Going to - or coming back from those hills?

"The esoteric function of the nome in the body of Egypt is revealed through the character of the nome spirit. For instance, at the 8th nome of Upper Egypt, the nature spirit of the region was 'Khentiamenti', a figure that both guarded and led the way to ''the hidden land'' of the departed, 'Amentet'. It was believed in ancient times that the entrance to Amentet, over which Osiris presided, was physically located in the region between Thinis and Abydos, ''between the two hills'' {'horizon' link?}, a reference to the 'shoulders' of Khentiamenti. Thinis, the earlist burial place of royal persons known in Egypt, was later {evolution of?} incorporated with the town of Abydos and assumed a nome standard called ''the shrine of the head'', identical to that of the Osirian relic depicted in the reliefs at the Abydos temple, where the head of Osiris was said to be enshrined. Khentiamenti, the earthly govenor of the area, assumed the form of Osiris as a shadowy, mirror image of the celestial power with which he was associated. But more importantly, Abydos as the ''head'' of the terrestrial body of Osiris represented the place where the neter's form spread itself northward over the Nile." [From the book by Rosemary Clark].

Question. Why should that be ''more important''?

'Diamond of Virgo'

'Waters of the Gap'. Feet first or head first?

Something to ponder on: {From the temple of Osiris at Denderah}: "The Great One 'falls' upon his side....You shall reach the sky as Orion....remove yourself from upon your left side, put yourself upon your right side....for you belong to the stars who surround Re." [' The Death of Gods in Ancient Egypt' / Jane Sellers].

Question 2. Was 'Alexandria' {at its 'conception'} also laid out in 'human form'? If so, where would the 'head' be represented?

Question 3. ''Shoulders'' in relation to defining something {aspects of} within Homer's Illiad?

A side step: "This is a true story, about a boy king born through an ''immaculate conception'' on the banks of the Nile, more than 3000 years ago. He taught his people the science of the 'sun'....when he died they say he went to the 'stars'. They called him the feathered snake. But first i need to tell you about the boy king of Mexico. He too, was born through an ''immaculate conception,'' more than 1250 years ago in the jungles of Mexico. He taught his people the science of the 'sun'. When he died he too went to the 'stars'. They called him the feathered snake." [Introduction to the book, 'The Tutankhamun Prophecies' {The sacred science of the Mayas, Egyptians and Freemasons} by M. Cotterell]. See anything? [After 'pooling' together all the available information....by way of...objective reasoning / analysis].

Question. Why ''feathered''. Clue. Horizontal / vertical link. Enlarged elsewhere.

"For after all, as he himself noted, all the religions are like different colored stones in the 'crown' of The One King." [Introduction to the book 'The Presence of Other Worlds' / Emanuel Swedenborg]. Try "crown".

Golden 'child', in relation to a ''golden shield,'' in relation to a ''golden throne,'' relative to Venus, with an understanding in mind, i.e.,...........

"So Shishak king of Egypt advanced on Jerusalem and carried off the 'treasures of the Temple' and the treasures of the royal palace. He took everything away, including the golden shields that Solomon had made. [II Chronicles 12:9]. Extract from page 140, 'A Test of Time' by David Rohl.

"The dating of the Venus observations, recorded on British Museum Tablet K.160, to the reign of Ammisaduga can be ascertained by the appearance of the phrase 'Year of the Golden Throne' before the astronomical observations which it records for 'year 8', Other tablets from the Old Babylonian period have demonstrated that the phrase 'Year of the Golden Throne' was the date formula for the eighth regnal year of....etc." [Page 289, same book].

To understand that ''information'' understand this subject. The author uses such biblical 'narratives' [or negates them] to determine new 'dates' for that epic biblical tale, therefore predicting that such remnants of such buildings as Solomons will be found. To understand that tales true purpose, understand this subject. Found within.

"More than fifteen centuries have passed since the appearance of St. Augustine's great work 'The City of God' [Civitas Dei]. This work represents the first comprehensive survey of world history, as far as it could be known at that time, reaching beyond the political, social, and economic aspects. This history of the world embraces not only the conflicts and struggles between various human interests, but also - and especially - the workings of a providence that transcends them... It was the first work of philosophical history in the West that was intended at the same time to be a further pursuance of the biblical method of approach. Augustine learned from the Bible to distinguish the essential from the inessential, and to perceive the relationships of essential significance between events in the course of the destiny of humanity. Making use of this method that he had learned from the Bible, he also applied it to a consideration of post biblical times. Thus arose in the occident the first work that had something to say about the meaning of world history." [Chapter 3, 'Lazarus Come Forth'. Mentioned elsewhere].

'Mans Search for Meaning' / Viktor Frankl.

64 aspects?

Pressed flowers found in the 'middle' of the forehead.

A working example of ONE method: ''Aztec rulers were fascinated by a particular variety of 'starfish' - whose orange and brown coloration resembled one their most venerated symbols of 'power' the Jaguar {higher or 'lower'?}....onehundred and 'sixtyfour' found in a ritual offering - in the Temple Mayor complex - at the Aztec capital {'Center'?}, Tenochtitlan.....A female Jaguar, lying in a bed of thousands of seashells and pieces of coral...with fragments of starfish. Most had become decomposed with the exception of one, which had remained intact, because it had been flattened into the soil  like a pressed flower: ''Its coloration looks like a Jaguars fur, which is what probably attracted the Aztecs to it....Aztec rulers kept them alive in shallow pools, but never this many in one place.'' ['Archaeology' / SEP/OCT 2022].

''Still Waters''?

'Stamp' of the feminine?

'Clover' to enlarge.

'Spirit' or 'Soul'? Male or female feet.

Essence?

Side note: ''Once in a courtyard cafe in Khan el Khalil, i caught the scent of the body of heaven, the intoxicating perfume of pressed flowers. What were those bright petals crushed in the embrace of form? What were the names of her children? On the way to Giza a splash of red petal had streaked past the car. ''What was that flower?'' i asked the driver. 'Zu-hoor. All are zu-hoor. Flower is for woman to know. Dont ask me i'm a man.' In Khan el Khalil essence of zu-hoor wafted across the table, mingled with the aroma of thick, black coffee.'' [ Page 335 'Dreams of Isis'].

''Ethiopia is Africa's leading producer of coffee...Originates in Yemen.''

Land of Punt?

'The Shipwrecked Sailor'.

"Khan el-Khalili (Arabicخان الخليلي) is a famous bazaar and souq (or souk) in the historic center of CairoEgypt. Established as a center of trade in the Mamluk era and named for one of its several historic caravanserais, the bazaar district has since become one of Cairo's main attractions for tourists and Egyptians alike. It is also home to many Egyptian artisans and workshops involved in the production of traditional crafts and souvenirs. The name Khan el-Khalili historically referred to a single building in the area; today it refers to the entire shopping district."

"Cairo was originally founded in 969 CE as a capital for the Fatimid Caliphate, an empire which by then covered much of North Africa and parts of the Levant and the HijazJawhar Al-Siqilli, the general who conquered Egypt for the Fatimids, was ordered to construct a great palace complex to house the caliphs, their household, and the state's institutions.[2] Two palaces were eventually completed: an eastern one (the largest of the two) and a western one, between which was a plaza known as Bayn al-Qasrayn ("Between the Two Palaces"). The site of Khan el-Khalili today was originally the southern end of the eastern Fatimid palace as well as the location of the burial site of the Fatimid caliphs: a mausoleum known as Turbat az-Za'faraan ("the Saffron Tomb").[3][4][2]: 57  Also located here was a lesser palace known as al-Qasr al-Nafi'i (today the site of the 19th-century Wikala of Sulayman Agha al-Silahdar)....

'Lozenge'?

About one quarter of the palace to the northeast was taken up by a great square called Rahbat al-Eid ("Festival Square"), measuring 157 by 105 meters, which was the starting point for the caliph's processions through the city.[4] One of the eastern gates, called Bab al-Zumurrud ("Emerald Gate"), opened off this square and gave access to the part of the palace known as the Emerald Palace, the private residence of the caliph.[4] Another gate opening off the southern side of the square was called Bab al-Eid. An arsenal hall, called Khizanat al-Bunud (roughly the "Arsenal of Banners/Flags"), lay to the east of the palace, as did a gate known as Bab Qasr al-Sharq ("Eastern Palace Gate").[4] The southeastern gate, Bab Daylam ("Gate of the Daylamites"), led to the monument that later became the shrine of al-Husayn (see below), while the southwestern gate was called Bab Turbat al-Za'faraan (or Bab al-Za'faraan), after the name of the adjacent royal mausoleum (see below).[4][7]

'Glass' of wine or water? Half empty or half full?

The southwestern part of the palace was occupied by the kitchens, which also provided food for the poor during the fasting month of Ramadan. The southernmost of the western gates, located here, became known as Bab Zuhuma, named after the odours of food emanating from the kitchens.[4] The only northern gate of the palace, Bab al-Rih ("Gate of the Wind"), was the entrance used by the da'is. This gate may also have been the last one to disappear in the post-Fatimid period, having survived at least until 1408 and having been seen by Maqrizi."

"Tombs found in Nubia belonging to the Kings and Queens. Both have military symbols of bows/arrows and spears.  Pyramid shape but very 'steep'. Over the years the women's tombs start at the periphery of the central kings pyramid  tomb. Surrounding it. Until eventually {'spiritual evolution'} it's  the Queens tomb that becomes the central feature with others surrounding it. From external to internal. That central 'sacred space' being surrounded by miniature 'colonnades' in triangular form. ['Mysteries From Above: Nubia' / S1 EP5].

Spirt/Soul. Which and why?

Macro or Micro?

Peristyle to enlarge.

'Court'.

A work in progress: "The difference between a 'castle' and 'palace': Tintagel was a castle, the mans place, wherein the woman's quarters were confined to one part - The Bower, which is a miniature palace wherein the man enters and the women come forward and unhelm him and take charge of his armour and weapons and there entertain him with the arts of peace, thus refreshing him. They tend his wounds and minister to him the graces, the tendernesses and the arts of life. Thus is civilisation born and nurtured. The Bower is a secluded haven of peace in a world of war. It is like the Arc of the Covenant in which the holy vessels are preserved during the sojourn in the wilderness. To each man his home should be a bower whether he returns from his war with the world, which is his formula for rest and comfort of body and refreshment of spirit....The formula of Camelot is the formula of the cultivation of a high civilisation in times of peace, in an ordered environment, and it is a Queens formula as Tintagel is a King's formula." [Page 62/3 'The Arthurian Formula' ].

The Vine?

Imhotep.

And/or: "Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaks vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood: That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; and that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace....Happy is that people who is in such a state." [Psalm 144 :11-15].

Inscription found within: "Hereditary Prince." At a later time the image of a snake had been 'added'. "Sculptor" to enlarge. Question. 'Right hand' of Tutankhamun or Tutankhaten?

The man in Venus or Venus in the man?

A working example: "The Memphite Tomb of Horemheb is located in the Saqqara necropolis, near Memphis, Egypt.[1] It was constructed before Horemheb ascended to the throne and was never used for his burial, since he later built the Theban tomb KV57 for this purpose. His two wives Mutnedjmet and Amenia were buried within the structure.

The tomb was discovered by art robbers at the beginning of the 19th century. Looted reliefs were acquired by a number of European and American museums. The tomb's location was then lost, it was relocated in 1975 and excavated in 1979.

The tomb was built in three phases, as Horemheb's status rose. The first design consisted of an entry pylon into forecourt, a colonnaded court containing the burial shaft and three chapels or offering rooms. Intrusive burials were found in the side chapels. The forecourt was then walled to produce two small chapels, one at each side. They were entered by two new piercings through the pylon. A new walled forecourt was constructed in front of the pylon. To make this extension a 5th6th Dynasty mastaba was demolished and the burial shaft with a burial chamber some 17m below incorporated into the new forecourt. Burials from the 19th Dynasty were found at 9m depth. Finally the forecourt was closed by a pylon some 7m high and colonnaded to form the first peristyle open court. The narrowed original forecourt was covered with a vaulted roof and contained statues while the chapels became storage rooms."

Shadow / Light.

Continued: ''There was a storm. And thousands and thousands of starfish were washed up on the shore. And there was this beautiful little girl running down the beach and she was picking up the starfish, she was frantically throwing them back into the ocean. When I saw her doing this I said to her, 'Why are you doing that? You can only save a few before they die, what difference does it make?' And she looked at me and she said, 'To THAT one, it makes a difference.' To THAT one, it makes a difference, that little girl said. And she was right and at that very moment she was making a difference for that starfish and she was making a difference for herself too because she was connected, to that starfish. And that's what 'life' is all about, connecting. In fact that's the only time you're ever alive, really, is when you're connecting.''

THAT universal 'bit'?

''A starfish does not have a centralised brain.''

Mummification? {i.e., what happens to the brain}.

Blind date - with Venus?

"Like the hexagram, the origins of the pentagram lies in the mists of time, long before the Solomonic period. The symbol is also referred to as a pentalpha, pentangle, or pentacle. Some of the earliest archeological discoveries that reveal the use of a pentagram figure have been found in the area of the Middle East...The symbolism attached to the use of the pentagram appears to have varied depending on the culture in which it was used. In the past, it has symbolized the 'five' elements of earth, fire, water, air and ether, with ether being associated with the 'spirit'. It is also seen as representing the five senses of sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste...According to some researchers, the use of the pentagram dates back to at least the epoch of a ruler in Mesopotamia named Uruk IV, around 1300 BC. Around that time the pentagram apparently symbolized 'heavenly quarter' or 'direction' {as one example S/W?}. Through this we can see that an early symbolic definition {intention?} provided a link with astronomy.....

Mycenaean Shield. 'Heraldry'?

This may be significant because the pentagram is often connected with the planet Venus. This connection seems to emanate from an esoteric astrological belief that suggested that various conjunctions of that planet with the sun will result in observing 'five' distinct patterns, each of 8 years of duration, which describe the pentagram pattern in the sky over a period of 40 years {5x8}. This pattern was, apparently, so regular that the 40 year cycle became a stellar clock for ancient peoples who had noted that the planet returned to the same relative position in the sky after each 40 year cycle...References in the Bible to various periods of '40 days and 40 nights' derives from an allusion to the cyclical passage of Venus as it was understood by ancient civilizations. Although modern astronomers deride this ancient concept of the cyclical passage of Venus, it still held sway until very recent times..." [From the book by K. Gest. All emphasis, this readers].

A representation of something ONLY. Question. Which - ''action {'metal'?} of the mind'' - came first - this subject, astronomy or observations of the night sky? AND why?

Side note: ''The mind is more like a butterfly, to be caught in a gossamer web {'net'?} rather than a hard steel trap.'' [Page 130 'The Path Through the Labyrinth' / M. Green].

''origins'' - in relation to 'seven' and 'twelve' {enlarged elsewhere} - and NOW 'five' - leading to an understanding of what 'forty' may represent. Question. Illiterate pagan mathematicians?

'The Celtic Latin Tradition of Biblical Style' by D. Howlett.

What would the Celtic equivalent be?

"This book has grown out of an inquiry into the structure of works written in Latin and Old English at the court of King Alfred the Great in Wessex at the end of the 9th century. To account for features in them which seemed odd i examined other Old English verse composed before the end of the 9th century. After finding the same features i examined Anglo-Latin prose and verse from the 7th century onward, then Celtic Latin prose and verse from the 5th century onward, then the Bible in Latin, in Greek and finally Hebrew, with which i should have begun." [Prologue to the above book by D. Howlett].

''Odd'' in relation to 'peculiar'. Anything?

REFRESHER: "The children of Seth [Set] first possessed that peculiar sort of wisdom, which is concerned with the heavenly bodies."

Synchronistic?

Djedefre.

As one example: "The hidden mystery of Mabon, son of Madron is that of the Youth, Son of the Mother - a universal archetypal pattern of which all peoples have some knowledge, but which has particular native variants depending on the culture and time scale involved. Within British tradition, 'Mabon is not only the Great Prisoner, he is also the Immemorial Prisoner, the Great Son who has been lost for aeons and is at last found.' And if he is without a personal name, what might that name be? {Alfred?}...There is an archetypal mystery pattern underlying the Mabinogion in which many of its 'heroes' can be seen as types of Mabon..." [Page 152 'Mabon and the Mysteries of Britain' / C. Mathews].

'Sir pots a-lot' {Stephen Henry - 'Would i Lie to You' / bbc1}.

''Aeon means literally 'age' but it also stands for the spirit of an age or period of time personified as a 'god'...'' [Page 299 'Magi: The Quest for the Secret Tradition'].

Side note: Funniest 'put down' in history: Tom Hanks visiting DiCaprio in prison - ''Frank, would you be interested in working for the F.B.I. ?'' DiCaprio: ''I'm going to have to think about it - i've already got a job in here....'' ['Catch Me if You Can' / 2002].

“Most certainly, I tell you, one who doesn’t enter by the door into the sheep fold, but climbs up some other way, is a thief and a robber."

Continued: Neil Oliver investigates the possible burial site of same: Hyde Abbey = last known site, until it was replaced by a 'prison'. A Mr 'Page' {'Keeper of the Prison'} tells an amateur historian that some bones were found by the local inhabitants of prison while digging the 'foundations' - ''A lead coffin within a Stone One'' - eventually 'smashed' - bones 'scattered' . Later on the story embellished with the word ''spring''. Nothing found. ['The Search for Alfred the Great' / Satellite TV]. Try ''gathering'' / ''lead'' etc.

Question. Was Mr Page or any members of the Council that purchased the land in order to grant planning permission - 'participants' in any ''mystery clubs'' and/or ''Christians''?

Try ''Herod'' for analogy on ''same theme''.

'Joy'?

And/or: Same question to the 'origin' of the {folklore?} of such tales as: "The Old Religion and its current adherents are all seekers after joy. It is a religion of personal experience and of ceremonies that bring companionship and happiness to the people who share them. They do not see the CAKES AND WINE of their communion as the blood and body of a slain god, but as tokens of the harvest from the Earth Mother and her Lord. There should be no idea of 'sacrifice' {altar link} - for the corn is grown to be harvested." [Page 67 'Magic for the Aquarian Age' / M. Green].

Burnt cakes?

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. Should'nt 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}.

"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'].

Understand that connection to give a possible burial location {Altar of Witness?}.

REFRESHER: "The children of Seth [Set] first possessed that peculiar sort of wisdom, which is concerned with the heavenly bodies."

From a different perspective: ''To tackle the medieval pilgrims route of St Olav's Way to the cathedral at Trondheim {Norway}...one has to descend the 'Hill of JOY' to set eyes for the first time on the cathedral - the worlds most northerly medieval one.''  [Page 88 'Readers Digest' / July 2022].

''Green sap of spring in the young wood a-stir, will celebrate the mountain Mother. And every song bird shout awhile for her.....Ruled by the God Apollo's Golden Mean..." [Taken from various lines from ''In Dedication'' poem at the beginning of the book 'The White Goddess' / R. Graves].

Figure of eight?

A working example: Many speculate about the demise of the pyramid builders. Why? The final one being Pepi 2nd. Pyramid texts written inside - all in green. Thereafter all buried deep within a NATURAL feature - the ''beginnings'' of which originate with Thutmose and his daughter - Hatshepsut.  ['Lost Treasures of Egypt' / Nat Geo / 19/3/21].

'Fire' and soul as a means....

''And the beautiful lady has come." Try  Akhenaten {as one example}.

''The name Thutmose - makes a reference to a moon deity, Thoth {Egyptian Djehuti}.'' [Page 14 'Hatshepsut' / Metropolitan Museum of Art].

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

''Man shall not live by bread alone but....." Continued {2:1}.

Did Alfred eat those cakes?

Something extra:  ''Chapter 26 {the author M. Ashby defines it as chapter 13}, relates to affirming self control. Once again there is a negative reference to the east, the eating of 'cakes' - on the eastern side of the lake of flowers - symbolic of desires and thoughts of worldly life; and reincarnation....the heart is a metaphor for the mind, when the mind is overpowered by negative or unrighteousness i.e., lying, cheating, neg. behaviour, hypocrisy etc. - it is not able to envisage the 'higher' reality of the spirit....therefore enslaving the 'soul'....This reference relates to the understanding of life as related by the journey of Ra {'spirit'}. Every day 'Ra' in the form of the sun disc is metaphorically consumed by Nut {'soul'} and she gives birth to him every morning. THEREFORE the east represents rebirth, the new life or the process of reincarnation. Reincarnation implies having to once again being born into the world of time and space, to suffer the limitations of youth etc.....it is to be understood as a separation from 'divine' consciousness....To reincarnate is not being able to remember the True Self....This is a kind of forgetfulness. A forgetfulness of the 'higher' self." [Pages 214/7 of the book by M. Ashby].

East/West at Thebes/Karnac?

And/or: ''Do not travel on those western waterways. Those who travel thereon do not come {towards Ra}. Walk, O thou Pepi Nefer-ka-Re, upon these eastern waterways among the followers of Ra of the sublime arm {right one?], who is in the east.'.....These words open the door to the Royal path, also called the direct way. It is the mysteries story of  the resurrection of Being without passing through lives and reincarnation; mysteries because its genesis is invisible although spiritually commanded by the same laws. 'Being' is created as Tum, it is liberated, from earth by Horus, it is purified by spirit and animated with the Horian fire {living fire' i,e., subject material}- it has assimilated all the qualities within an hour {i.e., not 'quantities'} - whereas on the western path.....'' [Page 218/9 'Sacred Science' / R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz].

Refresher: ''As has been said, Ra is not the sun itself, but rather the solar energy {'spirit'?} which, during the course of its daily cycle, animates all the organic {'soul'?} functions of the human body, one after the other, at each hour of the day and night. It is in this way that we are subject to it.''

Try 2:3 to connect. And/or: 'remember/forgetting' And/or: Mr Jones, Miss Smith {5:9}. And/or ''wantonness'' {this page} to understand ''flower'' in its context. etc.

The War of Innocents. Are they taking Mother Russia UP or Down a path?

And/or: "This predicament of being caught up in a world of illusion {i.e., 'forgetfulness'} and being 'fed' situations {fate} against ones True Will is what the Egyptian Book of the Dead terms 'eating excrement' {''dung'' link?}. ''I do not eat it, it is abominable to my Ka. It does not go into my body. I live in accordance with the 'knowledge' of the gods and goddesses {i.e., ''food'' of the gods}. Hence: 'I live and am empowered through their bread. Powerful am I 'eating' it....under the hair, within Hathor, my Lady {'soul' link}, I make a great offering. I make bread in the city of Djedu {i.e., where the pillar of Osiris is found}. And obligations in the city of Anu. [Page 217 same book].

Try ''bristle'' {3:10} to understand ''hair'' and Isiah 19:19 for the ''pillar'' quote. In order to attempt a MIND SET.

Or if you feel like a further head scratch try ’Sacred geography of the ancient Greeks’. By J. Richer. Great maps. A link to those different landscapes of different cultures...but with the same keys.

That same link to the book... ’Hero with a 1000 faces’. By J. Campbell. Or the Egyptian / Greeks / Romans.. etc ‘gods/goddesses’ equivalent. Those so called polytheism cultures. Only polytheism to those who are not aware. Monotheism to those who are. In relation to the individual. Each individual. In their opinion, [by way of implication].

Understanding that principle gives a deeper more correct meaning to such publications as 'Gods of the New Millennium' by A. Alford.

ghost

''Ghost'' the dire Wolf.

"The Mystery gods were not immaterial ghosts in human guise, nor were they material idols. They were spiritual essences. They were part of the 'One God' as a wave is part of the ocean. [Chapter 2, 'The Forgotten Mage']. Recall what the 'ocean' represents within this subject.

''A river of thoughts' - where good deeds are ships on which to ride the waves''.

Side note: "The author of the Romance of Taliesin evidently knew Amathaon as Llew Llaw, A Brythonic title of Hercules, since he says in the 'Song Concerning the Sons of Llyr' : 'I was at the Battle of the Trees with Llew and Gwydion, he who transformed {'finger' link?} timber, earth and plants'. The case is complicated by occasional bardic reference to Beli and the sea which at first sight suggest that he is a sea god: 'the waves are his horses, the brine, his liquor'...." [Page 60 'The White Goddess' / R. Graves].

Continued: i.e.,"In speaking of the Pantheons of the gods, it was noted that each god stood for a spiritual principle of a natural force...with one exception, the Sacrificed god, and he stands for the soul of the initiate, to whom he is also the great initiator."[Chapter 12, 'The Training and Work of the Initiate' by D. Fortune]. That link to those many 'illicit' affairs between 'father', 'daughter' and/or 'brother' / 'sister', indicative of same, i.e.,as a representation of something ''outside of the obvious'' i.e., symbolic....relative to the individual.

Side note. ''Sacrificed god'' in relation to ''untouched by fire'' {found elsewhere}. One relates to top/down the other bottom/up. One to S/W the other S/E. Which and why?

Or chapter nine of 'The Synchronicity Key', explaining in full detail the concept of the 'hero' throughout mythology and in to the present, in relation to a 'journey', [chapter eleven]. That same journey that has been constantly written about; within this subject; since the written word came into common use. That 'hero' taking many forms, explained within.....

"Egyptian religious writings reflect a consistent 'pantheism', and frequent references to those spiritual beings from whom life originates, the Neteru. This term as traditionally been translated as the ''gods,'' the Neter being the individual deity of a place or action."......" some scholars have proposed that the apparently complex cosmological system of Egypt that contain the vast array of 'gods' and 'goddess' figures, animal totems, and celestial asterisms - was the 'language' of Sacred Science.... The Neteru represent the sacred notation of the system, incorporating principles and functions into composite figures, each expressing a realm of action and experience as well as an idea." ......

"The sacredness of the Neter does not set them apart from us, but binds all things together." [Chapter one, 'The Sacred Tradition in Ancient Egypt']. Try ''re-union''. Question. Agree or disagree?

"First i will explain the great meaning: wrap up the beginning and end {'swaddling'?}, cap the start and finish {'gold'?}." The meaning is broad and hard to see; now i will treat it in terms of 'five' aspects: awakening the great mind {'Amun'?}, cultivating the great practice {'vine'?}, experiencing the great result {'synchronicities'?}, rending the great net {'153'?}, and returning to the great abode." [First paragraph, first page 'Stopping and Seeing: A Comprehensive Course in Buddhist Meditation' / Chih-i / Translated by T. Cleary]. Imhotep to enlarge.

As an example: ''The 'flag' as a symbol of the presence of any ''divine'' being - god or goddess - harkens back to one of the oldest goddesses, Neith, the weaver. Her name in early hieroglyphs was written as N-t, and it meant ''the goddess.'' Subsequently, N-t-r became any god or goddess. N-t in hieroglyphs also is part of the word meaning ''to knit'' or ''to weave'' or ''to net'' {'153'?}....In Alexandria, the cosmopolis of ancient cultures where many languages merged, the ancient Egyptian word neter and the Coptic Christian word for ''the god'' came to be pronounced something like netjer; from this, the essence of the Latin word for NATURE, natura, emerged....the early Christian name for 'God'...." [Page 35 'The Union of Isis and Thoth' / N. Ellis and N. Scully].

"By examining their individual aspects in detail...as well as their places in the cosmological scheme...insights may be gained into the possibilities of human consciousness that the ancients understood through these symbolic devices." [Chapter two, same book].

"These things are not easy to express in words, they are more feelings than concepts, nor can they be grasped rationally, but we can perhaps intuitively sense something of this kind as being the essence or significance of the experience which lay behind the expression: ''I have borne the sacred vessel. I have entered into the bridal chamber."

'Prince' link? 'Bobbin' for a pedestal?

Nevertheless the relation which the ancients sought to establish between men and the gods they themselves called the 'Mysteries'. The experience is a mystery which can be understood only when it is recognized that the ''gods'' are not beings external to man but are rather psychological forces or principles which have been projected and personified in ''the gods.'' They overshadow man, but their roots are buried in the hidden depths of the human psyche." [Chapter 10, 'Woman's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Understanding that universal ''framework'' in relation to the 'divine bit' defines those ''principles'. It also explains why the subject of 'psychology' becomes its main 'teaching' aid.

A beehive tomb, also known as a tholos tomb (plural tholoi) (Greek: θολωτός τάφος, θολωτοί τάφοι, "domed tombs"), is a burial structure characterized by its false dome created by the superposition of successively smaller rings of mudbricks or, more often, stones. The resulting structure resembles a beehive, hence the traditional English name. ..In Greece, the vaulted tholoi are a monumental Late Bronze Age development. Their origin is a matter of considerable debate.

A work in progress: ''I now found something else that seemed to clinch the connection between Commagene and Gurdjieff's Sarmoung {Samsung?}. On that day when the sun is in the middle of Cancer - it stands directly below the cluster of stars known as the Bee Hive. Since the word Sarman {Sarmoung in Gurdjieff's Armenian dialect} means both those 'who preserved the doctrine of Zoroaster' and 'bee' in old Persian, then it is quite clear that in 62 BC the 'hive', the place of gathering of the bees was Commagene.'' [Page 154 'Magi: The Quest for a Secret Tradition'].

''The Beehive Cluster (also known as Praesepe (Latin for "manger" or "crib"), M44, NGC 2632, or Cr 189), is an open cluster in the constellation Cancer. One of the nearest open clusters to Earth, it contains a larger population of stars than other nearby bright open clusters holding around 1,000 stars. Under dark skies, the Beehive Cluster looks like a small nebulous object to the naked eye, and has been known since ancient times. Classical astronomer Ptolemy described it as a "nebulous mass in the breast of Cancer". It was among the first objects that Galileo studied with his telescope.''

"And i saw in my sleep a certain little man, a barber, wearing a red robe and royal garments, and he stood outside of the place of the mortifications and said ' What are you doing?' I said to him, 'I stand here because i have missed every road and am lost. He said 'Follow me'. And going out, i followed him. And being near to the place of the mortifications {embalming place}, i saw the little barber man leading me, and he cast into the place of mortifications and his whole body was consumed by fire. Seeing this, i fled and trembled from the fear and i awoke and said to myself, 'What is this that i have seen?' And again i took thought and determined that this barber man is the man of copper {i.e.,that he had seen in a previous dream}. It is necessary for the 'first step' to throw him into the place of mortifications. My soul again, desired to ascend...again i fell asleep...and again, alone, i went along the way, and as i drew near the place of the mortifications, again i got lost, losing sight of the path...And again i saw the same man. And i questioned him saying, 'Why do you lie there?' And he opened his mouth and said, 'I am the man of lead and i am withstanding an intolerable force.' And then i awoke out of fear and sought in myself the cause of this fact. And again i reflected and said to myself, 'I understand well that this one must cast out the lead - truly the vision is concerning the combination of liquids...And again i fell asleep for a while...and i saw one with a sword {'two edged'?} in his hand coming out of the East. And i saw another with a disc in his hand {Aten?}, white and shining... and it was called the meridian {'zenith of something} of the Sun, and i approached the place of the mortifications...And waking, i said, 'I understand well that these matters concern the liquids of the art of the metals.' {wet/dry}. And the one who held the sword said,' You have fulfilled the seven steps beneath. And the other said at the same time as the casting out of the lead by all the liquids, 'The work is completed.'

From a different perspective: ''Midas, now hating wealth and splendor, moved to the country and became a worshipper of Pan, the god of the fields and satyrs.[21] Roman mythographers[22] asserted that his tutor in music was Orpheus.  Once, Pan had the audacity to compare his music with that of Apollo, and challenged Apollo to a trial of skill (also see Marsyas). Tmolus, the mountain-god, was chosen as umpire. Pan blew on his pipes and, with his rustic melody, gave great satisfaction to himself and his faithful follower, Midas, who happened to be present. Then Apollo struck the strings of his lyre. Tmolus at once awarded the victory to Apollo, and all but one agreed with the judgment. Midas dissented, and questioned the justice of the award. Apollo would not suffer such a depraved pair of ears any longer, and said "Must have ears of an ass!", which caused Midas's ears to become those of a donkey.[23] The myth is illustrated by two paintings, "Apollo and Marsyas" by Palma il Giovane (1544–1628), one depicting the scene before, and one after, the punishment. Midas was mortified at this mishap. He attempted to hide his misfortune under an ample turban or headdress, but his barber of course knew the secret, so was told not to mention it. However, the barber could not keep the secret. He went out into a meadow, dug a hole in the ground, whispered the story into it, then covered the hole up. A thick bed of reeds later sprang up from the covered up hole, and began whispering the story, saying "King Midas has an ass's ears".[24] Some sources[which?] said that Midas killed himself by drinking the blood of an ox.

Bearded/UNbearded? As a means....? Question. What does the 'eagle' represent? Try ''Scorpion'' for clews.

From a different perspective: {refresher} ''The ancient Celts carefully distinguished the poet, who was originally a priest and judge as well and whose person was sacrosanct, from the mere gentleman. He was in Irish called a seer { 'fili' }; in Welsh an Oak-seer, which is the probable derivation of 'Druid'. Even kings came under his moral tutelage....The rediscovery of the lost rudiments of poetry may help to solve the question of theme, {i.e., the esoteric stuff, i.e.,what this author defines as the ''Theme''. Enlarged elsewhere} - The Welsh poet Alun {Alan?} Lewis who wrote just before his death in Burma {1944} of 'the single poetic theme of Life and Death....the question of ''what survives of the beloved'....Perfect faithfulness to the theme affects the reader of the poem with a strange feeling, between delight and horror, of which the purely physical effect is that the hair literally stands on end. A. E. Houseman's test of a true poem was simple and practical: does it make the hairs of one's chin bristle if one repeats it silently while shaving? But he did not explain why the hairs should bristle.'' [Pages 21/4 'The White Goddess' / R. Graves].

Working example: ''The painting, of the pharaoh Ramesses II (reign circa 1279 B.C. to 1213 B.C.), is in the tomb of an official named Nakhtamun, who was buried near Thebes (modern day Luxor). In the painting, the pharaoh has some stubble on his face and is facing a figure whose features cannot be seen well, according to a new study published Wednesday (July 12) in the journal PLOS One....The team found that Ramesses II is actually facing Ptah, an ancient Egyptian god associated with craftspeople. The scan "shows that Ramesses II [stands] under a cult canopy {'shadow' / 'dappled'?}, while the enthroned figure in front of him is clearly the god Ptah, not his deceased father Seti I," the team wrote in the study.

Ptah. Static or dynamic. Anchored? In what? Earth or water? Horizon line?

long or short?

The team also found that Ramesses II was depicted with a "protrusive Adam's apple," the team wrote, noting that this is "a detail that is interestingly never shown in ancient Egyptian art."

Moreover, the pharaoh was originally depicted wearing what the ancient Egyptians called a "shebyu collar," which consists of "several voluminous chains of gold formed by large and heavy lenticular beads," the researchers wrote in the study. This collar was popular in the 20th dynasty (circa 1186 B.C. to 1070 B.C.) but was not used during Ramesses II's reign, the team said. According to the researchers, the shebyu collar was painted over and replaced with a "wesekh" necklace, a flat piece of jewelry that was worn during Ramesses II's rule.

''Based on the necklace discovery, the team thinks the painting was originally drawn in the 20th dynasty, decades after Ramesses II died. It's likely that when the artists realized they had painted the wrong type of necklace on Ramesses II, they corrected it, the study authors wrote. The protruding Adam's apple on Ramesses II may have been added during this repainting, possibly by mistake, study first author Philippe Martinez, a molecular archaeologist at Sorbonne University and the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), told Live Science in an email. It's unclear why Ramesses II is depicted with stubble on his chin. This is uncommon as a pharaoh would usually be shown shaven or with a beard.

Peter Brand, a history professor at the University of Memphis and author of the book "Ramesses II: Egypt's Ultimate Pharaoh" (Lockwood Press, 2023), who was not involved in the study, disagreed with some of the findings. Brand said his own research indicates that shebyu collars were worn during Ramesses II's reign, and he thinks the painting dates to late in Ramesses II's tenure. The tall proportions of the king's blue crown and his rather 'chisel'-shaped nose are consistent with the later years of his reign as seen in reliefs at Karnak," a temple complex in Thebes that was dedicated to the god Amun-Ra, Brand said. He also disagreed with the authors about the protruding Adam's apple in the painting, saying it is not unique in ancient Egyptian portraits.'' ['Livescience'].

Side note: ''The modern tendency to turn what is black or shadowy into evil and what is white into good prevents us from fully understanding the khaibit....a type of shadowland....the 'dark brother' of primitive peoples or the ghost freed at death, or the Jungian 'unconscious' including the collective unconscious. To some degree khaibit resembles all three, but ONLY to a degree....No negative associations were placed on the Egyptian shadow...As its hieroglyphic determinative, Khaibit uses the plumed ostrich feather sunshade that accompanied the pharaoh in his temple processions and tours of the land...most notably the name for the temple Akhenaten built on the dusty, treeless desert of Amarna - 'The Shadow of Ra'....''

'Birds of a feather flock together'.

''The umbrella was actually invented to protect people from the sun. The origin of the word “parasol” comes from the French “para,” for “stop,” and “sol,” for sun. And “umbrella” originates from the Latin “umbra,” which means “shade” or “shadow.”

A working example: ''I recently met a down-home, practical fellow who was a maintenance man at Liberty Hall, one of the historic Southern homes in the town where i live. This house reputedly has multiple ghosts....the most active being the locally infamous Grey Lady, an aunt of John Brown, who built the house over 200 years ago....He declares he has never seen the ghost but feels her presence as a cold CLOUD about him.''

As Jean Houston once explained it to me, 'Sahu, is your deepest coding, your archetypal self where the BELOVED lies at one with the entelechy'. I understood sahu to be the last remnant of the physical form and the first evidence of Eternity to come. At the crossroad between local time and cosmic time, it is the local and eternal self {'guardian of the gate'?}. Sometimes the hieroglyph for sahu appears as the tanned panther skin worn by the high priest {Imhotep?}, an outward visible sign of an inner transformation, the sort of transformations that attend birth, death and rebirth experiences.

Continued: Proving the viability of studying the subject. The results are the same - and in some cases quicker to assess; depending on what is known. Including interpreting ones own ''dreams''. After all, we all dream do we not on whatever we are interested in. Whatever we may be thinking about - regardless of subject or topic - in our waking {conscious} state - is still there in our unconscious {nightly} one. Train spotters, {as an example}. Do not ''train spotters'' dream about trains - or anoraks? -{joke}. The only difference is, this subject has more ''keys'' ''images'' and/or ''archetypes'' to assess because of its broadbase of {interests?}. But the main key to it all - is the fact that they are UNIVERSAL - and not general specific, i.e.,train spotting. Try ''Dream Stele'' and/or ''Fulcanelli'' to define similar {archetypal?} keys - in order to 'see' the parts within the whole.

A working example: {i.e.,from a day-to-day point of view}: "Back in 2004, England played a football game against France in the European championships, and England were 1-0 ahead. I think it was Frank Lampard who scored a header from a free kick. At 90 minutes England were winning 1-0. When the final whistle blew we had lost 2-1. France had not only equalised but they'd scored the winning goal all in the last 4 minutes. When I went to bed and woke up the next morning, I immediately realised that I had not only gone to bed thinking about those 4 minutes of football and dreaming, and waking up still thinking about it - but that it was the first night in quite a few years that I had not gone to bed thinking, dreaming and waking up about a murder."

Created by a ''trickster''?

Another example but from a different perspective: "Which brings us to how best we may take advantage of Chretien's work in pursuit of the 'faery' contacts. My initial way was born of an irrational but long sustained impulse to rewrite his stories from the point of view of an unobtrusive observer {objective?}. And it was this experience that led me to an appreciation of the extent of the faery content within them. From this came a realization of the possibility of their use in making faery contacts oneself - not necessary in a blow by blow emulation of the adventures of the hero's - but through following up what came to me as a result of this exercise. For one consequence of it would appear to be to make the veil between the human and faery worlds a little less impervious. A meditative sequence that came to me was to find myself wandering across a wide plain and then suddenly to find before me a figure sitting disconsolately upon a log.

It supports everything in the SENSE that 'IT' holds all forms within its embrace, and were its support withdrawn, even for a moment, all things would collapse at once. Witnessing all, it is attached to naught, so that experiences of pleasure and pain are as one to 'ITS' impartial gaze. Although it is the enjoyer of all 'qualities' yet IT itself is free from quality {nirguna}. In fact, this qualitylessness or NEUTRALITY is, notwithstanding the views of certain theologians, one of the first aspects to be noticed. Though the light shines in the hearts of men, and it is in the heart that it is first percieved, it would be a mistake to supose that it is only there and not in the outer world as well.''

There was something vaguely familiar about this figure that seemed as ambivalent as his last command. His appearance seemed to change like an image in a haze.

A working example: ''Like the Gnostics of old before him, so Jung also was accused of being gloomy and pessimistic in his outlook {'melancholy'?}. Perhaps the best illustration of his attitude is found in the dream of the woman patient - who saw herself submerged in a pit filled with a dangerous substance and who then perceived Jung pushing her right down into the pit with the words: 'Not out but through!'. It has been reported that whenever Jung discussed this particular dream in public or before friends he showed visible enjoyment, delighted in the fact that such a clear recognition of his essential attitude should have emerged from the dream of his patient.''

Side note: "Perhaps we shall fare better when enquiring after the 'deity' or deities in whose honour the tomb - shrines might have been raised. One means of approach to this question is to examine the orientation of the tombs, for if it can be demonstrated that they point towards the sun or moon, then a sky cult of some sorts is implied. At once it can be seen that many tombs are disqualified from inclusion. The earthen long barrows of Cranborne Chase, Dorset, are laid out along ridges, while those of the Yorkshire Wolds were apparently designed to overlook river valleys. The simple passage graves clustered at Carrowkeel, County Sligo, all face between north and N/W, and if they seem to be pointing to anything then it is the great cemetery at Carrowmore, nearby. At least one Orkney passage grave was sited to look at a neighbouring tomb. A tomb of the Clyde tradition on the Isle of Arran faces the midsummer sunrise fairly exactly, but there are nineteen other specimens of the same style on the same island which point in quite different directions. So the ONE midsummer alignment could be a an accident {Micro?}.

Perhaps they just pointed toward the warmest {S/E?} and least windy {S/W?} direction...So sky gazing has not achieved anything conclusive, and we have instead to turn our attention to the earth, and to confront the question of the Goddess..."

"The court cairn or court tomb is a megalithic type of chambered cairn or gallery grave. During the period, 3900–3500 BC, more than 390 court cairns were built in Ireland and over 100 in southwest Scotland. The Neolithic (New Stone Age) monuments are identified by an uncovered courtyard connected to one or more roofed and partitioned burial chambers. Many monuments were built in multiple phases in both Ireland and Scotland and later re-used in the Early Bronze Age. Court cairns are characterized as having an uncovered courtyard area connected to one or more covered burial chambers. The boundaries of this open area were typically lined with large standing stones. A narrow, stone lined entry extended from the main area into one or more roofed burial chambers. Courtyards were generally oval or circular in shape, with U-shaped and semi-circular courtyards being the most common layout. Large, standing stones were used to make the walls and roof of burial chambers, normally located at one end of the cairn. Burial chambers are typically divided by jamb stones or jamb and sill stones into consecutive burial compartments."

Analogy: ''Tolkien's Catholicism was a significant factor in C. S. Lewis's conversion from atheism to Christianity, although Tolkien was dismayed that Lewis chose to join the Church of England.[87] He once wrote to Rayner Unwin's daughter Camilla, who wished to know the purpose of life, that it was "to increase according to our capacity our knowledge of God by all the means we have, and to be moved by it to praise and thanks."[88] He had a special devotion to the blessed sacrament, writing to his son Michael that in "the Blessed Sacrament ... you will find romance, glory, honour, fidelity, and the true way of all your loves upon earth, and more than that".[T 3] He accordingly encouraged frequent reception of Holy Communion, again writing to his son Michael that "the only cure for sagging of fainting faith is Communion." He believed the Catholic Church to be true most of all because of the pride of place and the honour in which it holds the Blessed Sacrament.[T 10] In the last years of his life, Tolkien resisted the liturgical changes implemented after the Second Vatican Council, especially the use of English for the liturgy; he continued to make the responses in Latin, loudly, ignoring the rest of the congregation.[80]

There does in fact seem to be strangely little written or thought about Joseph of Arimathea, apart from latter stories of receiving the blood of Christ in the 'Cup' of the Last Supper, which we owe to Robert de Boron. Even going by the bare bones of the Gospel narratives, if it had not been for Joseph of Arimathea there would have been no empty tomb, and no traditional story of the Resurrection!

From a different perspective: "At the very end of The Voice of Experience - the author Laing narrates one of his unmatchable vignettes. One of the fascinating aspects of this case history is that it manifests  so many of the traditional shamanic elements, particularly with the woman involved becoming an animal. Laing mentions hound but i suspect a wolf was more likely to have been the case. What is particularly important - is the lesson that Laing learned: 'the distinction between possibility and impossibility is usually among the first to go' and the openmindedness that this leads me to have towards the next thing that my next patient will say to me.  It begins on Good Friday. She lived in a remote house. It was empty until Monday. She was expecting nobody. At three o'clock {'zenith'?} in the afternoon she was meandering aimlessly through the house when a fierce white heat began to pierce the middle of her back behind her solar plexus...It was the same as ten years ago. She had a few seconds to decide whether to resist {she felt if she did she would perish} or to go along with it {if she did she might go mad}. She decided to go along with it. As soon as she made the decision she became calm and lucid. She observed she was not moving herself, but that she was being moved by her solar plexus {'belly'}. She looked on calmly as she was moved to go to the bedroom to bring down a blanket, to make a lair as for a dog under the kitchen table. Why she was moved to do that, she had no idea at the time. "

A {working?} example {i.e.,''buffers'' in relation to ''walls''}: "A very important moment in the work of oneself is when a man begins to distinguish between his personality and his essence. A man's real I, his individuality, can grow only from his essence. It can be said that a man's individuality is his essence, grown up, mature. But in order to enable essence to 'grow up', it is first of all necessary first of all to weaken the constant pressure of personality upon it, because the obstacles to the growth of essence are contained in personality. If we take an average cultured man we shall see that in the vast majority of cases his personality is the active element in him while his essence is the passive element. The inner growth of a man cannot begin so long as this order of things remains unchanged. Personality must become passive and essence active. This can only happen if 'buffers' are removed or weakened, because 'buffers' are the chief weapon by the help of which personality holds essence in 'subjection'. " ['In Search of the Miraculous'.

South West corner / 'boundary' of Egypt is the location of Jebel Uwainat, as speculated and researched by such individuals as R. Bauval and T. Brophy, within the book 'Black Genesis'. That same anchor point that has along its East / West alignment both Nabta Playa and Abu Simbel. All South of those main 'monuments'. South West in relation to North East. Uwainet in relation to the Nile Delta. 'Eyes' in relation to 'ears'.

Nabta Playa, what the author calls a ''miniature Stonehenge.'' The 'stones' of which no larger than 'knee' height. Both hewn / unhewn. One of its 'larger' stones however, may resemble a 'cow'. Formed at the base of a prehistoric lake. [Chapter six]. 'Large' in relation to 'small';. [and / or visa- versa, i.e, the Macro within the Micro]. Cow in relation to 'bull'.

"Proceed to the Western point and face outward. Be aware of the soft contemplative hush of eventide, and of being surrounded by the rich gold of autumn colours and of ripe fruits and nuts, and the gathered corn and all good things of harvest home. See yourself at the border of a still lake...On the horizon before you the setting sun...disappearing below the ground of the purple mountains in the far West, on the other side of the lake, whence you can see far in the distance a winding path leading up to the heights...You notice in the greening azure of the upper sky a few first faint stars, and shinning predominantly amongst them, as herald of them all, the great lamp of Venus, the Evening star. At the same time, be aware of a last flicker of a point of light from Mercury, the 'Messenger' of the gods, and attendant of the 'sun', following its 'master' below the horizon {'W'?}. And then be aware of the mistress of the night sky, the crescent moon, with the evening star between its horns, like a pale lantern in the sky before you {'M'?}. The darkening clouds of the Western horizon almost appear to be like herds of lowing cattle, and you become aware of a great figure of a spotted cow, building over the lake before you. This is Mona, most ancient of sacred symbols..." [Extract from the book by G. Knight].

Refresher: "Suppose one takes the statements that all things are empty, conditional, and in the middle as meaning that even though the 'three are one', while one they are three....Though the three statements are different, they all enter emptiness, but here they do not regress back to the analytic method of the two vehicles, nor do they progress to the separate or complete teachings. This is just the meaning of common emptiness, symbolised by three animals crossing a river." [Page 22 'Stopping and Seeing'].

Canis Minor /ˌknɪs ˈmnər/ is a small constellation in the northern celestial hemisphere. In the second century, it was included as an asterism, or pattern, of two stars in Ptolemy's 48 constellations, and it is counted among the 88 modern constellations. Its name is Latin for "lesser dog", in contrast to Canis Major, the "greater dog"; both figures are commonly represented as following the constellation of Orion the hunter. Canis Minor contains only two stars brighter than the fourth magnitudeProcyon."

"The intriguingly named hamlet of Ratfyn is immediately north of Amesbury, and on its western side is bordered by the River Avon (running north-south), between Durrington to the north and Amesbury to the south.

Antique Indian elephant chess piece representing the king. AND/OR: The Vikings played a variety of board games, including Hnefatafl, which was a war strategy game similar to chess. The game was played on a square board with 64 squares arranged in an 8x8 grid 1The objective of the game was to capture the king game piece ."      What about the Bishops?

In Stonehenge, A Temple Restor’d to the British Druids, written by William Stukeley and published in 1740, the antiquarian wrote of the Stonehenge Avenue (which he also discovered), ‘the eastern branch goes a long way hence, directly east pointing to an ancient ford of the river Avon, called Radfin and beyond that the visto of it bears directly to Harradon Hill beyond the river.‘  He was unaware at that time that, following the Avenue eastwards from the top of King Barrow Ridge, it quickly bears sharply south to West Amesbury and West Amesbury Henge on the banks of the River Avon, the south-eastern terminal point of the Stonehenge Avenue, and does not travel east to the Ratfyn fording point.

However, I do find it interesting that William Stukeley links the Ratfyn fording point of the River Avon with the Stonehenge landscape here, and perhaps his bewilderment hints in fact to a more ancient pathway across the Stonehenge landscape pre-dating even the Avenue. Could this ghost pathway be the route of the Harroway?....

In Aubrey Burl’s ‘Stonehenge‘, published in 2006, he writes: ‘The Harroway led for miles westwards from Dover, Canterbury and Rochester, past Farmham and Basingstoke to Amesbury, then near to Bulford, across a ford whose marshy banks were pink with ragged robin flowers. Then the way rose to Salisbury Plain and Stonehenge. Marvelling bishops and passers-by stared at the impossibly high, weathered pillars understanding nothing about them.’ Aubrey Burl also suggests that the Cuckoo Stone (a sarsen stone west of Woodhenge) marked the route of the Harroway on the western side of the River Avon. He writes that the Cuckoo Stone ‘may have once been used as the builders of the Cursus to become a venerated pointer to the river’, the western terminal of the 1.7 mile Stonehenge Cursus, which was constructed between 3630 and 3375 BC is to the west of the Cuckoo Stone. Burl adds, ‘Similarly, the Heel Stone, once one of a series of antique signposts on the Harroway, was integrated into the Stonehenge complex....

William Stukeley observed of Ratfyn and its fording point on the River Avon that ‘This Radfin-farm seems to retain its Celtic name: meaning a ford or passage for chariots, the old way of carriage here used. Rhedeg currere, rhedegsain cursitare, in Irish reathaimFin in the old Irish, is white. It regards the chalky road which went up from the ford. ’Tis a pretty place, seated in a flexure of the river, which from hence seems to bend its arms both ways, to embrace the beginning of the avenue"

A 'leap' across a GAP?

A working example: ''Buried beneath Stonehenge are found many shards of bones from wolfs, ravens, dogs, foxes and pigs. Skulls from cattle and horns from bison. In the ditches {trench'?} surrounding the stones, hundreds of deer antlers, and at the monuments southern exit are found buried beneath {'facing each other'} - two individual jaw bones belonging to the now extinct wild cow, called an auroch {with horns}. Placed in a symbolic position.'' ['Blowing Up History: Ghosts of Stonehenge' / S2 EP5].

The hypothesis is: ''The hunting of the giant auroch up to the wind swept plateau - that had been a sacred place for thousands of years - even prior to the construction of Stonehenge.''

''Knucklebones, also known as scatter jacks, snobs, astragalus, tali, dibs, fivestones, jacks, or jackstones, among many other names,[1] is a game of dexterity played with a number of small objects that are thrown up, caught, and manipulated in various manners. It is ancient in origin and is found in various cultures worldwide.

Famine Stela.

The name "knucklebones" is derived from the Ancient Greek version of the game, which uses the astragalus (a bone in the ankle, or hock) of a sheep or deer etc.[2] However, different variants of the game from various cultures use other objects, including stones, seashells, seeds, and cubes....Both Herodotus and Plato ascribe a foreign origin to the game. Plato, in Phaedrus, names the Egyptian god Thoth as its inventor, while Herodotus relates that the Lydians, during a period of famine in the days of King Atys, originated this game and indeed almost all other games, with the exception of draughts.[4][7] Both the Iliad and the Odyssey contain allusions to games similar in character to knucklebones.''

Side note: ''Auriga is a constellation in the northern celestial hemisphere. It is one of the 88 modern constellations; it was among the 48 constellations listed by the 2nd-century astronomer Ptolemy. Its name is Latin for '(the) charioteer', associating it with various mythological beings, including Erichthonius and Myrtilus. Auriga is most prominent during winter evenings in the northern Hemisphere, as are five other constellations that have stars in the Winter Hexagon asterism. The crook of Auriga stood for a goat-herd or shepherd. It was formed from most of the stars of the modern constellation; all of the bright stars were included except for Elnath, traditionally assigned to both Taurus and Auriga. Later, Bedouin astronomers created constellations that were groups of animals, where each star represented one animal. The stars of Auriga comprised a herd of goats, an association also present in Greek mythology.[8] The association with goats carried into the Greek astronomical tradition, though it later became associated with a charioteer along with the shepherd.[9]

Begins at the left foot of Orion.

In Greek mythology, Auriga is often identified as the mythological Greek hero Erichthonius of Athens, the chthonic son of Hephaestus who was raised by the goddess Athena. Erichthonius was generally credited to be the inventor of the quadriga, the four-horse chariot.''

Sheep decans?

''Greek astronomers regarded one star as being shared by Auriga and Taurus. On old star maps this star is shown as representing both the right foot of the charioteer and also the tip of the bull’s left horn. When the German astronomer Johan Bayer came to allocate Greek letters to the stars in the early 17th century he designated this star as both Gamma Aurigae and Beta Tauri. However, since the introduction of precise constellation boundaries in 1930, astronomers have assigned Elnath exclusively to Taurus as Beta Tauri and there is no longer a Gamma Aurigae. Hence, under the modern scheme, the bull has kept the tip of his horn but the luckless charioteer has lost his right foot!''

Continued: "Various great Jain teachers of India have been called tirhakaras ''ford makers,'' because they reveal the passage by which bewildered humanity may cross over and beyond the stormy seas of 'Samsara' {the karmic wheel, the recurrence of lives and deaths}. Samsara {literally, ''a flowing with'' the phenomenal flux} induces man to take the line of least resistance. ''Whoever therefore will be a 'friend' of the world is the 'enemy' of god.'' To become a friend of God, man must overcome the demons of his own karma or actions that ever urge him to spine-less acquiescence in the mayic delusions of the world. A knowledge of the iron law of karma encourages the earnest seeker to find the way of final escape from its bonds {gold/silver'?}. Because the karmic slavery of human beings is rooted in the desires of maya-darkened minds, it is with mind control that the yogi concerns himself.

Altynkazgan means "Place where gold is extracted."

''Julius Pokorny believed the name Pannonia is derived from Illyrian, from the Proto-Indo-European root *pen-, "swamp, water, wet" (cf. English fen, "marsh"; Hindi pani, "water").[7]

Pliny the Elder, in Natural History, places the eastern regions of the Hercynium jugum, the "Hercynian mountain chain", in Pannonia and Dacia (now Romania).[8] He also gives us some dramaticised description[9] of its composition, in which the proximity of the forest trees causes competitive struggle among them (inter se rixantes). He mentions its gigantic oaks.[10] But even he—if the passage in question is not an interpolated marginal gloss—is subject to the legends of the gloomy forest. He mentions unusual birds, which have feathers that "shine like fires at night". Medieval bestiaries named these birds the Ercinee.''

"There is only one [surviving] written source about Attila's funeral" Zsófia Masek a post-doctoral researcher of archaeology at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, told Live Science in an email.

That source is the sixth-century ancient writer Jordanes, who wrote in his book "Getica  that Attila was buried in a triple coffin. The innermost was made of gold, the second made of silver and the outermost made of iron. The gold and silver signified the wealth that Attila had gained for the Huns, while the iron signified the Huns' military might.

The servants who helped build the tomb were killed in an attempt to keep its location secret, Jordanes wrote, claiming that he got his information from records written by Priscus, a Roman diplomat who had contact with Attila and others from his court. Attila was also buried with gems, captured enemy weapons and ornaments and the servants were killed so that these "great riches" may "be kept from human curiosity," Jordanes wrote.''

Side note: ''Bastet was the goddess of protection, pleasure, and the bringer of good health. She had the head of a cat and a slender female body.

''His tomb may be located somewhere on the Hungarian Puszta (also known as the Great Hungarian Plain), László Veszprémy, a history professor at Pázmány Péter Catholic University in Budapest, Hungary, told Live Science in an email. Attila made his headquarters somewhere on the plain and his tomb is likely not far from it, Veszprémy said, noting that it may be "next to a river or even in [a] riverbed." The tomb "may survive, if [it wasn't] emptied during the earlier centuries," Veszprémy said.'' [Live Science: 'Lifes Little Mysteries'].

Something hinted at: " The mystical Way is a trackless path on which the pilgrim seeks to 'encounter' god 'face to face', believing utterly in the promise: 'I will give you the treasures of darkness and the secret places.' {Isaiah 45,7}. Finding ones own inner way is by no means dependent upon how others have travelled, but the length of the journey is considerably diminished if spent in the company of one who is also travelling. In this way, the great mystics of the church have 'companioned' pilgrims from the medieval mystics Julian of Norwich, the author of the Cloud of Unknowing, Thomas a Kempis, and St. Catherine of Siena...."

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

The Collins English Dictionary, the Chambers Dictionary, and the Oxford English Dictionary all derive the word "sack" from the French sec, meaning "dry". However, the OED cannot explain the change in the vowel, and it has been suggested by others that the term is actually from the Spanish word sacar, meaning "to draw out", as in drawing out wine from a solera, which led to sacas. The word "sack" is not attested before 1530.

Julian Jeffs writes: "The word sack (there are several spellings) probably originated at the end of the fifteenth century, and is almost certainly derived from the Spanish verb sacar ("to draw out"). In the minutes of the Jerez town council for 1435, exports of wine were referred to as sacas."[Wiki].

Council flag - Isle of Wight: 'Place of Division'.

And/or: "The barrens give way to the Oaks and rich farming land again, and the first of the Westland signs is seen - a wall, topped with a miniature roof of thatch, or of pantiles blotched with lichen {'Queendom'?}. Hereabouts they build great walls of rammed mud, which stand well so long as the wet can be kept from them; hence the quaint little roofs with their piercing eaves winding along beside the road. Soon we come to the dividing of the ways. One road keeps its course through the rich lowlands, and the other climbs the heights towards the uplands of England's greatest plain. If we are going to Glastonbury we choose the upland way, and presently the fields give place to the WIDE, bare turf of the chalk, and dark, sinister bunches of juniper tell us that we are on the Plain: 'Take two twigs of the juniper tree. Cross them. Cross them. Cross them. Look in the coals of the fire of Azrael!' says the old rune. The dark influences of the juniper overflow the road as the scattered clumps thicken on the slopes. It is indeed the tree of the Dark Angel and the Old Gods." [Page 3 'Glastonbury: Avalon of the Heart' / D. Fortune].

horus eyeContinued: "The Hebrews knew it as Neshr, an Eagle, Falcon, or Vulture; and the Chaldee Paraphrase asserted that it was figured on the banners of Dan; but as these tribal symbols properly were for the zodiac, Scorpio was normally ascribed to Dan....In Abraham's day Scorpio was figured as an Eagle. Caesius said that Aquila represented the Eagle of military Rome, or the Eagle of St. John; but Julius Schiller had already made it Saint Catherine the Martyr; and Erhard Weigel...started a new set of constellations based on the heraldry of the Brandenburg Eagle - made up from Aquila, Antinous and the Dolphin."

"The story of Christchurch Priory goes back to at least the middle of the 11th century, as Domesday says there was a priory of twentyfour {24} secular canons here in the reign of Edward the Confessor. The Priory is on the site of an earlier church dating from 800AD. In 1094 a chief minister of William II, Ranulf Flambard, then Dean of Twynham, began the building of a church. Local legend has it that Flambard originally intended the church to be built on top of nearby St. Catherine's Hill but during the night all the building materials were mysteriously transported to the site of the present priory. Although in 1099 Flambard was appointed Bishop of Durham, work continued under his successors. A mid-12th century account recording the legend of the Christchurch Dragon indicates that by 1113 the new church was nearing completion under Dean Peter de Oglander." [Wiki].

'The star of ones BEING is rising'?

The sailor of a ship manned by 150 {'fifteen' link} sailors, fell overboard when a sudden wind caused the waves to be eight cubits high, and was washed up on an island. There he finds shelter and food (he says "there was nothing that was not there").[12] While making a burnt offering to the gods, he hears thunder and feels the earth shake and sees a giant serpent approach him {Lord of Punt}. The serpent asks him three times who had brought him to the island. When the sailor cannot answer, the serpent takes him to where it lives and asks the question three times more. The sailor repeats his story, now saying that he was on a mission for the king....The serpent tells him not to fear and that god has let him live and brought him to the island, and that after 'four' months on the island he will be rescued by sailors he knows and will return home. The serpent then relates a tragedy that had happened to him, saying that he had been on the island with 74 of his kin plus a daughter, and that a star fell and "they went up in flames through it".[13] In some translations, the daughter survives; in others, she perishes with the rest. The serpent advises the sailor to be brave and to control his heart, and if he does so, he will return to his family.''

Side note: "The cloth consists of 58 scenes,[note 1] many with Latin tituli, embroidered on linen with coloured woollen yarns. It is likely that it was commissioned by Bishop Odo of Bayeux, William's maternal half-brother, and made for him in England in the 1070s. In 1729, the hanging was rediscovered by scholars at a time when it was being displayed annually in Bayeux Cathedral. The tapestry is now exhibited at the Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux in BayeuxNormandy, France (49.2744°N 0.7003°W).

The designs on the Bayeux Tapestry are embroidered rather than in a tapestry weave, so it does not meet narrower definitions of a tapestry.[5] Nevertheless, it has always been referred to as a tapestry until recent years when the name "Bayeux Embroidery" has gained ground among certain art historians. It can be seen as a rare example of secular Romanesque art."

Continued: ''Bishop Auckland (/ˈɔːk.lənd/ AWK-lənd) is a market town and civil parish at the confluence of the River Wear and the River Gaunless in County Durham, England. It is 12 miles (19 km) northwest of Darlington and 12 miles (19 km) southwest of Durham.

Much of the town's early history surrounds the Bishops of Durham and the establishment of Auckland Castle's predecessor, a hunting lodge, which became the main residence of Durham Bishops. This is reflected in the first part of the town's name.[5][6][7][8] During the Industrial Revolution, the town grew rapidly as coal mining became its largest industry.[9] Decline in the coal mining industry during the late twentieth century has changed the town's largest sector to manufacturing.''

''Tweed may represent an Old Brittonic name meaning "border".[4] A doubtful proposal is that the name is derived from a non-Celtic form of the Indo-European root *teuha- meaning "swell, grow powerful".

''In order to really understand the unique history of County Durham we must first go back into Anglo-Saxon times, to a period long before England or Scotland existed, when Great Britain was not one kingdom like today, but several kingdoms spread throughout the land. One of the largest and most powerful of the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms was Northumbria which extended from the Humber to the River Forth, making up almost a third of the entire mainland of Britain. During its greatest period in the seventh and eighth centuries, Northumbria was a great centre for arts, learning and early Christianity and was especially noted for the great saints it produced, like Cuthbert, Wilfrid and the Venerable Bede. Northumbria’s downfall was brought about in later centuries, by successive invasion from Vikings and Scots, so by the time of the Norman Conquest, it was reduced to an earldom stretching from the River Tweed to the Tees. This Earldom roughly consisted of the region we now call ‘North-Eastern England’, an area still often referred to as ‘Northumbria’ today.''

On the upper part, boiling water and a numberless mulitude of people in it. I went up to percieve the sight and saw an anthroparian, a barber grown grey {i.e., lead link} with age, who said to me: 'What are you looking at?' I replied that i was astonished to see the seething of the water, and men burning yet alive. He answered me thus: 'The sight that you see is the entrance and exit of the transformation....This is the place of the operation called embalming. Those who seek to obtain the art enter here and become spirit by escaping from the body.' As we spoke, the boiling continued and i saw a brazen {bronze} man holding a leaden tablet in his hand and he spoke with a loud voice looking upon the tablet: 'All those undergoing the punishment - be calm - to each take a leaden tablet and write with their own hand, and to keep theirs eyes upraised in the AIR and their mouths open, until their throats SWELL.''

Give three knocks in rapid succession and you will hear a voice ask, 'Who knocks at the door of the treasure, unknowing of how to solve the secrets'? You must answer: 'I am Judar, the Son of Omar.' And the door will open and there will come towards you a figure with a burning sword in his hand. He will say to you, 'If you be that man, STRETCH forth thy neck, that i may strike off thy head.' Then stretch forth your neck and fear not, for when he lifts his hand and smites you with his sword, he will fall down before you, and you will see in him a body without soul {sans}. But if you gainsay him he will slay you. When you have done this go down the tunnel until you see another door. This door will FLY open and you will see two dragons, which will open there mouths and FLY at you. Put forth both hands and they will each bite each a hand and fall down dead, but if you resist them, they will slay you. Then go to the next door and knock, whereupon your 'mother' will come forth....'How will i be able to endure these terrors'? Fear not for they are semblances WITHOUT life.''

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

Each man is a part of the 'creator', or Cosmic man; he has a heavenly body as well as one of earth. The human eye sees the physical form, but the inner eye penetrates more profoundly , even to the universal pattern of which each man is an integral and individual part. " [Same book].

Question. ALL nothing more than fantasists?

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

Side note: "Things like Google Translate can match the hidden patterns between different human languages and translate them....AI tools can find these invisible patterns that we cannot see and link them to patterns between languages....It finds the shapes of certain phrases - from billions of data - without the need of a dictionary. It does not even know that it is dealing with a language." ['Royal Institution Xmas Lectures' / 2023].

Could it be used someday for a mindset - within {say} a curriculum?

Creators of widows and orphans? Question. What would Muhammad do/say if he lived in this generation?

Oleg Penkovsky. The real Russian hero.  A TRUE Cossack. A team player - on the WORLD stage. R.I.P.

Something more heavy going; something that requires a firmer headscratch..."Karma is thus seen as the law of evolution, in which the hierarchies are seated and what is called 'unconscious nature' is in reality an aggregate of forces manipulated by 'semi-intelligent beings' {Elementals} guided by high planetary spirits {Dhyani-Chohans}, whose collective aggregate [i.e.,higher/lower link] forms the manifested verbum of the UNmanifested LOGOS."[Extract from the book 'The Magister'. Emphasis, this readers]. Try ''elementals'' before those first impressions dictate {suggest?} something else.

N.B. Dhyani-Chohans = "A Sanskrit Tibetan compound = 'Lord of meditation'. A general term for celestial beings 'beyond' human evolution. They are similar to the Angelic Hosts of the Christian faith and/or the Elohim and 'messengers' of the Hebrews"

"...can move mountains." = {Analogy of?} "The whole purpose of gnostic initiation was to bring initiates to spiritual maturity, where they would experience themselves to be completely free of any external authority and become their own 'Christ' or 'King'. " [From the book 'Jesus and the Lost Goddess' by T. Freke and P. Gandy]. Question. ''ridge pole'' ?

'King' in relation to 'mountain' {'higher' of the 'lower'?} - ALL as a means to an understanding. Try the 'Mona Lisa' for an alternative 'view'.

"They understand the legitimacy of every belief and the wisdom behind every knot tied in the fabric of Reality. By excepting each knot for what it is, they learn what it has to teach, and by not allowing themselves to be limited and defined by it, they allow for the untying of every knot. Only by standing in all stations of human possibility and not being defined by any of them can they achieve the Station of NO Station." [ From the book by T. Cheetham. Emphasis, this readers]. Try ''knot''.

Single KNOT: In the form of 'two triangles'. Above/below. Fire/water. That same shape that can be seen on the 'hind quarters' {left} of the 'headless' Sphinx on the east side at Gebel el Silsila. Question. What god/goddess represents ''an hour''?

And/or: ''We have here a small timer, that was used to calculate the speed of a vessel. Still within its 'glass' cage - as when it sank 250 years ago. A twentyeight second timer. When you run a length of rope over the side of the vessel - where there are knots every fortyseven feet -  after 28 seconds, the knots were counted, that gave the speed of the vessel. Thats where the word ''knot'' came from.'' [Digging for Britain' / S.7  E.2].

'Ploughing the waves'?

"The Moon completes the full 360° zodiac circle against the stars in about 27.3 days (Sidereal Lunar Month). Lunar Mansions (also called Lunar Stations) are the equal segments of the ecliptic through which the Moon passes in its orbit. Various cultures have used various divisions of the ecliptic. However the most frequent methods were to divide Zodiac into 27 or 28 equal segments, because Moon spends cca 1 day & night in each Lunar Mansion: Division - 27 Mansions:

  • ''Eight''?

    - Mostly used in: Indian astrology
    - Mansion is called: Nakshatra
    - Preferred zodiac: Sidereal
    - Length of mansion: 360°/27 = 13°20’00’’

  • Division - 28 Mansions:
    - Mostly used in: Western/Arabic astrology
    - Mansion is called: Manzil
    - Preferred zodiac: Tropical
    - Length of mansion: 360°/28 = 12°51’25’’

It's said, that knowing the Lunar Mansion of your birth Moon can give you vital information about your personality, inner driving forces and purpose.

 

Question. Pharaoh = 'Great House'. Therefore what does it represent?

"Yin is like a mother-of-pearl image hidden in the deepest recesses of the house." Quote by Dr. Jung. Try ''pearl."

Side note: "The occultist who uses elaborate diagrams of astral planes and etheric bodies liberally sprinkled with Sanskrit words can be as far from Gnosis as can the psychologist who employs clever two-dimensional maps of the psyche with short hand expressions such as the ''shadow,'' the ''anima,'' or the ''wise old man,'' as though these were concrete realities instead of symbolic pointers to incomprehensible mysteries in the vast recesses of the unconscious." [Page 36 'The Gnostic Jung' / S. Hoeller].

dog2Represented by Orion the 'Hunter', and that 'spark' of a potential....'Sirius'. Start point of which = East, i.e., ''the heliacal rising of the Dog Star'' [i.e.,''lower'' link]. See anything. Hear anything? Or put another way, as one or two of these authors have done..."Knock, knock. Anything dawned"? For this reader, the real question is... Sense or nonsense. A possibility or not? Either way at least an understanding of a subject can be got. No poetic prose intended.

N.B. ''Hunter'' in the spiritual {internal} SENSE of the word. Hence......

In Greek mythology, Orion was a hunting companion of the huntress-goddess Artemis. In some versions of this story, Artemis killed Orion. Then her father, Zeus, the king of the gods, immortalized the giant huntsman by placing him in the sky as a constellation....Accounts of his death vary widely: some legends have him killed by Artemis for trying to rape her, others of Apollo's jealousy over Artemis' love of Orion; still other legends have him killed by a monstrous scorpion.''

'Shepherd' to enlarge.

As seen from a different perspective: "There was also Tros, the son of Alastor - he came up to Achilles and 'clasped his knees' in the hope that he would spare him and not 'kill' him but let him 'go', because they were 'both' of the same 'age'. The implication behind this last remark is that the personal star of Tros {Cetii} is close to the same altitude in the sky as Sirius, and would have appeared on the horizon visible from Greece at about the time Sirius appeared in the sky." ['Homer's Secret Iliad']. Latitude/Longitude link?

The Hendaye Cross. A 'cube' like structure for a base, on which to ''build'' on?

As in the example of the ‘birth place of Zeus’ [ Explained elsewhere ]. Provence - South France, another example. Some say from where the ’romances’ came. Those ‘tales’ where most had ‘twelve’ members. That link to the symbolism of ’Thirteen’. Explained elsewhere. That same place that has links to Mary/Joseph and the Hendaye Cross. Mentioned elsewhere. Everything has a beginning/end. Which each of those words; independent of each other; can be a representation of.

A more ‘head scratching’ example is the Hebrew tree. Representation of which is ‘North-south’. Top/down as opposed to bottom/up or what later became known as dry/wet way as opposed to wet/dry. [ Explained elsewhere. A link to ‘Sky religion’ ] As ‘explained’ by such authors as G. Scholem or Dion Fortune.

For a more ‘earthy’ representation of the same; if only for this reader; is a publication by Mr William Gray. ’ The ladder of lights’. Only this time in reverse order, i.e., South-north. Only to be read when a good understanding has been achieved. There are however...’nuggets of information’...to be found should curiosity get the better of the predicted ‘head scratch’. If so...wear a hat.

Analogy of same; but now from its ''opposite end'',i.e.,from an unknown [unconscious?] aspect and/or 'angle'..."His sons illness also seemed to be affecting Paul. What if Paul became unwell too, who would be there for his son? Each word i wrote seemed feebler than the last and then i realised, despite all the nuggets of perceived wisdom, i was powerless..." [Extract from the book by Q. S. Lam].

''Unknown'' - in the sense that the above author has no connection on any level, concerning this subject and yet those universal archetypes [keys?] are used [unconsciously] - constantly; throughout; within her own internal struggles. Question. Coincidence or a meaningful one? Others elsewhere to access one way or the other, i.e.,.

Coincidence or a meaningful one? Try ''fingers''

"I would like to imagine my brain as a majestic cathedral with stained glass windows. Muli-coloured rays of light streaming through, painting a blue haven in which to create alchemy with my fingers, stirring up boundless energy from within, revitalizing my tired bones, letting me soar with my children, taking them to another place that is magical and safe." [Q. S. Lam].

Side note: ''Finger drains'' written about. Purposely named ''finger drains'' when being constructed on Oak Island.

"In this small circle of light, surrounded by darkness, we are, as Plato says, ''strange prisoners'' and psychology and esotericism both seek the keys to our escape and restoration." [Extract from the book 'The Magister'].

"The truth is that man gets the fruit of his actions from 'above', and the fruits correspond to the nature of his actions." [Part one, 'Play of Consciousness'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Side note: ''The fruit man is created from 'nine' kinds of fruit, the flower woman must have been created from nine kinds of flower.....'Not of father, not of mother, was my blood was my body....nine powers of nine flowers, nine 'powers' in me combined, nine buds of plant and tree. Long and white are my fingers. As the ninth wave of the sea.' In Wales and Ireland primroses are reckoned 'fairy' flowers and in English folk tradition represent 'wantonness' {i.e., 'the primrose path of dalliance' / Hamlet} " [ Extract from a Welsh poem 'Hans Blodeuwedd' pages 41/2 'The White Goddess/ R. Graves].

''The number nine can be variously interpreted....'' ['The Magnified Sacred Three' from the book 'The Mystery of Numbers' / A. Schimmel].

Male or 'female'?

From a dalliance {'flowers'}  - to something on a 'firmer footing'  REPRESENTED with trees  - BOTH having to come together {'gathering'/'harvest'?}  for something to be ''understood'' {i.e., an action of the mind}. Hence that final sentence - which originally came on line 153 - ''as the ninth wave of the sea''. A process beginning. In the unconscious sense of the word {i.e., ''sea''}. Therefore prior to ''fire''. Recall the origins of the 'blacksmith' . Something beginning at the ''back of the head''. Spirit/soul in relation to the objective process therefore minds eye. In order to understand {'see'} something. {Process/mechanics of}. That something that is relevant to the individual.

And/or: ''153'' in relation to ''net'' and/or ''fish'' {i.e., archetype} - ''fishermen catching fish''.

Fishers of Men?

Understanding all the above gives the reader clues to the ''Melusine'' aspect within subject material as mentioned by G. Knight. Try part 1.

''Without mRNA, your genetic code would never get used by your body. Proteins would never get made. And your body wouldn’t – actually couldn’t – perform its functions. Messenger ribonucleuc acid, or mRNA for short, plays a vital role in human biology, specifically in a process known as protein synthesis. mRNA is a single-stranded molecule that carries genetic code from DNA in a cell’s nucleus to ribosomes, the cell’s protein-making machinery.''

One of the 'mummies' found belonging to the Cloud People of Peru. Known especially for being white. 'Transforming fingers'? Get into that mindset to determine {find} a treasure.

Continued: A {working?} example: Quote by Rick Lagina of Oak Island fame - looking through a multitude of papers left by an Ex. president of the U.S.A. {F.D.R.} - hoping to find clues as to the purpose {intent?} of its construction: "Sifting through volumes of information to get some little treasure." {Series 4. Episode 11].

Refresher: ''Many years ago the English psychologist, F. W. H. Meyes, suggested that - ''hidden in the depth of our being is a rubbish heap as well as a treasure house''.

The main reason why Mr Gray has been mentioned {several para's back} however is very similar; but now in reverse; as to the example given of Mr I-De-Loyola. If only for this reader. A very plain; no nonsense chap; he explains all in plain English; for this reader at least; even though he had a penchant/fetish for wearing all the available attire. Proud no doubt of his chosen interest.

His life/works depicted in the book ‘The Old Sod’. By A. Richardson. Gives the reader a good idea of such an individuals ‘beliefs’...

[‘Book Four’. By A. Crowley ]. And/or...

knot

Knotted?

A {working?} example: "The first step along this path is to notice that we live in 'different states of consciousness'. This is not as obvious as it sounds. I am not here referring to moments of happiness in contrast to times of depression, but to a 'state of being' that puts us in touch with a deeper reality. Perhaps you have had moments of experiencing such a liberation that comes from these higher states {eureka moment?} of being. Moments of great joy, or gratitude for being alive, or while standing before a scene of beauty. Moments when our awareness is lifted beyond the knots of normal living...These are higher states of consciousness that opens onto new horizons of understanding and wisdom." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way']. Try ''knots'' and/or ''horizon'' etc. to see same principles in a broader {horizon?} context, i.e.,within the subject material AS A WHOLE _ "since the written word came into common use."

Try ''knot'' for {as?} an example {experience?} of that ''higher state of being''.

Refresher: King Aha - the very first of Egypt. Predates all others. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

''Upon the shoulders of giants''?

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. Should'nt 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}.

 

Quin-tessence.

'The star of ones being is rising'. Which one?

Continued: Abstract definition of same {principle?} - as seen from a different perspective {i.e.,'angle'}: "When we enter the underworld we are not exploring our separated selves or our subconscious, but moving our spirit or true core and source of energy and consciousness into the planetary mind"........"Thus we gain access to those regions defined as unconscious by modern psychology but these are both thresholds and matrices for further changes of awareness and the effects of the underworld initiation do not come exclusively from either an individual or a collective unconscious. To put this another way, the energies liberated by earth light ['divine' bit link] resonate through the so called unconscious, which can give them either individual of collective pattern and form."[i.e., archetypes]. Chapter three 'Power Within the Land'. R. J. Stewart. [Words in brackets, this readers].

Starfish?

From a different pespective {something new learned}: ''Air itself needs to breath, to renew its vitality. The air of caves and caverns that is not renewed is no longer vitalizing....The true source of life is the absolute material vacuum - the 'void' - which is pure energy. The temple of Luxor teaches us that after...." [Page 26 'The Egyptian Miracle' / R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz].

Try ''void''.

A practical example: ''I hate emptiness''. Eric  Cantona ['Rise of the Premier League' / 13.2.21].

Understanding this subjects overall framework gives an understanding to those 'implications'. More importantly that same understanding that can be got from objectivity and research, gives the same result.

And/or..." A fundamental approach here is to consider these as a spectrum of perspectives, each useful at a particular step, until a new vantage point {key} is gained and a new perspective gives a view to new horizons." [Extract from the book 'The Magister' ].

Question. Breathing easier?

A working example {i.e.,a work in progress}..."Typical lodge meetings consist of enacting a series of short plays that contain a moral message and encourage personal insight and understanding. All of this is contained in a complicated story involving the building of Solomon's Temple...I soon came to realize that there was a considerable difference between my understanding, based on what i had been taught at school and through religious teachings, and what had apparently happened based on historical records. In particular, it is what has been left out, deliberately or otherwise, that distorts the imagery. It is what we are not told that colours our perceptions. When one is aware of the intervening facts, a new angle {key} on events is presented." Try ''method''.

'Angle' in relation to..."At the commencement of the Masonic ceremonies, it is pointed out that Freemasonry is a 'peculiar system of morality, veiled in allegory'. I thought i knew what an allegory was, but i still looked up the word in an Oxford Dictionary to ensure i had a correct interpretation. The answer stated was: ''narrative describing one subject under the guise of another''. " [From the book by K. Gest].

Analogy:..."The popular notion that pirates were nothing more than illiterates who sported peg legs and eye patches is largely an illusion. Some like Francis Drake were high nobles. Others like Henry Morgan and Captain Kidd were highly intelligent sailors and shrewd business people. Just as sophisticated were many members of crew. Doctors, masons, carpenters and experts in most professions." ['Curse of Oak Island' / Dec.2016]. Follow the title to see if you agree or disagree.

"The 'ordinary man' must make a spiritual start somewhere, sometime. The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Lao-tze observed."

'Three and four' ?

Side note: ''Like 41 and 101, 1001 exceeds the great number and therefore comes to mean 'infinite / numberless'. One may think of Binkir kilise, 1001 churches, in Anatolia, or the best known example, 1001 Nights. This number leads to infinite extension, although attempts have been made to explain it as an allusion to the heptagon and mysterious relations between the prime numbers 7, 11, and 13." [Page 278 'Mystery of Numbers' / A. Schimmel].

feet

Footstool?

Continued: Unlike shamanism they focus on certain words {archetypes?} and concepts [i.e.,'ritual' stuff] in order to 'gain access'{'experience'?} to learn more {lucid dreaming?}. Other books are by Gareth Knight and especially ‘The western way’. By C. and J. Matthews. Plenty of ‘nuggets’ to be found. Most important of all...easy on the mind. No headgear required...but don’t forget that pinch of salt.

Shamans access those same states but by way of certain ‘beverages’, i.e., Ribena plus supplements. Metaphorically speaking of course. Hopefully no Ribena addicts will take it literally. Its part of their culture. What they were taught from birth. Both in their own way are specialist sub-divisions of the overall subject. Both supposedly have different ways of gaining access to those ‘altered states’, [what the author of 'The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life', calls "different levels of consciousness". First chapter]. Where more information can be ‘found’ {assessed?}.

What is commonly known as the ‘Akashic [or Akasha] records’. Or 'Cayces hall of records'. Symbolic, of a potential...to learn something further. Within what is loosely termed as the ‘etheric’ and/or ‘astral’ levels. [ ‘Astral doorways’. By J.Brennan ]. Or 'Initiation into Hermetics' by F. Bardon]. A good book that explains both those concepts in practical terms, 'The Zelator'. Mentioned within.

All enlarged elsewhere - find them to understand them - BEFORE those first impressions ''tell one'' {dictate?} - something else.

"Likewise, a union of the opposite sides of our brains - a harmonious fusion of the left, or Logos side, with the right, or Eros side, is an ideal psychological state ['sacred marriage' and/or 'divine couple' link]. And to enter into a shamanic state/trance, shamans too depend on a harmonious union of the two hemispheres of the brain, relying on drugs, repetitive drumming, or some other repetitive stimulus to lull the left side of the brain into a relaxed state, which allows 'Logos' to combine with 'Eros', and which in turn allows the shaman to enter an altered state of consciousness." [Quote [in part] from Amazon customer in relation to the book 'The Grail: Relic of an Ancient Religion']. Emphasis, this readers.

The paragraph can be defined as the difference between the ''slow but sure way'' [i.e., study] and the short cut way.

"As steps in man's awakening..."

"...Yet all details could be clearly seen in the 'green' and faintly 'orange' lights that cast the 'purple' shadows of the sphere of Yesod where rules the Lord of the Moon who is king of this land of life. He who is first born of the Great Mother Dana, the ruler of the non-human peoples [i.e., archetypes] of the Etheric and Astral planes of consciousness." Recall what 'moon' and ''astral'' symbolism represents.

Understanding what all cultures imply, by the word ''divine'', regardless of time or place, in relation to that remaining framework [i.e., A/B/C ], allows the reader to make sense of the above - by study, ie.,the READERS Way; not the 'ritual' one. As it does with the following...

"Anamnesis literally means 'recollection'. It is a term used by Plato and by the later commentators on Plato, called the Neo-Platonists. In our context here, it signifies that the work in which we are engaged is to bring about a state which we already exist within - not a new state which must be created out of nothing. We aspire to a pre-existing state, not a new one." [Extract from the book 'The Magister'. Mentioned elsewhere]. For other 'connections' to evaluate the parts within the whole try ''remembering'' / ''forgetting'' as indicated elsewhere, i.e.,try Part 1.

An intuitive leap? Or a leap of faith?

"The Ancient Wisdom is inscribed in glowing letters in the akasha of the heart: let the disciple plunge within and read its message for himself. He will find that the deathless Consciousness within, though separate from all the organs of the sense, yet shines with their powers. In fact the apparent power of the eye to see depends entirely on the power of vision inherent in that Light which sees through the eye but which the eye does not see; which hears through the ear but which the ear does not hear; which thinks through the mind but which the mind does not think. It is the unseen Seer, the unheard Hearer, the unthought Thinker. Other than 'It,' there is no Seer, no hearer, no thinker. It is the Self, the Inner Ruler {'archon'?} the Deathless."

A practical example? {or a work in progress?}..."All that concerned Jesus was that his teachings and his life work should be 'inscribed in heaven' - that is, indelibly, eternally imprinted upon the Akashic Tablets of Life. He never wrote down anything himself. The teachings of the 'Christ' within him were universal, for all time: generalisations on such a cosmic scale that they can be applied anywhere, in any period of earth's history."

I recall writing the first line of the scroll and groaning at the prospect of beginning the journey, knowing it was going to be a feat of endurance. By the end [2012], my hand was aching and swollen. There was an addictive quality to working on the scroll plunging you into a meditative state and being transported to other 'worlds'."

"Astral plane was an old term for the realm of the visual imagination." [Chapter one, 'Astral Doorways' by J. H. Brennan]. Question 'shadow' or 'anima/s' aspect?

Side note: "Not only was Shiloh a promise and a person—our mighty Savior, but it was also a place. When it was built, it was located a little northeast of the center of Ephraim. It is mentioned thirtytwo times in the Old Testament.....

These chairs were generally believed to be used by farmers whilst waiting in draughty barns for sheep to lamb, and also to keep sickly lambs under the seat to keep them warm.

In 12th-11th century BC, the Israelites built the Tabernacle and the Ark of the Covenant rested in the city of Shiloh. Here, it rested for three centuries where the tribes of Israel would visit for feasts or peace offerings. From the time Israel entered the land until the time of the prophet Samuel, the Ark of the Covenant remained in the Tabernacle at Shiloh. This was also the central location where the land was divided up into the 12 sections for the 12 tribes (found in Joshua 18). And this was the background for Hannah when she visited the tabernacle to pour out her heart to God, begging Him for a child—whom God gave her Samuel (1 Samuel 1:1-283:21).

Head/Feet = Aries/Pisces?

When we first meet Hannah, we know she’s barren and wept bitterly for a child. So much so, the Priest Eli thinks she’s drunk. But God hears her prayers and helps her birth one of the greatest men in the Bible, Samuel.

She takes her son back to the tabernacle once he’s weaned because she promised to dedicate his life to God." ['Crosswalk.com'].

"Ephraim is a position apparently of some importance, since the position of Baal-hazor (probably = Tell `Asur) where Abraham's sheep-farm was located, is determined by the relation to it (2 Samuel 13:23). That it lay North of Jerusalem seems to be indicated in 2 Samuel 13:34. It may be identical with the Ephraim of Eusebius, Onomasticon, 20 Roman miles North of Jerusalem, and therefore to be sought somewhere in the neighbourhood of Sinjil and el-Lubban. Connected with this may have been the name Aphaerema, a district in Samaria mentioned in 1 Maccabees 11:34; Ant, XIII, iv, 9.

"The meaning of the word "Shiloh" is unclear. Sometimes, it is translated as a Messianic title, which means He Whose It Is[3] or as Pacific, Pacificator or Tranquility and refers to the Samaritan Pentateuch.[4] Regardless, the name of Shiloh the town is derived from שלה‎ and may be translated as Tranquility Town."

From a different perspective: ''What happened next was a physical and unexpected  manifestation of the goddess energy {synchronicity?}. I found myself in Egypt on a boat in the middle of the Nile, my period having arrived ten days early....I wasn't the only one. Everywhere the story was the same. Some five days early others seven and one who after several years without having any, having reached the age of sixtyfour - began the cycle again. The common factor it would seem was Philae. We asked for a cleansing and we got it.'' [Page 299/300 'Dreams of Isis: A Womans Spiritual Sojourn' / N. Ellis].

wheelA different perspective: {synchronistic?}..."Hovenweep is vast. I moved back and forth over the land, searching and ''feeling'' for the right place for this most important ceremony to be located. Finally, as i walked over a certain area, all the mountains and the ancient nearby Anasazi canyon seemed to come into alignment. Just off to the south, only a few feet away, was an Anasazi ruin that commanded primal importance long ago because it was on the highest point. I knew in my heart that this was the right place. As i looked around, a large rock ''spoke to me'' to be the central stone, and i placed it on the ground in what would become the very center of the medicine wheel. Four more living stones were found to mark the four directions. With this basic setup, the wheel ended up being about 'thirtyfive' feet in diameter..." ['Serpent of Light Beyond 2012'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Question. What's the difference between the 'X' and the cross symbol. The author of the above book defines it by way of ''a gift in understanding''. Enlarged elsewhere. Clue. Link to the song - 'Amazing Grace'

"Then Devlin spoke, and what he said gave goosebumps to those who were near enough to hear him. For he said that the medicine wheel {with his index finger he drew an imaginary circle on his t-shirt} has a cross in it {north-south and east-west}. And the problem was that some people were doing ceremony ''almost right.'' But instead of having energy in the form of a cross, he said, they had it in the form of an 'X'. He indicated the imaginary X inside the imaginary medicine wheel on his shirt and said, ''The X leads to the dark side.'' {And/or 'shadow' aspect?}. This was the exact same image given in my vision on the bus before we sang the Anasazi children on their way to freedom ['grace' link}.'' Emphasis, this readers.

The {story?} has to be read to understand the 'predicament' of the Anasazi children and parents in understanding why 'grace' {i.e., a true intent of mind; intent of purpose etc i.e.,by way of - as ONE example - as in the above example ''a ritual ceremony''} has, in relation, to the norm. Try ''bosom'' for its universal link.

Analogy. Different time - different place: "With the 19th century resurgence of interest in Celtic mythology, the Tor became associated with Gwyn ap Nudd, the first Lord of the Otherworld (Annwn). The Tor came to be represented as an entrance to Annwn or to Avalon. The Tor is supposedly a gateway into "The Land Of The Dead (Avalon)." Enlarged elsewhere.

It was the 'wall' that made him. Will it be the wall that breaks him?

A change of pace {analogy?}..."Moses made such a wall for himself when he said to the Israelites: 'Watch yourselfs, so that you do not try to follow them after they have been destroyed before you' {Deut. 12:30. LXX}. For if someone does not watch his mind attentively, he will find that, after he has cut down the passions, the images of past fantasies begin to emerge again like young shoots. If he constantly allows these images to force there way into his intellect and does not bar their entry {'flaming swords' at the 'boundaries' of Eden?} - the passions will once more establish themselves within him; despite his previous victory, he will have to struggle against them again. For, after being tamed and taught to graze like cattle, the passions can become savage once more through our negligence and regain the ferocity of wild beasts. It is to prevent this that Scripture says: 'Do not try to follow them after they have been destroyed before you'; that is, we must not allow our soul to form the habit of taking pleasure in fantasies of this kind, and so relapse into its previous condition." ['The Philokalia' / translated by G.E.H. Palmer etc]. Try ''cattle'' to broaden ones view {horizon?}.

Understanding ''cattle'' symbolism gives further clues to such places as Napta Playa and/or The Orkney Islands, i.e., from a N/E - S/W standpoint {and/or 'start/end' point?}.

''...made such a wall for himself..." = the 'HA HA' lawn? Landscape equivalent? Recall one of the meanings behind the name Apollo.

"Psychology and esotericism set out to explore the darkness outside of our knowledge, whether it be dwelling in the 'unconscious' or the 'astral', the mundus imaginalis, {Corbin} or the dark side {i.e.,shadow self?} of the Tree of Life {anima?}." [Extract from the book 'The Magister'. Emphasis, this readers].

"...5 and 7, the sacred numbers; they rest in the 12...for 12 was a very large circle of meanings and activities. It can be seen first of all as the product of 3 x 4, which makes it a combination in which both the material and spiritual are contained, and secondly as the sum of the two meaningful numbers 5 and 7; the sacred numbers: They rest in the 12 - the closed circle..."

"Thirty is a number connected with order and justice. In ancient Rome, a man had to reach the age of thirty to become a Tribune; and according to Biblical traditions, both Moses and Jesus began their public preaching [teaching?] at that age.

"Some heads are graced by golden crowns. Golden crowns and jewelled diadems detract from the beautiful tresses of other heads because the tresses of beauties are traps of love, which is the heart's throne. A golden crown is a lifeless thing; the wearer is the heart's beloved." 'Signs of the Unseen' / Jalaluddin Rumi]. 'Thirty' being the 'sign' spoken about.

Analogy: "...above the rose, sealing the vessel,[i.e.,the alchemists ''vessel''] which is a ''soul with no leak at the seams,'' is a crown. The crown - which is a triple crown - signifies Kether, the top of the tree. It bears a single pearl in its apex; 'the pearl of great price'...." Enlarged elsewhere. Try ''leak''.

There the gods of love and hate , the daemons of lust, and pride, and anger, the devils of malice, cruelty, and revenge, vanity, envy, and jealousy, may hold high carnival, they may stir up the emotions, and, unless subdued by Reason, they may grow strong enough to dethrone it..."

nnnAstronomical equivalent {in part}: "Ares sister, Strife, 'whose fury never tires...who from being first low in stature, grows till she uprears her head to heaven'...is thought to record a notable aspect of Mars during its orbit around the sun, when it changes in brightness as its distance and position relative to the earth vary. When Mars is moving towards maximum brightness, we propose that the planet is represented by Strife, who in Book 4 is first involved in a minor skirmish that erupts into full scale war. Homer uses Ares to restate his almost obsessional concern with the apparent arc of the celestial sphere, and a sequence in Book 5 shows Mars ascending to the dome of the heavens. The sequence begins when Mars rises in the east and Homer says: 'She {Isis} found fierce Ares waiting on the left of the battle. As Mars rises in the skies, Homer says: 'Ares is now lording it in the field', and the planet reaches its highest point at the meridian when 'As a dark cloud in the sky when it comes on to blow after heat, even so did Diomedes see Ares ascend into the broad heavens'." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Refresher: Eastern equivalent = the purpose behind the epic 'The Bhagavat Gita', i.e.,"The astral plane is also the Kurukshetra, both of humanity as a whole and of the individual human unit. It is the battleground whereon must be found the Waterloo of every aspirant." [Extract taken from the book by A. Bailey]. Link to objectivity over subjectivity. Benefit of - especially in relation to those first impressions.

Egyptian equivalent..."The central and most popular character within ancient Egyptian 'religion' of Asar [Osiris] is Heru [Horus] who is an incarnation of his father Asar. Asar is killed by his brother Set who, out of greed and demonic tendency, craves to be the ruler of Egypt. With the help of Djehuti, the god of wisdom, Aset [Isis], the great mother and Hetheru, his consort - Heru prevails in the battle against Set for the rulership of Egypt. Heru's struggle symbolizes the struggle of every human being to regain rulership of the Higher Self and to subdue the lower self. With this understanding, the land of Egypt, is equivalent to the Kingdom/Queendom concept of Christianity." [Extract from the book by S. Ashby].

Greek equivalent = Cronos. Enlarged elsewhere. Try part 1.

Celt equivalent {of Set}? ''Efnissien the jealous brother, stands in the long tradition of 'disruptive elements at the feast'. Central to the story is the Cauldron of Rebirth..." [Page 38 'Mabon and the Mysteries of Britain']. Try ''cauldron''.

A practical [day to day] example could be [i.e.,'micro']..."To conclude the end of my journey; i assess where i am now? It was a meandering and protracted wrestle to cut the umbilical cord and finally set this book free from the brambles of my brain". [Quote from within the book by Q. S. Lam].

".......the passing through the baptism and entering of the stream." [Quote from within the book by A. Bailey].

Understanding the above gets us closer to a ''mind set''. Closer to understanding such 'unknowns' as: "A great picture could be seen on the hill and a tale had to be made up to account for it. The actual tale has no bearing on the original purpose of the figures, but it does tell us how many were there and give some idea of what they seemed to be doing. This may be the clue to how such stories should be treated. The witches associated with 'springs' will perhaps have been goddesses formerly worshipped there. The 'giant', Hiccafrith, was a visible figure with 'wheel' and club. He is still associated with a particular spot because that is where his rites were enacted. It seems evident that there must have been two giants on Plymouth Hoe, not because it is thought that a new one may have been made, but because Geoffrey of Monmouth tells of 'two contestants' in a wrestling match." [Page 64 'Gogmagog: The Buried Gods' / T. Lethbridge].

rock5A side step: ".........and the meaning of the Greater joy of seeing is when the faithful sees the truth of 'god' with the secret eye of the heart."..."Man is my secret and I am his secret. That secret is a light from the divine light of god. It is the center of the heart, made out of the finest of matter. It is the soul which knows all the secret truths; it is the secret connection between the created one and his Creator. That secret does not love nor lean towards anything other than 'god." [Chapter 17, 'The Secret of Secrets'].

Understanding the 'divine bit' [or 'word'] relative to that framework [i.e.,A -C], gives a ''credibility'' a possible one; to those quotes and paragraphs. Can you see it yet?

The real question however, is why? Why go to all this effort?

Side note: "Laurens van der Post reported that shortly before his death, Jung had a dream. In his dream he saw ''high up on a high place'' a boulder in the full sun.

"The phrase ''the one who meditates'' relates to the soul.

"Clement of Alexandria elucidates the idea that Jesus is the 'son of god' by explaining: 'The Son is the consciousness of the Father.' The 'Father' is the Mystery...the dazzling darkness of UNconscious Consciousness." [From the book by T. Freke and P. Gandy. Emphasis, this readers].

Analogy of same? "He who begets something which is alive must dive down into the primeval depths in which the forces of 'life' dwell. And when he rises to the surface, there is a gleam of madness in his eyes because in those depths death lives cheek by jowl with life." - "It is obvious that Otto was concerned not with a medical definition of what the Greeks called mania and he and Schelling called ''madness,'' but with a kind of visionary attempt to explain a state in which man's vital powers are enhanced to the utmost, in which consciousness and the unconscious merge as in a breakthrough." [From the book by C. Kerenyi]. Recall the Gilgamesh analogy in Part 1.

And/or: ''Since four is a very 'material' and practical number, it rarely occurs in superstitious customs. An exception is the 4 - leaf clover, which is supposed to bring good luck, probably because it is so rare. Following an old German custom {Celtic?}, on EPIPHANY, girls would plant one bulb each in the four corners of the house, and each bulb would be given a man's name, and the one that sprouted first was believed to point to her future husband.'' ['Mystery of Numbers'].

dionysos and panther

Try ''panther'' and/or ''pine cone''

"In certain cult forms, Dionysos { 'youngest' link } is represented as the god who 'arrives'. Otto, who far more than all other students of the subject saw Dionysos as the ''Coming One, the epiphanic god,'' adds that his 'appearance' is far more urgent, far more compelling than that of any other god. Historical reconstruction makes possible a far more concrete statement. Here we shall attempt to define the types and forms of the epiphanies of Dionysos as accurately as possible. The epiphany of a god was known in Greece not only as 'epiphaneia', but also as 'epidemia' - ''arrival in the land'' {'foreigner'?}...The unpredictable emergence of a new experience, on which a new religion could be based or by which an old one could be enriched, is the form to which, if it were reliably transmitted, a historian of religions would have to give priority. In the connection of the mythological religions, however, reliable knowledge of this form is seldom available. Such an experience must rather be assumed to have occurred BEFORE the emergence of the traditional religion and mythology, before they began, and constitute their foundation." [From the book by C. Kerenyi. All emphasis, this readers]. Think about it, in relation to the books written by W. Burkert and M. Eliade. See Part 1.

''Daughters''?

Zeus {island/cave and/or 'foundation'?} in relation to Dionysos.

'Cave' in relation to..."The Dionysos year is the year of the vineyards and wine cellars. Its events take place on the surface {'horizon' link?} of the earth." [Same book]. Therefore S/W - S/E?

Question. One stage further - relative to an 'understanding' ?

Question 2. Understanding of what?

Defining that 'understanding' gives clues as to Alexanders possible final resting place.

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

"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]. Try ''Lily''.

"The truth is that man gets the fruit of his actions from 'above', and the fruits correspond to the nature of his actions." [Part one, 'Play of Consciousness'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"Nicholas Tesla, recently described by a historian of science as ''the ultimate visionary crank,'' was a Serbian Croat who became a naturalized American. There he patented some seven hundred inventions including fluorescent lights and the Tesla coil that generates an alternating current. Like Newtons most important breakthroughs, this last one arose out of his belief in an etheric dimension between the mental and physical planes." ['Chapter 23, 'The Secret History of the World']. Question. What exactly is/ are...''altered states''. Find within.

"Astral plane was an old term for the realm of the visual imagination." [Chapter one, 'Astral Doorways' by J. H. Brennan]. Question 'shadow' or 'anima/s' aspect?

"....Gradually, however, the word became identified with Karma or desire, and so was used for the plane of emotional reaction." [Same book].

Understanding the 'divine bit' [i.e.,what it implies] - relative to the remaining 'framework' - makes sense of the above.

trident

'TRI' = 'triple' analogy. 'DENT' = 'teeth' link. Coincidence or a meaningful one? Something to get ones teeth into?

Remember objectivity. It has a certain logic to it but only when you understand that full framework. It also links in; at least for this reader; with J.Naydlers in depth work. Mentioned elsewhere. Or for a more possible practical example...in order to attempt to understand the same...the ‘dentist’ example given above in relation to Mr Basil Spences ’experience’. Together with Mr Colin Wilsons example of the same, [strangely, again at the dentists. Alien contacts? Or synchronistic link to ''teeth'' symbolism?], In his ’Introduction to the new edition’, [ later part of ] in the book.. ’Beyond the occult’. Together with the most up-to-date example of same. The Chairman of Wigan football club having a "dream" about his club winning the F.A.cup 1-0 [ 2013 ]...Understanding that full framework offers a possible solution. By the way...Wigan won.

Hebrew Shin. Question. Inverted 'M' ? 'Lower' in relation to 'higher' ? As a means to something? TRY ''M''. Question 2. Agree or disagree?

Another possible example...''I asked my nine year old lad to go find some fossils in the grove of the valley. Within a minute he found a fossil next to a lightening struck tree. As i approached i saw a hominoid clavical [he also noted other bones that he had a PHD on]... As i came closer i put my hand on the wall and then two hominoid teeth fell into my hand''. In relation to the Malopa find in 2008 by Lee Berger [and son]. Same man also identified recent finds in nearby location called ''The Rising Star Cave System''[South Africa] -in 2013- eventually called Homo Naedi [star]. N.B. Don't forget those first impressions - follow through with a second then a third, i.e...

"In 1882 an anonymous book named OAHSPE, A Kosman Bible, was published in New York. It was subsequently revealed in a letter to the editor of 'The Banner of Light'; a Boston periodical; that its author was a dentist named Dr. John Ballou Newbrough and that the book had been written, mostly in the dark, through the agency of automatic writing. Newbrough claimed indeed that the book was written not by himself but through 'some other intelligence' using him as a vehicle. His interest in spiritualism was long standing. When he was a boy his father felt obliged to discourage his clairvoyant leanings...Later on Newbrough discovered that when he sat in circles at seances and calmed his mind, his hands would 'fly off into tantrums' producing messages reading in all directions. So it was that he became interested in researching similar 'spiritual' incidents. After examining over 200 cases, he became convinced that such phenomena was 'angelic' in nature and he himself began to 'crave for the light of heaven'. By this he meant that he wished to become the vehicle for something spiritually profound, rather than mere scribblings and doodles." [Taken from the book by Drury and Skinner]. Similar to the experience of the author 'Mind to Mind'? Found elsewhere.

Question. Actual 'individual' or archetype? Question 2. Anima or shadow aspect? Question 3. If so, one of those 'experiences' could be classed as top/down; the other bottom/up relative to a learning curve. Which and why?

A {working?} example: "At one of the following lectures G. returned to the question of consciousness: 'Neither the psychical nor the physical functions of man can be understood,' he said, 'unless the fact has been grasped that they can both work in different states of consciousness. In all there are 'four' states of consciousness possible to man...The two 'higher' states are inaccessible to him, and although he may have flashes of these states, he is unable to understand them and he judges them from the point of view of those states in which it is usual for him to be'." ['In Search of the Miraculous'. Emphasis/italics, this readers]. Try ''four''.

'Waters of the Gap'.

Follow the title of the book to 'see' it in its broader {i.e.,inclusive of those higher two?} 'environment'.

As an example: ''Point of view'' in relation to: "But in a state of self consciousness a man can have flashes of objective consciousness and remember them." Same book.

That link to Plato's 'forms' . Represented [in part] in the night sky within those zodiac signs. Symbolic of those different aspects of the individual. Now only twelve. Using 'twelve' with a purpose in mind. All with a destination in mind - by way of - that ''inner'' one. The 'micro' within the 'macro'. Represented by those 'patterns' in the night sky, within that very large cycle. Known in ancient days as the ''Great year.'' All those different aspects within the 'whole.' Each pattern containing both positive and negative distinctions {'conjunction'?}. The Kabbala uses '72' a direct link [number symbolism] to the modern equivalent of what was known as the ''Great Year'' - The Precession of the Equinoxes - [Use 'box' to understand why]. The ''middle way'' being its main symbolic intention. The ''outer'' by way of that ''inner'' one. Representation of.

"When i began drawing the mandalas - i saw that everything; all the paths i had been following; all the steps i had taken - were leading back to a single point - namely to the mid-point. It became increasingly plain to me that the mandala is the center. It is the exponent of all paths. It is the path to the center, to individuation...I knew that in finding the mandala as an expression of the self, i had attained what was for me, the ultimate. Perhaps someone else knows more, but not me." [C. G. Jung].

137 3Seen from a different perspective: "So for our ancestors the connection to the night sky would have been incredibly intimate. They looked to the skies to understand their place in creation. And the movement of the stars told them one thing - they were at the center of the universe. Up there is Polaris {North/Pole star}. Its almost aligned exactly with the earths spin axis. As the earth rotates everything moves around that one point. So it looks for ALL THE WORLD as IF the earth is the center of the universe....And that is of course what the ancients believed in for thousands of years - and why not - because its obvious - its wrong. To understand the earths real position in the solar system..." ['Wonders of the Solar System: Order out of Chaos' / B. Cox].

137 4To TRULY understand what our ancestors in the past and descendants in the present are attempting to define - firstly within themselves and then to others - 'SEE' something other than the obvious, i.e., as one example 'Solar' in relation to 'lunar' - left eye / right eye in relation to the eyes of Horus in order to 'define' something - that inner {center?} of something.

Now try ''geocentric''.

Question: ''Does something - 'unbelievable' - become any less of a possibility?

And/or: ''As has been said, Ra is not the sun itself, but rather the solar energy {'spirit'?} which, during the course of its daily cycle, animates all the organic {'soul'?} functions of the human body, one after the other, at each hour of the day and night. It is in this way that we are subject to it.''

Try Sirius....

And/or 3:8 to enlarge.

A working example: {One example}: "Caer Arianrhod is the circumpolar stars, to which souls withdraw between incarnations thus she is identified as a goddess of reincarnation. The Mother aspect { 'Hippo'?} of the triple goddess in Wales, her palace was Caer Arianrhod { Aurora Borealis} - or the secret center of each individuals being." [www.thewhitegoddess.co.uk].

Therefore Sirius' related and by implication the 'Dog Star'...….

"But why the Dog/Roebuck/Lapwing? The author goes on to explain by the objective process that the 'Dog' represents  ''Guard the Secret'' /  The Roebuck = ''Hide the Secret'' / The Lapwing = ''Disguise the Secret''. All in relation to deciphering the Battle of the Trees. All in relation to:

REFRESHER: ''My thesis is that the language of poetic myth anciently current in the Mediterranean and Northern Europe was a ' magical' language bound up with popular religious ceremonies in honour of the moon goddess, or muse, some of them dating from the Old Stone Age, and that this remains the language of TRUE poetry....'' [ Foreword to the book 'The White Goddess' / R, Graves].

MIND SET?

''In its entire history EIGHT people have only been made Honorary citizens of the U.S.A.''

And/or: ''Brennius and Belinus are generally acknowledged to be the gods Bran and Beli; and Beli in the Welsh Triads is described as the father of Arianrhod {'Silver Wheel'}, the sister of Gwydion and Amathaon. Amathaon evidently entered the 'Battle of the Trees' as champion of his father Beli, Supreme god of Light." [Page 56 'The White Goddess' / R. Graves].

Try the 'Battle of the Trees' to get closer to a MIND SET beyond: "If the story of Cad Goddeu concerns the capture of the national necropolis on Salisbury Plain from its former holders, this is most likely to have happened during either the first or the second Belgic invasion." [Page 56. Same book].

Something 'hidden'?

REFRESHER: "Sirius is sometimes called the 'Sun behind the sun', indicating that while the star we call the Sun is related to our physical center of Self in our Solar Plexus and the expression of our Selves within the physical earth, Sirius represents a more hidden center." ['Red Tree, White Tree'].

''Westward leading still proceding....?

 

 

That ''duality'' clause again. Male/female: Unconscious/Conscious. Which and why?

Higher or lower aspect of Self?

Anology: ''In today's psychological language we can understand the Sungod as a symbol for the source of consciousness. At the collective level, he is then the creative spirit of the UNconscious that brought about the evolution of human consciousness; at the personal level he is a symbol for a higher ego or the Self.''

A working example: "What the eye is in corporeal things'', says Pico, ''that very thing is the mind in the realm of the spirit.'' So in Leone we find a passage in which the eye is to the microcosm what the sun is to the macrocosm. " [From the chapter entitled 'Speaking in Hieroglyphics'  {Page 311} from the book 'Alexandria' Vol 3. D. Fideler].

Think about all the above {minds 'eye'?} in relation to that universal ''bit''.

silence"Every man has a certain feature in his character which is central. It is like an axle round which all his 'false personality' revolves. Every mans personal work must consist in struggling against this chief fault. This explains why there can be no general rules of work and why all systems that attempt to evolve such rules either lead to nothing or cause harm. How can there be general rules? What is useful for one is harmful for another. One man talks to much; he must learn to keep silent. Another man is silent when he aught to talk and he must learn to talk; and so it is always and in everything." [' In Search of the Miraculous'].

And/or: "The Law of Octaves naturally gave rise to many talks in our group, eventually G. warned us against to much theorizing. 'You must understand and feel this law in yourselves', he said, 'only then will you see it outside yourselves'. This of course is true. But the difficulty was not only in this. Merely a ''technical'' understanding of the law of octaves requires a lot of time. And we returned to it continually, sometimes making unexpected discoveries, sometimes again losing what had seemed to us already established. It is now difficult to convey how at different periods now one and now another idea became the center of gravity in our work, attracted the greatest attention, gave rise to most talks. The idea of the law of octaves became it its way a permanent center of gravity. We returned to it on every occasion, we spoke of it and discussed its various aspects at every meeting until we began gradually to think of everything from the point of view of this idea," ['In Search of the Miraculous'. Emphasis, this readers].

"The 'ordinary man' must make a spiritual start somewhere, sometime. The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Lao-tze observed."

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

From a different perspective, i.e., ritual stuff..."The student of Jungian psychology will by now have recognized that the table {i.e., King Arthur's round table} is what is known as a 'mandala'. The circle {and/or 'round'} appears to be a universal symbol of wholeness. The grail itself is a symbol of the wholeness for which man is ever searching; its quest is a kind of conferring of the benefits of the Blessed Sacrament in Arthurian and Parsifal legend. Rightly perceived, the Grail romances are a kind of poetic accompaniment to the chivalry of old Christendom of which Logres is an archetype."

''Table'' in relation to..."The preliminaries having been performed, the student concentrates upon the Sephirah Tiphareth as subjectively situated in the region of his heart. From this he 'projects' a 'round table' expanding it from a point of light to a diameter of about six inches {in the imagination}. The table is then furnished. It is of indigo colour and there are twelve golden lines radiating from the centre dividing the table into the twelve segments of the zodiac. In the centre of the table, standing in a circle, and covered by a transparent veil, is a golden chalice, symbol of refreshment. At each place at the table is found a small silver chalice engraved with a zodiac sign. The table having been constructed and furnished is then enlarged in the imagination, big enough to sit at. This is the first exercise of visualization. At this early stage, a golden ray is visualized in the mind's eye, striking down from Tiphareth into the chalice. The subject for meditation, or the problem to be solved, is then brooded upon in the confidence that some esoteric illumination will be received. When the exercise is completed, the table is deliberately diminished, withdrawn into the heart, and a deliberate break made. Notebook and pencil are then set to work." [From the book by A. Duncan].

"...Crowley once said that the magician's sole aim was to interpret his own 'magical' record, and after many years, i have come to agree with him." [Extract from the book 'The Magister'].

Remember - before those first impressions dictate something else {especially if you are the 'casual' reader/visitor type} - the common factor between all the above - are ''archetypes'' - regardless of how obtained. But you should by now {unless the 'casual' type} be seeing the relevance and usefulness of the study of the subject as a whole, and not just the parts we are comfortable with. Hence the link to Jung's final sentence...'Perhaps someone knows more, but not me'. Others elsewhere. Try ''mandala'' Part 4.

Side note. The author of 'Galactic Alignment' {enlarged elsewhere} defines those ''centers'' throughout all cultures. - but {if only for this reader} not in its broader view.

daneSomething closer to the 'mark' could be: "With the 4th house we reach one of the most significant, yet generally one of the least understood sections of modern astrological chart...Astrology still draws a great of its symbolism and meanings from a Ptolemaic worldview; thus it still associates the fourth house with the idea that below the surface of the earth there is nothing but solid substance extending forever in depth...A foundation upon which to build on {'houses'}, and from which to 'raise' crops and extract sub-soil wealth. The fourth house has undoubtedly such a meaning; but as we come not only to know with our brains - but also to feel with the whole of our personality {body and psyche} that the earth is a sphere and that we are living on the curved surface of a globe - the fourth house takes on a much deeper meaning. It takes on a global significance, for it represents not only the productive soil, the foundation for the home and earth into which to dig graves - the ''end'' of all things {death/rebirth link} - above all it carries the meaning of the 'center of the globe'...It represents the 'tap-root' of the human organism; that is the point of deepest sustainment and most secure foundation for anything that rises above the ground. It symbolizes the rootedness of all things." [From the book by Dane Rudhyar].

Side note: "Alcyone represents in the sky the Atlantid nymph who became the mother of Hyrieus by Poseidon; but, though now the Light of the Pleiades, its mythological origin was by no means considered the most beautiful. Riccioli wrote the word Alcione and Alcinoe, and some early manuscripts have it Altione.
The early Arabs called it Al Jauz, the Walnut; Al Jauzah or Al Wasat, the Central One; and Al Na'ir, the Bright One; -- all of Al Thurayya. The later Al Achsasi added to this list Thaur al Thurayya, which, literally the Bull of the Pleiades, i.e., the Leading One, probably was a current title in his day...Hipparchos has been supposed to allude to it in his Oxus...the Bright One, and the Brightest One, of the Pleiad. Yet, in the face of these epithets, Ptolemy apparently did not mention it in the Syntaxis; while Baily, in his edition of Hyde's....to the 32d star of Taurus, which is described as stella externa minuta vergiliarum, quae est ad lotus boreale, -- our Atlas.

Continued: ''In India it was the junction star of the nakshatras Krittika and Rohint, and individual Amba, the Mother; while Hewitt says that in earlier Hindu literature it was Arundhati, wedded to Vashishtha, the chief of the Seven Sages, as her sisters were to the six other Rishis of Ursa Major; and that every newly married couple worshiped them on first entering their future home {'threshold'?} before they worshiped the pole-star. He thinks this is a symbol of the prehistoric union of the northern and southern tribes of India {Scorpion king?}.
We often see the assertion that our title is in no way connected with Alkuon, the Halcyon, that "symbolic or mystical bird, early identified with the Kingfisher," the ornithological Alcedo or Ceryle; so that although the myth of of the Halcyon Days, that "element and temperate time, the nurse of the beautiful Halcyon," - When birds of calm sit brooding on the charmed wave - is not yet understood. Some of Thompson's conjectures as to its stellar aspect will be found interesting. He writes that the story originally referred to some astronomical phenomenon, probably in connexion with the Pleiades, of which constellation Alcyone is the principal star. In what appears to have been the most vigorous period of ancient astronomy (not later than 2000 B.C., but continuing long afterwards to influence legend and nomenclature) the sun rose at the vernal equinox, in conjunction with the Pleiad, in the sign Taurus {Northern gate?}: the Pleiad is in many languages associated with bird-names ... and I am inclined to take the bird on the bull's back in coins of Eretria, Dicaea, and Thurii for the associated constellation of the Pleiad {recall what is normally seen on the 'lions' back}. ... Suidas definitely asserts that the Pleiades were called Alkuones. At the winter solstice, in the same ancient epoch, the Pleiad culminated at nightfall in mid-heaven. ... This culmination, between three and four months after the heliacal rising of the Pleiad in Autumn, was, I conjecture, symbolized as the nesting of the Halcyon {Southern gate?}. Owing to the antiquity and corruption of the legend, it is imopssible to hazard more than a conjecture; but that the phenomenon was in some form an astronomic one I have no doubt. Madler located in Alcyone the 'center of the universe',{ or a ''centering'' within? } but his theory has been shown to be fiction. As is the doubtful assumption by Miss Clerke that 'it shines to its sister stars with eighty three times the lustre of Sirius in terrestrial skies, while its intrinsic brilliancy, as compared with that of the sun is a 1000 times greater {therefore symbolic of something? That inner something?}....It culminates on the 31st of December {i.e., the 'eve' of something}..." [Page 403-405 {The Pleiades} 'Star Names and their Meanings'].

Halcyon days pl (plural only): Period of calm during the winter, when storms do not occur. (idiomatic) A period of calm, usually in the past and often nostalgic.

''Halcyon ultimately derives via Latin alcyōn from Greek alkyṓn “kingfisher.” In ancient myths, the halcyon named a bird, usually identified with the kingfisher, that was said to breed around the time of the winter solstice in a nest floating on the sea, and was believed to have the power to charm the winds and waves.''

Analogy: ''The map shows the distance covered by the procession taking Eleanor’s body from the site of her death in the small village of Harby at the very top all the way to London.

The procession left Waltham Abbey on Thursday the 14th of December 1290, headed to the location of the future Waltham Cross, where it turned south towards London.''

A working example: ''The Faiyum {Fayum} is a temperate climate, which is why many pharaoh palaces were built there. Moses is most likely to have been brought up here. You can imagine in your minds eye how the Hebrews came up from the Delta to the Faiyum - up and down towards the south from the north - on a daily basis to build for pharaoh; and Moses would be a part of this.''

Saint Luke is also considered the patron saint of painters because, according to tradition, he had painted images of Mary and of Jesus....Luke the Evangelist, the author of the third gospel account (and the Acts of the Apostles), is symbolized by a winged ox or bull – a figure of sacrifice, service, and strength.''

"The derivation of the word 'money' comes from the Latin verb Moneo, which means to warn, to teach, to admonish....The Latin lexicon states that this is traced directly to the noun Men or Mens which means mind. The Latin lexicon states that Moneta {derived from moneo}, the name of the mother of Moses {goddess of learning or of the fine arts - meaning material or substance used in creative thinking}, was also a surname of Juno Moneta, the temple became known as Moneta or mint....The word 'coin' according to Webster's Dictionary is derived from the Latin Cuneus, which means a wedge, peg or shaft - hence ARROW...."

The solar plexus, or celiac plexus, is the name given to the network of nerves near the stomach. “Celiac” comes from the Greek word for “belly” and “plexus” means “braid” in Latin. ... We call this region the solar plexus because the network (braid) of nerves looks like the rays of the sun.

Analogy of same; but now with different KEYS..."There is a third way, and that is the approach to the center - the center of the spiral. That is, to the mid point of the web of creation. Here may be found a very ancient feminine symbol in the spider who spins and designs and builds the web of manifestation. The symbol is also found in Rosicrucian diagrams. She represents in other symbolic formulations the Three Sisters, the Fates, spinning, weaving and cutting the thread of life. Whoever becomes a 'victim' of the Spider is, when bound and eaten by her, transformed. She is also the sleeping Lady Venus who, if awakened, gives birth to a 'King'. Whoever has found her secret door is translated from questing querent into guardian of her Mysteries. In other words, a change of function, or a transformation, takes place."

Analogy {in the abstract sense of the word}: "If one understands that things produced by causal conditions are inherently empty, without needing to be broken down and annihilated, yet they cannot be immediately identified with the conditional and the Middle Way, even if they are taken to be conditional and the Middle Way, all empty into emptiness. Why? Because all things are themselves empty, having no sense of self....Suppose one takes the statement that all things are empty, conditional, and in the middle as meaning the three are interconnected but each has difference. Taking all three as expressions of emptiness, things have no MASTER and are therefore empty; they are unreal definitions and therefore empty; they have no extremes and are therefore empty....

Analogy of same?: "...Vestiges of the superstructure {i.e.,the surrounding wall that contained the mastaba of the Egyptian 'Serpent King'} - show evidence of 30 niches and 34 projections {sixtyfour?} spread along its periphery. The structure is built on a wide platform on which, placed at regular intervals, were clay bovine heads with real horns. At the rate of 7 to each niche and 4 on the facade,{eleven?} there must have been a total of 346 of them. The bull played a considerable role in the Old Kingdom, and in the Pyramid Texts the king is often called 'bull of the sky'. But because of its horns the bull was also related to the moon. Thus it is tempting to note that the number of bull heads here approximates to that of 12 lunations {354 days} - and, even more closely, to the number 346.6 which Fred Hoyle, in his examination of Stonehenge, relates to the periodical return of eclipses."

''Ancient Egyptian religion at its very core is a solar religion.'' {Colleen Darnell}.

Question. What about the 'Moon'?  Seen/UNseen? ''Afar''?

''Line of sight'' to enlarge {i.e., that ''duality'' clause}.

Side note: ''When a planet is at its greatest elongation, it appears farthest from the Sun as viewed from Earth, so its apparition is also best at that point.''

''A planet in opposition rises when the Sun sets and sets when the Sun rises. Inferior planets can never be in opposition. Greatest elongation is when an inferior planet is as far from the Sun in angle on the sky as it can be.''

Seated on what?

Stone?

And/or: ''The sleeping lady Venus if awakened can give birth to a king.''

Venus rules Taurus.

And/or: ''On June 4, the sun’s second planet reached its greatest elongation, which just means it is as far as it can get from the sun. (So close to the sun, Venus is bound to our star as if by an invisible string, and is always found near sunrise or sunset, never midnight.)

The next few evenings will be a good time to look at Venus with your naked eyes, through binoculars, or through a telescope. The latter option might well blow your mind: Through a telescope’s magnification, Venus won’t look like a round planet, but instead like a half-moon, first quarter phase.

A beginning or end?

Venus is beautiful in its own right, but it is also one of the simplest waypoints to orient yourself in the night sky. To the left of Venus, a few degrees higher on the horizon, you can find another bright star: the planet Mars. The fourth planet is dimmer, but should still be easy to find with its reddish tinge. If you found both of those, congratulations: You are a citizen of the solar system. Then look above them both, to one of the most familiar asterisms in the night sky: The Big Dipper, or part of the constellation Ursa Major. Its “scoop” will be pointing away from Mars and Venus.

These objects, including the stars of Ursa Major, are very bright and should be visible from almost anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere. When you first step outside, their light may seem feeble at first, especially in or near urban areas. But sit out in the darkness for a while, and your pupils will dilate enough to see more and more.''

''El Kab (or better Elkab) is an Upper Egyptian site on the east bank of the Nile at the mouth of the Wadi Hillal about 80 kilometres (50 mi) south of Luxor (ancient Thebes). El Kab was called Nekheb in the Egyptian language (Coptic: ⲛ̀ⲭⲁⲃ Enkhab), a name that refers to Nekhbet, the goddess depicted as a white vulture.[1] In Greek it was called Eileithyias polis, "city of the goddess Eileithyia {i.e., birth of the divine child}. ....El-Kab is in Upper Egypt, located on the east side of the Nile River, almost to the opposite of Hierakonpolis (on the other side of the river) and about fifty miles above Thebes. With the way the river meandered and eroded the rocks and sand, the Nile River is almost level with the town, but according to Somers Clarke in his journal article “El-Kab and the Great Wall,” “in its early youth the town must have stood well above the flood waters.”[5] The site could be described as a bay between sandstone cliffs to the north and south, and this same sandstone was used to build the temples found in this site.''

Working example: ''The temple of Nekhbet-Hathor at Elkab - started by Thutmose IV and finished by his son Amenhotep III - {'eighteen' Dyn} or perhaps built at the beginning of the reign of Amenhotep III as there are  scenes of him honouring his father...On the east side of the Nile...Old graffiti of one form or another {'tattoo'?}, in the form of votive inscriptions, and possible pilgrim texts from antiquity.

6th sense?

Something extra: "....archetypal forces are perceptible. Essential wisdom teachings are available to those who have the correct keys; it is the realm of quest and achievement, of challenge and encounter, of initiation and enlightenment. It is not illusory, a figment of the imagination or an anthropological invention. It is not 'heaven', hell or analogous to any drug induced vision. The 'Otherworld' is the mythological reality or symbolic continuum within which we can encounter the archetypal energies of the 'gods' and their acts. The Otherworld has its own valid reality which is not accessible to the 'five' senses, though it is appreciable by the 'sixth' {11th hour?}. It is often spoken of as a state of consciousness, though this is itself an unclear definition, implying a merely psychological foundation for its existence. The Otherworld {'domain'?} exists in its own right, is consistent to its own rules and as a visitable reality is not merely confined to the 'psychic' people."

And/or: Norwich {'canaries' / ''The Yellows''} = ''The town that WOOL built''. ['Britains Most Historic Towns: Tudor Norwich' / A. Roberts].

Any 'gaps'?

A work in progress: ''Khufu is well pleased and then says how he has heard that Djedi knows the number of shrines in the enclosure of Thoth, but Djedi claims he does not, he only knows where they are kept. When Khufu asks him to bring them, he says he cannot because it is written that only the eldest son of Reddedet will be able to bring them. When Khufu asks who Reddedet is, he is told that she will bear three sons who will hold high office in the land and replace Khufu's line. Khufu is upset to hear that his own sons will not inherit the throne but is assured that they will rule and, only after one of his sons (Khafre) and then his son (Menkaure), will the son of Reddedet come to the throne. Unlike the earlier tales, this one does not end with the set piece of the king commanding sacrifices but rather with him setting Djedi up with an allowance and a place to live with Hardedef. The story prepares a reader for the last of the five in which the sons of Reddedet will be born.

Khufu and the Magician is often cited by scholars (such as Barbara Watterson) as depicting the king as callous and insensitive. It has also been claimed that the Westcar Papyrus may have influenced the later view (famously expressed by Herodotus) that Khufu was a cruel monarch and despised by the people.....The last story has no narrator and is given in the third person. It tells the tale of the magical birth of the first three kings of the 5th Dynasty: Userkaf, Sahure, and Kakai. Reddedet, wife of a priest of Ra, goes into a difficult labor, and the god Ra, hearing it, sends Isis, Nephthys, Meskhenet, Heket, and Khnum to help her....'' ['World History Encyclopedia'].

"The basalt sarcophagus of King Menkaura or Merkerinos found in the burial chamber of his pyramid at Giza, was destined to sink in 1938 near the Spanish coast with the ship carrying it to England. Thus there remains only the descriptions and drawings of it made at the time of its discovery. These, however, are of considerable value, since this sarcophagus was a scaled down model of the brick mastabas of the First Dynasty, and thus makes possible a mental reconstruction of the general outlines of these tombs, of which nothing remains but the lower portions. The facades of these UNfired brick buildings were composed of broad vertical piers alternating with recesses {niches?} at the back of which narrow, recessed panels simulate the doors through which the deceased's Ka {the permanent part of the being} might come and go at its pleasure. Above each 'false door' is a simulacrum of a lintel {key stone?} under which a roller is often found, intended for the rolled up mat or blind. Each vertical pier is normally composed of four pilasters separated by three niches, {7?} as in the stone sarcophagus. This motif of stepped recesses caused the four facades of these ancient tombs to be animated with light and shadow...The theme of the facade with stepped recesses plays a very important role during the whole of Pharaonic history. We find it once more imitated in stone in the form of the 'false door stele' for the passage of the Ka, before which offerings were made in the Old Kingdom mortuary chapels. It is painted on the coffins of the Middle Kingdom. It is used as a foundation for the King's 'Horus name' during the entire historical period. The oldest known example - found on the stele of the Serpent King, King Djt of the 1st Dynasty.'' [Lucie Lamy].

''Three and four''?

Side note: A wooden coffin found in Menkaure's pyramid. Put there many centuries after the original burial. Speculation as to why {Mark Lehner}. What it does prove is that for what ever reasons persons of authority or ''persons in the know'' - will if a need arises - change things  around.

Question. What else has been ''changed around''?

'Possessions' of Tutankhamun?

Lower listening to higher Self?

From a different perspective: ''Follow the way of constant self-enquiry and you will make thinking serve you as a means to freedom, and the very questions you ask yourself will be the stepping stones to the questionless state of the Overself. You will better understand the rationale of the threefold practice - mental quite, placid breathing and self observation - by studying the following picture of man's relation to his Overself. We may say that the person exists by virtue of, through the life force of, and by permission of the Overself......We may picture the personal self {as opposed the Overself} - as sitting in mans body and constantly engaged in viewing the world around through the doorway of the FIVE-physical sense organs.....It has entirely forgotten its place of birth, which is the Overself. Thus it has fallen into the ironical position of being which has not only lost all memory of its 'Father', but actually denies all possibility of the very existence of that father. THAT out of which thought arise is the true being of man, the true Self.'' [Pages 110/111 'The Secret Path' / P. Brunton].

First male or 'female'?

And/or: ''According to ancient and Neoplatonic systems, 6 is the most purrfect number as it is both the sum and the product of its parts: it is formed either by adding 1+2+3 or by multiplying same numbers. Furthermore it is the product of the first male {2} and the first female {3} numbers. From the psychologists viewpoint, it represents a combination of analysis and synthesis in its simplest form: 2x3. It summarizes all the plane figures of geometry {point, line and triangle}, and since the cube is composed of 6 squares, it is the ideal form for any closed construction. Biblical exegetes were delighted to discover these mathematical qualities, for they knew that god had completed his work of creation in 'six' days....Six is not purrfect because god had 'created' the world in 6 days; rather, god has purrfected the world  in 6 days because the number was perfect." [ From the chapter : The Perfect Number of the Created World / 'The Mystery of Numbers' / Annemarie Schimmel].

Continued: "The occultist who uses elaborate diagrams of astral planes and etheric bodies liberally sprinkled with Sanskrit words can be as far from Gnosis as can the psychologist who employs clever two-dimensional maps of the psyche with short hand expressions such as the ''shadow,'' the ''anima,'' or the ''wise old man,'' as though these were concrete realities instead of symbolic pointers to incomprehensible mysteries in the vast recesses of the unconscious."  [Page 36 'The Gnostic Jung' / S. Hoeller].

Menkaure with a goaty in a 'pyr'amid shape. 'Flat' top?

Working example {i.e., especially in relation to ''basalt''.

As  a young man my goal had been to accomplish something in my science. But then, I hit upon this steam of lava, and the heat of its fires reshaped my life...." [Page 225 'Memories, Dreams and Reflections' / C. G. Jung].

Question. If the 'offset' pyramid = Basalt. OR more importantly what ''basalt'' represents. What about the other two. One step back - two forward? Which implies a direction.Or more importantly - a mind set.

continued..."In the oldest inscribed tomb discovered, going back to the time of Djoser, a long corridor is found whose smooth east wall is covered with paintings {unrolled?}. The west wall is the exact copy of a stepped facade from the 1st Dynasty, with the difference, that at the back of the eleven niches contained between the twelve pilasters there are eleven wood panels admirably sculpted with the titles and representations of the tombs owner, Hesy. The pilasters represent in paint the wooden piers held together by dowelled crossbeams {'tongue/groove': Stonehenge?} on which brightly coloured tapestries were hung. The geometric motifs of these tapestries evoke a particular technique: 'tissage aux cartons'. On the facade of the First Dynasty tomb of King Kaa {Aha?} {i.e.,last king of 1st Dynasty} are vestiges of paintings identical to those in the tomb of Hesy...

These numerous divinities {polytheism?} are, it is written, the very 'limbs' of god, {i.e.,as one example the multiple 'limbs' of Shiva?}, his attributes or hypostases {'raised arms'?}. Thus by virtue of the 'divine spark' which enlivens him during his existence, the human being participates at every moment in the process of becoming conscious...Of the images chosen from natural phenomena to serve as symbols for these abstract notions, one of the most typical is the daily disappearance of the sun and its rebirth in the morning {Book of Aker link -therefore 'horizontal' link?} Now the sun is one of the two Eyes of the 'supreme being', and the recovery of this Eye represents, for man, the victory over all negative powers and the enrichment of his own consciousness {Maat}, the ultimate goal of existence..." ['Ancient Egyptian Mysteries' / Lucie Lamy].

'Higher' or 'lower' ?

Master or servant.

Side note {Analogy; in relation to ''rolled/UNrolled''}: "Some I's of course, are stronger than others. But it is there own conscious strength; they have been created by the strength of accidents or mechanical external stimuli. Education, imitation, reading, the hypnotism of religion, caste and traditions, or the glamour of new slogans, create very strong I's in mans personality, which dominate whole series of other, weaker, I's. But their strength is the strength of the 'roll's' in the centers. And all I's making up mans personality have the same origin as these 'roll's' ; they are the result of these external influences; and both are set in motion and controlled by fresh external influences. Man has no individuality. He has no single big I. Man is divided into a multiplicity of small I's...This explains why people so often make decisions and so seldom carry them out...Thus in one teaching, man is compared to a 'house' {'Temple'?} in which there is a multitude of servants but no master and no steward {'squire'?}. The 'servants' have all forgotten their duties; no one wants to do what he aught; everyone tries to be 'master'...The comparison of a man to a house awaiting the arrival of the master is frequently used in Eastern teachings which have preserved traces of ancient knowledge, and, as we know, the subject appears in various forms in the Gospels."

Weak 'legs' / Strong legs?

A stone inscribed with_the name_of Senenmut from Thebes Egypt. Question. ''Set in Stone'' therefore...? {Help section to enlarge}. Sarcophagus shape with closed lid? Where would it be opened?

 

A working example: ''Senenmut first enters the historical record on a national level as the "Steward of the God's Wife" (Hatshepsut) and "Steward of the King's Daughter" (Neferure). Some Egyptologists place Senenmut's entry into royal service during the reign of Thutmose I, but it is far more likely that it occurred during either the reign of Thutmose II or while Hatshepsut was still regent and not pharaoh. After Hatshepsut was crowned pharaoh, Senenmut was given more prestigious titles and became high steward of the king.''

Astro ceiling in Senenmut bare tomb chamber. 'Folded / UNfolded'? Naked/Clothed?

And/or: ''Cleopatra may be the most famous woman of ancient Egypt, but far more significant was Hatshepsut, a female pharaoh who reigned for nearly twenty years in the 15 century B.C, during the early period of the New Kingdom....The book investigates the circumstances that allowed her to become king; her relationship with her young-NEPHEW -stepson Thutmose III and particularly Senenmut, Hatshepsut's architect and STEWARD...''

continued..."The King is the 'son of Re'. As king of the north and south, master of the two crowns {Horus - Seth} - he is felt to have mastery over antagonistic natural forces, and be capable of assuring cosmic order. The royal tombs are of an 'anthropocosmic' character. At Thebes, for example the burial chambers {of some} are painted as though a huge papyrus were UNrolled around the walls on which is inscribed the Book of What is in the Dwat. This 'book' tells the nightly journey of Re - through the regions of the twelve hours of the night, each of which has a 'gate' 'guardians' and 'pilots'...Hour after hour, phase after phase, whether imagined by the scarab's gestation or by the human metabolism, the metamorphosis of the densest matter, into the most volatile and subtle energy is accomplished - the return, now conscious - to the origin. [All above extracts from the book 'Egyptian Mysteries'. Emphasis - this readers].

ALL as a MEANS to an understanding - from the dawn of human kind. Question. Conspiracy obsessives?

Side note: "The occultist who uses elaborate diagrams of astral planes and etheric bodies liberally sprinkled with Sanskrit words can be as far from Gnosis as can the psychologist who employs clever two-dimensional maps of the psyche with short hand expressions such as the ''shadow,'' the ''anima,'' or the ''wise old man,'' as though these were concrete realities instead of symbolic pointers to incomprehensible mysteries in the vast recesses of the unconscious." [Page 36 'The Gnostic Jung' / S. Hoeller].

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

In answer to that question, you could say: maybe these authors who do write about this subject material are obsessive - if only in the sense of their own point of view - after all nothing 'concrete' has yet been proven by it. At the end of the day {or night} - it seems nothing more than opinions - personal ones? It seems nothing more than ''abstract'' stuff - passed around - and regurgitated {'jackal' / 'vulture' or both?} each generation by different authors.

So the {inner?} question to that answer could be - who are these authors who constantly spend the time and effort to write about it ,i.e.,what type of persons are they? Do they all belong to a certain 'family' or tribe or profession or religion or church or monastery or club or... etc, etc,. In other words using the above {as one example only} - who is Lucie Lamy?

Alongside other evidence of the social and religious organisation of the period, the names of the 1st Dynasty kings were enshrined in a medical treatise and in two of the formulae of the Book of Coming Forth into Day, of which this is one: 'This formula has been found in the foundations by a chief mason {Hiram Abiff link?} in the time of his Majesty of Upper and Lower Egypt, Semti the Justified. It was a secret guide which had never been seen nor glimpsed.

A change of pace...The author of the 'Source Field Investigations,' [chapters 6 and 19] attempts to understand the same {i.e.,''esotericism'' in general} within his own field of interest, but because this subject has not been added to the 'equation' a full understanding cannot be the result. As proven by the authors understanding within the books, Zoroastrianism chapter. His main references, being from a book that only explain it in its historical context. Exoteric equivalent, {similar to the authors of the 'Master Game'. Explained elsewhere}. External as opposed to that inner one. Hence the reason he concludes - that their ancient home must have been in the Arctic, ''because of the weather patterns mentioned in the Vedas.'' 'Arctic conditions,' within this subject is indicative of a learning process [potential of, i.e.,once learnt]. Cold in relation to warm. 'Lower' in relation to 'higher.' South in relation to North. {or vice versa, depending on the 'intention' of author}. Atlantic {Nova Scotia link} - relative to the Mediterranean. Boundaries that have to be 'investigated' for an understanding to take place.

'The World Turned Inside Out: Henry Corbin and Islamic Mysticism' by T. Cheetham.

Analogy: ''The Myth of Horus narrated on the second register of the inner walls of the Edfu Temple for example, features an epic victory of good versus evil in the killing scene where Horus the Son of Isis impales Seth in the form of a red Hippopotamus (Fairman, 1935: p. 27). The concept of such an encounter can be traced back to pre-historic Hierakonpolis, where the figurines of a falcon and a hippopotamus were found buried together inside a post-hole as a foundation deposit in the southeast corner of a pillared hall (structure 7) in the elite cemetery HK-6 (Droux & Fried-man, 2007: pp. 7-9). This structures dates to the mid-4th Millennium B.C.E. The southeast corner hints that the two contenders were imagined dwelling in that area of the horizon where Sirius, Venus, and  Mercury at times hover.''

"That these examples of canine cosmic tricksters, manifesting in the sky's as planet killers such as comets and asteroids, come from Europe and not Anatolia need not concern us, for similar cosmological themes exist in the sky lore much closer to Gobekli -tepe. The Bundahishn, a sacred text of Zoroastrianism, a 'religious' doctrine that once thrived in Iran, India, and Armenia, contains its own graphic account of a Ragnarok-style scenario, which includes the following somewhat enigmatic lines: 'As Gokihar falls in the celestial sphere from a moon-beam on to earth, the distress of the earth becomes such like as that of a sheep when a wolf falls upon it'. Gokihar is generally translated as 'meteor', that is, an incoming comet fragment, asteroid, or bolide of some sort, while the name itself has been interpreted as meaning 'wolf progeny'. The double allusion in this statement to the wolf is significant, and one can envisage, and even feel, the force of the assumed impact, here likened to the manner that a sheep's legs bend and collapse when pounced on by a wolf. That Gokihar's appearance heralds some kind of apocalyptic event seems confirmed in the verse that follows: 'Afterward, the fire and halo melt the metal of {the archangel} Shatvair, in the hills and mountains, and it {the molten metal} remains on this earth like a river.' If the impact of a comet fragment or asteroid is implied, then the presence afterward of firestorms and rivers of molten 'metal' caused by the eruption of volcanoes would be inevitable." [From the book by A. Collins. Emphasis, this readers]. Try ''metal/mettle'' and/or ''wolf'' to 'see' subject material in its broader 'form'.

Sighting of a Supernova? Or is that information used to define something else? Question. Where would the 'horned' moon fit into that equation?

Side note: Comet or supernova {nova?} as the most likely {prediction; therefore ''Oracle'' link} - that forewarns - the further development of something. That inner one. Recall the information of ''Antares'' - the 'heart' of the Scorpion. That link to the foundation of something.

'Saturn and the Theoretical Foundation of an Emerging Discipline'. Enlarged throughout.

Continued: As it is with the Mona Lisa painting. Those icy topped peaks that represent something of that 'inner' journey. Explained elsewhere. The word 'Atlantis' also mentioned, {next page of same book, i.e.,by D. Wilcock} as are the words ''apocalyptic quality'' in relation to ''Zoroastrians concepts about the end of the age,'' {next page on}. Both only understood in that 'external' sense. The word 'Atlantis' indicative of water and copper,{red ochre link. Symbolic of}. That link to the Great Pyramid, i.e.,"Strangely, the Great Pyramid is also located at the exact center of the earths land mass, the one true axis mundi. Its East - West axis sits precisely on the longest land parallel, covering the greatest amount of land and the least amount of water on earth.....'' [Chapter seven, D. Wilcock book].

'Flag' of Ethiopia . Within the 'Horn' of Africa. Supernova?

'Red' indicative of the shadow/negative aspect, [explained within], of which the 'smallest' of the three pyramids has more of it 'externally' than the other two. The two 'others' more limestone than red granite. Limestone; being 'lighter', both in structure and texture: used as a representation of that 'internal awareness'; as most know within this subject. Positive relative to negative. Known in relation to unknown. Which again if correct, gives a possible indication as the order of each 'build'.

Atlantis story indicative of same. But now in relation to what 'water' represents, within this subject. Both salt and fresh. Explained elsewhere. As is the meaning of the word ''apocalyptic,'' if only in relation to this subject.

Atlantic/Pacific {''duality''}?

Understanding this subject {as a 'whole'} gives an answer to the true ''mindset of the peoples'' - beyond a comet explosion...

Question. If East to West represents a ''land mass.'' Where on that same map would be a representation of a ''water mass?''

Continued: "Most likely a disintegrating comet was the culprit, although we cannot discount other possibilities, such as an asteroid or meteor impact, or a close supernova event. What IS important, however, is its impact on the mind set of the peoples existing in the Euphrates Basin at the termination of the Paleolithic age, for there is compelling evidence that a memory of this devastating cataclysm lingered on in the minds of the Gobekli tepe builders themselves." [From the book by A. Collins].

Something did indeed linger on in those minds - and still does - that universal one.
