three-and-a-half

'Sun' in the ''middle'' - 'Eight' in total {i.e.,'seven' in relation to the 'Self' }. See anything other than the obvious? Try ''three and a half''.

..."The vow of chastity means to say the putting into practice of the resolution to live accordingly to 'solar' law, without covetousness and without indifference. Because virtue is boring and vice is disgusting. But that which lives at the foundation of the heart is love. The heart lives only when it loves. It is then like the sun. And 'chastity' is the state of the human being in which the heart , having become solar, is the center of 'gravity'. In other words, chastity is the state of the human being where the center named in Eastern esotericism as the ''twelve petalled lotus'' is awakened and becomes the 'sun' of the microcosmic 'planetary system'..." [Taken from 'letter 5' of the book by Tomberg]. Understand those keys [highlighted] to define the parts within the whole, i.e.,...

"...having become 'solar', is the center of gravity." Like attracts like - including 'knowledge' - link to ''synchronicity''. It also defines the preoccupation [especially in those ancient days] of the earth [instead of the sun] - being at the center of the ''planetary system.'' i.e.,representation of something - other than the obvious....

"Sirius is sometimes called the 'Sun behind the sun', indicating that while the star we call the Sun is related to our physical center of Self in our Solar Plexus and the expression of our Selves within the physical earth, Sirius represents a more hidden center." ['Red Tree, White Tree'].

As seen from a different perspective: "Among the great initiate wisdom which has proceeded from China is the literature attached to the 'Book of Change', the I Ching...Among the basic 64 archetypal figures {images?} or hexagrams, is one which deals with inner truth. The Chinese character {image?} which denotes {represents?} 'truth' is an archaic picture of a bird resting its protective claws on the head of a newly hatched 'young'. The ancient sages pictured truth as a delicate thing, egg born, and in perpetual need of protection. On a deeper level the 'hexagram' deals with the consequences of 'love', for love itself is nothing more than the recognition in another person of the truth within his/her soul." ['The Zelator'. Includes italics only - with the exception of the word in bold print]. Try ''claw/s'' and/or ''young/est'' then finally ''hexagram''.

The program 'Ancient Aliens' attempts to understand 'egg' symbolism throughout all ages. To understand the parts within the whole - define SUBJECT material - not just little green chaps from Mars.

137 6A different take: "And so for thousands of years the geocentric view of the universe was never questioned. Aristotle and others thought of these things in detail. They noticed that when they dropped things they fell to the earth - the center of the earth - so there must have been something special about the center - it must be the center of the universe. These arguments were so persuasive that it was millennia before they were overturned." ['Human Universe' / narrated by B. Cox]. Try ''mandala'' for a different take on the same theme {principle?}.

A correct analysis of a MIND SET - beyond { 'horizon'?} 1st impressions: "In confused but suggestive context, it is interesting to note that there are some specific references to Britain in Greek mythology as the Hyperborean Lands {i.e., those beyond the north wind}, true home of Apollo. Geoffrey, therefore, cloaks his star lore in Greek mythological terminology, and in Greek astrological references. To come to grips with this literary and quite normal substitution; forthe medieval scholar was imbued with certain aspects of classical symbolism; wemust repeatedly consider the function of the being, star, or constellation described. It is through this attitude {mind set?} that we make the primal connections necessary to bring the magic of the prophecies alive. The geocentric system provides the map for the stages of the cosmic 'vision', and is basically the map still employed by the astrologers today, though geocentrism is no longer accepted as a physical model of the universe. One of the most common place errors in judging the geocentric system is to assume that it is invalid because disproven. As a conceptual model relating to consciousness and the human situation {in relation to that ''bit''}, the geocentric and Elemental system is an excellent analogy. It also provides the starting point for a sequence for inner realizations, by which the consciousness apprehends {'intuitive leap'?} models of reality which are at the foundation of our group-world." [ Page 139 'The Prophetic Vision of Merlin: Prediction, Psychic Transformation, and the Foundation of the Grail Legends in an Ancient Set of Visionary Verses'. Parenthesis, this readers].

AND/OR: "Although we have suggested that the primal lore is 'ancient British', its primacy is shared by all races, and is not a property of any one people." [Same book. Page 138].

Try ''Homer''.

"...the development of human consciousness was the result of spiritual and not {at first} of physical changes in man..." [from the book by C. Merry].

Question. When ALL the available information is TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT - what do you think?

nn

Where have you seen him before?

"The wonderful thing about metaphors is that they are simultaneously real and unreal. When I presented an early version of chapter 1 as a lecture in Atlanta, two evolutionary biologists came to it, thinking that it was about real 'microscopes' and 'telescopes' {i.e.,subjective/objective understanding; application; and use of 'mythology' from a personal and collective point of view - i.e.,microscopic / telescopic}. They stayed through the whole lecture and talked to me afterward about the double vision in their fields, the unfortunate schism between people who focus on tiny details and people who dream about the big picture, and the difficulty of getting them to talk to one another...David Green, once described his frustration on seeing a fox yards away from young hounds who had their noses to the ground and insisted on following the scent off into the distance where the fox had been and back again to where he was now - but would not be for long. An older hound would have the sense to look up. Scholars bogged down in their rigid ways of scenting their prey are often forced by the comparative evidence to look up and see what is right in front of them, for the more obvious; and invisible {hidden?} human truths." ['The Implied Spider: Politics and Theology in Myths'].

''To hide something successfully - hide it in plain sight."

As {one} example: "It is also true that climatological variations, be it only of a few degrees, can produce important effects on all life. A drop in temperature drives all beings to other climates, just as the persistence of a higher temp., will witness the birth of new plant and animal worlds. These climatological modifications obey sidereal {horizontal?} variations, and if the principle movements of our solar system are well known, others are less so. Such is the strange influence of celestial regions, such as the power of Sirius - that central {vertical?} 'sun' of the Pharaonic sages - upon 'climates' {inner?} and on our entire solar system." ['Sacred Science' / Schwaller De Lubicz. Emphasis, this readers].

Geocentric?

Cold {and/or 'dark'} in relation to warm {and/or 'light'} - ALL as a means...? Understanding that {principle?} gives clues as to the 'direction' to look {follow?} to locate - or at least estimate a possible burial location.

"In relation to the term 'world' it is necessary to understand from the very outset that there are many 'worlds', and that we live in not one world, but in several worlds. This is not really understood because in ordinary language the term 'world' is generally used in the singular. And if the plural 'worlds' is used it is merely to emphasis, as it were, the same idea, or to express the idea of various worlds existing parallel to one another. Our language does not have the idea of worlds contained one within another. And yet the idea that we live in different worlds precisely implies worlds contained one within another to which we stand in different relations {relative?}." ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

Understanding that universal constant 'bit' {Micro} within that framework {Macro} makes sense of the above. As does...

"But where can man [or woman] find truth? If he seeks deep enough in himself he will find it revealed, each man may know his own heart. He may send a ray of his intelligence into the depths of his soul and search its bottom, he may find it to be as infinitely deep as the sky above his head. He may find corals and pearls, or watch the monsters of the deep. If his thought is steady and unwavering, he may enter the innermost sanctuary of his own temple and see the goddess unveiled. Not every one can penetrate the depths, because the thought is easily led astray; but the strong and persistent searcher will penetrate veil after veil, until at the inner most center it discovers the germ of truth, which, awakened to consciousness, will grow into a sun that illuminates the whole of the interior world, wherein everything is contained." [quote from within the book by F. Hartman]. Try ''midnight sun''.

Sun on the ascendant? or just 'in' the constellation? AS A MEANS...?

A working example: "Very frequent mention was made of this constellation in early days, for the Platonists held that souls of men, when released from corporeity, ascended to heaven through its stars, whence it was called the Gate of The Gods {'H'?}; their road of descent having been through Cancer. But some of the Orientals knew it as the Southern Gate of the Sun {'Ascendant'?}, as did the Latins in their altera Solis Porta. Berossos is reported by Seneca to have learned from the old books of Sargon that the world would be 'destroyed' by a great conflagration when all the planets met in this sign." [info., on 'Capricorn' within the book 'Star Names and Their Meaning'].

A side step: "It has been said that death came into existence only with the rise of mans consciousness, a round about way of saying death is more real for humans than for any other animal, because only humans foresee it. Religions owe their existence to the unique ability of the human animal to understand that it must die. Against this realization the forces of imagination are mustered to deny it. Its hard for any perceiving mind to perceive its own not being, with cessation of all perception. Worshipers of Kali managed to view the beyond death state as, 'Dreamless sleep'. But most ancient people could not formulate an idea of non - perception.".........."Babylonian literature reveals a hope that eventually the right ritual cure for death will be discovered, rather as modern people hope for a cure for cancer. The Recommended avenue of investigation [in those days] was necromantic consultation with the dead themselves. The quest for immortality was essentially the search for the right ritual, ['repetitive' link]...the knowledge of what to do in order to secure a continued existence of the 'body' after death. This knowledge is possessed by the ancestors, and can only be obtained from them." [Page 214, 'The Woman's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets' by Barbara Walker].

These days that information can be got by research, the objective analysis of which, results in ''knowledge''.

A working example, i.e.,by way of an objective exercise: "He also became a mathematical geographer and while a lecturer at the university of Louvain, became a close friend of Mercator, with whose name we are still familiar in Mercator's projection, which is a convention used in map making to depict a spherical world on a flat piece of paper. Indeed Dee brought back with him to Mercator's globes...What we are seeing is the first attempt of modern mankind to conceptualize the world as a physical celestial object. To do this, man had to stand out of the world, so to speak {objective?}, and view it as if an observer in space, from the background of the stars, almost indeed as if he were himself a 'star' being. So these mathematical geographers of the time were the first modern ''planetary men''. This marked a great step forward in human self consciousness, and John Dee was at the forefront." ['I Called it Magic' / G. Knight].

"I journeyed with this man for one and a half days over an uninhabited, stony plain until we came to a little hill on which grew bushes and trees. Here, my guide ['Aaron'] informed me, i would 'connect' with my man. I asked my guide to go on, but he refused, turned around with his mule...and for some unknown reason left me. I knew of no other way of getting help and advice than to submit to the ultimate help and cried out his high name. He quickly heard me, because as i lifted my eyes, i saw an old man approaching. His friendly greeting was in the Chaldaic language, he asked me to 'follow' him. In this event i recognized the high foresight of god ['Adonai'] . Very politely he lead me into the place where he 'lived'. There i learned his name - Abramelin - and in time also the foundation and structure of wisdom." [Taken from book one, 'The Book of Abramelin' by G.Dehn and S. Guth. Emphasis, this readers]. Originally written by Abraham Von Worms.

'Worms'. A German city. What some call...Little Jerusalem. The city's emblem being the Dragon. The German word for ''dragon'' is worm. South to North? Representation of?

The place where he lived...Araki...near the turn in a river. Question. Another riddle? Wisdom expected to be found within it?

Grey Worm? {Game of Thrones}.

As is {unbeknown by author}..."Everywhere around Harran are sites associated with stories from the book of Genesis. On Cudi Dag {Mount al-Judi}, in the mountains to the east of Harran, Noah's 'ark' is said to have made first landfall after the 'waters' of the great flood receded. Here too Noah established his first post-flood settlement, leaving his son Shem to continue his journey into the Eastern Taurus mountains, where also Seth, the 'son of' Adam, lived after his father and mother's expulsion from the 'garden' of Eden. Even Harran itself, where Abraham dwelled with his family, had more ancient biblical connections, as tradition insists that Cainan, a 'grandson' {i.e.,''triple'' link} of Shem, 'founded' the city. He was the originator of Chaldaism, the knowledge of the 'stars' as practiced by the Sabaeans of Harran." [From the book 'Gobekli-tepe' by A. Collins. All emphasis, this readers].

continued {2nd 'half'?}...More significantly, the book of Genesis records that the primordial garden where Adam and Eve, the First couple, existed in a state of innocence and bliss before the time of the Fall, was located at the source of the 4 rivers of Paradise, two of which can easily be identified as the Tigris and Euphrates. They take their rise in the mountains to the north east of Harran. Here somewhere lies the original Garden of Eden, tended over by the angels of god, returning me to the pressing questions that had preoccupied my childhood: Who or what are angels? Where did they come from, and did they have some kind of earthly tangibility? As i climbed Harran's giant occupational mound, which rises above the ruined city, and stared out towards the mesmeric Astronomical Tower, i felt i was getting closer to some real answers. For even as the first bible stories were being played out across the region, Harran was already extremely old...Known as Tell Idris...being an Arabic name for antediluvian patriarch Enoch, the great grandfather of Noah...accredited with the authorship of one of the strangest and most mystifying religious texts ever written. Called the book of Enoch, it recounts how Enoch..." [Same book].

gross analogy

A weight in relation to horizontal / vertical. 'Innocent' of. [Key],i.e.,link to 'naked' and/or youngest symbolism, [from unknown to known. Potential of]. Together with, ''Truth did not come into the world naked, but it came in types and images. One will not receive truth in any other way.'' [Gospel of Philip 67.9-11]. AND ''The Pharisees and the scribes have taken the keys of knowledge and hidden them. They themselves have not entered, nor have they allowed to enter those who wish to. You however, be as wise as serpents and as innocent as doves.'' [Jesus, Gospel of Thomas 39]. While recalling Cronos, who was Lord of Time, Eternity, and weighty concerns. [Quote taken from, Jesus Christ Sun of God. Ancient Cosmology and Early Christian Symbolism' by D. Fideler].

"The stubborn, passionate, long suffering ass is a perfect natural symbol of our rational personality. It bears like an ass, the weight of all our suffering, and carries us through life. Yet paradoxically, it is the same stubborn 'ass', and only the ass, that can carry the rebel to salvation; mounted upon the ass, man is mounted upon his own rebellion. The ass is the 'father' of all rebels, but also the carrier of redemption". [Page 89. 'Rebel in the Soul' by Bika Reed]. Think about it relative to 'Anubis' and the 'dog' star. Meanings of. [The jackal was sometimes associated with the ass or donkey].

Or.... "Increased concentration of the conscious individual is the trend. Then these personality 'fragments' [link to 'aspects of'. This readers input], or images can be kept under self scrutiny without taxing the present ego to distraction. Now, what you would call the subconscious performs this task: not to well, since it was never meant to focus clear attention. Consciousness will expand within your plane. The scope of consciousness will be so broadened that all personality 'fragments', personality images, and individual 'fragments' in succeeding incarnations will be held in clear focus [repetitive, of the positive over the negative link. This readers input]... without strain. It is toward this that evolution is headed, though of course, at its usual donkey - slow rate." [ Page 24/5, 'The Seth Material'].

"The relation between body and soul, and all together between the spirit of things and their corporeality, may be expressed by the example of a rider on horse back. A rider who is in control and guides his steed can go much further than he can go on foot. How aptly then does the image of the Messiah as a poor man riding on a donkey describe the human predicament; the divine spark borne and guiding, the physical donkey, bearing up and waiting for guidance and 'power'."[Chapter three 'The Thirteen Petalled Rose. Mentioned elsewhere].

Or..."Swedenborg had finally found the soul. His anatomical work was unnecessary. The soul is the life, the spirit, the inner of mans experience. The quality of this life is the quality of the man. Swedenborg rejected airy, abstract ideas of the soul that are not experienced." [Chapter 4, 'The Presence of Other Worlds'].

Side note: "Why should a Fool carry a 'weight' on the end of a straight stick? And what is in that 'heavy' bag, tied to the stick?...What is in your heavy bag Mark? ['The Zelator'].

The 'summit' of 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. ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

Define those keys to understand {'see'?} that 'missing' link.

"Read not to contradict and confute; nor to believe and take for granted; nor to find talk and discourse; but to weigh and consider." ['Of Studies' 1625. / F. Bacon].

"Since one incarnation on earth cannot possibly be sufficient, the personalty must return again and again in order to achieve the maximum development." [Introduction 'Alchemists Handbook' by F. Albertus]. Question. 'Seven' in relation to 'eight' ?

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

"A beggarly union of genius and fire.'' Quote by Albert the 'great' - teacher of Thomas Aquinas. Recall the meaning of 'genius' in the east as opposed to its counterpart in the west. ''Beggarly'' in relation to say a - 'fool'.

All the above a link to the meaning [and difference] to ''incarnation'' relative to ''reincarnation'' and its purported relevance to each individual. Find it to understand it - rather than leave to those first impressions. Question. One big 'magical' fairy story?

A {working?} example ,i.e.,when all the above is applied to the following: "These are 'higher' states of consciousness that open onto new horizons of understanding and wisdom. You may have had such an experience as children when we were less weighed down by the things that now preoccupy us. You may even have fallen for the illusion that those times of bliss and wonder are gone forever along with the other delights of childhood. But that is not the case. We are meant to dwell permanently in this habitat of the soul where higher consciousness dwells. It is possible to taste and live this joy and freedom, this inner awakening, even during rush hour, even at the office, even when circumstances around you are difficult." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way'].

Follow the title of the book to see how that 'working method' is represented within the subject as a whole.

bbbb (2)Analogy of same {as an exercise?} - in the abstract sense of the 'word': "For i was scarcely fallen asleep, when i thought that i, together with an innumerable multitude of men, lay fettered with great chains in a dark dungeon, in which, without the least glimpse of light, we swarmed like bees one over the other...But although neither i nor any of the rest could see one jot, yet i continually heard one heaving himself above another, when his chains and fetters had become ever so slightly lighter...Now when i with the rest had continued a good while in this affliction, and each was still reproaching the other with his blindness and captivity, at length we heard many 'trumpets' sounding together and kettle drums beating...During this noise the cover of the dungeon was lifted up 'from above', and a little light let down to us...We all went pall-mell, and he who perchance had heaved himself up to much, was forced down again under the others feet. In brief, each one strove to be uppermost. Neither did i linger, but with my weighty fetters slipped up from under the rest, and then heaved myself upon a stone, which i laid hold of...I was caught several times by others, for whom yet as well as i might, i still guarded myself with hands and feet. For we imagined no other but that we should all be set liberty, which yet fell out quite otherwise. For after the 'nobles' who looked upon us 'from above' through the hole had recreated themselves a while, with our struggling and lamenting, a certain hoary-headed ancient man called us to be quiet, and began to speak thus: If the poor human race were not so arrogant it would have been given much good from my mothers heritage. But because the human race will not take heed it lies in such straits and must be held in prison. And yet my dearest mother will not regard their mischief; she leaves her lovely gifts that many a man might come to the light, though this may be by chance and seldom...Therefore in honour of the feast which we shall hold today, that her grace may be multiplied; a good work will she do: the rope will now be lowered, whoever may hang on to it, he shall be freed." [Extract from the book 'Alchemical Amphitheatre'. Mentioned elsewhere - in relation to a ''wedding''. All emphasis and italics - this readers input].

Question. Can you 'see' - as an exercise only - what all those different keys [archetypes?] represent? To determine the validity [or not] of a 'subject' - OR 'dream' sequence? Among others try ''rope'' and ''feast'' to add or detract from.

Exercise: "But because the human race..." in relation to "Troy was thus strategically placed to control trade through the fast flowing narrows that separate Europe from the East and connect the Black Sea to the Aegean. Perhaps to enforce the collection of tolls, Troy would have required military power and in turn would have been subject to the envy and resentment of other powers. Other suggested sources of the city's wealth have included a thriving fishing industry and horse breeding, the later perhaps explaining Homer's epithet of ''tamer of horses'' for Hector of Troy. Such a city would have been known throughout the Aegean and beyond, wherever traders discussed their deals and bemoaned whatever tolls may have been levied by the Trojans; and wherever sailors complained about the time they wasted lying at anchor waiting for a favorable wind to help them through the straits." ['Homer's Secret Iliad' / F. and K. Wood].

That ''fall' {Macro?} that becomes the beginning of something {Micro?}.

And/or: "Belloc's theory of how geological features determined the route used by prehistoric travellers is set out in chapter two of The Old Road...It emphasises the central role of the south-facing chalk escarpment bordering the edge of the North Downs when he states: 'A man who should leave the straits with the object of reaching the Hampshire centers would find a moderately {i.e.,not bent as in a ''bent pyramid''?} - steep, dry, chalky slope, always looking full towards the southern sun, bare of trees....not indented with combes or projecting spurs....Here then is the first twist in the Pilgrim's Way story, because at Farnham, Belloc's travellers did not forsake the chalk escarpment for the valleys below....Instead they kept to the chalk on the 'higher' ground and took an ancient trackway that became known as the Harroway or Hoar Way...." [Page 29/30 'The Pilgrims Way / Derek Bright]. Continued elsewhere.

Try ''escarpment'' / ''strait'' / etc. To determine a mindset.

Question. Local or universal?

hytgrf''....but here is a place where something of great interest might be discovered....Maypoles were set up in innumerable villages throughout the country....were they connected to 'giants'? The reason which makes me wonder may seem very trivial. It is just this: The last Cambridgeshire Maypole used to be raised on Orwell Hill, beside the ancient MARE WAY, at its junction with a road which is often thought of as Roman. Orwell Hill is a high chalk down overlooking the villages of Orwell, Harlton and Eversden. Eversden means 'the boar's wood', if it was originally a Saxon name, or 'boar hill' if it was Celtic. It seems possible that this name did not refer to some famous wild boar of the wood of that name, but to some effigy of a boar used in a ceremony on the hill...." [Page 82 'GogMagog' / T. Lethbridge].

All the above explained by nothing more than common research by way of objectivity together with the proverbial...pinch of salt. Objectivity over subjectivity, that arrives at an understanding of those main keys, [symbols]...that expresses that common framework in 'picture' form. To be unraveled / encrypted by the reader. That objectivity that 'enlightens' the reader to the underlying core essence of all ‘religions’. Its ’esoteric’ side. What some of these authors refer to as ‘head knowledge'. The theoretical side. Its practical application being the ‘subjectivity’ aspect to it, i.e., If ‘B’ exists then to apply that theory / understanding in order to get to ‘C’. Which has that certain logic to it, i.e., application of that now ‘aware knowledge’. As a side note, some believe that the practical [subjective] side can be 'experienced' while in 'A'. Commonly known within this subject as an 'out of body' experience. [See Mr Monroe's or Celia Green books].

Question. 'Glass Ship' link?

Monroe; was someone who accidently experienced same in the normal course of daily events as many individuals seem to do - if the literature on {same} is to be believed. The only difference is - unlike most - rather than ignore or hide from it - he 'sought' the same experience in order to evaluate it - to understand it.

'The Saint With Two Bodies'. From chapter 3, of the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'.

This author cannot comment on same, simply because this authors prime aim is to understand the subject for its own sake. Nothing more. Simply to satisfy a curiosity. To satisfy something that was once an unknown. Something that this reader was at one time, ignorant of. The way this reader sees it, if 'B' does exist [and after weighing up all the available evidence, it will not surprise this reader if such an 'event' does turn out to be true], then because of that understanding , that understanding of a subject, that awareness should help in any 'adjustments' needed. For this reader no 'real time' experience is wanted or wished for. Should 'B' exist we will have all the time 'in the world', for such 'experiences'. The 'Ghost train' [ as an imaginary teaser] will suffice till then. [No pun intended].

Those benefits however of understanding the subject through objectivity. Rather than leaving all to those first impressions. Regardless of whether the ‘practical’ side will ever become relevant are...

A...It satisfies a curiosity.

www (2)B...You begin to see what a so called ‘esoteric’ collection looks like {A MIND SET?}. Notice the diversity of subjects. For a more detailed and in depth 'list' see Mr J. Blacks, 'Selective Bibliography' at the later end of his book 'The Secret History of the World'. A very informed reader, which his personnel notes, and descriptions, together with 'eureka' moments of same, bear out. This reader, is as yet to find a more extensive one. The author R. A. Wilson defines the same in the Macro sense of the ''word'' within the title of the book 'The Cosmic Trigger' and in 'its' Micro sense as a ''blinding flash'' and/or ''mini-Satori''. N.B. T. S. Eliot refers to the same, as ''a timeless moment.'' [Chapter one, 'The Zelator']. The ancient Egyptians referred to it as ''intelligence of the heart.'' The author Teilhard de Chardin defines the same [in part] within the word 'Reflexion.' Enlarged elsewhere. The aftermath of which becomes intuition.

Analogy of same,i.e.,with the same intent is the word Dasein as used by Henry Corbin of Sufi fame as explained by T. Cheetham within the book 'The World Turned Inside Out': "Dasein is, literally translated as 'being there'. It provides the condition for the possibility of anything being present at all...He stresses that the da of Dasein is the 'act of presence'. " What T. Cheetham defines as the 'Psychology of Presence'. [Chapter 7]. See it?

And/or "...THE revelation by which the Hidden Treasure reveals itself to itself." [Same book]. Try ''treasure''.

Such authors as Francisco de Osuna {mentioned elsewhere} defines that same process and/or action of the mind with the ''path of recollection''.

Try 'Remembering/Forgetting'.

Plotinus describes it as ''a knowing principle''. Enlarged elsewhere.

A working example: "He is so tense, as a result of this internal disorder, that he fails to notice the various minor 'actors' on the scene - some 'good intentions' in the foreground, an ancient spite coming in, ambitions elbowing their way to the front, all of them making eddies in the currents that influence him {ebb 'n' flow link}. Yet the poor man imagines himself alone, as he struggles with his uncertainty. But watch! Something has touched his spiritual mainspring, and from the depths of his substance a vague awareness wakens, a light comes into the hero's eyes, and from 'heaven', as if by chance, comes a flash, revealing an unforeseen solution." ['The Opening of the Way'].

The author of 'Meditations on the Tarot' defines that 'action of the mind' with: "...the vision of the unity of beings and things through the immediate perception of their correspondences - through consciousness concentrated without effort." Page 20.

Try ''simultaneously''. Different take on the same theme. OR universal?

Alchemy's equivalent of same..."Think of the whole six month Alchemical course and notice the first thing that comes to mind where you had a ''aha'' or ''umm...fascinating!" feeling. Associate fully inside yourself and your memory of that event so that you may recall what you saw and heard when you felt that feeling. Was it something you read, observed, thought about later, something someone said that clicked with an alchemical idea? An image in the course of a book?" [Extract taken from the final chapter entitled 'The Hall of Alchemical Memory' from the book 'Alchemical Amphitheatre' by M. Katz].

"An image in the course of a book..." That ''image'' could be landscapes equivalent of same principle, i.e., the HA HA lawn. Get it? Explained elsewhere.

Analogy of same..."When your consciousness has been thoroughly prepared to experience this truth, the direct perception will unfold naturally in your awareness. This can be related to the ''aha!'' moment when what you have been contemplating {or studying} makes perfect sense, because you experience the truth of it from within. The truth moves from concept to reality." [From the book by R. Kurczak. Emphasis etc, this readers].

Hence the link to such statements as 'Samadhi' being equated with "cognitive absorption,'' {see ''cognitive'' in Part 1} - i.e.,"This first chapter is entitled 'The Chapter on Samadhi, or cognitive absorption'. The word 'Yoga' in this sutra {i.e., sutras of Patanjali} refers to the state of Samadhi. Yoga means to unite or yoke together. Samadhi is a state of consciousness in which awareness results in an elevated state of consciousness often referred to as spiritual." [Same book].

"The nature of the Stone is central to our dilemma as students of the esoteric tradition; it is both quest and destination, both ourselves and other, tool and product, it is the eye that observes and cannot see itself, knowing itself through exhaustion of all possibilities through experiment, [and/or study. This readers input]. It is indeed, the mystery of awareness." [M. Katz book]. AS IS...

"Our Stone is the quintessence of the Four Elements, separated from them and reduced into a fifth essence - being extracted out of the body of the first matter."

''Stone'' in relation to 'Primordial mound' - both in relation to a 'learning curve'. Representational of.

"Stones are bones of the earth, and the soil 'her' flesh." [Douglas Monroe]. Try ''garment''.

Understand the above to define the following: "Albert was a rock hound. He collected specimens from sites of evacuations or mines he came across in his travels and catalogued their properties. In his work 'De Mineralibus' {The Book of Minerals}, he mentioned alchemy again and said it was ''a beggarly union of genius and fire''. Thomas Aquinas, Albert's student, concurred with Albert's conclusions: alchemists could probably make 'gold' but it was ''a difficult art''. ['The Chemistry of Alchemy']. 'See' anything, i.e.,all three authors are hinting at something that is NOT represented as the obvious - on first read. That includes the author of the above book.

Understanding the above defines the following: "The diamonds can be found even in the mud - the waters wash them clean. Nuggets of gold {philosophy} are not for you. Seek diamonds, sparkling truth, the clarity, perfection of the Word. The whirlpools of life carry you to where the diamonds are. Resonate to the perfection of the crystals. Arduous seeking is not necessary. The path is already mapped out. You have only to follow the clues." ['Truth Vibrations' by D. Icke. Includes parenthesis]. Try ''crystalliz{s}ation'' and/or ''nuggets'' and/or ''map''.

Question. The 'psychic' Way?

"When people talk about opening your third eye, they mean activating your psychic powers, which we all have, though some more than others. The crown chakra is the point of entry for thought forms from the spirit realms, which sensitives can turn into words. It is through this chakra, that we tune into higher levels of intelligence and wisdom." [Same book. Emphasis, this readers].

The above author defines ''nuggets of gold'' as 'philosophy'. This reader would add 'esoteric philosophy'. Recall the distinction between the ancient and present meaning of same. Enlarged elsewhere.

green

On the lookout for Mr Icke?

A working example: "Only good will come from the written word that i write here. The spirit of trees and the green earth surrounds me {'Green language'}. On the plain a single tree tells a story i can't quite remember. The sound of horses and men survive in the echo of the past. All these voices are there to be heard {inner ear?}. They come in silence filling the valley with the strength of there 'numbers'. There has been bloodshed {death/rebirth?}. Also the mystery of words kept inside great books in the care of hooded men. The words are to be unravelled, the story told. There is fear of destruction, a secret somewhere which holds together this place {apocalypse/revelations link}. Here there was quiet, now it is trampled upon. Somewhere there is a light that must continue to shine...Hold fast to the truth that walks the way, follow the paths that lead to the 'hills', wash in the water over the 'stones'. Turn them until the 'sound' is made {inner ear?}. There will be power to guide the feet along the tracks...They will end in high places, for it is the looking down {objective view?} on Creation, that will preserve all things...Look into the sun with closed {inner?} eyes. Let the 'tree' branches carry the light in different directions. This is the 'Old Way' in the hills. The rocks remember where the 'fire' burned. The men must walk {i.e.,not 'run'} if it is to be saved. Follow the paths. The 'energy' {river?} must flow again. Take care. Carry the rock. " [Same book. All emphasis, parenthesis, this readers].

All the above explained by the author {from 'automatic writing'} - as a reference to ''ley-lines''. Define those keys {highlighted in one form or another} - to 'see' something beyond the obvious OR at least to see something beyond the psychic point of view, i.e.,as {one} EXAMPLE -the sentence highlighted in italics - in relation to clues - among other things - as to the final resting place of Genghis Khan.

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

 

 

Question 2. Which would be most suited within say, a curriculum?

C...If the subject does attain main stream status and becomes part of the curriculum then a qualification can be attained and added to the normal list.

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

"We must first consider the difference between the evaluation of a course of study and its assessment. The evaluation of a curriculum in the secular sense is the process by which the 'nature and desirability' of a course is given 'value or worth'; but to define the extent to which a course is 'workable and effective' requires a form - or forms - of assessment. These forms of assessment create the basis for the evaluation of the effectiveness of a course in meeting the intended aim specified by those who create the course, understood by those teaching it, and received by those learning." [Extract from the book 'The Magister'].

The ''READERS Way'' works just as well as any other 'way' - the results of which should bring about a positive assessment for the subject as a whole - as proven - if any of those ''proofs'' are verified. Yes or No?

Dream_Caused_by_the_Flight_of_a_Bumblebee_around_a_Pomegrana

Painting by Salvador Dali. ''Dream caused by the flight of a Bumblebee around a Pomegranate, a second before awakening.'' The humble bee. One of this subjects key symbols. Egypt especially. Found within many a Royal Cartouche. A direct link to Kingship, of which, according to myth; Herod failed in. [ Bees by R. Steiner and especially The Sacred Bee {in ancient times and folklore} by Hilda Ransome]. Question. Where have you seen a similar representation that includes the elephant? Question two. What does it represent? Clue. Why is the ''cube'' no longer there? Or is it in another 'form'. What does that represent? Why should anything be represented at all?

D...While ‘studying’. There is the possibility of paying off the mortgage, and/or {if within a school curriculum} - the wine gum; milky bar; crisp; choc - biscuit; marshmallow and [lastly?] the immortal - Jammie Dodgers - slate clean. Oop's sorry; forgot the Cokes and Pepsi's - sugar free of course - right boys and girls? i.e., theres still more tombs to be found. Herod is one. Akhenaten another, [explained elsewhere]. Are all the Persian / Assyrian kings found? What about other cultures? Especially those that relate to ‘Kingship’. Question. As an example. Some say that Herod... " Stole the throne like a fox, ruled like a tiger, died like a dog". Where would the 'authorities' legitimate or otherwise, bury someone whom they believed did not fulfill the requirements of Kingship? His Sarcophagus was found. His body was not. [National Geographic. 'Herod's lost Tomb'], i.e.,where would a 'dog' be buried?

The author of 'The Synchronicity Key' [unbeknown to same] gives clues within his well researched book of same. Enlarged elsewhere.

"The child of Osiris and Nephthys is Anubis, the Jackal - headed god. A fit symbol when we remember that the home of the Jackal is the desert edge and his hunting grounds are the fertile lands where man and their leavings abound." [Quote from within the book, 'The Forgotten Mage'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"I came to the gate, where some dozen or so devils were playing tennis...in their hands they held rackets of fire; but what amazed me still more was that, books, apparently full of wind and rubbish, served them for tennis balls, a strange and marvelous thing." [Chapter 70, 'Don Quixote' by M . Cervantes]. Try ''strange'' in the usual box.

'Devil in the details'?

"Caph. - To change into gold not only all metals but also the earth itself, and even refuse of the earth." [Taken from the introduction to the book 'Transcendental Magic' by E. Levi.

"The terrors of death are the daughters of ignorance, and death herself is only hideous by reason of the rubbish which covers her, and the sombre hues with which her images are surrounded." [same book]. Other clues - elsewhere.

A {working?} example: "Whether our master had in mind an intentional symbolism in this request to clear out the upper room, we shall never know. We had realized some considerable time ago that the main impediment to our spiritual development lay in our untrained thinking, as much as in the accumulation of debris in our minds..." ['The Zelator'].

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

"Saturn is also named the Lord of Decrease...his power manifests in the later stages of decay. He rules over the spoiled, the filth and the refuse of society..." ['Saturn and the Theoretical Foundations of an Emerging Discipline'].

See something from the astrology point of view.

"Astrology must be something social...In a true Astrology only what is universally human is considered and NOT the satisfaction of the egoism of the human being...The zodiac addresses the sensitive realm of our emotional life, rather than our intellects or minds. The ancient esoteric symbolism was not designed to speak directly to the 'intellects' of men: rather, it was the pride of the human intellect which later relegated such things as this zodiac, and made of them discarded images." ['The Secret Zodiac'].

'Tower of Babel' V 'Gnosis'? As a means...?

Follow the title of the book to see it in {from?} the spirit/soul point of view {intuitive?}.

E... Finally. Last but not least. If B/C do exist. Then because of that understanding of a subject we will have an idea of what to expect and whats expected. Wont we. If only in the sense of a possible 'purpose' and 'direction'. Think about it.

"The chiefest cause, to read good books, that moves each studious mind, is hope, some pleasure sweet therein, or profit good to find. Now what delight can greater be, than secrets for to know, of Sacred Bees, the Muses Birds, all of which this book doth show." [Charles Butler, 'The Feminine Monarchie,' 1609 . Extract taken from the inset pages of the book, 'The Sacred Bee']. Think on it, relative to what ''food'' represents... in this subject.

Another book {of secrets?} that attempts to define something: "Separate thou the 'earth' from the fire, the subtle from the gross sweetly with great industry. It ascends from the earth to the heaven and again it descends to the earth and receives the force of things 'superior' and 'inferior'. By this means you shall have the glory {''grace''?} of the whole world and thereby all obscurity shall 'fly' from you..."['Emerald Tablet'].

Follow the title of the book.

Question. ''Fly'' in relation to karma?

Flea Bottom? {Game of Thrones}.

"The Muses remind us that all scholarship, even science, is closely allied to the nature of art - perhaps science is especially allied with art because, above all other disciplines, it reveals to us the living beauty of the natural world and the laws upon which it is based. But so much in modern scholarship is artless - and dare we say - lifeless, that we would do well to invoke, not only the Muses, but also there companions, the Graces. By invoking the Muses within the context of modern scholarship we not only recall our roots, but we also affirm the important role of higher inspiration, in the search for authentic knowledge." [Introduction, 'Alexandria: The Journal of the Western Cosmological Traditions' by D. Fideler. Vol. One].

Analogy - in the modern sense of the 'word' - could be - 'Way of Seeing' by J. Berger.

N.B. Enki [of Sumerian fame] was identified with sweet water. ['Symbols of Sacred Science'].

Greek analogy?...- 'zoe' seeks sweetness and finds an intensification in it."

And/or the ''Sweet wine'' in the Odysseus story?

Refresher: "Separate thou the 'earth' from the fire, the subtle from the gross sweetly with great industry. It ascends from the earth to the heaven and again it descends to the earth and receives the force of things 'superior' and 'inferior'. By this means you shall have the glory {''grace''?} of the whole world and thereby all obscurity shall 'fly' from you..."['Emerald Tablet'].

As 'seen' from a different perspective: {can you 'see' it?}: "Note also the saying of our Sages: 'When the universe was created, all things were created with size, intellect, and beauty fully developed, i.e.,everything was created perfect in magnitude and form, and endowed with the most suitable properties; the word zibyonam {their beauty} used here has the same meaning as zebi ''glory'' {Ezek.xx.6}. Note this likewise, for it includes a principle fully established." [Page 216 'Guide for the Perplexed'].

Recall Shulamite/Nefertiti as a means...?

Question. Male/female - which represents ''spirit'' and which ''Soul''? And why?

''He giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night."

the horn

Al-Qurn = The 'horn'. Anything?

In Egyptian mythology, Meretseger (also spelt Mertseger), meaning "she who loves silence" exerted great authority during the New Kingdom era over the Theban Necropolis and was considered to be both a dangerous and merciful goddess.[1] She was closely connected with al-Qurn, the pyramid-shaped peak in the Valley of the Kings.[2] As a cobra-goddess she is sometimes associated with Hathor.[3]

She was the patron deity of the workers in Deir el-Medina who built the tombs. She punished workers who committed crimes, but healed those who repented. In one instance Meretseger is petitioned to bring relief to one in pain. She answered the prayer by bringing "sweet breezes." [4]

SIDE NOTE: {and/or refresher}: "The 'sun' is its father, the 'moon' its mother, the wind hath carried it in its belly, the earth is its nurse." Emerald Tablet.

Question. Shadow and/or anima related? i.e.,if so, what would 'bitter' be represented by?

Celtic analogy: "Every day the Goddess Ceridwen was supposed to gather various charm-bearing herbs {fifteen?} for her Cauldron, the ''sweet Awen'' - choosing her time according to the planetary positions. Taliesin gives a long list of these plants and other ingredients, but it is not clear from the poem {Cadeir Taliesin} whether all of these were brewed in the ''stream of Gwion'' as the liquor was sometimes called. There are red berries, cresses, wort, and vervain; and a plant called selago which is supposed to be the hedge hyssop. But in Nash's translation the latter is not mentioned, but only the ''tree of pure gold''. This tree of pure gold is the ''golden bough'' of Virgil's AEneid - the mistletoe. Selago, is however, mentioned by Pliny, and the passage is quoted in the 'Antiquities of Cornwall' {S/W?} - telling how the selago is a most precious ritual herb '...''which must not be touched by the hand NOR cut with iron''...The {'gathering'} of the mistletoe was also a sacred ceremony..." ['The Flaming Door' - from the chapter entitled 'The Cauldron of Ceridwen'].

Try ''herb/al'' and/or ''mistletoe'' and/or ''gathering'' etc.

Question: ''which must not be touched by the hand NOR cut with iron.'' Why? Can u 'see' it? i.e.,something of that inner ''quality'' not outer. Try ''taboo'' and/or ''quality''.

N.B. Salago found mainly in Southern regions.

Question. If ''Iron'' relates to S/W - what relates to S/E?

"In Sumero-Akkadian mythology, the Tigris and Euphrates were said to take there rise from a primordial water source, a subterranean lake that was the source of all 'sweet water' called Abzu {Apsu}, which came under the patronage of Enki." [From the book 'Gobekli-tepe' by A. Collins].

Primordial 'fountain' in relation to primordial 'mound'. Bingol mountain = ''the summit of the earth, its waters carrying the 'four rivers to the four corners of the world'." [Same book]. On top of that mountain... ''glacial lakes that grace its summit. In the Armenian language, Bingol Mountain is known as Biurakn, which means 'A million eyes', a reference once again, to the countless springs, or 'eyes' that take there rise on its summit..."

'Waters of the Gap'.

Question. To what ''corners'' do the above TWO rivers represent? Clue. Top/down or Bottom/up? ONLY one or the other relates to the word ''sweet''. That same link to the 'Mona Lisa' painting/picture. Enlarged elsewhere.

Understanding this subject solves the 'riddle' set by Samson,i.e.,"What is sweeter than honey, what is stronger than a lion?" [i.e.,knowledge - by way of 'Gnosis' i.e., what it implies,i.e.,getting ones head around it]. After all... ''is 'power' not knowledge?" Same principle as in the Gordian 'knot' riddle. That inner one, i.e.,the true meaning of the word ''esoteric.'' Check it out.

Different culture. Same principle...''You search for savor in various foods - in tea, coffee, Coca-Cola, puddings. You go to restaurants and night clubs. What do you actually get? In search for joy, you yourself become joyless. Your face shrivels; your money gets spent. In place of joy you get disease. Your life passes by. Cooking and tasting all kinds of delicacies, you destroy your own sense of taste. Even the sweetness that was already there disappears. You do not find the real, joyful, pure, and precious nectar that is in your heart." [Chapter one, 'Play of Consciousness'. Mentioned elsewhere. Put those 'keys' together]. Failing that try ''bee'' in the usual box - in relation to curiosity. Benefit of. AND if this subject proves something more than a mental exercise - PURPOSE OF.

A work in progress {that very first one?}: "A study to discover the astronomical role of the smith god Hephaestus led down a path with a surprising end. Every reference to the great artificer was studied, and, by using techniques similar to those used for other interpretations, an astronomical image of the constellation of Perseus emerged. It was also apparent that, in addition to his role as 'creator' of the constellations, Hephaestus had a further role of previously unsuspected importance: 'Then Hephaestus drew sweet nectar from the mixing 'bowl', and served it around among the gods, going from left to right; and the blessed gods laughed out a loud applause as they saw him bustling about the heavenly mansion...But when the sun's glorious light had faded, they went home to bed, each in his own abode, which 'lame' Hephaestus had fashioned for them...The constellations in the southern hemisphere were built by Hephaestus, when he was flung down from Olympus to Lemnos: 'He {Zeus} caught me by the foot and flung me from the heavenly 'threshold'...Eurynome and Thetis, take me to their 'bosom'...There in the realms of Thetis and her home in the constellation Eridanus 'below' the horizon, he stayed for 'nine' years, creating the southern constellations...It is as creator of the glittering armour of Achilles that he is best known...['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

"Gnosis, according to al-Arabi, is not the acquired knowing of profane learning, but rather as the Arabic root suggests, an immediate recognition and grasp not of something new or strange but rather of the state and status of things as they really are, have always been, and eternally will be, which knowledge is inborn in man but later covered over and obscured by the spiritual ignorance encouraged by preoccupation with ephemeral and partial data. It is precisely this gnosis, which is potential in all human kind." [ Chapter 2, 'The Bezels of Wisdom']. 'See' it? A link to the ''minds eye''. Benefit of. Purpose of.

Side note: ''partial data'' - One could also say - 'partial rubbish'. Try ''Herod''.

"Tender-hearted stroke a nettle, And it stings you for your pains. Grasp it like a man of mettle, and it soft as silk remain." ['Paradoxes of the Infinite' / B. Bolzano].

"If there be in mathematics a nettle danger out of which has been plucked the flower safety - it is speculation on O and the {infinite symbol}." Same book. Try ''plant'' and ''flower'' to attempt to grasp what this author is implying.

The 'Hound'.

The ’last’ of anything. A link to the word ‘penile’. That same link to the tail end of something, [see dictionary]. Most important in the conscious sense...as opposed to its twin ‘brother’ or other ‘half’...the normal ‘tail end’ of something. ’Behind’ in relation to ‘in front of’. Shadow as opposed to light. Unconscious of...In relation to, now conscious of,[relative to a 'realization' - an understanding]. By way of a determination, [‘fire’]...A focus...[Hebrew equivalent = "By strength" i.e., one of the two pillars, [of which on top was a pomegranate]. Common parlance..."A Baptism of fire" or even "to take the bull by the horns.". [key]. Represented by the 'horns of consecration'..."a well known Altar emblem, derived from Minoan Crete".[Chapter three 'Riddle of the Sphinx'] ...hence the link to Alexander. Explained elsewhere].

"Spirit or ''fire'' is an immaterial, formless, and universal element, which may become manifest in forms. It is the matrix in which everything was contained before it was thrown into objectivity by the awakening of its will. It is the ''creator'' the great ''carpenter'' of the universe, the ''stepfather of Christ''..." [Quote from the book by F. Hartman]. Understanding that 'universal framework' defines that possibility. Can you see it yet?

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

Then to apply. In order to get to that final destination. An inner’ destination’...within the ’outer’ one. Both those key words, [Tail/Fire]...within the pagan upright phallic symbol. In ‘pillar’ form. Its earliest representation. That one ‘pillar’ that became through an ‘understanding’ two. Both ‘supported’ by those earlier ‘formed’ foundations, by way of thought/emotion/will, i.e., the 'middle' way. Don't forget those first 'impressions', i.e.,not in the crude form. Not even close. Even when taking into account such authors and 'participants' as A. Crowley. 'The Old Sod'. Mentioned within, gives; if only for this reader; an insight into Mr Crowleys true nature, by someone who knew from both a personnel and 'professional' point of view. More circus clown [i.e.,trickster character] than adept. Try ''phallus.''

continued..."Energy is the Sacramental Motive of the Event: it is thus omnipresent, in manifestation by interruption and compensation and otherwise by the corresponding withdrawal..." [Extract from the book 'Little Essays Towards Truth' from the chapter entitled 'Energy' by A. Crowley].

The author using the word 'simple' within the first chapter of the same book in order to define those basic principles - in order to {attempt} - to make them cohesive and therefore intelligible for the reader, i.e., "...discovering thus the common nature of certain things and the essential differences between others, so that ultimately one obtains a simple view of the incalculably vast complexity of the universe." For this reader the book is anything and everything but : - plenty of ''head knowledge'' which Crowley is well known for but presented in his own convoluted {inimitable?} way - as is his very own interpretation on the word 'Magic{K}'. Basically such individuals ''believe'' they can 'circumvent' {'jump-start'?} certain levels {'altered states'} along their own individual path - towards that ultimate goal. They ''believe'' they can 'transcend' certain stages along the way by harnessing those energy levels; especially those {intimate?} ones. In other words {some may say crudely} - they GENUINELY believe they can shag there way to heavens door. In short; they are {possibly?} well and truly - to far gone - up there own tantric sexual backsides.

sex

Same PRINCIPLE - different culture. Find IT to understand IT. Rather than being taught {'shadow'?} - by those FIRST impressions.

The last thing this reader would want on his mind at such a ''moment'' {and/or 'pre' and 'post'} is anything and everything to do with this subject - especially if it only {and/or 'primary'?} includes that objective 'desire' {clause?}. That SOLELY personal one. A good example of ''objectivities'' negative flip {twin} side. If only for this reader.

Question. Could it really be that SIMPLE? In other words IF this subject is a valid one, i.e.,if its core essence proves true, i.e., that life really does continue in all its forms: then there can only be two possibilities as to its 'origins' {mentioned elsewhere} i.e.,simply put - either by evolution, i.e.,as part of the big bang inflation theory - not yet identified or by design - what ever that implies. The main point however is - if it was by design {while remembering that this question is purely hypothetical - possibilities only -} would the ''designers'' have in mind such a ludicrous one, i.e.,the 'copulation way' - the slow but steady {bang, bang?} as you go way? That {selfless?} design, with genuine intent and purpose ; for the sake {we are told} for the benefit of humankind.

Question. Could they be stupid? OR could they think we are?

"To prick ones conscience."

'Oath of the Nights Watch'? {Game of Thrones}.

Apply it to define the following - "When we talk of 'sexualisation' of the vegetable world it is necessary to be clear as to the precise meaning of the term. It is not a question of the actual phenomenon of the fertilization of plants but of a qualitative 'morphological' classification, which is the culmination and expression of an experience of 'mystical' sympathy with the world. It is the 'idea' of life which, projected on to the cosmos, sexualizes it. It is not a matter of making objective or scientific observations but of arriving at an appraisal of the world around us in terms of 'life', and in terms of anthropocosmic destiny, embracing sexuality, fecundity, death and rebirth. Not that men in primitive societies were incapable of objectively {neanderthal/Cro-magnon?} - observing the life of plants. The proof of this is the discovery of the artificial fertilization and grafting of date trees and fig trees in Mesopotamia. These processes had long been known, for at least two paragraphs of the Hammurabi Code legislate on this point. This practical knowledge was afterwards handed down to the Hebrews and Arabs. But the artificial fertilization of fruit trees was not looked upon as a horticultural technique, efficient in itself, but as a ritual; the fact that it involved vegetable fertility implied man's 'sexual' participation." ['The Forge and the Crucible' / M. Eliade]. Try ''vegetative'' and/or ''fig'' . Finally ''mustard'' - to {distinguish?} something further.

'The Practical Handbook of Plant Alchemy' / Manfred M. Junius.

''You know nothing, Jon Snow''.

continued..."We are dealing here therefore with a general conception of cosmic reality seen as Life and consequently endowed with sex; sexuality being a particular sign of all living reality. Starting from a certain cultural level, the entire world - the world of nature as well as the world of things and tools made by man - is presented as endowed with sex. The examples which follow have been expressly selected from different cultural milieux so as to show how widespread and persistent such conceptions are. The Kitara divided ores into male and female; the former, hard and black, are found near the surface; the latter, soft and red, are extracted from inside the mine. The mingling of the two 'sexes' is indispensable to fruitful fusion. This is of course an objectively arbitrary classification. But it was the total union of reality which mattered, for it justified the rite {'Sacred' act?} namely the 'marriage of the metals', and this last made possible a birth." [Same book, i.e.,by M. Eliade]. Try ''flint'' and ''pit/mine'' to see if you agree/disagree.

'Metal of the mind'?

A side step. Remember what it was that the 'trickster character' stole. Together with..."Promethus, who brought 'fire' to mankind, was a Titan whose name means foresight." Think about it in relation to 'hindsight'. Try Part 1.

Question. If 'stolen' - how can it be earned? Gnosis?

Side note: "The classical myths of the Titans are the clearest representations which when studied offer a profound message about the way we 'see' the earth....The clue lies in the use of the word 'Titanic' - originally meaning 'Lord', but now more often applied to the more awesome energies of the earth: the forces of volcano's, the whirling wind, the hunger of the ocean." [Page 62 'The Western Way' . Vol.1].

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

Practical {reality?} example of such - if only for this reader - in relation to all of the above mentioned...A quote by Steve Backshall within the recent {13/3/16} program 'Extreme Mountain Challenge' . After the main leading climber falls 50 feet - S.B. says something along the lines of: 'That must have been quite an experience' to which the reply was: 'Yes; it felt like an organism'. To which the answer {in jest} was - 'Then you must be doing one of those two things wrong!'

Question {in jest or otherwise}. Which one?

As is: "Its me and you, and you and me. Don't ever betray me - if you do - i'll cut off your pretty little cock, and wear it round me neck." {Ygritte/Jon Snow. Game of Thrones}.

Something hinted at:"The constellation Felis the Cat - a word which Latin lexicographers now write Faelis, was formed by La Lande {1805}....Its inventor said of it: 'I am very fond of cats. I will let this figure scratch on the chart. The starry sky has worried me quite enough in my life {the study of it?} - so that now I can have my joke with it.'..." [Page 221 'Star Names and Their Meaning'].

Alternative viewpoint?..."Yes, diet is important in the Satyagraha movement - as everywhere else," he said with a chuckle. "Because i advocate complete continence for satyagrahis, i am always trying to find out the best diet for the celibate. One must conquer the palate before he can control the procreative instinct. Semi-starvation or unbalanced diets are not the answer. After overcoming the inward greed for food, a satyagrahi must continue to follow a rational vegetarian diet with all necessary vitamins, minerals, calories, and so forth. By inward and outward wisdom in regard to eating, the satyagrahi's sexual fluid is easily turned into vital energy for the whole body {and/or mind. This readers input]." [Quote by Gandhi from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi].

As is..."Promethus, who brought 'fire' to mankind, was a Titan whose name means foresight. So be prepared for the consequences of your actions. You will need somewhere to place the burned out match. Let a discrete and adequate receptacle be provided. Simply to cast it aside is an expression of dis-order. A working for the lords of mis-rule {'Saturn'?} the evidence of whose presence is all about you in the world. It is perhaps only the lack of intention {i.e.,unconscious act} that prevents their engulfing the world in a sea of rubbish, of forgotten litter discarded by childish and immature spirits." [Extract from the book by G. Knight. Most of the emphasis, this readers]. Try ''Taboo'' {in relation to a 'sacred act' }. Then try ''rubbish'' - for a more practical read, i.e., a 'location' of something - a possible one.

The above a good example of the 'ritual stuff'. In the above example- in relation to that ''spirit/fire,'' i.e., as an expression of something; an expression that can be thought {expected?} about, in ones daily routine. All relevant to those words {principles?} in relation to that acclaimed framework. Micro within the Macro? The main point however is - that the understanding of such material {literature?} gives the reader {that objective; studious one} - an INSIGHT into the subject as a WHOLE. And like ANY other subject - the more ones learns {keys?symbols?archetypes?} the more one understands the parts within the whole - regardless of what subdivision - within the subject as a whole {i.e.,esotericism} - those universal keys are got.

'To prick ones conscience'.

A {working?} example..."We had two more specific ceremonies to perform before returning to Uxmal and Merida. But first, there were two processes that needed to happen in order for us to prepare ourselves...These two ''processes'' were to be very much like ceremonies, but were, in fact, probably more akin to modern day therapy. Each member of this group came to the Yucatan with internal emotional disturbances associated with their sexual energies. This is true with almost every person alive. In a nutshell, the sexual chakra, the heart chakra, and the pineal chakra, in the 'center' of the head, all function together as one when they are aligned. Lack of alignment causes emotional disturbances, and emotional disturbances causes lack of alignment. These disturbances would have to be balanced in our group before the last two ceremonies could be completed or we would not be able to finish our work." ['Serpent of Light Beyond 2012'].

Same principle - but easier on the brain {mind?}: "Sun, Moon and stars {as three examples} were, to the leaders and teachers of the ancient peoples, not merely physical, but 'pictures' of the hidden and the divine. Misunderstanding of the myths would cease once it were universally recognised that, outside the Mystery Temples {schools?}, only the language and imagery of ordinary life could be used to describe the realities of spiritual experience obtained in the 'holy of holies'." ['The Flaming Door' / C. Merry. Parenthesis, this readers].

on awakening

One second AFTER awakening? Question. Why does she look disappointed? Notice also the tail end of each. In both 'snap shots.' [Represented by the word ''second,'' and the symbolic intention of the firearm]. See it? Notice also the two front legs of the ''elephant.'' Through the ''heads'' of the pictures two main characters. Left in relation to ''female'' aspect. Also Pomegranate above water line, female aspect below it. West in relation to East. Anything? OR South - North perspective? Don't forget those first impressions, i.e.,first parts a joke. Finally try ''intention'' to understand its MAIN AIM. IF ONLY IN DEFINING SUBJECT MATERIAL.

Every subject can represent that framework. Hence the reason to its multiple interpretations by different authors explaining the same thing in their own way. Including the subject of sex. That subject that is no more represented than with two individuals; in the main; male and female. [represented / symbolic of 'shadow' ; 'anima' ]. An interest in each other, that can develop over time, into a deeper interest, and that deeper intention, that is represented with the sex act. That final act of a union of two 'opposing' souls, that through an understanding, become 'united', ['divine couple' link]. What better subject to represent those key words. Words like 'heart'[love] / 'intention' / male / female aspects, to name but a few. The word phallic used to represent a 'focus' [and/or 'fulcrum'] by way of a 'fire' that 'bridges' those male/female aspects, ['Sacred marriage'], to find an 'equilibrium,' [all key words, in understanding the 'whole']. As a representation of something, outside of the obvious.

'The Book of Lies' by A. Crowley.

"The pillars of Jakim and Boaz measured the pulse of the cosmos. They were so placed as to mark the furthest points of the suns risings of the equinoxes, and according to the first century Jewish historian Josephus and Clement, the first bishop of Alexandria, they were topped with 'orreries,' mechanical representations of the motions of the planets. Decorative, carved pomegranates are mentioned several times in the biblical account. The robes of the priests were decorated with precious stones representing the 'sun', the 'moon', the 'planets' and the 'constellations' - emerald being the only stone named. The most extraordinary feature of the temple seems to have been a 'sea' - or according to the Quran, a 'fountain' - of 'molten brass.' Again, as with the 'bronze' serpent nailed to a 'pole' by Moses, this image of 'smelting' should alert us to the presence of secret practices dedicated to 'transforming' human physiology." ['Secret History of the World'].

Side note: "An intriguing incident in Ares life that has not yet succumbed to astronomical interpretation is when he was bound 'in cruel bonds, so that he lay thirteen months imprisoned in a vessel of bronze'. The text may be implying that for a period of just over a year Mars could not be seen, because it was below the horizon at night and in the sky during daylight hours." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Continued...."Two independent - minded Masonic researchers, Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas, have worked out this orientation, [i.e.,relative to Solomon's temple,i.e.,S/E or S/W? Answer found in chapter 23], starting with the clue that Hiram came from Phoenicia, where the principle deity was Astarte - or Venus. Of course this ties in too, with the decorative details, already mentioned, the pomegranates which are the 'fruit' of Venus and 'emeralds' which are the precious 'stones' of Venus. According to Clement of Alexandria, the curtain which sectioned off the Holy of Holies had cut into it the shape of a five - pointed star. The five - pointed star has always been a symbol of Venus, because the pattern that Venus traces around the ecliptic in its eight year cycle - five appearances in the morning sky and five in the evening sky - forms a five pointed pattern. It is the only planet to draw a completely regular figure in this way. This figure is seen sometimes as a pentagram, sometimes as a five pointed star, and sometimes, as we shall see when we come to investigate Rosicrucianism, as a five - petalled flower or rose." [Chapter 12, 'The Secret History of the World'].

"...answer found in chapter twenty three." Coincidence or a meaningful one?

N.B. {Analogy?}...'Liber Astarte': 4 = 7; Philosophus grade; Equilibrium link to the House of Venus???

Analogy with same principle in mind: "...above the rose, sealing the vessel, which is a ''soul with no leak at the seams,'' is a crown. The crown - which is a triple crown - signifies Kether, the top of the tree. It bears a single pearl in its apex; 'the pearl of great price'...." [Extract from the book 'The Magister' ].

Question. Can you put together all that 'information', offered in the form of 'symbols' that represent the understanding of certain 'aspects' within a subject? In this case, the understanding of that ''orientation'' that once understood gives clues as to a start and end point. Representational of. The answer also explains as to why it had to be chosen as someones final resting place - as to WHY that specific location {'start point'} - was chosen.

'Asherah [or Astarte or Ashtoreth]: History's Vanquished Goddess' [Gods Wife: the Goddess Asherah, Wife of Yahweh]. By Darlene Kosnik. Question. ''Youngest'' aspect, as mentioned in part one?

"Sophia was also an important mythical figure for Jewish gnostics, such as Philo. Although later rejected by Jewish Literalists, there had always been a Jewish Goddess tradition. At one time Israelites had worshiped the Goddess Asherah as Jehovahs consort. In the 5th century {BC} she was known as Anat Jahu." [From the book by T. Freke and P. Gandy].

"...and Astarte and Ashtoreth are the Phoenician and Hebrew forms of the Babylonian goddess Ishtar. Mr Hislop remarks that it is generally admitted that the last syllable, ''tart'' of the Phoenician ''Ashtart'' is derived from the Hebrew 'tr',- ''to go round, surround or encompass''; the masculine 'tor' being used for a border or row of jewels around the head. Hence as ''Asha'' is woman, Ashtart and Ashtoreth would mean ''the woman who encompasses,'' alluding to her surrounding cities with walls and towers. This is further confirmed by the fact that Ashtarte, like Diana and Rhea, is depicted as standing on a lion, with a turreted crown, while Diana was called ''Tauropolos'', from 'tor', a tower..." ['The Worship of the Dead or the Origin of Pagan Idolatry and its Bearing Upon the Early History of Egypt and Babylonia' / J. Garnier]. Among others try ''tower''.

Side note: Any link to: "The Hebrew 'Ash' or Ayish in the Book of Job is supposed to refer to the Square in this constellation as a Bier, not a Bear....In the revision of 1885 the patriarch talks to us of ''the bear with her train'' - these latter being represented by the three tail stars....Or by another tradition - the nightly wanderer - a mother of the stars seeking her lost children - those that are no longer visible....Of which the impossible tail - to the North American Indians - was to them either three hunters or a hunter with his two dogs....The Hebrew Ash or Ayish is reproduced by, or was derived from, the Arabic Banat Na'ash al Kubra, the Daughters of the Great Bier, i.e., the Mourners....The Arabic Christians termed it Na'ash Laazar, the Bier of Lazarus, with Mary, Martha and the Maid." [Page 422-451 'Star Names and Their Meaning' under Ursa Major].

Try Ashtoreth.

And/or: ''no longer visible'' in relation to 'a line of sight' by way of a ''train'' of thoughts?
