Esotericism Part 3 Sec 03





Lake Van {S/E?}.

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

"He could speak clearly and convincingly without mention of god or the soul. He could explain the purpose of life and its fulfillment in terms of Truth, and the search for understanding, with no reference to religious worship or beliefs of any kind. He said: 'If you believe in God, then your search must be for god; but even if you believe in nothing, you must still have some conviction that there is a meaning behind this visible world. You must be determined to seek out that meaning and understand it." [Quote from the book by J. Bennett].

Question. Is this subject therefore [possibility of] - nothing more than self hypnosis?

A {working?} example: "Nonetheless the effect of a well conducted initiation ceremony is quite impressive. To stand at the door of the lodge upon which three knocks are given on one's behalf, to meet with the challenge as the door swings slightly ajar, bringing with it a waft of incense - ''Stranger from the outer world, why seek ye to enter our secret places and hidden mysteries?" and being prompted to answer {as from your own Higher Self}, ''I desire to know in order to serve''. To be admitted blindfolded { to represent your own stumbling forward in spiritual darkness}, to where the hooded brethren are assembled. Then, in due course, the hoodwink removed, to observe the symbolic furniture of the temple as you are ceremoniously processed around for instruction, admonishment and contact by the various officers of the lodge." ['I Called it Magic' / G. Knight - including parenthesis].

Define those keys {highlighted} to educate {initiate?} those - first impressions?

Refresher: ''The Siren heralds a friend the Bee a stranger.''

The ''golden'' child's nurse. Real or symbolic? Transforming 'fingers'?

Same intent - but now 'seen' from a different perspective {that first one?}: "Hera, queen of Heaven and the sister and consort of Zeus, is also the goddess of 'marriage' and the protector of women in childbirth. This latter role fits well her association with the moon, the celestial object that is reborn each lunar month. Hera is as important in astronomical allegory as she is in the narrative of the Iliad. A poor loser in the Judgement of Paris, she displays her anger and hatred of the Trojans from the opening pages of the epic. Her title of queen indicates an ancient perception of the Moon as queen of the night skies, and references to her as 'strange queen' suggests the distorted or unbalanced face of the moon in its gibbous phase between half and full moon." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'. Emphasis, this readers]. Try ''marriage'' and ''child'' - to see it from that inner {spectrum?}.

Refresher: "Everyone has an internal thought process: that silent other self who speaks to you; the one you debate with." [First sentence; first paragraph; first page of the book by Q. S. Lam].

Side note: Man in the moon or 'Hare' in the moon? {anagram of Hera?}.

"Analogy is the final word of science and the first word of faith. Harmony consists in equilibrium, and equilibrium subsists by the analogy of contraries. Absolute unity is the supreme and final reason of things." Quote from within the book 'Transcendental Magic: Its Doctrine and Ritual' by E. Levi. Question. Before those first impressions take hold - what does "transcendental'' imply. Think about it in relation to the ''divine bit'' relative to ''primary'' and ''secondary''. Enlarged elsewhere. Possibilities of - ONLY.

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

"...that geared me towards more profound shores." Quote from M. Katz.

"Gudea made offerings of honey and butter when the foundations were laid; when the building was finished an auspicious day was waited for, and when it came the image of the god was removed to the new temple, and Gudea sprinkled the ground with oil, and set out offerings of honey, butter, wine and dates, grain mixed with milk, food untouched by 'fire', for the gods." [ Chapter 3, 'The Sacred Bee']. Recall what 'food' represents, [e.g., put ''butter'' or ''honey'' or ''milk'' in the 'search box'].

'15' parts?

Passover Cake?


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

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

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

And/or: ''Rouen, capital of the northern French region of Normandy, is a port city on the river Seine. Important in the Roman era and Middle Ages, it has Gothic churches, such as Saint-Maclou and Saint-Ouen, and a cobblestoned pedestrian center with medieval half-timbered houses. The skyline is dominated by the spires of Cathédrale Notre-Dame, much-painted by Impressionist Claude Monet.'' [Wiki].

''After a while these two mutually stimulating sensations gave way suddenly to a peaceful inner state such as i experienced in later life only once, when the ceremony of the 'great initiation' into the brotherhood of 'the makers of butter from air' was performed over me.'' [Page 34 'Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson' / Gurdjieff].

Something extra: ''White pebbles'' found and the area has in the past been known as ''seven springs''. [www.the]. Try ''white stones''.

That number 7 again. Try ''butter'' to attempt a mind set.

Father or Mother. Spirit or soul - as a means....?

What would his REAL mother think?

"At first sight art promises to be a better source than burials for the study of beliefs; after all, it was presumably designed to deliver a message to the observer...To a student of prehistoric religion, the earliest significant works are a group of about 35 female figurines found on twelve sites scattered from Pyrenees to Siberia. In view of this vast geographical range, their similarity is striking. All are relatively small, about the length of a hand, and all are footless and faceless {symbolic intent only?}- with swollen breasts, buttocks and/or abdomens. Within this style there are variations. They are fashioned in clay, ivory and stone. Some are fat, some apparently pregnant, and some have the breasts and buttocks alone emphasized. Those from western and central Europe tend to be found singly {'rural'?} and without any context, while the Russian examples are found more often in groups and on settlement sites {town /'city'?}...At Yeliseevici, on the river Desna, one was found among three mammoths' skulls arranged in a circle. At Laussel in the Dordogne, France, three reliefs of women holding objects {an upward curving bison horn - marked with thirteen lines} - were found carved upon boulders in a rock shelter. The womans left hand rests on her abdomen, and she had been painted red, which seems to be the colour most often connected with sacred or arcane matters in the Palaeolithic. NO collection of male images is associated with ALL THESE FEMALES. [Therefore symbolic intent of 'anima'?}... So what did they mean? ['The Pagan Religions of the Ancient British Isles: Their Nature and Legacy' / R. Hutton].

Besides the obvious {highlighted} try ''milk'' or ''churning'' or ''horn'' or ''rock'' or ''belly'' or ''elephant'' and especially 'arc' in relation to ''upward'' etc...

What would Mother Russia think?

''Pregnant'' {with something} - in the spiritual sense of the word...?

Question. Are all found near rivers rather than seas?

Do most have hands behind their backs? Pre or post ''transforming fingers'' ?

The main point, however is, understanding this subject gets us closer to those final answers. In the words of Mr N. Oliver {mentioned elsewhere} ''it gets us into the heads of neolithic man..." BUT because those keys are universal it also gets us into all 'other heads' - of those - who for whatever reason - want to understand {explore?} it - from the dawn of human kind - FROM the oral tradition up to and including the present. REGARDLESS of what we {the reader and/or observer} think about it. Therefore does that not define an aspect of our history - the human one?

N.B. ''Footless'' in relation to:

move7"For thought alone can see that which is hidden, inasmuch as thought itself is hidden from sight - and if even the thought which is within you is hidden from your sight - how can He [''god''], being in himself, be manifested to you through your bodily eyes? But if you have power to see with the eyes of the mind, He will manifest himself to you." Libellus v:2 [Extract taken from chapter one, 'The Sacred Tradition of Ancient Egypt'].

Hermetic equivalent..."Men will seek out the inner nature of the holy 'spaces' [chambers/niche link]...where no foot may tread". See it?

feetSide note: "The key essential element for growth has always been change {via motion}, and so we must, if we wish to grow, constantly strive to escape from the comfortable congestion of our daily lives - we must attempt to climb into a ''larger box'' {chamber?} whenever we can, like a snake shedding its skin through successive cycles of growth....We must actively think our way out, and the best way to do that is to constantly question - to test and probe the 'concreteness' of our world....We are engulfed in a sea of mystery which is normally never thought about or considered due to the well constructed walls of our defences." [Page 18 of the book by D. Monroe].

Walls of Jericho?

Try static/dynamic all as a means....?

Continued: REFRESHER: "Gudea made offerings of honey and butter when the foundations were laid; when the building was finished an auspicious day was waited for, and when it came the image of the god was removed to the new temple, and Gudea sprinkled the ground with oil, and set out offerings of honey, butter, wine and dates, grain mixed with milk, food untouched by 'fire', for the gods." [ Chapter 3, 'The Sacred Bee']. Recall what 'food' represents, [e.g.,put ''butter'' or ''honey'' or ''milk'' in the 'search box'].

Side note: In the Odysseus 'story' the main character meets Achilles in the 'underworld' - after mixing a concoction of foods ''untouched by fire'' {i.e.,honey, milk, sweet wine and white barley meal}. He {Achilles} so dislikes it that he would prefer to return to the physical world as a servant - than be Lord of the underworld.

Spirit OR soul?

Question. A balance of the two in order to move {static/dynamic?} forward?

Working example: Odysseus required to 'mix' certain foods in order to 'move on'. Requirements given to him by an aspect of himself {'Circe'}. The narrator Simon Armitage wonders about White Barley Meal in relation to the other 'foods' i.e., Water, Milk, Sweet wine, and Honey - all placed into a 'pit' {cubit square hole}.

Trickster type as a means....? Try 2:7 / 2:11 to enlarge.

Something extra:{and/or refresher}: "What is remarkable about all this is the way that the 'mill' {which continues to serve as an allegory for cosmic processes} stubbornly keeps on resurfacing, all over the world, even where the context has been jumbled or lost....Among the Cherokees, whose name for the Milky Way {our own galaxy} is 'Where the Dog Ran'. In ancient times, according to Cherokee tradition, 'the people in the South had a corn mill', from which meal was stolen {trickster type?} again and again. In due course the owners discovered the thief, a dog, who 'ran off howling to his home in the North' with the meal dropping from his mouth as he ran, and leaving behind a white trail where now we see the Milky Way, which the Cherokee call to this day - ''Where the Dog Ran''....In Central America, one of the many myths concerning Quetzalcoatl depicts him playing a key role in the regeneration of mankind after the all destroying flood that ended the Fourth Sun. Together with his dog headed companion Xolotl, he descends into the underworld to retrieve the skeletons of those 'killed' ….the bones are brought back.... like corn, they are milled into a fine meal on a grindstone....blood is added by the gods thus creating the flesh of the current age of man.....Dogs are numerous throughout {Odysseus is recognised by his 'faithful' dog on his return to Ithaca} - as are foxes which are members of the dog family i.e.,Samson and 300 foxes.....Santilla and von Dechend are confident that all this 'doggishness' is deliberate: another piece of the ancient code, as yet unbroken, tapping out its message from place to place...." [Page 253/4 'Fingerprints of the Gods' / G. Hancock].

To get us close to an answer {mind set?} attempt to narrow down those keys/concepts/signs/correspondences etc. Try ''Sweet'' {as opposed to 'bitter'} / ''Barley'' {in relation to 'wheat'} while recalling that a statue of Khafre was found ''upside down'' in a pit in the Sphinx temple. And/or: any 'Squared' Cubit in the night sky? ALL in relation to a ''foundation''?

Question. A foundation of what?

Question 2. What would ''BLACK Ram's blood'' represent. Aries? All in relation to a ''broken heart'' {i.e., another aspect of his nature represented as his ''mother''}.

''Odysseus travels onwards, but he does so as a changed man. Everything he had achieved at Troy, now seems like a huge waste {death/rebirth?}. 'Boundaries' between both. Hence the link with such concepts as 'Circe' and others . Priorities changing {'changeling'?}.

Lotus? S/E perspective? 'Helping hands' N/E? Right or left foot? What about the hypotenuse? All as a means...

Sculptured by ''The favourite of the King''.

Indian {counter culture? i.e., from a different perspective} - analogy..."When the Bose institute was opened, i attended the dedicatory services. Enthusiastic hundreds strolled over the premises. I was charmed with the artistry and spiritual symbolism of the new home of science. Its front gate is a centuried relic from a distant shrine. Behind a lotus pool, a sculptured female figure with a torch conveys the Indian respect for women as the immortal light bearer. A small temple in a garden is consecrated to the Noumenon beyond phenomena. Thought of the divine incorporiety is suggested by the absence of any altar image {i.e.,'fire'?}." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi'. Chapter Eight].

'Shadow' in relation to light [anima?]. As a MEANS to begin an understanding. S/W in relation to S/E?

And/or: Eastern Way = more ''subjective'' as opposed to the Western one?

Side step..."Etymology of the name 'Helen' could derive from the noun meaning ''torch'' and/or the root of the name Venus." [Wikipedia/Helen].

Homer's equivalent of the Hebrew 'Shulamite' or the Egyptian 'Nefertiti' {enlarged elsewhere} - as a means to...?

Question. Conspiracy obsessives?

Understanding the above. defines; or at least gives the reader an idea at what this author is hinting at...

feet4"Feet on the ground is an important part of Western posture. The destiny of the soul incarnate in the West is control of the physical environment. Mark the word control {'panther' link?} - and not abuse. That of the Eastern soul is more subjective. There the feet are best raised above the base of the spine, or closely conjoined to it, so forming a closed circuit of the aura not open to objective Earth currents." [Extract from the book by G. Knight]. As a means...?

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

"The Eastern schools recommend a posture seated, cross - legged in the lotus position." Anything?

With/without 'altar'? As a means...?

The Western perspective? i.e., seated/crosslegged.

"Sing to me of Oakenhill Wood. The trees were not oaks; they were conifers, but no matter...'It is i think, the sudden stillness, the stillness of a tall, a slender tree, the narrow, arrow straightness of the path, the unexpected consciousness of ''now'' - that grips, evokes and beckons; lifts high the latch of mystery. You cannot tread that way. Your feet will kick the door shut as they run. This path is not for treading; it does not lead, like that; to anywhere, like that. Rather, it is its destination; full known and fully trod when first began." ['The Sword in the Sun' / A. Duncan]. Try ''latch'' and/or ''conifer''.

And/or: "...she was the White Goddess Cardea. And although he became the 'door' {i.e., Janus: 'the stout guardian of the Oak door'} - she became the hinge that connected him with the door --post. Cardo, the hinge, is the same word as Cerdo, the craftsman - in Irish myth the god of craftsmen who specialised in hinges, locks and rivets was called Credne - the craftsman who originally claimed the goddess Cerdo or Cardea as his patroness.''

Question. Anima or Animus as a means....?


Continued: "Thus as Janus's mistress, Cardea was given the task of keeping from the door the nursery boggy who in matriarchal times was her own august self and who was propriated at Roman weddings with torches of Hawthorn. Ovid says of Cardea, apparently quoting a re-ligious formula: 'Her power is to open what is shut, and to shut was is open'...." [Page 68/9 'The White Goddess' / R. Graves].

Side note: ''slender tree'' in relation to Homer's Iliad, i.e.,the Dog Star {Achilles}. And/or ''latch'' in relation to those copper ones in the ascending passageway of the that well known monument.

''Slender tree'' in relation to the Tree of Life {i.e., in the 'internal' sense of the word}. Understanding that gives clues as to Wood-henge V Stonehenge. That 'journey' between the two. Down stream and then back up stream. A joining of the two. Hence tongue and groove joints that one normally associates only with wood. Something of an inner quality being understood and represented. {Khonsu link}. No analysis is given to most of the above especially the 'river' {and/or u-bends} between the two. Understand ALL the parts to define a MIND SET. Not just those that seem comfortable to the imagination.

Petrified wood (from the Latin root petro meaning "rock" or "stone"; literally "wood turned into stone") is the name given to a special type of fossilized remains of terrestrial vegetation. Petrifaction is the result of a tree or tree-like plants having transitioned to stone by a mineralization process that often includes permineralization and replacement. The organic materials making up cell walls have been replicated with minerals (mostly a silicate, such as opal, chalcedony, or quartz). In some instances, the original structure of the stem tissue may be partly retained. Unlike other plant fossils, which are typically impressions or compressions, petrified wood is a three-dimensional representation of the original organic material. [Wiki].

'Written in Stone' / 'Set in Stone' - as a means....?

Try ''ossify'' - to take it further.

A {'western'?} example: "In comparison to mediaeval man we are really lopsided shadows, for we are governed by our thinking brain which grips feet and fingers around our head and shoulders like Sinbad's Old Man of the Sea. Because of this demonic grip of intellect {'Tower of Babel'?} - it is difficult for us to 'see' the mediaeval symbols and art forms in the right way; that is, as they were meant to be seen..." ['The Secret Zodiac'].

In ancient Egypt the Scorpion symbol {'M'} was a viper or cobra with double loops.

"Ancient symbols have great value - if only because they compel one to avoid the pitfall of ''taking things for granted''. By making things difficult, they force the mind to dig down into the roots of reality and to fathom deeply unconscious vital processes." ['The Zodiac as the Universal Matrix' / Dane Rudhyar].

Example: A different perspective {'angle'?}..."Democritus had always been fond of honey; and once he answered a man who asked how he could live in the enjoyment of the best health..... that he might do so if he constantly moistened his inward parts with honey and his outward man with oil." [Chapter 7, 'The Sacred Bee'].

"The child of the Honey Lord, Aristaeus, whose wisdom discerned the toil of the bees, and the wealth of the labour of Olives learned." [Chapter 9, same book]. Link to Oak Island. Purpose of. Found within.

"Aristaeus, the son of Apollo and the nymph Cyrene, was worshiped as the giver of good gifts to men, and the protector of flocks and bees." That ''development'' - one stage further - a continuation of. Put ''gift'' in the usual box.

Honey found in tut's tomb. Still edible. Bee images also found. Symbolic? Or food for a nightly visit?

As is the intent of..."In late antiquity a strange, mythical formula or recipe was associated with this formerly very significant date on the first day of the Sirius year. It would seem to have been another way of lending a mythical significance to mead. The equation of honey with 'divine blood' was an accommodation to the Greek god of heaven, the myth of the ''lighting up'' expressed in the name of Zeus. In this case, however, it was not by accommodation but also directly that a natural phenomenon inspired a myth of 'zoe', a statement concerning life which shows its indestructibility in 'fermentation', that is, even in 'decay'. A link seems to have been perceived between fermentation and decay. This myths claim to truth was so great that it provided the basis for a practical formula. This formula was said to have first been devised by Aristaeus, who has been characterized as a ''figure in Greek religious history, concerning whom we have only a fragmentary and dispersed tradition." From this tradition however, the former importance of this god, who belonged to a very old and original stage of development, can be gathered. His place in the history of culture is determined by his relation to honey. He was said to have imparted the use of the beehive to man and was looked upon as the inventor of the mixture of wine and honey. Thus, he belongs to a period of Mediterranean culture which was marked by the domestication of bees, rather than the exploitation of wild bees..." [From the book by C. Kerenyi. Single inverted emphasis, this readers].

That ''development'' marked {noted?} by a comparison between ''domesticated'' and ''wild''. Zeus in relation to ''wild'' - Dionysos in relation to the other {i.e.,''it was said he was the inventor of honey''. Same book}. Recall its symbol.

Question. A 'development' of what. Just mead? Regardless whether wine and/or honey?

REFRESHER: "Gudea made offerings of honey and butter when the foundations were laid; when the building was finished an auspicious day was waited for, and when it came the image of the god was removed to the new temple, and Gudea sprinkled the ground with oil, and set out offerings of honey, butter, wine and dates, grain mixed with milk, food untouched by 'fire', for the gods." [ Chapter 3, 'The Sacred Bee']. Recall what 'food' represents, [e.g.,put ''butter'' or ''honey'' or ''milk'' in the 'search box'].

Spirit or soul as a means....?

Something extra:{and/or refresher}: "What is remarkable about all this is the way that the 'mill' {which continues to serve as an allegory for cosmic processes} stubbornly keeps on resurfacing, all over the world, even where the context has been jumbled or lost....Among the Cherokees, whose name for the Milky Way {our own galaxy} is 'Where the Dog Ran'. In ancient times, according to Cherokee tradition, 'the people in the South had a corn mill', from which meal was stolen {trickster type?} again and again. In due course the owners discovered the thief, a dog, who 'ran off howling to his home in the North' with the meal dropping from his mouth as he ran, and leaving behind a white trail where now we see the Milky Way, which the Cherokee call to this day - ''Where the Dog Ran''...." [Page 253 'Fingerprints of the Gods' / G. Hancock].

gtrfSide note: Grave goods found near Sittingbourne in a place called the Meads. Cut glass cone shaped beakers found in the shape of a horn. Narrator speculates as to why they are not free standing 'vessels' {i.e., symbolic intent only}. Try ''glass'' / ''horn'' / S/E / 'beaker'' / ''Watling Street'' etc., to get into a mind set beyond: ''love of feasting, love of mead''. ['Digging for Britain'. Series 1. Episode 3].

The 'fruits' of ones labour?

And/or: Eleven cauldrons found in Leicester ''shows the importance of ''feasting''. Remnants of meat and honey found within. Alice Roberts asks: ''Why so many?''. Main answer given: ''to feed the work force''. Elsewhere the only full chariot and rider {with two standing 'ponies'} found {buried} within these 'Islands' {N/E Yorkshire}.  ['Digging For Britain' / S.7. E.4].

Get closer to a truer mindset beyond: ''It proves they were not just barbarians'' - TRY ''cauldron'' ''honey'' ''wine'' ''lakes'' ''chariot'' etc.


Side note: Watling Street was thought of as an imprint of the Milky Way. From S/E England in a N/W direction to the border/boundary of Wales: ''Watling Street was built by the Romans following the same line as the Celtic myth of Giants walking down the same path as described centuries prior to the Roman occupation.'' ['Mirthy' / July 2022].

N.B. Offa's Dyke also indicative of that 'boundary' line.

And/or: Boudica {Boudicea} battled the Romans somewhere on Watling Street: ''80,000 died compared to 400 Romans.'' ['Secrets of the Celtic Grave' / Smithsonian].

Those 'numbers' again. Used within a mind set. Can they be used to locate someones final 'resting' place?

Ponytail. Seen ONLY {more often than not} with an Egyptian 'youth'. Always left side.

Rider in fetal position {lying on top of a bronze shield} - but ponies in STANDING one {i.e., 90 degrees to the norm}. Found in Pocklington on the EDGE of the Yorkshire Wolds {i.e., line of low hills along escarpment which drops into the Vale of York}. 'Glass' beads found with spiral engravings. Different 'levels' to the pit because of the UPRIGHT ponies like the different FLAT TOPPED levels of an escarpment - a procession of something.

'Mountain low, Valleys high'?

''No signs of violence on skeleton'' - Warrior/'Hero' as a means.....

And/or: Another shield, a bronze sheet on wood one {Battersea Shield}-  spoken about that had been ritually thrown {''offering''} into a river. '27' red coloured glassy pastels within three circular forms. OR MORE IMORTANTLY 'nineteen' within the THREE main circles - the remaining 'eight' on the outside edges of those main three. ''

External/Internal. Spirit-fire/Soul {water}. 'SEE' anything?

Quote: ''Getting rid of a lot of wealth. Somehow demonstrating  power and status....Many such  peices of iron age metal work such as shields and swords found in RIVERS AND BOGS - they are clearly not just functioning weapons but imbued with heavy symbolism.''

''Twentyseven'' to enlarge.

Meat HOOK found. 'Young' pigs + 'feasting' links.

''We think a lot of people gathered around this gravesite. This is a moment that sticks in their memory, and they didn't write any records, but they did write songs and tell stories.  We are the last witnesses to that drama....'' [Same program].

Try ''Theme''.

Herdsman or ploughman. Ploughshare?

And/or: "The pig was a beast of great importance to the Celts, both as a staple food and as an Otherworldly totem. The many cuts from the pig were served to selected 'heroes' at feasts to honour their exploits, yet, also, there is a curious ban on having anything to do with their herding. We have seen that Pryderi is named as one of the Three Powerful Swineherds, one in contact with Annwn and the sometimes overwhelming 'Underworld' powers. The 'OLDER' gods and heroes always have this Underworld connection and act as doorkeepers for those who travel to these realms. The hunting of the boar by the boy born in a pig-run is the theme of Culhwch: a quest which is analogous to the Harrowing of Annwn. to gain its treasures. Gwydion wishes to have the Underworlds treasures for his own people and, like Arthur and others who 'travel' to Annwn, is willing to steal them at the cost of many lives." [Pages 77-78 'Mabon and the Mysteries of Britain' / C. Mathews].


''They shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.'' (Isaiah 2:4).

''Plough'' to enlarge.

And/or: Road found very close to grave site. At right angles to it. Very close to the ''bend in the road''. Road made of chalk/limestone. ''Could have been the last road that the chariot made its 'journey' on.''

'Reed' huts? Thatched?

In same program Crannog's discussed {'Islands' in one form or another - but most important on LAKES/Loch's}. ['Digging for Britain' 7/4]. 'Butter' dish found. And carpentry main activity.

Question. Where did the ''idea'' of the crannog come from? i.e., artificial Islands.

Quote: ''Defence and protection''?

''Feast of the Valley''? And/or: Massive stone 'jars' found in a valley - N/E Lao. Thousands of years old. No one knows why. Enlarged elsewhere.

Define subject material to get into a mind set.

From a different perspective: Enthroned on Basalt or Granite? Question. Spirit or soul. Top/down or Bottom/up?

Side note: "The Feast of the Swings is not the only consideration which makes it seem likely that Dionysos was brought to Athens by 'women'. In its execution the JOYful right was exalted far above animal nature {'lower'?}, and, as already indicated it was connected with another more secret cult action - the gods 'marriage' to the highest ranking woman of the city, who under the democracy still held the title of 'queen'....Here again, just as in the swinging that was one of the amusements of the same festival, we have an expression of the aimless joy of life....At what feast, then, was the 'ship car' that had been held in readiness in some storeroom paraded with the enthroned {''seated''} statue of the god? ......The joke is an illusion not only to the importance of the Athenian trade in wine and wine JARS, but also to the fact that with Athens as his base Dionysos achieved greater power than he had enjoyed since the Minoan and Mycenaean eras. It was this 'power' that first led the 'sea' to be taken as the scene of his epiphany, as shown in Attic art." [Pages 160 -170 'Dionysos' / C. Kerenyi].

Static / Dynamic?

''Democracy is sometimes messy. Sometimes it requires a little patience as well.'' Joe Biden.


Side note: Practical/working example: ''Hello everyone. Hope you are all well. You may be asking yourself while you are watching this: 'Why is Callie so happy and smiling? How can she be so in the cold freezing Artic. Shouldn't she be cold and miserable? Well i have a secret - its K. G. Sparkle'. I have a  sister who is amazing and hilarious. Those are magic words....whenever she hears them she laughs hysterically for a good twenty minutes. So if i think of K.G. Sparkle i hear her laugh - and that makes me so happy. So if i ever get down i just sprinkle a little K.G. Sparkle on it and it becomes all good." {Callie/'Alone'/2020}.

Continued: "The central action was performed in the deepest secrecy within the narrowest limits of strict women's mysteries which no man could approach. The 'vase' paintings, however, show that the whole 'city' was very much concerned with  the secret action of these days....These actions were performed in and near the temple of Dionysos Limnaios....It occurred on the second day of the festival {feast?}, the only day of the year that the temple was 'open'. The 'three' feast days fell on the eleventh, twelfth, and thirteenth of the month. The first was called Pithoigia - ''day of the opening of the pithoi''. The large earthenware JARS, which were usually half buried, were certainly not dragged to the ''swamps'' any more than they had been in November when wine was drawn from them for the first mixing and tasting. At the time of the fermentation the jars had to be left open; afterwards they were left covered - otherwise all sorts of things, even a 'child' might have fallen in. If the 'lid' was removed on this day, it was for a religious reason.'' [Pages 301/2 - same book].

Continued: "Poets learned the complex metres, rhythms and stanza forms and thus formalised some facets of the mystery teachings, as we can still perceive in Taliesin's poetry - himself the arch-poet, initiate and Son of the Cauldron....The old Welsh word for 'story' {cyfarwyddyd} means 'guidance', 'direction', 'instruction', 'knowledge', 'skill', 'prescription'. Its stem {arwydd} means 'sign', 'symbol', 'manifestation' - and derives from a root meaning ''to see''...." [Page 15 of the book by C. Mathews. See below].

Something hinted at: "The mystical way of tradition has had to work to survive the battle which has been joined between faith and 'knowledge' since the time of Gnosticism....Two sets of visitants come to the manger in Bethlehem: the shepherds and the kings. The shepherds, impelled by angelic messengers, accept the proclamation of the 'new-born' messiah with uncritical enthusiasm - with faith. The kings, by means of their gnosis, 'follow' a star which is the certainty of their faith until they, too, reach their destination. It is perhaps of note that the shepherds go straight to the manger, while the kings waste time calling upon Herod to suffer unwanted congratulations." [Page 83 'The Western Way'. VOL 2].

Try ''butter'' to {enlighten?} those first impressions, i.e., many pots {cauldrons?} found in bogs containing same.

Continued: "The richness of the themes within Branwen makes it difficult for the commentator to survey it fully. The reader will have been struck perhaps by the universal elements common to many European folkstories and mythologies, especially in relation to the Greek legends about Achilles family, and to both Norse and Germanic cycles. Although Branwen is the eponymous heroine, the story really turns on the possession of the Cauldron of Rebirth....The cauldron is the prototype of the Grail itself: an 'Otherworldly' vessel whose gifts include variously: rebirth, knowledge, spiritual well as providing 'physical nourishment'....Death both physical and spiritual, is written between the lines of the quest: those who fail are 'slain'; those who win 'die' to the world and are reborn OR initiated into a different and Otherworldly condition." [Page 48/49 'Mabon and the Mysteries of Britain: An Exploration of the Mabinogion' / C. Mathews].

N.B. A group of Pine Martens = 'A Richness'.

Horn of Plenty in relation to the 'Fruit of ones Labours'? Try ''Homer'' / ''feast'' / ''nectar '' {of the 'gods'} i.e., as one example ''Ambrosia'' - to take something further.

Question. A vine? Recall Samson's riddle.

Sweet or Bitter?

Blood of the vine?

"The blood of the vine is the Grail," answered the sculptor, ''but what do men know of it." ['Journey into the Light']. Try ''vegetative''.

And/or {i.e., something extra}: "Are the owners of estates whose sole care is their personal advantage to be put on the same footing as those who have traditional knowledge such as can make the vines of Khonsu flourish extra-ordinarily as well as the magnificent cattle of Amon {Amun}. Among all sages you will find men who claim to possess these gifts and at the same time to have created such a chef d'oeuvre as a colossal statue or the 'building' of a temple." ['Her-Bak'].

''Khonsu'' - or more importantly - what it implies {represents} - in relation to the words in italics. Anything?

That link to the Hebrew equivalent, ''to establish''. One of the two 'Pillars'. Its representation - with the individual in mind. Its main principle. "God will establish in strength those who believe , with the Word. That stands firm, in this world and in the hereafter......." [Quran 14:27].

"God effaces what he pleases and establishes what he pleases, and his is the essence of the book." [Quran 13:39]. Put ''essence'' in the search box.

"These observations lead naturally to a consideration of the subject of man in Ibn al-Arabi's thought, since, within the context of the divine-cosmic polarity, man, and especially 'Perfect Man,' [i.e.,authors definition; in relation to understanding a potential. The full ['whole'] one, relative to each individual. This readers input], constitutes the all important link or medium between the two poles of Reality; the isthmus [barzakh] as al-Arabi calls him. Having called man the link, however, it is necessary to point out that any link is important only so long as it serves to effect 'communications' and relationships between things that are real in themselves. The link itself having no meaning per se, except by reference to the things it links." [Introduction, 'The Bezels of Wisdom'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Think on it relative to such works as 'A Test of Time'.


Pict symbols. 'Mirror' bottom right {S/E?}. 'Flowers' for eyes? within the well known Pict ''Z'' inscription: A flash of lightening? {and/or ''inspiration''?}. Others enlarged elsewhere.

"That which sees through the 'eye', but whom the eye sees not...." [Hindu equivalent]. Find it, compare it, understand it. As with.................

"The eye with which i see 'god', and the eye with which 'god' sees me is the same eye." [Meister Eckhart]. Put ''bridge'' in the usual box.

Refresher: Apply the above to define {in the broader base} - sense of the 'word' {foundation?} - the following: "A special case of the geometric reconciliation of opposites involves the Golden Ratio, or ''the section'' as the Greeks referred to it, which grows from the diagonal of the half-square. Quite a number of vases display its proportions because it offers artisans a particular powerful tool for guiding the viewers attention around a spiral  {'alabaster'?} - of squares towards its ''eye'' - the compositions ''center of gravity'' where all diagonals cross. The architect, teacher, and writer Jay Hambidge rediscovered this geometry and called it 'dynamic symmetry'...." [Page 20 'Alexandria: The Journal of the Western Cosmological Tradition' / D. Fideler].

Try ''vase'' and/or ''static/dynamic''.

"It is precisely the 'Perfect Man' who combines within himself, in harmony, 'Heaven' and 'Earth' within the context of the realization of the Oneness of Being, who is at once the eye by which the divine subject sees Himself and the perfectly polished mirror that reflects the divine light." [Same chapter, same book].

Finally the symbolism and its intent relative in such stories that include 'maidens' in relation to 'knights' and 'swans', as speculated in such books as 'The Cygnus Mystery', [chapter eleven and eighteen].

"According to further information given in the 'Confessio' it can be computed that as he was born in 1378, and lived for 106 years, that is until 1484; his 'tomb' was discovered in 1604, the year when two new stars appeared in the sky in the constellations of Cygnus - the Swan - and Serpentario - the Serpent." [Extract from the book by G. Knight].

''Our constellation is supposed to be represented by the bird figured on an Euphratean uranographic stone of about 1200BC and known on the tablet as the Eagle, The 'Living Eye'...." [Page 56 under 'Aquila' from the book 'Star Names and their Lore']. N.B. Aquila - part of the ''Summer Triangle''. Put that ''triangle'' together with the ''Winter'' one. What symbol do you 'see'? CLUE: Top-down/Bottom-up?

Spirit or Soul? Symbolic or Real?

"Understandably, the 'Divine' does not appear in man in all the infinity of being; and we speak of only an aspect of god, or of a Divine spark, as constituting the essence of the inner life of man. However veiled and masked, in its broader context the human race may also be considered the manifestation of 'god' in the world. And each and every person is an intrinsic part of this divine source of life, the point of essence. Which essential point and source is known at a certain level as the Shekhinah, and at another level as 'Knesset Israel', the divine vitalizing power, giving life to the world. 'Knesset Israel' is the pool in which all the souls in the world are contained as a single essence, although it does not reveal itself as such, for in the world only a glimmer of the 'sparks' of 'holiness' in certain people is revealed. Every soul is thus a fragment of the 'divine' light. As a spark, a part containing something of the whole, the souls essential wholeness cannot be achieved except through effort, through work with the greater whole." [Chapter three [The soul of man] from the book 'The Thirteen Petalled Rose' by A. Steinsaltz. [Emphasis this readers].

Remember the above is only a 'Hebrew' perspective on a 'word' that all cultures in one way or another use directly or otherwise. Indicative of something. That 'something' that according to this subject is relevant to all individuals, regardless of place, time or culture. But only... once made aware of. Can you by now, 'see' what that word is, and what ''it'' relates to?

As briefly touched on all professions have their ’esoteric’ side. Literature has amongst others-Shakespear. As indicated in such books as ‘The secret of Shakespeare'...and ‘The sacred art of Shakespeare’. Both by M.Lings. ‘Midsummer nights dream'...'Twelfth night’...and especially ‘Hamlet’. That eternal story of the ‘nephew’ revenging his ‘fathers death’. The origins of which as explained in such books as ‘Hamlets mill’ by G.Santillana = Horus/Seth/Osiris. Hamlet using the audience as the ‘third person’ to understand his ‘higher self’, [ ‘I / We’. Of Old testament fame ] relation to what his ‘lower self’ is attempting to justify. [Chapter 5, 'The Secret History of the World'].

Side note: The author M. Hedsel uses 'we' and 'us' throughout in his book 'The Zelator'. Coincidence or...?

And/or: ''One stylistic feature that makes the Quran particular effective is that God speaks directly to people {e.g. 56: 57-73} and to the Prophet, often using 'We', the first person plural of majesty, to represent Himself. It involves the readers/listeners by questioning, directing, and urging them, alternating this with information {e.g. 56: 47-74}.'' [Introduction {xx} 'The Qur'an / M. A. S. Abdel Haleem].


"Shakespeare's great philosophical thrust and the great impulse behind the Rosicrucians were to show that the invisible and spiritual is greater than the visible. [Hint, hint, see anything?]. To put it in Rosicrucian terms, Shakespeare gave shape, form and color to 'gods' great world-weaving 'thoughts', so that the human imagination could grasp them." [Chapter 37, 'The Sacred History']. Can you see any keys yet? Try ''Nephew''.

"Water takes on the color of the cup." [Quote by Junayd].

''Vase'' ??

"Let no man think lightly of good., saying in his heart, 'It will not come neigh me'. By the falling of waterdrops a pot is filled; the wise man becomes full of good, even if gathered little by little." Lord Buddha.

Something extra: ''The important point to remember is that 'Saturn/s' colour is a mixture of the three primary colours." {Page 65 of the book by P. F. Case. Vol 1].

While recalling that the symbol for 'Mercury' contains all 'three' aspects of the ''Self'' {i.e., subconscious = 'crescent'. Self consciousness = 'circle'. Cross = four elements and/or physical world etc }. Enlarged elsewhere.

Refresher: "Do not understand that the placing of the crescent symbol at the top {i.e., 'cup' shaped} means that the subconsciousness has been made the superior term. What is meant is that the subconscious has been purified and RAISED so that it becomes the grail to receive the wine of life - the inspiration of spiritual wisdom....Rightly understood, the Mercury sign is one of the most enlightening symbols...." [Pages 21/41 of the book by P. F. Case].

REMEMBER all as a means...?

And/or: "More than one researcher has noted the similarity between the marks found on these 'tjuringas' {Aborigine} and those found at megalith sites: in particular the curious cup and ring markings discovered at a large number of sacred places but never satisfactory explained." [Page 58 'The Western Way' / C+J Matthews].

Try ''Saturn'' and/or ''Imhotep'' as a working example.



Apply all the above to {define?} the following: "The cup markings, which appear to be universal in these Scandinavian sites and which are found occasionally on the walls and even roofs of stone built graves have long been a problem. The idea that they were libation cups, for offering food to the gods, cannot always be accepted on account of their position. Many, of course, in Scotland were used for the offering of milk to the 'Little People', until quite recent times and may be still. However the view is now held widely that many more were intended to represent symbols of a 'goddess' and are to be compared with the 'yoni' and 'lingam' of India...." [Page 87 'GogMagog' / T. Lethbridge].

A more closer to the 'mark' {Key} attempt of gaining an insight into a mindset would be ''foods untouched by fire''. Enlarged elsewhere.

Stone 'implement' - neolithic origin - its use speculated on within the program by N. Oliver {mentioned elsewhere}. Question. When impressed on a surface {rolled?} what impression would it make? Try 'rolled/UNrolled' for a further head-sratch. N.B. Similar round balls found especially N/E Scotland - as speculated upon in 'Secrets of Stonehenge' / PBS America. The understanding of which, determined more by ''the four corners'' i.e., N/E in relation to S/W? Embossed / Debossed?

'Elevated' or just ''upright''?

Exercise..."Another peculiar mystery at Gobekli-tepe is the presence on the exposed bedrock to the S/W of the main enclosures of the large cup like holes {up to six inches in width and depth}. There are dozens of them everywhere. Similar cup marks are to be seen on top of the standing pillars, while clusters of them are found also at other Pre-Pottery Neolithic sites across the region. On asking Klaus Schmidt what he thought these cup marks represented in September 2012, he shrugged his shoulders and said they are found everywhere, often in the company of carved ring marks {'circle'?} like those in Britain. Yet clearly, they did once have a function, and the most obvious solution is that they were receptacles for something, either liquid - blood, beer, milk, or water perhaps - or, more likely, some type of food such as meat. Because they almost always seem to be carved in elevated positions, it appears possible that whatever they contained were offerings to carrion birds such as vultures, crows, or ravens, which might well have played some kind of symbolic function in the rituals taking place inside the sanctuaries {a large number of bones belonging to both the crow and raven have been found within the fill at Gobekli-tepe}. Scavenger birds such as vultures play an important role in the Neolithic cult of the dead, and so gaining their favor in a divinatory manner might well have been important to the success of a ritual...Interestingly enough, divination has been proposed as an explanation for the presence of similar cup marks found on exposed rock surfaces in the area of Mount Ararat in eastern Anatolia. Armenian prehistorians speculate that although the true purpose of the cup marks has now been lost, they were probably ''used by oracles during fortune telling,'' a very {credible?} explanation indeed, which sits well with their possible function at Gobekli-tepe." {From the book 'Gobekli Tepe' by A. Collins. Emphasis, this readers}. Try ''cup'' and/or ''crow/raven'' to see if you agree or disagree.

'Wall of the Crow'?

'For he on honey-dew hath fed; and drunk the milk of paradise." ['Kubla Khan' / S. Coleridge].

'Cup' for a hat?

"Only Peru and Tibet contain large sections of continuous high plateau. Travelers have often noted that the Andean and Tibetan cultures resemble each other in many ways. Geologically, they are the places on Earth that are the closest contact to the sky. The chain of the Andes, the Sierra Madres, and the Rockies run roughly N/W - S/E through the Americas. In fact, we can track the high points northward from the Peruvian Andes through central America, Mexico, the western United States, Alaska, along the North Pole, and down through central Asia, the Himalayas, western Australia, and underneath Antarctica to emerge at the Southern tip of Tierra del Fuego - the southern Andes. Without a topographical globe in hand its hard to picture this, but no one can deny that a circular chain of mountains runs crosswise around the globe, at roughly 60 degrees angle to the equator. If we imagine this mega chain to be the terrestrial counterpart to the Milky Way..." ['Galactic Alignment'].

Question. Higher of the lower {landscape equivalent?}...

magic sq"Before us lies the 25th Path of aspiration that leads to the goal of Tiphareth, whose virtue is Devotion to the great Work. If you first devotion is to anything else then you had better be content to remain where you are. There is honourable service to be given in the Lesser Mysteries but the Great work entails being commissioned to the responsibilities of adepthood . That is, to office in the Greater Mysteries, and the perceptions of evolutionary consciousness rather than those of the personality currently in incarnation. The road to this condition is the 25th path, sometimes called the Path of the Arrow {apothem?} that is represented by a rainbow, the divine bow of promise, and a winged angel pouring an elixir from one vessel to another {'Altar of Witness'?}. It is another version , a transformation of the dancing figure in the emblem of the World, now lifted to a higher arc. Still holding a balance between two forces, but now mixing them in just proportion, as the name Temperance signifies...We now approach the upper reaches of the 25th path, which is where the Lesser mysteries begin to pass into the Greater. For whoever can enter the Temple of Tiphareth as of right as an adept {albeit a minor one} rather than being invited, or as a temporary guest, will of necessity pass into the consciousness of the 'higher self'. This is to enter into a wider air {'Aquarius'?}, and also to experience a change in attitude..." ['Magical Images and the Magical Imagination' / G. Knight].

The clouds bow to meet the flat earth and sea in such an ordered space on all sides and the two poles turn on their valves of ''gold'. And if he moves his dwelling place, his heavens also move wherever he goes and all his 'neighbourhood' bewail his loss. Such are the spaces called earth and such its dimention'.

Continued: "Twentyfive is the square of the sacred number 5 and is therefore used in the center of magic squares. It is also the sum total of 1,3,5,7,and 9 and thus contains all the sacred numbers that can be used in 'magic'. For this reason, 25 candles would be lit so that every number was represented. Medieval Christian exegetes tended to regard 25, the square of 5, as the perfection of the five senses. Alternatively, they explained it as 6x{4+1}, which meant: 'good works on the basis of the 4 Gospels and the faith in one god.' When presented as {3x8}+1, it was interpreted as the sign of the hope for 'resurrection', which is realized through faith in the 1 god who manifests himself as the trinity. But there are also less {'lesser'?} mystical aspects of the 25. The quarter, 25 cents, is still a common coinage of the dollar. Twenty five is frequently used as a round number and serves, as a quarter of a full century, as a fitting number to celebrate silver jubilees." ['Mystery of Numbers'].

So far as the inner world is concerned, the Cup means IN and the Shield means OUT. The Inner Cosmos must have internalities and externalities like any other Cosmos. So with the Cup, we take into ourselves all that we truly love and hold dearest to us, which we want nearest to our essential being. All else we arrange as externalities around the demarcation circle of ''Me and We'' by means of the Shield. This makes the Cup the most ''sacred'' of the instruments, since we should only use it for taking in and pouring forth the very best and finest energies we are capable of containing."

A connection?..."Why Queen Gwenevere should have missed the going on the 'hunt' and have ridden out alone but for a lady in waiting is not revealed by Chretien, any more than he gives a reason for Arthur's decision to call the Hunt of the White Stag in the first place. Indeed perhaps no reason is required, and all is preordained insofar that Arthur's decision and Guenevere's behaviour are crucial to the action of the whole story, initiate it and provide a substratum for its meaning... It is crucial to our story, for not only does it provide initial impetus for the action, but it points up the theme of a challenge to the Queen. At any rate Guenevere is shortly joined by Erec, described as a leading knight of the Round Table, of great fame at the court, although not yet 25 years old. He is fair, brave and courteous and appears very much a courtly fellow, indeed almost a dandy, in ermine mantle, coat of Byzantine flowered silk, well fitting brocade hose and golden spurs, whilst he is unarmed but for a 'sword'. Erec's name is derived from the Breton Guerec, which at some point may have been substituted for the Welsh Gweir - Gweir being the son of Llwych, which means 'lake' in Welch, whilst Erec's father is called King Lac...The flow of these tales is made up from many tributaries."

"Indeed there is an unconscious equivalence between hunter and hunted. In the Christian legend, a stag enters a thick forest in order to draw the soldier hunting it away from his comrades so that the stag can 'hunt the hunter, while he hunts', finally confronting him with a crucifix miraculously sprouting between its antlers. Thus the hunter and the hunted are secretly identical - the seeker and the spiritual goal, as well as the pathway {'ridgeways'?} to it, are one and the same." ['The Book of Symbols' / Taschen. Under the subheading ''Deer'']. Hence...

2nd hint ''Queen'' i.e., the female 'duality' of the male. While recalling that the ONLY female deer to grow antlers is ? Understanding that gives further possible clues to the intent THEREFORE mind set to the purpose of same - found in a cave in Sheffield 13000 years ago. Enlarged elsewhere.

Try ''N. Oliver''. And/or 2:3 {under 'deer'}. Then 5:5 / 5:8

From a different perspective: ''....+7 is reached perhaps, only when the Thames is frozen so that men and animals can safely cross it. The region 1-7 is called the Winter Hemisphere. 1 to -7 the Summer one.'' ['Fludd's Weather Glass' Page 60 'Robert Fludd' / J. Godwin].

Side note: Glaciers {the 'creators' of hills/valleys} move 'backwards' {northward},  to where ''the sun does not set'' - from a southern perspective - in more {pleasing'?} warmer climates {'phases'?}. Caves exposed. The flood waters released moving in the opposite direction. Fresh water creating {'reflecting'?} lakes or 'meandering' rivers or mixing in with the salty sea. A process beginning or ending? Above or below the ''frost zone'' ? {5:9}.


Cheddar gorge.

Question. At what stage {time?] of that retreat 'back to the 'north - was that cave in Sheffield exposed. Could a group of individuals - wanting to ''evolve'' their beliefs have followed that last glaciation as far as they could? Generation after generation. All sharing the same 'ideas'. When were these islands first known as those at the ''back of the north wind''? Where did the likes of Hesiod or Homer or Hecataeus of Abdera {a Greek living in Egypt} get there 'ideas' from? Oral tradition?

Something extra: "The Lapwing, as Cornelius Agrippa, the early 16th century 'occult' philosopher, reminds us: 'Seemeth to have some royal thing and weareth a crown'. I do not know whether Agrippa seriously meant to include the Lapwing among royal birds, but if he did his best authority was 'Leviticus' X1,19. The Lapwing is there mentioned as an unclean, that is to say tabooed, bird in the company of the eagle, the griffin-vulture, the IBIS, the cuckoo, the swan, the kite, the raven, owl, the barnacle goose, {solan goose?}, the stork, heron, and pious pelican. That these taboo's were of non semitic origin is proved by there geographical distribution: several of the birds {Ibis?} do not belong to the heat-belt which is the semitic homeland, and every one of them was sacred in Greece and Italy." [Page 53/4 'The White Goddess' / R. Graves].

''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].

Continued: To understand the significance of the Lapwing try ''Battle of the Trees''.

The horns of the bull {on that mountain side} almost coming together - like a circle - {or cycle}. The pinnacle of something {Al-Qurn?} - a golden embrace - ready for the next stage. Question. Seated on his throne? From a ''standing'' position?

Side note: Hieroglyph of an Ibis bird between two ancient stork birds as seen  on a mountain side South of Karnac { El-Khawy} - an ancient trade route - The ancient symbol of the ''horizon'' sign. Found also in the tomb of the Scorpion King at ABYDOS. That together with the horned bull hieroglyph = ''Royal power equals solar power - The king on earth is as the sun in the sky.'' Many 'bull' skeletons {with horns} found in enclosed walls surrounding the palace of Ramesses at Abydos - placed there with deliberate intention in the Ptolemy era . Ramesses identifying with the Scorpion king as the Ptolemy with Ramesses. This subject being the COMMON factor.

What was found around the corner {'bend'} from Abydos. Within the Qena Governorate. The very first one ever found - that one of the Ptolemies is associated with. Was an expert on.

Try ''Upright'' to get into that MIND SET.

From 90 - 180 as a means....?

Flat top?

Refresher: ''Ancient spiritual traditions link the khu with the crown chakra, or pineal gland located at the tip of the was said to preexist the creation of the world and to be, simultaneously, the final goal of transformed matter {'crocodile'?}.....The khu is depicted as the crested ibis standing before a star- a spark of genius or shining brilliance and/or the divine spark. Represented with its dark green iridescent plumage {drake duck head?}....that seemed to glitter with metallic sparks.''[Page 246 'Dreams of Isis'].

Land of Punt.

From a different perspective: ''I have already said too little and too much about the Stone of the Phiosophers. Why should i not speak more plainly still? Why shouldn't i, too, prise open a small door in the King's shut palace? [ Page 369 'Mercurius' / P. Harpur].

''Open Air''?

Famine Stela. Any plants or gardens?

''The kingdom of the plants can easily be thought of as the nearest neighbour of the kingdom of death. Perhaps the mysteries of transformation and the enigma of LIFE which so torment us are concentrated in the green of the earth, among the trees in graveyards and the flowering shoots springing from their beds. Mary Magdalene, not at once recognising Jesus risen from the grave, took him for the gardner.'' [Page 61 'Russia: Past, Present and Future' / R. Steiner].

Side note: Coriander seed used to describe the ''manna'' that was used in the deserts of the ''wilderness years''. That food a 'given' - against a the fret of a famine. Forty years in relation to the fortytwo nomes within Egypt. As everyone knows. Every culture borrowed from the Egyptian one.

And/or: The desert of Sin {wilderness} encompasses areas from Kadesh in the Sinai Peninsula, up to the Dead Sea and into Petra in South Jordan {''where Aaron is buried''}. That journey that began from the west on the fifteenth day of the 2nd month....And/or: ''It was like coriander seed but white and tasted like wafers made of honey.....Some {an omer's worth} was kept in an urn {'vase?'} within the Tabernacle.''['Day 6: 'Pilgrimage of Grace' / K. Nichols / Magdala / March 2022].

''Missing the Mark''?

The same symbol found as the main 'totem' on their main temple. Question. Where have you seen it before?

His right hand man or stool remover? What would Mother Russia think. Would she join them or erase them?

And/or: The narrator Ramy Romany goes in search of answers to the mummies {the 'cloud people'} found in the Peruvian jungle on the cliff side face of mountains. 'High up in the sky'. All organs taken through the anus {excrement/turd link?} - all found in a sitting position {'seated'/ throne link?} with there hands {'fingers'?} around their face {face to face?}. Described as ''tall and white''. Completely different to the norm. Celtic structures found {circular huts} at least '400' of them . Brian  Foerster {main researcher} listened to the ''oral tradition'' which says they came from across the sea. ['Mummies Unwrapped' / Series 1. Episode 1].

The ''Sea People''?

And/or: ''A cloud by day and a fire by night''.

'The Cloud of UNknowing'.

That eternal combat between positive/negative. Within that overall personnel ‘journey’. Represented by the ‘Great year’. Or its present equivalent. The Precession of the equinox’. Its physical/individual representation within the same, [ ‘Macro’ equivalent ] the Greater / Lesser 'Bear' Constellation. Or as a ‘Millstone’ or ‘Quern stone’, [ ‘Micro’ equivalent ]. Time team links. Always discovered upside down. Symbolic of ‘back to’.

"The equinoxes are the only times when the solar terminator {the ''edge'' between night and day} - is perpendicular to the equator. As a result, the northern and southern hemisphere's are equally illuminated." [Wiki/'equinox']. Try ''boundary'' and/or ''angle'' and/or 90 degrees.

Side note: "Chapter 7 examines Homer's theory of the precession of the equinoxes and explains the astronomical significance of the shield made for Achilles by the crippled smith god, Hephaestus. The shield and armour are allegories for the reorganization that became necessary when Sirius reappeared in the skies of Greece." ['Homer's Secret Iliad']. Enlarged elsewhere.

Fertilizing 'wheat'?

Continued..."The discovery {at Hallan Cemi } of a substantial number of quern stones, used to grind seeds, has led some prehistorians to suggest that the inhabitants of Hallan Cemi were engaged in protoagriculture, or certainly the exploitation of wild cereals. However, very few cereal seeds have been found at the site, casting doubts on this theory. In fact, all the indications are that the main food here, in addition to game meat, consisted of wild lintels, bitter vetch, and nuts." [From the book 'Gobekli-tepe' ]. Try ''bitter/sweet'' / ''wheat'' i.e.,...

"According to the testimony of many myths, the Cosmic Man {enlarged elsewhere] is not only the beginning but also the final goal of all life - of the whole of creation. ''All cereal nature means wheat, all treasure nature means gold, all generation means man,'' says the medieval sage Meister Eckhart. And if one looks at this from a psychological standpoint, it is certainly so. The whole inner psychic reality of each individual is ultimately orientated toward this archetype symbol of the Self." ['Man and his Symbol'. Enlarged elsewhere]. Try ''quern''.

'A grain of wisdom.'

Question. How many grains make a cake?

Funerary cake?


Epona - flanked by two pairs of horses. Domesticity only? Two 'weak' . Four 'strong'? Try ''Homer''.

Analogy {i.e.,wisdom expected to be found within it?}: "So, the images from the Old Stone Age still pose us a series of riddles. Certain aspects of animals were selected for portrayal, and placed in a variety of locations, including the walls of caves and overhanging rocks, boulders and pieces of bone and ivory. Some of the cave art was in large chambers {'box' link?} where a crowd could admire it; some in tiny passages accessible only to one person at a time, after a painful crawl {initiation?}...At El Juyo on the north coast of Spain, excavated in 1979, the cave floor had been prepared as what can only have been a ceremonial center. Five layers of deer bones, burnt vegetation and red ochre were interspersed with cylinders of clay arranged in rosettes {i.e.,'flowers'; therefore 'chakra' link?}. Hence...''and capped with earth of different colours.'' "The whole pile was studded with bone spearpoints and covered with a huge stalagmite slab set on flat stones {horizontal link?}. A few feet away, a rock had been carved into a human face upon one side and that of a snarling feline {'anima' related?} on the other. In many caves, figures were superimposed upon each other in a way that seems deliberate, and were very often paired: horses with bison, ibex with oxen or oxen with mammoths. They were commonly portrayed with parts missing or distorted, and some of the beasts which appear are 'fantastic', such as bears with wolves heads and bison's tails {Sphinx/Griffin etc., link?}. No landscapes are represented, nor {despite its importance to hunter gatherers} any vegetation. On the other hand, animals are the subjects of only just over half of the total body of art. Virtually all the rest consist of geometric patterns..." ['The Pagan Religions of the Ancient British Isles'].

Swages and chisels found on Oak island. As well as a spiral brooch. Three in number. Coincidence?

A working example: {i.e., something hinted at}: "The tunnel was small but well made, with smooth slabs of perfectly fitting stone, lining the interior. {Years later, I was to learn that the tunnel had actually been the remnant of a prehistoric people {i.e., 'giants'} who once inhabited {Tin}tagel's slopes during the 'Time of Legends'}. Down I slid, what must have been {'ten'} yards or so, before emerging onto a shallow ledge {ridge?} about {twenty} feet below the cliff line. {Therefore one's 'horizon' limited?}. There a footpath wound indirectly to the shore {i.e., inverse of the symbolic intention of the 'spiral' i.e., as yet UNmanifested} - completely hidden from above by the overhang."

And/or: ''In December 1908, the British Egyptologist W. M. Flinders Petrie discovered the intact burial of a woman {with long/narrow neck and body}, and child while excavating in western Thebes, opposite the modern city of Luxor - {'child' more than likely a girl - because of spiral 'earings' and bead 'girdle',}. Found north of the road that led to the Valley of the Kings. The grave was not elaborate, just a shallow trench cut into the rock BELOW AN OVERHANG and masked from view by a group of boulders {'grey?}. Considering the simplicity of the burial place, the contents were of unexpected richness {'pine martin'?} and quality.'' [Page 15/22  'Hatshepsut' / same book].

Items included: 'Feathered' designed coffin peculiar to Thebes. SIX Nubian pots - {''placed in 'three' stringed nets/bags at one end of a large wooden pole}. Stone bowl decorated with monkeys; basket containing a horn - an 'eight' petalled one. Together with headrest - made in 3 pieces, octagonal middle, with elephant or hippo horn inlays {triangular in shape}.''

'Horn of Plenty'?

N.B. Elephants imported {'foreign'?}. Hippo's {local}.

And/or: ''The ten frames of the so-called "Hawara Homer," preserved at the Bodleian LibraryOffsite Link (MS. Gr. class. a. 1 [P]) and dated about 150 CE, were discovered lying rolled up under the head of a mummified woman by W. M. Flinders PetrieOffsite Link in the cemetery at HawaraOffsite Link, Egypt.

"William Flinders Petrie excavated at Hawara in 1888. After working in Medinet el-Fayum (Arsinoe) and Biahmu, he moved on to the site south of Arsinoe and took the 60 workers he had already employed at the former sites with him.

"As usual, Flinders Petrie did not give precise indications, as to where the papyri were found on the site. He just mentions that the region north of the pyramid "was the usual place for burials in the early Roman period , when gilt cartonnage busts were used. Papyri from the Ist and IInd cent. AD are also usual in the soil here, and for some way north" (p. 8, no. 11; cf. the map on plate XXV in the book)" ( Link/,Offsite Link accessed 04-27-2014.)

Side note: "Cave art can speak to us like nothing else...Cave art in Britain looked for since cave art found in France, but believed it most unlikely because of conditions in Britain in the same epoch...Those ideas turned on their head when discoveries were made in the cave at Creswell Crags...Pre last ice age - 13000 years ago... the scratchings of the image of a deer...This is the oldest rock art to be found anywhere on these islands...Here we have art that is something a little bit different, and it does give a real connection back to the people that created it - but I rather like the mystery that we will never really know what it means." ['Digging For Britain' / Series 1 - Episode 2].

Question. What do you think?

cave art

Stalactite that once removed could be used as a 'pillar'. The cut off point of which would become its base? A reversal of something? Indicative of? Recall what ''caves'' REPRESENT and who or what are associated with them {if only in their 'infancy' }. Also note the 'position' of the 'heads'. Also, once reversed - any OVERALL facial feature? i.e.,'mouth' in relation to 'womb'?

Continued: From a different perspective: Stalactite in relation to stalagmite? i.e.,"...It is a fact, however that, in the early Neolithic, Stalagmites and stalactites were removed from cave interiors and carried back to Catal Hoyuk, where they were placed in cult shrines alongside statuettes, bucrania, vulture beaks, and painted fresco's of extraordinary beauty and sophistication. So many fragments from caves were found there that British archaeologist James Mellaart, who excavated the site in the 1960's, proposed that the shrines at Catal Hoyuk {i.e., S/W Turkey} might have been the realm of chthonic deities; that is, gods of the underworld." {From the book 'Gobekli-tepe' by A. Collins}.

Recall the position of C. Hoyuk in relation to Gobekli-tepe and others. Enlarged elsewhere. Question. Neolithic equivalent of 'Delphi', i.e.,oracle center?

Egyptian equivalent, the buried 'heads' at the base of certain pillars. Indicative of same. As is the Sphinx 'head' when viewed in perspective relative to the base [i.e.,start point] of the 'pyramid.' [Explained elsewhere ] ’Grinding’ out an understanding; a development; within ones overall ’ journey’. Hence the link to the title...’Hamlets Mill ’. Quran equivalent, Sura six..."Verily, god is the one who cleaves the grain and the wheat kernel asunder, bringing forth the living out of that which is dead". All the above speculated on within the book 'The Source Field Investigations'. D. Wilcock. [Especially chapters six and nineteen]. Understanding this subjects 'framework' gives a further insight into that books research.

N.B. The Mayans had a practice of purposely shaping a child's head in the form of 'an ear of corn'. Try ''ear''.

"Today I see Muhammad ascend. The friend is everywhere, in every action. Love, a lattice. Body, fire. I say, show me the way. You say, put your head under your feet. That way you rise through the stars and see a hundred other other ways to be with me. There are as many as there are flight paths of prayer at dawn." [Poem 17 'Flightpath', taken from the book, 'Rumi: Bridge to the Soul' by Coleman Barks].

''A man touches the earth with his physical feet, but he touches life with his psychological feet... Now a man who understands life only through the evidence of his senses is not a psychological man. He is a sensual man. His mind is based on sense. This is called elsewhere 'the mind of the flesh'. In such a case he thinks from his feet - and has no head."[Part one 'The Mark' by M. Nicoll].

'Feet on firm ground'. Benefit of?

"We are thinking at the edge, where the shoreline of sense meets the wild ocean of mystery." [From the book by T. Freke and P. Gandy]. 'See' the picture; at the 'head' {header?} of each page. Anything?

The author uses those two mental concepts [i.e.,''psychological'' and ''sensual''] to define the differences between exoteric and this subject. And therefore its potential to each individual [i.e.,'higher'/'lower']. Understanding that paragraph [i.e., the part within the whole] explains why many statues were found beyond Abu Simbel...without the heads. Egyptian equivalent with the same principle in mind. North in relation to South. Or more importantly Northeast in relation to Southwest. The beginning of something. Representation of.


Fountain of Neptune in Diafani on the island of Karpathos. 'Trident' and a 'dolphin' ? 'Mettle' of the mind? Question. What aspects would be 'used' to REPRESENT that 'metal' ?

'Teeth', symbolic of same. A link to the word 'grinding'. Especially 'serpent teeth', as indicated throughout in the book, ' The Sirius Mystery'...within the story of Jason and his Argonauts. 'Looking' for the 'golden fleece', just as Gilgamesh went looking for the plant of 'life'. Something 'eternal' being the common factor of both. That process ['development'] of which [ a grinding] can be represented with 'food'. [Food. Vol. 1. 'Gift of Osiris'. W.Darby]. In other words, as a representation of something, with an understanding in mind.... i.e.,as an example, taken from Gurdjieff's ...'fourth way' 'teachings', in relation to...'each moment is the best opportunity'...."Gurdjieff wanted his students to learn how to use the circumstances of each moment - both internal and external - as 'food' for the 'development' of a new state of consciousness".[Part one. 'Wisdom of the Fourth Way'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Think about it, relative to what that 'development'; is in the main; represented by... within a said framework. [Micro/Macro links].

''Her body glows and TINGLES from the crown of the head to her TOES. I like learning about the universe in this way.'' [Page 203 'The Quest of the Rose'].

A 'visual' example?..."Adjacent to Enclosure C's western central monolith is one of the most remarkable T - shaped stones discovered so far at the site. Running down the front narrow edge {in profile? if so, therefore a 'key'} - of pillar 27 is a 3-D predator, a famished quadruped, with a long bushy tail and emaciated body. Its snarling jaws, complete with carved lines signify whiskers, reveal a mouth with razor sharp teeth. That such a feat of artistic expression etc etc...As to the identity of this predator, Schmidt believes it is a feline, a lion most probably. Yet the shape of its body, the large incised teeth, and the long bushy tail, make a case for its being a canine of some description." [From the book by A. Collins].

'In profile' as opposed to 'face on'. The tail end of something begins the process of ?

"The profile of a human being is a special thing for those with eyes to see. The profile reveals the karma to those who know about such things. If you look carefully at any face, you will see in profile the story of past lifetimes...Meanwhile, remember that the profile will speak more easily about the past than will the face turned towards you." ['The Zelator'].

Side note: A {working} example: "...and for this reason this demand is especially important. In remembering about this and in carrying it out, man begins to see sides of himself which he never noticed before." ['In Search of the Miraculous'. Italics, this readers].

Continued..."It is said that the Ennead which was the 'seed and hand of Atum', becomes the 'teeth and lips of Ptah' and gives a name to each thing, bringing it into existence. Divine principles and qualities {the Ennead} can now 'enter into the species of things' - mineral, plant, or animal - and become manifest through them. This is clearly an account of 'creation' by the ''word''. [Extract from the book by L. Lamy].

''Manifest'' in relation to ''logos''. Anything?

And/or: "The image also reminded us of another winged disc of Egypt, which offered a curious parallel with the Venus of the Mayans {enlarged elsewhere}. The interesting thing about this was that it was directly linked with the serpent, at which we have already glanced, called the uraeus serpent by later Greeks. Even in modern times, the uraeus is not hard to locate in Egypt...Preserved on the foreheads of statues - as one example - in ancient Thebes...its head poised forward as if ready to strike...

Right to left therefore anticlockwise with 'left' eye showing. All as a means...? Recall Nefertiti's 'left' eye. Question. What would left-right be represented with?

Continued..."It is the transformed eye of the god Atum, in the form recounted in the ancient Creation myth...Usually explained by Egyptian archaeologists as being symbolic of the ''solar disc'' - what ever that might mean...The placing of this serpentine eye between the ordinary eyes explains why it is sometimes called the 'Third eye'...It is a representation of the eye of Atum...Or what the Oriental esotericists call the ajna chakra..." ['The Zelator'].

A working example, i.e.,apply the above to define something {inner?} i.e.,something that can be worked out by objective analysis {in profile?}: "...we find it remarkable that in ancient times the Western astronomers of Greece located the tail of their Taurus, the Bull, precisely on the Pleiades. The Mayan cult of the rattle snake, with its tail on the Pleiades, and the Persian Mythraic cult of the Bull, with its tail on the Pleiades, seemed to meet in a most extraordinary way. Just what was this connection between the Middle East and South America in ancient times? [same book]. Try ''Pleiades''.

"Now, ''the magnificent gifts'' {10+7?} of which it is a matter here are not the magical phenomena but rather revelations in the inner life of intuition and inspiration." [Extract from the book by Tomberg. 'Letter 17' ]. Recall how those two 'aspects' [highlighted] can only be achieved - and their purpose - relevant to an understanding - if only in relation to a subject.

Egyptian equivalent...Heliopolis and Memphis in relation to Hermopolis and Thebes. Something unknown becoming known. Shadow in relation to light ,{and/or ''anima''}.

ALL AS A MEANS TO AN {AWAKENING?}. Question. A grain of wisdom?

'Anima Mundi' ?

"One can already sense from these considerations the role of numbers as generative powers, {''manifested'' link} and thus their relation to the names of the Theban sanctuaries. There exists, however, a still more striking demonstration of this relation: a hymn consecrated to Amun-Re, constructed on a series of 'plays on words' and on numbers. This hymn {Leyden Papyrus 1, 350} is composed of 27 stanzas, numbered with the first nine numbers, then with nine tens, then with nine hundreds. The particular character of each stanza is determined by the implications associated with its number. A stanza beginning with One contains an evocation of the 'First Time', the Creation, and associates Thebes with that event. The great temple of Amun itself is said to be 'the place of the origin and outlet of the Nun', clearly alluding once more to the primordial hill and therefore to the beginning of all generation or creative enumeration {'manifested'?}. Thebes is said to be, more exact, or more enumerated, than any other city." [Extract from the book by L. Lamy. Emphasis, this readers]. Try ''27''. Then ''wheat''.

Hebrew equivalent = Ain-sof ? 'Gap' as a common factor to both? Therefore more UNmanifested {top/down} than manifested {bottom/up?}.


Manna from heaven?

That final link to a representation of same, as the 'food' of the gods, i.e.,sometimes called Soma or ambrosia or the Hebrew equivalent, Manna. All as a representation of something, i.e.,relative to an understanding. Hence the link to, "a new state of consciousness". Breathing easier? It is a glimpse of the goal which a disciple [or student. This readers input] must aspire..." [Extract from the book by S. Ashby].

"The 'teacher' brings divine food in the form of wisdom teachings which uplift the mind by relieving the burden of pain and sorrow which weighs down the soul of a human being due to ignorance and negativity. The 'divine' food is the taste of divine glory."

Something to ponder on {i.e.,addition keys revealed}: "In order to approach an understanding of Ancient Egypt, it is necessary to eliminate the infantile notions which have been expressed with regard to Pharaonic thinking as a whole...We must examine the multitude of symbols which animate the entire Pharaonic Empire and form its treasure. The choice of these symbols is extremely strict. Pharaonic sages will depict a fly in order to speak of the volatile, a gold bee in order to speak of honey - that predigested product which Greek mythology seeks to find in Hymettus in order to make the hydromel of the gods. These are accurate symbols found in the title of nobles {the fly} or of kings {the bee}." ['Sacred Science']. To enlarge further try ''essenes''.

Side note: Great sage Hesy {third dyn.} = Grand Master of the Fly.

Analogy, with same principle in mind - but different time and space period: "We strolled later through the sacred precincts, halting in a tamarisk grove. The manna characteristically exuded by this tree was symbolic of the heavenly food Master Mahasaya was bestowing..." [Extract from the book 'Autobviography of a Yogi' ].

Question. Why a tamarisk tree?

And/or: A working example i.e., something hinted at OTHER than the obvious; as a means....?: "The three tiny eyes of the worker bees originate deep from within their bodies....These eyes have not been exposed to the external effects of the suns influence. Because the new queen, having been ''born of the sun'', brings new sunlight into the beehive with her own 'body', the workers with their tiny eyes suddenly begin to ''see''; I would like to say, they become clairvoyant and cant stand to see the light emanating from the new queen. The entire horde begins swarming. It is as if they are 'afraid' of the new queen because she seems to 'blind' them...." [Page 14 'Bees' / Rudolf Steiner].

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