The Motmot Marker Stone. Father and son together. ''Motmot'' = nickname of the son. A link to the ''twin'' tail feathers of such birds as the Kingfisher and BEE-eater. Tiahuanaco {central} - Copan {S/E] - ALL as a means...?

"A thing has no existence relatively to ourselves before we become conscious of its existence...The term consciousness signifies realization of existence relative to a certain thing. Consciousness in the absolute sense is unconsciousness in relation to things... Consciousness means knowledge and life, unconsciousness is ignorance and death..." Quotes taken from the book by F. Hartman.

Remember - metaphorically speaking.

Example: 'To spit {snake?} in the face of ignorance'.

"Analogy is the quintessence of the 'philosophical' stone." Enlarged elsewhere and throughout.

And/or... 'The Son is the consciousness of the Father.' The 'Father' is the Mystery...the dazzling darkness of UNconscious Consciousness." Quote by Clement of Alexandria.

"We live in dynamic times when humanity is waking up to the implication of a greater transformation and the reality that we are a part of a much greater consciousness universe. The keys of Enoch [and/or 'keys of Solomon'] reveal the past, present and future of life on our planet and how our human nature is non-local and multidimensional, having vast capabilities and endowments of a divine birthright coded within us, that reveals how we are universal beings working within a higher evolutionary plan." [First page, first paragraph,'The Keys of Enoch' by J. J. Hurtak]. And...

"Life is a manifestation of power of the unimaginable cause of all existence. It must be a substantial principle, else it could not exist, because no activity can take place without substance. It has no forms, but is manifested in forms; it continually advances from lower to higher forms, and as it advances the character of forms advances with it. The building of the ''Temple of Solomon'' goes on unceasingly." [Quote taken from the book by F. Hartman].

Understand what is implied by the 'Divine bit' relative to A/B/C defines those statements. it also touches on incarnation / reincarnation - its true meaning, i.e.,relative to the present moment, i.e.,''advances from lower to higher...'' As it does with the following...

"...everything alive is really alive in the fullest and most dynamic sense of the word. It twitches, searches, throbs, organises and seems aware of an upward movement. This foundation would be familiar to nature philosophie, and Prometheus Rising could be seen as continuing in that tradition of synthesis. Indeed, Wilson leaves the reader with a quote from the futurologist Barbara Marx Hubbard: 'The future exists first in imagination, then in Will, then in reality'." [Extract from the book 'The Magister'].

"The worker is hidden in the workshop."

"As time passed, the learned men of each culture became known as sages or wise men - 'one of those who knows'. It was Pythagoras who apparently invented the terminology - philosophy - meaning 'one who is attempting to find out'. " [From the book by Kevin Gest].

A practical {work in progress?} example..."The great centaur Chiron was associated with the hero Jason as well as with Heracles. There are deep mysteries connected with him and he may be equated with the human condition that expresses higher intelligence in animal form. However, there are risks in this condition for the 'intelligence' can still be expressed in contending forms {i.e.,link to the word ''gnosis'' OVER 'intelligence' - benefit of, i.e.,what it implies. This readers input. Enlarged elsewhere - and throughout} - This is represented in the Heracles legend by a great battle {'struggle/wrestle/submit' links - enlarged elsewhere} - of the centaurs {i.e.,'lower' state. Representation / expression of} - which in fact starts as a result of Heracles opening up the 'wine' store of the centaurs - a gift from Dionysos but one that the centaurs did not understand and found difficult to handle. It may be taken to mean the intoxication that can result from direct spiritual awareness. In this 'battle', which we may be assumed to be the historical human condition, the most wise and righteous of the centaurs, Chiron, is wounded by one of Heracles arrows. These {in his previous 'test'} had now been dipped in the Hydra's blood, which meant that there was no cure for anyone 'scratched' by them {i.e.,'serpent' in relation to the word ''kundalini'' i.e.,what it implies relative to a learning curve - if only in the 'spiritual' sense of the word, i.e.,this subject material. Therefore 'higher' {overcoming?} 'lower' }. Chiron {i.e., still in the 'lower' state - indicative of} undergoes prolonged 'suffering', for he can neither live fully nor die; a condition portraying the immortal human spirit bound to the wheel of life and death {i.e.,another expression could be the 'relationship' between something Unmanifested becoming Manifested and/or 'known/UNknown'}. Eventually Chiron's suffering is ended when he is allowed to take the place of Prometheus, who can in turn be 'released' from his bondage as a consequence. In other words, the centaur is a transitional human condition, that passes when the Promethean {'higher' link?} given spirit is fully expressed in 'divine' man - an achievement which fully justifies and 'releases' Prometheus." {Manifested?}. [Extract from the book by G. Knight. All emphasis, this readers].

Keys in relation to 'manifest' - if only in defining a subject.

Food for thought..."One aspect of lodge manifestation has certainly changed over time. That is the significance given to King Solomon and his temple. It is difficult to know whether Solomon's reputation, masonically speaking, has more to do with his being an epitome of wisdom, than his commissioning a temple for the Jewish priesthood." [Extract from the book 'Freemasonry: The Reality' by T. Churton].

Think on it, in relation such books as 'A Test of Time'. Enlarged elsewhere.

And/or: " Its more of an ideology project...." {Quote by Hebrew archaeologist Israel Finkelstein. 'Jerusalem' / Sat. TV}.

Or chapter 'nine' [page '120'], in relation to the tale of 'Atlantis'. Lots of 'keys' used such as Poseidon, islands, red ochre, hot/cold, chariot, six winged horses, Dolphins, 'giants' before the flood, 'ten' kings, or number symbolism relative to inner/outer in relation to 'seven' and 'three', all of which when understood, explains to the reader that tales true intent. Explained within.

As does: "Yes, you did see it. And yes, she does feel it. And no, they will not remain separate. They will unite at the end of the age.

''That will be a catastrophe! And to my world I think. Not to Pans. What of the animals?"

"Yes, a catastrophe, and yes, to your world and not to Pan's. And the Animals? They will all die''

"Then what?"

"They will then forever be alive, and you shall know them as they truly are, for you too shall be alive." [Page 122/3 'Sword in the Sun' / A. Duncan].

Something to ponder on: "These types of men, the one hairless and the other shaggy, recall the old Hindu tradition that speaks of the former as a people originally from Lemuria {a continent submerged, with the exception of certain islands - Madagascar, Indonesia, Ceylon, etc.,}, who were reputed to have been beardless, that is, 'sexually' still in a phase of determination {the 'third' race}, while the Atlanteans {the 'fourth' race} were sexually determined and the men bearded. According to this view, traces of Lemures would remain on the eastern coast of Africa, while populations of the western region would hark back to Atlanteans." ['Sacred Science'].

''Poseidon who was 'master' of Atlantis.'' Question. What does it represent?

''Transforming fingers'' ? Enlarged throughout. Question. In 'profile' or 'face on' ?

Coat of Arms of Morocco. ONE of the pillars of Hercules. 'Long' tails + raised arms? In 'profile' or 'face' on?

"Your house of many mansions is not built by hands. It is situated within yourself and is an essential and permanent part of you. It is your citadel. Picture yourself standing within its portals and take conscious possession of your property." [From the book 'The Silent Road' by W. T. Pole].

Analogy: BETH {2nd letter of Hebrew Alphabet} = ''House''.

And/or: ''Pharoah'' = 'Great House'.

A {practical?} example...

Dear You,

I write this letter in the early hours of the morning thinking if my words help one person then that is something...

Often I wish I could exchange my mind for another one, a spotless one that is seeped in eternal sunshine, instead of the dented one that feels chronically polluted. But this is the mind that I have and I know that there is good within it, in the paintings that I create, the poems that bubble and grow out of the debris...

Right foot anchored.

To dispel the blocks of mental rubbish that clog up my brain I have started a happy book, which is small and easy to carry. It contains drawings and paintings and upon each new page I date it and write my achievements of the day, such as ‘read book to my child’, ‘watered the plants’, ‘worked on painting’, ‘went to the post office’, and these little moments build up to create a picture of my day that is contrary to the one in my head. These small moments help to remind me of who I am and where I am going and what I hope to achieve and do, they keep me anchored to the present...

The mind can become a suffocating prison without a ‘tent of blue’ to peer out of, I choose to unlock the door and walk out of that prison towards the meadows, towards the light and lie down in the grass, look up at the sky, see the shapes in the clouds or the patterns in the stars and dream that life can get better, if I let it. Indeed, it can, if only a tiny bit – a tiny bit is something to cherish...

Please don’t feel stuck in the darkness, I know what it’s like; you are not alone. May your life get that little bit brighter, I believe that it can and it will...

You have to look at each day like a new canvas and decide the painting you want your day to be rather than paint the same old dark picture that just compounds that sense of doom, gloom and hopelessness. You have to choose the colours you want your painting to be even if your default stance is to go for morose shades of grey and black. There are flecks of light and colour in each day, tiny ones like a bright ochre, or a crimson scarlet. These iridescent colours shine and smile out at us all. They are friendly and warm. These colours can guide you towards a brighter place and help you paint a different sort of painting. A painting that when you look at it speaks to you like an old friend, inspires, comforts and stirs something deep inside, you just have to open your eyes a little wider and let those colours in.''

Side note: ''A painter that only uses red''. {Jaime Lannister}.

Continued: "Take good care of yourself, be kind to yourself, be your number one ally, and keep searching for that fleck of light sleeping in the shadows. It is there, I can see that tiny fleck right now – put it in your pocket and cherish it.''[Q. S. Lam]. Question. 'See' any keys?

Try the Mona Lisa - to 'see' something from a different perspective. The above example from an 'unknown' position - the 'Mona' from a 'known' one - yet both contain those common factors. Question. What does that imply?

Was the Mona Lisa created under a psychosis?

''Tent of blue'' and ''colours'' in relation to: "It is essential to understand thoroughly what the word 'Neter' {key} means. We have seen that in every month of each seasonal period of the year, every hour of the day has its Neter, because each one of these hours has its own character. It is known that the blue morning-glory blooms at sunrise and closes at midday like the lotus flower. This is observed but not understood. More easily understood is the fact that certain fruits require afternoon sun in order to ripen and to colour..." ['Sacred Science'].

''Blue'' {morning}, ''fruit'' {afternoon} - ALL in relation to the 'fruit of ones labours' - as a means...? REPRESENTED {beginnings of} - with the 'lotus' flower. Try ''blue'' for other examples.

Aquarius?

''The Birth of the New Man.'' 'Egg/Incarnation' to enlarge.

A working example: ''Oh Unas you are not dead. You are alive to sit on the Throne of Osiris. Your Scepter is in your hand that you may give orders to the living. The Handle of the Lotus shaped Scepter is in your hand....The Pavilion of Unas is woven with Reeds...The water of Unas is wine, like that of Re....The abomination of Unas is hunger. He does not eat it. The abomination of Unas is thirst. He does not eat it. Unas it is indeed....His Nurse is the Milk goddess. It is She who makes Him live again. She gives him birth. Unas is conceived at night. He is born at night. For he belongs to the Followers of Re, who are before the Morning Star. He is conceived and born in the Watery Abyss. He has come. He has brought your Bread which he has found there. The Eye of Horus trickles on the bush of the Yew Plant. Khentiamenti comes to him indeed. He has brought him the 'food' of Horus, who is at the Head of his Houses....Of what he eats, Unas eats.....One joint and one cake, this is his offering...'' [Page 34 'The Pyramid Texts' / W. Budge].

''In the Christian tradition it is the twentyfifth of March - the date that Mary was told she would give birth to Jesus.''

Rungs of a ladder? 'Shaded' top?

And/or: ''One building project that was lost to us, but now is found is the little pavilion built for Senusret I's first jubilee (Sed) festival, which according to custom, occurred during the king's 30th year as ruler (though it is probable that Senusret's festival was held in his 31st year of rule). It was probably built to house the royal barque and is sometimes referred to as a "barque shrine". Popularly known as the White Chapel, it had been disassembled and used as fill in Amenhotep III's Third Pylon at Karnak during the 18th Dynasty. In 1924, the director general of the Egyptian Antiquities Service, Pierre Lacau, ordered his director of works at Karnak, Henri Chevrier, to repair this Pylon, but in order to do so, the pylon had to be dismantled.''

'ten' ?

And/or: ''Located at the N/W edge of the Arabian Desert, the ancient city of Petra recieved less than 4 iches of rain each year....The capital of the Nabataean Kingdom {1st century BC - 1st century AD}. The crossroads of the caraven trade routes connecting Arabia and the Mediterranean....On a terrace in the middle of the city evidence of a pool, hewn from bedrock. In the middle an island with a pavilion, decorated with imported marble {'foreign/abroad'?} and painted stucco - an ideal spot for banqueting. Doors on all four sides that can 'see' anyone approaching.'' [Page 26 'Archaeology' / March/April 2023].

'Overhang'?

Atlas = ''the first cervical vertebrae.''

''Wisdom - a secret contemplation - is like a ladder. Men mount by means of ladders to climb up to possessions and treasures and things in strong places {'fortress' or 'pavilion'?}. By means of this secret contemplation, without knowing how, the soul ascends and climbs up to a knowledge and possession of the good things and treasures of Heaven....This is the treasure of the strong place of Sion - which is happiness...In order that men may mount, it has them also that they may descend {exalt/humble links}....This is the ordinary course of the state of contemplation until the soul arrives at a state of quietness; it never remains in the same state for long together, but is ascending and descending continually...Eventually to become united {with 'him'}, which comes to pass at the summit of this ladder, for the ladder rests and leans upon him. For this ladder of contemplation from god to man and man to god, ascending and descending - who himself is leaning UPON the end of the ladder....We observe then that the steps of this ladder of love by which the soul mounts, then, one by one, to God, are ten. The first step causes the soul to lanquish. The Bride speaks from this first step of 'love': 'I adjure you, daughters of Jerusalem, that you find my Beloved....'' [Pages 91-3 'Dark Night of the Soul' / St. John].

Anima or Animus?

Happy or Sad?

A working example: ''But Thou knowest that i am; in ascending this pillar, i lean on thee alone. And that to thee alone i look for the happy issue of mine undertaking. Accept then, my object. Strengthen me, that i may finish this painful course. Give me the grace to end it in holiness.''

Obelisks?

''This is where holiness comes from. Leaning on him alone {in, or by way of - silence}. [Kathleen Nichols: Magdala: Day 33 {thirtythree}: Desert Father: Simon Stylites: Seeking Silence: Pilgrimage of Freedom: Lent 2023].

Seated on what?

Side note: ''This question was posed by Jesus to his apostles in the region of Caesarea Philippi, on or near the feast of Yom Kippur, when the name of the Lord was pronounced by the High Priest in the Temple. He asked his disciples, “who do people say the Son of Man is?” (Matt. 16:13) The identity of the Lord was originally revealed to Moses in the Burning Bush on Mt Sinai when he inquired about God’s identity. “…Tell them I AM has sent me to you.” (Exodus 3:14)

Jesus’ question makes a direct reference to his identity: do the people recognize him as the Messiah? After giving him a number of answers, Jesus made the question personal asking, “who do you say that I am?” Peter proclaims Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the living God, receiving a blessing in return. (Matt 16:15-17)

I AM: {C}alliope - Chief muse. A link to the number 'nine'. WHY?

The 9th annual Women’s Encounter at Magdala places this question in the mouth of women. In answer, the world offers an abundance of explanations about feminine identity. Many prefer not to specify, others guess, some speak from a variety of ideologies or personal experiences, and there is a growing number who declare the question unanswerable. A number of individuals make this inquiry about the femininity of philosophy and religion. What does reason say I am? Who does God say I am?  Time and space are needed both to ask this question and to formulate a satisfying answer.

Providing this time and space – for reflection, conversation and celebration of feminine identity – is what the 9th Annual Women’s Encounter at Magdala seeks to provide.'' ['Magdala' / Israel].

Shelter? Whats the ladder made from?

Continued: ''The Philosophical Tree: The outward form can change over time, but the richness and vitality of a symbol are expressed more in its change of meaning. Taken on average, the commonest associations to its meaning are growth, life unfolding of form in a physical and spiritual SENSE, development, growth from below upwards and from above downwards, the maternal aspect i.e., protection {Sycamore bark?}, shade {'Sun-shade'?}, shelter, nourishing fruits, source of life, solidity, permanence, firm-rootedness, but also being ''rooted to the spot'', old age, personality, and finally death and rebirth.'' [Page 272 'Alchemical Studies' / C. G. Jung].

Whats the common factor between Tree, Bush and Ladder?

A different perspective.

Cloud People. S/E?

And/or: ''We have put together a picture of the international metropolis in the Song and Yuan Dynasties. Many inscriptions from different religions appeared at this time....One such inscription was within a stone relief in a city wall. The figure seems to be a christian angel {cross-legged} with its wings and a cross on its chest. Clouds above... On closer examination it throws up some mysteries. The cross rises from a lotus flower...A  French scholar published his discovery of this stone carving....He called it the Zai Tun Cross. It caused quite a stir.'' ['Return to Zai Tun' i.e., S/E China. Nat Geo / 3.12.21].

Question. Any 'flowers' on the Narmer Palette?

'Lords of the Left Hand Path' / S. E. Flowers.

Female aspect {Mary Magdalene} touching the hem of 'Jesus'. A linen one.

"Noon indicates the beginning of the battle against the powers of Seth. Noon, the sun's culminating moment of the day, marks the transition between rising and decline; it is the critical hour during which all of nature becomes silent. In Chinese acupuncture, noon is the passing from solar {Yang} to lunar {Yin}. ['Sacred Science'].

Try ''noon'' and/or ''silence'' all as a means...? Since the dawn of human thought?

'The Quest of Seth' / E. C. Quinn.

A working example: ''Though centuries of floods reduced the temple to no more than looted ruins, these statues have withstood any disaster nature throws their way. In 27 B.C., an earthquake shattered the northern colossus, collapsing its top and cracking its lower half. But strangely, the damaged statue did more than merely survive the catastrophe: After the earthquake, it also found its voice.

Hapi the river god on its side panel. A balance of something {''within the heart''}? Famine Stela to enlarge.

At dawn, when the first ray of desert sun spilled over the baked horizon, the shattered statue would sing. Its tune was more powerful than pleasant; a fleeting, otherworldly song that evoked mysterious thoughts of the divine. By 20 BC, esteemed tourists from around the Greco-Roman world were trekking across the desert to witness the sunrise acoustic spectacle. Scholars including the likes of Pausanias, Publius, and Strabo recounted tales of the statue’s strange sound ringing through the morning air. Some say it resembled striking brass, while others compared it to the snap of a breaking lyre string.

The unearthly song is how these ancient Egyptian statues wound up with a name borrowed from ancient Greece. According to Greek mythology, Memnon, a mortal son of Eos, the goddess of Dawn, was slain by Achilles. Supposedly, the eerie wail echoing from the cracked colossus’ chasm was him crying to his mother each morning. (Modern scientists believe early morning heat caused dew trapped within the statue’s crack to evaporate, creating a series of vibrations that echoed through the thin desert air).''

'Misty' to enlarge.

Stylized 'H'?

A work in progress: "I first became interested in the idea of self analysis when i was fifteen....The turning point came a year later when i saw for the second time, a trilogy of tele programmes on Jung. For some reason i had been unaffected by the first showing but the second time around i felt as if struck by lightening and began to study Jungs works....Some months later i spent a long a sleepless night. I only got about an hours sleep because i was 'waiting' for something to happen.

Completed? No 'gaps'?

I had no idea what it was but eventually it emerged as two brief dreams. The first was two fish rushing around in a circle, trying to bite each others' tails and neither succeeding. I took this to relate to my attempts at analysing myself - that i was going round and round in circles not getting anywhere. The second dream, though, had enormous feeling to it. It consisted of a brief glimpse of a benign yet frightening Merlin figure dressed entirely in black {'shadow' aspect}. To his left was a large Chinese gong and in his right hand was a large stick with a large globe at the end with which he beat the gong. The figure then stood stock still and said: 'Turn away from me for i am the Echo Maker.'......

Side note: "....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 'The White Goddess' / R. Graves].

''Curtained'' = Veiled or UNveiled?

Continued: "At that time i had only ever written about ten poems but i was so affected by this dream that i wrote the following poem about it entitled, 'I meet the Echo Maker'.....

'Frightened he turned away. The withered plant, his soul. The beautiful flower - his imagination. Here, curtained from the darkness of the night sky - the echo maker struck another note. Stick in hand he screamed. The piercing laugh echoed the desperate dance between man and silence. A dance to the death. 'Turn away from me', he screamed - for i am the Echo Maker'.....

"Although i continued to read Jung and to apply his ideas, the grip he had upon me began to diminish and this dream had a lot to do with it. It was a clear message that i had to find my own voice and stop being an echo of someone else." [Pages 5-6 'Apollo Versus the Echo Maker' / A. Lunt].

'She who loves silence'.

'Synchronistic' or AN ECHO THROUGH THE AGES?

''Hapi (Ancient Egyptian: ḥꜥpj) was the god of the annual flooding of the Nile in ancient Egyptian religion. The flood deposited rich silt (fertile soil) on the river's banks, allowing the Egyptians to grow crops.[1] Hapi was greatly celebrated among the Egyptians. Some of the titles of Hapi were "Lord of the Fish and Birds of the Marshes" and "Lord of the River Bringing Vegetation". Hapi is typically depicted as an androgynous figure with a prominent belly and large drooping breasts, wearing a loincloth and ceremonial false beard,[2] depicted in hieroglyphics as an intersex person.''

''Taweret and other closely related goddesses were created from a blending of lion, hippo, crocodile, and human attributes. The three animals were some of the fiercest species found in ancient Egypt and combining their strengths produced a most potent deity and therefore amulet.''

In Ancient Egyptian religion, Taweret is the protective ancient Egyptian goddess of water... "Mistress of Pure Water", and "Lady of the Birth House".

Question. Birth of what?

'Quintessence' to enlarge.

'Big bird'? Ostrich?

Side note: ''Emptyness is a virginal quality which for want of a better word i call 'emptyness'. It is emptyness like the hollow in a reed, open to recieve the breath of the musician ready too utter the song in his heart. An emptyness like that of a hollow in a cup shaped to recieve water or wine. An emptyness like that of a birds nest built in a round warm ring ready to recieve the little bird:'' This is the kind of emtyness she calls 'virginity' - an openness to recieve.'' [Kathleen Nichols / 1st Sunday of Advent {'Emptyness and Openness'} / Star of Wonder / Magdala / Dec 2021:   - taken from the book 'The Reed of God' by Caryll Houslander].

Open aired? i.e., Amarna.

'Reed' huts?

Westward leading still proceeding guide us to......?

''So what shape is that virginal emptyness of our own being; and of what material are we made. Are we reed pipes, are we chalice's or are we nests. Is he waiting to work lyrically through us, does he ask us to be 'sacrificed' in us, or does he desire of us a warm sweet abiding in a domestic life at home.'' [Same].

 

Female figure lightly touching {supporting?}  big male one {'leaning'?}. And/or: 'Little toe of big one = N/W angle of the pylon'. [Page 24].

Nipple? Put the ''images'' together. 'See' anything?

From a different perspective: ''The head stands for the 'Covered Temple' {veil?} the sanctuary of the human body where all the control centers are gathered. It has the same symbolic meaning in the temple....Egyptian figurations carefully mark - with a headband, crown, diadem, or joint - a dividing line for the top of the skull thus separating the crown of the skull.'' [Chapter entitled 'Significance of the Crown of the Skull' : from the book 'The Temple In Man'].

Recall ''all things gathered'' in the tomb of Tut.

Any pine cones?

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 'King' Odysseus journey back to his homeland.

And/or: ''Beloved goddess Isis, come as the scent of the Lotus. Charge {change?} this sacred fire and our hearts with your mystery and magic.''

Any moister in there? '80'?

Blind?

Side note: Jericho {'The City of Palm Trees'}: before the crossover = 'fire' {i.e., ''wilderness years'' i.e., in a 'desert'}. AFTER the crossover = Jericho; root of which in Arabic = ''fragrant'' {soul? i.e., by way of the moon which is also related to same word - THEREFORE Water link}. [Day 20 'Healing of a blind Beggar' - ''outside the city gates of Jericho'' / K. Nichols / Magdala / Sep. 2021].

Question. Thirsty?

N.B. Baptism of Christ with John also took place just 'outside those gates'.

And/or: ''To be sure, twenty is not exactly interesting for mystical or magical pursuits, but on the other hand {left or right one?}, it is extremely important in the formation of number systems. For the simple reason that the fingers and toes add up to 20, this number forms the basis of counting sytems in many cultures. Among the Celts, for eample, 40 is called two times 20. The Ainu, in northern Japan have a very similar way of counting and express, for instance, 80 as 4 times 20, which corresponds exactly to the French quatre-vingts.'' ['Mystery of Numbers' / A. Schimmel].

Raised hands?

Dixon relics. Found in the shafts of the 'Queens'' chamber. Dated 500 years prior to the construction of same. Could there be an error of construction date?  Wooden parts also found.  ''Alchemy'' to enlarge.

End of cycle, beginning of another? Hence: ''Now the gates of Jericho were securely barred {'bolted'?} because of the Israelites. No one went out and no one came in.

Beginning or end of a cycle? Linear A or B?

Then the Lord said to Joshua, “See, I have delivered Jericho into your hands, along with its king and its fighting men. March around the city once with all the armed men. Do this for six days. Have seven priests carry trumpets of rams’ horns in front of the ark. On the seventh day, march around the city seven times, {total therefore of '13'}, with the priests blowing the trumpets.  When you hear them sound a long blast on the trumpets, have the whole army give a loud shout; then the wall of the city will collapse and the army will go up, everyone straight in.” [Joshua 6].

Question. 'Six' = ''gates'' link?

Working example: Colleen Darnell gives a description within the temple of Abu Simbel of a painting of Ramesses { ''a peculiar image''} offering two vases of water to his {higher} self. On a table, similar to the one that the jackel is normally seen resting on {lower}, can be seen food offerings - ''two baskets of fruit'' and the lotus flower. Below the table ''two loaves of bread''. Dividing the picture is the 'Uas' staff {and/or 'Was'}.The conclusion being: ''The temple was built there because Nubia was where the gold was.'' AND/OR: ''This is Ramesses the king, offering to himself as Ramesses the god. To be remembered and worshipped for eternity''. ['Lost Treasures of Egypt: Ramses Rise to Power' / 21.11. 21].

Up river /Down river as a means...?

Leavened or UNleavened? "They examined the residues in the Lindow Man's gut, and concluded that, unlike the Danish bog victims, he had eaten a carefully burned portion of unleavened barley bread, not a coarse porridge or cereal....It did not look as if the burning had been caused by careless cooking {ESR analysis}, it seemed rather to be the result of a deliberate and rapid scorching or searing of a particular part of the cake, possibly after baking. It would appear that the 'cake' could only have been touched quickly with something very hot indeed, almost as if it had been branded." {'The Life and death of a Druid Prince' / A. Ross and D. Robins}.   'Echo' / 'Sealed' / 'Stamped' / 'Passover' to enlarge. Question. Whats the difference between barley and wheat?

A working example: "The alchemical 'gold' symbolises a state of inner transformation which relates to an awareness of one's divine nature, what the alchemists called, among other names, the lapis, or philosophers stone, and Jung termed the Self....Another alchemical symbol for both the prima materia and the lapis is the fish and it occurs in the next dream in association with the process of purification.

It was dreamt by a woman: She was cleaning out a fish tank with dirty water. There is a piece of mercury in the tank that she feels she cannot disturb. While cleaning she finds another fish, places them in a bath and joins them. The fish then have babies and the bath becomes full of 'thousands' of fish: CLEANING out the fish tank suggests the purification of the psyche, which is one of the most fundamental stages of the opus, primary involving work on the shadow....

Back to back? 'H'?

ONCE the individual begins to dig within themselves - to work with the contents of the subconscious - then the alchemical transformation really commences and the unconscious reveals its fertility and abundance: in the dream the self proliferation of the fish echoes the miracle of the loaves and fishes, and the fish can be seen as the 'miraculous food' of the eucharist 'drawn from the deep in order to nourish the needy ones of the earth'. The 'fish' is the nourishing effect of the unconscious, reminding the dreamer that all the necessary energy and understanding lies within herself, born from something humble and overlooked." [Pages 39-51 'The Lover and the Serpent' / Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee].

Hebrews {north} Judah {south}.

''The modern English word "Hebrew" is derived from Old French Ebrau, via Latin from the Ancient Greek Ἑβραῖος (hebraîos) and Aramaic 'ibrāy, all ultimately derived from Biblical Hebrew Ivri (עברי‎), one of several names for the Israelite (Jewish and Samaritan) people (Hebrews). It is traditionally understood to be an adjective based on the name of Abraham's ancestor, Eber, mentioned in Genesis 10:21. The name is believed to be based on the Semitic root ʕ-b-r (עבר‎) meaning "beyond", "other side", "across".

''The Hebrew name for Judah, Yehuda (יהודה), literally "thanksgiving" or "praise," is the noun form of the root Y-D-H (ידה), "to thank" or "to praise."[3] His birth is recorded at Gen. 29:35; upon his birth, Leah exclaims, "This time I will praise the LORD/YHWH," with the Hebrew word for "I will praise," odeh (אודה) sharing the same root as Yehuda.

REFRESHER: "As a rule, the specialist's is a purely masculine mind, an intellect to which fecundity is an alien and unnatural process; therefore it is an especially ill adapted tool for receiving and bringing to birth a 'foreign' spirit. But a greater mind bears the stamp of the feminine; to it is a receptive and fruitful womb {'Venus'?} which can reshape what is strange into a familiar form. Wilhelm possessed in the highest degree the rare charism of spiritual motherhood {'Sophia'?}. To it he owed his as yet unequalled ability to make incomparable translations." [Jung on 'The Secret of the Golden Flower' / R. Wilhelm].

Side note: ''The union with the 'divine' is not the absorption of their being by Divine being, but rather the experience of the breath of Divine love, the illumination of Divine love, and the warmth of Divine love. The SOUL which receives this undergoes such a miraculous experience that it 'cries' - fire meets fire - Nothing is extinguished in the human personality but, on the contrary, everything is set ablaze. This is the experience of 'legitimate twofoldness' or the union of two SEPERATE SUBSTANCES in one sole essence. The 'substances' remain seperate as long as they are bereft of that which is the most precious of all existence: free alliance in 'love'....'' [Page 36 'Meditations on the Tarot'].

Tutankhamun had 'fourteen' of them - most found in an unexpected place: in the Burial Chamber; between the shrines, some standing upright in a corner, most lying flat on the floor....But why?

"...Because a modern man lives in 'sleep' {unknown/unaware link}, what knowledge therefore can a sleeping man have? And if you think about it and at the same time remember that sleep is the chief feature of our being, it will at once become clear to you that if a man really wants knowledge, he must first of all think about how to wake, that is, about how to change his being...Therefore a man who wants to awake must look for other people who also want to awake and work together with them. This, however, is easier said than done because to start such work and to organize it requires a 'knowledge' which an ordinary man cannot possess. The work must be organized and it must have a leader. Only then will it produce the results expected of it..." ['In Search of the Miraculous'. Parenthesis, emphasis, this readers].

The one exception was the City of London, which alone among counties corporate retained a separate lieutenancy and although part of the administrative County of London was also a county of itself for all other purposes. In legislation after 1888 the unqualified use of the term "county" refers to these entities, although the informal term "geographical county" was also used to distinguish them from administrative counties. They were shown on Ordnance Survey maps of the time under both titles, and are equivalent to the modern ceremonial counties.''

[Church of the Primacy of St. Peter: Forgiveness and Mission: Pilgrimage of Grace: Lent 2022].

''The modern structure was built in 1933 and incorporates parts of an earlier 4th century church. At the base of its walls, opposite the main altar, foundations of the 4th century church are visible. In the 9th century, the church was referred to as the Place of the Coals. This name refers to the incident of Jesus' preparation of meal for the apostles, building a charcoal fire on which to cook the fish. Also first mentioned in the year 808 are the "Twelve Thrones", a series of heart shaped stones, which were placed along the shore to commemorate the Twelve Apostles. The church survived longer than any other in the area, finally being destroyed in 1263.[1] The present Franciscan chapel was built on the site in 1933. This church was included in the itineraries of Popes Paul VI and John Paul II during their visits to Israel in 1964 and March 2000 respectively.

Mensa Christi

The church contains a projection of limestone rock in front of the present altar which is venerated as a "Mensa Christi", Latin for table of Christ. According to tradition this is the spot where Jesus is said to have laid out a breakfast of bread and fish for the Apostles, and told Peter to "Feed my sheep" after the miraculous catch, the third time he appeared to them after his resurrection. (John 21:1–24) It is disputed whether this table, or the one enshrined at the nearby Church of the Multiplication, is the one mentioned by the pilgrim Egeria in her narrative of the Holy Land circa 380. There is also another table of Christ enshrined at the Mensa Christi Church in Nazareth.'' [Wiki].

''One of the main highlights of the Church of the Multiplication are its restored 5th-century mosaics. These are the earliest known examples of figurative floor mosaics in Christian art in the Holy Land. The mosaics in the two transepts depict various wetland birds and plants, with a prominent place given to the lotus flower. This flower, which is not indigenous to the area, suggests the artist's use of a Nilotic landscape popular in Roman and Early Byzantine art. All the other motifs depict plants and animals from the Galilee. The mosaic found in front of the altar depicts two fish flanking a basket containing four loaves of bread.''

Recall the dry river beds at Abydos and Petra.

Analogy: ''I was a hidden treasure and wanted {'loved'] to be known''.....Considered as the Essence, God was a Hidden Treasure, a closed and locked chest of jewels {'Coptos'?}. These 'jewels' are the purrfections of existence represented by the divine names and attributes....but not yet manifested {i.e., ''hidden''. Egyptian equivalent = the meaning of the name ''Amun''}. Without a cosmos, the names are undistinguishable....In other words since he possessed all these perfections within himself, he wanted them to be displayed outwardly so that others could see them as well {working example = Imhotep}. In order for these names to be known, there has to be multiplicity, since no name is different from any other name at the level of absolute oneness. Through multiplicity, each name can manifest its own properties as distinct from the properties of the other names. 'Hence i created the creatures that i might be known'....meaning the creatures are the receptacles, places, or loci within which god's names are displayed {'archetypes'?}. All 10000 of them. Without them the Treasure would remain hidden.'' [Page 165-167 {Kindle}'Tao of Islam'].

From a different perspective: ''Not surprisingly, the Golden Shrine's decoration, rich in allusions to the natural world and Hathorian love, finds its echo in the New Kingdom private tomb scenes and love poems strewn with imagery drawn from the MARSHES, hunting, lotus flowers, mandrakes, necklaces, and other amulets.' Hathor-Sekhmets rage and radiance {Magdalene?} pervade the chase of all youthful lovers seeking her golden blessings....Yet at the same time, there is a certain restraint running through the shrines intensity. For this is a hidden eroticism, completely veiling the couples relationship in the secret symbols of love - tender looks, the exchange of jewels {Coptos?}, the ritual gesture, the underlying word play and coded imagery, which all contribute to a refined symbolic language of royal love....the enactment of the New Years ritual 'sacred marriage' ceremonies.''

"As Norton wrote; 'Also they wrote; not every man to teach, but to show themselves by secret speech; whereby each of his fellows were made certain; how to them he was a brother, for each of them understood another'. In this we get a hint of a secret brotherhood, much like the Rosicrucians, whose manifestos included the 'Chemical Wedding', one of the most significant allegorical tales of the initiatory system, published in 1616...Mclean suggests that this alchemical work embodies the Rosicrucianism that is the esoteric philosophy lying at the heart of Western Hermeticism which provides a path for the balancing and integration of the masculine and feminine aspects of our souls..."{ Extract from 'The Alchemical Amphitheatre' by M. Katz} - and/or "All those who were fond of the combinations and multiplications of the 4 elements and the 4 in general, as the number of orderly arrangement in time and space, have used 16 as the 'empowered' 4 to express 'perfection' - suffice it to mention the 4x4 philosophical elements of the Rosicrucians..."

''The word Morocco is derived from the name of the city of Marrakesh, which was its capital under the Almoravid dynasty, the Almohad Caliphate, and the Saadian dynasty.[24] The origin of the name Marrakesh is disputed,[25] but it most likely comes from the Berber phrase amur n Yakuš, where amur can have the meanings "part, lot, promise, protection"[26] and Yakuš (and its variants Yuš and Akuš) means "God".[27] The expression amur n Ṛebbi where Ṛebbi is another word for God (borrowed from Arabic رَبِّي (rabbī) "My Lord") means "divine protection".[28] The modern Berber name for Marrakesh is Mṛṛakc (in the Berber Latin script). In Turkish, Morocco is known as Fas, a name derived from its ancient capital of Fes. However, in other parts of the Islamic world, for example in Egyptian and Middle Eastern Arabic literature before the mid-20th century, the name commonly used to refer to Morocco was Murrakush.''

Side note: ''It is called a 'king pair' if the batsman gets out for a golden duck (getting out on the first ball he faced) in both innings. The name originates from the two noughts together being thought to resemble a pair of spectacles; the longer form is occasionally used.''

Isis was the great redeemer in this mystery, but her part is as hard to understand as that of Osiris..." ['Her-Bak: Egyptian Initiate']. Question. Why West?

Any '153'?

And/or: ''So, not only does the 153 big fishes refer to the 153000 constructors of the first temple, it also means "a very large unknown number". This is also coherent with the first observation of one of the apostles when looking inside the net: there was a multitude of fishes. But why the FIRST temple of Solomon?''

RESIDENT ALIENS EMPLOYED IN THE WORK

(2 Chronicles vv.17-18)

Any gentiles?

Carrying poles. From 'abroad'?

''Gentiles from outside Israel were willing to help in the building of Israel's temple, but there were also Gentiles residing in the land. They were not left unemployed, but employed by Solomon in the work of the temple. In numbering these, Solomon found a total of 153,000. This may seem a large number for whom to find work, and specially when it involved the erection of only two buildings. But the size and the elaborate details of these buildings required such numbers. We may think of construction methods today not requiring such numbers, but the labour at that time was all hand labour, which is much slower and more arduous work than that of present-day construction. 70,000 of these Gentiles were to bear burdens, which would include the carrying of lumber from Joppa to Jerusalem and the carrying of stone from the quarries to the site of the temple and Solomon's house. 80,000 were employed as stone-cutters in the mountains. Of course, these worked in shifts. The remaining 3,600 were used as supervisors of the work (v.18).''

Question. Baktum = 144000 days.  The ''foundation'' of something?

''All 'children' were bequeathed eternal life from the frog goddess Heket. The ancient Egyptian hieroglyph for 100,000 was the tadpole turning into a frog...." [Page 60 'The Union of Isis and Thoth' / N. Ellis and N. Scully].

Question 2. Which pharaoh was identified with the ''west'' ?

How many millions do you need - to convince the girls to come out and play?  Team players? Are they ever seen at any charity functions? No talent?

''Truth the ancient Egyptians said, appeared in multiples, the way the desert was composed of a million grains of sand. The mummy like one of the sacred onions buried with it, was a reminder that the eternal soul passed through layers of the self, body after body, manifestation after manifestation.'' [Page 140 'Dreams of Isis'].

And/or: ''Onion is the Latin for large pearl.'' ['The Chase' / 2018].

A work in progress: ''Scorpion stings and snake bites would have been a common hazard in ancient Egypt and would have required prompt attention. The Brooklyn Papyrus is concerned exclusively with such bites and stings and includes local measures such as the 'knife treatment', which probably invovled incising the wound to release tissue fluid and limit the absorption of the venom.....In addition almost 100 prescriptions of herbal origin. Onion is the commonest ingredient of these remedies, probably because of its ability to repel snakes. The sulfonic acid present in onions  - the same chemical that causes tears when onions are chopped - has a deterrent effect on snakes.''

Practical example: ''The Cathedral of Vasily the Blessed (Russian: Собо́р Васи́лия Блаже́нного, tr. Sobór Vasíliya Blazhénnogo), commonly known as Saint Basil's Cathedral, is an Orthodox church in Red Square of Moscow, and is one of the most popular cultural symbols of Russia. The building, now a museum, is officially known as the Cathedral of the Intercession of the Most Holy Theotokos on the Moat, or Pokrovsky Cathedral.[5] It was built from 1555 to 1561 on orders from Ivan the Terrible and commemorates the capture of Kazan and Astrakhan. It was the city's tallest building until the completion of the Ivan the Great Bell Tower in 1600.

''Prior to the eighteenth century, the Russian Orthodox Church did not assign any particular symbolism to the exterior shape of a church. Nevertheless, onion domes are popularly believed to symbolise burning candles.''

Going west?

Side note: ''Osiris cult was established at Abydos, where he was called Lord of death or Lord of the Westerners, meaning those who had ''gone west'' into death's sunset land. He was incarnate in a succession of sacred kings who seem to have served as sacrificial victims. Their bodies were divided up {'14' or '16'?} and distributed to different parts of the country....Like the head of Orpheus on Lesbos, the head of Osiris was preserved in the temple at Abydos which served as an oracle: information/knowledge on the after-world. The shrine had a sacred well called Pega or Peq, the original home of the Pega nymphs who guarded the oracular well of Pirene in Corinth...'' [Page 751 Same book].

Best foot forward? 'Octave' link?

''Sixteen is a number of perfect measure and wholeness. In the Roman system 1 foot, pes, was formed by adding 4 palms, and each palm or breadth of the hand measured 4 fingers. Thus the foot was 16 fingers.....In many languages there is a break after 16, as there is after 4.'' [Page 216 'Mystery of Numbers' / A. Schimmel].

Something 'new'?

Side note: ''The Maria Skłodowska-Curie Museum (Polish: Muzeum Marii Skłodowskiej-Curie) is a museum in Warsaw, Poland, devoted to the life and work of Polish double Nobel laureate Maria Skłodowska-Curie (1867–1934), who discovered the chemical elements polonium and radium.

The Maria Skłodowska-Curie Museum is a cultural institution of the city of Warsaw, co-organized with the Polish Chemical Society. It carries on educational and cultural programs related to Maria Skłodowska-Curie and her family. [1]

The Museum stands at 16 Freta Street (ulica Freta 16) in Warsaw's "New Town" district (dating from the 15th century), and is housed in the 18th-century tenement house in which Maria Skłodowska was born.''

''So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty three of them, and although there were so many, the net was not torn." [John 21:11].

"...No more is it true that the mystical impulse from the end of the 13th and into the 17th century was purely and simply a reaction against the 'dry intellectualism' of scholasticism. No the flowering of mysticism during this epoch was the fruit and result of scholasticism, prefigured in the spiritual biography of St. Thomas Aquinas himself...The believing thinker thus became a 'seeing mystic'. And this transformation did not take place in spite of his work of scholastic thought, but rather thanks to it - as its fruit and crowning glory." [Extract from the book by Tomber 'Letter 19' ]. Represented - as in the Greek case - with the word ''Apollo''.

A working example: ''A flower war or flowery war (Nahuatl languages: xōchiyāōyōtl, Spanish: guerra florida) was a ritual war fought intermittently between the Aztec Triple Alliance and its enemies from the "mid-1450s to the arrival of the Spaniards in 1519."[1] Enemies included the city-states of Tlaxcala, Huejotzingo, and Cholula in the Tlaxcala-Pueblan Valley in central Mexico.[1] In these wars, participants would fight according to a set of conventions.[2]

During the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire, Tlaxcala allied with the Spaniards against the Aztecs, being eager to see their longtime flower war enemies overthrown

Texcocan nobleman Ixtlilxochitl gives the "fullest early statement concerning the origin as well as the initial rationale" of the flower war.[4] From 1450 to 1454, the Aztecs had suffered from crop failure and severe drought; this led to famine and many deaths in the central Mexican highlands.[4] Ixtlilxochitl reports that the flower war began "as a response" to the famine.''

The ''multiplication'' of which is very important....John and Mark chapter SIX speaks about the same thing: 'Come to a lonely place and rest awhile' {'Foremost of the Westerners'?}. i.e., Capernaum is where the ''multiplication'' actually took place near the 'bay' on the edge/point {'peninsula'?} of same.

And/or..."It seems unlikely that anyone in our day would be able to explain the deeper meaning of 17, and yet this number was quite important in the ancient Near East. The local god of Urartu, the area around Mount Ararat, received a seventeen fold sacrifice, and perhaps 17 spread out from there into adjacent countries. In the Bible it is connected to the flood, which began on the seventeenth day of the 2nd month and lasted till the seventeenth day of the 7th month. At that point, Noah had reached Mount Ararat...The traditional 'magic' square around the 'five' produces 17 in the lower left corner [S/W? - this readers input] and 28 [the typical Islamic moon number] in the remaining numbers...It is also the number of the words, in the call to prayer...The subsequent Islamic tradition, especially among the Shiites, discovered even more distinctive qualities of 17. The sum total of all the rak'at {the cycles of prayer movements in the five daily prayers} amounts to 17. Some sufis imagined that the greatest name of god consisted of 17 letters...In Christian tradition, the number appears, if at all, as a combination of the 10 commandments with the 7 gifts {10+7} of the Holy Spirit, described by St. Augustine as a 'mirabile sacramentum'. Seventeen then forms the basis for the speculations about the number 153. It also seems likely that the combination of 'lex et gratia', i.e.,Law and Grace, as found in the 17 underlies the whole structure of the magnificent Golden Evangeliar made for King Heinrich III in the eleventh century, as Rathofer as shown...In classical antiquity 17 appears in connection with warfare and heroism...Popular Turkish legends, such as the tales of Abu Muslim or Malik Danishmand, mentions 17 wars; and often 17 hero's are slain, or the leading hero receives 17 'wounds'..."

Question. Was the body moved somewhere else? Joseph and Co? {recall who owned the tomb}.

Question 2. Can it therefore be FOUND? Who will be found with him?

John 19:41

Side note {analogy?}: "An ancient prayer reads: 'Hail, ye net inverters, fishers and catchers of the spirit which alone nourishes. By refining your higher selves, ye have produced that which produced you'. Again that familiar theme: discover yourselves and you discover god. It is not strange that the imagery here echo's that of Christ's 'I will make you fishers of men' {Mark, Chap. 1, 17}. Which can be read as meaning - those that follow the way will find themselves, and in themselves find god." [Page 32 'The Western Way'. Vol 2].

A side step: "...Muhammad was at first both frightened by the intensity of the experience and doubtful of its validity. He confided in his wife, Khadija, who supported him during the crisis brought on by these powerful experiences. The continued eruption of the revelations in the end convinced him of their truth, and in 612 he began his public prophetic mission. According to tradition, in the year 617 or 619 {i.e.,''5'' or ''7'' years}, partly in answer to the doubts of unbelievers, the Prophet was taken up into 'Heaven' in a 'Celestial Ascent' called 'Miraj'. This event, mentioned briefly and allusively in the Quran {17:1}, was to become the archetypal mystical experience in Islam...From the beginning {after his 'return'?} the Prophet began to attract followers. They were convinced by the sudden transformation of an otherwise unremarkable, though honest and good man, by the 'incredible eloquence of his language' in a culture where the importance of the mastery of language cannot be over estimated, and 'by the recognition that his message was something they had always known but somehow had stopped taking seriously'...The Prophet said that the Quran has seven levels of meaning, and the last and highest is known only to 'God'.

The autumn equinox was also a sacred time in stellar {'vertical'?} terms; it coincided with the rising of the star Spica {enlarged elsewhere} before dawn.

An objective eye. Blink and miss?

Side note: ''An ugly blinking fish could hold the secret to how ancient animals evolved the ability to live on land, a new study has found. Mudskippers, a subfamily of fish that live both on land and in the water, are the only fish that can blink, and they evolved this ability independently from our ancestors — a concept known as convergent evolution. Scientists think that blinking evolved in land animals when they made the transition from the oceans roughly 375 million years ago. Therefore, studying this example of convergent evolution has offered clues as to how our primordial ancestors first took to Earth's shores.''

The cross represents a 'static' {S/W?} matrix of energies, the circle a 'dynamic' expression of energies {S/E?} within that matrix. Both circle and cross are expressions of the initiating, creative spirit that is represented by the point at the common center of both cross and circle...That central point is also expressed as an 'altar'...And the altar is often also a formal four-square object.

This 'form' contains, in geometrical symbolism, the figure ten {10+ ? } in the number of its square faces {two to each rectangular side and one each above and below}...In masonic symbolism this duality is expressed by the square and compass. The square marks out the cross; the compass, the circle. This finds another expression in the heavens and the earth. The heavens are associated with circular movement {12+5? and/or N/S? and/or 'Macro' ? }, for that is what the stars describe to all who watch them from the earth. The earth is associated with the straight line {10+7? and/or E/W? and/or 'Micro' ? } - the measuring out of land {'Running the Fields'? i.e.,Sed Jubilee link? } - and the straight line that is given by a plumb bob or pendulum, or a falling object, that by the force of gravity makes a direct path toward the center of the earth."

And/or: "On the path of individuation, not only is there the duality of the ego and shadow, but also the awareness of the contrasexual aspect of the psyche, and animus and anima. And, for the seeker after ultimate truth, there is the most important DUALITY, that of ego and Self; the sense of individual identity and the Reality in which there is no 'I', only Oneness....The best way to reach Him is to renounce the self and just walk in a straight way. The ego belongs to the world of duality, and if one is to experience His Unity, one must transcend the ego. The ego must be continually sacrificed, the Wayfarer follow His Will, and not the desires of the ego. Here the psychological and spiritual directions are different, for psychological individuation aims towards an intergrated, balanced ego, while the Sufi seeks a world beyond the ego. But before the ego can be transcended, the individual must experience the tension between the opposites....." [Page 16 'The Lover and the Serpent' ].

'Spirit' or 'Soul'?

Side step: Return to Zai Tun: "In a city, which comprises an area of eleven thousand square kilometers, there are more than six thousand temples where more than five hundred gods of different religions are worshipped, co-existing with each other. For almost one thousand years, this is a city where various religious beliefs are strongly held in the same place. Meanwhile, more than 10000 vessels are anchored at the port. Merchants, missionaries and sailors from West Asia, Africa and Europe gather on the docks, trading the goods that they are proud of. Here is one of the biggest trading stations in the world in the Middle Ages, and the business model adopted here leads the world. This is Quanzhou, the city of light."

Continued: "The spiritual path is not an escape from this world, but a highly dynamic journey through it. And as Jung suggests, it is through being 'tossed back and forth', through experiencing this conflict, that one reaches the 'liberation from opposites' - the STILL center of the pendulum....Because here between the opposites lie all the possibilities of growth...." {same book}.

Mountain low, valley high.

Practical example: "I was doing my PHD in India and was so happy that someday i would be called Doctor Masood Khalili. The first in our family. One evening i got a call from my father who asked what i was doing. I told him about the PHD. He asked why i was focused on something for myself when the country was being invaded by the communists - whose people were now fighting for freedom. Do you love your land? he asked. Your home? Yes i replied. Then come back home and join your people. Fight for freedom. Get your PHD from the mountains of Afghanistan, from the university of people. After a week i was in those mountains. I loved this country when i was seven, and i will love this country at seventy. Love does not need logic - it needs sacrifice." ['Afghanistan: The Wounded Land' / S1 EP1].

"Christ is a symbol of psychological wholeness: he embraced both Mary the Virgin, and Mary Magdalene, the whore. But, in order to realise one's wholeness, it is first necessary to encounter the opposites, a process referred to in the alchemical opus as the 'separatio'. In Christian symbolism this state is imaged by the crucifixion: whoever finds himself on the path of individuation cannot evade that suspension between the opposites which is symbolized by the crucifixion."

For a deeper head scratch, why does the number ''thirteen'' seem significant within the life of the author of 'Mind to Mind'. Possible synchronistic link? If so, what would that imply?

xxxxAnalogy of same?..."As the late, great H.P Lovecraft might begin this narrative: It is now nearly 13 years since the ill fated day when i first began investigating the terrible legends surrounding the enigmatic Bavarian Illuminati, an alleged conspiracy that some people believe rules the world. Like a Lovecraft hero, i embarked on my research with no suspicion of the perils awaiting me: i thought i was just investigating a notable case of political paranoia and expected to find only some insight into the psychology which causes otherwise sane individuals to subscribe to such absurdly ridiculous conspiracy theories." [First paragraph, first page, first chapter of the book 'The Cosmic Trigger'. Mentioned elsewhere].

A working example {i.e., something hinted at}: ''Coming towards the great slab of a standing stone, i saw someone detach themselves from its shadow and face me, as if waiting. It was Pluto. He was not the first person i wished to see. However, since i couldn't very well ignore him in all that space - and since the stone provides a natural stop in the landscape - i leaned against it and bid him good morning, before turning away and surveying the view. He remained standing a few feet behind me....'' [Page 286 'Mercurius' / P. Harpur].

And/or: 'In his Twelve Keys, Basil Valentine identified the Soul or Spirit of the World with an earth spirit which is life itself {that ''bit''?}, endowing all created things with strength, yet itself as intangible and invisible {he says} as the reflection in a mirror. It is of course found in 'our earth' - the prima material - and is the 'root of all bodies', or substances, necessary to the Art. When i was a better churchman i used to think of it as the Holy Ghost; now i think of him as Mercurius. But i also think of her - especially when i lean my back against the Blind Dancer and watch the spring perform her annual transformation - as the Immagination of Nature.'' [Page 305 'Mercurius' / P. Harpur].

An accidental CRACK?. Or a split between two 'divisions'?  ''I felt a trifle uneasy, propped against the stone, but Bradley didn't seem to notice. He continued talking in the same musing tone.

''The tumulus, which in many ways resembles a pyramid {i.e., pyr='fire'}, is one of Turkeys most famous monuments: they like to refer to it as the EIGHTH wonder of the ancient world.

[ Chapter 3, 'The Sacred Bee'].

Esprit?

Exercise. Apply the above to get some SENSE of the following {as one example}: ''Across the title page of the first edition of Le Comte de Cabalis, published in Paris in the year 1670, runs the cryptic phrase from Tertuillian: 'When a thing is hidden away with so much pains; merely to reveal it, is to destroy it.' - suggesting to the mind that there is a concealed mystery. Hungry souls, heeding these words, have sought and found the esprit and sparkle of its pages a clue to that truth which all the world will someday seek.'' [Back cover to the book 'Comte De Gabalis' / Abbe N. De Montfaucon de Villars].

He then follows with directions on how to use, and what to expect, from the word squares set out in each chapter in Book Four." [Extract taken from the chapter entitled 'Word Squares' from the book 'The Book of Abramelin' by Von Worms']. Try ''three'' in relation to ''four''.

Side note: Why should the zodiac have 12 signs?...All we can say is that the twelve fold division is the product of a division that going back to Pythagoras and Plato, {Homer?} and beyond them to a still more ancient type of thinking. The universe was considered as a dodecahedron {a 12 surface solid} inscribed in a sphere. The number 12 is most significant in ancient and modern numerology, as being the product of four and three ...deals essentially with Form; and Form is the product of number." [Page 11, 'The Zodiac and the Universal Matrix'].

From a different perspective: ''The Church of Saint George was carved downwards from a type of volcanic tuff. This is the sole architectural material that was used in the structure. It has been dated to the late 12th or early 13th century AD, and thought to have been constructed during the reign of King Gebre Mesqel Lalibela, of the late Zagwe dynasty. It is among the best known and last built of the eleven churches in the Lalibela area, and has been referred to as the “Eighth Wonder of the World”. Lalibela, King of Ethiopia, sought to recreate Jerusalem, and structured the churches’ landscape and religious sites in such a way as to achieve such a feat. According to legend it took 'twentyfour' years to complete and at night the work was carried on by 'angels'. The churches at Lalibela are clustered in TWO major groups, one representing the earthly Jerusalem, and the other representing the heavenly Jerusalem. Located directly between them is a trench representing the River Jordan. The dimensions of the trench are 25 meters (82ft) by 25 meters (82ft) by 30 meters (98ft), and there is a small baptismal pool outside the church, which stands in an artificial trench.'' N.B. 'Five' + 'six' = 'eleven'. And/or: The Sphinx also 'hollowed' out. North = 'Stone' {inner}. South = 'metal' {exterior}? Carapace?

A working example: Few things are as intriguing as the hundred or so Roman dodecahedrons—12-sided hollow objects—that archaeologists have discovered throughout the years. We know next to nothing about these mysterious objects, other than they have been found in what is now Switzerland, eastern France, southern Germany, and the Low Countries. But other than that? It’s anyone’s guess.

Roman dodecahedrons—more properly called Gallo-Roman dodecahedrons—are 12-sided hollow objects, each side pentagonal in shape and almost always contain a hole. The outer edges generally feature rounded protrusions.

Most of the objects are made from bronze, but some are in stone and don’t have holes or knobs. The dodecahedrons are often fist-sized yet can vary in height from about 1.5 to 4.5 inches (4 to 11 centimeters). The size of the holes also varies, from 0.2 to 1.5 inches (6 to 40 millimeters). Two opposing holes typically are of differing sizes.

Objects of this type were unknown until the first one was found in 1739 in Aston, Hertfordshire. In all, at least 116 have been dug up from sites as far apart as northern England and Hungary. But most have been found in Gaul, particularly in the Rhine basin, in what is now Switzerland, eastern France, southern Germany, and the Low Countries. Some were found in coin hoards, indicating their owners considered them valuable. Most can be dated to the 2nd and 3rd centuries A.D.

Some were found in coin hoards, indicating their owners considered them valuable. Most can be dated to the 2nd and 3rd centuries A.D.

No mention of the dodecahedrons from Roman times has survived. Any theory as to their function is based solely on speculation....Intriguingly, archaeologists in the 1960s found similar objects along the Maritime Silk Road in Southeast Asia, except smaller and made of gold. They do not appear to predate the Gallo-Roman artefacts and may be evidence of Roman influence on the ancient Indochinese kingdom of Funan.''

''Numbers show us that there is a harmony, a necessary sequence of facts and factors. Multiplication is never situated BEFORE division, just as addition can never precede this division and situates itself between division and multiplication." [Page 107 'The Egyptian Miracle: An Introduction to the Wisdom of the Temple' / R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz].

Analogy {i.e., something hinted at}: ''Although many authors envision no limit to this exaltation, we think that with some other philosophers that it would be unwise, at least as far as transmutation and medicine are concerned, to go beyond the 7th reiteration. This is the reason why Jean Lallemant and the Adept of Dampierre have only represented seven spheres or chestnuts on the motifs about which we speak. Unlimited for the speculative philosophers, the multiplication is however limited for practical considerations. The more the stone progresses the more penetrating it becomes and the quicker its elaboration; at each stage of augmentation, it only requires the eighth of the time required for the preceding operation.'' [Page 384 'The Dwellings of the Philosophers' / Fulcanelli].

Limited/UNlimited in relation to Long Way or Short Way as a means....?

Hermopolis?

And/or: ''And so the matter destroyed, mortified, then recomposed into a new body, thanks to the secret fire which is aroused by the one of the furnace, gradually raises itself with the help of multiplications, up to the perfection of the pure fire, veiled under the figure of the immortal phoenix'' [Page 387. Same book].

Right or left hand? Dark or light? And/or: ''Where did the term turning the light around begin?'' [Chapter headed 'Turning the Light Around and Keeping to the Centre' FROM the book 'The Secret of the Golden Flower' / T. Cleary].

A working example {if only from the Egyptian perspective}: ''The mystery of Khonsu plays a prominent role at Thebes....This Khonsu is somehow a new, spiritualised  Atum, and this one will make Horus appear in all his glory {'boat of glass'?}....His symbols comprise all the scepters tied together, with the exception of the wadj, the sign of opening, an expansion that only Thoth of Khemenu {Hermopolis} can bring about. As crown, Khonsu wears a disc on a crescent, the representation of both New Moon and of eclipse, Moon and Sun united.'' [Page 196 'Sacred Science' / R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz].

Something hinted at: ''Initiation is a kind of trial death, for in old days the candidate would be shut in a tomb {sarcophagus?}, or buried in a sealed vault {'kings' chamber?} for several days {Sed Festival?} or nights until he had a revelation, or the goddess of rebirth appeared to him and led him back to the light.'' [Page 72 'The Path Through the Labyrinth' / M. Green].

Moonlight?

 

And/or: ''The moon's protective symbol, in the form of a horses head or a horseshoe, still appears on brass pendants, which are worn by our cart and draught horses. Many are just a sickle moon itself. Some importance may have been attached to the fact that when a simple representation of the moon is displayed, the horns are upward; when the symbol is a horseshoe the horns are placed downwards. One may attract the general bounty of the moon, while the other has more to do with the fertility aspect. An occasional brass may display a fish on its disc...not a Christian symbol but that of the moon goddess Astarte....The white horse was one of her symbols, and you must call it grey so as not to speak to her directly. If you see a grey horse, you can ask the moon for a wish, but you must do so before you think of the horses tail. Not only would it be disrespectful to think of that 'end' - it would also be useless if the goddess were turning her face from you.'' [Page 123 'GogMagog: The Buried Gods' / T. C. Lethbridge].

'Shades of Grey'?

'Horse blinkers' at Amarna?

''Sunshades''?

A working example: ''The sun shines at SUNRISE through Stonehenge - on the 21st June {summer solstice} from the N/E DOWN THE CAUSEWAY towards S/W- with the horseshoe in the middle facing the sun , {i.e., DOWNWARDS}. The winter solstice however is a complete REVERSAL. In December AT the winter SUNSET it shines from the opposite direction towards the horseshoe in the middle {facing UPWARDS}. This is probably the most important event of the two. Nowhere else does this happen anywhere with any other stone monuments. It only happens ''at the latitude of Stonehenge''. {i.e., midsummer sunset also matches midwinter sunrise, N/W - S/E}.'' [Malcolm Coe / Mirthy / Oct. 2022].

Question. What about the Equinoxes?

And/or: 'The 'rose' that blooms at the center of the 'cross' = Beaker People?

And/or: ''Ptolemy decided to regularize the distribution of the signs between the four 'elements' {fire, earth, air and water} and the three 'qualities'....The three qualities were derived from Ptolemies system of measuring the zodiac from the solstices and equinoxes. The most important signs were those that followed on the cardinal points, and were called Cardinal; they were said to act of themselves. Next came the Fixed signs, which were 'stable' rather than active, and finally the Mutable or Common signs, which depended on the action of others {synchronistic?}. The 'Virgin' is one of these....'' [Page 41 'The Origin of the Zodiac' / R. Gleadow].

Coincidence or a meaningful one?

Eight strands each. Sixtyfour in total.

As is: ''The text is an inventory of sixtyfour locations; 63 of which are treasures of 'gold' and 'silver', which have been estimated in the tons. For example, one single location described on the copper scroll describes 900 talents (868,000 troy ounces) of buried gold. Tithing vessels are also listed among the entries, along with other vessels, and three locations featured scrolls. One entry apparently mentions priestly vestments. The final listing points to a duplicate document with additional details. That other document has not been found.'' [Wiki. Emphasis, this readers].

Left or right eye?

A working example: ''When Horus lost his 'eye' to Set, the god Djehuti {'wisdom'} - found it and turned it into the 'Moon'. When the parts of the eye are added up it gives the answer 63/64 which approximate the whole number 1. One is the number which symbolises oneness, wholeness, all sight, all knowing, the Absolute...."

From a different perspective: ''As an emblem of the first matter, the beehive can often be seen in decorations that borrow their elements from the science of Hermes. We have seen it on the ceiling of the Hotel Lallemant and among the panels of the alchemical stove of Winterthur. It also occupies one of the squares of the Game of the Goose, a popular representation of the labyrinth of the secret Art and collection of the main hieroglyphs of the Great Work....The Game of the Goose also sounds like the Game of the Law in French - could be compared to snake and ladders. There is a spiral drawn on a board resembling the labyrinth on the floor of the Cathedral of Chartres - with 63 boxes. The idea is to get to the center of the spiral.'' [Page 395 'The Dwellings of the Philosophers' / Fulcanelli].

Question. How many ''boxes'' were found under the middle 'bed' in the tomb of Tutankhamun?

Look carefully. Nothing haphazard. Everything stacked LEFT TO RIGHT. The ''golden child'' looking out from beneath - in the same direction.

''Initiation into spiritual life is the process of learning an art of living {by way of that universal ''bit''?} - which leads to freedom even while involved in the world. Your goal is to become as the lotus which rises up from the muddy waters, able to exist in the world without being soiled by it....Spiritual realization requires sustained effort over a period of time....directed towards overturning the mountainous creations {'Giants'?}  which the mind has produced in the past due to ignorance. The mind is like a river; Ignorant ideas are like logs, rocks, branches and dams - which block , divert or distort the {natural?} flow of water {river cataracts?]. With the correct understanding and disciplines - the obstacles can be removed allowing the river of the mind to flow freely toward the ocean of self discovery." [Page 30 'Egyptian Book of the Dead' / M. Ashby].

'River' and 'Seas' as a means...?

Side note: Two serpents inscriptions found near the oldest harbour in the world - carved on large ''monumental stone blocks'' - 40 miles east of the Sphinx - a few miles away from the 'Reed Sea'. Those large stones used to seal the openings of caverns which contained among other things {i.e., vats/vases / and the OLDEST papyrus found anywhere in the world} - wooden ship remains. Chambers manmade with high ceilings - cube shaped - called ''underground boatyards'' - identified as belonging to Khufu {who is identified ''with the ram''} - simply because same inscription found on his pyramid at Giza - ''King Khufu brings 'it eats two snakes'. The narrator concludes that this is the translation of what was probably at the head of the ships  prow. ['Blowing up History: Egypts Sunken Treasures' / 24.1. 21].

Ship in excess of 1000 parts found buried next to GT. Pyramid. Made of cedar. Ropes wet when first found. Mud remains found. Back of boat = east. Front = west.

''Many paths lead to the summit of insight; but it is essential to choose the right one. A person well versed in esoteric practices can say much about these paths that may seem peculiar to the uninitiated. For example, we may have advanced quite far along the esoteric way; we may be standing {''upright''?}, as it were on the threshold, where soul eyes and spirit ears open {Sais and/or Abydos?}. Then we are lucky enough to take a trip across the ocean. Seeing the sea calm or stormy, as the case may be, the scales fall from the eyes of the soul - and suddenly we are able to see....'' [ Page 93 'How to Know Higher Worlds' / Rudolf Steiner].

''Carapace'' and/or ''open entrance''?

Working example: ''Akhenaten's god could be accessed directly , through the open temple roof. The benben - a solar cult object {pyramid shape therefore 'fire' link i.e., 'pyr'} - associated with Ra of Heliopolis since the start of the dynastic age - offered an alternative focus of worship. Over the centuries the benben had varied in appearance from temple to temple, it might be a cone or pyramid shaped structure, an obelisk, a boulder or even a meteorite. The Amarna benben has not survived, but images in the elite tombs suggest that it was a large, round topped stela which stood on a raised platform next to a large statue of a seated Akhenaten.''

Side note: ''NEW ORLEANS -- The New Orleans World's Fair has inspired an exhibition about the place in American history of the French king Louis XIV. It is one of the the nation's major cultural events for 1984....A must for fair-goers with an interest in art and the Colonial period when France ruled Louisiana, 'The Sun King: Louis XIV and the New World' opened at the Cabildo building on Jackson Square in the French Quarter April 29. It will be on exhibit there until Nov. 18. 'We're trying to tell the story of a great man, for whom Louisiana is named, whose rule fostered an environment of intense creativity and artistic achievement,' explained Robert R. MacDonald, director of the Louisiana State Museum. 'This is a humanistic exhibition.'' ['New York Times'].

S/E as a start point.

''Louisiana was named after Louis XIV, King of France from 1643 to 1715. When René-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle claimed the territory drained by the Mississippi River for France, he named it La Louisiane.[22] The suffix –ana (or –ane) is a Latin suffix that can refer to "information relating to a particular individual, subject, or place." Thus, roughly, Louis + ana carries the idea of "related to Louis." Once part of the French colonial empire, the Louisiana Territory stretched from present–day Mobile Bay to just north of the present–day Canada–United States border, including a small part of what are now the Canadian provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan.''

Artsists conception of Watson Brake, an archaeological site in Ouachita Parish, Louisiana that dates from the Archaic period. The oldest earthwork in North America, it was built and occupied 3500 BCE, approximately 5400 years ago.

''The area of Louisiana is the place of origin of the Mound Builders culture during the Middle Archaic period, in the 4th millennium BC. The sites of Caney and Frenchman's Bend have been securely dated to 5600–5000 BP (about 3700–3100 BC), demonstrating that seasonal hunter-gatherers from around this time organized to build complex earthwork constructions in what is now northern Louisiana. The Watson Brake site near present-day Monroe has an eleven-mound complex, it was built about 5400 BP (3500 BC).[23] These discoveries overturned previous assumptions in archaeology that such complex mounds were built only by cultures of more settled peoples who were dependent on maize cultivation. The Hedgepeth Site in Lincoln Parish is more recent, dated to 5200–4500 BP (3300–2600 BC).''

As a working {hypothetical?} example: ''In closing the introduction of this study of zodiacal signs we should ask the reader to remember that these studies will consider the zodiac as a fundamental factor in astrological interpretation; as an actual 'field' {i.e., EGYPTIAN equivalent = ''running the fields''?} of structuring energies surrounding and pervading the earth and all its inhabitants. We shall see zodiacal signs as definite types of energies {as an example}...the Sun, when passing through a zodiacal 'sign', acts in a way, any other planet acts. It is merely the central planet, the most powerful agent acting upon the electromagnetic field of the Earth. Thus when the sun is at 'birth' in {say, Taurus}, the organic functions represented in any organism by Taurus can be considered as those receiving the largest share of vital energy and commanding the native's strongest powers of attention. The 'Taurus' function is shown to be the central function of the organism - and NOTHING more.'' [Page 15 'The Zodiac and the Universal Matrix' / Dane Rudhyar].

Continued: "The Maya developed a complete complex writing system, 1 of only 5 in the history of the world. It is composed of over 800 symbols called hieroglyphs. They wrote on paper made from the inner bark of the fig tree covered with lime plaster, using lime based pigments. These codices could reach up to 22 feet long, and were folded accordion style, making pages. In the 16th century, the Spanish burned every codex they could find, along with anyone who could read or write. By the 18th century, all knowledge of the script was lost. Of the prolific output of the ancient Maya scribes, only 3 examples survive to the present day. Today's Maya are completely cut off from the written words of their ancestors, since all 3 are held captive in Europe. All are in poor condition as they have not been well cared for...

...Fortunately, Maya writing is also found carved in stone. One of the best examples was found by Jose Calderon when he stumbled on the jungle city of Palenque, Mexico in 1746. He found the 3 carved panels in the Temple of the Inscriptions, which contain a total of 640 glyphs. John Lloyd Stevens found, and bought, Copan, Honduras, in 1839. That fifty dollar purchase included the Hieroglyphic Stairway, where its 2200 glyphs make it the longest pre-Colombian stone inscription in all the Americas.

And/or: "The planet 'Jupiter' called the ''greater fortune'' is complementary to Venus the ''lessor fortune'', just as the direction West is complementary to East. West is the place of the sunset, and it consequently represents the completion of enterprises, just as East symbolises their beginnings. A man is said to be 'successful' when he has all the details of his enterprise in his ''grasp'' {Kaph}….The old astrologers held that Jupiter's influence in the horoscope does not become strong until after middle life, when the sun of personal existence has passed noon zenith and is moving towards 'Wealth' and 'Poverty'; these are the extremes of worldly fortune, the outward and visible signs of a means 'grasp' of circumstances {'gathering'?}. When Jupiter is well-aspected in a horoscope that grasp is strong. When it is ill-aspected that grasp is weak." [Page 92 of the book by P. F. Case. Vol 1].

"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].

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

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

A mind set?

And/or: " The horizon is the line of awareness {manifest?}. It is so according to the most obvious logic of symbolical significance; for it differentiates the two most fundamental types of awareness. ABOVE THE HORIZON is everything that can be perceived by the senses. BELOW THE HORIZON is the realm of this interior awareness, which Jung rightly calls ''intuition''. INTUITION is the faculty of awareness through which we perceive INNER facts {Gnosis?}. Sensation is the awareness of the not-self - of others. As the 'Ascendant' is the seed - point of the lower hemispheres, it takes on necessary the meaning of pure self awareness. The Descendant being the seed - point of the upper hemisphere, is the symbol of awareness of others. This intuition and sensation are seen as two complementary factors, related respectively to East and West. One becomes aware of one's own existence as an ''I'' by an interior process which is intuition, whereas sensation is the result of an awareness of outer causes attributed to sense impressions." [Page 177. Same book].

At what age did Tutankhamun ''die''? PRIOR TO A REBIRTH.

"In antiquity, the practice of animating temples, bas reliefs, and statues was conceived of as both an art and science. In its scientific aspect, the art of animating statues drew upon the ancient canon of proportion, itself based on those ubiquitous geometrical ratios which underlie the forms of nature and the unfolding patterns of life. In the 'Laws' 656D, Plato refers to the canon of music and proportion which maintained the integrity of Egyptian art for no less than 10,000 years... The ultimate origins of the canon remains mysterious; evidence of its use is very early... The existence of such a canon is confirmed by the research of archaeologists and universally accepted by all Egyptologists. There were two Egyptian canons: the earliest divided the height of the human being into 19 squares; the later canon was based on a division of twentytwo squares. These canons provided a framework for Egyptian artists when rendering the human form and the 'forms' of the gods... Interestingly the 19 square Egyptian canon was taken over by the early Greek artists and sculptures, as has been shown by the studies of archaeologist Elanor Guralnick." ['Alexandria' Vol 2. By D. Fideler]. Think about it relative to ''a subject'' being represented in human form by way of ''number symbolism.'' Further examples in part 3.

''Life'' in relation to that 'bit'.

"Nineteen is the number of light, the existence of god proved by the idea of god." [Quote taken from chapter 19 entitled 'The stone of the Philosophers' from the book by E. Levi].

{12 + 7}? Recall what both numbers represent. As a means...?

"Nineteen is, to begin with an incomplete 20, but is also a sacred number in the near East. In ancient Egypt the 'Book of the Dead' mentions the 19 limbs of the body, each of which had a 'deity' of its own; by adding the deity connected with the whole body to them, the sacred 20 was attained. For medieval exegetes in the West, 19 combined: the 12 zodiac signs with the 7 planets. In the Islamic tradition however, this number corresponds to the numerical value of the word 'wahid' - ''One.'' ...Astronomically speaking, 19 is connected with the so called Metonic cycle: every 19 years, all the phases of the waxing and waning moon fall on the same days of the week during the whole solar year." [Extract from the book 'Mystery of Numbers' - entitled 'The Number of the Metonic Cycle'. Emphasis, this readers].

Recall same direction with 'Bog' bodies} - or muse, the Mother of all living, the ancient 'power' of 'freight' and 'lust' - the female spider or the queen bee whose 'embrace' is 'death' {towards a 'rebirth'?}. HENCE ''Housman offered a secondary test of true poetry: 'everything that reminds me of her goes through me like a spear' {''Tip/wounded'' link}. This is equally pertinent to the Theme.....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 concern the gods losing battle with the god of the Waning year for 'love' of the capricious and all powerful Threefold Goddess {soul}….The poet identifies himself {spirit} with the god of the Waxing year and his Muse {'anima'} with the Goddess; the rival is his blood brother {'shadow'}, his other self, his weird....''  [Page 24 'The White Goddess' / R.

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

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

A working {personal?} example: "We shall i believe, never fully understand our evolution, nor see in the glimmering light about us the sign posts that point the way into the future, unless we recognize the greatness of our spiritual heritage. Innumerable books have been written and the most painstaking researches have been made for centuries past, and an enormous mass of material has been collected from the mythology, traditions, and legends of every country in the world, but it seems as though some vital link is missing. Fact is piled upon fact, old documents are deciphered, folklore is compared with folklore, archeologists dig, and astronomers calculate, and poets dream - but in the end the opinion is fostered that the ancient wisdom was as the babbling of childhood compared with the intellectual reasoning of grown men. Seven hundred years ago there was a different outlook. John of Salisbury, who was Bishop of Chartres at the beginning of the 13th century, wrote: 'Our time is served by the beneficence of former days, and often knows more than the later, but not, naturally; because the spirit of our time is the greater, but because it rests upon other powers and upon the ripe wisdom of our fathers'. And he goes on to quote: ' We are like dwarfs who have climbed onto the shoulders of giants, so that we may see more than they and further {'horizon' link?} - but not because of the sharpness of our own eyesight or the tallness of our stature, but because we have been lifted up and exalted by the greatness of the giants'." ['The Flaming Door'].

'Fire'?

And/or: "But perhaps another solution of the problem may be available. The 'highly' developed is always replaced by the 'underdeveloped', the civilized by the barbarian. This is the inevitable course of history. Today, however, a new factor has come into play. Through the study of the unconscious we have found a way to be reconciled with the barbarian within ourselves {'giant'?}. The world drama {'Feast of Fools' link?} can be and indeed not infrequently is played out within the individual. Power and prestige abstracted from the highly developed parts of the psyche are 'applied' to the more lowly parts so that they may be educated - may be raised from their position of barbarism and degradation. By this process the individual can pass from an exclusively intellectual and rational attitude to one where focus latent in the unconscious {archetypes?} are given due recognition and are thus no longer in stark opposition to the conscious attitude. " ['Women's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern' / M. Harding].

64 objective aspects? Good or bad?

REFRESHER: ''This whole section of what is commonly known as Jesus' Sermon on the Mount has to do with the attitude Christians bring into the world. Our attitude is much like the lens through which we see the world. If one's attitude is focused on things of 'God', we are more able to see the world through God's eyes.''

'Intellectual' v 'Gnosis' ? Enlarged elsewhere.

'fire' in a different form.

Hence: " The interpretation of the moon mysteries {as one example} suggested in the following chapters links our modern life problems to those of the ancient peoples who recognized that in their day, as in ours, the world at times became sterile, and was laid waste, not by war or pestilence, but because some essential fertilizing spirit had been withdrawn." Same book.

'The Waste Land' / T. S. Eliot.

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

'Shoulder' or mushroom?

"I stood upon a high mountain, and saw a giant and a dwarf, i heard as it were a voice of thunder and drew nigh to hear. He spake unto me and said, 'I am thou and art i and where - so - ever thou mayest be, i am there. In all i am scattered, and whence - so - ever thou willest, thou gatherest me, and in gathering me, thou gatherest thyself." [The Gospel of Eve].

Question. Anima or animus related? As a means...? Or just mumbo jumbo?

Side note: Families competing for the 'Iron' throne in the series Game of Thrones. Giants {north} and dwarfs {south} included . Is the original author using 'subject' material as a means {method}...?

Something to ponder on: "What scripture says about Og, ''Behold, his bedstead was an iron bedstead, nine cubits in length," {Deut.3-11}….The bedstead is never the same dimensions as the person sleeping in it...it is always greater by a third....'The cubit of a man' means the measure of an ordinary man and not by the measure of Og…" [Page 248 'Guide for the Perplexed'].

The 'third' of something in relation to 'sleep'. Try ''nine'' and/or ''iron'' and/or ''North''.

'Gold/Silver' as a means....?

Shortest name = 'Tom'?

'Circle of Giants' link? Therefore those ''blue stones''?

Question. What would be the 'longest' name in Asia?

Any 'lightening'?

And/or: "In our investigation into the origins of Gog and Magog, it is necessary to pay particular attention to the remarks made about them by Ezekiel....He was a Hebrew priest, who was among those carried into captivity by Nebuchadnezzar about 600 B.C., and gave out his prophecy shortly after this....an invasion of Palestine led by the people of Gog....In point of fact, the invasion never took place....Ethiopia, and Libya are mentioned among the 'enemies' - it is clear that the 'expected' attack is from the North {N/W?}....Now in Syria, in the Jebel-el-Druz area, lived Og, the king of Bushan. He was a giant, and his 'city' or land was Ashtaroth. It may just be a coincidence that he was a giant and that his name was Og: but, when he is also associated with Ashtaroth, the Great Mother goddess who, in later times at any rate, was also a moon goddess, there are too many coincidences. Og must be the same as Gog, Ashtaroth the same as Magog...." [Page 10/108/109 'GogMagog'].

What do 'colours' represent. 'Pyr'amid texts?

Refresher: ''The Greeks sometimes identified Asteria with the Phoenician goddess Ashtarte. It is not known if the Greek goddess was in fact derived from the Phoenician. However, other Greek gods worshipped around the Aegean, such as Melikertes (Phoenician Melqart) and Ino-Leukothea were indeed imported from the East....

''Asteria may have been a goddess of dream oracles worshipped as Brizo (Slumber) on the island of Delos and as Ino-Pasiphae in Lakonian Thalamai (Thalamae). The Pasiphae of Thalamai was a dual sky and sea goddess who sent prophetic dreams.

Silver/Gold?

Pausanias, Description of Greece 3. 26. 1 (trans. Jones) (Greek travelogue C2nd A.D.) :
"From Oitylos (Oetylus) to Thalamai (Thalamae) [in Lakedaimonia (Lacedaemon)] the road is about eighty stades long. On it is a sanctuary of Ino and an oracle. They consult the oracle in sleep, and the goddess reveals whatever they wish to learn, in dreams. Bronze statues of Pasiphae and of Helios (the Sun) stand in the unroofed part of the sanctuary. It was not possible to see the one within the temple clearly, owing to the garlands, but they say this too is of bronze. Water, sweet to drink, flows from a sacred spring. Pasiphae is a title of Selene (the Moon), and is not a local goddess of the people of Thalamai."[Internet].

All as a means....? Try ''naked'' and or ''garment''.

Amarna also was 'open' to the sky.

Side note: ''The Minack Theatre (Cornish: Gwaryjy Minack) is an open-air theatre, constructed above a gully with a rocky granite outcrop jutting into the sea. The theatre is at Porthcurno, 4 miles (6.4 km) from Land's End in Cornwall, England.[1] The season runs each year from May to September. As of 2012, some 80,000 people a year see a show, and more than 100,000 pay an entrance fee to look around the site.[2][3] It has appeared in a listing of the world's most spectacular theatres.''

Right angle? 'Cap' of 'gold'?

The theatre was the brainchild of Rowena Cade, who moved to Cornwall after the First World War and built a house for herself and her mother on land at Minack Point for £100.[3] Her sister was the feminist dystopian author Katharine Burdekin , and her partner lived with them from the 1920s.[5] In 1929, a local village group of players had staged Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream in a nearby meadow at Crean, repeating the production the next year. They decided that their next production would be The Tempest and Cade offered the garden of her house as a suitable location, as it was beside the sea. Cade and her gardener, Billy Rawlings, made a terrace and rough seating, hauling materials down from the house or up via the winding path from the beach below. In 1932, The Tempest was performed with the sea as a dramatic backdrop, to great success. Cade resolved to improve the theatre, working over the course of the winter months each year throughout her life (with the help of Rawlings and Charles Angove), so that others might perform each summer.''

"One of the important teachings contained in this chapter {i.e., Chapter 25 of the Book of the Dead} is the idea of remembrance. Spiritual 'enlightenment' is not something new that is added to a person. It is a gathering and making whole one's consciousness so as to discover one's true identity as One with the 'divine'. Thus the initiate asks that they be given their 'name'...." [  Page 212 'Egyptian Book of the Dead' / M Ashby]. 'See' anything?

"Some heads are graced by golden crowns. Golden crowns and jewelled diadems detract from the beautiful tresses of other heads because the tresses of beauties are traps of love, which is the heart's throne. A golden crown is a lifeless thing; the wearer is the heart's beloved." 'Signs of the Unseen' / Jalaluddin Rumi].

Continued from Part 1:"...Eurynome was a daughter of Oceanos, and she and Thetis recieved Hephaestus in their lap, in the depths of the waters, when he was flung into the sea. This imagery is important, providing ancient links between the 'heavenly' and 'underworld' powers. Hephaestus, the great Smith of the gods, often depicted as a lame dwarf, was the misbegotten child of Hera, the queen of the Olympian gods, who threw him from 'heaven' into the 'sea', to be saved and nurtured by the ancient goddesses Thetis and Eurynome, for whom he fashioned jewellery in a grotto by the great underground sea. He also had as his companion the Kaberiroi, another line of ancient underworld gods and servants of the Great Mother - who were sea gods and smiths. And later he became associated with the volcanic powers of Etna and Vesuvius. His importance in ancient myth is preserved in 'confused and conflicting' {purposely?} - stories about births engendered by Zeus and Hera. It is said that Hera bore Hephaistos unaided as an act of spite and emulation when Zeus bore Pallas Athene from his 'head'...Another story says Hephaistos assisted in the birth by...[Extract from the book by G. Knight].

The women looked over to her form and said, 'Jean, wake up your mother and tell her to give you the blood test that's given to alchoholics.'' [Page 190/1 same book].

Beatrice in disguise?

Portal?

The above author {i.e., J. Houston} understands the ''women'' to be: ''My collective body wisdom, somewhat whimsically attired but bearing crtical information that was unavailable to my conscious mind but able to reach me in my feverish altered state.'' What she has not 'realised' is the myth of Sekhmet { a 'known' aspect of herself} in relation to blood/beer RELATIVE to: ''As for my participation, i found that my guiding activity stopped at the threshold of the spiritual level {'fire'?}. Just as Virgil had to leave Dante at the portals of the 'realms of bliss' {'beauty' link?} and could not enter 'paradise' with him, so i as guide {dog/jackal and or airedale?} could do more than bear witness to the culmination of the process i had launched. I hoped an inner guide belonging to a deeper realm {silence/lakes?} would take up the task of guidance, as Dante was met by the divine Beatrice which helped him 'see' - the love that moves the sun and all the stars.''

And/or: Saturn, as you know, is the binding, crystallizing vibration. The pair of opposites assigned to it is Dominion and Slavery, because our expression of this 'vibration' {i.e., in the ''energy'' sense of the word, i.e., recall J.

The commercial material is just as good...It is used routinely in crystal-garden kits sold as educated toys." ['The Chemistry of Alchemy']. Try ''Isle of Glass'' for a 'connection'.

"The whole of the Perseus mythology is of relevance to the 'Goddess' powers, and our consideration of them will not be complete until we have examined their central holy of holies, the Garden of Hesperides. This was in the far West {S/W?] of the great underground sea of Okeanos. It was sometimes said to lie at the far end of a red sea. This is another allusion to the far West, and the apparent path to it made by the setting sun inflaming the waters with its reflection. In later Olympean mythologies, it was said that Zeus, the king of the gods, had a palace there. This emphasizes their importance, but their origin is more accurately indicated in the belief that they were the possession of Hera, {top-down?} the Queen of the gods, and had been given to her as a wedding gift by Gaia, {bottom-up?} the most ancient Earth goddess, the source of all life on earth. The 'marriage' bed of Hera, was even said to be located here, and the creative aspect was emphasized by the fruitfulness of the earth and by the many fountains that jetted forth. It was the site also of an orchard and in particular of a special tree which bore golden apples. This tree was guarded by a serpent, called Ladon, which is also the name of a river in Arcadia. This is not inappropriate, for Arcadia was by tradition an idyllic pastoral land, and a river is one of the most ancient symbols for the fount of life. One of the most ancient Greek creation myths saw all life as having come from a primal river, Eridanus, which also has a constellation dedicated to it, that stretches along the horizon between the celestial hemispheres.

"Beneath the apple tree I awaken you." [Song of Songs 8:5].

Side note: Apple Island and Frog Island close by to Oak Island. Coincidence?

A working example: "Cetus is sometimes represented swimming in the River Eridanus, although usually as resting on the bank with fore paws {N.B. Not the hind ones} - in the water. Its head, directly under Aries, marked by an irregular pentagon of stars, and its body stretching from the bend in Eridanus to that in the Stream from the Urn...Aquarius is not conspicuous, being, chiefly marked by the stars that represent the Urn, the familiar 'Y' - called Urna by the Latins...On the right arm of {the 'Waterman'. N.B. Not 'woman'} - at the inner edge of the Urn, and the westernmost star in the 'Y' , is Sadachbia - which has been interpreted the Lucky Star of Hidden Things or Hiding Places, because when it emerged from the sun's rays all hidden worms and reptiles, buried during the preceding cold {'flood'?} - creep out of their holes {'scarab' beetles?}...This idea of the Fish drinking the Stream is an ancient one, and may have given rise to the title Pisces aqueous, found with Ovid...Vergil mentioned it in his directions for the gathering the honey harvest...In Babylonia it was associated with the 11th month Shabatu, the Curse of Rain...and the Epic of Creation has an account of the Deluge in its eleventh Book, corresponding to this the 11th constellation; each of its other books numerically coinciding with the other zodiacal signs. In that country its Urn was known as the Seat of the Flowing Waters and the God of the Storm...Still earlier it was known as Lord of Canals, an Akkadian word for Aquarius some 15000 years ago when the sun entered it and the Nile flood was at its height... " [Notes within Cetus, Aquarius and Pisces 'Star Names and Their Meaning'].

N.B. The word ''foundation'' used for many of the stars in the same 'Y' grouping.

"I will open my mouth in parables, i will utter what has been hidden, since the foundation of the world." [Matthew 13.35].

Refresher with something added: "Aquarius is not conspicuous, being, chiefly marked by the stars that represent the Urn, the familiar 'Y' - called Urna by the Latins...On the right arm of {the 'Waterman'. N.B. Not 'woman'} - at the inner edge of the Urn, and the westernmost star in the 'Y' , is Sadachbia - which has been interpreted the Lucky Star of Hidden Things or Hiding Places...But as this word Ah biyah is merely the plural of H iba, a Tent, a more reasonable explanation is that the star was so called from its rising in the spring twilight, when, after the winters suffering, the nomads tents were raised on the freshening pastures. This idea renders Professor Whitneys ' Felicity of Tents' - the stars included under this designation - in the center - marking the top of the 'tent'...Although unnamed, the star at the center of the 'Y' of the Urn, is almost exactly on the celestial equator."

"Of considerable importance in this sequence, although easily overlooked in the welter of symbolism, is the fact that this process of dividing the worthy from the unworthy, at the border between inner and outer 'levels', takes place in a garden around a fountain. The fountain, together with a garden, orchard, or grove of trees, is an almost invariable feature of entrances to the 'inner' planes in esoteric mythology."

Same question too: "Another common local belief is that the large snails found along the Pilgrim's Way close to Charing were originally introduced to the area by Norman pilgrims who dropped them along the way....Cartwright makes reference to snails at both Albury in Surrey and at Charing in Kent. The particular variety in question is the helix pomatia, or Apple snail, and is usually known as the Roman snail in England, due to its likely introduction into southern England by the Romans. Today it can be found in chalk and lime habitats, which explains it occurrence on the edge of the chalk escarpment....H. S. Ward, in The Canterbury Pilgrimages, notes that stories of the existence of Roman snails abound throughout the southern counties." [Page 66 'The Pilgrims Way' / D. Bright].

Connect those keys to attempt a mindset. Try ''hoar''.

Something extra {add it all together to 'see' something}: "As to our assertion that scriptures applies the notion of ''influence'' to 'God', compare: 'They have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters" {Jer.ii.13}, i.e.,the 'Divine' influence that gives life or 'existence'; for the two are identical. Further, ''For with thee is the fountain of life'' {Ps.xxxvi.10}, i.e.,the Divine influence that gives existence. The concluding words of this verse, ''In thy light we 'see' light,'' express exactly what we said, namely, that by the influence of the intellect which 'emanates' from god we become wise, by it we are guided and enabled to comprehend the Active intellect. Note this." [Page 171 'Guide for the Perplexed'. Emphasis, this readers].

Question. Top/down or bottom/up or both?

And/or: "In the Greek myths, the serpent guardian {Ladon?} was tended by three humans, also linked with darkness. Even in Greece, at the beginning of our western civilisation - the 'Daughters of Evening' - were born of darkness. The three Hespirides, who were also guardians of the golden apples, were born of Erebus and night...The 17th century alchemist, Michael Maier, chose to ignore the darkness implicit in the story of the Hesperides...Maier was interested in the 'destiny' of the golden apples, once they had come to earth, for he saw them as 'seedings' of spiritual wisdom... " ['The Zelator']. Try ''seed''.

Something unknown becoming known {i.e.,the 'eve'{ning} of something}. 'SEE' IT?

Additional information: within a working example {the very first one?}: "Homer perceived Mercury's appearance at dawn and dusk as being that of two planets. Venus is another planet that can only be seen before either dawn or dusk and is never in the sky in the middle of the night; narrative indicates that Homer recognized Venus at morning and evening as the same object. In chapter 6, we give profiles of Hera as the moon, Athene as Jupiter, Ares as Mars, Aphrodite as Venus, Apollo as Mercury at dawn and Hermes as Mercury at dusk, as well as the Smith god Hephaestus as the constellation Perseus, and of Thetis, {and her nymphs} - Achilles goddess mother - as the constellation Eridanus. There is no portrait of Zeus, controller of the heavens and the most powerful god of all, for he does not represent a physical aspect of the universe but is an 'all-knowing' abstract concept {''lighting up''?}. Even his home on Olympus and Mount Ida are important astronomical ideas rather than tangible entities." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

In other words all aspects {higher/lower} within the whole {i.e.,''zeus'', i.e.,what it represents}. Recall Part 1.

Question. ''Higher/lower'' and/or 'shadow/anima' = Trojan/Greek. Which and why?

And/or: "Insofar as Homer gives some mortals dual roles as stars and constellations, it is perhaps not surprising that major gods may also represent constellations as well as planets. Hephaestus is one of these and, as well as being the artificer who created the constellation, he has as his personal abode in the skies the constellation of Perseus, which he shares with Diomedes." Same book.
