Esotericism Part 2 Sec 01

 

 

 

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.

"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.

"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 too soul? S/W - S/E?

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.

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...?

mm

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

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?

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'?

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?

''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?

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].

''Manger'' to enlarge.

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?

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].

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....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.

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?}.

And/or: Self-Consciousness is the distinctly human aspect of consciousness of the WAKING mind which you are using to read these pages. Self-consciousness {'waxing'?} finds its highest expression in the process of deductive reasoning. It formulates the premises which subconsciousness {'waning'?} accepts as suggestion, elaborates by deduction, and carries out in the direction of physiological function and organization....Another alchemical symbol for self-consciousness is FIRE, chosen because of the form destroying nature of all self conscious activities {i.e., old into the new}. Its emblem is an UPRIGHT equilateral triangle." [Pages 18/19 'Occult Fundamentals and Spiritual Unfoldment' / Paul Foster Case].

Egyptian equivalent: Lake of 'fire'? and/or Hippo/Croc? Enlarged elsewhere.

Think about it all - in relation to that universal ''bit''.

ALL AS A MEANS.....?

Put those 'two' triangles together to 'see' it {gnosis?} from the Hebrew perspective.

deer

Twin Horned? Another 'piece' within that mind set? 'The Swimming Reindeer'. The 'tip' of a mammoth horn - in two pieces. Enlarged throughout. Tip = Peninsula link? Try Sheffield and Rhodes Island to enlarge. Lizard Point?

Continued: "The Boreal Forest is the largest forest on Earth, the world's biggest terrestrial biome making up 29% of the worlds forest. It extends all the way around the northern end of the world...IT runs everywhere from the Tundra at latitude 70 to the southern tip of Cornwall at latitude 50...The ancient Greeks called the north wind Boreas and they called Britain Hyperborea, meaning the land behind the north wind...Reindeer were native to our land long ago...Our ancestors followed the deer trods...The reindeer mythos spread further south than the climatic limits of the Boreal Forest, down into ancient Greece. Pictures of a female deer bearing antlers and being caught by the hero Heracles are on several pieces of Greek art...The only female deer to carry antlers..." [Page 16-17 'Elen of the Ways' / E. Sentier]. Try ''deer'' / ''flint'' and especially ''Doe''.

N.B. Flint excavated using antlers. See part 3. Question. Male or female antlers? A sacred act?

Horn of Plenty?

Question. Plenty of what?

Side note: ''The Lizard peninsula derives its curious name from the old Cornish "Lis-ardh", meaning fortress. The Lizard Peninsula is a notorious stretch of coastline that has been the site of many disasters at sea.''

'Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes For Lizards'.

''The name Demelza is girl's name of Cornish origin meaning "fort on the hill". Complex and challenging modern Cornish name derived from a place name. The given name began to be used in the U.K. in the 1950s via the serialization on British TV of the Poldark novels of Winston Graham, whose heroine was named Demelza.

''The area is famous for its carved serpentine items - which range from ornaments to the pump handles in the local public house, the Lizard Inn (The Top House). The geology of Lizard can be interesting to some, with a number of planned walks available from local tourist authorities to discover more about the local rocks.'' [Wiki].

Continued: "I ask you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the Gazelles or the Doe's of the field, that you do not arouse or awaken my love, until she pleases." [Song of Songs 3:5].

Understand this subject to define {among others} that most enigmatic of biblical texts. Try ''marriage'' / ''bride'' and ''child'' as a start point.

''The origins of Genghis Khan: At the beginning there was a blue-grey wolf, born with his destiny ordained by Heaven Above. His wife was a fallow doe. They came crossing the Tenggis. After they had settled at the source of the Onan River on Mount Burqan Qaldun, a son was born to them..." [First chapter, first paragraph of the 'Secret History of the Mongols' / Igor de Rachewiltz].

Coincidence?

The 'Torc' that looks at the start like the horned moon - a crescent of gold. Upon completion {of a cycle?} the 'horns' come together {Full Moon?} - like a wedding ring. To be worn around the neck - the TOP OF THE SPINE {Kundalini?}. The second ''ring'' awaiting the completion of the next ''cycle'' {'Octave'?}.

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

''Gateway'' = Boundary = E-W OR N-S or vice versa? as a means....

The New Light and The Open Entrance? {Thomas Vaughan}.

Question. What's the common factor besides the obvious. Who was the ''protector'' of Heracles - god or goddess? Any link to the ''golden torc''? i.e., one relates more to the 'sun' the other the 'moon'. Which and why? Understand {'see'} those ''dualities'' to attempt a MIND SET.

Side note: Nothing but deer antlers found in the ditch surrounding Stonehenge. That external one. The one that began it all - PRIOR to the erection {'creation'? i.e., in the metaphysical SENSE of the word} of those original ''blue stones''. That came from the 'west'. Looking from the outside in. Towards the 'east'. Similar to the ''axe heads'' -that are mostly  found on the outside of the Sarsen stone. ''Blue'' in relation to 'fire'. Sarsen in relation to 'water' i.e., a glacial  bi-product. Mountain in relation to Valley - ''Westward leading still PROCEEDING - guide us to thy perfect light.''

Try Labyrinth to enlarge. And/or '23'.

And/or: Stonehenge ''lintels'' = ''tongue and groove'' = Petrification? THE ONLY ONE OF ITS KIND.

From a different viewpoint {Egyptian} Cedar wood?

Recall what is REPRESENTED at the peak 'summit' of the Valley of the 'Kings'.

And/or Lintel = Mut = 'Wife' and 'Mother' of Amon {the ''only'' one?}.

Question. What does N/W represent? In the MACRO sense of the word.

Hyperborean Islands?

REFRESHER: "In the woman's meditation the Self appeared as a deer, which said to the ego: ''I am your child and your mother. They call me the 'connecting animal' because i connect people, animals, and even stones with one another if i enter them. I am your fate or the 'objective I.' When i appear, I redeem you from the meaningless hazards of life. The 'fire' burning inside me burns in the whole of nature. If a man loses it, he becomes egocentric, lonely, disorientated and weak." ['Man and his Symbols'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Question. ''If a woman loses it'' = Dionysus link?

And/or the 46 skeletons found in the {'tomb'?} complex at West Kennet Long Barrow/England.

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'].

Something extra: ''Photosynthesis is a process easy to describe in words - plants take energy from the sun, then use it to react to carbon dioxide and water  - to make sugars and a waste product - oxygen. Real easy to say. Very difficult to do.... Its comprised of 46,630 atoms, all working together in an intracate machine...Then we eat the plants or eat something thats eaten the plants, and we do the reverse reaction. We take in those sugars and breath in that waste product - oxygen....That energy {'sweet'?} maintains our structure....it allows us to live and grow.'' ['Universe' / B. Cox].

Side step: ''He began to inch his way up the face of the bank. Towards the top he had to negotiate the huge exposed roots of the yews which creaked like old hinges in the wind....Tom could see nothing at first except the smooth moss covered mound in the center. He recognised it as a long barrow, a burial mound built on the far horizon of history by Stone Age men. On top of the mound, a single massive finger of stone accused the sky.'' [Page 6 'The Serpents Circle' / P. Harpur].

Inithuatana Stone?

hare1Alchemical 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''.

Question. What does the 'swan' represent?

N.B. The 'hare' and 'dove' - constellations at the 'foot' of Orion.

Lovey - Dovey?

Side note: Many animal bones found under Stonehenge: Pigs, wolfs, foxes and ravens...

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].

Hence: "...the single horn had been 'seeded' by the imaginative faculties...'' ['The Zelator']. 'See' it? ALL AS A MEANS...? Try ''horn''.

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].

Analogy {different time and place}: "Under the tongue root, a fight most dread, and another raging behind, in the head." [Excerpt from the 'Battle of the Trees'. Taken from the book 'The White Goddess' / R. Graves].

'See' that battle in the bigger context i.e., ''....the battle described by Gwion is not a frivolous battle, or a battle physically fought, but a 'battle' fought intellectually in the heads and with the tongues of the 'learned'...." [Same book. Page 38].

''Forked tongue''?

The Shabaka Stone. Was being used in a Mill {when first found}: ''When the eyes see, the EARS hear and the NOSE inspires breath, they convey that to the heart.... it is the tongue that announces what the heart has thought. It {the tongue} fashioned all the 'gods', and the Ennead, and every divine word, also came into BEING through what the heart conceived and the tongue commanded...By speaking the Great Word, the bolts of heaven {'ascending'?} were unlocked, and the boat of Re, which is enlightenment {manifested}, was able to flow forth as fresh as the first ray of sunlight.'' [Page 80 'Imagining the World Into Existence']. Question. Concept of Flow?

Something extra:{and/or refresher}: "What is remarkable about all this is the way that the 'mill' {which continues to serve as an allegory for cosmic processes} stubbornly keeps on resurfacing, all over the world, even where the context has been jumbled or lost....Among the Cherokees, whose name for the Milky Way {our own galaxy} is 'Where the Dog Ran'. In ancient times, according to Cherokee tradition, 'the people in the South had a corn mill', from which meal was stolen {trickster type} again and again. In due course the owners discovered the thief, a dog, who 'ran off howling to his home in the North' with the meal dropping from his mouth as he ran, and leaving behind a white trail where now we see the Milky Way, which the Cherokee call to this day - ''Where the Dog Ran''...."

Pictish Stylized 'eyes'? Dog in 'lower half' of stylized 'bolt of lightening'? {''Bolt from the blue''?}. Question. What would 'higher' be represented with? LEAF? {therefore 'tree' symbolism} ? Oak / Apple or Thorn and why?

"In the Pagan Mysteries, beginners were known as 'mystae', meaning 'those with eyes closed', and enlightened initiates were known as 'epopteia' meaning, 'those who can see'." [From the book by T. Freke and P. Gandy].

'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." ['Symbol and the Symbolic: Ancient Egypt, Science, and the Evolution of Consciousness' / R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz].

As {one} example: "The 'Z' sign {i.e., referred to as lightening flash or Serpentine sign} - is an energy pattern that cuts across the cycle of the 'four elements', suspending all turning of the Wheel of Life and Change." [From Chapter 5 - Sacred Space - 'The Way of Merlin' / R. Stewart].

Mill wheel? Therefore ''Precession'' as a means....?

In other words, a representation - if only in the ritual and/or especially dance form {'spiral?} - sense of the word - OF E/S/W/N {'horizontal'} in relation {''cuts across''} to E/S/N/W {'vertical'}. ALL in relation to that universal ''bit''. As a means...?

Can you 'see' it? If you can then you begin to understand such {concepts?} as ''Morris Dancing''. Enlarged elsewhere.

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.

'The minds eye' {'third' eye?}.

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].

Question. Double archway? As a representation of something? Think about it in relation to the 'double archway' on the north side of the Gt. Pyramid.

REFRESHER: Gnosis in relation to the ''cognitive faculty'' {i.e.,root of}. Question What 'number' represents it AND why?

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

''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 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?

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?

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].

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?

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.

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.''

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].

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..."

"...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'].

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?'..."

''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?

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?

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'].

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'].

It is the glory of the Work that its dross also can be raised up. The Albedo can not only suceed inspite 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.''

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....

".....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."

"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].

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'.

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. It lacks consciousness {i.e., not yet assimilated or made manifest}...but its activities are the food of the soul. The ancients remind us that: 'The seeing of the eye, the hearing of the ears, and the breathing of the nose bring messages to the heart.

From a different perspective - but 'nuggets' gleamed from it: ''It is not appropriate to ''banish'' a persistent ghost; in fact to a spirit form on a mission may be detrimental. What is important is to release the ghost from its former personality, to communicate to it the power of its former life and to have it ''turn around'' in order to find the other everlasting layers of self, higher up on the spiritual plane {'Valley plain'?}, so that it may continue in its journey towards the light.''

Continued: Analogy: "In Theology this 'pure consciousness' is Siva, and 'His' power {Sakti} who as - 'She' is in her formless self - is one with him. 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. Completed Yoga is the union of her and him....This is Laya or dissolution, the reverse of Srsti or involution of 'spirit' in mind and matter." [Page 27 'The Serpent Power' / J. Woodroffe].

N.B. ''Life force'' in relation to that 'universal BIT' ? A connectedness of something by way of the OBJECTIVE process {or would that be ''principle''?}.

'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].

"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?}. At the birth of Apollo and Artemis it became firmly anchored to the sea bed with four great pillars, and is described evocatively, as quoted by Kerenyi, as a 'widely visible star of the dark earth' {'Morning' star or supernova?}. 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. All of this brings us back to the traditions surrounding Perseus..." Enlarged/continued elsewhere. Part 3. [Extract from the book by G. Knight. All emphasis, this readers].

The Arabs also knew it as Al Fum al Asad and as Al Anf al Asad, the Mouth, and the Muzzle, of the Lion, both referring to the early figure.

The sieu Kwei, Spectre, anciently Kut, the Cloud-like, was made up from Praesepe with η and θ, the latter most strangely selected, as it is now hardly distinguishable by the naked eye, and yet was the determining star, — perhaps a case of variation in brightness. This asterism, the Tsing in our Gemini, formed Shun Show, one of the twelve zodiacal Kung, which Williams translates as the Quail's Head, giving the modern title as Keu Hea, the Crab; this Quail being otherwise known as the Phoenix, Pheasant, or the Red Bird that, with the stars of Leo and Virgo, marked the residence of the Red, or Southern, Emperor.

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!''

Head-light moment?

'Message' in a bottle?

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.''

Recall the ''head jars''. Elsewhere.

And/or: ''The word translated as "box" was actually a large jar (πίθος pithos) in Greek.[8][9] Pithoi were used for storage of wine, oil, grain or other provisions, or, ritually, as a container for a human body for burying, from which it was believed souls escaped and necessarily returned.[10] Many scholars see a close analogy between Pandora herself, who was made from clay, and the clay jar which dispenses evils.'' [Wiki].

''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".

Kibotos?

And/or: ''The prominent appearance of Canopus means it has been the subject of mythological lore among many ancient peoples. Its proper name is generally considered to originate from the mythological Canopus, who was a navigator for Menelaus, king of Sparta. The acronychal rising marked the date of the Ptolemaia festival in Egypt. In ancient India, it was named Agastya after the revered Vedic sage. For Chinese astronomers, it was known as the Old Man of the South Pole.'' [Wiki].

Canopus the brightest star in the southern constellation of Carina {'the keel of a ship'}. The SECOND brightest star in the night sky.

'Second nature'?

''It would be trifling without end to be particular in his follies, but his fishing must not be forgotten. 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: ''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.''

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.''

Continued: A work in progress: ''The Jewish Talmud, a 4th century AD source, referred to Magdala as Migdal-Nunya, meaning ''tower of fish''....This is one explanation for the origin of the town's name, Migdal, meaning tower.

The similitude of above and below is revealed here in its deeper meaning''.

Continued: {sentence in italics in relation to}: "...It will be the 'white' raven {north?} not the 'black' one, which will show the way....The white raven, magical, impossibly rare, unseen in common hours. 'Teacher, what does it mean?'....'Riddle me this Bear Cub,' Merlyn replied...." [Page 37 'Deeper Teachings of Merlyn' / D. Monroe]. Enlarged elsewhere.

Other key words associated with that same round barrow with flat top: Semi-circle/ white pebbles/ glass and ''beehive corbelled vault'' {'void'?}. Also ''Four great pillars'' found within. Squaring the circle?''I

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. There are several 'Fortresses of the Sidhe' in Ireland, the most remarkable ones being Brugh- na- Boyne {now called 'New Grange'}, Knowth and Dowth, on the northern banks of the river Boyne...." [Page 98-101 'The White Goddess'].

Question. 'Anchored' or not?

''Only seven ever returned from Caer Sidi''

Try 'Smith and Jones' to determine whether relevant more to 'east' or 'west' and/or 'incarnation/reincarnation. Welsh equivalent.

''Seven must 'die' before the treasure is found'' {'Curse of Oak Island' / History Channel}.

Side note: ''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. Zeus is even said to have forgiven his father, Cronos, and made him king of Elysium.'' [Page 65 'Lords of the Left Hand Path' / S. Flowers].

N.B. Athena = ''Born from the head of Zeus.'' {=''wisdom''}.

And/or: Prometheus = ''The one with foreknowledge.''

And/or: Themis = the mother of Prometheus, who 'stole fire from heaven' i.e., ''GIFT of divine light''. [Page 63 onwards for full story: 'Lords of the Left Hand Path' / S. Flowers].

Question. Does TRUE ''wisdom'' come before or after ''foregiveness''?

''Suffering'' link?

Continued: ''On the east side of the mound, diametrically {'hypotenuse'?} opposite the entrance, a stone was discovered in 1901 which has three suns carved on it, two of them with their rays enclosed in a circle as if in prison, the other free. Above them is a much rougher, unenclosed sun and above that, notched across a straight line, the Ogham letters B and I - which, as will be explained presently, are the first and last letters of the ancient Irish alphabet, dedicated respectively to inception and death.'' [Page 98/9 'The White Goddess' / R. Graves].

Question 2. What is the difference {in the 'spiritual' sense of the word} of a Palace/Castle/Temple?

Set of arms. Raised?

Something extra: ''To be in the castle of Arianrhod is to be in a royal purgatory waiting resurrection...the name of the Underworld over which the White Goddess ruled is derived by grammarians from the root ereph, which means to 'cover or conceal'. It was the Moon goddess, not the Sun god, who originally inspired Orpheus. The clearest sign that we have the old matriarchal Triple Goddess, or White Goddess, lies in her giving 'her son' Llew Llaw a 'name' and a set of arms {shield?}. In patriarchal society it was always the 'father' who gives both...I thought at first that Gwion's riddle about Caer Arianrhod was to be completed with 'and the whirling round without motion between the three elements'. The three elements are clearly fire, air and water...'' [Page 100 same book].

Question. 'Earth' = ''anchored''?

What about Matriarch?

'Static/Dynamic' ?

A working example: ''As an anchor through the toughest of times.'' {Robson Green}.

Flat top - but on an incline?

Incline?

Hence: ''....the sacred kings of Bronze Age Ireland, who were solar kings of a most primitive type , to judge by the taboos which bound them....were buried beneath these barrows; but their 'spirits' went to Caer Sidi, the castle of Ariadne, namely Corona Borealis. Thus the pagan Irish could call Newgrange 'Spiral Castle'.....A revolving wheel before the door of a castle is common in Goidelic legend. According to Keating , the magic fortress of the enchantress Blanaid {'primrose' link?} - in the Isle of Man, was protected by one - Nobody could enter UNTILL IT WAS STILL." [Page 103, same book].

'Still Waters'? 'She who loves silence'?

''Under ones belt''?

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 {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''?}. 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].

Abydos/Denderah?

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

ALL as a means....?

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].

Try Caer Sidi to enlarge.

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 = ?

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'...."

Now try ''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.

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.

'God in the detail' ?

'What is God?' / Jacob Needleman.

'Devil in the detail'.
