nhyThat horizontal/vertical link to the true symbolism of the Sphinx and pyramids, [explained elsewhere].

"Horizon, is nothing but the limit of our sight." [Quote from the book 'Beyond the Horizon' by R. Parks]. Link to 'boundary' lines [keys].

"We shall show them our signs upon the horizons and in themselves, until it is clear to them that this is the truth." [Quran 41:53].

Egyptian equivalent...Horus in/of the horizon. Enlarged elsewhere.

Refresher and/or analogy: All this suggests that humanity originally possessed something which was a part of itself, but 'in heaven', and only to be found there; and that later 'it came down' in order to go through - in man - a tremendous 'evolution' on earth....There is this spirit in us which is IN the world but not OF the world. It is present in every human being...." [Page 12 'Spiritual Knowledge: The Reality and its Shadow' / Eleanor Merry].

Horus IN/OF the Horizon?

Recall ''Life takes refuge in a sacred space'' in Part 1.

"To broaden ones outlook". Benefits of. Purpose of.

Blemmyes.

"The idea that we are not awake but live in a partial dream state from which we can awaken opens onto radically new horizons..." ['The Wisdom of the 4th Way']. Continued elsewhere.

An objective one.

"When, through contact with his 'higher' self [link to ''teacher'' of Dead Sea Scroll fame. Enlarged elsewhere] - he participates in the knowledge of the objective, and when through the climbing of the mountain of vision his perspective changes and his horizon enlarges..." Explained within.

As it does in ANY SUBJECT. Yes or no?

'On Having No Head: Zen and the Rediscovery of the Obvious' / D. E. Harding.

''Vision'' in relation to: "bazon {'vision'} is derived from baza ''to see''..." [Page 238 'Guide for the Perplexed' / M. Maimonides]. Try ''vision'' Part 3.

And/or: "Vision is the heart of seeing things invisible." [The Sacred Order of the 'Blinded Wanderer']. 'Planets'?

REFRESHER: "....the words 'idea', 'wisdom' and 'vision' ALL originate from the common Indo-European root which means ''to see''. An idea is an insight, an inner flash of illumination that can result in 'wisdom'." [From the book 'Alexandria' / Vol 3 ].

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

One 'peak' or two? Waxing or Waning?

As seen from a different perspective: "The manifestation of Atum-Ra between the twin peaks of the mountain of the horizon." [Picture of same, page 256 'Temple of the Cosmos'].

'Signs of the Gods' by Erich V. Daniken. Understand this subject to define what those 'signs' truly mean.

''Horizon of the Aten''?

''Manifestation'' of something relative to the ''Seat of First Occasion'' in relation to ''He who Walked with God''. A top/middle/end. Head in relation to feet. North in relation to South. Or would that be vice-versa?

'By endurance we conquer'. Ernest Shackleton. Try 'Struggle''.

Refresher: ''Where good deeds are ships on which to ride the waves."

'The highs don't last forever, but then neither do the lows'.

Side note: "The Pictish 'crown' descended in the 'female' line. Here the oculus {'eye'} survives strongly on the bows of boats." [Page 126 of the book by T. Lethbridge].

Exercise: The bow of the boat facing South - ''indicates the Land of Punt'' - as seen within Hatshepsut's Mortuary monument in Upper Egypt. On its Southern Wall. A 'turtle' in the S/E corner together with a 'raised' Hut {'tent' link?} ladders exposed. Brackish water mentioned.   ['Unexplained and Unexplored: Egypt's Land of the Gods' / Ser. 1. Episode 7].

The ''Northern Monastery'' at the 'head' of the Valley of the Kings.

'Monastery' link to silence and/or male aspect. Therefore 'animus' link? {i.e., from a female perspective}.

'Head of the Corner'? OR would that be ''turning a corner''  - If only in the ''matriarchal'' sense of the word?

Spirit to soul? S/W - S/E?

Bridge over troubled waters?

Analogy: The first hints of Bronze Age activity on the site (which lies on the south-east edge of the Flag Fen Basin) had emerged in the 1970s, when quarrying brought fragments of metalwork and pottery to the surface; further clues came in 1999, when local archaeologist Martin Redding spotted a series of stumps sticking out of a flooded quarry pit. Evaluations by Cambridge Archaeological Unit (CAU) followed in 2004 and 2006, but with no immediate threat to the underlying remains they were left largely undisturbed, albeit with careful monitoring in place. The results of the monitoring and their interpretation were equivocal, and therefore an agreement was reached between Forterra and Historic England to excavate the potentially at-risk remains.

horizonAnalogy {that very first one?}: "Oceanus is proposed as the god who rules the river of the same name that was said to encircle {'girdle'?} the earth and into which the Sun set each night. Experience of those who has 'sailed' the wide seas beyond the horizon {'seat of first occasion'?} - visible from land, and had never come across such a 'river', must raise doubts about the Greeks taking this as a literal concept. If, however, Oceanus is designated as god of the horizon, then another part of Homer's universe falls into place. In hot climates, the line where the skies meet the earth can be disturbed by dust and atmospheric turbulence and may appear to be a shimmering band, perhaps even like sunlight reflected {'moon'?} from a river." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Sun / moon - in the abstract sense of the word - as a means...?

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

dawnA working example: "Immediately, everything fell into place, We instantly perceived other, less obvious, connections between the two men. 'So you suggest that Alkindi's view of alchemy, though expressed in very different terms, resurfaced in the writings of Boyle?' We were restating the obvious, for already we had been enlightened by this remarkable man. Everything had been made clear to the consciousness soul, reflected from the surface of that eternal river..." ['The Zelator'].

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

That number three represented in the tri-root of the Arabic language/alphabet. The reason why each word in Arabic has many subtle nuances to it...as anyone with a basic understanding of linguistics knows. Which is especially important in helping to understand any subject, including this one.

'The Great Triad' by Rene Guenon.

No better author who accomplishes that than A. Schimmel. Especially her book...‘Deciphering the signs of god’. Just change the word ‘signs’ to ‘keys’ {and/or vice versa} and you should understand at whats being hinted at. It also indicates the Quran/s true purpose in relation to those ’signs’ and their benefit to the reader...,by way of ‘reason and understanding’.[keys], both words that are constantly used throughout.

'Signs of the unseen' by J. Rumi

As is the word 'inspiration' [key], by Mr J. Michell within his book 'The New View over Atlantis'. Enticing the reader to understand that same framework, ['lower' half] 'by way' of his own knowledge of 'Landscape' symbolism, just as Gurdjieff and Plato do within their own chosen subjects, [explained elsewhere]. 'Inspiration' in relation to reason and understanding.

''You are in my heart...There is no other who knows you...Only your 'Son' whom you have taught your ways and might...When you have dawned they live...When you set they die...All 'eyes' are on your beauty until you set..." ['Great Hymn to Aten']. All as a means...?

"And so we have by our command sent inspiration to you: you did not know what revelation was or what faith was; but we have made the Quran a light with which we guide such of our servants as we will; and truly you are guiding to the straight way, the way of god, to whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth; witness how all affairs incline towards 'god'." [42:52-53].

'The {dawn}ing of a new day' - relative to an understanding.

A working example {and/or work in progress}: ''My soul has thirsted for the living god; when shall i come and appear before the face of god?'....Mary Magdalene comes face to face with Jesus. It is above all a transforming encounter....She stands in a garden, reminiscent of the Garden of Eden, yet she is here at the foot of Mount Arbel, in her home town of Magdala.'' [Pages 91/136 'Mary Magdalene: Insights from Ancient Magdala' / J. Ristine].

Spirit and soul. Which and why?

Flat topped? Analogy?

Flat topped crown - special to Amarna - in the 'middle' of Egypt. Also associated with ''sunshade'' {i.e., shadow aspect} - BEGINNING from a southern perspective. Pages 30-38 'Nefertiti' / A. Dodson.

Something to ponder on {landscape equivalent?}: And/or as seen from a different perspective: "It is the mystery of 'tears' - and of inspiration - that the 14th Arcanum of the Tarot aims at in particular. It is the spiritual exercise dedicated to inspiration. Inspiration... is not something that not simply happens, as in the case of vision...Rather, it is the co-activity, the concerted activity of the higher Self and the lower self. It is essentially the flow emanating from two 'vases' at once...It represents the knowledge of how to be active and passive at the same time. Active, in what concerns the question or demand. And passive in what concerns the answer or solution...It is a matter of simultaneous activity and passivity...It is inspiration in common which underlies the mental and symbolic language common to Hermeticists - the language of analogy, the marriage of opposites...The ardent belief that all is knowable and revealable..." ['Letter 14' from the book 'Meditations on the Tarot'].

''Two vases''? Where have you seen it?

''Alabaster''?

And/or: ''For all human beings, in addition to what we may call ordinary, everyday self, also bear within themselves a higher self or higher human being. This 'higher' human being remains concealed until it is awakened - WITHIN ourselves. Until then, the higher faculties are latent - remain hidden.''

Amun? {i.e., ''hidden''} and or Jesus/Mary Magdalene? {i.e., higher/lower}.

"The morning is wiser than the evening.'' Proverb quote of the 'Even' people. Reindeer herders. Alexei Solodikov. {Russia with Simon Reeves. BBC1. Episode 1}.

Shepherds?

And/or 'Mercury' as a means...? Enlarged elsewhere.

Side note: ''Worn in the American Artic and traditionally made from seal or reindeer skin, a mukluk is a type of boot.'' ['Tipping Point'].

A different perspective: ''It is indeed of the sulphur of metals that the masters speak when they describe the manner of extracting and preparing this first agent....It is also this sulphur joined to mercury which contributes to the generation of our 'egg' by giving it its vegetative faculty. This real 'father' of the stone is therefore independent from it since the 'stone' comes from it...." [Page 396 'The Dwelling of the Philosophers' / Fulcanelli].

That 'lower half' [i.e., represented as a 'potential' still 'dormant'; still an ''unknown'' quantity; therefore represented more often than not as 'shadow' and/or 'animal' / basic instincts aspect], as implied by the Celts with Cernunnos, or Cronos of Greek fame, [explained elsewhere].

The Greek 'Pan' another representation of the lower within the higher, but now in relation to Zeus, i.e.,'shadow' part of same ['lower',i.e.,now the start point of a 'learning process' within the 'higher' divisions]. Hence the reason why he lives in a 'shallow cave'.... 'A wild and unkempt place'. ['Higher' part of 'Zeus' = Apollo]. All within a 'development' of same, i.e.,recall what 'Zeus' represents. Pan / Apollo, represent; amongst others; both negative/positive within same. Finally, what does 'Zeus' truly represent.

'The Encounter'.

A {deeper?} head scratch, in respect to a further 'development'..."Long ago it was said at the time of the crucifixion, a strange voice was heard, calling out across the seas: 'Great Pan is dead', and this was thought to mean that all the old gods and all their ways had been killed because the One True god had come. This is not quite accurate; though there is truth in it. Pan was not dead, but something connected with 'death' did come to earth. It changed." [Extract from the book by G. Knight]. Try ''grace''. Its intent and {purpose?}.

north-wind

When {Banksy?} or the north wind blows? Djedefre?

The Western way describes the same - in relation to ''pan'' - or more importantly, what it represents / implies i.e., with the same intent; with the 'sisters at the back of the North wind', i.e., from an 'unconscious', 'unknown' [but now with 'anima' in mind] - start point, i.e.,recall what the 'feminine' aspect; in some form or other, is a representation of. Therefore by the same logic ''pan'' in one form or another has to represent more 'shadow' than 'anima'. If only from the 'male' perspective? ['Power within the Land'. Mentioned within].

''Denial of an aspect of wholeness is the key ingredient in the formation of the shadow." ['Mysteries of the Dark Moon' / Demetra George].

Patriarch / Matriarch?

Side note: Understanding all the above - gives clues to understanding the following: "The god Pan is sometimes connected with Saturn, being a 'goatly' figure. The word 'panic' comes from Pan as does the prefix 'pan'. For example a pan-African conference is a conference in which all the counties of Africa are represented. So 'pan-' something, is a collection of things, a community of things celebrating their difference, and in that sense their sameness and unity as well. Pantheism is a celebration of the invisible {unmanifested?} god present in the multiplicity of everything in nature, and in the world of the senses." ['Saturn, Chiron and the Centaurs'].

Aspects of 'nature' used to 'manifest' something - if only in defining subject material.

A work in progress: ''At the foothills of Mount Hermon - within a cliff face - {Banias} there is a cave with a spring within it. Pan was worshipped there. Pan will always be found more often than not in a cave or a NATURAL surrounding. A lot of storms pass through this way with thunder and lightening - from which the word ''panic'' comes from...'' [Kathleen Nichols / Magdala Project / Israel].

Other aspects associated with Pan the word ''nymph'' {i.e., female aspect} + Banias = ''the way of the sea'' from which the spring creates the river Banias which became one of the tributaries of the Jordan river. ALL as a means...?

As one example: "If truth were the same for everyone, then things would indeed be simple. But it is not. Truth is a concept, and so varies with the individual as situations and backgrounds vary....Do not confuse truth with Law. A group of men may make a law, and by so deciding it becomes truth within his tribe - but man-made truth only. Another group may recognise a law of nature which is universal to all creation - and this is truth - but truth not made by man. And then of course there are those grey area's of spiritual morality which are neither black nor white {'mottled'?}, but remind us that there no absolutes in creation. Truth which is derived from the patterns of nature, is the closest we can come to Absolute Truth. This is why the Druids founded 'colleges', where all learning and philosophy is patterned after natural phenomenon: the cycles of seasons, the science of rainbows and light, the ways of beasts {'cattle'?} or stars...'Natural philosophy' we call it. These teachings are not from the 'hand' of men - but from the Hand of 'He who dwells in The Beyond {that ''bit''?}. And so certain learnings and truths are clearly identified beyond others..." [Page 218 of the book by Douglas Monroe]. Try ''egg'' [5:6].

Try ''fingers''.

REFRESHER: ''The ancient sages pictured truth as a delicate thing, egg born, and in perpetual need of protection....." Try ''egg' throughout.

'How to Connect With Nature' / Tristan Gooley.

Try ''Mona''. All as a means...?

Back of the head ? Or 'heart' {Antares?} of the 'dragon? Spirit/soul? ''Seat of First Occasion''?

Sutton Hoo purse clasp: Wolfs / eagles and ducks: "The plaques include twinned images of a bird-of-prey swooping on a duck-like bird (above), and a man standing heroically between two beasts. These images must have had deep significance for the Anglo-Saxons, but it is impossible for us to interpret them. The fierce creatures are perhaps a powerful evocation of strength and courage, qualities that a successful leader of men must possess. Strikingly similar images of a man between beasts are known from Scandinavia....The lid was made to cover a leather pouch containing gold coins. It hung by three hinged straps from the waist belt, and was fastened by a gold buckle. The lid had totally decayed but was probably made of whalebone—a precious material in early Anglo-Saxon England. Seven gold, garnet cloisonné and millefiori glass plaques were set into it. These are made with a combination of very large garnets and small ones, deliberately used to pick out details of the imagery. This combination could link the purse-lid and the fine shoulder clasps, which were also found in the ship burial, to the workshop of a single master-craftsman."

As seen from a different perspective {top/down?}: "Brown says that the stars in the 'Bow' were the Persian Gau...others were called the Archers Eye. Ptolemy catalogued them as a nebulous double star - among the first to be so designated...With the Chinese it was a Flag Staff...In Arabia it marked the 'back of the head' earmarked the 19th manzil, called the Bright One of that lunar station...The 19th manzil lay in the vacant space from the upper part of the figure towards the horns of the Sea Goat and was known as Al Baldah - The City, District - for this region is comparatively untenanted. It was marked by one scarcely distinguishable star, and was bounded by six others in the form of a Bow, the Arabs Kaus which, however, was not our Bow of Sagittarius. It also was the Necklace {menat?} and the Ostrich Nest; while the space between this and the preceding mansions was designated ''the head of Sagittarius and his two locks i.e., the interstice between the two eyebrows which are not connected to each other....other attributes = ''sole of the left foot'' {'Heel' stone of Stonehenge?} / ''calf of the leg to the heel {Saturn?}'' / yellow or the peculiar green sanguine'' / yoke of the sea {in relation to the vane of the arrow in the archers hand} " [Page 355-360 'Star names and their meaning' under Sagittarius].

What about the ''Toe''?

Put those keys together to take something further, i.e., ''flag/pennant'' etc. Sandels?

19TH NOME? and/or: Iris/Rainbow?

Side note: A rainbow mentioned after lighting up Westminster Hall on the EVE of the 'nineteenth' . {Funeral of Queen Elizabeth II}.

And/or: ''In Arabia the Lunar Mansions {Per-Wer?} were known as the Stars of Entering {'from the back of the head'?}, and the Road Side Inns, although better known as The Mansions, or Resting Places {'stations'?}, of the moon; manzil in the singular, signifying the NOONDAY halt of camel and rider in the desert {'ship of the desert'?}. Readers of Ben Hur will recall this in connection of Balthasdar, the Egyptian, at the meeting of the Magi in their search for Him ''that is born King of the Jews'' after they saw: his star in the east, and are come to worship him {bended 'knee'?}. They are alluded to the 10th sura of the Koran, where, referring to the moon, it says that god hath appointed her stations, that ye may know the number of years, and the computation of time.'' [Pages 8-9 'Star Names and their Lore and Meaning' / R. Allen].

N.B. Unused Bow found in the tomb of Tutankhamun.

Hussein Abdul Rasoul - 'The 'Water-Boy' - whose 'heel' found the first step of 'sixteen' that led to the tomb of the 'golden child'.

''On the morning of November 4th, 1922, a water-boy hit a strange rock with his heel as he tried to make a place to set jars of water. The sand around the rock was cleared revealing that the rock was in fact a step. Everyone was so excited as they knew that most tombs in the valley had stairways cutting into the rock. They began to clear the area of sand and gradually uncovered another step, then another, and another until a flight of steps was cleared.'' [Wiki].

'Train' of thoughts?

'Station of No Station'?

Stretched neck? Real or symbolic?

And/or: ''The Giraffe constellation is a long, faint, and straggling likes its namesake. It stretches from the POLE STAR {'anchor'?} to Perseus, Auriga, and the Lynx - the hind quarters {'plough-share'?} within the Milky Way. It was formed by Bartschius, who published it, in OUTLINE only in 1614, and wrote that it represented to him the Camel that brought Rebecca to Isaac.....The Chinese located seven asterisms within its boundaries....titles used such as State Umbrella, Higher Minister, Higher Guard, Four Supporters of the Throne used.'' [Page 106 'Star Names, Their Lore and Meaning' / R. Allen].

Question. 'Hoeing' {Pre-} 'Ploughing' {Post?}.

'To plough ones furrow'?

The Oxen Way?

Side note: ''In a similar way, snow leopards were once known as ounce. The name might come from Latin: luncea which means lynx. In French the word became lonce which was altered over time to l'once because French speakers thought the “L” meant “the”.

A work in progress: ''The origin of the superstition not to put the umbrella up inside the house {when wet},  tempting bad luck, maybe came from the Egyptians. They were used in Egypt to protect religious leaders and nobility from the sun - thought to ward of spirits that might do them harm - so putting up an umbrella inside was thought to offend the sun god.'' ['Black Cats, New Moons and Ladders: Origins of Superstitions' / Mirthy 2022].

''Sunshade'' to enlarge.

Open aired?

From a different perspective: ''Genesis 'eighteen' tells the story of Abraham and Sarah’s generous hospitality to three visitors who came to them by the oaks of Mamre. Seminomadic life would often bring people from different families and regions into contact with one another, Canaan being part of a natural land bridge between Asia and Africa and, consequently, a popular trade route. In the absence of a formal industry of hospitality, which would only develop later, people living in cities, villages, small towns, and even encampments had a social obligation to welcome strangers.

Let’s take a look at the biblical text itself: The Lord appeared to Abraham near the great trees of Mamre while he was sitting at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day {zenith?}. Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he hurried from the entrance of his tent to meet them and bowed low to the ground.

Five o'clock shadow?

Anima or animus?

He said, “If I have found favor in your eyes, my lord, do not pass your servant by. Let a little water be brought, and then you may all wash your feet and rest under this tree. Let me get you something to eat, so you can be refreshed and then go on your way—now that you have come to your servant.” “Very well,” they answered, “do as you say.” So Abraham hurried into the tent to Sarah. “Quick,” he said, “get three seahs of the finest flour and knead it and bake some bread.” Then he ran to the herd and selected a choice, tender calf and gave it to a servant, who hurried to prepare it. He then brought some curds and milk and the calf that had been prepared, and set these before them. While they ate, he stood near them under a tree. “Where is your wife Sarah?” they asked him. “There, in the tent,” he said. Then one of them said, “I will surely return to you about this time next year, and Sarah your wife will have a son.”

'Dappled'.

"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].         Roasted / Boiled.

Since Abraham addresses these three strangers in the singular (“My Lord”), and the text itself says “the Lord appeared to Abraham,” Christian tradition has read this passage as being a revelation of the mystery of the Holy Trinity. In fact, the famous Trinity Icon written by Andrei Rublev in the 15th century (surely the most famous of all Russian icons) reproduces this scene from Genesis, even including Abraham’s house in the back, an oak tree, and a dish containing the head of the calf.''

Aries?

''Zero degree Aries''?

Side note: "An Egyptian astronomical calendar of the 15th century before Christ, associates it with Antares in the immense sky figure Menat - and Lockyer claims it is one of the objects of worship in Nile temples, as it was in the temple of Venus in Italy...In India it was known as a Pearl, Gem or Coral Bead...known also as 'Outcast' {foreign?}, possibly because of its remote northern situation far outside the zodiac, whence, from its brilliancy, it was arbitrarily taken to complete the series of Hindu asterisms...It is interesting to know, that the first photo of a comet was of Donati's, near this star {28th Sep. 1858}. Ptolemy specified its colour as ''golden red'' others of variable tinge...Generally it has ''figured immemorially in the short list of visibly fiery objects'' {15?}. Its rich colour, in contrast with the white of Spica, the deeper red of Antares, and the sapphire of Wega, is very noticeable when all can be taken in together {'line of sight'?}, at almost a single glance, on a summer evening {'zenith'?}. [ Information on 'Arcturus' / {Bootes} 'Star Names and Their Meaning' And/or page 162/121].

Red/Orange?

Red King?

''Arcturus is Greek meaning 'guardian or keeper of the bear'. The Greeks saw this star as the guardian of Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, which are both nearby the constellation Boötes, where Arcturus is located.''

And/or: ''The fact that it is possible to construct, in adequate fashion, a person's character from the data of his nativity, shows the relative validity of astrology. But the birth never depends on the actual astronomical constellations, but upon an arbitrary, purely conceptual time-system -  because by reason of the precession of the equinoxes, the SPRING POINT {'anchor'?} has long ago passed on beyond zero degree Aries.'' [Page 143 'The Secret of the Golden Flower' / R. Wilhelm + C. G. Jung].

Side note: Coral used for the ''whites of the eyes'' in the statues of Easter Island. Question. INNER/OUTER OR BOTH?

'Pole'? Found in Djibouti within the 'Horn' of Africa. Question. Where would the complementary 'pole' be represented? ''Twin pillars''?

And/or: "The northern region is adorned with these stars, as a beautiful woman is adorned with a collar of pearls strung together, and a necklace of white lotus flowers, a handsomely arranged one. Thus adorned, they are like maidens who dance and revolve {'spiral'?} round the pole - as the pole orders them {fate or karma?}." And/or "Professor Whitney tells us: 'That to these stars the ancient astronomers of India, and many others...have attributed an independent motion about the pole of the heavens, at the rate of eight minutes yearly, or of a complete revolution in 2700 years ." ['Star Names and Their Meaning' under Ursa Major].

Try ''collar'' / ''27'' / ''eight'' etc. as a means...?

Question. Mr Allen {author of above book} - a reader {initiate?} of subject material?

Define {'see'} the above to get an idea {''hang on''?} - the following: The Cerrigydrudion Crown. A Celtic piece of ancient artwork. Bronze {'red'?} and leather {'cow'?] headpiece. ''Possibly signifies 'warrior' headgear - with palm leaf and lotus designs - neither of which are common to these islands {UK}.'' ['Inside Museums: St. Fagan/Cardiff. Sat.TV].

A working example: Recall Odysseus journey back to his homeland.

'Spirit/Soul' - as a means....?

''Pleiades''?

Continued: ''Or the Hindu equivalent {i.e., landscape symbolism} within the Mahabharata epic, the mountain of which..."is said to be unapproachable by the sinful. It was rumored to lie in a remote and inaccessible region at the back {'unmanifest' link} of the Himalayas." [Chapter 13, 'The Sacred History' by J. Black]. The author using his knowledge of mythology; and esoteric knowledge of 'numbers'; [to name but a few], in the same vein as Gurdjieff and Plato do, with their own 'tools' of intent.

UNapproachable / Approachable - Represented with a negative/positive - ALL as a means...?

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

A representation of something - waxing or waning? Found near Gobekli-tepe. Question. Playtime addicts?

Phases of the moon?

As is - but from a different perspective, i.e., a reflection of something {top/down?}: "The relationship of the moon to the sun proceeds accordingly to a wave pattern of increase and decrease in light, or separation from and return to the sun. The cycle begins at the new moon, when the moon is lost in the brilliancy of the sun...The cyclic relationship of the moon to the sun produces the lunation cycle; and every moment of the month and the day can be characterized significantly by its position within this lunation cycle...The solar impulse must be made workable - this is the first step. It must in due time reveal the purpose back of it to the conscious - which then can transform the instinctual and blind impulsion into a conscious, meaningful, and creative type of human activity - this is the second step. The first step refers to the waxing half of the lunation, the second to the waning period...." [Page 41 'The Lunation Cycle' / Dane Rudhyar].

 

Flat 'pedestal' = 'thirteen' feet? Memnon to enlarge.

A {working?} example: "The Theme, briefly, is the antique story which falls into thirteen chapters and an epilogue, of the birth, life, death and resurrection of the god of the Waxing year; the central chapters concerns the gods losing battle with the god of the Waning year for the love of the capricious and all powerful Threefold goddess.....

 

'flat'?

.....The poet identifies himself with the god of the Waxing year and his Muse with the goddess; the rival is his blood brother, his other self, his weird {'shadow' aspect?}." [Page 24 'The White Goddess'/ R. Graves].

Side note: On the brow of the headbust of Cleopatra can be seen 3 snakes. ['Treasures of Egypt: Cleopatra. Egypt's Last Pharaoh' / 26.12.21].

''By the sweat of ones brow''?

Try ''Battle of the Trees'' to take it further. The parts within the whole. To ''see'' that piece of work in its larger context.

A working example: "You know the words, so say it with me. “Double, double, toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble.” This is the first line of what is arguably the most famous scene in Shakespeare’s Macbeth, wherein the three weird sisters add a host of ghastly ingredients to their cauldron for conjuring. But it turns out many of those gross ingredients might not be so icky.

Any 'frogs'?

“Eyes of newt” and “baboon’s blood” are just a few of the substances the three witches use in their brew, and every single one of the ingredients sound pretty creepy. But in reality, things like “eye of newt” or “wool of dog” weren’t meant literally: they were folk names for common herbs and many of them are readily available to you for your own witchy pursuits....In herbal lore, which was a huge deal in Shakespeare’s day, and continues to be a pursuit for many in the modern world, popular herbs with magical or medical properties weren’t known by a single name. A plant like buttercup, which has many medical properties (and can also be poisonous) would also be known as blisterweed or bachelor’s buttons or … toe of frog." ['The Mary Sue' / internet].

''Double'' = 'duality' link. Boil / Roast to enlarge.

Side note: {i.e., as seen from a different perspective}: "WATER is another symbol for subconsciousness. Water was the 'First Mirror', and because mirroring is duplication, or reflection, it is akin to REMEMBERING, in which an original experience is duplicated or reflected. Memory, indeed, is the root of subconscious activity, hence water is a correct symbol of the same. Water is related to Salt, because of the saltiness of seawater. The alchemical symbol for water is a blue, INVERTED, equilateral triangle."

Muses? {'nine' in total?}.

''The huge earth barrow survives to a maximum height of 10.5 feet (3.2 metres) and tapers out from the narrower western end to a maximum width of 82 feet (25 metres) towards the eastern entrance.

At just over 328 feet (100 metres), the barrow is second only to the nearby East Kennet Barrow in length. Although it is now covered with turf it would originally have had bare chalk sides and would have stood out against the landscape. It consists of a core of sarsen stones capped with chalk rubble from the surrounding quarry ditches.

At the eastern end of the mound is an impressive structure consisting of five chambers opening off to a central passage. This is fronted by a semicircular forecourt with a façade of huge sarsen stones aligned north–south.

The main passage penetrates about 42 feet (13 metres) into the barrow, with two of the burial chambers on each side of the passageway and one chamber at the end. The side ditches to the north and south of the mound have now been almost buried by ploughing.

Analogy?..."46 is the number of years of the construction of the Temple {John 2:20} and also signifies the body of Christ, who appeared in this world 46x6=276 days after his conception. The numerical value of the Greek transcription of the name of Adam, which is 1+4+1+40, led medieval exegetes to the same conclusion: Fortysix was connected with the human aspect of Christ." ['Mystery of Numbers'].

 

23 link?

He is the king who introduced the royal title Sa-Rê (meaning “Son of Ra”) and the first to connect his cartouche name with the sun god Ra.

Fortysix is an auspicious number. In esoteric Freemasonry, a 33rd-degree master has the opportunity to advance further by taking 13 extra grades, or degrees. Therefore, a 46th-degree initiate is supposedly a master of space and time, a bodhisattva-like enlightened adept. In the King James Version of the Bible there is the curious incident of Psalm 46. When one counts 46 words down from the first word in Psalm 46, one comes to the word shake. If one counts 46 words from the bottom of Psalm 46, one comes to the word speare. This would indicate that the author, or authors, of the works of William Shakespeare, called by Victor Hugo “a cathedral of words,” are 46th-degree initiates.

Biting ones tongue?

A hint of this can also be gleaned from the fact that 3 x 46 = 138, the number of the phrase Ben Elohim, or “Son of the Gods.” It is interesting to note that Francis Bacon was chosen by King James to head the translation team for the Bible. Other interesting ramifications of the number 46 include the number of the name of Adam, the first man. It is also said that it took 46 years to build King Solomon’s Temple. Each human being has 46 chromosomes. As we said above, 46 equals the name of God, Elhi, an ancient name for the El in the Sky, the High God of Draco. It is also the number of the Levite priests who ministered to that God. If we think of what the Lallemant credence has to tell us about the process of transformation, then 46 represents a level of personal attainment. By adding the extra three images of the Hendaye chapter, the personal connection of Elhi, 46, becomes the transpersonal connection of the Living God, El Chai, 49, depicted on the tympanum of Saint Trophime in Arles, plate 49.

Perugia (/pəˈrə/,[3][4] US also /-iə, pˈ-/,[5] Italian: [peˈruːdʒa] LatinPerusia) is the capital city of Umbria in central Italy, crossed by the River Tiber. The city is located about 164 km (102 mi) north of Rome and 148 km (92 mi) southeast of Florence. It covers a high hilltop and part of the valleys around the area. The history of Perugia goes back to the Etruscan period; Perugia was one of the main Etruscan cities. The city is also known as a university town, with the University of Perugia founded in 1308, the University for Foreigners, and some smaller colleges such as the Academy of Fine Arts "Pietro Vannucci" (ItalianAccademia di Belle Arti "Pietro Vannucci") public athenaeum founded in 1573, the Perugia University Institute of Linguistic Mediation for translators and interpreters, the Music Conservatory of Perugia, founded in 1788, and other institutes. Perugia is also a well-known cultural and artistic centre of Italy. The city hosts multiple annual festivals and events, e.g., former Eurochocolate Festival (October), now in Bastia Umbra, the Umbria Jazz Festival (July), and the International Journalism Festival (in April), and is associated with multiple notable people in the arts.

Painter Pietro Vannucci, nicknamed Perugino, was a native of Città della Pieve, near Perugia. He decorated the local Sala del Cambio with a series of frescoes; eight of his pictures can also be seen in the National Gallery of Umbria.[6] Perugino was the teacher of Raphael,[7] the great Renaissance artist who produced five paintings in Perugia (today no longer in the city)[8] and one fresco.[9] Another painter, Pinturicchio, lived in Perugia. Galeazzo Alessi is the most famous architect from Perugia. The city's symbol is the griffin, which can be seen in the form of plaques and statues on buildings around the city. It is also the symbol of the local football club A.C. Perugia, who have previously played in the Serie A.

In 216 and 205 BC, it assisted Rome in the Second Punic War, but afterwards it is not mentioned until 41–40 BC, when Lucius Antonius took refuge there, and was defeated by Octavian after a long siege, and its senators sent to their deaths. A number of lead bullets used by slingers have been found in and around the city.[15] The city was burnt, we are told, with the exception of the temples of Vulcan and Juno

The griffingriffon, or gryphon (Ancient GreekγρύψromanizedgrýpsClassical Latingrȳps or grȳpus;[1] Late and Medieval Latin:[2] gryphesgrypho etc.; Old Frenchgriffon) is a legendary creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion, and the head and wings of an eagle with its talons on the front legs....The derivation of this word remains uncertain. It could be related to the Greek word γρυπός (grypos), meaning 'curved', or 'hooked'. Greek γρύφ (gryph) from γρύφ 'hook-nosed' is suggested.[5]

It could also have been an Anatolian loan word derived from a Semitic language; compare the Hebrew word for cherub.

Umbria (/ˈʌmbriə/ UM-bree-ə, Italian: [ˈumbrja]) is a region of central Italy. It includes Lake Trasimeno and Marmore Falls, and is crossed by the Tiber. It is the only landlocked region on the Apennine Peninsula. The regional capital is Perugia.

One of the most important festivals in Umbria is "the festival of the Ceri (Candles)", also known as Saint Ubaldo Day in Gubbio. The race has been held every year since 1160, on the 15th day of May. The festival is focused around a race consisting of three teams of cerioli, carrying large symbolic "candles" topped by saints, including St. Ubald (the patron saint of Gubbio), S. Giorgio (St. George), and S. Antonio (Anthony the Great), and run through throngs of cheering supporters. The cerioli are clad in the distinctive colors of yellow, blue or black, according to the saint they support, with white trousers and red belts and neckbands. They travel up much of the mountain from the main square in front of the Palazzo dei Consoli to the basilica of St. Ubaldo, each team carrying a statue of their saint mounted on a wooden octagonal prism, similar to an hour-glass shape 4 metres tall and weighing about 280 kg (617 lb).

The race has strong devotional, civic, and historical overtones and is one of the best-known folklore manifestations in Italy, and therefore the Ceri were chosen as the heraldic emblem on the coat of arms of Umbria as a modern administrative region.[citation needed]

Umbria is not only known for its historical recollections such as the festival of the Ceri, Calendimaggio in Assisi and the giostra della Quintana in Foligno, but also for one of the biggest jazz music festivals called Umbria JazzUmbria Jazz was born as a festival in 1973 and since 2003 has been held in the Umbrian capital "Perugia" in July; it has become the fixed appointment of all jazz and good music lovers. Another important festival is the Festival dei Due Mondi (Festival of the Two Worlds), an annual summer music and opera festival which is held each June to early July in Spoleto.[citation needed]

Side note: ''I was intrigued by Tartessos. Its first mentioned in ancient accounts from Greece and the Near East, and it sounds almost mythical: a rich  civilisation near the western edge of the known world, ruled over by an incredibly old king {i.e., '120' years}, where the rivers ran rich with tin and silver, and dangerous weasels or ferrets roamed the countryside. These Tartessian weasels clearly made an impression on the classical writers, being mentioned several times. Aelian, writing sometime around the 3rd century BC, records the death of Aristides of Locris from the lethal bite of the Tartessian ferret. On his deathbed he supposedly bemoaned the fact that it was a lowly beast that had fatally wounded him rather than a more formidable one such as a lion or leopard....The wealth of  Tartessos was legendary, and flowed from its metal resources....Ephorus, in the 4th century wrote: a famous city called Tartessos, carried much tin by river as well as gold and copper from the Celtic lands."

A WORK IN PROGRESS: The First Matter of the Alchemists is a synthesis or Quintessence of the four elements or qualities of dryness and moisture, heat and cold. Nothing can be done to perfect the Stone until this interior subtle or design body is first known and then subjected to a decomposing process so that its crystallization and inflexibility is brought to naught. The colours to be passed through refer to the fact that in all occult systems a different colour is attributed to each specific item of the magical alphabet. Usually for the elements we have black, russet, or dark green for earth, blue for water, yellow for air, red for fire. But in the alchemical working another, possibly a simpler, attribution is employed. The sequence runs - first black to represent the decomposition or putrefaction of the Stone as first it is found. Then white - its first purified and refined state. This is followed by greenness which expresses immaturity and the possibility of complete spiritual growth, as witnessed by the colour displayed by Nature in Spring; the colour of expectancy and hope. Red succeeds this, red for maturity, full growth, and ripeness; whilst citrine or yellow, the colour of gold and of value and worth, is the final and desired resultant.

The first verse of the seventh section would assuredly give some degree of authority and confirmation to their efforts. Yet the key is there. The terms need but simple translation.

Side note: "The history of Israel is the history of a "chosen people", whose mission it was to prepare an event of human significance. AFTER that event took place, however - that is, after the Mystery of Golgotha - there seems to be no further reason for the existence of a chosen people. We might think that, since the Mystery of Golgotha, the whole of humanity had become such a people. This IDEA, however, contradicts the apocalyptic picture of the future, which shows a final choosing of the twelve tribes of Israel, after humanity has gone through all the tests of earthly destiny. "Twelve times twelve thousand" in the Apocalypse represents the last phase of Earths evolution in its transition to the Jupiter stage."

A working example: The Egyptian organized their time to fit their festivals as the Egyptian calendar was divided into 12 months of exactly 30 days and the entire year was split into three seasons, the first season was Akhet the season of flooding, the second was Peret the season of growth and the third was Shemu the season of harvesting plus they added five extra days to celebrate a different deity of each day with their own special festival. The ancient Egyptian festivals would involve a procession of a god by boat or land across a specific route such as the route found at Karnak temple...At the beginning of each year, they would hold a festival and also at the end to emphasize the philosophy of the eternal, cyclical nature of life. Egypt contained countless festivals across the year such as : The God's Birthday Parties (the Epagomenae): This festival celebrated the superadded days at the end of the year. Those five days brought the calendar to 365 days and in each day a specific god is celebrated. According to the myth of creation, The goddess of the sky Nut daughter of Ra got pregnant by her brother Geb the earth god which angered him and declared she will not give birth on any day of the year, which made the God of Knowledge play a game of Senet with Khonsu and win five day's worth of moonlight which nut gave birth in. The first day was the birth of Osiris, the Lord of the Duat (the Egyptian underworld), The second day was the birth of Horus, a very prominent falcon-headed deity associated with kingship and the sky, The third day celebrated Seth, a god associated with chaos, war and the deserts of Egypt, The fourth and fifth days celebrated the goddesses Isis and Nephthys, two sisters who were associated with protective funerary rites and who brought the god Osiris back from the dead.''

''Opet festival took place in Akhet during the second month, it is the most important festival in Egyptian history and the longest celebration in the Theban festival calendar as it stretched across 11 to 15 or even 20 days. In the festival, the king was rejuvenated by god Amun at Thebes. The festival would start by the Theban Triad (Amun, Mut, and Khonsu) would travel from the Karnak temple to the temple of Luxor. In Luxor temple, Amun-Re of Karnak would unite with Amun of Luxor and ensure the re-creation of the cosmos each year. The pharaoh was also part of this union and participated in the regeneration of this divine power....John Darnell argues that “Opet began on II Akhet fifteen under Thutmose III and lasted 11 days (Sethe 1907: 824, line 10); by the beginning of the reign of Ramesses III, the festival stretched over 24 days.''

''Spindle is most striking in the autumn when its narrow, oval leaves turn reddish-orange and clusters of bright pink-and-orange berries hang from its twigs. These berries provide food for all kinds of creatures, including mice, birds and even Red Foxes, but are poisonous to us....The spindle tree is native to most of Europe and is found in all of the UK except Scotland especially in areas with chalky soils....The name 'spindle tree' refers to the fact that the wood was used to make spindles for spinning wool. The scientific name Euonymus is derived from the Greek words 'eu' and onama' which together mean 'good name' or - more broadly - ' good luck'. The orange skins of the seeds were used in the past to make a dye.

Side note: ''An obelisk (/ˈɒbəlɪsk/; from Ancient Greek: ὀβελίσκος obeliskos;[1][2] diminutive of ὀβελός obelos, "spit, nail, pointed pillar"[3]) is a tall, four[citation needed]-sided, narrow tapering monument which ends in a pyramid-like shape or pyramidion at the top. Originally constructed by Ancient Egyptians and called tekhenu, the Greeks used the Greek term obeliskos to describe them, and this word passed into Latin and ultimately English.[4] Ancient obelisks are monolithic; that is, they consist of a single stone. Most modern obelisks are made of several stones.''

''Spit''?

What would the remedy be for such a weight ''upon one's shoulders''?

At the 'Shoulders'?

Continued: Alchemical equivalent..."The right choice is beyond the powers of the intellect, and C. R. elects upon the 'right way' by apparent accident. This is significantly by the actions of the black raven - an emblem found in alchemy as a symbol for 'dissolution'. It is a bird ever associated with both wisdom and with death. It is found in ancient Irish myth as the Morrigu, the great terrible goddess of the battlefield, who collects the souls of the slain. C. R. sees a white 'dove' and begins to feed it with his bread, whereupon the black raven appears and chases the dove, which flies off towards the south. C. R. runs after them, to find himself automatically upon 'one of the ways' and therefore unable to return for his 'bread' and belongings; by dint of a strong wind that blows from behind him {north?}. This is the 'breath' of the 'holy spirit', whose other aspect is the guiding dove." [Extract from the book by G. Knight. All emphasis, this readers]. For a 'connection'; try ''struggle''.

And/or: ''In order for the soul to progress, one opposite must integrate or 'marry' the other....we must make the unconscious, conscious.....To acknowledge the unaknowledged self. Within the shadow, within the conflict of oppositions lies our highest good and the souls greatest hidden creative power. The shadow must be eaten by a hungry raven - to discover the healing of our own dual selves.'' [Page 89 'Dreams of Isis'].

A working example - in the abstract sense of the word: "...This silence in itself is a mighty symbol. It is the stillness of the great feminine archetype, whether in the silence of the Sephirah Binah on the Tree of Life, the great Temple of form of all the spheres; or in the great silent UNmanifest Sea of the Ain Sof beyond Kether {Ariadne?} the ultimate 'feminine principle'. In the silence a 'unicorn' approaches wearing a golden collar. It bows to the 'lion'. The lion thereupon breaks the sword in two, and casts the pieces into the waters of the fountain. The testing having been done, the way to the higher worlds is clear, and the lion {'wolf'?} no longer bars the way. The roaring lion in the path, the Dweller on the Threshold or Shadow Self, is no longer a barrier to progress. A white 'dove' now appears with an olive branch of peace and wisdom. The lion 'devours' it and is quieted, and the unicorn joyfully departs." [Extract from 'The Rose Cross and the Goddess' by G. Knight].

North or South? Question. What does 'green' represent? Does the bird {'Sokar'} blend into the ''back of the head''?

Side note: "The ancient Egyptians...saw OSIRIS appear in the southern sky in the constellation of Orion, in the period immediately preceding the flood. But the flood itself was heralded by Isis...represented by the star Sirius, some time after the first reemergence of Orion from below the southern horizon...A person standing and facing south is the ''archetypal'' position by which the Egyptians orientated themselves in the ''Beloved Land'' {ta-meri}. One of the terms for ''south'' is also a term for ''face'', while the word usually used for ''north'' is related to a word that means "back of the head''. [Page 9 'Temple of the Cosmos' / J. Naydler].

Analogy: ''If once we accept this we are able to understand the full significance and efficacy of the signs which are the faces of the gods." [From within the book by C. Matthews].

'In profile' in relation to 'face on' ?

From a different perspective: The first hints of Bronze Age activity on the site (which lies on the south-east edge of the Flag Fen Basin) had emerged in the 1970s, when quarrying brought fragments of metalwork and pottery to the surface; further clues came in 1999, when local archaeologist Martin Redding spotted a series of stumps sticking out of a flooded quarry pit. Evaluations by Cambridge Archaeological Unit (CAU) followed in 2004 and 2006, but with no immediate threat to the underlying remains they were left largely undisturbed, albeit with careful monitoring in place. The results of the monitoring and their interpretation were equivocal, and therefore an agreement was reached between Forterra and Historic England to excavate the potentially at-risk remains.

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

A working example..."I should like to conclude this foreword with the final sentences of my ''Gedanken uber Dionysos'' {1935}: "Did the Greeks ever have such ideas about Dionysos as Otto's or these? They had it easier. For in myth and image, in visionary experience and ritual representation, they possessed a complete expression of the essence {''archetypal''?} of Dionysos. They had no need, as we do, to look for an 'intellectual' formulation, which will always remain incomplete." [From the book by C. Kerenyi]. Link to the 'Tower of Babel' i.e.,its purpose in defining something.

Question. What is that something?

"The mentality of ancient Egypt, argues the author, helps to free us from our present intellectual impasse, while ''symbolism'' must be recognised as the intuitive means of overcoming the limitations of reason."

A Mind set?

"Gnosis, is a feminine Greek noun, which means ''knowledge.'' It is often used for 'personal' knowledge compared with 'intellectual' knowledge {eidein}, as with the French 'connaitre' compared with 'savoir', or the German 'kennen' rather than 'wissen'...In Latin they simply drop the Greek 'G' and ''Gno'' becomes ''No'' as in 'Nosco' meaning to ''know'' and ''Noscentia'' meaning ''knowledge'' and 'Notus' meaning ''known..." [Wiki/'Gnosis']. Recall Part 1.

Something ''cut Across''?

Analogy: "It is therefore impossible for a scholar to possess knowledge of these problems, whether it be through his own researches or through his 'masters' teaching - without communicating part of that knowledge to others. This cannot be done in clear words; it must be done sparingly by way of hints. We find in the words of some of our Sages numerous hints and notes of this kind, but mixed up with words of others and with other subjects. In treating of these mysteries, as a rule, I quote as much as contains the principle idea, and leave the rest for those who are worthy of it." [Page 211 'Guide for the Perplexed'].

''Meat''?

A {working?} example: "Nonetheless, your courage is praiseworthy, and your sacrifice would have merit if there were not another solution besides your succession of hypotheses. But what if one could prove the possibility of a direct knowledge that reveals the reason for the existence of phenomena and gives us the keys to the laws of their genesis...Admit that it would be useless to refuse this, just as it would be useless to construct a building without first having established a permanent foundation." ['Journey into the Light']. Recall Part 1.

"Our lesson is to learn 'to be'. The freedom of being will extricate you from the oppression of doing. Herein lies the seed of knowingness that has the capacity to take you beyond all of this worlds knowledge..." [From the book 'The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself' by E. Pearl].

''Knowingness'' in relation to the meaning and purpose of such words as 'Gnosis', - by way of the Verb 'to be', i.e.,what it implies. Try ''to be''.

A working example: "....also the language of Plutarch in some passages appears to me to be deserving of more careful handling than has yet been accorded it, for a number of sentences seem to have been purposely phrased so as {'to be'} capable of conveying a double meaning." [ From the chapter 'The Mysteries of Isis and Osiris' within the book 'Thrice-Greatest Hermes: Part 1' / G. Mead].

'On Having No Head: Zen and the Rediscovery of the Obvious' / D. E. Harding.

West. Coming from or going to?

''The best day of my life - my rebirth day, so to speak - was when I found I had no head. This is not a literally gambit, a witticism designed to arouse interest at any cost. I mean it in all seriousness. I have no head. It was when I was 33 {'thirtythree'} that I made the discovery, though it certainly came out of the blue, it did so in response to an urgent inquiry - I had for several months been absorbed in the question: What am I?....What actually happened was something absurdly simple and unspectacular: just for the moment I stopped thinking. Reason and imagination and all mental chatter died down. For once words really failed me. I forgot my name, my humanness, my thingness, ALL that could be called me or mine. Past and future dropped away. It was if I been born in that instant, brand new, mindless, innocent of all memories, there existed only the Now, that present moment that was clearly given in it. To look was enough....It took me no time at all to notice that this nothing, this hole where a head should have been was no ordinary vacancy {void?} no mere nothing. On the contrary, it was very much occupied...." [Chapter one entitled 'The True Seeing' from the book 'On Having No Head'].

hatA 'real time' example of same..."For as long as i could remember, i had been visiting another 'dimension.' When i was two, i smashed my forehead in a fall, affecting the optic nerve and necessitating an operation. Perhaps the blow to the head triggered my psychic abilities; whatever the cause, one minute i was lying in hospital, the next i found myself in a totally different place. I was in a garden full of colour.......As soon as i entered i would find myself walking down a narrow path....i kept to the path as though i had an appointment....i would pass under an arch, turn right to climb up a grassy slope......At the top i would enter a small hexagonal building with a domed roof.....From the first, i had an inner knowledge of what to do. I would go to a chair, sit down and wait. After a while, someone would enter and sit behind me. Though i never looked behind, i somehow knew that this person had a thin face, kindly eyes and long light brown hair. He had no name, and he never spoke; we simply sat in silence. What seemed like moments later, i would stand up and leave. Instantly i would find myself back in the 'real' world." [Prologue to the book, 'Mind to Mind' by B. Shine].

Question. Animus or shadow archetype?

Side note: : {as one example}: ''What is really troubling them is their own Shadow, quite literally. For the first time the subtle levels of ordinary awareness have been expanded to bring into focus the darker side of the student's own nature. It has always been there, it is just that any kind of psychic activity be it basic meditation, simple pathworking and the like {study?}, will have expanded perception just enough for it to appear around the edge of the screen of reality....This shadow can get bigger and blacker {blacksmith?}....The way to deal with it is by acknowleding its existence, as part of yourself. It may be the forgotten self, the ignored self, the repressed self, even, but it is still a real, and actually valuable part of the complex and unique being which is you...Befriend it....find ways of working in harmony....It is part of the landscape of the mind, and will be far more use if you allow it to function properly, as your conscience or Guardian Angel.'' [Page 87 'The Path Through the Labyrinth' / M. Green].

Question. Carbon/Diamond?

Question two. Why does this subject have a fascination with same. Nothing more than an understanding of dream symbolism, from its beginning to the present date? Understanding that 'universal' framework gives a deeper meaning, a plausible one.

Try ''quintessence'' its meaning to subject material.

"The lengthened shadow of a man Is history, said Emerson." [Extract from 'Selected Poems' by T. S. Eliot].

''Home Town'' of the 'Cobblers'.

A more closer to the 'mark' definition {understanding?} of same principle..."Adrian Gilbert, who was previously mentioned, has written several books on the subject of ancient knowledge and esoteric wisdom. In his book 'Signs in the Sky' he noted that the term 'serpent' was frequently used in ancient times to define a shadow cast by the sun. I couldn't help remembering that the Celtic cross in Northamptonshire shows an image of intertwined serpents on the circular head. This would make sense if the cross were used for measurements using the shadow of the sun, and a shadow was regarded in ancient times as a serpent." [From the book by K. Gest].

Question. What do you think?

''The county boundary line between Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire is the smallest in England at only nineteen inches long.'' ['The Chase'].

''Watford Gap /ˈwɒtfərd ɡæp/ is a low-lying area between two hills, close to the village of Watford, Northamptonshire, England. Engineers from Roman times onwards have found it to be an ideal route for connecting the Midlands with South East England. The A5 road, the West Coast Main Line railway, the M1 motorway and a branch of the Grand Union Canal traverse in parallel a space about 400 metres (1,300 ft) wide. It has been written and spoken of as marking the divide between Northern England and Southern England... In the era of Roman Britain, the Watling Street Roman road used the gap.''

'Void'?

Long or short? In movement? Left or right?

''Saints Crispin and Crispinian are the Christian patron saints of cobblers, curriers, tanners, and leather workers. They were beheaded during the reign of Diocletian; the date of their execution is given as 25 {'twentyfive'} October 285 or 286.... They earned enough by their trade to support themselves and also to aid the poor. Their success attracted the ire of Rictus Varus, governor of Belgic Gaul,[2] who had them tortured and thrown into the river with millstones around their necks. Though they survived, they were beheaded by the Emperor...The Battle of Agincourt was fought on Saint Crispin's feastday. Shakespeare's St. Crispin's Day Speech (sometimes called the "Band Of Brothers" Speech) from his play Henry V has immortalized the day. Also, for the Midsummer's Day Festival in the third act of Die Meistersinger, Wagner has the shoemakers' guild enter singing a song of praise to St. Crispin...The St Crispin Street Fair is a fair held periodically in the Market Square of Northampton, England. It is organised by Northampton Borough Council....''

'Mothers brother'?

Side note: Agincourt = the first battle to be won with the LONG bow.

Something extra: ''The 'stomach' organ is mentioned in the St. Crispin's Day speech in Henry V and Elizabeth 1's speech about the Spanish Armada.'' ['The Chase'].

''Stomach for a battle'' etc.

Question. What else does the 'Stomach' relate to?

''Niger is Latin for black.''

Addition 'information': "In the Egyptian myths, the human headed god Ptah is said to have 'created' the world from dark clay. Ptah was from the ancient mystery center of Memphis, which in the ancient tongue was called Hi-Ku-Ptah. This ancient Egyptian phrase meant 'the Home of Ptah'. The Greeks lisped this Egyptian as 'Aegyptos', and from this imperfection modern Europeans derived 'Egypt' from it. In the recesses of the great temple at Abu Simbel, one still finds an image of Ptah. During the 20 days after 10 February, and for the same period after the 10 October, the sun strikes deep into the darkness of the funerary chamber. Its solar rays gild the stone deities in the chamber. Only three are bathed in its rays - the fourth image {Ptah} is scarcely touched, leaving it in the dark 'wilderness' during those 40 days of light...It seems that according to Egyptian mythology, the world was created by a god of shadows. In western creation myths, such 'darkness' is represented with a snake. This serpent of 'paradise' was at first merely a 'cunning' serpent, but later it was called..." ['The Zelator'].

What do the biologists call that ''cunning'' aspect of the mind?

Forked tongue?

Side note: ''In tenpin bowling a ''double'' is getting two STRIKES in a row.'' ['The Chase'].

Question. ''Transcendent third'' symbolism ? {i.e,,10 days = one third of something} together with ''four'' symbolism ? {i.e.,'4' aspects of the self}. Enlarged elsewhere.

The main point being - defining this first yet last subject - gets inside those heads - Heads that understand a subject - in order to arrive at those answers - sooner or later.

Head of the corner?

For a further head scratch - try ''cunning''.

logos

Food for thought..."Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of god." [Matthew 4:4].

"In Ancient Greek, Logos had many meanings, but non of them is ''Word,'' which is based on a translation of a translation. When the Greek New Testament was translated into Latin, Logos became Verbum; and when the English King James translation was made from the Latin version, Verbum became ''Word,'' twice removed from the original text''................."Among its many [true] meanings, Logos designates the power of ''reason,'' the pattern or order of things, the principle of relationship, and an organized articulation of something.".............."Logos has the same meaning as both the Latin words 'ratio' and 'oratio'. Ratio is the principle of Reason in its many senses, yet it is also ratio in a mathematical sense, as in continued geometrical proportion. Oratio is a discourse, an articulation, a setting forth of the ''ratio,'' or nature of things. Logos, as a principle, is the natural order of things, the principle of reason, relation, and harmony, which exists both within the natural fabric of the universe and within the human mind, [represented as ''shadow'' and/ or ''anima''. See it? This readers input]. It is the faculty whereby one thing is related to another through analogy, or the power of ''proportional insight.''.........."If we are to appreciate the Prologue to the Fourth Gospel and other 'mystical' writings, all of these meanings must be 'simultaneously' held in mind." [Chapter 3, 'Jesus Christ Sun of God'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Recall Part 1.

Try ''harmony'' - while recalling those 'three' universal {concepts?}.

"To become conscious of itself it makes itself simultaneously a subject and object." [From the book by T. Freke and P. Gandy].

'On Having No Head: Zen and the Rediscovery of the Obvious' / D. E. Harding.

"The science of the I Ching, indeed, is not based on the causality principle, but on a principle {hitherto unnamed because not met with among us}, which I have tentatively called the 'synchronistic' principle. My occupation with the psychology of the unconscious processes long ago necessitated my casting around for another explanatory principle, because the causality principle seemed to me inadequate for the explanation of certain remarkable phenomena of the unconscious {Wolfgang Pauli?}. Thus I found, that there are psychic parallelisms which cannot be related to each other causally, but which must stand in another sort of CONNECTEDNESS. This connection seemed to me to lie mainly in the relative simultaneity of the events, therefore the expression 'synchronistic'..." [Page 141, The Secret of the Golden Flower / R. Wilhelm WITH a commentary by G. Jung].

Try ''simultaneous'' to see subject material in the universal sense of the 'word' - since the oral tradition BEFORE ''the written word came into common use''.

"Those who listen to the word, and follow the best [meaning] in it: those are the ones whom god has guided, and those are the ones endued with understanding." [Quran 39:18; including parenthesis].

A {working?} example: "Why does it seem to me sometimes now, that i understand absolutely nothing?'' said one of those present. ''Formerly i used to think that sometimes at any rate there were some things that i understood but now...''It means you have begun to understand,'' said G. ''When you understood nothing you thought you understood everything or at any rate that you were able to understand everything. Now, when you have begun to understand, you think you do not understand. This comes about because the taste of understanding was quite unknown to you before. And now the taste of understanding seems to be a lack of understanding..." ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

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

engravedSide note: Apply the above to define {in the broader base} - sense of the 'word' {foundation?} - the following: "A special case of the geometric reconciliation of opposites involves the Golden Ratio, or ''the section'' as the Greeks referred to it, which grows from the diagonal of the half-square. Quite a number of vases display its proportions because it offers artisans a particular powerful tool for guiding the viewers attention around a spiral of squares towards its ''eye'' - the compositions ''center of gravity'' where all diagonals cross. The architect, teacher, and writer Jay Hambidge rediscovered this geometry and called it 'dynamic symmetry'...." [Page 20 'Alexandria: The Journal of the Western Cosmological Tradition' / D. Fideler].

As one example try {'see'?} ''vase'' relative to the whole {i.e., subject material}.

Then try ''static/dynamic'' as a means...?

horus eye

An objective eye?

Continued: Egyptian equivalent..."The most ancient writings in our historical period are from the ancient Egyptians. These writings are referred to as hieroglyphics...The original name given to these writings by the ancient Egyptians is 'Metu Neter', meaning ''the writing of god'' or 'Neter Metu' or ''divine speech''. These writings were inscribed in temples, coffins and papyruses and contained the teachings in reference to the spiritual nature of the human being and the ways [or paths. This readers input] - to promote an awakening or resurrection..." [Extract taken from the book by S. Ashby].

Question. 'Tasting'?

hhhhh

Arthur/Bear/Dragon. Coincidence? All as a means….?

"The masculine principle, or Logos, thus came to be revered in the person of the Sun god; and the godlike qualities inherent in man, his capacity to achieve and to order, to formulate, discriminate, and generalize, were venerated in a sun hero {'Arthur'?} who undertook his twelve labours and slew the dragons of ignorance and sloth, thus acquiring consciousness, a spiritual value of a different order." [Chapter 3, 'Women's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern' by M. Esther Harding].

Question. 'Tasting'?. Representation of, i.e.,from something unknown; that 'unknown' that can be represented with 'water',i.e.,as an example [Hebrew] - Moses = ''Drawn from water''. Question. What symbol represents that 'action' ?

"Solomon 'built' the temple. David designed the temple. But it was Moses who prepared the foundations." [From the book by K. Gest. Emphasis, this readers].

12x12?

Question. ''...masculine principle...'' = Shadow or anima? or both? i.e., as the start point of a learning curve; if only in defining a subject.

'Mother of Dragons'?

Side note: "Another series of seven stars {i.e.,within the constellation Eridanus} was called in Bayer's text Beemin and Theemin. This last used by Bode and now in current use, is perhaps the Arabic Al Tau'aman and the Jews Teomim, the Twins. Grotius thought it came from the Arabic term for two medicinal roots; but Idler suggests that it is from the Hebrew Bamma'yim - In The Water - with the possibility of it being from a distorted form of Al Thalim, the Ostrich." ['Star Names and Their Meaning'].

''In the Water'' as opposed to ''Out of it''? Try Part 5 to take something further.

Any connection to those 12 stones in the sacred 'breastplate' together with what Urim and Thummim represent, i.e.,fate - positive and/or negative. One way or the other- depending on the individual.

''So lets go Aurora hunting with our positive hats on.'' [Michaela Strachan / 'Under The Xmas Sky' / BBC2 / 2018].

As seen from a different perspective: " It is a common law that when two forces, male/female, positive/negative, unite, a third force is created. This could be where the concept of the religious 'Trinity' originates; the Father-Mother-Son or, in the Western religions where the feminine has been discarded, the Father-Son-Holy Spirit..." ['Truth Vibrations'].

Question. What was Moses renowned for - 'Law' or 'Grace'.

Question 2. Why?

"These things {i.e.,what the author defines as ''figurative language'', i.e.,keys/signs etc} - belong likewise to the mysteries of the Law; and although we have treated them in a general manner, they can easily be understood in all their details in accordance with the above remarks." [Page 249 'Guide for the Perplexed' / M. Maimonides].

''One of the greatest philosophical works of all time'' {back cover}. Follow the title of the book to 'see' it in its broader view BEFORE those two bigger questions are asked.

Question. A mind set?

 

 

izapa

IZAPA... Mayan equivalent? i.e.,''Izapa gains its fame through its art style...Sculptures of stelae, and also altars that look like frogs...The stelae and frog altars generally went together..." {Wiki/'Izapa']. Also situated at the base of a volcano...6th tallest mountain in Mexico...close to a river. Question. Obsidian link?

OR..."The first plane [i.e.,others define that 'first' plane as 'primordial mound'], is the only plane upon which the Initiation of the Logos is given, but it is this initiation of the Logos which marks the transmission from the involuntary to the evolutionary arc, [key] for it awakens the divine spark which has well and truly been called the 'god within' {'Son'?} and which evolves into union with the 'god without' {'Father'?}. [Chapter 21, 'The Cosmic Doctrine'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice." Martin Luther King. Think on it, relative to what this subject defines and represents within a ''u - turn." Understanding that universal framework defines all the above. Gives it a plausible logic.

"As David Kelley points out, the upturned frog-mouth glyph means ''to be born''..." ['Galactic Alignment']. Question. An awakening of something?

N. B. Close to 'Oak' Island = 'Frog' Island and 'Apple' Island. Coincidence? ['Curse of Oak Island'].

Try ''Apple''.

Side note: "Among early Arabs Fomalhaut {Southern Fish} was - the First Frog; and in its location on the Borgian globe is the word Thalim, the Ostrich - evidently another individual title...In Persia, known as one of the four Royal Star Guardians of heaven...portended eminence, fortune and power...The 2nd Frog was found within Cetus - The Whale - tail end of...Southern tail end of..." [ 'Star Names and Their Meaning']. Try ''map''.

Question. What would the ''Ostrich'' represent in the natural sense of the 'word'? i.e.,head in the sand / flightless / lays 'clutch 'of eggs - all in relation to it being a 'desert bird'?

Question 2. Why bother at all?

HOOD.

Continued: "Iris - in later times to be honoured as the goddess of the rainbow that arches across the sky - carries messages from the heights of Olympus {the heavens} to the Earth or into the sea. Homer says: 'Iris, fleet of the wind, was sent by Zeus to tell the bad news among the Trojans on earth - and did she wing her way till she came close up to the great shaker of the earth {Poseidon}.' In this messenger role she is thought to be associated with the concept of the 'dome' of the heavens and the 'arc' of the celestial sphere." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

A connection of something. Try ''dome'' as well as ''arc'' / ''rainbow'' - to understand something other than the obvious.

Question. ''great shaker'' = earthquake. Does this tell us anything about the end of cultures?

Top/down = 'earthquakes'. Bottom/up = 'floods'?

Patriarch {Solar related}. Matriarch {Lunar}?

Southern Hemisphere - Northern one?

The Cloud People of Peru. Began a culture way up in the clouds. Mountain tops. Semi-circular 'faces' - if only in the 'lower' sense of the word. Any flowers found?

''IRIS was the goddess of the rainbow and the messenger of the Olympian gods. She was often described as the handmaiden and personal messenger of Hera. Iris was a goddess of sea and sky--her father Thaumas "the wondrous" was a marine-god, and her mother Elektra "the amber" a cloud-nymph.''

Middle English maidenhed, from maiden + -hed -hood; akin to Middle English -hod -hood

Side note: ''Iris is a genus of 260 species of flowering plants with showy flowers. It takes its name from the Greek word for a rainbow, which is also the name for the Greek goddess of the rainbow, Iris. Some authors state that the name refers to the wide variety of flower colors found among the many species. As well as being the scientific name, iris is also widely used as a common name for all Iris species, as well as some belonging to other closely related genera. A common name for some species is 'flags', while the plants of the subgenus Scorpiris are widely known as 'junos', particularly in horticulture. It is a popular garden flower." [Wiki].

Gilly? {flower}. Game of Thrones.

And/or: ''Dome of stones'' discovered over what became known as the ''vertical shaft'' - as reported by Bobby Restall in his daily diary while on Oak Island.

And/or: "Ancient symbols have great value - if only because they compel one to avoid the pitfall of ''taking things for granted''. By making things difficult, they force the mind to dig down into the roots of reality and to fathom deeply unconscious vital processes." ['The Zodiac as the Universal Matrix' / Dane Rudhyar].

Cancer?

Cahuachi within the bend of a river... "On the other side of the river are the Nazca Lines. They are the reason that Cahuachi was built in this location...It was considered a 'Holy City'. " Enlarged elsewhere. Recall the Holy Kings {City?} of Copan. Coincidence or a meaningful one? Question. Volcanic ground? "Ken, crystals are little more than rocks. I began to explain how crystals are actually...{continued elsewhere].

Can only be seen from the sea. The most ancient of the Nazca symbols. The beginning of something. Two 'arms' raised?

A working example: "Much has been written on the gnostic, moral and 'magical' Great Arcana, and no doubt still more will be written in the future - their themes being central and inexhaustible at one and the same time. Here it is a matter simply of considering the Great Arcanum of the marriage of intelligence and wisdom in the context of the two other Great Arcana of the tradition. For the three great arcana, are truth to tell, only three aspects on three planes of one single Great Arcanum of the marriage of opposites in the head, in the heart and in the will. In other words, it is a matter of three aspects of the sole Great Arcanum of the cross, since it is always the cross which realizes the marriage of opposites..." [Taken from 'Meditations On The Tarot' by Tomberg]. Horizontal / vertical link. Try ''polarities''.

"...in the head; heart; will..." = ''thinking; feeling; willing''. Anything?

''The symbol of the 'lower' will is the altar...'' {East?}.

Question. ''Will'' = Law . ''Heart'' = Grace? All as a means...? Try ''Moses''.

Analogy {i.e.,as seen from a different perspective}: "You need five lights because traditionary you always have one in the center of the altar to represent the Light of the Universe, or the spark of god at the center of your working, and one candle at each point of the compass." [ 'Magic in the Aquarian Age' / Marian Green]. Try ''spark'' Part 1.

Quintessence?

And/or: "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']. Representational of.

Scorpio?

Try Part 1 to enlarge on the word ''sacrifice'' before that inner voice {first impressions?} suggest something else. Then try ''teacher''.

The hand of Sabazios. Thumb = pinecone?

A working example {i.e.,something hinted at}: "You have spoken about emotional balance without giving us the means of achieving it. Between the lower stage of our emotional impulses and the stage where the spiritual being comes into play {i.e.,'higher'}, i must confess that i don't see the steps in between...'That's a bit of an exaggeration, Thomas. I'm showing you the swamp into which you're sinking, and on the other hand the firm earth of your 'suprahuman' goals: do you expect me to take the jump for you as well?'..." ['Journey into the Light'. Includes italics]. Try ''great step'' for a further connection.

Refresher: "As David Kelley points out, the upturned frog-mouth glyph means ''to be born''..." ['Galactic Alignment']. Question. An awakening of something? Representational of.

''There's more to the swamp than meets the eye''. Marty Lagina [Curse of Oak Island].

A work in progress: {in situ example}: Ship parts recently found - together with a stone path S/E of the swamp on Oak Island. The deductive process used to evaluate all the FINDS.

Try Francis Bacon and John Dee to understand why. To evaluate a MIND SET.

Analogy of same - but now simplified..."Hermeticism knows the law of the ''marriage of opposites'' and it knows that inspiration is the marriage of activity and passivity in the soul." [Same book].

Working example: Two aspects of Oak Island 'joined' together = swamp. Creator = Francis Bacon FATHER of the scientific method i.e., by objective analysis {deductive method}. A practical, working INSITU example. 'SEE' it? It main aim and purpose. The REASON for its creation. To invoke the cognitive faculty. Get it?

Was Mr Bacon a member of any ''Mystery'' club?

Victim or initiate?

Refresher: "The Agnisuryans respond to the sound. The waters ebb and flow. Let the 'magician' guard himself from drowning, at the point where land and water meet. The midway spot, which is neither dry nor wet {fen-land/BOGLAND?} - 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 {'fire'?}."

And/or: Its flip side {'duality' link} 'Feminine' aspect {'soul'} in relation to: "G udea made offerings of honey and butter when the foundations were laid; when the building was finished an auspicious day was waited for, and when it came the image of the god was removed to the new temple, and Gudea sprinkled the ground with oil, and set out offerings of honey, butter, wine and dates, grain mixed with milk, food untouched by 'fire', for the gods." [ Chapter 3, 'The Sacred Bee'].

Try 'Bee/honey' to get closer to THAT mindset.

In its most basic form - one could say - An expression of [the beginnings] of a learning curve. The real question however, [if only to this reader] - is why. Why express anything? Understanding what they all imply by the 'divine bit' relative to each life form; especially the human one - gives a plausible answer.

Possible empirical analogy, ".......Put another way, when we said that the electron is 'somewhere within the wave' we really meant to say that it is simultaneously everywhere in the wave! This is how we must think because if we suppose the electron is actually located at some specific point, then the wave is no longer spread out and we lose the water wave analogy. As a result, we cannot explain the interference pattern....

photon3

Think about it in relation to that ''bit''. If only in defining a mind set.

....Again it might be worth rereading ['repetitive' link. This readers input], the above piece of reasoning because it motivates much of what follows. There is no sleight of hand: what we are saying is that we need to describe a spread-out wave, that is also a point like electron, and one possible way to achieve this is to say that the electron sweeps from source to screen following all possible paths at once. This suggests that we should interpret an electron wave ['plateau' / 'valley' link- in the micro sense]- as describing a single electron that trav els from source to screen by an infinity of different routes. In other words, the correct answer to the question 'how did that electron get to the screen' is...'it' traveled by an infinity of possible routes, some of which went through the upper slit and some through the lower one. Clearly the ''it'' that is the electron is not an ordinary everyday particle. This is what it means to be a quantum particle." [Chapter 3, ' The Quantum Universe:Everything that can Happen Does Happen'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Remember [before those first impressions take hold], a possible analogy, nothing else. Some individuals especially within that 'new age' phenomena, would latch [key] onto the above simply because of Einsteins ''spooky at a distance'' quote. This subject however once understood by research and analytical discipline justifies that ''possibility.'' Understanding what all cultures infer by the ''divine'' word in relation to that universal 'framework,' makes 'sense' [of the above] from both a 'spiritual' and empirical viewpoint. Especially when taking into account the Fine Structure Constant. Mentioned elsewhere. As a further exercise to add [or detract] from that possible 'evaluation', put ''simultaneously'' in the usual box,i.e.,what does it imply?

Hence:

"By ''Spirit'' we mean the Life-Power. A glance at your dictionary will show you that ''spirit'' is derived from the Latin Spiritus, whose root meaning is breath. Closely akin to the Latin noun are the Greek 'Pneuma', the Hebrew 'Ruach' and the Sanskrit 'Prana'. Each of these nouns signifies both ''breath'' and ''life''.....Philosophers have always attributed a 'mental quality' to this principle." [P. F. Case. Vol 1]. 'See' it?

"A new perspective is being sought in the midst of this turmoil, a new relationship with others, nature, and with the spiritual aspect of our being. There is a new sense of universal relatedness and of vistas yet untapped in the human potential.

"The standing pillars found in various enclosures at Gobekli-tepe are regularly between 6.5 and 10 feet in size and are thought to weigh between 5.5 and 16.5 tons apiece {five and fifteen metric tonnes}. Even more of an enigma is that sitting in a quarry a quarter of a mile away from the occupational mound is an unfinished T-shaped monolith..." [Extract from the book 'Gobekli Tepe' by A. Collins]. Try ''unfinished'' as a means...?

Recall what the 'Quarry' represents - if only in the context of this subject.

Found on Oak island. Triple spiral / thirteen branches /  Two strands entwinned throughout. Question. Reworkings from the old?

A working example: {i.e.,something hinted at}: "This certainly had its consequences in the 12th and 13th centuries, when the church and the cathedral builders, began to integrate into their work the thrilling new symbols, the esoteric reworkings of the ancient astrological quarries of astrology, which had been reintroduced to Europe by way of translations of the Arabic lore. In some cases the forms were more Arabian than they were classical." ['The Secret Zodiac'].

'Floods' / 'Quarries' - as a means...?

Hence: "I note in passing that the Book of Enoch has always been of great importance to the Freemasons. Indeed, certain Masonic rituals - in curious resonance with Islamic traditions - identify Enoch with the ancient Egyptian wisdom god Thoth...We are told that Enoch was the inventor of writing, that he taught men the art of building and that before the flood, he feared that the 'real secrets would be lost'. To prevent this he concealed the Grand Secret, engraved on a white oriental porphyry stone, in the bowels of the earth..." [Page 339. 'The Magicians of the Gods'].

A working example: "Traditions state that there was once a time when 'great magicians' used this stone to focus there 'mana' power - to make the Moai - the famous megalithic statues on Easter Island - 'walk from the quarry to the places where they were set up'..." ['The Magicians of the Gods'].

''He who walked with god'' ?

Question. ''The place where they were set up'' = foundations. What were they composed of?

REFRESHER:{as one example only}: "There is a mosque whose foundation was laid from the first day on piety; it is more worthy of thy standing forth therein." [i.e., in relation to ''The original mosque of piety built by the Muhammad himself]..."Which then is best? - he that layeth his foundation on piety to God and his good pleasure? - or he that layeth his foundation on an undermined sand cliff ready to crumble to pieces?" [Quran 9:108/109].

"Gandalf! - Its Thorin.'....'YES and Fili , Kili and Dwalin. He's taking his best warriors . To cut off the head of the snake.'' {Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf - 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies'].

N.B. Orcs 'riding' Wolves. Dwarfs riding Rams{Goats?}.

"The phrase "cut the head off the snake" is a metaphorical expression that means to eliminate the source of a problem or to remove a leader or key person in order to weaken or destroy an organization or group. The head of a snake is where it has its fangs, which are used to inject venom into its victim." Horemheb?

And/or: "In one swift, fluid motion Neville broke free of the Body-Bind Curse upon him; the flaming Hat fell off him and he drew from its depths something silver, with a glittering, rubied handle –
The slash of the silver blade could not be heard over the roar of the oncoming crowd, or the sounds of the clashing giants, or of the stampeding centaurs, and yet it seemed to draw every eye. With a single stroke, Neville sliced off the great snake’s head, which spun high into the air, gleaming in the light flooding from the Entrance Hall, and Voldemort’s mouth was open in a scream of fury that nobody could hear, and the snake’s body thudded to the ground at his feet."
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

"Both Harry and Lord Voldemort regain consciousness in the Forbidden Forest. Harry pretends to be dead. Narcissa Malfoy is ordered to check on Harry. She sees that he is alive, but quietly asks him if Draco is alive. Harry tells her that her son is indeed alive, and she tells Voldemort that Harry is dead. Hagrid is forced to carry Harry’s body up to the castle, where Voldemort displays him to the defenders of the castle in an attempt to break their will to resist. Neville Longbottom confronts Voldemort, and refuses to join him. Voldemort hits him with a Body-Binding jinx and puts the Sorting Hat on his head. Voldemort declares there will be no more Sorting at Hogwarts and set the Hat on fire. Neville pulls Gryffindor’s sword out of the Hat and kills Nagini when Voldemort is distracted by the arrival of the centaurs. The battle resumes, and Voldemort is finally defeated by Harry."

In Zosimos this circular thinking appears in the sacrificial priests identity with his 'victim': He spews forth his own flesh and rends himself with his own teeth. The homunculus therefore stands for the uroboros, which devours itself and gives birth to itself.'' [Page 84 'Alchemical Studies' C. G. Jung].

A working example: ''The master of the house said to me: 'You have stretched your neck upward and attempted to see what is done. The brazen man is the priest who sacrifices and is sacrificed and spews forth his own flesh. Power is given to him and this water and over the people who are punished'. At last i was overcome with the desire to mount the seven steps and to see the seven punishments, and, as was suitable, in a single day; so i went back in order to complete the ascent. Passing it several times i at length came upon the path. But as i was about to ascend i lost my way again....discouraged i fell asleep....saw a barber in a robe of royal purple who stood outside the place of punishments. I followed him to the place ....He entered and was consumed by fire....I understood this to be the barber as the brazen man....Further on he meets ''an old man whitened by years,'' {Agathodaimon the leaden man}, who asks: ''Why are you stretched out''....who later on ''changes'' from lead to silver to gold. And/or ''Meridian of the Cinnabar'' in relation to the ''fourth step'' and ''from the east a person with a sword and a person behind ''clad in white and comely to see who was named Meridian of the Sun.''

R.I.P.

As ONE example: "The term porphyry is from Ancient Greek and means "purple". Purple was the color of royalty, and the "imperial porphyry" was a deep purple igneous rock with large crystals of plagioclase. Some authors claimed the rock was the hardest known in antiquity. "Imperial" grade porphyry was thus prized for monuments and building projects in Imperial Rome and later....Subsequently, the name was given to any igneous rocks with large crystals. The adjective porphyritic now refers to a certain texture of igneous rock regardless of its chemical and mineralogical composition. Its chief characteristic is a large difference in size between the tiny matrix crystals and the much larger phenocrysts. Porphyries may be aphanites or phanerites, that is, the groundmass may have invisibly small crystals as in basalt, or crystals easily distinguishable with the eye {'naked'?}, as in granite. Most types of igneous rocks display some degree of porphyritic texture." ['Wiki'].

''Igneous rock is also a rare term used to mean fiery.'' ['The Chase'].

Pedestal?

 

A working example: "In a pit to the "immediate east" of the 1st Dynasty Emperor's burial mound is found on the floor of the pit hundreds of loose "stone squares": 'Stone was very rarely used as a material in ancient China - yet here are found an enormous amount of stone artefacts'. They are pieced together to form body armour {and helmet}. More than 600 pieces to each set that are fastened together with bronze wires. Covers the torso and 'lower' regions {i.e., below the belt}, and shoulder blades. A  'T' shape form. Only a tenth of an inch thick. Would shatter under a hard blow. A real suit would be made of leather.

So the question is asked as to why is it made of stone?: "We believe that just as the leather suit is for practical purposes, the stone one is for protection in the afterlife." ['Blowing Up History: Terracotta Army' / S2 EP8].

A labyrinth of questions to be answered internally?

Refresher: "A pedestal (from French piédestal, Italian piedistallo 'foot of a stall') or plinth is a support at the bottom of a statuevasecolumn, or certain altars. Smaller pedestals, especially if round in shape, may be called socles. In civil engineering, it is also called basement. The minimum height of the plinth is usually kept as 45 cm (for buildings)[citation needed].

Inward or Outward?

It transmits loads from superstructure to the substructure and acts as the retaining wall for the filling inside the plinth or raised floor.

In sculpting, the terms base, plinth, and pedestal are defined according to their subtle differences. A base is defined as a large mass that supports the sculpture from below. A plinth is defined as a flat and planar support which separates the sculpture from the environment. A pedestal, on the other hand, is defined as a shaft-like form that raises the sculpture and separates it from the base.[1]

An elevated pedestal or plinth that bears a statue, and which is raised from the substructure supporting it (typically roofs or corniches), is sometimes called an acropodium. The term is from Greek ἄκρος ákros 'topmost' and πούς poús (root ποδ- pod-) 'foot'."

Exalted?

Dross?

Something extra: ''I realise that i have been obsessed with removing the dross and scoria that can in fact only be washed away up to a point - beyond which there must always remain a residue of impurity. It is the glory of the Work that its dross also can be raised up. The Albedo can not only succeed in spite of the remaining stain, but because of it. It is the nature of Sol, may he rise never so high, always to bear with him a reminder of the sulphurous darkness where he died and decayed. Only in the final accounting, perhaps when the body is 'exalted' and made volatile can the last dark vestige of fleshliness be wiped out and the corporeal spirit descend into its spiritual body.'' [Page 323 'Mercurius'].

Analogy: "In the early solar zodiac of China, Libra is the crocodile or Dragon, its national emblem. The Persian sphere shows a human figure lifting the Scales in one hand and grasping a lamb with the other, this being the usual form of a weight for a balance in the early East. It would be impossible to find a better presentation or picturization of the immortal story of, the Plan For Man. Aries the lamb, and Libra the Scales are polar opposites. If the lamb is not slain, equilibrium results." [Page 203/4 'The Zodiac and the Salts of Salvation' / G. W. Carey + I. E. Perry].

HENCE: ''This 'light' the darkness comprehends. Therefore it turns blackness into brightness {'Tropic of Cancer'?}, burns away 'all superfluities' and leaves behind nothing but ''dross and scoria and the rejected earth.'' [Page 160/1 'Alchemical Studies' / C. G. Jung].

''Scoria is a pyroclastic, highly vesicular, dark-colored volcanic rock that was ejected from a volcano as a molten blob {'glass'} and cooled in the air to form discrete grains or clasts. It is typically dark in color (generally dark brown, black or purplish-red), and basaltic or andesitic in composition.''

Other authors do the same, using the 'numbers' of each chapter, and the information within each, to accord, with number symbolism. Try and spot some, i.e.,Enoch in relation to the number 'seven' as mentioned in chapter seven of the 'Secret History of the World' by J. Black. Together with....

A replica of the one found at Sutton Hoo. Question. Where is it found in the night sky. What constellation is it associated with? Has it been around since the beginning of the 'creation' of the constellations?

".....On another count, Apollo was associated with the number seven. Hence the reason he was known as 'Seven leading,' and/or ''Seven born.'' He was born on the seventh day of the Greek month Bysios, the day on which his festivals were held. His Lyre has seven strings, each one associated with the seven planets as well as the Pythagorean ''music of the spheres'' and the seven vowels of the Greek alphabet. The same number also relates to Apollo's omphalos at Delphi, in relation to the seven directions......" [Chapter 4, 'Jesus Christ Sun of God......' Mentioned elsewhere]. Question. Why. What does it all represent?

From a different perspective, with something extra: "The number seven, or septenary, is the sacred number of all theogonies and all symbols, because it is composed of the triad and tetrad....Seven can be thought of as a combination of the triangle and cross - the alchemical symbol of Sulphur - the symbol of Self-Consciousness." Enlarged elsewhere.

''Three and four''?

A working example: ''Characteristically, Dorn overlooked the fact that the fourth is in this case the microcosmic mortal man, who complements the upper triad.'' [Page 166 'Alchemical Studies' / C. G. Jung].

"Nature is a net of correspondence to be deciphered and integrated into a holistic {whole?} worldview." [extract from the book 'The Magister'. Parenthesis, this readers].

N.B. The root of the word ''holy'' = whole: i.e.,a reunion of the ''whole?'' By way of ''correspondences?''

As an example...Hera in relation to 'hero' {wikipedia/hera} and/or Leto in relation to the Pole Star. 'Queen' relative to 'mistress' - top/down in relation to bottom/up - ALL as a means to an understanding something other than the obvious...

Goddess of ''pure water''. In Greek Hippo means 'horse'. Seven or 'eight' spots?

"Indeed the proper balance is clearly shown in the fact that Apollo is the twin brother of the moon goddess Artemis. They were both children of Leto, the ever mild and gracious granddaughter of Ouranos and Gaia, whose father had been the Titan Koios, whose name, Kerenyi records, means the sphere of the heavens, and who was also called Polos, referring to the celestial polar axis. Leto's mother was Phoibe, the goddess of the moon, whose name meant 'purifying one'. It is from her that Apollo was later sometimes to be called Phoebus Apollo." [Extract from the book by G. Knight].

According to the standard theory of correspondences, these are microcosmically attuned {metaphorically speaking or should that be metaphysically speaking?} - to the energies of the Seven Planets.

From a different perspective: ''My thesis is that the language of poetic myth anciently current in the Mediterranean and Northern Europe was a' magical' language bound up with popular religious ceremonies in honour of the moon goddess, or muse, some of them dating from the Old Stone Age, and that this remains the language of TRUE poetry..."

A {practical?} example {the very first one?}: "Mercury, the planet closest to the sun, is visible to the naked eye at dawn or dusk for less than two hours , for only short periods during the year. As bright as a first magnitude star, the planet never rises far above the horizon and is easily obscured by low cloud or mist, making it difficult to find. Copernicus is reputed never to have seen it from his observatory in Frauenburg in Poland {hint, hint?}. Phoebus Apollo has been associated with light, and as Mercury in the morning skies {'evening' one represented with Hermes} he heralds dawn and the rising sun. Later mythology associates Apollo with the sun, but in Homer the god has, for a number of reasons, been linked to the planet Mercury when it is seen before the sun rises. In Book 10, during the night raid on the Trojan lines Apollo wakens the Thracian Hippocoon shortly before dawn, the time when Mercury can be seen. Apollo is another supporter of the Trojans and their allies, and as Mercury he champions them as the planet travels through the zodiac. With Mercury above Orion, perhaps in Taurus, Apollo is said by Homer to be aiding Hector in his clashes with..." ['Homer Secret Iliad'].

"The chariot or car might be considered indeed a moving equivalent of the 'Throne of God'. It is drawn by a {unimaginable? i.e.,figuratively speaking} beast, described as a red and white griffin with golden wings arching so high that their extremities cannot be seen. As for the carriage, around one of its wheels, three maidens are dancing an intricate measure. One in red, as fire, one green as an emerald, and one white as new fallen snow. About the other wheel are four maidens clad in royal purple, their leader possessing a 'third' eye. Although common thought regards these figures as an allegory of the three Virtues and four Cardinal Virtues, there is a much deeper esoteric meaning. They represent the feminine expression of the seven rays which are the inner dynamics of the universe, which in the heavens are associated with the Pleiades. Following the {car?} and the seven dancing maidens are seven aged men {elder link?}...counterparts of the seven maidens, which in esoteric stellar symbolism equates them with the seven 'rishes' of the Great Bear. Instead of garlands of lilies about their heads as with the maidens, their brows are wreathed in red roses...The 'pointers' of the Great Bear are alluded to in esoteric astrology as major stars of direction. The one nearest to the Pole Star {Dubhe} is a focus of the expression of the will of the individual; the one further from the Pole Star {Merak} is a focus of a reservoir of the energy of Divine purpose, or the 'will of god'...Dubhe is the 'pointer' for mankind on the path of the 'involution' of consciousness {top/down?} - seeking expression in manifestation {'known' quantity?}. Merak comes into play in guiding the achieved human being {bottom/up?} - into discipleship under the 'planetary hierarchy'. And the pattern for this 'planetary hierarchy' is to be found in the great star of Isis, Sirius, the dog star, in Canis Major." [Extract from the book 'Rose Cross and the Goddess'.

"The Sorting Hat was a sentient magical hat at Hogwarts that was used to determine which of the four school Houses was the best fit for each new student. These four Houses were Gryffindor, the house of bravery, Hufflepuff, the house of hard work, Ravenclaw, the house of intelligence, and Slytherin, the house of ambition. The Sorting Hat originally belonged to Godric Gryffindor, one of the four founders of Hogwarts. It was normally kept in the Headmaster's office until it was needed for the Sorting Ceremony at the annual Start-of-Term Feast."

Face to face? With what?

"The Sword of Gryffindor was made in the 10th century by goblins, the magical world's most skilled metalworkers, and was therefore enchanted. Fashioned from pure silver, it was inset with rubies, the stone that represented Gryffindor in the hour-glasses that counted the House points at Hogwarts. Godric Gryffindor's name was engraved just beneath the hilt.[1]

Overhang?

The sword was made to Godric Gryffindor's specifications by Ragnuk the First, finest of the goblin silversmiths, and therefore King (in goblin culture, the ruler did not work less than the others, but more skillfully). When it was finished, Ragnuk coveted it so much that he pretended that Gryffindor had stolen it from him, and sent minions to steal it back.[1]

Gryffindor defended himself with his wand, but did not kill his attackers. Instead he sent them back to their king bewitched, to deliver the threat that if he ever tried to steal from Gryffindor again, Gryffindor would unsheathe the sword against them all. The goblin king took the threat seriously and left Gryffindor in possession of his rightful property, but remained resentful until he died."

'Scabbard'.

"A portrait of Gryffindor {'griffin'} hung at Hogwarts Castle guarded a secret short cut between the seventh-floor landing of the Grand Staircase and the Entrance Hall side room {'eight'?}. The password required to gain access to said shortcut was Starshine.[9] Gryffindor left two known relics: a goblin-made sword (adorned with rubies) and the Sorting Hat. The two items share a particular bond; whenever a "true Gryffindor" needs it, the Sword will let itself be pulled out of the hat.

And/or: '''Child' and lotus alike begin in the dark depths....they emerge as the luminous image of the 'redolent flower, the soul of Ra'. The god is not the flower itself, but manifest within the flower is the force {'god'} that drives the flower. Likewise 'God' manifests in human form, in babe, in lotus, in Nerfertem. The Pyramid Text of Unas declares: 'It is Unas {as} the flowers that have sprung from pure earth....Unas gleams as Nefertem, as the lotus at the nostril {nose} of Ra.'  Ra, the NEW sun, is Nefertem, the child emergent at dawn after his death in the west and his twelve hour passage through the dark underworld of the Duat...He becomes Aufu-Ra, literally the flesh made of light...represented with the winged beetle Kheperi.

And/or: "Archaeologists in Egypt have discovered two mummies outfitted with golden tongues at the ancient town of Oxyrhynchus, bringing the total number of golden tongues found at the location to sixteen, archaeologists say. During the Roman period (29 B.C. to A.D. 641), the Egyptians put golden tongues inside the mouths of some mummies so that the mummy would be able to use their tongue in the afterlife and because the ancient Egyptians believed that gold was the "flesh of the gods," Esther Pons Mellado and Maite Mascort, co-directors of the archaeological mission of Oxyrhynchus, told Live Science in an email. Mummies with gold tongues were thought to have the ability to speak with Osiris in the underworld of the afterlife.

The mummies with the gold tongues were found within two Roman period tombs that contained additional mummies, along with papyri that has Greek writing and mud seals that contain Egyptian iconography, Pons Mellado and Mascort said. ....In total, they found more than 30 mummies placed in colorful cartonnage (plastered layers of papyrus or fiber) and several terra-cotta figurines depicting Isis Aphrodite, a deity that combined Isis, an Egyptian goddess associated with healing and magic, and Aphrodite, a Greek goddess associated with beauty.

Nearby the two Roman tombs, the team unearthed three hypogea, or underground burial chambers carved into the natural rock. There, they found nine sarcophagi, two of which remained closed despite the prevalence of grave robbers throughout history.

A number of other fascinating objects were uncovered at this second site, including terra cotta statues depicting the hybrid goddess Isis-Aphrodite — a combination of the Egyptian and Greek deities. Archaeologists also found stone blocks with depictions of various animals, plants, and clusters of grapes."

''The name gin is a shortened form of the older English word genever,[3] related to the French word genièvre and the Dutch word jenever.

It then became an object of commerce in the spirits industry.''

She is the great Devi, the mother of the universe who as the Life Force resides in mans body in its lowest center at the base of the 'spine' just as Siva is 'realized' in the highest brain center - the cerebrum or Sahasrara-Padma.

How simple yet profound. Understand that {basic?} principle to decipher the CORE ESSENCE of all esoteric literature.

'On Having No Head: Zen and the Rediscovery of the Obvious' / D. E. Harding.

Refresher: "By ''Spirit'' we mean the Life-Power. A glance at your dictionary will show you that ''spirit'' is derived from the Latin Spiritus, whose root meaning is breath. Closely akin to the Latin noun are the Greek 'Pneuma', the Hebrew 'Ruach' and the Sanskrit 'Prana'. Each of these nouns signifies both ''breath'' and ''life''.....Philosophers have always attributed a 'mental quality' to this principle." [P. F. Case. Vol 1].

A working example {i.e.,from one perspective}: ''In the Ageless Wisdom there has always been the knowledge that the Life-Breath presents itself to human consciousness in a five-fold manner. The Great Breath {in the Hindu tradition} gives to Prakriti {the substance aspect of Being} five sorts of elementary extention. The first and most important of these is the Akasha Tattva..."

Something extra: "Saturn is really a combination of the three primary colours {i.e.,red/yellow/blue} - and has ''close affinities to Akasha''. The corresponding metal is 'lead'; the chakra, the Muladhara, the basic lows of the Yogis, identified with the sacred plexus. Here the fiery power of the Kundalini, the serpent force, is said to be coiled or latent, and that latency is an example of the limiting influence of Saturn. That influence is at work in the physical functions governed by the sacral plexus {i.e., thigh and leg related}. [Page 26/65 'Occult Fundamentals and Spiritual Unfoldment'. Vol 1].

In descriptions of the tombs of the Jewish nobility, the pyramid shape is also emphasized as the mark of a tomb {Herod?}. This would imply that nefesh and pyramid were synonymous. The Jewish tombs in the Kidron Valley are the best examples of this form of nefesh. They appear as a rectangular, pyramid-capped monument. Similar forms of the nefesh decorate ossuaries, with the addition of a dome-capped column. In Jerusalem the nefesh as a tomb monument stood either above or beside the tomb; set on steps or on a base.'' [Wiki].

From a different perspective: ''A memory palace, or “method of loci,” was at first mainly used to memorize speeches (the most important part of a Greek or Roman citizen’s public life). To make one, you picture a multiroomed building (it’s easiest if it’s somewhere familiar, like your family home), and place symbols of each point you want to make in each room. If you want to start out talking about crop yields, you might imagine bags of grain in the foyer, then a fierce bandit in the next room if you want to move on from there to declaim on law and order. Typically, though, the symbols used were strange and striking, weird allegorical and pagan figures filled with hidden meanings that overflowed into the art of late antiquity and the Middle Ages. Yates argues that such devices as the Seven Deadly Sins and the structure of hell, purgatory, and heaven in Dante’s Divine Comedy are mnemonic icons and systems that had become infused with mystical import....

.....Very skilled practitioners of such methods can use them to remember astounding amounts of information—and do so to this day, as Joshua Foer recounts in his 2011 book Moonwalking With Einstein, about his foray into the world of competitive memorization. But as the centuries passed, the art of memory became more than just a tool for many of its practitioners. Yates writes of Giulio Camillo’s “memory theater,” a concept that expressed the metaphysical and supernatural beliefs with which the memory arts had become saturated during the Middle Ages. Instead of moving through the architectural space of a palace, in the memory theater, the “audience,” which consists of one person, stands still in the exact center. The viewer looks out upon a tiered auditorium of rigidly ordered symbols and cues designed to call forth absolutely everything he has ever known—and perhaps even more. (You can see a video of a 3-D rendering of Camillo’s theater here.) To master such complete memory device would be to approach divinity.'' ['Slate Magazine' / 2015].

Melissa: a 'Tipping Point' contestant. The luckiest lass on the planet. Lucky 'spotted' leopard skin?

''Melissa is a genus of perennial herbs in the Lamiaceae, native to Europe and Asia but cultivated and naturalized in many other places.[1][2][3][4] The name Melissa is derived from the Greek word μέλισσα (mélissa) meaning "honeybee", owing to the abundance of nectar in the flowers. The stems are square, like most other plants in the mint family. The leaves are borne in opposite pairs on the stems, and are usually ovate or heart-shaped and emit a lemony scent when bruised. Axillary spikes of white or yellowish flowers appear in the summer.

The most commonly grown species of this genus is Melissa officinalis, commonly known in the United States as lemon balm,[5] and as balm in England.''

Carbuncles?

''A bruise, also called a contusion (pronounced: kun-TOO-zhen), happens when a part of the body is injured and blood from the damaged capillaries (small blood vessels) leaks out. With no place to go, the blood gets trapped under the skin, forming a red or purplish mark that's tender when you touch it — a bruise.''

Persephone, now in her later years, was so incensed with jealousy that she turned Minthe into a mint plant.''

And/or: ''St Clement Danes is an Anglican church in the City of Westminster, London. It is situated outside the Royal Courts of Justice on the Strand. Although the first church on the site was reputedly founded in the 9th century by the Danes, the current building was completed in 1682 by Sir Christopher Wren. Wren's building was gutted during the Blitz and not restored until 1958, when it was adapted to its current function as the central church of the Royal Air Force.

The church is sometimes claimed to be the one featured in the nursery rhyme "Oranges and Lemons" and the bells do indeed play that tune every day at 9 am, noon, 3pm and 6pm—as reported in 1940 the church's playing of the tune was interrupted during World War II due to Nazi bombing.[3] However, St Clement's Eastcheap, in the City of London, also claims to be the church from the rhyme. St Clement Danes is known as one of the two 'Island Churches', the other being St Mary-le-Strand.''

Continued: "Other traditions should be mentioned that show evidence of the connection between ancient sea, feminine, stellar and underworld powers. Leto had a sister Asteria, which means Star goddess, and who was the mother of another moon goddess, Hecate, closely related to Artemis. After Zeus had fathered Apollo and Artemis on Leto he had 'pursued' her sister Asteria, who escaped him by turning into a stone and falling into the depths of the sea - { recall Cronus who swallowed a stone. One relates more to the shadow aspect than the anima - as a means to an understanding}. She emerged as an island on which Leto could give birth to her twins. This is usually identified as Delos which also had the tradition of having once been a floating island, an ocean wanderer hidden from the eyes of men, {shadow aspect and/or Khonsu?}.

Side note: ''Lions were seen as symbolic guardians in ancient Greece....The best known Greek lions guarded not just a single tomb but an entire sanctuary - on the Aegean island of Delos. The twin deities Artemis and Apollo - goddess of the hunt, childbirth and chastity, and god of the sun, music and prophecy - were said to be born on Delos. Major cult centers of their mother Leto, and the god of wine and theatre, Dionysus, were also located there. To reach the sanctuary, a visitor had to cross an area called the Terrace of the Lions where as many as sixteen snarling marble felines - facing east toward the Sacred Lake, where Leto gave birth to the twins - marked their path.''

There is a certain alchemical element about the descriptions of rejoicing {'joy'?} when Leto eventually gave birth on Delos. All the 'gods' rejoiced, the former rocky and barren outcrop became fruitful, singing swans circled the island becoming mute after the seventh time {walls of Jericho?}, nymphs {Pleiades?} sang a sacred birthing song, the foundations of the island turned to gold, as did the waters of its river and circular lake, and also the leaves of its olive trees.

Question 2. Does this explain why the supernova - of 1054 ........was not mentioned in historical records - in Europe - when they occurred in the NORTHERN HEMISPHERE? Only mentioned in the EAST.

They had to occur in the Southern Hemisphere?

And/or: ''The mystery of the supernova that created the Cassiopeia A supernova remnant may have found a solution in the story of a daylight star seen at the time of the birth of King Charles II in 1630, astronomer Martin Lunn and historian Dr Lila Rakoczy have suggested at the Royal Astronomical Society’s National Astronomy Meeting in Llandudno, Wales....It is estimated that a supernova explodes in our Milky Way Galaxy once every fifty to a hundred years, but the last galactic supernova to be seen was Kepler’s supernova in 1604. This poses a conundrum....So how is it that royal historians noted the appearance of a star bright enough to be seen in broad daylight but astronomers of that era (not to mention astrologers) did not? All of Cassiopeia is circumpolar from England's latitude, so it surely should have been obvious in the nighttime sky. Moreover, could the dating of the Cas A supernova really be off by more than 10%?...

Lunn came across historical records from 1660 that describe how, in 1630 when the future king Charles II was born, a daylight star was seen in the midday sky with the Sun. He teamed up with historian Rakoczy, who also found references to the star in seventeenth century literature, including poems by the astronomer John Bainbridge. But if this ‘noon star’ was the supernova that created Cassiopeia A, 11,000 light years away in the constellation of Cassiopeia, why wasn’t it more widely seen? A type IIb supernova, which is the core collapse of a massive star, would only have been bright enough to have been seen in daylight for a week at most, says Lunn. A few cloudy days and nights and it may not have been widely noticed. However, now that historians and astronomers know what to look for, other evidence for a 1630 supernova may come to light....“The number and variety of sources that refer to the new star strongly suggest that an astronomical event really did take place,” says Lunn. “Our work raises questions about the current method for dating supernovae, but leads to the exciting possibility of solving a decades-old astronomical puzzle.....I suspect we haven't heard the last of this story!''

According to his essay "A Chapter on Dreams" (Scribner's, Jan. 1888), he racked his brains for an idea for a story and had a dream, and upon waking had the idea for two or three scenes that would appear in the story Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Biographer Graham Balfour quoted Stevenson's wife, Fanny Stevenson: In the small hours of one morning,[...] I was awakened by cries of horror from Louis. Thinking he had a nightmare, I awakened him. He said angrily: "Why did you wake me? I was dreaming a fine bogey tale." I had awakened him at the first transformation scene."

And/or: "The sign Libra represents the seventh day on which the Lord rested. A day constitutes a period of time as is expressed in the words “Lincoln’s day” or “Wilson’s day,” etc. In Genesis (meaning generation, the forming of the child in utero) we note that the Creator was busily engaged in the work of forming the seven vital organs. When this was accomplished, the Lord ceased from creating, for the organs were thus co-ordinated, and, as seven parts of a machine, were prepared to perform all the functions required of them. The Sun, resurrected as the Lamb of God in Aries at the Spring equinox , or Easter, after passing through the various stages of growth and fecundity, now prepares to go down (in the West) into the darkness and coldness of winter, for heat is withdrawn into the earth. The earth herself must regain her balance, which virtually represents the beginning and the end of labor. Thus we have Sunday, the seventh day, or day of REST.

The full Moon at this period of the year is of special importance, for its effect on wild life of the forest is very remarkable. It is said that under the influence of this harmonizing or balancing Moon, animals that are natural enemies will play together or pass by without conflict. They resume their warfare when its influence wanes.

Venus (the ruler of Libra) was said by the ancients to have arisen from the foam of the sea at the time of the wounding of Uranus. As the latter is the ruler of the sign of the Son of Man, it should be obvious what is meant by his “wounding.”  [Page 189 'The Zodiac and the salts of Salvation' / G. Carey + I. Perry].

''In the Southern Hemisphere, the Southern Cross is frequently used for navigation in much the same way that Polaris is used in the Northern Hemisphere. Projecting a line from γ to α Crucis (the foot of the crucifix) approximately 4+12 times beyond gives a point close to the Southern Celestial Pole[3] which is also, coincidentally, where intersects a perpendicular line taken southwards from the east-west axis of Alpha Centauri to Beta Centauri, which are stars at an alike declination to Crux and of a similar width as the cross, but higher magnitude.[21] Argentine gauchos are documented as using Crux for night orientation in the Pampas and Patagonia.

Upside down in the Northern Hemisphere. As Orion is in the Southern one.

Alpha and Beta Centauri are of similar declinations (thus distance from the pole) and are often referred as the "Southern Pointers" or just "The Pointers", allowing people to easily identify the Southern Cross, the constellation of Crux. Very few bright stars lie between Crux and the pole itself, although the constellation Musca is fairly easily recognised immediately south of Crux.

Fire AND water. Which and why?

Crux is bordered by the constellations Centaurus (which surrounds it on three sides) on the east, north and west, and Musca to the south. Covering 68 square degrees and 0.165% of the night sky, it is the smallest of the 88 constellations.[15] The three-letter abbreviation for the constellation, as adopted by the International Astronomical Union in 1922, is "Cru".[16] The official constellation boundaries, as set by Belgian astronomer Eugène Delporte in 1930, are defined by a polygon of four segments. In the equatorial coordinate system, the right ascension coordinates of these borders lie between 11h 56.13m and 12h 57.45m , while the declination coordinates are between −55.68° and −64.70°.[17] Its totality figures at least part of the year south of the 25th parallel north.

''Twentyfive''.

"At its southern end is the magnitude 0.5 star Achernar, designated Alpha Eridani. It is a blue-white hued main sequence star 144 light-years from Earth, whose traditional name means "the river's end".[1] Achernar is a very peculiar star because it is one of the flattest stars known. Observations indicate that its radius is about 50% larger at the equator than at the poles. This distortion occurs because the star is spinning extremely rapidly."

In tropical regions Crux can be seen in the sky from April to June. Crux is exactly opposite to Cassiopeia on the celestial sphere, and therefore it cannot appear in the sky with the latter at the same time. In this era, south of Cape Town, Adelaide, and Buenos Aires (the 34th parallel south), Crux is circumpolar and thus always appears in the sky. Crux is easily visible from the southern hemisphere, south of 35th parallel at practically any time of year as circumpolar. It is also visible near the horizon from tropical latitudes of the northern hemisphere for a few hours every night during the northern winter and spring.

'Thirtyfive'.

''Crux (/krʌks/) is a constellation of the southern sky that is centred on four bright stars in a cross-shaped asterism commonly known as the Southern Cross. It lies on the southern end of the Milky Way's visible band. The name Crux is Latin for cross. Even though it is the smallest of all 88 modern constellations, Crux is among the most easily distinguished as its four main stars each have an apparent visual magnitude brighter than +2.8. It has attained a high level of cultural significance in many Southern Hemisphere states and nations....Many of these brighter stars are members of the Scorpius–Centaurus association, a large but loose group of hot blue-white stars that appear to share common origins and motion across the southern Milky Way.

Division?

Multiplication?

Crux contains four Cepheid variables, each visible to the naked eye under optimum conditions. Crux also contains the bright and colourful open cluster known as the Jewel Box (NGC 4755) on its eastern border {'Coptos'?}. Nearby to the southeast is a large dark nebula spanning 7° by 5° known as the Coalsack Nebula, portions of which are mapped in the neighbouring constellations of Centaurus and Musca....The bright stars in Crux were known to the Ancient Greeks, where Ptolemy regarded them as part of the constellation Centaurus.[1][2] They were entirely visible as far north as Britain in the fourth millennium BC. However, the precession of the equinoxes gradually lowered the stars below the European horizon, and they were eventually forgotten by the inhabitants of northern latitudes.[3] By 400 CE, the stars in the constellation now called Crux never rose above the horizon throughout most of Europe. Dante may have known about the constellation in the 14th century, as he describes an asterism of four bright stars in the southern sky in his Divine Comedy.[4][5] His description, however, may be allegorical, and the similarity to the constellation a coincidence....The 15th century Venetian navigator Alvise Cadamosto made note of what was probably the Southern Cross on exiting the Gambia River in 1455, calling it the carro dell'ostro ("southern chariot").

Musca: De Houtman included it in his southern star catalogue in 1598 under the Dutch name De Vlieghe, "The Fly".[2] They assigned four stars to the constellation, with a star that would be later designated as Beta Muscae marking the head, Gamma the body, and Alpha and Delta the left and right wings, respectively.[3] It first appeared on a 35-cm-diameter (14-in) celestial globe published in 1598 in Amsterdam by Plancius with Jodocus Hondius, though was unnamed.[4] The first depiction of this constellation in a celestial atlas was in the German cartographer Johann Bayer's Uranometria of 1603,[5] though Bayer termed it Apis— "the Bee", a name by which it was known for the next two centuries. A 1603 celestial globe by Willem Blaeu depicts it as providing nourishment for the nearby constellation Chamaeleon—its tongue trying to catch the insect.''

Mensa is a constellation in the Southern Celestial Hemisphere near the south celestial pole, one of fourteen constellations drawn up in the 18th century by French astronomer Nicolas-Louis de Lacaille. Its name is Latin for table, though it originally commemorated Table Mountain and was known as "Mons Mensae". One of the eighty-eight constellations designated by the International Astronomical Union (IAU), it covers a keystone-shaped wedge of sky - onehundred and fiftythree {153.5} square degrees in area. Other than the south polar constellation of Octans, it is the most southerly of constellations and is observable only south of the 5th parallel of the Northern Hemisphere.

Seated on what? Any minerals near by? Dappled sunlight as opposed to {say} shadows of a cave?

One of the faintest constellations in the night sky, Mensa contains no apparently bright stars—the brightest, Alpha Mensae, is barely visible in suburban skies. Part of the Large Magellanic Cloud, several star clusters and a quasar lie in the area covered by the constellation, and at least three of its star systems have been found to have exoplanets. Although the stars of Mensa do not feature in any ancient mythology, the mountain it is named after has a rich mythology. Called "Tafelberg" in Dutch and German, it has two neighboring mountains called "Devil's Peak" and "Lion's Head". Table Mountain features in the mythology of the Cape of Good Hope, notorious for its storms. Explorer Bartolomeu Dias saw the mountain as a mythical anvil for storms. The three-letter abbreviation for the constellation, as adopted by the IAU in 1922, is "Men".[6] The official constellation boundaries, as set by Belgian astronomer Eugène Delporte in 1930, are defined by a polygon of eight segments.''

And/or: ''Table Mountain in Cape Town is one of the world’s most recognised and iconic mountains. Rising 1000 metres (3500 feet) out of the Atlantic Ocean, with a 3-kilometre (1,8 mile) flat top, it overlooks Table Bay (in which Robben Island is situated). One of the surprising aspects of the mountain is that it faces north. Most people unfamiliar with the area believe, since it is nearly at the southern tip of Africa, that it faces south. Looking at Table Mountain from the bay, on the right there is Signal Hill (where at noon every day a cannon fires to signal the time) and Lions Head, so named because from some angles it looks like a male lion crouching. On the left is Devil’s Peak, higher than Lion’s Head, but not as high as Table Mountain. Running back from Table Mountain to Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope is a range of mountains known as the Twelve Apostles rising steeply out of the sea.

Above or below?

Despite its very rocky disposition, the Table Mountain area is home to over 2200 plant species, more than that of the United Kingdom. The National Botanical Garden, Kirstenbosch, lies on the side of Table Mountain....One of the amazing things about Table Mountain is that one minute it can be standing proudly with clear blue sky above it, and the next minute a layer of cloud can pour over the top, giving the impression of a dynamic tablecloth.

A weatherman will tell you that the tablecloth is formed when a south-easterly wind blows up against the mountain, lifting moist air abruptly, cooling it rapidly, causing condensation. When these orographic clouds (as they are called) reach the edge of the mountain on the other side, they descend and warm up, and the cloud disappears.

The San peoples who inhabited the area long before any Europeans or Blacks arrived called Table Mountain Camissa – the place of sweet water – and attributed the tablecloth to their mantis god smothering a fire with a kaross, which is any animal hide, usually a sheep’s, with its hair left on. This is certainly an appealing explanation, and I can see a San family clustered around a fire, listening to grandpa {or 'grandmother'?} telling the story of why the cloud appears and disappears.

It is a town (around 1900 with 1000 inhabitants), at the end of a little peninsula north-east of Alexandria. It has a trade in quails, which are caught in nets hung along the shore. Off Aboukir on 1 August 1798, the French Mediterranean fleet was destroyed within the roads by British Admiral Horatio Nelson. On 25 July 1799, Napoleon Bonaparte destroyed there a Turkish army 18,000 strong; and on 8 March 1801, the French garrison of 1,800 men was defeated by 20,000 English and Ottoman Turks commanded by Abercromby''

And/or: ''The name of Canopus appears in the first half of the 6th century BC in a poem by Solon.[9] Early Egyptological excavations some 2 or 3 km from the area known today as Abu Qir have revealed extensive traces of the city with its quays, and granite monuments with the name of Ramesses II, but they may have been brought in for the adornment of the place at a later date. The exact date of the foundation of Canopus is unknown, but Herodotus refers to it as an ancient port. Homeric myth claims that it was founded by Menelaus, and named after Canopus, the pilot of his ship, who died there after being bitten by a serpent.[n 1] Legend describes how Menelaus built a monument to his memory on the shore, around which the town later grew up. There is unlikely to be any connection with "canopy". A temple to Osiris was built by king Ptolemy III Euergetes, but according to Herodotus, very near to Canopus was an older shrine, a temple of Heracles that served as an asylum for fugitive slaves. Osiris was worshipped at Canopus under a peculiar form: that of a vase with a human head. Through an old misunderstanding, the name "canopic jars" was applied by early Egyptologists to the vases with human and animal heads in which the internal organs were placed by the Egyptians after embalming.''

Continued: ''The mistranslation of pithos is usually attributed to the 16th-century humanist Erasmus who, in his Latin account of the story of Pandora, changed the Greek pithos to pyxis, meaning "box".[12] The context in which the story appeared was Erasmus' collection of proverbs, the Adagia (1508), in illustration of the Latin saying Malo accepto stultus sapit (from experiencing trouble a fool is made wise). In his version the box is opened by Epimetheus, whose name means 'Afterthought' – or as Hesiod comments, "he whom mistakes made wise".

He went out one day to angle with Cleopatra, and, being so unfortunate as to catch nothing in the presence of his mistress, he gave secret orders to the fishermen to dive under the water, and put fishes that had been already taken upon his hooks; and these he drew so fast that the Egyptian perceived it. But, feigning great admiration, she told everybody how dexterous Antony was, and invited them next day to come and see him again. So, when a number of them had come on board the fishing-boats, as soon as he had let down his hook, one of her servants was beforehand with his divers and fixed upon his hook a salted fish from Pontus. Antony, feeling his line give, drew up the prey, and when, as may be imagined, great laughter ensued, "Leave," said Cleopatra, "the fishing-rod, general, to us poor sovereigns of Pharos and Canopus; your game is cities, provinces, and kingdoms."['Life of Anthony' by Plutarch].

AND/OR: This Stone has a bright glittering: it contains a Spirit of a sublime original; it is the Sea of the Wise, in which they angle for their mysterious Fish.

“Their mysterious Fish”! What an intriguing expression! It has its correspondences in the spermatozoon swimming in the seminal sea; in the foetus bathed in the intra-uterine amniotic fluid. It symbolizes the possibility of life, points to the realm of the future and great promise, and belongs to that class of eloquent symbols depicting rebirth and regeneration. In this connection there is an interesting illustration in The Book of Lambspring, one of the several books of the Hermetic Museum translated by Waite. It shows two fish swimming in a sea. Over the illustration we read “Be warned and understand truly that two fishes are swimming in our Sea. The Sea is the body, the two fishes are Soul and Spirit”. ['The Philosophers Stone'].

And/or: ''Pharos was a small island located on the western edge of the Nile Delta. In 332 BC Alexander the Great founded the city of Alexandria on an isthmus opposite Pharos. Alexandria and Pharos were later connected by a mole[6] spanning more than 1,200 metres (0.75 miles), which was called the Heptastadion ("seven stadia"—a stadion was a Greek unit of length measuring approximately 180 m). The etymology of “Pharos” is uncertain. The word became generalized in modern Greek (φάρος ‘fáros’), and was loaned into Spanish (‘faro’).

The east side of the mole became the Great Harbour, now an open bay; on the west side lay the port of Eunostos, with its inner basin Kibotos now vastly enlarged to form the modern harbour. Today's city development lying between the present Grand Square and the modern Ras el-Tin quarter is built on the silt which gradually widened and obliterated this mole. The Ras el-Tin promontory, where Ras el-Tin Palace was built in the 19th century, represents all that is left of the island of Pharos, the site of the lighthouse at its eastern point having been weathered away by the sea.''

What would his mother think? What about the father? Was he really a Russian?

From a different perspective: ''The general sterility of the Russian spirit prevents showing itself in its reality. It is in the realm of creative imagination where we will find its clearest expression i.e., the three ancient sanctuaries of the Slav religion: One of these was in Arkona, on the island of Rugen in the Baltic near Rostock, East Germany. It was on a promontory facing the sea.The temple was made of wood of ''exquisite craftmanship'' - it had a red roof, square in shape like the Zarathustra fire altars. Another of these sanctuaries was in KIEV....on the high west bank of the river Dnieper. The 3rd was at Novgorod....situated on a promontory {peninsula?} formed by the bank of the Volkhov river and Lake Ilmen, from which the river flows. The design of the sanctuary resembles an eight petalled flower.'' [Page 94 'Russia, Past, Present and Future'].

Divine protection?

''A long time ago, when most Russians were illiterate, they invented thousands of fairy tales that were handed down from generation to generation. Listening to fairy tales was a favorite pastime not only for children, but for adults too, who gathered together in the evenings to listen to a good yarn while weaving bark shoes or doing other work. These stories were morality tales inspired by everyday life, fables about animals and about fantastic creatures that lived in forests, rivers and swamps, or fairy tales about princesses and princes. It was these fairy tales that shaped the character of the Russian people and ensured its cultural continuity.''

Analogy: "What is the relation of Caer Sidi to Caer Arianrhod? Were they the same place? I think not, because Caer Sidi had been identified with Puffin Island off the coast of Anglesey and with Lundy Island in the Severn: both of them island Elysiums of the usual type. A clue to the problem is that though Caer Sidi, or Caer Sidin, means 'Revolving Castle' {transcendent third?} in Welsh, and though revolving islands are common in Welsh and Irish legend, the word 'Sidi' is apparently a translation of the Goidelic word Sidhe, a round barrow fortress {'flat top'?} belonging to the Aes Sidhe {Sidhe, for short}, the prime 'magicians' of Ireland.

Side note: "Etymology: According to Eustathius of Thessalonica[13] the word Elysium (Ἠλύσιον) derives from ἀλυουσας (ἀλύω, to be deeply stirred from joy)[14] or from ἀλύτως, synonymous of ἀφθάρτως (ἄφθαρτος, incorruptible),[15] referring to souls' life in this place. Another suggestion is from ελυθ-, ἔρχομαι (to come).[16]

The Greek poet Hesiod refers to the "Isles of the Blest" in his didactic poem Works and Days. In his book Greek Religion, Walter Burkert notes the connection with the motif of far-off Dilmun: "Thus Achilles is transported to the White Isle and becomes the Ruler of the Black Sea, and Diomedes becomes the divine lord of an Adriatic island".[11]

And they live untouched by sorrow in the islands of the blessed along the shore of deep-swirling Ocean, happy heroes for whom the grain-giving earth bears honey-sweet fruit flourishing thrice a year, far from the deathless gods, and Cronos rules over them."

AND/OR: CRONOS rules the lost Golden Age - a timeless era which corresponds to the Otherworldly dimension: his very name means 'time'. Zeus stops time by anchoring his father in the cave of sleep, but father and son still interact, according to Plutarch. Cronos's companions are said to give forth utterances of prophetic power: the things which Zeus premediates, Cronos dreams. ;'Mabon and the Mysteries of Britain' / C. Matthews].

Minerva protecting Peace from Mars or Peace and War is a painting by Peter Paul Rubens. He produced it in London between 1629 and 1630, during a diplomatic mission from the Spanish Netherlands to Charles I of England. It is now in the National Gallery, London.[1]

AND/OR: Conscious conflict, however, has another value, quite apart from the superficial fact that a conscious conflict can consciously be dealt with. Our text appears to encourage conflict when, however, it is cultivated deliberately and with full intent in order to hasten the cessation of its activity. Then follows a new birth and production of an integrated attitude which appertains to neither element of the conflict. What possibly is a more accurate expression is not that conflict is encouraged consciously or otherwise, but that analysis and meditation increase the perception of the presence of the conflict so that the true extent of the internecine warfare waging within is fully realized. Jung has described at some length in Psychological Types the phenomenon whereby the conflict between the pairs of opposites when becoming too acute to be borne, causes consciousness of them to undergo an eclipse. A third or higher reconciling point of view spontaneously comes to birth and is the outcome of surmounting or growing out of a psychic position which is untenable and unendurable....

Clearly the attainment spells the eclipse of the Dragon. Where light shines no darkness can there abide. For being the basis of the instinctual life, harnessed and chained to the needs and clearly perceived ideals of the psyche, the dragon shuns the sunbeams and the daylight. No longer do its projections and compulsive automatisms haunt the light of consciousness. No longer is the personality tortured as by some foul and evil presence. Its needs and dictates, once so imperious, cease their urgency, finding their proper place within the natural economy. ['The Philosophers Stone' / I. Regardie].

And/or: ''It may well be that the story of the forgiveness of Zeus {towards Prometheus}, was created more to promote Zeus as a {now} god of forgiveness and wisdom than to rehabilitate the reputation of Prometheus.

If you ever needed convincing that we live in a solar system on a rock orbiting around the sun with other balls of rock - then look at that! {eclipse of the sun - seen at Varanasi : 'It's the one place on the Ganges where you can bathe in the river on this shore while seeing the sunrise on the eastern shore. The only place where the Ganges turns around to the north....The ancient Indians knew it as The Solar City'}. That's the solar system coming down and grabbing you by the throat....One of the most interesting things about gravity is that it is weak, so weak that i can lift my hand up off the ground when there's a whole planet pulling it down....Its tremendously weak. But its additive. It only adds. There's no negative gravity, like with electricity {'137'?} - with positive and negative that eventually cancels each other out. And so, because gravity is only additive and only attractive - when there's enough mass of a rock for gravity to work upon - it will dominate. It forms and sculpts sphere's as it exerts it's pressure equally in all directions....Gravity is the sculptor of the universe." ['Brian Cox's Adventures in Spacetime' / S1 EP3].

"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."

"Varanasi (VārāṇasīHindi: [ʋaːˈraːɳəsi] ;[a] also BenaresBanaras (Banāras [bəˈnaːrəs] )[13][14][15] or Kashi (Kāshi [kˈæʃi] )[16]) is a city on the Ganges river in northern India that has a central place in the traditions of pilgrimage, death, and mourning in the Hindu world.[17][b] The city has a syncretic tradition of Muslim artisanship that underpins its religious tourism.[20] Located in the middle-Ganges valley in the southeastern part of the state of Uttar Pradesh, Varanasi lies on the left bank of the river. It is 692 kilometres (430 mi) to the southeast of India's capital New Delhi and 320 kilometres (200 mi) to the southeast of the state capital, Lucknow. It lies 121 kilometres (75 mi) downstream of Prayagraj, where the confluence with the Yamuna river is another major Hindu pilgrimage site.

Varanasi, the centre of the Bhojpuri cultural region is one of the world's oldest continually inhabited cities.[21][22][23] Kashi, its ancient name, was associated with a kingdom of the same name of 2,500 years ago. The Lion capital of Ashoka at nearby Sarnath has been interpreted to be a commemoration of the Buddha's first sermon there in the fifth century BCE..."

Refresher: "The turning around of the light is the 'firing process'...." [Page 17 'The Secret of the Golden Flower' / T. Cleary].

''The whole work of 'turning the light around' uses the method of reversal. The 'beauties' of the highest heavens and the marvels of the sublimest realms are all within the heart: this is where the perfectly open and aware spirit concentrates. Confucians call it the open center {Amarna?}, Buddhists call it the pedestal of awareness {'horizon'?}, Taoists call it the ancestral earth, the yellow court {'sand'?}, the mysterious pass {'Place of Rowing'?}, the primal opening. The celestial mind is like a house; the light is the master of the house. Therefore once you turn the light around, the energies throughout the body all rise.''

Traditional etymology links "Varanasi" to the names of two Ganges tributaries forming the city's borders: Varuna, still flowing in northern Varanasi, and Assi, today a small stream in the southern part of the city, near Assi Ghat. The old city is located on the north shores of the Ganges, bounded by Varuna and Assi.[32]

In the Mahabharata the city is referred to as Kāśī (काशी: Kashi) from the Sanskrit verbal root kaś- "to shine", making Varanasi known as "City of Light",[33][16] the "luminous city as an eminent seat of learning".[34] The name was also used by pilgrims dating from Buddha's days.[citation needed]

Hindu religious texts use many epithets in Sanskrit to refer to Varanasi, such as Kāśikā (transl. "the shining one"), Avimukta (transl. "never forsaken by Shiva"), Ānandakānana (transl. "the forest of bliss"), Rudravāsa (transl. "the place where Rudra resides"), and Mahāshmashāna (transl. "the great cremation ground").[35]

HUNSTANTON?

Side note: ''When fishing became my therapy; i wondered why it was having such a positive affect on me. Then i discovered the psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.  He's famous for coming up with the practical theory that something that can completely engross you can help many mental health conditions {including boredom? - recall Part 1}. He calls it ''Flow''. The concept of flow. BEING in the flow, in the zone, in the moment - its a fairly new term - its also as OLD AS THE HILLS {Gog Magog / al-Qurn?}. Its Eastern philosophy, its Buddihism, its Zen, all those things. Its about losing oneself in the MOMENT. And we all know what being in the zone is - its when time stands still {'Saturn'? / ''event horizon''?}.

The cedar boat of Khufu.

Concerns whether they be about money, relationships, profession, career etc - all the mundane stuff - just falls to one side {'in profile'?} - and you are just FOCUSED in the moment....A state of equilibrium. ['Robson and Jims Fly-fishing Adventure in Iceland' / ITV].

Equinoxes to enlarge.

Abydos/Denderah?

In the form of 'two triangles'. Above/below. Fire/water. That same shape that can be seen on the 'hind quarters' {left} of the 'headless' Sphinx on the east side at Gebel el Silsila. Question. What god/goddess represents ''an hour''? Dawn?

That link between incarnation {West} /Reincarnation {East}. Enlarged elsewhere. Try ''Jones'' and/or ''Smith''. And/or: ''Static/dynamic''

ALL as a means....?

'She who loves silence'.

A working example: ''These hills are telling me to shut up in the loveliest of ways.'' ['Walking With Shappi Khorsandi' / BBC2 / 2022].

Refresher: ''On the east side of the mound, diametrically opposite the entrance, a stone was  discovered in 1901 which had three suns carved on it, two of them with their 'rays' enclosed in a circle as if in prison, the other free. '' [Page 103].

End of the world - or just symbols/hieroglyphs to 'peak' an interest? An interest which according to this MIND SET gives 'salvation'. Question. Al-Qurn?

Side note:  {from a different perspective}:''Genghis Khan's body after death was purified and wrapped in WHITE felt....If a single stone is ever disturbed it would be the 'end of the world'..'' ['Lost Tomb of Genghis Khan' / Nat. Geo].

Question. When his body is found - will they be quartz stones?

Try ''revelation'' before those 1st impressions decide something else.

Side note: ''At Amarna, quartzite was almost entirely used for female statues, although Akhenaten did have quartzite shabti figures....Quartzite and red granite, for example, had strong solar connections; this may explain why Akhenaten favoured yellow-red and purple quartzite....' [Page 108 'Nefertit's Face' / J. Tyldesley].

Anima or animus?

Lunar = ?

Goddess of Dawn. 'Garments' to enlarge.

Further clues: ''Newgrange is a flat - topped round barrow...it is built of heaped stones, not of earth, and was originally covered with white quartz pebbles: a Bronze Age sepulchral practice in honour of the White Goddess which may account in part for the legends of Kings housed after death in 'glass' castles. Ten enormous stone herms, weighing eight or ten tons apiece, stand in a semi-circle around the southern end....and one formally stood at the summit. It is not known how many more have been removed but 'gaps' suggest an original set of twelve...." [Same page and book].

Question. If 'eleven' was the original number then ''five'' and six''? Enlarged elsewhere. The main point being answers can be got because of those universal constants regardless of whether it be ''eleven'', 'twelve' or 'thirteen' - in order to get as close as possible to a MIND SET.

'Waters of the Gap' ?

Refresher: {as ONE example}: "We don't know the purpose of the white quartz pebbles. There found in mortuary context from pre-historic periods onward and also medieval cemeteries. There's a passage in the Bible - Revelations- about a person who has found Christ is given a white stone - and in that - a new 'name'...."

''Glass' and or ''semi-circle'' to enlarge - step by step. Question. Footwear optional?

And/or: ''Revolving'' in relation to what the word ''Sidhe'' represents to the 'whole'.

And/or: ''Like the Grail legends, the alchemists techniques provided a structured journey, deeply embedded in symbolism, through which the would be initiate could seek the 'shining jewel' of refined spirit within him/her....One road leads inwards, to the maze at the heart of our inner castle, the other road, scattered with jewels and the remains of burnt out failures, leads to the world of every day toil and achievement. You are standing at that crossroads, and guilded by whatever steps you may have already taken on both of those ways, now you may go forward on your chosen path.'' [Final paragraph 'The Path Through the Labyrinth' / M. Green].

Question. Red, green, yellow, purple or white ones?

Wet / Dry - which and why?

Continued: "But are these two worlds Pan spoke of to remain forever separate? I have seen this lake, in my minds eye, I think. I found myself on May Hill, and it was an island. All this was sea - or lake. And a friend said the other day that she could never take her shoes off in this house for fear of getting her feet wet! But not in this world, if you know what I mean. She 'felt' the lake without knowing about it." ['The Sword in the Sun'].

"And we may note here that Gautama, the Buddha was born, reached illumination, and died at the ''full moon of May.'' In the deepest sense he symbolizes the raising of ''new moon'' instinct to the clarity of ''full moon'' consciousness, of unconscious Nature to conscious Meaning...." [Page 67, 'The Lunation Cycle' / D. Rudhyar].

Put all those keys {some highlighted} together to not only understand what is implied - but to take the subject material a stage {development?} further...

''The 6th tree is a whitethorn or hawthorn or may, which takes its name from the month of May. It is, in general an unlucky tree.....'' [Page 169 'The White Goddess' / R. Graves].

REFRESHER: "The 'thorns' of the crown center function as the 'nails' of objectivity..." [Taken from 'letter 5' from within the book by Tomberg].

Difference between Eastern and Western Way. Lotus position {'cross' legged} being their START point. 'SEE' it?

Spirit 'fire' {volcano?} Soul 'seed' {'flower' etc}. Under the earth/above it. As a means.....

''Untouched by fire''.

A side step: "In ancient mythology many times Zeus would take the form of a swan..." Quote by Phineas Kastle. ['Pawn Stars'/ History Channel. Series 18. Episode 1].

..."The cause of the later connection of Apollo with Delphi is somewhat confused in the myths. We are dealing with fragments of a very ancient oral tradition that are like pieces of patchwork that have to be assembled into a coherent fabric...Much would seem to depend on the 'changing' character of Apollo - or rather how mankind related to his archetype - for all such 'relationships' are in the process of change with the gradual evolution of consciousness. Solar 'hero's' in particular tend to transform in this way." Same book.

And/or Hera/Zeus in relation to 'elder'? Leto/Apollo in relation to 'younger'? OR would that be vice versa? Therefore link to Manifested/UNmanifested? As a means to...?

Side note: The film 'The life of Pi' {mentioned elsewhere}. Plenty of 'keys' - one of which = ''floating island''. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

'Birthing' bricks.

The Church of Saint George was carved downwards from a type of volcanic tuff. This is the sole architectural material that was used in the structure. It has been dated to the late 12th or early 13th century AD, and thought to have been constructed during the reign of King Gebre Mesqel Lalibela, of the late Zagwe dynasty.

Mayan equivalent? "The ceremonial precinct of Tiahuanaco was surrounded by a moat, to give the impression of a site - as a floating island. The central feature of the core precinct is a man made mountain of seven levels - rising some fifty feet high called Akapana. The adjacent Semi-subterranean Temple and the Kalasaya lie along an east-west axis - the suns rising and setting horizons on the equinoxes. A sunken courtyard was found atop the Akapana temple. Its purpose was to catch rainwater, and a system of drains..." ['Galactic Alignment'].

Water in relation to ?

Step pyramid? Try ''moat''.

"I wanted to use water because the film is talking about faith, and it contains fish, life and every emotion for Pi. And air is God, heaven and something spiritual and death. That's how I see it. I believe the thing we call faith or God is our emotional attachment to the unknown. I'm Chinese; I believe in the Taoist Buddha. We don't talk about a deity, which is very much like this book; we're not talking about religion but God in the abstract sense, something to overpower you." [ Ang Lee, on the use of water and the spiritual element of Life of Pi / film November 17,2012 / wiki ].

Refresher: "God is a hypothesis which is ''very probably necessary''. Quote by Eliphas Levi.
