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 fulfilment 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.''

''Truth is stranger than fiction.''

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?


Cup marks. {'northern' end}. 'Pitted'?

A contemporary example: ''Places where the Meloksewoch lived, experienced notable events, or were buried often became pilgrimage destinations for the Beta Israel {'ancestors'}. For example a religious leader named Abba Gan is believed to have lived and been buried on a hilltop at the foot of the Zawila Ridge below the Wagara Plateau, seperate from any known Beta Israel villages. This hilltop became among the best-known Beta Israel holy sites. On the hill top evidence found of an enclosure, as well as basalt grinding stones {'querns'?}, which members of the Beta Israel community say were used to prepare food by those who made the pilgrimage there.

Good or bad?

These pilgrims would purify themselves by eating raw chickpeas and immersing themselves in water. A Beta Israel woman named Mucet Makwannen, who says she was healed of an illness at the site before migrating to Israel, explained the ritual to researchers.'One eats chickpeas, peas, and broad beans without cooking them. They are eaten with little salt until one has a good or bad dream. If these things are not observed, one is shown in the dream bad animals, dangerous reptiles. If one goes clean and pure, one has good dreams and returns home healthy and whole. Another holy site.....'' [Page 61 'Archaeology' / Jan-Feb 2023].

Quern-stones are stone tools for hand-grinding a wide variety of materials. They are used in pairs. The lower stationary stone of early examples is called a saddle quern, while the upper mobile stone is called a muller, rubber or handstone. The upper stone was moved in a back-and-forth motion across the saddle quern. Later querns are known as rotary querns. The central hole of a rotary quern is called the eye, and a dish in the upper surface is known as the hopper. A handle slot contained a handle which enabled the rotary quern to be rotated.[1] They were first used in the Neolithic era to grind cereals into flour. The upper stones were usually concave while the lower ones were convex.''

An old Gaelic proverb is "The quern performs best when the grindstone has been pitted."

Pearl of the Atlantic.

When the north wind blows. Heading south? Female aspect? 'Hive' of activity?

An .ancient working example: ''The self-generated Ra is growing old. Mankind plots against him when his bones: 'were like electrum, his flesh like gold, and his hair was like lapis lazuli', {i.e., all made from 'fire'}. Sends down his Eye as Hathor to quell the rebellion {in the female form of Sekhmet}. A slaughter ensues. Ra regrets. Comes up with a 'trickster' ploy of 7000 JARS of beer made from: 'red ochre from Yebu {Elephantine} to be ground up by the high priest of Heliopolis and for the barley to be crushed {'bruised'?} by maidservants'. Ra appeased. Leaves for his ''palace in the stars'' on the back of Nut, the Heavenly Cow. Two 'fields' are created - the 'Field of Offerings' and the 'Field of Reeds', which are for the blessed dead. Reordering takes place. Nut becomes the sky supported for the FIRST time by the eight Heh gods, two per leg, while a larger Shu {air} supports her belly. There are two solar barques {'sailing' ships} travelling across UNDER her belly: one shows the sun god Ra standing on board; the other is positioned under her udders, with Ra seated in a cabin. The Heh gods are the 'infinite ones' - the hieroglyph means 'millions of years'....'' [Page 44 'Ancient Egypt' / July-August 2023].

Question. Altar of Witness and Altar of Sacrifice { i.e., opposite end on the same pole}?

Tent or May pole?

"It was early summer, and I was on the verge of turning 40. I found myself entertaining a recurring daydream of escaping from time. I would be hustling my son out the door to get him to school, or walking briskly to work on the day of a deadline, or castigating myself for being online when I should have been methodically and efficiently putting words on paper, and I would have this vision of myself as a character in a video game discovering a secret level. This vision was informed by the platform games I loved as a child – Super Mario Bros, Sonic the Hedgehog and so on – in which the character you controlled moved across the screen from left to right through a scrolling landscape, encountering obstacles and adversaries as you progressed to the end of the level. In this daydream, I would see myself pushing against a wall or lowering myself down the yawning mouth of a pipe, and thereby discovering this secret level, this hidden chamber where I could exist for a time outside of time, where the clock was not forever running down to zero."

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].

Side note: ''The term 'Impressionism' came about because of Monet's Water Lilies {nympheas}. I heard that one on  'Pointless'....'' ['T' on 'Salvage Hunters' / S8 EP5].

The first series of "Water Lilies," a total of 25 {'twentyfive'} canvases, was exhibited at the Galerie Durand-Ruel in 1900. This was followed nine years later by a second series of forty-eight canvases. "These landscapes of water and reflection have become an obsession," wrote Monet on August 11, 1908. "This is beyond the strength of an old man, and yet I want to express what I feel. I have destroyed some of the canvases. I begin once again. ... I hope something will come of all this effort."

Continued: ''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/father think? Some say documents changed when in KGB. Mother a prostitute in the Ukraine - because father a homosexual. Fake news? Wiping those memories away?

"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...

Does he speak for Mother Russia, Father Russia or just from his own appetites?

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

Question. Are all found near rivers rather than seas?

'Head of the Corner'? Bird in flight? 'Thumb' to enlarge.

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:

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].

A work in progress: ''In southern Turkey's Amuq Valley, a curious one-inch-tall lead figurine unearthed in a grain silo at a rural Bronze Age site known as Toprakhisat Hoyuk. A resilient river system, making it a haven in dry periods....Gives a glimpse into how villagers dealt with drought conditions in 2000BC....Very similar to the Mesopotamian foundation pegs, conical or nail shaped objects, inscribed with dedications to the gods and placed under walls of important buildings.''

"The cache of statues was not found at Kerma, however, but at another settlement, now known as Dukki Gel, a few kilometres away. Dukki Gel (a Nubian term meaning ‘red mound’) is commonly believed to be the site of the ancient city of Pnubs. There had been a temple of Amun at Pnubs, which experienced much the same fate as the Temple of Amun at Gebel Barkal. It was founded by Thutmose III, and converted to a temple of Aten worship by Akhenaten (it is one of the most southerly versions of an Aten temple), before being rededicated to Amun during the Nineteenth Dynasty. We saw several examples of talatat blocks in the museum that were found in situ at the site. Having been largely abandoned during the Ramesside era, the temple was restored by the Nubian rulers of the Twenty-fifth Dynasty.

The settlement of Pnubs continued to be inhabited by later Napatan rulers until an invasion of Kush by the Twenty-sixth Dynasty king Psamtek II (documented on his ‘Victory Stela’ at Kalabsha) forced the Kushite king Aspelta to move the focus of his kingdom further south towards the relative safety of the city of Meroë. It was possibly during this invasion that the many statues of various Napatan kings were mutilated and carefully buried at both Dukki Gel and Gebel Barkal. When they were first analysed, it became apparent that they had been intentionally damaged using a bronze chisel. The almost perfect state of conservation of the stone surfaces also indicated that very little time elapsed between the destruction of the statues and their burial. It was most probably Aspelta – who reigned for a further 20 years after the invasion of Psamtek II – who ordered their careful burial on hallowed ground."

"According to relevant inscriptions, Aspelta was selected as ruler by a committee of twentyfour religious and military leaders. He then set out north to Napata to be selected as king by the gods and crowned."

The Bear. A 'She' bear. ''Train of thought''? ''Station of no station''?

And/or: ''Archaeologists rarely unearth the remains of large predators such as leopards, lions, and bears. But some wondered if by looking at a large number of sites over thousands of years, they could identify evidence that ancient people hunted them....Leopard bones were relatively numerous at neolithic period {9700-4700BC}. - but were vertually non-existent in later Copper and Bronze Age {4700-1200BC} where lion and bear bones prevailed....''You would not expect to see a pattern if these figures were random encounters.''

The hypothesis is: ''It reflects the changing symbolic importance of large predators over time.''

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'].

"In the middle of all that prohibition the legacy that Al Capone left has got nothing to do with booze. Its the sell by date of a bottle of milk! It was during the depression when the schools were bankrupt. Capone donated a million dollars for the school children on the CONDITION that the date was stamped on the bottle - because he remembered how he hated the sour milk he was given as a child. AND THAT EXISTS TO THIS DAY. Isn't that the strangest thing?" ['Billy Connolly's Route 66' / S1 EP1].  R.I.P.

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}.

"Oatmeal is a preparation of oats that have been de-huskedsteamed, and flattened, or a coarse flour of hulled oat grains (groats) that have either been milled (ground)rolled, or steel-cut. Ground oats are also called white oats. Steel-cut oats are known as coarse oatmeal, Irish oatmeal, or pinhead oats. Rolled oats were traditionally thick old-fashioned oats, but can be made thinner or smaller, and may be categorized as quick oatmeal or instant oatmeal depending on the cooking time required, which is determined by the size of the oats and the amount of precooking."

''....the sacred kings of Bronze Age Ireland, who were solar kings of a most primitive type , to judge by the taboos which bound them....were buried beneath these barrows; but their 'spirits' went to Caer Sidi, the castle of Ariadne, namely Corona Borealis. Thus the pagan Irish could call Newgrange 'Spiral Castle'.....A revolving wheel before the door of a castle is common in Goidelic legend. According to Keating , the magic fortress of the enchantress Blanaid {'primrose' link?} - in the Isle of Man, was protected by one - Nobody could enter UNTIL IT WAS STILL." [Page 103, 'White Goddess' / R. Graves].

The 'middle' way.

"There is a cycle in each day, there is a cycle in each hour; where water and fire interact, this is a cycle. One interaction is the "revolving of Heaven." As long as you are unable to stop the mind directly, as a consequence there are times of interaction and times of non-interaction. Yet the revolving of Heaven never stops for a moment. If you are able to join yin and yang in tranquillity, the whole earth is positive and harmonious; in the right place in your central chamber, all things expand to fulfilment. This is the method of "bathing" spoken of in alchemical classics. What is it if not the great cycle? {26000?}." [Page 58 'The Secret of the Golden Flower' / T. Cleary].

This evidence is supported by Welsh folklore and there is more than a hint of it in Ireland. In all cases the victim was chosen by means of the burned piece of festive pancake."

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'?}.

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?

Question. Conspiracy obsessives?

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


Objective or subjective?

"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.

"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. And/or: ''The Latin word for 'alive' is Viper.'' ['The Chase'].

"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''...."

"Your tympanic membrane (eardrum) is a thin, circular layer of tissue that separates your outer ear from your middle ear. Your eardrum plays an important role in hearing. It also protects your middle ear from dirt, bacteria and debris."

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.

"Christ is shown here surrounded by four angels. The original tympanum (a semi-circular space above a door) was part of Shobdon Church, which was demolished in the 18th century. Its two doorways were re-erected in Shobdon Park as a folly – an outdoor ornamental ‘ruin’. This copy was made from the folly in the 1850s. It was slightly embellished by the caster, as the original carving was badly weathered by then." N.B. Shobdon near the Welsh border.

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?

Side note: "Tympanum: Loosely, the area between an arch and the springing line of the arch. Most commonly used to describe the area above a door and the arch that supports the doorway opening."


"The tympanum is also commonly referred to as the eardrum. The tympanic membrane or the eardrum is a thin layer of cone-shaped tissue that separates the outer ear from the middle ear. It facilitates hearing by transmitting the sound vibrations from the air to the bones in the middle ear."

"Shobdon is a village and civil parish in Herefordshire, England, about 15 miles north of Hereford, six miles west of Leominster, and 2 miles southwest of the Mortimer's Cross. According to the 2001 census, the parish population was 769, consisting of 386 males and 383 females.[1] The population had increased to 816 by the time of the 2011 census. The parish includes the hamlets of Hanbury Green, Uphampton, Easthampton and Ledicot.

In the 17th century the village of Shobdon was run by the Bateman family (hence the Bateman Arms) who lived at Shobdon Court.

Shobdon church is St John the Evangelist, north of the village. It has a direct connection to Horace Walpole's Strawberry Hill in Twickenham and the members of the "Committee of Taste" which strongly influenced its design."

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."

Above or below the navel? Fire or water? Happy or sad.

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'....''

''In cookery bread that does not rise properly is said to be sad.''

Continued: ''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].

''Foreign spirit''?

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 {carried? By sledge/pallet?}. 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].

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].

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."

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'.

A working example: ''Scotland loves to celebrate Hogmanay (New Year's Eve), and along with belting out the lyrics to “Auld Lang Syne,” many Scots participate in a tradition called first footing. The first person to cross the threshold of a house on January 1 is called the first footer. Stemming back to the time of the invading Vikings in the 8th and 9th century, it is believed that the first person to enter a house, the “first foot”, can bring luck – or misfortune – for the year ahead. In Scottish tradition good luck comes in the form of a tall, dark-haired man being the first footer....A tall fair haired person was deemed unlucky. A throwback to the Viking days.... In many areas, the first-foot should bring with him symbolic gifts such as coal, bread, salt, silver, coins, whisky, {or black buns?}. Food and drink will be given to the first-foot and any other guests..... Open the door for the First Foot. Have your First Foot step over the threshold saying: ”A Happy New Year and Good Tidings to you and yours”.

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.

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."

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."

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.

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.

"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?].

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...."

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



Aberfoyle supposedly originates from the Brittonic Celtic, aber poll or aber phuill (Scottish Gaelic, Obar Phuill), meaning (place at the) mouth of the Phuill Burn (the Pow Burn enters the River Forth at Aberfoyle). Historically, alternative spellings such as Abirfull, Aberfule, Aberfoill and Aberfoil have been recorded before the current spelling became accepted by the 20th century. The river-name is from either Gaelic poll or Brittonic pol, both of which mean 'pool, sluggish water'

Siberia means ''sleeping land.''

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].

Side note: The town is situated on the River Forth at the foot of Craigmore (387 m or 1,270 ft high). Since 1885, when the Duke of Montrose constructed a road over the eastern shoulder of Craigmore to join the older road at the entrance of the Trossachs pass, Aberfoyle has become the alternative route to the Trossachs and Loch Katrine; this road, known as the Duke's Road or Duke's Pass, was opened to the public in 1931 when the Forestry Commission acquired the land.

Loch Ard, about 2 miles (3 kilometres) west of Aberfoyle, lies 40 m (130 ft) above the sea. It is 3 mi (5 km) long (including the narrows at the east end) and 1 mi (1.5 km) broad. Towards the west end is Eilean Gorm (the green isle), and near the north-western shore are the falls of Ledard. The loch's northern shores are dominated by the mountain ridge of Beinn an Fhogharaidh (616 m or 2,021 ft). Two miles (three kilometres) northwest of Loch Ard is Loch Chon, at 90 m (300 ft) above the sea, 1+14 mi (2 km) long and about 12 mi (800 m) broad. It drains by the Avon Dhu to Loch Ard, which is drained in turn by the Forth.


Continued: "The term in Oriental literature for what we call 'etheric body' is Linga Sharira. Thus it is an extract of Linga Sharira that man takes with him from incarnation to incarnation. Buddha says: At birth, the human being brings with him, in his Linga Sharira, everything it contains from his former incarnations; it is inscribed there." [Page 64 'The Gospel of St. Luke: Lecture Three' / R. Steiner].

Linga sharira, or etheric double, designates, in theosophy, the 2nd principle in man's septenary constitution, which is slightly more ethereal than the physical body. 


Linga sharira is the subtle body within Hinduism’s three-body philosophy. From Sanskrit, linga translates to “reason,” “characteristic” or “conclusion,” and sharira means “body.” This body is considered to contain all vital functions and keeps the physical (gross) body alive. It is believed to exist after an individual dies and operate as a medium for reincarnation.

Within a spiritual practice, yogis seek to balance the three bodies through pranayama, meditation and asana.

In a different FORM. Triple form?

In Hinduism, an individual is considered composed of three bodies: the karana sharira (causal body), linga sharira (subtle body) and karya sharira (gross body). These three bodies are connected, and a person functions best when they are in harmony with one another.

The linga sharira is made up of the pranamaya kosha (vital life breath), manomaya kosha (mind) and the vijnanamaya kosha (intellect). It includes the five organs of sense, the organs of action (genitals, anus, hands, legs and speech), the five vital breaths, as well as wisdom and intellect.

The three-body concept is an important core belief in Indian philosophy and in yoga. If these three bodies become unbalanced, it can cause negative effects such as disease and/or confusion.

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.

An unbelievable feat of ancient architecture, The Wall of the Crow is 656 feet long, 32 feet high and 32 feet at the base. Standing near the Sphinx, this ancient wall was constructed in the 4th Dynasty of Egypt and the true purpose still remains unknown.

A working example: The First Key is that which opens the dark prisons in which the Sulphur is shut up: this is it which knows how to extract the seed out of the body, and which forms the Stone of the philosophers by the conjunction of the spirit with the body - of sulphur with mercury. Hermes has manifestly demonstrated the operation of this First Key by these words: In the caverns of the metals there is hidden the Stone, which is venerable, bright in colour, a mind sublime, and an open sea. This Stone has a bright glittering: it contains a Spirit of a sublime original; it is the Sea of the Wise, in which they angle for their mysterious Fish. But the operations of the three works have a great deal of analogy one to another, and the  philosophers do designedly speak in equivocal terms, to the end that those who have not the lynx's eyes may pursue wrong, and be lost in this labyrinth, from whence it is very hard to get out. In effect, when one imagines that they speak of one work they often treat of another.

Which represents white and black?

Take heed therefore, not to be deceived here; for it is a truth, that in each work the Wise Artist ought to dissolve the body with the spirit; he must cut off the Raven's head, whiten the Black and vivify the White; yet it is properly in the First operation that the Wise Artist cuts off the head of the Black Dragon and of the Raven. Hence, Hermes says. What is born of the Crow is the beginning of this Art. Consider that it is by separation of the black, foul, and stinking fume of the Blackest Black that our astral, white, and resplendent Stone is formed, which contains in its veins the blood of the Pelican. It is at this First Purification of the Stone, and at this shining whiteness, that the work of the First Key is ended.

He is the king who introduced the royal title Sa-Rê (meaning “Son of Ra”) and the first to connect his cartouche name with the sun god Ra.

Beginning or end?

There is yet another sense in which this idea may be interpreted. As spirit is always in all systems of symbolism considered to be white in colour, pure in nature, and ubiquitous in its operation, so its opposite, the body and the personality, is symbolized by the colour black. By the decapitation of the Raven, a black bird, enjoined by Eudoxus, is meant a separation in understanding (thus the name of Alchemy, the Spagyric or separative art) of the head - the higher spiritual and intellectual principles - from the lower part of the body, the world of conflicting desires and instincts. In Splendor Solis, by Solomon Trismosin, there is a fine elaborate drawing in which is shown a raven with a black body but a white head, emphasizing this idea. It is the mystical death of the body. This can again be interpreted in the light of the quotation on a former page. That is to say, that the ancients considered two deaths to be possible. The one is the natural death which occurs to all men at the close of their particular span of life. This is involuntary and inevitable. But there is another death which the sages and saints cultivate, inasmuch as it culminates in life and in fullness of spiritual perception. This is the death induced." ['The Philosophers Stone' / I. Regardie].

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.

The zodiac is a belt-shaped region of the sky that extends approximately 8° {'eight'} north and south (as measured in celestial latitude) of the ecliptic, the apparent path of the Sun across the celestial sphere over the course of the year....The English word zodiac derives from zōdiacus,[5] the Latinized form of the Ancient Greek zōdiakòs kýklos (ζῳδιακός κύκλος),[6] meaning "cycle or circle of little animals". Zōdion (ζῴδιον) is the diminutive of zōon (ζῷον, "animal").[7] The name reflects the prominence of animals (and mythological hybrids) among the twelve signs.

Any lynx? Spots and stripes?

The full name of the city and municipality is Santo Domingo Tehuantepec. "Tehuantepec" comes from Nahuatl and has been generally regarded to mean "wild animal (tecuani) hill (tepec)". The name was given to the area by the Aztecs, purportedly because of the ferocity of the native Zapotec warriors they encountered there. The Zapotec name for the area is Guie-Ngola, or Large Hill/Rock, with the city name being Guisi’si Gui.[2][9] Santo Domingo was added by Bartolomé de las Casas as he passed by in honor of the Dominican church was had already been established here. From pre Hispanic times, the settlement has been represented by an Aztec glyph, the earliest example of which comes from the Guevea Codex, also known as the Zapotec Codex. This glyph represents a hill with a jaguar, an ancient totem animal throughout MesoAmerica. Thus, the "wild animal" component of the hill's name may actually be related to a recognition of an ancient religious meeting site associated with the symbol of the jaguar. The Nahuatl word "tehuan" actually means "among the people" or "a gathering", i.e. a meeting place.''

The hill is divided into sixtysix parts and each part has a circle.[9]

There are many legends and myths associated with the Chinese zodiac throughout history, and different versions and stories are prevalent in different locations. So, why were twelve animals included in the Chinese zodiac calendar, and how did the Chinese zodiac order come about? Let’s revisit the most popular version of the story today. Why was there a race? Long ago, The Jade Emperor of China thought that there should be a means to measure time. On his birthday, he announced that there will be a swimming race. The first twelve animals to cross the fast-flowing river would be declared the champions, and each would be assigned a year of the zodiac.

And/or: The alternative name - for the Lynx constellation {now in disuse} was the Tiger - and with others it was the Little Fox with the Goose." [Page 280]. All as a means...? 'Spots and stripes'?

How the rat tricked the ox and took first place: All of the animals formed a line along the riverbank. The rat and the cat, who were best friends, were concerned since they couldn’t swim. They were astute enough to ask the hardworking ox to transport them across the river. The ox agreed and let them ride on his back. When the ox gained the lead, the rat and cat leaped up and cheered. They were almost there when the rat shoved the cat into the water, leaving him to struggle. The rat won the race by leaping off the ox’s head and onto the bank just as the ox was about to win. The rat was admired by the Jade Emperor, who named the year of the zodiac after him. The unfortunate ox was duped into coming in second place, and the second year of the zodiac was named after him. The tiger struggled while the rabbit went with the flow: 

Fire AND water.

Shortly later, the tired tiger battled his way back to the riverbank to finish third. Swimming against strong currents across the river had been a huge challenge for him. As a result of his efforts, the emperor named the third year after him. Meanwhile, the rabbit, who hadn’t swum over at all, was the next to arrive. He’d jumped across some stepping stones before discovering a floating log that transported him to land. As a result, the fourth year was named after him by the Emperor. The dragon helped the other animals A benevolent dragon then flew down to grab fifth place. Despite his ability to fly, he did not win the race since he had to assist the other animals in crossing. The emperor was moved by his kindness and named the fifth year of the zodiac after him. The snake used the horse to get 6th place. The sound of the horse’s hooves was the next thing the Jade Emperor heard. A clever snake suddenly wriggled out from behind one of the horse’s hooves just as he thought the horse would be the next animal to come. The horse was so taken aback that he leaped backward, allowing the snake to claim sixth place in the race. The unlucky horse had to settle for seventh place.

How teamwork made the dream work for the goat, monkey, and rooster

Soon later, a raft came, carrying the goat, monkey, and rooster. They told the Emperor how they had shared the raft that the rooster had discovered. The goat and monkey had pulled the raft to the shore after clearing weeds. The monarch was overjoyed that the animals had collaborated. He then declared that the goat would be the eighth zodiac animal, the monkey would be the ninth, and the rooster would be the tenth.

A dog-ear refers to a corner of a page that has been folded over, resembling a dog’s ear. People often do this to mark a specific place in a book, either intentionally or accidentally due to careless use....Dogs communicate their emotions through various ear positions....Fully upright ears indicate alertness and attentiveness to the surroundings3.

The dog and pig got distracted along the way. The dog was the next animal to be finished. The Jade Emperor was perplexed as to why the dog was so late given that he was a skilled swimmer. The dog stated that he wanted to take a bath because of the clear water. The Emperor shrugged and named the eleventh year after the dog.  There was just one spot remaining in the zodiac, and the Emperor wondered when the last winner would arrive. Finally, he heard the boar grunt. The boar admitted that he was late because he had eaten and slept while on his journey. Despite this, the Emperor congratulated the boar and named the last year of the zodiac after him. The cat did not make it: The cat, who had been thrown into the water by the rat, climbed out, but it was too late to have a year named after him. He was furious with the rat, and cats have never been pals with rats since. Following the race, the Chinese Zodiac began a cycle of years named after the aforementioned 12 animals."

Elizabeth of the Trinity, OCD (FrenchÉlisabeth de la Trinité), born Élisabeth Catez (18 July 1880 – 9 November 1906), was a French Discalced Carmelite, a mystic, and a spiritual writer. She was known for the depth of her spiritual growth as a Carmelite as well as bleak periods in which her religious calling was perceived to be unsure according to those around her; she however was acknowledged for her persistence in pursuing the will of God and in devoting herself to the charism of the Carmelites.[1]

Elizabeth was a gifted pianist and had strong feelings for the Carmelite charism. Of that experience as a professed religious she wrote in a letter: "I can't find words to express my happiness. Here there is no longer anything but God. He is All; He suffices and we live by Him alone" (Letter 91).[1]

Pope John Paul II celebrated her beatification in Paris on 25 November 1984; Pope Francis approved her canonization on 3 March 2016. The date was decided at a gathering of cardinals on 20 June 2016 and she was canonized as a saint on sixteen October 2016.

The ''four'' represent a totality of the mind {animus i.e., logos}, which here, would be better translated as consciousness.''  [Page 167 'Alchemical Studies' / C. G. Jung].


A working example: In the tomb of Tutankhamun which has three main chambers - to the left of the first one can be seen the wheels of chariots {all in pieces} moving from left to right in an ARC towards the sarcophagus chamber - which is at RIGHT ANGLES to it. The HORIZONTAL body of Tutankhamun when stood up in an UPRIGHT position would come face to face with the golden collared dog Anubis which is itself in front of a golden mantle {'hearth'?}. The body of Tutankhamun would then have to turn RIGHT to come back out of that 'darkness' to ASCEND that original passageway {in the MIDDLE of that first chamber} BACK into the Light.

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'.

Polished 'stone' found within a labyrinth at Saqqara. 24 or 25? as a means...

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'].

"If surviving Linear B clay tablets can be trusted, the names po-se-da-wo-ne and Po-se-da-o ("Poseidon")[14] occurs with greater frequency than does di-u-ja ("Zeus"). A feminine variant, po-se-de-ia, is also found, indicating a lost consort goddess, in effect the precursor of Amphitrite....Poseidon was the chief god at Pylos."

Linear A ?

The Palace of Nestor (Modern Greek: Ανάκτορο του Νέστορα) was an important centre in Mycenaean times, and described in Homer's Odyssey and Iliad as Nestor's kingdom of "sandy Pylos".[1]


Resting on the handle of the {'iron'?} trident. 'Stillness'?

The palace featured in the story of the Trojan War, as Homer tells us that Telemachus: went to Pylos and to Nestor, the shepherd of the people, and he received me in his lofty house and gave me kindly welcome, as a father might his own son who after a long time had newly come from afar: even so kindly he tended me with his glorious sons.".....The site is the best preserved Mycenaean Greek palace discovered. The palace is the primary structure within a larger Late Helladic era settlement, once probably surrounded by a fortified wall. The palace was a two-storey building with store rooms, workshops, baths, light wells, reception rooms and a sewage system."

Solid foundations?

And/or: Theseus is sometimes described as the son of Aegeus, King of Athens, and sometimes as the son of the god Poseidon....The six entrances to the underworld, more commonly known as the Six Labours....The sixth bandit {'thief'?} was Procrustes the Stretcher, who had two beds, one of which he offered to passers-by in the plain of Eleusis. He then made them fit into it, either by stretching them or by cutting off their feet. Since he had two beds of different lengths, no one would fit. Theseus once again employed Procrustes' own method on him, cutting off his legs and decapitating him with his axe."

Recall the toes of Tutankhamun.

Refresher: ''The Vikings saw the Pole Star as a nail, which the heavens revolved around. The only culture to describe Orion as a woman - the goddess Frigg. A Spindle weaver, weaving garments for all.'' ['Mirthy'].


Iron key?

"Procrustes had a stronghold on Mount Korydallos at Erineus, on the sacred way between Athens and Eleusis.[3] There he had a bed, in which he invited every passer-by to spend the night, and where he set to work on them with his smith's hammer, to stretch them to fit. In later tellings, if the guest proved too tall, Procrustes would amputate the excess length; if the guest was too short Procrustes would stretch them until they died; nobody ever fit the bed exactly.[4] Procrustes continued his reign of terror until he was captured by Theseus, travelling to Athens along the sacred way, who "fitted" Procrustes to his own bed.....

E-longa-ted: "Long in relation to width."      'Giant' ? N-S OR S-N?

The word Procrustean is thus used by analogy to describe, for example, situations where an arbitrary standard is used to measure success, while completely disregarding obvious harm that results from the effort."

(especially of a framework or system) enforcing uniformity or conformity without regard to natural variation or individuality:

  • In Edgar Allan Poe's influential crime story "The Purloined Letter" (1844), the private detective Dupin uses the metaphor of a Procrustean bed to describe the Parisian police's overly rigid method of looking for clues."

"Natural variation" or a mind set?

Procrustean string is a fixed-length string into which strings of varying lengths are placed. If the string inserted is too short, then it is padded out, usually with spaces or null characters. If the string inserted is too long, it is truncated 123The term is derived from the Greek myth of Procrustes, who would stretch or amputate the limbs of his guests to make them fit into an iron bed of a specific size 1In computer science, a Procrustean string is used to store strings of varying lengths in a fixed amount of memory."


Side step: ''By first grade, we were taught that the letters a, e, i, o, u, and sometimes y are vowels. Most of us probably accepted what we were told (it was just another "rule" we had to follow), and never questioned why that last part was true (there were other things to wonder about, like snack time). Additionally, we unconditionally accepted that the other 'twenty' letters in the English alphabet were strictly consonants. To most, those vowels and consonants were just letters, but to that first grader who aspired to be a linguist, they were more than merely lines on a page.''

Continued: As seen from a different perspective...''By means of the cup, we can put anything ''into'' our Magical Cosmos we want, just as by the Shield we can exclude anything. 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 twentyfive 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''].

Side note: "Seeker was a position in the wizarding sport of Quidditch. There was one Seeker per team. The goal of the Seeker was to catch the Golden Snitch. They played a crucial role in Quidditch, as a game did not end until the Seeker caught the Snitch. A team whose Seeker caught the Snitch received 150 points, which almost always won the match for that team. The position of the Seeker, known as the Hunter, was introduced in response to Barberus Bragge's introduction of the Golden Snidget during a match."

Isis (called "Aset" by the Egyptians), a daughter of Nut and Geb, is known in Ancient Egyptian mythology as a goddess of magic. Wife and sister of Osiris, Isis was originally considered a funerary goddess. After her resurrection via magic of Osiris, who had been killed by his brother Set, Isis was considered "more powerful than a thousand soldiers" and "the clever-tongued one whose speech never fails." She is sometimes invoked as an assistant in magical rituals in some traditions of contemporary Paganism. Her worship is also a focus of some Kemetic reconstructionist groups.

''No name for this soldier is given in the canonical Gospels; the name Longinus is instead found in the apocryphal Gospel of Nicodemus. Longinus did not start out as a saint. An early tradition, found in a sixth or seventh century pseudepigraphal "Letter of Herod to Pilate", claims that Longinus suffered for having pierced Jesus, and that he was condemned to a cave where every night a lion came and mauled him until dawn, after which his body healed back to normal, in a pattern that would repeat until the end of time.''

Red or green 'lion'?

From a different perspective: ''Prometheus was punished by Zeus because he stole fire to give back to mankind. He was chained to a rock in the Caucasus Mountains, and every day an eagle came and ate part of his liver.

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].

He called it Mar Pacífico, which in both Portuguese and Spanish means 'peaceful sea'. [7] Alternative name by indigenous Islanders is Te moana-nui a Kiwa.''

Xenicibis is a large, extinct, flightless ibis. It was discovered by Storrs Olson from the Smithsonian Institution, who found some partial remains in a Jamaican cave in 1977. When Olson eventually saw the bird’s wing bones, he was baffled. They were so “utterly strange” that he thought the animal must have been suffering from some inexplicable disease.
Since then, Olson has found more remains including an almost complete skeleton. Now, he and his partner Nicholas Longrich from Yale University, have a very different view of the wing. They think it was a club. Weapons like clubs and bats have large weighted ends to deliver heavy impacts, and long handles to increase the speed of the swing. That’s exactly what you see in Xenicibis’s wing.

From a different perspective: ''Seperating the island from Italy are the straits of Messina, home to that pair of mythological monsters Scylla and Charybdis. Charybdis haunted the Sicilian side of the straits, where 'spray shot up and sand churned in heaving sea'. An undistinguished sea nymph, she possessed one tragic flaw that led to her down-FALL: an insatiable appetite....'Wolfed down' some of the cattle of Hercules {of Geryon}, which he had stolen from the giant. The cattle were under the protection of Zeus. He hurled a thunderbolt at Charybdis, who fell, trapped beneath a rock. Her hunger unabated, and three times each day thereafter, sucked down each day all she could into the JAWS of her prodigious whirlpools. Strabo once wrote of his wonder of the 'great depth, into which vessels can so easily be sucked thanks to its BACK-flowing currents, plunging prow-first into its fast flowing whirlpool. When these ships are swallowed {Argo Navis?} and shattered, the wreckage is carried ashore at Taormina, which for this reason is named 'Excrementa'....''

''On the east coast of Sicily, idyllicly perched on a rocky promontory {'peninsula'?} on the side of a mountain, high above the sea, Taormina has been the most popular tourist destination in Sicily for a couple of hundred of years.

Side note: "At an altitude of 2500 miles you can stay up at only 2 miles per second and your orbit can be even freer....Getting completely out of the whirlpool is, relatively speaking, a pushover from here. The rule is that from any orbit that holds you continuously above the earth {or any other gravitating body} all you need do is multiply your velocity by √² to escape the body altogether. Thus if any satellite with an average velocity of 2 miles per second increases it to 2 √² or 2.8 mps it will just sail off never to return."  [Page 64 'Serpent in the Sky' / John West].

Homer mentions Boötes in the Odyssey as a celestial reference for navigation,[5] describing it as "late-setting" or "slow to set".[6] Exactly whom Boötes is supposed to represent in Greek mythology is not clear. According to one version, he was a son of Demeter,[7] Philomenus, twin brother of Plutus, a plowman who drove the oxen in the constellation Ursa Major.[8] This agrees with the constellation's name.[9] The ancient Greeks saw the asterism now called the "Big Dipper" or "Plough" as a cart with oxen.[1][10] Some myths say that Boötes invented the plow and was memorialized for his ingenuity as a constellation. Another myth associated with Boötes by Hyginus is that of Icarius, who was schooled as a grape farmer and winemaker by Dionysus. Icarius made wine so strong that those who drank it appeared poisoned, which caused shepherds to avenge their supposedly poisoned friends by killing Icarius.''


'Plow the waves'? 'Hoe the Fields'?

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."

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 {'triangular' and horizontal links?}. 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'].

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?}.

"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.)

Unveiled? Face to face? With what?

"Faiyum (Arabicالفيوم el-Fayyūm  pronounced [elfæjˈjuːm], borrowed from Coptic ̀Ⲫⲓⲟⲙ or Ⲫⲓⲱⲙ Phiom or Phiōm from Ancient Egyptianpꜣ ym "the Sea, Lake") is a city in Middle Egypt. Located 100 kilometres (62 miles) southwest of Cairo, in the Faiyum Oasis, it is the capital of the modern Faiyum Governorate. Originally called Shedet in Egyptian, the Greeks called it in Koinē GreekΚροκοδειλόπολιςromanized: Krokodilópolis, and later Medieval GreekἈρσινόηromanizedArsinoë.[2] It is one of Egypt's oldest cities due to its strategic location....

"Phiomia is an extinct genus of basal elephantiform proboscidean that lived in what is now Northern Africa during the Late Eocene to Early Oligocene some 37–30 million years ago.[1] "Phiomia serridens" means "saw-toothed animal of Faiyum."

Originally founded by the ancient Egyptians as Shedet, its current name in English is also spelled as FayumFaiyum or al-Faiyūm. Faiyum was also previously officially named Madīnat al-Faiyūm (Arabic for The City of Faiyum). The name Faiyum (and its spelling variations) may also refer to the Faiyum Oasis, although it is commonly used by Egyptians today to refer to the city....The modern name of the city comes from Coptic  ̀Ⲫⲓⲟⲙ /Ⲡⲉⲓⲟⲙ epʰiom/peiom (whence the proper name Ⲡⲁⲓⲟⲙ payom), meaning the Sea or the Lake, which in turn comes from late Egyptian pꜣ-ym of the same meaning, a reference to the nearby Lake Moeris; the extinct elephant ancestor Phiomia was named after it."

Phiomia serridens (=P. wintoniP. osborniP. minor[2]) is estimated to had shoulder height 134.5 centimetres (4.41 ft),[3] while P. major got larger size.[2] It vaguely resembled a modern elephant, although, based on the shape of its nasal bones, it had only a very short trunk. It had short tusks on the upper jaw and also short shovel-like tusks on the lower jaw that were most likely used for gathering food. These were similar to those of the Miocene PlatybelodonArchaeobelodon, and Amebelodon, but considerably smaller. The tusks in the upper jaw may have been used in defence,[4] or scraping bark off trees."

"The lake was also used as part of a freight transport system: The remnants of the Lake Moeris Quarry Road, the oldest known paved road in the world, were found near the lake. It was used to convey basalt blocks from a nearby quarry to the lake; from the lake the blocks could be shipped to the Giza Necropolis for building and monument construction projects. The ASCE has entered it into its List of Historic Civil Engineering Landmarks.....

Any labyrinths?



Herodotus claims to have visited the lake in his book Histories, situating it below the Labyrinth of Egypt and opposite the ancient city Crocodilopolis (i.e., the modern city of Fayyum).[5] Herodotus also states that "two pyramids" (interpreted to be the Pedestals of Biahmu) stood in the middle of the lake[6] – a claim that led the British Egyptologist W.M.F. Petrie to hypothesize that the lake was flooded when Herodotus had visited the area.[7]

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 geographers and travellers during classical times."


And/or: "The pedestals are known by a variety of names, including the "Colossi of Biahmu"[3] and the "Pyramids of Biahmu".[4][5] Locally, they are often referred to as Al-Ṣanam (الصنـمـ), which is Arabic for "The Idol".[1][2] Historically, the ruins have also been called Haram Biyahmū ("Pyramid of Biahmu"), Rigl Pharaon ("The Foot of the Pharaoh"), and Mustuhamel ("The Bathed")."

"The nasal bones are two small oblong bones, varying in size and form in different individuals; they are placed side by side at the middle and upper part of the face and by their junction, form the bridge of the upper one third of the nose."

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."

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 Catalhoyuk, 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 Catalhoyuk {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}.

''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].

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 canine teeth are also known as the eye-teeth.'' ['The Chase'].


Pope Julius II. Metal.

"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].

"Pope Julius II (Latin: Iulius II; Italian: Giulio II; born Giuliano della Rovere; 5 December 1443 – 21 February 1513) was head of the Catholic Church and ruler of the Papal States from 1503 to his death, in February 1513. Nicknamed the Warrior Pope, Battle Pope or the Fearsome Pope, he chose his papal name not in honour of Pope Julius I but in emulation of Julius Caesar."

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.

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.

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.

'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.

And/or: ''Beelzebub (/bˈɛlzəbʌb, ˈbl-/[1] bee-EL-zə-bub, BEEL-; Hebrew: בַּעַל-זְבוּב Baʿal-zəḇūḇ), also spelled Beelzebul or Belzebuth, is a name derived from a Philistine god, formerly worshipped in Ekron, and later adopted by some Abrahamic religions as a major demon. The name Beelzebub is associated with the Canaanite god Baal.

In theological sources, predominantly Christian, Beelzebub is another name for Satan. He is known in demonology as one of the seven deadly demons or seven princes of Hell, Beelzebub representing gluttony and envy. The Dictionnaire Infernal describes Beelzebub as a being capable of flying, known as the "Lord of the Flyers", or the "Lord of the Flies"....In one understanding, Ba'al-zəbûb is translated literally as "lord of (the) flies".[3][4][5][6] It was long ago suggested that there was a relationship between the Philistine god, and cults of flies—referring to a view of them as pests, feasting on excrement—appearing in the Hellenic world, such as Zeus Apomyios or Myiagros.''

''Beelzebub, literally "Lord of the Flies," is one of Satan's companion archdemons, who has erected a fort near the Wicket Gate from which he and his soldiers can shoot arrows of 'fire' at those about to enter the Wicket Gate so they will never enter it. He is also the lord, god, king, master, and prince of Vanity Fair. Christian calls him "captain" of the Foul Fiend Apollyon, who he later met in the Valley of Humiliation.'' ['The Pilgrims Progress' / J. Bunyan].

And/or: ''Perhaps most importantly, although not all golden flies have been found in burials, where they have, and we know the sex of the deceased, the majority (71%) have been found with women. In fact, not a single physical golden fly has been found with a man – instead, their flies are textual or iconographic. The archaeological data therefore suggests it is extremely unlikely that golden flies were military awards.''

Continued: 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].
