''Triptomelus standing between Demeter and Kore'' [Wiki}. Question. Where have you seen a similar representation before? Question 2. ''Embossed'' = 'Stamp of approval'? Try Part 3 and/or ''Unicorn''.

Triptolemus /?tr?p't?l?m?s/ (Greek: ???pt??eµ??, lit. "threefold warrior"; also known as Buzyges), in Greek mythology always connected with Demeter of the Eleusinian Mysteries, might be accounted the son of King Celeus of Eleusis in Attica, or, according to the Pseudo-Apollodorus (Bibliotheca I.V.2), the son of Gaia and Oceanus—another way of saying he was "primordial man". ['Wiki'].

And/or: TRIPTOLEMUS (Triptolemos) - Greek Demi-God of Sowing, Milling & the Eleusinian Mysteries...Triptolemos' name is derived from the Greek words triptos and lemma meaning 'He who Pounds the Husks'...He presided over the sowing of grain-seed and the milling of wheat." Try ''quern''.
Side note:  Many heads in ancient cultures formed {elongated} purposely in the form of an 'Ear of Corn'. The Paracus people - originators of the Nazca ones especially so. The Nazca culture - that came from the north took over those at the south - including their 'religion'. Now skulls had a hole formed in the middle of the head - rope attached.

"The next type of Hercules {Khonsu?} is an agricultural as well as pastoral king and specialises in the cultivation of Barley, so that he is sometimes confused with the Eleusinian Triptolemus,  Syrian Tammuz or Egyptian Maneros. Early portraits of him with lion skin, club and grain sprouting from his shoulders {not chest {heart?} as with Osiris} - have been found in Mesopotamian cities....In the Eastern Mediterranean he reigns alternatively with his 'twin' as in the double kingdoms of Argos, Lacedaemon, Corinth, Alba Longa and Rome. Co-kings of this type {include} Iphiclus, twin to Tirynthian Hercules; Pollux, twin to Castor, Demophoon, twin to Triptolemus, Abel, twin to Cain...Hercules is now 'lover' to fifty water priestesses of the Mountain goddess in whose honour he wears a lions skin. The twin joint reign is fixed for 8 years, apparently because at every hundred lunar month occurs a rough approximation of lunar and solar times. Llew Llaw Gyffes {'the Lion with a Steady Hand'} is true to type when in the Romance of Math the Son of Mathonwy he takes Gwydion as his twin to visit his mother Arianrhod."

Something to ponder on: "But the Demeter-Kore myth is far to feminine to have been merely the result of an anima-projection. Although the anima can, as we have said, experiences herself in Demeter Kore, she is yet of a wholly different nature. She is in the highest degree 'femme a homme'....whereas Demeter-Kore exists on the plane of mother/daughter experience, which is alien to man and shuts him out. In fact, the psychology of the Demeter cult bears all the features of a matriarch order of society, where the man is an indispensable, but on the whole disturbing factor {'shadow'?.}." [Page177 'Science of Mythology'].
Question. 'Anima' therefore = Sister/Sister? OR Father/Son.

Side note: A crystal eight -pointed cross, given to Grandmaster Jean de Valette by Pope Pius V in recognition of his victory during the Great Siege of Malta, is among the items displayed in a new book that tells the story of the Order of St John. The cross is inscribed with the words unus decem millia vicit – one conquers ten thousand {'10000'}– in reference to the grandmaster having led the troops of the Order of St John in repelling the Ottoman forces, resulting in a victory that would change the course of history. It is one of the objects documented in Treasures – Faith, Care, Valour, a beautifully illustrated book filled with detailed images that help bring to life the collection within Museum of the Order of St John in the UK. As time passed, the Order improved and adapted to what was needed, said Dr Jarvis, adding: “In England we teach First Aid but are now moving more to expand our support to communities. But in some of the African countries we provide support to mothers and children during childbirth. In Malta there’s a rescue service and first aid training. We do what is most suited to the country – it’s a continuum of adapting,” he said as he commented about the stellar work of the Maltese branch and urged the public to support the work of the Order."

Team player or Self Serving? Does he speak for Mother Russia or just Himself?

What would his mother think?

A working example: ''When will they wake? When will the true Demetrius appear? Demetrius - the name comes from Demeter, the Earth Goddess. Demetrius means: the child of the earth goddess; the 'child' of the Great Mother who was born at the beginning of the Christian era. The child will rise again in the hearts of men....May it be that then the Russian nation will wake up, when fresh news of the child of Light in the hearts of men is experienced and made a reality by the Russian peasant.'' [Page 80 'Russia: Past, Present and Future' / R. Steiner].

"The true voyage of discovery, lies not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes." Marcel Proust.

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

Question. Was Shakespeare aware of this subject?

A working example: "For though the Hermetic writings reflect the fundamental world view of ancient Egypt, they can convey an erroneous theme of spiritual teaching to the casual reader. To begin with, Hermetic revelation was not a process of the teacher consciously infusing knowledge into the candidate. Rather, it was a process by which the candidate arrived at wisdom through the order of the natural universe and contemplating it...."

And/or: " The esoteric function of these structures {i.e.,temples/pyramids etc.,} - could be understood - if the appropriate tools {keys} for understanding their purpose were made accessible." [Page 8/20 'Sacred Tradition in Ancient Egypt' / R. Clark].

"open thine eyes and 'see'...." {1 Kings xix.16}.

"The word 'mystic' is from the Greek word 'muo' which means ''to be silent.'' The true mystic realizes that the highest level of insight is realized and honoured in the nature of Silence, for the fullness of reality as it exists and as it is experienced, can never be fully expressed by descriptive utterance ." [Chapter one, 'Jesus Christ Sun of God: Ancient Cosmology and Early Christian Symbolism'].

Working example: ''Until 40 years ago, corpses could still be found on top of the Towers of Silence in Yazd, Iran, slowly disintegrating or being picked apart by desert vultures....According to a tradition dating back over 3,000 years, bodies were arranged on the towers in three concentric circles. Men were placed in the outer circle, women in the middle, and children in the inner-most ring. The bodies were then left until their bones were bleached by the elements and stripped by the vultures. After the purification process, the bones were placed in ossuaries near or inside of the towers.'' ['Atlas Obscura'].

'She Who Loves Silence' a means.....

Link to objectivity. Purpose of. The symbol of which, is sometimes represented with a ''waveless body of water.'' Or put another way....''Still waters run deep.'' i.e., ... "Is not silence the very voice of 'Great Spirit' ? Black Elk [Emphasis, this readers].

'See' the word {logos} of the Lord." {Jer. ii. 31}. Get it?

''The three decades Jesus spent in Nazareth are commonly called "the silent years", with the Gospels telling us close to nothing about that long period in his life. Over the centuries, Christians have sought for sites suitable for commemorating events from Jesus' life in his home village.''

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

"The primary object of every intelligent person must be to deny the corporeality of 'God', and to believe that all godly perceptions are of a spiritual not of a 'material' character. Note this and consider it well. ['Guide for the perplexed'].

Think about it in relation to those Signs/Keys/ Correspondences etc. All as a means...?

silence"The gnostic sense begins to operate when it is a matter of a new dimension in the act of knowledge, namely that of depth. It becomes active when it is a question of something deeper than the question: is it true or false? {and/or yes or no. Enlarged elsewhere}. It perceives more the significance of the truth discovered by discursive thought and also ''why this truth is truth in itself'', i.e.,it reaches to the 'mystical' or essential source of this truth. How does it arrive at this? By listening in silence. It is as if one wanted to recall something forgotten. Consciousness, ''listens'' in silence, as one ''listens'' inwardly in order to call to mind from the night of forgetfulness something that one formally knew. But there is an essential difference between the ''listening silence'' of contemplation and the silence arising from the effort to recall...

Bull of the Sky?

In this second situation, it is the horizontal - in time, past and present - which comes into play, whilst the ''listening silence'' of contemplation relates to the vertical - to that which is above and that which is below. In the act of recall, one establishes in oneself an inner mirror in order to reflect the 'past': when one ''listens in silence'' in the state of contemplation, one also makes consciousness into a mirror, but this mirror has the task of reflecting that which is above. It is the act of recall in the vertical." [Taken from the book by Tomberg].

Side note: "The cause, the first mystery, can have but one aim: the second mystery, and then the final equilibrium in the Present Moment." [Page 12 'The Egyptian Mystery'].

'Second to none'.

egyptian-relief-vector-drawing-fragment-ancient-picture-stonIn other words all the above could be described as the process and benefit of ''objectivity'' in understanding something. Its step by step guide. This 'subject' [in parts and whole] - being in this case - its aim. Represented in the above paragraph as horizontal / vertical, i.e.,contemplation of the vertical, i.e.,universal framework and/or especially what all infer by the ''divine bit'' [''mystical'' link] - from the 'horizontal' position,i.e.,from a horizontal perspective or viewpoint. That 'process' of learning that within this subject is represented [in the Egyptian case] with ''in profile'' as opposed; to ''face on''.

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

''The word 'mystery' comes from the Greek 'myein', to keep silent....The real secret about the mysteries is that they cannot be communicated by one being {'teacher'?} to another: the mystery guardian can only give guidelines and keys to knowledge, not actual knowledge itself, which is revealed to the initiate by personal experience and {or?} revelatory realisation." ['The Wester Way: A Practical Guide to the Western Mystery Tradition'. Chapter 1].

Crystal Clear?

A proven: ''I decided to test Joe Campbell hypothesis that myths are corporeal or at least contained innately in the memories of sinews and the caches of the brain....I would have to look for them in their PUREST form in the minds of children - and not just any children, but ones who had not been exposed to radio, television, or movies, from which they could have picked up mythic stories....I was looking for the causal zone of myth. After a search i was able to locate a number of children whose parents refused to have any media in the house.'' [Page 95 'A Mythic Life' / J. Houston].

The author goes on to describe a ''new story'' as requested of a young man called Jimmy who searches within himself for one. Briefly; VERY briefly: ''Once upon a time there was a little boy, who had a mummy; loved his mummy, married her; had many babies; and then goes away with his sister.'' The author believing the above relates to the Oedipus myth. For this reader it relates more to the Egyptian culture - Pharaohs, mothers and sisters. Meritaten in particular. Enlarged elsewhere. A more PROVEN example - for this reader - with possible synchronistic links would be:


Xmas Tree?

A practical example: ''I think this is the hardest thing i've ever done. But i will tell you without shame, that i pray i come out of here a better man, and a thankful man, for all my blessings....I've been told countless times i'm to much to hang around with - the reason i don't have many friends....I've been thinking of all the people i've neglected along the way....Especially mother and father....Life's a tragedy all around for all of us, but now i'm sat here in Rock House with all this time on my hands, at the apex of my career, it gives time for thought - {reflection} 'i feel i hav'nt done my family right especially parents and sister....I,ve pursued everything that I wanted to do without considering them - but in the end it can only be what it is - 'it is what it is' - I like that saying....Todays day ninety-nine; Christmas Day. I plant this Christmas tree with this star i made on top at Rock House. I'II never forget this Christmas. Never as long as i live....I never thought that anything could change me or crack me, but i'm certainly going to be a more thankful man....{Day after} ''Today is day 100. This is a great day for me. Very great. Just struck off day one hundred on this calendar tree. Day one - all the way down there at the base...I dedicate this day to my deceased mother....{reflection} ''I've always been alone. Even when i'm with someone or in a crowd - a sort of island that way.... Its dead silent right now, dead silent and calm. Everything has a rhythm and a beat and a silence....i just love to hear that dead silence - if that makes any sense." [Roland / winner of 'Alone' / History Channel/ 2020].

Try Billy Connolly for another.

Crackstone Ridge?

Hole in the S/E corner of the FOUNDATION stone within the Dome of the Rock. A ''light'' may shine through it. Recall the ''help'' section in relation to ''eye''. Anything?

Analogy: ''The best day of my life - my rebirth day, so to speak - was when I found I had no head. This is not a literally gambit, a witticism designed to arouse interest at any cost. I mean it in all seriousness.

I have no head.

Sunrise or sunset? Moonrise?

It was when I was 33 that I made the discovery, though it certainly came out of the blue, it did so in response to an urgent inquiry - I had for several months been absorbed in the question: What am I?....What actually happened was something absurdly simple and unspectacular: just for the moment I stopped thinking. Reason and imagination and all mental chatter died down. For once words really failed me. I forgot my name, my humanness, my thingness, ALL that could be called me or mine. Past and future dropped away. It was if I been born in that instant, brand new, mindless, innocent of all memories, there existed only the Now, that present moment that was clearly given in it. To look was enough....It took me no time at all to notice that this nothing, this hole where a head should have been was no ordinary vacancy {void?} no mere nothing...


On the contrary, it was very much occupied...." [Chapter one entitled 'The True Seeing' from the book 'On Having No Head'].

nhyOr New Testament equivalent; Matthew 5:37, i.e.,''let your communication be yes or no...'']. Both enlarged elsewhere. 'See' it? i.e.,the result of which = a eureka moment. Representational of. Hermetic equivalent..."Fusion, inner unity, is obtained by means of 'friction', by the struggle between 'yes' and 'no' in man. If a man lives without inner struggle; if everything happens to him without opposition; if he goes wherever he is drawn or wherever the wind blows, he will remain such as he is. But if a struggle begins in him {'fire'?}, and particularly if there is a definite line in this struggle, then, gradually, permanent traits begin to form themselves, he begins to 'crystallise'. Crystallisation is possible on any foundations." [Extract from the book by Tomberg. 'Letter Xiii' ].

Link to ''Temple'' symbolism. For a deeper 'read' try ''wrestle'' or 'crystallize" and/or especially ''line of sight'' in the usual box - before those first impressions dictate {suggest?} something else.

Fishers of men?

''When fishing became my therapy; i wondered why it was having such a positive affect on me. Then i discovered the psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.  He's famous for coming up with the practical theory that something that can completely engross you can help many mental health conditions {including boredom? - recall Part 1}. He calls it ''Flow''. The concept of flow. BEING in the flow, in the zone, in the moment - its a fairly new term - its also as OLD AS THE HILLS {al-Qurn?}. Its Eastern philosophy, its Buddihism, its Zen, all those things. Its about losing oneself in the MOMENT. And we all know what being in the zone is - its when time stands still {'Saturn'?]. Concerns whether they be about money, relationships, profession, career etc - all the mundane stuff - just falls to one side {'in profile'?} - and you are just FOCUSED in the moment....A state of equilibrium. ['Robson and Jims Fly-fishing Adventure in Iceland' / ITV].

Landscape equivalent {can you 'see' it?}: "It is also remarkable that the exact explanation of the 'light of the moon' was almost founded by the Egyptians. 'Khonsu-lo' - light of the night - image of the left eye of Amon {Amun}, rising in the Bahkt { East}. While Aton {the Sun} is in the Ankhet {West}. Thebes is flooded with their light, for the left eye receives the light of the right eye when they are re-united on the day when the two bulls meet. The only reservation to be made is that this short text appears to refer to the refection of the solar light by the moon - at the moment of opposition." [Quote by Philippe Derchain from the book 'Serpent in the Sky' by J. West].

Side note: "The manifestation of Atum-Ra between the twin peaks of the mountain of the horizon." [Picture of same, page 256 'Temple of the Cosmos'].

Continued: Question. ''At the moment of opposition'' relative to - ''if everything happens to him without opposition'' {two para's back} represented with New {dark} moon and its cycle to Full moon. All as a means...?

Therefore Libra {'scales'} and/or 180 degrees? And/or: Planets within a ''line of sight'' {conjunction?} together with ''full moon'' = ?

'Mysteries of the Dark Moon' / D. George.

A more practical example of same could be the book ' Play of Consciousness' by Swami Muktananda. Understanding what all cultures infer by the ''Divine bit''[within the same acclaimed 'framework'] gives a credible logic; a credible hypothesis; in understanding that internal 'story'. "What is understood intellectually through books and study can be experienced directly through Siddha Yoga." [Chapter 24, 'Play of Consciousness'].

And/or therefore - vice versa.

"Traditionally, there were two methods for understanding the message of the Yoga Sutras. The first method relied on a teachers commentary to unlock the abstract and sometimes difficult to comprehend information presented in the text. The second method relied on the students own inner capacity to find the meaning of each sutra through contemplative inquiry. In most cases, both are necessary for maximum comprehension. The words of the teacher can point the student in the right direction to grasping the truth, but it is up to the student to gain direct perception of the truth that is implied. Otherwise, no actual learning takes place." [From the book 'Kriya Yoga' by R. Kurczak].

As seen from a different 'angle' and/or perspective..."Magic was seen as an aspect of science as well as religion, and its roots were traced back thousands of years through the wider reconstruction of the history of the written knowledge." [Quote from the book by Owen Davies].

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

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 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...." [Forward to the book 'The White Goddess' / R. Graves].
Side note: Why a 'serpent'? Crawls on belly {horizontal?} but can strike in the vertical? Can be found in both salt and fresh water? Sheds its skin? etc. All as a means...?
Try ''poison/antidote''.
Refresher: "The children of Seth [Set] first possessed that peculiar sort of wisdom, which is concerned with the heavenly bodies",[chapter five.' The Sirius Mystery'],

Try ''magic'' before those first impressions hint {'lie'?} at something else.

"The task of the scholar of esoteric studies is not to prove that such an invisible 'tradition', hidden behind the veil of historic events, did or did not exist; as such; before the Renaissance; rather, the task consists of trying to grasp and to describe the different facets of the emergence of this idea as it appears in the imaginary and the discourses of the last centuries [and/or millenniums. This readers input]. Quote by A. Faivre.

The Mehen board game.

From a different perspective: "...dreams are a source of great wisdom and insight. This is true of the following dream - dreamt by a woman soon after she came to a Sufi group: 'I am being kissed by a man. it is the most wonderful experience. It is not sexual, just a pure feeling of love in the heart. It touches me in the heart very deeply. But then I feel a tongue in my mouth, and it is not his tongue. I open my eyes and see that I am embracing a serpent, and it is the serpents tongue in my mouth. I feel frightened.' This dream contains two images that symbolize fundamental aspects of the Sufi path, the lover and the serpent. Sufism is a love affair, a relationship between the lover and the Beloved .'' [Intro to the book 'The Lover and the Serpent' / Llewellyn Vaughan Lee].

Question. ''Fundamental aspects'' = the understanding of that universal ''bit''? i.e., whatever we take an interest in especially those 'habitual' ones - do we not sooner or later dream about them? The real question is what does that really mean in relation to that ''bit'' should it be something more real than a MIND SET.

Songs of Solomon?

A {working?} example: "I was at the same cafe where i met G. the next day, and the day following, and every day afterwards. During the week i spent in Moscow i saw G. every day. It very soon became clear to me that he knew very much of what i wanted to know. Among other things he explained to me certain phenomena i had come across in India which no one had been able to explain to me either there, on the spot, or afterwards. In his explanations i felt the assurance of a specialist, a very fine analysis of facts, and a system which i was not able to grasp until then - because G.'s explanation made me think not only of the facts under discussion, but also of many other things i had observed or conjectured." ['In Search of the Miraculous'].

Latin...''in this sign you will conquer''. Question. Conquer what? Look up horizontal / vertical for clues. Also N/E - S/W : as a beginning of what? Question. Top/down or bottom/up?

"One of the main means whereby man arrives at an understanding of that great sum total we call the Macrocosm - 'God', functioning through a solar system - is by an understanding of himself, and the Delphic injunction ''Man, know thyself'' was an inspired utterance, intended to give man the clue to the mystery of deity. Through the Law of Analogy, or correspondence, the cosmic processes, and the nature of the cosmic principles are indicated in the functions, structure and characteristics of a human being. They are indicated but are not explained or elaborated. They serve simply as signposts [or keys], directing man along the path whereon future sign posts may be found and more definite indications noted." [Introduction to the book by Alice Bailey].

Recall what ''correspondence'' implies.

"The sign expresses the thing. A thing is the virtue of its sign. There is an analogical correspondence between the sign and the thing signified. The more perfect the sign, the more complete is the correspondence." Quote taken from the book by E. Levi.

'God is in the detail' ?

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

'Devil in the detail'.

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

''Sold to the owner of a 'Bed and Breakfast' - who hung it above his bed.'' {'Salvage Hunters' / S7 EP4}.

"...the word Yoga is a sanskrit term meaning to unite the individual with the 'Cosmic'. The term has been used in certain parts of this book for ease of communication since the word ''Yoga'' has received wide popularity especially in western countries in recent years. The ancient Egyptian equivalent term to the Sanskrit word yoga is: ''Smai'' - which means union, and the following determinative terms give it a spiritual significance, at once equating it with the term ''Yoga'' as it is used in India. When used in conjunction with the ancient Egyptian symbol which means land, ''Ta'' the term 'union of the two lands' arises." [Extract taken from the book by Sebai Ashby].

''TA'' link to Tatenem {'T'?} and/or Taten - some say the 'God' of the ''Primordial Mound''. Memphis one of his/her main locations. The border of both upper/lower Egypt. The Sycamore tree being one of its emblems. To meditate [and/or study] by way of higher and lower = a result?

Side note: ''People assume they can never meditate because they cant stop thinking. I cannot say this enough: the goal is not to clear your mind but to focus your mind - for a few nanoseconds at a time - and when ever you become distracted all you need to do is just start again. Getting lost and starting  over is not failing at meditation. It is succeeding.''[Readers Dijest / August 2021].

Continued: "Egyptian mythology, when understood as a system of Yoga [ union of Upper /Lower}. Enlarged elsewhere], gives every individual insight into their own divine nature and also a deeper insight into all religions and Yoga systems." [Same book].

Central figure, upside down?

'Higher'/'lower' in relation to: ''You have seen desert mirages; they seem to depict real landscapes, they are deceptive and upside - down. Thus it is with illusory pictures of the Field of Reeds. Everything that is registered in the emotional life is reflected in the ''robe of Nut'' or Akashic screen and lasts for a time that is determined by the life of the lower consciousness involved. Those who live in the Field of Reeds are such as still feel drawn to the 'shade' to the attractions of Earthly existence; they relive the 'mirage' … the grip of 'hostile' forces that prevent their passing to a higher state....slaves of the Me....the Field of Reeds and the Field of Offerings are to be regarded as inferior heavens...they are shown with lakes and streams....awaiting successive changes; with islands to signify that one is stuck in certain conditions - it is a question of ''making one's own plant grow in the marches'', a new subtle body that is comfortable with the new state {'city'?} of affairs - fit to shew the ''true face''. [Page 215/6 'Her-Bak: Egyptian Initiate' / Isha Schwaller de Lubicz].


Live queen moor?

New face?

Side note: ''The Welsh Marches (Welsh: Y Mers) is an imprecisely defined area along the border between England and Wales in the United Kingdom. The precise meaning of the term has varied at different periods. The English term Welsh March (in Medieval Latin Marchia Walliae)[1] was originally used in the Middle Ages to denote the marches between England and the Principality of Wales, in which Marcher lords had specific rights, exercised to some extent independently of the king of England. In modern usage, "the Marches" is often used to describe those English counties which lie along the border with Wales, particularly Shropshire and Herefordshire, and sometimes adjoining areas of Wales. However, at one time the Marches included all of the historic counties of Cheshire, Shropshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire.

In this context the word march means a border region or frontier, and is cognate with the verb "to march," both ultimately derived from Proto-Indo-European *mereg-, 'edge' or 'boundary'...''

And/or: "This even speaks of an earlier time when written language was first developed from the only two possible basic elements; the dot {or circle} and the line. Alphabetically it has been shown that Egyptian developed into Protosinaitic, then Phoenician, which traders spread across the world where it became Early then later Greek, and finally Latin. The Egyptian eye became O and the cross became T." ['Revealing the Green Man' / M. Olly].

"The respected scholar Dr. David Frawley, Director of the American Institute of Vedic Studies, writing in the bimonthly journal 'Yoga International' [oct/nov. 1996], states - ' Yogananda can be said to be the father of yoga in the West - not the mere physical yoga that has become popular, but the spiritual yoga - the science of self realization - that is the real meaning of yoga." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'. Mentioned elsewhere]. |



Tatenen. Question. Green?

Tatenen is a chthonic deity who in many respects is comparable to the earth god Geb. His realm is the deep regions underneath the earth from which everything emerges, plants and vegetables, but also minerals, all of which belong to Tatenen.
Tatenen is first attested in the Coffin Texts,where his name appears as Tanenu or Tanuu, 'the inert land', a name which characterizes him as a god of the primeval condition of the earth. As such he is shown with two snakes on his head, an indication of the chthonic character of the god. Middle Kingdom texts also provide the first examples of the form Tatenen, 'the rising/risen/exalted land', i.e. the primeval hill on which the creator god appeared at the beginning of creation, and this soon became the usual form of the god's name. From the 19th Dynasty on Tatenen is linked to the Memphite god Ptah as Ptah-Tatenen. This deity is then worshipped as a royal god and as a creator god; as such he can even be called the father of the Ogdoad of Hermopolis, the eight gods who themselves embody the primeval elements from before creation. Ptah-Tatenen is usually depicted in human form wearing a crown consisting of a pair of ram's horns surmounted by a sun disk and two tall feathers.

"There is much to be learned concerning the use that was made by the ancient initiated priesthood; of the fact that the gods and goddesses ; are three aspected; by watching with the inner eye [i.e., objective analysis] what is done in group meditations by those Orders -that have recovered something of these ancient methods from their own unpublished manuscripts as well as from the published works of Briffault and Frazer, as well as from the books of many other scholars..."

July's full moon is also called the "thunder" moon because of early summer's frequent thunderstorms, NASA's Gordon Johnston said. Another name for July's full moon is the "hay" moon (for when farmers race to put hay in their barns around the storms), reported.

And/or: ''The states of the moon are similar to the states of the things of this world, that is, animal, plants, etc., since the moon begins increasing in light and perfection at the beginning of the month until it becomes complete in the MIDDLE of the month. Then it starts to decrease and dissolve and is effaced by the end of the month. In the same way, the states of individuals of this world increase in the beginning. They never cease growing and being configured, untill they are complete and perfect. Then they begin to decline and decrease until they dissolve and come to nothing .'' [Page 89-90 'Tao of Islam].

''Trident'' in relation to ''metal of the mind''. All within a ''river''.

Something hinted at: "And what of the philosophers secret 'fire'? The aim of a secret is to evoke a sense of mystery, to mobilize all our faculties and to put us on our mettle {'metal of the mind'?}. It lures us on, even deceives us into embarking on a prospective quest whose ordeals would otherwise deter us. We set out in search of the hidden knowledge and power we believe the secret will confer - only to find on the way that these things are images of a wisdom and glory we did not dream of in the beginning. The secret i have tried to reveal on every other page of this book is in a sense no secret - it is an open secret passed along a Golden Chain of initiates, like the secrets of the Greek Mysteries. And as to 'its' philosophy, by whose assistance these mysteries are developed - it will make its appearance at different periods of time, as long as the sun himself shall continue to illuminate the world..."

"Eureka" comes from the Ancient Greek word εὕρηκα heúrēka, meaning "I have found (it)", which is the first person singular perfect indicative active of the verb εὑρίσκω heurískō "I find".[1] It is closely related to heuristic, which refers to experience-based techniques for problem-solving, learning, and discovery.''

A brilliant young scholar....In the late 1570's he formed a circle called the Dionisii Areopagites with among others Edmond Spenser, whose poem The Faerie Queene is famous for Rosicrucian and other esoteric imagery....The Cabala was central to his studies. He believed in the mathematical foundation of all things....IT IS a little known fact, but documented, that at the height of his fortunes Dr Dee owned a charter granting him ownership of the vast landmass called Canada, and his vision of a British Empire - a phrase he coined - helped inspire and guide the nations voyages of discovery.''

"We have to admit that, more than once, we have encountered great difficulties in following some of the indications left by Fulcanelli as he skipped along the Way of the Fool, juggling with words {keys?}, occasionally allowing one to fall to the floor for the benefit of his followers." ['The Zelator'].

As an example {i.e.,something hinted at - something allowed to ''fall to the floor'' ...}: "Four 'gammas' arranged in a circle with a communal center make the swastika, the solar symbol. Numerologically, these four gammas total twelve, and echo the path of the sun against the zodiac belt...On a deeper level, the swastika is also a symbol of reincarnation, for the three and the one combine from lifetime to lifetime..." ['The Zelator'].

carExample of {i.e.,a work in progress}: "The potential literature for an intellectual study of this is vast. We hope we have provided a few simple pointers on the way. It is however, a 'centering' in, rather than a wandering in the labyrinthine fields {outer?} of intellectual speculation, that is the direct way of truth. The 'rose' blooms at the center of the cross. And those who are prepared to contemplate the imagery and take it unto their inmost hearts are the more likely to be met by Beatrice from the triumphal car {'chariot'}, and 'led' to places where even the intellectual genius of a Virgil cannot go."

As seen from a different perspective {i.e.,a visual one?}: "Throughout the Iliad, the chariots of warriors are represented by triangles of three stars. A good example is seen by King Nestor and his two chariots who leads his troops into battle: 'He placed his knights with the chariots and horses in the front rank'. Another group of stars in the triangular formation of a chariot is found close to the personal star of Hector in Orion..." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Refresher: As is the word 'Pyramid'. Those first three letters that means 'fire', [Key. Mentioned elsewhere]. 'Triangles' on top of a 'square' base. Those acute angles that somehow have 'hidden' within them the concept of the circle. As the author of the 'Egyptian Dawn' informs the reader..."The Giza plan is essentially invisible, and was meant to be so. There is nothing obvious about it, and no casual eye was ever meant to perceive it. You may know the old proverb...'If you want to conceal something successfully, hide it in plain sight".

Analogy: {or something deeper?}: "There are strong mythical and astronomical links between Nestor and the constellation of Auriga. Known in Mesopotamia since ancient times as the Driver or Charioteer, conventional Greek legend associates this constellation with lame Erechtonius, King of Athens, who crippled and unable to move about easily, invented the four horse chariot and as a reward was placed by Zeus in the skies, as the constellation. Homer uses elements of both sources to describe Auriga in the Iliad...In the Iliad, King Nestor, the aging ruler of Pylos, is known as the Gerenian charioteer and, like Erechtonius, has a strong body but weak legs...Nestor's commanders are the bright stars in the outline of the constellation, his chariots are two groups of three stars..."

Duality, therefore 'Gnosis' link?

Something to ponder on {synchronistic?}: "A superior agreement is found in the metaphor for the human psyche in the Platonic dialogue Phaedrus. Socrates likens the human soul to a chariot drawn by two horses - one black, one white - puling in different directions and weakly controlled by the charioteer. The metaphor of the chariot itself is remarkably similar to MacLean's neural chassis: the two horses, to the R-complex and the limbic cortex; and the charioteer barely in control of the careening chariot and horses, to the neocortex. In yet another metaphor, Freud described the ego as the rider of an unruly horse. Both the Freudian and the Platonic metaphors emphasize the considerable independence of the tension among the constituent parts of the psyche, a point that characterizes the human condition and to which we will return. Because of the neuroanatomical connections between the three components, the triune brain must itself, like the Phaedrus chariot, be a metaphor; but it may prove to be a metaphor of great utility and depth....The triune-brain model derives from studies of comparative neuroanatomy and behaviour. But honest introspection is not unknown in the human species, and if the triune brain model is correct, we would expect some hint of it in the history of human SELF KNOWLEDGE. The most widely known hypothesis that is at least reminiscent of the triune brain is Sigmund Freud's division of the human psyche into id, ego and super-ego..." [Page 81/82 'The Dragons of Eden' / C. Sagan]. Try ''Jung''.

Even though that 'model' has been improved upon - its basics {'metaphors'?} still apply. Apply those universal constants - that define something of the 'inner' self - but only when you understand what is implied by that ''divine bit''. All the way back to the ''oral'' tradition BEFORE the written word came into common use. Hence....

Who understood the benefits of objectivity first. Cro-magnon man or Neanderthal?

''The concept of the triune brain is in remarkable accord with the conclusions, drawn independently from studies of brain to body mass ratio's - that the emergence of mammals and of primates {especially humans} was accompanied by major bursts in brain evolution. It is very difficult to evolve by altering the deep fabric of life; any change there, is likely to be lethal. But fundamental change can be accomplished by the addition of new systems on top of the old ones." [Page 59, same book].

Ferrybridge Yorkshire. The oldest fully assembled 'chariot' found anywhere in the UK. Question. 'Four' horses or ONLY two? What does that imply in relation to the 'whole'. Strong or weak?

Hell's chariot.

Side note: "You must know that the collective noun in Hebrew denoting animals used for riding is ''merkabah'' i.e.,''Joseph made ready his chariot''{Gen. xlvi.29}….The following passage especially proves that the Hebrew Merkabah denotes a collection of animals: ''And a Merkabah came up and went out of Egypt for six hundred shekels of silver, and a horse for a hundred and fifty.'' {1Kings x.21}. Hence we may learn that Merkabah denotes here four horses. Therefore I think that when it was stated, according to the literal sense of the words, that four Hayyot {beasts} carry the Throne of Glory, our sages called this ''Merkabah'' on account of its similarity of the Merkabah consisting of four single animals.'' So far has the theme of this chapter carried us, and we shall be compelled to make many further remarks on this subject. Here, however, it is our object, and the aim of all we have said, to show that ''who rideth upon heaven'' {Deut.xxxiii.26} means ''who sets the all surrounding 'sphere' in motion and 'turns' it by his power and will."

Continued: "Qualities of Will for instance, were often referred to as belonging to limbs: powerful legs and strong arms indicated strength of will and the capacity to carry out one's wishes. There is a chapter in the Book of the Dead for ''gaining power in the legs,'' an expression that must, given its context, refer to the strengthening of the qualities of soul normally associated with the lower limbs. In it the Underworld traveller says: 'My strides are made long, my thighs are lifted up; I have passed along the great path, and my limbs are strong'..." [Page 179 'Temple of the Cosmos'].

''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).''

'peaked' hats? Triangular?

Working example: ''The name "Barbados" is from either the Portuguese term os barbados or the Spanish equivalent, los barbados, both meaning "the bearded ones". It is unclear whether "bearded" refers to the long, hanging roots of the bearded fig-tree (Ficus citrifolia), a species of banyan indigenous to the island, or to the allegedly bearded Caribs who once inhabited the island, or, more fancifully, to a visual impression of a beard formed by the sea foam that sprays over the outlying coral reefs. In 1519, a map produced by the Genoese mapmaker Visconte Maggiolo showed and named Barbados in its correct position. Furthermore, the island of Barbuda in the Leewards is very similar in name and was once named "Las Barbudas" by the Spanish.

Side note: ''Nemetona's association with Loucerius/Llew equates her naturally to that romantic figure of Welsh myth, the flower goddess Bloddeuwedd. He tale can be found in the collection of Welsh myths contained in The Mabinogion, where it is said she was formed of flowers and sea foam by the Welsh wizards Gwydion and Math to be the bride of Llew llaw Gyffes. However, this is likely to be a patriarchal gloss over an earlier story, as Bloddeuwedd is said to attempt murdering Llew with her lover Gronw and is turned into an owl by Gwydion as punishment. This reveals her to be a fierce and strong female character, a force of nature rather than a passive creation of man....A far more ancient goddess than the story initially suggests....Nemetona's presence in Celtic Europe is likely to have been widespread, as further inscriptions exist as do place names relating to her and her sacred groves.'' [Page 19/20 'Celtic Tree Magic' / Danu Forest].

Continued: ''The original name for Barbados in the Pre-Columbian era was Ichirouganaim, according to accounts by descendants of the indigenous Arawakan-speaking tribes in other regional areas, with possible translations including "Red land with white teeth"[12] or "Redstone island with teeth outside (reefs)"[13] or simply "Teeth".

While one might speculate that this was the result of the domestication of cats during the course of the First Intermediate Period, even in the Old Kingdom queens and princesses had been associated with lions, which appear on sedan chairs and thrones....Female cats and lionesses were associated mythologically with goddesses, the 'eye of Re', while male cats were sometimes linked with the sun god Re himself.''

Close by, at a peak where a rowan tree grew near a thorn i was moved to clasp the rowan to make contact its physical and etheric roots via all the thorn and rowan trees of Albion and Hellas. As i did this a sudden wind sprang up physically around me, and feeling surrounded by air and other elementals and i was urged to run down the mountainside toward a special sacred spot, only to find myself suddenly dropped by the elementals who were guiding my feet, and so fell, badly spraining my ankle and breaking blood vessels in my foot {'left'?}. The sudden pain seemed to act as a seal to the union of the forces. Here i planted one of the red Welsh jasper stones left over from the previous Hawkwood. I was able to continue walking that day, but my foot later swelled so badly i was incapacitated for the rest of the trip, by which time no less than three of us were limping for one reason or another. I was reminded of a species of ritual laming i suffered immediately after attempting my own first Qabalistic pathworking at the foundation of my small house group. Ostensibly it was the result of a bad mosquito bite but it marked an important initiatory beginning with resonance to the lamed god evoked in that sequence. It drew attention to an important link with Asclepios - a lamed god - who showed up strongly again at his major center at Epidauros..." [' I called it Magic'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Flag of Zaragoza

And/or: According to ancient local tradition, soon after the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus, Saint James was preaching the Gospel in Spain, but was disheartened because of the failure of his mission.[4] Tradition holds that on 2 January 40 AD,[3] while he was deep in prayer by the banks of the Ebro,[6] the Mother of God appeared to him and gave a column of jasper and instructed him to build a church in her honor:[4] "This place is to be my house, and this image and column shall be the title and altar of the temple that you shall build."[7]

'Eight' days.

The church itself is colossal: this great, many-domed rectangle dominates the historic core, and its four gigantic bell towers can be seen from miles away. The exterior is covered in brick in a nod to Aragón’s tradition of Mudéjar architecture, but the inside is a riot of Baroque opulence as weighty white pillars receive swooping, decorated arches and brilliant, sky-blue paint contrasts with the stark white of the pilasters. Upon entering the church, you’re immediately greeted by the woody fragrance of incense. The basilica’s gargantuan side chapels could dwarf small parish churches, and Byzantine-style pendentive domes balance precariously over the grand interior space. The reputed original pillar is venerated in the Chapel of El Pilar, and you can even go up to an exposed oval to kiss or touch the jasper column.

I really enjoyed taking the elevator to the top of one of the bell towers, skipping over 800 steps and taking in panoramic views of Zaragoza. To the north, foreboding clouds rolled in from the Pyrenees mountains, and before me the Ebro River flowed southeast to the Mediterranean. Beneath the bell tower, colorful zig-zag patterns decorated the ten or so chapel domes. To the south, the city sprawled out from the historic core, and to the east, across the half-kilometer-long Plaza del Pilar, the La Seo Cathedral made its existence known, its single onion-topped bell tower held in friendly rivalry to the basilica across the square.


About a year after the apparition, James is believed to have had a small chapel built in Mary's honor, the first church ever dedicated to her. After James returned to Jerusalem, he was executed by Herod Agrippa in about 44 AD, the first apostle to be martyred for his faith. Several of his disciples took his body and returned it for final burial in Spain.[4] This first chapel was eventually destroyed with various other Christian shrines, but the statue and the pillar stayed intact under the protection of the people of Zaragoza.[5]

Many of the kings of Spain, many other foreign rulers and saints have paid their devotion before this statue of Mary. Saint John of the Cross, Saint Teresa of Ávila, Saint Ignatius of Loyola, and Blessed William Joseph Chaminade are among the foremost ones.[5] The Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar is one of two minor basilicas in the city of Zaragoza, and is co-cathedral of the city alongside the nearby La Seo de Zaragoza. The architecture is of Baroque style, and the present building was predominantly built between 1681 and 1872.


Refresher: ''On many Russian churches the crosses on the domes often have a slanting support bar underneath the cross. This is a Russian tradition that Christ was lame...'' [Page 266 'Russia: Past, Present and Future' / R. Steiner].

Objective view? {''three and four''?}.

Side note: "Later, Philemon became relativized by the emergence of yet another figure, whom I called Ka. In ancient Egypt the 'kings Ka' was his 'earthly' form , the embodied soul. In my fantasy, the ka-soul came from belows. out of the earth as if out of a deep shaft {Osiris shaft?}. I did a painting of him, showing him in his earth bound form, as a herm with a base of stone and upper part of bronze. High up in the painting {heart?} appears a kingfishers wing, and between it and the head of Ka floats a round glowing nebula of stars....Philemon had a lame foot....{with the wings of a kingfisher}. He was a winged spirit....In time I was able to integrate both figures through the study of alchemy." [Pages 207-210 'Memories, Dreams and Reflections' / C. G. Jung].

From a different perspective: "All knowledge is the result of illumination from above, not of abstractions from below. And in the mystical angelologies of Avicenna and Suhrawardi, that active intellect, which is merely conceived by abstract theorizing, is actually encountered in the 'Event' - at the limit of the cosmos - {i.e.,'boundary' line of higher/lower divisions} - Hence the final sentence - ''as personified and individualised in a Celestial Person {'angel' and/or 'archetype'?}, who is in each case unique.

As one example: {the 'pagan' one?}: ''The archetypal role of Culhwch can be seen not only from the name 'pig - run' he bears from having been born in one, thus demonstrating his place in 'pig' mythology, but also from the fact that, in all this extensive literature with its numerous repetitions of personal names, his own name is unique and nothing is known of him {'zero'?}....He bears all the marks of the 'hero' in the psychological SENSE. He is of royal birth, but at the same time he is born like an animal. He has to seek an unknown bride {Shulamite/Nefertiti?}. In order to win her, he has to overcome apparently invincible monsters, both 'male' and 'female', though not, as we have seen, WITHOUT THE HELP OF Arthur who here appears as a kind of superordinate self {'higher' self?}.''

As seen from a different perspective: "The journal provides a 'thread' to your everyday begins to consolidate your will towards a singular aim. Crowley once said that the 'magicians' sole aim was to interpret his own 'magical' record, and after many years i have come to agree with him." [Same book,i.e.,'The Magister' - emphasis, this readers].

A practical {working?} example..."In this dream, i was living with my family in an area near Mesa Verde, in a home i had never seen before. I was going into my garage to get my car - in this dream, the garage was a huge place - when i saw that some Indians were living there. I went up to them to ask if everything was okay, but they ran away. Nothing like this had ever happened before. I remember thinking, ''How odd that they would want to live in my garage." Then as i headed for my car, i saw three young Indian children running to the back of my garage to hide from me. I went over to see where they were hiding and to speak to them, and i saw that they had gone into a round hole three feet in diameter. I knew i had never seen this hole before. I looked into the hole and saw that it went deep into the earth, so i dropped inside to find what was in there. The underground space opened into a very large tunnel about twelve feet high and wide...I am sure that i had not gone more than a quarter mile, when lots of them {children} blocked my way...Then three men who appeared to be in their thirties gently pushed their way to the front...The oldest one, he might even have been forty or so began to speak."

A more practical attempt on the same...'The Future of the Ancient World', ['essays on the history of consciousness']. By J. Naydler. And / or 'The Synchronicity Key' by D. Wilcock. For a head scratcher, compare, 'Creative Evolution' by H. Bergson to 'The Reflexive Universe' [evolution of consciousness] by A. M. Young. Together with 'The Consciousness of the Atom' [try not to laugh] by Alice Bailey, and 'A study in Consciousness' by Annie Besant, and/or 'Philosophical Geometry' by Andre Vandenbroeck. And/or ''God and the Unconscious' by Victor White. Or 'Symbol and the Symbolic: Ancient Egypt, Science, and the Evolution of Consciousness' / R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz.

Refresher: "In trying to understand the atom, physicists built quantum mechanics, the most successful theory in science and the basis of one third of our economy. They found, to their embarrassment, that with their theory, physics encounters consciousness." [From the book 'Quantum Enigma' by B. Rosenblum and F. Kuttner].

Refresher: " I make no secret whatsoever of the fact that my rather revolutionary model of the atom came to me in a dream.'' Niels Bohr.

Finally, for a very good read, that seems to tie in all the above with 'its' possible 'physical' connection [possibility of], try.."The Hidden Messages in Water" by Masaru Emoto. "A New York Times Bestseller", [although it has to be said, that these days there seems to be more "best sellers" than bunny rabbits or would that be 'hares'?].

OR "We need no longer to remain ignorant about the structure, identity and purpose of Consciousness. It is merely a biological is written into the energy of the universe itself". [Introduction to the book 'The Source Field Investigations'. D. Wilcock]. That sentence understood, in relation to the information within his book. This subject only touched on within the same book, especially in relation to the 'Pineal gland'. Understanding the 'whole' subject, gives more 'substance' and therefore a deeper possible meaning to those scientific 'facts', ideas and opinions. Try ''basket''.


Any missing ingredients?

Leaping / jumping spiders?

That primordial soup is the best foot forward. The best hypothesis we have after all these years. Meanwhile technology has moved forward in leaps and bounds as proven by such advances in D.N.A / Gene technology. Yet no advances have been made in finding or more importantly putting forward an adequate hypothesis as to why we cannot go beyond that ‘soup’. That eternal question again. That nagging yet profound one. Why! Not just why we have not yet found it or why we cannot take it to a ‘second’ stage. Primordial broth? [ Some believe that not even that first step has yet been achieved.’To many cooks? Or too few? ]...but more importantly, why do we accept that eternal answer that all give in response to that same question...

’Lets not worry about it. After all, its just a question of time before we do. We exist do we not. Therefore sooner or later we must/will find that missing link’...The one between animate/inanimate... How many more generations ? Ten/twenty? Before we take a deeper interest. Before we attempt to find a possible answer for ourselves.

'The Missing Link: Reflections on Philosophy and Spirit' / Sydney Banks.

"The chain of life contains a great mystery. According to Biologists, the developmental sequence went something like this: atoms - minerals - crystals - large molecules - amino acids - ? - DNA. But the mystery lies with the question mark. Just how did the leap from amino acids to DNA occur?'' [Douglas Monroe].

A 'leap' of the imagination? Think about in relation to that ''bit''.

'Wheels' of time.

Winged or wingless?

The authors of this final remaining; yet least understood subject; also understand that ‘life exists’. Yet they continue to spend time and effort on the same subject. Each author explaining the same thing in their own way. [Boredom?] That same subject UNbeknown by most individuals is...and always has the past and still in the of the most prolific ‘subjects’ written about. [ illusional?] Generation after generation...year in year compares to anything fiction or otherwise. That same subject that once understood implies what that ‘missing link’ could be. That understanding/ ‘general idea’ by way of concepts and symbols has a certain logic to it. It is that ‘logic’ that makes the subject a viable one. As logic can only do in any subject. And until we in [A] can go beyond that ‘soup’...that logic will always agree with this subject. Whether we like it or not, i.e......

"This life principle, this basic essential of Being, and this mysteries elusive factor is the correspondence in man of that which we call spirit or life in the macrocosm." [Introduction to the book by A. Bailey]. Recall what ''correspondence'' implies.

Gulls Wings. BACK to the future?

A work in progress: "Palazzo Schifanoia is a Renaissance palace in FerraraEmilia-Romagna (Italy) built for the Este family. The name "Schifanoia" is thought to originate from "schivar la noia" meaning literally to "escape from boredom" which describes accurately the original intention of the palazzo and the other villas in close proximity where the Este court relaxed. The highlights of its decorations are the allegorical frescoes with details in tempera by or after Francesco del Cossa and Cosmè Tura, executed ca 1469–70, a unique survival of their time. The palace had its origins in a single-storey structure without wings built for Alberto V d'Este (1385), a small retreat intended solely for suppers and diversions (delizie), as a sort of banqueting house, with an urban front and a garden front. As the equivalent of a Roman villa suburbana, the Palazzo Schifanoia long predated the first such pleasure villa built in Renaissance Rome, the Belvedere built for Nicholas V."


Refresher: "This life principle, this basic essential of Being, and this mysteries elusive factor is the correspondence in man of that which we call spirit or life in the macrocosm." [Introduction to the book by A. Bailey]. Recall what ''correspondence'' implies.

''Beethoven's fifth is morse code for the letter 'V'.....'' ['The Chase'].

Understanding the above, i.e.,what it implies- defines the following..."Thus Arnold Lunn, editor of the book 'Is Evolution Proved', writes that he would certainly like to believe in evolution and accept it as proved, if he could surmount four difficulties, including the following: ...for the fact is that no evolutionist had produced a plausible guess, much less a theory supported by evidence, to suggest how a purely natural process could have evolved, from mud, sand, mists and seas of the primeval planet, the brain that conceived Beethoven's Ninth Symphony and the reactions to the beauty of music, art, and of nature....A reply was given by William S. Beck, author of 'Modern Science and the Natural Life', to the difficulty to which Arnold Lunn draws attention. He says: it seems that the argument against evolution is pure metaphysical brocade, artfully draped so as to obscure the cogent evidence of science."

continued..."Metaphysical brocade or not, it does not matter, the fact of the unintelligibility for human thought of theory [not the facts!] of evolution advanced by science nevertheless remains a fact. It is and always will be unintelligible in so far as it takes consideration of only half of the whole circle of evolution, and refuses to accept the other half of the circle; that of involution [or the 'fall'], which would make it intelligible."

Understanding that universal concept of [as in this instance] the ''divine bit'' in relation to what is implied by the ''fall'' - by what was defined [if only in modern times] as a 'metaphysical' exercise - defines the above. Before those bigger questions are asked. Fact or fiction - a possibility or not? As it does with the following...

if that same 'information' [framework] had been 'discontinued' at the end of say, the Egyptian period, then one could say, that maybe it was just an 'Egyptian' belief system. After all, most people, understand that the Egyptians were into that 'afterlife stuff'. But that same 'information' was then taken over by the Greeks and represented with new 'figure heads' and 'stories', i.e.,Greek Mythology. The Romans do the same. Islam takes it through the 'dark ages' together with a representation of same by stone builders and the 'Romances', that began in Southern France, followed by the 'Mystery clubs' right up to the present date, with so called 'stand up' philosophers. Question. Why? i.e.,when all the available information is assessed by objective analysis, what does Ockhams Razor say?

Side note: "Through the combined efforts of Wilhelm and Jung we have for the first time a way of understanding and appreciating Eastern wisdom which satisfies all sides of our minds. It has been taken out of metaphysics and placed in psychological experience. Stripped of its archaic setting, 'The Secret of the Golden Flower' is the secret of the powers of growth latent in the psyche..." Try ''being'' and/or ''rose'' as a beginning towards an end {'flowering'?}.

"Human experience is the tricky, paradoxical, mysterious and ultimately unpredictable thing that Shakespeare dramatized. Bacon taught human kind to look at the physical objects that are the contents of experience and to note the predictable laws that they obey. He devised new ways of thinking about the contents of experience. He advised the discarding of as many preconceptions as possible while gathering as much data as possible, trying not to impose patterns on it, but waiting patiently for deeper, richer patterns to emerge. This is why in the history of the philosophy of science he is known as the Father of Induction. In short, Bacon realized that if you can observe objects as objectively as possible very different patterns emerge from the ones that give subjective experience its structure. This realization would change the face of the planet." [Chapter 20, page 300, 'The Secret History of the World']. Link to the word and {purpose?} meaning of ''synchronicity''.

''Wise men make more opportunities than they find." [Francis Bacon]. Quote used in the address to the 'Westminster locals' {Oct 2015] by the Chinese President Mr Xi Jinping.

N.B. Both men eventually {in the course of Mr Jinpings visit} went off to the pub - {the middle one went off somewhere else - ball{s?} in hand } - the name of the pub - 'The Plough'. Question. Coincidence or a meaning full one? Only time will tell. Try ''plough''. Then ''Bacon''. Question. Is Mr Jinping 'aware' of something - or attempting to become aware? Anyone whose aim is to eradicate corruption for the greater good - must have an abundance of ''grace'' within. Try that one, i.e.,put those keys together to define something - other than the obvious.

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

A working example: ''Find a ''third force'', that is, ways to reinforce your desire to sustain effort in this Work. Don't let much time go by without feeding that part of yourself that wants to make these efforts. If one does not increase, one will decrease. Christ says: 'He who puts his hand to the plough and looks back is not worthy of the Kingdom.'' ['Wisdom of the 4th Way']. Continued elsewhere.

Analogy {in reverse?}: "He wrought also a fair fallow field, large and thrice ploughed already. Many men were working at the plough with it, turning their oxen to and fro, furrow after furrow. Each time that they turned on reaching the headland a man would come up to them and give them a cup of wine, and they would go back to their furrows looking forward to the time when they should again reach the headland. The part that they had ploughed was dark behind them, so that the field, though it was of gold, still looked as if it were being ploughed - very curious to behold..." ['Homer's Secret Iliad']. Continued / enlarged elsewhere. Try ''wheat''.

Question. ''Headland'' in relation to 'peninsula' ?

A working example: ''Cornwall (/ˈkɔːrnwɔːl, -wəl/;[3] Cornish: Kernow [ˈkɛrnɔʊ]) is a historic county and ceremonial county in South West England. It is recognised as one of the Celtic nations, and is the homeland of the Cornish people. Cornwall is bordered to the north and west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the English Channel, and to the east by the county of Devon, with the River Tamar forming the border between them. Cornwall forms the westernmost part of the South West Peninsula of the island of Great Britain. The southwesternmost point is Land's End and the southernmost Lizard Point.....The ceremonial county of Cornwall also includes the Isles of Scilly, which are administered separately. The administrative centre of Cornwall is Truro, its ONLY city.''

Side note: ''The first dinosaur fossils were recognized in the early 19th century, with the name "dinosaur" (meaning "terrible lizard") being coined by Sir Richard Owen in 1842 to refer to these "great fossil lizards"

And/or: ''The name Tamar (or Tamare) was mentioned by Ptolemy in the second century in his Geography. The name is said to mean "great water."[5][6][7] The Tamar is one of several British rivers whose ancient name is assumed by some to be derived from a prehistoric river word apparently meaning "dark flowing" and which it shares with the River Thames.''

''In science Archimedes is said to have cried out ''i have found it'' after determining the means of finding the purity for GOLD.'' ['Weakest Link' / BBC].

"Eureka" comes from the Ancient Greek word εὕρηκα heúrēka, meaning "I have found (it)", which is the first person singular perfect indicative active of the verb εὑρίσκω heurískō "I find".[1] It is closely related to heuristic, which refers to experience-based techniques for problem-solving, learning, and discovery.''

The Magdala Stone. Found in the 'city' of Mary Magdalene {shadow aspect?}. Oldest thing ever found that relates to the 2nd temple. Around at the time of Christ. Pillars for corners {concave?}. Head of the corner'? Question. Cubit stone for a foundation ? - of non other than the sacred Menorah ''made out of pure gold''. Recall what ''seven'' implies in the overall scheme of things. Question 2. What do 'vases' represent?

Working example: "Walking towards the front entrance to this cathedral, I remembered that the Inca temple that had once stood here had been covered with more than 700 sheets of pure gold and that its spacious courtyard had been planted with ''fields'' of replica corn also fashioned out of gold. I could not help but be reminded of Solomon's temple in far-off Jerusalem, also reputed to have been adorned with 'sheets' of gold and a marvellous orchard of golden 'trees'.

The main point being - such answers can be ''worked'' out simply because of those universal constants - proving - validity of subject material. From the oral tradition up to ....?

Question. What does that imply?

Queen of Punt. 'Fat' of the land?

As seen from a different perspective {i.e., a working example, i.e., something hinted at}: "Not a perfect emerald? Not to worry, Zieglerin would have explained it as part of the process of 'ripening'. The 'idea' that gems and metals 'grow' in the ground from seed was pervasive within alchemy. Where did this idea come from? Proof by analogy, of course. If plants grow from seeds in the ground, and metals/gems are found in the ground, then surely metals/gems 'grow' from seed, too. The alchemists would explain this to the patron - they needed more time - and money - to 'perfect' the process. But the Paracelsian women were not the only ones who were seeking patronage. There was a complementary crop of Paracelsian men, and we are headed off to join them next." ['The Chemistry of Alchemy'].

''Analogy'' - as a means...?

'Division' between N/S? or put another way - spine and head? ''neck'' = middle ground? Fat or 'thin'. Long or 'short'?

"The possibility of making gold has always been used by sages to hoodwink fools, so that the 'children of wisdom' - who cannot be deceived by selfish satisfactions - may be led toward the true path, which is the search for the real vision of the universe. Without the promise of gold, would the texts of master Hermetists have been disseminated, safeguarded, and respected by the ignorant?"

BEIT SHEMESH, Israel — The carved stone block is about the size of an occasional table. It has held its secrets for two millenniums. Whoever engraved its enigmatic symbols was apparently depicting the ancient Jewish temples.
But what makes the stone such a rare find in biblical archaeology, according to scholars, is that when it was carved, the Second Temple still stood in Jerusalem for the carver to see. The stone is a kind of ancient snapshot.
And it is upending some long-held scholarly assumptions about ancient synagogues and their relationship with the Temple, a center of Jewish pilgrimage and considered the holiest place of worship for Jews, during a crucial period, when Judaism was on the cusp of the Christian era.
Known as the Magdala Stone, the block was unearthed in 2009 near the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel, where a resort and center for Christian pilgrims was going to be built. Government archaeologists are routinely called in to check for anything old and important that might be destroyed by a project, and in this case they discovered the well-preserved ruins of a first-century synagogue and began excavating.

The site turned out to be the presumed hometown of Mary Magdalene {'shadow' aspect} - one of Jesus’s most faithful followers. The dig also revealed an ancient marketplace and fishermen’s quarters along with the synagogue.
Experts have raised the tantalizing possibility that Jesus may have taught in the synagogue when he was in Galilee. A local coin found in a side room was minted in A.D. 28, when Jesus is thought to have been alive.

Continued: She has since spent years deciphering and interpreting the symbols that adorn the stone and researching the possible implications of the discovery....the Magdala Stone was found in the center of the old synagogue.....One side of the stone has what experts say is an unusual feature for the time: a carving of a seven-branch menorah. A candelabra of that kind is described in the Bible and is believed to have stood in the Temple, and it emerged as a Jewish symbol of hope for redemption centuries later.....During the annual eight-day festival of Hanukkah, which began on Sunday evening, Jews light a nine-branch menorah to commemorate the rededication of the Second Temple after a successful revolt against the Syrian-Greek Seleucid empire in 165 B.C.

And/or: ''In antiquity, the number eight, was considered interesting....It is the first form {octagon} to serve as the transition from square to the circle, which is important in the construction of domes.....It was regarded as a very lucky number: it was thought that beyond the seven spheres of the planets the eighth sphere, that of the fixed stars, was located. As a 'number of gods' it is found as early as in ancient Babylon...In the Mithriac mysteries one finds a mysterious eighth gate beyond the seven main gates....The Muslims believe there are 7 hells and 8 paradises....The custom of dividing gardens into eight parts carries over from one of the most famous works of medieval Persian literature, 'Sa'di's Gulistan' {Rose garden}, which is divided into 8 chapters....Others = Venus year of 8 months....Eight appears as a second beginning on a higher level...It is the day of purification in the Hebrew tradition....Christ's resurrection took place on the eighth day of the Passion.....Eight is the first purrfect cube {2x2x2}, imprints us in body and soul with the security of eternal beatitude."

[ Page 23 'Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson' / Gurdjieff].

Where have you seen it before?

Continued: According to Ms. Talgam’s interpretation, there are more signs of the Temple to be seen on the stone. Sacred utensils are depicted in the order in which they would have appeared. A square shape below the menorah may represent the sacrificial altar, with large oil and water containers shown on either side. Engraved steps, arches and columns refer to the architecture of the Temple.
The professor suggested that the 12-leaf rosette on top of the stone might have echoed a motif on the veil that divided the Temple’s main sanctuary from the Holy of Holies.

Concave corners as 'pillars' = semi-circle = ''a return to something''.

On the side of the stone that Ms. Talgam believes represents the inner sanctum, the carvings suggest the lower portion of a chariot, with flashes of fire beneath its wheels — possibly illustrating the seat of God residing in the earthly Temple. The upper half, or God himself, she said, would have been in heaven.
Ms. Talgam said the first century was a period of debates within Judaism, a factor she said must be considered in interpreting the stone.
Archaeologists can be no less quarrelsome. “There will be disputes” of her interpretation of the stone, Ms. Talgam said. “But that is the way it should be.”

Where have you seen it before? Define subject material to get as close as possible to a mind set i.e., as ONE example attempt ''new name''.

CROSSROADS OF JEWISH AND CHRISTIAN HIGHWAYS: Magdala is a word of Aramaic origin meaning, “tower,” and most probably referring to a building or structure found on site. Furthermore, Magdala appears to be a name used commonly in antiquity in the region to the point where cities with this name would also have had a “last name.” This would be similar to the usage of the name “Santiago” for cities where a last name would clarify the location of the site such as in, Santiago de “Compostela” or Santiago de “Chile.”
Studies identify Magdala with a city that some Jewish texts called Migdal Nunayya, meaning “Magdala of the fish.” We know that Magdala had a flourishing and popular fishing industry, and we know it may have also been referred in other Jewish texts as Migdala Sab´ayya meaning, Magdala of the dyers.

'Tower' for a crown?

The majority of archaeologists now think that Magdala had its own Greek name: Taricheae. It was very normal in antiquity for cities to have two names, one of Semitic origin and a Greek name. We see examples of this in Bet Shean-Scythopolis, Rakkat-Tiberias, Emmaus-Nicopolis, etc.
Taricheae means “salted,” and would indicate that the city was known for its salting industry to preserve fish, which matches the name, Migdal Nunnaya, meaning Magdala of the fish. Josephus, the famous Jewish historian from the first century who speaks of all the major cities of his time period does not refer to Magdala, but instead to Taricheae, which according to sources suggests to be located in the same location where Magdala is found. Hence, experts today conclude that Taricheae and Magdala are the two names used for the same cities.

What does ''salt'' represent?

''Salt and light''?

El-Tel Bethsai? {Israel}.

From a different perspective: ''Thus that which causes the death of one of the principles gives life to the other, as the initial mercury, the metallic living water, dies so as to provide the dissolved sulphur of the metal, the elements of its resurrection. This is why the ancients have always asserted that the living had to be killed for the dead to be resuscitated... Yet it is this primitive subject of the sages....despised by the ignorant ones, which is the only one, the sole dispenser of the celestial water, our first mercury {'corner stone'?}, and the great Alkahest {i.e., vigor/strength from the inner hearth of energy}. It is the loyal servant and the salt of the earth, what Madame Hillel-Erlanger calls Gilly....The alkahest is the purest mercurial principle which can be removed  either from mercury or from sea salt....''

Two 'triangles' or one cube?

Question. Many wonder why Jerusalem and the surrounding area has been sacred since ancient times. Even before it was claimed by the Hebrews it had always been 'sacred'. Many theories abound. None about the Sea of Galilee - a 'Northern' fresh water lake - the lowest on the planet.

A working example: ''Plato drew openly from a wide variety of philosophical sources, especially the {H}ellenic mysteries and Pythagoreanism, but he brought to these sources a clarity of objective purpose hitherto UNSEEN. The idealism of Plato should not be seen as the beginning of philosophy. It is a product of a millennia-long process of traditional speculation and intellectual inquiry begun at the dawn of Indo-European culture. Among ALL THE LANGUAGES of the world, only the Indo-European and its derivatives has a true verb meaning ''to be'' in the SENSE of ''to exist''. [Page 71 'Lords of the Left-Hand Path' ].

"I remember yet another talk that took place during the same period. Someone asked him about the possibility of a universal language - in what connection i do not remember. 'A universal language is possible', said G., 'only people will never invent it'. 'Why not?' asked one of us. 'First because it was invented a long time ago', answered G.

Refresher: "...This is why we have repeated so many times in these 'Letters' that practical [i.e.,lived] Hermeticism is neither occult science, nor magic, not gnosis, nor mysticism - but rather their synthesis. For it is a 'tree' not a 'tower'. And it is man himself; the whole man - who is at one at the same time philosopher and magician, gnostic and mystic - who is the 'tree'.

Sufi equivalent...Certain Sufi writers seem to think that there is an important difference between this concept of the Oneness of Being and that of the Oneness of Perception [ wahdat al-shuhud ], having regard to a very important tension in human experience between perception and being; subject and object; the knower and the object of knowledge. Ibn al-Arabi, however, in coining the term wahdat al-wujud [Oneness of Being], did not intend to make any distinction but, by choosing the word wujud, to convey the meaning of the Oneness of both Being and Perception in the perfect and complete union of the one and only 'Reality' [al-haqq]. This is because the Arabic root word wajada carries both ideas, that of being and therefore objectivity, and that of perception and therefore subjectivity, both of which he sees as being one in the Reality."

"Contrary to popular belief, the Grail seekers do not set out on their journey with the deliberate intention of healing a perceived disorder within themselves or their world. Their journey is a journey of which they may, or may not, discover the cause of the disease which affects the 'Grail King' and his 'land', and this is by no means apparent to them at the outset. It is simply the power of the 'Grail' which draws them forever onwards: they do not know what it is they seek, or why. In fact, Gawain, one of the grail seekers, does not even intend to look for the grail; he believes himself to be on an entirely different quest and it is only because his 'horse' takes the bit between its teeth that he arrives at the grail castle whether he will or not. As many of those who have found themselves in pursuit of the 'Mysteries' will vouch {synchronistic link?}, this is often the way of things. The impulses of the higher Self will somehow manage to reach through to the personality even though it is deaf and blind." ['Red Tree, White Tree' / W. Berg].

From a different perspective: "A Goidelic alphabet, called Ogham, was used in Britain and Ireland some centuries before the introduction of the Latin A B C . Its invention is credited in the medieval Irish Book of Ballymote to 'Ogma Sun - Face son of Breas' - one of the early gods of Goidels. Ogma, according to Lucian, who wrote in the second century AD, was pictured as a veteran {'old man' link?} Hercules, with club and lion skin, drawing crowds of 'prisoners' along with golden chains connected by their ears {'Sais' ?} to the tip of his tongue {'silence' link?}. The alphabet consisted of 20 letters; 15 consonants and 5 vowels - apparently corresponding to a deaf and dumb finger language." [Page 113 'The White Goddess' / R. Graves].

These invaders brought their language with them with one exception - the consonant q was replaced with p - in the second wave....This hypothesis was disliked by most archaeologists, pointing out that changes in language can often happen without the migration of the people themselves {i.e., the transfer of IDEAS through the daily process of social/buisness gatherings.

"The task of the scholar of esoteric studies is not to prove that such an invisible 'tradition', hidden behind the veil of historic events, did or did not exist; as such; before the Renaissance; rather, the task consists of trying to grasp and to describe the different facets of the emergence of this idea as it appears in the imaginary and the discourses of the last centuries [and/or millenniums.

Analogy of same. Different time, different place. "...I must cite one instance, which may otherwise puzzle the reader of this book. This is the word 'Reflection', which is also spelt 'Reflexion' where the content seems to require it. In Teilhard's philosophy, to which it is vital, the word represents two distinct things, which, however are so intimately connected as to be in effect different aspects of the same thing. Reflection is the power of conscious thought which distinquishes….

To 'reflect' on the inner?

….Man from all other living creatures [the animal that not only knows but knows that it knows]. But the species, Man, also differs biologically, in Teilhard's view, from all other species [or phyla] in that, instead of spreading out fanwise, breaking into sub-species and falling eventually into stagnation, it coils inward upon itself and thus generates new [spiritual] energies and a new form of growth - a process of Reflexion which is part and parcel of Reflection."

Or the quote on the first page of Chapter five, [Master Game] in relation to the word 'Gnosis',[i.e.,'knowledge'] and its relevance to the subject as a whole, especially in relation to to the Egyptian equivalent of the concept of re-ligion, i.e.,Heka [essence of], chapter ten of the same book, i.e.,... "What they understood by heka does not necessarily accord with modern ideas of magic at all and therefore needs to be clearly defined....The type of 'magic' with which we are concerned differs profoundly from astrology which is not necessarily magic at all but a mathematical science based on the belief that human destiny is irrevocably governed by the stars, and that therefore from the study of a persons horoscope, and the position of the stars at the time of birth, one can foretell an irrevocably foreordained future.....


Try ''eclipse'' to ponder on something.

This magic is astrological only in the sense that it to 'bases' itself upon the stars , their images and influences, but it is a way of escaping from astrological determination by gaining power over the 'stars', guiding their influences in the direction which the operator desires. Or in the religious sense, it is a way of salvation, of escape, from material fortune and destiny, or of obtaining insight into the 'divine'."

Or put another way, "In our individual lives and collectively, we go round and round in the circles 'traced' out for us by the planets and stars. But if we can become conscious of these 'circles', if we can become conscious of the activity of the stars and planets in our lives in an 'intimate' way,{i.e.,study and/or 'lucid dreaming'?} then we are in a sense no longer trapped by them. If we are no longer trapped, we are now no longer moving in a 'circle', but in an upward spiral". [Page 146, 'The Secret History of the World'. All emphasis, this readers ].

''...intimate'' in relation to the 'divine bit'?

'Lucid Living' / T. Freke].

Hence: "Magic then {i.e.,heka}, is a mysterious divine force through which the spiritual and physical universe {'co-existence' link? See ''Help'' section} - becomes manifest - and hence a force permeating and linking all levels of reality from the highest to the most material. But it is also - and this is an especially important aspect of the way the ancient Egyptians understood magic - the means by which the human being, and ultimately all creation, returns to the 'Supreme Godhead', the UNmanifest source of all that exists." [Page 127 'Temple of the Cosmos' ].

A {working?} example: "But at the same time, possibilities of evolution exist, and they may be developed in separate individuals with the help of appropriate knowledge and methods. Such development can only take place in the interests of the man himself against, so to speak, the interests and forces of the planetary world {i.e.,what this author defines as ''mechanical''}. The man must understand this: his evolution is necessary only to himself. No one else is interested in it. And no one is obliged or intends to help him. On the contrary, the forces which oppose the evolution of large masses of humanity also oppose the evolution of individual men. A man must outwit them. And one man can outwit them, humanity cannot. You will understand later on that all these obstacles are very useful to a man; if they did not exist they would have to be created intentionally, because it is by overcoming obstacles that man develops those qualities he needs. This is the basis of the correct view of human evolution. There is no compulsory, mechanical evolution. Evolution is the result of conscious struggle..." ['In Search of the Miraculous' / P. D. Ouspensky]. Try ''struggle''.

We can control matter by applying higher forces. The laws of nature are constant, and we cant escape them. We can however overcome the laws by applying 'higher' ones. The universe and its laws and phenomena are real, so far as humans are concerned. The universe is also ever changing and transitory, so its unreal in the absolute sense. However we must live and act as if the fleeting Universe and matter were real. In the material world, Mentalism, the power of your thought, is the greatest natural force."

The author Israel Regardie, of the 'Philosophers Stone' defines that same principle as ''libido'' ] inside all creatures, as an animating force, heka can also be understood as the means by which what is spiritual becomes physically manifest . Heka governs the circulation of energy between the inner and outer worlds, and so could be thought of as making the link [ bridge] between the spiritual and material levels". Think about it... in the context of an 'understanding', within that acclaimed framework, in relation to cause and effect. [Emphasis this readers. Chapter seven. "The Future of the Ancient World".

Side note {something extra}: "Later, Philemon became relativized by the emergence of yet another figure, whom I called Ka. In ancient Egypt the 'kings Ka' was his 'earthly' form , the embodied soul. In my fantasy, the ka-soul came from below, out of the earth as if out of a deep shaft {Osiris shaft?}. I did a painting of him, showing him in his earth bound form, as a herm with a base of stone and upper part of bronze. High up in the painting appears a kingfishers wing, and between it and the head of Ka floats a round glowing nebula of stars....Philemon had a lame foot....{with the wings of a kingfisher}. He was a winged spirit....In time I was able to integrate both figures through the study of alchemy." [Pages 207-210 'Memories, Dreams and Reflections' / C. G. Jung].

Try ''kingfisher'' for a further connection to other cultures in order to attempt a MIND SET. A universal one.

"But, beyond the physical and beyond the psyche is the spiritual world, the world of spirit, 'spiritus' in Latin, 'pnenma' in Greek and 'atman' in Sanskrit. That 'Spirit' though separate from matter and soul is yet interwoven in the whole structure. So we have body, soul and spirit. Now this takes us back to the early Christian concept that man is body, soul and spirit. It is found in St. Paul, in the letter to the Thessalonians, and in St. Irenaeus and in Origen amongst the early fathers. After that it faded out, but these early Christians had a much more integrated view of humanity. Man is an integrated whole of body, soul and spirit, not a body separated from mind, with 'god' somehow separated from all. I would like to support this with a theory which i discovered about 50 years ago when i was studying English Literature and which i have never forgotten. I give it to you for what it is worth, but it changed my whole outlook on life...

Krishna's butterball, 6 m (20 ft) high, 5 m (16 ft) wide, weighs around 250 tonnes, granite boulder, view from SE. Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu, India

...It came from a book called 'Poetic Diction' by Owen Barfield, a friend of my friend, C. S. Lewis. He had made a study of words as a literary critic. He took the word 'spirit' and pointed out that in most languages that one word 'spiritus' can mean wind or air or breath or life or soul or spirit. It has six distinct meanings. What Owen Barfield said was this: in the beginning words contained all of these meanings; they had not been separated out. The word 'spiritus' meant wind and air and breath and life and soul and spirit. And then gradually men began to make different words to distinguish the wind from the air, from the breath, and from life. But primitive languages, and Sanskrit is the perfect example, are immensely rich. Often one does not know exactly what a word means, because it can mean many things. This is very relevant for the Vedas, because the Vedas have many prayers for cattle and horses, and butter or wealth etc. The early European commentators always looked upon this as a very materialistic religion, but Sri Aurobindo, whom i consider the greatest philosopher of modern India, in his book on the Vedas made it clear that all these words have a psychological as well as a physical meaning. In certain texts it is absolutely obvious. So that this ''butter'' for instance, which comes from the cow, this gleaming 'butter' with all its richness, is also the 'butter' of the mind. The mind produces this butter of 'thought' and so the same word can mean butter and thought. The same is true of other words. Everything has a physical; a psychological; and spiritual being.......A very good example is 'fire'..."[First chapter 'The Cosmic Revelation' by Bede Griffith]. Put ''butter' in the box.

A working example: ''After a while these two mutually stimulating sensations gave way suddenly to a peaceful inner state such as i experienced in later life only once, when the ceremony of the 'great initiation' into the brotherhood of 'the makers of butter from air' was performed over me.''

SIDE NOTE: Mahabalipuram is known especially for its rathas (temples in the form of chariots), mandapas (cave sanctuaries), giant open-air reliefs such as the famous 'Descent of the Ganges' . ALL of the 'chariots' are UNFINISHED. And a large 'crack' can be seen on Shiva's Nandi Bull - on the rear end {'tail' end} just as it is with the Sphinx. Both also in resting positions. Join the dots to decipher those keys. ['Treasures of the Indus: Of Gods and Men' / S1 EP3 / BBC]. 'Fissure' to enlarge.

And/or: ''Rouen is known for its Rouen Cathedral, with its Tour de Beurre (butter tower) financed by the sale of indulgences for the consumption of butter during Lent.''

Side note: Many questions raised concerning an ancient 'henge' {at least 2400BC} discovered at Woodbridge in Suffolk S/E England. All within a once large hill - but since - flattened {decommissioned?}. Large circular ditch with walkway inside made of birch and oak. Animal parts found inside mainly of jaw and pelvic area {ie., ''head and tail'' ends, i.e., womb}. Spring water prevalent throughout ''running down throughout the structure to the creek below''. Large platform on top of hill. {'Horizon' link? i.e., ''line of sight'' - in the spiritual sense of the word}. Parts {skull} of large female cow found {auroch} also on top. ''Milk'' and ''butter'' mentioned in relation to the 'tool' found alongside - ''its a wooden spatula used for butter and milk churning''. ['Digging for Britain'. Series 7. Episode 3].

Spirit/Soul. Fire/ a means....?

Define a mind set to get beyond ''ritual ceremony''. i.e., what could be seen on top of that ''platform'' - another 'henge' within that locality or some constellation and planets. The 'foundation' of something? Try ''calf'' to take something further.

His back to us? Question. How can Rigel be his left foot? Cross-legged? 'Turnaround' to enlarge.

Side note: ''Son of Man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him. And say: Thus says god, 'behold i am against thee O Gog, and i will turn ye back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and i will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses, and horseman, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour....all handling swords {therefore 'fire' link}: Persia, Ethiopia and Libya with them....'' [Ezekiel 38 taken from the book 'GogMagog' / T. Lethbridge].

Side note: ''Because all his predecessors were too busy in wars with Chalukyas and there was little time to focus on building or carving temples. After Rajasimha's death, there was anarchy like the situation with political instability and that may explain why most of Mahabalipuram's monoliths are unfinished.''

''May explain''.....?

Flat top? End of a 'process' ? Therefore the beginning of something else? Foundation? ''Tower of the Fish''? All Enlarged elsewhere. 'Spirit' or 'Soul' ? As a means...?

And/or: "Ancient, however, are such terms as Ash and the Bier; Plaustrum, and Triones - this splendid constellation ran still further back - three or four or even more millenniums before even these titles were current - as the Bulls Thighs, or the Fore Shank, in Egypt. There it was presented at Denderah and in the temple of Edfu by a single thigh or hind quarter of the animal..." [Page 434 'Star Names and Their Meaning'].

''The tibia (/ˈtɪbiə/; pl. tibiae /ˈtɪbii/ or tibias), also known as the shinbone or shankbone, is the larger, stronger, and anterior (frontal) of the two bones in the leg below the knee in vertebrates (the other being the fibula, behind and to the outside of the tibia); it connects the knee with the ankle.''

The Egyptian symbol for 'gold'. Supports the cartouch

And/or: LEG bones {tibia?} found in the tomb of Nefertari {Ramses II wife} when first entered in 1905. Alongside reed sandals and a cartouche belonging to the Pharaoh Ay, blue in colour with 'copper salts'..''

Continued: "The appropriateness of creating fire by friction on actual wood should be born in mind. Although a flame might with efficiency be produced with a gas lighter it is not immediately 'fitting'. In all of this, it is not meticulous rules that we seek to provide, but a developed sense of symbolic appropriateness. We seek efficient function that is a clear expression of a spiritual intention within consciousness." [Extract from the book by G. Knight]. Enlarged elsewhere. Try Part 3.

'Fire' in relation to something internal. 'Light' in relation to external {i.e.,illumination} . Tropic of Capricorn/Cancer?

Side note: As seen from a different perspective: ''Concentration without effort is 'burning' without smoke or crackling fire...The Gnostic sense begins to operate when it is a matter of a new dimension in the act of knowledge - namely that of depth. '' within the book 'Meditations on the Tarot'.

Still waters?

Living water?

And/or: ''Perhaps because she does not trust her intuition, her head is torn from her shoulders, and she dies to her old way of life. Her spiritual knowledge is not gained without a price. But Thoth, the god of wisdom and the controller of the cycles of time, heals her by placing on her shoulders the head of the celestial cow....'' [Page 121 'Dreams of Isis' / N. Ellis].

'On the shoulders of giants'?
