green jade in relation to Venus and teeth {i.e.,the same embedded in the teeth of 'Kings']. Try ''teeth''. Think about it relative to the precession - as indicated within such works as 'Galactic Alignment'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Put those symbols together to understand something other than the obvious, i.e.,Tau cross; figure four: 'light' as opposed to 'dark' i.e.,aware /unaware; blue / red; 12th card in relation to 'high noon' or 'zenith'; etc.

As is same with the character shown on the ’hangmans card’ of Tarot fame. One leg in the shape of a figure ’4’. Notice the expression on face. Indicative of a willingness to learn [ ‘return’.] From understanding something of ’the above’. To imparting it below. Symbolic of that ‘position’...The upside down one. Or even the head [and therefore 'expression' ] of the Sphinx; in relation to the Great pyramid. The 'horizontal' at the lower end of the 'vertical'. The upside down cross. Imparting that knowledge, indicative of north / south, ['dry' way link. Also take note...all 'entrances' on all three pyramids....on the North side]. South to North being indicative of that return journey. Thinking time.

The beginning of which is represented by the 'offset' pyramid, indicative of the 'fallen' state. Hence the reason why they only align when the figure of Orion is ''upside down." [Discovery channel 2015]. That same intent that is represented with the ‘Quernstone’...but now in relation to the ‘journey’. The later represents the individual effort, [Micro]...as the former does to the collective one, [Macro]. Explained elsewhere.

Try ''quern'' for other examples - to see if you agree or disagree.

Side note: "As Lord of the nethermost, Saturn views the world from the outside, from such 'depths of distance' that he sees it all ''upside down'', and to this view {objective view?} the structure of things is revealed." ['Saturn and the Theoretical foundations of an Emerging Discipline'].

Side note: In the Sphinx temple statues of Khafre were found ''upside down''. Pure coincidence?

Question. What material {and/or colour?} were they made from. Any link to 'Saturn'?

Question 2. If Saturn = Khafre; what are the others represented by and why?

Try ''Saturn'' to see it from a 'beginners' {leaden?} point of view. It also gives clues as to the possible start {and/or end?} date of something.

And/or: "The Giant generally has been represented with his back towards us and face in profile, armed with a club, or sword, and protected by his shield...Durer drew him facing the Bull, whose attack he is warding off; but the Leyden Manuscript has a slightly clad 'youth' with a short , curved staff in the right hand, and the Hare in the background. The stars make up the head, shoulders, left foot and right knee. But Sir John Herschel observed from southern latitudes that the inverted view of the constellation well represents a human figure; the stars that we imagine the shoulders appearing for the knees, Rigel forming the head, and Cursa of Eridanus, one of the shoulders." [Page 308 'Star Names and Their Meaning' under Orion].

Side note: "The wild bull represents untamed inner {usually represented as sexual} power. The actual 'sacrifice' of the bull is a symbolic representation of a necessary inner, spiritual quest." [Page 87 'Serpent in the Sky'].

Podrick Payne? {Game of Thrones}.

Continued: Nordic mythology ‘starts’ off from that ‘intention’. Odin learns...in order to give back. Very well explained, from both an objective and subjective point of view, relative to "turning points in the evolution of consciousness", and that 'development' throughout the ages, within the book 'The Sacred History' by Jonathan Black.

A more practical example; now represented in its physical form; is the American medal of Honour. The ‘upside down’ Star/pentagram. That word pentagram; if allowed to; can play on the imagination because of those undisciplined first impressions. Due to the environment that we live in. Sometimes called the upside down cross. Its negative attribute given by some because of ‘Peter’ being crucified in the upside down position. Remember ‘Peter’ was giving back. Imparting those new ideas to anyone who would listen. Some stories say...It was his assailants who chose his final resting position. The ‘unconscious’ aspect of the same. Thinking cap time, i.e.,possible synchronistic link.

Wet and dry. Anything?

That same unconscious aspect that can be represented with salt water. That American ’upside down’ star/medal that has the Roman ’goddess’ Minerva, [explained elsewhere], as its central emblem, regardless of army / navy / pilots, i.e., Land / Sea / Air. Think about it. ‘Minerva’ in relation to ‘the self’ in relation to the ‘whole’. What better example [as a representation of something], could there be of someone who ‘returns’...In order to help someone else. Co-incidence? Or a ‘meaningful’ one.

"In classical antiquity '17' appears in connection with warfare and heroism." [i.e.,Hiram Abif link]. Enlarged elsewhere.

A {working?} example: "According to Plutarch , Osiris was killed by Set on the 17th of Athys, which falls in November / Scorpio, the cycle of death and transformation. He died in his 28th year, an allusion to the number of days in the lunar cycle which governs organic life. In all, 14 parts {half of the lunar cycle} of the 'dismembered Neter were collected by his sisters - and taken to the mythic island of flame to be 'reassembled' - a transformation that became the prototype of Egypt's funerary tradition." [Page 94 from the book by R. Clark].

And/or: "Mythologically the Hydes {i.e.,S/E of the Pleiades} were the daughters of Atlas and Aethra, and hence half sisters of the Pleiades, with whom they made up the 14 Atlantides..." ['Page 387, 'Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning'].

Ebb and flow?

N.B. Orion who was killed {'wounded'?} by a scorpion. Now on opposite sides of the zodiac. All as a means....?

Side note: "Now, the only glyph on the outside of the pyramid {north side} was that on the portal of the double arch, cut into the 17th course of the exterior of the pyramid. This hieroglyph is the horizontal line." ['The Zelator']. Try ''horizon{tal}''.

Abstract ''wand''?

Eastern equivalent?..."In the East, the realm of Pre-eminent Happiness is Bhagavan Vajra-Sattva Akshobhya, who is pictured as blue in colour, seated on a throne supported by elephants, and holding a five pronged dorje. The dorje is a Tibetan form of magic wand, being a thunderbolt sceptre. For Westerners this could easily be regarded as a wand, with a star or pentagram at its tip; a five pointed star that has all the implications and power of the 'lightening flash' of the Qabalistic Tree of Life, that traces the descent of force from the heights of creative power. This buddha is known as the hero-minded one, or one of indestructible mind. In short he is a veritable Heracles. He is embraced by the Mamiki the Divine Mother, and from them radiates the white light of the principle of consciousness." [Extract from the book by G. Knight].

"The Tibetan system proceeds to elaborate very considerably upon the five-fold wheel."

Question. Where have you seen the elephant before relative to the number 'five'? Put all the other {keys?} together to understand something further. It also defines the Greek equivalent of same principle - and/or therefore the ''number'' it relates to? Proving the viability of subject material regardless of ones {first?} impressions of it.

Question 2. What would the principle of UNconsciousness be represented by?

And/or, i.e.,analogy of same principle - but from a different 'angle' [key] ..."Spiritual teacher = 'The Guru Gita': verse 17 aptly describes the guru as ''dispeller of darkness'' [from gu, ''darkness,'' and ru, ''that which dispels'']." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'].

Egyptian equivalent?: "Since the cosmic Bull had 'rule' over the human neck and throat, it also had rule over human speech. It is recorded that the temples of Serapis were so built that, during a certain time of the year a beam of sunlight fell onto the lips of the statue of Serapis within the temple. The lips were of course the outer symbol of the Word, and the Egyptian hieroglyph 'ru', which was used to denote the lips, as well as the 'birth passage', was adopted into the early Christian symbolism of the ankh cross...This rule was extended to the Word itself...It became an important element in the symbolism of pulpit lecterns from which the Word {'Logos'} of God was read...This symbolism has been missed by the majority of art historians ." ['The Secret Zodiac'].

''They were not just trading but sharing religious beliefs. They may have been shared by the victims themselves.'' ['Bog Bodies: Secrets Revealed' / Channel 5]. Recall 'Freemasons' initiate ceremony of a noose around the neck. Coincidence?

Analogy of same with all the above [keys ? principles?] in mind..."The method of the initiatory system is both synthetic and analytic, in constant application. It brings ideas and experiences together and it breaks them apart, repeating and recycling...In the Tarot, the Hierophant and the Hanged Man are the most appropriate cards for depicting the method; the former, a revealer of the sacred mysteries, and the latter, the sacrifice that must be made in order to receive those mysteries. One is the teacher, who must interface with the divine and maintain position as a bridge; the other is the candidate or initiate, whose world must be 'turned upside down'. " [Extract from the book 'The Magister' by M. Katz ].

S/E?

The study of the subject gives the same result, i.e.,the student becomes his own [inner?] 'teacher' by understanding those universal concepts [''repeating and recycling'', i.e.,revision] in order to define something. In order to understand the parts within the whole. The ''micro within the macro''. The self within the bigger picture. Possibilities of. Nothing more.

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

For whom the bell tolls.

A ''synchronistic'' example of same [if only for this reader, and/or 'UNmanifested'?] could be the ''primordial scream'' omitted, in the upside down position, that allowed Mr M. Oldfield; of 'Tubular Bells' fame; to experience - in his own words - ''a rebirth''. Which became the beginnings of his own recovery. From darkness to light. From a negative to a positive. That internal struggle. Represented by the film that those ''Bells'' became associated with - 'The Exorcist'. [ 'Tabular Bells: The Mike Oldfield Story'. BBC Four]. Strangely enough those 'Bells' that form a figure 4, as well as the 'heart'.

"The haunting tones of the church bell beckoned across the wet fields as the ancient oak came into view..." Douglas Monroe.

"The voice of truth in a person that has not yet awakened to spiritual life, is the ''still small voice'' that may be felt in the heart, listened to by the imperfect; as a half conscious dreamer may listen to the ringing of bells in the distance; but in those that have become conscious of life, that have passed through the first 'resurrection' of the spirit in their own heart, and received the baptism of the first initiation, administered by themselves, the voice of the new born 'ego' has no uncertain sound, but becomes the powerful Word of the 'Master'. [Emphasis this readers. Chapter 1, from the book by F. Hartman]. Link to the word ''teacher''.

A working example {that very first one?}:"The principle of the city came to me as an expression of a cosmic pattern, rather after the fashion of Dion Fortune's the 'Cosmic Doctrine'. First a crossways of two elements, a road and a river, causing a center that is then ring fenced by a city wall or Ring-Pass-Not and then the pointing upward to the heavens of all the spires and towers of the little parish churches, of which there were very many in London. Along with this came the significance of towers and bells, and the esoteric powers of sound - which can be of considerable practical interest in the technicalities of bell manufacture. The dimensions of which affect the type of sound that goes out - and also the principle of change ringing - in which a mathematical combination is pursued throughout its entire course of possibilities. This is a phenomenon unique to Britain, as on the continent the practice is for carillons of bells that play tunes. All this seemed to have some connection with the mathematical researches and angelic tablets of Dr John Dee. In pursuit of this, i found myself much concerned with St Mary Le Bow, and other churches constructed by Wren after the great fire of London. As part of the conference i was able to lay on a guided tour to a selection of his churches around St Paul's cathedral - St Martin's on Ludgate Hill, St Sepulchre opposite the Old Bailey, St Vedast's Foster Lane, St Mary Le Bow, St Mary Aldermary, St Nicholas Cole Abbey, St Benet Paul's Wharf, St Andrew by the Wardrobe, St Brides Fleet Street, in a clockwise circumambulation that ended in St Paul's cathedral itself at a power point marked by a brass grating directly under the midpoint of the dome and over the crypt. There was some talk of Sir Christopher Wren being associated with a secret society of his time called the Fedeli..." ['I Called it Magic' by G. Knight].

Question. 'Higher' of the Greater Mysteries? And/or ''Ring fenced by a city wall'' - recall the wall {white?} around that very first pyramid. Representation of same concept?

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

"The intuition alone of divine 'love', with its effect on moral consciousness is - they teach - the sole experience to which one should aspire."

Due to a connectedness of something? Where within a landscape would that {concept?} be represented?

Hence..."The joy of good conscious is the accord between the moral rhythms of the 'lower' and 'higher' self. The beatitude [Matthew v,8] promising those who have a pure heart that they will 'see' god - signifies the accordance of their basic rhythm with the 'divine' rhythm. Joy is therefore the state of harmony of the inner/outer rhythms - of rhythm below with that of above..." [Extract from the book by Tomberg. Emphasis, this readers].

Simply put -positive over negative? IN RELATION TO...’'A symbol is an energy-evoking and direct agent’'. Think about it. In relation to those positives/ negatives within a ‘river’. [ J.Campbell. ’Flight of the Wild Gander’. Chapter five. Part seven]. That link to the word ''archetype.'' Question. Autopilot?

Astronomy equivalent and or a {work?} in its early {reflective?} phase - {the very first one?}: "Homer draws attention to the physical appearance of the Moon in the guise of Hera when on several occasions he associates it with human feelings and a popular , even child - like, image of its face. When all of Hera's schemes are going well in the closing lines of Book 1 she is said to have a 'smiling face', but then thwarted in Book 8 she shakes with rage. Confronted with Zeus anger in Book 15, she is forced to control her feelings, and signs of both happiness and bad mood are combined. We believe Homer was recording an unusual astronomical phenomenon when he has Zeus sternly remind Hera, 'Do you not remember how once upon a time i had you hanged? I fastened two anvils on to your feet, and bound your hands in a chain of gold which none might break, and you hung in mid air among the clouds'. These lines suggest a lunar phenomenon when four other 'moons' can be seen in the skies. Known as 'parselene' - 'mock moons' or 'moon dogs', these are small diffuse images that can be seen at 22 degrees on either side and north and south of the moon. They are caused by the refraction of light by ice crystals in the atmosphere, and, although it is possible to see several moons, it is most common to see only one or two at a time, like the anvils tied to Hera's feet. Hera is also associated with such events as conjunctions..." ['Homer Secret Iliad']. Try ''anvil'' to see something from a different perspective {refraction?}.

Follow the title of the book to 'see' that unknown {quantity OR quality?} become a known one. Throughout ALL cultures. From darkness {'moon/silver'} to light {'sun/gold'}.

Ring {knock?} three times?

Apply the above to define the following: "There is scarcely a stone of the original basilica which does not play its part in the profound symbolism of the zodiac. As we shall see eventually, this symbolism so unites the interior and exterior of the church that they together participate in three rhythms: first, in the daily apparent movement of the sun; second, in an astonishing annual phenomenon of the sun, when the solar body stands in a particular relationship to Florence, and third in a distinctly powerful configuration of planets which might be regarded as signifying a new age, such as that which was inaugurated in Florence after the building of San Miniato..." ['The Secret Zodiac']. Try ''Saturn''.

Analogy?: "This collection i.e.,The Ramesside Books {dating from the beginning of the New Kingdom in Dyn. 19} is distinct among the funerary literature of the period and of Egyptian history overall. Combining philosophical, 'magical', and deeply religious themes, the works reflect Stella, Solar-Horian, and Lunar-Osirian objectives for the 'deceased', often within the same tomb. The cosmology of the Ramesside books appears to be derived from the Heliopolitan Stella theme...from the Old Kingdom." [Pages 280 and xxii 'The Sacred Tradition in Ancient Egypt'].

Try the title to get a flavour {rhythm?} of the overall composition.

"The 'good life' is a process. The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination. The good life constitutes a direction selected by the total organism, when there is psychological freedom to move in ANY direction." [Taken from Part three, 'on matters of existence' from the book, 'Striking Thoughts' { Bruce Lee's Wisdom for Daily Living} by J. Little. Try ''line of sight''.

A working example: "There is only one tradition, and that is the evolution into enlightenment which creates people of compassion, maturity, wisdom, and self-transcendence. Every generation must discover the paths that lead to authentic transformation. It isn't about creating new tradition, but about being genuine in one's efforts to reach ones highest potential." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way']. Continued elsewhere - compare it - 'see' it - in relation to all other ''paths''.

Hence the final paragraph of the 'Work' : "The Work is not for the elite {i.e.,the word esoteric means inner not secret}, but for anyone who has a sincere desire to reach a connection with a deeper part of themselves that opens on to encounter with that which is greater than themselves. Emotional healing and purification, self transcendence, conscious effort, awakening from sleep are the birthright of all who ''hunger and thirst'' for Truth and right action in the world." [Same book].

"The 'chaste' mind [objectivity link, i.e.,single mindedness] seeks the truth and not [just] the joy of revelation of the truth, [the author {i.e.,Tomberg} defines that 'negative' as ''intoxication'' represented with the symbol or sign of a 'mirage'] - just as chaste love seeks union with 'the loved one' and not the carnal pleasure of union." [parenthesis, this readers].

"The stream of knowledge," Sir James Jeans writes in the 'Mysteries Universe' ''is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine." Twentieth century science is thus sounding like a page from the hoary Vedas. From science, then, if it must be so, let man learn the philosophic truth that there is no material universe; its warp and woof is 'maya' illusion. Under analysis all its mirages of reality dissolve." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi' ].

Question. Nothing more than an overplay [ pretensions?] of ''moralistic'' values? Affectation?

"The joy of good conscience is the accord between moral rhythms of the lower self and the higher self. The beatitude {Matthew 5, 8} promising those who have a pure heart that they will ''see god'' signifies the accordance of their basic rhythm with the divine rhythm." [i.e.,the understanding of A-C in relation to 'divine bit' and its relevance and/or use - to each individual, i.e.,what it means to them; what they apply it to, i.e.,as an example - a self interest or shared]. All four quotes [including the one below] taken from within the book by Tomberg]. Recall what ''see'' implies.

That final sentence [if understood correctly] defines the following..."The sources of joy are deeper than those of suffering. They still spring from the river which ''flowed out of Eden to water the garden. 'Joy' is more ancient than 'suffering', and the world of joy preceded the world of suffering." [i.e.,'source' - and therefore what it implies - relative to ''the fall'' - and what it implies]. Top down in relation to bottom up. The beginnings of which is represented within a u-turn. Along the way 'back' - a 'connection' is made. That union of the two - of two opposing 'paths' - but with one eternal aim [''crossover'' point and/or 'dark night of the soul' ]. Which finally becomes [in its physical form?] what is termed as the philosophers stone. Question. Fact or fiction; a possibility or not? At least the understanding of a subject is got.

Understanding the above; defines the following quote within the book by Tomberg..." Consequently the use of the word ''magic'' is quite justified, if at least one understands by magic the power of the invisible and 'spiritual' over the visible and material." i.e., Bottom - up; in relation to top - down. Question. Which is which?

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

It also defines concave or convex relative to the earth [and/or 'observer' ] - when ALL is taken into account. Try ''polarities''.

"...the opening of the knowledge of the masculine and feminine potencies necessary unto the manifestation of all things." Potency in relation to polarity?

causewayConvex / concave in relation to the causeway between Stonehenge and the river Avon. Many speculate as to why it is in the form of a u-shape rather than as ''straight as the crow fly's''. Concave in relation to the crescent of the moon {i.e.,waxing} and/or ''bottom up''?

From the river Avon convex? From Stonehenge to the river concave? Representational of? i.e.,outer / inner and /or external / internal?

The word 'oracle' has the same intention. If only within this subject. Especially in relation to what [as an example] the word 'Apollo' represents. Find it to understand it. Rather than leave till later.

"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."

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

''The ego {personal identity} is at the center of consciousness''.

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'].

Try ''yoke''.

manAnalogy?: "The universe and everything within it constitutes 'god'. The universe is a gigantic human organism and man is a tiny image of it, a toy replica of god. Because he is a miniature of the universe, by a process of spiritual expansion a man can mystically extend his own being to cover the entire world and subject it to his will. It is because all things are aspects of the one thing that all things are grist to the magician's mill...He has reached the center, where man becomes god. The achievement of this is the Great Work..." ['The Fourth Dimension'].

Center in relation to that universal framework and 'bit'.

Cleopatra will be found with Mark Anthony, [Pagan equivalent, i.e., indicative of helping someone to understand something]...outside the boundaries of Alexander. Indicative of that return journey to ‘C’. Outside the boundaries of A/B...but within striking distance, [ ’Sting in the tail’ link, i.e.,the tail end of something together with the beginning of something else, i.e., in relation to a 'development' of something. The micro within the macro]. Hence the reason why she will not be found within those boundaries whether sunken or otherwise.

Refresher: "Achilles has a trio of fine horse...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].

Genghis Khan. Representative of that subject that some say is the origin of all the mystery clubs. Its most ancient. Shamanism. That one word that is never used; throughout; in the book 'The Sirius Mystery' but implied [knowingly or otherwise] by the words..."male initiates" in relation to the Dogon tribe, [chapter two]. The star system 'Sirius' being ''The 'source' of all their 'information'', [authors opinion]. Or the quote used by the same tribe 'the shaper of the world' and that link to "shape-shifters" of which 'shamanism' is renowned. That same link to the 'female' equivalent, i.e.,anima,['unknown']...being the Greek 'goddess' Circe, who 'changed' her 'enemies',[negative aspects] into 'animals', i.e.,'lower' from the 'higher' i.e.,another word associated with the same, being the word 'falcon', as discovered in the same book, by the same author, [chapter five].

If the author had included within his 'hypothesis' alternative 'credible information' such as that which would be found within such publications as 'The Aquatic Ape Hypothesis' by E. Morgan and/or 'The Hidden Messages in Water' by Masaru Emoto, then that 'personal' hypothesis may have stood 'the test of time'.

Side note: On his 'return' journey home Odysseus lands on an island {accidently or would that be synchronistically?} inhabited by Circe. The only island named with 'vowels'. Is kept 'prisoner' for a ''year and a day'' - his men turned into pigs {therefore ''lower'' and 'otherworld' link; in the 'unknown' sense of the word, i.e.,nothing LEARNED from it. Nothing learned or wisdom gained from his experiences}. Experiences of ''Cauldron'' in relation to ''head and shoulders'' and/or ''silver studded chair'' {Seat of first Occasion?}. ['Gods and Monsters'. BBC4].

Try ''Odysseus'' to unravel ''myth'' in an attempt to define that universal mind set.

Continued: The final link however, as to the most likely possible 'source' of their 'information', when 'weighing' up all the available evidence [circumstantial or otherwise, including the meaning of such obvious, in your face; evidence, such as the meaning of 'Circe']... will be found; at least for this reader; within Mr Naydler's book 'Shamanic Wisdom of the Pyramid Texts'. Or further information on the Dogon tribe in order to evaluate correctly can be found on page twelve onwards within the book 'The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life', [Vol. one]. Using his understanding of 'fish' symbolism to entice the reader to a deeper understanding...especially that 'inner' [symbolic] meaning of the 'dolphin', of which he constantly uses throughout; in one form or another; in the book. In the same vein as Plato and Gurdjieff, but now in 'story telling' form, i.e.,"because it is one of the best methods i know to give and receive information", [chapter 10, same book, vol 2].

The concepts of 'iron' and 'blacksmiths' very important. As indicated in chapter eight of 'Hamlets mill'. The ‘forging’ of something. The blacksmith being the older brother of the shaman. Think about it in relation to the 'younger'. Ptah / Imhotep being the Egyptian equivalent..."responsible for the final stages of the 'divine' creative outpouring of form into the physical world" {'son of' link?}....."who channeled the spiritual into material embodiment", Hence the link to his ''cap''. Representational of same. Found elsewhere. [chapter seven. 'The future of the Ancient World'/ J.Naydler]. Think about it, in relation to the Hebrew word 'Shekhinah', relative to the Egyptian 'Ka'.

"...Then, in the Memphite myth, when the divine blacksmith Ptah {the Greek Hephaistos} actualized the 'creation' of the world by means of the Desire of his heart and the Word of his speech.'' [Extract from the book by L. Lamy]. Try ''logos''. Egyptian equivalent.

To vulcanize something by ‘fire’.[key. Mentioned elsewhere]. That same ‘substance’ that the trickster character ‘stole’. Think about it...especially in relation to one of its other 'forms'...the Hare and/or fox, i.e., in relation to the many different ways,[forms] of understanding something...in imagesWEFIE99Ugetting an understanding across....in an attempt to define something, for an understanding to take place, i.e., 'to be' made aware.

"Serious mysteries may be describable only in terms of paradox, or in what passes for jest."

"If god ever calls me to a holy war - i want Joe Frazier beside me." Muhammad Ali.

A {working?} example: "Gurdjieff's silence regarding his sources gives birth to a suspicion that he is silent for a reason, because he follows a purely personal goal. This is the very opposite to the accomplishment of a mission. Why would one who fulfills a mission hide his sources? It is perhaps here that is found the meaning of the phrase ''Maybe i stole it...". It could be interpreted as the admission that he was not asked to diffuse this teaching, neither in the East nor in the West. It was a personal initiative on his part, to satisfy a personal interest." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way']. Continued elsewhere. Try ''method'' to see 'it' from different perspectives.

Refresher {Part 2}: "The fourth way is sometimes is called the 'way of the sly man'. The 'sly man' knows some secret which the fakir, monk and yogi do not know. How the 'sly man' learned this secret is not known. Maybe he found it in some old books, perhaps he inherited it, perhaps he bought it, or stole it from someone. It makes no difference. The 'sly man' knows the secret and with its help outstrips the fakir, the monk and yogi." ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

The Dogon tribe do the same in relation to their own stories that contain that very same framework...by way of the 'Pale Fox', i.e.,"The fourth Nommo [Nommo being the "collective name for the 'great culture hero' and founder of civilisation". Chapter two, i.e.,trickster character. See P. Radin book for verification]... is the 'naughty' disrupter named Ogo or Nommo Anagonno. As he was about to be finished [being created] he rebelled against his creator and introduced disorder into the universe. Eventually he will become the 'Pale fox'. Which is the image of his fall". [Chapter nine].

The 'leaping' fox as seen on the pillar{s?} at Gobekli-tepe? [Chapter two 'Gobekli Tepe' by A. Collins].

Think about it, in relation to the primary aim/purpose of the 'trickster character'. Any trickster character, of which Hermes and Thoth and therefore by the same implication 'Solomon' are identified with. The result of which, becoming those inspirations/aspirations that could lead to a possible understanding...from a 'fallen' state, [benefit of].

"Consciousness is that which one carries within oneself, which rules from within to without until it has totally enlightened us, and it never leaves us stranded, regardless of the neglect into which one might have allowed it to fall." ['Journey into the Light'].

Example of same, as shown throughout by Mr R.Temple of the 'Sirius Mystery' fame. Using his knowledge of the Dogon story, to entice the reader to understand that deeper/inner meaning, within the overall subject. This one. His main interest being the geodetic aspect. Latitude and longitude within all landscapes. Showing all those connections between north and south. East and West. In the same 'vein', and with the same intent as Gurdjieff and Plato do... With the reader in mind. Even though he is off the mark; if only for this reader; with his final 'hypothesis'. [Also verified by the author of the 'Cygnus Mystery', page 284].

Latitude/longitude = 'lozenge' ?

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

Therefore a link in some form {to a representation of something} - by way of - an heliacal rising?

Overlooking Stonehenge from a southern perspective. Male skeleton found - 'Lord of Stonehenge' - Bronze Axe {near left shoulder} / gold plate on chest {lozenge} and coral shafted mace found within..."In some ways the mystery of Stonehenge will not be solved, but every theory gets us that little bit closer..." Quote by Prof. Mike Parker Pearson within the program 'Stonehenge: A Time-watch Guide' / BBC4. UNDERSTAND THIS SUBJECT - TO GET THAT ''LITTLE BIT CLOSER.'' N.B. Djoser's 'Step Pyramid also overlooking {beginning?} from the south. Question. What was found within it?

"The design of the artifact known as the Bush Barrow Lozenge, and the smaller lozenge , has been shown to be based on a hexagon construction. Both the shape and the decorative panels appear to have been created by repeating hexagons within a series of three concentric circles." [Wiki / 'Bush Barrow']. Try among others ''hexagon'' and ''three''.

And/or: "We knew that the lozenge itself was an arcane symbol. The four bounding lines were symbolic of the four elements which according to arcane knowledge, frame the outer structure of the phenomenal world. The space they bound is the Etheric, or life force {'quintessence'}, hidden behind the elemental four. It is a 'space' invisible to ordinary vision...The lozenge is one of the basic symbols of esoteric lore, representing as it does as a sort of doorway into the etheric spiritual world...This symbol of the etheric plane is nowhere no more openly announced than in Notra-Dame, France...A figure is displayed within a huge lozenge, the bounds of which are decorated with small lozenges. Altogether there are 41 lozenges in this single architectural detail..." ['The Zelator'].

Someone closer to the mark; for this reader; using the same knowledge of latitude and longitude within this subjects symbolism will be found with the author Stecchini, as explained within the book 'Secrets of the Great Pyramid' by P. Tompkins.

Analogy? "In practical terms, any journey must take place through some kind of landscape. So the next stage of our practical work with 'magical' images is to use them in a linear way that will take us through an initiatory journey or story. Such journeys are common in all myth and legend..." ['Magical Images and the Magical Imagination' / G. Knight].

The word / name ‘Fulcanelli’ ['ten' letters ], some say is a play on the words Vulcan / Falcon, together with ‘elli’. A beginning / end. Work it out. All symbolic of a ‘beginners’ journey {linear?}. All within one word. Like the words...Blacksmith / Hammer and Anvil. All symbolic within the blacksmiths ‘Apron’. [use the 'find' indicator]. The author of the Zelator suggests something different,

Side note: ''Apron'' in the guise {veil?} of something else? Try ''veil''.

A working example: "...Yet no one prior to Schwaller de Lubicz seems to have asked if the apron had special significance. He carefully measured 72 of these 'aprons' - almost all of them within the covered Temple of Luxor....found to be precise mathematical considerations. ['Serpent in the Sky'].

Define those keys to define something beyond ''mathematical considerations''.

Egyptian equivalent... short 'kilt' worn in the 'sed jubilee' as indicated in 'Shamanic Wisdom in the Pyramid Texts. Mentioned elsewhere. More often than not, made of 'leopard' skin. Use the 'find' tool [search box], to understand why, before asking that bigger question, i.e.,why, why go to all this effort. Ritual? Nothing more?

Vulcan: the patron saint of alchemy, who introduced the same to mankind. Falcon: ''The Lord of the skys.'' Eli: meaning ''Ascent'' or ''Yahweh is the most high god." The author of the Zelator offers a different interpretation by way of the Hebrew word ''Ishon'' and this subjects main representation of the symbolic intent of the ''apple.'' The end result, however, regardless of which interpretation one agrees with; is the same. An understanding of something. That inner one. The micro within the macro.

rr"The Hebrew 'Ishon' means 'dwarf', but in the authorized version of the bible it is translated as 'apple of the eye'. The association is almost certainly linked with the hermetic 'kore' [see part one]. In The Lamentations of Jeremiah [ii, 18], the translation offered is 'let not the apple of thine eye cease', suggesting that the apple of the eye is weeping. However, it could, with a much deeper meaning, be translated, ''let not the small man within cease.'' [Bibliographic notes to the final chapter].

Analogy of same. Kore = "The virgin of the eye is a reference to the Greek Kore, which besides meaning the 'pupil of the eye' also means 'maiden' or 'virgin'. Just so, the English 'pupil' can also mean 'someone who is learning'.

The beginning {''virgin''} of something?

'The Eye of Heart' by Frithjof Schuon.

"But again, the movement runs both ways - for what one surrenders is, mystery, the same as what one gains. The eye which Odin offered to Mimir was a pledge given in exchange for water from the well; but the well itself is also called ''the pledge of Odin.'' Similarly, the Celtic languages can use the same word to mean ''spring'' or ''pool'' and ''eye.'' Thus the famous hot springs at Bath [Aquae Sulis] in Somerset were in Roman times named ''the waters of the eye'': like the Boyne they were sacred to a Goddess, in this case one identified with the Roman Goddess of wisdom, Minerva."[Taken from the chapter, 'The Waters of Vision and the Gods of Skill.' Mentioned elsewhere]. Put ''Minerva'' in the box. Then try ''Boyne.''

'Sulis' a link to the Irish suil, meaning ''eye.''

"Dion Fortune's concerns with the Arthurian legend begins and ends at Glastonbury. Here she settled in 1922 at the foot of the Tor, at Chalice Orchard. She celebrated her love of Glastonbury and its legends, in a book called 'Avalon of the Heart,' which she first wrote about in her 'Inner Light' magazine......"

Egyptian equivalent: 'Intelligence of the heart'? Enlarged elsewhere.

path"There are many different 'roads' leading to our English Jerusalem, ''the holyest erthe in England.'' We can approach it by the high road of history, which leads through a rich country......Its influence twines like a golden thread through the story of our Islands. OR we can come to Glastonbury by the upland path of legend. In and out twine the ancient folk stories, full of deep spiritual significance to those whose hearts are turned to their key. AND there is a third way to 'Glastonbury,' one of the secret Green roads of the soul [ or Green Language] - the 'mystic' way that leads through the hidden door [or 'chambers'] into the land known only to the 'eye of vision.' This is 'Avalon of the heart......' [Introduction to the book 'The Arthurian Formula' by D. Fortune and others]. Can you by now see why [as in this example] the author uses such phrases as 'Chalice Orchard' or 'Avalon of the heart.' Can you 'see' that inner meaning?

"Analogy of same; but more KEYS to {contemplate?}..."I saw a building jutting out like a great white ocean liner toward the blue brine, {'horizon' link}. First, speechlessly, then with ''Oh's!'' and ''Ah's!", finally with man's insufficient vocabulary {'gnosis' link, i.e.,what it implies} of joy and gratitude, i examined the Ashram: sixteen unusually large rooms, each one charmingly appointed. The stately central hall, with high ceiling windows, looks out on an altar of grass, ocean and sky: a symphony in emerald, opal and sapphire. A mantel over the huge fire-place of the hall holds pictures of Christ, Babaji, Lahiri Mahasaya and Sri Yukteswar; bestowing, i feel, their blessing on this tranquil Western ashram. Directly below the hall, built into the very bluff, two meditation caves confront the infinities of sky and sea. On the grounds are sunbathing nooks, flagstone paths leading to quiet harbours, rose gardens, a eucalyptus grove, and a fruit orchard..." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'. All emphasis - this readers].

West in relation to 'altar'. Grass in relation to emerald and/or Ocean/opal - Sky/sapphire - All of which i.e.,represented within 'gardens and groves' = the ''fruit of ones labours.'' Look up ''16.'' to understand ''its'' implication.

"...but if you are armed with the 'wand' of intuition, the 'cup' of sympathy, the 'sword' of reason and the 'pentacle' of valor, you will find there {the legends say} the Medicine of Metals, the Elixir of Life, the Philosophers Stone, True Wisdom and perfect happiness." [Extract from the book 'The Cosmic Trigger' by R. Wilson. Emphasis, this readers].

''Medicine of Metals'' = 'Metal of the mind'? If so, what represents it And why?

The real questions however remain the same. WHY GO TO ALL THIS EFFORT?

'The Apples of the Hesperides'. This penultimate labour takes Heracles so close to the center of things that it is sometimes cited as the last labour. However, this is esoterically incorrect, for the final labour must be the harrowing of hell and the overcoming of the powers of Death. To approach the garden in the far West where the Tree of Life grows in the form of an apple tree bearing golden fruit is, however, a similar feat of overcoming natural inner boundaries, the one symbolized in the Old Testament by the angel who prevents mankind returning to the Garden of Eden, the earthly paradise." [Extract from the book 'The Rose Cross and the Goddess: The Quest for the Feminine Eternal Principle' from the chapter entitled 'The Heroic Quest for the Hesperides' by G. Knight].

And/or: "Here then, is the first twist in the Pilgrim's Way story, because at Farnham, Belloc's prehistoric travellers did not forsake the chalk for the valleys of the River Wey and the Itchen and make for the area around Winchester. Instead, Belloc argues that they kept to the chalk on the higher ground and from Farnham took an ancient trackway that has become known as the Harroway or Hoar Way. The derivation of the name varies greatly depending upon who you refer to. Timperley and Brill suggest it is one of the oldest roads in Britain and refer to it as the Harrow or 'Hard Way'. Jacetta Hawkes believed it to be one of the main east-west thoroughfares used by prehistoric man....It is the Harroway that took Belloc's prehistoric travellers westwards towards Salisbury Plain and Stonehenge. For Salisbury Plain is where all the great chalk ridges of southern England converge....The Harroway served as a key east-west trackway that extended across southern England." [Page 30 'The Pilgrims Way' / Derek Bright].

Question. What would represent south-north or would that be north-south?

Question 2. Recall the substance of 'chalk' I.e., seashells and flint. Something below a 'salty' waterline but NOW above it {'Island'?}. Wet/dry?

'Flint' = the spark of something? With what direction in mind? 'Horizontal or vertical'?

Question 3. Is that {Island} 'floating' or 'fixed'? All as a means to determine a MINDSET?
