asteriaQuestion. What {where?}is the feminine aspect represented at Gobekli tepe....

Refresher: "How can we embody and integrate all the lessons learned into the very fabric of our being so that we do not have to fear individually or collectively the Great Turning at Hand. Feminine consciousness and wisdom remember {''belly'' link} the cycles of life and energy, that things ebb and flow in a recurrent process. Masculine consciousness and wisdom remind us of the necessity for demarcation and exploration of ever new and evolving realities; they remind us that tradition, LAW, order, and systems provide the vital containment of psychic life. The 'hieros gamos' of our time is this marriage of masculine and feminine...." Continued elsewhere.

Question 2. Any water sources at the base; or near; to that same ''Potbelly hill''?

A work in progress: ''Born around 185-187 BC., the only daughter of Ptolemy V and Cleopatra I, Cleopatra II makes her first notable appearance in the sources in March 175 BC., when she married her eldest brother Ptolemy VI {who was about eleven at the time}. Cleopatra II ascended the throne with Ptolemy VI as his co--ruler. In temple scenes the new queen is seen always standing behind her husband, but embodying between them the important ancient Egyptian concept of DUALITY. On the great pylon at Philae, the royal couple are shown offering wine, perfume and flowers to Isis, Horus, Hathor, Harpocrates, and Meret.....

Side note: ''Meret was a token wife occasionally given to Hapy, the god of the Nile flood. Her name being a reference to this, meaning simply the beloved. As token wife, she was usually depicted with the same associations as Hapy, having on her head either the blue lotus for Upper Egypt, or the papyrus plant for Lower Egypt. Since Hapy was the source of bountifulness, Meret was usually depicted with an offering bowl, as she was seen, being his wife, as the symbolic recipient of his generosity. Among the lower classes, where nationalism was less important than successful harvest, she was more strongly considered the wife of Hapy than the protectresses of Lower and Upper Egypt, which were more normally his wife in the upper classes. As a deity whose role was to be the symbolic receiver of bounty from the inundation of the Nile, she was strongly associated with rejoicing, such as singing and dancing.[1] Later stories tell that Meret was the goddess of the eighth hour, in the Book of Gates.''

Continued: ''In reality, due to the youth and inexperience of BOTH - the real power of the throne lay behind two ineffectual 'guardians': Eulaeus and Lenaeus. Despite a total lack of military experience, these two Greek courtiers quickly set Egypt on a collision course with king Antiochus IV Epiphanes, who had just ascended the Seleucid throne.

Fire and water. Which and why?

Both inaugurated a new form of rulership within the royal family when, in November 170 BC, they established a triumvirate of co-rulers: Ptolemy VI, Cleopatra II, and their youngest sibling 'Ptolemy the brother' as he was known at the time, although he was later called 'POTBELLY' because of his enormous size. The reasons for this 'triumvirate of siblings' to be placed on the throne remain unknown. It certainly had no pharaonic or Hellenistic  precedent....Unfortunately, when Potbelly was prematurely elevated to the joint throne - a monster was born....The era of the triple co-rule ushered in the dawn of female supremacy - an age of 'girl power', which was to last until the sunset of the dynasty.''

Fake news or just the hair piece?

Side note: "We knew little about the Venus of the Aztecs and Mayans, and access to knowledge was restricted. We learned that the Peruvian name for Venus was Chasca, meaning 'curling hair'. The word suggests that the rays of the female star are visualized as locks of hair. Could our wings or flames be hair, reminders of the Greek imagery which gave us the word 'comet'? ['The Zelator']. Recall what ''hair'' and ''Venus'' represents within subject material.

And/or: "Why,’ I asked, ‘is the eclipse such a deep experience? What is this sense of sadness one feels? It is a far deeper experience than one would expect of the temporary shutting off of the light. I have not seen many eclipses, yet I know that it is an experience . . . rather, as they say, “as though someone were walking over my grave”. What is this experience?’ Mark had smiled at my outworn image, and, when I had finished the question, nodded: “This feeling of death is there because the symbolism of the eclipse reaches into the very fundament of the human soul. There is a sort of presage of death, but not in the way one might immediately imagine. You'll remember, from your readings of the hermetic literature, that there’s mention of ishon, the small man?” ‘I seem to have gone a long way from your question — yet this is not the case....

Side note: "As I remember,’ said Christobel, ‘there was an eclipse {lunar?} at the Crucifixion. Well, darkness flowed over the face of the earth because the Sun had gone out — or at least something had happened. At any event, artists have always shown an interest in the symbolism behind the meeting of Sun and Moon — especially when painting the Crucifixion. In this panel, the Light returns in the higher body of Christ. The zodiac-Sun pours light into the crucified Christ, that, through Him, the Light may be made available to humanity. You can link this with the symbolism of Aries and Pisces, which we saw in the Salome panel. Here, light pours into the head of Christ, and the two men touch the feet of Christ with their own feet. Once again, it is an allegory of Aries and Pisces. In strictly Christian terms, it is a commentary on the first verses of the Gospel of St John."

Shepherd Kings?

And/or: Because Earth rotates on its axis from west to east, the Moon and the Sun (and all other celestial objects) appear to move from east to west across the sky. Viewed from above, however, the Moon orbits Earth in the same direction as our planet rotates. So, the Moon actually moves from west to east through our sky, albeit so slowly that we almost never notice it. During a total solar eclipse, however, we can see the Moon’s true motion as it crosses the Sun’s face from west to east. As this occurs, the Moon’s shadow follows it — moving in the same direction — and tracks a path across Earth’s surface.

NASA has created a helpful video, “Flying Around the Eclipse Shadow,” which illustrates this geometry if you’re still having trouble picturing it. You can watch it online at

Red or orange?


Above or below the clouds?

The saying "Red sky in the morning, sailor's warning" suggests that a red sunrise can indicate that a high pressure system has already passed, and a storm system may be moving in12The idea is that weather patterns usually move from west to east, so if there are red skies in the morning, clouds may be drifting in from the west, potentially signalling an approaching storm3However, it's important to note that this is not always accurate, as most tropical storms and hurricanes in the Atlantic move east to west....

“A red sky at night is a shepherd’s delight! A red sky in the morning is a shepherd’s warning.”


The tomb of Hirjuf is located at Qubbet el-Hawa, also known as the Valley of the Princes, a rocky location across Aswan. There are tombs from the Middle and New Empires as well as the Old Empire, which offer valuable insights into the lives of prominent officials.
The Dome of the Wind is a rocky mountain with a height of about 130 m. It is located on the west bank of the Nile near Aswan. The reason for the popularity of this mountain is that it contains tombs of priests, nobles, and governors of Aswan throughout the different ages, such as: The era of the Old Kingdom (Sixth Dynasty).
The Middle Kingdom (for the Twelfth Dynasty).
They also recently discovered tombs belonging to the modern state and the late era. The reason for naming the air dome by this name There is a tomb on the southern summit of the mountain belonging to one of the righteous saints and he is called “Sidi Ali Abu Al-Hawa”. It is a different and distinctive tomb, as its dome is painted white, and it is prominent so that you can see it from afar. The tomb is also distinguished by the fact that it was built on the ruins of a Coptic monastery (St. George). Tomb of Sidi Ali Abu Al-Hawa.

And/or: "According to a medieval legend, the remains of the apostle James, son of Zebedee were brought to Galicia for burial, where they were lost. Eight hundred years later the light of a bright star guided a shepherd, Pelagius the Hermit, who was watching his flock at night to the burial site in Santiago de Compostela.[5] This site was originally called Mount Libredon [gl] and its physical topography leads prevalent sea borne winds to clear the cloud deck immediately overhead.[6] The shepherd quickly reported his discovery to the bishop of Iria, Theodemir.[5] The bishop declared that the remains were those of the apostle James and immediately notified King Alfonso II in Oviedo.[5] To honour St. James, the cathedral was built on the spot where his remains were said to have been found. The legend, which included numerous miraculous events, enabled the Catholic faithful to bolster support for their stronghold in northern Spain during the Christian crusades against the Moors, but also led to the growth and development of the city."

Continued: "The Gospel of Matthew, Chapter twentyseven, mentions that an earthquake coincided with the crucifixion: “And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open.” "Gabriel the archangel of the Moon. The Moon is above the left hand of Christ, while the Sun is above His right hand. The boat-like Moon is a symbol of the Waters, while the Sun is a symbol of Fire. These are the two opposite forces in the cosmos: in the mediaeval view of things, Fire rises, while Water descends. Yet the Christian mystery depends on the “miracle” by which Fire descends. See how a part of the Sun’s light — in the form of a wing — breaks away, and pours into the crown of Christ. This shows that Christ, although crucified and dead, is still alive. He is alive in the Quintessence."

Side note: In what was to be an eventful night in the Garden of Gethsemane, a prayerful Jesus, in great agony, was speaking to His disciples when He was confronted by a multitude with swords and torches. They had come from the chief priest to arrest Him. Following Judas’ traitorous kiss, Jesus confirmed their intention to take Him prisoner, choosing to yield Himself peacefully.

Divided into 32. Ear shape?

However, Peter was not willing to let his Master be hauled off without a fight. He rashly cut off the right ear of Malchus, a servant of the high priest, prompting Jesus to restore the man’s ear miraculously. This merciful act would be His last miracle before being crucified (Matthew 26:47-56Mark 14:43-50Luke 22:47-53John 18:1-12).

Healing the ear of a servant {'slave'?} is the final of the miracles of Jesus in the Gospels.[1] Even though the incident of the servant's ear being cut off is recorded in all four gospelsMatthew 26:51Mark 14:47Luke 22:51; and John 18:10–11; the servant and the disciple are named as Malchus and Simon Peter only in John. Only Luke records that Jesus healed the servant.

The Gospel of Luke (22:49-51) describes Jesus healing the servant of a high priest during the Arrest of Jesus after one of the followers of Jesus had cut his right ear off:

Grip of advantage.

When Jesus' followers saw what was going to happen, they said, "Lord, should we strike with our swords?" And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear. But Jesus answered, "No more of this!" And he touched the man's ear and healed him.[2]

This healing episode follows the kiss of Judas and is the last miracle reported in the Canonical Gospels prior to the Crucifixion of Jesus.

No wonder, then, that the Lord admonished Peter: “Put up thy sword into the sheath” (John 18:11). Scripture else­where codifies the lesson as follows: “Be not overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good” (Rom. 12:21). This is not the time for fighting. “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God” (2 Cor. 10:4). More importantly, you can’t share the work with the Mediator.

And/or: "David said to him, “Let me have the site of your threshing floor so I can build an altar to the Lord, that the plague on the people may be stopped. Sell it to me at the full price.23 Araunah said to David, “Take it! Let my lord the king do whatever pleases him. Look, I will give the oxen for the burnt offerings, the threshing sledges for the wood, and the wheat for the grain offering. I will give all this. 24 But King David replied to Araunah, “No, I insist on paying the full price. I will not take for the Lord what is yours, or sacrifice a burnt offering that costs me nothing.”

Six runs.

So David paid Araunah SIX hundred shekels[a] of gold for the site. 26 David built an altar to the Lord there and sacrificed burnt offerings and fellowship offerings. He called on the Lord, and the Lord answered him with fire from heaven on the altar of burnt offering.

27 Then the Lord spoke to the angel, and he put his sword back into its sheath. 28 At that time, when David saw that the Lord had answered him on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite, he offered sacrifices there. 29 The tabernacle of the Lord, which Moses had made in the wilderness, and the altar of burnt offering were at that time on the high place at Gibeon. 30 But David could not go before it to inquire of God, because he was afraid of the sword of the angel of the Lord." [1 Chronicles 21:18-30].

And/or: The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, set your face against Jerusalem and preach against the sanctuary. Prophesy against the land of Israel and say to her: ‘This is what the Lord says: I am against you. I will draw my sword from its sheath and cut off from you both the righteous and the wicked. Because I am going to cut off the righteous and the wicked, my sword will be unsheathed against everyone from south to north. Then all people will know that I the Lord have drawn my sword from its sheath; it will not return again.’

“Therefore groan, son of man! Groan before them with broken heart and bitter grief. And when they ask you, ‘Why are you groaning?’ you shall say, ‘Because of the news that is coming. Every heart will melt with fear and every hand go limp; every spirit will become faint and every leg will be wet with urine.’ It is coming! It will surely take place, declares the Sovereign Lord.” [Ezekiel 21:2-8].

Side note: "The sixth principle implies form. Properly, it is the vehicular side of consciousness. Its nature is substantive. One characteristic of occult philosophy is the theorem that every state of consciousness has its own particular type of matter. We have the idea in all magical philosophy of a so-called mental body or sheath, of a mind clothed with a fluidic body of thought, grounded in a substance of extreme tenuity and subtlety. Referred to the planet Mercury (not to the alchemical principle also of that name) which implies intelligence and consciousness of a kind, its elemental attribution is Water. This latter brings out the correspondence of a fluidic plastic substance forming the etheric or astral body of the mind. The appropriate alchemical principle is Salt, the last of the triad, conceived of as an inert, heavy mineral body. Just as the alchemical Mercury refers to Consciousness, and Sulphur to emotion and feeling, so this principle of Salt refers more particularly to the sheath or vehicle in which these faculties are grounded.....

The Vine yields wine for man’s pleasure. But it does so only through the application of an intelligence and a skill external to itself. Itself unaided, it remains but a vine. So by the alchemical artifice of putrefaction and distillation, the crude material of the astro-mental sheath is purified, becoming, so to speak, the wine or spirit thereof. Noteworthy also, is the fact that the Vine and wine generally are sacred in mythology to Bacchus. On the Qabalistic Tree of Life he is referred to Tipharas, the solar centre, the source of reference of all the dying Gods who teach immortality, resurrection, and healing. The glorified and purified consciousness which is the Philosopher’s Stone is likewise a Tipharas attribution - and often is termed the Augoeides, the deathless solar body, the wedding garment of scripture. Thus the Stone is immortality, it is consciousness resurrected from death, gifted with divine healing." ['The Philosophers Stone' / Israel Regardie].

Norfolk: Spear points?

A Working example: An Anglo-Saxon burial ground with 138 graves found along the route of HS2 is one of the largest ever uncovered in the UK, experts have said. A skeleton with a weapon embedded in it, jewellery and weapons were among the finds in Wendover, Buckinghamshire. Evidence of Neolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age and Roman activity was also found. Archaeologist Rachel Wood said the site's significance for the "historical and archaeological understanding" of Anglo-Saxon Britain was "huge".

The site contained 141 regular burials and five cremation burials. The male skeleton was found with a sharp iron object embedded into its spine, which experts believe may have caused or factored into his death. Other items unearthed in the excavation last year include 89 brooches, more than 2,000 amber beads, 51 knives, 40 buckles and 15 spearheads. A number of objects likely to have been used for grooming were also found, including toiletry sets with ear wax removers and toothpicks, tweezers, combs and even a cosmetic tube that might have been used as eyeliner or similar.

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

Celtic 'hero'. Twitching nose? 'Bristles'?

And/or: Fortysix is an auspicious number. In esoteric Freemasonry, a 33rd-degree master has the opportunity to advance further by taking 13 extra grades, or degrees. Therefore, a 46th-degree initiate is supposedly a master of space and time, a bodhisattva-like enlightened adept. In the King James Version of the Bible there is the curious incident of Psalm 46. When one counts 46 words down from the first word in Psalm 46, one comes to the word shake. If one counts 46 words from the bottom of Psalm 46, one comes to the word speare. This would indicate that the author, or authors, of the works of William Shakespeare, called by Victor Hugo “a cathedral of words,” are 46th-degree initiates. A hint of this can also be gleaned from the fact that 3 x 46 = 138, the number of the phrase Ben Elohim, or “Son of the Gods.” It is interesting to note that Francis Bacon was chosen by King James to head the translation team for the Bible. Other interesting ramifications of the number 46 include the number of the name of Adam, the first man. It is also said that it took 46 years to build King Solomon’s Temple. Each human being has 46 chromosomes. As we said above, 46 equals the name of God, Elhi, an ancient name for the El in the Sky, the High God of Draco. It is also the number of the Levite priests who ministered to that God. If we think of what the Lallemant credence has to tell us about the process of transformation, then 46 represents a level of personal attainment. By adding the extra three images of the Hendaye chapter, the personal connection of Elhi, 46, becomes the transpersonal connection of the Living God, El Chai, 49, depicted on the tympanum of Saint Trophime in Arles. ['The Mysteries of the Great Cross of Hendaye'].

Side note: When archaeologists in 2008 discovered ivory tusks, amber, ostrich eggshells, and a rock crystal dagger in a 5000-year-old grave in the town of Valencina in southwest Spain, they assumed it belonged to an elite leader. They dubbed the individual within—likely the person with the highest social status in all of Iberia during the time—the Ivory Man.

But that title would more accurately be the Ivory Lady, researchers assert today in Scientific Reports. A state-of-the-art analysis of the remains’ proteins indicates this esteemed person was a woman. Researchers say no men occupied a comparable status in this society.

Valencina, near modern-day Seville, sprawled over 450 hectares during its peak in the Copper Age, between 3200 B.C.E. and 2200 B.C.E. At the time, Risch says, it would have been a bit like “the New York City of Europe.” Emerging wealth from both productive hunting and agriculture funded an era of creativity, he says, and created a hub for trading, exchanging information, and feasting.

Most Iberians of the time were buried in group graves. However, the opulent grave discovered in 2008 contained only a single occupant.

Ivory bag rings have been found in more than 70 cemeteries across southern, central, and eastern England dating to between the late-5th and 7th centuries AD. These rings are most frequently found in richly furnished female graves, and would have served as the framework for bags that hung at the waist.... Recent excavations at an early Anglo-Saxon cemetery in Scremby, Lincolnshire revealed a number of elaborate female burials containing such bag rings....Through a multi-methodological approach, we have established that the ivory used for the Scremby bag rings came from elephants living in an area of young volcanic rocks in Africa at some point during the 5th and 6th centuries AD.....Since most rings have been recovered near the hip, it is thought that the bags were suspended from the waist alongside other objects such as iron knives, pairs of copper alloy girdle hangers, and iron ‘latch lifters’ (Vogt, 1960MacGregor, 1985: 111) (Fig. 3)....

Burial of an adult female (SK17) from the early Anglo-Saxon cemetery at Scremby, Lincolnshire. Girdle hangers and a bag with an ivory ring are positioned at her left hip (white arrow / inset), whilst a pair of annular brooches were worn at the shoulders, strings of beads were hung around her neck, and a stone spindle whorl was placed near her right foot.

Compared with other burials in the Iberian region during the Copper Age, “the Ivory Lady totally stands out, head and shoulders above the rest, either male or female,” García Sanjuán says.

Her skeletal development suggests she was only seventeen to twentyfive years old when she died. The researchers hypothesize that she didn’t inherit her wealth and status because infant burials of this time lack grave goods, suggesting that prestige was not inherited. They propose the Ivory Lady had charisma or other unique skills that set her above other members of her society. And she wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty: Her bones bear the signs of hard physical labor.

“This is a leader who leads through example,” García Sanjuán says. “She did not have a life of comfort or luxury.”

One remarkable piece of ivory found in her tomb is a full tusk from an African elephant, which must have come from that continent. Isotopes in her bones suggest she mostly lived locally, but if she had traveled to other regions, she might have had an edge in society, researchers say. “Mobility is something that’s very closely linked to power,” says Samantha Scott Reiter of the National Museum of Denmark, who wasn't involved in the study.

Elephant Island.

African vs. Asian Elephants: African elephants have larger ears than their Asian counterparts. An African elephant’s ears can grow up to six feet long and four feet wideWhy the difference? African elephants live in sub-Saharan Africa, where they’re exposed to extreme temperatures and intense sun. In contrast, Asian elephants inhabit shady rainforests in Asia, so they don’t face the same heat challenges. As a result, Asian elephants have smaller ears.

The Church of Saint George was carved downwards from a type of volcanic tuff. This is the sole architectural material that was used in the structure. It has been dated to the late 12th or early 13th century AD, and thought to have been constructed during the reign of King Gebre Mesqel Lalibela, of the late Zagwe dynasty. Question. 'FLAT' TOP?

Conflicting historical accounts by contemporary writers have also confounded the issue of which species of elephant was hunted for its ivory in the 5th-7th centuries AD. For example, writing in the 7th century, Isidore of Seville suggested a reliance on Asian elephants following the exhaustion of African herds during the preceding Roman period. Hills (2001: 135-6), however, makes a convincing argument that ivory entering Northern Europe at this time originated in East Africa, in particular via the Christian Kingdom of Aksum located in modern-day Eritrea and northern Ethiopia. Excavations at the site of Aksum have revealed considerable evidence for ivory working, and it is said the kingdom was a major manufacturer and distributor of ivory between the 3rd and 7th centuries AD (Phillipson, 2000a).

Chemical traces of wine, cannabis, and cinnabar—a bright, scarlet-colored form of mercury that can be used as a pigment or inhaled and ingested—were also found near her body. To the authors, these substances suggest she was involved in religious rituals.

Pella (Greek: Πέλλα) is an ancient city located in Central Macedonia, Greece. It served as the capital of the ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon...The name is probably derived from the word pella, (Ancient Greek: πέλλα), "stone" which seems to appear in some other toponyms in Greece like Pellene....With the prefix "α" it forms the word ἀπέλλα, apella, "fence, enclosure of stones".[1][2] Robert Beekes relates the word πέλλα with the name of the city, but suggests that it probably has pre-Greek origin.

Side note: "You can trace the origins of wine all the way back through history… rumour has it that the god Dionysus – the son of Zeus and Semele –  was the first to discover the fermented juice of the wild vine. The taste of the juice was so great that he quickly shared this newly discovered delight with the nymphs and mountain shepherds. When the shepherd tasted the wines for themselves, they soon forgot their sorrows and their souls filled with euphoria. But Dionysus did not rest on it; he decided to transform into a woman and went to find farmers and villagers and transferred to them his agricultural knowledge and wine production."

“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."

And/or: "These tripods were typically crafted from bronze or clay. They consisted of three legs attached to a circular base, which supported a bowl or plate on top. The bowl or plate often featured intricate designs or patterns carved into it. Use of Tripods in Art and Sculpture: Tripods were not limited to religious rituals alone; they also played a significant role in art and sculpture during ancient times. Greek artists incorporated tripods into their works as decorative elements or as stands for displaying other objects. Greek vase painters often depicted mythological scenes with figures standing next to tripods. In architectural sculptures, tripods were carved as freestanding structures or as part of larger compositions. Sculptors used tripods as bases for statues or as supports for offering tables in temples."

A sacrificial tripod, whose name comes from the Greek meaning "three-footed", is a three-legged piece of religious furniture used in offerings and other ritual procedures. This ritual role derives from its use as a simple support for a cooking vessel placed over a fire. As a seat or stand, the tripod is the most stable furniture construction for uneven ground, hence its use is universal and ancient.
Tripods had two types and several functions. Firstly, some oracles sat on large tripods to pronounce. Far more common were the tripods and bowls in which smaller sacrifices were burnt. These are particularly associated with Apollo and the Delphic oracle in ancient Greece. These were also given to temples as votive offerings, awarded as prizes in contests associated with religious festivals, and just given as gifts between individuals.

Continued: A nearby set of Copper Age burials, previously published, backs up the idea that women in the region held power. Located 100 meters south of the Ivory Lady’s tomb, a domed structure contains the only graves with a level of opulence close to that of the Ivory Lady, dated to two or three generations after she lived. Of the 20 people buried in the largest chamber, 15 have been confirmed to be women between the ages of 20 and 35. Some women were dressed in elaborate garments made from beads carved from marine shells, including a full-body tunic. All these women had very high levels of mercury in their bones, likely due to their exposure to cinnabar. The team speculates they may have been priestesses, with the Ivory Lady a founding religious ancestor. Taken together, the Ivory Lady and these women challenge longstanding views of prehistoric women as mere extensions of their powerful male partners, Reiter says.

Isle of Man also has same.

Side note: The term ‘latchlifter’ is often applied to simple hooks with a handle which could be used to open a bolt. Manning (1985, 88-89, pls. 37-40) lists several iron examples from late Iron Age and Roman sites; they also occur in the early-medieval world, up to the 9th century (Ottaway in Evans and Loveluck 2009, 190). They do not appear to have been made from copper alloy. We have very few recorded on the PAS database; if you do record one, use the object type LATCHLIFTER. A date-range of 100 BC to 800 AD is probably appropriate.


A working example: "Girdle hangers are an early Anglo Saxon dress accessory of the 5th and 6th centuries. As decorated copper-alloy copies of functional keys, occurring exclusively in a number of wealthier female graves in the Anglian regions, girdle hangers have attracted special attention among scholars. It is commonly assumed that they played a significant role as material symbols of female social, cultural and gender identity, the most prominent being their interpretation as insignia of a woman´s household authority. This rests on a number of written sources from other periods which give clues on the symbolic significance of keys in women´s lives. Up to the present day, this interpretation has not been the subject of an archaeological analysis, albeit the large number of contextual finds that have been excavated throughout England up to the present day. The purpose of the present PhD study is to provide such analysis. A systematic material and context analysis of girdle hangers based on the early Anglo-Saxon cemetery evidence is needed in order to explore the extent to which the material record itself can provide us with relevant data. Important observations on the finds material itself have been decisively brought forward by the growing number of metal-detected finds recorded through the PAS in recent years. Therefore the data collection will have to include this rich data.

The ceremonial shield dates to the late fourth century B.C.E. and was discovered in 1976....

The ceremonial shield is in the basic form of an aspis but with more ornate decoration and is made of wood, leather, glass, gold, and ivory.[1][4] The front of the shield includes a geometric pattern of ivory surrounding the border, while a gold wreath encompasses two deteriorated ivory figures in the center.[4] Because of the erosion of the figures, their identities are not clear, but a male figures appears to tower over a smaller, female figure.[4] The reverse side of the shield includes an ornate golden handle in a "T" shape with floral designs at the ends. Near the middle of the handle grip, two small lions are carved into the gold.[4] Scholars such as N. G. L. Hammond believe that the figures are likely a symbol of power or royalty and that the shield's rich design fits with the other grave goods found in the royal tomb, which were made of gold, silver, and ivory.

External / Internal.

In 354 BCE, during the siege of Methone, Philip suffered his most severe wound: the loss of his right eye. The Oracle at Delphi had foretold this event, linking it to Philip’s sacrilegious act of spying on his wife, Olympia, during an intimate encounter with a snake. The Oracle revealed that the creature was Zeus-Ammon, the true father of Olympia’s child. Philip’s eye, which had witnessed this divine union, was destined to be lost1

From a different perspective: For our image, we've chosen the ceremonial shield found in the main burial chamber. It is chryselephantine, meaning made of gold and ivory. Those materials were considered the most valuable in the Greek World, and their combination was usually reserved to the statues of gods in major temples, like the one of Zeus at Olympia, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The Vergina shield, using the same materials, is unique. The shield itself does not survive, as it was probably made of an organic material, leather or starched linen or wood. Its elaborate decorations do survive. Its presentation is a triumph of the art of archaeological conservation. It has wave patterns and meanders in ivory around the edge, interspersed with gold plaques showing the sun or star symbol that was apparently the emblem of the Macedonian royal dynasty.

'Shield' patterns.

At the centre, there is a scene of two figures carved in ivory: a male Greek warrior killing an Amazon. This is almost certainly a depiction of Achilles, the greatest of the Greek legendary heroes and a supposed ancestor to Philip and Alexander, fighting the Amazon Queen Penthiselea, and falling in love with her the very moment he kills her.

And/or: "A new generation of forensics has turned up surprising results and taken us closer to establishing just who was buried and when. Materials on the remains, melted gold on bones, and a crippling leg wound reveals a limping warrior woman revered as an 'Amazon' at death, and a king adorned with a gold wreath and ceremonial shield as the flames climbed the pyre in emulation of a Homeric hero....The identity debate always needed to accommodate a weapon of great mystery: with the female bones lay a gold-plated Scythian 'gorytos', the hip-slung bow-and-arrow quivers of the formidable Scythian archers. Over 1,000 excavated graves in Ukraine and the Russian Steppes have proven the existence of these female warriors, latter-day 'Amazons', who were often buried with horses, weapons, tools and their typical nomad jewellery."

And/or: Melted gold droplets found on the upper vertebrae begged the question of whether the male was initially wearing his wreath as flames licked the funeral pyre because his incomplete gold oak wreath showed signs of intense heat and lacked the pieces found in the pyre remains heaped on the tomb roof. An ivory-and-glass-decorated ceremonial shield also showed signs of exposure to fire. It appears the dead king was presented to the onlookers battle-ready in all his finery as the fire began cleansing his corpse, before being whipped away for interment below with his collected and washed bones.


Tomb II remained unlooted and contained an exceptional amount of grave goods. An impressive gold larynx, decorated with plant motifs and marked with the star of Macedon, was found in the main room in a marble sarcophagus and contained the cremated remains of middle-aged male, thought to be Philip II (Andronicos, Thesslonike Museum: 27). Grave goods include: a large quantity of silver and bronze vessels, decorated furniture (an ivory couch), a splendid gold oak wreath (which adorned the cremated bones), a silver gilded diadem, weapons, armor and wine drinking vessels among others things (Borza: 258). Ivory heads that once adorned wooden beds were also found; two of the most impressive include a bust of Alexander the Great and another of King Philip II: they are “the only genuine portraits of the two rulers” (Andronicos, Thesslonike Museum: 15). In the antechamber, which is usually designated for grave goods, a second, less impressive gold larynx was found with the remains of a young woman.

Excavation of the Great Tumulus at Vergina began in 1976. In 1977 he uncovered three fourth century tombs. Tomb I, which is usually referred to as the Tomb of Persephone, is a large cist grave. Because of looters, all that is left are bones belonging to a male, a female and an infant {Qurna?}. However, the Tomb of Persephone contains the best-preserved wall paintings from the time; one wall depicts the mythological scene of the Rape of Persephone, to which the tomb’s name is attributed. Most impressive of the three tombs is Tomb II, which is usually identified as the tomb of Philip II of Macedon. AND/OR: "A dual concept is contained in the seventh principle. The first half is itself a synthetic idea. Primarily it is a concept including the three Alchemical Principles of Salt, Sulpher and Mercury, considered as an undivided unit.....Three DORMANT principles, for which reason it is often called Mercury alone {not the planet}.  Its other names are the Quintessence, Azoth, our Water, or the Astral Ether...It quintessentialises the four elements of Earth, Air, Water, and Fire. It is axiomatic that any single principle or unit is multiple when observed from a higher level - that is, with additional insight. A multiplicity is a unity when approached or seen from below......We may now glance at the remaining DUAL concept of the SEVENTH principle {Element 'earth' i.e., foundation}....The instinctive life, the body consciousness, or the brain mind. It corresponds with the mythological Persephone, the animal or unredeemed soul which is in exile from the promised land, lost, wandering in the wild darkness, ever in search for some abiding city...." [''The Philosophers Stone' / I. Regardie]. Question. How many wives did he have? QENA to enlarge + 'Smith and Jones' + "three and a half."

This intricate burial protocol is strongly suggestive that whoever performed the funeral rites for the “king” in Tomb II followed Homeric convention as laid down in the Iliad and Odyssey. The bones from four horses and nine dogs {'thirteen'?} had also been sacrificed that day, as described at the funeral Achilles held for Patroclus at Troy. Alexander is said to have memorised the Iliad complete. Moreover, the design of Tomb II conformed to the ideal Double vaulted chambers recommended by Plato in his Laws written a decade or so before Philip's death.

Interestingly, Aegae was not the only capital of ancient Macedonia. In the 5th century BCE, a new capital was founded at Pella, about 40 miles to the east, midway between Aegae and modern Thessaloniki1However, Aegae remains a crucial archaeological site, and its extensive necropolis contains over 700 burial mounds, providing insights into the social structure and history of the ancient town.

''Today the village of Vergina overlaps the ancient site of Aigai {Aegae}, or the "place of the goats." Aigai was the first capital of ancient Macedonia and remained an important ceremonial center despite being supplanted by Pella...." [Page 26 'Archaeology' May-June 2024].

Memphis (ArabicمَنْفromanizedManfpronounced [mænf]; Bohairic CopticⲙⲉⲙϥⲓGreekΜέμφις), or Men-nefer, was the ancient capital of Inebu-hedj, the first nome of Lower Egypt that was known as mḥw ("North").[3] Its ruins are located in the vicinity of the present-day village of Mit Rahina (Arabic: ميت رهينة), in markaz (countyBadrashinGizaEgypt.[4] This modern name is probably derived from the late Ancient Egyptian name for Memphis mjt-rhnt meaning "Road of the Ram-Headed Sphinxes."

Coincidence or a meaningful one?

When archaeologists in 2008 discovered ivory tusks, amber, ostrich eggshells, and a rock crystal dagger WITH IVORY HILT and sheath in a 5000-year-old grave in the town of Valencina in southwest Spain, they assumed it belonged to an elite leader. They dubbed the individual within—likely the person with the highest social status in all of Iberia during the time—the Ivory Man.
But that title would more accurately be the Ivory Lady, researchers assert today in Scientific Reports. A state-of-the-art analysis of the remains’ proteins indicates this esteemed person was a woman. Researchers say no men occupied a comparable status in this society. Ivory comb also found along with flint dagger with amber pommel. Question. 'Key' shape?

Refresher: "Why,’ I asked, ‘is the eclipse such a deep experience? What is this sense of sadness one feels? It is a far deeper experience than one would expect of the temporary shutting off of the light. I have not seen many eclipses, yet I know that it is an experience . . . rather, as they say, “as though someone were walking over my grave”. What is this experience?’ Mark had smiled at my outworn image, and, when I had finished the question, nodded: “This feeling of death is there because the symbolism of the eclipse reaches into the very fundament of the human soul. There is a sort of presage of death, but not in the way one might immediately imagine. You'll remember, from your readings of the hermetic literature, that there’s mention of ishon, the small man?” ‘I seem to have gone a long way from your question — yet this is not the case....

Asleep - ready to awaken?

When we experience an eclipse, we feel, as it were, the “death” of this dwarf. We feel that he has been dropped into a narcotic state. The human spine, which grows upwards towards the Sun, loses for a few seconds its upward thrust towards verticality.? It wishes to “sleep” — to become horizontal to the surface of the Earth. In this respect, it feels the impulse to become like the backbones of the animal realm — parallel to the Earth, and completely under the dominion of the Moon. The human is suddenly pulled back into its atavistic animal-like state. It needs to be led out of this state of being, which, in comparison with the human state, is virtually a sleep.’

There are the two Ways — the Way Up and the Way Down — and among the ways up is the Way of the Fool.

'Ladder' made from it?

The zero marks the intersection between the Way Up and the Way down, where there is neither Up nor Down. After all, a wheel in motion must have some point at its centre which does not move — this is the STILL point mentioned in the hermetic literature. Even a ladder pitched between Heaven and Hell must have a point where there is neither up nor down: this much Dante recognized, with his usual genius, when he wrote in his Inferno about his experience at the centre of the Earth when the movement up suddenly became the movement down."” This could perhaps be the zero place. ‘Here, in this eclipse, my own mind perceives a meaning which is different from the one you perceive, yet however we define it, an eclipse is a meeting of circles which are zeros. See how the shadow of the Earth’s rim cuts the Moon down to a crescent. Soon, in a few minutes, the crescent will be gone.

'Cracked mirror'. What's the remedy?

For a while, the Moon will appear to be a dark zero — a nothing. Then the cycle will begin again, breathing a new life of light into the Moon. Soon, it will become a great zero of light in the skies. This is a conjuring trick on a cosmic scale, which is repeated relatively few times in any lifetime. ‘Could this be one reason why the Fool of the Tarot pack is given the strange number zero? It is a curious number, for any esotericist will tell you that there is no such thing as nothing. Yet even the Fool, and even the eclipsed Moon, is not nothing, as behind appearance there is always spirit. In the past, scientists used to say that Nature abhors a vacuum — this may be true in a scientific sense, but it is certainly true in a Spiritual sense. There is no such thing as a vacuum, for the entire cosmos is a conspiracy against nothingness. Everywhere is filled with God: perhaps this is the secret of the zero?

‘In any case, the eclipse is complete, and is answering your question about the zero. We are looking down the Earth’s shadow into what appears to be nothing: yet it is really the dancing ground of angels....

The sunlight flushed pink light over us as we stepped into the outer world, beneath the plethora of zodiacal images on the walls. I had flown out to meet Mark because we had various ideas to discuss in connection with his book — especially those issues relating to footnotes and bibliographic sources — but, for one reason or another, we did not get around to these questions at all. On the night of the eclipse, we sat on one of the hillsides which rise between Grand Anse and Pink Gin Beach, and watched the slow motion of the Moon as it edged towards the drama of its eclipse. Our view was complete, undisturbed even by a wisp of cloud. We were leaning back into an incline of hillside, in a position from which we could most easily watch the Moon, which was almost reaching the zenith. From below came the distant thud of waves as the Atlantic broke on the sands of Pink Gin Beach. In the distance were the lights of houses and restaurants on the further side of the great bay around which nestled the port of St George’s. Here was peace, and I could see why Mark had adopted it as a retreat......

Side note: Onoda last remaining comrade, Private First Class Kinshichi Kozuka, was killed in 1972 from shots fired by local police while they were burning rice they had collected from local farmers - leaving Onada alone, until 1974. That was when he met and became friends with Norio Suzuki, a Japanese man who was travelling round the world looking for, as he put it, 'Lieutenant Onoda, a panda, and the Abominable Snowman, in that order'. He found Onoda and they became friends - but he still could not persuade him to 'surrender' ...Suzuki eventually learned that Onoda had been waiting for surrender orders from a superior officer, and after returning to Japan with photos of them together as proof of their meeting, the Japanese government located his former commanding officer, Major Yoshimi Taniguchi, who had become a bookseller since the war ended....

Taniguchi went to Lubang Island and met with Onoda, to finally deliver on the promise he had made in 1944: 'Whatever happens, we'll come back for you,' before ordering him to 'cease military activities and operations immediately and place themselves under the command of the nearest superior officer'. Onoda finally surrendered, turning over his sword, 500 rounds of ammunition, hand grenades and the dagger given to him by his mother in 1944, for use in the event he was captured....Onoda was something of a celebrity after he returned to Japan, publishing his autobiography of life as a guerrilla fighter in a war which had long since ended. However he left the limelight behind in 1975 to move to Brazil and raise cattle - marrying in 1976 and only returning to Japan in 1984 where he founded an educational camp for young people, Onoda Shizen Juku (Onoda Nature Camp). Despite admitting he killed several people during his time on Lubang Island he was given a full pardon for his actions there by President Ferdinand Marcos. He died in 2014 aged 91, with the then Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihde Suga saying in tribute: 'I still vividly remember that I was reassured of the end of the war when Mr. Onoda returned to Japan'......"

The eclipse began shortly before 11.30p.m. Caribbean local time. The comet Hale-Bopp was, in theory at least, visible to the north-west, below Perseus and Cassiopeia. Unfortunately, neither I, nor Mark Hedsel saw the comet on that occasion."

lunar eclipse is an astronomical event that occurs when the Moon moves into the Earth's shadow, causing the Moon to be darkened.[1] Such an alignment occurs during an eclipse season, approximately every six months, during the full moon phase, when the Moon's orbital plane is closest to the plane of the Earth's orbit. This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are exactly or very closely aligned (in syzygy) with Earth between the other two, which can happen only on the night of a full moon when the Moon is near either lunar node. The type and length of a lunar eclipse depend on the Moon's proximity to the lunar node.[

Man in the moon?

When the Moon is totally eclipsed by the Earth (a "deep eclipse"),[2][3] it takes on a reddish color that is caused by the planet when it completely blocks direct sunlight from reaching the Moon's surface, as the only light that is reflected from the lunar surface is what has been refracted by the Earth's atmosphere. This light appears reddish due to the Rayleigh scattering of blue light, the same reason sunrises and sunsets are more orange than during the day. Unlike a solar eclipse, which can only be viewed from a relatively small area of the world, a lunar eclipse may be viewed from anywhere on the night side of Earth. A total lunar eclipse can last up to nearly two hours, while a total solar eclipse lasts only a few minutes at any given place, because the Moon's shadow is smaller. Also, unlike solar eclipses, lunar eclipses are safe to view without any eye protection or special precautions.

The symbol for a lunar eclipse (or indeed, any body in the shadow of another) is 🝶 (U+1F776 🝶).

Comet Hale–Bopp (formally designated C/1995 O1) is a comet that was one of the most widely observed of the 20th century and one of the brightest seen for many decades.

Alan Hale and Thomas Bopp discovered Comet Hale–Bopp separately on July 23 {twentythree}, 1995, before it became visible to the naked eye. It is difficult to predict the maximum brightness of new comets with any degree of certainty, but Hale–Bopp exceeded most predictions when it passed perihelion on April 1, 1997, reaching about magnitude −1.8. It was visible to the naked eye for a record 18 months, due to its massive nucleus size. This is twice as long as the Great Comet of 1811, the previous record holder. Accordingly, Hale–Bopp was dubbed the great comet of 1997.

Cassiopeia was the wife of King Cepheus of Aethiopia. Her pride got the best of her when she bragged that her daughter Andromeda was more beautiful than the Nereids, part of Poseidon’s retinue. As punishment for this affront, Poseidon sent a sea monster Cetus to destroy Aethiopia. The only way to stop the destruction was to sacrifice their daughter Andromeda to the monster, so they chained her to a rock on the shore. Just as Cetus approached to claim his sacrifice, Perseus, returning from his slaying of Medusa, saw the beautiful Andromeda, and saved her from the beast. Aethiopia was saved. Upon Cassiopeia’s death, Poseidon placed her in the stars, where she was chained to her throne and must spend half of the year upside-down as further punishment.

A {working?} example: "The conditions of life in which a man is placed at the beginning of his work, in which, so to speak, the work finds him, are the best possible for him, at any rate, at the beginning of the work. These conditions are natural for him. These conditions are the man himself, because a man's life and its conditions correspond to what he is. Any conditions different from these created by life would be artificial for a man and in such artificial conditions the work would not be able to touch every side of his being at once. Thanks to this, the fourth way affects simultaneously every side of man's being. It is work on the three 'rooms' at once...So that when a man attains Will on the fourth way, he can make use of it because he has acquired control of all his bodily, emotional and intellectual functions. And besides, he has saved a great deal of time by working on the three sides {'rooms'} of his being in parallel and simultaneously... " ['In Search of the Miraculous']. Try ''side{s}''.

Understanding, however, is the function of three centers. Thus the thinking apparatus may know something. But understanding appears only when a man feels and senses what is connected with it. We have spoken earlier about mechanicalness. A man cannot say that he understands the idea of mechanicalness if he only knows about it with his mind. He must feel it with his whole mass, with his whole being; then he will understand it." [Same book, includes intalics].

"The etymology of the name is uncertain. The spelling Ἀπόλλων (pronounced [a.pól.lɔːn] in Classical Attic) had almost superseded all other forms by the beginning of the common era, but the Doric form, Apellon (Ἀπέλλων), is more archaic, as it is derived from an earlier *Ἀπέλjων. It probably is a cognate to the Doric month Apellaios (Ἀπελλαῖος),[11] and the offerings apellaia (ἀπελλαῖα) at the initiation of the young men during the family-festival apellai (ἀπέλλαι).[12][13]

"According to some scholars, the words are derived from the Doric word apella (ἀπέλλα), which originally meant "wall," "fence for animals" and later "assembly within the limits of the square."[14][15] Apella (Ἀπέλλα) is the name of the popular assembly in Sparta,[14] corresponding to the ecclesia (ἐκκλησία).

R. S. P. Beekes rejected the connection of the theonym with the noun apellai and suggested a Pre-Greek proto-form *Apalyun."..... Hesychius connects the name Apollo with the Doric ἀπέλλα (apella), which means "assembly", so that Apollo would be the god of political life, and he also gives the explanation σηκός (sekos), "fold", in which case Apollo would be the god of flocks and herds.[19] In the ancient Macedonian language πέλλα (pella) means "stone,"....."

And/or: A moot hill or mons placiti (statute hill)[1] is a hill or mound historically used as an assembly or meeting place, as a moot hall is a meeting or assembly building, also traditionally to decide local issues. In early medieval Britain, such hills were used for "moots", meetings of local people to settle local business. Among other things, proclamations might be read; decisions might be taken; court cases might be settled at a moot.

West Kennet long barrow.

Although some moot hills were naturally occurring features or had been created long before as burial mounds, others were purpose-built....

Although the word moot or mote is of Old English origin, deriving from the verb to meet, it has come to have a wider meaning throughout the United Kingdom; initially referring to any popular gathering.

In England, the word folkmoot in time came to mean a more specific local assembly with recognised legal rights. In Scotland the term is used in the literature for want of any other single accepted term.

The Scottish Gaelic place name "Tom a' Mhòid" translates as "the hill of the court". The Gaelic form has the familiar Gaelic word "mòd" in the context of the annual cultural event, a "gathering", but in this context, one for judgement and possible execution. The term is cognate with the English word "moot".....

The abbey and Moot Hill lie immediately northeast of the Palace of Scone, about 50m above sea level. The royal assembly site at Scone originated as a power centre in the early medieval period. The moot continued to act as a royal focal point and was the primary coronation site for Scottish monarchs throughout the medieval and into the post medieval period. It is a large flat-topped artificial oval mound. The mound is approximately 100m in diameter north-south by 70m transversely and is surrounded by a ditch approximately 8m to 9m wide by 3m deep, which survives as a buried feature....

Assembly mound?

Assembly mounds, coronation locations, thing sites and judicial gathering places are common features in northwest Europe, and have a long history. While there are many important assembly sites in Scotland, such as Doomster Hill in Govan, Finlaggen in Islay, Dingwall, in Caithness and Law Ting Holm in Shetland, none are as well-known or have such a clearly recognised importance as Scone. The assembly site of Scone rose to prominence in the early medieval period. The mound may date from this period but it could also be a reused prehistoric feature. A similar development has been argued for other assembly sites; at Tynwald on the Isle of Mann, it has been suggested that the assembly mound is a modified prehistoric barrow. Whatever the origin of the mound at Scone by the ninth century it had become a regional power centre acting as the primary assembly place for the Kingdom of Scotland, a coronation site and potential royal centre. The importance of Scone for the kingdom is highlighted by its interchangeable use in historic documents with Scotland and Alba, as the early Kingdom of Scotland was often referred to as the Kingdom of Scone. This is very similar to the relationship between the royal site of Tara and the Kingdom of Ireland.

Isle of Man also has same.

Flat top?

The earliest reference to the Moot Hill is a document from the tenth century referred to as the Chronicles of the Kings of Alba, which mentions the Hill of Faith in Scone. It was on the Hill of Faith in 906 that King Constantine II and the Bishop Cellach met and the King swore to uphold the customs of the church, the earliest reference to the Moot Hill and to a coronation carried out at the site with the involvement of a church official. This may have marked the transition from the coronation being a solely secular practice to one that had significant church involvement. Tradition has it that it was around this time that an ecclesiastical centre was founded at the site, possibly a Culdee monastery.

Side note: "The Hebrew term is beyt knesset "house of assembly" The Greek-derived word synagogue also means "assembly" and is commonly used in English. Ashkenazi Jews have traditionally used the Yiddish term shul (from the ancient Greek schola (which is also the source of the English "school") via the German Schule, "school") in everyday speech, and many continue to do so in English."

gog-magogFrom a different perspective {a stage further?}: "The modern English word "Hebrew" is derived from Old French Ebrau, via Latin from the Ancient Greek Ἑβραῖος (hebraîos) and Aramaic 'ibrāy, all ultimately derived from Biblical Hebrew Ivri (עברי‎), one of several names for the Israelite (Jewish and Samaritan) people (Hebrews). It is traditionally understood to be an adjective based on the name of Abraham's ancestor, Eber, mentioned in Genesis 10:21. The name is believed to be based on the Semitic root ʕ-b-r (עבר‎), meaning "beyond", "other side", "across";[26] interpretations of the term "Hebrew" generally render its meaning as roughly "from the other side [of the river/desert]"—i.e., an exonym for the inhabitants of the land of Israel and Judah, perhaps from the perspective of Mesopotamia, Phoenicia or Transjordan (with the river referred to being perhaps the Euphrates, Jordan or Litani; or maybe the northern Arabian Desert between Babylonia and Canaan).[27] Compare the word Habiru or cognate Assyrian ebru, of identical meaning."

"The word 'mystic' is from the Greek word 'muo' which means ''to be silent.''

'Ain't No Mountain High Enough' / Marvin Gaye.

'The Lonely Mountain' ['The Hobbit'].

Question. What is the difference between the words ''magic'' {and/or 'magical'} and ''mystical?'' and why are they applied? Enlarged elsewhere. Try Part 4 before those first impressions make one yawn; while 'creating' an inner 'vision' of the armchair and TV set.

''Matter and spirit'' = 'Son of'?

A working example {i.e., in the 'ritual' sense of the word}: ''This was the secret of true, spiritual magic. Yes, timing is important, and tools can hold a charge, and portions and props add to energy and help to shift consciousness, and the focusing of ones mind, and the direction of ones will are essential, but ultimately, the true magical incredients are you and your connection to the divine. 'Magic' requires a capacity for communion with the sacred, because the magical realm that one enters is the realm of the heart. Without capacity for compassion and love, no magic will be truly spiritual in its texture, form, or results....The union of spirit and matter.'' [Page 219 'The Book of Shadows'].

'Realm of the heart'?

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

The Quran uses 99 aspects/ names with the same intent {but from a different perspective} as the '72' mentioned earlier in relation to the Hebrew Kabbala. Both suggesting the importance of 'equilibrium' within that personnel journey, 99 aspects within the ''one.'' Within the 'whole'. Equals a completion of something, relative to an understanding. Explained throughout.

That individual 'effort' represented astronomically no more so than with Orion. Sometimes shown with a club. Symbolic of that 'unknown' [ unconscious and or shadow ] state of mind. Or with a 'bow' now representing a conscious state of mind [ i.e.,positive in relation to the effort taken]. Symbolic of a 'direction' taken by way of focus of thought, emotion and will. Those three concepts that are used throughout [regardless of place, time or culture]. Represented now as something ''under his belt.'' Something achieved, in part or whole. Think about it, in relation to the effort taken by thought as opposed to 'a club.' Wild man link, whose brother was the 'green man'. [''Green language'' link. Both explained elsewhere].

n Britain today there is only one piece of ' objective art 'that expresses the spiritual world perfectly without the distorting influence of a human personalty. Many who....The Lohan, A chinese statue of a Buddhist monk.

''In Britain today there is only one 'piece of objective art that expresses the spiritual world perfectly without the distorting influence of a human personalty...The Lohan, A chinese statue of a Buddhist monk.'' [Taken from The Secret History] . Question. That inner one? SILENCE? i.e.,what the author of The Presence of Other Worlds calls ''the wellspring of the psyche.'' Question. Why different colors on different shoulders, i.e.,left and right? Same question as why only the left shoulder in relation to the movements around the Ka'ba. Why should the right be left exposed? Understand those keys in order to understand why. In order to understand the subject as a whole. Clue, it has something to do with ''naked'' symbolism. Keep a check on those first impressions, i.e., put ''naked'' in the search box. Think about it, i.e., in relation to "an effort taken", by 'way of' thought/emotion/will, as opposed to an effort taken with a 'club', i.e.,wild man link. Explained elsewhere.

Common parlance..."bull [key] in a china shop". That link to the 'thigh' of the 'Big Dipper' or one of the two 'pillars' of Hebrew fame, i.e.,''by strength.''

"The kings arrival in the sky is a new birth...The divine entities dance attendance on him, reassemble his bones, give him back the use of his senses, by opening his eyes and mouth, rituals which are accomplished 'magically' in the ''Room of Gold'' on the mummy or its effigy with two adzes and the presentation of a bull's thigh." [Extract from the book 'Egyptian Mysteries'].

Question. Right or left thigh or does it matter?

Side note: ''The Inca's referred to gold as the 'sweat of the sun'...'' ['Pawn Stars' / 2020].

''In science Archimedes is said to have cried out ''i have found it'' after determining the means of finding the purity for GOLD.''

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

''Before the Spanish conquest- all mostly with geometric shapes/designs''.

''A Kero is an ancient South America ceremonial cup. Keros were often made in pairs and used for drinking chicha—corn beer—in political and religious rituals. In Inca times, the Inca king would exchange a divine toast with his “father” the sun. The symbolic exchange of “sharing a drink” permeated all levels of society.'' [Wiki].

'Hathor Rising' / A. Roberts.

The cheerful brilliance of the morning lent youth to Earth's old bones, touched the peak with gold, gleamed along the river and put the gardens en fete..." ['Her-Bak'].

''Peak'' in relation to Al-qurn. Anything?

"Having taken the bow, the great weapon of the Secret Teaching, one should fix in it, the arrow sharpened by constant meditation. Drawing it with a mind filled with that [Brahman]. Penetrate, O good looking youth, that imperishable as the Mark. [Mundaka Upanishad, ii 3, 4]. Taken from inset page, 'The Yoga of the Kathopanishad' by Sri Krishna Prem.

"The Pranava [Aum] is the bow, the arrow is the self. Brahman is said to be the mark. With heedfulness is it to be penetrated. One should become one with it as the arrow in the mark."[Same book, same page].

A different interpretation, but of the same ilk.

Another piece of objective art?

"Under the sign of Sagittarius you will learn single mindedness, the ability to follow your visions and develop your intuition. The secret behind all success is to be single speed directly towards the goal you are aiming....When the burning arrow is discharged you must follow it until it has reached its target ...Find a goal worth aiming for and strive toward it....If you aim your bow in the wrong direction, and persistently continue along this road you will inevitably get lost. The road back will therefore be long and troublesome. Here we touch on the second lesson of Sagittarius. The goals you are striving for should be based on intuition, idealism and higher vision." [Page 70, 'Esoteric Astrology' by Torgny Jansson].

Its physical representation, as an example...being the Stonehenge Archer, "purposely buried in an outer ditch". 'See' it?

And/or: Some say that the arrow of Sagittarius points towards the heart {Antares} - of the Scorpion.

Side note: "Why did you give him an astronomer's telescope to carry?...''Because he's searching in the clouds for the wellspring that is flowing at his feet''. ['Journey into the Light'].

Inner or Outer?

''All one has to do is turn around the arrow of ones attention. The Katha Upanishad puts it this way: 'God made the senses turn outward, man therefore looks outwards, not into himself. But occasionally, a daring soul, desiring immortality {or understanding a 'mind set'}, has looked back and found himself. In fact the ''daring soul'' doesn't lack encouragement. He's surrounded by countless reminders and opportunities, countless means of reversing the arrow of attention  - if only he's sufficiently inquisitive about his true identity, and only if he's willing to drop for a moment opinions about himself based on hearsay and memory, and imagination and to rely on the PRESENT EVIDENCE...." [Page 56 'On Having No Head' / D. Harding. Parenthesis, this readers].

Arrow of Time?

N.B. Flint nodules {in the shape of arrow heads} at the base {foundation material}- of the small blue stones that divide {'boundary'} the river Avon from the end {and/or beginning} of the path that leads to/from Stonehenge. Prof. Pearson speculates that these smaller blue stones would be in a circular formation. This reader speculates - a semi circle, i.e.,a representation of 'half the journey' - link to 180 degrees {in number symbolism} or a u-turn {'landscape'}. Something half complete - a work still in progress.

Horseshoe shape? {in the micro sense of the word} as in the 'middle' of those sarsen stones?

Benben capstone or should that be Benben-et?

A working example: ''The semicircular 't' hieroglyph, denoting feminine gender, has been inserted into many of her titles.'' {Hatshepsut: From Queen to Pharaoh' / Metropolitan Museum].

"In 520 BC Pythagoras returned to Samos and began a school called The Semi-Circle."

And/or: ''520 life size horses'' found within the  8000 terracotta army of 1st Emperor of China. Buried within a triangular mound. An inverted one is where his tomb is laid. As above so below. ['Ancient Worlds Revealed With Albert Lin': Army of the Afterlife' / 21.11.21].

Isaiah 19:19 for 'a different take' on the same theme.

Copy cats?

Side note. A U-shaped wooden structure recently found 'buried' at Smiths Cove {'wet/dry'?} - Nova Scotia. ['Curse of Oak Island' / March 2019].

Follow the 'title' to see something other than the obvious.

'Flower'? Archaeologists wonder why the switch from building pyramids to the sun gods - to temples of the sun gods beginning at Saqqara. 'Purification'  {using 'water'} becoming paramount. ['Lost Treasures of Egypt' / S3 E2].

And/or: A semi-circular structure can be seen on the landscape BELOW - when viewed from the rocky outcrop on HIGH - of Rocha Da Mina {Portugal} - the main site of worship to the Celtic god Endovelicus. Many images of pigs found. In the valley below a similar temple found dedicated to same god but now with the water element emphasized. Fire/Soul. Understand that mind set to get beyond the usual : ''they didn't leave any written records behind to explain what it all means.'' ['Lost Relics of the Knights Templars: Celtic Gold. Series 2. Episode 2].

N.B. 'Pigs' a link to the 'White Goddess' {i.e., sows}. In the ''underground'' sense of the word i.e., strong sense of smell - with nose 'close to the earth'. A universal concept. See R. Graves book.

Question. Prof. Pearson after studying with the local natives {Madagascar?} brings one of the 'elders' over to the UK for his opinion on Stonehenge. He is told that it represents the land of the dead/ancestors etc. Was he not told about that universal symbol of the 'river' - that represents a 'return journey' to the 'source' of something?


{One} example of: A triple aspect of something.

Refresher: Marden Henge {near Stonehenge} - recently discovered. Many times larger than Stonehenge. A definite link between 'it' and the river Avon: "The monument itself is only 'D' shaped {semicircle} - Its not a complete enclosure; in fact the whole of the southern side is formed by the river Avon. A great big meander in the river... And a number of springs within the henge as well." ['The Flying Archaeologist'. Enlarged elsewhere].

Side note: The spring of the river Avon - its source. Has a triple aspect to it. Purposely cut out - like a ''three legged animal''. Same program.

And/or: "This is an ancient bronze column, formed of three snake heads, the column being their bodies intertwined, unwinding into the heads that held aloft a great bowl, in classical Greece terms a great tripod, the word "tripod" coming from the Greek meaning "three-footed", used for making offerings or other ritual procedures to the Greek Gods. This ancient sacrificial tripod, originally came from Delphi, later relocated to Constantinople by Constantine I the Great in 324. Along the sides of the column are inscribed the names of more than 24 Greek city states, Greece at the time being no nation, but a land of cities sharing variations of classical Greek culture and religion."

Question. What does ''twentyfour'' represent. Try 'Mystery of Numbers'.Then ''tripod'' / ''trident''.

Try ''twentythree'' to get closer.

The 'stone' that David used to subdue Goliath {lower aspect} - in the 'middle' of the forehead. New Name? And/or: Seti the 1st began the most important building in Egypt: the Hypostyle Hall at Karnac - but it was his son Ramesses that finished it. David began the temple. Solomon finished it. Anything? Amun to Amun-Ra. Something that was once ''hidden'' has now a 'known' value. Question. Quantity or quality?

And/or: ''Sharata and Mesartim {stars in Aries} constitute the twentyseventh nakshatra - the Ashwins, or Horsemen...The Two Horsemen correspond to the Gemini of Rome, but figured as a horse's head. About 400 years before our era this superseded Krittika as leader of the nakshatras...Mesartim {i.e.,a northern binary star represented with the glyph {'Y'}}...has been called the First Star in Aries - as at one time nearest to the equinoctial point...AND/OR....El Nath - 'the butting one' - on the  tip of the northern horn {of Hyades}. This title also appears for Aries and its star of the Hyades according to Whitall, is Ain, from the Arabic 'Ain', the eye, - the northern eye..." [Page 82/390-391 'Star Names Their Lore and Meaning'].

''Tripods'' within Homer's Illiad?

'Fire' link.

And/or: Question. Any connection to 'Y' HVH. While recalling none other than Abraham 'sacrificing' a 'ram' {'Y'} on top of a particular 'mountain' that became the foundation of the very first temple?

Apple of the eye?

Refresher: "Error runs down an inclined plane, while truth has to laboriously climb its way up hill". Question. What picture {symbol?} represents it?

A {practical} example: ''The road ahead will be long - the climb steep.'' [Election victory speech/ Barack Obama].


The Northern Crown.

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

Beginning or end? Any lid?

Continued: A work in progress?...OR just a coincidence..."I asked the women to gather in the area along and in front of the wall and to sit comfortably there in a slight semi circle. Then i asked all the men to stand just in front of the women in a straight line, from edge to edge of the wall. We were now arranged in the shape of a long, shallow, lidded bowl, with the women inside the bowl, and the men forming the lid." ['Serpent of Light Beyond The 2012']. Try ''lid'' and/or ''bowl''.

Tower in relation to 'Temple'?

Side note: "The dry, sere landscape of rocks and sand lies in a small valley between the Theban Hills, dominated by the pyramid shaped mountain. Ancient Egyptians called Ta Dehent, indicating the top of the forehead or the third eye. Modern Egyptians have named it Al Qurn, the horn."



Semicircle of Greek sages {'perennial' philosophers?} - guarding the 'tomb' of Nectanebo 2nd. Central figure = Homer. Some link the same with Alexander - the 13th god. Question. Where would the 'other half' be represented? {'feminine' aspect?}. Clue. Recall Homers epics - what story did they tell? Enlarged elsewhere. Pleiades/Hyades?

Off 'center'?

Analogy from a different perspective {i.e., different author{s} from a different time period} but the principle = the same?... "The question that Coomaraswamy set himself was stated on the first page of his transcript: 'The fundamental question to be asked will be at what is the {Sagittarian} archer shooting?' When i read this knowing the Sagittarian archer points his arrow right at the Galactic Center, i could scarcely believe what Coomaraswamy had written. The same paragraph emphasizes, however, that whatever astronomical references may be present, the mythological {or metaphysical} meaning is what will be of interest. In other words, Coomaraswamy intended to explore the metaphysical process of 'transcendence' as it relates to the mythology of Sagittarius rather than belabour any implied or demonstrated astronomical features." ['Galactic Alignment' / J. Jenkins].

Egyptian link = ‘Field of arrows’. [ Chasing mummies program ]...Link to [C]. Mr Sitchin calls the same "land of missiles". [see below ].

Symbolic of that inner ’combat’. For a comparison of the same but from two different ‘view points’ and its possible relevance within that overall framework. ‘Temple of/in man’. By R. Schwaller De Lubicz... and ’Zen in the art of Archery’. By E. Herrigel.

Use that process {above} to define ''objectiveness'' and its purpose {and representation?} within subject material: i.e., as ONE example: "This would be to our great loss, for the symbolizing of the church points to a depth of art which has almost disappeared from our world. It points indeed to an 'esoteric art', an objective art, which is mentioned scarcely at all in our official histories of art, and is only remembered in a handful of occult texts largely unknown to historians." ['The Secret Zodiac'].

'Space' created to be objective: "Blue-lidded lady of the dawn, carrier of her fathers wisdom, let this old one rest in your arms." [Day seven: The Temple of Hathor at Denderah' from the book 'Invoking the Scribes of Ancient Egypt'].

A working example {something hinted at}: "Siptah had a shriveled leg. He was not on the Kings List. Perhaps they thought him to weak. He ruled for nearly seven years, dying around the time of his Heb-Sed Festival. Perhaps Queen Tawosret ruled in his place. I walked slowly beneath the gaze of Maat. Mine own arms outstretched like her wings as i try to feel the energy of this place. This place feels familiar. I crave to remember all that i have forgotten....The dry, sere landscape of rocks and sand lies in a small valley between the Theban Hills, dominated by the pyramid shaped mountain. Ancient Egyptians called Ta Dehent, indicating the top of the forehead or the third eye. Modern Egyptians have named it Al Qurn, the horn....Egypt is a kiln used in the process of becoming a cauldron of possibilities for all....We enter the tomb of Tawosret and Siptah, as one, in silence. The tomb had been destroyed in 1977 by rains {'floods'?} and now was restored.... At the entrance, we are greeted by Maat, her wings folded in prayer. As we descend the wooden plank stairs, we pass a processional of gods and goddesses on the right wall. The dead would have to name each god and give an account of their lives as they pass to the judgement hall....A large stone sarcophagus stands in the center of the room at the end of a ramp. We flash lights under the LID and see the night sky of the goddess Nut painted on the inside lid {songs/prayers}....Light returns. We turn and walk up the ramp beneath a stone archway past the gods to the light. In the blazing sun a piece of stone with the eye of Horus is found underfoot." [Pages 200-207 'Invoking the Scribes of Ancient Egypt'].

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

Follow the title of the book to 'see' Astrology/Astronomy in the esoteric {objective?} sense of the word.


An objective eye: "The word 'mystery', comes down from the greeks...It is linked to the Egyptian word 'mes' meaning birth. The mystery of Horus is the story of his birth as a lame child and his transformation into the heroic warrior who battles chaos and learns to reconcile opposition. ...The Greeks also have have resonances with the Edfu mystery plays in which the initiate must catch a pig and 'sacrifice' it.....Edfu is the spot where Horus has to confront the Sethian aspect of himself to regain order and balance"....And/or: "The energy that is associated with the temple Edfu resonates strongly in my second chakra." Page 101/2 'Invoking the Scribes of Ancient Egypt'].

A {working?} example: "Do such works of objective art {'Lohan'?} exist at the present day,'' i asked. ''Of course they exist,'' answered G. ''The great Sphinx of Egypt is such a work of art, as well as some historically known works of architecture, certain statues of gods, and many other things. There are certain figures of gods and various mythological beings that can be read like books, only not with the mind but with the emotions, provided they are sufficiently developed...At all events, we grasped the meaning of what they wanted to convey to us across thousands of years, and not only the meaning, but all the feelings and the emotions connected with it as well. That indeed was art." ['In Search of the Miraculous']. Try ''Sphinx''.

Side note: For centuries Turquoise has been recognized as possessing the power to protect riders from injury due to falls. First used as amulets by Turkish soldiers, on their persons and attached to their bridles and trappings, it later came to be used for protection against falls of any kind. [Kunz, 109] Turquoise is also reputed to be influenced by the physical condition of the person who wears it. It is thought to grow pale when its owner is sick or sad, lose all color when the person dies, and gradually recover its color when transferred to a new healthy owner, its color deepening each day.

"The phrase “hot on the heels” means in close pursuit of someone or something, or immediately after some event1. It originates from hunting terminology, where the “on the heels” part refers to a hunter’s literal closeness behind their quarry.” Cain and Able?

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

Tibetan Turquoise, or Chinese Turquoise, is green and carries a slightly different vibration than the more vivid blue.  It is especially useful for clearing the Throat Chakra, and blockages of suppressed self-expression.



Continued: {One} example: Oedipus and the riddle of the Sphinx {Thebes} - in relation to the Sphinx of Giza. {One} relates more to Male {androgynous} the other 'female'. {One} to spirit, the other soul. {One} to anima the other animus. Which and why? ['Mythology' {The Royal House of Thebes} / Edith Hamilton].

"What creature'', the Sphinx asked him, ''goes on four feet in the morning, on two at noonday, on three in the evening?''

Question. Where would the 'zenith' of something be represented in landscape symbolism?

"De Lubicz's work was interdisciplinary, and well grounded in the knowledge of ancient traditions. Like a cryptologist, he recognized that elements of the Sacred Science have always been with us, but as is typical of the modern mind, we have classified them in Aristotelian categories - as history, science, mythology, and occultism. Though the study of each is a dead end for understanding the great achievements of Egyptian civilization, when taken together they present a compelling picture of human {'man' / woman} potential." [Chapter one, 'The Sacred Tradition of Ancient Egypt'. Italics/parenthesis, this readfers]. Try ''gather''.

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

"For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened." New Testament.

"Astrology is the progenitor of astronomy, and for many years the two existed as one science. Nowadays astronomy is considered an ''objective'' science of distances, masses,, speeds, etc., while Astrology is a "subjective" and intuitive science which not only deals with the astronomical delineation of horoscopes, but can also be called a philosophy which helps to explain the spiritual essence of life." [Extract taken from the book by Cicero]. Think about it in relation to the word 'synchronicity' relation to a 'framework'. i.e.,

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

"Astrology is a form of imagination emerging from nature and having direct relevance for everyday life. It is an applied poetics, a vision of life on earth stimulated by movements in the heavens {'Royal Way'?}, which can take us into areas of self reflection as no other system of symbols and images can {Homers Illiad?}...Learning astrology is very similar to embarking on an apprenticeship. Astrology is a practical craft which cannot be mastered 'with the head' only. We each need to find our own unique relationship to astrology and our hard work is repaid when we find ourselves tapping into the living astrological tradition {'mindset'?} - at which point the subject, and each chart we study, begins to come alive for us..." [Intro. to the book 'Mapping the Psyche' / C. Martin].

''Mindset'' = Anthropology ?

"There are in reality two branches of Astrology. The first is Exoteric Astrology which includes the mathematics of the art involved with charting a horoscope and the predictive arts. The second is Esoteric Astrology which deals with mysteries of the universe itself, the spiritual, moral, intellectual and physical dynamics of the cosmos. Esoteric Astrology reveals the universal pattern ['net' symbolism] of living, and the means by which human beings can align themselves with the spiritual fabric and 'pattern' of the universe. It is a system for understanding celestial energies and a method for viewing the universe as a symmetrical whole." [Same book].

''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].

And/or..."Astrological determinism was immensely popular in the ancient world. Gnostic's were however, at pains to emphasize that the stars are not the cause of events here on earth, but rather archetypal patterns in the heavens which correspond to events on earth, and so help us to understand the ebb and flow of fate. The Christian gnostic Theodotus writes that the stars 'are not the cause of things, but a sign of what is taking place'. " [From the book by T. Freke and P. Gandy]. Try ''archetypal''.

Tidal / non-tidal?

'The Secret Zodiac: The Hidden Art in Mediaeval Astrology' by Fred Gettings.

"The joy of good conscious is the accord between the moral rhythms of the 'lower' and 'higher' self. The beatitude [Matthew v,8] promising those who have a pure heart that they will 'see' god - signifies the accordance of their basic rhythm with the 'divine' rhythm. Joy is therefore the state of harmony of the inner/outer rhythms - of rhythm below with that of above..." [Extract from the book by Tomberg]. Together with...

''The Birth of the New Man.'' 'Egg/Incarnation' to enlarge

"Because each of the constellations of the zodiac spends 6 months of the year below the horizon and 6 months above it, the zodiac was also seen as representing the wheel of reincarnation, which carries each individual through a recurring cycle of life and 'death'. " [From the book by T. Freke and P. Gandy].

'Horus; in/of the horizon' ?

Good or bad?

A practical example: ''Sometimes people are mean to me or stuff goes wrong. Then i get mad. When i get annoyed i go into a different version of me. In my bad version, it's like me wanting to be horrible, but in the good version of me, i want to take away the bad version - but the bad version keeps fighting back.'' [Kai / 'Dispatches: Growing Up Poor: Britain's Hidden Homeless Kids' / Channel 4 / 25.10.21].

Astronomical equivalent {the very first representation?}: "The path of Jupiter never strays far from the ecliptic, and Homer faced a challenge when he had to express Athene's affection for or assistance to the warriors Achilles, Odysseus and Diomedes, whose personal stars lie at a good distance outside the zodiac. In the case of Achilles {Canis Major}, Homer says, that Athene supports him 'from afar', or that of the others 'that no man could see her'.{Therefore not within ''a line of sight''?}. When she 'moves up close' to Odysseus {Bootes}, Jupiter lies in the zodiac below his feet.

The tail end of the ''stinger'' = two swimming ducks.

In another instance Athene needs to move into the zodiac south of Perseus, whose feet only just reach into the zodiac, so she can hear Diomedes prayers. HOWEVER, Athene, has no difficulty when involved in the affairs of warriors whose stars and constellations lie IN the zodiac. As Jupiter travels through the broad shouldered and long legged constellation of Scorpius, Athene's infusion of fighting spirit into Menelaus is described with the well known simile of the fly: ' Therefore she put strength into his knees and shoulders and made him as bold as a fly, which, though driven off will yet come again and bite if it can'. On other occasions she assumes the voice or form of a mortal when Jupiter 'occults' or temporarily covers a star." {'Homer's Secret Iliad'].


Hunter or hunted?

From a different perspective: ''The first time the spear pierced Ysbaddaden through the ball of his knee and he cries: 'Like the sting of a gadfly the poisoned iron has pained me.' The second time it pierced in the middle of his breast: 'Like the bite of a big-headed leech the iron has pained me'....The 3rd time Culhwch himself hurled it back...pierced through the ball of the eye: 'Like the bite of a mad dog'....the kind of animal used later to hunt the terrible boar.'' [Page 62 'A Celtic Quest' / J. Layard].

'Ysbaddaden' = giant/hawthorn links.

Question. What do 'shoulders' and 'knees' represent?

''A gadfly is a person who interferes with the status quo of a society or community by posing novel, potentially upsetting questions, usually directed at authorities. The term is originally associated with the ancient Greek philosopher Socrates in his defense when on trial for his life...Also a fly that bites livestock, especially a horse fly, a warble fly, or bot fly.''

When the north wind blows. Heading south? East and west spear pointers?


And/or: ''Housman offered a secondary test of true poetry: 'everything that reminds me of her goes through me like a spear' {''Tip/wounded'' link?}. This is equally pertinent to the Theme.....The THEME, briefly, is the antique story, which falls into thirteen chapters and an epilogue of the birth, life, death and resurrection of the God of the Waxing year; the central chapters concern the gods losing battle with the god of the Waning year for 'love' of the capricious and all powerful Threefold Goddess {soul}….The poet identifies himself {spirit} with the god of the Waxing year and his Muse {'anima'} with the Goddess; the rival is his blood brother {'shadow'}, his other self, his weird....''  [Page 24 'The White Goddess' / R. Graves].

And/or: ''And thus it was, the fourth age of Middle Earth began. And the Fellowship of the Ring, though eternally bound by friendship and love was ended. Thirteen months to the day, since Gandalf sent us on our LONG journey - we found ourselves looking upon a familiar sight. We were home.'' ['The lord of the Rings: Return of the King'].

Neville Longbottom.

Belonging to the ''Sons of'' Ramses. The largest in the valley.

'light oxen':   "A marsh is — according to ecological definitions — a wetland that is dominated by herbaceous rather than woody plant species."

A working example: ''In the sandstone relief at Abydos of the Temple of Ramses II - the Nile god Hapi appears as a long haired hermaphrodite...bent down on one knee, holding in his hands  the flowering lotus and papyrus...Who floods the fields to nourish all those who thirst....They seem to say that when the waters of the unconscious rise toward the realm of consciousness {wet/dry'?}, then we have come to our time of renewal...Dawn always begins in the BONES.....The search for higher ground {'twentythree'?} may be metaphoric for the search of a higher spirituality.'' [Pages 124-130 'Dreams of Isis' / N. Ellis].

'Mountains low. Valleys high'.

Karnac to Gebel el Silsila.

Which is more or less - ego?

A working {practical} example: "We always hope for the best - and of course we should to a certain extent - but we should also {counterbalance} prepare ourselves for the worst. And that is the realistic approach. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst which allows that balance of mind to emerge {in the moment}. Because we then start to accept that we cant have total control over everything. That is the beginning of wisdom.  To be able to embrace happiness and suffering in one taste. Not just having happiness and avoiding suffering. Which is what ones personal ego would say." ['Beyond Philosophy: What is Samsara' / Mirthy].

Side note: ''Mark adds that at the time of his writing, " worship of St John the Baptist, men stay up at night and make three kinds of fires: one is of clean bones and no wood and is called a "bonnefyre"; another is of clean wood and no bones, and is called a wakefyre, because men stay awake by it all night; and the third is made of both bones and wood and is called, "St. John's fire" (Festial 182)." These traditions largely ended after the Reformation, but persisted in rural areas up until the 19th century before petering out.[61]

And/or: ''The 13th-century monk of Winchcomb, Gloucestershire, who compiled a book of sermons for Christian feast days, recorded how St. John's Eve was celebrated in his time:

Eternal 'Triangle'?

Aconitum napellus, monkshood,[2] aconite, Venus' chariot or wolfsbane, is a species of highly toxic flowering plants in the genus Aconitum of the family Ranunculaceae, native and endemic to western and central Europe. It is an herbaceous perennial plant growing to 1 m (3 ft 3 in) tall, with hairless stems and leaves. The leaves are rounded, 5–10 cm (2.0–3.9 in) diameter, palmately divided into five to seven deeply lobed segments. The flowers are dark purple to bluish-purple, narrow oblong helmet-shaped, 1–2 cm (0.39–0.79 in) tall. Plants native to Asia and North America formerly listed as A. napellus are now regarded as separate species. The plant is extremely poisonous in both ingestion and body contact.

Let us speak of the revels which are accustomed to be made on St. John's Eve, of which there are three kinds. On St. John's Eve in certain regions the boys collect bones and certain other rubbish, and burn them, and therefrom a smoke is produced on the air. They also make brands and go about the fields with the brands. Thirdly, the wheel which they roll.[19]

Saint John's Fires, explained the monk of Winchcombe, were to drive away dragons, which were abroad on St. John's Eve, poisoning springs and wells. The wheel that was rolled downhill he gave its explanation: "The wheel is rolled to signify that the sun then rises to the highest point of its circle and at once turns back; thence it comes that the wheel is rolled."[20]

''In Austria, the Midsummer solstice is celebrated each year with a procession of ships down the Danube River as it flows through the wine-growing Wachau Valley north of Vienna. Up to 30 ships sail down the river in line as fireworks erupt from the banks and hill tops while bonfires blaze and the vineyards are lit up. Lighted castle ruins also erupt with fireworks during the 90-minute cruise downstream.''

Side note: "Banjo enclosures are, perhaps, one of the most distinctive types of enclosure known in the British landscape. They are relatively small in area, predominantly sub-circular in outline and are notably furnished with a single, markedly elongated, entrance passageway; this funnelled approach giving the ground plan the appearance of a banjo or frying pan. They were first categorised in Wessex and appear to concentrate in discrete clusters in some areas of Hampshire, Dorset, and Wiltshire. More recently, a number have been recorded in the upper Thames Valley and the Cotswolds in Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire. Away from these foci, banjo enclosures occur less frequently with isolated examples scattered across southern and
central England and across west Wales. They are often confused with other classes of enclosures, particularly small examples of roughly round or square plan with antennae ditches
extending from their entranceways, but these lack the lengthened entrance passageway apparent in banjos.....

Very few banjo enclosures survive in earthwork form; the majority are known from aerial photography and can be seen as crop- or soilmarks. They are usually found on hill slopes,
valley sides or at the heads of now dry valleys and occur as isolated sites, as pairs, and occasionally in larger groups – banjo landscapes. The results of fieldwork at sites in Wiltshire and Dorset suggest that those individual enclosures grouped in multiple arrangements were contemporary with each other. Often, particularly so in examples with irregularly shaped enclosure boundaries, the passageway and ‘front’ of the enclosure are better defined than the remainder of the circuit, illustrating a concern with the main approach to the enclosure and a desire, perhaps, to create a more impressive and monumental façade.....Circular hand hewn storage pits - cut into the chalk - are frequently found."

'Line of Sight' as a means.....?

And/or: ''Saint John's Day, the feast day of Saint John the Baptist, was established by the undivided Christian Church in the 4th century AD, in honour of the birth of the Saint John the Baptist, which the Gospel of Luke records as being six months before Jesus.[13][14] As the Western Christian Churches mark the birth of Jesus on December 25, Christmas, the Feast of Saint John (Saint John's Day) was established at midsummer, exactly six months before the former feast....By the sixth century, this solar cycle was completed by balancing Christ's conception and birth against the conception and birth of his cousin, John the Baptist. Such a relationship between Christ and his cousin was amply justified by the imagery of scripture. The Baptist was conceived six months before Christ (Luke 1:76); he was not himself the light, but was to give testimony concerning the light (John 1:8–9). Thus John's conception was celebrated on the eighth kalends of October (24 September: near the autumn equinox) and his birth on the eighth kalends of July (24 June: near the Summer solstice). If Christ's conception and birth took place on the 'growing days', it was fitting that John the Baptist's should take place on the 'lessening days' ('diebus decrescentibus'), for the Baptist himself had proclaimed that 'he must increase; but I must decrease' (John 3:30). By the late sixth century, the Nativity of John the Baptist (24 June) had become an important feast, counterbalancing at midsummer the midwinter feast of Christmas.

64 objective aspects. Good or bad?

Silbury Hill: 'Truncated'?

Within Christian theology, this carries significance as John the Baptist "was understood to be preparing the way for Jesus", with John 3:30 stating "He must increase, but I must decrease"; this is symbolized in the fact that the "sun begins to diminish at the summer solstice and eventually increases at the winter solstice."

ONE working example {in the spiritual sense of the word}: ''Of all the gopis, Radhika, or Radha, because of her intense love for Krishna, was the closest to him. She manifested mahabhava and was united with her Beloved. This union represents, through sensuous language, a super sensuous experience...The Vaishnava scriptures advise one to propitiate Radha and obtain her grace {anima link} in order to realize 'Sri Krishna'. So the tortured devotee now turned his prayer to her. Within a short time he enjoyed her blessed vision. He saw and felt the figure of Radha disappearing into his own body....Her complexion was light yellow. Now one with Radha, he manifested the great estatic love, the mahabhava, which had found in her its fullest expression. Later Sri Ramakrishna said: 'The manifestation in the same individual of the NINETEEN different kinds of emotion for god is called in the books of bhakti, mahabhava. An ordinary man takes a whole lifetime to express even a single one of these.'' [Page 24/5 'The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna'].

However, this interpretation is questionable as it relies on the self-presentation texts of two Egyptian soldiers, Ahmose Pennekhbet and Amenemhab Mahu, and yet examples of golden flies have been found in the burials of women and children, who were not normally associated with military activity in ancient Egypt. Furthermore, considering golden flies as symbols of persistence may reflect a modern outlook, in which flies are considered to be annoying pests, and the Egyptians may not have held the same perspective.''

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 & Friedman, 2007: pp. 7-9).

Priests of Anubis, the guide of the dead and the god of tombs and embalming, perform the opening of the mouth ritual. Extract from the Papyrus of Hunefer, a 19th-Dynasty Book of the Dead (c.1300 BCE)

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

The opening of the mouth ceremony (or ritual) was an ancient Egyptian ritual described in funerary texts such as the Pyramid Texts. From the Old Kingdom to the Roman Period, there is ample evidence of this ceremony, which was believed to give the deceased their fundamental senses to carry out tasks in the afterlife. Various practices were conducted on the corpse, including the use of specific instruments to touch body parts like the mouth and eyes. These customs were often linked with childbirth, which denoted rebirth and new beginnings. For instance, cutting bloody meat from animals as offerings for the deceased signified the birthing process, which typically involves blood, and represented the commencement of a new life. Additionally, tools like the peseshkef, which resembled the tail of a fish and were originally employed for cutting infants' umbilical cords, further emphasized the idea of "rebirth"

N.B. The soldier himself talks about the above: an account of his life - ''from beyond the grave in the first person singular'' - who served Ahmose the king of Upper/Lower Egypt from: ''Aboard the ship called the wild bull.'' ['Legends of the Pharaohs' / S2 EP1].

''The tongue of the Welsh dragon is the symbol of the Welsh Language Society.''

Because of the highly specialized nature of consciousness, its exaggerated independence and self-satisfaction and the guilt sense resulting therefrom, a barrier is erected in the psyche of modern man between the several levels of consciousness. The treatise calls this barrier set up by persistent repression, “the shadow and impurity by which the clouds hang over it, defile and keep away the light”. In fact, it is common evidence that many neurotics, feeling themselves cut off from their roots and thus from the vibrant stream of life about them, imagine that actually clouds do hang over them, darkening their lives. Freud calls this overshadowing cloud of self-criticism and recrimination the Super-ego. It prevents a free and adequate contact with people and things, dulls the brain, inhibiting the easy flow of life and light, the libido, from welling up from the Unconscious.

'Snake/Dragon head' on land. 'tail' in the sea.

The ray is, I take it, the light itself shining over and into consciousness after the latter has been separated from or has deliberately absorbed (accepted) its shadow.....IT is first something was a certain kind of  cloud or darkness, which was condensed in-to water, and this water is that one thing in which all things were contained. But my question is: What was that nothing out of which the first cloudy chaos or something was made? Canst thou tell me? It may be thou dost think it is a mere nothing. It is indeed nihil quo ad nos - nothing that we perfectly know. It is nothing, as Dionysius saith: it is nothing that was created or of those things that are and nothing of that which thou dost call nothing-that is, of those things that are not, in thy empty, destructive sense....

Above or below?

But I have done. I will now speak something of generation and the ways of it, that the process of the philosophers upon this matter may be the better understood. You must know that Nature hath two extremes and between them a middle substance, which elsewhere we have called the middle nature. Example enough we have in the creation. The first extreme was that cloud or darkness whereof we have spoken formerly. Some call it the remote matter and the invisible chaos, but very improperly, for it was not invisible. This is the Jewish A in Soph outwardly, and it is the same with that Orphic night. ['The Philosophers Stone' / I. Regardie].


And/or: ''Daily the clouds increase. Wafts of deadly vapour rise up from our sea and grow denser, like a preamble to some mighty deluge....I neglected my duties today {synchronistic?}.

The cramped, stiffling village straggled along the valley below. Its inward looking inhabitants {Easter Island?} were too busy keeping an eye on each other to notice me sailing along like a cloud high above them!.... The goal of solution is only this: to divide that which is Above to that which is Below...That begins the process of seperation - which is the divorce of mercury and sulphur - soul and body of our matter. We call it the slaying of the dragon {spirit?}...'' [Page 75 'Mercurius'].

Cloud People?

The cloud of witnesses is a biblical phrase that refers to the multitude of faithful people who have gone before us and set an example of obedience to God12. The phrase comes from Hebrews 12:1, where the author urges the readers to run the race of faith with perseverance, looking to Jesus as the author and finisher of our faith. The cloud of witnesses is meant to inspire and encourage us to follow God in our own lives.

And/or: Treasure belonging to Attila the Hun found in a 'forest' 10 miles outside the boundaries of Rome. Taken from conquests east-west. Over 100 pieces . Includes 'bowls' studded with gems; 'leaf' shaped brooches covered in gold and ''silver plated frames and clasps which when put together form a silver folding chair''. [Blowing Up History: Wrath of Attila the Hun].

'Bowls' in relation to Crescent?

''According to legend, Attila died of a nose bleed.'' ['The Chase' / 2018].

''In 453AD Attila died on his wedding night: His bride found him dead. Frightened of being accused of murdering him, she slept by his corpse all night. A 6th century historian reported: 'He fell not by rude or foe nor treachory but by joy and without pain'....'' ['Rome: Rise and Fall of an Empire' / S1 EP13].

''Ildico (fl. AD 453) was the last wife of the Hunnic ruler Attila. Her name is probably Germanic, a diminutive form of the noun *hildaz ("battle"),[1] a common element in Germanic female names (e.g. Svanhildr, Brynhildr and Gunnhildr), and Hildr ("battle") was the name of a Valkyrie. Her name is thus reconstructed as *Hildiko ("little Hildr"), and it is probably preserved in *Grímhild or *Krēmhild, the name of Ildico's later legendary version.[2]

Happy or Sad?

According to Priscus, Attila died after the feast celebrating their marriage in 453 AD, in which he suffered a severe nosebleed and choked to death in a stupor:

"Shortly before he died, as the historian Priscus relates, he took in marriage a very beautiful girl named Ildico, after countless other wives, as was the custom of his race. He had given himself up to excessive joy at his wedding, and as he lay on his back, heavy with wine and sleep, a rush of superfluous blood, which would ordinarily have flowed from his nose, streamed in deadly course down his throat and killed him, since it was hindered in the usual passages. Thus did drunkenness put a disgraceful end to a king renowned in war. On the following day, when a great part of the morning was spent, the royal attendants suspected some ill and, after a great uproar, broke in the doors. There they found the death of Attila accomplished by an effusion of blood, without any wound, and the girl with downcast face weeping beneath her veil."[3]

In Germanic heroic legends, she corresponds to Guðrún/Kriemhild, and in the Norse versions she deliberately killed Attila, in revenge for the death of her kinsmen.''

Side note: In central Germany archaeologists unearth an iron folding chair dating to 600AD - placed at ''the foot of a deceased woman.'' Also found in the grave: ''necklace made of glass beads and a belt with dangling beads and brooches.'' Only a few dozen similar ancient ''folding chairs'' have been found throughout Europe - ''mostly in early medieval women's burials....During the Middle Ages, folding chairs were used as the official insignia of Bishops, and also for representing royalty.'' [Page 10 'Archaeology' / Nov/Dec / 2022].


And/or: ''In 1904 Viking Longship unearthed in Norway {Oseberg ship}. Preserved because of the local STREAM had kept the surrounding BLUE clay that surround it 'wet'. Among the goods included 2 cows 15 horses and 6 dogs {i.e., 'twentythree' in total}. Weaving/sowing tools found + Quartz stone + 6 beds and 1 chair and cart. They all belonged to TWO women.'' ['Raiders of the Lost Past: The Viking Ship' / BBC4].

Question. What belongs to 'spirit'. What belongs to 'soul' ?

N.B. Quartz is made from fire and water.

And/or: ''The back of the cart is decorated with cats, bringing to mind the cats that drew the cart of Frøya, the goddess of fertility. The front end of the cart shows a man lying on his back, being attacked by serpents. Could this be an illustration of the tale of Gunnar in the snake pit? These were familiar stories for the Vikings, and the symbolism of the carving may have had great significance that is largely unknown today.''

Get into that universal mind set to 'see' the ''unknown''.

The Wain?

Sad {'melancholy'} or joyous?

Side note: ''Stream that kept it all wet'' in relation to: ''When the waters come in, they awaken the bodies and the spirits, which are imprisoned and powerless.....Gradually they bestir themselves, rise up, and clothe themselves in bright colours, glorious as the flowers in spring. The spring is glad and rejoices in the blossoming ripeness they have put on.'' [Page 154 'Alchemical Studies'].

'Three' sections?

N.B. Many upturned vases found throughout archaeology.

Continued: The narrator Simon Armitage asks the same question. Wonders how Odysseus can stay on this 'island' for a whole year {year and a day?} - while most of his 'men' are suffering {turned into 'pigs' etc.}: ''Odysseus behaviour is questionable to say the least. Has he forgotten his wife, the loyal Penelope, who's waiting for him back home? Or is he just recuperating after getting hopelessly lost, and watching most of his men die in agony? It all reminds me of a story about George Best...." ['Gods and Monsters': Homers Odyssey].

nhy (2)Transition between higher/lower? First '10' years that struggle of lower fighting {coming to terms?} with higher due to 'feminine' aspect {Helen} illegally {'sin'?} taken. THEREFORE a weak {'fall' link} aspect of the 'higher' {Paris}. Lower combines to 'challenge' higher. Lower eventually wins {'wooden' horse , i.e., by 'cunning' not by what the REAL 'horse' REPRESENTS}. 'Lower' now has to come to terms with a new ''state of BEING' while returning to its normal SOURCE. Hence a ''transition'' FROM lower to a now possible 'higher' state of conscious awareness. Both in the Micro {individual} and Macro sense of the word {represented with ''Precession''}. First 10 years more to do with spirit/shadow/ego. Remaining years = Spirit {male} coming to terms with soul {female} i.e. in the anima sense of the word. Hence the 'feminine' aspect more prevalent in the 'return' than the other {i.e.,Circe, Sirens, Calypso etc}. PRIORITIES CHANGING. A transition; a coming together; an awareness and understanding {of archetypes?} between 'worlds', i.e., ''pigs'' - recall what they REPRESENT in relation to the day to day stuff. The ongoing stuff. That transition ongoing towards ''home'' where a new beginning awaits. IF SUCCESSFUL. Odysseus is the only one who returns simply because all his 'lower' aspects have been overcome. A new man returns? {DEATH/REBIRTH?}. From a lower to a now higher learning curve {''arc''?} - of BEING?

Side note: Djedefre = the first to use ''Son of''.

Spirit and soul now blended - becoming balanced. That ''once upon a time'' GIANT {external?} has {'changed'? therefore ''Circe'' link} into something more balanced - INTERNALLY. Spirit/soul. 'see' it? If you do then you have a better appraisal of such quotes as: " There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the 'sons' of God came in unto the 'daughters' of men, and they bare 'children' to them..." [Genesis 6:4].

Above or below the 'clouds'?

Witches hat or Hennin? Worn by 'royalty'.

Something extra: ''Whereas the 'witch' {i.e., female aspect in the 'negative' sense of the word} was slaughtered in a cave - the giants head {i.e., Ysbaddaden AFTER beard was shaved} - was exposed upon a mound.....It MAY be that the mound symbolizes the breast, with Ysbaddaden's head on its stake representing the 'bad nipple'....'' [ Page 198 'A Celtic Quest' ' J. Layard}.

The author {for this reader} complicates everything with his 'sexual' analysis throughout. Freud did the same with his single short-sighted obsession. A closer to the ''mark'' analysis to get within that mind set would be found within 'Jack and the Beanstalk'.

Question. A goatee beard?

From a different perspective: ''In an episode known as the temptation of Saint Antony....he was granted a vision of the 'devil' - a tall black man with his head in the clouds. He also 'saw' angels who were able to guide some human spirits up, beyond the devils reach.'' [Page 329 'The Secret History of the World' / J. Black].

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


And/or: ''The curbing of desire brings us back to that odd phrase {'peculiar'?} of Ysbaddaden Pencawr's: 'I must needs dress my beard for me to be shaved. It will never settle unless the blood of the Black Witch be obtained, daughter of the White Witch {'duality' link} - from the Head of the Valley of Grief in the Uplands of Hell.'' [Page 195/6 'A Celtic Quest'].

Higher of the 'lower'?

Mountains low. Valleys high?

What would the next stage {cycle?} be REPRESENTED with?

"The 'good life' is a process. The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination. The good life constitutes a direction selected by the total organism, when there is psychological freedom to move in ANY direction." [Taken from Part three, 'on matters of existence' from the book, 'Striking Thoughts' { Bruce Lee's Wisdom for Daily Living} by J.Little]. And...

"I will present the psychological aspect of the tradition, particular Jungian thinking, and show how it relates to alchemy and, perhaps more importantly initiation - the later a relationship that has not been touched upon by other authors..." [Extract from the book 'The Magister' ].

This web page has ''touched'' on the above - throughout, i.e., try ''teacher'' in relation to higher/lower.

''Duc in Altum, built in 2014 to commemorate the PUBLIC life of Jesus and the dignity of women. The main ALTAR abstractly replicates a 1st century fishing boat in the ancient harbour.'' Question. Wind in the sails? And/or: ''After the 'miracle' of the multiplication of the SEVEN loaves of bread, Jesus gets into a boat and comes to the region of Magdala named Dalmanoutha. The name and place are disputed, being either Magdala or an area NORTH of same...Magdala = Migdal meaning 'tower'....'' [Page 30-32 'Mary Magdalene'  / J. Ristine].

"It was at this moment that he dreamed a dream of the greatest importance to him . He dreamed that, instead of sitting in his study and talking to the great doctors and psychologists who used to call on him from all over the world, he was standing in a public place and addressing a multitude of people who were listening and understanding what he said."

Or put simply as Mr Jung himself was requested to as explained in the introduction to his final book 'Man and His Symbols' from where the above quote was taken - {ten days after completion - he died] - CONSIDER those symbols {archetypes?} - with that universal framework in mind - RELATIVE to the 'Self' to understand the Micro within the Macro, i.e., you cant have one without the other - but one has to come before the other. See it? If you do, then one could say - the beginning of an initiation?

Secondary OVER primary?

'Second to none' or 'second childhood' as a means....?

And/or: ''Or maybe its the memory of what we all have stored within us from the start. After all, a myth is something that never was but is always happening. And the fact that  so many of these early myths and scriptures tells us much about the same story about our potentials shows not just where we may have been but also what is coded within us - A SECOND NATURE, that is so much greater than our usual one.'' [Page 34 'A Mythic Life'].

The word ’middle’. One of those archetypal key words . Orions belt around his ‘middle’, i.e., ‘Navel’ symbolism. [ ‘midriff ’ of the human form ]. No better explained than the Sumerian equivalent in Zecharia Sitchin. '12th planet'. His research on the Sumerian aspect is second to none even though his final interpretation is an incorrect one. Simply because he has no idea of the esoteric side. As already indicated. Some are aware...others are not. All those key words however are present. Words like...’Divine, Stone, Cross,[explained elsewhere] / Goggle eyed, [ Link to gog/magog. Explained elsewhere]. ’Chariot / Navel / Dragon:serpent / Throne / Especially ‘House’ symbolism, i.e., in relation to exterior/interior. And 'Whirlwind / benben’ / and twelve’, [ to name but a few. ] Hence the link to the title of the book. All specifically implied to mean something different other than the ‘obvious’, i.e.......

'Sat on' Spirit or soul ? Enthroned?

"Zeus ,too, as we have shown, battled not a 'dragon' but a serpent-god. As we shall show later on, there was a deep meaning attached to these ancient traditions of a struggle between a god of winds and a serpent deity. Here, however, we can only stress that battles among the gods for the divine Kingship were reported in the ancient texts as events that had unquestionably taken place".[page 67, same book]. Indeed they did, but only in that 'inner' sense. Recall the symbolism of dragon and serpent, relative to; as in this example; what the word 'Zeus' is a representation of.

"And in the alternation of the night and the day, and in what Allah sends down in sustenance from the sky, and revives therewith the earth after its death, and in the change of the winds...are signs for those that are wise." [Quran 45:5. Translation from Abdullah Yusuf Ali].


The phrase “hot on the heels” means in close pursuit of someone or something, or immediately after some event. It originates from hunting terminology, where the “on the heels” part refers to a hunter’s literal closeness behind their quarry.

A Talmudic states The storm wind hangs between the arms of god like an amulet : The 'hanging' is, of course, the Teli. The storm wind is the slowly backward-turning spiral of precession and a good metaphor for the mystical experience itself. The prophet Nahum (1:3) declares, “His way is in the whirlwind,” and Psalms 50:3 agrees that to experience God is to plunge into the tempest that surrounds Him. The arms of the universe are the unmoving Teli, the ecliptic and galactic axes, from which the initiatory spiral of the equinoxes is suspended like an amulet. It is hard to overestimate the value of the knowledge of one’s location in space and in time that these three axes provided. It would also seem as if these axes were creating an address for Earth, the purpose of which remains a mystery. In verse 106 of the Bahir we read that the Teli is nothing but “the likeness before the Blessed Holy One,” or the face of God.'® Verse 96 of the Bahir addresses key alchemical symbols, and may in fact be our earliest mention of the philosopher’s stone. It begins: “What is the earth from which the heavens were graven [created]? It is the throne of the Blessed Holy One. It is the Precious Stone and the Sea of Wisdom.”!” The verse continues to suggest the spiritual value of the color blue, the traditional color of kingship in ancient cultures, by associating the sea with the sky and the sky with the higher light coming from the Throne of Creation......

Inner/outer. A beginning or end?

Fulcanelli goes further, however, by emphasizing the word sabot as a spinning top, the Hebrew dreidel.....

Amenhotep III fascination with the colour blue - began in the newest city of the Dazzling Aten.

This spinning refers to the whirlwind of the mystical experience, and the spinning of the celestial mill as the movement of the sky grinds out time. As we saw in chapter 4, this concept is an important one in the Bahir. Fulcanelli’s insistence on connecting these metaphors with the Feast of the Epiphany forces us to consider the significance of that moment in time. Is there an astronomical and eschatological clue here as well? ['The Mysteries of the Cross of Hendaye'].

Side note: ''Totnes (/ˈtɒtnɪs/ TOT-niss or /tɒtˈnɛs/ tot-NESS) is a market town and civil parish at the head of the estuary of the River Dart in Devon, England, within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is about 5 miles (8.0 km) west of Paignton, about 7 miles (11 km) west-southwest of Torquay and about 20 miles (32 km) east-northeast of Plymouth. It is the administrative centre of the South Hams District Council.

gog-magogTotnes has a long recorded history, dating back to 907, when its first castle was built. By the twelfth century it was already an important market town, and its former wealth and importance may be seen from the number of merchants' houses built in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries....According to the Historia Regum Britanniae written by Geoffrey of Monmouth in around 1136, "the coast of Totnes" was where Brutus of Troy, the mythical founder of Britain, first came ashore on the island.[8] Set into the pavement of Fore Street is the Brutus Stone, a small granite boulder[9][10] onto which, according to local legend, Brutus first stepped from his ship. As he did so, he was supposed to have declaimed: 'Here I stand and here I rest. And this town shall be called Totnes'.

'Crossroads' to enlarge.

The stone is far above the highest tides and the tradition is not likely to be of great antiquity, being first mentioned in John Prince's Worthies of Devon in 1697.[11] It is possible that the stone was originally the one from which the town crier, or bruiter called out his news; or it may be le Brodestone, a boundary stone mentioned in several 15th century disputes: its last-known position in 1471 was below the East Gate.....The Middle English prose Brut (c. 1419) places the fight between Brutus' general Corineus, and the British giant Gog magog "at Totttenes",[12] while Cornish antiquary Richard Carew suggested that the fight may have begun near the town, but ended at Plymouth Hoe.''

''The name Totnes (first recorded in AD 979) comes from the Old English personal name Totta and ness or headland. Before reclamation and development, the low-lying areas around this hill were largely marsh or tidal wetland, giving the hill much more the appearance of a "ness" than today....In recent times it has gained a reputation as a centre for learning, arts, alternative lifestyles and culture. A trip to Totnes is not complete without a visit to the Brutus Stone, which can be found in Fore Street, set into the pavement.''

Continued: "The lunar nodes are the points in the sky where the orbits of the sun and moon intersect, and they indicate the places where eclipses can occur...In Hindu astrology they are deified as the head and tail of a serpent-dragon and are called Rahu and Ketu, both of whom are involved in the Vedic Creation myth called the 'Churning of the Milky Ocean'. ['Galactic Alignment'. Mentioned elsewhere]. Try ''eclipse'' and ''churning'' relative to what ''milk'' represents - OUTSIDE of the obvious.

And/or: "Various Mystery Schools from Ancient Egypt onwards have maintained the tradition. The principle work of the Western Esoteric Tradition is expansion of consciousness. It deals with the ‘ground of all being’, unmanifest, beyond time and space, which differentiates countless nodes of being evolving through a manifest universe. The purpose of these nodes of being is to realise the Divine Intention, which as a play is an image in the mind of the playwright until the actors make it real in performance. It is for us to recognise and handle constructively what flows from this proposition. The Divine Intention is concerned with the true purpose and destiny of each one of us." ['The Society of the Inner Light'].

The fruit of ones labours.

Found on a church/synagogue floor in Jericho. LATE BC:  A vast amount of material exists in early psycho-analytical literature on the subject and significance of the Dragon. A great deal of this is well synthesized in The Psychology of the Unconscious by Jung. Briefly it may be said that the Dragon refers to the instincts, to undomesticated libido. We have already defined the libido not as sexual desire alone as the Freudians claim, but as the sum total of all psychic energy, the life force peculiar to any organism. Undomesticated libido would therefore represent that portion of psychic energy which has not yet been recognized and hence employed by consciousness. In consequence, it remains in a crude, undeveloped,, unutilized and undomesticated state. AND/OR: I am a poisonous dragon, present everywhere and to be had for nothing. My water and fire dissolve and compound. Out of my body thou shalt draw the Green and the Red Lion. AND/OR: Roast those things, therefore, and boil them in that which comes forth from the horse’s belly, for seven, fourteen, or twenty-one days. Then it becomes the Dragon eating his own wings and destroying himself; this being done, let it be put in a furnace, which lute diligently, and observe that none of the spirit may escape. And know that the periods of the earth are in the water which is bound until you put the bath upon it. [ 'The Philosophers Stone' / I. Regardie]. BLEMMYES to enlarge. Question. 3 or 4 toes? Or does it matter?

And/or: "Japanese dragons are often depicted with three toes on each foot, which distinguishes them from the four-toed dragons in Chinese mythology. This characteristic is a cultural variation and reflects the uniqueness of Japanese dragon iconography1In contrast, Chinese dragons most often have four toes on each foot2. The difference in toe count is one of the primary distinctions between Japanese and Chinese dragons. While Chinese mythology typically portrays dragons as benevolent creatures, Japanese myths sometimes depict them as destructive monsters, similar to European dragons2. So, if you encounter a dragon with three toes, it’s likely a Japanese one!"

Side note: ''In the Chinese Zodiac the year of the snake directly follows the year of the dragon.'' ['Impossible'].

And/or: There is no Year of the Lion in the Chinese Zodiac.''

A work in progress: "The matter being thus melted and burned, take the brain thereof and triturate it in most sharp vinegar till it become obscured. This done, it lives in the putrefaction; the dark clouds which were in it before it died in its own body will be changed. This process being repeated, as I have described; it dies again as I said, thence it lives....What would be the effect of this libido ascent upon consciousness? Our text tells us. The brain, clearly, is the conscious intellectual life of the spirit. Sharp vinegar must without doubt refer to the libido, the vital living spirit. This assumption is justified in my mind by a significant allusion in a highly mystical and devotional treatise. Here, the spirit is represented as speaking metaphorically to the ego, its persona, in these words: “Wolfs bane is not so sharp as steel; yet it pierceth the body more subtly. Even as evil kisses corrupt the blood, so do my words devour the spirit of man. I breathe, and there is infinite disease of the spirit. As an acid eats into steel, as a cancer that utterly corrupts the body; so am I unto the spirit of man. I shall not rest until I have dissolved it all.”.....It is in this manner that the Stone, which, according to Hermes, is the vine of the Wise, becomes their Wine, which, by the operations of Art, produces their rectified Water of life, and their most sharp Vinegar. The Elements of the Stone cannot be dissolved but by this Nature wholly Divine; nor can a perfect dissolution be made of it, but after a proportioned digestion and putrefaction, at which the operation of the Second Key of the First Work is ended....

The philosophers give it many names; for sometimes they call it wine, sometimes water of life, sometimes vinegar, sometimes oil, according to the different degrees of Preparation, or according to the diverse effects which it is capable of producing. .... Yet I let you know that it is properly called the Vinegar of the Wise, and that in the distillation of this Divine Liquor there happens the same thing as in that of common vinegar; you may hence draw instruction: the water and the phlegm ascend first; the oily substance, in which the efficacy of the water consists, comes the last, etc....The Lunaria is the White Mercury, the most sharp Vinegar is the Red Mercury; but the better to determine these two mercuries, feed them with flesh of their own species - the blood of innocents whose throats are cut; that is to say, the spirits of the bodies are the Bath where the Sun and Moon go to wash themselves....

Dissolved in this way, into what, for lack of other and better words, may be termed a homogeneous magnetic fluid, the Stone may well be called the Vine of the Wise. As these hermetic processes go forward, and the fluidic substance matures and develops in the right direction, it is known as the philosophical Wine. The Wine is extracted from the Vine - that is, the dissolved constituents of the entire personality which, because of this dissolution, evinces a possibility of further and new growth.

The Wine represents the same substance symbolized by the Vine, but on a higher plane. Because of the attention we have given to it, the wine we extract and develop from the grape vine is a higher development of the source from which it came. In that sense it is an evolution.


We could likewise suggest that the Unconscious is the Vine, and the libido, which issues from the hidden depths of the psyche, answers to the Wine of which Eudoxus so enigmatically speaks. So far as this alchemical Wine is concerned, as it continues to be subjected to the coction and influence of the fire, further development increases its virulence, so to speak, at which junction it is denominated as a most sharp Vinegar. It is an acid fluid continuing the process of disintegration yet further and in a more subtle way invading the entire mental and psychic sphere, as a preliminary to the reconstruction of the sphere of sensation on a better and diviner plan.....

The Mercury of the wise men is a watery element cold and moist. This is their Permanent Water, the spirit of the body, the unctuous vapour, the blessed water, the virtuous water, the water of the wise men, the philosopher's vinegar, the mineral water, the dew of heavenly grace, the virgin's milk, the bodily Mercury; and with other numberless names is it named in the books of the philosophers; which names truly - though they are divers notwithstanding - always signify one and the same thing, namely, the Mercury of the wise men. Out of this Mercury alone all the virtue of the Art is extracted and - according to its nature - the Tincture, both red and white.....

'Bathing' to enlarge.

But I had almost forgot to tell thee that which is all in all, and it is the greatest difficulty in all the art - namely, the fire. It is a close, airy, circular, bright fire: the philosophers call it their sun and the glass must stand in the shade. It makes not the Matter to vapour - no, not so much as to sweat. It digests only with a still, piercing, vital heat. It is continual and therefore at last alters the chaos and corrupts it. The proportion and regimen of it is very scrupulous, but the best rule to know it by is that of the Synod: ‘Let not the bird fly before the fowler.” Make it sit while you give fire, and then you are sure of your prey. For a close I must tell thee the philosophers call this fire their bath, but it is a bath of Nature, not an artificial one; for it is not any kind of water but a certain subtle, temperate moisture which compasseth the glass and feeds their sun or fire. In a word, without this bath nothing in the world is generated....

Eight strands each. Sixtyfour in total. A 'generation' thing?

Now, that thou mayst the better understand what degree of fire is requisite for the work, consider the generation of man, or any other creature whatsoever. It is not kitchen fire nor fever that works upon the sperm in the womb, but a most temperate, moist, natural heat which proceeds from the very life of the mother. It is just so here. Our Matter is a most delicate substance and tender, like the animal sperm, for it is almost a living thing. Nay, in very truth, it hath some small portion of life, for Nature doth produce some animals out of it. For this very reason the least violence destroys it and prevents all generation; for if it be overheated but for some few minutes the white and red sulphurs will never essentially unite and coagulate. On the contrary, if it takes cold but for half an hour - the work being once well begun - it will never sort to any good purpose....

Sheaths found.

Here are described the nature of the alchemists’ basic material and the divisions made upon it. The four substances of the verse refer to he four elements of Earth, Air, Water and Fire. “One to two” represent the automatic division of the homogenous magical Agent into its polarities of male and female, the two poles of positive and negative, active and passive, etc., the two opposites which pervade and characterize the whole of nature. These are the two extremes between which, in its unenlightened state, the ego constantly swings like a pendulum. It is this extreme which has to be overcome psychologically. [same].

Hence our text advises us what to do. A dissolution of the entire emotional and mental nature is to be achieved before we can proceed. The hovering vapour is to be removed from the Water, from the Philosopher's Mercury, which is the inner intelligence, before the latter can perceive life clearly and accurately. The blackness requires elimination from the oily tincture - the emotions must be cleansed and purified following a full-blooded acceptance of their existence. Then they may shine forth in daily life for what they truly are, the fire of life. Death dies from the faeces, the substantial vehicle of the above, by the same sort of achievement. As soon as the emotional and feeling principle functions cleanly in its own right, and the mind's perceptions and functions are enhanced by a divorce from automatic emotional and instinctual compulsion, then also their sheath undergoes a transformation. We know what tremendous changes can be wrought upon the physical body through neurosis and repression. We are also aware how functional and organic diseases and neurotic symptoms fall away." ['The Philosophers Stone' / I. Regardie].

The Vine of the Wise is the perfected and purified Stone. It bears comparison with the opening verses of the 15th {'fifteen'}chapter of the Gospel of St. John:

I am the true Vine and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away; and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through with the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit; for without me ye can do nothing.

The Vine yields wine for man’s pleasure. But it does so only through the application of an intelligence and a skill external to itself. Itself unaided, it remains but a vine. So by the alchemical artifice of putrefaction and distillation, the crude material of the astro-mental sheath is purified, becoming, so to speak, the wine or spirit thereof. Noteworthy also, is the fact that the Vine and wine generally are sacred in mythology to Bacchus. On the Qabalistic Tree of Fife he is referred to Tipharas, the solar centre, the source of reference of all the dying Gods who teach immortality, resurrection, and healing. The glorified and purified consciousness which is the Philosopher’s Stone is likewise a Tipharas attribution - and often is termed the Augoeides, the deathless solar body, the wedding garment of scripture. Thus the Stone is immortality, it is consciousness resurrected from death, gifted with divine healing. [Same].

Something hinted at: ''More often when you see the 'twin' sisters on tomb walls, you find Nephthys standing behind Isis, as if she were a shadow of her, eclipsed by Isis. However, looking at a New Kingdom sarcophagus, you see Nephthys standing at the head and Isis at the feet. During the Old Kingdom Pyramid Texts the placement of the goddesses is reversed." [Page 39 'The Union of Isis and Thoth'].

Something unknown 'becoming' known? Manifestation of? Feet or head first?

Working example: {in relation to the parents of Tiye. The wife of Amenhotep III}: "Whether Yuya had any foreign ancestry remains very unclear {Canary Islands?}. His title 'gods father' has been interpreted as indicating a king's father-in-law, but it is a relatively common priestly title {N.B. Was trained as a 'chariot' warrior}. Although Thuya has religious titles associating her with Min and Amun, she was also a hekeret nesut: 'royal ornament'. The precise meaning and implications of this term is uncertain and debated, but it was significant: many high officials, particularly those associated with the palace, were SONS OF WOMEN who carried this title. Thuya's coffin carries a text calling her mother of Tiye, and also of the priest Anun {i.e., brother and sister}. The inscription on a magnificent grano-diorite statue of Anun from the Luxor region, gives him many titles, including 'greatest of seers in the House of the Benben' and second prophet of Amun. Anun's own tomb at QURNA contained a spectacular painting showing him in front of an elaborate attired Amenhotep III and Tiye, who are seated on the dais with a triple canopy over them {'kiosk'?}."

"The Symplegades (/sɪmˈplɛɡədz/GreekΣυμπληγάδεςSymplēgádes) or Clashing Rocks, also known as the Cyanean Rocks (Κυανέαι), were, according to Greek mythology, a pair of rocks at the Bosphorus that clashed together whenever a vessel went through. They were defeated by Jason and the Argonauts, who would have been lost and killed by the rocks except for Phineus' advice. Jason let a dove fly between the rocks to see exactly how fast they'd have to row to beat the rocks; the dove lost only its tail feathers. The Argonauts rowed mightily to get through and lost only part of the stern ornament. After that, the Symplegades stopped moving permanently."

WITH ONES TAIL UP: "Having an optimistic, confident, or happy outlook, mindset, or attitude.
We know we have a huge challenge ahead of us, but we'll be going out onto the field with our tails up, and we'll do everything in our power to get a win."
DOVE = 'peace offering'.

The tail end of the ''stinger'' = two swimming ducks.

Side note: "The Symplegades are sometimes identified with (or confused with) the Planctae (Πλαγκταί) or Wandering Rocks, which are mentioned in the Odyssey and Apollonius of RhodesArgonautica. In Apollonius's telling, the Symplegades were encountered on the way to the Golden Fleece and the Planctae were encountered on the return voyage."

And/or: "Episode 10 is the only episode in Ulysses without a direct Homeric parallel. The Wandering Rocks appear in The Odyssey only third-hand, in Odysseus’ recount to the Phaeacians of Circe’s presentation of the two routes back to Ithaca: the course through the “Prowling Rocks, or Drifters,” “whose boiling surf, under high fiery winds,/carries tossing wreckage of ships and men” and the path between Scylla and Charybdis (XII.74, 83-4). Since Odysseus opts for the latter path, which Joyce traces in episode 9, “The Wandering Rocks” alludes to the road not taken in Homer’s epic. Though Ulysses here diverges from the plot of The Odyssey, Homer still furnishes Joyce’s fundamental inspiration for this episode—a decentralized, disjointed portrait of Dublin’s “tossing wreckage of…men.”

When the north wind blows. Heading south?

From a different perspective: ''Viewed from the rear, the ship seems to move away from the onlooker and shows that its displacement is ensured by the mizzen-sail, exclusive of the others. Alone it has the wind dead aft; alone, it transmits the energy to the ship gliding over the water. Now the cabalists write artimon {mizzen-mast} and pronounce antemin or antimon, a vocable behind which they hide the name of the subject of the sages {i.e., antimony i.e., has 'flame retardant and medicine properties....also conveys youth, glory, beauty, the most notable part of things....shines like fire''}.... the Flower of all metals FROM the prime substance - 'Fire stone' {i.e., the 'roughhewn' cubic stone { ''of six facets''} i.e., ''a complete coagulation of mercurial water....because our mercury carries within itself the sulphurous principle, rendered soluble'' .....AS long as it remains 'fixed' to the hermetic ship still in the process of 1st stage....has to get to a ''blessed haven'' {Rhodes Island?}....'' [Page 309-11 'Dwellings of the Philosophers'].

The Great Bell received it's sobriquet in honor of Sir Benjamin Hall, the First Commissioner for Works, who raised Big Ben to its current place atop the tower.''

''Diamonds (10) also show a variation in hardness (the octahedral faces are harder than the cube faces). For further information see articles from the American Mineralogist on microhardness, the Knoop tester, and diamonds. Mohs' hardness is a measure of the relative hardness and resistance to scratching between minerals.''

''The Mohs scale of mineral hardness is based on the ability of one natural sample of mineral to scratch another mineral visibly. The samples of matter used by Mohs are all different minerals. Minerals are chemically pure solids found in nature. Rocks are made up of one or more minerals. As the hardest known naturally occurring substance when the scale was designed, diamonds are at the top of the scale. The hardness of a material is measured against the scale by finding the hardest material that the given material can scratch, or the softest material that can scratch the given material. For example, if some material is scratched by apatite but not by fluorite, its hardness on the Mohs scale would be between 4 and 5...''

''Ten minerals make up the Mohs Scale from softest to hardest, they are talc (1), gypsum (2), calcite (3), fluorite (4), apatite (5), feldspar (6), quartz (7), topaz (8), corundum (9) and diamond (10).''

Refresher: "......obedience to the voice of the Great Teacher in his heart. That soundless voice, speaking within his heart, drowns for him all the clamourous judgements of the world.

A side step: "This book deals with the esoteric significance of a 13th century zodiac in one of the most beautiful churches in Italy, within the framework of a true symbolism...This study concerns itself with such topics as esotericism, mediaeval history and lore, astrology, secret writing, ecclesiastical doctrines and art history..." ['The Secret Zodiac'].

Follow the title of the book to 'see' it in its universal 'framework'.


Where have you seen it before?

"Ranking equal in excitement with the Neanderthal bear - skull altar is the carved stone zodiac of thirteen signs fashioned by the North American Mound Builder culture, and discovered in the Ouachita River, [near bend of ] Hot Springs, Arkansas. The Mound Builders flourished around the time of Christ, all over the eastern half of North America, so this zodiac as an artefact is some 2000 years old. Its tradition, however, is at least 20,000 years old - for in Israel we find another thirteen - zodiac inlaid in the floor of an old synagogue. One could perhaps, argue that the Mound Builders and the ancient Hebrews had independently conceived of a thirteen zodiac, based on the lunar year, if both were moon worshipers. However, there is a clincher. Both zodiacs involve a spider." [Chapter 10, 'Cities of Dreams'. Mentioned elsewhere].

What do spiders 'catch'?

''She likes to keep them alive to be eaten later.'' ['Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King' 2003].

'Web' of manifestation?

The author Stan Gooch attempting to define all the cultural mysteries to moon symbolism only... all the way back to Neanderthal man; and that relationship to Cro-Magnon man. This subject defined solely as ''metaphysical meanderings'' [Chapter 11].

''Gold fly-shaped pendants from ancient Egypt have been interpreted as military awards, possibly forming part of an honorary Order, that were given by the king to symbolise a brave soldier's persistence in battle.''

Question. When all the available evidence is put forward and understood beyond its first impressionable one , what do you think? See Lethbridges book on 'Gog Magog' to understand something further. Then try ''Spider''.

N.B. Mary Magdalene was known as the 'thirteenth' disciple.

Side note: Question. Cro-Magnon man in relation to Neanderthal man - which understood 'objectivity' {and all its benefits} - first? Or does it matter?

'The Implied Spider: Politics and Theology in Myths' / W. Doniger.

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

Sun or moon?

"The concept of the external archetype is important for the present book, for it does look as if Neanderthal had evolved an archetypal response to the moon - probably because of the , again, probably greater influence of the moon on the Neanderthal female menstrual cycle - while Cro-Magnon, for his part, had evolved an archetypal responce to the sun." [Chapter 17, 'Cities of Dreams'].

As mentioned in the same book the Mound builders had a fascination with the numbers 12 and 13. As does Gobekli tepe [not mentioned]. The 'spider' also important - or more importantly what it implies to the overall subject - not just one aspect of it. That same symbol that was also used within the DESIGN of the overall plan of the Nazca Lines. Those 'eight' legs {among others} that represent something other than the obvious.

Spiral, threads and …..?

"We can say then with confidence that the human responses to the numbers 3 and 7 and 13, and the seven - fold maze, and the snake and the spider are not archetypal, since we cannot identify in ourselves any biological situation of which they form part."..."These are entirely sociological and historical matters, and our reaction to them purely the result of cultural conditioning. There are not seven etheric chakras in the body, as the Indian esotericists claim [no one else has found them], and still less do they correspond to the endocrine glands, as if often alleged, of which there happen to be nine. Nor are there seven openings in the body, unless you are prepared to count the two eyes, ears and nostrils as one each." ['Cities of Dreams'].

A good example [if only for this reader] of not working through those 'first impressions'. To understand the whole picture define its parts, [or 'keys']. In other words using the above example look up [in the usual box] such words as ''chakras'' or ''nine'' or ''seven'' or ''spider'' or ''snake''.

That link to the legend of the 'lost' thirteenth zodiac sign - relative to the individual.

'Dome' on top of ''tower''?

From the 'waters' of creation {Self becoming?} - a lotus flower.

From a different perspective, i.e.,a {working?} one..."The Uxmal priest and priestess who were to lead the ceremony laid special cloths on the ground to form an altar. Many crystals and ceremonial objects were arranged on the altar. Finally, first one, then two, and eventually thirteen Mayan crystal skulls were laid out on the altar in a tight circle. And then a Mayan weaving was placed over them, hiding them from view, for it was not quite time yet for their ''special'' ceremony...About fifteen or so elders and indigenous people were asked to join the inner circle...The Mayan priestess lit ceremonial herbs and incense in a small, ancient cauldron, filling the air with a pungent scent. Then she raised her arms as her male companion blew the sound of the conch and opened the ceremony with prayers to the four directions...A woman said to me later that she felt all through the ceremony that the Tower of Babel was slowly crumbling. So perhaps in coming together in this way with the Mayans in this ancient ceremony we were symbolically ending the divisions among countries, cultures etc...As the last smoke of the cauldron drifted over the crowd and the ceremony ended we came together like old friends from long lost tribes...We were a rainbow of One Spirit {'aura'?}" ['Serpent of Light Beyond 2012'. Emphasis, this readers].

'Spirit' or 'Soul' ?

''Nasturtium being a flowering plant is sometimes translated as 'nose twister' because of its pungent scent.'' ['Imossible' ].

N.B. Symbol of the 'lower' will is the altar.

'Tower of Babel' in relation to lower. 'Rainbow' = natures equivalent of 'Gnosis' {'higher'} Representation of - within landscape symbolism, i.e.,what are the 'constituents' of a rainbow; how are they made; what do they 'connect' ? Try ''flint'' for an 'alternative' viewpoint but on the same 'pole'.

comic3"In the circumstances, a good deal of nonsense has been written in recent years by the psychoanalysts and feminist writers [of both sexes] on the alleged psychological [i.e.,archetypal] significance of items mentioned in the previous paragraph [snake, spider, mazes, 'numbers' etc. This readers input]. But the clear position is that our response in these cases is to be understood as sociological and historical, as purely the outcome of cultural practice and conditioning. It is very important that we grasp this truth. For otherwise we shall have people continuing to claim that precisely designed seven-fold mazes, amongst others, are independently generated psychological 'archetypes' - and not therefore, and on the contrary, vital clues to the origins of our civilization." ['Cities of Dreams'].

Strangely enough - understanding the 'full' story gives a deeper meaning to those possible ''origins''. Before that bigger question can be asked. Fact or fiction. A possibility or not?

As is the intent of: "A divergent thought intervened, breaking Thomas's continuous attention. It was then that the symbol of Maitre Jacques dissolved into an image he had registered into his mind from childhood: an angel and a devil were tormenting a poor old man, each trying to lead him in its own direction. Freed by this distraction, Thomas's imagination started to wander, mixing belief with superstition, symbol with fantasy, and mocking fundamental judgements such as 'good and 'bad' {'feast of fools' link?}. It evoked legendary temptations and produced the image of Mephistopheles and Faust, leading his rationalizations instinctively to take revenge against the attention he had been giving to the suggestions of Maitre Jacques. That's the very kind of fiction i must watch out for. Its easy to invent under pretext of initiation! Hold on to your common sense, Jean Thomas. Humanity has been able to arrive at the age of reason and must not take these fairy tales seriously!''... Why this reaction that suddenly jarred him with revolt? Whom was he revolting against? Against the idea of Maitre Jacques? Self reproach forced him to look at himself..." ['Journey Into Light' / Isha Schwaller de Lubicz].

Maitre Jacques in relation to 'higher'. Jean {John} Thomas in relation to 'lower' as a means...?

{N.B. Only read when a good foundation has been established - but understanding who the genuine authors are of this 'subject material' gives deeper answers to those internal questions while allowing one also to answer {among others} - such riddles as 'Fulcanelli'}.

Side note: The same question could be asked to the contents within the book 'The Sword in the Sun' / A. Duncan. Enlarged elsewhere.

Question. Parables {parody?} only? Fairy tales?

The same question can be applied to the following..."There is really no doubt that the original prehistoric moon calendar served purely religious purposes. Even in historic times, Jewish and Islamic holy festivals were regulated by the moon - while sun calendars were employed in respect of purely civic events. There is no practical point in having two calendars. No, the position is that an ancient, traditional calendar - serving some non practical purpose - has been partly replaced by one of more usefulness for everyday affairs." ['Dream Culture of the Neanderthals' / S. Gooch]. Try ''Ishtar'' - for an alternative viewpoint - and/or subject material to define ''some non practical purpose''.


'The Way of Banksy' {Even money?} OR 'Javelin Prayer' {Odds-on?}. As one of the means {or ways} to ....?

Another example. The Sumerian equivalent for the 'Benben', [or Benbenet.Explained elsewhere] the word ’Shem’. Because it looks like a missile. Mr Sitchin concludes therefore; almost instantly; then that is what it must be. Thereafter he uses no other word to describe it other than "missile", Or, as indicated on page 149, a 'sky-borne vehicle'. The word 'shem' derived from chapter eleven, of Genesis, in relation to the 'Tower of Babel'. Where all... 'spoke one language'. Exoteric equivalent of that 'inner' language that only this subject explains. Once understood, that true 'language', has now been found, [verified, of sorts, within the book 'The Sacred History by J. Black].

"The Arcanum "The Tower of destruction" teaches a general and universal law that it presents in the comprehension for of the tower of Babel. A general and universal law - this means to say a law that operates on a small and large scale - in individual biography as well as in that of mankind, and in the past, present and future equally. According to this law, he who rebels against his ''higher self'' will no longer live under the law of the vertical but rather that of the horizontal, i.e.,he will be a ''fugitive and a wanderer on the earth." [genesis iv,12]." [Extract from the book by Tomberg. 'Letter 16' ].

Cain and Abel?

N.B. Planets = ''Wandering Stars''. As a means...?

Side note: {something to ponder on relative to the above}: "From the above inscription {i.e., in relation to the Memphite Theology, i.e.,the ''union'' of something}, we can deduce that, at some point, ancient Egyptians regarded the land of Egypt as shared between Horus and Seth. Then, for reasons that are not clear, Horus was given total control of the whole of Egypt. Could it be that the Memphite Theology, reflects historical events that occurred in the late 2nd and early 3rd dynasties? Could it explain the placing of Seth on the serekh of King Peribsen, and the placing of both Seth and Horus on the serekh of King Khasekhemwy, only to revert back to just Horus on Netjerykhet's serekh? This idea has indeed occurred to some Egyptologists." ['Imhotep the African'].

Serekh = ''facade'' = 'Face on' as opposed to {say} 'in profile'? Enlarged throughout.

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

Another version mentions only one daughter, who received a 'deer skin' {nebris} from a god as a present. This was more than the gift of a special type of garment. It indicates the bestowal of a rite in consequence of which the deer skin could be worn: nebri-zein also means the rending of an animal. The cult action in which the sacrificial animal was dismembered, however, required at least two persons..."

Refresher: ''Three of the Amarna letters - a collection of hundreds of cuneiform tablets discovered in Akhenaten's capital city of Akhetaten in the late 19th century - mention Meritaten using the name Mayati. In two of these letters, she is said to have quasi-royal status. After Nefertiti's death, however, Meritaten appears without her previous title of royal daughter, but as 'first lady' and later with a nearly royal rank....At least one artefact from Tutankhamun's tomb which belonged to the 'queen pharaoh', has two cartouches side by side, one with her coronation name, Ankhkheperure, and the other her birth name, Meritaten.''

''Take this as a sign of the wholeness you have become.'' Jung's dream prior to death.

''Lets talk about it'' - a phrase often used by members of the same family. Why do they NOT talk about anything other than that comfortable subject - 'climate change'? To lead by example?

''The mythic search for the Beloved of the Soul is synonymous with the soul's journey throughout life in an effort to reclaim the parts of the self that have been severed, lost or abandoned. In doing so, we create a new body and soul; a holy place {'Adytum'?} more suited to contain the depth mysteries and realities that we discover along the journey. To 'die' to one's self and to be remade into a more living, spiritual being is part of the journey of Osiris and the task of Isis, so that a living monument {'Boulder'?} may be erected to signify the depth of what has been lost and is now reclaimed, the depth of what was hidden to the eyes and is now within the 'heart' of the sojourner, revealed.''

Continued: A working example: ''As we prepared to return to the 'city', i wondered whether the harvest of my own life would be as easy as our day's work and as joyous as our celebration. What was i prepared to sacrifice? What had i outgrown? Where would the knife fall? And what fruit would rest in my hand? The sun, and its warmth, had slipped behind the horizon....It was time to go. The WANING moon had risen, a crones sickle shining in the black sky, reminding us of time's daily harvest....preparing herself for winter's rest. A wild thrashing in the high stalks froze me in MID-TURN....An enormous buck in full rack of seven tines suddenly appeared in the northern field.

comicContinued: That same process he [Mr Sitchin], applies to other ‘words’. Which fits in with his personnel hypothesis. Verified by the same. With his interpretation of the word, Til..mun. ’Land of Missiles’. [ Explained elsewhere ]. His understanding of the word ’cross’ in the same vein, i.e.,"Archaeological finds have confirmed the extensive Minoan worship of the bull, and some cylinder seals depict the bull as a 'divine' being accompanied by a cross symbol, which stood for some unidentified star or planet".

Mr sitchin is a good example of other authors like Mr R. Bauval or Mr A. Alford. Their research is excellent. Many ‘keys’ of information to be found; in relation to this subject; unbeknown to the same authors; but because they have no idea of the esoteric side to that same information their conclusions are off the mark.

Mr Alford believes; as with some other authors; that Mr Khufu will be found under the Pyramid without understanding the esoteric side of what came to be known as ’Labyrinths’. [ Explained elsewhere ]. Or understanding what 'esoteric' information there is on Mr Khufu. Only when this final subject is taken into account and understood in its complete form; not its 'first impressionable' one; will a complete answer/picture emerge. That final piece of the jigsaw. That last piece that will complete that overall picture. As all other subjects do in their own way. The human history one. Therefore - that which was once lost - is now found.

And people usually think that they can sit between two stools, that is, that they can acquire the new and preserve the old; they do not think this consciously of course but it comes to the same thing....G. once said that there was no sense in our going on any further in this way and that we ought to make a definite decision whether we wanted to go on with him, wanted to work, or whether it was better to abandon all attempts in this direction, because a half serious attitude would give no results whatever. He added that he would only continue to work with those who would make a definite decision to struggle with mechanicalness in themselves and with sleep.

A work in progress: The Book of Genesis, chapter 15, tells us that, soon after Abram received the blessing of the God Most High, the Lord visited his word upon him in a vision. He commanded Abram to look up at the stars and count them, if he could. God promises that Abram’s descendants will be as numerous as the stars, or possibly will be as the stars. All he has to do is make a covenant with the Lord by performing a peculiar ritual sacrifice. Abram is told to take five animals, split the heifer, the goat, and the ram in half, and leave the two birds whole. The ten resulting sections, the six separated halves and the four unseparated halves, can be attributed to the spheres on the Tree of Life, according to the sages of the Sefer Yetzirah. Abram made his strange sacrifice of the split animals at sunset and fell into a deep sleep. We are told that thick and dreadful darkness came over him, and the Lord spoke within it describing the future of Abram’s descendants. And then a curious thing happened. Abram had a vision of a smoking firepot with a blazing torch. According to most authorities, this is an ancient symbol of the presence of the God Most High. This torch or pillar went through the gap between Binah and Tiferet and Yesod and Tiferet. This, Genesis tells us, sealed the covenant between Abram and his god.....

Twentysix links in a figure of 'eight'.

Later, when Abram was ninety-nine years old, the God Most High made a return appearance to confirm the covenant. This time the Lord changed Abram’s name to Abraham, by adding an h, or the Hebrew letter heh, in the middle. Heh, is a pictogram of a window in ancient Hebrew. ['The Mysteries of the Great Cross of Hendaye'].

And/or: The event, which gave Abram his insight into the nature of time, which was the window of the letter heh needed to spell Abraham, was his covenant with God. At this event, we are told in Genesis, a fiery torch passed through the alignment of sacrifices from the northwest to the southeast, an alignment preserved to this day by the location of the Black Stone in the cube or Kaaba of Mecca. This line from the northwest to the southeast corner is the galactic axis, of course. Abraham’s covenant represents a shift from the High God of the El to a new hidden god controlling the temporal quality of the galactic axis and its alignments. This God, unlike the placid and benign El, could become angry and dispense judgment and destruction......

Mastermyr chest. GOTLAND. Most of the find had been placed in the chest, but there were also objects around it such as three bronze cauldrons, three bells and a fire-grid of iron. A chain, made up of 26 figure-of-eight shaped links, was wrapped around it. It served both as an extra lock and handle since the chest was too heavy for the original handle. The chest and the other items had probably been placed in a boat which capsized and sank in the lake. Another theory is that the chest was temporarily hidden at the water's edge. 
The chest contained Viking-era blacksmithing and woodworking tools. It also contained several products of such work, including elements of several locks. The chest and its contents provide a valuable insight into technology during the Viking Age.

The Black Stone was the physical seal of this covenant, a gift from the sky, a token of God’s favor. It is interesting to note that the description in Genesis 15:17 of the smoking firepot with a blazing torch coming out of it also suggests the path of a meteor through the sky. The actual placement of the Black Stone within the Kaaba also suggests the northwest-southeast axis of the galaxy as seen in two dimensions. The stone that fell from heaven is a physical piece of evidence for the presence of the God Most High. With this in mind, we can understand the reference in Psalm 118 to the rejected stone that became the head of the corner, and Jesus’ denunciation of the Jewish elders for not understanding their own religion.

And/or: ''When Plato writes about Poseidon, the first god-king of Atlantis, this should remind us that Poseidon was the original half-fish form of Zeus/Jupiter. Poseidon was also god of the raging sea, god of subterreanean, volcanic depths, whose bull-bellowing roar signalled climatic catastrophe. Poseidon was at work at both the beginning and end of Atlantis's history." [Page 163/4 'Secret History of the World' / J. Black].

Continued: "IN this context the word 'spirit' means the mind that blows through many places like the wind. The friend of Job also calls mind spirit when he says: 'I am filled with reasoning and the spirit of my BELLY binds me' {Job 32:18}. In Proverbs memory is called the belly; hence Solomon says: 'Bring your heart close to my teaching, which will be beautiful for you if you keep it in your belly and will overflow on your lips so that you will trust in god' {Prov. 22:17-18}. The first authority says, then, that the spirit of his belly compelled him to speak because the thoughts and reflections and reasonings held in his memory were great and efficacious, and thus spirit signifies mind, which like the spirit comes and goes where it pleases." [From the book 'The Third Spiritual Alphabet' by Francisco de Osuna]. Try ''memory''. Connect the two.

A working example {and/or something extra}: ''And when the harsh fire , the primeval sulphur, burns in the pit of our stomachs, it is difficult for us to choose to be good hearted." [Page 93 'The Secret  History of the World' / J. Black].

And/or: ''As well as in medicine, the Chinese and Japanese tend to lay great emphasis on the role of the solar plexus in spiritual practice. If you contemplate a statue of a meditating Buddha, you will see someone who has gathered himself inward, and that the center of this meditation, his center of mental and spiritual gravity, is his lower belly....He has sunk down into the center within himself - sometimes called the 'hara' - that is connected with all life.

Astronomical equivalent {i.e.,that very first one - i.e.,first method used to imply those universal keys/principles?}: "The second curiosity is that warriors previously identified with stars on or very close to the ecliptic are 'killed' in the same manner, by a blow to the 'belly'. In terms of magnitude these stars are not particularly bright, but they are significant in astronomical terms because of where they lie. When warriors are struck in the belly, the most central part of the anatomy, a useful mental image directs the eye to the ecliptic, the apparent path of the sun. This helps to focus attention on Mars closeness to the ecliptic when Ares too is wounded in the stomach when 'Pallas Athene drove the spear into the pit of Ares stomach where his under girdle went round him'. The incident doubly reminds the audience of the ecliptic, because Athene as Jupiter closely follows the path of the sun.

"Mainstream prophets who predict the future sometimes project their intuitions about their own fate onto the larger situation in the world. In this regard, a study of modern prophets and their eschatological utterances is revealing. Many of these visionaries make passionate - and very specific- predictions about the end of the world. For all of them, the end was near, and they were convinced this was true. When the predicted date rolled around, a great majority of these prophets experienced accidents, or died suddenly. Now, what does this say about self-determination, free will, and their 'prophetic ability'..." ['Galactic Alignment'].

Refresher: "Contrary to what might be considered logical, the mineral kingdom is not situated at the bottom, of the lowest register of the temple walls that explains the phases of becoming. As the first corporeal form, the metallic or mineral kingdom is the closest to the origin, closer to the spirit that animates everything. Because it is created and not procreated. It is located at the uppermost register of the tableaux. The personages at this highest level symbolize non-procreated principles and are depicted without navels. The lowest register portrays Royal Man, symbol of the ultimate aim of creation. Between the two {'void'?} is located the register of pure Number, corresponding to the plant kingdom, and next is the register of combinations or geometry of Numbers, the animal kingdom. The temple is fashioned by man in the image of the heavens, in the image of his world...The incarnation of the universe in man is the fundamental theme of all religions...."

This symbol is the only hieroglyphic on the outer wall of the Great Pyramid...The name given to the pyramid was 'Akhet Khufu', which meant ''horizon of Khufu'' - this later term was misunderstood by later Egyptologists, who turned it into the name Cheops. This pregnant symbol is {also?} located above the passageway which pierces into the rock foundations of the vast structure. As a symbol, it survived into modern times - as the symbol for Libra, the cosmic balance, which now consists of three elements...When he had drawn the sigil, he ran the back of his pencil {'lead'?} through the curvature of space {'arc' / Uas?} - between the solar disc and the horizon of earth...'The invisible {'crescent'?} space is just as important as the Sun and Earth.

Understanding the above not only gets us closer to defining the {mind set?} of all individuals who participate within the subject as a whole - but gives clues to possible burial locations within 'landscape' symbolism of same intent and purpose , i.e.,Aries a link to Osiris. Soil and seed in relation to Dendera - of which it is said, the very first representation of a Zodiac, within Egypt was discovered. Other clues, throughout.

The REAL questions however, remain the same.

El-Tel Bethsai? {Israel}.

Try ''butter'' by way of ''transforming fingers''.

Something to ponder on {in relation to same picture}..."Placentas, when featured in ancient myth and ritual, are often associated with the theme of 'twins', a matter that may well have some bearing on the presence of the twin pillars at the center of the enclosures at Gobekli-tepe. For example, among the Baganda tribe of Uganda the placenta and umbilical cord of the kings {king-ship?} are considered the source of his ''twin'' {mulongo}, which is seen as the ghost or spirit of the 'placenta'. During the monarchs life it is kept under constant watch in a specially built 'Temple of the Twin', and at the first sight of the lunar crescent each month it is brought into the kings presence for a special ceremony. Once the ceremony is complete, the ''twin'' is exposed in the doorway of the temple for the moon to shine upon it, and also anointed with butter..." ['Gobekli Tepe' by A. Collins]. Try ''twin'' and/or {by association; to the above} ''womb'' ' / ''milk'' - in the usual box, for something further {insight?} - to ponder on.

The army constituted the backbone of the administration. It was divided into two main groups - the right and left 'arms'. As the nomads always pitched their tents facing the south, the left arm meant the eastern army group and the right arm the western....The military organization was based on the decimal principle.

Through caverns measureless to man, down to a sunless sea. So twice five miles of fertile ground with walls and towers were girdled round; and there were gardens bright with sinuous rills, where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree; And here were forests ancient as the hills,
Enfolding sunny spots of greenery.

But oh! that deep romantic chasm which slanted down the green hill athwart a cedarn cover!

A savage place! as holy and enchanted as e’er beneath a waning moon was haunted by woman wailing for her demon-lover! And from this chasm, with ceaseless turmoil seething, as if this earth in fast thick pants were breathing, a mighty fountain momently was forced: Amid whose swift half-intermitted burst huge fragments vaulted like rebounding hail, Or chaffy grain beneath the thresher’s flail: And mid these dancing rocks at once and ever It flung up momently the sacred river. Five miles meandering with a mazy motion through wood and dale the sacred river ran, then reached the caverns measureless to man, and sank in tumult to a lifeless ocean.''

 A damsel with a dulcimer in a vision once I saw: It was an Abyssinian maid and on her dulcimer she played, singing of Mount Abora. Could I revive within me her symphony and song, to such a deep delight ’twould win me, that with music loud and long, I would build that dome in air, that sunny dome! those caves of ice! And all who heard should see them there, and all should cry, Beware! Beware! His flashing eyes, his floating hair!

And/or: Kubla Khan: or, A Vision in a Dream: A Fragment (/ˌkʊblə ˈkɑːn/) is a poem written by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, completed in 1797 and published in 1816. According to Coleridge's preface to Kubla Khan, the poem was composed one night after he experienced an opium-influenced dream after reading a work describing Shangdu, the summer capital of the Yuan dynasty founded by the Mongol Emperor Kublai Khan. Upon waking, he set about writing lines of poetry that came to him from the dream until he was interrupted by "a person from Porlock". The poem could not be completed according to its original 200–300 line plan as the interruption caused him to forget the lines. He left it unpublished and kept it for private readings for his friends until 1816 when, at the prompting of Lord Byron, it was published.

Porlock is a coastal village in Somerset, England, 5 miles (8 km) west of Minehead. It has a population of 1,440. In 2010, Porlock had the most elderly population in Britain, with over 40% being of pensionable age. There is evidence for 10th or 11th century origin for the name Porlock as Portloc or Portloca meaning enclosure by the harbour, from the Old English port and loca,[3] and in the Domesday Book the village was known as "Portloc".[4] In 914 the Vikings plundered Porlock.

Side note: The mystical experience of the galgal, or cycle, of the Tree of Knowledge is the whirlwind, or sufah in our Talmudic reference.'® The galgal is also spoken of in the Bahir as a womb. This is a cycle of time in which the future is born. All of time happens within the sphere defined by the Teli. The Bahir also tells us that the Teli is revealed in the heart of heaven.’? This is both our own human, personal, spiritual center, the heart of man, and the heart at the center of our own Milky Way galaxy. Together they pulsate in harmonic fractals of the same wave.... The word sufi—composed of three Arabic letters, the sa, the wa, and the fa—has many different connotations and derivations. To some, it means safa, or “purity.” Others see it as safwe, or “the selected ones.” Other contenders are saf, “line” and “row,” because,the Sufis follow the “straight path” of Muhammad. Suf, “wool,” is also a good candidate because the Sufis often wore long woolen robes. The Greek word sophia, or wisdom, is also a possible candidate. But the inner meaning of sa-wa-fa is sufah, or “whirlwind.”*° This inner meaning points to the process of spiritual transformation that is at the heart of Sufism.

The imagery of Wagner's opera cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen and its last part, Götterdämmerung, is typically used in depictions accompanying uses of the phrase. The "fat lady" is thus the valkyrie Brünnhilde, who was traditionally presented as a very buxom lady. Her farewell scene lasts almost twenty minutes and leads directly to the finale of the whole Ring Cycle.[1] As Götterdämmerung is about the end of the world (or at least the world of the Norse gods), in a very significant way "it is [all] over when the fat lady sings."

"The river Boyne, like other Irish rivers, springs from a source beyond our time and space. This is the well of Segais, a place glimpsed repeatedly in descriptions of the 'Otherworld,' or of poetic art. Nine hazels grow above it, and their nuts fall into the water. Salmon dwell there, and feed upon the same. The 'nuts,' the 'water,' and the 'salmon' are all suffused with imbas, ''the great knowledge'' which illuminates the understanding of the wise.....Many have sought the the imbas of the Boyne. Heroes and sages have waited beside a pool of the river to spear the 'miraculous' salmon of wisdom; and the 'pygmy' harper Senbecc voyaged upstream in a little boat of bronze, in quest of the secrets of the nine hazels. The cryptic treatise which modern scholars call ''The Caldron of Poesy'' speaks of poets standing on the banks of the river every seven years in the middle of June, hoping to catch the imbas as it sped against the current.............We read such things and wonder what they mean."[Chapter entitled 'The Waters of Vision and the Gods of Skill' from the book 'Alexandria' Vol 1.

For this reason Hermes made it the number of initiation, because the initiate reigns over superstition; [positive over negative] he alone can advance through the darkness, leaning on his 'staff', enveloped in his 'mantle' and lighted by his 'lamp'.

This is certainly possible, but problems arise when it comes to identifying the ''entity or situation'': the usual explanation, derived from Near Eastern parallels, that Chaos represents the gap between earth and sky [before these two actually exists]...If we accept the view that some primal substance or situation antedates the existence of chaos, we must remember that Chaos means ''darkness'' as well as ''gap'': although a change in a pre-existent situation may be implied, this change itself is lost in darkness and imperceptibility."[Chapter 4, 'The Origin of the Gods: A Psychoanalytic Study of Greek Theogonic Myth' by R.

A {working?} example {the very first one?}: "Hera cleansed all the dirt from her fair body with ambrosia, then she anointed herself with olive oil, ambrosia, very soft, and scented specially for herself - if it were so much as shaken in the bronze floored 'house' of Zeus, the scent pervaded the universe of heaven and earth. With this she anointed her delicate skin, and then she plaited the fair ambrosial locks that flowed in a stream of golden tresses from her immortal head. She put on the wondrous robe that Athene had worked for her with consummate art, and had embroidered with manifold devices; she fashioned it about her bosom with golden clasps, and she girdled herself with a girdle that has a hundred tassels: she then fastened her earrings, three brilliant pendents that glistened most beautifully, through the pierced lobes of her ears, and threw a lovely new veil over her head..."

Or Mr Burkert opinion, [ ‘Creation of the Sacred’. Chapter four ]...that all headgear is worn...,"To increase the height". Which fits in with his...authority over the masses hypothesis... While recalling obvious circumstantial information such as; as it is in Miss Lamys book...that the ‘human spine’ can be both in the horizontal and vertical position.

"The symbolic significance of the Djed pillar, found widely throughout Egypt, is not known. It is thought to represent stability. It seems likely that the symbol represents four separate pillars, one inside the other, each representing one of the cardinal points. Loss of any single pillar would lead to instability." [Page 124, 'The Tutankhamun Prophecies']. Question. What do you think when all the available 'evidence' is assessed?

"The four - tiered Djed column is also an emblem peculiar to Asar [Osiris]. In amulet form it represents the trunk of the Acacia tree in which Asar was concealed and found by Auset [Isis] after his death. It is also believed to signify the spinal cord of the god, symbolically 'raised' at his restoration. Its four tiers correspond to the four regions of the spine: the cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacred vertebrae. In amulet form, the Egyptians believed "it gives the power to reconstitute the body and become a perfect soul."

Side note: ''The term nfr has been incorporated into many names in Ancient Egypt. Examples include Nefertiti, Nefertari, and Neferhotep.

Continued: ''The Djed column symbolizes the 'Principle of Renewal,' which Asar performs as 'sovereign' of all human beings, in that he serves as the prototype of the human form. One of his names, ''Un Nefer,'' means to ''spring up, arise." The hieroglyphic sign used to denote his name in this aspect is the hare, a symbol of the spring season in numerous cultures, and a representation of 'reproduction' in nature. However, in the context of Asar, the hare represents the circulation of the individual life force, which ''rises'' from this life into the next." [Chapter two, 'The Sacred Tradition in Ancient Egypt']. That understanding of which cannot come about without its 'eureka' moments.

A reconstruction of the pronaos’s ceiling by Jollois and de Villiers. Image: Description de l’Égypte, vol.IV, pl.19. AND/OR: The Greek word “pronaos” (Πρόναος) refers to the outer part of an ancient Greek temple. It forms a portico immediately in front of the cella, which is the inner sanctuary of the temple. The pronaos is delimited by the front wall of the cella and the columns or the antae (the projecting walls at the sides of the cella). Essentially, it serves as an entrance area or vestibule before entering the main temple structure. In early Christian architecture, the term “pronaos” was also used to describe the narthex, which is the entrance or lobby of an early church.

N.B. 'Twentyfour' columns within Denderah. 'Eighteen' on the inside six on the facade.

And/or: The inner space of the temple of Seti I at Abydos dedicated to six Egyptian gods. On the facade of the building can be seen six apertures either side of the main entrance. A total therefore of thirteen.


Right at the heart of Egypt, situated 60 miles north of Luxor and to the south of Abydos, lies the Dendera temple complex – an important religious site in antiquity.

The construction of the main structure of the complex, the Temple of Hathor, was commissioned by the pharaoh Ptolemy XII. His daughter Cleopatra VII, the last pharaoh of Egypt, continued the construction work after his death. Commemorating her dedicated support, a relief showing Cleopatra and her son Caesarion graces the outer southern wall of the temple {'BEHIND'?}, serving as an enduring testament to her patronage.

The temple is perhaps best known for the Dendera Zodiac, an intricately carved circular bas-relief depicting celestial constellations, including those of the zodiac, which is now on display in the Musée du Louvre. The real gem of the temple, however, is the beautifully decorated ceiling commonly known as the ‘Rectangular Zodiac’. It is located in the pronaos of the temple, which is roughly the size of two tennis courts. The brilliance of its original colours can be seen today thanks to the restoration work sponsored by Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities. The worship of Hathor can be traced as far back as the Early Dynastic Period (c.3100-2686 BC) in Egypt.

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

She was a multifaceted deity associated with various aspects of life, including music, dance, and rhythmic movements. She was also the personification of emotions and the moods aroused by music. She could be joyful and tender, but sometimes full of rage, dissonant, and violent. Hathor assumed the sacred role of the goddess of birth and fertility, presiding over the cyclical rhythms that define life’s perpetual dance. Frequently portrayed as a celestial cow adorned with a radiant solar disc between her majestic horns, she symbolises motherhood and nourishment. Her milk was the Milky Way, overarching the celestial dome, giving nourishment to souls during their perilous journey through the underworld. As a celestial deity, she helped to preserve cosmic harmonies.

Milky white?

Those cosmic harmonies are the subject of the ceiling of the pronaos of her temple. The ceiling is supported by TWENTYFOUR imposing columns, fashioned in the likeness of a sistrum, a musical instrument symbolic of the goddess Hathor. The seven panels (Central, East 1-3, and West 1-3) of the ceiling beautifully depict the different celestial rhythms observed by the ancient Egyptians. Together they encompass the totality of existence: from the present, on the central panel, to eternity on the sides. The three panels to the east of the central one represent the day, and the three to the west represent the night. Those cosmic harmonies are the subject of the ceiling of the pronaos of her temple. The ceiling is supported by 24 imposing columns, fashioned in the likeness of a sistrum, a musical instrument symbolic of the goddess Hathor. The seven panels (Central, East 1-3, and West 1-3) of the ceiling beautifully depict the different celestial rhythms observed by the ancient Egyptians. Together they encompass the totality of existence: from the present, on the central panel, to eternity on the sides. The three panels to the east of the central one represent the day, and the three to the west represent the night.

The central panel, on the temple’s axis, sets the connection between heaven and earth, the divine and the mundane. It represents the present and depicts a winged solar disc, a symbol of Horus incarnated as the pharaoh. On panel East 1, 12 boats representing the 12 diurnal hours of the day, carry the sun on its daily journey across the sky. A different representation of the sun sits on each boat: a child at sunrise; a teen at mid-morning; a four-headed ram at noon; a mature man at mid-afternoon; and an old man at sunset. Panel West 1 represents the lunar month. The moon is depicted in perhaps the most exquisite scene of the whole ceiling, at the centre of this panel. Fourteen deities – the Heliopolitan Ennead – are climbing a staircase, helping with the reconstruction of the dismembered body of Osiris, the moon, shown as the eye of Horus. Each step on the staircase represents one of the days of the moon’s waxing. The reconstruction is orchestrated by the wisdom of Thoth, who presides over the scene.

Panels East 2 and West 2 depict one of the most ingenious ideas devised by the ancient Egyptians: the decans. They divided the sky into thirtysix equal parts, in each of which they identified a group of stars so that they could recognise that region at night. The first decan to appear on the eastern horizon at sunset marked the first hour of the night. As the night advanced, a new decan appeared on the horizon, allowing them to count the 12 hours of the night. Every ten days, a new decan appeared on the horizon at sunset.

Venus/Mars. Taurus/Aries. Sheep decan?


In the outer panels, East 3 and West 3, the ceiling is enclosed by two images of the goddess Nut arched across the sky. She is eternity, the vast and dark space in which the celestial dance occurs. She is shown swallowing the sun at sunset and giving birth to the sun at sunrise. These two panels are further divided into an upper and a lower track. In the lower one, the boats of the decans navigate the nightly ocean, while the upper one shows the different planets, stars, and constellations, including the 12 constellations of the zodiac. Astronomer priests standing on the roof of the temple carefully observed, measured, and recorded the movement of the celestial bodies, and noticed their correspondence to natural events (such as the flooding of the Nile, which coincided with the rising of the star Sirius near the sun and marked the beginning of their year). Based on their observations, they created calendars that regimented their rituals and festivals. These rituals regulated the activities of Egyptian society: the time to plough, the time to plant, the time to harvest.

Side note: The frequency of eclipses varies depending on the type of eclipse12In most calendar years, there are two lunar eclipses, but in some years, one, three, or none occur1Solar eclipses occur two to five times a year, with five being exceptional1The average number of total solar eclipses in a century is 66 for Earth as a whole1Approximately once every eighteen months, a total solar eclipse is visible from some place on the Earth’s surface

Inverness - CITY - Coat of Arms. Desert animals?

Continued: 'Thirteen' in relation to: "The full moon gives its clue. The markings seen on its face are called The Mark of the Hare in Tibet, China, and Ceylon, as well as in Africa and North America. Indeed the Hare in the Moon is as well known as our own Man in the Moon. The rabbit or hare represents to the negro as well as to the American Indian, the animal incarnation of the hero. We recall the stories of Brer Rabbit among the negroes of the United States which correspond exactly to myths of a rabbit hero in West Africa. In North America Indian mythology Hare plays a similar role. For instance, among the Iroquois, Great Hare is one form of Great Manitu, the Great Spirit, who is either himself the moon or his grandmother is the moon. This hare incarnation corresponds roughly to the Christian symbolism of Christ as Hero, who is the Lamb that was slain. The Easter Bunny contains a symbolism that lies close to these ideas. Easter, as we shall see later, was originally a moon festival and was connected with the resurrection of the moon man or moon hero, long before the dawn of Christianity."

''What is a desert? Deserts cover more than one-fifth of the Earth's land area, and they are found on every continent. A place that receives less than 10 inches (twentyfive centimeters) of rain per year is considered a desert. Deserts are part of a wider class of regions called drylands.''

A working example: ''The number of crocodiles and soft-shelled turtles, both dangerous aquatic reptiles, is unusually high at Hierakonpolis; moreover, the percentage of wild mammals (nearly 16% compared to only 1.2% at HK11) suggests this is one of the rare Predynastic sites where hunting was not just a minor economic activity. The species that were hunted are also exceptional. Animals such as hare and Dorcas gazelle are more numerous than at other sites, but also present are Barbary sheep, which have previously only been recorded from Adaima, and Dama gazelle, which have not been found at any other Predynastic site. Control over wild animals, as a symbol that chaos has been subdued, is a recurrent theme in Predynastic iconography.....Cattle were always dominant, but the relative importance of pig was low at Hierakonpolis (including HK29A) and other Upper Egyptian sites when compared to those in Lower Egypt, where the ecological conditions for pig keeping were more favourable. In Upper Egypt goats outnumber sheep, while the opposite is true for Lower Egypt, probably because goats are better adapted to harsher circumstances....



Heavy feet? Surfing on the 'back'?

The unusual nature of the animal remains from HK29A is apparent from both the quality of the aquatic fauna and the quantity of wild mammals present. The fish fauna are exceptional because of the large size of the Nile perch, some of which were at least 1.5 m long. At other Predynastic sites, specimens of over 1 m in length occur only occasionally, whereas large specimens predominate at HK29A. It would thus appear that for the events happening at the temple, special efforts were made to capture large Nile perch, which can only be found in the deeper parts of the Nile.''

And/or: "We have just climbed the ancient steps to the ancient Temple Mount, now the Al Aqsa Mosque. These are the steps pilgrims took for centuries. We are going up to the Hulda Gates, or the double and triple gates that they call it today - so that we can reflect on this prayer of the Assembly {Psalms}. This is the door from the time of Jesus {now covered/blocked/walled up   with stone work - as was an aspect of Ramses Temple}. When i first learned about this the Franciscan who told me about it said i could always picture Mary with Jesus in Her Arms coming here into the temple to present him to the Lord and RESTING for a moment to catch your breath on this doorpost. The Hulda Gates are a link to the Old Testament prophetess Hulda. That led up to the dwelling of the Lord. A link to the 150 Psalms. The oldest written around the time of Moses. The south corner of the temple called the trumpeting corner. " [Day six: Psalms. Prayer of the Assembly: Lent 2024. Magdala. Israel].

My help comes from the Lord, who made Heaven and Earth. He will guard my coming and going. I rejoiced...Our feet are standing here in the Gates of Jerusalem." {Day 6 / Lent / Magdala}.

The 'middle' way.

A working example: "Although the conversation had floundered in my own ignorance, Mark quickly redirected it. From Steiner, he led the talk back, with little difficulty, to Theosophy, about which I knew a little, and then further back to the Hermetic "Brotherhood of Luxor,” about which (once again) I had to admit I knew nothing. It was clear that he was trying to find out from which direction I was coming, and where I was going, yet his questions were always kindly, and always articulately phrased." ['The Zelator'].

Side note: The pulpit is generally reserved for clergy. This is mandated in the regulations of the Catholic Church, and several others (though not always strictly observed). Even in Welsh Nonconformism, this was felt appropriate, and in some chapels a second pulpit was built opposite the main one for lay exhortations, testimonies and other speeches.[3] Many churches have a second, smaller stand called the lectern located in the Epistle side, which can be used by lay persons, and is often used for other Scripture lessons and ordinary announcements. The traditional Catholic location of the pulpit to the left side of the chancel or nave has been generally retained by Lutherans and many Anglicans,[4] while in Presbyterian and Baptist churches the pulpit is located in the centre behind the communion table.[5] Many modern Roman Catholic churches have an ambo that functions as both a pulpit and lectern."


Goddess of Dawn. Gateway to the light.

"The Huldah Gates (Hebrewשערי חולדהSha'arei Hulda) were one of the Gates of the Old City of Jerusalem leading into the Jerusalem Temple compound in the Hasmonean period and were named as such in the Mishnah.[1] The term is currently being used for the remains of two later sets of gates, the Triple Gate and the Double Gate, known together as the Huldah Gates,[2] built as part of the much extended Herodian Temple Mount, situated in Jerusalem's Old City.[3] Both sets of gates were set into the Southern Wall of the Temple compound and gave access to the Temple Mount esplanade by means of underground vaulted ramps.[3] Both were walled up in the Middle Ages. The western set is a double-arched gate (the Double Gate), and the eastern is a triple-arched gate (the Triple Gate).[3] There still are a few Herodian architectural elements visible outside and inside the gates, while most everything else of what we see today is later, Muslim-period work....

Side note: "The history of "esplanade" is completely on the level. The Italians created "spianata," for a level stretch of ground {balance?}, from their verb "spianare," which means "to make level." "Spianare" in turn comes from the Latin verb explanare, which also means "to make level" and which is the source of our verb "explain." Middle-French speakers borrowed "spianata" as "esplanade," and in the late 1500s we borrowed the French word. In the late 17th century, and even later, esplanades were associated with war....

Happy or Sad?

The word was used to refer to a clear space between a citadel and the nearest house of a town or to a slope around a fortification used for defence against attack. Today, however, esplanades are usually for enjoyment."

Pavilion / Collonade?

"An esplanade is a level open stretch of paved or grassy ground, often found near a river or large body of water. It is designed for walking or driving and provides a pleasant area for people to enjoy. Historically, esplanades were also used as clear fields of fire for fortress guns outside city walls. Nowadays, they are primarily used for leisure and enjoyment 1234For example, you might find a tree-lined esplanade by a river, perfect for seaside strolling, or an esplanade where people gather to watch events like fireworks displays "

Man in the moon?

Continued: The name "Huldah gates" is taken from the description of the Temple Mount in the Mishnah (Tractate of Midot 1:3). Two possible etymologies are given for the name: "Huldah" means "mole" or "mouse" in Hebrew, and the tunnels leading up from these gates called to mind the holes or tunnels used by these animals. Alternatively, in a possible folk etymology, the First Temple prophetess Huldah[4][5] was said to have held court in this area and, indeed, her tomb[6] was placed here by some as well.


Side note: ''The opposite is true for the December Solstice when summer begins in the Southern Hemisphere and winter starts in the North. The solstice (combining the Latin words sol for “Sun” and sistere for “To Stand Still”) is the point where the Sun appears to reach either its highest or lowest point in the sky for the year and thus ancient astronomers came to know the day as one where the Sun appeared to stand still.''


Day or night?

And/or: ''Equinoxes happen directly between the solstices and mark the beginning of the Spring and Fall seasons. The term equinox, like solstice, finds its origin in Latin with the roots aequus meaning “Equal” and nox meaning “Night.” Astronomers define the equinox as the moment the Earth’s Equator on its axis passes the same plane of the Sun’s equator, but its name reveals more of what we experience of these March and September dates here on Earth as most places on the planet on the day of the Equinox will experience roughly as much night time as day time, hence “Equal Night.” ['The Franklin Institute'].

Pyrite's meaning is purity and unblocks creativity....The pyrite group of minerals is a set of cubic crystal system minerals with diploidal structure. Each metallic element is bonded to SIX "dumbbell" pairs of non-metallic elements and each "dumbbell" pair is bonded to six metal atoms.'' [Wiki].

Easter bonnet. Rabbit out of the hat?

Continued: Something hinted at: "Quercetanus's daughter used in her process a 'powder of projection' - a material that was becoming a common rabbit in the alchemists hat, along with elixirs and philosophers stones. Supposedly a powder of projection {see Part 1} was a 'material' capable of 'transmuting' a metal into silver and gold..." ['The Chemistry of Alchemy'].

Analogy: ''As mentioned earlier, the king is gods intellect, represented by the three highest sefiroth, Kether, Chokhmah, and Binah. The feminine concept, through which we can recieve and grasp god's intellect, is Malkhuth, and hence it is referred to as 'The King's Daughter'.

A work in progress: ''Three of the Amarna letters - a collection of hundreds of cuneiform tablets discovered in Akhenaten's capital city of Akhetaten in the late 19th century - mention Meritaten using the name Mayati. In two of these letters, she is said to have quasi-royal status. After Nefertiti's death, however, Meritaten appears without her previous title of royal daughter, but as 'first lady' and later with a nearly royal rank....At least one artefact from Tutankhamun's tomb which belonged to the 'queen pharaoh', has two cartouches side by side, one with her coronation name, Ankhkheperure, and the other her birth name, Meritaten.'' [Page 35 'Archaeology' / September-October 2022].

A working {contemporary} example: ''I am only sure of the impact that my father's history had on me, his first born daughter, the first granddaughter of Jacob. At times this family story seems deeper than i will ever be able to plumb. But even in my limited uncovering, i feel a resonance.'' [Page xiv 'Daughters of Saturn' / Patrica Reis].


And/or: ''I had a dream while visiting my parents in the house my father built....I am sleepling in my old room in my childhood bed, and i dream that i am in this room, although i am now 44....I hear a great swelling sound of music which i identify as the 'music of the spheres'.... I find the sourse of this music through a second storey window looking onto the garden below....I see my father with flowing white hair and long white beard....sitting on farm equipment...looks like a thresher...playing it like a harp. What transpired BETWEEN the actual and real event is a long and painful daughter-father story - one filled with love and passion, rage and revenge, oppression, seperation, liberation, and much later, a sense of peace and reconcilation.''

" The Jabirian Islamic authors, assimilated ideas from east and west, proposed a 'material', an elixir, might be found that could cure the 'sick' metals {i.e.,lead, tin ,iron} and make them well {i.e., by way of silver and gold} - but they did not say they had it, just that it would be nice if they had."

A {working?} example: "Artemis, the mother-goddess of the temple, eventually became identified with the Roman goddess Diana, though their mythologies differed: Artemis was a goddess of fertility, whereas Diana was the virgin moon goddess of the hunt. Yet in the biblical story, and in the minds of the alchemist, the identities merged, and ''Diana'' became a symbol for silver..." [Same book].

Side note: {a working example}: Diane goes on the hunt for a 'treasure'. Gets to the final destination. As cool as they come. Not normally a gambler - but she gambles her small 'pot' for a hopefully bigger one. Must be a relation to 'Cool Hand Luke': 'Don't worry about it,' she says to Ben as the 'treasure' is almost got.'' ['Tipping Point' /ITV / 9.11.20].

Continued: 'Sun' and 'Moon'. Recall what they represent. Question. Why should the 'angel' Gabriel be linked to the 'moon'; and Michael to the 'sun'? What does it represent? Clue. Something of the 'higher' rather than the 'lower' - BUT both are equal, i.e.,you can't have one without the other; like opposite ends on the same pole? and/or - the tail end of something begins the process of something else?

Those eureka moments being a bridge between the two. The author of 'Cities of Dreams' giving information on only one of those aspects - all the way back to Neanderthal man, i.e., "So there we have the much vaunted religion of the sun, on the widely separated continents. In each case that religion is clearly little more than an outgrowth and an overgrowth of the much older, and still powerful, original moon worship." [Chapter 10 of same book]. You cannot have one without the other - for that understanding to take place. That ''understanding'' this 'subject' defines - of which Neanderthal man - was well aware of - or becoming aware of. i.e.,...

"Haematite, a Greek word meaning bloodstone, the official name for red ochre or red oxide of iron, is chemically Fe2 O3. This chemical substance is frequently produced by the weathering of magnetite, Fe3 O4. That is to say, when magnetite is exposed to the atmosphere at the earths surface, it turns into haematite. Digging down through the haematite one comes upon magnetite, and it is clear that the one substance turns into the other. In this excavating of red ochre Neanderthal man could not have failed to notice this phenomenon. As it happens, however, magnetite is highly magnetic. It is what is called in historical times the Lodestone [i.e., the 'leading stone']. If a small sliver of magnetite is floated on the surface tension of water, the sliver swings round until it points to magnetic north. Might it not well be that Neanderthal, accidentally or otherwise, discovered this 'magical' property of magnetite?'' [Charter 2, same book].

Understanding ''stones'' ''north'' ''incarnation'' amongst others, tells the reader what Neanderthal man was attempting to define about himself. His inner self. Using the moon and what he understood about it, as only one aspect within that learning process. That would define himself within the bigger picture. The Micro within the Macro. Summary enlarged elsewhere.

As one example: "Such an analysis serves also to check up and interpret mathematically the general findings of psychology concerning the progressive development of the human psyche and of its functions or modes of activity. It also verifies the ancient 'occult' idea of the division of human life into 7-year cycles, each of which marks the unfolding of one particular aspect of the individual's character and means of self expression. The first seven years see the development of the power of self awareness, or intuition - as understood by C. Jung. The young child sees everything in terms of personality. It is hard for him to differentiate between subjective and objective, inanimate and animate, because he lives so completely in a subjective world." [Page 190 'The Astrology of Personality' / Dane Rudhyar].

Cro-magnon versus Neanderthal man?

Continued: "He has an ''intuition'' of things rather than objective perceptions. He has not yet succumbed to the ''heresy of separateness'' which creates a chasm {'void'?} between subject and object {or other subjects}, between I and Thou. Thus the mystic, who strives to reach complete at-one-ment with the ALL {that ''bit''?} - is urged to become again ''as a little child'' - a stage which is related theoretically to the period after the third birth, between 56 and 63. This first septenate corresponds also to the infancy of mankind...." [Same page. Same book].

Another 'key'..."The reading of the literature of the hare also brings up another question: why is it that the hare figures in so many divergent cultures in particular examination of those relating to the hare might well be worth while, if only for the light they might throw on the origin and structure of those myths that are linked with other animals. But before starting on our inquiry we are putting forward the hypothesis that there is much more involved than this. The hare is an archetype: that is, as the name implies, one of the original nuclei or formation-patterns of awareness that primitive man used as a tool of communication to come to terms with his environment and also with the internal environment of his instincts and feelings".

"So the mighty reputation of mistletoe is then purely 'magical'. In support of that view, it had to be cut at certain times of the moon's cycle, with a sickle made of gold, and had to be caught in a white cloth so that it should not touch the ground, ['virgin' link. This readers input]. I am personally sure that the sickle must represent the crescent moon - and if it was made of gold rather than silver, that is perhaps because silver tarnishes so readily. Common mistletoe is an evergreen. Evergreens as a whole were favoured by the goddess, [also a link to 'Green Language'. This readers input], since they continue to grow among the other dead plants of winter, when the sun is also absent. The plant has a further remarkable property. If a spray of it is kept for several months, the 'whole' turns a golden colour. J. G. Frazer is convinced that here is the mystical 'Golden Bough' of classical legend...

In psychological terms, this would mean that the self has its roots in the body, indeed in the bodys chemical elements...The secret hidden in the roots is like a secret sealed inside a bottle {'glass'?}...this spirit is like the numen of the tree, its 'spiritus vegetativus', which is one of the definitions of Mercurius. As the 'life' principle of the tree it is a sort of spiritual quintessence abstracted from it and could also be described as the 'principium Individuationis'. The tree would then be the outward and visible sign of the realization of the self....The tree comparison occurs as early as Eulogius of Alexandria {600AD} who says: ''Behold in the Father the root, in the Son the branch {'yellow'?}, and in the Spirit the fruit {'red'?}; for the substance in the THREE IS ONE.''

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].

Try ''Mistletoe'' for a take on the same THEME.

''Its favourite host trees include apple, hawthorne and poplar trees. It prefers to grow on trees in open areas with plenty of light, rather than in dense woodlands. Keep a look out for mistletoe in parks, gardens and orchards....Despite its romantic reputation {'kissing under the tree at Xmas'}, mistletoe is actually poisonous to humans. It contains a toxic substance called phoratoxin, which is particularly concentrated in the leaves....''

What would the 'remedy' be? Wisdom?

Continued: ...Common mistletoe grows very rarely on the oak tree. But it was the oak mistletoe which was most prized. And it was the oak tree which was the most revered tree of all - not just by the Druids - they who knew the oak - but throughout the whole of Europe. Why should the oak be special? Because it is the tree which is most frequently struck by lightening."[Chapter 13 'Cities of Dreams'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Side note: "If one were briefly to characterize the transforming energy of life in Aries, one could say that it strikes from above, like lightening...One can say of Aries that it represents the awakening of conscious activity - from 'unconscious' sleep...Thus in Aries, the transformation energy comes from outside the organism - whereas {as an example} in Leo it has its source inside...Because he stands at the beginning of cycles of manifestation, he has a longing for the fulfilment of the end of cycles...Aries represents the 'upper' pole; Capricorn, the 'lower' one.

greenThink about it relative to - inspiration - by way of a 'lightening strike'. Evergreen / mistletoe / golden sickle / indicative of something becoming known [hence the link to the 'moon' - what it represents. What it represents that is to a subject - as a whole - not just a woman's menstrual cycle in relation to a single hypothesis]. The golden sickle represents that boundary line between dark and light ['silver / gold' and/or 'moon / sun']. In other words from something unknown to becoming known. Representing the use of a 'tool' to imply that potential; that end result; that transition of a ''boundary'' line. That final known quantity represented as a 'process' in the making.

"The last of the two 'children' of Nut and Geb, Auset and her 'consort' [Asar] enjoyed the longest and most revered treatment in Egyptian religion. As the fourth born, the number four is especially associated with her, and was regarded by the Egyptians to be a fortunate day, number and configuration. In the Pythagorean symbolism derived from the Sacred science, the number four represents physical manifestation and established existence, an appropriate value assigned to the Neter ['god'] who brings forth to fruition and gives 'birth.' The Osirian mythos praises her maternity of the child Heru [Horus], the particulars of which share a strong resemblance to the later Christian accounts of the birth of the savior. In this role the Neter fulfills the ''Principle of Fruition.'' The 'thet' symbol was specific to Auset; it is often referred to as the ''buckle'' or ''girdle'' of the Neter. It is said to represent her 'womb', which brings forth all earthly life. In amulet form it was worn to grant an individual access to the ''secret places in the Duat''. [Same chapter, same book].

From a different perspective {but 'golden' nuggets to be found}: ''According to the text, the figure following behind the sacrificer is named the ''Meridian of the Sun,'' and his head is to be cut off. This striking off of the golden head is also found in the manuscripts of Splendor Solis as well as in the Rorschach printing of 1598. The 'sacrifice' in the vision is of an initiate who has undergone the experience of solificatio. In alchemy, sun is synonymous with gold. Gold, as Michael Maier says, is the ''circulatory work of the sun,''  ''shining CLAY MOULDED into the most beauteous sustance, wherein the solar rays are gathered together and shine forth.''  [Page 72 'Alchemical Studies'].

And/or: ''A UK metal detectorist has unearthed a rare 1,400-year-old Anglo-Saxon sword harness pyramid crafted in gold and garnet from India or Sri Lanka.

'Spirit' or 'Soul'?

This tiny, bejeweled treasure was discovered in April in Breckland, Norfolk, east England, by amateur archaeologist and metal detectorist Jamie Harcourt. The rare artifact dates to 560-630 AD and was used to hold a warrior’s sword in its scabbard while riding. It is thought to have been lost by a wealthy-warrior serving an Anglo-Saxon king at a time when the modern English county of Norfolk was part of the Kingdom of East Anglia.

“Sword harness pyramids” usually come in pairs and they pinned down two leather clasps that stopped swords jumping out of their scabbards when on horseback. However, the exact way in which the pyramids were attached to the swords and scabbards is not clear because the leather usually rots away.''

The 'minds eye' from a different perspective. Can u 'see' it?

Continued: ''The lid formed part of an ensemble of richly decorated fittings to the clothing and weapon worn by the body that were probably made as a set. These consist of a gold belt buckle, and gold and garnet shoulder-clasps, sword harness and scabbard mounts.

Sweat of the brow.

In particular the purse used a combination of small and large pieces of garnet in a way comparable to the shoulder-clasps.[4] The burial can be seen as a dramatic expression of the aspirations of East Anglian royalty, within which the ensemble of regalia is a careful construct; it situates the owner in a dual inheritance of coin-distributing, sceptre-wielding late Roman consuls, and Germanic warrior culture, with its rich iconography of powerful animals, gods and victors.

The lid consists of a kidney-shaped cellwork frame enclosing a sheet of horn, on which were mounted pairs of exquisite garnet cellwork plaques depicting birds, wolves devouring men, geometric motifs and a double panel showing animals with interlaced extremities. The maker derived these images from the ornament of the Swedish-style helmets and shield-mounts also in the burial. In his work they are transferred into the cellwork medium with dazzling technical and artistic virtuosity.


Sutton Hoo purse clasp: Wolfs / eagles and ducks.

On the outside of the lid there are symmetrical images of a man surrounded by two wolves, a version of the ancient Master of Animals motif. In between these images are two more symmetrical figures, this time depicting an eagle swooping down upon its prey. To the ancient Anglo-Saxons, these images probably held great significance, but to modern historians it is difficult to be sure of the symbolism in these figures. It is possible that the heraldic composition of the men and the wolves alludes to the family name of the Sutton Hoo ship burial – the Wuffingas, or Wolf's People. They could also, along with the eagle, exhibit power, heroism, and courage.[4] Above the animal and human figures the artists inlaid abstract designs.''

baldric2SIDE NOTE: Simplified {in the present sense of the word}: "What we call 'evil' is the manifestation of a soul considerably out of balance - evil is the disharmony of the soul. Hell is not a place, but a state of mind. Both poles are necessary to find the perfection of balance which leads us to what the Bible calls heaven. Again, heaven is not a place, but a state of mind - a state of being. It is by experiencing too much negative and too much positive that we find the balance between them. 'Evil' is when this experience is taken to extremes. All of creation is constantly seeking the neutral point between conflicting forces. In the modern world the masculine polarity has been dominant at the expense of the caring, compassionate, receptive, feminine. It has been grab and take rather than help and give. The next age will seek to redress the imbalance. Male and female polarities, i should point out, are within us all, it is not a man/woman division. It is a cosmic law that when two forces, male/female, positive/negative, unite, a third force is 'created'. This could be where the concept of the religious Trinity originates - the Father-Mother-Son or, in Western religions where the feminine has been discarded, the Father-Son-Holy Spirit {divine 'bit' link}. It is the interplay between the positive and negative poles of each entity that keeps energy vibrating at a particular rhythm and sets one vibration apart from another..." ['Truth Vibrations'. Parenthesis, this readers].
Try ''polarity'' to see it in its universal context. Recall J. Campbells quote.

Feet on firm ground?

Continued: Analogy of same - with something extra..."The greater vision of unity lies in the transformations of the goddess, the dancer at the 'heart of the rose'. This is a mystery to be found also in the legends of the Holy Grail and the secret of the jewel in the head of the alchemical toad {or frog?}. That which fell from the crown of the fallen Son of the Morning. Reflect upon these deep things. And thus may the wisdom of the stars shine in your brow {'mantle'?}, the grail of love flow from your heart, the waters of life encompass your loins, and the stones of the Earth support your feet. This is the image and function of redeemed humankind, the new Adam and new Eve, conjoined in the new heaven/earth, the new Avalon where the green 'apples' have turned to gold."

Fork in the road?

''Absolute Unity is the hidden 'god' of the Hebrews, the unknown 'god' who is incomprehensible; the unutterable of the Egyptians {i.e., Amun = ''hidden''}.....As soon as 'Unity' slits into two, presenting the two facets of any comprehensible thing {i.e., as one example represented as male' and 'female'} - there is Trinity....It is found at the origin of all things {''child'' link}.....The world emanates from the god of gods - ''he contemplates his own face''.

And/or:  "He who aspires to be a sage and to know the Great Enigma of Nature must be the heir
and despoiler of the Sphinx: his the human head {Aries?} - in order to posses speech; his the

furrow the depths; his the lions talons, to make a way on the right and the left, before and
behind {Aker?}." [Quote taken from the chapter entitled 'The Candidate' from the book by E.
The real questions, however, remain the same.

'Higher' / 'lower' ?

"We pointed out above that the law of the tower of Babel is universal, i.e., that it works both in individual biography and in humanity - and even in other hierarchies. The point of this 'law' is that all autonomous activity from below inevitably 'meets' with divine reality above. What one has built through the autonomous effort of the ''lower self'' must, sooner or later, be confronted by divine reality, and undergo the effects of comparison with it..."[Extract from the book by Tomberg].


Try ''Blasted Tower''.
REFRESHER: Question. Abu Ruash - Egypt's most northern pyramid - A collapsed one. Built on a hill.
Analogy: "My impressions of Dinas Emrys were surprising, as I had not expected much. I knew that local legend and traditional history associated it with king Vortigern's tower, and that there was a ruined structure on its summit." ['The Way of Merlin'].
If Egypt's most northern 'pyramid' equates to something ''undermined'' WHERE would its opposite {firm feet?} be represented?
Question. Was Djedfre known as a good guy or a not so good one? {mythologically speaking}.
And/or: ''Lower'' in relation to ''fall' in relation [indirectly] to ''lucifer'' as a means to an understanding relative to awakening of something [represented as a u-turn?] in the positive sense = crossover point?
mali (2)

Mali. The Hero. Higher over lower?

The word ''comparison'' eventually links up to incarnation/reincarnation; on a day by day basis.

Understanding the above defines the following - or at least enables that possibility to arise -
"The 'dark night' is a certain inflowing of 'god' into the soul which cleanses it of its ignorance
and imperfections, habitual, natural and spiritual..." [Same book / 'letter 16' ].
As seen from a different perspective:

'Broken sword' as a bolt of lightening? 'Dog' in 'lower' half?

"The Flaming Door is perhaps Eleanor Merry's most famous work and made an important contribution to the renewal of Celtic mythology. Slumbering in the ancient saga's and legendsare the secrets of initiation: when men and women found their way through the 'flashing door''{sword' link?} - the threshold between the physical and spiritual worlds." ['The Flaming Door' / E. C. Merry].

''Sword'' in relation to the 'Garden of Eden'. ''Threshold'' in relation to a 'void' {Hebrew 'daath'].
Understanding the above gives an answer to the question on Moses {at the beginning of the page]. Before those bigger two questions are asked.
"This wonderful old Oglala Sioux priest explained to the young scholar, Joseph Epes Brown, who had come to the Pine Ridge Reservation [South Dakota] expressively to gain knowledge first hand, of the mystic dimension within American Indian mythology of...the image of the man consumed by snakes...
"Any man who is attached to the senses and things of this world", he said, "is one who lives in ignorance and is therefore being consumed by the snakes that represent his own passions."

Trickster or devilish imp? Question. Has someone pinched someone's hair gel?

"Lucifer attacks us in different ways. 'Lucifer' makes us liable to make mistakes. He endowed matter with a glamour that would dazzle people and blind them to higher truths. He injected a paradoxical, tricky quality into the heart of the universe and at the same time injected a perverse quality into our hearts that responds to the 'tricky' quality 'out there' [link to, 'like attracts like'. This readers input].

It is because of 'lucifer' that, as St Paul puts it, 'the good i would do, i do not, but the 'evil' i would not do, i do.' St Paul, who as we shall see was an initiate of the Mystery tradition, is saying that part of me always knows what is right, but that it is often overruled by a part that is in thrall to 'lucifer'.... ....This is right at the heart of what it is to be human. There is no easy way out and no easy answer. The road is always fraught with the danger of 'death', but if we do not take that road, we will die in our beds without ever having lived. In other words we must put at risk what we value most, [link to wants/needs in this 'material' world. This readers input]. Or we will lose it anyway. Beyond a certain point, there is no return. That point must be reached." [Chapter 3, 'The Sacred History'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Understanding this subject, according to the same authors, takes the individual up to, and beyond that point.

''Primordial Mound'' link?

diazAnalogy {abstract?} with same intent {principle?} in mind..."Tis an ill wind that blows NO minds." Quote from the book 'Cosmic Trigger' by R. A. Wilson.

The words 'Lucifer' and 'Satan' both symbolic of something else, other than the obvious. I.e., 'Lucifer' a link to the 'fall'. The word 'Satan' more a link to the 'material' world. Both relative to that 'inner understanding' of something. Potential of. [See chapter 4, 'The Secret History of the World'].

Refresher: Understanding this subject, according to the same authors, takes the individual up to, and beyond that point.

"That's why it is unwise to posit Heaven and Hell as eternal contraries. There are subtle or crude graduations within these states, and Satan himself finds his redemption in Lucifer, who is sublimation into spiritual light." ['Journey into the Light'].

As a {working?} example: "This Khonsu is somehow a new, spiritualised Atum, and this one will make Horus reappear in all his glory. This Horus-lucifer whom Seth held bound in Ptah; for Seth is the one who shackles and incarcerates...Horus is delivered from evil represented by Seth; the earthly jailor from the beginning of time." ['Sacred Science'].

Try ''Khonsu'' to 'see' something further - if only in attempting to define subject material within {say} a ''landscape''.

Side note: "Allegories must always be sought in the teaching evoked by their imagery. So for the legend of Ra, or Isis', struggle to save her son Horus from the domination of the scorpion, symbol of Seth..." Same book.

Try ''scorpion'' and/or Ra in relation to Atum, and both in relation to Amun to place the parts within the whole - in order to define the 'mind set' of those that attempt to define something internal.

Side note: A very good book to 'evaluate' such 'relationships' would be 'Egyptian Book of the Dead' / M. Ashby.

'The Scorpion King' ? While recalling that Orion was stung by same. And placed 'opposite' in the night sky.

''As above, so below.'' If Scorpion 'King' represents one half of something THEN what [who?} does Orion represent?

trickster3Continued: "It is more than pure and simple healing which is the object of sacred 'magic'; it is the restoration of freedom, including here the freeing of the imprisonment of doubt, fear, hate, apathy and despair. The ''evil spirits'' which deprive man of his freedom, are not at all beings of the so-called ''hierarchies of evil'' or ''fallen hierarchies''. Neither Satan nor Belial, nor Lucifer, nor Mephistopheles have ever deprived anyone of his freedom. Temptation is there only weapon and this presupposes the freedom of he who is tempted [as a representation of something. This readers input]. But possession by an ''evil spirit'' has nothing to do with temptation. It is invariably the same thing with Frankenstein's monster. One engenders an 'elemental' being and one subsequently becomes the slave of ones own 'creation'.

Bridge over troubled waters?

The ''demons'' or ''evil'' spirits of the New Testament are called today in psychotherapy ''neuroses of obsession'' - ''neuroses of fear'' - ''fixed ideas'', etc. They have been discovered by contemporary psychiatrists and are recognized as real - i.e., as ''parasitic psychic organisms'' independent of the conscious human will and tending to subjugate it." [Taken from 'letter three' of the book by Tomberg].

Feeling better? ''Freedom'' in relation to 'primary' and 'secondary'. Enlarged elsewhere. All the above a link to what {within this subject is defined/labelled} as the ''guardian at the gate.''

''Freewill is the greatest 'giant' in the land." Try ''giant''.

Side note: How would the word in bold print be represented?

'Devil in the details'.

"It is thought that the word Saxon derives from seax {a small sword/knife}. Possession of a knife signified the status of a  FREE person in early Anglo Saxon society. It would be suspended from a belt." ['Digging For Britain' / S9 EP1].

The name of the Saxons may derive from a kind of knife associated with the ethnos; such a knife has the name seax in Old English, Sax in German, sachs in Old High German, and sax in Old Norse.[8][9] The seax has had a lasting symbolic impact in the English counties of Essex and Middlesex, both of which feature three seaxes in their ceremonial emblem. The names of these counties, along with the names "Sussex" and "Wessex", contain a remnant of the root of the word "Saxon".

The Elizabethan-era play Edmund Ironside suggests that the name "Saxon" derives from the Latin saxa (stones; singular form: saxum):[10]

Their names discover what their natures are, More hard than stones, and yet not stones indeed.


Ladder no longer required. ''Gap'' {void} now filled {attained?}. Hebrew equivalent. All within the 'form' of the Vesica Pisces {i.,e.,middle 'bit'}. Anything?

Continued: "In the Theosophical and Tarot tradition, the moon represents unconscious desires and the fears that accompany the senses of losing control or falling into the unconscious realm of sleep and dreams. However, if one is afraid to enter one's own 'astral' {look it up} territory, one can never truly know oneself - and the mystery of initiation is about little more than this. The real confrontation that the 'moon' represents is the meeting with the 'Dweller on the Threshold' of which esoteric teachers speak. This is the giant force of accumulated negatives or wrongdoings, the hideous part of the self that a person would rather not look at and would like to pretend doesn't exist, and which rises up at the point of real psychic growth. This 'demon' must not only be looked at, but integrated into the being, in order to establish wholeness...There is a line in 'Jacobs ladder', a film... where a character paraphrases a mystical saying: 'If you're holding on, then angels seem like demons, tearing your life away, but if you let go, you'll see them as angels, freeing you'. It is very true. Heart-breaking so...The gates and their guardians in the initiatory path are also found in the Tibetan Bardo Thodol, and the ancient Egyptian Book of Coming Forth by Day...They are a useful map of the initiatory process that becomes engaged when you start to seek truth and flee falsity." [Extract from the book 'The Magister'. Mentioned elsewhere].

For a working example try Q. S. Lam.

'The Triumph of the Moon' / R. Hutton.

The above author {if only for this reader} employing such dramatic {in your face?} phrases as ''giant forces'' and ''hideous parts of'' and ''heartbreaking so'' - to define something - within a natural 'course of events' - in relation to a learning curve. Something less dramatic {yet abstract} could be...

One or 'two' lions? Red lion or Green one?

Mother Russia's Prince of Peace. R.I.P.

"...This silence in itself is a mighty symbol. It is the stillness of the great feminine archetype, whether in the silence of the Sephirah Binah on the Tree of Life, the great Temple of form of all the spheres; or in the great silent UNmanifest Sea of the Ain Sof beyond Kether, the ultimate 'feminine principle'. In the silence a 'unicorn' approaches wearing a golden collar. It bows to the 'lion'. The lion thereupon breaks the sword in two, and casts the pieces into the waters of the fountain. The testing having been done, the way to the higher worlds is clear, and the lion no longer bars the way. The roaring lion in the path, the Dweller on the Threshold or Shadow Self, is no longer a barrier to progress. A white 'dove' now appears with an olive branch of peace and wisdom. The lion 'devours' it and is quieted, and the unicorn joyfully departs." [Extract from 'The Rose Cross and the Goddess' by G. Knight].

Hence: "...the single horn had been 'seeded' by the imaginative faculties...'' ['The Zelator']. 'See' it? ALL AS A MEANS...? Try ''horn''.

Cognitive faculty link?

'Thirtytwo' above {vertical}. 'Twentyfour' below {horizontal}.

Egypts equivalent. Horizontal = 'horizon'. And/or: ''Aker was an ancient earth-god in Egypt. He was believed to guard the gates of the dawn from which the sun rose each morning. He was portrayed as a double-headed lion.'' Question. What represents a 'dawning' - the beginning of something brand new? Spots/Stripes?

A working example: ''As a result of the eventual unification of India {Mauryan Dynasty}, which involved terrible bloodshed and loss of life, Ashoka became a committed Buddhist and adopted the lion as the symbol of a new era of peace - because the Buddha belonged to the Shakya, or Lion Clan and the emperor was his devout follower - a mighty ruler of his kingdom, like the lion that rules the forest. Ashoka ruled his kingdom using the principle of universal truth and divine law, or dharma, which he understood to include such characteristics as honesty, compassion, mercy, benevolence, nonviolence, and kindness to animals....Represented with four lions sitting back-to-back atop an abacus decorated with wheels and other animals. The wheel signifies the wheel of law in Buddhism, and its thirtytwo spokes represent the 32 physical attributes of Buddha.'' [Page 37 'Archaeology' / Sep-Oct 2023].

32x2 = 'sixtyfour'.

Refresher: ''Monarchy of the eye in relation to the democracy of the nose.''

From a different perspective {a more 'grounded' one}: ''The 'magician' is the arcanum of the wholeness of consciousness, or concentration without effort. Force is the arcanum of the  natural integrity of BEING, or power without effort. Because force subdues the 'lion' not by force similar to that of the lion BUT rather by a force of a higher order and on a higher plane....The 'Virgin' tames the lion and thereby invites us to leave the plane of quantity....for the plane of quality.''   Page 275 'Meditations on the Tarot'].

Analogy: Persepolis ( 'Throne of Jamshid') was the ceremonial capital of the Achaemenid Empire (c. 550–330 BC). It is situated in the plains of Marvdasht, encircled by southern Zagros mountains of the Iranian plateau. Modern day Shiraz is situated 60 km (37 mi) southwest of the ruins of Persepolis. The earliest remains of Persepolis date back to 515 BC. It exemplifies the Achaemenid style of architecture. UNESCO declared the ruins of Persepolis a World Heritage Site in 1979.[2]
The complex is raised high on a walled platform, with five "palaces" or halls of varying size, and grand entrances. The function of Persepolis remains unclear.'' UNIVERSAL MINDSET?

''The lion capital is among the first group of significant stone sculptures to have appeared in South Asia after the end of the Indus Valley Civilisation 1,600 years earlier. Their sudden appearance, as well as similarities to Persepolitan columns of Iran before the fall of the Achaemenid Empire in 330 BCE, have led some to conjecture an eastward migration of Iranian stonemasons among whom the tradition of naturalistic carving had been preserved during the intervening decades. Others have countered that a tradition of erecting columns in wood and copper had a history in India and the transition to stone was but a small step in an empire and period in which ideas and technologies were in a state of flux. The lion capital is rich in symbolism, both Buddhist and secular....The whole structure is 2.1 metres (7 ft) tall, carved out of a single block of sandstone and highly polished, was secured to its monolithic column by a metal dowel. Erected after Ashoka's conversion to Buddhism, it commemorated the site of Gautama Buddha's first sermon some two centuries before....

Stone/metal/ a means?

In July 1947, Jawaharlal Nehru, the interim prime minister of India, proposed in the Constituent Assembly of India that the wheel on the abacus be the model for the wheel in the centre of the Dominion of India's new national flag, and the capital itself without the lotus the model for the state emblem. The proposal was accepted in December 1947.''

From another perspective {the 'pagan' one?}: "Lastly I would like to acknowledge not another person, but a realization. It is both known and expected that portions of this book will incite many conflicting feelings {Gemini?} within its reader, as several of the prime concepts defy standard norms of esoteric and social practice. But this kind of 'stirring up' is precisely the type of THRESHOLD EVENT that the Druids themselves would have engendered....The Druids great motto: Y GWIR YN ERBYN BYD = 'The truth against the world', has one key word in its midst, which encapsulates this message perfectly.

Upstream or Downstream?

Question. {as seen from a different perspective, i.e.,that final sentence}: Tower of Babel v Gnosis? Middle ground = ''threshold'' ? Try that one.

Exercise: Apply those ''imaginative faculties'' by way of the cognitive one to 'see' the Egyptian analogy of same: "Leo, however, becomes Virgo. And that metamorphosis is expressed in the mysteries symbol of the Sphinx, Guardian of the path {gate?} to the Gt. Pyramid. The Sphinx is a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head of a 'Virgin' {androgyne link}. It represents therefore, that process which unites the energies of the two zodiacal signs, Leo and Virgo; a human process, in which the personalised emotion power of the human ego {N.B. 'feelings' represented with Gemini} - THE LION - King of the beasts - King of the desert - transforms itself into the potentiality and expectancy of the 'virgin woman', waiting for the fecundity - within the sanctuary of the pyramid. This may seem an unnecessary complex riddle {link to the Sphinx riddle. Enlarged elsewhere} - But ancient symbols have great value - if only because they compel one to avoid the pitfall of ''taking things for granted''. By making things difficult, they force the mind to dig down into the roots of reality and to fathom deeply unconscious vital processes." ['The Zodiac as the Universal Matrix' / Dane Rudhyar].
