Esotericism Part 3 Sec 01




shell2The Mexican Indians symbolized the same; in part; with two other key words ‘Conch’ shell and ‘Thread / Knot’ symbolism. A pink conch shell became symbolic of that ‘origin’. While the sound it can make is a link to the potential of becoming aware of something, as well as its origins, i.e., 'water' link. Especially salt water. Recall what 'it' represents. 'Pearls' also associated with same. One a 'beginning' the other an end. An 'end' result. Alpha and Omega, represented in a different 'form'. [Introduction, 'The Tutankhamun Prophecies'. Mentioned elsewhere].

N.B. Persevere with it - regardless of how basic? or simple? or 'child' - ish? it first appears.

{Working?} example..."As we slowly made the long drive to Coba, we had - after so many surprises - given up our expectations. Childlike, we brought with us now only open hearts and open eyes. We were simply waiting for 'god' {synchronistic link} to show us our next 'responsibility'." ['Serpent of Light Beyond 2012'. Emphasis, this readers]. 'Story' {method?} enlarged elsewhere. Follow the book title to see if you agree or not.

''In the beginning was the word; and the 'word' was..."

"...Too meditate is to deepen; it is to go to the heart of things." [Extract from the book by Tomberg. 'Letter 21' ]. One could apply same principle - to the study of something / anything.

''The pink-footed goose is well-known for its loud, honking call that it often performs while flying in a flock, or 'skein'; look out for the characteristic V-formation that so many migrating birds use.''



"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.

As one example: ''Grey - Valour of the Mighty Grasp, a name well suited to the gatekeeper as 'Old Wise Man'. Glewlwyd Gafaelfawr is a well known figure in Welsh Arthurian tradition, and appears in other tales.'' [Page 240 'Fruits of the Moon Tree' / J. Layard].

'Mighty conch's' blown on ''the holy plain, on the field of Kuru'', who were ''gathered together eager for battle''. [ 'First Discourse' of the book 'The Bhagavad Gita' {The Lord's Song, i.e., higher over lower or at least; with that potential 'in sight'}.

A ''gathering together'' as in the artefacts found in Tut's tomb. The 'golden child'.


'Shadow' in relation to S/W?

"The voice of truth in a person that has not yet awakened to spiritual life, is the ''still small voice'' { a ''golden'' one?} that may be felt in the heart, listened to by the imperfect; as a half conscious dreamer may listen to the ringing of bells in the distance; but in those that have become conscious of life, that have passed through the first 'resurrection' of the spirit in their own heart, and received the baptism of the first initiation, administered by themselves, the voice of the new born 'ego' has no uncertain sound, but becomes the powerful Word of the 'Master'. [Emphasis this readers. Chapter 1, from the book by F. Hartman]. Link to the word ''teacher'', of 'Dead Sea Scroll' fame. Enlarged elsewhere.


'Pearl of Great Price'?

Male or female aspect? Nefertiti?

Find it to understand it - rather than leave to those first impressions.

"The word 'spiritual' should be associated with the word 'eyes'. This is a reference to the eyes of the mind or heart. To see is to understand." [From the book by T. Nottingham].

'Waters of the Gap' ?

A working example: {i.e., Hypothesis about Tut's tomb in relation to}:

Distaff creation?


"The Gospel of Nicodemus, a text appended to the Acts of Pilate, provides additional details about Joseph. For instance, after Joseph asked Pilate for the body of the Christ and prepared the body with Nicodemus' help, Christ's body was delivered to a new tomb that Joseph had built for himself. In the Gospel of Nicodemus, the Jewish elders express anger at Joseph for burying the body of Christ, saying: And likewise Joseph also stepped out and said to them: ''Why are you angry against me because I begged the body of Jesus? Behold, I have put him in my new tomb, wrapping in clean linen; and I have rolled a stone to the door of the tomb. And you have acted not well against the just man, because you have not repented of crucifying him, but also have pierced him with a spear."— Gospel of Nicodemus. Translated by Alexander Walker.

N.B. ''Pontius Pilate became Roman governor of Judea in 26AD.''

And/or: "The Wandering Jew is a mythical immortal man whose legend began to spread in Europe in the 13th century.[a] In the original legend, a Jew who taunted Jesus on the way to the Crucifixion was then cursed to walk the Earth until the Second Coming. The exact nature of the wanderer's indiscretion varies in different versions of the tale, as do aspects of his character; sometimes he is said to be a shoemaker or other tradesman, while sometimes he is the doorman at the estate of Pontius Pilate."

"The 'Spear Side' is a reference to the male side of a family. Distaff the female side.'' ['The Chase' / ITV / 25.2.22].

Refresher: ''It was said that a spear standing upright at the tomb of Christ would cast no shadow at midday, because it marked the center point of everything under the sun...."

Norfolk: Spear points? S/E -N/W?

''The name for the Ash in Old English, aesc, as well as its Latin name, fraxinus, both mean ''spear,'' and ash was the favourite choice of the Celts for making spear shafts - a primary weapon in the Iron Age due to the branches strength and straightness {anima?}. These spears were often carefully engraved, and many were named, considered treasures handed down through generations. Spears traditionally were considered female objects, hence Oengus's description of ash as ''the boast of women,'' {animus?} alluding to the prowess of spears in battle....Or Cuchulain reference ''the weavers beam'' as is it referred to in the battle of Moytura. And/or: Morainn's reference to it as ''the establishing {or checking} of peace testifies to its status as a primary weapon. Ash is usually sacred to the god Lugh for its masculune solar enery as well as its associations with justice. The ash had special significance in Ireland {Vikings}. Their were five sacred special living trees in Ireland that, like Yggdrasil, were probably understood as World Trees.'' [Page 82 'Celtic Tree Magic: Ogham Lore and Druid Mysteries' / D. Forest].

''We are not given an ego because we are supposed to starve it to death. We are given an ego to learn to bring it into balance, to master it. In many cases, ego represents identity: It gives it a separateness, a form that is essential to function in this plane. We have difficulty understanding the concept that we are all one. If we were the true embodiment of that concept, there wouldn't be any lessons to be experienced. The ego gives us the identity to experience the lesson in terms of a very specific viewpoint - ours. Its as if we look at the situation through a very specific window. The frame of the window is our ego. It gives us the form to look through {from a very acute perspective} that aspect of that problem. It's very much like there is a horizon, and then there is the vista of the entire universe. The ego becomes a periscope from which we see very specific aspects of that universe. Take, for instance, a high jumper. The high jumper needs to go over the top bar. The bar is there so the high jumper can jump over it. It becomes the obstacle, and jumping over it { 'void'? } becomes the reward. We are given an ego. The reward comes when we are able to let it go and see the bigger picture..." [From the book by E. Pearl. Mentioned elsewhere].

Question. Horus in/of the horizon?

Recall the animals at the base of those 'T' shaped pillars at Gobekli-tepe.

Gibson Thunderbird. The 'rarest' on the planet. "A legendary tone. Came out in 1963. Its a neck-through-body. All in one piece. They clue the wings on afterwards. Giving it lots of resonance and thumping low end tone. Of the natural wood finish type, only three left in existence....Kind of cool to see one - like a unicorn - very rare." [Wolf Navarro Guitars].

"...but Plutarch mentions that in the driving off of Typhon use was made of the sistrum of Isis. The sistrum was a musical instrument made rather like a rattle. There was a hollow ball which contained four ''things,'' which rattled when it was shaken. These ''things'' are said to represent the four elements ...Plutarch writes: ''The sistrum also shows that existent things must be 'shaken up' and never have cessation from impulse, but as it were be wakened up and agitated when they fall asleep and die away. For they say they turn aside and beat off Typhon with sisra..." [Chapter 13, 'Woman's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Put ''Typhon'' in the box. Then try ''sleep.'' [Part one].

And/or: ''The sistrum also indicates that the things which exist should be shaken and should never stop moving....For they say that with the sistrum they repel and ward off Typhon, meaning that when decay confines and restricts nature, the power of creation sets her free, and restores her by means of movement.''[Page 57 'Hathor Rising'].


Analogy?: ''The terms 'stopping' and 'seeing' basically cannot be seperated. They mean concentration and insight.'' [Page 21 'The Secret of the Golden Flower' / T. Cleary].

Cancer or Capricorn?

Lunar mansion or just Solar?

Side note: ''Eratosthenes knew it as the Goat-Footed Pan, half fishified, Smyth said, by his plunge into the Nile in a panic at the approach of  the monster Typhon; the same story told of Bacchus, so that he, too, was associated with its stars...Platonists held that the souls {Ba?} of men, when released from corporeity, ascended to heaven through its stars {'lunar' ones?}, whence it was called the Gate of the Gods; their road of descent having been through Cancer. But some Orientals knew it as the Southern Gate of the Sun....It has always been regarded in astrology as the Mansion of the Kings {Per-wer?}...An early Babylonian gem, had it surmounted, not inappropriately, by the crescent moon, for Capricorn was a nocturnal seen on a fragment of a Babylonian planisphere {12 century BC}....Jewish Rabbis asserted that the tribe of Nephtali adopted this sign as their banner emblem: 'Nephtali is a hind let loose' - as if Capricorn was a deer or antelope {ibex}...It was shown at Denderah in its 'double form' as an ibis headed man riding on Capricorn, under which sign Sirius rose anti-heliacally...It was much favoured by the Arabians - Lunar mansions assigned, as the names/characters for its chief stars....It was regarded as under the care of the goddess Vesta....'' [135-139 'Star Names Their Lore and Meaning' / R. Allen].

'Uas' Sceptre?

A {working?} example..."After the ceremony Vina - who had loaned her rattle to Davlin for the peyote songs and knew nothing of what had happened in my meditation shortly before the ceremony - said that Devlin had appeared to her after the ceremony and asked her to give her rattle to me." ['Serpent of Light Beyond 2012']. The 'whole' story has to be understood to define the importance of the ''rattle''. Enlarged elsewhere.


Try 'flint'.

"And my eyes saw the secrets of lightening and thunder, the secrets of clouds and of the dew...I saw the chambers out of which come the 'Sun' and the 'Moon' and where they go." ['Third Book of Enoch]. Recall what the 'sun / moon' are symbolic of. What they represent.

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

Egyptian Min {or the Roman Pan}: ''Whose arm is raised in the East.'' Lightening strike? i.e., From the tip of the fingers to the tip of the phallus - in a two 'step' form. Below the 'navel' = active i.e., manifested. Above the navel = UNmanifested - represented with the colour black. But with a latent positive potential within it - represented with the colour red. 'See' it? Horus IN/OF the Horizon to enlarge.

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

"It is he who doth show you The Lightening, by way, of both fear and hope. It is he who doth raise up the clouds, heavy with fertilizing rain." [Quran 13:12].

Question. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

What does 'water' represent?

A working example: ''Year 2, second month of the inundation, day 15. Horus: Lord of the Two Lands, Two Ladies: Lord of the Two Lands, Gods of Gold: King of Upper and Lower Egypt, Nebtawyra, Son of Ra, Mentuhotep, who lives forever. My majesty sent the prince, mayor of the city, vizier, chief of royal works, royal favourite, Amenemhat, with a troop 10000 men from the southern nomes of Upper Egypt, and from the {garrisons} of Thebes, in order to bring me a precious block of the pure stone of this mountain, whose excellence was made by Min, for the land of life, who recalls eternity even more than the monuments in the temples of Upper Egypt, as a mission of the king who rules the Two Lands, so as to bring him his hearts desire from the desert lands of his father Min. He made it as his monument to his father Min of Coptos, lord of desert lands, ruler of Bowmen {'nine'?} that he may give many {Jubilees} and to live like Ra forever.'' {Stela: From Deir el-Medina, depicting the Syrian goddess Qadesh, who became the consort of Min in Eighteen{th} Dynasty}.

''Possible turtle people emerging from a horizontal crack.''

And/or: ''Sand comes in every colour. The Black sand in Hawaii and Santorini has volcanic minerals mixed into it. Bermuda's  pink beaches get their colour from the red and pink shells of tiny marine creatures....On the Rainbow Beach of Australia, sand appears in more than seventy colours. It can come from a variety of sources, including the poop of the parrotfish, which eat algae and dead coral and excrete hundreds of tonnes of sand each year. Most sand comes from granulated rocks that streams carry to the sea....Sandpaper, paint, silicon chips made from it as well as concrete, brick and glass. Depending on what's in it, sand must be heated to 1700 centigrade to become glass. The oldest {and fastest} glassmaker is lightening. When a bolt strikes dry sand, it instantly melts and fuses the sand into hollow branching glass tubes called fulgurites. Not all sand is suitable for building....Meanwhile larger animals such as turtles lay their eggs in sand....German writer Eta Hoffmann's 1816 short story 'Der Sandmann' popularised the myth about the creature who sprinkles sand in our eyes while we sleep....induces sweet dreams - hence the lyrics to the 1954 song by The Chordettes: 'Mr Sandman, bring me a dream....''

''The Dream Stele, also called the Sphinx Stele, is an epigraphic stele erected between the front paws of the Great Sphinx of Giza by the ancient Egyptian pharaoh Thutmose IV in the first year of the king's reign, 1401 BC, during the 18th Dynasty.''

And/or: ''Knowledge is a responsibility which compels, and i will not render myself in any wise unworthy of that Princely Crown of the Rosy Cross. He did not therefore name OPENLY the certain substance which he understood as First Matter, that vessel like unto 'a little simple shell,' or the Glass of his mystery. When he compares the radiant body of adeptship to the shining face of Moses descending from Horeb, he feels he has 'touched the veil' and must draw back.'' [Introduction: 'The Works of Thomas Vaughan' / Eugenius Philalethes].

"For his wedding with Juno (Hera), Jupiter (Zeus) ordered Mercurius (Hermes) to invite all the gods, the men and the animals to the wedding. Everyone invited by Mercurius (Hermes) came, except for Chelone {mountain nymph}....

who did not deign to be there, mocking the wedding. When Mercurius noticed her absence, he went back down to the earth, threw in the river the house of Chelone that was standing over the river and changed Chelone into an animal that would bear her name. Chelone is said testudo (tortoise) in Latin."

Side note: "Archaeologists in Iraq have unearthed twin temples built on top of each other. The newer, Hellenistic temple dates to the fourth century B.C. and may have a link to Alexander the Great. The temple contained a fired brick with an Aramaic and Greek inscription that references "the giver of two brothers" — a possible reference to the Macedonian king, who conquered much of the known world during his 13-year-reign from 336 B.C. to 323 B.C.

While exploring the dual temple site, archaeologists discovered a silver drachm (an ancient Greek coin) buried beneath an altar or shrine, as well as a brick with the two brothers inscription.

'Handle' on the moment?

"The inscription is very interesting because it mentions an enigmatic Babylonian name written in Greek and Aramaic," Rey said. "The name 'Adadnadinakhe,' which means 'Adad, the giver of brothers,' was clearly chosen as a ceremonial title on account of its archaizing tone and symbolic connotations. All the evidence points to the fact that the name was extraordinarily rare." ['Live Science' / Dec. 2023].

Refresher: ''The Sphinx is to fire as the Sibyl is to soul."

And/or: "Hadad (Ugaritic𐎅𐎄 Haddu), HaddadAdad (Akkadian𒀭𒅎 DIM, pronounced as Adād), or Iškur (Sumerian) was the storm and rain god in the Canaanite and ancient Mesopotamian religions. He was attested in Ebla as "Hadda" in c. 2500 BCE.[1][2] From the Levant, Hadad was introduced to Mesopotamia by the Amorites, where he became known as the Akkadian (Assyrian-Babylonian) god Adad."

Drachma: a former monetary unit of Greece, notionally equal to 100 lepta, replaced in 2002 by the euro.

"In ancient Greece the drachma was an ancient currency unit issued by many city-states during a period of ten centuries, from the Archaic period throughout the Classical period, the Hellenistic period up to the Roman period. The ancient drachma originated in the Greece around the 6th century BC.[1] The coin, usually made of silver or sometimes gold[2] had its origins in a bartering system that referred to a drachma as a handful of wooden spits or arrows.[3] The drachma was unique to each city state that minted them, and were sometimes circulated all over the Mediterranean.[4] The coinage of Athens was considered to be the strongest and became the most popular."

Rule of thumb?


"The name drachma is derived from the verb δράσσομαι (drássomai, "(I) grasp").[n 2] It is believed that the same word with the meaning of "handful" or "handle" is found in Linear B tablets of the Mycenean Pylos.[7][n 3] Initially a drachma was a fistful (a "grasp") of six oboloí or obeloí (metal sticks, literally "spits") originally used for roasting lamb.[3] With anthropological evidence it is believed that the oboloi were used as a form of early currency, beginning around 1100 BC and being a form of "bullion": bronze, copper, or iron ingots denominated by weight in a developed barter system.[3] The earliest of these obeloi were found in Palaepahos, Cyprus in a Geometric grave. Anthropological evidence suggests that obeloi were used in burials of warrior elite or in the grave's of people with high social status."

Any handles?

Best foot forward.

Side note: "6th and 7th century in S/E Britain is a fascinating period, we see a distinctive culture emerging and wonder how much of that influence is from abroad or home grown. And  where we see that culture best is in graves, because the burial rites at that time was to inter people  fully clothed with their jewellery and other objects {'Digging For Britain' / S9 EP1}.......

On the S/E coast of Britain {Kent} - on its TIP -  Saxons, Angles and Jutes arrive after the departure of the Romans. In Deal more than eighty graves found.....

The monument was surrounded by a ring ditch 32m in diameter, 3.5m-wide, and 1.7m deep, and its first phase included the interment of crouched burials, some accompanied by distinctive Beaker vessels, inside this enclosed area. One of these was the skeleton of a 12-year-old boy who had been placed in a crouched position at the very centre of the site, together with two beakers. Dr Andrew Richardson, director of Isle Heritage CIC and an expert on Anglo-Saxon cemeteries in Kent, said the ‘Beaker-era monument’ sits within ‘a wider prehistoric funerary landscape’ on the ridge at Mill Hill, but the site also contains burials from the late 6th to late 7th centuries which ‘span the period of the Christian conversion.’

Wednesday's child.

'Three and four'.

According to traditions established by the chronicler Bede (c.673-735), while much of England was settled by Angles and Saxons, Kent was settled by the Jutes. Archaeological evidence presents a more nuanced picture, however, reflecting a fusion of southern Scandinavian and Merovingian Frankish influences, as well as Romano-British traditions.

Most of the later burials were found outside the ring ditch, but inside the prehistoric enclosure the archaeologists found the c.AD 550 grave of a warrior who is thought to have died in battle because ‘the front of his skull was smashed in’ and his shield had been used to cover his face, said Tim. His grave goods included a ring sword featuring a garnet in its hilt, and a bronze bucket with two horse motifs. He had been laid to rest alongside a horse and a wolf size dog, found in a large pit next to the main grave. This is ‘arguably the highest-status male-gendered Anglo-Saxon burial to come out of Kent in the 21st century’, said Andrew.

Another unusual find from the site was a set of scales, complete with ‘intricately decorated weights’, Tim said. Andrew explained that a comparable set had been found in Dover at Buckland cemetery in 1994. ‘I’m hoping that by comparing this new find with that set and others that have been found we can get more of an insight into the standard weights and measures that were being used in this period,’ Andrew said."

'Sixes and sevens'?

And/or: "When they came to the place called Golgotha, which means the place of the skull, they crucified him there. And when crucified they divided his garments among them by casting lots....So Jesus is stripped of his garments. Clothing gives man social position. It gives him a place in society. It makes him someone. His public stripping means he is no longer anything at all. A public outcast, despised by all alike. The moment of the stripping reminds us of the expulsion from paradise. Gods splendour has fallen away from mankind, who now stands naked and exposed. He takes on the condition of fallen man. Stripped of his garments he reminds us that we have all lost the FIRST garment that has gods splendour. At the foot of the cross the soldiers drew lots. Writers use Psalm twentytwo: '

In this parable, a woman sweeps her dark house looking for a lost coin (engraving by John Everett Millais).

And/or: The Parable of the Lost Coin is one of the parables of Jesus. It appears in Luke 15:8–10. In it, a woman searches for a lost coin, finds it, and rejoices. It is a member of a trilogy on redemption that Jesus tells after the Pharisees and religious leaders accuse Him of welcoming and eating with "sinners."[1] The other two are the Parable of the Lost Sheep, and the Parable of the Lost Son or Prodigal Son. As recounted in Luke 15, a woman with ten silver coins (Greek drachmae) loses one. She then lights an oil lamp and sweeps her house until she finds it, rejoicing when she does:

Or what woman, if she had ten drachma coins, if she lost one drachma coin, wouldn't light a lamp, sweep the house, and seek diligently until she found it? When she has found it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, saying, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found the drachma which I had lost.' Even so, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner repenting."

The bonfire was lit, an oatmeal pancake was baked {more than likely from 'the last sheaf of the previous harvest'}, and no matter how much care was taken in the baking of it, a blackened portion resembling the mark of a huge thumb appeared. The cake was broken into pieces and placed in a bag, and the onlookers had to draw out a piece, one portion to each person while the pieces lasted.

Up or down stream?



Flat top = 'right' eye = physical world? What would 'left' eye be represented with? All as a means....?

Forwards or backwards?

As seen from a different perspective: "But aspiration is not enough on its own. Aspiration alone can be but wish fulfilment fantasy unless we have the will and ability to bring it to realization and fulfilment. This is implied by the transverse path across our way; its symbol - the Lightening - struck Tower. Aspiration alone might be regarded as our being enclosed in an ivory tower, and many are there {within this subject} who remain in this condition. High on great thoughts but low on practical achievement. If we are to progress to be responsible servers of the 'higher' powers in the Temple of Tiphareth - 'the sphere of the god made Manifest, in the sphere of the mind' - then we have to be prepared for the lightening flash of illumination, or the lightening flash of destruction of false values. This may come to us as a shock, but it also a form of enlightenment..." Enlarged elsewhere.


''Thinking/feeling/willing'' -All a means...?




Natures 'tower' ?

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

"....since women played the leading role in the Dionysus cult. It was expressly added that the priestesses of Dionysus were the successors of the daughters of Semachos {i.e., foreign 'hero' - who is speculated to be the originator of the said 'cult' - from a 'mining' region 'S/E' Attica}. Another version mentions only one daughter, who received a 'deer skin' {nebris} from a god as a present. This was more than the gift of a special type of garment. It indicates the bestowal of a rite in consequence of which the deer skin could be worn: nebri-zein also means the rending of an animal. The cult action in which the sacrificial animal was dismembered, however, required at least two persons..."

That is known to to many a philosopher; many a chemist; many a doctor; many a reverend; many a worthy man - knows the sound of our trumpet." Taken from the chapter headed: 'The Sound of the Trumpet: The Original Intention of the So-Called Rosicrucian Manifestos'. [Extract from the book 'The Magister'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Refresher {a working example?}:"...Because a modern man lives in 'sleep' {unknown/unaware link}, what knowledge therefore can a sleeping man have? And if you think about it and at the same time remember that sleep is the chief feature of our being, it will at once become clear to you that if a man really wants knowledge, he must first of all think about how to wake, that is, about how to change his being..." ['In Search of the Miraculous'. Parenthesis, emphasis, this readers].

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

"We will now examine a number of perspectives on the 'Rosicrucian manifestos' - regarding the original intention behind their writings and publication...the manifestos represent a test - in its truest forms of both challenge and measurement - of the time in which they were composed. This 'test' - a word whose etymology means a vessel in which metals were assayed, similar to Latin root, 'testa': ''pot'' {'Jars'?} or ''shell'' - is indeed such a shell in which a critical examination was carried out on the consciousness of the age. Not only are the manifestos loaded with metaphors - of light and dark, of loins and eagles, of night and dawn, of chalices, fountains, vipers and asses - they are in themselves a meta-metaphor in which there is 'the right, simple, easy and ingenious exposition, understanding, declaration, and knowledge of all secrets'. " [Same book]. ''Cauldron''?

From a different perspective [i.e.,''angle'']..."It is also fascinating to note that in Egyptian mythology, the Bennu birds cry is believed to have started the great cycles of time. These cycles were said to be appointed by a 'Divine' intelligence....and Horus the 'Bennu bird', became the Egyptian deity associated with the division of time. There is a strong possibility that the main unit of time represented by the Bennu's cry is the Precession of the Eqinoxes...." [Chapter three. 'The Source Field Investigations'. Mentioned elsewhere]. One of the paragraphs relate more so to ''bottom/up'' the other to ''top/down'' as a means to a 'method' of understanding.

A work in progress: "The tomb of Phillip II {who ruled for "24" years} was found in the modern Greek village of Vergina, the site of Aigai. Objects from the tomb included an ivory head {bedpost}, a gold wreath with myrtle leaves and flowers; a gold quiver cover; a gold larnax, or ossuary, decorated with a sunburst {'SIXTEEN' pointed} or star likely containing Phillips remains; and a gold ornament of the gorgon Medusa." ['Archaeology' / May-June 2024].

A 'working' example: "I will add only one more thing: Time is breath, try to understand this."...Later on one of G.'s Moscow pupils added to this that, speaking with them once of cosmoses and of different time in different cosmoses, G. had said that the sleep and waking of living beings and plants, that is, twentyfour hours or a day and night, constitute the 'breath of organic life'."

Together with..."This religion [Minoan] was dominated by a great 'goddess', who, despite her many names, can be identified as essentially one deity, being a 'complex' of all that is feminine, or the feminine principle itself. She was seen as the 'mother' of all creation, and hence her nature is all embracing, even to the point of containing all opposites. Since in mythopoeic thinking, the 'part may stand for the whole', she is the omphalos, the navel of the universe, whose mound like shape is the worlds womb, and whose spiral umbilical means not only the turn towards death, but the counter turn towards rebirth. She represents the constant principle in the flux of being, which is ever changing, yet ever the same, of the circle of eternal return." [Chapter two. 'The Riddle of the Sphinx'. C. Herberger].

''Why lies the mighty dragon here, let him who knoweth tell. With its head to the land, and its huge tail near the shore of the fair loch Nell?" [page 259. Douglas Monroe]. ''gnashing of teeth''?

Seated on what?

The symbol given above, as well as usage of the word 'circling' within the passage itself, gives weight to the idea that perhaps the 'Bluestar' also symbolized the spiral path of life {birth-rebirth}, due to the natural tendency of the vine to spiral and climb around anything in its path. It is therefore suggested that the recitation be coupled with a spiral movement of the head and upper body {from a seated position}, which begins slowly in a small clockwise motion, builds to a large swaying circle, then recedes back on itself counter clockwise." [Page 55 '21 Lessons of Merlyn: A Study in Druid Magic and Lore'].

Now from a different perspective: "In Dante's vision the masculine intellect, even at its highest and most poetic or 'magical' levels, can only go so far in the comprehension of reality, and that is to the external limits of the Earthly paradise. Therefore when Dante having traversed the deepest pits of Hell, and climbed the spiral path of Mount Purgatory, comes to the brook that circumscribes the Garden of Eden, he is able to go no further under 'Virgils' guidance. Virgil can only return to limbo, the noble but love-less state of the intellect, that can only see the world on its own terms and within its own limitations. To go further the force of 'love' is necessary {Nefertiti?}. This force is embodied by Beatrice, who expresses...[From the book by G. Knight. Emphasis, this readers]. Try ''grace''.

Alaric the 1st. King of the Visigoths. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

''During the early months of 411, while on his northward return journey through Italy, Alaric took ill and died at Consentia in Bruttium. His cause of death was likely fever, and his body was, according to legend, buried under the riverbed of the Busento in accordance with the pagan practices of the Visigothic people. The stream was temporarily turned aside from its course while the grave was dug, wherein the Gothic chief and some of his most precious spoils were interred. When the work was finished, the river was turned back into its usual channel and the captives by whose hands the labour had been accomplished were put to death that none might learn their secret.''

Known for its flat lowlands.....The county town is the city of Norwich.''

Continued: "Of course, this has to do with how one views the creation; what is exactly meant with ''creator'' and/or ''creation''. The way I see it today, the ONE mirrors itself in millions of forms, in an un believable variety. Every form and image, each facet and sound lives this uniqueness, with the knowledge within that it is only a reflection of the ONE. Because of this, I think it is wonderful to discover and live one's own being, without being identified with it. There is nothing else but THAT, the ONE. And each human being has the right to live his being, to allow HER particular fragrance to unfold as part of the whole." [Page 37 ' The Path has No Name' / Annette Kaiser].

'Spring' waters / 'Flood' waters as a means....? Which and Why?

From a different perspective {that first one?}: ".....Previously, a ram {Aries?} had been thrown into the water as a sacrifice to Pylaochos - the 'guardian of the gate'. The lake of Lerna, situated between the limestone mountains {'stalagmites'?} of Lerna, whose flanks had been inhabited since Neolithic times, and the sea - was fed by many springs, which characterised it as belonging to the 'underworld'.....Dionysos disappeared for a time into the underworld, and ever since his 'cult' came to this 'coast' {boundaries/cycles link?} the ''disappearance'' was enacted in a ceremony in which a 'young bull' {lower aspect mastered? and/or Taurus link?} was sacrificed....The gods descent and return from the waters of Lerna was interpreted as a journey to bring back his 'mother' from the realm of the dead. In connection with this interpretation, there is a strange tale to the effect that Dionysos paid a high price for his journey to the 'underworld' in the lake of Lerna {fresh water?}- total 'effeminization' - and that after his return he set up a phallus as a cult symbol {something mastered/understood? - represented from the 'lower' regions?}...."

This experience led me to notice the fundamental relationship between Greek gematria and Pythagorean theory of Means.

Think about it, not just in relation to a 'direction' but the significance of what 'navel' represents, within same, relative to 'positive/negative.' Final link to Artemis. Explained within. This subject clarifies and verifies that 'possibility'. Think about it, in relation to Horizontal / Vertical symbolism, together with what; as in the Egyptian case; Horus represents, within those 'units of time', [explained within]. That link to the 'development' of same over those 'units of time' [i.e., as an example; as in the Egyptian case; between the first and third uraeus, in relation to the rest of the acclaimed 'framework'] that allows the possibility of an understanding in explaining those 'synchronistic' moments that take place in relation to the individual effort, and... those simultaneous discoveries of human innovations ["that appear in different peoples minds simultaneously"], in relation to the collective one, as speculated in chapter four of 'The Source Field Investigations'. Sometimes we all need one in order to have that flash, [ lightening ]...of inspiration. In order to begin that understanding of something new. A kick up the proverbial spinal column, regardless of whether it be a synchronistic 'event' or otherwise.

SIDE NOTE: {a working example?}: "Through Christ, there can enter into the winter cold {S/W?} of knowledge a warmth which in no way obscures or corrupts it, but gives it life; and into the stormy creative chaos of the instinctive life {Cernunnos?} - he brings a light {S/E?} which does not lame it {S/W?} but purifies and redeems it."

S/E or N/W as a 'start' point?

Egyptian equivalent?..."A third characteristic of the Pharaonic mentality is an appreciation of simultaneity. This is expressed in various ritual representations - encountered chiefly in the temples - by the superimposition in a single image of several points of view and moments of time. The Falcon hovering over the king is a typical example: its head is in profile; one of its wings is represented as seen from above; the other wing and the tail are seen from below. What at first seems to be a frozen moment of flight thus actually represents several moments of flight seen together." [Extract from the book by L. Lamy. Emphasis - this readers].

Thus I found, that there are psychic parallelisms which cannot be related to each other causally, but which must stand in another sort of CONNECTEDNESS.

Apply the above to define the following..."Adrian Gilbert, who was previously mentioned, has written several books on the subject of ancient knowledge and esoteric wisdom. In his book 'Signs in the Sky' he noted that the term 'serpent' was frequently used in ancient times to define a shadow cast by the sun. I couldn't help remembering that the Celtic cross in Northamptonshire shows an image of intertwined serpents on the circular head.

A work in progress: ''With the constellation representing the mythological Greek huntsman Orion, Rigel is his knee or (as its name suggests) foot; with the nearby star Beta Eridani marking Orion's footstool.[27] Rigel is presumably the star known as "Aurvandil's toe" in Norse mythology.[76] In the Caribbean, Rigel represented the severed leg of the folkloric figure Trois Rois, himself represented by the three stars of Orion's Belt. The leg had been severed with a cutlass by the maiden Bįhi (Sirius).[77] The Lacandon people of southern Mexico knew it as tunsel ("little woodpecker").[78]

A 'green one'?

Rigel was known as Yerrerdet-kurrk to the Wotjobaluk koori of southeastern Australia, and held to be the mother-in-law of Totyerguil (Altair). The distance between them signified the taboo preventing a man from approaching his mother-in-law {'line of sight' or AFAR?}. The indigenous Boorong people of northwestern Victoria named Rigel as Collowgullouric Warepil.[80] The Wardaman people of northern Australia know Rigel as the Red Kangaroo Leader Unumburrgu and chief conductor of ceremonies in a songline when Orion is high in the sky. Eridanus, the river, marks a line of stars in the sky leading to it, and the other stars of Orion are his ceremonial tools and entourage. Betelgeuse is Ya-jungin "Owl Eyes Flicking", watching the ceremonies.[81]

The Māori people of New Zealand named Rigel as Puanga, said to be a daughter of Rehua (Antares), the chief of all-stars.[82] Its heliacal rising presages the appearance of Matariki (the Pleiades) in the dawn sky, marking the Māori New Year in late May or early June. The Moriori people of the Chatham Islands, as well as some Maori groups in New Zealand, mark the start of their New Year with Rigel rather than the Pleiades.[83] Puaka is a southern name variant used in the South Island.[84]

In Japan, the Minamoto or Genji clan chose Rigel and its white color as its symbol, calling the star Genji-boshi (源氏星), while the Taira or Heike clan adopted Betelgeuse and its RED color. The two powerful families fought the Genpei War; the stars were seen as facing off against each other and kept apart only by the three stars of Orion's Belt.

The habitual imperfections are the imperfect habits and affections which have remained all the time in the spirit, and are like roots, to which the purgation of sense has been unable to penetrate. The difference between the purgation of these and that of the other kind is the difference between the root and the branch, or between the removing of a stain which is fresh and one which is old {'hoary'?}, and of long standing. For, as we said, the purgation of sense is only the entrance and beginning of contemplation {or study}, leading to the purgation of the spirit, which, as we have likewise said, serves rather to accomodate sense TO spirit than to unite spirit with god. But there still remain in the spirit the stains of the old man, although the spirit thinks not that this is so, neither can it perceive them; if these stains be not removed with the SOAP and strong lye of the purgation of this night, the spirit will be unable to come to the purity of Divine union.''

The singers of dithyrambs who appeared that day at the Altar of the Twelve gods on the Agora {zodiac/'higher' link} must also have been chewing leaves! For the first time we glimpse such a chorus on an Attic krater {vessel for mixing water/wine - often seen in a room on a tripod - and used at funerary functions} of the 5th century. The vase painting represents 'four' men whose names are indicated, all wearing 'long garments'. The poet Phrynichos and a flute player are in the middle. They are characterised by branches {tree link} or wreaths of ivy, and since they do not wear masks or theatrical costumes it seems probable that they are singing no other Dionysian song than the dithyramb. The strange structure consisting of a long pole and a crossbeam {perch/bench link?} around which they are grouped is also carried on an Attic chous by 'children' acting out the 'marriage' procession of Dionysos....

Manger: "to eat" or "to chew."

This same structure appears again much later in representations of the myth of Dionysos childhood. This object can only be explained as a vestige of the Dionysian idol, which after the 'thigh' {below?} birth was replaced by the god in mobile, dynamic forms {'static' link?}. In the dithyramb the god is sung to as one who has just been 'born' after a long childbirth." [Pages 304/5 'Dionysos' / C. Kerenyi].

Side note: "Dithyramb, choral song in honour of the wine god Dionysus. The form was known as early as the 7th century BC in Greece, where an improvised lyric was sung by banqueters under the leadership of a man who, according to the poet Archilochus, was “wit-stricken by the thunderbolt of wine.” It was contrasted with the more sober paean, sung in honour of Apollo. The word’s etymology is uncertain, although, like other words that end in amb, it seems to be of pre-Hellenic origin.

And/or: Sack is an antiquated wine term referring to white fortified wine imported from mainland Spain or the Canary Islands.

'Glass' of wine or water?

The dithyramb began to achieve literary distinction about 600 BC, when, according to the Greek historian Herodotus, the poet Arion composed works of this type, named the genre, and formally presented them at Corinth. In the last decades of the 6th century BC in Athens, during the tyranny of Peisistratus, a dithyrambic competition was officially introduced into the Great Dionysia by the poet Lasus of Hermione. Dithyrambs were also performed at other festivals. The performance of dithyrambs was grandiose and spectacular: after a prologue spoken by the group’s leader, two choruses in expensive apparel—one of 50 men and the other of 50 boys—sang and performed circle dances around the altar of Dionysus. Auloi (wind instruments with double reeds) provided the instrumental accompaniment."

"The Manger - looking north west. The Manger is a strangely shaped valley, which is thought to have been formed by the melting of ice in the last Ice Age.

Continued: "To put the Dilly song into a true context within the folk-song and folk-lore, a new method of interpretation is needed. The archetypal of the song is an exposition of the Divine Universe through various stages {simultaneous?} of manifestation. Once this simple fact has been realized, it is easy to understand why varying faiths all have versions of their own, each apparently deriving from early forms which have in common a 'mystical' concept."

nile delta‘Thread / Weaving’ terms became symbolic of the overall framework. 'Arachne Rising'. By J.

'The Heart of the Hunter' by Laurens Van der Post.

"The no-mans land between Physics and the psychology of the Unconscious [is] the most fascinating yet the darkest hunting ground of our times." Carl Jung.

That familiar subject again. Question. Why?

"There may well be useful parallels to be drawn between analytical psychology and magic, one with its approach to the Unconscious, the other to the Anima Mundi or the 'astral light', but such terms are not necessarily completely interchangeable. We must be beware of substituting one set of ill-understood and inadequate terms for another set - thinking that we are gaining great wisdom thereby. [Extract from the book by G. Knight].

"At Sais is found the 'tomb' of Him whom i hesitate to name...About these Mysteries, all of which, without exception, are known to me, may my lips maintain a religious silence. [Quote by Herodotus ].

"...To penetrate the mysteries of the forces that lie beyond physical life there are the two avenues that we discussed at the beginning of this book. One is the attempt to go on beyond death into the 'earth' or the tomb. The other is to attempt to get back to conditions before birth via woman or the womb. In terms of the symbolism of the circled cross {enlarged elsewhere} - this may be expressed by placing gateways at North and South. To be within physical incarnation is to be in the Western half of the circle. Then the two gateways form two alternative ways of penetrating the Eastern, inner half. The northern gateway leads through the 'tomb' {S/W? and/or 'unconscious'?}. The southern gateway back through the 'womb' {S/E? and/or 'conscious'?}. As we have said, the primitive techniques for this were blood and sacrifice and orgiastic rites but neither of these methods are valid means of spiritual progress nowadays. The evolution of consciousness has moved on and such practices would be atavistic; degrading rather than enlightening. There is a third way, and that is the approach to the 'center' - the center of the spiral. That is, to the mid-point of the web {'net' link?} of creation. Here may be found a very ancient feminine symbol of the spider who spins and designs {''pattern" link} and builds the 'web' of MANIFESTATION. The symbol is also found in Rosicrucian literature."

Gemini and Taurus will always mark the northern 'gate' of the Milky Way and Sagittarius and Scorpio will always mark the southern 'gate' of the Milky Way. Of the two, however, it is the later pairing that is the most important, because it so happens that the part of the Milky Way seen through this gate as we look up at the night sky forms the very center and heart of our galaxy..." {+ black hole and dark rift links}.

Find more information on that ''southern gate'' to see what this author is still attempting.

Refresher: "To sacrifice a 'lower' value to a 'higher' value is to give substance and power to the desire which has been 'sacrificed'. If this higher value is of a 'spiritual' order, the spiritual power is attracted by this desire, and givers to the sacrificer a power of domination over his lower states." ['Journey into the Light'].

''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."

Other artefact's very similar to the 'mini-me' ball also found, i.e., local/Orkney/''other places in Scotland''. Alice Robert asks 'what are they?' Answer given: "Many hypothesis - could have been used as weapons...but more likely 'weapons of social exclusion', i.e., members of the elite {who could afford a boat} making long journeys - showing off their power" The final analysis being ''a prop to their power''.

''The Bulford KiwiCoordinates: 51°11′38.84″N 1°42′54.20″W is a large depiction of a kiwi, carved in the chalk on Beacon Hill above the military town of Bulford on Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, England. It was created in 1919 by soldiers of the New Zealand Expeditionary Force who were awaiting repatriation following the end of First World War.''

"In fact, the nickname is affectionate and being called a Kiwi is a point of pride for most New Zealanders. The nickname 'Kiwi' comes from the small flightless bird native to New Zealand.

Egyptian Ostrich?

"If you travel to Aotearoa, you must be careful when using the word kiwi, since there they use it with three different meanings. A dry kiwi is a person who was born in New Zealand, a kiwi bird is a bird that is also used as a national symbol and, of course, there is the kiwi fruit to refer to the delicious fruit!"

''The silver fern is both native to, and a national symbol of New Zealand.'' ['Tipping Point'].

''What are ferns? Ferns are an ancient type of plant, dating back more than 360 million years. They don't produce flowers or seeds, but spores instead. They are prized for their attractive leaves, or fronds, which typically unfurl from crosiers (tightly coiled buds) in the centre of the plant....Ferns are a natural inhabitant of shady areas, most commonly found where they will get at least some sun during part of the day or where they will receive dappled sunlight most of the day. In fact most ferns will not grow that well in real dense shade, they need a bit of sun to grow their best....Some species of Ferns release spores that can cause poisoning through oral ingestion. The spores can contain toxins which endanger the health of humans and animals. The severity of the toxic effect depends on the type. The ill effects in people can range from nausea to cardiac issues.''

A work in pogress: ''CT scans of the mummy of a fifteen year old boy, nicknamed the Golden Boy, have revealed fortynine {'49'} hidden amulets within his wrappings. Many of the amulets are made of gold, including a golden tongue inside the mouth, a golden heart scarab inside the thoracic cavity, and a two finger amulet next to his penis. Originally discovered in Edfu....mummified to a high standard indicating high social status {'Nobles'?}. He was wrapped in good quality linen, wearing a gilded mummy mask and sandals, and covered with garlands of ferns.'' [Page 6 'Ancient Egypt' / May-June 2023].

''Spores are most conspicuous in the non-seed-bearing plants, including liverworts, hornworts, mosses, and ferns. In these lower plants, as in fungi, the spores function much like seeds. In general, the parent plant sheds the spores locally; the spore-generating organs are frequently located on the undersides of leaves.''

And/or: ''While digging beneath the transept of Paris' Notre Dame Cathedral - two lead sarcophagi found.The first was sealed in a masonry tomb at the threshold of the cathedral's choir....'three' bronze medals on top of the coffin. Belonged to an individual in his 'eighties' {83}. The other was found west of the transept: 'The coffins contours sharply follow the shape of the head, shoulders and hips {'spear point'?}. Belonged to an individual of around 'thirty'. Had ridden horses from an early age. He was embalmed, his thorax opened and the top of his skull cut off {'flat' / 'gap'?} - indicating high nobility.''

Something to ponder on: "The last meals of Tollund and Grauballe man had both consumed a coarse and inedible cereal full of flower seeds, and this implies that they MAY have been sacrifices made by a community on the edge of desperate famine. The grain in Lindow Man's pancake bore little resemblance to theirs, for it contained fewer contaminants and was finely ground and of high quality. It gave no evidence of famine. Careful examination of the gut contents did reveal, though, that very small quantities of charred heather leaves and UNcharred  leaves and shoots of sphagnum moss were mixed in with the grain. Either the heather had slipped into the last meal accidentally, through its use as a FUEL, or it had been introduced deliberately as part of the ceremony....

V shape? Window piIlar between. Lake either side. 'Finger' directions = west-east?

Likewise, it was improbable that the sphagnum moss was a chance contaminant - the garrote was so tightly bound that nothing could have worked its way down his gullet once tightened. It must therefore have been consumed well before death as part of a carefully orchestrated and supervised ritual.....

'Triangle'? Tomb or womb?

The most puzzling contaminants of the 'last meal' were a number of fine animal hairs mixed in with the grain...."

''Orchestrated'' in relation to:

"In Greek mythologyOrpheus (/ˈɔːrfəs, ˈɔːrfjuːs/Ancient Greek: Ὀρφεύς, classical pronunciation: [or.pʰeú̯s]) was a Thracian bard, legendary musician and prophet. He was also a renowned poet and, according to the legend, travelled with Jason and the Argonauts in search of the Golden Fleece, and even descended into the underworld of Hades, to recover his lost wife Eurydice.[1]

Ancient Greek authors such as Strabo and Plutarch note Orpheus's Thracian origins. The major stories about him are centered on his ability to charm all living things and even stones with his music (the usual scene in Orpheus mosaics), his attempt to retrieve his wife Eurydice from the underworld, and his death at the hands of the maenads of Dionysus, who got tired of his mourning for his late wife Eurydice."

''Visitors to the old yew tree can also visit Fortingall Church and stroll down the main street of this picturesque. Look out for the single, time worn cairn in the field opposite the village, known as Cairn of the Dead.''


''Fortingall is a small village in highland Perthshire, Scotland, in Glen Lyon. Its nearest sizable neighbours are Aberfeldy and Kenmore. Its Gaelic name is Fartairchill, which may be translated as something like: "Escarpment Church", i.e. "church at the foot of an escarpment or steep slope. Local legend claims that it was the birthplace of Pontius Pilate, although he was born well before the Roman conquest and became famous in the biblical account of Jesus's death 30 years before the Romans first reached this part of Scotland....It is the main focus for the villages Samhain festival. Other sites include the Fortingall stone circle, standing stones including the Bridge of Lyon,  "


Side note: "Pontius Pilate[b] (LatinPontius PilatusGreekΠόντιος ΠιλᾶτοςPontios Pilatos) was the fifth governor of the Roman province of Judaea, serving under Emperor Tiberius from 26/27 to 36/37 AD. He is best known for being the official who presided over the trial of Jesus and ultimately ordered his crucifixion. Pilate's importance in Christianity is underscored by his prominent place in both the Apostles' and Nicene Creeds. Because the gospels portray Pilate as reluctant to execute Jesus, the Ethiopian Church believes that Pilate became a Christian and venerates him as both a martyr and a saint, a belief which is historically shared by the Coptic Church,[7] with a feast day on 19 or 25 June, respectively."

''Khenti-Amentiu, also Khentiamenti, Khenti-Amenti, Kenti-Amentiu and many other spellings, is an ancient Egyptian deity whose name was also used as a title for Osiris and Anubis. The name means "Foremost of the Westerners" or "Chief of the Westerners", where "Westerners" refers to the dead.[1]

Khenti-Amentiu was depicted as a jackal-headed deity at Abydos in Upper Egypt, who stood guard over the city of the dead. Khenti-Amentiu is attested early at Abydos, perhaps even earlier than the unification of Egypt at the start of the Early Dynastic Period (c. 3100–2686 BC).'' [Wiki].

'Birds' in a southern constellation.

Side note: " The Egyptian Bennu is a bird. In the age of the pyramids it was represented as a yellow wagtail, but it later came very much like a heron with red legs, and two long feathers growing from its head {recall the kingfisher and its link to Motmot. Enlarged elsewhere}. Its name comes from the verb 'to shine' or to 'rise brilliantly'. A papyrus of the 21st dynasty says of the Bennu that it is 'the one who came into being by itself'. It symbolizes the anticipated rebirth of the soul in the Underworld and was carved onto the backs {embossed?} of scarab amulets buried with mummified bodies. This ensures that the heart does not fail the test of the deceased's past deeds in the Judgement hall of the Two Truths. It is also a symbol of the sun god Ra, celebrating the sun's rebirth each dawn. According to legend, the Bennu arises from a burning tree {bush?}, singing such a melodious song that the god's are transported by its sound. Its legend informs the legend of the Phoenix, as related by Herodotus who visited Egypt in the 5th century BC. He wrote of the sacred bird of Heliopolis {N/E?} which, every 500 years, carries its dead predecessor from Arabia to the sun god's temple..." ['The Element Encyclopedia of Magical Creatures' / J. and C. Matthews]. Question. Why Arabia?

Side note: ''The name Aztec is derived from Aztlán (variously translated as “White Land,” “Land of White Herons,” or “Place of Herons”), an allusion to their origins, probably in northwestern Mexico.'' [Wiki].

''American Chicano political activists and poorly informed historians like to mention a place called Aztlan as the primordial founding city of the Toltecs and Aztatecas. But there never was an Aztlan in Nahuatl mythology. It was called Aztatlan. On Mexico's West coast, there is an Aztatlan, Nayarit. The Sanskrit word Asta means 'Place of the Setting Sun' or Westernmost Extreme or Boundary'. Could Aztatlan be the westernmost boundary of what was once Atlantis? Additionally, the Aztec's were never Aztecas, but Aztatecas. Again, Asta means 'Westernmost Extreme Boundary'. Aztateca = 'Westerner.'

Yet this time is particularly radiant, a deep illumination beginning in the tenth hour called 'She who illuminates the heavenly water, who cools the steering OAR,' and rising for the god Heka {'magic'}. According to the tenth hour hymn, this is when Re enters the night boat for crossing into the West, and curiously, immediately after the departure from the Field of Reeds, three torchbearers, shown in the register above the boat, light the way, including a figure named 'He Who Makes Redness', the colour associated with North and its fiery tutelary deity, the serpent goddess Wadjet. As the boat sets sail upon the western waters, everything now shines in the redness he creates.'' [Page 30 ' Hathors Alchemy' / Alison Roberts].

Continued: "The reason is that each religion or philosophy that comes into the world is a Benjamin of humanity and insures its own life by 'destroying' its mother. It is because the symbolic serpent turns ever devouring its own tail; it is because, an essential condition of existence, a void, is necessary to every plenitude, space for every dimension, an affirmation for each negation: herein is the eternal realization of the phoenix allegory." ['Transcendental Magic' by E. Levi].

'Waters of the Gap' ?

A work in progress: ''The ancient Egyptians called the 'Chapter of Becoming a Divine Hawk', one of the most important - that appeared in the Book of the Dead. It describes the Egyptians idea of the effects of the soul's release after death: Thou shalt change into a living ba...and thou shalt take shape as a heron or swallow, as a falcon or a bittern, whichever thou pleaseth. Thou shall cross in the ferryboat and shall not turn back, thou shalt sail on the waters of the flood, and start afresh.....''

As i strolled along Boulder Greek {grey'?}, my head was filled with the text, and i said to myself, 'What i need is a sign, a single image to sustain me for the day'. The late afternoon sun was streaming {'zenith'?} through the canopy of willows and overhead sycamores {'dappling'?}....Then in a moment i saw HIM, no more than a few feet away - my first blue heron....He held himself on one leg balanced on a rock.....With wings spread wide he disappeared into the dimming light of the setting sun at the rim of the mountains. I went home and wrote about the bennu. I did not have to think very hard about it. To the ancient Egyptians the bennu or phoenix, was the messenger of god. It was the herald of all worlds, the source of all life and 'divine' possibility.'' [Pages 242-5 'Dreams of Isis'].

''In the ancient Egyptian pantheon of colours yellow has been considered a substitute for gold, the material associated with the sun and the eternal skin of the gods....The discovery of orpiment and realgar on multiple types of objects continued with archaeological finds from the Amarna period through to the Ptolemaic Period. Usually occuring together, orpiment and realgar crystals would have to be seperated to create the pigments of golden yellow and red/red-orange. Both are toxic arsenic sulphides that must be handled carefully to prevent poisoning.

Beyond this antechamber lay another, smaller, room filled with equally magnificent treasures. It took the archaeological team 2 1/2 months to carefully clear and catalogue the items in these two rooms. Finally, Carter was ready to break through a fourth sealed door into what he believed would be King Tut's tomb - the holy of holies where the pharaoh would be found in his golden casket.

Chapters entitled the 'Three Ms' within the book 'Cities of Dreams: When 'Women' Ruled the World' by S. Gooch. Those three 'Ms' that the author relates to the mythology of Maidens, Mazes and the Moon. All relevant to the 'feminine' principle.

"{M}ary {M}agdalene: One of the female disciples of Jesus who 'discovered' his resurrection and declared it to the disciples hiding in the 'Upper' room. The loyalty and special place of Mary M. is of so an impressive a character that it has been passed into folklore - often to the extent of making her Christ's physical consort." [Page 178 'The Western Way'. Vol 2].


"Is it a coincidence that the words Mary and moon, and also mother, all happen to begin with 'm', and that the sign for Virgo is the same letter? In many lands around the world the word for mother begins with 'm' because, it has been suggested, this is the first consonantal 'noise' which a baby makes." [Same book]. Think about it, relative to what 'virgin' and 'child' represent - all the way back to the oral tradition.

Refresher: "In the Ageless Wisdom there has always been the knowledge that the Life-Breath presents itself to human consciousness in a five-fold manner."

“Khamsa” means “five” a number which is said to guard against evil. The hand’s five fingers also allude to the Five Pillars of Islam. In Judaism, the five fingers are said to represent the five books of the Torah. The five fingers are also a reminder that one must use all five senses in praise of God."

Something extra: something that can be used to work something else out: "Aleph is the first of the three {M}other letters in the Hebrew Alphabet. It corresponds to the element 'Air'. In our opinion it corresponds also to the planet Hershel or Uranus, but we do not offer this correspondence upon any other authority than our own studies of the astrological influence of Uranus...."

I shall, however, mention the 'oculus'. This is the eye, which is still found painted on the bows of ships all over Europe and Asia. In ancient Egypt it apparently ensured the presence and 'protection' of the sun; but this appears to have changed to the eye of Isis....With the coming of Christianity many of these 'eyes' were changed to the 'Stella Maris' of the Virgin Mary. Some, however, would maintain that the word Mary is really related to the Ma of the Great Mother and thus Magog....The Pictish crown also descended from the feminine line. Here the oculus survives strongly on the bows of boats." [Pages 123/126 'GogMagog'].

A variety of experience!'' [Douglas Monroe].

Continued: "Like all M-type giants and supergiants, Antares is close to the end of its lifetime. Someday soon (astronomically speaking), it will effectively run out of fuel and collapse. The resulting infall of its enormous mass – some 15-18 times the mass of our sun – will cause an immense supernova explosion, ultimately leaving a tiny neutron star or possibly a black hole. This explosion, which could be tomorrow or millions of years from now, will be spectacular as seen from Earth, but we are far enough away that there likely is no danger to our planet." [].

Side note: ''The name Beehive {i.e., Praesaepe - the heart of the Crab in Cancer} - derives from the appearance of a swarm of stars in a dance of activity. There are at least 40 stars in the cluster that are visible to the naked eye as a cloudy patch, its 1.5 degree size is equivalent to three full moons end-to-end. In ancient times this cluster often served to predict the weather; if not crystal clear inclement weather might be on the way. Pliny said, “If Praesaepe is not visible in a clear sky it is a presage of a violent storm”.

With us it is the well-known Beehive, but its history as such I have not been able to learn, although it undoubtedly is a recent designation, for nowhere is it [named] Apiarium

Scientifically it was the (Greek) Nephelion, or Little Cloud, of Hipparchos; the (Greek) Achlus (Achlus), or Little Mist, of  the Greek astronomer Aratus, circa 270 B.C.; the (Greek) Nepheloeides, Cloudy One, (Greek) Sustrophe (“a twisting together“), or Whirling Cloud, and (Latin) Nubilum, literally a Cloudy Sky, of the 17th century German astronomer Bayer; {p.113} but the Almagests and astronomers generally of the 16th and 17th centuries referred to it as the Nebula, and Nebulosa, in pectore Cancri, for before the invention of the telescope this was the only universally recognized nebula, its components not being separately distinguishable by ordinary vision. But it seems to have been strangely regarded as three nebulous objects. Galileo, of course, was the first to resolve it, and wrote in the Nuncius Sidereus

“The nebula called Praesepe, which is not one star, only, but a mass of more than forty small stars. I have noticed thirty stars, besides the Aselli.”

Popularly it also is the Manger, or Crib, the Phatne (a crib or manger from Greek pateomai “to eat”) of  the Greek astronomer Aratus, circa 270 B.C., and Eratosthenes; the Phatnes of the second-century Greek astronomer Ptolemy; and with the Latins, Praesaepe, Praesaepes...''

silenceContinued: As seen from a different perspective {'angle'}..."In Tantric Yoga there are a great deal of Sanscrit words, ending with the letter 'M' which are known as Bijas. A Bija has its own meaning as a word, but its meditational use is non-rational. It is the sound, the particular vibratory effect, which is important. In the chanting of Bijas, the terminal 'M' is, as it were, held back {rather in the manner of the English 'NG' ending} and made to resonate within. Its effects are psycho-physical and act upon the nervous system, certain resonated sounds being stimulating and others being pacifying. Some are regarded as positively dangerous, and a Bija is 'fitted' to a pupil by his guru. The pupil will try out the vibratory effect of a number of Bijas, choose the one most helpful to him, and after a little while he will chant it silently. This is an exercise of the imagination, when its power too induce interior silence is profound. The nervous system, once trained to respond to the resonance of a Bija, brings the body into a deep silence..." [From the book by A. Duncan].

Alchemy equivalent? {i.e.,indicative of.}: "Zosimos refers to Mary {i.e.,'Mary the Jew'} as the 'Transmitter of the Art'." ['The Chemistry of Alchemy'].

"In the old Indian civilization the idea of Unity prevailed. Those magnificent scriptures of the primeval East which we now possess, were handed down for long ages only by word of mouth, the Veda - or Word; and from them we know how man felt himself entirely united with the spiritual origin of his existence. The three vowels of the sacred Word were experienced differently: as A, O, U, and they culminated in a fourth sound, M, which signifies silence - the closing of the mouth...In head, heart, and breath {thinking/feeling/willing?} - the ancient Indian, though aware that these held for him a 'triad' of experiences, felt himself completely identified with the Earth, the Sun, the sun impregnated atmosphere. He looked toward the Self with reverted insight, i.e.,outwards into the cosmic whole - seeking 'deathlessness'. " ['The Flaming Door'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"Reverted" in relation to an 'about turn' of something?


Little and large?

"The importance of OM {pronounced AUM} - the primal 'word', can be traced through the teachings of Plato, the Greek Stoic philosophers and Philo the Jew to St. John, the author of the 4th Gospel in the New Testament, who writes, 'In the beginning was the word. The word was with god etc..."Om implies no special divine attributes and refers to no particular picture of god. It is a universal and non-specific name for the ultimate 'power' of life, and is often used as a symbol to represent the Hindu faith. It is a natural and complete sound, a primal 'word' - a word beyond meaning, just as 'god' is truly an idea beyond intellectual understanding.." [From the book 'World Mysticism'. Mentioned elsewhere.

It is however, a 'centering' in, rather than a wandering in the labyrinthine fields of intellectual speculation, that is the direct way of truth. The 'rose' blooms at the center of the cross {animate/inanimate?}. 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. To this end we can hardly do better than to survey the body of images that are presented in the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

In Semitic language an 'm' before the root of a verb forms what we would call a past participle: Egypt is the country built according to a geometric plan. The Egyptians expressed this idea by calling their land To- Mera, "the land of the mr." The word 'mr' is used to refer to the pyramids, but more specifically it refers to the meridian triangle of a pyramid, whose hypotenuse is the apothem.

"Melancholia has been a popular topic in the western world for centuries. The term was coined by an ancient Greek physician, Hippocrates, and means “black bile.” When someone has a mood that is low, they can have more black bile. It is connected to sadness or depression. There is still a lot of debate on whether or not to treat this condition. Some people think that the person should be able to get better without help. But other people think they need to get treatment. Do not feel bad if you sometimes feel sad or happy. Moreover, everyone has these feelings. Sometimes we feel sad. These feelings may happen because our brain reacts differently than it does to other things."

Additional information? : "The human headed vase was called Imset, {as part of the 'four sons of Horus'} - and contained the liver...The name Imset is related to the production by the liver of 'set', the separating fire of the god Set, the bile. The word for liver is 'miset' or 'merset' usually written with the sign 'Mr', which represents a canal or reservoir; and of course the liver is the reservoir of the ''water of Set'', the bile, which it canalizes into the gallbladder. Thence the bile runs into the small intestine, where it makes possible the separation of subtle and coarse, of pure and impure. The symbol of the human head shows the two aspects of the 'liver'; in its psychic role it is the seat of the Personality, whose innate and inherited characteristics are engraved in it. Second, this indicates the mutual reaction of the brain and liver whenever the Personality receives a 'shock'. The Egyptians also said that ''Imset leads his brethren'' and that he ''makes green'' {rwd, meaning to grow, to vegetate}. By its separative action the bile creates the chyle, which is the basic nourishment of vegetative life. Imset ''leads his brethren'' {'brother'?} who are the other animal functions, because he is the seat of the personal impulses which can direct or thwart the animal instincts...The liver is the seat of the subconscious personality, the 'Automaton', but also of the Permanent Witness." ['The Opening of the Way' / Page 195].

''Electrum is a naturally occurring alloy of gold and silver, with trace amounts of copper and other metals. The ancient Greeks called it "gold" or "white gold", as opposed to "refined gold". Its colour ranges from pale to bright yellow, depending on the proportions of gold and silver. It has been produced artificially, and is also known as "green gold".'' [Wiki].

Refresher: ''When the sperm drop falls into the womb, it represents the First Substance. When the embryo has four strata, it represents the elements and the natures. When the members appear, the outward members like the head, the hands, the stomach, the private part, and the feet represent the seven climes. The INWARD members like the lungs, the brain, the kidney, the heart, the gallbladder, the liver, and the spleen represent the 'seven' heavens. The lungs are the first heaven and represent the sphere of the moon, the intermediary between the two worlds...many angels....the leader of which in charge of temperate water and air. The brain is the second heaven and represents the sphere Mercury...Main angel in charge of learning to write, aquiring knowledge, and managing livelihood is Gabriel. He is the second cause of the knowledge of the people of the world. The kidneys are the third heaven = Venus = joy/happiness.

Happy or Sad? Plant/mineral or animal?

'Appetite' is the leader of these angels. The heart is the fourth heaven = the sun = Seraphiel. He is the secondary cause of the life of the people of the world. The spleen is the fifth heaven = Mars, in charge of severity, wrath, beating, and killing. He is the LENDER {leader?} of these angels. The liver is the sixth = Jupiter = Michael = ''the cause of the provision of the inhabitants {people}. The gallbladder = seven{th} heaven = Saturn = ''in charge of taking spirits {at death} = Azrael.

mer-werContinued: "The immense waterworks undertaken by the ancient Egyptian pharaohs of the twelfth dynasty to transform the lake into a huge water reservoir gave the impression that the lake was an artificial excavation, as reported by classic geographers and travellers. The lake was eventually abandoned due to the nearest branch of the Nile shrinking from 230 BC.
The name Moeris is a Greek version (reformed as if from Greek - "the Fates") from Egyptian mer-wer ‘great canal’. Amenemhat III, who started this project was also known as Moeris. In ancient Egypt, the lake was also variously called ‘the lake’, ‘pure lake’, and ‘Osiris’ lake’. During the Middle Kingdom, the whole area around the lake was often referred to as mer-wer as well. Similarly, the Late Egyptian word Piom ‘sea’, originally restricted to Lake Moeris, came to be used to refer to the city of Crocodilopolis (mod. Faiyum), then to the entire region in later times." ['Wiki']. Try ''crocodile''.

Side note: "But sacred libations were also poured through ceremony as a 'magical' devise for effecting the rebirth of the spirit body into the inner life, thus serving as a spiritual birth canal..." [Page 103 of the book by R. Clark].

And/or: ''The pyramid of Seila is one of a group of seven small step pyramids which are very similar to one another, along with the Edfu South pyramid, the pyramid of Elephantine, the pyramid of El-Kula, the pyramid of Naqada, the pyramid of Saujet el-Meitin, and the pyramid of Sinki. These pyramids were all built far from the major centres of Egypt and very little is known about them. The pyramid is located on an outcrop between the Faiyum Oasis and the Nile Valley, about 6 km north of the motorway from Wasta to Faiyum. Its builder may have been Snefru, the founder of the Fourth Dynasty. It was discovered in 1889/1890 by Flinders Petrie[1] and revisited in 1898 by Ludwig Borchardt.''

And/or: ''There are seven step pyramids that are attributed to either Huni - the last king of the 3rd Dynasty - or Sneferu - the first king of the 4th Dynasty. Located in different provinces in Egypt, from Seila near the Faiyoun in the North to Elephantine in the South. All stand alone. None have entrances, internal CORRIDORS, or chambers. Could not therefore have been tomb locations.'' [Page 96 'Shamanic Wisdom in the Pyramid Texts' / J. Naydler].

And/or: ''Just under 51 degrees is the pyramid of Seila - with smooth sides - the very first in Egypt. The forerunner of the all the rest. Built by Snefru. Built as a 'four' step {mastaba}: 'Nearly 'eighty' foot high. 'SIX' internal compartments built of limestone, but packed with clay/mud brick, then covered with the best limestone from Tura. On the north and east face were chapels for worship, characteristic of later pyramids.'' ['Lost Treasures of Egypt' / S4 EP8].

That DUALITY again.

Mud brick baked by the sun. Limestone created by ancient sea beds. Fire/Water. Innner/Outer as a means....?


Inner/outer. A beginning or end?

''The limestone from Tura was the finest and whitest of all the Egyptian quarries, so it was used for facing stones for the richest tombs, as well as for the floors and ceilings of mastabas, which were otherwise made of mudbrick... A layer of limestone covers most of the surface of modern Egypt. Beneath this lies a bed of sandstone, and this earlier sandstone is the surface rock in Nubia and southern Upper Egypt, as far north as the area between Edfu and Luxor.''

And/or: ''El Lahun (Arabic: اللاهون El Lāhūn, Coptic: ⲗⲉϩⲱⲛⲉ alt. Illahun, Lahun, or Kahun (the latter being a neologism coined by archaeologist William Matthew Flinders Petrie) is a workmen's village in Faiyum, Egypt {'new city'?}. El Lahun is associated with the Pyramid of Senusret II (Greek: Sesostris II), which is located near the modern town, and is often called the Pyramid of Lahun. The ancient name of the site was rꜣ-ḥn.t, literally, "Mouth (or Opening) of the Canal")....The most remarkable discovery was that of the village of the workers who both constructed the pyramid and then served the funerary cult of the king {'Senusret is at peace'}. The village, conventionally known as Kahun, is about 800 meters from the pyramid and lies in the desert a short distance from the edge of cultivation. When found, many of the buildings were extent up to roof height, and Petrie confirmed that the true arch was known and used by the workmen in the village....The pyramid stands on an artificial terrace cut from sloping ground. On the north side eight rectangular blocks of stone were left to serve as mastabas, probably for the burial of personages associated with the royal court. In front of each mastaba is a narrow shaft leading down to the burial chamber underneath. Also on the north side is the Queen's Pyramid or subsidiary pyramid.''

Recall Menkaure's son who returned to the use of a mastaba.

''It was called the floating pyramid - because it was surrounded by water. Butterfly {copper?} connectors between each block, with the pharaohs cartouche made the edifice secure. Socket joints at the base did the same for the foundation {'anchored'?}. Senusret built the first dam in the Faiyum {Fayoum}. Chapels found east and north but no entrance into the pyramid. Entrance found - by way of a deep shaft - on its south side {ALL others have north at the entry point}. Burial chamber made of pink granite from Aswan. A solid gold wadjet snake found with blue head.  ['Blowing Up History' S5 EP9].

Side note: ''On Floating Bodies (Greek: Περὶ τῶν ἐπιπλεόντων σωμάτων) is a Greek-language work consisting of two books written by Archimedes of Syracuse (287 – c. 212 BC), one of the most important mathematicians, physicists, and engineers of antiquity. On Floating Bodies, which is thought to have been written around 250 BC, survives only partly in Greek, the rest in medieval Latin translation from the Greek. It is the first known work on hydrostatics, of which Archimedes is recognized as the founder.[1]

The purpose of On Floating Bodies was to determine the positions that various solids will assume when floating in a fluid, according to their form and the variation in their specific gravities. It contains the first statement of what is now known as Archimedes' principle.''

N.B. The purity of 'GOLD' derived from it.

And/or: ''The Ramesseum Dramatic Papyrus describes and comments on a ritual performed for 12th Dynasty king, Sesostris I {Senusret}. Derives from a 1st Dynasty ritual or something like it....May have taken place in the Old Kingdom, at the time the Pyramid Texts were committed to writing....A royal ritual of fortysix scenes, with thirtyone vignettes {''seventyseven'' and/or ''three and four''?} - culminating in the coronation of Horus and the raising {''upright''?} of Osiris....It could be linked to the Sed Festival {on the eve of it} - to the renewal of kingship...The texts identify with the qeni {worn over the chest and back and knotted at the shoulders}, normally seen during the Opening of the Mouth ceremony...It signifies the union or ''embrace'' of the Horus-king and Osiris. The king says: I have embraced this my 'father' who has become tired, so that he may be healthy again....And/or: ''The Pyramid texts also state that Horus, who is held protectively by the embrace of Osiris, is made shining {akh} - like Ra - through his embrace....eventually to climb a great ladder that reaches up to the sky.'' ['Page 70 'Shamanic Wisdom in the Pyramid Texts' / J. Naydler].

And/or: ''The accentuation of the center is a fundamental idea on alchemy....The center contains the ''indivisible point,'' which is simple, indestructible, and eternal. Its physical counterpart is gold, which is therefore a symbol of eternity. In Christianos the center is compared to paradise and its four rivers. These symbolize the philosophical fluids, which are emanations from the center. In the center of the earth the seven planets took root, and left their virtues there, wherefore in the earth is a germinating 'water'....The fire that originates in the center carries everything upward, but when it cools everything falls back again to the center....''

Living water?

Decorative edge?

Continued: ''In the pink is an informal expression meaning the peak of health or an optimal state. It is often used to describe a situation in which an investor or an economy is in a good financial position....The expression in the pink to mean to be at the peak of health goes back to the 1500s when the word pink did not refer to a color. At that time, the word pink referred to a certain type of flower called dianthus, still referred to as pinks in the English vernacular, today.''


''The name Dianthus is from the Greek words δῖος dios ("of Zeus") and ἄνθος anthos ("flower"), and was cited by the Greek botanist Theophrastus.[2] The color pink may be named after the flower, coming from the frilled edge of the flowers: the verb "to pink" dates from the 14th century and means "to decorate with a perforated or punched pattern". As is also demonstrated by the name of "pinking shears", special scissors for cloth that create a zigzag or decorative edge that discourages fraying. Alternatively, "pink" may be derived from the Dutch "pinksteren" alluding to the season of flowering . "Pinksteren" means "Pentecost " in Dutch. Thus the colour may be named from the flower rather than the flower from the colour.''

Something 'new'?

Continued: His predecessor Senusret I was the first pharaoh to realign the orientation of HIS temple at Heliopolis: ''His temple stood behind the obelisk - the procssional avenue into Heliopolis does not follow the usual E/W orientation but is significantly slanted.... towards the north.

The REAL QUESTIONS, however, remain the same.

And/or: "These organs were called the Sons of Horus because their functions, when man became aware of them, contribute to the realization of Horus in man, that is, of man's complete and immortal consciousness. They are therefore represented at the judgement of the deceased as elevated on a lotus, that is to say, sublimated, having lost all their perishable elements and become pure consciousness. Each belongs to one of the four regions of the body...The canopic vases did not contain either the 'polar' {N/E} organs {brain and 'sex'} or the kidneys {S/W} ..." [Same book]. Try ''lotus''.

Clonfert (Irish: Cluain Fearta) is a small village in east County Galway, Ireland, halfway between Ballinasloe and Portumna. The village gives its name to the Diocese of Clonfert. Clonfert Cathedral is one of the EIGHT cathedral churches of the Church of Ireland, Diocese of Limerick and Killaloe.''

Brendan and the Whale.

And/or: ''Brendan of Clonfert (c. AD 484 - c.577), is one of the early Irish monastic saints and one of the Twelve Apostles of Ireland. He is also referred to as Brendan the Navigator, Brendan the Voyager, Brendan the Anchorite, Brendan the Bold. The Irish translation of his name is Naomh Bréanainn or Naomh Breandán. He is mainly known for his legendary voyage to find the “Isle of the Blessed” which is sometimes referred to as “Saint Brendan’s Island”. The written narrative of his journey comes from the immram The Navigatio Sancti Brendani Abbatis (Voyage of Saint Brendan the Abbot).''

Saint Brendan's feast day is celebrated on 16 {'sixteen'} May by Catholics, Anglicans, and Orthodox Christians.

''The legend of travelling monk, St Brendan was well known in the High Middle Ages: He set off, with followers, from Ireland in 512 for the Land of Promise. On the journey, the monks met demons, were chased by sea serpents and a griffin – and landed on the back of a whale, mistaking it for an island.''

''The Jasconius is a creature with origins in Roman mythology, legend and folklore. In particular, accounts of its existence first arose in Pliny the Elder's Natural History. However, the specific name Jasconius is not given for the creature until a much later account from Medieval Europe (specifically in an account called The Legend of Saint Brendan).

The 'living' island.

Or, at least, most believe that the Jasconius is first mentioned in Ancient Greek texts. However, there are some that believe the creature is first mentioned in the Bible. Specifically, they believe that the Jasconius is the gigantic fish that swallows Jonah up, for three [3] days and three [3] nights, in Jonah 2:2 {'twentytwo'?}. Though, in all actuality, there is no evidence that the two fish are the same, other than the fact that they can both grow to enormous size.

Likewise, no source actually even gives a translation for the name 'Jasconius', or any of the name's variations. The closest one comes to any name with a distinct meaning is when Pliny the Elder refers to the creature as "pristis", meaning "of immense size". And yet, this seems more like a description than a species name.''

And/or: ''According to the tradition of the Physiologus and medieval bestiaries, the aspidochelone is a fabled sea creature, variously described as a large whale or vast sea turtle, and a giant sea monster with huge spines on the ridge of its back. No matter what form it is, it is always described as being so huge that it is often mistaken for an island and appears to be rocky with crevices and valleys with trees and greenery and having sand dunes all over it. The name aspidochelone appears to be a compound word combining Greek aspis (which means either "asp" or "shield"), and chelone, the turtle. It rises to the surface from the depths of the sea, and entices unwitting sailors with its island appearance to make landfall on its huge shell and then the whale is able to pull them under the ocean, ship and all the people, drowning them. It also emits a sweet smell that lures fish into its trap where it then devours them. In the moralistic allegory of the Physiologus and bestiary tradition, the aspidochelone represents Satan, who deceives those whom he seeks to devour.''

Greek equivalent: Poseidon {'horses + island' links}. Zeus {'cave / fed by she goat link}. Apollo + sister {born on island with foundations i.e., 'anchored' link}.

And/or: ''From the root of 'ankh' we get the German angst, which means 'anxiety' the neurosis that Freud explicitly links with the 'birth process', for he points out: The name Angst {angustiae, Eage} = a narrow place, a strait - accentuates the characteristic tightening in the breathing...The ankh is also then the chance 'opening', or opportunity, that is narrow {Gebel el -Silsila?} - as the 'crack between the worlds'. The Egyptians placed an ankh in the left ear of the dead person - a link to karmic judgement - that which i take in, as opposed to that which i do not want to hear. Also the ear lobe is shaped like an ankh loop....The ankh is sometimes seen as a sandal with a toe strap. For not only does the pun {sacred ones?} apply that the sandal cares for the comfort of the sole i.e., soul {where no foot may tread?}....The Egyptian word ankh is from the Old Egyptian hnk, meaning 'narrow' / 'embrace' / 'strangle' - a reminder of birth into life - suggesting something that binds. A contemporary symbol would be a wedding ring. Eliade points out that ankh may be derived from Sumerian An, meaning 'Sky' and 'Ki' meaning 'Earth' - born out of the Great Mother, Chaos....Originally 'close together' {no space between}...First offspring forces 'them apart' {light i.e., luminosity and/or numinosity} - only in this 'created space' {''being''?} can naming of the various parts of the world be carried out {'fifteen'?}.''

Gebel el Silsila to enlarge.

The phrase “hot on the heels” means in close pursuit of someone or something, or immediately after some event1. It originates from hunting terminology, where the “on the heels” part refers to a hunter’s literal closeness behind their quarry. The word “hot” alludes to the warmth of an active living creature, as opposed to the cold of a corpse or the unconsciousness of being “out cold” 1When hounds are close to their prey, they are said to be “in hot pursuit.” 

Side note: "Horeb" is thought to mean glowing/heat, which seems to be a reference to the Sun, while Sinai may have derived from the name of Sin, the Ancient Mesopotamian religion deity of the Moon,[2][9] and thus Sinai and Horeb would be the mountains of the Moon and Sun, respectively.''

'' Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.”

When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!”

And Moses said, “Here I am.”

“Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.”

Then he said, “I am the God of your father,[a] the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God.

The Lord said, “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering. So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey.''

More horizontal? What would it look like in the 'vertical'? Djed column?

A working example: ''In Faroese, the name appears as Føroyar. Oyar represents the plural of oy, older Faroese for 'island'. Due to sound changes, the modern Faroese word for island is oyggj. The first element, før, may reflect an Old Norse word fær ('sheep'), although this analysis is sometimes disputed because Faroese now uses the word seyður (from Old Norse sauðr) to mean 'sheep'. Another possibility is that the Irish monks {i.e., St. Brendan}, who settled the island around 625, had already given the islands a name related to the Gaelic word fearann, meaning 'land' or 'estate'. This name could then have been passed on to the Norwegian settlers, who then added oyar (islands).[12] The name thus translates as either 'Islands of Sheep' or 'Land Islands'....According to a ninth-century voyage tale, the Irish saint Brendan visited islands resembling the Faroes in the sixth century. This association, however, is not conclusive...

In English, it may be seen as a tautology to say the Faroe Islands, since the oe comes from an element meaning 'island'. This is seen in the BBC Shipping Forecast, where the waters around the islands are called Faeroes. The name is also rarely spelled Faeroe.''

From a different perspective: ''At the age of sixty Khudiram made a pilgrimage to Gaya {N/E India}. Here, from ancient times, Hindus have come from the four corners of India to discharge their duties to their departed ancestors by offering them food and drink at the sacred footprint of the Lord Vishnu. At this holy place Khudiram had a dream in which the Lord Vishnu promised to be born as his son. His wife {Chandra Devi} also had a vision in front of the Siva temple at Kamarpukur indicating the birth of a 'divine' child. It was on February 18 {'eighteen'}, 1836, that the child - later to known as Ramakrishna, was born.

"A few months later, Easter 1937, i conducted on the lawn of the new ashram the first of many Easter sunrise services. Like the Magi of old, several hundred students gazed in awe of the daily miracle: the awakening solar rite in the eastern sky. To the west lay the Pacific Ocean, booming its solemn praise; in the distance a tiny white sailing boat and the lonely flight of a seagull. 'Christ, thou art risen'. Not with the vernal sun alone, but in spirit's eternal dawn." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'].

"The Virgin - is the principle of springtime,i.e., that of creative spiritual elan and spiritual flourishing. The prodigious flourishing of philosophy and the arts in ancient Athens took place under the sign of the Virgin.

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

We call this feminine consciousness wisdom. It has been personified in Christian theology as Sophia and in Jewish mysticism as the Shekhina, God's feminine aspect. In Greek mythology, Athena as the goddess of wisdom. These feminine aspects of the Saturn archetype highlight how the Greek god Cronos..."

Continued: For a truer possible interpretation for 'its' original chose {i.e.,the structure of the letter 'M'} - try the chapter entitled 'The Science and Art of Animating Statues' within the book 'Alexandria' vol 2 by D. Fideler. [The pictures have to be seen to understand their true significance]. Until then...


Question. Stylized 'm' - in the 'vertical' position? If so, what does the 'bird' represent and for whom?

"The bas relief we have examined, dating back some 3,300 years, is clearly structured on the accepted canon of 19 squares. However, the 19-square grid is not a true canon of proportion, but a canonical rule of thumb that was used in Egyptian art. True proportion involves the use of ratio, and one of the most dynamic ratios is the Golden Section, reflected in the process of unfolding life. Students of geometry draw a distinction between the principles of static and dynamic symmetry. The square grid is useful but static; the phi grid is dynamic and brings the piece to life." [Same chapter]. Put both ''ratio'' and especially ''bosom'' in the usual box. Then try ''nineteen''.

"...To meditate is to deepen; it is to go to the heart of things." [Extract from the book by Tomberg. 'Letter 21' ].

A study program does the same. Yes or no?

The hand of Sabazios. Thumb = pinecone? And/or: Thumb and forefinger = ''onehundred'' i.e., 'circle'

Analogy of same..."That duality is now expressed on a lower plane in the static and the dynamic elements of our construction. That is in a circle and a cross. The cross represents a 'static' matrix of energies, the circle a 'dynamic' expression of energies within that matrix. Both circle and cross are expressions of the initiating, creative spirit that is represented by the point at the common center of both cross and circle...That central point is also expressed as an 'altar'...In masonic symbolism this duality is expressed by the square and compass. The square marks out the cross; the compass, the circle. This finds another expression in the heavens and the earth. The heavens are associated with circular movement {12+5? and/or N/S? }, for that is what the stars describe to all who watch them from the earth. The earth is associated with the straight line {10+7? and/or E/W? } - the measuring out of land - and the straight line that is given by a plumb bob or pendulum, or a falling object, that by the force of gravity makes a direct path toward the center of the earth." [Extract from the book 'The Rose Cross and The Goddess: The Quest for the Eternal Feminine Principle'].

Compass of the Heart?

''The inner guardian is our true North, the keeper of the charts.'' Try 'map' / 'whale'.

And/or: ''There are perhaps a hundred pendulums moving here and there in man. These ascents and descents, these wave like flunctuations of moods {ebb and flow?}, thoughts, feelings, energy, determination, are periods of the development of forces between 'intervals' in the octaves as well as the intervals themselves...'' [Location 2688 {Kindle}: 'In Search of the Miraculous'].

All as a means.......?

Static or dynamic?

Above or below the clouds?

A working example and/or synchronistic: ''Then think of your own metamorphosis', he suggested. 'What will you be when you become a butterfly. What is the butterfly of Jeanne?' What a great question for a 14 year old girl, a question for puberty rites, initiations into adulthood, and other new ways of being. 'I don't  really know anymore Mr Tayer,'.... 'Yes you do know. It is inside of you, like the butterfly is inside the caterpillar.' He then used a word that i heard for the first time, a word that became essential to my later work. 'What is the entelechy of Jeanne? A great word, A Greek word, entelechy. It means the dynamic purpose that is coded in you. It is the entelechy of the acorn to be an oak tree or the entelechy of the caterpillar to undergo metamorphosis and become a butterfly. So what is the butterfly, the entelechy of Jeanne? You know, you really do'..... I looked up at the CLOUDS, and it seemed that i could see in them the shapes of many countries. A fractal of my future emerged in the cumulus nimbus floating overhead. 'I think that i will travel all over the world and help people find their entelechy.'' [Page 142/3 'A Mythic Life' / J. Houston].

'Cloud of Unknowing'?

Side note: ''He found that god is two in one, like man. Besides this he noticed something that our text also emphasizes, namely ''suspension of breathing.'' He says ordinary breathing stopped and was replaced by an internal respiration, ''as if breathing of a distinct personality within and other than the physical organism.'' He took this to being the ''entelechy'' of Aristotle and the ''inner Christ'' of the apostle Paul, the ''spiritual and substantial individuality engendered within the physical  and phenomenal personality, and representing, therefore, the rebirth of man on a plane transcending the material.'' [Page 27 'Alchemical Studies'].

Tower reaching above....{The Peak Above the Clouds}.

Continued: ''Cumulonimbus (from Latin cumulus, "heaped" and nimbus, "rainstorm") is a dense, towering vertical cloud,[1] typically forming from water vapor condensing in the lower troposphere that builds upward carried by powerful buoyant air currents. Above the lower portions of the cumulonimbus the water vapor becomes ice crystals, such as snow and graupel,'' [Wiki].

''The only cloud type to produce hail, thunder and lightening is Cumulonimbus.'' ['The Chase' / 2018].

N.B. Recall the tail of the Bear as it was thrown up into the sky by {Zeus?}.

The most ancient of all 'sea dragons' found in Rutland. Ruthland?

From a different perspective: ''In the text i notice that the dissolution of the 'dragon' by Sol is also seen to bring about the division of 'mercury' and 'sulphur' - the volatile and the fixed. This represents the beginning of the seperation between the inner mental life {psyche} and the outer physical life {body}.[Page 140/1 'Mercurius' / P. Harpur].

Stags or Doe's? {'Winterwatch' / Feb. 2019}.

"The concept of the Pillars is of great importance. Everything that exists to objective perception is a manifestation of forces in 'duality.' These dual forces in complement or vortex ['spiral' link], are represented by two pillars." [Chapter one, 'The Rose Cross and the Goddess' by G. Knight]. Recall what ''objective'' implies. Recall 'its' importance in any subject. [Representational of]. Continued elsewhere.

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

The REAL question however is - as always - regardless of what one may or may not come to understand - is WHY. Why go to all this effort?

Why a Virgin birth? To distinguish it from the norm. A normal birth cannot be described as ‘virginal’ but a concept can... ....Life equals source; equals birth; equals woman; equals woman's name; equals ‘Virgin’. [ ‘Key’ word.] Folklore equivalent = Maiden...Equals that first experience; with the reader in mind only; of the understanding of a concept. In relation to a possible understanding of the source / origin of ‘something’. Symbolic of...the ‘source of life.’ [ in their way of implication ] ’The breath of life’. [ Old testament ] Or ’ Kore Kosmou’.[ Hermetic equivalent ].

"The term 'virgin birth' does not appear anywhere in the biblical texts, but Isaiah 7:14 and Mathew 1:23 both make the same statement: 'The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son'..." [From the book by K. Gest].

Put those three keys together, i.e.,virgin; 'child' and 'son' - to define something other than the obvious...

Third eye?

Side note: "You have three guesses: why does the proverb say ''Good things come in threes'', and why does the psychologist think that 3 restores the damaged 2 has caused by dividing? The reason , as Ludwig Paneth has stated, is that the triad leads to a new integration, one that does not negate the duality preceding it but rather, overcomes it, just as the child is a binding element that unites the male and female partner." [from the chapter: The Embracing Synthesis {3} / 'Mystery of Numbers' / Annemarie Schimmel].


Astro ceiling in Senenmut bare tomb chamber. 'Folded'?

And/or: "Scholar Arthur Waley has discovered magic thread reference in I-Ching, oracle 29: 'Bind with a thread of three strands and two strands, put it in a bramble thicket {'Hawthorn'?} - and you will get your wish after three years'.


This twentyseven line oracle is usually called 'The Pit' or The Abysmal'. But its Chinese name usually means the double or folded pit {'cube'?}. Waley believes it is connected with lunar ritual, being 'one hole opening out of another... [Page 79 'The White Goddess' ].

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


"...The lower three 'spheres' are related to worldly consciousness and the upper four are related to spiritual consciousness and 'enlightenment'. Therefore, the lower must be sublimated into the higher ones." [Extract from the book by S. Ashby].

REFRESHER; "Clement of Alexandria elucidates the idea that Jesus is the 'son of god' by explaining: 'The Son is the consciousness of the Father.' The 'Father' is the Mystery...the dazzling darkness of UNconscious Consciousness." Anything?

A 'virgin' Queen?

Analogy {closer to the 'heart'?}: "A certain aspect of the Old Mystery wisdom which continued on into early Christian times was known as Gnosis. The Christian Gnostic scriptures which have come down to us in the 'Pistis Sophia' tell of the descent or fall of the original ''Virgin'' wisdom into darkness, and its salvation by Christ. It is called Sophia, the virgin of light. There are passages which refer to the power of the 'virgin of light' to redeem mankind...The 'Virgin' has always stood for the archetype of the soul, clothed in the light of wisdom..." ['The Flaming Door'].

Question. If ''Virgin'' = soul. What represents 'spirit'. And why?

"She is an archetype, unborn and deathless, a Virgin, bringing her Child - the human soul - from the Sun." Same book.

Dazzling Aten?

"In the Christian mythos the Blessed Virgin, Mary, becomes the vehicle for both these aspects [in relation to the principles that 'Binah' represents within the Hebrew tree of life]. In the bright vernal scene of the Annunciation, when the Archangel Gabriel comes to her, bearing lilies......she is the archetypal embodiment of the Bright 'Fertile Mother'. In a sense this is a transformation and fulfillment of the great pagan virgin goddess such as Diana or Atalanta." [Part 6, 'The Rose Cross and the Goddess'. Emphasis, this readers]. Recall what ''lilies'' represent.

Use the minds eye to 'see' something!
''To see is to behold''? i.e., in the SPIRTUAL SENSE of the word!

A 'working' example {i.e.,something hinted at}: "He arrived at the Atelier. The sculpture received him cordially and asked him to come in...Jean Thomas looked around at the new decor. On the stiff curtains hanging from column to column were engravings of religious paintings - primitive paintings and those of the Renaissance, of Giotto, della Francesca, and Fra Angelico. There were Madonnas and angels. Before the Holy See, there was a beautifully illustrated Mass book on a pulpit. At the feet of the black Virgin was a spray of lilies, which contrasted with the ebony of the statue." ['Journey into the Light'].
