CERNE-300x225

'Up Yours'? or something deeper. 'Left' arm for a 'snake'?

The Cerne Abbas Giant, mentioned in the same book, [J. Michell]..the stone age equivalent of the same. Proof...Cerne, a direct link to 'Cernunnos' and Abbas, a link to the word abbey and abba. Both an indirect link to the word 'father', i.e.,higher of the lower. Question. If the 'giant' represents 'lower', what within landscape symbolism would represent 'higher'? Think about it, in relation to a 'development,' as well as 'flat tops'[keys]. Explained within.

As well as Mr Lethbridges research on Gog Magog, in his book of the same, i.e.,pagan equivalent of higher/lower. In 'its' most primitive form. [ Explained elsewhere]. Or Mr Z. Sitchin's book, 'The 12th Planet'. Understanding this subject explains why the word 'Nefilim'[Giant] and Mr Sitchins interpretation of the same...'those who were cast down', are; to all intent and purpose; one of the same thing. I.e., a link to 'the fall' symbolism, and that link to 'lower within the higher'.

Side note: "The small island of Salamis, home of the Great Aias, physically the largest warrior at Troy, was linked to Argo Navis, the largest constellation in Homer's day, but since divided into three." AND/OR " only the second strongest warrior - represented with Canopus - the 2nd brightest star in the heavens. The brightest star {Sirius} allocated to Achilles the ''warrior without equal''. ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

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

Question. Fantasists?

"Who were the Gog and Magog people? This question is connected with the question, who was Dhu al Qarnayn? ''Lord of two Qarns'' [horns]. Or the ''Lord of two epochs'' [i.e.,the tail end of something - and the beginning of something else]. Answer found elsewhere, as well as Sura eighteen of the Quran translated by Yusuf Ali.

And/or: ''Pandora is one of the earliest synpotic accounts of alchemy, and it may be the first that was written in German....The author was the physician Hieronymus Reusner who was a student of Paracelsus...The chief value of Pandora lies in the series of the eighteen symbolical pictures at the end of the volume.'' [Page 144 'Alchemical Studies' / C.G. Jung].

Ayumu Hirano - the corkscrew 'spiral' king.

"The number 18, which appears in pre-Columbian measures of time, has a certain importance in the West. This may be explained by the connection to the circular number 360, or possibly with an astral number, since eclipses of the sun and moon recur in the same sequence after 18 years. It is not surprising that 18 plays a role in the Cabala, for its numerical number corresponds to the word for living [hay], as well as the name David...In medieval Christianity exegesis it is sometimes explained as the sum of 10 + 8, which is taken to mean the fulfillment of the Law through grace. This interpretation was derived from Luke 13:11, where it is told that Jesus healed a woman who had a spirit of infirmity for 18 years, [those numbers 13:11 also imply something. This readers input]. Elsewhere, the number was taken as the product of 3x6, which represents faith in the Trinity coordinated with pious works. Islamic tradition knows the 18 consonants of the introductory formula Bismi'llahi'r - rahmani'r - rahim [''in the name of god the all merciful, the all compassionate'']. Perhaps the common idea that there are 18000 worlds is derived from the number of the blessed formula by which every act has to begin. For the Mevlevi, the Sufi order of the Whirling Dervishers, 18 is one of the central numbers..." [Extract from 'The Mystery of Numbers'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"One can escape the prison of the eclipse, only by turning to the moral consciousness of the transcendent self..." [Extract from the book by Tomberg]. Try Part 4.

Moon and Sun. As a means...?

Side note: ''Before eating Nikola Tesla - 'the father of electricity' - polished each piece of cutlery with eighteen napkins''. [QI Elves].

''Then one day she dares to enter the synagogue when he is teaching. She watches Jesus approach a woman crippled for 18 years. He puts his hand on the woman’s stooped back and immediately she straightens up {'right angle'?}. Surprise, delight, and anger ripple through the onlookers. The synagogue leaders challenge the morality of his healing on the Sabbath. With an unpretentious authority Jesus holds his ground, exclaiming that it was only right that this woman, bound by Satan, be set free on the Sabbath day (Luke 13:10-17).'' [Novena: 'Nine Days With Mary Magdalene' / Magdala/Israel / 2022].

“If I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.” [Luke 11:20].

''Transforming fingers''?

A working example: ''The way of 'marriage' seems fraught with....all consuming passion. More often than not, the hungry inner self has been eclipsed by the outer personality....Within these eclipsed areas - where our needs, wants and beliefs remain secret, even to ourselves - lies ones shadow....Two halfs never created a whole but only another half so long as the shadow remains eclipsed.'' [Pages 84/85/104 'Dreams of Isis: A Womans Spiritual Sojourn' / N. Ellis].

''Called by astronomers the First Point of Aries, this junction where the sun crosses the equator in its northward journey marks zero point  in the measurement of right ascension which can be conceptualized as celestial longitude.'' [Page 117 'The Orion Zone' / G. A. David].

chacoSide note: And/or {something to ponder on}: "And it was not only during the darkest time of the year - when the nights are at their longest - but it was also under the sign of 'virgin intelligence' eclipsed by human terrestrial intelligence that the nativity of Jesus Christ took place...Do not be scandalised, dear Unknown friend, by the fact that you find yourself confronted with the rosary prayer in the Hermetic meditation on the 18th Arcanum of the Tarot - the Arcanum which teaches how to surmount 'eclipsed lunar intelligence'. Esotericism is not a collection of extraordinary and unknown things, but rather it is above all a less ordinary and less known way of seeing ordinary and known things - of seeing their profundity." [Pages 499/516 'Letter 18, The Moon, within the book 'Meditations on the Tarot'].

Question. ''Surmount'' in relation to an 'overhang'?

N.B. ''Prayer'' is only one method of 'overcoming' that obstacle. A Study program does the same. If ONLY in determining a mind-set.

Side note: The author of the book 'The Death of Gods in Ancient Egypt' {J. Sellers} - believes that the eclipse {of the sun ONLY} was used along with precession as part of their religion. Even though there is no written evidence of it. Indeed they did - and not just solar ones. An ''eclipse'' is a natural feature of this world - the world that we all live in - and is used {especially by the ancients - before the written word came into common use - } to 'describe' something internal. That external quantity is used to 'see' something of an inner quality. 

Try Her-Bak to take it further. And/or 3:6 etc.

"When you pray and study, let {my words} not forsake you''. [Paraphrase of Proverbs 4:21. Taken from the book 'Meditation and Kabbalah].

A studious eye?

A working example: ''One book opens another: the philosopher tells us truly. There is no understanding of the Art without long and anxious study of those texts in which the 'angelic' keys to our Philosophy are concealed. However, to the uninitiated eye, the bogus recipes of some imbecile puffer can appear as wise as the works of the Bridlington Canon {i.e., Ripley}. [Page 55 'Mercurius' / P. Harpur].

Question. Hocus pocus or a genuine mind set?

Side note: Speculation about what that 'star' could have been - around the time of the 'birth' of Christ: ''There was a lunar eclipse one month before 'Passover' in the year Herod died {4BC}." {'Sky at Night' / Xmas edition}.

Sphinx is to 'fire' as Sibyl is to 'Soul'.

''Paschal full moon. The paschal full moon is the ecclesiastical full moon of the northern spring and is used in the determination of the date of Easter. The name "paschal" is derived from "Pascha", a transliteration of the Aramaic word meaning Passover.''

Side note: "Eastertide (also known as Eastertime or the Easter season) or Paschaltide (also known as Paschaltime or the Paschal season) is a festal season in the liturgical year of Christianity that focuses on celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Preceded by Lent, it begins on Easter Sunday, which initiates Easter Week in Western Christianity, and Bright Week in Eastern Christianity.

Man in the moon?

There are several Eastertide customs across the Christian world, including flowering the cross,[1] sunrise services, the wearing of Easter bonnets by women,[2] exclaiming the Paschal greetingclipping the church,[3] and decorating Easter eggs, a symbol of the empty tomb.[4][5][6] Additional Eastertide traditions include egg hunting, eating special Easter foods and watching Easter parades.[7][8] The Easter lily, a symbol of the resurrection in Christianity,[9][10] traditionally decorates the chancel area of churches on this day and for the rest of Eastertide.[11]

Traditionally lasting 40 days to commemorate the time the resurrected Jesus remained on earth before his Ascension, in some western churches Eastertide lasts 50 days to conclude on the day of Pentecost or Whitsunday."

Division.

And/or: "In C. A. Gaskell's Classic Myth's, we note that the Three Fates {Clotho, Lachesis and Atrophos} were the spinners of the thread of human destiny. They were provided with SHEARS, with which to cut off when they pleased, and, according to Hesiod, were the daughters of the night. Clotho held the distaff, Lachesis spun the thread, and Atrophos cut it off when it was ended....We are informed that the Fates dwelt in the deep abyss of Demogorgon, and with UNwearied fingers drew out the threads of life...Gemini is the branching-off month or period of the year...It has to do, in utero, with the branching off of the nerves from the head, to form the body. The distaff refers to the base of the brain, where seventyfive percent of the nerves of the head concentrate and cross, appearing to wind upon themselves {'PEG'?}....The Three Fates are therefore concerned with the three decans of Gemini. Clotho, the youngest, is allocated the first decan - holder of the distaff. Lachesis spins and draws out the thread, while Atrophos DIVIDES it so that it may form the great nerve branch in either legs....In some mythological pictures {and/or hieroglyphs/correspondences} - the thread is represented as first appearing at the FEET of Jove {'footstool'?} and his heavenly spouse...The etymology of the word 'shear' corresponds to "the parting or fork of the human body" {'Y'?} - hence the limbs. An archaic interpretation of shear is to make an incision or cleft...

''Red king."

Continued: ''However, we all know that white  must have its twin or balancer in shadow. This is the menstrual rhythm of the black goddesses - the new moon. The value of this rhythm in the cosmic sense is Necessity - pathologising and wounding in psyche and substance. Here is the raw, open and unpredictable Dionysian current, the Romantic in culture. In alchemical lore this is the black of the dark moon and eclipsed moon {hidden or concealed light of the sun}. The hidden masculine rises on the outer feminine as recognition by the woman of the inner husband, other lover, inner-child or Red King: the animus....Here is the inspiration of death {daath?} as a teacher, but not of morbidity, for the potential 'child' that is as yet unborn - is reborn in an INNER-SENSE {in innocence}, as a deepening to fresh values.....'' [Page 254 'Fruits of the Moon Tree' / A. Bleakley].

And/or ''Conjunction {triple} of Jupiter and Saturn {7BC} - 23rd September."

"Saturn is the furthest planet that can be seen with the naked eye."

Question. Does that give clews as to the construction of such monuments in Egypt in relation their most noteworthy of all 'high priests' - IMHOTEP?

''At the start of the 17th century the world was still fraught with wonders and nothing seemed impossible. In December 1603 there was a conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter, the hour hands of the cosmic clock which usher in new epochs and crumbles old orders. New stars suddenly appeared in the constellations of the Serpent and the Swan, and fears and hopes were rife throughout Europe. In England the long reign of the Tudors came to an end....'' ['Robert Fludd' / J. Godwin].

Jupiter/Saturn December 2020 ?

Hapton Court with maze {labyrinth?} in the middle of a u-turn of the Thames river {S/W}.

Henry the 8th and William of 'Orange' {conjunction?}.

''Tower''?

Side note: The crown jewels consists of over 0nehunderd and forty objects {140} - including a spoon and walking stick and in 1671 Thomas Blood attempted to steal them. Been in the Tower since the 1600s. Used in the coronation of British monarchs. ['Lightening' / BBC2 /S2 E27].

''There are 3 teaspoons in one tablespoon.''

Continued: A {working} example: {i.e., something hinted at}: "Strange to tell, but I did not enter the cave; in fact, I never chose to enter it at all during those three days. Why is still uncertain...But whatever the case, I decided to set up camp on the far western edge of the cave mouth - an ideal location where the path broadened out, and was protected somewhat by an overhang. The old apple tree was long gone, yet faint ghost-like traces of it could be seen on the ground where a stump once was." ['Lost Books of Merlin' / D. Monroe].

'Stump'? New growth? Oak?

Try ''Seahenge'' and/or ''overhang'' {i.e., what 'position' is generally associated with it}?

N.B. Chaco Canyon {S/W} - with overhang and images. Enlarged elsewhere.

And/or: ''At Hatshepsut’s mortuary temple on the Nile, a withered ancient tree stump defies the unrelenting Egyptian sun, still standing as a testimony to the female royal’s influence and political prowess.

'Fat' of the land.

Supposedly, this myrrh tree dates back to one of the many expeditions commissioned by Hatshepsut some 3,500 years ago. According to the narrative, the tree was brought back from one of the monarch’s seafaring delegations to Punt, which is described as a land on the Red Sea (most likely present-day Somalia and other parts of the Horn of Africa). The myrrh was then planted next to the grand mortuary temple of Hatshepsut, also called Djeser-Djeseru, which translates to “Holy of Holies.”

Side note: “Ash Wednesday is the much higher value and deserves the full measure of our devotion,” he said. “I ask with all respect that we maintain the unique importance of Ash Wednesday. If you would like to wine and dine your Valentine, please do so on the Tuesday before. February 13 is Mardi Gras, ‘Fat Tuesday,’ a perfect day to feast and celebrate!”

'Thirteen'.

"A pregnant pause (or silence) is a pause or silence that is laden with meaning or significance."  N.B. 'Navel' = middle of human form.

Continued: "An interdisciplinary project involving biologists, Egyptologists, and anthropologists has discovered evidence that may pinpoint the actual location of the trading region of Punt, based on the genetic analysis of an ancient mummified baboon discovered in the ‘Valley of the Monkeys’ in 1905. A previous American study (in 2020) using stable isotopes (chemical signatures found in the teeth of animals) identified the Horn of Africa as the region from which ancient baboons originated. The new research, led by the University of Konstanz in Germany, used genetic analysis to compare the animal specimen to the genetic diversity of baboons living across the African continent, as well as to samples from 100- to 150 year-old specimens from museum collections. Early texts mention that baboons were imported into Egypt from Punt, with the last known expeditions taking place there during the Late Period, which matches the date of the mummified baboon. The team was able to pinpoint the baboon’s origin to the coastal port of ancient Adulis in Eritrea, which was known as a centre for the import of primates during the Graeco-Roman Period. The researchers suggest that Punt and Adulis could be the same geographical location, with the name having changed over thousands of years." ['The Past'].

Continued: Come back to it later, has one does in any subject. Only put in to show the extent and [depth?] of this subjects material base - if only for this reader - over countless generations; and multiple authors, i.e.,as one example: "Morris dance - {Wikipedia} - The name is first recorded in the mid-15th century as Morisk dance, moreys daunce, morisse daunce, i.e. "Moorish dance". Enlarged elsewhere.

"Today's travellers passing through Winster in Derbyshire may enjoy the unexpected sight of a man dressed as a woman from a centuries old tradition. So old, in fact, that nobody knows where it came from - Morris dancing..." [Britain's Ancient Tracks'. Narrated by T. Robinson. Series 2. Episode 3]. Other clues elsewhere.

''Who guides the keel that plows the deep''. Enlarged elsewhere.

Side note: ''Like other members of the Clematis genus, old man's beard or traveller's joy climbs (or scrambles ) over other plants using its leaf stalks (petioles) and flower stalks. The leaves are not unlike the familiar garden forms of Clematis. The leaf stalks entwine around any convenient support / structure in their vicinity and then lignify (become woody).''

'Plough Monday' dance by the Royal Liberty Morris. Try ''plough''.

Hatshepsut with 'beard'. A balance? ANIMUS?

Continued: {from a different perspective}: "For shamans, this state of balance between the feminine and masculine, magnetic and dynamic, yin and yang aspects of themselves is of supreme importance. Many shamans have believed that to be a truly excellent shaman, one must bring together these polarities in harmony and balance. Historically, there are many accounts of shamans cross-dressing...There are accounts of this ritualized merging into the opposite sex among Native American shamans from the Arapaho, Cheyenne, and Ute tribes as well as etc, etc,...This is not caused by a cross-cultural disorder, but is done purposely as a practice to attain balance...an internal unity that brings together the male and female aspects within themselves into a sacred marriage..." ['Secrets of Shamanism'].

Try ''Marriage'' / ''Dynamic/static'' ''feast of fools'' to see 'it' in its broader {universal?} context.

A beginning of something {''unfold''} = 'child' link?

And/or: Static in relation to: S/W / ''Under {'in'?} the Horizon'' / and Nadir. And Dynamic in relation to: S/E / ''Above {'of'?} the Horizon'' / and Zenith. Enlarged throughout.

A working example: "God is dynamic. Evolution is a subjective, human term for our experience of his dynamism." [Page 141 'The Sword in the Sun'].

A leap across a gap?

''Twelve-_Lords_a_Leaping.''

From a different perspective: "This much is the basic pattern, which can be enacted by one individual, or by a group. The physical movement is essential, and the transformative power does not awaken fully without it. It may be done as a dance to drumming and music, or as a simple processional movement. Traditionally it is accompanied by spinning and leaping. Many ritual dances from folk tradition, particularly those preserving death and resurrection symbolism, use this type of pattern....Celtic saints for example, were renowned for leaping…." 'The Way of Merlin' / R. Stewart. Italics, this readers].

Question. A leap of faith or that intuitive one?

ALL as a means....?

As is:'' A drum of hareskin…'' {Page 193 - Douglas Monroe}.

A leap of something - all in unison?

And/or: "Moriscos (Spanish: [mo'?iskos], Catalan: [mu'?iskus], [mo'?iskos]; Portuguese: mouriscos [mo(w)'?i?ku?], [mo(w)'?iskus]; meaning "Moorish") were former Muslims who converted or were coerced into converting to Christianity, after Spain finally outlawed the open practice of Islam by its sizeable Muslim population (termed Mudejar) in the early 16th century...The Inquisition was aimed mostly at Jews and Muslims who had overtly converted to Christianity but were thought to be practicing their faiths secretly. They were respectively called marranos and moriscos. However, in 1567 King Philip II directed Moriscos to give up their Arabic names and traditional dress, and prohibited the use of Arabic. In reaction, there was a Morisco uprising in the Alpujarras from 1568 to 1571. In the years from 1609 to 1614, the government expelled Moriscos. The historian Henri Lapeyre estimated that this affected 300,000 out of an estimated total of 8 million inhabitants.

According to L. P. Harvey, the two different meanings of the word 'morisco' have resulted in mistakes where modern scholars misread historical text containing morisco in the older meaning as having the newer meaning. In the early years after the forced conversions, the Christians used the terms ''New Christians'', ''New converts'', or ''New Christians , converted from being Moors''. [Wiki].

''Zero'' ? As a means to begin something. The start of something.

And/or: ''We may never know the full story of what communications there were between the secret mystics of the East and those of the West. However, two points of contact certainly did exist in medieval times. One was the Moorish kingdom in Spain, which lasted from A. D. 711 until 1492. The scholarship of the Moorish doctors was far in advance of that of most of Europe. They gave us the Arabic number signs - a great advance upon the clumsy Roman numerals; and many terms in astronomy and chemistry derived from Arabic. So are the astrological terms 'zenith' and 'nadir'. It was natural that men of such comparatively advanced scientific learning should be accused of 'sorcery'. However, the Moors also had a considerable interest in occult philosophy, alchemy, astrology, and 'magic' generally. The city of Toledo in Spain especially so....'' ['An ABC of Witchcraft: Past and Present' / Doreen Valiente].

Side note: Toledo, the place where Juan De Yepes Y Alvarez {St. John of the Cross} wrote his best known work - while in imprisonment - ''Dark Night of the Soul.'' Other possible 'keys' = Born 24th {'twentyfour'} June. Ordained at twentyfive + 25 chapters in Part II of the above book. 'Fourteen' in the first part. Beatified in 1675 {'seventyfive'}, canonized in 1726 {'twentysix'} and became a doctor of the church in 1926. Belonged to a Carmelite order that became known as 'shoeless'. His persecution ended in 1578 after which: ''He wrote the majority of his works - most of which remained UNFINISHED - during the next 'nine' years.'' [Intro. to above book. Translated by E. A.  peers].

The mythic Hobby - Horse.

Continued: ''There are two rival horses and their fiercely loyal bands of supporters at Padstow: the Old 'Oss is decorated with white and red, and its supporters wear red scarves to show their allegiance; the Blue Ribbon 'Oss (or "Peace 'Oss") is decorated with white and blue and its supporters follow suit. A "Teaser" waving a padded club dances in front of each 'Oss, accompanied, as they dance through the narrow streets, by a lively band of melodeons, accordions and drums playing Padstow's traditional May Song. The 'Osses sometimes capture young women beneath the skirt of the hobby horse; often they emerge smeared with black.'' [Wiki].

AND/OR: The horse is a universal symbol of the Mother. This again is an objective symbol for the Unconscious, the animal life, since it is from thence that consciousness is born. Again, the horse in astrological symbolism corresponds to the zodiacal sign Sagittarius which represents aspiration and spiritual yearning. Associated with this idea there is the Chaldean Oracle:  Also there is the Vision of the fire-flashing courser of Light, or also a child borne aloft on the  shoulders of the celestial steed, fiery, or clothed with Gold, or naked, or shooting with the bow shafts of Light, and standing on the shoulders of the Horse. But if thy meditation prolongeth itself thou shalt unite all these Symbols in the form of a Lion. Nearly all animals, from the psychological viewpoint, indicate libido or instinct, the type and size of animal indicating the degree of its domesticity. Speed in running is the chief characteristic of the horse. Its tendency when frightened to bolt with the bit between its teeth is another. These are fairly descriptive symbols of the primitive instinctive principle inhering within each one of us. ['The Philosophers Stone' / I. Regardie].

Childs play?

Every year, in preparation for the first of May (unless this falls on a Sunday, in which case the festival takes place on Monday 2nd), Padstow's narrow streets and ancient harbour are extravagantly decorated with flowers, flags and greenery {especially young sycamores}, the focus of which is a tall and colourful May Pole. What follows is a grand procession, usually attended by thousands, in which two groups of dancers, accompanied by drums, triangles and marching accordion players, make their way through the town, one of each team dressed in a stylized recreation of a horse and wearing a striking and faintly terrifying mask. These are the Old and Blue Ribbon Osses, both of whom have stables from which they emerge in the morning and to which they return at night....Led by teaser and trailed by crowds of followers dressed in white with red and blue sashes and a number of junior Osses operated by children, the two main Osses pretend to try to catch maidens as they pass through the narrow streets. This bizarre dance continues all day long until, at midnight, the townsfolk join together to sing Padstow's unique 'May Song';

Try 'Dark Aphrodite' / 'Black Madonna' to get into that universal mindset.

A {working?} example: "Venus is called the planet of 'love', by those who do not know about the mysteries,'' he had said. This starting us out on a long journey in search of arcane images. We knew that the esoteric Venus was the planet of inner light, and that love itself is an expression of this phosphorescence. His concluding sentence on that day had puzzled us however: "After an eclipse of Venus, the soul must become a wanderer for a while. 'Venus' is the inner flame; she finds it hard to bear the darkness of eclipse.'' We had not understood then, but now we did, for we were living through such an eclipse..." ['The Zelator'].

A side step: N.B. 13th King of Copan {'Holy' Kings} - whose name = 'Eighteen Are The Images of the God' - nicknamed 18 Rabbit. Hare link? Try ''13'' to add or detract from - while recalling what ''18'' represents.

Side note: ''Before eating Nikola Tesla - 'the father of electricity' - polished each piece of cutlery with eighteen napkins''. [QI Elves].

"Analogy of same. Different time; different author..."Formally it may be said, my whole being was possessed by egoism. All my manifestations and experiences flowed from my vanity......and from then on there gradually arose in me that ''something'' which has brought the whole of me to the unshakable conviction that, apart from the vanities of life, there exists a ''something else'' which must be the aim and ideal of every more or less thinking man, and that it is only this something else which may make a man really happy and give him real values, instead of the illusory ''goods'' with which in ordinary life he is always and in everything full." [Chapter 10 'Meetings with Remarkable Men'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Recall the same word {i.e., "something" - in the 'Help' section}.

Eastern equivalent..."The ego principle = ahamkara = ''i do,'' is the root cause of dualism [i.e.,higher/lower etc.,] or the seeming separation between man and his 'creator'. Ahamkara brings human beings under the sway of 'maya' {cosmic delusion'}, by which the subject 'ego' falsely appears as object..." Hence the link to objectivity - benefit of. Especially when its related to that ''internal'' stuff. See it? i.e.,.

Shekhinah to enlarge.

And/or: {as a working example}: ''The Torah is situated between two houses, one recondite and on high, the other more accessible. The one on high is the 'Great Voice' referred to in the verse: 'a great voice which did not cease' {Deut. v, 22}. This voice is in the recesses and is not heard or revealed, and when it issues from the throat {Taurus?} it utters the aspirate without sound and it 'flows' on without ceasing, though it is so tenuous as to be inaudible. From this issues the Torah which is the 'voice' of Jacob....This 'Great Voice' which cannot be heard is a house to the supernal Wisdom {the female is always called a ''house''}, and the articulation we have mentioned is  a ''house'' to the voice of Jacob, which is the Torah, and therefore the Torah commences with the letter beth, which is, as it were, a 'house' to it.'' [Page 295 'Meditations on the Tarot'].

Winged or flightless as a means....?

Continued: "Ken, crystals are little more than rocks. I began to explain how crystals are actually alive and conscious something that i realize is outside of normal consciousness but not outside of science. I showed him the periodic table of the elements...how carbon, the 6th element, is associated with all organic chemistry and everything that is normally considered to be alive. But directly below it, one octave below, is the element of silicon, the primary element of quartz Acrystal and 80% of the crust of the earth." ['Serpent of Light' - mentioned elsewhere].

 

“The Happy Prince” is a short story by Oscar Wilde, part of his collection of short stories titled The Happy Prince and Other Tales, published in May 1888. Other short stories in this collection are “The Happy Prince,” “The Nightingale and the Rose,” “The Selfish Giant,” “The Devoted Friend,” and “The Remarkable Rocket.” {i.e., 'five' in total}.
The story revolves around a magnificent statue covered in finery that stands guard over a city rife with injustice and inequity. Formerly a prince who lived a lavish but ignorant life, he is now frozen and can only bear witness to the problems of the city’s citizens.'' Medusa to enlarge.

A working example: ''Her name is Emma Marshall, and she wrote Crystal Diamonds at the Hot Wells, published in 1888. It all about the theft of a brooch at the Hot Wells. And this was my first discovery of how important Bristol Diamonds were to the Hot Wells Spa.'' ['Meet the Author: Melanie King on Spa's' / Mirthy ].

On the shoulders of giants?

''Bristol Diamonds are quartz crystals found in geodes and geological rock formations which occur in dolomitic conglomerate in the Avon Gorge in Bristol, England. Their origin lies in geological processes of the Triassic period, about 250 to 200 million years ago.

The Bristol Diamonds became popular novelties for visitors to the spa at Hotwells, Bristol, during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Diarist John Evelyn and travel writer Celia Fiennes were amongst those who described them. In popular culture they became a synonym for something bright but worthless.''

''The signs Gemini and Virgo are alloted to Mercury. This association accounts for Virgo sometimes represented with the caduceus.''

As fast as the dragon reconstitutes itself below, so Sol's shining rays thrust down between its grey-green scales {'carapace'?}, causing it to writhe and seethe.

''A common theme in myth associated with the boar include the pursuit of the end to tyranny, the test of great courage, the elimination of evil customs, the overthrow of old cycles and the gaining of valour. In Melanesia, the tusks of the boar are the proper adornments of chieftains and elders. They are seen as representing the crescent moon and the continuance of life after death. In Vedic and Hindu traditions Vishnu takes on the form of a boar to save the earth from chaotic waters and is the first one to plough the soil. Vajnavrahi is the goddess of the dawn in the form of a sow who is the source of all life.'' [Page 81 'The Element Encyclopedia of Magical Creatures' / J + C Matthews].

['In Search of the Miraculous'].

Happy or Sad? BEAN ears?

As one example: ''Feast of Fools, popular festival during the Middle Ages, held on or about January 1, particularly in France, in which a mock bishop or pope was elected, ecclesiastical ritual was parodied, and low and high officials changed places.....

Over the course of a week, the ceremonies would be led by different people in positions of power within the church. On December 26, St. Stephen’s Day, the deacons led the ceremonies. The sub-priests (or vicars) were in charge on December 27, St. John’s Day, the choirboys on December 28, Holy Innocents’ Day, and the sub-deacons on the first of January, the Feast of the Circumcision.[5] There is some disagreement on whether the term Feast of Fools was originally used to refer to the collection of days[5] or specifically the celebrations taking place on the first of January.[6] The word "fool" is used as a synonym for humble, as was common in the 11th century, rather than the modern use that treats it as another term for clown or jester.....

The Feast of the Epiphany and twelfth night festivities which fell in early January. This celebration of the visitation of the magi was, like the other customs, incorporated in the Feast of Fools. Another popular belief roots the King of the Bean tradition in the Saturnalia of ancient Rome.''

'Happy hour'?

Happy is one of the seven dwarfs in Disney’s 1937 animated feature film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. He gets his name from his jovial and optimistic demeanor. Most often seen with a cheery smile, he is partial to parties, food, and dancing—all of which he is eager to share with the other dwarfs1Interestingly, Happy was the only dwarf who introduced himself to the Disney Princess, Snow White; the rest were tongue-tied....

Happy introduces himself, while Snow White guesses the other dwarfs names.{'Pawn Stars' / S18 EP21}.

From a different perspective: .....and an oddly shaped half moon/boat with a prominent eye. Next comes an angry sun face with bulging spiral eyes, dumbbell-shaped mouth, and prominent chin. Sixteen large spikes and sixteen smaller spikes inside a containing outer circle surround the face. The sun circle itself is surrounded by four stars, placed in the corners of the rectangle and tilted so that their diagonal axes cut through the center point of the sun face. The final image is an oval that fills the entire space of the side and contains a cross with four A’s in it. The A’s are unusual for having a sharply angled crossbar rather than the usual horizontal one....

The phrase “hot on the heels” means in close pursuit of someone or something, or immediately after some event1. It originates from hunting terminology, where the “on the heels” part refers to a hunter’s literal closeness behind their quarry. The word “hot” alludes to the warmth of an active living creature, as opposed to the cold of a corpse or the unconsciousness of being “out cold”. When hounds are close to their prey, they are said to be “in hot pursuit.”

At first glance, the sun face is indeed a devouring sun as Boucher tells us. Its design is vaguely Mesoamerican, suggesting Aztec or Incan calendrical sun disks. None of our sources draws any attention to this obvious fact. While the angry sun does suggest a catastrophe motif, the more obvious Tarot image for this face is The Sun, trump 19. This card is attributed to Leo, and the Hebrew letter resh, the R of the Lallemant mansion’s enigmatic credence, is its Hebrew letter. Its simple meaning of “completion of a cycle” points to its basic meaning on the monument. The sun will complete a great cycle, perhaps even the great cycle, the monument implies. The sun face is opposite the eight-rayed star, and, as Boucher suggests, there is a numerical connection between them (see fig. 11.9). The star’s rays grow by a geometric progression on the sun face, doubling or crossing from 8 to 16 to 32. Mevryl’s idea of the sun behind the sun is suggestive, for it makes the star asymbol of Sirius. We are given no clue concerning the four stars surrounding the sun. Mevryl does have a few ideas on the stars, including the possibility that they are the inner and outer planets.!

If we think of Fulcanelli’s image of the dragon’s mouth, the center of the galaxy, spewing out flame and light, then the star might just relate to an eruption from the galactic center. Coupled with the angry sun face, this might also be a clue to the “double cataclysm.” The starlike disturbance from the center of the galaxy might trigger a reaction in our own sun, hence Fulcanelli’s insistence on a “double” catastrophe....

The event, which gave Abram his insight into the nature of time, which was the window of the letter heh needed to spell Abraham, was his covenant with God. At this event, we are told in Genesis, a fiery torch passed through the alignment of sacrifices from the northwest to the southeast, an alignment preserved to this day by the location of the Black Stone in the cube or Kaaba of Mecca. This line from the northwest to the southeast corner is the galactic axis, of course. Abraham’s covenant represents a shift from the High God of the El to a new hidden god controlling the temporal quality of the galactic axis and its alignments. This God, unlike the placid and benign El, could become angry and dispense judgment and destruction. ['The Mysteries of the Great Cross at Hendaye'].

The same question asked to the MANY bodies found in bogs. Enlarged throughout. Try ''marshes/fenland'' to begin with.

Refresher: "The Agnisuryans respond to the sound. The waters ebb and flow. Let the 'magician' guard himself from drowning, at the point where land and water meet. The midway spot, which is neither dry nor wet, must provide the standing place whereon his feet are set. When water, land and air meet there is the place for 'magic' to be wrought."

 

As part of that ''true poetry''. Others found throughout.

A working example: "On a rough, windy January day in the late thirteenth century, Lady de Mowbray, accompanied by her groom, rode along an uneven, muddy track near the village of Haxey, in Lincolnshire. Suddenly a fierce gust of wind caught her large silk hood and whisked it across a nearby field.

Not far off, thirteen men working on the land saw what had happened, and they all began to run after the hood, each striving for the honour of recovering it. As the hood hopped and swirled its way over the field, the men jostled and tumbled after it until, eventually, the strongest of them managed to catch it. But, although the captor was strong, he was too shy to hand the hood back personally to Lady Mowbray, so he gave it to one of his colleagues to return. Lady Mowbray had so enjoyed watching the chase that she promised to give each man a piece of land (her husband owned most of the parish of Haxey) if they could invent a game based on it. The game was to be played annually on 6th January.

Epiphany (/əˈpɪfəni/ ə-PIF-ə-nee), or Eid al-Ghitas (Arabicعيد الغِطاس),[4] also known as "Theophany" in Eastern Christian tradition,[5] is a Christian feast day commemorating the visit of the Magi, the baptism of Jesus, and the wedding at Cana.[6]

In Western Christianity, the feast commemorates principally (but not solely) the visit of the Magi to the Christ Child, and thus Jesus Christ's physical manifestation to the Gentiles.[7][8] It is sometimes called Three Kings' Day, and in some traditions celebrated as Little Christmas.[9] Moreover, the feast of the Epiphany, in some denominations, also initiates the liturgical season of Epiphanytide.

''Bridge'' on her left or right? As a means....?

Hooded Women: Lady de Mowbray.

Continued: "She christened the men ‘Plough Boggins’, and to the man who handed her the hood she gave the title ‘My Lord’, but to the shy silent stalwart who actually caught it she bestowed the name of ‘Fool’. She further decreed that, for the game, the players should wear red jackets, all except the Fool, who should wear a harlequin costume. Today, the ‘Haxey Hood Game’ represents one of the most elaborate revivals of the many ancient games played in England, although some people doubt whether Lady Mowbray and her wayward hood represent the true origin of the event. Another theory is that the game represents the survival of an ancient Celtic hilltop ceremony involving sun-worship and human sacrifice. The pagan practice of ‘purifying’ the sacrificial victims by ceremonial smoking is retained in a modified form in the modern re-enactment. Christian teachings opposed such barbaric practices and, as with other pagan festivals, they were eventually modified and incorporated into revised ceremonies.

Bridge over troubled waters?

Historians refer to the fact that right up to the period 1627-31, when the fens were drained, Haxey, in the Isle of Axholme, with its innumerable dykes, marshes and bogs, was virtually cut off from the rest of the country, and its inhabitants were regarded as savages. In such an area, old festivals would have flourished. Today’s ceremony follows very closely the ancient rules of the game. The ‘Lord’ is a permanent official, recognised for his knowledge of the game, and his eleven ‘Boggins’ are chosen at a meeting held on St. John’s Eve (26th December) at which time plans are made for the coming festivities. At midday on 6th January, work in the village comes to a halt, and soon a crowd assembles on Haxey Church Green."

From a different perspective: ''My thesis is that the language of poetic myth anciently current in the Mediterranean and Northern Europe was a' magical' language bound up with popular religious ceremonies in honour of the moon goddess, or muse, some of them dating from the Old Stone Age, and that this remains the language of TRUE poetry....but it is only fair to warn the reader that this remains a very difficult book, as well as a very queer one {'peculiar'?}, to be avoided by anyone with a distracted, tired or rigidly scientific mind...."

''According to a theory presented in the 1630s, at the time of Swedish colonisation of coastal areas of Finland, colonists from Hälsingland in central Sweden had arrived at what is now known as the Vantaa River and called it Helsingå ("Helsinge River"), which gave rise to the names of Helsinge village and church in the 1300s.[24] This theory is questionable, because dialect research suggests that the settlers arrived from Uppland and nearby areas.[25] Others have proposed the name as having been derived from the Swedish word helsing, an archaic form of the word hals (neck), referring to the narrowest part of a river, the rapids.[26] Other Scandinavian cities at similar geographic locations were given similar names at the time, e.g. Helsingør in Denmark and Helsingborg in Sweden.

When a town was founded in Forsby village (later known as Koskela) in 1548, it was named Helsinge fors, "Helsinge rapids". The name refers to the Vanhankaupunginkoski [fi] rapids at the mouth of the river.[27] The town was commonly known as Helsinge or Helsing, from which the contemporary Finnish name arose.''

Side note: The narrator Neil Oliver {'World of Stonehenge' / Part 1 } - talks about what man thought about in the religious sense 10,000 years ago in reference to deer antlers which are described as the remnants of a possible Mesolithic religion. ''Could have been a disguise more than likely ceremonial / ritual. When the person wore this he became something else, something more than a man. A transformation took place....becoming a red deer stag {or doe?} or maybe a hybrid...they were so much a part of nature, living within it, enveloped by it, and depending upon it not just in a practical everyday sense but in a profoundly magical and spiritual way as well. But as we know nature can be a very cruel mistress.''

''In 1517 the Ottomans took control of Palestine, leaving a deep footprint there. Pilgrims visiting Jerusalem today can still contemplate the city walls that Suleiman the Magnificent restored around the Old City.

Something 'new'?

At this time, pilgrimages were still rare, but the Franciscans, who lived there, wrote down what they saw. One of them was Fr. Francesco Quaresmio (1583-1650), an enthusiast of the Holy Land. After spending several years there, and even taking over the Custody of the Holy Land for a few months, he left us a detailed description in his book Terrae Sanctae Elucidatio. Fr. Quaresmio writes that Mary Magdalene’s castle was called Magdalum, and “some claim that they saw her house.” For this author, the name Magdalum indicated “the towers and magnificent walls with which the castle was equipped”—in Aramaic, magdala means tower or fortress. And he adds: “This is why St. Jerome said that Mary was rightly called ‘Magdalene’, that is, ‘the one of the tower’, because of her singular faith and unwavering courage.”

Fr. Quaresmio’s writing is interesting for several reasons, but I would like to underline just one: the symbolic interpretation of the Magdalene’s name. She was not only called this because she was originally from Magdala, but because she had a faith and love like a “magdala”, like a fortress. The Magdalene is like the holy city of Jerusalem, about which Isaiah sang: “We have a strong city; God makes salvation its walls and ramparts.”

bbbb-2 Mark Tully explores bitterness in all its forms - as a taste and emotion: 'With bitter herbs they shall eat': At Passover bitter herbs are eaten as a reminder of the bitterness of slavery. In the present day represented with horse - radish.  [Radio 4. 18/11/18].

Side note: ''Animated adventures of characters in a herb garden, such as Sir Basil and Lady Rosemary, Bayleaf the gardener, Sage the owl, Dill the dog and Parsley the lion.''

The herb Basil {of the mint family} - is derived from the Greek for 'royal' or 'kingly'....Basilica also connected.

''The Latin word basilica derives from Ancient Greek: βασιλική στοά, romanizedbasilikḗ stoá, lit.'royal stoa'. The first known basilica—the Basilica Porcia in the Roman Forum—was constructed in 184 BC by Marcus Porcius Cato (the Elder).[2] After the construction of Cato the Elder's basilica, the term came to be applied to any large covered hall, whether it was used for domestic purposes, was a commercial space, a military structure, or religious building.''

And/or: ''Ashura, also known as Yawm Ashura is the tenth day of Muharram, the first month in the Islamic calendar {'Aries'?}. For Sunni Muslims, Ashura marks the day that Moses and the Israelites were saved from Pharaoh by God creating a path in the Sea. For Shia Muslims, it marks the day that Husayn ibn Ali, the grandson of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, was martyred in the Battle of Karbala. Ashura is a major holy day and occasion for pilgrimage in Shia Islam, as well as a recommended but non-obligatory day of fasting in Sunni Islam.'' [Internet].

''In the Old Testament - in the Book of Ruth - Naomi; Ruth's mother in law, leaves Moab where she has lost her husband and two sons. She and Ruth goes to her home town Bethlehem where the barley harvest {'sweet'?} was beginning.. There she tells the people who greet her to call her Mara - which means bitter. Then Ruth marries Boaz owner of the barley and they have a son who becomes the grandson of King David. The women including Naomi celebrate the birth of this 'son' - for Naomi the bitterness has now changed into sweetness." Same radio program.

County flag of Rutland. 'Acorns and horseshoes'? 'Seven' HIDDEN spaces?

And/or: The origin of the name of the county is unclear. In a 1909 edition of Notes and Queries Harriot Tabor suggested "that the name should be Ruthland, and that there is a part of Essex called the Ruth, and that the ancient holders of it were called Ruthlanders, since altered to Rutland";[3] however, responses suggest "that Rutland, as a name, was earlier than the Norman Conquest. Its first mention, as "Roteland", occurs in the will of Edward the Confessor; in Domesday it is "the King's soc of Roteland", not being then a shire; and in the reign of John it was assigned as a dowry to Queen Isabella.[4]

The northwestern part of the county was recorded as Rutland, a detached part of Nottinghamshire, in Domesday Book; the south-eastern part as the wapentake of Wicelsea in Northamptonshire. It was first mentioned as a separate county in 1159, but as late as the 14th century it was referred to as the 'Soke of Rutland'. Rutlandshire is an archaic and rarely used alternative name.

The most ancient of Sea dragons.

Rutland may be from Old English hryþr or hrythr "cattle" and land "land", as a record from 1128 as Ritelanede shows. However, A Dictionary of British Place-Names by A D Mills gives an alternative etymology, "Rota's land", from the Old English (Anglo-Saxon) personal name and land land.[5] It is from the alternative interpretation of red land that the traditional nickname for a male person from Rutland, a "Raddle Man", derives.'' [Wiki].

Continued: "Jewish Rabbis asserted that the tribe of Naphtali adopted this sign as their banner emblem: ''Naphtali as if a hind let loose'' - as if Capricorn were a deer, or antelope {desert one?} - others ascribed it to Benjamin, or to Reuben; but Aquarius more fitly represented the latter."

[Page 29 'Archaeology' / Jan-Feb 2023].

Side note: ''The Austral Islands are the southernmost group of islands in French Polynesia {S/W}, and such paddles were traded with Europeans who visited the islands on whaling ships during the first half of the century; it has been conjectured that they developed from earlier ceremonial paddles. The paddle is highly decorated, with crisply-carved repeating triangular motifs including ‘toothed suns’, which comprise concentric circles surrounded by ‘niho’ or triangular teeth, a feature prominent in Austral Islands carving. Indeed, many such paddles would have been carved using sharks’ teeth. The pommel at the top of the shaft is encircled by stylised figures wearing alternating headdresses {'eight' in total}....''

Continued: ''Charbagh or Chahar Bagh (Persian: چھارباغ, romanizedchahār bāgh, Hindi: चारबाग़ chārbāgh, Urdu: چار باغ chār bāgh, meaning "four gardens" in Persian) is a Persian and Indo-Persian quadrilateral garden layout based on the four gardens of Paradise mentioned in the Quran. The quadrilateral garden is divided by walkways or flowing water into four smaller parts.[1] They are found in countries throughout Western Asia and South Asia, including Iran and India.[2]

''The Chahrbagh-e Abbasi (or Charbagh Avenue) in Isfahan, Iran, built by Shah Abbas the Great in 1596, and the garden of the Taj Mahal in India are the most famous examples of this style. In the Charbagh at the Taj Mahal, each of the four parts contains sixteen flower beds.''

And/or: Hero and Leander is the Greek myth relating the story of Hero (Ancient Greek: Ἡρώ, Hērṓ; [hɛː.rɔ̌ː]), a priestess of Aphrodite (Venus in Roman mythology) who dwelt in a tower in Sestos on the European side of the Hellespont, and Leander (Ancient Greek: Λέανδρος, Léandros), a young man from Abydos on the opposite side of the strait. Leander fell in love with Hero and would swim every night across the Hellespont to spend time with her. Hero would light a lamp at the top of her tower to guide his way.

Beginning or end? Khafre to enlarge.

Succumbing to Leander's soft words and to his argument that Aphrodite, as the goddess of love and sex, would scorn the worship of a virgin, Hero succumbed to his charms and they made love. Their secret love affair lasted through a warm summer. They had agreed to part during winter and resume in the spring due to the nature of the waters. One stormy winter night, Leander saw the torch at the top of Hero's tower. The strong winter wind blew out Hero's light and Leander lost his way and drowned. When Hero saw his dead body, she threw herself over the edge of the tower to her death to be with him.

Their bodies washed up on shore together in an embrace and they were buried in a lover's tomb on the shore.''

Something closer to the 'mark' {key}: ''In Bible alchemy, Pisces represents Naphtali, the sixth son of Jacob, and means ''wrestling's of God.'' In the symbolism of the New Testament, Pisces corresponds to the disciple Philip. The birth of Benjamin is given in that wonderful allegory, the 35th {'thirtyfive'} chapter of Genesis. Benjamin is, therefore, the '13th' { 'thirteen'} child of Jacob.'' [Page 43 'The Zodiac and the Salts of Salvation' / Inez Perry].

Side note 2: "The blessed name, YHVH, which is the mystery of the Middle Pillar, is called Atah {THOU}. This is the mystery of all of gods banners and appellations.

And/or: ''The goddess Bast is invoked to inspire in us the sensual beauty that feeds our passion to create. Our renewed heart, the ab, is the seat of consciousness; it houses the essential desire that fuels the creative process....and in these Mysteries as Wholeness - that create the birth canal through which our souls purpose incarnates as it takes form on Earth.....That is why it is called the 'Fall'. It is the Fall into incarnation.....Falling is just another side of rising.'' [Page 104 'Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt' / N. Scully + L. S. Wolf].

Recall information on Uas {'Was'} sceptre. 'Rising' only?

From a different perspective: {with something extra?}:  ''This concept of Celli Wig, a seat of government and therefore symbolic of the central recess of Arthurs soul, raises the whole question of the significance of the topographical description insisted on throughout this myth. That a 'boar hunt' should range from the west of Ireland, across the Irish Channel, to West Wales, thence to South Wales as far as the river Severn, and now be threatening Cornwall, clearly indicates some psychic concept.''

''The full ancient Egyptian royal titulary consisted of up to five names meant to symbolise the power and might of the pharaoh:

  • Horus name — the oldest form of a pharaoh's name, often enclosed in a serekh, a sort of "heraldic crest" representing a palace facade.
  • Nebty name — the "Two Ladies", the heraldic goddesses Nekhbet and Wadjet, representing Upper and Lower Egypt respectively.
  • Gold name — gold was strongly associated with eternity, but the meaning of this title is disputed.
  • Throne name — (prenomen) the first of the two names written in a cartouche.
  • Personal name — (nomen) the name given at birth, often the name by which a pharaoh is known today.

The full titulary was announced at the coronation, when a pharaoh officially became king.''

'Flag' of Djibouti - within the Horn of Africa. The tail end of something?

Every summer, thousands of tourists flock to Wisconsin’s Door County peninsula. Businesses shuttered throughout the winter and spring reopen to sell food and souvenirs as people explore the county’s cherry orchards and state parks. At Northport, at the tip of the peninsula, ferries run between the mainland and Washington Island, crossing a channel French sailors nicknamed Porte des Morts or “Death’s Door” for the large number of shipwrecks swept up in the currents.
But right before arriving at Death’s Door, travelers are thrown for a curve—or fifteen to be more specific. An unusually twisty stretch of Highway 'fortytwo', built in the early 1930s, has baffled visitors for decades. Who designed this surreal stretch of road? All clues would seem to point to the well-known Danish-American landscape architect Jens Jensen, so much so that locals have even nicknamed it, “Jensen’s Road.” And while Jensen did plenty for Door County, from founding a local school to helping layout parks, it turns out the story of Highway 42 is as full of twists as the road itself. {'Atlas Obscura'}.

It was said that such 'baskets' containd the limbs of Osiris which had been gathered by the sisters....High priests from each of the 'fortytwo' nomes carried the canopic JARS that contained the relics of OSIRIS that were ''gathered into a single body''. On the 12th day of the month, two black cows were YOKED together to a plough made of tamarisk and a ploughshare of black copper....The 12th day of the month was also the time at which the Orionid meteor showers occured, which we still see in mid October - this resembles scattered seed falling from the body of the Orion constellation, which is the sahu, or light body of Osiris.''

I would be hustling my son out the door to get him to school, or walking briskly to work on the day of a deadline, or castigating myself for being online when I should have been methodically and efficiently putting words on paper, and I would have this vision of myself as a character in a video game discovering a secret level. This vision was informed by the platform games I loved as a child – Super Mario Bros, Sonic the Hedgehog and so on – in which the character you controlled moved across the screen from left to right through a scrolling landscape, encountering obstacles and adversaries as you progressed to the end of the level. In this daydream, I would see myself pushing against a wall or lowering myself down the yawning mouth of a pipe, and thereby discovering this secret level, this hidden chamber where I could exist for a time outside of time, where the clock was not forever running down to zero."

The center niche is Tiferet, here displaced upward and focused on the rising-sun/scallop-shell motif above the inscription. The bottom step represents the foundation of Yesod and the greenery below it symbolizes Malkuth. The three pillars of the Tree are clearly delineated. The middle pillar is curiously focused on the rising sun of Tiferet, with another larger, inner sun—“fire above the abyss,” as the I Ching puts it—rising above the ledge attributed to Daat. The ornamentation in this space suggests the geometry found on another Daat image given by Fulcanelli, that of the Planetary Metals from Notre-Dame-de-Paris....

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

AND/OR: According to one popular writer, it is a means of obtaining self-knowledge through breaking down the shell of fantasy in which the ordinary person is confined. Analysis is sometimes defined as a process the object of which is to enhance consciousness. It proceeds by making conscious those unconscious elements in the instinctual and morally compulsive life which experience demonstrates to be in conflict with or untrue to reality. The crystallization of the field of consciousness, with its consequent narrowing of the possibilities of experience, produces a species of living death. The alchemists proposed to kill death. Their object, by the psychological method of interpretation, was to disintegrate this inflexible rigidity of mind....

'Glass' of wine or water?

This process they call the dissolution or putrefaction. Consciousness is broken down into its component parts. From this apparently amorphous and homogenous resultant, it was their intention to reassemble the fundamental elements of consciousness on an entirely new and healthy basis. It was proposed to establish another foundation altogether, one capable of functioning in a completely regal and spiritual way. So that the divine root which, according to their theory, had become occultated and subordinated by the presumption of man’s ego, is able to manifest through a mentality which is free from the defects which characterize the average intelligence. Consciousness is to be vivified utterly and is not separated from the Unconscious by a sharp and unnatural cleavage or partition from the other levels of the psyche. Thus the contents of the one part, by a reversal of values and functions, have full access of entry into the other, and vice versa....The true furnace is a little simple shell; thou mayst easily carry it in one of thy hands. The glass is one and no more; but some philosophers have used two, and so mayst thou. As for the work itself, it is no way troublesome.... ['The Philosophers Stone'].

Hatshepsut had her tomb dug in the Valley of the Kings (KV 20) by her vizier and High Priest of Amun, Hapuseneb. She had previously had a tomb cut for herself as queen regnant under Tuthmosis II, its entrance 220 ft (72 m) up a 350-ft (91-m) cliff face in a remote valley west of the Valley of the Kings. This was found by local people in 1916 and investigated by Howard Carter in rather dangerous circumstances. The tomb had never been used and still held the sandstone sarcophagus inscribed for the queen. Carter wrote: 'as a king, it was clearly necessary for her to have her tomb in The Valley like all other kings - as a matter of fact I found it there myself in 1903 - and the present tomb was abandoned. She would have been better advised to hold to her original plan. In this secret spot her mummy would have had a reasonable chance of avoiding disturbance: in The Valley it had none. A king she would be, and a king's fate she shared.'

"You can follow two paths in the mountains, Her-Bak,'' said the sage. ''The first winds round it with many a twist, exploring; the slope is gentle, the ascent easy, varied, amusing. This path avoids points of danger. It never attacks the Peak {of silence?} and halts at shelters known to be safe. The other is steep {cliff?}, takes each phase of the climb without detour, skirts precipices {'overhangs'?} and reaches a summit that is only accessible to a man who can face naked sunlight and danger. Which path will you choose Her-Bak?'' [Page 89 'Her-Bak: Egyptian Initiate' / Isha Schwaller de Lubicz].

And/or: "A Latin inscription covering the entire width of the 'fireplace' can be read above the symbolic panels which were up to now the subject of our study.

This sign, a little lozenge, was called by the Greeks Rombos {to be mistaken or go astray - to turn around}....Nascendo gives the idea of generation or production i.e., in order to generate.....The parents of the Hermetic child speak....The stone of the philosophers is born from the 'destruction' of the two bodies - the philosophers stone - or our 'mercury', its next matter - is also born from the fight....the essential operations of the art always has two principles producing a 'third' one {Son of?}, and that generation depends upon a preliminary decomposition of its agents. Further more philosophical 'mercury' itself, sole substance of the art can never yield anything unless it dies, ferments, and putrefies at the end of the first stage of the Work."

A working example {with something extra}: ''Lets look at the word 'Xeper'.

A. Wallis....it allowed for a 'death' that had both power in the real world {'east'?} and potential for knowing the secrets of the cosmos in the next world {'west'?]….Very old in Egyptian religion....I was not the first to utter Xeper. According to mythology the first was Mehen-Pet-Tha - mentioned by 'Set' {'shadow'} in the 'The Book of Coming Forth by Night' {Duat?}. I had really looked for that name in writings about New Kingdom times: the board game of Horus and Set called Mehen was popular then.....'She who kindles celestial fire' - belonging to a 'princess' of the second dynasty - the son of Peribsen, the only pharaoh to call himself a ''Living Set'' rather than a 'Living Horus''....As a 'princess' he would have been a high priest..."

In Greek mythology, Memnon (/ˈmɛmnən/; Ancient Greek: Μέμνων means 'resolute'[1]) was a king of Aethiopia and son of Tithonus and Eos. As a warrior he was considered to be almost Achilles' equal in skill. During the Trojan War, he brought an army to Troy's defense and killed Antilochus, Nestor's son, during a fierce battle. Nestor challenged Memnon to a fight, but Memnon refused, being there was little honor in killing the aged man. Nestor then pleaded with Achilles to avenge his son's death. Despite warnings that soon after Memnon fell so too would Achilles, the two men fought. Memnon drew blood from Achilles, but Achilles drove his spear through Memnon's chest, sending the Aethiopian army running. The death of Memnon echoes that of Hector, another defender of Troy whom Achilles also killed out of revenge for a fallen comrade, Patroclus

Continued: ''Hatshepsut's second tomb was located at the foot of the cliffs in the eastern corner of the Valley of the Kings. The original intention seems to have been for a passage to be driven through the rock to locate the burial chamber under the sanctuary of the queen's temple on the other side of the cliffs. In the event, bad rock was struck and the tomb's plan takes a great U-turn back on itself to a burial chamber that contained two yellow quartzite sarcophagi, one inscribed for Tuthmosis I and the other for Hatshepsut as king. The queen's mummy has never been identified, although it has been suggested that a female mummy rediscovered in 1991 in KV 21 (the tomb of Hatshepsut's nurse) might have been her body.''

''The original star people were the Pawnee. Though some tribes held similar beliefs in later times. The Pawnee saw their ultimate home as being amongst the stars. The Pawnee used the stars as guides. From these ideas they began to build their dwellings in the shape of domes. Which was a reference to the sky. The placement of their dwellings were also aligned with stars in the sky. The centers of their dwellings were held up with poles that were marked white, yellow, red, and black as colours of the stars. White stood for Sirius, yellow for Capella, red for Antares, and black for Vega. These stars are the Four Direction Stars.''

Guarding 'apple' trees?

From a different perspective: Something {purposely} hinted at: "Pliny the Elder, writing in the 1st century A.D. is perhaps the most notorious non-eye-witness of them all, relying on the testimony of others to speak of animals that even the original observers did not linger to describe too carefully. What Pliny and others have observed {or not actually witnessed} is similar to the half truths and observations that we make about all animals around us in the natural world. One of the reasons we believe animals behave in certain ways is due to our lack of patience or to the rationalist or fabulist's fall back which conveniently explains away why a thing is so. The real observer of the natural {key} world soon learns a better truth, although may still not always understand what is being witnessed. It is only recently, for example, that scientists have learned that whale-song is not just about communicating with other whales but about the practical ultrasonic mapping of coastlines and sea beds {and 'mounts'} by which whales steer their course. Yet, within our own lifetime, we have heard the most fabulist explanations of whale-song which have inspired composers...The sources of this book are varied. Where possible we have gone to the first tellers of tales as much as to the most recent accounts. Many of these early reporters lived at a time when only the known world was mapped. The 'uncharted' regions, as in many mariners maps of the sea, had {in one of its 'corners'} the image of the whale to indicate the presence of 'sea monsters'..." [From the book by J. and C.

As an example: "Who am I? Where am I going? What is it all for? If these questions have been running through your head {'back of'?} lately, you have begun the ultimate quest, which in one form, is to answer questions such as these, and in another is perhaps the attainment of the Holy Grail. In many countries people ask these questions and instead of turning within - where the ultimate answers must surely lie - they turn to experts, psychoanalysts, and psychologists in the hope that other people can explain what they, the individuals , are about...It might seem daunting to have to look at and map your own feelings, but you can spend a few minutes each day thinking about how you feel....From your own secret journal you will begin to discover patterns of your own emerging. This is the beginning of the 'magical' journey of inner exploration. You are mapping an uncharted 'country' which you alone can visit totally. You can become your own expert and gradually, when you have learned to change your awareness from the immediate world to that inner one, you will be able to make long expeditions to gain new knowledge."

Possibly these two distinct styles of figure are intended to represent male and female forms respectively.[8] These figures are symmetrically distributed across A'a, with the exception of those on the lower abdomen, where there is an upright figure on the right side of A'a and a splayed figure on the left. It is not clear whether this asymmetry was deliberate.''

''Recent wood analysis has shown A’a was carved from sandalwood. As sandalwood is not endemic to Rurutu, it must have been traded in from a neighbouring island. The wood’s scent, which acts as an insect repellent, may have been factor in its selection....During the process of removing the wood samples, a small red feather was noticed, caught on a splinter inside the cavity. The feather was taken to the Natural History Museum, where it was identified as being from a Kuhl’s lorikeet (Vini kuhlii), now an endangered species {nectar/honey link}. Red feathers were among the most valuable and sacred materials in Polynesia, and were associated with the divine. This reveals that whatever was stored inside A’a’s hollow interior was of the highest value to islanders. Curators believe that the figure would have originally been made to hold the bones of an important ancestor; the small red feather may have been part of their wrappings....Contemporary Rurutuans explain that the exterior figures correspond to the kinship groups that make up their society, and propose a number of theories about the relationship between the figure and Christianity.''

Sandalwood oil has a distinctive soft, warm, smooth, creamy, and milky precious-wood scent. Its quality and scent profile is greatly influenced by the age of the tree, location and the skill of the distiller. It imparts a long-lasting, woody base to perfumes from the oriental, woody, fougère, and chypre families, as well as a fixative to floral and citrus fragrances. When used in smaller proportions in a perfume, it acts as a fixative, enhancing the longevity of other, more volatile, materials in the composite. Sandalwoods are medium-sized hemiparasitic trees, and part of the same botanical family as European mistletoe. Sandalwood is indigenous to the tropical belt of the peninsular India, Malay Archipelago and northern Australia.[6][7] The main distribution is in the drier tropical regions of India and the Indonesian islands of Timor and Sumba.[8] It spread to other regions through the Incense trade route by the vast Indian and Arab mercantile networks and the Chinese maritime trade routes until the sixteenth century CE''

Limitation is the necessary condition of manifestation, because the only conceivable way that the Life-Power can enter into existence at all is by concentrating its activity at some definite point in space {'coal sacks'? 'Ostrich nest'?} - and that concentration is a self limitation. Boundaries of some kind are required for definiteness. Liberty does not consist in the removal of all conditions, in the absence of all restrictions.

Nature moves not by the theory of men but by their practice, and surely wit and reason can perform no miracles unless the hands supply them. Be sure then to know this fire in the first place, and accordingly be sure to make use of it. But for thy better security I will describe it to thee once more. It is a dry, vaporous, humid fire; it goes round about the glass and is both equal and continual. It is restless, and some have called it the white philosophical coal. It is in itself natural, but the preparation of it is artificial. It is a heat of the dead, wherefore some call it their unnatural, necromantic fire. It is no part of the matter, neither is it taken out of it; but it is an external fire and serves only to stir up and strengthen the inward oppressed fire of the chaos. But let us hear Nature herself, for thus she speaks in the serious romance of Mehung....

“Behind will stands desire.” So runs an alchemical aphorism. This can be assumed to imply that desire directs will, and gives to it an object to achieve. Or else it may imply that the basis or background of the Will is desire or emotion, and that the former has grown out of the latter, as an evolution or sublimation, even as consciousness depends upon the Unconscious. The motive power of the instinctual life is the libido, desire, the vital spirit, while the motive power of the intellectual life is the Will. In its developments and peregrinations, in its eclipse by the magnetic trance state, the will loses its former sense of direction. But having almost reached the verge of annihilation, so to speak, reaching the nadir of its life, it restores itself by an effort which is mighty beyond words. One step towards this divine restoration is the fierceness of its fire and heat, as though desperation towards life urged forth every ounce of inherent vitality. At this stage, when it associates itself with and is given life by desire, the emotional nature, it is often called the Vitriol of Venus or the Green Lion, both implying the volitional power of penetration, fiery and crude, of immature but evolving spiritual energy....

Our text says of the fire that “it is in itself natural, but the preparation of it is artificial”. This we have already understood from our perusal of the former texts. And Vaughan goes on to remark that “it is not part of the matter, neither is it taken out of it, but it is an external fire and serves only to stir up and strengthen the inward oppressed fire of the Chaos”. Here we are back once more on familiar ground. In occultism there can be no initiation - that is “ the commencement of a new interior life - in a candidate or aspirant without an initiator.

The medium (that is the astro-mental sheath) in its natural state is volatile, immanifest, fantastic, irrational and impotent, compared with what it subsequently is able and by artificial conception suffers itself to become. The Alchemists, we repeat therefore, did not remain satisfied with a few passes of the hand or any first phenomena whatever, but they proceeded at once scientifically to purify, depriving the ether of its wild affections and impressures by a dissolution of the circulating body in its own blood. For this is the brazen Wall celebrated by Antiquity. Take the occult Nature, which is our Brass, says Albertus, and wash it that it may be pure and clean. ['The Philosophers Stone' / I. Regardie].

Spirit or soul?

Continued: "Among the great initiate wisdom which has proceeded from China is the literature attached to the 'Book of Change', the I Ching...Among the basic sixtyfour archetypal figures {images?} or hexagrams, is one which deals with inner truth. The Chinese character {image?} which denotes  'truth' is an archaic picture of a bird resting its protective claws on the head of a newly hatched 'young'. The ancient sages pictured truth as a delicate thing, egg born, and in perpetual need of protection. "

Broken/UNbroken as a means....?

And/or: ''Esoteric or {mind set} - calls the important stage of development, wherein we become conscious in sleep, ''continuity {or unbrokenness} of consciousness''. For a person who has reached this stage of development, perception and experience are no longer interupted by those periods when the body rests and the soul no longer recieves impressions from the senses - consciousness is UNBROKEN.'' [Page 171 'How to Know Higher Worlds' / R. Steiner].

A beginning or ending?

REFRESHER: "It is interesting that we define 'swt' by the form of an egg and 'sah' by the seal that fastens an envelope. Our ancient texts often speak of the dead man who must ''break his egg''. It happens in such texts that 'swh' is given by the sign for a 'city' {nwt}: it isn't a question of a city but of the dead man's own nwt, his egg, his surviving envelope {'boundary'. Personal one?}. A man's nwt is like the celestial Nut whose physical organs are the constellations of the zodiac. Their functions differ, in man's body as in 'hers' {animus?}, but their influences interpenetrate, though they can only communicate with essentially identical states, and through an intermediary {phoenix? or 'Thoth' i.e., ''wisdom''}. The 'heart' is in sympathy with the intermediary and plays the same part in man's body as the sun does in the universe....Hathor who holds earth, heaven and the Duat in contemplation....Hathor, house of divine Horus, of ''your Neter that is in your egg''. Make her eyes yours that you may see the celestial luminaries....It was wise, when you framed your question, to associate the idea of various regions with that of different states of being in the Duat: you cant separate them. Just as a city {nwt} is an assemblage of ''atmospheres'' emanating from heaven and from men, which give the 'city' its character, so also a mans nwt is a complex of influences and impressions that sum up the states of successive personalities..." [Pages 212-214 'Her-Bak']. All as a means...?

Refresher: ''An 'envelope' is the name given to a membrane which forms the outer layer of certain viruses.'' ['The Chase'].

Side note: Know, my son, that in the hen’s egg is the greatest proximity and relationship in nature; for in it there is a spirituality and conjunction of elements, and an earth which is golden in its tincture....For the work begins from the vegetable, next from the animal, as in the egg of the hen, in which is the great support; and our earth is gold, of all which we make seriacum, which is the ferment Ixir.....The egg of the philosophers refers to the aura, the ovoid emanation exuding from and surrounding the astro-mental form. It is this shape which is the subject of the work. When brought to fulfilment, it glows and scintillates most brilliantly like some more than precious gem. ['The Philosophers Stone'].

Egg? ''Truth'' found within it?

Continued: "Interestingly, Libra was not included in the earliest zodiacs. It is believed to have been known to the Egyptians as Zugon - the 'Yoke'{enlarged elsewhere} - where only the beam of the scales was represented, typifying the Nilometer, the instrument by which the inundations of the Nile were measured. According to some Arkadian writings, the name of the 7th month was Tulku meaning Holy Altar...Libra is the only sign that is represented with something inanimate..." ['Birthstones.Me'].

Question. Libra {'claws'} link to ''scratch'' / ''7th'' / ''balance'' / altar / 180 degrees etc., All as a means...?

And/or: ''Libra is the sign of initiation'' AND ''Janus is the god of initiation.'' Enlarged elsewhere.

'64' ?

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

Understanding such 'information' {as one example} gets us closer in deciphering Homers 'secret' Illiad - therefore subject material {mind set?} - as a whole.

Linear A

''The Phaistos Disc (also spelled Phaistos Disk, Phaestos Disc) is a disk of fired clay from the Minoan palace of Phaistos on the island of Crete.''

And/or: "The circle is an image of pure 'spirit'...The crescent {semi-circle} that for the 'soul'...The vertical line that for the 'mind' and the horizontal line that for the 'body'. When the mind and body are combined, they form the 'cross of matter'. [Page 6 'Mapping the Psyche']. Try ''semi-circle'' for a connection.

Linear A/B ?

''No complete texts in Linear A have ever been deciphered. The term 'linear' derives from script that was written by using a stylus to cut lines into a clay tablet, as opposed to “cuneiform,” which was written by using a stylus to press wedge shaped letters into the clay.''

Glastonbury Tor {'tower'} a link to 'Broch' by way of ''Burh''. Opened 'top' as opposed to closed. St. Michael associated with it - therefore 'sun' rather than 'moon'. Of 'pagan' origins therefore early A.D. Northeast in relation to Southwest. The tail end of something begins the process {and/or development?} of...?

Or more importantly - ALL AS A MEANS...?

''Grooved ware is the name given to a pottery style of the British Neolithic. Its manufacturers are sometimes known as the Grooved ware people. Unlike the later Beaker ware, Grooved culture was not an import from the continent but seems to have developed in Orkney, early in the 3rd millennium BC, and was soon adopted in Britain and Ireland.[1]

Refresher: ''There is some copper on Rousay which could have been easily accessed, through the tin required to make this alloy - from Cornwall - hinting at a very long commercial connection.'' [Page 24 'Current Archaeology' / March 2023].

Glastonbury?

Side note: {Exercise?}: "What would have made such a sighting easier, in antiquity, would have been a tall tower annexed to the temple that once stood here - a temple dedicated to Su-En {usually contracted to Sin}, the Moon god of the Sabians. After telling us that there were 'powerful images in this temple', the Greek philosopher Libanius {AD314-394}, describes the tower, noting that: 'from its top one could overlook the entire plain of Harran'....'' And/or "I went off and sat down at the waters {fresh?} of Dan, to the south of the west of Hermon...I fell asleep and behold a dream came to me..." [Page 335/342 'The Magicians of the Gods'].

''Overlook''?

A work in progress: ''The Jewish Talmud, a 4th century AD source, referred to Magdala as Migdal-Nunya, meaning ''tower of fish''....This is one explanation for the origin of the town's name, Migdal, meaning tower.....'The lake supplies fish for pickling, and on its banks grow fruit bearing trees resembling apple trees' {Strabo}.... The harbor, most likely in use up until 67AD....Archaeologists believe that shortly after the conquest, flooding covered the northern side of Magdala, burying thus preserving it for 2000 years.'' [Pages 16/25/30 'Mary Magdalene: Insights From Ancient Magdala' / J. Ristine].

Isaac's point?

And/or: {something hinted at}: " After the stress and shock of the sudden awakening to the fundamental error of separateness - after the lightening flash of true knowledge has toppled the crown off the Tower of Common Sense - as shown in the 16th Major Trump, there comes a period of calm and gradual growth. In the second stage which we considered in the previous lesson, there is a sudden and painful overthrow of the 'false' wisdom of the world, a momentary, but never-to-be-forgotten glimpse of reality, of the absolute unity of life. In the 'third' stage this new conception of the Oneness of all, begins gradually to unfold. What happens to this unfoldment, and the specific activities involved therein, we may discover from the study of the 17th key of the Tarot....This picture develops the esoteric meaning of the Hebrew letter Tzaddi, named the ''fish hook''....That which pulls the 'fish' {Nun, i.e.,14th letter} OUT of Water {Mem, i.e., 13th letter}….''To hook'' is to draw, to entice, to procure....Has a particular application to the Christian aspects to the Ageless Wisdom, i.e., Jesus chose fishermen for disciples, and promised them that they should become 'fishers of men'...."

river-brue

The Tor is in the middle of the Summerland Meadows, part of the Somerset levels. The plain is reclaimed fen above which the Tor is clearly visible...It has been described as an island but actually sits at the western end of a peninsula washed on three sides by the RIVER Brue." [Wiki/river Brue]. River in relation to 'Sea'.

Continued: "Tor is an English word referring to to a high rock or a hill, deriving from the old English 'torr'. The Celtic name for Tor was Ynys Wydryn, or sometimes Yhys Gutrin, meaning ''Isle of Glass''. At this time the plain was flooded, the Isle became a peninsula at low tide." [Wiki/ Glastonbury Tor].

From a different perspective: ''I watch Bradley tensing his muscles, quickly descending the creaking stairs, half expecting to hear his steps echoed by those of the 'Vicar'. He glances behind him, once, twice, and - there! At the far end of the cellar, sitting in its own red glow, the rotund glass vessel pulses - like a living thing, he said. Like the Sacred Heart.'' [Final page of the book 'Mercurius' / P. Harpur].

"The conical hill of clay and Blue Lias rises from the Somerset levels. It was formed when surrounding softer deposits were eroded, leaving the hard cap of sandstone exposed. The slopes of the hill are terraced, the method of which they were formed remains unexplained..."

A {working?} example: "It has long been wondered why Homer describes Nestor's homeland in the Peloponnese as 'sandy Pylos' {S/W}, for the remains of the so called palace of Nestor lie a little inland on top of a rock hill..." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

''Oil of Sand''? Enlarged elsewhere.

Refresher {as one example}: "There is a mosque whose foundation was laid from the first day on piety; it is more worthy of thy standing forth therein. 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].

Side note: From a different perspective: "Primary chief bard am I to Elphin. And my original country is the region of the summer stars {i.e., the West}. Idno and Heinin called me Merddin. At length every king will call me Taliesin."

The above in relation to the question that King Maelgwyn's asks of a character {created?} of someone called ''Little Gwion'' as to ''who he was and whence he came''. Who the author R. Graves attempts to solve throughout the course of his book. [Page 81 'The White Goddess'].

A little corn cake, about the size of a silver dollar {moon link}, and a 'green' smear of guacamole....This is goddess food, Corn Mother food....Dip it in salsa and, and your 'crown chakra' blows open. You are illuminated in more ways than one.....this dark food that brings you to light....This maize food brings imagery of being chased through the labyrinth by the fabled minotaur, perhaps, but when you turn around you find it is yourself.''

N.B. Athene born from the head of Zeus. Cracked open?

''The labyrinth is a reflection of the labyrinthine canals of the inner ear that regulate balance on the ground, for to slay the minotaur, or engage with the vitality of life, is to do so in a balanced way, in a way that harmonises the VERTICAL of the quest, the journey for vision, and the HORIZONTAL of the ground {sensation}....Theseus and Ariadne {spirit and soul} together provide the alchemy of relationship necessary to release instictual vitality from its routine existence and ENTRAPMENT at the heart of the labyrinth.''

A working example {i.e.,something hinted at}: "Dominique opened the little woodstove and called to Dutheil: We'll gather the ashes, and you will go and throw them into the Seine {i.e.,'river'}." ['Journey into the Light'].

Question. Woodhenge in relation to Stonehenge? Enlarged elsewhere.

Dixon relics. Found in the shafts of the 'Queens chamber'. Any glass?

"Analogy{?}: "Basil Valentine says of this Stone: 'When ashes and sand have been timely heated in the fire, the Master {'higher' self?} makes therefrom a 'Glass', which henceforth is always able to resist the fiery heat {'crystalization' of something?}. In colour it resembles a transparent stone and is no longer recognisable as ashes. For the unknowing this a great and secret art; but not so for those who know, for its their craft, attained through knowledge and experience...After its dissolution the Strong Door of the royal Chamber can be opened {'vertical'? link}. So we see here too that the glass object, the transparent stone of the wise, is needed if spiritual knowledge is to be fruitful; and the attainment of it means first the 'purification' of the soul in the 'Fire' of self sacrifice and devotion...In the poem, 'The Spoils of Annwn' there is a passage that alludes to the 'island with the strong door where the twilight and pitchy blackness were mingled together' {''Fen'' link?}- the same strong door that Basil Valentine tells of. And further on there is the 'enclosure of glass' beyond which no one beheld the prowess of Arthur. The ''transparency'' of the soul when it is embraced in a higher {'Master'?} non-physical consciousness and so is ''out of the body'' {Ihy?}, becomes one with transparency of the world of life - the 'etheric' world - that no mortal eye can 'behold' it...All these are 'immortal' symbols...So the way of the soul is through the fire and the darkness and the strong door, into - or through the power of - the transparent enclosure, the deep mystery of purified wisdom {'Bosom'?}...AND/OR...'The Stone of the Bards will prove the harbour of life...Yet it is concealed from the unawakened..." ['The Flaming Door'].

Side note 1: {And/or}: "...once the Strong Door is opened, the 'spell' {'curse'?} of the otherworld is lifted and 'remembrance returns' in a painful flood." [Page 47 'Mabon and the Mysteries of Britain: An Exploration of the Mabinogion' / C. Mathews]. Try remember/forgetting etc.

''Perfection is not a boring, self righteous state in which you criticize everyone about you, but a widening of all your HORIZONS." [ Marian Green book. Page 42].

The ''wide'' garment of Dionysos?

"Ninurta (Sumerian𒀭𒊩𒌆𒅁DNIN.URTA, possible meaning "Lord [of] Barley"),[1] also known as  Ninĝirsu (Sumerian𒀭𒎏𒄈𒋢DNIN.ĜIR2.SU, meaning "Lord [of] Girsu"),[2] is an ancient Mesopotamian god associated with farming, healing, hunting, law, scribes, and war who was first worshipped in early Sumer. In the earliest records, he is a god of agriculture and healing, who cures humans of sicknesses and releases them from the power of demons." 'Three pronged'? Barley to enlarge.

A working example {the very first one}: "Girsu was possibly inhabited in the Ubaid period (5300-4800 BC), but significant levels of activity began in the Early Dynastic period (2900-2335 BC). At the time of Gudea, during the Second Dynasty of Lagash, Girsu became the capital of the Lagash kingdom and continued to be its religious center after political power had shifted to the city of Lagash.[3] During the Ur III period, Girsu was a major administrative center for the empire. After the fall of Ur, Girsu declined in importance, but remained inhabited until c. 200 BC. A 4th century BC bilingual Greek/Aramaic inscription was found there...

Cuneiform?

A foundation tablet and a number of inscribed building cones have been found. In the 5th season, in autumn 2019, work concentrated on the Mound of the Palace where E-ninnu, a temple to Ningirsu, had been found in earlier seasons.[20] In March 2020, archaeologists announced the discovery of a 5,000-year-old cultic area filled with more than 300 broken ceremonial ceramic cups, bowls, jars, animal sacrifices, and ritual processions dedicated to Ningirsu.[21][22] One of the remains was a duck-shaped bronze figurine with eyes made from bark which is thought to be dedicated to Nanshe.....

Side note: Recall the Whale geoglyph {Nazca Lines} with "eye of stone".

Continued: Multiple literary texts focused on Nanshe are known. Nanshe and the Birds focuses on her relation with her symbolic animal, the u5 bird. Its species is a matter of dispute, with proposed identifications including gooseswancormorantgull and pelican. In the myth Enki and Ninhursag, she appears as one of the deities created by Ninhursag to cure Enki's illness. Other compositions deal with her relation to the sea, fish or dream interpretation."

Any ducks in the tomb of Tut?

'Triangular' head gear?

"Bau, also read Baba (cuneiform: 𒀭𒁀𒌑 dBa-U2), was a Mesopotamian goddess. The reading of her name is a subject of debate among researchers, though Bau is considered the conventional spelling today.[1] While initially regarded simply as a life-giving deity, in some cases associated with the creation in mankind, over the course of the third and second millennia BCE she also acquired the role of a healing goddess. She could be described as a divine midwife. In art she could be depicted in the company of waterfowl or scorpions.

In sources from Lagash and Girsu, Bau's husband was the god Ningirsu."

"Two swimming ducks."

Girsu: "A very unusual construction, like a big 'X'. Like two convex walls. Made of 'fire bricks'...Kept maintained for centuries...Stands inside an ancient canal. The foundations for a bridge, made from thousands of mud brick with bitumen as mortar {'fourteen flag/pennant poles?}. Revolutionary when first built. An ancient water management system. By squeezing the current  through the narrow channel it picks up speed without raising the level downstream. The oldest bridge ever found in the world....Many canals found throughout this first city...Sheep and goats in this 'Garden of Eden'..."Could religion explain the birth of the FIRST cities?"

''When Believers cross the Sirat, they will come across two springs. They will have a bath from one of the springs and will drink from the other. Thus, after attaining material and spiritual purity, they will come to the gate of Paradise. Angels will say, as it is stated in Zumar Sura, "Peace be upon you. Welcome! Enter here eternally." Then they will be clothed garments of Paradise, and all of them will go into Paradise.''

Sheep decans.

Side note: ''In vitro (Latin: in glass; often not italicized in English usage[1][2][3]) studies are conducted using components of an organism that have been isolated from their usual biological surroundings, such as microorganisms, cells, or biological molecules. For example, microorganisms or cells can be studied in artificial culture media, and proteins can be examined in solutions. Colloquially called "test-tube experiments", these studies in biology, medicine, and their subdisciplines are traditionally done in test tubes, flasks, Petri dishes, etc. They now involve the full range of techniques used in molecular biology, such as the omics.

In contrast, studies conducted in living beings (microorganisms, animals, humans, or whole plants) are called in vivo.''

'Chariot' or funky wheels?

Continued: Understanding the above gives clues to such 'information' {keys?} as to the following - other than 'aliens from other planets': "Other hints of a mysteries lost technology connected to 'Yima' include a miraculous 'cup' in which he could 'see' everything that was happening anywhere in the world and a jeweled glass throne {sometimes described as a 'glass chariot' } that was capable of 'flight'..."

"We believe they were home to elite tribal families / defensive forts / statements of power. But we don't know why most were abandoned by the 4th century A.D." ['Digging for Britain' / Episode 2].

'Ways of Seeing' by J. Berger.

Question. Could that ''elite family/s'' have understood something? Define those 'keys' to answer that ''mystery''. Among others try ''tower'' and/or N/E in relation to S/W? As a means...? {i.e., the above was 'decommissioned ' in the 2nd century AD - all others - by the 4th. Any Scottish links - either permanently or temporarily to the origins of 'Glastonbury'?}.

The main point being - understanding the authenticity of this 'subject material' from the oral tradition up to the present time - gives such questions {hypothesis?} validity. Understanding the parts {keys?} - gets us closer to defining what our ancestors were attempting to understand {within?} themselves.

"A new way of seeing is a new way of feeling.'' D. Hockney.

Question. Outward manifestation of something within? Archetypal? 'Decommissioned' ONCE understood?

fenland

''The Fen is one of the main types of WETLAND. Recall Sea Henge {and/or Seahenge}.

AS IS: "Much has been made of the fact that, at all periods of European prehistory, some bodies were interred upon their sides in a crouching posture. The resemblance to a foetus in a womb has encouraged speculation that these individuals were being returned to the earth to be reborn. This may be true, but as many primitive peoples sleep with knees drawn up, it may be a final rest which is indicated instead. Support for the notion of rebirth may be drawn from the fact that a sixth of the known Palaeolithic burials {scattered from Wales to Russia} were sprinkled with red ochre {author speculates about menstrual blood etc}...Red had a significance in the Old Stone Age which we cannot now comprehend: this would explain why certain artefacts and ornaments deposited in caves were coated in the same ochre...We are left wondering why some people were interred crouching and most not, some with goods or ochre and most with neither, while the vast majority of the population does not seem to have been buried at all {i.e., exoteric/esoteric?}...The British evidence is a microcosm of the European, being drawn from just three sites {N.B. Book came out in 1990's - few more ,these days. Enlarged within} - One is the Goats Cave in the Gower Peninsula, {i.e., S/W Wales}, where a young man was put into a shallow grave with rods and bracelets of ivory and covered with red ochre; a mammoth's skull was placed nearby...it was made shortly before the last great period of glaciation. Making the oldest recorded in these islands...Once the ice retreated...few were found to be interred in the Mendip Hills. At Aveline's Hole in Burrington Combe four individuals were put into the floor, two apparently with fossils, perforated teeth for necklaces and flints." [R. Hutton].

And/or: ''In 1956 Gower was the first area in Great Britain to be designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. It contain several castles, including Oystermouth Castle and Pennard Castle {overlooking Three Cliffs Bay - which is close to Oxwich Bay}.

Side note: The Lower Swansea Valley was at the heart of the global copper trade for over 200 years.
By 1850 eleven major copperworks had been established on the banks of the River Tawe, and for a time they produced over half of the world's total output of smelted copper. Such was the importance of this industry that Swansea became known as 'Copperopolis'.

Short or long Way? Any overhangs?

Continued: S/W - sea - cave {womb?} and/or S/W - river - tor. Anything? Try ''teeth'' or ''cave'' or ''ochre'' {therefore ''red''} or ''flint'' or ''rod'' or ''ivory'' or ''elephant'' { therefore 'horn'} etc.

Side note: "The only other evidence relating to these figurines {enlarged elsewhere} is their dating, and here another striking similarity is revealed: all those from contexts which could be dated may be attributed to the centuries between about 25,000 - 23000 BC. All were therefore apparently produced in a relatively short period of the Palaeolithic, that in which the ice sheets were starting to advance southward for the last time."

'Car' / 'chariot' or Herbie? Question. His or hers?

"Outward manifestation'' in relation to: "In seeking to understand the nature of these hidden reactions we must renounce our superior intellectual attitude which considers them only errors, mistakes, or dross and attempt to understand them in their own terms. For they are so impalpable that the intellect and rational analysis cannot grasp them...When intellectual acumen fails us in this way we have to turn to unconscious products for enlightenment and see whether a study of symbols and instinctive ways of acting may not throw some light on the obscurity. For unconscious factors of the psyche are first sensed, not in concepts, but are perceived in the outer world, projected into inanimate nature. So that when man sees human qualities and characteristics as belonging to inanimate objects {Libra?} - these are not just arbitrary imaginings but are reflections of his own unconscious qualities. When he regards natural phenomena naively, personifying them as in myths and folk tales {i.e.,as one example; as described in such books as 'The Flaming Door: The Mission of the Celtic Folk Soul'. Enlarged elsewhere} - or in the poetic language of art, he is interpreting Nature in accordance with his own nature. His unconscious is projected to the outer world. In the ancient half-forgotten folk myths of a people, we find relics of archaic, primitive ways of thinking which have been largely displaced in the Western world and in modern times by the more developed cultures superimposed upon them. But they are not for that reason extinct nor are they without meaning, as is shown by the fact that they reappear, today, from the unconscious in dreams and phantasies. Through a study of them something may be learned of those unrecognised laws which rule in the unconscious {Wolfgang Pauli?} - where our modern rational and scientific ways of thought are powerless to penetrate." ['Women's Mysteries'].

As an example {i.e.,apply the above to define the following}: "Then Being, BEHOLDING said: Let me become great; let me give birth. Then it put forth Radiance. Then Radiance beholding said: Let me become great; let me give birth. Then it put forth the Waters...Then the Waters, beholding said: Let US become great; let US become great.

Or the Egyptian 'Anubis' in relation to Horus. Explained elsewhere, in relation to 'higher' / 'lower'.

The word 'giant' also used in relation to Gog and Magog.

REFRESHER: "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' if something in relation to 'sleep'. Try ''nine'' and/or ''iron'' IN RELATION to gold/silver.

Side note: "The same myth also provides insight into the two paths or ways of 'salvation'. The Way of Osiris and the Way of Horus. The former is the way of 'reincarnation', of progressive dissolutions linked only by the generative principle; the latter is the direct path; that of the warrior of the spirit, out to subdue the enemy within himself by his own efforts." [Page 129 'Serpent in the Sky'].

And/or: "This knowledge is not set down explicitly in books, but is embodied in the building itself...The proportions of the Temple are those of Adamic Man, man before the 'fall' - and of 'perfected' man, man who has regained his cosmic consciousness through his own efforts..." [Page 159 same book].

 

''If the ''opening of the heart'' bestowed by this new mentality is not understood, the effect involved will be questioned: 'Why take such pains to decipher a teaching so far removed from us?' We would reply: 'It helps arrest our dangerous fall, and to give us a means to ascend towards our superhuman aim.' We must understand that everything said in this way goes well beyond our usual understanding and concerns hidden vital laws." [Page 59 'The Egyptian Miracle' / R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz].

The term "Bridge of the Sirat" hasn’t been used in the Quran and the word "Sirat" which has been only means “way”, the question is why is the term "Bridge of the path" used by people so much and how are the two terms of "Sirat" and the "Bridge of the Sirat" related to each other?

Stirling Bridge to see it from a different perspective.

The Arch of Constantine. In the middle of the Seven Hills of Rome.

Side note: The Battle of the Milvian Bridge took place between the Roman Emperors Constantine I and Maxentius on 28 October 312 AD. It takes its name from the Milvian Bridge, an important route over the Tiber. Constantine won the battle and started on the path that led him to end the Tetrarchy and become the sole ruler of the Roman Empire. Maxentius drowned in the Tiber during the battle; his body was later taken from the river and decapitated, and his head was paraded through the streets of Rome on the day following the battle before being taken to Africa.[2]

According to Christian chroniclers Eusebius of Caesarea and Lactantius, the battle marked the beginning of Constantine's conversion to Christianity. Eusebius of Caesarea recounts that Constantine and his soldiers had a vision sent by the Christian God. This was interpreted as a promise of victory if the sign of the Chi Rho, the first two letters of Christ's name in Greek, was painted on the soldiers' shields.

Inside, it’s all wavy lines, shimmering coppery surfaces and burnished details. There’s an oversized artwork made of driftwood, burnt orange club chairs, silvered columns and a knock-out shimmering gold wall. It’s a tactile, seductive space and that’s before you’ve even reached your bedroom.

AND/OR: The middle eight, also known as the bridge, is a section of a song with a different melody and lyrics that creates a contrast to the verse and chorus. It is usually placed after the second chorus in a song and helps the song develop itself in a natural way. An example of a middle eight is the part that starts with "And all the roads we have to walk are winding..." in Wonderwall by Oasis....The Beatles: Their song “A Day in the Life” has an iconic middle 8 starting at 2:17. It adds an interesting section and symbolizes chaos before waking up.

And: "Wander to the top of Long Acre, cross Drury Lane, and you’ll find yourself in a quieter, more sedate side of Covent Garden. Great Queen Street is not exactly off the beaten track, but it seems as though the hubbub, which makes this central London area so appealing to most, suddenly seems far away. The creamy façade and gold lettering of this enclave’s newest hotel gives an insight to what’s to come. Middle Eight – named after the middle part of the song that gives a touch of variety to a tune – has a fittingly intriguing name well-suited to its alluring design aesthetic. It may look elegant and discreet, but this is a hotel with soul...The philosophy of any luxury hotel should be to lure you in and Middle Eight does that slowly and confidently, or in musical terms, adagio, adagio. Just off the double-height lobby, the bar has the prettiest ceiling covered with copper, cut-out sycamore leaves – a little nod to the Sycamore Vino Cucina restaurant found beyond."

Coincidence?

Side note:  "You can follow two paths in the mountains, Her-Bak,'' said the sage. ''The first winds round it with many a twist, exploring; the slope is gentle, the ascent easy, varied, amusing. This path avoids points of danger. It never attacks the Peak {of silence?} and halts at shelters known to be safe. The other is steep {cliff?}, takes each phase of the climb without detour, skirts precipices {'overhangs'?} and reaches a summit that is only accessible to a man who can face naked sunlight and danger. Which path will you choose Her-Bak?'' [Page 89 'Her-Bak: Egyptian Initiate' / Isha Schwaller de Lubicz].

Side note: The middle 8 can even feature a completely different atmosphere in terms of the arrangement, forming an interesting contrast with the rest of the song. Quite often, it involves a key change. Whatever you choose to put in this section, there is only one important factor to keep in mind: a middle 8 exists to bring variety to a song. It is a sort of break before we go back to the main part of the tune, the chorus. It serves the need to make the song more dynamic, as it adds movement and tension, finalized to resolve on the hook....

The bridge usually connects a verse to the chorus, while the middle 8 doesn’t serve as a connection but, rather, as a turning point. For example, Lenny Kravitz’s song I’ll Be Waiting features both a bridge between every verse and chorus and a middle 8 before the last chorus...One of the best middle 8s of all time is probably represented by the Beatles’ song A Day in the Life. The middle 8 starts at 2:17 after an orchestral break that intensively builds up towards another calmer section, somewhat symbolizing the chaos of a dream minutes before waking up.

Continued: ''Although the term the "Bridge of Sirat" hasn’t been used in the Quran, it has been mentioned in hadiths and traditions. For example Imam Sadiq (as) has mentioned this term while explaining the word "mirsad" in verse 14 of Surah Fajr, saying that it is a bridge that extends across Hell.

For further explanation we will note some points regarding the word "Sirat". "Sirat" literally means way and path and what is meant by the term "Al-Siratul Mustaqim" that is mentioned in some Quranic verses is the right and straight path of guidance in this world that if one follows, will also remain on in the hereafter, and that if he strays from in this world, will stray from in the hereafter likewise.

Therefore if the Sirat, which is one of the stops on the day of resurrection, is referred to by terms like the "Bridge of Sirat", the "Bridge of Hell", etc., it is to simplify the meaning for people so that they can comprehend easily.

First we need to know that the word Sirat means path, and when used with the word mustaqim as an adjective it means the straight way and right path.

This term (Al-Siratul Mustaqim) has been used in the Quran as follows:

1- "Guide us to the Straight Path".[1]

2- "Surely Allah is my Lord and your Lord, therefore serve Him, this is the right path".[2]

3- "Those who seek the protection of God will certainly be guided to the right path".[3]

4- "And [O, Messenger!] this is the Straight Path of your Creator and Nurturer; indeed We have made clear the Words of Revelation for those who accept Admonition".[4]

''Crossing the Sirat Bridge depends on everybody's light. Some will cross it in the twinkling of an eye; some, like lightning; some, like a falling star; some, like a running horse. He who has very little light will creep facedown {'prostrate'?}. His hands and feet will slip, and he will cling to it again. At long last, he will break free from it by creeping and creeping.'' [Tabarani / Wiki].

From a different perspective: ''In some cases, the Sajjada Nashin is the descendant of a Sufi or Pir or a descendant of one of their disciples. Sajjada means 'prayer mat' (from the Arabic sajdah or 'prostration') while nashin is the word used for the person seated thereon.[3] A Sajjada particularly tends to the shrine which is made over the Sufi's tomb or grave, known as a Dargah or Mazar. A trustee is a key person who holds and leads the traditional Sufi rituals in the Dargah's daily activities and particularly during death anniversaries called Urs. As a hereditary position the role of Sajjada nashin passes onto a child following the death of the holder.

Continued: A working example: ''Rosslyn Chapel was the vision of an ambitious and far-sighted nobleman called William St Clair.   William was the third and last St Clair Prince of Orkney, and in 1436, at the age of twentytwo, he accompanied James I’s 12-year-old daughter, Margaret, to Tours, where she was married to the Louis, the son of Charles VII of France.

Rosslyn Chapel (C) 123While he was there, William decided to make the most of it, and he spent four years exploring the Continent.  He made a particular study of the French cathedrals and their beautiful Gothic architecture.  Ten years later, in the low wooded hills of Midlothian, he founded the Collegiate Chapel of St Matthew, or Rosslyn Chapel as it is better known.

Prince William, his age creeping on him, came to consider how he had spent his times past, and how he was to spend his remaining days… it came into his mind to build a house for God’s service, of most curious work…”

Father Richard Augustine Hay, Canon of St Genevieve and Prior of St Piermont, writing in 1700, from ‘A Genealogie of the Sainteclaires of Rosslyn’, 1835

By my reckoning, William would only have been 'thirtytwo' when he founded the chapel, so I’m not sure how he would have felt about the idea that age was creeping up on him.  However, he must have been one for looking ahead, and he was certainly a man who dreamed big.

Clockwise/Anticlockwise?

It should be said here that William’s chapel was not the first on this site, but traces of the former building are hard to find, and its very existence seems to have been largely obscured by the glorious presence of its successor.   Some crumbling buttresses survive in the nearby graveyard;  and about half a mile down the hill, an even earlier place of worship was incorporated into the St Clair stronghold of Rosslyn Castle...“The first chapel nestled inside Rosslyn Castle within a curious curved stone wall known as the ’rounds’, resembling a honeycomb....The honeycomb design is an interesting element, which I’ll explain later on.'' ['The Hazel Tree: Rosslyn Chapel: catching the light' / Internet].

buttress is an architectural structure built against or projecting from a wall which serves to support or reinforce the wall.[1] Buttresses are fairly common on more ancient buildings, as a means of providing support to act against the lateral (sideways) forces arising out of inadequately braced roof structures.

A corner of the Temple Mount.

The term counterfort can be synonymous with buttress[2] and is often used when referring to dams, retaining walls and other structures holding back earth.

Early examples of buttresses are found on the Eanna Temple (ancient Uruk), dating to as early as the 4th millennium BC.[citation needed]

In addition to flying and ordinary buttresses, brick and masonry buttresses that support wall corners can be classified according to their ground plan. A clasping or clamped buttress has an L-shaped ground plan surrounding the corner, an angled buttress has two buttresses meeting at the corner, a setback buttress is similar to an angled buttress but the buttresses are set back from the corner, and a diagonal (or 'French') buttress is at 135° to the walls (45° off of where a regular buttress would be).

Continued: "The fifth century A.D. saw the first seeds sown in Britain of the Anglo Saxon race, when Britain was invaded by a 'mare and a horse'. The brothers Hengist and Horsa. This was the time when the Druid Mysteries were in decay....And we see Ceridwen - not as a very earthly horse! - but armoured with the sharp attacking bird's beak {'hooked' and/or Oxyrhynchus fish? Griffin?}, and having her body like an 'ark' or womb of the concealed spirit. The new age is already heralded, but unformed and chaotic, like the drawing. There are many references in Welsh mythology to Arianrod, Iris, the Goddess of the Silver Wheel. She is generally supposed to be the goddess of the rainbow, but not the rainbow we are accustomed to see {i.e., what the author defines as ''clothed in a rainbow coloured aura} - this was called Iris - the Great Aura,'' i.e., in relation to ''dawn of serenity for a neophyte'', i.e.,''an imaginative vision'' {eureka moment link?}. ['The Flaming Door']. Try ''girdle'' to see it in its broader context.

From a different pespective: ''In the bright, translucent colours you see the family of the neteru rising up and crossing the rainbow as though it were a giant bridge...''

And/or: ''Aura - comes from the Latin for 'breath'....'' ['The Chase'].

"According to early sources,[which?] Hengist and Horsa arrived in Britain at Ebbsfleet on the Isle of Thanet. For a time, they served as mercenaries for VortigernKing of the Britons, but later they turned against him (British accounts have them betraying him in the Treachery of the Long Knives). Horsa was killed fighting the Britons, but Hengist successfully conquered Kent, becoming the forefather of its kings.

A figure named Hengest, possibly identifiable with the leader of British legend, appears in the Finnesburg Fragment and in BeowulfJ. R. R. Tolkien has theorized that this indicates Hengest/Hengist is the same person and originates as a historical person.[4]

Hengist was historically[clarification needed] said to have been buried at Hengistbury Head in Dorset."

"Hengistbury Head (/ˈhɛŋɡɪstbəri/), formerly also called Christchurch Head, is a headland jutting into the English Channel between Bournemouth and Mudeford in the English county of Dorset. It is a site of international importance in terms of its archaeology and is scheduled as an Ancient Monument.[1] Declared a Local Nature Reserve in 1990, the head and its surroundings form part of the Christchurch Harbour Site of Special Scientific Interest.[2] It is also a Special Area of ConservationSpecial Protection Area, an Environmentally Sensitive Area and a Site of Nature Conservation Interest.[3] The name "Hengistbury Head" refers to the whole of the headland area; the elevated portion is called Warren Hill."

"Warren Hill is the elevated part of Hengistbury Head in Dorset, England, overlooking Christchurch to the North and dominating Poole Bay to the West. With finds stretching back over 10000 years.....A warren is a network of interconnected burrows, dug by rabbitsDomestic warrens are artificial, enclosed establishments of animal husbandry dedicated to the raising of rabbits for meat and fur. The term evolved from the medieval Anglo-Norman concept of free warren, which had been, essentially, the equivalent of a hunting license for a given woodland....The cunicularia of the monasteries may have more closely resembled hutches or pens, than the open enclosures with specialized structures which the domestic warren eventually became. Such an enclosure or close was called a cony-garth, or sometimes conegarconeygree or "bury" (from "burrow")....To keep the rabbits from escaping, domestic warrens were usually provided with a fairly substantive moat, or ditch filled with water. Rabbits generally do not swim and avoid water. A pale, or fence, was provided to exclude predators."

And/or: "This dream begins in a wild, swampy landscape, suggestive of the unknown, watery world of the unconscious. In this landscape the dreamer comes to a fairground, to which he has a ticket...The fairground with all its strange and fantastical associations describes an inner space where the figures of the imaginal can be encountered. It echoes the 'Magic Theatre' of Herman Hesse's Steppenwolf, a 'theatre' in which, behind different doors, is enacted various aspects of the unconscious of the protagonist, {H}arry Haller. And just as in the 'Magic Theatre' entrance is 'Not for Everyone', so our dreamer must have a ticket to go in. The world of the unconscious cannot be entered without paying the price, for the experience of this 'fairground' means leaving the rational world and the values of the persona. In Steppen-'wolf' the entrance is 'For Madmen Only', and the 'Price of Admittance Your Mind'. For those on the path they pay with their longing for Truth, a longing which will take them beyond the conscious mind and the surface world of appearances, into the very depths of themselves. In the fairground the dreamer enters a building , suggesting his own personal psyche, and what he wants is to find 'the deepest, darkest spot, from whence all trouble arose'....." [Page 31/2 'The Lover and the Serpent'].

"The fire that is not put out is a 'holy' fire....This fire is the fire of longing, the unquenchable flame in the heart that purifies the seeker, and relentlessly drives him along the Way. It is the longing that always burns and burns, taking the Wayfarer Home into the arms of the Beloved."

Continued: "When does Gold Ore become pure 'Gold'? When it is put through a process of fire. So the human being during the training becomes as pure as Gold through suffering. It is the burning away of the dross....For the woman, the animus is an important figure whose spiritual aspect can help her on the quest, allowing her to live from the sacred center of her being....Within the psyche of the man the integration of the anima is of similar importance, though the anima has a different psychological dynamic to the animus. While the animus adds the strength and clarity of consciousness to the 'diffuse awareness' of the woman, the anima reconnects masculine consciousness to the inner world of the soul. For, unlike the woman who has never left the arms of the great mother, into his journey into manhood the boy becomes separated from the Source; and with the help of the anima he can return to the depths of his own being without being lost in the maze of the unconscious. The man's inner woman, the dark lady of the night, exerts her fascination in many guises, from the cover girl to the enigmatic Mona Lisa....The quality of the anima is poignantly imaged in the following simple dream: A woman in a slinky blue dress is singing 'Walking Back To Happiness' in a bluesy, soulful way."

The word Atitlan is a Mayan word that translates as "the place where the rainbow gets its colours". The main tourist center is Panajachel, an 800 year old pueblo of about 14000, mostly Cakchiquel Mayas and some foreigners from every corner of the globe, living inside that rainbow.

In the highlands of Guatemala, especially around Lake Atitlan, the Mayan culture still thrives. The spirit it invokes is the hidden gem of Guatemala, and makes this one of the most exotic destinations in the world.

The Maya are known for being friendly, funny, welcoming of strangers, and also shy. Living among them is an enchanting experience. There are about a dozen other villages scattered around the lake. Some are Cakchiquel, some Tz'utujil and both speak different languages. The indigenous lake people were accustomed to dealing with other cultures they couldn't communicate with, long before tourists ever showed up. [www.atitlan].

A {working?} example: in the sense of a representation {one example ONLY} - of the benefits of inspiration and aspiration: "The two side Paths here are also more aspirational than their equivalents that led out of Malkuth. They are represented by the 'Sun' and the 'Star'. The Sun that beams down from Hod is the bright light of self evident spiritual truth, a light by which all dark places are enlightened. The Star is the realization and feeling of 'divine' beauty that comes from Netzach. It is closely associated with Venus, where the pattern of the Earthly paradise {'seven / eight' link?} - is said to be held. These aspirations for Truth and Beauty therefore flank the path of Aspiration that leads to higher consciousness. But aspiration is not enough on its own. Aspiration alone can be but wish fulfilment fantasy unless we have the will and ability to bring it to realization and fulfilment. This is implied by the transverse path across our way; its symbol - the Lightening - struck Tower....

'Stacked'?

Aspiration alone might be regarded as our being enclosed in an ivory tower, and many are there {within this subject} who remain in this condition. High on great thoughts but low on practical achievement. If we are to progress to be responsible servers of the 'higher' powers in the Temple of Tiphareth - 'the sphere of the god made Manifest, in the sphere of the mind' - then we have to be prepared for the lightening flash of illumination, or the lightening flash of destruction of false values. This may come to us as a shock, but it also a form of enlightenment..." ['Magical Images and the Magical Imagination' / G. Knight].

Question. Abu Ruash - Egypt's most northern pyramid - A collapsed one. Built on a hill.

Analogy: {ie., as seen from a different perspective. A different time and place}: "My impressions of Dinas Emrys were surprising, as I had not expected much.

"The quest for the Grail begins with the question of what exactly one is looking for. Whatever it may be, it is something that has an immediate, widespread effect, whenever it is rediscovered. The persons mind is stunned into a new way of 'thinking,' and the change is reflected [eventually] into a new idealistic form of society. Yet besides creating a sensation, it has further, long lasting quality. It serves as a constant fount of inspiration and wisdom, sanctifying the lives of those who posses it. When it is lost, harmony and good order vanish with it." [Introduction to the book, 'The Twelve - Tribe Nations' by J. Michell and C. Rhone]. Try ''quality'' and/or ''grace'', i.e.,what does it imply? Then ''oracle''.

REfresher: "The Agnisuryans respond to the sound. The waters ebb and flow. Let the 'magician' guard himself from drowning, at the point where land and water meet.

Bush Barrow 'lozenge' - enlarged elsewhere.

"During the period i was preparing this book, Robert Lomas, one of the authors mentioned above, wrote a further work with the title 'Turning the Hiram Key'. In their previous works, Robert Lomas and Christopher Knight had drawn attention to the chapel at Rosslyn, just outside of Edinburgh, Scotland - a chapel that contains considerable Masonic symbolism carved into the stone of the structure. Rosslyn was built in the 15th century by William St. Clair, the last Norse Earl of Orkney, whose family had, for some centuries, provided the Grand Masters of Freemasonry in Scotland. Robert Lomas has argued that the origins of modern Freemasonry can be traced to the building of the chapel. In a chapter about symbolism, Lomas visits the subject of the 'lozenge' shape {'form'?} as it may have been associated with the cult of the 'Goddess'. He also draws attention to the method of using the lozenge shape as a means of determining the latitude of one's position. He goes on to state: 'At the latitude where the Temple of Rosslyn was built, the solstice angles produce a perfect square, {'cube' ?} and that is where modern Freemasonry began'. This is an interesting observation because in a masonic ceremony of initiation, the candidate is admitted - on a square." [From the book by K. Gest. All emphasis, this readers].

The hill rises above the city to a height of 250.5 m (822 ft), provides excellent panoramic views of the city and beyond, is relatively easy to climb, and is popular for hillwalking. Though it can be climbed from almost any direction, the easiest and simplest ascent is from the east, where a grassy slope rises above Dunsapie Loch.''

The importance of Het-Her throughout ancient times was not confined to the borders of ancient Egypt.

''In Greek sanctuaries, the collective performances of rituals took place around an outdoor altar. As temples housed the images of deities, the temple door allowed the passage from one realm to another, from the profane space to the sacred. The door to the naos with the cult statue meant metaphorically the access to the presence of the god. A krater dating to the 4th century BCE from Taranto depicts the statue of Apollo in a temple, seen through the open doors.''

Bluestar?

Noble women?

''Temples were, therefore, not always accessible for all worshippers. In some cases, only cultic officials were permitted entry. Some temples were open every day, and some only on certain days of the year.8 Locking and unlocking the temple door was the responsibility of either one or several cultic officials with the key signifying restricted access and custodianship. The key itself was entrusted to officials in their role as custodians of the temples. Valuable votives and money deposited in temples increased the responsibility of key-holders. For this reason, the temple key could only be entrusted to somebody of high social and cultic status. Most of the inscriptions about key-holders emphasize the noble background of key-holders. Therefore, we do not have evidence that the key-holders of most Greek sanctuaries were of noble background.''

''The key-holders of temples have a long tradition going back to the Mycenaean period. The Linear B tablets from Pylos dating to the second half of the 2nd millennium BCE mention cultic officials who had the title ka-ra-wi-po-ro (key-bearer). Another question is whether there is a continuity of perpetuating the conception of key-holders of Greek temples....So far, there are only very few studies on key-holders, which were mainly focused on the analysis of the iconographic material. Mantis made the first accurate analysis of the iconographic material on key-holders.9 One part of the iconographic material was also analysed by Dillon, Connelly, Kaltsas, and Shapiro.10 A significant number of vases and grave stelai dating to the Classical and Hellenistic periods depict temple keys or women holding a temple key. Most of the vases show mythical figures as key-holders, whereas the grave stelai honour women who served presumably as priestesses. I will only give an overview of the iconographic material on key-holders.''

Through a hole in the door, a person on the outside could slide the bolt back to open position using a very angular tool (key) of bronze or iron. To lock it again, a thin rope or leather strap pulled the bolt into the staples in the door frame. Ancient Greek door locks were used from the seventh century BC in Greece and were named after finds in Laconia in the southern part of Peloponnesus in Greece.''

''Several Linear B tablets from Pylos and 110 inscriptions dating to the Hellenistic, Roman, and Imperial periods provide evidence for cultic officials as key-holders. Numerous grave stelai and vase paintings depict mortal and mythical figures holding the so-called temple key that served as an iconographic insignia of female priests. Studies in the past were primarily focused on the iconographic material. The present paper covers a whole range of epigraphic sources, which give insight into the procedure for appointment to cultic offices of key-holders, their tasks, and social background.''

Side note: ''Berenice Troglodytica, also called Berenike (Greek: Βερενίκη) or Baranis, is an ancient seaport of Egypt on the western shore of the Red Sea. It is situated about 825 km south of Suez, 260 km east of Aswan in Upper Egypt and 140 km south of Marsa Alam.[2] It was founded in 275 BCE by Ptolemy II Philadelphus (285–246 BCE), who named it after his mother, Berenice I of Egypt.[3]

In flight?

A high mountain range runs along the African coast and separates the Nile Valley from the Red Sea; Berenice was sited upon a narrow rim of shore between the mountains and the Red Sea, at the head of the Sinus Immundus,[4] a south-facing bay sheltered on the north by a high peninsula then called Lepte Extrema, and to the south by a chain of small islands scattered across the mouth of the bay. One of them was called the Island of Ophiodes (Ὀφιώδης νήσος[4][5]) and was one of a few sources of gemstones local to Berenice. The harbour is marginal, but was improved by engineering.''

''The name Troglodytica refers to the native people of the region, the "Troglodytai" or "cave dwellers". Although the name is attested by several ancient writers, the more ancient Ptolemaic inscriptions read Trogodytai, which Huntingford (1980)[6] speculated could be derived from the same root as Tuareg. It is possible that later copyists confused this name with the more common term Troglodytai.''

Common factors?

Saint Veronica, also known as Berenike,[3] was a widow from Jerusalem who lived in the 1st century AD, according to extra-biblical Christian sacred tradition.[4] A celebrated saint in many pious Christian countries, the 17th-century Acta Sanctorum published by the Bollandists listed her feast under July 12,[5] but the German Jesuit scholar Joseph Braun cited her commemoration in Festi Marianni on 13 January....According to Church tradition, Veronica was moved with sympathy seeing Jesus carrying the cross to Calvary and gave him her veil so that he could wipe his forehead. Jesus accepted the offer, and when he returned the veil the image of his face was miraculously captured on it. The resulting relic became known as the Veil of Veronica.[6][7][8]

The story of Veronica is celebrated in the sixth Station of the Cross in AnglicanCatholic, and Western Orthodox churches.[4][9][10]

Eusebius in his Historia Ecclesiastica (vii 18) tells how at Caesarea Philippi lived the woman whom Christ healed of an issue of blood (Matthew 9:20–22). Legend was not long in providing the woman of the Gospel with a name. In the West she was identified with Martha of Bethany; in the East she was called Berenike, or Beronike, the name appearing in as early a work as the "Acta Pilati", the most ancient form of which goes back to the fourth century. The fanciful derivation of the name Veronica from the words Vera Icon (eikon) "true image" dates back to the "Otia Imperialia" (iii 25) of Gervase of Tilbury (fl. 1211), who says: "Est ergo Veronica pictura Domini vera" (translated: "The Veronica is, therefore, a true picture of the Lord.")

From a different perspective: "Heart mine in the house of hearts, heart mine be with me in the house of hearts. My heart {'soul'?} is peaceful for me. I do not eat the cakes of Asar {'fire' link? i.e., therefore 'spirit'} in the eastern lake, the boat sailing downstream or upstream. I do not go into the boat with you. It is I with my mouth and my words with my two legs for walking, and with my two arms for pulling down the enemies. Opened for me are the doors of heaven. Geb, the chief of the gods and goddesses, has unbolted his jaws for me. My eyes which were blinded, are opened and my legs stretch out freely. They are firmed up {therefore 'strong legs'?} by the god Anpu - extending as goddess Sekhmet'' {Spirit/soul coming together; as a means}? Hence: "I am in heaven doing my  will in the house of the Ka of Ptah. I know my heart {i.e., I know who I am}. I am powerful - in my legs and arms and in actions {static/dynamic? and/or 'shoulders'?}, which are desired by my Ka. My soul and body are not restricted at the portals of Amentet, in my going in, in peace, and coming out in peace....The 'iab' or heart is the mind of the person, and an aspect of the ego personality...to know the heart is to know the innermost Self. Like the fortytwo injunctions of Maat..."

Once again there is a negative reference to the east, the eating of 'cakes' - on the eastern side of the lake of flowers - symbolic of desires and thoughts of worldly life; and reincarnation because they have not been able to remember the Self....the heart is a metaphor for the mind, when the mind is overpowered by negative or unrighteousness i.e., lying, cheating, neg. behaviour, hypocrisy etc. - it is not able to envisage the 'higher' reality of the spirit....therefore enslaving the 'soul'....This reference relates to the understanding of life as related by the journey of Ra {'spirit'}. Every day 'Ra' in the form of the sun disc is metaphorically consumed by Nut {'soul'} and she gives birth to him every morning. THEREFORE the east represents rebirth, the new life or the process of reincarnation. Reincarnation implies having to once again being born into the world of time and space, to suffer the limitations of youth etc.....it is to be understood as a separation from 'divine' consciousness...."

Only the greatest creations of mythology proper could hope to make clear to modern man that here he is face to face with a 'phenomenon' which in ''profundity, permanence, and universality is comparable with nature herself''. If we want to promote a real knowledge of mythology, we must not appeal at the outset to theoretical considerations and judgements {not even to Schelling's, from whom the quotation in praise of mythology comes}. Neither should we talk over much of ''sources'' {instead} - the water must be fetched and drunk fresh from the spring if it is to flow through us and quicken {'distillation'?} our hidden mythological talents."  ['Science of Mythology' / C.G Jung and C.Kerenyi].

REFRESHER: ''Hatshepsut had her tomb dug in the Valley of the Kings (KV 20) by her vizier and High Priest of Amun, Hapuseneb. She had previously had a tomb cut for herself as queen regent under Tuthmosis II, its entrance 220 ft (72 m) up a 350-ft (91-m) cliff face in a remote valley west of the Valley of the Kings. This was found by local people in 1916 and investigated by Howard Carter in rather dangerous circumstances. The tomb had never been used and still held the sandstone sarcophagus inscribed for the queen. Carter wrote: 'as a king, it was clearly necessary for her to have her tomb in The Valley like all other kings - as a matter of fact I found it there myself in 1903 - and the present tomb was abandoned. She would have been better advised to hold to her original plan. In this secret spot her mummy would have had a reasonable chance of avoiding disturbance: in The Valley it had none. A king she would be, and a king's fate she shared.'

White stone /Red stone?

''Hatshepsut's second tomb was located at the foot of the cliffs in the eastern corner of the Valley of the Kings. The original intention seems to have been for a passage to be driven through the rock to locate the burial chamber under the sanctuary of the queen's temple on the other side of the cliffs. In the event, bad rock was struck and the tomb's plan takes a great U-turn back on itself to a burial chamber that contained two yellow quartzite sarcophagi, one inscribed for Tuthmosis I and the other for Hatshepsut as king (p. 101). The queen's mummy has never been identified, although it has been suggested that a female mummy rediscovered in 1991 in KV 21 (the tomb of Hatshepsut's nurse) might have been her body.''

In it is an immense amount of information which should set the readers subconscious mind questing to and fro on a scent which grows warmer and warmer until Chapter 15 is reached.

It is true this work deals almost entirely with the Moon Mysteries, but, a mans immediate inner self - his anima - is feminine...whereas in this state of cosmic matrimony...for a woman that would be her animus; not anima; if Jung is correct."

From a different perspective {i.e., something hinted at}: "The origins of Merlin may be traced to the prehistoric past where the primal prophet and a youthful god of poetry and inspiration {similar in many ways to the 'young' Apollo} were originally identical. Humans mediated the poetic prophetic power; such individuals were both the inspirers and the conscious bearers of a community, a clan, a race and its land. Curiously, to the modern mind, we find that women mediated the god-power of prophecy, in the ancient world - while men mediated the goddess-power." ['The Way of Merlin' / R. J. Stewart].

The local main deity was Thoth, though the inscriptions on the White Chapel of Senusret I links this nome with the cult of Bes and Unut....The Hare nome was already recognized during the 4th Dynasty of the Old Kingdom as shown by the triad statue of pharaohMenkaure, Hathor, and an anthropomorphized-deified depiction of the nome.[1] It is known that during the 6th Dynasty its nomarchs were buried in the necropolis of El-Sheikh Sa'id....The nome kept its importance during the First Intermediate Period and the subsequent Middle Kingdom; its governors were also responsible of the alabaster quarrying at Hatnub in the Eastern Desert, they owned exclusive offices such as "director of the double throne" and great one of the five", and also were high priests of Thoth.''

Continued: "So the elders of Guatemala handed the lowland Maya ''fifteen books''. The lowland Maya were told to study and learn this knowledge and that they would be given more books in the future. In this way, the return of the Mayan calendar, knowledge, and prophesy was initiated. The outer world at this time knew nothing of this exchange, nor did they care.

Something hinted at: "Our adept means hear to speak of the first sulphur, which is the gold of the sages, the green, unripe fruit of the tree of knowledge. While the Latin phrase betrays some disappointment relative to a normal result, which many would like very much to obtain, it is because by means of this 'sulphur' the transmutation can no longer be hoped for. Indeed the philosophical gold, is not the 'stone', and Philalethes carefully warns the student that it is only its first matter. And since this sulphur principle, according to the same author, requires an uninterrupted work of approximately one hundred and fifty days, it is logical to think that such a result could not satisfy the artist who anticipated reaching the 'elixir' in one bound, as it can happen in the short way." [Page 340 'The Dwellings of the Philosopher' / Fulcanelli].

From a different perspective: A Spanish team excavating at the Graeco-Roman port of Berenike in the Eastern Desert, find ''an unusual shrine containing 15 headless falcons. The falcons were buried alongside eggs - a practise not known anywhere else in Egypt. The temple shrine also contained inscriptions describing previously unknown rituals, and a stela warning: 'It is improper to boil a head in here,' forbidding people to carry out impure activities {'spotless'} within the shrine area. The discovery dates to the Late Roman Period - when the city was occupied by a nomadic people known as the Blemmyes, who adopted the small traditional Egyptian temple to fit their own religious beliefs.'' [Page 9 'Ancient Egypt Magazine' / January/February 2023].

Various etymologies had been proposed for the origins of the name "Blemmyes", and the question is considered unsettled.

It is this shape which is the subject of the work. When brought to fulfilment, it glows and scintillates most brilliantly like some more than precious gem. ['The Philosophers Stone'].

Side note: ''Pliny is hardly a trustworthy source when it comes to descriptions of remote tribes. Let's remember, he told us that the Blemmyis, who lived in the Sahara, had eyes and mouths in their chests. And there were dog headed people living in North Africa.'' [Page 190 'The Celts' / A.

Continued: In antiquity, the actual tribe known as the Blemmyes were said to be named eponymously after King Blemys (Βλέμυς), according to Nonnus's 5th century epic Dionysiaca, but no lore about headlessness is attached to the people in this work.[2][3] Samuel Bochart of the 17th century derived the word Blemmyes from the Hebrew bly (בלי) "without" and moach (מוח) "brain", implying that the Blemmyes were people without brains (although not necessarily without heads).[4][5] A Greek derivation from blemma (Greek: βλέμμα) "look, glance" and muō (Greek: μύω) "close the eyes" has also been suggested.[6] Wolfgang Helck claimed a Coptic word "blind" for its etymology....The first indirect reference to the Blemmyes occurs in Herodotus, Histories, where he calls them the akephaloi (Greek: ἀκέφαλοι "without a head").[12] The headless akephaloi, the dog-headed cynocephali, "and the wild men and women, besides many other creatures not fabulous" dwelled in the eastern edge of ancient Libya, according to Herodotus's Libyan sources. Leo Reinisch [de] in 1895 proposed that it derived from bálami "desert people" in the Bedauye tongue (Beja language). Although this theory had long been neglected,[8] this etymology has come into acceptance, alongside the identification of the Beja people as true descendants of the Blemmyes of yore.''

The text of the blessing is found in Numbers 6:23–27.

''Raising''? 'Ka'?

According to the Torah,[4] Aaron blessed the people,[5] and YHWH[6] promises that "They (the Priests) will place my name on the Children of Israel (the Priests will bless the people), and I will bless them". The Chazal stressed that although the priests are the ones carrying out the blessing, it is not them or the ceremonial practice of raising their hands that results in the blessing, but rather it is God's desire that the blessing should be symbolised by the Kohanim's hands.

Even after the destruction of the Second Temple, the practice has been continued in Jewish synagogues, and today in most Jewish communities, Kohanim bless the worshippers in the synagogue during shacharit prayer services.[citation needed]

As he was going to bed on the evening before he had this dream, he thought to himself that it was hard to stand alone in life, lacking the support of a church. He found himself envying people who are protected by the maternal embrace of an organization. {He had been born a Protestant but no longer had any religious affiliation}. This was his dream :- I am in the aisle of an old church filled with people. Together with my mother and my wife. I sit at the end of the aisle in what seem to be extra seats. I am to celebrate the Mass as a priest, and i have a big Mass book in my hands, or, rather, a prayer book or an anthology of poems. This book is not familiar to me, and i cannot find the right text. I am very excited because i have to begin soon, and to add to my troubles, my mother and wife disturb me by chattering about unimportant trifles. Now the organ stops, and everybody is waiting for me, so i get up in a determined way and ask one of the nuns who is kneeling behind me to hand me her Mass book and point out the right place - which she does in an obliging manner. Now, like a sort of sexton, this same nun precedes me to the altar, which is somewhere behind me and to the left,{in profile?} as if we are approaching it from a side aisle.

'Snake/Dragon head' on land. 'tail' in the sea.

The Mass book is like a sheet of pictures, a sort of board, three feet long and a foot wide, and on it is the text with ancient pictures in columns,{cuneiform link?} one beside the other. First the nun has to read a part of the liturgy before i begin, and i still have not found the right place in the text. She has told me that it is number 15, but the numbers are not clear, and i cannot find it. With determination however, i turn toward the congregation,{'face on' instead of 'in profile'?} and now i have found number 15 {the next to the last on the board. Therefore 16 in total}, although i do not yet know if i will be able to decipher it. I want to try all the same - i wake up. THIS dream expressed in a symbolic way an answer from the unconscious to the thoughts that the dreamer had had the evening before. It had said to him, in effect: ''You yourself, must become a priest in your own inner church - in the church of your soul." [ 'Man and his Symbols' / C. Jung.

And/or {i.e.,expressed in a different form}: "In order to understand what man is at the present time, that is, at the present level of development, it is necessary to imagine to a certain extent what he can be, that is, what he can attain. Only by understanding the correct sequence of development possible will people cease to ascribe to themselves what, at present, they do not possess, and what, perhaps, they can only acquire after great effort and labour. According to ancient teaching, traces of which may be found in many systems, old and new, a man who has attained the full development possible for man, consists of four bodies. These four bodies are composed of substances which gradually become finer and finer, mutually interpenetrate one another, and form 'four' independent organisms, standing in a definite relationship to one another but capable of independent action. The reason why it is possible for four bodies to exist is that the human organism, that is, the physical body, has such a complex organism that, under certain conditions, a new independent organism can grow in it, affording a much more convenient and responsive instrument for the activity of consciousness than the physical body. The consciousness manifested in this new body is capable of governing it, and it has full power and full control over the physical body..." [ 'In Search of the Miraculous'].

Bush Barrow 'lozenge' . "Three and four."

As seen from a different 'perspective'..."The number 15 has already occurred several times and is related to the rotation of the Earth on its axis, where it takes twenty four divisions of 15 degrees to complete one revolution, what we currently define as one hour of time. It is also significant that the moon is always full on the 15th day of its cycle, the midpoint of the lunar calendar used to govern religious affairs. If Solomon's Temple was based on knowledge of the natural world and the perceived wisdom that existed at the time, then one would expect this reference to 120 cubits {i.e.,height of 'Temple' } to have some link to that understanding. Not surprisingly there is such evidence. It just so happens that all the integers in the range 1 to 15, when added together, make a total of 120. What is more, these numbers fit into an arithmetical pattern known as triangular numbers. These integers produce some interesting characteristics.

Isle of Wight flag. Lozenge?

For example, if all the odd numbers are added together, they make sixtyfour {64}.

The Great Debasement (1544–1551) was a currency debasement policy introduced in 1544 England under the order of Henry VIII which saw the amount of precious metal in gold and silver coins reduced and in some cases replaced entirely with cheaper base metals such as copper. He became known as 'Old Coppernose'....'' [Wiki].

And/or: ''Twentyfour is the number of totality, since it is connected to the twentyfour hours of the day and night -  although in antiquity the day was counted in 12 double hours of 120 minutes each - and in nautical reckoning, the glass, equalling 30 minutes measured by the hour glass, was maintained till recently. 24 also appears as a measurement: the ancient German Elle, or yard, consisted of 24 finger's' breadth.''

Doctors, masons, carpenters and experts in most professions." ['Curse of Oak Island' / Dec.2016].

In classical Greek, the word "lyre" could either refer specifically to an amateur instrument, which is a smaller version of the professional cithara and eastern-Aegean barbiton, or "lyre" can refer generally to all three instruments as a family.[2] The English word comes via Latin from the Greek

Plucked Duck?

''On a stringed instrument, staccato articulation involves short bow strikes that typically alternate between downbow and upbow strokes. The pizzicato technique of playing with fingers naturally lends itself to staccato....Pizzicato” translates roughly as “plucked”, or “pinched”. The result is a short, slightly muted sound, much like a jazz “walking bass”. Instruments using a bow (violin, cello, etc.) may use the end of their bow to pluck the strings for this effect.''

''Staccato ([stakˈkaːto]; Italian for "detached") is a form of musical articulation. In modern notation, it signifies a note of shortened duration,[1][2] separated from the note that may follow by silence.[3] It has been described by theorists and has appeared in music since at least 1676.''

''Staccato means played with a short GAP between each notes.'' ['Impossible' / S4 EP21].

The opposite musical articulation of staccato is legato, signifying long and continuous notes.

REFRESHER: "The Kingdom of Heaven is within you. The time has come for external forms and expressions to be left behind.
